Hapless gator lured into captivity with the old ‘bait-and-switch’

‘Freak accident’ hardly begins to convey what happened here

A giant squirrel sculpture has sparked controversy in Almaty, Kazakhstan, the BBC reported Wednesday. The squirrel — a 40-foot straw and wood sculpture with a steel frame, designed by South African sculptor Marius Jansen van Vuuren and U.K. artist Alex Rinsler — cost about $67,000, some of it from public funds. Some residents said the money could have been put to better use elsewhere. The squirrel gave a beady stare but had no comment. (EXPRESS)

D.C.’s flashback to the ’90s MUSIC The undisputed king of D.C. cover bands draws on an all-’90s repertoire. At a recent concert at the Clarendon Ballroom, guys in button-down shirts pumped their fists to the chorus of “Mr. Jones.” The skronky guitar riff intro of “Just a Girl” elicited screams. The crowd busted out off-kilter dance moves while sing-shouting “Wannabe” and “No Scrubs.” Its sold-out concerts are equal parts raucous wedding reception, the last night of a holiday weekend in Dewey Beach and a dance party to a WASH-FM playlist. Its name? White Ford Bronco — after the infamous vehicle O.J. Simpson rode in during his pursuit by Los Angeles police.

Premier cover band White Ford Bronco sells out hottest clubs

The all-inclusive party vibe has helped sustain the band for 10 years and more than 600 gigs, placing White Ford Bronco outside the usual “cover band” circuit. In recent years, White Ford Bronco has sold out some of D.C.’s hottest venues, including

the 9:30 Club, Rock and Roll Hotel and Lincoln Theater. Seth Hurwitz, the owner of the 9:30 Club, has said that he won’t book acts that aren’t cool enough for his club. Since 2012, the landmark venue has welcomed White Ford Bronco multiple times.

Steve Lambert, who books bands for DC9 and Rock and Roll Hotel, and has White Ford Bronco at the Hotel several times a year, is also a fan. “They are the sole cover band that I book, for the most part,” he says. “They just want to have a good time and their fans to have fun.” A key element of White Ford Bronco’s appeal was — and remains — its approachability. “There was an untapped market for a party,” guitarist and singer Diego Valencia says. “We were that ball of energy, and everybody would come and be swinging from the rafters.” Concertgoers have been known to corner them at the bar with requests between sets. “Rarely do we ever stick to a setlist,” Valencia says. “If someone wants to hear a song, we can do it and make that person’s night.” FRITZ HAHN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

After tragedy, offers to help ANNAPOLIS Journalism is a competitive field. Getting the story first and right is gold. Spouses and friends who work for competing news outlets have been known to use sharp elbows with each other. But after the horrific shooting at the Capital Gazette, in which five staffers were killed June 28 in the newsroom near Annapolis, journalists from across the country — The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR, the Boston Globe and others — have been lining up to help the community newspaper. Journalists emailed the paper and asked what they could do, and others simply showed up and said, “Put me to work.” “I’ve gotten offers from all over the country,” said Baltimore Sun editorial page editor Andrew A. Green, who is coordinating the effort. “They are coming and saying, ‘No amount of work is too much, no shift is too heinous, use me however you need to.’ ” The 31-person Capital newsroom lost five employees, and

In the weeks since five employees of the Capital Gazette were fatally shot June 28, dozens of journalists have offered to help keep the paper running.

those who survived are committed to the paper and working hard, but traumatized. The Capital and the Sun are sister publications owned by the Baltimore Sun Media Group. The papers have shared resources in the past, and more so since the shooting. Reporter Chase Cook tweeted the day of the shooting: “I can tell you this: We are putting out a damn paper tomorrow.” And every day after that. To help in that effort, journalists

from across the country have been setting their own lives and jobs on hold. The volunteer journalists have gotten permission from their news organizations, which are paying them regular salaries while they help out. “I feel it was a privilege to come up here,” said Carl Fincke, an editor at the Virginian-Pilot, who is on his second week editing stories for both the Sun and the Capital. He said he is doing it to support his colleagues, and also in memory of the Capital staffers who lost their lives: editorial page editor Gerald Fischman, 61; veteran columnist Rob Hiaasen, 59; sportswriter John McNamara, 56; sales assistant Rebecca Smith, 34; and editor and community reporter Wendi Winters, 65. In the Capital newsroom, the plan is to mobilize an army of volunteer journalists at least through the summer to allow staffers to regain some footing and give them some support as they work through the first stages of grief and trauma, Green said. “It’s evolving because a lot of people have reached out to us,” Green said. “There are so many offers to help across the board from fellow journalists.”

Floreen joins executive race as an independent MONTGOMERY COUNTY Democrat Nancy Floreen said Wednesday she will run for Montgomery County executive as an independent, challenging her leftleaning County Council colleague Marc Elrich, the Democratic nominee, and triggering a potential split among Democrats in the affluent Washington suburb. Montgomery’s 1 million residents have not elected a nonDemocrat to the top political job since 1974. But Floreen, an atlarge council member, has been elected countywide four times. She could be a formidable opponent for Elrich, a progressive with strong union backing who also holds an at-large council seat and has supported rent-control

laws and charging impact fees to developers. Floreen’s decision to drop her longtime Democratic affiliation to run as an independent reflects her belief that “it would be a disaster for Montgomery County if Marc Elrich was elected” as county executive. Elrich narrowly defeated

Potomac businessman David Blair in the June 26 Democratic primary, a six-way contest that was not decided until late Sunday. Blair has until late next week to request a recount. Republican Robin Ficker will also be on the ballot in the fall, and some Democrats worry Floreen’s decision could cause a split in the Democratic votes and open a path to a Republican victory. Although several prominent business leaders have said they will back Floreen, most Democratic elected officials in the county who have taken a position so far say they will support Elrich in the name of party loyalty. “I am friendly with both. I thoroughly respect both,” Council member Sidney Katz said. “But when you come through a primary, that is the right way to do it.” RACHEL CHASON (THE WASHINGTON POST)

local House Republicans join D.C. Council in attempt to overturn measure THE DISTRICT Democrats who run D.C. and their ultraconservative GOP foes in Congress found something they agree on: annulling an hourly wage hike approved by District voters. House Republicans on Wednesday joined local lawmakers in attempting to overturn Initiative 77, which would increase wages for servers, bartenders

and other workers who rely on tips. It passed with the support of 56 percent of D.C. voters in the city’s June 19 primary. U.S. Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., who leads the hard-right House Freedom Caucus, and Gary Palmer, R-Ala., have proposed amendments that would block the city from spending money to implement the ballot measure. The move comes a day after a Democratic majority on the D.C. Council backed legislation to repeal the new law. The maneuvers by

but now find themselves on the same side of a contentious issue. Because of D.C.’s unique status as a federal district, Congress has the power to overturn local laws and spending decisions. The Council is planning to hold a hearing on the repeal of Initiative 77 when lawmakers return from summer recess. And some say there’s no reason for federal lawmakers to get involved. “Congress should allow the local legislative process to play out,” said Council Chairman Phil Mendelson.

Reunions via DNA carry risk Reliance on the tests to reunite migrants can be harmful, experts warn

Major colleges stop requiring ACT, SAT essays

PATRICK SEMANSKY (AP)

IMMIGRATION The Trump administration’s use of DNA testing to match migrant children separated from their parents is justifiable as a last resort, medical experts say, but raises a host of ethical problems. That includes the risk of damaging the family fabric by revealing that an adult thought to be the biological parent really is not. A federal judge in California on Tuesday said DNA testing should be limited to cases in which the parent-child relationship can’t be established through documents such as birth certificates and passports. The government had argued that DNA testing is faster than authenticating documents, and protects children from being handed to someone who may not be their biological parent. Officials said testing on 102 migrant children under 5 years old revealed five cases in which adults claiming to be the parent actually were not, including two in which the results came as a surprise to the adults. Ethicists say that’s just one situation where problems arise. DNA testing “is one of the few tools to fix this miserable mess,” said Arthur Caplan, head of the division of medical ethics at the New York University School of Medicine. “But it would be the height of irresponsibility to do it without competent counselors

A mother and son from Guatemala who were split up hold hands after being reunited last month in Linthicum, Md.

used to dealing with these kinds of genetic discoveries.” Thomas Murray, president emeritus of the Hastings Center in Garrison, N.Y., said “misattributed” fatherhood, and even motherhood, is more common than people realize. DNA testing is ideal for determining biological parenthood, but “a direct genetic tie is not the only — or even in all cases the best way — of determining who is genuinely in caring parental relationship with a child,” Murray said. “This could actually hurt the child.” Nothing could be further from the government’s intent, said Chris Meekins, a Health and Human Services Department official helping to oversee the

court-ordered reunification of more than 2,000 children separated from parents at the border. Not only is DNA testing fast, taking about a week, but Meekins said it also protects children from being returned to someone who may not be their parent, and who could do them harm. Background checks on parents in immigration custody have turned up eight cases of people with serious criminal violations, and one credible allegation of child abuse, he said. “HHS could have transferred every child out of their care to a parent currently in [immigration] custody if we did not take into account child safety,” Meekins said. “Our process may not be as quick as some would

like, but there is no question it is protecting children.” But U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego said Tuesday the practice should be curtailed. The judge said DNA testing needed to be done only when parent-child relationships can’t be proven through other ways. Sabraw, who ordered the reunification of families, said the government can use DNA testing but solely when necessary and with parental consent. Samples should be destroyed in seven days and not used for any other purpose. Ethicists say the government’s DNA testing also raises questions of privacy, informed consent and whether counseling is provided to families. RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR AND ELLIOT SPAGAT (AP)

AN EPIC DISCOVERY

Slab could be oldest excerpt from ‘Odyssey’

Greece’s Culture Ministry said Tuesday an inscription on a clay slab unearthed at the birthplace of the ancient Olympics could be the oldest written excerpt ever found from the “Odyssey,” Homer’s epic poem. The ministry said an initial estimate dates the slab, inscribed with 13 verses, to the Roman period, possibly before the third century. The slab was found near the Olympia sanctuary, where the Games were held from 776 B.C. to A.D. 393.

EDUCATION The SAT and ACT essay tests began with fanfare in 2005, a bid to assess the writing chops of college-bound students under the pressure of a clock. Now, many colleges say time’s up for those exams. With a few notable exceptions, the consensus in higher education is that the tests are becoming an afterthought even though hundreds of thousands of high school students still take them every year as one of the grinding rituals on the road to college. Princeton and Stanford universities last week became the latest to end requirements for prospective students to submit an essay score, following Dartmouth College and Harvard and Yale universities. Those schools are dropping the requirement because they wanted to ensure that the extra cost of essay testing did not drive applicants away. Others have resisted requiring the essays because they doubted the exercise revealed much. Fewer than 25 schools now require the essay scores, according to some tallies. Brown University, as of Friday, was the lone holdout in the Ivy League. Janet Rapelye, Princeton’s dean of admission, said students are still welcome to send in essay scores, but the university will now require applicants to send a graded sample of high school writing, preferably in English or history.

On Wednesday, the social media service said it would begin removing large numbers of Twitter profiles that had been included in people’s follower counts — even though the profiles had been frozen by the company’s security team for suspicious behavior. Twitter said the most popular accounts could experience a “significant drop” in followers over the next week. Twitter appeared to get a head start on the purge Tuesday night: President Trump lost about 100,000 of his 53.4 million followers, and former President Obama lost about 400,000 of his 104 million followers. The move by Twitter is the latest in a series of hard choices the company is making to prioritize cleaning up its platform — rife with spam, trolling and other questionable practices — over metrics that inflate the service’s popularity. The company said the effort would reduce follower counts by about 6 percent across the service. Twitter has 336 million users logging in monthly, but many of the frozen profiles were not active at least once a month. The company’s Legal, Policy,

Crackdown will result in fewer followers for celebrities, politicians

Twitter has started removing frozen profiles from users’ follower counts.

Trust and Safety Lead, Vijaya Gadde, acknowledged that some users might be disappointed, but said the move was necessary to regain trust. “Most people will see a change of four followers or fewer; others with larger follower counts will experience a more significant drop,” she said. “We understand this may be hard for some, but we believe accuracy and transparency make Twitter a more trusted service for public conversation.” Last week, The Washington Post reported that Twitter was suspending more than 1 million accounts a day, part of a major shift to lessen the flow of disinformation and promote what CEO Jack Dorsey calls “healthy conversations.” But the journey has not been

easy, and this latest decision to sweep frozen profiles from follower counts may be the most painful to the company’s user base of celebrities, journalists, politicians and business leaders. The accounts that will be removed could be locked for a variety of reasons, Twitter said, usually stemming from the company detecting sudden changes in behavior. This could include tweeting a large volume of unsolicited replies, tweeting misleading links, or if a large number of users block an account after being mentioned by it. The company sometimes locks an account if officials detect that the user is inputting email and password combinations from other services posted online. ELIZABETH DWOSKIN

Three poisonous books were found at the library of the University of Southern Denmark. The books, which feature covers made with high concentrations of arsenic, are from the 16th and 17th centuries and cover a variety of topics. Researchers accidentally made the discovery when they X-rayed the books to try to determine whether any old Latin texts had been used in the binding. But their scans revealed the green paint covering the works contained the poison arsenic. The researchers don’t suspect nefarious ends. Arsenictinted green paint was common through the 19th century.

Trump trashes allies After saying Germany is ‘being captive to Russia,’ he asks NATO to double defense spending goals

Navy expands women’s choice in hairstyles

GEOFFROY VAN DER HASSELT (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)

BRUSSELS President Trump ripped into NATO allies Wednesday, slamming Germany for its dependence on Russian energy and demanding that nations double their military spending commitments. European diplomats have been worried about continued U.S. support for NATO. But even as Trump hit allies, he also signed on to efforts to strengthen the alliance against the Kremlin and other rivals, as well as a statement that the alliance does not accept Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea. Trump’s spending demand, during a closed-door meeting of NATO leaders, would increase defense targets to 4 percent of each country’s gross domestic spending — more than what the U.S. channels toward its military. It was not clear whether he was serious about a new standard or whether he was using the number as a negotiating tactic. The push came hours after Trump smashed Germany for “being captive to Russia” because it imports much of its natural gas from Russia. That tirade, over breakfast with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, was rare in its bitterness. “We have to talk about the billions and billions of dollars that’s being paid to the country we’re supposed to be protecting you against,” Trump said, referring to European purchases of Russian natural gas. Despite the contentiousness, Trump agreed to a 23-page declaration that Stoltenberg said would guide a more robust NATO defense for years to come. “We do have disagreements,

Trump will have more NATO meetings today, then travel to Britain to meet with Prime Minister Theresa May, right.

but most importantly, we have decisions that are pushing this alliance forward and making us stronger,” Stoltenberg said at the conclusion of the first of two days of meetings in Brussels. “At the end of the day, we all agree that North America and Europe are safer together.” NATO leaders are still concerned that Trump will make concessions to Russian President Vladimir Putin when the two meet Monday in Helsinki. Trump has complained bitterly about Europe’s lagging defense spending, saying that NATO nations are taking advantage of U.S. military largesse at the same time they are offering unfair trade terms to U.S. businesses. Only eight of 29 NATO countries are on track to meet pledges of spending 2 percent of their GDP on defense this year. Washington spent 3.6 percent last year. When he has talked about it in recent days, Trump has rounded

Back in the U.S. Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer issued a joint statement describing President Trump’s “brazen insults and denigration of one of America’s most steadfast allies, Germany” as “an embarrassment.” Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch also took issue with Trump: “I don’t agree with that. Germans wouldn’t agree with that. They are a very strong people.” (AP)

up to 4 percent. A favorite target of Trump’s ire has been Germany, which has not met its NATO spending commitments and has granted permits for a second natural gas pipeline to Russia. Germany’s leadership has said the pipeline is a private business decision and it has been reluctant to interfere. The accusation of Russian influence may have been particularly biting for German

Chancellor Angela Merkel, who grew up in Communistcontrolled East Germany. “I myself experienced that a part of Germany that was controlled by the Soviet Union, and I am very happy today that we are united in freedom as the Federal Republic of Germany,” Merkel told reporters as she entered NATO. “We decide our own policies and make our own decisions.” At one point, Stoltenberg appeared reduced to spluttering as Trump cut him off after he started to explain that allies traded with Russia even during the Cold War. Earlier in the exchange, Trump demanded credit from Stoltenberg for forcing an increase in NATO defense budgets. “We’re supposed to protect Germany but they’re getting their energy from Russia,” Trump told Stoltenberg. “So explain that. And it can’t be explained, and you know that.” MICHAEL BIRNBAUM AND SEUNG MIN KIM (THE WASHINGTON POST)

MILITARY The Navy says it will now allow servicewomen to sport ponytails and other hairstyles, reversing a policy that long forbade women from letting their hair down. Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson said it makes the Navy more inclusive. Many black women had asked for changes to the female grooming standards. Lock hairstyles, or ropelike strands, are also now allowed. Wider hair buns, too. And women can wear ponytails while in uniform. Capt. Thurraya Kent is the senior member of the working group that recommended the changes. The group told the Navy that adding grooming options would eliminate a distraction, be more inclusive of different hair textures and enable people to keep their hair natural instead of processing it chemically. Kent, who has been in the Navy for nearly 26 years, said her hair has been an issue throughout her career, whether it’s figuring out what to do with it while she’s deployed or trying to quickly make sure it conforms to regulations after exercising. She said she’s very encouraged that Navy leaders both listened and understood. Lt. Cmdr. Jess Cameron said that while allowing new hairdos may seem like a small thing, it sends a larger message. “I think it’s a step forward,” she said. JENNIFER MCDERMOTT (AP)

nation+world Nonbinding measure signals GOP’s desire to rein in Trump’s agenda POLITICS The Senate on Wednesday resoundingly voted to seek an expanded congressional role in overseeing President Trump’s tariff decisions, a symbolic rebuke reflecting growing GOP alarm over the president’s trade war. The 88-11 vote came on a nonbinding measure asserting “a role for Congress” when Trump imposes tariffs in the name of

national security, as he’s done with steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada, Mexico and the European Union. Although the provision has no power to force any changes from the White House, it represents Republicans’ first concrete step toward reining in a protectionist agenda that has upended decades of GOP support for free trade. Meanwhile, China’s government vowed Wednesday to take “firm and forceful measures” as the U.S. threatened to expand tariffs to thousands of Chinese imports such as fish

sticks, apples and French doors. China gave no details, but there are fears it could attempt to disrupt operations of American automakers, retailers and others that see China as a key market. A possible second round of tariff hikes announced Tuesday by the U.S. Trade Representative targets a $200 billion list of Chinese goods. That came four days after Washington added 25 percent duties on $34 billion in Chinese goods, and Beijing responded by increasing taxes on the same amount of American imports. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Mario Mandzukic buried the winning goal for Croatia in the 19th minute of extra time.

MCCOY ACCUSED

Croatia keeps churning Team’s third win in extra time extends England’s World Cup frustration to 52 years CROATIA 2, ENGLAND 1 (OT) Croatia, a 27-year-old country of 4.3 million people and 23 superb soccer players, will vie for the sport’s most treasured trophy, the World Cup. With a 2-1 extra-time victory over England on Wednesday in Moscow, the Croatians will attempt to become the smallest nation to win the championship since Uruguay in 1950. France awaits Sunday at the same venue, Luzhniki Stadium. In reaching the final for the first time, Croatia extended England’s disappointment in major tournaments to 52 years. The Three Lions had gone ahead in the early moments, but Croatia drew even midway through the second half. And in

the 19th of 30 additional minutes, Mario Mandzukic smashed an angled, 6-yard shot past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. Ivan Perisic, who had kicked the equalizer off Sime Vrsaljko’s cross in the 68th minute, made it possible by winning a header at the top corner of the penalty area. Mandzukic beat two defenders and met the ball in stride for left-footed glory. The celebration spilled into photographers’ row, burying one poor shooter in a mass of white jerseys. England will play Belgium for third place Saturday in St. Petersburg, Russia. Since winning the 1966 title, the Three Lions have gone 13 World Cups without reaching the

final (and in that time, they’ve gone to the semifinals just twice). Their record in the other major competition, the European Championship, has been even worse: no finals since the event began in 1960. Wednesday began with great promise: a goal in the fifth minute. Kieran Trippier has drawn

comparisons to David Beckham for his ability to cross the ball with precision accuracy. His right foot is also weaponized for set pieces and, with a free kick from 25 yards, the Tottenham defender scored his first international goal. But Croatia regrouped after conceding the goal, and poor decisions bedeviled England, which was fortunate to remain level with a ravenous foe. Pickford left himself stranded off his line after an ineffective punch in the 84th minute, but the Croatians let him off the hook with a wayward shot. Harry Kane could have won it for England in stoppage time but failed to make solid contact with a clear header off a set piece.

Eight-time champion wastes match point as Anderson scores upset

WIMBLEDON Roger Federer was a point away from a rather tidy, straight-set victory Wednesday in London. One lousy point. A nd then, over the next two-plus hours of a quarterfinal, all the way until the fifth set reached its 24th game,

everything came apart for the eight-time champion. In a stunning turnaround in an unfamiliar setting — No. 1 Court instead of Centre Court — the top-seeded Federer blew a thirdset match point and, eventually, all of his big lead in a 2-6, 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11 loss to No. 8 Kevin Anderson. The whole tussle took 4 hours, 14 minutes. Federer was leading 5-4 in the third set when, with Anderson serving, he got to match point.

OLI SCARFF (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)

Federer stunned in quarterfinals Roger Federer had won 34 straight sets at Wimbledon before losing three.

Federer managed to return a 134 mph serve, but on his next stroke, he shanked a backhand. “I had my chances,” Federer said, “so it’s disappointing.” This was only the third time in

Federer’s 20 years of contesting Grand Slam matches that he lost after taking the first two sets; the other two defeats came in 2011. The Swiss superstar had won 32 straight sets at Wimbledon,

a run he stretched to 34 before faltering. Federer, 36, entered the day 4-0 against Anderson and had never lost a set to the 32-year-old from South Africa. “I just kept on telling myself, ‘I have to keep believing.’ I kept saying that today was going to be my day, because you really need that mindset taking the court against somebody like Roger,” said Anderson, the runner-up at last year’s U.S. Open. Anderson, who has never won a major, will face John Isner in the semifinals Friday.

Shahab [Farivar], the [co-] owner, is great, and he always recommends it. It’s a day off, so maybe I’ll have a beer. They also have these cookie ice cream almost sandwiches, so I’d get that. And I’d then stop by my fiancee’s work in Georgetown.

Our favorite coffee spot is The Coffee Bar [in Shaw], so I’d stop by there to grab a latte. On Sundays they have a little dog party in the afternoon, so my fiancee and I would bring Ham, our French bulldog, and sit at the coffee bar for an hour or so to let him play with other dogs.

Steve Birnbaum D.C. UNITED DEFENDER

Steve Birnbaum will always be a Southern California kid at heart. After D.C. United drafted the defender in 2014, the nation’s capital presented no shortage of culture shock. “Everything was just so fast-paced,” says Birnbaum, 27. “I would ride my skateboard to the Metro and I’d be wearing shorts and a hat or whatever. Everyone would be in suits … staring at me like, ‘Does this guy have a job?’ ” Well, yes: Over five professional seasons, Birnbaum has earned MLS All-Star honors, made 11 appearances for the U.S. national team and regularly worn the captain’s armband for a United club that will christen its new stadium, Audi Field, on Saturday. He also can now call himself a true Washingtonian, having relocated from Arlington to Logan Circle two years ago with his fiancee, Jeanne Shewmaker, the director of merchandising at Georgetown boutique Tuckernuck. While there’s no soccer on Birnbaum’s D.C. dream day, the sports world still looms large. I’d then get home in Logan Circle and ride my bike from Logan to Peacock Cafe in Georgetown, which is my favorite restaurant in the city — especially for lunch and brunch. I usually get the Sophia Loren, a turkey sandwich.

For dinner, my fiancee and I would definitely hit our favorite restaurant, which we go to literally once every two weeks: Le Diplomate on 14th Street. They treat us awesome there, and we can walk from our house because it’s two blocks away. We’d split a bottle of red wine, and I usually get the steak frites or the burger — the burger is great there — and my fiancee would get the shrimp salad. I’m a big baseball guy, so I’d like to go to a Nats game. I grew up playing baseball and that’s a big deal for me. I want to be behind home plate, where you can see the pitch actually come, and you have to have peanuts and a hot dog at a baseball game. We’d then go out and just meet up with friends and grab a drink on 14th Street. For dessert, it’s Jeni’s Ice Creams on 14th. They give you all of these tastings, so by the time you get your ice cream, you’re full. It’s awesome. (AS TOLD TO THOMAS FLOYD/EXPRESS)

The cast of ‘Heavy Metal’

1811 14TH St NW www.blackcatdc.com @blackcatdc JULY/AUGUST SHOWS

No need to don skinny jeans and tease your hair to see “Heavy Metal” at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. The exhibit, the fifth in the museum’s Women to Watch series, is literally about metal — specifically, sculptures made with materials like steel, bronze and pewter. Smelting, soldering and other metalworking processes have traditionally been considered man’s work, exhibit curator Virginia Treanor says. As something of a corrective, “Heavy Metal” showcases the skill and ingenuity of 20 contemporary female sculptors from the U.S. and around the world. “I was really struck by the variety of work that was out there in metal and the variety of appearances metal takes on and what these artists were able to create,” Treanor says.

After artist Venetia Dale came across a plastic keychain ornament depicting a teddy bear in an armchair, she made hundreds of duplicates in pewter and pressed them together until they formed a smooth, solid mass. “I think of her work as memorializing these everyday moments of our lives,” Treanor says.

This sculpture, made of found objects encased in a steel frame, is the approximate shape and size of artist Susie Ganch’s outstretched arms. Inside the frame are buttons, beads, plastic sheep and baby-doll arms. “It’s her way of visualizing the molecular makeup of her being,” Treanor says.

‘Inverted Star,’ by Paula Castillo

The Massachusetts-based Dale cast a cheap plastic basket in pewter, an alloy that was commonly used in her state’s Colonial past. Dale likes working with it because it’s an unassuming material, almost an underdog. “A silversmith friend of mine describes pewter as the Velveeta of metal,” Dale says. “From a metalsmith perspective, it has a lowbrow reputation.”

To create this piece, sculptor Paula Castillo welded together industrial byproducts and finished them with automotive paint. “It has this wonderful matte quality to it. It looks like it could be made of felt or ceramic,” Treanor says. When viewed from above, the piece looks like a three-dimensional star with the points turned inward.

50 years of remarkable champions

National Museum of American History, 1400 Constitution Ave. NW; through January, free.

Eunice Kennedy Shriver awards a gold medal to runner Adonis Brown of Baltimore in 1972.

WALLY FONG (AP)

In the 1960s, most people with intellectual disabilities were institutionalized — a form of segregation that sentenced them to a life with no real home, no work, no education and usually no respect. Certainly no competitive sports. And then Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the sister of President Kennedy, invited 30 or so special-needs kids to her backyard, where they swam, played soccer and shot hoops. “She saw potential where the rest of society did not,” says Katherine Ott, a curator in the medicine and science division at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. “It was a marvelous response to segregation.” That backyard gathering evolved into the Special Olympics, a now-global movement celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. “Some people think, ‘Look what these athletes can do — isn’t that sweet or nice?’ and they don’t really take their athleticism seriously,” Ott says. “But these are full-on athletes who train vigorously.” The exhibit “Special Olympics at 50,” which opened Tuesday at the museum, highlights Shriver and four athletes who illustrate the powerful ways sports can fight stigma and discrimination. ANGELA HAUPT (FOR EXPRESS)

Shriver’s advocacy was personal, inspired by her sister, Rosemary, who had intellectual disabilities. The two swam and sailed together, but there were limited organized opportunities for Rosemary. When Shriver eventually began inviting young people to her backyard to compete, she called the gathering “Camp Shriver.” The first Special Olympics competition was held at Soldier Field in Chicago in 1968, and the organization now boasts nearly 5 million participating athletes in 172 countries. Still, Shriver’s presence in the exhibit is minimal, though her hat and clipboard are on display. “She’s there as the originator, but it’s more about the athletes, which is in the spirit of her,” Ott says. “She wasn’t an egotistical person, and so it was never about her.”

There’s no maximum age limit for Special Olympics competitors, and North Carolina athlete Sheets, who was born with Down syndrome, took full advantage: He was there for the first Games in 1968 and competed until 2009, winning around 250 medals. He competed in events like downhill skiing, golf, swimming and weightlifting (his ski hat and a competition bib are on display in the exhibit). Pretty impressive for a guy whose doctor once predicted he would never even learn to tie his shoes. “He played every possible sport, and he competed pretty much all his life,” Ott says. “His parents adored him. Their basement was like a shrine to his medals.” Sheets died in 2015 at age 62.

If there were such thing as the home team in Special Olympics, D.C. would be rooting for Thornton, who was born and raised in the city. After being abandoned at birth, he was sent to Forest Haven, a D.C.-run institution for people with intellectual disabilities. There, he met his future wife, Donna, but they weren’t allowed to wed because they were wards of the District of Columbia. Participating in Special Olympics “gave him confidence and discipline, and helped him fight for them to be able to get married,” Ott says. “Which they did, in 1984. They have grandchildren now.” Off the field, Thornton began working at the DC Public Library in 1978, and President Obama appointed him to the President’s Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities in 2014.

When Claiborne was born in 1953, she was partially blind and had an intellectual disability; she wasn’t able to walk or speak until age 4. At the public high school she attended in York, Pa., she was bullied. “She would run away from [her tormentors], and that got her running,” Ott says. Claiborne started competing in Special Olympics in 1970 and has finished more than 25 marathons since. “She was able to channel her anger and isolation into athletics,” Ott says. In 2000, she was the subject of a Disney TV movie called “The Loretta Claiborne Story,” and she continues to give motivational speeches across the country. A T-shirt Claiborne wore in the 1972 International World Summer Games in Los Angeles is among the items in the exhibit.

Meet gymnastics wunderkind Dockins, 31, who’s captured medals in events like balance beam, floor routine, uneven bars and vault. (So, basically everything.) She began taking gymnastics lessons when she was 8, and she’s competed around the world, including in the 2007 World Summer Games in Shanghai and the 2011 Games in Athens, Greece. And Dockins, who has Down syndrome, isn’t just a successful athlete: She’s also a coach in her Kentucky hometown. “She coaches all kinds of kids, not just kids with disabilities,” Ott says. “She’s a really great gymnast.” The leather grips and leotard she wore in Shanghai are on display in the exhibit.

SADIE DINGFELDER | THE STAYCATIONER

On a recent Friday, I ran up the 85 steps to the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site — I was late for my 12:30 tour — and landed right in the middle of a fascinating history lesson. Over the next two hours, I would learn all about the great American orator and abolitionist while also gaining a better grasp of the lead-up to the Civil War, Reconstruction and the racial apartheid that followed. My teacher? A tour guide and National Park Service ranger who, perhaps inspired by Douglass’ gift for dramatic speech, had just begun a spirited overview of Douglass’ life. “By the time Mr. Douglass had arrived in D.C. on a permanent basis in 1872, he had already made a name for himself: He was an adviser to presidents. He held highranking government positions. He was chief editor of a newspaper,” the ranger said. Douglass’ decision, in 1878, to move from Capitol Hill into Anacostia — then an all-white suburb of D.C. — was just one of many ballsy moves that also included beating up a slave master, running an abolitionist newspaper and sending his own sons to fight in the Civil War. The park ranger ushered us into Douglass’ home, where an astounding number of the

objects were owned by the man himself. That includes Douglass’ eyeglasses on his writing desk and the canes beside it, the piano in the parlor around which the Douglass family gathered for evening music-making, and the kitchen table, where Douglass sat and conferred with other black leaders, including Harriet Tubman and Ida B. Wells. One new addition to the decor is a large portrait of Douglass’ first wife, Anna Murray Douglass, which was painted in 1922. You won’t learn much about her from Douglass’ three autobiographies, our guide said, but she was a key part of Douglass’ story. A free black woman living in Baltimore, Anna Murray Douglass was an extremely savvy businesswoman, and she gave Douglass the money he needed to escape slavery in 1838. The two married that year, and they took the name Douglass so that Frederick could shed his birth name — Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey — and avoid being found and recaptured, our guide said. However, in his first autobiography, published in 1845, Douglass revealed his birth name, which allowed his former owners to find him. Douglass fled to England, where he could haggle over the price of his own freedom in relative safety. “The bid started out at

$5,000 and Douglass said, ‘You want $5,000? You can wait for it but you aren’t going to see Douglass again,’ ” our guide paraphrased. They eventually landed on the figure of $711.66, and Douglass returned to the U.S. In that same room, our guide pointed out a portrait of Douglass’ second wife — a white woman. (“Typical,” commented a 20-something black woman in our group.) “Seventeen months after Mrs. Anna died, Mr. Douglass married Mrs. Helen Pitts,” our guide said. “Is that a controversial marriage? You better believe it was.” The ranger added that, as an interracial couple, the two couldn’t legally travel together in much of the U.S. As we moved to the library, the ranger noted that Douglass had nearly 3,000 books — a remarkable thing for someone who, as an enslaved child, was forbidden to read. As a boy, Douglass learned to read from white children, whom he plied

Pro tip: Sign up for a tour at nps.gov/frdo. with snacks. “How many 10-year-olds do you know who would say, ‘Mom, Dad, I’ve hired myself a reading tutor’?” our guide said. Later, he gave a remarkably efficient overview of how African-Americans remained essentially enslaved even after the Civil War. “The 13th Amendment read that slavery or involuntary servitude — except as punishment for crime — is abolished,” he summarized, running over the middle bit as if it was the side effects in a drug ad. “People hear the first part, they hear the back part, but they don’t hear the exception. Overnight, misdemeanors became felonies. If I left a job yesterday and was starting a new job tomorrow, today I could be arrested for vagrancy. And they would particularly start

to arrest individuals during harvest time. The penitentiaries would lease them out to plantations,” he said. As we moved to the kitchen and then upstairs to the bedrooms, our ranger focused more on the day-to-day lives of people in the late 1800s. The tour ended back in the foyer, where Douglass was standing when he died of a heart attack in 1895, at the age of 77 or so. (Like many enslaved people, Douglass didn’t know his exact birthday.) Before sending us on our way, our guide offered some concluding thoughts. “This is a great story. Not because it’s a great black story. Not because it’s a great American story. It’s a great human story.” I recommend checking out the site. Think of it as D.C.’s answer to Monticello or Mount Vernon — though, I must say, I find Frederick Douglass to be even more inspiring than the better-known patriarchs who lived in those homes.

Easy does it this summer

Every summer, we promise ourselves that this will be the year we take that road trip. We swear we’ll get our work done early this Friday so we can make it to the rooftop bar before the line forms. We look longingly at a friend’s selfie in a field of sunflowers and think, “I’m going to do that, too.” And then we don’t. This year is different. Keep your promises with these easy summer adventures. FRITZ HAHN AND WINYAN SOO HOO (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Honor the U.S. with patriotic music and high-flying rifles

Acres of towering sunflowers bloom in mid-July at the McKeeBeshers Wildlife Management Area, illuminating the green expanse with lemon-yellow petals. You’ll want to frolic among them and post a dozen pictures to Instagram. The best times to visit are at sunrise or at dusk, when the lighting is better for photography and you avoid the heat of the day. Wear comfortable shoes, because the grounds can be soft and uneven after a summer thunderstorm, and bring bug spray — the boggy Potomac wetlands attract mosquitoes. (Parking areas are located off River Road; the GPS coordinates for designated spots can be found on the area’s website.) McKee-

You will gasp at some point during the Marine Corps Sunset Parade, probably when a member of the Silent Drill Platoon begins spinning a 10-pound M1 rifle through the air like it’s a baton and executes precision tosses with another Marine. Units from the Marine Barracks have been hosting weekly sunset parades, featuring music by “The Commandant’s Own” (the Marine Drum & Bugle Corps), at the Marine Corps War Memorial in Rosslyn since 1956, but construction has relocated this year’s parades to the plaza in front of the Lincoln Memorial. It’s a more accessible place to watch this patriotic ceremony. For the best views, get as close to the base of the steps as possible. 2 Lincoln

Maryland’s Montgomery County is home to one of the region’s most scenic brewery crawls. Start at Brookeville Beer Farm, left, find a seat on the shady patio and grab a sampler of beers (five for $11). When you’ve finished, cross the parking lot for a look at the hop vines and beehives. Head north on Georgia Avenue and make a pit stop at the cash-only Sunshine General Store, which looks like an abandoned gas station but holds an old-school lunch counter where you’ll find some of the biggest and best burgers in the area. Get yours to go and bring them to Waredaca, a horse farm that opened a brewery in 2015. Waredaca’s beers incorporate ingredients including farmgrown hops, honey and local malt. Settle in at a picnic table with a view of the horse pasture and a lake, and you might not want to go home.

Explore a real blast from the past In an era when every new museum features touch screens, animatronics and interactive experiences, there’s something refreshing about Dinosaur Land. Visiting the 55-year-old attraction is like entering the land that time forgot — or at least the tourist attraction that time forgot. No sound effects, no lifelike animation of a velociraptor trying to rip off your face. Just 50 fiberglass sculptures, many in dramatic poses: a giganotosaurus snatching a flying pteranodon from the air the way a golden retriever grabs a Frisbee, or a group of triceratopses battling a Tyrannosaurus rex. If dinosaurs aren’t your thing, there’s also an enormous praying mantis, a shark the size of a school bus and a King Kong with an outstretched paw that’s perfect for photo ops.

Indulge with a nostalgic summer treat In the summer, is there a better way to enjoy an ice cream cone than standing outside an old-timey, mom-and-pop dairy bar? Jimmie Cone in Damascus, Md., right, hasn’t changed much since it opened in 1962, dishing densely creamy, almost custardlike soft-serve. The most popular order is the simple vanilla twist topped with rainbow sprinkles. On a recent weeknight, children ran around with butterscotch and chocolate syrup still sticky on their cheeks, while older couples sat quietly in front of a group of teenagers gossiping over cones in the back of a pickup truck. In Virginia, Nathan’s Dairy Bar, which opened in Manassas in 2001, has lines out the door rain or shine. But it’s worth the wait to try the dipped cones, brownie sundaes, sherbet, milkshakes and soft-serve. The shop’s owners, who are dog lovers, welcome furry visitors, and they even serve “pup cups,” a free ice cream cup for dogs with a bone-shaped treat as a spoon. Jimmie Cone,

Watch a play or take salsa lessons under the stars In western Maryland, nature serves as the perfect backdrop at Sky Stage. The open-air theater, housed in a fire-damaged, preRevolutionary War building in Frederick, has the sky and the stars as its ceiling. A cascade of plants envelops the space, creating an intimate and organic-inspired venue. Artist Heather Theresa Clark said she set out to create a “dreamy living sculpture” and reinvent the once-abandoned space for patrons and performers to conceive of new ways to use it. In the summer, Sky Stage hosts drum circles, Tennessee Williams plays, salsa lessons and pop-up art galleries, among other programming organized by the county’s arts council. Sky Stage, 59 S.

It kicks off this week with “Field of Dreams” and continues with favorites like “The Goonies,” “The Wizard of Oz” and 1978’s “Superman,” which proves that Christopher Reeve was the best Kal-El ever.

Jane Austen Outdoor Film Series

Alexandria Comcast Outdoor Film Festival

Jane Austen, inventor of the romcom, gets some of the adaptations of her books onto the big screen this summer thanks to Dumbarton House’s festival, now in its seventh year. Screening this time around are 1995’s “Sense and Sensibility,” 1996’s “Emma” and 2005’s “Pride & Prejudice” — because apparently they didn’t want to show the entire 1995 miniseries, even if it does have Colin Firth in a wet shirt. Buying tickets in advance is encouraged; you can bring a chair but you’ll have to sit in the back. Dumbarton House,

This isn’t so much a “festival” as it is “two movies over two nights,” but since the first night’s movie is the extraordinary “Coco” and the second night’s is the awesome “Wonder Woman,” we’ve decided not to nitpick. Bring your (low) beach chair or a blanket — and, in the case of “Coco,” your tissues — and settle in for a night or two on the water. After “Coco,” go ahead and call your mom; after “Wonder Woman,” go ahead and buy yourself a pair of gold cuff bracelets.

Bastille Day celebrations Various locations in D.C.; Sat., various times.

Bastille Day, France’s national holiday celebrating its independence, is as good an excuse as any to party in D.C. Le Diplomate (1604 14th St.) is hosting two soirees Saturday: the family-friendly “La Grand Fete,” with face painting, crafts and a glace cart from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; and “Bastille Noir” at 9:30, when DJs and drag queens take center stage. Le Grenier (502 H St. NE) offers free Kronenbourg beers from 4 to 6 p.m., $3 pastis all night and a $35 three-course menu. Opaline, the bar at the Sofitel (806 15th St. NW), opens its outdoor space from 2 to 4 p.m. for a picnic with “tricolore” snowcones (blueberry, coconut and raspberry) and a rosé and champagne happy hour.

Since debuting a decade ago, London’s Randomer (aka Rohan Walder) has consistently delivered rough-edged techno full of precisely programmed percussion, synth swooshes and gut-rumbling bass. The DJ/producer’s tracks don’t leave much time or room for listeners to overthink things. Instead, they pummel revelers with sound until they dance the pain away.

Staycation, Gordon Sterling and The People, nah., Mary-eL

The most satisfying thing about “Fundamentals” — the first wax that Tara Rodgers has released under her nom de techno, Analog Tara, in 15 years — is how balanced it feels. Top to bottom, this is well-crafted dance music. Maybe that’s because Rodgers has spent the past two decades thinking hard about her craft: She quite literally wrote the book on women in electronic music, 2010’s “Pink Noises.” Since then, she has kept active in recording and in academia, quietly producing “homemade techno” in the Maryland suburbs. Ten Tigers Parlour, 3813 Georgia Ave. NW; Fri., 10 p.m., free.

Gypsy Sally’s is hosting this showcase of D.C. musicians, many of whom participate in the club’s Gypsy Sally’s Jam sessions — or play in different bands with each other. Staycation, the funk rock band that hosted a Radiohead tribute last month, headlines with support from the new psychedelic soul project Gordon Sterling and The People, alt rock act nah.

Since 2013, seeing Britney Spears live has required traveling to Las Vegas, where the pop demigod has packed a concert hall nightly. The “Toxic” singer’s summer tour is a chance to catch a version of that high-rolling show without boarding a plane: Expect theatrical smoke (choreographed, vocal, maybe literal) and songs, plucked from a 20year career, that please the crowd, from the “… Baby One More Time”-era glucosespikers to her more recent trysts with EDM.

EXHIBITS

‘Sense of Humor’ The displays at the National Gallery of Art don’t usually elicit chuckles, but curators hope that changes with the new exhibition “Sense of Humor.” Included are Renaissance caricatures, English satires and 20th-century comics, all created with the intent of making people laugh. The exhibition draws from the museum’s collection, and features pieces from the likes of Francisco Goya, William Hogarth, Alexander Calder and Saul Steinberg.

entertainment Sleeping through beauty: Why doze off mid-show? The esteemed Manhattan theater might as well have been a dormitory. Up and down the rows and aisles, people could be seen in various states of drowsy repose. The woman next to me slept through the entire first act. She opted not to return for the second. My habit is to look left and right and momentarily study

the faces of those who have yielded to the possibly involuntary temptations of mind and body, and have turned off their interior lights. It’s certainly not the most reliable barometer of receptivity to a production’s charms, or lack thereof: I cannot count the number of occasions on which I’ve watched a playgoer sleep through a show — and then stand at the curtain call to lead the rest of the audience

highly regarded director of contemporary and classical plays, and what he told me shed light on how even one sleeper can take the air out of a performance. Sometimes, he said, actors can lose their edge at the sight of dozing spectators. When the actors exit the stage, the idea can be conveyed to other members of the cast waiting to go on that, well, tonight is just not a good house. And being human, the cast, the director said, might perceptibly deflate. The sandman, it seems, works in nefarious ways. Follow Peter Marks on Twitter @petermarksdrama

Second arrest made in XXXTentacion’s death

Russell Simmons facing new rape accusation

Chadwick Boseman joins police drama ‘17 Bridges’

Alexia Norton Jones accused music producer Russell Simmons of rape in a first-person account published by Variety on Tuesday. Jones, the granddaughter of publisher W.W. Norton, came forward about the November 1990 incident after seeing Simmons accused of sexual misconduct by numerous women. Simmons, 60, has denied all of the accusations. (EXPRESS)

Chadwick Boseman will star in the New York police drama “17 Bridges,” STX Entertainment announced Wednesday. The 40-year-old will play a disgraced NYPD detective thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer. “Avengers: Infinity War” directors Joe and Anthony Russo will produce the film, which will be directed by Brian Kirk from a script by Adam Mervis. (AP)

BRYNN ANDERSON (AP)

A second person has been arrested in the June shooting death of emerging rap star XXXTentacion, authorities in Florida announced Wednesday. Michael Boatwright, 22, is facing first-degree murder charges, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. Boatwright was initially arrested last week on an unrelated drug charge. Dedrick Williams, 22, also has been charged in the killing outside a Deerfield Beach motorcycle shop. CURT ANDERSON (AP)

trending “Calling Kylie Jenner a ‘self-made billionaire’ is like claiming you made soup from scratch because you opened a can and reheated it.”

“Cannot overemphasize how little it matters if a Supreme Court nominee is a ‘good guy’ while driving in the car pool.” @ANNEHELEN, disagreeing with

the premise of a guest opinion piece published by The Washington Post about Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The piece, titled “I don’t know Kavanaugh the judge. But Kavanaugh the carpool dad is one great guy,” is by Julie O’Brien, whose kids go to school with Kavanaugh’s children.

@PEDESTRIANPOET, reacting to the Forbes cover featuring Kylie Jenner as part of its coverage of female billionaires in America. Forbes said Jenner is set to become the “youngest self-made billionaire ever.” Many took issue with the designation “self-made.” Others, like @KimiKouture, defended the makeup mogul: “Discrediting Kylie for becoming a 21-year-old billionaire is like discrediting Lebron’s basketball success cuz he was born 6’8.”

DIFFICULT

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Your willingness to “try anything once” may be put to the test today. What a friend offers is likely to confound even those who know you best. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Issues of freedom are highlighted today. Don’t let yourself be boxed in by someone whose agenda doesn’t align with yours. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’ve been focusing on practical matters lately, but today you have a chance to do a little valuable daydreaming. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You are measuring gains in a way that confuses those in competition with you. They are likely to come to you with a challenging proposition. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You may have to arrange for a special endeavor at some distance from a primary partner. Make detailed plans.

WEDNESDAY’S SOLUTION

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) One of your close friends is going through something that only you can help with — but you mustn’t step in until you are asked. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) A situation arises that demands of you more than common sense; you must do a little homework before you’re able to deal with it properly.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Cooperation between you and a rival takes everyone by surprise today. The results are likely to be memorable.

TODAY: Higher pressure builds in again, turning our skies partly to mostly sunny and holding the humidity in check. Temperatures should be slightly cooler but still seasonably warm, with highs in the mid- to upper 80s. Skies may turn partly cloudy again tonight, with lows making a return to the 60s.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Provocative behavior will achieve your desired result today — unless you take it too far, in which case you may find yourself in hot water. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You find someone standing in your way today, but you won’t know just how you will be affected until you’ve stopped and assessed the situation.
