By Charlie Reed For the News-Gazette Osceola County Commission Chairman Fred Hawkins Jr. gave a nod to environmentalist Valerie Anderson at Mondays aernoon board meeting. Hawkins and Anderson became strange allies for a moment while the board discussed a measure that would reduce the population-to-park-ratio requirement in Osceola County by more than 63 percent. Proposed by county sta, the measure would reduce the number of parks required per 1000 residents from 4.0 to 1.5. Valerie, Im gonna give you credit, Hawkins said from the dais to Anderson, who sat in the audience. e St. Cloud land analyst and founder of the grassroots environmental nonprot Friends of Split Oak Forest spoke in the time allotted for public comment ahead of the commissions discussion on the topic. Hawkins and Anderson have been working on opposite sides of future plans for Split Oak Forest, a public conservation area that ocials and developers want to use for the eastward extension of Osceola Parkway. Anderson opposes building the road through the forest while Hawkins, also By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Until three months ago, Ron Wolek didnt know professional beard competitions existed.

Know 2 Solutions is the first to receive a set of special financial incentives as part of the Aerospace Advancement Initiative, a measure approved by Kissimmee commissioners in April. Know 2 Solutions will benefit from $172,000 in waived impact, permit and mobility fees, as well as performance-based incentives if the company hires local and meets established criteria. The Aerospace Advancement Initiative is a push by local officials to attract companies to the more than 100 acres of unused or underused land at Gateway Airport and spur economic development. Providing those benets made Gateway an attractive option for Know 2 Solutions, said Belinda Kirkegard, director of Kissimmee economic development. It definitely played a part in their decisionmaking process, Im sure, Kirkegard said. I know they were looking at a couple different facilities outside of Florida before choosing Gateway. All incentives are performance-based, and the $172,000 figure could still go up or down, Kirkegard said. e company is currently operating in an existing building at the airport with plans to start construction soon. The new facility should be complete in 18 to 24 months, said the airports director. Know 2 Solutions looks forward to integrating into this community, becoming a successful business, creating job opportunities for citizens of Kissimmee, and becoming a leading aerospace and engineering business in the Central Florida area, Chief Operations Officer Pat Geddes told city commissioners Tuesday night shortly before financial incentives were approved as a consent agenda item.

News of the community centers expansion has garnered support from residents and local ocials since plans were announced earlier this year. Executive Director George Wallace said the new LGBT Center of Kissimmee will fill a significant need for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community by providing free HIV and sexual transmitted disease testing, support groups and counseling to an area where such services are in short supply. Wallace estimates that 5 to 30 percent of those who visit the Center in Orlando each week are Osceola County residents. Orlando is right next door, but the drive is still tough, he said. We want to move those services closer to the people who need them. The center has almost reached its $75,000 fundraising goal, which will cover basic facility and operational expenses for a year, Wallace said. In April, the group received a $26,000 grant from Contigo Fund, a South Florida nonprot that emerged from the 2016 Pulse Nightclub shooting. But anyone, regardless of sexual orientation, can utilize Center services. Once it arrives in Kissimmee, the facility plans to cater to its new community by reaching out to Osceola Countys growing Hispanic population. Hiring a bi-lingual manager, providing materials in Spanish and offering all LGBT group sessions in both languages are some of the initiatives Wallace plans to implement at the new location. Offering bi-lingual materials is something we dont even do in Orlando right now, but once we establish it in Kissimmee, Id like to integrate it up here, the director said. Support from Kissimmee residents has been tremendous, Wallace said, noting the enthusiasm he felt from those who stopped by the centers table at Gay Days last weekend. See Center Page 5.

Thats when I started thinking, Well, I might actually win, he said. Wolek ultimately placed second at the event, losing by a hair to a Vancouver native with a clear hometown advantage. But the experience proved positive for the Osceola County resident, who dedicated the win to his grandfather Hank. I never met my grandfather, but out of all my relatives, I look like him the most, Wolek said. And Ive always had a curiosity to know what he was like. His curiosity piqued a few years ago when Woleks uncle told him Hank had run a popular mustache club at a family-owned bar in Syracuse, N.Y., in the 1940s and 50s. Wolek eventually stumbled on a grainy 1963 newspaper clipping featuring his grandfather and 11 other members of the club a few days before a charity shave-o. The vintage black-andwhite aesthetic of the photo, which featured checkered ties, thick wire frame glasses, and of course, neatly clipped mustaches, appealed to Wolek, who had just launched a niche online business selling professional quality faux beards to theater and TV production companies. The custom wig and facial hair site, www. mustacheparlor.com, launched five years ago. Wolek has since crafted custom pieces for entertainers, costume designers, Santa Claus impersonators and even Pittsburgh soccer club members competing in an annual charity tournament. The designer traces his interest in hair and makeup all the way back to his childhood and his mother, Janet, who worked on the hair and makeup design team at Disney World. My mom would come home, and my sister and I were kind of her guinea pigs for new ideas, he said. I grew up around it, and it always interested me. Wolek initially majored in graphic design before attending the barberry and cosmetology program at Academy of Advanced Training in Kissimmee. Wolek cut hair with an ex-Navy barber for his rst professional gig aer graduating. Over the years, hes held a series of lm and stage jobs before landing the biggest barberry gig of his career. From 2012 to 2014, Wolek worked as the ocial special eects artist, barber and mustache-maker for a national tour of the Broadway play War Horse. e tour spanned 35 states with additional stops in Canada and Japan. e actors in War Horse played both English and German soldiers during World War I, and the length of their mustache were a key identier in what group they belonged. The actors loved my mustaches, Wolek said. After that, I started my website, and it helped bring all my skills full circle. Woleks website continues to turn a healthy profit, though the design artist said he still picks up side projects throughout the year to supplement his income. His next big job is stage and make-up work for Howlo-Scream haunted house at SeaWorld in Texas. As for the hair-raising world of professional beard competitions, Wolek isnt sure if he will pursue any other contests in the future. I think Im good with second place, he said. en again, theres this competition coming up soon in Toronto. So well see. By Brian McBride Editor A Kissimmee man faces life in prison aer pleading guilty recently to drug distribution charges. United States Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez announced that Harold Omar Vargas-Delgado, 33, of Kissimmee, Cary Mitchelle Vargas-Delgado, 34, Orlando, and Angel Ruben Maldonado, Jr., 42, of Orlando, pleaded guilty to their involvement in multiple conspiracies to distribute heroin throughout Central Florida. In addition, Harold Omar Vargas-Delgado pleaded guilty to possessing with the intent to distribute a kilogram or more of heroin, possessing a rearm as a convicted felon, and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug tracking crime. He faces a maximum penalty of life in federal prison. Cary Mitchelle Vargas-Delgado faces a maximum penalty of 40 years in federal prison, and Maldonado, Jr. faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison. Previously, two other members of the drug trafficking organization, Eliazer Cruz, 52, of Kissimmee, and Hector Pabellon Nunez, 51, Kissimmee, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute heroin. Cruz faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison, while Nunez faces a maximum penalty of 40 years in federal prison. According to the defendants plea agreements, in March 2016, law enforcement received an anonymous tip about a heroin drug trafficking organization operating in the Central Florida area. On six occasions, between October 2016 and May 2017, an undercover ocer purchased approximately 111 grams of heroin from Cary Mitchelle VargasDelgado, Harold Omar Vargas-Delgados sister. During one of those transactions, Cary Mitchelle Vargas-Delgado, speaking in Spanish, discussed with the ocer the high quality of the heroin and that it was uncut. She said that since the heroin was pure, the officer would be able to work it and make more money. Law enforcement also learned that the drug organization distributed kilogram amounts of heroin weekly to other groups and individuals around Florida. Harold Omar VargasDelgado provided large, distribution amounts of heroin to his sister. She then distributed gram amounts of heroin to others, including Maldonado, Cruz, and Nunez, who would then further aid in the distribution of that heroin to other users. On Oct. 20, 2017, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Harold Omar VargasDelgados home in Kissimmee and seized 2.8 kilograms of heroin laced with fentanyl, along with a brick/ kilogram press; a heat sealer; approximately $16,000 in cash; mens jewelry, including watches, valued at over $100,000; six cellphones; two 50-round ammunition magazine drums; two respirator masks; a hydraulic jack; and a money counter. They also seized eleven rearms, three of which had been reported stolen, and several additional magazines of ammunition. Some of the rearms were recovered from secret compartments that had been custom built into several of the vehicles parked at the home. Also on Oct. 20, 2017, law enforcement officers arrested Cary Mitchelle Vargas-Delgado and seized from inside her home $6,238 in cash, a .380 caliber rearm, a scale, several small baggies and several cellphones. is case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, the Osceola County Bureau of Investigation, and the Kissimmee Police Department.

As Florida Realtors, we know that one of the most important moments in a persons life is holding the keys to their new home for the first time. Homeownership goes hand-in-hand with the American dream. But as severe storms intensify and our states housing stock ages, homeowners need new ways to protect their homes and families from ever-stronger storms. One solution to the problem of stronger storms is PACE financing. Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing is a fast-growing form of financing that eliminates the upfront cost barrier of storm resilience home upgrades. When a homeowner chooses PACE financing to make such an improvement to their home, like installing impact-resistant windows and doors, stronger roofs or energyefficient appliances, he or she does not need to put any money down up front. Instead, a private PACE company pays all costs at the time of the upgrade, and then the homeowner pays for these upgrades as a new line item on their property tax bill for up to 25 years, at a fixed interest rate. The use of PACE for hurricaneproofing homes is extremely valuable to homeowners in a hurricane-prone state like Florida. PACE costs nothing to Florida taxpayers, is completely voluntary and does not involve any government subsidies. Yet PACE can keep Florida families safe by financing the strengthening of their homes. These are some of the reasons PACE financing has been praised as a top-20 idea that can change the world by Scientific American. With PACE financing, families are able to harden their homes against dangerous storms. No family should wonder if their windows and roofs will withstand the next storm and with PACE-financed property upgrades, they dont have to. For these reasons, the PACE industry merits expansion in Florida. Because PACE operates in partnership with local governments, each county or municipality government must opt in to PACE before their residents are able to use the financing tool. Currently, about half the state has access to a residential PACE program, and approximately 20,000 Florida homeowners have taken advantage of this opportunity. PACE should be welcomed to operate in the remaining half of Florida. No family should be denied financing for safety measures because they live in the wrong municipality. PACE should be available statewide. Beyond the benefits PACE financing provides individual homeowners, PACE has been an economic boon for many communities, including ours. Across the country, residential PACE has created more than 40,000 jobs due to increased demand for home improvements. And when homeowners make upgrades with PACE financing, their property values increase, according to analysis by Morningstar. This also improves Floridas housing supply. PACE financing is one of the decades most significant developments in home improvement. It is already benefitting Florida residents, and these benefits only stand to grow in time. As we all prepare once again for hurricane season, those Floridians who have access to PACE should consider whether the financing tool might help them harden their homes against storms. It is proper that all Florida homeowners have the freedom and choice to do the same. Cheryl Grieb is an Osceola County commissioner and a local Realtor.

Earlier this week, Wallace accepted a special proclamation from the city of Kissimmee in recognition of Pride Fest today and the centers contribution to the local LGBT community. County Commissioner Cheryl Grieb, Osceolas rst publicly gay elected ocial, is working with Wallace in his continued search for a physical building to act as the Centers new home. Grieb, who has a background in real estate, said she is looking for a centrally located facility near downtown, but the competitive market is proving dicult. They may have to go with a smaller site and grow to a larger location later, she said. Were still exploring options. Grieb said she was glad to help any way she could. As a youth growing up in Osceola County, Grieb said she questioned her sexual orientation, but a lack of resources and openness about LGBT issues kept her from coming out until her 20s. It was something you just didnt talk about around here, she said. I think the center is going to be a great opportunity, especially for youth who are questioning things. It will give them a safe, supportive outlet to hang out and meet likeminded individuals. She may hold a personal connection to the center, but as a public ocial, Grieb said she also sees its arrival as a positive sign of local growth. Metropolitan areas tend to be huge melting pots, so its easier to be out and proud if youre in a larger city, she said. The fact that the center is coming to Kissimmee, I take that as a healthy sign of growth. Wallace and volunteers from the LGBT Center of Orlando will be at Pride Fest in downtown Kissimmee today as the group works to raise the nal $3,000 of its $75,000 goal. Wallace said it seemed fitting to collect the remaining money in the same community the center would soon serve.

Cheryl Grieb COMMISSIONERSContinued from Page 1 the chairman of a Central Florida regional toll-road authority, supports a plan that would sacrifice a part of the public forest for the road thats needed for future development in the works. Youre allowing the population to grow while shrinking the requirements for parks essentially letting existing parks absorb more and more use, Anderson told the board. Friends of Split Oak Forest has led a lawsuit against the county, essentially to protect Split Oak from being used for the toll road expansion. Osceola County is having diculty keeping up with the established parks requirement so county staff is trying to make the requirement easier to obtain, she said. Thats an affront to the citizens of this county. We rely on you to provide services that the private sector does not and cannot provide. Parks and conservation land is one such amenity. Your job is to provide those amenities and maintain our quality of life as the county grows in population. Natural resource-based recreation is vital to our quality of life, Anderson said. County Manager Don Fisher defended the proposed decrease. The drop is justified because the 4.0 standard that was set by the Osceola County Commission 10-15 years ago was remarkably ambitious and not logical in terms of post-reection of what was done, Don Fisher told the board Monday. Were trying to become more reasonable and more standard with the industry and not have requirements that cant be maintained and so on, Fisher said. County staff told Commissioner Cheryl Grieb that while the requirement was lower it would result in an overall higher percentage of parks per person in Osceola, she said. Grieb said that if the overall goal of the measure proposed county sta is to increase parks rather than decrease parks, then she would support it. Commissioner Viviana Janer agreed with Grieb but asked for even more clarication on the math. I want to see how the 1.5 was calculated, Janer told Fisher and county sta in the audience. Janer said county staff must conrm that the end result (of the proposed lower requirement) is increasing recreational opportunities. Confusion arose during the discussion when county staff could not confirm the figures they used in calculating the 1.5 parks-per-1000 residents proposal.

It wont be around here, so her tennis racket wont melt. Its actually part of a college tour of some interesting campuses Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Creighton, Duke, Notre Dame, Harvard, Brown and Rollins. Why the whirlwind tour? Because, with two high school seasons le aer a very solid sophomore year, she wants to spend her whole summer break getting better. at could be trouble for Orange Belt Conference and District 4A-5 foes she was already 12-3 in singles this season, with losses only to district nalists Freedom and Lake Nona, and combined with a 5-1 OBC doubles record earned this years Osceola News-Gazette Girls Tennis Player of the Year nod. Gearity said aer her freshman year playing a high school schedule, she felt like her competitive edge was better, maybe the best its ever been aer taking up the game six years ago. I had great coaching this year, Gearity said, a nod to Coach Je Bean and assistant Matt Peele. Tennis is fun for me, so I know its going to be a fun summer. Gearity rode a big serve to the No. 1 spot in the Bulldogs lineup and a reliable win in matches, Bean said.

With six county championships, Neptune wins eighth straight middle school County Cup Sports Editor Once again, Neptune Middle School captured the Osceola County middle school all-sports team championship in 2017-18. Osceola School District Athletic Director Ryan Adams may soon want or have to rename the award the Seahawks Cup. Neptune, under the leadership of coach and athletic director Judi Arnold and her dedicated coaching sta, has won the Osceola County Middle School Athletic Conference title every year since Adams introduced it in the 2010-11 school year in the image of the Orange Belt Conference All-Sports championship fought for by the countys public high schools. But where Osceola, St. Cloud and Harmony have passed that trophy around over the last decade, the middle school championship has never le Neptune Road. And, not surprisingly, Neptune athletes usually attend those three high schools or Gateway. Adams said he designed the middle school competition to provide competitive athletic opportunities for as many students as possible and not so much to identify a dominant program. e whole sta of Neptune coaches put in the time to prepare their athletes for the expectations of them if they choose to continue athletics in high school, he said. eir dedication to their athletes is phenomenal, and Ive seen Judi go above and beyond to make it a positive experience for her kids. In the points race, where teams earn ve points for a county championship, three points for being runner-up and one point for reaching the seminals, Neptune scored 49, outpacing Narcoossee (27), which was the county team academic champion, Celebration (26), St. Cloud (21) and Horizon (19). e Seahawks claimed county championships in boys cross country, soccer and track, girls and boys basketball and competitive cheer. ey were runnersup in girls soccer, golf, boys ag football and wrestling and soball, and seminalists in girls cross country, ag football, wrestling (not scored for points since fewer than half the schools compete) and track and boys volleyball. Only girls volleyball did not qualify for the Final Four. Our kids and coaches are competitors, and we push our coaches to challenge the kids, said Arnold, who has been Neptunes AD since 1995. At the beginning of every year we wonder if well be good enough to win it again, and then the kids go out and do things we dont expect. Our boys track team broke six school records this year. Arnold coaches cross country and track, which have been dominant programs among the middle schools since the school opened in 1988. Her coaching sta includes John Prow (boys soccer), Sam Wion (girls soccer, boys track), Wilson Rodriguez (boys basketball), Justin Marino (girls basketball, ag football), Donny Shroyer (golf, soball), Joshua Chattin (wrestling), Sylmari Mendez (cheerleading), Angelo Cruz (boys volleyball) and Edgar Colon (girls volleyball). According to Arnolds math, over the eight years of defending the county cup, Neptune has 44 county championships, 28 SUBMITTED PHOTOSeventh graders Isaac Nieves, Jolaney Quinones, who also broke Neptunes 200-meter school record in 24.41 seconds, and Luis Melendez finish a sprint at the county middle school meet.

Aer almost two solid weeks of wind and rain, the sun nally came out and the weather held hot and steady throughout the day. Take o started at 6:15 am with 83 teams blasting off across the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes in search of the winning bag. At stake was over $14,000 in prize money, a host of prizes, as well as bragging rights until next years tournament. e payout was broken down to 16 places, not including the Big Fish Pot, or prizes awarded for 2nd Big Fish and the team that nished rst out of the money. Boats started arriving for check in at 3pm and the Kissimmee Chain showed out as it has all year. ere were over 15 Florida Trophy catches recorded for an additional bonus to those registered in the program as well as 23 teams that had bags in excess of 20 pounds. A total of 283 bass came across the scales for a total weight of 1101.14 pounds and 53 teams brought in a ve-sh limit. Winning back-toback Help Our Heroes titles was the team of Micah Silverman and Russ Osbourne, after the team of Eric Conant and Michael Foster had a pound deducted o their total weight as a penalty for having two dead sh at weigh-in. Micah and Russ won the $5,325 rst place payout (Wow!) with 34.94 pounds that included a trophy catch of 8.41 pounds. Second place and $2,000 went to Eric and Michael whose ocial weight was 33.99 pounds after the penalty. ey did bring in the Second Big Fish of the day, a sweet 9.83-pounder, and were awarded two entries into the 2019 Bass Pro Shops Big Bass Tour Tournament on the Harris Chain of Lakes. ird place went to the duo of David Howell and Bob Wojcuich (WoJo) with their limit of 31.95 pounds that included the Big Fish of the day, a 9.87-pound Lake Kissimmee Donkey. They took home $1,200 for the win and an additional $1,640 for the Big Bass, as well as a nice trophy to be on display at Wojos Bait and Tackle. Fourth Place and $850 was claimed by Kyle Walters and Jeremy Shekell. ey caught 30.89 pounds that also included a documented Trophy Catch of 8.57 pounds. Fih place went to Charlie Harrelson and Logan Murphy, who also made the top ve last year. They brought 29.47 pounds to the scales and a Trophy Catch of 8.98 pounds as well earning them $500. Its safe to say this tournament could of had different results had two sh brought in by one team not died. Any tournament angler knows to win a tournament you need a ve-sh limit and it is their responsibility to keep ve alive to avoid penalties. Nothing is more devastating then seeing a fish not survive a long day in the shermans livewell. When sh die, they lose weight, too. A dead or stressed sh releases ammonia that can aect the rest of the sh in the livewell. Keeping bass alive after being caught can be a challenge especially in the heat. Dissolved oxygen levels drop when the water temperature soars causing the fish to stress. The summer heat can kill livewell-kept bass especially if caught from deeper cooler water and placed into hot livewells. Most tournaments start at sunrise and last until 3 p.m., and there is a good chance you are going to catch your limit or trophy bass before mid-morning. Here are a few tips if you are a new tournament angler to help keep your prized catch healthy for the weigh-in and for the release. To minimize stress on the fish, anglers should handle them as little a possible, including removing the hook from the shs mouth while it is still in the water if possible. This limited handling helps reduce the loss of slime coat, which is the shs main defense against infection and disease. Maintain healthy oxygen and water quality in the livewells. Know the capacity and dont exceed the ration of more than one pound of bass per gallon of water. Make sure your recirculating pump works before you arrive at the tournament and use it continuously if you have more than five pounds of bass in the livewell. Know your tournament rules as to the amount of bass allowed to be held at any time. Keep the livewell water about 5 to 10 degrees below the lake surface temperature by adding block ice. Ice cools the water, which slows down the metabolism of the bass. You can also include some livewell additives. Toho Marine Lake Toho Wednesday Night Shootout results for May 30: 14 Teams came out despite the rains and 58 Bass and 10 limits were caught for an overall total of 176.04 pounds to come across the scale. Making headlines and in rst place with their limit was the team of Mark Lundgren and Charlie Harrelson with 21.03 pounds earning them $170. Back in the money again with a second place nish was the duo of Skip Stowers and Mark also with a limit. They had 19.20 pounds and went home with $110. Earning $70 for the Denali Rods big bass of the night was the team of Brandon and Sam with a 7-pounder. Have a wonderful weekend and Tight Lines! CINDY JOINTThe Reel Deal I took over this year and knew we were going to be good but had no idea this good, said the coach. Jeanne Marie was theone I turned to knowing she was coming back,and she did everything expected of her. We had condence in our OBC matches; Okay, Jeanne Marie is getting us the lead, lets take it from there. With Gearity, Bean subscribed to the coaching theory of, Coach talent, but let players play. She isbusiness like in her game but well get a smile every now and then, Bean said. When her game wasnt meeting expectations, I would ask her what she was doing wrong and she would know and she knew exactly what it was and then that would calm her down. When she was rolling along I would tell her, Here is my coaching tip, blah blah blah, youre doing great! e best thing is she is only a sophomore and we have even higher goals next year. While shes on that whirlwind summer tour she le last weekend Gearity said shell be working on improving her speed and agility in order to become a well-rounded player and make a splash at the district and regional tournaments. Im already excited for next season, she said.

Saturday, June 9, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 11 By Jessica Sprain Camp is one of those experiences that I will never forget. It has been 18 years since I attended 4-H Camp as a camper, and I remember the good and the bad as if it were yesterday. When I arrived at camp, I remember being scared. It was going to be the rst time I was away from home for multiple nights. I didnt know anyone except for my sister. And I didnt know what to expect. I thought the week was going to be horrible. I would have no friends. I would miss my parents and most of all, I would be bored. To my surprise, and my parents joy, camp was amazing. I tried kayaking, got to do archery, created works of art during arts and cras, learned camp songs, met new friends and most of all, had lots of fun. When I returned home, I immediately asked my parents if I could go back next year. Many parents and youth are hesitant about going to camp. It is a new experience with many challenges. However, camp is great opportunity for all. If you or your child is questioning whether or not to go to camp, here are ve reasons that may change your mind. 1. Camp helps develop social and life skills. Camp activities encourage youth to work together. ey share responsibilities, resolve disagreements, take care of one another, and are challenged to communicate within and outside their social circles. Along with this, camp builds skills necessary to prepare youth to assume roles as successful adults. It promotes creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, independence and self-condence; all the skills that are needed as youth grow. 2. Camp helps youth make new friends that last a lifetime. Friendships made at camp are different than those made elsewhere. Camp friendships are strong. Youth get the opportunity to live with others and experience things without the distractions of daily life. Campers get to spend time getting to know each other, making memories and communicating face-toface. 4-H Camp is a cell phone free zone. erefore, relationships are built in person with those around them. Also, camp is open to every youth. Youth has the opportunity to meet peers from outside their school and after-school environment. They get to meet youth from other neighborhoods, cities and even counties. 3. Camp allows youth to explore and learn new things. Camp is about learning: learning about oneself, others and new ways to see the world. Its about trying new things and overcoming fears. Moving out of ones comfort zone to a place in which they are challenged. is movement leads to the development of self-confidence and resilience. Camp also promotes unstructured learning, free play and exploration. At camp, youth gets to experience new things, such as, kayaking, shing, hiking, swimming, archery and many more activities. ese experiences help guide personal interests, hobbies and potential future career choices. 4. Camp is a great place to enjoy nature. Camp provides a natural outdoor learning environment. It is a place to see, In celebration of National Trauma Awareness Month, the Trauma Center at Osceola Regional Medical Center recently held an event to honor former patients and their families. In emotional reunions, 11 survivors and their medical teams celebrated recovery stories and bonded over past experiences. The hospitals Level II Trauma Center has treated more than 4,900 critically injured patients since it was designated a Provisional Level II Trauma Center in May 2015, according to a hospital press release. Additionally, since August 2017, the hospitals trauma education team has trained more than 3,600 people on critical bleedingcontrol skills through the national Stop The Bleed initiative. This year, our trauma team has already treated close to 850 patients, and for eleven survivors to be here with us at todays event is an opportunity that we do not take for granted, said Dr. Racy Bilski, trauma medical director at Osceola Regional Medical Center. Working with traumatic injuries is challenging, but events like this are inspiring and show the dedication of our trauma and hospital team to our patients. e leading cause of death among Floridians under age 44, traumatic injuries are severe and sudden in nature, and require urgent medical attention. The only trauma center in Osceola County, Osceola Regional plays a critical role not only in treatment, but also in the recovery from such injuries, the press release stated. e hospitals Inpatient Acute Physical Rehabilitation Center is designed specically for patients with traumatic injuries, debilitating diseases and spine injuries. Our trauma center elevates our hospital to a higher level of care, which is critical to our communitys growing population, said Davide Carbone, CEO of Osceola Regional Medical Center. Every survivor here today has a story, and we are privileged to play a small part in each and every one of those stories.

In its rst 22 days, the station has already seen over 28 hours of usage. e ocial launch took place on April 20 at Poinciana Medical Center where Osceola School District Superintendent Debra Pace, Osceola County Commissioner Brandon Arrington, School Board Member Tim Weisheyer and Poinciana Medical Center CEO Chris Cosby came together to commemorate the rst stations installation. Prior to the launch, the station was showcased at an event to stakeholders, and there was an overwhelming response to have more stations throughout the community with Osceola Reads new Sponsor-a-Station program. This program will provide community organizations and businesses the opportunity to sponsor a technology station in and around their business or another location of their choosing in Osceola County. At this time, Osceola Reads is working on committing more stations which will benefit readers in kindergarten and younger. In the two years that Osceola Reads has been an active initiative in Osceola County, over 7,000 users have been registered on the Footsteps2Brilliance app in the community and local VPK programs, not including all students VPK through 2nd grade who have been registered in the districts elementary schools in Osceola County. With the Sponsor-a-Station program, Osceola Reads will be able to bring this initiative to areas of the community that will reach families who lack the resources to utilize the free reading app. If you are interested in sponsoring an Osceola Reads Station or know of someone who might be interested, visit www.OsceolaReads.com/ SponsorAStation or contact info@ osceolareads.com.

Dear Mayo Clinic: Every year when I get my mammogram, the results are that the breasts are too dense to see small cancers. Why should I keep getting mammograms? Should I instead ask for an ultrasound to look for cancer? Also, are self-exams still recommended? You dont hear much about them anymore. Answer: Increased breast density can make interpreting mammograms difficult. Even if your breasts are dense, however, Mayo Clinic recommends an annual mammogram starting at age 40. Some women who are at a high risk for breast cancer may need to start screening earlier. Depending on your situation, your doctor may recommend additional screening tests, too. Breast self-exams are no longer formally recommended, but it is important for you to be familiar with your breasts typical appearance. Breast tissue that is not dense contains fat and appears dark on a mammogram. Dense breast tissue is composed of milk glands, milk ducts and supportive breast tissue. Dense tissue appears white on a mammogram. There are four levels of breast density: fatty, scattered fibroglandular, heterogeneously dense and extremely dense. If you have heterogeneously or extremely dense breasts, your breasts are considered dense. Some states require the level of breast density to be documented on your mammogram report. Because both dense tissue and cancer appear white on mammogram images, a high level of breast density can obscure cancer on a mammogram. Mammograms, however, Screening exams can help catch breast cancer earlySee Cancer, Page 15. Wednesday, June 13, from 2 to 5 p.m., Taking Control of Your Money, at UF|IFAS Extension Osceola County.

Saturday, June 9, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 13 By Cathy M. Rosenthal Dear Cathy, I look forward to your weekly column in my paper, however, Im afraid I must disagree with your mention of foam and aluminum foil as good toys for our cats to play with. Foam is easily bitten into and swallowed, as is aluminum foil, both of which can cause intestinal problems and blocked colons (where the object cant be passed). Aluminum foil is also deadly. Ask any veterinarian and they will agree of the dangers. In fact, most cat toys out there are harmful to cats. Pompom balls and feathered toys should be used under close supervision. If the consumer reads the warning label on our cat toys, they would see that it says under warning, product could cause harm if ingested. e best toys are handmade craed organic pet toys in Chesterton, Ind. Ive bought my cat toys from them for many years, and my girls are perfectly happy and safe, giving their cat-mom peaceof-mind. This helicopter mom thanks you for letting me voice my opinion. Bonnie, Demotte, IN Dear Bonnie, anks for your insights. I followed your suggestion that I ask any veterinarian, and reached out to the American Veterinary Medical Association. They basically said they have no ocial policy on cat toys or comments on aluminum foil, and that one should contact their local veterinarian for advice. That doesnt help us, so I contacted a few veterinarians whom I know, and while there are better toys for a cat, aluminum foil balls are not generally a big concern, they say. (ey did say never to use foil that had been used with food, since the food smells could be tempting to dogs.) I also called two national animal groups, but they couldnt give me a denitive answer either. If I hear something in the next few weeks from the groups or from readers that contradicts my comments here, I will follow up on this topic. In the meantime, almost every toy on the market has a tag on it that says the item could be harmful if digested. Anything eaten in large amounts, including food, can cause an intestinal blockage. Of course, if one has a cat that likes to bite or rip things apart, an aluminum foil ball is not a good choice for a toy. While cats are less likely than dogs to chew apart and swallow their toys, there are a few felines that are up to the task. All dogs and cats should be supervised when playing with their toys, and the toys should be taken away if they start to eat or destroy them. Dear Cathy, My 7-year-old brown Shih Tzu has a black hot spot on his right-hind quarter. It was a small dot but has grown to over three-inches and is raised. e vet said not to worry about it, but we are concerned. Is it a mole, is it cancer, is it nothing? While it doesnt appear to bother eo, we would like a denitive answer. Nick, Medford, New York, NY Dear Nick, Has your veterinarian seen the hot spot since it turned big and ugly? It may have started out as nothing but could be morphing into something. The change in shape and size is worth a second trip to your veterinarians oce to find out whats going on. Even if its not serious, your veterinarian may recommend a different course of treatment. Dear Cathy, I have a 6-year-old indoor cat. He was rescued from the shelter several years ago by my daughter. He is incredibly sweet and affectionate and very attached to me. However, clipping his nails is almost impossible. He just wont allow it. I must bring him to a pet store to have it done. Is there anything I can give him to relax him? Taking him out to the pet store is extremely stressful for him. Melatonin, perhaps? If so, how much? Linda, East Northport, NY Dear Linda, Its normal for cats to get anxious and tense in new situations. While melatonin can be administered to cats for anxiety and fear, cats are not like dogs and humans and metabolize things dierently. So, please consult your veterinarian on dosage and maybe a recommended brand. Until then, look for an over-the-counter calming aid, especially for cats, that has melatonin listed as an ingredient. Often these products will contain other ingredients like thiamine, L-Tryptophan, ginger, and chamomile, which can also ease your cats anxiety. e proper dosage will be on Why pets must be supervised with their toy Cathy M.

Supporting Emmy hopefuls steal scenesBy Gregory Ellwood Dont tell the lead actors out there battling for Emmy consideration, but weve got a little secret to share. It turns out that sometimes its their supporting co-stars who are actually the real reason viewers are obsessed with their programs. Take, for instance, the legendary Rita Moreno who plays the feisty grandmother Lydia on Netflixs One Day at a Time, a role that appeals to viewers of all ages. When people see it, they become a diehard fan, Moreno says with a laugh. But what absolutely amuses the hell out of me is that shes the favorite character of many of the younger kids, which means teens and particularly even younger ones, which absolutely astonishes me. In the second goaround of the Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce reboot of Norman Lears s sitcom, Lydia, a Cuban immigrant, gets her American citizenship and ends the season with a dramatic hospital scare. e show tapes before a live audience and Moreno says the directors who come on board are surprised that each episode oen has at least one scene composed of 15 pages of dialogue. I dont know how other shows do it, but its a lot, and when youre 86 its really a lot, Moreno says. Let me tell you, there are times when its really hairy for me. But I think to myself, OK, you better work on this real hard over the weekend because this is not an easy scene. And you are 86, dearie. But, you know what? By the end of the season, Im so alert its scary. In 2017 Nicole Kidman won an Emmy for lead actress in a limited series for her work as an abused wife on HBOs Big Little Lies. is season she drew the audiences attention in the supporting role of Julia, an intellectual who has an estranged relationship with her adopted teenage daughter in the acclaimed mystery-drama Top of the Lake: China Girl. e Australian native has known series creator Jane Campion since she was 15, and they had previously worked together on 1997s The Portrait of a Lady. Not surprisingly, that factor was a huge attraction for Kidman in ultimately taking the part. She had written the role for me and promised me a character role, which I love, Kidman says. It was a territory I had never entered before. To play this intellectual Australia woman who is in love with another woman, and she leaves the man she adopted her daughter with, is wonderfully complicated. Just a ripe, rich character. And she was funny. Which I rarely get to be. Well, at least I thought she was. Its hard to steal the show from five energetic and charismatic teenage kids, but David Harbour continued his stellar work as police chief Jim Hopper in the second season of Stranger ings. Harbour, who earned an Emmy nom last year for the role, sees Hopper as a man who will sacrifice everything in the name of justice. Its one reason his character goes to extremes to keep the super-powered Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) out of government hands. Theres a certain hardness in Hopper that I myself dont have as much of, which is somewhat dicult for me to play. So, I was pleased that I was able to do that and that no one, from what Ive heard, questions that relationship or what it was about, Harbour says of Hopper and Eleven. ere was just a rocksolid foundation. at was tricky line for me to ride as an actor, and I felt like I did accomplish that, so I was happy and proud of that.See Emmy, Page 15.

Email it to Editor Brian McBride at bmcbride@ osceolanewsgazette.com. Please include the name of the dish, your name, your city and a phone number so we can conrm you sent in a recipe. Just like some people insist that charcoal grills trump gas grills or vice versa, some backyard barbecue devotees swear by particular grilling techniques. Such lighthearted debates may never end, and novice grillmasters who want to join the fray can study up on the various grilling techniques before trying them out and forming their own opinions. 1. Smoking Smoking is one grilling technique that is growing in popularity, as products such as the Big Green Egg inspire more people to smoke their foods. Smoking involves cooking foods in closed chambers at low temperatures. Smoking is not the quickest way to whip up a meal, as the low temperatures require foods be cooked for lengthy periods of time. People who prefer their foods have a smoky avor would no doubt prefer smoking over any other grilling technique. 2. Spit roasting Also known as rotisserie grilling, spit roasting may call to mind pig roasts in which food placed in a chamber with a rotating, oen motorized spit. Indirect heat is used to cook the foods placed on the spit or skewer, and spit roasting is oen a go-to method for cooking whole birds or ribs. 3. Indirect grilling When employing this technique to grill foods, cooks will not place their foods over a direct heat source, such as an open ame. Instead, the foods are placed in a chamber away from the heat source before the lid is closed. e lid will remain closed while the food cooks, which can take a long time. Some people prefer indirect grilling because it tends to produce foods that are well cooked on the inside but do not have the charred exterior that foods grilled by other means may have. 4. Plank grilling Popular among people who like to grill sh, plank grilling involves putting food on top of a plank of wood and then placing the plank over a direct heat source. In addition to the avor imparted to the food from the heat source, such as charcoal, the plank itself can add its own unique avor. ough sh is perhaps the food most widely associated with plank grilling, this technique also can be a great way to grill vegetables.4 popular grilling techniques Tips for grilling the perfect burger Orange-Ginger Baby Back RibsIngredients: 5pounds baby back ribs Sauce: 1 cup ketchup 1/2 cup hoisin sauce 4 tbsp soy sauce 2 tbsp. grainy mustard 3 tbsp honey 2 tbsp orange juice 2 tbsp. Asian chili sauce 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 4 clov es garlic, minced 1 tbsp. ginger Gr ated zest of an orange S alt and pepper Directions:Preheat the grill to medium and turn down to low. Prepare ribs for grilling by removing the membrane from the underside of the ribs. Prepare several foil envelopes and place 2 strips of ribs into each envelope, with 1/4 cup of water and seal tightly. Cook for 2 to 21/2 hours on low (300*F) with the lid closed. Check the thermometer on the front of the grill lid frequently and adjust the cooking temperature accordingly. This may require turning one or two burners off and cooking indirectly. To prepare the sauce: Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and set aside until the ribs are ready to remove from the foil. Gently heat the sauce on the side burner for 10 to 15 minutes before using. Carefully remove the ribs from the foil and place on grids. Baste generously with sauce, and grill for 10 minutes per side, leaving the lid open, turning several times, and basting with sauce after each turn.

Chef BBQ Naz, a grilling expert from Broil King, shares some simple tips for avor perfection. When preparing vegetables, slice them to expose as much of the vegetable to the grill surface as you can. Coat vegetables with olive oil before placing them on the grill. is will help prevent them from sticking to the grill. Use the right tool for the job. Accessories like grill toppers and skewers are perfect for keeping smaller foods like cherry tomatoes and onions from rolling around or falling through the grate. Dont leave vegetables unattended. Vegetables are delicate and can easily overcook if not monitored. Grill extras. Leover grilled vegetables are great in soups, salads, sandwiches and on pizzas and pasta. When grilling vegetables, consider this popular recipe. Hamburgers are a staple at backyard barbecues. ough burgers are a relatively simple food, mastering the technique to grill burgers is no small feat, as there is more to great grilled burgers than simply ring up the grill and dropping down a patty. Choose fresh ground beef that has a decent percentage of fat. e fat-to-lean meat ratio should be around 20 percent fat to 80 percent meat. Spend a little more to get freshly ground meat that has not been previously frozen. Dont overwork the burgers with a lot of handling. is will warm up the fat in the burger, which causes it to emulsify and could make the meat rubbery. Reconsider adding a lot of herbs, spices or add-ins to the burgers, as such items can detract from the avor of the meat. Extra herbs and spices also may require extra mixing, which can lead overhandling. Push a dimple into the top of the burger, which will help prevent the burger from expanding upward and out while cooking and rounding out in the process. e dimple will keep the top of the burger at, which facilitates easy topping. Make sure the grill is hot. Burgers do well with high heat and will cook relatively quickly. Resist the urge to push down on the patty with your spatula. is will cause the juices to spill out and may result in a dry, tough burger. Let burgers rest before serving. is lets the juices redistribute throughout and makes for a moist and tasty rst bite. Explore new avors over an open ame Just about anything can be cooked over an open ame. No matter the type of grilling theyre using, cooks who prepare meals over an open flame cant help but notice the distinctive avor thats unique to grilled foods. Trying something new this grilling season can open cooks eyes to a host of avors they might not instantly associate with grilling. e following recipe for Ginger Soy Chicken Breasts from Eric Treuille and Birgit Eraths Grilling (DK Publishing) is one such meal that can open cooks eyes to the many wonderful foods that can be cooked over an open ame.

CANCERContinued from Page 12 are still very useful for detecting breast changes that could indicate cancer, even in women who have dense breast tissue. Mammograms remain one of the most important tools in the fight against breast cancer. Studies of women in their 40s and 50s have shown that screening mammograms decrease breast cancer deaths by 15 to 20 percent. Along with your annual mammogram, talk with your doctor about your individual breast cancer risk. Women with dense breasts may benefit from supplemental imaging, such as 3D digital breast tomosynthesis or molecular breast imaging. Women with a high risk for breast cancer may benefit from breast MRI. Be mindful that there is a downside to some supplemental screening tests. e test could nd an abnormality that requires further investigation which ultimately turns out benign, therefore subjecting you to the risk of an unnecessary medical procedure. Also, your insurance may not cover the cost of some supplemental screening studies, leaving you with an out-of-pocket expense. And nally, at this time research remains inconclusive about whether supplemental breast imaging reduces the rate of breast cancer deaths overall. Some healthcare facilities do use handheld ultrasound testing to scan the whole breast. However, consistent, high-quality handheld ultrasound examinations of the entire breast are dicult to perform. Mayo Clinic does not use ultrasound as a supplemental screening tool to scan the entire breast for cancer. Mayo Clinic does use diagnostic ultrasound to investigate specic areas of the breast that look or feel abnormal or appear abnormal on a mammogram image. In addition to screening exams, breast self-awareness can be key to catching breast cancer early. The breast self-exams that used to be routinely recommended are no longer used as part of breast cancer screening. Thats because research hasnt shown a clear benet. Still, you should be aware of the general appearance and feel of your breasts. If you notice any of the following changes, report them to your doctor right away: a breast lump; a change in the texture of your breast tissue; breast skin changes, such as dimpling or redness; a change in the position of a nipple; change in breast symmetry; or discharge from a nipple. For the best breast care, talk with your doctor about your cancer screening options. Together, you and your doctor can decide based on your individual risk factors what specific breast cancer screening tests are right for you.

The fact that its so successful youd think that come season two people would hunker down and be like, OK, we have a formula, lets not f*** it up. And instead, its just constantly taking risks. Alex Borsteins road to playing fledgling comedy manager Susie Myerson, who takes on the title client in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, was truly unexpected. The veteran actress had just moved her family across the Atlantic and put her kids in school in Barcelona when she was asked to audition for Amy Sherman-Palladinos pilot in New York. I had just made a decision to kind of leave and not really do any more oncamera stu and then Amy sent me that script and I was like, is is good. I gotta do this, she says. As Susie, Borstein not only plays a character breaking down doors for a 1950s housewife with impressive standup comedy skills, the marvelous Midge (Rachel Brosnahan), but someone battling the inherent patriarchy of the entertainment world, particularly the comedy scene. Our show is hugely optimistic, which is rare right now, Borstein says. is little girl, Midge, is such a rubber-tree plant mover. High hopes and a big dreamer and to root for her, I feel like that might be a welcome respite from a lot of this. A lot of shows are just such downers. A lot of grit now. A lot of realism and a lot of reality. e only standout in this group who had the pressure of playing a real-life historical gure is Vanessa Kirby who portrayed Princess Margaret in e Crown. And her role is noted in the past tense, as creator Peter Morgan has stuck by his original plan to recast the series every two seasons. (In the third season, Oscar nominee Helena Bonham Carter will take over the role.) Kirby admits part of her wanted to play Margaret during her unraveling later in life, but soon realized she was helping to chronicle a side of Queen Elizabeth IIs sister long forgotten. I knew that I had to sort of hold back because I felt like my job and obligation really was to really show up her young life, Kirby says. Id heard so much about her, and in her later life she has been kind of a tragic gure; I was like, People arent born tragic. And what happened to her in life so that she sort of hardened and became bitter or dicult or angry in a way? Kirby did a tremendous amount of research for the role, including speaking to ladies in waiting who knew Margaret in the s and early s when her portion of e Crown takes place. She says that she fell in love with Margaret and felt a duty to capture her essence at the time, especially considering shed passed away in 2002. One of the ladies in waiting said that I was more Margaret than Margaret, which I cant believe is possible, Kirby says. Ive never told anyone that, but that was probably the nicest thing anyone said about it. Gregory Ellwood is a writer for Variety.

Page 18 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, June 9, 2018 (BPT) Whether its transforming a xer-upper into your dream home or just giving a makeover to your kitchen or bathroom, home improvement projects are on the minds of many new homeowners across the country. While many things about renovating your home are exible, your budget might not be. In general, not a single oorboard is laid, or a new countertop installed without money, which is why every home renovation project should begin with careful nancial planning. To help homeowners with their renovation projects, Marcus by Goldman Sachs is working with home renovation expert, JoJo Fletcher, to share her budget-friendly home renovation tips. Think about small changes you can make if you dont have the time to take on a big project right now, like freshening up any kitchen by renishing your cabinets with a bright white coat of paint, said JoJo Fletcher, ambassador for Marcus by Goldman Sachs(R). When it comes to financing a larger project, however, I recommend homeowners explore all their options in order to get the most out of their budget. ere are several ways to nance these projects and its important to explore your options to nd the one thats right for you. Below are ve important tips to keep in mind when deciding how to fund your next home project. 1. Shop around. The better you plan, the better chance youll save money. Before anything gets torn out or installed, you should spend time consulting with contractors and getting estimates. Look at the work theyve done to see if they would be a good t. Most importantly, dont be afraid to ask a lot of questions to make sure youre working with the right people and paying the right price. 2. Consider financing options. There are several options when financing a home improvement project and it is important to choose the right t for you. Home equity loans and home equity lines of credit (HELOC) require you to borrow against the value of your home, with home equity loans oering a lump sum while home equity lines of credit provide you with a credit line you can borrow against. An unsecured home improvement loan can be used based on your creditworthiness and ability to pay, not tied to a piece of collateral. JoJo Fletcher added, I recommend homeowners consider a home improvement loan if they are looking to borrow money and have good credit. For instance, Marcus by Goldman Sachs offers no-fee, fixed rate home improvement loans up to $40,000, which could be a better option than putting renovation costs on a higher interest credit card, or borrowing against your homes equity. Applying for a loan is easy and you can see your oers in as little as ve minutes. 3. Create a budget. Because of the nature of remodels, things oen end up costing more than you might think. No matter how big or how small the project, you need to have a solid sense of what your all in budget number is. is should not only account for hard and so costs for things like labor, materials and designers, it should also account for contingency costs. Experts typically recommend budgeting an additional 15 to 20 percent for unexpected scenarios that might arise. A thoughtful budget will help keep your priorities in front of you and prevent you from spending more than you want. 4. Remember, this is an investment! Not all home renovations will pay off in the long term. Its important to consider cost vs. value before you start making changes, especially for homeowners looking to sell in the near future. If you plan on putting your house on the market sooner rather than later, be sure to keep track of the top home features to get the best return on your investment. 5. Work with a designer. This might sound like a luxury or an added expense, but in many cases, a designer could actually help save money by nding deals or providing suggestions for less expensive alternatives, such as using quartz or white concrete instead of marble. Above all, their expertise can help avoid costly mistakes that can often arise when people try to cut corners on their own. CONTACT BRIAN MCBRIDE EDITOR EMAIL BMCBRIDE@OSCEOLANEWSGAZETTE.COM Aer moving upward for two straight months, existinghome sales retreated in April on both a monthly and annualized basis, according to the National Association of Realtors. All four major regions saw no gain in sales activity last month. Total existing-home sales, which are completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, decreased 2.5 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.46 million in April from 5.60 million in March. With last months decline, sales are now 1.4 percent below a year ago and have fallen year-over-year for two straight months. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, said this springs staggeringly low inventory levels caused existing sales to slump in April. The root cause of the underperforming sales activity in much of the country so far this year continues to be the utter lack of available listings on the market to meet the strong demand for buying a home, he said. Realtors say the healthy economy and job market are keeping buyers in the market for now even as they face rising mortgage rates. However, inventory shortages are even worse than in recent years, and home prices keep climbing above what many home shoppers are able to aord. The median existinghome price for all housing types in April was $257,900, up 5.3 percent from April 2017 ($245,000). Marchs price increase marks the 74th straight month of year-overyear gains. Total housing inventory at the end of April increased 9.8 percent to 1.80 million existing homes available for sale, but is still 6.3 percent lower than a year ago (1.92 million) and has fallen yearover-year for 35 consecutive months. Unsold inventory is at a 4.0-month supply at the current sales pace (4.2 months a year ago). Properties typically stayed on the market for 26 days in April, which is down from 30 days in February and 29 days a year ago. Fiy-seven percent of homes sold in April were on the market for less than a month. What is available for sale is going under contract at a rapid pace, said Yun. Since NAR began tracking this data in May 2011, the median days a listing was on the market was at an all-time low in April, and the share of homes sold in less than a month was at an all-time high. According to Freddie Mac, the average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional, xed-rate mortgage increased for the seventh straight month to 4.47 percent in April (highest since 4.49 percent in September 2013) from 4.44 percent in March. e average commitment rate for all of 2017 was 3.99 percent. With mortgage rates and home prices continuing to climb, an increase in housing supply is absolutely crucial to keeping affordability conditions from further deterioration, said Yun. e current pace of price appreciation far above incomes is not sustainable in the long run. First-time buyers were 33 percent of sales in April (highest since last July), which is up from 30 percent last month but down from 34 percent a year ago. NARs 2017 Prole of Home Buyers and Sellers released in late 2017 revealed that the annual share of first-time buyers was 34 percent. Especially with mortgage rates going up in recent weeks, prospective buyers should visit with more than one lender to ensure they are getting the lowest rate possible, NAR President Elizabeth Mendenhall, a sixth-generation Realtor from Missouri and CEO of RE/MAX Boone Realty. Receiving a rate quote from multiple lenders could lead to considerable savings over the life of the loan. Ask a Realtor for a few recommendations of lenders to contact to get a quote. All-cash sales were 21 percent of transactions in April, which is up from 20 percent in March and unchanged from a year ago. Individual investors, who account for many cash sales, purchased 15 percent of homes in April (unchanged from last month and a year ago).

We dont always have the luxury of thumbing through our favorite cookbooks, marking appeal ing recipes with sticky notes for dinners sometime off in the future when we will somehow have time to saltcure a cod or dry-age a side of beef in our garage fridge. Sometimes, we just need to get dinner on the table. It doesnt have to be fancy, but it should still be tasty and nutritious. Enter the chicken leg and thigh! Often overlooked by the healthy cook due to its higher fat content, dark chicken meat is underappreciated. Yes, the dark meat has a few more grams of fat than the white meat of the breasts (a 3 1/2-ounce serving of breast meat has about 4 grams of fat, while the same amount of dark meat has just under 6 grams). And the higher cholesterol of the dark meat means the breast probably still should be in your rotation. But chicken legs and thighs are lus cious in texture and full of avor and protein (about 28 grams per serving). They also are much lower in saturated fat than most cuts of red meat, and they offer more iron per serving than chicken breasts. Perhaps most impor tant of all for the busy weeknight cook is that bone-in dark meat chicken is very forgiving in terms of cooking time. Which is to say, it is very hard to overcook dark chicken meat. So on weeknights when my hus band and I both have to work and one daughter has dance and the other three have soccer, lacrosse and more soccer, I totally appreciate the forgiveness offered by the dark meat. One of my favorite weeknight chicken leg and thigh strategies is to load them up in a large plastic bag in the morning, dump in some veggies and a quick marinade, then just toss the whole thing into the refrigerator to sit all day. After work, I dump the con tents of the bag into a baking dish and pop it into the oven while I change into something more comfortable (by which I mean sweats).

I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) A former employee of the Senate intelligence committee has been arrested on charges of lying to the FBI about contacts he had with multiple reporters, federal prosecutors said Thursday. James A. Wolfe, the long time director of security for the committee one of multiple congressional panels investigating potential ties between Russia and the Trump campaign was indicted on three false statement counts after prosecu tors say he misled agents about his relationships with reporters. Though Wolfe is not charged with disclosing classied information, prosecutors say he was in regular contact with multiple jour nalists who covered the com mittee, including meeting them at restaurants, in bars, private residences and in a Senate ofce building. He also maintained a yearslong personal relationship with one reporter, which prosecutors say he lied about until being confronted with a pho tograph of him and the jour nalist. Wolfe, 58, of Ellicott City, Maryland, is due in court Friday. It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer. Each false statement count is punishable by up to ve years in prison, though if convicted, Wolfe would al most certainly face only a fraction of that time. The criminal case arises from a December 2017 FBI interview with Wolfe in which he denied having rela tionships with journalists or discussing committee business with them. At one point, he was presented with a news article containing classied information and was asked, in a written questionnaire, if he had had contact with any of the piece's three au thors. He checked "no" even though records obtained by the government show that he had been in communication with one of them. In a separate instance, af ter one journalist published a story about a witness who'd been subpoenaed to appear before the committee, Wolfe wrote to say, "Good job!" and "I'm glad you got the scoop" The indictment was an nounced soon after The New York Times revealed that the Justice Department had secretly seized the phone records and emails of one of its journalists, Ali Watkins, as part of the same leak investigation involving Wolfe. The newspaper said Watkins was approached by the FBI about a three-year relation ship she had had with Wolfe when she worked at other publications. The newspaper also said that Watkins said that Wolfe was not a source of classied information for her during their relationship. In a statement Thursday night, Watkins' attorney, Mark MacDougall, said: "It's always disconcerting when a journalist's telephone records are obtained by the Justice Department through a grand jury subpoena or other legal process. Whether it was really necessary here will depend on the nature of the investigation and the scope of any charges." The prosecution comes amid a Trump administration crackdown on leaks of clas sied information. President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have decried such disclosures, with Sessions saying in August that the number of leak of criminal leak probes had more than tripled in the early months of the Trump admin istration. "The Attorney General has stated that investigations and prosecutions of unauthor ized disclosure of controlled information are a priority of the Department of Justice. The allegations in this indict ment are doubly troubling as the false statements concern the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive and conden tial information," Assistant Attorney General John De mers, the Justice Depart ment's top national security ofcial, said in a statement. The Obama administration had its own repeated tangles with journalists, including secretly subpoenaing phone records of Associated Press reporters and editors during a 2012 leak investigation into a story about a bomb plot. The Justice Department amended its media guidelines in 2015 to make it more difcult for prosecutors to subpoena journalists for their sources, though ofcials in the last year have said they are re viewing those policies. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr and the top Democrat on the committee, Sen. Mark Warner, said in a joint state ment that they were troubled by the charges. Wolfe had worked for the committee for roughly 30 years, and his position as security director meant that he had access to classied information provided to the panel by the executive branch. "While the charges do not appear to include anything related to the mishandling of classied information, the committee takes this matter extremely seriously," the senators said. "We were made aware of the investigation late last year, and have fully cooperated with the Federal Bureau of Investiga tion and the Department of Justice since then." CINCINNATI (AP) Do you have to vote even if you don't want to? Not do ing so could put you on the path to losing your vote in some states. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule soon on a lawsuit led against Ohio's secretary of state over the practice of agging regis tered voters after they've missed one federal general election. They get a mailed notication asking them to conrm their address. If they don't respond and don't vote during the next two federal general elections, they could be purged. In oral arguments Jan. 10, an attorney for civil rights groups said Americans not only have the right to vote, they have the right not to without worry about los ing their registration. Attorneys for Ohio and the United States President Donald Trump's administration reversed the position by former President Barack Obama by siding with Ohio contended they are only trying to ensure the integri ty of voting rolls. Ohio Sec retary of State Jon Husted has said repeatedly that the state wants to "make it easy to vote and hard to cheat." Some questions and answers about the case:WHY SHOULD I CARE IF I DON'T LIVE IN OHIO?Attorneys told the high court that at least six other states Georgia, Montana, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn sylvania and West Virginia have similar practices. A ruling upholding Ohio's practices could lead to more states adopting similar procedures. Those in favor say states are mandated to maintain up-to-date voter lists. Those opposed to Ohio's system see it as among moves by Republican ofcials in dif ferent states to add require ments such as presenting photo IDs or proving citizenship that tend to reduce voting among minorities and low-income people more likely to vote Demo cratic. "All of us should be con cerned if you have people who are running the elec toral system who instead of trying to promote as much democracy as possible are trying to distort it in subtle ways to gain political ad vantage," said attorney Paul Smith, of Washington, who argued against Ohio's law before the justices in Janu ary. Some states allow sameday voter registration and voting, but most don't.BUT DON'T WE WANT TO BE SURE ONLY LEGAL VOTERS VOTE?State election ofcials and voting experts agree that having accurate regis tration lists is important to running smooth, fair elec tions. Removing people who have died, moved out of state, or are in prison for felony crimes helps reduce opportunities for fraud. "Properly done, efforts to clean up voter rolls are important for election integrity and efciency. Done carelessly or hastily, such efforts are prone to error, the effects of which are borne by voters who may show up to vote only to nd their names missing from the list," Jonathan Brater, counsel for the Brennan Center for Justice's Democ racy Program at New York University, wrote in a report earlier this year. A 2013 Supreme Court decision cleared the way for local election ofcials in some parts of the country to make changes to election procedures without having to submit those plans for Justice Department review. Civil rights groups say that loss of protections has led to instances like one in 2015 in Hancock County, Geor gia, where some black resi dents received summonses requiring them to appear in person to prove their resi dence or be removed from voting rolls. President Trump's unsupported assertions that mil lions voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election have added to uneasiness among voting rights groups about what steps states might take to add voter re quirements. Trump hoped to prove widespread fraud when he appointed a com mission to study the issue, but abandoned it as states refused to cooperate with expansive demands for per sonal voter data. IS IT REALLY THAT BIG OF A DEAL IN OHIO? The secretary of state's ofce said Ohio has fol lowed similar procedures for seeking voter conrma tion of their status under both Democratic and Re publican administrations since 1994. Ohio records show more than 3 million notices seek ing voter conrmation of their addresses beginning in 2011, when Husted, who is Republican, took ofce as secretary of state. Numbers under his Democratic predecessor weren't available. Smith told the justices that some 70 percent of those receiving mailed notica tions didn't respond, often throwing them away without reading. The numbers of voters listed as stricken or ready for striking Ohio halted purges after the federal lawsuit was led two years ago were in the tens of thousands in urban counties such as Cuyahoga, Franklin, Hamilton and Lucas, where Democrats tend to do better than in much of the rest of the state. However, it's not clear how many voters lost their registrations even though they should have remained eligible. Associated Press calls to more than 100 people listed as removed in ve mostly urban counties found that in the vast major ity of cases, the people were no longer at the address where they lived when reg istered. Some voters in the Ohio case say they were given provisional ballots, which are subject to verication, but believe their ballots weren't counted. Miami University political scientist Christopher Kelley said in a closely di vided swing state like Ohio, anything done to "put your nger on the scales" can be decisive. He pointed to the 2004 election, when voting under a Republican secre tary of state was plagued by long lines, faulty equipment and other problems in Ohio. President George W. Bush won by some 118,000 votes to carry Ohio and clinch his re-election, four years after he won election with a dis puted 537-vote margin in Florida.WHAT DO AFFECTED VOTERS SAY?Joseph Helle, an Army veteran, was removed from the rolls while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. He called voting a funda mental right that ensures all of the other ones protected by the Constitution. "It affects me and it af fects any veteran," said Helle, now the mayor of Oak Harbor, Ohio. "But it also affects anyone who has never served. It affects everyone equally. It takes away our voice ... I was in credibly emotional when I was taken off the rolls ..." Helle, who attended the Supreme Court arguments in January, said that not vot ing also is a right of free ex pression; it can be a way to express dissatisfaction with the candidates or the way the system is working. Lisa Keil, of Toledo, found out she had been re moved from the list of eli gible voters when she tried to cast a ballot in a special mayoral election in 2015. "It made me look really stupid. I felt humiliated," she said. She remembered that she tried to vote in 2012, but she showed up to nd long lines and was worried she wouldn't have enough time to get to her job, so she skipped voting. Keil said she never knew that could lead to her being removed from the voting rolls. She was separated from her hus band for a short time and doesn't recall getting a no tication from the secretary of state. Jennifer Arlinghaus, of Cincinnati, was listed in Hamilton County records as subject to removal for not voting or responding.

Page E4, THE CIVIL WAR COURIER THE CIVIL WAR COURIER For the history bu or the reenactment hobbyist Only $3.00New issue the rst of every month. Now available at the lobby of the Osceola News-Gazette.108 Church Street, Kissimmee Fl 34771407-846-7600 Two members of a secretive evangelical church in North Carolina were charged Thursday with conspiracy to commit wire fraud in an alleged unemployment benets scheme that former congregants have said was meant to keep money coming into the sect. Marion Kent Covington, 63, and Diane Mary McK inny, 65, both of Ruther fordton, North Carolina, were indicted in U.S. Dis trict Court in Asheville. Prosecutors say Covington and McKinny decided to lay off employees at Covington's business so they could collect unemployment benets in 2008 when the company was struggling nancially. But the employees continued to work at the company, Diverse Corporate Technologies. They later put the scheme into place at Cov ington's other business, Integrity Marble & Granite. Covington then put in place a variation of the scheme at Sky Catcher Communications, Inc., a company he managed, prosecutors say. The scheme resulted in more than $250,000 in fraudulent claims between November 2008 and March 2013, according to court records. The charges carry a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a $1 million ne. Prosecutors are seeking the forfeiture of at least $309,660. Both defendants will be ar raigned on June 18. Most employees were members of the Word of Faith Fellowship in Spin dale, North Carolina. Pros ecutors say Covington used his leadership position in the church to force them to comply. No one responded to telephone messages left for Covington's attorney, Stephen Cash, and McKinny's lawyer, Charles McKeller, Thursday afternoon. As part of an ongoing investigation into claims of physical and emotional abuse at the Word of Faith Fellowship Church in Spindale, North Carolina, The Associated Press re ported in September that authorities were looking into unemployment-claims practices of congregants and their businesses. Kent Covington spent eight months in a North Carolina prison in 1974 for breaking and entering, and larceny, and later joined the church. His wife, Brooke Covington, is one of the most trusted condants of church founder Jane Whal ey, who members consider a prophet. By September 2009, sev eral other businesses run by members of the church were also struggling nancially so Covington and McKinny "promoted the fraud" to others, according to the indictment. At least ve businesses implemented the scheme, the indictment said. Two other ministers, Dr. Jerry Gross, 72, and his son, Jason Lee Gross, 51, pleaded guilty on May 25 to wire fraud related to unemployment benets at a podiatry clinic in Forest City, North Carolina. As part of his plea deal, Jerry Gross agreed to cooperate with the government. In September, 11 for mer congregants told the AP that dozens of church members led bogus un employment claims between 2008 and 2013 at the direction of church leaders. Former members said Whaley promoted the scheme as "God's plan" to help the businesses survive the economic downturn and keep money coming into the church. The unemployment allegations were uncovered as part of the AP's ongo ing investigation into Word of Faith, which had about 750 congregants in rural North Carolina and a total of nearly 2,000 members in its branches in Brazil and Ghana and its afliations in other countries. In February 2017, the AP cited 43 former members who said congregants were regularly punched and choked in an effort to beat out devils. The AP also re vealed how, over the course of two decades, followers were ordered by church leaders to lie to authori ties investigating reports of abuse. AP later outlined how the church created a pipe line of young laborers from its two Brazilian congrega tions who say they were brought to the U.S. and forced to work for little or no pay at businesses owned by church leaders. Those stories led to investigations in the U.S. and Brazil. In March, Brazilian labor prosecutors led suit to close one of the churches and its school in Sao Paulo, saying its leaders "reduced people to a condition anal ogous to slavery."

It was the reality star and makeup mogul who brought the 63-year-old Johnson rst word of her freedom after more than two decades in federal prison on 1996 drug convictions related to a Memphis-based cocaine traf cking operation. Johnson wasn't eligible for parole, but the TV star met with the former reality TV boss, President Donald Trump, in the Oval Ofce after learning of Johnson's plight online. Soon after, Trump commuted her sen tence and the tears owed. "Telling her for the rst time and hearing her screams while crying together is a moment I will never forget," offered Kardashian West, long a social media inuencer with a legion of dedicated supporters. Kardashian West has expanded her reach in ways some might have thought unlikely. Johnson's release Wednesday came two days after Kardashian West ac cepted an inuencer award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America before a star-studded crowd, jok ing she considered the honor ironic "since I'm naked most of the time." With the help of her at torney, Shawn Holley, and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, Kardashian West has been hailed as a hero for pushing hard in Johnson's case. There seems to be no downside, for herself or the president, observers said. Kardashian West, they said, could have easily done noth ing. "I think that it's great she's using her inuence in this way," said Ashley Edwards, senior news and politics editor at the millennial-focused lifestyle site Renery29. "I'm not sure if there's anything she can't do with the amount of clout she has." In a way, Edwards noted, the 37-year-old's move to ac tion in Johnson's case could be seen as a natural follow up to troubles in her own life. "She said after her robbery (in a Paris hotel) she realized that material things don't mean as much to her as they used to. She can go to the store and spend $40,000 on a necklace or a shirt and it doesn't really fulll her in the same way that it used to. And I think now that she's the mother of three, she's older now and realizes there's more to life than material things and she is using her celebrity for a bigger purpose." For Kardashian West and Trump, was the alliance a risk? "She's looking at the bigger picture. She had to work with the administration even if she doesn't agree with everything he stands for," Edwards said. "It is a risk for her on one level since a lot of her fans are liberal, a lot of people do not like Donald Trump, but I think a lot of those people now realize we can't just say that on issues like this." Holley has known Kar dashian West since she was a child; the star's late father, Robert Kardashian, was a lawyer who was on O.J. Simpson's successful defense team in his double murder case, as was Holley. Holley said the Johnson release is just the beginning for her famous client, who paid to retain lawyers in the effort. The two spent about 20 minutes with Trump last week before he took action to free Johnson, but they had put wheels in motion months ago, back in October. "There were stops and starts," Holley said of the lead up to her and Kardashi an West's sit down with the president. "There were times we didn't want to get too pushy but didn't want to go off the radar. I have no illu sions about the fact that we would not have been there without her star power. She has always been interested in criminal justice. She and I have talked many times over the years about her interest in criminal justice as a whole." Kardashian West "denitely" will continue to work on criminal justice issues, Hol ley said. People magazine's deputy editor, DJ Heyman, said Kardashian West's success marked a shining "singular achievement" and the best use of her inuence in the face of massive prison re form challenges in the United States, but she's certainly not the rst celebrity to lend their name, money and clout. "Look, I think it is amaz ing and laudable that she was able to achieve this in this case and I think it says a lot about power of celebrity at this moment in time that she, a reality star, an inuencer, obviously appeals to a reality star president who obviously felt great about meeting with her and acted, it would seem to be, in a very positive way," he said. "I applaud her efforts," Heyman said. "(But) there are other celebrities like John Legend, who are really in tensely, on an almost cellular level, working on criminal justice reform and prosecu torial reform in this country and who take it very seri ously. Since they're friendly, I hope that she works with him and others to really ad dress what I think is a much bigger issue." Heyman acknowledged that every inuencer has lim itations, even the force that is Kim Kardashian West. "I don't necessarily think that if she were to come to the president next week with another case that she would necessarily get the same hearing. Maybe she would. And also, good for all those people who are less famous working on these issues." Among the less famous: Vanessa Potkin, director of post-conviction relief for the Innocence Project, a non prot dedicated to exonerating the wrongly convicted. "It was so great to hear, but it shouldn't have to take Kim Kardashian getting involved to get justice in this coun try," she said. "The fact that it took the involvement of Kim Kardashian to obtain (John son's) release demonstrates the extent of the problem and how, especially after one is convicted it takes Herculean efforts to obtain justice."

Saturday, June 9, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E5 ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia (AP) Russia plans to deploy thousands of Cossacks to guard the World Cup, but the traditional paramilitary groups face criticism for their stri dent nationalism and at tacks on protesters. During a parade Tuesday under the hot sun of south ern Russia, a politician and a police chief lectured assembled Cossacks on how to "keep order" and remain polite with foreign fans, before a priest sprinkled their ranks with holy water. They'll patrol alongside police during the World Cup in Rostov-on-Don, two Cossacks to each cop. "They are taught in the art of war from childhood, they obey their elders and serve the motherland," Cossack elder Igor Barannikov told The Associated Press. During the World Cup, "we will help in any way to prevent any attempt at destabilization." Authorities hope Cos sacks will protect fans while adding local color. Some will wear traditional fur hats, and a group of stunt riders will perform on horseback. Cossacks generally can't arrest or ne people, but some are notorious for using exces sive force. Men in Cossack uni forms used their sts and traditional whips to at tack Russians protesting against President Vladimir Putin last month in central Moscow. Police did little to stop them. At the Sochi Olympics in 2014, Cos sacks whipped members of the punk protest group Pussy Riot. Barannikov said his Cos sacks would be tolerant of outsiders. "We are happy to welcome everyone here re gardless of their ethnic background and faith, re gardless of their gender," he said. "We are happy for all our guests and we ask them to respect and keep to the traditions of the region and the country they are visiting." Cossacks are often hos tile to LGBT rights. Ba rannikov told Radio Free Europe this week that his Cossacks would report same-sex couples to police if they saw them kissing during the World Cup. His group didn't respond to AP requests to clarify the comments. Cossacks were historically a mix between colo nists and a military caste on the Russian Empire's south and eastern frontiers. After decades of Soviet persecu tion, groups claiming to be Cossacks have multiplied under Putin, often with government funding. While some Cossacks trace their ancestry back to the paramilitary groups broken up by the Soviet Union after the Russian Civil War, others have more tenuous links. Recent years have seen government-backed "Cossack" groups spring up in World Cup host cities like Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kaliningrad on the Baltic Sea, far from traditional heartlands. Some have gone to ght with Russiabacked rebels in eastern Ukraine. Cossacks' legal status varies. Some groups are ofcial police auxiliaries but others are essentially costumed social clubs. There's little oversight for Cossacks who work with police if they face accusa tions of using excessive force, typically against mi grants or opposition activ ists. Modern Cossacks' image as Christian warriors ght ing for a strong Russian state isn't always backed up by history. Cossacks crushed protests against the czars in the early 20th century, but led several earlier re bellions when they felt their autonomy was under threat. They sometimes allied with Muslim ethnic groups against czarist forces, while many Kalmyks members of an ethnically Mongolian minority who mostly follow Buddhism lived as Cossacks and were widely accepted as such until the 20th century. In Rostov-on-Don, Cossack ofcial Sergei Stro gonov said his patrolmen are learning English phras es to talk with fans. "We're preparing for it so we don't end up hu miliating ourselves. We're learning standard phrases of greeting so that the Cos sack patrol can sort things out and provide the neces sary help to any foreign citizen," he said. "We want our foreign guests to have only positive memories of us both as a people and as patriots of our country, and as people who love order." GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) Palestinians burned tires and Israeli troops red heavy volleys of tear gas Friday to push back large Gaza crowds from the area of the fence separating the blockaded territory from Israel. It was the latest in a series of protests against the de cade-long blockade of Gaza by Israel and Egypt. Fri day's march also coincided with the annual "Jerusalem Day," instituted by Iran to protest against Israeli rule of the holy city. Israel and Iran have been arch enemies since Tehran's 1979 Islamic Revolution. In the capitals of Iran and Iraq, thousands of Shiite Muslims marched in Jeru salem Day protests, some chanting "Death to Israel" or burning Israeli ags and efgies of President Donald Trump. Friday's Gaza protest was accompanied by concerns about renewed bloodshed. At least 115 Palestinian protesters, the vast majority unarmed, have been killed and close to 3,800 have been wounded by Israeli army re since the marches began in late March. After Muslim noon prayers Friday, thousands of Gaza residents began streaming toward ve pro test tent camps that had been erected more than two months ago, each several hundred meters (yards) from Gaza's perimeter fence. From there, smaller groups walked closer to the fence. In a camp east of Gaza City, activists burned tires, releasing thick black smoke into the air. Israeli troops red heavy tear gas vol leys, including from drones, sending protesters running for cover. One man with a bullhorn shouted, "America is the biggest evil." The mass protests have been aimed at a border blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt in 2007, after the Islamic militant group Hamas overran the terri tory. The marchers have also pressed demands for a "right of return" for the descendants of Palestinian refugees to ancestral homes in what is now Israel. More than 700,000 Pales tinians were expelled or ed in the 1948 Mideast war over Israel's creation. Twothirds of Gaza's 2 million residents are descendants of refugees. Protester Fadi Saleh said the frequent marches have helped revive sympathies in the Arab world for the Palestinians, but that more could be done. "We need real Arab support and soli darity with our cause," said Saleh, a student of Arabic literature who wore a medical mask against the tear gas. In previous border protests, activists have also sent kites with incendiary materials attached toward Israel with the aim of set ting elds there on re. Others have thrown re bombs or tried to damage the fence. Israeli soldiers, including snipers perched behind earthen berms, have red live bullets and tear gas. Israel's use of potentially lethal force against the protesters has drawn inter national criticism. Rights groups have said Israel's open-re rules are unlaw ful. Israel has accused Hamas of trying to carry out attacks and damage the fence under the guise of the protests. Hamas leaders have threat ened possible mass border breaches, raising concerns in Israel that communities near Gaza might be at risk. The protests have largely been organized by Hamas and to some extent by the smaller Islamic Jihad militant group. Both have re ceived political and nan cial backing from Iran, but also pursue their own agen das. Growing despair in Gaza over blockade-linked hardships, including daily hours-long power cuts and rising poverty, have driven turnout. Israel and Egypt argue that they must maintain the blockade to contain Hamas and other militant groups, which have built weapons arsenals over the years, in cluding short-range rockets. Israel and Hamas have fought three cross-border wars since 2008. The Jerusalem Day pro tests are being held each year on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. The day is known in Arabic as "Al Quds Day," a reference to the city's historic Arabic name. Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war and annexed it to its capital, a move not recog nized by most of the inter national community. Israel's current government has said it will not accept a partition of the city as part of a peace deal with the Palestinians. The eastern sector houses major shrines revered by Muslims, Christians and Jews. The Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in east Jerusa lem, the third holiest site in Islam, is built on the spot where tradition says the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven. The compound sits on the ruins of biblical temples and is revered by Jews as the holiest site of their religion. In Iran's capital of Teh ran, thousands joined a Jerusalem Day march on Friday, chanting "Death to Israel" and burning a Trump efgy. In Iraq, thousands of Iranbacked Shiite militiamen in uniform marched through the streets of the capital of Baghdad on Friday, setting an Israeli ag on re and carrying posters of the late Iranian leader Ayatol lah Ruhollah Khomeini and Supreme Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

She was seeking help during the last ve years, "seeing a doctor on a regular basis and taking medication for both depression and anxiety," Andy Spade said in a statement re leased on Wednesday. He said there were "personal demons she was battling." The designer was found hanged in the bedroom of her Park Avenue apartment on Tuesday. She was 55 years old and had a 13-year-old daughter. Spade was working as an accessories editor at Mademoiselle magazine when she launched her company with her husband in their apartment in 1993. Andy Spade, the brother of comedian David Spade, said she "sounded happy" the night before her suicide. "There was no indication and no warning that she would do this," he said. "It was a complete shock." He said he and his wife had been living separately for the past 10 months but saw each other or spoke every day. He said they were not legally separated and never discussed di vorce. Coach, now known as Tapestry, bought the Kate Spade brand last year for $2.4 billion.

Around the Industry BY MESFIN FEKADU AP Music WriterNEW YORK (AP) If you see Imagine Dragons lead singer Dan Reynolds out in public and you think he's ignoring you he isn't, he's just trying to stay ready for his live concerts. "I'll wear a sign typically that says 'vocal silence,' then like a frowny face, and I'll put that on anytime that I have a day off," said the 30-year-old rocker, whose band kicked off the second leg of its Evolve World Tour this week. "Two-hour shows that many days a week is just intense. Intense." The Grammy-winning quartet is known for their powerful live perfor mances, with Reynolds working the entire stage with full energy during hits like "Radioactive" and "Believer." "It's just like being a professional athlete, except for your voice. You have to take it that seriously at this level. I don't know how artists maintain (themselves) on the road and live an unhealthy lifestyle. Actually they don't. Those are the bands I think that break up, they cancel a lot of show dates, or they just sound really bad live," he said. "I don't want any of those options." He said his band has "cancelled, I think, one show in our career and we've played thousands and thousands of shows." Reynolds breaks down what he does to stay healthy and t on the road and discusses how tour life has changed since Imagine Dragons started per forming shows together a decade ago.IT'S NOT FOOD, IT'S FUELReynolds could easily afford a per sonal chef while on the road but it would be a waste of money: His diet is super basic and doesn't change. "I'm such a creature of habit. When I'm on the road I really become so boring. ... Food is just fuel for me. It's not like an enjoyable thing," he said. "When I'm on the road it turns into, 'What is the cleanest source of energy for me? I eat really the same thing ev ery day," he said. He'll have oatmeal and eggs for breakfast, while lunch and dinner could range from chicken, sh or lamb, along with brown rice, vegetables or sweet potatoes. He cuts out all sugar, bread and dairy. Reynolds says he'll eat every 90 minutes until about three-to-four hours before he hits the stage because he prefers to sing on an empty stomach. "That gives me a lot more to pull from, so you're not burping onstage and you're not having any acid reux or anything," he said. "I don't eat when I get off stage ei ther," he added. "I try to go to bed right after."EXERCISING THE DEMONSNow a personal trainer is something Reynolds needs on the road. Part of the reason for that is because the singer has ankylosing spondylitis, a form of arthritis that causes inam mation of the spinal joints that can lead to severe, chronic pain and discomfort. "One of the best ways to thwart it off without taking immunosuppressants is to really get your blood ow ing through your whole body and all your joints every single day. You have to be really active, long story short," he explained. "A two-hour show every night, it's not enough for me to keep the inam mation at bay. Really what does that is a lot of power lifting, a lot of Olympic lifting, so that's really what I'm focused on with my trainer," he added. Reynolds says he also works out dai ly "for my mental sanity; just because it keeps me happy."NO, NO, NO TO H2OWhen Beyonce slayed at Coach ella this year, some noted that she performed for nearly two hours with a single drop of water. But Reynolds said that may have been on purpose. "Even though that might sound like ... she couldn't nd time for it, it also very well may be a conscious choice just as a singer," he said. "For instance, if you're drinking too much water, your diaphragm, it makes it harder to sing. It's kind of an old wives' tale that you need to drink water when you're sing ing to sound better." However, before shows Reynolds says he drinks lots of water about a gallon a day which helps him when he's not taking water breaks during his shows. Keeping his voice strong is his prior ity. "You have to really maintain a strict regimen," he said. "Especially when what you're singing requires a lot of power and air, which Imagine Dragons songs denitely do."PIMP MY RIDEWhen Imagine Dragons rst hit the road as a band, they didn't even have a tour bus they used their own car. That's why, now, it's OK for the group to splurge on a fancy tour bus. "When we started it was our own car, a Subaru and then upgraded we bought an airport shuttle vehicle. We built a little bed into the back of that and we'd all take turns sleeping in that," he recalled. "And that upgraded to a sprinter van, and then from there it went to a real (expletive) bus ... just really bumpy, the bare minimum, you have a couple bunks and that's it," he added. He says now "we try to get the topclass tour bus because that's your home so you try to make the best of it." Their current bus is decked out with a kitchenette and a living room, though Reynolds said "you spend such little time in a tour bus." "Every day we try to get out of the tour bus as quick as we can to hit the town to kind of see what's around you, and breathe a little fresh air," he said. Compared to ying, the bus is con venient when Reynolds' three young daughters join him on the road. "They go to bed at like 6:30 p.m. Sometimes my ve-year-old goes to bed at 9 p.m., so she'll watch part of the show," he said.Taking on the World How to prep for a world tour, according to Imagine Dragons APThe American pop rock band Imagine Dragons with lead gui tarist Wayne Sermon, percussionist and lead vocalist Dan Reynolds and drummer Daniel Platzman performs at the Xfinity Center, Wednesday, June 6, 2018, in Mansfield, Mass.

Saturday, June 9, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E7 WASHINGTON (AP) In a break with Presi dent Donald Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan said Wednesday that he agrees there is no evidence that the FBI planted a "spy" in Trump's 2016 presidential campaign in an effort to hurt his chances at the polls. He also issued a careful warning about Trump's re cent assertion that he has the authority to pardon himself. "I don't know the tech nical answer to that ques tion, but I think obviously the answer is he shouldn't and no one is above the law," Ryan told reporters on Wednesday. The comments come after Trump insisted in a series of angry tweets last month that the agen cy planted a spy "to help Crooked Hillary win," re ferring to his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton. There is a growing sense that Republicans are uncomfortable with those statements. Ryan, R-Wisc., is one of three congressional Republicans who have now contradicted Trump on the spying matter, including House Oversight and Govern ment Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and Senate Intel ligence Committee Chair man Richard Burr, R-N.C. Ryan, Gowdy and Burr all attended classied briengs on the matter late last month, following reports that the FBI used an informant in its Russian election meddling investigation to speak to mem bers of the Trump cam paign who had possible connections to Russia. The Department of Justice held two briengs on Trump's orders after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., had asked for documents concerning the informant. Trump said it was "starting to look like one of the biggest political scandals in U.S. history." Gowdy said afterward that the FBI was doing its duty. "I am even more con vinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got," Gowdy said on Fox News last week. "And that it has nothing to do with Donald Trump." Gowdy added, in a sepa rate interview on CBS, that such informants are used all the time and "the FBI, if they were at the table this morning, they would tell you that Russia was the target and Rus sia's intentions toward our country were the target." Ryan told reporters on Wednesday that he thinks Gowdy's "initial assess ment is accurate," and he has seen "no evidence to the contrary" of what Gowdy said. Hours after Ryan's com ments, Burr told The Associated Press that he, too, agreed with Gowdy. "I have no disagreement with the description Trey Gowdy gave," Burr said. Democrats made similar comments immediately after the brieng. In a joint statement, the four Demo crats who attended said "there is no evidence to support any allegation that the FBI or any intelligence agency placed a 'spy' in the Trump Campaign, or otherwise failed to follow appropriate procedures and protocols." That statement was is sued by Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, and the top Democrats on the Senate and House intelligence panels, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia and Rep. Adam Schiff of California. Despite the statements, some House lawmakers may continue to pursue the issue. Ryan said Congress has "more digging to do" and that he wished they had gotten the infor mation earlier. Nunes has said the committee is still waiting for documents, and Ryan backed him on that Wednesday. "We have some more documents to review, we still have some unan swered questions," Ryan said. Burr, however, appeared ready to move on, saying the brieng he attended "sufciently covered everything to do with this right now." The Justice Department said late Wednesday it would extend an offer to top congressional lawmakers to brief them further and to provide another opportunity for the law makers to review "certain supporting documents" made available during the May 24 brieng. In a state ment, the Justice Department said the department and the FBI "are prepared to brief members on cer tain questions specically raised by the Speaker and other members." The de partment said the brieng could take place Monday or Tuesday On the pardon issue, Ryan joined Senate Major ity Leader Mitch McCon nell in sending a subtle message to Trump. Trump recently said he has the "absolute right" to pardon himself if it were necessary which Trump says it won't be, because "I have done nothing wrong." McConnell said Tuesday the question of whether Trump has legal authority to pardon himself is "an academic discussion," but Trump "obviously knows that would not be some thing that he would or should do." CITIZEN TRIBUNE PoliticsThursday, June 7, 2018 EEE-3 APIn this May 10, 2018 photo, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wis., meets with reporters during his weekly news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. Ryan contradicts Trumps claim that the FBI planted a spyTrump rarely conducts business as usual with foreign leadersWASHINGTON (AP) He hectored Mexico's leader over border wall funding. Lobbed statis tics at the Canadian leader without checking his facts. Cajoled the British prime minister to crack down on protesters. Had a tte-tte with Russia's head of state on a whim. Bonded with France's president over military parades. President Donald Trump rarely conducts businessas-usual diplomacy when he interacts with world leaders. Heading into his expected summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump has a record on the international stage that suggests he'll seek to charm the dictator and look for an agreement that he can pitch as a win even if it's more a triumph of appearance than policy. But never bet against the possibility that he'll just walk away. Trump's unpredictable negotiating style has been on full display in the runup to the historic June 12 summit in Singapore. After months spent deriding Kim as "Little Rocket Man" and boast ing about the size of his nuclear button, Trump has shifted tone in recent months, suggesting that a friendship was possible and agreeing to an unprec edented meeting. Even when Trump temporarily backed out of the talks, he spoke of a "won derful dialogue" building between the two leaders. And now that the talks are back on, Trump is shelv ing the "maximum pres sure" phrase he coined to describe his sanctions against the North. As he approaches the Kim talks, Trump's avowed "America First" attitude has come increas ingly to resemble "Amer ica alone." His eagerness for a deal has unsettled Japan and South Korea. Elsewhere, talk of tearing up trade agreements and his imposition of tariffs to protect the American steel and aluminum industries have angered longtime partners. An overriding theme of the president's rst 18 months of foreign policy has been his willingness to go it alone as he seeks to fulll his nationalistic campaign promises even if it unsettles allies. "He just doesn't care as much," said Ian Bremmer, a foreign affairs colum nist and president of the Eurasia Group. "In terms of postwar American his tory, no one has done more damage to American alliances than Trump has. All you have to do is talk to American allies." Critics have labeled Trump an inconsistent force, prone to publicly hectoring friendly part ners, embracing foes and resistant to much advice or counsel. His loyal sup porters see it all as a mark of Trump's willingness to hold rm to his promised policies even when the conversations get awkward. After nearly two years spent trying to understand the political novice, many world leaders are still struggling with how to en gage Trump, though they have learned he is not eas ily moved from fullling the policies he promised to his most loyal voters dur ing the campaign. Foreign diplomats in the U.S. and leaders overseas have gone to great lengths to charm Trump, a rookie president schooled in New York negotiating who promised a major shift in foreign policy. Those efforts have included getting their messages on to Trump-friendly TV shows like "Fox and Friends" and rolling out the red carpet when Trump visits. In France, President Emmanuel Macron invited Trump to view a spectacular military parade on Bastille Day, one that inspired Trump to order up his own parade in Washington. In Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe fted Trump with golf and Americanstyle hamburgers. But those overtures haven't always yielded policy results. Macron tried unsuccess fully to keep Trump in the Paris climate accord and the Iran nuclear deal. Abe wanted Trump to stay in the Trans-Pacic Partner ship trade deal and has en couraged a more skeptical approach to Kim's over tures. White House ofcials privately assess that the world leaders most so licitous toward Trump are rarely the most effective. Germany's Angela Merkel and Britain's Theresa May, for instance, have both largely refused to play into Trump's love for pageant ry and have been candid about their disagreements with the president. Indeed, even those who were inclined to buddy up to Trump appear to be changing course. During an April summit at Trump's Mar-a-Lago, Abe and Trump engaged in what U.S. ofcials described as a heated economic dia logue over Trump's tariffs. Just last week, Trump imposed new tariffs on the European Union, Canada and Mexico, despite furi ous lobbying from those countries. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said: "These tariffs are an affront to the long-standing security partnership between Canada and the United States." Trump, meanwhile, has focused much of his atten tion on adversaries rather than allies, seeking to sit down with Kim and rou tinely praising Russian President Vladimir Putin. Fixated on his celeb rity and tough-guy image, Trump cares deeply about the pageantry of his inter actions with world leaders and also values what he considers respectful treatment. That tone was set on Trump's rst international trip, when Saudi Arabia gave him an opulent welcome. More than a dozen horses anked the presidential limousine as Trump was slowly driven to the Royal Court in Ri yadh. Trumpets played and soldiers stood at attention as the president arrived. Trump declared the spectacle "very impressive." A key theme in Trump's calls with foreign leaders has been his need for re spect. He badgered Mexico's president over funding for his border wall, which he views as a face-saving fulllment of a campaign promise. He nudged the British prime minister to do something about potential protests should he visit the U.K., a potential embarrassment for a diplo matic visit. Trump rarely sweats the small stuff. When it comes to poli cy meetings and delicate negotiations, Trump is more likely to follow his instincts than stick to a scripted plan. His admis sion of stretching his in formation about trade in a call with Trudeau was in keeping with a seat-of-thepants style that can leave advisers nervous. Advisers say Trump avoids spending extensive time in preparation. He grew frustrated with for mer national security adviser H.R. McMaster and his brieng style, though he is said to listen more to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Still, Trump is not a fan of detailed briefing books, preferring lim ited preparation and in stinct. Those close to Trump say he is approaching the Kim meeting the same way.

Page E8, HONOLULU (AP) Ha waii's Kilauea volcano may be disrupting life in paradise with its bursts of ash and bright-orange lava, but it also has scientists wide-eyed, eager to advance what's known about volcanoes. The good news is: Volcanoes reveal secrets when they're rumbling, which means Kilauea is producing a bonanza of information. While scientists monitored Big Island lava ows in 1955 and 1960, equipment then was far less sophisticated. Given new technology, they can now gather and study an unprecedented volume of data. "Geophysical monitoring techniques that have come online in the last 20 years have now been deployed at Kilauea," said George Ber gantz, professor of earth and space sciences at the Univer sity of Washington. "We have this remarkable opportunity ... to see many more scales of behavior both preceding and during this current volcanic crisis." Starting May 3, Kilauea has fountained lava and ung ash and rocks from its sum mit, destroying hundreds of homes, closing key highways and prompting health warn ings. Kilauea is one of ve volcanos that form the Big Is land, and is a "shield" volcano built up over time as lava ows layer on top of layer. Technically speaking, it has been continuously erupt ing since 1983. But the recent combination of earthquakes shaking the ground, steamdriven explosions at the top, and lava creeping into a new area some 12 miles (20 ki lometers) from the summit represents a departure from its behavior over the past 35 years, said Erik Klemetti, a volcanologist at Ohio's Deni son University. What's happening now is a bit more like the Kilauea of nearly a century ago. In 1924, steam explosions at the summit lasted for more than two weeks. Scientists are looking into what caused the change and whether this shift in the volca no's magma plumbing system will become the new normal. Radar allows researchers to measure the height of ash plumes shooting from the summit, even when they oc cur at night. Plume heights are an effect of how much heat energy is released and the explosion's intensity. "It's one of the key factors that dictates how far ash will be dispersed," said Charles Mandeville, volcano hazards coordinator for the U.S. Geo logical Survey. The other is where the winds are blowing. Such knowledge is useful in alerting the public. Scientists can also moni tor where gas is emerging, as well as determine its compo sition and volume. They can even measure the subtle rise and fall of the ground over a broad area and time down to seconds which suggests when and where magma is pooling underground. Discovering variations or correlations between past and present activity provides more clues on what's happening. It also helps scientists understand past lava ows, anticipate what could occur next, and pinpoint signs or patterns before an eruption. "You're sort of zeroing in on ner and ner levels of detail into how the volcano works," said Michael Poland, a U.S. Geological Survey volcanologist. "The more stuff you put on the volcano to make measurements, the more you realize there's stuff going on that you never knew." Better technology has also meant U.S. Geological Survey scientists have been able to accurately forecast Kilauea's behavior as it sput ters over Puna, the island's most affected district. "They've been spot on," said Janine Krippner, a vol canologist at Concord Uni versity in West Virginia. "It's incredible they're looking at things happening below the surface, using the monitoring equipment that they have, the knowledge they have of past eruptions, and have been able to get people to not be in a deadly area." This is unfortunately not always possible, as nature can be unpredictable. On June 3, Guatemala's Volcano of Fire sent a mixture of hot gas, rock and other material racing down its slopes and inundat ing the valley, killing nearly 100 people. Krippner compared the Guatemala eruption to open ing a can of soda after shak ing it vigorously. Volcanic gas underneath created bubbles that expanded, increasing pressure that blew magma apart when it reached the surface, spewing cooled lava rocks ranging from the size of sand grains to boulders. Explosions can be big ger, or occur differently, than expected, and that presents a learning opportunity for scientists, who work on computer models to map out areas that may be at higher risk in the future. "Looking at the footage afterward, we can start to tease out how these things actually work," Krippner said, as it's often too dangerous for experts to physically get close to an eruption. Volcanic eruptions happen fairly regularly as many as 60 occur worldwide each year but many are in iso lated areas, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. After Kilauea's 1924 sum mit explosions, the volcano entered a decade of piddly rumblings, followed by 18 years of silence. Experts say Kilauea may be heading to ward years even decades of little or no activity. For now, volcanologists feel a "tremendous amount of responsibility" to learn as much as possible from the volcano, Poland said. Its latest activity has destroyed about 400 homes including about 280 over the last several days and displaced thousands of residents. Lava from Kilauea has also downed power lines and knifed across highways. "It's coming at a great cost in terms of impact on the lives and livelihoods of so many people we owe it to the people of Puna to make sure that we learn the lessons the volcano is teaching us," Po land said.

By 4 a.m., he has already made headway on preparing a meal for 150 people. Just before dawn, the 29year old pauses to gulp down water and say a brief prayer under his breath before getting back to mixing a large bowl of chopped chicken with spices for a popular Syr ian dish called shawarma. During Ramadan, the holy month that began on May 16 and ends on June 14 when devout Muslims abstain from all food and drink between dawn and sunset, Abdalra heem works a customized nocturnal schedule. The Syr ian refugee, who cooks for a meal delivery service called Foodhini, starts his working day around 2 a.m. That way he doesn't have to spend his days over a hot stove without being able to drink water. "The grill makes you thirsty," Abdalraheem said. "That kind of work while you're fasting is very dif cult." Abdalraheem has faced far greater challenges: A native of the Syrian city of Deraa the birthplace of the Syrian revolution he was work ing as a chef in Damascus when he decided to ee his war-torn homeland in 2013. He ended up as a refugee in neighboring Jordan, where he married his wife, Walaa Jadallah, a distant relative from Syria and a fellow refu gee. "Three years in Jordan felt like 30," Jadallah said. Conditions in the Zaatari refugee camp were atrocious. Life in Jordan was expensive, and as a refugee, Abdalraheem wasn't allowed to work legally. He took under-the-ta ble odd jobs as a chef, cashier and newspaper deliveryman. At one point, he was rounded up by police while on a newspaper run and spent 10 days in jail for working illegally. Jadallah was preg nant with their rst child and thought the whole family would be deported back to a disintegrating Syria. "I was tearing my hair out. It was the worst day of my life," she said. In June 2016, months be fore the American presidential election, the family was approved to come to Tucson, Arizona. As the campaign reached full swing, so did the rhetoric surrounding immigrants and refugees, pro pelled by presidential candi date Donald Trump. "I don't know ... Trump maybe no like refugee," Abdalraheem says he remem bers thinking at the time. "I thought people would be hostile and wouldn't accept us. In Jordan, we would hear that (Americans) don't like refugees, especially Syrians." But those misgivings were quickly dismissed the rst time Abdalraheem wandered out to learn the Tucson bus system and buy some house hold supplies. "I was amazed that the rst people I met on the street smiled at me without even knowing me," he recalled. "Then the people after that smiled and said 'Hi.' It was strange to me." After eight months, Ab dalraheem, Jadallah and their two daughters moved to a small apartment in Riverdale, Maryland, just outside of Washington. Shortly afterward, Abdalraheem found work with Foodhini. Company founder and CEO Noobtsaa Philip Vang, the son of Hmong refugees from Laos, felt connected to stories of migration and asy lum. After arriving in Wash ington for graduate school, Vang found himself missing his mother's home-cooked Laotian meals. So he decided to nd someone in the local community who could cook just as well. From there, the idea expanded to include im migrant and refugee chefs from other countries to develop their own personalized menus that Washington resi dents can order for meals or catering services. "People are aware of the situations that are abroad, but maybe they haven't really been able to even connect with a refugee," Vang said. "I think what's cool is we can kind of bridge those two worlds." Customers say they get the satisfaction from a tasty meal and a deeper understanding of stories like Abdalraheem's. "It's a win-win. I get his food and I also can feel that I'm helping him through what must be just an incred ibly difcult, difcult time," said Danielle Frum, who frequently orders from Food hini. Abdalraheem may run his own operation at work, but at home he jokes that his job is to be the sous chef for Jadal lah. "Manager kitchen my wife," Abdalraheem says in broken English with a hearty laugh. The two dance around each other in the close quar ters of their small home, as they bring out dishes of fat teh, kabsa and fattoush to the table. Just before iftar time the evening meal to break the Ramadan fast a neighbor knocks on the door. It's the son of the Iraqi immigrant family upstairs. He's brought several dishes to share, a ges ture of Ramadan kindness that will be reciprocated by Abdalraheem and his wife in the coming days. Their whole apartment complex is lled with im migrants and refugees from around the world. A sign out side the gate proclaims, "We Welcome Refugees."

AroundOsceola.com MOSCOW (AP) For many fans of food and foot ball, a World Cup in Russia is unfamiliar territory. Russian cuisine has a reputation for being stodgy, unimaginative fare. While that may have been true for many in the days of Soviet supply shortages, a new generation of Russians in the World Cup's host cities mix together inuences from across Europe and Asia. Russia's imperial past also makes it a great place to en counter unfamiliar dishes from neighboring countries like Georgia's spicy stews or Central Asia's hearty riceand-lamb concoctions. Here's a look at what you can eat in Russia:SANCTIONSRussia's food scene was shaken in 2014 when the government banned the import of most foodstuffs from the European Union and the United States. That was in response to international sanctions against Rus sia over its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. That's driven up prices for some ingredients, particular ly fruit and dairy products, but also stimulated a revival of Russia's agricultural sec tor. Cheesemaker Oleg Sirota wants to use the World Cup to sell his tilsiter, parmesan and gouda from his cream ery near Moscow. "We will be testing our cheese on football fans who are coming to the World Cup. There will be lots of them, the French national team will be staying two ki lometers (1.25 miles) away from us," he told the As sociated Press. "I hope that even the most sophisticated clients won't tell our cheese from European ones." Sanctions also mean topend restaurants, particularly in Moscow, have started rei magining obscure Russian dishes, working with meats like boar, venison and even bear.TRADITIONIn a country with a cold climate, Russian food is big on what you might think of as winter ingredients cab bage and root vegetables and pies lled with beef, potato or sh. The beetroot soup known as borscht is actually a tra ditionally Polish and Ukrai nian dish, but expect to nd it all over Russia. Another soup, shchi, is more traditionally Russian. Don't be put off by the intimidating name pronounced "shi" with a soft "sh". Cab bage is the one constant ingredient, but beef, onion and mushroom can be added. In traditionally Muslim Kazan, expect to nd local delicacies such as echpoch mak, triangular lamb dump lings like samosas which are the local snack food.MODERN TWISTRussia's traditionally gone easy on seasoning because of the high cost of spices in earlier eras, but that's start ing to change. While you might still see a menu which ags dishes up as "spicy" if they contain so much as a little paprika, restaurants are starting to ex periment with a little more spice. Still, chili sauce denitely isn't a standard condiment and some dishes may seem a little bland to fans of Mexi can or South Asian food. For a reserve option, most big Russian cities have other options like Italian or sushi restaurants, or a Europeanstyle gastropub with gour met burgers and craft beer.SOVIET SNACKSAfter a thirsty day at the game, what do you eat along with your beer? Ever since the Soviet era, Russians go crazy for beer snacks, typically dried sh and seafood. Some of the best selections are in Volga River cities like Samara, Volgograd and Kazan all of which are hosting World Cup games. Potato chips and beef jerky have gained popularity too in recent decades.EMPIRE EATSJust like the British Em pire absorbed food inu ences from India, the Carib bean and Africa, so Russia's imperial past has introduced its citizen's taste buds to new avors. The South Caucasus countries of Georgia, Ar menia and Azerbaijan spe cialize in spice, along with juicy meat-lled dumplings and succulent grilled meat known as shashlyk. Each country has its own specialties and the diasporas mean numerous restaurants across the host cities. Central Asian cultures like Uzbekistan introduced Russians to the juicy, greasy lamb-and-rice stew that is plov, now a rm favorite. Moscow has some more unusual options like huge, kimchi-stuffed Korean-style dumplings from the Far East called pyan-se, and Mongolian restaurants specializing in quality organic lamb.RESTAURANT CULTURERussian restaurant service has improved hugely in re cent years, with a greater focus on the customer. Don't expect staff to check in regularly during a meal Rus sians prefer to eat and chat in peace. Moscow and St. Peters burg prices will be compa rable to other European cap itals, a reection of higher rents and wages, but in pro vincial cities like Saransk a main course at a restaurant could easily come in below $10. One quirk of Russian res tauranteurs they prefer printing a few elaborate, leather-bound menus over a greater number of simpler ones. Don't be surprised if you're left waiting to see a menu when you arrive.DRINKSVodka's denitely still popular in Russia, especially for ritual toasts at celebra tions like weddings when everyone's expected to down a shot in one. Still, there's more to the drink scene. South-western Russia produces a lot of wine, though many Russians favor sweet or fortied reds which can be a little unusual to Western drinkers. Varieties from Geor gia like the saperavi red or rkatsiteli white offer some thing dry with a little more depth. When the ruble plunged in 2014, it sent the price of im ported beer soaring and gave a jolt to Russia's nascent craft beer industry. Most big cities now have two or three breweries churning out cit rusy IPAs and coffee stouts. Non-alcoholic options include mors, a traditional drink made from cranber ries offering a characteristic sweet-and-sour experience.

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.

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. Using a 1/3-cup dry measur ing cup, we portioned the bat ter onto two baking sheets to give the cakes plenty of room to spread. For the lling, we eschewed the traditional sugar and lard in favor of marshmallow creme, which we enriched with butter for a mixture that was uffy yet rm.

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.

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 E12, 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."

Saturday, June 9, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E13 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.
