Wanted, part-time: a hermit. No experience necessary. Roman Catholic church officials in Saalfelden, Austria, are seeking someone “at peace with himself” to live in a hermitage built into the cliffs nearby. The church wants someone with a Christian outlook to greet visiting pilgrims. But it’s not a dream job. The hermitage has no heat or running water, so it’s uninhabitable in winter. And the position is unpaid, although rent is free. (AP)

Inauguration voice gets a gig after ouster Charlie Brotman will be helping to announce the inauguration with NBC4.
Protest seems to have won the bus battle DEBBIE DOXZON
THE DISTRICT Charlie Brotman, 89, has once again secured a gig to commentate on the inaugural parade. The mostly retired broadcaster was crushed last week when he learned he wouldn’t be announcing the inauguration parade, just as he has done every time since President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s second term in 1957. The Trump team decided on someone else for the job, and said they wanted to instead honor Brotman as “Announcer Chairman Emeritus.” Brotman said he got offers to be a parade commentator from a handful of television stations after his story made news. He’s decided to work that day for the D.C. region’s NBC station, NBC4. “Now, I’m all young and excited again,” Brotman said. “It’s a new day. Instead of talking to a few thousand people, I’m talking to a few million people.” A spokesman for the station
said Brotman would be part of its inauguration coverage, and would draw from his extensive presidential and parade knowledge to entertain viewers. “Given Charlie Brotman’s long history in Washington and unparalleled experience with Inaugural parades celebrating presidents in both parties, we have invited him to be part of our Inauguration coverage on January 20,” the station spokesperson wrote in an email. “Charlie will provide his unique insights that people in Washington have
enjoyed for many decades.” Brotman, a Washington native, was an announcer for the old Washington Senators baseball team. He said he is honored by the Trump inauguration committee’s recognition of his work, though won’t be able to attend because of his NBC commitment. “I was down, I was disappointed and I thought I would be doing it for the next 100 years,” Brotman said. “Now I’m not thinking about the old news, I’m only thinking about good news.” PERRY STEIN (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Far more buses have applied to secure parking throughout the city for the Women’s March on Washington the day after the inauguration than for the inauguration itself, D.C. Council member Charles Allen said Thursday. Allen said at least 1,200 buses have applied for permits to park at RFK Stadium on Jan. 21, the day of the Women’s March, while 200 have applied for parking on Inauguration Day. RFK has a capacity of 1,300 buses. RFK is the main city-run parking option for charter buses over that weekend. (TWP)

BALTIMORE Six children were killed in a massive house fire in northeast Baltimore early Thursday, while their mother and three of her other children were able to escape the blaze but were injured, a fire official said. All six bodies have been recovered from the home and everyone has been accounted for, said fire department spokesman Chief Roman Clark. Earlier Thursday, Clark said the presumed dead were two boys, ages 9 months and 2 years; 3-year-old twin girls; and two girls, ages 10 and 11. Clark said investigators at the scene had been awaiting recovery of the last body before they begin searching for clues about the fire’s cause. Firefighters encountered heavy flames coming from all three floors of the home when they answered the call about 12:30 a.m. Thursday, and they attacked the blaze from outside, Clark said. The third floor collapsed and the second floor partially collapsed.
A fire department spokesman says six bodies have been recovered from a massive fire in northeast Baltimore.
The children’s mother and two boys, ages 4 and 5, are in critical condition at a hospital. Clark said an 8-year-old girl who helped rescue her younger brothers was in “good shape.” William Malone said all nine are his children with Katie Malone, who’s a staff member for Rep. Elijah Cummings’ district office. William Malone said he was not home at the time of the fire because he was at work.

The Obama legacy Few presidents have entered the White House carrying as many expectations as Barack Obama. The first black president and the first of his generation, Obama arrived promising to end wars, restore economic stability, improve health care, expand equality, reimagine our politics and, yes, bring new hope and change. After eight years, what did he achieve? (AP) ALEX WONG (GETTY IMAGES)
When Obama entered the White House, he had one essential task: piece together the shards of a shattered U.S. economy. It wasn’t smooth and it wasn’t fast. But he will leave behind, in many ways, an economy far stronger than the one he inherited. Unemployment is at 4.7 percent, just up from its recent nine-year low. Stocks keep setting highs. Some 20 million more Americans have health insurance coverage. Yet it’s also an economy that left many people feeling neglected. Polling after November’s election found that nearly twothirds of voters described the economy as “not so good” or “poor.” The costs of housing, college and prescription drugs kept outpacing paychecks. The gap between the economy’s overall health and Americans’ lingering anxieties cuts to the heart of Obama’s legacy.
Obama ushered in a new era of diplomacy, re-establishing the U.S. as the driving force behind fighting climate change and reducing the threat of nuclear weapons. He restored unity between the U.S. and its allies after the divisive tenure of President George W. Bush and avoided adding another large-scale U.S. military commitment overseas. But Obama ultimately couldn’t deliver on the founding promise of his presidency: ending wars. He failed to end the conflicts he inherited in Iraq and Afghanistan, settling instead for greatly reducing U.S. involvement in each. And he will pass on the woes of a raging civil war in Syria. Historians are certain to grapple with whether Obama’s forward-looking diplomatic achievements, like the Iran nuclear deal and rapprochement with Cuba, will outweigh his failings.
In boasting about his tenure, Obama often cites 15 million new jobs, a low unemployment rate and 74 months of consecutive job growth. But one number you won’t hear: more than 1,030 seats. That’s the number of spots in state legislatures, governor’s mansions and Congress lost by Democrats during Obama’s presidency. After this year’s elections, Democrats hold the governor’s office and both legislative chambers in just five states; Republicans have the trifecta in 25. The defeats have left the party with limited power and a thin bench to challenge a GOP majority eager to undo many of Obama’s policies. The president’s party almost always loses seats in midterm elections, but experts say Obama’s tenure has marked the greatest number of losses under any president in decades.

Have a favorable opinion of the president, and 52 percent say he has been a great or good president.
The Obamas attend an election night rally in Chicago on Nov. 4, 2008.
The White House was illuminated with rainbow colors to commemorate the Supreme Court’s June 26, 2015, ruling to legalize same-sex marriage.
Obama entered the White House a living symbol, breaking a color line that stood for 220 years. But his racial legacy is complicated. Supporters say he ushered in criminal justice reforms that helped minorities, protected hundreds of thousands of immigrants from deportation, and appointed racially diverse leaders to key jobs. But Obama also frustrated some who believe he didn’t speak out quickly or forcefully enough on race. And his presidency did not usher in racial harmony. Mounting tensions over police shootings of African-Americans prompted protests in several cities and the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement. It took more than two centuries for America to elect a black president. It will take many years after he leaves office to sort out what it all meant.
Obama ruled as America’s pop culture president. His two terms played out like a running chronicle of the trends of our times: slowjamming the news with Jimmy Fallon, reading mean tweets with Jimmy Kimmel, filling out his NCAA basketball bracket on ESPN. And Michelle Obama matched the president moment for moment. It wasn’t just frivolity. The Obamas turned niche pop culture platforms to serious ends. On the “Tonight Show,” she pushed exercise by challenging Fallon to a sack race in the East Room. And the president turned up on “Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis” to get millennials to sign up for his healthcare law. The benefits of Obama’s affinity for pop culture were clear: Hollywood’s brightest stars stepped up to amplify his message and raise money for his causes.
The first American president of the social media age has for years been breaking ground on how politicians connect with a digitally savvy electorate. Obama has used social media as a tool to educate, to amuse, to spin and, undoubtedly, to shape his legacy. And judging by his successor’s Twitter account, it’s one of the few legacies he’s leaving that President-elect Donald Trump has embraced. The year Obama came into office, the White House joined Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Vimeo, iTunes and MySpace. In 2013, the first lady posted her first photo to Instagram. In 2015, the president sent his first tweet from @POTUS, an account that now has 11 million followers. White House officials say presidents, with very rare exceptions, can no longer rely on a single method for communicating their message.
Many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans consider Obama — among all U.S. presidents — the greatest champion of their rights. While Obama drew flak in his first term from impatient, skeptical activists who viewed him as too cautious, the pace of his actions steadily accelerated. In December 2010, he signed legislation enabling gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military. In 2011, he directed government agencies to combat LGBT rights abuses internationally. And on a June night in 2015, the White House bathed in rainbow colors to celebrate the Supreme Court decision allowing same-sex marriage nationwide — a signature moment of Obama’s presidency. Throughout his two terms, Obama found ways to support the LGBT community — even when Congress was in partisan deadlock.
Say Obama has been able to keep his promise to unite the country, while 32 percent say he kept his campaign promises in general.
Say they are personally better off now compared to when Obama first entered the White House in 2009; 46 percent think the country is better off as a whole.
African-Americans who say Obama made things better for black people, while 49 percent say they see no difference. Six percent say Obama has made things worse.

Breaking with Trump Nominees Mattis and Pompeo offer opinions that differ from president-elect’s GOP takes first steps to repeal Obamacare
MANUEL BALCE CENETA AND J. SCOTT APPLEWHITE (AP)
POLITICS Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, Donald Trump’s pick to be the next defense secretary, placed Russia first among the principal threats facing the United States, arguing in his Senate confirmation hearing Thursday for greater American support for European allies to counter what he said were Moscow’s attempts to “break” the NATO alliance. Mattis, a revered combat leader who made his name in the wars following the Sept. 11 attacks, cautioned that sustained cuts to military budgets and personnel meant the U.S. military is no longer strong enough to easily outmatch Russia and other adversaries. As some of the presidentelect’s other cabinet picks come under intense questioning in their own confirmation hearings, the 66-year-old former officer encountered virtually no challenges from members of the Senate Armed Services Committee regarding his suitability for the top Pentagon job. Shortly after the three-hour hearing ended, the committee voted 24-3 to waive a measure requiring defense secretaries to have been out of military service for seven years. Mattis retired in 2013. The full Senate and House must vote on that measure. Mattis’ comments suggested some differences in viewpoint with the president-elect, who has repeatedly questioned longstanding military alliances and signaled a willingness to embrace Russian President Vladimir Putin. Although Mattis’ hawkish views on the danger from Iran appear to coincide with Trump’s, he voiced support Thursday for leaving President Obama’s nuclear deal with Tehran intact.
Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, left, and Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., had confirmation hearings Thursday.
“I think it is in an imperfect arms control agreement — it’s not a friendship treaty,” Mattis said. “But when America gives her word, we have to live up to it and work with our allies.” Another nominee for a crucial national security position, Rep Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., also had a confirmation hearing Thursday. Some of his views differed from those of the president-elect. Pompeo, nominated to be CIA director, told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he would not be afraid to disagree with his boss. He said he would “absolutely not” comply with any orders from Trump to resume the use of enhanced interrogation techniques, such as waterboarding, in the war on terrorism. During the campaign, Trump mulled resuming those methods. Pompeo’s hearing comes on the heels of Trump launching a broadside at the intelligence
Carson says he can do it Politician and retired surgeon Ben Carson defended his credentials Thursday to be secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, which has 8,300 employees and a $48 billion budget.

to smear him. Trump also has been skeptical of the intelligence report that Russia acted covertly to try to influence the presidential election in Trump’s favor. Pompeo said he accepts the findings in the intelligence assessment. “Everything I’ve seen suggests to me that the report has an analytical product that is sound,” he said. As head of the CIA, Pompeo would be responsible for bringing to Trump intelligence assessments the president may find politically unappealing, including additional information on Russia’s interference with the American democratic process. Pompeo promised he wouldn’t hesitate to do so. “My obligation as director of CIA is to tell every policymaker the facts as best the intelligence agency has developed them,” Pompeo said.

POLITICS Congress is poised to complete its initial step toward dismantling President Barack Obama’s health-care law, but Republicans are divided over how to replace it and face pressure from Donald Trump for quick action. By a near party-line 51-48 vote Thursday, the GOP-run Senate approved a budget motion that eases the way for action on subsequent repeal legislation as soon as next month. The Republicancontrolled House planned to complete its budget today. At a news conference Wednesday, the president-elect promised his administration would quickly reveal a plan to repeal the so-called Obamacare program and replace it. Passage of Thursday’s measure would permit some follow-up legislation to escape the threat of a filibuster by Senate Democrats. However, for many elements of a new healthcare law, Republicans are likely to need 60 votes and therefore Democratic support. “This will be a thoughtful, step-by-step process,” House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis. (above), said Thursday. But increasing numbers of Republicans have expressed anxiety over obliterating the law without a replacement to show voters. “We’re loading a gun here,” said Rep. Tom MacArthur, R-N.J. “I want to know where it’s pointed before we start the process.” ANDREW TAYLOR (AP)

3,500 U.S. troops arrive to warm Polish welcome
Obama administration ends ‘wet foot, dry foot’
The U.S. military in Afghanistan said Thursday that its investigation into a November firefight with the Taliban in northern Kunduz province has shown that 33 civilians died in the raid, during which U.S. troops fired on Afghan homes. The probe followed claims that civilian deaths resulted from airstrikes called in to support Afghan and U.S. forces who came under fire in the province’s village of Buz-e Kandahari. The raid had targeted and killed two senior Taliban commanders responsible for violence in Kunduz the previous month. In addition to the civilian deaths, 27 civilians were wounded.
American soldiers entered Poland on Thursday, fulfilling a dream some Poles have had since the fall of communism in 1989 to have U.S. troops on their soil as a deterrent against Russia. The 3,500 U.S. troops will be based in the city of Zagan. Some residents waved and held up American flags as the troops rolled by. Poland’s prime minister and defense minister will welcome them in a ceremony Saturday. The troops’ arrival marks the first-ever continuous deployment to the region by a NATO ally, and comes as part of a commitment by President Barack Obama to protect a region that is nervous about Russia.

President Obama, in one of his last foreign policy initiatives, said Thursday he has ended the “wet-foot, dry-foot” policy that has allowed Cubans reaching U.S. soil to stay and automatically become eligible for American residency, while those intercepted at sea are sent home. Obama’s statement said that, effective immediately, Cuban migrants will now be treated “the same way we treat migrants from other countries.” Cuba has often complained about the long-standing policy, saying it encouraged illegal trafficking and endangered the lives of those in unseaworthy vessels.

FBI faces review in Clinton case POLITICS The Justice Department inspector general will review broad allegations of misconduct involving the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email practices and the bureau’s decision just before the election to announce the probe had resumed, the inspector general announced Thursday. The probe will be wide ranging — encompassing the FBI’s various public statements on the matter, whether its deputy director should have been recused and whether FBI or other Justice Department employees leaked nonpublic information, according to a news release from Inspector General Michael Horowitz. L aw m a ker s a nd ot h er s had called previously for the

inspector general to look into the FBI’s pre-election actions regarding the Clinton case, alleging that FBI Director James Comey bucked long-standing policies with his communications about the case and that information seemed to have leaked inappropriately. Horowitz said in the news release that he will explore those topics and more, though he will
not re-litigate whether anyone should have faced charges. The FBI’s probe into whether Clinton mishandled classified information by using a private server when she was secretary of state has long been controversial. Comey on Oct. 28 — after previously announcing that he was recommending no charges in the case — sent a letter to congressional leaders telling
them that agents had resumed the Clinton probe after finding potentially relevant information in an unrelated case. The day before, senior Justice Department leaders had warned Comey not to send the letter, because it violated two long-standing department policies — discussing an ongoing investigation and taking any overt action so close to an election. Comey sent a second letter to Congress just days before the election, saying that the investigation was complete and he was not changing the July decision. Clinton has blamed the renewed FBI inquiry for blunting her momentum in the final weeks of the presidential election. Horowitz wrote that he also will explore “allegations that Department and FBI employees improperly disclosed nonpublic information.” MATT ZAPOTOSKY AND SARI HORWITZ (THE WASHINGTON POST)

EPA accuses Fiat Chrysler of breaking rule ENVIRONMENT The U.S. government accused Fiat Chrysler on Thursday of failing to disclose software in some of its pickups and SUVs with diesel engines that allows them to emit more pollution than allowed under the Clean Air Act. The Environmental Protection Agency issued a “notice of violation” to the company that covers about 104,000 vehicles with 3-liter diesel engines. The vehicles include the 2014 through 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram pickups. Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne denied wrongdoing, saying the EPA was blowing the issue out of proportion. “We will defend our behavior in the right environment,” he said. Marchionne said he was told by company lawyers that the Justice Department is investigating the company along with the EPA, raising the likelihood of an ongoing criminal probe. He said the company halted production of Grand Cherokees and Rams with diesel engines in September, but will continue to sell models manufactured before then that remain on dealers’ lots. Marchionne said the company will present its case to the incoming Trump administration. “We will work with the new leadership to get this issue through,” he said. The EPA intensified testing after Volkswagen was caught in a 2015 cheating scandal involving its “Clean Diesel” line. TOM KRISHER AND MICHAEL BIESECKER (AP)

Led by Hall of Fame coach Sid Gillman, the Chargers won their only championship with a 51-10 win over the visiting Boston Patriots in the AFL title game at Balboa Stadium.
Seahawks (11-5-1) at Falcons (11-5)
Texans (10-7) at Patriots (14-2)
Steelers (12-5) at Chiefs (12-4)
Packers (11-6) at Cowboys (13-3)

Seattle’s task: Take Julio Jones out of the game. Despite missing two games with a toe injury, he was second in the league with 1,409 yards receiving this season. He had 139 yards and a touchdown in a loss to Seattle earlier this season. It sure looked like Richard Sherman got away with pass interference to break up a late pass to Jones and preserve a 26-24 win. Can Seattle stop him legally?
Houston’s task: Outcoach the man in the hoodie. The Texans’ coaching staff is littered with Bill Belichick’s proteges, including coach Bill O’Brien. The divide between Houston’s staff and New England’s old standby was never more evident than on Sept. 22, when the Pats blanked the Texans 27-0 with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback. Can Houston sneak anything past Belichick when he’s had a bye week to prepare?
PIttsburgh’s task: Rein in Tyreek Hill. Chiefs coach Andy Reid has always had a way with small and speedy weapons. In his rookie season, Hill has hurt opponents from all over the field. He’s scored six touchdowns from his primary position at receiver, run in another three touchdowns and busted into the end zone on two punt returns and one kick return. The Steelers rank 30th in average kick return yards allowed (24.7) and 24th in punt return yards (9.6).
Green Bay’s task: Hold rookie Ezekiel Elliott under 80 yards rushing. The Cowboys’ workhorse led the NFL with 1,631 yards rushing on a league-high 322 carries, 23 more than New England’s LeGarrette Blount. He’s been held to fewer than 80 yards on the ground just once this season in a Week 1 loss to the Giants. He ran for 157 yards in a 30-16 win at Green Bay in October.
Atlanta’s task: Light up Seattle’s defense. Yes, the Falcons are high-powered and balanced on offense. They rank No. 2 in total offense, third in passing yards and fifth in rushing. But Atlanta is 1-4 in the playoffs with Matt Ryan under center. Seattle ranks third in scoring defense (18.2 ppg) and is proven in the postseason. Pick: Falcons 23, Seahawks 20
New England’s task: Neutralize Houston’s bookends. The Texans’ outside linebackers, both firstround picks, had a field day against Oakland. Jadeveon Clowney picked off a pass that led to a short touchdown and a 10-0 lead last week. Whitney Mercilus made seven tackles with two sacks. Pick: Patriots 21, Texans 9
Kansas City’s task: Immobilize Ben Roethlisberger. The burly quarterback made his name shaking off tacklers and throwing on the run. He has said a recent foot injury won’t be a problem. In six games against the Chiefs, he’s 5-1 with a 118.7 passer rating.
Dallas’ task: Keep the ball away from Randall Cobb. Jordy Nelson is questionable with a rib injury, and Cobb is coming off his best game of the season. He hooked up with Aaron Rodgers for 116 yards and three touchdowns against the Giants. Dallas has its work cut out for it with the league’s 26th-ranked pass defense.
Pick: Steelers 38, Chiefs 33
Pick: Packers 42, Cowboys 34

Rams nab Redskins’ McVay 30-year-old coordinator is youngest to be hired as an NFL head coach
Tough Terps develop edge in past two wins
TONI L. SANDYS (THE WASHINGTON POST)
LOS ANGELES Sean McVay will become the next head coach of the Los Angeles Rams, the team announced Thursday, a day after he met with Los Angeles for his second interview. McVay, 30, will be the youngest head coach in NFL history, surpassing Lane Kiffin when he was hired by the Raiders at 31 years old in 2007. McVay will turn 31 on Jan. 24. Despite his age, McVay has been widely regarded as a bright offensive mind. The Redskins finished third in total offense this season, averaging 403.4 yards per game, and 12th in scoring, producing 24.8 points per contest, during McVay’s third season as offensive coordinator. He spent seven seasons in Washington, quickly climbing the ranks from assistant tight ends coach (2010) and tight ends coach (2011-13) under Mike Shanahan to offensive coordinator in 2014 during Jay Gruden’s first season as coach. McVay comes from a football background as his grandfather, John, was the head coach of the

Giants from 1976 to 1978 and became the general manager for the 49ers the following year. John McVay played an integral role in San Francisco’s five Super Bowls during the 1980s and 1990s. Sean McVay also interviewed with the 49ers on Monday for their vacant head coaching position. Instead, he will now receive the opportunity to mold quarterback Jared Goff, who was the first overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.
New bag of clubs working for McIlroy in South Africa
Assault charges dropped for Steelers’ Joey Porter
Rory McIlroy made an impressive start to 2017 with a new set of clubs, making seven birdies and shooting a 5-under 67 on Thursday at the SA Open in Johannesburg to put himself a stroke off the first-round lead. With Nike no longer making golf clubs and balls, McIlroy has been testing out woods, irons and a putter from other manufacturers. Trevor Fisher Jr. and Keith Horne shared the lead at 66. (AP)
A Pennsylvania district attorney said he’ll drop all but two minor charges against Pittsburgh assistant coach Joey Porter after reviewing video of his altercation with a bar bouncer and a police officer Sunday. According to the district attorney, video evidence supports only disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. Aggravated and simple assault charges are being dropped. (AP)
McVay will take over for Jeff Fisher, who was fired by the Rams on Dec. 12 with a 31-45-1 record in five seasons. According to AP, McVay is expected to assemble a veteran staff and has been linked to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, 69, who helped Denver win the Super Bowl last year. Meanwhile, the Redskins need to find McVay’s replacement just a week after they fired defensive coordinator Joe Barry.
One internal candidate could be Bill Callahan, the offensive line coach who has seven years’ experience as an NFL offensive coordinator and two as a head coach. If the Redskins want to look externally, former Chargers coach Mike McCoy would be an intriguing candidate. He was recently fired after going 27-37 in four seasons with the team.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL The emotion and defensive prowess Maryland’s men’s basketball team has played with recently has folded into a narrative that’s been forming since a meltdown loss to Nebraska on New Year’s Day. “The last two games,” coach Mark Turgeon said, “we’ve played with much more toughness. I think the slap in the face, the Nebraska game, kind of woke us all up.” After winning on the road at Michigan and at home against Indiana, Maryland plays Saturday at Illinois (6 p.m., ESPN2). On Tuesday night against Indiana, guard Melo Trimble sacrificed his body just 65 seconds into the game, stepping in front of Hoosiers guard James Blackmon as he bull-rushed the basket. After Blackmon was called for a charge, Trimble let out a primal roar. Later in the first half, he did it again after drawing another offensive foul against forward OG Anunoby, who outweighs Trimble by at least 40 pounds. Those were the kind of raw plays that defined Maryland’s 75-72 victory, beginning with Trimble and senior center Damonte Dodd, who tied a career-high with six blocks and helped anchor the Terrapins’ frontcourt. Dodd played with confidence and stayed out of foul trouble, helping hold Indiana center Thomas Bryant to six points and Anunoby to five points. ROMAN STUBBS (TWP)

How to host the most
Be a snow know-it-all
Are you and your home ready for some inclement weather?
Washingtonians started getting inundated with texts months ago inquiring about places to crash during inauguration weekend. We polled several local designers for creative ideas on how to deal with large numbers of guests. JURA KONCIUS (THE WASHINGTON POST)
WEATHER PREP Last weekend’s light dusting of snow was just a warmup. Winter is here, and there’s no time like the present to get prepared. When snow descends on Washington, as is possible with dropping temperatures this weekend, residents must think about two things: public safety and their personal safety and comfort. Per the Winter Sidewalk Safety Act, D.C. property owners are responsible for clearing snow and ice from the sidewalks around their property “within the first eight hours of daylight after the storm ends,” says Department of Public Works communications director Zy Richardson. Landlords may pass this responsibility along to their tenants by writing it into the lease, but at the end of the day the property owner is responsible, and that’s who may face a $25 fine if adjacent snow and ice aren’t cleared. Those who aren’t able to clear snow and ice needn’t worry about fines — residents with disabilities and senior citizens can apply for an exemption from the city online.
Though it may be appealing to wait until the snowfall stops and get rid of it in one fell swoop, snow removal is safer when done early and often. “Typically, shoveling smaller amounts of fresh snow before it has amassed is easiest to manage,” Richardson says. She stresses that residents shouldn’t overexert themselves in the name of clearing up precipitation. Before the first flakes fall, check that your tools are in order. “If you haven’t replaced that worn-out shovel from the last blizzard, get a new one at the hardware store before a storm is predicted,” Richardson says. Logan Hardware stocks Garant plastic shovels for $19.99 — “that’s what most people use,” says Phil Smith, 31, assistant lead at the store. Be sure to also pick up sets of window scrapers and small shovels for your car ($12.99). After shoveling, it’s time for ice melt. Be careful not to sprinkle it beyond your front walkway or sidewalk, lest it kill your grass. And check that what you use is animal-safe — some
Give snow the heave-ho Shoveling snow can be a great workout, but it can also lead to injury if not done right. Note these tips from the National Safety Council before you pick up that shovel. M.D. Don’t shovel right after eating or while smoking. Only shovel fresh powder — it’s lighter. Try to push snow aside rather than lifting it. Lift from your legs so as not to hurt your back. Stop immediately if you feel any tightness in the chest or dizziness.
varieties can get stuck in furry friends’ paws or be dangerous if ingested. Smith estimates that residents will need 1 to 2 pounds of ice melt, in the form of rock salt or other chemical products, each year to keep their front walkways and sidewalks clear. Nine- and 10-pound bags of petfriendly ice melt retail for $10 to $15 from varying brands. To protect those carefully cultivated gardens for next spring,
“You can wrap certain plants in burlap to keep them safe over the winter,” Smith says. Putting down mulch will also keep soil warm. It’s not just conditions outside that residents need to prepare for. There’s plenty to get in order for spending time indoors. It’s important to fill all prescriptions and have a list of key phone numbers on hand before a storm in case of emergencies. “Keep fresh bottled water and food that does not need to be cooked on hand, along with a manual can opener,” Richardson says. Start stocking up slowly now to avoid running up against bare shelves in the days right before a storm. You’ll miss the crowded stores, and you’ll be sure to get the foods you prefer rather than whatever’s left. Once you have the proper supplies to keep your household safe inside and out, remember to grab an extra creature comfort or two. Richardson recommends keeping the kids entertained with a new board game to play after they’ve called a truce in the snowball fight. MEGAN DOWNEY (FOR EXPRESS)
Upgrade your inflatable bed: The one that Silver Spring designer Iantha Carley thinks is best of class is the Frontgate EZ Inflatable Guest Bed ($199-$269). It inflates and deflates with a push of a button. Uphold basic standards: Everyone should have their own towel, says Alexandria designer Maria Crosby Pollard. Also include a bar of soap and a washcloth. She suggests giving each guest a plastic cup with their name on it for whatever beverages they drink while bunking in. Create a sense of adventure: D.C. designer Mary Douglas Drysdale says people coming together for a shared experience can be like a big slumber party. Just manage expectations: Tell everyone in advance that they will be sharing bathrooms and maybe bedrooms, Drysdale says. Then stock up on snacks and breakfast foods and count your spare keys.

Not even Ben Affleck and Sienna Miller’s cute hats can give this Prohibition film the pizazz it needs.
A ghost of Prohibition Despite its ambition, Affleck’s fourth directorial foray can’t overcome its mediocrity FILM REVIEW “Live by Night” — which, like Affleck’s “Gone Baby Gone” and “The Town,” is based on a story by Dennis Lehane — is precisely the kind of stylish, mature film most of us wish Hollywood would make more of. At the same time, “Live by Night” has so much going for it that it’s difficult to tease out what, exactly, is wrong with it. Affleck plays Joe Coughlin, a World War I veteran who returns to his hometown of Boston devoid of any moral code other than self-interested survival. The son of a well-connected policeman (Brendan Gleeson), Joe’s a natural candidate for membership in the local Irish mob. But he’s not a joiner, preferring to pull easy, modestly lucrative
bank and poker-game heists with his Italian partner Dion (Chris Messina). Joe’s refusal to pledge allegiance to either tribe is complicated, as these stories tend to be, by the presence of a woman — in this case, a jazz-baby played by Sienna Miller with a mantle of class resentment as thick as her Irish brogue. Joe eventually finds himself in the west coast of Florida, where he seeks his fortune in bootleg rum and a burgeoning casino business on Longboat Key. Attracted to the region’s pluralistic culture, Joe becomes the unofficial mayor of Tampa. The only question is whether his undoing will come by way of his criminal activities, his gangland rivals, the perorations of a newly minted evangelical

preacher (Elle Fanning), her sheriff father (Chris Cooper) or an emboldened Ku Klux Klan. Shot in rich amber tones, “Live by Night” looks terrific, and Affleck is as proficient as ever with crime-driven action, including shootouts, old-timey car chases and some spirited nightclub
scenes. If he doesn’t bring much zing to the role of Joe, he fills out the suit with convincing, squareshouldered heft. The visual and performative elements are polished enough in “Live by Night,” but ultimately, it lacks any sense of urgency. Affleck gives himself one or two important speeches about immigrants, intolerance and the American Way, but never elevates a basic plot into a truly compelling story. Somber and admirably ambitious, “Live by Night” nonetheless falls short of being essential, its moving parts heading predictably toward a conclusion that feels mechanical. It’s okay, from a filmmaker who’s capable of far better. ANN HORNADAY (THE WASHINGTON POST)
‘Tale as old as time, true as it can be …’ (you know the rest) John Legend and Ariana Grande will record “Beauty and the Beast’s” titular theme song for Disney’s forthcoming live-action film. The pair will sing the song first sung by Angela Lansbury in the 1991 animated film and then recorded for the movie’s soundtrack by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson. “Beauty and the Beast,” starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, will be released March 17.

‘Monster Trucks’ PG, 104 min.
What would happen, this film asks, if a car-obsessed teenager (Lucas Till) found a cute, otherworldly creature taking refuge inside the metal body of his vintage pickup? The idea is silly, yet “Monster Trucks” is more involving than it sounds. Though the special effects strike an admirable balance between the cutesy and the creepy, it’s sheer moviemaking craft that fuels this action/family hybrid. ALAN ZILBERMAN (TWP)
‘Julieta’ R, 98 min.
After an encounter with a friend of her estranged daughter, Antia, Julieta decides to rehash the past as a way of understanding how she and Antia grew apart. Filmmaker Pedro Almodovar tells the ensuing story with suspense and captivating brio, interrogating notions of time, doppelgangers and fate with the director’s characteristically fastidious attention to detail.

KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY | THE REELIST
Real live ‘Women’: Mike Mills just lets the mystique be they are also fully realized, fully fleshed characters. Second, he recognizes that their gender is part of what defines them, and writes accordingly. Third — and this goes to his credit as a director — he gets out of his actresses’ way. In one scene, Jamie reads a feminist essay on aging to Dorothea, thinking it will resonate with her 55-year-old self. There is a pause when he’s done. “You think you understand me now?” she asks. Jamie’s confusion is clear — well, he thought he did, but no. Rather than having Dorothea deliver a monologue describing what she feels and what she thinks and, therefore, what Jamie should feel and think about Dorothea, Mills instead lets Bening’s inscrutable face carry the scene, and leaves Jamie to his own non-understanding. Mills, who has said he wrote “20th Century Women” in honor of his own single mother, makes Jamie the outsider, in that scene and throughout the film. He has created a world where the idea of “woman” and “person” are not only interchangeable, but complementary. Mills’ script doesn’t take the tired, old (incorrect) track of “not seeing gender”; instead he sees it, explores it and, most surprisingly, recognizes that a
‘Patriots Day’ builds up to a gripping apex
Often — I know, not always — male screenwriters don’t give much thought to a character’s gender. That sounds good, but sometimes it means that female characters are written simply as not-men. Women who are written with their gender as their sole defining characteristic, on the other hand, tend to exist only in relation to the men in the story. They may be objects of desire, or of ridicule, or of worship, but objects they are and objects they remain. Mike Mills, the writer-director of “20th Century Women,” takes a different tack. It’s 1979, and 15-year-old Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann) lives with his mom, Dorothea (Annette Bening), and her tenants William (Billy Crudup) and Abbie (Greta Gerwig). Neighbor Julie (Elle Fanning) semi-chastely spends most nights in Jamie’s bed, to his great frustration. This synopsis makes it seem like we’re back where we’ve so often been — all three women, after all, are united by their proximity to Jamie. So what makes Mills different? First, he writes Dorothea, Abbie and Julie as people; while all three are more than vaguely archetypal,
Julie is not a 20th-century girl and not yet a 20th-century woman.
‘20th Century Women’ (R, 118 min.) DIRECTOR: Mike Mills STARS: Annette Bening, Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig, Lucas Jade Zumann IN A NUTSHELL: A determined single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son alone enlists the help of two younger women — a free-spirited punk artist and a savvy and provocative teenage neighbor.
woman’s experience does not exist so he can “understand” it, which usually means defining it on his own terms. Through Jamie’s experience, Mills himself stands outside, looking in, and in doing so paints an extraordinarily accurate portrait of three resoundingly real women.

“I wouldn’t do another show that starred four white girls.” LENA DUNHAM, reflecting on her time making her HBO show, “Girls,” in a Nylon magazine feature. She added: “When I wrote the pilot I was 23. Each character was an extension of me. I thought I was doing the right thing.”
FX and Ryan Murphy’s “American Crime Story: Katrina” to debut in 2018
FILM REVIEW Part thriller, part documentarystyle ticktock, Peter Berg’s “Patriots Day” retells the tale of the massive manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers, using Mark Wahlberg’s Tommy Saunders as the face of the army of law enforcement officers that was mobilized after two bombs exploded near the finish line of the 2013 marathon, killing three and injuring hundreds. Wahlberg is not quite the hero of “Patriots Day,” however. Rather, as a composite character, he’s a device that helps viewers follow the search for brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (Themo Melikidze, Alex Wolff). Though Melikidze’s Tamerlan, the older sibling, is depicted as the mastermind of the bombing plot, it is Wolff’s Dzhokhar who captures the banality and the twisted evil of their actions. His performance is among the film’s most enigmatic parts. The film really kicks into high gear in the second act, powerfully evoking the feelings of dread and white-knuckle excitement that much of America no doubt felt as the manhunt progressed. After the Tsarnaevs are captured, one of Watertown’s finest taunts the suspects: “Welcome to Wattatown, motherf---ers.” It’s doubtful anyone actually said that line, but, by the time it gets delivered, you’ll probably be so far forward on the edge of your seat that you’ll believe that someone did.

That moniker sounds like something a toddler would dream up. And although the horror film of the same name is not quite as silly as that, it isn’t much better. The luckless victim at the center of the story is Elliot (Douglas Smith), a college kid who just moved into a creepy off-campus rental with his best bud, John (Lucien Laviscount), and girlfriend, Sasha (Cressida Bonas). Life seems perfect until Elliot makes the mistake of looking in the bedside table of this fully furnished haunted house. Obsessively scrawled inside the drawer is the mantra of the movie: “Don’t think it. Don’t say it.” “It” is revealed when Elliot pulls back the drawer lining to see the comically non-terrifying name. “The Bye Bye Man,” he says, out of idle curiosity, not

realizing that he has sealed his fate. As it turns out, anyone who says the name gets a visit. The Bye Bye Man is basically a fatal virus. It spreads fast when the afflicted person can’t keep his or her mouth shut. The film had a relatively modest budget, and it shows in its effects, which tend to be more funny than scary. Even a conscious effort to suspend disbelief is undone by the hammy dialogue and stilted delivery, especially from Bonas, a British actress who struggles with an American accent. Her inexperience is balanced by a cameo from veteran actress Faye Dunaway, who seems to be the only one in on the joke.
Director Stacy Title earned an Academy Award nomination for the 1993 live-action short “Down on the Waterfront,” and she reteamed with her fellow nominee, writer Jonathan Penner, for “The Bye Bye Man.” Penner adapted the script from a story by Robert Damon Schneck with a much more ominous title: “The Bridge to Body Island.” The dialogue does the story no favors, but the movie is at least smartly edited to maximize the surprise factor. It’s also not nearly as gory as most horror movies, which explains the PG-13 rating. That could open it up to a wider audience, but should it? Don’t think it. And definitely don’t see it.

The portion of movies directed by women among 2016’s 250 highestgrossing films, according to an annual report from San Diego State University’s Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film. The rate was down 2 percent from last year. Researchers found the disparity across the board. In 2016, women comprised 17 percent of all directors, writers, producers, executive producers, editors and cinematographers for the 250 top-earning films. That also is a decline of 2 percent from 2015. (AP)

SUMMARY: Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn play a mom and daughter who go on a South American vacation, and then things go wrong. It looks like it offers very few surprises — including the number of think pieces that will emerge about how you can see Schumer’s (entirely normal) belly rolls when she’s in her bikini.

SUMMARY: David Oyelowo plays the real-life Prince Seretse Khama of Botswana, who, in the 1940s, marries a white Londoner (Rosamund Pike). This does not go over well — family tensions arise, sure, but so do real geopolitical concerns. In fact, this story makes Edward VIII’s abdication so he could marry Wallis Simpson look positively unromantic. K.P.K.

@MIAAJTF tweets at “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon, who dedicated an entire program Wednesday to Michelle Obama to mark the end of her time as first lady. In one taped segment, Obama surprised ordinary people by appearing in front of them as they were recording thank-you messages to her. In another, Obama and Fallon wrote thank-you notes. “Thank you, Barack, for proving you’re not a lame duck but my very own silver fox,” Obama wrote. In his note to the first lady, Fallon wrote, “Thank you ... for bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘the right to “bare” arms.’ “

“Moral of story: Only get caught in garage door if you’re not on your 9th cat life!” @CRISPIJUANCASIS tweets about a cat named Bella, who was saved from a garage door by a deputy sheriff. The sheriff’s office of Ascension Parish, La., posted about the rescue on Facebook, saying Bella was likely sleeping on top of the garage door when the homeowner lowered it, trapping the cat in the process. Bella was unhurt.

Fill in each column, row and 3x3 box with the digits 1 through 9 without repeating any. The twist in Samurai Sudoku is that the digits that appear in the overlapping boxes must work for both puzzles. A piece of advice to get you started: Don’t focus on completing one grid at a time. Keep the whole puzzle in mind as you go, because filling in a number in one grid could give you clues to another.

Kendall fights rumors with ‘She started it!’
baby powder can be organic
Jessica Alba’s lifestyle company, The Honest Company, announced a voluntary recall of its organic baby powder Wednesday in a video posted on its website. The company told People magazine that testing revealed possible microorganism contaminations that could cause infection. People noted that the company has faced legal issues over the effectiveness and safety of its products.
Kendall Jenner explained on her app Wednesday that, despite the rumors to the contrary, she has not gotten plastic surgery. She pointed to one Snapchat posted by sister Kylie Jenner, in which many fans pointed out that her lips appeared larger than usual. “We had to hurry, so I let Ky do my face,” Jenner wrote. “I LOVED my makeup. I never say this, but I just felt so pretty. All of a sudden, photos of us came out with headlines like, ‘OMG Kendall got her lips done and got full facial reconstruction — look at her cheekbones, look at her nose!’ ” She denied the rumors. “As a model, why would I have my face reconstructed?” she said.

‘Charlie who?’ Rihanna asks while living her life On Wednesday, Charlie Sheen reignited a 2-year-old feud with Rihanna. The actor had previously sent out a tweetstorm against the singer after claiming she refused to speak to him when they were at the same restaurant. When asked about the incident on “Watch What Happens Live,” Sheen simply replied, “Oh, that b----.” (EXPRESS)
Michael Keaton said he is sorry for conflating the titles of “Hidden Figures” and “Fences” at the Golden Globes. He was introducing supporting actress nominee Octavia Spencer when he called her film “Hidden Fences.” He added that reading something discriminatory into the garble is “extraordinarily incorrect,” and that he’s a civil rights supporter.

“I had to cut it out, it was that depressing. I looked like a sick polar bear.”
“Orange Is the New Black” star Lea DeLaria announced Wednesday that she and fiancee Chelsea Fairless are ending their relationship. DeLaria edited a photo of herself with Fairless into a photo from Liza Minnelli and David Gest’s wedding. “Please exclude us from the tragic and basic celebrity breakup narrative,” DeLaria wrote. “We … will remain in each other’s lives. In fact, we look forward to finding new ways to torture each other.“ (EXPRESS)
