Letters shed light on Franks

Ryan Cooper holds a 1972 portion of a diary that he wrote when he visited Otto Frank. It includes a photo of Anne Frank, Otto’s daughter.

But they were eventually discovered and sent to concentration camps, where Anne died at age 15 — among an estimated 6 million Jews killed by the Nazis. Otto Frank was the only family member to survive, living to see the Soviet army liberate the notorious Auschwitz camp in Poland in 1945. He had his daughter’s diary published two years

later and dedicated his days to speaking about the atrocities of the Holocaust. But in his letters and conversations in person, Frank focused less on his family’s personal trauma and chose instead to patiently counsel Cooper through his own everyday struggles. “In a lot of ways, I feel like I was adopted by Otto,” Cooper said. “He made me feel like I had a family during a period of real isolation.” Edna Friedberg, a historian at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, said it’s important to remember the sacrifices Otto and others made to keep Anne Frank’s legacy alive. “Otto Frank never had to publish that diary. As a parent in mourning, he could have kept this to himself,” she said. “But he gave it as a gift to humanity because he saw that it spoke to something bigger. He took that charge, and ran with it for the rest of his life.” The museum will digitize and eventually make Cooper’s collection available online. It totals more than 80 letters and some family keepsakes. PHILIP MARCELO (AP)

NATIONAL MALL Ryan Cooper was a 20-something Californian unsure of his place in the world when he struck up a pen pal correspondence in the 1970s with Otto Frank, the father of the young Holocaust victim Anne Frank. Through dozens of letters and several face-to-face meetings, the two forged a friendship that lasted until Frank died in 1980 at the age of 91. Now 73 years old, Cooper, an antiques dealer and artist in Massachusetts, has donated a trove of letters and mementos he received from Frank to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum for the 90th anniversary of Anne Frank’s birth on June 12, 1929. He wants the letters to be shared so that people can have a deeper understanding of the man who introduced the world to Anne Frank, whose famous World War II diary is considered one of the most important works of the 20th century. “He was a lot like Anne in that he was an optimist,” Cooper said recently of Otto Frank.

Scandal fades and polls rise for Northam


Early data shows decline in opioid deaths in 2019 Fewer people died of heroin and fentanyl in Maryland in the first quarter of 2019 than during the same period the previous year, preliminary data shows, marking the state’s first decline in fatal opioid overdoses in a decade.

Va. governor has regained party support as Democrats strive to capture legislature

a questionable political future. In February, Northam took responsibility for, then disavowed, a 1984 yearbook photo showing one person in blackface and another in Ku Klux Klan robes. He later admitted to darkening his face for a contest that year. Northam’s fundraising during an election year is diminished, and Republicans mock him mercilessly. “It doesn’t matter if Northam is vetoing or signing legislation, he is still a racist that’s doing everything he can to stay in power,” said John March, spokesman for the Republican Party of Virginia. But last week, several Democrats who had questioned his leadership praised his call for the special session. “It clearly indicates that he won’t shy away from opportunities to lead,” said Del. Lamont Bagby, D-Henrico., head of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, which has not withdrawn its demand for Northam to resign. Last week, the governor signed a bill to eliminate Jim Crow-era minimum-wage exemptions. Northam also signed bills aimed at reducing maternal mortality


POLITICS Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, D, is wielding renewed power four months after a racism scandal that nearly led him to resign. With encouraging internal poll numbers and growing Democratic support, Northam has resumed publicizing bill signing and his weekly schedule. He has taken high-profile actions like vetoing a sentencing bill that could hurt African Americans, and is working to revamp public schools’ black history curriculum. Last week, to call for a special legislative session on gun control after the Virginia Beach mass shooting, Northam summoned lawmakers to stand with him as if nothing had torn them apart. If Republicans balk at reforms during the July 9 session, Democrats can fire up their base in elections this fall, while trying to seize legislative control from the GOP. Democrats last controlled both the governorship and the two legislative houses in 1993. Democratic majorities in the House and Senate would give Northam backing to accomplish more than any Virginia Democrat in decades, despite

Internal polling by the House Democratic caucus and by individual campaigns has shown solid support across the state for Northam, according to several Democrats who have seen the numbers. Republicans have gleefully publicized what they describe as tainted donations from “Governor Blackface.” The governor can still help Democrats deliver on policy, Bagby said. Voters in general elections in November “will focus on the individuals that are on the ballot,” not on Northam, he said. “And they will also focus on issues that will impact them in their communities.” GREGORY SCHNEIDER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Standoff on D.C. budget scrambles 2019 outlook Council chair disagrees with city finance officer on proper use of funds FINANCE D.C. lawmakers are refusing demands from the city’s chief financial officer to modify their recently passed budget, setting up what observers say is an unprecedented battle between the city’s legislative branch and its top fiscal official. On Monday, CFO Jeffrey S. DeWitt told the D.C. Council in a letter that he would not certify its $15.5 billion budget, saying it improperly diverted money from the Washington Convention and Sports Authority. The council wants to use those funds for nearly $25 million in public housing repairs, among other plans. But after a closed-door meeting with their general counsel on Tuesday, lawmakers continue to argue DeWitt’s decision is flawed and are not yet inclined to change course, council Chairman Phil Mendelson, D, said. Mendelson said the option of suing the CFO was briefly brought up but that members had little appetite for it. However, he said lawmakers were concerned that the CFO had strayed into policy-making instead of offering disinterested financial guidance. “There’s clearly a view among members that they want the

D.C. finance chief Jeffrey DeWitt said Monday he won’t certify the budget.

budget certified,” Mendelson said in an interview after the meeting. “And there clearly is a sense of the council that the CFO has overreached.” David Umansky, DeWitt’s spokesman, said the CFO “does not engage in policy-making” and “is following District law.” In his Monday letter, the CFO asserted that the council’s plan to transfer $49 million from the reserves of the convention authority would violate the city’s obligations to bondholders whose investments funded the construction of the convention center and its hotel. DeWitt argued that the council’s proposed use of the money could even trigger a credit downgrading for the city. He also acknowledged that — because of an accounting oversight — nearly $47 million that should have been transferred to


the city’s general fund since the 2017 fiscal year was mistakenly kept by the authority. The dispute now revolves around what to do with the previously misplaced $47 million. Umansky said the city is legally required to correct its books by transferring the excess convention authority money to reserve funds. But Mendelson disputed that, saying the decision about how to reprogram the money is not DeWitt’s. If DeWitt does not certify the budget, it cannot be sent to Mayor Muriel E. Bowser, D, or Congress for final approval. Council members are scheduled to vote for a final time on budget-related legislation next week, but that could be delayed if the dispute with DeWitt is not resolved by then.

U.S. economists see red flags POLITICS

GOP’s Amash leaves conservative caucus


ECONOMY Once this trade-war cloud gets lifted, investors should have little to worry about, right? Monday’s market action makes it seem that way: Stocks around the world climbed after President Trump withdrew a threat to impose tariffs on Mexico, at least for now. That leaves investors hoping for a deal to soothe the more contentious and complex trade dispute with China, which helped sink stocks last month. But there are other concerns that shouldn’t be overlooked. Economic trends were already signaling trouble before the latest round of tariff-induced fear. Friday’s surprisingly weak jobs report, where employers added far fewer jobs than economists expected, gave extra pause. “If the administration fixes the problem it created, I’m sure there will be a short-term pop in the stock market,” said Rich Weiss, chief investment officer of multi-asset strategies at American Century Investments. “However, I believe it’s only short-term because ultimately that will not remedy the underlying fundamentals, which are just not strong.” Of course, many on Wall Street are still forecasting gains for stocks this year. But skeptics say optimists aren’t looking closely enough at all the troubles getting overshadowed by trade disputes. Among the concerns:


Trade wars have drawn a lot of attention, but there are other risks too

Markets have been roiled by President Trump’s tariff threats, but trade wars aren’t the only risk to the economy.

Slowing economic growth

Lackluster profit growth

Geopolitical uncertainty

A few reports showed weakness in April, even before this latest round of trade worries flared up. Among them: another drop in North American freight shipments, slower manufacturing growth than expected and weaker business spending on equipment. Michael Wilson, equity strategist at Morgan Stanley, sees a warning flag in falling profits for many retailers. While the industry’s overall figures for the first quarter may look decent due to big gains for Amazon, Nordstrom and other retailers saw big declines. That could be an early sign that U.S. consumers, whose spending is such a key part of the economy, may be less willing to spend in the coming months.

Companies across the S&P 500 reported roughly flat earnings for the first three months of 2019, as they’re no longer getting the big boost of the first year of lower tax rates. Companies are also paying higher wages to their workers, and average hourly earnings rose 3.1% in May, which raises their costs. All those pressures could bring down profit margins for companies, which have recently been at record highs. If companies aren’t able to extract as much profit from each dollar in revenue, they’ll need to make up for it by delivering more in sales. A slowing economy would make that tough.

In Washington, regulators may be setting the stage for antitrust probes into some of the biggest tech companies. Amazon, Apple, Google’s parent and other megatech companies have been some of the market’s best-performing stocks in recent years, and losses for them have outsized effects on S&P 500 index funds. In the Middle East, the Trump administration has pledged “maximum pressure” on Iran. Beyond the possibility of violence, the increasing tensions could send the price of oil soaring. In Europe, Britain is still negotiating its exit from the European Union, and investors are worried about signs of increasing tension between the bloc and Italy. STAN CHOE (AP)

Stewart blasts Congress over 9/11 victim fund

Hot spell roasts the West Coast

Massive ‘dead zone’ in Gulf of Mexico

Wildfires burn out of control in Canada

A major early-season heat wave has gripped the West Coast this week. On Tuesday, the epicenter of broiling conditions was California. San Francisco Airport soared to a record high of 100 degrees Monday, its earliest date of hitting that mark and its hottest-ever June temperature by 2 degrees. About 45 million people were under a heat advisory or excessive heat warning for a third straight day Tuesday because of an unusually strong area of high pressure lodged over the region. Widespread power outages occurred near San Francisco on Monday, and Bay Area Rapid Transit reported significant delays as a result of the weather. Fire danger is high, and air quality is poor. The core of the heat shifts northward as it eases through midweek. By today, the hottest weather relative to normal should be focused in the Pacific Northwest, where record highs are possible in Oregon and temperatures are expected to hit the mid-80s in Seattle.

Scientists are predicting a near-record Gulf of Mexico “dead zone” where the water holds too little oxygen to sustain marine life. “A major factor contributing to the large dead zone this year is the abnormally high amount of spring rainfall in many parts of the Mississippi River watershed,” the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Monday. That led to record amounts of water carrying large quantities of fertilizer and other nutrients downriver, it said. The nutrients feed algae, which die and then decompose on the sea floor, using up oxygen from the bottom up in an area along the coasts of Louisiana and Texas. The lowoxygen, or hypoxic, area is likely to cover about 7,800 square miles, NOAA said. (The record set in 2017 is 8,776 square miles.) An area the size of New Jersey could become almost entirely barren this summer, posing a threat to marine species — and the fishermen who depend on them.

Wildfire season in Canada is off to a ferocious start. Eighty-seven fires were burning in seven provinces and two territories Monday, forcing 4,415 people from their homes. Crystal McAteer, the mayor of High Level, Alberta, had never seen anything like the Chuckegg Creek Fire. An outof-control blaze nearly the size of Rhode Island — 50% larger than last year’s record-breaking Mendocino Complex Fire in California — has jumped rivers with ease, blackened the rain with soot and colored sunsets as far away as Britain. “When it took off, it had such a force,” McAteer said, the fire having bypassed her town last month but still raging. “It was like a beast.” As the Canadian north grows warmer and drier for longer periods, the destruction is expected to get worse. Wildfires there are now scorching more than 6 million acres of per year — twice what they burned in the 1970s. And it’s projected to double again by the end of the century.

Comedian Jon Stewart took members of Congress to task on Tuesday, blasting part of the House Judiciary Committee for its low attendance at a hearing about reauthorizing funding for people with diseases linked to the 9/11 crash sites. Congress created the fund after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, to help anyone injured or sickened in the attacks or in the response process. “I can’t help but think what an incredible metaphor this room is for the entire process that getting health care and benefits for 9/11 first responders has come to,” Stewart told a subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee. “Behind me, a filled room of 9/11 first responders, and in front of me, a nearly empty Congress.” The firefighters, police officers and others came to the hearing despite illness and injuries, Stewart said, but some members of the subcommittee chose not to show up. The Victim Compensation Fund is allowing people to submit claims until Dec. 18, 2020, but the fund’s leadership said it would reduce awards because of “funding insufficiency.” Ranking member Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La., later sought to assure Stewart his message resonated, regardless of who actually attended the hearing. He further predicted the measure to extend the fund would pass with little opposition. MARISA IATI

U.S. suit: Building materials spread Grenfell Tower fire

Faulty building materials helped spread a devastating fire at London’s Grenfell Tower in 2017, turning the residential complex into a “flaming coffin” for the 72 people who died, according to a product liability suit filed Tuesday in a state court in Philadelphia. Nearly 250 survivors and families of victims of the June 14, 2017, fire joined the suit, which targets U.S. companies that made products used at the complex. The tower’s exterior cladding was made of highly flammable material that can’t be used in U.S. skyscrapers, the plaintiffs’ lawyers said. The insulation was similarly combustible, they said. (AP)

A United States official said Tuesday that the U.S. government has formally submitted an extradition request to the United Kingdom for Julian Assange. The WikiLeaks founder faces an 18-count indictment that accuses him of soliciting and publishing classified information and of conspiring with former Army private Chelsea Manning to crack a Defense Department computer password. That indictment, which includes Espionage Act charges, was issued by the Justice Department last month and is pending in federal court in Alexandria. The extradition request had been expected. (AP)

The House took its strongest step yet in the standoff with President Trump over congressional oversight, voting Tuesday to seek court enforcement of subpoenas for Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Donald McGahn. On a party-line vote of 229 to 191, the House passed a resolution that would empower the House Judiciary Committee to go to court against Barr and McGahn over noncompliance with requests for documents and testimony. The vote keeps Democrats on the investigative track favored by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., over an impeachment inquiry. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Rarely enforced laws carried punishment of up to 7 years in jail GABORONE, BOTSWANA A high court in Botswana struck down two colonial-era laws Tuesday, effectively legalizing gay sex and making the southern African country the first on the continent to erase that colonial legacy through its courts. Reading the unanimous ruling

of a panel of judges in front of a packed courtroom, Justice Michael Leburu said that sexual orientation “is not a fashion statement” and that the laws as they stood violated citizens’ rights to privacy and freedom from discrimination. While seldom enforced in Botswana, the laws carried the possibility of up to a seven-year jail sentence. “It is not the business of the law to regulate the private behavior of two consenting adults,”

Ala. OKs ‘chemical castration’ Under new law, certain sex offenders will have to undergo treatment

ancing Easy fin s. $149/mo

ALABAMA Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, R, signed a bill Monday that will require people convicted of certain sex offenses to undergo “chemical castration” as a condition of parole — a requirement meant to keep perpetrators from committing similar crimes. Gina Maiola, a spokeswoman for Ivey, said the law will apply to people who commit sex offenses

after Sept. 1 of this year. The “chemical castration” law says a judge must order anyone convicted of a sex offense involving a child under the age of 13 to start receiving testosteroneinhibiting medication a month before their release from prison. Most offenders will have to pay for their treatment until a judge decides the medication is no longer necessary. Under the law, a judge — not a doctor — will tell the offender about the effects of the treatment. Offenders can choose at any time to stop getting the medication

and return to prison to serve the remainder of their terms. “Chemical castration” is a misnomer, as the process leaves the testes intact, can be reversed and does not prevent a man from reproducing. Seven other states and U.S. territories — California, Florida, Guam, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana and Wisconsin — permit some sex offenders to be forced to take testosteronesuppressing drugs as a condition of sentencing, release or supervision, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Alex Morgan, right, scored five goals in the United States’ 13-0 rout of Thailand.

For U.S., a baker’s dozen

UNITED STATES 13, THAILAND 0 The chasm between women’s soccer elite and developing programs has narrowed some in recent years, but in many embarrassing cases, the division remains as wide as oceans, even in a World Cup. That gap was on full and frightening display Tuesday as the U.S. national team began its quest for a second consecutive trophy with a 13-0 demolition of Thailand — the most lopsided victory in World Cup history. Alex Morgan tied the program record with five goals, and Rose Lavelle and Samantha Mewis scored two apiece for the topranked Americans. Michelle Akers is the only other American to post five goals in a World Cup match (in 1991). Once the Americans found their groove — it didn’t take long — they were relentless and ruthless before 18,591 witnesses at Stade Auguste-Delaune in Reims, France. A 3-0 halftime lead became a seven-goal margin nine minutes

into the second half. Lindsey Horan, Megan Rapinoe, Mallory Pugh and Carli Lloyd also scored for the United States, which has won seven consecutive matches, five without conceding a goal. Morgan’s third goal, a 17-yard shot after using clever footwork in tight space, exceeded

the previous U.S. team scoring mark in a World Cup of 7-0 against Taiwan in the 1991 quarterfinals. With a vast majority of the crowd backing them, the Americans took the field with all of the expected starters, except one: Center back Becky Sauerbrunn

was held out as a precaution because of what team officials described as a mild quadriceps injury. She is in the running to start Sunday. In Sauerbrunn’s absence, defensive midfielder Julie Ertz dropped back into former position and paired with Abby Dahlemper. Ertz’s slot was filled by Mewis, who figured to start at times in this tournament. Thailand defended admirably for a dozen minutes — a Morgan goal was also disallowed because she was offside — before relenting to pressure. It also had two meaningful possessions in the attacking end, neither of which threatened goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher. At the other end, blocked shots and ignored pleas for penalty kicks kept the score respectable. Chile — a first-time entry that gave Sweden fits before falling, 2-0 — will brace for the United States on Sunday in Paris. A U.S. victory would secure passage to the round of 16.

Depth gives Boston an edge ANALYSIS The Bruins are no strangers to Game 7. They won the Stanley Cup in the decisive game against the Canucks in 2011 — but this is the first time Boston will host the ultimate game of the finals in its 95-year history. “You’ve got two good teams who have gone toe to toe here,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy told The Associated Press. “The whole hockey world loves a Game 7. It should be a great night in Boston and may the best team win.” Home ice has its advantages. Overall, the home team has a 10473 record in the playoffs, which improves to 12-4 in the finals. Plus, the coach of the home team gets to dictate the matchups on the ice with the benefit of last change. For the Bruins, that’s a considerable strength given their roster depth. Karson Kuhlman’s goal in the third period of Game 6 gave Boston 21 different players with at least one goal in the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs, tying them with the 1987 Flyers for the most unique

plenty of contributions from their defense: Seven different blue liners have at least one goal during this playoff run. Torey Krug leads the way for Boston with one goal and six assists


Ortiz has another surgery, recovering in intensive care

Koepka will try to become first three-peat since 1905

Former Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is recovering at Massachusetts General Hospital following a second surgery as authorities in his native Dominican Republic search for a motive and one of the suspects in Ortiz’s shooting. “He is stable, awake and resting comfortably this morning in the ICU, where he is expected to remain for the next several days,” his wife, Tiffany, said.

Brooks Koepka is chasing a rare third straight U.S. Open title this weekend. How rare? Golf’s last three-peat was Steve Stricker at the John Deere Classic eight years ago. No one has gone back-to-back-to-back in the U.S. Open since Willie Anderson in 1905. Dustin Johnson is the slight betting favorite over Koepka for this year’s U.S. Open, which begins Thursday at Pebble Beach. (AP)

in the series, the most points by a Bruins defenseman in the Stanley Cup Final since Bobby Orr in 1974. That offense doesn’t come at the expense of defense. The 28-year-old has been on the ice for 19 even-strength goals for and 14 against during the playoffs. The trio of Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak and Patrice Bergeron have yet to score an even-strength goal in this series, but they have the edge in shot attempts (28 to 20) against the Blues in the finals. Marchand has also shown he can rise on the biggest of stages. His seven career goals in the Stanley Cup Final is tied for the third-most in franchise history, and only one fewer than Orr and John Bucyk. Boston is also 24-1 all time when Marchand scores in the postseason. “A lot of us have been in the finals a couple of times,” Boston goalkeeper and Conn Smythe Trophy favorite Tuukka Rask told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “We haven’t had a chance to have a clinching game at home. So obviously the city will be behind us and very excited. We’re just going to focus on our game. We have a hockey game to win.” NEIL GREENBERG (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Nicholson aims to earn back his place as starter REDSKINS Montae Nicholson, above, knows 2018 wasn’t a great year for him, and now he has an opportunity to hit restart. After starting six games as a rookie, Nicholson began his second season as the starting safety opposite D.J. Swearinger, before being replaced by midseason trade acquisition Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Things didn’t go any better off the field, as he was arrested following a bar fight in December, and the team ended his season by putting him on the non-football illness list with two games remaining. His goal is to get his starting job back. “Of course, that’s where I hope things end up, but everything happens for a reason,” Nicholson said. “If it’s not me, there’s no falloff. We’re just competing every day trying to make each other better so the team can be better.” Nicholson didn’t directly address his arrest, but coach Jay Gruden said no disciplinary action would be taken against the third-year player, whose misdemeanor assault charges were dropped last month. Landon Collins is a lock to start at one safety position after signing an $84 million deal in free agency. Clinton-Dix signed with the Bears this offseason, so that leaves Nicholson, Deshazor Everett and second-year pro Troy Apke competing for the other starting slot. KAREEM COPELAND (TWP)

What’s the impact of Durant’s injury? ANALYSIS Kevin Durant’s decision to return from a right calf strain, only to suffer a far more serious injury after just 12 minutes of action in Game 5 against the Raptors on Monday night, bears massive implications for his career and for the NBA.

After a season in which his loyalty to the Warriors was doubted — even by teammate Draymond Green last fall — Durant accepted the risk and paid for it dearly. He reportedly tore his Achilles tendon, an injury that requires a 12-month recovery and could erase his entire 2019-20 season. The silver lining is that this injury is unlikely to curb Durant’s earning power. The Knicks and Clippers spent all season positioning themselves to get him,


Star still expected to get max deal despite likely missing 2019-20 season

and they should still be willing to offer a four-year max deal and wait on his return to full health. For a perfect reminder of the value of betting on A-list talent despite complicating factors, look no further than Kawhi

Leonard’s remarkable bounceback season with the Raptors. The Warriors, meanwhile, should be as willing as ever to re-sign Durant, whose presence early in Game 5 showed how vital he is to their success.

Jury hung on 8 remaining counts against ex-NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr., convicted of raping homeless woman


RGIII speaks on Durant

Kevin Durant could miss the entire 2019-20 season after reportedly tearing his Achilles tendon.

Ex-Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III says players like Kevin Durant can’t win. “It’s a Catch-22,” said Griffin, who played hurt in 2013 and ended up tearing multiple ligaments in his knee. “If KD does play and stays healthy, they say, ‘Well, he should have been playing the whole time.’ If KD plays and gets hurt, like he did, they question why he was out there.” (TWP)

Salary cap rules say the Warriors can offer Durant a five-year max contract. But if he leaves and they decide to re-sign Klay Thompson, they won’t have the flexibility to add another star. BEN GOLLIVER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Bruce Springsteen delivers a more understated style on his new record, which drops Friday.


Old yarn, fresh spin

Cullum hops genres with mixed results

ALBUM REVIEW Bruce Springsteen’s new studio release breaks fresh ground for the veteran rocker, who turns his back not only on the blistering sound of the E Street Band but also abandons the haunting acoustic moods pioneered on 1982’s “Nebraska” and finetuned on later solo efforts. After the soul-searching, confessional tone of his best-selling autobiography and sold-out Broadway show, Springsteen’s “Western Stars,” which comes out Friday, relies on an unfamiliar orchestral approach that somewhat masks the singer and is devoid of driving beats, sax solos and rock ‘n’ roll tropes. Instead, he draws on the rich tradition of California-styled, pre-Beatles pop. There are hints of Roy Orbison’s soaring vocals and Brian Wilson’s pocket symphonies, but the lyrics are pure Springsteen. Beneath the glossy sheen are the taut narratives, introspection and ambiguous moments familiar to longtime listeners. His storytelling skills are as strong as ever, just presented

in a different way. He’s paying homage to an era when the single reigned, and radio airtime went a long way to determining an artist’s success, but Springsteen is not looking for No. 1 hits with easy hooks. “Western Stars” is understated, without over-the-top orchestration or hyperbole. Each song stands alone as a self-contained story; taken as a whole, it’s a panorama of loneliness and heartbreak. The protagonists are mostly men, and mostly beaten down, but there are occasional whiffs of freedom, usually tied to the joys of the open road, that most enduring of American myths. It is no accident that the album opens with “Hitch Hikin’,” and this straightforward image of a loner in perpetual motion: “Thumb stuck out as I go / I’m just travelin’ up the road / Maps don’t do much for me, friend / I follow the weather and the wind.” It’s a recurring image dating back to the days of Woody Guthrie. There are other fully formed characters from Springsteen’s


Bruce Springsteen gives classic storytelling a welcome overhaul on ‘Western Stars’

imagination: the failed country music songwriter, his lyrics rejected at every turn, and the busted up ‘Western Stars’ B-movie stunt- Bruce Springsteen man held together by rods and pins. A rundown hotel — with an empty swimming pool and dandelions pushing up through the cracked concrete — takes on a life of its own as a character in “Moonlight Motel.” But it’s not all heartbreak. There are small celebrations, too, notably in “Sleepy Joe’s Café,” where working men and women

can find solace on the dance floor when the weekend comes. It’s a dreamy place where Monday morning is far, far away, and Springsteen has placed it in the context of the postwar economic boom that powered America for decades: “Joe came home in ’45 and took out a G.I. loan / On a sleepy little spot an Army cook could call his own / He married May, the highway come in and they woke up to find they were sitting on top of a pretty little gold mine.” It’s a nostalgic vision, yes, but those roadhouses still exist. You just have to drive a bit.

Eight albums into his career, Jamie Cullum still deploys the vast musical repertoire of a cruise ship pianist, which he once was. Name a song; he’ll play it. As a result, “Taller,” his record released Friday, is a grab bag that doesn’t quite cohere. The 10-song set has big ambitions and big arrangements, but it’s stylistically scattershot as Cullum explores the past several decades of the pop songbook. He serves up Bruno Mars-ish funk (“Usher”), a Prince-parroting falsetto (“Monster”), a Sinatra-worthy elbow-bender ballad (“You Can’t Hide Away From Love”) and a Mark Ronson-replicating woofer test (“Taller”). It’s doubtful anyone will like everything here, but there is something for everyone. STEVEN WINE (AP)

clearly was at the top of his game. Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, died in Oman last year at 28. He left behind a dozen excellent songs that show he had

“Dune” filmmaker Denis Villeneuve to direct pilot of streaming series “Dune: The Sisterhood”

grown into a pop music powerhouse, attracting the likes of Imagine Dragons and Coldplay’s Chris Martin as guests. He explores Indian sounds (“Tough Love”), hip-hop and glam (“Excuse Me Mr Sir”), does a little Troye Sivan-like frank intimacy (“Freak”), and uses blissed-out harmonies (“Peace of Mind”) and tropical vibes (“Bad Reputation”). “TIM” is the culmination of Avicii’s song-based flair that incorporates elements outside EDM. Unlike other DJs, his songs aren’t rushed. He lets them breathe. The predictable tricks his rivals use are absent here. The songs feel organic, not processed. Lyrically, it’s tempting to find

darkness and, sure, it’s there. “Can I get a little peace?” go the lyrics on one song. “Down upon my knees,” go another. “I still feel broken.” But “TIM” is actually optimistic in tone. “All the breath in your lungs / Is stronger than the tears in your eyes,” the lyrics go on “Hold the Line.” And despite lyrics about fighting with a lover, “Tough Love” concludes: “There’s no place I’d rather be than in your arms.” Even “SOS” — which reunites Avicii with Aloe Blacc, who sang on Avicii’s biggest hit, 2013’s “Wake Me Up” — has hope: “I can feel your love pulling me up from the underground.” There is the power of love all over “TIM.” Let that be his legacy.

@BYMIKEJONES, criticizing Toronto

Raptors coach Nick Nurse’s timeout in the final minutes of Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The Raptors, who could’ve won the series Monday, were leading an exhausted Golden State. The break gave the Warriors a needed breather, and they won the game 106-105.

“I believe we finally have the answer to who the real dad is in ‘Mamma Mia!’ ” @ISTEINTRAUM, connecting the hit movie musical and HBO’s

“Big Little Lies,” both of which feature Meryl Streep. Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgard, above right, plays one of Streep’s former love interests and potential father of her daughter in “Mamma Mia!” His son, fellow actor Alexander Skarsgard, bottom right, played Perry Wright in the first season of “Big Little Lies.” Streep now plays Wright’s mother. Fans argue the casting solves the paternity mystery in “Mamma Mia!’”

“They did something stupid, then instead [of] figuring out how to not do something stupid they just quit instead.” @MYCHILLER, blasting The New York

Times after it announced Monday it would stop publishing political cartoons in its international edition. The move comes after an anti-Semitic cartoon was published in April. The decision was slammed, especially since its global cartoonists — who didn’t draw the offensive cartoon — were let go.

“Jaclyn Hill’s new lipsticks have more hair than Dr. Phil.” @KIKI_THE_TIKI, joking about beauty

YouTuber Jaclyn Hill’s makeup line. Customers quickly noticed issues with Hill’s lipsticks after they were released earlier this month. They reported beads, holes, fine hairs, crumbling and spots that some said appeared to be mold. Hill said Saturday the hairs were fibers from white gloves used in quality control, but has remained silent on the other issues.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) It’s best to start at the beginning today, but you may not be able to do that. You’ll want to make a statement. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Productivity is a main issue throughout the day. Yours is high, as expected, but you may have to push others to increase their output. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Whether or not you work at home, you will want to maintain communications with those who are keeping the home fires burning today. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’re getting in the mood for some fun in the sun, but external forces may not be cooperating just yet. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Nostalgia proves inspiring to you today, but you must guard against being drawn back so far you cannot see your own future.



SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You may be facing certain situations today that you simply cannot combat. It’s best to accept certain difficult realities and just move on. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) If you’re not willing to ask for help today, then you’re not likely to get the help you need. With help you can achieve almost anything.

FOUR RACK TOTAL Make a 2-7-letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Certain trends have robbed you of your enthusiasm perhaps, but today you can get it back with the help of a certain special friend.

TODAY: It will be another mostly sunny day with low humidity and light breezes from the southeast. Those dew points again will reside in the upper 40s to low 50s, as air temperatures rise through the 70s. Watch for some high clouds to increase later in the afternoon, but this will still be a nice day, given the ideal temperatures and humidity.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Any delays can be quite serious today; you’ll want to watch the clock and be sure everything is done on time. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You may be willing to do something quite unusual for someone you’ve only just met. Is this just a one-off?

When being Miss Universe isn’t enough …

Mick verifies he is, in fact, immortal Mick Jagger said he’s “feeling pretty good” in his first interview since undergoing heart surgery this spring that forced the Rolling Stones to push back their upcoming North American tour. “Been rehearsing a lot lately in the last few weeks,” Jagger told Toronto radio station Q107. “This morning [I did] a bit of gym. Nothing crazy. Then I go into rehearsal with the rest of the band.” The tour begins June 21. (EXPRESS)

Model Olivia Culpo has topped the 2019 Maxim Hot 100, the magazine announced Monday. Culpo posted the cover of Maxim’s Hot 100 issue to her Instagram account, writing: “I’ve always looked at the Maxim Hot 100 with admiration. There have been so many smart and successful women featured who have inspired me and my career in countless ways which makes this cover so meaningful to me. It still doesn’t feel real! Thank you so much @maximmag.” The 2012 Miss Universe winner joins the likes of Kate Upton, Hailey Baldwin and Stella Maxwell in finishing atop the list, the rest of which has not yet been revealed.

Teddy Geiger and Emily Hampshire have called off their engagement, according to Page Six. “They are over,” a source said. The singer-songwriter and “Schitt’s Creek” actress revealed they were dating in September and announced their engagement in November.

Former New York Rangers forward Sean Avery was arraigned on one count of criminal mischief in a Manhattan court Monday after being accused of using his scooter to hit a car that was blocking a bike lane. “If I need to be the poster boy for defending the bike lanes, I will absolutely do that,” Avery told Page Six. “We need to be able to just bike in freedom.” (EXPRESS)

“Queer Eye” star Jonathan Van Ness told Out magazine in an interview published Monday that he identifies as nonbinary. “The older I get, the more I think that I’m nonbinary — I’m gendernonconforming,” he said. “Like, some days I feel like a man, but then other days I feel like a woman. ... I think my energies are really all over the place.”



Jonathan opens up on identity: ‘I’m nonbinary’
