By Rachel Christian Staff Writer e Osceola County School Districts Health Insurance Trust Fund is rapidly spiraling into debt. The fund, which pays for employee healthcare with monthly insurance premiums, racked up $2.4 million in outstanding expenses in the rst quarter of 2018. In just three months, healthcare expenses exceeded revenue by twice as much as the same time last year. Its a trend that Superintendent of Osceola County Schools, Debra Pace, described as unsustainable. Several board members described the debt as a crisis situation. Pace went before the School Board last week to share the latest numbers. Weve got to continue to discuss what other things we can and need to do, Pace said. Expensive treatments for employee illnesses, such as diabetes and muscularskeletal diseases, as well as the pricey specialty drugs associated with them, are contributing factors to the districts mounting debt. But in general, Pace noted, it has been from higher claims from dependents and spouses. District ocials knew numbers didnt bode well last year when they attempted to increase employee health insurance By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Excitement hung in the air as hundreds of St. Cloud High School seniors led into the courtyard Friday aernoon. It was in celebration of Decision Day, an event hosted at high schools across the country to recognize students heading o to college, trade school or enlisting in the military aer graduation. Principal Nate Fancher said he is proud of his students, but also reminded them that the end of high school is only the beginning. I tell my students all the time that graduating high school is not the goal, Fancher said. In 2018, that diploma has to be a ticket into something else. Seventy percent, or 411 St. Cloud High School students, plan to attend a college, trade school or enlist in the military, according to the schools guidance counselor department. The class of 2018 saw another major accomplishment at St. Cloud this year. More than $8 million in scholarships were awarded to students, up from $6 million in 2017. New at SeaWorld.A new Sesame Street-themed area is expected to open in spring 2019.Page 11.KUA invests in major solar energy project By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Kissimmee Utility Authority and 11 other municipal electric companies announced plans Friday for a massive solar power project projected to generate energy for roughly 44,600 residential customers by 2020. The energy will come from three new solar farms spanning a combined 900,000 solar panels in Orange and Osceola counties. The Florida Municipal Power Agency (FMPA) oversees the initiative, known as the Florida Municipal Solar Project. KUA Vice President of Corporate Communications Chris Gent said the utility company has been exploring solar energy options for years. Until recently though, the cost proved too prohibitive for the city-run utility company. e price for solar generation has nally come down to the cost of traditional power, Gent said. is has been made possible through the extension of federal tax incentives for solar companies. e projects scope includes the installation of about 900,000 solar panels across three solar farms in Orange and Osceola County. Panels will be installed on a racking system that uses computercontrolled motors to move panels in the direction of sunlight for maximum eciency. A group called NextEra Florida Renewables will own and run the plants, selling the power to the cities at locked-in rates. The three solar farms would produce 223.5 megawatts of energy for roughly 44,600 residential customers. Permitting is expected to take about 18 months, with construction set to begin in early 2020. The project should be operational by June 30, 2020, Gent said. KUA and the other utility companies wont have to pay for the construction of the solar farms.

Josie was 33 years younger than Thomas and was an attendant in his oce following their marriage. Dr. Rivers died on June 27, 1943; his obituary in the Kissimmee Valley Gazette gave a detailed account of his life in Kissimmee Dr. Rivers proved himself to be not only one of the best horse and buggy doctors, but also a scholarly and scientific one. The old county trails from Fort Drum to Kissimmee, and from Lake Hart to Davenport, were well traveled by the doctor and his horse and buggy, ministering to the sick and unfortunate, way back in the early days of the county, and long before the era of the automobile had dawned. In 1913, he pioneered with the rst hospital in Osceola County, his practice extending over the entire Kissimmee valley territory. In addition to his private professional accomplishments he also contributed his talents in an ocial capacity. He served as health ocer of Kissimmee and of Osceola County for many years.

He had read numerous papers before the Florida Medical Association and Southern Medical Association, as well as being the author of a book entitled The Atonomic Diseases or the Rheumatic Syndrome. Throughout his career Dr. Rivers was a most public-spirited citizen, contributing generously of his time and talents to the welfare of the community. In his civic activities he was a member of the city council, member of the Kissimmee Chamber of Commerce, Orange Blossom Blue Lodge No. 80, the Free and Accepted Masons, and of the First Christian Church of Kissimmee.

A large part of Central Floridas thriving economy is fueled by travel to the region. However, its these visitors economic power that deserves more attention especially in Osceola County. The travel and tourism industry contributes enormously to the nations economic prosperity and its image abroad, but there are tangible benets to the industrys impact on Osceola County. Our largest industry, reaching far beyond the magic of Walt Disney World tourism represents job opportunities at every level, tax savings, and a higher quality of life for county residents. Last year, the industry saw visitor spending reach $3.8 billion, provided 45,000 jobs, and saw approximately $6 billion in economic impact. The taxes collected on every Twistee Treat sold, hotel room booked, kayak rented, and dollar spent in Osceola County saves each household $900 a year in taxes. Im thrilled to announce in 2017 the county collected a record $51 million in Tourism Development Tax (TDT), surpassing $50 million for the first time. These funds help support community events, sporting facilities, libraries, and organizations including the Museum of Military History and Silver Spurs Rodeo. Given these extraordinary returns, its important we recognize the industrys unique emphasis on welcoming visitors from near and far with 8.6 million overnight visitors in Osceola County last year, to be exact. It is for this reason that I encourage elected leaders to support programs and policies that encourage travel, tourism, and economic growth right here, and I make it a priority to inform residents about the ways tourism enriches their lives. ats why this week in Osceola County, along with travel industry professionals across the country, we are celebrating the 35th annual National Travel and Tourism Week to highlight travels long history of supporting jobs, businesses, and livelihoods and to promote its future growth that provides benets to not only visitors but all county residents. Travel makes a difference in our communities and lives every day. From Osceola Countys humble beginnings as a transportation hub in the late nineteenth century for riverboats and railroads to its status as a focal point of Central Floridas tourism corridor, residents have always and will always benet from the areas visitors. So, this week, I encourage you to show appreciation for the benefits tourism provides and extend a warm welcome to all our visitors.

Each year, it is the largest one-day food drive in the world. Before the regular mail pickup on Saturday, May 12, residents are asked to leave bags of non-perishable/ non-expired food items by their mailbox. Since it is expected to rain, consider putting food items in plastic bags and protect them from getting wet to prevent water from damaging any cardboard cartons.

Items specifically requested at this time are canned fruit in natural juices or light syrup, ready to eat and condensed soups, pork and beans or baked beans, jelly in plastic jars/squeeze containers, peanut butter (18 oz plastic containers), spaghetti sauce in plastic jars or metal containers. The postal carriers, food pantry volunteers and clients receiving the food ask residents to avoid donating items in glass jars. However, all non-expired nonperishable food donations are appreciated.

Page 6 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, May 10, 2018 INSIDERS Tips and Advice from Local Professionals You probably know that about 70% of the Earths surface is covered in water. But did you know that only 3% of it is fresh water, and only about 1% of that is accessible? ats why we at Toho Water Authority (Toho) every year celebrate Drinking Water Week (May 6-12) and recognize the vital role water plays in our daily lives and our responsibility to provide safe drinking water to our community. So where does the water come from? Most of the drinking water in Florida comes from an underground aquifer known as the Floridan aquifer. is aquifer underlies the entire state of Florida and reaches to parts of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina. If youre a Toho customer, this is where your potable water comes from. e water from the aquifer is of high quality and needs very little treatment. Your water is tested daily Even before the water leaves one of our thirteen water plants, it is monitored to ensure it abides by all state and federal drinking water standards. When the water leaves the plants, it is also lab tested daily throughout our service area for quality assurance. e test results are published every July 1 in our annual Water Quality Reports which are available on our website www. tohowater.com. Sometimes lines break Occasionally a water main will break causing a drop in pressure. If the pressure drops below a certain level, a precautionary boil water advisory has to be issued. Once service is restored Toho tests the water supply following regulatory guidelines to prove that the water is safe to consume. Once the required testing is completed the advisory is lied. To receive advisories on your phone for your area customers can sign up on our Alerts Sign Up page found in the News & Alerts section of www.tohowater.com. Today we provide about 35 million gallons of potable water to our customers on a daily basis. For us, it is vitally important to safeguard this continuous supply for generations to come. So we are proud to be a member of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and celebrate with them Drinking Water Week. Please visit www.awwa.org to learn more. WATER AUTHORITY THEInsidersTips & Advice From Local Professionals You use it everyday Spring Cleaning For Your Finances Ah, Spring Cleaning! You know how it works: once a year you massively overhaul your house, garden, yard, and so on, but spring cleaning doesnt just apply to your house. Its also a healthy exercise to review your financial position from time to time so that you can be sure your behaviors are in line with your short and long term objectives. This can be accomplished by creating or examining your current budget for your finances. If youve never created a budget for your personal finances, the first step in your financial spring cleaning needs to be just that. Budgeting is the most effective way to take control of your spending and saving. Sometimes its easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives and not take the time to pause and make sure were spending and saving our money wisely. There are all kinds of tools for budgeting to fit your personality. Form a spreadsheet, use online tools, or even pencil in your numbers in a notebook every month. The method doesnt matter; the budget itself does. Creating a budget in writing will give you something tangible to remind you of your goals and help to keep you on track. If youre familiar with budgeting, spring cleaning for you might be reassessing your current budget. Ask yourself if there are areas of spending that you could cut. What would you rather spend more on? The point is to reassess your priorities and make sure your budget lines up to those priorities. Then, consider having someone look it over with you.

Thursday, May 10, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 7 By Ken Jackson Sports Editor Saturday at the Class 4A state track meet at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville was Coronation Day for Celebration Highs Hunter Hummel. e Storms senior thrower, in his third state meet competing in the discus and shot put and his last competition wearing the purple and white CHS colors, wowed the crowd, his onlooking family, his coaches and himself with a personal best discus throw of 181 feet, 5 inches on the fourth of his six throws that was good enough to earn the gold medal as a state champion. Hummel, who le for a trip to his native West Virginia following the state meet, said earlier in the week that the victory still hadnt sunk in. I havent taken the medal o yet, he said Monday. is validates all those nights of practice and hard work. Aer competing in the shot put, in which he nished 20th, he was able to execute a game plan for his six throws that he started to excitedly visualize the night before. I didnt do much sleeping, it was a long night, but I felt great going in, he said. Everything went as I planned. e throw was nice and easy to get into the nal (top eight), and then the fourth throw was just eortless power. The clinching throw was some nine feet over his previous personal record. Hummels main competition was Derek Akey of Gainesville Buchholz, who had a 173-foot eort already on the board and was in the rotation ahead of Hummel. I knew he could go 181, so I wasnt counting my chickens, Hummel said. When he didnt on his last throw, that was the greatest feeling of my life. With the title locked up, he took his nal throw anyway as a chance to try to close his high school career with another PR. Celebration track coach Cli Branch said he never doubted Hummels game plan and mental state going into the weekend, and embraced his role as a cheerleader and adviser. When you have a student athlete of the sport like Hunter that works hard everyday with the passion to win, I just continue to encourage his eorts to be the best he can be at every opportunity, visualize your throws before the meet, have a short term memory, and just be yourself and compete, Branch said, who also noted Hummel looked good and ready to compete from the outset. Earlier during our season, I registered Hunter for the prestate meet (at UNF) to get a feel of the atmosphere and discus area. It seemed to pay o, he said. Hunters 1st throw was over (170 feet) and I said to myself, Hes feeling good today. I was so happy for him because he responded to his competition that sealed the deal for him to become the 4A state discus champion. It was the icing on the cake for Hunters career at Celebration High School. Hummels effort gave Celebration 10 points, good for a tie for 20th in the 4A boys team standings. The countys other standout thrower, St. Cloud Essence Tornabene, earned 12 points for the Lady Bulldogs in her third and final state meet appearance.

Celebration, coached by Pedro Davila, began the festivities Friday night with a 25-21, 2527, 25-21, 25-16 win over Palm Beach Central (18-4). e Storms three-headed oensive machine of Johnansen Negron (20 kills), Alejandro Hernandez (19) and Carlos Adrian Mercado (11, with ve service aces) put the ball down hard. Setters Diego Arroyo (33 assists) and Christopher Rivera (19) combined for 52 assists. In their Saturday seminal, the Storm took on undefeated Miami Southwest, which was ranked No. 2 in the MaxPreps rankings entering the tournament, looked the Eagles in the eye from across the net, then promptly dispatched them in straight sets, 25-22, 25-9, 25-21, with Negron (18 kills), Mercado (11) and Arroyo (35 assists) leading the way. It all led to a meeting with Cardinal Gibbons (28-0), which was ranked No. 1 in Florida and No. 10 nationally by MaxPreps, and the championship began well for Celebration, which won the rst set, 31-29. Despite another 23 kills by Negron, and 36 assists from Arroyo, the Chiefs took the next games 25-21, 25-23, 28-26, despite much resistance from the Storm. The Storm dropped only 10 sets all season, with four coming during the state tournament.

State and Johnson and Wales. They had started scouting me last year, and when I visited I really liked the USF sta, campus and team, she said. Davila began running track in middle school, where she was a sprinter and just hurdled for fun, she said. One time, during a meet, I saw a hurdle just sitting in the ineld and I jumped over it and it was very easy, so I started doing it in meets, she said. While she sprinted fulltime as a freshman, when her 4x100 team advanced to the Class 3A state meet, Davila became a full-time hurdler as a sophomore, when she made her rst appearance at state in the 100 high hurdles and nished 10th. Last year she qualified for state in both hurdles and on both relay teams, and was fourth in the 300 hurdles in 43.28 seconds. This year shes been running the hurdles and the 4x100 and 4x400 for the Eagles, and qualified for state in the 100 hurdles. Her qualifying time of 15.28, o of what she ran in Gainesville, leaves her in the middle of a tight pack of seeded runners. Ive been timemanaging it all, its been exciting and this year has been the best so far, Davila said.

Page 10 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, May 10, 2018 Study abroad programs give students unique opportunities to experience other cultures while pursuing their degrees. Such programs appeal to students who want to see the world without interrupting their studies, and many students who study abroad develop an affinity for travel that remains with them for the rest of their lives. When considering studying abroad programs or attending college overseas, recent high school graduates or current high school students should consider a few factors before committing to a program. Language barrier Students, particularly those who are not uent in a foreign language, may nd it easier to live in countries where English is the primary language. While study abroad students can expect to work with professors who speak English regardless of where they go, life outside the classroom can be dicult for young students who do not understand the primary language spoken in the country where they will be studying. Life overseas Students who want to attend school full-time overseas may benefit by first studying through a study abroad program before committing to a twoor fouryear program in another country. This gives students a chance to get a feel for a country and its culture and lifestyle before making a long-term commitment to living and studying there. Program size e safety in numbers philosophy is applicable for all travelers, but it can be especially beneficial for young students studying abroad. Students may feel more safe and comfortable when signing up for programs that include many students as opposed to more exclusive programs that include only a handful of students. Large programs provide a built-in social network, and students may feel safer exploring foreign cities in large groups made up of fellow students than going it alone or traveling in small groups. Documentation Students should speak with program directors about the documentation they may need to make the most of their time overseas. CEA Study Abroad recommends that students bring photocopies of all important documents, including passports, drivers licenses, airline tickets, health insurance cards, and student identication cards, with them when studying overseas. is protects students should their wallets or backpacks be lost or stolen while theyre overseas. Students also should include a list of any medical conditions or medications they take among their documentation and include their emergency contact information on this list. Studying abroad can be a very rewarding experience for young students, who must consider a host of factors before committing to a program so they can have the most enjoyable experience possible.Tips for grads considering studying abroad Planning for a memorable and happy graduation day CONTACT BRIAN MCBRIDE EDITOR EMAIL BMCBRIDE@OSCEOLANEWSGAZETTE.COM Graduation day can be an exciting and nerve-wracking experience. Steeped in tradition, graduation signies the end of the line for academia for many students. Knowing what to expect during the commencement ceremony and being prepared can help tame nerves and ensure the day moves along as smoothly as possible. Get clothing set Choose your attire several days before the graduation ceremony. Try on the clothing that will be worn beneath the graduation gown along with the gown to ensure everything ts well. Collared shirts look classic beneath the gown for both female and male graduates. However, schools may have their own dress requirements that should be followed. Iron or have the dry cleaners press all items so they are crisp and free of wrinkles. Its a good idea to wear at shoes for the commencement ceremony. Whether traversing the football eld or the school auditorium, at, comfortable shoes will be easy to walk in and help graduates avoid slipping or tripping. Depending on the size of the graduating class, commencement ceremonies can take a few hours. Make sure to eat a hearty breakfast and be well-hydrated prior to leaving the house. If possible, bring along a small bottle of water. Outdoor ceremonies or those in stuy auditoriums can mean contending with sun and warmth. Sipping water can prevent overheating. Leave travel time Much of the community will be en route to the graduation, making for congested roads and dicult parking situations. Do not add to nerves by rushing around. Give yourself an extra half hour or so to arrive at the destination and get settled. Suggest an early departure for guests as well, as the parking lot or on-street parking will ll up quickly. Expect limited tickets Many schools have space restrictions and can only accommodate a predetermined number of attendees. Tickets may be limited to a specic number per graduate. Extend a courtesy to those who cannot be invited by explaining the ticket policy. Find a way to honor loved ones in another way, such as during a toast at an aer-party or with personalized photo gis. Practice ceremony etiquette The school will set the tone for the commencement ceremony. Formal schools may have a more buttoned-up atmosphere, while other schools embrace livelier traditions. Heed the direction of faculty, as there will be plenty of time to let loose aer the ceremony. Make sure that you give all graduates the respect they deserve by turning o cell phones. In addition, remain seated until the ceremony is over and allow each graduate to get individualized recognition and take photos without feeling rushed. Wear academic dress properly Graduation caps are worn at on the head, parallel to the oor and with the front point centered on the forehead. e gown should be free of jewelry and owers. Some schools will adorn caps and gowns with academic regalia, while others will not. Reserve your graduation party as a chance to personalize if you so desire. Graduation is full of tradition. Planning for the day can tame nerves and make it an enjoyable experience. Productive ways to spend the summer after graduationGraduation is a momentous day in the lives of college students. After years of schooling that dates all the way back to preschool or kindergarten, newly minted college graduates are nally ready to begin their professional lives. at can be a scary prospect for some students, especially those who graduate without jobs lined up. e summer aer graduating from college can be a time like no other in the lives of new graduates. It can be easy to grow dejected as weeks or months go by without receiving a job offer. But spending the summer after graduation as productively as possible can help graduates overcome any dejection they might feel and increase their chances of landing a job. Contact career services oces at your alma mater. Career services oces can help recent graduates as they look for their rst jobs out of college. Such oces may have access to job and internship opportunities that grads do not. In addition, they may coach grads on interviewing techniques and on ways to stand out in crowded job markets. Seek internships. If partor fulltime employment is proving elusive, dont be afraid to seek and ultimately accept internships, which can provide a way for grads to get their foot in the doors in certain industries. Summer internships may already be lled, so scour job boards for fall or winter internships. Start networking. Students who interned can get in touch with their past supervisors or mentors and find out if the company is hiring. Such people may be more inclined to bring someone with direct experience onboard even if that experience was brief and unpaid. In addition, grads can connect with adjunct professors who work in their desired fields. When job hunting, dont get pigeon-holed by your major. Just because a student graduates with a particular degree does not mean he or she needs to look for work in that field. In fact, many companies may prefer entry-level applicants with degrees that are not specific to their industries so their new hires are blank slates who can be easily trained. Attend job fairs. While other graduates may be taking the summer o, enterprising grads looking for work should attend as many job fairs as possible. Graduates likely wont leave job fairs with employment oers in hand, but job fairs are a great way for grads to meet hiring managers and submit their rsums to potential employers. Customize a rsum for every job. Write and rene rsums for each job you apply for, mildly tweaking the wording or accomplishments to address the key phrases used in the job listing. It can be tempting for recent college grads to spend the summers aer graduation relaxing, but those who spend that time productively may lands jobs more quickly than those who do not. Co untries around the world emphasize the importance of educating their young people. In spite of the importance of education, not every locality has the same level of resources for the people in need. Some countries excel at educating their young people, and their policies may contribute to the higher rates of high school graduation. The following is a ranking of countries with the highest high school graduation rates courtesy of data compiled by Insider Monk ey. 1. Portugal: 96 percent 2. Slovenia: 96 percent 3. Finland: 95 percent 4. Japan: 95 percent 5. United Kingdom: 92 percent 6. Ireland: 91 percent 7. Norway: 91 percent 8. New Zealand: 90 percent 9. Switzerland: 90 percent 10. Iceland: 89 percent

Though the local business started serving customers at its new location earlier this year, the grand re-opening set the start date of new menu oerings, including flatbreads, salads, wings, pasta selections and more. e pizzeria will, of course, still oer its favored handtossed pizzas, including the 24 Jumbo. The move has been such a huge benet, said Main Street Pizza coowner Lanson Miller. We struggled a lot with the smaller location. Now that weve moved [to Broadway], the whole dynamic of the restaurant has changed. We have a lot more freedom. The look of the new location is much dierent than the old. While the square footage is much bigger and allows for more seating, the overall interior has a very sleek, modern style featuring dark grey walls, lime green accents and wood finishes. The front of house is an open concept, with glass walls dividing the pizza station from customers. e plan for the modern interior was heavily influenced by Miller and his business partner, David Hill. e two young adults Miller, 22, and Hill, 21 had a very sharp idea of what they wanted the establishment to look like. With a modern setting, comes modern ideas. Miller said he has big plans for the pizzeria, as he plans to lay a patio and plant a garden out back. He said the patio will host live musical performances by local musicians, for an atmosphere the small business hasnt been able to provide before. Being young owners, we want to relate to whats current, said Miller, noting that live music has become a large part of dining out. Plus we really take pride in our resources, he continued. We want people to be able to walk through the garden, and see the basil and other products we use. Miller grew up around the restaurant business, and began training in a pizzeria at a young age. At 18, he started a new path in fine-dining. He said the Mediterraneanstyle restaurant had great food and great service two elements he feels are necessary in a successful restaurant business, no matter the type. And with that, ingredients are also very important to Miller. He said the new menu has allowed him and his team to step outside of the traditional pizzeria menu, and create unique recipes, while focusing on fresh produce. Everything is made to order, he said. We want to be what I was trained in: farm-to-table, fresh food, but with a comfortable and homey atmosphere. Miller opened Main Street Pizza on Main Street in 2016. Needless to say, the business has brought what Downtown Kissimmee had been missing. We dont feel like a competition to other businesses because we are so dierent, said Miller. We saw a niche in Kissimmee that wasnt fullled. And they fullled it.

To people outside of the medical eld with no personal or family history of Parkinsons, the disease may only ring a bell because of some notable names attached to it. e late Muhammad Ali and actor Michael J. Fox are two household names that made their Parkinsons diagnoses public. But even those who study Parkinsons for a living do not know everything about this puzzling disease. According to the Parkinsons Foundation, the cause of Parkinsons disease is largely unknown. While theres no cure for the disease, various treatment options can help those diagnosed with the disease live as normal and productive a life as possible. The PF notes that understanding the disease and its progression is the rst step to living well. ough the foundation also notes that people first start experiencing symptoms later in the course of the disease, learning to recognize some early symptoms may compel people to seek treatment. Tremor: Many people might experience shaking after a vigorous workout or when they are dealing with stress or injury. But the PF notes that a tremor in a nger, thumb, hand, or chin while at rest is a common early sign of Parkinsons disease. Small handwriting: Handwriting can change as people age, especially if they are experiencing stiness in their hands or their vision is deteriorating. But micrographia, a disorder in which handwriting becomes abnormally small and cramped, is another early indicator of Parkinsons disease. Loss of smell: The PF advises people who are having trouble smelling foods such as bananas, dill pickles or licorice speak with their physicians about Parkinsons disease. Temporary loss of smell due to something like the common cold, congestion or the flu is not an early indicator of Parkinsons. Difficulty sleeping: A significant other may notice their partner moving suddenly during sleep, and such movements may be indicative of Parkinsons. The PF notes that periodic tossing and turning is normal, as is quick jerks of the body during initial sleep and in lighter stages of sleep are common and should not be mistaken for Parkinsons. Stiffness: Stiffness related to current or past injuries or even arthritis is not indicative of Parkinsons. But stiffness in the arms, body and legs that is unrelated to injury or arthritis and does not go away with movement might be a sign of Parkinsons. e PF notes that people sometimes describe this symptom by saying their feet feel stuck to the oor when they try to move. Constipation: People who strain to move their bowels might be showing an early sign of Parkinsons. However, various factors, such as dehydration and a diet without adequate fiber, can cause constipation. In addition, men and women on medication may want to look into side eects of their medications to determine if their medicine, and not Parkinsons, is the cause of their difficulty moving their bowels. These are just a few potential early indicators of Parkinsons disease. Information about additional symptoms is available at www. parkinson.org.

TURNING CIRCLE (curb-to-curb) 35.1 ft. CURB WEIGHT 3,405 lbs. FUEL CAPACITY 18.5 gal. EPA MILEAGE RATING 23 mpg city, 30 mpg highwayJoy for Two Copyright, Motor Matters, 2018 FOR THE LATEST NEWS WEBSITE AROUNDOSCEOLA.COM Motor Matters e Jaguar F-Type is a seriously sexy sports roadster for two people. Not since the legendary XK 120, XK 140, XK 150, and XKE-Type has Jaguar produced a true sports roadster for the avid driving enthusiast. Okay, Ill admit Jaguar currently produces a luxurious and highly desirable stable of vehicles, but certainly nothing more alluring and capable than the Jaguar F-Type, oered in coupe and convertible congurations. I just drove the 2018 Jaguar F-Type Convertible base model, although this open-air lineup actually consists of ve different models: entry-level F-Type, R-Dynamic, 400 Sport, an R convertible, plus the creme-de-la-creme SVR convertible F-Type. ree powertrains are available; the base convertible draws its motive force from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that gears energy to the rear wheels, producing 296 horsepower along with 295 lb.-. of torque. Next up is a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 that pumps out 340 horses while boosting the torque level to 332, mated to either F-TYPE CONV.a six-speed manual or the eight-speed automatic. A more-powerful supercharged V-6 is also available that delivers an additional 20 horsepower along with an increase in torque of 7 lb.-., paired only with an automatic gearbox. The SVR F-Type is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 that cranks out 575 horsepower and develops 516 lb.-. of torque while delivering power to all four wheels via an automatic transmission. All F-Type models are equipped with an Intelligent Stop/Start system to enhance fuel economy under certain driving conditions. In terms of its visual appeal, the 2018 F-Type is seductive from every angle, continuing Jaguars sporting bloodline that reaches back more than 75 years. e F-Type exhibits a near-perfect proportion and stance, with a long hood, a rearwardpositioned cabin, and a short rear deck and overhang. e sculpted, clamshell hood features a central power bulge and functional, slotted vents, blended with powerful fenders that appear to be shrink-wrapped over the cars mechanical form. A deployable rear spoiler operates automatically or manually. The F-Type convertible is equally attractive with the top up or down. e top, incidentally, is a Z-fold unit that operates in either direction in 12 seconds at up to 30 mph. Moving to the inside, the 1+1 cockpit is unashamedly driver-focused in terms of controls and switchgear positioning. e dashboard is low, and provides optimum visibility. A deployable center vent atop the dash disappears from view along with control icons with the ignition o. e purposeful, bronze-accented toggle switches below the three dual-purpose rotary knobs, and paddle shiers along with the substantial three-spoke steering wheel, contribute to the sporty persona of the F-Type that is not unlike the feel of a jet ghter cockpit. In a simple analysis, the 2018 Jaguar F-Type Convertible serves up the same emotional design quality as its more expensive stablemates, but it is aordable in relative terms, coming in at nearly half the cost of the SVR F-Type example. e technology level is more than satisfactory, and seats are supportive and comfortable as well. Acceleration is considerably more than adequate and braking is equally impressive. Ride quality and stability render the car solid and planted, but without any sensation of harshness. e steering input delivers an on-center feel with instantaneous response. In fact, every response from the steering to transmission shi points, throttle response, braking, and suspension has been nely tuned to deliver the most connected, accurate, and involved driving experience possible for a turbocharged four-bangerpowered ragtop. e drivers environment is emphasized through an asymmetrical cabin layout with all the controls placed naturally to hand and logically grouped, allowing for maximum attention on the driving experience. A grab handle sweeps down the center console on the passenger side, delineating it from the drivers position and wrapping around the center console. Virtually everything about the Jaguar F-Type stirs ones senses and emotions. It denitely deserves to be categorized as a performance luxury sports roadster. Its obviously not in the same league as the SVR F-Type, but think of what all the money saved can buy. In any case, the F-Type plays a signicant role in Jaguars return to providing the world with a highly desirable and genuine sports car, and now one that is truly aordable.

The first day of the campaign was May 3 at First United Methodist school where children made signs to post along busy roadways with the help of the Kissimmee Police Department. On May 4, signs were placed on Broadway as well with the help of members of the association, local merchants and the Kissimmee Police Department. Above: Jeremy Lanier, president of the Downtown Business Association of Kissimmee along with its members, Chucky Levine, Chef Pouchon Savion, and Jackie E.

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

Tribune Triple EWednesday, May 9, 2018 EEE-1 www.citizentribune.comTribune Expanded Electronic Edition Asparagus with hollandaise gets a remake with dill, roastingBY KATIE WORKMAN Associated PressA bowl of this stew is like a tiny little trip to the Mediterranean. It's unbelievably easy, but I would serve it to guests in a heartbeat (and it would be a pretty special Mother's Day lunch or dinner). It's hearty, but still so light and clean and simple. The saffron is optional, mostly because of cost. Saffron is a won derful but pricy spice; it's made from the stamens of crocuses, which might not sound delicious, but it adds a avor that is at once elusive, aromatic and deep. And a little goes a long way just a pinch of saffron adds so much di mension to the soup. You can absolutely positively serve the stew as is, with no extra adornment besides the shredded basil. Traditionally, in the south of France, this type of sh stew or soup is served with rouille, a bread-thickened sauce featuring peppers and seasonings. It's usual ly also accompanied by bread, and the sauce can be dolloped on the bread, and then oated in the stew so the sauce swirls into the liquid. As an unconventional but practi cal shortcut, you can stir a little bit of harissa or other chili paste into a mixture of sour cream and mayonnaise for a spicy-creamy approximation of rouille. But truly, once the fragrance of this stew, both warmly and bright ly avored, rises from the bowl, the only accompaniment you'll be looking for is a spoon.PROVENCAL FISH STEWServes 4 45 minutes start to nish 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided 1 small bulb fennel, cored, quartered and chopped (about 1 cup) 1 onion, chopped 1 zucchini, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 1/2 cup dry white wine 1 (28-ounce) can diced toma toes 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth 2 teaspoons fresh chopped thyme leaves or 1 teaspoon dried thyme Pinch saffron threads (optional) 2 Yukon Gold potatoes (about 8 ounces total), scrubbed or peeled and cut into 1/2 -inch dice 1 1/2 pounds aky white sh, such as cod, scrod or halibut 1 orange, zested and juiced 3 tablespoons halved pitted black olives 2 tablespoons torn fresh basil leaves Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large Dutch oven or pot over medium heat. Add the fennel and the onions, and saute for 5 minutes until they start to become tender. Add the zucchini and the garlic, season with salt and pepper, and saute for another 3 minutes, until all of the vegetables start to be come tender. Add the white wine, and stir to scrap up any browned bits stuck to the bottom of the pan. Add the tomatoes with their juice, the broth, thyme and saffron, and bring to a simmer; add the potatoes and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes, until the potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season the sh with salt and pepper, and sear the let on both sides, for 5 to 7 minutes per side, until the sh is just barely cooked through (it depends on the thickness of the sh). It's ne if it falls apart a bit. Remove and set aside. When cooled slightly, use a fork to break the sh into 1-inch chunks. Add them to the pot along with the orange zest and juice, and olives, stirring gently to combine. Serve hot with slivered basil on top of each portion.

By America's Test KitchenThe combination of aspar agus and hollandaise is quint essential in French cooking. Steamed asparagus is typically used, but the combina tion gets even better when the asparagus is roasted; the browning adds deep avor to the sweet and verdant vegetable. This complexity called out for a hollandaise with a bit more character than our lemon-scented standby, so we decided to use our Fool proof Mustard-Dill Hol landaise; tasters thought its zingy, herbal avor woke up the dish. When roasting the asparagus, America's Test Kitchen discovered that thicker spears held up better to the high heat. Peeling the bottom halves of the stalks just enough to expose the creamy white esh delivered consistently tender and visually appealing asparagus. To ensure a hard sear on our spears, we preheated the baking sheet and resisted the urge to give it a shake during roasting. This recipe works best with thick asparagus spears that are between and inch in diameter. Do not use pencil-thin asparagus; it overcooks too easily.ROASTED ASPARAGUS WITH MUSTARD-DILL HOLLANDAISEServings: 4 to 6 Start to nish: 20 minutes 2 pounds thick asparagus, trimmed 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil teaspoon salt teaspoon pepper Foolproof Mustard-Dill Hollandaise 3 large egg yolks 2 tablespoons lemon juice Salt Pinch cayenne pepper, plus extra for seasoning 16 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and still hot (180 degrees) 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill Adjust oven rack to lowest position, place rimmed bak ing sheet on rack, and heat oven to 500 degrees. Peel bottom halves of asparagus spears until white esh is ex posed, then toss with oil, salt, and pepper in bowl. Transfer asparagus to preheated sheet and spread into single layer. Roast, without moving asparagus, until undersides of spears are browned, tops are bright green, and tip of paring knife inserted at base of largest spear meets little resistance, 8 to 10 minutes. To prepare hollandaise, process egg yolks, lemon juice, teaspoon salt, and cayenne in blender until frothy, about 10 seconds, scraping bottom and sides of blender jar as needed. With blender running, slowly add hot butter and process until hollandaise is emulsied, about 2 minutes. Adjust con sistency with hot water as needed until sauce slowly drips from a spoon. Add 1 tablespoon whole-grain mus tard and 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill to hollandaise and pulse until combined but not smooth, about 10 pulses. Season with salt and extra cayenne to taste.

AroundOsceola.com Perfectly roasted salmon requires hot oven, hot pan CITIZEN TRIBUNE FoodEEE-2 Wednesday, May 9, 2018 Wasabi Cracker-Crusted Salmon is a quick weeknight mealBY SARA MOULTON Associated PressWild salmon season starts very soon, so be on the lookout for it at your local market. But, you say, I can nd salmon at my supermar ket all year-round. Yes, you can, because farmed salmon, which is what you nd fresh at the store all the time, doesnt really have a sea son; wild salmon does. Farmed salmon is raised in a controlled man-made environment; wild salmon is subject to the seasons. You can nd frozen wild salmon year-round. Its ash-frozen, meaning frozen very quickly, which does little damage to the cell structure so the sh is perfect ly good to eat. However, why not buy it fresh when you can? The two types of salmon differ in both avor and texture. Wild salmon has a more robust, distinct salmon taste and is leaner than farmed. It is also higher in ome ga-3 fatty acids, the fat thats so good for us. Farmed salmon has a more subtle avor and higher fat content, which means its more forgiving when its overcooked. This Wasabi Cracker-Crusted Salmon is a ridiculously simple recipe, perfect for a quick week night meal. The sh is rst lath ered with sour cream spiked with hot mustard, topped with crushed wasabi rice crackers and then baked. The general rule for baking sh is to cook it at 400 F for 10 minutes for every inch of thick ness. How do you know when it is done? Stick a knife in it; if a knife goes through it easily, its cooked through. I prefer to slightly under cook salmon, especially the wild variety (the government advises cooking salmon well done) since its so lean, so take it out of the oven when you nd just a little re sistance in the middle of the llet.WASABI CRACKERCRUSTED SALMONStart to nish: 30 minutes (10 minutes hands-on) Servings: 4 1/3 cup sour cream 1 1/2 teaspoons prepared English mustard (Colemans mustard) 1/4 teaspoon packed light brown sugar Kosher salt 35 to 40 wasabi rice crackers Four 6-ounce pieces center-cut salmon llet, skin removed Preheat oven to 400 F. In a bowl, combine the sour cream, mustard and brown sugar. Add salt to taste. Put 35 crackers in a re-sealable plastic bag and coarsely crush them using a rolling pin. (You should have about 1 cup crushed crackers; if not, crush a few more.) Season the salmon on all sides with salt. In a shallow baking pan, arrange the llets in one layer, skinned side down, spread the top of each piece with the sour cream mixture and top with the crushed crackers. Bake the salmon in the top third of the oven for 10 minutes, until barely cooked through. Note: If all you can nd is dried Colemans, follow the instructions on the side of the package to re constitute it. If you cannot nd English mustard, use Dijon mus tard.

APThis April 23, 2018 photo shows wasabi cracker salmon in New York. By Americas Test KitchenThe key to perfectly roast ed salmon is to preheat a bak ing sheet in a very hot oven, then lay the sh on the hot pan and reduce the oven to a gentle 275 degrees to cook. The initial blast of high heat rms the exterior of the salmon and helps to render some of the excess fat. The sh then gently cooks as the oven temperature slowly drops, keeping the meat moist and succulent. To help the fat render, we cut several slits in the skin. For evenly cooked salmon, be sure to cut the pieces the same size; America's Test Kitchen found it easiest to buy a large piece of salmon and cut the llets ourselves.OVEN-ROASTED SALMON FILLETS WITH ALMOND VINAGRETTEServings: 8 Start to nish: 25-30 minutes The consistency of the vin aigrette should be thick and clingy.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) Three Americans detained in North Korea for more than a year are on their way back to the U.S. with Secre tary of State Mike Pompeo, President Donald Trump announced Wednesday in the latest sign of improving relations between the two longtime adversary nations. Trump said on Twitter that Pompeo was "in the air" and was with "the 3 wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so for ward to meeting." The pres ident, who had been hinting about an imminent release, said he would greet them at Andrews Air Force Base at 2 a.m. Thursday. The release of the detain ees came as Pompeo visited North Korea on Wednesday to nalize plans for a histor ic summit between Trump and the North's leader, Kim Jong Un. Trump said on Twitter that there had been a "good meeting with Kim Jong Un," adding: "Date & Place set." North Korea had accused Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, all Korean-Americans, of antistate activities but their ar rests were widely seen as politically motivated and had compounded the dire state of relations over the isolated nation's nuclear weapons. The family of Tony Kim thanked "all those" who worked for his return and also credited Trump for en gaging directly with North Korea. "Mostly we thank God for Tony's safe return," the family said in a state ment, and they urged people to "continue to pray for the people of North Korea and for the release of all who are still being held." White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement that Trump viewed the re lease "as a positive gesture of goodwill." The release capped a dra matic day of diplomacy in Pyongyang for Pompeo. Af ter his 90-minute meeting with Kim Jong Un, he gave reporters a ngers-crossed sign when asked about the prisoners as he returned to his hotel. But it was only af ter a North Korean emissary arrived a bit later to inform him that the release was conrmed. The three had been held for periods ranging between one and two years. They were the latest in a series of Americans who have been detained by North Korea in recent years for seemingly small offenses and typically freed when senior U.S. of cials or statesmen person ally visited to bail them out. The last American to be released before this, college student Otto Warmbier, died in June 2017, days after he was repatriated to the U.S. with severe brain damage. Warmbier was arrested by North Korean authorities in January 2016. He was accused of stealing a propaganda poster and sentenced to 15 years in prison with hard labor. His parents have led a wrongful death lawsuit, accusing the gov ernment of torturing and killing their son. Of the newly released detainees, Kim Dong Chul, a South Korean-born U.S. citizen, had been held the longest. The former Virgin ia resident was sentenced in April 2016 to 10 years in prison with hard labor after being convicted of espionage. He reportedly ran a trade and hotel service company in Rason, a special economic zone on North Korea's border with Russia. The other two detainees hadn't been tried. Kim Hak Song worked in agricultural development at an experimental farm run by the Pyongyang Universi ty of Science and Technolo gy, or PUST. The university is the only privately funded college in North Korea and was founded in 2010 with donations from Christian groups. He was detained last May for alleged antistate activities. Tony Kim, who also uses the name Kim Sang-duk, was detained in April 2017 at the Pyongyang airport. He taught accounting at PUST. He was accused of committing unspecied criminal acts intended to overthrow the government. Pompeo, in his visit, discussed the agenda for a potential Trump-Kim Jong Un summit in his meeting with Kim Yong Chol, the vice chairman of the central committee of North Korea's ruling party. The two sides plan to meet once again to nalize details. No specics were offered although ofcials said Singapore is emerging as the most likely venue. The unprecedented meeting has been slated for this month or early June. Kim Yong Chol noted improved relations between North and South Korea and pushed back against the idea that U.S. pressure led to the likely summit. "This is not a result of sanctions that have been imposed from outside," he said. That contradicted Trump, who has said re peatedly that his pressure tactics brought North Korea to the negotiating table. Pompeo's trip, his second to North Korea this year, had not been publicly dis closed when he ew out of Washington late Monday aboard an Air Force jetliner. Trump announced the mission Tuesday afternoon as he laid out his case for with drawing from a landmark nuclear deal with Iran, an other bitter U.S. adversary. Accompanying Pompeo were a few senior aides, a security detail and two jour nalists one from The Associated Press and one from The Washington Post. Pompeo, who rst trav eled to North Korea as CIA chief in early April, is only the second sitting secretary of state to visit the reclusive nation with which the U.S. is still technically at war. The rst was Madeleine Albright, who went in 2000 as part of an unsuccessful bid to arrange a meeting between then-President Bill Clinton and Kim Jong Un's father, Kim Jong Il. A Trump-Kim meeting seemed a remote possibility just a few months ago when the two leaders were trad ing threats and insults over North Korea's development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missile tests. But mo mentum for diplomacy built this year as North and South Korea moved to ease tensions, including the North sending a contingent to the Winter Olympics in the South. The Koreas' leaders' held their own summit last month. In March, Trump unexpectedly accepted an offer of talks from Kim after the North Korean dictator agreed to suspend nuclear and missile tests and dis cuss "denuclearization." According to South Ko rea, Kim says he's willing to give up his nukes if the United States commits to a formal end to the Korean War and pledges not to at tack the North. Kim was quoted by Chi na's ofcial news agency Xinhua as saying on Monday, "I hope to build mutual trust with the U.S. through dialogue." He added that a political resolution of ten sions on the Korean Penin sula and denuclearization should proceed in stages, with all sides moving in concert. But his exact demands for relinquishing weapons that his nation spent de cades building remain un clear. Previous U.S. efforts to negotiate an end to the North's nuclear weapons program failed under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush. Pompeo and ofcials traveling with him said the Trump administration would not repeat mistakes of the past, which they described as accepting gradual, incremental and long-term disarmament in exchange for immediate benets. Trump has said that withdrawing U.S. forces from South Korea is "not on the table." Some 28,500 U.S. forces are based in the allied nation, a military presence that has been preserved to deter North Korea since the war ended in 1953 without a peace treaty.

At the same time, farmers in China are being encour aged to plant more soy, ap parently to help offset any shortfall from the United States. Beijing has included soybeans on a list of $50 billion of U.S. exports on which it has said it would impose 25 percent tariffs if the United States follows through on its threats to impose the same level of tariffs on the same value of Chinese goods. The U.S. tariffs could kick in later this month; China would likely retaliate soon after. It can take a month or more for soybean shipments to travel from the U.S. to China. Any soybeans on their way to China now could be hit by the tariff by the time they ar rive. "The Chinese aren't will ing to buy US soybeans with a 25 percent tax hanging over their head," said Dan Basse, president of AgResource, an agricultural research and ad visory rm. "You just don't want the risk." China typically buys most of its soybeans from South American nations such as Brazil and Argentina during spring and early summer. It shifts to U.S. soybeans in the fall. As a result, for now, the cutbacks from the United States are relatively small. But should they persist, it could cause real pain to U.S. farmers. Roughly 60 percent of U.S. soybeans are shipped to China. There might also be a po litical impact: Three of the top ve soybean-exporting states Iowa, Indiana and Nebraska voted for Presi dent Donald Trump in 2016. Illinois, the top soybean exporter, and Minnesota, the third-largest, backed Hillary Clinton. Basse said that it has been roughly three weeks since China has made any major soybean purchases, an unusually long delay. Some Chinese buyers might be showing support for their government in the trade dispute by turning away U.S. soybeans, Basse said. The dispute may also make it seem too risky to buy from the United States over the long run. "The United States could lose the reliable supplier label that we've had these many years," Basse said. Data from the U.S. govern ment data show that sales of soybeans have fallen from about 255,000 metric tons in the rst week of April, when the trade dispute began, to just 7,900 in the week that ended April 26. Cancellations have also jumped, to more than 140,000 metric tons in the week ending April 26. In the same week last year, there were no canceled sales at all. Some analysts argue that the shifts aren't yet particu larly signicant. China buys most of its soybeans from the United States in the late summer and fall, and then switches to South American sources, mainly Brazil and Argentina, in the spring. So the current market activity doesn't necessarily reect the pattern that would occur dur ing the main buying season. "These numbers we're talking about are pretty mi nor," said John Baize, an economist for the U.S. Soy bean Export Council. The U.S. ships about 35 million metric tons of soy beans to China a year, Baize said. China usually imports about 100 million tons a year and can't import enough from other countries, he said, to abandon the United States as a source. "Where's China going to buy its beans?" Baize asked. That may be true in the short run. But Basse suggests that Brazil has enough land that could be used for soy bean cultivation that it could soon mostly replace the United States as a supplier to China. And if the Chinese mar ket were to be closed to U.S. farmers, they might be able to sell some portion of their soybeans to other markets. Baize said that huge mul tinational companies, such as Cargill and ADM, might, for example, sell more U.S. soybeans to Europe, where they wouldn't face any tariffs, though this likely wouldn't make up for the loss of the Chinese market. At the same time, China is looking more to its own farm ers. Since China announced its potential tariffs on U.S. soy in April, the government has encouraged farmers to cultivate more soybeans. Beginning this month, Chinese farmers say, Beijing reduced corn subsidies and raised an nual soybean subsidies from 2550 yuan ($400) per hectare to 3000 yuan ($470) or more per hectare in major soy bean-producing provinces in northeast China. An adjustment had al ready been planned to help draw down China's substan tial corn stockpiles, so the change wasn't necessarily aimed at U.S. soy growers, analysts say. But the subsidy adjust ment did come with politi cal undertones. Ofcials in major soybean-producing provinces were describing the promotion of local soybeans as "the most important political task in agricultural production at present." Hei longjiang in northeast China announced a pilot project to plant soybeans on over 100,000 new hectares, with an extra 2,250 yuan ($353) subsidy per hectare. The moves are prompt ing farmers like Liu Cong to focus more on growing soy. Liu says he used most of his land to grow corn last year but this year is planting more soybeans. "This is encouraging for farmers," he said in a phone interview. "We're more motivated."

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 NEW YORK (AP) Walmart will soon reach shoppers in India's massive consumer market directly, as it takes control of the on line retailer Flipkart that's known for its ubiquitous delivery drivers on their motorcycles with oversized backpacks. The $16 billion con trolling stake, announced Wednesday, is the larg est acquisition yet by the world's largest retailer. Retail sales are being fueled by a hot economy in India, and both Walmart and Amazon have pushed hard to catch up to Flipkart and become the rst major U.S. retailer to establish a substantial foothold in the country. The move, like Walmart's decision last month to sell its British unit, Asda, reects the company's focus on areas with the potential to grow as it tries to narrow the online gap between itself and Amazon. Online buying in India has exploded in recent years, and Flipkart had net sales of $4.6 billion in its latest scal year, That's a fraction of Walmart's latest annual revenue of $485.8 billion, but the company sees big long-term potential. Walmart believes India, which has 1.3 billion peo ple, could be the world's top ve-e-commerce markets within the next ve years. "We are actively working to shape the portfolio of geographies and businesses we're in, in order to set the company up for success for another generation," Walmart CEO Doug Mc Millon said in a conference call Wednesday. Flipkart is, in some ways, an echo of Amazon. Founded in 2007 by two college friends and former Amazon employees, Flipkart began life as an online bookseller. In a country where many still see paying online with credit or debit cards as risky, Flipkart earned mil lions of customers in its ear ly years by allowing buyers to pay cash on delivery. It now allows for a variety of payments, from credit cards to gift cards to direct bank transfers. Flipkart also focused ear ly on mobile phone users, and in 2016 became the rst app in India to reach 50 mil lion users. The Bangalore-based company has acquired a string of other companies in recent years, from fashion e-commerce company Myntra to mobile payment rm PhonePe. Flipkart now has over 100 million regis tered users and more than 100,000 registered sellers. Flipkart's supply chain arm, eKart, is established more than 800 cities and makes 500,000 deliveries daily. Flipkart's success and In dian law that puts limits on foreign retailers made it an attractive target, and rumors swirled about Amazon also circling Flipkart long after it was reported to be in talks with Walmart. Foreign retailers, including Walmart, have faced years of political resistance to opening brick-and-mor tar outlets in India, where mom-and-pop store owners wield enormous inuence. Walmart's business in In dia was previously focused on small businesses. Its Best Price stores, owned and op erated by its India division, are only open to members that are all licensed businesses. Whether the Flipkart deal signals a change remains unclear, but the Flipkart purchase gives Walmart far more inuence in India both politically and economically and positions it to shift quicker into retail outlets if the regulatory landscape changes. Walmart will now own about 77 percent of Flip kart, with the rest held by some existing shareholders, including co-founder Binny Bansal, Tencent Holdings, Tiger Global Management and Microsoft Corp. The acquisition surpasses Walmart's $10.8 billion deal to buy Britain's Asda in 1999 and its acquisition two years ago of online retailer Jet.com for more than $3 billion. The deal hasn't gone down well with the tens of millions of small traders who for years used political muscle to slow the arrival of international retailers. It is "a clear attempt to control and dominate the retail trade of India by Walmart," the Confederation of All India Traders said, adding that it would encourage predatory pric ing, hurt Indian businesses and create an uneven playing eld. The group says it represents some 60 million businesses. Meanwhile, Amazon is also still ghting hard in India, with founder Jeff Bezos crowing last month that Amazon.in had the mostdownloaded shopping app in India for 2017. "Amazon.in is the fastest growing marketplace in India, and the most visited site on both desktop and mobile," Bezos said in a let ter to shareholders. The global stakes for both Amazon and Walmart are high. Walmart, which operates stores under vari ous banners in 27 countries outside the U.S., has faced strong headwinds in its out ward expansion. In China, where more than 700 million people are online, it has struggled to compete with homegrown online giants like Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. and lo cal retail chains like Sun Art Retail Group Ltd. Walmart opened its rst store in Chi na in 1996 and has just over 400 stores now. It also has a strategic alliance with Ali baba's rival, JD.com. Ama zon also faces stiff competi tion in China from Alibaba and JD.com. Walmart closed 60 stores in Brazil, or 10 percent of its outlets two years ago as it tries to restructure its business. For the opportunity in India, Walmart will absorb some short-term pain. It expects earnings for the cur rent scal year to be hurt by 25 to 30 cents per share. "This is clearly an invest ment for the future," said Charlie O'Shea, Moody's lead retail analyst in a note. Shares of Walmart Inc. dropped more than 3 per cent in trading Wednesday.

Authorities had ordered nearly 2,000 residents to leave the two communities in the mostly rural district of Puna on Hawaii's Big Island last Thursday. But some ignored the order and stayed to watch over their property. But on Tuesday, the emergence of the two new vents prompted Hawaii County to issue a cellphone alert ordering stragglers in the Lanipuna Gar dens neighborhood to get out immediately. Police followed up with personal visits. Ofcers found a number of people still at their residences but there were no sign of holdouts later, said Talmadge Magno, the administrator for Hawaii County Civil Defense. Edwin Montoya, 76, had planned to stay to care for animals and keep looters away from his family's property in the nearby Leilani Estates. But he was forced to evacuate after the new ssures emerged, including one just a mile (1.6 kilometers) away. "I'm in my truck right now on my way up the road," he said. "The police came down here and made me." Both communities are in a forested, remote part of the Big Island on the eastern ank of Kilauea volcano, which has been erupting continuously since 1983. In recent years the vol cano has mostly released lava in hard-to-reach ar eas inside a national park or along the coastline. But last week, vents popped open and released lava, gas and steam inside resi dential neighborhoods. There's no indication when the eruption might stop, or how far the lava might spread. There were about 1,700 residents in Leilani Estates and a few hundred in Lanipuna Gardens before last week. Andrew Nisbet has no idea what's happened to his house since he left it last week. "My home is right in the line of the major breakouts so maybe, maybe not." he said Monday during a community meeting. Authorities urged Scott Wiggers to evacuate, but he refused. "I'm in the safest part in the subdivision. There's no threat to my house whatsoever," said Wiggers, a tour guide. Wiggers said he wasn't leaving his home on the outskirts of the evacuation zone because he worried that if he did, he wouldn't be able to get back in. But he's prepared in case the situation takes a turn. "I am packed. My truck is loaded. I'm not a dumbdumb. If I see a threat, I'm out of here," he said. Ofcials warn that lava could ow downhill and burn areas that don't cur rently face danger and that toxic volcanic gas could kill people, especially the elderly and those with breathing problems. Hawaii Gov. David Ige, a Democrat, told evacuees he has called the White House and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to tell ofcials that he believes the state will need help to deal with the volcano on the Big Island. There are 14 lava-andgas producing ssures in Leilani Estates, after the two new ones formed Tuesday. But the ow of lava is not constant. Thirty six structures have been destroyed and 26 of them have been conrmed as homes. Aer ial surveys have not deter mined whether the rest of the structures are homes or other types of buildings.

Thursday, April 26, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E5 DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) Israel, Saudi Arabia and Iran's other rivals have long wanted to scuttle the nuclear deal, which they see as undermin ing the strategy they say the world should be taking: a tough, confrontational stance against Tehran's ambitions in the region. But the deal's unravelling could backre and spark even more unrest in the Mid dle East. Also, if Iran follows with an all-out revival of its nuclear program, Saudi Ara bia has threatened to launch a nuclear weapons program of its own in response. Traditional foes Saudi Ara bia and Israel both U.S. al lies have found common ground as critics of the 2015 deal, which was brokered by Iran and the ve permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, Germany and the European Union. President Donald Trump's decision Tuesday to with draw from the accord doesn't mean the deal's immediate collapse the Europeans still back it, and much de pends on how Iran reacts. But it does deeply weaken the agreement and could open the way for the U.S.'s regional allies to take a more aggressive approach on Iran. The leaders of France, Germany and Britain said Trump's decision to leave the accord is a threat to global efforts to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons, but Saudi Arabia and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the move. Netanyahu actively sought to scuttle the deal from the start, even when it was still being brokered. He has bluntly said the world would be better off without any deal than with what he calls the "fatally awed" agreement reached during the Obama administration. He has pushed for con frontation against Iran as the Shiite-led nation builds up its military presence in neigh boring Syria in support of President Bashar Assad. Ne tanyahu warns Iran will use its troops and weaponry there to threaten Israel. "We are determined to block Iran's aggression against us even if this means a struggle. Better now than later," he said this week at a Cabinet meeting. Israel is suspected of being behind strikes on Iranian bas es in Syria in recent weeks that killed a number of Ira nian and Syrian troops. Lead ers in Iran have been cautious not to retaliate against Israeli provocations at a time when the nuclear deal still has backing from other major world powers. That could change if the deal breaks down. Israeli security ofcials say the military already has gone on heightened alert this week, fearing an Iranian reprisal. Yoel Guzansky, a senior researcher at Israel's Institute for National Security Studies, believes the current deal has "many, many problems," but says there are consequences to walking away from it, including the possibility of escalating violence and insta bility in the region. "Not just in Syria but also in the Gulf and elsewhere. It could mean a more volatile Middle East, absolutely," he said. Supporters of the deal say it places strict limits on Iran's nuclear facilities that make it unable to produce a bomb during the lifetime of the deal. U.N. inspectors have repeatedly conrmed that Iran is abiding by the accord's terms. Critics of the deal object to a sunset provision that would allow Iran to resume enrich ing uranium at high levels in 15 years, unless an extension or longer-term deal is negoti ated. Europe could join the U.S. in re-imposing sanctions in retaliation if it does so. Opponents also point to issues that are not addressed in the deal, such as Iran's ballistic missile program, its support for militias in the region and its expanding in uence. The deal's architects say those issues can be nego tiated separately and should not be allowed to wreck an accord that halted progress toward a bomb. Saudi Arabia is also more aggressively confronting Iran on multiple fronts under the directives of King Salman's son and heir, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who has consolidated power in the kingdom. Prince Mohammed said in a recent CBS interview that if Iran develops a nuclear bomb, the kingdom would "without a doubt" follow suit as soon as possible. Israel is widely believed to have a nuclear arsenal of its own, though it has never publicly acknowledged it. The Sunni-ruled kingdom, which is ghting Shiite reb els known as Houthis in Yemen, accuses Iran of supply ing the Houthis with ballistic missiles that have targeted the kingdom, including the capital, Riyadh. Likewise, Israeli airstrikes in Syria are believed to have targeted shipments of Iranian missiles bound for Lebanon's Hezbol lah group. Columnists in state-linked Saudi media outlets have grown increasingly hawkish as pressure mounts on Iran. Saudi journalist Mashari Althaydi wrote in a column published on the Al-Arabiya news website that Iran's possession of nuclear weapons would make it necessary for Saudi Arabia to possess similar weapons for deterrence. Mohammed Al-Shaikh, a Saudi writer, called for stirring up "everything that would domestically distract" Iran from harming Saudi se curity and stability. Despite strong reservations about the deal, Saudi Arabia tepidly supported it in pub lic when it was rst reached, seemingly as a gesture to President Barack Obama. Still, Obama's rapprochement with Iran cooled ties between Riyadh and Wash ington. The kingdom has since wholeheartedly embraced Trump and his tough talk. Thomas Lippman, an ex pert on Saudi Arabia and Middle Eastern affairs, said he fails to see how the king dom benets from the deal collapsing. "The Saudis really need to be careful. Iran has three times Saudi Arabia's popula tion, and it has battle-tested armed forces and it has an ally in the Houthis in Ye men," he said. "As far as I can tell, there is in fact a struggle for the fu ture of Iran going on among Iranians ... Let that struggle play itself out," Lippman added. Israel, meanwhile, continues to try and build interna tional pressure against Iran. "Israel for many years now has been preparing for many scenarios vis-a-vis Iran... Israel is not sitting quietly not doing anything," said Guzansky, the Israeli researcher, who is a former Iran analyst on the prime minister's Na tional Security Council. Although Israel has never acknowledged it, its Mossad spy agency is widely believed to be behind the as sassinations of at least ve Iranian nuclear scientists in the years preceding the 2015 negotiations. Last week, Ne tanyahu showed off what he said were tens of thousands of secret documents about the Iranian nuclear program stolen by the Mossad. Many believe Netanyahu showed off the trove of information in part to send a message to Iran about his intelligence agency's capabilities. KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) Suicide bombers struck two police stations in Afghanistan's capital on Wednesday, killing at least seven people and wound ing 17, ofcials said. Interior Minister Wais Ahmad Barmak said a total of eight suicide bombers took part in the attacks, one of which was claimed by the Islamic State group and the other by the Taliban. In the rst attack, in western Kabul, the attackers hurled hand grenades and blew themselves up, setting part of the station on re, Barmak said, add ing that a third suicide bomber was shot and killed by police. He said two po lice were killed in the attack and two police and a civilian were wounded. IS claimed the attack in a brief statement carried by its Aamaq news agency. The second attack un folded in the city center, where a suicide bomber struck the entrance to a police station in order to clear the way for another four bombers. Barmak said "two or three" more attackers were holed up in a near by building, trading re with security forces. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement sent to media. Najib Danish, spokesman for the Interior Minis try, said the violence ended after almost seven hours. Public Health Ministry spokesman Wahid Majroh said a total of seven people were killed and 17 wounded in the attacks. Both the Taliban and IS frequently target Afghanistan's Western-backed government and security forc es. Twin suicide bombings claimed by IS last week killed at least 25 people, including nine journalists who had rushed to the scene of the rst attack. It was the deadliest assault on reporters since the fall of the Taliban in 2001. Elsewhere in Afghanistan, the Taliban advanced on a district compound, ofcials said Wednesday, with one reporting the cap ture of the northern district by the insurgents and another saying heavy ghting was still underway. The battle for the com pound in the Bilchirgh dis trict, in the northern Faryab province, came a day after the insurgents captured the district compound in the remote Tala wa Barfak dis trict, in the northern Bagh lan province. The Taliban have captured several dis tricts in dif ferent parts of the country from Afghan security forces since 2014, when the U.S. and NATO formally concluded their combat mission and shifted to a supporting role. Mohammad Hashim, a member of parliament from Faryab province, said the Taliban captured the district headquarters in Bilchirgh early Wednesday after more than 40 secu rity forces retreated under heavy re. He said the Tali ban also captured several villages nearby. Provincial police spokesman Ab dul Karim Yuresh said the ghting is still underway and that government forces still hold the compound. The Taliban issued a statement saying they control the district and claiming to have killed 10 secu rity forces. Elsewhere in Afghanistan, the Taliban attacked a school being used as a voter registration center, killing eight soldiers in the latest in a series of attacks targeting preparations for elections later this year. Abdul Aziz Beg, head of the governing council in the western Badghis province, said two other soldiers were wounded and one is missing. "There are many areas in the province under a high security threat, and this site was one of those areas," he said, adding that the center was some 30 kilometers (20 miles) west of the pro vincial capital of Qala-e Now. In the eastern Nangarhar province, a rocket red by insurgents struck a mar ket, killing two people and wounding 19, according to Attahullah Khogyani, spokesman for the pro vincial governor. He said another four other civil ians were killed and 15 wounded in a gunbattle in the same district, in which two insurgents were killed and seven wounded. It was unclear who was behind the attacks, but the Taliban and an Islamic State af liate are both active in the province.

Page E6, CITIZEN TRIBUNE HealthEEE-2 Tuesday, May 8, 2018 Genetic sleuthing bolsters food poisoning searchesBY MIKE STOBBE AP Medical WriterATLANTA (AP) Dis ease hunters are using genet ic sequencing in their inves tigation of the ongoing food poisoning outbreak linked to romaine lettuce, a technique that is revolutionizing the de tection of germs in food. The genetic analysis is be ing used to bolster investiga tions and in some cases connect the dots between what were once seemingly unrelated illnesses. It also is uncovering previously un fathomed sources of food poisoning, including one outbreak from apples dipped in caramel. So far, most of the work has largely focused on one germ, listeria. But it is expanding. By the end of this year, labs in all 50 states are expected to also be us ing genetic sequencing for much more common causes of food poisoning outbreaks, including salmonella and the E. coli bacteria linked to re cent lettuce outbreak. That means the number of identiable outbreaks are likely to explode even if the number of illnesses don't. "There are a lot of out breaks where they don't con nect the dots. Now they're going to be connected," said Michael Doyle, a retired University of Georgia pro fessor who is an expert on foodborne illness. Not only that: The new DNA testing is enabling disease detectives to spot food contamination before anyone is aware of a result ing human illness the equivalent of starting a mur der investigation by nding a gun rst and then looking for someone with a gunshot wound. "It's turning around how outbreaks are gured out," said Bill Marler, a prominent Seattle lawyer who has made a business of suing companies whose products sicken people. Marler added that the pro gram is in its early stages and it's too early to call it a success. But he said the new approach has the potential to transform how and when outbreaks come to light. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is driving the program. It esti mates that 48 million Americans get sick and 3,000 die from food poisoning each year. The new technique relies on whole genome sequencing, which has been used in biology for more than two decades. The laboratory pro cess determines nearly all of an organism's DNA, the genetic material needed to build and maintain an organ ism. And scientists use soft ware to compare the DNA of specimens to see if they are the same strain and how resistant they are to current medicines. The technique allows the analysis to become faster, cheaper and more automated, said Dr. Robert Tauxe, one of the CDC's leading ex perts on food poisoning. Plans are to use the technology against several germs that cause food poisoning, but so far all the work has concentrated on listeria. The bacteria cause around 1,600 illnesses each year, a tiny fraction of U.S. foodborne disease diagnoses. But it is a particularly lethal infection, killing nearly one in ve people who get it. Historically, listeriacaused outbreaks were known as "the graveyard of epidemiology." It could take weeks for people to develop symptoms, meaning food evidence was discarded and some of the patients were dead by the time ofcials began to sort things out. From 1983 to 1997, only ve listeria outbreaks were identied in the United States. They were obvious and large with a median of 54 cases per outbreak. That's how it was with other food poisoning outbreaks, too. "Most foodborne outbreaks were detected because it happened in one place," like in a town where a popular restaurant's cus tomers grew ill, Tauxe said. Outbreaks were investigated by asking people what they ate before they got sick, and then comparing notes to see what patients had in common. The eld took a big step in the 1990s, after a frighten ing outbreak erupted in the Seattle area. Four deaths and more than 700 illnesses in four states eventually were traced to undercooked Jack in the Box restaurant ham burgers contaminated with E. coli. The outbreak prodded the CDC to develop a program that relied on a technique called pulsed-eld gel elec trophoresis in which investi gators could look at a germ's DNA in clumps. It helped health ofcials more easily link illnesses, but it was im perfect: It couldn't make ex act matches and sometimes missed when cases were re lated. Then came whole genome sequencing. The CDC began using the technique in food poisoning investigations in 2013. Initially state labs sent samples to a CDC lab in Atlanta for testing. Now, the CDC is working to get labs in all 50 states up and running. Last year, the federal agency awarded about $32 million to state and city health departments to work on foodborne, waterborne and fungal disease out breaks. That included $12 million to help them set up whole genome sequencing technology. Since whole genome se quencing began, the CDC says it's catching more listeria outbreaks with a food source identied. By that measure, the number rose from about two per year to an average of more than six per year from 2014 to 2016. One of the rst success stories came a couple of weeks after Halloween in 2014, when listeria cases began popping up in Ari zona, New Mexico and the Midwest. Through whole genome sequencing, investigators discovered about three dozen people had been sickened. In interviews, patients and their families didn't mention foods commonly associated with listeria. But most did say they had eaten packaged caramel apples. Scientists hadn't considered them a threat, because apples and caramel aren't hospitable to listeria individually. But it turns out that putting a stick in a caramelcovered apple gives germs a door into tiny spaces be tween caramel and the apple's skin. Besides ngering foods previously seen as unthreat ening, whole genome se quencing has the potential to turn investigations around: In several outbreaks recently, germs found in food plant in spections prompted product recalls before anyone knew about an outbreak. Then whole genome sequencing helped nd and conrm illnesses. In 2015, state ofcials in South Carolina and Texas found listeria in tests of Blue Bell-brand ice cream products. Investigators used pulsed-eld gel electrophoresis to nd 11 illnesses with a similar genetic pattern, but whole genome sequencing denitively linked 10 and caused one to be tossed out as unrelated. Some of the ill nesses had happened as far back as 2010. "They're picking up cases that are ve years old. This is revolutionary," Doyle said. Whole genome sequencing is becoming increasingly important, but it's not yet the basis of outbreak solving. It was used in the current in vestigation of E. coli bacteria found in romaine lettuce grown in Arizona, which has sickened at least 84 people in 19 states, according to a CDC update released Wednesday. But "that's not how we rst detected the outbreak," said Matthew Wise, a CDC food poisoning investigator. It was more crucial in an investigation last year of a 21-state salmonella outbreak that ultimately was linked to ground beef. Whole genome sequencing allowed health ofcials to wade through a wave of cases to parse out the illnesses that were most closely matched and then look for a common origin, Wise said. "Using our previous technology," Wise said, "we would have had a really dif cult time solving that one."

About 1 in 59 U.S. chil dren were identied as having autism in 2014, according to a Thursday report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that focused on 8-year-old children. That's up from 1 in 68 children in both 2010 and 2012. White children are di agnosed with autism more often than black or Hispanic children, but the gap has closed dramatically. Autism used to be 20 per cent higher in white kids than black children, and that difference shrank to 10 percent. The gap between white and Hispanic kids shrank from 50 percent to 20 percent. That increased recog nition in minority kids is likely a big reason for the overall increase, CDC re searchers said. The causes of autism aren't well understood, and it's not clear if other fac tors might also be at play like, for example, more couples having babies later in life, said Thomas Frazier, chief science ofcer for the advocacy organiza tion Autism Speaks. "There's still a ton of work to do to better un derstand why this is happening," Frazier said of the increase. There are no blood or biological tests for autism. It's identied by making judgments about a child's behavior. Traditionally, autism was diagnosed only in kids with severe language and social impairments and unusual, repetitious behaviors. But the denition gradually expanded, and autism is now shorthand for a group of milder, related conditions. The new CDC report is based on a tracking system in 11 states that focuses on 8-year-olds, because most cases are diagnosed by that age. The researchers check health and school records to see which children meet criteria for autism, even if they haven't been formally diagnosed. It is one of three autism estimates by the CDC but is considered the most rigorous. "It's the gold standard," said Alison Singer, presi dent of the Autism Science Foundation, an autism ad vocacy and philanthropy organization. The researchers gathered data from Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Geor gia, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin, casting a net that included about 300,000 children. The 1 in 59 was an average: It was as high as 1 in 34 in New Jersey, and as low as about 1 in 75 in ve states. Why the difference? Researchers said rates tend to be higher in states where they can access more records. For years, the estimate was increasing in leaps and bounds, though it wasn't clear why. A report released in 2007 put the estimate at 1 in 150, or the equivalent of about 1 child in every 5 or 6 classrooms. The new 1-in-59 gure translates to 1.7 percent. Heather Cody Hazlett, a University of North Carolina psychologist, called the slight increase from 2012 to 2014 unsurprising. She researches new ways to do spot autism earlier. What's discouraging, she said, is that fewer than half of autistic children are di agnosed by the time they turn 4. There is still a lag be tween when parents rst be come concerned and when kids are diagnosed. Many doctors may be reluctant to jump to an autism diagno sis in a younger child, be cause they are "trying to be cautious and not alarmist," Hazlett said. But that can lead to a delay in therapy or other ser vices. The CDC's Deborah Christensen, one of the study's authors, said: "We need to do more work to make sure that children with developmental con cerns are evaluated quickly."More kids have autism, better diagnosis may be the reason

Thursday, April 26, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E7 WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump is preparing to tell the world whether he plans to follow through on his threat to pull out of the landmark nuclear accord with Iran and almost surely ensure its collapse. There are no signs that European allies enlisted to "x" the deal have persuaded him to pre serve it. In a burst of last-minute diplomacy, punctuated by a visit by Britain's top dip lomat, the deal's European members gave in to many of Trump's demands, ac cording to ofcials, diplomats and others briefed on the negotiations. Yet they still left convinced he is likely to re-impose sanctions and walk away from the deal he has lambasted since his days as a presi dential candidate. Hanging in the balance Tuesday was the fate of the 2015 nuclear deal struck by the United States, Iran and world powers that lifted most U.S. and inter national sanctions against the country. In return, Iran agreed to restrictions on its nuclear program making it impossible to pro duce a bomb, along with rigorous inspections. If the deal collapses, Iran would be free to re sume prohibited enrichment activities, while businesses and banks do ing business with Iran would have to scramble to extricate themselves or run afoul of the U.S. As they braced for an expected withdrawal, U.S. ofcials were dusting off plans for how to sell a pullout to the public and explain its complex nancial rami cations, said the ofcials and others, who weren't authorized to speak ahead of an announcement and requested anonymity. Building up anticipation for the big reveal, Trump announced on Twitter he would disclose his decision at 2 p.m., with an announcement set for the Diplomatic Room of the White House. With uncharacteristic discipline, he kept the decision con ned to a small group within the White House National Security Council, leaving even many of his aides guessing what he had decided. There was at least as much guessing in Iran, where many are deeply concerned about how Trump's decision could affect the already strug gling economy. In Tehran, President Hassan Rouhani sought to calm nerves, smiling as he appeared at a petroleum expo. He didn't name Trump directly, but emphasized that Iran continued to seek "engage ment with the world." "It is possible that we will face some problems for two or three months, but we will pass through this," Rouhani said. An immense web of sanctions, written agree ments and staggered dead lines make up the accord. So Trump effectively has several pathways to pull the United States out of the deal by reneging on its commitments. Under the most likely scenario, Trump will allow sanctions on Iran's central bank intended to target its oil exports to kick back in, rather than waiv ing them once again on Saturday, the next deadline for renewal, said the indi viduals briefed on Trump's deliberations. Then the Trump administration would give those who are doing business with Iran a six-month grace period to wind down business and avoid beaching of those sanctions. Depending on how Trump sells it either as an irreversible U.S. pull out, or one nal chance to save it the deal could ostensibly be strengthened during those six months in a last-ditch effort to per suade Trump to change his mind. The rst 15 months of Trump's presidency have been lled with many such "last chances" for the Iran deal in which he's punted the decision for another few months, and then another. Other U.S. sanctions don't require a decision until later, including those on specic Iranian business es, sectors and individuals that will snap back into place in July unless Trump signs another waiver. A move on Tuesday to re store those penalties ahead of the deadline would be the most aggressive move Trump could take to close the door to staying in the deal. Even Trump's secretary of state and the U.N. agen cy that monitors nuclear compliance agree that Iran, so far, has lived up to its side of the deal. But the deal's critics, such as Isra el, the Gulf Arab states and many Republicans, say it's a giveaway to Tehran that ultimately paves the path to a nuclear-armed Iran several years in the future. Iran, for its part, has been coy in predicting its response to a Trump with drawal. For weeks, Iran's foreign minister had been saying that a re-imposition of U.S. sanctions would render the deal null and void, leaving Tehran little choice but to abandon it as well. But on Monday, Rouhani said Iran could stick with it if the Euro pean Union, whose econo mies do far more business with Iran than the U.S., offers guarantees that Iran would keep beneting. It is far from clear that Europe can credibly pro vide that assurance. Even with the deal in place, Iran complained constantly that European banks and businesses were staying away out of fear they'd be punished by the United States. The global nan cial system is so intercon nected and so dependent on New York that it's near ly impossible to conduct business that doesn't touch the U.S. nancial system. That gives Trump incredible leverage if he threatens that anyone doing business with Iran will be cut off from the United States. For the Europeans, a Trump withdrawal would also constitute dispiriting proof that trying to appease the mercurial Amer ican president is an exer cise for naught. The three EU members of the deal Britain, France and Germany were insistent from the start that the deal could not be re-opened. After all, it was the U.S. that brokered the agreement in 2015 and rallied the world behind it. But all that was under President Barack Obama, whose global legacy Trump has worked to chip away at since taking ofce. So the Europeans reluc tantly backed down, only slightly at rst, agreeing to discuss an "add-on" agreement that wouldn't change the underlying nu clear deal, but would add new restrictions on Iran to address what Trump had identied as its shortcom ings. Trump wanted to deter Iran's ballistic mis sile program and other destabilizing actions in the region. He also wanted more rigorous nuclear in spections and to extend the deal's restrictions on Iranian enrichment and reprocessing, rather than let them phase out after about a decade. Negotiating an add-on agreement, rather than revising the existing deal, had the added benet of not requiring the formal consent of Iran or the other remaining members: Russia and China. The idea was that even if they balked at the West's impo sitions, Iran would be like ly to comply anyway so as to keep enjoying lucrative sanctions relief. Although the U.S. and the Europeans made progress on ballistic missiles and inspections, there were disagreements over extending the life of the deal and over how to trig ger additional penalties if Iran were found violating the new restrictions, U.S. ofcials and European diplomats have said. The Europeans agreed to yet more concessions in the nal days of negotiating ahead of Trump's decision, the ofcials added. It was not clear what led Trump, whose aides hadn't expected him to make a decision until week's end, to move up his decision to Tuesday. But on Twitter, he targeted former Secretary of State John Kerry, who led Obama's efforts to broker the deal and has been making the case pub licly and privately for its survival. "Stay away from nego tiations John, you are hurt ing your country!" Trump wrote.

Page E8, PARIS (AP) Army wife Angela Ricketts was soaking in a bubble bath in her Colorado home, leang through a memoir, when a message appeared on her iPhone: "Dear Angela!" it said. "Bloody Valentine's Day!" "We know everything about you, your husband and your children," the Facebook message continued, claiming that the hack ers operating under the ag of Islamic State militants had penetrated her computer and her phone. "We're much closer than you can even imagine." Ricketts was one of ve military wives who re ceived death threats from the self-styled CyberCaliphate on the morning of Feb. 10, 2015. The warn ings led to days of anguished media coverage of Islamic State militants' online reach. Except it wasn't IS. The Associated Press has found evidence that the women were targeted not by jihadists but by the same Russian hacking group that intervened in the American election and exposed the emails of Hillary Clin ton's presidential campaign chairman, John Podesta. The false ag is a case study in the difculty of assigning blame in a world where hackers routinely borrow one another's iden tities to throw investigators off track. The operation also parallels the online disinformation campaign by Russian trolls in the months leading up to the U.S. election in 2016. Links between Cyber Caliphate and the Rus sian hackers typically nicknamed Fancy Bear or APT28 have been doc umented previously. On both sides of the Atlantic, the consensus is that the two groups are closely related. But that consensus never ltered through to the women involved, many of whom were convinced they had been targeted by Islamic State sympathizers right up until the AP contacted them. "Never in a million years did I think that it was the Russians," said Ricketts, an author and advocate for veterans and military fami lies. She called the revela tion "mind blowing." "It feels so hilarious and insidious at the same time." 'COMPLETELY NEW GROUND' As Ricketts scrambled out of the tub to show the threat to her husband, nearly identical messages reached Lori Volkman, a deputy prosecutor based in Oregon who had won fame as a blogger after her husband deployed to the Middle East; Ashley Broadway-Mack, based in the Washington, D.C., area and head of an association for gay and lesbian military family members; and Amy Bushatz, an Alaska-based journalist who covers spouse and family issues for Military.com. Liz Snell, the wife of a U.S. Marine, was at her husband's retirement cer emony in California when her phone rang. The Twit ter account of her char ity, Military Spouses of Strength, had been hacked. It was broadcasting public threats not only to herself and the other spouses, but also to their families and then-rst lady Michelle Obama. Snell ew home to Michigan from the ceremo ny, took her children and checked into a Comfort Inn for two nights. "Any time somebody threatens your family, Mama Bear comes out," she said. The women determined they had all received the same threats. They were also all quoted in a CNN piece about the hacking of a military Twitter feed by CyberCaliphate only a few weeks earlier. In it, they had struck a deant tone. After they received the threats, they suspected that CyberCaliphate singled them out for retaliation. The women refused to be intimidated. "Fear is exactly what at the time we perceived ISIS wanted from military families," said Volkman, using another term for the Islamic State group. Volkman was quoted in half a dozen media outlets; Bushatz wrote an article describing what happened; Ricketts, interviewed as part of a Fox News segment devoted to the menace of radical Islam, told TV host Greta Van Susteren that the nature of the threat was changing. "Military families are prepared to deal with vio lence that's directed toward our soldiers," she said. "But having it directed to ward us is just complete new ground." 'WE MIGHT BE SUR PRISED' A few weeks after the spouses were threatened, on April 9, 2015, the signal of French broadcaster TV5 Monde went dead. The station's network of routers and switches had been knocked out and its internal messaging system disabled. Pasted across the station's website and Face book page was the kef yeh-clad logo of CyberCa liphate. The cyberattack shocked France, coming on the heels of jihadist massacres at the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a ko sher supermarket that left 17 dead. French leaders decried what they saw as another blow to the coun try's media. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said evidence suggested the broadcaster was the victim of an act of terror. But Guillaume Poupard, the chief of France's cyber security agency, pointedly declined to endorse the minister's comments when quizzed about them the day after the hack. "We should be very pru dent about the origin of the attack," he told French radio. "We might be sur prised." Government experts por ing over the station's stricken servers eventually vin dicated Poupard's caution, nding evidence they said pointed not to the Middle East but to Moscow. Speaking to the AP last year, Poupard said the attack "resembles a lot what we call collectively APT28." Russian ofcials in Washington and in Moscow did not respond to questions seeking comment. The Kremlin has repeatedly denied masterminding hacks against Western targets. 'THE MEDIA PLAYED RIGHT INTO IT' Proof that the military wives were targeted by Russian hackers is laid out in a digital hit list provided to the AP by the cybersecu rity company Secureworks last year. The AP has previ ously used the list of 4,700 Gmail addresses to outline the group's espionage cam paign against journalists defense contractors and U.S. ofcials More recent AP research has found that Fancy Bear, which Se cureworks dubs "Iron Twi light," was actively trying to break into the military wives' mailboxes around the time that CyberCaliph ate struck. Lee Foster, a manager with cybersecurity com pany FireEye, said the repeated overlap between Russian hackers and Cy berCaliphate made it all but certain that the groups were linked. "Just think of your basic probabilities," he said. CyberCaliphate faded from view after the TV5 Monde hack, but the overthe-top threats issued by the gang of make-believe militants found an echo in the anti-Muslim sentiment whipped up by the St. Pe tersburg troll farm an organization whose opera tions were laid bare by a U.S. special prosecutor's indictment earlier this year. The trolls Russian employees paid to seed American social media with disinformation often hyped the threat of Islamic State militants to the United States. A few months before CyberCaliphate rst won attention by hijacking various me dia organizations' Twitter accounts, for example, the trolls were spreading false rumors about an Islamic State attack in Louisiana and a counterfeit video ap pearing to show an American soldier ring into a Quran The AP has found no link between CyberCaliphate and the St. Petersburg trolls, but their aims ap peared to be the same: keep tension at a boil and radical Islam in the headlines. By that measure, Cy berCaliphate's targeting of media outlets like TV5 Monde and the military spouses succeeded handily. Ricketts, the author, said that by planting threats with some of the most vo cal members of the military community, CyberCaliphate guaranteed maximum press coverage. "Not only did we play right into their hands by freaking out, but the me dia played right into it," she said. "We reacted in a way that was probably exactly what they were hop ing for."

It was difcult to imme diately tell from aerial sur veys how many are homes and how many are other uninhabited structures, said Wil Okabe, acting mayor of Hawaii County. Cheryl Grifth's Leilani Estates subdivision was ordered to evacuate after lava from Kilauea volcano burst through cracks in the ground, destroying homes. But the 61-year-old did not leave. As lava crawled down Leilani Road in a hiss ing, popping mass, Grifth stood in its path and placed a plant in the crack in the ground as an offering to the Native Hawaiian volcano goddess, Pele. "I love this place, and I've been around the volcano for a while," Grifth said. "I'm just not one to rush off." The Puna district is a region of mostly unpaved roads of volcanic rock about a 30-minute drive from the coastal town of Hilo. Puna has thick jungle as well as dark elds of lava rock from past eruptions. The gently sloping volcano dips from its summit to Pu na's white sand beaches and jagged sea cliffs. The region has macada mia nut farms and other agriculture along with mul timillion-dollar homes with manicured lawns. Other houses are modest, sitting on small lots with old cars and trucks scattered about. For many people outside Hawaii, it's hard to under stand why anyone would risk living near an active volcano with such destruc tive power. But the people here are largely self-sufcient and understand the risks of their location. Amber Makuakane, a 37-year-old teacher and sin gle mother of two, lost her three-bedroom house to the lava. She grew up here and lived in the house for nine years. Her parents also live in Leilani Estates. "The volcano and the lava it's always been a part of my life," she said. "It's dev astating ... but I've come to terms with it." Grifth said that is the hardest part of this lifestyle they won't be able to re coup losses. Moments later, an explosion came from a nearby burning house. Homeowners use rainwater-catch tanks and cess pools or septic tanks. Many rely on solar power, and some live entirely off the electrical grid. Sam Knox, 65, who was born in Hawaii and now lives just a few hundred feet from a volcanic ssure, said he decided not to leave, de spite the nearby explosions and the lava being hurled into the sky and owing across his neighbor's property. "It was roaring sky high. It was incredible. ... Rocks were ying out of the ground," he said. Much of the area lled with lava in just four hours. Kilauea (pronounced kill-ah-WAY'-ah) is one of the world's most active volcanoes and has been erupting continuously since 1983. There's no indication when this particular lava ow might stop or how far it might spread. Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey expect the ow to continue until more magma drains from the system. Hawaii Gov. David Ige, a Democrat, told evacuees Monday that he has called the White House and the Federal Emergency Management Authority to tell ofcials that he believes the state will need federal help to deal with the erupting volcano. On Sunday, some of the evacuees were allowed to return briey to gather medicine, pets, and other neces sities. They will be able to do so each day as long as authorities believe it is safe. Knox has some belong ings packed in case he has to make a fast escape. "I decided to stay because I wanted to experience this in my life," he said. "I'm ready to actually evacuate, but if I don't have to evacu ate, I'm just going to keep staying here because I don't have no other home to go to."Russian hackers posed as IS to threaten military wives

AroundOsceola.com TEHRAN, Iran (AP) It just keeps getting worse for Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. The relatively moderate cleric's signature achievement, the nuclear deal with world powers, may fall apart later this week if President Donald Trump decides to pull America from the ac cord. Iran's economy, which Rouhani promised the deal would bolster, continues to weaken. Meanwhile, Rou hani himself acknowledged his own inability to stop a court's ban of a popular messaging app that helped fuel nationwide protests at the start of the year. All the problems suggest Iran's domestic politics may swing back toward hardliners and further weaken the once-popular president. Some hard-liners have even suggested the country needs a military dictatorship. If that swing happens, it threatens any further rap prochement with the West at a time with Washington appears more on a course toward confrontation. The trends are a sharp contrast from hopes among support ers of the nuclear deal on both sides that the accord would a rst step toward greater dialogue. "What we are witnessing in the society is an expres sion of regret," said Sa degh Zibakalam, a Tehran University political science professor. "If we continue this decline, with no doubt the next parliament will be in the hands of the conser vative hard-line camp and in the next presidential election their candidate will be the winner." It's a surprising turn for the 69-year-old Rouhani. Iranians joyfully took to the streets to celebrate him and the 2015 nuclear deal. He won re-election in a May 2017 landslide in which he garnered even more votes than in his rst campaign, even as Trump was threat ening the deal. But trouble brewed for Rouhani just under the sur face. Reformists those who want wholesale change to the Islamic Republic's theocratic government long have been suspicious of Rouhani, who is very much a member of that sys tem. The hard-line clerics who dominate the judiciary along with powerful forc es like the Revolutionary Guard also have frustrated Rouhani's plans. He has been unable, for example, to carry out his promises to free political leaders from Iran's 2009 Green Move ment, who still remain un der house arrest today. The major concern, how ever, would prove to be Iran's economy. Many criticize Rouhani's administra tion for failing to control rocketing prices for staples like meat, chicken and rice. Everything from taxi rides to haircuts are now more expensive. The Iranian rial has plummeted to 70,000 to the dollar in the black mar ket, compared to an ofcial rate of 42,000. "When the deal was signed some years ago, I thought the situation will be better but it did not happen," said Behrouzi Molaei, a 42-year-old taxi driver. "After the death of the deal, I do not know how Rouhani can x these ever-increas ing problems." Yadollah Kazemi, a 54-year-old worker at a plastics factory, agreed. "Rouhani just comes to the podium and repeats some gures showing the situation is good. It has no meaning for me who has not gotten a salary for months," Kazemi said. "Rouhani can not answer our demands, just like I can't for my three children and my wife." Uncertainty over the nuclear deal only worsens those economic woes. "Whenever you raise the level of uncertainty it has a negative impact on the economy," said Jihad Azour, the International Monetary Fund's Mideast and Central Asia depart ment director. Iran's economic problems gave birth to nationwide protests in December and January. The demonstra tions saw at least 25 people killed and, reportedly, near ly 5,000 arrested. A massive deployment of police and volunteers linked to the hard-line Revolutionary Guard staunched the unrest, but labor strikes and local issues still draw protesters at the local level. During the protests, the government temporarily shut down the popular Tele gram messaging app, which an estimated 40 million Iranians use. Last week, Iran's judiciary ordered all inter net service providers to per manently halt access to the app, drawing popular anger. Rouhani acknowledged his own inability to restore the service, suggesting in an Instagram post those "at the highest level" in the country shut off access. That immediately drew anger as well, even from Ali Motahari, a prominent lawmaker and supporter of Rouhani. "The president should have given the judiciary a constitutional warning over Telegram," Motahari said Sunday. "Allusive speaking is a sign of weakness. Peo ple expect clearness." Some of the anger Rouhani faces could be attrib uted to the disappointment voters have in any presi dent's second term, whether in Iran or elsewhere. In the 2000s, unhappiness with re formist President Moham mad Khatami, also a cleric who sought warm ties with the West, opened the door to the hard-line policies of his successor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. But analysts note Khatami at least kept Iran's economy under control and the U.S. in check as America conducted wars in neighboring Afghanistan and Iraq. Perhaps more concerning to Rouhani and his allies are the growing calls for a "mil itary man" to take over in Iran. While former soldiers and security force members have circled Iran's politics, a military strongman has never emerged to run Iran since its 1979 Islamic Revo lution. "I believe if a military man becomes president, he denitely will be able to salvage the country from its problems," hard-line lawmaker and former Guard commander Mohammad Ali Pourmokhtar recently said. With Iran's next presidential election in 2021, the timing of the comments now have raised eyebrows. "What is happening in the world will happen in Iran, too. People desire dictator ship," said Ebrahim Fayyaz, a political scientist at Tehran's conservative Imam Sadegh University. "People are tired of the current so cial order. There is no po litical power in the country. The continuation of the cur rent situation will lead to the collapse and disintegration of the country."

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has seen his influence wane as his signature achievement, the nuclear deal with world powers, is now under threat from President Donald Trump. Economic problems, as well as some suggesting a military dictatorship for the country, suggest Irans domestic politics may swing back toward hard-liners and further weaken the once-popular president.Iran president's influence wanes as nuclear deal threatenedPutin vows to boost Russian economy as he begins 4th termMOSCOW (AP) Vladimir Putin on Monday launched his fourth term as president with an ambitious call to vault Russia into the top ve global economies by developing its technological products and agricultural ex ports. Putin, who has sought to restore Russia's military and diplomatic prominence on the world stage, focused al most entirely on domestic is sues in his speech after taking the oath of ofce in a vast, vaulted Kremlin hall glitter ing with gold leaf. Improving the economy following a recession partly linked to international sanc tions will be a primary goal of his next six-year term, Putin said. "Russia should be modern and dynamic, it should be ready to accept the call of the times," he said in his inauguration speech to thousands of guests standing in three halls of the Grand Kremlin Palace. Putin later issued an exten sive decree calling for "accel eration of the technological development of the Russian Federation" and "creation of a high-performance exportoriented sector in the basic sectors of the economy, pri marily in manufacturing and the agro-industrial sector." The 65-year-old former KGB agent, who has led Rus sia for all of the 21st century either as president or prime minister, has been criticized for inadequate efforts to diversify the economy from its dependence on oil and gas exports or develop the manu facturing sector. Russia's economy was hit hard by low world oil prices and sanctions connected to Moscow's 2014 annexation of Crimea and military in volvement in the separatist uprising in eastern Ukraine, with the ruble losing half its value between 2014 and 2016. The country recorded an anemic improvement in 2017, with gross domestic product rising 1.5 percent and the ruble recovering some of its value. But the currency dropped about 8 percent again last month after new U.S. sanctions. In the decree, he foresaw Russia becoming one of the world's top ve economies by the end of his term in 2024. That would require boosting GDP by some 50 percent; Russia currently places about 12th in rankings of world economies. Putin made only a brief reference to global affairs in his speech, saying "Russia is a strong, active, inuential participant in international life. The security and defense capability of the country is reliably ensured. We will give these matters the neces sary constant attention." He acknowledged that the challenges facing Rus sia were formidable "but we all remember well that, for more than 1,000 years of history, Russia has often faced epochs of turmoil and trials, and has always revived as a Phoenix, reached heights that others could not." Putin was re-elected in March with 77 percent of the vote. He became acting president on New Year's Eve 1999 following the surprise resig nation of Boris Yeltsin and won election to his rst fouryear term in 2000. Re-elected in 2004, he left ofce in 2008 because of term limits, but was named prime minister and continued to steer the country from that ofce. He returned as president in 2012 when the post was extended to six years. Monday's pomp-lled inauguration was covered in assiduous detail on state tele vision. It showed Putin working at his desk in his shirt sleeves, then donning a suit coat to begin a long, solitary walk through the corridors of the Kremlin's Senate build ing before boarding a limousine for a short drive to the Grand Kremlin Palace. Thousands of guests stood in the three halls for the inauguration. One of the most prominent was former German Chancellor Ger hard Schroeder, who is now chairman of Russia's state oil company Rosneft and one of the most prominent Western voices arguing for an end to sanctions against Russia. Schroeder stood with Prime Minister Dmitry Med vedev, and Putin prominently shook hands with him after the speech. After the ceremony, Pu tin issued an order formally dissolving the Cabinet but nominated Medvedev to serve again as prime minister. The pro-Putin United Russia party that dominates the par liament said it would back Medvedev in a vote Tuesday, Russian news agencies re ported. Medvedev in turn made nominations for several dep uty prime ministers, notably including Finance Minister Anton Siluanov as rst dep uty premier.

CITIZEN TRIBUNE SportsEEE-2 Monday, May 7, 2018 SEATTLE (AP) Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols got his 3,000th hit, reaching the mark with a broken-bat single Friday night against Seattle and becoming the 32nd player in major league history to join the exclusive club. Pujols dumped the single into shallow right eld in the fth inning against Mike Leake. It came on Pujols sixth attempt after getting to 2,999 a day earlier. Pujols received a standing ovation from the crowd at Safeco Field and was given the baseball and rst base as a memento. His teammates all greeted him on the eld before action resumed. The Angels won the game 5-0, and Pujols collected hit No. 3,001 in the ninth inning with a tworun single. I was really excited, but at the same time you still have a game you need to play and you still need to focus to win that game, Pujols said. Thats what I told those guys. Lets go win that game so it can taste a little better with a win. The 38-year-old Pujols nearly got the mark in the rst inning, but his hard liner was right at shortstop Jean Segura. Pujols walked on a 3-2 pitch leading off the fourth inning after fouling off four two-strike pitches. Pujols joined Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Alex Rodriguez as the only players in baseball history with 3,000 hits and 600 homers. Hes the rst player to reach the mark since Adrian Beltre last year against Baltimore. Im aware of the legacy and the people that I tie and am on the same page right now, Pujols said. But at the end of the day its about winning a championship. Nothing would be more special than in September and October and playing in the playoffs and bringing a championship back to the city of Anaheim. Pujols reached the precipice of the milestone earlier this week in Anaheim, getting two hits against Baltimore on Wednesday night including his 620th career homer before getting No. 2,999 on a secondinning double Thursday night. He then came to the plate three times with the chance to hit the mark in front of his standing home crowd. But Pujols couldnt quite do it, eventually ying out to right and deating his eager home fans in the eighth inning of the Angels 12-3 win. Trust me I wanted to do it last night. But it didnt happen last night. It just happened tonight, Pujols said. Ichiro Suzuki reached 3,000 hits in 2016 and also accomplished it on the road. He was in the Seattle clubhouse on Friday night when Pujols joined the club. More than the actual 3,000th hit, I remember the week prior, Suzuki said through a translator before Fridays game. We were home for the whole week. I just had pinchhitting opportunities. Every night was a pinch-hitting opportunity and that was really difcult. I was able to start on the last day of the road trip and getting it then. Pujols became the second Dominican player to reach 3,000 hits by joining Beltre. With Suzuki stepping away this week for the remainder of the 2018 season, Beltre is the only active player with more hits than Pujols. And it may be a while before another player joins the club. The next closest player to 3,000 is Miguel Cabrera, who is more than 300 hits away. After Cabrera is Robinson Cano, nearly 600 hits away from the mark. Few sluggers in baseball history have been more versatile than Pujols, who joins Aaron as the only players with 600 doubles and 600 homers among their 3,000 hits. He is seventh on baseballs career homers list after hitting his 600th last season. Pujols, who was raised in Santo Domingo before moving to New York and Missouri as a teenager, is the sixth foreign-born player to get 3,000 hits along with Suzuki, Rod Carew, Rafael Palmeiro and Roberto Clemente, who also had exactly 3,000 hits. A three-time NL MVP with the St. Louis Cardinals, Pujols joined the Angels in 2012. Carew and Pujols are the only players to record their 3,000th hit with the Angels. Pujols is in the seventh season of the lavish 10-year, $240 million contract that persuaded him to leave the Cardinals, with whom he won two World Series, earned nine All-Star selections and established himself as one of the greatest hitters of his generation. Pujols has been chosen for just one All-Star team and has yet to win a playoff game in Anaheim during his rst six seasons in partnership with two-time AL MVP Mike Trout, but these Angels are off to an encouraging 19-12 start. While he has slowed on the basepaths during the Anaheim chapter of his career, this season also has been rejuvenating for Pujols, who is playing rst base regularly after several years primarily serving as a designated hitter.

The hit was his 3,000th of his career. ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel missed much of spring training when he was back in Boston for his infant daughters second heart surgery and her recovery. Before the team departed last week for what matches their longest scheduled trip this season, and before he got his 300th career save quicker than anyone in MLB history, Kimbrel had 6-month-old Lydia Joy at Fenway Park. She was smiling, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. The way hes carrying her, its unreal what hes doing. Kimbrel got his 300th save Saturday night, about three weeks before his 30th birthday, in his 494th career game and 330th save opportunity. After a perfect ninth to close out a 6-5 win at Texas, exactly eight years to the day after he rst got called up to the majors, the hard-throwing righty was greeted in the clubhouse by extended applause from his teammates. They clapped for a long time. It was nice to have these guys behind me, to show their appreciation for me is really neat, Kimbrel said. Everything I do every night is go out there and make sure what they do counts. Cora described the reception for Kimbrel as emotional. We know what hes been going through for a long, long time, since spring training. This team got together around him, and theres a lot of good things happening and were very proud of him, Cora said. Theres more positive things happening for him off the eld than actually on the eld, and hes been great on the eld. That gives us a lot of energy. Kimbrel has converted nine of 10 save chances and has a 1.23 ERA in his 15 appearances this season. He has allowed only seven hits and two runs in 14 2-3 innings, with 21 strikeouts and four walks. Outelder Jackie Bradley Jr. said it was special sharing the moment with his teammate, especially after all Kimbrel has been through off the eld. Obviously thats a whole lot more bigger than baseball, Bradley said. So I think its just amazing and a testament to how hard that he works, that he was able to still come back here and still compete at a very high level like we all know he can. Thats special to watch him compete out there. Hall of Fame closer Mariano Rivera got his 300th save in his 537th career appearance, while Joe Nathan got his in his 335th save opportunity and Francisco Rodriguez at age 31. Kimbrel surpassed all of them. It was his 75th save with the Red Sox, who acquired the six-time All-Star in a trade from San Diego after the 2015 season. Kimbrel had 186 saves for the Braves in 2010-14 and 39 with the Padres during the season he got to spend around Trevor Hoffman, who along with Rivera are the only players with more than 600 career saves. I got to talk to him quite a bit, got to know him, Kimbrel said. Hes an awesome guy. I really enjoyed the time I got to spend with him out there. Kimbrel is the 29th major league player with 300 career saves, and he leads that group by converting 91 percent of his saves, along with his 1.78 ERA, 14.72 strikeouts per nine innings and .155 batting average by opponents. The only active pitcher with more saves is Minnesotas Fernando Rodney with 304. Rodney is 41 years old and playing his 16th season. But Kimbrel is only about halfway to Rivera (652 saves) and Hoffman (601). Its very impressive. The number in itself is impressive, but the number of years they were able to play the game and stay effective and keep that role, that says a lot, Kimbrel said. Those are guys that as a baseball player growing up and now as a reliever, you look up to what theyve done and how they did it, and its very impressive.Kimbrel quickest to 300 saves after daughters heart surgery APBoston Red Sox relief pitcher Craig Kimbrel is congratulated by teammates after the Red Sox defeated the Texas Rangers 6-5 Saturday in Arlington, Texas.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) Gina Haspel, President Donald Trump's nominee to lead the Central Intel ligence Agency, offered to withdraw her nomination, two senior administration ofcials said Sunday, amid concerns that a debate over a harsh interrogation program would tarnish her reputation and that of the CIA. White House aides on Friday sought out addi tional details about Haspel's involvement in the CIA's now-defunct program of detaining and brutally interrogating ter ror suspects after 9/11 as they prepared her for Wednesday's conrmation hearing. This is when she offered to withdraw, the ofcials said. They said Haspel, who is the acting director of the CIA, was reassured that her nomination was still on track and will not with draw. The ofcials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. The news was rst reported Sunday by The Washington Post. Haspel, who would be the rst woman to lead the CIA, is the rst career op erations ofcer to be nom inated to lead the agency in decades. She served al most entirely undercover and much of her record is classied. Democrats say she should be disqualied because she was the chief of base at a covert deten tion site in Thailand where two terrorism suspects were subjected to water boarding, a technique that simulates drowning. Haspel has told lawmakers in recent weeks that she would stand rm against any effort to restart the brutal detention and interrogation program, administration ofcials told The Associated Press on Friday. She is expected to reiterate that publicly this week. Haspel, one ofcial said, was wary of suffering the same fate as failed veter ans affairs nominee Ronny Jackson and of dredging up the CIA's troubled past. She took over last month as the acting CIA director after the previous director, Mike Pompeo, was sworn in as secretary of state. After her offer to withdraw, White House aides worked to reassure her that she had the president's support. As with other nomina tions, this one hit a road block but is back on track, said a third administration ofcial familiar with the effort to get her conrmed. Haspel's conversations with senators continue ahead of Wednesday's conrmation hearing at the Senate Intelligence Committee and a later full vote in the Senate. In addition, the CIA has sent materials to the Senate, some classied, that the lawmakers can read to better understand not only her work in the Counterterrorism Center, which oversaw the harsh interrogation program, but also other aspects of her 33-year career, including more than 30 years under cover. She has received robust backing from former intelligence, diplomatic, military and national security ofcials, who praise her extensive intelligence career. On the opposing side are groups such as the Ameri can Civil Liberties Union, which says she should have stood up against the interrogation practices then. Raj Shah, a White House spokesman, on Sunday called Haspel a highly qualied nominee. "Her nomination will not be de railed by partisan critics who side with the ACLU over the CIA on how to keep the American people safe," he said. WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump's new attorney, Rudy Giuliani, is off to a rough start in his media blitz de fending Trump's stance toward the special counsel's Russian investigation and a $130,000 porn star hush payment. Giuliani's confounding and at times contradictory statements are said to have pleased Trump, exasperated White House aides and attorneys and worried the president's allies. Alan Dershowitz, a Har vard law professor who has informally counseled the president, said Sunday that recent developments are aiding the efforts of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigat ing contacts between the Trump 2016 campaign and Russia, as well as possible obstruction of justice. "It seems to me that the approach last week of the Trump team plays into the hands of Mueller's tactic to try, at any cost, to try to nd technical violations against lower-ranking people so that they can be squeezed," said Dershowitz. In an interview Sun day with ABC's "This Week," Giuliani dismissed as rumor his own state ments about Trump's pay ment to adult-lm actress Stormy Daniels, said he can't speak to whether the president lied to the American people when he denied knowledge of the silencing agreement and wouldn't rule out the president asserting his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in the Russia investigation. Giuliani also couldn't say whether Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, had made similar pay ments to other women on the president's behalf. Giuliani, a former fed eral prosecutor, said de spite Trump's openness to sit down with Mueller in the Russia investigation, he would strongly advise Trump against it. "I'm going to walk him into a prosecution for per jury like Martha Stewart?" Giuliani asked, referring to the lifestyle maven convicted in 2004 of lying to investigators and obstruction in an insider trading case. Giuliani couldn't guar antee that Trump wouldn't end up asserting his con stitutional right to refuse to answer any questions that might incriminate him. "How could I ever be condent of that?" Giuliani said. During a 2016 campaign rally, Trump disparaged staffers of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, for taking the Fifth Amendment during a con gressional investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server as secre tary of state. "The mob takes the Fifth," Trump said. "If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?" Giuliani also suggested that Trump wouldn't necessarily comply with a subpoena from Muel ler, whose investigation Trump has repeatedly la beled a "witch hunt." A subpoena ght would likely nd its way to the Supreme Court, which has never rmly decided whether presidents can be compelled to speak under oath. Giuliani, hired by Trump last month, said he's still learning the facts of the Mueller case and the details of Trump's knowl edge of the payment to Daniels, who has alleged a sexual tryst with Trump in 2006. The $130,000 pay ment was made by Cohen days before the 2016 election, raising questions of compliance with campaign nance and ethics laws. When Trump was asked last month aboard Air Force One if he knew about the payment to Dan iels, he said no. Trump also said he didn't know why Cohen had made the payment or where he got the money. Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to the president, said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that Trump meant that he didn't know about the payment at the time it was made, not at the time the question was asked. Giuliani said last week that Trump had reimbursed Cohen for that pay ment and other unspecied items. Giuliani said then that he rst made Trump aware of the payment shortly after joining the case but now says he doesn't know when Trump found out about it. Giuliani told BuzzFeed last week that Cohen had complained after the election about not being paid by Trump for his work in silencing Daniels and that Cohen and Trump then met to work out a $35,000 monthly retainer. Trump said Friday that Giuliani needed to "get his facts straight" but insisted they weren't changing their story. He has called Daniels' allegations of an affair "false and extortion ist." When asked Sunday whether Trump knew about the payment to Dan iels after the campaign, Giuliani demurred. "I can't prove that. I can just say it's rumor," Giuliani said. Giuliani also said he wasn't sure whether Co hen had paid off any other women for Trump but indicated it was possible. "I have no knowledge of that, but I would think if it was necessary, yes," Giuliani said. Cohen no longer represents Trump, Giuliani said, adding that it would "be a conict right now." Cohen faces a criminal in vestigation in New York, where FBI agents raided his home and ofce sev eral weeks ago seeking records about the Daniels nondisclosure agreement and other matters. Michael Avenatti, Daniels' attorney, said Sunday on "This Week" that he thinks it's "obvious ... to the American people that this is a cover-up, that they are making it up as they go along." Legal experts have said the revelation that Trump reimbursed Cohen raises new questions, including whether the money rep resented repayment of an undisclosed loan or could be seen as reimbursement for a campaign expenditure. Either could be legally problematic. Both Giuliani and Trump have insisted the payment to Daniels was not a campaign expense. Giuliani maintained Sunday that the payment can't be considered an inkind campaign contribution because there was another explanation for it. "This was for another purpose, to protect him, to protect his family," he said. "It may have involved the campaign. Doesn't matter." Giuliani said the nan cial arrangement with Cohen wasn't revealed on Trump's 2017 personal nancial disclosure because "it isn't a liability, it's an expense."

Hawaii ofcials said the decimated homes were in the Leilani Estates subdi vision, where molten rock, toxic gas and steam have been bursting through openings in the ground created by the volcano. Some of the more than 1,700 residents who have been evacuated were al lowed to briey return to gather medicine, pets, and other necessities. Ofcials say residents would be able to do so each day until further no tice as authorities monitor which areas are safe. Amber Makuakane Kane, 37, a teacher and single mother of two, said her three-bedroom house in Leilani Estates was destroyed by lava. The dwelling was across from a ssure that opened Friday, when "there was some steam rising from all parts of the yard, but everything looked ne," Makuakane said. On Saturday, she re ceived alerts from her se curity system that motion sensors throughout the house had been triggered. She later conrmed that lava had covered her prop erty. Makuakane grew up in the area and lived in her house for nine years. Her parents also live in Leilani Estates. "The volcano and the lava -it's always been a part of my life," she said. "It's devastating ... but I've come to terms with it." Lava has spread around 387,500 square feet (36,000 square meters) surrounding the most ac tive ssure, though the rate of movement is slow. There was no indication when the lave might stop or how far it might spread. "There's more magma in the system to be erupted. As long as that supply is there, the eruption will continue," U.S. Geologi cal Survey volcanologist Wendy Stovall said. Cherie McArthur wondered what would become of her macadamia nut farm in Lanipuna Gardens, an other evacuated neighbor hood near Leilani Estates. One of the year's rst har vests had been planned for this weekend. "If we lose our farm, we don't know where we're going to go. You lose your income and you lose your home at the same time," said McArthur, who's had the farm for about 20 years. "All you can do is pray and hope and try to get all the information you can." About 250 people and 90 pets spent Saturday night at shelters, the American Red Cross said. The number of lavaventing ssures in the neighborhood grew over night from eight to as many as 10, Stovall said, though some have quieted at various points. Regardless, USGS scientists ex pect ssures to keep spew ing. The lava could eventually be channeled to one powerful vent while others go dormant, as has happened in some previous Hawaii eruptions, Stovall said. Kilauea (pronounced kill-ah-WAY'-ah), one of the world's most active volcanoes, has been erupt ing continuously since 1983. The USGS's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory issued a notice in mid-April that there were signs of pressure building in un derground magma, and a new vent could form on the cone or along what's known as the East Rift Zone. Leilani Estates sits along the zone. The crater oor began to collapse Monday, trig gering earthquakes and pushing lava into new underground chambers that carried it toward Leilani Estates and nearby com munities. A magnitude-6.9 earthquake Hawaii's largest in more than 40 years hit the area Fri day. It set Michael McGuire's car rocking in his drive way, knocking things off his shelves and shattering glass in his cabinets near Leilani Estates. He hoped to check on his home Sunday but real ized it was too soon to be sure when, or if, it would be safe from the moving lava. "I'm somewhat fatalistic: if it happens, it happens," he said. "And I'm enjoying life here, so you know, you put up with a lot of things here. This is one of them." Noah and Laura Dawn own a retreat center about 3 miles downhill from the most active vents They were clearing out items Sunday and relocating up the coast indenitely. "We're just removing all things of value to us and precious things because I have the feeling it could get real real, real fast," Noah Dawn said.

Thursday, April 26, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E13 MOSCOW (AP) Vladimir Putin took the oath of ofce Monday for his fourth term as Russian president, promising to pursue an economic agenda that would boost living standards across the country. In a ceremony in an ornate Kremlin hall in Moscow, Putin said im proving Russia's economy following a recession part ly linked to international sanctions would be a pri mary goal of his next sixyear term. "Now, we must use all existing possibilities, rst of all for resolving internal urgent tasks of development, for eco nomic and technological breakthroughs, for raising competitiveness in those spheres that determine the future," he told thousands of guests standing in the elaborate Andreevsky Hall of the Grand Kremlin Pal ace and two adjacent halls. "A new quality of life, well-being, security and people's health that's what's primary today," the 65-year-old leader said. Although Putin has restored Russia's prominence on the world stage through military actions including intervening in Syria's war to help Pres ident Bashar Assad he has been criticized for in adequate efforts to diversify Russia's economy away from its dependence on oil and gas exports or develop the country's manufactur ing sector. Russia's economy was hit hard by low world oil prices and sanctions con nected to Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea and military involvement in the separatist uprising in eastern Ukraine, with the ruble losing half its value between 2014 and 2016. The country recorded an anemic improvement in 2017, with gross domestic product rising 1.5 percent and the ruble recover ing some of its value. But the ruble dropped about 8 percent again last month in the wake of new U.S. sanctions. "Russia should be mod ern and dynamic, it should be ready to accept the call of the times," he said. In his speech, he made only brief reference to Russia's international role, saying "Russia is a strong, active, inuential participant in international life. The security and defense capability of the country is reliably ensured. We will give these matters the nec essary constant attention." He acknowledged that the challenges facing Rus sia were formidable "but we all remember well that, for more than 1,000 years of history, Russia has often faced epochs of tur moil and trials, and has always revived as a Phoenix, reached heights that others could not." Putin held onto the pres idency in March's election when he tallied 77 percent of the vote. Putin has effectively been the leader of Russia for all of the 21st century. He stepped down from the presidency in 2008 because of term limits, but was named prime minister and continued to steer the country until he returned as president in 2012. He became acting presi dent on New Year's Eve 1999 following the sur prise resignation of Boris Yeltsin and was elected to his rst four-year term in 2000. The ceremony Monday was covered in assiduous detail on state television. It showed Putin working at his desk in his shirt sleeves, then donning a suit coat to begin a long walk through the corridors of the Kremlin's Senate building, then boarding a limousine for a short drive to the Grand Kremlin Pal ace. Thousands of guests stood in the three halls for the inauguration. One of the most prominent was former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, who is now chairman of Russia's state oil company Rosneft and one of the most prominent Western voices argu ing for an end to sanctions against Russia. Schroeder stood with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, and Putin prominently shook hands with him after the speech. Soon after the ceremony, Putin issued an order for mally dissolving the Cabinet but nominated Medve dev to serve again as prime minister. The lower house of parliament is to vote on whether to approve him on Tuesday. It wasn't clear when other ministerial posts would be decided or if signicant ministers might be re placed.

Exchange shop windows that once showed rates for Iranian rial to U.S. dol lar transactions have gone blank, as black-market rates have skyrocketed to 70,000 rials to the dollar, far higher than the newly government-imposed rate of 42,000 for $1. Busy shopping districts that once saw newlyweds buying refrigerators and other major appliances now largely stand empty as people save their mon ey. Some talk openly about leaving the country for anywhere else. "All of us are thinking about the uncertain future ahead of us," said Moham mad Khaleghi, a 27-yearold appliance salesman on Tehran's Amin Hozour Street. "Everybody is doing that. Everybody is afraid of the future even myself. I do not know what is going to happen, if I can survive in this busi ness or not. This situation concerns us all." The sense of foreboding gripping the Iranian capi tal ahead of Trump's Saturday deadline to decide what to do about the deal is a far cry from the jubi lant street celebrations that greeted the 2015 nuclear accord with world powers. Then, people spoke with hope about Iran slowly losing its pariah status with the West, cemented in the aftermath of the 1979 Islamic Revolution and the hostage crisis at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. Others praised President Hassan Rouhani, himself a cleric, and Iran's other relative moderates for lift ing the crippling economic sanctions that choked Iran over its contested nuclear program. Today though, few can point to any benet of the atomic accord. "We do not feel any par ticular impact especially in our economy or on our life," said Shadi Gholami, a 25-year-old architect. "It is as if such a deal does not exist at all." While the nuclear deal offered a salve in allowing Iran to sell crude oil and natural gas in the inter national market, the deal has not helped address its high unemployment, par ticularly among the youth in this country of 80 mil lion people. Banks remain saddled with massive bad loans from the sanctions era. Government corrup tion also remains. "Our economic problems have nothing to do with the deal or Trump. Our problem is that our ofcials just think of their own pocket," said Ladan Shiri, a 33-year-old sales manager at a private company. "If they really thought about the people and not just their own prots, our people would not have the troubles they have today. This is the main problem." Ali Forouzi, a 33-yearold industrial engineer, agrees. "It is not nice to al ways blame others such as America and Trump for our troubles. I believe that the root of our problems is inside the country," Forouzi said. "If we are strong enough internally, nobody can hit us from the outside, but unfortunately our problems arise from the internal system. This includes the lack of good coordination between our government and other bodies, as well as within the people themselves." Trump himself has been a divisive gure in Iran even apart from his long criticism of the nuclear deal. Though the United States is home to many Iranians, Trump included Iran in his travel bans, stopping families from getting visas to visit loved ones. Iranians also have criticized him for calling the Persian Gulf "the Arabian Gulf." Trump's actions have been a boon to hard-liners within Iran's government, who point to them as a sign that America is the "Great Satan" of the postrevolution years. "If Trump pulls out, it will show very well to the world and to our own peo ple how disloyal America is to its treaties and the truth will be revealed," Forouzi said. "It may even give a better picture of us internationally because we have been committed to our promises." Seyed Reza Mousavi, a 58-year-old Shiite cleric, said the deal had "dis armed superpowers" and showed Iran's strength. "We are not scared by Trump's decision and will resist and stand up to him without wavering," the cleric said. "Even if he pulls out of the deal we will not be harmed. We have chosen our path and it is the United States that will be harmed, not us, if he does it." One way the U.S. could be harmed is in North Ko rea, said Alireza Yarmohammadi, the 52-year-old director of a health care and cosmetics company. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may never take Trump seriously ahead of promised talks between the two leaders. "It is not very easy for America to leave the deal because if it does, North Korea will not hold talks with it," Yarmohammadi said. "They will not reach a deal with a country that is disloyal to another accord which is only 2 years old. Besides, the next pres ident may come and say that they do not accept a previously reached deal." But closer to home, Iranians increasingly talk among themselves of try ing to leave the country for a better life abroad. Western Europe remains a choice for those with ties there, while those with the money head visa-free to Armenia, Georgia and Serbia to buy citizenship. "Oftentimes I think that if I want to live a better life I must emigrate from Iran," said Gholami, the architect. "This thought is always with me." She added: "I wish here was a place where I could live in peace and quiet beside my friends and family. But sometimes things become so bitter that we have no choice."
