By Charlie Reed For the News-Gazette e LGBT+ Center announced it would open its rst satellite oce in Kissimmee later this year. Better known as e Center, the 40-year organization provides, among other things, free HIV and hepatitis C testing seven days a week. LGBT is the common acronym for people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. However, e Center serves everyone, regardless of sexual orientation, said executive director George Wallace. The Center now provides HIV and hepatitis C testing for between 600 to 700 Central Florida residents each month, a large portion of them from Osceola County. Almost 30 percent of the people who used e Center Orlandos for health screening during the rst quarter of 2018 were from Osceola County, according to Wallace. We see there is a gap in services, particularly for Osceola residents and we want to bridge that gap, Wallace said. Like its Orlando home oce, e Center Kissimmee will also have local support groups, a cyber center and counseling services. All the services we oer are free. And our therapists see everyone, from people going through life transitions, marriage problems and post-traumatic stress disorder, Wallace said. A lot of people coming through are not gay. The Center also provides low-cost meeting space for other groups including Alcoholics Anonymous the Orlando Youth Alliance a nonprot, peer group for LGBT By Rachel Christian Staff Writer The 2018 midterm elections are right around the corner and as usual, Florida residents will face some important choices on their ballots. e Kissimmee/Osceola County Chamber of Commerce gathered last week during a legislative session round-up to discuss these upcoming races and recap statehouse victories. Aubrey Jewett, a political science associate professor at the University of Central Florida, served as the events keynote speaker. Jewett provided insight into the two biggest elections for the 2018 Florida midterms. Gubernatorial race The first is a hotly contested race for the governors seat. Current Gov. Rick Scott reaches his two-term limit this year, opening up the ring to candidates from both sides of the aisle. Jewett said many states are electing governors this year, but only four, including Florida, will be competitive races. Jewett first reviewed Democratic gubernatorial forerunners. Phillip Levine: Former Miami-Dade mayor. A 55-year-old multimillionaire entrepreneur who made his fortune running media companies in the cruise industry, Levine has described himself as a radical centrist. Jewett said the candidates biggest asset Party for the Planet.Animal Kingdom to host 20th anniversary celebration .Page 11.County earmarks $1M for affordable housing By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Osceola County appropriated $1 million Monday night to assist with aordable housing. It is the latest in a series of measures meant to address a severe lack of low-income housing. Metro Orlando which includes Osceola, Orange, Lake and Seminole counties ranks third nationally for its shortage of rentals that are affordable enough for the regions lowest-income residents, according to an annual report by the National Low Income Housing Coalition. Of the top 50 metro areas nationally, only Las Vegas and Los Angeles had a greater shortage than Metro Orlando. On Monday night, County Commission Chairman Fred Hawkins Jr. said the new aordable housing measure is a comprehensive package in line with the countys strategic plan for aordable housing. It aims to offset mobility fee increases that may drive away aordable housing developers. It also allows certain incentives, such as low income tax credit developments, and gives commissioners authority to purchase land for future projects with the appropriated funds. e appropriation wont actually increase the countys overall budget, Hawkins said. It simply moves money from one fund to another. e original proposal called for a $707,520 appropriation. It included $321,600 for a 100-unit aordable housing complex called Los Altos UCF professor talks upcoming governor, Senate raceThe Center Kissimmee to open this yearA colorful bunchNEWS-GAZETTE PHOTO/MARK HORAN Crowds celebrate at the end of the 5k Color Run Hero Tour that was held at Osceola Heritage Park on Saturday.

But Commissioners Viviana Janer and Peggy Choudhry both moved to round the gure up to $1 million to assist future projects. Choudhry also said she wanted the measure to include alternative forms of housing, not just brand new developments. Ive mentioned many times for a change of product, for example, from a hotel to tiny home studios, she said. As long as thats all in the picture, then Im good with it. With limited funding available from state and federal housing resources, local governments have moved to strengthen privatepublic partnerships with developers who can provide the kind of low-income housing the community needs, according to Mondays addendum. One reason the county is oering funds to Los Altos and Palos Verdes is to oset recent mobility and impact fee hikes approved by the County Commission earlier this year. Originally, mobility fees for both projects were estimated at $527,400. That number is anticipated to jump to $997,100 under new mobility fee rates, according to the addendum. Mobility fees help maintain roads and infrastructure around new developments. But they can also drive away affordable housing developments, which have much smaller prot margins than other housing projects. e cost of impact fees can affect a development and cause a financial strain that could result in the development not being viable, according to background information in the addendum. The strain could also result in fewer developers pursuing opportunities to construct aordable housing. e money appropriated by the Commission is meant to oset this strain. State law to give greater control, flexibility of funds to school districts See Law Page 7. By Rachel Christian Staff Writer The Osceola County School District clinched a major legislative victory in Tallahassee this year. anks to lobbying work by the School Board and Osceola Legislative Effort (OLE), districts will now have greater control and exibility over locally generated funds, such as the half-penny sales tax and impact fees. e issue was important to local education leaders across the state, including Osceola County Schools Superintendent Debra Pace. That was a big win for us, Pace said after a legislative event April 12. e way the Department of Education was interpreting some language, it really became a tremendous need. The triumph was included in three lastminute sections added to HB 7055, this years massive 208-page education bill signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott on March 11. Sections 43, 44 and 45 contain specific language that the School Board and OLE have sought for years. e language amends existing state statutes, and assists Osceola County in receiving its fair share of county funds for school construction projects, according to John Boyd, director of government and labor relations for the school district. It also loosens some regulations concerning construction projects and the state application process. Section 45 revises language in an education amendment from last year that made traditional public schools share capital outlay money with charter schools.

Weisheyer to host School District 3 update April 24POINCIANASerial robbery suspect stopped by Osceola County deputies By Brian McBride Editor A Bartow man who authorities said committed 20 robberies spanning from Bradenton to Orange County was arrested in Kissimmee on April 10 where he was planning yet another crime. Polk County Sheriffs Office robbery detectives, who were working with the Lakeland Police Department, Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office, Orange County Sheriffs Office, Osceola County Sheriffs Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF), arrested Terell Covington, 32. Covington was wanted for robberies in Kissimmee, Orange County, Lakeland, Winter Haven, Plant City, Hillsborough County and Bradenton. Polk county deputies obtained an arrest warrant for Covington, charging him with three robberies, two of which were armed. Thanks to the great teamwork with our Central Florida partnering agencies, his robbing days are over, said Polk Sheri Grady Judd. According to a Sheris Oce report, on April 10, while awaiting approval for an arrest warrant, Polk detectives went to Covingtons Bartow home, and watched him leaving in a truck. They followed the truck, which stopped at a Home Depot in Lakeland. Covington got out of the truck, and into the passenger side of a Nissan Altima, which then drove to Kissimmee, and circled a Dollar General store, the report stated. The driver of the Altima, 27-yearold Joshua Patterson, of Lakeland, then headed to a Dollar Tree store in Kissimmee. Thats when Polk deputies requested assistance from the Osceola County Sheriffs Office. Osceola deputies responded and made contact with Patterson and Covington. Covington was taken to a Polk Sheriffs Office substation for an interview where he confessed to committing 18 robberies in the Tampa Bay area. Covington said that Patterson was the getaway driver during three of the robberies, and that on April 10, they were planning to commit another one before being stopped by law enforcement, the report stated. Polk deputies placed Patterson under arrest for conspiracy to commit an armed robbery and booked him into the Polk County Jail. e Polk County charges for Covington were two counts of armed robbery, burglary with battery, robbery with a mask, two counts of armed burglary with battery and two counts of false imprisonment, He was being in the Polk jail held on no bond. More charges are pending from the other agencies. See Poinciana Page 7.

Page 4 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, April 19, 2018 Once again, Mark Zuckerberg is sorry. The founder of Facebook, who has apologized for privacy breaches throughout much of his companys existence, is back at it, on a much larger stage than ever before. e proximate cause is the Cambridge Analytica controversy. In violation of Facebooks rules, the Trump-linked political consultancy schemed to get access to the data of 87 million users. is has made Facebook a scapegoat for President Donald Trumps victory on par with the Russians and James Comey (at least before the FBI director got red and became a Trump adversary). Its not Zuckerbergs fault that he has suddenly been deemed on the wrong side of history, but the Cambridge Analytica blowup is bringing a useful spotlight on the most sanctimoniously self-regarding large company in America. Facebook cant bear to admit that it has garnered the largest collection of data known to man to sell ads against and line the pockets of its founder and investors. e problem isnt that Mark Zuckerberg is a businessman, and an exceptionally gied one, but that he pretends to have stumbled out of the lyrics of John Lennons song Imagine. To listen to him, Facebook is all about connectivity and openness -he just happens to have made roughly $63 billion as the T-shirt-wearing champion of the global community, whatever that means. Its this pose that makes him and other Facebook ocials sound so shiy. In a rocky interview with Savannah Guthrie of the Today show, Sheryl Sandberg was asked what product Facebook sells. Were selling the opportunity to connect with people, she said, before catching herself, but its not for sale. Something or other must be for sale, or Facebook is the first company to rocket to the top ranks of corporate America based on having no product or profit motive. Guthrie, persisting, stated that Facebook sweeps up data for the use of advertisers. Sandberg objected: We are not sweeping data. People are inputting data. Uh, yeah. ats the genius of it. In a reported exchange with a friend while he was a student at Harvard, Zuckerberg boasted of having data on thousands of students because people just submitted it. Zuckerberg has now managed the same trick on a global scale. On the one hand, Facebook has indeed made eorts to protect the data of its users, knowing that it cant risk a fundamental breach of trust. On the other, Zuckerberg has repeatedly said hes sorry for oenses against his users privacy because his business model contradicts his self-righteous public posture. Its possible to imagine something like Facebook run as a nonprot service for the global commons. ats not what Zuckerberg chose to do to. To his credit, he created a compelling nay, for some people, addicting product and made a killing for the ages. Perhaps the public pressure will force the social network to give its customers even more control over the use of their data. At a minimum, it will have achieved something if it gets Facebook to give up the saccharine one-world rhetoric about its mission and admit the bottom line is as important to it as any other profitmaking company.

Andrew Gillum: e 37-year-old mayor of Tallahassee. He was elected to the Tallahassee City Council when he was still a senior at Florida A&M. Jewett said that Gillum, an African American, will rely heavily on minority support across the state. As the most liberal of the four Democratic candidates, Gillum appeals to the Bernie Sanders wing of the party. Gwen Graham: An accomplished politician with a strong family name; she is the daughter of Bob Graham, former U.S. Senator and Florida governor. Graham was an active Congressional representative from the Panhandle area. Jewett said it would likely be her familys network of supporters and donors, not the Graham name itself, that serves as her major asset. She is running as a moderate Democrat. Chris King: A 38-year-old entrepreneur from Winter Park. King is CEO of a financial corporation that invests in affordable and senior housing projects. Jewett said King jumpstarted his own campaign over a year ago with a hefty personal donation. He is also an evangelical Christian. Among the Republican candidates discussed: John DeSantis: A 39-year-old Congressman from Volusia County. Formerly served as a military lawyer before entering politics six years ago. President Trump has already endorsed DeSantis and said he should run. Adam Putnam: commissioner for the Florida Department of Agriculture. He served in Congress for 10 years, representing the Central Florida-based 12th Congressional district. Hes originally from Polk County. Jewett said that during a normal election year, Putnam would be the Republican party forerunner, but noted that shiing political landscapes make it dicult to call. To be kind of an establishment Republican candidate in a Republican primary will not necessarily be a great thing for him, Jewett said. Richard Corcoran: Currently serves as speaker of the Florida House. Has yet to ocially announce his run, but has already started campaign ads. Like all of the Republican candidates, Jewett said Corcoran adheres to a conservative ideology. U.S. Senate race Republicans can count on about 48 seats and Democrats are looking to maintain 44 seats in the U.S. Senate. That leaves eight competitive Senate races for the upcoming 2018 midterms, Jewett said. This once again allows Florida voters to make a difference on the national stage. Jewett said Democrats certainly have some hope of taking over majority control of the U.S. Senate this year, but acknowledged that the numbers dont look terric. Holding the line and getting Sen. Bill Nelson reelected will be imperative for Democrats, Jewett said. Current Gov. Rick Scott announced plans to run against the three-term Democrat incumbent April 6, following months of political speculation. Jewett used a quote by the governor himself to classify the race: Its one of the most exciting races in the country between two of the least exciting candidates.

Thats in part because funds are still being gathered, Wallace said. In order to open, we need to raise $75,000 for our year-one operating expenses that will help mold what kind of programs we can offer and how many people will be coming in for testing, he said. Contigo Fund a South Florida nonprofit that provides nancial resources for LGBT programs got the ball rolling for e Center Kissimmee with a $26,000 grant earlier this month. Contigo Fund, which emerged from the Pulse massacre, recognizes the road to recovery continues and will for years to come, Contigo Fund Program Director Marco Antonio Quiroga said in a news release. An expansion of LGBTQ services and community spaces in Osceola County to support the predominantly Puerto Rican underserved community, which half of the Pulse victims called home, we see as critical to our mission. Zebra Coalition, another nonprofit Orlando-based LGBT organization, this year started oering counseling services in Kissimmee. Equality Florida, an advocacy group and educational charity, also has provided training for guidance counselors and social workers from the Osceola County School District to help better understand issues faced by LGBT students. The Center started 40 years ago as a mens crisis center and morphed through the AIDS crisis to be more of a health-focused place, Wallace said. Started 40 years as mens crisis center, e Center began focusing on health screening during the AIDS crisis. As weve gained more equality over the years, were more of a community center now and thats where our straight allies come in. Theyre so important to what we do, Wallace said. e Center will have a table at the second annual Pride Fest in June.

For the News-Gazette He was the best in the state for the last two years and he won a national title last week, so perhaps it is not surprising that Osceola High School junior Malyke Hines is the Osceola NewsGazettes Boys Wrestler Of the Year. Obviously it is a welldeserved honor, Osceola Head Coach Jim Bird said of Hines. He came into the season with the specic goal of just getting better every day and he certainly accomplished that. His only loss was during a holiday tournament to an out-ofstate opponent. In breezing to the Class 3-A FHSAA State Championship, Hines ran his season record to 50-1 on the season. He pinned his first three opponents in the state tournament before recording a 16-3 majority decision over South Dades Tyler Khawly-Orta in the nals. His victory kept two important streaks alive, as it gave Osceola an individual state champion for a 12th consecutive year and also gave the Kowboys a top six team nish for a 12th consecutive year. Hines would make his junior year even more impressive when he traveled to the National High School Coaches Nationals recently in Virginia Beach, Va. and captured his rst national championship, beating three state champions and a state runner up in that tournament. Not counting postseason tournaments, Hines is 173-4 in his Osceola High School career and will attempt to become just third Osceola High School wrestler to win three or more individual state titles next season. Averaging just one loss in each of the last three years, Hines was asked how he was actually getting better when his individual season records have been almost identical each season. Its a matter form, Hines Harmony defends 3A-8 boys track title; regional next Sports Editor Either home-track advantage is a thing, or the Harmony track program is the thing. The Longhorns had a very good day hosting the District 3A-8 meet, repeating as district team boys champions and taking second in the girls event. The boys team (163 points), thanks to a deep pool of runners from 400 meters and on out, beat out Auburndale (106), Winter Haven (103), Lake Region (74), Liberty (68) and Poinciana and Sebring (52.5). In total, we have 27 regional qualiers, which is a school record, Longhorns boys coach Kyle Carr said. Also for the rst time in school history, all three relay teams (4x100, 4x400, 4x800) will be moving on to regionals. Auburndale, boosted by its sprint program, won the girls meet (196.5) followed by Harmony (143.5), Liberty (117) and Poinciana (61). Lady Longhorns Coach Adam Kerns called it a great day on the girls side. We knew going in it was going to be tough catching Auburndale, he said. Overall we are happy the way things turned out and looking forward to improving at regionals. Harmony freshman Brooke Mullins was runner-up in the 800 meters (2:35.59), and the Longhorns swept the top three of the 1,600 (Allison Hicks, 5:43.68; Mullins, 5:47.53; Vanessa Bolen, 6:03.78) and 3,200 (Hicks 13:16.52, Mullins 13:21.4, Bolen 13:31.04). Mullins and Hicks teamed with Ariana Ramos Mercado and Claire Darrin to win the 4x800 (10:23.21) by 25 seconds. Overall, Mullins and Hicks qualified in four events for next week. ey were the horses on Saturday and did what they had to do, Kerns said. I dont think they get enough credit at the feat they did. The top four in each event qualified for the Region 2 meet next Thursday at Lakeland George Jenkins, and the top four there will go on to the state meet May 4-5 at the University of North Florida. Among Saturdays highlights: As expected, Poinciana senior Shaneylix Davila swept the 110 (14.20) and 300 hurdles (43.91). Libertys Christelle Bonzil, Alandi Jacobs, Emilie Edouard and Alani Jacobs formed the winning 4x100 relay team (48.83). The Jacobs teamed with Khadijah McClean and Queen Washington for second in the 4x400. Bonzil (winner on attempts) and Poincianas Jendaya Nesbitt both went 5 feet in the high jump. Nesbitt won the long jump (17-1.25), and Bonzil went second in the triple jump (34-9.75). Olivia Chamberts (7-6) won the pole vault for the Chargers. For the boys, Poincianas Charles Pierce (2:03.73) was the 800 meter district champion, followed by Harmonys Ahmeen Dinzey and Bradley Justesen.

Many parents are trying to live the dream through their sons and daughters the dream of landing a college athletic scholarship by specializing in a sport year-round. Unfortunately, most of these dreams are never realized. The odds of a sports scholarship paying for even a portion of a students college education are miniscule. The College Board, a not-for-prot organization comprised of 6,000 of the worlds leading educational institutions, reports that a moderate cost for college students who attend a public university in their state of residence is $25,290 per year. e annual cost at a private college averages $50,900. Meanwhile, the most recent data from the NCAA reveals that the average Division I athletic scholarship is worth only $10,400. More signicantly, the same study shows that fewer than two percent of all high school athletes (1 in 54) ever wear the uniform of an NCAA Division I school. Even if the dream is realized, parents likely will spend more money for club sports than they ever regain through college athletic scholarships. Thanks to the costs of club fees, equipment, summer camps, playing in out-of-state tournaments and private coaching, youth sports has BOYS WRESTLING: : Jaekus Hines, Esau Bazilme, Josue Calderon, Chase Fuller, Nolin Eady, Dion Bergan.

According to the authors, only 1 child in 54 actually gets a sports scholarship and very few of those cover the full cost of tuition, let alone room and board. e FHSAA feels an overwhelming majority of teenagers would be better served by playing high school sports and learning the life lessons they teach.

In education-based high school sports, studentathletes are taught, as the term implies, that grades come first. The real-life lessons that students experientially learn offer insights into leadership, overcoming adversity and mutual respect that cannot be learned anywhere else. Unlike club sports, coaches in an education-based school setting are held accountable by the guiding principles and goals of their school district. And the cost of participating in high school sports is minimal in most cases. While there is a belief that the only way to get noticed by college coaches is to play on non-school travel teams year-round, many Division I football and basketball coaches recently have stated that they are committed to recruiting students who have played multiple sports within the high school setting. In addition, by focusing on academics while playing sports within the school setting, students can earn scholarships for academics and other talentsskill sets oentimes nurtured while participating in high school activities. ese scholarships are more accessible and worth more money than athletic scholarships. While $3 billion per year is available for athletic scholarships, more than $11 billion is awarded for academic scholarships and other nancial assistance. Without a doubt, your sons and daughters will have more fun, make more friends and be better prepared for life beyond sport by participating in multiple sports and activities oered by the high school in your community. TEAMSContinued from Page 8. By Ken Jackson Sports Editor After a slow start, the Orlando City Lions have stomped on the gas and are in the express lane in the Major League Soccer Eastern Conference standings aer three wins. e latest was a dominant 2-0 road victory Friday against the Philadelphia Union. Dom Dwyer (his fourth in three games) and rookie Chris Mueller scored goals and goalie Joe Bendik was dominant in net protecting the shutout. Really proud of the guys effort tonight. The performance was, for me, the most complete game of the year. eres no question about it, Lions head coach Jason Kreis said. Our guys commitment to stay the course and not become too rattled I thought was really good. We couldnt be happier with the complete performance. Orlando City (3-2-1, 10 points) struck first when Sacha Kljestan chipped the ball over the Union (1-2-2, 5) back line for Dwyer, who took a touch before slipping it inside the far post in the 38th minute. e goal was the 99th of Dwyers MLS career. A fantastic cross from Sacha, just a little chip through, Dwyer said. I think were getting a good stride now. Seven minutes later, Mueller drove right through the middle of the Union defense and fired a low shot past goalkeeper Andre Blake. It was Muellers second career goal and gave City its rst two-goal lead of the young 2018 season. Just found a good time to get on the ball and make a good run, Mueller said. Its a big step for the club, getting three points on the road and getting on that three-game win streak helps a lot going into the next few games, but were still the farthest thing from satised. Despite picking up a yellow card in the 63rd minute, Bendik came up huge on shots from Union attackers David Accam, Fafa Picault and captain Alejandro Bedoya in the second half to preserve the Lions rst shutout victory since June 30, 2017 at Real Salt Lake, rst road victory of the season and rst threegame winning streak in nearly a year. The Lions return to Orlando City Stadium on Saturday to host Chris Wondolewski and the San Jose Earthquakes at 7:30 p.m.Orlando City runs winning streak to 3said. As a freshman and sophomore I was making a lot more mistakes. For the most part I was able to overcome them, now Im making fewer mistakes. Winning is just part of it, you always want to get better. Bird agrees. Hes much improved both on his feet and on the ground, and thats all because of his work ethic and willingness to get better. Hes the type of kid thats in the weight room at 6 a.m. Hes never been the type of kid that tries to skate by on ability alone. Hines added that having his younger brother (Osceola freshman Jaekus Hines) on the team made the season especially satisfying. It was really a lot of fun having him around and watching him develop this season, Malyke said. To tell you the truth, I was more excited for him at the state tournament than I was about my performance. Jaekus finished the season with a 41-6 record and surprised many by advancing all the way to the state nals in the Class 3-A, 106-pound. class. Their personalities are totally different, Bird said. Malyke is quiet, reserved and all business on the mat and at practices. Jaekus is more out-going and a bit of a jokester. Yet, they work really well together. Malyke is a great teacher and mentor to Jaekus. Malyke, who finished the season ranked 14th in the nation and sixth among underclassmen, will compete in several more national events this summer before getting ready for his senior season. As far as colleges, Bird said Malyke will have no shortage of options. All the prominent programs are calling and oering, Bird said. Hes put all that on the back burner for now. Malyke will wrestle at nationals this summer and then he will sit down in the fall and decide the best place to continue his career. HINESContinued from Page 8.

Page 10 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, April 19, 2018 OSCEOLA COUNTY HISTORY Jacob Wilson Aderhold was the son of German immigrant John George Aderhold and Margareth Hasselberger, of North Carolina. He was the youngest of their nine children, and was born on November 28, 1825, in Georgia. Aderhold spent his early years in and around Macon,, GA. Under the name of Wilson J. Aderhold, he enlisted, at the age of 20, as a Private in the Georgia regiment of Volunteers for the Mexican War, his service in the company earned him a fine military record. Upon his return to Macon, Jacob and Miss Harriet Jane Wagnon, were married on June 1, 1848. They moved to the town of Godfrey in Bibb County, Georgia, where Jacob listed his occupation as sportsman in the 1860 census. Although they lost a child in 1850, they had a son, Henry, in 1854. On March 15, 1861, Jacob organized Company A, 1st Battalion Georgia Infantry for the Confederate Army at Macon, with himself as Captain. He was promoted to Major on November 18, 1862, then two days later to Lieutenant Colonel. He served until the end of the war and was awarded a badge of honor for his bravery. Jacob returned to his family in Bibb County where he and Harriet had a daughter Ella. Around 1880, aer failing in business, Jacob and Harriet moved to Kissimmee; then part of Orange County, Florida. Harriet died on October 2, 1883. Two years after her death on September 8, 1885, sixty year old Jacob wed twenty year old Mary J. Cross, a native of Macon, Georgia. They had four children together, the last born when Jacob was 73 years old. It is reported that as an early settler his house on Park, between Main and Aderhold was the second built in Kissimmee. When Kissimmee had grown to a population of several hundred, Jacob erected a hotel, however it was engulfed in flames and destroyed in 1883. Jacob next embarked in a drug business under the name of Aderhold and Burley. He also served as a notary public in the rm of Aderhold and Johnston, real estate agents. When Osceola became a County in 1887, he was appointed Supervisor of Registration by the Governor. Jacob Aderhold was a leader in the growth and development of Kissimmee, serving two separate times as Mayor in 1891-1892 and again from 1900-1906. Sadly, Jacobs health began to fail when he was 81, so in 1907 he applied for and received a pension for his Confederate service. Suffering from Brights disease and a cancerous growth on his face, Jacob le Kissimmee in August of 1909 to live with his daughter in Tampa. Upon his death on April 3, 1911, Jacob was the only remaining charter member of the Friendship Lodge No. 10 of the Knights of Pythias of Kissimmee. His obituary describes his passing, Because of his interest and encouragement in building the Osceola County seat, he has been called The Father of Kissimmee. His remains were met at the station by a large number of members of the Knights of Pythias and laid to rest in Rose Hill Cemetery, in the presence of a large concourse of sorrowing friends. ank you to our friends at the Osceola County Historical Society for providing the editorial content and photos to bring this section to you.Kissimmee Pioneer Spotlight: Colonel Jacob Aderhold I n the summer of 1916, sixty-ve young men from Osceola County answered the call to form a National Guard unit, originally called Company K, but became Company B, 2nd Infantry.

John Young Pkwy., Kissimmee www.modernoorz.comCALL TODAY FOR A CONSULTATION 407-870-2727 11232017TNG 021518.TNG Responsible partying tips for teens Everyday Living As graduation nears for millions of students, proms, parties, travel excursions, and other opportunities to celebrate are on the horizon. Teenagers and young adults understandably want to let loose and enjoy a bit of revelry this time of year. But they shouldnt do it at the expense of their safety. Even though Monitoring the Futures survey of drug use and attitudes among high-schoolers shows some promising trends notably that past-year use of illicit drugs other than marijuana holding steady at the lowest levels in two decades drug and alcohol use remains a concern whenever teens are in social situations. Furthermore, the National Institute on Drug Abuse found high school seniors reported reduced perception of harm in occasional cocaine, heroin and steroid use, and reduced disapproval of trying LSD. Underage drinking, and binge drinking in particular, is responsible for the deaths of thousands of underage kids each year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. With planning and effective communication, parents, caregivers and teens can make smart and responsible decisions this graduation season. Lead by example. Parents need to be careful when speaking with teens about alcohol and recognize that kids may be observing their parents alcohol consumption. Parents should lead by example and avoid drinking to excess. Trust your judgement. Teens should not let peer pressure compel them to do anything they do not want to do. Its not necessary to drink or do drugs to have a good time. Encourage teens to surround themselves with like-minded friends who watch out for one another. Have a plan. Its important that students and their parents know where parties will be held and how to get there, and also how to get home. Make sure kids know that its unsafe to ride home with someone who has been drinking. Keep home parties safe. Parents hosting prom or graduation parties at their homes should limit invitees to a set number of guests and ask that their children do not advertise parties on the internet or social media. Gatecrashers may lead to unmanageable situations, and parents may have trouble controlling parties when there are too many people present. Focus on food, music and other fun that doesnt involve drugs or alcohol. Open communication and honesty can help young adults responsibly navigate the end-of-school social scene. Top dance hits featured at proms for the last 40 years High school is a pivotal time in a teenagers life that is marked by many academic and social experiences, including sports games, extracurricular clubs and school dances. School dances are so iconic and intertwined with student life that they have together with their accompanying musical score provided a setting for popular movies like Pretty in Pink, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Never Been Kissed. Perhaps no dance is more widely associated with high school than prom. Soon-to-be graduates have been attending proms for many decades. Music and dancing is at the centerpiece of these celebrations. Many people look back fondly on their prom experiences and remember the hit songs of their heydays. e following are some of the charttopping dance songs and popular hits were likely featured at proms over the last 40 years, courtesy of Billboard. 1978: Last Dance, Donna Summer 1979: Le Freak, Chic 1980: A Lovers Holiday, Change 1981: Try it Out, Gino Soccio 1982: Glad to Know You, Chaz Jankel 1983: Billie Jean, Michael Jackson 1984: When Doves Cry, Prince 1985: Neutron Dance, e Pointer Sisters 1986: Two of Hearts, Stacey Q 1987: Come Go With Me, Expos 1988: Never Gonna Give You Up, Rick Astley 1989: Secret Rendezvous, Karyn White 1990: Groove Is in the Heart, Deee-Lite 1991: Gonna Make You Sweat, C+C Music Factory 1992: Rhythm Is a Dancer, Snap! 1993: Supermodel, RuPaul 1994: % Pure Love, Crystal Waters 1995: Bedtime Story, Madonna 1996: Make the World Go Round, Sandy B. 1997: Discotheque, U2 1998: Ray of Light, Madonna 1999: Believe, Cher 2000: Your Child, Mary J.

It is commonplace for female guests of honor and those attending special events to wear oral corsages. Corsages are a popular feature at proms, graduations, weddings, and big birthday bashes and generally coordinate with gentlemens boutonnieres. e corsage has French origins and actually means bodice. Corsage was the common term for the top part of a womans dress or jacket. Eventually the word corsage was used as part of the term bouquet de corsage and represented the owers women would wear to special events. Although corsages are now typically placed about the wrist or pinned to the lapel or shoulder of a dress, corsages originally were worn on the hip or at the decolletage. ey gradually shied to other locations, but today requests can be made for wrist, ankle, waist, and even hair corsages. e corsage is generally designed to not only match the attire, but also the personality of the wearer. Favorite owers are oen chosen. In certain circumstances, groups of people will all wear the same type of ower or corsage to symbolize awareness of convictions to a cause, patriotism or another group eort.

The 5k run has participants running through obstacles while getting bombarded by colored packs of corn starch and is dubbed as the largest running series in the world that has been experienced by over 6 million people worldwide in over 35 countries. Top row: Lauren Friedriun, Jenna Luciano, Claire Murphy and Andrea Rodrigues leap for joy. Cindy Sederopoulos from Lake Mary crosses the finish line. Second row: Runners celebrate in an explosion of color. Channel Six anchor Kristen OConnor and reporter Vanessa Araiza along with Connor Giamietri tried the course for themselves.

Thursday, April 19, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E1 Section E April 19, 2018 Tribune Triple EWednesday, July 15, 2015 EEE-1 www.citizentribune.com Tribune Expanded Electronic EditionBY MELISSA DARABIAN Associated PressLife is busy. We dont always have the luxury of thumbing through our favorite cookbooks, marking appeal ing recipes with sticky notes for dinners sometime off in the future when we will somehow have time to saltcure a cod or dry-age a side of beef in our garage fridge. Sometimes, we just need to get dinner on the table. It doesnt have to be fancy, but it should still be tasty and nutritious. Enter the chicken leg and thigh! Often overlooked by the healthy cook due to its higher fat content, dark chicken meat is underappreciated. Yes, the dark meat has a few more grams of fat than the white meat of the breasts (a 3 1/2-ounce serving of breast meat has about 4 grams of fat, while the same amount of dark meat has just under 6 grams). And the higher cholesterol of the dark meat means the breast probably still should be in your rotation. But chicken legs and thighs are lus cious in texture and full of avor and protein (about 28 grams per serving). They also are much lower in saturated fat than most cuts of red meat, and they offer more iron per serving than chicken breasts. Perhaps most impor tant of all for the busy weeknight cook is that bone-in dark meat chicken is very forgiving in terms of cooking time. Which is to say, it is very hard to overcook dark chicken meat. So on weeknights when my hus band and I both have to work and one daughter has dance and the other three have soccer, lacrosse and more soccer, I totally appreciate the forgiveness offered by the dark meat. One of my favorite weeknight chicken leg and thigh strategies is to load them up in a large plastic bag in the morning, dump in some veggies and a quick marinade, then just toss the whole thing into the refrigerator to sit all day. After work, I dump the con tents of the bag into a baking dish and pop it into the oven while I change into something more comfortable (by which I mean sweats). Dinner, done!WEEKNIGHT LEMON CHICKEN DINNER-IN-A-BAGStart to Finish: 1 hour, plus marinat ing Servings: 4 8 bone-in chicken drumsticks or thighs, or a mix 1/4 cup lemon juice 1/4 cup olive oil 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 teaspoons dried thyme 1/4 teaspoon red pepper akes (op tional) Kosher salt and ground black pep per 1 large red or yellow onion, cut into 8 wedges 4 medium red potatoes, halved Using a paper towel in each hand to help grip the chicken pieces, remove and discard the skin by pulling it off. In a 2-gallon zip-close plastic bag, mix together the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, thyme, red pepper akes (if using), and a hefty pinch each of salt and pepper. Add the chicken, onion and potatoes, seal the bag and gently turn over several times to evenly coat the contents with the marinade. Re frigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 12 hours, turning the bag once or twice if convenient. When ready to cook, heat the oven to 375 F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Dump the con tents of the bag onto the pan, spread into an even layer, then bake uncov ered until the chicken registers 175 F at the thickest parts, about 40 minutes. If the potatoes and onions brown too quickly on one side, turn them for more even cooking.

Those wanting to try the winning combination had the opportunity to vote at Twitter.com/HeinzKetch up_US. If the poll closed with 500K votes in its favor, the brand will bring Heinz Mayochup to the United States. The sauce got the votes and will come into fruition. The name Mayo chup is already in erce debate on Twitter, so the brand has also committed to putting the nal name up for vote before the launch. Those who cant wait as the nation makes its decision can now make their own Heinz Mayochup combination with New Deliciously Creamy Heinz Real May onnaise and Heinz Ketchup. Made with high quality in gredients like 100% cage free eggs, Heinz Real Mayonnaise is the newest mem ber of the Heinz family and has a deliciously creamy texture thats crafted to taste more like homemade. At Heinz, we are always looking for opportunities to bring great tasting products to our consumers, said Nicole Kulwicki, Director of Marketing for Heinz, Our new Heinz Real Mayonnaise recipe lives up to the same great taste and qual ity people have come to expect from the Heinz family of products, including ketchup, mustard and BBQ sauce. To introduce Heinz Real Mayonnaise, the brand is launching a comprehen sive marketing campaign to drive mass awareness across TV, digital, print, sampling, and PR. In the campaign, the nation will meet Cousin Mayo, a member of the Heinz family that has just opened shop in the town of Sandwich, USA. One thing is clear sandwiches cant resist the great taste of Heinz Real Mayonnaise. The commercial and digital videos can be viewed here. Heinz Real Mayonnaise is available at retailers na tionwide in 13oz. and 19oz. squeeze bottles, and 15oz. and 30oz. jars, starting at a suggested retail price of $2.98.

(AP) Free food pantries are becoming nearly as common as the campus bookstore at a growing number of colleges. More than 570 campus food pantries nationwide are registered with the College and University Food Bank Alliance, which formed in 2012 and helps colleges set up food pantries and other hunger programs. New York recently required that they be established at all institutions in its state univer sity system. "You can't concentrate when you're hungry; you're irritable, you're not focusing. I did not per form well on some exams," said 47-year-old Borough of Manhattan Community College student Mela nie Aucello, who is working on a college degree in hopes of improv ing her family's quality of life. A report published this month by a lab at the University of Wis consin found 36 percent of 43,000 students attending twoand fouryear colleges who were surveyed in 20 states had trouble getting enough to eat, threatening the aca demic success that's key to over coming poverty. Among community college stu dents alone, 42 percent struggled to pay for balanced meals. "We see food-insecure students devote as much time to school and homework as other students, but they also work longer hours and get less sleep," said Sara GoldrickRab, a Temple University sociologist and founder of the HOPE (Harvesting Opportunities for Postsecondary Education) Lab at Wisconsin. Studies, she said, have shown such students are likely to have lower grades and graduation rates. For young students from wellto-families, spending time as a starving student scarng ramen noodles is often written off as a humorous rite of passage. But the demographics of typical college students are changing, and for many, hunger is a serious reality, Goldrick-Rab said. Food insecurity is related to soar ing college costs, stagnant family incomes, a poor labor market for part-time workers and employment requirements that make food stamps inaccessible, Goldrick-Rab said. There are also more lowincome students, sometimes with children of their own, she said. "There is no typical student who's food insecure; it can impact any type of student," said Clare Cady, a Temple University ofcial who is co-founder of the College and University Food Bank Alli ance. Food pantries cost little to colleges because they're typically run by volunteer students and faculty and are supported by donations of food and money. The student-run Michigan State University Student Food Bank, launched in 1993, was the rst. It buys food from a regional food bank and distributes it to more than 4,000 students and their families per year. In California, Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown in 2017 signed a law allocating $7.5 million to ght campus hunger not only for pantries, but also for other ap proaches, such as helping with ac cess to public benets programs. In New York, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo said an initiative launched this spring makes New York the rst state to require food pantries to be established at all 64 institutions in the State University of New York system. About 70 per cent already had them. At Schenectady County Community College, any student, regardless of income, can visit up to three times a month and select three days' worth of food such as canned beans, tuna, spaghetti sauce and pasta. "It helps immensely because it's really difcult trying to bal ance school and nances, and it's difcult to work to have money for groceries while in school," 22-year-old biology major Hannah Daignault said. "We have a lot of students who are low-income working parents or single people struggling to get by," said Robyn King, a college counselor who coordinates the pantry. "Some receive food stamp benets, but some make a little too much to qualify. We try to ll the gap." Monroe Community College in Rochester seeks to provide a path to longer-term solutions. Its food wagon distributes free granola bars with labels directing students to the food pantry and Single Stop, an organization that helps students apply for government benets such as food stamps, housing and child care. "The traditional student today is older with other obligations," Monroe president Anne Kress said. "A lot of them are living in a very narrow margin between nancial security and insecurity. What's go ing to connect them to nancial se curity is a college degree."Free food for thought: Campus food pantries proliferate APIn this April 10, 2018 frame grab from video, student Hannah Daignault fills a grocery bag at the Schenect ady County Community College food pantry in Sche nectady, N.Y. As a 22-year-old student living on her own, Daignault finds it hard to stretch her student loans to cover the rising cost of books and fees, let alone food and rent, so she was thrilled when a campus food pan try opened last year.

AroundOsceola.com CITIZEN TRIBUNE FoodEEE-2 Wednesday, April 18, 2018 BY MELISSA D'ARABIAN Associated PressNot a day goes by that I don't get a recipe request or question about the Instant Pot. So, dear readers, today is the day for my starter recipe for you Instant Pot (Multi-Pot, etc.) fans. I'll start by pointing out that we are really talking about here is an automated, easy-to-use electric pressure cooker. I hear a collective sigh of recognition from a whole generation of homecooks who have relied on a pressure cooker for years to deliver stews, chilis and braises to their families in quick order. But for the rest of us who were freaked out by man aging the pressure on the stovetop ourselves, fearing exploding hot liquids or bursts of scalding steam, an automated pressure cooker welcomes us into the fold. Cooking under high pres sure speeds up the process quite a bit, meaning you can have tender braised meat in minutes instead of hours, which can be a boon for weeknight meals. In case you decide to get an electric pressure cooker, here are a few tips. First, read the entire manual before you start cooking anything. Even if you are one to put an entire Ikea living room set together with nary a glance at the instructions, read the manual. It will ex plain how the cooker works, and give you step-by-step operating instructions. My second tip is to start with something easy that can't be overcooked: stock or bone broth, for example. Load up the pressure cooker with bones and a few hunks of onion and celery, cover with water (don't overll), and set the timed cooker (exactly how long is in you guessed it your manual see it's paying off already!). Next tip: Use less liquid than you would use stovetop as evaporation is eliminated, and don't overcook. High pressure means you can't easily open the lid to check on food's progress and texture as you would with a typical stovetop braise. Be extra aware of the possibil ity of overcooking if you are cooking tougher meat with tender vegetables. Finally, be aware that "instant" is a bit of a misnomer. While "cook time" in any recipe is relatively short today's recipe for Instant Dijon Chicken only "cooks" for 10 minutes don't for get to add the time it takes to come to pressure (about 5-15 minutes) plus time for pressure release, if you aren't manually releasing the pressure (which I don't rec ommend for a newbie). Just in case any of you thought that dinner would be done in an actual instant.INSTANT DIJON CHICKENServings: 6 Start to nish: 40 minutes 1 14-ounce can diced to matoes 1/4 cup dry white wine 2 teaspoons dried tarra gon (or 1 teaspoon fresh, chopped) 1/2 large yellow onion, chopped, about 3/4 cup 4 garlic cloves, minced 2 pounds boneless skin less chicken thighs, trimmed of excess fat 1/2 pound white button mushrooms, wiped clean and halved 2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch piec es 1/4 cup Dijon mustard Additional tarragon or chopped parsley for garnish, optional salt and pepper Special equipment: Electric Pressure Cooker (such as Instant Pot or Multi-Pot) Spray the inside of an electric pressure cooker with an olive oil mister for easy cleanup. Place the canned diced tomatoes, wine, tar ragon and garlic at the bottom of the pot and stir with a wooden spoon to blend. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with salt and pepper, and cut each thigh twice (into three pieces), and place on top of the tomato mixture. Place the halved mushrooms and cut carrot pieces on top of the chicken. Place the lid on, secure, and close the pressure valve. Set the timer to 10 minutes at high pressure. Once the cooking is done, allow the pressure cooker to sit for 10 minutes, allow ing the pressure to release slowly (without moving the valve). Then, carefully turn the pressure valve to open, releasing any remaining pressure. (Note: it will take 8-10 minutes for the cooker to come to pressure, plus 10 minutes of cooking time, plus the release time, so total cooking time will be near 30 minutes.) Spoon about 1/2 cup of the cook ing liquid into a small bowl and whisk in the Dijon mus tard until creamy. Whisk the mustard mixture into the pot of cooked chicken. Top with parsley or additional tarragon, if desired. Serve with cooked cauli ower rice, spaghetti squash, quinoa or brown rice. Chef's Note: The dish can be made in a conventional pot on a stove.

Fasting is intended to cleanse the soul, allowing Muslims to turn their attention inward, toward charity work and prayer, and away from material things. One of the dishes on many tables in Levantine countries during Ramadan is fattoush. It may be served during the evening break fasts, and is often part of the celebratory spread that marks the end of the month of abstinence. Many countries have a version of fattoush. As with many cross-cultural dishes, researching the different varieties is both fun and slightly exhausting. There's always some type of at bread, such as pita, and tomatoes and cucumbers. But then ... lettuce or no let tuce? Vegetables sliced or diced? Radishes? Peppers? Lemon or lime juice? A bit of sweetener? Sumac? Choices to be made. Mince your garlic as much as you can so that it really blends into the dressing. A way to get it superne is to chop it quite a bit, then sprinkle on a bit of salt and drag the at side of the knife blade across the gar lic several times, pressing down as you go to create a paste. Chop some more, drag the knife over it once again, repeat, and soon you will have a ne garlic paste. I used a little pomegran ate syrup in my dressing because I had a bottle lying around (which I realize is not normal for most Ameri can cooks). Use honey if you are not as ingredientnerdy as I am (or you can nd the syrup online or in a specialty foods store). Sumac is a spice made from berries that grow wild on bushes in Lebanon and other countries in the re gion; it's a classic fattoush seasoning. The avor is tart and tangy. You could use that instead of the za'atar, which is a lovely, tangy and earthy combination of sumac, thyme, sesame and marjoram (sometimes cumin), and is often easier to nd in supermarkets.FATTOUSHServes 6 Start to nish: 30 min utes Pita Crisps: 2 pieces pita bread 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon za'atar Salad: 1 heart of romaine, thinly sliced crosswise 4 Persian cucumbers, sliced, or 1 seedless or hothouse cucumber, halved lengthwise, seeds removed, and thinly sliced 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved 1/2 cup nely diced red onion 4 scallions trimmed and thinly sliced (white and green parts) 6 radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced 1 cup fresh parsley leaves Vinaigrette: 1/4 cup olive oil 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice 1 teaspoon pomegranate syrup or honey 1 teaspoon very nely minced garlic (almost a paste) 3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint 1/2 teaspoon za'atar Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Make the Pita Crisps. Brush the tops of the pitas with the tablespoon of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and za'atar. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 4 to 5 minutes, until toasted and crisp. Remove and let cool. Make the Salad: In a large bowl combine the let tuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, scallions, radishes and parsley. Make the Vinaigrette: In a small bowl, combine the 1/4 cup olive oil, lime juice, pomegranate syrup or hon ey, garlic, mint, za'atar, and salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well. Break the cooled pita into pieces about 1-inch large (they will be uneven) and add them to the salad just before serving. Give a nal toss, let sit for 5 minutes so the pita starts to soften just slightly in the dressing, and serve.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump on Wednesday conrmed that his CIA chief secret ly met with Kim Jong Un in North Korea and said "a good relationship was formed" heading into the adversaries' anticipated summit. Mike Pompeo's highly unusual talks took place "last week," Trump tweet ed, and "went smoothly," with details about the pres idential meeting within the next few months "being worked out now." "Denuclearization will be a great thing for World, but also for North Korea!" Trump wrote while at his Florida estate, where he was hosting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Trump had disclosed on Tuesday that the U.S. and North Korea were holding direct talks at "extremely high levels" in preparation for a possible summit. He said ve locations were under consideration for the meeting, which could take place by early June. Conrmation of Pompeo's trip later came from two ofcials, who were not authorized to discuss the meeting publicly and spoke on condition of ano nymity. The Washington Post, which rst reported the development, said it took place over Easter weekend just over two weeks ago, shortly after Pompeo was nominated to become secretary of state. Two White House ofcials, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive discussions, conrmed Wednesday that the trip took place over Easter weekend. Kim's offer for a sum mit was initially conveyed to Trump by South Korea last month, and the president shocked many by ac cepting it. U.S. ofcials indicated over the past two weeks that North Korea's government had communicated directly with Washington that it was ready to discuss its nuclear weap ons program. It would be the rst-ever summit between the U.S. and North Korea during more than six decades of hostility since the Korean War. North Korea's nuclear weapons and its capability to deliver them by ballistic missile pose a growing threat to the U.S. mainland. The U.S. and North Korea do not have formal diplomatic relations, complicating the arrangements for contacts between the two governments. It is not unprecedented for U.S. in telligence ofcials to serve as a conduit for communication with Pyongyang. In 2014, the then-director of U.S. national intelli gence, James Clapper, se cretly visited North Korea to bring back two Ameri can detainees. China, North Korea's closest ally, said it wel comes direct contact and talks between the U.S. and North Korea after news emerged of Pompeo's meeting with Kim. Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a brieng Wednesday that Beijing hopes the two sides will work on a political resolu tion of tensions on the Ko rean Peninsula and set up a peace mechanism. The Koreas are technically still in a state of war after ght ing in the 1950-53 Korean War ended with a ceasere, not a peace treaty. At a Senate hearing last week on his nomi nation, Pompeo played down expectations for a breakthrough deal on end ing North Korea's nuclear weapons program at the planned summit, but said it could lay the ground work for a comprehensive agreement on denuclear ization. "I'm optimistic that the United States government can set the conditions for that appropriately so that the president and the North Korean leader can have that conversation and will set us down the course of achieving a diplomatic outcome that America and the world so desperately need," Pompeo told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. After a year of escalating tensions, when North Korea conducted nuclear and long-range missile tests that drew world con demnation, Kim has piv oted to international out reach. The young leader met China's President Xi Jin ping in Beijing in late March, Kim's rst trip abroad since taking power six years ago. He is set to meet South Korean Presi dent Moon Jae-in in the demilitarized zone between the rival Koreas on April 27.

Trump says 'good relationship' formed with North Korea DOJ watchdog finds himself in familiar political hot seatWASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump wasted no time before seizing on last week's re port by the Justice Depart ment's internal watchdog on misconduct allegations against the FBI's former No. 2 ofcial, Andrew McCabe. Trump tweeted it was proof that his archri val James Comey, the for mer FBI director, "totally controlled" McCabe. But the report by In spector General Michael Horowitz said no such thing. In fact, it depicted clashing accounts of a conversation they had that contributed to McCabe's dismissal. It wasn't unusual for Horowitz to see his actions or his own credibility caught up in Washington's political storms, despite the apolitical reputation he has cultivated over six years on the job. Trump has disparagingly called Horowitz an "Obama guy" even as McCabe's lawyers have decried the report and investigative process as unfair. No matter the opin ion, there's no doubting the impact of the work: It helped lay the groundwork for McCabe's ring and opened him to torrential criticism by Trump and his supporters. The controversies he has endured are likely nothing compared to what awaits him in coming weeks when he announces the ndings of his review into the FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. The report will iname the debate about whether FBI actions during the campaign af fected the race's outcome. And Trump's friends and foes will inevitably scour for any nugget that can undermine his criticism of their side, and Horowitz himself. Charles McCullough, a former intelligence community inspector general who referred the Clinton emails to the FBI, said he believes Horowitz's report will be "absolutely thor ough and completely ac curate." Still, he said, Horowitz "will be in the same vortex that we were in, and you just have to manage that as best as you can because of the politics." Horowitz declined to comment, through a spokesman. The Clinton report is unquestionably Horowitz's most politically consequential case, but it's not his rst high-prole inves tigation. He spent years as a federal prosecutor in the powerful Southern District of New York as chief of its public corruption unit, where he built cases against crooked police of cers. He later served in top Justice Department roles under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Attorney Josh Berman, a close friend who has played basketball and softball with him, recalled that Horowitz had anticipated departing at the end of the Clinton administration and had packed up his ofce as chief of staff to the crimi nal division head. Yet, un expectedly, he was asked to stay on. "He is the kind of guy who plays it straight, plays it fair, doesn't let politics ... play into his decisionmaking," Berman said. President Barack Obama nominated him for inspec tor general in 2011, and he quickly dived into big scandals. Five months after he took the position came a report on the botched gun-tracking operation called Fast and Furious. It criticized individual agents and prosecutors and prompted the resignation of a top criminal division ofcial whose supporters say was unfairly maligned by Horowitz's ofce. It largely spared from direct attack then-Attorney General Eric Holder and other senior ofcials. Lawmak ers questioned whether he'd held back out of friendship, which he de nied. "The only thing that was going to make my decisions here were the facts and the law, period," Horowitz said at a 2012 hearing. His supporters note that while Horowitz was appointed inspector general by Obama, Bush had named him to the U.S. Sentencing Commission. As a watchdog in a Demo cratic administration, he sometimes enjoyed the support of congressional Republicans performing similar oversight. "He is the brain trust that we on the Hill have relied on for years," said Keith Ashdown, former Repub lican staff director for the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. "He's not just great at what he does for the Department of Justice, he has had an aggressive, important and vital role in shaping the IG community at large." As chairman of an in spector general umbrella group, he's championed the interests of fellow watchdogs. Ashdown recalled Horowitz being the rst inspector general to publicly criticize his coun terpart at the Department of Veterans Affairs after he subpoenaed a watchdog group in a move other in spectors general privately found aggressive. McCullough said Horowitz supported him during the fracas over the Clinton email referral. Robert Storch, who was hired by Horowitz and is now the National Security Agency inspector general, called him a nurturing boss who made a point to show interest in his employees despite the job's long hours and rigorous demands. "He is a marvelous lead er in that sense," Storch said. In 2015, Horowitz com plained about an Ofce of Legal Counsel opin ion that he felt interfered with his ofce's ability to obtain grand jury records, wiretap information and other data normally protected from public disclo sure. Justice Department ofcials were rankled by what they saw as Horow itz's mischaracterization of the opinion and his criticism of an under-theradar ofce. Yet Horowitz succeeded in drawing at tention to his stance and secured legislation to ensure the access he wanted. Horowitz has also been sensitive to media cover age of his ofce and pub lic perception of its work. After the Justice Depart ment disclosed anti-Trump text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and another FBI ofcial, Horowitz issued an un usual statement to make clear his ofce hadn't been consulted on whether it approved the release. Given the public and congressional interest in the FBI's handling of the Clinton case, there was probably no way Horowitz could have avoided wad ing in, McCullough said. "Once you're tasked to do it, it's the whole nine yards. You can't do it half way." The Clinton report has had practical consequences even before its release. It was Horowitz who agged the texts from Strzok, who worked on the bureau's Clinton investigation and later joined spe cial counsel Robert Mueller's team. Strzok was reassigned. And it was Horowitz's ofce that concluded McCabe hadn't been forthcoming about having authorized FBI ofcials to speak with a journalist about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation. The FBI's internal disciplinary ofce recommended McCabe's ring. Attor ney General Jeff Sessions dismissed him last month. McCabe denies mis leading anyone. His law yer, Michael Bromwich, a former inspector general himself, blamed Horowitz for severing the McCabe matter from the rest of the investigation. He says Horowitz and FBI disci plinary ofcials rushed to complete their work be fore McCabe's planned re tirement.

Page E4, THE CIVIL WAR COURIER THE CIVIL WAR COURIER the reenactment hobbyist Only $3.00 Osceola News-Gazette.108 Church Street, Kissimmee Fl 34771407-846-7600 PHILADELPHIA (AP) A preliminary examina tion of the blown jet engine of the Southwest Airlines plane that set off a terrify ing chain of events and left a businesswoman hanging half outside a shattered win dow showed evidence of "metal fatigue," according to the National Transporta tion Safety Board. Passengers scrambled to save the woman from get ting sucked out the win dow that had been smashed by debris and a registered nurse and emergency medi cal technician on the ight rushed to try to help her. She later died, and seven others were injured. The pilots of the twinengine Boeing 737 bound from New York to Dallas with 149 people aboard took it into a rapid descent Tuesday and made an emer gency landing in Philadelphia. Oxygen masks dropped from the ceiling and passengers said their prayers and braced for im pact. "I just remember holding my husband's hand, and we just prayed and prayed and prayed," said passenger Amanda Bourman, of New York. The dead woman was identied as Jennifer Rior dan, a Wells Fargo bank ex ecutive and mother of two from Albuquerque, New Mexico. The seven other victims suffered minor in juries. Retired registered nurse Peggy Phillips told WFAATV that she performed CPR on Riordan for about 20 minutes, until the plane landed in Philadelphia. She said that shortly af ter takeoff "we heard a loud noise and the plane started shaking like nothing I've ever experienced before. It sounded like the plane was coming apart, and I think we pretty quickly gured out that something hap pened with the engine." She said they started los ing altitude and the masks came down and "basically I think all of us thought this might be it." She then heard a lot of commotion a few rows behind her. "It was a lot of chaos back there a lot of really upset people and a lot of noise, and a big rush of air, a big whoosh of air," Phil lips said. After a ight attendant asked if anyone knew CPR, Phillips and an EMT lay the woman down and per formed CPR until the plane was on the ground. "If you can possibly imagine going through the window of an airplane at about 600 mph and hitting either the fuselage or the wing with your body, with your face, then I think I can probably tell you there was signicant trauma," Phillips said. The National Transpor tation Safety Board sent a team of investigators to Philadelphia and NTSB chairman Robert Sumwalt said late Tuesday that one of the engine's fan blades was separated and missing. The blade was separated at the point where it would come into the hub and there was evidence of metal fa tigue, Sumwalt said. The engine will be exam ined further to understand what caused the failure. The investigation is expected to take 12 to 15 months. Photos of the plane on the tarmac showed a miss ing window and a chunk gone from the left engine, including part of its cover. A piece of the engine cover ing was later found in Ber nville, Pennsylvania, about 70 miles (112 kilometers) west of Philadelphia, Sum walt said. As a precaution, Southwest said Tuesday night that it would inspect similar engines in its eet over the next 30 days. Passengers praised one of the pilots, Tammie Jo Shults, for her cool-headed handling of the emergency. The former Navy pilot was at the controls when the plane made the emergency landing, according to her husband, Dean Shults. She walked through the aisle and talked with passengers to make sure they were OK after the aircraft touched down. "She has nerves of steel. That lady, I applaud her," said Alfred Tumlinson, of Corpus Christi, Texas. "I'm going to send her a Christ mas card, I'm going to tell you that, with a gift certi cate for getting me on the ground. She was awesome." In a recording of conver sations between the cockpit and air trafc controllers, an unidentied female crew member reported that there was a hole in the plane and "someone went out." Tumlinson said a man in a cowboy hat rushed for ward a few rows to grab the woman and pull her back in. "She was out of the plane. He couldn't do it by himself, so another gentleman came over and helped to get her back in the plane, and they got her," he said. Southwest CEO Gary Kelly said there were no problems with the plane or its engine when it was in spected on Sunday. The jet's CFM56-7B en gines were made by CFM International, jointly owned by General Electric and Safran Aircraft Engines of France. CFM said in a statement that the CFM567B has had "an outstanding safety and reliability record" since its debut in 1997. Last year, the engine maker and the Federal Aviation Administration instructed airlines to make ultrasonic inspections of the fan blades of engines like those on the Southwest jet. The FAA said the move was prompted by a report of a fan blade failing and hurling debris. A South west spokeswoman said the engine that failed Tuesday was not covered by that di rective, but the airline an nounced it would speed up ultrasonic inspections of fan blades of its CFM56-series engines anyway. "There's a ring around the engine that is meant to con tain the engine pieces when this happens," said John Goglia, a former NTSB member. "In this case it didn't. That's going to be a big focal point for the NTSB why didn't (the ring) do its job?" In 2016, a Southwest Boeing 737-700 blew an engine as it ew from New Orleans to Orlando, Florida, and shrapnel tore a 5-by-16-inch hole just above the wing. The plane landed safely. The NTSB said a fan blade had broken off, apparently because of metal fatigue.

(AP) Free food pantries are becoming nearly as com mon as the campus bookstore at a growing number of col leges. More than 570 campus food pantries nationwide are registered with the College and University Food Bank Alliance, which formed in 2012 and helps colleges set up food pantries and other hunger programs. New York recently required that they be established at all institutions in its state university system. "You can't concentrate when you're hungry; you're irritable, you're not focusing. I did not perform well on some exams," said 47-yearold Borough of Manhattan Community College student Melanie Aucello, who is working on a college degree in hopes of improving her family's quality of life. A report published this month by a lab at the Uni versity of Wisconsin found 36 percent of 43,000 students attending twoand four-year colleges who were surveyed in 20 states had trouble get ting enough to eat, threatening the academic success that's key to overcoming pov erty. Among community col lege students alone, 42 per cent struggled to pay for bal anced meals. "We see food-insecure students devote as much time to school and homework as other students, but they also work longer hours and get less sleep," said Sara Goldrick-Rab, a Temple Universi ty sociologist and founder of the HOPE (Harvesting Op portunities for Postsecondary Education) Lab at Wisconsin. Studies, she said, have shown such students are like ly to have lower grades and graduation rates. For young students from well-to-families, spending time as a starving student scarng ramen noodles is of ten written off as a humorous rite of passage. But the demographics of typical college students are changing, and for many, hunger is a serious reality, Goldrick-Rab said. Food insecurity is related to soaring college costs, stag nant family incomes, a poor labor market for part-time workers and employment requirements that make food stamps inaccessible, Gold rick-Rab said. There are also more low-income students, sometimes with children of their own, she said. "There is no typical stu dent who's food insecure; it can impact any type of student," said Clare Cady, a Temple University ofcial who is co-founder of the College and University Food Bank Alliance. Food pantries cost little to colleges because they're typically run by volunteer students and faculty and are supported by donations of food and money. The student-run Michigan State University Student Food Bank, launched in 1993, was the rst. It buys food from a regional food bank and distributes it to more than 4,000 students and their families per year. In California, Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown in 2017 signed a law allocating $7.5 million to ght campus hunger not only for pantries, but also for other approaches, such as helping with access to public benets programs. In New York, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo said an initiative launched this spring makes New York the rst state to require food pantries to be established at all 64 institutions in the State Uni versity of New York system. About 70 percent already had them. At Schenectady County Community College, any stu dent, regardless of income, can visit up to three times a month and select three days' worth of food such as canned beans, tuna, spaghetti sauce and pasta. "It helps immensely be cause it's really difcult trying to balance school and nances, and it's difcult to work to have money for groceries while in school," 22-year-old biology major Hannah Daignault said. "We have a lot of stu dents who are low-income working parents or single people struggling to get by," said Robyn King, a college counselor who coordinates the pantry. "Some receive food stamp benets, but some make a little too much to qualify. We try to ll the gap." Monroe Community College in Rochester seeks to provide a path to longer-term solutions. Its food wagon distributes free granola bars with labels directing students to the food pantry and Single Stop, an organization that helps students apply for government benets such as food stamps, housing and childcare. "The traditional student today is older with other obligations," Monroe president Anne Kress said. "A lot of them are living in a very narrow margin between nancial security and insecu rity. What's going to connect them to nancial security is a college degree."

Thursday, April 19, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E5 JERUSALEM (AP) Is Israel a success as it turns 70? As Israelis commemo rate the milestone this week, satisfaction and a grim disquiet share the stage. It has a standard of living that rivals Western Europe, though it lacks signicant natural resources. It can boast of scientic achievements and military and technological clout beyond its modest size. It controls most of biblical Israel, and despite widespread criti cism of its policies toward the Palestinians, it has cul tivated good diplomatic ties with most of the world. But it's also a country that is weary from decades of conict with the Palestinians. It is riven by reli gious, ethnic and economic divisions. It is still seeking recognition in a region that has not fully come to terms with the presence of a Jew ish state. Its founding declaration offers it as a "light unto the nations," but it still is regu larly accused of war crimes against Palestinians, millions of whom it has con trolled for decades without the right to vote. There is no end in sight to its occu pation of the West Bank, or to its crippling blockade of Hamas-ruled Gaza. The grand peace hopes of the 1990s have mostly evaporated. Israel still feels en dangered, with well-armed adversaries calling for its destruction and no perma nent borders. Israelis are fretting over the possibility of war with archenemy Iran, which has a military pres ence in neighboring Syria. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, despite winning three elections since 2009, is reviled by many and faces corruption scandals. A look at Israel at 70:WEALTH AND ECONOMIC INEQUALITYFueled by a vibrant hightech sector, Israel's per cap ita GDP of almost $40,000 ranks with Italy and South Korea, and is within reach of Britain and France. But it also suffers from one of the highest levels of inequality in the developed world, and poverty is espe cially prevalent among its Arabs and ultra-Orthodox Jews. These two sectors, at nearly a third of the popula tion and growing, risk drag ging down the rest of the economy.PUNCHING ABOVE ITS WEIGHTFor a country of just un der 9 million, Israel has enjoyed surprising success. It counts eight living Nobel winners among its citizens and has helped give the world instant messaging, Intel chips and smart, au tonomous vehicles. Hightech units in the military have made Israel a global cybersecurity powerhouse. It is in a small club of nations to have launched a satellite, and is widely be lieved to be among an even smaller group with nuclear weapons, although the government won't conrm it. Israel has one of the world's strongest air forces. It has won European basketball championships and song contests, and hit shows like "Homeland," ''In Treatment" and "Fauda" are Israeli creations. Last year's blockbuster "Wonder Woman" the highest-grossing live-action movie directed by a woman starred Is raeli actress Gal Gadot.FORGING A NATIONAL IDENTITYDespite decades of development, Israel is still work ing at forging a national identity. Over a century ago, Zi onists in Europe saw the Jews as a nation, not just a religion. Persecution in Europe, culminating in the Holocaust, sent European Jews pouring into the Holy Land. Soon after Israel's estab lishment in 1948, they were joined by immigrants from countries like Morocco, Yemen, Iraq and Iran. These Middle Eastern, or Mizrahi, Jews had little in common with their Europe an counterparts. They were poorer, more religious and often targets of discrimination. Three generations of integration and intermar riage have blurred the distinctions, but gaps remain. Arrivals from the former Soviet Union and Ethio pia have made Israel even more diverse, yet the differ ent communities still often keep to themselves. The entire arrangement can seem an affront to the founding idea of the Jews as a nation yet it is also a rare feat that all of these have been forged into a He brew-speaking population with considerable national pride. Still, antipathy exists along cultural lines: Many Europeans, still said to account for perhaps half the Jews in Israel, cannot stand the popular Arabic-style "Mizrahi music" that in ear lier days was suppressed; Moroccan-descended Culture Minister Miri Regev once boasted she does not read Chekhov. Meanwhile, nationalist lawmakers push legislation that would dene Israel as the Jewish nation-state. These initiatives have faltered so far amid criticism that they would discriminate against the Arab mi nority of about one in ve citizens.DISAGREEMENTS OVER JUDAISMAfter 70 years, the place of Judaism in the Jewish state is unclear. Most Israelis are either secular or mildly religious. Yet the devout ultra-Ortho dox, about 10 percent of the population, wield dis proportionate inuence be cause right-wing coalitions never have been able to muster a majority without them. They have used their po litical power to shut down much of the country on Saturdays, the Jewish day of rest; obtain exemptions from compulsory military service; and gain a monopoly overseeing rituals like weddings and funerals. Their strict rules have upset the secular majority, but at tempts at change frequently result in violent protests. The issue of religion has also affected relations with U.S. Jews the largest Jewish community outside Israel and a key base of support. Israel's Orthodox establishment repeatedly has sought to prevent inroads made by the liberal streams of Judaism popular in the U.S. Last year, it blocked plans to allow egalitarian prayer at Jerusalem's West ern Wall. Such moves have created a sense that liberal American Jews are unwelcome. They also have been dis enchanted by Israeli poli cies toward the Palestin ians. American Jews tend to be liberal and support the Democratic Party, while Netanyahu boasts close ties with President Donald Trump.RELATIONS WITH ARAB WORLDAfter Israel declared in dependence, its Arab neigh bors attacked it. And even after the watershed 1967 Mideast war, in which Israel captured parts of Syria, Jordan and Egypt, the Arab world refused to engage. That began to change with the 1979 peace agreement with Egypt, Israel's rst with an Arab country. Jordan followed in 1994, after Israel reached an in terim peace deal with the Palestine Liberation Orga nization. Meanwhile, Netanyahu strengthened ties with countries like India, China and Russia. He often boasts of covert ties with moderate Arab countries presumably Saudi Arabia and other Gulf nations that share Israel's concerns about Iran. Saudi Arabia now allows ights between Israel and India to use its airspace. But without resolution of the Palestinian issue, formal relations remain elusive. PALESTINIAN ENTANGLEMENT The euphoria that accompanied the interim peace accords of the mid-1990s was short-lived. The sides established an autonomous "Palestinian Authority" with limited powers on islands of ter ritory but were never able to complete a nal deal, due to deep disagreements and repeated violence that killed thousands. Israel's re lations with the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank are poor; its relations with Gaza's militant Hamas rulers, who seized the territory from the Palestinian Au thority in 2007, are hostile. Israel has faced heavy criticism and war crimes allegations for high civilian casualties in Gaza most recently with the deaths of over two dozen Palestinians in border protests. Is rael and Hamas have fought three wars. Hamas, which is committed to Israel's destruction, has repeatedly red rockets at Israel, with Israel accusing its leaders of using civilians as cover for attacks. Despite the autonomy arrangement, Israel has ef fective control in the West Bank over 2.5 million Palestinians who are left with out voting rights, while it has expanded Jewish settle ments in the same territory. That has drawn interna tional condemnation and comparisons to apartheid in South Africa. For years, it seemed that Israel w ould agree to a Pal estinian state next door in order to preserve its status as a democracy with a Jew ish majority. But after failed talks, Israel's current hardline government opposes the very idea of negotia tions. Opponents consider this a suicidal path. If things continue this way, a fateful decision awaits: Give Palestinians citizenship in a single state, and end Israel's status as a Jewish-majority country; or maintain a two-tiered sys tem, with a disenfranchised Palestinian population that could no longer credibly claim to be a democracy.

Page E6, NEW YORK (AP) Here's some sobering news: A large international study says adults should average no more than one alcoholic drink per day, and that means drinking guidelines in many countries may be far too loose. The study found that peo ple who down more than sev en drinks a week can expect to die sooner than those who drink less. "What this is saying is, if you're really concerned about your longevity, don't have more than a drink a day," said David Jernigan, a Johns Hopkins University alcohol researcher who was not in volved in the study. While the U.S. govern ment currently recommends no more than seven drinks a week for women, the rec ommendation for men is 14 drinks. That's because earlier studies found women are hit by the effects of alcohol at lower amounts than men for several reasons, including women weigh less than men on average and blood alcohol concentrations rise faster. The new study estimates that 40-year-old men who drink as much as the current U.S. guidelines allow can ex pect to live one to two years less than men who have no more than seven drinks per week. Canada and Sweden have guidelines similar to those in the U.S. set by the Depart ment of Agriculture. Some countries have much higher ceilings. Spain and Romania set the upper limit for men at the equivalent of 20 drinks each week, for example. British guidelines were like the U.S. standards until two years ago, when U.K. health ofcials brought the recommendation for men down to the level for women. The study "is a serious wake-up call for many countries," Jeremy Pearson of the British Heart Foun dation said in a statement. The group partly funded the study, which was published Thursday by the Lancet jour nal. The research combined results from 83 studies conducted in 19 countries, track ing nearly 600,000 people who drank alcohol. The re searchers focused on who developed and died from stroke and different forms of heart disease. They made a point of excluding people who had a known history of heart problems at the time they had entered a study. About half the participants said they had more than 100 grams of alcohol a week. There's variation from country to country as to how many grams of alcohol are generally found in a standard drink. In Britain, that's about six pints of beer a week. But in the U.S., 100 grams is equivalent to what's in seven 12-ounces cans of beer, 5-ounce glasses of wine, or 1.5-ounce shots of rum, gin or other distilled spirits. The researchers found a higher risk of stroke, heart failure and other problems in that group of heavier drink ers. That may partly reect that alcohol can elevate blood pressure and alter cholesterol levels, the researchers said. Notably, the heavier drink ers were less likely to have a heart attack. But balanced against the increased risk of a stroke and other heart problems, the impact of drinking more than seven drinks a week is more bad than good, said the study's lead author, Dr. Angela Wood of the Uni versity of Cambridge in England. Like most studies, this one has aws. It's not built to make rm conclusions about cause and effect. Research that rolls together previous studies can be problematic if they aren't similar enough, though this one appears to have done a good job at over coming that obstacle and combining comparable data, Jernigan said. Researchers relied on what participants reported drinking at the start, recognizing that many people may be lowballing how much they actually down. And the study didn't account for any changes in their drinking habits. At O'Hara's Restaurant and Pub, a watering hole in lower Manhattan, one patron shrugged off the study and its recommendation. Shawn Freeman, visiting from St. Louis, said other things inuence how much he drinks, like his mood and whether he'll be driving. Another patron, Jaussi Ruotsalainen, a tourist from Finland, said he rarely drinks because he has two young kids at home. "That takes care of it," he said.

A large international study released on Thursday, April 12, 2018 says adults should average no more than one alcoholic drink per day, and that means many countries alcohol consumption guidelines may be far too loose. WASHINGTON (AP) Even as Hollywood moguls, elite journalists and top politicians have been pushed out of their jobs or resigned amid allegations of sexual misconduct, the world of medicine is more forgiving, according to an Associated Press investigation. Even when doctors are disciplined, their punishment often consists of a short suspension paired with therapy that treats sexually abusive behavior as a symptom of an illness or addiction. Decades of complaints that the physician disci plinary system is too le nient on sex-abusing doc tors have produced little change in the practices of state medical boards. And the #MeToo campaign and the rapid push in re cent months to increase accountability for sexual misconduct in American workplaces do not appear to have sparked a move ment toward changing how medical boards deal with physicians who act out sexually against patients or staffers. "There's been a failure of the medical community to take a stand against the issue," said Azza Abbudagga, a health services researcher with nonprot advocacy organization Public Citizen. She published a report recently detailing sexual misconduct among physicians. Its ndings showed of the 253 doctors reported to the National Practitio ner Data Bank for hav ing been sanctioned by their respective hospitals or health care organizations for sexual miscon duct, or paid a settlement that stemmed from such an allegation, 170 of them were not disciplined by state medical boards, even though all boards have access to the reports led with the data bank. Current guidelines from the Federation of State Physician Health Programs, which represents doctor rehab programs in 47 states, are largely silent on handling sexual mis conduct treatment and de scribe sexual harassment as a "cause of impairment" in a doctor. Programs to treat doctor impairment are inherently supposed to be "non-disciplinary," per the federation's guidelines. State-authorized programs that attempt to oversee the rehabilitation of doctors who have com mitted sexual misconduct aren't always forthcoming about their methods. In Florida, the Professional's Resource Network asked the AP to provide detailed questions and a list of sources before it would answer questions. After the AP provided the head of the program, Alexis Polles, with basic questions about the pro gram's approach to clear ing doctors for return to work after instances of sexual abuse, she declined to answer any of them. The lenience of penalties for sexually abu sive doctors sometimes a source of frustration even for members of the medical board who administer the discipline, according to Jason Rosenberg, a for mer chairman of the Flori da medical board. "This is incredibly inappropriate," Rosenberg said during one 2013 meeting when Florida's medical board allowed James Yelton-Rossello, a psychiatrist alleged to have molested jailed psychiat ric patients, to keep his license. The settlement with the Florida board of medicine did not require Yelton-Rossello to admit guilt. "You can't do this and serve french fries," Rosen berg said at that meeting, citing some fast food res taurants' policies against hiring sex offenders. "I'm ashamed of what's going on here." Yelton-Rossello's lawyer did not respond to telephone messages or an email request for com ment. In practice, even some lawyers who represent doctors nd the physi cian health programs to be problematic. David Spicer, who has represented doc tors facing medical board discipline in Florida, says the state's doctor rehabili tation program isn't well designed to evaluate or treat sexual misbehavior. The program's key com ponent, he said, is a "onesize-ts-all" requirement that doctors engage in therapy sessions and not get into trouble for a speci ed period, generally ve years. Experts in the treatment of sexual misbehavior question whether the treat ments mandated for doc tors who molest patients are even appropriate for such misconduct. "It's insufcient," said Rory Reid, a UCLA psy chology professor who studies addiction and hypersexual behavior. "We have clinical trials for everything underneath the sun," Reid said. "But there's not one clinical tri al that I'm aware of on the efcacy of treatment for doctors who have engaged in sexual misconduct."Doctors keep licenses despite sex abuse Study says limit alcohol to 1 drink a dayWhen to say when

Thursday, April 19, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E7 WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump and his allies have hit a new level of anxiety after the raid on his per sonal attorney's ofce, fearful of deeper exposure for Trump, his inner circle and his adult children and more than concerned that they don't know exactly what is in those records and electronic devices seized last week. There is also some wor ry that Michael Cohen, the self-described legal xer who helped make bad stories go away and took a leading role in Trump Or ganization projects in for eign outposts, may strike a deal with prosecutors out of concern about his own prospects. "I think it's a huge mine eld for Donald Trump and the Trump Organiza tion," said trial attorney Joseph Cammarata, who represented Paula Jones in her sexual harassment suit against President Bill Clinton. "I think this is on its own track and this train is coming down the track with brute force." The wild legal show continued to play out Monday, at a court hear ing in New York before a federal judge who is considering what to do with the material that the FBI seized from Cohen. The scene was punctu ated by dramatic entrances and revelations. Stormy Daniels the porn ac tress who alleged she had a sexual affair with the president made an ap pearance, stumbling on her high heels as she was swarmed by press. Cohen was forced to reveal that another one of his clients is Fox News host Sean Hannity, a high-prole condant of the president. Trump left the White House for Florida, for a two-day summit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the president's Mar-a-Lago estate. Advisers are hoping the meeting will draw atten tion from the legal tempest in Washington and New York. On the trip south, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders sought to put distance be tween Trump and Cohen, saying: "I believe they've still got some ongoing things, but the president has a large number of at torneys, as you know." The federal raid, carried out a week ago in New York City, sought bank records, information on Cohen's dealing in the taxi industry, Cohen's communications with the Trump campaign and information on payments he made in 2016 to former Playboy model Karen McDougal and to Daniels, both of whom allege relationships with Trump. The court proceedings Monday dealt with who gets to look at Cohen's seized documents and devices before they are turned over to prosecu tors. Though Cohen once said he "would take a bullet" for Trump, he is aware of the possible outcome including potential prison time and has expressed worry about his family, said a person who has spo ken to the lawyer in recent days but is not authorized to discuss private conver sations. Cohen has not been charged with any thing. Trump's moods have grown darker in recent days, as he lashes out at the "overreach" of the raid. Further angering the president is that the raid was triggered in part by a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into Russian inter ference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The raid was authorized by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. On Twitter Sunday, Trump said that all law yers are now "deated and concerned" by the FBI raid on Cohen, adding that "At torney Client privilege is now a thing of the past." Trump has also taken to downplaying Cohen's role. The president also inveighed further against former FBI Director James Comey, who said Monday morning that Trump was morally unt to be presi dent. That was a few hours after Comey said the same and worse in a highly pro moted ABC interview. Many in the White House view the after shocks of the Cohen raid as potentially more threat ening than Mueller's Rus sia probe, fearful of what skeletons may be in the lawyer's closets, according to ve ofcials and outside allies who all spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations. "I agree with the con sensus forming that it's very dangerous for the president, probably the most serious thing yet," said Sol Wisenberg, a de fense attorney who was a deputy independent counsel during the Starr special counsel investigation into Clinton. "Even if you shut Mueller down some way, how do you shut down the Southern District (federal court)?" Trump's anger at the probe has intensied, with him musing publicly about ring Mueller and the man who authorized the probe, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Those around Trump have hoped that this week's visit to Mar-a-Lago, where he is generally happier, along with the tightly sched uled summit with Abe, would somewhat distract him from Cohen and from Comey's ongoing publicity tour. But White House aides have also expressed wor ry that they can control Trump less at his palatial Florida estate, where he is known to seek out counsel from club members and get revved up by their at-times provocative advice. One recent presidential dinner guest was Hannity, a longtime Trump ally whose connection to Cohen shed more light on the attorney who was more than just a lawyer for Trump. Cohen has long been a key power center in the Trump Organization and a xture along the edges of Trump's nascent political life. In Cohen's own es timation, he is Trump's Ray Donovan, the bruising television character who takes whatever steps are needed to x problems for the tycoon he serves. He has regularly threatened lawsuits against those who pose a chal lenge to Trump. He has be rated reporters for writing unattering words about his boss. He has worked with tabloids, including the National Enquirer, to kill unfavorable stories about Trump. He has said he used a home-equity loan to nance a $130,000 payment to Daniels in the nal days of the 2016 campaign and did so without Trump's knowledge. The president has con sistently denied a relation ship with Daniels, who claims the two had sex not long after rst lady Melania Trump gave birth to the couple's son Barron. He has also pushed back against other claims from women. A recent Trump fund raising email praised Mrs. Trump, with the president calling her "my rock and foundation."

Ambassador Nikki Haley's weekend announcement that new economic sanctions against Russia are imminent, but stressed the penalties are still being considered. Haley created a restorm Sunday when she said the new sanctions would be imposed by the Treasury De partment on Monday, when, in fact, no such announce ment was planned, according to two ofcials familiar with the matter. In a statement, White House press secretary Sar ah Huckabee Sanders tried to clarify the situation, but her explanation created more confusion and led to suggestions that President Donald Trump had person ally intervened to halt the sanctions from taking effect Monday. "We are considering ad ditional sanctions on Russia and a decision will be made in the near future," Sanders said in a statement. The two ofcials, who were not authorized to dis cuss private administration deliberations publicly and spoke on condition of ano nymity, said Haley had misspoken when she said on CBS' "Face the Nation" that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin would announce the sanctions Monday "if he hasn't already." Haley said the sanctions would target those who are enabling Syr ian leader Bashar Assad's government to continue us ing chemical weapons. The two ofcials said the administration had no plans to announce Syriarelated sanctions on Russia this week, although they noted that two entities were hit with such penalties last month in a largely over looked portion of a sanc tions package that dealt mainly with Russian inter ference in the 2016 presi dential election and hack ing. After Haley's comments, some in the administration suggested the sanc tions now being considered could be rolled out Monday. But others said it would be wiser and more effective to wait for a period longer than three days after the U.S., British and French infuriated Russia with their missile strikes on Syria on Friday. The ofcials could not say when the new sanctions would be announced. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump continued to hail the missile attack as perfectly carried out. Trump tweeted "Mission Accomplished" on Satur day after U.S., French and British warplanes and ships launched more than 100 missiles nearly unopposed by Syrian air defenses. While he declared success, the Pentagon said the pum meling of three chemicalrelated facilities left enough others intact to enable the Assad government to use banned weapons against ci vilians if it chooses. Trump's choice of words recalled a similar claim as sociated with President George W. Bush following the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May 2003 alongside a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it became ap parent that Iraqis had or ganized an insurgency that would tie down U.S. forces for years. Later Sunday, Trump sent a letter to congressional leaders informing them in writing of his decision to order the strike. Under the War Powers Resolution, the president must keep Con gress informed of such ac tions. The nighttime assault on Syria was carefully limited to minimize civilian casual ties and avoid direct conict with Russia, but confusion arose over the extent to which Washington warned Moscow it was coming. The Pentagon said it gave no explicit warning. The U.S. ambassador in Moscow, Jon Huntsman, said in a video, "Before we took action, the United States communicated with" Russia to "reduce the danger of any Russian or civilian casualties."

Page E8, LOS ANGELES (AP) When a torrent of mud crashed through Mari Mitchel's bedroom in Southern California three months ago, it car ried away everything from massive pieces of antique family furniture to a tiny pouch that held her wedding and engagement rings and a beloved pendant. As the days turned into weeks and the weeks into months, Mitchel had near ly lost all hope she would ever see her most treasured jewelry again. But on April 3, the 65-year-old Mitchel got what she calls her "tiny miracle." The pouch lled with her jewelry was plucked from a 6-foot (2-meter) pile of mud down the street from her house. "My knees were shak ing, and I was oh-my-gos hing and jumping up and down," Mitchel said. "I cried tears of joy, disbelief and thorough happiness." Months after the Jan. 9 mudslides killed at least 21 people and nearly wiped the small commu nity of Montecito off the map, those who survived are still looking for and nding their belongings in the deep and hardened sludge. They lost loved ones, neighbors and houses in the catastrophe, which still looks like it happened yesterday. Two children remain missing. Through the shock and the misery, a Facebook page called Montecito Di saster Lost & Found has become a ray of hope for many, a tiny bit of good amid a whole lot of heart ache. Started a couple of days after the tragedy, the page has connected hundreds of lost items with their owners everything from old family photos and wedding veils to a 400-pound (180-kilogram) hippo statue. Items still unclaimed on the site include signed NFL helmets, a WWII canteen, a trumpet, an intact teacup and a wed ding photo from the early 1900s. Last week, Santa Bar bara resident Sarah Eg lin made one of the more incredible nds as she walked along a Montecito trail with her children. It was a zipped-up bag covered in mud, with just a touch of lace sticking out. It turned out to be a wed ding veil and the under skirt of a wedding dress. Eglin posted the nd on the Facebook page and two days later, Montecito resi dent Karen MacDonald responded that they were hers; they had been swept away along with MacDon ald's entire house. "The thing that's sur prising is it's been three months since the catastro phe, and you wouldn't ex pect stuff to still be turning up," said the 63-year-old MacDonald, who wore the veil and underskirt at her wedding 35 years ago. They had been packed away ever since, perhaps waiting for the day when one of her two daughters decided to marry. The veil and underskirt are among only a handful of items the family has recovered. "We treasure and we take comfort in what we've got because we lost so much," MacDonald said. "It offers some consolation." Santa Barbara resident Amanda Hockham found a massive hippo statue in February while volunteer ing with a group called the Bucket Brigade, which helps clear mud from peo ple's homes. The hippo was missing one leg, lying on its side and caked in mud. Hockham immediately took to the Facebook page: "Anyone missing a hippo?" she posted. Soon enough, the 55-year-old Hockham connected with the owner, who had been desperate to nd the statue. It had sen timental value because it was a gift to her late husband. Using heavy equipment and a hoist, volunteers res cued the hippo, cleaned it with a power washer, and tted it with a stump as a prosthetic leg nearly completely restoring the statue to its former glory. "A lot of people have absolutely nothing left," Hockham said. "If we can go nd something any thing and give it back, it feels really good." Finding such personal items can be an impor tant part of psychological recovery in the wake of a traumatic event, said Ju dith Fox, a professor and director of the University of Denver's International Disaster Psychology Program. "They really are sym bols of the life that they've led and one's life with one's family," Fox said. "For most people those are pretty important symbols, and to have that all wiped away is extremely trau matic." Erin Doherty, who lives near Montecito in Santa Barbara, said she began the Facebook page after nding blue diamond ear rings inside a pouch in a massive pile of debris while she was walking on the beach. She put a photo of the earrings on Facebook in a post that was shared more than 10,000 times. It turned out the earrings belonged to a woman who died in the disaster with her husband after their home was swept away. Doherty returned the earrings to the woman's tearful and grateful daugh ter and realized it was just the beginning. "I thought, 'This is go ing to become a big prob lem,'" said Doherty, who also ended up nding the Boy Scout uniform of a 17-year-old who's still missing. After cleaning it, she gave the uniform back to his mother. "Everything was at the mercy of the mud," Doherty said. "It's abso lutely impossible to com prehend the force of this thing until you've been there. You'll be walking through some trees, and you look 20 feet (6 meters) up, and there's somebody's hair dryer tangled up in the branches. "This thing was a beast," she said. Mitchel, the woman who recently recovered her jewelry, barely escaped the disaster with her own life. She and her husband were standing in their bedroom in the middle of the night when it hit. They had been awoken by a loud boom and the noise of the impending mudslide.

The initiative, though it backred, was in line with the company's longstanding effort to project a progressive and inclusive image. The company is now through the looking glass, trying to tamp down a ra cially charged uproar over the arrest of two black men at one of its stores in Philadelphia. How could Starbucks, which once urged its employees to start conversations about race with customers, now be under re for its treatment of black people? The episode highlights the risks large corporations run when they tie their brands so closely to social messaging. In 2015, then-CEO Howard Schultz shrugged off the "Race Together" asco as a wellintentioned mistake and pressed on with his public efforts to engage in the de bate over race in America. His successor, Kevin Johnson, is now scrambling to keep the Philadelphia incident from shattering the message Schultz was going for: Starbucks is a corporation that stands for something beyond prot. "The more your brand is trying to connect emotionally to people, the more hurt people feel when these kinds of things hap pen," said Jacinta Gauda, the head of the Gauda Group, a New York strategic communications rm afliated with the Grayling network. "They are breaking a promise. That's what makes it hurt deeper." Beyond racial relations, Starbucks has staked much of its brand on its dual promise of providing good customer service and treating its employees well, said John Gordon, a restaurant industry analyst with Pacic Management Consulting Group. The Se attle company has a repu tation for well-managed stores, "a point of differ ence that allows them to sell primarily drinks and coffees that have a higher cost," he said. But in a multinational company with more than 28,000 stores worldwide, there has "to be a situation every day where some hu man being handles things wrong. You can't have that many employees and not have something stu pid happen," Gordon said. "Even with a huge operations manual that lays out what to say and what to do, you can't cover every thing." Still, Starbucks has set its own high bar. Last month, the compa ny claimed it had achieved 100 percent pay equity across gender and race for all its U.S. employees and committed to doing the same for its overseas operations, an initiative publicly backed by equality activist Billie Jean King. The company also touts the diversity of its workforce, saying minorities comprise more than 40 percent of its employees in the U.S. In 2016, Starbucks promised to invest in 15 "underserved" communities across the country, trying to counter an image of a company catering to a mostly white clientele. One of those stores opened in Ferguson, Missouri, the scene of the 2014 protests that erupted following the police shooting of Michael Brown, one of several such killings that moved Schultz to launch the Race To gether campaign. Those efforts are in stark contrast to the video that went viral over the week end showing the two black men being arrested by police who were called by an employee. Ofcials have said police ofcers were told the men had asked to use the store's restroom but were denied because they hadn't bought anything and they refused to leave. A Starbucks spokeswoman said Tuesday that the em ployee no longer works at the store, but declined to give further details. On Monday, about two dozen protesters took over the Philadelphia shop, chanting slogans like, "A whole lot of rac ism, a whole lot of crap, Starbucks coffee is antiblack." The hashtag #Boy cottStarbucks trended on Twitter. Johnson, who called has called the arrests "rep rehensible," arrived in Philadelphia this weekend to personally confront the crisis. He met with the two men Monday, the company's spokeswoman said. Johnson also promised to revamp store management training to include "unconscious-bias" training. "I watched the video, which was hard to watch. That is not what Starbucks is about. That is not repre sentative of our mission, our values and our guiding principles," Johnson said. Gauda, who has developed workplace inclusion and diversity strategies for corporate clients, cau tioned that any uncon scious-bias training should not be treated as "special subject" but incorporated as a core part of its employee training. She warned Starbucks against treating Philadelphia as a one-off affair, urging the company to investigate whether there were any warning signs. "I would suspect that this particular issue is something that has oc curred before," Gauda said. "The company is in crisis mode now, but they should not look at this as an isolated issue." Gauda and other cor porate communications experts said they were im pressed that Johnson immediately took a hands-on approach to addressing the crisis, saying his efforts would pay off in an age where corporations are under the glare of social me dia. "I'm actually surprised he is handling it the way a CEO should be handling it. He went in head rst and he took the blame for it," said M.J. McCallum, vice president and creative director of Muse Commu nications, an advertising and communications agency with an African-Amer ican focus. "I denitely applaud that. Most people won't jump on the bomb." "Starbucks has a great reputation. They stand for a better culture. They have stores in inner cities," Mc Callum said. "I think he realizes what this one inci dent can do for his brand."

AroundOsceola.com BEIRUT (AP) Inter national inspectors have en tered the Syrian town where an alleged chemical attack was carried out earlier this month, Syrian state media reported Tuesday, after they had waited for days in the capital for permission from Syrian and Russian authorities. The fact-nding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemi cal Weapons is investigat ing reports that government forces launched an April 7 chemical attack in the nal stages of their ght to retake the town of Douma from rebels. The alleged gas attack, which Syrian activ ists say killed more than 40 people, prompted punitive U.S., British and French airstrikes. Syria and its ally Russia deny any chemical attack took place, and Russian of cials have accused Britain of staging a "fake" chemical attack. British Prime Minis ter Theresa May says Syria and Russia whose forces now control the town east of Damascus are trying to cover up evidence. Journalists were allowed access to the suspected at tack sites on Monday, but the OPCW said Syrian and Russian authorities blocked the inspectors. The Associated Press spoke to survivors and witnesses who described being hit by gas. Several said a strange smell start ed spreading and people screamed, "It's chlorine! It's chlorine!" The U.S. and France say they have evidence that Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces used poison gas in the attack, but they have not provided any evidence, even after Saturday's punitive missile strikes. Douma was the last rebelheld town near Damascus, and the target of a govern ment offensive in February and March that killed hun dreds of people and dis placed tens of thousands. Hours after the alleged chemical attack, the rebel faction that controlled the town, the Army of Islam, relented and was evacuated along with thousands of residents. The site visit came hours after reports of more inter national air strikes on Syr ian military installations. The Syrian military later said a false alarm set off air defense systems early Tues day, retracting earlier reports of a pre-dawn "outside aggression" on its airelds in the central Homs region and a suburb of Damascus. The Pentagon denied any American military activity in the area. There was no comment from Israel, which frequently carries out airstrikes in Syria but rarely acknowledges them. Explosions were heard in the areas of the two bases, according to the Britainbased Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the conict through a network of sources inside the country. But it said no missiles landed in side the bases. Earlier this month, four Iranian military personnel were killed in an airstrike on Syria's T4 air base, also in Homs. Syria and its main allies Iran and Russia blamed Israel for that attack. Israel did not conrm or deny the allegations. The lack of access to Douma has left unanswered questions about the attack earlier this month. OPCW Director-General Ahmet Uzumcu said Syrian and Russian ofcials cited "pending security issues" in keeping its inspectors from reaching Douma. "The team has not yet de ployed to Douma," Uzumcu told an executive council meeting of the OPCW in The Hague on Monday. Instead, Syrian authori ties offered them 22 people to interview as witnesses, he said, adding that he hoped "all necessary arrangements will be made ... to allow the team to deploy to Douma as soon as possible." Earlier Monday, Russian Deputy Foreign Min ister Sergei Ryabkov said the inspectors could not go to the site because they needed approval from the U.N. Department for Safety and Security. He denied that Russia was hampering the mission and suggested the approval was held up because of the Western air strikes. However, U.N. spokes man Stephane Dujarric said the United Nations had provided all the necessary clearances for the team to visit Douma. On Monday, the AP visit ed a two-room underground shelter where Khaled Mahmoud Nuseir said 47 peo ple were killed, including his pregnant wife and two daughters, 18-month-old Qamar and 2 1/2-year-old Nour. A strange smell lin gered, nine days after the attack. Nuseir, 25, said he ran from the shelter to a nearby clinic and fainted. After he was revived, he returned to the shelter and found his wife and daughters dead, with foam coming from their mouths. He and two other resi dents accused the rebel Army of Islam of carry ing out the attack. As they spoke, government troops were nearby but out of ear shot. Nuseir said a cylin der was found leaking the poison gas, adding that he didn't think it was dropped from the air because it still looked intact. Separately, the AP spoke to a medic who was among those who later were evacu ated to northern Syria. Ahmed Abed al-Nafaa said helicopters were ying be fore the attack and when he reached the site, people were screaming "chlorine." He said he tried to enter the shelter but was over come by a strong smell of chlorine and his comrades pulled him out.

Faisal Mekdad, Syrias deputy foreign minister, said on Monday that his country is fully ready to cooperate with the fact-finding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons thats in Syria to investigate the alleged chemical attack that triggered U.S.-led airstrikes. Chemical weapons inspectors reach Syrian townFor some, MLB's Puerto Rico trip is a homecomingGURABO, Puerto Rico (AP) Cleveland star Francisco Lindor held a baseball in his hand, ready to pitch, and asked the young boy standing at home plate if he knew how to swing a bat. The kid said no. The kid might have been bbing. Lindor's soft-toss pitch became a line drive, and the kid at Escuela Villa Marina the same grammar school that Lin dor attended years ago looked at the All-Star shortstop and grinned as onlookers applauded. "This is what it's about," Lindor said. Cleveland and Minne sota are in Puerto Rico to play a two-game series in San Juan starting Tuesday night. But the Indians and Twins also know they're serving a larger purpose on this trip, which is why many of the players from both teams ventured out among the Puerto Rican people Monday to give back to an island that was robbed of so much by Hur ricane Maria last Septem ber. Lindor went back to his rst school in Gurabo, his hometown. Minnesota's Jose Berrios, who will start on the mound for the Twins in his homeland on Wednesday night, visited a children's hospital in San Juan and was anked by many of his team mates. Twins outelder Eddie Rosario, like Lin dor, also went home he was headlining a clinic in Guayama, the city where he grew up. "It's an honor. It's a privilege," Lindor said at the school where some local residents were stand ing outside the chain-link fence more than an hour before he arrived, hoping to just catch a glimpse of Gurabo's favorite son. "I'm blessed to be here. It's a dream and I'm excited. Stuff like that is something I always wanted to do. As soon as I was a profession al baseball player, I always wanted to come back and do something like this spe cial for the kids not for me, for the kids, for the community." Berrios knows exactly what Lindor is feeling. On Wednesday night, the right-hander from Bay amon located just south of San Juan is expect ed to become the second Puerto Rican pitcher to start a regular-season bigleague game at Hiram Bithorn Stadium. Javier Vazquez started four in 2003, when the park was used as an alternate home eld by the Montreal Expos. "It's emotional," Ber rios said. "I feel it already. The stadium where we're playing, Roberto Clemente played there. My dad watched him play there. Growing up, I watched baseball there. And now we're going to play there." Part of this trip is about giving, and the Indi ans elected to give a full playoff share, roughly $37,000, from last season to causes in Puerto Rico. Some of that money is go ing to the Nuestra Escuela school, which was hit hard by Hurricane Maria. The wives of Indians players collaborated on a separate donation as well. "Absolutely honored," said Ana Yris Gusman Torres, the school's principal, as she clutched the check that was brought in an Indians envelope. "We will make the best use of it that we can." Much more is coming over the next couple days on the donation fronts. Tuesday, a cargo van and truck that will serve as mobile response units nanced by MLB will be delivered, both ve hicles outtted and loaded with supplies to assist in the ongoing home-repair and construction efforts in Puerto Rico. Wednesday, another check from MLB will be delivered to give more than 2,000 Little League players new uni forms and apparel, as well as a donation from the MLB Players Association and Players Trust to Feed ing America. "Sports, it's underrated," former big-league great Bobby Bonilla, who was born in New York but is of Puerto Rican descent, said as he watched Lindor interact with hundreds of kids with a tattered blue tarp blowing off one roof in the distance. "Sports heals. Big time." Hiram Bithorn has host ed about four dozen MLB regular-season games over the last two decades. There was a Texas-To ronto game in 2001, then 43 more in the 2003 and 2004 seasons when the Ex pos relocated there on occasion, and a three-game set between the then-Flor ida Marlins and the New York Mets in 2010. The Marlins and Pittsburgh were to play a two-game series in San Juan in honor of Roberto Clemente Day in 2016, but the games were relocated to Miami over concerns about the Zika virus. But the scene Tuesday night is expected to just be different. "Extremely emotional," Lindor said. "It's some thing that I don't take for granted. Take in ev ery little second of it. I'm blessed. I'm blessed to see how everything's coming along ... it's a dream come true."

CITIZEN TRIBUNE SportsEEE-2 Monday, April 16, 2018 BY PETE IACOBELLI AP Sports WriterHunter Renfrow cant walk anywhere around Clemson without the same topic quickly coming up: Whats happening at quarterback? Its all people want to know about, all the time, said the Tigers senior receiver. Thats an odd situation for Clemson given it returns a starter in Kelly Bryant who led the team to 12 wins, its third straight Atlantic Coast Conference championship and another spot in the College Football Playoff. The excitement is all about long-haired freshman Trevor Lawrence, the top high-school quarterback in last years recruiting cycle according to ESPN who enrolled early at Clemson and has excited coaches and teammates with his ability. And Lawrence put on a show Saturday for rabid fans with a perfectly thrown 50-yard TD pass to receiver Tee Higgins in Clemsons spring game. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said the 6-foot-6 Lawrence who some have dubbed Sunshine after South Carolinas long-haired quarterback Ronnie Bass as depicted in Remember The Titans has all the tools of former Clemson star Deshaun Watson but is more physically developed as a freshman. Its a package of power and panache that has many Clemson fans swooning for more national titles and discarding Bryants one stellar year. Everyone, perhaps, except for Swinney and Bryant. Swinney said therell be no earth-shaking, upcoming pronouncement about Clemsons starting quarterback. Its Bryant. Hes the returning starter for us. He started 14 games. Thats where we are, Swinney said. Unless something changes, then theres an announcement. But other than that theres no announcement to make. Bryant understood what was coming this spring and pledged to work hard to improve his game and keep Clemson on top. Everybody wants to write me off, Bryant said. But Im still here and I aint going nowhere. Clemson fans had grown accustomed to fast-paced offenses led by dynamic, passing quarterbacks since 2011. Tajh Boyd set records as the Tigers starter from 2011-13 before the strong-armed Watson came in and, after an injury plagued freshman season, passed Clemson to a 28-2 mark in 2015 and 2016, two ACC titles and the national championship his nal year. Bryant led more a run-based attack and was sometimes criticized for misres when passing. Clemsons total yards of 6,014 were lower than all but one of the last seven seasons. Its 3,297 yards passing was the fewest since 2010. The Tigers 17 touchdown passes were also their lowest in seven years. Part of last year, Swinney said, was having so many rst-year starters on offense after playmakers like Watson, receivers Mike Williams and Artavis Scott, tailback Wayne Gallman and tight end Jordan Leggett left for the NFL. There was a learning curve all the rst-timers, like Bryant, had to battle. This spring, the offense has worked on increasing tempo and with Bryant in charge have regularly gotten the better of Clemsons experienced defense. That doesnt mean coaches have not been wowed by Lawrences star power. The freshman broke Watsons Georgia state prep records for career yardage (13,908) and touchdowns (161). Those numbers, his winning (55-2 record at Cartersville High) and even the hair have captivated fan imaginations, cooffensive coordinator Tony Elliott said. I think with what he was able to accomplish as a high school play, just the winning, how he put his team on his back, Elliot said. Lawrence won the spring game stats battle, completing 11 of 16 passes for 122 yards Bryant threw for 35 yards on 8-of15 passing. Clemsons faced spring drama in the quarterback spot before. Before Watsons freshman year, senior Cole Stoudt and sophomore Chad Kelly were ghting for the starting spot after Boyds departure and seeing rsthand how talented Watson was. But Kelly snapped at the coaches on the sidelines during the spring game, and then two days later was dismissed from the team. Stoudt opened the year as the starter, but was surpassed by Watson in week three at Florida State. Swinney does not want a similar back-and-forth this offseason. Weve got a starter right now, he said. Kellys our starter. PITTSBURGH (AP) James Harrison is taking another shot at retirement, and this time its likely to stick for the longtime Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker. The ve-time Pro Bowler, two-time All Pro and 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year announced on Instagram early Monday he is stepping away from the game following a 15year career that saw him go from undrafted free agent to one of the most feared players in the league. Harrison, 39, posted a collage of pictures of his two sons and noted hes missed way too much for way too long ... and Im done. Harrison played nearly his entire career with the Steelers, collecting 80.5 of his 84.5 career sacks while wearing black and gold, a franchise record. He spent the 2013 season in Cincinnati and signed with New England late last season, appearing in all three playoff games for the Patriots, including their Super Bowl loss to Philadelphia. This is the second time Harrison has called it quits. He retired briey in September 2014 only to be lured back to the Steelers. He remained productive into his late 30s, registering at least ve sacks from 2014-16. Not bad for a player who went undrafted after graduating from Kent State and spent the early portion of his career primarily on special teams. Harrison compensated for his relative lack of height hes listed at 6-feet tall with remarkable strength and a relentlessness that made him one of the best edge rushers in the league and a vital part of a team that reached the Super Bowl three times from 2005-10, winning it twice. His 100-yard interception return for a touchdown on the nal play of the rst half of the 2009 Super Bowl is one of the most iconic in NFL history. Harrisons physical play at times ran him into trouble with the league ofce. He was ned four times during the 2010 season alone for what the NFL considered illegal or unnecessary hits. Harrison lashed out at commissioner Roger Goodell, calling him a crook in a 2011 magazine article. Harrison twice left the Steelers. He signed a deal with Cincinnati in the spring of 2013 but played only sparingly, leading him to retire in the fall of 2014. It lasted all of 18 days. He returned to Pittsburgh after injuries decimated the teams linebacker group and in his second act became a valuable leader on the eld and elsewhere, often including teammates in his draining (and well-documented) offseason workout regiments in Arizona. At a position where few last into their mid-30s, Harrison continued to thrive. He nished among the top three on the team in sacks every year from 201416, and his pressure forced a hold by Kansas City left tackle Eric Fisher that negated the tying twopoint conversion by the Chiefs in the divisional round of the 2016 playoffs. Harrison signed a two-year deal last spring that would have kept him in Pittsburgh through his 40th birthday. He played sparingly for much of 2017 and the Steelers granted him his release in December. The Patriots quickly scooped him up. He had two sacks in his debut with New England in the 2017 regular-season nale and added seven more tackles in the playoffs.Longtime Steelers linebacker James Harrison retires again DALLAS (AP) While speculation abounds regarding which Dallas Cowboys captains played a role in Dez Bryants departure as the receiver alluded to in an interview with the NFL Network on Friday, quarterback Dak Prescott denied any involvement and expressed sadness over the receivers departure. Obviously its sad news, said Prescott, speaking at the Albertsons and Tom Thumb Dak Prescott Womens Clinic at Parish Episcopal School on Saturday night. That is a brother to me. Put the football stuff beyond you, what he meant to me as a person, what he meant to me as a brother, its tough to see him gone. It shows you its a business. It motivates me. And it puts all this in perspective. Just got to go to work. Prescott has already heard that Bryant pointed the nger at the team captains for playing a role in his departure. As much you want to say yeah I want a say so those guys get paid a lot more than me, Prescott said. That is what those guys are there to do. That is not my decision. I am sure [Bryant] is hearing stuff, Prescott continued. I am sure he is getting it from a lot of different ways. So I am not going to nger point at anybody. Im not going to get upset about who he is pointing at or who he thinks did this. As I said, its a business and thats part of it. Prescott said Bryant will be missed and the Cowboys have to gure out how to replace him. But he said his focus is on getting better at his job. He was a great player, Prescott said. He did a lot of great things for us. He was a guy in man-to-man you go to. At this point, we got to gure that out with the guys we got. I am sure we are going to go after guys in the draft and free agency. Who knows? All I can do is to continue to get better at my job and do the best I can do. Free agent signees Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson will be a big part of the teams plans to replace Bryant, as will a receiver in the draft. The Cowboys are focused on taking one in the rst or second round. We have thrown. I have thrown with Hurns, Prescott said when asked about the new receivers. Deonte is on his way. We have communicated. We will see. We will gure it out. Dez is going to be a hard guy to replace. He is a talented guy. So he will be missed. Prescott has been a part of a group of 50 Cowboys who have been working out on their own for the last two months. He is excited about Mondays start of the offseason program as the Cowboys ofcially begin life without Bryant.Cowboys Prescott sad to see Bryant go, says he had no part in decision Bryant Clemsons starter, but rising Lawrence making waves APIn this Nov. 30, 2017 file photo, then-Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (88) catches a pass for a touchdown over Washington Redskins cornerback Bashaud Breeland (26) in Arlington, Texas.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) The White House says a decision on new economic sanctions against Russia will be made soon not committing to an an nouncement Monday that U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley had said to expect. In a statement, White House press secretary Sar ah Huckabee Sanders said: "We are considering ad ditional sanctions on Rus sia and a decision will be made in the near future." Haley had said Sunday that new sanctions were coming against Russia for enabling the government of Syrian leader Bashar Assad to continue using chemical weapons. She said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin "will be announcing those on Monday, if he hasn't al ready." She said Russia has blocked six attempts by the U.N. Security Council to make it easier to inves tigate the use of chemical weapons. "Everyone is going to feel it at this point," Haley said, warning of conse quences for Assad's for eign allies. "The fact he was making this more nor mal and that Russia was covering this up, all that has got to stop." President Donald Trump on Sunday said a U.S.-led missile attack on Syria's chemical weapons program was "perfectly car ried out." Trump tweeted "Mission Accomplished" on Sat urday after U.S., French and British warplanes and ships launched more than 100 missiles nearly unopposed by Syrian air de fenses. While he declared success, the Pentagon said the pummeling of three chemical-related facilities left enough others intact to enable the Assad government to use banned weapons against civilians if it chooses. His choice of words re called a similar claim as sociated with President George W. Bush follow ing the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May 2003 alongside a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that would tie down U.S. forces for years. Later Sunday, Trump sent a letter to congressional leaders informing them in writing of his decision to order the strike. Under the War Powers Resolution, the president must keep Congress informed of such actions. Haley made clear the United States won't be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying U.S. involvement there "is not done." Haley said the three U.S. goals for accomplishing its mission are making sure chemical weapons are not used in a way that could harm U.S. national inter ests, defeating the Islamic State group and having a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing. "We're not going to leave until we know we've ac complished those things," she said. Haley said the joint mili tary strike "put a heavy blow into their chemical weapons program, setting them back years" and re iterated that if Assad uses poison gas again, "the United States is locked and loaded." French President Em manuel Macron said Sunday that France wants to launch a diplomatic initia tive over Syria that would include Western powers, Russia and Turkey. Speaking on French television BFM and online site Mediapart, Macron stressed that the French diplomacy is able to talk with Iran, Rus sia and Turkey on one side and to the United States on the other side. He said, "Ten days ago, President Trump wanted to withdraw from Syria. We convinced him to remain." Sanders asserted that Trump's plans for the region have not changed. In a statement, she said "he wants U.S. forces to come home as quickly as pos sible." The nighttime assault on Syria was carefully lim ited to minimize civilian casualties and avoid direct conict with Russia, but confusion arose over the extent to which Washing ton warned Moscow it was coming. The Pentagon said it gave no explicit warning. The U.S. ambassador in Moscow, John Huntsman, said in a video, "Before we took action, the Unit ed States communicated with" Russia to "reduce the danger of any Russian or civilian casualties." Russia has military forc es, including air defenses, in several areas of Syria to support Assad in his long war against anti-government rebels. Assad denies he has used chemical weapons, and the Trump administration has yet to present hard evi dence of what it says pre cipitated the allied missiles attack: a chlorine gas at tack on civilians in Douma on April 7. The U.S. says it suspects that sarin gas also was used. The strikes "success fully hit every target," said Dana W. White, the chief Pentagon spokeswoman. The military said there were three targets: the Barzah chemical weapons research and development site in the Damascus area, a chemical weapons stor age facility near Homs and a chemical weapons "bun ker" a few miles from the second target. Although ofcials said the singular target was Assad's chemical weapons capability, his air force, including helicopters he allegedly has used to drop chemical weapons on civil ians, were spared. In a U.S. military action a year ago in response to a sarin gas attack, missiles took out nearly 20 percent of the Syrian air force, the Penta gon said.

Trump struck back, branding Comey a criminal. Their war of words esca lated Monday after Comey, in an ABC interview broadcast the night before, labelled Trump "morally unt" for ofce. Trump tweeted that Comey drafted an exoneration of Hillary Clinton long before he talked to her as part of an investiga tion into her email prac tices. He labelled Comey "disgruntled" and accused him and allies of having "committed many crimes." For his part, Comey has said that nine or 10 months into the Clinton probe, he had a "clear picture" where it was going and it's com mon to draft statements before an investigation is complete. Comey's remarks, coupled with the release of his forthcoming book, offer his version of events sur rounding his ring and the investigations into Rus sian election meddling and Clinton's email practices. Several of the episodes he describes in detail, includ ing a private conversation about former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, are central to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and his recollections are presumably valuable for prosecutors examining whether the president's actions constitute obstruc tion of justice. The ex-FBI director, who until his ring in May led an investigation into possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign, acknowledged that it was "stunning" to think that Russia could have damaging information about a U.S. presi dent. But he said that in Trump's case, he could not discount the possibility that the president had been compromised. "These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible," Comey told ABC News' chief anchor George Stephanopoulos. He also acknowledged he had no proof that Russia has dirt on Trump: "I think it's pos sible. I don't know." He also answered "pos sibly" when asked if the president was attempting to obstruct justice when he cleared the Oval Ofce of other ofcials in February 2017 before encouraging him to close the investi gation into Flynn, who by that point was suspected of lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts. The retired general pleaded guilty in December and is now cooperating with Mueller's investigation. Comey also said he believed Trump treated women like "pieces of meat." "A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they're pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American peo ple believe it that per son's not t to be president of the United States, on moral grounds," Comey said. Trump on Sunday re jected Comey's assertion that Trump had sought his loyalty at a January 2017 dinner, saying "I hardly even knew this guy. Just another of his many lies." He also suggested Comey should be imprisoned, tweeting, "how come he gave up Classied Infor mation (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail)." There is no indication Comey is under investiga tion for doing either. The president began as sailing Comey even before the interview came out. He seized on an excerpt shown Saturday in which Comey said his belief that Clinton would beat Trump in the 2016 presidential election was probably a factor in his decision to disclose the investigation into her emails. Comey, Trump tweeted, "was mak ing decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Slimeball!" That argument was star tling given that Comey's handling of the email in vestigation, including his disclosure shortly before the election that the FBI had reopened its probe, enraged Democrats. After Clinton's loss, many Democrats blamed Comey, and Clinton herself has said it hurt her election pros pects. Comey again defended his actions, telling ABC that he made what he thought was the best de cision at the time. Comey said he did not remember "consciously thinking" about the election results as he decided to disclose that the FBI had reopened its investigation into can didate Clinton's email use. But, he acknowledged, "I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump, and so I'm sure that it was a factor." "I don't remember spell ing it out," he added, "but it had to have been that she's going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she'll be illegitimate the moment she's elected, the moment this comes out." Trump red Comey in May 2017, setting off a scramble at the Justice Department that led to the appointment of Mueller as special counsel over seeing the Russia investigation. Mueller's probe has expanded to include whether Trump obstructed justice by ring Comey. So far, 19 people in cluding Flynn and Trump's former campaign chair man, Paul Manafort have been charged in the investigation. Flynn and two of the president's cam paign aides, Rick Gates and George Papadopou los, have pleaded guilty and are cooperating with Mueller. Asked whether he be lieved Trump ought to be impeached, Comey replied, "I hope not because I think impeaching and removing Donald Trump from ofce would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I be lieve they're duty bound to do directly. People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values." He added: "But you cannot have, as president of the United States, some one who does not reect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and in dependents treasure. That is the core of this country. That's our foundation. And so impeachment, in a way, would short circuit that."

Page E12, NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) Bill Cosby's chief accuser was headed back to the witness stand on Monday for a second day of testimony in the comedian's sexual assault retrial after enduring cross-ex amination by his attorney last week. Cosby lawyer Tom Mesereau was expected to continue questioning An drea Constand about discrepancies between what she's said in the past about Cosby and what she said on the witness as the de fense seeks to undermine her credibility and sow doubt in the jury. Mesereau opened the retrial with a blistering attack on Constand, telling jurors that evidence would show she's nothing more than a con artist who framed the comedian and cashed in with a $3.4 mil lion civil settlement. Now with Constand on the witness stand and fac ing more defense questions on Monday, Mesereau is scouring a binder full of her police statements and prior testimony and he's nding some inconsistencies Cosby arrived at the rain-soaked suburban Philadelphia courthouse on Monday morning wear ing a black raincoat and walking under a large, black umbrella held by his spokesman. Mesereau hasn't set off many reworks yet, but in more than two hours of cross examination on Friday the veteran trial lawyer had Constand us tered with questions about whether she'd ever said she was affectionate toward Cosby, and a line of attack centered on her involve ment in a Ponzi scheme. In her testimony on Friday, Constand denied ever having intimate contact with Cosby prior to the night in January 2004 that she said he drugged and molested her, but Mesereau showed her a 2005 deposition in which she testied that she told her mother she'd occasionally been affectionate to ward him. Constand, who's from the Toronto area, told Mesereau she was just be ing nice when she hugged Cosby or kissed him on the cheek, because she was grateful for his friendship and mentorship. But Mesereau, who's best known for winning Michael Jackson an ac quittal in his 2005 child molestation case, was incredulous as Constand denied being aware that Cosby was sexually at tracted to her even after he touched her thigh on one occasion and tried unbuttoning her pants on another. Constand was more con dent and composed as she told jurors about the night in question. She testied that Cosby offered her pills and a sip of wine after she said she was "stressed" about tell ing the coach of her plans to leave to study massage therapy in her native Can ada. She said she awoke to nd the actor known as "America's Dad" penetrating her with his ngers, touching her breast and putting her hand on his penis. Mesereau clawed back, making clear to jurors that Constand's answers have varied on the date of the alleged assault, how often she dined out with Cosby, whether she made a point of wearing a cashmere sweater he gave to her and where she wound up when she visited his room at a Connecticut casino. Constand was the direc tor of women's basketball operations at Temple Uni versity in Philadelphia when she met Cosby, a powerful alumnus and member of the board of trustees. Mesereau was trying to portray Constand to jurors as the aggressor, suggesting she pursued Cosby for a romantic relationship and preyed on the loneli ness he felt after the 1997 killing of his son, Ennis, even though such activity may have been barred by her employment. Constand said she didn't remember taking a required sexual assault and harassment training seminar when she started work ing at Temple, or another one on avoiding conicts of interest, such as frater nizing with board trustees. Mesereau showed documents Constand signed conrming she participation in the classes. Asked if she was taught to promptly report sexual assault allegations, Con stand replied: "I can't speak to what was in the curriculum." Constand also struggled to explain why she had sent emails soliciting funds for a purported Ponzi scheme while at Temple, claiming she didn't know much about the company and had only cut and pasted promises of big returns for a risk-free $65 investment to help a friend. The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permis sion, which Constand has done. CITIZEN TRIBUNENationEEE-4 Monday, April 16, 2018 APBill Cosby arrives for his sexual assault trial, Monday, April 16, 2018, at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa. Bill Cosby lawyer scours accuser's words, looking for doubtGranddaughter: Barbara Bush is 'a fighter,' in good spiritsHOUSTON (AP) Former rst lady Barbara Bush, who was reported in "failing health" over the weekend, is in "great spirits" and the family is grateful for "everybody's prayers and thoughts," her granddaughter said Mon day. Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath said in a news release Sunday that "Mrs. Bush, now age 92, has decided not to seek ad ditional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care" at home in Houston following consultations with her doctors and family. McGrath did not elab orate on the nature of Bush's health problems but on Monday said she's suffered in recent years from congestive heart fail ure and chronic obstruc tive pulmonary disease. She also has been treated for decades for Graves' disease, which is a thyroid condition, had heart sur gery in 2009 for a severe narrowing of her main heart valve and was hos pitalized a year before that for surgery on a perforated ulcer. Jenna Bush Hager, an anchor on NBC's "Today" show, told the program Monday morning that Bush is resting comfortably with family. "She's a ghter. She's an enforcer," Hager said, using the family's nickname for her grandmother. "We're grateful for her, for everybody's prayers and thoughts, and just know the world is better because she is in it." "We are grateful for her. She's the best grandma anybody could have ever had ... or have," she said. Bush is one of only two rst ladies who was also the mother of a president. The other was Abigail Ad ams, wife of John Adams, the nation's second president, and mother of John Quincy Adams, the sixth president. Bush married George H.W. Bush on Jan. 6, 1945. They had six children and have been married longer than any presidential couple in American history. Eight years after she and her husband left the White House, Mrs. Bush stood with her husband as their son George W. was sworn in as the 43rd president. Hager said the former president "still says, 'I love you Barbie' every night," describing their grandpar ents' close relationship as "remarkable." McGrath said Bush was concerned more for her family than herself. "It will not surprise those who know her that Barbara Bush has been a rock in the face of her failing health, worrying not for herself thanks to her abiding faith but for others," he said. President Donald Trump's press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said in a statement Sunday evening that "the President's and rst lady's prayers are with all of the Bush family during this time." Bush is known for her white hair and her triplestrand fake pearl necklace. Her brown hair began to gray in the 1950s, while her 3-year-old daughter Pauline, known to her fam ily as Robin, underwent treatment for leukemia and eventually died in October 1953. She later said dyed hair didn't look good on her and credited the color to the public's perception of her as "everybody's grandmother." Her pearls sparked a na tional fashion trend when she wore them to her hus band's inauguration in 1989. The pearls became synonymous with Bush, who later said she selected them to hide the wrinkles in her neck. The candid admission only bolstered her common sense and down-to-earth public im age. Her 93-year-old husband, the nation's 41st president who served from 1989 to 1993, also has had health issues in recent years. In April 2017, he was hospitalized in Hous ton for two weeks for a mild case of pneumonia and chronic bronchitis. He was hospitalized months earlier, also for pneumo nia. He has a form of Par kinson's disease and uses a motorized scooter or a wheelchair for mobility. Before being president, he served as a congress man, CIA director and Ronald Reagan's vice president. Barbara Pierce Bush was born June 8, 1925, in Rye, New York. Her father was the publisher of McCall's and Redbook magazines. She and George H.W. Bush married when she was 19 and while he was a young naval aviator. After World War II, the Bushes moved to Texas where he went into the oil business. Along with her mem oirs, she's the author of "C. Fred's Story" and "Millie's Book," based on the lives of her dogs. Proceeds from the books beneted adult and family literacy programs. The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy began during her White House years with the goal of improving the lives of disadvantaged Americans by boosting lit eracy among parents and their children. The foun dation partners with local programs and had awarded more than $40 million as of 2014 to create or expand more than 1,500 literacy programs nationwide.

Thursday, April 19, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E13 HAVANA (AP) In 2008 Raul Castro took over a country where most people couldn't own computers or cellphones, leave without permission, run most types of private businesses or enter resort hotels. Castro set about re-engi neering the system he had helped create and Cuba opened dramatically over his decade in ofce. But when Castro steps down Thursday after two terms as president he will leave his successor a host of problems that are deeper than on the day his broth er Fidel formally handed over power. Cuba has nearly 600,000 private entrepreneurs, more than 5 million cell phones, a bustling real es tate market and one of the world's fastest-growing airports. Limited inter net use is expanding fast, with thousands of Cubans installing new home con nections this year. Foreign debt has been paid. Tour ism numbers have more than doubled since Castro and President Barack Obama re-established diplomatic relations in 2015, making Cuba a destina tion for nearly 5 million visitors a year, despite a plunge in relations under the Trump administration. On the other side of the ledger, Cuba's Soviet-style command economy still employs three of every four Cuban workers but produces little. Private sector growth has been largely frozen. The aver age monthly state salary is $31 so low that workers often live on stolen goods and handouts from rela tives overseas. Foreign in vestment remains anemic. The island's infrastructure is falling deeper into disrepair. The break with Washington dashed dreams of detente with the U.S., and after two decades of get ting Venezuelan subsidies totaling more than $6 billion a year, Cuba's patron has collapsed economically with no replacement in the wings. Castro's inability or un willingness to x Cuba's structural problems with deep and wide-ranging re forms has many wondering how a successor without Castro's founding father credentials will manage the country over the next ve or 10 years. "People in Cuba really haven't processed yet what it means to have a gov ernment without Raul or Fidel leading it," said Yas sel Padron Kunakbaeva, a prolic 27-year-old blogger who writes frequently from what he describes as a Marxist, revolutionary perspective. "We're enter ing unknown territory." Tens of thousands of highly educated professionals are abandoning the island each year, leaving Cuba with the combination of third-world econo my and the demographics of a graying European na tion. After a 2016 reces sion, Cuba said growth was 1.6 percent last year, although ofcial accounts remain opaque and ques tioned by experts. The sin gle-party government controls virtually all forms of expression and organiza tion, with near-zero toler ance of public criticism or dissent. The mood on the street is pessimistic, with few expecting a better future anytime soon. "The political future of whoever takes over in April depends on the economic question," said Jose Raul Viera Linares, a former rst deputy minis ter of foreign affairs. "It's the possibility for young people to dream, to design their own future. That's all based in the material wealth that this country is able to achieve." The greatest immediate challenge for Castro's expected successor 57-year-old Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel Ber mudez is unwinding a byzantine dual-currency system featuring one type of Cuban peso worth 4 cents and another that is nearly a dollar. The system was designed to insulate a state-run, egalitarian inter nal market using "national money" from trade with the outside world denominated in "convertible pe sos." The barrier between the two worlds swiftly collapsed and the system has fostered big economic dis tortions. Inefcient state enterprises receive mammoth subsidies by obtain ing expensive convertible pesos for the price of the cheaper "Cuban peso." The dual-currency system also allows private busi nesses to receive subsidized goods and services like water and electricity in Cuban pesos, then turn around and charge their relatively wealthy clients in convertible pesos at a signicant prot. Castro called for elimination of the dual curren cies from the beginning of his presidency, but never got around to it. Unlike his brother Fidel, who extended his time in ofce until illness forced him to retire, Raul has long made clear that he would step down as president in 2018 as part of a coordinated handoff to a new generation of leaders. He will remain rst sec retary of the Communist Party, the country's guid ing body, but many Cu bans expect him to move into semi-retirement in Santiago, the largest city in Cuba's east, where he was born and led rebel troops in the country's 1959 revolution. In one of his nal speeches last year he called once again for the system's urgent elimination, a process that many expect to start in Diaz-Canel's rst year in power. Eliminating dual currency is widely seen as necessary for Cu ba's economy to grow, but it carries risks of ination and major disruption for inefcient state businesses whose subsidized balance sheets will nally become understandable when they are denominated in a sin gle currency. Those state businesses gained new competitors as Castro expanded the space for capitalism in the Cu ban economy by permit ting private enterprise in dozens of elds ranging from agriculture to hospi tality to construction. "We've risen up eco nomically. The new pos sibilities have changed my life, of course," said Yanelis Garcia, a 44-yearold mother of three who saved money from raising pigs in her backyard to slowly build a prosperous six-room bed-and-breakfast and taxi business in the central city of Santa Clara. "I've always liked having my own business to be able to provide for my family. It's been really good." Cubans ll thousands of ights a year to Mi ami, Panama and Cancun, where they cram duffel bags with gym socks and Xboxes for the vibrant pri vate sector and rising mid dle class. But last August, the Cuban government froze new licenses for pri vate bed-and-breakfasts, restaurants and other pop ular businesses, leaving many Cubans questioning how their government en visions a path to prosper ity. "We've seen necessary reforms and I think that in the future there will have to be more," said Norma Chiang, a 77-year-old state accountant and au ditor. "Self-employment needs to be broadened, little things like bakeries or food stands that can be in the hands of individuals and not the state." Despite the image of Raul Castro as an allpowerful military strongman, many Cubans say back-and-forth moves and the overall slow pace of reform have shown the difculty of modernizing a Soviet-era bureaucracy controlled by hundreds of thousands of civil servants who would be threatened by a transition into a mar ket economy, a difculty Castro's successor will also face. "No one dares to disobey Raul to his face. They qui etly don't get things done and search for ways to cover their backs so no one can accuse them of not getting things done," Padron said. Cuba's next president also must nd a way to make its economy grow while maintaining social stability and satisfying the millions of Cubans who depend on the state and a shrinking list of subsidized essentials sold in Cuban pesos for their survival. While Cuba sees Russia as one of its closest allies, Cuba's leaders are desperate to prevent the sort of shock transition to capitalism that marked the end of the Soviet Union. "I can't eat, dress myself and live on $20 a month," said Adela Arpajon, a 54-year-old accountant for the Communist Party. "I either eat or buy clothes. It's hard, but that's the way it is." Wariness of disruption is exacerbated by Cuba's increasing economic dependence on the Cuban emigres and exiles once seen by the Communist government as a threat to its survival. As part of his broader immigration reforms, Raul Castro changed Cuba's relationship with its dias pora by allowing Cubans to maintain their rights to o wn property and receive social benets as long as they return once every two years. That change fueled the growth of a new class of Cubans who earn mon ey overseas but invest at home and are responsible for hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars in small-scale investment on the island in recent years. More than 20,000 Cuban emigres have "repatriated" and regained their property rights since the emigration reforms, according to Cuban gures. Still, the ow of emigres back to Cuba is swamped by the outward ood of Cubans unleashed by Castro's elimination of the hated exit permit known as the "white card." According to U.S. Home land Security statistics, the United States admitted 463,502 Cubans between 2006 and 2016, with tens of thousands more heading to countries such as Spain and Ecuador. "I don't think people have realized how momentous that is in terms of for the rst time having circular migration," said Lisan dro Perez, an expert on the Cuban diaspora at New York's John Jay College of Criminal Justice. "They take back things, they nance private restaurants. It's a totally different ball game." Castro's successor will have to manage the deli cate relationship with Cu ba's prosperous exiles at a time when relations with the U.S. have dropped from an unprecedented high under President Barack Obama to a deep low under President Donald Trump. For Reinaldo Taladrid, a popular commentator on state television, tensions with the U.S. will serve as a brake on any reforms sought by Raul Castro's successor. "While there's a sense of a state of siege, there's an instinct of self-preser vation that doesn't have anything to do with politics. It's the human instinct for self-preservation. You have the world's most powerful state, the most powerful government in the history of humanity that has regime change in Cuba as its ofcial poli cy," Taladrid said. "While that's true this little, poor country's government will have a siege mentality, and it's logical to have it."
