By Rachel Christian Staff Writer e tense topic of gun safety legislation drew a standing-room only crowd and sparked lively debate at St. Clouds Community Center Saturday aernoon. U.S. Congressman Darren Soto (D-Kissimmee) held a town hall meeting to eld questions from constituents over gun laws in the wake of a February school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that le 17 people dead. Soto kicked o the town hall by dening the term assault weapon. He used the denition set forth in the decade-long federal assault weapons ban, which characterizes the items as semiautomatic rearms with a large magazine ammunition that were designed and congured for rapid re or combat use. Soto added that the sweeping Florida gun bill signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott last month that places limitations on guns, such as bump stock sales and minimum age requirements for purchasers, but does not place restrictions on the sale or manufacturing of assault weapons. Five Point Gun Safety Action Plan Soto then described a set of federal eorts he called his Five Point Gun Safety Action Plan. The first three points were specially requested by Marjory Stoneman Douglas By Ken Jackson Sports Editor Victoria Rios, the thenteenager who police say lured a Poinciana man to the door on the night of his eventual 2013 murder, will be sentenced on Friday for her role in the crime. Ninth Circuit Judge Jon B. Morgan set the sentencing for 3 p.m. e plan was for a sentence to be rendered on April 6, but a defense expert medical witness expected to testify was ill and unavailable. Defense attorney Michael Nichola also said he would likely be reading impact statements from Rios family and other supporters at that time. The parents, maternal grandfather and other family members of victim Eric Roopnarine, present for almost every hearing in the nearly ve-year-old case, showed audible disgust that the case would extend another week, as some come from New York for each one. Weve waited so long already for these trials to be over, said Pooran Roopnarine, the victims father, who wrote an impassioned victim impact statement. It, along with one from Erics mother, Sarita, was read by Assistant State Attorney Gabrielle Sanders. e state charged Rios, 21, with rst-degree murder and armed burglary. A jury found her guilty on both charges on April 26, 2017, aer a dierent jury could not come to a unanimous verdict in June 2016. Roopnarine, 23, was killed late on July 3, 2013.

County commissioners greenlighted an Opioid Cost Recovery and Public Nuisance ordinance this week that makes powerful claims about the deadly and costly impact opioid addiction is having on the community. What the lawsuit claims The measure asserts that the distribution and sale of powerful prescription narcotic pain medications has created a public safety hazard thats led to significant healthcare, family and social services, criminal justice and rehabilitation program costs for the county. e local legislation allows the county to retroactively recover damages from the responsible party through legal or criminal action, along with attorneys fees, interest and any other payment or damages the court decrees proper. But County Attorney Andrew Mai said the ordinance is aimed less at the individuals who may sell or buy the drugs, and more Rios to be sentenced Friday for 2013 Poinciana murderLawmaker talks state, federal gun safety at St. Cloud town hallAnd heres the pitch!NEWS-GAZETTE PHOTO/ROBERT JOHN HERBERT Chad Sobotka pitched during the home opener for the Florida Fire Frogs as they played the Daytona Tortugas at Osceola County Stadium on Saturday.

LAWSUITContinued from Page 1 at the corporations that manufacture and profit from addictive opioids. Language in Mondays measure shares similarities with a groundbreaking lawsuit the county filed against more than 20 Big Pharma companies earlier this year, including the maker of OxyContin and corporations like Johnson & Johnson. Mai said the ordinance and lawsuit are meant to hold large companies accountable for costs incurred by the county due to recent spikes in opioid abuse and overdoses among residents. The first in Florida, but a growing trend Osceola became the first county in Florida to le such a suit against pharmaceutical companies for this reason. New York-based law firm Napoli Shkolnik signed professional service contracts with Osceola County in November, along with more than 100 other municipalities nationwide that are undergoing similar litigation cases. Napoli Shkolnik is taking the case on for free due to a contingency clause, but if the rm wins the case, it stands to receive 25 percent of total damages awarded. The suit, currently in circuit court, asserts claims including that drug companies put their desires for making money above the well-being of consumers by using a deceptive and unfair marketing campaign to get doctors and patients to use the powerful drugs to treat chronic pain long-term, rather than short-term, as was originally intended. Mai said it is still being determined how much money the county stands to gain if they emerge as victors in the upcoming legal battle. Legal precedence? is isnt the rst time Osceola County has taken major legal action against big-name corporations. About 10 years ago, Mai said the local government entered a suit against several large online travel websites, including Expedia and Orbitz. e county claimed that the defending companies werent paying a fair share of tourism development taxes, though the websites business models profited from site visitors who spent tourism dollars in Osceola County. A nearly identical suit ended up before the Supreme Court, but the county ultimately lost its case when the countrys highest court ruled in favor of the online travel companies. Because it included the same kind of contingency clause as the new opioid lawsuit, Osceola County didnt lose money in the case 10 years ago, but it didnt walk away with anything, either. Mai said hes more confident in the new opioid case then he was in the tourism tax suit, which tended to be more subjective and less factdriven. How long will it all take? Litigation is not a speedy process, Mai said, and he anticipates the ordeal to last anywhere from three to ten years, depending on if it goes to trial or settles out of court. If the county wins the suit, the money left over aer attorney fees will be deposed into the countys General Fund, Mai said. County commissioners will then be responsible for how that money is spent. It would then be up to them to decide what would be the appropriate use for that money, whether it would go toward potential treatment centers, the cost of the jail, or more law enforcement, Mai said. Latest federal, state responses to opioid crisis Responses to the opioid crisis are taking place at all levels of government. Last month, President Donald Trump signed a spending plan that included $4.6 billion to fight the national opioid crisis. It was one of the few inclusions on the total $1.3 trillion budget appropriation that received bi-partisan support. State lawmakers also weighed in on the issue during the recent legislative session. A new law signed by Gov. Rick Scott in March sets aside about $53 million, in addition to funds in the budget signed last month, which brings the total to about $65 million, for enhanced opioid treatment, law enforcement response and supply a life-saving overdose reversal drug to overdose victims via rst responders. The new law serves as Floridas first piece of legislation to address the opioid epidemic. City of Kissimmee celebrates telecommunicators with special week By Victoria Sovran For the News-Gazette Going unseen and oen unrecognized, they are the rst line of help in any and every emergency. This week, the police dispatchers and telecommunicators of Kissimmee are stepping into the celebratory spotlight. April 9-15 is celebrated as National Telecommunicators Week. The city of Kissimmee is honoring its telecommunicators with several special events and treats planned throughout the week. The Kissimmee Police Department command sta is washing all the dispatchers cars and cooking dinner on two nights. e city of Kissimmee is providing a massage therapist who will be available to dispatchers during each shift for two days. e telecommunicators will have themed dress up days as well as an ice cream social. Kissimmees re and police department have donated furniture for the 911 Centers breakroom. What most people dont realize is just how demanding and dicult this job actually is, Kissimmee Police Chief Je ODell said. Telecommunicators do not have the luxury of seeing what is going on. ey can only create a mental picture based on what is conveyed over the telephone or police radio. Telecommunicator Supervisor Brandon Retherford said, Im proud to work alongside such fine emergency telecommunicators. ey are highly skilled and highly trained individuals, who behind the scenes and without much recognition or fanfare, make life and death split second decisions every day. A 2012 study conducted by North Illinois University found that police dispatchers have a risk of developing symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder from the emotional stress of taking dutyrelated calls. e study was published in the Journal of Traumatic Stress. is is an opportunity for us to recognize the outstanding service our Telecommunicators provide to the agency and to the citizens of Kissimmee, ODell said. ey are the calm voice in every situation PHOTO/CITY OF KISSIMMEE The city of Kissimmee is honoring its telecommunicators with several special events and treats planned throughout the week.

STARTING AT$51,497New RIOSContinued from Page 1 in the evening with the prospect of committing an act of prostitution while riding from Kissimmee as Juan Muriel drove Konrad Schafers fathers SUV to his home. Schafer and David Damus were riding along. According to prosecutors, Rios knocked on Roopnarines door, and when he answered, Schafer and Damus rushed in and demanded money, armed with a Hi-Point Carbineaction rie. Friday, a pair of psychologists testified that Rios has an IQ of 75, borderline for intellectual disability, suffered from depression and anxiety, was a textbook case of childhood trauma, which made her vulnerable to manipulation, and former peers had attempted to sexually exploit her for money. Lothar Schafer, Konrads father, bought Konrad the gun in late June 2013. The son then used it to shoot into homes and cars over the next two weeks, keeping much of Osceola County on edge, and reportedly shoot and kill David Guerrero, 17, on June 26. Lothar Schafer served six months in jail for making a weapon available to a minor for use in a felony. On Jan. 15, 2016, Konrad Schafer pled guilty to two counts of first-degree murder, and on April 15 was sentenced to consecutive 40-year prison terms. Because he was a juvenile at the time of the killings, his case will be reviewed aer 25 years. In 2015, Damus was convicted of first-degree murder and sentence to life in prison. Muriel, in a plea agreement, accepted a 10-year prison sentence and five years of probation in exchange for his testimony against his co-defendants. LAWMAKERContinued from Page 1 High School students when they traveled to Washington D.C. during the March For Our Lives rally last month. Those three points included the reimplementation of the federal assault weapons ban, a ban on high-capacity magazine clips and stricter mandatory background checks. Soto also voiced support for his fourth point, HR 1982, a bill aimed at implementing a red ag system that would take firearms away from those with severe mental illnesses. Florida already signed its own red flag system into law last month. The measure gives law enforcement greater authority to seize guns and ammunition on a shortterm basis from those deemed mentally unt. The last provision on Sotos five-point plan is a piece of legislation commonly referred to as the No Fly, No Buy measure that would bar people listed on the federal governments no-fly list from legally purchasing rearms. One of the more than 81,000 names on the FBIs terrorism watch list as of early 2014 was Omar Mateen, the shooter who murdered 49 people during the 2016 Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting. Stoneman Douglas alum speaks Several guest speakers, including a Marjory Stoneman Douglas alum and Osceola County Sheri Russ Gibson, spoke before public comment began. Mike Parker, a 2000 graduate of the Parkland High School and a University of Central Florida alum, spoke about organizing eorts between himself and other Douglas High graduates following the shooting. He asked for the audience to keep an open mind about gun law reform. We will work and we will vote so that no other families have to go through this, Parker said. Its very clich to say you dont know what its like until it eects you personally. I just hope no one in this room has to ever nd out what its like. Public comment heats up Timber Creek High School senior Thomas Mitchell asked Soto what he had to say to students who are scared to go to school each day. Soto recapped his Five Point Gun Safety Action Plan, and encouraged the teenager to continue the wave of political involvement spearheaded by young people following the shooting in Parkland. As with any movement, it takes years of advocacy, Soto said. It cant just be a fad that lasts a few months. Any great change in this country has taken years. There was plenty of opposition from residents who bucked at the thought of any major or lasting gun reform. Local resident Steve Carr voiced a popular opinion held by many town hall meeting attendees that legislative reform should focus on mental health funding, not gun reform. How many people who own AR-15s didnt go out and shoot someone today? asked Carr, a lifelong NRA member who also said he was attending his rst town hall meeting. Carr went on to say he was in favor of background checks, especially at events like gun shows, but emphasized that he believed guns were necessary for personal protection. Carr also asked Gibson how effective school security resource officers would be in Osceola County, since armed SROs failed to put a stop to Nikolas Cruz, the Douglas High shooter. Our procedure is that if there is ring, our deputies are going in, Gibson replied, sparking a wave of applause from the audience. We do not run away from the danger. We do not wait for back-up. When our kids are in danger, we take care of it. In response to the question of mental health, Soto said it was important for the FBI and other organizations to take warning signs and threats more seriously in order to prevent mass violence. He also discussed a bipartisan push to make sure that the Department of Children and Families is following-up and intervening in cases more consistently. A new Florida school safety law is also set to allocate $69 million to schools for mental health funding. Resident Tracy Issacs echoed Carrs concern over mental health. We are constantly encroaching on these laws that, I think, is completely unconstitutional, Issacs said. Were not making the rules where were needing them, which is to hold people accountable for allowing somebody of this caliber to fall through the cracks. Resident Glenda White asked Soto what kind of due process would be in place to protect citizens and mental health patients who may have their firearms taken away under a Red Flag system. Soto explained that a hearing would be held and judges would make the nal call on when an individual could get their rearms back. Sotos stance on the 2nd Amendment In response to several residents who questioned Sotos support for the Second Amendment, he referred to the primary Supreme Court decision handed down in 2008, the District of Columbia v. Heller, which defined the constructional boundaries of gun ownership. In that case, the court decided that the right to bear arms is not unlimited, and that guns and gun ownership may continue to be regulated. For example, an automatic weapons ban has been in place for years, and the decade-long federal assault weapons ban was never found unconstitutional. It is clear, based on what the Supreme Court has told me as a member of Congress, is that it is not an unlimited right, Soto said. It is a right that has a scope as dened by the Supreme Court. Sotos town hall meeting proceeded his return to Capital Hill Monday, as members of the U.S. Congress and Senate returned from spring break session. Soto said at the meeting he plans to pursue the legislation outlined in his action plan during the current session.

Page 4 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, April 12, 2018 Perhaps Vladimir Putin was using his experience meddling in U.S. elections to meddle in his own. Putin recently won re-election with about 76 percent of the vote, not as much as the 99 percent Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein won and maybe not as impressive as the nearly unanimous vote by the Peoples Congress to allow Chinas Xi Jinping to eectively be president for as long as he wishes, but impressive nonetheless. Well, not really all that impressive since Putin eectively wiped out (or rubbed out) any serious opposition. And speaking of wiping out, how about his alleged (and here I use the word only in a legal sense) use of deadly WWII nerve gas in an attempt to extinguish two former spies who served as double agents? ey remain in critical condition in a London hospital. In a style familiar to those who remember the Cold War, Russian toadies blame everyone but themselves the UK, the U.S. and other foreigners. But they credit the Wests criticism of Russia for the high voter turnout. e UK Daily Mail, which oen reports U.S. stories before the American media get to them, tells of wrestlers, nuns and independent monitors caught on video stung ballot boxes and otherwise xing votes for Putin. A Putin spokesman told the Interfax news agency that Putin won an incredible victory and that the large percentage of votes that went to him speaks for itself. Given the corruption, it certainly does. e larger question for the West is what happens next? Will Putin feel emboldened to be even more aggressive than he has been against neighboring countries, perhaps invading another one with some sort of phony excuse to paper over his aggression? Will even more Putin enemies, including journalists who dare to print the truth about him and his tactics, wind up dead under suspicious circumstances? Will that nerve agent that nearly killed and may still kill the two former Russian spies, and which has been banned for decades by international law governing chemical weapons, start showing up in other places and become a weapon of choice for Russia? And then there is the ultimate question. What will and what can President Trump do about all this? During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump was solicitous of Putin, refusing to condemn him for his aggressive tactics in Ukraine and later as president reluctant to conclude that Russia interfered in the U.S. election. President Obama was similarly solicitous, almost obsequious, with Putins puppet, President Dmitry Medvedev. Obama told Medvedev in 2012 during one of those caught on open mic moments that he would have more flexibility to address Russias concerns about European missile defense after he won re-election, to which Medvedev replied, I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir. Must America and the West return to a Cold War mentality and prepare for a type of Soviet Union 2.0? Are we headed back to the doctrine of mutually assured destruction with growing numbers of ICBMs pointed at each other? In January, President Trump slapped sanctions on a list of Russian oligarchs, but refused to apply broader sanctions against the country. e pressure is on for him to go further. If he does, will it make a dierence, or will Putin continue his make Russia great again policies? Ronald Reagan believed in peace through strength and contributed to the downfall of the Soviet Union by successfully employing that policy. Does Trump have a similar policy when it comes to modern Russia? Does he have any policy? He had better because Putin has one and a corrupt election is only part of it.

Teaching a child solid money management habits early on in their life will likely have a very positive impact on how they handle things when it comes time to support themselves. Here are some ideas on how we can get children involved in some money management exercises: Invite em Into Your Decision-Making All words and no actions is a formula that rings hollow. Not only that, but its also much harder to eectively teach children about concepts that remain abstract. ey need something tangible to look atsomething like you! e idea is to give them a glimpse behind the curtain. They only see the show on stage, but you an reveal how you make it happen. This could mean sharing a simple version of your budget, explaining. how the money flows into your family coupled with an outline of where and how it goes out. Give em A Charity Budget Even if youre not a fan of allowances in the traditional sense, consider giving regular money to your child for charity. is may mean they actively give money to a local organization helping less privileged children or one thats involved in some other cause your child believes in. Making Saving A Requirement According to DoughMains 2012 survey, % of parents give their children allowance, but only 4% require them to deposit that money into a bank account. You may want to require saving by including it in the terms of an allowance or other ways your children receive money. It helps to have something specic in mind that the money is being saved for, such as an upcoming concert or the latest toy, or longer-term goals later on in life such as a car or college. Our children will miss out on a central part of nancial responsibility if we dont teach them about saving. Delayed gratication will be hard, but they will be able to tangibly understand that keeping some money aside can have big benets down the road.

Bondy Partner Overstreet, Miles, Cumbie & Finkenbinder P.A. LEGAL v THEInsidersTips & Advice From Local Professionals3 Problems With Online WillsYou can nd just about anything online these days and that include wills and estate planning documents. It can be very tempting to create your will online. Its a quick process, you can do it from the comfort of home, and it costs less than an attorney draed last will and testament. However, online wills are not the right choice for everyone and may be more expensive in the long run. Here are three of our concerns with online wills. 3 Considerations Before Completing An Online Will 1. Its a generic document. Online wills are generic forms that may not meet your needs. e rigid wording may make it impossible to properly manage your assets or have your last wishes fullled. ese generic forms are not a good option if you own a small business, or if you have a complicated family tree involving re-marriages, stepchildren, properties in multiple states, or if you think someone might contest your will. 2. Its easy to overlook important details. Since online wills are so generic, anyone who uses one runs the risk of missing important details specic to their own situation. Meeting face-toface with a wills and trusts attorney will ensure all of the relevant questions are asked and the details specic to your life are included in the will. 3. It may not be valid. Most jurisdictions have specic requirements regarding the language contained in wills and how they are to be executed. With 50 states, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories, it is critical that the will be valid in the jurisdiction in which it was executed. If the will is not valid your estate will be treated as if there is no will and property will be divided according to the intestate laws of your state rather than your will. e point of creating a will is to protect your loved ones and help manage your assets upon your death. While do-it-yourself wills may appear to oer you a way to accomplish this task on your own, this is denitely a buyer beware and a you get what you pay for type of situation. Online wills are generalized to meet the needs of the most people possible. at means they may not accomplish your specic objectives; they are not a suitable substitute for an estate plan.

Sports Editor A little bit of rain on Saturday could not put a damper on the 26th installment of the Kissimmee Klassic soball tournament. Henceforth to be called the Roger Jones Kissimmee Klassic in honor of its co-founder (editors note: see story below) it lived up to its billing as one of the states best prep gatherings last weekend. Defending Class 8A state champion Orange Park Oakleaf defended its Blue bracket championship Saturday with a 7-3 win over Bartow. The 16-team blue bracket contained many of Floridas highest-ranked teams, including Land OLakes, Winter Springs, Aucilla Christian, St. Thomas Aquinas, Tate, Eustis, Timber Creek and the hometown St. Cloud Bulldogs, who went 2-2 in the tournament to take 10th place. ey fell into the consolation bracket ursday with a 3-1 loss to Parkland Stoneman Douglas. ey took a 1-0 lead in the rst inning when Bri Rodriguez raced home from second on Evoni Rodriguezs fly ball to center, but couldnt nd key two-out hits aer falling behind 2-1 in the third. e Bulldogs (13-7) rallied Friday; pitcher Alyssa ODonnell struck out six in a 3-1 win over Tate, then came back in the aernoon and beat Timber Creek, 1-0. Pitcher Lindsey Burns made second baseman Amy MacNabs h-inning, two-out RBI single stand up. I was a little disappointed in that rst one, but Im proud of the girls for how they played against that tough of a bracket, St. Cloud Coach Ray Whobrey said. e girls played a very good game against Tate and played the best defense Ive probably ever seen them play against Timber Creek. Youll understand the girls were tired aer Saturday and four games in three days. We were really tested. Lake Region trounced Cooper City, 12-0, Saturday night to win the Gold bracket. Osceola (14-6) went 1-3 in Gold play, good for 12th place. The Kowgirls showcase game was an 11-0 victory Friday afternoon over Vero Beach Masters Academy. OHS banged out 12 hits, including a 3-for-3 day from Lauren Edwards and a 2-for2, three RBI effort from Maya Jusino, and pitcher Shelby Jones pitched a ve-inning one-hitter. From there Osceola found the going tough, losing Friday night to Montverde Academy, 6-5, aer the Eagles scored twice in the top of the seventh, and 12-0 to Eau Gallie on Saturday when OHS Coach George Coey emptied his bench. Catcher Maria Nunez and shortstop Audra Thompson each picked up three hits against Montverde. We put ourselves in the frying pan in this tournament like we always do, Coey said. But were only going to get better for it, and it puts us in the right spot going into the district tournament. I thought we played great against Montverde, I knew it would come down to whoever batted last. We got the work in we needed, so Im pleased with that. Both teams host their respective district tournaments and, if Osceola handles Haines City on Friday, both will be No. 1 seeds and favorites to reach the regional playos, like last year. St. Cloud has a couple of warmup games that will get its attention leading into districts: hosting Harmony on Friday and Orlando Boone on Tuesday, then traveling to East Ridge next ursday. Were ready for districts, Whobrey said. Class 8A is most dicult in the state for soball. Sports Editor A nod of lifetime appreciation for Roger Jones See Jones, Page 9. Oakleaf, Lake Region win bracket championships; St. Cloud 2-2 in Blue bracket, Osceola 1-3 in Gold in events 26th edition 2nd at Sports Editor An even dozen Osceola county weightliers trekked to Panama City Beach a place in a dierent time zone yet the same state for the Class 2A state meet Saturday, and they returned with some sore arms and knees, memories to last a lifetime, and some hardware. Led by Harmonys Brett McCarroll, who was the state runner-up in the 139-pound weight class in his second state meet appearance, liers made ve podium nishes, including three from Harmony. McCarroll benched 260 pounds and hoisted 255 in the clean-and-jerk, tops in 139, for a 515-pound total that trailed only the 575 pounds of Josh Hibbard of New Smyrna Beach. Cameron Scherrer at 129 pounds (225-200) and Garrett Breeding at 199 (330270) each placed sixth, and combined to give the Longhorns 7 points, good for a tie for 11th in the team standings. Harmony Coach Nick Lippert said Saturday wrapped up a stellar career for McCarroll which included OBC, district and regional titles, and three medals from the state meet. Brett has also set several school records along the way, and will be missed and we will be looking to our other state qualiers to set the tone and keep things rolling, he said. Juniors Scheerer, Breeding Joseph Derryberry all have many successes of their own and I look forward to seeing how they do next season. I cannot be more proud of our state qualiers as they carried our team all season. e future is bright. Poincianas Jacob Bazilme (119 pounds, 215-195) and Osceolas Dion Bergan (heavyweight, 380-270--650) nished fourth, and their 3 points put the teams tied for 23rd. Among the rest of the nishers: 119: Daniel Rodriguez, Osceola, 11th, total not available; 139: Chandler Urbano, St. Cloud, 10th, 250-205; 154: Bernie Velez, Osceola, 260, no clean and jerk; 169: Ricardo Hernandez, St. Cloud, 290, no clean and jerk; 219: Jakobe omas, Osceola, 10th, 340-2275; 238: Joseph Derryberry, Harmony, 11th, 310-295; Heavyweight: Jordan Redmond, Osceola, 11th, 380 270. Spruce Creek (26 points) ran away with its 27th state title in 2A over Navarre (14). Baker County (34) won the Class A team title. Brett has also set several school records along the way, and will be missed and we will be looking to our other state qualifiers to set the tone and keep things rolling. NICK LIPPERTRoger Jones is going to really dislike that Im writing this column. Its nothing personal at least Im pretty sure its not and I know it doesnt have anything negative to do with the annual Kissimmee Klassic softball tournament, the April ritual that has brought together the best softball diamond talent from around the state, and in some years the entire Southeast region. He loves it when people talk about the Klassic, created in 1993 to get female athletes exposure doing what they do best against the best competition that could be found. at tournament had three teams that played at the acker Avenue fields. Fast forward to last weekends event, which had 32 teams 30 of them ranked in the top 10 of their classications poll. It was played at the fivefield Osceola County Softball Complex, with announcers and scorers working each game, box scores and the Klassics building history at a professional website (www.kissimmeeklassic.com) and, for this year, coverage from USA Today. Following a ceremony held ursday evening, the opening night of the 26th annual tournament, henceforth the events name will be the Roger Jones Kissimmee Klassic, as announced by Osceola High soball coach and fellow Klassic co-organizer George Coey. at ceremony caught Jones, who is retiring from his duties as well, I cant really name something to do with the Klassic that Jones wouldnt do or help do completely o guard. (George) didnt have to do that, he said ursday, not wanting to take the spotlight away from the ladies playing the game on the four elds that surrounded him at that moment. I had no idea, he just asked me to come down to the eld. And thats why Rogers probably a little taken back by this story, and that ceremony. Hes never a person whos looked for recognition for the work hes done with the Klassic, and before that the Great Florida Shootout, which he helped grow from a non-descript four-team boys basketball tournament to, in its heyday, a 16-team showcase of some of the nations top hardwood talent and a staple of the Christmas season at the downtown Kissimmee Civic Center. Sure, Roger doesnt need the attention for what hes done for the Shootout, the Klassic, and the thousands of athletes whos careers, both athletic and academic the NEWS-GAZETTE PHOTO/MARTIN MADDOCKOsceola third baseman Kara Jones connects on a pitch Thursday against Riverview in the opening round of the Roger Jones Kissimmee Klassic at the Osceola County Softball Complex.

NEWS-GAZETTE PHOTO/MARTIN MADDOCKMatheus Machado (10) shown controlling the ball in a regional playoff game against Delray Beach Atlantic, was at the heart of the Celebration boys soccer team attack, helping lead the Storm to the Class 5A state semifinal game.Machado was Celebrations leader in story of title march, but its not over yet By Ken Jackson Sports Editor Celebrations run to the boys soccer state seminals this past season coincided with junior Matheus Machados move to the offensive center midfield position in the Storms attack. It may have been coincidence, but Coach Chad Boudreaux isnt questioning it, or wondering how, because when the playos begin what the rest of the football world calls the knockout stage theres no ties and the only consideration is how many. Machado, who goes by the nickname Matuck, made it possible for Celebration to score enough to win six playo games. e junior, who tallied 18 goals and 15 assists this year, tied for the club lead, thanks to his work quarterbacking the Storm oense, is this seasons Osceola NewsGazette Boys Soccer Player of the Year. Boudreaux moved Machado, a Brazilian native, from defensive midfielder to offensive center mid, where hed get to dictate the pace and direction of the attack. We scored many goals because everyone in our attack was dangerous, said Machado, who wrapped up his third varsity season this year. Machado was on the giving end of a lot of passes in an offense that excelled in distribution and ball movement the Storm had assists on 74 of its 87 goals this year (an average of over 3.75 per game), opening scoring opportunities for players like Inti Antunez, Luis Mora, Gabe Pinheiro, Mel Rodriguez, Eduardo Albuqurque, Humberto Faris and others. Sometimes an assist is better than a goal sometimes, Machado said. We worked very hard this year and developed a lot of chemistry. I know I had a lot of teammates and coaches helping me. Boudreaux said he gave Machado more free reign to use natural ability learned from playing the game since very little back in Brazil. He reads the field so well, thats something you cant teach, the coach said. You can coach a player, but you let a great center mid play. He has that It factor, he knows what to do to make the team successful. Next year Im looking for him to be a little more of a vocal leader. Machado, Boudreaux and the rest of the Storm were motivated by how the 2016-17 season ended, when the No. 1-seeded Storm fell in the district tournament quarterfinal to Gateway, 1-0. is year two teams met in the District 5A-9 seminal, and although Gateway again led early, Celebration avenged with a 4-2 victory. By the time they were done, the Storm pieced together a 16-3-4 record, Orange Belt Conference, District 5A-9 and Region 3 championship. Yes, there was a motto of Unnished business this year, Machado said. We were more prepared and we all wanted to win so badly. Even though we lost (in the 5A seminal game) our last game, it was a great season. Machado said hes working with his club team, the Florida Rush, to get bigger and stronger for next year as he also gets closer to signing a college scholarship. So whats the mantra going to be next year, when he, Mora and fullback Daniel Perez go into their senior seasons and joined by other top underclass talent like Oscar Newman and Gabe Pinheiro, climb the path again to the Class 5A state title game? Last season was fun, he said. But, were saying, e Story Is Not Over Yet. BOYS SOCCERPlayer of the YearMatheus Machado (CHS, Jr)All-county teamHarmony: Ignacio Graneros, Cody Huff, Carlos Jimenez.

Shootout attracted some of the top NCAA coaches over the years and the Klassic would do the same if it wasnt played during the college season who signed scholarships to play their sports at the top competition levels while letting that talent help pay for an academic degree that likely kickstarted some successful business careers. I always knew we could build the Klassic up like we did the Shootout, Jones said. The field here this year is as good as anything we had in the Shooutout in its heyday. In fact, Jones and Coey and their helpers tried going from two 16-team brackets to three and running 48 teams through four games over three days on ve elds. It worked for about three years. Boy, that was a mistake, he said with a chuckle. The reason for Jones retirement is bittersweet. Aer successfully ghting off a bout with leukemia in 2012, hes now stepping to the plate against another tough opponent, a rare form of skin cancer that surfaced in 2015. Its been hard on Jones, his wife Betty Ann, his six children, 14 grandchildren and couple of great-grandchildren, many of which played (or currently play, like granddaughter Kara) sports, like soball, for Osceola and Coey. Its also a hard thing for the Kowboy family. For many years Jones was a mainstay in the OHS soball PA booth, and he retired from his successful sporting goods company two years ago. Thursdays ceremony took place about an hour before the Kowgirls were scheduled to take the eld for their 2018 Klassic opener. e game didnt go real well for Coey and the team. Roger holds a special place in our hearts, so thats to be expected, Coffey said. Well take him for as long as weve got him. If it doesnt go well well, well remember him at his best. Jones said he started chemo treatments Monday for the skin cancer. If its like digging in against a tough pitcher, heres hoping he settles in and fouls o a bunch of pitches and, if he cant get a good swing in, can draw a walk. at way, while standing on rst base, he can talk about how great all the other players are doing on all the other elds.JONESContinued from Page 7Rain, homers mark Fire Frogs home opener By Ken Jackson Sports Editor e Florida Fire Frogs opening weekend at Osceola County Stadium had a little bit of everything the pomp and circumstance of Opening Day, a little rain, some home runs, a ninthinning rally, a pair of onerun games and the debut of a new minor league rule. Florida dropped the two games of the weekend series, 4-3 on Saturday in six innings due to rain, and 2-1 on Sunday in 10 innings, and are 1-4 aer ve games of the Florida State League season. e Fire Frogs are on a week-long road road trip in Fort Myers and Palm Beach before returning home on Tuesday to begin a home stand against the St. Lucie Mets and Lakeland Flying Tigers. Opening Day on Saturday reminded a lot of folks of the inaugural 2017 season the start was delayed almost two hours by a passing rainstorm that moved in as the game was about to start, and the game was shortened to six innings by a thunderstorm that evening. Florida was rained out 17 times last year. Catcher Brett Cumberland tried to make it worth the wait for the 2,764 fans attending by hitting a pair of home runs, and second baseman Alejandro Salazar (2-for-2 on the day) had an RBI single in the fourth, but it wasnt enough as Daytona used three home runs to plate four runs in the h for the winning margin. On Sunday, Florida got a ninth-inning rally after Daytona starter Wennington Romero retired the first 20 Fire Frogs batters, but couldnt get another in the 10th. Trailing 1-0, Cristian Pache lined a 1-0 pitch into the right-field corner for an RBI triple that scored Marcus Mooney, who doubled to lead off the inning. Starter Joey Wentz tossed four innings allowing three hits, and the bullpen kept the Fire Frogs in the game going a combined six innings allowing just one hit. In the top half of the 10th, Daytona used the new minor league extra-inning baserunner rule the player who makes the nal out of the ninth is placed on second based to begin the 10th to their advantage, and Florida failed to score. Florida lost 6-4 to the Fort Myers Miracle in a backand-forth aair on Monday; Cumberland swatted his third homer of the year, rst baseman Braxton Davidson added his rst home run, and pitcher Ian Anderson struck out seven in 3 2/3 innings in his Fire Frogs debut. Through five games, Cumberland was hitting .375 with four RBI and had scored half of the Fire Frogs 12 runs. Clements headlines list of winners at RNCFRMason Clements claimed the bareback riding championship Sunday at the RAM National Circuit Finals at the Silver Spurs Arena with an 86-point ride on Hi Lo ProRodeos Wilson Sanchez in the finals. Clements tied with Tim OConnell, but Clements got the win by having the higher score in the seminals, an 85-point ride on Raer G Rodeos Assault. Clements and OConnell each earned $6,634 for the nals. Clements took home a total of $19,237 for the rodeo. Like all the winners from the NCFR, Clements received a $20,000 voucher toward a new RAM Truck. In other events, Parker Breding from Montana got on three bulls in one day on his way to winning his third NCFR bull riding title, cashing in for $29,567. Logan Olson and Matt Kasner had back-to-back 5.4 second times in the seminal and nal to win the team roping competition and took home $20,090, tops among team ropers. Tuf Coopers 7-second performance in the tie-down roping finals landed the Texas cowboy his rst NCFR buckle and earned $18,005. Steer wrestler Chason Floyd won the NCFR buckle in 4.2 seconds, earning $7,581 for the win, and setting him up to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo for the second straight year. He and Bridger Chambers each finished with a steer wrestling-best $17,058. Isaac Diaz took home the saddle bronc riding title after an 86-point ride on Dakota Rodeos Bartender. Diaz took home $14,594 from the rodeo, while Wade Sundell took home the most money among saddle bronc riders with $18,669. Raer G Rodeos Assault was named the top bareback riding horse of the NCFR. Lancaster and Jones Pro Rodeos El Patron was named top bull of the NCFR, while Silver Spurs Rodeos Best Hope was the saddle bronc riding top horse.

Page 10 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, April 12, 2018 OSCEOLA COUNTY HISTORY Translations of the name Monts De Oca vary as do stories regarding the origin of the family. Ancestry.com tells us it is Topographic name from a range of mountains forming the watershed between the rivers Ebro and Duero in northern Spain, named with the plural of monte mountain and oca goose. The Urban Dictionary defines it as large hills with an oak forest on top or large hills with geese on top. One version of the origin of the family, submitted by Billy and Diana Buckner, was found in the Osceola County Historical Society files Don Juan Montes De Oca a Spanish gentleman of high family came to America from San Sebastian, Spain, with two of his brothers. e young noblemen were sent by the King of Spain to explore and survey Florida. When one of the brothers died very suddenly of a tropical disease, the other le immediately for Spain. Juan remained in Florida and thus the family history began. Juan was highly educated. His occupation listed as mariner on early census documents may explain his uency in the English and Seminole languages. In the March 21, 1857 edition of the Florida Peninsular newspaper, Captain John Montes De Oca was owner of the schooner Experiment. Moving to Tampa in its early days, he met and married a young Seminole Indian while working as a translator of Spanish and Seminole for the soldiers at Ft. Brooke in the 1830s. She died at an early age supposedly at the hands of other Indians in retaliation for some wrong they had suered. Family researchers dier as to how many children Juan and his Indian wife had some say only a daughter, Victoria, while others say as many as seven. Juan then married Mary (born 1825, died December 4, 1858). Mary is believed to be the mother of all the children except Victoria. After Mary died, Victoria was sent to live with Dr. & Mrs. Robert Jackson at Ft. Brooke while two of Juans sons, Manuel and John Jr. went to William and Annie Willingham, who later moved to the Kissimmee area. e Willinghams dropped the e from Montes, thinking it was too Spanish sounding for the children to be accepted. The second version found on the website Pioneer Families of the Kissimmee River Valley by Kyle S. Van Landingham merely states that Juan Montes de Oca, born in 1809 in Cuba, settled at Tampa, married a Seminole Indian and they had Victoria. The story continues with the son John Jr. homesteading on Kissimmee Island at Clay and Grape Hammocks, later moving to Midland, between Ft. Meade and Frostproof in Polk County, Florida. John and his wife, Wealthy Ann Lewis had fourteen children; a son, William married Maggie Bowen. William owned a citrus nursery and cattle herd in Osceola County, Florida. When William registered for the dra in 1918, he was City Marshall for St. Cloud. e Montes De Ocas married into other Florida families Godwin, Bass, Mizell and McClelland; their descendants continuing to live in Osceola and neighboring counties. Rose Hill Cemetery in Kissimmee is the resting place of several in the Montes/Monts De Oca family, including Welthan, wife of John Jr. Sources: OCHS family les; Ancestry. com; Urban Dictionary; Find A Grave; http://www.lamartin.com/history/ pioneer_families_kissimmee_river_ valley.htm e photos of William and family were shared with OCHS in 2009 by Ileana Monts de Oca and believed to be the property of William Mark Monts de Oca.

Thursday, April 12, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 11 041218.TNG By Jennifer DiDomenico A&E Editor Get ready for a night filled with magic, music and merch. Presented by The Lost Bros, The Kingdom Classic is taking over 3NINE at Rosen Plaza for an unforgettable night on Saturday, April 28, beginning at 7 p.m. Brothers and business partners Cody and Colton Tapoler founded The Lost Bros theme-park inspired small shop in May 2016. We grew up loving movies, and became [theme park] passholders as adults, said Cody, creative director for e Lost Bros. We spent a ton of time at the parks together and desperately wanted merch that was more in line with our personal style. ats really the birth of e Lost Bros... Trendier merch that could be worn in or out of the parks, with more attention on being fashion forward than we were seeing at the time. e shop began with just a handful of designs Life is the Bubbles tees, the Lost Boys jerseys and the Mermaids jerseys all of which are still available in the brothers online store. However, the small shop has since expanded to several designs for unisex shirts, hats, socks, pins and more. Some of the brothers most popular items were inspired by e Haunted Mansion attraction, Netixs Stranger ings show, Disneys Toy Story lms and even some breakfast foods. Couples tees and BFF tees have made their way into the collection, too like the favored Princes and Princesses set. And let me tell you rsthand: e Lost Bros merchandise has spread like wildre. Its nearly impossible to visit an Orlando theme park without seeing one of their unique shirts. So with all of this talk about clothing and merchandise, how did music come into play? I grew up in music, said Cody. I started touring when I was 17, working every job on the road until I nally put myself on the front line with my music career. I ended two years of releasing music and touring as Cody T to start e Lost Bros with my brother. e brothers then began to incorporate music into their business. ey recorded an EP of covers of classic Disney songs, and hosted their rst live event, Kingdomchella, last year. Kingdomchella, and our whole musical career as The Lost Bros, really started as a way for me to bring my two worlds together, said Cody. What started as a very simple EP release party, aer a few brainstorming sessions, turned into a fully concepted and themed live event. e Kingdom Classic is all grown up in comparison to Kingdomchella. Were in a real, huge and beautiful event space, said Cody. We started with ourselves and, our dear friends, Aloha Ears Design, at the last event. Guests will once again be able to enjoy live musical performances and shop designs by e Lost Bros, but also shop the designs of 16 of the other top theme-park inspired small shops in Central Florida. Small shops serve an important role in the community surrounding amusement parks, and fashion in general, said Colton, brand manager for e Lost Bros. ey have all identied niches that were going underrepresented or undeserved and they are all working to ll those gaps. ese are small businesses that are hoping to oer the public items that arent already available, and I think that on its own is a great reason to support them. In addition to browsing merchandise and singing along to covers of classic Disney hits, guests can enjoy some bites and sips from a special, one-night menu. e Lost Bros will present a food and cocktail menu, custom made for the event based off of their very own Restaurant Row a collection of madeup restaurants that they have incorporated into their clothing brand. Special menu items include a frozen drink from Olafs Snow Cone Shack, donuts from Glazed by the Belle and egg rolls from Mushus Chinese Takeout. e Kingdom Classic welcomes guests 21 and older with a valid form of ID.

See Quick Lane service advisor for details. Expires: 4/30/18.Fast Quick Lane ServiceQuick Lane Hours:at Tropical Ford (BPT) Most of us who are aging hope to live comfortably and selfsufficiently at home well into our golden years. And, of course, we wish the same for our parents. The good news is advancements in healthcare and other technology are increasingly allowing aging Americans to live longer at home. e bad news is many are unable to continue to do so once they take a serious fall at home, injuring their hips, heads or other body parts. Thats an all-toocommon problem: One in four Americans age 65 and older fall each year, and falling once doubles their chances of falling again, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Falls also are the number one cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among older adults. We treat many older patients who lived happily and productively at home until they tripped and broke a hip, notes orthopaedic trauma surgeon and American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) spokesperson Dr. Lisa Cannada. A broken hip or other fall-related injuries make it difficult for people to live at home again without assistance of some kind and loss of independence. With a little foresight and planning, many of these injuries could be prevented. Several steps can be taken to prevent debilitating falls from ever taking place. Consider how the following tips may help you or your loved ones hold on to the comforts of home for a longer period of time: Recognize your risk. A number of health issues can make you or your parents more prone to falling, ranging from arthritis to neurological conditions to vision or hearing loss. Various medications, the use of alcohol or simple dehydration may also affect your ability to safely navigate your surroundings. But the more youre aware of such possible hindrances, the more you can plan for them. Optimize your health. Take responsibility for staying as healthy and t as possible by remaining active, drinking enough water, limiting alcohol, avoiding smoking and eating a healthy diet with plenty of calcium and vitamin D. Annual physicals, eye exams and bone density tests are recommended. Make exercise a priority, and choose something that you enjoy to maintain your bone health and coordination. Fall-proof your home. Walk through your home and that of your parents to identify and fix possible hindrances such as slippery surfaces, inadequate lighting, cluttered pathways, unsecured rugs, electric cords, loose ooring, etc. Consider installing grab bars in the shower, securing loose rugs with slip-resistant backings and installing bright motion-detector lights. You also might move clothes, kitchenware and other everyday gear within easier reach. The AAOS and Orthopaedic Trauma Association oer additional tips in this Falls Awareness and Prevention Guide. Wear the right shoes. Limit footwear to wellfitting, low-heeled shoes or slippers with rubber or other non-skid soles. Also watch for untied shoelaces. Maintain an action plan. If you live alone, have someone check on you daily. If you do fall, you may avoid further injury by using your arms to protect your head instead of trying to break your fall. If possible, fall on your side or buttocks and roll slightly. If you cant get up after bracing yourself on a wall or furniture, call a friend, relative or 911 for help. Finally, consider wearing a medical alert device 24-7; you never know where and when youll need emergency help, and your cell phone may not always be available. Many aging Americans are able to enjoy long, productive lives in their own homes instead of turning to other accommodations. Increase your chances of making that happen for you and your parents by taking steps to plan for and avoid an injury-producing fall.

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.

And this particular version rewards you with bacon and melted cheese. I feel like I can do a lot of things if there is bacon and melted cheese involved. Here's the scoop: You lay out a thinly sliced chicken cutlet. You layer some things on top. You roll it up. You wrap it with a piece of ba con. You skewer it with a toothpick. You cook it. Then you have Bacon, Sage and Provolone Chicken Rolls. The sauce is so easy it shouldn't even be called a sauce it's just the addition of garlic, Marsala wine and broth to the pan you cooked the chicken in. Marsala is a fortied wine, usually with a bit of sweetness, and an open bottle can last for months. Thinly sliced chicken breast cut lets are readily available, but if they aren't at your market, just place regular chicken breasts (4 breasts of 4 or 5 ounces each will do) be tween two pieces of wax or parch ment paper and gently pound them with a meat mallet (if you have one) or a rolling pin or a bottle of wine, until they are uniformly thin, about ?-inch-thick all over. They will be quite large at this point, so cut them in half before proceeding. That will give you eight pieces. Nubby little noodles like tubetti are nice with this. Look at you, all la-di-da with your beautiful rolled chicken breasts.BACON, SAGE AND PROVOLONE CHICKEN ROLLS WITH MARSALA SAUCEServes 4 Start to nish: 45 minutes 8 (about 1 pounds) thinly sliced chicken cutlets Kosher or coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 4 slices provolone cheese, halved 8 fresh sage leaves 8 slices uncooked bacon 1 teaspoon garlic, minced 1/2 cup Marsala wine 1/2 cup chicken broth, prefer ably low-sodium Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Create a large clean workspace it's easier to roll up all of the chicken breasts at the same time, assembly-line fashion; you may want to line the counter space with wax or parchment paper (or use a huge cutting board). Lay the chicken breasts on the work space and season them lightly with salt and pepper. Place a piece of provolone on each cut let (trim it so it doesn't extend over the edges of the chicken), and a sage leaf if desired. Roll up each breast, and then wrap a slice of bacon around the middle, trimming the bacon so that the ends just overlap to seal the rolls (extra bits can be crisped on their own and eaten). Skewer each roll with a toothpick to keep it closed. Heat a large, ovenproof skil let over medium-high heat. Add the bacon-wrapped chicken and brown on all sides, turning the rolls with tongs so they hold their shape, about 8 minutes in all. Transfer the skillet to the pre heated oven and bake until the rolls are cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. A little cheese will probably melt out; that's OK. Transfer the chicken to a serving dish, remove the toothpicks, and keep warm while preparing the sauce. There should be just a couple of teaspoons of fat left in the skil let; pour off any more than that. (The skillet will be very hot, including the handle. Remember to use pot holders while prepar ing the sauce.) Place the hot pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and stir for a few seconds until it starts to color, then immediately add the Marsala and stir to scrape up any bits from the bottom of the pan to avor the sauce. Add the broth, allow the sauce to come to a simmer, and simmer until the mixture is slightly reduced, about 3 minutes.

Radishes carry in their lit tle bodies a tremendous vari ety of vitamins and minerals, so they're a smart addition to our ve-a-day veggie eating, but the spicy avor can keep many home cooks away. In France, I learned to love radishes as common cocktail hour snack (or "aperitif"), eaten raw, smeared with a small glob of butter and a dash of salt. If that sounds a little crazy, I dare you to try it and tell me that the French are not the wisest radisheating culture out there. Of course, falling in love with a veggie only when topped with creamy fatty butter isn't exactly a recipe for healthy eating, but it did get radishes on my radar, which led me to: roasting them. If you haven't roasted radishes before, you are in for a surprise. The sharp avor mellows into a sweet earthiness that is completely family-friendly. In fact, my four girls have love roasted radishes since they were tod dlers, owing to the gorgeous shade of pink they turn in the oven. Radishes are delicious simply tossed in a little olive oil and salt and pepper, and then roasted until tender in a hot oven about 20 min utes at 400 F. Or, add some minced garlic and dried herbs before cooking and then a squeeze of lemon before eat ing. Today's recipe tops plain roasted radishes with a quick green goddess dressing made from Greek yogurt, lemon juice, dill and parsley. Drizzle the dressing over hot rad ishes and serve as a side dish, or let the radishes cool to use as nger food to dip in the gorgeous herbaceous sauce.ROASTED RADISHES WITH GREEN GODDESS DRESSINGServings: 6 Start to nish: 30 minutes 1 pound radishes, about 15, cut in half, lengthwise 2 teaspoons olive oil 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper Green Goddess Dressing: 1/2 cup low fat plain Greek yogurt 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon olive oil 1/4 cup chopped green on ion 1/4 teaspoon minced fresh garlic (about 1/2 a clove) 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh parsley 1 tablespoon fresh dill (or 1 teaspoon dried) 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt Preheat the oven to 400 F. Place the halved radishes, olive oil and salt and pepper in a small bowl and stir to coat. Pour the radishes onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast until tender, about 20 minutes (no need to ip). Meanwhile, place all the dressing ingredients into a blender and blend just until mixed, but a few green ecks remain, about 20 seconds. (The recipe makes extra dressing.) Serve the radishes warm or room temperature with about half of the sauce either drizzled on top, or served in a small bowl as a dip.

AroundOsceola.com CITIZEN TRIBUNE FoodEEE-2 Wednesday, April 11, 2018 BY LISA RATH Associated PressTHETFORD, Vt. (AP) Was your tomato grown in dirt or water? Organic shoppers might notice additional labels this summer that will give them the answer and tell them whether their choices align with what a rebellious group of farmers and scientists deem the true spirit of the organic movement. About 15 farmers and scientists from around the country met in Vermont late last month to create the standards for an additional or ganic certication program, which they plan to roll out nationally to between 20 to 60 farms as a pilot this summer. Under the current U.S. Depart ment of Agriculture program, the organic label means that your to mato has been produced without synthetic substances with some exceptions and without certain methods, like genetic engineering. The additional label, which does not yet have a name or wording, would indicate that a tomato, for example, has been grown in soil, and that meat and dairy products came from farms that pasture their animals. An inspector would certify that the farm has complied with the new standards, and the farms not dis tributors would add the label. The move comes ve months after the National Organic Stan dard Board, which advises the U.S. Department of Agriculture, voted against a proposal to exclude from the USDA's organic certication program hydroponics raising plants with water but no soil and aquaponics, in which plants and aquatic animals, such as sh, are grown within one system. "I think that a lot of farmers, es pecially young farmers, feel that the organic label no longer describes the way they farm, and we're trying to recapture that," said Linley Dix on, a vegetable farmer in Durango, Colorado, and senior scientist for Cornucopia Institute, who is also on the standards board of the Real Organic Project. The group creating the new label, which calls itself the Real Organic Project, said it has not abandoned the National Organic Program, which is the federal standard, and is not attacking organic farmers. "Some of the cornerstones of what organic means are being taken away, and we're concerned about how creaky that makes the whole thing," said Dave Chapman, a member of the executive and stan dards board of the Real Organic Project and owner of an organic to mato farm in Thetford. He believes the cornerstone of being organic is growing in soil and improving its fertility. To Dixon, "organic" means a very diversied operation, rotat ing animals and crops and planting cover crops to control erosion, in crease organic matter in the soil and manage weeds, among other things. The new label would exclude from certication hydroponic farm ing and large livestock farms that don't pasture their animals, known as contained animal feeding operations or CAFOs. The hydroponic industry argues another label would mislead and confuse consumers and is a way for the traditional organic farmers to try to get a competitive edge. "It's a competition because eld farmers can't produce the volume that hydroponics can," said Dan Lubkeman, president of the Hydro ponic Society of America. While shopping at Hunger Moun tain food cooperative in Montpelier, Jessica Manchester, of Worcester, agreed labeling is getting confusing for the average consumer but in the long run thinks it's good to know where food comes from. She said she prefers produce grown in soil. "I'm just in favor of plants grow ing in their natural way and being in connection with the microbes in the soil and the interactions those microbes have with the plant roots," Manchester said. But fellow shopper Laurie Griggs, of Calais, said she doesn't buy totally organic and doesn't mind if vegetables or berries are raised hydroponically. "I just think we need new ways to grow things," she said. "We've got a lot of people and farming's re ally hard on the land, and if we can nd ways to lighten our impact on the land and grow healthy food for people, I have no problem with it." The farmers involved want a more transparent label and will not see an economic benet at rst, Chapman said. The program is now being funded by contributions. Farmers would pay a fee to be certi ed, but he doubts that would cover the cost of the program. "I hope the day will come where there will be an economic benet because I know that there are mil lions of people in the country who actually do care about whether food is grown in the soil and whether the animals have access to the pasture," he said.War of organics? Rebel farmers create new food labelBY MELISSA D'ARABIAN Associated PressMany eggplant recipes start with slicing or dic ing and sauteing in oil. But this approach can add a lot of unnecessary fat to your dish, as porous egg plant esh absorbs oil like a sponge as it cooks, lead ing most of us to add more fat than we realize. Instead, consider roasting the egg plant whole. Simply pop the entire eggplant in a hot oven prick a few holes for steam to escape and lightly spray or rub with the tiniest bit of olive oil to keep the skin moist and in 20-45 minutes (depending on size), your eggplant will be cooked and ready to join almost any recipe. Besides being a healthier cooking method than frying, roasting is easier, almost completely handsoff. You can even roast the eggplant a day in advance to make weeknight meals even faster. Roast just until tender, cut up into cubes and make a stir fry, or cut roasted eggplant into large chunks and cover in mari nara sauce and sprinkle of cheese and bake for a low-oil version of eggplant parm. Or roast until completely soft, and scoop out the esh and mix with garlic, smoked paprika, and Greek yogurt for a delicious dip. Either way, you'll get all the benets of eggplant, with its high ber, low-sugar count, and wide variety of vitamins and minerals, without adding unnecessary fat. Save the fat, I say, for tasty ingredients like a modest amount of cheese. Today's recipe, Eggplant and Chicken Marinara, is a one-dish-wonder, where you have veggie, complex carbohydrates, and chicken all in one gorgeous dish that is simple enough for family meals, but pretty enough for company. Leftover cooked brown rice and chicken add heft to the super-low-calorie eggplant (under 30 calories a cup), but note you can make this meatless simply by leaving out the chicken. The result is somewhere between an eggplantchicken parm and an egg plant gratinee. But no matter what you decide to call it, enjoy knowing your family is loading up on veggies as they dig in. Using baby eggplant or Japanese eggplant means the skin is soft enough to eat, which will only add to the nutrient prole.EGGPLANT AND CHICKEN MARINARAServings: 6 Start to nish: 1 hour, 15 minutes 4 small eggplants ("baby" or "Japanese" egg plant at the grocery store) 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided 1 medium yellow onion, diced (about 1 1/2 cups) 5 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs 1/4 cup dry white wine 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice 2 cups cubed cooked chicken breast 2 cups prepared marinara sauce (no sugar added) 3/4 cup shredded Italian cheese (half mozzarella; half parmesan), divided 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper Fresh basil for garnish (optional) Preheat the oven to 400 F. Rub 1 teaspoon of the olive oil over all the egg plants, prick once or twice each with a fork, and roast them on a baking sheet un til soft, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool 15-30 min utes. Once cool enough to handle, slice the eggplants in half lengthwise, and scoop out the esh. Select the 6 prettiest eggplant skin halves for stufng and set aside. Roughly chop the eggplant esh into cubes (don't worry if it's "pulpy" from roasting and doesn't hold a cube shape.) In a large saute pan, cook the diced onion, salt and pepper in the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil over medium heat until soft, about 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the eggplant esh, garlic and dried herbs and cook another 3 minutes. Add the wine and stir, allowing most to evap orate over a minute or two, and then remove from heat. Stir in the cooked rice, the chicken, and 1/4 cup of the cheese. Taste the lling for seasoning and adjust if needed. Gently spoon the lling into the reserved 6 eggplant skin halves. Pour the marinara sauce into the large saucepan (wipe out any remaining lling rst, if needed). Place the lled eggplant skins gently on top of the sauce and top with remaining shredded cheese. Place the saucepan in the oven and bake until sauce and lling are hot and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Serve with fresh basil, if desired.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told a House oversight panel Wednesday that he believes it is "inevitable" there will be regula tion of the social media in dustry and also disclosed to lawmakers that his own data was included in the person al information sold to mali cious third parties. "The internet is growing in importance around the world in people's lives and I think that it is inevitable that there will need to be some regulation," Zuckerberg said during testimony be fore the House Energy and Commerce Committee. "So my position is not that there should be no regulation but I also think that you have to be careful about regulation you put in place." Larger, more dominant companies like Facebook have the resources to com ply with government regu lation, he said, but "that might be more difcult for a smaller startup to comply with." Lawmakers in both par ties have oated possible regulation of Facebook and other tech companies amid privacy scandals and Rus sian intervention on the platform. It's not clear what that regulation would look like and Zuckerberg didn't offer any specics. Zuckerberg was answer ing a question from Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., when he informed lawmak ers about his personal data, a reference to the Cambridge Analytica scandal that has rocked his company over the past several weeks. His remarks came as he opened the second day of a congressional inquisition in the wake of the worst privacy debacle in his com pany's history. A day earlier Zuckerberg batted away of ten-aggressive questioning from members of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees who accused him of failing to protect the personal information of millions of Americans from Russians intent on upsetting the U.S. election. During roughly ve hours of Senate questioning on Tuesday, Zuckerberg apologized several times for Facebook failures, dis closed that his company was "working with" special counsel Robert Mueller in the federal probe of Russian election interference and said it was working hard to change its own operations after the harvesting of users' private data by a data-min ing company afliated with Donald Trump's campaign. Seemingly unimpressed, Republican Sen. John Thune of South Dakota said Zuckerberg's company had a 14-year history of apolo gizing for "ill-advised decisions" related to user priva cy. "How is today's apology different?" Thune asked. "We have made a lot of mistakes in running the company," Zuckerberg conceded, and Facebook must work harder at ensuring the tools it creates are used in "good and healthy" ways. The controversy has brought a ood of bad pub licity and sent the compa ny's stock value plunging, but Zuckerberg seemed to achieve a measure of suc cess in countering that: Facebook shares surged 4.5 percent for the day, the big gest gain in two years. The stakes are high for both Zuckerberg and his company. Facebook has been reeling from its worstever privacy failure follow ing revelations last month that the political data-min ing rm Cambridge Ana lytica, which was afliated with Trump's 2016 cam paign, improperly scooped up data on about 87 million users. Zuckerberg has been on an apology tour for most of the past two weeks, culminating in his congressio nal appearances this week. Although shaky at times, Zuckerberg seemed to gain condence as the Senate hearing progressed. An iconic gure as a billionaire entrepreneur who changed the way people around the world relate to each other, he made a point of repeat edly referring back to the Harvard dorm room where he said Facebook was brought to life. As for the federal Rus sia probe that has occupied much of Washington's at tention for months, he said he had not been interviewed by special counsel Muel ler's team, but "I know we're working with them." He of fered no details, citing a concern about condentiality rules of the investigation. Earlier this year Mueller charged 13 Russian individuals and three Russian companies in a plot to inter fere in the 2016 presidential election through a social media propaganda effort that included online ad pur chases using U.S. aliases and politicking on U.S. soil. A number of the Russian ads were on Facebook. Much of the effort was aimed at denigrating Democrat Hillary Clinton and thereby helping Republican Trump, or simply encour aging divisiveness and un dercutting faith in the U.S. system. Zuckerberg said Facebook had been led to believe Cambridge Analytica had deleted the user data it had harvested and that had been "clearly a mistake." He said Facebook had considered the data collection "a closed case" and had not alerted the Federal Trade Commission. He assured senators the company would handle the situation differently today. In the hearings, Zucker berg is trying to both restore public trust in his company and stave off federal regulations that some lawmakers have oated. Democrat Bill Nelson of Florida said on Tuesday that he believes Zuckerberg was taking the congressional hearings seriously "because he knows there is going to be a hard look at regula tion." Republicans have yet to get behind any legislation, but that could change. Sen. Lindsey Graham, RS.C., asked Zuckerberg if he would be willing to work with lawmakers to examine what "regulations you think are necessary in your indus try." Absolutely, Zucker berg responded. At both the House and Senate hearings, Zucker berg said: "We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake. It was my mistake, and I'm sorry. I started Facebook, I run it, and I'm responsible for what happens here." He outlined steps the company has taken to re strict outsiders' access to people's personal information. He also said the com pany is investigating every app that had access to a large amount of information before the company moved to prevent such access in 2014 actions that came too late in the Cambridge Analytica case. CITIZEN TRIBUNEPoliticsWednesday, April 11, 2018 EEE-3 APFacebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg arrives to testify before a joint hearing of the Commerce and Judiciary Committees on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, April 10, 2018, about the use of Facebook data to target American voters in the 2016 election. Zuckerberg: regulation of social media firms is 'inevitable' Facebook puts ads on pages illegally selling animal partsWASHINGTON (AP) Facebook is displaying advertisements for wellknown American corporations along with content from group pages oper ated by overseas wildlife trafckers illegally selling the body parts of threat ened animals, including elephant ivory, rhino horn and tiger teeth. In a secret complaint led with the Securities and Exchange Commission, wildlife preservation advocates allege that Face book's failure to stop illicit traders using its service for illegal activity violates the social network's re sponsibilities as a publicly traded company. In a statement Tuesday, Facebook said its com munity standards forbid the sale of wildlife, en dangered species or their parts. The company said it removes groups engaging in illegal conduct when it's identied. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testied Tuesday on Capitol Hill. Asked about wildlife trafcking and other illegal activity happening on Facebook, he said the company could do a better job. By the end of the year, Facebook plans to have more than 20,000 people monitoring the site for in appropriate content. "Over time, we're going to shift increasingly to a method where more of this content is agged upfront by AI (articial intelligence) tools we develop," Zuckerberg said. The complaint, a copy of which was provided to The Associated Press, was initially led in August on behalf of an undercover in formant represented by the National Whistleblower Center, a non-prot legal advocacy group. The iden tity of the informant, who recorded video of face-toface meetings with wild life trafckers set up over Facebook, has been kept condential out of safety concerns. The SEC declined to comment Monday on whether the whistleblower complaint triggered an investigation of the com pany. "Facebook is not an in nocent bystander to these crimes," said Stephen Kohn, executive director of the National Whistle blower Center. "Facebook sold advertisements on the very pages the illegal ivory was being marketed." Facebook said Tuesday that it stopped displaying paid advertisements inside group pages last year. However, the wild life advocates provided screenshots showing what appear to be corporate ads showing up on individual news feeds along with il licit posts hawking jewelry carved from elephant ivory if the individual has joined the private groups. "Our community standards do not allow for poaching, the sale of wild life, endangered species or their parts, and we imme diately remove this material as soon as we are aware. We have many systems in place to prevent the sale of illegal goods, and do not allow ads around the sale of endangered animals," Facebook said in a state ment. "We are saddened to hear these reports and are investigating this issue." Facebook is one of 20 technology companies that last month joined the Global Coalition to End Wildlife Trafcking Online, which was organized by Google and the World Wildlife Fund. Weeks af ter the March 7 announce ment, an AP reporter was able to see scores of inter nationally banned wildlife products for sale in pub lic and private Facebook groups, most based in Southeast Asia. Among the items available were belts made from what appeared to be the fur of Bengal tigers, a crit ically endangered species with only about 2,500 still living in the wild. Also ad vertised were horns from black rhinos, a species heavily targeted by poach ers with little more than 5,000 still roaming Africa. Negotiations over price and delivery are often initiated by Facebook Messenger. Instagram and WhatsApp, two social me dia platforms also owned by Facebook, are also sometimes used by trafckers. The allegations tying Facebook to the illegal trafcking of wildlife are surfacing while the com pany is already scrambling to recover from a privacy scandal that has wiped out $79 billion in shareholder wealth during the past three weeks. The crisis stems from revelations that Cambridge Analytica, a datamining rm connected to President Donald Trump's successful 2016 campaign, had exploited weaknesses in Facebook's privacy con trols to collect personal information about 87 million people without their consent. The SEC complaint may trigger other lines of inquiry about how much of Facebook's annual revenue of $41 billion has been generated by ads running on pages featuring illegal activity, such as the sale of elephant ivory and tiger teeth. Facebook hasn't disclosed that some of its rev enue may be tied to illegal trafcking in wildlife in regulatory lings that are supposed to outline vari ous risks and other threats that could crimp its prots or stock price. Trafcking investigators say they have seen no drop off in the illegal products offered for sale on Face book after prior public pledges by the company to crack down. They are call ing on federal security reg ulators to force Facebook to immediately freeze ac counts being used by ille gal trafckers and cooper ate with international law enforcement to identify the individuals involved for prosecution. "The amount of ivory being traded on Facebook is horrifying," said Gretchen Peters, executive director of the Center on Illicit Networks and Trans national Organized Crime, which has analyzed on line groups where wildlife goods are being marketed. "I have looked at thou sands of posts containing ivory, and I am convinced that Facebook is literally facilitating the extinction of the elephant species."

(AP) The Kirtland's warbler, a colorful songbird that was near ly wiped out by habitat loss and a wily rival, has bounced back and is ready for removal from the endangered species list, fed eral ofcials said Wednes day. The U.S. Fish and Wild life Service proposed dropping legal protections for the warbler but acknowledged efforts will be needed indenitely to preserve jack pine stands where the birds spend summers and raise their young. They nest primar ily in Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula, although their range has widened to the Upper Peninsula, Wisconsin and Ontario as their numbers have risen. They migrate to the Bahamas for winter. Another requirement will be continued vigi lance against brown-headed cowbirds, which invade warblers' nests and displace their babies. "Kirtland's warblers were once on the brink of extinction and one of America's rarest birds, but today they represent the power of partnership to recover imperiled wildlife," said Tom Melius, the Fish and Wildlife Service's Midwest regional director. The agency will accept public comments on its proposal until July 11 and will have until April 2019 to make a nal decision. A victim of its own pecu liar habitat requirements, the warbler which has steel-gray back and tail feathers and a yellow belly was among the rst animals named to the endan gered list, getting added in 1967. The population was estimated at 167 pairs in 1974, based on a census of singing males. It hit the same low point in 1987. Females cannot be counted because they do not sing, but biologists as sume each male has a fe male partner. The warbler has re covered steadily since then, aided by a coalition of government agencies and nonprot groups that conserved its breeding grounds. The most recent count, in 2015, turned up 2,383 singing males, which was well above the recovery goal of 1,000. Kirtland's warblers build nests each spring at the feet of jack pines between 5 and 23 years old and 5 to 15 feet (1.7 to 5 meters) high, which are abundant in the sandy soils of north ern Michigan. Wildres historically swept through the region every few decades, burn ing down larger jack pines and popping open cones that produced new ones, ensuring an adequate sup ply of young trees for the warblers. But modern re sup pression broke the cycle. As part of the warbler recovery effort, federal and state agencies developed a system of logging and replanting trees to imitate what nature previously did. Those measures will continue after the species is declared recovered, said Scott Hicks, a Michigan eld ofce supervisor for the Fish and Wildlife Ser vice. A nonprot called the Kirtland's Warbler Al liance will help raise funds to cover the program's an nual cost of up to $4 mil lion. The Michigan Depart ment of Natural Resources will take charge of an other urgent task: battling brown-headed cowbirds, which lay eggs in the nests of other songbirds, includ ing warblers. Cowbird chicks out-compete young warblers, which perish as their seemingly oblivious parents feed and nurture the interlopers. Since the early 1970s, the Fish and Wildlife Ser vice has maintained dozens of traps in the warbler habitat zone. Decoys or food lure cowbirds inside, where they're euthanized. The strategy may be paying off. Cowbird infes tation appears to be easing, said Dan Kennedy, endangered species coor dinator for the Michigan department, which will devise a future plan after getting results of a study this summer. "The recovery of Kirt land's warbler is a great Michigan success story," agency director Keith Cre agh said.

Feds propose dropping songbird from endangered species list5 years on, marathon bomb survivors inspire medical advancesBOSTON (AP) In the ve years since the Boston Marathon bomb ing, medical science has made promising advances in amputations and arti cial limbs, in part because of lessons learned from the victims and research dollars made available as a result of the attack. Some of the 17 people who lost limbs in the April 15, 2013, bombing could, like many other amputees, benet from these devel opments, since many are coming to a crossroads in their treatment. A number still struggle with pain, and others may be looking to replace their prostheses, which are approaching the end of their useful life. "The collective experience in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing was a very positive one in the medical community because there was a lot of crosstalk between military and civilian surgeons," said Dr. Benjamin Potter, chief of orthopedics at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland, where three survivors were treated and doctors are attempting some of the cutting-edge procedures. "That exchange and that dialogue has been one of the silver linings to have come out of this, in that we're hopefully better educated and better prepared for the next one." Among other places where research is taking place is Boston, where doctors are working to combine an improved am putation method with more sophisticated articial limbs so that amputees can one day use their brains to control their prostheses. The project grew out of lessons learned by Boston doctors treating victims of the marathon attack. It also was made possible by $200,000 in seed fund ing from the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation a foundation launched by the family of a bombing survi vor treated at Brigham & Women's Hospital. "One of the things the bombings crystallized for me was the need to improve amputations," said Dr. Matthew Carty, a Brigham & Women's surgeon who is develop ing the new amputation technique. "We've made amazing advances in pros thetics technology re ally by leaps and bounds but the way we do am putations hasn't kept up to speed with the capabilities that exist now." The new lower-leg am putation technique, which has so far been done on seven people, preserves tendons normally severed during an amputation. Tendons connect muscles to bone and are necessary to move one's limbs. The hope is that researchers at the Mas sachusetts Institute of Technology can then de velop technology that will translate brain signals into movement of an articial leg. Amputees might one day even be able to per ceive sensations through their prostheses. "We're systematically redesigning the body along with synthetics in order to maximize communication between the body and the machine," said Hugh Herr, co-director of the Center for Extreme Bionics at MIT and a partner with Carty on the project. "It's remarkably exciting." While the fruits of that work may be years in the future, marathon survivors might also benet from other encouraging devel opments. One procedure involves directly connecting articial limbs to bones using titanium implants. These bone-anchored prostheses have been placed on hun dreds of patients in other countries, but it wasn't until 2015 that the use of the devices was allowed in the U.S. Roughly 50 such op erations have been done in this country, including 16 at Walter Reed, according to Potter. Brigham & Women's is also among the U.S. hospitals seeking to do the nation's rst success ful leg transplant The surgical feat has been ac complished in only a few countries, including Spain and Canada. Bombing survivor Marc Fucarile, who was the last to be released from the hospital, said he is in trigued by the new advanc es, even if he isn't in a rush to go under the knife again anytime soon. The 39-year-old from the Boston area lost his right leg in the blast, and his badly maimed left leg causes him unceasing pain. He fears another am putation might be his only option. The articial limbs that Fucarile and other survi vors were tted with gen erally last ve to seven years, so the patients will have to decide on the right technology for the next phase of their lives. "Sometimes the top-ofthe-line Porsche isn't always practical," said Paolo Bonato, who oversees re search on articial limbs at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston, where many of the victims were treated. "It might be more sensible to have a Honda." Rarely seen on civil ians ve years ago, the prosthetic devices used by many survivors have microprocessors and sensors that automatically adjust the limb and allow for more natural movements. They are now more common, but they can cost any where from about $15,000 to more than $100,000, said Spaulding's Dr. David Crandell. For some amputees, in surance often isn't enough to cover the costs. The Boston victims, though, received payouts from a compensation fund, and some have launched fundraising efforts or found other ways to cover their costly devices. Fucarile, whose carbon ber and titanium leg was initially developed to help wounded soldiers return to battle, said his prosthesis is no luxury. "If you're an insur ance company, look at the long-term effect and what you're saving," he said. "If I didn't have my pros thetic leg, I'd probably be overweight, have heart disease, be closer to diabe tes and probably be more depressed."

Thursday, April 12, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E5 ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) An Algerian military plane carrying soldiers, their families and some refugees crashed soon after takeoff Wednesday into a eld in northern Algeria, killing 257 people in what appeared to be the North African nation's worst-ever aviation disaster. Algeria's Defense Minis try said those killed included 247 passengers and 10 crew. An Algerian-backed group seeking independence for Western Sahara said 30 of its people, including women and children, were among the dead. The cause of the crash was unclear and an investigation has been opened. Algerian authorities did not mention any survivors but one witness reported seeing some people jump out of the aircraft before it crashed at 7:50 a.m. Wednesday. Al gerian TV Dzair said ve people were in a critical state but it's unclear whether they were inside the plane when it crashed. The ight had just taken off from the Boufarik mili tary base, 30 kilometers (20 miles) southwest of the capital Algiers, for the southwest ern military base in Bechar, according to Farouk Achour, spokesman for Algeria's civil protection services. The ight also included a layover in the southern city of Tin douf, he said. The Soviet-designed Il76 military transport plane crashed in a farm eld with no people nearby, Achour said. Footage from the scene showed thick black smoke coming off the eld, ambulances and Red Crescent vehicles arriving at the crash site and body bags lined up in the eld. Several witnesses told Al gerian TV network Ennahar they saw ames coming out of one of the planes' engines just before it took off. One farmer said some passengers jumped out of the aircraft be fore the accident. "The plane started to rise before falling," an uniden tied man lying on what seemed to be a hospital bed told Ennahar TV. "The plane crashed on its wing rst and caught re." The victims' bodies have been transported to the Al gerian army's central hospital for identication. Algeria is vast and plane ights are often the best way to traverse Africa's largest na tion. Tindouf is home to many refugees from the neighbor ing Western Sahara, a dis puted territory annexed by Morocco. The Algeria-backed Polisario Front, which seeks independence for Western Sahara from Morocco, told The Associated Press that 30 refugees who had been treated in Algerian hospitals were among those killed in Wednesday's crash. Algeria President Abdelaziz Bouteika declared three days of national mourn ing and prayers for the dead on Friday. The Il-76 model has been in production since 1970s and has an overall good safe ty record. It is widely used for both commercial freight and military transport. The Algerian military operates several of the planes. It was the rst crash of an Algerian military plane since February 2014, when a U.S.-built C-130 Hercules turboprop slammed into a mountain in Algeria, killing at least 76 people and leaving just one survivor. The heavy loss of life of soldiers was certain to shake Algeria to the core. The Na tional Liberation Army which grew out of the ght ing force which freed Algeria from French colonial rule is revered by Algerians. Today, the army is credited with saving the nation from a deadly insurgency by Islamist extremists in the 1990s and early 2000s. The battle continues with spo radic attacks around Algeria and networks dismantled by soldiers. The army's experience ghting terrorism has made it a valued ally of the U.S. and other western nations. The U.S. Embassy in Al giers expressed its "deepest condolences" to "our part ners and colleagues in the Algerian military," and their families. The previous deadliest crash on Algerian soil occurred in 2003, when 102 people were killed after a ci vilian airliner crashed at the end of the runway in Taman rasset. There was a single survivor in that crash. KFAR SABA, Israel (AP) While most of his fellow Jews were being killed or brutalized in Nazi death camps and ghet tos, Baruch Shub and his friends were hiding in the forests of the former Soviet Union, trying to under mine the Nazis by derail ing trains, burning bridges, sabotaging communication lines and killing the occasional collaborator. "You couldn't really ght the German army, given our means, but we did our best to disrupt them," re called the 94-year-old Shub at his retirement home in central Israel. "Whether or not it made a difference, I don't know. But it gave me a great sense of joy that at least I was doing something to get even with them." As Israel marks its annual Holocaust memorial day, those aging survivors who actively resisted and helped shape the coun try's ghting spirit are quickly disappearing. Shub is among perhaps only a handful of remaining Soviet partisan ghters. Only two remain from the great est symbol of resistance of all the 1943 Warsaw ghetto uprising. Israel will come to a standstill Thursday for its annual remembrance of the Holocaust's 6 million victims. It falls on the same date on the Hebrew calen dar as the Warsaw uprising the ultimately doomed revolt that played such an important role in dening the country's psyche. Even the day's ofcial name "Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day" alludes to the im age of the Jewish warrior upon which the state was founded. Shub said the conditions for resistance were limited given the all-encompassing scope of the Nazi geno cide, but those who could ght back did so. With their actions, he said they continued a tradition dating back to biblical times. "Jews always fought for their survival and national honor," he said. "I want history to remember that Jews did not walk like cattle to their slaughter." Shub's mother and three siblings were murdered by Nazis and their local collaborators in his native Lithuania. After a failed uprising in the Vilna ghet to, he escaped to the forests to join the underground network led by famed resistance ghter Abba Kovner. Four battalions of Jewish ghters raided vil lages for food and supplies and hacked away at com munication and electricity lines used by German forces, he said. After the Red Army liberated the ghetto in what is now called Vilnius in 1944, Shub returned to nd all its Jews killed by Nazi SS troops. Among the bodies strewn on the street was that of his father. A bloodsoaked note in his hand, written in Yiddish, said, "If anyone sees my son, tell him to take revenge." Israel's identity is dened by the axiom that never again will Jews be helpless in the face of an nihilation. But Shub fears that message is being lost. He is angered that a planned museum to honor Jewish ghters, along with the 1.5 million Jewish World War II veterans, has been bogged down in bu reaucratic delays for more than a decade. Dina Porat, chief historian at Israel's Yad Vashem memorial, said that thanks to the many books, lms and collected testimony, there is little danger of their legacy being erased. Still, the live witness accounts pose a powerful rebuke to the current wave of histori cal revisionism in several eastern European countries seeking to play down their own wartime complicity. Survivors have been outraged by a Polish law criminalizing the blaming of Poland for crimes committed by Germany during the Holocaust. Lithuania also has recently pushed for legislation to prohibit the sale of books that "dis tort Lithuanian history" by mentioning its complicity. Lithuanian authorities have launched investigations into the partisans' war time activities and accused Yitzhak Arad, a former chairman of Yad Vashem, of killing Nazi collabora tors who are regarded today as Lithuanian heroes for opposing communism. The charges were later dropped. "There is a process of rewriting history in these places," said Arad, 91, who blew up 16 German supply trains as a teenager. "We are fading away, so it will be up to the next genera tion to continue this battle with the tools at their dis posal." There are even fewer who remain from the single greatest act of Jewish resis tance during the Holocaust, which wiped out a third of world Jewry. Though guar anteed to fail, the Warsaw ghetto uprising symbolized a refusal to succumb to Nazi atrocities, and in spired other uprisings and underground resistance by Jews and non-Jews alike. Three-quarters of a cen tury later, only 89-year-old Aliza Vitis-Shomron is left in Israel to tell the story. The only other known surviving ghter, Simcha Rotem, is in ill health. Vitis-Shomron said the hardest moment was eeing just before the Nazis v anquished her comrades. They had few weapons and it seemed pointless to keep around a teenage girl who could escape and tell the world what had happened. "They said I was too young to die," said VitisShomron, who has three children, seven grandchildren and four great-grand children. "I still feel guilty that I got out and they stayed." Along with her mother and younger sister, she found a cellar to hide in outside the ghetto. She vividly remembers pok ing a hole in the curtain and watching the red skies above the burning ghetto where her friends were waging war. The resistance movement began to grow after the deportation of July 22, 1942, when 265,000 men, women and children were rounded up and later killed at the Treblinka death camp. As word of the Nazi genocide spread, a small group of rebels began spreading calls for resistance, carrying out isolated attacks and sabotage. The Nazis entered the ghetto on April 19, 1943, the eve of the Passover holiday. Three days later, they set the ghetto ablaze, but the Jewish ghters kept up their struggle for nearly a month, fortifying themselves in bunkers and managing to kill 16 Nazis and wound nearly 100. Vitis-Shomron said that Mordechai Anielewicz and other fair-looking leaders of the revolt had ample op portunities to escape. "They are the real he roes, the ones who stayed knowing they would die," she said. "They had dar ing and a will to avenge the Nazis and prove that the Jewish people did not sur render. There were those who fought back."

Page E6, Government and other scientists are proposing a new way to dene Al zheimer's disease basing it on biological signs, such as brain changes, rather than memory loss and other symptoms of dementia that are used today. The move is aimed at improving research, by using more objective cri teria like brain scans to pick patients for studies and enroll them sooner in the course of their illness, when treatments may have more chance to help. But it's too soon to use these scans and other tests in routine care, because they haven't been vali dated for that yet, experts stress. For now, doctors will still rely on the tools they've long used to evalu ate thinking skills to diagnose most cases. Regardless of what tests are used to make the di agnosis, the new deni tion will have a startling effect: Many more people will be considered to have Alzheimer's, because the biological signs can show up 15 to 20 years before symptoms do. "The numbers will in crease dramatically," said Dr. Clifford R. Jack Jr., a Mayo Clinic brain im aging specialist. "There are a lot more cognitively normal people who have the pathology in the brain who will now be counted as having Alzheimer's dis ease." He led a panel of experts, working with the Alzheimer's Association and the National Institute on Aging, that updated guidelines on the disease, published Tuesday in Al zheimer's & Dementia: The Journal of the Al zheimer's Association.ABOUT ALZHEIMER'SAbout 50 million people worldwide have dementia, and Alzheimer's is the most common form. In the U.S., about 5.7 million have Alzheimer's under its current denition, which is based on memory problems and other symp toms. About one-third of people over 70 who show no thinking problems ac tually have brain signs that suggest Alzheimer's, Jack said. There is no cure cur rent medicines such as Aricept and Namenda just temporarily ease symptoms. Dozens of hoped-for treatments have failed, and doctors think one reason may be that the studies enrolled patients after too much brain damage had already occurred. "By the time that you have the diagnosis of the disease, it's very late," said Dr. Eliezer Masliah, neuroscience chief at the Institute on Aging. "What we've realized is that you have to go earlier and earlier and earlier," just as doctors found with treating cancer, he said. Another problem: as many as 30 percent of people enrolled in Alzheimer's studies based on symp toms didn't actually have the disease they had other forms of dementia or even other medical conditions. That doesn't give an accurate picture of whether a potential treatment might help, and the new denition aims to improve patient selection by using brain scans and other tests.BETTER TESTSMany other diseases, such as diabetes, already are dened by measuring a biomarker, an objective in dicator such as blood sug ar. That wasn't possible for Alzheimer's disease until a few years ago, when brain scans and spinal uid tests were developed to do this. They measure certain forms of two proteins amyloid and tau that form plaques and tangles in the brain and signs of nerve injury, degeneration and brain shrinkage. The guidelines spell out use of these biomarkers over a spectrum of mental decline, starting with early brain changes, through mild impairment and Al zheimer's dementia.WHAT TO DO?People may be wor ried and want these tests for themselves or a fam ily member now, but Jack advises: "Don't bother. There's no proven treat ment yet." You might nd a doc tor willing to order them, but spinal uid tests are somewhat invasive, and brain scans can cost up to $6,000. Insurance usually does not pay because they're considered experimental outside of research. A large study is underway now to see whether Medicare should cover them and when. Anyone with symptoms or family history of de mentia, or even healthy people concerned about the risk can consider en rolling in one of the many studies underway. "We need more people in this pre-symptomatic stage" to see if treatments can help stave off decline, Masliah said.

New way of defining Alzheimer's aims to find disease soonerTop doctor urges access to overdose antidoteATLANTA (AP) The nation's chief doctor wants more Americans to start carrying the overdose an tidote naloxone to help combat the nation's opioid crisis and save lives. Speaking at the Na tional Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit in Atlanta on Thursday morning, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams issued his ofce's rst national pub lic health advisory in 13 years. Adams said he hopes those who are at risk as well as their friends and family members will keep the antidote on hand and learn how to use it. "You don't have to be a policeman or a reghter or a paramedic to save a life," said Adams, who pointed out that more than half of opioid overdose deaths in the U.S. occur at home. According to federal data, more than 42,000 Americans suffered fatal opioid overdoses in 2016, more than double the num ber who died in 2010. Naloxone can restore a person's breathing after it is injected or sprayed in the nostrils, quickly bring ing overdose victims back from near-death. The drug, which is often referred to by the brand name Narcan, is available without a prescription in most states and is regular ly used by rst responders across the country. Anoth er product, Evzio, is available with a prescription and delivers naloxone via a hand-held auto-injector. Adams said 95 percent of all insured Americans are covered to purchase naloxone. First respond ers and community orga nizations can purchase Narcan nasal spray, one of the most widely available products, at group dis counts of $37.50 per dose, drugmaker Adapt Pharma said in a news release. Generic, injectable ver sions of naloxone are cheaper. For those who are un insured, Narcan can cost around $80 per dose but the antidote is often available at little or no cost through local public health programs, Adams said. The surgeon general also wants more federal funds dedicated to increasing naloxone access on local levels. "Costs should not and, in the near future, will not be a barrier to accessing naloxone for anyone in America," Adams said. As of July 2017, all 50 states have passed laws improving naloxone access, according to The Network for Public Health Law, a nonprot that helps government agencies. Maine's Republican Gov. Paul LePage has been one of the most outspoken opponents of the push, arguing that naloxone doesn't treat addiction and merely discourages people from seeking treatment by essentially offering a safe ty net if they do overdose. Proponents, however, argue that greater access to naloxone doesn't draw people to illegal drug use or foster an addiction. Adams said naloxone will not single-handedly solve the opioid crisis and should instead be used "in conjunction with expanded access to evidencebased treatment." "There are people out there who think naloxone doesn't make a difference: you're just going to go on and misuse substances again," Adams said. "That would be like me saying I'm not going to do CPR on someone having a heart attack because if we save them, they're just going to go out there and eat fast food and be back here all over again." Adams' recommendation for more people to possess naloxone comes a month after Philadelphia's health department urged residents to do the same. Prior to his current role, Adams had been In diana's health commis sioner, where he promoted needle-exchange programs aimed at stemming the spread of diseases among intravenous drug users. The last surgeon general public health advisory was issued in 2005 and focused on prenatal alcohol expo sure.

Thursday, April 12, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E7 CITIZEN TRIBUNE PoliticsTuesday, April 10, 2018 EEE-3 Trump cancels overseas trip to address Syria threatWASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump on Tuesday canceled plans to travel to South America later this week, choosing to stay in the United States to manage the U.S. response to Syria's apparent chemical weapons attack on civilians. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday that Trump will not attend the 8th Summit of the Ameri cas in Lima, Peru or travel to Bogota, Colombia as planned, remaining in the United States to "oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor devel opments around the world." The decision marks the rst time an American president has not attended the summit. Vice President Mike Pence will travel in Trump's place. Trump on Monday prom ised a decision on Syria within hours, declaring that Russia or any other nation found to share responsibil ity for Saturday's apparent chemical weapons attack on civilians will "pay a price." The White House sharply rejected any suggestion that Trump's own words about pulling U.S. troops out of Syria had opened the door for the attack, which killed more than 40 people, in cluding children. Trump, asked whether Russian President Vladimir Putin bore any responsibil ity, responded, "He may, yeah, he may. And if he does it's going to be very tough, very tough." He added, "Ev erybody's gonna pay a price. He will. Everybody will." Amid the tough talk from the White House, the U.S. military appeared to be in position to carry out any attack order. A Navy destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, was underway in the eastern Mediterranean after completing a port call in Cyprus. The guided mis sile destroyer is armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles, the weapon of choice in a U.S. attack one year ago on an aireld in Syria follow ing an alleged sarin gas at tack on civilians. The Russian military, which has a presence in Syr ia as a key Assad ally, said its ofcers had visited the weekend site in a suburb of Damascus, the Syrian capital, and found no evidence to back up reports of poi son gas being used. Russia's U.N. ambassador, Vassily Nebenzia, accused Wash ington of deliberately stok ing international tensions by threatening Russia in a tone "beyond the threshold of what is acceptable, even during the Cold War." Trump said there was lit tle question that Syria was responsible for the apparent weekend attack, although the government of President Bashar Assad denied it. "To me there's not much of a doubt, but the generals will gure it out," Trump said. He promised a decision on a possible military response within 24 to 48 hours, "probably by the end of today." Emphatic in his condemnation of the apparent gas attack, Trump noted graphic pictures of the dead and sickened, calling the assault "heinous," ''atrocious," ''hor rible" and "barbaric." Fielding questions at the White House, Trump press secretary Sarah Sanders said it would be "outrageous" to say that Trump's recent an nouncement that he intends to remove all U.S. forces from Syria in the coming months had emboldened Assad. "I think that it is out rageous to say that the president of the United States green-lit something as atro cious as the actions that have taken place over the last several days," she said. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, in separate remarks at the Pentagon, also sug gested Moscow bore some blame. He criticized Russia for what he suggested was its failure to ensure the elimination of Syria's chemical weapons arsenal under terms of a 2013 agreement. Trump was to meet late in the day with senior national security aides, and no ac tion was "off the table," the president said. Monday was the rst day on the job for his new national security ad viser, John Bolton, who has previously advocated military action against Syria. Trump said, "If it's Rus sia, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all of them together, we'll gure it out." The United States, mean while, urged the U.N. Security Council to adopt a resolution that would con demn the continuing use of chemical weapons in Syria "in the strongest terms" and establish a new body to determine responsibility for chemical attacks. The draft resolution, obtained by The Associated Press, was circu lated ahead of an emergency Security Council meeting. An American ofcial said the U.S. was discuss ing with allies whether they would participate in a retal iatory strike. If Trump de cides to proceed quickly, the most likely partner would be France rather than Britain, because of concerns about obtaining permission from Parliament, said the ofcial, who wasn't authorized to discuss the planning public ly and requested anonymity. As U.S. ofcials con sider whether and how to respond, they are looking at what type of chemi cal agent might have been used. When Trump ordered airstrikes last year after a chemical weapons attack, it was a response to the use of sarin gas, which is banned by the Chemical Weapons Convention that Syria has signed. An attack with chlorine, which can be used as a weapon but is not outright banned by the treaty, could raise precedent issues, as there have been numerous recent allegations of chlo rine attacks in Syria that have drawn no response from the Trump administration. FEMA faulted for failed contracts to deliver hurricane aidWASHINGTON (AP) The Federal Emergency Management Agency awarded contracts for hurricane supplies without adequately researching whether winning bidders could deliver what they promised, according to a new investigation by Democrats on a Senate oversight committee. The investigation followed disclosures by The Associ ated Press in November that a newly created Florida company with an unproven record had won more than $30 million in FEMA contracts to provide 500,000 tarps and 60,000 rolls of plastic sheet ing for repairs after Hurri cane Maria damaged tens of thousands of homes in Puerto Rico. That vendor, Bronze Star LLC of St. Cloud, Flor ida, never delivered those ur gently needed supplies. The report from Democrats on the Senate Commit tee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs described failures by the Trump administration that prevented timely delivery of tarps and sheeting to hurri cane victims after the sum mer's storms. It focused on the Bronze Star contract and another awarded to Global Computers and Networks LLC of Fort Washington, Pennsylvania. Bronze Star was formed less than two months before bidding on FEMA's tarp and sheeting contracts. Global Computers registered as a federal government contractor in September, about one month before it won its FEMA contract. FEMA, an agency un der the Homeland Security Department, had awarded Global Computers a $33.9 million contract to provide 500,000 tarps but canceled the deal about ve weeks later because of the com pany's failure to provide any tarps. FEMA also terminated Bronze Star's contracts without paying any money after about four weeks. The report said FEMA ofcials were required to deter mine that a bidding company was capable of fullling a contract, and FEMA was permitted under federal rules to rank a proposal from a company with demonstrated successful past performance higher than one with no ex perience offering a lower price. "Once again we've seen massive contracts awarded to individuals and companies that would seem to have no capacity to deliver," Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said in a statement. She called the contracts "a failure to safeguard tax dollars and a failure to deliver desperately needed goods and services." The Homeland Security Department's inspector gen eral is still investigating the contracts. The head of Global Com puters, Dominique Pereira, told the AP late Monday that the company has been cooperating with federal in vestigators but declined fur ther comment. Phone calls to Bronze Star's ofces in Florida went unanswered throughout the day Monday. One of Bronze Star's own ers, Kayon Jones, told the AP previously that manufactur ers he contacted before bid ding on the contracts assured him they could provide the tarps but later said they could not meet the government's requirements. Jones said supplying the materials was problematic because most of the raw materials came out of Houston, which was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey. He said he sought a waiver from FEMA to allow him to order tarps from a Chinese manufacturer and for more time, but FEMA denied the request. Jones, who served in the Navy from 1997 to 2000, said he picked the Bronze Star name because he has an other company with the word star in it. Neither he nor his brother, who is the rm's coowner and also is a veteran, earned the Bronze Star mili tary commendation.China's president offers US possible trade concessionsBEIJING (AP) President Xi Jinping promised Tuesday to cut China's auto tariffs and improve intellectual property protection in possible concessions aimed at defusing a worsening dispute with Washington over trade and technology that investors worry could set back the global economic recov ery. Speaking at a business conference, Xi made no di rect mention of his American counterpart, Donald Trump, or the dispute. He prom ised progress on areas that are U.S. priorities including opening China's banking in dustry and boosting imports but didn't address key irri tants for Washington such as a requirement for foreign companies to work through joint ventures that require them to give technology to potential local competitors. Private sector analysts saw Xi's speech as an overture to help end the biggest trade dispute since World War II. It has fueled fears of a global economic chill if other na tions respond with their own import barriers. Markets surged in response in Asia, Europe and also in the U.S., where the Dow jumped 300 points before the opening bell Tuesday. Xi tried to position China as a defender of free trade and cooperation, despite its status as the most-closed ma jor economy, in response to Trump's "America rst" calls for import restrictions and trade deals that are more favorable to the United States. "China's door of opening up will not be closed and will only open wider," said Xi at the Boao Forum for Asia on the southern island of Hain an. Xi said Beijing will "sig nicantly lower" tariffs on auto imports this year and ease restrictions on foreign ownership in the auto indus try "as soon as possible." Trump has threatened to raise tariffs on Chinese goods worth $50 billion in response to complaints Beijing pres sures foreign companies to hand over technology in vio lation of its World Trade Or ganization market-opening commitments. Beijing red back with its own $50 billion list of U.S. goods for possible retaliation. The Chinese leader prom ised to encourage "normal technological exchange" and to "protect the lawful owner ship rights of foreign enter prises." "President Xi's speech could create a very good plat form to launch U.S.-China dialogue at the WTO to nd a deal on intellectual prop erty rights," said economist Rajiv Biswas of IHS Markit in a report. "This would be a victory for the world trading system and an important step away from the abyss of rising global protectionism." The dispute is likely to end "with a concession from China," said Larry Hu of Mac quarie Group in a report. Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, speaking at the Boao event, welcomed Xi's promises on nance, in vestment, intellectual property and auto imports. "We look forward to see ing these strategies elaborat ed, implemented and bearing fruit," said Lee, according to a transcript issued by his of ce. Also Tuesday, China led a WTO challenge against Trump's earlier tariff hike on steel and aluminum in a separate dispute. Beijing, which has issued a $3 billion list of U.S. goods including pork and apples for possible retaliation, requested 60 days of consultations as a rst step. If that fails, the Chinese government can ask for a ruling from a WTO panel of experts. Chinese ofcials deny foreign companies are compelled to hand over technology, but business groups say joint venture and licensing rules make that unavoidable. The United States led a WTO complaint last month accusing Beijing of violating its trade pledges by imposing unfair contract terms and allowing companies to use for eign-owned technology after licensing periods expire. Foreign companies complain Beijing is squeezing them out of promising parts of the state-dominated economy to promote the ruling Communist Party's plans to create Chinese global com petitors in elds including robotics, electric cars and pharmaceuticals. Xi gave no details on how those conditions might change, leaving it unclear whether that might mollify Washington. Easing rules that limit global automakers to owning no more than 50 percent of a joint venture with a Chinese partner might help to address Trump's complaints about technology as well as giving them more exibility in their biggest global market. Jake Parker, the vice presi dent for China of the U.S.China Business Council, which represents companies that deal with China, wel comed Xi's announcement but expressed hope for ad ditional steps such as ending requirements for joint ven tures and technology licens ing. "Ultimately, U.S. industry will be looking for imple mentation of long-stalled economic reforms, but ac tions to date have greatly un dermined the optimism of the U.S. business community," Parker said in an email. Xi repeated pledges to open China's nance indus tries to foreign investors but gave no additional details. Chinese regulators announced that intention in November, just after Trump ended a high-prole visit to Beijing, but gave no timeline or details. Business groups welcomed the commitment but said breaking into China's state-dominated nancial industries would be hard for new competitors and Beijing might impose restrictions that would make such an ef fort unprotable. The biggest beneciaries of a cut in China's 25 percent tariff on most auto imports will be the small number of automakers such as electric car brand Tesla that have no factory in China. Other au tomakers such as General Motors and Volkswagen that assemble vehicles in China with local partners could of fer additional models. More broadly, Xi repeated ofcial promises to expand imports and to narrow Chi na's trade surplus, another ir ritant for Washington. China reported a global trade sur plus of $423 billion last year about two-thirds of that with the United States. "China does not seek a trade surplus," said Xi to an audience of Chinese and foreign businesspeople. "We have a genuine desire to increase imports and achieve a greater balance of interna tional payments." The president promised to make faster progress toward joining the WTO's Government Procurement Agreement, which extends the WTO's free-trading prin ciples to purchases by governments. That can make a signicant difference in developing countries, where the government often accounts for most sales of computer software, medical equipment and other high-value goods. The bulk of Xi's 40-min ute speech was devoted to China's vision for economic development and its global role following a ruling party congress in October that con rmed him as the most domi nant Chinese leader since at least the 1980s. Xi sounded a conciliatory note toward neighbors with which Beijing has territorial disputes, saying China wants to pursue peaceful cooperative development. "We will not bully our neighbors," the president said. "Cold war thinking and zero-sum games are increas ingly obsolete," he said. "Ar rogance or self-righteousness can only bump into walls at every turn."

Page E8, HOUSTON (AP) Some National Guard members have started ar riving at the U.S.-Mexico border with more expected as federal government of cials seek ways to curtail illegal immigration. The Republican gover nors of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico on Monday committed 1,600 Guard members to the border, giving President Donald Trump many of the troops he requested to ght what he's called a crisis of mi grant crossings and crime. The only holdout border state was California, led by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, who has not announced whether troops from his state's National Guard will participate and has repeatedly fought with Trump over immigration policy. Under the federal law Trump invoked in his proc lamation calling for National Guard troops, gover nors who send troops retain command and control over their state's Guard members and the U.S. government picks up the cost. Brown's spokesman, Evan Westrup, said Califor nia ofcials still are review ing Trump's troop request. Trump said last week he wants to send 2,000 to 4,000 National Guard members to the border, is suing a proclamation citing "the lawlessness that continues at our southern border." Trump administration ofcials have said that rising numbers of people being caught at the southern border, while in line with seasonal trends in recent years, require an immediate response. Apprehensions are still well below their historical trends during the terms of former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, both of whom also deployed the Guard to the border. In Mexico City, a cara van of Central American migrants that had been heading north stopped in the Mexican capital. The caravan had sparked furi ous criticism from Trump, followed days later by his National Guard border pro tection deployment plan. Organizers said they never intended to go to the U.S. border. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey told a group of soldiers preparing to deploy from a Phoenix military base that their "mission is about providing manpower and resources" to support agencies on the border and de nied that there was a political motive. "I don't think this is a partisan issue or an identity issue," he said. "You show me somebody who is for drug cartels or human traf cking or this ammunition that's coming over a wideopen and unprotected bor der here." Texas Gov. Greg Abbott told San Antonio radio sta tion KTSA that he would add about 300 troops a week until the total num ber reaches at least 1,000 troops. Some Guard members will be armed if they are placed in potential danger, Abbott said, adding he wanted to downplay specu lation that "our National Guard is showing up with military bayonets trying to take on anybody that's com ing across the border, be cause that is not their role." There is no end date for the deployment, Abbott said: "We may be in this for the long haul." New Mexico Gov. Su sana Martinez's ofce said that more than 80 troops would deploy later this week. They will be the rst of an expected 250 Guard members from New Mex ico to serve on the border. South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, a Republican, offered to send members of his state's Guard as well. South Carolina sent troops to the border during Operation Jump Start, the border deployment ordered by Bush in 2006. Trump has said he wants to use the military at the border until progress is made on his proposed bor der wall, which has mostly stalled in Congress. Defense Secretary James Mat tis last Friday approved paying for up to 4,000 National Guard personnel from the Pentagon budget through the end of September. Mexico's foreign relations secretary said his government is evaluating its cooperation with the United States. Luis Videgaray said in a Monday interview with local media that he will give results of the analysis to President Enrique Pena Ni eto in coming weeks. The country's Senate passed a resolution last week saying Mexico should suspend cooperation with the U.S. on illegal immi gration and drug trafcking in retaliation for Trump's move. But Videgaray said "no decision has been taken to reduce or suspend any mechanism or cooperation." Joel Villarreal, the may or of Rio Grande City in Texas, said he did not agree with what he characterized as "the militarization of the border." "It's not good for busi ness, to be frank with you," Villarreal said. CITIZEN TRIBUNE NationEEE-4 Tuesday, April 10, 2018 APArizona Gov. Doug Ducey speaks to Arizona National Guard soldiers prior to deployment to the Mexico border at the Papago Park Military Reservation Monday, April 9, 2018, in Phoenix. Some Guard members start arriving at US-Mexico borderIs Facebook really changing? Or just trimming its data haul?Lost amid a urry of Face book announcements about privacy settings and data ac cess is a much more funda mental question: Is Facebook really changing its relationship with users, or just tin kering around the edges of a deeper problem its insa tiable appetite for the data it uses to sell ads? CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who is scheduled to testify to Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday, long dened the company's mission as making the world more open and connected. He's now tweaking that high-minded goal to emphasize positive community-building, not just connectivity. But it's not at all clear how much Facebook can shift without undermin ing what makes it one of the world's most protable companies. "Why is connectivity a good thing? Once you begin to challenge that, you begin to question the business mod el, which is about mining our data," said Richard John, a Columbia University professor of business history. Face book is "extraordinarily reli ant on the goodwill of users" who allow it to harvest what they share about themselves, he said much more so than other tech companies. Wall Street analysts are al ready counting on Facebook to survive a user revolt. Based on recent polling, GBH In sights analyst Daniel Ives expects roughly 15 percent of users to disengage some what from the social network following revelations that the political data-mining rm Cambridge Analytica improperly obtained personal information from 87 million users to try to inuence elections. In a worst-case scenario, decreased engagement and what Ives terms a "negligible" number of de leted accounts could cost the company up to $2 billion in annual advertising, Ives said. Facebook could likely survive a $2 billion cut in its bottom line. Its shares have rebounded after hitting their lowest price in nine months in late March. Since then, the stock has climbed about 4 percent to $158.61 at midday Monday. Less clear is how Facebook will handle the threat of increased regulation if Zuck erberg does not adequately resolve lawmakers' concerns this week. "Could Facebook still exist even though you have greater privacy protections? That's the billion-dollar question," said University of Tennes see law professor Maurice Stucke, who has argued against allowing a handful of tech companies to monopo lize everyone's personal data. In the days leading up to Zuckerberg's testimony, Facebook has implemented a series of changes. It took yet another stab at explaining what happens to user data on its service and rejiggered its confusing privacy controls for the seventh time in a de cade. The company also planned to alert users affected by the Cambridge Analytica breach on Monday, although those efforts were delayed, and announced an independent commission that will have access to Facebook data to study the effects of social media on elections and de mocracy. Last week, it an nounced new transparency and verication rules for advertisers and page administrators. Facebook is also restricting the access that outside parties have to data from Facebook users and groups, and it re moved an option to search for users by entering a phone number or an email address that it said "malicious actors" had abused to scrape infor mation from nearly all Face book users. Researchers generally consider such steps positive, if insufcient. Stucke, for instance, said a much stronger move would be for Facebook to fold U.S. users into the more stringent data protections the European Union will impose on internet com panies starting May 25. Zuckerberg has been un clear about whether Face book would extend the Eu ropean protections to the U.S. and elsewhere. He said recently the company will make its "controls and set tings the same everywhere, not just in Europe," although it wasn't clear exactly what he meant, nor how that would affect data collection and pri vacy. Privacy advocates are call ing for Facebook to embrace the European rules globally. In an open letter sent Mon day to Zuckerberg and law makers on both sides of the Atlantic, a group called the Trans Atlantic Consumer Dialogue said the law will offer "protections that all users should be entitled to no mat ter where they are located." Researchers such as Stucke worry that Facebook might be able to wait out the pressure. "There's a big com motion," he said. "You hire a lot of lobbyists. You pressure the agencies not to do any thing and just ride it out until the next scandal." But Jeffrey Chester, execu tive director for the Center for Digital Democracy, said it would be a mistake to view Facebook's current turmoil as a "one-time event." Thanks to the European rules, he said, "there's a noose that's tightening around the necks of the Googles and the Facebooks" that will eventually force changes in their business models." Some who favor stricter regulations want Facebook users to be treated like the advertising products that they are and to be paid for what they contribute to the social network. A few scholars say Facebook has so much inuence over media and society that the U.S. government should consider taming its dominance by forcing it to spin off Instagram, What sApp or other businesses. "We're in totally unprec edented waters," said Lina Khan, a Yale law professor and director of legal policy with the Open Markets In stitute. "I wouldn't be too conservative about what's realistic." Others who nd the Euro pean model too onerous say most U.S. consumers don't care if Facebook analyzes them and their friends in a way that keeps what they share anonymous. Such data collection "doesn't create a lot of harm and can create some signicant benets," said Joe Kennedy, a fellow at the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, which is backed by the tech nology industry. He cited targeted ads as a boon to consumers and said the data behind them can boost articial intelligence systems, which use vast quantities of data to "learn" human-like behavior.

AroundOsceola.com LONDON (AP) Yulia Skripal, who was targeted along with her father in a nerve agent attack in Eng land, has been discharged from the hospital, a British health ofcial said Tues day. "This is not the end of her treatment but marks a signicant milestone," said Dr. Christine Blanshard, medical director of Salis bury District Hospital. She said she would not provide details about Skripal's condition for reasons of patient privacy. The 33-year-old daugh ter of ex-spy Sergei Skri pal, 66, has been taken to a secure location. Blanshard said Sergei Skripal, the apparent target of the attack, is recover ing more slowly than his daughter but continues to improve. "Both patients have re sponded exceptionally well to the treatment we've been providing. But, equally, both patients are at differ ent stages in their recovery," she said. The doctor said no date has been set for the elder Skripal's release from the hospital. The two were poisoned March 4 in an attack that has led to a prolonged con frontation between Russia and Britain that has revived Cold War tensions. Both were in critical condition for several weeks after the poisoning. The British government, which accuses Russia of carrying out the attack, is likely to keep details about Yulia Skripal's location se cret, given the sensitivity of the case. If she is well enough, she is likely to be extensively questioned by British se curity ofcials and police about her recollection of events leading up to her poisoning. The Russian Embassy congratulated Yulia Skripal on her release in a tweet but said pointedly that Russia needs "urgent proof" that "what is being done to her is done on her own free will." Russia says it has no role in the attack and has demanded consular access to Yulia Skripal, who has Russian nationality. It is not clear where the Skripals will live if they recover enough to resume normal activities. British ofcials may feel Sergei Skripal would not be safe to live in the open any lon ger. Bob Ayers, a security analyst who used to work with the CIA, said it is possible Sergei and Yulia Skripal would be given new identities in Britain or the United States under a program like those used to protect witnesses in highprole criminal trials. They could also choose to live in the open under the assumption that Russia would not attack a second time, he said. "They may not want to go into hiding," Ayers said. "Now that the assassination attempt has been uncovered, the odds are pretty good the Russians won't take another run at them. They'll be under sur veillance, the cops will put cameras up, they'll keep good track of the Skripals." He said he would not ex pect Yulia Skripal to return to Russia despite her Russian nationality. British police say the lethal nerve agent Novi chok was placed on the door handle of Sergei Skri pal's house in Salisbury, an English cathedral city 100 miles (160 kilometers) west of London. The nerve agent also sickened Nick Bailey, a po lice detective who came to their aid. He was the rst of the three to be released from the hospital. Yulia Skripal had arrived in England from Moscow to spend Easter with her father the day before the attack. Sergei Skripal is a for mer Russian military intelligence ofcer who was convicted in Russia of spying for Britain. He was imprisoned in Russia and eventually set tled in England after a "spy swap." He was living under his own name in Salisbury, ap parently believing he would be safe because there was no known history of Russia attacking former spies who had been swapped. The British government maintains the Skripals were poisoned by a mili tary-grade nerve agent that could only have been made in Russia. Russia has de nied the allegation. The incident has led to a mass expulsion of Russian diplomats from countries aligned with Britain. Rus sia in turn retaliated by expelling diplomats from countries that sided with Britain. There are still many un answered questions about the brazen attack. If Britain is correct that the Russian government is to blame, it is not clear why Sergei Skripal was poisoned now, some eight years after his release in a spy swap. Some analysts believe Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to send a message to others who had betrayed Russia that they are not safe anywhere in the world. Others believe Sergei Skripal might have been involved in some pri vate business that made Russian ofcials uneasy. British ofcials have also not revealed how the Novichok was brought into Britain.

Ex-spy's daughter released from British hospital Syrian troops on alert after US threatens military actionBEIRUT (AP) Syrian government forces were on high alert and taking pre cautionary measures Tuesday at military positions across the country amid fears of a U.S. strike in the aftermath of an apparent chemical weapons attack near Damascus. Syria on Tuesday invited the international chemical weapons watchdog to send a fact-nding mis sion to investigate the sus pected poison gas attack in a rebel-held town over the weekend. The Foreign Ministry said Syria will help the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemi cal Weapons to investigate the alleged attack, which opposition activists say killed 40 people. President Donald Trump has threatened military ac tion, vowing to respond "forcefully" to Saturday's attack on civilians in the town of Douma and warning that Russia or any other nation found to share responsibility will "pay a price." Trump on Tuesday cancelled plans to travel to South America later this week, choosing to stay in the United States to manage the response to the events in Syria. The deci sion marks the rst time an American president has not attended the Summit of the Americas. Vice President Mike Pence will travel in Trump's place. Syrian opposition activists blamed President Bashar Assad's forces for the alleged chemical attack in Douma, the last remain ing rebel stronghold in the eastern Ghouta suburbs. The Syrian government and its Russian backers deny the allegations, and have questioned whether a chemical weapons attack took place. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Tuesday he is outraged by the reported attack, and that the use of chemical weap ons would be a violation of international law. He also reafrmed his support for an OPCW investigation. A senior Russian law maker said Tuesday that Moscow is willing to help arrange an OPCW visit to the site of the suspected attack. Yevgeny Serberen nikov, from the defense committee at the Federa tion Council, told the RIA Novosti news agency that Russia is eager for the OPCW to "nally start car rying out the functions it was created for." Asked in Berlin whether she supports the idea, Ger man Chancellor Angela Merkel responded unenthusiastically, saying that "the evidence that chemical weapons were used there is very, very clear." A Syrian air base was struck by missiles a little more than 24 hours after the alleged chemical attack, an airstrike that Syria and Russia have blamed on Israel. Israel does not typically comment on its operations in Syria, and it is unclear whether the mis sile attack was linked to the alleged use of chemical weapons. Seven Iranians were among the estimated 14 people killed in the missile attack, and a senior Iranian ofcial visiting Damascus said the attack "will not remain unanswered." Ali Akbar Velayati, an aide to Iran's supreme leader, spoke upon arrival in the Syrian capital on Tuesday, and was quoted by Iran's state-run news agency IRNA. Iran's semi-ofcial Tasnim news agency put the number of Iranians killed in the missile attack at sev en. It said the victims have been transferred to Tehran, and that funerals will be held in the victims' home towns across the country. Iran is one of Assad's strongest backers and has sent thousands of troops and allied militiamen to support his forces. The Britain-based Syr ian Observatory for Human Rights said that as of Mon day night, troops have been on a 72-hour alert and are fortifying their positions. The Observatory's chief, Rami Abdurrahman, said the alert includes all army positions and bases from the southern province of Sweida all the way to Alep po province in the north, the Mediterranean coast in the west to Deir el-Zour province in the east, along the Iraqi border. The Sound and Picture Organization, an activist collective in eastern Syria, said that Iranian ghters and members of Lebanon's Hezbollah group have evacuated their positions in the Boukamal area, near the Iraqi border, which was recently retaken from the Islamic State group. A Lebanese politician with close links to the Syr ian government conrmed that precautionary measures were being taken throughout Syria. The politician, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about secret military movements, said the atmo sphere and U.S. statements hint at a possible strike, "but there are no indica tions on the ground so far." The politician said the Syrian government was expecting a limited U.S. strike, similar to the one on Shayrat air base last year, which came after an al leged chemical attack on a rebel-held town in northern Syria that killed dozens of people.

CITIZEN TRIBUNE SportsEEE-2 Monday, April 9, 2018 BY STEPHEN WHYNO AP Hockey WriterTwo of the top four teams in the NHL are guaranteed to be out the playoffs after the second round. Goodbye Nashville or Winnipeg. Goodbye Boston or Tampa Bay. Thanks for playing. Thats the reality under the divisional playoff format that could pit the top two teams in the Eastern and Western Conferences against each other in round 2 after Pittsburgh and Washington were forced into that predicament in back-to-back playoffs. Theres not a whole lot of logic there, Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik said. Hows this for logic? If ranking teams 1 through 8 in each conference like the old format that was in place from 1993-94 through 2013, the No. 2 seed is facing the No. 4 seed, 3 versus 7, and 5 versus 6 in the rst round in the East and the West this year. A Penguins-Capitals style repeat could happen this year with the Centrals Predators and Jets on a crash course for a secondround showdown and the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning locked into a stacked Atlantic bracket with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Youd think thatd almost be a third-round series kind of thing, but so be it, Predators defenseman Ryan Ellis said. It is what it is. Youre going to have to see a team like that eventually. Theres not much you can do to change it. Maybe this spring will be enough to spark a change in the oft-criticized format in its fth season that is agreed to between the league and NHL Players Association through the 2019-20 season. The Capitals getting knocked out in the second round by the eventual Stanley Cupchampion Penguins didnt lead to much debate. I would assume after his year thered be a bigger appetite to do it, Washington general manager Brian MacLellan said. In the past it hasnt affected as many teams as might be required to get that movement. Its basically been us thats been the team thats not beneted from the 1 through 8. But well see what happens this year with a couple more really good teams being beat out in the second round. Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said the playoff format is not a burning issue for owners, wasnt discussed by GMs and should be looked at over a long period of time instead of focusing on anomalies. Its worked I think for the most part as we anticipated it would work, Daly said. I do believe in terms of the matchups in the rst two rounds of the playoffs, theyre better with this format. Theyre just more intense and more familiar with this format than they were in the old format. Reigniting and creating new rivalries was the goal of this playoff format, which mimics the one in place for most of the s and early s. Inequities have happened, but so has plenty of drama on Cup runs by the Los Angeles Kings, Chicago Blackhawks and the Penguins twice. I think that as a fan, you want to see matchups against rivals, said New Jersey defenseman Ben Lovejoy, who won the Cup with Pittsburgh in 2016. I think that that pits archenemies against each other more often and it can backre every once in a while. You can get two high seeds playing each other in the rst round or the second round and perhaps thats not fair but I think ultimately its good for the game to have heated playoff series against teams that dont like each other and see each other a lot. Heated playoff series make this time of year fun, but Predators versus Jets and Bruins versus Lightning would be just as compelling, if not more so, in the conference nals. Hockey people reluctant to fault the system typically take an approach like Winnipeg GM Kevin Cheveldayoff, who said, Whether the format itself is right or wrong, if you want to win the Cup, you have to nd a way to get through this format. The difcult part is the format isnt created equally, making one road to the third round or the Cup Final potentially easier than another. I dont necessarily agree with how it is, but its the way it is, said winger Wayne Simmonds, whose Flyers open against the Penguins. You have to have a mindset that youre going to play teams in your division rst and foremost and thats just the way it is. Orpik said players cant wait to revisit the format when the agreement is up, which could be part of the next round of collective bargaining talks. But theres no consensus on what would be better a return to 1 through 8, league-wide 1 through 16 or something else. The expected addition of a 32nd team in Seattle could spur change, too. You can play a 1-to16 playoff pool, but I would suggest to you that therell be inequities in that, Predators GM David Poile said, referencing travel among the issues. Pick your poison. I think you change that and you come up with the next idea, youd run into the same thing. ... I dont think theres any exact playoff plan that everybody would say is perfect.NHL playoff format will knock out top teams earlyHUMBOLDT, Saskatchewan (AP) Saskatchewans Ministry of Justice said Monday one of the deceased in the crash that killed 15 people en route to a hockey playoff game was misidentied. The ministry said the body of Parker Tobin was mistaken for that of Xavier Labelle. It said Labelle is injured but alive, and Tobin is among the deceased. The Ofce of the Chief Coroner has apologized for the misidentication. The ministry did not say how the error occurred. This was an identication error and Xavier is not deceased, the statement said. Our condolences go out to the family of Parker Tobin. Unfortunately, Parker is one of the 15 that have lost their lives in this terrible tragedy. Parker had been misidentied and was previously believed to have survived. The news comes after this shattered town mourned its revered local youth hockey team, trying to come to grips with a devastating highway accident Friday that also injured the other 14 people on their bus. People led into the teams home arena Sunday night for a vigil, ling up entry steps piled with owers, jerseys and personal mementos in a makeshift memorial. At the vigil, Sean Brandow, the local pastor and team chaplain, described how he happened upon the horric accident scene Friday night and heard sounds of people he knew dying after a semi-trailer slammed into the bus taking the team to a playoff game. We travelled up and arrived at the scene ... and walked up on a scene I never want to see again, to sounds I never want to hear again, Brandow said. The small towns disaster was a blow, too, for Canada and its national sport. Among the dead were Broncos head coach Darcy Haugan, team captain Logan Schatz and radio announcer Tyler Bieber. Brandow said he was on his way to the Broncos game and arrived at the scene right after the collision. He described hearing the cries and holding the hand of a lifeless body. To sit and hold the hand of a lifeless body, he said. All I saw was darkness and hurt and anguish and fear and confusion. And I had nothing. Nothing. Im a pastor, Im supposed to have something. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the driver of the truck that hit the bus was initially detained but later released and provided with mental health assistance. Police have given no cause for the wreck, saying a lot of issues remained to be investigated, including weather conditions at the time and any mechanical issues with the vehicles. Team President Kevin Garinger choked back tears as he read out the names of the 15 dead to those at the vigil. People embraced each other, crying. Boxes of Kleenex were passed down rows. Flowers ringed the team logo at center ice. Pictures of the dead and injured stood in front of the audience. Nick Shumlanski, an injured player who was released from the hospital, attended the vigil wearing his white, green and yellow team jersey, with a bruise under his left eye. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the injured at the hospital Sunday and then attended the vigil. He sat among the crowd with his 11-year-old son, Xavier, who is a hockey player. On the arenas front steps, one tribute included a Kraft macaroni and cheese dinner box, which was a favorite meal of Evan Thomas, a forward who died in the crash. A bouquet of pink roses adorned the box, which read: to Evan, game day special, love your billet brother and sister Colten and Shelby. Most of the players were from elsewhere in western Canada and they lived with families in Humboldt, a town of about 6,000 people. Families who provide homes for players are a large part of junior hockey in Canada, with players spending years with host families. Dennis Locke, his wife and three young children came to the arena to hang posters of forward Jaxon Joseph, who was the son of former NHL player Chris Joseph. The Locke family hosted Joseph and treated him like a son. Best person ever, Locke said. Down to earth, loved playing with the kids. His wife wiped away tears from swollen eyes. Forwards Jacob Leicht, Logan Hunter and Conner Lukan and defensemen Stephen Wack, Adam Herold, Logan Boulet were also among the dead, according to family members and others. Assistant coach Mark Cross, bus driver Glen Doerksen and stats keeper Brody Hinz, who was 18, were also killed. Herold, who would have turned 17 Thursday, played for the Regina Pat Canadians hockey team until just weeks ago, but was sent to join the Broncos for their playoff round when the Pat Canadians season wrapped up, said John Smith, the Pat Canadians manager. The Broncos were a close-knit team who dyed their hair blond for the playoffs. Garinger, the team president, said the team wont disband. The home page of the teams website was replaced with a silhouette of a man praying beneath the Broncos logo of a mustang. Were devastated, said Randolph MacLEAN, the hockey clubs vice president. At the center of this, we have 15 souls wholl never go home again. We have 29 lives that will never be the same. He said that as is the case with small town hockey across Canada, Humboldts arena is not just a recreation facility, but a focus of community life with the hockey team at its center. Its an energy that spreads through the town, he said.Canadian ofcials say body in bus crash misidentied APRob Muench, Mayor of Humboldt, speaks during a media event at Elgar Petersen Arena in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, on Sunday.

The Pentagon chief said he would not rule out a U.S. military strike against Syria in response to a sus pected poison gas. Trump planned two meetings with senior na tional security aides on Syria, in addition to a previously scheduled lateafternoon White House conference with leaders of U.S. military commands around the world. Mon day was the rst day on the job for Trump's new national security adviser, John Bolton, who has pre viously advocated military action against Syria. The White House delib erations came as Russia and the Syrian military blamed Israel for a predawn missile attack on a major air base in cen tral Syria, saying Israeli ghter jets launched the missiles from Lebanon's air space. A group that monitors Syria's civil war said the airstrikes killed 14 people, including Iranians active in Syria. Over the weekend Trump threatened a "big price to pay" for the sus pected poison gas attack Saturday in Syria that killed at least 40 people, including children. The government of President Bashar Assad has denied using poison gas. Ofcials in Washington were seeking to verify ear ly reports by rescuers and others that the Assad gov ernment was culpable. The Russian military, which has a presence in Syria as a key Assad ally, said its ofcers have visited the site of the attack in the suburbs of Damascus, the Syrian capital, and found no evi dence to back up reports of poison gas being used. At a photo-taking ses sion in the Pentagon on Monday, Mattis said "the rst thing" to consider in how to respond to the attack is why chemical weapons are "still be ing used at all." He noted that Russia was a guarantor of a 2013 agreement to eliminate Syria's entire chemical weapons arsenal, suggesting Moscow shares blame for the suspected gas attack. "And so, working with our allies and our partners from NATO to Qatar and elsewhere, we are going to address this issue," Mattis said in brief remarks to re porters as he began a meet ing with the emir of Qatar. Asked whether he ruled out launching retaliatory U.S. airstrikes in Syria, Mattis said, "I don't rule out anything right now." The U.S. military has a wide range of warplanes and other capabilities in the Middle East that could carry an attack. They in clude sea-launched cruise missile aboard ships with in range of Syria. Syria's state news agency SANA initially said the attack on the T4 air base was likely "an American aggression," but Pentagon spokesman Christopher Sherwood quickly denied the United States was be hind the strike and the agency then dropped the accusation, blaming Israel instead. Saturday's suspected poison gas attack took place in a rebel-held town near Damascus amid a re sumed offensive by Syrian government forces after the collapse of a truce. Syrian activists, rescuers and medics said the attack in Douma killed at least 40 people, with families found suffocated in their houses and shelters. The reports could not imme diately be independently veried. As U.S. ofcials consider whether and how to respond, they are looking at what type of chemical agent was used. When Trump ordered airstrikes last year after a chemical weapons attack, it was a response to the use of Sa rin gas, which is banned by the Chemical Weapons Convention that Syria has signed. An attack with chlorine, which can be used as a weapon but is not outright banned by the treaty, could raise prec edent issues, as there have been numerous recent al legations of chlorine attacks in Syria that have drawn no response from the Trump administration. One year ago this month, Trump ordered dozens of cruise missiles to be red at a Syrian air base after declaring there was no doubt Assad had "choked out the lives of helpless" civilians in an attack that used banned gases. White House advisers said at the time that images of hurt children helped spur the president to launch that air strike, and television new shows on Sunday aired similar depictions of suf fering young Syrians. On Sunday, Trump tweeted: "Many dead, in cluding women and chil dren, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syr ian Army, making it com pletely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price to pay. Open area imme diately for medical help and verication. Another humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever. SICK!" Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona said Assad heard Trump's signal that he wanted to withdraw from Syria and, "emboldened by American inaction," launched the attack. In a statement, McCain said Trump "responded decisively" last year with the air strike and urged Trump to be forceful again to "demonstrate that Assad will pay a price for his war crimes." Trump's homeland security adviser, Thomas Bossert, noted on ABC's "This Week" the timing of the suspected chemical attack almost a year to the day of the U.S. missile strikes. Asked about the poten tial for an American missile strike in response, Bossert said: "I wouldn't take anything off the table. These are horrible photos. We're looking into the attack at this point." GOP Republicans return to work with Trump wish list in mindWASHINGTON (AP) The Republican major ity in Congress was on a glide path to the midterms, having passed tax cuts into law and backed off budget battles with a yearend funding package. But President Trump was not impressed. Trump started picking apart some GOP ac complishments, including the big budget bill, and complaining that others, namely his border wall, remained undone. Now, Congress returns from spring break Monday scrambling to compile a to-do list that will satisfy a president they desperately need to be promoting their achievements, not under mining them, as they prepare to hit the campaign trail. "A lot of members would prefer to spend the rest of the year focusing on getting re-elected, but there's pressure from the White House ... to deliver more policy wins before facing voters," said Alex Conant, a GOP strategist. But belittling lawmakers and badgering them to work doesn't help instill voter condence in Re publicans already facing an enthusiasm gap with Democrats red up to go to the polls, strategists say. They need Trump on their side, not piling on. "Every day that Trump attacks Congress, he hurts Republicans' chance of keeping the majority," Conant said. The problems between Trump and Congress, fes tering for months, spilled into the open when the president toyed with vetoing the $1.3 trillion fund ing bill he thought spent too much money on Dem ocratic priorities and not enough on his, including the border wall. While Congress was away, Trump started talk ing about rescinding some of that money, work ing with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on a do-over package that would force lawmakers into another round of budget votes this spring or summer. It re mains under discussion, aides said. At the same time, Trump's revolving door of Cabinet secretaries has created a legisla tive logjam of its own. It has forced the Senate to launch lengthy conrmation hearings, starting with this week for Mike Pom peo as the new secretary of state. After that, there are Trump's picks for CIA director and Veterans Affairs secretary. The nomination battles are sure to dredge up tough debates over the Russia probe, the CIA's use of waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques now outlawed, and the spiraling costs and care at the VA. They're hardly the top conversations lawmakers would choose as their focus in the months before an election. A senior administration ofcial told reporters on a conference call last week that border security could be among the biggest is sues for Congress this spring and summer. That's likely news to Republicans running for re-election, particularly in swing districts or with sizable minority popula tions, who have shown little interest in the kind of beefed-up border security the administration has proposed to turn back un accompanied minors and clamp down on asylum seekers. To complicate the agenda further, Trump wants Congress to try again on an immigration overhaul, an issue Republicans were happy to shelve earlier this year after he rejected their compromise with Demo crats. They offered $25 billion for the border wall in exchange for deportation protections for the young immigrants known as "Dreamers." Trump's to-do list is not the springtime agenda Republicans in Congress were hoping for. Instead, they had expected to spend the next few months tack ling more modest mea sures. Among them: legis lation to address the opioid epidemic and symbolic House bills on making tax cuts permanent or achiev ing a balanced budget that, though unlikely to become law, could motivate Republicans to go to the polls in November. Republicans were planning to ride to re-election this fall on the success of their tax cuts package, a once-in-a-generation accomplishment that has long been among the GOP's top priorities. But at a campaign stop last week, even Trump seemed to have tired of the tax cuts. He literally tossed his prepared remarks aside as "boring" and instead fo cused on a caravan of Cen tral American migrants making its way through Mexico and on his plan for National Guard troops at the border. Trump even revived his attack on immigrants as "rapists" from his presidential campaign. "Remember my opening remarks at Trump Tower when I opened? Every body said, 'Oh, he was so tough,' and I used the word rape," he said during the tax reform roundtable in West Virginia. "So we have to change our laws," he said. "We have to have strong bor ders. We're going to have the wall." The tough talk may push voters to the polls for Re publicans in the more con servative districts who are already likely to have a good chance at re-election. But more than anything, strategists said, it helps secure Trump's supporters for Trump. "Would any Republi can other than Steve King rather have the president talking about jobs, the tax cuts, or have the president talk about migrants being raped?" said GOP strate gist Doug Heye, referring to the Iowa congressman who is among the most hard line on immigration. But, he added, "We know that Donald Trump didn't come here for glide path or status quo. He came to shake things up."North Korea tells US that Kim Jong Un ready to discuss nukesWASHINGTON (AP) North Korea's government has communicated with the United States to say that leader Kim Jong Un is ready to discuss his nuclear weapons program with President Donald Trump, ofcials said Sunday, increasing the likelihood that the unprecedented summit will actually occur. The conrmation from Pyongyang directly, rather than from third countries like South Korea, has created more condence within Trump's administration about the wisdom of holding such a meeting, as U.S. ofcials make se cretive preparations. The Trump administration has long said that if the North Koreans weren't ready to discuss giving up their nuclear program, there was no reason for the two countries to hold negotia tions. Trump took his own administration and other countries by surprise last month when he accepted an unusual offer from Kim to hold a meeting. The North had conveyed the invitation to a visiting del egation from South Korea, which in turn traveled to Washington and relayed the message to Trump. The president said yes to the meeting on the spot, even though the U.S. had not yet heard directly from North Korea about Kim's intentions. The U.S. later heard from other countries including China, where Kim paid a rare visit, that the North was serious about the offer. Still, North Korea's gov ernment has not said any thing publicly at all about a meeting with Trump, and the lack of known con tact between Pyongyang and Washington about the meeting has fueled further speculation about the seri ousness of Kim's offer. A Trump administration ofcial on Sunday said that the U.S. had "con rmed that Kim Jong Un is willing to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula?." A second ofcial said that conrmation had come through direct contact be tween American and North Korean ofcials. Neither of the ofcials would say when or how the contact took place, nor in what location. The of cials weren't authorized to comment by name and demanded anonymity. Previously, former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had said there were at least two or three chan nels through which U.S. and North Korean ofcials communicate from time to time. The Trump administra tion has not said where the meeting will place or whether a location has been determined, nor has an exact date been set. Initially, the White House said it expected the meet ing to take place by the end of May. It's unclear wheth er a date that early could be achieved or whether it might be delayed. The contacts between Pyongyang and Washington come as Trump's new national security adviser, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, prepares to start work at the White House formally on Monday. Prior to being named to the post, Bolton had long expressed hawkish views about North Korea, even advocating a preemptive military strike.

Page E12, Read carefully through the ne print of YouTube's terms of service and you might notice that you've af rmed you are old enough to watch it. "If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use the service," the terms say. "There are lots of other great web sites for you." It's a warning that goes unheeded by millions of children around the world who visit YouTube to watch cartoons, nursery rhymes, science experiments or vid eos of toys being unboxed. In a formal complaint being led Monday, child advocates and consumer groups are asking the Fed eral Trade Commission to investigate and impose po tentially billions of dollars of penalties on Google for allegedly violating children's online privacy and allowing ads to target them. "Google prots hand somely from selling adver tising to kid-directed pro grams that it packages," said Jeff Chester, director of the Center for Digital Democ racy, one of the groups that drafted the complaint. "It makes deals with producers and distributors of kids' on line programs worldwide. Google has built a global and very lucrative business based on kids' deep connec tions to YouTube." YouTube's business model relies on tracking IP addresses, search history, device identiers, location and other personal data about its users so that it can gauge their interests and tailor advertising to them. But that model isn't supposed to work for U.S. children, who are protected by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. That's a 20-year-old law that pro hibits internet companies from knowingly collecting personal data from kids under 13 without their parents' consent. The coalition accuses YouTube of violating COPPA and deliberately proting off luring children into what Chester calls an "adlled digital playground" where commercials for toys, theme parks or sneak ers can surface alongside kid-oriented videos. YouTube said in an emailed statement that it "will read the complaint thoroughly and evaluate if there are things we can do to improve. Because YouTube is not for children, we've invested signicantly in the creation of the You Tube Kids app to offer an alternative specically de signed for children." That toddler-oriented YouTube Kids app, launched in 2015, offers more parental controls but is not widely used and uses the same videos and channels that kids can also nd on the regular YouTube service. Although it's not known if the FTC will take action, the complaint comes at a time of increased pub lic scrutiny over the tech industry's mining of per sonal data and after the FTC opened an investigation last month into Facebook's privacy practices. "It seems like (the FTC) may be more reinvigorated and ready to take these is sues seriously," said Josh Golin, director of the Cam paign for a CommercialFree Childhood, which drafted the complaint along with the Center for Digital Democracy and a Georgetown University law clinic. Several other groups have signed on, including Common Sense Media, which runs a popular website for families, and the advocacy division of Consumer Re ports. "I think the day of reckoning has arrived," said U.S. Sen. Edward Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat who co-authored COPPA in the 1990s and says he wants the FTC to look into the YouTube complaint. "Americans want to know the answers as to whether or not the privacy of their chil dren is being compromised in the online world." FTC spokeswoman Juliana Gruenwald Henderson said in an email that the agency hasn't yet received the letter but looks for ward to reviewing it. The complaint was originally scheduled to be led last week but was delayed after the shooting on Tuesday at YouTube's California headquarters. "We take enforcement of COPPA very seriously and have brought more than two dozen COPPA cases since the COPPA rule was enacted," she said. The FTC's investigations aren't usu ally public, but it has previously settled child privacy cases with Yelp, mobile advertising network inMobi and electronic toy-maker VTech. None of those platforms are as popular for kids as YouTube, which has toddler-themed channels with names like ChuChuTV nursery rhymes, which as of last week counted more than 16 million subscribers and 13.4 billion views. It also has more personalitydriven programs that cater to preteens. A former FTC attorney who now advises companies on COPPA compliance said a case against YouTube would not be straightfor ward because it's a generalaudience service, making it hard to tell if parents are curating content for their kids to watch or letting them use it on their own. Kandi Par sons said the FTC hasn't yet set its targets on kid-direct ed channels within broader media websites, though that doesn't mean it won't. "If the FTC thought that a service was directed to children and it was deliver ing online targeted adver tising without consent, that could be a violation," Par sons said. She said the FTC could send Google a civil subpoena seeking more information, and also use other techniques to nd out how the service is tracking its users. Advocates say Google knows what it is doing. They point to its "Google Preferred" program that allows advertisers on YouTube to pay a premium to get their ads on the most popular videos. The program includes a "Parenting & Family Lineup" that has featured channels such as ChuChu TV, Fox's BabyTV and Seven Super Girls, whose topics include "uffy unicorn slime." YouTube does "age-gate" to block children who identify themselves as under 13 from starting an account that allows users to post videos, but an account isn't needed to watch videos on the platform. "It's laughable if Google execs claim that they think the parent is in charge of the online viewing behaviors of tens of millions of chil dren," Chester said. "Children are watching this con tent by themselves. Google is trying to look the other way." Chester, who helped cre ate COPPA in the 1990s, said he's condent that the FTC will take a serious look after years of letting Google off the hook for pretending that kids weren't using YouTube. "They created a success ful model monetizing kids' data on YouTube and really did not want to think about the consequences," he said. "Google is one of those companies that has failed to address its ethical dilemmas in a serious way."

He's set to tes tify before Congress next week. Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie previously estimated that more than 50 million people were compromised by a person ality quiz that collected data from users and their friends. In an interview aired Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," Wylie said the true number could be even larger than 87 million. That Facebook app, called "This is Your Digi tal Life," was a personality quiz created in 2014 by an academic researcher named Aleksander Kogan, who paid about 270,000 people to take it. The app vacuumed up not just the data of the people who took it, but also thanks to Facebook's loose re strictions data from their friends, too, includ ing details that they hadn't intended to share publicly. Facebook later limited the data apps can access, but it was too late in this case. Zuckerberg said Facebook came up with the 87 million gure by calculating the maximum number of friends that users could have had while Kogan's app was collecting data. The company doesn't have logs going back that far, he said, so it can't know exactly how many people may have been affected.

Thursday, April 12, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E13 BEIRUT (AP) Russia and the Syrian military blamed Israel for a pre-dawn missile attack Monday on a Syrian air base that reportedly killed 14 people, including three Iranians, while international condemnation grew over a suspected poison gas attack over the weekend that was said to be carried out by the Syrian government. Opposition activists said 40 people died in the chemical attack, blaming President Bashar Assads forces. The U.N. Security Council planned to hold an emergency meeting Monday to discuss the chemical attack. The timing of the strike on the air base in the central Homs province, hours after President Donald Trump said there would be a big price to pay for the chemical weapons attack, raised questions about whether Israel was acting alone or as a proxy for the United States. Israel typically does not comment on its airstrikes in Syria. It was the second such attack this year on the air base, known as T4, where Iranian ghters are believed to be stationed. Russias Defense Ministry said two Israeli aircraft targeted the T4 air base, ring eight missiles. It said Syria shot down ve of them while the other three landed in the western part of the base. Syrian state TV quoted an unnamed military ofcial as saying that Israeli F-15 warplanes red several missiles at T4. It gave no further details. Israels Foreign Ministry had no comment when asked about reports of the airstrikes. Since 2012, Israel has struck inside Syria more than 100 times, mostly targeting suspected weapons convoys destined for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, which has been ghting alongside Syrian government forces. Israel hit the T4 base in February, after it said an Iranian drone that had violated Israeli airspace took off from the base. The base, which was used as a launching pad for attacks against Islamic State militants who were at one point stationed nearby, is near the Shayrat air base, which was targeted by U.S. missiles last year in response to a chemical weapons attack. Saturdays suspected gas attack took place in the town of Douma, the last remaining rebel bastion in the eastern suburbs of Damascus. It killed entire families in their homes and under ground shelters, opposition activists and local rescuers said. Syrias state news agency SANA ini tially said the attack on the T4 air base was likely an American aggression, but the Pentagon denied involvement, and the agency then dropped the accu sation, blaming Israel instead. SANA said the missile attack resulted in a number of casualties, but provided no specic gures. Irans semi-ofcial Fars news agen cy identied three Iranians it said were among those killed. It did not provide their ranks or further information. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the war through a network of activists on the ground, said 14 died, including Iranians and three Syrian ofcers. Rami Abdurrahman, the Observa torys chief, said the assault targeted a mobile air defense unit and some buildings inside the air base. He said it also hit posts outside the base used by the Iranians and Iran-backed ghters. Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for President Vladimir Putin, told reporters on Monday that Israel had not notied Russia of the airstrike, even though there may have been Russian military advisers at the base, which he de scribed as a cause for concern for us. The U.S. launched several dozen Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syr ian air base after a chemical attack in the northern town of Khan Sheikhoun killed dozens of people almost exactly a year ago. In response to Saturdays reported attack, Trump on Sunday blamed Syrian government forces for what he called a mindless CHEMICAL attack. In a series of tweets, he held Russia and Iran, Assads chief spon sors, responsible. Trump was to meet with his senior military leadership on Monday, the same day his new national security ad viser, John Bolton, assumes his post. Bolton has previously advocated sig nicant airstrikes against Syria. The European Union also laid the blame squarely on Assads govern ment. The Syrian government denied the chemical weapons allegations, calling them fabrications. The Russian mili tary said its ofcers visited the hospital in Douma and talked to the staff, and said they did not conrm reports of the assault. First responders entering apart ments in Douma late Saturday said they found bodies collapsed on oors, some foaming at the mouth. The op positions Syrian Civil Defense rescue organization said the victims appeared to have suffocated. The organization, also known as the White Helmets, and the Syrian Ameri can Medical Society, a medical relief organization, did not identify the sub stance used but said survivors treated at clinics smelled strongly of chlorine. Those reports could not be independently veried because of a govern ment blockade around the town. Hours after the attack, the Army of Islam rebel group agreed to surrender the town and evacuate its ghters to rebel-held northern Syria, Syrian state media reported. The group also agreed to release its prisoners, a key govern ment demand. More than 100 buses entered the town on Sunday night to take the ght ers and their families to Jarablus, a town under the shared control of Turk ish troops and allied Syrian forces, said Syrian state-afliated al-Ikhbariya TV. Syrian state TV said two buses left early Monday and that 11 more buses were getting ready to move. Syrian state media said dozens of ci vilians who had been held for years by the rebels were set free. The evacuations follow a pattern of departures around the capital, Damas cus, and other major Syrian cities as the government reasserts its control after seven years of war. In his tweets Sunday, Trump called Assad an animal and delivered a rare personal criticism of Putin for support ing him. Trump has declared his intent to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria in the coming months, despite resistance from many of his advisers.

The show, which turns an early chapter of U.S. history into a com pellingly modern story, opened in London in December after taking New York by storm. Jamael Westman gained a bestactor nomination in the title role, but lost out to co-star Giles Terera, who plays Hamiltons nemesis, Aaron Burr. Terera said it had been the joy of my life to perform with the most diverse company hed ever been part of. Diversity is not a policy. It is life, he said. Backstage, the British actor said he knew the rst time he saw Hamilton that the show was the most extraordinary thing Id ever heard and seen. Every now and again, you have a show which comes along and sort of shifts things and moves outside of the realm of musical theater, he said, likening the impact of Ham ilton to earlier revolutionary musicals such as West Side Story, Les Miserables or Rent. Michael Jibson took the supporting-actor trophy for playing colo nies-losing British monarch King George III in Hamilton. The show with a score that ranges from pop ballads and sexy R&B to rap battles also won Oliviers for outstanding achieve ment in music, sound, lighting and choreography. The seven wins didnt beat the awards record haul of nine tro phies, set last year by Harry Pot ter and the Cursed Child. Jez Butterworths drama The Ferryman, about the past coming back to haunt a Northern Ireland family, won three prizes including best play, best director for Sam Mendes and best actress for Laura Donnelly. Bryan Cranston was named best actor in a play for his National Theatre performance as a news an chorman who snaps in Network. The former Breaking Bad star beat rivals who included Andrew Gareld, for playing a man with AIDS in the British revival of Angels in America and Andrew Scott for the title role of Hamlet. Its very difcult to be mad as hell when youre holding an Ol ivier, Cranston said, a nod to his character Howard Beales famous cry: Im mad as hell and Im not going to take it anymore. Cranston said the play, based on Paddy Chayefskys 1970s screen play, was highly relevant to the world of post-truth, fake news and too much information con fronting people today. His advice for the overloaded? Turn it off! Television, a phone, a tablet theyre tools and they have to be used properly, Cranston said. But they can also be misused. A hammer is a great tool to drive a nail into a piece of wood, but if I hit you on the head with it, Ive misused it. Being overwhelmed with in formation doesnt make us wiser. I think it makes us dumber. The trophy for best actress in a musical went to Shirley Henderson for Girl from the North Country. Sheila Atim won the supportingactress in a musical prize for the same production, a Depressionera drama set to the songs of Bob Dylan. The National Theatres production of Angels in America, cur rently running on Broadway, was named best revival of a play. The British productions Denise Gough was named best supporting actress for her performance as a Mormon woman in an unhappy marriage. The Nationals lush production of Stephen Sondheims Follies won the award for best musical revival. James Grahams politics-themed Labour of Love was named best new comedy. Bertie Carvel took the supporting actor prize for play ing media mogul Rupert Murdoch in another play by Graham, Ink. Named for the late British actor Laurence Olivier, the prizes honor achievements in London theater, musicals, dance and opera. Win ners in most categories are chosen by a panel of stage professionals and theatergoers. The Oliviers have become an increasingly glitzy affair in recent years, awarded at a black-tie cer emony studded with musical num bers. Under a London drizzle, British stage and screen stars including Michael Sheen, Alfred Molina and Imogen Poots were joined by Cuba Gooding Jr. and music stars Bever ley Knight, Queen guitarist Brian May and Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood on a slightly damp red car pet outside the Royal Albert Hall. Just as there was during Hollywoods awards season, there was a somber overtone to the celebra tions. Several British stage com panies have recently committed to stamping out workplace abuse, after multiple allegations of sexual wrongdoing by powerful men in the entertainment industry. Some actresses brought guests from feminist groups and organi zations working against domestic violence to Sundays ceremony in a show of support for the Times Up movement. Lesley Manville, a best-actress nominee for Long Days Jour ney Into Night, said the tide has turned in the battle for equality.

BY HYUNG-JIN KIM Associated PressSEOUL, South Korea (AP) South Ko rean prosecutors formally charged jailed ex-President Lee Myung-bak with a range of corruption charges on Monday, making him the countrys fourth leader to face a criminal trial in about two decades. Last Friday, Lees con servative successor, Park Geun-hye, was sentenced to 24 years in prison in a separate corruption scandal for which she was removed from ofce fol lowing months of huge anti-government rallies. The Seoul Central District Prosecutors Ofce said it charged Lee with taking a total of 11 bil lion won ($10 million) in bribes from the countrys spy agency, Samsung and others. The bribes include 700 million won ($636,000) from the National Intel ligence Agencys ofcial funds and $5.8 million in legal expenses that Sam sung paid on behalf of his private auto parts company, DAS, a prosecutors statement said. It said Lees govern ment provided Samsung with special favors such as a 2009 pardon of its convicted chairman, Lee Kun-hee, in return for the bribes. Lee had been ear lier ned and sentenced to a suspended three-year prison term in connection with losses at a Samsung afliate and tax evasion. Lee Myung-bak has also been charged with embezzling about 35 billion won ($33 million) in funds from DAS and evading corpo rate taxes totaling 3 billion won ($281,270), according to the prosecutors. Most of Lees alleged crimes took place while he served as president from 2008 to 2013 or when he was a leading conservative ruling party candidate before winning the 2007 election, prosecutors said. Lee was a Hyundai executive and a Seoul mayor before becoming the coun trys rst president with a business background. He has been held at a Seoul detention center since his arrest last month. He has accused the cur rent liberal government of President Moon Jae-in of retaliating against him for the 2009 death of Moons friend, liberal ex-President Roh Moo-hyun, who leapt to his death during a cor ruption investigation of his family while Lee was in of ce. South Korea has taken a series of steps aimed at rooting out corruption in recent years, but high-pro le graft scandals involving politicians and business leaders often occur. Almost all South Korean presidents have been arrested or embroiled in scandals at the close of their terms or after leaving ofce. Before Park and Lee, two other ex-presidents, Chun Doo-hwan and Roh Tae-woo, both former army generals, were convicted of bribery, mutiny and treason and spent time in prison. Parks father, dictator Park Chung-hee, was assassinated by his own spy chief in 1979 following 18 years of strong-arm rule.Another former South Korean leader charged with corruption
