ASSATEAGUE ISLAND, MD. A rare hatching of about 100 loggerhead sea turtles happened at Assateague Island in Maryland, wildlife experts said. The sea turtles came from one nest on the island and have recently made their way out to sea, according to the National Park Service. Experts said there are several unique factors with this group of loggerhead turtles, which are endangered. Typically, loggerheads nest on sandy beaches from Florida to North Carolina and rarely make their nests north of Virginia. So having a nest in Maryland is uncommon. While sea turtle nesting has happened in recent years along the shorelines of national lands, National Park Service officials said that this is the “first confirmed hatch and the largest number of hatchlings ever recorded” on a national park

He said this event “underscores the increasing importance of undeveloped beaches along Assateague Island to sea turtles.” Loggerhead turtles are protected under federal law. Their nests and the hatchlings are common at national parks shores

in such places as Cape Hatteras in North Carolina, Padre Island in Texas and Cape Canaveral in Florida. Some areas at Assateague, where the latest hatchings have been, are closed to visitors for a bit. Officials said they are not expecting any additional sea turtle nests to hatch this season, according to a statement. But they’re hopeful that some will hatch next summer.

Bikeshare gears up to grow 100-plus new stations are planned for 2018 as competition rolls in

D.C. Council votes to allow dogs on patios ASTRID RIECKEN (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)

TRANSPORTATION Washington’s bike rental system is expanding next year, promising to remain competitive as new, high-tech rivals enter the region’s bike-sharing market. Capital Bikeshare is slated to widen its reach in 2018 with the addition of more than 100 stations, hundreds more bikes and a larger coverage area — investments that are worth more than $5 million in federal, local and private funds. “When we launched in 2010 there were only 100 stations and two jurisdictions,” said Kimberly Lucas, the District’s bike-sharing program coordinator. Now, Capital Bikeshare is available in the District and Alexandria, plus Arlington, Montgomery and Fairfax counties. Prince George’s County and Falls Church are joining next year. And they are coming online at a critical time for bike sharing. D.C. last month opened its market to four dockless bike-sharing companies, allowing each of them to bring as many as 400 bikes to city streets. Some of the startups are eyeing expansion into the Washington suburbs. Transportation officials are keeping close watch on the upstarts, not only to determine whether the dockless systems are safely and orderly adapted to the region’s needs, but also to see whether they can coexist with

Capital Bikeshare is slated to invest more than $5 million in expanding its service in Maryland and Virginia.

Capital Bikeshare. The dockless model gained popularity in China in the past year but is relatively new in the United States. So far the new companies have reported solid ridership. LimeBike reported 2,800 users and over 5,200 trips during the inaugural week. One bike was so popular it was ridden 39 times. “Right now we are looking at it as a very favorable complement to what we have on the ground,” said Henry Dunbar, director of Arlington’s active transportation programs, which include Capital Bikeshare. “We see the benefits of having additional bikes go places where you can’t put the docks in,” he said. “There is some competition, obviously, so Capital Bikeshare

20K dockless D.C. bikes? A week after the dockless bicycle arrived in D.C., Toby Sun, co-founder of LimeBike, was already talking about the possibility of demand so high that the city would need thousands of them — 20,000, to be exact. The new companies combined have more than 1,200 bicycles on city streets. LimeBike, Spin and Mobike say they each have deployed 400 bicycles, the maximum number allowed under city permits. Said Sun: “Four hundred is not enough. For this market, at least 20,000.” Nearly 5 percent of D.C. commuters make their trips on two wheels, according to census data, putting the city on pace to top Portland as the U.S. city with the highest share of bike commuters.

will have to stay competitive, but I don’t think in any sense we are thinking this is going to be the beginning of the end of us.” Doubters can look at next year’s expansion, officials say, which will put Capital Bikeshare in new territory from National Harbor to Hyattsville in Maryland, and Reagan National Airport and Falls Church in Virginia. “We are the proven entity. The bikes that we have … they are holding up seven years now and still going strong,” Dunbar said. “The whole dockless system in North America has only been around for a few months. We haven’t even seen these bikes go through one winter to see how they are going to hold up.” LUZ LAZO (THE WASHINGTON POST)

THE DISTRICT The District’s dogs and dog lovers had reason to celebrate Tuesday when the D.C. Council unanimously decided to end a ban prohibiting canines from bar and restaurant patios. For years, the ban went unenforced, and a host of dogfriendly bars and restaurants thrived in the increasingly young and affluent city. But the health department began enforcing the ban in September, telling the owner at The Midlands, a beer garden in Park View, and Wonderland Ballroom in Columbia Heights that the pups on their patios had to go. “It was really sad not having all those fuzzy faces around,” said Midlands proprietor Peyton Sherwood, who received a visit from a city health inspector Sept. 19. “So today is really nice. It was awesome to see everyone working together to get this done so quickly.” His dog, AndyPants —The Midlands’ unofficial mascot — will be excited to return to his doghouse and friends on the patio, Sherwood added. Health Committee Chairman Vincent C. Gray introduced emergency legislation to end the ban, which he called the most recent example of “regulatory overreach” on the part of Mayor Muriel Bowser. Gray’s legislation, dubbed the “Dining With Dogs Emergency Declaration,” lets business owners decide whether to allow dogs on their patios. RACHEL CHASON (TWP)

VIRGINIA Ed Gillespie vows that if he’s elected governor of Virginia, he will make lowering the high cost of college a priority. But for years, the lobbying firm he ran, Quinn Gillespie & Associates, fought to do the exact opposite. At a turning point for the student loan industry a decade ago, the firm pressed Congress to kill legislation aimed at lowering the cost of college. The bill aimed to take millions of dollars in subsidies that had been given to private lenders and instead use that money for grants for low-income college students and to lower education loan interest rates. Quinn Gillespie clients from the loan industry — Nelnet, Bank of America and College Loan Corp. — were trying to protect the profits they earned from financing student loans on the government’s behalf. Though the lobbying campaign proved unsuccessful, Gillespie’s critics say it raises questions about his commitment to college affordability, a key part of his platform. They also worry that the Republican’s ties to Nelnet, which now manages a portion of the federal government’s

Gillespie has never taken a position on having the state regulate student loan companies, and his campaign spokesman, David Abrams, declined to discuss the candidate’s stance on the issue.

How big is too big? New study sizes up scale of workforce have a financial incentive to get and keep people locked up, deprived of their liberty. Tony Reardon, president of the National Treasury Employees Union, points to the IRS mandate to use private debt collection agencies. “Twice this program has failed because of high cost and poor quality,” Reardon says, “yet Congress ignored the history and ordered a third attempt, knowing that highly trained federal employees are better equipped to collect the debts, and uniquely authorized to provide assistance and options to low-income taxpayers.” Broken down, the 9 million included about 2 million employees, 3.7 million contractors, 1.6 million grant employees, 1.3 million active-duty military personnel and 500,000 Postal Service employees in 2015. The 7 million figure excludes the Postal Service, which does not receive congressional appropriations for its operations, and the military. An important takeaway: “The study reminds us that the nation depends on a very large blended workforce that includes many more contract and grant employees than federal civil servants,” Light writes. “The question is not whether

How big is the federal workforce? Much bigger than you think. A new study by Paul C. Light, professor of public service at New York University and the author of “The True Size of Government,” says the government’s “blended” workforce is 7 million to 9 million strong — including contractors and grantees. Light does not diminish the work of anyone serving the government, but he does raise a serious issue about the impact of so many non-employees. “Although Washington’s blended workforce has an imperative role in the nation’s success, it may have grown so large and poorly sorted that it has become a threat to the very liberty it protects,” Light writes. The blended workforce “may have become too complicated and codependent to control.” The threat to liberty, he explains, “comes from the pressure to maintain and expand missions that are primarily for the benefit of one or more parts of the blended workforce and not necessarily for the benefit of the public.” Think private prisons.

we have too many government employees, but [do] we have the right blend to deliver the mission at the best price, value and performance.” The debate over the cost of using contractors instead of feds is also addressed. Light writes, “Contract and grant employees are often promoted as a low-cost alternative to federal employees, but the data suggest quite the opposite.” Even if an individual contractor earns less than a comparable federal employee, the overhead contractor

companies charge means they are not a bargain, he argues. “We are lucky to have this blended workforce and should be celebrating its performance as a whole even as we ask tough questions about who can provide the best price, etc.,” he writes. Rather than pretending only feds can do the job or contractors are always less expensive, “what I want to know is whether the blend is working for the public interest.” Follow Joe Davidson on Twitter @joedavidsonWP

Did Trump advisers break the law by using personal email? Each week, The Washington Post’s “Can He Do That?” podcast examines the powers and limitations of the presidency.

Q. I’m pretty new to the government, and I’ve been hearing co-workers talk about “use or lose” leave. Is that some kind of leave no one told me about? A. They’re referring to the general policy that a federal employee can carry only 30 days of vacation time — what the government calls annual leave — from one year to the next. It’s not a consideration for relatively new employees, who get 13 days per year during their first three years. But the rate goes up to 20 days per year for those with between three and 15 years, and 26 days for those with 15 years or more. Unused leave accumulates year to year, but any above 30 days that an employee does not take by the end of the leave year — not a calendar year; the 2017 leave year ends Jan. 6, 2018 — is forfeited. (It can be restored for limited reasons, and some employees can carry forward more than 30 days.) Those who won’t be able to use their excess leave on time might want to consider donating it to a leave transfer program to help federal employees facing emergencies, such as those arising from the recent hurricanes.

President hails Maria response

WASHINGTONPOST.COM TO YOUR HEALTH

Breast cancer’s decline averts 322K deaths

PUERTO RICO President Trump on Tuesday told Puerto Rican officials they should feel “very proud” they haven’t lost hundreds of lives like in “a real catastrophe like Katrina,” while adding that the devastated island territory has thrown the nation’s budget “a little out of whack.” Trump’s remarks came as he touched down in San Juan for his first visit to Puerto Rico since the storm ravaged the island nearly two weeks ago. He has faced criticism for the slow federal response to the natural disaster, although he praised himself earlier in the day for his administration’s “great job” and “A-plus” response to Hurricane Maria. “Every death is a horror, but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina, and you look at the tremendous — hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that died, and you look at what happened here, with really a storm that was just totally overpowering, nobody’s ever seen anything like this,” Trump said, before turning to a local official to ask how many people had died in the storm. “What is your death count as of this moment? 17? 16 people certified, 16 people versus in the thousands.” Trump then praised officials in the room over the death toll. “You can be very proud of all of your people, all of our people

working together,” he said. The president also seemed to fault the small island for imperiling the United States’ budget by requiring hurricane relief funds, saying, “I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack.” Senate Minority L eader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., rebuffed Trump’s comments about how the Puerto Rican hurricane response is affecting the federal budget, noting that the president never made such comments in Texas or Florida following hurricanes there. “Mr. President, enough,” Schumer said. “Stop blaming Puerto Rico for the storm that devastated their shores. Roll up your sleeves and get the response on track.” Trump’s response to Maria offers a sharp contrast with his actions in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, which ravaged Texas. Trump visited Texas twice in the week after Harvey’s landfall, first in his role as commander in chief, checking in on relief efforts, and then as a “consoler in chief,” offering hugs and prayers. Though Trump and his administration initially offered a flurry of action as Maria tore through Puerto Rico, the president then effectively went dark, decamping for a long weekend at his private club in Bedminster, N.J.

After Trump’s impromptu remarks to officials, his motorcade drove along a highway lined with broken highway dividers and hundreds of downed trees. He also stopped by a church to meet with dozens of locals who asked for selfies, shouted that they loved him and held signs that read: “Proud Americans,” and “God bless You, Mr. President.” Trump stood behind a table filled with relief supplies, including flashlights, rice and paper towels. At one point, he started tossing rolls of paper towels into the crowd as if they were basketballs. Trump’s mixed reviews for his response so far, however, did not stop him from lavishing praise on himself and his administration. He said, “I think it’s now acknowledged what a great job we’ve done, and people are looking at that.” ASHLEY PARKER AND JENNA JOHNSON (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Breast cancer death rates declined almost 40 percent between 1989 and 2015, averting 322,600 deaths, the American Cancer Society reported Tuesday. Breast cancer death rates increased by 0.4 percent per year from 1975 to 1989, according to the study. After that, mortality rates decreased rapidly, for a 39 percent drop overall through 2015. The report, the latest to document a long-term reduction in breastcancer mortality, attributed the declines to both improvements in treatments and to early detection by mammography. Between 2006 and 2015, death rates decreased for all racial and ethnic groups tracked. But there were variations. In 2015, the death rate for black women diagnosed with breast cancer was 39 percent higher than that for white women. While high, that’s an improvement; the number was 44 percent higher in 2011. The black-white disparity emerged in the 1980s, underscoring that black women have not shared the screening and treatment advances that have benefited white women. One reason, the report said, is that black women didn’t benefit as much from the development of tamoxifen, a drug approved in the 1970s, because they are less likely to have the kind of cancer treated with the drug.

Sources: Operatives exploited same tool U.S. businesses employ NATIONAL SECURITY Russian operatives set up an array of misleading websites and social media pages to identify American voters susceptible to propaganda, then used a powerful Facebook tool to repeatedly send them messages designed to influence their political behavior, say people familiar with the investigation into foreign meddling in the U.S. election. The tactic resembles what American businesses and political campaigns have been doing in recent years to deliver messages to potentially interested people. The Russians exploited this system by creating English-language sites and Facebook pages that closely mimicked those created by U.S. political activists.

The websites and Facebook pages displayed ads or other messages focused on such hotbutton issues as illegal immigration, African-American political activism and the rising prominence of Muslims in the U.S. The Russian operatives then used a Facebook “retargeting” tool, called Custom Audiences, to send specific ads and messages to voters who had visited those sites, say people familiar with the investigation who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share details from an ongoing investigation. People caught up in this web of tracking and disinformation would have had no indication that they had been singled out or that the ads came from Russians. One such ad featured photographs of an armed black woman “dry firing” a rifle — pulling the trigger of the weapon without a bullet in the chamber — the

sources said. Investigators believe the advertisement may have been designed to encourage African-American militancy and, at the same time, to stoke fears within white communities. Another ad showed an image of Democrat Hillary Clinton behind what appeared to be prison bars. A Facebook spokesman declined to comment on Russia’s exploitation of the Custom Audiences system. Facebook officials have previously said that they were caught off guard by the Russian propaganda campaign because the accounts, pages and ads appeared to be legitimate. “These are the same methods and sophisticated tools that the pharmaceutical companies were using, that big oil companies were using,” said Philip N. Howard of Oxford University’s Computational Propaganda Project. ELIZABETH DWOSKIN, CRAIG TIMBERG AND ADAM ENTOUS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Jalal Talabani, Iraq’s first Kurdish president, dies

Report: Flight 370 mystery is ‘almost inconceivable’

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments Tuesday for what could be a landmark case on partisan gerrymandering. The justices seemed split about whether they could find a “manageable” way of determining when politics plays too big a role in drawing legislative districts. Washington lawyer Paul M. Smith, representing challengers, told the justices that if they let Wisconsin’s redistricting plan stand, the court would create “a festival of copycat gerrymandering the likes of which this country’s never seen.” The deciding vote will probably be cast by Justice Anthony M. Kennedy.

Former Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, one of the country’s most powerful and unifying leaders and a man who spent much of his life fighting for the cause of the Kurds of northern Iraq, died Tuesday at a hospital in Berlin. He was 83. Talabani had been a frequent emissary to world capitals for the Kurdish people before and after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. As a Kurd, Talabani was the first non-Arab president of an Arab nation. Talabani’s death came just days after the semiautonomous Kurdish region held a landmark referendum vote for independence from Iraq. (TWP)

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau’s final report on the almost three-year search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 concedes that authorities are no closer to knowing the reasons for the plane’s disappearance, or its exact location. The report said that the continuing mystery over the fate of the plane and the 239 people on board is “almost inconceivable,” and “societally unacceptable.” The search for the plane, which disappeared on a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing on March 8, 2014, was abandoned in January. The plane was carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew. (AP)

U.S. expels 15 Cuban envoys Action is in response to mysterious illnesses of diplomats in Havana FOREIGN AFFAIRS The United States expelled 15 of Cuba’s diplomats Tuesday to protest its failure to protect Americans from unexplained attacks in Havana, plunging diplomatic ties between the countries to levels unseen in years. Only days ago, the U.S. and Cuba maintained dozens of diplomats in newly reopened embassies in Havana and Washington, powerful symbols of a warming relationship between longtime foes. Now, both countries are poised to cut their embassies by more than half, as invisible,

verbatim

unexplained attacks threaten delicate ties between the Cold War rivals. The State Department gave Cuba’s ambassador a list Tuesday of 15 names and ordered them out within a week, officials said, a move that aims to “ensure equity” between each nation’s embassy staffing. Last week, the U.S. announced it was withdrawing 60 percent of its own diplomats from Havana for their safety. The dual moves marked a sharp escalation in the U.S. response to attacks that began nearly a year ago and yet remain unexplained despite harming at least 22 Americans — including a new victim identified this week. Still, U.S. officials emphasized

they were not accusing Cuba of culpability or complicity, merely a failure to stop whatever is happening to Americans working out of the U.S. Embassy in Havana. Investigators have explored the possibility of a “sonic attack” harming diplomats through sound waves, but have discovered no device and identified no culprit. “We continue to maintain diplomatic relations with Cuba, and will continue to cooperate with Cuba as we pursue the investigation into these attacks,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said. Havana blasted the U.S. order, calling it “irresponsible” and “hasty.” In the Cuban capital, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez called a news conference

to again deny involvement and defend his country’s efforts to assist in the U.S. investigation. “The ministry urges the competent authorities of the U.S. government not to continue politicizing this matter, which can provoke an undesirable escalation,” Rodriguez said. The scope of the attacks has continued to grow. The U.S. disclosed Tuesday that the 22nd victim was confirmed Monday. In recent weeks, the State Department had said there were 21 individuals “medically confirmed” to be affected by attacks. Effects included harm to hearing, cognition, balance and vision. Some people had diagnoses as serious as brain injury.

SCIENCE Three U.S.-based scientists won the Nobel Physics Prize on Tuesday for detecting faint ripples flying through the universe — the gravitational waves predicted a century ago by Albert Einstein that provide a new understanding of the universe. Rainer Weiss, above, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Barry Barish and Kip Thorne of the California Institute of Technology won the 2017 prize for a combination of highly advanced theory and ingenious equipment design. The scientists were key to the first observation of gravitational waves in September 2015. “It’s a win for the human race as a whole. These gravitational waves will be powerful ways for the human race to explore the universe,” Thorne said. Ariel Goobar of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said the winners’ work meant “we can study processes which were completely impossible, out of reach to us in the past. “The best comparison is when Galileo discovered the telescope … and all of a sudden, we discovered that the universe was much vaster than we used to think,” Goobar said. With the technology that the three developed, “we may even see entirely new objects that we haven’t even imagined yet,” said Patrick Sutton, an astronomer at Cardiff University in Wales.

Attack ‘extensively’ planned Sheriff: Gunman spied on police with cameras as officers approached

GOP leaders say no action on gun control DAVID BECKER (GETTY IMAGES)

LAS VEGAS Authorities in Las Vegas said Tuesday that the gunman who killed least 59 people at a country music festival “extensively” planned the massacre, placing cameras in his suite and the hallway so he could see when police officers were closing in. “It was pre-planned, extensively, and I’m pretty sure that he evaluated everything that he did in his actions, which is troublesome,” Joseph Lombardo, the sheriff of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said at a briefing Tuesday. Lombardo said one of the video cameras linked to a tablet was hidden in a food service cart in the hallway outside the suite on the 32nd floor. Law enforcement officials said the purpose of that camera was apparently to give the gunman a video feed that would warn him when police were closing in. He apparently also set up a security perimeter behind him while firing round after round into the crowd below. Lombardo also said the department has opened an investigation into the unauthorized release of images that show the crime scene, including the bullet-riddled door to the suite used by the gunman, Stephen Paddock. Police said Paddock fired at hotel security before taking his own life. He apparently pointed a silver, black-handled

revolver into his mouth and pulled the trigger. In the photographs, obtained by the German Paddock newsmagazine Bild on Tuesday (see Page 1), a portion of Paddock’s two-room suite in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino is visible. A gun with a scope and a stand can also be seen inside the room. Lombardo declined to confirm whether the images were legitimate, but he said the department is trying to determine how the images were made public. Investigators have sifted through a chilling but baffling array of clues in the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history, trying to determine the chain of events

that caused a 64-year-old to gun down concertgoers from his suite overlooking the Las Vegas Strip. Lombardo has warned that the number of dead could rise, since more than 500 other people were injured. Police said Paddock arrived at the hotel Thursday, three days before the shooting. He took more than 10 suitcases into his suite, officials said. Paddock aroused no suspicion from hotel staff even as he brought in 23 guns, some of them with scopes. One of the weapons he apparently used in the attack was an AK-47 type rifle, with a stand used to steady it for firing, people familiar with the case said. Officials recovered another 19 guns, as well as thousands of rounds of ammunition and the chemical tannerite, an explosive,

at Paddock’s home in Mesquite, Nev. They also found ammonium nitrate, a chemical that can be used in bomb-making, in Paddock’s vehicle, Lombardo said. Police said they believe Paddock was a “lone wolf” attacker, though they were interested in speaking with his live-in girlfriend, Marilou Danley, 62. Danley was found outside the country — as of Monday afternoon, in Tokyo — and was not involved in the shooting. “We still consider her a person of interest,” Lombardo said. People close to the investigation said that in the weeks before the attack, Paddock transferred a large amount of money to someone in the Philippines, possibly his girlfriend.

COST OF GUN VIOLENCE

The amount of money that gun injuries cost the United States each year in emergency room and hospital charges, according to a study published Monday in the journal Health Affairs. The typical gunshot victim can expect to rack up more than $5,000 in emergency room costs, according to the study. If the injury is severe enough to warrant a hospital stay, the average cost balloons to nearly $100,000. And over 40 percent of gunshot victims lack insurance to pay for their care. (THE WASHINGTON POST) At least 45 patients at two Las Vegas-area hospitals remain in critical condition

POLITICS Republican leaders made clear Tuesday that Congress will take no action on gun legislation in the wake of the massacre in Las Vegas. They refused to entertain Democratic demands to expand background checks for gun purchases, but also shelved their own House bill that would have loosened access to gun silencers. “I think it’s premature to be discussing legislative solutions, if there are any,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said after the mass shooting that killed at least 59 people. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said there is no plan for the House to act soon on the silencer bill, which a Republicanled House committee backed last month. The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., said it would help hunters protect their hearing. The congressional inaction underscored the power of the National Rifle Association and the political stakes for lawmakers who maintain their support for the constitutional right to bear arms and fear any challenge to their fealty. Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif., tweeted: “It’s not ‘political’ to urge action to stop the regular killing of Americans by guns. It’s responsibility. Silence is the political choice.” Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., said action on guns after Las Vegas was unnecessary: “We are not going to knee-jerk react to every situation.” MATTHEW DALY (AP)

The lives lost in Las Vegas At least 59 people were killed in the mass shooting Sunday at a country music festival in Las Vegas, a tragedy that left behind loved ones around the country and the world. Details began to emerge Monday and Tuesday about some of those slain and the hundreds more who were injured after a gunman opened fire. Here are stories of some of those who died. (THE WASHINGTON POST/AP/EXPRESS)

Quinton Robbins, 20

Lisa RomeroMuniz, 42

From Henderson, Nev.

From Gallup, N.M.

When Robbins first clutched his chest, his girlfriend thought something was wrong with his sugar levels, since he was diabetic, she told his grandmother. They were on a date. She didn’t yet realize that a bullet had torn through his body.

Mike Hyatt, the superintendent of the Gallup-McKinley County Schools, said Romero-Muniz was “an incredibly loving and sincere friend, mentor and advocate for students.” She was a discipline secretary at Miyamura High School, and a wife, mother and grandmother.

Michelle Vo, 32 From Los Angeles

Vo only recently was introduced to country music. “Slowly she drifted toward it,“ recalled Diane Hawkins, 40, Vo’s oldest sister. “In country, the theme of each song is so sweet, she fell in love with it.” She attended the festival alone and bonded with a stranger, Kody Robertson, who tried to save her life.

Angie Gomez, 20 From Riverside, Calif.

She traveled from Southern California to the concert with her high school sweetheart to celebrate her new job as a certified nursing assistant, family friend Tyler Smith confirmed. Gomez was a cheerleader at Riverside Polytechnic High School.

Sonny Melton From Big Sandy, Tenn.

Melton, a registered nurse, died in the shooting, according to The Henry County Medical Center in Paris, Tenn., where he worked. He died shielding his wife, Dr. Heather Melton, who was with him when shots were fired, she told WZTV.

Sandy Casey, 35 From Redondo Beach, Calif.

Christopher Willemse and his fiancee, Casey, were attending the festival when the gunshots rang out. Casey said she’d been hit and couldn’t feel her legs. Willemse stuck his finger in the hole to stop the bleeding, and then carried her out, dodging the gunfire.

Rhonda LeRocque, 42 From Tewksbury, Mass.

LeRocque and her husband, Jason, had attended the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas before. This year, LeRocque’s aunt said, they made a last-minute decision to go back. They brought their 6-year-old daughter, Aliyah.

Charleston Hartfield, 34 From Las Vegas

Hartfield was a Las Vegas police officer, a member of the armed services, a father, youth football coach and published author, friends and family said. He was off duty when he was killed. “He gave up his life for this country,” a relative told the New York Daily News.

Jack Beaton, 54 From Bakersfield, Calif.

Once Beaton and his wife realized the firecracker sounds were bullets, he told his wife to “get down” and lay on top of her. He said, “I love you, Laurie.” She said, “I love you, Jack.” And then “he took a bullet” to save his wife’s life.

Vegas hospitals overwhelmed with victims LAS VEGAS The victims just kept coming. In cars, in ambulances waiting four or five deep, from the walking wounded to the barely alive, they arrived in droves. “I have no idea who I operated on,” said Dr. Jay Coates, a trauma surgeon whose hospital took in many of the wounded after a gunman opened fire from his 32nd-floor hotel suite Sunday night on a country music concert below. “They were coming in so fast, we were taking care of bodies. We were just trying to keep people from dying.” It was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, with at least 59 killed and 527 injured, some by gunfire, some during the chaotic escape. Scores remained in critical condition Tuesday. University Medical Center of Southern Nevada was one of many hospitals that were overflowing. “Every bed was full,” Coates said. “We had people in the hallways, people outside and more people coming in.” He said the huge, horrifying wounds on his operating table told him this shooting was something different. “It was very clear that the first patient I took back and operated on that this was a high-powered weapon,” Coates said. “This wasn’t a normal street weapon. This was something that did a lot of damage when it entered the body cavity.” AMANDA LEE MYERS (AP)

INJURY UPDATE

Linebacker Zach Brown, right, and corner Josh Norman stand out on a stingy Redskins defense.

DAN STEINBERG | THE WASHINGTON POST

Complete team: Battered defense still adds balance Mason Foster and Zach Brown stood in front of their lockers late Monday night and stared, amused, at Foster’s foot and middle toe. The toe was the color of grape jelly. The foot was purple, too, bulging like it had been stuffed with mini-marshmallows. Foster had also played through a shoulder that had been dislocated two weeks earlier. Have fun finding a prominent Redskins player who wasn’t hurt at some point in Monday night’s 29-20 loss to the Chiefs. Josh Norman had

a rib fracture. Robert Kelley sprained an ankle. Trent Williams left with a knee injury, although he later returned. Washington dressed nine defensive backs; at least five of them had to leave the field at various points. “Guys was dropping like flies,” said Brown, who got kneed in the face by an offensive lineman and had trouble opening his jaw after the game. Washington’s defeat was deserved. The song doesn’t go “Hail to the Redskins; hail (moral) victory.” The Redskins outplayed two of their first four opponents, and got outplayed in their two losses. A bye-week

record of 2-2 seems right. But the season’s first month was far more interesting than I’d have guessed, and that’s because the defense is far feistier than I ever imagined. If things go right, Washington could be one of the league’s more complete teams, something that hasn’t happened here in at least a decade. Think about the sequence in the first half when Norman and Bashaud Breeland leveled two Chiefs within seconds of each other, the sort of hits that make you gasp out loud. Or think about rookie defensive lineman Jonathan Allen bulldozing bodies with his buddy Matt Ioannidis. Or about Brown chasing down Kareem Hunt just short of the goal line. The Chiefs punted on their first three possessions, and the Redskins posted their third first-quarter shutout. Then Kansas City figured something out, even as Washington’s medical staffers ran on and off the field. Over the last three quarters,

there were so many “ifs,” many revolving around silly penalties away from the ball. Washington is still an “if” team: If this had happened, or if this hadn’t happened, maybe the result would be different. “We kind of had ’em on the ropes for a bit, but you can’t make that many mistakes,” Ryan Kerrigan said. If the Redskins had won this game — if Josh Doctson hadn’t dropped the go-ahead touchdown with less than 60 seconds left — people would be asking if Washington was the best team in the league. At 2-2, no one’s asking that. Maybe the Redskins will remain on this .500, what-mighthave-been treadmill. But you also can imagine something better now: an above-average offense joining an above-average defense to form an above-average team. That would’ve sounded silly in August. It doesn’t now.

CHARLIE RIEDEL (AP)

Norman (rib) might not miss a game Redskins cornerback Josh Norman is expected to miss two to four weeks after fracturing a rib in Monday’s 29-20 defeat in Kansas City, coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday. Under a best-case scenario, Norman wouldn’t miss a game, using the current bye week to heal and returning for the Oct. 15 home game against the winless 49ers. But Gruden made it clear that Redskins trainers and Norman would make the decision and that he wouldn’t be rushed back to competition if he were in danger of aggravating the injury. Gruden also said that left tackle Trent Williams, who briefly left the game with a right knee injury, would undergo an MRI exam. (TWP)

He also adjusted his grip and hit .325 over August and September with eight of his 14 homers. Last offseason, there was speculation that Gonzalez might be traded, given that his contract runs out at the end of this season.

Carr will miss 2 to 6 weeks with broken bone in back

Injury-riddled Mets demote pitching coach, fire trainer

Minnesota welcomes L.A. for decisive Game 5 tonight

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr will miss between two and six weeks after breaking a bone in his back during a 16-10 loss to the Broncos on Sunday. Coach Jack Del Rio said Monday that a CT scan showed a transverse process fracture in Carr’s back. Former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and the Panthers’ Cam Newton had similar injuries in 2014 and missed only one game each. E.J. Manuel, a first-round pick by Buffalo in 2013, showed some encouraging signs when he relieved Carr and connected on 11-of-17 passes for 106 yards. The Raiders (2-2) play the Ravens (2-2) at 4:05 p.m. Sunday in Oakland. (AP)

Two days after Terry Collins stepped down as manager, the Mets said Tuesday that longtime pitching coach Dan Warthen, 64, will not return in that role next year but has been offered another job with the club. Collins, 68, becomes a special assistant to the general manager. The Mets, who were plagued by injuries, said Ray Ramirez, the head trainer since 2005, won’t be back. Bench coach Dick Scott, first base coach Tom Goodwin and bullpen coach Ricky Bones will be given permission to speak to other teams. Hitting coach Kevin Long is expected to stay and has expressed interest in interviewing to be manager. (AP)

For the second consecutive year, the Los Angeles Sparks will travel to Minnesota to decide the WNBA championship. League MVP Sylvia Fowles scored 22 points with 14 rebounds to help the Lynx stave off elimination in an 80-69 win Sunday night, forcing a decisive Game 5 in Minneapolis tonight (8, ESPN). In Game 4, Los Angeles was outrebounded 48-28 and shot a paltry 5-of-22 from beyond the 3-point arc. Candace Parker, who finished with 11 points and eight rebounds Sunday, and the Sparks are hoping to become the league’s first repeat champion since L.A. did it in 2002. (AP)

CRITIC’S NOTEBOOK

Miley Cyrus carves out her niche

With ‘Now,’ the icon reclaims her voice after battling Lyme disease MUSIC After becoming a global icon and one of the world’s best-selling singers of all time, Shania Twain had to utter the scariest five words a vocalist would ever hear: “I may never sing again.” The queen of country pop contracted Lyme disease, which crippled her most prized instrument — her voice — and she thought her career was over. “It can kill you. And if it doesn’t kill you, it can give you a seriously degenerated quality of life for the rest of your life,” she says. But Twain, who has persevered since launching her career in 1993, was ready to do the work to rebuild her voice, and life. She trained with coaches and worked extensively on her vocals, comparing the experience to an athlete recovering from a major injury.

Twain tested her voice in various ways in the 15 years between her last album, 2002’s “Up!,” and her newest effort, “Now,” which dropped last week. She sang duets with Lionel Richie and Michael Buble for their albums; she completed a Las Vegas residency; and she launched a U.S. tour, reconnecting with the fans who have helped her sell more than 90 million albums worldwide. “I feel triumphant,” Twain says about her comeback. “I just feel like I’ve climbed this huge mountain and I made it to the top.” In the decade and a half between albums, Twain was busy raising her son and getting remarried. But she still wrote songs and collected poems, lyrics and melodies. She spent two years creating “Now,” working with four producers: Ron Aniello (Bruce Springsteen), Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran), Jacquire King (Kings of Leon) and Matthew Koma (Carly Rae Jepsen). Twain says she chose those collaborators because they co

THINKSTOCK AND GETTY IMAGES/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION

Shania Twain marks her next chapter She’s an open book Cindy Mabe, president of Universal Music Group Nashville, says “Now” is a reflection of Shania Twain’s entire life. “This is about her really framing her life and understanding where she is and how she fits into things and then sharing it with world,” Mabe says. “This is the most brave record she’s ever made.” M.F.

respected her decision to write each of the 16 tracks by herself: “I was motivated by the challenge of carrying the risk or the weight of doing it without any guidance or any influence, any feedback. That to me was the ultimate test of independence.”

The album’s lead single, “Life’s About to Get Good,” captures Twain’s energy: She’s happy and ready for her next chapter. The song peaked at No. 33 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, but Twain says she and her label aren’t feeling any pressure. “The industry has changed so much. It’s like comparing apples and oranges now,” Twain says of selling albums today versus the 1990s and early 2000s. “It’s just ust different and the tallying is comming from such a broad spectrum.” m.” A nd T wa i n hersel f h a s evolved, too. “I’m different now. I think nk differently now. … That’s why yI call the album ‘Now,’ ” she says. y . ys “This is me now.” MESFIN FEKADU (AP) AP)

Miley Cyrus says she named her new album “Younger Now” because she feels more youthful at age 24 than she did as a boundary-pushing teen. Make no mistake — these songs are far more mature than anything else she’s done. The ache of “Miss You So Much” is more believable than so much of what’s on country radio today, as she worries about loss over layers of echoing guitars. “Week Without You” is more classic country, which she shakes up with her swearing and imagery. And on the album’s title track, Cyrus seems to carve out a niche — part rock, part pop, the edge provided by her raspy voice — that she has all to herself for as long as she wants.

Tom Petty’s weirdness defined his Americana His look, that voice and those songs made the singer a true original

Even his most straightforward rock songs had a special Tom Petty twist.

KARL WALTER (GETTY IMAGES)

APPRECIATION “My musical quest [is] to get more and more purity into the music.” That’s something Tom Petty told me over the phone once. One might wonder if he died — on Monday in California at age 66 — pushing that boulder uphill. Because it was always the impurity of Petty’s music that made it feel so sublime. Even back in the ’70s, when he was just a blond smirk in a black leather jacket, Petty’s brand of Americana was already exuding its own mood. His rock-and-roll songs came coated in a thin residue of psychedelic strangeness. And they still glisten in the light. Some of it had to do with Petty’s thing for electric guitars that jangled and wheezed, and the rest of it had to do with his voice — an unmistakable mewl that could sound vaguely sinister, gently pleading or stylishly aloof. His songs were well suited for ubiquity, and they often found their way to you. Maybe you first encountered his voice while hotboxing to “Refugee” in the passenger seat of your buddy’s Camaro circa 1979. Maybe you found Petty loitering in Wonderland when the video for “Don’t Come Around Here No More” landed

on MTV in 1985. Maybe you heard “Free Fallin’” on the radio 10,000 times in 1989. Or maybe — and pity your soul — you first heard 1976’s “American Girl” more recently, once politicians made a habit of pumping it on the campaign trail. We probably consider Petty’s music to be quintessentially American because it wafted so easily across so many different American moments. Petty rose to renown alongside similar American boys making similar American noise — Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp — but unlike those blue-jeaned alphas, he used MTV to burnish his image as a troubadour burnout whose closet happened to be overflowing with cool sunglasses and freaky top hats. Looking different helped make Petty a superstar in

the ’80s, but sounding different is what made him last. E ve n wh e n h e t r i e d to straighten his edges, his music refused to give up its bends and curls. The mild warping on 1994’s “Wildflowers” is the very thing that keeps such a handsomely understated solo album from sliding into an exercise in tastefulness. For a rush of the known and the unknown, it’s hard to beat “A Thing About You,” a hardcharging love song from 1981 about intense yearning. “I’m not much on mystery,” Petty sings in the opening line, but it’s already too late. The mystery is all around him. From that point forward, the harder he tried to blast through it, the more of it he seemed to gather. CHRIS RICHARDS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

@CHICKANDTHEDEAD, tweeting in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting, comparing gun laws in the U.S. to the embargo on Kinder Surprise eggs. The chocolate eggs, which are available in Europe, are banned in the U.S. because they can be a choking hazard for children. British TV host Piers Morgan sparked the discussion on Tuesday when he tweeted about the irony of the candy’s ban in the U.S., where semi-automatic rifles are legal.

Military students at USU are not eligible to participate. If interested, please call (240) 630-0210 or email dietary-supplement-ggg@usuhs.edu
