Learn ve new nancial tips to making upgrades to the house. By Rachel Christian Staff Writer e city of St. Cloud is growing faster than any other city in a four-county radius, according to new U.S. Census Bureau numbers released May 24. From 2010 to 2017, the towns population boomed 36 percent, adding 13,440 residents. That makes St. Cloud the fastest growing city in Osceola, Orange, Seminole and Polk counties. St. Clouds growth spurt outpaced the next city on the list, Ocoee, by 7 percent. Apopka in Orange County came in third, with a 23 percent growth increase. The city of Kissimmee grew 19 percent, according to the numbers. St. Cloud adds 794 acres to city limits But the city is growing in more ways than one. St. Cloud added about 1.75 square miles of mostly vacant unincorporated county land from 2010 to 2017. And last week, the City Council voted to grow the geographical area even more, by annexing an additional 1.19 square miles, or about 784 acres, into the city. The move was made ahead of a massive upcoming development project called Tohoqua, which will span lands south of Neptune Road and north of the Twin Oaks Conservation Area. Discussions have circled for years over the mixed-use planned community that is set to add 2,216 single family homes, 1,004 apartment units, a high school, a K-12 charter school, a re station and 296,000 square feet of Osceola Health Dept.: Be cautious of measles By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Over the past week, four conrmed measles cases have been reported in the state, according to ocials at the Florida Department of Health. All four cases involved individuals who traveled to or exposed people from several Florida counties to the respiratory disease, which can cause fever, cough, rash and even death. No cases have been reported in Osceola County, but ocials at the local health department are urging residents to proceed with caution all the same. At this point, were just promoting awareness, said Nathaly Acosta, tuberculosis/epidemiology and refugee health program manager for the Florida Department of Health in Osceola County. ere is no need for panic, just caution and awareness. Acosta said all four reported instances have been linked back to someone bringing the disease from a foreign country and then spreading it to others. With school out and summer in full swing, the rate of international travel is elevated, and so is the chance of contracting measles, Acosta said. Internationally, there have been measles cases reported in Europe, Ukraine, Afghanistan, Taiwan and Venezuela. Outbreaks of measles in the U.S. have decreased dramatically since the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine rolled out in the 1960s. In the decade before 1963 when a vaccine first became available, nearly all children got measles by the time they were 15 years old, according to the Center for Disease Control. It is estimated 3 to 4 million people in the United States were infected each year. It resulted in an estimated 400 to 500 deaths a year, 48,000 hospitalizations and 1,000 cases of brain damage. Measles outbreaks have resurfaced in recent years across the country, and most people who contracted the illness were unvaccinated, according to the St. Cloud population spikes 36% in 7 years LOG ONFollow us at https:// www.facebook.com/ osceolanewsgazette FOLLOWFollow us on Osceola News-Gazette@ OsceolaNews TOP STORIESLOCAL City Council makes oer for land to develop new park.

(FS286.26) In accordance with Florida Statues 286.0105: Any person wishing to appeal any decision made by the Planning Advisory Board with respect to any matter considered at such meeting or hearing will need a record of the proceedings, and for such purposes may need to ensure that a verbatim record of the proceeding is made, which record includes the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is made. 060218.SNG MEASLESContinued from Page 1 Center for Disease Control. From Jan. 1 to April 21, 2018, 63 people from 16 states, including California, New York and Illinois, were reported to have measles. Acosta said the last conrmed case in Osceola County occurred in 2011, when a 1-year-old girl contracted the disease. The MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) shot is not a 100 percent guarantee that someone wont possibly contract measles if theyre exposed to it, Acosta said. But it is extremely eective. Even if someone does happen to contract it, the chances are much greater that it will be a much milder form. Measles is extremely contagious and typically begins with a high fever, cough and runny nose. Two or three days aer symptoms begin, tiny white spots may appear inside the mouth, followed by a distinctive looking rash. The rash usually first appears on the face at the hairline and spreads downward to the neck, arms, legs and feet. When the rash appears, a persons fever may spike to more than 104 degrees. If someone thinks they have contracted measles, they should visit their doctor or a hospital. By Rachel Christian Staff Writer The St. Cloud City Council voted to make an oer of up to $250,000 on a one-acre parcel of land last ursday, despite misgivings from the citys planning and zoning director. At a previous meeting, Councilwoman Linette Matheny suggested the council purchase the lot, centrally located at 901 Virginia Ave., and turn it into a neighborhood park. The land was one of three properties marked as surplus by the Osceola County School District, Matheny told fellow board members when she first proposed the idea May 10. But Andre Anderson, director of the St. Cloud Planning and Zoning Department, did not share Mathenys enthusiasm for the idea when he brought his recommendation forward to the council on May 24. Anderson said it would be premature to purchase the acre lot while the citys Parks and Recreation Department is still constructing its master plan design. He also displayed a graphic showing lands the city intends to buy for future neighborhood and pocket parks. Anderson added that state redevelopment incentives recently became available in the area and suggested that the property remain on the tax rolls to benet the city. It was a sentiment supported by Councilman Donny Shroyer, who strongly rejected Mathenys idea from the start. e parcel was formerly leased by the city for years, with intentions to plant a community garden, Anderson said. An old cannery building currently sits on the property. Despite Andersons recommendations not to pursue an oer on the site, Matheny pressed forward. A master plan is still just a plan, she said about the Parks and Recreation Department document. Its an idea, its a guiding document. Its not the BibleI feel like make hay while the sun shines here. is is an opportunity. The councilwoman read a letter submitted by St. Cloud resident Valerie Anderson that spoke to a lack of parks within a 10mile walking distance of the south side of 10th Street heading to Virginia Avenue. e letter also claimed that many of the smaller parks in the area often fill to capacity and lack certain key amenities, such as tables and benches. Council member Dave Askew, who had showed support for Matheny from the beginning, pointed out that houses currently sit on many of the parcels Anderson had designated as future park sites on his map. When do we actually see us acquiring any of this property at all? Askew asked Anderson. I mean, the property would need to go up for sale. ese look like whole blocks, so we would have to get at least four houses on each one of those blocks. Anderson called the map of proposed parks a market driven plan. It would be up to the market to dictate, the city planner replied. Weve put a plan in place to guide that market. Askew seemed unsatised with the answer, choosing to take Mathenys make hay while the sun shines attitude instead. Askew confirmed the minimum bid oer on the property was $146,000. So, we could possibly get half a block for $146,000, Askew said. But if were not in the game, theres no bid. Shroyers motion to deny the purchase of the property did not pass. Mathenys motion to have the city manager make a competitive offer to the School District passed 3-2, with Mayor Nathaniel Blackwell lending his support. A maximum bid oer of $250,000 was then approved by the council, along with a budget amendment to allow for the purchase. St. Cloud makes land offer for future city park PHOTO/CITY OF ST.

Residents will notice a new, louder sound when the system is activated. Installation was expected to be completed last month.

Saturday, June 2, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 3 FOODContinued from Page 1 Now imagine that you lived on a xed-income or that you and your family struggle to cover dayto-day expenses two scenarios that describe thousands of locals. Most all residents of the county are workingclass folks with a median family household income of $44,500. Roughly 20 percent of Osceola Countys 324,000 resident live below the federal poverty line. The most needy individuals and families in the county rely on weekly, if not daily, food assistance from government and nongovernment sources. So what happens to those who cant ll their fridge or buy extra supplies in preparation for a storm. ey will still need the food they typically rely on and in addition, likely even food, water and other emergency supplies. Any kind of natural disaster hits low-income people the most, said Greg Higgerson, vice president of development for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. It takes working-class people a lot longer to get back on their feet a lot of the time. And food is one of the things they shouldnt have to worry about. Second Harvest part of the Feeding America Network of Foodbanks works with the food industry and the public and distributes as much excess food in society as possible. It works with 550 agencies in Florida, 30 in Osceola County. Established in 1983, Second Harvest is an umbrella organization that partners with smaller, local nonprots to collect and distribute uneaten foods from grocery stores, restaurants and farms throughout Central Florida on a daily basis. e organization also works with Feeding America, the largest federal domestic hunger relief program in the U.S., which brings in donations from major U.S. food corporations such as Kraft and ConAgra. Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a key hub for transporting food into and out of Florida during natural disasters as needed. e food banks stocks are shelved early in the summer and held in a reserve during hurricane season. Were blessed with food wealth. If we get hit, those resources can be marshalled quickly and sent to us, which we saw in (Hurricane) Irma as well as the hurricanes in 2004, Higgerson said. We have the resources on tap. Along with feeding hungry folks every day and during disaster, Second Harvest also partners with regional non-governmental first-responders, such as the Red Cross and the Salvation Army. Now with a few disasters under our belt, the public has begun to recognize and support us more. We can leverage $9 worth of meals from a $1 donation, he said. ST. CLOUDContinued from Page 1 commercial development space, among other features. e project didnt need approval from St. Cloud ocials; it already received the green light from Osceola County months ago. As Mayor Nathan Blackwell put it during a board meeting, If we dont annex this property, its going forward regardless. Instead, the decision before city council members May 24 the same day new census population numbers were released was whether to fold Tohoqua into St. Cloud limits. To annex or not to annex? The decision to expand St. Cloud by almost 800 acres came down to a numbers game: how much did the city stand to gain from property taxes and other fees associated with the Tohoqua project versus what it would cost the city to supply services like fire rescue and water to the area in question. Stephen McDonald, chief economist of Community Solutions Group, a division of GAI Consultants, crunched those numbers. He estimates that adding those 784 acres could provide an annual surplus of $600,000 in revenue for St. Cloud, or $18 million over a 30-year period. Most of the money St. Cloud stands to take in comes from taxes on elevated property values in Tohoqua, McDonald explained. e average property value for a home built in St. Cloud prior to 2009 is about $76,543, he said, while the average for one built in 2016 was $153,297. McDonald estimates the value of an average home in Tohoqua to be roughly $187,236. You may have to put some dollars out before the revenues come in, the economist said, but at the end of the day, it is a very scally positive scenario for the city. e council ultimately chose to voluntarily annex the property by a vote of 3-2. Stepfather arrested for sexual battery of stepdaughterOsceola County Sheris Oce deputies arrested a stepfather who was accused of sexually battering his stepdaughter. On Wednesday, deputies began investigating the sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12. e child said her stepfather has been sexually battering her for the past four months, according to a Sheris Oce report. e incidents occurred in both Osceola and Orange counties. Detectives from the Osceola County Sheris Oce, as well as the Orange County Sheris Oce, responded and continued the investigation. Ortiz was cooperative with detectives and admitted to the allegations, the report stated. Ortiz was arrested for ve counts of capital sexual battery, six counts of lewd/lascivious molestation and two counts of lewd/lascivious exhibition. Ortiz is facing additional charges for the incidents that occurred in the jurisdiction of Orange County. Anyone with information regarding this case or any additional victims, is asked to contact the Osceola County Sheriffs Office at 407-348-2222 or Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS, where information leading to an arrest may be eligible for a $1,000 reward. Pedestrian hit, killed by Kissimmee driver A Kissimmee man, on Monday, hit and killed a pedestrian who was trying to cross a road in Orange County. According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Alberto De La Cruz, 33, was driving a 2012 Honda Civic southbound on State Road 535 at about 10:34 p.m. The pedestrian, who was not identied pending notication of next of kin, attempted to cross from east to west at neither a crosswalk or intersection, the report stated. De La Cruz was unable to avoid the man and struck him. He was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead. 060218.SNG

Another Mothers Day is in the books, which means dads nationwide can begin preparing their perfect day wish lists. My Fathers Day requests always include the phrase multiple, uninterrupted naps. is year, however, my desires will also feature an item that, if my wife relents and purchases it, will catapult me into the cool dad stratosphere, should such a galaxy exist. Fellow dads in my hood will flock to me like the preteen all the other kids yearn to hang out with, not because of his personality but because he owns a treehouse. Every weekend my phone will blow up with texts, all asking the same question: Wheres the donkey? I am referring to the latest craze in beer dispensing a four-legged pack animal carrying two saddlebags that become coolers when lled with ice and a 12-pack of suds. Beer burros, also known as beer donkeys, are fast becoming the rage at weddings, corporate events and themed parties. I recently encountered my rst such donkey at a Cinco de Mayo bash thrown by a nancial services organization. Ive even been asked to go to golf courses and have the donkey follow the guys around as they golf, said Tia Cook, operations manager at Walking M Farms in Higley, Ariz. Besides providing petting zoo animals and pony rides for kids, Cook owns four mini-donkeys, each weighing between 275 and 300 pounds, that will stand at attention for up to two hours as party guests help themselves to beer, tequila shots or whatever beverage is stored in the donkeys panniers. Weve served juice boxes and water too, said Cook, stressing that beer donkeys can be altered for kids parties. I just want one at the ready aer I mow my lawn. I wont dress it in a Mexican sombrero, western bandana or other attire Cooks donkeys wear, depending on the event. And I promise to love it unconditionally, provided it faithfully does its beer donkey duty and keeps me from having to unfold myself from the couch and amble to the kitchen each time I want a cold beer. For years, Ive tried to train my dog to open the refrigerator and fetch one for me, but that behavior only exists in Super Bowl commercials. e donkey would be my salvation. So, what do you think? I asked my wife. Weve got plenty of yard space. Ill even clean up the donkey poop. Seems a small price to pay. Speaking of price, exactly how much is this Fathers Day gi? my wife asked. Well, the lady in Arizona charges $350 an hour and up. So, Im guessing... She cut me o. Im guessing youre getting barbecue tools for Fathers Day. Undeterred, I oered to share the animal. When your girlfriends come over, you can turn it into a chardonnay donkey, I said. Or a strawberry daiquiri donkey. How does that sound? It sounds like youve had a few too many of what you want the donkey to carry, she said. Besides, I think its cruel. Cook insists she rarely gets complaints from party guests who feel carrying beer is an inappropriate use of the donkeys time. Most people want to love on them, take pictures with them and ask questions, she said. ey get interested in what they are and where they come from. And donkeys are bred to pack. She added, however, that she does get the occasional May I touch your (jack) ass comments from partygoers who all think their attempt at humor is original. Ive had people ask if they can take (the donkey) back to their hotel room, which sounds a little weird, Hill said, adding that she has declined those requests. I have a month to convince my wife the donkey will be a welcome addition to our family. It will be a tall task but not nearly as dicult as trying to teach my dog to use a bottle opener.Trust me, every dad wants a donkey for Fathers Day Ring Ring...

How does a team reliably get that far? By having reliable athletes, who come up big in the big spots of the big matches and events. For the boys team, that Mr. Reliable was sophomore Angel Partidas, who was in his rst season with Celebration after transferring from Osceola aer his freshman year. He earned a spot in Coach Darren Holts starting ve-man rotation and, as the No. 2 player most of the season, was a winner Holt could rely on. Partidas, who has only been in this country for about 18 months after moving from his homeland of Venezuela, steamed through Orange Belt Conference foes undefeated, lost just one match in the regular season, then rolled through his District 4A-5 bracket, helping the Storm clinch the district title. And he won his match and a doubles match with partner Sagar Shah in the Region 2 seminals, but Celebration fell to Strawberry Crest, 4-3. at solid season earned Partidas Osceola NewsGazette Boys Tennis Player of the Year honors. Funny thing is, Partidas, whos English mastery is strong for someone who still charts his U.S. residency in months, says he didnt start taking the game seriously until about three years ago. I played soccer and swam seriously, he said. My dad took our family to see the (Sony-Ericsson) professional tennis tournament in Miami in 2013 and I was hooked, I knew what I wanted to play seriously, he said. My dad (Jose Partidas) was a serious tennis player and was my rst real coach until I started working with Coach Holt. In just a short time playing competitively, Partidas has developed a strong baseline game. Defense is my strength, he said. I dont just go to the net. My matches can take up to two hours. Yes, its a long time to play, but I dont mind it if I win and the team wins. Holt said that Partidas had to come up big at the district tournament, despite four Storm players seeded No. 1, for the Storm to win the title. Toho High to play county schools; Eagles go indyFootball squads adjust schedules to play Tigers Sports Editor Tohopekaliga High, set to throw its doors open in August, is getting everything in place for its first football season, like a stadium, coaching staff and equipment. Now, the Tigers have a schedule. Opening a school in the second year of the two-year contract cycle can make it dicult to put together a schedule, but five of the countys seven other programs adjusted their schedules to take on Toho in its inaugural season. That still didnt make it easy for THS Athletic Director Kevin Mays. He and Tigers head coach Anthony Davis pieced together a ninegame schedule that features five road games and bye weeks in Week 5 and Week 10. The closest regularseason opponent not from Osceola County is three counties away. The Tigers will make their gridiron debut at home in the Aug. 17 Kicko Classic against Cypress Creek. e regular-season opener is the following week at Jupiter High, and the regular-season home opener is Aug. 31 against St. Petersburg Dixie Hollins. Five of the next six games are against county foes: at Harmony and Celebration Sept. 7 and 14, home to Liberty Sept. 27 and at Poinciana Oct. 5. Aer a home game against Port Orange Atlantic, the closest out-of-county opponent, St. Cloud comes calling on Oct. 19. The season ends at Superior, a new Clearwater charter school, on Nov. 2. The countys other biggest football change is that Poinciana, under new coach Phillip Prior, has le District 5A-13 for this season and will play as an independent, with the plan to return to district play in 2019. e move means games against Orlando powerhouses Bishop Moore and Jones were replaced by Tohopekaliga and a rebuilding Colonial program. A game played last year against a California team at Disney in Week 1 was replaced by Celebration. Im okay with it for one year, Prior said. Its not that were afraid of playing anybody, because you get better playing top competition, but doing it made it possible to replace two out-of-town teams with two county opponents. Hopefully our new district in 2019 will help us put more Osceola County programs on our schedule. Eagles Athletic Director Rob Weilert, who took the job this spring aer moving over from Liberty, said it was it was a decision made before I got here, but not one I disagree with. Our goal in future scheduling is to get more Osceola County teams on our schedule and also to re-enter district play for the 2019 season, he said, noting the Eagles will have three in-county games aer SUBMITTED PHOTOCelebration sophomore Angel Partidas poses with the District 4A-5 boys tennis championship trophy with Storm Coach Darren Holt.

Storm sophomore helped get squad to regionals Sports Editor It was an exciting spring sports season, especially for St. Cloud. The Bulldogs athletic program needed an epic comeback to pass rival Harmony and reclaim Orange Belt Conference All-Sports trophy for the rst time since 2015. Trailing the Longhorns, 82-74, coming out of the winter schedule, St. Cloud claimed OBC championships in girls track, boys weightliing, tied Osceola in boys track and won girls tennis in an interesting tiebreaker that may have decided the standings. anks to scoring 53.5 points in the spring, 12.5 more than Harmony, the Bulldogs finished the 2017-18 schedule with 127.5 points, nosing out the Longhorns (125), who had won the All-Sports title eight of the past 10 years entering 2017-18. After St. Cloud, Harmony and Celebration nished their girls tennis OBC schedules deadlocked at the top, school athletic directors agreed to draw school names out of a hat. On video, HHS AD John Wallauer drew St. Cloud his alma mater rst, and Celebration second. I will never let John live this down, that hes the one who lost the AllSports trophy to St. Cloud, St. Cloud AD Eric Godfrey said in jest this week.

Osceola and Gateway, the two teams not playing THS, have the same original schedule as last year. Here are the 2018 football schedule changes for the countys other programs: St. Cloud: The Bulldogs bye week moves from the last week of the season to the first, so now the regular season begins Aug. 31 at Tom Gannarelli Field against Osceola in the 95th installment of their rivalry. The THS game on Oct. 19 replaces Barron Collier so St. Cloud wont get to re-greet former Bulldogs Coach Mark Jackson and the regular season now ends Nov. 1 against Discovery in a rare Wednesday game. Harmony: The Longhorns host the Tigers on Sept. 7 in what was a Week 3 bye. The open week is now at the end, replacing what would have been a home game against Bradenton Southeast.

Our No. 1 went down in his rst match, so it quickly went from us having a strong shot at rst easily to a tight game between us and Lakeland, Holt said. (Angel) pulled out an exciting third set tie break win to win a medal and our team got behind and supported Osceola and George Jenkins who were also both playing crucial matches to help us tie with Lakeland. We just had to win one of the two boys doubles nals to win district. As it happens we won both doubles. On top of having a solid record of wins through out season, he remained mentally strong in his nal match at districts and also in the seminals at Regionals. The summer and fall wont be an oseason for Partidas, he said. Hes working hard on developing a stronger service and will be playing in USTA Juniors events, including a few home games at the new USTA Tennis Center in Lake Nona.

TURNING CIRCLE (curb-to-curb) 35.8 ft. CURB WEIGHT 3,128 lbs. FUEL CAPACITY 13.2 gal. EPA MILEAGE RATING 24 mpg city, 32 mpg highwayNew 2018 Autobahn Trim Copyright, Motor Matters, 2018 FOR THE LATEST NEWS WEBSITE AROUNDOSCEOLA.COM Motor Matters As the granddaddy of the hot hatch movement, the Volkswagen Golf GTI has tracked steadily in the fast lane for nearly 40 years, and now dris toward luxury with the new GTI Autobahn model. As before, this compact four-door delivers attainable high performance with sports-car handling, comfortable accommodations for four adults, the practicality of a hatchback, generous cargo space and the a choice of a manual gearbox or dual-clutch automatic transmission. A two-door model no longer is available and the previous Sport version also has vanished. e 2018 GTI comes in three trims: S at $27,265, SE at $31,320 and the tested Autobahn model with the six-speed twin-clutch gearbox at $37,020. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard on all GTIs with the automatic costing $1,100 extra. All Volkswagen GTI models are powered by a 220-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder engine that delivers 258 lb.-. of torque, or low-rev twisting force. Torque, enhanced by the turbocharger, is what gives the GTI a powerful surge o the line. Order the mid-level GTI SE trim and the headlights also are LEDs. A motorized tilt-and-slide sunroof, pushbutton starting, HD and SXM satellite radio, more powerful brakes, limited-slip dierential, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic monitoring, and automatic emergency braking also are included. e top-line Autobahn adds adaptive shock absorbers, leather upholstery, dualzone climate control, navigation, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, Fender premium audio system, electronic parking assist, automatic headlight high beams and electronic parking assist. The tested GTI Autobahn gets an enthusiasts juices flowing with a lowrestriction exhaust system that sends a musicale of growling sounds into the passenger pod. There are two driving modes: Drive and Sport. In the Drive setting, theres some hesitation off the line as the turbo spools up. That goes away in the Sport mode, which delivers instant throttle response. The dual-clutch transmission actually is a combination of two separate transmissions, one for oddnumbered gears and the other for the even-numbered gears, so shifts happen in milliseconds as the clutches close and open. As with other dual-clutch gearboxes, the GTIs can be driven automatically or manually with paddles mounted on the steering wheel. Though its possible with some effort to confuse it, the onboard computer uncannily predicts whether the driver will shift up or down. Inside, the GTI Autobahn exhibits quality materials and workmanship, comprehensive instruments and comfortable, well-bolstered seats for spirited driving. Though there are seatbelts for five, the center-rear position is mostly useless because of a high, hard cushion, floor hump and console intrusion that leaves no foot space. Theres 17 cubic feet of space for cargo behind the rear seatback. The seatbacks fold nearly flat to expand the cargo area to 54 cubic feet. A temporary spare tire nestles beneath the cargo floor-a plus in an era when many cars have abandoned spares in favor of sealants and air pumps, which would not be of any help in the event of a blowout. The Golfs predecessor was the charming and ubiquitous Beetle, which essentially was a single model in hard top and convertible trim. Now the Golf oers a range of models from base economy to hot performance. VWGOLF GTI The car that dened the term hot hatch embodies a classic formula: renement, style, power, and playful performance. In 2018 the Golf GTI returns with a host of enhancements that continue the tradition of affordable performance it has built since its U.S. debut in 1983. The 2018 Golf GTI is available in three trimsS, SE and Autobahn.

Page 18 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, June 2, 2018 (BPT) Whether its transforming a xer-upper into your dream home or just giving a makeover to your kitchen or bathroom, home improvement projects are on the minds of many new homeowners across the country. While many things about renovating your home are exible, your budget might not be. In general, not a single oorboard is laid, or a new countertop installed without money, which is why every home renovation project should begin with careful nancial planning. To help homeowners with their renovation projects, Marcus by Goldman Sachs is working with home renovation expert, JoJo Fletcher, to share her budget-friendly home renovation tips. Think about small changes you can make if you dont have the time to take on a big project right now, like freshening up any kitchen by renishing your cabinets with a bright white coat of paint, said JoJo Fletcher, ambassador for Marcus by Goldman Sachs(R). When it comes to nancing a larger project, however, I recommend homeowners explore all their options in order to get the most out of their budget. ere are several ways to nance these projects and its important to explore your options to nd the one thats right for you. Below are ve important tips to keep in mind when deciding how to fund your next home project. 1. Shop around. The better you plan, the better chance youll save money. Before anything gets torn out or installed, you should spend time consulting with contractors and getting estimates. Look at the work theyve done to see if they would be a good t. Most importantly, dont be afraid to ask a lot of questions to make sure youre working with the right people and paying the right price. 2. Consider financing options. There are several options when financing a home improvement project and it is important to choose the right t for you. Home equity loans and home equity lines of credit (HELOC) require you to borrow against the value of your home, with home equity loans oering a lump sum while home equity lines of credit provide you with a credit line you can borrow against. An unsecured home improvement loan can be used based on your creditworthiness and ability to pay, not tied to a piece of collateral. JoJo Fletcher added, I recommend homeowners consider a home improvement loan if they are looking to borrow money and have good credit. For instance, Marcus by Goldman Sachs offers no-fee, fixed rate home improvement loans up to $40,000, which could be a better option than putting renovation costs on a higher interest credit card, or borrowing against your homes equity. Applying for a loan is easy and you can see your oers in as little as ve minutes. 3. Create a budget. Because of the nature of remodels, things oen end up costing more than you might think. No matter how big or how small the project, you need to have a solid sense of what your all in budget number is. is should not only account for hard and so costs for things like labor, materials and designers, it should also account for contingency costs. Experts typically recommend budgeting an additional 15 to 20 percent for unexpected scenarios that might arise. A thoughtful budget will help keep your priorities in front of you and prevent you from spending more than you want. 4. Remember, this is an investment! Not all home renovations will pay o in the long term. Its important to consider cost vs. value before you start making changes, especially for homeowners looking to sell in the near future. If you plan on putting your house on the market sooner rather than later, be sure to keep track of the top home features to get the best return on your investment. 5. Work with a designer. This might sound like a luxury or an added expense, but in many cases, a designer could actually help save money by nding deals or providing suggestions for less expensive alternatives, such as using quartz or white concrete instead of marble. Above all, their expertise can help avoid costly mistakes that can oen arise when people try to cut corners on their own. CONTACT BRIAN MCBRIDE EDITOR EMAIL BMCBRIDE@OSCEOLANEWSGAZETTE.COM A stronger economy, wage growth and an improving job market are expected to march home sales and prices higher in 2018, but low supply and weakening aordability will tamper the rate of increases, according to speakers at a residential real estate forum during the 2018 Realtors Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo. Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Association of Realtors, presented his 2018 midyear forecast and said despite headwinds a moderate and multiyear increase in home sales is likely ahead. After accelerating 3.8 percent in 2016, existing home sales rose only 1.1 percent to 5.5 million in 2017 and are forecast to finish 2018 at a pace of around 5.6 million (up 1.8 percent). He projects 5.7 million sales for 2019.Overall fundamentals remain solid, driven by a growing economy and steady job creation, which will sustain home sales in 2018 slightly above last years pace, said Yun. The worsening housing shortage means home prices are primed to rise further this year too, hindering affordability conditions for homebuyers in markets across the country. Yun said the widespread shortage of homes for sale is the major factor limiting sales from being higher. While home sales have risen modestly since the start of the year, Yun said without more supply to fully satisfy demand and alleviate the upward pressure on prices, contract activity is likely to remain at and will more or less continue sideways through the end of the year. Total housing inventory at the end of March was 1.67 million existing homes available for sale, which is 7.2 percent lower than a year ago (1.80 million). Inventory has trended down steadily for the past ve years, said Yun, and the country is now experiencing the lowest inventory levels in a generation; unsold inventory is at a 3.6-month supply at the current sales pace, down from 3.8 months a year ago. Home price growth, up 48 percent from 2011 to 2017 and likely to rise an additional 4 percent in 2018, is far outpacing income growth, up only 15 percent during the same timeframe. Increased home prices on top of rising mortgage rates Yun anticipates rates will rise to 4.6 percent in 2018 and 5 percent in 2019 puts aordability at a six-year low, according to NARs Housing Affordability Index, and will likely continue to fall in coming months. Challenging aordability conditions have prevented a meaningful rise in the homeownership rate after having fallen to a 50year low a few years ago, said Yun. To increase homeownership, more home construction is needed, which could be boosted by delivering regulatory relief to community banks, removing the lumber tari, re-examining stringent zoning laws and training more workers for the construction industry. Yun said consumer optimism that now is a good time to buy a home has fallen the past two years, according to data from NAR and other industry consumer sentiment surveys. While the lack of supply and challenging affordability conditions is chipping away at homebuyer optimism, Hale said buyers arent giving up their dreams of purchasing a home. Buyers know its tough, 35 percent of shoppers anticipate a lot of competition, but they remain optimistic, and more than 70 percent expect to close in 2018, she said. Housing economists call for more home constructionAn increase in housing supply is crucial to the health and sustainability of the real estate market and the economy, according to speakers at a session organized by the Realtor University Richard J. Rosenthal Center for Real Estate Studies during the 2018 Realtors Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo. The session, Outlook for Home Prices and Residential Construction, focused on rapidly rising home prices, tight home inventories and whether or not the country is in the middle of a bubble. All three of the panelists agreed that more new home construction is necessary to meet rising demand from increasing household formation and curtail the aordability crisis. Young adults of today are forming households at a much lower rate than previous generations, and high housing costs contribute to that, said Len Kiefer, deputy chief economist for Freddie Mac. According to Kiefer, one third to three quarters of U.S. markets have an elevated home price-to-income ratio and many major markets, such as Austin, Miami and Portland, are getting close to surpassing their 2008 ratio. Are we in a bubble? No, not currently, said Kiefer. He outlined ways the current market is dierent from the one leading to the recession, such as no signs of over leveraging and the very low ratios of household income to debt. e aggregate risk of mortgages in the U.S. is also comparatively low Those risky loans that contribute to the last bubble have largely gone away in the current market, he said. However, the panelists were quick to point out that just because we are not currently in a bubble does not mean we wont enter one. If supply and demand continues to become more and more out of balance, it could trigger a fast price growth, said NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. A best-case scenario is largely dependent on new home construction. An increase in inventory will provide some much-needed release, he said. Ken Simonson, chief economist for Associated General Contractors of America, discussed how low employment in construction is also contributing to the lag in new home construction, despite high demand. Construction saw a 30 percent drop in employment in the previous decade, the largest drop of any industry. They also began laying people off a year before the recession began and did not start hiring again until much later than other industries, said Simonson. SNG 021018

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.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) The Trump administration's decision to slap tariffs on its top allies could weaken Commerce Secretary Wil bur Ross' hand as he travels to Beijing to try to fend off a trade war with China. That, at least, is the view of many longtime trade ana lysts and China watchers. "This is really the U.S. going it alone," said Philip Levy, senior fellow at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs who was a trade ad viser in the George W. Bush administration. "By assaulting all our allies, we leave ourselves standing unpro tected and by ourselves in a way we really never have been." "We are alienating all of our friends and partners at a time when we could really use their support," added Wendy Cutler, a former U.S. trade negotiator who is now vice president at the Asia Society Policy Institute. After brieng reporters on the administration's de cision to slap tariffs on imported steel from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, Ross is leaving Friday for Beijing for nego tiations aimed at resolving a dispute over China's ag gressive attempts to chal lenge U.S. technological supremacy. Trade analysts say the Trump team should be en listing its allies to present a united front to China. After all, U.S. friends like Japan and the European Union share many of the same gripes about China. They decry rampant theft of in tellectual property and Chi nese overproduction, which has ooded world markets with cheap steel and aluminum. And in fact, U.S. Trade Rep. Robert Lighthizer, Ja pan's economics minister, Hiroshige Seko, and EU Trade Commissioner Ceci lia Malmstrom did issue a vague statement from Paris on Thursday urging uniden tied countries to do more to protect intellectual prop erty and to reduce overcapacity. But the U.S. undermined the alliance on Thursday by slapping key allies and trading partners Canada, Mexico and the EU with tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum. All vowed to retaliate by penalizing American products. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, noting that Canadians and Americans have been allies for 150 years and fought and died together in World War II and in Afghanistan, took a shot at the Trump team: "Americans remain our partners, friends, and al lies," Trudeau said. "This is not about the American people. We have to believe that at some point their common sense will prevail. But we see no sign of that in this action today by the U.S. administration." Now, the U.S. is turning to Beijing and to a standoff that has taken some confus ing turns. Last month, the admin istration proposed tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese imports to punish China for forcing U.S. companies to hand over technology in exchange for access to its market. President Donald Trump later ordered his top trade negotiator to seek up to an additional $100 billion in Chinese products to tax. China responded by tar geting $50 billion in U.S. products, including soybeans a shot at Trump supporters in America's heartland. Rising tensions between the world's two biggest economies alarmed investors and business lead ers. But they breathed a sigh of relief earlier this month when the U.S. and China declared a cease-re af ter talks in Washington. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said then that the trade war was "on hold." And the tariffs were sus pended after China agreed to "substantially reduce" its trade surplus with America by buying more U.S. prod ucts. The truce didn't last long. Trump, facing criticism from some in Congress for cozying up to Beijing, on Tuesday renewed his threat to impose the tariffs on China. His hardline trade advis er, Peter Navarro, charged Wednesday that Mnuchin's conciliatory comments about China were "an un fortunate sound bite." Critics say the adminis tration should be picking its trade ghts far more judiciously. "This is dumb," said Re publican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska. "Europe, Canada and Mexico are not China, and you don't treat allies the same way you treat oppo nents." "There's still a risk that this escalates into a trade war," Levy said.

US alienates allies before taking on BeijingGoing it aloneAfter embassy move, Trump weighs Jerusalem consulate changesWASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump is considering giving U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman more authority over the U.S. outpost that handles Palestinian affairs, ve U.S. ofcials said, a shift that could further dampen Palestinian hopes for an independent state. Any move to downgrade the autonomy of the U.S. Consulate General in Je rusalem responsible for relations with the Palestinians could have potent symbolic resonance, sug gesting American recognition of Israeli control over east Jerusalem and the West Bank. And while the change might be technical and bu reaucratic, it could have po tentially signicant policy implications. As president, Trump has departed from tradi tional U.S. insistence on a "two-state solution" for the Mideast conict by leaving open the possibility of just one state. As his administration prepares to unveil a long-awaited peace plan, the Palestinians have all but cut off contact, enraged by Trump's decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jeru salem. The deliberations come as Friedman, who has pushed for changes to the consulate since he arrived in Israel last year, faces growing indignation in the U.S. over partisan com ments and other actions in which he has publicly sided with Israel over its critics. On Thursday, a top Demo cratic lawmaker even sug gested Friedman should be recalled after he waded into domestic U.S. politics on Israel's behalf, telling an Israeli newspaper that Demo crats have failed to support Israel as much as Republi cans. For decades, the Jerusalem consulate has operated differently than almost ev ery other consulate around the world. Rather than re porting to the U.S. Embassy in Israel, it has reported directly to the State Depart ment in Washington, giv ing the Palestinians an un ltered channel to engage with the U.S. government. That arrangement was relatively clear-cut before Trump moved the embassy. Until Trump's decision in December to move it from Tel Aviv, the United States did not recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The Jerusalem consulate provided services to Americans in Je rusalem and also served as the de facto U.S. embassy to the Palestinians, who claim east Jerusalem for the capital of a future independent state. But since Trump ear lier this month moved the embassy to Jerusalem, the situation has become more complicated. Now the U.S. maintains an embassy in one part of the city and a separate consulate less than a mile away, potentially cre ating confusion about who has ultimate authority if, for example, an American citi zen needs help and turns to the U.S. government. No nal decision has been made about what changes to make to the consulate's chain of com mand, a decision compli cated by the consulate's unique circumstances. But the embassy, run by Fried man, is expected to end up with ultimate authority over the consulate, ofcials said. They weren't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and requested anonymity. Dan Shapiro, the former U.S. ambassador to Israel, said such a move would be perceived as undermining Palestinians' claims to sov ereignty and statehood as pirations, because it would suggest that Washington considers the Palestinian Authority to be under Isra el's jurisdiction. Otherwise, Shapiro said, why would it expect the Palestinians to talk to the U.S. through its mission to Israel? "They don't want to deal with the U.S. embassy to Israel as their channel," said Shapiro, now a scholar at Israel's Institute for National Security Studies. "They want their voice to be heard directly in Washington." Typically, the head of a consulate, known as a consul general, reports to the ambassador, who has "chief of mission authority" over all U.S. posts in the country. In contrast, the consul gen eral running the Jerusalem consulate has historically had his or her own chief of mission authority. The closest comparable case to the Jerusalem situation is the U.S. Consulate in Hong Kong, which also has its own chief of mission who does not report to the U.S. ambassador in Beijing. Friedman has advocated for having the embassy in Jerusalem subsume the consulate, ofcials said, although the State Department has ruled out that pos sibility. Other possibilities include allowing the con sulate to retain some dayto-day authorities while letting the embassy set the direction for major policy decisions. Staunchly pro-Israel and with close ties to the West Bank settler movement, Friedman is broadly seen by Palestinian leadership as lacking good faith in U.S. efforts to mediate a fair resolution to the Mideast conict. But on the consul ate issue, he has an ally in the White House in the form of national security adviser John Bolton, the ofcials said. It wasn't clear precisely when the changes would be made, although one ofcial said the administration is waiting until current Consul General Donald Blome leaves Jerusalem over the summer, possibly in July. Regardless of any chang es, the Jerusalem consulate will remain the primary U.S. point of contact for the Palestinian Authority and for Palestinians, including those in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip seeking visas or other U.S. consular ser vices. "Consulate General Jerusalem continues to operate as an independent mission with an unchanged man date from its historic Agron Road location," the State Department said in a state ment. Such changes would like ly be carried out by Trump issuing new "letters of in struction," which delegate authorities to ambassadors and chiefs of mission, to Friedman and whoever heads the Jerusalem consulate, the ofcial said. Separately, the Trump administration is also fac ing calls in Congress for the U.S. to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Go lan Heights, the strategic plateau that Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Mideast war. Although Israel annexed the Golan in 1981, the U.S. and others consider it to be disputed territory with its status subject to an eventual peace deal be tween Israel and Syria. In recent months, howev er, Iran's increasing involve ment in Syria and growing presence in southern Syria near the Golan Heights have drawn alarm in Is rael and elsewhere, leading some U.S. lawand policymakers to believe that the Washington should end its ofcial neutrality in a show of support for Israeli secu rity in the face of a threat from Iran and its proxies. Ideas under discussion range from at-out recogni tion that the Golan is part of Israel to lifting restrictions on U.S. investment incentives for projects or more symbolic steps like includ ing the area on ofcial maps as part of Israel.

Now available at the lobby of the Osceola News-Gazette.108 Church Street, Kissimmee Fl 34771407-846-7600 NEW YORK (AP) It's the beauty aisles themselves getting makeovers now. Department stores are be ing forced to rethink how they sell higher-end makeup and perfume as competition intensies from discounters like Target, specialty chains like Sephora and Ulta and online brands. So stores like Saks and Macy's are prom ising workouts for your face, augmented reality and beauty treatment concierges as they try to attract millen nial customers and make the cosmetics aisles more of a destination than a stop over. To expand its beauty area to the size of a typical grocery store, Saks Fifth Avenue's agship location is even bumping cosmet ics from its position near main-oor entrances to the second level, breaking from a century-old tradition in re tailing. "Department stores have to reinvent themselves, and that's not an easy thing to do," said Larissa Jensen, an analyst at NPD Group, a market research rm. "Ev eryone has an eye on beau ty. It's an area that consum ers continue to be excited about." But shoppers are changing the way they buy beauty products, fueled by social media, the explosion of new trends and emerging brands. Customers want to experiment with products beyond the brands to which they're loyal. And with in formation online, they're more knowledgeable when they approach the cosmet ics counter. Specialty chains like Ulta and Sephora overtook de partment stores by share of the U.S. beauty and per sonal care market in 2009, according to research rm Euromonitor International. By last year the specialists had more than 15 percent of the market and department stores fell below 9 percent. Department stores, al ready trying to keep cus tomers coming through the doors, are freshening up the face they present to shoppers. Saks Fifth Avenue has ex panded the beauty section at its New York agship by 40 percent to 32,000 square feet. It has 15 treatment rooms for services like get ting your back fat frozen or workouts for your face to combat sagging. It offers complimentary services like mini-facials, with a concierge to greet custom ers and help book appoint ments. Meanwhile, Macy's is allowing shoppers to experi ment more with products and letting beauty advisers step away from the coun ter to help them. It also has areas that focus on specic categories like mascaras or highlighters that include many brands. And it's fea turing augmented reality technology in a cluster of stores for shoppers who want to experiment with out trying everything out. Stores like Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, meanwhile, are creating hubs of the lat est trends and beauty prod ucts. J.C. Penney, still scarred by a disastrous makeover a few years ago, has been ex panding its highly successful partnership with Sepho ra and will have those shops in 75 percent of its stores this year. "We are all thinking of new ways to innovate," said Nata Dvir, Macy's general business manager of beauty. Sephora and Ulta had already shaken up the long time pattern of shoppers going to department stores and talking to advisers for higher-end products or nding low-priced offerings at drug stores. Both chains have expand ed rapidly, multiplying the number of places shoppers can test makeup and get tutorials. And Sephora in particular has been ahead in adopting technology like using facial scans to nd foundations and concealers to match a person's skin tone. It was the rst beauty brand to adopt chatbots, ac cording to research rm CB Insights. Their success has pushed discounters like Walmart and Target as well as drug stores like CVS to revamp their cosmetics areas with more open spaces, brighter lighting and more attractive xtures. Discounters have also been working with suppliers to jump on new trends and get items in stores in a few months later instead of in a year. Target now has sales as sistants who specialize in beauty, and launched a concierge service on its site that lets shoppers chat with experts and virtually try on makeup. Customers will soon be able to text a beauty expert, and at 10 stores they can try augmented reality technology. And online sites, such as Colourpop and Glambot, feature high-end brands at more affordable prices. Against this competition, Saks Fifth Avenue aims to offers an over-the-top beau ty experience, with large shops devoted to brands like Chanel and Gucci, something that hasn't been seen before in the beauty depart ments. It's a mix of technol ogy and serious pampering. There's even a orist shop with matching fragrances. Much was made of the move away from the ground oor, but Saks Fifth Av enue president Marc Metrick says the new format is designed for someone who wants to spend time. "We really wanted to cre ate an emotional connection with a customer," said Met rick.

The company claims the tool is outdated and wasn't popular. But the trending section also proved problematic in ways that would presage Facebook's later problems with fake news, political balance and the limitations of ar ticial intelligence in manag ing the messy human world. When Facebook launched "trending" in 2014 as a list of headlines to the side of the main news feed, it was a straightforward move to steal users from Twitter by giving them a quick look at the most popular news of the mo ment. It t nicely into CEO Mark Zuckerberg's pledge just a year earlier to make Facebook its users' "personal newspaper." But that was then. "Fake news" wasn't yet a popular term, and no foreign country had been accused of trying to inuence the U.S. elections through social media. Trend ing news that year included the death of Robin Williams, Ebola and the World Cup. While Facebook is killing the trending section, it is test ing new features, including a "breaking news" label that publishers can add to stories to distinguish them from other chatter. Facebook also wants to make local news more prominent. In an interview ahead of Friday's announcement, Facebook's head of news products, Alex Hardiman, said the company is still committed to breaking and real-time news. But instead of having Facebook's moderators, human or otherwise, make editorial decisions, there's also been a subtle shift to let news organizations do so. According to the Pew Research Center, 44 percent of U.S. adults get some or all of their news through Face book. Troubles with the trend ing section began to emerge in 2016, when the company was accused of bias against conservatives, based on the words of an anonymous former contractor who said Facebook downplayed conservative issues in the trending section and promoted lib eral causes. Zuckerberg met with prominent right-wing leaders at the company's headquarters in an attempt at damage control. Yet two years later, Facebook still hasn't been able to shake the notion of bias. In late 2016, Facebook red the human editors who worked on the trending top ics and replaced them with software that was supposed to be free of political bias. In stead, the software algorithm began to pick out posts that were getting the most atten tion, even if the information in them was bogus. In early 2017, Facebook made anoth er attempt to x the trending section, this time by includ ing only topics covered by several news publishers. The thinking was that coverage by just one outlet could be a sign that the news is fake. The troubles underscore the difculty of relying on computers, even articial intelligence, to make sense of the messy human world without committing obvious, sometimes embarrassing and occasionally disastrous er rors. Ultimately, Facebook appears to conclude that trying to x the headaches around trending weren't worth the meager benet the company, users and news publishers saw in it. "There are other ways for us to better invest our re sources," Hardiman said. As it winds down the fea ture, Facebook is testing out a "breaking news" label with 80 publishers around the world. This tool lets publish ers such as The Washington Post add a red label to indicate that a story is breaking news, highlighting it for users who want accurate information as things are happening. "Breaking news has to look different than a recipe," Hardiman said. Another feature, called "Today In," shows people breaking news in their area from local publishers, of cials and organizations. It's being tested out in 30 mar kets in the U.S. Hardiman says the goal is to help "el evate great local journalism." The company is also funding news videos, created by outside publishers it would not yet name and original to Facebook, that it plans to launch in the next couple of months. Facebook says the trend ing section wasn't a popular feature to begin with. It was available only in ve coun tries and accounted for less than 1.5 percent of clicks to the websites of news publish ers, according to the company. Based on data from surveys of people who used it, Facebook says it was be coming less and less useful as people turned to their main news feed as a place to get news. While Facebook got out sized attention for the prob lems the trending section had perhaps because it seemed popular with journalists and editors neither its exis tence nor its removal makes much of a difference when it comes with Facebook's broader problems with news. Hardiman said ending the trending section feels like let ting a child go. But she said Facebook's focus now is pri oritizing trustworthy, infor mative news that people nd useful. Seeing a list of the day's most popular trends did not always help with this.

Saturday, June 2, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E5 SEOUL, South Korea (AP) Bitter rivals North and South Korea are on talking terms again, but their surprising cordiality still has moments of awkwardness, such when a senior North Korean ofcial scolded a South Korean reporter over a question he didn't like. In a brief exchange that displayed the fundamental differences between the countries, North Korean ofcial Ri Son Gwon reacted with irritation Friday when a South Korean reporter asked him whether North Korea's grievances against the South had been resolved as he arrived for talks on easing tensions at the border village of Pan munjom. Ri, chairman of the North Korean agency that deals with inter-Korean affairs, seemed stunned by the question. After a mo ment of silence, Ri, who in the past has been described by South Korean coun terparts as hot-tempered, ripped into the reporter. "Journalists can ask questions from different angles. But don't you think that the questions should change, to meet the de mand of changing times?" Ri said. "You obviously know which side caused the situation to become serious. Then why are you asking me whether the (problems) have been re solved?" Ri said he would con sider similar questions as "discourteous" in the fu ture. He called for ques tions that would "promote reconciliation and cooperation." Ri is hardly the rst North Korean ofcial to chastise South Korean reporters over questions they found uncomfortable. But ofcials have been un usually cordial in recent months as North Korea reaches out to South Korea and the United States to reduce tensions. While South Korean re porters have a reputation for aggressiveness, the question to Ri at Panmunjom was fairly predictable. North Korea had called off the high-level talks last month over what it saw as bad faith from the southern side. A surprise summit last week between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in put the meeting back on for Friday. The senior ofcials from the two sides agreed to es tablish a liaison ofce in the North Korean border town of Kaesong and hold military and Red Cross talks later this month on reducing tensions and re suming reunions of fami lies separated by the 195053 Korean War. Kim and Moon held their rst summit at Panmunjom on April 27 and issued vague aspirations for a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula and permanent peace. But relations chilled when North Korea canceled the high-level meeting and threatened to walk away from a planned summit between Kim and U.S. President Don ald Trump because of the South's participation in military exercises with the United States and com ments from U.S. ofcials. Trump canceled the sum mit, then said it may still take place, shortly before Kim and Moon met again on May 26. Diplomacy is also accelerating between the U.S. and North Korea to pre pare for a summit, which may take place June 12 in Singapore. But Ri, still seething over the grievanc es question, wasn't willing to talk about the potential meeting with reporters. "Go y to Singapore to ask that question," he told the South Korean reporter. "This is Panmunjom." Ri was in a better mood in the meeting room with South Korean ofcials, lightheartedly mentioning his earlier interaction with the reporter and even pro posing that the meeting be opened to the media. "Reporters are the spokesmen of justice and truth," Ri said. "If they get to be with us through the whole meeting, they will think, 'Wow, the NorthSouth high-level talks are producing a good outcome' and will vividly re port what happens." South Korean Unica tion Minister Cho My oung-gyon persuaded Ri to keep the discussions be hind closed-doors for the sake of efciency. There have been plenty of awkward exchanges between North Korean ofcials and South Korean journalists during tenser times. In 2008, senior North Korean diplomat Hyun Hak Bong angrily wagged a nger at South Korean reporters who asked about speculation over health problems for then North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, the late fa ther of the current leader, fuming about "nonsense" spread by "bad people who don't wish our repub lic well." The interactions have been noticeably different in recent months. In April, senior North Korean of cial Kim Yong Chol, who is currently in the United States and plans to meet Trump, surprised visiting South Korean reporters by apologizing for media coverage problems during a joint cultural event in Pyongyang. But Kim Yong Chol also displayed a dark sense of humor, introducing him self by saying, "Hello, I am the man you blame for the sinking of the Cheonan." South Korea has accused Kim, a former military intelligence chief, of be ing behind the sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan and the shelling of a border island which together killed 50 South Koreans in 2010.

Senior North Korean official chastises South Korean reporterItalian populists sworn into power as euroskeptics cheerROME (AP) Italy's president swore in west ern Europe's rst populist government Friday, featur ing a mix of anti-establish ment and right-wing min isters who have promised an "Italy rst" agenda that has alarmed Europe's po litical establishment. The continent's euroskeptic politicians cheered the birth of the new government coalition of the 5-Star Movement and the right-wing League par ty. Milan's stock market rose after a last-minute deal Thursday averted the threat of an early election that could have turned into a referendum on wheth er Italy should ditch the shared euro currency. President Sergio Mattarella, who negotiated through three months of political deadlock to nally nd a workable gov ernment, presided over the ceremony in the gilded Quirinale Palace. Eighteen ministers ve of them women took the oath of ofce, pledging to observe Italy's constitution and work exclusively in the in terests of the nation. The ministers feature a mix of 5-Star and League loyalists, and a politi cal neophyte in the form of Premier-designate Giuseppe Conte, who was still teaching his law classes at the university in Flor ence up until Thursday. The key economy ministry went to a mainstream economist, Giovanni Tria, who is close to the centerright Forza Italia party of ex-Premier Silvio Berlusconi. Mattarella had vetoed the 5-Star-League's rst proposed candidate for the post because of his euroskeptic views, scuttling their rst shot at forming a government. The Cabinet also in cludes defense attorney Giulia Bongiorno as the new minister for public administration. A centerright lawmaker, she is leg endary for defending exPremier Giulio Andreotti against maa collusion charges and defending the ex-boyfriend of American student Amanda Knox against murder charges. The ceremony Friday afternoon capped a rollercoaster week of political and nancial turmoil that saw stock markets around the world plunge and Italy's borrowing rates soar on the threat of a new election in Europe's thirdlargest economy. It also came on the eve of the nation's Republic Day holiday, the day in 1946 when Italy abolished the monarchy and gave birth to the First Republic. The improbably fast rise of the grassroots 5-Star Movement and its alliance with the right-wing, anti-immigrant League has been dubbed the birth of Italy's Third Republic, after Italy's post-war po litical order was largely drubbed in the March 4 national vote. "Look at this spectacle!" marveled 5-Star leader Luigi Di Maio moments before the swearing-in ceremony. In a Facebook post featuring a photo of the 5-Star ministers, he said: "There are a lot of us, and we're ready to launch a government of change to improve the quality of life for all Italians." After the ceremony, Conte headed to the pre mier's ofce to formally take the reins and a symbolic little bell from ex-Premier Paolo Gentiloni. The changing of the guard sets the stage for obligatory condence votes in Parliament next week. Between them, the League and 5-Stars have a thin parliamentary major ity, and some right-wing lawmakers outside the government have vowed to abstain rather than vote against it. Europe's populists and right-wingers cheered the new Italian government as a slap in the face to Brussels, headquarters of the 28-nation European Union. French far-right leader Marine Le Pen tweeted: "It's a victory of democ racy over intimidation and threats from the European Union." Le Pen shares the League's rm stances against immigrants. Nigel Farage, former leader of Britain's UKIP party that played a key role in the Brexit cam paign for Britain to leave the EU, wished good luck to the two parties. "Gotta stay strong or the bully boys will be after you," he warned. It was a reference to EU ofcials, who have made clear in recent days their concerns in occasion ally undiplomatic terms about Italy's euroskeptic direction. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told a conference Thursday that he loved Italy, but refused to accept the frequent mantra by Italian politicians that Italy's ills are the fault of the EU. "Italians have to take care of the poor regions of Italy. That means more work, less corruption. Se riousness," he said. "We will help them, as we al ways did. But don't play this game." His comments sparked outrage in Italy, with Salvini blasting them as "racist" in his victory speech Thursday in northern Lombardy. "With the new government, we'll see how to make them respect the rights and dignity of 60 million Italians who want cooperation from Europe, not insults," Salvini said. By Friday, EC spokes woman Mina Andreeva said Juncker "deeply re grets" the comments and reafrmed that he not only loved Italy, but that the EU executive was committed to working with its new government. "We have full con dence in the capacity and willingness of the new government to engage constructively with its European partners and EU institutions to uphold Italy's central role in the common European project," Andreeva said. The government is head ed by Conte, but he has as deputy premiers his two more seasoned political masters: Di Maio and Sal vini. Di Maio, who pledged to give needy Italians a basic income, takes over as economic development min ister, while Salvini heads the interior ministry, the key position to enforce his pledge to expel hundreds of thousands of migrants. Ex-Premier Matteo Renzi, whose Democratic Par ty suffered its worst-ever thrashing in the March vote, wished good luck to the Conte government while vowing to be the "civil opposition." "We are radically something else than the major ity that supports this gov ernment," Renzi tweeted.

(AP) An appeals court has wiped out the convictions of two lm producers sentenced to federal prison for running a synthetic marijuana opera tion. The Virginian-Pilot reports a Richmond appeals court ordered U.S. District Judge Raymond Jackson to take up the case again of Charles Burton Ritchie and Benjamin Galecki. They were convicted last year of running a $21 million operation out of Pensacola, Florida, that shipped the drug known as spice to areas in Virginia. The court ruled Friday that Jackson shouldnt have barred defense testimony from a then-scientist with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. The scientist was later arrested on charges of communicating with a child under 15 for sexual contact. The two produced Misery Loves Comedy, a 2015 documentary featuring Martin Short, Amy Schumer, Jimmy Fallon and other comedians. PHILADELPHIA (AP) The woman whose allegations that Bill Cosby drugged and assaulted her led to his conviction said the pills he gave her made her feel like a "limp noodle," leaving her helpless to fend off the 2004 attack. Andrea Constand, 45, a former Temple University women's basket ball administrator, spoke to NBC News in her rst interview since the jury convicted "The Cosby Show" star of three counts of aggravated in decent assault. Her comments closely tracked what she said on the witness stand at Cosby's two trials the rst ended in a hung jury last summer as she described how Cosby knocked her out with three blue pills he called "your friends," then attacked her at his suburban Philadelphia home. "My mind is saying, 'Move your hands. Kick. Can you do anything? I don't want this. Why is this person doing this?' And me not being able to react in any specic way," Constand said in the taped interview, a brief clip of which aired on NBC's "To day" show on Thursday. "So I was limp. I was a limp noodle." She added: "I was crying out inside, in my throat, in my mind, for this to stop. And I couldn't do any thing." Constand said she felt ashamed and didn't immediately tell anyone about the assault because she thought no one would believe it.

BY JAKE COYLE AP Film WriterFor anyone who has ever read "Crime and Punishment" and then really wanted to see a frat boy version Bro-stoyevsky, if you will your movie has nally arrived. "American Animals" is about a foursome of Kentucky college stu dents all white kids from privi leged backgrounds who in 2004 decided to steal some extremely valu able books from the Lexington library at Transylvania University. They are motivated less by the millions the books (particularly John James Audu bon's multi-volume "The Birds of America") could fetch than a desire to step beyond a line and turn their regu lar lives into something "special." "We're supposed to be hunter gath erers, man," one says to another in a grocery store aisle. The irony is that their brazen plot turns them into just another kind of clich hapless, dimwitted criminals and leaves them ultimately with nothing but regret and shame. Oh, and this movie. Bart Layton's "American Animals" isn't just a dramatization of the 2004 heist. It's frequently narrated and commented upon by the real guys whose story the lm is based on. War ren Lipka, Spencer Reinhard, Eric Bosuk and Charles Allen II all appear in documentary-style interviews that punctuate the heist narrative, looking back years later with ashen remorse that may or may not mask their pleasure at starring in their own movie. It opens, cleverly, with the words "This is not based on a true story." Then, with a puff, the middle words blow away leaving only, "This is a true story." Layton has previously played with hybrids of ction and nonction. His 2012 documentary "The Imposter," about the shape-shifting con art ist Frederic Bourdin, was as manipu lative and deceptive as its sly subject. And especially in the rst half of "American Animals," Layton works hard too hard to impress its own stranger-than-ction playfulness. The talking-head testimonies of the guys, along with their parents and teachers, are joined with scenes in which char acters question each other's memories. Layton sometimes plays multiple versions of scenes, like the foggily remembered meeting with a possible fence to sell the books in New York. The what's-true-what's-not tricks, reminiscent of last year's "I, Tonya," are like the students' own highminded plans not quite as smart as Layton seems to think. But the actors are quite good. Barry Keoghan ("The Killing of a Sacred Deer") plays Spen cer, a talented painter in search of some artistic suffering. "Art has to be about something more than: My life is great and I'm really good at drawing," he says. The valuable books rst catch his eye, but it's his friend Warren (Evan Peters) who's the ringleader. While his parents are divorcing, Warren lets his athletic scholarship slide and refashions himself as a James Dean rebel and small-time thief. Through charisma and cajoling, he assembles a team (Jared Abrahamson and Blake Jenner play Bosuk and Allen) and what starts as a hypothetical lark turns into a gen uine if poorly considered plot, predi cated on disabling the middle-aged librarian (Ann Dowd) and dressing up as elderly men in costumes that mostly resemble 1970s Dick Van Dykes. They make a study of heist movies, watching lms like Stanley Kubrick's "The Killing," giving themselves "Reservoir Dogs" nicknames and imagining a smooth, stylish "Ocean's 11" operation. In a sense, "American Animals" rewards them with the noto riety they sought. And it's reasonable to wonder if the lm which con ates their crime with the existential malaise of American youth isn't just another way for them to prot for what they deserve only punishment. (Allen also wrote a 2010 book titled "Mr. Pink." Reinhard is still painting.) There's plenty hollow in the selfaware machinations of "American Animals." But there's also something affecting in Reinhard's regret and how the lm charts the swift, crushing fall of a dopey, quixotic idea hatched by kids who don't realize that what they're playing at isn't a game. "Amer ican Animals" would be a legitimate cautionary tale if it wasn't invalidated by its own existence. "American Animals," a The Or chard and MoviePass Ventures re lease, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for "language throughout, some drug use and brief crude/sexual material."

Saturday, June 2, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E7 WASHINGTON (AP) Days after President Donald Trump deemed Jeff Sessions "beleaguered" and threatened to re him last July, members of the president's inner circle made a desperate case to save the attorney general's job. The White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, and the president's chief strate gist, Steve Bannon, pleaded with Trump during a heated Oval Ofce meeting to keep Sessions, warning that his dismissal would only pour gasoline on the Russia investigation. And, they said, it could alienate those in Trump's conservative base, supporters enamored with the attorney general's tough stances on law enforcement and immigration. Priebus and Bannon both were out of their jobs within the month. But Ses sions survived, his reprieve delivered by John Kelly as one of his rst acts as chief of staff. Ten months later, the Re publican campaign to save Sessions has continued and at least for now suc ceeded. In private meetings, public appearances on tele vision and late-night phone calls, Trump's advisers and allies have done all they can to persuade the president not to re a Cabinet ofcial he dismisses as disloyal. The effort is one of the few effective Republican at tempts to install guardrails around a president who de lights in defying advice and breaking the rules. It's an ongoing effort, though not everyone is convinced the relationship is sustainable for the long term. As recently as this month, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said the president had raised the issue again, wondering aloud if he'd made a mistake in not ring Sessions. And both Giuliani and inuential Republican lawmakers have hinted that, once special counsel Robert Mueller's probe wraps up, Sessions could be in danger again. "There's no doubt he's complained about him, there's no doubt he has some grievances. I don't know they've aired them out yet. He's not going to re him before this is over," Giuliani told reporters Wednesday. "Nor do I think he should." Trump showed Wednesday the campaign to save Sessions hasn't tempered his anger at the attorney general's decision to recuse himself from the Russia probe, an act the president believed birthed the Muel ler investigation, which is imperiling his presidency. In a tweet, Trump again de clared he regretted appointing the former Alabama senator to the job in a familiar, but no less stunning, public rebuke of a sitting Cabinet ofcial. Despite the withering complaints, Trump appears to comprehend the potential consequences of ring Ses sions and seems resigned to the idea that he's stuck with him for the time being, ac cording to nearly a dozen people close to the decision, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations. The case that Sessions' protectors have outlined to Trump time and again largely consists of three components: Firing Sessions, a witness in Mueller's investigation of obstruction of justice, would add le gal peril to his standing in the Russia probe; doing so would anger the president's political base, which Trump cares deeply about, especially with midterm election looming this fall; and a number of Republican senators would rebel against the treatment of a longtime colleague who was following Justice Department guidelines in his recusal. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, has said that he will not schedule a conrmation hearing for another attorney general nominee if Sessions is red. Giuliani told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Trump has asked him multiple times, before and after the former New York mayor joined the president's legal team last month, about whether Sessions should have been red. Giuliani said Trump con sulted him last summer during the height of his rage about Sessions' recu sal. More recently, he said, Trump has not actively con sidered ring Sessions but has wondered if he made the right decision in not do ing so previously. "And when he asks, 'Should I have done that?' I say, 'No, the way it is now has worked out,'" Giuliani said, adding that he did not believe Trump would re Sessions. Later, speaking to reporters at the White House, he compared the president's temper to that of the late George Stein brenner, the mercurial owner of the New York Yankees. Inuential conservatives have also heard Trump lash out about Sessions and, though some have sympa thy for the concerns, have repeatedly talked him out of doing anything drastic, said one person in touch with both men who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations. The person recalled a venting session after a meeting at the White House last fall, when the presi dent aired his frustrations with the attorney general about his recusal. The per son expressed sympathy but argued against ring Ses sions, in part because of his success in carrying out the president's agenda. Trump's complaints about Sessions have at times won sympathy from some friends who believe Sessions' recusal was too broad and ill-timed and un dercut the positive attention from a State of the Union address the president had recently delivered. While the recusal re mains Sessions' original sin in Trump's eyes, the presi dent has also fumed that he sees Sessions as failing to get a handle on immigra tion and not placing enough emphasis on combating transnational criminal organizations. After being berated by Trump over the recusal de cision last spring, Sessions offered his resignation, but the overture was rejected. He is widely viewed as de termined to stay in the job because he believes in the president's agenda, which largely mirrors his own interests, and is reluctant to leave a job for which he gave up a Senate seat. Hours after the president's attack on Wednesday, Ses sions visited the White House for a routine litigation issue, a Justice Department ofcial said. There may be a limit to how long the campaign to save Sessions can hold on. Giuliani on Wednesday only offered assurances Trump would not re Ses sions during the Mueller investigation, because of the "distraction" it would cause. And a number of Republican senators who have supported Sessions have indicated in recent days that they are warming to Trump's complaints. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who in March said ring Sessions would "blow up" the Senate Judiciary Committee, struck a different tone Wednesday, noting that Cabinet positions are "not lifetime appointments." Looking ahead to fall elec tions, he has reinforced to Trump that the best ap proach now "is to keep focused on good governance in the midterms." At some point, Graham said, Sessions will "have to make a decision" that if "you don't have the con dence" of the president, "that will affect your ability to be effective."

Specter of trade war after US tariffs on EU, Mexico, CanadaWASHINGTON (AP) The Trump administration announced Thursday it will impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Eu rope, Mexico and Canada af ter failing to win concessions from the American allies. Eu rope and Mexico pledged to retaliate quickly, exacerbat ing trans-Atlantic and North American trade tensions. Financial markets fell amid fears of a trade war. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the tariffs would be 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum, and go into effect on Friday, as the administration followed through on the pen alties after earlier granting exemptions to buy time for negotiations. President Donald Trump had announced the tariffs in March, citing national security concerns. The European Commission's president, Jean-Claude Juncker, said Trump's decision amounted to trade protectionism and that Europe would respond with countermeasures. "This is protectionism, pure and simple," Juncker said. Mexico said it would penalize U.S. im ports including pork bellies, apples, grapes, cheeses and at steel. The U.S. action widens a rift with America's clos est allies, threatens to drive up prices for companies and consumers that buy steel and aluminum, heightens uncer tainty for businesses and is already alarming investors in global nancial markets. Financial markets dipped amid concerns about the disputes among trading partners, with the Dow Jones industrial average dropped more than 200 points. The tariffs directed at some of the U.S.'s most ardent al lies represented the latest move in Trump's "America First" agenda that has roiled nancial markets and raised the specter of a trade war involving the U.S., China and some of the globe's most dominant economies. The trade actions have opened the U.S. to criticism that it's burning bridges at a time when Trump is seeking to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons and help stabilize the Middle East. "We are alienating all of our friends and partners at a time when we could really use their support," said Wendy Cutler, a former U.S. trade negotiator who is now vice president at the Asia Society Policy Institute. Ross told reporters that talks with Canada and Mex ico over revising the North American Free Trade Agreement were "taking longer than we had hoped." Talks with Europe had "made some progress" but not enough for additional exemptions, he said in a conference call from Paris. "We continue to be quite willing and indeed eager to have further discussions," Ross said. He said he planned to travel to China on Friday for trade talks between the world's two biggest econo mies. European ofcials had braced for the tariffs and the EU has threatened to re taliate against U.S. orange juice, peanut butter and other goods in return. In terms of the NAFTA talks, the tariffs could hinder the negotiations among the North American neighbors. On NAFTA, Ross said there was "no longer a very precise date when they may be concluded and therefore (Canada and Mexico) were added into the list of those who will bear tariffs." Brazil, Argentina and Aus tralia have agreed to limit steel shipments to the U.S. in exchange for being spared the tariffs, the Commerce Department said. Tariffs will remain on imports from Ja pan. Fears of a global trade war are already weighing on in vestor condence and could hinder the global economic upturn. European ofcials ar gue that tit-for-tat tariffs will hurt growth on both sides of the Atlantic and Canada said before the announcement that it would respond in kind. "Canada considers it frankly absurd that we would in any way be considered to be a national security threat to the United States," Cana dian Foreign Minister Chrys tia Freeland said before the tariffs were announced. "The government is absolutely prepared to and will defend Canadian industries and Canadian jobs. We will respond appropriately." German Chancellor Angela Merkel stressed her opposition even before the U.S. announcement, saying the looming tariffs were in compatible with World Trade Organization rules. She said if there were no exemptions, "We will respond in an in telligent, decisive and joint way." France's nance minister, Bruno Le Maire, called the U.S. tariffs "unjustied, un justiable and dangerous." "This will only lead to the victory of those who want less growth, those who don't think we can develop our economies across the world. We think on the contrary that global trade must have rules in a context of multilateral ism. We are ready to rebuild this multilateralism with our American friends," he said.Saving SessionsInside the GOP effort to protect the AG

Page E8, As remnants of Subtrop ical Storm Alberto spread into the Great Lakes re gion, people were keeping a weary watch on dams and hillsides Thursday as rains from the storms have triggered oods and mudslides in the Appalachians of the Southeast. In the North Carolina mountains, one of those landslides was blamed for a gas leak that destroyed a home, killing two people. Boone police Sgt. Shane Robbins said the landslide resulted in the "catastroph ic destruction" of the home Wednesday afternoon because of a gas leak. And in Virginia, rescu ers were searching for three people feared to have been swept away by ood waters. In central Virginia, a swift water rescue team was searching for two people who were seen be ing swept away by a ash ood's torrent of muddy water Wednesday night, according to a news re lease from the city of Charlottesville. By early Thursday, was no sign of the missing couple. North of that, authorities were searching road side woodlands for a third missing person. The Madison County Sheriff's Ofce said in a Facebook post Thursday morning that rescuers were searching for a missing person after getting a report of a female in the water. The post said the person was reported missing around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday and the search had been ongo ing overnight. Elsewhere, four North Carolina dams being closely watched by a state team of special engineers were holding up, Gov. Roy Cooper said Wednesday. But Cooper went ahead and declared a state of emergency for his hard-hit mountain counties, saying the forecast for the rest of the week calls for isolated heavy rain storms that could instantly cause ooding in areas that have had 20 inches (50 centime ters) of rain in the past 15 days. "This storm isn't yet over. I'm urging people to keep a close eye on fore casts," Cooper said. Alberto, while still spin ning like a classic tropi cal storm, has managed to make its way since a Memorial Day landfall in the Florida Panhandle to just outside of Chicago. Forecasters said it would still bring rain and gusty winds to the Great Lakes this week. Alberto's heavy rains have been widespread. Scattered ooding was reported in several states from Alabama through Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, the Carolinas and Virginia and West Virgin ia. In Hopkinsville, Kentucky, high winds and heavy rains gave Sherry Key a tful night's sleep. "I have dogs and they're terribly afraid of storms, so they were on top on top me all night," said Key, an airport ofce manager. The worst of the ood ing was in the Appalachian Mountains. Up to 7 inches (18 centimeters) of rain caused ooding in Helen, a mountain town in Geor gia, the National Weather Service said. Atlanta station WAGATV reported that several roads near the downtown area of that German-styled tourist destination were shut down because of the rising water. No injuries were reported. Two deaths had been reported during the storm's passage. A television news anchor and a photojournalist were killed Monday in North Carolina while covering the weather, when a tree became uprooted from rain-soaked ground and toppled onto their SUV, authorities said. WYFF-TV of Greenville, South Carolina, said news anchor Mike McCormick and photojournalist Aaron Smeltzer died. In the mountains of North Carolina, two De partment of Transportation workers survived a close call when their dump truck was swept away by a mud slide in McDowell County while trying to clean debris from an earlier slide. The men were able to climb from the overturned truck and stand on its side in the Catawba River until they were rescued, Gov. Cooper said. Authorities in Cuba say Alberto left four people dead there as the storm drenched the island in heavy rain. Interior Min ister Julio Cesar Gandarilla said late Tuesday they died as a result of "recklessness" during the storm. He gave no details. The deaths occurred as authorities worked to contain an oil spill in central Cu ba's Cienfuegos Bay that followed the ooding of nearby oil renery.

(AP) After a longer build-up than usual, the dramatic nal rounds of the Scripps National Spelling Bee be gan on Thursday. Forty-one spellers ad vanced to the nals out of a eld of 516 by far the largest in the 93-year history of the competition. Scripps started a wild-card program this year that cre ated a path to nationals for spellers who didn't win their regional bees, and some of the nalists got to the bee that way. The past 13 champions and 18 of the last 22 have been Indian-American, and that trend could easily con tinue. Most of the consen sus favorites in this year's bee have Indian heritage, including Shruthika Padhy, who tied with two others for the best score on the test. More than 500 spellers tested their skill in front of pronouncer Jacques Bailly or his backup, the Rev. Brian Sietsema, over two days of preliminary rounds. Nearly 200 misspelled words onstage. Those who advanced to Thursday's nal rounds got there by spelling two words correctly on stage over two days and faring well on a written spelling and vo cabulary test and usually by spending multiple hours a day studying at home to prepare. One of the top scorers was Shruthika, a 12-yearold from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, who nished sev enth in last year's bee and is considered one of the favor ites this year. But even she got a few answers wrong. "We thought it was an easy test," bee director Paige Kimble said. "We were wrong." Here are some other stories from spellers at this year's bee:STRETCHED THINSome spellers devote years to studying the dictionary, word roots and language patterns. Then there's Rebekah Zeigler. The 13-year-old from Polo, Illinois, is certainly an accomplished speller. She's competing for the fourth time, although she's never made the nals. That may be because she also competes in tumbling, volleyball, soccer, softball, basketball, cheerleading and track and eld. Next month she'll be at the U.S. Trampoline and Tumbling Association national cham pionships. "I don't have a lot of free time," Rebekah said. Rebekah got some of the loudest cheers in the pre liminary rounds, mostly from a crew of fellow vet eran spellers. Rebekah had never gotten past the second round of onstage spelling, known as Round 3, because a writ ten test constitutes the rst round. But she spelled "yar row" correctly and achieved her goal for the week, add ing, "I was really nervous and dreading it all week."UNUSUAL REPRIEVEReagan Remmers of Mis soula, Montana, was heading out to lunch with her mom after she misspelled "balaclava." Or so she thought. "My mom got a phone call that told her I was rein stated," Reagan said. "I was like, 'Oh, sweet!'" Turns out, the spelling Reagan gave "Balaklava" is a city in Ukraine. Since the judges didn't warn her that her word had a homonym and because Reagan didn't ask for the deni tion a garment covering the head and neck except for parts of the face her spelling was deemed cor rect after further review. "I had no idea what the word meant," Reagan said. Still, her spelling wasn't a complete guess. She asked for the language of origin and was told it was Crime an, which led her to include a "k'' instead of a "c." This was just the fth time in 20 years that a speller was reinstated after judges had determined he or she misspelled a word, Kimble said.DEAD AIRConsidering how far he had to travel to get to the bee, Daniel Doudna can be forgiven for taking his time at the microphone. Daniel lives in Fairbanks, Alaska, one of three spell ers from the state. But the 4,100-mile (6,600-kilometer) trip to Washington is nothing new for the 14-yearold: This is his second time in the bee, and two of his older sisters also competed. When Daniel starts spell ing, he's more deliberate than most, pausing after each letter and letting si lence hang in the air. His word on Wednesday was "quietude," and he created some. "I made too many mistakes by going fast," he said. "After each letter, I mentally review the word to see what the next letter is."Alberto's last gaspMudslides and flooding in Appalachia

AroundOsceola.com CAIN ALTO, Puerto Rico (AP) After months of darkness and stiing heat, Noe Pagan was overjoyed when powerline workers arrived to restore electricity to his home deep in the lush green mountains of west ern Puerto Rico. But to his dismay, instead of raising a power pole toppled by Hurricane Maria, the fed eral contractors bolted the new 220-volt line to the narrow trunk of a bread fruit tree a safety code violation virtually guaran teed to leave Pagan and his neighbors blacked out in a future hurricane. "I asked the contrac tors if they were going to connect the cable to the post and they just didn't answer," said Pagan, a 23-year-old garage work er. After an eight-month, $3.8 billion federal effort to try to end the longest blackout in United States history, ofcials say Puer to Rico's public electri cal authority, the nation's largest, is almost certain to collapse again when the next hurricane hits this is land of 3.3 million people. "It's a highly fragile and vulnerable system that really could suffer worse damage than it suffered with Maria in the face of another natural catastro phe," Puerto Rican Gov. Ricardo Rossello said. Another weather disas ter is increasingly likely as warmer seas turbocharge the strongest hurricanes into even more powerful and wetter storms. Federal forecasters say there's a 75 percent likelihood that the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, which begins Fri day, will produce between ve and nine hurricanes. And there's a 70 percent chance that as many as four of those could be ma jor Category 3, 4, or 5 hur ricanes, with winds of 111 mph (179 kph) or higher. "It's inevitable that Puerto Rico will get hit again," said Assistant Sec retary Bruce Walker, head of the U.S. Department of Energy's Ofce of Elec tricity, which is planning the long-term redesign of the grid run by the Puerto Rico Electric Power Au thority. Despite the billions plowed into the grid since Maria hit on Sept. 20, 2017, Puerto Rican ofcials warn that it could take far less than a Cat egory 4 storm like Maria to cause a blackout like the one that persists today, with some 11,820 homes and businesses still without power. "The grid is there, but the grid isn't there. It's tee tering," said Hector Pes quera, Puerto Rico's com missioner of public safety. "Even if it's a (Category) 1, it is in such a state that I think we're going to lose power. I don't know for how long." Federal ofcials and Puerto Rican leaders blame decades of mis management that left the island's power author ity more than $9 billion in debt after declaring bankruptcy last year. Expensive projects were launched then cancelled. Politicians approved cheap power for well-connected corporations. By the time Maria hit, wooden power poles were rotted, transmission towers had rusted through and overgrown trees menaced thousands of miles of power lines. In many places across Puerto Rico, federal emer gency funds allocated in the aftermath of the di saster made up for years of neglected maintenance, replacing decaying infrastructure with tens of thousands of new poles and hundreds of miles of power lines rushed from the U.S. mainland at a steep premium. But in other areas, crews without adequate supplies patched together damaged poles and power lines in a desperate push to re store power. In the western highlands, power cables were spliced together and woven haphazardly through trees in blatant violation of basic safety codes. In Pagan's town of Cain Alto and at least one other location, trees were used as makeshift power poles in the absence of proper equipment. "We patched things up. We worked with the little material that was available and we recycled ma terial. We took the 1,000 feet of wire that was on the ground and we strung it up in another area," one power authority worker said, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation from management. "We took the post that had fallen over or broken and we put it up somewhere else. A lot of the work is defective." Fredyson Martinez, vice president of the power authority workers' union, said he estimates that roughly 10 percent to 15 percent of the repair work done over the last eight months did not meet basic quality standards. "The logistics were ter rible. I give it an F," he said. "Things need to be xed." Federal and Puerto Ri can ofcials are preparing for another catastrophe that cuts power for weeks or month. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is leaving some 600 generators installed in key sites such as hospitals and water pumping sta tions, more than six times the number before Maria. FEMA has stockpiled 5.4 million liters of water and more than 80,000 tarps, and is distributing them and other emergency sup plies to towns across the island so they will be in place for the next disaster. Still, few people believe the island is truly ready. "If a hurricane comes tomorrow it will leave the island completely without power again," said Juan Rosario, a community ac tivist and former member of the power authority's board of directors. Up to 4,645 more deaths than usual occurred in Puerto Rico in the three months after Maria, con tends a new study pub lished this week by the New England Journal of Medicine, an estimate that far exceeds the ofcial government death toll of 64. Ofcials now are warning Puerto Ricans to stockpile enough emer gency supplies to survive as long as 10 days without help. Tens of thousands of homes still don't have roofs. FEMA distributed 59,000 enormous plastic sheets to homeowners who lost their roofs in Irma or Maria. More than 100,000 more received smaller tarps to protect specic rooms or belongings. Only 21,000 households have received federal aid to car ry out permanent repairs. Juana Sostre Vasquez's wooden house in the central highlands was ripped off its foundation by Ma ria. With the help of a sonin-law, the 69-year-old rebuilt, using cinderblocks and cement bought with $14,000 in FEMA recon struction aid. Her roof is metal sheeting nailed onto wooden two-by-fours because she couldn't afford to build stronger. She says she's hopeful the next hurricane won't send that sheeting ying. "The money didn't let us do the roof," she said. "I'm doing it little by little as I save a couple of dollars." Mike Byrne, the head of FEMA's Caribbean ofce, says he expects the federal government will eventually have spent a total of $17.5 billion in emergency funds on xing the hurri cane damage and making Puerto Rico's grid more resilient to future storms. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers ended its power restoration work in May, so future funding is expected to pass through Puerto Ri co's bankrupt power com pany. After receiving $945 million in federal funds for repairs to the island's electric grid, Oklahomabased Mammoth Energy Services announced Monday that the power au thority had awarded its subsidiary, Cobra Energy, another $900 million to nish the job and begin fortifying the grid against future storms. Last week, Cobra's crews were working to rebuild one of a pair of 230-kilo-volt transmission lines climbing from Puerto Rico's main power plants on its southern coast across high mountains to the main users of energy in the capital, San Juan, and other industrial sites and population centers in the north. Because of a de cision years ago to stretch the island's main transmis sion lines through a nar row path across the rug ged mountains, one of the transmission lines must be turned off so its powerful current doesn't energize equipment and workers la boring a few feet away. Cobra transmission director Alan Edwards had more than 50 linemen working on the repair, at nearly $4,000 per worker per day in federal funds from the Puerto Rico pow er authority, when he got the call to stop. A aw was causing a transmission line to overheat danger ously elsewhere in the sys tem, so the line alongside where Edwards' men were working would have to be returned to service, forcing the crews to stop for at least the rest of the day. "Maybe we're back at it tomorrow, I don't know. May be next week before we can get back out there," Edwards said. The already stagger ing reconstruction costs will rise by billions more if another hurricane hits. And many billions worth of those federally funded improvements could even tually pass into private hands: Puerto Rico's Sen ate could approve the sale of much of the island's power grid to a private power company or companies as early as this week. The potential sale won't affect the federal govern ment's decision to spend billions of dollars on repairing and improving the grid, said Byrne, the head of FEMA's operations in the Caribbean. "I can't wait, because these are U.S. citizens that are at risk. U.S. citizens deserve every ounce of ef fort that I can bring to this, and that's what they're going to get," Byrne said.

This recipe appears in the cookbook Nutri tious Delicious. By AMERICA'S TEST KITCHENThere's no denying the novel ap peal of cake pops; after all, everyone loves food on a stick, and if it's dessert, even better. Most recipes call for starting with cake made from a store-bought mix, breaking it into crumbs, combining it with canned frosting, and forming the mixture into balls. We knew we could do better. Making a simple homemade yel low cake was easy enough and far superior to anything from a box; baking it in an 8-inch square pan gave us just enough cake for about three dozen pops. While traditional frosting worked as a binder, tasters found the pops overwhelmingly sweet. Moistening the crumbs with milk worked just as well, and a couple of tablespoons of confectioners' sugar provided just enough sweetness. Briey freezing the cookie dough-like cake balls made them rm enough to stay put on their sticks, and also helped set the coat ing of melted chocolate chips (chips worked better than bar chocolate because their stabilizers created a smooth, snappy coating). We like to use a 2-cup liquid mea suring cup to melt the chocolate; its tall, narrow sides allow for eas ier coating of the cake balls. You'll need a oral foam block (available at craft stores and online) to stand the cake pops upright as the coating sets. If you're unable to nd one, stand the dipped cake pops upside down on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet (note that this will give the tops a at appearance). To make different colors for the coating, add drops of food coloring to the melted white chocolate chips.PARTY CAKE POPSMakes: 36 cake pops Start to nish: 4 hours 1 1/2 cups (7 1/2 ounces) all-pur pose our 1 cup (7 ounces) granulated sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 1/2 cup sour cream 1 large egg plus 2 large yolks, room temperature 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/4 cup milk 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar 2 1/2 cups (15 ounces) white chocolate chips or semisweet choc olate chips Lollipop sticks Multicolored nonpareil sprinkles Adjust oven rack to middle posi tion and heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 8-inch square baking pan, line with parchment paper, grease parchment, and our pan. Whisk our, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt together in bowl of stand mixer. Fit stand mixer with paddle; add butter, sour cream, egg and yolks, and vanilla; and beat on medium speed until smooth and satiny, about 30 seconds. Scrape down bowl with rubber spatula and stir by hand until smooth and no our pockets remain. Scrape batter into prepared pan and smooth top with rubber spatula. Gently tap pan on counter to release air bubbles. Bake until light golden and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes, rotating pan halfway through baking. Let cake cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pan, discarding parchment, and let cool completely on rack, about 2 hours. (Cake can be wrapped in plastic wrap and stored at room temperature for up to 24 hours.) In clean, dry bowl of stand mixer tted with paddle, break cake into rough 1-inch pieces. Add milk and confectioners' sugar and beat on medium-low speed until broken into ne, evenly moistened crumbs and cohesive dough begins to form, about 1 minute, scraping down bowl as needed. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Working with 1 packed tablespoon cake mixture at a time, roll into balls and place in single layer on prepared sheet.

Dip entire cake ball into melted chocolate and turn until completely coated (tip ping measuring cup to the side as needed). Lift up from chocolate (do not turn upright) and gently shake side to side to allow excess coat ing to drip off evenly. Turn cake pop upright, gently twist back and forth to even out coating, and insert stick into foam block. Sprinkle with nonpareils.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump and Democratic critics traded outraged, sometimes plainly false accusations about im migration as the debate over "lost" children and the practice of separating families caught crossing the border illegally reached a new boil ing point. The White House on Tuesday wrongly blamed Demo crats for forcing Trump's administration to separate children from parents. Liber al activists and others, including some from media outlets, tried to highlight the issue by tweeting photos of young people in steel cages that ac tually were taken during the Obama administration. Oth ers seized on reports the gov ernment had "lost" more than 1,000 children, though that wasn't quite the case. It all comes just in time for the midterm elections as Re publicans and Democrats try to rally core voters by pointing ngers at one another. Trump won the presidency promising to build a wall along the southern border and end illegal immigration, and the White House believes stressing the same issues will drive voters to the polls and help the GOP hang on to their majorities in the Senate and House. The White House is "re ally beating the immigra tion drum in the lead-up to the midterm elections as a rallying cry and as a way of mobilizing voter support for Trump and the candidates that he chooses," said Doris Meissner, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute and former commissioner of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service during the Clin ton administration. "It does seem to provoke a ratcheting up across the board." Indeed, the situation grew so hostile over the holiday weekend that the president's elder daughter, White House adviser Ivanka Trump, came under re for tweeting a pho to of herself and her youngest son in their pajamas Sunday morning. "Focus on what is before you, on what you can control and ignore the trolls!" she later wrote. During a White House conference call Tuesday, se nior adviser Stephen Miller contended "the current immigration and border crisis" is "the exclusive product of loopholes in federal immi gration law that Democrats refuse to close." That was after Trump lit up social media over the week end by falsely claiming there was a "horrible law" that separates children from their parents after they cross the border illegally. He had said previously that "we have to break up families" at the bor der because "the Democrats gave us that law." But there's no law man dating that parents must be separated from their children, and it's not a policy Demo crats have pushed or can change alone as the minor ity in Congress. The tactic's increased use is being driven by Trump's administration, which recently announced a new "zero-tolerance policy" in which it will press crimi nal charges against all people crossing the border illegally, even if they have few or no previous offenses. More children are expected to be sepa rated from their parents as a result. A Customs and Border Protection ofcial told lawmakers last week that 658 children had been separated from their parents at the bor der from May 6 to May 19 as the parents face charges. That's in addition to hundreds more who were estimated to have been removed from their parents since October. The practice has drawn condemnation from Trump critics, who have long accused him of supporting in humane policies in his efforts to crack down on illegal im migration. "He actually called the practice horrible. If he thinks it's so horrible then he ought to just end it and not make the children a negotiating tool," said Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the American Civil Liberties Union's Immigrants' Rights Project. "It's never a good idea to separate small children from their parents," said Rep. Car los Curbelo, R-Fla. "I cannot defend that, nor do I wish to." Curbelo is a leader of GOP lawmakers trying to force House immigration votes next month over leaders' ob jections. Trump foes made their own missteps in the debate. Over the weekend, some critics of the policy tweeted photos of young-looking im migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border in steel cages and blamed the Trump admin istration for separating im migrant children from their parents. The problem: The photos were taken by The Associated Press in 2014, when Barack Obama was in ofce, and the photo captions reference children who crossed the border as unac companied minors. How or why the story re surfaced on social media four years after it was published was unclear. But Trump seized on the error. "Democrats mistakenly tweet 2014 pictures from Obama's term showing chil dren from the Border in steel cages. They thought it was recent pictures in order to make us look bad, but backres," Trump tweeted Tuesday. "Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Pro tection for good of country ... Bipartisan Bill!" It's unclear what "Biparti san Bill!" Trump might have been referring to. Congress is heading to ward an immigration show down in the House as Re publican moderates force a June vote on legislation to protect young "Dreamer" immigrants and beef up border security. GOP leaders are trying to stop the bill, which has robust support from Democrats and some Republicans. They're worried any legislation that smacks of "amnesty" for im migrants in the U.S. illegally would dampen conservative enthusiasm ahead of the mid terms. Instead, House Speaker Paul Ryan and his leadership team are trying to put togeth er an alternative approach that most Republicans would support. But nding com mon ground remains dif cult. Trump so far has not engaged in the Capitol Hill debate, even as he repeatedly insists Congress must act. Also making the rounds on social media over the holiday weekend: Allegations that children placed in custody have been "lost" by federal authorities, which ofcials say isn't the case. The allegation, which sparked #WhereAreOurChildren on Twitter, grew out of testimony in April by a fed eral ofcial that the government had lost track of nearly 1,500 unaccompanied minor children it placed with adult sponsors in the U.S. An ofcial from the Health and Human Services Depart ment told a congressional hearing last month that his department placed followup phone calls from October to December to U.S. house holds that were sponsor ing minors who crossed the border without their parents. They reached 86 percent of the children or sponsors, but the department could not verify the whereabouts of 1,475. In some cases, sponsors simply didn't respond to the follow-up phone call, not surprising because many are themselves in the U.S. il legally and reluctant to speak to authorities. "If you call a friend and they don't answer the phone, you don't assume that they've been kidnapped," HHS' Ste ven Wagner said. Ofcials said Tuesday they are planning more thorough screening of both minors and their sponsors, includ ing a ngerprint background check of every sponsor.

The photos were taken by The Associated Press in 2014, when President Barack Obama was in ofce. False accusations about immigration fly between opponents Gowdy disputes Trump's 'spy' claim, says FBI acted properlyWASHINGTON (AP) There is no evidence that the FBI planted a "spy" on Presi dent Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, a senior House Republican said Wednesday, directly contradicting Trump's repeated insistence that the agency inserted a "spy for political reasons and to help Crooked Hillary win." Rep. Trey Gowdy, chair man of the House Oversight Committee and a longtime Trump supporter, was briefed last week by the Justice De partment and FBI following reports that investigators relied on a U.S. government informant in its investigation into Russian election med dling. "I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got and that it has nothing to do with Donald Trump," Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican, told Fox News on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Gowdy said he had "never heard the term 'spy' used" and did not see evidence of that. "Informants are used all day, every day by law enforcement," he told "CBS This Morning." Gowdy's comments are particularly striking because of his role as a powerful GOP watchdog who took on Dem ocrat Hillary Clinton in his committee's investigation into the 2012 attacks on American in Benghazi, Libya, while she was secretary of state. The probe unearthed the existence of Clinton's private email server, which triggered an FBI inquiry and crippled her 2016 presidential campaign against Trump. Gowdy announced in January that he would retire from Congress at the end of the current term and return to work in the justice system. Trump has zeroed in on, and at times embellished, reports on the informant, call ing it "spygate" and tweeting that it was "starting to look like one of the biggest politi cal scandals in U.S. history." Trump has also rejected as sertions by the U.S. intelligence agencies that the Rus sian government was trying to help him beat Clinton. Trump's legal team has asked to review classied in formation about the origins of the FBI investigation to pre pare the president for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is now leading the investigation into ties between Trump's cam paign and Russia. "The folks who have seen the information have the same perspective," Gowdy said. "The folks who have not seen the information, I don't know what informs their per spective." Gowdy, did, however, ex press support for Trump's "frustration" with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused himself in May 2017 from the Russia probe based on possible conict of inter est. The recusal of Sessions, an early backer of Trump's presidential bid, followed the revelation that he had two previously undisclosed interactions during the 2016 campaign with the Russian ambassador. Gowdy told CBS that Trump is just "expressing frustration that Attorney Gen eral Sessions should have shared these reasons for recu sal before he took the job. Not afterward." Trump tweeted out Gowdy's comments on Sessions, including his saying that "there are lots of really good lawyers in the country" and that the president "could have picked someone else" for the top Justice Depart ment job. "And I wish I did!" Trump wrote. Trump did not reference Gowdy's comments that there was no evidence of the FBI planting a spy on his cam paign.

Page E12, JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) On a dreary overcast day, Missouri Gov. Eric Gre itens stood in a light rain near the Governor's Mansion and recounted his grueling training as a Navy SEAL ofcer to suggest he would never quit ghting allegations of sexual misconduct and campaign nance violations. Less than two weeks later, Greitens announced Tuesday that he is quitting with his mission incomplete. "The time has come, though, to tend to those who have been wounded and to care for those who need us most," said the Republican governor, his voice cracking while his team members struggled to hold back tears. "So for the moment, let us walk off the battleeld with our heads held high." Greitens' departure will be come ofcial at 5 p.m. Friday marking a stunning politi cal defeat for the 44-year-old, self-made warrior-philosopher who had aspirations of someday becoming president. For those fellow Republicans who had strenuously urged his resignation, Greit ens' exit provides the divided party a chance to reunify at the start of a summer cam paign season in which it's seeking to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill. Greitens' resignation also allows him to avoid the poten tially dubious distinction of becoming the rst Missouri governor ever impeached. A House investigatory com mittee had subpoenaed Gre itens to testify next Monday during a special monthlong session focused solely on his potential discipline. Fellow Republican Lt. Gov. Mike Parson a for mer state lawmaker and sher iff is to serve the remain der of Greitens' term, which runs until January 2021. In addition to the legisla tive investigation Greitens faced a felony charge in St. Louis of tampering with computer data for disclosing a donor list of The Mission Continues to his political fundraiser in 2015 without the permission of the St. Lou is-based veterans' charity he founded. A special prosecutor from Kansas City also is weighing whether to rele a re cently dismissed invasion-ofprivacy charge in St. Louis alleging that Greitens took and transmitted a nonconsensual photo of a partially nude woman with whom he acknowledged having an affair in 2015. The St. Louis prosecutor's ofce said it had reached a "fair and just resolution" on criminal charges against Greitens now that he's leav ing ofce, and that more de tails would be made public Wednesday. But the special prosecutor from Kansas City said Tuesday that her investigation is ongoing. Greitens could face other investigations. The chairman of the House investigatory committee and an attorney representing the woman's exhusband both have said they have shared information with FBI agents looking into the governor. A complaint also remains pending at the Missouri Ethics Commission alleging Greitens led a false cam paign report last year about the source of the charity do nor list. On May 17, Greitens sug gested to a crowd of support ers gathered for an agricul tural event that wouldn't give up. "No matter what they throw at me, no matter how painful they try to make it, no matter how much suffer ing they want to put me and my family through and my team through ... we are going to step forward day after day after day, and we are going to continue in our mission to ght for the people of Missouri," Greitens said then. On Tuesday, Greitens re mained deant even while resigning. "I am not perfect. But I have not broken any laws or committed any offense worthy of this treatment," he said. "I will let the fairness of this process be judged by history." Greitens is a married fa ther of two young sons. He is a Rhodes scholar with a doc toral degree in politics who traveled the world on hu manitarian missions before joining the Navy. After being wounded in Iraq, he founded a veterans' charity and be came a best-selling author and motivational speaker. He campaigned as a political outsider in 2016, winning an expensive Republican gubernatorial primary and then defeating Democratic Attor ney General Chris Koster in the general election to give Missouri Republicans con trol of the governor's man sion for the rst time in eight years. Greitens had a sometimes rocky relationship with the GOP-controlled Legislature as he pushed his agenda, once comparing them to third-graders and frequently denouncing them as "career politicians." His support in the Capi tol unraveled further after the night of Jan. 10, when a St. Louis TV station aired a report featuring an audio recording secretly made by a woman's ex-husband. In that, the woman describes how Greitens allegedly bound her hands, blindfolded her and took a compromising photo while threatening that he would distribute it if she ever spoke of their encounter. Greitens denied threatening blackmail, but hasn't directly answered questions about whether he took the photo. A St. Louis grand jury in dicted Greitens on Feb. 22 on one felony count of invasion of privacy related to the al leged photo. That prompted the Missouri House to form a special investigatory com mittee. In April, the legislative panel released a report con taining graphic testimony in which the woman said Gre itens had restrained, slapped, shoved and belittled her during a series of sexual en counters that at times left her crying and afraid. Greitens denied any violence and said the allegations amounted to a "political witch hunt." He vowed to stay in ofce. But Greitens' troubles deepened in the ensuing weeks when Republican At torney General Josh Hawley who is running for Mc Caskill's seat referred evi dence to the St. Louis pros ecutor leading to the felony charge alleging misuse of the charity donor list. A May 2 House committee report indicated that Greitens himself received the donor list while CEO of the char ity and later directed political aides to work off it. Shortly before Greitens resigned Tuesday, the House panel heard a second round of tes timony from former aide Michael Hafner about the charity donor list and other efforts by Greitens' campaign to conceal the original source of some political donations. Earlier Tuesday, a judge also ruled that a secretive pro-Greitens nonprot group called A New Missouri must comply with a legislative subpoena for any documents or communications showing potential coordination between the organization, Gre itens and his campaign com mittee. The subpoena also sought receipts, content and communications by A New Missouri related to media advertising. The judge said the identi ties of donors to A New Mis souri which don't have to be publicly disclosed because it is a 501c4 organization could be redacted from the documents. The legislative panel also had subpoenaed other Greitens' campaign aides. CITIZEN TRIBUNENationEEE-4 Wednesday, May 30, 2018 APMissouri Gov. Eric Greitens reads from a prepared statement as he announces his resig nation during a news conference, Tuesday, May 29, 2018, at the state Capitol, in Jefferson City, Mo.

Greitens said his resignation would take effect Friday.Missouri governor who vowed to fight scandal instead quitsNeed an entry-level job at a store? It can be harder nowNEW YORK (AP) Asia Thomas knew she was at a disadvantage. It had been 16 years since she quit a job at McDonald's to raise her kids. When she left, restaurants didn't have kiosks to take or ders, people didn't use smart phones to pay, and job seekers did applications on paper. "Things have changed," said Thomas, who lives in Baltimore. "And there were a lot of things I forgot." Getting a job at a store or fast-food restaurant often a way into the economy for an unskilled worker used to be as simple as walking up and down the mall and apply ing. Now, with store chains closing and laying off thousands of workers, that path is more complicated. The stores that remain nancially healthy are actually raising wages in a tight labor market. But they're seeking a new type of worker one who has a lot more skills up front. Thomas, 44, was able to get a job at wholesale club B.J.'s for $12 an hour but that was only after signing up for computer lessons and tak ing a class in retail basics like how to track inventory and handle issues like returns. That led her to another op portunity at a casino. Across all entry-level retail jobs, the number of skills being demanded rose from 2010 to 2016, according to an analysis done for The Associ ated Press by Burning Glass Technologies, which scours 25 million job postings. Burning Glass found a greater emphasis on custom er service and communications skills for cashier, stock clerk and sales oor support jobs. And for many other entry-level jobs, employers want even more skills, like the ability to use customer relations software like Salesforce. Even forklift operators are being asked to be pro cient in inventory manage ment software. This has major consequences for workers without college degrees or vocational training trying to get an eco nomic foothold. A decade ago, workers, especially young ones, could start as cashiers and move up to be come store managers or even higher. But now, it's harder to even get in the door. "The bottom may be coming out of the career ladder," said Burning Glass CEO Matt Sigelman. Experts say those who might otherwise have started out at working at a store may head instead to cleaning, dishwashing or health aide jobs. The number of jobs in those elds is expected to grow far more than in re tail. While these jobs may pay about the same as retail, they can be more demanding physically and provide less opportunity to move up. "This phenomenon is cre ating more pressure on in comes at the lower end of the middle class and will push people down closer to and even below the poverty line," said Fred Crawford, senior vice chairman of consulting rm AlixPartners. "It will exacerbate the growing gap between the haves and havenots." These changes are being driven by companies' use of large amounts of data not available a generation ago. Supermarkets, for instance, use loyalty programs to bet ter track customers' shopping habits. Clothing chains are now quickly reacting to the latest fashion trends, adjust ing the merchandise on store shelves within days. That means front-line workers must do more. Take cashiers. Employers asked for ve skills in 2016, up from three in 2010. The job often requires running sophisticated registers that track loyalty cards, digital coupons and real-time inventory. "We are looking for work ers who are not only friendly and passionate but people who are tech-savvy," said Marisa Velez, store director of DSW Designer Warehouse in New York's Union Square. That's a shift from just ve years ago, when the technology a sales clerk at the serveyourself shoes and accesso ries chain would use would involve a calculator or calling another store to check if they have an item. At DSW, Phoebe Li swift ly navigates the aisles stacked with boxes of shoes, seeing if customers need help while she scans an iPad to check on online inventory. The tablets DSW uses will soon be able to ring up a sale as well. "If I see someone bending down looking for a size, I ask them, "How is everything?'" said Li, 24, who has worked at DSW part-time since Febru ary. "Customers are coming in with limited time," Velez said. "They're rushing. They want what they are looking for. We're able to expedite that through the app, through the iPad and making sure we are respecting their time while still capturing the sale." Online home goods re tailer Wayfair is increasingly looking for customer service and warehouse workers with problem-solving skills. Its employees help customers design a room, or they gure out how to pack a truck with out damaging fragile items. So it's now recruiting gamers at places like Comic Con for those roles, said Liz Graham, who oversees customer ser vice and sales. Nearly a third of all rst jobs in the U.S. are in retail. But 62 percent of servicesector workers, which in cludes jobs like cashiers and store sales assistants, have limited literacy skills and 74 percent have limited math abilities, according to the National Skills Coalition, funded by Walmart Inc.'s charitable arm. Chains like Target and Walmart are increasing training on the job. And the non prot arm of the industry's trade and lobbying group, the National Retail Federation, launched a training and credential program for entrylevel workers last year, join ing with nonprot groups like Goodwill to teach classes. But that may not be enough to ll the skill gap. There were more than 700,000 cur rent job openings in retail in March, according to government data. The retail industry "relied on a largely unskilled entry labor force. Now, it's leaning more toward skilled people and competing with other sectors" like technology, said economist Frank Badillo, founder and director of re search at MacroSavvy. The training programs are making difference. Nadine Vixama would have never had a shot without them. Vix ama, 42, emigrated from Hai ti eight years ago and worked in a money payment business and then at a dry cleaners. But she wanted something that was more about customer service. She did snag a job at Whole Foods in Cambridge, Massachusetts, rst as a bagger and now as a cashier, making a little more than $11 an hour. But that was after taking English classes and the store basics program developed by the NRF. "I've learned to treat customers in a better way ... how to keep pace with them," Vix ama said. At another class of fered by a workplace group, she learned about spread sheet programs like Excel and studied basic accounting. Vixama just nished the second class, and shadowed a manager at CVS as part of that training. She's consider ing an entry-level job at a drugstore and mulling her options. "I don't want to stay like this," she said. "I want to have better growth opportunities."

Saturday, June 2, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E13 MOSCOW (AP) Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko turned up at a news conference in the Ukrainian capital Wednes day less than 24 hours af ter police reported he had been shot and killed at his Kiev apartment build ing. The country's security services said Babchenko's death was faked to foil a plot to take his life. Ukrainian police said Tuesday that Babchenko, a strong critic of the Kremlin, was shot multiple times in the back Tues day and found bleeding there by his wife. Authorities said they suspected he was killed because of his work. Vasyl Gritsak, head of the Ukrainian Security Service, announced at a news conference Wednesday that the security agency and the police had solved Babchenko's slay ing. He then startled everyone there by inviting the 41-year-old reporter into the room. To the applause and gasps of the press, Bab chenko took the floor and apologized to the friends and family who mourned for him and were unaware of the plan. "I'm still alive," he said. Before ushering Babchenko into the room, Gritsak said investigators had identified a Ukrainian citizen who had been re cruited and paid $40,000 by the Russian security service to organize and carry out the killing. The unidentified Ukrainian man in turn hired an acquaintance who had fought in the separatist war in eastern Ukraine as the gunman. Babchenko, one of Rus sia's best-known war re porters, fled the country in February 2017 after receiving death threats. He spoke and wrote about leaving the country be cause of the threats against him and his family.. He said his home address was published online and the threats he received were made by phone, email and social media. Ilya Ponomarev, a for mer Russian lawmaker who also moved to Ukraine, said Wednesday that Babchenko continued being threatened after he settled last fall in Kiev, where he worked as a host for the Crimean Tatar TV station. Babchenko did not take the intimidation too seriously, according to Ponomarev. Moscow's annexation of Crimea and support for separatist insurgents in eastern Ukraine were top ics on which the journalist was scathingly critical of the Kremlin.

Russian journalist reported killed in Ukraine shows up alive Belgium shooting rampage was terrorist act, prosecutors sayBRUSSELS (AP) The man who killed four people in the Belgian city of Liege this week car ried out an act of "terror ist murder" and may have intended to cause more carnage, prosecutors said Wednesday, as authorities tried to establish whether he acted alone. Benjamin Herman, an inmate on a two-day prison furlough, attacked two female police ofcers from behind with a knife on Tuesday, stabbed them repeatedly, stole their handguns and shot them as they lay on the ground, ofcials said. Crossing the road, he red several shots at a 22-year old man who was a passenger in a car, killing him. Herman then took a cleaning woman hostage at a nearby school. When police closed in, he ran out onto the sidewalk ring and police fatally shot him. Four ofcers were wounded. He yelled "Allahu akbar," the Arabic phrase for God is great, several times during Tuesday's rampage, prosecutors said. Ofcials later conrmed that Her man had also killed another person Monday. The attack has shaken Belgium where police and military have been working overtime to guard pub lic buildings for two years since coordinated suicide attacks on the Brussels airport and subway system killed 32 people and in jured hundreds on March 22, 2016. Belgian federal magis trate Wenke Roggen said Wednesday that the attack was considered "terrorist murder and attempted ter rorist murder." She said it's being treated as ter rorism given the way Her man acted, which she says resembled Islamic State calls via video to attack police with knives and steal their weapons, the fact that he yelled "Allahu Akbar" and was in contact with radicalized people. The attack started outside a Liege cafe and Rog gen said the attacker went in and out of it a few times after shooting the ofcers but that people inside had ed or hidden thanks to the quick thinking of the owner. An investigating magis trate specializing in terror ism has ordered autopsies on those killed at the scene and a toxicology examination of the attacker. Prosecutors said Her man has had several runins with police since he was a minor. He has been sentenced on assault, drug and insubordination charges. He left prison early Monday on furlough and should have returned Tuesday evening. "He also committed a murder the night before," Interior Minister Jan Jam bon told broadcaster RTL. Jambon said the fourth victim was a former in mate who did prison time with Herman. Herman is alleged to have killed the man on Monday evening by hitting him over the head with a blunt object. Jambon added that the woman he took hostage may have talked the shoot er down and helped to avoid more deaths inside the school. Jambon, Prime Minister Charles Michel and King Philippe visited the woman in hospital, where she was being treated for shock. "She was very coura geous and perhaps, but this we will have to verify, she helped avoid more victims in the school," Jambon said. The cleaning woman, identied only by her rst name Darifa, told state broadcaster RTBF that Herman said he just want ed to "stir up" the police. He asked her if she was a Muslim and if she was observing the holy fasting month of Ramadan. "He told me don't worry, I won't do anything at all. Listen, you do what I say, but don't worry. I won't do anything to you," the woman said. She said he threw his ID card on the ground before running out to confront the police. "I think he knew that it was all over for him. And he went out," she said. Jambon said an investi gation has been launched into the incident, includ ing the circumstances sur rounding Herman's release from prison. "It's really an isolated case. He wasn't part of a network, he didn't receive instructions from anyone else, so there is no need to raise the terror threat alert level," Jambon said, adding that investigators have no precise information that any other attacks might be likely. Amid questions about how two ofcers could have been disarmed, Jambon praised the work of all involved, saying "the po lice did an extraordinary job." "They reacted well. All the systems, all the proce dures worked. But if you are attacked from behind, as was the case with the two ofcers, you can't do anything," he said. The police ofcers have been identied as Soraya Belkacemi, 44, and Lucile Garcia, 54. The passen ger in the car was named as Cyril Vangriecken, 22, who was preparing to become a primary school teacher. Belgian media reports named the man killed be fore Tuesday's rampage as Michael Wilmet. In Liege, the mother of Soraya Belkacemi, Ber nadette Hennart, kissed a necklace and laid it over owers at the scene, saying it was important for her and the victim's broth er to visit the place where her daughter spent her last moments alive. Hennart said that they had come "to piece things together. No one has told me very much. Only through the media, and it's not nice. I can't stand watching it. I can't say goodbye to her." Flags were ying at half-staff on public build ings around the city and people gathered to sign a book of condolences and lay owers in memory of the victims. The prime minister joined others at the scene in a minute's si lence. Police and security ofcials also assembled in Brussels and Antwerp to mourn the loss of their two colleagues. "Every morning I am scared that something like this will happen, and ev ery day it happens closer to home," Melissa Lamny told The Associated Press after wrapping owers around a lamppost at the scene of the killings.
