County slams brakes on wheel tax
Commissioners don’t want repeat of 2012 vote
By BRIAN GRAVES
Banner Staff Writer
It was history that appears to have brought
the idea of a Bradley County wheel tax this
year to a screeching halt.
County Commissioners put the brakes on
the proposed $30 wheel tax Monday night by a
vote of 11-2.
Commissioner Robert Rominger, who made
Inside Today
the original proposal, and Commissioner
Johnny Mull were the two members who cast
votes in the affirmative.
Commissioner Charlotte Peak was absent
due to a family matter.
The shadow of a decisive 3-1 defeat at the
polls of a similar measure in 2012 seemed
present throughout the 30-minute portion of
the meeting.
“This generates 2 1/2 times the money
needed for the school bond,” said
Commissioner Dan Rawls. “I don’t think we
should be doing that in the guise of doing that
for education.”
He referred to statistics which had been preBanner photo, BRIAN GRAVES

One of Cleveland and Bradley

J. Hoyle Rymer, 70, a corporate
executive and philanthropist, lost
his two-decade battle with cancer
Monday at his Florida residence.
His wife and sons were at his side.
He was president of Magic Chef
Inc. from 1978 to 1988, and
served as president and director
of Cleveland Associated Industries
from 1976 to 1992.
Rymer served on several other
board and organizations, and was

Cleveland Mayor Tom Rowland
commented on Rymer.
“Although residing in Florida,
Hoyle never forgot Cleveland.
Personally I have lost a friend and
Cleveland has lost a tremendous
cheerleader,” the mayor said this
morning.
“I worked with Hoyle in establishing the shelter on Wildwood
Avenue,” Rowland continued.
“Without him, the shelter would
never have gotten its start financially.
“The Museum Center at Five
Points was another favorite institute of Hoyle,” Rowland said.
“After moving to Florida he never
forgot his friends and the institutions he loved in Cleveland. The
last time I was with him was a
visit with U.S. Sen. Bob Corker."

present vision
for Woolen Mill
By JOYANNA LOVE
Banner Senior Staff Writer
It stands downtown as a landmark of
Cleveland’s heritage in the textile industry.
Unknown to some and seen as a major undertaking by others, the Old Woolen Mill was
recently chosen as the backdrop for dreams of
what the future could hold for downtown.
University of Tennessee architecture students
with the Smart Communities Initiative presented
visions for the site during a presentation to community leaders Monday.
The presentations were given in a part of the
complex built in 1890.
The Cleveland City Schools system is planning to open a new
school in August.
The Board of Education
approved a plan for the school system to submit forms to the
Tennessee
Department
of
Education by June 1, to make the
Teen Learning Center a standalone school.
The plan to
move TLC out
from under the
Cleveland High
School umbrella
was
approved
unanimously by
the board. There
are several steps
to the plan, but
the first is the
Ringstaff
submission
of
registration forms to TDOE.
The plan was compiled by former Bradley County Director of
Schools Johnny McDaniel, who
spent many hours interviewing
administrators and teachers at
Cleveland High, Cleveland Middle
and TLC.
McDaniel, who received a
stipend of $3,000 for the work,
was highly praised for his overall
report and tentative plan.
“He spent hour and hours on
this, and talked with the people

Budget
proposal
to shift
spending
By JOYANNA LOVE
Banner Senior Staff Writer
Bradley County Schools 201516 budget proposal will shift funds
from capital projects to salaries
and benefits to balance the budget.
Scott Humberd, interim director
of schools, listed his top three priorities as funding extended contracts, continuing the math coordinator position and adding another JROTC instructor at Bradley
Central High School.
The budget sets out to meet
these priorities costing $170,646
by moving $150,000 from capital
outlay and receiving $30,000 from
the U.S. Army for the JROTC program at Bradley Central High
School. There would be $1.06 million left in the budget for capital
projects and building improvements.
Some board members had concerns about the funds being
moved out of the capital outlay
budget.
Moving the money from the capital projects would mean $75,000
less for building improvements
and $75,000 less for other capital
outlay. Board chair Nicholas Lillios

group’s William F. Johnson
Leadership Award in 1988.
He was an expert hunter and
fisherman, a passion that led to
his foundational partnership in
Royal Wolf Lodge, a five-star
remote fly-fishing lodge in
Alaska’s Katmai National Park
and Preserve.
Educated at the McCallie
School (and later a member of its
board of trustees), he was a
graduate of Davidson College
and received his master of business administration from Emory
University.
Always emphasizing the value
of education, he and his late
father began the Robert and
Hoyle Rymer Foundation to provide nursing scholarships at
Cleveland State Community
College and Chattanooga State
College.
With the support and inspiration of Dr. Paul Conn, the foundation partnered with Lee
University in 1990 to establish
the Rymer Scholar Program. It is
designed to defray the high cost
of a private education in order to
encourage the brightest local
high school seniors to stay in
Bradley County. The program
has grown from two annual
recipients to nine, awarding
more than 200 scholarships in
the last 24 years.
A lifelong Episcopalian, he
was a parishioner at St. Luke’s
Episcopal Church in Cleveland
before joining St. Barnabas
Episcopal Church on the family’s
move to DeLand.
Once there, he made the
church and its school the centerpiece of his philanthropy. He
served four terms on the executive committee of the school’s
board of trustees, twice as president, and was chairman of the
capital campaign to build the
church’s Harwood Family Life
Center.
Also in DeLand, he served as
president
of
the
Family
Enterprise Center of Stetson
University.
Proudly conservative, he was
recognized as a Tennessee
Republican Statesman for 25
years.
He was awarded a Bronze
Star for his service as a U.S.
Army lieutenant in Vietnam and a
Meritorious Service Award for
pioneering work in cost analysis
at the Pentagon. He also worked
at the Department of Health,
Education and Welfare before
embarking on his career of
entrepreneurship and industry.
Survivors include his wife, the
former Sharon Lynn Spence,
originally of Sevierville; two
sons: John Hoyle Rymer and
Robert Atchley Rymer; one sister, Malinda Rymer Grosz, of
Ocala, Fla.; one brother, Robert
Rymer, of Key West, Fla.; and
numerous nieces, nephews and
cousins.
Another beloved son, Charlie
Oates Rymer, died in 2004.
The family will receive visitors
from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at
Ralph Buckner Funeral Home.
The Rev. Don Lyon, former
rector of St. Barnabas and a
close family friend, will celebrate
his funeral at 10 a.m. Friday.
May 8, 2015, at St. Luke’s.
In planning his arrangements,
Mr. Rymer said he wanted his
pallbearers to be “the men who
carried me throughout my career
and my life, and I want them to
carry me one last time.” They are
Jerry Ward, Bill Ward, Bill
McClure, Roger Hanger, Larry
Brand, Nelson Wooldridge, Tiger

After a private burial in the
family plot at Hilcrest Cemetery,
friends are invited to a reception
from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the

Instead of flowers, memorial
donations may be made to the

pressure for student athletes.
“I understand what Mr. Rose is
trying to do, but I think this policy may not be the way to do it,
because there are a lot of fantastic coaches that come from elementary school that help with
middle school,” school board
member Amanda Lee said.
“If there is a problem with one
person, you need to deal with
that person, not ruin it for all the
coaches, who are making a difference.”
Rose said the only option
available to the board members
to address the issue directly was
through policy.
“I am trying to do what I can
do as a board member. If there
are other issues that need to be
addressed I can’t address them,”
Rose said. “In my opinion, there
are issues.”
Lee said she felt the administration should take care of the
issue.
Board Chairman Nicholas
Lillios asked what the issue was.

they need to be worried about the
By JOYANNA LOVE

A proposed policy considered
by the Bradley County Board of
Education tonight would change
who principals can choose to
coach their school’s sports
teams.
At a work session Monday,
school board member Charlie
Rose placed a policy addition on
tonight’s agenda that would prohibit employees, contractors or
volunteers at any Bradley
County school from coaching at
another school.
“The focus of all Bradley
County Schools employees
should be to develop every child
to his or her highest academic,
physical and spiritual potential.
Healthy competition in the form
of interscholastic athletics is very
beneficial for children in reaching their full potential, as long as
the well-being of the individual
student is the focus,” Rose said.
He said having employees from
one school coaching at another
has led to the focus moving from
the student to creating a sense of
middle school,” Lee said. “They
don’t need to worry about if they
are going to leave Ocoee Middle
School and go to Bradley High
School or leave Ocoee Middle
School and go to Walker Valley.”
She said every child needs to
be “afforded the same opportunities, no matter where they are
going … don’t make a child feel
like they have to be dishonest
about where they are going to
high school.”
Board member Chris Turner
said he had also heard of issues.
“My phone and my email has
been blistered over issues, so
there are obvious problems. …
The people that I have talked
with have kids that have quit
athletics because they were
ostracized. They were cut or they
did not get the opportunity to
play to their potential,” Turner
said.
“This is my suggestion: Find
an … opportunity where you can
get your coaches together and
focus on nutrition, weightlifting,
strength building, character
building — [in order] to show
some cohesion in Bradley County
schools. That does a lot to
change the perception that you
will be punished if you pick one
high school over another.”
Ocoee Middle School Principal
Ron Spangler said he would like
a committee to be formed to
study whether the issue is one of
personnel or one of policy.
Middle schools are required to
follow TSSAA guidelines for who
they allow to play on their sports
teams.
“We are in a very awkward
position in middle school. Our
number one priority is to hire
quality teachers for our program
and if we get a coach … then we
are fortunate,” Spangler said. “I
would love to have my staff
coaching my kids.”
When this combination is not
available, Spangler looks to other
Bradley County employees as
potential coaches. Spangler said
if either of these options is not
available he would look for a volunteer coach who is not a parent
of one of the students.
“Do we have some pressure on
our students? Yes we do. I don’t
think removing a coach … is
going to solve the pressure on
our kids. Our athletic arena puts
enough pressure on our kids
without saying a coach does or
does not put the pressure on,”
Spangler said. “There is pressure
from the coaches because if they
are a good athlete I am going to
want them to play for me.”
He said he was not aware of an
issue he had not addressed.
Rose said his goal was not to
hurt the athletic program.
“But still I would not like to
think that our children were not
treated (right) and feel uncomfortable at the school,” Rose said.
“I hate that it got to this point,
brought up in a board meeting.”
The school board will meet for
a voting session at 5:30 tonight.

The newborn bAby princess, born to parents Kate Duchess of
Cambridge and Prince William, is carried in a car seat by her father
from The Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital, in London, Saturday.
Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to their second child, a
baby girl on Saturday morning. Her name has been announced as
Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
Britain's new princess named
Charlotte Elizabeth Diana
LONDON (AP) — It's a name
that immediately evokes British
royal history: Princess Charlotte
Elizabeth Diana.
Prince William and his wife
Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge,
on Monday announced the name
they picked for Britain's newborn
princess, a choice seen as a tribute to both Prince William's parents and grandmother, the
queen, as well as a link to Kate's
family.
The princess, the second child
of William and Kate, will be
known as Her Royal Highness
Princess Charlotte of Cambridge,
royal officials said.
The birth of Princess Charlotte
marks a new chapter for William
and Kate, widely seen as the
monarchy's most modern, popular couple. But the names they
chose are firmly rooted in royal
family history. Charlotte, the feminine form of Charles, appears to
be a nod to the newborn's grandfather, Prince Charles. The baby's
middle names honor Queen
Elizabeth II, the infant's 89-yearold great-grandmother, and the
late Princess Diana, William's
mother and the baby's grandmother.
Charlotte also features in
Kate's family, as the middle name
of her sister, Pippa Middleton.
The newborn princess is fourth
in line to the throne after Charles,
William and her older brother, 21month-old Prince George.
William and Kate introduced
the baby princess to the world
CHURCH
ACTIVITIES
Jessie Conner will sing at
Family Chapel, 241 Eisenhower
St., Wednesday at 7 p.m.
Saturday evening, just 12 hours
after Kate checked into St. Mary's
Hospital in London to give birth.
The baby weighed in at 8 pounds,
3 ounces (3.7 kilograms).
Her name was warmly welcomed Monday by royal fans.
Some were particularly pleased
about the tribute to Diana, still
remembered fondly by many.
Diana, who died in 1997 at age
36, gave birth to William and
Harry at the same London hospital where Charlotte was born.
“I so much wanted the name
Diana to be in there somewhere,”
said Munever Halil, 52. “I wanted
it to be Elizabeth Diana, so I
think it's lovely.”
Charles Spencer, Diana's
brother, also approved of the
choice.
“Perfect names. My 2-year-old
Charlotte Diana will be thrilled at
cousinly name-sharing,” he
tweeted.
Earlier Monday, Westminster
Abbey's bells pealed and gun
salutes were fired across London
in honor of the newborn princess.
In a display of traditional
pageantry, dozens of deafening
volleys were fired from Hyde Park
and the Tower of London to mark
the occasion.
The royal couple had kept the
world guessing about the baby's
name until after both sets of
grandparents got a chance to visit
Kensington Palace on Sunday to
meet their granddaughter.
Bookmakers face a large payout — Charlotte had been a frontrunner, alongside other guesses.
“Charlotte was the hot tip over
the weekend,” said Ladbrokes
spokeswoman Jessica Bridge,
who estimated that the industry
may lose 1 million pounds ($1.51
million) over the name. “We may
have lost a fortune, but we're
paying out with a smile and wish
the duke and duchess all the
best.”
Cleveland police recently
investigated car burglaries that
resulted in nearly $10,000 worth
of damage and stolen property.
CPD responded to calls from
the Comfort Inn on Interstate
Drive, and upon arriving found at
least three different vehicles had
been broken into.
Passenger-side windows were
smashed on two of the vehicles.
Stolen items included a handgun, laptop, tablet, GPS device,
and a high-end camera. All of the
victims were from out of town.
An investigation is ongoing,
but according to CPD detectives,
there was no camera footage
available.
n A Cleveland man was reportedly robbed at gunpoint in his
hotel room.
The man, who was staying at
the Whitewater Lodge near
Highway 64, told CPD officers he
was taking a shower and when
he emerged, two men in ski
masks entered his room.
The victim described the men
as being black, but added he
could only see their eyes and
mouths through the masks. The
complainant related to officers
that the men threw him against
the wall and snatched his designer watch from his wrist, before
asking him what else he had.
The complainant stated he
gave the men his wallet with
$300 in it. They took the cash,
but left the wallet. The victim
could not offer more details, but
someone staying in a neighboring
room told police tthey saw the
men leave in a silver car of an
unknown make and model.
n Bradley County Sheriff’s
Deputy Steve McCullough came
across two people on the corner
of Freewill Road and 22nd Street.
Jackie Flowers, 45, and Steven
Swaggerty, 36, both of Cleveland,
where reportedly pushing a white
Kawasaki motorcycle from out of
the woods and up to the rear of a
yellow truck.
The pair claimed they were
picking the bike up for a friend, a
“Jeff Johnson,” but when the officer checked the registration he
found a different name. The registration said the bike was blue,
but the color appeared to have
been altered with paint, reports
said.
When BCSO detectives spoke
with the owner of the bike at his
residence, he told them his bike
had broken down, so he hid it in
the woods until he could pick it
up later, but that he did not give
anyone permission to fetch the
bike for him.
Dispatch informed Deputy
McCullough that Flowers had a
warrant for theft over $1,000.
Flowers was arrested on the warrant and for the theft of the bike
along with Swaggerty. They were
both charged with theft over
$1,000.
n CPD Officer Chris Allen
responded to a reported fight on
Aurora Avenue. When he arrived
he found the female victim lying
on the ground, having a seizure.
When she regained consciousness, she related to Allen that
she was outside when she was
approached by Crystal Scott, 35,
of Cleveland, who began striking
her with a belt.
The victim stated she could not
remember what happened next,
because she started having a
seizure.
Allen located Scott, who
reportedly admitted to the
assault. Scott told the officer she
did walk up to the victim and
begin striking her with a belt and
when the victim fell to the ground
she kept beating her.
Scott then related to the officer
that she had also grabbed the
woman by her clothes and
dragged her down the street
while continuing to beat her.
Scott was arrested for aggravated
assault and the victim was taken
to the hospital via ambulance.

TENNESSEE BRIEFS
Pilot killed when small plane
crashes in Middle Tennessee
MULBERRY (AP) — Officials say
the pilot of a small plane that
crashed in Middle Tennessee has
died.
Media report the Federal
Aviation Administration said the
Cessna 182 crashed Sunday
afternoon on a farm in in Lincoln
County near the community of
Mulberry, but it wasn't discovered
until Monday morning when a
farmhand found the wreckage
and called authorities.
The pilot, 46-year-old Linda
Bauman of Belvidere, died at the
scene. Officials say she was
reported missing Sunday night.
Lincoln County Sheriff Murray
Blackwelder said the wreckage
was scattered over a large area,

through mentoring and business partnerships.
Obama launches foundation
to help minority young men
NEW YORK (AP) — Acting in
the aftermath of Baltimore’s
unrest,
President
Barack
Obama helped launch a foundation Monday to take up his campaign to help minority young
men by improving education,
training and job placement in
poor communities across the
country.
Speaking at Lehman College
in the Bronx with young men
who credited their mentors for
overcoming obstacles, Obama
praised their success in the face
of barriers.
“The future will be in good
hands as long as we are giving
them the love and the support
that they need,” Obama said.
The new organization, My
Brother’s Keeper Alliance, is an
outgrowth of Obama’s year-old
My Brother’s Keeper initiative,
which has focused on federal
government policies and grants
designed to increase access to
education and jobs.
While the effort predates the
tensions in Baltimore that
erupted after the death of
Freddie Gray while in police custody, the significance of the new
private-sector alliance has been
magnified by the spotlight riots
in the city placed on low-income
neighborhoods.
Over the past year, Obama
has been called on to respond to
what he last week referred to as
the “slow-rolling crisis” of police
relations with minority communities. The friction has been
highlighted by Gray’s death last
month and Michael Brown’s
death last summer in Ferguson,
Missouri. Gray died after sustaining a spinal cord injury
while in the custody of Baltimore
police. Six police officers were
charged last week in connection
with his death.
With its high-profile names
and ambitious focus, the
alliance is a possible building
block for Obama’s post-presidential pursuits. With less than
two years left in Obama’s presidency, the new institution would
likely sustain its work well after
he leaves the White House. But
White House spokesman Josh
Earnest said the new alliance
wouldn’t necessarily be the vehicle for what Obama chooses to
do.
Earnest said decisions about
who could give to the group and
the reporting of donations would
be made by the board of directors. He was responding to a
question about whether the
group’s financing might spark
some of the same controversies
surrounding Bill and Hillary
Clinton’s family foundation.
“The White House will not be
involved in determining what
their fundraising policies should
be,” Earnest said. He said that
the board would be “well aware
of the priorities the president
has placed on transparency.”
Earnest said the group would
follow a familiar model of businesses supporting some of the
president’s other priorities, noting as an example Michelle
Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative
to fight childhood obesity.
The new alliance will be led by
Joe Echevarria, the former chief
executive of Deloitte, the giant
accounting and consulting firm.
The alliance already has
obtained financial and in-kind
commitments of more than $80
million from such companies as
American Express, Deloittte,
Discovery Networks, Fox News
parent company News Corp.,
BET, Sprint and PepsiCo, the

BURNS (AP) — The Tennessee
Supreme Court has ruled that a
former Burns police officer was
fired as retaliation for complaining
about his chief's illegal activity.
According to court records,
Larry Williams ticketed the stepson of then-Chief Jerry Sumerour
for speeding and reckless driving
in March 2008. The chief later
ordered Williams to change the
citations to warnings.
Williams complained to the
mayor and was fired several days
later.
Chief Sumerour said Williams
was fired for going outside the
chain of command with his complaint. A trial court judge initially
agreed and ruled in favor of the
city. But an appeals court overturned that ruling and on Monday
the state Supreme Court concurred.
The court found that Williams'
firing was retaliatory and the
chief's insubordination charge
was a mere pretext.
Man sentenced to 22 years in 1997
killing of his wife
CHATTANOOGA (AP) — A 16year-old
cold
case
in
Chattanooga is closed and a man
will serve 22 years in prison after
being convicted of murdering his
wife in 1997.
Multiple news sources report
Adolphus Hollingsworth was sentenced by a Hamilton County
judge Monday in the death of
Vicky
Carr
Hollingsworth.
Adolphus Hollingsworth was
found guilty of second-degree
murder in January.
Prosecutors
said
in
Hollingsworth's trial in January
he stabbed his wife in the neck as
she took him to work. Her body
was found in East Chattanooga
in 1999, wrapped in plastic and
buried under tires.
The case was reopened in 2013
with the help of the television
show “Cold Justice.” The show
paid for additional DNA testing
and a match was found for Vicki
Carr Hollingsworth's blood. Police
then
arrested
Adolphus
Hollingsworth.

Troopers to be more visible
during Cinco de Mayo holiday
NASHVILLE
(AP) — The
Tennessee Highway Patrol will
increase enforcement during the
Cinco de Mayo holiday.
THP Col. Tracy Trott says there
will be more patrols and specialized traffic safety enforcement
beginning at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday
and concluding at midnight
Wednesday.
THP personnel will hold sobriety and seat belt checkpoints and
conduct statewide saturation
patrols throughout the 48-hour
holiday period.
As of May 1, officials say 266
motorists have been killed on
Tennessee roadways this calendar
year. That is six fewer traffic fatalities than this same time last year.
A list of all scheduled THP
checkpoints can be found online

Tennessee lawmakers
reimburse state for trips
NASHVILLE (AP) — Two lawmakers have reimbursed the state
for trips they took to legislative
conferences.
WTVF-TV
reported
that
Murfreesboro Sen. Bill Ketron and
Knoxville Rep. Ryan Haynes repaid
the money after finding out that
the trips were charged to both taxpayers and their campaigns. The
station reports Ketron reimbursed
the state $17,553 for six trips in
the last six years and Haynes reimbursed the state $4,775 for three
trips in the last four years.
Ketron and Haynes both told the
station that they were unaware
that the trips had been doublebilled and wrote a check to cover
the expenses as soon as they found
out about it.
“I was horrified when I received
your email,” Ketron told WTVF.
“My legislative assistant was filling out the form for reimbursement from the state and my treasurer was just making the payments coming from my credit card
statement,” he said, and they
weren't communicating with each
other.
He said it was an oversight and
he should have been “more diligent” in keeping tabs on how the
expenses were paid.
Haynes had similar reaction to
finding out that his trips were
paid for out of two accounts.
“The instant I found about it in
early March I went to the state
and said 'Hey, I've got to pay this
back, This was an error,'” he said.
Authorities find missing

CHURCH HILL (AP) — A homeless man who was supposed to be
housesitting for his cousin is
accused of stealing and crashing
his cousin's car.
The Kingsport Times News
reports 33-year-old Travis Lynn
Stidham was arrested Sunday
and sent to Hawkins County Jail.
Stidham was asked to watch his
cousin's residence Friday and feed
the dogs while his cousin and
cousin's wife went out of town.
Police say the couple returned
Sunday afternoon with their car
and $150 missing.
A Hawkins County Sheriff's

Reforming Baltimore police will be expensive, costly
BALTIMORE (AP) — Months
before Freddie Gray died of the
broken neck he suffered during
what Baltimore’s top prosecutor
called an illegal arrest, the city’s
mayor and police commissioner
said the department needed
reform and asked the Justice
Department for help reviewing
officer misconduct.
Now that Gray is buried, six
officers are charged in his death
and an uneasy calm has
returned to the streets, critics
are wondering whether city leaders are capable of implementing
the change the city needs without the direct, intensive oversight that comes with a fullfledged civil rights investigation
resulting in a federal consent
decree.
Democratic Mayor Stephanie
Rawlings-Blake has already
pushed back against this possibility, saying it would deprive
Baltimore’s leaders from having
a say in fighting crime in one of
the nation’s most violent major
cities, with more than 200 homicides a year.
“Nobody
wants
the
Department of Justice to come
and take over our city,” she said
last week.
Baltimore’s leaders should
welcome federal oversight,
because it’s doubtful any police
department can fix itself from
within, said Erwin Chemerinsky,
the dean of the University of
California-Irvine School of Law.
Consent decrees have been
mostly effective since Congress
responded to the Rodney King
beating in Los Angeles by granting the Justice Department the
power in 1994 to sue police
departments for civil rights violations. Los Angeles went through
it, and proved that it works, said
Chemerinsky, who has studied
reform efforts there.
“I think that there is less likelihood of excessive force today,
less racist policing today in Los
Angeles, than prior to the consent decree,” he said.
The Justice Department has
negotiated settlements with 21
other police departments since
then; Seattle and New Orleans
are currently under consent
decrees, and Cleveland’s police
department is negotiating one.
Justice officials are also nego-
tiating with the department in
Ferguson, Missouri, where an
officer’s shooting of 18-year-old
Michael Brown sparked a national debate about use of force by
police against blacks. The federal
civil rights investigation in
Ferguson found patterns of
racial bias and discriminatory
law enforcement tactics.
A consent decree is a form of
negotiated settlement with the
Justice Department that averts a
civil-rights
lawsuit.
Police
departments agree to implement
a series of reforms under the
watch of an independent monitor.
The Justice Department
already announced a separate
federal probe of Gray’s death.
And a broad civil rights investi-
gation would not begin unless
federal authorities conclude the
ongoing voluntary review is
insufficient.
Federal consent decrees also
create new challenges. It can
take more than a decade for
police departments to satisfy
their requirements, and meanwhile, expenses add up: It can
cost tens of millions of dollars to
retrain officers, hire new ones
and modify use-of-force policies.
“Cities don’t want to invest
their scarce resources in the
costly process of reforming a
police
department,”
said
Stephen Rushin, a visiting assistant professor of law at the
University of Illinois who is
working on a book about police
reform. “Typically, it takes away

N.H. The Obama Administration’s hotly debated plan to cut the amount of heat-trapping carbon dioxide
coming out of the nation’s power plants will save about 3,500 lives a year from also reducing other types
of pollutions, a new independent study concludes.
Study: Cutting carbon dioxide
saves 3,500 U.S. lives a year
WASHINGTON (AP) — The
Obama Administration's hotly
debated plan to reduce heattrapping carbon dioxide from the
nation's power plants will save
about 3,500 lives a year by cutting back on other types of pollution as well, a new independent
study concludes.
A study from Harvard and
Syracuse University calculates
the decline in heart attacks and
lung disease when soot and smog
are reduced ΓÇö an anticipated
byproduct of the president's proposed power plant rule, which
aims to fight global warming by
limiting carbon dioxide emissions.
Past studies have found that
between 20,000 and 30,000
Americans die each year because
of health problems from power
plant air pollution, study authors
and outside experts say. The
study was published Monday in
the peer-reviewed scientific journal Nature Climate Change.
The proposed EPA rule, which
is not yet finalized, is complex
and tailored to different states. It
aims to reduce carbon dioxide
emissions by 30 percent from
2005 levels by 2030. Study
authors said their research,
while not hewing to the Obama
plan exactly, is quite close and
comparable. The study also finds
about the same number of
deaths prevented by reducing
soot and smog that the administration claimed when the plan
was rolled out more than a year
ago.
Some in Congress have been
trying to block the regulation
from going into effect, calling the
plan a job-killer and an example
of government overreach.
The study finds that the rule
would eliminate an average of
3,500 deaths a year ΓÇö a range
of lives saved from 780 to 6,100
ΓÇö with more than 1,000 of the
lives saved in just four states
that get lots of pollution from
coal power plants: Pennsylvania,
Ohio, Texas and Illinois. The new
regulation would reduce hospi-
talizations by 1,000 a year and
heart attacks by 220 a year, the
study says.
Cleaning the air as part of
reducing carbon dioxide has
immediate and noticeable benefits, the authors said.
“There could be lives saved
associated with the way we
implement the policy,” said study
lead author Charles Driscoll, an
environmental engineering professor at Syracuse. “Why not kill
two birds with one stone if you
can?”
Lab studies on animals show
how soot and smog harm the
cardiovascular and respiratory
systems and epidemiological
studies link tens of thousands of
deaths each year to soot and
smog pollution, said study coauthor Joel Schwartz, a Harvard
environmental epidemiologist.
The study's authors examined
2,417 power plants and used
computer models to project and
track their emissions.
The study was praised by outside
academics,
the
Environmental Protection Agency
and environmental advocacy
groups. But officials in the energy industry called it costly and
flawed.
“This is more than just an academic exercise to the tens of millions of Americans who depend
on affordable, reliable electricity
to power their homes and places
of work every day,” said Laura
Sheehan, senior vice president
for the American Coalition for
Clean Coal Electricity. “For them,
this is about their livelihoods.
Coal provides nearly 40 percent
of the nation's electricity and its
use is becoming cleaner all the
time. And while these academics
are hypothesizing about unprovable consequences, what's
known is that families are struggling to pay their monthly bills
and companies are struggling to
stay in business — and any
increase in energy costs will
unnecessarily burden them.”
EPA, in a statement, said the
study confirms their earlier
Police: New Jersey man adds

Maywood Police Chief David
Pegg tells the Record newspaper

Pegg says the man was trying

every dollar spent complying with
the regulation, “Americans will
see up to $7 in health benefits.”

W.
Bush
Administration who are now outside academics ΓÇö George Gray
at George Washington University,
John D. Graham at Indiana
University and Howard Frumkin
at the University of Washington
ΓÇö praised the study to various
degrees.
“This analysis is both sound
and useful,” Gray, former EPA
science chief and now director of
risk science and public health,
wrote in an email. “The cool thing
is the question they ask: What
public health effects might occur
due to changes in air pollutants

WASHINGTON (AP) —The
Supreme Court said Monday it
will hear a dispute over a regulation that offers financial incentives to factories, retailers and
other large electricity users to
reduce their power consumption.
The justices agreed to review a
lower court ruling that struck
down
a
Federal
Energy
Regulatory Commission rule that
requires utilities to pay energy
consumers for lowering electricity use during times of peak
demand.
The approach, known as
demand response, has won praise
from environmental advocacy
groups that call it an effective tool
for saving energy, lowering the
cost of electricity and reducing air
pollution. But utilities have
opposed the regulation on
grounds that it is too generous.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for
the District of Columbia Circuit
ruled 2-1 last year that the rule
encroaches on state authority to
regulate the retail power market.
The appeals court said the rule
covers the retail market because
it involves retail customers and
their decision whether to purchase at retail.
The Obama administration
argues that the rule targets the
wholesale market. The government says the effect of the rule
on wholesale rates is more immediate and direct than any effect
on retail consumption.
FERC regulates the wholesale
energy market, while states regulate the retail market. FERC
Chairman Norman Bay said in a
statement he was pleased the
Supreme Court will consider the
case.
“The integration of demand
response is important to the
nation's competitive wholesale
electricity markets and reliable
electric service,” Bay said.
The regulation itself remains in
effect while the Supreme Court
decides whether it's valid.
Michael Panfil, an attorney for
the Environmental Defense
Fund, called the demand
response rule “a win-win for people and the environment.”

sought-after and best-known
designers and, while confidential in nature due to the brands
high profile status, it will more
than double the volume of manufacturing at the 175,000
square-foot Hardwick facility.
The company has invested
$800,000 in new equipment,
ranging from specialized sewing
machines to state-of-the-art
cutting technology with the goal
to increase production capacity
and quality, as well as create
more and better-paying jobs for
the community.
“This means not only more
jobs, but an overall increase in
wages for all factory employees,”
Bellusci said. “We told our
employees we wanted them to
have fun and make money.
We’re having fun and now we’re
going to make money. You’re
going to see a lot of excitement
here.”
He said employees have been
told from projections to expect
to make 20 percent more in this
calendar year and as much or
more next year.
Bellusci also noted the addition of a new, full-scale training
program which has now been
implemented.
Since the start of 2015, 40
new jobs have been created,
bringing the total number of
employees to 260 with an
expected 80 more by year’s end.
Plans are for another $1.2
million to be invested over the
next two years “to catapult
growth and rebuild the
Hardwick brand.”
Hardwick owner Allan Jones
said that effort is already underway with updated labeling and
product packaging.
“We are using a new selection
of the finest fabrics from Italy
and England, with each garment getting topped off with the
best buttons available,” Jones
said.
A new collection will launch
afternoon at the Museum Center
at Five Points.
He received the award from the
recipient of last year’s award,
Roger Pickett of MurMaid
Mattress.
The Chamber says staying
power, growth in number of
employees, increase in sales or
unit volume, innovativeness of
product or services offered,
response to adversity, and evidence of contribution by the nominee to aid community-oriented
projects form the basis for this
award.
Hicks was visibly moved during
the reading of the presentation as
he stood in the far rear corner of
the room simply as the caterer for
the occasion.
That changed to tears and a
group hug with his family — his
wife, Patsy, and children Hannah,
Madylin and Will.
“He started talking and I
thought, ‘I know that guy!’” he
said, describing hearing the award
read.
He admitted to being a “crybaby
and not ashamed of it” as he
wiped his eyes.
“Those of you who are smallbusiness owners and are the
owner, worker, runner, you
understand what this means to
build something,” Hicks said. “It
means something.”
He said there is every effort
made by he and his company “to
give back to this community as
much as we can.”
“We strive to do things a little bit
differently with things just on the
cusp of the cutting edge and not
enough to freak people out — just
enough to keep people coming
back to see what’s new,” he said.
Hicks thanked his family, saying, “Guys, I couldn’t do this without you — the support of my family.”
“I couldn’t do this without the
support of my family and the
grace of my God,” he said.
Hicks formed the company in

this fall with Hardwick having
secured more than 100 new
accounts over the past few
months including local stores
such as Yacoubian Tailors, The
Squire Shop, Bruce Baird and
Johnson’s Men’s Wear.
Hardwick will also start a
national radio campaign next
week and will continue to pursue opportunities with national
media outlets such as NBC
Sports Group.
Jones repeated his belief in
the employees of Hardwick are
what will put the company back
on top.
“They are the biggest asset
the company has,” Jones said.
“They have the experience of
being in the business for years
and years.”
“This is a heavy lift to save
this company,” Jones said. “It is
so competitive around the word.
But the biggest asset that was
not on the balance sheet was
the skilled staff. We can’t find
these sewers anymore. So we
believe we can take this staff,
with additional training, and by
September turn this company
around.
He also gave credit to
Cleveland Utilities for its help
and noted TVA has offered
incentives for which Hardwick
has qualified.
Tennessee Economic and
Community
Development
Commissioner Randy Boyd was
on hand for the announcement
Monday,
and
praised
Hardwick’s work.
“This is an incredible story,”
Boyd said. “Thank you for saving this company and I’m sure
it’s going to have a great future.”
The commissioner also took a
tour of the facility and greeted
Hardwick employees while
watching them do their jobs.
2001 as basically a one-man operation.
“Impressions has grown from
being a one-man show to having
three full-time employees and five
part-time employees. The company has seen substantial growth
over the years. From 2009 to 2013
alone, sales volume increased 55
percent,” Pickett said in the presentation.
In 2009, Impressions began to
focus on brides and their wedding
day and has since become a leading wedding caterer in the
Cleveland area.
In addition to finding new clientele, Hicks also diversified and
began purchasing such large
items as banquet chairs, linens
and tables that he normally would
have outsourced to other vendors.
By owning this inventory, Hicks
and Impressions became a fullservice caterer.
“The most significant challenge
for the young caterer was learning
how to run a business,” Pickett
said. “His training and passion lay
in the culinary arts. Through the
evolution of his business, however, he was pushed beyond creating
exceptional food for his clients to
enjoy, to learning to become a
successful business owner.”
Through the years, he has
donated time and services to the
Relay for Life, The Caring Place,
The Community Kitchen at New
Life Bible College, YoungLife of
Bradley County, The Salvation
Army, New Hope Pregnancy Care
Center, Chair-ries Jubilee, and
Palate to Palette (benefitting the
Craniofacial Foundation of
America).
Hicks has built several sets for
the Cleveland High School
Renaissance show choir and CHS
Drama Department in recent
years. He served several years on
the Family and Consumer
Sciences Board at Cleveland
Middle School. He is a member of
the advisory board for the new
Culinary Arts Department at
Cleveland High School.
“A devoted family man, Hicks
and his family have been members of Candies Creek Baptist
Church since 1999. He has
served there in the roles of deacon, Sunday school teacher, and
Sunday school administrator,”
Pickett said. “He currently serves
as a committee member for
YoungLife, a local nondenominational youth ministry.”
The luncheon was keynoted by
Tennessee Commissioner of
Economic
and
Community
Development Randy Boyd.
He said the thing he has
learned in business is to listen to
the customers — a priority he has
given himself in his new position.
“Every time a customer tells you
what they want and you listen, it
turns out to be successful,” Boyd
said.
He said those who are running
businesses “have a far better idea
of what they need than those of us
in Nashville.”
“We are going to be great listeners and get out and hear what you
have to say,” Boyd said, adding the
state had brought in more than
22,000 job commitments last year.
“That’s a new record for our
state,” he said. “We won ‘State of
the Year’ for the last two years in a
row. Tennessee is doing this well.”
He said one of the first things
he learned was the $50 million
budget for his department.
“By comparison, New York State
spends $100 million just to advertise on television their incentive
program,” Boyd said. “When it
comes to competing with other
states battling for new jobs, it’s
going to be hard for us to outspend. We have to be smarter
than they are.”
He said that can be done by
being better partners with business and supporting entrepreneurship.
Boyd also said he wants to focus
on rural development and education/workforce development.
Wheel tax
From Page 1
Based on that logic, we should have a
state income tax,” Rawls said.
Rawls said within the discussion of
supporting children is the potential of
“saddling them with debt.”
“You supposedly improve the educational aspect by building a new building.
I’d be interested in discussing with anyone that a building makes for a better
education,” he said.
Rawls repeated his contention a new
Lake Forest School has not been a priority of the school system until the last year
and a half.
“We’re not kicking a can down the road.
We’re making the best decision for the
taxpayers,” he said.
He said if the proposed wheel tax was
$15, “you’d have a better argument.”
Commissioner Howard Thompson said
if there was a need to buy another piece
of property for the school, the cost would
escalate.
“I know we can’t afford that, and I don’t
want to vote for any improvements on the
property where the school is now because
of the poor ground, but if they move it up
the hill it would be acceptable,”
Thompson said. “But, not with a wheel
tax.”
Commissioner Bill Winters noted the
tax would bring significant revenue, but
suggested it could be used to pay off some
of the county’s current debt.
“The funds above Lake Forest could go
to debt service, but also projects we need
to work on that we continue to say ‘no’
to,” Winters said.
He mentioned the need for technology
upgrades for county services and schools,
two ambulances, schools which need two
extra classrooms and schools not secured
because of multiple buildings.
“That’s what these funds could be used
for, and we have an opportunity here to
not only take care of Lake Forest, but
take care of short-term items we would
pay for one time,” Winters said. “We can
do this with these funds, or other funds
we’ll have to look at later.”
Winters also took exception to Rawls’
statement about buildings and education.
“If you want to have a joyous family, it
doesn’t take a beautiful home; but, it
takes a home that’s efficient and keeps
the roof repaired enough the family can
stay in the house,” Winters said. “We
need to take care of the school and we
need to take care of our responsibilities.”
Vice-Chairman Jeff Yarber called it “a
tough predicament.”
Yarber said he acknowledged the safety
needs at Lake Forest.
“I don’t agree Lake Forest has eight to
10 years of use left,” Yarber said. “I
believe any building has more years of
good use if you force it to. The question is
do you want to put your children there?”
On the issue of the wheel tax, Yarber
called it “a pixie dust dream.”
“There’s a petition right now waiting to
send this wheel tax to a referendum,”
Yarber said. “[In 2012] we put every stipulation we could think of. We said it could
not be raised without a referendum. We
said in 20 years it would come back to revote on it. We said the money had to be
designated. We lost by almost 70 percent.
The people spoke loud and clear.”
Commissioner Milan Blake also referenced Rawls commenting on the amount
the tax would generate.
“We could pay the bond twice as fast
and save interest,” Blake said. “We could
issue a 10-year bond and save about $10
million.”
He said the issue was “a tough one.”
“But, I have settled in my mind there is
a need there. The previous Commission
did as well, because they put it in the
budget,” Blake said. “We’re not kicking
the can down the road, it’s just we let
some years come and go and we made
other obligations.
“I do not want to raise taxes of any
kind, but I certainly don’t want to turn
my back on the kids at Lake Forest,” he
said. “My kids don’t go there, but that
doesn’t mean a hill of beans to me. There
are kids that do go there.”
He said many had asked him about
monies derived from Wacker.
Blake said the previous Commission
had voted to spend the first three years of
that money toward the Veterans Home
and the new industrial park.
“They spent the first three years of the
Wacker money. That’s a fact,” Blake said.
He said the Finance committee has
essentially been drained of ideas.
“We started with selling property on
Minnis Road and other pieces of property.
We had the hotel/motel tax. We were disappointed with our Nashville delegation,”
Blake said. “The fact is we haven’t kicked
the can. It is coming up.”
He said the previous Commission told
the parents of Lake Forest, “Let’s wait.
The higher priorities are the industrial
park and the Veterans Home.
“Trust me. You won’t find one person
up here who wants to cancel the Veterans
Home,” Blake said. “When you tell Lake
Forest parents to wait until 2017, they’ll
say, ‘That’s what they always tell us. We
have to wait.’ And, they’re right.
“I guarantee that between now and
when it gets to the budget process in
2016, we’re going to have people standing
right here asking us for funds,” he said.
“We need to do something quickly.”
Blake agreed with Yarber the wheel tax
would not pass referendum muster.
“There lies the problem for me. Passing
a wheel tax [to hold a referendum] knowing it won’t pass, it’s a waste of time and
money,” Blake said. “I’m not interested in
wasting one penny knowing it’s going to
fail. We’ve got other opportunities we can
talk about in the future.”
Commissioner Mark Hall, who serves
as chairman of the Education committee,
said he was well aware of he needs of the
school.
“But also, as commissioner of the 7th
District, I’ve got the largest percentage of
senior citizens — many of which are on a
fixed income,” Hall said.
Hall made a substitute motion the resolution be sent back to Finance to add an
exemption for citizens age 65 and older,
and that once the school is paid for in full
the tax be abolished.
The motion was seconded by Yarber.
Commissioner Terry Caywood recalled
his experience as principal of Prospect
School when he said six years passed as
he repeatedly asked for “help with an
antiquated building.”
“You can say it wasn’t a priority
before, but it did not change the damage
that it did to the conditions the children
and the teachers had to work under,”
Caywood said. “I have strong feelings
about that.”
He said he knows of the expense the
county has borne at Lake Forest,
“because of all kinds of problems.”
“If those problems did not exist, to have
a school where you have to go to another
building to go to the restroom is absolutely ridiculous,” Caywood said.
He noted the school’s utility bill was as
much as several schools at one time.
“When you remedy those problems
you not only save money, you get a condition that is an environment that is
more conducive to good teaching,”
Caywood said.
“I know we have to come up with some
kind of funding,” he said. “Somewhere,
some kind of tax revenue has got to be
generated.”
Caywood noted all of the townhouses
that have been built near Paul Huff
Parkway.
“I say you get a bigger clientele to help
pay the bills with the wheel tax than you
do with the property tax,” he said. “That
may not convince voters to vote for it, but
it spreads it out.”
He agreed with Hall’s idea of exempting
senior citizens.
“I just want the voters to hear that in
my last four years as county commissioner, I want to make certain this is corrected. I have to do what I think is right,”
Caywood said.
Commissioner Thomas Crye said he
stood by his statement the children now
at Lake Forest “would in all likelihood will
be in Bradley Central before we do anything at Lake Forest.”
“We’re spinning our wheels and wasting our time on a wheel tax,” Crye said.
He noted a referendum would cost
$4,000 to $5,000.
“There may be only one option we now
have — thanks to our two state senators
who dropped their support of the
hotel/motel tax which wouldn’t have cost
the taxpayers anything,” Crye said. “I’ve
said my peace.”
Blake said the burden needs to be on
the Commission to say why there needs
to be a tax increase.
“Maybe we haven’t done that,” he said.
“It’s our burden to educate why there
needs to be tax increase for Lake Forest.
That’s the number one thing I’ve heard.”
Seeing the wheel tax resolution was
going to fail, Hall pulled his substitute
motion from the table with the resolution
being defeated.

Cleveland Daily Banner—Tuesday, May 5, 2015—7
Texas gunman was former target of FBI terror probe
WASHINGTON (AP) — The target of a federal terror investigation
was one of two suspects in a
shooting at a Texas cartoon contest featuring images of the
Muslim Prophet Muhammad, and
the Islamic State group on
Tuesday claimed responsibility for
the attack.
An audio statement on the
extremist group’s Al Bayan radio
station said “two soldiers of the
caliphate” carried out Sunday’s
attack in the Dallas suburb of
Garland. It did not provide details
and it was unclear whether the
group was opportunistically
claiming the attack as its own.
It was the first time that IS,
which frequently calls for attacks
against the West, had claimed
responsibility for one in the
United States.
The gunmen, whom federal officials identified as Elton Simpson
and Nadir Soofi, wounded a security officer before they were shot
and killed at the scene. The officials spoke on condition of
anonymity because they were not
authorized to discuss the investigation by name.
The deliberately provocative
cartoon contest had been expected to draw outrage from the
Muslim community. According to
mainstream Islamic tradition, any
physical depiction of the Prophet
Muhammad — even a respectful
one — is considered blasphemous, and drawings similar to
those featured at the Texas event
have sparked violence around the
world.
Simpson and Soofi were wearing body armor, and one shot the
security officer in the leg. Garland
police spokesman Joe Harn said
Monday that a single Garland
police officer subdued the two
gunmen but that after his initial
shots, SWAT officers nearby also
fired at the two men. Harn said
police don’t know who fired the
lethal shots.
The security officer was treated
at a hospital and released.
Homeland Security Secretary
Tsarnaev cries,
wipes eyes as
aunt takes stand
BOSTON (AP) — For the first
time in court, Boston Marathon
bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
dropped his blank, impassive
demeanor and cried as his sobbing
aunt briefly took the stand
Monday in his federal death penalty trial.
Tsarnaev, 21,
wiped
tears
from his eyes
quickly and fidgeted in his
chair as his
mother’s sister
sobbed uncontrollably. He
Tsarnaev­
had maintained
a disinterested expression since
his trial began in January.
The aunt, Patimat Suleimanova,
cried as she sat down about 10 feet
from Tsarnaev. The tears began
falling before she began to testify,
and she was only able to answer
questions about her name, her
year of birth and where she was
born.
After a few minutes, Judge
George O’Toole Jr. suggested that
the defense call a different witness
so she could compose herself. As
she left the witness stand,
Tsarnaev used a tissue to wipe his
eyes and nose.
Five relatives — three cousins
and two aunts — took the stand,
though it was unclear if the aunt
who broke down would be allowed
to complete her testimony. As
Tsarnaev was led out of the courtroom before the lunch recess, he
blew a kiss at family members.
Tsarnaev was convicted last
month of 30 federal charges in the
bombings, including 17 that carry
the possibility of the death penalty.
He moved to the U.S. with his family in 2002 and committed the
bombings when he was 19.
Prosecutors say Tsarnaev was
an equal partner in the bombings
with his radicalized older brother,
Tamerlan, and have urged the jury
to sentence him to death.
Tsarnaev’s
lawyers
say
Tamerlan, 26, was the mastermind of the attack and lured his
brother into his plan. Tamerlan
died days after the bombings following a shootout with police.
A cousin testified Monday that
Dzhokhar was a kind and warm
child, so gentle that he once cried
while watching “The Lion King.”
“I think that his kindness made
everybody around him kind,”
Raisat Suleimanova said through
a Russian translator.
Assistant U.S. Attorney William
Weinreb pounced, asking her if she
believes a deadly attack on innocent civilians can be considered
kind. Tsarnaev’s lawyer objected,
and Suleimanova was not allowed
to answer the question.

InvestIgAtors box uP an assault weapon outside the Curtis Culwell Center, Monday in Garland,
Texas. Two men opened fire with assault weapons on police Sunday night who were guarding a provocative contest for Prophet Muhammed cartoons. A police officer returned fire killing both men.
Jeh Johnson said in a statement
that authorities were investigating the men’s motives and all circumstances surrounding the
attack.
Simpson, of Phoenix, was
arrested in 2010 after a fouryear-long terror investigation.
But despite an investigation that
involved more than 1,500 hours
of recorded conversations,
including Simpson’s discussions
about fighting nonbelievers for
Allah and plans to link up with
“brothers” in Somalia, the government prosecuted him on only
one minor charge — lying to a
federal agent. He faced three
years of probation and $600 in
fines and court fees.
Simpson, described as quiet
and devout, had been on the
radar of law enforcement
because of his social media presence, but authorities did not
have an indication he was plotting an attack, said one federal
official familiar with the investigation.
In a statement released late
Monday by Phoenix law firm
Osborn Maledon, Simpson’s family said it is “struggling to understand” how the incident happened.
“We are sure many people in
this country are curious to know
if we had any idea of Elton’s
plans,” the statement says. “To
that we say, without question, we
did not.”
The statement also says the
family is “heartbroken and in a
state of deep shock” and sends
prayers to everyone affected by
this “act of senseless violence.”
Simpson had worshipped at
the Islamic Community Center of
Phoenix for about a decade, but
he quit showing up over the past
two or three months, the president of the mosque told The
Associated Press.
A convert to Islam, Simpson
first attracted the FBI’s attention
in 2006 because of his ties to a
former U.S. Navy sailor who had
been arrested in Phoenix and was
ultimately convicted of terrorismrelated charges, according to
court records.
In the fall of that year, the FBI
asked one of its informants,
Dabla Deng, a Sudanese immigrant, to befriend Simpson and
ask for advice about Islam.
Over the next few years, Deng
would tape his conversations
with Simpson with a hidden
recording device accumulating
more than 1,500 hours of conversations, according to court
records.
“I’m telling you, man, we can
make it to the battlefield,”
Simpson is recorded saying on
May 29, 2009. “It’s time to roll.”
In court, prosecutors presented only 17 minutes and 31 seconds during Simpson’s trial,
according to court documents.

Happy Birthday: Stay alert and
take care of your responsibilities
regardless of what's going on around
By Ned Classics
By Conrad Day
you this year. Your ability to adapt to
whatever changes you face will be
what helps you come out on top. Use
what you have and avoid waste.
Sticking to a budget will lead to less
worry and greater efficiency. Your numbers are 9, 15, 23, 27, 34, 37, 45.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Finish
what you start. Once you have cleared
your to-do list, you will be ready to
reach new goals. An unexpected
opportunity will surface. Embrace
change and discuss personal plans
with someone you love.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take
pride in the way you handle money
and emotional matters. Build a solid
base that will allow you to gain security
and a higher standard of living. Only
you can make your dreams come true.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Added
responsibilities will try your patience.
Understanding and compassion will be
required when dealing with others.
Don't let your emotional deception
creep into an important decision you
need to make. Love is in the stars, but
honesty must be honored.
CANCER (June 21-July 22):
Examine your skills, what you have to
offer and how you can be more diverse
in the way you present yourself.
Update your resume or consider the
best ways to turn what you enjoy doing
most into a lucrative endeavor.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get serious
and make a move. Procrastination will
not lead to results. A change of pace,
environment and people will motivate
you to show off your best qualities and
aim to reach a higher standard of living. Romance is on the rise.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Avoid
disputes that can affect your position
or your personal life. If you criticize others, prepare to face complaints. It's in
your best interest to view life and situations from a positive, not a negative,
point of view.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do what
needs to be done without complaint.
Get involved in helping others or volunteering for a cause you care about.
Your input will be well-received and
lead to a new opportunity. Take care of
family responsibilities and you'll be
rewarded.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Size
up your situation and consider your
options. If you aren't happy with what's
going on in your personal or professional life, make a move. It's up to you
to be responsible for your happiness
and success. Don't rely on others.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Don't let personal matters get you
down. Face any dilemma that comes
your way honestly and without hesitation. Avoiding sensitive issues will
result in turmoil you can do without.
Face your problems head-on.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
Make your home more comfortable,
but stay within your means. Don't be
tempted by fancy luxuries you don't
need. A convenient and cozy place will
lead to contentment and less stress.
Do the work yourself if it will save
money.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You
will feel good about yourself if you do
things for others. Love and romance
are on the rise, and personal discussions can bring you closer to the people you care about most. A professional opportunity is apparent. Update and
send out your resume.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep
a close watch over what's transpiring
around you, but don't bring attention to
what you are doing. Staying in the
background will help you further your
own interests. Don't let an emotional
issue throw you off track.
Birthday Baby: You are an instigator. You are enthusiastic, caring and
sympathetic.

NCIS
Though CSI has a cyber unit that has fueled its own series, NCIS also is deeply
involved in online crime in the new episode
“The Lost Boys.” A case that Gibbs (Mark
Harmon) and his team are working goes international with the pursuit of terrorists who

iZombie
The range of topics covered by a murdered
radio talk-show personality makes Liv (Rose
McIver) a better-informed individual very
quickly in the new episode “Dead Air.” What
she suddenly knows worries Clive (Malcolm
Goodwin), especially when she uses it in a
personal way with him. Ravi’s (Rahul Kohli)
new romance could pose problems for Liv.
Major (Robert Buckley) gets an assist from
Peyton (guest star Aly Michalka). David Anders also stars.
9 p.m. on (WDSI)
New Girl
The fact that Damon Wayans Jr. is leaving
the show’s cast cues the departure of his
character Coach in the fourth-season finale,
“Clean Break.” The imminent exit elicits
interesting reactions from other members
of the gang, with Schmidt (Max Greenfield)
deciding to do a massive cleanout of his
own belongings — and Jess and Nick
(Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson) pondering whether there’s still something romantic
between them. Lamorne Morris also stars.
9 p.m. on (DISC)
Deadliest Catch
With Super-Typhoon Nuri closing in, the
captains are forced to make some hard
choices if they’re going to find a way to
save their seasons in the new episode
“Super Typhoon Part 1.” While the Northwestern charges boldly into the approaching storm, the Cape Caution retreats to the
relative safety of land and the Wizard gets
a replacement deckhand delivered while the
boat is at sea.
10:01 p.m. on (WTVC)
Forever
The series’ first-season finale, “The Last
Death of Henry Morgan,” finds Jo (Alana
De La Garza) caught between Henry (Ioan
Gruffudd) and his longtime nemesis Adam
(guest star Burn Gorman) — and in the
case of this show, we mean a really, really
long time. The enemies’ latest showdown is
prompted by the disappearance of the dagger that caused Adam’s first death, as well
as the demise of Julius Caesar. John Noble
(“Sleepy Hollow”) also guest stars.

Budget
Rymer
From Page 1
From Page 1
said he had concerns because
there were building improvements
that needed to be made.
He asked if a class with low
attendance could be cut to fund
the new instructor.
Supervisor of secondary education Dan Glasscock said there
were not any he knew of at this
time. He said anytime there is an
elective program students have
lost interest in, it is eliminated.
“This is a great program. It’s
growing, but we can’t keep
expanding everything. The parents are hounding me about the
parking lot at Bradley. That thing
is not getting any better and it is
going to be a big bill one day,”
Turner said. “We have cut capital
outlay by huge percentages to balance this budget.”
Humberd and newly hired chief
finance office Laura Bauer presented the $69.6 million budget
proposal to the Bradley County
Board of Education during a work
session Monday night.
“There is a tremendous desire I
think on the part of our kids and
our parents of Bradley County to
take advantage of the extended
contracts that we have, programs
of remediation, programs of
enrichment,” Humberd said.
These contracts pay teachers
who stay after school to offer specialized instruction and programs. Humberd said these
teachers had been told the contracts were for 11 months, yet the
pay for the 11th month had a lag
of up to a year.
Funding the extended contracts
accounts for $87,518 in the budget proposal.
Originally, Humberd and Bauer
thought the math coordinator
position was not in the budget.
Upon further review the salary
was found.
“However, there was the desire
to put the 11 months on there
that is how she was originally
hired,” Humberd said of the
position.
Funding this priority accounts
for $12,610 in the budget. This
makes the contract 11 months
and pays the required Social
Security and other requirements.
The JROTC position would be
partially funded by the U.S. Army.
“They (BCHS JROTC) are at the
cusp of developing that program
up to the next step with increased
enrollment,” Humberd said.
Bauer said the Army pays
about half of the salary for each of
the JROTC instructor positions.
Funding this priority would cost
$70,518, with $30,000 of this
coming from the Army.
JROTC instructor and Army Lt.
Col. Chris Ingle said the program
has turned students away
because of the limited spots available with two instructors.
“The reason we got authorization to receive a third instructor
from the Army is because a year
and a half ago we had 175 students in one semester,” Ingle said.
“So I cut it down to about 150 …
which is where I’ve kept it ever
since then.”
Ingle said the offer stands until
June 1. If the new instructor has
not been hired by then, the Army
will withdraw its offer.
“If you know anything about the
military, it’s if they authorize you
something and you don’t take it,
you will never get that opportunity
again,” Ingle said.
JROTC meets during class time
and then has special teams, such
as the rifle team, that train and
compete after school.
“I think this is one of those
things it is going to cost a little bit,
but the feds are stepping up and
helping us, and we need to take
the chance,” board member
Rodney Dillard said. “Are we going
to be a progressive outfit or a
regressive outfit?”
Member Amanda Lee spoke in
favor of funding the additional
instructor because the program
helps keep students “on the
straight and narrow. ”
The board also discussed positions it would like to see in the
budget.
School board member Dianna
Calfee said there is an employee at
Walker Valley High School who
has the responsibilities of an
assistant principal, but is only
receiving teacher pay.
“If you are serving in that
capacity, then it is my opinion
that you should receive equal
pay,” Calfee said. “And the cost for
doing that is $13,000.”
WVHS Principal Danny Coggin
said the person began serving as
an assistant principal when the
school moved to the academy
model. He said he had requested
in the past to have the position
funded but it had never been
approved in the final budget.
“If we need to do it for Walker
Valley, we need to do it for
Bradley,” board member Chris
Turner said, pointing out that a
similar situation existed at that
high school as well.
At BCHS, a special education
coordinator is serving as an assistant principal and not receiving
the salary and benefits of the
other assistant principals.
“Both schools have been innovative in trying to work within the
staffing that they have,”
Glasscock said.
The proposed budget has
$26,630 allocated for teacher
salaries, funding 529 positions.
The school board will vote on
the budget proposal today at its
5:30 p.m. meeting at the Bradley
County Schools central office on
South Lee Highway.
The board is also expected to
choose three architectural firms
as it gets closer to choosing an
architect for the Lake Forest
Middle School rebuild. The three
architects would then be asked to
present additional information
before a final selection is made.
complete a maintenance plan for
painting, carpeting, and reviving
the TLC building.
Sixth on the list is to pursue
options to maximize the use of the
upstairs facility.
The seventh and most extensive
recommendation is for additional
staff.
The staff needs special education support, but most of all a CTE
teacher to teach and coordinate
CTE requirements for graduation.
Another staff need is to provide a
physical education class for all
students.
The final recommendation is to
assign a designated supervisor for
CCS alternative education and
programs. Ringstaff said that final
step has already been taken care
of, with the appointment of Debbie
Torres to the position in the fall.
The report goes on to say the
purpose of the process of establishing a stand-alone-school is to
provide insight into how to
improve services provided to atrisk students in Cleveland City
Schools needing alternative education opportunities.
The ideas and opinions, he said,
are the result of the collaborative
voice of the three schools and system-level leaders.
McDaniel added, “It is clear that
all parties interviewed have a
desire to help students be successful. The TLC teachers and
staff indicated a clear desire and
commitment to helping their students. There is no apparent oppo-
sition to creating a stand-aloneschool within any of the groups
interviewed.”
Board members generally agreed
with McDaniel’s observations.
Board member Dawn Robinson
said, “Their teachers are very passionate about the school. They
don’t want to be a dumping
ground for behavioral problems.”
Dr. Murl Dirksen said there is a
perception of what the school is.
“It’s something we’ll have to
work through,” he said. “We need
to be very articulate, and every
student is facing a different challenge.”
In continuing his praise of the
plan, Ringstaff said, “We’re very
proud of this process. We feel this
will help us greatly, and I think it’s
time to make TLC a stand-aloneschool.”
Peggy Pesterfield said, “Some
kids function better in a small
environment,” recognizing that
TLC currently has only about 45
students.
TLC Principal Barbara Ector
said she has been getting calls
from interested parents, since stories about TLC have been appearing in the Banner.
Ringstaff acknowledged Torres’
position is new, noting “It’s
unchartered waters.”
In explaining Torres’ duties,
Ringstaff said, “We need a plan for
each student who comes to TLC.
This is an alternative way for
some students to get to the finish
line (to graduate).”

involved at all three schools,” said
Cleveland Director of Schools Dr.
Martin Ringstaff.
“He modeled this for what we
need (at TLC), not as a copy of
Bradley County’s Goal Academy,”
the director continued.
McDaniel was instrumental in
the creation and operation of Goal
Academy while he was the county
director.
“We’re ready to jump right into
this,” Ringstaff added.
The plan submitted by
McDaniel, and approved by the
city board, makes eight recommendations.
The first recommendation is to
create a “stand-alone-school” for
graduating students. He said all
groups interviewed agree that
such a school for graduating students, over age and behind in
credits, would benefit the students, the schools, and the school
system.
He added that representatives
should be included from all three
schools to address the concerns of
TLC as the plan is developed.
A second recommendation is to
create a new name for the alternative school as it becomes independent.
The third recommendation is to
develop additional opportunities
for students to pursue “credit
recovery” at Cleveland High.
A fourth suggestion is to utilize
space at TLC to create additional
room for students.
The fifth recommendation is to

Rymer was a graduate of
McCallie School in Chattanooga,
Davidson College and Emory
University.
He and his father began the
Robert and Hoyle Rymer
Foundation to provide nursing
scholarships to Cleveland State
and Chattanooga State colleges.
With assistance from Lee
University President Dr. Paul
Conn, the foundation partnered
with the university in 1990 to
establish the Rymer Scholars
Program. The program attempts
to influence the best and brightest high school students to continue their education in Bradley
County.
The scholarship program has
grown from two recipients to
more than 200 over 24 years.
Rymer was a parishioner at St.
Luke’s Episcopal Church, until
joining St. Barnabas Episcopal
Church after the family’s move to
DeLand, Fla. Since then, the
Florida church and its school
have been the focus of his philanthropy.
He also served as the president
of the Family Enterprise Center
at Stetson University in DeLand.
Rymer was a Tennessee
Republican Statesman for 25
years. He was awarded a Bronze
Star during his service as a U.S.
Army lieutenant in Vietnam, and
earned a Meritorious Service
Award for service at the
Pentagon.
He also worked for the U.S.
Department of Health, Education
and Welfare before his career of
entrepreneurship and industry.
Rymer is survived by his wife,
the former Sharon Lynn Spence,
who grew up in Sevierville. He
has two sons, John Hoyle Rymer
and Robert Atchley Rymer. A
third son, Charlie Oates Rymer,
died in 2004.
He is also survived by a sister,
Malinder Rymer Grosz, of Ocala,
Fla., and brother, Robert Rymer,
of Key West.
The family will receive visitors
from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, at
Ralph Buckner Funeral Home.
The Rev. Don Lyon, former rector at St. Barnabas and a close
family friend, will officiate the
funeral at 10 a.m. Friday, at St.
Luke’s.
Rymer previously stated he
wanted his pallbearer to be “the
men who carried me throughout
my career and my life. I want
them to carry me one last time.”
Pallbearers include Jerry Ward,
Bill Ward, Bill McClure, Roger
Hanger, Larry Brand, Nelson
Wooldridge, Tiger Jones, Judson
Vines and Bob Chaplin.
After a private burial in the
family plot at Hilcrest Cemetery,
friends are invited to a reception
from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Friday at
the Museum Center at Five
Points.
Woolen Mill
From Page 1
Dr. Ron Coleman purchased
the former factory complex in
1999.
Students worked with Coleman
to gather information about the
site and drew on the existing
architecture and surrounding
area for inspiration.
“This group is exciting to have
to come and share what could be.
Now, they are not old enough and
experienced enough to let financial considerations encumber
them, so they can let their mind
go, and that’s great,” Coleman
said. “I’ve really appreciated their
input … It’s been so much fun.”
He said an overarching theme
of the students’ work had been
community involvement. This was
accomplished through open meeting areas, connection to the
Cleveland/Bradley
County
Greenway and artist areas.
UT associate professor of architecture Trisha Stoth said the project gave students an opportunity
to focus on one particular building, while seeing what others were
doing. Keeping buildings connected to each other and the surrounding area was emphasized
throughout the designs.
Under the students’ designs,
the Woolen Mill branch of Mouse
Creek would be uncovered and
become a highlighted feature.
Coleman and the students envisioned a restaurant and possible
microbrewery in the former boiler
room.
“There are three large spaces in
this building, so we gave them
each a theme: dynamic space,
maker space and a support
space,” student Matt Ratcliff said.
“The dynamic space would be
more of the dining, public part of
the space and then the maker
space would be more where the
product is made, the brewery.”
The design creates levels within
the building to take advantage of
the height.
Student Hailey Zimmerman
said the levels would be made
with “light metal” to fit with the
existing architecture and reuse
items existing on the site. The
setup would allow those in the
dynamic space to see what is happening in the maker space.
“The idea is to have this space
tie in to what it was originally
used for, which is this making of
power for the entire complex to
make fabric, so we really wanted
to tie back into the whole idea of
making things,” Zimmerman
said. “We think this is a really
good opportunity to introduce
some new and unique programs
to the space to really bring a
vibrancy back to the city of
Cleveland.”
The flatiron building became
workshop and training space in
Michael Turko and Paige Jessop’s
design. Jessop said the design
focused on “making a place of creation.” This could include a wood
shop, areas for artists and a
media lab where community
members learn how to use technology such as 3-D printers.
Turko said the space was patterned after the Fab Lab in
Knoxville.
“While we were designing we
were inspired by the beautiful
landscape that surrounds this
building,” Turko said. “So we
spent some time using that to our
advantage in the entrances to the
building. You can enter either
level from the outside.”
The old railroad tresses in the
area would serve as the support
for the entrance to the second
level.
Student Billy Yang took on the
task of giving a steel storage building on the site a new purpose. To
connect people to a soccer field on
one side of the building, Yang cut
the building into two. One portion
would be used as a gymnasium.
The design also calls for a playground and pavilion to be built on
the site.
Students Christina Owens and
Jared Dotson developed a concept
for a new event space in the former dye building.
"We tried to keep a lot of the feel
that it has now, so keeping the
graffiti and the overhang and kind
of framing your view for the whole
south side," Owens said.
Dotson and Owens also proposed an outdoor garden, which
could serve as alternate location
for events and wedding photos. A
bride room was also added in the
design.
Owens explained that the
design divided the building into
the main event area and smaller
rooms to create a complex which
could be rented out in its entirety
or in sections.
Turning the southernmost
four-story building into a hotel
and apartments was explored by
several of the students.
Student Catherine Felton
focused on connecting the building to the larger Cleveland area
and providing flexible stay options
from short to long term. She also
proposed retail spaces in the
building that would provide
opportunities for visitors to rent
equipment for outdoor activities
such as kayaking.
Student Rijad Heldic incorporated commons areas to encourage those staying and living in the
building to socialize with one
another.
Fellow student Tucker Tingle
emphasized large rooms with
open floor plans, while student
Amy Stewart proposed a restaurant on the main floor with each of
the levels above having a different
style of living accommodation.
The designs used the Church
Street side of the property as the
street entrance while emphasizing
pedestrian traffic throughout the
site.
Coleman said moving forward
to accomplish such ideas as those
presented would take other partners. Selling or renting out buildings for redevelopment was discussed.
“I realize that I cannot do this
on my own,” Coleman said.
Coleman has followed the motto
“Transforming the old to serve the
new’” in his efforts to repurpose
the building.

to 6-year high of $51.4B
NATIONAL BRIEFS
Environmentalists sue over theme
park’s solar farm plans
JACKSON, N.J. (AP) —
Environmental groups have filed
suit over a New Jersey theme
park’s plans to cut nearly 19,000
trees to build a 90-acre solar
farm.
The groups claim Six Flags
Great Adventure in Jackson is
violating the state’s municipal
land use law. They say the plan
would be harmful to the Barnegat
Bay watershed.
The groups say the amusement
park’s parking lot and buildings
would be a more appropriate location for a solar farm.
In a statement, Janet Tauro of
Clean Water Action said it’s illogical to destroy the forest to combat
climate change.
Six Flags has said the facility
would reduce carbon dioxide
emissions by nearly 24 times
what the undisturbed forest is
capable of removing on its own. It
has also pledged to replant nearly
26,000 trees.
ID of Arizona girl who died after
swing set breaks released
GILBERT, Ariz. (AP) —
Authorities have released the
names of a girl who was killed and
another injured in Gilbert after a
backyard swing set broke apart.
Gilbert police say 7-year-old
Clara Bergan was flown to a
Phoenix hospital, where she was
later pronounced dead after
Sunday’s accident.
They say 14-year-old Kayla
Eherlico was transported by
ambulance to a different Phoenix
hospital for treatment of a shoulder injury.
Firefighters responded to the
home around 9:30 a.m. Sunday
and found both girls with head
injuries.
Police spokesman Sgt. Jesse
Sanger says the 14-year-old was
on the wooden swing and the
younger girl was standing nearby
when it snapped at the base.
He says both were knocked into
a swimming pool.
Police say neither girl lived at
the home nor were they related.
Feds expand efforts to fight
wildfires by reshaping forests
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — The
towering ponderosa pine trees are
cut down and bundled in quick
succession as heavy equipment
winds its way through a national
forest as part of the largest federal
effort to reshape the forests to
prevent wildfires. The felled trees
then are shredded of their limbs
and eventually will be taken from
the forest in northern Arizona to
Phoenix, where they’ll be turned
into pallets.
Other areas of the Coconino
National Forest are blackened
intentionally by fire, giving native
plants a boost and any wildfire
less of a chance to explode into
something catastrophic.
The complex wildfire-prevention
effort encompassing four national
forests — the Coconino, Kaibab,
Apache-Sitgreaves and Tonto, all
in northern Arizona — is known
as the Four Forest Restoration
Initiative. It aims to restore the
forests to conditions ideal for
wildlife, streams and cultural
resources while creating a buffer
for communities where large wildfires might devastate the landscape.
The Forest Service has about
two dozen similar efforts nationwide, mostly in in the western
U.S., that reflect a focus on speeding up the pace and scale of forest-restoration work. The Arizona
venture is not only the largest, but
it has marked a rare case where
the government, environmentalists and the timber industry —
longtime adversaries — have
reached a consensus to allow the
project to move forward on a large
scale. It eventually will cover 2.4
million acres along a prominent
line of cliffs that divides Arizona’s
high country from the desert. The
biggest swath of the project —
nearly 600,000 acres — was
approved this month.
Baltimore Police: Man arrested
near scene of recent riots
BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore
police say they have arrested a
man on a handgun charge near
the scene of recent rioting over the
death of a man fatally injured in
officers’ custody.
Police tweeted Monday that
reports that the man was shot
were not accurate.
Live television coverage and
photos tweeted from the scene
showed medics putting a man in
an ambulance and a large police
presence, with officers lining up to
apparently block one street.
The activity is taking place in
the Penn North neighborhood,
where police first spotted Freddie
Gray on April 12. He was arrested
and fatally injured in police custody. Six officers were charged
Friday in Gray’s death.
North America’s tallest peak opens
for climbers
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) —
Hundreds of climbers are expected to attempt to summit North
America’s tallest peak this season,
which has begun.
National Park Service rangers
are ready to live on the mountain
for the next three months to help
with rescues on Mount McKinley.
An average of 1,200 people
annually in recent years have
tried to reach the top of Mount
McKinley, and just more than half
succeed in most years. Last season, that number was a low 36
percent because of bad weather,
the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner
reported.
One Mount McKinley climber
died last year, and 32 climbers
required medical attention.
Frostbite and hypothermia were
listed as the most common serious health problems.
National Park Service spokeswoman Maureen Gualtieri is stationed at Talkeetna, which is at
the mountain’s base at Denali
National Park and Preserve. In
one of her first daily blogs, she
said the knee-deep snow was soft
as of April 24 and thinned out at
the mountain’s highest elevations
to slightly less than normal.

Supreme Court rejects inmate’s
appeal for sex-change surgery
BOSTON (AP) — A nearly twodecade legal fight by a convicted
murderer in Massachusetts to get
taxpayer-funded sex-reassignment surgery ended in failure
Monday when the U.S. Supreme
Court rejected her final appeal.
The justices did not comment in
letting stand a lower-court ruling
denying the surgery to Michelle
Kosilek.
“This is a terrible and inhumane result for Michelle,” said
Jennifer Levi, director of the
Transgender Rights Project for
Boston-based Gay and Lesbian
Advocates and Defenders.
The state Department of
Correction, which has fought the
surgery, did not immediately
respond to a request to comment.
State prison officials, who say
the surgery could cost as much as
$50,000, have said in the past
they opposed the surgery because
it would create security problems.
Kosilek was known as Robert
Kosilek when she was convicted of
murdering her spouse, Cheryl, in
1990.
Kosilek, now 65, said in her
legal fight against the state prisons department that her Eighth
Amendment right against cruel
and unusual punishment was
being violated and the surgery is
necessary to relieve the mental
anguish caused by gender-identity disorder.
“The treatment of Michelle has
been cruel and unusual, according to two lengthy, thoughtful,
and closely reasoned judgments,”
Joseph Sulman, one of Kosilek’s
lawyers, said Monday. “The DOC’s
behavior has been abominable as
they have repeatedly defied their
own experts in their eagerness to
deny her desperately needed medical attention.”
Mom charged with throwing baby
into river; he was rescued
ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A
Pennsylvania mother accused of
throwing her 1-year-old son into a
river before jumping from a bridge
herself has been charged with
attempted homicide.
Rescuers pulled Johnesha
Monae Perry and her son from the
Lehigh River in Allentown on
Sunday afternoon.
The 19-year-old Perry is
charged with one count each of
attempted homicide and endangering the welfare of a child and
two counts of aggravated assault.
She was arraigned from her hospital bed.
She’s being held in lieu of
$100,000 bail pending a May 11
preliminary hearing.
Lehigh County’s public defender’s office says a lawyer hasn’t yet
been assigned to the case.
Officers found the baby about
700 yards downstream and performed CPR. Police say Perry and
the baby were in serious condition
Sunday but expected to survive.
Police: 4 dead, 1 hurt in shooting
on Wisconsin bridge
MENASHA, Wis. (AP) — Four
people are dead and one person is
injured after a man opened fire on
a bridge in a small city in eastern
Wisconsin in what police
described as a random shooting.
The shooting happened around
7:30 p.m. Sunday in Menasha on
the Fox Cities Trestle Trail bridge
that spans Little Lake Butte des
Morts, according to Menasha
police.
Police Chief Tim Styka said the
shooter was among those who
died. The man was pronounced
dead at a hospital.
“At this point we do not believe
there is any other threat to the
community,” Styka said. “We
think this was a random act. It
does not appear that anyone was
targeted.”
No responding officer fired their
weapons, he added.
The surviving victim underwent
surgery at Theda Clark Medical
Center in Neenah. Hospital
spokeswoman Megan Mulholland
said the woman in her 30s was in
critical condition Monday.

Italian astronaut brews, sips first
fresh espresso in space
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) —
The International Space Station is
finally serving up fresh Italian
espresso.
Over the weekend, astronaut
Samantha Cristoforetti of Italy
fired up the world’s first espresso
machine in space. She posted a
photo of herself on Twitter on
Sunday, sipping from a cup
designed for use in zero-gravity.
For the special occasion, she put
on her “Star Trek” uniform top.
She couldn’t resist tweeting the
phrase, “to boldly brew.”
Cristoforetti, who returns to
Earth next week, almost didn’t get
any espresso. The experimental
espresso maker, straight from
Italy, was supposed to arrive in
January, but didn’t get to orbit
until April because of a shipment
backlog.
There’s no word yet on how
Cristoforetti liked the space brew.
But it had to beat NASA’s instant

from first quarter growth. But
the March performance could

Economists are looking for a

current April-June quarter to
around 2 percent, climbing to a 3
percent average in the second
half of the year. Rising employment is expected to fuel stronger
consumer spending, which
should help offset sluggish
export growth.
Exports have been hurt by an
increase in the value of the dollar
against other major currencies
over the past year. A strong dollar makes U.S. products more
expensive overseas while lowering the price of imported products and making them more
competitive in the U.S. market.
For the first three months of
this year, the trade deficit was
5.2 percent higher than the same
period a year ago. A larger trade
deficit acts as a drag on growth
because it means more U.S. producers are losing sales to foreign
competitors.
3 congregants killed in semi,
church van crash identified
WAWARSING, N.Y. (AP) — State
police have identified three congregants of a New York City
church who were killed when a
tractor-trailer slammed into the
van they were riding in after
attending a religious retreat.
Troopers identified the victims
as: Miguel St. Louis, 17, of
Brooklyn; Ricadeau Anantua, 33,
of Freeport; and Garry Edouard,
48, of Wyandanch.
State police said the driver of
the van, Guepson Gue, 61, of
Brooklyn, and passenger Mario
Esteverne Sr., 59, of North
Elmont, remain in critical but stable condition at Westchester
Medical Center.
Police say the semi collided with
the passenger side of the church
van as it tried to enter Route 209
in the town of Wawarsing at about
10:30 a.m. Sunday.
The van was carrying seven
people from the Bethesda French
Seventh-day Adventist Church in
Brooklyn.
95-year-old man fights off wouldbe robber with cane
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) —
Police say a 95-year-old World
War II veteran used his cane to
fight off a would-be robber in
Manchester, New Hampshire.
Arthur Kamberis was leaving a
pharmacy on Saturday when a
man approached and reached for
his wallet, which was in a zippered
pocket. Kamberis started to fight
him off and hit him several times
with his cane. A passer-by helped
Kamberis, and the attacker fled.
Kamberis wasn't hurt, and the
good Samaritan drove him home.
Kamberis told WMUR-TV had

Police are still searching for the
man and are circulating a surveillance photo.

High-tech sensors help kids
keep eye on aging parents
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Γ—
Each time 81-year-old Bill
Dworsky or his 80-year-old wife
Dorothy opens the refrigerator,
closes the bathroom door or lifts
the lid on a pill container, tiny
sensors in their San Francisco
home make notes on a digital logbook.
The couple's 53-year-old son,
Phil, checks it daily on his smartphone. If there's no activity during a designated time, the
younger Dworsky gets an automated email, so he can decide
whether to call or stop by. "This is
peace of mind, really," he says of
the system he installed last year.
The Silicon Valley tech executive lives just across town, but
the sensors help him keep an eye
on his aging parents while also
raising a teenage daughter and
frequently traveling for work.
While his parents don't need a lot
of assistance, they have stopped
driving and his father uses a
cane.
"I want to be in the position
where I will know when I need to
step in," he says.
Advances in low-cost sensors
and wireless networks are fueling
a boom in the so-called "smart"
home. And companies are looking
beyond home security and temperature control to creating products for Baby Boomers trying to
balance caring for aging parents
and respecting their independence. It's a new twist on the
notion of personal alarms, such
as the Life Alert system that
gained popularity with "Help, I've
fallen and can't get up" advertisements.
These systems often use simple, inexpensive components
such as accelerometers that
know when an object is moved.
Others use small power sensors
to track electricity use or contact
circuits that tell when a door is
open or closed. Companies like
Lively, Evermind and BeClose
charge $50 to $300 for a set of
sensors and $30 to $70 a month
for wireless monitoring. Each
promises to safeguard clients'
personal information.
A set of motion sensors from
San Francisco-based Lively
seemed right for the Dworskys,
whose son calls them "fiercely
independent." Before hearing
about Lively, Phil had raised the
idea of a webcam in their home.
"They immediately didn't want it.
It was a privacy violation," he
said. But they agreed to sensors
that collect "a more limited set of
information."
Dorothy doesn't think much
about the system tracking her
daily routine. "It's un-intrusive.
That's what we like about it," she
said. "We want to be able to stay
in our home, and this is one way
that makes it possible."
Electronic tracking does raise
issues around dignity and privacy, says Dr. Christine Ritchie, a
geriatrics professor at the
University of California, San
Francisco. She believes some
concerns will diminish as more
people get used to using fitness
bands, "smart" thermostats and
other gadgets that track their
daily lives, though. And independence is attractive.
"Many of my older patients
would be totally unenthusiastic
about having anyone monitor any
part of their life," says Ritchie.
"But some would be grateful for
the prospect of continuing to live
in their own home, rather than
an institution where they have
less control."
Michigan resident Vicki White,
62, was taken aback when her
daughter, who lives in Florida,
suggested an Evermind system
that uses power sensors to track
how often appliances such as coffee makers, lamps or televisions
are used. White's health is good,
but she lives in a rural area without close neighbors. White's own
mother had lived alone and
struggled with Alzheimer's disease that wasn't detected right
away.
"I thought maybe she thought I
was flipping out," White says of
her
daughter,
42-year-old
Melanie
Champion.
"She
explained that she just wanted to
know I was OK and my routine
was as it should be. It's actually
very comforting because I know
she's concerned."
An app on Champion's smartphone shows when her mother
starts her coffee pot in the morning and when she turns off the TV
before going to bed at night.
"It's really nice, except she
wants to lecture me about how
late I stay up at night," White

Crater collapse causes lava
explosion on Hawaii’s Kilauea
HONOLULU (AP) — Molten
lava, rocks and gas went flying
through the air on Hawaii’s
Kilauea volcano after an explosion
was caused by the partial collapse
of a crater wall.
The collapse triggered a small
explosion, spreading lava and
debris around the rim of Kilauea’s
Halemaumau Crater, the U.S.
Geological Survey’s Hawaiian
Volcano Observatory says.
Janet Babb, a geologist with
the USGS, compared the blast on
Sunday to taking a hammer to the
top of a bottle of champagne.
“You look at the bottle and you
see the liquid, but you don’t see
the gas,” she said. “There’s a lot of
gas in the lava. And so, when that
rock fall hits the lava lake, it’s like
the moment you knock the top of
the champagne bottle off and that
gas is released and it hurls
molten lava and rock fragments.”
Rocks overhanging the lava
lake are altered by gases coming
from the lava, Babb said. The
rocks eventually give way and collapse into the lava, causing an
explosion.
The material was hurled about
280 feet skyward, she said.
Video of the event shows a wall
of rocks sliding into a lava lake
that last week rose to a recordhigh level. The slide caused an
explosion that sent fist-size
chunks of rock onto the closed
Halemaumau visitor overlook,
according to the Geological
Survey. The area has been closed
since 2008, when the lava lake
formed, and no one was injured.
There could be fallout of ash
and dust from this type of event,
but it’s very unlikely that anyone
could be injured, Babb said. Wind
direction dictates the amount of
debris that lands in visitor areas,
and it is relatively common, she
said.
The last time molten lava was
visible in the crater was in 1982,
when a fissure erupted. The last
time there was a lake similar to
this one was in 1974.
The vent within Halemaumau
Crater has been rising and falling
since it first opened, but it
reached a record high last week.
Even at its previous highest level
in October 2012, the lake was too
low for people to see. During the
day, people could view the gas rising from the lake, and at night
people could see the orange glow
from the lava.
From the early 1800s up until
1924, there was a continuous
lake of lava at Kilauea summit
within Halemaumau. At that
time, the crater was about half
the diameter of what it is now.
In 1924, there was a huge
eruption inside the volcano that
doubled the size of the crater.
Since 1924, lava lakes have
been present at different times. In
1967 and 1968, the entire crater
was filled with molten lava.

So far in this campaign,
Huckabee stands apart from
most rivals in squarely taking on
gay-rights advocates. He’s criticized the “militant gay community” and its opposition to “religious liberty” laws in Indiana and
Arkansas.
“It won’t stop,” Huckabee said,
“until there are no more churches, until there are no more people
who are spreading the Gospel,
and I’m talking now about the
unabridged, unapologetic Gospel
that is really God’s truth.”
His record as governor is complex: He both cut and raised
taxes, and issued more criminal
pardons and sentence commutations than his three predecessors
(including Clinton) combined.

has taken him all across the

He’s got a natural connection

‘Feisty Fillies’ gallop into district title game
By JOE CANNON
Banner Assistant Sports Editor
For the fourth straight year
Walker Valley will go after a
District 5-AAA softball championship, but this time around will
be riding in from a different
direction.
In the previous three league
tournaments, the “Feisty Fillies”
have had to come out of the
loser’s bracket with the high
pressure of do-or-die games.
Tonight
Coach
Lauren
Limburg’s herd will stampede
into the title game with a Region
3-AAA berth already in hand,
and would have to lose twice to
have to settle for the runner-up
trophy for a fourth straight campaign.
“I challenged these girls before
the tournament began to be in
this position and they have never
stopped believing,” the Lady
Mustang mentor related after an
8-6 victory over top-seeded
Soddy-Daisy Monday evening in
the winner’s bracket final at Bob
McKenzie Field.
Punching their ticket for next
week’s region event takes the
pressure off and allows Walker
Valley to concentrate on its goal
of claiming its first district title
since 2009.
The Lady Mustangs (24-7) will
await the winner of this evening’s
battle between Soddy-Daisy (268) and second-seeded Ooltewah
(32-8), which knocked off East
Hamilton 11-0 Monday night to
stay alive.
With a pair of disappointing
league losses in the final week of
regular season, Walker Valley
tied with the Lady Trojans and
Lady Owls with 9-3 district
records, but had to settle for the
No. 3 seed after the tie-breaker
criteria was applied.
Tonight’s Soddy-Ooltewah victor will also advance to the region
tournament next week, as well as
face Walker Valley for the district
crown.
With Coach Limburg having
stressed to her herd the importance of a quick start against the
Lady Trojans, she was excited to
see her team put up a trio of
runs in the game’s first at bat.
“It was huge for us to get those
runs in the first inning. We
haven’t been a team that scores a
lot early, but I felt like tonight we
really needed to,” she stated.
Tennessee Wesleyan signee
Carly Frost led the game off with
a walk and was bunted up to second by teammate Sydney
Ventura.
Lady Trojan coach Wes Skiles
then showed that he wasn’t going
to let two-time all-state standout
Hallie Davis beat his team with
her bat, issuing the Lee signee
the first of four intentional walks.
After another walk to TWC
signee AJ Chancey to load the
bases, junior Emilee Spann
sliced a single down the right
field line to drive in Frost and
Davis.

Jackie Newport.
Unwilling to just surrender,
the six-time defending district
champion Soddy-Daisy squad
answered with a four-run rally in
the bottom of the first to grab the
lead.
Highlighted by a bases-clear-
ing double off the fence by
Morgan Beasley, the Lady
Trojans also got some help from
a trio of free passes, the last of
which drove in a run.
Neither team scored in the second inning despite leaving two
ducks on the pond apiece.
The “Feisty Fillies” cranked
back up their scoring machine
with another three-run rally in
the top of the third frame to take
the lead for good.
After Bean and fellow senior
Mackenzie Elrod had drawn free
passes, Ali King sliced a single to
right to load the bases.
Frost then smacked a hard
grounder to the Soddy shortstop,
who threw to third for the fielder’s choice, allowing Bean to
score.
Ventura followed with a hard
shot into the left-center field gap
and when the dust settled, she
was on third base with a triple,
scoring both King and Frost.
Walker Valley got a pair of big
insurance runs in the top of the
fourth when Lincoln Memorial
signee Alicia Raymond was
“plunked,” and Bean followed
with her fourth home run of the
season, this one into the trees
beyond the left field fence.
The Lady Trojans came back
with a pair of runs in the bottom
of the fourth when Grayson
Brown smacked a two-out single
to drive in a couple of teammates.
Neither team would score in
the final three innings, although
Soddy threatened by getting the
first five batters on base in the
sixth, plus the first three in the
bottom of the seventh.
The Lady Trojans left 10 runners on base in the contest, while
Walker Valley stranded nine.
Snapping out of a recent minislump, Bean went 3-for-3, with
her homer and a trio of “ribbies.”
“I just wanted to help my
team,” declared Bean. “I’ve been
struggling some lately, so I felt it
was important to step up and
have a good game. Our whole

Cleveland football placed on probation
By LARRY C. BOWERS
Banner Staff Writer
For the second time in less
than a month, a school in
Bradley County has seen its football program placed on probation
by the Tennessee Secondary
School Athletic Association.
The Cleveland High School
football program has been placed
on a two-year probation by the
TSSAA.
The probation and penalties of
reduced practice sessions and
scrimmages were handed down
by the state’s athletic association,
due to what it considers prohibited communication by Cleveland

From Staff Reports
BENTON — Polk County
had an easy opening round
game in the District 5-AA
Tournament, but now must
face the only league team to
beat the Lady Wildcats this
season.
Top-seeded Polk blanked
No. 5 seed Loudon 8-0 in the
semifinal contest in Benton
Monday and will now entertain second-seeded Sequoyah
this evening.
“We tied with Sequoyah for
first place in the district (both
with 7-1 records), but we got
them on the run differential to
get the top seed,” explained
Polk head coach Bill Triplett.
The Lady Wildcats defeated
the Lady Chiefs 8-4 in
Madisonville during the regular season, but dropped an 86 decision in Benton.
Today’s victor will advance
to the district title game
Thursday, plus earn a spot in
next week’s Region 3-AA
Tournament,
The loser will have to face
the winner of tonight’s game
between
Loudon
and
Sweetwater in an elimination
game Wednesday.
Polk County (17-6) scored
solo runs in each of the first
four frames Monday before
putting up a 4-spot in the bottom of the fifth inning to seal
the scoring.
“We scored six of our eight
runs with two outs,”
explained Coach Triplett. “We
were able to get some timely
hits and grind it out.”
“We got some good pitching
from Hannah (Triplett) and we
played pretty clean defense for
the most part,” he added.
The
younger
Triplett
improved to 12-4 in the circle
this season, striking out seven
and scattering five hits in the
complete-game,
shutout
effort.
She also went 2-for-3 at the
dish with a double and drove
in a pair of runs to support
her own cause.
All-stater Aubrie Bowman
went 3-for-4 at the plate,
while Tennessee Wesleyan

tions proposed by Cleveland were
first rejected by the TSSAA and
both parties reached an agreement on the second version.
Their meeting was reportedly
at the Cleveland High fieldhouse,
and requested by the student.
Cleveland Director of Schools
Dr. Martin Ringstaff reported the
investigation and subsequent
TSSAA decision to the city
schools Board of Education
Monday evening.
“We back Coach Cummings
100 percent on this,” said
Ringstaff. “It’s ridiculous to think
this is not happening (frequently)
across the state.”
Cummings reportedly talked to
the student during his first-period weightlifting class at
Cleveland Middle School, where
the student is enrolled in the
class. At the student’s request,
his guardian later met with
Cummings on the high school
campus.
TSSAA ruled the violation was
the visit to the fieldhouse, which
is on a separate campus.
According to a release from
Cleveland High Principal Autumn
O’Bryan, the meeting was set up
to discuss the student’s behavior.
At the end of the discussion,
the vision and focus of the
Cleveland football program were
reportedly discussed, which was
ruled a violation of TSSAA policy.
Cummings said there was no
intention to influence or recruit a
student from outside the city
school system. “Cleveland Middle
will continue to be our feeder,” he
added. “I will make the necessary
adjustments and move forward.”
One development of the ruling
and penalty is that the studentathlete was also suspended from
participating at Cleveland for the
upcoming football season.
“In their (TSSAA) eyes, no one
has a feeder system,” said
Ringstaff, adding that as
Cleveland High’s varsity coach,
Cummings cannot discuss football with any eighth-grade student (or parent figure).
He said that if Cleveland
Middle School was located on the
same campus as the high school,
as it was in the past, the meeting
would have been entirely permissible. Now, they are separate

Wood struggles again as Braves fall to Phillies
ATLANTA (AP) — Alex Wood’s
second straight poor start has the
young Atlanta left-hander wondering how he can reclaim the
form that made his 2014 rookie
season a success.
Wood struggled with his command and was pulled in the fifth
inning as Jeff Francoeur and the
Philadelphia Phillies rolled to a 52 victory over the Braves on
Monday night.
Wood, 24, allowed three runs,
nine hits and two walks in 4 1-3
innings.
“His command wasn’t good,”
Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez
said. “I’m not overly concerned,
but that’s not him.”
Wood (1-2) said his sinker and
changeup “haven’t been there.”
He allowed five runs in five
innings in a 13-4 loss to
Washington in his last start.
“I’ve got to make an adjustment,” Wood said after his ERA
rose to 4.32 with his second
straight loss. “It’s a humbling
game, to say the least.”
Wood was 11-11 with a 2.78
ERA as a rookie.
Francoeur, who began his
career with the Braves, ended his
0-for-19 drought with four hits
and drove in two runs.
Francoeur’s family, including
his wife, daughter and grandmother, watched as he had a runscoring double off Wood in
Philadelphia’s three-run first
inning. He drove in another run
with a triple off Jim Johnson in
the ninth. He also had two singles.
“Anytime that happens it feels
good but obviously in Atlanta,
with my family and my daughter
here, it was special,” Francoeur
said.

son, allowed five hits and one run
in six innings. In two starts
against Atlanta this season,
Harang has allowed one run and
seven hits in 14 innings. He was
12-12 with a career-best 3.57
ERA with Atlanta last season.
Carlos Ruiz had two hits,
including a two-run single, and
Darrin Ruf had three of the
Phillies’ season-high 14 hits.
Harang gave up the run in the
sixth when Andrelton Simmons
tripled off the wall in center field
and scored on Freddie Freeman’s
single.
With Freeman still on first,
Odubel Herrera caught Jonny
Gomes’ drive at the top of the wall
in center. Herrera made the leaping catch after being unable to

Sandberg came out of the dugout
in the eighth when an inside pitch
from Luis Avilan sent Ben Revere
to the ground. The pitch appeared
to hit the knob of Revere’s bat.
Revere then took a called third
strike to end the inning.
Sandberg said after the game
he didn’t know if Avilan was wild
or trying to brush back Revere.
LOCKED IN AT LEADOFF
Markakis ended an 0-for-14
slump with a leadoff single in the
first, his first of two hits.
Markakis hit leadoff for the 10th
straight game and appears locked
into the spot.
“Of all the options we have, he’s
the one who makes the most
sense,” Gonzalez said before the
game.

Warriors’ Stephen Curry voted
NBA’s MVP over Harden, James
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — His
voice cracked first. Then, his eyes
got red. Finally, Stephen Curry
cried.
He had felt this way in the past
— when he barely received any
scholarship offers out of high
school, when some questioned
whether his game could translate
from tiny Davidson College to the
NBA, when he sat in a doctor’s
office searching for answers on
how to fix his troublesome right
ankle.
Curry could let it all out and
laugh now. This was a time for
celebration.
The Golden State Warriors
point guard won the NBA’s Most
Valuable Player award Monday,
the biggest moment yet of a
young career already full of overcoming obstacles.
Curry received the Maurice
Podoloff Trophy in a packed hotel
ballroom below Golden State’s
downtown Oakland practice facility. He shook his head in disbelief
as he was announced as the winner of the league’s top individual
honor.
“There were obviously good
times and bad times. Times I
wanted to shut it down. Times
where you realize that all the
hard work you put into it was
worth it,” Curry said. “It just
made me realize how blessed and
thankful I really am to be in this
position.”
Curry received 100 of 130 firstplace votes for a total of 1,198
points from a panel of 129 writers
and broadcasters, along with the
fan vote on the NBA’s website.
Houston’s James Harden had 25
first-place votes and 936 points.
Cleveland’s LeBron James, a
four-time MVP, got five first-place
votes and 552 points.
Oklahoma City’s Russell
Westbrook (352 points) finished
fourth and New Orleans Pelicans
big man Anthony Davis (203
points) was fifth.
Curry’s family informed him of
the news at his house after
Golden State’s win over Memphis
in Game 1 of the Western
Conference semifinals Sunday.
Curry, pulled into a room by his
basketball-playing brother, Seth,
opened the door to see everyone
wearing personalized MVP Tshirts, holding cameras and
sporting “the cheesiest smiles
you could ever imagine.”
“It was a great moment that I’ll
remember for the rest of my life,”
Curry said.
Afterward, he sat in a chair for
about 10 minutes and reflected
on his journey.
Curry kept his cool in private
Sunday. He had trouble staying
composed at times in public
Monday.
Curry was joined on stage by
Warriors coach Steve Kerr, general manager Bob Myers and his
teammates — praising each of
them individually. He got choked
up talking about his pregnant
wife, Ayesha, and their 2-yearold daughter, Riley, who sat in
the front row with the rest of his
family.
And he shed a few tears talking
about his father, Dell, pounding
the dais while he gathered his
thoughts.
“A lot of people thought I had it
easy with pops playing in the
NBA,” he said, shaking his head.
Curry thanked just about
every team employee, too, includ-
ing former general manager Larry
Riley and retired coach Don
Nelson for “taking a chance on a
scrawny, little kid from a midmajor school.”
Across the country, James
called Curry the “catalyst” for
Golden State’s rise from perennial loser to championship contender.
“I think it’s great that another
kid born in Akron, Ohio, can win
an MVP, so I liked it,” James said
at the Cavaliers’ shootaround.
Curry, now 27, was born in
Akron but grew up in Charlotte,
North Carolina, where he started
in the shadows of his father.
Despite his famous name,
most major colleges didn’t offer
Curry a scholarship because they
thought he was too small. Curry
proved them all wrong, going
from a shooting guard who dazzled at Davidson during the
NCAA Tournament to a polished

Earnhardt back in victory lane and happier than ever
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) —
There was a nearly five-year period for Dale Earnhardt Jr. when
being a famous race car driver
wasn’t all glitz and glamour.
He was a non-factor on the
race track, barely even contended at Daytona and Talladega, the
two places he was supposed to be
unbeatable, and he is the first to
admit his confidence had crumbled.
Rebuilding NASCAR’s most
popular driver was a lengthy
process that took a firm commitment from Rick Hendrick and a
ton of patience from Earnhardt’s
rabid fan base. The turnaround
was slow — some laps led here, a
win there — until he finally hit
his stride last season with a
Daytona 500 victory and three
other wins.
So it was no surprise Sunday
to see Earnhardt back in victory
lane
at
Talladega
Superspeedway, a track he at
one time had conquered with the
same ease as his father. The late
Dale Earnhardt won 10 times at
the Alabama restrictor-plate
track; his son once reeled off five
wins in seven races.
What was a surprise was the
pure emotion that poured out of
Junior when he climbed from his
car following his sixth Talladega
victory, his first at the track
since 2004, and one that came
just four days after what would
have been his father’s 64th birthday.
Earnhardt choked on his
words as he talked about how
much he appreciates his life, that
he doesn’t think he deserves all
this happiness. Hours later, the
beer and champagne soaking
through his firesuit and his emotions finally in check, he was
asked what made him so reflective immediately after the win.
His answer showed again what
a thoughtful and sincere man
Earnhardt has become. Shy as a
child, then cast as a party boy
when he moved to NASCAR’s top
series, he’s finally figured out
exactly who he is. He’s a homebody at heart who has found the
woman of his dreams, and
together they’ve learned a greater
appreciation for every success he
earns on the track.
At 40, he’s blissfully content
and forever grateful for this
opportunity he still has driving
the Hendrick Motorsports No. 88
Chevrolet.
“I think the part I feel I don’t
think I deserve is the racing side
of it — there’s just not many second chances,” he said. “I feel like
if my name wasn’t Earnhardt
that I wouldn’t have had the second chance. I feel like I owe my
second chance to my dad, his
legacy, because the way I ran ... I
feel I didn’t deserve to be kept
around or hung onto.”
A fan of all sports and a bit of
a historian, Earnhardt said he
has seen plenty of sons follow
their father into business and
fail. After just four wins in nine
seasons, Earnhardt certainly
wasn’t living up to his father’s
legacy.
The late Dale Earnhardt was a
seven-time Cup champion, a
first-ballot Hall of Famer, winner
of 76 career races and a driver
who sent shivers down the
spines of his rivals when they
saw him in the rearview mirror.
During all those lean years,
the question of if Junior would
ever win a Cup championship
was replaced by “Will he ever
even win a race again?”
Last season proved he’s a winner again, maybe even a championship contender. It also became
clear that Earnhardt had found a
companion in girlfriend Amy
Reimann who brought out the
best in him.
His genuine love for Reimann
poured out of him during his
post-race obligations. They’d
made the decision last week that
she wouldn’t attend Talladega
and instead would get things
done around their North
Carolina home.
When he woke up Sunday
morning and she wasn’t there on
race day, he realized what a bad
idea it had been for her not to
come.
“I was miserable that she wasn’t here,” he said. “It just proves
to me how much she means to
me and how important she is to
me. She’s been a big help in getting me out of my shell.”
Earnhardt talked about how
he spent so many years holed up
in his motorhome at the race
track, how he turned down so
many invitations to parties or
events just to sit on his computer
and online race.
“I thought I was having fun,
but I was really miserable,” he
said. “She’s made my life a whole
lot more enjoyable and showed
me how to have fun and showed
me there’s a lot more to life.”
He also credited his sister,
Kelley, who runs JR Motorsports
for him, and his mother, Brenda,
who has been a fixture in his
inner circle the last several years.
“Everything is in the right
direction, everybody is happy,”
Earnhardt said. “I guess that’s
the way it’s supposed to be.”
That is the way it was supposed to be at Talladega.
Earnhardt has figured out how
to make it work everywhere.

Counsell’s mangerial debut Probation
From Page 13
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The
Brewers rallied for three runs in
the eighth inning to win Craig
Counsell’s managerial debut, a
4-3 victory over the Los Angeles
Dodgers on Monday night.
Dodgers starter Clayton
Kershaw was denied his 100th
career win, and took a no-decision.
The Brewers overcame a 3-0
deficit with one run in the sixth
and three in the eighth in
Counsell’s first game since taking over for Ron Roenicke, who
was fired Sunday night.
Hector Gomez and pinch-hitter Gerardo Parra opened the
sixth with consecutive triples to
cut the lead to 3-1.
Gomez pulled the Brewers
within a run at 3-2 in the eighth
with his first career home run.
Adam Lind chased Kershaw
with a pinch-hit double, and
Carlos Gomez greeted reliever
Chris Hatcher (0-3) with a tying
RBI double. Gomez advanced to
third on Jason Rogers’ groundout and then scored on infield
single by Ryan Braun.
RANGERS 2, ASTROS 1
HOUSTON (AP) — Robinson
Chirinos hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, and
Texas snapped Houston’s 10game winning streak.
Chirinos’ sacrifice fly to center scored Adrian Beltre, who
led off the inning with a double
off Chad Qualls (0-2), moved to
third on Kyle Blanks’ single and
slid in as Jake Marisnick’s
throw to the plate went to the
backstop.
Keone Kela (2-1) pitched the
eighth for the win, and Neftali
Feliz pitched the ninth for his
third save.
Houston scored in the first as
Jose Altuve and George
Springer drew walks, worked a
double steal and Altuve scored
on Evan Gattis’ sacrifice fly to
make it 1-0.
Jake Smolinski tied it in the
eighth with a one-out RBI single
to center.
MARINERS 3, ANGELS 2
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) —
Nelson Cruz hit his major
league-leading 14th home run
and Felix Hernandez won his
fifth straight decision to start
the season, leading Seattle over
Los Angeles.
Cruz celebrated his first AL
Player of the Month Award with
a leadoff shot against Matt
Shoemaker (2-2) that snapped a
scoreless tie in the seventh.
Hernandez (5-0) allowed a run
in seven innings while striking
out eight and lowering his ERA
to 1.73. The 2010 AL Cy Young
Award winner became the first
Seattle starter since 2001 to win
his first five decisions.
Fernando Rodney closed for
his eighth save.
Logan Morrison and Seth
Smith also homered off
Shoemaker, who was 3-0 in his
four previous starts against the
Mariners. The right-hander
struck out 10 in 7 1-3 innings.
Matt Joyce and David Freese

RAYS 5, RED SOX 1
BOSTON (AP) — Jake Odorizzi
pitched seven strong innings,
Joey Butler hit his first career
homer and Tampa Bay’s offense
perked up a bit.
David DeJesus drove in two
runs for the Rays, who scored
just four runs in a three-game
set this past weekend against
Baltimore.
Boston left fielder Hanley
Ramirez was injured in the first
inning and left the game with a
sprained left shoulder after he
ran into a padded side wall
attempting to make a catch.
The Rays have been held to
two or fewer runs in nearly half
of their games.
Odorizzi (3-2) gave up one
run, seven hits and struck out
six. He matched a Rays’ club
record by not allowing a homer
for the sixth straight start.
CARDINALS 10, CUBS 9
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Tony Cruz
hit a tiebreaking, two-run double to cap a four-run seventh
inning, and St. Louis rallied to
beat Chicago for its seventh
straight win.
Mark Reynolds started the
comeback for the NL Central
leaders, who trailed 5-0 in the
first, with his fourth career
grand slam in the bottom of the
inning. The Cardinals improved

complexes, and the parent’s visit
to the high school campus violated the rules.
“We feel bad for Coach
Cummings, but we support him
on this,” said Ringstaff. “He has
never had a violation like this in
his 20-year coaching career. He is
embarrassed, and we’re embarrassed.”
Penalties include the elimination of the Raiders’ 7-on-7 drills
this summer, and preseason
scrimmages. Cleveland will not be
able to compete in a preseason
jamboree, and the program was
fined $1,000.
Cleveland is also limited to five
days of practice during the 10day window in 2016, with only
two scrimmages and no jamboree
appearance.
Athletic Director Eric Phillips
said Cleveland High is taking
steps to correct misinterpretation
of the rule.
The TSSAA action against
Cleveland comes on the heels of a
recent decision against crosstown
rival Bradley Central, also penalized for a recruiting violation.
School board member Peggy
Pesterfield
asked
Monday
evening, “Is there an example of
this happening before?” to which
Ringstaff responded, “We are now
the example!”
Another board member, Dawn
Robinson, asked, “Would the
punishment have been the same
if Coach Cummings had gone to
Ocoee Middle or Lake Forest
Middle (county schools) and
spoke to a student?” She was
answered in the affirmative.
Coaches, former coaches, and
administrators in the audience
joined Ringstaff in saying they
feel the TSSAA decision was
harsh.
The consensus of opinions
among school officials Monday
night is the rule should be
reviewed.
One administrator, and a former coach, said there were probably coaches across the state who
spoke with prospective players
Monday, thus violating the rule in
question.
Penalties have been handed
down
and
accepted
by
Cleveland’s administration and
coaches.

Curry carried the top-seeded
Warriors to a franchise-record 67
wins, surpassed his own NBA
record for most 3-pointers in a
season and added to his growing
reputation as one of the most
entertaining spectacles in sports.
He’s the franchise’s first MVP
since Wilt Chamberlain in 1960,
when the Warriors played in
Philadelphia.
But there were times it seemed
Curry’s potential might not be
reached. Two operations on his
right ankle in his first three seasons with Golden State fueled
questions about his durability.
Curry signed a $44 million,
four-year contract extension with
the Warriors before the 2012-13
season. Back then, the deal looked
like a major risk.
Now, he’s one of basketball’s
best bargains.
Myers got choked up thinking
back to those days. He recalled
sitting in a doctor’s office with
Curry listening to the results on
the point guard’s injured ankle.
“I remember thinking that day,
‘This can’t be how his career goes.
This isn’t how it’s supposed to
be,’” Myers said. “And then I fast
forward in my own mind to today

him thinking, ‘This is how it’s supposed to be for Steph. This is the
conclusion of four years of work

Remembering moms everywhere on Mother’s Day
One of the interesting activities
involved in planning for a weekly column of information to be able to share
with Bradley County and our community are the changing dates of some holidays and the date of the column’s publication.
This week these items have produced
what at first glance may be an unusual
combination of events. Cinco De Mayo is
to be celebrated today and the Mother’s
Day holiday is this Sunday.
Cinco De Mayo is actually not a federal holiday in the United States of
America, but it is more widely celebrated in America than even in Mexico.
It is also not to be confused with
Mexico’s Independence Day, but it does
celebrate the defeat of the French Army,
with the help of American forces, during
the Battle of Puebla in Mexico on May 5,
1862.
OUR
COUNTY
Bradley County
Mayor
D. Gary Davis
These distinctions help to solidify the
pro-American components of life in the
mid- to late-Civil War era that helped to
build upon these events strong
American celebrations for all to enjoy.
With a diverse background sharing a
common goal and an increase in participation, may we all continue to see that
we are stronger when we work together
to achieve any goal.
Mother’s Day is a federal holiday in
America that is celebrated literally
worldwide. Few may know it was actually started by a woman who did not
have children. Also originating at the
time of the American Civil War, Ms.
Anna Jarvis (born in 1864) watched
her mother, Mrs. Ann Jarvis, work tirelessly for families across the nation
and wanted to find a way to honor her
mother and the many sacrifices of
those who shared her love and devotion for family.
While working to found this holiday,
at first she soon became one of its greatest critics as she felt that people had
begun to rely on others to express their
appreciation and true feelings of love for
their individual mothers and their families as well. This relying on others did
not allow for proper self-expression of
thankfulness and was allowing some to
turn this once honorable idea into a
profit-making machine for a few who
developed card and floral businesses to
serve the ever-increasing need.
If it is possible for you to speak with
your mother this weekend, please do so.
Take the time to let them know that
they are cared for, appreciated, remembered and LOVED.
This moment of conversation may be
the last time you ever get to do this
activity, and I was always taught to “give
roses to the living.” Your investment in
time, words and actions can and will
produce results that are nothing short
of amazing each and every time.
Whether we are celebrating the combining of forces to reach a common goal
or the ability to once again say “thank
you” to those who have literally given us
life, please remember to do so with love
and appreciation of the time that we
have been given each day.
I remember my mother, each Mother’s
Day, with fondness as one who left
behind a legacy of love, integrity, godly
character and manners that will influence the Davis family for generations.
There are many things I miss about her,
but I am thankful for the opportunity to
have been “instructed by the best.” Time
may be what we all value, but it is also
what some of us wish we had more of
now.
Please join with me this Sunday on
Mother’s Day in thanking God for those
gracious ladies who taught with few
words but by lots of examples, and
whose value to this community has
been and is invaluable.
As your county mayor, I appreciate
each mother and your contribution to
our county’s way and quality of life.
You hold the most precious title of all
... “Mother.”
Thank you!

TODAY IN HISTORY
Today is Tuesday, May 5, the
125th day of 2015. There are 240
days left in the year.
Today’s
Highlights
in
History:
On May 5, 1945, in the only
fatal attack of its kind during
World War II, a Japanese balloon
bomb exploded on Gearhart
Mountain in Oregon, killing Elsie
Mitchell, the 26-year-old pregnant wife of a minister, and five
children: Dick Patzke, 14; Jay
Gifford, 13; Edward Engen, 13;
Joan Patzke, 13; and Sherman
Shoemaker, 11. Denmark and
the Netherlands were liberated as
a German surrender went into
effect.
On this date:
In 1821, Napoleon Bonaparte,
51, died in exile on the island of
St. Helena.
In 1862, Mexican troops
defeated French occupying forces
in the Battle of Puebla.
In 1865, what’s believed to be
America’s first train robbery took
place as a band of criminals
derailed a St. Louis-bound train
near North Bend, Ohio; they proceeded to rob the passengers and
loot safes on board before getting
away.
In 1915, musical film star Alice
Faye was born Alice Leppert in
New York.
In 1925, schoolteacher John T.
Scopes
was
charged
in
Tennessee with violating a state
law that prohibited teaching the
theory of evolution. (Scopes was
found guilty, but his conviction
was later set aside.)
In 1934, the first Three

Dear Annie: I am an 83-yearold widow in good health. My
daughter lives about two hours
away. She is 50 and well educated and has been in a long-term
relationship with an older retired
man. She does a lot of care-giving
for him and his family members.
Three years ago, my daughter
lost her job during an economic
downturn and has made no
attempt to find other employment. I have been giving her
money every month and paid for a
course in massage therapy, but
she has not attempted to find a
job in that field. She received
insurance money to repair her
home when it flooded over the
winter, but she hasn’t done the
repairs. Instead, she camps out
at her boyfriend’s apartment.
When I ask, she will come help
me with certain things.
She is my only child, and there
are no other close relatives. I am
not wealthy, but am comfortable.
My daughter will inherit trust
money and my house when I die,
and this bothers me. I don’t want
what my husband and I worked
and planned for to eventually go
to her boyfriend and his family. I
am thinking of changing the
trust, leaving her a fixed amount
and giving the rest to a charity.
Are there other alternatives? — A.
Dear A.: There are always
alternatives. You could leave your
daughter the house and trust
only under certain conditions, in
order to exclude the boyfriend
and his family, although that
won’t necessarily change how
your daughter chooses to live her
life. But there is also nothing
wrong with giving some (or all) of
your money to a charity that
would appreciate it. Please talk to
an estate attorney, who will help
you figure out the various possibilities and put them in writing.
Dear Annie: Like “Lost for an
Answer,” I wear suspenders and
often have them snapped by
someone else. If the suspender
snapper is not wearing suspenders, I feel demeaned. But if
he is wearing suspenders, too,
then it is a salute from a brother.
— Paul

Greece seeing progress Cleveland Daily Banner
– Established in 1854 –
in nation’s bailout talks
ATHENS, Greece (AP) —
Weekend negotiations between
Greece and rescue lenders have
made progress, officials on both
sides said Monday even though
Athens stressed it needed a swift
release of delayed bailout money
to keep up with debt payments.
Greece’s new government is
struggling to deliver economic
reforms and budget measures
that are deemed acceptable by
creditors in order to secure the
remaining money in its bailout
fund worth 7.2 billion euros
($7.7 billion).
Without the money, Greece
faces the possibility of going
bankrupt in the coming weeks,
putting up controls on the free
flow of capital and an exit from
the euro. Its next big repayment
is a 750 million-euro payment
due to the International
Monetary Fund on May 12.
“At this moment, the government is discussing, it is negotiating, and there has been significant progress at these negotiations,”
Greek
government
spokesman Gabriel Sakellaridis
said. “The government is awaiting and expecting the release of
funds, and for this liquidity to be
made available not at the end of
May, but as soon as possible.”
A eurozone official said
finance ministers from the currency zone would “take stock” of
the situation at their regular
meeting next Monday, and possibly “go beyond that if” talks in
Brussels are fruitful over the
rest of this week.
The official, who did not want
to be identified because the talks
were ongoing, said the negotiations were finally “in full swing,”
something they should have
done weeks ago.

NYPD officer with promising
career dies from gunshot wound
Report: ‘Legal
firewall’ shields
Chinese firms
from lawsuits
WASHINGTON (AP) —Chinese
companies are shielding themselves from lawsuits in America,
denying U.S. businesses and
investors their day in court, a
report from a federal watchdog
says.
The report published Tuesday by
the U.S.-China Economic Security
Commission says that Chinese
companies operating in the U.S.
have built a legal firewall that keeps
them largely immune from the
jurisdiction of U.S. courts and regulatory agencies.
They use complicated corporate
structures that protect their Chinabased parent companies from U.S.
lawsuits. And they often claim that
Chinese secrecy and banking laws
exempt them from turning over evidence and responding to U.S. court
documents.
The report calls on Congress to
establish that Chinese companies
fall under the jurisdiction of U.S.
courts and require that Chinese
firms assign agents to accept subpoenas and other U.S. court documents.
For now, anyone suing a Chinese
company can find it “almost impossible” to deliver court papers to the
defendants in the United States,
according to the report.
That forces plaintiffs into a cumbersome international process for
delivering legal documents and
pursuing evidence in China. The
paperwork must be translated into
Chinese, then presented to China’s
government, which often rejects the
cases for alleged errors.
The report, written by commission researcher Kevin Rosier, studied several cases involving stateowned Chinese banks and other
financial firms.
In a 2011 suit against Chinese
companies that allegedly sold
counterfeit
handbags,
for
instance, Gucci America tried
unsuccessfully to force the stateowned Bank of China to turn
over financial records related to
the sales of the disputed goods.
Bank of China argued that
Chinese law barred it from delivering the information. The case
has been bogged down in U.S.
courts for more than four years.
Beijing-based Harvest Fund
Management has so far managed
to fend off a lawsuit filed last year
by
U.S.-based
Krane
Distribution. Krane alleges that
Harvest reneged on an agreement
to jointly market mutual funds in
the U.S. But Harvest argues that
only its shell company, Harvest
USA, falls under the jurisdiction
of U.S. courts and that Krane
cannot collect evidence from
Harvest operations in China, the
report says.
The problems reflect the complications that arise as China
seeks to expand internationally,
bringing to the U.S. companies
that are often owned at least partially by the Chinese government.
“It really puts American companies at an economic disadvantage,” says Frederick Longer, a
lawyer with the Philadelphia law
firm Levin, Fishbein, Sedran &
Berman, who has pursued cases
against Chinese companies.

In thIs MArch 11, 2014, file photo, Air Force Gen. Paul Selva
testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, before the Senate Armed
Services Committee hearing to consider the nomination of Selva for
reappointment to the grade of general and to be Commander, United
States Transportation Command. Officials on today, said President
Barack Obama is tapping Selva to serve as vice chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Marine general chosen
Joint Chiefs chairman
WASHINGTON (AP) —President
Barack Obama is choosing a
widely respected, combat-hardened commander who led the
Afghanistan war coalition during
a key transitional period during
2013-14 as the next chairman of
the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
U.S. officials say he is nominating Marine Gen. Joseph
Dunford Jr. to the post to succeed Army Gen. Martin Dempsey,
who will have served four years
as chairman.
Obama plans to make the
announcement at the White
House Tuesday, said officials
who spoke on condition of
anonymity because they weren’t
authorized to speak publicly
ahead of the announcement.
Dunford is expected to be easily
confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
Dunford’s service as the commandant of the U.S. Marine
Corps will be cut short after he
began that job last October. But
the rapid promotion is one of several that have marked Dunford’s
fast-tracked military career,
which saw him leap from a onestar general to four stars in about
three years.
Officials also said Obama is
tapping Gen. Paul J. Selva, a top
Air Force officer and pilot, to
serve as vice chairman. Selva,
who has clocked more than
3,100 hours piloting transport
and refueling aircraft, is currently
the
head
of
U.S.
Transportation Command at
Scott Air Force Base in Illinois.
Dunford began his career as
an infantry officer and has commanded at all levels. He served
nearly two years in Iraq, including as head of the Marines’ 5th
Regimental Combat Team during
the 2003 invasion, where he
earned the nickname “Fighting
Joe.”
He is well-connected internationally, often meeting with NATO
and other coalition leaders, particularly during his Afghanistan
command. His selection signals
that even as the U.S. puts more
focus on Asia and looks ahead to
high-tech cyber and space
threats, the administration still
believes a strong ground force
commander is needed to work
through the ongoing conflicts in
Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and
across the Middle East and
Africa.
If confirmed, Dunford would be
only the second Marine to serve
as chairman. Gen. Peter Pace,
the first Marine chosen as chairman, served one two-year term
from 2005 to 2007, but was not
renominated by then-Defense
Secretary Robert Gates because
the Pentagon chief feared a long,
difficult Senate hearing focusing
on the sharp divisions over the
Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.,
chairman of the Senate Armed
Services Committee, wouldn’t
confirm the selection Monday,
but he gave the choice a thumbsup ΓÇö a critical factor for an
administration that doesn’t want
to go through a drawn-out
Senate confirmation process.
Dunford’s most visible role
came in 2013 when he was chosen to take over the job as top
U.S. military commander in
Afghanistan. During his 18
months there, Dunford oversaw
the ongoing drawdown of U.S.
troops, the transition to Afghan
military lead in combat operations, and the tumultuous
Afghan elections that dragged on
and stalled efforts to reach an
agreement on the U.S. military’s
future presence in the country.
He left Afghanistan last
August, preparing to take on his
new role as commandant.

Iraq sends troops to key refinery amid heavy clashes with IS
BAGHDAD
(AP)
—
Reinforcements are being
rushed to the key Beiji refinery
in northern Iraq amid heavy
fighting with Islamic State militants who have been trying to
capture the facility for months,
Iraqi officials said Tuesday.
But Brig. Gen. Saad Maan, a
spokesman for the Interior
Ministry, denied during his
appearance on state television
that the Islamic State group
had taken over major parts of
the refinery, the country’s
largest, as some Iraqi media
reported.
Aside from its commercial
significance, Beiji is on the
road to Mosul, Iraq’s second
largest city and the main center
of the Islamic State’s power in
Iraq. If Iraqi forces hope to
eventually take back Mosul,
they have to secure Beiji — the
scene of stubborn fighting for
months.
Ammar Hikmat, the deputy
governor
for
Salahuddin
province where the refinery is
located, told The Associated
Press that the troops holding
the refinery have been battered
since Monday by a wave of sui-
cide bombings carried out by
armored vehicles packed with
explosives.
The government has several
times said the refinery was
under control, but militants
have repeatedly counterattacked.
A spokesman for the provincial government, Adel alSamaraie, said militants are in
control of at least half the refinery and are seeking to cut the
main supply line to the embattled troops holding the rest.
“They are advancing and taking over many areas,” al-
Samaraie told The Associated
Press in a phone interview,
referring to the militants.
Iraqi state television devoted
an hour-long program Tuesday
to assert that the refinery was
still in government hands.
Maan asserted that “it is impossible for the militants to take
over the refinery.”
In recent days, the Iraqi government has decried what it
describes as a propaganda war
by the Islamic State to exaggerate their advances. The extremist group, which has taken large
parts of the north and west of
the country, has issued statements online that it has control
of most of the refinery.
The Iraqi government said
Tuesday that a joint force of
federal police and militias,
known as popular mobilization
units, are working to clear the
road to the refinery. Beiji is
north of Tikrit, which was
retaken by Iraqi forces last
month.
Reflecting the intensity of the
fighting in the area, eight of the
22 airstrikes carried out
Tuesday by U.S.-led coalition
forces against the Islamic State
were around Beiji.
In Baghdad, a car bomb
exploded in the central Karrada
commercial area killing six people, according to police and
medical officials. The area
where the car exploded included restaurants, shops and a
Sunni mosque. The officials
spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not
authorized to release the information.
Baghdad, especially Karrada,
which is popular for families at
night, has been pounded by car
bombs over the last few weeks.

April 25 earthquake in Kathmandu, Nepal, Tuesday. Nepal is one of the world’s poorest nations, and its
economy, largely based on tourism, has been crippled by the earthquake, which left thousands dead.
Nepali police dig bodies
from village and trekking route
KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) —
Rescuers were digging Tuesday
through thousands of tons of
earth from a quake-triggered
mudslide in Nepal that wiped out
an entire village along a popular
Himalayan trekking route and
killed at least 60 people.
Nine of the victims recovered
in the Langtang Valley since the
April 25 earthquake and mudslide were foreign trekkers, said
Gautam Rimal, the top government official in the Rasuwa district. Villagers say as many as
200 people could have been
killed.
The valley and its little village
of Langtang are about 60 kilometers (35 miles) north of Nepal’s
capital, Kathmandu. It was a
popular stop for trekkers
because of its scenic views of the
Himalayas.
“The entire village was wiped
out by the mudslide. There were
some 60 houses there, but they
were all buried under rubble. It
will be impossible to recover all
the bodies,” Rimal said.
The village is now about a twoday hike from the nearest town
because the landslide has
blocked area roads. While heli-
copters allow easy access, they
remain in short supply because
of aid missions across the
quake-affected parts of Nepal.
The still-rising death toll from
the quake, Nepal’s worst in more
than 80 years, has reached more
than 7,500.
In Kathmandu, authorities say
up to one-third of the city’s residents have left since the quake.
In the first days, bus stations
were jammed with people fearing
aftershocks or trying to get home
to relatives in devastated villages.
Authorities do not know how
many of those people have
returned to the capital, but on
Tuesday there were still people
waiting for buses to leave.
“I stayed back here to help out
my neighbors and clean up the
neighborhood,” said Surya
Singh, who was at a large bus
station. But now he wants to see
the damage in his home village
— though with many roads still
blocked by landslides he was
unsure if he could get all the way
by bus.
Kathmandu police say nearly
900,000 people have left in the
past 10 days. The population of
Kathmandu valley — including
the city of Kathmandu and
smaller towns of Lalitpur and
Bhaktapur — is 2.5 million people.
Life has been slowly returning
to normal in Kathmandu.
Schools are to remain closed
until May 14 but some markets
are open and trucks have been
bringing in fresh food and vegetables every day.
As the task of rebuilding looms
for the impoverished nation, foreign aid is expected to play a big
role.
On
Tuesday,
USAID
announced $11 million in aid for
emergency shelter materials,
medical supplies, safe drinking
water, improved sanitation and
hygiene kits for the most critical
districts.
The American aid agency’s
acting administrator, Alfonso
Lenhardt, is in Nepal visiting
earthquake-hit areas. He said
the additional aid brought the
total U.S. commitment to about
$26 million.
Since the earthquake, the U.S.
has sent several airplanes with
relief materials and rescue workers.
Save the Children: Dozens
feared dead in migrant tragedy
CATANIA, Sicily (AP) — The
Save the Children aid group
reported another Mediterranean
migrant tragedy Tuesday, with
survivors saying “dozens” of
their fellow passengers fell out of
their rubber boat and likely
drowned as a rescue vessel
neared.
Save the Children’s Giovanna
di Benedetto said the exact toll
wasn’t known. But she said that
survivors, in their first interviews with aid officials, reported
that many people fell into the
sea and couldn’t swim after their
boat either deflated or experienced difficulty.
The incident is believed to
have occurred on Sunday in the
sea between Libya and Sicily
when a commercial vessel, the
Zeran, approached the rubber
boat to rescue the migrants. The
survivors were brought to
Catania on Tuesday.
The weekend saw a dramatic
increase in rescues as smugglers in Libya took advantage of
calm seas and warm weather to
send thousands of would-be
refugees
out
into
the
Mediterranean in overloaded
rubber boats and fishing vessels. The coast guard reported
that nearly 7,000 people were
rescued in the three days ending
Sunday.
The deaths come on top of the
estimated 800 migrants who are
believed to have drowned last
month when their boat capsized
off Libya with hundreds of passengers locked in the hold by
smugglers. A few days earlier, a
further 400 people were feared
drowned in another capsizing.
After
the
deaths,
the
European Union held an emergency summit and agreed to
contribute more boats and
patrol aircraft to Mediterranean
rescue efforts.
Even with the increased EU
response, commercial cargo
ships are increasingly being
called on by Italy’s coast guard
to respond to migrants in need,
as required by the law of the
sea.
Catania prosecutor Giovanni
Salvi complained last month
that sometimes these commercial crews aren’t trained or
equipped to conduct rescues
and that lives can be lost when
migrants suddenly shift places
on their unseaworthy boats as
they try to get off.
Salvi later backtracked and
praised the work and commitment of the commercial vessel
King Jacob, which had come to
the aid of the boat in which the
800 passengers were trapped in
the hull and capsized during the
rescue.
In addition to commercial vessels, aid groups are pitching in:
The Phoenix, a 130-foot refitted
yacht, arrived in Pozzallo, Sicily,
on Tuesday with 369 mostly
Eritrean migrants who were rescued by the crew of the Migrant
Offshore Aid Station.
MOAS was founded in 2013
by a Maltese-based AmericanItalian family and now works
with Italian search and rescue
authorities to locate and provide
first aid to migrants in need.
The 20-member crew includes a
team from Doctors Without
Borders.
The arrivals are stretching
Italy’s
already
overtaxed
migrant reception centers, with
new arrivals being sent inland
to be screened for asylum or in
many cases, to continue on
their journeys north unofficially.
“We are about to reach the
limit of our capacity to accommodate them,” said the Rev.
Vincenzo Federico, director of
the Caritas Catholic aid group in
Salerno, where 652 migrants
from Ghana, Nigeria and
Gambia arrived on Tuesday
aboard the Italian navy ship
Bettica.
Volunteers and medical personnel at the port donned medical garb to welcome the
migrants because many are suffering from scabies. MOAS
reported it also treated some
migrants for injuries suffered
during beatings and attacks — a
reference to the violent treatment the migrants suffer in
Libya at the hands of their
smugglers.

and end decades of war in the
African country. He is the first top
U.S. diplomat ever to visit
Somalia.
Kerry arrived at Mogadishu’s
airport shortly before noon local
time, greeted by Somalia’s president and prime minister on the
tarmac. He held a series of meetings that included both of them
along with regional leaders and
civil society groups, before flying
back to Kenya a little more than
three hours later.
“More than 20 years ago, the
United States was forced to pull
back from your country,” Kerry
said in a video address to the
Somali people, invoking the “Black
Hawk Down” debacle when Somali
militiamen shot down two U.S.
helicopters. “Now we are returning
in collaboration with the international community and bearing
high hopes but also mixed with
ongoing concerns.”
The trip was made under tight
security conditions. Somalia’s government only found out a day ago
that Kerry would join the State
Department’s top Africa official,
Linda Greenfield-Thomas, on the
trip. And the fact that he was only
dipping his toe in Somalia, and
not venturing past the airport,
highlighted just how dangerous
and unstable the country
remains.
“The next time I come, we have
to be able to just walk downtown,”
Kerry told Somali President
Hassan
Sheikh
Mohamud.
Downtown, Mohamud replied, “is
very different now.”
Top of the agenda was the fight
against al-Shabab. African forces
and U.S. drone strikes have crippled the organization’s leadership
in recent years and left the
extremists without much of the
territory they once controlled or
the cash flows needed to reverse
their losses.
But as al-Shabab has decentralized, the militants in some
ways have become even more dangerous, expanding their activities
in Kenya and other neighboring
countries. Last month’s massacre
at Kenya’s Garissa University
College killed 148 people, mostly
students, and underscored the
group’s capacity to carry out relatively
unsophisticated
but
extremely deadly terrorist attacks
far from its bases of operations.
