By Charlie Reed For the News-Gazette Kissimmee resident Naji Aalim is one of 1.5 million Floridians who cant vote because of a previous felony conviction. Aalim nished serving his prison sentence for burglary a decade ago. Since then, he has twice applied and been denied his constitutional right to vote by the state of Florida. I did the time, I served my sentence, I paid my debt to society. en I get out and I cant get my rights back, said Aalim. e rst time he applied, he said, state ocials told him he hadnt been out of prison long enough. The second time, they told him he still needed to pay restitution, which Aalim has disputed and even tried to pay, but to no avail. Florida is one of only four states in the U.S. that permanently strips the right to vote from convicted felons. ey can apply for their voting rights to be restored, but the process in Florida is tough and has become even more stringent in recent years under Gov. Rick Scott. In March, a federal judge in Florida ordered Scott and the Cabinet to dismantle Floridas fatally awed system of arbitrarily restoring voting rights to felons and to replace it. An appeals court, however, in April sided with Scott, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and two other Cabinet members who constitute the states clemency board. After taking office in 2011, Scott and Bondi played key roles in changing the process to effectively make it harder for felons to get their rights restored. Under the current process, felons must wait By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Lack of rain in March and April sent water levels in Central Florida plummeting. Downpours were in the forecast this week, but last week, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) announced plans to stop navigation out of the Lake Tohopekaliga lock because levels are so low. According to a May 9 SFWMD news release, the Southport lock on the south shores of Lake Toho would close once downstream water levels fell to 48.5 feet above mean sea level. e release also stated that SFWMD water managers would work to lessen the decline in Lake Kissimmee while maintaining enough flow to the Kissimmee River to protect fish and aquatic organisms. However, the release stated, reductions in ow from Lake Kissimmee will also result in declining water levels in the Kissimmee River. SFWMD advised boaters to exercise caution in lakes, canals and the Kissimmee River. Levels are currently at 49.5 feet, thanks to weekend downpours that showered the area with some much needed rain. But Osceola County Natural Resources Manager Terry Torrens said the lock isnt in the clear yet. The rain definitely doesnt hurt, but things have been dry for a while, she said. Its hard to tell just how much this recent rain will help.SummerFest at Gaylord Palms.e resort is kicking o the new promotion designed for the whole family .Page 11.Teachers union plans protest over insurance hike By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Educator-led walkouts and protest in states such as Arizona, West Virginia and Oklahoma have re-ignited debate over better pay and working conditions for public school teachers in America. Its a battle Osceola County educators also continue to ght. As another school year comes to a close, questions over proposed health insurance increase still loom for more than 6,600 district employees. Teachers and support staff in Osceola County stand to see as much as a 65 percent monthly premium increase if proposed changes go through. Teacher protests are tentatively scheduled for May 31 along U.S. Highway 192, but Osceola County Education Association President Apryle Jackson said she doesnt know how successful it will be. e teachers are tired, Jackson said. Many of them feel like it wont make a dierence, and theyre just tired of ghting it. Only 13 states allow teachers to go on strike, and Florida is not one of them. Unlike their colleagues in Oklahoma or Arizona, educators can lose their retirement plans and have their teaching certicates taken away for three years if they participate in a strike. Florida unions who organize strikes face a minimum $20,000 ne. Jackson said the purpose of OCEA is to act as an advocate for educators by providing legal guidance and a place at the bargaining table when salary and benet are negotiated. But unions, especially those in Florida, face an increasing number of obstacles, including a recent law signed by the governor in March. HB 7055 the massive education bill that includes provisions for charter schools, scholarships and tax credits also includes a measure that can revoke certification for a teachers union if less than 50 percent of potential members pay dues. Jackson said OCEA membership currently ranges between 53 and 59 percent, which worries her. Teachers need to have equal opportunities, equal representation, she said. A union gives them a fair playing eld where everyone has to follow the contract. Low water levels, sand bars cause issues on Lake TohoState Rep.

The two groups are headed for a special magistrate trial May 31 where an uninvolved third party will hear evidence from both parties before deciding whether health premiums and other proposals should go into eect. Ultimately though, the district makes the nal call. Many challenges teachers face arent easily corrected by the school district, though, which stands to receive even less state funding this upcoming school year. Student disciplinary and work ethic issues, as well as countless hours of unpaid overtime and volunteering, are all part of the job, which is why Jackson said Osceola County teachers should be better compensated for their work. Its not an easy job, she said. You do it because you love the kids, but its not an easy job. School Board members and district ocials face a dicult job as well. Chief Financial Officer Sarah Graber said the district has tried to keep health insurance costs low for as long as possible. But, she acknowledged, the district cant plunge itself further into the red, either. You cant just not pay your bills, said Graber in reference to the districts current $2.4 million health care trust fund debt. She added that Osceola County is one of only three districts in Florida that still offers a free basic health insurance single employee plan. But Graber admitted that even this could absolutely go away next year as national health care costs continue to climb. at makes it likely that insurance premiums will rise again next year as well, she said. School Board President Ricky Booth said board members would continue to work on its health insurance program and design. The Florida education funding program is complex, and isnt always advantageous to Osceola County, he said. But were still going to explore the best options out there for our teachers. Booth said it is also important to continue working with leaders at every level to help improve funding for education. Were not the only entity, private or public, with rising health care costs, he said. ese are tough decisions, but we dont control the health care market. By Rachel Christian Staff Writer A nonprofit in Osceola County is working to make early education more accessible to local low-income families. Charlie Rodgers, chief executive ocer of the Early Learning Coalition, went before Kissimmee city ocials earlier this month to discuss two options available to young children and their parents. Rodgers told the board hes worried that not enough families are aware of these free services. Its vitally important that we work with these children and families to make sure theyre given the right stimulation, so theyre ready and prepared to be successful, he said. The Osceola County Early Learning Coalition was created by Florida statue in 1999. It is one of 30 learning coalitions in the state, and each receives funding and support from the Florida Department of Education. e coalition currently serves more than 4,500 children. Its recently approved annual budget of nearly $15 million allows the collation to operate two major early learning programs a voluntary pre-kindergarten (VPK) program and a school readiness program. Once a child is accepted into either program, parents can choose from about 200 certied and accredited local child care providers.

Thursday, May 17, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 3 LOCAL OSCEOLA COUNTY HISTORY E stablished in 1884, Narcoossee became a colony comprised of English immigrants. ey began to meet for worship services regularly by 1887, sometimes gathering in homes; when weather was pleasant, they would meet outdoors. Soon, consideration was given to building an Episcopal church in Narcoossee and fundraising eorts began. Some funds for the completion of the church in 1897 did come from England, but the majority of money was raised locally. Rumors circulated over the years claiming that the wood & furnishings were sent over from England. Records show the lumber for the construction of the church and the roof shakes (shingles) came from the Fell-Davidson sawmill in Narcoossee, the bell (from a factory in Ohio) was previously used at the Runnymede Hotel and the Gothic style church was designed by an Orlando architect. Consecrated the Episcopal Church of St. Peter on February 9, 1898 by Bishop William Crane Gray, D.D., Bishop of the Diocese of Southern Florida and the Rev. H.B. Stuart-Martin, it was a rustic brown church nestled among the pine trees. e steeple stood 72 feet (at that time, the tallest in the state) and was topped by a four foot white wooden cross.It could seat 50 people with the wainscoting stained dark and upholstered spring green and gold cushions on the dark brown cypress pews, all situated beneath vaulted ceilings and exposed hand carded beams. A wooden baptismal font was given by the Paul Clisby Brewer family in 1899 To the Glory of God in Loving Memory and in 1910, the Cadman family donated a pulpit in memory of Colonel William Edwin Cadman. e building served the congregation until 1920, then sat dormant and neglected until about 1930. St. Lukes in St. Cloud outgrew their building and a deal was made to move the little brown church from Narcoossee to 1007 Florida Avenue in St. Cloud. e two church structures would join as one and become e Church of St. Luke and St. Peter. A Rededication service was held on May 17, 1931. e church made another move to Illinois Avenue and 10th Street in 1970, where it was joined with the old St. omas Aquinas Catholic Church building. Modications were made to the structures, along with treatment for termites, and many additional repairs were made over the ensuing years. On January 13, 1980, e Church of St. Luke and St. Peter was admitted to full parish status and on October 21st, Harry H. Leventis was installed as the rst rector. In 1987, the church congregation once again experienced growing pains and began a search for property where they could relocate and build a new church building. A childrens day care agreed to lease the old buildings located on the corner of Illinois Ave. and 10th Street with the option to buy. e Church of St. Luke and St. Peter became a reality in 1990, on the Canoe Creek Road property they purchased. Kids Kastle Daycare Inc. is still in operation in the old church buildings on the corner of Illinois Avenue and 10th Street. ank you to our friends at the Osceola County Historical Society for providing the editorial content and photos to bring this section to you.

HELPING BUILD A STRONGER COMMUNITY. VOTINGContinued from Page 1 five to seven years after their sentences are complete to apply to have rights restored. Aer applications are led, the process can take years to complete. Only about 8 percent of applications are eventually approved. Still, a movement to automatically restore voting rights to Floridians with felony convictions amassed enough support 1 million signatures of support from Florida voters to get the issue on the November ballot. Amendment 4, if passed, would automatically restore voting rights to people with prior felony convictions upon completion of their sentences, including prison, parole, and probation. e proposed amendment specically excludes those convicted of murder or felony sexual oenses. Congressman Darren Soto (D-Kissimmee) last week hosted a town hall meeting in Haines City on the issue with Sen. Bill Nelson and fellow Congressman Cedric Richmond, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus from Louisiana. Florida is an extreme outlier when it comes to restoring voting rights, an extreme minority among the rest of the country, Soto said. Many states do this automatically. Its only four states in the south that dont. Floridas constitution automatically bars exfelons from voting. The measure was adopted by the state Legislature following the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which ended segregation in public places and banned employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Its considered one of the crowning legislative achievements of the civil rights movement. is was a discriminatory response to our country establishing equal rights and justice for communities of color. It harkens back to a darker time in Floridas history, Soto said. I think once people realize the context of this law one that only four other states in the south have they will see why we need to turn the page. Floridas restoration system disproportionately aects African-Americans, who typically favor Democratic candidates. About one of five black people of voting age in Florida cannot vote. For Aalim, who is black, getting the right to vote again has been frustrating, but not more so than nding work and housing. Aalims income mostly comes from Social Security, and he rents his home from a fellow Muslim. He said the struggle to reintegrate back into society is so dicult for many that it leads them astray and eventually back into prison. It feels like the criminal justice system has its foot on your throat so you go back to prison. It doesnt matter if youve redeemed yourself and youre a positive person who wants to do something with your life, they want you back in. e system is set up for you to fail. Aalim works with men just coming out of prison, and though he would like to establish a 501c-3 nonprot to help in that eort, he said, I cant do that either. Aalim added that restoring prior felons voting rights would be a morale boost and could be a big help to open more doors for ex-convicts to transition into productive, law-abiding citizens. Were all human. We all make mistakes, he said. But to take away someones constitutional right to vote to punish them for something theyve already paid for is not only unfair, its unjust. TOHOContinued from Page 1 Another obstacle that remains for boaters and others navigating Osceola County waterways this month are sandbars. Sandbars, or shoals, are naturally occurring accumulations of dirt and sand that rise near enough to the surface of a body of water that it creates a danger to navigation. Several large shoals have formed in local waterways, including one at the mouth of Shingle Creek and Lake Toho and a massive one near the Southport lock of southern Lake Toho. Torrens said that although shoals occur naturally, increased development could make them form faster. When you have more development going on near the shores of a lake or creek, you have fewer trees and other vegetation holding on to lose dirt, sand and silt, she said. So a lot of those materials are now swept into the water, where they can come together to form large shoals. Torrens said unexpected flooding, like the kind following Hurricane Irma last year, can also impact how quickly shoals form. Sandbars can have a major impact on navigating waterways. e shoal near the Southport lock, for example, is so large that only airboats and other vehicles with shallow draft can currently maneuver around it, Torrens said. Removing these obstacles isnt cheap, though. e one near Shingle Creek and Lake Toho is estimated to cost $900,000 over a threeyear period to remove, and Torrens said her department is still waiting to hear back from the Army Corps of Engineers on how much it will cost to remove the sandbar near Southport lock. Because the process is costly, the county relies on state and federal funding to get the work done. We have to prioritize these projects, Torrens said. If boats can still navigate around them, they arent high on the priority list the way this one is in south Lake Toho. An Osceola County school teacher was arrested on Friday aer she admitted to having a sexual relationship with a student. Westside K-8 school teacher Miralys Agosto, 23, was arrested for two counts of sexual battery aer telling Osceola County Sheriffs Office detectives that she had two sexual encounters with the 16-year-old victim. On May 7, the victim, a seventh-grade ESE student at Westside K-8, said he was having a sexual relationship with his teacher, Agosto. e student reported two sexual encounters occurred in the teachers vehicle since April 26, according to a Sheris Oce report. On May 8, Agosto met with Sheriffs Office detectives and admitted to engaging in a sexual relationship with her student. She conrmed the two sexual encounters, the report stated. A warrant was obtained, and she was arrested on May 11. Agosto resigned her position at the school on May 7. Anyone with information regarding this case or any additional victims is asked to contact the Osceola County Sheris Oce at 407-348-2222 or Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS, where information leading to an arrest may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.Osceola school teacher arrested for sexual battery Agosto See Police Page 5.

Page 4 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, May 17, 2018 By Lee Hamilton Politicians and commentators these days like to point to an array of threats to our constitutional system. eres one, though, that doesnt get nearly as much attention as it should: our national debt. We may not yet be in imminent danger of scal collapse, but were moving into uncharted waters. We are among the most indebted nations in the world, and its only getting worse. anks to our new tax law, were staring ahead at routine federal budget decits north of $1 trillion each year compared to what now seems like a paltry $665 billion in 2017. As we look down the road to an aging population, rising entitlement costs, and skyrocketing interest payments, things promise to go from dismal to dire. In just ve years, the head of the Congressional Budget Oce warned a few weeks ago, well be spending more on interest payments on the debt than we do on our entire military. By 2028, well be closing in on $1 trillion in interest payments alone each year. Were running these decits at a time of full employment, when the economy is doing well. is is exactly the wrong time to be pressing on the accelerator, because when the downturn comes which, inevitably, it will we wont have room to maneuver. The more debt we accumulate, the more interest rates rise and the more our spending on debt serves to dampen economic growth. Small wonder that former Fed chair Janet Yellen told Congress last year that rising debt is the type of thing that should keep people awake at night. e problem is not quite that nobodys talking about the debt in Washington. ey are. But its not a productive discussion especially among the politicians who will need to roll up their sleeves and tackle it. ey give lip service to debt and decit reduction, but for the most part, each party is trying to blame the other. This is not just a waste of time, its counter-productive. Because a problem of this duration, severity and complexity is not going to be solved without a bipartisan approach. Tackling deficits and the debt always takes a back seat to other priorities: tax cuts and spending increases of all kinds and descriptions. Politicians fall prey to the temptation of saying that economic growth will save us whether its spurred by tax cuts or spending increases. Weve been fed this line for decades, and it hasnt worked out yet. To be sure, carefully targeted tax cuts and spending on investments in the economys underpinnings infrastructure, say, or human development can enhance economic growth. But weve had too much that was merely political fodder, and its done more harm than good. What do we do about all of this? e time to repair the roof, John F. Kennedy once said, is when the sun is shining. ats why its time right now, while the sun is shining on the economy, to repair our scal problems. We need to restrain the growth of spending, especially in entitlement programs. And we need to recognize that this most recent tax cut, with its scal stimulus and further explosion of debt, is exactly the wrong medicine. Like a lot of problems, the longer we wait to act, the larger and more disruptive the eventual solution will need to be. Were probably in the most scally irresponsible period in recent American history. Debt is a major threat to our preeminence in the world, since it constrains our ability to steer the economy and react forcefully to unexpected events. How we deal with it will be a real test of our constitutional system and our political system. Can Congress and the President act against the popular grain to cut spending and raise taxes in the public interest? Can we, as citizens, demand credible action by our political leaders even when it hits us in our pocketbooks? What we need to do is no secret: we have to spend less and tax more. is is very hard to do. But the system is not self-correcting. Unless Americans demand action, we will continue down our current road until, at some point, the pavement ends and the wheels come o.

Rodgers said both services are especially benecial to low-income and working class parents who may think they cant aord an early education program. He added that children who are developmentally behind are more likely to fail the state third-grade reading test and fall behind in school. Unfortunately, most of the inmates at the county jail have a fourth grade reading level, Rodgers said.

Thursday, May 17, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 7 By Ken Jackson Sports Editor The seven spring football games being played tonight and tomorrow bring an end to the three-week spring workout session and, formally, the 2017-18 athletic season. Most teams will keep their offensive wrinkles off the play sheets this week, opting to work on fundamentals and technique against somebody, for a change, wearing a dierent color. Summer weightlifting looms ahead of the August 17 Kicko Classics in just 10 weeks, but tonight and tomorrow bring traditional football practice to a close weather willing of course. While all eight teams that will take the eld in August Tohopekaliga joins the ranks this fall hope their seasons continue into the playos in November, only Osceola and Gateway can return. e Kowboys, who fell 17-13 to eventual Class 9A state champ Dr. Phillips on a touchdown with less than 10 seconds le the last team we saw them on the eld, will try for their 12th consecutive playo appearance. Its been a busy spring on acker Avenue for a couple of reasons: Coach Doug Nichols has been narrowing down the candidates that will take over for departed seniors like quarterback Braxton Jones, running backs Jakobe Thomas, Malcolm Davidson and DaNas Pinellas and receiver Fillimore Wynter, who will play on Saturdays this year. Of Osceolas 47 oensive touchdowns from 2017, 38 graduated. But theres still talent still running around the practice eld, especially on defense, like end Mario Kendricks, linebacker Kiyante Harrison and cornerback Malachi Wilson. Its been busy, college coaches have been in and out this spring, Nichols said. Its not like we have all new guys. Osceolas spring game against Bishop Moore at Kowboy Field tonight at 7 (rescheduled from Friday at 7:30 p.m.) will go a ways to see who takes over for Jones in August. Nichols said rising junior Davon Wells and sophomore Nolin Eaddy are the top candidates. Tayquan Pinellas and Dwayne McGee return to the Flexbone run attack theyve had success in, and could be joined by newcomers Tamaious Williams and Jamon Coleman. The offensive line returns four experienced blockers in Kalil Holly, Logan Owens, Sevian Martin and Deln Castillo. We feel good about those guys coming back, Nichols said. OHS graduated three o the defensive line, but also welcome back Kendricks, who has doubledigit Division I oers for the 2019 signing class, Boris Espinosa and Dylan Ruiz. Gateway can go to the playos for the third time in four years, and the climb there starts at Liberty tonight at 7. e Panthers oense return skill position starters quarterback Maurice Adams, running backs Phillip Bangura and Tyrell Tyler and receiver Najee Freeman. Coach Marlin Roberts challenge this spring and summer will be to find young talent to ll defensive roles le by college signees Dennis Briggs and Jeremiya Messam on the defensive line, Kurt McDonald at linebacker and Triston omas in the secondary. St. Cloud Coach Bryan Smart, who saw big hopes with a highpowered offense turn into a bummer of a 4-6 season, put his Bulldogs through an afternoon scrimmage of varsity-verses-JV Friday. ey return Seth Johnson, who made plays in 2017 and again Friday out of the backfield and from the slot. Running back Ronnie Ramos also showed flashes of what could be potential on Friday, as did receivers Colt Weismore and Garrett Preister, who are auditioning to replace Johnny Fritz, who signed with USF on Friday. Quarterbacks Koron Perrin and Garrett King worked as Smarts replacement for the graduating Colt Smith, who threw for 1,900 yards, as they will tonight at Lake Minneola. We are trying hard, hes big shoes to ll, Smart said Friday. Ronnie is going to surprise people. Were going to try a lot of things (tonight). Were looking forward to it, its been a long offseason since we ended in October, way earlier than we wanted to, so were excited to get back out there. Harmony, under new coach Don Simon, went 6-4 in 2017 and narrowly missed the playos but will look to light up scoreboards near and far. Quarterback Nate Herstitch, who threw for 2,361 yards, a new school record and the most in Osceola County since E.J. White went for 2,719 in 2008, and 30 touchdowns, a new county record, will return, along with receivers Josh Hall and Caleb Bass, who caught 13 of them. But Simon will have to replace four graduating linemen. Our O-line played very well and gave Nate time to sit back and look things over, he said. Weve got young guys in the system who will be able to pick this up. With spring practice starting back in April, Simon said he was awaiting many returning starters to come from spring sports back to the practice eld, so ursdays game at Cypress Creek will likely have a short play call sheet and be pretty vanilla, Simon said last week.

The Bulldogs play their spring game at Lake Minneola tonight at 7 p.m. By Ken Jackson Sports Editor e School District of Osceola Countys seventh annual athletics banquet Monday saluted its local athletes, coaches and administrators, while also thanking those retiring from service to those same people. In eect, it showed o the soul of the countys high school programs. e event was held, as usual, at the Silver Spurs Arena under the direction of School District Athletics Coordinator Ryan Adams. Its a privilege to have everyone here to the recognize all of you for all you do in the oseason and regular season representing your schools, he said. e guest speaker was Steve Landram, who came from Indiana in 1979 and coached football, track, basketball and whatever else was asked of him for at St. Cloud and Harmony high schools for parts of five decades. is banquet is a touch of class, the purpose of the evening, and the Silver Spurs do a tremendous job, he said. Landram spoke about athletes he coached who taught me more than I taught them and who exemplied being the best version of yourself. He noted Chris Bollinger who became a state discus champ in 2011 despite not throwing at all until well into high school. He had moderate success as a junior, so I never dreamed of what hed do as a senior, he said. By midseason he was leading the state, and advanced through the district and regionals while I was a nervous wreck about what could go wrong. Fast forward to the final round of throws of the state meet, when Bollinger held the lead. Im going crazy. On the last throw, Charles Tidwell of Niceville throws three feet farther than Chris, and it was time to coach, he said. Id like to tell you I gave Chris some highly technical observation, but that didnt happen. e crowd from Niceville started taunting Chris, an egregious breach of etiquette in track. I told him, Recover and focus. He winked at me and said, I got this, coach. I go back to the viewing area kicking myself going, Is that all you got, Landram? Chris cut loose a beautiful throw, way beyond Tidwell. Hes state champion. At that moment, Chris was the best version of himself. Months later, Landram said, Bollinger sat with his family at the hospital while Landram went through a lengthy operation. Landram also told a story about Kelly Smith, who 20 years ago played basketball at St. Cloud. A program kid, she gave it all for the Bulldogs, and would give it again for the U.S. military when, on her h tour of duty in the Middle East, lost her le arm when a suicide bomber disguised as an interpreter detonated a device. I saw her months ago at Crabby Bills and when I struggled for what to say, she said, Its all right coach, I was just doing my job, like I always do, he said. ey taught me another way of being the best version of yourself. e county recognized former NewsGazette Sports Editor Rick Pedone and retiring St. Cloud High School public address voice George Garber with Lifetime Achievement Awards. e two retired in the past year with a combined 58 years of service to local athletes. I had the privilege of attending one of St. Clouds basketball games and I heard him and had to nd out who it was, Adams said. Eight coaches, one from each of the countys large public high schools, were nominated for the M. Dean Cherry Coach of the Year Award, which this year was given to Celebration High competitive cheer coach Coach Christi Boone, who was See Spring Ball, Page 8.

Page 8 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, May 17, 2018 By Ken Jackson Sports Editor St. Cloud held a football scrimmage Friday during the final two periods of the day, and hundreds of students bought a cheap ticket to hang out in the sun and watch. Bulldogs Coach Bryan Smart said it was to give students a chance to see what their football team looked like aer three weeks of spring practice. Up in the press box, it was a slightly dierent story, which had nothing to do with the airconditioned room high atop Tom Gannarelli Field. e Maroon and Gold Game gave P.A. announcer George Garber one last chance to call Bulldog football, and it gave the school a chance to thank and honor Garber, who is retiring from teaching at the end of the school year later this month, for 13 years of faithful service to the St. Cloud athletic program as the Voice of the Bulldogs. During the scrimmage, the coaching sta paused the game, and the school made a special presentation the press box will be known going forward as the George Garber Press Box. Garber, who has called Bulldog football, basketball and soball games, along with other events when asked nicely by other coaches he was on the mike sending o groups at the district golf tournament last fall was selfdeprecating (as usual) about the honor when he realized what was going on in-game. I always thought when I le, maybe theyd name a bathroom aer me, he joked. The pleasure has been all mine. Celebration, 1-9 last year with a win over district foe Windermere, should improve this season in Coach Jay Sobkes second year with the Storm aer he moved over from Harmonys sta. e Storm will play on Friday, hosting Colonial at 7 p.m. at John Bushey Stadium. We are looking forward to testing ourselves Friday against a good opponent that will allow us to evaluate our guys are we head into the summer, Sobke said. The players have been working hard all winter long and they are eager to see how far they have come and what other development areas where they can grow. The looks will be new for Poinciana and Liberty, who debut new coaches. The Eagles filled Ken Knapczyks departure with Phillip Prior from the Tallahassee area, and former St. Cloud assistant Brandon Pennington is the new lead Charger aer Doug Gabriels one season there. The Eagles have about 50 kids out, Prior said, and theyve practiced with energy and physicality. e Eagles welcome Discovery High of Polk County on Friday at 7. We want to see that, see them playing fast and with eort, the coach said. Were going to use that tape a lot over the summer to see who knows their assignments. Weve installed a base oense and defense, but well really be able to rene all that aer Friday going into the summer. Pennington leads the Chargers, who were 4-6 last year, into tonights spring game against Gateway. Hell have use of quarterback Jaelen Ray, who threw for over 2,000 yards in his junior campaign. He said this week the coaching sta has installed a new oense and defense, and theyre more than interested in seeing how they look against a dierent opponent. We want to see what weve done with our installs. In practice when the oense calls a play, the defense already knows what it is, Pennington said. The Chargers will be auditioning running backs tonight and whether the run game will be by committee or have a feature back among seniors Donovan Johnson and Timon Naules, who will play defensive end as well, and sophomore Meechins Charles, who is more of a quick scat-back, Pennington said. Tohopekaliga, coached by Anthony Davis, has had a number of underclass workout dates this spring. SPRING BALLContinued from Page 7.

Page 10 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, May 17, 2018 Summer is a great time of year for people and their pets to enjoy the great outdoors and soak up some sun. Just as men and women exercise caution by applying sunscreen and staying hydrated on hot summer days, dog owners must take steps to protect their four-legged friends when bringing them outdoors. Heat stroke can pose a serious threat to dogs on hot days. Dog owners who routinely take their pets outdoors in summer must learn how to protect canines from heat stroke and how to recognize its symptoms. What is heat stroke? Dogs suffer from heat stroke when their body temperatures exceed 104 F and the built-in mechanisms they rely on to cool themselves including panting cease to function properly. But any temperature 103 F or above is considered abnormal. According to PetMD, heat stroke is a form of non-fever hyperthermia that can lead to multiple organ dysfunction. Is heat stroke immediately evident? Heat stroke can overwhelm dogs quickly, so dog owners should be especially diligent and watch their dogs closely when they are spending time outside on hot days. Dogs may first suffer from mild heat-related stress or moderate exhaustion before they begin experiencing the more severe symptoms of heat stroke, so dog owners should look for signs of stress or fatigue and bring their dogs inside immediately after noticing such symptoms. The consequences of heat stroke are severe, so dog owners should always err on the side of caution. What are the symptoms of heat stroke? Dogs that are overheating and potentially suffering from heat stroke may exhibit a number of symptoms. Such symptoms are typically easy to spot, but dog owners still must pay close attention to their four-legged friends during summertime walks or play sessions in the backyard. According to the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation, signs that a dog is overheating include: breathing contain blood. In addition, the eyes of dogs suffering from heat stroke may be glazed-over and such dogs may be unresponsive to commands, or their replies to commands may be slower than usual. Can heat stroke be prevented? Though dogs can suffer heat stroke even on mild days, dog owners can take precautionary measures. dogs, but on hot days dog owners can walk their dogs when temperatures tend to be at their most mild, such as in the early morning hours or evenings when the sun is setting or has already set. and exercising, and their body temperatures may rise considerably on hot summer days. To reduce dogs risk of heat stroke, limit play time on hot days. unbearable inside vehicles, so dog owners should not take their dogs along when running errands on hot days. Dog owners must be especially mindful of their dogs behavior on hot days. Protecting dogs from extreme heat can safeguard them from heat stroke, which can be fatal.How to recognize signs of heat stroke in dogsSummer heat facts and safety CONTACT BRIAN MCBRIDE EDITOR EMAIL BMCBRIDE@OSCEOLANEWSGAZETTE.COM For many people, summertime is synonymous with trips to the beach, water sports and recreation. Even though summer warmth is a welcome break from winter weather for many people, State Farm warns that heat is one of the leading causes of weatherrelated fatalities, resulting in hundreds of deaths each year in the United States alone. Ensuring summer recreation plans remain enjoyable means keeping an eye out for heat-related illnesses and other dangers. Hot cars can be traps. It is never safe to leave a pet, child, elderly person, or disabled individual locked in a car.

According to the American Cancer Society, melanoma skin cancer is less common than other types of skin cancer, though it is more likely to grow and spread. Melanoma begins in skin cells known as melanocytes. Melanocytes make melanin, a pigment that gives skin its tan or brown color and protects the skin from some of the harmful effects of the sun. The ACS notes that most melanoma cells still make melanin, and when that occurs the melanoma tumors are typically pink, tan or white. Melanomas can develop anywhere on the skin, but they are more likely to develop in certain areas depending on a persons gender. For men, melanomas are most likely to develop on the chest or trunk, while women who develop melanomas are most likely to get them on their legs.

Ray Rush is now ocially open. Guests of SeaWorlds water park have anxiously been watching the ride go through the building process, since construction began more than a year ago. We are excited to nally bring this attraction to the park, said Brian Andrelczyk, Aquatica Orlandos director of design and engineering, during a media preview of Ray Rush on Friday, May 11. Its nothing like Aquatica has. e family ra slide is an adventure suitable for the whole family, with a height requirement of only 42 inches and each ra accommodating two to four guests. e ride stands at nearly 60 feet tall, with three unique elements. First, you will take o as powerful water jets launch your ra from zero to fast in just seconds, propelling you into the rst of several enclosed tube sections. Youll then take a twisting turn rocking back and forth as you spin inside a giant translucent water sphere. Next, your raft will dive into the giant manta wings the signature element of Ray Rush as you swoop up and down this open-air half pipe on a dierent path each time. The combination of these three unique slide elements seamlessly blended into one attraction creates a ride experience that is both thrilling and family-friendly, its the perfect addition to our slide portfolio, said David Heaton, Aquatica Orlando vice president in a press release. The experience on Ray Rush will be unlike anything oered in Florida. Aquatica will be the first waterpark in the state to combine these three unique elements into one attraction. It was so fun, said water park fanatic Lexie Whitmire, speechless aer being one of Ray Rushs rst riders. It was so fast, and it was really just so fun. My favorite part about the new ride is how much speed you get, and the fact that the family raft can hold up to four people, Whitmire continued. [Ray Rush] is a great addition to the park. Its the only water slide of its kind in Central Florida. Ray Rush is the rst new attraction to come to the park since 2014 great timing, as the Orlando water park is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. e new slide is located on the north side of the park, next to Walkabout Waters. Its stair entrance is shared with the Walhalla Wave family ra slide, which was temporarily closed to accommodate the construction of Ray Rush. Both rides are now open to the public, as of Saturday, May 12. Access to the new ride is included in general water park admission. A selection of tickets are available including one-day tickets and annual passes to splash and play all year long.

By Jennifer DiDomenico A&E Editor Leggz Dance Academy is celebrating 30 years of business this year. The Kissimmee dance studio will celebrate the big anniversary in part with its annual recital that will be held at the end of this month. e recital will feature a special alumni dance, welcoming back 30 of Leggz Dance Academys past students. Plus, the Dads Dance that began in 1994 with its Men in Tights performance will return this year with a new, surprise theme. Its been a lot of fun to plan and choreograph, said Leggz Dance Academy owner and instructor Lisa Drawneek. Were really looking forward to the event. Drawneek opened the studio after teaching classes at the old Poinciana Community Center, though she said teaching classes and opening her own studio was never the plan. She opened the studios doors in 1988 with just 50 students. Only classes in ballet, tap and jazz were oered at that time. Our studio has grown year after year, said Drawneek. When we rst started out, I would bring my record player in for music. Our classes were held on the carpet and we used chairs as ballet bars. We would hold our tap classes in the kitchen, which was the only spot in the center with tile oors. Leggz Dance Academy has grown tremendously and now teaches more than 500 students in a 4,500-square-foot, airconditioned facility. e studio oers classes in ballet (ages 6 to adult), pointe (ages 11 to adult), tap (ages 6 to adult), jazz (ages 6 to adult), modern (ages 9 to adult), tumbling, hip hop, lyrical (based on level, not age), salsa (ages 7 to adult) and Mexican folklorical dance (ages 9 to adult). Little Stars (ages 1836 months), Creative Dance (ages 3-5) and Hippity Hop (ages 4-6) classes are available for children.Leggz Dance Academy believes the only competition a child should have is within themselves, and therefore doesnt offer competitive dance teams. Former students have grown to dance professionally all over the world, for companies like Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disney, SeaWorld, Orlando Magic and more. e studio also teaches many second-generation students, of parents who were once members of the studio themselves. Its very exciting for me to see our secondgeneration students, said Drawneek. Additionally, Leggz Dance Academy is the only dance school in Central Florida to be registered with Englands Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) the leading ballet organization, with 13,000 dancers in 79 countries. Leggz follows RADs dress code and syllabus, and a RAD member ies in annually in the month of March to test the ballet students. I became certified in RAD in 1993, said Drawneek, who is one of only six certified RAD teachers in the state of Florida. The program is wonderful, and it has a fabulous syllabus. Everyone is welcome to attend the recital, that will be held on Sunday, May 27, at 5 p.m. at the Bob Carr eater in Orlando. Tickets can be purchased online through the Bob Carr Theater at https://tickets. drphillipscenter.org/syos/ performance/6914.

And Cremation Services 062217.TNGIn time of Loss and Grieving, Who Do You Look towww.conradandthompson.com Cognitive decline is a condition that is often associated with aging, but even middle-aged people can experience memory loss or cognition issues. The Alzheimers Association says that more than ve million Americans are living with Alzheimers disease and other dementias. By 2050, that number could rise to as high as 16 million people. More than 747,000 Canadians are living with Alzheimers or another dementia, says the Canadian Alzheimers Association. Although there is no definitive way to prevent dementia, living a long, vibrant life may be possible by encouraging some healthy habits for the brain. It is never too late or too early to begin health and lifestyle changes. Exercise Becoming more active can improve brain volume, reduce risk for dementia and improve thinking and memory skills. e journal Neurology found that older people who vigorously exercise performed better on cognitive tests than others of the same age, placing them at the equivalent of 10 years younger. Increased blood ow that occurs with physical activity may help generate new neurons in the hippocampus, an area of the brain involved with learning and memory. The Harvard Medical School says aerobic exercise may help improve brain tissue by improving blood flow and reducing the chances of injury to the brain from cholesterol buildup in blood vessels. Quit smoking The Alzheimers Association indicates that evidence shows smoking increases the risk of cognitive decline. Smoking can impair blood ow to the brain and cause small strokes that may damage blood vessels. Eat healthy foods Foods that are good for the heart and blood vessels also are good for the brain. ese include fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, sh-based proteins, unsaturated fats, and foods containing omega-3 fatty acids. Neurologists state that, while research on diet and cognitive function is limited, diets, such as Mediterranean and Mediterranean-DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension), may contribute to a lower risk of cognitive issues. Consume caffeine Caeine may help boost memory performance and brain health. A Journal of Nutrition study found people ages 70 and older who consumed more caeine scored better on tests of mental function than those who consumed less caeine. Caeine may help improve attention span, cognitive function and feelings of well-being. Information from Psychology Today also indicates caffeine may help in the storage of dopamine, which can reduce feelings of depression and anxiety. In addition, compounds in cocoa and coee beans may improve vascular health and help repair cellular damage due to high antioxidant levels. Work the brain Engaging in mentally stimulating activities can create new brain connections and more backup circuits, states Dr. Joel Salinas, a neurologist at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital. Working the brain through puzzles, reading and participating in social situations can stimulate the release of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a molecule essential for repairing brain cells and creating connections between them. A good way to combine these lifestyle factors is to take an exercise class with friends, mixing the social, stimulation and exercise recommendations together. Cognitive decline can come with aging, but through healthy habits, people can reduce their risk of memory loss and dementia.Brain-healthy habits to embrace PHOTO/METROSeniors can include healthy lifestyle habits, such as exercise and balanced eating, to reduce the risk of dementia and other neurological issues.Highest ranking life expectancy rankings Living a long, healthy life has been made possible thanks in part to modern medicine. But the factors behind longevity are more complex than just access to quality healthcare. Genetics, lifestyle and even where a person lives can all impact the length of a persons life. Longevity is oen studied so scientists can uncover the secrets to those who seem to have unlocked the fountain of youth. Certain areas of the world boast the longest life spans, and scientists study these areas for clues. Overall, the following countries ranked high in average life expectancy. People interested in living longer may want to adopt some of their citizens lifestyle habits to live long lives. Monaco: e second smallest country in the world boasts quite a high life expectancy, with people living an average of 89.7 years. Nearby France has the lowest obesity rates in the world, possibly helping people to live long, healthy lives. Hong Kong: This country off the coast of China has a high longevity rate with people living an average of 84 years. Steamed food, engaging in Tai Chi and drinking tea may contribute to long life. Japan: In this Asian nation, people live 83.6 years on average. Again, a healthy diet rich in seafood and active lifestyles may be the secret. Spain: The Spanish dine on the famed Mediterranean Diet, which is rich in fresh vegetables, sh and healthy fats. Spaniards live on average 83.1 years. Switzerland and Italy: Low poverty levels make a good diet more readily available to much of the Swiss and Italian populations. Diverse topography that can push physical exertion also may help those in Switzerland and Italy live to 82.8 and 82.7 years, respectively. The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency also tracks life expectancy rates for nations around the world. The United States does not crack the top 20. e CIA puts America at number 50 on its list, with people living an average of 78.4 years. e World Bank shows that Canadians fare better than Americans, with an average life span of 82.1 years. 021018.SNG

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

Tribune Triple EWednesday, May 16, 2018 EEE-1 www.citizentribune.comTribune Expanded Electronic Edition APThis April 2017 photo shows a Reuben pizza in New York. Healthy and HappyBY SARA MOULTON Associated PressWith the end of the school year looming, the proud par ents of any number of soonto-be-minted graduates are wondering how to pull off a celebratory party without spending a ton of time or money. Reuben Pizza is the answer. It's quick, easy to make, inexpensive and completely scrumptious. Even better, it's not a typi cal pizza. Essentially it's a Reuben sandwich that swaps out rye bread for pizza dough. All the other elements of the great deli favorite are present and accounted for: corned beef, Swiss cheese (in this case gruyere), sauerkraut and Russian dressing. "Sounds great," you say, "but making pizza dough at home is way too complicated for me." Not so. You'll spend ve minutes assembling the ingredients, three minutes mixing the dough in a food processor, an hour waiting and 45 minutes hands off, while the dough rises. "Wait a minute," you ob ject. "What about rolling out the dough? I tried it once and no matter which way I rolled it, the thing shrank back in my direction." That can be a problem, but here's a solution: Instead of rolling out the dough on a counter sprinkled with our, brush the counter with a little bit of oil. The oil glues down the dough, allowing you to roll it out quickly and efciently, with very little shrinkage. This recipe guides you through the making of four medium-sized pizzas rather than two large ones. The smaller ones are easier and quicker to make than the bigger ones. And don't worry about having to bake them in shifts; the rst two pies will stay warm while the second two are baking. As a fan of crispy crusts, I've been very particular about the amount of topping meant for these pizzas. I know it's tempting to pile on the toppings, but overdo ing makes the nished product soggy. Still, don't be shy about pouring on a generous drizzle of the dressing as a nishing touch. It's key to making a Reuben a Reuben.REUBEN PIZZAStart to nish: 2 hours (1 hour if using store-bought dough) Servings: 6 to 8 Speedy Pizza Dough (see below) or 14 ounces prepared pizza dough Olive oil for rolling out the dough 2/3 cup mayonnaise 2 tablespoons ketchup 1 tablespoon fresh lime or lemon juice 2 teaspoons hot sauce Kosher salt 3 ounces coarsely grated Gruyere cheese (about cup) 1 cup sauerkraut, rinsed in a strainer and pressed to re move excess moisture 8 ounces thinly sliced corned beef, cut crosswise into -inch thick strips cup thinly sliced dill pickle Prepare the Basic Pizza Dough. While it's rising, place a rack in the bottom third of the oven; preheat the oven to 500 F. Line two bak ing sheets with parchment. In a bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, ketchup, lime juice, hot sauce and salt to taste; set aside. Divide the dough into 4 balls; working with 2 balls, roll out each ball on a lightly oiled surface into a round 8-inches wide and 1/8-inch thick. Transfer the rounds to one of the baking sheets. Sprinkle one-fourth of the cheese evenly onto each round, spreading it to -inch of the edge and top with of the sauerkraut, followed by of the corned beef and pickle slices. Bake the pizzas on the bottom rack of the oven for 7 to 8 minutes until the crust is golden and crisp on the bottom. While the rst two pizzas are baking, roll out and top the second two pizzas. Remove the rst two from the oven and cover loosely to keep the pizzas warm un til the second two are baked. Drizzle the slices with some of the mayonnaise dressing.Speedy Pizza Dough2 to 2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose our for the dough One 1/4-ounce envelope quick-rising yeast 1 teaspoon sugar 1 teaspoon table salt 3/4 cup very warm water (120 degrees F to 130 de grees F) 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil plus extra for rolling out the dough In the bowl of a food processor tted with the chopping blade, pulse 1 3/4 cups our, the yeast, sugar and salt until the mixture is combined. Add the water and 1 tablespoon of the oil. Process the mixture until it forms a ball, adding more our, as needed, to make a soft, slightly sticky dough. Shape the dough into a ball and place it in an oiled medium bowl. Turn the dough to make sure all sides are very lightly coated with oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set it aside in a warm place until the dough is double in size, 40 to 45 minutes.

For a pan packed with well-browned, herb-ecked chicken and vegetables that roasted at the same rate, we arranged our ingredients on a sheet pan with their cook ing times in mind. After tossing the root vegetables with fresh thyme and rose mary, we arranged halved Brussels sprouts in the cen ter of the pan and the denser items_chunky pieces of red potatoes and carrots and halved shallots_around the edges. Likewise, to ensure that the chicken breasts stayed moist while the meatier thighs and drumsticks cooked through, we placed the breasts in the center of the pan atop the sprouts and the thighs and drumsticks around the perimeter where they would take on (and ben et from) more direct contact with the oven's intense heat. Brushing the parts with herb butter promised added richness and browning. Roasted together in a hot oven, the chicken parts and vegetables emerged browned and perfectly cooked in about 35 minutes. Use Brus sels sprouts no bigger than golf balls, as larger ones are often tough and woody. If using kosher chicken, do not brine. If brining the chicken, do not season with salt.ONE-PAN ROASTED CHICKEN WITH ROOT VEGETABLESServings: 4 Start to nish: 1 hour and 15 minutes 12 ounces Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved 12 ounces red potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 1-inch pieces 8 ounces shallots, peeled and halved 4 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces, thick ends halved lengthwise 6 garlic cloves, peeled 4 teaspoons minced fresh thyme 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary 1 teaspoon sugar Salt and pepper 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 3 1/2 pounds bone-in chicken pieces (2 split breasts cut in half, 2 drum sticks, and 2 thighs), trimmed Adjust oven rack to up per-middle position and heat oven to 475 F.

AroundOsceola.com By Americas Test KitchenThough traditional paella centers on a variety of meat and seafood, we wanted to develop a vegetable-focused version that highlighted the array of hearty vegetables common in Spanish cuisine: artichokes, bell peppers, fen nel, and peas. We gave the artichokes and peppers extra avor by roast ing and then tossing them with a bright, lemony sauce. We sauteed the fennel with chopped onion to give it a rich caramelized avor that gave the dish aromatic back bone. Chopped kalamata ol ives brought in a distinct pop of briny, contrasting avor. To infuse the rice with complex, authentic avor, we bloomed the paprika with the garlic and browned diced tomatoes to give them savory depth. We coated the rice with this potent mixture be fore adding broth, wine, and saffron and simmering the rice until tender. Cooking on the stovetop alone yielded unevenly cooked rice, so we trans ferred it to a 350 F oven where the grains cooked to perfection in the steady, even heat. You will need at least a 6-quart Dutch oven for this recipe. While we prefer the avor and texture of jarred whole baby artichokes, you can substitute 18 ounces frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and patted dry, for the jarred kind. Bomba rice is the most traditional rice for this dish, but you can use any variety of Valencia rice. If you can not nd Valencia rice, you can substitute Arborio rice. Socarrat, a layer of crusty browned rice that forms on the bottom of the pan, is a traditional part of paella. In this version, socarrat does not develop because most of the cooking is done in the oven; if desired, there are directions on how to make a socarrat before serving.VEGETABLE PAELLAServings: 6 Start to nish: 2 hours 3 cups jarred whole baby artichokes packed in water, quartered, rinsed, and patted dry 2 red bell peppers, stemmed, seeded, and chopped coarse 1/2 cup pitted kalamata ol ives, chopped 9 garlic cloves, peeled (3 whole, 6 minced) 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Salt and pepper 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 onion, chopped ne 1 fennel bulb, stalks dis carded, bulb halved, cored, and sliced thin 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained, minced, and drained again 2 cups Bomba rice 3 cups vegetable broth 1/3 cup dry white wine 1/2 teaspoon saffron threads, crumbled 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position, place rimmed baking sheet on rack, and heat oven to 450 F. Toss artichokes and peppers with olives, whole garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons oil, 1/2 tea spoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in bowl. Spread veg etables in hot sheet and roast until artichokes are browned around edges and peppers are browned, 20 to 25 minutes; let cool slightly. Mince roasted garlic. In large bowl, whisk 2 tablespoons oil, 2 tablespoons parsley, lemon juice, and minced roasted garlic togeth er. Add roasted vegetables and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Heat remain ing 2 tablespoons oil in Dutch oven over medium heat until shimmering. Add onion and fennel and cook until softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in remaining minced garlic and paprika and cook until fragrant, about 30 sec onds. Stir in tomatoes and cook until mixture begins to darken and thicken slightly, about 3 minutes. Stir in rice and cook until grains are well coated with tomato mixture, about 2 minutes. Stir in broth, wine, saffron, and 1 teaspoon salt. Increase heat to medi um-high and bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Cover, transfer pot to oven, and bake until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, 25 to 35 min utes. For optional socarrat, transfer pot to stovetop and remove lid. Cook over me dium-high heat for about 5 minutes, rotating pot as need ed, until bottom layer of rice is well browned and crisp. Sprinkle roasted vegetables and peas over rice, cover, and let paella sit for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon parsley and serve.

CITIZEN TRIBUNE FoodEEE-2 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 By America's Test KitchenA tangy, tomatoey, molasseslaced sauce is the indisputable star of traditional American barbecued chicken. The brick-hued sauce should be mopped on as the chicken cooks, resulting in a beautifully browned (not charred) exterior surrounding moist, evenly cooked meat. Our Classic Barbecue Sauce gave simple chicken parts all the in tense, multidimensional avor we craved, but the real secret to this recipe was the method: A two-lev el grill re allowed us to cook the chicken most of the way through on the cooler side of the grill, rendering the fat without causing are-ups, and then we moved the chicken to the hotter side to get a lacquered layer of sauce. Applying the sauce in coats and turning the chicken as it cooked encouraged the sauce to thicken and caramelize, perfectly glazing the chicken. Don't try to grill more than 10 pieces of chicken at a time; you won't be able to line them up. You can use a mix of chicken breasts, thighs, and drumsticks, making sure they add up to about 10 pieces.CLASSIC BARBECUED CHICKENServings: 4 to 6 Start to nish: 1 hour and 45 minutes (plus 30 minutes to pre pare barbecue sauce) 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 3 1/2 pounds bone-in chick en pieces (split breasts cut in half, drumsticks, and/or thighs), trimmed 1 (13 by 9-inch) disposable alu minum roasting pan (if using char coal) 1 recipe Classic Barbecue SauceClassic Barbecue SauceMakes about 2 cups This sauce can be used on just about anything.

I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) Gina Haspel, President Donald Trump's nominee to head the CIA, won the backing of the Senate intelligence committee on Wednesday, paving the way for her expected conrma tion to lead the spy agency. The panel voted 10-5 to advise the full Senate to conrm Haspel, whose nomination has renewed debate over the harsh in terrogation program the CIA conducted on terror suspects after 9/11. Has pel, who supervised a CIA detention site in Thailand in 2002, has told Congress that the agency shouldn't have used those harsh tac tics and has vowed not to restart them. The committee released the result of the vote, conducted in closed session, without giving further de tails. However, all eight Republicans and two of the seven Democrats on the panel earlier expressed support for Haspel. The remaining ve Democrats had announced their oppo sition. The conrmation vote by the full Senate could occur before the end of the week. "Gina Haspel is the most qualied person the president could choose to lead the CIA and the most pre pared nominee in the 70 year history of the agen cy," said Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C. "She has acted morally, ethically, and legally, over a distinguished 30-year career and is the right person to lead the agency into an uncer tain and challenging fu ture." She also had the support of the committee's topranking Democrat, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia. "As director of the CIA, Gina Haspel will be the rst operations ofcer in more than ve decades to lead the agency," Warner said. "Most importantly, I be lieve she is someone who can and will stand up to the president if ordered to do something illegal or im moral like a return to torture," he said. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., who has staunchly opposed Haspel, called her nomination one of the most "selfserving abuses of power in recent history" because Haspel, as acting CIA di rector, was in a decisionmaking role in determining what parts of her undercov er career were declassied. He likened that to a "stacking of the deck" and said he would continue to seek the declassication of details about her past activities at the agency. Warner said he would continue to seek the declas sication of a Justice De partment report about the destruction of more than 90 videotapes showing the harsh interrogation of one terror suspect. No charges were led as a result of that report. Haspel drafted a cable that ordered the tapes destroyed, but the cable was sent by her boss, Jose Rodriguez, who has repeatedly taken responsibility for the order. The interrogation program became one of the darkest chapters of the CIA's history and tainted America's image worldwide after the Sept. 11 at tacks. Haspel has not dis closed any details of what she did in connection with the program or say whether she thought it had been im moral. But during her conrmation hearing last week, she said she doesn't believe torture works as an inter rogation technique and that her "strong moral compass" would prevent her from carrying out any presiden tial order she found objec tionable. "With the benet of hindsight and my experience as a senior agency leader, the enhanced interrogation program is not one the CIA should have undertaken," according to Haspel's writ ten answers to some 60 additional questions from lawmakers. Bolstering the comments she made during her hear ing, Haspel wrote, "I do not support use of enhanced in terrogation techniques for any purpose." Attention now turns to the vote by the full Senate, which has yet to be sched uled. Haspel has already won the backing of several Democrats. They include Mark Warner of Virginia, Joe Manchin of West Vir ginia, Joe Donnelley of In diana, Bill Nelson of Flor ida and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. The only Senate Republicans who are not expected to vote for her are Kentucky's Rand Paul and Arizona's John McCain, who is battling cancer and is not expected to be present for the ballot. Haspel's opponents, however, continue to weigh into the debate. "Ms. Haspel is cynically trying to offer mere words in an attempt to win votes to support her conrma tion," said Gen. Charles Krulak, former comman dant of the Marine Corps. "The denition of moral courage is doing the right thing at the right time for the right reasons when no one's looking.

Daphne Eviatar with Amnesty International on Tuesday called Haspel's nomination an "affront to human rights." "This country has not held any ofcials account able for the use of torture, so it's even more outra geous that the government is considering someone to the chief intelligence position in spite of her alleged participation in that clearly illegal and immoral activ ity," she said.

CIA nominee wins Senate panel backing, confirmation expectedTrump backs 2 successful US Senate nominees in primariesPresident Donald Trump backed two successful U.S. Senate nominees in Penn sylvania and Nebraska, which were among four states holding primaries Tuesday. The primaries began to settle swing state Pennsyl vania's chaotic congressio nal landscape after a court ght ended with redrawn districts just three months ago. Amid the redistricting, Republican Rick Saccone recorded his second loss in two months in two U.S. House districts. Among the more un usual results of Tuesday's primaries was the loss by Pennsylvania's Democratic lieutenant governor, Mike Stack, who was ousted by mayor John Fetterman. Oregon and Idaho also held primary elections. Here's a look at some of the other interesting races: Two of the president's favored candidates, Lou Bar letta in Pennsylvania and Deb Fischer in Nebraska, won their U.S. Senate primaries. Trump congratulated his picks in a pair of tweets Wednesday morning. Barletta, currently a congressman, was heavily favored over state Rep. Jim Christiana to become the Republican challenger for Democratic Sen. Bob Casey, who is seeking a third term in November. Barletta was a Trump supporter before the 2016 presidential nomination was settled. Trump asked Barletta to run for Senate, and the president is expected to visit Pennsylva nia to campaign for him. The president also recorded telephone calls last week end backing Barletta "fully, strongly and proudly." Fischer, the incumbent, defeated four GOP chal lengers and will be the strong favorite to win reelection in deep-red Ne braska. Her Democratic opponent is Lincoln City Councilwoman Jane Ray bould. Last week, Trump urged GOP Senate primary voters to support Rep. Jim Renacci in the Ohio Senate and op pose former coal company executive Don Blankenship in West Virginia. Renacci won and Blankenship lost. Pennsylvania could send at least three women Con gress next year, breaking the all-male hold on the state's 18-member U.S. House delegation. Mary Gay Scanlon won a 10-way Democratic pri mary and Madeleine Dean won a three-way Democrat ic primary on Tuesday night for two suburban Philadel phia seats that are likely to ip to Democrats following a court-ordered redrawing of the state's congressional district boundaries. Meanwhile, Chrissy Houlahan is the uncontested Democratic nominee for an other suburban Philadelphia seat where she's heavily fa vored in November. Women won contested Democratic primaries in three other seats in Pennsyl vania, although two of those seats are in solidly Repub lican districts and another is considered a toss-up in November. Mike Stack became the rst holder of the Pennsyl vania lieutenant governor's ofce to lose in a primary election. John Fetterman, the Braddock mayor, won the ve-way Democratic Party primary race for lieutenant governor Tuesday, meaning he will run on a ticket with Gov. Tom Wolf in the fall. Pennsylvania rst started allowing lieutenant gover nors to serve a second term in the 1970s. Fetterman had made a failed bid in 2016 for the U.S. Senate. Stack, a former Philadel phia state senator, has had a chilly relationship with Wolf in their rst term to gether. Wolf last year ordered an investigation into the treat ment of state employees by Stack and his wife and stripped Stack of state police protection. Pennsylvania state Rep. Rick Saccone, who lost a special election two months ago to Democrat Conor Lamb for a congressional seat, has now lost a twoway Republican primary for a different U.S. House seat. Saccone lost Tuesday's 14th Congressional District primary election to state Sen. Guy Reschenthaler for the open seat in a heavily Republican, newly drawn district. In March, Lamb nar rowly beat Saccone in a district that President Don ald Trump won in 2016 by about 20 percentage points. The president campaigned in the district twice and sent several tweets on Saccone's behalf. The White House later contended that it was Lamb who had had em braced the president's policies and vision. Social worker and po litical newcomer Kara Eastman has won the Dem ocratic nomination for Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District. Eastman defeated former Rep. Brad Ashford in Tuesday's primary election with a campaign that cast her as a champion of liberal ide als, including supporting a single-payer health care system. Eastman contrasted her self against Ashford, a centrist and former Republican who focused on his legisla tive experience and willing ness to work with conservatives. She will now face Rep. Don Bacon, a rst-term Republican who defeated Ash ford in the 2016 election. Ashford had been the rst Democrat in two de cades to win the district, which encompasses much of the Omaha metro area. Although Omaha's strong Democratic core is bal anced out by more conser vative suburbs, the district gives Democrats a ghting chance of capturing a congressional seat in a state that is otherwise overwhelmingly Republican. State Rep. Knute Buehler has emerged from a crowded primary to capture the Republican nomination for Oregon governor. Buehler, who ran for secretary of state in 2012, was the most centrist of the Re publican front-runners. He was among 10 GOP candi dates in the primary. However, Democratic Gov. Kate Brown remains the favorite to win in No vember. Brown became governor in 2015 upon the resignation of Gov. John Kitzhaber following an eth ics scandal, and she won a special election in 2016. Oregon is among eight states where Democrats control the governorship and both houses of the state legislature. Voters who identify as Democrats also outnumber their Republican counterparts by more than 9 percentage points. When former state Rep. Paulette Jordan, 38, won her primary, she became the rst woman to be the Dem ocratic gubernatorial nomi nee in Idaho. If she wins the general election, Jor dan, a member of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe, would not only be the rst woman to serve as Idaho governor but also the rst Native Ameri can woman to serve in that position in any state. But she faces a difcult race: Idaho hasn't elected a Democratic governor since 1990, and the Republican Party now controls a supermajority on all federal, state and legislative seats. Lt. Gov. Brad Little, 64, a rancher who has spent the past 16 years in elected ofce, secured the GOP nomination. He's the pick of Re publican Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter, who decided not to seek a fourth term.

Page E4, THE CIVIL WAR COURIER THE CIVIL WAR COURIER the reenactment hobbyist Only $3.00 Osceola News-Gazette.108 Church Street, Kissimmee Fl 34771407-846-7600 SEATTLE (AP) Bil lionaire philanthropist Bill Gates saw an opportunity with a new federal educa tion law that has widespread repercussions for American classrooms. His non-prot, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has given about $44 million to outside groups over the past two years to help shape new state education plans required under the 2015 law, according to an Associated Press analysis of its grants. The spending paid for research aligned with Gates interests, led to friendly media coverage and even had a hand in writing one state's new education system frame work. The grants illustrate how strategic and immersive the Microsoft founder can be in pursuit of his education re form agenda, quietly wielding national inuence over how schools operate. Gates' carefully curated and inter secting web of inuence is often invisible but allows his foundation to drive the conversation in support of its vision on how to reshape America's struggling schools systems. Critics call it meddling by a foundation with vast wealth and resources. The Gates Foundation says it's simply helping states navigate a "tectonic" shift in responsibility for education from the federal government to more local control. "For 50 states with varying sets of capacities and capa bilities and readiness, it was both an opportunity and also a concern that states and part ners in those states needed support," said Allan Golston, president of the Gates Foun dation's U.S. work. The Gates Foundation spent about $44 million fo cused on the 2015 federal ed ucation law called the Every Student Succeeds Act. The law gives states exibility to create their own education system framework dening what a "good school" is and in turn states get federal dollars for complying with their own rules. The law requires academic standards, which means that the backbone for most state education systems is the Common Core a sym bol for many critics during the Obama years of federal overreach in schools. Gates was inuential in supporting the Common Core academic standards, and now is doing the same as states sort out the best ways to implement their education policies under the 2015 law. And that is how the world's largest philanthropy works: funding everything from policy work on the ground to broader research and analy sis, as well as national ad vocacy groups, community leaders and media coverage both mainstream and niche. In Tennessee, a Gatesfunded advocacy group had a hand in the state's new educa tion plan, with its leader sit ting on an important advising committee. A media outlet given money by Gates to cover the new law then pub lished a story about research funded by Gates. And many Gates-funded groups have become the de facto experts who lead the conversation in local communities, across states and featured nationally. Gates also dedicated mil lions of dollars to protect Common Core as the new law unfolded. Patrick McGuinn, an education policy expert and professor at Drew University, said the Every Stu dent Succeeds Act removed the political pressure from the standards despite how politically toxic Common Core has become. The policy idea suggests every child can and should be taught the same things as their peers. "ESSA politically was probably the best thing that could happen to Common Core," McGuinn said. Some Common Core and Gates critics said they weren't aware of the founda tion's interest in the education law or the millions of dollars it has continued to pour into supporting the stan dards. "They're doing it in a quiet way because they don't want the general public to know they're still meddling in education policy," said Carol Burris of the Network for Public Education. And long before thousands of fed-up teachers walked out on the job in four un precedented statewide strikes this year over pay and school conditions, education union ofcials had rung the alarm bell about Gates' inuence. "They thought they could socially engineer all of pub lic education through a topdown model and that they could reduce education to an algorithm, but kids are not widgets and teachers are not widgets," said Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers. The national teach ers union in 2014 famously broke ties with Gates over Common Core after initially supporting the standards. To be sure, the Seattlebased foundation's education spending is just a small fraction of its philanthropy, which is primarily focused on global health and devel opment. Still, in terms of dollars, it is the top funder of schools reform in the United States. The foundation since 2001 has contributed more than $6 billion toward reshaping American schools, including nearly $300 mil lion on Common Core by some estimates. The groups receiving the recent ESSA-related grants said the money from Gates and other like-minded phi lanthropies such as the Carnegie Corporation of New York and William and Flora Hewlett foundations was used to develop expertise in the education law so that they could be a resource to states. Most of those same groups have been funded by Gates in other initiatives, including some of the most prominent Washington-based policy players who developed Com mon Core in 2009. Achieve, Inc., collaborated with local leaders to compile information about new state education plans. Mike Co hen, Achieve's president who helped write Common Core, also had more notable roles in states such as Tennessee and New York. "Our focus has always been about standards, about helping states set the right expectations for students in terms of what they need to know so that they're pre pared for success after high school," said Cohen, who was a member of a local stakeholders group in Ten nessee focused on standards and assessments. He also gave a presentation to New York's Board of Regents urging the state to adopt high standards as part of its new education plan. Tennessee said Cohen had a seat at the table because it sought national experts in addition to state ofcials, community advocacy groups and traditional and charter schools. Eve Carney, who led the plan's development for the Tennessee Department of Education, said it was im possible to quantify the spe cic impact of each of the 67 stakeholders across six work ing groups. "It's important to have di versity in voice and different points of view, however, the inuence of one over the oth er is not there," Carney said. Another example of Gates' reach can be found in The 74 Media, Inc., which last year published an exclusive story featuring the analysis of state plans done by the Collaborative for Student Success and quoting an expert voice from the Council of Chief State School Ofcers. Gates gave all three groups money to work on Every Student Suc ceeds Act. The 74 said Gates doesn't inuence the direction of their coverage and that the money funded its broader op eration. After the AP's inqui ry, the education news outlet acknowledged an oversight by updating the nearly yearold story to add a Gates fund ing disclosure. Golston said it's necessary to take a multidimensional approach to play at the system-wide level. "We're thoughtful about the programmatic dimensions and advocacy and communications dimensions. That's just the nature of being in education and we've learned over time that you have to be thoughtful," Golston said.

(AP) Thousands of teachers wearing red gathered Wednesday in North Caro lina's capital ahead of a march and rally to demand better pay and more resources for public schools in the conservative, tax-cutting state. With messages such as "Respect Public Education" on their shirts and signs, as many as 15,000 teachers from around the state were expected to participate in the march starting at 10:30 a.m. Police were already posted along the route through downtown to the General Assembly, where predominantly Republican lawmakers were beginning their annual session the same day. Previous strikes, walk outs and protests in West Virginia, Arizona, Ken tucky, Colorado and Okla homa have led legislators in each state to improve pay, benets or overall school funding. Tracy Brumble, a teacher at Milbrook Magnet Elementary School in Raleigh, was with about a dozen fellow teachers at the school waiting for a bus to carry them to the march's starting point. They were all wear ing red t-shirts, matching the color of the #RedForEd theme of the day. "We're here to tell our legislators and our representatives that we need more funds to keep our buildings in good shape, to get more textbooks, more resources for our students, to just have a better environment for public education," she said. The state's main teacher advocacy group, the North Carolina Association of Educators, demands that legislators increase per-pu pil spending to the national average in four years, in crease school construction for a growing state, and ap prove a multiyear pay raise for teachers and school sup port staff that would raise incomes to the national av erage. More than three dozen school districts that togeth er educate more than twothirds of the state's 1.5 mil lion public school students have decided to close class rooms to allow for the show of strength by the teachers and their advocacy group. "The fact that a million kids are not going to be in school (Wednesday) be cause a political organiza tion wants to have folks come there to communicate with us or send a message" should be the day's focus, said state Senate leader Phil Berger, a Republican. The teachers' group favors a proposal by Demo cratic Gov. Roy Cooper to raise salaries by stopping planned tax cuts on corpo rations and high-income households. Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore made clear they have no plans to funnel more money to classrooms by postponing January's planned tax cuts, including one for what is already one of the country's lowest cor porate income taxes. "We have no intention of raising taxes," Berger said. But with the Great Recession in the past and the state's nancial stability restored, teachers say it's time to catch up on de ferred school spending. Teachers are photocopying assignments off the inter net or from old workbooks because textbooks haven't been replenished in years, North Carolina Association of Educators President Mark Jewell said.

Thursday, May 17, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E5 SEOUL, South Korea (AP) North Korea on Wednesday threatened to scrap a historic sum mit next month between its leader, Kim Jong Un, and U.S. President Donald Trump, saying it has no interest in a "one-sided" affair meant to pressure the North to abandon its nuclear weapons. The warning by North Korea's rst vice foreign minister came hours after the country abruptly can celed a high-level meet ing with South Korea to protest U.S.-South Korean military exercises that the North has long claimed are an invasion rehearsal. The surprise moves appear to cool what had been an unusual urry of out reach from a country that last year conducted a provocative series of weapons tests that had many fear ing the region was on the edge of war. Analysts said it's unlikely that North Korea intends to scuttle all diplomacy. More likely, they said, is that it wants to gain leverage ahead of the talks between Kim and Trump, scheduled for June 12 in Singapore. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the Trump administration is "still hopeful" that a planned summit with North Korea will take place. Sanders said Wednesday that threats from the North to scrap the meeting were "something that we fully expected." Sanders said President Donald Trump is "ready for very tough nego tiations," adding that "if they want to meet, we'll be ready and if they don't that's OK." She said if there is no meeting, the U.S. would "continue with the campaign of maxi mum pressure" against the North. North Korean rst vice foreign minister Kim Kye Gwan said in a statement carried by state media that "we are no longer inter ested in a negotiation that will be all about driving us into a corner and mak ing a one-sided demand for us to give up our nukes and this would force us to reconsider whether we would accept the North Korea-U.S. summit meeting." He criticized recent comments by Trump's top security adviser, John Bolton, and other U.S. of cials who have said the North should follow the "Libyan model" of nuclear disarmament and provide a "complete, veriable and irreversible dismantlement." He also took issue with U.S. views that the North should fully relin quish its biological and chemical weapons. Some analysts say bringing up Libya, which dismantled its rudimentary nuclear program in the 2000s in exchange for sanctions relief, jeopar dizes progress in negotiations with the North. Kim Jong Un took power weeks after former Libyan leader Moammar Gadha's grue some death at the hands of rebel forces amid a popular uprising in Octo ber 2011. The North has frequently used Gadha's death to justify its own nuclear development in the face of perceived U.S. threats. The North's warning Wednesday ts a past North Korean pattern of raising tensions to bolster its positions ahead of negotiations with Washington and Seoul. But the country also has a long history of scrapping deals with its rivals at the last minute. In 2013, North Korea abruptly canceled reunions for families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War just days before they were scheduled to begin to pro test what it called rising animosities ahead of joint drills between Seoul and Washington. In 2012, the North conducted a pro hibited long-range rocket launch weeks after it agreed to suspend weapons tests in return for food assistance. On Wednesday, senior ofcials from the two Koreas were to sit down at a border village to discuss how to implement their leaders' recent agreements to reduce military tensions along their heavily forti ed border and improve overall ties. But hours before the meeting was to start, the North informed the South that it would "indenitely suspend" the talks, according to Seoul's Unication Ministry. In a pre-dawn dispatch, the North's ofcial Korean Central News Agency, or KCNA, called the twoweek Max Thunder drills, which began Monday and reportedly include about 100 aircraft, an "intended military provocation" and an "apparent challenge" to last month's summit between Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, when the leaders met at the border in their countries' third summit talks since their formal division in 1948. "The United States must carefully contemplate the fate of the planned North Korea-U.S. summit amid the provocative military ruckus that it's causing with South Korean au thorities," the North said. "We'll keenly monitor how the United States and South Korean authorities will react." Kim Dong-yub, a North Korea expert at Seoul's Institute for Far Eastern Studies, said the North isn't trying to undermine the Trump-Kim talks. The North's reaction is more like a "complaint over Trump's way of playing the good cop and bad cop game with (Secretary of State Mike) Pompeo and Bolton," he said. Seoul's Unication Ministry, which is responsible for inter-Korean affairs, called North Korea's move "regrettable" and urged a quick return to talks. The Defense Ministry said the drills with the United States would go on as planned. Annual military drills between Washington and Seoul have long been a major source of contention between the Koreas, and analysts have wondered whether their continua tion would hurt the detente that, since an outreach by Kim in January, has replaced the insults and threats of war. Much larger springtime drills took place last month without the North's typically ery condemnation or accompanying weapons tests, though Washington and Seoul toned down those exercises. The KCNA dispatch said the U.S. aircraft mo bilized for the drills in clude nuclear-capable B-52 bombers and stealth F-22 ghter jets, two of the U.S. military assets it has previously said are aimed at launching nucle ar strikes on the North. Seoul has said F-22s are involved in the drills, but has not conrmed whether B-52s are taking part. In Washington, the U.S. State Department emphasized that Kim had previ ously indicated he under stood the need and purpose of the U.S. continuing its long-planned exercises with South Korea. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the U.S. had not heard any thing directly from North or South Korea that would change that. "We will continue to go ahead and plan the meet ing between President Trump and Kim Jong Un," Nauert said. U.S. Army Col. Rob Manning said the cur rent exercise is part of the U.S. and South Korea's "routine, annual train ing program to maintain a foundation of military readiness." Manning, a Pentagon spokesman, said the purpose of Max Thunder and exercise Foal Eagle another training event is to enhance the two nations' abilities to operate together to defend South Korea. "The defensive nature of these combined exer cises has been clear for many decades and has not changed," Manning said. Washington and Seoul delayed the earlier round of springtime drills be cause of the North-South diplomacy surrounding February's Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in the South, which saw Kim send his sister to the open ing ceremonies. Kim told visiting South Korean ofcials in March that he "understands" the drills would take place and expressed hope that they'll be modied once the situ ation on the peninsula sta bilizes, according to the South Korean government. Despite Kim's outreach, some experts were skep tical about whether he would completely give up a nuclear program that he had pushed so hard to build. The North previous ly vowed to continue nuclear development unless the United States pulls its 28,500 troops out of South Korea and withdraws its so-called "nuclear umbrel la" security guarantee to South Korea and Japan as a condition for its nuclear disarmament. Wednesday's threat could also be targeted at showing a domestic audi ence that Kim is willing to stand up to Washington. Kim has repeatedly told his people that his nukes are a "powerful treasured sword" that can smash U.S. hostility. On Tuesday, South Ko rea's military said North Korea was moving ahead with plans to close its nuclear test site next week, an assessment backed by U.S. researchers who say satellite images show the North has begun disman tling facilities at the site. The site's closure was set to come before the Kim-Trump summit, which had been shaping up as a crucial moment in the decades-long push to resolve the nuclear stand off with the North, which is closing in on the ability to viably target the main land United States with its long-range nuclear-armed missiles.

Page E6, BY MIKE STOBBE AP Medical WriterNEW YORK (AP) Screening blood donations for the Zika virus netted only a few infec tions at a cost of more than $5 million for each positive test re sult, according to new research. The study was the rst large look at the impact of guidelines set two years ago, when the Zika epidemic was an unfolding men ace in the U.S. and health of cials were scrambling to prevent new infections. The study, published Wednesday by the New England Jour nal of Medicine, found that the blood donation testing require ments offered little bang for the buck. It also raised questions about whether a cheaper testing method should be used. In more than 4 million blood donations checked in the United States, nine tested positive for the Zika virus. Of those, three were considered an infection threat. "We can't afford to spend that kind of money to nd a single case," said Dr. W. Ian Lipkin, a Columbia University infectious diseases expert who was not in volved in the research. Zika infections swept across Latin America and the Caribbean in 2015 and 2016, with a few very small outbreaks in the southern United States. The vi rus is mainly spread by tropical mosquitoes, but scientists also discovered some infections were spread through sex. Fearing Zika might also spread through transfusions, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2016 called on all blood banks to screen for it. "The risk from transfusion was poorly known. We put this testing in place as a precaution without really having solid data about the necessity for it," said Dr. Darrell Triulzi, a University of Pittsburgh transfusion medicine specialist. The new study is the rst large one to evaluate whether the test ing made sense, he added. The researchers looked at the results of screenings done by the American Red Cross, which collects 42 percent of the U.S. blood supply. They focused on donations from the Lower 48 states from June 2016 to September 2017. Health ofcials say there have been four transfusion-related Zika cases reported in Brazil, but none in the United States. In a related journal article, four Johns Hopkins Univer sity medical experts questioned whether it makes sense to main tain intensive testing for Zika. The FDA has never before re voked a recommendation to test blood donations for a potentially harmful germ, and it's unlikely the agency would do that now, experts said. But the agency could call for a less intensive screening called mini-pool testing. Rather than running a test on each separate donor, mini-pool testing in volves mixing samples from 16 donors and testing the batch. When a batch tests positive, in dividual testing is done to nd the tainted donation. That's what's done with West Nile virus and other germs, ex perts said. Mini-pool testing would cut the cost of Zika testing in half, said Susan Stramer, one of the study's authors and vice presi dent of scientic affairs at the Red Cross. Details from the study were presented to an FDA advisory committee in December. The committee voted against the idea of eliminating Zika testing of blood donations but endorsed mini-pool testing. The FDA has not yet acted on the panel's rec ommendation. APThis 2016 digitally-colorized electron microscope image made available by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows the Zika virus, in red, about 40 nanometers in diameter. UN health agency aims to wipe out trans fats globally CITIZEN TRIBUNE HealthEEE-2 Tuesday, May 15, 2018 Study finds little bang for the buck in Zika blood testing NEW YORK (AP) The World Health Organization has released a plan to help countries wipe out arteryclogging trans fats from the global food supply in the next ve years. The United Nations agen cy has in the past pushed to exterminate infectious diseases, but now its aiming to erase a hazard linked to chronic illness. In a statement Monday, the U.N. health agency said eliminating trans fats is critical to preventing deaths worldwide. WHO estimates that eating trans fats com monly found in baked and processed foods leads to the deaths of more than 500,000 people from heart disease every year. Its a crisis level, and its major front in our ght now, WHO DirectorGeneral Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a news conference in Geneva on Monday. Ofcials think it can be done in ve years because the work is well underway in many countries. Denmark did it 15 years ago, and since then the United States and more than 40 other higherincome countries have been working on getting the addi tives out of their food sup plies. The WHO is now pushing middleand lower-income countries to pick up the ght, said Dr. Francesco Branca, director of the WHOs De partment of Nutrition for Health and Development. Articial trans fats are unhealthy substances that are created when hydrogen is added to vegetable oil to make it solid, like in the cre ation of margarine or short ening. Health experts say they can be replaced with canola oil or other products. There are also naturally oc curring trans fats in some meats and dairy products. The WHO recommends that no more than 1 percent of a persons calories come from trans fats. Trans fats are a harmful compound that can be re moved easily without major cost and without any impact on the quality of the foods, Branca said. Countries will likely have to use regulation or legisla tion to get food makers to make the switch, experts said. At the WHO news confer ence Monday, a representative from a leading food industry trade group said companies are working to reduce trans fats in their products. We call on food pro ducers in our sector to take prompt action and we stand ready to support effective measures to work toward the elimination of industri ally produced trans fats and ensure a level playing eld in this area, said Rocco Rinaldi, secretary-general of the International Food and Beverage Alliance. Dr. Tom Frieden, a former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Pre vention who worked with WHO ofcials on the call to action, called its move unprecedented. The world is now setting its sights on todays lead ing killers particularly heart disease, which kills more people than any other cause in almost every country, said Frieden, president of Resolve to Save Lives, a New-York-based project of an organization called Vital Strategies. In the U.S., the rst trans fatty food to hit the mar ket was Crisco shortening, which went on sale in 1911. Trans fatty foods became increasingly popular beginning in the 1950s, partly because experts at the time thought they were healthier than cooking with butter or lard. Food makers liked arti cial trans fats because they prolonged product shelf life. They used them in dough nuts, cookies and deep-fried foods. But studies gradually revealed that trans fats wreck cholesterol levels in the blood and drive up the risk of heart disease. Health advocates say trans fats are the most harmful fat in the food supply. In the U.S., New York City in 2006 banned restau rants from serving food with trans fats. The same year the FDA required manufactur ers to list trans fat content information on food labels. Many manufacturers cut back, and studies showed trans fat levels in the blood of middle-aged U.S. adults fell by nearly 60 percent by the end of the decade. In 2015, the FDA took steps to nish the job of eliminating trans fats, call ing for manufacturers to stop selling trans fatty foods by June 18, 2018 a dead line that arrives next month. FDA ofcials have not said how much progress has been made or how they will en force their rule against food makers that dont comply. The removal of trans fats from the food supply as an additive counts as one of the major public health victo ries of the last decade, said Laura MacCleery, policy director for the Washington, D.C.-based advocacy group, Center for Science in the Public Interest.A Healthier World AP In this Aug. 8, 2007 file photo, a Milky-Way candy bar is deep-fried in oil free of trans fats at a food booth at the Indiana State Fair in Indianapolis. Indiana was the first state to require the switch at its state fair.

John Mc Cain, and the Senate GOP leadership is telling Trump it's past time for an apology from the White House. "The smart thing to do would have been ve days ago to just nip it in the bud and come out and apologize for it," said Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, the No. 3 Senate Republican. Trump's Capitol Hill lunch Tuesday with Senate Repub licans comes as the White House and its GOP allies are trying to coalesce around a political message ahead of the midterm elections. Also on the agenda is the White House push to get Senate ap proval on Trump's nominee for CIA director, as well as Trump's upcoming summit with North Korea. But much like the last time Trump was headed to the GOP Senate lunch to talk policy, in October 2017, the White House agenda was eclipsed by another story. During a closed-door meeting last week White House communications aide Kelly Sadler dismissed McCain's opposition to the CIA nominee by saying of the Arizona Republican: "He's dying anyway." The 81-yearold McCain was diagnosed in July with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. Sadler has apologized to the McCain family privately, but McCain's daughter has asked for a public apology. The White House, which has appeared more focused on the fact the leak took place than its substance, has said it has dealt with the matter in ternally but has refused to say how. In a tweet Monday, Trump said "so-called leaks" were a "massive over exaggeration" but added: "With that being said, leakers are traitors and cowards, and we will nd out who they are!" The issue has left many senators unsettled. Several of McCain's long-time col leagues, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, South Carolina's Lindsey Graham and former Vice President Joe Biden, have traveled to Arizona to visit the ailing senator. "I told him we miss him," McConnell said in a Senate speech late Monday. "I was condent I was speaking for everybody in the Sen ate in conveying our deepest respects for him and all he's done for the county in his ex traordinary life." Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Senate GOP leader, who has disagreed with Mc Cain in the past on policy is sues, was blunt: "The person who said it should apologize. It's totally inappropriate," he told The Associated Press. When Trump attended the October Senate GOP lun cheon, he was locked into a public feud with Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee. Earlier that month, Corker had accused the president of inten tionally being divisive and untruthful, and comparing the White House to an "adult day care center." The morning of the luncheon, Trump tweeted that Corker "couldn't get elected dog catcher in Tennessee." The major issue at the time was tax legislation, which Trump and Republicans needed to pass after failing to rally behind a comprehensive health care bill. The tax bill was ultimately successful, despite the Trump-Corker diversion. Corker has said he will not seek re-election this fall. White House spokesman Raj Shah said Trump would be focused Tuesday on getting his "team in place, par ticularly Gina Haspel, who we believe should be conrmed as the next CIA Di rector." "This is an individual who's had over three decades of exemplary service and experience with the CIA. And we hope that the Senate takes it upon themselves to conrm here," he said. Sen. John Barrasso, RWyo., the chairman of the Republican Policy Committee, said the senators look forward to talking Tuesday about the "tax cuts and his toric economic growth here at home, and the opportunity for peace on the Korean Peninsula that lies ahead." Republicans are increasingly relying on the president to help protect the GOP's slim 51-49 majority in the Senate this fall. CITIZEN TRIBUNE PoliticsTuesday, May 15, 2018 EEE-3 APPresident Donald Trump waves to members of the media as he walks across the South Lawn to board Marine One at the White House in Washington, Monday, May 14, 2018, for a short trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. WH staff comment on McCain overshadows Trump-Senate lunchTrump defends decision to revisit action on Chinese companyWASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump on Monday defended his efforts to help a Chinese telecommunications company that violated U.S. sanctions "get back into business, fast," despite criticism from Democrats and Republicans that the company poses a national security risk. "ZTE, the large Chi nese phone company, buys a big percentage of individual parts from U.S. companies," Trump tweeted Monday. "This is also reective of the larger trade deal we are negotiating with China and my personal relationship with President Xi." Trump over the weekend unexpectedly tweeted that he and Chinese President Xi Jinping were "work ing together" to give ZTE "a way to get back into business, fast," saying too many jobs in China were at stake after the U.S. gov ernment cut off access to its American suppliers. The surprising overture to China marked a dramatic departure from Trump's rhetoric toward China dur ing the campaign, when he said he would no longer allow China of "rape our country" and steal U.S. jobs. The U.S. Commerce Department last month blocked ZTE Corp., a ma jor supplier of telecom networks and smartphones based in southern China, from importing American components for seven years. The U.S. accused ZTE of misleading Ameri can regulators over sanc tions against North Korea and Iran. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said during an appearance at the National Press Club in Washington Monday that "ZTE did do some inappropriate things. They've admitted to that." But he added: "The question is: Are there alternative remedies to the one that we had originally put forward? And that's the area we will be explor ing very, very promptly." He did not say what other options were being discussed. Trump's unexpected announcement Sunday came as the two countries pre pared for additional trade talks in Washington this week. Given past vows to stop the ow of U.S. jobs to China and what he's called unfair trade practices, Trump's seeming concern about Chinese jobs was something of a backip. "A reversal of the ZTE decision could temporar ily tamp down trade ten sions by allowing the Chi nese to make concessions to the U.S. without losing face," said Eswar Prasad, a professor of trade policy at Cornell University. "Trump may have recognized that backing off on ZTE clears the path for him to claim at least a partial victory in the USChina trade dispute based on the concessions the Chinese seem prepared to offer." But the move was panned by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., tweeted Sunday that it would be "crazy" to allow ZTE to operate in the U.S. without tighter restrictions. "Problem with ZTE isn't jobs & trade, it's national security & espionage," he wrote. Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer accused Trump of "backing off" and "doing a 180 on Chi na." "What about jobs in America, Mr. President? What about the millions of jobs that are lost because of what China has done?" he asked, adding: "Why on earth would President Trump promise to help a Chinese telecom company that has outed U.S. sanc tions and whose practices are a risk to our national security?" At the White House, spokesman Raj Shah said Trump's request for Ross to re-examine the issue was part of a "give and take" with the Chinese. "It's a signicant issue of concern to the Chinese government, you know, and in our bilateral rela tionship there's a give and take and we discuss these issues," he said. "Obviously this is part of a very complex relationship between the United States and China that involves economic issues, national security issues and the like." Shah also pushed back on the idea that Trump was retreating from his cam paign promise to be tough on China. "This president has taken China to task for its unfair trade practices," he said. ZTE, a company with more than 70,000 employees that has supplied some of the world's biggest tele com companies, said in early May that it had halted its main operations as a result of U.S. action. "I've never seen a presi dent step in and reverse an agency decision like this. It's not clear, of course, if he's planning to really reverse it or think of a so lution in a larger context, but it is something that is just out of the norm," said Amanda DeBusk, the chair of the international trade and government regulations practice at the rm Dechert LLP. The widening trade dis pute between the world's two biggest economies has taken a toll on both sides. U.S. companies that export to China have had goods held up in China's ports. The block on ZTE was a heavy blow for the company but also hurt the U.S. companies it buys from. According to IDC data, ZTE sources more than 40 percent of its components from the U.S., creating a multibillion-dollar revenue stream for suppliers like Qualcomm and Intel. China objected to ZTE's punishment at trade talks in Beijing this month, and the American delegation agreed to report them to Trump. ZTE has asked the department to suspend the seven-year ban on doing business with U.S. exporters. By cutting off access to U.S. suppliers of essen tial components such as microchips, the ban threatens ZTE's existence, the company has said. China on Monday welcomed Trump's comments. "We think highly of the U.S. statement regarding ZTE's case," said Lu Kang, a spokesman for China's foreign ministry. "We are currently in close communication over details of the implementation." The foreign ministry said Vice Premier Liu He will visit the U.S. from Tuesday to Saturday for consultations with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. The U.S. imposed the penalty on Shenzhenbased ZTE after nding that the company, which had already paid a $1.2 billion ne, not only failed to discipline employees that were involved, but paid them bonuses. Ross last month accused ZTE of misleading the department and warned, "This egregious behavior cannot be ignored."

Page E8, FAIRFIELD, Calif. (AP) A Northern California woman denied that she or her husband abused their 10 children after authorities said the kids suffered punc ture wounds, burns, bruis ing and injuries consistent with being shot with a pel let gun. The children, ages 4 months to 12 years, were removed from their home March 31 after Ina Rog ers contacted authorities to report that her oldest child was missing, police said Monday. Ofcers went to the home in Faireld 46 miles (74 ki lometers) northeast of San Francisco and found lthy conditions, Lt. Greg Hurl but said. "Ofcers located unsafe and unsanitary living condi tions including garbage and spoiled food on the oor, animal and human feces and a large amount of debris making areas of the house unpassable," he said. Authorities said some of the injuries to the chil dren appeared to have been caused by someone shooting a pellet gun. The father, 29-year-old Jonathan Allen, was arrest ed Friday after the children were interviewed. He has pleaded not guilty to seven counts of torture and nine counts of felony child abuse and was being held on $5.2 million bail. The children did not require medical attention when they were removed. Stories about the alleged abuse came out gradually over the past six weeks and eight of the children told professionals about incidents dating back several years, authorities said. Sharon Henry, chief deputy district attorney for Solano County, said she was "horried" by the the children's statements and that torture was carried out in the house "for sadistic purposes." She declined to elaborate. "It literally breaks your heart, and you're outraged by how a parent or anyone could commit those acts," Henry said. Rogers, 30, was arrested on suspicion of neglect last month and released after posting $10,000 bail. She denied Monday her husband had abused the children. "There's no broken bones, there is no major scars, nothing," Rogers told reporters in front of her house. "My kids get bumped and bruised and scratched because they're kids but that's it." Rogers gave journalists a tour of the house, a fourbedroom home with scuffed walls and animal feces in the bathroom. Rogers said the children slept in one bedroom be cause they were close and that cots were stored in a bedroom closet. The home's other rooms were used as a master bedroom, playroom and meditation room. On the day the children were removed, the house was messy because she had just torn it apart looking for her missing son, who was angry because his parents had taken away his tablet computer, Rogers said. Rogers said she feels the family is being judged for having so many children and choosing to homeschool them. She and her husband both came from broken homes and they wanted a large family, Rogers said. Child protection ofcials made one prior visit to the home several years ago, Rogers said. She did not say why. Rogers said she works the graveyard shift as an EKG technician at a heart moni toring company and her husband is a tattoo artist. Aleida Quartman, 23, who described herself as Rogers' co-worker, said the mother spoiled her children. The messy house was just life with children, cats, a dog and sh, Quartman said. "She told me she's never lived alone and now that her kids are gone and her husband is gone, she's just a mess," Quartman said. Peggy Allen, the mother of Jonathan Allen, said she had talked to Rogers about the importance of keeping a clean house. She is estranged from her son and he has kept his fam ily away from the children, she said. "We're a Christian family and Jonathan has not been raised that way," she said. Neighbor Larry Magnaye said he had no idea there were 10 children living in the house across the street. The parents waved when leaving the driveway, but he never saw the children in the yard or heard them play ing in the backyard pool. "It's a pretty big house," Magnaye said. "But I don't know how you can keep it quiet when you have 10 kids. I can't keep it quiet with one, two you know?" CITIZEN TRIBUNE NationEEE-4 Tuesday, May 15, 2018 APThe home of Ina Rogers and her husband, Jonathan Allen, is seen Monday, May 14, 2018, in Fairfield, Calif.

Now Deter and others who have recently lost homes to the lava-spewing mountain are on an urgent quest for answers about insurance, desperate to learn whether their cover age will offer any help af ter molten rock wiped out most of what they owned. The eruption has de stroyed about two dozen homes in the Leilani Es tates subdivision on the Big Island. On Monday, a new s sure spewing lava and toxic gas opened and a crack in the ground that emerged a day earlier sent molten rock crawling toward the ocean, ofcials said. Near ly 20 ssures have opened since the Kilauea volcano started erupting 12 days ago, and ofcials warn it may soon have a steam eruption that would shoot boulders and ash miles into the sky. Few insurance companies will issue policies for homes in Leilani Estates because it is in an area deemed by the U.S. Geo logical Survey to have a high risk of lava. But homeowners are not without options. One pos sibility is the Hawaii Prop erty Insurance Association, a nonprot collection of insurance companies created by state lawmak ers in 1991 to provide ba sic property insurance for people who are unable to buy coverage in the private market. The horror of seeing houses turned to ash has motivated some people who had no insurance to scramble to purchase a policy. The association announced last week that it would issue policies to uninsured homeowners in the affected area but they will have to wait six months. Some homeowners believe re coverage will sufce for homes burned by re from the lava. And a list of frequently asked questions from the Hawaii Insurance Division sup ports that idea, saying that lava damage may be cov ered "as a re peril." However, there are ex ceptions. If policies spe cically exclude lava damage, the re coverage will not apply, said Judy Moa, an insurance broker who specializes in catastrophic coverage for Hawaii. "The cause of damage is lava at the end of the day," she said. "If lava came down the hill, and they have lava exclusion and trees catch re, which burn the house, that's not covered." Some homeowners forgo policies that include lava coverage because they can cost more than $3,000 per year, said Moa, who has elded many calls from anxious homeowners. The same insurance questions haunt people whose homes are standing but could still be torched by future lava ows. Todd Corrigan and his wife left their Leilani Es tates home on May 4 after a magnitude-6.9 earthquake knocked belongings off their shelves. That jolt convinced them it was time to evacuate. Corrigan said the most stressful part of the expe rience might be the uncer tainty about what insur ance will cover. His policy will pay for damage from a re but not from lava. His insurer also cautioned him that it will not cover damage if he has not been at home for 30 days. That requirement could be a problem if he is gone for a long time. "You have to worry about that stress when you're trying to deal with everything else," Corrigan said. Coverage details vary depending on policies and companies, said Insurance Division Commissioner Gordon Ito, who encour aged homeowners to contact agents to nd out what is covered. State Farm stopped writing policies for homes in the two highest-risk lava zones in the 1990s, but the company grandfathered-in any existing policies, said Kim Silva, a State Farm sales executive in Hawaii. The company's policies cover re from volcanic activity, she said, "but ev ery claim has to be han dled on its own merit." Deter's daughters live in the same area as their 88-year-old mother. They know the eruption risks, so they made sure their moth er's home was covered by a policy that included lava. The family's Hawaiibased insurance agent assured daughter Vickie Pruitt that her mother's house was fully covered for lava. But a phone call from an adjuster on the U.S. main land told them it looked like the damage was from an earthquake not the lava and that the home would not be covered. "I'm like, 'What?'" Pruitt said. "I'm laughing hyster ically. But it's not funny. It's tragic." They were waiting for a follow-up call they hoped would provide more clar ity.

AroundOsceola.com UNITED NATIONS (AP) U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said Tuesday that Israel had acted with "restraint" in its deadly con frontation with Palestinians at the Gaza border, while Kuwait's ambassador urged the U.N. Security Council to offer protection to unarmed Palestinians. After ambassadors joined in a moment of silence for the more than 50 Palestin ians killed by Israeli forces in the bloodiest day in Gaza since a 2014 war, divisions among council members quickly re-emerged. Haley said Israel was facing Hamas extremists who incited people who lobbed aming objects toward the Israeli side of the border fence and urged protest marchers to breach it. "Who among us would accept this type of activity on your border? No one would," she said. "No coun try in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has." Haley also insisted the violence had nothing to do with the opening of a U.S. embassy in contested Jerusalem, saying that Gaza's Hamas rulers have been inciting violence there for years. Palestinians condemned the embassy opening as taking Israel's side in their conict. Kuwait's envoy, who requested the meeting, said that Israel was violating international law and that the council needs to offer protection unarmed Pales tinians. "The Palestinian people are looking to the United Nations and the Security Council to activate what this organization has taken upon itself in order to achieve the maintenance of international peace and security," said Kuwaiti Ambassador Man sour Al-Otaibi. More than 50 Palestin ians were killed and over 1,200 wounded by Israeli gunre amid mass protests Monday. Israel said its troops were defending its border and accused Hamas militants of trying to attack under the cover of the pro test. No joint statement or action followed a similar meeting after protests in March, and two U.N. diplo mats said members couldn't reach unanimous agreement Monday on issuing a pro posed statement circulated by Kuwait. The diplomats insisted on speaking anonymously because the discus sions were supposed to be private. The draft statement, obtained by The Associated Press, would have ex pressed "outrage and sor row" at the killings, sought an "independent and trans parent investigation," and called on all sides to exer cise restraint. It also would have demanded that all countries comply with a decades-old Security Council resolution that called on them not to have embassies in contested Jerusalem. The U.S. vetoed a Secu rity Council resolution in December that would have required President Donald Trump to rescind his dec laration of Jerusalem as Is rael's capital. Earlier Monday, the Pal estinian U.N. envoy urged the United Nations' most powerful body to condemn the killings. Israel, meanwhile, called on the coun cil to condemn Hamas, the Islamic militant group that rules the coastal strip and led the protests. Israel isn't a council member, nor are the Pales tinians. Monday's violence came as the U.S. and Israel cel ebrated the embassy open ing, the rst ofcial rec ognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital after 70 years. The move infuriated Palestinians, who seek eastern Jerusalem as a future capital of their own. "A great day for Israel!" Trump tweeted. "A tragic day for the Palestinians," retorted their U.N. ambassador, Riyad Mansour. In remarks to re porters and a letter to the Security Council president, he called on the council to "make its voice heard to stop the carnage," bring those responsible to justice and protect civilians. Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon said the council needed to speak out against Hamas. "Every casualty on the border is a victim of Hamas' war crimes, every death is a result of Hamas' terror activity, and these casualties are solely Hamas' responsibility," Danon said in a statement. The demonstration Mon day culminated a week slong Palestinian campaign against a blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt after Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007. Protesters set tires ablaze, sending thick plumes of black smoke into the air, and hurled re bombs and stones toward Israeli soldiers across the border. The Israeli military said Hamas tried to carry out bombing and shooting attacks under the cover of the protests and released video of protesters ripping away parts of the barbed-wire border fence. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said he was "profoundly alarmed and concerned by the sharp escalation of violence" and the number of dead. "It is imperative that ev eryone shows the utmost re straint to avoid further loss of life," he tweeted Tuesday. CITIZEN TRIBUNEWorldTuesday, May 15, 2018 EEE-5 APThe United Nations Security Council observes a moment of silence for those killed during the deadly violence along the Israel-Gaza border before a meeting to discuss the situation, Tuesday, May 15, 2018, at United Nations headquarters.US at UN: Israel acted with 'restraint' in Gaza border clash SKorean military says NKorea preparing nuke site closureSEOUL, South Korea (AP) North Korea is moving ahead with plans to close its nuclear test site next week, South Korea's military said Tuesday, an assessment backed by U.S. researchers who say satel lite images show the North has begun dismantling fa cilities at the site. The site's closure would set up next month's histor ic summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump, which is shaping up to be a crucial moment in the global diplomatic push to resolve the nuclear standoff with the North. Still, analysts say the closure wouldn't represent a material step toward full denuclearization. Roh Jae-cheon, spokesman for South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the South's military has seen signs that the North is conducting "preparatory work" so that it can carry out its plans to shut down its northeastern testing ground. He did not specify what the military has seen. But an analysis by 38 North, a North Korea-fo cused U.S. website, said commercial imagery taken last week shows that sev eral operational support buildings have been razed and rails for mining carts have apparently been re moved. The site has been used for each of North Korea's six underground nuclear test explosions. "Commercial satellite imagery from May 7 pro vided the rst denitive evidence that dismantle ment of the test site was already well underway," the website wrote. North Korea's Foreign Ministry announced Satur day that it will dismantle the test site between May 23 and 25. To provide transparency, the minis try said journalists from South Korea, the United States, China, Russia and Britain will be invited to observe the destruction of tunnels and the removal of observation and research facilities at the site. Seoul's Unication Ministry said it was informed by the North on Tuesday that eight South Korean journalists will be invited. The North did not reveal the number of spots it will give to non-Korean jour nalists, according to the ministry. The eight South Korean journalists four each from a wire agency and a broadcaster that have yet to be determined will take a chartered ight from Beijing to the North Korean coastal town of Wonsan on May 22, the ministry said. The reporters will then be trans ported by a chartered train to the nuclear test site in Punggye-ri. Kim has already declared his nuclear weap ons and missile program as nished and the nuclear testing site's mission as completed. Some ana lysts question whether the dismantling of the site is aimed at destroying evidence. While South Korea's presidential ofce had said that Kim told South Ko rean President Moon Jaein during their summit last month that international experts will be invited to witness the closure, the North's Foreign Ministry statement on Saturday did not include any references to allowing experts at the site. The two Koreas will hold a high-level meeting Wednesday at a border truce village to discuss setting up military and Red Cross talks aimed at reducing border tensions and restarting reunions be tween families separated by the Korean War. Seoul's Unication Ministry said Tuesday that the meeting will discuss ways to carry out peace com mitments made during the inter-Korean summit. The discussions may also in clude setting up workinglevel talks between the countries' sports ofcials over plans to eld com bined teams in some sports at the Asian Games in Au gust. After their April 27 meeting, Kim and Moon issued a vague vow for the "complete" denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. They also agreed to stop all hostile acts over "land, sea and air" that can cause military tensions and clashes, establish a liaison ofce in the North Korean border town of Kaesong, and to resume temporary reunions between war-separated families. South Korea, which brokered the planned talks between Trump and Kim, says Kim has genuine interested in dealing away his nuclear weapons in re turn for economic benets. But there are linger ing doubts about whether Kim will ever agree to fully relinquish his nukes. Pyongyang for decades has been pushing a con cept of "denuclearization" that bears no resemblance to the American denition, vowing to pursue nuclear development unless Washington removes its 28,500 troops from South Korea and the nuclear umbrella defending South Korea and Japan.

(AP) Justin Thomas has come a long way in 18 months. All the way to No. 1 in the world. He had one PGA Tour victory and was No. 35 in the world in October 2016 when he began a steady rise through a deep eld of stars. Thomas won seven times in a span of 32 tournaments around the world, including his rst major. The nal step to the top of the ranking was an illustration of how he got there. He made the cut on the number at The Players Championship, had a 68-66 weekend and tied for 11th. That was enough to end Dustin Johnsons 64-week atop the world ranking. Im very proud to have gotten there, but it means more to me how long I can hold it, Thomas said in a text message while ying home to south Florida for a twoweek break. Have to continue to work hard with how well so many guys are playing. Thomas became the 21st player and seventh American to reach No. 1 since the world ranking began in 1986. He was helped by ve victories last year, including the PGA Championship and a FedEx Cup playoff event. But this season alone, his worst nish in ranking events is a tie for 22nd. Thomas was projected to get to No. 1 after this week and could have done it by missing the cut if Johnson had nished out of the top 11. I would much rather shoot 10 under on the weekend and earn it as opposed to missing the cut and have DJ not play well, Thomas said. DJs a hell of a player. If hes not playing well, hes kind of like me this week. Hes hanging around, hell back-door a top 10 or just play his way into a good nish. And thats why hes been No. 1 in the world for a year now. Johnson still had a say in the matter. A two-way tie for fth would have been enough, meaning Johnson needed a 33 on the back nine at the TPC Sawgrass. But he three-putted the 13th, chopped up the 14th for a double bogey, and that was that. Johnsons stay at No. 1 was the longest by any players since Tiger Woods was at the top for ve years ending in 2010. Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Jason Day didnt last more than two weeks at No. 1 the rst time they got there. I want to have it for a really long time because that means Im playing better than everybody else for an extended period of time, Thomas said when he nished his nal round. Get hot for a year, couple years and then fall off the map, that doesnt really mean a whole lot to me. Thomas plans to return at the Memorial. He is not assured of being No. 1 when he returns because Spieth, who went up one spot to No. 3, is playing the next two weeks.Justin Thomas finally reaches No. 1 in the worldPONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Paul Tesori detached the yellow ag at the 18th hole and carried it with him as he walked off the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. For Tesori, this was more than just a championship souvenir. It was part his childhood and could be his most treasured piece of golf memorabilia. Tesori, the caddie for The Players Championship winner Webb Simpson, grew up down the road from Sawgrass and has played the course more times than anyone in the eld. When Simpson won by four strokes Sunday, Tesori got the rst and maybe the longest embrace. This means about as much as anything could, Tesori said later. Tesori picked up golf at a young age thanks to the inuence of his grandfather, who was a starter at the nearby Ponte Vedra Inn & Club for 30 years. His rst golf tournament as a fan was The Players in 1977, when the event was still played across the street at Sawgrass Country Club. He gures hes played the Stadium Course more than 700 times, rst getting on at age 9 because his grandfather was the courses rst superintendent. Hes so entrenched with the area that he and his wife, Michelle, run the Tesori Family Foundation, a nonprot organization founded in 2009 to help those in need in Northeast Florida. Following the birth of their 4-year-old son Isaiah, who has Down Syndrome, they expanded the organization to add programs for kids with special needs. After Tesori dropped Simpsons bag, he picked up Isaiah and carried him around during interviews and for part of the trophy presentation. That was the easiest part of Tesoris day, even though Simpson started the nal round with a seven-shot lead. Ive been fortunate enough to be part of a lot of leads, but Ive never had anything close to this, Tesori said. It was stressful to be honest with you. Relief set in at the nal hole, and Tesori planned to enjoy the night with family and friends. Simpson surely will be nearby. The two are close friends who worked through two and a half years of miserable putting to get to this point. Paul has been just a great friend through all this, a great co-worker, said Simpson, who won the 2012 U.S. Open with Tesori on his bag. Through that, I expected him to be frustrated at times, and he never was. He never got frustrated. He stayed positive on my worst days. He would try to give me a pep talk. I think to go through that, you need someone more than a caddie, you need a friend, and he denitely was that for me.DAYS SHOULDERJason Day grimaced and then grabbed his left shoulder after an approach shot at No. 16 in the nal round. But Day said the recurring pain was nothing to be concerned about. Every now and then, it happens where my shoulder ... feels like it pops out, but its like more of a sting, Day said after nishing 13 under and tied for fth. I dont know if its from because Ive had back issues and its gone from my back to my shoulder now. Day said he felt the same pain at Bay Hill in nearby Orlando in March. He added he does between 30 and 45 minutes of exercises daily in hopes of staying loose. Its been bugging me pretty much the whole year, heh said. Its been pretty sore.

I House Ad CITIZEN TRIBUNE PoliticsMonday, May 14, 2018 EEE-3 WASHINGTON (AP) In a surprising overture to China, President Don ald Trump said Sunday he would help a Chinese tele communications company get back into business, saying too many jobs in China are at stake after the U.S. government cut off ac cess to its American suppli ers. At issue is the Commerce Departments move last month to block the ZTE Corp., a major supplier of telecoms networks and smartphones based in south ern China, from importing American components for seven years. The U.S. ac cused ZTE of misleading American regulators after it settled charges of violating sanctions against North Ko rea and Iran. The case dates to before Trump took ofce in January 2007 but the Commerce Departments decision came amid worsening trade tensions between the U.S. and China centered on tech nology-related intellectual property. Trumps unexpected announcement came as the two countries prepared to continue trade talks in Washington this week. Given his past vows to stop the ow of U.S. jobs to China and crack down on what he says are unfair trade practices, Trumps tweet of con cern about Chinese jobs was something of a backip. A reversal of the ZTE decision could temporar ily tamp down trade ten sions by allowing the Chi nese to make concessions to the U.S. without losing face, said Eswar Prasad, a professor of trade policy at Cornell University. Trump may have recognized that backing off on ZTE clears the path for him to claim at least a partial victory in the US-China trade dispute based on the concessions the Chinese seem prepared to offer. ZTE, which has more than 70,000 employees and has supplied networks or equipment to some of the worlds biggest telecoms companies, said in early May that it had halted its main operations as a result of the departments denial order. Trump, who has taken a hard line on trade and technology issues with Beijing, tweeted that he and Chinese leader Xi Jinping are work ing together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast. Too many jobs in China lost. Com merce Department has been instructed to get it done! Expanding on Trumps message, White House dep uty press secretary Lindsay Walters said in a statement, The Presidents tweet un derscores the importance of a free, fair, balanced, and mutually benecial eco nomic, trade and investment relationship between the United States and China. It was not exactly clear what Trump was propos ing for ZTE, or whether it would involve rolling back the Commerce Departments decision. The White House deferred to the Commerce Department on any specic questions relating to ongoing regulator action. In a later tweet, Trump suggested the U.S. and China were moving forward on the trade negotiations, but it was not clear how the ZTE case would t into the big ger picture. Ive never seen a presi dent step in and reverse an agency decision like this. Its not clear, of course, if hes planning to really re verse it or think of a solu tion in a larger context, but it is something that is just out of the norm, said Amanda DeBusk, the chair of the international trade department at the New York City-based law rm Hughes Hubbard & Reed. DeBusk, a former Com merce Department assistant secretary for export enforcement, said Trumps announcement indicates he is looking to accomplish his objectives on trade with China on a much larger level. The widening trade dispute between the worlds two biggest economies has taken a toll on both sides. U.S. companies that export to China have seen their goods held up at Chinas ports amid tougher inspections. The block on ZTE was a heavy blow for the company but also hurt the U.S. companies it buys from. According to IDC data, ZTE sources more than 40 percent of its com ponents from the U.S., cre ating a multibillion-dollar revenue stream for suppliers like Qualcomm and Intel. Chinese ofcials raised their objections to ZTEs punishment at trade talk in Beijing earlier this month, and the American delegation agreed to report them to Trump. ZTE has asked the department to suspend the seven-year ban on doing business with U.S. technol ogy exporters. By cutting off access to U.S. suppli ers of essential components such as microchips, the ban threatens ZTEs existence, the company has said. At the Beijing talks, the Trump administration handed China a list of hard-line demands that trade experts said could make it even more difcult to resolve the trade disputes. Both sides had been expected to dig in for a ght over their trade imbalance at this weeks talks. But Trump set a more re assuring tone in a separate tweet Sunday, saying the two economic giants were working well together on trade, but past negotiations have been so one sided in favor of China, for so many years, that it is hard for them to make a deal that benets both countries. But be cool, it will all work out! Trump is seeking to cut the chronic U.S. trade de cit by $100 billion and gain concessions over the poli cies that foreign companies say force them to share technology in order to gain market access. The U.S. imposed the penalty on Shenzhen-based ZTE after discovering that the company, which had paid a $1.2 billion ne in the case, had failed to dis cipline employees involved and paid them bonuses in stead. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross last month accused ZTE of misleading the department and warned, This egregious behavior cannot be ignored. California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the intelligence committee, criticized Trump for soften ing his stance on ZTE. Our intelligence agencies have warned that ZTE technology and phones pose a major cyber security threat. You should care more about our national security than Chinese jobs, Schiff said in a tweet directed at Trump.Pompeo: NKorea needs US security assurances for nuke pactTrump says US will help penalized Chinese companyWASHINGTON (AP) The United States is offering assurances to North Koreas Kim Jong Un as it seeks to put in motion the potential for a sweeping nuclear deal ahead of President Donald Trumps upcoming summit with the North Korean leader. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. will need to provide security assurances to Kim if theyre able to forge an agreement. Pompeo met with Kim last week in North Korea, helping set the stage for Trumps historic meeting with Kim in Singapore on June 12. Trump has set an ambitious goal for North Korea to get rid of its nuclear weapons in a permanent and veri able way. In return, the U.S. is willing to help the impov erished nation strengthen its economy. Pompeo was asked on Fox News Sunday whether the U.S. was in effect telling Kim he could stay in power if he met the U.S. demands. Pompeo said: We will have to provide security assuranc es, to be sure. The top U.S. diplomat did not elaborate, but his com ment could refer to the type of assurances North Korea has sought in the past. A statement issued during in ternational negotiations with North Korea in 2005 over its nuclear weapons develop ment said the United States afrmed that it has no nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula and has no intention to attack or invade (North Ko rea) with nuclear or conventional weapons. The North has said it needs nuclear weapons to counter what it believes is a U.S. ef fort to strangle its economy and overthrow the Kim gov ernment. Make no mistake about it, Americas interest here is preventing the risk that North Korea will launch a nuclear weapon into L.A. or Denver or to the very place were sit ting here this morning, Pompeo said from Washington. Thats our objective, thats the end state the president has laid out and thats the mission that he sent me on this past week, to put us on the trajec tory to go achieve that. Pressed in a separate in terview on whether the U.S. would seek regime change, Pompeo said only time will tell how these negotiations will proceed. The president uses lan guage that says well see, Pompeo told CBSs Face the Nation. The American leadership under President Trump has its eyes wide open. North Korea said Saturday that all of the tunnels at the countrys northeastern nuclear test site will be destroyed by explosion in less than two weeks, ahead of Kims sum mit with Trump. Observation and research facilities and ground-based guard units will also be removed, the North said. Pompeo praised it as one step along the way. John Bolton, the presi dents national security ad viser, described the types of steps that North Korea would need to take as part of a de nuclearization process, in cluding the potential involvement of a processing center in Tennessee. The implementation of the decision means getting rid of all the nuclear weap ons, dismantling them, taking them to Oak Ridge, Ten nessee, Bolton said in an interview with ABCs This Week. It means getting rid of the uranium enrichment and plutonium reprocessing capabilities, adding the pro cess would also need to address North Koreas ballistic missiles. I dont think anybody be lieves youre going to sign the complete ending of the nuclear program in one day. But we are also very much interested in operationalizing the commitment as quickly as possible, Bolton said. Bolton said in an inter view with CNNs State of the Union that North Korea should not look for economic aid from us. I think what the prospect for North Korea is to become a normal nation, to behave and interact with the rest of the world the way South Korea does. The prospect for North Korea is unbelievably strong if theyll commit to denuclearization. Thats what the president is going to say, he said. Pompeo said private-sector Americans could help rebuild North Koreas en ergy grid and develop the countrys infrastructure. He described the possibility of American agriculture being used to support North Korea so they can eat meat and have healthy lives. South Korea has said Kim has shown an interest in deal ing away his nuclear weap ons in return for economic benets. But it remains un clear if Kim would ever fully relinquish the weapons he probably views as his only guarantee of survival. WASHINGTON (AP) Renewed tensions between the U.S. and Cuba arent stopping the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts from shining a spotlight on the islands rich cultural heritage during whats be ing billed as the largest Cuban arts festival ever held in the United States. Artes de Cuba: From the Island to the World, which runs through May 20, showcases the work of more than 400 Cuban and Cuban-American artists across more than 50 events. The program includes the salsa band Los Van Van and other musicians, visual artists, movies, theater companies and ballerina Alicia Alonso and the Ballet Nacional de Cuba. Cuba is a cultural powerhouse, and to present such a diverse slate of Cuban and Cuban-American artists all in a two-week span is unprecedented, said Deborah F. Rutter, president of the Kennedy Center. The festival is not without controversy. It has come under re from Cuban-American law makers, including GOP Reps. Carlos Curbelo, Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida, as well as Rep. Albio Sires, D-N.J. They wrote to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in April urging him to consider the advisability of allowing so many pro-Castro regime Cuban nationals to enter the United States. Last year, the United States withdrew more than half of its diplomats from Cuba and halted visa processing, citing mysterious health attacks in Havana that have harmed at least 24 Americans. Full diplomatic ties be tween the U.S. and the communist nation had been re stored in 2015, under the Obama administration. Curator Alicia Adams, vice president of Interna tional Programming and Dance at the Kennedy Center, pushed back at the notion that the festival has ideologi cal overtones. It is important for people in this country to be ex posed to, in the aggregate, the extraordinary talent that exists in Cuba, she told The Associated Press. The Kennedy Center has a golden rule, and that is that we maintain the ultimate curatorial authority.Cuban culture spotlighted by Kennedy Center festivalAPIn this Oct. 8, 2012, file photo, a salesperson stands at counters selling mobile phones produced by ZTE Corp. at an appliance store in Wuhan in central Chinas Hubei province.

Page E12, CITIZEN TRIBUNE NationEEE-4 Monday, May 14, 2018 With exposes, book and TV deals, Farrow on run of a lifetime NBC speeding up trend of revived comedy seriesUN agency calls for all countries to rid foods of trans fatNEW YORK (AP) Perhaps the least surprising as pect of The New Yorker magazines story on abuse allega tions against New Yorks attorney general last week was Ronan Farrows name on it as one of the authors. Farrow has been on a head-spinning run that started in October with an expose on movie mogul Harvey Wein stein, for which he shared a Pulitzer Prize with Jodi Kan tor and Megan Twohey of The New York Times. The 30-year-old journalist has since written about Is raeli operatives collecting information on former Obama aides, the National Enquirer buying stories to keep them quiet, a Playboy models story of an affair with President Donald Trump and Weinsteins intricate efforts to conceal his behavior. He also just released a book on international diplomacy and Rex Tillersons tenure at the State Department. On Friday, Little, Brown and Co. announced it would publish Catch and Kill, about efforts to silence women who ac cuse powerful men of sexual misconduct. Eric Schneiderman, the attorney general accused of physically and verbally abusing former girlfriends, an nounced his resignation less than four hours after The New Yorker posted the story, which Farrow co-wrote with investigative reporter Jane Mayer. You could say he has a bright future in journalism, deadpanned Bill Grueskin, a veteran editor and Columbia University professor. Appropriately, the son of actress Mia Farrow and his estranged father, Woody Allen, has a story Hollywood would love, complete with rising from a point where he questioned his career and the investigation that earned him a Pulitzer. (Farrow has not reported on his sister Dylans allegations that Allen molested her which he has de nied but said hes proud of her for making them). Farrow was a boy wonder even before getting into jour nalism. The future Rhodes Scholar and Yale Law School graduate nished Bard College at age 15. He worked for the U.S. state department in the Obama administration and in Nigeria for UNICEF. I wound up in situations through my work in advo cacy and government where I was seeing stories play out that I thought needed telling, sometimes in tough places where press access was constrained, like Darfur, Farrow explained his turn to journalism, in an email interview with The Associated Press while traveling in Europe last week. Writing about it was just about the only thing I could do. Print stories led to television work, where Farrows articulateness and good looks didnt hurt. MSNBC gave him a daytime show, torpedoed by low ratings after a year. Farrow remained at NBC News as a reporter and began working on the Weinstein story. The story matched his skills and persistence, said New Yorker Editor David Remnick. The heroic gures in these stories are not Ronan Far row or Jane Mayer or Jodi Kantor or Megan Twohey, he said. Its the people who put themselves on the line to speak truthfully about what has been so hidden and secre tive, and that takes immense courage on their part and, on the part of the reporters, real patience and empathy of the kind that you dont really need when youre doing crime reporting or political reporting. How the Weinstein story wound up at The New Yorker and not on NBC is a well-publicized, if not fully under stood story. NBC said that after much work, Farrows story still wasnt ready for air. Whats murky is why he didnt continue working on it for NBC. NBC noted that he did not have an exclusive contract. Farrow hasnt discussed this in detail, although he plans to in his new book. Farrow was introduced to Remnick by Ken Auletta, the veteran New Yorker writer who previously tried to crack the Weinstein story and had talked to Farrow about that experience. Remnick said he initially was skeptical, but saw Farrow had the makings of a good piece. He kept him working on it; the magazine was fueled by competition with the Times, which he also knew was on to the story. Farrow talked in a commencement address at Loyola Marymount University earlier this month of a low point where I had spent a year in rooms with executives telling me it wasnt a story. He recalled a phone conversation with my poor, longsuffering partner. I remember saying, I swung too wide, I gambled too much, I lost everything and no one will even know, he told the college graduates. Remnicks interest provided a much-needed boost in condence. He said he remembers as a young reporter how getting encouraging words from some veteran, leg endary journalists indicated he was on the right track and that they had his back. That means a lot to a reporter, Remnick said. If you dont have it, you feel at sea. Although NBC has defended itself, and declined to fur ther discuss it for this story, the damaging impression that it missed a big story has stuck. Farrows work on Weinstein has clearly helped him with other stories. He told the AP he hopes other people with difcult stories to tell see that and understand they can trust me to respect them and treat them with care. Farrow has signed with HBO to make a series of docu mentaries. He credited freedom given by MSNBC to tell in-depth stories for inspiring the HBO deal. Is there anywhere else to go when youre on the top of the mountain at age 30? In my experience, that scale of a story doesnt come along very often, Remnick said, and the only way for the next one to come along is to work very, very hard. Thats something that I have no doubt that hell do.BY DAVID BAUDER AP Media WriterNEW YORK (AP) NBC is turbocharging the trend of reviving canceled comedies with its pickup of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The network quickly swooped in after Fox dumped it last week, adding it to NBCs midseason schedule. While the fan outcry was heartening, NBC Enter tainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said Sunday that because of business considerations, the pickup already was in the works. The show is made by an NBC Universal-owed studio. Greenblatt said if he had known earlier in the series development that Andy Samberg was going to star in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, NBCs studio never would have sold it to Fox in the rst place. It was a missed opportunity for us from the beginning, he said. We jumped on it really quickly, and were thrilled to have it. He said he believes its a better t for NBCs brand of comedy than it ever was for Fox. NBC succeeded this past season with a reboot of Will & Grace, while ABCs revival of Roseanne has been an even more spectacular success. Thats left network executives scour ing old cast lists for shows that can be brought back.SEASON KICKOFFNBC says it will introduce ve new dramas and two new comedies next season. Its the only one of the four biggest broadcast networks with more viewers than last season, although that would not have been the case without the Winter Olympics and Super Bowl. Broadcast televisions schedule week is a whirlwind of star-studded presen tations and parties for advertisers, who will use what they see to decide where to buy billions of dollars worth of com mercial time. It is, however, becoming less signi cant for consumers. Twenty-ve years ago, the decisions announced inu enced the evening habits of millions more people. In those days, 71 percent of televi sions in use during prime time were tuned to either ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox, the Nielsen company said. Today, its roughly half that. During last sea son, 40 percent of the TVs were watch ing those channels, along with other broadcasters like the CW, Univision and Telemundo, Nielsen said.SIMON AND THE ROCKNBC was admittedly treading wa ter in the winter between editions of The Voice, during the last few years, Greenblatt said. Hes taken steps to rectify that and will start a winter edition of the summer hit Americas Got Talent, with judge Simon Cowell on board. The for mat will be a championship tournament of past favorite performers and winners from international editions of the show. Dwayne Johnson also will be a part of The Titan Games, a competition from the producers of American Ninja Warrior. Ellen DeGeneres also will re turn with Ellens Game of Games. The drama Blacklist, said to be on the fence to return, is on the midseason schedule.CHICAGO: WEDNESDAYNBC is taking viewers to the Mid west on Wednesdays, where the dra mas Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. will ll out the networks prime-time schedule. All are products of television veteran Dick Wolfs production studio. Wolfs long-running Law & Order: SVU will launch its 20th season on Thursday nights.CHEERSThe midseason comedy Abby, cen tered around a bar in San Diego, can boast of one thing unique. Its believed to be the rst sitcom to be shot outdoors in front of a live audience.NEW THIS FALLNBCs schedule includes three series that will premiere in the fall. The Monday night drama Manifest is a time-traveler series about passen gers who get off a bumpy plane ight only to nd its ve years later and all of their friends and relatives assumed they were dead.

NEW YORK (AP) The World Health Organization is calling on all nations to rid foods of articial trans fats in the next ve years. The United Nations agency has in the past pushed to exterminate infectious diseases, but now its aiming to erase a hazard linked to chronic illness. WHO Director-General Tedros Ad hanom Ghebreyesus was expected to issue the call to action at a news confer ence in Geneva on Monday. Ofcials think it can be done in ve years because the work is well under way in many countries. Denmark did it 15 years ago, and since then the United States and more than 40 other higherincome countries have been working on getting the heart-clogging additives out of their food supplies. The WHO is pushing middleand lower-income countries to pick up the ght, said Dr. Francesco Branca, direc tor of the WHOs Department of Nutri tion for Health and Development. Articial trans fats are unhealthy substances that are created when hydro gen is added to vegetable oil to make it solid, like in the creation of margarine or shortening. Health experts say they can be replaced with canola oil or other products. There are also naturally occurring trans fats in some meats and dairy products. The WHO recommends that no more than 1 percent of a persons calo ries come from trans fats. Trans fats are a harmful compound that can be removed easily without ma jor cost and without any impact on the quality of the foods, Branca said. Countries will likely have to use regu lation or legislation to get food makers to make the switch, experts said. Dr. Tom Frieden, a former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who worked with WHO ofcials on the call to action, called its move unprecedented. The world is now setting its sights on todays leading killers particularly heart disease, which kills more people than any other cause in almost every country, said Frieden, who is president of a New-York-based philanthropyfunded project called Resolve to Save Lives. The rst trans fatty food to hit the U.S. market was Crisco shortening, which went on sale in 1911. Trans fatty foods became increasingly popular beginning in the 1950s, partly because experts at the time thought they were healthier than butter or lard. Food makers liked articial trans fats because they prolong product shelf life and enhance avor. They used them in such fare as doughnuts, cookies and deep-fried foods. But studies gradually revealed that trans fats wreck cholesterol levels in the blood and drive up the risk of heart disease. Health advocates say trans fats are the most harmful fat in the food supply.

Thursday, May 17, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E13 PARIS (AP) Investigators are following the trail of a 20-year-old Frenchman born in Chechnya who rampaged through a festive Paris neighborhood slashing passers-by with a knife, raising anew the specter of terrorism in France after less than two months of calm. Using a knife, the man identied as Khamzat Azimov killed one person and wounded four others in a festive area near Paris old opera house. Po lice shot him to death as he charged them, witnesses said. Less than 24 hours later, investigators were questioning three people his parents and a friend. The Islamic State group quickly claimed responsibility for the Saturday night attack via its Aamaq news agen cy, saying Azimov was their soldier acting in response to the groups calls for supporters to target members of the U.S.-led anti-IS military coalition, a stock response. Frances military has been active in the coalition since 2014. On Sunday, Aamaq released a post humous video said to show the attacker calling on Muslims in Europe to take action in the land of disbelievers if they cant travel to the crumbling ca liphate in Iraq and Syria, which has been pounded by coalition forces. The man said French citizens should pres sure their government if you want it (attacks) to end. SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadi propaganda, obtained the video, which could not be indepen dently authenticated. The young mans face is covered, except for his eyes, with a black bandanna and the hood of his coat. The video was made outside amid trees and falling rain. French au thorities had no comment. Police detained Azimovs parents in the northern 18th district of Paris and held a friend from Strasbourg in that city on the border with Germany in eastern France, French ofcials said. The friend was detained Sunday after noon. A security ofcial said investiga tors searched the Paris residence of the parents. The ofcial wasnt authorized to speak about the investigation and insisted on not being quoted by name. French media reported that the family had lived in Strasbourg, and it wasnt clear if the suspect moved to Paris with his parents. Counterterrorism investigators want to know if the assailant had help or co-conspirators. The attacker killed a 29-year-old man and wounded four other people, one from Luxembourg, before police fatally shot him. The suspect was on a police watch list for radicalism, a judicial ofcial not authorized to speak publicly about the case told The Associated Press. But he had a clean criminal record and did not know his victims, Interior Minis try spokesman Frederic de Lanouvelle said. Witnesses reported hearing the man shouting Allahu akbar, the Arabic phrase for God is great, during the attack that happened at about 9 p.m. in a lively area near the Opera Garnier. The assailant obtained French nationality in 2010, the Interior Ministry spokesman said. He was born in No vember 1997 in the largely Muslim Russian republic of Chechnya, where extremism has long simmered. Chech ens have been among the numerous foreign ghters in Syria and Iraq, some joining the Islamic State cause early in the ghting. Chechnyas president weighed in after the rampage, perhaps striking a nerve by insisting Sunday that France bears responsibility for the knings. He said Azimov held a Russian passport only until he was 14 years old. I consider it necessary to state that all responsibility for the fact that Khamzat Azimov went on the road of crime lies completely with the authori ties of France, Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov said. He was only born in Chechnya, and his growing up, the formation of his personality, his views and persuasions occurred in French society. France has counted the most foreign ghters in Syria and Iraq of all Euro pean nations, many but not all of North African origin. At home, IS sympathizers have killed more than 200 people in France in recent years 130 in an attack on revelers in 2015. The last attack occurred in March near the touristic southern town of Carcassonne where an extremist with a gun killed three people, two in a supermarket, includ ing an ofcer who exchanged himself for a hostage. Like the Carcassonne killer, the Par is assailant was listed in a nationwide database of thousands of people suspected of links to radicalism, accord ing to the judicial ofcial. Extremists behind multiple attacks in France in recent years have turned out to be on the watch list. The attacker targeted ve people and then ed, according to Paris police and a witness. When police ofcers ar rived minutes later, he threatened them and was shot dead. Several witnesses said the attacker ran directly toward police. Bar patrons and opera-goers described surprise, confusion and panic as the drama unfolded, with people crawling under restaurant tables, and ordered to stay inside while the police operation was underway in the 2nd arrondissement, or district, on Paris Right Bank. I was working in the restaurant and suddenly I heard a woman screaming ... he came and attacked her, recalled Jonathan, a witness working nearby who wouldnt provide his last name. Thats when the panic started. Everyone started screaming and trying to reach our restaurant. ... The attacker just kept walking around with his knife in his bloodied hands. A 23-year-old Brazilian tourist from Washington told AP that she and her aunt saw the fatally wounded victim on the ground and watched the ambu lance arrive and rescue workers try to revive him. They kept doing CPR for what seemed to be a really long time and, in the end, he passed, and they put the sheet over him, Carolina Melo said. She said she and her aunt had been in their hotel, went out to investigate the noisy confusion nearby but retreated after hearing several gunshots. The scene was kind of a mess, she said. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pom peo said the United States would lend a hand in the investigation. CITIZEN TRIBUNE WorldMonday, May 14, 2018 EEE-5 European spy chiefs warn of hybrid threats from Russia, ISBY FRANK JORDANS Associated PressBERLIN (AP) European in telligence chiefs warned Monday that Russia is actively seeking to undermine their democracies by disinformation, cyberattacks and more traditional means of espio nage. The heads of Britain and Ger manys domestic intelligence agencies, as well as the European Union and NATOs top security of cials, pinpointed Moscow as the prime source of hybrid threats to Europe, citing attempts to manipu late elections, steal sensitive data and spark a coup in Montenegro. They also cited the nerve agent attack against a former Russian spy in Britain this year that Britain has blamed on Russia. Our respect for Russias people (...) cannot and must not stop us from calling out and pushing back on the Kremlins agrant breaches of international rules, the head of Britains MI5 spy agency, Andrew Parker, told an intelligence gather ing in Berlin. Parker said the March 4 attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury was swiftly followed by Russian attempts to divert blame. That resulted in at least 30 alternative theories about the attack being spread by Russian authorities and media. Whatever nonsense they conjure up, the case is clear, said Parker. He later told reporters that since allied governments were rst briefed on Russias involvement in the attack by the British govern ment, the case, if anything, has got stronger since then. Germanys domestic intelli gence chief, Hans-Georg Maassen, said his agency, known as BfV, blames Russian authorities for or chestrating a persistent cyberattack aimed at stealing sensitive data so it can be used in future intelligence campaigns, such as what happened with the Democratic National Committee emails leaked during the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign. Maassen said authorities are particularly concerned about the possible funding of extremist groups aiming to divide European societies, and he called for greater awareness of hybrid attacks to counter such threats. Sir Julian King, the EUs secu rity commissioner, warned that social media had turbocharged state actors ability to spread disinformation, citing the recent revelations about Cambridge Analyticas gathering of personal data from Facebook users to help manipulate elections. King warned of future threats posed by sophisticated fake videos that are undiscernible from real footage, calling it an example of a deadly weapon of mass disinfor mation that societies need to nd ways of becoming resilient to. He also said the European Com mission is working with social media companies such as Facebook and Twitter to better inform users about why they are seeing certain posts and who is paying for them, to help protect against disinforma tion campaigns by groups or governments outside the country. NATOs assistant secretary gen eral for intelligence and security, Arndt Freytag von Loringhoven, said the price of launching hybrid attacks needs to increase, citing the expulsion of 150 undeclared spies by Britain and its allies in the wake of the Salisbury attack. Intelligence chiefs also noted the continued threat posed by Islamist extremism and the need to cooper ate closely among European agen cies, despite Britains departure from the EU next year. Parker, whose speech in Berlin was the rst by a serving MI5 di rector outside Britain, said security agencies had thwarted 12 terrorist plots in the U.K. since Parliament was attacked in March 2017. We remain unwaveringly and absolutely committed to working together with European partners, he said, calling for security cooper ation to be enshrined in future treaties between Britain and the EU. Asked about whether disinfor mation played a role in Britains Brexit referendum two years ago, Parker said: Im not aware of any information that suggests that the outcome was determined by any sort of interference.

MADRID (AP) Lawmakers in Catalonia elected a fer vent separatist as the new chief of the restive region Monday, ending a leadership vacuum of more than six months and setting the scene for more confrontations with the Spanish government. Quim Torra, a former corporate lawyer who went on to lead a prominent pro-secession group, vowed to build an in dependent Catalan republic by working under the leadership of his fugitive predecessor, Carles Puigdemont. Puigdemont is in Germany ghting extradition to Spain, where he is wanted for allegedly using public funds and or chestrating an insurrection to get the wealthy northeastern region around Barcelona to break away from Spain. Torra was elected 66-65 in a second round vote after he failed to secure an absolute majority in the 135-strong Cata lan Parliament over the weekend. Four lawmakers with the far-left anti-establishment CUP party abstained. Immediately after his election, Torra, 55, said one of the goals of his new government would be to reinstate Puigde mont as the legitimate president of Catalonia. The Spanish government removed Puigdemont and his Cabinet from of ce after the regional parliament passed an illegal declaration of independence in October. Our president is Carles Puigdemont, and we will be faith ful to the mandate of October...to build an independent state in the form of a republic, Torra told the chamber based in Barcelona. Torra also has promised to create a state council in exile and vowed to establish a constituent assembly to write the constitution for a new Catalan republic. Everybody will win rights with the republic, Torra told fellow lawmakers in a speech before the vote. Nobody will lose rights. The republic is for everybody, no matter what they vote. The Catalan separatist movement has caused the worst po litical and institutional crisis in Spain in decades. Central authorities have been ruling Catalonia directly from Madrid since the regional government led by Puigde mont relied on the results of an outlawed Oct. 1 referendum to declare unilateral independence from Spain. The national government has red dozens of civil servants and closed a network of overseas ofces that sought invest ments in Catalonia but also functioned as diplomatic delega tions to bolster support for independence. The unprecedented Spanish takeover is set to end when Torra is sworn in along with a new Catalan Cabinet. But Spanish authorities have warned that the national government could reassert its authority if the new regional govern ment breaks the law again. Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said he didnt like what he had heard during Mondays investiture debate in the Catalan assembly. He said his judgment on Torras appoint ment will depend on Torras actions. We will bet on understanding and agreement in looking at the future, Rajoy told reporters in Segovia. But I say this, and I mean it: I will make sure that the law, the Spanish Constitution and the rest of the legal system, are obeyed.Catalonias lawmakers pick fervent separatist as new chief
