By Rachel Christian Staff Writer e economy is healthy. e unemployment rate is low. Some states have even raised their minimum wage. But for many workingclass residents in Osceola County, stagnant wages and rising housing costs have made paying the rent on time a monthly miracle. A minimum wage employee in Kissimmee would need to work an average of 86 hours a week in order to aord a modest one-bedroom apartment at Fair Market Rate, according to Out of Reach, an annual report released this month by the National Low Income Housing Coalition. Rental costs matter in Osceola County because, as the report shows, 40 percent of residents are renters. The Fair Market Rate for a local one-bedroom apartment is $919 and a two-bedroom fetches $1,098. A Kissimmee worker would need to earn at least $21.50 an hour, or $36,760 a year, to afford that one-bedroom dwelling without spending more than 30 percent of their income on housing costs. Yet, some of the areas most popular jobs By Rachel Christian Staff Writer For years, Osceola Countys 325 paid reghters have had to make a 25-mile trek to Mid Florida Tech in South Orlando to complete vital certications and training. Not any more. County commissioners and re rescue ocials gathered Tuesday morning to celebrate the future home of Osceola Countys rst re safety training center o Clay Street in Kissimmee. The new 11-acre site was introduced with ceremonial silver spades and honorary hard hats.

Page 2 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, June 30, 2018 The 4th of July is a busy boating holiday with Floridas appealing waterways beckoning in-state and out-of-state boaters to enjoy its many charms, including the manatees. Save the Manatee Club urges residents and visitors to watch out for manatees throughout the holiday and beyond. The largest known cause of manatee mortality is from collisions with boats. Additionally, most living manatees have been hit by boats many manatees have been hit multiple times and most suffer through these injuries that can negatively affect their ability to eat, swim, mate, and take care of their young. Manatees must surface to breathe and prefer shallow waters. Any boat, moving fast, can injure and kill a manatee if there is not enough clearance for the boats hull to pass safely over a manatees back. Slowing down in manatee habitat is one of the best ways to reduce the risk of watercraft-related injury and death. In order to safeguard manatees and to curb the number of manatee injuries and deaths from boat collisions, Save the Manatee Club offers a number of free public awareness materials to help boaters protect manatees. One of these is a Boating Safety Packet, which contains a weatherproof boat decal with a hotline number for reporting manatee injuries, deaths, or harassment. resulting in manatee harassment. Remember, it is always important to report a sick, injured, or orphaned manatee to the FWC. Heres how to recognize if something is wrong: A manatee floating high in the water and is unable to submerge may indicate a serious problem. An adult manatee not resting or traveling rapidly should surface to breathe every 2-3 minutes. Manatees entangled in crab traps or fishing line should be reported to the FWC do not try to cut the entanglement. A pink scar or open wound on a manatee needs to be reported. Thrashing and splashing manatees are usually a mating herd and need their space, however a lone manatee that has beached itself should be reported to the FWC do not push the manatee back into the water. A small, lone manatee with no larger manatees around could be an orphan and the FWC should be called at 1-888404-FWCC (3992). We greatly appreciate the help of the boating community to be extra vigilant on Floridas waterways during the July 4th holiday and every day, says Patrick Rose, the Clubs Executive Director & Aquatic Biologist. The risks and threats to the manatees survival remain uncontrolled and accelerating, and we need everyone to be good stewards and help ensure that manatees continue to roam free for f uture generations to enjoy. The free public awareness and education materials are available by emailing Save the Manatee Club at education@ savethemanatee.org or by calling toll free at 1-800-432-JOIN (5646).

Rick Scott recently approved the preservation of more than 8,300 acres through four cost-effective conservation easements, which prevent future development of the land and allow agricultural operations to continue to contribute to Floridas economy. The purchases are part of the Rural and Family Lands Protection Program, where the state partners with Floridas farmers and ranchers to preserve active agricultural operations and their immense economic and environmental benefits. Todays partnerships increase the total land preserved by the program to over 50,660 acres through 45 conservation easements. Since 2011, the current Governor and Cabinet have approved the acquisition of 38 projects totaling more than 47,000 acres, a more than 1,000-percent increase in acres preserved by the program. We must continue to prioritize the conservation of our agricultural lands and world-renowned natural spaces, said Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam. Through the Rural and Family Lands Protection Program, we partner with farmers and ranchers to preserve the invaluable pieces of our rural economy and environment to help preserve what makes Florida such a special place to live. Florida agriculture has an overall economic impact estimated at more than $120 billion annually, making it the states second largest industry. The agriculture industry supports more than 2 million jobs in Florida. For more information about the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, visit FreshFrom Florida.com. Alligators become more active during warm weather months, and its not uncommon to see them throughout the state. Most interactions consist of seeing alligators at a distance. However, if you have a concern about a specific alligator, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) urges you to call their toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWCGATOR (392-4286). The FWC places the highest priority on public safety, said Eric Sutton, FWCs executive director. When someone calls our Nuisance Alligator Hotline to report an alligator they believe poses a threat, we dispatch one of our contracted nuisance alligator trappers to resolve the situation. Although alligator bite incidents resulting in serious injury are rare in Florida, the FWC recommends taking precautions when having fun in and around the water. Alligators inhabit all 67 counties in Florida and can be found anywhere there is standing water. Reduce the chances of conflicts with alligators by swimming only in designated swimming areas during daylight hours. Also keep pets on a leash and away from the water. Because alligators control their body temperature by basking in the sun, they may be easily observed. However, the FWC urges people to keep their distance if they see one. And never feed alligators because it is dangerous and illegal. The FWC also works to keep Floridians and visitors informed, including providing advice about Living with Alligators. Learn more about alligators at MyFWC.com/Alligator. FWC offers additional BearWise funding to reduce conictsFor a third year in a row, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is inviting local governments to apply for BearWise funding to help their communities reduce human-bear conflicts. The FWC will focus on providing fund ing to local governments with BearWise ordinances that require residents and businesses to keep garbage secure from bears. The funding will offset the costs for residents and businesses to use bear-resistant equipment to secure their garbage from bears. Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Legislature appropriated the FWC $500,000 in BearWise funding starting July 1. These new funds will allow us to expand our work with local governments to make it easier for people to avoid conflicts with bears, said Kipp Frohlich, Director of the FWCs Division of Habitat and Species Conservation. The FWC invites counties and cities to submit applications to be considered for funding. Preference will be given to applications from areas with BearWise ordinances and to large projects benefiting a large number of people. Local governments are strongly encouraged to consult with FWC staff to discuss options and implementation before submitting their applications. The FWC will assist any local government considering passing an ordinance, including providing example ordinances. Since 2007, the FWC has provided almost $1.6 million in BearWise funding to residents and businesses in the 16 counties with the highest levels of human-bear conflicts in Florida. Funds have been used to purchase over 10,000 bear-resistant trash cans, 9,700 sets of hardware to secure regular trash cans, and 160 dumpsters modified to keep bears out. For a community to be considered, the FWC must receive applications before close of business on Aug. 1, 2018. Applications should be emailed to BearManagement@MyFWC.com or mailed to: The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Attention: Bear Management Program, 620 South Meridian St., 6B, Tallahassee, FL 32399. For additional details on the funding and application process, visit MyFWC. com/BearWise. For the News-GazetteThere are many people who are of the notion that the only good bugs are dead ones. This belief is far from the truth; in fact, it has proven that most bugs are beneficial and are not harmful. One has to be very mindful that there are actual insect imposters that are harmful; they resemble the beneficial insects and pretend to be the good guys. One insect imposter that came to mind is the Mexican bean beetle, which is one of the worst enemies to our vegetable garden but often mistaken for a lady beetle which is beneficial. In addition, the bigeyed bugs are beneficial and are often identified as chinch bug which feed on grass roots. Having knowledge of this information, it is therefore important that we properly identify all bugs before taking any action. If the landscapers or homeowners are unable to properly identify an insect, they can bring it to the UF/IFAS Extension in Osceola County for a free identification. The extension agent will give the clientele the best recommendation for an effective control. Furthermore, when considering controlling landscape pests, always keep a threshold level in mind. First thing to remember is that pests cause aesthetic damage and economic loss. Therefore, ask yourself how much damage you can tolerate. Simply because there is an insect does not mean that there is an outbreak and pesticides should be applied. If you believe that you cannot tolerate the level of pest infestation, then you should turn to the best control measure, an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach. It is important to point out that IPM approach combines management approaches for greater effectiveness of pest control. Another key point is that IPM approach consists of four categories: biological, cultural, mechanical, and chemical. Biological control uses natural enemies to control pests. One example of biological control is using parasitic wasp to control tomato horn worm. Cultural control uses cultural practice to reduce pest establishment and survival, a good example that comes to mind is practicing sanitation in the landscape or garden by not having trash or debris that insects can use as habitat. Mechanical and physical control kills pests directly or makes the environment unsuitable. Using a trap to control rodents is a good example of mechanical control. Finally, chemical control is simply using pesticides. First thing to remember is that with IPM, using chemical as a form of control should be the last resort and should be combined with other approaches for a more effective control. It is also important to note that pesticides should be applied in a manner that will not harm the environment and human. Each time pesticide is applied to the landscape it has the potential to kill both harmful and beneficial insects. Another factor to consider when using pesticide is, timing of application; pesticide should not be applied when plants are flowering. This will result in killing pollinators such as bees and butterflies. FWC photo by Tim Donovan.

Page 4 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, June 30, 2018 By Peggy Choudhry I wanted to thank the News-Gazette for a fantastic article: (Choudhry fails to get city support for crisis center published on June 23). is article detailed and highlighted the true questions and conversations we should be having as we move forward in creating this One Stop Care Crisis Center for the betterment of our county and citizens. Unfortunately, at this City Commission meeting, Kissimmee Mayor Jose Alvarez asked the supporters and guests that were present, if they would prefer to just raise their hands if they support eorts to this center in order to save time. We were also told not to be disruptive which we learned included clapping aer a speaker. I was happy to see that voters and supporters of the One Stop Care Crisis Center choose to speak and wanted their thoughts heard by the city commission. is only led some of us to believe that some members of the commission may have already had their minds made up (no matter what we said) but this article thankfully brings many important points to the table. I look forward to discussing these points onJuly 16with our Osceola County Commission Board as well as on all the other media that has invited me to shed light on this beforehand.I want to assure the voters that as an elected ocial we should always have the best interest in mind and not depend on other ocials from other boards to make decisions for you.I say this because the article clearly identied Mayor Alvarez expressing to us that in order for him to make a decision he needs to hear rst from ocials in the county. So it surprised me to see any elected ocial not speak up for their voters and instead allow another ocial to make a decision for them. I will not do this, I will protect my voters as I should and speak up for them as Vice Mayor Wanda Rentas and Commission Olga Gonzalez did on the day where it counted most. I want to thank them for having their own minds and defend the rights of the people. ank you again Commissioner Olga Gonzalez and Vice-Mayor Wanda Rentas for the vote to provide services to your voters and listening to what they were requesting. You both showed courage in a pre-determined political climate. Again, as elected ocials this is nothing personal, this is for the betterment of our community and we are addressing these issues as such. I pledge that I will continue to be the peoples biggest supporter and not be afraid to address challenging issues with any board.I am a person to do what I say I will do, not just during elections but all the time. For those who want to reach me and/ or support these eorts in any way please call my oce at 407-742-2000.

Saturday, June 30, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 5 062818.TNG RENTContinued from Page 1 including tourism, hospitality and transportation didnt earn anywhere near $21.50 an hour. Two industries trade, transportation and utilities and hospitality dominate the Osceola County workforce, with about 41 percent of average annual employment coming from these two industries alone, according to the Florida Legislative Office of Economic and Demographic Research. Trade and transportation workers earn an average salary of $27,944 a year, while hospitality employees make $22,495 annually. Two-hs of Osceola County workers fall at least $9,265 short of affording a one-bedroom apartment without being cost burdened by it. Over the last year, local government leaders have taken steps to address the needs gap in Osceola County, including modifying the comprehensive plan and waiving mobility fees for aordable housing projects. Still, 80 percent of permits granted in the last year were awarded to single family units homes too expensive for individuals earning less than $35,000 a year to afford, said Susan Caswell, the assistant community development administrator for Osceola County. Caswell went before the Osceola County School Board last month to discuss local growth patterns and steps ocials are taking to solve housing issues in the community. She found that about 70 percent of Osceola County residents earning $20,000 to $35,000 a year are cost burdened by rent, with 30 percent of those residents spending over half their income on housing costs. She added that although the county and city have spearheaded affordable housing projects in recent years, the number of units produced is a drop in the bucket to the growing need in the community. In the last five years, weve provided 852 units through our housing funding, Caswell told board members. But when you compare that to the 27,000 in need, you can see that were never really going to catch up. Cameron Preserve is the countys latest eort to combat affordable housing issues. e 100-unit complex oers one-, twoand threebedroom apartments with rents ranging from $355$781 a month. The county broke ground on the project last year and began accepting pre-screening applications on June 15. Units are only available to Osceola County families living in motels, people classied as homeless by the Department of Housing and Urban Development or individuals enrolled in a Transitional Housing program with the Community Hope Center. In two weeks, officials say they have already received 318 applications for Cameron Preserve. By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Residents of Buenaventura Lakes will soon be able to explore Osceola Countys latest dog park, slated to open by early fall. Located o Royal Palm Parkway, the new fully enclosed 5-acre dog park will feature two separate entrances for large and small canine pets. e site will also include water fountains, benches, small shaded pavilions and special water stations to rinse o muddy paws when the play time is over. County Public Works Director Bob Mindick said the new park was a way to utilize county-owned property le vacant for over a decade in a way that benets Kissimmee residents. It also capitalizes on the growing popularity of Osceola Countys three other dog destinations in Poinciana, Triangle Park and Shingle Creek, o Bass Road. It seems like as soon as we open one, it lls up, Mindick said. We want to try and add more and spread them around so residents in more areas can enjoy them. e dog park is nestled into a residential area that once served as Pavilion Park. It shut down about 13 years ago due to late-night parties and neighborhood noise complaints. Creating a dog park that is only open from sunrise to sunset aims to alleviate those issues, Mindick said. e new BVL park isnt equipped with parking, so it will almost exclusively serve residents within walking distance of the site. Parking wasnt an option due to the projects residential location, Mindick said. The estimated cost of the project is $150,000, with fencing and landscaping improvements making up a bulk of the cost. e money will be taken out of the public works general fund. The county saved funds by utilizing electric and water hook-ups still connected from Pavilion Park, Mindick said. All dog breeds are permitted at the location, though dogs must be well behaved to use the facility. A set of rules and guidelines will be posted, but otherwise, residents are expected to follow proper dog park etiquette. People who go to dog parks are usually really good at policing themselves, Mindick said. We rarely have any issues because people tend to look out for one another and make sure rules are being followed. e park will be open from sunrise to sunset with an electric-lock fence that will automatically open at the appropriate times. Work on the park began about four months ago and is slated to wrap up in late summer or early fall, Mindick said.New dog park to open in Buenaventura Lakes SUBMITTED PHOTOA new dog park is currently being built in Buenaventura Lakes.

But theres still more work to be done. e University of Central Florida alum said the latest step toward advancing civil rights for all Floridians would be approving Amendment 4 on the upcoming November ballot. e measure would restore voting rights for people who have a felony conviction on their record excluding murder or sexual assault and will be decided by voters through a proposed constitutional amendment. Floridas current system only allows for the restoration of a tiny fraction of applicants. It also disproportionately affects black residents, who are five times as more likely to be incarcerated than white residents, according to statistics. Gov. Rick Scott, whos now running for U.S. Senate, has sought to concentrate executive power over the process but voters ultimately will decide on Election Day. Key to getting the initiative on the ballot which required more than 1 million signatures from registered voters in the state was advocates partnering with corporations that are ideologically and scally aligned, Bracy said. Government cant do it alone. ey cant make our children and community great, said Bracy, whose grandmother was among the first students to integrate Gainesville High School in Gainesville, home of the University of Florida. His grandfather established the first chapter of the NAACP in Orange County. We must inspire greatness within ourselves, he said. e young senator joked with the crowd about the fictional African nation featured this year in the movie Black Panther. How can we create our Wakanda? It starts, he said, when everyone can say to themselves: Im great. I can make a dierence. I can change the world. The NAACP also honored the following Osceola County residents: Mary Paul Berrian, a retired Navy lieutenant commander and St. Cloud High graduate, Distinguished Achievement Award. Ann Y. Tyler, a local activist and retired educator, Lifetime Achievement Award. Kissimmee City Commissioner Angela Eady, a St. Cloud native and lifelong Osceola County resident, Outstanding Community Service Award. NEWS-GAZETTE PHOTO/CHARLIE REEDThe National Association for the Advancement of Colored People held its annual dinner at the Kissimmee Civic Center on June 23. Man gets 5 years for gun dealingA Kissimmee man was recently sentenced to ve years in prison for manufacturing and dealing in rearms without a license. U.S. District Judge Gregory A. Presnell sentenced Hector Luis Santiago-Jorge, 48, Kissimmee, to the prison term, which was the maximum penalty, for manufacturing and dealing in firearms without a federal license. The court also ordered that SantiagoJorge forfeit 10 AR-15 type rearms and 168 rounds of ammunition that were seized from his residence by federal law enforcement ocers. Santiago-Jorge had pleaded guilty on March 5. According to court documents, between November 2016 and October 2017, Santiago-Jorge manufactured more than 200 rearms, most of which were AR-15 type weapons. He then sold many of these firearms to purchasers in Puerto Rico. The firearms manufactured by SantiagoJorge, none of which had a serial number, are commonly known as ghost guns because they are dicult for law enforcement to trace. This criminal thought he could circumvent the laws in place that make our communities safer from weapons trafficking, said HSI Tampa Special Agent in Charge James C. Spero. But thanks to the hard work of HSI and our partners, this sentencing should put criminals on notice that we will fully investigate anyone threatening the safety of our citizens. is case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcements Homeland Security Investigations and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
Saturday, June 30, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 7 By Ken Jackson Staff Writer At the midpoint of the season, the Florida State League gives all its ball clubs that struggled in the standings in the regular season like the hometown Florida Fire Frogs new life by crowning a firsthalf champion and then resetting the standings. Fire Frogs Manager Luis Salazar just wishes his club would take advantage of its new life. After going 29-37 to nish h in the Northern Division in the rst half, Florida, the Atlanta Braves aliate, dropped ve of its rst six games of the second half, and must dig out of an early hole in order to win the second half and make the playos. e Clearwater Threshers (Philadelphia Phillies) have jumped out to a 6-0 second-half start in the North. e slow start has not been without a big eort from the starting pitching, especially this week. On Tuesday, righthander Ian Anderson tossed a quality start, giving up two runs and six hits with six strikeouts in six innings, but the oense could not make a winner out of him in a 5-1 loss to the Dunedin Blue Jays. Right elder Garrison Schwartz, who led o the fourth inning with a double, scampered home on a wild pitch to briey tie the game at 1. On Wednesday, the Fire Frogs could not get key hits in key at-bats in a 3-2 10-inning loss to Dunedin in a camp day matinee game that started at 11 a.m. wellattended by several groups of youngsters. Florida was 2-for-16 with runners in scoring position and left 14 men on base, including leaving them loaded in the second, sixth and ninth innings. Dunedin scored the first run of the pitchers duel between Floridas Joey Wentz, whos rounding back into form after a stint on the disabled list, and the Blue Jays Angel Perdomo, in the top of the eighth inning, but Florida tied it at 1-1 thanks to the bat of Braxton Davidson, who launched a mammoth home run to right eld; his team-leading 12th homer (third in the FSL) should be landing this weekend, and apologies to any windows put out at Osceola School District headquarters across Bill Beck Boulevard. The game went to the extra frame, where Dunedin scored twice, but Florida did not go quietly, as Jordan Rodgers drove in Schwartz with a double to put the tying run at second with no out, but tting the theme of the day, the Fire Frogs couldnt get the fortunechanging hit needed. Wentzs start (six innings, three hits, no runs) was largely wasted. Over his last two starts, Wentz has NEWS-GAZETTE PHOTO/CINDY JOINTSkip Stowers (left) and Mark Holasek show off their catch from the Wednesday Night Shootout out of Lake Toho.

The better news for Kowgirls Coach George Coffey and his staff is that Thompson and those teammates are all sophomores. And, this past season, a sophomore led them all. Thompson, the teams shortstop, was Osceolas oensive leader, and one of a host of emotional leaders, for the 18-8 Kowgirls who won another district championship thanks in part to her game-winning double in the District 9A-7 championship game, a 4-3 win over Davenport Ridge. She produced in plenty other big moments last season, which is why shes the 2017 Osceola NewsGazette Soball Player of the Year. ompson batted .509, leading Osceola in that and every other oensive category, only tying for the team lead in doubles. Defensively, she teamed with second baseman Leyla Laboy, center elder Kendal Thompson and catcher Maria Nunez all sophomores to make the Kowgirls strong up the middle. Rather than get caught up in her stats last season, ompson said she focused on each at bat and putting together wins, and the season took care of itself.

College in Grand Rapids. Father Daniel Glass and Bulldogs Coach Ettie Singleton were on hand. By Ken Jackson Sports Editor While setting himself up for future college success on the volleyball court, St. Cloud Highs Matthew Glass may also be creating a path for the Bulldogs boys volleyball program. Glass, the first college signee for the Bulldogs program since it reappeared six seasons ago under Coach Ettie Singleton, will be part of the rst mens team at Aquinas (Mich.) College, as the Grand Rapids school adds intercollegiate mens volleyball to its list of teams. Rick Schroeder, the current Aquinas womens volleyball coach, will also serve as head coach of the mens program. Glass spent two years as an outside hitter for Singleton and the Bulldogs aer entering high school focusing on, then giving up, basketball. When my junior year ended I knew I wanted to play volleyball in college, because I enjoyed it so much, Glass said. Im excited about being a part of a new program, but Im also really nervous because this is a big step. Glass said he submitted his highlight film to a recruiting application, where it was seen by the Aquinas coaching sta. at led to an invite and a visit to the Michigan campus, one that Glass said he felt at home at. It has great facilities and staff, and I really liked the coaches, he said. I want to major in accounting and get my CPA license, and they have a ne program for that. Glass still attends open gym at St. Cloud in fact his signing was Monday right before one where he said hes working on his passing to all parts of the court and being in the right spots. Coach Singleton said Aquinas will be a great t for Glass as a rst-year program. Hes coming into a program with no established starters and a clean slate, so its a program where hell get playing time right away, she said. We never had to beg him to stay at practice, he works so hard and hes gotten better since he came in as a junior. Hes very coachable and is able to learn new oenses. Im very excited for him. Aquinas will be the fourth Wolverine Hoosier Athletic Conference member to add volleyball. Mens Volleyball at the NAIA level is currently labeled as an Emerging Sport, with the goal of becoming a full fledged Championship Sport in the near future. A total of 31 NAIA institutions across the country currently oer the sport of mens volleyball with the goal of qualifying for the National Invitational Tournament in mid-April. St. Cloud qualified for the district tournament, won by state runner-up Celebration, in Glass senior year, and he hopes that and his signing will make boys volleyball a higher-prole sport at St. Cloud. Id love to see it get going, aer we started it up, he said.Matthew Glass signs on to play for new volleyball program at Aquinas College in MichiganI didnt really look at my numbers, in fact I actually thought I started the season slow, she said. I worked harder aer practice to work on my mechanics. I tried to be a leader on the eld, maybe not the most vocal o the eld, but on it with the eight players with me on the eld. Coffey said he wasnt as much surprised with Thompsons success this year as he was impressed. She played a ton last year (as a freshman) and that group ought to be strong again, he said. Audie has the maturity level to realize what it takes to be a leader. We hope, with her, that group leads just as well for the next two years. She as all the tools: oense, defense, game intelligence and, above all she loves the game. She has a passion that other kids dont show. After the Kowboys advanced to the Region 3 nals in 2017 in a pleasant surprise when Thompson and her classmates were freshman, they were equally surprised, though unpleasantly, to be handed a lopsided 14-3 loss in the regional quarterfinals this year by Oviedo. Despite the outcome, Thompson went 3-for-4 and scored a run. It still hurt, but it feels a little better knowing you did all you could do and le it all out there, she said. We lost Maria (Nunez, the catcher, to an injury) in the district final, and losing Maria actually brought us together to try to win so she could play again this season. Our defense just wasnt there that night. ompson said the team didnt talk about the season ending for a few days, but in workouts since have already started discussing next season. We know we should have a solid team next year, she said. And a solid junior season for Thompson and her classmates awaits. THOMPSONContinued from Page 7. Hes coming into a program with no established starters and a clean slate, so its a program where hell get playing time right away. COACH SINGLETON

Not Pictured: Chelsea FleuridoIs creeping indigo creeping into your Osceola County pastures By Brittany Justesen Creeping indigo is a broadleaf non-native legume that came from Africa 90 years ago. e recent rise of awareness has concerned many Florida horse owners. It is found throughout Central and North Florida, becoming the dominant herb in some pastures. Creeping indigo can be found in high trac areas, such as pathways, roadsides, or heavily grazed pastures. Plant Description Creeping indigo is a prostrate plant (branches lie low to the ground) with a shallow crown. Stems can grow up to 6 feet long with ve to seven alternate leaets. Flowers form at the base of the leaets forming numerous pink to red blooms. e perennial root of the plant is dicult to pull up by hand because of its 2-foot taproot. Creeping indigo is spread by the seeds of the plant. e plant produces clusters of 1-inch long downward pointing seed pods containing four to eight seeds. Numerous fuzzy hairs can be found on the leaves, stem, and seed pods. Toxins ere are two toxins in creeping indigo that can cause neurologic and nonneurologic symptoms to all livestock, but horses are more susceptible. The progression of symptoms will present itself days to weeks later. Equine deaths have been reported in recent years and can potentially be life threatening to all livestock that consume the plant. 3-Nitropropionate acid (3-NPA) causes the irreversible neurologic symptoms, including depression, head pressing in a corner of the stall, compulsive walking, and crossing of the limbs with a crablike gait. e eects of 3-NPA are non-reversible and the toxin metabolizes quickly making it hard to detect in the blood serum. Indospicine is the toxic agent of the plant that causes non-neurologic symptoms, which include hyper salivation, dehydration, light sensitivity, weight loss, pale mucous membranes, labored breathing, corneal ulcerations, ulcers in the mouth and tongue, and digital pulses without laminitis. There is no effective treatment for creeping indigo poisoning. Quickly remove the horse from the pasture where creeping indigo is present and consult your veterinarian. Prevention and management Monthly scouting year round is necessary to prevent creeping indigo from becoming a problem in your pastures. If you need See Indigo, Page 12.

My parents and I adopted a 3-year-old, mixed lab, female dog last August from a rescue group in South Carolina. At rst, Dorie was very timid and thin, but she has gained a lot of weight and is not at all active. She prefers to either lay on her bed or on the back deck in the sun. Although our huge yard is fenced, she doesnt like to explore. She refuses to walk on a leash, and when I hook her up to it, she sits or lies down. We stand her up, bribe her with treats, but she just plops down. I dont believe the dog knows how to play because she isnt interested in balls, Frisbees or tugs. Dorie can wait hours to urinate, even when brought outside several times a day. She seems to be drinking ample water and never has had an accident. She is very fearful of the car and when we need to take her in it, my parents have to carry her to the car. She also gets carsick and anxious. Perhaps it was the long ride from South Carolina to Long Island that made her this way. Dorie has a wonderful disposition, but as you can see, she can be stubborn. I want to play with her and take her for walks, so she wont gain any more weight. Should we worry, because she doesnt urinate frequently? Can you please help me? Emma, Oakdale, NY Dear Emma, I dont think Dorie is being stubborn. I think she may be older than 3 years old or have a health problem, like a thyroid condition, that is making her lethargic. Ask your parents to take her to a veterinarian for an exam and blood work and get a second opinion on her age. If she doesnt have a health problem or is not an older dog, then the added weight can undoubtedly make her lethargic and uncomfortable, especially in her joints. She might be more motivated to move if you reduce her weight first with a high-quality calorie-restricted diet. Your veterinarian can recommend a prescription dog food, but there are several available at pet stores. Regarding her limited urination during the day, it may just be a habit she developed with her previous family. If the doctor finds no health problem, there is nothing to worry about there. As for exploring and playing, if her former family never played with her, she will need to learn how to play from you. Put a few pieces of low-calorie dog food into a simple puzzle toy, like a Kong, with a little peanut butter to tempt her. Hopefully, she will play with the toy to get the food pieces out. She may never race around the yard looking for toys, but if you can use puzzle toys to keep her mind busy and engaged, she may eventually become a more engaged and active pet. Dear Laurie, My husband and I have four cats and a dog. One of these cats is a female, spayed, 9 years old, and licks everything. Floors, walls, bags, especially me. She lays on the keyboard tray while I am on the computer. If my hand is anywhere near her face, she licks me. She licks so much she makes sore spots on me. Yesterday, she was licking my leg. I dont really mind it until it starts to hurt. I asked a vet about this behavior once, and all he said was I dont know. Can you give me any insight as to why she does this? None of the other cats do this. Laurie, via email Dear Laurie, Excessive licking is not uncommon in cats. Cats lick to groom themselves, but sometimes, things like boredom, stress, pain and even nutritional deciencies can lead to excessive licking of themselves as well as other things around the home. Regardless of the reason, however, it can become an obsessive-compulsive behavior that can be dicult to break, if not treated. Talk to your new veterinarian (hint, hint) about temporary medication that can help interrupt obsessivecompulsive behaviors. While on the medication, make sure your cat is not stressed by anything new in the home. Also, engage her in a lot more one-on-one play time to reduce her compulsive need to lick. Get some toys that encourage her to use her hunting behaviors or a laser light she can chase around a room. Exercise for her body can help reduce this compulsive behavior.INDIGOContinued from Page 11 help identifying creeping indigo you can contact your County Extension Agent. GrazonNext HL is the effective herbicide for creeping indigo control in pastures. Its active ingredient is aminopyralid. Broadcast rate is 24 ounces per acres and spottreatment rate is 0.5 to 1.0 ounces per gallon of water. Both of these rates will give excellent control, but once sprayed, the dead plant can retain its toxicity and should be removed. Retreatment will be necessary. Do not spread manure or use for compost because of the residual from the spray and possible seed dispersal. Brittany Justesen is a livestock agent with UF/IFAS Extension Osceola County.

Saturday, June 30, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 13 061618.SNG By Jill Schlesinger Remember how freaked out we all were nine months ago after the Equifax data breach? Its easy to forget. When a news event flares up, we pay attention and then as the issue recedes, we can get a bit complacent. Thats why the recently enacted European Union General Data Protection Regulation gives us a perfect excuse for a refresher on cyber security and privacy. You likely received a slew of emails at the end of May those had to do with GDPR, a new regulation that was meant to give EU citizens more control over the data thats collected by online services. But given that most big U.S. companies do business in the EU and do not want to maintain separate policies globally, the new rules will likely affect U.S. consumers as well. GDPR requires companies to be more explicit about how your personal data is used and imposes penalties on companies that are not in compliance with it. One interesting aspect of the rule is that it provides European consumers with the right to be forgotten, which means that an EU resident can tell a company to stop sharing her data with third parties and also gives her the right to erasure, which means that she can essentially say, I am dead to you; quit using my data and erase me from your les. Just to be clear: is is what a European consumer can do, but, according to Linda Sherry, director of national priorities at Consumer Action, As global rms adapt to the EUs data protection law, were hopeful that all consumers will benet from stricter data security and gain a reasonable measure of control over their personal information that so many others prosper from the EUs strong regulation. But its still on you to take privacy seriously and to guard your information. I have oered some of these tips in previous columns, but I have added a few new ones from the National Cyber Security Alliance: Update and conduct regular backups on your systems. Dont click on links willy-nilly. Even if you think you know the sender, be cautious about clicking on email links. When in doubt, delete it. Protect your Password. Change logins and passwords monthly, use password generators and sign up for two-factor authentication. Beware of oversharing on social media anddo not assume that messaging services are secure. Refrain from providing businesses with your Social Security number simply because they ask for it. (Medicare recipients should be careful, because SSNs are still on many cards. New cards without your most precious identier have started to be mailed as of April, but the process wont be completed until April 2019.) Dont provide personal information over the phone, through snail mail or via the internet unless you have initiated the contact or you know with whom you are dealing. Shop carefully. Dont send nancial information on unsecured wireless networks and when making purchases, use a credit card, which has more fraud protections under federal law than debit cards or online payment services.A refresher on cyber security Jill Schlesinger, CFP, is CBS News Business Analyst.

With their brilliance and glowing trails through the darkness, sparklers attract both children and adults on special occasions like Independence Day or during backyard barbecues or parties. Even though sparklers can be fun, people who intend to use sparklers are urged to treat these devices with respect and caution. The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that sparklers can burn at 2,000 F, which is as hot as a blow torch, and denitely hot enough to melt some metals. Sparklers are responsible for 9 percent of all reworks burns and other injuries, warns the CPSC. Sparklers are created by hardening flammable chemicals on the end of a wire or a wooden stick. Unlike other fireworks, sparklers burn slowly due to their chemical composition. is makes sparklers seemingly safer for youngsters to handle. But parents and other guardians may want to reconsider. Emergency rooms repeatedly treat burn injuries to hands and faces resulting from sparkler usage. Kids may be tempted to show sparklers o to their friends and then run and lose their balance or wave the sparkler around and not know others are close by. When using sparklers, heed the following safety tips from the National Council on Fireworks Safety. Ensure that sparklers are legal where you live prior to purchase. Sparklers are best handled by people ages 12 and older. Children younger than 12 require extreme supervision. Everyone handling sparklers should wear closedtoe shoes, and not ip-ops or sandals, to protect their feet from sparks. Wear eye protection, such as safety goggles. Leather gloves or those lined with Kevlar can help protect hands against burns. Each person should have his or her own sparkler stick. Only light one at a time. Maintain a distance of six feet from one another while sparklers are blazing. Even though it can seem festive to wave a sparkler or make circles through the air, doing so increases the risk for injury. Remain in an upright position when holding a lit sparkler. Tossing or throwing the sparkler is extremely hazardous. Do not use sparklers (or other reworks) while under the influence of alcohol. Sparkler sticks can remain hot long after the ame is extinguished. Keep a bucket of water nearby and dump some water on the sparkler aer use. More sparkler and rework safety information is available through the National Council on Fireworks Safety at www. reworksafety.com. Sparkler safety for everyone

BRANHAM -Clinton Hunter Branham, 35 of St. Cloud, Florida passed away Thursday, June 21, 2018. He was born in Orlando, Florida the son of Richard A. and Rebecca Lawson Branham Jr.Clinton worked in construction as an Interior Texture Design Specialist and was a Baptist by faith. His love of sports was evident at a very early age. Being a le hand pitcher with quite a nasty curveball made him a highly sought asset for many baseball teams through his youth. His love of sports continued through his life. He was an avid outdoorsman and sherman as instilled by our wonderful father since birth! Many outdoor camping and shing trips through our lives were priceless memories that he held thru life. Many trips to the coast and late night shiner shing for largemouth bass are some of our fondest memories of our lifetime. His other passion was riding four wheelers. Many trips trail riding on his Suzuki Quad Sport were some epic times he cherished. Anybody that worked beside or with Clinton knew his work ethic was far above par. His dedication to his work, whichever facet of construction he was doing, was the best result or nish that any homeowner would be proud of. He was a perfectionist in all of his trades, and it showed in the quality of work produced. Clinton loved all of his family to the utmost regard. Family meant everything. Although he had no biological children of his own, he loved kids dearly and was a father figure to several children in the absence of their own parents. He oen went without to provide for these children, No questions asked. Clintons love for his mother was immeasurable e losing of her in such a sudden tragic way had a massive impact on him that I believe ultimately was a factor in his death. Hopefully you have found peace now and you and Mom are re-united in Heaven. Clinton is survived by his father, Richard A. Buck Branham of St. Cloud, Florida; brother; Chris Branham of Orlando, Florida; sister; Crystal Branham of St. Cloud, Florida; 3 nephews; Kendall Branham, Dylan Gallagher and Liam Ponce; 1 niece; Raven Raby.

TURNING CIRCLE (curb-to-curb) 37 ft. CURB WEIGHT 3,100 lbs. FUEL CAPACITY 13.2 gal. EPA MILEAGE RATING 27 mpg city, 36 mpg highway Solid Compact Car for Driving Enthusiasts Copyright, Motor Matters, 2018 FOR THE LATEST NEWS WEBSITE AROUNDOSCEOLA.COM Motor Matters A longstanding favorite of driving enthusiasts, the Mazda3 is a quality compact with exceptional overall performance and many desirable features. Yet, sedans and hatchbacks have been losing ground to SUVs, especially the carbased crossovers. At Mazda, for example, the CX-5 midsize crossover outsells all of the Mazda cars, including the Mazda3, Mazda6, and the MX-5 Miata two-seat sports car. Still, theres a solid cadre of American customers who prefer sedans especially those with some sporting credentials for pure driving enjoyment. ats where a car like the Mazda3 Grand Touring comes in. Two versions are available: a fourdoor hatchback and the subject here, the traditional four-door notchback sedan, which comes with a choice of two engines. e base model starting at $18,095, which is no slouch, is equipped with a 155-horsepower, 2.0-liter fourcylinder engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic transmission. MAZDA3e Grand Touring model we tested, featured a 184-horsepower, 2.5-liter fourcylinder engine that develops 185 lb.-. of torque. It is the torque, or twisting force, that delivers the excitement of strong acceleration o the line. e Grand Touring moves to 60 mph in about 7 seconds, more than respectable for a compact sedan in the Mazda3s price range. For enthusiasts who like to shi for themselves, our Grand Touring tester arrived with steering-wheel-mounted paddles to manually shi the six-speed automatic transmission. Though the transmission did fine on its own, the paddles were useful for holding gears on twisting, hilly roads. With a starting price of $25,070, the Grand Touring with its six-speed automatic transmission is a bit more expensive than some of its compact competitors. Spied up with a short list of options, it came with a $28,470 bottomline sticker. Thats roughly $5,000 less than the average price of a new car these days. Yet its a complete package, with a full suite of safety equipment, including lane keeping warning and assist, low-speed automatic collision braking, blind-spot warning, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, and tirepressure monitoring. One of the options deserves a separate mention. It is Mazdas adjustable head-up display, which uses a separate screen that rises up from the top of the dashboard into the drivers line of sight. In addition to a digital speedometer, it also reads trac signs (like speed limits) and shows other information. A center-mounted 7-inch color touchscreen displays navigation and an array of vehicle functions as well as satellite radio and other entertainment data. Selections can be made from the screen or by using a rotary knob mounted on the center console. e Grand Touring sedans exterior styling borders on the generic for compact sedans, handsome without being oeat or oensive. Where it stands out is in the interior materials, design, and execution. The heated leather-covered sport seats on the test car showed quality workmanship and oered long-distance support and comfort up front. Desirable equipment, both standard and optional, included a motorized glass sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control; LED headlights, fog lights, and taillights; pushbutton starting; keyless locking, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. On the road, the test car cruised quietly except for engine noises that intruded under hard acceleration. The electric power steering felt nicely weighted and responsive around curves and maintained a strong line in straight freeway cruising. A supple suspension system, abetted by 18-inch alloy wheels and all-season tires, helped the handling without sacricing ride quality. Mazda has long touted its SkyActiv technology, a holistic approach that covers every aspect of vehicle design to improve fuel economy as well as driving dynamics, no matter how tiny. When you sweat the small stu, you get something like the Mazda3 Grand Touring. Mazda3s combination of craftsmanship, quality and uncommonly good driving dynamics place it apart from its competition in the crowded compact segment. Mazda3 models include G-Vectoring Control, a Mazda-exclusive technology that uses the engine to put a minute amount of weight on the front tires, making steering inputs more surefooted and increasing peace of mind with the goal of improving stability.

CONTACT BRIAN MCBRIDE EDITOR EMAIL BMCBRIDE@OSCEOLANEWSGAZETTE.COM Florida Realtors newly released sales data for Osceola County shows that the most active price point for singlefamily homes and condos and townhomes during May was at $200,000 to $249,999, while lower priced properties become increasingly scarce on the market. In the single-family home market, Osceola County has seen 139 homes close during the month at $200,000 to $249,999, while homes that were priced from $150,000 to $199,999 came in second with 107 closed sales. While these price ranges were seeing the most activity, they still show yearover-year declines of 15.8 percent and 32.3 percent respectively as the more aordable homes disappear off the market. Moving down the price ranges, homes that were $100,000 to $149,999 have declined 64.4 percent to 16 homes, while those that were $50,000 to $99,999 have fallen 40 percent to three sales, and there were no closed sales under $50,000. Going up the price scale, homes that were priced from $250,000 to $299,999 saw 95 closed sales, increasing 46.2 percent from last year, while those that were $300,000 to $399,999 saw 70 closed sales, up 4.5 percent from last year. Condos and townhomes for comparison have seen 86 closed sales at the sweet spot of $200,000 to $249,999, up 352.6 percent over last May. Falling behind that were units that were priced from $150,000 to $199,999, which had 78 closed sales, up 30 percent year-over-year. Declines from last year were seen below these prices. At $100,000 to $149,999 there were 46 closed sales, a decline of 32.4%, while properties that were $50,000 to $99,999 fell 50 percent to 15 closed sales. And like in the single-family home market, there were no sales under $50,000. Moving into higher priced territory, properties that were $250,000 to $299,999 remained unchanged from last year at 12 closed sales, while those that were $300,00 to $399,999 increased 100 percent to 18 sales. Existing-home sales fell back for the second straight month in May, as only the Northeast region saw an uptick in activity, according to the National Association of Realtors. Total existing-home sales, https:// www.nar.realtor/existing-home-sales which are completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, decreased 0.4 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.43 million in May from downwardly revised 5.45 million in April. With last months decline, sales are now 3 percent below a year ago and have fallen year-over-year for three straight months. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says a solid economy and job market should be generating a much stronger sales pace than what has been seen so far this year. Closings were down in a majority of the country last month and declined on an annual basis in each major region, he said. Incredibly low supply continues to be the primary impediment to more sales, but theres no question the combination of higher prices and mortgage rates are pinching the budgets of prospective buyers, and ultimately keeping some from reaching the market. e median existing-home price for all housing types in May was $264,800, an all-time high and up 4.9 percent from May 2017 ($252,500). Mays price increase marks the 75th straight month of year-over-year gains. Total housing inventory at the end of May climbed 2.8 percent to 1.85 million existing homes available for sale, but is still 6.1 percent lower than a year ago (1.97 million) and has fallen year-over-year for 36 consecutive months. Unsold inventory is at a 4.1-month supply at the current sales pace (4.2 months a year ago). Properties typically stayed on the market for 26 days in May, unchanged from April and down from 27 days a year ago. Fiyeight percent of homes sold in May were on the market for less than a month. Inventory coming onto the market during this years spring buying season as evidenced again by last months weak reading was not even close to being enough to satisfy demand, added Yun. at is why home prices keep outpacing incomes and listings are going under contract in less than a month and much faster in many parts of the country. Realtor.coms Market Hotness Index measuring time-on-the-market data and listings views per property, revealed that the hottest metro areas in May were Midland, Texas; Boston-CambridgeNewton, Mass.; San Francisco-OaklandHayward, Calif.; Columbus, Ohio; and Vallejo-Faireld, Calif. According to Freddie Mac, the average commitment rate for a 30year, conventional, xed-rate mortgage increased for the seventh straight month to 4.59 percent in May (highest since 4.64 percent in May 2011) from 4.47 percent in April. e average commitment rate for all of 2017 was 3.99 percent. Declining inventory continues into May with Florida Realtors current housing data recently released. The number of active listings available at the end of the month declined by 7.7 percent from this time last year to 1,575 homes within Osceola Countys single-family home market. With falling inventory, so too falls the Months Supply of Inventory (MSI) which estimates the number of months it will take to deplete the current inventory at the given rate of recent sales. May data for singlefamily homes in Osceola County puts the MSI at 3.7 months, down 7.5 percent from May 2017. Condos and townhomes in the area are showing sharp year-over-year declines by comparison. Active listings in this market have fallen 31.5 percent from last year to 516 properties, while MSI has fallen 46.3 percent to 2.9 months of supply. In our nearby Kissimmee, Sanford, Orlando metro area, inventory of active listings of single-family homes have declined 5.6 percent to 7,979 homes, putting MSI down to 2.9 months of supply, a decline of 3.3 percent. It is worth noting that anything under 5 months puts the market in favor of sellers. Condos and townhomes also favor sellers as the MSI has fallen 29 percent yearover-year to an MSI value of 2.2 months. is is aer inventory in this market has declined 22.9 percent to 1,856 listings. Florida statewide data is more tepid by comparison. e decline in inventory of single-family homes is slight at 0.7 percent with inventory coming in at 90,180 homes listed at the end of May. The Months Supply of Inventory hasnt changed at all from last May, holding steady at four months. And in the condo and townhome market of the state, active listings fell 2 percent from May 2017 to May 2018, landing at 54,044 units available at the end of the month, while the MSI fell 5 percent to a supply of 5.7 months, the only instance in this analysis where buyers were favored in the market.

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

I House Ad PORTLAND, Maine (AP) A new set of Chinese tariffs on U.S. seafood including items made from shark fins could further erode what remains of the American industry for the controversial products. China announced the 25 percent tariffs in midJune that are expected to apply to exported American goods such as lobster and salmon beginning in July. They also will apply to whole or cut shark fins, as well as shark fin products that are canned or preserved, according to a Chinese government website. The U.S. has long banned "shark finning," a practice long reviled by animal welfare groups that involves removing the fin from a shark and discarding the animal at sea. It is still legal to remove and sell the fin of a legally harvested shark after it is brought to land. The steep tariffs, which could turn away business from U.S. exporters, might have implications for American shark fishermen and processors. China is one of the biggest buyers of shark fins, as the product is used to make shark fin soup, an Asian delicacy. "My sense is that's going to decrease demand for sustainably fished U.S. shark fins, and increase demand from countries with less sustainable fisheries," said Shaun Gehan, an attorney for Sustainable Shark Alliance, which represents shark fishermen and dealers. "It'll just be a hardship for the small fish houses and the fishermen that participate in this fishery." Hundreds of fishermen in the U.S. seek numer ous species of shark for their meat and fins in a tightly regulated fishery. The fins represent about a quarter of the value of a shark, and fins that U.S. fishermen harvest are often shipped to Asia for processing. Animal advocates and environmentalists have long called for a complete ban on the shark fin trade because they believe it jeopardizes threatened species of shark. Oceana campaign director Whitney Webber said a national fin ban would "reinforce the status of the United States as a leader in shark conservation." But China's new tariffs could have the opposite effect, potentially increasing demand for shark fins from countries where fisheries are not as well managed, said Robert Hueter, a senior scientist and director of the Center for Shark Research at Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, Florida. "They can get fins from anywhere, and they don't need it from us," Hueter said. "This is hurting U.S. fishermen, not really solving any kind of problem." Beijing announced the tariffs, which also apply to agricultural products and cars, as retaliation against President Donald Trump's tariff increase on Chinese products. The two countries, the world's two largest economies, are in the midst of escalating trade hostility. But some in the U.S. shark fin business do not believe fins will be a casualty of a U.S.-China trade war. Raymond Wong, a New York-based shark fin dealer, said the tariffs can be easily bypassed by shipping fins to Hong Kong, which is a common destination for them anyway. "If I get dogfish fin from Maine or wherever, I can send it to Hong Kong," he said. "I've been sending dogfish to Hong Kong for a while. I am OK."

China tariffs could erode remaining US shark fin business New fears in Russia as researcher of Stalin purges arrestedMOSCOW (AP) Russian authorities this week brought fresh legal action against an acclaimed researcher into Stalin's purges, accusing him of sexual misconduct toward his under age daughter, in what human rights groups see as a trumped-up attempt to shut down his work at a time when the government is seeking to gloss over Soviet-era crimes. Yuri Dmitriyev denies wrongdoing. His arrest Wednesday comes as Russia is hosting the World Cup and trying to showcase cleanedup cities and stadiums and play down its repressive reputation. Dmitriyev's older daughter, Ekaterina Klodt, told The Associated Press Friday she believes her father is being persecuted for his research and activism. "Somebody doesn't like the work that he does," Klodt said. The arrest was the latest step in a lengthy legal case. Dmitriyev had already spent over a year in jail before being acquitted this spring on child pornography charges, but the acquittal was later overturned. The initial charges against Dmitriyev, who heads the local branch of the Memorial human rights group, centered on nine photographs of Dmitriyev's adopted daughter discovered on his home computer. Dmitriyev said he was regularly photographing the girl to document her health. Investigators in the northern region of Karelia, near the border with Finland, said Thursday that Dmitriyev, 62, now faces new accusations of sexually abusing his daughter in 2012-2016. It was unclear what brought on the new accusations and investigators declined to comment. The European Union questioned the "dubious charges" against him. The case has shocked the Russian human rights community, which sees it as an attempt to discredit his work commemorating Stalin's victims. The country's best-known writers, historians and other public gures have campaigned in his defense. Earlier this year, just released from prison, Dmitriyev was given a prestigious human rights award by the Moscow Helsinki Group. In 1997, Dmitriyev, a self-taught researcher and ethnographer, discovered a mass grave in the woods of Karelia full of skulls that had holes in them. So began a two-decade-long effort to locate, identify and commemorate more than 9,500 victims assassinated there on Josef Stalin's orders in the 1930s. Through archival work and expeditions in the woods, Dmitriyev turned the unknown killing eld into a memorial where the relatives of the dead could nally pay their respects, lay owers and cry. A giant stone marking the site, known as Sandramokh, is engraved with the words "People, Don't Kill Each Other." "It cannot be that a person would just disappear without a trace. If he was starved to death or executed, the per son must have a grave," Dmitriyev said in one video interview before his arrest. "Memory is what makes us human." Dmitriyev's supporters speculate that he drew local ofcials' ire when the commemoration events at Sandarmokh started attracting broad public attention. Some experts also believe that because the Russian government today is heavily staffed and inuenced by members of security agencies, whose predecessors conducted the purges, Dmitriyev's work is a thorn in their sides. Writer Dmitry Bykov said Dmitriyev's case is a metaphor for today's Russia. "If you were to prosecute a saint, of course, don't do it for embezzlement or the fact that he beat someone, but ascribe to him the dirtiest thing possible," he said in a video statement in Dmitriyev's defense. "There is no better testament of the times we live in." Dmitriyev's legal troubles began in 2016, when police found nearly 200 photos on his hard drive, and nine were deemed pornographic, according to Dmitriyev's lawyer Viktor Anufriyev. Dmitriyev's colleague, Irina Galkova, observed him and his daughter together three years ago during one of Dmitriyev's expeditions and staunchly disputes the accusations against him. "On every occasion it was 'Daddy, daddy, daddy,'" Galkina said. "You could see that he was such an important person in her life." The AP does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault by name. Dmitriyev, himself an or phan, adopted the girl when she was 3 after his two biological children had grown up. The girl was frail and always hungry, Dmitriyev said in a recent interview. She ate bananas non-stop and shook with anticipation at the sight of pasta. Dmitriyev started keeping a photo diary of the girl's wellbeing after the staff at her daycare noticed marks on her body and suspected Dmitriyev of beating her. Dmitriyev says the marks were traces of newspaper ink left after he treated his daughter with mustard plasters, a remedy widely used in post-Soviet countries for colds and the u.
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 NEW YORK (AP) Never let it be said that Savannah Guthrie doesn't have her partner's back. Hoda Kotb left behind her glasses after a recent meeting so her "Today" show co-host scooped them up, although she's not above pointing out that they needed a wash. Guthrie and Kotb mark six months together next week, a partnership thrust upon them by November's ring of Matt Lauer on sexual misconduct charges. Their performance has allowed NBC News to recover from the shock with little apparent damage to its most valuable property, even as morning television in general adjusts to a world in which many people reach for smartphones instead of TV remotes upon waking. "We're falling into a rhythm," Kotb said. "We understand when the other is going to jump in on something. It's almost like jumping rope. You start getting the hang of it." You can sense the exhales in NBC corporate suites, where fear of the unknown was real. Lauer had dominated "Today" for two decades, the highest-paid talent in television news, and disappeared from the screen with no notice. A former morning producer predicted in the Los Angeles Times that "Today" would lose between 10 to 15 percent of its audience without him. Instead, the 4.2 million viewers that "Today" has averaged since Lauer's departure is down 2 percent from the same period a year earlier, a smaller decline than rivals "Good Morning America" and "CBS This Morning." ''Today" typically runs a narrow second to ABC's show in popularity and leads among the 25-to54-year-old demographic, the measuring stick for most advertising sales. "The partnership between Savannah and Hoda has worked out in wonder ful ways that we expected and wonderful ways that we couldn't have anticipated," said Noah Oppenheim, NBC News president. "Building on their partner ship, the rest of the show has taken on different colors and textures that are resonating with the audience." Yet after doing surprisingly well over the holidays and getting a boost from the Winter Olympics, NBC has fallen consistently back to second place. One wor risome number for a show that has two women as cohosts for the rst time in its history: since the Olympics, NBC's viewership among men in the advertising demographic has declined 14 percent compared with last year, while ABC is up 2 percent, Nielsen said. Guthrie, a former White House correspondent for NBC News, has been cohost since 2012. Kotb is a news veteran, too, although best known to "Today" viewers for pairing with Kathie Lee Gifford on the show's boozy fourth hour. While each has an area of expertise, Guthrie's political experience makes her a natural for those interviews the morning demands versatility. "I wasn't looking to be the big man on campus," Guthrie said. "Big woman," corrected Libby Leist, the show's executive producer. The hosts' experience sent a message of stability that got the show through its difculties, she said. "That's why I think the show has done so well, because you weren't sitting there thinking, 'Who's that person? What kind of experience does that person bring?'" Leist said. "You kind of felt that it was going to be all right." The phrase "looking forward" is usually heard when someone at "Today" is asked now about Lauer. "Some things you just carry," Kotb said. "You go on about your life and you might turn something on or ip a page and see a story about it. It's like picking at a scab. It hurts, but at the same time you know you have a big responsibility and you go on. But if you forget everything, maybe you never cared in the rst place." Leist has tweaked the show, keeping its bones intact. She places special emphasis on explaining complex issues clearly to viewers, and the show isn't seduced by the latest smartphone bulletins. Fascination with the internet is fading; viewers don't always need to know what's trending or what video has gone viral. She and the hosts are shaping the show with their own news judgment last week they debated whether a story on the accidental drowning of skier Bode Miller's daughter was too depressing, but ultimately felt it was important to warn about the dangers of toddlers and pools. "Today" also seeks its own twist on interviews, and Craig Melvin's tense talk with Bill Clinton about Monica Lewinsky made news. Beyond the substance, morning-show teams are judged to a large extent on whether viewers want to spend time during an intimate part of the day with the people onscreen. NBC isn't so far removed from the days of Lauer and Ann Curry to forget what happens when chemistry goes terribly wrong. "I can't gure out which one is Thelma and which one is Louise," said Gail Shister, longtime television columnist at the Philadelphia Inquirer and now a University of Pennsylvania professor. "They're so wacky and unpredictable. I think they've got wonderful chemistry." Kotb is continuing the show's fourth hour with Gifford. Published rumors have NBC considering switching Megyn Kelly's third hour with the fourth, although Oppenheim said it's not being contemplated "right this second."

NBCs new Today team marks 6 monthsJoe Jackson turned his children into stars, but at a priceNEW YORK (AP) Joe Jackson once had his own dreams of success. He tried to be a boxer and then played guitar with a group called The Falcons. But he realized early on that there was an overwhelming pool of musical talent in his children, par ticularly a little bright-eyed boy named Michael. He channeled his ambition through them, creating one of the greatest pop vocal groups, The Jackson Five, and launched the career of one of entertainment's greatest legends in Michael Jackson, as well as another super star talent, daughter Janet. Yet the legacy of Jackson, who died Wednesday in Las Vegas at the age of 89, was steeped not only in the brilliant guidance of his children into the world's premiere entertainment dynasty, but the iron st with which he did it. Michael described beatings with the switch of a tree branch, and a fear so great of his father that he would sometimes vomit at the sight of him. His children called him Joseph they weren't allowed to call him by fatherly terms. "You call me Joseph,'" Janet Jackson recalled her father telling her once when she called him dad. "I'm Joseph to you." By the time they were all adults, his children severed professional ties to him, preferring to let others guide the careers he once nurtured. Still, in times of turmoil, it was Joe that they continued to turn to. When Michael Jackson stood trial on allegations that he sexually abused a child (he was acquitted), it was Joe Jackson who was at his side on most days. Janet Jackson rationalized that her father wanted the best for his children, even if he didn't go about it the right way. And La Toya Jackson, who once accused her father of physical and sexual abuse, later blamed her abusive for mer husband for coercing her to say it. In later years, relished her time with her father. On Wednesday, she delivered a loving tribute to him. "I will always love you! You gave us strength, you made us one of the most famous families in the world. I am extremely appreciative of that, I will never forget our moments together and how you told me how much you cared," she wrote on Twitter. Joseph Walter Jackson was born in Fountain Hill, Ar kansas, on July 26, 1928. He was the eldest of four children to a high school teacher and a house wife. When he was 12, his parents split and he moved with his father to Oakland, California. At 18, he moved to Indiana to live near his mother in East Chicago. It was in Indiana that he met and married Katherine Scruse, with whom he settled in Gary. He worked as a welder and crane operator, sometimes holding as many as three jobs at a time to support his family. He abandoned his musical ambitions in part because of his burgeoning brood, which would eventually swell to include nine children Rebbie, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, La Toya, Marlon, Michael, Randy and youngest sister Janet all living in a three-room house in Gary. (A 10th child, Brandon, was stillborn.) He kept his guitar but made it clear it was off limits to anyone but him. His children didn't listen. One day, the older brothers broke a string on the beloved guitar, as Michael Jackson described in his autobiography "Moonwalk." Fearing a beating, Tito Jackson hid in fear, but when his father demanded he show what he could do with the guitar, he did and Joe Jackson was awed. And a musical group was born. Michael joined the group at age 8, and was its showstopper from the beginning. A bundle of energy with a high-pitched voice, amazing dance moves and a smile that wouldn't quit, he quickly became the lead singer. His father invested in professional equipment for the children, booked tour dates and became their manager. That eventually led to a contract with Motown Records for his ve oldest boys, a deal that launched them into super stardom with their bubblegum pop-soul sound. Years later, he helped maneuver their exit from Motown to Epic Records when he felt that the legendary label was stiing his sons' creativity. They became The Jacksons, with Jermaine staying with Motown and brother Randy joining the group. They eventually wrote their own music, leading to Michael Jackson's growth as a singer-songwriter. Michael Jackson credited his father with making sure his children weren't cheated by industry vultures, and noted that unlike some child stars, his parents didn't take their children's money to enrich themselves. "I'd say we're among a for tunate few artists who walked away from a childhood in the business with anything substantial money, real estate, other investments. My father set all these up for us," Jackson wrote in his 1988 autobiography. "But still I don't know him, and that's sad for a son who hungers to under stand his own father. He's still a mystery to me and may always be one." The relationship with many of his children never improved. Janet Jackson said in a CNN interview in 2011 that she rarely spoke to her father, and by adulthood, they had severed ties with Jackson as their manager. When Michael Jackson died of an overdose of the anesthetic propofol in 2009, he had been estranged from his father, and his bodyguards recall not allowing Joe Jackson in when he attempted to see the superstar at his estate. Joe was not mentioned in Michael's will. Jackson only provided for his three children and mother Katherine, who was named as the children's guardian. That led Joe Jackson to wage a fruitless legal war seeking compensation from various entities. In his own autobiography, Jackson acknowledged being a stern parent, saying he believed it was the only way to prepare his children for the tough world of show business. But he denied many of the claims of physical abuse. No longer involved in his children's careers, Joseph Jackson launched a boot camp for aspiring hip-hop artists, promoting lyrics without vulgarity and sponsoring competitions for young artists from across the country. He spent most of his time at a home in Las Vegas and traveled the country auditioning talent for the competition. "He was never given the credit he deserved," the Rev. Al Sharpton wrote on Twitter following the death. "He inuenced the world of music with the Jackson 5, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson and others. May history correct his legacy." Jackson, a green-eyed dandy who wore a pencil-thin mustache and huge diamond pinky ring, faced allegations by his wife of indelity. She accused him of fathering a child by another woman a daughter named Joh'Vonnie Jackson. Katherine led for divorce twice but never followed through. "We just let our troubles die out," Joseph Jackson said in 1988, following a reconciliation. "We survived. We love each other, and we have children. That's why we're together." The family also came together in 2010, when Michael's physician, Conrad Murray, stood trial on Michael's overdose death. Joseph, Katherine and several of Michael's siblings watched as Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, a verdict that provided some comfort for the family. Joe Jackson is survived by his wife, eight of his children with Katherine, daughter Joh'Vonnie Jackson and more than two dozen grandchildren.
Saturday, June 30, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E5 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Teachers unions are hoping that recent grass-roots protests over pay and working conditions will blunt the impact of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on union fees and help per suade dues-paying members not to abandon them. The court said in a 5-4 ruling Wednesday that government workers can no longer be required to pay fees to labor organizations that represent them in collective bargaining. The non-members paying those fees are only a small portion of the people represented by teachers unions, which are more concerned about a potentially bigger nancial blow if members decide to opt out and join those who benet from the bargaining representation without having to pay for it. That leaves unions ghting to prove their worth and relevance. "There has been an inter esting surge in union militancy and strikes, whether we look at the West Virginia teachers, the Tennessee teachers, all of those teachers strikes this past spring occurred in right to work states, where supposedly unions were not strong. And those were some of the largest movements of workers that we've seen in a long time," said Ileen DeVault, a Cornell University professor of labor history and director of The Worker Institute at Cornell. "I think the inequality in our country has reached a point where people really can't stand for it going any lower. Even Republicans may learn why it was better to have unions rather than to have people out in the streets on strike," she said. The court's ruling provides "a powerful opportunity for union leaders to hit the reset button," said Kate Walsh, president of the National Council on Teacher Quality, a research and policy group. "Union leaders in this sector have too often confused their protection and advocacy for some members with their obligation to the profession at large," she said. The teachers unions hope the successful protests will blunt the impact of the court's ruling. The head of the largest teachers union, National Education Association President Lily Eskelsen Garcia, said the demonstrations helped recruit new members and illustrate the power of a collective voice. "I think there are a whole lot of people paying attention now that maybe weren't paying attention before," she said. She and American Feder ation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten accused the high court of siding with wealthy business interests over the working class and emphasized their unions aren't going anywhere. But supporters of the ruling hailed it as a victory for non-union employees who object to paying unions that might be advocating for political causes with which they disagree. "Public sector unions will now have to prioritize how they spend their funds without the revenue stream of nonmembers' compelled agency fees," said Elizabeth Slattery of the conservative-leaning Heritage Foundation. The teachers unions have been bracing for the court's decision since it split 4-4 when it considered the issue in 2016 following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Like other publicsector unions, they say they've tried to be extra-attentive to member concerns and boost one-on-one communication with members, making a case for the value of unions in anticipation of an increased push by opponents of organized labor to pressure members to leave. "That's where our concern comes in," said Melissa Cropper, president of the Ohio Federation of Teachers. "When people start getting social media ads, getting things in their mail, getting people knocking on their door saying, 'Give yourself a raise. Don't pay your union dues anymore,' what impact will that have on our membership?" Unions can only guess to what extent the ruling might dent their funding, services and political advocacy. They argue it should be a matter of public inter est because unions bargain not only issues like teachers' wages and benets but also class sizes and other elements that affect students' learning environments. "When you see attacks on unions, that can have an impact on what's happening in the classroom, and that's what should be concerning to people," Cropper said. In the short term, unions will lose some resources, members and maybe even staff, making it hard for them to be effective, said Robert Bruno, a professor of labor and employment relations at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He said the long-term impact whether it be shrinking union member ship or a resurgence and more activism depends on how unions have prepared for and react to this shift, and whether teachers in collective-bargaining states can preserve other industry-related public policies, such as the ability to bargain health insurance or pensions. If unions weaken and working conditions worsen, educators may look for ways to ght back, whether it's at the bargaining table or in public demonstrations to state governments, Bruno said. "They will stand and take a bullet for a kid," Bruno said. "If they think that they can march on a state capital and they can shut a school down and they can get attention to the needs of that school then, you know, I think they're going to do it."

Here is a look at what makes the Nordic country a popular spot for high-level meetings:FINLAND STICKS TO NEUTRALITYFinland has a long tradition of hosting U.S.-Russian summits, particularly during the Cold War, when the country was a neutral buffer state and its capital, Helsinki, served as a gateway between the Communist East and the West. The small Nordic nation of 5.5 million people has a 1,340-kilometer (830-mile) border with Russia and a complex history with its large neighbor. As a part of the Swedish Kingdom, it took part in dozens of conicts with Russia over the past centuries and fought two wars with the Soviet Union during World War II, from 1939-40 and 1941-44. In the postwar period, however, Finland pursued pragmatic political and economic ties with Moscow. President Sauli Niinisto has nurtured a close relationship with Putin, as did his predecessor Tarja Halonen, and has equally good ties with U.S. President Donald Trump, whom he met at the White House last year.HOW FINLAND CAME TO BEThe area known today as Finland served as a battleeld for Russian-Swedish conicts for centuries, and fell in 1809 into Russian hands in Europe's Napoleonic Wars after 700 years of Swedish rule. However, as an autonomous Grand Duchy of the Russian Empire, it was allowed to develop politically having its own parliament and economically, eventually leading to independence from Soviet-Russia in the turmoil surrounding the Russian Revolution in 1917.LONG TIES TO GIANT NEIGHBOR RUSSIAFinns, who last year celebrated the centenary of regaining their independence, have secured friendly ties with Moscow by pledging neutrality and a non-alignment policy and developing trade with the Russians. West German politicians and scholars dubbed the policy "Finlandization" in the 1970s, using it in a derisive way to describe the inuence of a powerful country in the policies of a smaller neighbor. The term is much detested by Finns. With big public support, Finland joined the European Union in 1995 and was one of original eurozone members, adopting the shared euro currency in 2002. But Finland is not a member of NATO and most Finns remain opposed to NATO membership today, according to polls, though many politicians in the cur rent center-right government favor it.FINLAND AND THE COLD WARFinland's post-WWII foreign policy was dened by its ne balancing act of maintaining the small country's good relations with the West particularly with the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War. At the height of detente in the 1970s, President Urho Kekkonen hosted a U.S.Soviet summit in Helsinki in 1975 where U.S. President Gerald Ford, Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev and others signed the Helsinki Accords, a watershed commitment to peace, security and human rights. In the 1980s, Finland also served as convenient base for high-ranking U.S. ofcials keen to tap the Finns' knowledge of the Soviet Union, often en route to Moscow. In May 1988, President Ronald Reagan met with Finnish President Mauno Koivisto in Helsinki on his way to the USSR.OTHER HISTORIC MEETINGS IN FINLANDAfter the 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Finland continued to maintain equally good relations with Moscow and Washington while integrating more deeply into Western security structures. In September 1990, the Finns hosted a U.S.-Soviet summit between U.S. President George H.W. Bush and the last Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, in Helsinki over Iraq's invasion of Kuwait and the situation in the Middle East. President Bill Clinton met his Russian counter part Boris Yeltsin there in March 1997 to discuss NATO expansion into for mer Soviet bloc countries. Recently, a Finnish stateowned manor just outside Helsinki has been the venue for several international meetings, including for delegations from the Korean peninsula and the United States, and top military leaders of Russia and the United States.
Page E6, In researching recipes for barbecued brisket, we found that cooks could agree on one thing: slow-cooking (for up to 12 hours) to tenderize the meat. We wanted to gure out a way to make cooking this cut of meat less daunting and less time-consuming, and we wanted to trade in a professional smoker for a backyard grill. We brined the brisket to season it throughout and to make sure the meat remained juicy even after hours on the grill. In our tests, we had trouble guring out how to maintain a low temperature in the grill without frequently refueling. But then we realized that re can burn down as well as up. We layered unlit briquettes on the bottom of our grill and added hot coals on top for a re that burned consistently in the optimal 300 F range for about 3 hours. We then transferred the brisket to the oven to nish cooking.BARBECUED BEEF BRISKETServings: 8-10 Start to nish: 7 hours and 15 minutes, plus 30 minutes to rest brisket If your brisket is smaller than 5 pounds or the fat cap has been removed, or if you are using a small charcoal grill, it may be necessary to build an aluminum foil shield in order to keep the brisket from becoming too dark. To do this, make two 1/2-inch folds on the long side of an 18-by-20-inch piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil to form a reinforced edge. Place the foil on the center of the cooking grate, with the reinforced edge over the hotter side of the grill. Position the brisket fat side down over the cooler side of the grill so that it covers about half of the foil. Pull the foil over the brisket to loosely tent it. Some of the traditional accompaniments to barbecued brisket include barbecue sauce, sliced white bread or saltines, pickle chips, and thinly sliced onion. 1 (5to 6-pound) beef brisket, at cut, untrimmed 2/3 cup salt 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar 3 wood chunks, prefer ably hickory, or 2 cups wood chips (if using gas) 3 tablespoons kosher salt 2 tablespoons pepper 1 (13 by 9-inch) disposable aluminum roasting pan (if using charcoal) or 1 (9-inch) disposable aluminum pie plate (if using gas) Lightly score brisket fat cap in 1-inch crosshatch pattern, being careful not to cut into meat. Dissolve salt and 1/2 cup sugar in 4 quarts cold water in large container. Submerge brisket in brine, cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours. While brisket brines, soak wood chunks in water for at least 1 hour; drain. If using gas, soak wood chips in water for 15 minutes, then drain. Using large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil, wrap chips in 8 by 4 1/2-inch foil packet. (Make sure chips do not poke holes in sides or bottom of packet.) Cut 2 evenly spaced 2-inch slits in top of packet. Combine remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, kosher salt, and pepper in bowl. Remove brisket from brine and pat dry with paper towels. Transfer to rimmed baking sheet and rub salt mixture over entire brisket and into slits. For a charcoal grill: Open bottom vent halfway and place disposable roasting pan on 1 side of grill. Add 2 cups water to pan. Arrange 3 quarts unlit charcoal briquettes banked against other side of grill. Light large chimney starter two-thirds lled with charcoal (4 quarts). When top coals are partially covered with ash, pour on top of unlit charcoal to cover one-third of grill with coals steeply banked against side of grill. Place soaked wood chunks on top of coals. Set cooking grate in place, cover, and open lid vent halfway. Heat grill until hot, about 5 minutes. For a gas grill: Remove cooking grate and place wood chip packet directly on primary burner. Place disposable pie plate lled with 2 cups water on other burner(s). Set cooking grate in place, turn all burners to high, cover, and heat grill until hot and wood chips are smoking, about 15 minutes. Turn primary burner to medium and turn off other burner(s). (Adjust primary burner as needed to maintain grill temperature of 250 F to 300 F.) Clean and oil cooking grate. Place brisket on cooler side of grill, fat side down, as far away from coals and ames as possible with thickest side facing coals and ames. Cover (position lid vent over meat if using char coal) and cook for 3 hours. During nal 20 minutes of grilling, adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 325 F. Set wire rack in rimmed baking sheet lined with foil and transfer brisket to rack. Roast in oven until tender and meat registers 195 F, about 2 hours. Transfer brisket to carving board, tent with foil, and let rest for 30 minutes. Slice brisket against grain into long, thin slices and serve.

Saturday, June 30, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E7 MILAN (AP) Italy and at least three other countries agreed Tuesday to accept migrants from an aid ship that has been in a holding pattern off Malta for ve days, but the vessel's destination remained unclear during Europe's second impasse this month over rescues in Libyan waters by humanitarian groups. Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte said after a phone call with Malta's prime minister that the boat oper ated by German aid group Mission Lifeline would disembark in the Mediterranean island nation, where its legal standing to conduct missions off Libya would be investigated. "Italy will do its part to accept a quota of migrants aboard the Lifeline, with the hope that also other European countries would do the same, as some have previously indicated," Conte said in a statement. However, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat did not conrm the assertion by Conte and a similar account from French President Emmanuel Macron that the Lifeline could dock in Malta. Muscat said in a statement only that if his country allowed the boat in, the activities of its crew would be investigated. A Maltese government source said a decision on whether to allow the ship to berth would depend on whether other countries accept some of the migrants. The source was not authorized to speak on the record and requested anonymity. Macron said France and other countries were working out how to divide the more than 200 rescued passengers. The Lifeline has been blocked in the Mediterranean Sea since last week, when both Italy and Malta refused to grant it access to their ports. Indicating the confusion surrounding the boat's direction, Mission Lifeline wrote on Twitter that it had received hardly any direct messages just news from Twitter and that it was awaiting word about which EU countries would welcome its passengers. Later Tuesday, the aid group said Malta had sent a message refusing entry to its territorial waters, contradicting the Italian and French leaders and further confusing the itinerary of the ship and its passengers. The impasse was similar to another this month over the Aquarius, a rescue ship operated by French aid groups. The ship car rying 630 migrants had its journey to land extended by a week after Malta and Italy would not grant docking rights. Spain ultimately agreed to accept the passengers, and the Aquarius traveled an additional 1,500-kilometers (900-miles) to get there. Italy's Sky TG24, which visited the Lifeline on Monday, said it was about four times over passenger capacity and running low on fuel. According to Sky, it had on board 224 migrants, including eight children, and 10 crew members. One passenger was evacuated on Monday due to a medical emergency, and Lifeline said in a message on Twitter that "conditions are worsening by days for the people on board." Italy's new hard-line interior minister, Matteo Salvini, has made clear he doesn't want rescue ships run by non-governmental agencies to ferry migrants to Italy any more. Conte is pressing is European peers to take on more of the migrant burden when they meet at a summit later this week. In a tweet about the Lifeline, Salvini said the "illegal ship will nally be seized" when it arrives in Malta, adding, "For women and children truly eeing war, the ports are open, for all the others, no." Salvini has likened the ships run by private aid groups under non-Italian ags to taxi services that are serving migrant smugglers. Italy hasn't taken the same position with other ships. It allowed the Danish-agged container ship Alexander Maersk to dock and disembark 108 migrants in Sicily on Tuesday after days at sea. Malta's Muscat pressed other EU nations to take on a share of the migrants and later announced that four countries had agreed to take in some of the passengers and two more were considering doing so. Muscat said if the ship does go to Malta, an investigation would seek to determine why the crew allegedly ignored instructions from the Italian authorities who initially coordinated the rescue. Authorities have also questioned the legality of the ship, which has a Dutch ag but is run by a German group. In his proposals for dealing with migration, Conte has emphasized that migrants arriving in Italy are arriving in Europe, and responsibility for them should be shared by all the member states. "The obligation of rescue cannot become an obligation to process all the requests on behalf of everyone," the proposal reads, asserting that only 7 percent of migrants ar riving in Europe qualify as refugees. MCALLEN, Texas (AP) The clock is ticking for the Trump administration after a federal judge ordered thousands of migrant children and parents reunited within 30 days, sooner if the youngster is under 5. The hard deadline was set Tuesday night by U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego after President Donald Trump's order ending the forced separation of families at the Mexican bor der gave way to days of uncertainty, conicting infor mation and no word from the administration on when parents might see their children again. "This situation has reached a crisis level," Sabraw wrote. The order poses a host of logistical problems for the administration, and it was unclear how it would meet the deadline. Health and Human Ser vices, which is in charge of the children, referred questions to the Justice Department. The Justice Department said the ruling makes it "even more imperative that Congress nally act to give federal law enforcement the ability to simultaneously enforce the law and keep families together." "Without this action by Congress, lawlessness at the border will continue," the department said. Sabraw, an appointee of Republican President George W. Bush, said children under 5 must reunited with their parents within 14 days. He also issued a nationwide injunction against future family separations, unless the parent is deemed unt or doesn't want to be with the child, and ordered the government to provide phone contact between par ents and their children within 10 days. The case was brought by the American Civil Liber ties Union, which sued in March on behalf of a 7-yearold girl who was separated from her Congolese mother and a 14-year-old boy who was taken from his Brazilian mother. "Tears will be owing in detention centers across the country when the families learn they will be reunited," said ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt. More than 2,000 children have been separated from their parents in recent weeks and placed in government-contracted shelters hundreds of miles away, in some cases under a now-abandoned policy toward families caught illegally entering the U.S. Amid an international outcry, Trump last week issued an executive order to stop the separation of families and said parents and children will instead be detained together. But parents already separated from their children were left in the dark on when and how they would be reunited, and Homeland Security seemed only to sow more confusion over the weekend. "The facts set forth before the Court portray reactive governance responses to address a chaotic circumstance of the Government's own making," Sabraw wrote. "They belie measured and ordered gover nance, which is central to the concept of due process enshrined in our Constitution." Since Trump issued the executive order, the administration has been casting about for detention space for holding families together and has asked the courts to modify a 1997 settlement that generally bars the government from keeping children locked up with their parents for more than 20 days. The task ahead could be monumental: Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told Congress on Tuesday that his department still has custody of 2,047 immigrant children separated from their parents at the border only six fewer than last Wednesday. Democratic senators said that wasn't nearly enough progress. Under questioning, Azar refused to be pinned down on how long it will take to reunite families. He said his department does extensive vetting of parents to make sure they are not trafckers masquerading as parents. Also challenging will be the requirement the judge set on phone contact. At a Texas detention facility near Los Fresnos, immigrant advocates complained that parents have gotten busy signals or no answer from a 1-800 number set up by federal authorities to get information about their children. "The U.S. government never had any plan to reunite these families that were separated," Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg of the Legal Aid Justice Center in Virginia said Tuesday. The government is now "scrambling to undo this terrible thing that they have done."

Page E8, WASHINGTON (AP) The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Presi dent Donald Trump's ban on travel from several mostly Muslim countries, rejecting a challenge that it discriminated against Muslims or exceeded his authority. The 5-4 decision Tuesday is the court's rst substantive ruling on a Trump administration policy, and the president quickly tweeted his reaction: "Wow!" Chief Justice John Rob erts wrote the majority opinion, joined by his four conservative colleagues. Roberts wrote that presidents have substantial power to regulate immi gration. He also rejected the challengers' claim of anti-Muslim bias. But he was careful not to endorse either Trump's provocative statements about immigration in general or Muslims in particu lar. "We express no view on the soundness of the poli cy," Roberts wrote. The travel ban has been fully in place since De cember, when the justices put the brakes on lower court rulings that had ruled the policy out of bounds and blocked part of it from being enforced. In a dissent she summarized in court, Justice So nia Sotomayor said, "History will not look kindly on the court's misguided decision today, nor should it." Sotomayor wrote that based on the evidence in the case "a reasonable observer would conclude that the Proclamation was motivated by anti-Muslim animus." She said her colleagues in the majority arrived at the opposite re sult by "ignoring the facts, misconstruing our legal precedent and turning a blind eye to the pain and suffering the Proclama tion inicts upon countless families and individuals, many of whom are United States citizens." Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan also dissent ed. The policy applies to travelers from ve coun tries with overwhelmingly Muslim populations Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. It also affects two non-Muslim countries, blocking travelers from North Korea and some Venezuelan government ofcials and their families. A sixth major ity Muslim country, Chad, was removed from the list in April after improving "its identity-management and information sharing practices," Trump said in a proclamation. The administration had pointed to the Chad decision to show that the re strictions are premised only on national security concerns. The challengers, though, argued that the court could not just ignore all that has happened, beginning with Trump's campaign tweets to prevent the entry of Muslims into the United States. The travel ban has long been central to Trump's presidency. He proposed a broad, all-encompassing Muslim ban during the presidential campaign in 2015, draw ing swift rebukes from Republicans as well as Democrats. And within a week of taking ofce, the rst travel ban was announced with little notice, sparking chaos at airports and protests across the nation. While the ban has changed shape since then, it has remained a key part of Trump's "America First" vision, with the president believing that the restric tion, taken in tandem with his promised wall at the southern border, would make the Unites States safer from potentially hos tile foreigners. Critics said the changes didn't erase the ban's le gal problems, and lower courts largely agreed. The current version dates from last September and it followed what the administration has called a thorough review by sev eral federal agencies, al though no such review has been shared with courts or the public. Federal trial judges in Hawaii and Maryland had blocked the travel ban from taking effect, nd ing that the new version looked too much like its predecessors. Those rulings that were largely upheld by federal appeals courts in Richmond, Vir ginia, and San Francisco. But the Supreme Court came to a different conclu sion Tuesday. The policy has "a legitimate ground ing in national security concerns," and it has several moderating features, including a waiver program that would allow some people from the af fected countries to enter the U.S., Roberts said. The administration has said that 809 people have received waivers since the ban took full effect in De cember. Roberts wrote that presidents have frequently used their power to talk to the nation "to espouse the principles of religious freedom and tolerance on which this Nation was founded." But he added that presidents and the country have not always lived up "to those inspir ing words."

Court upholds Trump travel ban, rejects discrimination claimTrump's clout within GOP on the line in Tuesday electionsCOLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) President Donald Trump is not on the ballot, but he has invested time, energy and political capi tal in a slate of primary contests across America that will again test his clout within his own party. Voters weigh in on candidates in seven states Tuesday, but the con test that matters most to Trump is South Carolina, where he appeared at a rally to help Gov. Henry McMaster hours before polls opened. The Re publican governor, one of Trump's rst high-prole supporters, is ghting for his political life against self-made millionaire John Warren in a runoff election that threatens to embarrass the White House if McMaster falls short. "Henry was for me from the beginning. There was nobody else," Trump said Monday night before com manding, "Get your asses out tomorrow and vote." Trump followed the or der with a sunrise Twitter reminder: "GO OUT AND VOTE FOR HENRY TO DAY, HE WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN." The South Carolina gubernatorial race headlined the latest in a series of primary contests that stretched across New York, Utah, Colorado, Oklaho ma, Maryland and Missis sippi on Tuesday. With the November general elec tion nearly four months away, more than half of all states will have select ed their general-election candidates after the day's votes are counted. History suggests that Trump's Republican Party, like the political party of virtually every rst-term president dating back to Ronald Reagan in 1982, will face heavy losses this fall. Yet it remains unclear whether Democrats' enthusiasm advantage demonstrated in the early months of Trump's presidency will be enough to seize control of Congress and key gov ernor's ofces nationwide. It is clear, however, that Trump will be an active participant in the GOP's ght to maintain power. As he has in other states with mixed success over the last year, the president also injected himself into marquee races Tuesday in New York, where a con victed felon is ghting for his old job, and in Utah, where the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, is seeking a political comeback as a 71-year-old freshman senator. Trump last month stepped into a messy congressional primary in New York City's only Repub lican stronghold, Staten Island, calling for the reelection of GOP Rep. Dan Donovan. Standing in his way: Michael Grimm, who held the seat until 2015, when he pleaded guilty to knowingly hiring immi grants in the country without legal authorization to work at his Manhattan restaurant and cooking the books to hide income and evade taxes. Grimm, who served sev en months in prison for the offenses, was also known for his tough-guy talk while in Congress, where he once threatened, on camera, to break a reporter in half "like a boy" and throw him from a balcony. Elsewhere in New York, a handful of incumbent congressmen from both parties could lose their jobs. They include Rep. Joe Crowley, considered a candidate to become the next House speaker should Democrats win the major ity. He is locked in his rst serious Democratic primary in more than a decade. Political newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old former aide to the late Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy, hopes to take down the Democratic leader. While Crowley is backed by many unions, Ocasio-Cortez has been endorsed by a handful of inuential liberal groups, including MoveOn. More than 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) away in deep-red Utah, Trump also endorsed Romney, who once served as the face of the "Never Trump" move ment but has since warmed to the Trump presidency. The former Massachusetts governor is facing lit tle-known state Rep. Mike Kennedy, who questions Romney's conservative credentials and ability to work well with the presi dent. Kennedy won over far-right conservatives at the state GOP convention earlier in the year, but he's expected to struggle among more moderate Republican voters including many Trump critics around the state. In a weekend op-ed pub lished in The Salt Lake Tribune, Romney wrote that the Trump adminis tration's policies have exceeded his expectations in its rst year, but he pledged to "continue to speak out when the president says or does something which is divisive, racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, dishonest or destructive to democratic institutions." Not to be forgotten Tues day: races to determine gubernatorial candidates in Maryland, Colorado and Oklahoma. Oklahoma is also deciding whether to legalize the cultivation, possession and use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. But the most signicant test of Trump's inuence comes in South Carolina, where McMaster el evated to the state's top of ce last year when Nikki Haley became U.N. ambassador is in jeopardy. Two weeks ago, the sitting governor failed to win the GOP primary outright, re quiring a runoff election this week with Warren. Warren, a millionaire businessman and a Marine, has argued that his outsid er candidacy makes him, not longtime GOP establishment gure McMaster, more akin to Trump. McMaster shocked even his closest advisers when, as lieutenant governor in early 2016, he became the rst statewide-elected ofcial in the country to back Trump's White House bid. The White House has been throwing everything at its disposal into the race to save McMaster. Trump visited the state for a fund raiser last year. Vice Presi dent Mike Pence appeared at a campaign rally with McMaster over the weekend. Trump dedicated only a few minutes of his hour long rambling speech to the Republican governor he was there to support. But McMaster got the im age he wanted as he em braced Trump while they briey shared the stage. "He's a ghter," Trump said of McMaster. "He's tough and he's strong." McMaster, given his turn to speak, called Trump "a real force of nature."

AroundOsceola.com JERUSALEM (AP) Prince William began his visit to Israel on Tuesday with an emotional visit to Jerusa lem's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial and a meeting with two survivors who escaped Nazi Germany for the safety of Britain. Yad Vashem Chairman Avner Shalev, who guided the Duke of Cambridge through the museum's exhi bitions detailing Nazi Ger many's genocide of 6 million Jews during World War II, said the prince was visibly moved as he stopped to in quire about various elements of the Holocaust. "The theme that repeated itself throughout the entire visit was his wondering of what kind of deep hatred could have driven people to commit such horric acts," Shalev told The Associated Press. "He kept saying: 'How did they get to such a place?' ... He really identied with the victims." The hour-and-a-half visit included a ceremony in which he placed a wreath on a concrete slab containing the ashes of Holocaust vic tims and a brief meeting with a pair of survivors from the Kindertransport, a rescue effort for some 12,000 children who were sent from Ger many to Britain on the eve of World War II. Henry Foner, who was fostered by a Jewish family in Swansea, Wales, and later served overseas for the Brit ish Army, said it was like a fairy tale for a refugee child like himself to meet a mem ber of the royal family eight decades after the country res cued him. "I'm very grateful to Britain because it saved my life, it's as simple as that," said Foner, 86. "It was as if he knew us, he knew the back ground and he made us feel so at home. It's as if you had met a friend you hadn't seen in a while." In signing the Yad Vashem guestbook, the prince called it a "profoundly moving ex perience" and said the Holo caust was "almost impossible to comprehend." He noted with pride that his great-grandmother had been recognized as a Righteous Among the Nations, the highest honor Israel grants to non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust. Princess Alice hid three members of the Cohen family in her palace in Ath ens during the Nazi occupa tion of Greece in World War II. Thanks to her efforts, the Cohen family survived and today lives in France. The princess died in 1969, and in 1988 her remains were brought to Jerusalem. Prince William plans to visit her gravesite later in the week as part of his tour of Jerusalem landmarks. The prince is the rst member of the British royal family to pay an ofcial visit to Israel. Though the trip is being billed as non-political, the prince is meeting with Is raeli and Palestinian leaders and visiting sites at the heart of the century-old conict. Three decades of British rule between the two world wars helped establish some of the fault lines of today's Israeli-Palestinian conict, and Britain's withdrawal in 1948 led to the eventual establish ment of Israel and Jordan, where he kicked off the veday Mideast tour on Sunday. For the 36-year-old Wil liam, second in line to the throne, it marks a high-prole visit that could burnish his international credentials. After Yad Vashem he met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara, accompanied by de scendants of the Cohen fam ily Princess Alice had saved. Later, President Reuven Rivlin told the prince about his childhood in Jerusalem living under the British mandate and asked him to deliver a "message of peace" to Pal estinian President Mahmoud Abbas, whom he will meet later in the week. The Palestinians are also eager to welcome the prince, hoping his visit will give them a boost as they struggle with a Trump administration they consider biased toward Israel. The prince will try to deft ly dodge politics as he later visits east Jerusalem, which Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast war and annexed in a move not internationally recognized. Israel considers east Jerusalem, home to holy sites sacred to Jews, Chris tians and Muslims, as an in separable part of its capital. The Palestinians claim east Jerusalem as their future capital. The prince presented Rivlin, an avid football fan, with a jersey of his favorite Premier League team, Liv erpool, and expressed how eager he was to dive into his rst visit to the Holy Land. "I'm really looking for ward to getting to meet as many Israelis as possible and understand Israeli history and Israeli culture," the prince said. "I'm very much looking forward to really absorbing and understanding the differ ent issues." William then departed for coastal Tel Aviv to attend a soccer match of young Jewish and Arab players run by the Peres Peace Center. Wearing a light blue shirt, dark blue pants and blue Nike sneakers with a yellow logo, the prince scored two out of three penalty kicks against a 13-year-old goalkeeper. He then met the mayor of Tel Aviv and together they hit the beach, where the prince chatted up tanned volleyball players. The prince wraps up the busy day with a reception held by the British ambas sador that will include dem onstrations by Israeli tech startups.

Prince William visits Israel's Holocaust memorialVenezuela's wealthy beat water crisis drilling private wellsCARACAS, Venezuela (AP) Reaching for the faucet felt like a frustrating game of chance for Elizabeth Robles. At rst, water owed only one or two days a week, so Robles, president of her homeowners' association, hired trucks to ll the building's underground storage tank. With self-imposed ra tioning, the residents had water but only for an hour, three times each day. "When you get home at ve in the afternoon all sweaty, you couldn't take a shower," said Robles, a small business owner and lawyer. "It's like punishment by water." Finally they were fed up. Since the government couldn't provide water, they decided to drill their own well alongside their apartment building in the tony Campo Alegre neighbor hood, an increasingly popu lar solution among the wellto-do as Venezuela's water system crumbles along with its socialist-run economy. Venezuela's meltdown has been accelerating under President Nicolas Maduro's rule, prompting masses of people to abandon the nation in frustration at shortages of food and medicine, street violence, rampant blackouts and now sputtering faucets. Robles said she and her neighbors hired a drilling rm in February for $7,000 roughly $280 per family. At least three other build ings on their tree-lined street, which is near the city's mostexclusive country club, have hired the same engineer. The rm moves its crew and towering yellow rig from one work site to the next. The noisy diesel-powered machine clatters around the clock for several days until the drill strikes water, gener ally about 260 feet (80 me ters) down. Meanwhile, the less fortunate struggle with dwindling public water supplies, hop ing sporadic ows will ll their 150-gallon (560-liter) plastic storage tanks tted with buzzing electric pumps. Or they stand in line at trick ling hillside springs to ll up empty jugs for free. "Sometimes your dirty clothes pile up," said Carlos Garcia, an unemployed construction worker who used up eight hours one day lling containers at a spring. Neighborhood water shortages have sparked more than 400 protests countrywide in the rst ve months of the year, according to the Vene zuelan Observatory of Social Conict. Caracas once had a worldclass water system, pumping water from far-off reservoirs over towering mountains into the valley that cradles the city. Now its pipes are burst ing, pumps are failing and a small herd of cattle grazes at the bottom of the Mariposa reservoir outside the city, feeding on grass that should be deep underwater. A lack of rain compounds the lack of maintenance, ex perts say. Jose Maria de Viana, for mer president of Caracas' state-run water provider, Hidrocapital, blames incom petence, and dismisses the government's explanation that the rainy season has been slow to kick off and replen ish drained reservoirs. The system was designed to see the city through dry spells, he said. "Without staying on top of the problems every day, we'll have less and less water in the city," De Viana said. "We'll only have more protesting and rage." Ofcials at Hidrocapital and Venezuela's Ecosocial ism and Water Ministry did not respond to requests for comment by The Associated Press. Well driller Fernando Go mez at the rm Venezuela Pump Engineering said calls have spiked in the last two months from people des perate for water. The phone rings four or ve times a day, compared to one or two calls a week a year ago. He said the company's single drilling rig doesn't get a rest. "Everybody in the world wants it now," Gomez said. Even the U.S. Embassy has drilled its own well in case the city supply fails. Most of the private wells are going in illegally. The law requires a permit before drilling starts, but the paperwork can take up to two years, and few are willing to wait. When ofcials stick their nose in, a building's residents ask the best-connected among them to pull strings. But drilling isn't an op tion for the vast majority of Venezuelans who have seen wages pulverized by a collapsing currency and vedigit ination. The minimum wage amounts to less than $2 a month. Down a maze of narrow passageways in Petare, one of Venezuela's most sprawling slums, Carmen Rivero said water is a source of celebration when it ows, and anger when it doesn't which is most of the time. She said the neighborhood recently went three months without tap water, and before that, a full eight months. Residents get by lling water barrels from a spring and service from city water trucks. One night recently, a sur prise surge of water made her neighborhood break out in joy. "Everybody shouted, 'Ay, the water came!'" said Rive ro, who rushed to a spigot in her home. She lled up blue tub, like an oversized children's swimming pool, which hogs the corner of her small concrete and red-brick shack. Frustration over water recently erupted, driving resi dents into Petare's streets in protest, some mothers carry ing their children. Rivero said heavily armed national guard soldiers wearing riot gear met them, threatening arrest if they didn't return home. "You're a human being, and you know we can't do anything without water," Rivero recalled telling a sol dier. He replied that his fam ily was just like hers, but he had to follow orders.

CITIZEN TRIBUNE SportsEEE-2 Monday, June 25, 2018 YEKATERINBURG, Russia (AP) Seven teams have won their rst two World Cup matches, and six of them are through to the next round. The exception is Mexico. El Tri still may need points to secure a place in the round of 16 for a seventh consecutive World Cup. Victories over defending champion Germany and South Korea werent quite enough. If Sweden beats Mexico on Wednesday and Germany beats South Korea, three teams would be tied atop Group F with six points, sending it to tiebreakers that start with the best goal differential. Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa said there wasnt any panic when he and his teammates learned they had unnished business in their nal game. We knew that we were going to play for rst place against Sweden, Ochoa told reporters Sunday. This result wasnt going to change anything. If Mexico and South Korea both win, Mexico would win the group and every other team would be tied with three points. Sweden hasnt made it to the second round since 2006. And like Mexico, six points wouldnt necessarily be enough to advance. The Swedes might end up needing to win by two goals, depending on what Germany does. Mexico upset Germany 1-0 in its opener and then dispatched South Korea 2-1. It looked like those results would be enough for Mexico to advance, but then Toni Kroos scored deep into extra time to give Germany a 2-1 win over Sweden, setting up the various scenarios that will come into play during Tuesdays simultaneous matches.SHOW OF SUPPORTSwedish midelder Jimmy Durmaz was subjected to racial attacks from fans on social media after the loss to Germany. Durmaz entered the game as a substitute, and his foul gave Germany the free kick that set up Kroos game-winner. Durmaz was born in Sweden to ethnic Assyrian parents who emigrated from Turkey. Hes been called a terrorist, and vitriol has also been directed at his family. The online abuse was reported to police. In a show of unity, the team and coach Janne Andersson stood with Durmaz as the player read a statement Sunday before a training session, calling the attacks completely unacceptable. I am proud to play in the Swedish national team, Durmaz said. I will never let any racists destroy that pride. We must all stand against all forms of racism.SCORING DIFFICULITYA two-goal victory by Sweden would guarantee it a spot in the next round. But thats easier said than done. Sweden has just two goals for the tournament, by Andreas Granqvist and Ola Toivonen. Marcus Berg, who had eight goals in qualifying, has been held scoreless despite a team-high six scoring opportunities through two games.WALL OF OCHOAWhile Mexicos defense has been solid, Ochoa is the biggest reason that El Tri have given up just one goal in the tournament. Known by supporters as The Great Wall of Ochoa, he has been a steadying presence for Mexico and has a tournament-high 14 saves. He stopped nine shots against Germany and ve against South Korea. Denmarks Kasper Schmeichel is next with 10 saves.Even with two wins, Mexicos place in next round not secure APMexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa cel ebrates after the group F match between Mexico and South Korea at the 2018 soc cer World Cup in the Rostov Arena in Rostov-on-Don, Russia, Saturday. (AP) Even before the start of the World Cup, the photographs invited mockery. There was a picture of Lionel Messi gazing into the distance with his right hand on the back of a goat. Another of Messi cradling a kid goat in his arms. The theme of the Paper magazine shoot and accompanying 2,000-word article was that Messi was soccers G.O.A.T. greatest of all time. As if it wasnt bad enough that his performance in this World Cup has contradicted the publications assertion, chief rival Cristiano Ronaldo has passive-aggressively mocked him by growing a goatee and stroking his chin when scoring. Ronaldo has scored four times in his rst two games of this competition and Portugal can advance to the round of 16 with a tie with offensively decient Iran on Monday. Messi is yet to score and his tournament will be over unless Argentina defeats Nigeria on Tuesday and Iceland fails to beat already-advanced Croatia. The disparate positions of the generations two best players reect not their respective abilities Messi is the better player, period or even that of the players around them. Neither has noteworthy support. What are noticeably different are the mind-sets of their teams. Portugal knows what it is. Argentina doesnt, which explains the reports about players revolting against coach Jorge Sampaoli. Sampaoli has been criticized for everything from the teams lack of rhythm to substitution choices, but his greatest failure has been his inability to bestow the team with a sense of identity and purpose. Whatever their shortcomings, the teams on which Diego Maradona played in the 1986 and 1990 World Cup tournaments had that. The freedom coach Carlos Bilardo granted Maradona was offset by pragmatism in almost every other part of the eld. Maradonas job was to win games; his teammates was to not lose them. The strategy could produce soccer that bordered on unwatchable, as was the case when Argentina was the tournament runner-up in 1990, but it was effective. Argentina had some of its most well-rounded teams in the era that immediately followed Maradonas. Argentina continued to play with a No. 10 the jersey and role inherited by Ariel Ortega, Juan Roman Riquelme and Messi but started to think of itself as more than a one-man team. The country is as imprisoned by the memories of those teams as it is by its visions of Maradona. The Argentina of today doesnt have top-to-bottom talent necessary to gradually build an attack from the back as it did then, but it continues to try. Nor will it revert to Bilardos cynical tactics. What remains is a team that is neither here nor there and that does little more than wait for Messi to magically create the identity it lacks. Compare that to Portugal. Ronaldos team has no illusions about what it is. It makes no attempt to play attractively, content as it is to sit back, absorb pressure and take whatever goals Ronaldo can provide. The Portuguese played like that not only in their tournament-opening tie with heavily favored Spain, but also in their victory over underdog Morocco. Portugal had a similar mentality when it won the European Championship in 2016. The triumph was the most signicant of Ronaldos international career, but Ronaldo wasnt on the eld for the crowning moment, as an injury forced him to the bench only 25 minutes into the nal against France. Portugal won 1-0 in overtime. Portugal played to not lose and didnt. The team is doing that again. As unlikely as Ronaldo is to lift the most coveted trophy in sports, his path there is considerably less perilous than Messis. Messi has to compensate for more than the shortage of talent around him. He has to make up for the teams lack of a philosophy, too.Argentinas lack of talent, philosophy making it impossible for Messi to succeed APArgentinas Lionel Messi reacts after the group D match between Argentina and Croatia at the 2018 soccer World Cup in Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, Thurs day.

Call 407-846-7600Looking For An Attorney... or Dog Groomer? I House Ad WASHINGTON (AP) America has waited a year to hear what special counsel Robert Mueller concludes about the 2016 election, meddling by the Russians and most of all what Donald Trump did or didn't do. But how much the na tion will learn about Muel ler's ndings is very much an open question. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein may end up wrestling with a dilemma similar to the one that tripped up red FBI director James Comey: how much to reveal about Trump's actions in the event the president is not indicted. Rosenstein, who lambasted Comey for disclosing nega tive information about Hillary Clinton despite not recommending her for pros ecution, may himself have to balance the extraordi nary public interest in the investigation against his admonition that investigators should not discuss alle gations against people they don't prosecute. The quandary under scores how there's no easy or obvious end game for the investigation, which last month reached its one-year anniversary. Though Mueller is expected to report his ndings to Rosenstein, there's no requirement that those conclusions be made public. And whatever he decides will unfold against the backdrop of a Justice Department inspector general report that reafrmed department protocol against making detailed public statements about people who aren't charged. "Those are going to be the hard questions at the end of Mueller's investigation: what is the nature of that report, and which if any parts are provided to Congress and the public," said Georgetown law pro fessor Marty Lederman, a former ofcial in the Jus tice Department's Ofce of Legal Counsel. "There's just no way for us to know what if any parts of those reports can be made public or should be made public or will be made public." The investigation has hit a critical phase. A forth coming decision by Trump and his lawyers on whether to sit for an interview with Mueller, who is examin ing whether the president sought to obstruct justice, could hasten the conclu sion of the investigation with regard to the White House. What happens next is unclear, though Mueller has been closely confer ring along the way with Rosenstein, the No. 2 Jus tice Department ofcial who appointed him special counsel. If he decides a crime was committed, it's theoretically possible he could seek a grand jury indictment, though that outcome is seen as highly questionable given a Justice Department legal opinion against charging a sitting president. Trump's lawyers say Mueller's team has indicated that it plans to follow that guidance. Depending on his ndings, he also could seek to name Trump as an unindicted coconspirator in a case against other defendants, an aggres sive step taken by the spe cial prosecutor who investigated President Richard Nixon. The regulations require Mueller to report his nd ings condentially to Rosenstein, who would then decide how and whether to share with Congress. Lawmakers and the public would almost certainly de mand access to that report, no matter the conclusion; a determination of wrong doing would presumably be forwarded to Congress to begin impeachment pro ceedings, while a nding that no crime was commit ted would be publicly trum peted by Republicans as vindication of the president. Spokespeople for Muel ler and the Justice Depart ment declined to comment on the options under con sideration. The easiest avenue for public disclosure in any criminal investigation is an indictment in which pros ecutors lay out their allegations. But options are much trickier when cases close without prosecution. In Clinton's case, Comey held an extraordinary news conference in which he said Clinton did indeed have classied information on her private email server and branded her and her aides as "extremely careless." But he concluded his remarks by recommending against charges, saying no reason able prosecutor would bring a case. That decision was con demned last May by Rosen stein, who said "we do not hold press conferences to release derogatory information about the subject of a declined criminal investiga tion." Inspector General Michael Horowitz echoed that criticism in a report this month that accused Comey of breaking from protocol. And Comey's suc cessor, Christopher Wray, further rebuked Comey at a congressional hearing last week, saying, "I think the policies the department has governing commenting publicly about uncharged conduct are there for good reason." Solomon Wisenberg, the deputy independent counsel in the 1990s investigation involving President Bill Clinton, said he struggled to envision Rosenstein making public the extent of Mueller's ndings if there's no indictment "because it would be completely inconsistent with the criticism of Comey and it wouldn't be right. It wouldn't be the right thing to do." "It's long been considered unethical to not charge someone but smear them," he said. Lederman, however, said he thought it made sense to publicly release what inves tigators found about Rus sian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, especially if it could be relevant to helping combat the problem in the future. "I don't think there's a problem to the extent the re port would be less focused on what Trump did wrong in the past and is focused on his ability or willingness to deal with the Russia threat in the future," he said. As the investigation inch es toward resolution, there's not much reliable precedent to predict the outcome here. Independent counsel Ken Starr issued a public report on Bill Clinton, but his ap pointment came under a dif ferent law. A special coun sel investigation into the 2003 leak of a CIA ofcer's identity resulted in criminal charges against a Bush ad ministration White House ofcial, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby," but produced no public report summarizing all the ndings of probe. Regardless of the conclusion, the public clamor for a full accounting may make it impossible for Mueller to wind up his investigation with only minimal comment, said Bill Jeffress, one of Libby's lawyers. "If that conclusion is sim ply Mueller announcing, 'I've wound up my investi gation and haven't indicted anyone else,' nobody's go ing to be satised with that."

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clif ford, was supposed to meet with prosecutors from the U.S. attorney's ofce in Manhattan in preparation for a possible grand jury appearance as they work to assemble a case against Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. But after several news organizations, including The Associated Press, reported on the meeting, two prosecutors called Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, and told him that they were concerned about media attention in the case, he said. "I was shocked at that response," Avenatti said. Avenatti offered to move the meeting to another lo cation and reiterated that Daniels who he says has been cooperating with prosecutors for months was ready to go forward with the meeting, but they called back to cancel it, he said. The meeting has not been rescheduled and prosecutors offered no other explanation for the cancellation, he said. Daniels has said she had sex with Trump in 2006 when he was married, which Trump has denied. As part of their investiga tion into Cohen, prosecutors have been examining the $130,000 payment that was made to Daniels as part of a condentiality agreement days before the 2016 presidential election. "We believe cancel ing the meeting because the press has now caught wind of it is ridiculous," Avenatti wrote in an email to Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicolas Roos. "We do not think it was any secret that at some point you were going to meet with my cli ent." In response, Roos ac cused Avenatti of leaking the details of the meeting an allegation that Avenatti was "patently false" and said it called into question Avenatti's "com mitment to maintaining the required condentiality" of what is discussed in the meeting with Daniels. "Such condentiality is critical to the diligence, fairness, and integrity of this, and indeed all, investigations conducted by this Ofce," Roos wrote. "This is not our preferred approach, and a step we are only rarely forced to take, but we are left with no choice." A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's ofce in Manhattan had declined to comment on the meeting earlier Sunday night and did not immediately re spond to messages seeking comment on the cancellation. Daniels is suing to invalidate the condentiality agreement that prevents her from discussing the alleged relationship with Trump. She argues the nondisclosure agreement should be invalidated be cause Cohen, signed it, but the president did not. Daniels and Avenatti have also turned over documents in response to a subpoena from fed eral prosecutors about the $130,000 that Daniels was paid, a person familiar with the matter said. They weren't authorized to dis cuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. Daniels' interview had been in preparation for a possible grand jury appear ance in the federal investi gation into Cohen's busi ness dealings, the person familiar with the matter said. If prosecutors bring a case to a grand jury, they could call witnesses to testify under oath and the grand jury would decide whether to bring criminal charges with a written indictment. Daniels was supposed to appear before a grand jury on June 15, but the appear ance was canceled after she voluntarily agreed to come in for the interview that had been scheduled for Monday, according to an email from Roos to Avenatti. In April, FBI agents raided Cohen's home, of ce and hotel room as part of a probe into his business dealings and investiga tors were seeking records about the nondisclosure agreement that Daniels had signed, among other things. Cohen had said he paid Daniels himself, through a limited liability company known as Essential Consultants, LLC, and that "neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither re imbursed me for the pay ment, either directly or indirectly." In May, Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's attor neys, said the president had repaid Cohen for the $130,000 payment to Dan iels, contradicting Trump's prior claims that he didn't know the source of the money.

Sharks are the stars of a splashy new exhibit hall at the New York Aquarium that marks a major step in the beachfront facility's recovery from the devastating impact of 2012's Superstorm Sandy. Set in a shiny new build ing just behind the famed Coney Island boardwalk, "Ocean Wonders: Sharks!" with its largest tank at 379,000-gallons is set to open June 30 while work continues on the rest of the aquarium's 14-acre campus, more than half of which remains closed almost six years after Sandy. The Wildlife Conservation Society, which runs the aquarium along with the Bronx Zoo and other city zoos, was about to break ground on "Sharks!" when Sandy knocked out power and ooded exhibits, elec trical equipment and ad ministrative ofces at the aquarium, which is situated on the narrow peninsula that forms Brooklyn's Coney Island. "I honestly thought in that rst 20 minutes that we'd lost the aquarium," the facility's director, Jon For rest Dohlin, said. The new shark exhibit was put on hold while staff ers worked around the clock to rescue as many animals as possible and reopen the parts of the aquarium that weren't too badly damaged. Dohlin called the delayed debut of "Sharks!" a great step forward for the aquar ium. The new exhibit is housed in a 57,500-square-foot building whose undulating shapes are clad in a "shim mer wall" of aluminum tiles that evoke scales or a school of sardines. Inside there are 12 species of sharks as well as six species of skates and rays. Dozens of other sea creatures from loggerhead sea turtles to striped bass join them in three massive tanks and several smaller ones. Sharks swim overhead in the tunnel-shaped coral reef exhibit, creating the illusion that the visitor is another ocean dweller. The other two big tanks are stocked with marine life not from the tropics but from the wa ters off New York, including red and white anemones, purple sea urchins and pink starsh that few New Yorkers would peg as neighbors. "If you go swimming in the water above your waist you're swimming with these animals," Dohlin said. "We want people to understand that there's all this cool stuff in our water." The $158 million "Sharks!" exhibit is opening amid ongoing work on the rest of the aquarium, which won't fully reopen until 2020. Dohlin and other staff ers who lost their ofces to Sandy are still working out of trailers, and Dohlin said his trailer is parked almost underneath Coney Island's Cyclone roller coaster. "All day long I can hear the rumble and feel the rum ble and hear the screams," he said. "I thought, 'I'm go ing to go crazy.' My entire trailer shakes. And now I don't even notice it. It's only when it stops that I feel it." The shark tank will use its toothy predators as bait to promote awareness of threats to marine ecosys tems including overshing and pollution. Susan Chin, the Wildlife Conservation Society's in-house architect who led the new building's design team in collaboration with the rm of Edelman Sultan Knox Wood and its consultants, said she grew up in New York without ever knowing much about the ocean habitats that surround the city. "Wow, we have seahorses under the Brooklyn Bridge?" Chin said. "You've been living in this city all your life and you didn't know that. That's our job, to open people's eyes to na ture. And to help them make that connection." The exhibit's showpiece is a huge tank represent ing the Hudson Canyon, a submarine canyon that starts near the mouth of the Hudson River between New York and New Jersey. There are sand tiger sharks with fearsome teeth, sandbar sharks with tall dorsal ns and nurse sharks huddled together on the oor of the tank. There are also small sh like permits and jack crevalles, a loggerhead tur tle named Blue and a rough tail stingray named Ray Charles both female. Other sections of the ex hibit decry the plastic trash choking the oceans and promote sustainable shing practices. Sharks are killed both by targeted shing for their ns and as bycatch, caught by trawlers and long-line shermen seeking other species. A main message of the exhibit is that sharks have more to fear from humans that humans have to fear from sharks. "We're really pushing against the tide of the per ception of sharks that's been created by popular culture," Dohlin said. "Whether it's 'Jaws' or Shark Week, we know that people have a very monochromatic fear of sharks. They're large great whites that will eat you, that's what people think. The truth is, of course, they're very diverse, they're very important, they're get ting wiped out. So that's something that we really want to turn on its head."

The scandals involving former Michigan State team doctor Larry Nassar, who was also a physician for USA Gymnastics, and Richard Strauss, a former Ohio State doctor, reveal how the trust and intimacy granted to team physicians can also provide cover for sexual predators. "It's almost this god g ure that people don't want to question," said Dani Moft, who leads a master's program in athletic training at Idaho State University and researches sexual harassment in college sports. "They are thought to be these people who are not going to make mistakes." Groups that represent team doctors say it's hardly the only profession shaken by sex scandals, and they largely blame the recent cases on a couple bad seeds. Still, the fallout has left some doctors and colleges scrutinizing their practices. Some are ramping up the use of exam chaperones medical staff who are brought into the room to monitor the doctor's work. Purdue University says it's crafting a new policy requiring chaperones for team doctors, even if students don't request one. Michi gan State updated a similar policy last year. Physicians, too, are in creasingly bringing in chap erones for their own protection, said Dr. Chad Asplund, president of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine. In his work at Georgia Southern Univer sity, Asplund said, he has become more diligent about calling for a chaperone any time he examines a female athlete or asks a patient to remove clothing. "It's safety for the patient and safety for me," Asplund said. "I think people are be coming a lot more protect ed and a lot more cautious about doing the right thing." News of the Nassar case prompted leaders at the University of Wisconsin to launch a wide review of their own practices, includ ing safety measures guid ing team doctors. Ofcials declined to share details, saying the study has yet to wrap up. Athletic trainers, who work alongside team doctors and treat minor injuries, have also been alarmed by the allegations. In the Nas sar case, two trainers were reportedly told of Nassar's abuse but failed to stop it. Moft, at Idaho State, said she's adding lectures on sexual abuse and is help ing other colleges develop their own training, which she says has long been over looked in a male-dominated eld. "It's something that is go ing to be talked about a lot more. There's just so much education that has to be done," she said. The National Athletic Trainers' Association responded by issuing new guidance to members, tell ing them how to identify abuse. Trainers are also be ing told to report misconduct to legal authorities rst rather than university ofcials, who in some cases have been accused of keeping accusations quiet. Some colleges, though, say it's too soon to make changes. At the University of Iowa, athletics ofcials said they're "following the national conversation" to see if updates are needed. Others declined to com ment, including the univer sities of Michigan and Illi nois. Both recent cases have cast light on a role that typically operates behind the scenes but can still carry great power. Deci sions made by team doctors can shape an athlete's ca reer, determining how long they'll be out with an injury or whether they're even t enough to make a team. That power, coupled with the familiarity they often develop with younger ath letes, creates a dynamic that is ripe for abuse, said Dr. Saul Marks, a sports psychiatrist at the University of Toronto. "Athletes are especially vulnerable at this age. They're looking for guid ance and growth, and so the intensity in the relation ships can be stronger," said Marks, who has also served as a doctor for Canada's na tional diving team. "As peo ple become closer, bound ary crossings can become easier to slide into without realizing what's happen ing." When abuse does occur, the risk tied to reporting it is often enough to silence vic tims whose athletic careers hang in the balance, said Sue Ann Van Dermyden, the head of a California law rm that helps colleges investigate sexual miscon duct. "They recognize by bringing it forward, their dreams could be shattered," she said. In April, a state investiga tion in Michigan found that Nassar twisted the power and privacy of his job for abuse. Over time, he con vinced gymnasts that his vaginal "treatments" had a medical purpose. And with no chaperone policy, there was often no one there to question it.
Saturday, June 30, 2018 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page E13 BRUSSELS (AP) The leaders of 16 countries sur vived the "frank talk" of an emergency meeting on immigration and emerged with a veneer of common purpose Sunday as the Eu ropean Union enters a potentially vital week for its unity. German Chancellor An gela Merkel said the meeting produced "a lot of goodwill" to resolve differ ences over how to manage the refugees and economic migrants who are willing to risk their lives to reach Eu rope. The leaders of several more countries joined Italy and France in endorsing the idea of setting up centers in Africa to screen potential asylum-seekers for eligibility before they set out for another continent. The talks were "frank and open," but "we don't have any concrete consequences or conclusions," Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said. The prevailing honesty and benevolence on display Sunday barely lower the stakes for a full EU sum mit opening Thursday. Four member countries in east ern Europe refused to take part in the meeting because of demands that they take in more asylum-seekers to ease the burden elsewhere. New Italian Premier Gi useppe Conte presented a plan that argues existing EU asylum rules are obsolete and "paradoxical." The cur rent rules effectively mean migrants only can apply for asylum in the country where they rst arrive, usually Italy or Greece. Conte said his 10-point proposal would be a "para digm shift" in how Europe approaches migration and that he was "decidedly sat ised" with the outcome of Sunday's meeting. "We have given the right direction for the debate underway. We'll see each other Thursday," he said. Merkel and French Presi dent Emmanuel Macron held out little hope they would be able to gather all 28 nations behind a single immigration plan at the up coming summit. Merkel, who is battling a domestic political crisis with her coalition partners over migration, said she was seeking "bilateral and trilateral" deals to cope with short-term migration pressures. EU nations, she said, have to see "how can we help each other without al ways having to wait for all 28, but by thinking what's important to whom." The idea of pre-screening Europe-bound asylumseekers in North Africa gained support from several leaders amid the escalating tensions that threaten to undermine EU cohesion. Paradoxically, the EU's immigration policies are receiving renewed attention as the number of newcom ers reaching Europe has dropped signicantly. The U.N.'s refugee agency forecasts that around 80,000 people will arrive to Europe by sea in 2018 if current trends continue but the EU's political turmoil over the topic has soared. Anti-migrant parties and governments in Hungary and Italy have been fomenting public fears of foreigners and have won support doing so. "Some are trying to use the situation in Europe to create political tension and to play with fear," French President Emmanuel Ma cron said. "We must not give in. When someone has the right to protection and asylum, we should grant it." A failure to nd agreement could threaten the EU's border-free travel area, one of the biggest ac complishments of the bloc's 60-year history. Despite the different per spectives, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said, "progress is possible on Thursday." Encouraged by a deal with Turkey that has slashed the number of people arriv ing from there by 97 per cent since 2015, the EU ap peared ready to greenlight plans to set up screening centers in Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Niger and Tunisia. Plans to set up migrant reception centers in Albania are also under discussion. Macron said "the method that we are going to adopt" would involve "work ing together vis-a-vis the countries of transit and ori gin outside the European Union." He mentioned Libya the main jumping off point for countries bound for Europe other African coun tries and the Balkans. Noting that migrant ar rivals have dropped signicantly, Macron said: "it's a political crisis that Europe and the European Union is mostly living today." Meanwhile, Spain's San chez urged his EU partners to help Spain deal with a growing number of arrivals across the Mediterranean Sea. The UNHCR says around 40,000 people have arrived in Europe by sea so far this year, some 16,000 in Italy, 12,000 in Greece and 12,000 in Spain. As with everything linked to migration in Europe, even the meeting in Brussels did not please everybody. Four eastern EU countries the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia re fused to attend and reject taking in migrants in gen eral. PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) In another sign of detente following the summit between leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. Pres ident Donald Trump, North Korea has decided to skip one of the most symbolic and politically charged events of its calendar: the annual "anti-U.S. imperialism" rally marking the start of the Korean War. Fist-pumping, ag-waving and slogan-shouting masses of Pyongyang resi dents normally assemble each year for the rally to kick off a month of antiU.S., Korean War-focused events designed to strengthen nationalism and unity. It all culminates on July 27, which North Korea celebrates as a national holiday called the day of "Victory in the Fatherland Liberation War." Last year's event was held in Kim Il Sung Square with a reported 100,000 people attending. North Korea even issued special antiU.S. postage stamps. Ofcials had no on-therecord comment on the decision not to hold the event this year. But Associ ated Press staff in the North Korean capital conrmed Monday that it would not be held. North Korea has notice ably toned down its antiWashington rhetoric over the past several months to create a more conciliatory atmosphere for the summit and avoid souring attempts by both sides to reduce ten sions and increase dialogue. North Korea's state me dia were lled with reports, photos and video of the June 12 meeting between Trump and Kim in Singapore. A 42-minute documentary-style news special was aired on the state television network two days after the summit and has been re peated frequently since, meaning that by now there are probably few North Koreans who are unaware of the changes in the air. For many North Koreans, the program was also quite likely the rst time they had ever seen what Trump looks like. Still, North Korea's handling of the changes and how it presents them to its people remains highly nu anced. So far, it hasn't said much about what Washington is interested in the most denuclearization. But it has made signicantly fewer references to its need to have nuclear weapons than it was making last year, when Kim was test-launch ing long-range missiles at a record pace and tensions with Washington neared the boiling point. North Korea's decidedly less strident posture these days underscores the deli cate position it nds itself in after decades of touting the United States as its archen emy. State media referred to Trump quite deferentially in their reports of the sum mit, calling him by his full name and adding the title of president of the United States of America itself a somewhat jarring contrast to the way it normally spits out merely the surname of U.S. ofcials, with no titles. Considering how its rela tions with Washington could quickly slip back into acri mony if the difcult process of negotiating denuclearization and the lifting of trade sanctions breaks down, it remains unclear how much, or if at all, North Korea in tends to recalibrate its other propaganda and indoctrination efforts. Getting rid of all the anti-American propaganda would be a Herculean task. The 1950-53 Korean War, and the devastation the country suffered at the hands of the U.S. and its al lies, remain a major part of every North Korean's edu cation. Negative portrayals of Americans as big-nosed goblins are a common sight at elementary schools and kindergartens and exhorta tions to beware of American aggression, deceit and brutality are a staple message of textbooks and at "class education" centers around the country. Anti-American slogans can also still be seen in Pyongyang and throughout the countryside, though they are not that numerous. And while softening its criticism of the current U.S. administration, North K orea has stepped up its attacks on "capitalist values" in general an oblique warning that its diplomatic outreach to the world should not be taken to mean it's ready to throw away its socialist ide als anytime soon.
