By Rachel Christian Staff Writer In March, the U.S. Congress authorized $380 million in grant funding for state elections ocials to help secure voting systems against Russian and other foreign government interference. Its still unclear how much of that money will trickle down to Osceola County, but with the 2018 midterm elections less than seven months away, local ocials say theyre not taking any chances. Osceola County Supervisor of Elections Mary Jane Arrington said her oce is increasing rewall and intrusion protection. Its also ramping up training for sta and volunteers. The measures are partly in response to a conference call from the Division of Elections Arringtons oce received last year. During the call, Arrington and her staff learned that a foreign country had attempted to hack voters lists in North Carolina via phishing emails and other tactics. The specific country was not mentioned. Arringtons oce was informed of the attempt because it uses the same voting system as North Carolina. The hackers were unsuccessful in North Carolina and Arrington said she was confident in the training her staff have received on identifying possible security threats. Infiltrating the actual voting machines would be next to impossible since votes are recorded on an o-line system, Arrington said. But hacking and deleting certain citizens from voter lists is also a major threat, and one Arrington doesnt take lightly. It would be total chaos if it had happened, especially during a busy presidential election, she said. If they had been successful, people would show up to the polls ready to vote, but when we went to look for their name, it would say they werent registered. But strengthening cyber security isnt cheap, which is why Arrington is looking forward to receiving some of those recently approved federal dollars to help pay for upgrades. Arrington estimates that her oce has spent around $100,000 so far on improving security. Each state will receive a minimum of $3 million to improve election security through the new grant funding, and states with larger populations will receive more. States must provide a shortterm plan for how they will spend the money and agree to a 5 percent match of state funds within two years of receiving the federal dollars. Preserving the integrity of elections is just one of many things on Arringtons checklist leading up to the November elections. We are starting to hit out busy By Charlie Reed For the News-Gazette Osceola County Commission Chairman Fred Hawkins Jr. and other ocials are meeting with the Florida Communities Trust in Tallahassee next week to discuss amending various interagency agreements that protect Split Oak Forest from development, according to the meeting agenda. Osceola County is exploring modications that could allow the eastward extension of Osceola Parkway to go through the publicly owned conservation area. Hawkins also chairs the Central Florida Expressway Authority, the board that will ultimately decide the new roads alignment. e Florida Communities Trust managed through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection awarded $5 million in loans to Osceola and Orange counties through a grant program in 1992 that helped the local governments purchase Split Oak. It stipulated that the land would forever remain a conservation area open to the public. The counties essentially borrowed funds from the trust to buy Split Oak and then repaid it with money collected from various developers through environmental mitigation credits. Split Oak also was established in conjunction with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and designed to mitigate the environmental impacts of the anticipated By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Osceola County commissioners voted Monday to purchase a $2.2 million parcel of land along Fortune Road as part of an ongoing expansion project of Osceola Heritage Park. An 11-unit rental community called Keston Park is currently located at the site. e county plans to demolish the units next year aer all tenant leases expire. The county purchased the 1.5-acre parcel from former County Commissioner Randy Sheive, who recently acquired the property in October. This is the second time Osceola County has purchased land north of OHP with expansion plans in mind. e last purchase took place in October when commissioners bought a different Sheive-owned property, this time a shopping center, for $3.48 million. That property was later swapped for two vacant parcels at the corner of Fortune and Shakerag roads. Ocials said the longterm goal is to expand OHP property north to Fortune Road to attract new, larger events and tourism. Having additional property and land can help attract larger events and festivals, said Andrew Sullivan, public information ocer for Osceola County. Its an ongoing, long term project the county is working on. The goal is to grow OHPs footprint, but Sullivan said that doesnt currently include erecting any new buildings on acquired property.

Even when its not a presidential year, theres a lot of work that goes into preparing for an election. The Supervisor of Elections Office will soon begin training the 600 to 700 volunteers needed to operate polling locations and help register people to vote. ere are also three new polling places this year, a direct result of Osceola Countys continued growth, Arrington said. Florida voters will have many important decisions to make on the ballot this fall, including 13 constitutional amendments, a hotly contested U.S. Senate seat and Gov. Rick Scotts successor. Arrington encouraged residents to utilize absentee voting or vote early to avoid long lines on Election Day. Osceola County crash kills woman on Floridas TurnpikeThe day the world stopped spinning: part two I dont even know where to start. I will never forget every little detail of Aug. 18, 2018. You see, the day started innocently enough. I had plans aer work to go see a Journey tribute band at the House of Blues. My son, a police officer in Winter Haven and graduate of Osceola High School, was planning on attending the OHS vs. Dr. Phillips football game. I even le work a little early aer a non-eventful day to start what I thought was going to be a great weekend. So, its a little aer 9 p.m. and I am listening to the band play the song Dont Stop Believin! I get a call from my son telling me to check my phone for a text since he couldnt hear me. e text says, KPD ocers just le the game in a rush, two cops shot! Is this true? I had not been notied by the patrol captain about any incident so I called. e patrol captain had not been called either, but she said she would check with the on-duty lieutenant. I will never, ever, as long as I live forget the follow-up call. John, we have two down. One is dead and the other probably wont make it. Can you please respond and call the chief? They were Officer Matthew Baxter and Sgt. Sam Howard. My heart stopped. This was not happening. Furthermore, it couldnt happen in Kissimmee. Not my hometown. Even now as I write this, the hair is standing up on the back of my neck. I quickly turned to my best friend and told him he had to take my wife home. I shouted at my wife that there were two ocers injured and ran from the House of Blues. I called Chief Je ODell. We had this saying whenever I called him to advise him about an incident. He always said, Give me the good news rst! I told him there was none and he said hed be on his way and that he would meet me there. I will not rehash the great work done by all of the law enforcement agencies that night. Suce it to say that it was a humbling experience. I started writing this historical look about the community, so Im going to spend time on that. ere was the public outpouring of grief. e untold amounts of food, cookies, cakes, barbecue and other edible items at the station, delivered by anyone and everyone who wanted to help. People all over the globe sending prayers, texts, emails and letters. This community came together. We had a prayer vigil where I was hugged so many times by members of the community that I felt like the whole city was hugging me at one time. I realized that our grief and their grief was one in the same. Kissimmee had become part of the in Blue Line. It wasnt a police thing anymore, it was a Kissimmee thing. In our darkest hour, we saw the best of all our residents. We hugged, cried, laughed and lashed out in anger together. is tragic event brought us all a lot closer. It was sad for many reasons. I lost two brothers. The community lost two very dedicated protectors. Wives lost husbands, parents lost sons and children lost fathers. But to me, one of the more important facets of this tragedy was that the community cared. They cared for our well being. ey held us in our time of need. After the whirlwind of the next week, through the funeral and the aermath, everyone was physically drained but we needed to press on. We needed to get back to work because getting back out there was the only way we would ever honor our fallen brothers. They were men to be admired. ey represented the best of the Kissimmee police. I had so many people come up to me at dierent functions to tell me how great both men were. I am very thankful that I was able to know both of them. I wished I had more time with them. ey made you better just being around them. Late in the evening on the day aer the funeral, I was at an event in downtown Kissimmee. I had a resident walk up to me and thank me for my service but what he said next put everything in perspective. He said, Deputy chief, its a sad thing for the department but I dont think Kissimmee can be called a small town anymore. Unfortunately, this type of incident puts us in the big city club. at to me was probably the saddest thing Ive ever heard. I know this city and community. We have a better community than most big cities. Even as I write this my eyes are getting watery See World, Page 5. PATIO FURNITURE Buy at the FACTORY and SAVE!

The money for the countys land purchase on Monday came from the Tourist Tax Development Fund. OHP is owned by the county and privately operated by entertainment venue management company SMG. Sullivan said the county has been working on a laundry list of small renovations and upgrades to OHP over the years, including adding hardtop parking areas and new indoor LED lighting. OHP is a 150-acre indoor and outdoor events center, which includes a 90,000-square foot events center, 5,400-seat stadium and the 10,000-seat Silver Spurs Arena. FORESTContinued from Page 1 development in the oncerural area southeast of Orlando International Airport. Spanning both counties, the area is now exploding with growth. Tens of thousands of more homes and commercial buildings are now under construction or slated for construction in the next several years. The upcoming May 15 meeting at the Florida Communities Trust in Tallahassee will include ocials from Osceola and Orange counties and the FCW, along with trust sta, according to DEP ocials. It will not be open to the public. According to the meetings agenda, it will address the process for amending the grant agreement between the trust and Osceola and Orange counties. It will also address the process for amending the interagency agreement between the two counties and the FWC, as well as the conservation easement between the counties and FWC. When considering modications to state agreements, such as those who helped fund and establish Split Oak, the trust is bound by Florida Administrative Code 62818, according to the DEP. e code states that there must be no reasonable alternatives to infringing upon the preservation site for linear facilities such as roads. The Osceola County Commission on April 16 agreed to work with Tavistock Development Company to lead a public process (both local and state) to get the associated land in the Split Oak Forest released for right-of-way to extend Osceola Parkway. Tavistock, the company that developed Lake Nona, is building the massive Sunbridge community in the area, which would benet from the new toll road. Ocials say the toll road expansion also would alleviate trac on interior roads and is needed for regional connectivity. Without land contributions and nancial assistance from Tavistock and Deseret Ranches, the landowner working with the developer, the Osceola Parkway extension likely would be infeasible due to cost. In exchange for help from Osceola County, Tavistock has pledged to move a water and sewer treatment plant further away from Split Oak and to donate land to offset the 160-acre section of the forest that would be sacriced for the road. e countys deal with Tavistock was negotiated by Hawkins in private meetings with the developer. He brought it to the County Commission during the last 30 minutes of the April 16 meeting reserved for commissioner comments. At that time, Hawkins presented the commission with a letter from Tavistock addressed to him that outlined the terms of the agreement while Charles Lee from Audubon Florida at the request of Hawkins gave a formal presentation that supported the deal. Hawkins sent Lee a copy of the Tavistock letter the Sunday before the meeting that asked him not to go public, according to an email exchange between the two men obtained by the News-Gazette. Lee told Hawkins he would keep quiet. When asked about the exchange, Lee told the News-Gazette in an email that he did so because the negotiations with Tavistock regarding the relocation of the regional water and sewer facility had been very sensitive and dicult, and Chairman Hawkins wanted to brief the rest of the commissioners personally during the commission meeting rather than having them learn about it from third parties. Hawkins would not comment on the countys agreement with Tavistock directly but issued a statement through county spokesman Mark Pino. Chairman Hawkins did not want it to go public because he was directly involved in the negotiations and did not want anyone acting as a conduit to the other commissioners. He also did not want any misunderstanding [about] how this came about, or See Forest, Page 5.
Page 4 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, May 12, 2018 When history is looked at in its complexity, it plays havoc with the present moment. This wasnt done by the Klan, or people who had to wear a mask. This was done by teachers and clergy and law enforcement officers. is is Bryan Stevenson of the Equal Justice Initiative, recently talking to Oprah Winfrey on Minutes about the lynching 80 years ago of Wes Johnson, in an Alabama cotton eld. It was one of multi-thousands of lynchings in the South and across the country in the wake of the Civil War lynchings meant both as acts of terror to African-American communities and acts of public celebration and patriotism, with children present, dressed in their Sunday best. e lynchings were oen commemorated as postcards . souvenirs. e grotesque photographs of dangling corpses are American history, far more than the simplistic heritage represented by the statues of Confederate generals; and nally, nally, more than a century and a half aer the end of slavery in the United States, the country is beginning to nd the courage to look at its own shadow legacy. Stevenson and his organization have created a memorial to American lynchings the National Memorial for Peace and Justice which opens this month in Montgomery. I dont think we get to pretend that this stu didnt happen. I dont think you can just play it o. is is like a disease. You have to treat it, he said. e memorial contains 805 steel markers, one for each county in the country where lynchings took place. Each marker contains the names of those who were lynched. We want, Stevenson said, to call this community to repentance, to acknowledgement, to shame. We want to tell the truth, because we believe in truth and reconciliation but we know that truth and reconciliation are sequential. We cant get to where were trying to go if we dont tell the truth rst. Oh, sweet land of liberty! To look at these horric photographs these postcards of the national past, 98 of which are available in an extraordinary book compiled by James Allen called Without Sanctuary, which I call the coee table book from hell. I bought the book shortly aer it came out in 2000 and wrote about it at the time: July 19, 1935. Rubin Stacy, lynched in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Stacy, a homeless black tenant farmer, had asked a white woman for food, frightening her. Mob justice converted this to the capital oense of rape. In the photo, the dead mans pain is palpable. He hangs from a scrub pine in ghastly, almost prayerful repose. e noose around his neck cuts a deep gouge, pulling the esh taut to the jaw line. e onlookers are mostly women and little girls. e other central gure in the picture is one of the latter, maybe 9, sweet-faced, in a sleeveless, wide-collared dress you could imagine her wearing to Sunday school. She stares almost beatically at the dangling corpse. ere is no easy or quick recovery from half an hour of this book, just as theres no easy recovery from the Minutes show, especially when you realize that this buried history of power and dehumanization is still living, still present in our world, still killing African-Americans and others. Consider the contemporary lynching of Kalief Browder, for instance, who had been arrested on the charge of stealing a backpack when we was 16 years old, then, my God, sent o to Rikers Island, New York Citys notorious jail complex, where he spent years without ever going to trial. He had always maintained his innocence and the case against him was eventually dropped, but before that happened, he endured abuse at the hands of inmates and guards and spent two years in solitary connement. He never recovered emotionally from the hell he was put through and in 2015 he committed suicide by hanging himself from the airconditioning unit outside a bedroom window at his mothers apartment. And then there was Sandra Bland, who was arrested aer a trac stop failure to use her turn signal in Waller County, Texas, near Houston, in 2015, and three days later found hanged in her jail cell. Although the death was ruled a suicide, her family reached a $1.9 million wrongful death settlement with the Texas Department of Public Safety and Waller County. Between 1877 and 1950, 3,959 African Americans were murdered in lynchings, Madison J. Gray wrote at Ebony, citing Equal Justice Initiative statistics. But in 2015 alone, 1,134 people were killed by police, according to a study published in the Guardian. Were still talking about lynchings today. But this time rope and trees have nothing to do with it. Now its brought to us through the nervous truths dangled in front of our faces by social media and a culture that reacts with immediacy by recording American life in its rawest, ugliest fashion. But can we really say the lynchings that happen now are any dierent than in my grandmothers day? . Alton Sterling and Philando Castile really only committed the oense of being Black in the wrong place at the wrong time. And it was enough to get them lynched by standard issue Glock 9mm wielded by police who will say their intention was to establish authority over a situation. Were not who we think we are. We sanitize our past and call it heritage. We sanitize the present and call it justice. Its time to start looking at the truth in all directions.

However, Hawkins also sent the Tavistock letter and his exchange with Lee to Mike Horner from Macy Island Consultants ahead of the April 16 meeting. Horner has worked as a lobbyist for various government agencies in Osceola in recent years. He is a former state representative and former president of the Kissimmee/Osceola Chamber of Commerce, where he now serves as a board member. Pino also provided a statement for Hawkins about a May 2 letter the chairman sent to Tavistock President Jim Zboril regarding the April 16 board meeting. It stated that the public was included in the discussion among commissioners and Lee that night. But members of the public were not invited nor able to comment or participate during the Split Oak discussion at the meeting. There may be a misinterpretation of the intent of that part of the (May 2) letter as this was brought forward in a public meeting, Pino wrote on behalf of Hawkins. Commissioner Peggy Choudhry noted the lack of public comment during the April 16 board meeting and later told the NewsGazette thats why she did not agree to move forward with the countys deal with Tavistock regarding Split Oak. Commissioner Cheryl Grieb said this was among the difficult decisions on complex issues faced by county commissioners. When we, as a Commission, look at the needs of our community, we have to balance the safety, social, environmental and economic factors surrounding the needs. With Osceola County being the second-fastest growing county in Florida, our Countys needs are great; most especially, our transportation needs, Grieb said in an email to the News-Gazette. While Osceola County does not ultimately decide which (toll road) alignment will be chosen, I feel that the alignment that least impacts Split Oak and nets a greater amount of land for the expansion of Split Oak and removes the water and sewer treatment from these lands, is the better option on the table. Meanwhile, Friends of Split Oak Forest, a grassroots organization founded by Osceola County residents and environmentalists throughout Central Florida, said there are several legal irregularities concerning commitments and decision-making by the Osceola County Commission in connection Osceola Parkway extension. ere was no public hearing, no public notice and no public comment allowed regarding the county commissions agreement with Tavistock concerning Split Oak, which appears to violate Florida law, said St. Cloud resident Valerie Anderson, founder and president of the nonprot. Anderson said the group also is concerned about Hawkins dual role as chairman of both the Osceola County Commission and the Central Florida Expressway Authority. Confusion and potential conflicts are inherent in Mr. Hawkins dual roles. For example, when Mr. Hawkins is negotiating with Tavistock, is he negotiating for the primary benet of Osceola County or CFX? Anderson said. Split Oak Forest

Saturday, May 12, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 7 By Ken Jackson Sports Editor Triston omas, who helped Gateways football program make the rst two playo appearances in its history, will be moving on to college to hopefully bring a program its rst conference title in 30 years. Considering hes headed to St. Paul, Minnesota to do it, its a leap. omas, who played oense, defense and special teams in four varsity seasons with the Panthers, has signed to play at Hamline University a member of the Division III Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, where he said coaches have told him hed most likely be able to contribute as a freshman on oense as a slot receiver and in the return game. I watched my friends Dennis (Briggs, with Florida State) and Jerimaya (Messam, with Garden City Community College) sign on Feb. 7 (National Signing Day), I By Ken Jackson Sports Editor anks to timely good fortune and playoff-type pitching, both Osceola and St. Cloud have moved on in the regional baseball playos. And, in even better news, both will host regional seminal games next Tuesday. In Class 9A, Osceola used aggressive baserunning, a couple of great defensive plays and a quality pitching start from Hamilton Martinez to defeat Oviedo, 3-1 on Tuesday. In 8A, St. Cloud got enough offense to shock District 8A-9 champion Lake Howell on road in 6-4 fashion for the Bulldogs rst playo victory in nearly 20 years. Next week, Osceola (19-6) will host Timber Creek in 9A, aer the Wolves defeated Gateway, 6-0, on Tuesday. St. Cloud (16-8) will welcome Hagerty in a rematch from those teams regional softball playoff game a week ago. Against Oviedo (15-12), the Kowboys took a 3-0 lead in the third inning and cruised thanks to the arm of Martinez, who struck out ve and scattered three hits in six innings. The first run came in the second. Markeys Tavares coaxed a leadoff walk, advanced on a grounder then went to third on Kenny Badillos ground ball elders choice; Tavares was caught dead to rights between second and third but evaded a tag and slid safely into third. He later scored on the back end of a double steal when Badillo hung up the right side of the Lions infield long enough for Tavares to scamper home safely. Andrew Fernandez manufactured a Kowboy run in the third when he banged a leado single up the middle and stole second. He was running to third when Diego Arroyo walked, and the throw there went into le eld, allowing him to score easily. Frankie Santaniello drove Arroyo in with an RBI single. At this point of the season youve got to get a little lucky, OHS Coach Scott Birchler said. Our game plan was to scratch out a couple runs across early. Its not going to change next week, were going to see a great team and a great arm. e 3-0 lead was enough for Martinez, and he got some help from his defense. With a run already in in the sixth and runners on rst and second, third baseman Santaniello went full extension and made a diving stab on a line drive o the bat of Brayden Woodburn that saved at least one run. Prayer answered, Santaniello said. When the ball hit my palm I just said, ank God. C.J. Oliverria pitched the seventh and struck out two for his second save in as many games; he locked down the eighth inning of a 3-1 District 9A-5 championship last week at Haines City. At Lake Howell, the Bulldogs broke a 4-4 tie in the seventh inning on RBI singles by Diego Gonzalez and Nicky Matos and got a 1-2-3 inning from reliever Geo Berio to send St. Cloud to the regional seminals for the rst time that anyone can remember. It has been a long time, I dont remember it happening in any of the years while I was playing, said Coach Bo ODell, who pitched at Osceola in the mid-2000s. St. Cloud got on the board in the second on a Carson Roe RBI ground out. Migdiel Burgos tied the ballgame with a bases-clearing double in the fourth to tie the game at 4-4. Handed a 6-4 lead, Berio came in with Lake Howell runners on base in relief of starter Darren Friedman, who struck out six and gave up three hits in 5 1/3 innings and put out the re. We made a couple mistakes that let them back in the game be we kept ghting and kept them at bay just enough, ODell said. e top of the seventh was a good inning of clutch swings by Josh Blackmore, Gonzalez and Matos to put us up by two going into the bottom of the seventh. Pitching for us was great the majority of the night. CONTACT KEN JACKSON OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE SPORTS EDITOR EMAIL KJACKSON@OSCEOLANEWSGAZETTE.COM Super sixOrlando City keeps win streak alive .Page 8.

REGIONAL BASEBALL PLAYOFFS By Ken Jackson Sports Editor e Florida Fire Frogs will be hitting, throwing and jumping around the Hot Lily Pad that is Osceola County Stadium next week. e high Class A aliate of the Atlanta Braves begin a six-game home stand Monday at 6:30, with a special school day 11 a.m. Tuesday matinee against the St. Lucie Mets. Weeknight games are at 6:30 p.m. with earlier May 19 (5 p.m.) and 20 (11 a.m.) games against the Clearwater Phillies. e 19th is Military and First Responders Night the team will honor all military and rst responders with free tickets for all active and veteran military and first responders as well as Graduation Night, where a select number of chosen Osceola County high school graduates in attendance will receive scholarships (the team is still working on the number and amount). Thursday is the ubiquitous Free Beer Night those of age can receive free Pabst Blue Ribbon from first pitch until the Mets score their rst run. But, free suds isnt the only attraction, because a night at the ballpark is about baseball, and the Fire Frogs have shown talent this season, particularly on the mound, despite a 13-20 record heading into ursday night. While the hitters have been a touch slow to nd the re to start the year, the pitching sta carries a 3.63 ERA, good for fourth in the Florida State League. Starter Joey Wentz, the Braves No. 11 prospect, has a 2.33 ERA through six starts, and Bryse Wilson gave up one earned run in 26 innings (0.34 ERA) before a call-up to Class AA Mississippi. Oensively, inelder Alejandro Salazar leads the club with a .323 batting average, and center elder and leado hitter Christian Pache, See Thomas, Page 8. NEWS-GAZETTE PHOTO/KEN JACKSONTriston Thomas (center) signs his Letter of Intent Wednesday to Hamline (Minn.) University as (from left) church friends Adam Holt, Alvin and Barbara Wolliston, mother Sophia Thomas, Panthers Athletic Director Travis James and football Coach Marlin Roberts look on.
Page 8 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, May 12, 2018 cant believe its been three months since that. God told me to stay patient, and here I am signing, he said.Its such a relief, because I didnt want to give this up, Ive been playing since the age of four, he said. I knew I had to play college football somewhere. Thomas said the Minnesota school made rst contact; they texted him out of the blue aer getting his contact information from recruiting a Panther teammate. ey didnt even now we were teammates, so I kind of took that as a sign, he said. I met (head coach Chip) Taylor at a college recruiting event in Polk County this spring, and we hit it o really well. He said hed also attracted the attention of Heidelberg (Ohio) University and Florida Gulf Coast in Fort Myers, which is in the process of forming its program. I wanted to go to Gulf Coast, but it had no track record and the situation just wasnt the right t, he said. e Hamline Pipers were 2-8 in 2017 aer going 5-5 in 2016 in Taylors rst year as head coach. Thomas, who played on the varsity since his freshman year, played in all phases of the game in his Panther career but made his biggest mark on defense. Last season he registered 77 tackles and three interceptions, one returned for a score. He also scored on kicko and punt returns in 2017, when Gateway went 6-5, qualied for the Class 9A playoffs under the states new merit points system. GHS Coach Marlin Roberts called omas a hard-nosed player and a great kid. Im very happy that this worked out, the coach said.He was a leader this season, vocally and by example. Hed been a safety for three years, but this year we had to move him up into the box to be a linebacker because we needed it, and because he was tough enough to do it. I wish I could clone him because were going to miss him. He wont be an easy one to replace. Thomas said Gateway, Roberts and his sta made him the competitive player he became. Playing for Gateway under Coach Marlin and these guys made me a better man, they helped me see life on and o the eld, he said. We fought, we argued like we were family, but we always hugged it out at the end. At Wednesdays signing, omas was joined by his church family, Barbara and Bishop Alvin Wolliston and his mother, Sophia omas, who addressed current players and former players who showed support. It doesnt matter the division youre in, or how you get there, as long as you get there, Ms. omas said to those attending. Its how you nish. Others can nish, too. I want you to nish.THOMASContinued from Page 7FIRE FROGSContinued from Page 7.NEWS-GAZETTE PHOTO/ROB HERBERTFlorida Fire Frogs Manager Luis Salazar said hes liked his teams pitching and defense thus far this season. The team opens a home stand Monday against the St. Lucie Mets.Lions run win streak to 6, host rival Atlanta FC on Sunday Orlando City SC (6-2-1, 19 points) scored three unanswered goals in the second half to defeat Real Salt Lake (3-5-1, 10 points) 3-1 on Sunday at Orlando City Stadium. Defender Lamine San scored his rst goal as a Lion and goalkeeper Joe Bendik made a season-high eight saves as City won a Club-record sixth straight game. Obviously another afternoon or evening that Im really, really pleased. Really pleased with the players mentality and their character, Lions head coach Jason Kreis said. It says a lot that we can continue to come back from difficult situations, being a goal down in the first half after I thought we started so incredibly brightly. It was difficult for the guys. In the beginning of the second half there were some difficulties again, but we continued to push, we continued to believe, we continued to stay together and we get the result I think in the end we deserved. Real Salt Lake opened the scoring in the 12th minute when Damir Kreilach put Corey Baird in behind for a chip into the back of the net. City dominated possession the remainder of the half, taking 10 shots and earning ve corners. e Lions got on the board in the 61st minute. Sacha Kljestan raced up the pitch before pulling up and chipping it for Dom Dwyer to head into the back of the net. It was Dwyers sixth goal in six appearances in 2018 and Kljestans fourth assist of the season. City took the lead three minutes later following an incredible sequence. Baird was in alone but Bendik made a leaping kick save. e Lions quickly regained the ball, pushed up the pitch and earned a corner kick. Yoshimar Yotn curled an in-swinger to San for the eventual game-winner. Yotn scored his third goal of the season and his second in as many games when he blasted Dwyers rebound into the net. Yotn now has two goals and three assists in his last three games. Kreis said he was pleased in the teams comeback in the second half, which was just the latter portion of a total 90-minute eort. As a coach you probably much prefer not having to come back so many times, not to be suering the rst goal in so many matches, but at the end of the day it doesnt matter because its about 90 minutes. Over the 90 minutes our guys continued to work and stay together and get the result. As I said, we deserve that result and we got it. e match saw Chris Schuler make his Club debut. Schuler was signed on March 2 aer playing eight seasons at Real Salt Lake. It was Citys fourth come-from-behind victory during its six-game winning streak. Citys six consecutive wins are the most by any team in MLS this season. The Lions return to Orlando City Stadium on Sunday to host rival Atlanta United FC, who Orlando has never defeated, at 6 p.m. Orlando, with 19 points, sits in third place in the Eastern Conference, trailing No. 1 Atlanta (7-2-1, 22 points) by three points, meaning the Lions can catch Atlanta for the top spot on Sunday. the Braves No. 7 prospect, is doing his part with a .312 mark and eight doubles, 14 runs and 56 total bases, all which lead the Fire Frogs. Florida Manager Luis Salazar, said managing at this level isnt hard he has three rules: show up on time, play hard and know the signs. Its not rocket science. My job is to get these guys better to get to the right place, he said. Double-A is not that big a jump. And you can get to the big league from there, you dont have to go to Triple-A. He said the biggest learning curve for hitters who are struggling is to learn how to adjust. You play a three or fourgame series against a team, theyll nd your weakness and adjust, the same for the pitchers, Salazar said. Pitching coach and major-league veteran Mike Maroth said the Florida State League is traditionally a pitchers league. Youve got some big fields, a lot of dimensions are bigger and the gaps are deeper, he said. The five guys who (started the season) are in our rotation are very special, theyre young and very talented. Since theyre young we dont need to rush them. We want to refine their pitches, know when to use them in counts and developing confidence in them. eyre pretty smart, I see them getting it pretty quick. Salazar said the Fire Frogs defense and pitching have been very good thus far. Our starters have been legit, theyve kept us in ballgames, he said. NOTES: e Fire Frogs are only in their second season of existence, but they already have two big leaguers who have made it to Atlanta. Pitcher Luiz Gohara and center elder Ronald Acuna, who started on Opening Day last season, have made big league debuts. Gohara sailed through the Braves system and reached Atlanta on Sept. 5. He made ve starts and is now at Triple-A Gwinett. Acuna ended the year in Gwinett, hit over .400 during spring training in April, and was called up on April 25 and, at age 20 years and four months, became the youngest player in the Majors. Hes made a splash, hitting .302 with three home runs and nine runs scored in 13 games through ursday.

It was a little tough with the wind, some anglers were saying. A total of 194.49 pounds of bass crossed the scales. e team of Brandon and Sam took home the 1st place honors and payout of $225 with their 18.18 pounds. Coming in second with 17.88 pounds that included the Denali Rods Big Fish of the Week, a 7.06 pounder, was the duo of Brandon and Brent with 17.88 pounds earning them $115 plus an additional $95 for the big sh. And claiming third place that night was Anthony and Grant. The American Bass Anglers (ABA) held a tournament out of the Kissimmee Lakefront last Saturday. More than 60 anglers competed on the Boater side for a shot at the $5,700 rst place jackpot. Claiming the prize money with 32.52 pounds that included a sweet 8.97-pound Florida Trophy Catch was Dustin Smith. Claiming second place was Levi Brown with 28.69 pounds with his ve-sh limit.

If overtaking another boat, you may pass on either side, but you must keep clear. If you are about to cross paths with another vessel, the cra on the right should be allowed to continue at the same speed and direction, and you must alter your speed and direction to pass safely behind. Following these rules will help you avoid any collisions. Have a great weekend. Tight lines everyone!

Saturday, May 12, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 11 By Krista Stump For the News-Gazette Endangered Species Day is Friday, May 18. Why do we have a day dedicated to endangered species? Simply put, we depend on the survival of endangered species. All species are a part of a complex web of ecosystems. These ecosystems provide food, water, shelter, medicines, water filtration, air purification, and nutrient cycling important services we cant survive without. Losing just one species to extinction can cause a ripple eect within an ecosystem, and this can have serious consequences to our well being. Fortunately, the United States has an outstanding endangered species program with strong, well-implemented laws. The Endangered Species Act (ESA) was introduced in 1973. e purpose of the ESA is to protect and recover endangered species, and to preserve their habitats. More than 1,300 species of plants and animals are currently listed as either threatened or endangered in the United States. While extinction is still a real threat for many species, there is hope. Conservation actions carried out under the ESA have successfully prevented extinction for 99 percent of the species that are listed as endangered or threatened. Endangered Species Day is a great opportunity to recognize the dierence we have made and celebrate our successes. The bald eagle: Americas great success story One of our greatest endangered species success stories is the bald eagle. Its estimated that in the early 18th century, the bald eagle population in the U.S. was 300,000 500,000. However, due to a variety of factors including the use of the pesticide DDT, habitat destruction, and legal and illegal shooting, by the 1950s there were only 412 nesting pairs in all of the 48 contiguous states. But the introduction of the ESA and the following conservation efforts led to the bald eagles recovery. In 1995, the bald eagle was reclassied from endangered to threatened. e population continued to grow, and in 2007, it was de-listed from the List of Endangered and reatened Wildlife. Today, Florida itself is home to an estimated 1,500 bald eagle nesting pairs. What you can do Other species in Florida still need our help. Animals such as the Florida snail kite, the gopher tortoise, and the Florida panther are all listed as federally endangered. In total, there are 133 animal species and over 550 plant species that are endangered or threatened in Florida. For a complete list of endangered and threatened species in Florida, visit: www. myfwc.com. ere are many small actions you can take to make a dierence. By Nicole Gonzalez For the News-Gazette Most teens in todays day and age reach over for a smartphone and spend countless hours staring at its LED screen. Fifteen-year-old Jerhemy Molano reaches over for a few gardening tools and hes ready to start his day. At 6-foot-2, Jerhemy towers over the small cabbages in his garden. His eyes twinkle with joy as he kneels beside them and observes the leafy greens he has just planted. What makes the Osceola County teen dierent from your average teen gardener is that he is on the autism spectrum. As a child, Jerhemy went through multiple diagnoses before counselors concluded that he had Aspergers Syndrome, which according to the Autism Society is a disorder placed within the umbrella diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. The Autism Society states that those with Aspergers Syndrome may be only mildly affected and frequently have good language and cognitive skills. They are proficient in knowledge categories of information. Jerhemys interest in gardening is a perfect example of this. When I was a little kid, I liked going into my grandparents backyard a lot, says Jerhemy. Every time that I would take a bite out of any fruit that was back there it was really good and I started thinking to myself, If I dont have to go to the supermarket, why dont I just plant it here? Jerhemy recalls planting corn with his grandparents when he was a younger, but it didnt actually grow. As time went on, Jerhemy was able to learn gardening basics from his grandparents and by reading books in the library. He likes to conduct research on ways he can improve his gardening skills. Reading gives me knowledge and lets me learn about things that I didnt previously know about, says Jerhemy. Some books have taught me how to grow certain herbs and others give me tips on how to ght o pests. Jerhemys former elementary school teacher from Sunshine State Elite Academy in Kissimmee, Noemi Velez, recalls his interest toward reading. He always had his nose stuck in a book, Velez says. I remember he was always carrying around different books about plants and animals and he knew every little fact about them. Long hours at the library gave Jerhemy the knowledge to improve his garden. It is now filled with an assortment of chives, peas, peppers, cucumbers, cilantro, and just about anything else you can name. I even have a red delicious apple tree, Jerhemy says proudly. People say that they dont grow in Florida, but they should come to my garden and check it out. Jerhemys passion for gardening seems to benet the whole family. According to his mother, Karimar Figueroa, its nice to see that her son is able to actually go outside and do something that makes him happy. Being out in his garden means the world to him, says Karimar. He can be there for hours on end because its ultimately what brings him peace. Sensory issues are a major characteristic regarding the autism spectrum disorder. is means that sights, smells and sounds easily influence those who are on the spectrum. Jerhemy says that the smells from dierent herbs and plants in his garden are what keep him at ease. I have morning glory in my garden and there is just something so satisfying about going out and being greeted by the sweet smell, says Jerhemy. According to the National Autistic Society, some autistic people have daily timetables so that they know what is going to happen and when. Routines can become almost ritualistic in nature, having to be followed precisely with attention paid to the tiniest details. Right before school each morning he will go to the garden and water the plants, says Karimar. Then when he gets back in the afternoon, hell spend more time in the garden to fertilize and take care of them. Jerhemy is happy to have the support of his family when it comes to his gardening hobby because they can all gain from it. I got a little stem of oregano brujo and it grew to be a giant bush, says Jerhemy. When I collect from the bush I can usually ll up like a bag or two, and my family really enjoys that. Jason Sosa, 15, is also autistic and one of Jerhemys fellow classmates. His own hobby has to do with technology, and he was able to share his thoughts regarding the importance behind having a hobby while on the spectrum. It makes us happy to work on something that we love, Jason says. At the end of the day, having a hobby is priceless. Jerhemys future goals and aspirations revolve around gardening and having his own farm in Puerto Rico. Karimar has mentioned that if she would need to move to make Jerhemys dream of having a farm come true, she would do it in a heartbeat because she knows that he has a green thumb and that he is positively committed toward his garden. Time ies when Im out in my garden, so I would denitely see myself gardening in the future, Jerhemy says. I cant imagine what my life would be like if I didnt have my garden.

In fact, the average U.S. household will spend 3 percent more on electricity bills this summer than in 2017, due to rising retail electricity prices and higher usage, according to the U.S. Energy Administrations estimation. Jennifer Franz, an energy efficiency expert at Lennox, says the good news is that homeowners can spend just a few hours before the season starts to make some quick fixes and easy improvements that will help them save energy and make them more comfortable all summer long, including: Mind the maintenance: Schedule an annual routine check-up for your heating and cooling equipment to keep the system running as eciently as possible, and check the air lter each month to see if it needs to be replaced. Keep it cool: Add extra insulation to the attic, which will help prevent your homes heating and cooling system from having to work harder to regulate the indoor temperature during the hottest months of the year. Control cracks: Seal cracks around windows and doors with caulk or weather stripping to prevent conditioned air from escaping. Set it and forget it: Install a programmable thermostat to adjust the temperature at certain times of the day, automatically regulating the temperature when youre away. In addition, always set your thermostat to the highest temperature you can stand to save the most money. Homeowners can save as much as 10 percent a year on cooling bills by setting their thermostat 7 to 10 degrees higher than its normal setting for eight hours a day, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Make a clean sweep: Decrease dust and dirt in the home by cleaning with non-toxic, natural household cleaners, such as baking soda, cornstarch or white vinegar, and using a vacuum cleaner with a high-eciency particulate air (HEPA) lter, which will trap small particles like dust that others recirculate back into the air. Seal the deal: Examine the homes pipes and connections, as well as all vents, and add caulking or sealant, if needed, to ensure they are air-tight. Clear the air: Breathe easier this summer by installing a whole-home air purication system, such as the new Lennox PureAir S, which is integrated with your homes heating and cooling system. ese systems are much more effective at eliminating airborne contaminants than portable room air cleaners and dont produce ozone, which is a known lung irritant. Franz says homeowners should pay special attention to their heating and cooling system, which accounts for more than half of a homes energy costs. e easiest thing homeowners can do to save energy and stay comfortable during the summer and all year long is to change the air lter on their system regularly; however, if your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, its time to consider replacing it with a more ecient system that will save signicant energy and help lower utility bills, she said.

In Osceola County, the single-family home market has seen its inventory fall 19 percent from March 2017, leaving a count of 1,342 homes on the market at the end of the month. Condos and townhomes in this area followed suit with a decline in inventory of 31.7 percent year-over-year, showing only 510 properties available at the end of March. e metro area that is comprised of Orlando, Kissimmee, and Sanford saw a decline in the inventory of single-family homes by 19.4 percent from this time last year with 6,574 homes on the market, while condos and townhomes in this region fell in supply to 1,689 units. is marks a decline of 28.3 percent year-over-year. And in statewide data, Florida inventory of single-family homes has fallen 7.5 percent from last year to 85,639 homes, while condos and townhomes are down 3.6 percent from last year to 55,157 units. In terms of the time these properties are available on the market, the MSI, or Months Supply of Inventory has been falling in step with the number of available dwellings. e Months Supply of Inventory measures how long it would take to deplete the supply of homes on the market at the current rate of sales. In Osceola County, single-family homes have an MSI reading of 3.1, which is down 20.5 percent from this time last year. Condos and townhomes in the county are down 46.4 percent to an MSI of 3.0 for comparison. In the Orlando-KissimmeeSanford metro area, MSI for single-family homes has fallen to 2.4, down 17.2 percent year-over-year.

And lastly, Florida single-family homes have seen MSI fall 7.3 percent to 3.8, while condos and townhomes throughout the state have an MSI of 5.9, falling 6.3 percent from this time last year. SNG 021018 Pending home sales inched higher for the second consecutive month in March, but unrelenting inventory constraints once again kept overall activity below year ago levels, according to the National Association of Realtors. e Pending Home Sales Index, https:// www.nar.realtor/pending-home-sales, a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings, inched up 0.4 percent to 107.6 in March from a downwardly revised 107.2 in February. Even with last months increase in activity, the index declined on an annualized basis (3 percent) for the third straight month. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says contract activity is moving sideways and not breaking higher despite the strong job-creating economy. Healthy economic conditions are creating considerable demand for purchasing a home, but not all buyers are able to sign contracts because of the lack of choices in inventory, he said. Steady price growth and the swi pace listings are coming o the market are proof that more supply is needed to fully satisfy demand. What continues to hold back sales is the fact that prospective buyers are increasingly having diculty nding an aordable home to buy. Added Yun, As anticipated, the multiple winter storms and unseasonably cold weather contributed to the decrease in contract signings in the Northeast. Looking ahead to the upcoming peak months for home sales, Yun believes that aordability will be a signicant topic of discussion and driving factor of if overall activity can break out above year ago levels. Price appreciation in most markets continues to outpace incomes, and the recent uptick in mortgage rates to over a four-year high only adds to the budget constraints aspiring buyers are feeling this spring.

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).

I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump is set to unveil his longawaited plan for reducing drug prices after more than a year of bold promises to tackle pharmacy costs that are squeezing millions of Americans. But the strategy to be out lined in a speech Friday will not include a key Trump campaign pledge to use the massive buying power of the federal government's Medicare program to di rectly negotiate lower drug prices for seniors. Instead, administration ofcials are previewing a raft of old and new ideas to increase competition and improve transparency in the notoriously complex drug pricing system with the ulti mate aim of wringing more savings for consumers. It's an approach that avoids a direct confron tation with the powerful pharmaceutical lobby, but it could also underwhelm Americans seeking relief from escalating prescription costs. "Consumers are ultimate ly going to be the judge of this announcement," said Dan Mendelson, a health care consultant. "If they don't address the cost that patients see at the pharmacy counter it's not going to be seen as responsive." A majority of Americans say passing laws to bring down prescription drug prices should a "top prior ity" for Trump and Congress, according to recent polling by the Kaiser Fam ily Foundation. As a candidate, Trump railed against the pharma ceutical industry, accusing companies of "getting away with murder." But as presi dent he has shied away from major reforms and staffed his administration with ap pointees who have deep ties to the industry, including health secretary, Alex Azar, a former top executive at Eli Lilly. Azar and other Trump ofcials have described the problem in stark terms and promised bold action. "Every incentive is to ward higher list prices be cause everyone in the system gets a cut off that list price except the patient," said Azar, speaking on "Fox and Friends" on Friday morning. He said one new proposal would allow senior citizens enrolled in Medicare who hit the catastrophic pe riod to pay nothing out of pocket, "so really relieve a huge burden on our senior citizens." Parts of the plan were previously released in the president's budget proposal and would require action by Congress. Those steps include, requiring insurers to share rebates from drug companies with Medicare patients and changing the way Medicare pays for high-priced drugs adminis tered at doctors' ofces. Trump staffers said the new steps coming Friday could be taken immedi ately by the administration without congressional lawmakers, who are mainly focused on November elec tions. The measures aim to increase competition, create incentives for drugmakers to lower initial prices and stop foreign governments from "freeloading" off U.S. pharmaceutical research. But the ofcials gave few specics. Public outrage over drug costs has been growing for years as Americans face pricing pressure from all sides: New medicines for life-threatening diseases often launch with prices exceeding $100,000 per year. And older drugs for com mon ailments like diabetes and asthma routinely see price hikes around 10 per cent annually. Meanwhile Americans are paying more at the pharmacy counter due to health insurance plans that require them to shoul der more of their prescrip tion costs. Trump ofcials have hinted for weeks that the plan, in part, will untangle the convoluted system of discounts and rebates between drugmakers and insurers, pharmacy benet managers and other health care middlemen. FDA Commission er Scott Gottlieb another Trump ofcial with industry ties says this lack of transparency creates a per verse system of incentives in which drugmakers and other health care companies benet from rising prices. "Right now, we don't have a truly free market when it comes to drug pric ing, and in too many cases, that's driving prices to un affordable levels for some patients," Gottlieb said in a speech last week. Experts who study drug pricing are encouraged that the discussion has moved from outrage to more so phisticated proposals for reform. "This is progress and I think there's no question that opening up the machine to make it more clear how it works will lead to change hopefully to construc tive change," said Dr. Peter Bach, director of Memorial Sloan Kettering's Center for Health Policy and Out comes. But others warn there is no guarantee that unraveling the current pricing-setting bureaucracy will lead to lower prices, because it all starts with drugmakers' initial prices. Drugmakers generally can charge as much as the market will bear because the U.S. government doesn't regulate medicine prices, unlike most other countries. Medicare is the largest purchaser of prescription drugs in the nation, cover ing 60 million seniors and Americans with disabilities, but it is barred by law from directly negotiating lower prices with drugmakers. Democrats have long favored giving Medicare that power, but Republicans tra ditionally oppose the idea. Allowing Medicare to ne gotiate prices is unaccept able to the powerful drug lobby, which has spent tens of millions of dollars since Trump's inauguration to inuence the Washington conversation around drug prices, including a highprole TV advertising cam paign portraying its scien tists as medical trailblazers. The drug industry's top lobbying arm, Pharmaceutical Research and Manu facturers of America, spent nearly $26 million to sway federal decision makers last year, according to records tallied by the non-prot Center for Responsive Poli tics. That spending total was the group's highest since the 2009 congressional battle that led to Obamacare.

On Friday, May 11 2018, Trump is scheduled to give his rst speech on how his admin istration will seek to lower drug prices. Trump plan for drug prices won't include direct negotiationsTrump's instinct in Korea crisis and elsewhere is 'go big'WASHINGTON (AP) The way President Donald Trump sees it, why go for a solid single when you can swing for a home run? Trump's upcoming summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un is only the latest exam ple of the president's go-big strategy. From tax reform to international trade to foreign policy, Trump has pursued a high-risk, high-reward ap proach that advisers say can help produce results on long standing problems and that critics warn could trigger dangerous repercussions all the way from a trade war to global conict. Drawn to big moments and bigger headlines, Trump views the North Korea sum mit as a legacy-maker for him, believing that the com bustible combination of his bombast and charm already has led to warmer relations between North and South. As he welcomed home three Americans who had been de tained in North Korea, Trump early Thursday used a tele vised, middle-of-the-night ceremony to play up both his statecraft and stagecraft. "I think you probably broke the all-time-in-history televi sion rating for three o'clock in the morning," Trump told reporters on the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews. Trump has also played the disruptor's role in recent weeks and months by with drawing the U.S. from the Iran nuclear deal, imposing sweeping tariffs on allies and announcing he's moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, which is claimed by both Israelis and Palestinians. It's all a sharp contrast to his play-it-safe predecessor. "You hit singles, you hit doubles; every once in a while we may be able to hit a home run," President Barack Obama said of his own for eign policy. "But we steadily advance the interests of the American people and our partnership with folks around the world." Not all of Trump's attention-grabbing gambits have worked and the poten tial risks going forward are daunting. His push to overturn Obama's landmark health care law ended in a humili ating defeat for the Repub licans. His decision to im pose new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports has left global markets in a state of ux and unnerved some of America's closest allies about the potential for a trade war. And his withdrawal from the international nuclear agreement with Iran, with strong support from Israel, has escalated tensions in the already volatile region. Critics say Trump some times focuses on bold gestures rst and fallout later. For now, scoring a diplo matic win with Pyongyang has become Trump's top fo cus. His outside-the-box ap proach to North Korea complete with ominous taunts of raining "re and fury" on the North while belittling its leader as "Little Rocket Man" alarmed many global capitals and much of Washington's national security establishment, increasing worries about nu clear war. But Trump believes it brought Kim to the negotiat ing table, with a summit be tween the two men now set for June 12 in Singapore. Trump told one condant that he now believes a deal with North Korea, rather than in the Middle East, could be his historic victory. White House ofcials also believe that a triumph on the Korean Peninsula something that has eluded the United States for generations could bol ster Trump's approval ratings, help inoculate him against the investigations swirling around him and maybe even trickle down to help Repub licans in this fall's midterm elections. While some White House aides characterized Trump's moves as evidence of bold thinking, there is also concern that he has little sense of the potential repercussions from some of his big moves, believing that if things don't work out, that he can always just reverse course. In the early months of his administration, Trump latched on to the belief that he could be the president to bring peace to the Middle East. Fond of the idea of mak ing history, the president told advisers he was driven to accomplish something that his predecessors could not and believed that his negotiating skills and strong relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could lead to the unprecedented achievement, according to four White House ofcials and outside advisers. At one moment last spring, Trump mused in the Oval Ofce that he wouldn't even re quire a second term to settle things in the region, accord ing to two people familiar with the exchange but not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations. Though he did break with tradition to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the White House plan bogged down and the divide between Israelis and Palestinians seems as intractable as ever, prompting Trump's attention shift to North Korea. Warned by Obama days after his elec tion that the threat posed by Pyongyang could dene his presidency, Trump answered Kim's threats with bellicose warnings of his own and rallied an international pressure campaign against North Ko rea. Some Republicans have suggested his efforts should bring him the Nobel Peace Prize, an idea Trump clearly savored at a recent rally in Michigan when the crowd chanted "Nobel." Asked about the chatter in the Oval Ofce this week, Trump said: "I want to get peace. It's the main thing. We want to get peace. That was a big prob lem, and I think it's going to work out well." Then he added his catchall caveat: "We'll see." Long before he was presi dent, the onetime New York real estate developer and reality television star often spoke about the benets of acting boldly. In "The Art of the Deal," he put it this way: "I like thinking big. I always have. To me it's very simple: if you're going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big." Trump appears to have embraced the "Great Man" theory of history, believing that individuals more than circumstances or trends al ter the course of events. In his 2016 GOP convention speech, he famously declared "I alone can x it," in refer encing the nation's problems. Trump and his team also believe that his bold tactics have the added benet for Trump of overshadowing the threats his administration faces from the ongoing Rus sia probe and the legal web surrounding his personal at torney, Michael Cohen, and porn actress Stormy Daniels. Rice University presidential historian Douglas Brin kley said Trump's diplomacy with North Korea is a "highrisk game." "But if he pulls off the de nuclearization of the North Korean Peninsula, it will be the landmark achievement," said Brinkley. "It's Trump's big going-to-China moment."

Now available at the lobby of the Osceola News-Gazette.108 Church Street, Kissimmee Fl 34771407-846-7600 PAHOA, Hawaii (AP) A Hawaii volcano is threat ening to blow its top in coming days or weeks after sputtering lava for a week, forcing about 2,000 people to evacuate, destroying two dozen homes and threaten ing a geothermal plant. Experts fear Kilauea volcano on the Big Island it could hurl ash and boul ders the size of refrigerators miles into the air. But scientists say an erup tive explosion would not be deadly if people stay out of closed areas of a national park around the volcano. "If it goes up, it will come down," said Charles Man deville, volcano hazards coordinator for the U.S. Geo logical Survey. "You don't want to be underneath any thing that weighs 10 tons when it's coming out at 120 mph (193 kph)." The added threat could ground planes at one of the island's two major airports and pose other dangers. The volcano park closed inde nitely Thursday night be cause of the risks. "We know the volcano is capable of doing this," Mandeville said, citing sim ilar explosions at Kilauea in 1925, 1790 and four other times over the last few thousand years. "We know it is a distinct possibility." He would not estimate the likelihood of such an explo sion, but said internal volca nic conditions are changing in a way that could lead to a blast in about a week. The volcano's internal plumbing could still prevent an explosion. If an explosive eruption happens, a summit blast could also release steam and sulfur dioxide gas. Kilauea has destroyed 36 structures including 26 homes since May 3, when it began releasing lava from vents about 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of the summit crater. Fifteen vents are now spread through the Leilani Estates and Lanipu na Gardens neighborhoods. Hawaii Gov. David Ige, a Democrat said crews at a geothermal energy plant near the lava outbreak ac celerated the removal of stored ammable fuel as a precaution. The Puna Geothermal Venture plant had about 50,000 gallons (189,270 liters) of pentane. It was removed early Thurs day. Barbara Lozano, who lives within a mile of the plant, said she would have thought twice about buying her property if she had known the risks. "Why did they let us buy residential property, know ing it was a dangerous situation? Why did they let people build all around it?" she asked. Avani Love, 29, moved to the Big Island about a month ago from Maui with her four children. They evacuated their home May 3, and only found out it was destroyed when a relative went back to get her per sonal belongings. While saying she's sad to have lost her home, she also feels a sense of renewal brought on by Pele, the Ha waiian volcano goddess, to correct overpopulation of the island. "Everyone comes here," she said. "When you have that, it's Pele's way of clear ing house and restoring the place. There's beauty and also darkness." No one lives in the im mediate area of the summit. Communities about 2 miles (3 kilometers) away could showered by pea-size rock fragments or dusted with nontoxic ash, said Tina Neal, scientist-in-charge at the Hawaii Volcano Obser vatory. What could happen is not an eruption of volcanic gases but mostly trapped steam from ash-heated groundwater released like in a kitchen pressure cook er, with rocks, said volca nologist Janine Krippner of Concord University in West Virginia. The problem is the lava lake at the summit of Kilauea is draining fast, about 6.5 feet (2 meters) per hour, Mandeville said. In little more than a week, the top of the lava lake has gone from spilling over the crater to almost 970 feet (295 meters) below the sur face as of Thursday morn ing, Mandeville said. The lava levels in the lake are dropping because lava is spewing out of cracks else where in the mountain, low ering the pressure that lled the lava lake. "This is a huge change. This is three football elds going down," Mandeville said. The fear is that it will go below the underground wa ter table another 1,000 feet (305 meters) further down and that would trigger a chain of events that could lead to a "very violent" steam explosion, Mandeville said. At the current rate of change, that is about six or seven days away. Once the lava drops, rocks that had been super heated could fall into the lava tube. And once the lava drops below the water table, water hits rocks that are as hot as almost 2,200 degrees (1,200 Celsius) and ashes into steam. When the water hits the lava, it also steams. And the dropped rocks hold that steam in until it blows. A similar 1924 explosion hurled pulverized rock, ash and steam as high as 5.4 miles (9 kilometers) into the sky, for several weeks. If another blast happens, the danger zone could ex tend about 3 miles (5 kilo meters) from the summit to land that all falls within the national park, Mandeville said. The small, aptly named town of Volcano, Hawaii, population 2,500, is about 3 miles (4.83 kilometers) from the summit. Janet Coney, ofce man ager of the Kilauea Lodge, an inn and restaurant, said ofcials told her lodge employees probably won't have to worry about rocks raining down on them but might experience falling ash.

(AP) Having lost ve of its 12 casinos over the past four years, Atlantic City will mark its 40th anniversary of casino gambling by reopen ing two of those shuttered properties, despite concern in some quarters that it might be repeating the same mistakes that got it into trouble in the rst place. The reopening this sum mer of the former Trump Taj Mahal as a Hard Rock casino, and the former Revel as the Ocean Resort Casino, is being hailed in this seaside gambling resort as a welcome recovery from the trauma of 2014, when four casinos shut down. (The Taj Mahal joined them in 2016.) And the owner of the Showboat hotel is considering reopening a casino there, as well. The party line in Atlantic City is that the reopened ca sinos particularly Hard Rock, with its proven worldwide ability to attract guests with its music-themed resorts will grow the market and not simply siphon off busi ness from weaker competi tors. Of course, that's exactly what Revel's managers said and that casino lasted barely over two years. "There is a lot of reason to hope that the reintroduction of two or even three casinos to Atlantic City may be a net positive for the resort," said Rummy Pandit, a gambling and tourism expert at New Jersey's Stockton University. "That is not to say that At lantic City won't experience some growing pains in the process. The pizza analogy is an accurate way of describing the situation facing Atlan tic City: No matter how you slice it, if you don't grow the pie, someone will go hungry." Nevada remains the nation's largest gambling mar ket. Atlantic City, where gambling began on May 26, 1978, was once No. 2 but in recent years fell to third be hind Pennsylvania. Joe Bogdovics, of Roe bling, New Jersey, and his wife Debbie were in Atlantic City this week for a billiards tournament usually held at Bally's. But they're open to trying out the two new ca sinos after staying at a Hard Rock in Cancun, Mexico, and loving the music and bustle. "It would be great if they brought that here," he said. Others will be a harder sell. Walt Swanson, of Knoxville, Tennessee, was in Atlantic City on a junket arranged by Harrah's, where he usually stays. "They just treat you better than other places," he said. "These new places will have a ways to go to get me to switch." Atlantic City's latest trouble started in 2006, when neighboring Pennsylvania brought competition to its doorstep. Then a worldwide nancial crisis and a hurri cane kept money tight, and even today, more casinos are being added to the Northeast market. But many things have changed since 2014. Internet gambling has steadily grown in New Jersey, providing new revenue. The promise of legal sports betting is just a Supreme Court decision away. The threat of in-state competition from northern New Jersey is off the table for now. And there are fewer lone-wolf casinos that are not backed by major chains able to carry them through lean times. Colorado developer Bruce Deik bought the former Revel in January for $200 million; it had cost $2.4 bil lion to build it. "There's no doubt that Hard Rock and our project will take some business from other houses," Deik said. "That's just the way the world works. But I believe that over two years, three years, collectively we can raise the level. A rising tide lifts all ships." Likewise, Jim Allen, CEO of Hard Rock International, predicts his project will not just redistribute Atlantic City's money. "It won't do us any good to take a $40 or $50 customer from a competitor in order to say we're busy," Allen said. "It's no good for Atlantic City to have one or two superstars, and everybody else struggle." Both properties plan to re open the same day, June 28. The ve casinos that closed since 2014 took about 11,000 jobs with them. Yet there is no denying that the seven surviving casinos have regained their balance and are doing better in a smaller market with less competition. Their gross operating prots increased by 22.5 percent last year, to $723 million. Wall Street analysts predict the two new additions will cannibalize some existing casinos' prots. They believe Hard Rock will bring new customers to Atlantic City, while expressing caution about Ocean Resort. Moody's Investors Service warned last month that the new competitors could lead to renewed casino closures "in an extreme scenario." "I think Hard Rock will be very additive to the mar ket; perhaps (Ocean Resort) will be as well," said Andrew Zarnett of Deutsche Bank Se curities. Lawrence Klatzkin of Rice, Voelker LLC worries about a renewed arms race in promotional spending. "If Ocean Resort opens up and has the same difculty as Revel did last time, do they get desperate and start throwing marketing money at the wall, and make everyone else have to do it, and margins go down, and make it tough for everyone to survive?" he said. Deik will open Ocean Resort without the crushing debt that suffocated Revel, and now owns the power plant whose expensive rates for utility service also ate into Revel's cash. He's also addressing what he consid ers aws in Revel's business plan, including promises to let patrons smoke, to open a buffet and to recongure the meandering casino oor. And the market is voting with its checkbook. Thomas Reeg, president of Eldo rado Resorts, upon buying Tropicana Entertainment last month, said he expects its At lantic City property to do less business once Hard Rock and Ocean Resort open. And he's OK with that. "In Atlantic City," he said, "we go in with eyes wide open."
Saturday, May 12, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E5 JERUSALEM (AP) Israel's defense minister Friday called on President Bashar Assad to "get rid" of Iranian forces in Syria, warning their continued presence would only cause trouble. Iran, meanwhile, in its rst ofcial reaction to Is raeli attacks on suspected Iranian targets in Syria, said Israel's attacks came "under fabricated and baseless excuses." Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Braham Ghasemi added that Damascus has the legitimate right to respond to what it said were repeated violations of the country's sovereignty. A hard-line Iranian cler ic threatened his country would retaliate if Israel "does anything foolish." Israel attacked dozens of suspected Iranian targets in Syria in overnight strikes this week that it said were in response to an Iranian rocket barrage. It was the most serious military confrontation between the two bitter enemies to date. The cross-border exchange gave way to a war of words. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called late Thursday for an immediate halt to "all hostile acts" to avoid "a new conagration" in the Middle East. Guterres' comments came as a calm night followed intense attacks on parts of Syria by Israel. Israel has called on the U.N. Secu rity Council and secretarygeneral to condemn Iran's attack on its positions in the Golan Heights, occupied and annexed by Israel. The Security Council, deeply divided over Syria, is highly unlikely to issue a statement and as of Friday morning no council mem ber had asked for a meeting. Speaking while tour ing the Israeli side of the occupied Golan Heights, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Israel is not looking for friction. "We did not come to the Iranian border, they came here," he said. Iran has advisers and experts and has backed tens of thousands of militiamen who are ghting alongside Assad's forces in the civil war. Israel has warned it will not tolerate its arch enemy Iran establishing a military presence on its doorstep. "I will take this oppor tunity to send a message to Assad: Get rid of the Iranians, get rid of Qasem Soleimani and the Quds Force, they are not helping you, they only cause dam age, and their presence will only cause problems and damages," Lieberman said. Soleimani is the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's elite Quds expedi tionary force which is ght ing in both Iraq and Syria. "Get rid of the Iranians and maybe it will be possible to have a different kind of life," Lieberman added. Israel and Iran have long fought each other through proxies, and with the new exchange each seemed to be sending a warning that a direct clash between them could swiftly escalate. The scope of the attacks which Israel called its largest in Syria since the 1973 Mideast war raised the specter of a full-edged war between Iran and Israel in Syria, a conict that could potentially drag the militant Hezbollah and Lebanon into the mix with devastat ing effects, although both sides appeared to signal they wanted the confronta tion to remain contained, at least for now. The rising tension in Syr ia came just as the United States decided to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and impose new sanctions, adding to the pressure on Tehran. Thousands of Iranians protested Friday across the country. Some protesters set a U.S. ag on re in Tehran with the nuclear deal scribbled on it. Others stomped on a picture of U.S. President Donald Trump. Although slogans of "Death to America" were few, many Iranians are sin cerely angry over the U.S. decision to withdraw from the deal and are siding with hard-liners who long have warned to be suspicious of the West. In Tehran, senior cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said the Western pressure will backre, threatening that Israel will pay the price. "The holy system of Is lamic Republic will step up its missile capabilities day by day so that Israel, this occupying regime, will become sleepless and the nightmare will constantly haunt it that if it does any thing foolish, we will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground," the hard-line cleric said during Friday sermons. The worshippers chanted: "Death to America," and "Death to Israel". Ghasemi, the foreign ministry spokesman, said the direct attacks on Syria come as the government of Assad is regaining control of territories from rebel ghters, accusing Israel and the United States of supporting the opposition which he called "terrorists." In the latest victory for Assad, Syrian police prepared Friday to take control of three suburbs of the capi tal Damascus previously controlled by the rebels. Opposition ghters and their families left Babila, Beit Sahem and Yalda, three southern suburbs that were held by rebels for years, Syrian state media and a war monitor said. The Britain-based Syr ian Observatory for Human Rights said the last group evacuated the suburbs Thursday night, bringing the total of those ghters and civilians who left the area since May 3 to a total of 8,400. Syria's state news agen cy SANA said opposition ghters who decided to stay in the suburbs will hand over the weapons and return to normal life. With the capture of the three suburbs, the only area outside government con trol in Damascus is that of the neighborhood of Hajar al-Aswad and the nearby Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk that are partially controlled by the Islamic State group. Government forces have been on the offensive against IS in the area since last month and its capture would boost security in Assad's seat of power. CITIZEN TRIBUNE WorldFriday, May 11, 2018 EEE-5 Israel calls on Syria's Assad to 'get rid' of Iranian forcesSingapore ties with US, NKorea make city-state summit siteSINGAPORE (AP) Singapore's diplomatic ties with North Korea and its relative proximity made the Southeast Asian city-state a natural choice for the historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Trump announced in a tweet Thursday the two leaders will meet in Singa pore on June 12. The city is "a great loca tion" for the summit, said Tom Plant, who special izes in nuclear and prolif eration issues at London's Royal United Services Institute. "Kim will be on friendly territory, not hostile territory. But he wouldn't be on home turf." Among the factors: It's closer for Kim than possi ble Europe venues, the experience of Singapore's se curity forces, and the fact that Pyongyang has had diplomatic relations with the country since 1975. Singapore is familiar ground for the reclusive communist country, which has its embassy in Singapore's central business dis trict. Single-party rule since Singapore gained independence in 1965 has ensured stability and fostered a security state that is among the world's most efcient. Located between two Muslim majority nations Malaysia and Indone sia with Islamic State group sympathizers, it has effectively checked terror ist threats. It's also a perfect venue for top security meetings protests are not allowed without permission, movement is strictly controlled and media are kept under control. Singapore is sometimes decried by civil libertar ians as repressive. Among the most common com plaints: preventive deten tion without warrants or charges; monitoring of private electronic or telephone communications also without warrants; the use of defamation laws to discourage government criticism and strict laws limiting freedom of asso ciation, according to the annual U.S. State Depart ment human rights report. North Korea's state companies have, in the past, conducted legal and illegal business dealings with Singaporean companies. The city-state, under pressure from the U.S. and a leaked U.N. report, ofcially cut off trade re lations with North Korea in 2017 to abide by sanc tions. Singapore also is welcome ground for the United States. It is a large trading part ner, the second-largest Asian investor, and a long time supporter of its military presence in the AsiaPacic region. It's also the regional headquarters of large U.S. companies in cluding Google, Facebook and Airbnb. Diplomatic relations between the two countries were established in 1966. "The North Korean side will likely have a very large number of logisti cal and protocol issues it wants addressed by the summit venue, so having a (North Korean) embassy in the country where the summit is to be held is likely a requirement," said Malcolm Cook, a senior fellow at the ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute in Singapore. Located just over 3,000 miles (4,800 kilometers) from North Korea, Singapore is comfortably within the ying range of its air craft. Flying to western Europe would require a stop or two to refuel. "Singapore is neither too far away as European nations are, allowing Kim Jong Un's private jet to make it here without re fueling, nor too close that Trump might be seen as 'giving way' to Kim by having to travel a longer distance than the latter," said Nah Liang Tuang, a research fellow at the Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies. Former U.S. Ambassador to Singapore David Adelman said Singapore was ideal because it has been "an honest broker between East and West." "Singapore has been a great friend to the U.S. but also Singapore has carefully worked to be a friend to all, which has earned it trust in capitals around the world," he said. Its free enterprise phi losophy welcomes trading partners from everywhere, regardless of politics. "We hope this meeting will advance prospects for peace in the Korean Penin sula," Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement. In 2015, Singapore was the site of another unprec edented summit between two leaders burdened with a legacy of mutual distrust: Chinese President Xi Jinping and rival Taiwan's then-President Ma Yingjeou, the rst such meet ing since the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949. It also has hosted re gional meetings, including the summits of the Asso ciation of Southeast Asian Nations in 2007 and 2018. Since 2002, an annual security conference has been held there, featuring defense chiefs and ofcials from countries including the U.S., China and South Korea. For such gatherings, roadblocks are set up around the summit venues, where armed Nepalese Gurkhas stand guard. In 2015, Gurkha ofcers red at a car that breached four roadblocks and crashed into a concrete barrier. The driver was killed and two passengers arrested in what turned out to be a drug-related crash, rather than an attack. Valued foreign guests won't be troubled by pro testers, either. Demonstrations in Singapore can only be held in a designated area, the 2.4-acre (0.9-hectare) Hong Lim Park. Amnesty International says amendments to the country's Public Order Act have given authori ties more power to restrict public assembly, and par ticipants in peaceful pro tests have been arrested.

Spears and Sam Asghari went through intricate movements, including Asghari lifting Spears several times and Spears doing a headstand and it seemed effortless. But in reality, Spears says he put her through it. "He's a trainer so everything has to be so perfect. We probably did 40 (takes) and I hurt myself," she joked in an interview with The Associated Press. "It looked great, he did a good job and he edited it really, really well." She said she'll often tap her oldest son, Sean Preston, to shoot her videos and photos for social media and those are usually in one take. "With (Sam), I did it a million times and I swear it was horrible, but when I do it just with my kids it's re ally fast," she said. Spears said she prefers challenging workouts because she has "always been an active person" and gets bored easily. She plans to ramp up those exercises in the coming weeks as she prepares to return to tour ing with the "Piece of Me" tour, sponsored by Pepsi. She'll also be one of the superstars included in the Pepsi Generations summer campaign where the com pany will reissue retro cans featuring acts that have participated in earlier campaigns, including Michael Jackson and Ray Charles. Spears' tour takes her Las Vegas residency on the road and will be the last opportunity for fans to see that show. She'll perform dates across North Amer ica and Europe. It kicks off July 12 in Washington, D.C. Spears said she looks forward to getting back on stage because it helps bring her out of her shell. "I'm very sensitive and sometimes I just want to run away because I'm a very shy person," she said in a phone interview Wednesday. "I think en ergy is contagious and when I get onstage with the dancers, we all kind of vibe off each other. We feel the same energy and we con nect." Watching Spears per form, it may be difcult to imagine that she may not be outgoing, but she said she has a stage persona that takes over in front of an audience. "I think it's healthy to be able to put on the persona of being condent," said Spears, who also said she's on a kick of reading selfhelp books. "I think it's an escape because honestly with how shy I really am, I don't think it's healthy," she said. Performing is "a boost to my condence. It's like an alter-ego type thing. Something clicks and I go and turn into this different person. I think it's kind of a gift to be able to do that."Spears says stage persona is 'healthy' way to combat shyness NBC says no culture of harassment in its news division APIn this June 13, 2017, file photo, U.S. singer Britney Spears performs during her concert in Taipei, Taiwan.

Kevin Foster, of Montclair, faces 16 charges including wire fraud, money laundering, bankruptcy fraud and tax evasion. Six of those charges were added Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. Foster, who served as Ne-Yos business manager, is ac cused of convincing the star to invest $2 million in a drink called OXYwater.

The academy announced the teams 16 members 13 of whom are women in a statement Wednesday. The Grammys announced the initiative after its CEO drew criticism for saying women need to step up when asked about the lack of female winners backstage at its 60th awards show in January. Other members include artists Cam and Andra Day, and BET chief executive Debra Lee. The task force chairs is Tina Tchen, former chief of staff to Michelle Obama, who has spent the last two months assembling the team. The academy says its intended to uncover unconscious biases and other barriers that impede womens success in the music industry.BY DAVID BAUDER AP Media WriterNEW YORK (AP) NBC's internal investigation following Matt Lauer's ring says it doesn't believe there is a culture of sexual harass ment at the news division and that current news executives weren't aware of the former "Today" show anchor's behavior until the complaint that doomed him. Investigators also said more needs to be done to en sure that the more than 2,000 employees at NBC News can talk about bad behavior with out fearing retaliation, lead ing NBC News Chairman Andy Lack to establish a way this can be done outside the company. Despite releasing the re port publicly, NBC was criti cized for not allowing outsid ers to look at its practices. Some suggested it damages the report's credibility. "No one is going to be ful ly candid when speaking to management for fear of los ing their jobs," said Eleanor McManus, a co-founder of Press Forward, an organiza tion of women who worked in the news industry and ex perienced sexual misconduct. "News organizations, jour nalists and media all hold corporations, governments and individuals to higher standards in similar instanc es, so it's concerning that NBC would not choose to follow those same standards itself." The review by lawyers means "that care was taken at every step to avoid liabil ity," said Jennifer Drobac, an Indiana University professor and expert in employment law. "If this investigation also promotes a safer work environment, then that is an added benet for all." NBC Universal's general counsel, Kimberley Harris, conducted the investigation. Harris' report was primarily concerned with Lauer, and no specic complaints about others were discussed. There was no mention of a former NBC News employee's accu sation last month that former "Nightly News" anchor Tom Brokaw made unwanted ad vances on her, which he has denied. NBC said the work of its all-female investigative team was reviewed and approved by two outside rms. "NBC Universal's investigation was thorough, objective and conducted at the corporate level, outside the News division," said Hil ary Smith, network spokes woman. Lauer was red in Novem ber after it was found he had an inappropriate sexual relationship with another NBC employee. Three additional women subsequently com plained about Lauer. Investigators found no evidence that anyone "in posi tion of authority" at NBC News knew that Lauer had sexual relationships with others in the company until the Nov. 27 complaint by a wom an about an affair that began at the 2014 Winter Olympics. Still, two of the four women who complained about Lauer said they believed someone in management knew about his behavior. Former "Today" anchor Ann Curry had said in a news interview that she had gone to management to say they should watch Lauer after another woman had told her Lauer had harassed her. But NBC's report said Curry declined to reveal to investiga tors whom she spoke to and that no current or past man agers interviewed by investi gators said they'd spoken to her about the issue. Curry was not immediately available to clarify that on Wednesday. The report said Lauer, who is married, was irtatious and engaged in sexual banter in the ofce. Several women said he had complimented them on their appearance in a sexually suggestive way. Investigators threw cold water on a published report that a button allowed Lauer to lock his ofce door with out getting up from his desk. The button closed the door, but didn't lock it, the report said. Some of the 68 people interviewed said they were aware of other rumored ex tramarital affairs in the news division. Most were already known and dealt with; some are being looked into, the re port said. "The investigation team does not believe that there is a widespread or systemic pattern of behavior that violates company policy or a culture of harassment in the News Division," Harris' report said. The report discussed rea sons why some at NBC are reluctant to come forward with complaints includ ing glass-walled Human Resources ofces that made them question whether their concerns would be kept qui et.
Saturday, May 12, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E7 WASHINGTON (AP) Already under investigation for a payment to a porn star, President Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney is fac ing intensifying legal and ethical scrutiny for selling his Trump World experi ence and views at a hefty price to companies that sought "insight" into the new president. One company, pharma ceutical giant Novartis, acknowledged Wednesday it paid Michael Cohen $1.2 million for services, though they ended after a single meeting. Others, in cluding some with major regulatory matters before the new administration, acknowledged payments totaling hundreds of thou sands of dollars over at least several months. The corporate ties could suggest Cohen was ped dling his inuence and proting from his relationship with the president. They also raise questions about whether Trump knew about the arrange ment. Cohen's corporate ties were rst revealed in a de tailed report released by an attorney for pornographic lm actress Stormy Daniels. The report alleged that Cohen used a company he established weeks before the 2016 election to receive the payments from a variety of businesses including $500,000 from one associated with a Russian billionaire. Financial documents reviewed by the Associated Press ap pear to back up much of attorney Michael Avenat ti's report. Cohen's lawyers said late Wednesday that much of the information released by Avenatti was "com pletely inaccurate." They told a New York judge that Avenatti made statements "in an apparent attempt to prejudice and discredit Mr. Cohen" as he seeks to intervene in a civil case Cohen brought stemming from April 9 raids on his home and ofce. The raids were carried out by federal agents looking for evi dence in a criminal probe. The lawyers wrote that some of the information Avenatti published Tues day did appear to come from Cohen's actual bank records. Aventti responded on Twitter, saying the attor neys "fail to address, let alone contradict, 99% of the statements in what we released. Among other things, they effectively concede the receipt of the $500,000 from those with Russian ties." Three companies con rmed the payments, including Novartis and AT&T, both saying Co hen's Essential Consultants was hired to help them understand the new president during the early days of the Trump admin istration. Novartis said in a statement that it paid Cohen $100,000 a month for a yearlong contract, thinking the longtime New York legal "xer" with few Washington ties could ad vise on health care matters. After a single meet ing they decided "not to engage further." Some of the companies that engaged Cohen also had contact with Trump personally. AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson met with him during the tran sition and has visited the White House as the company has sought approval to absorb Time Warner. The current CEO of No vartis attended a dinner with Trump at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, this year, though the company stressed that the agree ment with Cohen's com pany predated his time as CEO and he was not involved with the deal. Just what Cohen was selling was a key question Wednesday, particularly given that public records show he is not a registered lobbyist. Cohen could enter these relationships without violating federal lobbying laws if he did not seek to inuence Trump on the companies' behalf. But hiring Trump's per sonal attorney for advice on how to understand the president would be highly unusual. Public Citizen President Robert Weissman said Cohen's consulting work sounds more like pay-toplay lobbying. "It stretches the imagination that the work was just for advice. There is no reason that he would have any blinding insights," Weissman said. "Sending money to a shell company, instead of his business, that sets off some alarm bell. Nothing of this seems right." Some of the dealings have caught the attention of the special counsel in vestigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. A spokesman for No vartis said the company was contacted in Novem ber by Robert Mueller's ofce regarding its agreement with Essential Consultants, which expired this year. AT&T also said it was contacted last year by Mueller's ofce "regarding Michael Cohen." The company said it "cooper ated fully, providing all information requested in November and December of 2017." AT&T added that its consulting contract with Cohen expired at the end of the year and it has received no questions since. Cohen also used the company to pay a $130,000 payment to Daniels just before the 2016 election in exchange for her silence about an alleged sexual en counter with the president. Cohen is under investiga tion by federal prosecutors in New York, but has not been charged. Getting into a taxi in New York City Wednesday, Cohen said of Av enatti, "His document is inaccurate," according to NBC News. Cohen has told associates that Avenatti's claims are overheated, and he has maintained that he has not done anything wrong, according to a person fa miliar with the attorney's views but not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations. Cohen, who until January 2017 worked for the Trump Organization, was a xture in the company's headquarters in Trump Tower in the weeks before the president took ofce. Ex-campaign ofcials did not recall Cohen or Trump ever discussing Cohen's plans to launch consulting rm, according to three ex-campaign ofcials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss pri vate conversations. Some who used to work for Trump defended Cohen's actions, assuming he did not break any regula tions about lobbying. "Corporations want to pay for insight, advo cacy and expertise on a White House," said former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg. "Michael offered that. He didn't do anything wrong, he did what lots of people have done over the years." The Treasury Depart ment's Ofce of the Inspector General said Wednesday it was inves tigating how allegations about Cohen's banking records became public, a response to the memo released by Avenatti. Inspector general counsel Rich Delmar said the agency's actions stem from its authority as the federal agency that analyzes banking records for potential illegal activity. Under the Bank Secrecy Act, nancial institutions must monitor their customers' activities and report suspicious transactions to the government. But that information is supposed to remain condential. Avenatti, who has not disclosed where he got his information or released any documents, declined to comment on the probe. But he has called on Co hen and Trump to release their banking records and has urged the Treasury De partment to release a socalled suspicious activities report on Essential Consultants. According to Avenatti's memo, Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian billionaire, and his cousin, Andrew Intrat er, "routed" eight payments totaling about $500,000 to Cohen's company between January and August 2017. The payments were made by Columbus Nova, an American investment company, Avenatti alleges. Andrey Shtorkh, a spokesman for Vekselberg said in a statement that Vekselberg did not have a "contractual relationship" with Cohen or his rm. Columbus Nova's lawyer, Richard Owens, said the company hired Cohen after Trump's inauguration in January 2017 as a busi ness consultant "regarding potential sources of capital and potential investments in real estate and other ventures," but that it had nothing to do with Vekselberg. At the time of the payments, there was an FBI counterintelligence investigation, which special counsel Mueller took over last May, into Russian election interference and any possible coordination with Trump associates. Vekselberg was targeted for U.S. sanctions by the Trump administration last month. He built his for tune, currently estimated by Forbes at $14.6 billion, by investing in the alumi num and oil industries. More recently, he has ex panded his assets to include industrial equipment and high technology. AT&T said in a state ment that Essential Con sultants was one of several rms it "engaged in early 2017 to provide insights into understanding the new administration." Avenatti alleged that the company made four $50,000 payments to Cohen totaling $200,000 in late 2017 and early 2018. AT&T said Cohen's company "did no legal or lobbying work for us, and the contract ended in December 2017."

Page E8, PAHOA, Hawaii (AP) Hawaii's Kilauea volcano could soon send boulders and ash shooting out of its summit crater in the kind of explosive eruption last dis played nearly a century ago. Scientists said Wednes day the risks of an explosive summit eruption will rise in coming weeks as magma drains down the ank of the volcano toward the area lava started erupting from ssures in a residential neighborhood last week. A summit explosion could also release ash, steam and sulfur dioxide gas. Kilauea has destroyed 36 structures including 26 homes since it began releasing lava from vents about 25 miles (40 kilo meters) east of the summit crater. There are now 15 of the vents spread through the Leilani Estates and neighboring Lanipuna Gardens neighborhoods. Hawaii Gov. David Ige said a geothermal energy plant near the lava outbreak was accelerating its remov al of stored ammable gas as a precaution. The Puna Geothermal Venture plant has about 50,000 gallons (189,270 liters) of pentane Ige, a Democrat, expected it be removed by the end of Thurs day. It would be "very, very hazardous" if a volcanic vent opened under the facility where the fuel is stored, the governor said. The plant, which is owned by Ormat Technologies of Reno, Nevada, is across a highway from where lava has been erupting. In coming weeks, the summit crater could eject blocks up to 2 yards (1.8 meters) in diameter a little less than a mile (1.6 kilome ters) away, the United States Geological Survey said. It could also send pebbles shooting into the air several miles away, the agency said. Distant communities such Hilo, about 30 miles (48 ki lometers) away, could get a dusting of ash. The receding lava lake resembles conditions seen before a major summit eruption in 1924, said Tina Neal, scientist-in-charge at the USGS Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatory. That explosion killed one person and sent rocks, ash and dust into the air for 17 days. This event could occur again when the summit lava lake drops so low that groundwater can ow into the conduit that feeds magma to the crater. The magma would heat the wa ter and create steam would push accumulated rocks out in an explosion. Don Swanson, a geolo gist with the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said the magma is likely to drop be low the water table around the middle of the month. Scientists don't know how long after that it an explosion could occur. "We suspect it's a rapid process. We really don't know for certain," he told reporters on a conference call. No one lives in the im mediate area of the summit crater. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which in cludes the crater and sur rounding region, announced Wednesday that it will close Friday in anticipation of the possible explosive event. "It seems pretty safe to me right now but they'd know best," said Cindy Woodd, who was visiting from Brit ish Columbia, Canada. "We don't know what's going on underground. Life and safety is what's most impor tant." Authorities previously or dered nearly 2,000 residents to leave the neighborhoods in and around the vents in the mostly rural district of Puna. But some ignored the order and stayed to watch over their property. Author ities went door-to-door in Lanipuna to get people out of their homes on Tuesday. Police said Wednesday they arrested a man suspect ed of burglarizing homes in Leilani Estates. A resident saw the man leaving his house when he returned to retrieve personal belong ings. The resident and a friend took the suspect to police ofcers, who arrest ed him. Some residents have re fused to follow evacuation orders because of fears their homes will be looted.

Port Heiden's Tribal Coun cil President John Christensen, Jr. was on a beach ride with four-wheelers April 7 and smelled something foul, he said Wednesday. "We thought something was dead, so we were look ing for dead sea otters or seals on the beach so we could report them to the LEO (Local Environmental Ob server) Network," he said. He followed his nose for a couple of miles and was star tled to see a beach crowded with walruses. "We were wondering what those white things in the sky were," he said. "You could see their tusks in the air. When we got closer, we could see their bodies." Two weeks later, Christensen saw more than a thou sand walruses gathered about 20 miles (32 kilometers) outside the village. Joel Garlich-Miller, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist with a focus on wal ruses, is not sure why they are gathering on the Alaska Peninsula, the land mass that juts from mainland Alaska toward the Aleutian Islands, but it may be related to food availability. Male and female walruses spend winters in the Bering Sea but separate when ice recedes with warmer tem peratures. Females and their calves ride the sea ice north all the way through the Bering Strait into the Chukchi Sea, using ice as a platform to dive for clams and other mol lusks and rest. Male walruses traditionally spend summers in the Bering Sea, often on islands or remote locations in Bristol Bay roughly 130 miles (209 kilometers) north of Port Heiden, Garlich-Miller said. In the late 1980s, as many as 10,000 walruses would gather on Round Island, part of a state wildlife sanctuary. In recent years, however, only 2,000 to 3,000 show up on Round Island, GarlichMiller said. That could be an effect of sea ice not forming as far south as in past years and male walruses spending more time in the northern Bering Sea, he said. However, big bull walruses regularly go on foraging trips of ve to seven days before "hauling out" to rest on land and may be spreading out to nd better areas for diving, he said. "They are trying to op timize their foraging," he said. "One can imagine these many thousands of animals can probably put a hurt on some of the benthic resources they're targeting." A chief concern for the agency is keeping walruses safe in the resting areas. Noisy approaches by people can startle herds, sending walruses stampeding into water, which can crush and kill vulnerable animals. Frequent disturbances also can drive walruses away from preferred resting areas, Garlich-Miller said, causing them to expend more energy foraging and affecting their overall body conditions.

AroundOsceola.com KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) Tens of thousands of Tanzania's ethnic Maa sai people are homeless after the government burned their houses to keep the savannah open for tour ism beneting two for eign safari companies, a U.S.-based group charged Thursday. Villagers in northern Tanzania's Loliondo area, near the Ngorongoro Cra ter tourism hotspot, have been evicted in the past year and denied access to vital grazing and watering holes, said the new report by the California-based Oakland Institute policy think tank. "As tourism becomes one of the fastest-growing sectors within the Tanzanian economy, safari and game park schemes are wreaking havoc on the lives and livelihoods of the Maasai," said Oakland In stitute's Anuradha Mittal. "But this is not just about a specic company it is a reality that is all too famil iar to indigenous commu nities around the world." Allegations of wrongdoing have persisted in recent years against Tanza nia Conservation Limited, an afliate of the U.S.based Thomson Safaris, and Ortello, a group that organizes hunting trips for the royal family of the United Arab Emirates. Young Maasai herders are so afraid of authorities that they "ee when they see a vehicle approach," thinking it might carry representatives of foreign safari companies, the re port said. Concern for the Maasai has been raised at home and abroad by rights groups such as Minority Rights Group International and Survival Interna tional, which has warned that the alleged land grabs "could spell the end of the Maasai." The Maasai, hundreds of thousands of cattle herders who inhabit the savan nah in southern Kenya and parts of neighboring northern Tanzania, need land to graze their animals and maintain their pas toralist lifestyle. But the land bordering Tanzania's famous Serengeti National Park is also a wildlife cor ridor popular with tourists. The east African nation's government depends substantially on tourism rev enue to nance its budget. The government has pri oritized safari groups at the expense of indigenous communities, said Hellen Kijo-Bisimba, head of the Tanzania Legal and Hu man Rights Centre. "The government has been reviewing boundaries and subsequently evicting communities in the name of conservation," she told The Associated Press. "In my understanding the con servation should have been made to benet people, and if people are affected then it calls for worries. The Maasai community (is) indeed suffering." A court in the regional capital, Arusha, ruled against Loliondo's Maasai in 2015 when it decided that Thomson Safaris legally purchased 10,000 acres of a disputed 12,617 acres in 2006. The Maasai appealed and the case is pending. Thomson Safaris did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Tanzania's Tourism Per manent Secretary Gaud ence Milanzi denied the Maasai are being targeted, saying the government is working to improve their welfare by embracing modern methods of live stock keeping. "There is no single group of people, say Maa sai, who are intimidated, arrested, beaten or forced out of their land," Milanzi said.

Since taking ofce in late 2011, Kim has occasionally own inside North Korea. The recent foreign trip, albeit not far from the North Korean border, comes ahead of his expected summit with President Donald Trump aimed at ending the North Korean nuclear problem. Was Kim trying to test his jet's ight capacity because his summit with Trump could happen in Singapore? Did he sim ply want to show that he's different from his ightaverse father? Or perhaps he had urgent matters to discuss with Chinese Pres ident Xi Jinping that pre cluded the time-consuming train he took in March to Beijing to meet Xi. Some things to know about the Kim family's travel habits:THE GOSHAWKKim's ofcial plane is a remodeled version of the Soviet-made IL-62. North Korea calls it "Chammae-1," named after the goshawk, North Korea's national bird. South Korean media say the plane can y at a maximum speed of 900 kilometers (560 miles) per hour and carry about 200 people. Its maximum ight range is about 9,200 kilometers (5,720 miles) but it has reportedly never own that far. Some experts say one reason why North Korea apparently wants to have a Kim-Trump summit in Pyongyang, the North's capital, is that Kim's plane might not be able to y to faraway places like Switzerland, Sweden or Wash ington. Kim's younger sis ter, Kim Yo Jong, used "Chammae-2," the same kind of aircraft as her brother's, when she visited South Korea in February to attend the opening cere mony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. She be came the rst member of North Korea's ruling Kim family to visit South Korea since the end of the 195053 Korean War.PREVIOUS AIR TRAVELSchooled for several years in Switzerland, Kim is believed to have traveled by air often as a teenager. After he became North Korea's leader, state media said he was aboard Cham mae-1 when he reviewed air force planes taking part in combat aeronautics contests and inspected construction work in Pyong yang. North Korean media photos also showed Kim looking out the windows of his plane; walking down the stairs from the plane, and walking with his wife, Ri Sol Ju, on a red carpet placed on an airstrip. Other photos showed Kim in the cockpit of a ghter jet.DIFFERENT FROM HIS FATHERBefore Kim's Dalian trip, no North Korean leader had publicly gone abroad by air since Kim's grandfather, North Korea founder Kim Il Sung, ew to the Soviet Union in 1986. Kim Jong Il ew by plane to a conference in Indonesia with Kim Il Sung, his father, in 1965. But after that he reportedly never ew because of a fear of heights. During his 1994-2011 rule, Kim Jong Il made about a doz en known overseas trips, mostly to China, and con ducted countless inspections of military posts, factories and other places all by train. Analysts say Kim Jong Un's air travel may be aimed at showing he's a condent, normal leader who meets international standards. South Korean media say Kim Jong Il had several luxurious trains equipped with reception halls, con ference rooms and hightech communication facilities. To guard against possible attacks, his train reportedly traveled with two other trains, with one running ahead of his to check the safety of the rail line while another carried security agents and fol lowed behind. According to state media, Kim Jong Il died of a heart attack dur ing a train trip. When Kim Jong Un visited Beijing, which is much farther than Dalian, in March for talks with Xi in his rst overseas trip since his inauguration, he took a deep green special train reminiscent of his fa ther's. Last month, he took a black Mercedes limou sine to return home after a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jaein at a village along the Koreas' border.

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.

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 E12, 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.
Saturday, May 12, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E13 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.
