A local U.S. Army veteran and his family received the surprise of their life on Monday. ey were announced as the recipients of a brand-new mortgage-free home in St. Cloud, donated by PulteGroup through the companys Built to Honor program in partnership with nonprofit Operation Homefront. During the Osceola County Commission meeting on Monday, Army veteran Andrew Inman was recognized and honored for his military service along with his family. He was By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Theres an old saying about death and taxes being lifes only guarantees. Florida summertime brings a pair of its own guarantees humidity and mosquitoes. Aer a week of steady rainfall, the biting bugs are back in full force to usher in another mosquito season in Osceola County. e role of preventing and mitigating the severity of the insects falls to Mosquito Control, a program within the countys Natural Resources Department headed by Director Terry Torrens. Mosquitoes can be pesky, but Torrens said her departments first priority is public health, not nuisance abatement. Mosquitoes tend to be annoying, but the reality is mosquitoes carry disease, Torrens said. We want to protect our citizens and visitors from being exposed to any possible mosquitoborne viruses. But the insects, which thrive in Central Floridas humid, wet climate, far outnumber Torrens 12-person sta at Mosquito Control. For this reason, Torrens emphasized how important it is for residents to do their part. Many times when we get called to a home that has reported issues, it turns out they are breeding their own mosquitoes without even realizing it, she said. Mosquito larva grows in stagnate water. Torrens recommended residents turn over, cover, or throw out items that hold water on their property, such as tires, buckets, planters, toys, pools, tarps, owerpots, or trash containers once a week. When it comes to items such as birdbaths and pet food bowls, residents should change the water on a regular basis as well. Preventing the birth of mosquitoes is vital to keeping the pest population low. Once conditions get warm and rainy though, the bugs always appear. ats when the county relies on Mosquito Control to use methods like landbased and aerial fogging to help mitigate the problem. Weather this year is drier than 2017, Torrens noted, which has kept the bugs at bay longer than usual. Since heavy rain dominated the ings to do, local activities, theme parks, state parks and other adventures .Page 9.New safety measures arise after latest shooting By Rachel Christian Staff Writer New school safety measures in Central Florida are rolling out aer a gunman opened re at Santa Fe High School in Texas early Friday morning, killing eight students and two teachers. Ten others were wounded. Santa Fe was at least the 20th incident in 2018 in which someone was injured with a rearm on the campus of a U.S. school. e slaying comes three months after an active shooter killed 17 people at a South Florida high school, sparking student-led protests and rallies nationwide. The suspect in Texas was identied as Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, who was taken into custody by authorities. In response to the shooting in Texas, officials in Polk and Seminole counties announced that students will be prohibited from bringing backpacks to school. Ocials havent said yet whether the backpack ban will extend into next school year. In Osceola County, security measures during the nal days of class were up to the discretion of the school, according to District Public Information Ocer Dana Schafer. As authorities in Texas grapple with the countrys most recent mass shooting, counties across Florida are preparing to receive millions of state dollars meant to improve school security measures. The funds are part of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, a $400 million measure signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott two months ago following the shooting in Parkland. The law sets aside over $98 million in grants to help districts improve the hardening and physical security of school buildings. Schafer said a group of community leaders would meet to determine the best way to use the school hardening funds it receives later this year.

The security risk assessments will determine needs based on available funding, she said. The new law also sets aside more than $69 million to fund the mental health assistance allocation. e funds are meant to assist school districts in establishing or expanding school-based mental health care, which can include hiring more psychiatrists and social workers. The mental health allocation is part of next years budget and will be released upon approval of a district plan filed with the Florida Department of Education. Schafer said the district doesnt have any dollars in hand at the moment from this allocation. e new law puts several additional mandates on school districts across the state, according to a press release from the Florida Senate. Those mandates include: Each district school board and school district superintendent must cooperate with law enforcement agencies to assign one or more safeschool officers at each school facility. The safeschool ocer requirement can be satisfied by appointing any combination school resources officer, school safety officers, or school guardians. Requires each district school board to designate a district school safety specialist to serve as the districts primary point of public contact for public school safety functions. Requires each school district to designate school safety specialists and a threat assessment team at each school, and requires the team to operate under the district school safety specialists direction. Requires the DOE to contract for the development of a Florida Safe Schools Assessment Tool, which will assist school districts in conducting security assessments to identify threats and vulnerabilities. The law also requires the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to procure a mobile app that would allow students and the community to relay information anonymously concerning unsafe, dangerous threats.

Fogging by the county is conducted at night throughout the summer using methods and chemicals that are highly regulated by several agencies including the Environmental Protection Agency and the Florida Department of Agriculture. If mosquito populations get too high, the county also contracts with an aerial spraying service that can treat swamps and other high-population zones. When it comes to mosquito season in Florida, Torrens said residents dont need to be scared, just use common sense precautions. Applying effective bug repellent that contain active ingredients like DEET should be the new normal. We put sunblock on when we know were going to be outside, so its important to make mosquito repellent part of the routine as well, Torrens said. Other measures, including regularly reapplying repellent and wearing long sleeves, can also cut down on mosquito bites and the spread of disease. Torrens said Mosquito Control receives about $40,000 a year in funding from the state agriculture department. Two years ago, the state awarded a much larger sum to help local counties make upgrades in the wake of Zika virus outbreaks in South America. The extra funding stopped once Zika was no longer classied as an emergency by the state, but Torrens said that additional money helped make much-needed upgrades to equipment. It really did help out smaller programs like mine where I was able to invest in a whole bunch of additional equipment and update the stuff we were running, she said.

Page 4 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, May 24, 2018 To the Editor: On May 14, I was surprised to see that a Kissimmee resident had asked City Manager Mike Steigerwald to add an item to the May 15 Kissimmee City Commission meeting agenda. The item was then marked as item .A. Kissimmee City Commission term limits. What this resident was asking for was for the elimination of term limits for the mayor. If you are in any way involved in the local politics of the city of Kissimmee youll know that this was tried before to a larger extent. In December of 2017, one of our commissioners brought up for discussion the ending of term limits for the entire commission. If you sat at that meeting, you would have heard residents lambast the idea, myself; not as harsh as others but, on the side of continuing the current term limits. During this same meeting, a resident of Celebration; the county Democratic chair, also spoke. She went one step further asking that non-partisan races be eliminated as well. As many of you may know the county is made up of almost double the number of Democrats than Republicans, and out of the 209,514 registered voters within the county, only 72,603 are neither. With these numbers, allowing term limits and non-partisan races to end; even for just the mayor, could be detrimental to voters and could disenfranchise many. Being that we are a closed primary state this could mean only one thing. at the plans of those that would like to end term limits are as follows: End term limits, end non-partisan race, then in races where all candidates are of a single party entering a shill candidate to run non-partisan and closing o the entire election to the all those who are not part of their party. is is a very unethical and deceitful thing to do and should not be allowed. Any commissioner that wished to do something like this should be placed under a microscope once elections come along. Marcos Diego Marrero Chair of the Libertarian Party of Osceola County Appropriate actions can save livesTo the Editor: Overdoses are happening everywhere, all over the country. In our current society, the streets are lled to the brim with ultra-strong heroin thats often mixed with fentanyl and a multitude of its analogues, making life saving eorts, like Narcan, futile when trying to reverse an overdose. e thing is, overdoses dont just happen in the bathroom or bedroom at home. In fact, many people who overdose do so in public areas. Overdoses can happen in the grocery store, in the car, at a shopping mall just about anywhere. Overdoses happen when a person has taken more opiates (or opioids) than their body can handle. They can happen absolutely anywhere and its really important for everyone to know the symptoms of an overdose because then, the appropriate actions can be taken to save a persons life.

The family will move into the home in the fall, just in time for the holidays. It is a privilege for Pulte employees, along with our trade partners and suppliers, to be able to give back to our nations veterans in a meaningful way, said Clint Ball, president of the North Florida division. Andrew Inman, his wife and daughters are so deserving of this new home. We look forward to working with the Inmans as we build this home to meet their familys needs and help them begin to create wonderful new memories in this next chapter of their lives. As a young child, Inman did not have a stable home environment. His family constantly moved between Oregon, Washington and Nevada. Now, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, he worried that his family would not have a home. Inman and his wife, Erin, have been married for 13 years and have two daughters. He served nine years in the military. He enlisted in the Marines in 1997 and served for five years until 2002. One year later, he enlisted in the Army and served two tours to Iraq, where he served as a specialist. In 2006, Andrew was honorably discharged. Owning a home will be a start of a legacy for me, said Inman. Its also going to provide nancial stability. Our main goal was to be homeowners. We wanted a home to call our own and for our children to grow up in, go to college, and then come back and not have to worry about struggling or moving to another place. We are grateful to Operation Homefront and PulteGroup for this wonderful opportunity it will be emotional and lifechanging. e Inman family was accepted into Operation Homefronts Homes on the Homefront program, which provides veterans and their families the opportunity to move into a home and work directly with housing caseworkers and nancial counselors to prepare for home ownership. Upon successful graduation from the program, the family will receive the deed to the home. We are extremely grateful to PulteGroup and their Built to Honor program for supporting our veterans and military families with mortgagefree homes, said Brig. Gen. (ret.) Robert omas, chief operating officer of Operation Homefront. We are excited to provide the Inman family a home that will create life-changing financial stability, and relief from the burden of a decades long mortgage. At Operation Homefront, we are changing lives by partnering with like-minded individuals, companies, and other organizations to accomplish our mission of building strong, stable, and secure military families so that they can thrive not struggle to get by in the communities they have worked so hard to protect.

Page 6 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, May 24, 2018 By J. Daniel Pearson For the News-Gazette Some 90 minutes before kicko of Poincianas spring football game Friday, uncommon excitement and enthusiasm abounded. Players were running and laughing between drill stations, yelling encouragement on every play. When a ball hit the ground, every player in the drill was running to get to it rst. Even parents seemed excited, proudly recording the warmups on their iPhones. It was a scene that has not been a common occurrence at a school that has struggled on the gridiron for as long as most people can remember. What has changed at the school that has just won 12 games in the last 10 years and hasnt had a winning season in almost two decades? For starters, a new head coach in Phillip Prior, the man responsible for the attitude change. Prior, who arrived in Kissimmee aer serving as an assistant head coach at Leon and Chiles High School in Tallahassee, has been a catalyst in changing the attitudes of the players, sta and parents. Although Poinciana lost its spring game to Discovery, 14-3, the progress the Eagles are making is observable. Weve told our kids from day one, that our past is our past and it has absolutely nothing to do with our future and what we are going to accomplish here, Prior said. I told them that our hard work, the sacrices we are willing to make, and our willingness to do things the right way, every day, is what is going to determine our future. Our kids have done a great job of buying into that but we all know that we have a lot of work to do. Prior said his goal is to establish a pro style, run-first offense that will rely on being physical. Defensively, he said he was pleased to discover he had some size on his rst team and that size will t into the physical nature of the defense he wants to play. Defense is just about attitude and eort we call it the juice, he said. We want our kids to play with the juice on every play and they have really embraced the concept. Rising senior Connor Beeken rushed for 112 yards on 15 carries and Jonathan Sanchez added 42 yards on six carries. Although QB Kolton Richards only completed three of 13 passes for 42 yards and three interceptions, he was victimized by a half dozen drops, something Prior noted will be xed as the players become more familiar with the scheme. Defensively, the Eagles forced a turnover and had made more than a dozen tackles behind the line of scrimmage. All 14 points allowed were o oensive turnovers. Overall, Ive been real happy with our first spring, Prior said. Now we need to continue it during our summer workouts and come into camp with the same positive attitude. Liberty 28, Gateway 14 the other new coaching tenure in the county, where Brandon Pennington debuted with the Chargers, was met with a win. Seeing newly-installed oensive and defensive schemes for the rst time against a dierent opponent, Pennington said he was pretty happy with what we saw. We struggled a little oensively in the rst half, and missed some opportunities, but thats a tribute to Gateways defense. Quarterback Jaelen Ray, who threw for over 2,000 yards last year and set school records, tossed a pair of touchdown passes to LaRandy Swint, osetting two interceptions, and scored on another on a touchdown run set up by a big Swint catch. Swint also added an interception on defense. Jaelen did a really good job making reads and doing what he was supposed to do, Pennington said. He made some mistakes that are common in May, which we have the summer to fix. Leading 8-6 coming out of halime, the Chargers put together a 13-play drive that ended with a two-yard Donovan Johnson run.

Liberty doubles up Gateway as Ray, Swint star, PHS falls but remains optimistic success will come By J. Daniel Pearson For the News-Gazette It takes a lot to rattle Osceola head football Coach Doug Nichols. So when his team managed only 104 yards of total oense, failed to score a single point, had two punts travel a combined total of seven yards and committed two turnovers in ursday nights scoreless spring game tie against Bishop Moore, Nichols was anything but upset. Its a spring game so Im not worried about our offense or the result in the least, Nichols said. We lost a lot of great playmakers off of last seasons team and we knew our offense was going to be a work in progress. Add the sloppy weather conditions and the fact we were playing a pretty good team and things like this are going to happen. Nichols in fact praised the work of his defense, which held the Hornets to just 89 yards of total oense, forced two turnovers of their own, and turned back the only two scoring threats of the entire game. I could not be happier with the way we played on defense, the veteran coach said. I really wasnt expecting that good of an eort given we were missing four down linemen and a starting safety. Osceolas defense was dominating all night, giving up just 46 yards on 26 carries (1.8 yards per carry) and allowing just 43 yards through the air. Still, the young Kowboy oense could not capitalize. Osceola gained just 104 yards on the night, all on the ground. DeWayne McGee led all ball carriers with 31 yards on seven carries, while Tayquan Pinellas added 21 yards on six carries, as both teams struggled to move the ball and the entire game was played mostly between the 30-yard lines. With 2:24 remaining in the game, the Hornets recovered a bad punt snap at the Osceola 11 yard line. But the Kowboys defense held and a 25-yard Bishop Moore eld goal attempt sailed wide le to preserve the 0-0 tie. e weather had a lot to do with the kicking game mistakes, Nichols said. Its still is an area we will address. e Kowboys, who have gone 80-12 under Nichols that last seven years, are coming o an undefeated regular season and a 10-1 mark overall. But the Kowboys lost several outstanding oensive playmakers to graduation, including quarterback Braxton Jones, and running backs Danas Pinellas, Jakobe omas and Malcolm Davidson. Obviously we have a lot of work to do on oense, Nichols added. But we have our oensive line mostly in tact from a year ago and we have some talented young players coming up. We will use tonight as a lesson, work hard this summer and come back in August ready to go to work. Bulldogs roughed up: St. Cloud running back and slot receiver Seth Johnson was one of the few bright spots in a 40-12 loss to Lake Minneola moved to Monday due to the weather. Our receivers looked good, but they have a good team that came out and punched us in the mouth and we didnt respond like Id hoped, Bulldogs Coach Bryan Smart said. We didnt get a lot of oensive snaps because the defense was out there a lot. We have a lot of work to do during the summer, luckily we dont play a meaningful game until the end of August (the 31st, against Osceola).NEWS-GAZETTE PHOTO/MARTIN MADDOCKPoinciana quarterback Kolton Richards fires a pass in Thursdays 14-3 spring game loss to Discovery.

In my first sit-down with Mr. Overton, he asked me to put together a list for him of things to do in Kissimmee. A newcomers guide, or a Kissimmee Bucket List, if you will. If youve lived in Kissimmee for awhile, you probably have most of these items checked o. Or maybe youre like me, and you dont. Either way, here are just ve of the many things you should do in Kissimmee. Visit Gatorland e order of this list is very much at random, but Gatorland is definitely at the top of my personal list of recommendations. (Do you even live in Florida if you havent seen thousands of gators? And all in one place?) Gatorland is home to more than 2,000 alligators, plus crocodiles, wild cats, birds, tortoises, snakes and critters. You can take a ride on the Screamin Gator Zip Line over a pit of gators, check out the Gator Jumparoo or Gator Wrestling shows, experience up-close encounters with some of the most dangerous snakes around the globe, and much more. You can even have a professional photo taken of yourself with a snake around your neck while holding a baby alligator. Whats more Florida than that? Stop by Old Town This may seem like a given to you natives, but for the newcomers out there Old Town is one of Kissimmees top places to visit. Old Town is a recreation of a classic Florida town, with 18 acres of treelined brick streets, filled with shops and restaurants. Check out the As Seen on TV store, or tour the haunted house. Grab a bite to eat or drink, or take a ride on Fun Spots Sling Shot or SkyCoaster. Fun Spot is located next door to Old Town, as Central Floridas most visited spot for midway rides and games. Shop at Orange World You know that giant orange out on U.S. Highway 192? ats Orange World. It was purchased by a family in 1984 and was created as an iconic local landmark and named the Worlds Largest Orange. e shop has everything orange, plus Florida honey, citrus candies, jellies, all-Florida salt scrubs, Orange Blossom perfumes, gator heads and more. It even oers some of the freshest fruits in Central Florida. You can visit Orange Worlds website (www.OrangeWorld192.com) to see a fruit season calendar, showing which fruits are available throughout the year. e fruits are grown, packed and shipped from the Indian River Region of Florida. e soil and distinct weather of the region produces high-quality citrus that is thin skinned, high in sugar content, and is of a quality that is recognized around the world. And we are lucky enough to be able to purchase it right here in Kissimmee. Bike through Celebration I grew up in Celebration, so I can speak rst-hand on this one. Celebration is a beautiful place to get some fresh air and spend a day outdoors. e Celebration Bike Rental is located near the towns Bohemian Hotel, right in Town Center. e rental shop oers surrey bikes of all kinds to explore the beauty of the biking paths and trails. And with each rental, riders receive a community map. Stop for a quick bite to eat Upper Crust Pizza Cafe, or grab a drink and an appetizer at Celebration Town Tavern. Watch the rodeo Last but certainly not least, celebrate Osceola Countys heritage live at the Silver Spurs Rodeo. e Silver Spurs Rodeo is the largest rodeo east of the Mississippi, and has been a tradition in Kissimmee since 1944. Now is your chance to check this o your Kissimmee Bucket List, as the Silver Spurs Rodeo is conveniently happening next weekend, June 1-2.

Thursday, May 24, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 9 May 2018 A Special Supplement to Summertime Fun...things to do, local activities, theme parks, state parks, and other nearby adventuresBy Charlie Reed For the News-GazetteWh ats summer win Central Florida without the pool? For those who dont have one in their backyard, worry not! Osceola Countys four public swimming pools offer an affordable way to splash around in the sun and keep kids active during summer break. The facilities have snack bars, lockers and bathrooms with showers and changing areas. You can bring your own lunch, snacks and drinks but no glass containers (including bottles) or alcohol. Going to the pool is a right of passage for kids of all ages during the summer. But remember, safety comes first. Accidental drownings are the leading cause of death for children ages 1-4 and the second leading cause for children under 14, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The Osceola County YMCA, the Bob Makinson Aquatic Center, both in Kissimmee, the Chris Lyle Aquatic Center in St. Cloud and Mary Jane Arrington Gym and Aquatic Center in Poinciana offer swimming lessons for children and toddlers throughout the summer. The St. Cloud pool is one of the thousands of public pools and waterparks participating in the U.S. and abroad participating in The Worlds Largest Swimming Lesson on Thursday, June 21. The event is free and is open to children and adults. Started by the World Waterpark Association in 2010, the awareness campaign is focused on teaching children to swim to prevent drowning. The risk of drowning can be reduced by more than 80 percent if kids participate in formal swimming lessons between the ages of 1-4. Still, according to an American Red Cross survey in 2014, more than half of Americans either cant swim or lack basic swimming skills. The event is a great way to help kids help themselves and perhaps break a world record. The Worlds Largest Swimming Lesson set the Guinness World Record for the largest simultaneous swimming lesson conducted at multiple venues in 2014 w ith 36,564 participants in 22 countries.

Osceola County residents have access to numerous beaches and lakes, as well as many residential swimming pools. According to www.FloridaHealth.gov, Florida leads the country in drowning deaths of children ages 1 to 4 years. As parents and caretakers, we have to take measures to prevent these senseless deaths. There are safety precautions that can be taken to help keep your children, family members and friends safe. Here are a few tips that can be employed to assist with water safety: safety fence. your child swims with a flotation device such as a life jacket. they play in water. watching your child. During large family gatherings or a busy day at the beach, children can quickly get out of sight. Always keep an eye on your child yourself or designate someone to watch your child. home pool area works to keep unwanted visitors from using your pool without your permission. As personal injury attorneys, theres nothing worse than meeting with parents who have lost their child due to drowning. No one understands this feeling more than Arkeisha Reese, who on June 16, 2006, lost her son, Kareem, to a drowning accident during a field trip at a country club. Kareem, who had just turned 5, was left unattended by the country club staff. While attempts were made to resuscitate Kareem, doctors were unable to save his life. Reese is the president and founder of Team Kareem a nonprofit organization that focuses on raising awareness to the importance of drowning prevention and water safety education.

Page 14 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, May 24, 2018 When deciding where to go this summer, make sure you put Gatorland at the very top of your to-do list. This true jewel of Central Florida is located right off South Orange Blossom Trail, greeting guests with its iconic snap-worthy alligators mouth. But youll quickly find there is so much more to this classic Florida park than meets the eye. With over 2000 alligators inside the park, Gatorland lives up to its title of alligator capital of the world. But the wildlife doesnt end there. Gatorland has everything from crocodiles, snakes and Florida panthers to tropical birds, goats and flamingos. There is no better place to learn about and interact with Floridas most well known animals. Gatorland gives you the chance to get up close and personal with some of the worlds rarest alligators. Visit the White Gator Swamp to view Pearl, the famous albino alligator as well as three of the worlds 14 white Leucistic alligators. Visitors can stop by the new Baby Gator Marsh to welcome over 60 of this years newest, smallest additions to Gatorland. There are ample opportunities to feed the animals at Gatorland. You can toss turkey dogs to hungry gators and feed goats out of the palm of your hand at the petting zoo. Visitors can also feed Gatorlands birds in the Very Merry Aviary. We offer the most affordable family fun in Central Florida for locals and tourists alike, said Gatorland president and CEO Mark McHugh. We literally have something for everyone in the family from grandparents and parents, to teenagers and toddlers. Gatorland certainly has something for everyone, especially the thrill seekers. Rookie Wrestling invites you to step into their wrestling arena to sit on top of one of Gatorlands wrestling gators. The Adventure Hour lets visitors safely onto the shores of the Alligator Breeding Marsh to feed huge alligators that are mere feet away plus the opportunity to pose for a picture next to the alligators. And for the particularly brave, the Screamin Gator Zipline takes you soaring over lakes filled with alligators. The Screamin Gator Zipline is ranked among the top 10 zip lines in America and is complete with seven towers, a swinging bridge and over 3,000 feet of zip line. To ensure that this thrill of a lifetime accessible for everyone, Gatorland also has the Gator Gauntlet Zipline, the only handicap accessible zip line in the country. When you want to get off your feet, take a tour through Gatorland on the Gatorland Express Train or hang on for dear life in the wild new Stompin Gator Off Road Adventure, an entertaining, joke fueled off-roading ride on a massive swamp buggy. Visitors can reconnect with nature by taking a calming stroll through the Swamp Walk. Wander around the docks above the Alligator Breeding Marsh to catch a glimpse of the active bird life and couple hundred alligators, including Buddy, the parks largest alligator coming in at 13-feet, 8 inches and weighing more than 1,200 pounds. There are plenty of shows throughout the day powered by Gatorlands exceptionally friendly and funny staff. The Gator Jumparoo Show, Gator Wrestlin and Up Close Encounters are all exciting, engaging and educational animal encounters the whole family will enjoy. Gatorland offers a variety of food options available at the snack bar and Pearls Good Eats. Options include hot dogs, hamburgers, pulled pork sandwiches, and their world famous fried gator nuggets. There are plenty of special packages available to those looking to enhance their Gatorland experience. Gatorland is renowned for their dedication to animal education and conservation.

This special program runs until June 10. From our new Stompin Gator Off Road Adventure and popular Screamin Gator Zip Line to our famous white gators, alligator breeding marsh, Gator Jumparoo and Gator Wrestlin shows, you cant see more and do more in a day or half day anywhere else, said McHugh. Before you leave with lots of special memories, youll learn about our animals, about alligator safety and so much more. Gatorland offers an annual half-off Florida Residents special and free parking.

Gatorland.com or call 407-855-5496.By Ken JacksonSports EditorA couple years ago, Forbes Magazine listed Osceola County the 10th fastest growing county in the country. New residential and commercial properties rise out of the ground seemingly every day, but theres a place in the county where that growth is neither seen nor heard. Forever Florida, about 45 minutes from downtown Kissimmee, 20 minutes from Harmony and minutes south of Holopaw on U.S. Highway 441, shares untouched Florida terrain with its visitors to experience nature like never before, or at least in a way that those who have moved to the area recently never have. The out-of-the-way attraction offers ziplining, horseback riding and camping adventures through the wild on a beautiful nature conservancy and the chance to encounter native Florida wildlife and untouched scenery. Its mission is to maintain a least a small piece of Osceola County as the way it once was before urban sprawl caused the city to come out and meet places like Forever Florida. Our mission is to preserve and protect the fragile ecosystems of Floridas native wilderness, to provide a permanent protective habitat for wildlife, to maintain the historical ranching operation and to educate the public about the importance of conservation and the preservation of our unique ranching heritage, its mission statement reads on its website (www.foreverflorida.com). The buzz word here is adventure. Take the 7-Zip Adventure, for instance. Is there a better word to describe zipping through native palms, pines and oaks, reaching heights of 78 feet, along a system of seven high-tension cables and three sky-bridges, accompanied by trained guides? The only way to one-up that is with the Night Flight Adventure; take the same experience and put it in darkness under a natural, moonlit sky when wildlife is active and the stars dominate thanks to reduced urban lighting that drowns them out in town. Forever Florida also features what it calls the only zip line roller coaster in the United States, sending riders through the treetops at speeds up to 20 mph along a 1,000-foot rigid zip-rail system, and the Peregrine Plunge, essentially drag racing on a zip line along parallel cables. If you prefer to stay on the ground, Forever Florida offers horseback adventures from the tamer guided trail rides to those that combine camping, cattle driving and the Cowboy For A Day experience, which groups group shadow the ranchs foreman through an anything but typical day on Crescent J Ranch, complete with cowboy hat and a lunch fit for a cowhand. The Trail Buggy Adventure takes visitors deep into the wild in a unique Trail Buggy to learn about historic breeds of cattle and horses still used and raised today by ranchers in the eastern and southern parts of Osceola County. Other tours also couple visits to the nearby Central Florida Animal Reserve (CFAR) to see the big cats lions, tigers, cougars and leopards up close. For those who dont want to leave at sundown, the adventure can continue overnight camping adventures range from primitive camping to the semi-luxury of climate-controlled cabins. Forever Florida is also home of Camp Illaha, a co-ed sleep-away horseback and adventure camp for kids 9-16 years old. Week-long sessions run in June and July and for starting at $599 per week, children get to experience the old-time Florida experience and learn life lessons, such as how to be responsible, solve problems, get along with others, learn new skills and make new friends. Forever Florida also features the Charolais Caf, serving an assortment of sandwiches, salads, and burgers made with 100 percent grass-fed beef raised on site at the Crescent J Ranch. According to the website, grass-fed beef is healthier, lower in fat, lower in calories, much higher in beneficial fats like heart healthy omega3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid or CLA, identified in scientific studies to reduce cancer risk. Based on supply, cuts of those steaks, and other meats, are available for purchase from $13-32 per pound for stakes and $4-$8 per pound of other cuts. The Crescent J Ranch is home to Cracker cattle, direct descendants of what Ponce de Leon and his men left behind when they fled from an Indian attack sometime around 1521. For hours of operation, adventure pricing and other information, go to the website or call 407-957-9794.

A RMANDORAMIREZ Cle rkoftheCircuitCourt,OsceolaCounty,Florida By:BB,DEPUTYCLERK May10,17,24,31,2018 Final Notice and Public Explanation of a Proposed Activity in 100-Year Floodplain To: All interested Government Agencies, Groups and Individuals This is to give notice that HUD under Part 50 has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Orders 11988, in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management. The activity is pursuing funding under Multi-Family Housing Program Section 221(d)(4). The subject property, The Proposed Hamilton at Lakeside, is located at the southwest corner of North John Young Parkway and Bermuda Lakes Lane in Kissimmee, Osceola County, Florida and consists of approximately 6.06 acres of undeveloped and wooded land and a drainage ditch on the eastern property boundary. The subject property is identied as tax parcel number: 16-25-29-00U0-0016-0000. The subject property is the proposed location of a two (2) building, 108unit multi-family apartment complex with an amenity building, maintenance building, and a dog park. According to the Osceola County, Florida and Incorporated Areas Flood Insurance Study dated June 18, 2013 accessed at http://fris.nc.gov/fris_hardles/FL/FIS/12097CV000A.pdf the Base Flood Elevation (BFE) in the area of the subject property is 66.2 feet NAVD88 (67.10 feet NGVD29). Per HUD guidelines, the elevation of occupied space must be at least one (1) foot above the BFE (in this case, 67.2 feet NAVD88). Therefore, in order to prevent impacts to lives and property, the proposed residential structures and amenity building will be developed above the BFE, with the rst-oor elevations elevated greater than one (1) foot above the BFE, at 67.66 feet NAVD88 (68.6 feet NGVD29). Only parking, sidewalks, and the proposed maintenance building are located below the BFE. The proposed maintenance building, a non-residential structure, will have a lowest adjacent grade below the BFE at 65.02 feet NAVD 88 (65.96 feet NGVD 29). However, the structure will be oodproofed to at least 1-foot above the BFE in order to comply with HUD Guidelines and protect all insurable property. The maintenance building will have a concrete stem wall that has emergency drains to prevent ooding of this structure. Whenever construction is proposed within a oodplain, the loss of oodplain storage is a potential impact. Floodplains provide storage of water until downstream outfalls recede to a level that will allow the stored water to discharge from the site. HUD has considered the following alternatives and mitigation measures to be taken to minimize adverse impacts and to restore and preserve natural and benecial values: (i) The subject property is the ideal location for the proposed development. The subject property is of adequate size and allows sufcient density yield to provide the 108 apartments needed to make the project economically feasible. In addition, the property is properly zoned for the proposed development. The proposed development will be located along the Kissimmee Trail walkway, which will be benecial to the residential component. The subject property is located along a heavily travelled roadway, with an overhead crosswalk, which has average/good exposure with added privacy which is often seen as a benet to tenants. In addition, the subject property has access to public transportation as the LYNX bus route is immediately adjacent to the property. The area has sufcient supporting commercial/medical/educational developments nearby. Finally, a market study conducted by Colliers International indicated the property is located in an area that is projected to experience signicant population growth. As such, demand for housing in Osceola County is expected to increase signicantly. Overall, the subject property is considered an ideal location for the proposed development in terms of its location, exposure, and access to public transportation, employment, education, and shopping centers. These characteristics provide supporting uses for the subject property making it desirable for multifamily development. (ii) Alternatives were investigated for the proposed development that included the no action alternative. The proposed multi-family development is needed to address the growing demand for housing in this area and would increase the real estate tax base. Kissimmee is a beneciary of economic growth occurring in a variety of industries. The Orlando metro economy is ourishing. It is outperforming all other Florida metros in terms of job creation. While tourism continues to drive most of the growth, diversication into other sectors is proving benecial for wage growth, specically growth in the professional and business services sector. A businessfriendly environment combined with ongoing transportation and infrastructure improvements, moderate costs of living and no state income taxes, the Orlando market is expected to continue to expand. All the new jobs and the companies will generate demand for housing and will be the sustaining force for economic growth in the future. In addition, the proposed development is compatible with HUDs mission to provide safe and attractive housing options for people of all income levels. The no-action alternative would not achieve any of these benets and thus, would not serve the same purpose. (iii) To comply with the Executive Order, the Sponsor has entered into consultation with registered engineers who have prepared development plans that minimize the effects of the impacts to the oodplains located on the subject property. Off-site ll will be brought to the subject property in order to appropriately grade the site to raise the lowest adjacent grade of proposed subject property residential structures and amenity building to one (1) foot above the base ood elevation in order to mitigate the potential for adverse impacts to lives and property. In addition, the proposed maintenance building will be oodproofed in accordance with FEMA and HUD Guidelines. The subject property will carry ood insurance under the National Flood Insurance Program for any building during the construction period until a LOMR-F is obtained. Finally, all leases/ contracts will contain an acknowledgement signed by the tenants indicating that they have been advised that the site is located in a oodplain and that ood insurance is available for their personal property. In order to prevent a loss of available water storage capacity, the proposed development was designed to compensate for the water storage at a cup for cup ratio. While portions of the proposed project site will be raised above Base Flood Elevation (BFE), other portions will be lowered to provide for the storage of ood waters within the proposed detention pond, open spaces, and parking lots. Both the pre-development oodplain storage available to the site and the post-development oodplain storage available to the site were calculated during the design and permitting of improvements. In the pre-development conditions, the site provides 8.472 AC-FT of storage volume below the BFE of 67.10 feet NGVD29. Per the proposed design, the postdevelopment site condition provides 8.594 AC-FT of storage volume below the BFE of 67.10 feet NAGVD29. This design ensures that there will be no net loss of water storage at the subject property and, therefore, there will not be any adverse impacts to the adjacent properties. The detention pond will also provide water quality treatment and attenuation for the proposed development prior to discharging into the ditch located to the west of the subject property. HUD has reevaluated the alternatives to building in the oodplain and has determined that it has no practicable alternative. Environmental les that document compliance with steps 3 through 6 of Executive Order 11988 are available for public inspection, review and copying upon request at the times and location delineated in the last paragraph of this notice for receipt of comments. There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in oodplains and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information and request for public comment about oodplains can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks and impacts associated with the occupancy and modication of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will consider actions taking place in oodplains, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk. Written comments must be received by HUD at the following address no later than 7 days from the date of this notice. Comments should be addressed to Ms. Angela Vassey, Senior Review Appraiser with HUD, 400 W. Bay Street, Suite 1015, Jacksonville, FL 32202. A full description of the project may also be reviewed from 8:00 a.m. 4:30 p.m. at the address listed above.

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 23, 2018 EEE-1 www.citizentribune.comTribune Expanded Electronic Edition BY ELIZABETH KARMEL Associated PressIt's ofcially barbecue rib season, and I couldn't be more excited. I have made them three times in the last week and I am planning on making them for a party this weekend. I might be a little rib ob sessed_it is an occupational haz ard of barbecuing for a living. But I don't know many people who can turn down a bone or two or three. My rib-awakening happened at the world's largest barbecue contest Memphis in May. All it took was that rst bite of a grill-smoked rib for me to realize that real barbecued ribs very rarely come out of a restaurant kitchen. They are usually much better made and enjoyed in your own backyard. There is nothing like homemade ribs. And, once you get over the intimidation factor, you realize that they don't take near ly as long to cook as barbecue myth has it, and they are also very easy to prepare. The most popular ribs to cook are back ribs, but spareribs and St-Louis style ribs are becom ing more and more popular. This week, I cooked a slab of back ribs, a slab of spare ribs, and a slab of St. Louis to see which ones I liked better. Not surpris ingly, they were all good. I rediscovered that it's important to look at the ribs in the store and chose them based on the way they look more than the cut. They should be plump, heavy for their size and have some visible fat. The fat will render out during the cooking time, leaving avor and help create a nice crust on the ribs. These days pork can be so lean that you don't see a lot of fat, even on the ribs. In case you aren't familiar with the difference between the three cuts, here is a primer: Back ribs are cut from high up on the rib near the spinal column. Back ribs are meaty, leaner than spareribs and very avorful_this is the area of the pig that "produces" the tender loin. Back ribs are usually sold in either full slabs (13-ribs). But you may nd them in half slabs (7-ribs) since they are the most expensive cut of rib, some stores cut the rack in half so the sin gle item appears less expensive. When they come from a pig that is less than a year old, they are referred to as "baby" back ribs. True baby back ribs generally weigh around 1 to 1 1/2 pounds each which makes them dif cult to cook on the grill because they have so little meat on their bones. Spareribs are cut from the belly or side of the pig. Spare ribs are longer and fattier than back ribs. While they have less meat, many parts of the country prefer them and they are also a bargain. I paid about $2.50 a pound for a full slab of spareribs and the back ribs were nearly $10 a pound. The St-Louis cut is a spare rib trimmed to remove the ap of meat on the underside of the breast bone and squared off to more easily t on the grill. The St. Louis-style cut is becoming more popular with restaurants, backyard barbecuers and the barbecue circuit. Once you decide on which rib to buy, there are a few things to remember when purchasing your meat. Number one: Make sure that each slab weighs close to 2 pounds each, and that the ribs have a nice layer of meat cover ing the bone. Slabs of ribs that are factory-cut often have "bone shine" or areas of the rack where the blade hit the bone and cut off all the meat exposing the bone. And, it goes without saying that you need to buy the best quality, freshest product avail able. This is especially true with meat and there is a wide range of product in the marketplace. Plan on purchasing half a rack per person, more if you are serv ing big eaters. I always round up one rack, for example, if I am serving 7-8 people, I buy 5 racks of ribs. After taking the time to make the ribs, you don't want to run out. If you have a local butcher who cuts the meat, frequent his or her shop. He'll give you tips on cooking, can cut meat to or der, and can special order meat as well. If you don't have a local butch er, go to a grocery store that has high trafc and keeps the meat case rotated with fresh product every day. Beyond that, be sure to look at the expiration date on the label and give your purchas es the old-fashioned smell test. If it smells "off" or a little funny, then it is probably old. I prefer buying ribs that are cryovac-ed as they are generally the freshest choice. The next decision that you have to make is whether or not to remove the silver skin. Along the back (non-meaty) side of a slab of ribs there is a smooth cover ing or membrane that holds the ribs together. It is often referred to as the silver skin. Some peo ple recommend removing it but it is purely optional whether you take it off or not. If you leave it on, it is a good indicator of when the ribs are done because it lifts away from the meat when the meat is cooked. It is very crispy when done and looks a little like parchment paper and is slightly translucent. Many people consider it a delicacy and really like eating it, and many more don't even know it is removable. A few cooks say that leaving the membrane intact prevents the seasoning from pen etrating the meat and stops the rendering of the fat. I have never found this to be true, I think that it is mostly a cosmetic issue and a little known one at that. Be forewarned, if your rack of ribs has any "bone shine," the mem brane will keep the rack intact and if you remove it, your rack will likely fall apart. The nal thing that you need to know is that the best way to test for doneness is to make sure that the meat has receded from the end of the bones and that you can bend the rack without breaking it in pieces. And, remember that the only way that the meat will fall off the bone, is if you par-boil them rst (just say no!) or if you over-cook them. The best ribs should be tender but have a little "chew" left.BACKYARD RIBS 101Servings: 6-8 Start to nish: 4 hours This recipe is my version of ribs that made me fall in love with backyard ribs. The Mem phis in May barbecue team took me under their wing and shared their secret_slathering the ribs in fresh lemon juice before seasoning them.Grilling MethodIndirect/Medium-Low Heat 4 racks pork ribs, about 2-3 pounds per slab 2 lemons, cut in half 1/4 cup Classic Barbecue Rub (see below) or favorite spice rub Soaked wood chips, if desired Favorite barbecue sauce Build charcoal re or preheat gas grill. Remove silver skin from back of ribs, if desired. I prefer to leave it on the ribs. Set up the grill for indirect heat and if using wood chips, place soaked chips directly on char coal, or in smoking box of gas grill. Rub the cut lemons over front and back of ribs squeezing to release as much juice as pos sible. Discard any lemon seeds. Set aside for 5 minutes. Sprinkle ribs liberally with spice rub and let sit, covered, for 15 minutes. Place ribs (bone side down) in the center of the cooking grate or in a rib holder/rack, making sure they are not over a direct ame. Grill covered (at about 300 F, if your grill has a thermometer) for 2-3 hours, depending on how big your racks are. Two-pound racks will take about 2 hours and 3-pound racks will take closer to 3 hours. The meat will be tender, and you can see that it has pulled back (re ceded) from the ends of the rib bones. Leave ribs untended for the rst 30 minutes_this means no peeking; especially important if using wood chips. If the ribs start to burn on the edges, stack them on top of one another in the very center of the grill and lower your re/heat slightly. Twenty minutes before serv ing, un-stack ribs, if necessary, and brush with barbecue sauce. Remove ribs from grill and let rest 10 minutes before cutting into individual or 2-3 rib por tions. Warm remaining sauce in a saucepan and serve on the side, if desired.Backyard Rib RubMakes about 1 1/2 cups 3 tablespoons white granulat ed sugar 2 tablespoons smoked paprika 2 tablespoons kosher salt 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar 1 tablespoon ground cumin 1 tablespoon freshly ground Worcestershire black pepper 1 tablespoon onion powder 1 tablespoon garlic powder 2 teaspoons chili powder 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients; mix well.

Replicating the Jucy Lucy seemed easy enough_but our burgers, cooked to well-done to melt the cheese inside, were dry and tough or the cheese melt ed through the meat, leaving an empty cavern where the cheese had been. To keep the cheese in place, we created a double-sealed pocket by wrapping the cheese inside a small beef patty and then mold ing a second patty around it. Adding a mixture of bread and milk, mashed into a paste, to the ground beef kept the burgers moist and juicy.JUCY LUCY BURGERSServings: 4 Start to nish: 45 minutes Buy the American cheese from the deli counter, and ask them to slice it into a 1/2-inch slab from which you can cut four big cubes to ll the center of the burgers. One or two percent low-fat milk can be substituted for the whole milk. The cheesy center of these burgers is molten hot when rst removed from the grill, so be sure to let the burgers rest for at least 5 minutes before serving. 2 slices hearty white sandwich bread, torn into 1-inch pieces 1/4 cup whole milk 1 teaspoon garlic powder 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1 1/2 pounds 85 percent lean ground beef 1 slice deli American cheese (1/2-inch-thick), quartered In large bowl using potato masher, mash bread, milk, gar lic powder, salt, and pepper into smooth paste. Add beef and light ly knead mixture until well com bined. Divide meat into four equal por tions. Using half of each portion of meat, encase cheese to form mini burger patty. Mold remaining half-portion of meat around mini patty and seal edges to form ball. Flatten ball with palm of your hand, forming 3/4-inch-thick patty. Cover and refrigerate pat ties for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours. For a charcoal grill: Open bottom vent completely. Light large chimney starter half lled with charcoal briquettes (3 quarts). When top coals are par tially covered with ash, pour even ly over grill. Set cooking grate in place, cover, and heat grill until hot, about 5 minutes. For a gas grill: Turn all burn ers to high, cover, and heat grill until hot, about 15 minutes. Turn all burners to medium. Clean and oil cooking grate. Lay burgers on grill and cook, without pressing on them, until well browned on both sides and cooked through, 12 to 16 minutes, ipping burgers halfway through grilling. Transfer burgers to plat ter, tent loosely with aluminum foil, and let rest for 5 minutes be fore serving.

How to make buttermilk dressing that's both hefty and tangy By Americas Test KitchenChili con queso has fallen on hard times; often it's just Ro-tel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies mixed with Velveeta, microwaved, and stirred. We wanted to keep the simplic ity but ditch the plastic avor and waxy texture. We started with a base of chicken broth, cream cheese, and cornstarch to help stabilize the cheese and prevent it from breaking. For the cheeses, we chose Mon terey Jack for its great avor and American cheese for its superior meltability. We kept the classic Rotel tomatoes but bumped up their a vor even more with garlic and canned chipotle chili. This dip tasted best when made with block cheese that we shredded ourselves; you can nd block Ameri can cheese at the deli counter. Preshredded cheese will work, but the dip will be much thicker.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) First came news that a Chinese government-owned company had signed on to help build an Indonesian project that will include a Donald Trump-branded hotel and golf course. Then, days later, the president tweeted that his administra tion would ease sanctions against a Chinese smartphone maker accused of es pionage. "Too many jobs in China lost," he wrote. Ethics watchdogs and political adversaries called last week's events a blatant case of Trump appearing to trade foreign favors to his business for changes in government policy, exactly the kind of situation they pre dicted would happen when the real estate mogul turned politician refused to divest from his sprawling business interests. And they say that such dealmaking will likely be come business as usual, un checked by a Republicanled Congress, court cases that could take years and a public that hasn't gotten too excited about the obscure constitutional prohibition on the president accepting emoluments, or benets, from foreign governments without congressional approval. "It's an issue that seems highly technical and com plex, and is difcult to link to everyday lives," said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Con necticut Democrat who is heading up an emoluments lawsuit brought by about 200 or so members of Con gress. "But when you bring it home to the reason for the emoluments clause, namely to prevent conicts of inter est, so the president will act only for the benet of the United States, not for his own self-interest, then peo ple should understand that his taking that benet compromises his priorities," Blumenthal said. Such concerns have dogged Trump since he took ofce. His Washington hotel, just blocks from the White House, has become a magnet for foreign governments seeking to inuence his administration, including groups tied to Kuwait, Bahrain, Turkey, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia. Trump's nancial disclosure last week showed the hotel took in more than $40 million in revenue last year. To allay fears of conicts, Trump promised to give the U.S. Treasury the prots from foreign stays at his hotels, which came to $151,470. His company declined to say how that gure was cal culated. A Quinnipiac University National Poll released in March found that 57 per cent of Americans believe Trump is not honest. Still, in the latest Quinnipiac poll last month, Trump's job approval rating stood at 41 percent, matching the high est mark of his presidency. Shana Gadarian, a politi cal psychologist at Syracuse University, said those who pay attention to politics tend to be more partisan and often set aside information they nd inconsistent with their beliefs. "To the extent that you like this administration," she said, "you might say this is just the way business is done. This isn't a con cern." Whether there was a quid pro quo in the ChinaIndonesia deal, similarly, depends on whom you ask. An Indonesian company, MNC Land, conrmed last week that it hired the sub sidiary of the state-owned Metallurgical Corp. of China to build a theme park in its Lido City development outside Jakarta. MNC Land three years earlier struck a deal for the development to include a Trump-branded hotel, 400 luxury villas and condos, and an 18-hole championship golf course. MNC Land said the Trump Organization has "no relationship" with the theme park that the Chi nese company is building. It also said that news reports that a Chinese governmentbacked $500 million loan for the project had been signed were false. The Trump Organization did not respond to a request for comment. China's for eign and commerce minis tries and the Cabinet's news ofce also did not respond to requests for comment. Calls to the China Metal lurgical Group rang unanswered. James Schultz, a former associate White House counsel for Trump, said the argument that Trump was violating the emoluments clause merely because a theme park is being built near a Trump hotel property is "farfetched." Just 72 hours after that deal was announced, Trump sent a tweet that marked what appeared to be a major reversal in the government's stance on massive Chinese phone company ZTE and on Trump's "America First" foreign policy. The U.S. intelligence community has warned about the Chinese smart phone maker's perceived ties to the Chinese govern ment and its possible use for remote surveillance. ZTE has been ned in re cent years for shipping American goods to ve em bargoed countries, including Iran and North Korea. The Pentagon banned ZTE phones from retail stores on military bases because the devices could be a se curity risk. And the Trump administration ordered a seven-year halt in American shipments of computer mi crochips and software that are at the heart of most of ZTE's telecommunications gear. That ban particularly was devastating to ZTE and its 75,000 employees, with the company recently announc ing it was halting opera tions. Trump tweeted that he was working with the presi dent of China "to give mas sive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast. Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!" Don Fox, the former general counsel of the U.S. Ofce of Government Eth ics, said the Chinese "knew exactly what they were in vesting in" with the deal in Indonesia. "It also strains credulity that the president wasn't aware of this when he made his favorable com ments about ZTE." Three pending lawsuits, which could potentially take years to litigate, are likely the key to untan gling whether such a busi ness deal, in addition to the various bookings of Trump properties by lobbyists, for eign governments, corporate and political interests, constitute emoluments. The president's attorneys have disputed that. "It is our only real remedy," Blumenthal said of the cases. "It may sound like a sign of frustration, and inertia, but the founders provided us this sole rem edy. ... We need a judge to order the president to obey the law." WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump escalated his efforts to dis credit the Russia investiga tion Wednesday, saying the FBI has been caught in a "MAJOR spy scandal" over its use of a secret informant to determine whether some of Trump's campaign aides were working with Russia ahead of the 2016 election. "SPYGATE could be one of the biggest political scandals in history!" Trump tweeted. Former FBI Director James Comey, who was red by Trump last year, said the agency's use of se cret informants was "tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country." "Attacks on the FBI and lying about its work will do lasting damage to our coun try. How will Republicans explain this to their grand children?" tweeted Comey, a former Republican who now identies as an inde pendent. At issue are reports that a longtime U.S. government informant approached members of Trump's cam paign in a possible bid to glean intelligence on Rus sian efforts to sway the election. Trump and his GOP sup porters in Congress are now demanding information on the outside informant, claiming it as proof that the Obama administration was trying to spy on his Repub lican campaign for political reasons. The White House has negotiated rare access to classied documents for Trump's congressional allies in a brieng expected Thursday. "Look how things have turned around on the Crimi nal Deep State," Trump tweeted Wednesday. "They go after Phony Collusion with Russia, a made up Scam, and end up getting caught in a major SPY scandal the likes of which this country may never have seen before! What goes around, comes around!" The president's com ments came a day after he increased pressure on the Justice Department, declining to say whether he has condence in Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Over the weekend, Trump demanded that the Justice Department investigate the FBI and Justice Department's handling of the Russia probe. The Justice Department agreed by expanding an open, internal investiga tion to determine whether there was any politically motivated surveillance. And the White House said that Trump chief of staff John Kelly would organize the meeting with House lawmakers to review the documents, although he and other White House staffers would not be present. FBI Director Christopher Wray, National Intelligence Director Dan Coats and Justice Department ofcial Edward O'Callaghan will meet with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy. White House press secre tary Sarah Sanders said no Democrats were invited be cause they had not request ed the information, despite calls from lawmakers for the brieng to be bipartisan. The top Democrat on the House intelligence panel, California Rep. Adam Schiff, said the brieng should have been done through the bipartisan "Gang of 8," which includes Republican and Democratic leaders and the top Repub licans and Democrats on the House and Senate intelligence panels. That group regularly receives classied briengs. The New York Times was the rst to report that the FBI had an informant who met several times with Trump campaign ofcials who had suspicious contacts linked to Russia. The Justice Department's internal probe began in March at the request of Attorney General Jeff Ses sions and congressional Re publicans. Sessions and the lawmakers urged Inspector General Michael Horowitz to review whether FBI and Justice Department ofcials abused their surveillance powers by using informa tion compiled by Christo pher Steele, a former Brit ish spy, and paid for by Democrats to justify monitoring Carter Page, a former campaign adviser to Trump. Horowitz said his ofce will look at those claims as well as communications between Steele and Justice and FBI ofcials.

(AP) Three more teens have been charged as adults with rst-degree murder in the death of a Maryland po lice ofcer, authorities said Wednesday. Fifteeen-year-old Darrell Jaymar Ward, 16-year-old Derrick Eugene Matthews and 17-year-old Eugene Robert Genius IV were charged in the killing of of cer Amy Caprio and were scheduled to appear at bail hearings Wednesday after noon, said Baltimore Coun ty State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger. The three, who were taken into custody Tuesday in Baltimore, are also charged with rst-degree burglary. Court records did not list defense attorneys, and attempts to reach people be lieved to be relatives were not successful. A fourth suspect, 16-yearold Dawnta Anthony Har ris, is also charged with rst-degree murder and was ordered held without bond after a hearing Tuesday in which a judge described him as a "one-man crime wave." The Associated Press does not ordinarily identify un derage suspects unless they face adult charges. A defense attorney re quested that Harris be sent to a juvenile lockup, but prosecutors noted his series of auto theft arrests and a repeated history of running away from juvenile facili ties. Caprio was run down Monday by a stolen Jeep driven by Harris after she responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle, investi gators have said. The slain ofcer's body camera footage clearly shows Harris accelerating the Jeep at her after she tried to apprehend him on the cul-de-sac in the sub urban Perry Hall commu nity northeast of Baltimore, prosecutor William Bickel said during a bail hearing Tuesday. "She red her weapon. He ran over her," Bickel said. The three other teens were burglarizing a home on the cul-de-sac while Harris was in the Jeep, ac cording to authorities and court documents. Shellenberger said Tues day that Maryland's felony murder law means they can also be held responsible "for everything that occurs as a result of that burglary, including when their co-de fendant is outside running over a police ofcer and killing her." Harris was apprehended shortly after abandoning the Jeep, which police said had been stolen May 18 in Bal timore. According to prob able cause statement, Harris admitted as much, telling a detective that he "drove at the ofcer." According other probable cause statements obtained Wednesday, Harris identied Ward, Matthews and Genius as the three subjects responsible for the burglary. Matthews and Ward ad mitting to committing the burglary, probable cause statements said. Genius at rst declined to give a statement but later objected to being charged with murder, saying he was in the house when the killing occurred, another statement said. Harris was supposed to be on house arrest and was still wearing a court-ordered ankle bracelet when he ran down Caprio, authorities said. The ninth-grader was on house arrest at his moth er's West Baltimore home, but ran away May 14, they said. Sam Abed, the Mary land Secretary of Juvenile Services, said at a news conference that his depart ment had made "many attempts" to contact Harris after he went missing from his mother's house but was unsuccessful. The ankle bracelet Har ris was wearing Monday simply indicated whether he was inside or outside his home it did not track his whereabouts, Shellenberger said. "Did the system not work?" police Chief Ter rence Sheridan said. "It sounds like ... it could have worked better in this par ticular case." Caprio, who would have been on the force four years in July, was smart, athletic and energetic, just the type of ofcer you want to hire, Sheridan said. She and her husband were to start vacation this weekend to celebrate their third wed ding anniversary and their upcoming birthdays, police said. A medical examiner de termined she died of trauma to the head and torso, ac cording to Sheridan. The death stunned the quiet, residential neigh borhood, said Baltimore County Councilman David Marks, who lives nearby. "The community I repre sent stands united in grief for this fallen police ofcer, and our hope is that all those involved are brought to justice," Marks said.

Turns out, smartphone addiction is by design. Think of the constant stream of notications, color schemes in apps and all the "likes," followers and in-game trophies. Our phones and apps are designed to give us shortterm, feel-good rewards, so we'll use them longer at the expense of read ing, enjoying the moment or simply being bored. Some companies are relenting in response to concerns from customers and experts. Google's next operating system for instance, will come with a "wind down" mode; the screen will automatically fade to grey at a designated time before bed. Another feature will automatically put your phone in "do not disturb" mode if you ip it face down on a table. But most Android phones won't get this sys tem, Android P, until late this year or even next year, if at all. And it's unclear if Apple plans similar features for the iPhone. So, for now, here's how you can outsmart the smartphone yourself:LIMIT NOTIFICATIONSNotice those red dots on iPhones and Samsung phones showing how many unread messages, news items or app updates you have left to read? Of course, you have. "Red is a trigger color that instantly draws our attention," notes The Center for Humane Technol ogy an organization that promotes a healthier, less dependent relationship to technology. Other Android phones running the most recent version, Oreo, have small er dots. There are no numbers, and colors are more subtle, but the concept is the same: to lure you into opening the app. To foil that on iPhones and most recent Android phones, go to your phone's settings and turn off the dots, known as badges, for all but the handful of apps you care most about. These might be messaging apps you use with friends, or news services you want breaking-news alerts from. But do you really need a red dot for the 2,346 un read emails you have? You can also turn off push notications, app by app. With Facebook, you'll need to go to the app's own settings to turn off the dozens of notication cat egories, such as "updates on your friends since you last logged in." Turning a category off will turn off dots for that category, too.DETOX REGULARLYIt can be as simple as going to the bathroom without your phone or turning it off during meal times or even every Satur day. Leaving your phone behind helps your brain reset. If you need a prompt on just why you should "detox," try Moment, an app that automatically tracks how much you use your iPhone or iPad each day. It's not perfect, as the timer runs anytime your screen is unlocked, even if you've stepped away. Still, the results will probably surprise you. For Android, there's an app called Qual ityTime.SET A SCHEDULENir Eyal, author of "Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products," compares humans to lab mice in an experiment of random rewards. Mice, it turns out, respond "most voraciously to random rewards," Eyal wrote in 2012 Social media apps have perfected the art of random rewards. You don't know when you'll get a friend request, or a like, or even when you'll see a new post from a friend. Cue endless check-ins and scrolling. Set aside a specic time each day to check Face book or email, or in stant messages. Then re sist the urge until the next scheduled time. Along those lines, try deleting the Facebook app from your phone and check only from a comput er. This could help reduce the temptation to check all day.TURN OFF AUTOPLAYBinge-watching might be fun sometimes, but it shouldn't be standard be havior. Services like You Tube and Netix often play the next video automatically. Turn that off in the settings. Otherwise, it's easy to forget where time went in the middle of a "Stranger Things" binge.GET AN ALARM CLOCKThere was a time not too long ago when we were able to wake up without our phones, using a magi cal device called an alarm clock. Get one. The Center for Humane Technology suggests banishing phones from your bedside, if not the entire bedroom. This should make for better sleep, part ly because the blue light emitted from your phone can delay your body's release of melatonin, which helps your body go to sleep at night. But perking up after a bedtime Face book "like" or getting anxious after reading a news story can also disrupt your ZZZs. So, put your phone a lit tle further and who knows, you might even wake up and say good morning to your partner instead of checking your phone be fore you're even out of bed.

Thursday, May 24, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E5 WONSAN, North Korea (AP) A group of foreign journalists departed by train Wednesday to watch the dismantling of North Korea's nuclear test site after eight reporters from South Korea received lastminute permission to join them. The remote site deep in the mountains of the North's sparsely populated northeast interior is expect ed to have a formal closing ceremony in the next day or two, depending on the weather. The closing was announced by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ahead of his planned summit with U.S. President Donald Trump next month. The train trip was expected to take 8-12 hours, followed by several hours on a bus and then an hour hike to the site itself. The journalists were put in sleeping cars on the train, four bunks to a compartment. The compartments had windows cov ered with blinds, and the journalists were told not to open the blinds during the journey. Media were also expected to pay their own costs for the trip. The train fare was $75 per person round trip. Each meal was $20. North Korea had earlier refused to grant entry visas to the South Korean jour nalists after the North cut off high-level contact with Seoul to protest joint U.S.South Korean military exercises. But North Korea accepted the list of the South Korean journalists to attend via a cross-border communication channel. The journalists from the MBC television network and News1 wire service took a special government ight later Wednesday to go to the North's northeast ern coastal city of Wonsan. The other journalists from the United States, the UK, China and Russia arrived in Wonsan on Tuesday. The group includes an Associated Press Television crew. The North's eleventhhour decision to allow the South Koreans to join came just after Trump met South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Washington to try to keep the Kim-Trump summit from going off the rails. Trump indicated he believes the meeting will take place, but left open the possibility it would be de layed or even cancelled if a fruitful outcome doesn't seem likely. The summit could offer a historic chance for peace on the Korean Peninsula. But there has been increasing pessimism about the meeting after North Korea scrapped the interKorean talks and threat ened to do the same for the Kim-Trump summit in protest of the South KoreaU.S. military drills and what it calls Washington's push for "one-sided" disar mament. The North's decision to close the Punggye-ri nuclear test site has generally been seen as a welcome gesture by Kim to set a positive tone ahead of the summit. Even so, it is not an irreversible move and would need to be followed by many more signicant measures to meet Trump's demands for real denucle arization. By bringing in the for eign media, mainly television networks, the North is apparently hoping to have images of the closing including explosions to collapse tunnel entrances broadcast around the world. But it has not in vited international inspec tors to the ceremony, which limits its value as a serious concession.

Foreign media depart on train for North Korean nuclear site Migrant remittances a big business in cash-starved VenezuelaBOGOTA, Colombia (AP) The giant metal pots in the kitchen of a drab Bo gota cafeteria are lled with simple dishes like vegetable rice. But Edgary Granadillo's delicate arrangement of the plates he sets before rushed lunchtime ofce workers hints at the ner dishes he once served. The former executive chef at a beach resort in Venezu ela once commanded a staff of 65 cooks and made regu lar appearances on television cooking shows. Now he is laboring for $10 a day, with one sole aim: to send money back home. "The wages there aren't enough," Granadillo, 30, said, his dark, somber eyes keeping a careful eye on a bubbling saucepan of sh head soup. "People need to rely on a Venezuelan outside the country, who can send something, in order to sur vive." As the number of Venezu elans eeing their country's deepening economic and humanitarian crisis climbs, a burgeoning lifeline for those back home is emerging remittances. Skirting strict currency controls, dozens of transfer operations, mostly small-scale businesses run by a handful of exiles en tirely online, have opened abroad to help emigres con vert their dollars and pesos into Venezuelan bolivars that arrive within minutes in a relative's Venezuelan bank account. The remittances are big business. Independent experts estimate Venezuelans now send at least $1 billion a year to friends and family members that they've left be hind. That money is critical at a time when Venezuela's mini mum wage is now worth less than $2 a month, and the government of President Nicolas Maduro, who won a new six-year term Sunday in a contested vote many fear will spur even more people to leave, is taking note. Blaming the operations for feeding devaluation and hoping to snag a piece of the pie Venezuelan of cials recently shut down several exchange houses and announced they would be opening their own. More than 100 people linked to remittance busi nesses have been detained in what ofcials dub "Op eration Paper Hands." They are accused of speculating on the value of the bolivar by using the black-market exchange rate. The board of directors of Venezuela's top private bank, which held many of the remittance accounts, was arrested as part of the operation. Venezuela's chief prosecutor, Tarek William Saab, has warned that "new detention centers should be built for this type of crime," which he said was causing "grave damage" to the nation's economy. He added that while many of the business operators might be work ing from outside the coun try, avoiding arrest, ofcials have identied accomplices within Venezuela. "They might be abroad playing with the pain of Ven ezuelans, but we know who they work with," he said. Most remittances sent to Latin America come from migrants in the U.S., who send money to Mexico, Cuba and other nations in Central America and the Caribbean. In 2016, those mon ey transfers valued $74.3 billion in some cases, contributing more than 10 percent of a nation's gross domestic product. Venezuela historically had been a receptor of migrants, and thus a country people sent remittances from, but that has changed. "The majority 100 per cent, and if not 100 percent, more than 99 percent of Venezuelans who leave the country are doing so in or der to send money back to relatives," said Yulia Torres, founder of an Instagram ac count called "Venezuelans in Bogota" that has attracted more than 40,000 followers. "They might not ask you for it, but they absolutely need it," she said of relatives back home. To keep their accounts ush with bolivars, money changers must wade into Venezuela's murky black market, where they sell dol lars held in accounts abroad at 100 times the ofcial rate, which only state agencies and privileged insiders have access to. At a typical transfer shop, Venezuelans who operate the business maintain personal bank accounts within Ven ezuela while opening new ones in foreign currencies abroad. Migrants in Bogota, for example, deposit pesos into the business' Colombian bank account and the exchange operators transfer an equivalent amount of bolivars from their own Vene zuelan account to that of the indicated relative. Ecoanalitica, a Venezuelan nancial consulting rm, estimates about $1.1 billion in remittances were transferred to Venezuelans last year, a number analysts say could be higher given the difculty in calculating informal transactions. Even on the lower end, that would mean upward of 4 million Venezuelans, or around 15 percent of the population, receive help from abroad. "Increasingly middle class households need remittances in order to survive," said Jean Paul Leidenz, a senior economist at Ecoanalitica. "But we cannot just depend on remittances for hard cur rency income. Because they never enter the economy." Maduro has repeatedly accused Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos of waging an economic war against Venezuela by allowing "maas" to horde large quantities of bolivars. While large stockpiles of bolivars have been found as far away as Paraguay, suggesting net works are speculating on the currency's value, analysts say Venezuela's current economic turmoil is driven by poor government decisions, such as issuing new money much faster than there is anything available to spend it on. Venezuela imposed cur rency controls in 2003 aimed at halting capital ight, but most economists say they have actually been driving the current nancial crisis. Individuals and businesses must apply to receive dollars at the government-set of cial rate to import goods and cover other transactions. But except for the public sector and a few privileged insid ers, most Venezuelans must turn to the black market, where one dollar currently fetches about 100 times more bolivars than at the of cial rate. Using that rate, analysts say Venezuela's ofcial ex change houses would never be able to compete. "We are a solution," said Victor Aguirre, who repaired roofs in Venezuela and opened an online exchange business with a friend a few months after arriving in Colombia. A Panama-based manager at Rapid Cambio, one of the businesses recently blacklisted by the government, likened the government's detentions to a "witch hunt." Speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of further reprisal, he said he plans to open a new business as soon as the dust settles. Like many migrants, Granadillo, the chef, makes barely enough money to cover his daily expenses. But in one day of working in Bogota he earns as much as he did in a month in Venezuela. The little he is able to send back doesn't go far, but his 62-year-old mother says she would go hungry without it. On a recent afternoon, Ana Teresa Rondon used the money Granadillo sent back to purchase a few peppers, an avocado and 3 pounds of chicken that she said would need to last a month. "Without the remittance, I wouldn't be able to buy any thing," she said.

Page E6, CITIZEN TRIBUNE HealthEEE-2 Tuesday, May 22, 2018 BY ANDREW TAYLOR Associated PressWASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. sugar industry on Thursday won an easierthan-expected victory over food processors, soft drink manufacturers and candy makers trying to rewrite the government's much-criticized sugar program, a web of price supports, loans and tariffs that props up prices for the commodity. In a decisive 278-137 vote, the House rejected a bid by Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., to signicantly weaken the program and invite more foreign competition. The sugar program was one of the key battles in this year's farm bill, a veyear renewal of federal farm and nutrition policy that is again proving to be a headache for Republicans controlling Congress. This year, conservatives hoping to force progress on unrelated immigration issues are lining up to threaten passage of the overall farm measure. The move by the hard-right House Freedom Caucus appears to have put passage of the measure Friday in jeopardy. GOP leaders are pro moting this year's renewal of the measure as tighten ing work and job train ing requirements for food stamps. But the food stamp proposal has driven Demo crats away from the bill. That means Republicans have to pass the measure with minimal defections, and it puts pressure on Re publicans who have criti cized costly farm subsidies in the past. Freedom Caucus Chair man Mark Meadows, R-NC., says that "the time is now" to deal with immi gration and that the farm bill doesn't face a pressing deadline. He said farmers "want us to deal with im migration and the farm bill both." Meadows and other Freedom Caucus members met with House leaders into the evening Thursday to try to resolve their dis putes. "Everybody's trying to get to 'yes,'" Meadows told reporters, but ques tions remain unresolved. The sugar program is part of an amalgam of com modity support programs that have sweeping backing in Republican-leaning farm country. But many Republicans oppose the sugar program, saying it runs counter to the party's free market bearings. "It's one of the most ri diculous programs in the entire federal government, and that's saying some thing," said Rep. Tom Mc Clintock, R-Calif. Some GOP moderates are uneasy about the new work standards for food stamps, which the Con gressional Budget Ofce estimates would drive up to 2 million people off the program. Currently, adults ages 18 to 59 are required to work part time or agree to accept a job if they're offered one. Stricter rules apply to ablebodied adults without de pendents between the ages of 18 and 49. They are subject to a three-month limit of benets unless they meet a work requirement of 80 hours per month. The new bill expands that requirement to apply to all work-capable adults, mandating that they either work or participate in work training for 20 hours per week with the exception of seniors, pregnant women, caretakers of children un der the age of 6, or people with disabilities. For years, the twice-adecade effort to rewrite the farm bill has relied on a coalition of farm-state Republicans who back fed eral agriculture subsidies and other assistance and Democrats supporting food stamps. This has proved frustrating to conservatives seeking to make changes to either side of the measure. Foxx's sugar plan would have scrapped production limits, given the Department of Agriculture more power to boost sugar im ports and eliminated a government program that sells surpluses to ethanol producers. "Let's be crystal clear about what the sugar pro gram does: It puts the gov ernment in charge of deciding how much sugar will be produced in this coun try, which inates the cost and it guarantees the processing industry a base prot by giving them sub sidized loans," Foxx said Thursday. "We stopped these practices years ago for other commodities and only sugar is left with this sweet deal." A comparable vote ve years ago was very close, but Thursday's tally was a runaway. Democrats voted overwhelmingly to defend the sugar program, as did a majority of Republicans, heeding warnings that un raveling it would threaten the entire farm bill. House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway, R-Texas, said Foxx's proposal was a "poison pill" since its passage could bleed support for the underlying farm bill and force Republicans in some areas to take a politically tough vote. Indeed, a string of lawmakers from Minnesota, Florida, Michigan, Texas and Nebraska rose up to defend the program and the thousands of jobs it supports in their states. Passage of the farm bill is a priority for GOP lead ers, who are eager to pitch to voters its tougher work requirements for food stamps, a party priority that polls well with voters. "This is going to get more people out of poverty. This is going to get more people a steady job. This is going to get more people moving toward a good career," said House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis.Lawmakers repel challenge to much-criticized sugar programDiet soda may be hurting your diet APHouse Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway, R-Texas, joined from left by Rep.

Also called nonnutritive sweeteners, these can be synthetic such as saccharin and aspartame or naturally derived, such as steviol, which comes from the Stevia plant. To date, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved six types of articial and two types of natural non-nutritive sweeteners for use in food. Thats been great news for those working hard to curb their sugar consumption. Aspartame, for example, is found in more than 6,000 foods worldwide, and about 5,000-5,500 tons are consumed every year in the United States alone. The American Diabetes Association the most well-respected professional group focusing on diabetes ofcially recommends diet soda as an alternative to sugar-sweetened beverages. To date, seven U.S. municipalities have imposed a sugary beverage tax to discourage consumption. However, recent medical studies suggest that policymakers ea ger to implement a soda tax may also want to include diet drinks because these sweeteners may be contributing to chronic diabetes and cardiovascular diseases as well. Why are these sweeteners calo rie-free?The key to these virtually calorie-free sweeteners is that they are not broken down during digestion into natural sugars like glucose, fructose and galactose, which are then either used for en ergy or converted into fat. Non-nutritive sweeteners have different byproducts that are not converted into calories. Aspar tame, for example, undergoes a different metabolic process that doesnt yield simple sugars. Oth ers such as saccharin and sucra lose are not broken down at all, but instead are absorbed directly into the bloodstream and excreted in the urine. Theoretically, these sweeteners should be a better choice than sugar for diabetics. Glucose stimulates release of insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. Type 2 diabetes oc curs when the body no longer responds as well to insulin as it should, leading to higher levels of glucose in the blood that damages the nerves, kidneys, blood vessels and heart. Since non-nutritive sweeteners arent actually sugar, they should sidestep this problem. Articial sweeteners, your brain and your microbiomeHow ever, there is growing evidence over the last decade that these sweeteners can alter healthy metabolic processes in other ways, specically in the gut. Long-term use of these sweeteners has been associated with a higher risk of Type 2 diabetes. Sweeteners, such as saccharin, have been shown to change the type and function of the gut mi crobiome, the community of mi croorganisms that live in the in testine. Aspartame decreases the activity of a gut enzyme that is normally protective against Type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, this re sponse may be exacerbated by the mismatch between the body perceiving something as tasting sweet and the expected associated calories. The greater the discrepancy between the sweetness and actual caloric content, the greater the metabolic dysregulation. Sweeteners have also been shown to change brain activity as sociated with eating sweet foods. A functional MRI exam, which studies brain activity by measur ing blood ow, has shown that sucralose, compared to regular sugar, decreases activity in the amygdala, a part of the brain involved with taste perception and the experience of eating. Another study revealed that longer-term and higher diet soda consumption are linked to lower activity in the brains caudate head, a region that mediates the reward pathway and is necessary for generating a feeling of satisfaction. Researchers have hypothesized that this decreased activity could lead a diet soda drinker to compensate for the lack of pleasure they now derive from the food by increasing their consumption of all foods, not just soda. Together these cellular and brain studies may explain why people who consume sweeteners still have a higher risk of obesity than individuals who dont con sume these products. As this debate on the pros and cons of these sugar substitutes rages on, we must view these behavioral studies with a grain of salt (or sugar) because many diet soda drinkers or any health-con scious individual who consumes zero-calorie sweeteners already has the risk factors for obesity, diabetes, hypertension or heart disease. Those who are already overweight or obese may turn to ward low-calorie drinks, making it look as though the diet sodas are causing their weight gain. This same group may also be less likely to moderate their con sumption. For example, those people may think that having a diet soda multiple times a week is much healthier than drinking one case of soda with sugar. These ndings signal that con sumers and health practitioners all need to check our assumptions about the health benets of these products. Sweeteners are every where, from beverages to salad dressing, from cookies to yogurt, and we must recognize that there is no guarantee that these chemi cals wont increase the burden of metabolic diseases in the future. As a physician of internal med icine specializing in general prevention and public health, I would like to be able to tell my patients what the true risks and benets are if they drink diet soda instead of water. Legislators considering soda taxes to encourage better di etary habits perhaps should think about including foods with nonnutritive sweeteners. Of course, there is an argument to be made for being realistic and pursuing the lesser of two evils. But even if the negative consequences of sugar substitutes doesnt sway our tax policy for now at least the medical community should be honest with the public about what they stand to lose or gain, con suming these foods.

Thursday, May 24, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E7 WASHINGTON (AP) Ratcheting up pressure on the Russia investiga tion, the White House announced that top FBI and Justice Department ofcials have agreed to meet with congressional leaders and "review" highly classied information the lawmakers have been seeking on the handling of the probe. The agreement came after President Donald Trump made an extraordinary demand that the Jus tice Department investigate whether the FBI inltrated his presidential campaign. It's unclear exactly what the members will be allowed to review or if the Justice De partment will be providing any documents to Congress. White House press secre tary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump chief of staff John Kelly will broker the meeting between congressional leaders and the FBI, Justice Department and of ce of the Director of Na tional Intelligence. She said the ofcials will "review highly classied and other information they have requested," but did not pro vide additional detail. During a meeting Mon day with Trump, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Direc tor Christopher Wray also reiterated an announcement late Sunday that the Jus tice Department's inspector general will expand an existing investigation into the Russia probe by examining whether there was any im proper politically motivated surveillance. Rep. Devin Nunes, an ar dent Trump supporter and head of the House Intelli gence Committee, has been demanding information on an FBI source in the Russia investigation. And Trump has taken up the cause as the White House tries to combat the threat posed by special counsel Rob ert Mueller's investigation into potential ties between Russia and the Trump cam paign. On Tuesday, a group of conservative House lawmakers planned to call for the appointment of a second special counsel to investi gate whether misconduct took place in the FBI and the Justice Department. Trump tweeted Sunday, "I hereby demand, and will do so ofcially tomorrow, that the Department of Jus tice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ inltrated or surveilled the Trump Cam paign for Political Purposes and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!" With the demand, Trump entered into the realm of ap plying presidential pressure on the Justice Department regarding an investigation into his own campaign a move few of his predeces sors have made. Trump made the demand amid days of public venting about the special counsel investigation, which he has deemed a "witch hunt" that he says has yielded no evi dence of collusion between his campaign and Russia. In response, the Justice De partment moved to defuse the confrontation by asking its watchdog to investigate whether there was inappro priate surveillance. "If anyone did inltrate or surveil participants in a presidential campaign for inappropriate purposes, we need to know about it and take appropriate action," Rosenstein said in a state ment announcing the move. The Justice Department probe began in March at the request of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and congressional Republicans. Sessions and the lawmak ers urged Inspector General Michael Horowitz to review whether FBI and Justice Department ofcials abused their surveillance powers by using information compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British spy, and paid for by Democrats to justify monitoring Carter Page, a former campaign adviser to Trump. Horowitz said his ofce will look at those claims as well as communications between Steele and Justice and FBI ofcials. The back and forth be tween the Justice Department and Congress began with a classied subpoena from Nunes in late April. The panel didn't publicize the subpoena, but the Jus tice Department released a letter it sent to Nunes re jecting the request for infor mation "regarding a specic individual." The department said disclosure could have severe consequences, in cluding potential loss of human life. The Justice Department said the White House had signed off on its letter, but Nunes wasn't satised, and continued to pressure the department. Negotiations between the House Repub licans and the Justice department appeared to stall last week ahead of Trump's tweet an apparent rever sal of the White House's ini tial policy. Rep. Adam Schiff of Cal ifornia, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has called Trump's claim of an embedded spy "nonsense." "His 'demand' DOJ investigate something they know to be untrue is an abuse of power, and an effort to dis tract from his growing legal problems," Schiff tweeted. "Never mind that DOJ has warned that lives and alli ances are at risk. He doesn't care." Trump's demand of the Justice Department alarmed many observers, who felt it not only violated presiden tial protocol but also could have a chilling effect on federal law enforcement or its use of informants. The New York Times was the rst to report that the FBI had an informant who met several times with Trump campaign ofcials who had suspicious contacts linked to Russia. The GOP-led House Intelligence Committee closed its Russian meddling probe last month, saying it found no evidence of collusion or coordination be tween Trump's campaign and Russia. Schiff and other committee Democrats were furious and argued that Re publicans had not subpoe naed many witnesses they considered essential to the committee's work. Sunday was not the rst time that Trump accused his predecessor of politically motivated activity against him. Without substantiation, Trump tweeted in March 2017 that former Presi dent Barack Obama had conducted surveillance the previous October at Trump Tower, the New York skyscraper where Trump ran his campaign and transition and maintains a residence. Comey later testied to Congress that internal re views found no information to support the president's tweets. Trump red Comey over the FBI's Russia investigation. CITIZEN TRIBUNE PoliticsTuesday, May 22, 2018 EEE-3 APFBI Director Christopher Wray, right, leaves the White House, Monday, May 21, 2018, in Wash ington. Congressional leaders to review information on Russia probeTrump the dealmaker facing challenges ahead of NKorea summitWASHINGTON (AP) Weeks before his planned North Korea summit, Presi dent Donald Trump is star ing down a dealmaker's worst nightmare: overpromising and under-delivering. As the Singapore meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un draws near, the president and his allies are growing increasingly anxious about how he can score a win on the world stage. While Trump has not suggested he wants to back out, he has struggled to de ne his objectives for the historic sit-down, and last week he drew fresh criti cism from his foreign foil. "I think that Trump imag ined he would go into this meeting and be able to have a historic breakthrough with a deal, but it's clear he's starting to realize it won't be as easy as he imagined," said Jean Lee, director of the North Korea program at the Woodrow Wilson Center and a former Asso ciated Press bureau chief in Pyongyang. Trump, who has pitched himself as the ultimate ne gotiator, has focused on ambitious deals as president but has struggled with the ne print. He just hit the pause button on his threat ened trade war with China, announcing an agreement to reduce America's trade decit with China but few details. He recently withdrew the U.S. from the international Iran-nuclear deal without outlining a path forward with his allies. And his Middle East peace plan, which he deputized his son-in-law to lead, is months overdue and facing a more skeptical audience than ever. Supporters stress that sometimes Trump's ambi tious efforts do pay off, as with the massive tax cut bill he signed into law late last year. Going into the North Ko rea meeting, senior administration ofcials say, the president has been almost singularly focused on the pageantry of the summit including the suspenseful roll-out of details. He has not been deeply engaged in brieng materials on North Korea's nuclear program, said three people with knowledge of the White House efforts. They were not authorized to speak publicly. Scott Snyder, director of the Program on U.S.Korea Policy at the Coun cil of Foreign Relations, said there's a risk that "the ceremony and the historic nature of the meeting be allowed to overshadow the deliverables." Driven by gut instinct, Trump rarely dives deep as he prepares to meet with foreign counterparts. For the North Korea meeting, insiders say, he is motivat ed by the idea of scoring a historic deal and is tickled by suggestions he could win a Nobel Peace Prize especially since Barack Obama won the honor early in his presidency. Trump has maintained publicly that his goal is to see the Korean Peninsula denuclearized, and the North has agreed to put its nuclear program on the negotiating table as a condition for the talks. But the two sides are still miles apart on dening what might be mutually ac ceptable. Trump will huddle Tues day at the White House with South Korean President Moon Jae-in to prepare for the June 12 summit. It was Moon's government that de livered the initial invitation from Kim for a meeting, and South Korea has been pushing the U.S. toward a peaceful resolution to the nuclear crisis. North Korea threw a wrench in the plans last week, threatening to cancel over concerns about the U.S. push to see the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Admin istration ofcials viewed the warning as bluster, akin to Trump's own promise to walk away if Kim isn't seri ous about denuclearization. Both sides, they said, have a vested interest in a success ful meeting. Trump attempted to assuage Kim's concerns last week, promising "protections" should he abandon his nuclear weapons. But Trump also suggested Kim risks being overthrown and possibly death if the arsenal remains. Two former Trump administration ofcials said the high degree of uncer tainty surrounding the talks benets Kim, who stands to gain the most in the form of international legitimacy from a sit-down with Trump. Concrete gains for Trump would be slower to emerge. Denuclearization programs are measured in months, not days, and for North Korea, which has already dem onstrated thermonuclear capability, it would likely take years to dismantle and verify that it had abandoned its atomic efforts, should it agree to do so. One ofcial said the priority of the talks in Singa pore would be to reach a topline understanding with Kim, with details to be eshed out later. The best-case scenario, experts said, would mirror the Iran-nuclear agreement that Trump withdrew from earlier this month secur ing an end to the North's atomic program in ex change for a lifting of sanc tions. Such an agreement could provide Kim more as surances that his leadership would be secure. While public jockeying last week led to speculation about whether the meeting will happen, people close to Trump say he does want it to take place. Victor Cha, a professor at Georgetown University and former White House ofcial, said the best out come would be "good op tics, good atmospherics, some broad statements on denuclearization and peace, and some immediate deliv erable." He said the worstcase scenario was canceling the meeting. "Where are we, if the meeting is canceled? Are we going back to where we were in 2017? Is North Korea going to start testing again?" he asked. "I think from the broader perspective, that would be the worst outcome." Laying the political groundwork, Vice President Mike Pence, in an inter view with Fox News, said both the Clinton and Bush administrations had been "played" by the North Ko rean government. "We offered concessions to the North Korean regime in exchange for promises to end their nuclear weapons program, only to see them break those promises and abandon them," he said. "It would be a great mistake for Kim Jong Un to think he could play Donald Trump."

Page E8, PERRY HALL, Md. (AP) A 16-year-old boy has been charged with rstdegree murder in the slaying of a Baltimore County, Maryland, police ofcer, and three other suspects were taken into custody, authorities said Tuesday. A statement of probable cause dated Tuesday identied the suspect as Dawn ta Anthony Harris of Baltimore and the ofcer as Amy Caprio. Police have not conrmed how Caprio was fatally injured in a sub urban neighborhood Monday, but witnesses reported hearing a pop before seeing a Jeep run her over. Meanwhile, ofcials said Tuesday that three addi tional teenagers had been taken into custody after the ofcer was killed. Baltimore County's public safety department tweeted Tuesday morning that the teenagers are suspects in area burglaries. The department did not say whether the three played any role in the of cer's death. Harris, who was ar rested near where a Jeep was found abandoned, told a detective he had been waiting in the driver's seat of the vehicle as other as sociates of his were in the process of committing a burglary, according to the probable cause statement. Harris also told the de tective that he "drove at the ofcer," the statement said. Scott Shellenberger, the state's attorney for Baltimore County, told The As sociated Press the teen has been charged as an adult. The Associated Press does not ordinarily identify underage suspects unless they face adult charges. The records don't list an attorney for Harris, and attempts to reach people believed to be his family members were not imme diately successful. He was scheduled to appear before a judge at a Towson court house at 1 p.m. Tuesday. Tony Kurek told The Associated Press his adult son was outside in the family's yard Monday afternoon in the northeast Baltimore County community when the son saw the ofcer with her gun drawn, confronting the occupants of a Jeep. "The next thing he heard was a pop, and he saw the Jeep take off and run right over her," said Kurek. The car left skid marks behind, he said, leaving the ofcer down and bleeding. Logan Kurek, who is a volunteer reghter, said he heard his younger broth er "frantically screaming" and ran outside to perform CPR. Baltimore County Police Cpl. Shawn Vinson said the ofcer went to investigate a call about a suspicious ve hicle when she encountered at least one suspect and was "critically injured." He added that the confrontation may have stemmed from a burglary in prog ress, noting one home on the block had damage to a patio door. "What exactly happened, we are not sure yet until an autopsy is performed," Vinson said at a news con ference Monday. He said he had no information about whether she had red her own weapon. Events began unfolding Monday afternoon in the leafy neighborhood of sin gle-family homes. It was then that Kurek's neighbor, Dahle Amendt, said he had just settled into his recliner for a rest when he heard a woman's voice outside his house. "I heard, 'Get out of the car!' 'Get out of the car!' Get out of the car!' at least three times, and then a pop," Amendt said. Amendt said his wife also ran outside and tried to revive the ofcer, who police say would have been on the force four years in July. "This is a shock. It's a quiet community. It's just so sad," Amendt said.

"The Senses: Design Beyond Vision" features works that invite visitors to touch, hear and smell often in combination (while looking good too). It's on view at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum through Oct. 28. Some of the pieces are already available to consumers, while others are prototypes offering glimpses of what may be to come. The designers hope "to stimulate our sensory responses to solve prob lems of access and enrich our interactions with the world," says museum di rector Caroline Baumann. The family-friendly ex hibit includes dozens of touchable works (customdesigned geranium and sandalwood hand sanitizer is provided throughout). And in keeping with the exhibit's focus on accessibility "beyond vision," many of its labels are in braille and feature audio descriptions. "This is very different from other shows because it's about experience. There are a lot of experi ences for people to try," says Andrea Lipps, assis tant curator of contempo rary design at the Cooper Hewitt, who organized the show with Ellen Lupton, senior curator of contemporary design. "Almost every work here engages multiple senses." The show opens with a large, curvaceous, furry wall embedded with sen sors that play music when it's touched. "Tactile Or chestra," created by Studio Roos Meerman and Kunst LAB Arnhem, is designed so that one touch prompts a recording of a string instrument playing, and multiple touches result in the playing of the entire musical composition. "Everyone who sees the wall wants to pet it, and the more people who stroke the wall, the more instruments join in," Lipps says. "It's tactile and audio and visual." Across the room, "Dia lect for a New Era" fea tures six translucent pil lars, each with a line of text describing an emo tional state. Visitors can push a button on each pillar, releasing a scent meant to forge connections be tween language and smell. The piece is a collaborative work by Frederik Du erinck and Marcel Van Brakel, Polymorf and IFF, along with linguist Asifa Majid and perfumer Lau rent Le Guernec. Other attractions include a commissioned work by Man Made Music called Alarm Fatigue. Its design aims to improve the sonic environment of hospitals, where the frequent beep ing and pinging of medical equipment can be problematic for patients and caregivers alike. There's a 3-D map of the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C., that talks when touched (by Touch Graphics), and a Dot Watch, a braille smart watch. Vibeat wearable speak ers are designed to convert sound into vibrations that can be felt on the skin. Elsewhere, digital animation translates bird chirps into bursts of color and motion. Another section of the exhibit features 3-D print ed vessels made from cur ry or coffee grounds that smell, well, like curry or coffee (by architects Ron ald Rael and Virginia San Fratello). A work called "Seated Catalog of Feelings," by Sosolimited, sends patterns of vibrations through the seat and back of a chair to evoke odd sensations like "falling backward into a tub of Jell-O" or "get ting stroked by an electric toothbrush." Snow Storm, a commissioned work by Christopher Brosius, features balls of felted wool suspended from above, each infused with a scent meant to evoke winter. "It's fun, but it's also about smell in our living spaces. Wool holds smell much more than skin," Lipps explains. "So spray ing perfume on a sweater will make the smell last longer than if you spray it on your skin." And for those struggling with loss of appetite, Ode is a "personal scent player" that diffuses food smells into a room at mealtime. "When we munch on a crunchy pretzel and or swallow a creamy blob of ice cream, we indulge in the multisensory allure of eating. Although serv ing food is off-limits in a museum, the exhibition shows how package designers use color and tex ture to prime our appetite," says Lupton. Jinhyun Jeon's Sensory Spoons, which are edged with bumps or rippled like waves to stimulate the mouth, highlights the rela tionship between taste and touch, Lupton says. Elsewhere, jazzy, color ful buttons, handles and grab bars as illustrated by Dementia Care Bath room Fixtures by HEWI promote safety by help ing those features stand out better. As with many of the works in the show, they combine style and function and are intended to appeal to both those with and without sensory disabilities. The show is accom panied by a book, "The Senses: Design Beyond Vision," by David Genco, co-published by the Cooper Hewitt museum and Princeton Architectural Press. "Design is extending the realm of the senses," Baumann writes in her foreword to the book. "Ex perimenting with new and familiar materials, customizing products, and embracing the different needs and experiences of users, contemporary designers are capitalizing on our extraordinary pow ers of perception to enrich and improve daily life."

AroundOsceola.com THE HAGUE, Nether lands (AP) Calling it a "historic step" toward jus tice, the Palestinian foreign minister asked the International Criminal Court on Tuesday to open an "immediate investigation" into alleged Israeli crimes com mitted against the Palestinian people. The development was sure to worsen the already troubled relations between the internationally backed Palestinian Authority and Israeli Prime Minister Ben jamin Netanyahu's government. Peace talks have been frozen for over four years, and contacts between the two sides are minimal. Speaking to reporters at the ICC in The Hague, Neth erlands, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki said he submitted the "referral" to the court during a meeting with the ICC's chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda. The referral sought an in vestigation into Israeli policies in the West Bank, east Jerusalem and Gaza Strip since the state of Palestine accepted the ICC's jurisdiction in 2014, he said. This includes Israeli set tlement policies in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, as well as the recent round of bloodshed in the Gaza Strip, where Israeli re killed over 100 Palestinians dur ing mass protests along the Gaza border, Malki added. "There is a culture of impunity in Israel for crimes against Palestinians," Malki said. "This referral is Pal estine's test to the interna tional mechanism of ac countability and respect for international law." The ICC has been con ducting a preliminary probe since 2015 into alleged crimes in the Palestinian territories, including Is rael's settlement policy and crimes allegedly committed by both sides in the 2014 Gaza conict. Tuesday's referral could speed up a decision on whether to open a full-blown investigation that could ultimately lead to the indictment of highranking Israelis. The move comes with Israeli-Palestinian relations at their lowest point in years in the aftermath of the U.S. Embassy move to Jerusalem and the recent bloodshed on the Gaza border. "This is a conduct that requires that we take action and this is why we moved in this regard," said Pales tinian Assistant Minister for Multilateral Affairs Ammar Hijazi, referring to recent Gaza violence. Israel has said it was de fending its border and ac cused Gaza's ruling Hamas militant group of using the unrest to carry out attempt ed attacks and of using civilians as human shields. In new violence, the Is raeli army said it targeted a Hamas observation post in Gaza with tank re after a group of militants briey entered Israel and set re to an Israeli military post. The army said there were no injuries on the Israeli side, and no additional details were immediately available. In response to Tuesday's move at the ICC, Israel said it took a "severe view" of the Palestinian request, calling it a "cynical" and "absurd" step. It accused the Pales tinians of violent incitement against Israel and exploit ing women and children as human shields. It also said the ICC had no jurisdiction in the case because Israel is not a member of the court. "Israel expects the ICC and its prosecutor not to yield to Palestinian pres sure, and stand rm against continued Palestinian efforts to politicize the court and to derail it from its mandate," the Israeli state ment said. Israel is not a member of the ICC, but its citizens can be charged by the court if they are suspected of com mitting grave crimes on the territory or against a national of a country that is a member. The ICC has recognized "Palestine" as a member state. The ICC is a court of last resort it is authorized to take on cases where national authorities cannot or will not launch prosecutions. Israel says it has investi gated actions by its forces during the Gaza conict, and says it has opened a number of investigations into the latest Gaza violence as well. But critics say the investigations rarely lead anywhere. "Israel acts in accor dance with independent and thorough judicial review mechanisms, betting a democratic state, and in ac cordance with international law," the Israeli statement said. While the ICC can indict suspects, it has no police force and has to rely on cooperation from member states to enforce arrest war rants. Richard Dicker, Director of the International Justice Program at Human Rights Watch, said Bensouda, the chief ICC prosecutor, should now "take steps to open a formal probe aimed at holding perpetrators of serious crimes to account and ensuring impartial and comprehensive justice consistent with the court's statute." The Palestinians appear to have an especially strong case in the matter of settle ments. In 2004, the United Nations' highest judicial organ, the International Court of Justice, ruled in an advisory opinion that the settlements breached inter national law. In late 2016, the U.N. Se curity Council also declared the settlements to be illegal. Over 600,000 Israelis now live in the West Bank and east Jerusalem ter ritories sought by the Palestinians as parts of their future state. Israel captured both territories from Jordan in the 1967 Mideast war. Under international law it is illegal to transfer populations out of or into occupied territory. Israel claims east Jerusa lem as an inseparable part of its capital though its annexation is not international recognized. Israel claims the West Bank is not occupied be cause it was captured from Jordan, not the Palestinians, and Jordan does not make a claim to the territory. Since the Palestinians never ruled the West Bank, Israel says this territory is disputed and its nal sta tus should be resolved in negotiations. It also claims that settlements can be torn down and therefore do not prejudice the nal status of the territory. It notes that in the case of Gaza, for instance, it uprooted all settlements there when it withdrew in 2005. Israel also captured Gaza in the 1967 war. While the Gaza with drawal removed some 8,000 settlers, the much larger population in the West Bank and east Jerusalem would be extremely difcult, if not impossible, to move.

Palestinians want international court to investigate IsraelAirlines caving to Beijing despite White House protestSHANGHAI (AP) Global airlines are obeying Beijing's demands to refer to Taiwan explicitly as a part of China, despite the White House's call this month to stand rm against such "Orwellian nonsense." The Associated Press found 20 carriers, including Air Canada, British Airways and Lufthansa, that now re fer to Taiwan, the self-ruled island that Beijing consid ers Chinese territory, as a part of China on their global websites. There are just three days left for dozens of foreign airlines to decide whether to comply with Beijing's orders, or face consequences that could cripple their China business, including legal sanctions. Many have already sided with Beijing. The spread of "Taiwan, China" on the drop-down menus and maps of airline websites represents an other victory for China's President Xi Jinping and his ruling Communist Party's nationalistic effort to force foreign companies to con form to their geopolitical vision, even in operations outside of China. Critics say China's incremental push to leverage its economic power to forge new international norms in this case regarding Taiwan's status creates worrying precedents. Beyond ery missives there is little Washington can do to unify a fractured global response and effectively push back against Beijing's demands. "What's at stake is that we're allowing a revisionist regime with a terrible track record on freedom of speech to dictate what we say and write in our own countries," said J. Michael Cole, a Taipei-based senior fellow with the China Policy Institute and the University of Nottingham's Taiwan studies program. "If Beijing does not encounter red lines, it can only keep asking for more." For Beijing, there is only one China and Taiwan, which has been a democ racy since the 1990s, is part of it. The People's Republic of China and Taiwan sepa rated during a civil war in 1949. Washington ofcially recognizes Beijing rather than Taipei, but despite the lack of formal ties, the U.S. is legally bound to respond to threats to Taiwan and is the island's main supplier of foreign military hardware. "We strongly object to China's efforts to bully, co erce, and threaten their way to achieving their political objectives," Taiwan's Min istry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement to the AP. "We call on all countries around the world to stand together to uphold the freedom of speech and freedom to do business. We also call on private rms to collectively reject China's unreasonable demands to change their designation of "Tai wan" to "Taiwan, China." Xi has warned a Taiwanese envoy that the issue of unication cannot be put off indenitely, and the People's Liberation Army has sent ghter planes near Taiwan's coast. As China steps up efforts to isolate Taiwan diplomatically, the list of multinationals that have bent to Beijing's will is long and growing. U.S. clothing retailer The Gap apologized this month for selling T-shirts with a map of China that omitted Taiwan and pulled the of fending merchandise from stores around the world. In January, Delta Airlines, Marriott, Zara and medical equipment maker Medtronic all publicly apologized for referring to Taiwan as a country. "You can't just say 'no,'" said Carly Ramsey, a regu latory risk specialist at Con trol Risks, a consultancy in Shanghai. "Increasingly, for situations like this, noncompliance is not an option if you want to do business in and with China." The day after Delta apol ogized for "emotional damage caused to the Chinese people," the Civil Aviation Administration of China published a notice on its website saying it requires foreign airlines operating in China to avoid referring to Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau as countries. Some foreign carriers began changing drop-down menus on their websites from "country" to "country/ region." But Beijing wanted more. On April 25, the Civil Aviation Administration of China sent a letter to 36 for eign airlines ordering them to explicitly refer to Taiwan as a part of China. The regu lator did not respond to re quests for comment. In a strongly-worded statement 10 days later, the White House called that demand "Orwellian nonsense." "China's efforts to export its censorship and political correctness to Americans and the rest of the free world will be resisted," it said. China's foreign ministry hit back the next day, say ing Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau are "inalienable" parts of China's terri tory and foreign companies operating in China "should respect China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, abide by China's laws and respect the national senti ment of the Chinese people." A bipartisan group of U.S. senators, led by Marco Rubio, a Florida Republi can, and Bob Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, of fered the airlines support. "As you weigh your response options, you should know that your government stands with you, and will strongly oppose attempts by China or any other foreign government to unilaterally dictate terms to an Ameri can company and exert sov ereignty over your internal business practices and the content of your website," the group of eight lawmak ers said in a letter dated last week. But a growing number of airlines have heeded Bei jing's call. The AP found that Air Canada, Lufthansa, British Airways, Finnair, Garuda Indonesia, Asiana Airlines, and Philippine Airlines all have changed the way they refer to Taiwan to bring their global websites in line with the Chinese Communist Party's vision. SAS airlines, Swissair, Malaysia Airlines, Cebu Pacic Air, Aeroot, Italy's Alitalia, Austrian Airlines, Air Mauritius, Eti had Airways, Spain's Iberia, Israel's EL AL, MIAT Mongolian Airlines and Russia's S7 Airlines all also refer to Taiwan as part of China, but it was not immediately clear how long they had been us ing that formulation. Lufthansa, British Air ways, Air Canada and Finnair said they abide by laws and regulations inter nationally and in the juris dictions in which they work. "This includes taking customs of the international clientele into consider ation," Lufthansa said in a statement, adding that we "seek your understanding for the situation." Finnair said a decision was taken to amend the website earlier this year and "in line with the gen eral view taken in Europe, Taiwan is not shown as an independent country in our list of destinations." Major U.S. carriers have not yet caved. United Air lines, American Airlines, Delta and Hawaiian Air lines, as well as Australia's Qantas Airways all of which received April letters from the regulator did not refer to Taiwan as part of China on their websites as of Tuesday. The airlines told AP they were reviewing the request. But the sweep of con cessions will likely make it harder to resist Beijing's call. "If they make individual corporate decisions, they will likely accede, individually but entirely, to Chinese demands," said Robert Daly, the director of the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. What Washington could do, he added, is "launch and sustain a global discus sion of the implications of Beijing's insistence on the worldwide jurisdiction of Chinese law. That kind of effort would require a com mitment to global leader ship and strong alliances that this administration has not yet demonstrated." In one apparent exception to Beijing's rules the na tional ag carrier Air China seems not to have gotten the regulator's memo. On its US site, Taipei is a part of "Taiwan, China." But its Taiwan website lists it as "Taipei, Taiwan." Air China did not imme diately respond to requests for comment.

CITIZEN TRIBUNE SportsEEE-2 Monday, May 21, 2018 LAS VEGAS (AP) Welcome to Impossible. Those words have been projected onto the ice in big, bold letters at T-Mobile Arena before each game during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Well, the Vegas Golden Knights are turning impossible into possible. The stunningly successful expansion squad is headed to the Stanley Cup Final after beating the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 on Sunday to win the Western Conference nal series in ve games. I remember eight months ago, when we won against Dallas (in the season opener), we had that unbelievable feeling, Vegas center Pierre-Edouard Bellemare said. Doesnt feel like were satised. Its a good feeling when you know the guys are excited for the next one. The Golden Knights are the third franchise in NHL history to clinch a berth in the Stanley Cup Final in its inaugural season, joining the Toronto Arenas in 1918 and St. Louis Blues in 1968. Vegas will play either Tampa Bay or Washington on hockeys biggest stage. The Lightning lead the Eastern Conference nal 3-2, but the Capitals host Game 6 on Monday night. Either way, were not going to be favorites, said Jonathan Marchessault, who leads Vegas with 18 points in the postseason. Thats been the case all year. Tampa has been the best team all year. Washington, (theyre) playing great hockey right now. Either way, were not going to be favorites, and thats ne with us. We went all year like that and were going to keep going. Hence, The Golden Mists tag. Nobody could have scripted Vegas, a 500-1 long shot at the start of the season, making the playoffs let alone earning a shot at Lord Stanleys Cup. But the Golden Knights, who nished fth in the league during the regular season, just knocked off the No. 2 team in the regular season in Winnipeg, which in the conference seminals knocked off the No. 1 team in the regular season, Nashville. Vegas clinched all three of its Western Conference series on the road, becoming the seventh team in NHL history to accomplish such a feat. Everybody on this team has something to prove, said Winnipeg native Ryan Reaves, who scored the winning goal Sunday in his hometown. We call ourselves The Golden Mists for a reason. Were doing a good job of proving everybody wrong. Just as they have all season, they are living in the moment. Vegas, which had just two players under contract at this time last year, heads into the nal round with a 12-3 playoff record after outscoring its Western Conference opponents 42-27. Its a credit to coach Gerard Gallants philosophy of having a well-conditioned, condent group of forwards who work well together, focus on short effective shifts, and exude condence on the ice all while, as he reiterates it daily, playing 200 feet of hockey. And while the Golden Knights havent necessarily been a high-scoring threat, scoring just three or fewer goals in 12 of their 15 playoff games, their defensemen have played exceptional to this point. Vegas has allowed the least amount of goals in the playoffs, among teams that have played 10 games. It was a stiing and disruptive defense that helped propel the Golden Knights past the Jets on Sunday, with their sixth win in eight road games during the postseason. Everybodys stepping up at different times during the season, said goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who has 12 wins, four shutouts, a .947 save percentage and 1.68 goals against average. Thats a big reason why weve been playing consistently. The key cog in Vegas engine has been Fleury, whose remarkable play has translated into a career-best postseason. He has allowed two or fewer goals in 10 of 15 playoff games, and is heading to the Stanley Cup nal for a third consecutive year. And whether he admits it or not, the 14-year veteran still bears the scars of being left exposed by Pittsburgh last summer after spending the rst 13 years of his career with the Penguins. Gallant, who remained coy about his teams aspirations during the regular season, made it clear the Golden Knights havent reached their goal. Its been an awesome ride so far, said Gallant, who some might also consider a mist after Florida red him following a road game at Carolina last season, then left him and his luggage on the curb outside PNC Arena. Were going to the Stanley Cup Final, but again, this isnt what we want. We want to win. Its great to win tonight and its great to be the (conference) champions, Gallant added, but thats not what were here for. Even as impossible as that all seemed just a few months ago. TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Jon Cooper didnt blame Andrei Vasilevskiy for the Tampa Bay Lightning digging a deep hole early in the Eastern Conference final. Two games and two losses brought plenty of criticism of the young Russian goaltender. Cooper wasnt thrilled about that. The questions were coming from the other side of the table, and I felt it was the questioning of Vasilevskiy, the Tampa Bay coach said. We dont. Hes been the guy for us. Vasilevskiy is the guy who turned the series around for the Lightning, who now lead the Capitals 3-2 and can eliminate Washington on the road in Game 6 on Monday night and move on to the Stanley Cup Final against the Vegas Golden Knights. After a 6.00 goals-against average and .839 save percentage in Games 1 and 2, he has a 2.00 GAA and .943 save percentage since as the series biggest difference-maker. Just tried to stay positive and play my game, Vasilevskiy said last week. Its very important, especially in the playoffs. Good or bad game, doesnt matter. Turn the page, start over again and again. Thats how you get success. Vasilevskiy has found plenty of success this season, his first as a full-time NHL starter. The 23-year-old is a Vezina Trophy finalist after leading the league with 44 wins and eight shutouts. But Vasilevskiy hasnt made it easy on himself. He rarely does. Cooper saw it during the 2016-17 season when Vasilevskiy struggled during a stretch of 10 consecutive starts when Ben Bishop was hurt and then again late this season when a swoon by him and the entire team almost cost Tampa Bay the Easts top seed. Vasilevskiy bounced back strong each time. His ability to be able to turn the page now and understand, You know what there might be a tough night for you, but Im going to go out the next night anyway and Ive got to be there for my team, I think thats where his growth process has really come in, Cooper said. The same happened between Games 2 and 3 in this series. The shy Vasilevskiy who has been reluctant to do interviews told a pool reporter he didnt make any adjustments from his worst games against the Capitals to his best. Somehow, he has looked like an entirely different goalie. Chants of Vasy! Vasy! filled Amalie Arena in Game 5 on Saturday night when he stopped 28 of 30 shots, and the highest praise was reserved for inside the Lightnings locker room. Hes a world class goaltender, thats what he does, defenseman Braydon Coburn said. He battles hard every day in practice all season long, and hes raised his game in the playoffs here. No doubt his teammates have improved their play in front of Vasilevskiy, with defenseman Anton Stralman saying: We always feel like we owe him. But against a star-studded Capitals team led by countrymen Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov, Vasilevskiy had to raise his game to give Tampa Bay any chance. Lightning captain Steven Stamkos said confidence in Vasilevskiy never wavered, and he has showed them on the ice evidence of what theyve seen all season. He just expects a lot, Stamkos said. You see his work ethic every day in practice. You guys dont get to see what goes on in the room, but his mental preparation, his physical preparation, he wants to be the best all the time. He doesnt want to give up a goal at all, including in practice. Thats the mentality he has and thats why hes so good. If the Capitals can crack Vasilevskiy like they did the first two times, there will be a Game 7 on Wednesday night at Tampa Bay. But theyd better figure that out and get an even better game from Braden Holtby because the Lightning are 11-0 in the playoffs when scoring three-plus goals. That record is thanks to Vasilevskiy, who doesnt like cameras but loves playoff hockey. Its definitely a fun time, he said. Lot of emotions. Different hockey. Its pretty fun to play. Just excitement level is pretty high. A different season.Vasilevskiy turns East final around for LightningStanley Cup Final bound Vegas turning impossible into possible APThe Vegas Golden Knights mob goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury after defeating the Winnipeg Jets during NHL Western Conference Finals, Game 5, in Winnipeg, Sunday.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) The United States on Monday issued a steep list of demands to be included in a nuclear treaty with Iran to replace the deal scuttled by President Donald Trump and threatened "the stron gest sanctions in history" if Iran doesn't change course. Drawing sharp contrasts with the 2015 deal, Secre tary of State Mike Pompeo said a stronger pact should require that Iran stop en richment of uranium, which was allowed within strict limitations under the previ ous deal. Iran would also have to walk away from core pillars of its foreign policy, including its in volvement in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and Afghanistan. "This list may seem long to some, but it is simply a reection of the massive scope of Iranian malign behavior," Pompeo said. "America did not create this need for changed behavior. Iran did." Pompeo vowed that Trump's approach would ensure "Iran has no possible path to a nuclear weapon, ever." As he called for a better agreement to constrain Iran's activities, he said the U.S. would "apply unprec edented nancial pressure" to bring Tehran back to the table. "These will end up being the strongest sanctions in history by the time we are complete," Pompeo said at the conservative Heritage Foundation in his rst major policy speech since tak ing over as top diplomat. At the same time, Pom peo offered Iran a series of dramatic potential U.S. concessions if it agrees to make "major changes." Under a new agreement, the U.S. would be willing to lift all sanctions, restore full diplo matic and commercial ties with Iran, and even support the modernization of its economy, Pompeo said. "It is America's hope that our labors toward peace and security will bear fruit for the long-suffering people of Iran," Pompeo said. Still, Pompeo's list of 12 requirements included many that Iran is highly un likely to consider. He said Iran must allow nuclear in spectors "unqualied access to all sites throughout the country," Pompeo said, al luding to military sites that were off-limits under the 2015 deal except under spe cic circumstances. To that end, he also said Iran must declare all previous efforts to build a nuclear weapon, reopening an issue that the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency has already deemed a closed matter. Pompeo also demanded that Iran cease from a range of activities throughout the Middle East that have long drawn the ire of the U.S. and its allies. He said Iran must end support for Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen, "withdraw all forces" from Syria, halt support for its ally Hezbollah and stop threatening Israel. Iran must also "release all U.S. citizens" missing in Iran or being held on "spuri ous charges," he said. Taken together, the de mands would constitute a wholesale transformation by Iran's government, and they hardened the percep tion that what Trump's ad ministration really seeks is a change in the Iranian regime. A longtime Iran hawk, Pompeo has spoken positively about regime change in the past, but in his conrmation hearing last month he sought to soften that stance. Laying out Trump's new approach Monday, Pompeo said he couldn't put a time line on how long the strategy might take. "At the end of the day, the Iranian people will get to make their choice about their leadership," Pompeo said. "If they make the deci sion quickly, that would be wonderful. If they choose not to do so, we will stay hard at this until we achieve the outcomes that I set for ward today." In another departure from the Obama administration's approach, Pompeo said that "a treaty is our preferred way to go." Former Presi dent Barack Obama did not seek a Senate-ratied treaty with Iran because of the dim prospects for getting approval from a Republi can-run Congress. Pompeo's speech came after Trump earlier this month infuriated U.S. allies in Europe by withdrawing from the 2015 deal bro kered by President Barack Obama, Iran and world powers. Europeans allies had pleaded with Trump not to scuttle that deal and are now scrambling to keep the deal alive even without the U.S. But the Trump adminis tration has held out hope that those same allies will put aside that frustration and work with the U.S. to ramp pressure back up on Iran through sanctions in a bid to bring Tehran back to the negotiating table for a stronger deal. Pompeo said he under stood that Trump's decision "will pose nancial and economic difculties for a number of our friends." But he warned them that the U.S. planned to fol low through with threats to punish European com panies that continue doing business with Iran that is allowed under the deal but will violate reimposed U.S. sanctions. "I know our allies in Eu rope may try to keep the old nuclear deal going with Tehran. That is their deci sion to make," Pompeo said. "They know where we stand." CITIZEN TRIBUNE PoliticsMonday, May 21, 2018 EEE-3 APSecretary of State Mike Pompeo speaks at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative public policy think tank, in Washington, Monday, May 21, 2018. Pompeo issued a steep list of demands Monday that he said should be included in a nuclear treaty with Iran to replace the Obama-era deal, threatening the strongest sanctions in history. US issues steep list of demands for nuclear treaty with IranTrump to DOJ: Investigate whether FBI infiltrated campaignWASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump said he will "demand" that the Justice Department investigate whether the FBI inltrated his presidential campaign, an extraordinary order that came hours be fore his legal team said the special counsel indicated the investigation into the presi dent could be concluded by September. Trump tweeted Sunday: "I hereby demand, and will do so ofcially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ inltrated or sur veilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes and if any such demands or re quests were made by people within the Obama Adminis tration!" Trump's demand puts fur ther pressure on the Justice Department, which later Sunday asked its inspector general to expand an exist ing investigation into the Russia probe by examining whether there was any im proper politically motivated surveillance. It comes as the White House tries to combat the threat posed by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into potential ties between Russia and the Trump campaign. The president's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said Muel ler recently shared a time table that suggested his probe could end by Sept. 1 if Trump were to sit for an interview in July, which is the legal team's new working plan. "We said to them, 'If we're going to be interviewed in July, how much time until the report gets issued?'" Giuliani told The Associated Press on Sunday, referring to the report Mueller is expect ed to issue to Congress at the conclusion of his investigation. "They said September, which is good for everyone, because no one wants this to drag into the midterms." Giuliani said he did not want a repeat of what happened in 2016, when FBI Director James Comey an nounced in the campaign's nal days that he was reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, a deci sion Democrats believe cost Clinton the race. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York, also said Mueller's team indicated that the entire probe could end by Septem ber, not just its investigation into potential obstruction of justice. "This would be the culmi nation of the investigation into the president," Giuliani said. The special counsel's ofce did not respond to a re quest for comment. It is not certain that Trump will sit for an interview with Mueller, though the president has publicly said he would. Giuliani said a de cision would not be made until after Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, which is slated for June 12. Giuliani said Sunday the two sides "were getting closer" to agreeing on the parameters on a potential interview but would not put the odds of it happening at better than 50/50. Giuliani's apparent attempt to publicly pressure Mueller on the timeline amid interview negotiations came just hours after Trump's demand for a new inquiry, which moved beyond his usual blustery accusations of institutional wrongdoing and into the realm of applying presidential pressure on the Justice Department, a move few of his predecessors have made. Trump made the order amid days of public venting about the special counsel investigation, which he has deemed a "witch hunt" that he says has yielded no evi dence of collusion between his campaign and Russia. In response, the Justice De partment moved Sunday to defuse a growing confronta tion with the White House by asking its watchdog to in vestigate whether there was inappropriate surveillance. It was not immediately clear if that move would satisfy Trump, or if any fur ther demands could lead to a confrontation with FBI Director Christopher Wray or Deputy Attorney Gen eral Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the Mueller investigation. Rosenstein released a statement Sunday saying, "If anyone did inltrate or surveil participants in a presidential campaign for inappropriate purposes, we need to know about it and take appropriate action." The Justice Department probe had begun in March at the request of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and congressional Republicans. Sessions and the lawmakers had urged Inspector General Michael Horowitz to review whether FBI and Justice Department ofcials abused their surveillance powers by using information compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British spy, and paid for by Democrats to justify monitoring Carter Page, a former campaign adviser to Trump. Horowitz said his ofce will look at those claims as well as communications be tween Steele and DOJ and FBI ofcials. Trump did not elaborate on the promised "demand," which he included in one of a series of tweets he sent throughout the day Sun day. On Saturday, Trump tweeted, "If the FBI or DOJ was inltrating a campaign for the benet of another campaign, that is a really big deal." He said only the release or review of docu ments the House Intelligence Committee is seeking from the Justice Department "can give conclusive answers." Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, called Trump's claim of an embedded spy "nonsense." "His 'demand' DOJ investigate something they know to be untrue is an abuse of power, and an effort to dis tract from his growing legal problems," Schiff tweeted. "Never mind that DOJ has warned that lives and alli ances are at risk. He doesn't care." Trump's extraordinary demand of the Justice Department alarmed many observers, who felt it not only violated presidential pro tocol but also could have a chilling effect on federal law enforcement or its use of in formants. Giuliani defended the president's actions. "As the president's lawyer, I can't be concerned on what effect it may have," he said. "To me, there's not much of a difference between an infor mant's ongoing collection of information in a surreptitious way or a spy. "If this guy was an FBI implant into the campaign," Giuliani said, "that's as of fensive as Watergate."

Page E12, SHAFTSBURY, Vt. (AP) On a warm June morning in 1922, Robert Frost sat down at his dining room table in southern Vermont and wrote "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," one of his most famous poems. That house, including the 7-acre grounds with rugged old stone walls, a barn and some of the heirloom apple trees from Frost's orchard, is now open again as a mu seum under the ownership of Bennington College. "This was a very impor tant property for him and an important time in his life," said Megan Mayhew Bergman, director of the Robert Frost Stone House Museum at Bennington College. He hit his prime as a poet here, she said. Frost's poems, with their simple rhymes, stories, evocations of rural life and sometimes dark allusions, were immensely popular in the 20th century. They were memorized by school chil dren and recited at countless graduations. The rst line of "Stopping By Woods" "Whose woods these are I think I know" and the nal, haunting line, "And miles to go before I sleep" are instantly familiar to millions of Americans. Frost bought the Dutch Colonial stone house built in 1769 in South Shafts bury and moved his family there with plans to be an apple farmer, after leaving a teaching post at Amherst College. He found it easier to write when he was farm ing, according to Frost bi ographer Jay Parini. He and his family lived there for nine years, with Frost winning the rst of his four Pulitzers during that time. "I have moved a good part of the way to a stone cottage on a hill at South Shaftsbury in southern Ver mont on the New York side near the historic town of Bennington where if I have any money left after repair ing the roof in the spring I mean to plant a new Garden of Eden with a thousand apple trees of some unfor bidden variety," wrote Frost in a letter to a friend on Oct. 23, 1920, according to Pa rini's book, "Robert Frost A Life." The simple stone and timber house hasn't changed much since then. The museum has displayed photographs of Frost and his family, a facsimile of the "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening" manuscript and woodcuts by artist J.J. Lankes, who illustrated Frost's books. The house now has Frost quotations painted on some walls, including his epitaph, "I had a lover's quarrel with the world," from his tomb stone where he is buried in the First Congregational Church cemetery in nearby Bennington. Outside, many of the heirloom apple trees from Frost's orchard have toppled in wind storms in recent years. One of the remaining gray gnarled trunks stands in the backyard with new growth angling toward the sky. The museum has taken shoots from the tree and is working with an heirloom orchard to propagate them. "We think it's really im portant to preserve the his toric landscape and that connection between the landscape and the work it inspired. Because it's so articulated here," said Bergman, who also teaches literature at Bennington, which is incorporating the museum into students' edu cation. Some students have created a three-dimensional visual of the property using photography, surveying and mapping tools and Frost's desk objects. Frost gave the house to his son Carol, and then moved to a farm across the road. Carol Frost, who struggled with depression as his father sometimes did, took his own life at the house in 1940. The house stayed in the family and lat er was privately owned. It was opened as a museum in 2002. Bennington College acquired the house from the nonprot Friends of Robert Frost last year. The museum plans to have poetry readings at the Stone House, an outdoor lm series and bluegrass concerts on the grounds. "We want to be involved with the community and we want to be involved with supporting the arts and talk ing about poetry and making poetry accessible," said Bergman. "We live in a ru ral, slightly economically depressed community. It's important, I think, to make poetry and the arts acces sible." If You Go...

The museum now owned by Bennington College reopened this spring.'Miles to go before I sleep'Robert Frost museum reopensToxic cloud caused by Hawaii volcano lava emerges over oceanPAHOA, Hawaii (AP) White plumes of acid and ex tremely ne shards of glass billowed into the sky over Hawaii as molten rock from Kilauea volcano poured into the ocean, creating yet another hazard from an eruption that began more than two weeks ago: A toxic steam cloud. Authorities on Sunday warned the public to stay away the cloud that formed by a chemical reaction when lava touched seawater. Further upslope, lava continued gushing out of large cracks in the ground in resi dential neighborhoods in a rural part of the Big Island. The molten rock made riv ers that bisected forests and farms as it meandered toward the coast. The rate of sulfur dioxide gas shooting from the ground ssures tripled, leading Hawaii County to repeat warn ings about air quality. At the volcano's summit, two ex plosive eruptions unleashed clouds of ash. Winds carried much of it toward the southwest. Joseph Kekedi, an orchid grower who lives and works about 3 miles (5 kilometers) from where lava dropped into the sea, said the ow luckily did not head toward him. At one point, it was about a mile (asterisk)1.6 kilometers) upslope from his property in the coastal community of Kapoho. Residents can only stay informed and be ready to get out of the way, he said. "Here's nature reminding us again who's boss," Kekedi said. Scientists said the steam clouds at the spots where lava entered the ocean were laced with hydrochloric acid and ne glass particles that can ir ritate skin and eyes and cause breathing problems. The lava haze called "laze" from the plume spread as far as 15 miles (24 kilometers) west of where the lava met the ocean on the Big Island's southern coast. It was just offshore and running parallel to the coast, said U.S. Geological Survey scientist Wendy Stovall. Scientists said the acid in the plume was about as cor rosive as diluted battery acid. The glass was in the form of ne glass shards. Getting hit by it might feel like being sprinkled with glitter. "If you're feeling sting ing on your skin, go inside," Stovall said. Authorities warned that the plume could shift direction if the winds changed. The Coast Guard said it was enforcing a safety zone extending 984 feet (300 meters) around the ocean entry point. Coast Guard Lt. Cmdr. John Bannon said in a state ment Sunday that "getting too close to the lava can result in serious injury or death." Gov. David Ige told reporters in Hilo that the state was monitoring the volcano and keeping people safe. "Like typical eruptions and lava ows, it's really allow ing Madam Pele to run its course," he said, referring to the Hawaiian goddess of vol canoes and re. Ige said he was thankful that the current lava ows did not pose a threat to homes and hoped it would stay that way. On Saturday, the eruption claimed its rst major injury when a man was struck in the leg by a ying piece of lava. David Mace, a spokesman for the Federal Emergency Management Agency who was helping Hawaii County respond to the disaster, did not have further details about the man's injuries or his condition. Kilauea has burned some 40 structures, including two dozen homes, since it began erupting in people's back yards in the Leilani Estates neighborhood on May 3. About 2,000 people have evacuated their homes, in cluding 300 who were stay ing in shelters. In recent days, the lava began to move more quickly and emerge from the ground in greater volume. Scientists said that's because the lava that rst erupted was magma left over from a 1955 erupted that had been stored in the ground for the past six de cades. The molten rock that be gan emerging over the past few days was from magma that has recently moved down the volcano's eastern ank from one or two craters that sit further upslope the Puu Oo crater and the summit crater. The new lava is hotter, moves faster and has spread over a wider area. Early Monday, a small eruption occurred at the Kilauea summit, producing an ash plume that reached about 7,000 feet (2,134 me ters). Ofcials said wind carried the ash plume to the southwest, toward the com munities of Wood Valley, Pa hala, Naalehu and Waiohinu. Scientists have said they do not know how long the eruption will last. The vol cano has opened more than 20 vents, including four that have merged into one large crack. It has been gushing lava high into the sky and sending a river of molten rock toward the ocean at about 300 yards (274 meters) per hour. Hawaii tourism ofcials have stressed that most of the Big Island remains unaf fected by the eruption and is open for business.

Thursday, May 24, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E13 CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) A growing roster of nations condemned Venezuela's presidential election Monday and threatened to ramp up diplomatic and econom ic pressure on President Nicolas Maduro's already embattled government. A coalition of 14 na tions from throughout the Americas, including Bra zil, Mexico and Colom bia, pledged to scale back diplomatic relations with Venezuela and urge inter national organizations not to issue Venezuela any new credit. Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy decried the vote as not respecting "minimal democratic standards" and vowed to consult with European coun terparts on new measures in hopes of "easing the suffering of Venezuelans." The outcry followed U.S. condemnation even before the pro-government National Election Council declared Maduro the overwhelming winner in Sunday's vote, which drew the lowest participation on record for a presidential election in decades. Most opposition organizers had urged Venezu elans not to participate in an election from which the most popular anti-government leaders had been banned. Leaders with the nation's fragmented opposition declared the wide spread abstention a silent but forceful protest and vowed to regroup moving forward. "It's evident we are the resounding majority those who want a new Ven ezuela," said Henrique Capriles, one of Venezuela's most prominent opposition leaders. "It's evident those who are in power can't mobilize and don't have the support they once enjoyed." The Election Council announced that with more than 92 percent of polling stations reporting, Maduro won nearly 68 percent of the votes, beating his nearest challenger Henri Falcon by more than 40 points. As the results were be ing announced, residents of downtown Caracas banged pots in protest just a few blocks from where Maduro supporters were celebrating. Falcon accused the government of dirty tricks, including buying votes of poor voters who have been hurt by widespread food shortages and hyperination in what was once Latin America's wealthiest nation. The election "without any doubt lacks legitima cy and we categorically refuse to recognize this process," Falcon told supporters minutes before the results were announced, vowing to ght on instead of joining a growing list of beleaguered anti-government politicians who've ed into exile of late. A senior U.S. ofcial said Sunday the Trump administration might press ahead on threats of impos ing crippling oil sanctions and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned "sham elections change nothing." U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, who has repeat edly pushed for a tougher U.S. response on Venezu ela, declared in Spanish on Twitter that "now there is no doubt that there is not an electoral exit." Falcon was joined in his demand for a new elec tion by third-place nisher Javier Bertucci, who won around 11 percent of the vote. Bertucci, a TV evangelist who handed out soup at his campaign rallies, stopped short of challenging the results, partly blaming what he called a mistaken opposition boy cott that led to a turnout of around 46 percent the lowest in a presiden tial race in two decades of revolution. Turnout in the three previous presidential elections averaged 79 per cent. But Falcon said he none theless favors a new elec tion soon and urged Maduro to do the courageous thing and desist from run ning. If Maduro presses forward, he warned, Venezuela will explode before his new six-year term is scheduled to begin in Jan uary. A social crisis years in the making has worsened as Venezuela's oil production the source of al most all of its foreign in come has collapsed to the lowest level in decades and nancial sanctions by the Trump administration have made it impossible for the government to re negotiate its debts. More than 1 million people have ed the country in the past two years and 14,000 per cent ination has crushed the minimum wage to less than $2 a month. Maduro, 55, immedi ately called for dialogue with his opponents and put the best face on what ana lysts said were disappoint ing results underscoring how vulnerable his hold on power remains. Despite energetic campaigning, his overall vote haul slipped by 1.6 million from 2013, when he was rst elected after his mentor Hugo Chavez's death from cancer. But he showed no sign of replaying Sunday's vote. "We will be the most powerful and largest political force in Venezuela for a long time," he told a festive crowd of supporters who poured into the grounds of the presidential palace to celebrate. "It doesn't faze me when they say I'm a dictator." He promised to spend the next two years before scheduled congressional elections repairing an economy he says has been badly damaged by maas backed by Colombia and the U.S. Both of Maduro's op ponents accused electoral authorities of ignoring blatant violations before the vote and on election day. Falcon said that at 86 percent of voting centers, ruling party activists set up so-called "Red Points" where they used cell phones to scan QR codes on government-issued "Fatherland Cards." Some poor cardholders in Caracas there are 16.5 million nationwide said they hoped Maduro would deliver on his cam paign promise of a "prize" to those who demonstrated their loyalty. Maduro accused his opponents of trying to "demonize" a program intended to ad dress the social crisis and not assert political control. Luis Emilio Rondon, the sole opposition voice on the electoral council, backed Falcon and Bertuc ci's claims of irregularities and said he too refused to recognize the results. National Electoral Council President Tibisay Lucena acknowledged a handful of complaints, but insisted they were minor compared to past elec tions. "The people of Venezu ela have made their pro nouncement and we ask everyone, nationally and international, to respect the results," she said. Opposition leaders said the lifeless voting centers were evidence that Ven ezuelans heeded their call to abstain from voting in an election they contended was certain to be rigged in Maduro's favor. "This was a farce by a dictator that wants to stay in power without popular support," said lawmak er Juan Pablo Guanipa, speaking on behalf of the newly created Broad Front coalition that backed the stay-at-home strategy. Opinion polls say the overwhelming majority of Venezuelans distrust the electoral council. Of cial turnout gures in last year's elections for a constitutional assembly, which the opposition also boycotted, were inated by at least 1 million votes, according to the company that provided technology for Venezuela's electronic voting machines for more than a decade. But despite the unlevel playing eld and concerns of fraud, some government critics nonetheless questioned the wisdom of not participating in an election that looked to be its best chance in years to defeat Chavismo. "If you're sick and the doctor gives you few days to live, you don't lie in bed waiting to die. You seek treatment," said Nayra Martinez, a city employee in the wealthy Caracas district of Chacao who decided to buck her party's call to abstain. "That's what we need to do with our coun try. Venezuela is very sick and we the people are the medicine."
