local Program would offer $7M to building owners to help lower emissions THE DISTRICT D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser wants to set aside $7 million in city funds next year to lend money to building owners and developers to make improvements that reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the nation’s capital. The proposal for a “green bank” would have D.C. emulate similar but larger efforts underway in Connecticut, New York and several other Democratcontrolled states. Tommy Wells, Bowser’s director of the Energy and Environment Department, said the fund would allow large building owners and those undertaking renovations to obtain affordable loans to replace aging heating,
ventilation and cooling systems — among the largest sources of carbon emissions in the city. Low-interest loans would also be available to fund more-experimental technologies, such as geothermal heating from D.C. sewer lines, he said. “We have many buildings with HVAC systems that are reaching their end-of-life cycles, and that’s a problem — 74 percent of all greenhouse gases in the city come from energy consumption of buildings,” Wells said. “How do they get good, cheap financing? With a green bank, we’re in a position to fund major renovations with high-efficiency systems.” In a statement, Bowser said the fund would allow Washington to “lead the way,” becoming the first U.S. city to have a green bank. “By creating a Green Bank, we will create more jobs for D.C. residents, which will allow us to

proposed in D.C. New York’s began with a $210 million investment and plans to grow its fund to $1 billion. Wells, however, said each dollar in D.C. public investment could leverage $5 in private financing. A department fact sheet on the program also suggests that the District could accelerate borrowing by issuing bonds that would be paid for in part with the $7 million in annual financing in Bowser’s proposal. In addition to replacing heating and cooling systems, city literature says the fund could be used to underwrite loans for rooftop solar systems with batteries to guarantee energy for building occupants. The money could also fund “District-scale infrastructure such as anaerobic digesters, microgrid infrastructure, or fuel cells.” AARON C. DAVIS

Years after scandal, new rabbi hired Georgetown synagogue saw its previous leader convicted of voyeurism THE DISTRICT Two-and-a-half years after the leader of a prominent Orthodox synagogue grievously violated his congregants’ trust by surreptitiously recording dozens of women undressing for a ritual bath, Kesher Israel is putting its trust in a rabbi again. After an extensive search, the Georgetown synagogue has hired Rabbi Hyim Shafner, its
first full-time rabbi since the arrest of Rabbi Barry Freundel in a 2014 scandal. “He seems to Shafner be a very sensitive, warm and caring individual,” Kesher president Elanit Jakabovics said of Shafner. “We knew that was going to be something that was an important quality.” Shafner, who will start his new job at Kesher this summer, comes from Bais Abraham, a smaller Orthodox synagogue of about 120 families near St. Louis.
Shafner and his wife, who also has been working in the St. Louis Jewish community, have three children in high school and college. He said he has long been interested in Orthodox Judaism that engages with the wider world — and Washington seemed the perfect place to lead a synagogue that participates in broader national conversations. “I think it gives me the opportunity to have a certain positive influence on the Jewish people that you don’t always have in St. Louis,” he said of his new job at

Kesher. “One advantage of the capital is that people in a synagogue are involved in things going on in the world. They’re working in the world. And hopefully they’re bringing their Jewish values and Jewish inspiration.” Freundel, who led Kesher since the late 1980s, was charged with voyeurism and eventually pleaded guilty to placing a camera in a Jewish ritual bath, known as a mikvah, to record images of at least 52 women. He’s now serving a 6½-year prison sentence. JULIE ZAUZMER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Spicer: Trump ‘stands by’ his wiretapping claims POLITICS White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Thursday that President Trump “stands by” his allegation that former President Barack Obama ordered wiretapping surveillance of Trump Tower last fall, despite statements from the leaders of congressional investigations that no evidence had been found to support the claim. In a remarkably combative exchange with reporters at his daily press briefing, Spicer was asked whether Trump still believes his wiretapping claims.
“He stands by it,” Spicer said, going on to assail journalists for the way they have reported on the controversy. Earlier Thursday, the Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee said their investigation into the matter so far has turned up no evidence that the U.S. government had conducted surveillance on Trump Tower in New York, either before or after the Nov. 8 election. “Based on the information available to us, we see no indications that Trump Tower was
the subject of surveillance by any element of the United States government either before or after Election Day 2016,” read the statement by Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., the committee chairman, and Sen. Mark R. Warner, D-Va. In a Fox News Channel interview on Wednesday, Trump acknowledged that he based his initial accusation on news reports that referenced wiretapping generally. H e s a i d t h a t i n fo r m a tion would soon be revealed that could prove him right. PHILIP RUCKER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Big question: Are chimps ‘persons’ too? Should a chimpanzee be treated as a person with legal rights? Animal rights lawyer Steven Wise, who has appointed himself the attorney for New York chimps Tommy and Kiko, made his arguments for just that in front of the New York Supreme Court on Thursday. Wise has been trying for years, unsuccessfully, to get courts to grant the chimps habeas corpus, or bodily liberty. It’s an argument that, if successful, could lead to revolutionary changes in legal status for animals. Courts have already granted personhood to other non-humans, such as corporations and ships, but Wise’s argument for personhood for the chimps has so far failed to convince judges. Tommy and Kiko’s keepers have spoken out against the case. (THE WASHINGTON POST/AP)

Budget slams the poor President Trump’s federal cuts would slash programs that help rural, working families POLITICS President Trump has unveiled a budget that would slash or abolish programs that have provided low-income Americans with help on virtually all fronts, including affordable housing, banking, weatherizing homes, job training, paying home heating oil bills and obtaining legal counsel. During the presidential campaign last year, Trump vowed that the solution to poverty was giving poor people incentives to work. But most of the proposed cuts in his budget target programs designed to help the working poor, as well as those who are jobless. And many of them carry out their missions by disbursing money to the states, which establish their own criteria. “This is a budget that pulled the rug out from working families and hurts the very people who President Trump promised to stand up for in rural America and in small towns,” said Melissa Boteach of the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank. The White House budget cuts will fall hardest on the rural and small-town communities that Trump won, where one in three people are living paycheck to paycheck — a rate that is 24 percent higher than in urban counties, the center has found. The budget proposes housing “reforms” that add up to more than $6 billion in cuts while promising to continue assisting the nation’s 4.5 million low-income households. If enacted, the budget would result in the most severe cut to the Department of Housing and Urban Development since the early 1980s, according to the National Low Income Housing Coalition. It would also eliminate the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness.
Trump’s budget proposal
Defense +9% ($52 billion)
This budget addresses only discretionary spending, which is set by congressional budget resolutions and makes up more than a quarter of the overall budget.
Homeland Security +7% ($2.8B) Veterans Affairs +6% ($4.4B) -1% ($0.2B) NASA -4% ($0.5B) -4% ($1.1B) -6% ($1.7B)

The reforms include eliminating funding for a $3 billion Community Development Block Grant program, one of the longest continuously run HUD programs, in existence since 1974. The program provides cities with money to address affordable housing and rehabilitating homes. It also provides funding for Meals on Wheels, a nonprofit that delivers food to seniors. Trump also plans to cut the Home Investment
THE WASHINGTON POST
Partnership Program, the largest federal grant to state and local governments designed to create affordable housing. The White House touts its cuts to what the administration characterizes as “a number of lowerpriority programs” as a way to “promote fiscal responsibility.” However, the plan kicks the financial responsibility for those programs to states and local governments.
Former Trump adviser Michael Flynn collected nearly $68K from Russian entities in 2015
Gone would be $35 million in funding for well-known programs such as Habitat for Humanity and YouthBuild USA, fair housing planning, and homeless assistance, among other housing help for needy Americans. “There is no coordinated plan for how to fulfill the same mission. Saying states, local governments and philanthropy are going to help is just passing the buck,” a HUD official said. “HUD is no different than any other domestic agency in just feeling as though these cuts are all very arbitrary and unnecessary.” Trump also plans to eliminate the $210 million now dedicated toward Community Development Financial Institutions. The program, administered through the Treasury Department, invests in community banks that provide loans and financial services to people living in distressed communities. Also on the chopping block: the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP; the Energy Department’s weatherization assistance program, which dates back to 1976, when Gerald Ford was president; the Community Services Block Grant; the Legal Services Corp., which was launched as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s war on poverty; the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children; and the Labor Department’s Job Corps and Senior Community Service Employment Program. Not everyone, though, believes the cuts will hurt the poor. Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation said the cuts cannot be evaluated in isolation when they represent less than 1 percent of the $1.1 trillion in overall spending last year. STEVEN MUFSON AND TRACY JAN (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Republicans balk at Trump’s budget plan Defense hawks, rural conservatives and even some of Donald Trump’s most vocal supporters in Congress sharply criticized the president’s first budget proposal Thursday, pushing back on the potential hike in defense spending as insufficient and decrying some other cuts to federal agencies. Capitol Hill Republicans, however, did not seem terribly worried about the prospect of such a budget being enacted. “Presidents propose, Congress disposes,” said Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Ky. Rogers was one of several GOP lawmakers to dismiss Trump’s budget wish list. “I’ve never seen a president’s budget proposal not revised substantially,” said Sen. Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa. Several Republicans also expressed concern that Trump’s budget slash to foreign aid is too large. Rogers predicted the foreign aid cuts “will not stand” once Congress begins considering Trump’s request. But for defense hawks, many who support a dramatic increase in military investment, the $54 billion hike is not enough. “The administration’s budget request is not enough to repair that damage and to rebuild the military,” said House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry, R-Texas.

TOKYO Diplomacy has failed and it’s time to “take a different approach” to North Korea, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Thursday, as the North Korean Embassy in China warned that American military threats were bringing the region to the brink of nuclear war. Tillerson’s comment will fuel fears in the region that military options might be on the table to deter North Korea. That could prove devastating for Seoul, where some 20 million live within range of North Korean artillery. And in a sign of mounting tensions, the North Korean Embassy held a news conference in Beijing to issue its warning of nuclear war while vowing to continue with its own nuclear testing program as a legitimate form of self-defense. The U.S. secretary of state, in Japan on his first major trip abroad since taking office, put North Korea and its “dangerous and unlawful” weapons programs at the top of his agenda. “I think it’s important to recognize that the political and diplomatic efforts of the past 20 years to bring North Korea to the point of denuclearization have failed,” he said at a news conference with his Japanese counterpart Fumio Kishida, after

Two decades of futility Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s reference to 20 years of failure alluded to a 1994 deal between the U.S. and North Korea. Under it, Pyongyang would have received aid and two proliferation-resistant nuclear power plants in return for freezing and eventually dismantling its nuclear weapons program. The deal collapsed in 2002, and efforts to reach a new deal have failed, with North Korea actively pursuing nuclear weapons and the missiles with which to deliver them. (AP)
their talks but before he went to see Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. “It is clear that a different approach is required,” Tillerson said. “Part of the purpose of my visit to the region is to exchange
views on a new approach.” Tillerson plans to visit South Korea and China, countries that are looking for ways to persuade the North Korean regime to stop firing missiles and pursuing nuclear weapons. He declined to go into specifics about what a “different approach” might entail. Meanwhile in Beijing, the North Korean Embassy summoned journalists to complain about annual U.S.-South Korea military exercises, which it warned could be a prelude to military action or invasion. “The peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula is under serious threat,” Minister Pak Myongho said. “Now the situation is already on the brink of nuclear war.” ANNA FIFIELD AND SIMON DENYER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Park had two Jindo dogs — a Korean breed of hunting dog — that recently gave birth to seven puppies.

Supreme Court might be next for travel ban IMMIGRATION Federal judges in Hawaii and Maryland handed President Trump’s revised travel ban two significant defeats Wednesday and Thursday, blocking critical sections of the executive order just hours before officials were set to enforce them. Trump’s options seem more limited than with the first ban. He already has revoked and rewritten the first order. He has two rulings against him in two federal circuits. All roads, legal analysts say, now likely lead to the Supreme Court. The considerations this time are somewhat different than the initial ban. The district court rulings on the new ban pointed extensively to comments made by Trump and his top advisers indicating that they wanted to prevent Muslims from entering the U.S. If Trump were to ask for appellate court intervention, the Justice Department would have to convince the appeals courts that such evidence — which the judges in Hawaii and Maryland wrote is a strong indication that the ban might disfavor one religion — should not be considered and is not relevant. At a rally Wednesday night, Trump suggested reinstating the original travel ban. While it is technically possible that he could do that, experts warn that it would be foolish to do so given the previous 9th Circuit ruling. The only option left is the Supreme Court.

9:20 p.m., TNT
Reasons to tune in: The Trojans are one of four teams to beat SMU this season, and USC already has proved resilient with a 75-71 win over Providence on Wednesday in the First Four after trailing by 17 in the second half. Sophomore forward Bennie Boatwright had a career-high 24 points in that game, and at 6 feet 10, he’s taller than anyone on SMU. But the Mustangs have the best player on the court, Semi Ojeleye, above. The 6-7 junior transfer from Duke averages 18.9 points and a week ago dropped 36 on ECU with 12 rebounds. The ponies are a 6 seed, but according to analytics expert Ken Pomeroy, they’re underrated. He has them No. 11 in the 64-team field.
No. 1 North Carolina
He’s made eight Final Fours and won two titles in 26 appearances with an average of 0.1 wins over expectations per tournament. His Tar Heels play Texas Southern on Friday.
Sixteen games remain in the first round of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, and they all play out Friday. The first half of Thursday’s slate was mostly devoid of upsets, so the tail end of the round of 64 is due to produce some surprises. The sheer number of games can be overwhelming for any viewer, so here are four to home in on, rated for watchability on a scale of 1-5 remote controls. GABE HIATT (EXPRESS) (11) USC vs. (6) SMU

(11) Kansas State vs. (6) Cincinnati
(10) Wichita State vs. (7) Dayton
Reasons to tune in: Under former George Mason coach Jim Larranaga, the Hurricanes have boosted their credibility with Sweet 16 berths in their past two appearances. Although inconsistent, Miami ranks 24th in the country in scoring defense (63.7 points per game) and has beaten ACC heavyweights North Carolina, Virginia and Duke this season. Despite parity in the Big Ten this year, Michigan State finished seventh in the league in the regular season. Coach Tom Izzo and the Spartans have a 51 RPI compared to Miami’s 42. Freshman forward Miles Bridges, above, averages 16.7 points per game and has posted seven double-doubles.
7:27 p.m., truTV
7:10 p.m., CBS
Reasons to tune in: Like USC, Kansas State is riding high after a First Four win. The Wildcats beat Wake Forest 95-88 on Tuesday behind 24 points from Wesley Iwundu. Coach Bruce Weber is comfortable in March — he took Illinois to the national title game in 2005 and is making his 11th overall tournament appearance. Cincinnati lost to SMU in the AAC title game, but the Bearcats rank 12th in RPI, and ESPN’s BPI gives them a 70 percent chance to beat KSU. Junior Gary Clark, above, is a 6-8 Swiss Army knife, averaging 10.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.2 blocks for the defensive-minded Bearcats.
Reasons to tune in: The Shockers’ postseason pedigree makes them a popular upset pick. Although coach Gregg Marshall’s squad lacks quality wins this year, Wichita State has advanced past the first round for four years running and appeared in the 2013 Final Four. The Shockers are young — sophomore Markis McDuffie, above, and freshman Landry Shamet are the leading scorers with just over 11 points per game — but Pomeroy ranks them seventh in the field. Seniors Charles Cooke, who transferred from JMU, and Kendall Pollard both average more than 14 points and five rebounds per game for the Flyers.

John Calipari No. 2 Kentucky
In the past six years, the average No. 2 seed won 2.2 games. He has one title in 18 appearances and averages 0.56 wins over expectations. Friday, he faces N. Kentucky.

The Cavaliers closed the first half with a 16-1 run to erase a double-digit deficit, but UNCW (29-6) wouldn’t go away.

No. 5 Notre Dame barely avoided the dreaded upset from a No. 12 seed Thursday in Buffalo, N.Y. Bonzie Colson scored 18 points to help the Irish (26-9) prevent a meltdown in the last two minutes. Notre Dame’s Matt Farrell missed the front end of a one-and-one with a 59-58 lead, and Princeton had a chance to win on its last possession, but Devin Cannady missed an open 3 for the Tigers (23-7). Notre Dame faces West Virginia on Saturday. (AP)
Jordan Mathews scored 16 points to help Gonzaga pull away from South Dakota State and avoid the first 1 vs. 16 upset in history. The Jackrabbits (18-17) led for the first 17 minutes Thursday in Salt Lake City and stayed in range for most of the game. Johnathan Williams had six points, 14 rebounds and two blocks for Gonzaga (33-1) while limiting Mike Daum, the nation’s secondleading scorer, to 17 points. Gonzaga faces Northwestern on Saturday. (AP)
Reggie Upshaw scored 19 points, Giddy Potts added 15 and Middle Tennessee took down another Big Ten team in the NCAA Tournament. The 12th-seeded Blue Raiders (31-4) proved they were no one-year wonders after upsetting Michigan State as a No. 15 seed last March. Minnesota (24-10) was rallying from a 17-point deficit when Upshaw scored seven straight points to help preserve a win for the Blue Raiders, who play Butler on Saturday. (AP)
Scherzer takes mound with his old fastball Max Scherzer has used a threefinger fastball grip to take pressure off a healing stress fracture, but on Thursday he tried his old grip in his first game action of the year. Scherzer, 32, threw three innings with five strikeouts against Mets Triple-A players. When asked if Scherzer would be available for opening day, manager Dusty Baker said, “At this point, probably no.” (AP)

Murray takes Peterson’s spot in Vikings’ backfield
USA Gymnastics president resigns amid abuse scandal
The Vikings signed former Oakland running back Latavius Murray early Thursday after a long night of negotiations. General manager Rick Spielman also acknowledged that Adrian Peterson, the franchise’s all-time leading rusher, will be playing elsewhere in 2017 after the team declined its $18 million option on his contract. Murray, 27, rushed for 2,278 yards and 20 touchdowns over four seasons with the Raiders. (AP)
Steve Penny resigned as president of USA Gymnastics on Thursday following intensified pressure on the organization for its handling of sex abuse cases. A week earlier, the USOC’s board recommended to USA Gymnastics chairman Paul Parilla that Penny step down. An investigation by the Indianapolis Star portrayed USA Gymnastics as slow to act when it came to addressing allegations of sex abuse by a team doctor and by coaches at member gyms across the country.

Wizards play at home Friday (7, CSN) against the Bulls, who lost Dwyane Wade (broken elbow) for the season
WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Disappointment and disbelief didn’t last long this week for Maryland. Less than 24 hours after the Terps learned they were the No. 3 seed in the Bridgeport Region, where behemoth Connecticut (32-0) is No. 1, they got back to work. The sooner they began preparations for their next opponent, coach Brenda Frese figured, the less time the Terrapins would have to stew over a seed they considered an affront to their 30-2 record and a top five ranking for the vast majority of the season. “I like being in this situation because it gives something to motivate us, gives us some extra push,” said freshman guard Kaila Charles, who has started every game this season. The journey begins against No. 14 Bucknell (27-5) in College Park on Friday (noon, ESPN2). The Bison automatically qualified for a bid after beating Navy 79-71 in overtime to win the Patriot League tournament. Bucknell has won 11 straight but lost both of its games against Power Five opponents this season: a 65-50 defeat to North Carolina and a 57-53 loss to Rutgers. If Maryland wins, its secondround opponent likely would be No. 6 seed West Virginia (23-10), which upset second-ranked Baylor in the Big 12 tournament final and faces No. 11 Elon later Friday (2 p.m., ESPN2).

KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY | THE REELIST
LeFou in love: A ‘Beauty’ secret? It’s not anymore. As a bookloving teenage girl, I was pretty much required to adore 1991’s animated “Beauty and the Beast.” As a professional cynic, I was pretty much required to be wary of Disney’s live-action remake — and I was. I am here to report, though, that the legacy of the original is in loving, capable hands, and those hands have crafted a piece of art that is part homage, part update and very nearly all wonderful. So let’s talk about the “exclusively gay moment” people are freaking out about! Once upon a time, movies pretended that everyone was straight, the same way they pretended that no one ever had sex before marriage. Enter the
“coded gay,” those characters whose sexuality was given a wink and a nod. My favorites are Martin Landau in “North by Northwest,” Marlene Dietrich in “Morocco” and basically everything Peter Lorre ever did. This code was the cinematic equivalent of pretending those nice older ladies who live next door to you are just roommates; it made it possible to represent a gay character while nearly entirely divorcing him or her from any sort of romantic or sexual life. Some say LeFou (played by Josh Gad in the “Beauty and the Beast” update), sidekick to the brutal, moronic Gaston (Luke Evans), was always coded gay. I disagree — leading one rousing song in praise of your burly best friend does not a homosexual make — but
it’s not a completely unfounded argument. I’m not going to get into the specifics of THE MOMENT, partially because it’s less than two seconds long and partially because it’s not like any trouser snakes run rampant on screen. (I’m also not going to tell you the other two LGBTQ-friendly moments I spotted. It’s like a sexual orientation scavenger hunt!) THE MOMENT simply suggests that LeFou might get his own happily ever after, and that he might spend it with a guy. And that, I think, is why some people — many of whom, I wager, have not SEEN THE MOVIE — are freaking. Disney has presented a gay man as a normal part of the world. Which should not be surprising,
‘Beauty and the Beast’ (PG, 129 min.) DIRECTOR: Bill Condon STARS: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad IN A NUTSHELL: In this live-action retelling, a young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle discovers his kind heart and soul.
Julie Andrews pens CNN op-ed with daughter defending arts funding: The arts “remind us who we are”
since gay men are, you know, a normal part of the world. In cracking the code, Disney has made it impossible for people to separate LeFou from his romantic life, and that’s what makes some people uncomfortable. Removing sexual or romantic interests from LGBTQ characters (and people) makes them safer to those who consider them dangerous. That’s how people who are opposed to the “homosexual lifestyle” can still love their daughter’s soccer coach (and her “roommate”) or the church choir director who just never found the right girl. It’s OK to be gay — just don’t have any romantic or sexual interests. All THE MOMENT does is break LeFou out of the coded closet and make his sexuality a part of his life. After all, Belle’s sexuality is a part of hers, in this movie where the main lessons involve looking past differences and celebrating love, even when it’s between two members of different species. Disney hasn’t made LeFou gay. They’ve just made him fully human. Read Kristen’s musings on movies each week in Express.
In French director Olivier Assayas’ “Personal Shopper,” Kristen Stewart plays a woman in Paris working in fashion who also moonlights as a medium. She’s tasked with finding out whether an old house is still haunted by its late resident, who happens to be her twin brother. This film works in two realms: as an engrossing ghost story and a drama that addresses profound matters of life and death. PAT PADUA (THE WASHINGTON POST)
‘Betting on Zero’ Unrated, 99 min.
This documentary, a searing exposé arguing that the nutritional supplement company Herbalife is a Ponzi scheme, follows Bill Ackman, a hedge fund manager who made it his mission to take down the company. The film makes such a strong case that Herbalife does, in fact, engage in shady practices that it’ll likely leave viewers in a state of righteous outrage. MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN (TWP)

One awkward homecoming FILM REVIEW The former high school buddies who become reacquainted in “Donald Cried” do so under awkward circumstances. Then again, just about everything that happens in this low-budget comic drama is awkward. The movie is so fixated on embarrassing legacies that it ends with a Milli Vanilli song. Peter (Jesse Wakeman) returns to his snowy Rhode Island hometown with two goals: settling the affairs of his recently deceased grandmother and avoiding Donald (Kristopher Avedisian, the movie’s director). The two were metalhead best friends some 25 years ago, but Peter has grown up and gotten a Manhattan job he vaguely describes as being “in finance.” He suspects, rightly, that Donald has not changed. Forcing the two together is essential to the script, which was written by Avedisian (from a story conceived by Wakeman and Kyle Espeleta, who also has a small part). The device that facilitates the reunion is a missing wallet: Peter finds himself without cash and credit cards and turns to Donald for a loan. He doesn’t get much money, because the shaggy-haired slacker doesn’t have much. What Donald does have plenty of is free time to spend with his onetime pal. Peter has grown-up things to
Meet Donald (Kristopher Avedisian), that guy from high school you hope to never run into.
‘Sense’ adapts a complex book with grace
A comedy that digs up the past evokes more cringing than laughter
‘Donald Cried’ (Unrated, 85 min.) DIRECTOR: Kristopher Avedisian STARS: Jesse Wakeman, Kristopher Avedisian, Louisa Krause IN A NUTSHELL: A guy encounters his childhood friend when he returns to his hometown, which leads to a daylong excursion into the past.
do, such as collecting his grandmother’s ashes and beginning the process of selling her house. Donald is happy — nearly delirious, in fact — to play chauffeur. But he insists on side trips to see old friends, visit storied haunts, play football, throw snowballs
and get stoned. Peter tries to avoid these detours, and not just because he has appointments to honor. He also doesn’t want to confront the memories of his own adolescent misdeeds, notably the one that made Donald cry. One other hazard to dodge: regressing to the teenage self who might actually bond with a guy who still lives at home, works in a bowling alley and sleeps under an autographed poster of a naked porn star. That development is inevitable, although the movie does muster a few nifty surprises on its way to Peter’s ultimate surrender. There’s a bizarre revelation at a nursing home and an abortive hookup with a high school crush
(Louisa Krause) at a highly inappropriate venue. “Donald Cried” takes a purely functional approach to storytelling. Ted Arcidi has an outrageous turn as Donald’s belligerent boss, but the focus is on Wakeman and Avedisian’s unwavering performances. These are encapsulated in a scene where the two men pose for a photo: Donald is as frisky as a puppy, while Peter has a forced smile and one eye on the door. “Donald Cried” succeeds on its own modest terms, but watching its title character can be painful. This is not a movie for people who’d just as soon forget their own teenage mortifications. MARK JENKINS (THE WASHINGTON POST)
This was just waiting to be a book title
Chelsea Clinton has written a children’s book called “She Persisted,” coming out May 30, Penguin Young Readers announced. Clinton will honor 13 American women “who never take no for an answer,” including Harriet Tubman, Sonia Sotomayor and Oprah Winfrey. The title refers to a comment — now a catchphrase — by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after the silencing of Sen. Elizabeth Warren during a debate. (AP)

FILM REVIEW “The Sense of an Ending,” Julian Barnes’ elegant Man Booker Prize-winning novel, receives a tasteful if limited adaptation in Ritesh Batra’s film. Batra has done a commendable job of translating Barnes’ intricate prose to the screen, opening up some of its corners, burrowing into its time shifts and elaborating on a few otherwise marginal characters. Jim Broadbent plays Tony Webster, a divorced retiree who lives a solitary existence in his townhouse. When a surprising letter arrives in the mail — informing him that he’s been left an artifact of his youth in the will of his college girlfriend’s mother — Tony is forced out of his comfortable habits, resulting in a reconsideration of a pivotal episode that his memory has dramatically distorted over time. While Broadbent inhabits Tony’s set ways with curmudgeonly bemusement and acerbic humor, Batra skillfully navigates the play of present and past in Tony’s life, introducing memories in flashing moments of magical realism. “The Sense of an Ending” is a cozy movie with an un-cozy message — about the perils of resuscitating our pasts, and the even bigger risk of leaving them be. Some may wonder whether the truth hurts more when it’s fallow, or furrowed and unearthed. For Tony, however, the answer to the question winds up being shocking and exhilarating. ANN HORNADAY (TWP)

EXPECTED RELEASE: Nov. 22

SUMMARY: Pixar is coming to assault your heart again. This time, the attack comes in the guise of a little boy, who watches a musician worshipfully on TV while playing the most adorable cardboard guitar ever. Then the musician goes and dies, and the kid follows him to the afterlife and sorry we’re already crying. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
SUMMARY: In our second tear-jerking trailer of the week, Hollywood again answers the question “How do we make a wartime movie more emotional?” with a resounding “Put a dog in it!” Look for the film — based on the true story of a Marine who worked to bring her pupper home after a tour in Iraq — to at least get a nomination in the category of “Good Boy.” K.P.K.

Sharon is usually the ﬁrst person I interact with each day and she always creates a sense of community with her kind words, wishing everyone a good day or weekend. As a relative newcomer to the area, I appreciate her gentle, welcoming smile.
@RUDYDEDOMINATOR reacting to a shocking anti-Trump tweet that McDonald’s sent out Thursday morning. “[President Trump] you are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have [Barack Obama] back, also you have tiny hands,” the fast-food company tweeted. The tweet in fact was “pinned” as a prominent tweet before it was deleted, about 20 minutes after it was posted. McDonald’s later said its account had been compromised and that it is investigating the incident.

PAR SCORE 155-165, BEST SCORE 217
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You can do much for someone who hasn’t been in the forefront for some time. You soon may choose to take a pioneering stance. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You can fill a gap if you work quickly, but know that a rival may be trying to beat you to the punch. Trust your own methods. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) A deadline approaches, but you may not have to throw yourself into a frenzy to get things done on time. A calm, steady pace pays off. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) There’s no reason for you to panic over news you receive through unofficial channels. The likelihood is that it is not true — not yet, anyway.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
You’re not doing what you’re doing for profit, but for another kind of personal gain — and you can have that, in spades, starting today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) At this point, everyone is looking for his or her own comfort zone. You are likely to find yours where you least expect it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You must not forget what you have promised to do for a friend or loved one. It may not be convenient, but it’s not to be overlooked. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Things

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.

Amy calls her bullies names on Instagram
Kendall, like us, is short $200,000 Kendall Jenner reported to police early Thursday that her Hollywood Hills home had been burglarized. According to TMZ, the model told police that $200,000 in jewelry was stolen. The site reported that Jenner had a party the previous night, and later saw that her jewelry box was open. Police told TMZ there was no sign of forced entry, and the evidence indicates the robbery was an inside job. (EXPRESS)
Several outlets reported this week that Amy Schumer’s latest Netflix special, “The Leather Special,” debuted on the site to disappointing reviews from members. But according to Splitsider, many of the poor ratings were the work of an organized effort from an alt-right Reddit thread to give Schumer’s special a one-star rating. Schumer responded to Splitsider’s story Wednesday on Instagram, writing, “I am embarrassed for the ‘journalists’ who report on trolls’ activities as if it’s news. … I thank you trolls so much. It fills me with hope and power to see you all furiously posting so as always [to] accuse me of whatever lies you want.” (EXPRESS)

I always end up feeling like s--- when I look at Instagram.” (EXPRESS)
