By Charlie Reed For the News-Gazette e ghost of Hurricane Irma still haunts Floridas agriculture market, a mainstay of the states economy, second only to tourism. Osceola County one the states biggest agriculture producers was spared devastating losses, but some local farms and ranch operators relied upon funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to recover. Hurricane Irma nearly wiped out the areas iconic citrus crop. Some growers in South and Central Florida said they lost up to 90 percent of their crops. Osceola cattle ranchers and commercial vegetable and fruit farmers were among the luckiest in the state, overall. Irma made landfall in September in Monroe and Collier counties and then barreled up the state. Some $2.5 billion in losses including $761 million to the citrus crops alone were incurred by the agriculture industry, Floridas largest aer tourism. From property damage to flooded groves, Irma packed a punch. Much of the recovery money for ranchers and growers was distributed came from the Federal Emergency Management Agency By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Learning doesnt end when the school year ends, and neither does the need for good nutrition. A free program oering well-balanced, hot meals to students 18 and under is back this summer with seven Osceola County locations. Summer BreakSpot is a coordinated regional eort between Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and community partners to provide a free breakfast, lunch or snack to kids who may not be able to aord it otherwise. Many families whose children receive free and reduced lunch during the year find it challenging to make ends meet once summer arrives, said Nancy Brumbaugh, food services director at Second Harvest Food Bank. Our mission is to make sure no child goes hungry over the summer. Summer BreakSpot is a federally funded nutrition program administered by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services that utilizes churches, daycare centers, nonprot organizations and other community partners to get meals to students. Since the program launched in 2008, Second Harvest has provided more than 940,057 summer meals for kids. Brumbaugh said the program is projected to serve its millionth meal by the end of this summer. The All-Star Summer Camp at Chambers Park in Kissimmee is one of the seven BreakSpot sites in Osceola County. e more than 100 day-campers congregate each aernoon at the dining hall where they receive meals delivered By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Thousands of Puerto Ricans sought refuge in Central Florida following the devastation of Hurricane Maria in September. With 2018 midterms fast approaching, groups in Osceola County are ramping up voter education and registration eorts to make sure these and other Hispanic residents have a voice in the upcoming election. About 47 percent of local registered voters voluntarily identied themselves as Hispanic, according to numbers provided by Osceola County Supervisor of Elections Oce. Of those 98,801 voters, 49 percent identify as Democrats, 11 percent as Republicans and 40 percent are registered with minor parties or as independents. Still, the number of registered Latino voters hasnt increased much relative to the overall county population since 2016 only about 1.5 percent despite an inux of Puerto Rican residents. Kari Ewalt, community relations director for the Elections Oce, said this may be attributed to dierent priorities held by Puerto Rican evacuees. They may be more focused on re-building their lives than registering to vote, Ewalt said. at number may increase as we get closer to the election. A non-partisan Hispanic advocacy group called UnidosUS has set a statewide registration goal this year of 90,000 voters, with 10,000 coming from Osceola County alone.

RADER N 060718.TNG VOTERSContinued from Page 1 Caroline Wassmer has been canvassing for UnidosUS since 2012. She and other volunteers can often be spotted outside popular Latino supermarkets and restaurants in Kissimmee, especially along U.S. Highway 192 and in Hispanic-dominated neighborhoods like BVL. With the number of people increasing in the area, especially from Puerto Rico, I knew I had to get involved in this campaign, Wassmer said. UnidosUS launched three, five-person canvassing teams April 9 in Osceola County, nearly nine months prior to Election Day. Theyve been out registering and educating voters nearly every day since, and Wassmer estimates the teams speak to roughly 100 people a day. The countys rapidly growing Hispanic demographic makes Osceola a logical starting point for registration efforts, said UnitdosUS Senior Civic Engagement Strategist Jared Nordlund. We find its easier for our campaign sta to start there and work their way into Orange County, Nordlund said. Weve been registering voters since 2008, and we constantly pull 10,000 registrations during election years in Osceola County alone. Hispanics account for 52.3 percent of Osceolas overall population, compared to 30.5 percent in Orange County, according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau estimates. The numbers also show that Latino residents are increasing at a faster rate in Osceola County than in Orange. Nordlund said regulation is important this year because Florida voters have several important issues waiting for them on the November ballot. Candidates from the U.S. Senate all the way down to the local school board and county commission are facing tight midterm races, as well as 13 proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution. A lot of these offices have far reaching impacts on our lives, Nordlund said. We want to make sure members of our community have their voices heard not just during a presidential year, but during every election. While UnidosUS focuses on registration and mobilization of Latinos, another organization called the LIBRE Imitative is lending a hand in political education eorts. LIBRE may not register voters directly, but the two groups share a common goal to inform citizens nationwide about issues affecting the Hispanic community, including immigration, education and healthcare reform. Bridging knowledge gaps is vital to new Hispanic residents who may be unfamiliar with the U.S. political system, said LIBRE Executive Director Brian Velazquez. You have people coming over to the mainland United States, and the word Democrat and Republican doesnt mean anything to them, Velazquez said. I think the main obstacle is getting people to understand why they should be engaged, that we have midterm as well as presidential elections in this country, and part of that is getting them familiar with candidates and how the system works. Other hinderances, like language barriers and immigration status, may prevent otherwise civicallyoriented individuals from voting in U.S. elections, Velazquez said. Hispanics are very resilient and very resourceful, he said. If theyre interested in something, they will find a way to overcome those barriers, especially if theres people there to show them how. Summer doesnt arrive until June 21, but temperatures make it feel like the seasons have already changed. An early season heat wave combined with a lack of aernoon thunderstorms has forced residential and commercial air conditioners to work overtime, resulting in a surge in electricity use in Kissimmee on Monday, according to a Kissimmee Utility Authority press release. As temperatures rise, so does demand for air conditioning. Energy demand on Monday reached 360 megawatts 21 percent higher than last weeks average. The increase in electricity use will likely lead to higher power bills for utility customers in the coming weeks, KUA ocials said. KUA oers these energysaving tips that require little or no expense and can help to reduce energy costs: Set the thermostat on the highest comfortable setting (KUA recommends 78-80 degrees). Raising the temperature just two degrees can reduce cooling costs by as much as ve percent. Use oscillating and ceiling fans instead of lowering the thermostat setting but remember to turn them o when youre not in the room. Close blinds, shades or drapes during the hottest part of the day to block the suns heat. Remember that window air conditioning units generally are not designed to cool more than one room. Clean or replace window unit or central air conditioning system lters monthly. Dirty lters cause air conditioners to work harder and use more energy.Heat wave spikes power usage by 21% Motorcyclist killed in Osceola crashAn Ocoee motorcyclist was killed in Osceola County on Saturday after he was ejected from the bike. According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Robert Whyte, 52, was driving a 2015 Honda motorcycle southbound on State Road 429 at about 7 p.m. Witnesses told troopers that Whyte was abruptly changing lanes for no apparent reason. He then traveled into the median and the motorcycle overturned, ejecting him from the bike, the report stated. Whyte, who was not wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead on scene. The crash remains under investigation. Kissimmee teen arrested in child porn sting A Kissimmee teenager was arrested aer he was allegedly caught in a Polk County Sheriffs Office sting targeting child pornography. roughout the month of May, Polk County Sheris Computer Crimes detectives served search warrants and made 11 arrests during Operation Guardians of Innocence II which focused on identifying and arresting those involved in the possession, promotion, and distribution of child pornography. A total of 660 felony charges were filed against the suspects, with more charges pending.See Police Page 5.

Poinciana Blvd. Osceolas new public works director is 1st woman to hold positionOsceola Countys new Public Works director has three decades of experience in the eld, with a background that includes solid waste, civil engineering and administration. Danielle Slaterpryce, who starts work Monday, is also the rst woman to lead the department with approximately 230 employees and a budget of $58.7 million. In order to be successful in government service, you have to have a passion for it. It is a calling, said Slaterpryce. I like working with the community and seeing things improve. Personally, it is also important to help other people to achieve their goals and be successful. Slaterpryce has operated her own rm for the last two years. Prior to that, she was the assistant city administrator for the city of West Palm Beach. She worked as a project manager for Kimley-Horn, and director of Public Works for Okaloosa and Putnam counties. In Putnam, she was also the county engineer. Do I understand solid waste contracts, storm water management, and how to build a road? Absolutely, she said. Her experience was frequently gained by successfully handling assignments no one else wanted. She is particularly proud of work on a bridge in Okaloosa County that required discussions between the state of Florida, the Department of Defense (as Eglin Air Force Base was involved) and that county. As for being the rst woman to head Public Works, she said that being the rst female director has been par for the course during her career. Its really not a gender issue. I always like being at the forefront and pushing through. Part of that is enlightening people that it isnt about your gender. I have the skillset to do the job, Slaterpryce said, noting that the number of women in the eld has increased over the years. It has been satisfying to be able to mentor upcoming engineers and professionals and to watch them become successful. Slaterpryce was impressed by downtown Kissimmee and St. Cloud, as well as the areas really beautiful parks, she said. Im looking forward to meeting sta and community members, and helping the community to successfully meet some of the infrastructure challenges it is facing. Ive dealt with those types of issues before, and while it is never easy, there is a way forward. Slaterpryce succeeds Frank Raymond, who will focus on construction of the new NeoCity oce building.School District ofces to close on Fridays during summer e Osceola School District will run on a four-day work week during the summer months.

Page 4 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, June 7, 2018 Lets open the classroom doors all of them. Open up the schools, open up America, looking for the lost souls. Woo hoo! he shouted as he fired off his guns. By the time he was done, 10 more people were dead. Eight students, two teachers. More sacred lives tossed to the God of War. e murders at Santa Fe High School, in Santa Fe, Texas, on May 18 were the fourth-deadliest mass shooting at a U.S. public school in modern history, according to Reuters, as though such stats help us grasp what happened, and why. Perhaps in a way they accomplish the opposite converting the deaths to numbers, ling them away in the national memory as the news cycle moves on. But we all know the next horror headline is waiting to be written. . . while shootings at schools are terrible, its not the schools that are the problem. e real problem is that America as a whole is dangerous, writes Mike Males at Yes! magazine. He makes the point that American schools, overall, are far safer than most of the rest of American society, where thousands of gun homicides occur annually. The problem faced by American schools, in other words, is that theyre located here, in the land of the free and the home of the armed, where 300 million rearms are at the ready; and thus they are vulnerable to occasional invasions by armed America. The problem here is unimaginably large. e more gun homicides the country endures, the more people feel the need to be armed in order to protect themselves, which simply paradoxically feeds the problem. e more guns out there, the more dangerous the world is. Its the sheer presence of rearms that creates the likelihood that they will be used, just as national preparation for war makes the next war virtually inevitable. As Males points out, arming 20 percent of the teachers would mean 800,000 more armed adults in schools, intensifying the danger of going to school beyond what anyone dare imagine. But the other side of the American debate about guns and violence seems achingly ineffectual. Tougher gun laws background checks with teeth may be necessary, but take control over such a miniscule part of the problem. Legal and bureaucratic fixes will not, by themselves, rescue, let alone transform, a violent culture. e 17-year-old Santa Fe High School shooters weapons were legal, for Gods sake. Dimitrios Pagourtzis murdered classmates and teachers with his fathers legally owned shotgun and revolver. Does that lessen the seriousness of what he did? e issue here goes well beyond the law. Is this not a matter of what constitutes empowerment? e addictive popularity of guns is not due to their pragmatic usefulness. Its due to the sense of power they bestow: being fully human, fully alive. No matter, as Brad J. Bushman pointed out some years ago in Psychology Today, that the costs of gun ownership far outweigh the benets. e gun you own is, he writes, much more likely to be used to kill you (suicide) or someone you love (accident, homicide in a heated argument) than a stranger in self-defense. e costs of living in a society of gun owners also means a substantially higher rate of homicides, suicides, and accidents. And, oh yeah, mass murders. And the boy in the trench coat opens re in art class. Hes described (like all those who preceded him) as a quiet loner. His father said he was bullied and disrespected at school. And USA Today tells us: As the horror unfolded, Pagourtzis roamed from classroom to classroom, taunting students and blasting away as they made ill-fated eorts to elude or hide from his barrage of gunre. Please, let this be the moment at which we pause, as a lost kid deeply, spiritually lost uses guns and bullets to nd a half an hour of respect, then surrenders. Whats missing in this scenario is an alternative. Empowerment is about more than being able to protect yourself. Its about fully being yourself, connected to your community: valued by it, indispensable to it. is is not a priority or focus of our educational system, which mostly separates its students from one another and measures their worth in separation. is means there will always be losers. And sometimes as the headlines tell us every couple of months the losers push back. e most encouraging alternative Ive seen to this situation is the movement, taking hold in some of our countrys most troubled schools, called Restorative Justice, which begins by giving every student his or her voice. Several years ago I wrote a column about City Springs School, a K-8 school in Baltimore, which has transformed itself by moving beyond zero tolerance and punishment-based discipline, replacing this failed educational status quo with peace circles, in which all participants adults and children sit together in vibrant equality. I spent half a day at City Springs recently, as part of my own determination to see how people are creating peace on our planet, I wrote. I sat in proactive circles with first-graders and eighthgraders, listening and participating as the kids checked in and talked about how they were doing that day. One teacher said the proactive circle, held not in response to a problem but simply to get the day started, was like taking a daily vitamin. Kids and adults connect with each other and a context of respect and mutual cooperation is established anew. Im talking here not about quick xes but long-term transformation the emergence of schools that dont separate education from empowerment. What happens to kids who grow up feeling valued?

Detectives received a tip that child pornography les were being downloaded to a Dropbox account. The detectives responded to the home and talked with his parents, and then responded to Haines City High School to talk to the suspect. He admitted to viewing images depicting children as young as infants, according to a Polk Sheris Oce press release. During an initial preview of his cell phone, detectives located files depicting child pornography with victims as young as 12-24 months old. They seized the equipment for further analysis. He was taken into custody without incident and charged with 12 counts possession of child pornography. As you know, this is just the beginning once we serve search warrants and seize the devices that these suspects are using to download and distribute pornography, we will do a complete forensic analysis, and in all likelihood we will be adding on more charges related to the felony possession and distribution of images and videos of children being sexually battered, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said. Most of the images we saw during this investigation depicted children being sexually battered, that we have seen before which means we havent yet identied any local child victims, but as always, that is also a part of our investigation. AGRICULTUREContinued from Page 1 and was distributed by U.S. Department of Agriculture through its established network of local offices around the U.S. The USDA office in Kissimmee is co-located with county and state agricultural agencies at Osceola Heritage Park. After the storm, FEMA oered farm loans, livestock assistance funds, emergency conservation programs, and tree replacement services for agricultural producers. Some $2.5 billion in losses including $761 million to the citrus industry were incurred by the agriculture industry, Floridas largest after tourism, supplying buyers all over the country. Still, Floridas citrus industry has been on the decline for years because of citrus greening, one of the most serious citrus plant diseases in the world, according to the USDA. Once a tree is infected, there is no cure and most aected trees die within a few years. Local and state ocials continue pushing for even more help from the federal government in Washington D.C. for the states beleaguered agriculture industry. Florida will get a federal block grant worth $340 million to go exclusively to the citrus industry. e issue is now a driving political force for candidates running for Florida Agriculture Commissioner. e current commissioner, Adam Putnam, is running for governor. Agriculture commissioner is one of three Cabinet jobs that will be on the November ballot, along with attorney general and state chief financial officer. Candidates in the 2018 race for the agriculture department are offering a variety of approaches to make Floridas food chain more resilient before future natural disasters. Floridas Legislature also has created tax breaks on fuel used to transport agricultural products, on agricultural materials purchased for repairs and for citrus packing houses that had their businesses interrupted by the storm or citrus disease. Some races for the Florida House and Senate also highlight the issue of emergency services for the agriculture industry. Floridas hit from Irma was just one in a series of natural disasters across the nation in 2017 that showcased the precarious nature of growing and distributing food. FEEDINGContinued from Page 1 by Second Harvest and distributed by camp sta. e children come from all walks of life, said David Noel, the camps recreational coordinator. But the meals Second Harvest donates allow the camp to keep costs lower while still oering healthy lunches and snacks to kids on a regular basis. It helps out tremendously, he said. They really focus on nutrition, on making sure the kids are eating right. I think its awesome they care about the kids health, and not just feeding them anything. But do the lunches pass the campers seal of approval? ey always devour it, Noel said, laughing. Which is great. Three years ago, BreakSpot expanded its outreach even more. It added a fleet of seven donated trailers equipped with walkin coolers, hot meal storage centers and food truck-style side service windows. The trailers travel to underserved and far-reaching areas where pockets of poverty have formed, Brumbaugh explained. It allows us to reach the far corners of our sevencounty area, she said. Kids who may not be able to get to our service centers because theyre home watching younger siblings or things of that nature. is allows us to come to them. The Summer Breakspot program is free and any child under 18 years old will be served at mobile trailer locations, no questions asked. No registration is required.

Page 6 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Thursday, June 7, 2018 Introducing: Mary Essie Petrie CaldwellMary Essie Petrie Caldwell was featured at the rst Dine with the Departed event hosted by the Osceola County Historical Society in 2010. Of distinguished Hugenot ancestry, Essie, as she was fondly known, was born June 3, 1838 in Cheraw, South Carolina to Reverend George H.W. Petrie and his wife Mary Jane. Rev. Petrie was an eminent clergyman of the Southern Presbyterian Church and Essies grandfather was an officer in the American Revolution. The family moved to Montgomery, Alabama when Essie was nineteen. As a close personal friend, she had the honor of attending the inauguration of Jefferson Davis as President of the Confederate States of America in 1861. Shortly after the Civil War, she opened a school, which became one of the leading schools of Montgomery. Pupils came from surrounding towns and villages in order to study under her and have the advantage furnished by her school. Following her marriage to James Caldwell in Montgomery, they continued to live there until 1897 when Jamess health prompted them to move to Kissimmee with their daughter Jean. James passed away on January 24, 1902. In 1910, when the Will Bryan Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy was formed in Kissimmee, Essie and Jean were charter members and remained with the organization until it disbanded in 1921. Soon another chapter was formed and honored Essie by naming it the Essie Petrie Chapter. Essie authored numerous poems, one which was sung at every UDC meeting. Essie lived a long and full life, passing away on September 17, 1928 at the age of 90. She and James rest in Rose Hill Cemetery, location of Dine with the Departed event.Source: assorted issues of Kissimmee Valley Gazette; 1927-1928 Yearbook for Essie Petrie Caldwell Chapter of United Daughters of the Confederacy (OCHS Collection) OSCEOLA COUNTY HISTORYIn December 1865, the eldest of six children, Mary Crawford Bryan was born to Jasper Newton Bryan St. and Amanda Fitzpatrick in Marshallville, Macon County, Georgia. She decided to stay and teach school in Kissimmee while visiting two of her brothers, Nathan Colbert Bert and Conrad in about 1890. Bert and his wife, the former Annie Oliver welcomed Mary into their home and she lived with them for many years. Mary taught 3rd grade from 1892 to 1932, sometimes having as many as thirty to forty students in a classroom. Even as her former students moved on with their lives, she corresponded with many, writing letters of encouragement and providing scholarship funds to those in need. Mary shared her love of music by oering musical programs and lessons to students. Also a nature lover, she cultivated many varieties of coleus and caladium and became an avid bird watcher. For the rst seven months Mary taught, August 1892 to February 1893, she received a salary of $25 a month. The next year, her pay increased to $30 but there was only a ve month term. A $5 increase in pay came the third year, again for a ve month term. At the end of that third year of teaching, she was oered the position of assistant to the primary teacher, who at that time was teaching 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades. She received no increase in pay but was later given the 2nd and 3rd grades entirely, with a raise to $40. Mary died on June 14, 1950 and on October 23 1951, the new elementary school, Mary C. Bryan Elementary School was dedicated in her honor. Over the years, additions and modications were made to the original structure when it became Beaumont Middle School.Photo Courtesy: Osceola County Historical Society Photo Collection Sources: Centennial Book and newspaper articlesank you to our friends at the Osceola County Historical Society for providing the editorial content and photos to bring this section to you.Introducing: Mary Crawford Bryan Essie Petrie Caldwell Mary Crawford Bryan 041918.TNG We Make Hardware Easy407-892-7700 Shop Online at: www.Handyman.doitBest.com Mon-Fri, 7:30-6:00 Drop off a non perishable food item for: A PLACE FOR GRACE MINISTRIESand receive a FREE KEY valued up to $1.99092916.TNG 1410 TENTH ST., ST.

Thursday, June 7, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 7 By Ken Jackson Sports Editor Brett Cumberland, Cristian Pache and Chad Sobotka will represent the Florida Fire Frogs for the North squad in the Florida State League All-Star Game on June 16 at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. The North division will be managed by Dunedin Blue Jays Manager Casey Candaele. Where Cumberland was Floridas hottest hitter at the start of the year, Pache has carried that mantle of late. Through Tuesday, Cumberland, who catches and serves as the designated hitter, led the league with 33 walks in just 175 plate appearances, and his .376 on-base percentage leads all starters. He had a 13-game on-base streak through Monday. Behind the dish hes thrown out 14 out of 30 potential base stealers in 2018, a mark of 47 percent, which ranks tied for second in the league. Pache, a 19-year-old native of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and the Fire Frogs starting center elder and leado hitter, leads the team in at bats, runs (27), hits (60), doubles (11), triples (3) and RBI (24) while hitting .293 through Tuesday and .349 over his prior 10 games. Sobotka was promoted to Double-A Mississippi on May 15 but ended his tenure as a Fire Frog on a 7 2/3 scoreless innings streak. The right-hander went 2-0 with a 2.20 ERA in his 13 appearances at the High-A level, compiling 28 strikeouts in 20 1/3 innings, and holding opponents to a .121 batting average out of the bullpen. First pitch of the 2018 All-Star game is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., and there will be a post-game reworks display. ere will also be a home run derby on June 15 beginning at 6:30 p.m. Prior to the All-Star Game, the team will have a seven-game home stand beginning Friday at 6:31 p.m. against the Jupiter Hammerheads and Bradenton Marauders. Friday is Bark in the Park Night, and fans can bring their ne furry friends to the game; Just 4 Dogs will be giving out free dog bowls to the rst 50 dogs and admission for dogs is free with a paid adult. Saturday will be a busy night as threetime Pro Bowl NFL running back and Orlando native Chris Johnson will hold a Meet n Greet with fans starting at5 p.m. and will throw out the ceremonial rst pitch prior to the game against the Hammerheads. e Fire Frogs will also celebrate mascot Strikers birthday on Saturday, when kids 12 and under receive free admission aer joining the Tadpole Club, and the rst 300 kids will receive free mini golf vouchers to Pirates Island.

By Ken Jackson Sports Editor It seems odd that one of the oldest youth gymnastics studios in the area would be a newcomer to elite state-level competitions. But, this spring was the rst time Metro Osceola Gymnastics in St. Cloud had enough competitors (three) at the same level at the same time in order to compete as a team. It finally came together last month when Callie Diehl, 10, Emily Gierscher, 12, and Lieghanna Vaughan, 13, combined to lead Metro Osceola to a thirdplace finish among Silver Elite teams at the Amateur Athletic Union State Championships at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach. It was Metro Osceolas rst team award in its over 20-year existence. It was a thrilling event for Carol Emery, who runs the 17th Street studio with her son Taylor, a longtime competitor himself who coaches the girls. is was the rst year we had three kids in the same division, so weve been waiting for this to come together, Carol said. People look at this little gym and wonder what were doing here, but weve got as many as 180 kids training here. Whats more impressive is that, going into the fall, Taylor Emery said the girls had tentatively decided to make this year their nal year of competition. ese girls were holding their heads down this time last year, he said. Now theyre heads up, shoulders back, and proved to themselves that theyre small but theyre strong and now were trying to do it again next year. Vaughan nished in rst place among her age group, Diehl was third and Gierscher was sixth. e girls combined balance beam scores were second among the 10 teams who made the nals and third in the vault and oor exercise. When coach brought the idea to us we were excited, Vaughn said. We think taking third place was a big accomplishment. Taylor Emery echoed that, since as a three-gymnast team every one of their scores would count toward the team score, good or bad. Our small team finishing third all-around was impressive considering we had no buer. It was almost magical from where we were at the start of the season, he said. I prepared when we signed up as a team, he said.

All-Star Game is June 16 in Tampa; Orlando native, former NFL RB Chris Johnson visits SUBMITTED PHOTOFrom left, Leighanna Vaughan, Callie Diehl and Emily Gierscher combined to earn third place for Metro Osceola Gymnastics at last months AAU State Championships in Daytona Beach in the Silver Elite division. It was the first time in over two decades that the St. Cloud studio had three athletes in the same division at the same time to compete in team competition. Welcome to the Summer of Malcontent! Or, what Orlando Magic fans have come to know, the last six years. Your hometown NBA team term used loosely based on its performance since Dwight Howard left in a big messy huff named its 13th head coach last week. Steve Clifford will be the fourth one in ve seasons when preseason camp opens this fall, and the response among the jilted fan base was a lot like an o-key trumpet note. at trumpet has been playing Taps for years. When a team gets rid of one coach and replaces him with a new style of coach, the hope is that the new voice spurs some new success. But Steve Cliord wont be taking the shots or playing the defense for the team in games. e Magic players who do are awful. And it cant improve any time soon because of some of the contracts to which theyre signed. Clifford, along with the brain trust of Je Weltman and John Hammond, talk about revamping the roster, but how can they when theyre paying Bismack Biyombo $17 million per season to play about 19 minutes per game and expect nothing out of him on oense (they paid Howard $18 million under his last Orlando contract and he was the NBAs best defensive player at the time)? Like Biymabo, Evan Fournier is also making $17 million to miss shots and play little defense for the next two seasons, more than Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, who youve seen playing for another title this week. Both have contracts the team cannot trade, move or liquidate. The Magic cant even pair Biyombo with Nic Vucevic, who is serviceable at both ends of the oor, during a game. Vucevics salary cap number is $12.2 million so, sadly, hes the one with trade value when it comes time to gut this ailing roster. And good luck extending Jonathan Isaac, who looked like he can play in a small sample size of 27 games due to injuries last year, and Aaron Gordon, who some think could be a top-10 player in the league, when their rookie contracts end. The Magic wont reach the NBA playoffs under Clifford, or whoever took this job at this time, unless he commits to the long haul and the brain trust commits to him. At least he has a better chance of surviving two losing seasons better than Frank Vogel did, because Cliord was the choice of those in charge and Vogel was thrust upon them by former General Manager Rob Hennigan, who deserves a place in a Turkish prison or role as vice president of the Magic Fan Club, same dierence for thrusting the Biyombo and Fournier contracts upon those le to clean them up and work around. e Magic didnt, couldnt and wouldnt hire a splashy name that NBA deep thinkers would call the next Brad Stevens because that guy wouldnt take this job right now. Based on the roster and contract situations, you could mix the DNA of Phil Jackson, Gregg Popovich with the ashes of Red Auerbach and John Wooden, put it in a mock turtleneck and sports coat and still not have a coach that could help the Magic win within the next two years.

SUBMITTED PHOTOOsceola lineman Cameron Dwyer, with Kowboys Coach Doug Nichols, has signed to play at Southeastern University, where he plans to major in theology.Kowboy lineman Dwyer signs to block, study theology at Southeastern By Ken Jackson Sports Editor e signing story for Osceola oensive lineman Cameron Dwyer is a real best of both worlds story. Dwyer signed last month with Southeastern University, an NAIA program in Lakeland. So hell get to go to college close to home. And, at Southeastern, hell get to study something close to his heart, and an uncommon major for this generation theology. With a line on minoring in education and becoming a lead pastor, Dwyer said in the future he hopes to preach, teach and coach. He said his school choice came down to Ithaca (N.Y.) and Southeastern, and the Lakeland school gave him the chance to pursue what he loves. I originally thought I wanted to get into marine science, but I asked myself if Id be really passionate about it, he said. en I prayed hard about what Im really passionate about, and its spreading the Word. So I started looking for Christian colleges and a Valencia advisor told me about it. It doesnt hurt that its right down the road. Dwyer, (5-11, 260) was one of the key components and only senior on the Kowboys oensive line that kept Coach Doug Nichols exbone running attack humming, to the tune of nearly 3,000 rushing yards again this season as part of one of the states best rushing attacks. In Lakeland, itll be just like old times for Dwyer. e Fire were one of the nations most prolic NAIA oenses in 2017, ranked No. 1 in scoring oense per game (55.1 points), third in rushing oense (330 yards per game) and total oense (557.4). e team had two 1,000-yard rushers and a 1,000-yard receiver. Southeastern was 8-2 on the year, rolled through the Sun Conference (5-0) and earned a spot in the NAIA national playos. Nichols said Dwyer is the ultimate feel good story. Cameron was a true program kid. He played on the freshman team, then the JV as a sophomore and was a backup as a junior, he said. Aer a solid senior year as a starter hes going on to play in college. Hes going to do well. Hes going to be playing alongside and against men so hes going to have to get bigger and pick up the speed of the game. Steve Cliord, or Cliord the Big Red Dog. It just doesnt matter. And if it takes any longer than a couple of years to change the direction, we could be nearing a Decade of Malcontent ... ... I said Warriors in 6 when it started. ey wont hit shots one night, and LeBron should will Cleveland to a win on another night ... Last month the Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, which had prohibited sports gambling in every state besides Nevada. Now states get to choose for themselves if they are going to allow legalized sports betting. And theres a list of states lining up to give gamblers the thumbsup when rst allowed to do so in the next 45 days or so. Do not expect Florida, e Tourism State, to be one of them. ats probably a wise choice and thats not an editorial comment on my ability to pick football games, although youre way to familiar with that if you read this space last winter. Im also not saying that its because the state is trying to avoid creating a problem in peoples lives Im not an advocate of telling other adults what they shouldnt be doing if its legal, although Disney has spent millions ghting legalized gambling. Between all the major football programs and professional sports teams in the state, watching and cheering them on should be enough to do on game day without making the contents of ones wallet hinge on the outcome of their games. So Florida, and its long list of tourism advocates (some people spell that lobbyists) likely wont be adding sports betting to the list of fun stu to do, but those in the know say Mississippi will. Do I need to run down a list of things Florida has going for it that Mississippi doesnt? By the way, a drive to Mississippi, with a gas and lunch stop, is nine hours. All Im saying is Im just sayin. told them if were all our A game, well do well. And it happened. ey stood up and shined and competed their best meet. I believed they surpassed their expectations walking into a oor with thousands of competitors. The girls were solid physically and mentally. I told them to focus more on doing your best than the scores at the meet the eort over the results. Vaughn, helped by winning the beam with a 9.550 score, was in rst place headed into her nal event, the vault, and she scored the exact number she needed, a 9.500, to win her division with a four-rotation score of 37.475 that included the oor exercise and uneven bars. Her best combined score in elite competition was 31.6. I didnt know what I needed to win it, and I probably preferred it that way, she said. I just wanted to do it, land it and get through it. Vaughan said the oor exercise is her favorite element because she used to be a dancer until she made gymnastics her top activity at age 6. I still really like to dance, she said. Gierscher took up gymnastics at age 5 because it seemed fun, and her combined score of 36.875 was much higher than a 31.9 she scored last year. She was second in the beam (9.500) at the Daytona Beach competition. Shes already looking forward to the next Silver Elite meet that Metro can compete in, and is working hard on her vaulting technique to help the team score higher. Were hoping we get to compete as a team again at state next year, Gierscher said. anks to winning the vault with a 9.575 in her division, Diehl scored a 37.750, also beating her best previous combined score of 33.450. Taylor said the summer schedule began this week for a season that he and the girls werent sure would come this time last year. ese are really good girls, Carol said.

Thursday, June 7, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 11 060718.TNG By Jennifer DiDomenico A&E Editor Channel in your inner superhero this summer at Madame Tussauds Orlando. Justice League: A Call for Heroes is waiting for you. e brand new, action-packed attraction takes guests on an interactive journey through some of the biggest blockbuster films known. You can experience epic action and adventure alongside Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman. We worked really closely with Warner Brothers and DC, said James Paulding, general manager for Madame Tussauds Orlando and SEA LIFE Orlando at the newly rebranded ICON Orlando 360. Its been a great partnership. Were all equally excited about what were doing. To bring the Justice League to life in this way is very cool for us, and really for [Warner Brothers and DC] as well, he continued. On a private tour, Paulding guided the News-Gazette through the exhibit to experience the one-of-a-kind attraction rsthand. We journeyed through about half of the wax museums other exhibits before entering a private area, where our interactive session began with a special message from the Justice League superheroes themselves. e superheroes declared their need for our help, as LexCorps experimental technology has gone haywire and is threatening the world. You, too, can help them save innocent civilians while guring out a way to stop Lex Luthors out-ofcontrol experiment before its too late. Message boards throughout the exhibit will help you know what to look for, and markings on the ground will even show you where to stand to get the full experience. Note: e message boards are available in three languages. To fight the battle, it will first take the strength of Wonder Womans Power Gauntlets to block the signal of the LexCorp transmission. You and your family will harness all of your combined energies and strike Wonder Womans signature power pose to create a force strong enough to cause a great explosion with wind and sound eects (and great photo opportunities). Next, race to Supermans side to help the Man of Steel himself li a helicopter that is hurtling toward the ground. As you assist him by pushing upward, Superman will thrust the helicopter back into the sky, with never-before-used technology at Madame Tussauds Orlando. End the battle in Gotham City. Step onto the rooftops of the Gotham City Police Department and use the legendary Bat-Signal to call Batman into action for the nal quest. Smoke and wind will reveal him, as he lands on the rooop ready to save the world. Paulding said with Justice League: A Call for Heroes, the goal was to simply do something dierent while also trying to completely blow it out of the ballpark. Needless to say, that is the case. Each scene is incredibly accurate with unbelievable attention to detail, from the characters lifelike appearances and elaborate costumes to the vivid backdrops themselves. Everything very detailed, and fans will look for specic details in each scene, said Paulding. Its a whole step forward for us. But lets face it, theres extreme detail in everything Madame Tussauds Orlando does. Each lifesize wax figure is made with such time and care, that every face is hand painted and every single hair on each gures head is inserted individually. e overall making of the gures takes extensive time on both ends, between the creators and the celebrities. Before molding each gure, a binder is made of the celebrity selected to be designed, filled with different angled photos, notes and more. at binder is used throughout the full process to narrow down every detail of the celebritys look. The tradition of Madame Tussauds began with Madame Tussaud herself. Since ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT AROUND OSCEOLA COUNTY & CENTRAL FLORIDA ONLINEVisit www.aroundosceola.com for the latest news.

You can submit your suggestions to jdidomenico@ osceolanewsgazette.com. My family celebrated Memorial Day Weekend with a staycation at Disneys Yacht and Beach Club. eres always so much to do at a Disney Resort, and, in reality, you dont even have to leave the grounds to fully enjoy your stay on property. Because (tropical disturbance) Alberto decided to join us on our trip, we spent most of our time indoors, and really put the resort amenities to the test. One of our favorite activities was painting pottery in the solarium the Yacht and Beach Clubs recreation space. What we didnt know: You dont need to be a Disney Resort guest to participate. So the good news is that we can go back anytime, and so can you. Pottery painting is on select days, at select times. So plan to check the schedule with your chosen resorts front desk before stopping by. The pottery pieces range in price, but are for the most part pretty reasonable. I chose to paint a coee mug, costing me only $10 for the mug, paints and use of paintbrushes. This price also included firing the mug in the kiln before pick up. Firing usually takes a few days, but you will be notied via text or call when your piece is ready. is activity makes for a great outing for the whole family. Parents are of course asked to supervise their children at all times, as the recreation sta is just there to assist. Depending on the resort, the recreation sta plays a Disney movie during the painting session. Personal tip: stop by the resorts quick-service dining to end your day-long staycation with a Mickey Mouse ice cream bar.

BeaverTails is now open and serving all of its Canadian sweets and treats at Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets. You may have seen these Canadian favorites before, as they were previously showcased at Disneys Epcot theme park. In the past we were fortunate enough to be one of the products featured in Epcot, with BeaverTails being oered at the Canadian Pavilion. at was on a rotational basis and eventually room was made for a dierent product to represent Canada, said BeaverTails CEO and owner Pino Di Ioia. We, of course, were delighted with the Disney experience at the time and would love to be able to return one day. After having the pleasure of being in Epcot, we are thrilled to be back in Orlando, Di Ioia continued. The Canadian brand originated in 1978 as a kiosk at the Killaloe Fair in Ottawa, Ontario, by Pam and Grant Hooker. The rst stores opened in the late 1970s in Canada. As the brand quickly took o, more stores in Canada and abroad began to open. In 2002, the team of Pino Di Ioia and his family took over management of BeaverTails, moving the head office to Montreal. By 2008, new boutique locations opened with an expanded menu, including items like ice cream and poutines. The American market then began to open. Today, BeaverTails pastries are available at 140 locations 124 in Canada, 10 in the United States and distribution licenses in six international countries. The food trucklike location is located just outside of the very popular Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets, oering classic BeaverTails pastry flavours, signature hot and cold beverages and even traditional Canadian poutine. e classic treats include whole wheat, handstretched pastries with toppings ranging from the Classic Cinnamon & Sugar to the Triple Trip, with chocolate hazelnut spread and Reeses Pieces and peanut butter, and more.

Thursday, June 7, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 13 060718.TNG By Jennifer DiDomenico A&E Editor eres a lot to celebrate at Duck Donuts in Kissimmee. On Friday, the local donut shop celebrated National Donut Day by showing some customer appreciation with free donuts. Were excited to have everyone out, said Duck Donuts Kissimmee owner Mark Griffin, during the event. We wanted to show some customer love back. Griffin, a Kissimmee local in the real estate business, said owning a donut shop was never part of the plan. He and his family vacationed to the outer banks of North Carolina every summer, always making a stop at the original Duck Donuts location in Duck, North Carolina. (Hence the name, Duck Donuts.) We are such big fans of Duck Donuts, he said. We just liked the core concept, the amazing donuts, and the friendly people. It was a magical thing to do every year while we were on vacation. Grin said he even has photos of his children growing up year aer year, Duck Donuts in hand. For us, it was about bringing it back to our hometown, he said. His Kissimmee store was the rst Duck Donuts to open in the state of Florida. It is now one of three Florida locations, with the others in Estero and Boca Raton. Duck Donuts is known for its fresh, made-to-order donuts. e franchise chain is unlike traditional donut shops, in that, the donuts arent dropped into the fryer until they are ordered. e donuts then sit on a cooling tray for less than one minute before being topped. Customers are able to watch their donuts get all dressed up right in front of them, with toppings like sprinkles, sugars, drizzles and more. Its always hard to pick a favorite, Griffin said, candidly. But Im a big fan of a couple of them. e lemon and key lime, and then of course the orange, a native for Florida. He said some of the customer favorites are the cinnamon sugar and maple bacon. The shop also offers breakfast-style sandwiches on a donut bun with bacon, sausage, egg and cheese, and donut ice cream sundaes (classic, salted caramel and smores). Plus a variety of coffee, milk, juices and so drinks. Up next, Duck Donuts in Kissimmee will welcome everyone back for a big party to celebrate its oneyear anniversary this July.

Thursday, June 7, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 15 Stay safe when caught outdoors CONTACT BRIAN MCBRIDE EDITOR EMAIL BMCBRIDE@OSCEOLANEWSGAZETTE.COM When storms roll in, they might bring along high winds, thunder and lightning and drops in temperature. Many people ride out storms indoors, but some may nd themselves suddenly caught in a storm and not know what to do. For the unprepared, the potential for injury is signicant. So its important to routinely brush up on surviving a storm when caught in one outdoors. Lightning can pose a signicant threat. Real Clear Science says the average bolt of lightning, striking from cloud to ground, carries roughly one billion joules of energy, 300 million volts and 30,000 amps. Lightning also generates temperatures hotter than the surface of the sun. According to data collected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, in North America, Florida, Texas and Colorado had the highest number of lightningrelated fatalities between 2005 and 2014. Environment Canada says that roughly 10 people die in Canada each year because of lightning. Finding shelter when lightning strikes is ideal but not always possible. If you cannot get indoors, the next best thing is to stay low to the ground. Lightning tends to strike the tallest items around. erefore, staying put in a ditch or depression in the ground can protect you against a possible lightning strike. NOAA says to stay away from tall, isolated trees, which can become lightning rods. e same can be said for seeking shelter under a tent or pavillion, as these structures are oen metal and can conduct the lightning. Cars can be a somewhat safe spot if there is nothing else available. e metal shell of the car will disperse the lightning to the ground, oers AccuWeather. The National Weather Service says groups caught outside during lightning storms should spread out to avoid the current traveling between group members. Also, remember that, while water will not attract lightning, it can conduct and spread the charge, so avoid bodies of water and wet areas. High winds also pose a safety risk. ese winds may accompany thunderstorms, tornados or hurricanes. For those who are caught outside in high winds, e Weather Channel advises taking cover next to a building or under a secure shelter. Wind can easily bring down trees, branches, and power lines. It also may blow around outdoor furniture and other heavy items. FEMA says to stay away from balconies or elevated areas to avoid falling objects. Avoid roadways and train tracks when on foot, as gusts can blow people into the path of oncoming vehicles. Electrocution from downed power lines is a potential side eect of high winds. Avoid anything that might be touching power lines. Being indoors during severe weather is ideal but not always possible when a storm arrives unexpectedly. Knowing how to behave in these emergency situations can prevent injury and even death. Floods can be highly destructive natural disasters. e U.S. Geological Surveys Water Science School says that around 71 percent of the Earths surface is covered by water. While oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all the planets water, rivers, lakes, ice caps, and glaciers also are large water sources. National Geographic points out that flooding has caused more death and destruction than any other kind of natural disaster in the United States. Flooding may result from overowing streams or rivers; when coastal storms cause the sea to surge inland; if a dam or levee has ruptured; if ice melts rapidly in the mountains; or if excessive rain cannot be absorbed by the ground fast enough. Flooding can even occur without warning, and such instances are referred to as ash ooding. Staying safe during floods involves understanding floods. The following information, courtesy of the Emergency Management Institute, FEMA, Ready.gov, and National Geographic, can help men and women better understand oods and how to stay safe in ooding situations. No region is safe from flooding. Floods can occur anywhere, but are rare in areas where water is scarce. Floods may develop very slowly or in just a matter of seconds aer an extensive rainfall. Areal floods can occur where saturated grounds are present. Although the term hundred-year ood describes an extremely large and very rare event, these types of oods have recently been occurring worldwide with increased regularity. In the United States, oods cause about $6 billion worth of damage and kill, on average, 140 people every year. Coastal ooding alone attributes to $3 trillion in damage worldwide. Chinas Yellow River valley has been home to some of the worst oods in history. Flood waters can quickly knock people o their feet and carry them away. Its important to sanitize oneself aer coming in contact with ood water, which could be contaminated with various natural and manmade substances. It may be necessary to move to higher ground when ooding situations occur. Its important to heed safety precautions and evacuation messages. Rapidly moving water has the potential to carry a house, car, trees, or other structures away. Drivers should not try to navigate through ood waters. Many deaths that occur during oods happen when drivers try to move through ood waters. Its imperative to keep an emergency kit, nonperishable food, ashlights, and batteries on hand to combat potential disasters like oods. Flood damage is not necessarily covered by homeowners insurance. ose who live in high-risk ood zones would be wise to purchase ood insurance to protect themselves. Floods can be formidable foes. Armed with information, people can be safer when the waters rise. Summer approaches with the promise of warm temperatures. Weather is one reason why summer is such a popular season to tie the knot. But just because sunny skies and rising mercury are par for the course, that does not mean Mother Nature wont invite herself to the festivities and attempt to upstage happy couples in the process. Some feel its good luck for couples to get rain on their wedding days, but many couples would trade in a little of that luck for clear skies. However, weather can be fickle, and couples who build contingency plans into their wedding festivities are much more likely to overcome inclement weather than couples without such plans. Couples dont want their wedding guests or bridal party members passing out due to heat exhaustion. Make sure to oer shade if the ceremony or reception is outside. Stock the area with cold bottles of water or a chilled lemonade stand. Have fans and umbrellas available just in case guests need a way to protect themselves from the sun. Over the course of hot and humid days, storm clouds can develop and roll in. Afternoon thunderstorms are quite common on summer days. Accommodate for sudden downpours by hosting early luncheon receptions or ensure there is a plan B that includes a covered area. Couples can stash spare shoes or even rain slickers in a car to keep their wedding attire protected against rain as they dash between venues or take photos. Vivid skies with lightning or overcast days can make for unique and striking wedding photography. Couples neednt look at the downside of rain, but rather they should see the opportunities for one-of-akind memories. Storms may knock out power. Some reception halls or banquet facilities may have their own backup power, but be sure to address how power outages are handled. If need be, bring in a portable generator to keep the reception room cooled by fans. Coastal outdoor weddings present beautiful backdrops for weddings. But being near the shore may mean accepting windy conditions. Tie down tents and use weights to keep wedding programs or other papers from catching a current. e bride and her wedding party should opt for free-owing tresses so they neednt worry about intricate updos coming undone. Its impossible to predict wedding day weather, but staying calm, going with the ow and laughing at things they cant control can help couples make memories that last a lifetime. Flooding fast facts Driving in the rain can be more hazardous than driving in the snow, particularly because drivers fail to realize the dangers wet roads can impose. Aer averaging 10 years of statistics, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that 46 percent of weather-related crashes happened during rainfall, but just 17 percent occurred while it was snowing or sleeting. Drivers oen think rain is no big deal, but while its not necessary to avoid driving when the raindrops begin to fall, exercising caution when the roads are wet can decrease the risk of being in an auto accident. Wet roadways cause tires to lose traction, as friction is reduced between the rubber and the asphalt. Its possible to lose up to one-third of traction in the rain. To compensate, slow down to reduce sliding and stopping distances. Turn on windshield wipers and lights when it is raining. is makes it easier to see the road and makes your vehicle more visible to other motorists. In addition to improving your reaction time, giving others more space can improve visibility by reducing the amount of mist or splashing caused by other vehicles. If possible, when it is raining, drive only during the day. Glare from wet roadways and headlights at night can further compromise poor visibility. Anticipate gusts when traveling through windy road corridors or over bridges.

Thursday, June 7, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E1 Section E June 7, 2018 Tribune Triple EWednesday, July 15, 2015 EEE-1 www.citizentribune.com Tribune Expanded Electronic EditionBY MELISSA DARABIAN Associated PressLife is busy. We dont always have the luxury of thumbing through our favorite cookbooks, marking appeal ing recipes with sticky notes for dinners sometime off in the future when we will somehow have time to saltcure a cod or dry-age a side of beef in our garage fridge. Sometimes, we just need to get dinner on the table. It doesnt have to be fancy, but it should still be tasty and nutritious. Enter the chicken leg and thigh! Often overlooked by the healthy cook due to its higher fat content, dark chicken meat is underappreciated. Yes, the dark meat has a few more grams of fat than the white meat of the breasts (a 3 1/2-ounce serving of breast meat has about 4 grams of fat, while the same amount of dark meat has just under 6 grams). And the higher cholesterol of the dark meat means the breast probably still should be in your rotation. But chicken legs and thighs are lus cious in texture and full of avor and protein (about 28 grams per serving). They also are much lower in saturated fat than most cuts of red meat, and they offer more iron per serving than chicken breasts. Perhaps most impor tant of all for the busy weeknight cook is that bone-in dark meat chicken is very forgiving in terms of cooking time. Which is to say, it is very hard to overcook dark chicken meat. So on weeknights when my hus band and I both have to work and one daughter has dance and the other three have soccer, lacrosse and more soccer, I totally appreciate the forgiveness offered by the dark meat. One of my favorite weeknight chicken leg and thigh strategies is to load them up in a large plastic bag in the morning, dump in some veggies and a quick marinade, then just toss the whole thing into the refrigerator to sit all day. After work, I dump the con tents of the bag into a baking dish and pop it into the oven while I change into something more comfortable (by which I mean sweats). Dinner, done!WEEKNIGHT LEMON CHICKEN DINNER-IN-A-BAGStart to Finish: 1 hour, plus marinat ing Servings: 4 8 bone-in chicken drumsticks or thighs, or a mix 1/4 cup lemon juice 1/4 cup olive oil 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 teaspoons dried thyme 1/4 teaspoon red pepper akes (op tional) Kosher salt and ground black pep per 1 large red or yellow onion, cut into 8 wedges 4 medium red potatoes, halved Using a paper towel in each hand to help grip the chicken pieces, remove and discard the skin by pulling it off. In a 2-gallon zip-close plastic bag, mix together the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, thyme, red pepper akes (if using), and a hefty pinch each of salt and pepper. Add the chicken, onion and potatoes, seal the bag and gently turn over several times to evenly coat the contents with the marinade. Re frigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 12 hours, turning the bag once or twice if convenient. When ready to cook, heat the oven to 375 F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Dump the con tents of the bag onto the pan, spread into an even layer, then bake uncov ered until the chicken registers 175 F at the thickest parts, about 40 minutes. If the potatoes and onions brown too quickly on one side, turn them for more even cooking.

Tribune Triple EWednesday, June 6, 2018 EEE-1 www.citizentribune.comTribune Expanded Electronic Edition Slip it on the BarbieBy AMERICA'S TEST KITCHENWell-marbled steak tips, with their beefy avor and tender texture, proved the best choice for our grilled beef kebabs. We created a robust marinade using several key elements: Beef broth and tomato paste added rich, umami tones, salt helped brine the meat and keep it moist, a bit of sugar helped with caramelization, and rosemary and lemon zest added bright aromas. (For a spicy North African variation, we used cilan tro, paprika, cumin, and cayenne.) We cut the meat into large pieces and packed it tightly onto the skewers to help keep it moist and tender while grilling and also patted it dry to help prevent steaming. We paired our beef with a trio of rm and avorful vegetables that came into their own when grilled: peppers, red onions, and zuc chini. If you can't nd sirloin steak tips, sometimes labeled "ap meat," substitute 2 pounds of blade steak (if using, cut each steak in half to remove the gristle). You will need six 12-inch metal skewers for this recipe. If you have long, thin pieces of meat, roll or fold them into approximate 2-inch cubes be fore skewering.GRILLED BEEF KEBABS WITH LEMON AND ROSEMARY MARINADEServings: 4-6 Start to nish: 1 hour and 15 minutes, plus 1 hour to marinateMarinade1 onion, chopped 1/3 cup beef broth 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons tomato paste 6 garlic cloves, chopped 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest 2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar 3/4 teaspoon pepperBeef and Vegetables1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak tips, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces 2 zucchini or yellow summer squash, halved lengthwise and sliced 1 inch thick 2 red or green bell peppers, stemmed, seeded, and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces 2 red onions, cut into 1-inch pieces, 3 layers thick For the marinade process all ingredients in blender until smooth, about 45 seconds, scraping down sides of blender jar as needed. Transfer 3/4 cup marinade to large bowl and set aside. For the beef and vegetables place remaining mar inade and beef in 1-gallon zipper-lock bag and toss to coat. Press out as much air as possible and seal bag. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 2 hours, ipping bag every 30 minutes. Add zucchini, bell peppers, and onions to bowl with reserved marinade and toss to coat. Cover and let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Remove beef from bag and pat dry with paper towels. Thread beef tightly onto two 12-inch metal skewers. In alternating pattern of zucchini, bell pepper, and onion, thread vegetables onto four 12inch metal skewers. For a charcoal grill: Open bottom vent com pletely. Light large chimney starter mounded with charcoal briquettes (7 quarts). When top coals are partially covered with ash, pour evenly over cen ter of grill, leaving 2-inch gap between grill wall and charcoal. Set cooking grate in place, cover, and open lid vent completely. Heat grill until hot, about 5 minutes. For a gas grill: Turn all burners to high, cover, and heat grill until hot, about 15 minutes. Leave primary burner on high and turn other burner(s) to medium-low. Clean and oil cooking grate. Place beef skew ers on grill (directly over coals if using charcoal or over hotter side of grill if using gas). Place veg etable skewers on grill (near edge of coals but still over coals if using charcoal or on cooler side of grill if using gas). Cook (covered if using gas), turning skewers every 3 to 4 minutes, until beef is well browned and registers 120 F to 125 F (for me dium-rare), 12 to 16 minutes. Transfer beef skewers to serving platter, tent loosely with aluminum foil, and let rest while nishing vegetables. Continue to cook vegetable skewers until tender and lightly charred, about 5 minutes; transfer to platter. Using tongs, slide beef and vegetables off skewers onto platter. Serve.

By AMERICA'S TEST KITCHENGrilled potatoes are a summer classic. We wanted to put a new spin on this dish by adding rose mary and garlic. Unfortunately, we found it was difcult to add enough avor to plain grilled potatoes. Coating the potatoes with oil, garlic, and rose mary produced burnt, bitter garlic and charred rosemary. It turned out that we needed to introduce the potatoes to the gar lic-oil mixture not once, but three times. Before cooking, we pierced the potatoes, skewered them, seasoned them with salt, brushed on the garlic-rosemary oil, and pre cooked them in the microwave. Then, before grilling, we brushed them again with the in fused oil. After grilling, we tossed them with the oil yet again. We nally had it_tender grilled pota toes infused with the smoky avor of the grill and enlivened with the bold avors of garlic and rose mary.GRILLED POTATOES WITH GARLIC AND ROSEMARYServings: 4 Start to nish: 1 hour This recipe allows you to grill an entree while the hot coals burn down. Once that item is done, start grilling the potatoes. This recipe works best with small potatoes that are about 1 1/2 inches in di ameter. If using medium potatoes, 2 to 3 inches in diameter, cut them into quarters. If the potatoes are larger than 3 inches in diameter, cut each potato into eighths. Since the potatoes are rst cooked in the microwave, use wooden skewers. 1/4 cup olive oil 9 garlic cloves, minced 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rose mary Salt and pepper 2 pounds small red potatoes, unpeeled, halved, and threaded onto wooden skewers 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives Heat oil, garlic, rosemary, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in 8-inch skillet over medium heat until sizzling, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook until garlic is light blond, about 3 minutes. Pour mixture through ne-mesh strainer into small bowl; press on solids. Measure 1 tablespoon solids and 1 table spoon oil into large bowl and set aside. Discard remaining solids but reserve remaining oil. Place skewered potatoes in single layer on large plate and poke each potato several times with skewer. Brush with 1 tablespoon strained oil and season with salt. Microwave until potatoes offer slight resistance when pierced with paring knife, about 8 min utes, turning halfway through microwaving. Transfer potatoes to baking sheet coated with 1 table spoon strained oil. Brush with re maining 1 tablespoon strained oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. For a charcoal grill: Open bottom vent completely. Light large chimney starter lled with charcoal briquettes (6 quarts). When top coals are partially cov ered with ash, pour two-thirds evenly over half of grill, then pour remaining coals over other half of grill. Set cooking grate in place, cover, and open lid vent com pletely. Heat grill until hot, about 5 minutes. For a gas grill: Turn all burn ers to high, cover, and heat grill until hot, about 15 minutes. Turn all burners to medium-high. Clean and oil cooking grate. Place potatoes on grill (on hotter side if using charcoal) and cook (covered if using gas) until grill marks appear, 3 to 5 minutes, ip ping halfway through cooking. Move potatoes to cooler side of grill (if using charcoal) or turn all burners to medium-low (if using gas). Cover and continue to cook until paring knife slips in and out of potatoes easily, 5 to 8 minutes longer. Remove potatoes from skewers and transfer to bowl with reserved garlic-oil mixture. Add chives, season with salt and pepper to taste, and toss until thoroughly coated. Serve.

Brown sugar CITIZEN TRIBUNE FoodEEE-2 Wednesday, June 6, 2018 BY KATIE WORKMAN Associated PressAs summer nears and the prom ise of perfect tomatoes peeks up over the horizon, the prospect of an excellent BLT shines brightly. What is interesting to me about a BLT is the dueling dynamics of how the ingredients join together in this sandwich. One the one hand, the bread, bacon, lettuce and tomatoes all become one better-than-the-sumof-its-parts whole. On the other hand, the ingredients still manage to remain distinct. You're aware of the crisp-tender bread, the juicy lush tomatoes, the crunchy lettuce, the salty frizzled-up ba con and the mayonnaise pulling the components together. E plu ribus unum. I've ratcheted up the classic BLT a notch or two here by add ing tarragon to the mayo, not only inside the sandwich but also on the outside of the bread before it's griddled, to give extra avor and caramelizing. What makes it a California BLT is the addition of avocado and sprouts. Buy good bacon. Use good mayo. Find a great tomato. Make sure your avocado is ripe. After that, all you have to do is assemble, and you will have a fantastic sandwich.CALIFORNIA BLT'SServings: 4 sandwiches Start to nish: 25 minutes 8 slices thick-cut bacon, halved crosswise 1/2 cup mayonnaise 2 teaspoons minced tarragon 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 8 slices good bread, country white, sourdough, multigrain, your choice 1/2 teaspoon nely minced garlic 1 large tomato, sliced 1 avocado, peeled, pit removed, and sliced 4 slices romaine heart lettuce, sliced crosswise 1/3 cup sprouts, such as broc coli sprouts Preheat the oven to 400 F, and place a wire cooling rack in a rimmed baking sheet. Lay the bacon on the wire rack and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until crisp (the bacon will crisp up a bit more as it cools, so take it out when it still has some pli ability). Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, tar ragon, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. Spread a thin layer of the mayonnaise mixture on one side of each of the slices of bread. (You should use less than half the mayo mixture). Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place as many of the bread slices in the skillet as will t, mayo side down. Allow to cook until very lightly brown, about 2 minutes, then remove from the skillet and repeat with the remaining slices. Set aside. Stir the minced garlic into the rest of the mayo mixture. Divide the remaining mayo mixture over the bread slices, on the untoasted side. Layer the tomato, avocado, lettuce and a generous pinch of sprouts on top of the bread. Top with the remaining slices of bread, toasted side up. Cut in half, and serve.

Cooking on a DeadlineA BLT showcases dueling dynamicsAPThis October 2017 photo shows a California BLT in New York. By AMERICA'S TEST KITCHENMade up of two cookie-like chocolate cakes stuffed to the gills with uffy marshmallow lling, the whoopie pie is a sweet indulgence. For the cake component, we drew inspiration from devil's food cake, creaming butter with sugar, adding eggs and butter milk for tenderness, and using all-purpose our and baking soda for the right amount of structure. For the chocolate avor, we preferred the darker color and avor that Dutch-processed co coa provided. One-half cup of cocoa delivered a balanced avor, especially when boosted with a splash of vanilla extract. We tried replacing some of the granulated sugar with brown sugar, and found that it deepened avor and added moisture. In fact, we liked the results so much we wound up using all brown sugar.

I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) The Obama administration secretly sought to give Iran access albeit briey to the U.S. nancial system by sidestepping sanctions kept in place after the 2015 nuclear deal, despite repeatedly telling Congress and the pub lic it had no plans to do so. An investigation by Senate Republicans released Wednesday sheds light on the delicate balance the Obama administration sought to strike after the deal, as it worked to ensure Iran received its promised benets without playing into the hands of the deal's oppo nents. Amid a tense political climate, Iran hawks in the U.S., Israel and elsewhere argued that the United States was giving far too much to Tehran and that the windfall would be used to fund extremism and other troubling Iranian activity. The report by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations revealed that under President Barack Obama, the Treasury Depart ment issued a license in Feb ruary 2016, never previously disclosed, that would have allowed Iran to convert $5.7 billion it held at a bank in Oman from Omani rials into euros by exchanging them rst into U.S. dollars. If the Omani bank had allowed the exchange without such a li cense, it would have violated sanctions that bar Iran from transactions that touch the U.S. nancial system. The effort was unsuccess ful because American banks themselves afraid of running afoul of U.S. sanctions declined to participate. The Obama administration approached two U.S. banks to facilitate the conversion, the report said, but both re fused, citing the reputational risk of doing business with or for Iran. "The Obama administration misled the American people and Congress because they were desperate to get a deal with Iran," said Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, the subcommittee's chairman. Issuing the license was not illegal. Still, it went above and beyond what the Obama administration was required to do under the terms of the nuclear agreement. Under that deal, the U.S. and world powers gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for curbing its nu clear program. Last month, President Donald Trump declared the U.S. was pulling out of what he described as a "disastrous deal." The license issued to Bank Muscat stood in stark contrast to repeated public statements from the Obama White House, the Treasury and the State Department, all of which denied that the administration was contemplating allowing Iran access to the U.S. nancial system. Shortly after the nuclear deal was sealed in July 2015, then-Treasury Secretary Jack Lew testied that even with the sanctions relief, Iran "will continue to be denied access to the world's largest nancial and commercial market." A month later, one of Lew's top deputies, Adam Szubin, testied that despite the nuclear deal "Iran will be denied access to the world's most important market and unable to deal in the world's most important currency." Yet almost immediately after the sanctions relief took effect in January 2016, Iran began to complain that it wasn't reaping the benets it had envisioned. Iran argued that other sanctions such as those linked to human rights, terrorism and missile development were scaring off potential investors and banks who feared any business with Iran would lead to punishment. The global nancial system is heavily intertwined with U.S. banks, making it nearly impossible to conduct many international transactions without touch ing New York in one way or another. Former Obama administration ofcials declined to comment for the record. However, they said the de cision to grant the license had been made in line with the spirt of the deal, which in cluded allowing Iran to regain access to foreign reserves that had been off-limits because of the sanctions. They said public comments made by the Obama administration at the time were intended to dispel incorrect reports about nonexistent proposals that would have gone much far ther by letting Iran actually buy or sell things in dollars. The former ofcials spoke on condition of anonymity because many are still involved in national security issues. As the Obama administra tion pondered how to address Iran's complaints in 2016, reports in The Associated Press and other media outlets revealed that the U.S. was considering additional sanctions relief, including issu ing licenses that would allow Iran limited transactions in dollars. Democratic and Re publican lawmakers argued against it throughout the late winter, spring and sum mer of 2016. They warned that unless Tehran was willing to give up more, the U.S. shouldn't give Iran anything more than it already had. At the time, the Obama administration downplayed those concerns while speaking in general terms about the need for the U.S. to live up to its part of the deal. Secretary of State John Kerry and other top aides fanned out across Europe, Asia and the Middle East trying to convince banks and businesses they could do business with Iran without violating sanctions and fac ing steep nes. "Since Iran has kept its end of the deal, it is our responsi bility to uphold ours, in both letter and spirit," Lew said at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in March 2016, without offering de tails. That same week, the AP reported that the Treasury had prepared a draft of a li cense that would have given Iran much broader permission to convert its assets from foreign currencies into easier-to-spend currencies like euros, yen or rupees, by rst exchanging them for dollars at offshore nancial institu tions. The draft involved a gener al license, a blanket go-ahead that allows all transactions of a certain type, rather than a specic license like the one given to Oman's Bank Mus cat, which only covers spe cic transactions and insti tutions. The proposal would have allowed dollars to be used in currency exchanges provided that no Iranian banks, no Iranian rials and no sanctioned Iranian indi viduals or businesses were involved, and that the transaction did not begin or end in U.S. dollars. Obama administration ofcials at the time assured concerned lawmakers that a general license wouldn't be coming. But the report from the Republican members of the Senate panel showed that a draft of the license was in deed prepared, though it was never published. And when questioned by lawmakers about the pos sibility of granting Iran any kind of access to the U.S. nancial system, Obama-era ofcials never volunteered that the specic license for Bank Muscat in Oman had been issued two months ear lier. According to the report, Iran is believed to have found other ways to access its mon ey, possibly by exchanging it in smaller quantities through another currency. The situation resulted from the fact that Iran had stored billions in Omani rials, a cur rency that's notoriously hard to convert. The U.S. dollar is the world's dominant cur rency, so allowing it to be used as a conversion instrument for Iranian assets was the easiest and most efcient way to speed up Iran's access to its own funds. For example: If the Iranians want to sell oil to India, they would likely want to be paid in euros instead of ru pees, so they could more easily use the proceeds to pur chase European goods. That process commonly starts with the rupees being con verted into dollars, just for a moment, before being con verted once again into euros. U.S. sanctions block Iran from exchanging the money on its own. And Asian and European banks are wary because U.S. regulators have levied billions of dollars in nes in recent years and threatened transgressors with a cutoff from the far more lu crative American market.

The Obama administration secretly sought to give Iran brief access to the U.S. nancial system by sidestepping sanctions kept in place after the 2015 nuclear deal, despite repeatedly telling Congress and the public it had no plans to do so. Obama-era license aimed to let Iran convert money in dollarsTrustees report warns Medicare finances worseningWASHINGTON (AP) Medicare will run out of money sooner than expected, and Social Security's nan cial problems can't be ig nored either, the government said Tuesday in a sobering checkup on programs vital to the middle class. The report from program trustees says Medicare will become insolvent in 2026 three years earlier than previ ously forecast. Its giant trust fund for inpatient care won't be able to fully cover pro jected medical bills starting at that point. The report says Social Se curity will become insolvent in 2034 no change from the projection last year. The warning serves as a reminder of major issues still languishing while Washington plunges deeper into par tisan strife. Because of the deterioration in Medicare's nances, ofcials said the Trump administration will be required by law to send Congress a plan next year to address the problems, after the president's budget is sub mitted. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement that there's time to x the problems. "The programs remain secure," Mnuchin said. Medicare "is on track to meet its obligations to ben eciaries well into the next decade." "However, certain longterm issues persist," the state ment added. "Lack-luster economic growth in previous years, coupled with an aging population, has contributed to the projected shortages for both Social Security and Medicare." Social Security recipients are likely to see a cost of living increase of about 2.4 percent next year, said gov ernment number-crunchers who produced the report. That works out to about $31 a month. At the same time, the monthly Medicare "Part B" premium for outpatient care paid by most beneciaries is projected to rise by about $1.50, to $135.50. Both the cost-of-living increase and the Medicare outpatient premium are not ofcially determined until later in the year, and the ini tial projections can change. More than 62 million re tirees, disabled workers, spouses and surviving children receive Social Security benets. The average monthly payment is $1,294 for all beneciaries. Medicare provides health insurance for about 60 million people, most of whom are age 65 or older. Together the two programs have been credited with dra matically reducing poverty among older people and extending life expectancy for Americans. Financed with payroll taxes collected from workers and employers, So cial Security and Medicare account for about 40 percent of government spending, ex cluding interest on the fed eral debt. But demands on both programs are increasing as America ages. Unless lawmakers act, both programs face the prospect of being unable to cover the full cost of promised benets. With Social Security that could mean sharply reduced payments for retirees, many of whom are already on tight budgets. The report said the total annual cost of Social Security is projected to exceed total annual income in 2018 for the rst time since the Reagan era, meaning the program will have to tap into reserves. For Medicare, insolvency would mean that hospitals, nursing homes and other pro viders of medical care would be paid only part of their agreed-upon fees. Medicare is widely seen as a more difcult problem that goes beyond the growing number of baby boomers re tiring. It's also the unpredict ability of health care costs, which can be jolted by highpriced breakthrough cures, and which regularly outpace the overall rate of economic growth. The Cabinet secretaries for Treasury, Health and Human Services, and Labor usually participate in the annual release of the report, along with the Social Security commissioner, and take questions from reporters. None of those top ofcials was pres ent Tuesday; an aide cited scheduling conicts. The four top ofcials serve as the Social Security and Medicare trustees, along with two independent trustees who are supposed to represent the public. The public trustees are usually more candid, but those posts remain unlled. President Donald Trump campaigned on a promise not to cut Social Security or Medicare, but he hasn't offered a blueprint for either program. Democrats, meanwhile, want to extend the social safety net by spending more on health care and education. Advocates for the elderly said Tuesday there should be no cuts to Social Security benets. But federal decits keep rising, and the recent Republican tax-cut bill is expected to add to the debt. Last year's tax law, which cut taxes on Social Security benets, helped exacerbate the shortfall. So too did repeal of the individual mandate in so-called Obamacare, which promises to increase the number of people with out health insurance and therefore Medicare payments for uncompensated medical care. Higher decits mean less maneuvering room for poli cymakers when the day of reckoning nally arrives for Social Security and Medi care. In principle, the U.S. is supposed to be paying for ward its Social Security and Medicare obligations by building up trust funds to cover future costs. That money is invested in special government securities, which also collect interest. But when the money is actually needed to pay for benets, economists say a government deep in debt could be hard pressed to make good.

Page E4, THE CIVIL WAR COURIER THE CIVIL WAR COURIER the reenactment hobbyist Only $3.00 Osceola News-Gazette.108 Church Street, Kissimmee Fl 34771407-846-7600 NEW YORK (AP) Bright. Vibrant. Colorful. And, most essentially, fun. The same words used so often to describe Kate Spade's enormously popular handbags "It" bags that were both aspirational and affordable were an apt description of the woman her self, say many in the fashion world. And that only contrib uted to the sense of shock and loss in the industry upon hearing the news Tuesday that Spade had apparently taken her own life at 55. "She was always just as happy and delightful as her collection was," said Fern Mallis, industry consultant and former director of the Council of Fashion Designers of America during Spade's rise to success in the 1990s. "She was every bit the representation of that brand, and the fun of it all." Indeed, Spade had said it herself: "I hope that people remember me not just as a good businesswoman," she told Glamour magazine in 2002, "but as a great friend and a heck of a lot of fun." Spade was found hanged in the bedroom of her Park Avenue apartment Tuesday morning in an apparent suicide, law enforcement of cials said. Spade liked to say that she wasn't obsessed with fash ion, or interested in trends. She tried jeans, for example, decided they didn't look good on her, and moved on. "I grew up in the Midwest, where you have to have (a fashion item) because you like it, not because you're supposed to have it," she told The AP in 2004. "It's an adornment, not an obsession." And a Kate Spade bag was an adornment that was, crucially, affordable, unlike other iterations of "It" bags whose status seemed to hinge on the price tag. "It was a real shift," Mallis said. "Everybody had Kate Spade bags. You could afford them, and happily buy more than one. They were affordable AND terric AND fabulous." Having a Spade bag "was a sign that you were in the know," said Eric Wilson, fashion news director at InStyle. "You associated yourself with this fun, cool, with-it, hip brand that wasn't snobbish or so exclusive that it felt like a European luxury brand." And the bags seemed to effortlessly appeal to a va riety of women. "She had a quirky visual language that captivated Bat Mitzvah girls and artists alike," wrote ac tress Lena Dunham on Twit ter. "She was also a staple of NYC who spread goodwill." Born Katherine Brosnahan, Spade grew up in Kan sas City, Missouri. She was working as an accessories editor at Mademoiselle mag azine when she launched her company with husband Andy in their New York apartment in 1993, based on six shapes of bags she thought every working woman needed. She called them her "stepping stones" and said years later that they were still her favorites. As her brand expanded, "the fun, colorful, bright de signs she created added an el ement of cheerfulness others have tried to emulate," said Deidra Arrington, associate professor of fashion design and merchandising at Virgin ia Commonwealth Univer sity. "She was a visionary." One obvious measure of her inuence was the number of counterfeit Kate Spade bags one could nd on the streets, Arrington said. "Most women remember their rst Kate Spade bag. I still have mine." Indeed, on social media, many women were recalling their rst Spade bag. "My grandmother gave me my rst Kate Spade bag when I was in college," Chelsea Clinton wrote on Twitter. "I still have it." Jenna Bush Hager wrote: "I will never forget the rst Kate Spade bag I got for Christmas in college." Spade was not only about bags: she would expand into shoes, apparel, luggage and other accessories, and statio nery. "Everyone loves to get a letter," Spade told the AP in 2006, explaining that she never used computers and had her staff print out emails. "I love sending them. I love getting them." Spade, who won mul tiple CFDA awards and was named a "giant of design" by House Beautiful magazine, walked away from her com pany in 2007, a year after it was acquired from the Nei man Marcus Group for $125 million by the company then known as Liz Claiborne Inc. Coach, now known as Tapestry, bought the Kate Spade brand last year for $2.4 billion. Spade and her husband who is the broth er of comedian David Spade started a new handbag company recently, Frances Valentine. Wilson, of InStyle, re called often nding her in her store, helping shoppers. "Often I would walk in and I'd see her there serving cus tomers, not telling them 'I'm Kate Spade' or Kate Valentine, her other alias, but just helping people," he said. "I found her to be just down to earth, a normal mom, talking about the trials and tribula tions of raising a child and life in the city." HONOLULU (AP) Lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano destroyed hundreds more homes overnight, over taking two oceanfront com munities where residents were advised to evacuate last week, ofcials said Tuesday. No injuries were reported as most residents heeded the advice to leave. The latest lost homes were in addition to at least 117 others that were previously reported by ofcials since lava began spilling last month from cracks in the ground in a mostly rural dis trict of the Big Island. "We don't have an estimate yet, but safe to say that hundreds of homes were lost in Kapoho Beach Lots and Va cationland last night," Janet Snyder, a spokeswoman for Hawaii County, said Tuesday. A morning overight con rmed that lava had com pletely lled Kapoho Bay, inundated most of Vaca tionland and covered all but the northern part of Kapoho Beach Lots, scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said. Despite earlier reports that lava claimed Big Island Mayor Harry Kim's second home in Vacationland, an aerial yover conrmed his home is still standing, Sny der said. County Managing Director Wil Okabe said his own vacation home in Kapoho Beach Lots was threatened. Okabe described the area as a mix of vacation rentals and year-round residences. "For us it's more of a va cation area, but for those who live there permanently, they're trying to gure out where they're going to be liv ing," he said. Kim and Okabe live in Hilo, the county's seat, which is more than an hour drive from the Kapoho area. One shelter was full Tuesday, ofcials said. Gov. David Ige signed a second supplemental emer gency proclamation Tuesday that gives the county more options for shelters and sets criminal penalties for violat ing emergency rules, such as failing to evacuate and interfering with emergency workers. Lava claimed Harry Po merleau's home in Vacation land. "It's a necessary evil. It's not our land. It belongs to Pele," he said, referring to the Hawaiian volcano god dess. "I have to imagine she knows what she's doing." Kapoho resident Mark Johnson was coming to terms with the possibility of losing his home and 5-acre citrus farm. "I'm really kind of at peace actually," he said. "I've had 28 years of wonderful ex perience down there in Kapoho." Johnson and Pomerleau evacuated last week when authorities with bullhorns ar rived at 1 a.m. saying it was time to get their things and leave. They didn't expect the lava ow to head their way. "God only knows what it's going to do next," Johnson said. He wants to return if lava spares his home on a ridge overlooking the ocean. But it's unclear how long it would take to re-open access to the area, he said. Pomerleau said all of the vacation homes he did handyman work for are gone. Thousands of people in the Puna area had to evacuate after the rst ssure opened May 3. Ofcials issued mandatory orders for residents of Leilani Estates, and those in Kapoho Beach and Va cationland were advised to leave last Friday or risk be ing trapped and unreachable by emergency crews. Homes in Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland are on smaller lots and closer together than those in other parts of the Puna district. Ok abe estimated there are several hundred homes in each of the two subdivisions. Those who live or vacation in the area were mourning the loss of popular tide-pools where kids enjoyed swimming. "That coastline is really important to us a place where we spent time with our family," said Franny Brewer who lives in upper Puna. She reminisced about taking her daughter to swim in the ocean for the rst time in a local swimming spot known as Champagne Ponds. "I've been crying a lot," she said. "It's hard because obviously a lot of people have lost a lot more than just a beautiful place to visit and memories."

Thursday, June 7, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E5 TOKYO (AP) While raising hopes for denuclearization and a peace treaty to nally end the Korean War, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's newly found focus on diplomacy comes with an ironic ip side: It could be a godsend for his generals. Kim's thinking on how his military ts in to his plans to foster detente on the Korean Peninsula and negotiate security guarantees from Washington may become clearer when he sits down with President Donald Trump next week in Singapore. But one thing is already clear. Kim cannot survive without his loyal troops. Whatever grand strategy he has in mind will strongly reect their interests and that includes the ability to make lots of money. Along with the nuclear bombs and intercontinental ballistic missiles that have gotten the world's attention, the Korean People's Army is deeply involved in everything from raising mushrooms and apples to running its national airline and selling the country's mineral resources abroad. So they stand to benet greatly if Kim succeeds in depleting support for sanc tions by negotiating with Trump and the North's af uent neighbors. Rivaled only by the ruling party itself, with which it is carefully intertwined, the military is the biggest and most formidable orga nization in North Korea. It consumes roughly onethird of the country's an nual budget and employs 1 million-plus personnel, making its standing army one of the world's largest despite the North's small population of less than 25 million. From the reign of Kim's father, one of North Korea's most important slogans has been "Military First." And since he took power, Kim has set his sights on si multaneously developing the nation's nuclear forces and its economy. His cur rent diplomatic overtures to China, Seoul and Washington are based on his claim, laid out to party elites in April, to have already "completed" the development of his nuclear arsenal. With the nuclear development mission accom plished, his argument goes, it's time to adopt a "new strategic line" that emphasizes the economy and the strategic use of diplomacy. That should not be seen as a move against his mili tary. Just as shifts in the econ omy since Kim assumed power in late 2011 have created a growing income gap in the civilian sector, so have they contributed to growing disparity within the military ranks, suggests William Brown, an adjunct professor at Georgetown University and former ana lyst with the U.S. State De partment and CIA. "Some units and some soldiers are making good money doing construction work and others are making essentially nothing doing their foxhole duty. Same for the ofcers," he said. "Some are coming out of their 10-year tour of duty with marketable skills, like driving and xing taxis, and others with no skills at all." Brown said that, in the long run, diplomatic success could free Kim to cut costs by reducing the mili tary's bloated ranks. But he stressed that for now "keep ing soldiers happy when others seem to be getting rich is of paramount impor tance." "I get the sense that Kim is getting ready for another massive state wage increase to make state workers, in cluding the military, a little more happy," he said. The military's involvement in such a wide variety of side-businesses also means it is in its interest to see an increase in trade well beyond sales of nuclear technology or missile parts that will likely remain the target of international non-proliferation watchdogs no matter how well Kim's talks go. "They own a large num ber of enterprises, and their share in the mining sec tor is probably one of the largest. So they've de nitely lost out as sanctions have made North Korean coal and mineral exports plunge," said Benjamin Katzeff Silberstein, an as sociate scholar with the non-prot Foreign Policy Research Institute. Silberstein added that the most important role of the military in the econo my is its ability to readily provide manpower where needed, doing construction and road repair work, helping out with the harvest and working in the mines. "That role is hard to quanti fy," he said, "but it is likely massive." Unconrmed reports this week out of Seoul and Washington that Kim recently replaced his top three military ofcials could suggest he is already trying to ensure the mili tary is properly positioned to handle more foreign in vestment and to toe his new line without being lured by an inux of money into cor ruption or insubordination. Symbolic of the mili tary's dual role, one of the three new generals, Kim Su Gil, was at Kim's side dur ing a recent trip to the Wonsan-Kalma tourism zone, a massive development project along the east coast that Pyongyang hopes will become a major attraction for South Korean visitors if sanctions are lifted. The area, crawling with troops known as "soldierbuilders" erecting luxury hotels and paving new roads, was popular with South Korean visitors dur ing a previous period of detente. Its popularity ended abruptly when a North Korean soldier fatally shot a South Korean woman who strayed into a restricted area.

"My cousins Ingrid, Yomira, Paola, Jennifer, Michael, Andrea and Silvia, who was just 2-years-old," the distraught woman said a litany that brought into sharp relief the scope of a disaster for which the nal death toll is far from clear. What was once a collection of verdant canyons, hillsides and farms resembled a moonscape of ash, rock and debris on Tuesday in the aftermath of the fast-moving avalanche of super-heated muck that roared into the tightly knit villages on the mountain's anks, devastating entire families. Two days after the erup tion, the terrain was still too hot in many places for rescue crews to search for bodies or increasingly unlikely with each passing day survi vors. By afternoon a new col umn of smoke was rising from the mountain and Guatemala's disaster agency said volcanic material was descending its south side, prompting an evacuation or der and the closure of a near by national highway. Rescuers, police and journalists hurried to leave the area as a siren wailed and loudspeakers blared, "Evacuate!" The new evacuation order set off a panic even in areas that were not under it. Dozens of people could be seen walk ing down roadsides carrying children or a few belongings beside paralyzed trafc in parts of Escuintla township south of the volcano. A lucky few, like retiree Pantaleon Garcia, was able to load his grandchildren into the back of a pickup with a jug of water and some food, to go to stay with relatives in another town. "You have to be prepared, for the children," he said. Even in more distant cen tral Escuintla, which hosts most of the shelters for those evacuated from other areas, businesses were closed as people left. On Sunday, when the vol cano exploded in a massive cloud of ash and molten rock, Hernandez said her brother and sister ran to check on their 70-year-old grandmoth er on the family's plot of land in the village of San Miguel Los Lotes. "She said that it was God's will, she was not going to ee," Hernandez said. "She was unable to walk. It was hard for her to get around." Her brother and sister made it to safety, but their grandmother has not been seen again. Hernandez and her husband, Francisco Ortiz, sur vived because they moved out of Los Lotes just two months ago to begin a new life on a small plot of land. The couple has been staying at a Mormon church in the nearby city of Escuintla and going to a morgue there to await news. So far only the body of one relative, her 28-year-old cousin, Cesar Gudiel Escalante, has been recovered and identied. "The people ended up buried in nearly 3 meters of lava," Ortiz said. "Nobody is left there." Other families experienced similar tragedies. As President Jimmy Morales toured the area and met with survivors on Monday, a woman begged him to help her loved ones in Los Lotes. "Mr. President, my family is missing. Send a helicopter to throw water over them be cause they are burning," she said. "I have three children, a grandchild, and all my broth ers, my mother, all my fam ily are there. ... More than 20 have disappeared." The fast-moving ows with temperatures as high as 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit (700 Celsius) and hot ash and volcanic gases that can cause rapid asphyxiation caught many off guard. On Tuesday, it was clear that the ofcial death toll was sure to climb and fears spread that anyone still stuck in the buried houses was dead and would remain entombed there. Guatemala's National Institute of Forensic Sciences raised the death toll Tuesday evening to 75. The institute said that 23 of those recov ered bodies had been identi ed. Sergio Cabanas, director of the disaster agency, said Tuesday night at a news con ference that 192 people were listed as missing. He said it was not immediately clear if some of those could be among the unidentied bod ies. Ofcials are crossingchecking census data with aerial photos of homes, regis ters of people in shelters and lists of the missing and in jured, Cabanas said. The only thing they did not yet have was information on the un identied bodies, but would be adding that as it became available, he said. At a roadblock, Joel Gon zalez complained that police wouldn't let him through to see his family's house in the village of San Juan Alote nango, where his 76-year-old father lay buried in ash along with four other relatives. "They say they are going to leave them buried there, and we are not going to know if it's really them," the 39-yearold farmer said. "They are taking away our opportunity to say goodbye." A spokesman for Guate mala's reghters said that once it reaches 72 hours after the eruption, there will be lit tle chance of nding anyone alive. "We don't rule out the pos sibility of some person alive, but the condition in which the homes are makes that possibility pretty unlikely," said the spokesman, Julio Sanchez, adding that some of the ash was still at tempera tures between 750 and 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit (400 and 700 degrees Celsius). In the devastated town of El Rodeo, gray soot coated trees and homes and an ashcovered deer lay dead in the debris. Rescuers wearing hard hats, masks and goggles used shovels to dig through homes, unearthing at least one body burned beyond recognition. Amid the destruction, there was one glimmer of hope: The rescue of a black-andwhite dog found alive in a home where four people lay dead. "He is called Rambo," said volunteer reghter Sergio Vazquez, who carried the dog on his shoulders to safety. "It may be that this dog no lon ger has a family." Vazquez had no explana tion for how the dog survived while the people died. Sanchez, the Conred spokesman, said many dogs and cats had been rescued with burns on their paws from the mud and ash, some blind ed from the volcanic gases. "Animals have a differ ent sort of resistance ... and different behavior when it comes to nding refuge," Sanchez said. Only 17 of the bodies re covered so far have been identied due to the extreme heat that charred their features and burned off ngerprints, and authorities hope other means such as DNA testing can help. Authorities say at least 46 people were injured in the eruption, and 12 shelters were housing 1,877 people. The Guatemalan military said a U.S. Air Force plane was ying in Tuesday to take about a half-dozen children who suffered burns for treat ment in Galveston, Texas. Lacking electricity in the hardest hit areas, emergency crews were carrying out res cue efforts during daylight hours and calling them off for safety reasons when darkness fell. As dawn broke Tuesday, the volcano continued to rattle with what Guatemala's Volcanology Institute said were eight to 10 moderate eruptions per hour vastly less intense than Sunday's big blasts.

Page E6, CITIZEN TRIBUNE HealthEEE-2 Tuesday, June 5, 2018 Eating disorders affect at least 30 million Americans and have the highest mor tality rates of any mental disorder. Those who sur vive eating disorders often have a long, difcult jour ney ahead of them. Eating disorders are classied as mental ill nesses characterized by severe disruptions in eat ing behaviors. In our di et-focused culture, many people may not realize that eating disorders still take a huge toll. As someone who has conducted extensive research and writing in the eld of eating disorder recovery, and who has ongoing personal experience in eating disorder recovery, I have found that although full recovery from an eat ing disorder is possible, it can take time and often requires much action. There can be many causes of eat ing disorders, including genetics, personality, trauma, or often a combination of causes. But by the time a person gets diagnosed by a doctor or therapist, the immediate causes are less relevant than how to re cover. Consistent healthy habits are helpful in the recovery process. Ditch the dietThe most important action that a person can take to recover from eating disorders is to stop dieting. Weight loss dieting is the number one cause of eating disor ders, binge eating, body dissatisfaction and low self-esteem. In contrast, weight-neutral self-care approaches that is, focus ing on maintaining ones current weight have been found to assist in eat ing disorder recovery. But ditching the diet is only the rst step. It is necessary to investigate and address factors that maintain eating disorders. Let go of safety behav iorsMany people in par tial recovery from eating disorders still rely on be haviors that help them feel safe, or less anxious, about their weight or appear ance. These so-called safety behaviors can vary but might include monitoring food intake, monitoring weight, double-checking nutritional values, being very careful about food ingredients, and avoiding eating in social situations. The short-term anxietyreducing benets of safety behaviors are part of what makes them so hard to eliminate. Unfortunately, safety behaviors create a distraction and leave the eating disorder itself un challenged. In order to stop engaging in the safety behaviors that serve to maintain eating disorders, it is impor tant to nd alternate ways of thinking and acting around food, eating, body and weight. Strategies to reach full eating disorder recovery include letting go of safety behaviors and engaging in more self-trust and self-care. Self-weighing is a safety behavior that maintains the overvaluation of weight, which is part of the Ameri can Psychiatric Associa tions denition of eating disorders. Continued concern with weight or shape at the end of treatment has been found to be a strong predictor of relapse back into an eating disorder. A powerful strategy to reduce overvaluation of weight is to consider a per sonal 30-day no weigh experiment. Other safety behaviors that aim at gaining infor mation about ones shape or size such as mirror checking, pinching the fat on ones torso, feeling muscles or bone, engaging in social size comparison, and seeking reassurance from others about ones body all have to be con sidered for elimination. Each one of these exam ples can be a safety behavior that serves to maintain undue concern with ones weight and shape, and in turn, keeps the eating dis order alive. Practice self-trustPracticing self-trust around eat ing means giving oneself unconditional permission to eat when hungry, what ever foods are desired, in the amount desired. Re search has shown that unconditional permission to eat is the exact opposite of an eating disorder. It can be anxiety-producing to give oneself unconditional permission to eat, but it turns out that any kind of food rules, including limits on when, what and how much to eat, led research participants to be more preoccupied with food. Food rules prompted par ticipants to have a much higher tendency to over indulge, especially when they broke one of their food rules. On the other hand, research participants who allowed themselves to eat when hungry and to choose foods and amounts they desired had a lower tendency to overindulge or engage in binge eating. Trusting ones body to direct eating choices is one aspect of self-trust. Selftrust also extends to many other self-care practices. Engage in self-careA persons individual relationship with their own body is the doorway to pathology, meaning if that relationship is not a positive one, a person is at risk of developing an eat ing disorder. In order to fully recover from an eat ing disorder, this doorway must be lled with positive self-care practices. People in recovery can learn to engage in self-care practices that do not contain any elements of self-harm. Overindulgence in food contains both elements of self-care and self-harm. Self-care involves tuning in and listening to body signals and responding in helpful ways. For instance, being tired could elicit telling yourself to rest a bit or turn off the light and go to sleep now. The feeling of being very uncomfortable could signal its time to change this situation, and the feeling of being overwhelmed could mean its time to take a break or time to make a list, depending on the situation. These responses are all dependent on the assump tion of self-trust. One has to trust that the body does not lie. Our bodies tell us what we need to know and responding to their mes sages can help us to fully recover from eating disor ders Take some risksIt can feel scary to let go of safe ty behaviors and to replace them with self-care based on self-trust. Change is inherently risky. But for positive change to occur, it is necessary to take some risks. And it is worth it, because full recovery in volves more than just letting go of eating disorder and safety behaviors. It also involves feeling better about oneself. Research participants who had reached full eat ing disorder recovery had positive self-concepts. Those who were fully re covered from eating disor ders showed higher levels of self-esteem, self-efcacy, or a persons belief in his or her ability to suc ceed at a task, and selfdirectedness than those who were not in recovery or those who were in par tial recovery. Another re search study showed that the more positive ways that participants were able to think about themselves, the less likely they were to drop out of eating disorder treatment. Taking risks to trust ones body and to engage in responsive self-care are almost guaranteed to lead to an improved self-con cept. Taking these risks can be anxiety-producing in the short run but worth it, to reach full eating dis order recovery. Catherine Gillespie is Associate Dean of the School of Education at Drake University.Ditching diets is essential to overcoming eating disordersICE agents X-raying migrants isnt just illegal, its a misuse of science MetroOvercoming body image issues and finding a stable nutrition plan are important steps for those struggling with eating disorders.A teenagers father is murdered in Somalia, and the boy travels to the United States seeking asylum. Another teens father and brother are murdered by extremist groups in Afghanistan and he too makes his way to the U.S. to seek asylum. Since both are minors, federal law decrees that they must be held separately from adults under the oversight of the Ofce of Refugee Reset tlement (ORR). However, in these two cases, and an unknown number of others, these minors were taken in hand cuffs by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and held in adult detention facilities. The reason? In the absence of other informa tion that could corroborate the teens self-reported ages, analysis of their dental X-rays revealed that both could be adults. Lawyers for these two teens sued onthe grounds that sole reliance on Xrays for age determination is illegal, and several fed eral judges agreed. As a forensic anthropol ogist, I support these judicial decisions. My work can include estimating the ages of deceased persons using X-rays of bones and teeth, and Im intimately familiar with the limita tions of how specic these techniques can be. In my eld, we generate an age range alongside several caveats; its irresponsible for ICE to rely solely on X-rays to provide a denitive answer in determining if a person is a minor or an adult. What can bones and teeth tell us?Forensic an thropologists study the hard tissues of the hu man body, which includes bones and teeth. Im typi cally charged with estimat ing biological characteristics of deceased persons, including how old a person was when they died. For children and teenag ers, such an analysis can be carried out by examin ing X-rays. Growth and development are predict able processes, and mile stones occur in a particular order. This is the reason that a tooth such as the rst adult molar is also known as the six-year molar, because it generally erupts in everyone around age 6, give or take. The analysis proceeds the same way whether were examining the Xrays of a living or de ceased person. Essentially, we compare the stage of growth shown in the X-ray to existing growth charts from children and teenagers of known ages. The crucial point is that its not possible to make a denitive, single age de termination from X-rays or examination of bones or teeth. A variety of factors affect how well chronolog ical age corresponds with biological age; that is, the amount of time since birth doesnt necessarily correlate to the exact same stage of growth in every child or teenager. Lots of things can inu ence how well biological and chronological age line up, including nutrition, environmental exposure to disease-causing germs and viruses (and their level of virulence), whether the person has been vaccinated against preventable diseases, body weight, hormones and genetics, among many others. While these factors dif fer between individuals, they also differ broadly between populations of people for instance, as a group, Americans likely develop at a different rate than sub-Saharan Africans. Many of the studies re lied upon to make age estimations are based on populations not represen tative of the individuals to whom theyre being ap plied. Therefore, a certain amount of error can be expected in the nal age estimation. Whats more, this error is immeasure able. Without scientic studies on growth that are specic to each popula tion, we dont know if on average, Population A ages six months, one year or two years faster or slower than Population B. And while many methods are bolstered by a statistical likelihood, this is not the same thing as being cer tain. We can never be 100 percent sure. Estimation ranges ver sus exact agesOf course, the amount of time since birth is the legally impor tant age. But because a disparity exists, forensic anthropologists refer to the results of the scientic methods we use as age estimation. The estimation will never be a pin pointed exact age, because of the variation that exists between individuals and between populations of people. Therefore, forensic anthropologists report age estimations as a range. For example, rather than say ing someone is 17 years and 8 months old, our estimation may be that she is between 17 and 20 years old. Sometimes, the esti mated age range might include ages below and above 18. Take the development of the wisdom tooth, something we often look at when estimating age of older teenagers and young adults. But the de velopment of this tooth is extremely variable, ranging from never developing at all to erupting anywhere from the mid-teens to early 20s. In such cases, how would a nal decision of adult or minor status be made? Federal law dictates that X-rays in cases where adult age is not obvious be used only in concert with other methods, such as verica tion of documentation and interviews. This makes sense because X-rays only provide orienting information rather than a denitive answer. The recent court cases demonstrate that ICE has broken the law by exclusively relying on X-rays for age determination, ruling that the teens be released back into ORRs custody as minors. Are these cases isolated or illustrative of a bigger problem? A 2008 report by the Ofce of Homeland Security found that it was not only unclear how often ICE needed to resort to X-rays to assist with age determination, but unknown how common it was for them to rely solely on X-ray results. Without accurate numbers, there is no way to know how widespread the prac tice is or how to improve the process. The stakes are high. Children especially unaccompanied ones are especially vulnerable. For this reason, the 1997 Flores Settlement Agreement, which ICE is bound by, stipulates that migrant minors be kept separate from unrelated adults. Given recent news that ORR doesnt know the whereabouts of almost 1,500 children it placed, many people have lost con dence in these agencies to do the right or moral thing regarding migrants. If ORR cant keep track of children under its care, can ICE be trusted to lawfully treat people whose ages are uncertain? In this situation, the law is consistent with the sci ence. And as a scientist, I am obligated to ensure my interpretations are not used irresponsibly in a way that could cause harm. Citizens, scientists and government ofcials alike should ensure that refugees and migrants are treated fairly, with the dignity and respect they deserve, and in a way consistent with how we would expect to be treated. Making age deter minations based on X-rays alone is not in line with that goal and can have seri ous punitive consequences for young migrants. Elizabeth A.

Thursday, June 7, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E7 WASHINGTON (AP) Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort made several attempts to tamper with witnesses in his ongoing criminal case, prosecutors said as they asked a federal judge to consider jailing him while he awaits trial. In a court ling prosecutors working for special counsel Robert Mueller wrote that Manafort and one of his associates "repeated ly" contacted two witnesses in an effort to inuence their testimony. The con tacts occurred earlier this year, shortly after a grand jury returned a new indict ment against Manafort and while he was conned to his home. The ling marks the sec ond time that Mueller's team has accused Manafort of violating a judge's order in the case. Late last year, federal agents discovered that Manafort was attempting to ghostwrite an opin ion piece in Ukraine even though he was under a gag order in the case. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jack son gave Manafort until Friday to respond to the al legations of attempted wit ness tampering and she set a hearing for June 15 on the matter. The allegations relate to Manafort's criminal case in Washington where he faces charges of money-launder ing conspiracy, false state ments and acting as an un registered foreign agent for Ukrainian interests. He also faces bank fraud and tax evasion charges in Virginia. The charges, which in volve tens of millions of dollars routed through offshore accounts, do not relate to his work on the Trump campaign or involve allegations of Russian elec tion interference. In the latest court documents, prosecutors say that while he was under house arrest, Manafort and his as sociate attempted to get two witnesses to lie about the nature of lobbying and pub lic relations work they car ried out at Manafort's direc tion on behalf of Ukraine. The court documents do not name Manafort's associate, but they refer to him as "Person A" and note the pseudonym is consistent with previous lings in the case. In earlier lings, Per son A has referred to Kon stantin Kilimnik, a longtime Manafort associate who prosecutors have said has ties to Russian intelligence. Kilimnik, who has denied having connections to Russian intelligence agencies, was also involved in the ghostwritten op-ed matter, which prosecutors also con nect to Person A in the lat est ling. Manafort spokesman Ja son Maloni said his client and his attorneys were re viewing the ling. Reached Tuesday, Kilimnik declined comment. The two witnesses were also not named in court l ings. But prosecutors say they were principals in a public relations rm that worked with Manafort in or ganizing a group of former European ofcials, known as the Hapsburg group, who promoted Ukrainian inter ests in Europe as well as the U.S. The group's work factors into an indictment against Manafort that accuses him of acting as an unregistered foreign agent by lobbying in the U.S. on behalf of Ukrainian interests. Pros ecutors say Manafort di rected the group's work and secretly funneled more than $2 million to it to take posi tions favorable to Ukraine including by lobbying in the U.S. without disclosing that they were being paid to favorably represent the country. Manafort has denied any wrongdoing and pleaded not guilty. Several members of the Hapsburg group have previously denied the alle gations. According to the court ling, Manafort began messaging and calling one of the witnesses in February shortly the unsealing of the indictment that included the allegations of unregistered lobbying related to the Hapsburg group. Around that same time, Manafort's co-defendant and longtime business associate, Rick Gates, pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors. The day after Gates' plea, Manafort messaged and called one of the witnesses and continued reaching out over the next several days, according to a sworn afda vit led by an FBI agent in the case. In one call, the agent wrote, Manafort said he wanted to give the witness a "heads-up about Hapsburg." The individual immediately ended the call "because he was concerned about the outreach," according to the afdavit. On Feb. 26, Manafort sent the person a series of mes sages through an encrypted application, including a link to a Business Insider story with the headline: "Former European leaders struggle to explain themselves after Mueller claims Paul Manafort paid them to lob by for Ukraine." Another message said, "We should talk. I have made clear that they worked in Europe." The witness told inves tigators that he interpreted Manafort's efforts to reach him as a way to inuence his potential statements. The person believed from his experience that the Hapsburg group lobbied in the United States and knew that Manafort knew that as well, the agent wrote. Court papers also accuse Person A of making sev eral attempts to inuence the witnesses' testimony in February and later in April. That month, Person A wrote to one of the witnesses, "My friend P is looking for ways to connect to you to pass you several messages." He then asked if that could be arranged. The witness told federal agents that Manafort and Person A were also trying to get the witnesses to tell members of the Hapsburg group that if they were contacted by anyone, they should say the group only performed lobbying and public relations work in Eu rope. Both witnesses said that wasn't true. CITIZEN TRIBUNE PoliticsTuesday, June 5, 2018 EEE-3 APIn this Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017, le photo, Paul Manafort, President Donald Trumps former campaign chairman, leaves Federal District Court, in Washington. Muellers team accuses Manafort of witness tamperingTrump, his lawyers cite expansive view of executive powerWASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump claimed he has an "absolute right" to pardon himself, part of an extraordinarily ex pansive vision of executive authority that is mostly un tested in court and portends a drawn-out ght with the prosecutors now investigating him. No need of a pardon any way, Trump tweeted Mon day, because "I have done nothing wrong." In fact, his lawyers assert in a memo to special counsel Robert Mueller, it's impos sible for him to have done anything wrong in the area of obstructing justice, an issue Mueller has been in vestigating. That's because, as the country's chief law enforcement ofcer, Trump himself has ultimate control of the Justice Department and executive branch. Beyond that, his lawyers have repeatedly insisted that it's beyond dispute that a sitting president cannot be criminally prosecuted. The legal maneuvering comes as Trump tries re peatedly to undercut the investigation. On Monday, the president tweeted that the appointment of a spe cial counsel was "totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL." On Tuesday, he called it the "Russian Witch Hunt Hoax" and blamed Attorney Jeff Sessions for allowing it to continue. "I would have quickly picked someone else" to lead the Justice Department, Trump tweeted of Sessions, who recused himself from the probe last year following reports of his meeting with the Russian ambassador. Mueller's investigation is moving forward nonetheless, and as it does courts may have to confront ques tions with minimal if any historical precedent. Those include whether a president can be forced to answer questions from prosecutors, whether it's possible for a commander in chief to criminally interfere in investigations and whether a presi dent's broad pardon power can be deployed for corrupt purposes. "There's a reason they're untested. It's because they were unthinkable," said Savannah Law School professor Andrew Wright, who served in the White House counsel's ofce under President Barack Obama. "The president's game here in part is to take issues that are so beyond the pale that they have never been tested and say, 'Look, there's no author ity here on point.'" Mueller is investigating whether Trump associates coordinated with Russia during the 2016 presidential election and whether Trump took steps to shut down that investigation through ac tions including the ring of FBI Director James Comey. Though Trump insists he did nothing wrong, the statements from him and his lawyers, including the justdisclosed January memo to Mueller, make clear that much of their defense re volves around establishing that he was constitutionally empowered to take the ac tions he took. The defense argument suggests that protocols meant to protect against abuses of power are merely norms the American public has come to expect, rather than laws binding on a presi dent. In Trump's view, for instance, he is entitled to re an FBI director Comey or any other for any reason. He can similarly terminate an FBI investigation given the constitutional powers he enjoys, the president's lawyers say. That argument may help ward off allegations from Comey that the presi dent asked him to consider shutting down an FBI inves tigation into former White House national security ad viser Michael Flynn. There is logic to the argu ment that Trump couldn't have obstructed justice by ring Comey, even if the questions haven't been fully resolved, said Josh Blackman, a professor at South Texas College of Law. "If you're trying to apply the obstruction statutes to something the president has the power to do, then I don't think the statute applies," he added. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was questioned repeat edly Monday about whether the president is above the law, said no, he is not. But Blackman said that was overly simplistic, that the better question is how the law applies to the presi dent. "It's a great slogan, but the law doesn't treat the president equal in all respects," Blackman said. "There are certain things the president can do that no one else can do," such as granting par dons and negotiating inter national treaties. There's some historical precedent for a court clash that could be instigated by the Trump investigation, but in many ways the arguments remain unsettled. The Supreme Court, for instance, has never deni tively ruled on the question of whether a president can be forced to testify, though the justices in 1974 did rule that Richard Nixon had to produce recordings and documents that had been sub poenaed. Bill Clinton was subpoe naed in 1998 to appear be fore the Whitewater grand jury, though that subpoena was withdrawn after Clinton struck a deal to give testimo ny. The agreement headed off a potential challenge to the subpoena on constitu tional grounds. In a 1997 ruling allowing Paula Jones' sexual harass ment lawsuit against Clinton to go forward, Justice John Paul Stevens wrote: "We have made clear that in a criminal case the powerful interest in the 'fair admin istration of criminal justice' requires that the evidence be given under appropriate circumstances lest the 'very integrity of the judicial system' be eroded." He also said that presi dents have given testimony and produced documents often enough that "such in teractions ... can scarcely be thought a novelty." Though Mueller has raised the prospect of sub poenaing Trump if he rejects a voluntary interview, it's not clear he'll actually do so. Such a move could theoretically end in a court defeat for Mueller, and would al most certainly prolong the investigation. The past several days have also spurred arguments about the scope of the presi dent's pardon power. Trump has already proved willing to break from pro tocol through granting par dons outside the Justice De partment's pardon attorney, which historically reviews clemency petitions and makes recommendations on worthy candidates. On his own, he has recent ly pardoned conservative Barack Obama critic Dinesh D'Souza, who had pleaded guilty to campaign nance fraud, and former Bush administration White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Lib by. And Trump said he was contemplating clemency for Martha Stewart and former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, among "lots" of other people. A 1974 opinion from the Justice Department's Ofce of Legal Opinion maintains that presidents cannot par don themselves "under the fundamental rule that no one may be a judge in his own case," though that question has never been tested before the country's highest court. The opinion does say that if a president were to declare himself temporarily unable to remain in ofce, the vice president could take over as acting president and pardon the president. In the end, the Mueller investigation raises signicant questions about how to balance a president's right to manage the executive branch as he believes with the pub lic interest that he be subject to the law. "Their argument has antecedents that are legitimate about the president's man agement of the executive branch," said Wright, who also served as a lawyer for former Vice President Al Gore. "But they're taking them well past their logical extremes."

Page E8, SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) A hunch from a retired detective helped lead police to a man suspected of shooting six peo ple to death in the Phoenix area, some of whom were connected to his divorce, authorities said after the assailant killed himself with ofcers closing in. A round-the-clock investigation that began late last week led police Mon day to an extended-stay hotel in suburban Scott sdale where 56-year-old Dwight Lamon Jones was staying. As ofcers ap proached, they heard gun re and found his body. Jones' victims included a well-known forensic psychiatrist who testied against him in court in 2010, two paralegals who worked for the law ofce that represented the suspect's wife, a marriageand-divorce counselor who was apparently tar geted in a case of mistaken identity and a man and a woman whose possible connection to Jones was not immediately disclosed. In an unexpected twist, the suspect's ex-wife, Connie Jones, said her current husband, a retired police detective, made the con nection between her divorce and the crime scenes and notied police of his suspicion Saturday night. Connie Jones said in a statement that her ex-husband was a "very emotionally disturbed person." Jones was arrested in May 2009 at his family's Scottsdale home on a domestic violence charge after his wife said he backed her against a wall, hit her in the face and threatened to kill her, according to court records. The arrest was cited by his then-wife when she led for divorce. "Personally, I have feared for my safety for the past nine years. I can not express the emotions I feel for the innocent fami lies touched by this sense less violence," Connie Jones said. "We started to see that Mr. Jones was visiting them in an effort to right some wrong based on what we could see," said Rich Slavin, assistant police chief in Scottsdale. The slayings began Thursday with the fatal shooting of Dr. Steven Pitt, who, according to court records, had evalu ated Jones and testied in 2010 that he had anxiety and mood disorders and symptoms of a paranoid personality. Pitt said Jones did not conform to social norms and acted impulsively and aggressively. He lacked remorse and close friends and required excessive ad miration, the records said. The testimony was cited in the couple's November 2010 divorce, which grant ed Jones' wife sole custody of their now 21-year-old son. "This is not a success story, but it's a story that has closure," Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Pen zone said. The 59-year-old psychiatrist was well known in his eld and assisted in high-prole murder cases, including the JonBenet Ramsey mystery in Colo rado and a notorious Phoe nix serial killer investiga tion. Paralegals Veleria Sharp, 48, and Laura Anderson, 49, worked at the law of ce that represented Jones' wife. Police believe Jones may have been targeting the attorney, but she was not present Friday when Jones went to the ofce in downtown Scottsdale. Sharp was shot in the head but ran out of the ofce to get help before collapsing on the street, police said. She was pro nounced dead at a hospital. Counselor Marshall Levine, 72, appears to have been mistaken for someone else who once occupied the same ofce. At one time, the space was used by a counselor who saw Jones' son as part of the divorce. Levine, who took over the space, was not involved in the divorce case. Police would not specu late why Jones tracked down people connected to his divorce so long after it happened. They say he had been living in extendedstay hotels for the past nine years. Analysis of shell casings found at Pitts' ofce, the law rm and Levin's ofce conrmed that the victims were killed with the same gun, police said. Jones' DNA was found on one of spent casings. And trafc cameras showed a vehicle tting the description of Jones' gold Mercedes near the law rm 30 minutes before the double killing on Fri day, police said. Police also linked Jones to the fatal shootings of 70-year-old Mary Simmons and 72-year-old Bry on Thomas found dead early Monday in a home in the afuent Fountain Hills suburb. Police identied the couple Monday night, did not provide informa tion on a possible con nection to Jones and did not immediately respond Tuesday to an emailed request for more information. Jones, who was seen driving around Foun tain Hills, was later seen dumping a .22-caliber gun stolen from the Fountain Hills home. Some neighbors who were home on Monday afternoon stepped out to observe the police pres ence that remained on the street, which is usually a serene area. "It's quiet around here," said landscaper Saul Ramirez, who stopped to take cellphone videos of the scene. As police shared new details of the case, several hundred people crowded into a chapel at a mortuary in Scottsdale to honor Pitt with music, humorous stories and a Hebrew prayer of mourning. He was remembered as a perfectionist in his work on major cases and a lov ing man who doted on his ancee and family mem bers. Phoenix police Lt. Bryan Chapman, who had become a close friend dur ing their work on crimi nal cases, said Pitt volunteered countless hours to help investigate many lesser known crimes. "He was the hardest working person I ever met," Chapman said.

(AP) The Miss Amer ica pageant is dropping the swimsuit competition, saying it will no longer judge contestants on their appearance. The competition began nearly 100 years ago in Atlantic City, New Jersey, as a bathing beauty contest designed to keep tourists coming to the seaside resort the weekend after Labor Day. But it has run into resis tance to the swimsuit, and to a lesser extent, evening gown competitions, that had come by some to be seen as outdated. An email scandal last December in which former Miss Amer ica ofcials denigrated the intelligence, appear ance and sex lives of for mer title winners led to a shake-up at the top, and the group's top three lead ership positions are now held by women. "We're not going to judge you on your appear ance because we are inter ested in what makes you you," Gretchen Carlson, a former Miss America who is head of the organiza tion's board of trustees, said while making the an nouncement Tuesday on "Good Morning America." Carlson, whose sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes led to his departure, said the board has heard from potential contestants saying, "We don't want to be out there in high heels and swimsuits." "Guess what?" she said. "You don't have to any more." In place of the swimsuit competition, contestants will participate in an interactive session with the judges "where she will highlight her achievements and goals in life and how she will use her talents, passion, and ambition to perform the job of Miss America," the or ganization said in a state ment. "Miss America's new mission statement is: 'To prepare great women for the world, and to prepare the world for great wom en,'" said Regina Hop per, the group's president and CEO. "We want more young women to see this program as a platform upon which they can advance their desire to make a real difference and to provide them with the nec essary skills and resources for them to succeed in any career path they choose." Leanza Cornett, Miss America 1993, supports the change, adding the swimsuit competition was something she felt she had to endure. "I hated it," she told The Associated Press Tuesday. "I always felt awkward and uncomfortable. But I did recognize the signicance of that part of the competition. Part of the tradition of why we were here in Atlantic City was that it started as a bathing beauty competition. So I put up with it. "In the climate of #MeToo, I think it's a re ally wise decision," she said. "We're living in a dif ferent era now, and when we move forward for the empowerment of women, we will be taken much more seriously, and I think that's huge." Carlson said she is not worried ratings for the na tionally televised broadcast might suffer because of the elimination of swimsuits. She said that the swimsuit portion is not the highest rated section of the broadcast and that viewers seem to be more interested in the talent competition. She also said the group will make changes to the evening wear portion of the competition, adding it will not judge women on their chosen attire. "It's what comes out of their mouths that we care about," she said. The changes will start with this year's broadcast on Sept. 9. Carlson said the Miss America Organization will emphasize its role as a scholarship provider.

AroundOsceola.com DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) It's been a year since three of Qatar's neighbors plus Egypt severed ties with the Gulf state, cut off exports, expelled their citizens and banned Qatari ights from using their airports and airspace. The tiny country has weathered the storm by drawing from its substantial cash reserves, deepening alliances with Turkey and Iran, and using its strategic location in the Persian Gulf as the world's largest pro ducer of liqueed natural gas to continue shipments to major world powers. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt launched the blockade on June 5 last year to pressure Qatar to change its policies. The group, angered by Doha's support for opposition Islamist groups and its ties with Iran, accused the Gulf state of working to destabilize the region and of harboring and support ing terrorists. They made sweeping demands that Qatar change course, shutter its agship Al Jazeera Ara bic news channel and kick out Turkish troops from a base there. Qatar has rejected the accusations and the demands, calling the blockade a polit ically motivated attempt to undermine its sovereignty. When the diplomatic standoff erupted, worried residents rushed to grocery stores in the capital, Doha, emptying out shelves of milk and other food items that had come from Saudi Arabia and the UAE. At the onset of the diplomatic rift, about one-sixth of Qatar's imports were produced in countries that imposed the trade sanctions, according to the International Monetary Fund. Saudi Arabia sealed shut Qatar's only land border and the UAE blocked shipments from its ports to Qatar, but the government in Doha quickly moved to reroute supplies through ports in Oman and India. Rather than rely on imports from its Arab neighbors, Qatar looked to Iran and Turkey to plug the gaps. Qatari ights were rerouted over Iranian airspace. Turkey boosted its military presence in Qatar. Within a day, shelves were restocked. Qatar also air-lifted thousands of cows into the country to ramp up local production of milk and dairy. The government's quick response was hailed by citizens and some of the country's nearly 2 million foreign residents. "There's really no short age in daily life at all," said Gerd Nonneman, a resident of Qatar and professor of International Relations and Gulf Studies at the Qatar branch of Georgetown Uni versity. He's felt an impact, though, professionally. For one, institutions in the blockading countries can no longer engage with those based in Qatar. Also, Nonneman said many of his old friends and colleagues in those countries no longer speak with him due to the political pressures. "The main effect seems to be that colleagues and friends in these countries seem to feel it's not right, or not safe not advisable, let's put it that way to en gage with us," he said. Otherwise, daily life in Qatar continues mostly un interrupted. Construction supplies were also rerouted, allow ing Qatar to continue pace with building new roads, hotels and mega-stadiums as it prepares to host the World Cup in 2022. Still, lower oil prices and the diplomatic rift weighed on the economy. By the end of last year, real estate prices had fallen by about 11 percent. Resident private sector deposits and foreign nancing, like nonresident deposits, dropped by $40 billion. Qatar's non-oil economic growth slowed down from 5.6 percent in 2016 to about 4 percent in 2017. The country, however, comfortably adjusted by drawing from its ample re serves and assets to pump money into the economy and local banks. Qatar's Central Bank re serves took a hit, declining from $31 billion in 2016 to $15 billion last year. Re serves climbed up to $18 billion by the end of Janu ary. Even so, only a fraction of Qatar's wealth is parked in its central bank. The country's sovereign wealth fund, the Qatar Investment Authority, which sold off some of its overseas stakes last year, has assets of around $318 billion, according to the IMF. That gives Qatar considerable wealth to ma neuver. With a tiny population of just over 300,000 citizens, and ownership in the world's largest gas eld off its Persian Gulf coast, Qatar boasts the highest per capita income of any country in the world. "They were always wellplaced in terms of their ex ternal vulnerabilities," said Yasemin Engin, an econo mist at Capital Economics. "Overall, their banks are well-positioned to deal with any shocks." The Gulf state's national oil and gas company, Qatar Petroleum, is the world's largest producer of liqueed natural gas. That makes Qatar extremely important to countries like China, Japan, India and Britain, which rely on its gas to fuel their economies. Even the UAE's electrical grid is fueled by Qatari gas. Despite ties being severed, Qatar still sends about 2 billion cubic feet (56 million cubic meters) of natural gas a day into the UAE, supply ing it with about a third of its daily need. About 200 million cubic feet (5.66 mil lion cubic meters) of that goes on to Oman. The blockade might be most felt by Qatar's national airline, which used to y to 18 cities in the blockading nations, and whose CEO says the company expects large nancial losses as a result. Tourism rates have also fallen. Prior to the block ade, tourists from neigh boring Gulf Arab countries made up just over half of all tourist arrivals into Qa tar. They now make up around 10 percent, according to Capital Economics. Tourist arrivals from other countries fell by 8.6 percent compared to the previous year. With little signs the standoff will end anytime soon, Qatar is trying to lure investors with legislation that will allow 100 percent foreign ownership of lo cal businesses. The UAE is considering a similar law. It appears that with time too, President Donald Trump's administration has shifted its position on the Qatar crisis and is now less supportive of Saudi and Emirati concerns, according to Ayham Kamel of Eurasia Group. Qatar is home to the forward headquarters of the U.S. military's Central Command and hosts around 10,000 American soldiers. In a recent analysis, Ka mel said a partial resolu tion to the crisis is now an increasingly realistic scenario, but it would only in volve symbolic measures like possibly easing restrictions on the travel of Qatari nationals across the region to demonstrate goodwill without actually easing eco nomic pressures on Doha. Mixed-nationality families in the Gulf were affected by the measures, and Qatari students in the Gulf countries were pulled out of nal exams. The crisis also strained traditional kinships in the region. "Growing up, we were always told about the importance of Gulf unity and always raised being taught by our parents and grand parents that we are one community, we are linked with shared ethnic roots and shared cultural and re ligious values," said Haya Alwaleed Al-Thani, a col lege senior who is also related to the large ruling AlThani family. The blockade by three members of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council left Qataris feeling "de ceived and betrayed", she said. The reaction among Qa taris has been an upswell of nationalism and support for Qatar's young ruler, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. "I think our leadership's ability to react quickly and ensure the same high qual ity of life is maintained regardless of the political circumstances has made me feel very proud," she said. "As a Qatari citizen, I've never felt so proud."

Only a few of Guatemala volcanos dead have been identifiedEL RODEO, Guatemala (AP) People of the villages skirting Guatemala's Volcano of Fire have begun mourning the few dead who could be identied af ter an eruption killed doz ens by engulng them in oods of searing ash and mud. Mourners cried over cas kets lined up in a row in the main park of San Juan Alotenango on Monday evening before rescuers stopped their work for an other night. There was no electricity in the hardest hit areas of Los Lotes and El Rodeo, so most searching contin ued only until sunset. As dawn broke Tuesday, the volcano continued to rat tle, with what the country's volcanology institute said were eight to 10 moderate eruptions per hour vastly less intense than Sunday's big blasts. Guatemalan authorities put the death toll at 69, but ofcials said just 17 had been identied so far be cause the intense heat of the volcanic debris ows left most bodies unrecognizable. "It is very difcult for us to identify them because some of the dead lost their features or their nger prints" from the red-hot ows, said Fanuel Garcia, director of the National In stitute of Forensic Scienc es. "We are going to have to resort to other methods ... and if possible take DNA samples to identify them." Authorities say at least 46 people were injured. Twelve shelters were housing 1,877 people. Sunday's eruption caught residents of remote mountain hamlets off guard, with little or no time to ee to safety. Using shovels and back hoes, emergency workers dug through the debris and mud, perilous labor on smoldering terrain still hot enough to melt shoe soles a day after the volcano exploded in a hail of ash, smoke and molten rock. Bodies were so thickly coated with ash that they looked like statues. Rescu ers used sledgehammers to break through the roofs of houses buried in debris up to their rooines to check for anyone trapped inside. Hilda Lopez said her mother and sister were still missing after the slurry of hot gas, ash and rock roared into her village of San Miguel Los Lotes, just below the mountain's anks. "We were at a party, celebrating the birth of a baby, when one of the neighbors shouted at us to come out and see the lava that was coming," the dis traught woman said. "We didn't believe it, and when we went out the hot mud was already coming down the street." "My mother was stuck there, she couldn't get out," said Lopez, weeping and holding her face in her hands. Her husband, Joel Gon zalez, said his father had also been unable to escape and was believed to be "buried back there, at the house." Conred spokesman David de Leon said the vol cano rst erupted around midday Sunday, billowing smoke and ash miles into the sky. Then around 2 p.m., came a new, more powerful explosion. Soon, searing ows of lava, ash and rock mixed with water and debris were gushing down the volcano's anks, blocking roads and burning homes. "It traveled much faster. It arrived in communities right when the evacuation alerts were being sent out," de Leon said. Authorities scrambled to issue an evacuation order. Some communities emptied out safely. But in plac es like Los Lotes and the village of El Rodeo, about eight miles (12 kilometers) downslope from the crater, it was too late for many. The fast-moving ows overtook people in homes and streets with tempera tures reaching as high as 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit (700 Celsius), and hot ash and volcanic gases that can cause rapid asphyxiation. "As soon as we received the information around 6 a.m. that the volcano was in an eruptive phase, the protocol was initiated to verify with different sectors and also talk to the communities, to communi ty leaders," De Leon said. "We had the information from our scientic service, and they told us the trend was that the activity was diminishing." In El Rodeo on Mon day, heavily armed soldiers wearing blue masks to avoid breathing in ash stood guard behind yel low tape cordoning off the disaster scene. Helmeted workers carried bodies away on stretchers, and smoke was still rising from some parts of the ashen landscape strewn with boulders and other debris. President Jimmy Mo rales traveled to survey the disaster area. Emergency crews in he licopters managed to pull at least 10 people alive from areas cut off by the ows. Conred said 3,271 people had been evacuated.Turkey, Iran help wealthy Qatar thrive, one year into blockade

CITIZEN TRIBUNE SportsEEE-2 Monday, June 4, 2018 BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) In some of the bleakest moments during Ariya Jutanugarns back-nine collapse at the U.S. Womens Open, the 22-year-old from Thailand would take a deep breath, smile to herself and think happy thoughts. The mind tricks werent working, but she wasnt going to stop trying. Finally, after an excruciating few hours of golf, the positive vibes came true. Jutanugarn lost a seven-shot lead on the back nine before prevailing on the fourth hole of a playoff to win at Shoal Creek on Sunday for her second major championship. She made a nearly perfect bunker shot to within a foot of the cup on the tournamentclinching hole, beating South Koreas HyoJoo Kim, who shot a 5-under 67 in the nal round to force the playoff. It was not an easy up-and-down for Jutanugarn, who said she didnt have a particularly good lie in the sand. Somehow, she kept her cool. I felt pretty good, Jutanugarn said about her mood before the shot. I dont know why. She felt even better when the ball rolled close enough for an easy putt. A collapse that would have gone down in U.S. Womens Open lore was about to be averted. Jutanugarn said support from her family and coaches helped her stay positive and come through with her ninth LPGA Tour win. I know everythings going to be the same and theyre going to love me the same, Jutanugarn said. Jutanugarn started the day with a four-shot lead over Australias Sarah Jane Smith and looked like she might win easily after opening with a 4 under on the front nine to stretch her lead to seven shots. But a triple bogey on No. 10 cut the lead to four and rocked her condence, especially with her 3-wood. She still had a two-shot lead with two holes remaining, but closed with back-to-back bogeys to fall into a playoff after shooting 73. Jutanugarn and Kim shot 11-under 277 in regulation. In the end, Jutanugarns slow-motion collapse set up an emotional victory and her second major win. She also won the Womens British Open in 2016. The format for the playoff was a two-hole aggregate on 14 and 18, but the players were still tied after the two holes. The format then switched to sudden death, alternating between the same holes. Kim looked like she might win the two-hole aggregate after making a long birdie putt on 14 while Jutanugarn settled for par. But Kim made bogey her rst of the day on 18 while Jutanugarn made par again to send the format to sudden death. On the fourth playoff hole at 18, both players went into greenside bunkers. Kims shot out of the bunker was decent, but Jutanugarns was phenomenal, rolling right next to cup and setting up an easy par putt. Kim missed her putt for par and Jutanugarn tapped in for the win, turning toward her caddie and family for a happy, tearful embrace. Jutanugarn looked nearly invincible during Saturdays third round when she made her move into the lead with a 67, powering through the soggy Shoal Creek course with ease. It was more of the same for a while Sunday when she extended her lead to seven shots. But things were about to get rough in a hurry. Jutanugarn hit her tee shot into the hazard on the 10th and then had a three-putt for a triple bogey. Her condence shaken, she had another bogey on 12 and the tournament was suddenly much closer than anyone expected. While Jutanugarn was fading, the 22-yearold Kim was rolling. She made putt after putt to put pressure on Jutanugarn, including a 50-footer on 15 that pulled her within one shot of the lead. Like everyone else, she was shocked she was still in contention. Honestly, I didnt really worry too much about it because I just focused on how I was going to play, Kim said through a translator. It did not really enter my mind that I was going to come that close. She couldnt quite complete the comeback, which would have been the biggest in the nal round in U.S. Womens Open history. Smith, a 33-year-old from Australia, had a three-shot lead going into the weekend after back-to-back 67s, but nished the tournament with two straight disappointing rounds. She was in the nal group with Jutanugarn, but had a 78 on Sunday to fall into a tie for fth. DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) For the fourth straight year, Bryson DeChambeau leaves Ohio feeling like a winner. This time he had a trophy to show for it, and a handshake with Jack Nicklaus to remember. DeChambeau nally made it easy on himself the third time playing the 18th hole at the Muireld Village on Sunday, rolling in a 12-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole to beat Byeong Hun An and win the Memorial. I cant believe I did it, said DeChambeau, a winner for the second time on the PGA Tour. He had played the Memorial only once before, though the 24-year-old Californian has been a regular in central Ohio. He has made it through the 36hole U.S. Open qualier each of the last three years, all in the Columbus area. This was far more rewarding. DeChambeau watched his putt disappeared and raised both arms, pumping them seven times as he yelled above the cheers of fans. Many of them lingered at the 18th green after spending much of the nal round as if this might be the day Tiger Woods returned to winning. It wasnt. Woods was never a serious factor, especially after missing a 3-foot par putt on the 10th hole and hitting another tee shot into someones backyard on the 13th hole. One of his best weeks hitting the ball ended with an even-par 72 and a six-way tie for 23rd. The nish was no less entertaining. DeChambeau went from a two-shot decit at the turn to a one-shot lead after No. 12, and he kept it the rest of the way until a three-putt bogey on the 18th hole from about 55 feet for a 1-under 71. That tied with An, who had closed with a 69 in the group ahead and was the rst to reach 15-under 273. Kyle Stanley joined them in playoff. He hit into the water on the par-3 12th to fall ve shots behind with six holes to play, only to run off four straight birdies, capping the big run with a 30-foot putt on the 17th to tie DeChambeau. Just his luck, Stanley hit a tree on the right elbow of the dogleg at No. 18, and it shot the ball across the fairway and nearly into a creek, except the ankle-deep rough was thick enough to slow it. Even so, he could only advance it 100 yards and made bogey for a 70. In the playoff, his tee shot was enough to the right that the ball was well above his feet in thick grass. Stanley choked up and took a swing, but the ball squirted ou t about 30 yards to the right, leading to another bogey, and he was quickly eliminated. A couple bad breaks on 18, Stanley said. I mean in the playoff, if I knock that ball 2-3 feet right of where it was I would have had a shot. But after hole 12 my chances were looking pretty slim, so to come back and make some birdies coming in ... its a bit of a sour nish, but proud of the way I hung in there. An took some of the pressure off DeChambeau on the second playoff hole, also on No. 18, when he yanked his approach into the gallery. He played a marvelous op shot out of deep rough to a couple of feet for a certain par, only for DeChambeau to hit his approach 12 feet behind the hole and make the birdie. I nally got it right the third time, DeChambeau said. It took me a little bit. Patrick Cantlay also had a chance on Sunday, leading by two shots going to the back nine. But he didnt make a birdie over his last 10 holes, and he fell back when he went bunker-to-bunker on the 17th and made bogey to fall two strokes behind. Cantlay narrowly missed a 25-foot birdie putt on the nal hole, shot 71 and nished fourth. Peter Uihlein (66) was alone in fth. Joaquin Niemann, the 19-year-old from Chile, birdied the 18th hole to tie for sixth. That was enough for him to earn special temporary membership on the PGA Tour, meaning he can get unlimited sponsor exemptions. Justin Thomas shot 68 and tied for eighth in his debut at No. 1 in the world. He will keep that ranking going into the U.S. Open. Woods started ve shots behind. He pulled to within three shots with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 fth hole, but he didnt make another birdie until he had fallen seven shots behind and only had eight holes in front of him. Woods was second to last in the key putting statistic among the 73 players who went all four rounds. If I just putt normally, I probably would be right there with those guys and up there in the last couple of groups, Wood said. If I just keep building on this, with how Im hitting it right now, Im in good shape for two weeks from now. The next stop for Woods is the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills. DeChambeau will be there, too, his condence higher than ever. He rst played the Memorial in 2016 and was coming off four straight missed cuts. He tied for 38th that week, a small victory, but realized his game wasnt good enough. Now, he has PGA Tour titles in successive seasons. And his victory moved him to No. 8 in the Ryder Cup standings.Jutanugarn wins US Womens Open on fourth playoff hole DeChambeau wins Memorial in playoff on second extra hole APBryson DeChambeau celebrates after beating Beyong Hun An, from South Korea, on the 18th hole in the second playoff hole during the final round of the Memorial golf tournament Sunday, in Dublin, Ohio.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump asserted his presidential power and escalated his efforts to discredit the spe cial counsel Russia probe Monday, declaring he has the "absolute right" to par don himself and attacking the investigation as "totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL!" Trump's comments on Twitter came a day after attorney Rudy Giuliani played down the possibil ity that the president could pardon himself, suggesting he might have that author ity but would be unwise to use it. "Pardoning himself would be unthinkable and probably lead to immediate impeachment," Giuliani, a member of Trump's legal team, told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "And he has no need to do it, he's done nothing wrong." On Twitter Monday, Trump said: "As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the ab solute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong?" He then again decried special coun sel Robert Mueller's probe as a "never ending Witch Hunt." Trump later added that the "appointment of the Special Councel is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL! Despite that, we play the game because I, unlike the Democrats, have done nothing wrong!" Trump's legal team is making clear that it will combat any effort to force the president to testify in front of a grand jury. Gi uliani on Sunday under scored one of the main arguments in a newly unveiled letter sent by Trump's lawyers to Muel ler back in January: A president can't be given a grand jury subpoena as part of the investigation into foreign meddling in the 2016 election. But Giuliani, in a series of television interviews, broke with one of their bolder arguments in the letter that a president could not have committed ob struction of justice because he has ultimate authority over any federal investiga tion. Yet the former New York City mayor, who was not on the legal team when the letter was written, added that Trump "probably does" have the power to pardon himself, an asser tion challenged by legal scholars. He says the presi dent's legal team hasn't dis cussed that option, which many observers believe could plunge the nation into a constitutional crisis. "I think the political ram ications would be tough," Giuliani told ABC's "This Week." ''Pardoning other people is one thing, par doning yourself is tough." Trump has issued two unrelated pardons in recent days and discussed others, a move that has been inter preted as a possible signal to allies ensnared in the Russia probe. The letter is dated Jan. 29 and addressed to Muel ler from John Dowd, a Trump lawyer who has since resigned from the legal team. Mueller has re quested an interview with the president to determine whether he had criminal intent to obstruct the inves tigation into his associates' possible links to Russia's election interference. Giuliani said Sunday that a decision about an interview would not be made until after Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore, and he cast doubt that it would occur at all. "I mean, we're leaning toward not," Giuliani told ABC. "But look, if they can convince us that it will be brief, it would be to the point, there were ve or six points they have to clarify, and with that, we can get this this long nightmare for the for the American public over." In addition to the le gal battles, Trump's team and allies have waged a public relations campaign against Mueller and the Justice Department to discredit the investigation and soften the impact of the special counsel's poten tial ndings. Giuliani said last week that the special counsel probe may be an "entirely illegitimate investigation" and need to be curtailed because, in his estimation, it was based on inappropriately obtained information from an infor mant and Comey's memos. In reality, the FBI began a counterintelligence investigation in July 2016 to determine if Trump cam paign associates were co ordinating with Russia to tip the election. The inves tigation was opened after the hacking of Democratic emails that intelligence ofcials later formally attributed to Russia. Trump's team has re quested a brieng about the informant, but Gi uliani said Sunday that the president would not order the Justice Department to comply because it would negatively affect public opinion. But he contin ued to cast doubt on the special counsel's eventual ndings, suggesting that Trump has already of fered explanations for the matters being investigated and that the special coun sel was biased against the president. "For every one of these things he did, we can write out ve reasons why he did it," Giuliani said. "If four of them are completely innocent and one of them is your assumption that it's a guilty motive, which (Trump) would deny, you can't possibly prosecute him." Trump's legal team has long pushed the special counsel to narrow the scope of its interview. Gi uliani also suggested that Trump's lawyers had been incorrect when they denied that the president was in volved with the letter that offered an explanation for Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians who offered damaging information on Democrat Hillary Clinton. "This is the reason you don't let the president tes tify," Giuliani told ABC. "Our recollection keeps changing, or we're not even asked a question and somebody makes an as sumption." If Trump does not con sent to an interview, Mueller will have to decide whether to go forward with a historic grand jury subpoena. His team raised the possibility in March of subpoenaing the president, but it is not clear if it is still under active consideration. A court battle is likely if Trump's team argues that the president can't be forced to answer questions or be charged with obstruc tion of justice. President Bill Clinton was charged with obstruction in 1998 by the House of Representatives as part of his im peachment trial. And one of the articles of impeach ment prepared against President Richard Nixon in 1974 was for obstruction.

Trump says he has absolute right to pardon himselfImmigration fight, tension on tariffs await Congress returnWASHINGTON (AP) This was supposed to be the quiet time on Capi tol Hill, but Congress returns to work Monday facing a showdown in the House over immigration while Senate Republicans are trying to stop an all-out trade war after President Donald Trump's decision to impose import tariffs on close U.S. allies. Tensions are running particularly high as Sen ate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is threatening to cancel the traditional August recess as he ghts Democratic opposition to GOP priorities in a show of busy-work before the midterm election. It's shaping up to be far from the typical summer slowdown when legislating usually makes way for campaigning. "Another summer, another heavy work load," tweeted Sen. Chuck Grass ley, R-Iowa, as he pushed to conrm nominations. "NOW is the time to vote on Fridays (even wknds!)." The Senate often is not in session on Fridays. Congress faces a few should-do items in the weeks ahead. Topping the agenda is passage of the annual defense bill, which includes pay raises for the troops. It has already cleared the House. The Senate could begin consid eration of its defense bill this week. But the Senate version carries a warning to Trump with a trade pro vision to block any White House plan to lift penalties on the China-based telecommunications company ZTE, which faces trade law violations over selling sensitive technologies to U.S. adversaries. Trump's moves on trade are expected to consume conversations among Senate Republicans this week. They're worried about a wider trade war spik ing prices for home-state businesses and consumers if Trump imposes steel and aluminum tariffs, as planned, on imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union. Republicans will be making the case to the administration that the tariffs could dampen the eco nomic gains from the GOP tax cuts and sour the mood among voters as lawmak ers are campaigning to protect the Republican majority in Congress. Some Republicans are also hoping Trump sim ply changes his mind and doesn't follow through with it. But aides said oth ers may be signing on to a bill from Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, that would subject all trade actions by the ex ecutive branch, including tariffs, to congressional approval. Rep. Will Hurd, R-Texas, said he would support a similar move in the House. "Congress has shared our responsibility when it comes to trade with the executive branch over the last couple of de cades, and I think that's something that we need to re-evaluate," he told CBS' "Face the Nation." Meanwhile, House Republicans face a self-imposed deadline Thursday for resolving an immigration standoff between GOP centrists who are forcing a vote on legislation to protect young immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children and conservatives who want stricter immi gration enforcement with money for Trump's border wall. The centrists want to provide a way for the young immigrants to become permanent residents, which can lead to citizen ship. Conservatives are opposed to creating a new pathway to staying in the U.S. permanently, equating it with granting am nesty to lawbreakers. Speaker Paul Ryan, RWis., and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., are trying to craft a Repub lican-led bill as a compromise between the factions, but it's difcult. House leaders plan a two-hour private meeting of GOP lawmakers Thursday morning to hash out whether talks among the party's factions have produced an immigration compromise that can win broad support. Underscor ing the sensitivity of the session, staff is to be ex cluded. They're trying to prevent the moderates from join ing with Democrats to pass the "Dreamer" protections, which polls suggest are popular, but which would be a setback for GOP lead ers and expose the major ity to complaints from the conservative base. Without a deal, the mod erates say they'll push ahead with enough signa tures on a so-called discharge petition to force the vote over the leadership's objections. Hurd said moderates have the votes already, but are "engaged in conver sations to gure out ... is there another path. I don't believe that there is." Rep. Carlos Curbelo, RFla., said in an interview last week that he saw a 5050 chance of those talks succeeding. He warned that if they didn't bear fruit, he and his supporters "fully expect" to continue pushing their petition. Curbelo said the young immigrants must "be guaranteed a future in our country, meaning they cannot be exposed to de portation." He said, "They must have permanent status immediately and they must have the option of a bridge into the legal immigration system," meaning a pathway to citizenship. The moderates' effort has won the backing of GOP Sen. John McCain, ghting brain cancer back home in Arizona, who tweeted on Saturday: "Congress can't ignore this critical issue and the many lives it impacts any longer." Starting Monday in the Senate, McConnell has teed up votes on three nominees to serve as fed eral district court judges, including the rst His panic lawyer whom Trump nominated for the bench, Fernando Rodriguez Jr. of Texas. The selections are expected to receive biparti san support, though more contentious votes are expected in coming weeks. Republicans have made it a top priority to get Trump's nominees on the bench, to the alarm of Democrats, who say Republicans are working to stack the fed eral judiciary with young ideologues who will shape it for decades to come.

Page E12, NEW YORK (AP) A powerful public gure is accused of sexual assault in a Manhattan hotel room. There's media frenzy. En ter go-to defense attorney Ben Brafman. Brafman, 69, was on the winning end of that scenario in 2011 when he helped former International Monetary Fund director Dominique Strauss-Kahn beat an attempted rape charge. Seven years later, Brafman has an even bigger challenge: defending Har vey Weinstein against sex crime charges. "I'm trying my best to save him in somewhat of an impossible situation he nds himself in," Brafman told The Associated Press. Saving unpopular clients in impossible situations is something of a specialty for Brafman, whose list of past clients includes professional athletes, celebrities and wealthy busi nessmen in trouble, some so vilied many lawyers would shy away from them. He said in the past year he's gotten to know Wein stein as someone with "a forceful personality" who "soaks up all the oxygen in the room," but steadfastly maintains his innocence. In Brafman, Weinstein gets a tactical and pugnacious lawyer willing to ght for him inside court and outside, too, in pressure-cooker conditions. With Strauss-Kahn, Brafman had a case that came to center on the cred ibility of a hotel maid who had accused the inuential French diplomat of sexual assault. Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. the same prosecu tor handling the Weinstein case ultimately dropped the charges, saying there were inconsistencies in the accuser's story. Compared to StraussKahn, Weinstein's case ap pears to be a much heavier lift: He faces more serious allegations of raping one woman in a hotel room, plus forcing another to perform oral sex in his ofce. On top of that, there are dozens of similar al legations against his client by actresses and other women and a climate of outrage fueled by the #MeToo movement. After Weinstein turned himself in May 25, Braf man came out swinging, telling reporters: "Mr. Weinstein did not invent the casting couch in Hollywood," and that "bad be havior is not on trial in this case." In the AP interview, the lawyer said he felt compelled to strike back against months of what he calls unfair press coverage fueled by leaks by authori ties investigating the case. He also claims Vance is under intense political pressure to get a convic tion, further stacking the odds against Weinstein. "I think part of my ethi cal responsibility to a client in a high-prole case is to try and prevent a conviction by what's happening outside of the courtroom," he said. "And when there is a tsunami of bad press in a case like this, for ex ample, I have to be able to try and level the playing eld." He added: "I'm not defending the crime of rape. To falsely accuse a person of rape, however, is equally offensive. And in this case, I believe that there are a number of very wellknown personalities who have made accusations against Harvey Weinstein that are just patently false." An Orthodox Jew who is the son of Holocaust victims, Brafman was raised in Brooklyn and Queens. He graduated from Ohio Northern University College of Law, and served as an assistant district at torney in Manhattan in the mid-1970s before building his defense practice. In 2001, Brafman won an acquittal for hip-hop star Sean Combs after he was accused of tot ing an illegal handgun into a crowded Manhattan nightclub. Brafman says it taught him a lesson about managing hard-charging clients used to calling all the shots. He had less success muzzling another bigname client, Martin "Phar ma Bro" Skhreli, who was convicted at a high-prole trial last year of cheating hedge fund investors. Even after he was found guilty, the former pharma ceutical CEO notorious for inating the price of a life-saving drug kept taunting the likes of Hill ary Clinton on social media, prompting a judge to revoke his bail. Skhreli ended up receiving a sev en-year sentence. Brafman also repre sented conservative author and lmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, who pleaded guilty to making illegal campaign contributions and was sentenced to pro bation. D'Souza was back in the news last week when President Donald Trump announced he was pardoning him. Kenneth Montgomery, a lawyer who has rep resented an accuser in a rape investigation, said Brafman's willingness to engage the media is under standable in a legal system where "the government has a lot of power, and in a day and age where the me dia affects people's opin ion." Some defense attorneys stay pointedly mum out side court, but speaking to the media can make sense if "you want to get in front of" the public narrative of a case, Montgomery said. Attorney Douglas Wigdor, who represented the maid who accused Strauss-Kahn, said Brafman "advocated on behalf of his client and used all his connections and skills to his client's advantage, and I can't really begrudge him for doing that." In any case Brafman takes, "I think the client feels my passion for the work that I'm doing," he said. "I'm not a robot. I'm not just a hired gun. I get paid well, but I earn every single penny." "People ask me if it's fun to be Ben Brafman at a time like this," he said. "It's fun for about a min ute. And then it's just re ally hard work and an awe some responsibility."

Lawyer fights for Harvey Weinstein, in court and outWounded RFK aide from shooting still pushing RFK legacyLOS ANGELES (AP) Paul Schrade had an upclose view of the Kennedy dynasty in the 1960s. The union leader got in volved in politics during John F. Kennedy's 1960 presidential campaign, advised Robert F. Kennedy during his own White House run eight years later and introduced the younger Kennedy to California farmworker union leaders who were instrumental in making poverty and labor pillars of his candidacy. Then, on the early morning of June 5, 1968, an as sassin shot Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. A bullet also struck Schrade in the head. He survived the attack and is now 93-years-old. Schrade and the four oth ers who were injured in the shooting are often over looked players in the assassination that killed Ken nedy at the age of 42 amid his ascendant presidential campaign. When Schrade gained consciousness at a nearby hospital, a United Automobile Workers leader came to his bedside and told him the news: Kennedy was dead. Schrade has relived the moment almost every day of his life. He has dedicated his life to the memory of Kennedy, drawing attention to injustice and forgiving convicted murderer Sirhan Sirhan. Those causes have put him in direct conict with the Los Angeles Police Department and a certain former real estate developer, Donald Trump. "And I don't care," Schrade said. A native of Saratoga Springs, New York, Schrade dropped out of Yale and took a job at an aerospace plant before rising up the ranks of the United Au tomobile Workers union. He met Robert F. Kennedy during the 1960 presidential campaign and they struck up a friendship that remained as he became at torney general and a U.S. senator in New York. Schrade convinced him to visit Delano, Califor nia, where poor Latino and Filipino farmworkers were involved in a strike with growers. Kennedy met United Farm Worker lead ers Cesar Chavez and Dolo res Huerta during the visit. "I saw Kennedy and Chavez meet and interact," Schrade said. "I knew Kennedy would identify with what (the farm workers) were going through." When Kennedy announced he would run for president, Schrade agreed to join his team and advise him on labor issues. The night of the California primary, Schrade almost didn't go to the Ambassador Hotel until he heard a radio report that Kennedy was trailing. But the senator would win California on the strength of the Mexican-American and black vote. During Kennedy's victory speech after the California and South Dakota primary wins, Schrade was on the stage a few feet behind him. As Schrade and Kennedy made their way through the hotel kitchen, they were were shot. "I felt like I was electro cuted," Schrade said. Schrade underwent sur gery and survived despite fragments of bullets remaining in his skull. But he fell into deep depression and lost his re-election for his union ofce. He returned to a factory job where he tried to stay out of politics. To this day, Schrade be lieves Los Angeles police botched the case and failed to investigate possible leads about a second gunman. At Schrade's Los Angeles home, his ofce and liv ing room are stacked with documents arguing that Sirhan Sirhan wasn't the lone shooter. Robert F. Ken nedy Jr. recently announced he believed the case into his father's death needed to be reopened. Los Angeles police and prosecutors consider the case closed. Schrade didn't stay out of the spotlight for too long. In 2010, a $578 mil lion complex of public schools for thousands of students opened on the site of the Ambassador Hotel after a two-decade ght that Schrade had a role in wag ing. The battle involved costly legal feuds with conservationists who wanted to save the historic hotel from razing, and with Trump, who wanted to build the world's tallest skyscraper on the site. The schools today serve predominantly Latino and black students. A "Paul Schrade Library" rests on the spot where the ballroom once stood. The education complex is called Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools. Schrade said many of the problems Kennedy sought to address are still with the country today, including poverty and racial divisions. "A lot of these issues are still with us so we have to look at what Bobby Ken nedy tried to do in 1968," Schrade said. "The ght is not over."

Thursday, June 7, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E13 MOSCOW (AP) For President Vladimir Putin, the World Cup marks a moment of pride, a long-sought opportunity to showcase Russia's achievements and bolster its international pres tige. The Russian leader has made security of the tournament the top prior ity, ordering an array of measures to fend off any potential threats from the ground, sea or air. "This whole event was intended to be a soft power exercise for Russia," said Mark Galeotti, a senior fellow at the Institute for International Relations in Prague who has closely followed Russian security agencies. "The Russians are going to try to ensure they can do whatever they can to make it secure." But despite the meticulous preparations, security challenges abound in a country that has fought a separatist insurgency in the North Caucasus, faced a spate of suicide bomb ing and other terror at tacks for years and waged a military campaign in Syria. Radical Islamists of all stripes could be eager to target the World Cup to hurt Russia and raise their prole. Aware of the looming danger, Russian law en forcement agencies have spent the last few years methodically preparing for the event tracking down radical groups, installing security equipment and conducting drills. "I can assure you that all aspects have been taken into account and we have taken note of all threats," said Alexei So rokin, head of World Cup organizing committee. "The right balance will be found between security and comfort for fans." As part of security measures, the authorities have introduced the so-called Fan ID a chipped ID issued to those willing to attend the World Cup matches after a sweeping background check. At last year's Confed erations Cup, Russian authorities blacklisted 191 fans with criminal records, and just hours before the tournament be gan, dozens more, includ ing members of some radical groups, were refused permission to attend the tournament. Igor Zubov, a deputy Russian interior minister, vowed recently that police wouldn't allow any brawls and would move quickly to deport any foreign fans who violate public order. Among other secu rity precautions, ofcials went as far as to close sea ports near the cities hosting the tournament to all potentially dangerous car go for two months from May 25 to July 25. The ban that covers various chemical components has interfered with normal operations of major auto factories and other indus trial plants across Russia. The Russian authorities also have tightened air trafc rules, broadly expanding no-ight zones near the World Cup host cities and nearby sports facilities. The Russian Defense Ministry and the Federal Security Service (FSB), the main KGB successor agency, have deployed sophisticated anti-drone equipment in all 11 cities that would host the World Cup, including some sys tems that were used to protect a Russian air base in Syria from drone at tacks. The military will pro tect World Cup sites with an array of air defense missiles and other weap ons, and squadrons of ghter jets stand ready to scramble to fend off any air attack. The 2014 Winter Olym pics in Sochi saw a simi lar set of sweeping securi ty measures, but the Word Cup security presents a much more daunting challenge with 11 host cities across the country. "Where Sochi was a very specic location that they could and did abso lutely control access to, this is an event which is going to take place over a period of a month in a whole variety of differ ent locations and cities around the country," Galeotti said. "Realistically speaking, it has become so much harder to con trol." He noted that Russia has relied on massive security operations and screening of each person, but radical Islamists still pose a threat. "The Russians are quite good in terms of dealing with terrorist threats, but in an age of sort of lone wolves radicalized on the Internet, with the in creasing risk of Jihadism spreading among Central Asian guest workers as well, it's inevitably going to be very hard to actually try and guarantee absolute security," Galeotti said. Jane's Terrorism and Insurgency Centre (JTIC) also pointed in a recent report that Islamist mili tants, including Russian jihadists returning from Syria, pose the primary threat to the World Cup. "Although attack trends in Russia have diminished, the World Cup offers a signicant aspirational target for would-be at tackers," its analyst Chris Hawkins said. Putin has estimated that about 9,000 citizens of Russia and other ex-So viet nations have joined militants in Syria, point ing at the need to contain the threat they pose as a key reason behind the Russian military cam paign in the country. The Russian leader made it clear that authori ties wouldn't hesitate to use all means available to fend off a threat. In a recent documenta ry, Putin recalled an episode when he was head ing to the Sochi Olympics' opening ceremony when he received a report that a hijacked passenger airlin er was heading toward the city. He said he instructed the military to act in ac cordance with standard procedure envisaging that a plane posing a threat must be shot down if it can't be diverted. Moments later, ofcials determined that the alarm was false: the incident wasn't a hijacking, merely a drunken brawl, and the plane safely proceeded to its destination in Turkey. Russia has faced a string of terror attacks in the 2000s, stemming from the separatist wars in Chechnya and the Is lamist insurgency that spread across the North Caucasus region. They included the suicide bombing in Mos cow's Domodedovo air port in January 2011 that killed 37 people and in jured more than 180, twin suicide bombings on the Moscow subway in March 2010 that killed 40 people and injured more than 120 and the twin suicide bombings in Volgograd that killed 34. Volgograd is one of the Russian cities hosting the World Cup, and its mayor, Andrei Kosolapov, vows it's now fully safe. "We have made correc tions and the security ser vices, as well as the citi zens of Volgograd always pay attention to that," he said. "We've learned from the examples of previous World Cups in other cit ies in other countries. I'm sure it will be the best World Cup in history." In April 2017, a suicide bombing in St. Peters burg, another World Cup host city, left 16 dead and wounded more than 50 others. Russian authori ties identied the bomber in St. Petersburg as a 22year old Russian national born in the Central Asian nation of Kyrgyzstan and recruited by the Islamic State group. Galeotti noted that while Russia's top do mestic security agency, the FSB, has strong intel ligence resources across the North Caucasus region in Russia's south, its expertise regarding Muslim groups elsewhere in Russia and other ex-Sovi et nations is signicantly less solid. "They have very, very good intelligence net works in the North Cauca sus," Galeotti said. "What they are not at all so effec tive in is having networks in Muslim communities outside that region. The FSB has pretty much no resources and relatively little analytical expertise on Jihadism among Central Asians, and so they are relying on the intel ligence they are getting from their Central Asian partners, which ... isn't very good." Russian authorities have busted numerous IS-related plots in recent months. One of them involved a group of suspects in St. Petersburg who planned to bomb the city's landmark Kazan Cathedral and other crowded sites last fall. In December, Putin telephoned U.S. President Donald Trump to thank him for what the Kremlin described as a CIA tip that prevented the bombings in St. Petersburg. In another recent ter ror plot uncovered by Russia's FSB, the agency said it nabbed several suspected members of an IS sleeper cell plotting at tacks in Moscow and re cei ving orders from the IS in Syria via a messaging app. Russian and Western intelligence agencies had closely exchanged infor mation to secure the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, but such security coopera tion has shrunk as RussiaWest ties have plunged to post-Cold War lows over the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria, and, more recently, the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy and his daughter in Britain. "I think there is still a certain amount of coop eration, but ... it's more grudging, more slow and therefore it's less effec tive," Galeotti said.
