By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Officials broke ground Tuesday on a new community park specially designed to accommodate the needs of children with autism and other sensory disorders. e 1.5-acre lot, located at the intersection of Florida Parkway and Buenaventura Boulevard in Kissimmee, will become the rst Osceola County park planned with special needs children in mind. e working title of the project is Senses Park: An By Charlie Reed For the News-Gazette Its been more than 26 years since Kissimmee resident Ruth Haut was murdered, but the killer remains at large. Her loved ones recently have been looking for new leads to help police nally solve the cold case. We want to solve this case. Were not going to stop, said Jean Wagner, Hauts girlfriend at the time of her death. The two had shared a home in Kissimmee for more than four years. Haut, a 42-year-old chiropractor, was abducted from her Kissimmee oce on the evening of Feb. 26, 1992. Her body was found the next day in an orange grove in St. Cloud. She had been stabbed to death and her throat was slit. Haut had gone to her office on John Young Parkway for a 7:30 p.m. appointment but never came home. When Wagner got home from work at 10 p.m. and saw Haut wasnt there, she immediately went to Hauts oce to look for her. Hauts car was in the parking lot and her keys were inside the unlocked, lit oce; a phone line to the oce had been cut, said Wagner, who immediately called police to report Haut missing. I was nervous. I didnt know what the hell was going on, said Wagner, who spent much of that night answering police questions. But by the next day, the missing person case had become a murder. Wagner learned that Hauts body had been discovered from watching the news. Detectives from the Osceola County Sheriffs Oce questioned Wagner several times, she said. Despite a solid alibi, I was treated like a criminal, said Wagner, who believes investigators were biased because she is gay. ATM receipts found next to Hauts body led police to a bank in Vero Beach. A camera at the machine captured a picture of someone using Hauts ATM card. A hooded sweatshirt was pulled tight over the persons face and they wore latex gloves. Analysis of the tape showed that the suspect was white and stood between 5 feet 3 inches and 5 feet 6 inches tall. No money was taken from Hauts account because she had less than $20 in the account, according to Wagner. By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Despite continued vocal bipartisan support from residents and nonprofit leaders, a one-stop homeless center failed to gain favor with a majority of Kissimmee leaders Tuesday night. Osceola County Commissioner Peggy Choudhry went before the City Commission seeking verbal support for a centralized resource center aimed at aiding and supporting homeless and working poor residents. City Commission chambers were lled with constituents who presented over an hour of public comment championing the idea of such a facility. The proposed center would provide services oen associated with traditional homeless shelters, such as two hot meals a day and showers. But Choudhry claims the facility would take a hand up, not a hand out approach by connecting those in need with existing non-prots that can assist with things like food, rent and child care. e center will provide the open door we currently do not have in our county, Choudhry said. We need a place we can count on being open to provide the bare necessities of life. Leaders from the Rock Church off U.S. Highway 192 already publicly pledged a facility on their property equipped with a kitchen and bathrooms in March to serve as a venue for the crisis center pilot program.

She first proposed a one-stop center in August 2017, but the concept failed to garner support from any fellow county commissioners. Once the $1 million funding request was shot down, Choudhry began building a base of avid supporters that included religious and nonprofit leaders, state representatives, advocates and constituents who have met regularly to brainstorm conceptual ideas for the one-stop center. After months of planning, Choudhry said she intends to bring her idea back to the county next month for a nal vote. She chose to mobilize her group this week to ask city commissioners to lend their voices in support of the center. But on Tuesday, some city leaders including Kissimmee Mayor Jose Alvarez were reluctant to endorse the concept. Alvarez insisted that local government is already providing enough resources to those in need through existing programs and initiatives. is has been a priority for us and this is what we have been working on every single day, he said. For over two decades, the city has funded programs and services that meet the needs of our most venerable residents. Commissioner Angela Eddy favored working more closely with the Community Hope Center, a nonprot that already provides an array of services to working poor families in Osceola County. Choudhry countered that the Community Hope Center, though a prime resource for those seeking assistance, isnt equipped to address the needs of the homeless by providing beds or a 24-hour facility. The crisis center was originally slated as a discussion item on the June 19 agenda, but Commissioner Wanda Rentes pushed to make it a formal motion of support by the board. Lets just agree and let Peggy go back to her commission and tell them The city of Kissimmee is behind us to try this eort, Rentes said. We have tried for many years using dierent avenues; this is one that isnt even costing us a penny, all were saying is lets give her the word that the city is behind her. Alvarez agreed to make a motion, but not before reiterating opposition. I made it very clear that as soon as the County Commission jumps on board with this project this commission would do as its always done and support its County Commission, he said. Were not here to step on the County Commissions direction were here to support them. When the motion was made, only Rentes and Commissioner Olga Gonzalez voted in favor of it. e impromptu motion failed 3-2. In a Facebook post made after the meeting, Choudhry pledged to continue the ght for the one-stop center and said she still plans to bring it before the county for a deciding vote next month. By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Strengthening mental health services in public schools became a national point of conversation aer a shooting in Parkland, Fla. le 17 people dead in February. State legislators took note, appropriating millions to facilitate a list of new mental health-related mandates. It was part of a larger $400 million bill signed by Gov. Rick Scott in March that includes new requirements for school resource ocers, school hardening measures and more. The Osceola County School District recently received its cut of funds from the state totaling just over $1.62 million. Ocials met Tuesday to discuss how to spend the money and explored ways to generate revenue in case the extra funds get cut next year. Highlights from the district plan include: Funds will pay salaries for two licensed mental health counselors, 11 school social workers, a clerical assistant for data reporting and Medicaid reimbursements, a student services coordinator and two school psychologists. Funding will also be used for a $25,000 health records system, $49,699 on professional development and $100,000 to cover uninsured students who are deemed at-risk and in need of services. A social worker will be placed at each high school and alternative school in the county. Social workers will also be required to work more days at middle and multi-level schools. Charter schools will receive $296,178 of the $1.62 million allocation. All new expenditures are not being funded by any other source. That final point was a concern for Superintendent Debra Pace, who said it was important to secure other revenue streams. She noted that Medicaid reimbursements are an underutilized way for the district to capture funds. We believe over time we may be able to recoup enough Medicaid funding so that even if the mental health funding from the state goes away because we never know if thats a recurring element or not we would be able to sustain and support the sta without an impact on the operational budget, Pace said. e paperwork-intensive process is similar to how doctor oces bill Medicaid for patients who are insured through the government healthcare program. Schools can seek reimbursement for certain services, like therapy and behavioral evaluations, and Medicaid will compensate part of the cost through its certified student match program. Supervisor of Student Services Elizabeth Lane said the district has been doing this for several years, but is in the process of exploring software programs that would make it faster and easier to process more paperwork. When it comes to getting students the help they need, new mental health professionals will continue working closely with the districts 14 community partners to refer parents to outside agencies that can provide more intensive mental health treatment, Lane said.

According to an Osceola County Sheriffs Office report, detectives arrested 70-year-old Luis Eduardo Linares, of Kissimmee, on four counts of lewd or lascivious molestation. Linares, who was a family friend, gained the trust of the 8-year-old victim and the family by purchasing various gis for the victim throughout a year. Linares used the opportunities, when he was alone with the victim, to molest the child on at least four separate occasions, the report stated. He was booked into the Osceola County Jail with no bond. Detectives believe additional victims may exist. Anyone with information regarding this case or any additional victims is asked to contact the Sheris Oce at 407-348-2222 or Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS, where information leading to a felony arrest may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000 St. Cloud woman killed in crash A St. Cloud woman was killed on Floridas Turnpike on Monday aer her vehicle hit a construction machine that drove into her path, authorities said. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Susan Bagass, 62, of St. Cloud, was driving a 2013 Ford Edge southbound on the turnpike at about 9:45 p.m. in the inside lane. A man li being operated by Robert Wilson Jr. from a hydraulic li bucket was in a construction area and drove directly into the path of the Ford, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. e Ford struck the right side of the man li, knocking Wilson out of the bucket. The Ford then rotated clockwise and struck a barrier wall on the le side. Bagass was pronounced dead on scene. Her passenger, Jennifer Fletcher, 62, of St. Cloud, was taken to Osceola County Regional Medical Center in serious condition. Wilson was taken to the same hospital in critical condition.HAUTContinued from Page 1 By 1995, investigators named Curtis J. Hu Jr. as the primary suspect. He was already serving time at the state prison in Hardee County for a 1993 attempted murder that occurred during a botched robbery at a Kissimmee motel. e judge who convicted Hu in that case told him, My picture of you is someone who is afflicted with deep psychological disturbance and theres no doubt in my mind that you intended the death of your victim. Detectives told the News-Gazette in 1995 that Huff had been a suspect all along and that they had some things on Ruths case that are leading us places. The affidavit used to execute a search warrant at Hus fathers house in St. Cloud where he lived and to obtain Hus DNA, detailed why he was the primary suspect. It reveals some of the most damning evidence linking Huff to Hauts murder including: Huffs red pick-up truck was seized in the 1993 attempted murder case, and matched the description of a vehicle seen near the area where Hauts body was discovered the night she disappeared. Tire tracks at the scene matched the tires on Hus truck. A Children of the Sun cassette tape without a box was found in Hus truck. A box for a Children of the Sun cassette tape, minus the tape, was found near Hauts body. Huff, 5 feet 4 inches tall, fit the height of the suspect in the ATM footage. Hu grew up in Vero Beach and had lived a short distance from the bank where Hauts ATM card was used. Hus girlfriend told police he oen traveled to Vero Beach although he lived in St. Cloud. Footprints made by Reebok tennis shoes at the scene matched a pair of Reeboks seized by investigators at Huffs fathers home. But despite all the evidence that seemed to link Hu to Hauts murder, he was never charged or prosecuted. Why didnt they do anything when they found out when (Huff) was connected to Ruths murder in 1995? Wagner told the News-Gazette. Im upset. I need answers. e case was reopened in 2012 after detectives found new information, which was never disclosed publicly. But now, six years later, the case remains unsolved. Wagner has been reaching out to the media along with Hauts greatnephew, Stephen Madonna, who was only 4 years old when the murders occurred. Madonna, 30, who lives in Tampa, reached out to Wagner several months ago while doing research on his aunts case. We want to get the case reopened again and get new eyes looking at it, said Madonna, who grew up looking at a picture of his Aunt Ruth hanging on a wall in his home and hearing the grizzly details of her death. Wagner, meanwhile, said she has never recovered from the pain of Ruths murder. Its gotten harder and harder over the years, Wagner said. I think about her everyday. I dont forget what happened to her. I cant forget. SUBMITTED PHOTOHauts killer is shown here using her ATM card at a bank in Vero Beach.

Page 4 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, June 23, 2018 Is Howard Schultz ready to promise the American people a mocha in every cup holder and a scone in every break room? In 1928, a similar slogan propelled Republican presidential candidate Herbert Hoover to victory. Promising voters a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage, Hoover trounced Democratic rival Al Smith, only to have his slogan nullied, and his popularity undone, by the Great Depression a year later. Now Schultz, who recently stepped down as Starbucks executive chairman amid speculation he is angling to become the Democratic nominee for president in 2020, faces a challenge similar to the Oval Oces current occupant. Namely, how to convince voters a businessman is qualied to lead the country. Ill admit, Im already more intrigued with candidate Howard Schultz than I ever was with candidate Donald Trump. Perhaps thats because Ive never stayed in a Trump hotel, grilled a Trump steak, knotted a Trump tie, hacked my way around a Trump golf course or enrolled in Trump University. Also, Ive never been a contestant on e Celebrity Apprentice so I cant really relate to the guy. But Schultz? His coffee brainchild is part of my daily existence. A tall, skim latte wakes me up. An Iced Cae Americano cools me down. A venti Frappuccino puts on the pounds and a Chicken and Quinoa Protein Bowl will, hopefully, take them o. is is the businessman Id rally around, never mind that hes never held public oce. And if Schultz won? I already have some ideas for how to make our government hum like the worlds most eciently run Starbucks, presided over by the nations barista in chief. For starters? All cabinet positions would be retitled with hard-to-pronounce, Italiansounding names. Secretary of Defense? Not anymore. North Koreas Kim Jong Un wouldnt dare threaten the United States once he met the Grande Bombino, who, with a swipe from an iPhone app, could eortlessly order a rst strike with a double shot of nukes. Our vice president? Now known as the chai president, a pleasing, relaxing alternative to Schultz, if necessary. Speaking of the cabinet, Schultzs inner circle would begin meetings in a far dierent manner than the members who answer to Trump. Rather than go around the room and have all cabinet members praise his merits, as Trump has been wont to do, Schultz would take coee orders, writing the names of each ocial on separate cups. Complex requests, such as extra shot, light ice, no whip would be tolerated only if the United States is not under attack on that particular morning. Otherwise, everybody gets strong black coee and plain bagels. Schultz could keep his job approval numbers strong through surprise announcements via his Twitter feed. Americans angry with an executive order or Schultzs steadfast support for a hot-button issue like gay marriage would quickly calm down once President Schultz tweeted steep, temporary discounts on all Cinnamon Dolce Lattes. Addicts of that beverage would praise the move and wait in line for hours for the chance to save a few bucks, even if the beverage was ultimately prepared by a married gay couple. Outside the White House, visitors cueing up for tours could take advantage of free Wi-Fi. And, rather than stand in the hot sun, tourists could sit at an array of bamboo tables and ergonomic chairs, provided they werent already occupied by aspiring screenwriters, which could be the case. What better way to achieve literary inspiration than by staring across the street at protesters booing Schultzs proimmigration policies? Finally, during his inaugural address, Schultz would proudly proclaim that White House bathrooms are now open to all Americans, as part of the countrys new sensitivity policy. Strolling near Pennsylvania Avenue and feel the urge to relieve yourself? No need to purchase anything from the White House gi store or make a campaign contribution. e Peoples House is now the Peoples Urinal.

Page 6 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, June 23, 2018 All-Inclusive Playground. Its a unique milestone that County Public Lands Manager Bob Mindick said his department has been pursuing for over ve years. Residents had asked local leaders, including County Commissioner Viviana Janer, if there was any kind of park or play area for children with autism, Mindick said. Once we began researching it, we realized how benecial this could be for a number of children in the community. Mindick and his team had a clear vision, but struggled to nd the right location to make the new park a reality. The opportunity finally arrived last year when Fire Station 62 in Buenaventura Lakes transferred to its new location, leaving its former site on Buenaventura Boulevard vacant. Mindick said the site is a nearly perfect t for the project. e property already has utility connections for lights, restrooms and other groundwork essentials. Its also easily accessible and within walking distance for many residents. The county ultimately demolished the old station last month and cleared the lot to make way for its longawaited park. Project design plans take elements like noise control, population density and playground equipment size into consideration to better serve its unique target audience, Mindick said. The space is small enough to gate and enclose, ensuring a more controlled environment where children can safely wander and explore their environment. Bushes and trees planted around the perimeter will help buer trac noises that can distress autistic children, Mindick said. The design of the playground equipment also features the projects inclusive theme. Standard playgrounds oen feature a centralized play area comprised of one or two large structures. But designs for Senses Park will use multiple, smaller play places for children who may be overwhelmed by big, unfamiliar groups. Plans also call for several small color-coordinated pavilions and a special interactive play area featuring musical xtures children can play. We really wanted this to be a park that evokes all the senses, Mindick said. The elements we chose all provide that kind of stimulation. The project is being completed by local contractor Quinn Construction at an estimated cost of $875,000. e money will come from the countys general fund, but Mindick said private community partners are already stepping up to help donate time and equipment. Senses Park is scheduled to open this November.

Saturday, June 23, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 7 By Ken Jackson Sports Editor Florida Fire Frogs catcher Brett Cumberland played in the Florida State League All-Star Game a week ago tonight at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. As one of three catchers, he was behind the plate for the fourth through sixth innings, and struck out in his only at-bat against Fort Myers Miracle righthanded amethrower Tyler Wells. That alone in the Northern Divisions 5-0 win over the Southern was fairly non-descript. But, the appearance was Cumberlands third in the last calendar year. Last year, with the Rome Braves, he and center elder Christian Pache, who also made the Northern team this year, earned spots in the 2017 South Atlantic League All-Star Game. Cumberland was also an All-Star for the Melbourne Aces of the Australian Baseball League this past winter. Theyre all good experiences, Cumberland said Tuesday after the Fire Frogs (29-35) began the nal series of the FSL first half with a 2-for-5 performance with a home run and a pair of runs and RBIs in a 7-0 road win Monday over the Jupiter Hammerheads. Its an honor and a blessing every time youre selected. I thank God to have the opportunity to be named the best of who you play with each time you step up a level. And it was fun to watch Pache play the whole game against the best in our league. Pache played the entire game last week in center eld, led o and went 1-for-5. Tampa Yankees second baseman Diego Castillo, playing in his own ballpark, doubled twice and was named All-Star MVP. Austin Listi of the Clearwater reshers (Phillies) drove in three of the Norths ve runs with a pair of singles as the designated hitter. Eleven North pitchers combined to throw a four-hitter; one of them was not Chad Sobotka, who was named a North All-Star but earned a promotion to the Class AA Mississippi Braves before the game. Cumberland started the year hot at the plate then cooled a bit but is watching his average climb slowly, now back to .232 entering ursday. Baseballs a game of ups and downs and adjustments, he said. I trust my routine I go through every day, and Ive taken care of my body so everythings good. And I love our coaches, its a great group that supports us.

Good weightlifters are great at things like football, wrestling and swimming. Then theres Harmonys Brett McCarroll, who committed himself to becoming a great weightlier. After four seasons as a part of the Longhorns weights program, in which he qualied for the Class 2A state meet three times and became part of the USA Weightliing program, that commitment saw results. McCarroll was runnerup the last two years in the 139-pound weight class at state. e second-place nish this year as a senior was notable because, due to injury, he lied hurt most of the season. Based on that state podium finish and his dominance of the steps leading up to it, McCarroll is the Osceola News-Gazette Boys Weightlier of the Year. Just like he did when he narrowly took second place in a packed 139-pound eld at the top, McCarroll had the heaviest clean and jerk (255) in April at the state meet in Panama City. He rolled through the lift seasons biggest events, winning at 139 the Orange Belt Conference championship, District 2A11 meet and the Region 6 meet that put him back in states, despite a wrist and elbow injury just before the regular season started that set his senior season training back. Cumberland, Pache experience another All-Star Game weekendNEWS-GAZETTE PHOTO/MARTIN MADDOCKDespite a wrist and elbow injury at the start of the weightlifting season, Harmony senior Brett McCarroll rallied to win the OBC, district and regional meets at 139 pounds and place second at the Class 2A state meet, which included a weightclass high 255-pound clean and jerk.

While the summer heat can cause us humans to move slow, bass are just the opposite. eir metabolism speeds up as the temperature climbs causing the bass to be more active and feed regularly. Choose an active lure to attract the active sh. A rapidly-shed lure is more productive then one presented slowly. Your best times for catching bass in the Summer is going to be just before sunrise or aer dark and near midnight when the waters have settled from the days boat trac. So, just because the weather is a bit uncomfortable, dont stay home in the air conditioner and sulk. Bass are on their most active feed during the hot Summer period. Get out there and feed them every cast is a potential tenpounder. e Toho Marine Elite One Man Series season is halfway through the season now with ve tournaments in the books.

SPORTS BRIEFSSouthport Ramp in search of a big sack to take back to the scales and to hopefully earn some precious Angler of the Year points. Over $3,000 was up for grabs with sevn spots guaranteed a check. A grand total of 600 pounds of bass crossed the scale that day. Here are the results aer a long hot day on the water: Logan Murphy was this months big winner with a ve-sh limit and 26.76 pounds earning him $1,350 and 200 Angler of the Year points. Congratulations on the win and moving into the lead with points! Second place went to Jesse Tacorante for his limit of 25.60 pounds that included an 11-pound Donkey and a Florida Trophy Catch entry. Jesses winnings were $540 for his placement and a bonus of $360 for landing the Big Bass of the day. Not far behind for third was David Howell with 25.03 pounds. David caught a limit and had a half-pound deduction for a dead sh at weigh-in. He also had a sweet 9.55 Florida Trophy Catch as well. He went home with $405 for third and an extra $180 in his pocket for having the second Big Bass of the day. Fourth place went to Mason Boylan. is was Masons rst time shing the One Man Series this year and he walked away with $177 in his pocket for the 24.76 pounds he brought to the scales aer a halfpound deduction for a dead sh. Fih went to Anthony Pepe with 24.55 pounds for $88, sixth and $77 was claimed by Jim Watkins with 22.35 pounds. And jumping in the nal payout hole with his 21.99 pound bag was Kim Hebb for $64. Jerry Darter received the Enigma shing rod for being rst out of the money in eighth place. The top 10 in Angler of the Year points aer 5 tournaments: Logan Murphy, 777; Bob McDaniel, 771; Jim Watkins (J.W.), 770; Jimmie Murphy, 764; Jerry Darter, 763; Charlie Harrelson, 762; Kim Hebb, 758; Santos Solis, 752; Mitch Liss and Tim Snellings, 751. There was a 23-team turnout for this weeks Toho Marine Lake Toho Wednesday Night Shootout, with 61 bass caught and released weighing a total of 187.31 pounds. It only took 19.36 pounds and a ve-sh limit for Skip Stowers and his co-angler Mark Holasek to win the top prize of $225. Not bad for a few hours of shing. Coming in second and taking home $110 this week was the team of Joe and Mitch with their limit and 18.45 pounds. Brandon and Sam secured third place and $85 with 15.72 pounds. Fourth went to the duo of Joe and Dustin bringing 15.29 pounds to the scales and earning $40.

I tried to li what the state record was in the clean (285 pounds) so I could feel the weight so I could get that this year, McCarroll said. My footing slipped and I fell back. I was lucky I didnt break the wrist. Aer nishing second last year I had my eyes set on winning it all this year. After the injury finishing second was a positive, although I was still a little disappointed that I couldnt go at it fully this year. The interest in weightlifting came during his freshman year, when he began working in Brazilian jujitsu and got interested in MMA. At first I didnt think it was my thing, but my friend kept pushing me, he said. I just kept progressing and reached a point where I knew this was what I liked doing. He placed h in the 2016 state meet at 129 pounds, just 25 pounds out of rst, as a sophomore. His top clean and jerk of 270 pounds and combined total of 520 at the 2017 state meet le him just 20 points out of rst. is year he came out of a bunched pack to nish second (260-255) to clear favorite Josh Hibbard (325-250) of New Smyrna Beach. I know that kid personally, and knew hed be tough to beat in any way, McCarroll said. His final state meet experience may have been the most fun, he said, because Harmony truly went as a team Cameron Scheerer (sixth place at 129 pounds), Garrett Breeding (sixth at 199) and Joseph Derryberry (11th at 238) also qualied for states. It was a real highlight traveling up there with them, McCarroll said. It really hit me during my nal clean attempt that it was my last time wearing that singlet and competing, and then aer the meet ended it really hit me. McCarroll worked with Coach John Wallauer, Jr., now Harmonys athletic director, for three years before Nick Lippert took over coaching the team. I want to give Coach Wallauer a lot of credit, we were really connected because he competed in high school at about the same size that I am, he said. And Coach Lippert really stepped up and took over in a positive way this year. Plus I had the support of a lot of other people: my parents, my girlfriend and my teammates. Lippert said McCarroll carried himself in the weight room among his teammates like a leader the coach hopes rubs off on Longhorns to come. With culmination of an outstanding career and weekly success, Brett has set the bar for many to come and leaves behind a legacy of commitment to sport, team, school, and self, Lippert said. Brett is selfmotivated and loves liing, and I hope he will continue to compete as he moves on past high school. I look forward to Brett coming back from time to time to help some of the young liers with their technique. McCarroll hopes to use some of those leadership skills in the near future, as he hopes to soon enter the police academy. MCCARROLLContinued from Page 7.

Saturday, June 23, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 11 By Krista Stump e rainy season is upon us in Central Florida. And when it rains, it pours. On average, we get over 7 inches of rain in the month of June. Where does all this rain go? What if we could capture some of it and use it during dry times? According to the University of Florida, Central Florida residents in ve counties (Lake, Orange, Polk, Seminole, and Osceola) currently use about 650 million gallons of water a day. e majority of this water is used for lawn and garden irrigation. As our population continues to rapidly grow, so will our water needs. Engineers have calculated that we can only draw 850 million gallons from the Floridan aquifer without damaging the natural system. Luckily, there are ways to conserve water and protect this precious resource. One solution is rainwater collection and use. A rain barrel collects rainwater that falls from the roof. is water can be used to water plants, ush toilets, wash cars, and many other non-potable (non-drinking) water needs. In times of disasters, this water can be a valuable non-potable water source. For every inch of rain that falls on 1,000 square feet of roof area, about 600 gallons of rainwater can be collected. Imagine the positive impact this could have on your water bill and the environment. Rain barrels can also reduce surface water pollution. When it rains, rainwater typically ows o of hard surfaces like roads, sidewalks, roofs, and parking lots. As it ows, it picks up pollutants such as fertilizer, pesticides, motor oil, animal waste, and litter. is polluted water ows into a nearby stormwater drain where it is piped to a stormwater pond or other water body. Rain barrels are a type of Low Impact Development (LID). LID is a development approach that works with nature to treat stormwater as close to its source as possible. Other LID design tools include rain gardens, green roofs, swales, and permeable pavement. These systems are used to minimize stormwater runo to protect water quality. Rainwater also contains nitrogen a crucial nutrient for plants. If you are interested in rainwater collection, you can purchase a fully assembled rain barrel or you can make your own. Its important to use a mesh screen over the input of the rain barrel to protect against mosquitoes. Rain barrels are typically 55 gallons, so in times of heavy rain they can ll completely. To maximize water collection, you can use a second barrel. Otherwise, install a diverter to divert water back to gutter system once the barrel is full.

By Cathy M. Rosenthal Dear Cathy, My dear friend has a 7-year-old rescue cat that never stops meowing. She tried using a collar for this purpose to no avail. She loves her cat, but the meowing is driving her crazy. Can you oer any advice to stop the constant meowing? Marilyn, via email Dear Marilyn, Cats use meow and its many variations to communicate with people, not cats, so its great her cat wants to talk to her. But too much feline vocalization can drive some cat parents crazy. Here are some reasons for the excessive vocalization and how to handle it. If the vocalizations have increased over time, ask your friend to take her cat to the veterinarian to rule out health issues or hearing loss. Also, older cats sometimes develop cognitive issues (similar to Alzheimers or dementia) that can make them more vocal although 7 years old is still young for a cat to develop these problems. If anxiety is the suspected culprit, your veterinarian can recommend supplements or treatments to reduce the excessive vocalizations. Next, some cat breeds, like Siamese, Burmese, Turkish Angora, Maine Coon, and Tonkinese, can be very vocal, and even downright get yourself some coee and sit a spell chatty. And, mixed breed cats may have some of these breed traits. These cats have opinions on such things as to how long you have been gone from home and when and how oen they should be fed. ey are smart and love stimulating conversation but are easily bored. Tell your friend to buy toys that make a cat use its hunting behaviors, and rotate the toys every two days, so the cat stays active. Simply put, keep the feline mind and body busy, and he or she wont chat as much. Cats may also use vocalizations as attentionseeking behaviors. Just like dogs, cats can train their humans to feed them, pick them up, and pet them on demand. Anyone who has ever had a cat meow to go outside knows its tough to outlast a cat who is determined to get his or her way. But outlast her cat, she must. Tell your friend to schedule meal times to reduce demands, call the cat to her before the cat asks for attention, and wait for the moment when the cat stops meowing to pet or pick up. is basic training will help her cat learn that quietness equals attention and reduce the cats need to constantly educate her owner about proper feline etiquette. I am not sure what you mean by using a collar, but please ask your friend to never scold or punish her cat. Its ineective and only turns a sweet, good-natured, friendly feline into an ornery and annoyed companion. Dear Cathy, We have a 9-year-old, 14-pound female dog named Bernie. We believe her parents were Bichons. We brought Bernie home when she was only 4 weeks old because of the desperate condition she and the rest of the litter and parents were in. Our recent concern is that Bernie has become a hoarder. On her bed in our bedroom, she keeps growing a collection of socks and other clothing items. We have also found various items such as Christmas ornaments, kitchen sponges, even measuring cups. ere are no changes in her behavior or health. Is this a symptom of something more serious we should be aware of? Grace, N. Massapequa, NY Dear Grace, While the behavior is not uncommon many dogs like to grab and hide things near their beds this is a new behavior for 9-year-old Bernie, so I encourage you to visit your veterinarian for a check-up. While she is not showing any other symptoms, pain is not something a pet owner can usually see, and new behaviors can be related to pain. If she is physically healthy, then this could be a behavior issue related to anxiety or a newly-developed compulsive disorder, both of which the veterinarian can recommend treatments for that can help. I am inclined to think this might be the problem. In the meantime, keep things out of her reach socks and clothes in hampers and Christmas ornaments on shelves she cant reach to make sure she wont swallow anything that could block her intestines and require surgery. She could be protective of her treasures, so put her outside before gathering up the items and putting them away. Dont deny her comforts though. Be sure you have safe dog toys to replace these items, so she is not further stressed.Cats with the gift of gab can sometimes drive owners crazyHow to banish pet odors from homeDogs, cats, birds, and lizards have evolved from wild animals and outdoor companions to become beloved, largely domesticated members of the family. e number of pets in homes across the country continues to grow. According to Statista, as of March 2017, 94.2 million cats and 89.7 million dogs were estimated to live in the United States as pets. Canadas Pet Wellness report estimates that there are approximately 7.9 million cats and 5.9 million dogs in Canada. Over time, pet owners grow accustomed to their pets antics, messes and even their odors. Dealing with smells is par for the course for pet owners, and many become desensitized to certain common smells. But when company is on the way or people are thinking about selling their homes, pet odors must be addressed. Even though it will take eort, homeowners can freshen their homes and eliminate unpleasant pet-related smells. Find ways to ventilate. Odors can build up inside closed environments and prove overpowering. Opening windows when applicable, using exhaust fans and encouraging cross-breezes can air certain odors from the home. Clean frequently. Cats and dogs can leave See Pet odors, Page 15.
Saturday, June 23, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 13 Calling all cooks! Do yo u have a delicious recipe you want to share with the community? 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. Mexican cuisine is loaded with fresh and avorful ingredients, but few elements of a traditional Mexican meal may prove as impressive as freshly made tortillas. anks to the popularity of Mexican cuisine, grocery stores far and wide now stock their shelves with premade tortillas. But hosts celebrating their Hispanic heritage may want to forgo store-bought tortillas in favor of some they can make on their own. Delight guests with homemade tortillas Homemade Hispanic cuisine made easy Many dishes fall under the umbrella of Hispanic cuisine, which is popular all over the world. Dishes made in Spain may dier considerably from those prepared in Mexico, and that versatility, both in avor and ingredients, helps make Hispanic food so popular. Chipotle peppers are smoked hot chili peppers used primarily in Mexican cuisine. These peppers can add some kick and some extra avor to a meal, much like they do with the following recipe for Chipotle Beef With Fresh Tomato Salsa from Kathy Moore and Roxanne Wyss Triple Slow Cooker Entertaining (Robert Rose). Explore the history of salsa Chipotle Beef With Fresh Tomato SalsaMakes 8 to 10 servings 1 onion, thinly sliced 1 teaspoon salt 2 to 21-lb. beef brisket, well trimmed 1 cup tomato juice 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, chopped (see tip below) 1 cup minced fresh cilantro 1 tablespoon dry mined (granulated) garlic Tomato salsa (see below) 1 teaspoon ground cumin Flour tortillas, warmed Arrange onion slices in bottom of one slow cooker stoneware, overlapping as necessary. Cut brisket in half and place on top of onions. Sprinkle with chipotle pepper, garlic, cumin, and salt. Pour tomato juice over top. Cover and cook on low for 9 to 11 hours or on high for 41 to 51 hours, until beef is very tender. Using a slotted spoon, transfer beef and onions to a tray. Pour liquid into a deep bowl. Using two forks, shred beef. Return beef and onions to the stoneware. Skim fat from liquid and pour over beef mixture. Sprinkle with cilantro. Turn to warm for serving. To serve, spoon beef mixture and salsa into center of each warm tortilla, then fold tortilla over filling. Tip: Chipotle peppers are smoked jalapeo peppers and are often found canned in adobo sauce. Use one for this recipe, then freeze the rest in an airtight container for up to 6 months. For even more convenience, separate the peppers and place in a single layer on a tray, topped with a little adobo sauce; freeze until firm, then transfer each pepper to a sealable freezer bag. You can then use just the amount you need for each recipe.Corn TortillasMakes 12 tortillas 2 cups masa harina 11 cups warm water Have ready 24 7-inch squares of wax paper. Combine the masa harina and warm water in a medium bowl. Blend the mixture with a fork until it forms a smooth ball. Divide the dough into 12 pieces. Form the pieces into balls and cover the balls of dough with an inverted bowl. Put a piece of wax paper on the bottom half of a tortilla press and place a dough ball on it, opposite the handle and slightly off center toward the edge of the press. Flatten the ball slightly and cover it with another wax paper square. Lower the top of the press onto the wax paper and press down firmly on the lever until the tortilla measures about 6 to 61 inches in diameter. Make all the tortillas in the same way with the remaining dough. Heat a griddle over high heat until hot. Carefully peel off the top paper square from a tortilla and invert the tortilla onto the griddle. After 5 seconds, peel off the remaining wax paper. Cook the tortilla for 1 minute; turn it and cook until it looks dry and flecked with golden spots, 30 seconds to 1 minute longer. Transfer the tortilla to a plate or a napkin-lined basket. Cook the remaining tortillas in the same way. If theyre not used immediately, wrap them in stacks of 4 in aluminum foil. Once you have made your own tortillas, you can go the extra mile by using some of those tortillas to prepare the following recipe for Crisp Tortilla Chips, which make for the perfect addition to any traditional Mexican meal.Tacos with Grilled Steak and VeggiesPrep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 14 minutes Serves 6 Ingredients: 2 10.5-oz. packages of Manns Southwest Chipotle Nourish Bowl Juice of 2 limes 4 beef flat iron steaks (about 7 ounces each) 1 package whole wheat tortillas Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 1 avocado, sliced Chipotle Mayonnaise 1 cup mayonnaise Juice of 1 lime 1 to 2 teaspoons adobo sauce (the sauce that canned chipotle peppers are packed in) Directions: 1. Prepare the Nourish Bowl according to package instructions. Squeeze lime juice over the vegetables and season with a bit of salt and pepper. Toss to combine then set aside. 2. Season steaks with salt and pepper. Place on grill and cook with the lid closed for 10 to 14 minutes over medium-heat for medium to medium-rare doneness, turning occasionally. Allow to rest off the grill for 5 minutes, then carve into slices. 3. To make the mayonnaise, place all ingredients into a small mixing bowl and stir well to combine. 4. Place tortillas on grill and cook until warm and slightly charred. 5. To assemble the tacos, place a couple slices of grilled steak on the bottom. Add vegetables and top with a slice of avocado. Drizzle the top with chipotle mayonnaise. e term salsa not only refers to a Latin style of dance, but it also doubles as the name of one of the worlds most popular condiments. Salsa is the Spanish and Italian word for sauce, and the salsa that many people enjoy can be used as a sauce, topping, dip, or avoring for many types of foods. Although salsa has been Americas favorite condiment since 2000, its popularity can be traced back thousands of years. The wild tomato, the main component of many salsas, is indigenous to South America. However, Central American nations were some of the rst to domesticate the tomato and mix it with other ingredients to produce tasty salsa combinations. It is believed that the salsa we know today originated with the Incan people. Incan lords are purported to have combined tomatoes with chili peppers and ground squash seeds and consumed their salsa primarily as a condiment served on turkey, venison, lobster, and sh. Mayans and Aztecs likely had their interpretations of salsa as well. Hot peppers were an important component of many salsas, and in the early twentieth century, food manufacturers began oering hot sauces in the United States. Some were geared to and named for Louisiana and Creole regions, where spicy foods were the norm and enjoyed regularly. Salsa sauces evolved and became more authentic interpretations of the earliest salsas produced in Central America. ey were manufactured to meet the rising demand of Mexican cuisine in Texas and elsewhere in the world. Salsas became thicker and chunkier and more about fresh ingredients. Today, there are many dierent types of salsa, from salsa roja to salsa criolla a sliced-onion version to salsa verde. Many jarred, canned and bottled salsas and picante sauces sold in the United States in grocery stores are forms of salsa cruda or pico de gallo and typically have a semi-liquid texture. Whether youre putting salsa atop tacos, using it to season eggs or dipping tortillas into its flavorful base, salsa has become one of the most popular foods across the globe. Tomato SalsaMakes 3 cups 3 ripe tomatoes, seeded and chopped 2 green onions, sliced 1 jalapeo pepper, seeded and minced 2 teaspoons fresh cilantro Juice of 1 lime Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste In a bowl, combine tomatoes, green onions, jalapeo, cilantro, and lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Crisp Tortilla ChipsServes 6 6 corn tortillas, cut into triangles Salt and freshly ground black pepper Preheat the oven to 400 F. Arrange the tortilla triangles on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until crisp. Transfer to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.

PET ODORSContinued from Page 12 behind fur, dander, food messes, and more. Eliminating the debris that pets create can reduce odors. Sweeping, vacuuming and mopping oors can help as well. Dont forget to vacuum draperies and furniture, and consider purchasing cleaning appliances specifically designed for homes with pets. Keep on top of accidents and litter boxes. Puppies and even adult dogs may have their share of accidents. Cats may avoid litter boxes if they are not cleaned frequently and then soil around the house. Be sure to clean up pet waste messes promptly. Baking soda and vinegar solutions are allnatural ways to clean up and can help remove urine odors more readily. Also, look for safe deodorizing cleaning products that can be used on carpeting, ooring and upholstery. Purchase an air purifier. Air purifiers can help remove odors and allergens from the air. eyre relatively inexpensive and can be placed in rooms that pets frequent. Wash pet blankets and beds. Launder pet beds, cloth toys, blankets, and any other items that pets lounge on. Sweat, saliva and dander can cause these fabrics to become stinky, and, in turn, make the house smell worse. Keep pets clean. Most pets are very good at self-grooming, but can benet from a spa treatment once in awhile.

Saturday, June 23, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 17Foreclosures on the decline in April (BPT) Across the U.S., the housing market is picking up pace moving into the peak of the summer homebuying season. In city aer city, home prices are on the rise, up 2.3 percent on average between April 2017 and 2018, according to the RE/ MAX April 2018 National Housing Report. And there are fewer houses on the market to choose from, with total housing inventory down by 11.3 percent. Based on home sales in April 2018, the national supply of inventory was at 2.5 months, making it a strong sellers market. (A 6-month supply of inventory historically indicates a market that is balanced equally between buyers and sellers.) Whats fueling the demand? More members of the millennial generation entering the housing market, among other factors. If youre ready to stop renting and start enjoying the benefits of home ownership, finding the perfect house within your price range can seem daunting, especially in a sellers market. Keep these things in mind to nd and close on that special home. The interest rate of your mortgage matters a great deal. Even a fraction of a percentage can add (or subtract) thousands of dollars over the life of a 30-year loan. One thing that can influence your interest rate is your credit score its just one way for the lender to determine how likely you are to repay the loan. Well before you begin browsing properties online, take steps to get your credit score in the strongest possible position. Review your credit report and report errors immediately. Make on-time payments and put off opening new credit accounts until aer the mortgage is nalized. Plenty of online services claim you can save money by completing the process without a real estate agent. But as many buyers discover, the savings dont always come through as promised. In fact, going through this complex process without professional guidance can definitely lead to costly problems later. If you work with an agent, youll get to work with a pro whos in touch with the local market and can lend a helping hand every step of the way. eir expertise can help you nd that perfect house and help you cra the right strategy for your oer. Visit remax. com to nd a professional agent in your area. When you nd the right house, you may not be the only one making an oer on the property. at can be intimidating. But keep in mind its not always about coming in with the highest dollar amount. Buyers have dierent motivations to sell. Some may be in a situation where they want to close and move out as soon as possible. Theyll be less likely to work with buyers who have their own houses to sell, making rsttime buyers more attractive candidates. Buying a house is a big step, and in the heat of a sellers market, it takes extra patience and perseverance. Find the right real estate agent to help you through the process, and moving day may arrive sooner than you expected.

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).

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) The Supreme Court ruled Friday that police gener ally need a search warrant if they want to track crimi nal suspects' movements by collecting information about where they've used their cellphones, bolstering privacy interests in the digi tal age. The justices' 5-4 deci sion marks a big change in how police may obtain cellphone tower records, an important tool in criminal investigations. Chief Justice John Rob erts, joined by the court's four liberals, said cell phone location information "is detailed, encyclopedic and effortlessly compiled." Roberts wrote that "an in dividual maintains a legiti mate expectation of privacy in the record of his physi cal movements" as they are captured by cellphone towers. Roberts said the court's decision is limited to cell phone tracking information and does not affect other business records, including those held by banks. He also wrote that police still can respond to an emer gency and obtain records without a warrant. Justices Anthony Ken nedy, Samuel Alito, Clar ence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch each wrote dis senting opinions. Kennedy wrote that the court's "new and uncharted course will inhibit law enforcement" and "keep defendants and judges guessing for years to come." The court ruled in the case of Timothy Carpenter, who was sentenced to 116 years in prison for his role in a string of robberies of Radio Shack and T-Mobile stores in Michigan and Ohio. Cell tower records that investigators got with out a warrant bolstered the case against Carpenter. Investigators obtained the cell tower records with a court order that requires a lower standard than the "probable cause" needed to obtain a warrant. "Probable cause" requires strong evidence that a person has committed a crime. The judge at Carpenter's trial refused to suppress the records, nding no warrant was needed, and a federal appeals court agreed. The Trump administration said the lower court decisions should be upheld. The American Civil Lib erties Union, representing Carpenter, said a warrant would provide protection against unjustied govern ment snooping. The administration relied in part on a 1979 Supreme Court decision that treated phone records differently than the conversation in a phone call, for which a war rant generally is required. "The government's posi tion fails to contend with the seismic shifts in digital technology that made possible the tracking of not only Carpenter's location but also everyone else's, not for a short period but for years and years," Roberts wrote. The earlier case involved a single home telephone and the court said then that people had no expectation of privacy in the records of calls made and kept by the phone company. "The government's posi tion fails to contend with the seismic shifts in digital technology that made possible the tracking of not only Carpenter's location but also everyone else's, not for a short period but for years and years," Roberts wrote. The court decided the 1979 case before the digital age, and even the law on which prosecutors relied to obtain an order for Car penter's records dates from 1986, when few people had cellphones. The Supreme Court in recent years has acknowl edged technology's effects on privacy. In 2014, the court held unanimously that police must generally get a warrant to search the cellphones of people they arrest. Other items people carry with them may be looked at without a warrant, after an arrest. PARK CITY, Utah (AP) Mitt Romney did not ride a donkey. But the one-time presidential nominee and now candidate for Senate did cheer enthusiastically at a donkey basketball game, where 4-H members shot hoops while mounted on the beasts. Romneys campaigning on the ground in Utah like a homegrown hero even though he grew up somewhere else. What he isnt doing much is talking about President Trump. Romney was once a leading gure in the Nev er Trump movement, but now he says he wants to work with the president. What does his evolution mean for Republicans still opposed to Trump?WHATS HAPPENINGRomney, the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, has dropped his harsh critique of Trump as he mounts a political comeback as a Senate candidate in Utah ahead of a June 26 primary. Romney recently surprised his most loyal supporters, who include many Trump critics, by predicting the Repub lican president would win a second term in 2020. He also downplayed concerns about Trumps policies on trade, spending and na tional security the same policies he warned, in a high-prole 2016 speech, would trigger an economic recession and jeopardize national security. I think President Trump will be re-nominated by my party easily and I think hell be re-elected solid ly, Romney told dozens of supporters at a luxury Utah resort.WHY IT MATTERSRomneys team is downplaying the signicance of his new position, but by embracing Trumps re-election hes sending a strong message to the presidents Republican critics just as theyre beginning to contemplate strategies to stop or at least slow his 2020 re-election. The message, according to some Repub licans who shared their reaction on and off the re cord: No matter how you feel, stop ghting Trump; its not worth it. While many Republicans in Congress got that message after the 2016 election, for a smaller group of others, quiet conversations had contin ued about the possibility of mounting a 2020 challenge against him either in a Republican primary or as an independent. Highprole Republicans such as Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake and Ohio Gov. John Ka sich are openly contem plating such a move. Romneys position doesnt kill their prospec tive plans, but it certainly makes them harder to pull off with any kind of legiti macy.WHAT TO WATCHWill Romney continue his deferential tone with Trump after his Republican Senate primary on Tuesday? In a heavily Republican state, his election to the U.S. Senate is all but assured if he wins the June 26 primary as expected. Many Trump skeptics in the Republican establishment hope Romney will emerge as a Trump cudgel when he gets to Washing ton. It could be that Romney has simply been down playing his opposition to the Republican president in recent months to avoid enaming Trumps loyal supporters before next weeks Republican-onRepublican contest. Or, as some of his closest advis ers suggest, it could be that Romney was never going to be the Trump antagonist that some hoped for. Either way, the 71-yearold Republican leader should have an extraor dinary megaphone on Capitol Hill that will help elevate his standing as a freshman. As a former presidential nominee, hes sure to command atten tion wherever he goes. It remains unclear, however, whether hell use that sta tus to challenge the presi dent he once called a con man.ONE LAST THINGDespite all the interest in his relationship with the president, Romney isnt running as a big shot. The one-time political celebrity is turning down national media requests in favor of local outlets. On the ground in Utah, hes kept a packed sched ule, campaigning at local parks, private homes and sporting events. The aim is to convince Utah voters that he knows state issues and priorities. And that hell use his clout on their behalf in Washington. CITIZEN TRIBUNE PoliticsFriday, June 22, 2018 EEE-3 AP In this Oct. 10, 2017 le photo, the Supreme Court in Washington is seen at sunset.

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 CHICAGO (AP) The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. marching arm-in-arm with other civil rights activists. Cesar Chavez hoisting a picket sign in a farm work ers' strike. Gloria Steinem rallying other feminists for equal rights. During the 1960s and into the 1970s, amid the tur bulence of protests for civil rights and against the Vietnam War, every movement seemed to have a famous face someone at a podi um or at the front of a march who possessed a charismat ic style, soaring oratory and an inspiring message. Not so today. The new wave of political activism, marked by pro tests in the nation's capital and cities across America, looks more anonymous. Since the presidential election of Donald Trump, there have been marches for women, science, the Dreamers immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as chil dren and most recently, gun control, a response to the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. In all those events, multitudes of voices some more high-prole than others have represented each cause. Have America's protests changed so they rely more on the masses and less on one captivating leader? The answer, some experts say, is yes, for two reasons: Progressive politics have moved in that direction think Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street and social media has radically transformed activism. De cades ago, it could take weeks of planning, newspaper ads, phone trees and a rousing speaker to organize a successful protest. Now a Facebook post or a series of tweets can ll the streets, jam a state capitol or block an expressway. "With the rise of social media, it's denitely a lot easier for people to mobilize more quickly and you don't necessarily need to have one charismatic leader like Dr. King, who had al most some kind of magical quality," says Rachel Ein wohner, a Purdue Univer sity sociology professor. "But you still do need some powerful message that re ally resonates with a lot of people." Social media also makes it harder for a leader to emerge because it fre quently trafcs in bruising personal attacks, says Dana R. Fisher, a University of Maryland sociologist who is writing a book "American Resistance" about largescale protests. "I wonder to the degree to which people can lead in the same way in this era of Twitter and Facebook," she says. "Everybody's a critic. ... With people trolling and then clashing on social me dia, it may be harder to cre ate a following in the same way that we saw with these leaders in the past." Technology alone hasn't created the shift. Some progressives believe there's "something inherently wrong or problematic" about having one dynamic person seize the spotlight, says Fabio Rojas, an Indiana University sociology pro fessor. "Modern progressive social movements see themselves as a very democratic form of politics. When they make decisions, they want a lot of consensus. They want a lot of deliberation." Black Lives Matter, which has been in the forefront of protests against police vio lence and fatal shootings of black men, is among the many movements that have adopted this approach. "The model of the charis matic leader was not some thing that we were inter ested in and in fact, many of us were trained to believe that the people themselves are going to set themselves free, not one person," says Patrisse Cullors, a cofounder of the group. It's "dangerous," she says, to have one leader because that person becomes "the target of praise or the target of demise." Black Lives Matters, she says, was inspired by '60s activist groups, including the Black Panther Party, which combined militancy and social programs (free breakfast for children), and the Student Nonviolent Co ordinating Committee, a civil rights organization in volved in sit-ins and voter registration that became more radical in its later years. Cullors says her group, formed in 2013 in response to the acquittal of a neigh borhood watch volunteer in the fatal shooting of Tray von Martin, an unarmed black teen, is sometimes misunderstood. "People assume because we hit the streets and pro tested that we don't believe in anything else ... and that because we don't have a sin gle leader, we're aimless." Instead, she says, Black Lives Matter, which has 40 chapters in the U.S., Canada and England, has a clear strategy, including partici pating in electoral politics. Some members are running for ofce and in 2016, the group, with other organiza tions, signed on to a policy plan that called for univer sal health care and an end to the death penalty. Another leaderless movement that shook up the es tablishment, Occupy Wall Street, was inuenced, in part, by the Arab Spring, the uprisings in several Middle East countries that brought hundreds of thousands in the streets, leading to the toppling of some regimes. The sometimes raucous protests in 2011 transformed a park in the heart of New York's nancial district into an encampment with sleeping bags, tents, a makeshift kitchen and a rallying cry "We are the 99 Percent" condemning the concentration of wealth in the U.S. Micah White, the group's co-founder, says even though it took only a few thousand dollars to launch the movement, half of America had heard of it a month later. "That's priceless," he says. "You can't even get a Super Bowl ad that would reach that many people." Many credit Occupy with putting economic inequal ity on the national radar, but White says the group's real goal to end the inuence of money on democracy was "a constructive failure. ... The main lesson is that street protests do not translate into political change because elected representa tives are not required to lis ten to the majority." During the two months of the Occupy protests, White says, the encampments "de volved into paralysis when asked to come up with a list of demands." But he also notes there still was a worldwide ripple effect. "The way social move ments are created now is that you release an idea that other people take up as their own," White says. "That's precisely why Occupy was spread to 82 countries. We couldn't have organized Occupy Wall Street in 82 countries. ... The strength of leaderless movements is in their capacity to spread extremely quickly. Their weakness is in their inability to make complex decisions." Occupy wasn't the rst protest to employ disruptive tactics. In the late 1980s, mem bers of ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to unleash Power) demonstrated on Wall Street and shut down the Food and Drug Administration ofces for a day, demanding increased access to experimental AIDS drugs. Code Pink, a women-initiated activist organization, has been a vocal anti-war presence, at times interrupting con gressional hearings. Since then, other social causes have surfaced, no tably the recent #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and violence. And some long-standing crusades, such as the push for tighter gun laws, have a new face the teens from Parkland, Florida, who or ganized a massive rally in Washington, D.C., in April. Trump's election also spawned Indivisible, a grass-roots organization with some 6,000 local groups, some of whom have held vigils, marches and die-ins concentrating on both local issues and national concerns such as voter suppression, health care and the DREAM Act. Rather than have one per son direct activities from the top, "it's the people who are organizing in their own communities who are best placed to adapt their message," say Leah Greenberg, Indivisible's co-founder. While this democratic ap proach is effective, experts also say there are benets to having a leader. "Social movements need a message and leaders are really good at helping to shape that," says Rojas, the Indiana professor. "Move ments need money and re sources and leaders are re ally good at getting those, too." Leaders also can mobilize people behind a common cause. "A lot of people out there today feel there's something really wrong and broken with the country, with the world," says Karthik Ga napathy, rapid response director at MoveOn.org, a public policy advocacy group. "The value of hav ing a centralized leader is there's someone saying, 'Here's what you can do about it.' As of now, though, he says, there's no social movement or protest leader who "can really claim that mantle the way that King did." But even in King's day, movements couldn't be reduced to a face on TV or a voice at the pulpit. Whether it was the bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama, the Vietnam War protest at the Lincoln Memorial or the f arm workers' strike in California, each history-making event depended on hundreds, if not thousands of foot soldiers who never saw their names in the newspapers but orga nized, raised money and engaged in other grass-roots work. And many leaders were backed by formidable or ganizations: For King, it was the Southern Christian Leadership Conference; for anti-war activist Tom Hayden, the Students for a Democratic Society; for feminist Betty Friedan, the National Organization for Women. "We will always have voices that rise because they have the clear articu lation of the agenda," says the Rev. William Barber, co-chairman of the Poor People's Campaign, a civil disobedience movement modeled after a 1968 plan by King to focus attention on race, poverty and injustice. Back then if you'd asked Chavez or King, he says, "they would never say they were the movement, they would say they were servants of the movement." Hasan Jeffries, an associ ate professor at Ohio State University and expert on African-American history, says the civil rights movement was always decentral ized, but the media, look ing for someone quotable, would zero in on one per son. Often, that was King. With King's assassina tion in 1968, he says, there wasn't just the loss of a magnetic leader, but a sense his nonviolent approach wasn't working and a our ishing of the black power movement. These days, there may be no one dominant leader in the African-American community, but social media like Twitter and Facebook offer a different way to rally supporters. "Activists are now able to push back, mainly through social media and provide channels for multiple voices in ways that simply were unavailable on a large scale 50 years earlier," he says. That doesn't mean the message gets through, Jef fries adds, noting some people still ask what Black Lives Matter wants, though he believes it's abundantly clear. "Do you need a single person to express this? Some may say, 'Yes,'" he says. "But even when a sin gle person tries to articulate something, if the audience is purposely choosing to be not receptive, it doesn't mat ter if it's one person or 100 people, that voice is not go ing to be heard." Einwohner, the Purdue sociologist, says when his tory books are written decades from now, they'll include Black Lives Matter, the Dreamers and giant demonstrations such as the women's marches. "I think we're going to remember this more as a cycle of protests, which were planned and organized by lots of people," she says. "These rallies didn't come out of nowhere. People are taking action. I can't think of a name or a face that necessarily is going to be remembered 50 years from now. But will these move ments be remembered? Ab solutely."

Saturday, June 23, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E5 MOSCOW (AP) Mexico's mantra for this World Cup is "No Excuses," and that includes no complain ing about the menu. The team brought two tons of food to Russia, along with everything nec essary to make their players' favorites, including tradi tional tacos, cheesy quesadillas and, of course, their hot salsas. When Colombian manager Juan Carlos Osorio took over the Mexico team in 2015, he gathered a staff that includes a mental coach, a kinesiology specialist, a recovery expert and nutritionist Beatriz Boullosa. "Professor Osorio says it all the time, there are no ex cuses here, he's a man that makes his decisions based on hard facts and he has opened the chance for every one of us in our respective areas to give something to the national team", Boul losa told The Associated Press. "We know that in the past, soccer has been ruled in the belief that: 'since I was a player and that worked, it applies,' but that is not how we run things around here, every decision is based on science." Boullosa has worked for the national teams since 2010. She was part of the staff that won the Under-17 world title in Mexico in 2011, and also worked for the Olympic team that won the gold medal in 2012, but coach Miguel Herrera was not convinced and let her out of the Brazil 2014 World Cup. Osorio heard about Boullosa's work and brought her along to take care of the diet and nutrition of the squad. "Every player has specif ic needs, not just based on his position but also based on his physique and his per formance in training and in games. It's not the same for someone who played 90 minutes, to someone who stayed on the bench, we take every variable into account to make sure every player gets what they need", said Boullosa. The nutritionist is also re sponsible to monitor the nutrition supplements for the players to avoid any chance of doping violations. She says everything was supervised by a laboratory in Germany before the World Cup. The team did not ingest any red meat from Mexico to avoid any chance of posi tive tests with clenbuterol, a banned substance that is widely used by Mexican ranchers as a growth-en hancer. In 2011, ve players from Mexico's squad tested posi tive for clenbuterol, among them Guillermo Ochoa, the starting goalkeeper in this World Cup. The country's federation ruled the posi tive tests were caused by contaminated meat. More recently, Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez tested posi tive for the same forcing the postponement of his rematch with Gennady Go lovkin. "We started consuming red meat since we arrived in Denmark", Boullosa said. "Players are carnivorous by nature and they are happy to get the red meat back on their diet, and in nutrition terms it was also important because it has great bio availability and we had it banned while in Mexico". With red meat available, players can now eat all their favorites, and that includes tacos. "We brought a lot of food and we also brought a chef to make every dish as the player likes it, we are mak ing corn tortillas that taste like glory", Boullosa added. "Players ask for their que sadillas and their tacos and that really helps psycho logically, because you bring them closest to home". But there can't be a good Mexican taco without their ancestral partner: the hot sauce, an item that also crossed the ocean from Mexico. "We made a spicy chilipeanut sauce that is deli cious, and we also have tra ditional salsas some of the super spicy and some mild ones", added Boullosa. "We also brought cans of beans and corn. We are super loaded." BEIRUT (AP) Ger man Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday said an upcoming meeting of Eu ropean leaders in Brussels would be a "rst ex change" toward nding solutions and agreements to problems connected with migration. Speaking at a press conference in the Lebanese capital, she charac terized Sunday's planned emergency gathering as a "consultative and work ing meeting at which there will be no closing declara tion." Merkel is visiting the Middle East amid a seri ous domestic row over migration that's straining her ruling coalition. Bavaria's Christian Social Union party demands that some migrants should be turned back at Germa ny's borders, and has given her two weeks to reach agreement with European partners. Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, the CSU's leader, is threatening to go ahead unilaterally with his plans if she doesn't potentially threatening the governing coalition. Merkel rejects the idea of taking unilateral action. The meeting on Sun day among leaders from a group of EU countries, led by Germany and France, is intended to thrash out possible solutions. It comes ahead of a full summit of the 28-nation EU next Thursday and Friday. "What it's about on Sunday is talking with par ticularly affected nations about all problems connected with migration primary migration as well as secondary migration and, following on from Sunday, seeing whether we can reach, bi-, trior even multinational agreements to better solve cer tain problems," she said. "So Sunday is a rst exchange with interested member states it was open to all member states, but of course not every country is affected in the same way no more and no less than a working and consultative meeting." Asked whether she ex pects her governing coali tion to stay together, she replied: "I am working so that the coalition can fulll the tasks it set itself in the coalition agreement, and we have plenty to do; we have achieved some things already." Earlier on Friday, Merkel tossed a ball with students and passed out jerseys from Germany's national soccer team, cur rently competing in the World Cup, during a visit to a public school in the Lebanese capital, where many of the students are Syrian refugees. "We try to help you get an education," she told one student in English. There are over a mil lion Syrian refugees living in Lebanon, represent ing nearly a quarter of the population. This makes Lebanon the largest host country in the region, put ting a huge strain on the economy. In 2017, Ger many gave Lebanon 370 million euros to help with the refugees and in a state ment released Wednesday, the EU adopted a support package to Lebanon of 165 million euros ($191 million) to help cope with hosting refugees. At the joint press confer ence with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, Merkel promised to con tinue supporting Lebanon and said Germany wants to contribute toward a po litical solution to the crisis in Syria that would enable the return of refugees to the war-torn country. She also met with the president as well as with representatives of United Nations agencies and Leb anese businessmen during her trip. A day earlier in Jordan, another major refugee host country, Merkel promised a $100 million loan in addition to bilateral aid. She said she hopes the additional funds will help Jordan carry out eco nomic reforms sought by the International Monetary Fund. Earlier on Thursday, in a question-and-answer session with students at the German Jordanian Univer sity, Merkel said the refu gee inux in recent years, including from Syria, had stirred debate in Germany over fundamental questions. "I am on the side of those, and this is fortunately the majority in Ger many, who say we need to be an open country," she said, adding that "of course we need to regulate this."

Page E6, NEW YORK (AP) Sam Smith knows his music is melancholy and emotional, but he's hoping his live shows will be uplifting and feel "like a stful of love," as he put it. The singer, known for down-tempo hits like "Stay With Me" and "Too Good at Goodbyes," is launching "The Thrill of It All Tour" in the United States on Fri day in Detroit. Smith will perform at some of the arenas he played three years ago when his 2014 debut album, "In the Lonely Hour," dominated the charts. But he said now he's able to do more when it comes to the show from the lighting to the set list. "We didn't really know what to do actually be cause everything became very big before we actually had the money to actually afford to put on anything that was a spectacle," he said of his 2015 tour. "With this tour, I got to choose songs. I got to re ally decide what type of show and tour this is," said Smith, who released this sophomore album, "The Thrill of It All," last No vember. "I really think you can see, within the show, (the) growth of me as an artist, I hope." Smith talked to The Associated Press about the tour, cutting out alcohol and smoking, and going to therapy for the rst time. AP: How have you been prepping to get ready for this tour? Smith: It's very, very tough. I'm trying to really discover other joys in life instead of going out drinking and going clubbing. I've completely stopped drinking. I'm working out. I have my trainer on the road with me, which is amazing. I work out every day. I've just had four weeks off so I've been eating a lot of really bad food, so I'm trying to work that off before I get to New York. I'm just being super, super, super healthy. Mak ing sure I go to bed after the shows and rest my voice. It's really looking after myself as much as I can. The time that I'm on stage is my time to have fun and that's my time to express and let go. AP: Have you cut out smoking? Smith: Yes. The last year or so, I'm embarrassed to say that I did I fell into the pit of smoking cigarettes. I'm battling it. I'm not smoking at all at the moment. When I have my time off in between shows I nd it really difcult. But I'm pretty certain and sure that I've kicked it now. I have to. It's so bad for you. It's just affecting my voice. It affects my mood as well, smoking. I feel like I'm hurting myself in a way when I do it. So, I've stopped that. AP: You sing live every night. How does it feel when you see others lip sync? Smith: In general, I nd it sad. It's different with the different artists, I feel. ...I don't know for certain, but I'm pretty sure some people sing a bit here and there and mime a bit during the show because they're dancing so hard. Then I understand that be cause I'm not a dancer and I don't know how it feels. If you're singing for a bit of it live, then I get it. I've got to admit, it's some thing that I nd annoying, especially within pop mu sic, because I'm someone who has never mimed. I've never ever mimed my en tire life. Whenever people around you are miming, you're kind of expected to do the same amount of work and promo and stuff as all the other artists. But, it's hard. I can't do as much promo. I can't sing at out every day, all day because my songs are very, very high and demanding for me as a male singer. I sing in a place in my voice, even when I'm singing high, I'm belting. It's quite exhausting for my vocal chords. It's just a strain because sometimes I feel like I can't work as hard as everyone else because I'm not miming. Other than that, what other people do isn't my business. If they can sleep at night and they mime, then that's ne. It works for them, it doesn't work for me. AP: Do you get to go to concerts? If so, who have you seen recently? Smith: Yeah, I go to shows quite a lot. I try to see all the big pop shows. I saw Beyonce's "Lemonade" stadium tour. I'm watching all of her "On the (Run Tour)" stuff online. I'm just obsessed. It's just incredible to watch. My dream person to see that I haven't seen is Robyn. I just really want to see her live. I think I'd just cry the whole time. AP: How's it been per forming songs from your latest album now that it's been out several months? Smith: I look back at this album and sometimes, when I'm singing these songs, I worry because I know they are very dark. If you listen to the album it's got quite a dark tone to it. "In the Lonely Hour" I felt that it was mel ancholy but there was hopefulness to the songs, because I was hoping the man I loved loved me back. And I think during the period of "The Thrill of It All," I really was a bit stuck and I was in a place where I just felt very con fused about fame and felt that love was nowhere to be seen. I look back on that time and sometimes I'm almost upset with how dark it was and wish I could have written a happier re cord. But it was honest and it was me. I've already started writ ing quite a lot for my third record. Just wrote some thing today, actually, in the dressing room. It's just feeling a little more up. Never too happy. But I'm feeling a lot more condent as a songwriter, which is really, really nice. AP: Is what you're writ ing now a reection of how you feel now? Because it seems like you're happier. Smith: Oh, yeah, com pletely. I'm a lot happier now then I was. I still have my down days. After re leasing the record, I got into a really happy place and it was great, and then had a massive low a few months afterward. I started therapy recently and I'm starting to truly understand that you can't be happy all the time. And life is like a sea, isn't it? Sometimes it's calm and then sometimes it's crazy and stormy. And you've just got to ride it, I guess. I still nd parts of my life really, really challenging and difcult and I get very, very sad sometimes, but I have the tools now. And I'm try ing to work out the tools, how to stay happy, which is good. The not drinking thing is a big thing for me. Not smoking. Yeah, just seeking help around me. And remembering that I'm good by myself as well. I think alone time is really important. AP: Was this the rst time you tried therapy? Smith: Yeah, yeah, rst time ever in my life recent ly. It's only been recently, but it's been great.

Sam Smith on touring, therapy, smoking and lip syncingAmy Schumer gets into the podcast gameNEW YORK (AP) Amy Schumer is used to getting glammed up for red carpets, TV shows and mov ies, but for her new podcast, it was all about comfort. "Never will a bra be worn," the Emmy-winning comedian, actress and au thor said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday. "Amy Schumer Presents: 3 Girls, 1 Keith" launches Thursday and was recorded in her apartment with her comedian-best friends Ra chel Feinstein, Bridget Ev erett and Keith Robinson. The original Spotify pod cast will be widely avail able, and Spotify will have additional exclusive con tent. "I mean, that was part of the draw," Schumer said of taping at home without cameras lming. "There's just such a feeling of us hanging out like we would anyway." The casual environment helped set the tone for the weekly podcast, which fea tures Schumer and friends discussing love, relationships, sex, comedy, politics and more. Guests will ap pear each week; comedian Murray Hill and "Crazy-Ex Girlfriend" actress Rachel Bloom are featured on epi sode one and two. Schumer said some of the podcasts she listens to includes "This American Life," ''S-Town," Esther Perel's "Where Should We Begin" and "Oprah's Super Soul Conversations." But part of the appeal of doing her own was because she's hadn't heard any podcast like the one she wanted to produce. The idea of doing a podcast started as a joke, Schumer said, and she had been thinking about doing it for a year. "The goals were to make us all some money and just to hang out, honestly," she said, adding that the podcast will let listeners "be a y on the wall, just hearing casual conversation with friends and then also sometimes, maybe learn some thing or hear a perspective they didn't have before." Schumer and friends also discuss their personal lives on "3 Girls, 1 Keith." She tied the knot in February and said she's enjoying mar ried life. "It's funny, before you're married, people don't re ally tell you, but then once you get married, you talk to other married couples and they're like, 'Marriage is awesome!' And you're like, 'Yes, it is,'" she said. "It was like a secret, be cause they don't want to tell you because they don't want you to be jealous or some thing. But it's nice. I don't think it's totally necessary, but if you're into it, it's pret ty dope." Schumer has had major success on TV, in movies, on comedy tours in arenas where pop stars perform, and even Broadway, earn ing herself a Tony nomination this year. When asked what advice she has for young female comedians, she said: "I would actually not give any different ad vice to a female comic then I would to a male comic." "Not for any reason other than the advice is really the same. It's because it's not harder for female comics, it's just harder for females ... (it's) even harder than that for people of color in terms of equality and just like stuff that they're going to encounter," she added. "But for comedy, I would always just say to any per former, 'There's nothing like just doing it.' As much stage time as possible. I wish there's some other thing, but that's really the truth you just have to do it. You have to do it and do it so much that it has to be all that you care about until you don't care anymore."
Saturday, June 23, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E7 WASHINGTON (AP) The Supreme Court says states can force on line shoppers to pay sales tax. The 5-4 ruling Thursday is a win for states, who said they were losing out on billions of dollars annu ally under two decades-old Supreme Court decisions that impacted online sales tax collection. The high court ruled Thursday to overturn those decisions. They had re sulted in some companies not collecting sales tax on every online purchase. The cases the court overturned said that if a business was shipping a product to a state where it didn't have a physical presence such as a warehouse or ofce, the business didn't have to collect the state's sales tax. Customers were generally supposed to pay the tax to the state themselves if they don't get charged it, but the vast majority didn't. Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote that the previous decisions were awed. "Each year the physical presence rule becomes further removed from economic reality and results in signicant revenue losses to the States. These critiques underscore that the physical presence rule, both as rst formulated and as applied today, is an incorrect interpretation of the Commerce Clause," he wrote. In addition to being a win for states, the ruling is also a win for large re tailers, who argued the physical presence rule was unfair. Retailers includ ing Apple, Macy's, Target and Walmart, which have brick-and-mortar stores nationwide, generally collect sales tax from their customers who buy on line. That's because they typically have a physical store in whatever state the purchase is being shipped to. Amazon.com, with its network of warehouses, also collects sales tax in every state that charges it, though third party sell ers who use the site to sell goods don't have to. But sellers that only have a physical presence in a single state or a few states could avoid charg ing customers sales tax when they're shipping to addresses outside those states. Online sellers that don't charge sales tax on goods shipped to every state range from jewelry website Blue Nile to pet products site Chewy.com to clothing retailer L.L. Bean. Sellers who use eBay and Etsy, which provide platforms for smaller sellers, also aren't required to collect sales tax nation wide. The case the court ruled in has to do with a law passed by South Dakota in 2016. South Dakota's governor has said his state loses out on an estimated $50 million a year in sales tax that doesn't get collected by out-of-state sellers. Lawmakers in the state, which has no income tax, passed a law designed to directly challenge the Supreme Court's 1992 de cision. The law required out-of-state sellers who do more than $100,000 of business in the state or more than 200 transac tions annually with state residents to collect sales tax and turn it over to the state. South Dakota wanted out-of-state retailers to begin collecting the tax and sued several of them: Overstock.com, electronics retailer Newegg and home goods company Wayfair. The state conceded in court, however, that it could only win by persuading the Supreme Court to do away with its physical presence rule. The Trump administra tion had urged the justices to side with South Dakota. The case is South Dako ta v. Wayfair, 17-494. WASHINGTON (AP) Ivanka Trump, the presidential adviser who has billed herself as a "force for good" in the administration, remained silent for days as the restorm over forced separations of migrant fam ilies consumed the White House. In a closed-door meet ing with Republicans late Tuesday, President Donald Trump conded that his daughter urged him to nd a solution. But despite days of heart-wrenching images of children being pulled from their immigrant parents, she stayed publicly quiet until Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order designed to keep families together. Then the rst daughter tweeted, "Thank you @ POTUS for taking critical action ending family sepa ration at our border," and called on Congress to "nd a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values." Still, Ivanka Trump's conspicuous silence drew criti cism as outrage mounted over the separations. And it wasn't the rst time that Ivanka Trump, as well as her husband and fellow in uential presidential adviser, Jared Kushner, had tried to y under the radar during crisis and tumult in her fa ther's administration. Kushner has been in the Middle East working on the administration's peace plan while cable news lled with emotional photos of children in cages and audio of kids crying for their par ents at the Mexican border. And Ivanka Trump was in California this week, get ting heckled on her way to a fundraiser for Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy. After Trump's Capitol Hill meeting, Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., said the president "mentioned that his daughter Ivanka encour aged him to end this. And he said that he does recog nize that it needs to end, that the images are painful." As he signed the executive order Wednesday, Trump stressed that he had heard from his daughter, saying, "Ivanka feels very strongly" and "I think any body with a heart would feel very strongly about it. We don't like to see families separated." White House spokesman Raj Shah said Ivanka Trump had made calls to congressional leaders, advocating for a x. She was at a meeting Wednesday be tween Trump and lawmak ers at the White House. Her prolonged silence was the latest example of the challenges and calcu lations faced by the rst daughter as she seeks to promote a family-friendly agenda in an administra tion focused on hard-line immigration tactics and protectionist trade policies under a president whose comments on race, gender and inclusivity have drawn bipartisan rebukes. First lady Melania Trump weighed in more quickly, with her ofce issuing a statement over the weekend saying she "hates" to see families separated at the border. On Wednesday, a White House ofcial said she "has been making her opinion known" to her husband that he needs to do all he can to keep migrant fam ilies together. The mounting criticism mirrors the harsh spotlight on Ivanka Trump last summer for her silence after the deadly clash involving counterprotesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlot tesville, Virginia. At the time, the president pointed ly refused to single out neoNazis and white suprema cists, suggesting there was blame to be shared "on both sides." She also stayed quiet when her father unleashed a brutal attack on MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, ques tioning her intelligence and saying she was "bleeding badly from a face-lift" in a December encounter. At the time, Brzezinski and her co-host, Joe Scarborough, called on Ivanka Trump to condemn the remarks. Ivanka Trump was target ed recently by late-night co median Samantha Bee over immigration policy, though Bee apologized for using a crude epithet to describe her. Last year, Ivanka Trump did offer strong words against Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for Senate in Alabama, who was accused of sexual mis conduct with teenage girls during the late 1970s, when he was in his 30s. She told The Associated Press at the time: "There's a special place in hell for people who prey on children. I've yet to see a valid explanation and I have no reason to doubt the victims' accounts." After her father took of ce, Ivanka Trump said she aimed to "be a force for good and to make a positive impact" in her White House role. Throughout her time in the administration, she has sought to position her self above the fray, arguing in interviews that her focus is on policy and that she is more effective working behind the scenes if she dis agrees with her father. While liberal critics have expressed frustration that she has not done more to temper her father's con servative agenda, Ivanka Trump has made clear that she sees limitations to her role. "I came here with specic areas I could add value," she said last year in an AP inter view. "In the areas I don't agree, I state my opinion." She and her husband also got criticized by some in the West Wing for being absent during difcult moments; they were off on a ski vacation when the GOP's health care plan collapsed last year. The crisis at the border has upended the White House, even as the presi dent has told condants he thinks being tough on immigration will be a winning issue for Republicans in this fall's midterm elections.

Page E8, How much is that doggy in the window? More than you may think. New dog owners can expect to shell out $1,200 to $2,000 in the rst year and as much as $14,500 over their pup's lifetime, according to the American Society for the Preven tion of Cruelty to Animals. And that's just for routine costs. Emergencies will happen and they will be expensive. Budgeting for the ex pected costs, and saving for the unexpected, will protect your pet and your pocketbook. "A good rule of thumb is the bigger the dog, the bigger the budget," says Sarah Javier, president and executive director of the Animal Protective Asso ciation of Missouri.FOODThis cost is obvious, but often underestimated, especially when it comes to larger dogs. Owners of Labradors, shepherds and other big dogs should ex pect to spend $400 a year, on average, for premium brand dry dog food, according to the ASPCA.How to save:Use autoship. Online retailers like Amazon and Chewy, which sells pet products, will knock a few dollars off the food bill if you opt for automatic shipments. Don't overfeed. Feeding your dog too much can have a ripple effect. Not only will you have to buy more food more often, but you'll also have to deal with medical expenses if your dog is overweight. Not sure how much is too much? The portion guide printed on your dog's food label is a good place to start.GROOMINGThat uffy golden doodle will require regu lar grooming. The same goes for any breed with a long, thick coat. Dogs with shorter coats Labs, dachshunds and others still need regular baths, brushing and nail trims. A standard groom at Petsmart costs from $30 to $130, depending on the breed.How to save:DIY groom. Baths, nail trims and haircuts can all be done at home. The ASPCA's dog grooming guide has detailed tips for owners. BOARDING AND WALKING SERVICES Busy pet owners will inevitably need help car ing for their pooch. If you don't have someone to call on when you're not home, you'll need a dog walker and pet sitter from time to time. A 30-minute walk with Wag, a nation wide dog-walking service, is about $20. Overnight boarding with Rover's large network of pet sitters typically runs $25 to $35 a night, but can be as high as $75 in some places. Local walking and boarding ser vices are also available in most cities. How to save: Buy in bulk. You can often purchase a package of walks or boarding stays at a lower rate.DENTAL CAREA professional teeth cleaning costs $200 to $300, on average, but can vary depending on where you live. Your dog's den tal health will determine cleaning frequency, but annual exams and cleanings are generally recom mended. How to save: Regular brushing. Brush your dog's teeth at home with a pet tooth brush and toothpaste to cut back on the number of professional cleanings. The American Veterinary Medical Association recommends brushing at least three times a week and has a video tutorial.VACCINATIONPuppies need a round of immunizations in their rst year, and when they're older, they'll need regular boosters every year or few years. These vaccinations are necessary to prevent more serious, and expen sive, illnesses. A round of vaccinations for your pup py costs $75 to $100, on average, according to the American Kennel Club.How to save:Adopt. Your adoption fee typically includes the rst round of vaccinations, along with other medical services, like deworming and a spay or neuter. Vaccination clinics. Local chapters of the Hu mane Society and similar organizations often run weekly or monthly clinics where vaccinations are offered for a fraction of the usual cost.EMERGENCY CAREUnexpected vet visits for injury or illness will happen no matter how careful you are. And the resulting bills can cost pet owners thousands of dollars. "You absolutely must plan for emergencies," says Vicki Stevens, senior manager in the companion animals division of the Humane Society of the United States. "Start saving right away, so you have a little cushion for emergency care."How to save:Pet insurance. Similar to human health insurance, pet insurance can help de fray the cost of expensive medical treatment, including for chronic conditions like cancer or arthritis. Most plans reimburse 80 percent of eligible expenses after you meet your an nual deductible. Need help paying for services?

The expansion announced Wednesday, dubbed IGTV, will in crease Instagram's video time limit from one min ute to 10 minutes for most users. Accounts with large audiences will be able to go as long as an hour. Video will be available through Instagram or a new app called IGTV. The video will eventually give Facebook more opportunities to sell advertising. It's the latest instance in which Instagram has ripped a page from a rival's playbook in an effort to preserve its status as a cool place for young people to share and view content. In this case, Instagram is mimicking Google's YouTube. Before, Facebook and Instagram have copied Snapchat another magnet for teens and young adults. Instagram, now nearly 8 years old, is moving further from its roots as a photo-sharing service as it dives headlong into lon ger-form video. The initiative comes as parent company Facebook struggles to attract teens, while also dealing with a scandal that exposed its leaky controls for protecting users' personal infor mation. Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom told The Associated Press that he hopes IGTV will emerge as a hub of creativity for relative unknowns who turn into internet sensations with fervent followings among teens and young adults. That is what's already happening on YouTube, which has become the world's most popular video outlet since Google bought it for $1.76 billion nearly 12 years ago. YouTube now boasts 1.8 billion users. Instagram, which Face book bought for $1 billion six years ago, now has 1 billion users, up from 800 million nine months ago. More importantly, 72 percent of U.S. kids rang ing from 13 to 17 years old use Instagram, second to YouTube at 85 percent, according to the Pew Re search Center. Only 51 percent of people in that group now use Facebook, down from 71 percent from a similar Pew survey in 2014-15. That trend appears to be one of the reasons that Facebook is "hedging its bets" by opening Insta gram to the longer-form videos typically found on YouTube, said analyst Paul Verna of the research rm eMarketer. Besides giving Insta gram another potential drawing card, longer clips are more conducive for video ads lasting from 30 seconds to one minute. Instagram doesn't cur rently allow video ads, but Systrom said it eventually will. When the ads come, Instagram intends to share revenue with the videos' creators just as YouTube already does. "We want to make sure they make a living be cause that is the only way it works in the long run," Systrom said. The ads also will help Facebook sustain its rev enue growth. Total spend ing on online video ads in the U.S. is expected to rise from nearly $18 billion this year to $27 billion in 2021, according to eMar keter. Lele Pons, a YouTube sensation who also has amassed 25 million fol lowers on Instagram, plans to launch a new cooking show on IGTV in hopes of increasing her audience and eventually generating more revenue. "It's like Coca-Cola and Pepsi," she said. "You will never know what you like better unless you try both." IGTV's programming format will consist exclu sively of vertical video designed to ll the entire screen of smartphones the devices that are emerging as the main way younger people watch video. By contrast, most YouTube videos ll only a portion of the screen unless the phone is tilted horizontally. Snapchat began featur ing vertical video before Instagram, another example of its penchant for copying rivals. But Systrom sees it dif ferently.

PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) It was nearly midnight in St. Petersburg as fans headed back into the city from Russia's 3-1 win over Egypt, but the sky was still bright. The World Cup's taking place during the "white nights", when the sun barely sets and it never gets completely dark. It's impossible to ignore in St. Petersburg, the north ernmost host city, where white nights are associated with beauty, hedonism and even madness. Around the longest day of the year on Thursday, which marks the ofcial start of summer with the solstice, it begins to get a little darker in St. Pe tersburg around 11 p.m., reaching a kind of inkyblue twilight after 1 a.m. Two hours later and it's light again. "I don't sleep at night. I just nap," said Egyptian fan Sam, who didn't give his surname. It's caused problems for England player Dele Alli, whose team is based just outside St. Petersburg. "I woke up at three in the morning and I thought it was time to get up," he told British media. The team has installed black out blinds to minimize dis ruption. Black-out blinds are one of the most popular op tions in places like St. Pe tersburg, when people can not simply choose not to sleep for the months that the sun stays awake. "It's impossible (to fall asleep) if you go to bed after it starts to get light again," computer programmer Bogdan Bovin said after Tuesday's game. "If that happens, it's better just not to go try to sleep. You just have to walk around all night." Those midnight wan derings have become a staple of Russian litera ture, such as in Fyodor Dostoyevsky's short story "White Nights." A lonely narrator and a beautiful girl meet night after night in a tale of unrequited love and loneliness. The white nights are natural, but they feel unnatu ral. Alexander Pushkin's poem "The Bronze Horse man," a Russian classic, has the poet describing how he can read with out a lamp on a moonless night, before depicting St. Petersburg as a whirl of sensations, almost delirious. The city then suffers an apocalyptic ood which drowns the poem's hero. White nights are a boon for tour operators like Alexei Filippov, who runs night-time boat cruises through the city's canals, past imperial palaces in the twilight. "It's a great show," he said. "It's never too late to go out." There's one problem for Filippov's business during the World Cup, though his boats don't have TVs to show the games. Locals and their guests also have a tradition of parties, both legal and illegal, on the roofs of buildings in the historic city center. St. Petersburg sprawls across a series of islands in the Neva river delta, where Czar Peter the Great or dered the city to be built as a "window on Europe" for Russia just over 300 years ago. Until recently, wander ers on the white nights could end up trapped on the wrong island when the city's movable bridges lift to allow ships through at night. New roads built in time for the World Cup have eased that problem, and some bridges now remain closed on game days to stop crowds of foreign fans getting stuck. If you get home and the sky's too light to sleep, Russian locals can offer some tips. "Buy heavy curtains," says Arina Arutunian, who moved to St. Petersburg from southern Russia a de cade ago. "Or if you can't sleep, write poetry. Like Pushkin."More than ever, and without a team, it is China's World CupMOSCOW (AP) Out side Moscow's giant Luzhni ki Stadium, in a sea of Mexi can and German fans frothing with World Cup pre-game fervor, four Chinese football enthusiasts huddled together and agonized: Should they sell their tickets? Dressed for the sold-out match in a Die Mannschaft jersey, 34-year-old primary school worker Bian Jitao ar gued that he'd regret not see ing the world champion Ger mans start their title defense against El Tri. The other three wanted to cash in. Seeing Lionel Messi's Argentina play the previous day had been their highlight. Mexican fans were offering thick wads of notes. Back and forth, the four de bated: Money or match? Money, eventually, won. Two Mexicans handed over the equivalent of $2,200 in dollars, euros and rubles. The Chinese then headed off to a Moscow bar to watch Mexico beat Germany 1-0 on television. The scene neatly told the broader story of this World Cup: Despite having no team at the showcase tournament, China is making its presence felt as never before. China's economic clout, its surging inuence in the global game and its corridors of power, and tens of thousands of football-knowledgeable, passionate and well-heeled fans traveling from all over China to Russia are lending a strong Chinese feel to the World Cup, even though the national team has qualied for the tournament only once, in 2002. Corporate China also is using the mega-event as a stepping stone to conquer new markets. Ambitious Chinese cor porations that partnered with FIFA in the wake of the tournament organizer's leadership-shaking corruption scandals, when some other sponsors walked away, are being repaid with global visibility. Illuminated signs at the 64 matches are tattooing Chinese names into the subconscious of the world's consumers. Most visible: Property conglomer ate Wanda, the rst Chinese rm to sign as a top-tier FIFA partner in 2016, and smart phone manufacturer Vivo, signed last year for this and the next World Cup. Chinese electronics maker Hisense, also signed last year is dis played when match scores are shown on TV. Pitch-side boards also ash up yoghurt adverts, in Chinese, for dairy company Mengniu, signed in December "They've realized that the world is their oyster," FIFA's chief commercial ofcer, Philippe Le Floc'h, said in an interview with The Associ ated Press. "China is the big gest population in the world, it's a massive economy. They have some very, very good companies who are eager to have a presence abroad and I think it was just a nice t. We are providing the best plat form for them to push and show their competence and their products." Also important: The governing body's Chinese back ers seemingly have zero qualms about American and Swiss corruption and bribery investigations that hastened the end of Sepp Blatter's 17year reign as FIFA president and saw Gianni Infantino elected in his place in 2016. "A terrible phase for FIFA," said Le Floc'h. "We're not proud of it." Appointed in 2016 as part of Infantino's new team, Le Floc'h added, however, that in courting new sponsors, "Nobody told us 'Oh, no, we don't want to work with you because you are too toxic.'" From being almost invisible at previous tournaments, Chinese fans have become impossible to miss at Russian stadiums. The world-shaking growth of China's economy, second in size now only to that of the United States, means that jetting off for a packaged week of soughtafter matches with good seats has become affordable for plenty of Chinese enthusiasts of the game. While many fans stayed away from other countries that, like China, failed to qualify, Chinese fans have come in droves to see their favorite stars from Europe's top leagues. Surging from 7,400 at the 2014 World Cup and 3,300 in 2010, the more than 40,000 tickets allocated to Chinese fans this time put China in the top-10 countries for sales. The likes of 22-year-old Xu Wenbo have banked World Cup memories for a lifetime. On his rst-ever voyage outside China, the student and part-time football coach from central Henan province got to see Messi, his foot ball hero, play in Argentina's 1-1 opening-match draw with Iceland. Xu traveled with a group of fans who paid 38,000 yuan ($5,800) each for a two-game pack age or 43,000 yuan ($6,600) for four games and feasted on sausages and beer while watching other matches on TV in a Moscow restaurant. "Seeing the kickoff of Ar gentina against Iceland live in the stadium was so excit ing I wanted to cry," Xu said. "I saw many Argentina fans dancing and singing. Even though I don't speak their language, I wore an Argen tina jersey, and jumped and shouted with them. It was amazing. Unforgettable." The next big ambitions for Chinese fans: Having their own team to cheer for at future tournaments and a World Cup in China. Both prospects are becoming more likely as China sinks resources into the game encouraged by football-fan President Xi Jin ping With Qatar hosting in 2022 and a joint US-CanadaMexico tournament in 2026, the earliest possibility for China would be 2030. "It's a legitimate ambition for a country like China to be willing to host a World Cup at some point," Le Floc'h said. "It's great that President Xi likes football, it's fantastic. But the Chinese population loves football. Anywhere you go in China you see people playing around. Football has picked up. Is it just a fashion? I don't think so. There's really a movement." Bian, the fan who suc cumbed to peer pressure in reluctantly selling his Ger man y vs. Mexico ticket, grew misty eyed just imagining a China World Cup. "If that day comes, I'll take my kids and family," he said. "No matter how expensive, I'll denitely get tickets. Se riously, it would be so excit ing."
Page E10, WWW.CFLJOBNET.COMPost Your Resum OO nline At:ST arAR T YOU r R Car CAR EE r R WITH a A J J O B TH aA T I s S RI GHT FO rR Y OU! It's time to revisit grilled vegetables! I was recently tagged in a post where the author said that she was taught to grill vegetables dry and then season them when they come off the grill. I don't know what she was grilling and she seemed very happy with that method but it made me think about all the people who were now going to try to grill their summer vegetables without oiling them rst. And anyone who has read one of my books, articles or grilled with me knows, my mantra is "oil the food, not the grates." It makes sense that you would oil the vegetables to keep all the juices inside and prevent them from dry ing out. After all, dried fruit and vegetables are made by slowly dehydrating (the juices out of) them. A lit tle bit of oil creates a bar rier that prevents the natural juices from evaporating as the vegetables cook and the oil promotes caramelization, a.k.a. those great grill marks. This is important because grill marks equal avor, and a juicy vegetable is much tastier than a driedout one. Grilled vegetables are good all on their own, but they are even better with a great Romesco sauce to drizzle over them or dip them into. Romesco sauce is a red pepper, almond and tomato sauce that hails from the Catalonia part Spain where it was originally served with seafood and charred onions. Romesco is gaining popularity in the states and I have seen it served with just about ev erything. It is my favorite summer condiment and I use it to dress up grilled shrimp, sh, poultry, meat and all manner of vegeta bles. My version calls for reroasted tomatoes and one large roasted red pep per, so it is more tomatoe-y than pepper-y which is my preference. If you prefer the taste of red peppers to toma toes, switch the ratios and use 1/2 the amount of toma to that I call for and double the red peppers. I don't not use the bread which is in the classic recipe to thicken the sauce because I don't want to muddle the pure vegetable and roasted garlic avor, and I like a looser texture. Grilled asparagus and Romesco is my favorite combination. And, this time of year, asparagus abounds. So, the recipe that I am featuring is for Grilled As paragus with Fire-Roasted Romesco Sauce but you can use the same basic principle for any quick-cooking veg etable. Just remember to place the vegetables horizontally across the cooking grates so you get maximum grill marks and they won't fall through the grates. If you place them parallel to the grates, it will be easy for them to slip through and fall through the grates, and that would be a pity!GRILLED ASPARAGUS WITH FIRE-ROASTED ROMESCO SAUCEServes: 4 Start to nish: 1 hour Grilling Method: Direct/ medium Heat Grilled asparagus is my favorite, but don't stop there. Charred whole scallions, zucchini, yellow squash, roasted cauliower, pota toes and mushrooms are all better for a bit of Romesco sauce. It's all good. Throw in some grilled bread and it's great! 1 pound fresh asparagus (Look for large stalks with rm deep green or purplish tips and moist ends) Olive oil Kosher salt, about 1 tea spoon Romesco Sauce (recipe below) Rinse asparagus and snap or cut off bottom. Place asparagus in a re-sealable plastic bag and drizzle just enough oil in the bag to coat all the spears. Seal bag and turn spears to coat evenly in the bag. Sprinkle with salt, reseal bag and turn again to evenly distribute the salt. Place asparagus on the cooking grate over direct heat for 3-5 minutes or un til marked and caramelized. Turn spears occasionally to grill each side. Asparagus should begin to brown in spots (this indicates that the natural sugars are caramelizing) but should not char. Remove from grill and serve immediately with Romesco sauce.Fire-roasted Romesco SauceServings: 32, or about 4 cups Grilling Method: Indirect/medium high heat 2 pounds of ripe plum tomatoes or 2 cans FireRoasted Tomatoes 1 roasted red pepper (see recipe below) 1 head garlic, roasted (see recipe below) 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar, more if needed 1/2 cup blanched or Mar cona almonds 1 tablespoon freshly ground ancho chili 1 tablespoon smoked Spanish paprika 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, preferably Spanish 1-2 teaspoons kosher salt or sea salt; more to taste 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Wash and dry tomatoes. Cut out the core and drizzle the center of each tomato with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place in a disposable aluminum tray and place in the center of the cooking grate. Grillroast for 30-45 minutes or until tomatoes are caramel ized and soft. (Note, this is also a good time to roast the pepper and the garlic the pepper will take about 15 minutes and the garlic will take about 45 minutes.) Re move from grill and let cool in the pan, making sure to keep any of the juices that escaped. Peel and seed peppers and remove garlic from skin and set aside. Using a food processor or a blender, place tomatoes, their juice, roasted pepper and roasted garlic together and puree. Add vinegar and almonds and puree until smooth and uniformly chunky. Add ancho chili and smoked pa prika and pulse to combine. Slowly add olive oil until you like the consistency of the sauce. Add salt and pepper and pulse to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary with salt and pepper. Use immediately or store covered in the refrig erator for up to 1 week. (I store the sauce in glass mason jars_this recipe lls 2 pint jars, you can keep one and give one away!)Roasted Red PepperRinse and dry pepper. Grill over high direct heat, turning until skin blackens and blisters all over. Re move from grill and immediately put in a paper bag or sealed plastic container until cool. Note: the steam will loosen the skin from the esh of the pepper. Skin and seed the pepper (the skin will slip off easily). Use as directed in recipe.Roasted Garlic1 head garlic 2 teaspoons olive oil Pinch of kosher salt Remove rst layer of pa pery skin from garlic. Slice off top 1/2-inch from pointy top. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Wrap in foil and cook on grill over medium-high indirect for 40 minutes or until cloves are golden-brown and soft. Alternatively, place in a 350 F oven. Remove from grill or oven and let cool. Follow recipe instructions. CITIZEN TRIBUNE FoodEEE-2 Wednesday, June 20, 2018 APThis June 16, 2018 photo shows Grilled Asparagus with Romesco Sauce from a recipe by Elizabeth Karmel in Amagansett, N.Y. Asparagus sings with a red pepper, almond and tomato sauceLet us sing the praises of the humble, grillable flank steakWe wanted a simple, economical cut of meat for a casual backyard bar becue. After considering various cuts, we landed on ank steak. Like other cuts from the chest and side of the cow, such as skirt steak and hanger steak, ank steak boasts rich, full, beefy avor. What's more, because it is very thin, it cooks quite quickly, making it an ide al candidate for grilling. We visited our supermar ket's meat counter, bought a 2-pound ank steak, trimmed it, and got cooking. We found that there was no need to marinate this cut before cooking; with just a little salt and pepper and some sugar (which we added to aid in browning), it was ready to hit the grill. For this quick-cooking steak, we opted for a halfre grill setup: We spread the coals over half the grill to concentrate the heat for optimal char on the steak and left the other side of the grill much cooler so we could move the steak over if it started to burn. In just about 10 minutes, the steak was perfectly done. For a bright counter point, we made a quick and easy herb sauce. Fresh parsley contributed a grassy, herbal element; pungent garlic stood up to the meaty avor of the steak; and lemon juice added a touch of acidity. A bit of sugar introduced sweetness and helped mel low the potent sauce. We prefer at-leaf pars ley as opposed to curly parsley here.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) The United States is leaving the United Nations' Human Rights Council, which Am bassador Nikki Haley called "an organization that is not worthy of its name." It's the latest withdrawal by the Trump administration from an international institution. Haley said Tuesday the U.S. had given the human rights body "opportunity after opportunity" to make changes. She lambasted the council for "its chronic bias against Israel" and lamented the fact that its member ship includes accused hu man rights abusers such as China, Cuba, Venezuela and Congo. "We take this step be cause our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and selfserving organization that makes a mockery of human rights," Haley said. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, appearing alongside Haley at the State De partment, said there was no doubt that the council once had a "noble vision." But today we need to be honest," Pompeo said. "The Human Rights Council is a poor defender of human rights." The announcement came just a day after the U.N. hu man rights chief, Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, denounced the Trump administration for separating migrant children from their parents. But Haley cited longstand ing U.S. complaints that the 47-member council is biased against Israel. She had been threatening the pullout since last year unless the council made changes advocated by the U.S. "Regrettably, it is now clear that our call for reform was not heeded," Haley said. Still, she suggested the decision need not be per manent, adding that if the council did adopt reforms, "we would be happy to rejoin it." She said the with drawal notwithstanding, the U.S. would continue to defend human rights at the United Nations. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's of ce called the U.S. decision "courageous," calling it "an unequivocal statement that enough is enough." The move extends a broader Trump administration pattern of stepping back from international agree ments and forums under the president's "America First" policy. Although numerous ofcials have said repeatedly that "America First does not mean America Alone," the administration has retreated from multiple multi lateral accords and consen suses since it took ofce. Since January 2017, it has announced its with drawal from the Paris cli mate accord, left the U.N. educational and cultural or ganization and pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal. Other contentious moves have in cluded slapping tariffs on steel and aluminum against key trading partners, recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and moving the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv. Opposition to the decision from human rights ad vocates was swift. A group of 12 organizations including Save the Children, Free dom House and the United Nations Association-USA said there were "legitimate concerns" about the council's shortcomings but that none of them warranted a U.S. exit. "This decision is coun terproductive to American national security and for eign policy interests and will make it more difcult to advance human rights priorities and aid victims of abuse around the world," the organizations said in a joint statement. Added Kenneth Roth, the executive director of Human Rights Watch: "All Trump seems to care about is defending Israel." On Twitter, al-Hussein, the U.N. human rights chief, said it was "Disap pointing, if not really sur prising, news. Given the state of #HumanRights in today's world, the US should be stepping up, not stepping back." And the Heritage Foun dation, a conservative think tank close to the Trump ad ministration, defended the move, calling the council "notably incurious about the human rights situations in some of the world's most oppressive countries." Brett Schaefer, a senior fel low, pointed out that Trump could have withdrawn im mediately after taking ofce but instead gave the council 18 months to make changes. Haley has been the driv ing force behind withdraw ing from the human rights body, unprecedented in the 12-year history of the coun cil. No country has ever dropped out voluntarily. Libya was kicked out seven years ago. The move could rein force the perception that the Trump administration is seeking to advance Israel's agenda on the world stage, just as it prepares to unveil its long-awaited Israeli-Pal estinian peace plan despite Palestinian outrage over the embassy relocation. Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kush ner, is visiting the Middle East this week as the White House works to lay the groundwork for unveiling the plan. Israel is the only country in the world whose rights record comes up for discus sion at every council ses sion, under "Item 7" on the agenda. Item 7 on "Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories" has been part of the council's regular business almost as long as it has existed. The United States' current term on the council ends next year. Although the U.S. could have remained a non-voting observer on the council, a U.S. ofcial said it was a "complete withdrawal" and that the United States was resigning its seat "effective immediately." The ofcial wasn't authorized to comment publicly and insisted on anonymity. That means the council will be left without one of its traditional defenders of human rights. In recent months, the United States has participated in attempts to pinpoint rights violations in places like South Sudan, Congo and Cambodia. The U.S. pullout was bound to have ripple effects for at least two countries at the council: China and Is rael. The U.S., as at other U.N. organizations, is Israel's biggest defender. At the rights council, the United States has recently been the most unabashed critic of rights abuses in China whose growing eco nomic and diplomatic clout has chastened some other would-be critics, rights advocates say. The Chinese government expressed regret over Wash ington's decision to pull out of the council. In Beijing, a Chinese foreign ministry spokesman said the council is "an important platform" for countries to discuss hu man rights and that Beijing has been committed to sup porting the group's work. But the Chinese government is often accused by Western countries of hu man rights violations and by rights groups of seeking to undermine the mecha nisms of the U.N. human rights council. In March, a Chinese diplomat repeatedly interrupted a speech by a prominent Chinese dissident to block him from addressing the U.N. Human Rights Council, a failed at tempt that bared China's sensitivity on human rights. The foreign ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang, dismissed the U.S. criticism that the council is prob lematic because it includes China and other authoritar ian governments, saying that claim is "a total disre gard of facts." ''Everyone without bias can see clearly China's great achievement and progress in terms of hu man rights," Geng said. There are 47 countries in the Human Rights Council, elected by the U.N.'s Gener al Assembly with a specic number of seats allocated for each region of the globe. Members serve for threeyear terms and can serve only two terms in a row. The United States has opted to stay out of the Hu man Rights Council before: The George W. Bush ad ministration opted against seeking membership when the council was created in 2006. The U.S. joined the body only in 2009 under President Barack Obama.

And it's uncertain if Trump's support will be enough to push any legisla tion through the divided GOP majority. GOP lawmakers, increasingly fearful of a voter backlash in November, met with Trump for about an hour Tuesday at the Capitol to try to nd a solution that both holds to Trump's hardline immigration policy and ends the practice of taking migrant children from par ents charged with entering the country illegally. Many lawmakers say Trump could simply reverse the administration's "zero tolerance" policy and keep families to gether. While Trump held rm to his tough immigration stance in an earlier appear ance Tuesday, he acknowledged during the closed-door meeting that the coverage of family separations is taking a toll. Trump said his daughter, Ivanka, had told him the situ ation with the families looks bad, one lawmaker said. "He said, 'Politically, this is bad,'" said Rep. Randy Weber, R-Texas. "It's not about the politics, this is the right thing to do." But Trump touched on many topics during the meeting, including his historic meeting with the North Korean Kim Jong Un. He praised a few GOP lawmak ers by name for defending him on TV, according to one Republican in the room. And he took a jab at Rep. Mark Sanford, congratulating the South Carolina Republican on his recent campaign, ac cording to others granted anonymity to discuss the private meeting. Sanford, a frequent Trump critic, lost after his GOP primary opponent highlighted his criticism of the president. As Trump walked out of the session in the Capitol basement, he was confronted by about a half-dozen House Democrats, who yelled, "Stop separating our fami lies!" Later in the day, protesters heckled Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen as she ate dinner at a Mexi can restaurant in Washington, chanting "Shame!" and "End family separation!" A department spokesman tweeted that during a work dinner, the secretary and her staff heard from a small group of protesters who "share her concern with our current immigration laws." Leaders in both the House and Senate are struggling to shield the party's lawmak ers from the public outcry over images of children taken from migrant parents and held in cages at the bor der. But they are running up against Trump's shifting views on specics and his determination, according to advisers, not to look soft on his signature immigration is sue, the border wall. Rep. Kristi Noem, R-S.D., said Trump told lawmakers he "would continue to sup port the legislation, and that people shouldn't be wor ried that he would change his mind." She said it was a light moment. "Everybody laughed." Even if Republicans manage to pass an immigra tion bill through the House, which is a tall order, the ght is all but certain to zzle in the Senate. Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader from New York, is adamant that Trump can end the family separa tions on his own and that leg islation is not needed. Without Democratic sup port, Republicans cannot muster the 60 votes needed to move forward on legislation. Schumer said with most Americans against family separations, it's Republicans "feeling the heat on this is sue, and that's why they're squirming." In the House, GOP lead ers scrambled Tuesday to produce a revised version of the broader immigration bill that would keep children in detention longer than now permitted but with their parents. The major change unveiled Tuesday would loosen rules that now limit the amount of time minors can be held to 20 days, according to a GOP source familiar with the mea sure. Instead, the children could be detained indenitely with their parents. The revision would also give the Department of Homeland Security the au thority to use $7 billion in border technology funding to pay for family detention centers, said the person, who was not authorized to discuss the matter by name and com mented only on condition of anonymity. In the Senate, meanwhile, Republicans are rallying be hind a different approach. Theirs is narrow legislation proposed by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, that would allow detained families to stay together in custody while expediting their hearings and possible deportation pro ceedings.
Page E12, NEW YORK (AP) Hey Alexa, what's my bank ac count balance? Big banks and nancial companies have started to offer banking through vir tual assistants Amazon's Alexa, Apple's Siri, and Google's Assistant in a way that will allow cus tomers to check their balances, pay bills and, in the near future, send money just with their voice. And with the rapid adoption of Zelle, a bank-to-bank transfer system, it soon could be possible to send money to friends or family instantly with voice commands. But the potential to do such sensitive tasks through a smart speaker raises secu rity concerns. Virtual assis tants and smart speakers are still relatively new technolo gies, and potentially suscep tible to being exploited by cyber criminals. Regional banking giant U.S. Bank is the rst bank to be on all three services Alexa, Siri and Assis tant. The company did a soft launch of its Siri and Assis tant services in early March and this month started mar keting the option to customers. Other nancial companies have set up virtual assistant features. Credit card compa nies Capital One and Ameri can Express both have Alexa skills that allow customers to check their balances and pay bills. There are other smaller banks and credit unions that have set up Google Assistant or Alexa as well. "We want to be there for our customers in any pos sible way that we can," said Gareth Gaston, executive vice president for omnichannel banking at U.S. Bank. For now, U.S. Bank is keeping the features available through bank-by-voice fairly restrictive. Customers will be able to check bank balances, pay U.S. Bank credit cards and mortgages, ask Alexa or Google the due dates on bills, and other ba sic functions. Money cannot be transferred from a U.S. Bank account using voice yet, Gaston said, but the bank is considering the op tion. Asking Google, Alexa or Siri for the weather or to tell a joke is one thing, but it's a whole other issue when these assistants access and share sensitive personal in formation. These apps will typically announce a per son's available balance over the speaker, which has the potential to create awkward situations at parties. In the case of Google and Alexa, users must create a secure connection between their bank and the assistant through Alexa's Skills or Google's Actions. All banks require the use of a four-digit PIN before they will provide balance and bank account info over these speakers, and suggest making those PINs different from the one on a customer's ATM card. Apple's Siri is the most restrictive of the three vir tual assistants, only show ing a user a bank account balance on a screen, and not allowing other features like paying bills. Banks can integrate Siri into their iPhone and iPad apps, but Apple's HomePod smart speaker that launched earlier this year does not currently ac cept banking commands. A company spokeswoman declined to say whether that feature was coming. Google Assistant has the capability to do individual voice recognition, providing one additional level of secu rity on that platform, but that is not implemented on U.S. Bank's Action yet. Security experts say that additional level of security could be foiled, however. "Users' voices can be recorded, manipulated, and replayed to the assistants," said Kurt Baumgartner, a security researcher with Kaspersky Lab. "Also, with access to banking accounts and abilities to transfer and pay out money, remote nancial fraud may be within the reach of cybercriminal groups soon." MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is reconsidering its plan to label pure maple syrup and honey as containing added sugars. Maple syrup produc ers had rallied against the plan, saying FDA's up coming requirement to up date nutrition labels to tell consumers that pure maple syrup and honey contain added sugars was mislead ing, illogical and confusing and could hurt their industries. After receiving feedback including more than 3,000 comments on its draft plan, the FDA said Monday that it would now come up with a revised ap proach. "The feedback that FDA has received is that the ap proach laid out in the draft guidance does not provide the clarity that the FDA intended. It is important to FDA that consumers are able to effectively use the new Nutrition Facts label to make informed, healthy dietary choices. The agency looks forward to working with stakeholders to devise a sensible so lution," the FDA said. FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb had said earlier this year that he has made nutrition one of his top priorities, and the Nutrition Facts label hasn't been meaningfully updated in decades. He said the FDA's goal was to increase consumer awareness of the quantity of added sugars in foods. In maple country of Ver mont the country's larg est producer of the sweet stuff the congressional delegation and state's at torney general urged the FDA commissioner to reconsider the added sug ars label for maple syrup, with Attorney General T.J. Donovan calling on Ver monters to comment on the FDA's plan. The American Honey Producers Association said the plan could lead to consumers wondering what's being added to pure honey, when nothing is. "I applaud the FDA's de cision to hear Vermonters on this issue," Donovan said on Tuesday. "We all agree that consumers have a right to know what is in their food, especially when it comes to their health and safety," he said. "And, we also agree that common sense is a virtue." Maple syrup producer Roger Brown of Slope side Syrup in Richmond, Vermont, who has been a leading voice on the issue, said the FDA's response to the feedback is a good step. "I applaud the FDA for acknowledging the rel evance of the issue and the need to re-examine it," he said. "I am grateful that this question and this issue has been a part of a pretty broad conversation and has generated a lot of support from the maple com munity, from Vermonters and maple fans around the country.

Saturday, June 23, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E13 VOLGOGRAD, Russia (AP) Nearly 60 years since it changed its name to Volgograd, the Russian city once called Stalingrad and its bloody history loom large even in the midst of the fun and foot ball of the World Cup. Stalingrad, the name of the city on the Volga river between 1925 and 1961, is now often shorthand for one of the most vio lent battles in history. The exact death toll can never be known, but historians believe about a million people from both sides died that savage winter of 1942-3 when the Nazi war machine was stopped from crossing the Volga, then surrounded and defeated. The city was basically reduced to rubble and its modern-day residents will forever remember the sac rices of their ancestors. "It's sacred for us because in every family in the Volgograd region, there are people who died in the battle and we mustn't forget about it and every year we do patriotic action and do some lessons for children so they know all about it," said 21-year-old Daria Kolomyichenko. "It's our history and we are very proud." To visitors, particularly from nations that fought against the Nazis, the monuments around the city especially the 85-meter (280-foot) statue known as "The Mother land Calls!" are also a reminder that the sacri ces of Russians at Stal ingrad were crucial to the Allies winning World War II. With Britain and Rus sia feuding politically, the English team played their rst match of the World Cup in Volgograd. "To see the statue and have an understanding of the history reminds you that some things are even bigger than football and that's good perspective for us all," said England coach Gareth Southgate. The battle is a constant presence in the city of around 1 million. While the monuments loom large in the Hero City the honor granted by the then Soviet Union. Volgograd is now a thriving regional center, bustling with at tractions, parks and visi tors. There is more than enough to appreciate to ignore the occasional swarms of ies and mos quitoes that hounded fans as England beat Tunisia 2-1 at Volgograd Arena Monday night The stadium was con structed on the banks of the Volga and at the bot tom of the Mamayev Kurgan, the hill that was savagely fought over by the Red Army and the Na zis. Sometimes changing hands several times on any particular day, it is said the ground on the hill was so soaked in blood that the springs were poisoned. No wonder the Soviet authorities more or less enshrined the hill's status as sacred. A collection of memorials and outsized structures on the hill in clude a granite pool, an eternal ame and mass graves. But it's the sculp ture on the top that draws one's breath. The Motherland Calls casts a long shadow across the city. England fans also joined up with dignitaries to lay a wreath to commemorate the dead. "I'm into football and you're into football, but when you have an event like this, you realize it's more, there's more than just football," said fan Bil ly Grant. Football is a game that perhaps unites the world more than any other, and certainly more than any political or religious creed. Russia may be facing in ternational censure for its annexation of the Crimea peninsular from Ukraine, for its alleged role in the poisoning of an ex-Rus sian spy and his daughter in southern England and meddling in the U.S. elec tion, but visitors from all over the world are remind ed of the magnitude of the nation's role in World War II, regardless of what one thinks of Josef Stalin. The Panorama Museum in Volgograd, built next to the gutted remains of a ruined mill, showcases an array of tributes to the city including a sword from King George VI that was presented to Stalin by Brit ish Prime Minister Win ston Churchill in 1943, and the Legion d'Honneur that French President Francois Mitterand bequeathed to the city in 1984. The horrors of the Battle of Stalingrad are clear, but there's no antagonism towards the Germans. In a cemetery some 40 miles northwest of Volgo grad in Rossoshka, there's a dignied cemetery for German soldiers who per ished at Stalingrad and nearby Rostov-on-Don. Local historian Svetlana Kostrykina writes in a local travel guide that there 52,000 of them are buried in two mass graves and that another 120,000 Ger mans thought to be miss ing are inscribed on rect angular panels around the site, "like huge dice lost in the steppe." Vitaly Danilkin, as griz zled a 72-year-old as you are likely to see, cares for the site as well as a Soviet cemetery on the other side of the road. Cutting the grass in the summer, and clearing the snow in win ter, Danilkin is always on the lookout for war-related artifacts. His 43-year-old son, Alexei, with the per mission of the state, runs a small team that does exactly that and is alert to anyone illegally looking for memorabilia there's a big black market for Stalingrad-related helmets, guns, medals and tags. Vitaly, who has been do ing his job for three years, said he's the only who would do it for "only 7,000 rubles a month" when he was hired. He has since gotten a raise to 9,000 ru bles ($140) a month. "Someone has to do it," said Vitaly. For those few who still have a connection with the battle, the pain remains. Just a few months ago, Vitaly saw an elderly lady descend into oods of tears as she kissed one of the portraits in a small museum room on the side of the Soviet cemetery. As for the World Cup, Vitaly is not so interested but he clapped when Rus sia won its rst match against Saudi Arabia 5-0. "I'm a patriot," he said. "I love my Russia." Stalingrad, it's clear, was full of patriots.
