Henry then did something nice for the law enforcement agency which had just awarded him — he gave them a car. Sheriff Eric Watson presented Henry the BCSO Life Saver Award, which he called one of the department’s most prestigious. On April 4, the 911 emergency communication center received a call saying her husband was having a heart attack. “Constable Henry was the first “Constable Henry started that whole chain of events by his professionalism.” — Lt. Bob Hancock one on the scene. He assessed the situation and contacted 911 and relayed the message the man was having a heart attack,” said Lt. Bob Hancock. “BCSO patrol units were in the area and vectored in on the location. Once they arrived, they took over the CPR from Constable Henry and continued it.” See HENRY, Page 15 Banner photo, BRIAN GRAVES CONSTABLE WAyNE HENRy (third from left) presents a car to the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office for use in volunteer and auxiliary programs.

An em‘power’ing woman Samantha Coleman top-ranked in APC lifting PERSONALITY PROFILE By SARALYN NORKUS Banner Sports Writer Years ago, if you had told Samantha Coleman she would become the American Powerlifting Committee top-ranked super heavyweight female powerlifter and secondbest female powerlifter of all time, chances are she wouldn’t have believed you. What has now become an exciting reality for the powerful 35-year-old woman began with some intrigue in her younger years. “When I was younger, I was interested in it and always had natural strength. I grew up in a small town in Middle Georgia, where they are very conservative and didn’t encourage women to do strength sports. On top of that, I was relentlessly picked on for being as strong as I was. I’d always wanted to get into it, but didn’t think it was acceptable for women to be doing that,” Coleman described. It wasn’t until Coleman went to the University of Georgia and found herself surrounded by strong women that she began to consider seriously taking up weightlifting. She put in a year at the campus in Athens, Ga., doing shot put and discus before transferring to Clayton State Kyle and Samantha Coleman and taking over the first thrower position. Fast forward to 2012, when the soon-tobe dominant female powerlifter began to venture back into the gym. “Back in 2012, I lost a lot of weight and I got weak. I had always been strong and had done track and field, but I just couldn’t lift the things that I had been able to,” she explained. “I was looking at getting into powerlifting and then I met my husband, who happens to be an excellent coach. Kyle showed me the basics and I’d never done just weight training until I met him. I picked up a bar and was like, ‘Is this heavy?’ They looked and told me that it was 300 pounds.” For Coleman, the foray into powerlifting was aided by her age. “By the time you turn 30, you know what your body can and can’t do. You can push the limits but you also know when it’s time to sit down. After hitting my 30s, I just felt like I had nothing to lose. That’s when I decided to see what I could do with it,” Coleman commented. “When I went into this sport I had absolutely no expectations, I was just doing it for fun. That’s probably the best attitude to have.” She began competing in August 2013, and that first competition will forever hold extra special meaning, as it was also where after a year and a half of dating, she and Kyle got engaged. “It was my first meet and then afterwards, he proposed to me. He was going to See WOMAN, Page 15 The final touches are being put in place for Bradley County’s new stormwater ordinance. Tony Knight, county stormwater program administrator, presented the thick document to the members of the Stormwater Advisory Board during a recent meeting. The board was not able to take action due to lack of a quorum, but will be meeting Tuesday at 4 p.m., in the Planning Department’s conference room. Knight showed the county’s stormwater permit from the state of Tennessee noting, “That’s what’s driving all of the ordinances we’re discussing.” He also had a new stormwater management plan. “It is a requirement of the permit,” Knight said. “It describes how Bradley County implements the permit.” It includes the subjects of public outreach and education; illicit discharge detection and elimination program; controlling runoff from new developments, redevelopments and construction sites; pollution prevention and operation and maintenance from municipal operations; and monitoring. “There are things we need to comply with and a lot of things in the plan reference the ordinance,” Knight said. He said a plan has been in place, but the one presented is updated. Knight said the plan itself does not have to be formally adopted by the Bradley County Commission, “But, it would be good if it is.” Inspector Amanda WhitleyBaliles said the plan is essentially “just an explanational manual for us to operate on with more detail.” Knight said some of the things See PLAN, Page 15 Former county leader Jim Barger dies, 82 Woman recounts death experience By LARRY C.

BEIJING (AP) — The head of Taiwan’s ruling Nationalist Party called for more chances for the island to participate in international organizations following a meeting Monday with Chinese President Xi Jinping, whose government views the territory as a renegade province. Eric Chu also affirmed his party’s support for a consensus reached between Chinese and Taiwanese negotiators in 1992 that is interpreted by Beijing as a commitment to eventual unification. That stance is held as sacrosanct by China but has become increasingly unpopular among young Taiwanese who see their island as an independent country. Illustrating the matter’s delicacy, the party issued a statement saying that the “‘92 consensus” was the basis for dialogue, but that its exact meaning was open to interpretation. “We hope exchanges can deepen between the sides, and that on the basis of the “92 consensus,’ Taiwan will in future have even more international space to develop and even more opportunities in international organizations and activities,” the statement said. The sensitive unification issue is expected to feature prominently in next year’s Taiwanese presidential elections, in which Chu is considered a likely candidate. Speaking to reporters after his meeting with Xi, Chu said that Taiwan hopes not only to have I SEE BY THE BANNER A meeting of the Bradley County Governmental Law Library committee will be held on Tuesday at 9 a.m., in the office of the Director of the Cleveland Bradley County Public Library, 795 Church Street N.E.

Chu, a former accounting professor and mayor of Taiwan’s New Taipei City, spoke at a news conference following his talks with Xi. No Chinese officials attended the event, a reminder of the culture gap between China’s authoritarian one-party system and Taiwan’s freewheeling democracy. The Nationalists were driven to Taiwan by Mao Zedong’s Communists during the Chinese civil war in 1949, leading to decades of hostility between the sides. Chu, who took over as party leader in January, is the third Nationalist chairman to visit the mainland and the first since 2009. Relations between the sides began to warm in the 1990s, partly out of their common opposition to Taiwan’s formal independence from China, a position advocated by the island’s Democratic Progressive Party. While Beijing prefers to deal with the Nationalists exclusively, it has agreed to some degree of official talks between the two governments. Relations between the two parties “do not entirely equal crossstrait relations,” but are an important component of relations between the two sides,” Chu said.

The spouses of service members and civilian women who live or work near military facilities are especially vulnerable to being sexually assaulted, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said in a report. Yet they “remain in the shadows” because neither is counted in surveys conducted by the Defense Department to determine the prevalence of sexual assaults within the ranks, the report said. “I don’t think the military is being honest about the problem,” Gillibrand said in an interview. The senator said her analysis of 107 sexual assault cases found punishments that were too lenient and the word of the alleged assailant was more likely to be believed than the victim. Less than a quarter of the cases went to trial and just 11 resulted in conviction for a sex crime. Female civilians were the victims in more than half the cases, according to Gillibrand, an outspoken advocate for an overhaul of the military justice system. In its annual report on sexual assaults in the military released Friday, the Defense Department reported progress in staunching the epidemic of sexual assaults. It estimated that sex crimes are decreasing and more victims are choosing to report them â€” a sign that there is more confidence that offenders will be held accountable. Laura Seal, a Defense Department spokeswoman, said the department does not have authority to include civilians in its surveys. In one of the cases Gillibrand reviewed, an airman allegedly pinned his ex-girlfriend down and then raped her. During the investigation, two other civilian victims stepped forward to accuse the same airman of sexual assault. One of them, the wife of another service member, awoke in the night to find the airman in bed with her. Two of his fingers were inside her vagina. The investigating officer recommended the airman be courtmartialed. If convicted, he faced a lengthy prison term. But the investigator’s superiors decided against a trial. They used administrative procedures to discharge the airman under “other than honorable conditions.” The Air Force said the victims preferred this course of action. Two of them had decided they “wanted no part in the case,” according to the Air Force, while the third said he did not want to testify. To Gillibrand, the outcome was suspicious and suggested the victims may have been intimidated. “It’s frustrating because you look at the facts in these cases and you see witnesses willing to come forward, getting the medical exam and either eventually withdrawing their case or the investigators deciding that her testimony wasn’t valid or believable,” she said. The report said the case files contradict the Pentagon’s assertion that military commanders will be tough on service members accused of sex crimes. Gillibrand has backed legislation that would remove commanders from the process of deciding whether serious crimes, including sexual misconduct cases, go to trial. That judgment would rest with seasoned military attorneys who have prosecutorial experience. The Pentagon is opposed to the change. Gillibrand’s request for the case files followed a February 2014 Associated Press investigation into the U.S. military’s handling of sexual assault cases in Japan that revealed a pattern of random and inconsistent judgments in which most offenders are not incarcerated. AP obtained through the Freedom of Information Act more than 1,000 reports of sex crimes involving U.S. military personnel based in Japan between 2005 and early 2013. To determine whether the same situation existed at major U.S. bases, Gillibrand asked then-Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel for the details of sexual assault cases investigated and AP photo SEN.

TOP DOLLAR PAID FOR GOLD & OTHER ITEMS 5301 BRAINERD ROAD (423) 499-9162 RICK DAVIS GOLD & DIAMONDS adjudicated from 2009 to 2014 at four large U.S. military bases: the Army’s Fort Hood in Texas, Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia, the Marine Corps’ Camp Pendleton in California and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. In December, nearly 10 months later, the Pentagon provided case files just for 2013, Gillibrand said, and those 107 cases were delivered only after former Sen. Carl Levin, then chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, intervened. At the time, Gillibrand led the committee’s military personnel panel. The refusal to provide the data, Gillibrand’s report said, “calls into question the department’s commitment to transparency and getting to the root of the problem.” Seal said the scope of Gillibrand’s request was “extraordinary.” The senator and the department “came to an agreement to provide a subset of the documents originally requested.” Gillibrand said she still wants the files from the other years. The senator also questioned whether the 107 cases represented the actual total for the four bases. There were five for Wright-Patterson even though the base told AP its legal office had received nine allegations of REGIONAL BRIEFS McLeod collection of Elvis memorabilia sells at auction HOLLY SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) — An auctioneer’s gavel has banged “sold” for hundreds of Elvis Presley photos, records, figurines, cutouts, clocks and other kitsch collected by the late Paul McLeod. They sold Saturday at the Holly Springs mansion that McLeod dubbed “Graceland Too,” auctioneer Greg Kinard told The Memphis Commercial Appeal. He said he hasn’t figured the total, and doesn’t know whether it will be released. McLeod’s collection originally sold in one online bid, which was thrown out because the bidder mistakenly thought he’d get the antebellum home as well as the collection. On Saturday, items were sold in more than 400 lots without any online bids. The house remains on the market. Two Cadillacs owned by McLeod sold separately at the February auction. Madison County firefighter dies from tree injuries JACKSON (AP) — Authorities say a Madison County firefighter has died from injuries he sustained when a tree fell on him. The Jackson Sun (http://bit.ly/1JiOoNF) reports firefighters had responded to a vehicle fire on Highway 18 Sunday morning. During the fire, Madison County Fire Chief Eric Turner said a tree broke and fell on top of firefighter Chris Blankenship, trapping him underneath the tree. Blankenship’s colleagues were able to free him and take him to Jackson-Madison County General Hospital, where he later died from his injuries. Blankenship had been a member of the Madison County Fire Department for 10 years. Authorities find missing Lenoir City boys LENOIR CITY (AP) — Authorities have found two East Tennessee boys who had been reported missing. According to the Lenoir City Police Department, 13-year-old Justin Brafford and 10-year-old Thomas Reece were found in Roane County on Sunday. The boys, who recently moved to the area, had been last seen at their Lenoir City home in nearby Loudon County late Friday night. Police didn’t elaborate on exactly where the boys were found, or why they left. A police representative told The Associated Press on Sunday that they’re safe. Google embeds engineers as professors MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) — Howard University freshman Alanna Walton knew something was different about the professor teaching her introduction to computer science course. First, there was her name: Professor Sabrina. She was an African American woman, kept office hours until 2 a.m. if that’s what it took to see everyone, and had an additional title: Google In Residence. “It was an awesome class,” said Alanna who has already chosen her major at the Washington D.C.-based university: computer science. In ongoing efforts to diversify Silicon Valley’s tech sector, Google is embedding engineers at a handful of Historically Black Colleges and Universities where they teach, mentor and advise on curriculum. Today 35 percent of African Americans receiving computer science degrees come from those schools, but they don’t make their way to Silicon Valley’s top tech firms. Google is typical — about 1 percent of its technical staffers are black. Last year a push by civil rights advocate Jesse Jackson prompted several dozen tech firms to release workforce diversity data which showed under-representation of African Americans, Latinos and women in the field. Work beginning for Alum Cave Trail restoration GATLINBURG (AP) — The National Park Service says restoration work on the popular Alum Cave Trail in the Smoky Mountains is beginning. A statement says work on the two-year project to improve visitor safety and stabilize eroding trail sections begins Monday. The trail will be closed Monday through Thursday from May 4 through Nov. 19 to accommodate the work. It will remain open on weekends and federal holidays. The work is taking place through the Trails Forever program, which is a partnership between Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Friends of the Smokies. Alum Cave Trail takes hikers to Arch Rock, Inspiration Point, Alum Cave Bluffs and Mt. Le Conte. Hikers can still reach Mt. Le Conte, LeConte Lodge, and the Le Conte Shelter through other trails. Feds: Developers must repair roads in Van Buren community SPENCER (AP) — A federal agency has ordered that developers must repair roads in the Hawks Bluff community on the Cumberland Plateau after making misrepresentations about them to potential buyers. The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced the action against International Land Consultants Inc. on Friday, saying that developers falsely claimed between 2004 and 2008 that they would maintain roads until they were taken over by the government of Van Buren County. But the agency found that the roads were not maintained, and that they were not taken over by the county. The company has been ordered to repair roads in the development to the federal agency’s satisfaction and consistent with an engineering report prepared by an independent consultant. The company and officers have admitted liability for their conduct. People do read small ads. You are reading one now. Call The Banner 472-5041 sexual assault in 2013. There were 15 cases for 2013 at Naval Station Norfolk, the largest naval installation in the world with 43,000 service members stationed there. In another case cited by Gillibrand, a married, 34-yearold Marine Corps staff sergeant received a reduction in rank and was docked $2,042 in pay after forcing a 17-year-old girl to have sex with him. They met on an online dating website called Plenty of Fish. She said she was 18 and he said he was 24. After a date, she returned with him to his room and had a glass of wine. He got on top of her and kept asking if she “wanted it,” according to the records. She repeatedly told him to stop and get off of her. He ignored her. The Air Force investigating officer said the victim was not a credible witness because there were glaring inconsistencies in her story. Under the terms of a pretrial agreement, a sexual assault charge was withdrawn. The Marine pleaded guilty to providing alcohol to a minor, making a false statement and adultery.

The event was celebrated by the installation of new hand-painted chimes. The chimes were created by repurposing a welding tank and two oxygen tanks donated by CHS alum Daniel Smith. The artist behind the piece is Cleveland High senior Chandler Nichols, right photo. Nichols first heard about the project from Laura Gheesling, her independent study art teacher. Chandler noted that the inspiration for the designs on the chimes came from different types of hanging fruit. Since the chimes would be hanging from supports, it fits the theme well. The fact the chimes were repurposed materials was also an important part of the project, “Showing people that we can turn these things (recycled gas cylinders) into something new and beautiful” was very close to Nichols’ heart. After graduation Nichols plans to attend the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa, where she will be majoring in aerospace engineering. Science students present studies Good time for a garden Special to the Banner Three Cleveland High School students presented their original scientific research at the annual meeting of the Tennessee Junior Academy of Science, at Belmont University in Nashville last month. The students completed their research as part of the Cleveland High School Aquatic Biology (Scientific Research) Honors class. The Cleveland High students included Landon Allison, Ben Cooper and Sarah Barnette. They designed, conducted, and carried out research, and wrote scientific papers. Their papers were read by a panel of scientists, and they were invited to present based on the quality of their work. A total of 24 students from across the state of Tennessee presented at Belmont. Following their presentations, they responded to questions asked by the panel. Each of these students will have their abstracts published in the Annual Proceedings of the Tennessee Junior Academy of Science.

Pelley is Teacher of Year in S.C. town Special to the Banner David Pelley, a 1982 graduate of Charleston High School and former resident of Cleveland, was recently named Teacher of the Year for White Knoll High School in Lexington, S.C. Pelley, the son of Max and Wanda Pelley of Charleston, has been a JROTC instructor in Lexington since retiring from the U.S. Marine Corps in 2006. He is the first JROTC instructor to be named Teacher of the Year in Lexington School District One. Pelley was the 2013 Bradley County Memorial Day speaker. He credits his classroom teaching style to the strong ethics and morals his parents demonstrated daily while he was growing up in rural Charleston. Pelley’s favorite saying is “The measure of a person is not what they do when they are up, it’s what they do when they are down — perseverance conquers all.” Pelley is married to the former Colleen McBennett of Lorain, Ohio, and they have a daughter and two sons. Pelley Students get ‘first’ state degrees Special to the Banner Two Cleveland High Students will become the first to receive the Occupational Diploma in Tennessee. Cleveland High School will have two students graduating with an OD during the school’s graduation this spring. Seniors Thomas Webster and Tajon Swafford have completed all requirements necessary to receive the award, which will be presented to them during graduation at 7 p.m. Friday, May 8, at Benny Monroe Stadium on the school campus. The CHS students will be the first recipients in the state to receive the new diploma since their school’s graduation date is earlier than other high schools that may also have students graduating with the diploma. Webster and Swafford have completed all requirements needed to receive the diploma from Cleveland High this year.

For the 2014-15 school year, Cleveland High School was selected to participate in the State Department of Education pilot program for the OD. Dr. Joy Hudson, supervisor of student services with Cleveland City Schools, said she is “happy to pilot the program because it gives our students an opportunity for employment.” She further stated, “It gives the students an opportunity to gain employment skills, to earn a living, to live independently and become productive tax-paying citizens.” The Occupational Diploma is a third diploma option for students with disabilities offering enhanced employment opportunities for students who may need preparation for work related life skills. The new diploma will be awarded in lieu of the general education or special education diplomas and is designed to prepare students to be gainfully employed after graduation and to increase positive outcomes for them. Requirements for receiving the Occupational Diploma, as outlined by the state, include five main areas of performance related to knowledge and skills necessary to participate successfully in the work world. Also, the students must be enrolled in Work Based Learning and have completed two years in the WBL program. Students receiving an OD may continue to work toward a general education diploma until the age of 22. Cleveland High School teacher Dr. Anita Brown is the work based learning coordinator and instructs the students who are working toward meeting requirements for an OD. Dr. Brown works closely with businesses in the community and culminates the program in the spring with an appreciation brunch for participants. www.clevelandbanner.com Cleveland Daily Banner—Monday, May 4, 2015—5 6—Cleveland Daily Banner—Monday, May 4, 2015 www.clevelandbanner.com www.clevelandbanner.com Cleveland Daily Banner—Monday, May 4, 2015—7 Ben Carson, famed neurosurgeon, running for president WASHINGTON (AP) — Ben Carson, retired neurosurgeon turned conservative star, has confirmed that he will seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Carson, who has never run for public office, is expected to be the only high-profile AfricanAmerican to enter the GOP’s presidential primary as he tries to parlay his success as an author and speaker into a competitive campaign against established politicians. “I’m willing to be part of the equation and therefore, I’m announcing my candidacy for president of the United States of America,” he said in an interview aired Sunday night by Ohio’s WKRC television station. He is set to make a more formal announcement during a speech from his native Detroit on Monday. Carson earned national acclaim during 29 years leading the pediatric neurosurgery unit of Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore, where he still lives. He directed the first surgery to separate twins connected at the back of the head. His career was notable enough to inspire the 2009 movie, “Gifted Hands,” with actor Cuba Gooding Jr. depicting Carson. “I see myself as a member of ‘we the people,’” he told The Associated Press in an interview earlier this year, arguing that his lack of experience is an asset. “I see myself as a logical American who has common sense,” he continued, “and I think that’s going to resonate with a lot of Americans, regardless of their political party.” The 63-year-old Detroit native remains largely unknown outside of conservative activists who have embraced him since his address at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast, where he offered a withering critique of the modern welfare state and the nation’s overall direction. The speech restated themes from Carson’s 2012 book “America the Beautiful,” but he excited conservatives by doing so with President Barack Obama sitting just feet away. Carson has since become a forceful critic of the nation’s first black president on everything from health care to foreign policy. Carson also offers himself as a counter to other notable African-American commentators with more liberal views. Most recently, Carson has spoken out on the unrest in the city where he lived for many years, where residents have protested and rioted in the wake of Freddie Gray dying while in custody of the Baltimore Police Department. In a Time op-ed, Carson decried the protests and related vandalism as “gross misconduct.” Carson moved to Palm Beach, Florida, after his retirement from Johns Hopkins, but he is announcing his campaign in his hometown of Detroit, where his mother raised him and his brother in poverty. He attributes his politics to his upbringing, often describing his neighborhood culture as one where residents celebrated any new announcement of government support. Still, he acknowledges that his mother received welfare aid, and he insists that he supports “a safety net for the people who need a safety net.” Carson is a staunch social conservative, opposing abortion rights and same-sex marriage, views he attributes to his personal faith as a practicing Christian. He has more complex views on health care and foreign policy, including statements that could put him at odds with the most conservative branches of his party. He has compared the Affordable Care Act, Obama’s signature legislative achievement, to slavery. Yet Carson also has blasted for-profit insurance companies; called for stricter regulations — including of prices — of health care services; and said government should offer a nationalized insurance program for catastrophic care. Carson pitches himself as a staunch supporter of Israel in its disputes with other Middle Eastern nations, and he has hammered Obama on his dealings in the region. But in his earlier writings, Carson criticized the U.S. for historically being too eager to wage war.

Martin O’Malley talks to reporters in Topeka, Kansas. O’Malley often casts his adopted hometown of Baltimore as the comeback city, a community that overcame the ravages of drugs and violence after he was swept into the mayor’s office. Now weeks before the former Maryland governor expects to launch his presidential campaign, Baltimore’s turnaround has been marred by rioting and unrest after the police-custody death of Freddie Gray. Things to know about situation in Baltimore BALTIMORE (AP) —Life is starting to return to normal in Baltimore after Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake lifted a city-wide curfew that was in effect for five nights. The curfew followed the riots and looting after the funeral last week of Freddie Gray, a 25year-old black man who died after he was injured while in police custody. Early Monday, there were no reports of confrontations between protesters and police as there had been on previous nights. The state of emergency is expected to remain in effect over the next two days while the Maryland National Guard continues to draw down about 3,000 troops brought in to keep the peace. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says more than 200 businesses were lost to the rioting and looting. Police say officers will continue to deploy to “areas of concern” and monitor protest activity. More recent protests have been mostly peaceful and even somewhat celebratory in tone since Friday’s announcement of charges against six officers involved in Gray’s arrest. Police said Sunday they had arrested 486 people since the unrest began, including 46 people on the final night of the curfew. —WHAT’S NEXT? IN COURT: The charges announced by State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby on Friday are just the start of the legal process. The officers have been released on bond. Two are suspended with pay and four are suspended without pay. Court records show a preliminary hearing is scheduled May 27 in Baltimore District Court for Lt. Brian Rice, Sgt. Alicia White, and officers Caesar Goodson, Garrett Miller, Edward Nero and William Porter. INVESTIGATIONS: In the coming weeks, the Justice Department is expected to release results of a review of the police department’s use of force practices. The department requested the review after several cases of physical force by officers resulted in millions of dollars in legal settlements and a public outcry. The FBI and Justice Department are conducting a separate investigation of Gray’s death for potential civil rights violations. Police officials and Mosby have indicated they will continue to investigate the Gray case. NEW LAWS: Gov. Hogan said Sunday that he would sign several bills this week related to public safety, law enforcement policy. The bill signing was originally planned for last Tuesday, then put on hold after violence erupted last Monday. One bill awaiting signing requires law enforcement agencies statewide to provide information to the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention about deaths in police custody and officer line-of-duty deaths. THE OFFICERS AND THEIR CHARGES The six officers charged range in age from 25 to 45. Three joined the force in 2012. Two others, Lt. Brian Rice and Officer Caesar Goodson, have been serving since the late 1990s. Goodson, the driver of the vehicle that transported Gray, faces the most serious charges. He’s been charged with second-degree depraved heart murder, which carries a possible 30-year sentence if convicted. The charge involves acting with extreme disregard for human life. Mosby said Goodson repeatedly failed to secure Gray with a seatbelt in the back of the van, and because Gray was unbelted, shackled and handcuffed he suffered a severe neck injury. The death has now been ruled a homicide. Bill Murphy, a lawyer for Gray’s family, said “his spine was 80 percent severed.” Other charges against the officers include involuntary manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment. The officers turned themselves in at the city jail Friday afternoon after charges were announced. All were later released on bonds of between $250,000 and $350,000. BALTIMORE (AP) — Martin O’Malley often casts Baltimore as the comeback city that overcame the ravages of drugs and violence when he was mayor. Now, weeks before the former Maryland governor expects to enter the 2016 presidential race and challenge Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Democratic primaries, Baltimore’s turnaround has been marred by the unrest after the police-custody death of Freddie Gray. The turmoil has placed new scrutiny on O’Malley’s “zero tolerance” law enforcement policies as mayor from 1999 to 2006. The record shows that murders and violent crime overall declined in O’Malley’s years as mayor. But in that time, a grand jury concluded that too many arrests were being made in black neighborhoods without merit. And the city settled a lawsuit from people who said they were wrongly arrested for minor offenses. Altogether, these are the sort of concerns driving some of the anger in Baltimore today. David Rocah, a staff attorney with the ACLU of Maryland, said the O’Malley administration left a legacy of “hyperaggressive and militarized policing” that, in his view, contributed to the outrage behind the riots. “I think the idea that you can arrest your way to public safety has always been deeply misguided and counterproductive,” Rocah said. But O’Malley says those judging him in hindsight should remember the crime and despair of the Baltimore he inherited as mayor. “I don’t think that any of us want to go back to the days of 1999,” O’Malley said. “Our city is undoubtedly a safer place, and our city is becoming a better place, but our city still has a lot of progress to make.” He spoke outside the Dawson Safe Haven Center, an afterschool refuge for children that was once a home for a family of seven killed in a 2002 firebombing by a drug dealer. O’Malley called that episode “our Alamo.” Even now, O’Malley clings to the story of Baltimore’s redemption, terming the unrest “a heartbreaking setback for an otherwise remarkable comeback.” He said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that when he makes an announcement about his presidential intentions, he wouldn’t think of making it anywhere other than Baltimore. O’Malley has tried to build a following in Iowa and New Hampshire as an alternative to Clinton, the dominant frontrunner. O’Malley has backed tougher regulations on Wall Street, opposed the TransPacific Partnership trade deal and addressed student debt — issues that resonate with liberals. Still relatively unknown, even among Democrats, O’Malley frequently points to his time as mayor as a key part of his biography. A 2013 video by his team, shown at a New Hampshire Democratic dinner where he appeared, described Baltimore in the late 1990s as a “cauldron of crime, drugs and profound despair” and credited O’Malley with “an assault on hopelessness. He didn’t make a campaign promise to make the city safer, he made a pledge. And he kept it.” In the 1990s, more than 300 people were murdered each year in Baltimore. O’Malley advocated “stop-and-frisk” practices, cracked down on lower-level crimes such as public drunkenness and disorderly conduct, and brought in two police commanders from New York steeped in such policing. The number of homicides fell to 253 in 2002 and stayed below 300 during his two terms, while never dropping to his goal of 175. But the approach did lead to many arrests. In 2005, a Baltimore grand jury found excessive arrests in black neighborhoods and recommended retraining officers. Judge Joseph McCurdy Jr. had tasked the panel with determining “what can be done to address the lack of confidence that exists between many members of the public and law enforcement.” The ACLU and the NAACP sued in 2006 on behalf of 14 plaintiffs who said they were wrongly arrested as part of a policy that emphasized arrests for minor offenses under O’Malley’s watch. The city agreed to the $870,000 settlement in 2010. O’Malley’s successors moved away from zero-tolerance policing. But he hasn’t shied away from his record. When the recent protests erupted, he cut short a trip in England and Ireland, returned to Baltimore and walked the streets to talk to former constituents and community leaders. Some stopped to shake hands or take pictures with him while others told him about their bad experiences with the police. A few heckled him. O’Malley told one person the police were also victims of violence. “I buried 10 police officers” as mayor, he said. “Half were black. Half were white.” Asked about the zero-tolerance policy, O’Malley said, “What we had zero tolerance for was police misconduct. We worked at it every day.” On Sunday, he said that “extreme poverty breeds conditions for extreme violence.” His advisers note he created a civilian review board for police conduct, expanded drug treatment and saw a decline in excessive force complaints and police-involved shootings. After two terms as mayor, he won two terms as governor with strong support in Baltimore. “The people of Baltimore were given ample opportunities to express at the ballot box their satisfaction or dissatisfaction with the direction that our city took to reduce violent crime, to reduce homicides, to make our city more livable,” O’Malley said. Still, some think the riots erupted, in part, from years of frustration among residents who felt unfairly targeted. “He had some responsibility,” said Marvin “Doc” Cheatham, a former president of the NAACP’s Baltimore city branch. “But you have to lay blame also with the majority of the City Council, because the majority of them were in office when he was in office.” To Mary, my lovely wife, I love you more today than ever before.

Ask for what you want, but don't promise something you cannot deliver. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will be honored for your help, donations and whatever contributions you make. Take any opportunity you get to discuss your plans for the future with someone influential, and you will get the goahead to follow through with your vision. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't let your emotions take over. Keep your thoughts to yourself and focus on your own business, plans and self-improvement. Formulate what you want to achieve, and do whatever it takes to reach your goal and reap the rewards you deserve. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don't waste time when you should be working diligently to position yourself for future success. A problem at home must not cloud your vision or lead to poor health. A short trip or physical change can help you avoid an unnecessary conflict. Birthday Baby: You are engaging, determined and willful. You are competitive and forceful. www.clevelandbanner.com Cleveland Daily Banner—Monday, May 4, 2015—9 MONDAYAFTERNOON/EVENING 4 PM WRCBNBC WELFTBN WTNB WFLICW WNGHPBS DAYSTAR WTVCABC WTCIPBS WDSIFOX WDEFCBS QVC CSPAN WGN-A HSN E!

Judges and mentors Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Pharrell Williams offer their assessments of the amateur singers’ efforts. Carson Daly is the host. 8 p.m. on (WDSI) Gotham The show ends its first season with the ironically titled “All Happy Families Are Alike,” as Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith, who has announced she’s leaving the show) has her ultimate showdown with Penguin and Maroni (Robin Lord Taylor, guest star David Zayas) for control of the city. Barbara and Leslie (Erin Richards, guest star Morena Baccarin) commune over their recent experiences. Bruce (David Mazouz) scours his home for desired clues. 9 p.m. on (WFLI) Jane the Virgin With a high-school reunion coming up, Jane (Gina Rodriguez) is concerned about attending — given what her aims were and how her life actually is going — in the new episode “Chapter Twenty One.” She also sets conditions for attending Michael’s (Brett Dier) event. Petra (Yael Grobglas) tries to turn what she learns from Rafael (Justin Baldoni) to her advantage. Xo (Andrea Navedo) has a tough time trying to guess Rogelio’s (Jaime Camil) thoughts. 9 p.m. on (A&E) Bates Motel In the new episode “Crazy,” this season’s penultimate hour, Norman (Freddie Highmore) spends the day with a surprising visitor, while Norma (Vera Farmiga) struggles desperately to keep Bates family secrets from being exposed. Elsewhere, Caleb (Kenny Johnson) pays a price for helping Dylan (Max Thieriot) follow through with a good deed at the farm. Nestor Carbonell also stars. 10 p.m. on (TRAV) Time Traveling With Brian Unger Marking the recent 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination, host Brian Unger traces the escape route of the president’s killer, John Wilkes Booth, through Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia in the new episode “Lincoln’s Killer on the Run.” Starting in an alley behind Ford’s Theater, Unger and some companions follow the arduous path taken by Booth and his co-conspirator David Herold as they evaded federal officers for 12 days.

It’s their life. Many of the Capitol’s food servers, who make the meals, bus the tables and run the cash registers in the restaurants and carryouts that serve lawmakers, earn less than $11 an hour. Some make nothing at all when Congress is in recess. Members of the House and Senate collect their $174,000 annual salaries whether Congress is making laws, taking a break or causing a partial government shutdown. “This is the most important building in the world,” said Sontia Bailey, who works the cash register and stocks the shelves at the “Refectory” takeout on the Capitol’s Senate side. “You’d think our wages would be better.” Bailey, 34, makes $10.33 an hour, a hair above the $10.10 hourly minimum for federal contractors. She had to move from her apartment to a rented room when the 2013 temporary government shutdown interrupted her income, she said. KFC pays her better. Bailey works weekends and two evenings a week there, making $12 an hour. In the Capitol food service world, she said, “everybody has second jobs.” Down an ornate hallway is 21year-old Abraham Tesfahun. He serves lunch in the Senate members’ dining room and handles the afternoon cash register in the busy Senate takeout, one floor below. Tesfahun said his hourly pay is $10.30. But he receives an additional $3 an hour in cash, which otherwise would go toward health insurance. He is covered by his mother’s insurance policy under President Barack Obama’s health care law. That doesn’t mean Tesfahun, who emigrated from Ethiopia as a teenager, is tight with his mom. “She kind of kicked me out of the house,” he said sheepishly, when he quit community college after one year to work seven days a week. Now, he said, he rents a basement room and works full time in the Capitol. On Saturdays and Sundays, he works at a Dunkin’ Donuts, for $8 an hour. That’s above the federal minimum wage of $7.25, although some states have higher minimums. “People are much nicer” in the Capitol, Tesfahun said. But he said he generally has no work or pay when Congress is out of session, and he sometimes collects unemployment benefits. The Senate is scheduled to be in recess 13 weeks this year. Both Bailey and Tesfahun said they once received a pay raise of 3 cents an hour. In Congress and the 2016 presidential race, candidates in both parties promise to help U.S. workers narrow the gap with high earners. The Capitol’s food workers — many of whom can’t afford cars, let alone vacations — are prime examples of people without college degrees who have fallen far behind in the high-tech global economy. Capitol food workers with at least seven years’ experience fare better than Bailey and Tesfahun, making about $16 or $17 an hour. But even one of those, cook Shawnee Ellis, said she does catering on the side because “I have to make extra money” to pay her bills. All work for Restaurant Associates, a major New Yorkbased contractor that handles food services for the House and Senate. In a statement, the contractor said it “takes pride in paying above-market competitive wages.” It would not comment on individual employees. The House privatized its food operations decades ago. The Senate ran its own operations, at heavy losses, until 2008. That’s when the then-Democratic majority said taxpayer subsidies were unsustainable, and Restaurant Associates won the contract to take over. “There are parts of government that can be run like a business and should be run like businesses,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., then the head of the Senate Rules Committee, which oversees such contracts. A few Democrats objected. “You cannot stand on the Senate floor and condemn the privatization of workers, and then turn around and privatize the workers here in the Senate and leave them out on their own,” Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey said at the time. Nonetheless, senators approved the 2008 switch in a voice vote, which any dissenter could have blocked. Through a spokesman, Feinstein declined to comment for this story. Capitol employees’ struggles are causing discomfort for lawmakers — including some running for president — as national debate churns over income inequality. In April, dozens of Capitol workers staged a oneday protest. Senate cook Bertrand Olotara wrote in The Guardian, “I serve food to some of the most powerful people on Earth.” They often talk of expanded opportunity for workers, he wrote, but “most don’t seem to notice or care that workers in their own building are struggling to survive.” The Washington region is among the nation’s most expensive. After The Washington Post, CNN and others profiled Charles Gladden, a Senate food worker who is homeless, several Democratic senators urged Republican leaders — now in the majority — to press Restaurant Associates to increase workers’ pay. GOP Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, who leads the Rules Committee, said “their concerns will be kept in mind as the contract comes up for renegotiation” later this year. The House contract with Restaurant Associates expires in August; requests for bids went out last fall.

The men drove up to the Curtis Culwell Center in the Dallas suburb of Garland as the event was scheduled to end and began shooting at the security officer, the City of Garland said in a statement. Garland police officers returned fire, killing the men. Garland police spokesman Joe Harn said it was not immediately clear whether the shooting was connected to the event inside, a contest hosted by the New York-based American Freedom Defense Initiative that would award $10,000 for the best cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad. But he said at a late Sunday news conference that authorities were searching the gunmen’s vehicle for explosives, saying, “Because of the situation of what was going on today and the history of what we’ve been told has happened at other events like this, we are considering their car (is) possibly containing a bomb.” Drawings such at the ones featured at the Texas event are deemed insulting to many followers of Islam and have sparked violence around the world. According to mainstream Islamic tradition, any physical depiction of the Prophet Muhammad — even a respectful one — is considered blasphemous. The Curtis Culwell Center, a school-district owned public events space where the Texas event was held, was evacuated after the shooting, as were some surrounding businesses. The evacuation was lifted several hours later and police were not aware of any ongoing threat, but a large area around the center remained blocked off late into the night. Police helicopters circled overhead as bomb squads worked on the car. Harn said the bodies of the gunmen, who had not yet been identified, were not immediately taken from the scene because they were too close to the car. He said they would be removed once the car was cleared. The wounded security officer, who was unarmed, worked for the Garland Independent School District, Harn said. He was treated and released from a local hospital. Harn said the district hires security for events at its facilities, but noted additional security also was in place for Sunday’s event. The sponsoring group has said it paid $10,000 for off-duty police officers and other private security. Harn said the city had not received any credible threats before the shooting. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said state officials are investigating, and Dallas FBI spokeswoman Katherine Chaumont said that agency is providing investigative and bomb technician assistance. The event featured speeches by American Freedom Defense Initiative president Pamela Geller and Geert Wilders, a Dutch lawmaker known for his outspoken criticism of Islam. Wilders received several standing ovations from the crowd and left immediately after his speech. Wilders, who has advocated closing Dutch doors to migrants from the Islamic world for a decade, has lived under roundthe-clock police protection since 2004. After the shooting, authorities escorted about 75 contest attendees to another room in the conference center, where a woman held up an American flag, and the crowd sang “God Bless America.” The group was then taken to a separate location, where they were held for about two hours until being briefly questioned by FBI agents before being released. Johnny Roby of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, who was attending the contest, told the Associated Press he was outside the building when he heard around about 20 shots that appeared to be coming from the direction of a passing car. Roby said he then heard two single shots. He said he heard officers yell that they had the car before he was sent inside the building. Geller told the AP before Sunday’s event that she planned the contest to make a stand for free speech in response to outcries and violence over drawings of Muhammad. She said in a statement issued Sunday night that the shooting showed how “needed our event really was.” In January, 12 people were killed by gunmen in an attack against the Paris office of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, which had lampooned Islam and other religions and used depictions of Muhammad. Another deadly shooting occurred the following month at a free speech event in Copenhagen featuring an artist who had caricatured the prophet. Tens of thousands of people rallied around the world to honor the victims and defend the freedom of expression following those shootings. Geller’s group is known for mounting a campaign against the building of an Islamic center blocks from the World Trade Center site and for buying advertising space in cities across the U.S. criticizing Islam. When a Chicago-based nonprofit held a January fundraiser in Garland designed to help Muslims combat negative depictions of their faith, Geller spearheaded about 1,000 picketers at the event. One chanted: “Go back to your own countries! We don’t want you here!” Others held signs with messages such as, “Insult those who behead others,” an apparent reference to recent beheadings by the militant group Islamic State. NYPD officer shot in head remains critical but stable NEW YORK (AP) — An NYPD police officer was in critical but stable condition early Monday, two days after being shot in the head while sitting in an unmarked car in Queens. Officer Brian Moore, 25, was in a coma and “fighting for his life,” District Attorney Richard Brown told The Associated Press on Sunday. Moore underwent surgery for what court papers described as “severe injuries to his skull and brain.” The suspect, Demetrius Blackwell, was ordered held without bail Sunday after appearing in Queens Criminal Court. He did not enter a plea to charges of attempted murder. Prosecutors planned to present the case to a grand jury before Blackwell’s next court appearance on Friday. Blackwell’s court-appointed lawyer, David Bart, said his client denied the charges, which also include assault and weapons offenses. Police on Monday continued to search for the weapon. “This was nothing more and nothing less than a cold-blooded attempt at an assassination of New York’s finest,” Assistant District Attorney Peter McCormack said. McCormack said Moore and patrol partner Erik Jansen both in plainclothes in an unmarked police car approached Blackwell on a Queens street after seeing him tugging at his waistband around 6:15 p.m. Saturday and asked him “What are you carrying?” The officers ordered Blackwell to stop and exchanged words with him. That’s when Blackwell turned, the prosecutor said, and “in a vicious manner started to fire” — at least two shots. Jansen was not hit and radioed for help.

Instead, Vest, who shot even par Saturday and a 3-under 68 Sunday, got word after he had finished up to hang around and stay loose, the leaders might be faltering. The word was true. Taylor Davis ended his round with a 2-over par 74, Scott Stevens came in with a round of 75 and Vest found himself in a three-way tie for first, setting up a playoff for the win. Two holes later, Vest was on his way back to the clubhouse once again, this time as club champion after the suden death win over Davis and Stevens. Neil Spitalny was the Senior Division championm finishing with an even-par 144, six strokes better than second-place finisher Mike Davis. Bob Rice took the Championship B win with a 144, just one-stroke better than 2014 champion Cody Godrey. First Flight honors went to Danny Gleeson who ended the two-day tournament with a 153. Jay Potter was second with a 156 total. “When I started the day the number I had in mind was 69. I felt like like I might could get up to third place. I didn't think the guys in front of me were really catchable. I felt like they were playing solid, as always,” said Vest. Success for Vest started at the first tee. A string of pars with a birdie tossed in for good measure had the former Walker Valley Mustang and Lee Flame on his way to at least a solid round. “I started the day with seven pars and made a good birdie putt on eight then parred No. 9 and made the turn at 1-under. I got it to 2-under on No. 10 and parred my way to 14,” Vest recalled. The hot round continued with See VEST, Page 13 AP photo DAle eARnhARDt JR. celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the Sprint Cup Series GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway Sunday, in Talladega, Ala.

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — There’s something about Talladega Superspeedway — its ardent Earnhardt fans, the success his family has had at the track — that makes Dale Earnhardt Jr. feel a responsibility to put on a show. He failed to deliver last year, using a strategy that took him out of contention for the win, admitting he was “just really, really ashamed of that” decision. Earnhardt vowed to never again be cautious at the Alabama track, to always race aggressively for the win. It paid off Sunday with an emotional first win of the season. “Even if I wreck ... we’re going to be racing for the lead or trying to anyways,” Earnhardt said. “That’s my mentality till I don’t race anymore.” NASCAR’s most popular driver received a thunderous ovation as he pumped his fist outside the car window during a slow victory lap. He stopped at the flag stand to grab the checkered flag and flew it out his car window as he savored his trip around the track and into victory lane. It was Earnhardt’s sixth victory at Talladega — but first since 2004 — and he choked back tears after he climbed from his No. 88 Chevrolet. “It’s just real emotional. I haven’t won here in a long time. It was my daddy’s birthday a couple of days ago, and I’m just real emotional, man,” he said. The late Dale Earnhardt, a first ballot Hall of Fame inductee, won 10 times at the Alabama track. He would have celebrated his 64th birthday Wednesday. “I think about all the races he won here and at Daytona, I love when we go to victory lane because I feel like I add to his legacy there,” he said. “All I ever want to do is make him proud. I feel like when we win at those tracks where he was successful, that’s exactly what we’re doing. See TALLADEGA, Page 13 From LEE SPORTS INFORMATION ROME, Ga. — The Flames finished eighth and the Lady Flames were 12th as the Lee University Track & Field teams competed in the 2015 National Christian College Athletic Association National Championships over the weekend. Lee followed two national championships on Friday with 14 athletes placing in scoring position (top eight) of their events, including five NCCAA AllAmerican (top three) performances. Fellow Gulf South Conference members Shorter University and Mississippi College also participated in the two-day event at Historic Barron Stadium and Maddox Track. Shorter won both team championships, while the Choctaws and the Lady Choctaws were 13th. The Flames had most of their success in the 800-meter run with three runners placing in the event’s top eight. Harold Smith was second (1:53.15) to earn his second NCCAA All-American honor of the weekend. Emmanuel Kipchumba placed fifth (1:54.47) and Terris Elliott crossed the finish line in eighth (1:55.70). Adam Gullette was 36th in the race with a time of 2:00.48. "Harold ran a great race. That was by far the most competitive NCCAA 800m ever. Finishing second in a race of that caliber as a freshman is a great feat," said coach Caleb Morgan. Kipchumba, Elliott and Gullette joined Smith as NCCAA AllAmericans as part of the national champion 4x800-meter relay team. Seth Eagleson also claimed All-American status in connection to his national championship in the 10,000m. Elliott joined Camden Perez in the 3,000m steeplechase. Perez placed eighth with a time of 9:28.94 and Elliott was 13th (9:46.76). Smith just missed his second top-eight performance of the day with a ninth-place finish in the 5,000m run with a mark of 15:51.04. Eagleson was sixth in the event at 15:24.34. Alex Carter, Nick Eckert and Joseph Crook took on the 1,500m with Carter crossing the finish line at 4:06.66 (12th). Eckert was See FLAMES, Page 13 Teheran sharp for 6 innings as Braves beat Cueto, Reds ATLANTA (AP) — A memorable afternoon for Kelly Johnson almost didn’t happen. Johnson was a last-minute addition to the lineup, and he hit a two-run homer as the Atlanta Braves shut out the Cincinnati Reds 5-0 on Sunday. Johnson also got to greet his son at third base as part of a Little League pregame ceremony where local youngsters get to meet a Braves player at each position before the first inning. His son was waiting for Johnson when he took the field. “It was special for me, for sure,” Johnson said. “His team had a blast.” As for his home run on this day, “you are kind of left shaking your head. Sometimes you’re speechless,” Johnson said. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Saturday he was planning on resting Johnson after seven straight starts. Gonzalez changed his mind when he arrived at the ballpark Sunday. “Sooner or later, we’re going to give him one because he’s not a young kid anymore, but it was one of those gametime decisions,” Gonzalez said. “I had the mindset of giving him a day off and I started messing around a little bit and we decided to give (Alberto) Callaspo a day off and it paid. It made me look good.” Julio Teheran gave up just three singles in six sharp innings as Braves got a split of the fourgame series. Teheran (3-1), an NL All-Star last year, came into the game with a winning record despite three straight sub-par starts. He struck out five in a row during one point and fanned a season-high six overall. Teheran was never threatened after the Braves built an early 4-0 lead. He walked two. “He pitched a nice ballgame and never gave us anything,” said See BRAVES, Page 13 AP photo AtlAntA’s Kelly Johnson celebrates a two-run home run with teammate Freddie Freeman, right, in the first inning against the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, in Atlanta. Beal leads well-rested Washington Wizards past Hawks in Game 1 AP photo AtlAntA hAwKs center Al Horford shoots as Washington Wizards center Marcin Gortat defends in the second half Sunday, in Atlanta. ATLANTA (AP) — After resting up for the past week, the Washington Wizards merely had to withstand Atlanta’s early pace. Once the Hawks ran out of gas, Bradley Beal and the Wizards took control. Just call them the road warriors. Beal shook off a sprained ankle to score 28 points and streaking Washington remained unbeaten in the postseason, knocking off top-seeded Atlanta 104-98 Sunday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. It was another gritty performance by the Wizards, who improved to 8-1 on the road in the playoffs over the past two postseasons, including 3-0 this year. They became the first team in NBA history to win four straight Game 1s on the road. “Just withstanding adversity,” said John Wall, who had 18 points and 13 assists. “We know they’re going to come out and give us a punch right away.” Taking advantage of a week off since their sweep of Toronto, the Wizards wore down the Hawks in the fourth quarter. Otto Porter scored a couple of big baskets coming down the stretch, including a 3pointer, and Marcin Gortat sealed it with a lay-in off a pass from Wall with 14.6 seconds remaining. “We kept talking about it’s a long game,” Washington coach Randy Wittman said. “We got better and better and better.” The Hawks needed six games to beat eight-seeded Brooklyn and had to open this best-of-seven series with about a 36hour turnaround. After racing to a 37-26 lead after the first quarter, Atlanta couldn’t make anything in the fourth. Even with plenty of good looks, the Hawks hit only 5 of 28 (17.9 percent) in the final period, including 1 of 10 from beyond the 3-point arc. Game 2 is Tuesday night in Atlanta. “Our pace was better in the first half,” Al Horford said. “Maybe in the second half, we were just tired or whatever.” The frustration for the home team was epitomized by one crucial possession with just over 2 minutes to go. The Hawks kept giving themselves extra chances, hustling for five offensive rebounds. But they missed six straight shots before the Wizards finally grabbed possession, the crowd groaning louder and louder with each ball that clanked off the rim. “I had a couple of tips that just came out. I couldn’t believe it,” Horford said. “I think that was the key point of the game.” DeMarre Carroll had another big game for Atlanta with 24 points, but 21 came in the opening half and he went scoreless over the final quarter. He had plenty of company. Horford made only 7 of 19 shots, Kyle Korver was 5 of 15, and Jeff Teague went 4 of 14. The Hawks picked right up where they left off in their best performance of the postseason, a 111-87 victory Friday night at Brooklyn. Atlanta ran the Wizards ragged, hit 64 percent from the field, and led by 11 at the end of their highest-scoring first quarter of the postseason. But the Wizards were clearly the fresher team in the second half. The Hawks finished just 38 percent (37 of 98) from the field, including 25 percent over the final two quarters. Beal hobbled off the court with a sprained right ankle after landing on Horford’s foot with 8:08 remaining. He went to the locker room to get it taped and returned to finish out a superb performance at both ends. In addition to tying his career scoring high in the playoffs, Beal grabbed seven rebounds and did a good job shadowing Korver at the 3-point stripe. Atlanta’s long-range specialist made only 3 of 11 from beyond the arc. Paul Pierce had 19 points for the Wizards, and Drew Gooden provided some key minutes off the bench, finishing with 12. 12—Cleveland Daily Banner—Monday, May 4, 2015 www.clevelandbanner.com SCOREBOARD Cougars see season close From CSCC Sports Information CHATTANOOGA — Cleveland State's late inning rally fell short in a TCCAA elimination game against Volunteer State. The Cougars scored eight runs the final three innings, but couldn't complete the comeback losing 11-10.

In the District 5-AAA Baseball Tournament in Athens last week, the last-place McMinn County squad stunned sixth-seeded Cleveland High in the play-in game, then turned around and did the same to No. 3 Bradley Central. The host Cherokees had their run stalled Sunday with a 5-2 loss to Ooltewah. Likewise in the 5-AAA soccer tournament, No. 7 seed Walker Valley, which didn’t win a district game during the regular season, stunned second-seeded Ooltewah Saturday on the Owls’ home pitch with a 1-0 shutout. Coach Tom Bayliss’ Mustangs now advance to the district semifinals Tuesday evening at No. 3 East Hamilton. Match time is set for 5:30 p.m. In the other opening round match Saturday, fourth-seeded McMinn County was able to get past No. 5 Bradley Central, while East Hamilton did away with sixth-seeded Soddy-Daisy. The Cherokees will be in town Tuesday to face top-seeded Cleveland High, which is perfect in district play so far this season. The Blue Raiders will welcome the boys from Athens to the Greater Cleveland Soccer Complex for a 7 p.m. kickoff. After a scoreless opening half Saturday, Walker Valley freshman Samuel McDonald scored the game’s lone goal, in the game's 55th minute. Mustang sophomore goalkeeper Skyler Swafford and Walker Valley’s tenacious defense were able to shut out the Owls. on AIr Saturday, May 2 L.A. Clippers 111, San Antonio 109, L.A.

AP photo rory McIlroy hits out of the rough on the fourth fairway during the Match Play Championship at TCP Harding Park Sunday, in San Francisco. McIlroy a winner with great play and luck SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Rory McIlroy won a tournament as the No. 1 player in the world. Only at the Match Play Championship does this pass as newsworthy. In the 17-year history of golf’s most unpredictable tournament, only one other player has gone undefeated over five days as the No. 1 seed. That was Tiger Woods, who did it three times, the last occasion seven years ago in the Arizona desert. Woods needed as much good fortune as McIlroy, who somehow outlasted seven opponents — including three in one day — to capture his second World Golf Championship title on Sunday at TPC Harding Park. “Physically, I feel fine,” McIlroy said after his 4-and-2 win over Gary Woodland in the championship match. “But mentally, it was a grind.” He played 121 holes in five days, including 35 holes on Sunday after getting six hours of sleep. Three times, he was trailing in his match when he stood on the 17th tee. Four times, he watched his opponent stand over a putt that would have knocked him out. Asked to name his most significant shot of the week — and there were plenty of good ones — McIlroy didn’t hesitate. He went straight to the Friday match with Billy Horschel, who was 2 up with two to play. McIlroy faced a 30-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole that simply had to go in. “Basically, I don’t hole that and I’m going home,” he said as he signed tournament flags after his win. “I don’t even get through to the (final) 16.” This was a week when just about everything went right for McIlroy, except for his plans to watch the Manny PacquiaoFloyd Mayweather Jr. fight in Las Vegas. He wound up giving his floor seat to a friend who had been in the upper level of the MGM Grand. McIlroy watched the fight in a corner of the interview room. There was pizza and beer. The next evening, there was a trophy. He wound up taking Horschel to overtime and beating on the 20th hole. He was on the verge of another loss in the quarterfinals until Paul Casey hit a bad chip and a bad putt to make bogey and later missed an 18foot birdie putt on the 20th hole. They had to return Sunday morning to finish the match on the par-5 opening hole. McIlroy had 60 feet from the fringe, mud on his ball. Making it worse, he had not practiced on the putting green, only on the chipping green, which was not the same speed. He managed to lag it with perfect pace, and the two-putt birdie won the match. “It was down to preparation,” McIlroy said with a grin. In the semifinal against Jim Furyk, he had to make a 7-foot birdie putt to avoid going 2 down with two to play. Then, he hit 7iron to 4 feet for birdie, and he finished the match with a 45foot eagle putt across the green. The last match lacked energy, and except for a brief moment on the back nine, the outcome was inevitable. McIlroy won four straight holes when Woodland lost his way off the tee. Woodland rallied behind a few mistakes by McIlroy, and he had a 4-foot par putt on the 13th hole to get the deficit to 1 down. He missed, and that was that. “My putt drops on 13 and it’s a different ball game,” Woodland said. “But I missed that one. And he was like a shark. Smelled blood, and it was gave over quickly.” Woodland lost the next hole with a bogey, and he conceded the match on the 16th hole. McIlroy has led seven of the last eight rounds in the majors, winning the British Open and the PGA Championship. He already has won twice this year. There’s a reason he is No. 1 in the world. And yet it was the format that required so much luck, and so much timing, as is the case just about every year. Woods won at Dove Mountain as the No. 1 player in 2008. In the opening round, he was 3 down with five holes to play against J.B. Holmes when he made three birdies and a bending 35-foot eagle to rally. In the third round that year, he could only watch as Aaron Baddeley had a 10-foot putt for the win, and missed. When he won at La Costa in 2004, Woods again was on the ropes to John Rollins when he won the last two holes for a 1-up victory, helped by Rollins missing the green with a wedge in his hand on the final hole. It’s not easy for any of the 64 players to win this, let alone the best. This was only the sixth time in 17 years that the No. 1 seed even reached the semifinals. Woods lost in the championship match in 2000 at La Costa, and Ernie Els was the No. 1 seed when he lost in the semifinals to Pierre Fulke in Australia a year later. So as McIlroy headed to Florida to celebrate his 26th birthday, it was hard to measure his form. He really didn’t play much differently than he did at the Masters, when he was fourth without a chance of winning, or at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he tied for 11th. Had this been stroke play, there’s no telling where he would have finished. What mattered was winning — his 16th worldwide and 10th on the PGA Tour. “No matter what format it is,” McIlroy said, “it’s always nice to get a trophy.” Gordon’s costly mistake helps ruin his weekend at Talladega TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — Jeff Gordon’s mistake on pit road helped sour a promising weekend at Talladega Superspeedway. Penalized for speeding on pit road, Gordon was dropped back to 30th for the final restart Sunday after spending much of the race up front. “I’m not happy with myself, really,” Gordon said. “I made that mistake coming to pit road. That was a make-or-break moment in the race. It could have put us in the lead. Instead we were the tail end of the longest line.” Gordon had every reason to expect a happier ending. He started from the pole for the 80th time at a track where he’s won six times and led 47 laps. Hendrick Motorsports had the strongest cars in the field, and it was clear Gordon was a contender for the win. Because this is his retirement tour, Gordon had even hung out with friends on Talladega’s boulevard, a party spot he’d avoided for at least a decade. Instead, Hendrick teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. wound up winning and Gordon was saddled with a 31st-place finish. The four-time NASCAR champion as if he had the ride to be celebrating on Victory Lane. “You want to seize those opportunities,” Gordon said. “This was an opportunity for us. We had an awesome race car. I definitely feel like we had the best race car. AP photo Jeff Gordon makes a pit stop during the GEICO 500 Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway Sunday, in Talladega, Ala. Junior was good, Jimmie (Johnson) was good, but I felt like we were amazing. That’s frustrating. I think the most frustrating thing is making a mistake. “At Martinsville, I made a mistake. Here I made a mistake. We’ve got to eliminate those mistakes when we have race cars like this, because we have an awesome race team.” It has just been that kind of year for one of NASCAR’s most successful drivers. He said he knew he was going too fast but couldn’t get the car slowed down in time. At Martinsville, he had a similar blunder. Gordon took the lead with 58 laps to go but got penalized for speeding entering pit road and only managed to squeeze back into the Top 10. He wrecked on the last lap of his final Daytona 500, where he also started on the pole and led 77 of the first 100 laps. He limped across the finish line in 33rd. Gordon’s race at Talladega ended similarly since he couldn’t make up much ground after restarting. “If those guys decide to go single file like that, you’re not going anywhere,” he said. “I was in the middle on that final restart, making some ground up, and all of a sudden they all went outside. “And at that point, it was over. You’re just sitting there waiting for the white flag to come up.” www.clevelandbanner.com Cleveland Daily Banner—Monday, May 4, 2015—13 Mayweather wins decision in richest fight ever LAS VEGAS (AP) — The pressure of a $180 million payday never got to Floyd Mayweather Jr., even if the richest fight ever wasn’t the best. Using his reach and his jab Saturday night, Mayweather frustrated Manny Pacquiao, piling up enough points to win a unanimous decision in their welterweight title bout. Mayweather remained unbeaten in 48 fights, cementing his legacy as the best of his generation. After the fight, it was disclosed that Pacquiao injured his right shoulder in training and that Nevada boxing commissioners denied his request to take an antiinflammatory shot in his dressing room before the fight. Pacquiao chased Mayweather around the ring most of the fight. But he was never able to land a sustained volume of punches, as Mayweather worked his defensive wizardry again. Two ringside judges scored the fight 116-112, while the third had it 118-110. The Associated Press had Mayweather ahead 115-113. “I take my hat off to Manny Pacquiao. I see now why he is at the pinnacle of boxing,” Mayweather said. “I knew he was going to push me, win some rounds. I wasn’t being hit with a lot of shots until I sit in a pocket and he landed a lot of shots.” The bout wasn’t an artistic triumph for either fighter, with long periods where both men fought cautiously. Pacquiao threw far fewer punches than he normally does in a fight, with Mayweather actually throwing more. That was largely because Pacquiao didn’t throw his right hand often. Promoter Bob Arum said Pacquiao injured his shoul- der sometime after March 11. Arum said Pacquiao’s camp thought he would be allowed the anti-inflammatory shot because he had gotten them during training and they had been approved by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. But he said paperwork filed with the commission didn’t check the injury box, and the Nevada commission ruled against the request for a shot. “The ruling made tonight affected the outcome of the fight,” Arum said. Nevada Athletic Commission chairman Francisco Aguilar said Pacquiao’s camp wanted shots that included lidocaine, a drug that numbs the affected area. But he said Pacquiao’s representatives didn’t check the injury box after the weigh-in Friday, and the commission had no way of knowing how serious the injury was or what it could be treated with. “I have no proof an injury actually exists and I can’t make a ruling based on what they’re telling me,” Aguilar said. Still, Pacquiao thought he had won the bout, largely on the basis of a few left hands that seemed to shake Mayweather. “I thought I won the fight. He didn’t do nothing except move outside,” Pacquiao said. “I got him many times.” There were no knockdowns, and neither fighter seemed terribly hurt at any time. Pacquiao landed probably the biggest punch in the fight in the fourth round — a left hand that sent Mayweather into the ropes — but he wasn’t able to consistently land against the elusive champion. The fight was a chess match, with Mayweather using his jab to keep Pacquiao away most of the fight. Pacquiao tried to force the Talladega From Page 11 “I don’t really get to think about him that much. His birthday came and went. Today, it made me think about his birthday, how much I miss him, how much he meant to me and so many more people.” Earnhardt Jr. won four consecutive races at Talladega from 2001, after his father’s death in the season-opening Daytona 500, through 2003. He then finished second in back-to-back Talladega races before grabbing his fifth victory in 2004. But his dominance ended that season, then came several years of slumping results on the track. He finally turned it around last year with a victory in the season-opening Daytona 500, but poor strategy in this race last year cost him any shot at the victory. So he was aggressive Sunday, leading a race-high 67 laps and easily winning when no one from a single-file line of cars behind him could challenge him. The win almost certainly put him in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, and was Earnhardt’s first with Greg Ives, the new crew chief who stayed for the race at 8-year-old daughter Payton’s insistence after she broke her arm. “The emotion of making the Chase — I don’t think that people really appreciate the pressure that’s on these teams to get into the Chase and get these wins,” Earnhardt said. Jimmie Johnson finished second as Hendrick Motorsports dominated the race. But Johnson couldn’t pull out of line to attempt a pass on Earnhardt, who was watching his mirror carefully to see who from the line would make a move. Paul Menard was third and Ryan Blaney was a surprising fourth in the only Ford that could challenge the horsepower from the Hendrick Chevrolets. Martin Truex Jr. was fifth and followed by Sam Hornish Jr. in another Ford, then Ryan Newman and Kevin Harvick as Chevy drivers took six of the first eight spots. Denny Hamlin was ninth in the highest-finishing Toyota and Josh Wise rounded out the top 10. Pole-sitter Jeff Gordon was a disappointing 31st despite a strong race car. He was penalized for speeding on pit road during the final pit stops, and the infraction dropped him to 30th on the restart with 26 laps remaining. He was unable to work his way through the field as Earnhardt led a 10-car breakaway, and the second line of traffic struggled to catch the leaders. He was collected in a last-lap crash that began when Carl Edwards spun. As the laps wound down, nobody seemed to want to make a move to challenge Earnhardt until finally Tony Stewart, the leader of the second line of cars, dropped to the bottom of the track in an effort to make something happen. Only no one would work with Stewart, and he was shuffled back to a 19th-place finish after leading laps and challenging for the win.

Mayweather fought confidently in the late rounds, winning the last two rounds on all three scorecards. In the final seconds of the fight he raised his right hand in victory and after the bell rang stood on the ropes, pounding his heart with his gloves. “You’re tough,” he said to Pacquiao, hugging him in the ring. It was vintage Mayweather, even if it didn’t please the crowd of 16,507. They cheered every time Pacquiao threw a punch, hoping that he would land a big shot and become the first fighter to beat Mayweather. But a good percentage of what he threw never landed. Mayweather often came back with straight right hands, then moved away before Pacquiao could respond. “I thought we pulled it out,” Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach said. “I asked my man to throw more combinations between rounds. I thought he fought flatfooted too many times.” Ringside punch stats showed Mayweather landing 148 punches of 435, while Pacquiao landed 81 of 429. The volume for Pacquiao was a lot lower than the 700 or more he usually throws. Five years in the making, the fight unfolded before a glittering crowd of celebrities, high rollers and people who had enough money to pay for ringside seats going for $40,000 and up. Before it did, though, it was delayed about a half hour because cable and satellite systems were having trouble keeping up with the payper-view demand. They paid big money to watch two superstars fight for their legacies — and in Pacquiao’s case his country — in addition to the staggering paydays for both. Pacquiao had vowed to take the fight to Mayweather and force him into a war. His camp thought Mayweather’s 38-year-old legs weren’t what they once were. “He is moving around, not easy to throw punches when people moving around,” Pacquiao said. “When he stayed, I threw a lot of punches. That’s a fight.” But Mayweather moved well. His only real moment of trouble came in the fourth round when Pacquiao landed his left hand and then flurried to Mayweather’s head on the ropes, but he escaped and shook his head at Pacquiao as if to say he wasn’t hurt. In the corner, Mayweather’s Vest Braves From Page 11 From Page 11 back-to-back birdies and a momentum-holding save on his way to a round with nothing above par. “I birdied 14 and 15 and had a really good up and down on 16 that kind of kept my momentum together. I finished up with two pars to finish bogey free,” he said. “If you don't give shots away out there, it helps a lot.” Vest played his round with no knowledge of how good or bad the final foursome was playing, other than they may not be having their best round. “When we were on the 15th tee I heard the last two groups weren't playing well, but I had no clue how they were doing. I thought there was no chance I could win. I didn't plan on being in a playoff, for sure,” he said. With his 4-under in the books, Vest got word to hang around to see how things would turn out. As it did turn out, the advice from Lee golf coach John Maupin was good counsel. “Coach Maupin sent me a text and told me to stay loose. I went and talked to my buddies on the range and hit a couple of wedges, just kind of wasting time. When they were coming up to 18, I hit a couple of 7-irons and found out where everybody was. Then they told us we had five minutes and I hit a driver and went to the first tee,” said Vest. The trio teed off on No. 1 to determine a winner and all three were still deadlocked after the final putt dropped. As the group headed for No. 2 tee, Vest continued to call on his experience at CCC and used his 2014 round as motivation to help pull off the win he has been searching for. “It helped a lot that I was in the final pairing last year. I have played out here so much I really wanted to win this one at some point. I felt like I have been so close a couple of times,” he said. “I was just going to commit to every shot, accept the result, go find it and do the same on the next one. Was he relieved when the winning putt dropped to the bottom of the cup? “For sure. Absolutely, yes,” Vest said without hesitation. Vest said it won't take much time for the magnitude of what he accomplished to set in. “I think it has pretty much sunk in. I've been close and been on the wrong end of this before. It feels pretty good,” he said through a winning smile. Reds manager Bryan Price. “He just really shut us down.” Cody Martin, Michael Kohn and Luis Avilan combined for three innings of one-hit relief as the Braves recorded their second shutout of the season. Reds shortstop Zack Cozart left the game in the fourth when he bruised his right index finger fielding a grounder by Teheran. He was charged with an error. X-rays were negative. Johnny Cueto (2-3) was roughed up from the start, allowing five runs and nine hits in six innings. “If you would have told me we’d score five runs against Johnny Cueto, and he would only go six innings, I’m may have stopped and got some Lotto tickets,” Gonzalez said. “He’s tough.” Andrelton Simmons and Freddie Freeman hit back-to-back doubles in the first inning and Johnson followed that with a tworun drive. Johnson leads the Braves with five home runs. Cueto escaped a bases-loaded jam in the second, but surren- father, Floyd Sr. kept yelling at his son to do more. But Mayweather was content to stick with what was working and not take a risk that could cost him the fight. “I’m a calculated fighter, he is a tough competitor,” Mayweather said. “My dad wanted me to do more but Pacquiao is an awkward fighter.” Mayweather said that his fight in September against a yet-to-bedetermined opponent would be his last. “I’m almost 40 years old now. I’ve been in the sport 19 years and have been a champion for 18 years. I’m truly blessed.” Mayweather is also very rich, getting 60 percent of the approximately $300 million purse, depending on pay-per-view sales. The live gate alone was more than $70 million, and the bout was expected to easily smash the payper-view record of 2.48 million buys set in 2007 when Mayweather fought Oscar De La Hoya. But while the frenzy over the fight pushed up tickets to 3-4 times their retail price the week of the fight, prices dropped dramatically as the fight neared and some tickets were being resold for less than face value. Boxing fans called for the fight to be made five years ago, when both men were in their undisputed prime. But squabbles over promoters, drug testing and a variety of other issues sidelined it until Pacquiao beat Chris Algieri in November and immediately launched a campaign to get the fight made. When they finally got it, it wasn’t the fight it might have been five years ago. But it was enough to settle the question that boxing fans had asked for years — who would win the big welterweight matchup of the best fighters of their time. dered a solo home run to Jonny Gomes in the third. Freeman, Jace Peterson and Johnson also hit flyballs to the center field warning track in the first three innings. Cameron Maybin added an RBI single in the sixth inning after Cueto balked Peterson to second base. The Reds have an off-day today and will open a three-game series at Pittsburgh on Tuesday. It will be the fifth game of a 10-day road trip. Rookie Michael Lorenzen (01) will make his second career start after going five innings in his major league debut an 8-3 loss to the Brewers in which he allowed three runs. Atlanta will try to win back-toback games for the first time since the opening week of the season when it hosts the last-place Phillies in the opener of a threegame set today. Alex Wood (1-1) will start for the second time this season against the Phillies. He pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings in a 1-0 Braves loss. The Phillies will start Aaron Harang (2-2). Flames From Page 11 15th (4:10.16) and Crook finished 19th (4:28.95). Rick Barry and Hunter Goforth took to the pit for the long jump. Barry recorded a distance of 6.57 meters for eighth and Goforth was right behind in ninth place (6.49 meters). Adrian Martin was the top performer for the Lady Flames with two second-place finishes and two NCCAA All-American honors. Martin finished the 100-meter dash in 12.20, just 0.06 seconds behind Shorter’s Kemor Anderson. In the 200m dash, Ayana Walker (Shorter) set the meet record at 23.53, while Martin (24.12) was 0.6 seconds faster than Anderson. "Adrian ran two great races,” said Morgan. She recorded a personal record in the 200-meter, but it wasn't quite enough. The athlete Adrian finished just off of in the 200-meter is an NCAA Division II champion. That gives us a really good idea of where Adrian will stack up next year when we can compete in the postseason." Audrey Smith finished just outside of All-American status with a fourth-place finish in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. She recorded a time of 11:41.13. Smith joined Jessica Childers in the 1,500m run. Childers placed seventh (4:41.35) and Smith was 23rd (4:59.88). "You can tell a lot about an athlete’s mental drive when doubling back in an event at a championship,” added Morgan. “I am very proud of Jessica and Elizabeth (Sillcocks). They wanted to pick up All-American honors in the 10,000-meter and 1,500-meter. Neither athlete was quite good enough to do so, but hey, both came back highly motivated and determined in their secondary events and ran with a focus and determination to pick up All-American honors in the 800-meter and 5,000-meter.” Childers followed her seventhplace finish in the 1,500m run with third place in the 800-meter run (2:14.96). Brianna Prugh was 25th in the event with a mark of 2:27.76. Less than 24 hours after not finishing the 10,000m, Sillcocks earned a spot on the 5,000 podium with a third-placed finish (18:19.20). Emily Bryan earned a point for the team with an eighth-place finish in the 400-meter hurdles. She recorded a time of 1:09.63.

We have one of the premier trout fishing streams in the country right here in North Arkansas, the White River. My friends who read my column in the Baxter Bulletin in Mountain Home will certainly attest to this. The White River runs across the northern part of our state and a large dam was built at Bull Shoals creating Bull Shoals Lake, a great fishing place in its own right, with anglers coming from all over the nation to fish there. I don’t know how many feet, but this dam is high, really high, and when water is released at the bottom it is cold and swift as the river snakes its way through the mountains. This is prime habitat for trout that must have cold water to survive. The swift water flowing through this dam is also used to generate electricity. Trout fishermen primarily fish below the dam in the White River and there are several boat docks and rental places along the way where you can rent a GUEST ColUmniST Jim Davidson boat, motor and everything you need to "wet a hook," as they say. Because the water is so swift, especially when they are generating, you need an anchor to throw out, if you do not want to be swept along with the current. Most boats are equipped with a piece of railroad iron for this purpose. If you have ever seen a railroad track and can visualize about a foot of this, then you know what I am talking about. When you throw the anchor out, if the water is really swift, it may take a little while before it hangs up on a rock and your boat is brought to a secure position. When I thought about what I wanted to share with you today, this is the analogy that came to mind. In reality, a fast-moving river is, in one sense, a picture of life as we move along at a fast pace and face the trials and tribulations that come along each day. Sometimes these trials and tribulations become so overwhelming that we often seem to be losing ground as we attempt to succeed and reach the goals we have set for ourselves. At this point, let me pause and ask you this question. Are you facing some things in your life that you just can’t seem to overcome? It could be health problems, financial distress, a failed marriage, problems with children or grandchildren, a conflict with your employer or with an employee, a battle with drugs or alcohol. Of course there are myriads of other problems that many people experience from time to time. As I look back over the past several years of my life, I have come to the realization that I now have skills and knowledge that I did not have 10 or 20 years ago. I hope the same is true for you as well. It’s been said that people are like plants. When we quit growing, we start dying. The past few months have been so rewarding as I have read a number of good books that have been very enlightening. You know, we should read for profit but we should also read for pleasure. I have a couple of good friends who share books with me and in turn I share some of mine with them. If you are not already doing this, this is an idea you might want to try. Recently, I have made a discovery in the spiritual area of my life that has helped me face the storms that come along and I want to share it with you, for what it’s worth. Several years ago I heard a fantastic song titled, “The Anchor Holds” that was written by Lawrence Chewning and sung by Ray Boltz, copyright 1994, Word Music Company. Back then I heard the song several times, but lost the tape or CD and had not thought about it for the past several months. Then to my surprise, a few weeks ago a lady in my Sunday school class gave Viola and me a CD that contained this song, along with a number of others. However, the orchestra and choir of Emmanuel Faith Community Church in Escondido, Calif., recorded this rendition. This song is just beautiful and the lyrics are fantastic. Let me share the chorus and you will see what I mean: "The Anchor holds, though the ship is battered. The Anchor holds, though the sails are torn. Well I have fallen on my knees, as I faced the raging sea, but the Anchor holds in spite of the storm." Almost from the time we received the tape, I have listened to this song at least once or twice each morning as I am getting dressed. The words to this song serve to remind me of WHO my Anchor is, and that I am secure in His love. There is no doubt about it, when I come to the office I am better prepared to face the opportunities and the challenges that await me. Please understand that I have no financial interest here, and just wanted to share a resource that has been a blessing to me. The CDs are only $10 and can be ordered by calling the church at 1-760-745-2541 or from their website at www.efcc.org. ——— (About the writer: Jim Davidson is a motivational speaker and syndicated columnist.

Box 3600 Cleveland, TN 37320 Chinese construction company puts up 57-story skyscraper in 19 days CHANGSHA, China (AP) — A Chinese construction company is claiming to be the world’s fastest builder after erecting a 57-story skyscraper in 19 working days in central China. The Broad Sustainable Building Co. put up the rectangular, glass-and-steel Mini Sky City in the Hunan provincial capital of Changsha using a modular method, assembling three floors per day, company vice president Xiao Changgeng said. The company, which has ambitions to assemble the world’s tallest skyscraper at 220 floors in only three months, worked on Mini Sky City in two spurts separated by winter weather. Its time-lapse video of the rapid assembly has become popular on Chinese video-sharing sites since it was first uploaded on YouTube. “With the traditional method, they have to build a skyscraper brick by brick, but with our “With the traditional method, they have to build a skyscraper brick by brick, but with our method, we just need to assemble the blocks.” — Chen Xiangqian method, we just need to assemble the blocks,” company engineer Chen Xiangqian said. Such modular approaches have been used for high-rise apartment blocks elsewhere, including in Britain and the U.S. Some critics say the method could lead to cityscapes with overly uniform architecture. Liu Peng, associate director of the engineering consulting firm ARUP Beijing, said the method is worth developing because it could become a safe and reliable way to build skyscrapers rapidly. “But it is not perfect, and it does not meet all kinds of personalized demands,” Liu said. “People nowadays want more personalized architecture.” Mini Sky City, which has 19 atriums, 800 apartments and office space for 4,000 people, goes on sale in May. The structure is safe and can withstand earthquakes, Xiao said. The Changsha-based company spent 4½ months fabricating the building’s 2,736 modules before construction began. The first 20 floors were completed last year, and the remaining 37 were built from Jan. 31 to Feb. 17 this year, Xiao said. The company has honed its technology to accelerate its construction speed from two floors to three floors a day, he said. “This is definitely the fastest speed in our industry,” Xiao said. The company is awaiting approval for its 220-floor Sky City in Changsha. TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Monday, May 4, the 124th day of 2015. There are 241 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 4, 1925, an international conference opened in Geneva to forge an agreement against the use of chemical and biological weapons in war; the Geneva Protocol was signed on June 17, 1925 and went into force in 1928. On this date: In 1776, Rhode Island declared its freedom from England, two months before the Declaration of Independence was adopted. In 1886, at Haymarket Square in Chicago, a labor demonstration for an 8-hour work day turned into a deadly riot when a bomb exploded. In 1904, the United States took over construction of the Panama Canal from the French. In 1932, mobster Al Capone, convicted of income-tax evasion, entered the federal penitentiary in Atlanta. (Capone was later transferred to Alcatraz Island.) In 1942, the Battle of the Coral Sea, the first naval clash fought entirely with carrier aircraft, began in the Pacific during World War II. (The outcome was considered a tactical victory for Imperial Japan, but ultimately a strategic one for the Allies.) In 1959, the first Grammy Awards ceremony was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Domenico Modugno won Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu (Volare)”; Henry Mancini won Album of the Year for “The Music from Peter Gunn.” In 1961, the first group of “Freedom Riders” left Washington D.C. to challenge racial segregation on interstate buses and in bus terminals. In 1970, Ohio National Guardsmen opened fire during an anti-war protest at Kent State University, killing four students and wounding nine others. In 1975, comedy performer Moe Howard of “Three Stooges” fame died in Los Angeles at age 77. In 1980, Marshal Josip Broz Tito, president of Yugoslavia, died three days before his 88th birthday. In 1994, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO leader Yasser Arafat signed an accord on Palestinian autonomy that granted self-rule in the Gaza Strip and Jericho. In 2000, the destructive “ILOVEYOU” malware, sent by email, began to infect computer networks and hard drives across the globe. Londoners chose political maverick Ken Livingstone to be their first elected mayor. Ten years ago: A military judge at Fort Hood, Texas, threw out Pfc. Lynndie England’s guilty plea to abusing Iraqi detainees at Abu Ghraib prison, saying he was not convinced the Army reservist knew her actions were wrong at the time. (England was later convicted in a court-martial and sentenced to three years in prison — she served half that term.) A suicide bombing at a police recruitment center in Irbil, Iraq, killed 60 people. Prosecutors rested their case in the molestation trial of Michael Jackson, who ended up being acquitted. Retired Army Col. David Hackworth, 74, a highly decorated Vietnam veteran who spoke out against the war and later became a journalist and advocate for military reform, died in Tijuana, Mexico. Five years ago: A Pakistaniborn U.S. citizen was charged with terrorism and attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction in the botched Times Square bombing.

Dear Annie: My husband graduated from a very prestigious art college. Early in his career, he gave away some paintings to close friends and family members. Recently, he did a beautiful portrait for a family member who insisted on paying my husband. He happily agreed and quoted them a reasonable price. They told my husband they would get a check to him soon. It’s been more than six months, and they haven’t paid a penny. It burns us up to see this piece of art displayed in their home. We know it was probably a mistake to give away his early paintings, but he is trying to rectify this. My husband doesn’t know how to confront this family member without causing a rift. Help. — Artist’s Wife Dear Wife: If your husband plans to earn a living with his art, he needs to stop allowing others to take advantage of him. He should send this family member a “bill,” saying he hopes they like the painting, that he has enjoyed seeing it in their home, and that he is looking forward to receiving the check for his first paid commission. He should remind them of the amount they agreed to, and ask whether they’d like to pay it by check, cash or an online transfer. And in the future, he should not turn over a piece of artwork until he has received payment in full. Otherwise, he will be giving very nice gifts. Dear Annie: This is in reference to “A Concerned Daughter and Mom-to-Be,” whose mother is bipolar and is incapable of keeping herself or her house clean. “Concerned” says the kitchen and bathroom are moldy biohazards. She doesn’t want her baby to spend time there. Please tell her that mold can cause or exacerbate serious health issues, both physical and mental. The daughter mentioned the mother has a “sour smell” about her. This indicates a possible yeast overgrowth in her body. The daughter is absolutely right to keep her baby away from this environment. The mother also needs to be removed from her moldy surroundings. It’s certainly not going to get better on its own. Please tell the daughter. — John Dear John: Thank you. Mold can cause a great many problems, most commonly allergies, as well as sinus and respiratory problems. Some exposure can cause infections or toxic reactions. And toxic molds, left untreated, can cause fatigue, headaches, immunodeficiencies and other more serious health issues. It is important to keep your homes moisture-free. If you notice mold growing, clean it immediately or have it done professionally. The Environmental Protection Agency has information on mold at epa.gov/mold/moldguide.html.

The scammers will get control of your hard drive and install a virus. Then they will con you into giving them a credit card number to install an antivirus. Your computer will be wrecked.

The county mayor was also a nearby neighbor of Barger, and said he spoke with him just two to three weeks ago when he came over as he was working on a fence. “He wanted to talk about politics, and what was going on in the county,” said Davis. He was a good commissioner, and a good neighbor.” Barger lost his wife, Evelyn, to cancer a little over a year ago, and Davis said it had been rough on him since that time. The couple had two sons. Rowland also had praise for the former commissioner. “He was very cooperative in working with the city, and a gentleman in every way,” said Rowland this morning. “He was a strong community leader.” Rowland added that he and Barger spent considerable time comparing gardens. “We both grew tomatoes, and we would argue about whose tomatoes were the largest, and which came in the earliest,” Rowland remembered. Davis said Barger had a garden just last year. Following Barger’s service on the County Commission, he was named by Davis to serve on the Board of Zoning Appeals. Barger was a member of First United Methodist Church in Cleveland. The funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, at the church. The Revs. Drew Henry and Tony McClanahan will be officiating. Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, at the church. Grissom-Serenity Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

Death From Page 1 Photo courtesy of Jason Machen DURING THE APC Championships in Athens, Ga., last month, Samantha Coleman’s 551-pound squat set a new APC record. Woman From Page 1 do it during the meet but said that he didn’t want to make me nervous. It was sweet and very suitable too, because that’s what our life is based around.” The relationship that began in the gym is further solidified at the gym, as Kyle serves as Samantha’s coach and support system. They even enjoy their final meal of the day together at the gym. With the combination of rigorous training and coaching, Samantha has gone further than she ever could have imagined. “In powerlifting, I hold the APC world records in squat, bench-press and deadlift. As far as any federation, I have the second highest total of all women of all time in powerlifting,” she stated. At her last meet, which was the APC Championships in Athens, Ga., Coleman broke the 1,400-pound mark with a squat of 551 pounds, 325-pound bench press and 527-pound deadlift. Making this even more impressive is the fact that the Plan From Page 1 in the state permit do not require an ordinance. “The public information and education program is not something we enforce by ordinance,” Knight said. “But, it is a requirement of the permit.” He said some of the standard operating procedures as designated by the permit are still being developed, and can be attached at a later date. Once the board gives its approval to the new documents, it will go before the County Commission. The state is requiring the document to be finalized and approved by June 1. “I grew up in a small town in Middle Georgia, where they are very conservative and didn’t encourage women to do strength sports. On top of that, I was relentlessly picked on for being as strong as I was. I’d always wanted to get into it, but didn’t think it was acceptable for women to be doing that.” — Samantha Coleman current record holder lifts raw, which means she uses very little supportive devices instead of a single-ply suit. “I always lift raw. I protect my knees and wrists, but wear the minimum. Generally, what I lift raw, is what most women lift in these suits.” In a powerlifting meet there are three events — squat, bench press and deadlift. “The first event in most meets is the squat, which is always the most nerve-wracking. If you don’t at least get one attempt, than you are disqualified for the entire meet. A lot of planning goes into that first attempt, and once you get it and it’s good, you relax a lot more,” Coleman detailed. “Second is usually the bench press and that I really don’t worry about too much. The third lift is the deadlift, which is more fun and has less risk of injury.” Coleman’s main federation is the Southern Powerlifting Federation, but she is competing in the APC as well due, to the big meets being held in a rather close proximity. Currently, Samantha and Kyle split their time between jobs and working out at the Grit House. With her next competition coming up in June and a Southern Powerlifting contest being held at the Grit House in August, train- ing has ramped up. “I train about four days a week, but that depends on where I’m at in my training cycle. A training cycle lasts anywhere from eight to 12 weeks. In the beginning I do more reps, less weight just to get in conditioning and volume. Towards the last four weeks I’m not doing as many reps, but am focusing more and more on the individual lifts that I will be doing at the meet,” Coleman explained. “Everything we do with Kyle’s programing is to prepare you for one day and nine lifts. What you do in the gym is not going to be the same as what you do in the meet. If it is, then you didn’t do enough in the meet — that’s how I look at it.” According to Coleman, nutrition plays another major role in her training. “I’ve found that as long as I’m eating good food, that it’s a lot more effective than a stimulant. Diet, training and rest are all equally as important,” she commented. “Nathan King is my nutritional coach. My diet is designed to give me the energy I need, while still losing body fat, which does not always translate to losing weight on the scale. I love the results I’ve had and have lost 20-25 pounds in three months.” She takes in about 3,000 calories daily, with 250 grams of protein and 150-200 grams of fats and carbs. Having already attained such a high level of success, Coleman would like to see herself eventually take over the top spot. “Right now I have to add about 250 pounds to my total. I want to keep on improving. Eventually, I would like to start training other people,” she said. “The biggest surprise in this has been the influence I’ve had on other women, especially bigger girls. At any size, level or age, you can get into this.” not. She went into shock, and continued to bleed. “She had an amniotic fluid embolism, where her blood did not clot at all,” said Childs. She literally “bled out,” a condition known as disseminated intravascular coagulation. Childs and his team were joined by other doctors as they struggled to save the young mother’s life. Anesthesiologist Dr. Bill Falinski stood by watching Figlestahler’s vital signs fade away. She had no blood pressure, little heart beat, and her vitals continued to plunge. She did not know, until later, the battle that was being waged in the intensive care unit. She used up all of the hospital’s blood in her type, all the universal blood, and additional blood rushed in by Blood Assurance. A nurse had to rush into the parking lot to get that blood from a bloodmobile. In all, she was given 20 units of blood, about twice the amount in a normal body, in addition to platelets and clotting fluids. “They told me there was so much blood on the floor, they had to lay down towels so the doctors could walk,” Figlestahler said in a recent interview. Nurses noted on their report she was passing blood clots the size of tennis balls. Doctors say the survival rate for a person with this emergency is only about 20 percent. Not many survive, and most are diagnosed during their autopsy. Figlestahler has learned of several women who have gone through similar incidents. They did not survive. She believes to this day that she died on the table, as she recalls an out-of-body experience she had during the crisis. “I was not sure what I was,” she remembers. “I did not feel I was a human being, and did not remember being a human being. I did not know what I was, where I was, or why I was there.” She said she was above the table, but did not see individuals. “I only saw shapes,” she said. She came out of her trancelike state when she heard her doctor screaming at her. “He screamed my name, and said, ‘I’m doing my part, you have to do yours!’ ” That last-second plea was apparently enough to revive the young mother to help the doctors finally stop the bleeding. She awoke later on a ventilator, and that was when she told her doctor she believed she had died, at least for a short time. Childs’ response was to tell her to rest, which was not an easy task. They had restrained her on the bed to keep her immobilized. The ordeal, and near-death experience, has changed Figlestahler’s life. She and her husband have four healthy, active boys who she says are a handful. But, she vividly remembers she was Contributed photo SISSY FIGLESTAHLER, is shown with her growing family. She and her husband, Andy, are shown during the Easter holidays with sons, Patrick, 4, John Peter, 6, Jack, 8, and Andrew, 10. almost taken away from sharing her life with them. She is an avid supporter of several donor programs, especially Blood Assurance. She plans to attend the grand reopening of the Cleveland donor center, which has moved from Keith Street to Village Green. The event is scheduled for Thursday, May 21. “Several people volunteered to give the blood that saved my life,” she said. “I can do no less for someone else.” At Blood Assurance, she is trying to build up to 20 units donated, the amount she received during her ordeal. She said she came to Blood Assurance on the one-year anniversary of her experience. “It was very emotional,” she said. She and Andy have shared the experience with her boys, so they will remember how fortunate they are to have their mother through these growingup years. She also wants to donate her entire body to science when she does die. The experience also formed a very close, but sad, relationship with the anesthesiologist from that day. Falinski came to her room a couple of days after the emergency and was surprised at her condition. They talked about the fact she apparently “died” during the event, and quickly became close friends. Unfortunately, the doctor was diagnosed with lung cancer a few months later, and their friendship endured through his illness. They had become so close, Sissy was with the doctor, and his wife, when he later passed away. A young, vibrant mother today, Figlestahler has also altered her views somewhat on life and death since that fateful day. Based on her experience, she now believes that when your life is over (on this plain), your memories are erased as you move on. “I was right there at death’s door,” she emphasizes. “Now I know that this isn’t all there is. I know there’s life after this! I am not afraid to die!” She shared a favorite saying about life and death. It says, “We are not human beings on a spiritual journey, but rather spiritual beings on a human journey!” She said she is thankful for all the things that happened to her during and since her ordeal. Figlestahler is thankful her doctor, who came and sat by her bedside for two hours following the surgery. She wrote a letter to the Chattanooga Medical Association, and he was one of 10 Chattanooga physicians recognized on Doctors Appreciation Day. Childs was on vacation when her emergency happened, but came in to save her life. She is thankful Parkridge East has a blood bank. If not, she would have surely died. She is thankful for her family and her four healthy boys: Andrew, 10, Jack, 8, John Peter, 6, and Patrick, who was born on that fateful day four years ago. She is thankful to be able to enjoy an active life. She is a writer for the Wisk Foods magazine out of California, and teaches a free yoga class at Broad Street Methodist Church every Wednesday at 6 p.m. She also has the full-time job of raising her sons. She is thankful the experience has reaffirmed her belief that there is life after death, and that she has nothing to fear from what the future has in store. She is tremendously thankful for “the day I died!” 16—Cleveland Daily Banner—Monday, May 4, 2015 www.clevelandbanner.com NYPD retraining focuses on talking arrestees into handcuffs NEW YORK (AP) — Two New York City cops approach a gray sedan with a suspected drunken driver slumped over the wheel. They ask him to get out, and that’s when the trouble begins. The suspect, dressed in a rumpled suit, curses and hollers at the officers because he doesn’t want to go to jail. He refuses to be handcuffed and backs away, yelling, “Can’t we work this out?” But even as the man’s temper rises, the officers stay impassive and firm, explaining why they need to take him downtown. Eventually, the man calms down and gives up. “I’ve realized,” Detective Leonardo Pino said, “that if I try to meet his tone with my tone, it doesn’t get better.” The scenario was fake — the suspected drunken driver was a fellow officer and the street scene was a set built in a Hollywood-style sound stage. It’s all part of a massive, across-theboard retraining ordered for the nation’s largest police force in the wake of last year’s fatal arrest of Eric Garner. The Associated Press got an exclusive look at the New York Police Department’s three-day course that’s aimed at discouraging verbal abuse and needless physical force. The message to every one of the department’s 35,000 officers is, quite simply, keep cool. Cynicism, condescension and complacency are a formula for escalating emotions that can put civilians — and officers’ careers — in harm’s way. As one instructor put it in a recent classroom session, “Once you put your hands on someone, you can’t go back.” The instructors that day didn’t mention Garner, the unarmed black man from Staten Island whose videotaped death in a chokehold — a tactic banned by the NYPD more than 20 years ago — fueled loud protests against police. But the case hangs heavy over the retraining, as do the ongoing protests in Baltimore, where a black suspect died of a spinal cord injury after his April 12 arrest. “We want to talk people into their cuffs,” said Lt. Suzanne St. Jacques, NYPD commanding officer for physical training and tactics. “We want to talk them down into compliance, de-escalate the situation. ... The emphasis right now is the talk down before the takedown.” Even when enforcing the law gets messy, officers “have to have a thick skin,” said First Deputy Police Commissioner Benjamin B. Tucker, who oversees the police academy. “People will goad you. People will say things to you. Face it — not everybody loves a cop,” Tucker said. “But even when they don’t like you, you have a responsibility to respect them and leave them with their dignity even as you do your job.” Over the three days at the department’s new $750 million police academy, officers start in the classroom with instruction on verbal techniques for calming down a combative suspect. The course emphasizes the human side of the job, reminding officers that policing is about helping people. “A lot of times officers can forget why they came on the job, what brought them to this profession to begin with,” said another academy commander, Lt. Bobby Lorne Sheppard. “It’s a very noble profession.” An entire day is spent in a gymnasium where instructors teach the latest tactics for taking down uncooperative suspects without putting pressure on the neck or chest. Soon the academy will also introduce role-playing exercises, like the one with the drunken driver, using elaborate sets made AP photo to look like a grocery store, a POlicE OfficERS talk with a pedestrian on 125th Street in the Harlem section of New York, subway station or a street scene.

Bomber’s Russian relatives to testify in marathon trial BOSTON (AP) — Russian relatives of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are expected to testify at his trial as his lawyers continue to make their case to spare his life. Five family members are expected to take the witness stand Monday in federal court. Prosecutors urged Judge George O’Toole Jr. last week to press Tsarnaev’s lawyers to make sure his relatives testify soon because 16 FBI agents have been assigned to guard and protect them while they are in the United States. The family members arrived in Boston on April 23. “It’s an enormous expense and distraction for the agency, and that’s just part of the expense that the government has endured,” Assistant U.S. Attorney William Weinreb said during a sidebar discussion in court with Tsarnaev’s lawyers and the judge, according to a transcript that was made public.

April 27, 2015; May 4, 2015 NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The investigation of politically motivated lane closures of the George Washington Bridge in 2013 heads to court Monday as two former political allies of Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are scheduled to make initial appearances. Christie’s former deputy chief of staff, Bridget Kelly, and his former top appointee at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Bill Baroni, were named in a nine-count indictment unsealed Friday after a yearlong investigation. Kelly said Friday she is innocent; a defense lawyer also said Baroni is innocent. David Wildstein, who went to high school with Christie and later became a top official in the Port Authority, pleaded guilty Friday to two criminal counts. He admitted that he helped plot lane closures in Fort Lee on an approach to the world’s busiest bridge as political payback against that community’s Democratic mayor for failing to support Christie’s re-election campaign. “If David Wildstein was willing to repeatedly lie to settle a petty political grudge, nobody should be surprised at his eagerness to concoct any story that he thinks will help him stay out of federal prison,” said Baroni’s lawyer Michael Baldassarre. “We’re confident that everyone will see this desperate ploy for exactly what this is.” Christie has not been implicated in the criminal case. Here are some related aspects. —CHRISTIE AND 2016 The charges provide mixed news for Christie as he tries to regain momentum in support of an expected presidential bid. Christie appears to have been cleared of any allegations that he personally participated in the scheme, but the charges brought by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey still hit close to home. Christie’s aides and backers hope the developments will allow the governor to put this chapter behind him less than a year before the first presidential primaries, even as legal proceedings have just begun. In many ways, the outcome was the best he could have hoped for — little new information and no names mentioned beyond those Christie had already cut ties to. —PORT AUTHORITY REFORM: The indictments and the stilllooming investigation involving the former chairman of the Port Authority have underlined the need for reform at the agency. David Samson wasn’t mentioned, meaning the separate investigation stemming from his time as chairman could yield further embarrassment for the bistate authority. But despite the scandals, its leadership is optimistic. Port Authority Chairman John Degnan said there’s an opportunity to learn from the indictments, “if there’s anything we missed that we should do.” “In the seeds of disaster were the potential for reform. I view the indictments as another step in the healing process, reformation process,” Degnan, who was appointed by Christie last year after Samson resigned, told The Associated Press last week. Degnan stressed that the agency’s new whistleblower policy is “one of the most aggressive in the country.” Degnan said the agency supports employees who come forward if they see any potential violations, a policy he said could have avoided the laneclosing scandal since some employees likely were afraid to report the actions of superiors. —PUBLIC MONEY: New Jersey residents have paid about $10 million in legal costs related to the closure, according to an AP review of documents from the Legislature and the Department of Law and Public Safety. The largest share — about $7.3 million — went for the governor’s outside counsel, the law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, which produced a report that cleared the governor of any connection to a politically motivated lane closing. But the Democrat-led Legislature has also racked up some $1 million in legal fees. The state accrued costs for outside legal counsel used to represent state employees involved in the probe, and Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich says the borough’s legal fees have topped $200,000. It’s unclear exactly how much federal cash has gone into the probe. U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said his office does not track how much the investigation costs, but added that every investigation is different and requires differing amounts of resources. Ga. sheriff accused of shooting woman LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — An Atlanta-area sheriff who was acquitted three years ago in a major public corruption case is now accused of shooting a woman in a subdivision near the suburb of Lawrenceville. The woman was found shot in the abdomen Sunday evening, Gwinnett County police said. She was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center in critical condition, authorities said. The shooter was identified as Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill, Gwinnett County police said in a statement. He refused to speak with investigators at the scene and was released with no charges, police said. “He refuses to give any statements,” Gwinnett County police Sgt. Brian Doan told reporters late Sunday. The shooting was “reported as accidental,” police said late Sunday in a statement, which did not elaborate on who characterized it that way. In 2012, Hill was elected sheriff despite being under indictment on felony corruption charges. A jury the following year acquitted him of the 27 felony charges, including theft and giving false statements. The jury’s acquittal cleared the way for Hill to continue as sheriff in the county south of Atlanta. The charges had stemmed from Hill’s previous term as Clayton County’s sheriff, from 2005 to 2008. The indictment accused Hill of using his office for personal gain. Special Assistant District Attorney Layla Zon said during the trial that Hill used his county car for trips that he paid for, in part, by using a government credit card. But Hill’s attorneys argued that the charges were politically motivated. Hill has drawn controversy since the day he first took office in 2005, when he fired 27 deputies. A judge later ordered that the deputies be reinstated. Two lawyers who represented Hill during his trial on the criminal charges didn’t immediately respond to phone messages and emails from The Associated Press early Monday. Late Sunday, Gwinnett police said investigators have been consulting with the District Attorney’s Office and no charges have been filed in the ongoing investigation. Possible charges against Hill would proceed differently since he’s a sheriff, police said. “When you’re an active sheriff in the state of Georgia, there are certain legal requirements and steps that have to be taken,” Doan told reporters at the scene. “It’s not just an average citizen where you can take out a warrant for their arrest.” The home where police say the shooting occurred is a $329,990 model home for sale in the Park Haven neighborhood, Paran Homes advertises on its website. Paran Homes representatives didn’t immediately return a phone message left early Monday.

Nepal is one of the world’s poorest nations, and its economy, largely based on tourism, has been crippled by the earthquake, which left at least 7,200 people dead. While there are no clear estimates yet of how much it will cost to rebuild, it will certainly be enormously expensive. “In two to three weeks a serious reconstruction package AP photo U.S. SOLDIERS unload equipment from a U.S. Air Force Boeing C-17 Globemaster III shortly after it needs to be developed, where we’ll need enormous help from landed in Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, Nepal, Sunday.

Meanwhile, Buddhists turned out to visit shrines and monasteries to mark the birthday of Gautam Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. At the base of the Swayambhunath shrine, located atop a hill overlooking Kathmandu, hundreds of people chanted prayers as they walked around the hill where the white iconic stupa with its gazing eyes is located. Some of the structures around the stupa, built in the 5th century, were damaged in the quake. Police blocked off the steep steps to the top of the shrine, also called the “Monkey Temple” because of the many monkeys who live on its slopes. “I am praying for peace for the thousands of people who were killed,” said Santa Lama, a 60year-old woman. “I hope there will be peace and calm in the country once again and the worst is over.” Kathmandu’s main airport remained closed since Sunday to large aircraft delivering aid due to runaway damage, but U.N. officials said the overall logistics situation was improving. The airport was built to handle only medium-size jetliners, but not the large military and cargo planes that have been flying in aid supplies, food, medicines, and rescue and humanitarian workers, said Birendra Shrestha, the manager of Tribhuwan International Airport. There have been reports of cracks on the runway and other problems at the only airport in Nepal capable of handling jetliners. “You’ve got one runway, and you’ve got limited handling facilities, and you’ve got the ongoing commercial flights,” said Jamie McGoldrick, the U.N. coordinator for Nepal. “You put on top of that massive relief items coming in, the search and rescue teams that have clogged up this airport. And I think once they put better systems in place, I think that will get better.” He said the bottlenecks in aid delivery were slowly disappearing, and the Nepalese government eased customs and other bureaucratic hurdles on humanitarian aid following complaints from the U.N. Greece makes progress with creditors 19 ministers the day before the IMF repayment may be the moment real progress in the talks is reported. An official in Athens, who like others spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks were ongoing, said “there have been many important steps that bring an agreement closer.” Meanwhile, a eurozone official said there was “convergence on some issues” but stressed that more work was needed on others. The officials did not elaborate where advances have been made but Athens has previously noted progress has been made on tax reform, privatization and changes to the country’s bureaucracy. However, Greek Labor Minister Panos Skourletis said there was still a difference of opinion on labor issues. Skourletis said the IMF was pressing Greece very hard on key issues the left-wing Syriza party had been fighting against during its successful election campaign in January — in particular the zero deficit clause, maintenance of a low minimum wage and abo- lition of a 13th monthly pension payment. “They are asking us not to touch any of those things that during the last five years destroyed the lives of Greek citizens. Is that possible?” he told Mega TV. He said that there were more moderate voices among the creditors but the IMF was the most rigid. Speaking about Greece’s current cash flow issues and whether the country can fulfill its loan repayments, Skourletis said the government was trying to make sure it had the money to pay. “The choice is for the country to repay its obligations and to reach an agreement. That is our choice, our choice hasn’t changed,” he said. “If that is not achievable, it will not be this side that has the largest portion of responsibility.” European officials have made it clear time and again that they do not want to see Greece leave the shared euro currency, a move that could have an unpredictable impact on the economies and finances of the continent. Britain’s Clegg faces election debacle SHEFFIELD, England (AP) — At Britain’s last election campaign, he was hailed as the most popular party leader since Winston Churchill, an unexpected star who upstaged the two dominant parties. Some even wondered whether he was the “British Obama.” Nick Clegg’s meteoric rise transformed him from a relatively obscure leader of the left-ofcenter Liberal Democrats — Britain’s third party and perennial “also-rans” — into deputy prime minister. Five years on, he may be headed for the political graveyard — paying for his decision to enter a marriage of convenience with the ruling Conservative Party. The Lib Dems are bracing themselves for a disastrous election, and Clegg, 48, faces the humiliating prospect of losing his own seat in Parliament. Many have not forgiven Clegg for breaking his pre-election pledge to oppose any increase in university tuition fees. Just months after the 2010 election, the Conservative-led government that he joined announced those fees would triple to 9,000 pounds ($13,600) per year. “He didn’t stand by his guns. Now he’s gone to government, people have seen the other side of him,” said Tony Lamb, a 57-yearold butcher in the constituency of Sheffield Hallam, where Clegg is fighting to keep a seat he’s safely held for two terms. “People think he’s just somebody’s puppet, making up the numbers. That’s all he’s done.” That harsh judgment sums up the views of many voters who have turned their backs on Clegg, whose fall from grace has been as spectacular as his rise was sudden. As Britain heads into its most unpredictable election in years, the reversal of the Lib Dems’ fortunes is a stark reminder of the volatile coalition politics that almost certainly lies ahead. Polls predict that neither Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservatives nor their main rival, the Labour Party, will win outright in Thursday’s general election. Most Britons expect some coalition with smaller fringe parties in the mix. But in 2010 the field was much less open, and Clegg appeared the fresh, authentic outsider as he took on his more established rivals. A standout performance in a TV debate brought unprecedented support for Clegg and the Lib Dems, and when the Conservatives failed to win a majority, Clegg became kingmaker. But being the junior partner in the ruling coalition — Britain’s first since World War II — meant the Lib Dems had to go along with Tory-led austerity policies, a move that alienated supporters and tarnished Clegg’s reputation. Soon, the man who sparked “Cleggmania” became “Calamity Clegg” — the target of vitriol around British campuses. “People were queuing around the block voting for him the last time,” said Sam Matthews, 22, a recent graduate. “There was a real feeling of an alternative. But we’ve lost all that sense of hope. “I don’t know how any student can vote for him again,” he added. “He’s saddled all of us with debt, thousands and thousands of pounds.” Matthews says he will likely vote for the Green Party — one of several former outliers, including the Scottish nationalists and the right-wing, anti-Europe UK Independence Party. They have all gained ground as the Lib Dems plunged. The Liberal Democrats are expected to lose as many as half of their 56 seats in Parliament. Polls suggest that Clegg is in danger of losing the race in his constituency, a wealthy, hilly suburb of the central English city of Sheffield that has been held by the Lib Dems since 1997. The race there will be one of the most closely watched on election night. If Clegg is worried, he and his party machine are not showing it. Campaigning with his wife in a Sheffield beer garden, he cheerfully delivered his well-rehearsed line that the Lib Dems are the only ones who can help the two main parties anchor Britain and ward off unpredictable coalitions with radical fringe parties. “Only the Liberal Democrats now are the guarantee and the guarantors of stability and strength and fairness in the next parliament,” he said, as dozens of party faithful cheered dutifully. Clegg readily concedes that his compromises in government have come at a cost. He even issued a video saying “sorry” for his tuition fee debacle, which went viral as a musical parody. But he insists that his party is still best placed to hold the balance of power for a second time. That is less likely than in 2010, but still possible — another five years of a Conservative-Lib Dem coalition is considered one of the potential outcomes. Some in Sheffield say they are ready to give Clegg a second chance. But others, like Matthews, have given up on him. “His words are pretty much worthless now,” Matthew said. “I’m sure he’s not a bad person, but I don’t feel sorry for him at all.” AP photo ISRAELI POLICE OFFICERS detain an Israeli Ethiopian during a demonstration in Tel Aviv, Sunday. Several thousand people, mostly from Israel’s Jewish Ethiopian minority, protested in Tel Aviv against racism and police brutality on Sunday, shutting down a major highway and scuffling with police. Israel: Ethiopian protest exposes ‘wound’ JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s ceremonial president said Monday that an outbreak of violent protests by Ethiopian Jews has “exposed an open, bleeding wound in the heart of Israeli society” and that the country must respond to their grievances. Reuven Rivlin spoke a day after thousands of people clashed with police in Tel Aviv. The protesters shut down a major highway, hurled stones and bottles at police officers and overturned a squad car. They were ultimately dispersed with tear gas and water cannons. More than 60 people were wounded and 40 arrested. Simmering frustrations among Israel’s Ethiopian community boiled over after footage emerged last week of an Ethiopian Israeli in an army uniform being beaten by police. Ethiopian Jews began migrat- ing to Israel three decades ago. Many complain of racism, lack of opportunity, endemic poverty and routine police harassment. Rivlin said Israel was seeing “the pain of a community crying out over a sense of discrimination, racism, and of being unanswered.” “We must look directly at this open wound. We have erred. We did not look, and we did not listen enough,” he said. “We are not strangers to one another, we are brothers, and we must not deteriorate into a place we will all regret.” Sunday night’s violence was the second such protest in several days, and demonstrations are expected to continue. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to meet Monday with the beaten soldier and community leaders. About 120,000 Ethiopian Jews live in Israel today, a small minority in a country of 7 million. Their absorption has been problematic, with many arriving without a modern education and then falling into unemployment and poverty as their family structures disintegrate. Ethiopian Jews trace their ancestors to the ancient Israelite tribe of Dan. The community was cut off from the rest of the Jewish world for more than 1,000 years. Israeli clandestine operations rescued large groups of Ethiopian Jews from war and famine in the 1980s and early 1990s. Later waves of immigration also included the Falash Mura, members of a community that converted to Christianity under duress more than a century ago but have reverted to Judaism.
