In the news Trump wishes ‘Happy Memorial Day’ to US, Japanese troops ABOARD THE USS WASP (AP) — President Donald Trump on Tuesday wished “Happy Memorial Day” to U.S. service members aboard an American assault ship docked in Japan. They shouted “U.S.A. U.S.A.” Trump called them a “tough bunch of people” and dubbed them “daring and mighty warriors in the Pacific.” The president treated his appearance aboard the USS Wasp as a Memorial Day event because it was still Monday in the United States when he addressed hundreds of members of the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet. “I have to wish you all a very happy Memorial Day,” Trump said. “On this Memorial Day evening in the United States, Americans are concluding a sacred day of remembrance, reflection and prayer.” Before appearing on the USS Wasp, Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited a Japanese destroyer, the J.S. Kaga, docked nearby. Standing alongside Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Trump delivered the same “happy Memorial Day” message to the Japanese forces. Some veterans and their families don’t like the phrase “Happy Memorial Day.” They say they prefer that the federal holiday remain a somber occasion for the nation to honor those who gave their lives in service to the United States. “Our republic endures because of brave men and women who are willing to lay down their lives to defend us all,” Trump said. “Our freedom is earned through the blood and sweat and toil and sacrifice of great American patriots just like you.” Trump has come under sharp criticism for skipping ceremonial visits to cemeteries to honor America’s war dead on designated national holidays. Since then, the White House has been careful to show the public that he is marking occasions like Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Before leaving for Japan, Trump placed small U.S. flags near headstones at Arlington National Cemetery.

Remembering the fallen Community gathers to observe Memorial Day By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

Dozens of residents and veterans gathered Monday at Kenai’s Leif Hansen Memorial Park to recognize Memorial Day. For Al Helminski, a Vietnam veteran, Memorial Day is both a solemn and joyous occasion. “It means on one hand, a sad time for all those that we’ve lost, but a happy time that we have survived to be able to honor them and remember them,” Helminski said. The Memorial Day ceremony was hosted by the Veteran’s Coalition of the Kenai Peninsula. American Legion Post 20 Commander Gregory Fite, who served 23 years in the Army National Guard, said Memorial Day means everything to him. “We would not be the country we are today if people weren’t willing to sacrifice for our country,” Fite said. “We wouldn’t

Magnitude 5.8 quake strikes south of Homer

HOMER (AP) — A magnitude 5.8 earthquake struck southwest of the Kenai Peninsula Monday morning, but no damage has been reported. The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit around 1:50 a.m. at a depth of 40 miles. A dispatcher with the Homer Police Department said there were no reports of damage or injuries from the quake, which hit 55 miles southwest of Homer. There were more than 1,000 reports of people feeling the earthquake on the Geological Survey website. Devon Hilts, a clerk Families were invited to place flowers and wreaths in remembrance of fallen service at the Land's End Resort members at Kenai’s Memorial Day ceremony on Monday, at Leif Hansen Memorial in Homer, said that she Park.

Day at the beach Mouth to Mouth Wild Run and Ride celebrates communities, watersheds By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion

Many take the opportunity to recreate at the Kenai beach for granted. Not Will Steffe. Steffe attends Montana State University in Bozeman and recently arrived in the area to intern for Marathon Oil for the summer. He jumped at the chance to participate in the sixth Mouth to Mouth Wild Run and Ride on Monday. The event, put on by Cook Inletkeeper, offers a 10-mile run or fat bike ride from the mouth of the Kasilof to the entry to the Kenai beach off Cannery Road. There is also a 3-mile run that runs from the entry to the mouth of the Kenai River and back. The event drew 136 participants, just off the record high of 143 two years ago.

“I’m in a land-locked state, so running on the beach for 10 miles defi-

nitely appealed to me,” Steffe said after winning the men’s 10-mile run. “It

was a great way to enjoy the long weekend.” Last year, 10-mile run-

ners and bikers got a luxurious tailwind and stiff sand on a day when life truly was a beach. “Last year, it was a freeway,” said Jen Showalter, who won the women’s 10mile ride. Monday, competitors were greeted with a headwind and sand that started firm for the first 6 miles or so, but then had some extremely soft spots. There was also a smattering of rain that was, for the most part, respectful. “This much rain is fine,” said women’s and overall 10-mile run winner Megan Youngren. “Driving sideways rain is no good.” Tyle Owens of Sterling cruised to victory in the 10mile bike in 44 minutes, 51 seconds. Last year, his time was 32:34 and Owens said he was sick that day. Owens See RUN, page A3

Fairbanks contemporary artist sells across nation, world By SAM FRIEDMAN Fairbanks Daily News-Miner

FAIRBANKS — From his attic studio on the third floor of Fairbanks’ CoOp Plaza, Tanner Jackson Rhines makes contemporary art with his trusty G2 Pilot pen. On any given day, his work could be sold at a local

First Friday event or at a studio in New York or Europe. Rhines, 23, grew up in Fairbanks. In an interview, he discussed his journey from West Valley high school student to internationally exhibited artist. Rhines is an Alaska artist, but is by no means an Alaskana artist. He takes inspiration

from modern artists such as abstract expressionists Mark Rothko and Jeff Koons, the artist famous for his stainless steel balloon animals. Cartoons such as Pokemon and Mario also influence Rhines, along with dozens of his own characters, such as a bombthrowing economics professor superhero, and Inky, his

Southeast Alaska experiences 1st recorded extreme drought FAIRBANKS (AP) — The wettest region in Alaska is experiencing the first extreme drought recorded by the U.S. Drought Monitor, officials said. Scientists say the southernmost portion of Southeast Alaska has been in a drought for the last two years, The Anchorage Daily News reported Sunday. The drought was up-

graded last week to an extreme, or D3, drought, according to climatologists at the Fairbanks-based Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy. The designation is the second-highest category measured by the U.S. Drought Monitor — a national map updated weekly — and the first time that mark has been recorded in Alaska, officials said.

The extreme drought area includes Ketchikan, Prince of Wales Island, Wrangell, and Metlakatla, officials said. Areas experiencing lesser “severe” and “moderate” droughts have also expanded. Droughts are different in the rainforest climate of Southeast Alaska than in other global locations, but See 1ST, page A3

take on a Sumarian god of creativity and fertility. Many of Rhines’ drawings are tiny cartoon details contained in a simple silhouette of an image such as a skull or a Pokemon character. He calls this approach “condention,” a word he made up when he was in high school. It’s based on the

word “compression,” and Rhines defines it as a “psychological labyrinth of characters and life energies.” Rhines took out one of his condention drawings to demonstrate as he explained the idea. Each detail has a storyline in Rhines’ mind. “I know every line that I See ART, page A2

Delta Junction wildfire grows in high winds FAIRBANKS (AP)— A wildfire that has been burning in Alaska since April grew in high winds, and firefighters were working to protect homes, officials said. The Oregon Lakes Fire in the Delta Junction area expanded along its western perimeter Saturday night, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported Sunday. The blaze spanned 27

square miles as of Sunday, officials said. People are believed to have caused the fire April 30, but it’s still under investigation. Fire crews are trying to protect cabins and homes on private land in surrounding communities including Whitestone, South Bank and RichardsonClearwater, officials said. Firefighters have See WIND, page A3

have, almost,” he said. “You can point to anything and I’ll tell you what it’s about.” The walls of Rhines’ studio hold a handful of his pen and ink drawings, as well as an abstract acrylic Rhines said he painted just to be different. The piece is titled “Just to be Different.” “For someone else, it’s probably not different, but for me it is,” he said. He’d like to do some more work in other media, including 3D printed sculptures, wood panels and mandalas, a style of Indian religious art. Sometimes it can be hard to expand because of his success with pen and ink. “I’ve always wanted to do wood panels. I’ve had people try to block me from doing wood panels. They’re like, ‘You need to stick to your black and white style,’” he said. Rhines spent most of his career working as an artist. He’s also a part-time baggage handler for Delta Airlines and has worked as a welder and laborer. Last year he and his cousin launched Modern-Volume, an online store that sells shirts and bags with Rhines’ designs. Rhines attributes much of his career success to the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, which he entered when he was at West Valley. It’s a contest that launched the careers of many famous artists and writers, including Andy Warhol and Stephen King, Rhines said. “Scholastic was the doorway into everything,” Rhines said. “I really do encourage anybody who is in high school and interested in art to enter.” Today Rhines is featured in the famous artist section of the contemporary art online marketplace Artsper. He said he’s never felt overwhelmed working in the international contemporary art world. “I feel right at home. I’m an artist. I couldn’t imagine my life being any other way,” he said.

In this May 17, 2019 photo, artist Tanner Rhines poses in his studio in Fairbanks. (Eric Engman/Fairbanks Daily News-Miner via AP)

Part of the reason he wanted to work for Delta is that it the job’s travel benefits will make it easier for him to get to art shows around the world. But Rhines has no plans to move to a larger art market. He likes it here,

he said. In addition to all his international work, he’s trying to do more locally, with shows this year at Good Cannabis, Hoarfrost Distilling and Bobby’s Downtown. His work will also appear on a new downtown mural

this year. In 2017, Rhines worked with fellow Fairbanks artist Amanda Wells on a mural at Fourth Avenue and Lacey Street. This year he’s planning to add a second mural in the patio of Lavelle’s Taphouse.

Mariya Dawn Miller April 21, 1988 - May 6, 2019

Mariya Dawn Miller, 31 of Soldotna passed suddenly on May 6, 2019 at Central Peninsula Hospital. Mariya was born on April 21, 1988 in Soldotna to Cindy and Fritz Miller. A life-long resident of Soldotna, she was very active in her community gaining a bachelors in social work from KPC/UAA and volunteering for the Crisis Text Line which is a hotline for adolescence in need. There are no words to describe what this community has lost or how missed she will be by her family and everyone who knew her. She is survived by her parents Cindy and Fritz, brothers Brandon and Brice, sisters Michelle and Kiara, and grandparents Betty and Frank Kraxberger. Not only did she have the kindest of hearts to family, friends, and perfect strangers, she was an avid animal lover and was rarely seen without her beloved yorkie mix, Dingo and her Saint Bernard, Murtaugh “Murray”. In keeping with her spirit of loving animals and taking a page out the play book of her favorite TV personality, Bob Barker, we ask that in honor of Mariya and in lieu of flowers you donate to Peninsula Spay and Neuter Fund at Wells Fargo Bank or mail to Peninsula Spay and Neuter Fund, P.O.

precipitation is still drastically less than normal, said climatologist Rick Thoman. Ketchikan has averaged about 100 inches annually since 2017 and Metlakatla has had between 80 and 90 inches. “In the mass amount of the world that would be an immense amount of rain,” Thoman said.

roes every day in places like Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, in training accidents and missions around the world,” Harrison said. “As Americans, we should always remember that freedom is not free. It’s only possible because our fallen heroes have paid its high price.” During his remarks, Sullivan said Alaska is home to more veterans per capita than any other state. According to U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, nearly 10% of Alaska’s total population are veterans. “I try to do as many of the Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies as possible,” Sullivan told the Clarion. “It’s really remarkable we have this big military population. When you look at our veterans and our military and families, it’s a huge part of the state and the Kenai Peninsula is a big proportion of that.” Sullivan said he wanted to visit the peninsula to pay his respects to the veterans in the community. In his speech to residents, he said America’s service members have “done more to liber-

tures to connect to pumps and water supplies, officials said. Smoke mixed with sand blown up from the Delta River has formed clouds visible from the Delta Junction area 95 miles southeast of Fairbanks, the Bureau of Land Management’s Alaska Fire Service said. Transportation and observation flights were temporarily cancelled because of high winds and poor visibility. Temporary flight restrictions were in effect to avoid interfering with efforts to fight the fire from the air and transport crews. Storm paths have been a significant drought factor within the past two years by moving west toward the Bering Sea or south toward the Pacific Northwest, taking rain and snow with them, Thoman said. While this is the first extreme drought classification in Alaska, it is likely not the first in the region. Similar deficits were measured in the early 1990s, before the U.S. Drought Monitor was established, he said. ate people around the world from oppression and tyranny than any other force in human history.” “That’s a fact that we don’t always think about,” Sullivan said. Many of the afternoon’s speeches noted that since the Revolutionary War, more than a million Americans have lost their lives in the fight for freedom. “We honor them all, not just the ones with the highest medals,” Harrison said in his speech. “They all died so we could cherish the things that we love: freedom, country and family.” “That’s a lot of life,” Fite said. “That’s a lot of pain. We owe them a lot.” Sullivan also urged veterans on the Kenai Peninsula who are struggling with local Veterans Affairs services to contact his office for help. “If there is a veteran on the Kenai who is having issues with the VA — don’t fight that battle alone,” Sullivan said. “I’ve got a great team. Let us help veterans or families with some of the challenges people have with the bureaucracy in getting the benefits they’ve earned and the health care they’ve earned.”

said he put in a lot of work this winter and said he is a better rider than last year. “This is a great fitness test,” he said. “Just put your head down and go.” Martin Renner was second at 50:37 and Jon Iannaccone was third at 53:08. Showalter won the women’s race at 1:02:09, but thoughts of glory are not what brought her out. “I love to ride bikes and be out with this community,” Showalter said. “I’m just trying to keep up with my son, Landen.” Like the rest of the women’s field, Landen couldn’t quite keep up with Jen, finishing 31 seconds behind his mother. Tammy Lafrancois was runner-up at 1:03:38, while Jennifer Tabor was third at 1:04:34. Youngren picked up the overall win in 1:08:33, while Steffe crossed at 1:10:10. Anchor Musgrave was runner-up for the men at 1:13:29, while Kaden Matson was next at 1:13:51. For the women, Alexandria Bergholtz was second at 1:22:26, while Becca Hitchcock was third at 1:27:20. Youngren said the field started fast, at 6:40 per mile, and she knew that would be a tough pace to maintain. The leaders took turns breaking through the wind for the first 3 miles, then the field gradually strung out until 7 miles in, when Youngren took control. She said she looks forward to this race all winter. “It’s right at the start of the summer, so it’s one of the things you can train for all winter,” Youngren said. “You never know what you’re going to get, whether

it’ll be fast or slow.” For Steffe, this was just the start of a summer of novel experiences that he hopes will include seeing Denali and sea kayaking in Homer. He has already hiked the Harding Icefield trail in Seward. “I’ve never run on the sand before,” he said. “That headwind was tough. You’re already salty from sweating, then you’re getting more salt from the sea breeze.” In the men’s 3-mile race, Jack Laker, who will be in eighth grade at Kenai Middle School, won what was essentially a backyard competition against his brother, Chase Laker, who will be in sixth grade at KMS. Jack won the race at 23:12, while Chase was next at 24:04. The Lakers live on the beach in Kasilof, so this was a natural holiday activity for them. “It’s a fun, family event, and it’s right on our beach,” said Julie Laker, the mother of the boys who finished the 3-miler in 34:19. “It’s also great to support Cook Inletkeeper.” Leif Laker, who will be in the third grade at Kaleidoscope School, finished at 34:14. His father, Mark Laker, finished the bike race in 1:29:01. The women’s victory went to Caitlyn Marang at 25:26, while Emily Knight was second at 26:44 and Nettie Kellar was third at 27:28. The Mouth to Mouth Wild Run and Ride was the perfect place for Marang. She loves being a part of her father’s team. Brian Marang finished fifth in the bike race at 55:43. Caitlyn also feels strongly about protecting water and the benefits of education. She is studying elementary education at Kenai

Peninsula College, a place that she said has been very influential in her life. But winning the race? Marang wasn’t quite sure she could do that. “I don’t run much, but I do a lot of cardio,” she said. “I wanted to surprise myself. I finished second last year and wanted to beat my time. “When I won, I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, I didn’t know I could do that.” The race was done in partnership with the Kenaitze Indian Tribe, Kenai Watershed Forum, Tsalteshi Trails Association, Kenai Peninsula Trout Unlimited, Biking in Kenai and Soldotna, and the Alaska Wildlife Alliance. Eli Darien, a Kenaitze elder, shared with the racers at the awards ceremony a little about the educational fishery, as well as what the beach means to him. Cook Inletkeeper’s mission is to protect clean water and salmon habitat, and also building a community to make sure people have a say in the resource development that happens in their community.

What others say

Zelensky may deliver change in Ukraine Ever since Ukrainian television comedian Volodymyr Zelensky routed the country’s established politicians in a presidential election last month, Western observers have puzzled over what to make of him. Is he truly the anti-corruption crusader he played on his television program, or is he a captive of the allegedly corrupt oligarch whose television network broadcast the show? Would he continue Ukraine’s pro-Western foreign policy and stand up to Russia’s Vladimir Putin, or would he allow himself to be manipulated by Moscow? Not all the answers are in, but Mr. Zelensky’s inaugural speech on Monday offered some encouraging signs. Mr. Zelensky called on the parliament to quickly remove its members’ immunity from prosecution and pass a law allowing the prosecution of officials for illegal enrichment. He announced he was dissolving parliament early to allow for new elections, something that could allow him to leverage his popularity — he won 73 percent of the vote in a presidential runoff — into a pro-reform legislative majority. And he said that while his top priority would be ending Ukraine’s war with Russian-backed forces in two eastern provinces, he would not give up Ukraine’s territory — including Crimea, which Mr. Putin has declared part of Russia. Mr. Zelensky could quickly become mired in legal disputes with his parliamentary opponents, who are contesting his authority to force an early election. Mr. Putin, for his part, is playing tough — he greeted Mr. Zelensky’s victory by offering Russian passports to residents of eastern Ukraine, and his spokesman said Monday he would neither congratulate nor soon meet with the new president. It nevertheless appears that Ukraine’s new leader is trying to deliver desperately needed change in a country that, despite abundant resources, has been dragged down by endemic corruption as well as the conflict with Russia. Mr. Zelensky’s predecessor, Petro Poroshenko, was himself an oligarch who staunchly resisted Mr. Putin’s attempts to dismember the country but blocked critical reforms to the judiciary and other institutions. A crucial test for the new president will be his handling of oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky, who partnered with Mr. Zelensky on his television show and left the country after he was accused by Mr. Poroshenko’s government of looting a bank. Western observers were alarmed when Mr. Kolomoisky suddenly returned to the country last week; if Mr. Zelensky installs the magnate’s allies in his administration or reverses actions taken against him, the new administration could be instantly discredited. In the meantime, Mr. Zelensky took a sensible step by calling on the parliament to approve the dismissal of the chief state prosecutor, Yuriy Lutsenko, who has appeared open to an attempt by President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, to enlist his interference in the 2020 U.S. election. Mr. Giuliani reportedly pressed Mr. Lutsenko to investigate allegations of wrongdoing by Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter, though there is no evidence of wrongdoing by either of them. Mr. Zelensky may not have much political experience, but he appears to have enough common sense to resist allowing his new administration to be dragged into U.S. domestic politics. Mr. Giuliani and his boss ought to stop trying to make ill use of Ukraine’s government and instead help its new president succeed. — The Washington Post, May 20

A laska V oices K ristin C ox May 31 is World No Tobacco Day. As the adage goes, think globally, act locally. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 40% of children ages 3-11 — two times the rate of adults — are exposed to second-hand smoke. Three hundred thousand U.S. children are hospitalized every year with respiratory infections from breathing second-hand smoke, and 15,000 of those children will be under 2 years old. Four hundred infants die suddenly every year with evidence of nicotine by-products in their bodies. Children are more heavily exposed to second-hand smoke because they often spend more hours at home than adults. They breathe twice as much, and inhale more air per pound than adults. They breathe air closer to the ground where contaminants linger and they touch more surfaces where third-hand smoke residue persists. If you are parent in Juneau, you might not smoke, but if you don’t have enough money to buy a singlefamily home, you won’t be able to protect your children from secondhand smoke. Condominiums and apartments share an estimated 60% of the air between the units. Air leaks through air vents, pipe runs, electrical outlets and comes in from the outside. Secondhand smoke is harming you even if

you are a senior who can’t smell it, or a child who can’t tell someone; even if it doesn’t bother you. Of the remaining smokers, 72% of them are lower income. Alaska Housing Finance Corporation and Tlingit and Haida Regional Housing Authority acknowledged this and adopted smoke-free housing policies in 2013 to protect children and families. But if you live in, or buy, privately owned condominiums or apartments, you might not have a policy to protect your family. Third-hand smoke is the residue left behind on surfaces after a person has smoked. That residue continues to react with the environment and becomes more toxic with time. Research has found that homes of former smokers remained polluted with third-hand smoke for months after the smoking had stopped. Nicotine was also measured in nonsmokers who moved into homes that had been smoked in, even though the homes had been cleaned and left empty for several months before the new residents arrived. People almost always say that they smoke because of stress, and people in poverty are stressed. But research shows that smoking, which is an addiction, causes stress and poverty. People with the least resources, including children, are bearing the most burden from continued tobacco use. Low-income communities have historically been targeted with predatory tobacco industry practices. Lowincome neighborhoods are home to more tobacco retailers, exposed to more tobacco advertising and the people living there are consequently more likely to start smoking and be discouraged from quitting. The closer

you live to a tobacco retailer, the more likely you are to smoke. The tobacco industry also discounts its product in low-income neighborhoods which increases sales by 30%. Over 50,000 studies have concluded that inhaling second-hand smoke is the largest preventable cause of death and disability in the United States. Even the briefest exposure to secondhand smoke has an immediate effect on vital organs, according to the CDC. Most condo associations have rules against nuisances like loud music, pets and clutter; meanwhile protecting people from a proven present danger is being neglected in favor of the “rights” of property owners to smoke. Smokers are not a protected class; there is no “right” to smoke.

News and Politics Impeach Trump? Most 2020 Democrats tiptoe around question WASHINGTON — Democratic leaders in Congress have argued that impeaching President Donald Trump is a political mistake as the 2020 election nears. Most of the candidates running to succeed him seem to agree, for now. Fewer than one-third of the 23 Democrats vying for the nomination are issuing calls to start the impeachment process, citing evidence in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report they believe shows Trump obstructed justice. Most others, including leading contenders Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, have found a way to hedge or search for middle ground, supporting investigations that could lead to impeachment or saying Trump’s conduct warrants impeachment but stopping short of any call for such a proceeding. The candidates’ reluctance, even as more congressional Democrats start pushing their leaders in the direction, underscores the risky politics of investigating the president for “high crimes and misdemeanours.” Impeachment matters deeply to the party’s base but remains unpopular with most Americans. White House hopefuls may win praise from liberal activists by pressing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for an impeachment inquiry, but those who fall short of insisting are unlikely to take heat from early-state primary voters more focused on other issues. “People talk about it and people have opinions about it, but health care is much more salient to them,” Sue Dvorsky, a former head of the Iowa Democratic Party, said in an interview. “I just

don’t see Democratic activists here all worked up about impeachment. They trust Pelosi.” The 2020 candidates are facing pressure from the left to take a harder line on impeachment as the Trump administration’s stiff-arming of subpoenas leaves House Democrats fuming and a growing number of lawmakers urge Pelosi to initiate an inquiry constitutionally required to remove Trump from office. Leah Greenberg, co-founder of the progressive group Indivisible, described the absence of louder calls for impeachment from the candidates as “a real gap in leadership.” “What we’re seeing is, some Democrats would prefer to keep the topic focused on places where they’re most comfortable and some Democrats would prefer to play pundits on this,” Greenberg said in an interview. Tom Steyer, a California billionaire, has run television ads and held town halls across the country as part of a campaign calling for Trump’s impeachment. He suggested that candidates who haven’t yet endorsed impeachment “have a political problem telling the truth about this.” Steyer said that if the public saw televised, unfiltered hearings that showed “exactly how bad this president is and exactly who he’s surrounded himself with and how corrupt he really is,” Democrats and Republicans alike would “reject that kind of behaviour.” Steyer declined to enter the 2020 presidential race himself. The administration’s blockade of

congressional investigations and Mueller’s report detailing possible obstruction action have yet to push any new Democratic candidates off the fence. Former Vice-President Joe Biden, the current front-runner, said last month there is “no alternative” but impeachment if the administration keeps stonewalling congressional investigations. But Biden has notably stopped short of urging Pelosi to move forward. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who’s running second in most polls, told CNN this past week “it may be time to at least begin the process” which could result in impeachment. But he warned in the same interview that Trump could try to exact political gains from any impeachment effort. Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, said in an interview Sunday that it makes sense for House Democrats to start taking the first steps toward impeachment but added, “I’m also mindful that people like me don’t have a lot of business giving advice to Nancy Pelosi.” New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker told The Associated Press on Friday that Trump’s refusal to co-operate with Congress amounts to “undermining the Article I branch of the government’s ability to conduct its constitutional mandates.” But he gave Pelosi wide leeway. He acknowledged that “she’s feeling the frustration from Democrats in the House” and said that “should getting co-operation from the administration not work, I know she’ll increasingly be considering her options.”

Flood buyout costs rise as storms intensify, seas surge By DAVID A. LIEB Associated Press

MOSBY, Mo. — The residents of this small riverside town have become accustomed to watching floods swamp their streets, transform their homes into islands and ruin their floors and furniture. Elmer Sullivan has replaced his couch, bed and television. He’s torn up water-buckled floorboards. And he put a picket fence against the front of his house to cover up a gap left when waters washed out part of the stone foundation. “I just don’t want to mess with it anymore. I’m 83 years old and I’m tired of it, and I just want to get out of it,” Sullivan said. Finally fed up, Sullivan and nearly half of the homeowners in Mosby signed up in 2016 for a program in which the government would buy and then demolish their properties rather than paying to rebuild them over and over. They’re still waiting for offers, joining thousands of others across the country in a slow-moving line to escape from flood-prone homes. Patience is wearing thin in Mosby, a town of fewer than 200 people with a core of lifelong residents and some younger newcomers drawn by the cheap prices of its modest wood-frame homes. Residents watched nervously this past week as high waters again threatened the town. “It really is frustrating, because here we are, we’re coming through a wet season. There’s a chance that we could possibly flood, and we’re still waiting,” said Jason Stooksbury, an alderman who oversees the town’s efforts to curb flooding. “It’s not a good

situation, but what are you going to do — it’s the government process.” Over the past three decades, federal and local governments have poured more than $5 billion into buying tens of thousands of vulnerable properties across the country, according to an Associated Press analysis of data from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The AP analysis shows those buyouts have been getting more expensive, with many of the costliest coming in the last decade after strong storms pounded heavily populated coastal states such as Texas, New York and New Jersey. This year’s record flooding in the Midwest could add even more buyouts to the queue. The purchases are happening as the climate changes.

Along rivers and sea coasts, some homes that were once considered at little risk are now endangered due to water that is climbing higher and surging farther inland than historic patterns predicted. Regardless of the risks, the buyouts are voluntary. Homeowners can renew taxpayersubsidized flood insurance policies indefinitely. With more extreme weather events, flooding “is going to become more and more of an issue, and there will be more and more properties that are at risk of total loss or near total loss,” said Democratic U.S. Rep. Peter DeFazio of Oregon, chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, which has jurisdiction over FEMA. “Then the question is: Are we just going to keep selling them insurance and building in the same place?” DeFazio wants to expand and revamp a buyout process

that he describes as inefficient and irrational. He’s backing a proposed pilot project that would give homeowners a break on their flood insurance premiums, as long as they agree in advance to a buyout that would turn their property into green space if their homes are substantially damaged by a flood. Buyout programs rely on federal money distributed through the states, but they generally are carried out by cities and counties that end up owning the properties. Most buyouts are initiated after disasters, but Congress has become more proactive. Appropriations for FEMA’s Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program — which funds buyouts and other precautions, such as elevating homes before disasters strike — have risen from $25 million in 2015 to $250 million this year.

Heat wave before summer grips Deep South By JEFFREY COLLINS Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A scorching heatwave weeks before the start of summer is gripping the Deep South with several cities reporting the hottest temperatures ever recorded in May. High temperatures were at least 100 degrees Fahrenheit Sunday in Charleston and Columbia, South Carolina; Fayetteville and Wilmington in North Carolina; Savannah and Macon in Georgia; and Gainesville, Florida. It was the third day of temperatures in that range this week, and Monday was expected to be just about as hot.

Savannah's high of 102 degrees was a record for all of May and hotter than any day so far this year in Phoenix, as the same weather pattern bringing the unprecedented heat to the Southeast also has the desert southwest in the U.S. unusually cool. The high in Death Valley, California, on Sunday was 82 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. While unusual for late May, this kind of heat isn't unheard of for the Deep South in the middle of summer. Officials did not report a large number of people sickened by the hot weather, even over the long Memorial Day weekend.

The above normal temperatures will continue through the middle of the week, said National Weather Service meteorologist Michael Emlaw in Charleston. But the record hot May doesn't mean the whole summer will simmer in the Southeast U.S. A big factor will be whether the area can shake loose from the unusually dry weather pattern too, Emlaw said. "The lack of rain is making it hotter. With the ground dry, all of the sun's energy is put into heating the atmosphere instead of some of it being used to evaporate moisture in the ground," Em-

law said. A few isolated portions of the region are already looking at water shortages. Pender County in southeast North Carolina declared a water shortage emergency. But most of the region is not in a drought yet. That dry weather has made this May heat wave a little more tolerable than most dead-of-summer heat waves in the Southeast. The humidity has been a bit lower, preventing the oppressive, heat blanket that the Deep South often feels in summer. "It doesn't feel bad as 100 might feel in July," Emlaw said. "If that's a plus, I guess we'll take it."

Texas lawmakers approve safe gun storage program By JIM VERTUNO Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — Lawmakers in gun-loving Texas have quietly gone around the National Rifle Association by slipping language into a massive spending bill that would fund a $1 million public safety campaign on gun storage. The last-minute move late Sunday sets up a political test rarely seen in Texas for Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, who must decide whether to veto the spending or to ignore NRA opposition and approve the program. An Abbott spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and the Texas Legislature adjourned Monday until 2021. The campaign for safe home gun storage is a small item in the two-year, $250 billion state budget, and it was fiercely opposed by the NRA and gun-rights activists. The measure failed to get a vote and appeared all but dead weeks ago. Then budget negotiators — the majority of whom are Republicans — added the funding into a budget bill.

Congressman says he’s taken photo with dead enemy SAN DIEGO (AP) — U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter of California acknowledged taking a photo with a dead combatant during his time as a Marine as he defended a Navy SEAL charged with multiple war crimes, including killing a teenage fighter. The Republican congressman, who was reelected last November as he faces corruption charges, made the comments during a town hall Saturday in his San Diego-area district, the Union-Tribune reported. Hunter has advocated for a pardon for Edward Gallagher, who’s charged with stabbing to death a teenage Islamic State fighter under his care in Iraq in 2017 and then holding his reenlistment ceremony with the body. Prosecutors said the Navy SEAL chief texted a photograph of himself next to the dead fighter and wrote he “got him with my hunting knife.” He’s also accused of shooting two civilians in Iraq and opening fire on crowds. Hunter said he also posed for a photo next to a dead combatant but said he did not text it or post it to social media. The congressman said “a lot of us have done the exact same thing,” referring to fellow service members in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hunter called the mili-

tary justice system “corrupt,” saying it is run by lawyers and bureaucrats intent on pursuing “war fighters.” His offices didn’t return calls and emails seeking comment Monday. Gallagher’s lawyers have said he did not murder anyone and that disgruntled SEALs made the accusations because they wanted to get rid of a demanding platoon leader. Dozens of Republican congressmen say Gallagher an innocent war hero being unfairly prosecuted. President Donald Trump got him moved from the brig to better confinement in a military hospital with access to his lawyers and family. Trump says he is considering pardons for several American military members accused of war crimes. Gallagher’s court-martial is set to begin this week at Naval Base San Diego. Gallagher has pleaded not guilty to all the charges. At the town hall, Hunter declined to comment on his own pending court case. Hunter and his wife, Margaret, were indicted in 2017 on federal charges of illegally converting more than $250,000 in campaign contributions for personal living expenses. Both have pleaded not guilty and have their next court hearing scheduled for July 29. Trial is set for later this year.

Around the Nation Group vowing to build border wall puts up New Mexico segment SUNLAND PARK, N.M. — A leader with the group that’s been raising funds to build a southern border wall on its own says they erected less than a mile of wall on private land in New Mexico over Memorial Day weekend. Dustin Stockton, co-founder of the nonprofit WeBuildtheWall Inc., told The Associated Press Monday that they spent about 10 days moving dirt before starting construction Friday. He says the wall segment in Sunland Park is “mostly up” and should be completed by the end of the week. Stockton, whose group has raised about $22 million, says they don’t have a final tally yet on the cost, but he expects it’ll be somewhere between $6 million and $10 million. He says the site’s steep incline added to the cost. The government’s cost for the new walls its building is about $22 million a mile.

3 ATV riders killed in Tennessee, 1 injured JACKSBORO, Tenn. — Tennessee authorities say three ATV riders from North Carolina were killed when their vehicle fell down an embankment through thick brush. Media outlets report a fourth person was found injured by emergency responders. The Campbell County Sheriff’s office said Monday the injured minor was airlifted to a Knoxville hospital. His condition was not immediately known. The crash occurred Sunday in the area of a privately owned, off-road adventure park that offers riding trails. Authorities have identified the dead as 47-yearold Ronnie Akins, 19-year-old Dillon Akins and 19-year-old Jonathan Laws, all of Weaaverville, North Carolina. The sheriff’s office says the ATV left a trail and fell more than 100 feet. Rescuers had to cut through thick brush and trees to reach the crash site.

Democrats advance bill to expand Illinois abortion rights

The legislation was approved Sunday night by the GOPcontrolled Legislature. “I have full confidence that the governor will look at it hard and will realize it’s all about saving lives. I hope there is no one discouraging him,” Gyl Switzer, executive director of Texas Gun

Sense, said Monday. Abbott has said he would support promoting gun safety. But he has also bowed to pressure from the NRA and gun rights advocates on issues such as stiffer penalties for negligent gun storage, as well as “red flag” laws to keep guns away from people

deemed dangerous to themselves or others. Creating a new safe storage campaign in Texas would be a rare defeat for the NRA, which has long flexed considerable muscle in a state with more than 1.3 million handgun license holders.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — House Democrats in Illinois have advanced a measure to replace the state’s abortion law with less restrictive language that gives people “a fundamental right” to make decisions about their reproductive health. The State Journal-Register reports a House committee approved the legislation late Sunday on a party-line vote, sending it to the House floor. All committee Republicans voted no. Among other provisions, the bill requires private health insurance companies that cover pregnancy-related benefits to cover abortion. Supporters say the measure is necessary to counter other states’ action to restrict abortion procedures and the appointment of U.S. Supreme Court justices who oppose abortion. Republicans criticized Democrats, who control the Legislature and the governor’s office, for holding the hearing on the Sunday night of a holiday weekend and posting notice just one hour before the hearing. — Associated Press

Europe wakes up to climate concerns after green wave in vote By FRANK JORDANS Associated Press

BERLIN — Green parties in Germany, France, Britain and elsewhere celebrated big gains in elections for the 751seat European Parliament amid growing voter concerns over climate change, expressed in large-scale student protests over recent months. Provisional results Monday showed the left-leaning Greens’ bloc coming fourth in the election with 69 seats, an increase of 17 compared with 2014. If confirmed, the results could put the Greens in a position to tip the scales when it comes to choosing the next head of the European Commission. The rise of the Greens, with their distinctly pro-European Union stance, marks a counterpoint to that of the far-right, anti-migrant parties that have been growing in popularity across Europe in recent years. “Whoever wants legitimacy from us and the legitimacy of the many who went onto the streets will need to deliver now,” said Sven Giegold, a leading candidate for the German Green party that scooped up more than 20% of the vote nationwide, an increase of almost 10% compared with 2014. The drift from the traditional heavyweight parties to the Greens in Germany was particularly pronounced in large cities such as Berlin, Munich and Hamburg, and among young voters, where

the party beat its bigger rivals among all voters under 60, according to the Infratest dimap research institute. Armin Laschet, the governor of Germany’s most populous state, North RhineWestphalia, and a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s center-right Union bloc, called the outcome “a wakeup call for politics.” In neighboring France, 25% of voters aged 18-25 voted for the Greens, compared with 15% for the farright National Rally and 12% for President Emmanuel Macron’s Republic on the Move, according to the Ifop polling organization. Overall, the French green party EELV

received almost 13.5% of the vote, coming third. Yannick Jadot, lead candidate of EELV, welcomed the “great green wave” in Europe. “The French sent us a very clear message: they want environment to be at the heart of our lives, at the heart of the political game and that message has been spread across Europe,” he said. “The very good score of the greens in Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium and France sends a signal that the center of gravity of the European politics is shifting, that in addition to the populists and the pro-business (parties), there are the Greens,” Jadot said.

Green parties also polled strongly in Austria, Sweden, Ireland, Denmark and the Netherlands. In Britain, the Greens — a largely insignificant force nationally — took 11 seats in the European Parliament vote. “This was kind of a vote for all europhile and pro-integration positions the Greens have championed,” Martin Florack, a political scientist at the University of Duisburg-Essen, told German public broadcaster ARD. The enmity was reflected in comments by Alexander Gauland, the co-leader of the far-right Alternative for Germany party, who declared the Greens “our main enemy” on Monday.

Syrian air raids hit crowded residential areas By SARAH EL DEEB Associated Press

BEIRUT — Syrian government air raids killed at least nine people on Monday, after hitting a crowded residential area in the last rebel stronghold in the northwest province of Idlib, rescuers and activists said. The first responders known as White Helmets said 11 people were killed, including six children and four women. Rescue workers were still searching for survivors under the rubble after the airstrikes hit in the town of Ariha. One rescuer said after two hours of searching two children were pulled out alive. Videos from the scene by the White Helmets showed a narrow alley blocked by the debris from a pulverized building. Survivors covered in white dust were among those who lifted a wounded man on a gurney and a young girl into the ambulance. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported 17 were killed on Monday, including nine in Ariha and six others in another village, Hazareen. The scene in Ariha was reminiscent of the violence that has hit many rebel-held areas as the government pursued similar military tactics to regain control of territory it had lost to armed opposition. In the last three years, Syrian troops, with support from Russia and Iran, have regained control of most of the country, displacing hundreds of thousands, mostly to Hama

JERUSALEM — Israel’s parliament on Monday passed a preliminary motion to dissolve itself.

BAGHDAD — The French former members of the Islamic State group were brought into the courtroom in Baghdad one after the other on Monday and made to sit inside a wooden cage in the middle. As they spoke in French, a government official typed up the translation into Arabic, which immediately appeared on a large screen behind the judge that the court could read. Mustafa Mohammed Ibrahim became the fourth French citizen to be sentenced to death by a Baghdad court for joining the Islamic State group that once controlled large parts of Syria and Iraq before its defeat. His trial comes as questions swirl about the legal treatment of thousands of foreign nationals formerly with the extremist group. Wearing a yellow uniform and plastic flip flops, Ibrahim, 37, told the judge, “I don’t understand the charges.” Judge Ahmad Mohammed responded: “Your charge is a terrorist crime.” The man who came from France to Syria to join the group in 2015, said he was the victim of its propaganda. The self-proclaimed caliphate had promised him a good life including money, work and a house. Jobless back in Europe, Ibrahim came to Syria via Turkey where he took religious lessons and weapons training. He then married a Moroccan widow with four children who later gave birth to his child. When the judge asked Ibrahim if he was guilty, his response was: “I am not guilty of carrying out any crimes. I am guilty because they brainwashed me. I am the victim of the Islamic State. I am not guilty.” “I am ready to help France in the fight against terrorism,” Ibrahim added. France said the Iraqi court has jurisdiction to rule in the cases, though a spokeswoman reiterated the French government’s opposition to the death penalty.

The five Frenchmen on trial Monday — two were kept outside the courtroom — were among the 12 French IS fighters whom the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces handed over to Iraq in January. The Kurdish-led group spearheaded the fight against IS in Syria and has handed over to Iraq hundreds of suspected IS members in recent months. IS “terrorists must answer for their crimes in court,” said France’s foreign ministry spokeswoman, Agnès von der Mühll. As Monday’s proceedings opened, the first to appear was Ibrahim, who is from the Mediterranean city of Nice and of Tunisian origin. “I ask for forgiveness from the people of Iraq and Syria and the victims,” Ibrahim said before the judge who ordered him to remove his top in order to see if there were any signs of torture on his body. None were visible. “No matter what the sentence will be against me I want to go back to my country,” said Ibrahim. He added that he used to work as a driver back in France before joining IS. The judge sentenced Ibrahim to death. Asked by The Associated Press later why the sentencing happened so quickly, Mohammed said the “case was complete and ready for a verdict.” He added that regarding executions, Iraqi law sentences any member of the group to death whether the person “participates in fighting or not.” The second man brought into the courtroom was identified as Fadil Hamad Abdallah, 33, of Moroccan origin. Abdallah said he was subjected to torture while in detention. The judge referred him to a medical committee for investigation and postponed his next session until Sunday. The judge postponed the sentencing of the three other Frenchmen until next Monday. Three French IS fighters had already been sentenced to death on Sunday. Those convicted can appeal their sentences within a month.

and Idlib, where rebels are making their last stand. But this rebel stronghold is home to nearly 3 million people, who have nowhere to run to escape the government offensive. Ghayath, a resident of Ariha, said the bombs fell on two buildings only meters away from a main market which was packed with shoppers at the time of the strike. He had passed through the narrow street on his way home minutes before the strike. He returned more than half an hour later to inspect what happened as rescuers looked for survivors. It was "too painful" to watch, so he left, he said.

"We can hear the bomb as it heads toward the ground, and it is terrifying," Ghayath said. He spoke on condition only his first name is used, fearing he would be traced by government forces and his house targeted. A cease-fire in place since September in the province of Idlib, negotiated by Russia and Turkey, has all but collapsed. U.N. agencies say more than 200,000 are displaced within the stronghold, moving from the southern tip up north and crowding already packed camps and towns. Most of those displaced are living outside of camps, the U.N said, while some have

sought safety near the Turkish border where they hope no airstrikes would pursue them there. Some 20 health facilities, three displaced people's camp and one refugee camp were hit in the violence, the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reported on Friday. Since the violence picked up on April 30, the Observatory said at least 215 civilians, including 47 children were killed in the rebel stronghold. In adjacent government areas, 21 civilians were killed by rebel fire, according to the Observatory which monitors the war.

Israel faces possible 2nd election amid crisis By ARON HELLER Associated Press

— sending the political system into disarray. Netanyahu appeared to have a clear path to victory, and a fourth consecutive term, after the April 9 elections. His Likud party emerged tied as the largest party in the 120seat parliament, and with his traditional allies, he appeared to control a solid 65-55 majority. But he has struggled to form a government ahead of a looming deadline to do so. His prospective coalition has been thrown into crisis in recent days by former Defense

Minister Avigdor Lieberman, an ally and sometimes rival of Netanyahu’s. Netanyahu delivered a primetime statement on Monday calling on his potential partners to put “the good of the nation above every other interest” in order to avoid sending the country once again to “expensive, wasteful” elections. He placed the blame on Lieberman for creating the crisis, but said he was hopeful his efforts to salvage a compromise in the next 48 hours would succeed. Lieberman has insisted on

passing a new law mandating that young ultra-Orthodox men be drafted into the military, like most other Jewish males. Netanyahu’s ultraOrthodox allies demand that the draft exemptions remain in place. Without the five seats of Lieberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu party, Netanyahu cannot muster a majority. “The draft law has become a symbol and we will not capitulate on our symbols,” Lieberman defiantly said, vowing to press for new elections if his demands are not met.

4 police killed, others wounded in Mexico gang attack MEXICO CITY — Four police officers were killed and seven others wounded in gang attacks in western Mexico, according to local officials, and two bystanders were being treated for wounds. The Michoacan state prosecutors’ office said attackers opened fire on one patrol vehicle and then twice ambushed reinforcements that were sent in to help on Sunday. The office said three officers died in the attacks in the city of Zamora, and Mayor Martin Samaguey later said a fourth had died of wounds suffered in the shootings. The prosecutors’ office did not identify which gang was behind the attack in the city of Zamora. However, prosecutors said one of the attackers’ trucks had been found and local media published photos of the pickup with the letters “CJNG” on its door. Those are the Spanish initials of the violent Jalisco New Generation Cartel.

4 suspects arrested after Lyon bomb attack that wounded 13 PARIS — French police have arrested four suspects following a blast in the city of Lyon that wounded 13 people last week, authorities said Monday. TV footage showed a police operation underway Monday in a small town outside Lyon involving officers wearing ski masks. Police had launched a large manhunt after a device exploded Friday on a busy pedestrian street in France’s third-largest city. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner announced the first arrest on Twitter, a development later confirmed by Paris prosecutors, who handle all terrorism-related cases. The prosecutors’ office later said three other suspects, including a woman, were detained and formally arrested. According to French media, they included the mother and the brother of the main suspect. Lyon mayor Gerard Collomb, a former interior minister, said one of the suspects is an IT student who was arrested as he stepped off a bus. “It’s a relief for all Lyon inhabitants. I believe the case has been resolved,” Collomb told BFM TV. “If there was a network, it has been identified and will certainly be dismantled.” — Associated Press

Bruins take 1-0 lead over Blues By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — Torey Krug flew down the ice with his helmet off, like his big, bad predecessors on the Boston defense from the days of Eddie Shore and Bobby Orr. He lined up St. Louis center Robert Thomas and knocked him off his skates, delighting the crowd and sending an unmistakable message to rest of the Blues: The Bruins had woken up from their 11-day layoff, and they were ready to fight for the Stanley Cup. “I think it gave our team energy, and that’s all you’re trying to do out there,” Krug

said after Boston rallied from a two-goal deficit to beat St. Louis 4-2 in Game 1 on Monday night. “Hopefully it gave the guys a boost on the bench.” Sean Kuraly scored to break a third-period tie and assisted on another goal, and Tuukka Rask stopped 18 shots to help the Bruins complete their comeback from a two-goal deficit. Game 2 in the best-of-seven series is Wednesday night. Forty-nine years after Bobby Orr flew through the air to beat the Blues for the 1970 NHL title, the Bruins got goals from defensemen Connor Clifton and Charlie McAvoy.

Brad Marchand added an empty netter with about three minutes left, but the unofficial clincher came when Krug got up off the ice after losing his helmet in a tussle with David Perron in front of the Boston net. “You know, you don’t want to mess with that guy,” Clifton said. “Don’t make that guy mad.” Jordan Binnington made 34 saves for the Blues, who haven’t been back to the final since getting swept by Boston in 1970. But it was Boston which was struggling with a long layoff — at least early on. Idle since May 16, when they completed their sweep

of the Carolina Hurricanes, the Bruins spotted St. Louis a two-goal lead before snapping out of their slumber. Brayden Schenn made it 1-0 lead midway through the first period on a thirdchance shot. In the first minute of the second, David Pastrnak got sloppy behind the Bruins’ net and Schenn was there again, this time to pass it to Vladimir Tarasenko in the slot to make it 2-0. “I think we can be even better, and we have to be,” Perron said. Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy admitted that the long layoff since the Eastern Conference finals may have left his team rusty.

“The time off, you don’t have your edge yet to battle,” he said. “We weren’t too happy with the way the game was going. We weren’t playing our game. We weren’t playing to our standard. And I think after the second goal, that kind of woke us up.” The Bruins went on to outshoot the Blues 18-3 in the second period, finishing the game with a 38-20 edge. “I was pretty much a spectator after that,” Rask said. Just 76 seconds after Tarasenko’s goal, Clifton tipped in a pass from Kuraly to cut the deficit to one. And in the middle of the second,

on the Bruins’ fourth power play of the game, McAvoy came right up the middle and wristed it past Binnington’s glove to tie it. It was still tied five minutes into the third when Noel Acciari, on Binnington’s left, made a spin move and swept the puck across the crease to Kuraly. He steadied it with his skate and then poked it in with his stick to give the Bruins their first lead of the game. “In the second period we stopped skating, turned it over and gave them momentum,” Blues coach Craig Berube said. “I thought they were the better team after that.”

Red Sox play through shoe delay, top Twins By The Associated Press

BOSTON — Sandy León hit a three-run homer off Oliver Pérez after the Indians reliever caused an odd stoppage asking for new footwear, J.D. Martinez homered twice and the Boston Red Sox beat Cleveland 12-5 Monday. Jackie Bradley Jr. added two RBI doubles, and Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts each had two hits and scored twice for the Red Sox, who have won 18 of 26. Boston held a moment of silence and showed highlights of former player Bill Buckner, who died Monday. He was 69. Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia revealed before the game that he will take an indefinite leave in his long struggle to recover from knee trouble, putting in doubt whether he’ll play again in the majors. The Indians have lost seven of eight, and even the team’s equipment is having a rough go of it. Pérez put Fenway Park into a strange delay when he relieved during Boston’s six-run fifth inning. The 37-year-old left-hander noticed something amiss with

his spikes while warming up and signaled for a replacement pair, leaving him milling about the mound in his socks while a trainer fetched fresh Nike’s from the clubhouse. Boston socked it to him after that. Bradley hit one of his runscoring doubles to make it 6-3, and León followed with his drive into the Green Monster seats. Rafael Devers and Bogaerts had RBI doubles earlier in the inning against starter Jefry Rodríguez (1-5). ATHLETICS 8, ANGELS 5 OAKLAND, Calif. — Jurickson Profar and Josh Phegley homered off former Oakland starter Trevor Cahill and the Athletics rolled to their 10th straight win. Profar tied it with a two-run homer in the fourth against Cahill (2-5), and Phegley gave the A’s the lead for good with a leadoff shot in the fifth. Stephen Piscotty added a two-run single that inning to help Oakland to its first 10-game winning streak since 2006, with a caveat. Matt Chapman tacked on a solo shot in the seventh to give him home runs in three straight games. Robbie

Serena triumphs By ANDREW DAMPF AP Sports Writer

PARIS — “Champion,” ‘’queen,” ‘’goddess” and “mother.” Those were the words, in French, printed on a black-and-white warmup jacket that Serena Williams wore before her opening match at Roland Garros on Monday. “Those are things that mean a lot to me and reminders for me and for everyone that wants to wear it,” Williams said. “Just remind everyone that they can be champions and are queens. So I love that about it. “It is a lot to carry, but so is being Serena Williams,” said Williams, who made her return to Grand Slam competition in Paris a year ago after missing five majors because of the birth of her first child. The 23-time Grand Slam champion took off the jacket before the match and played in a matching two-piece outfit. Later in the match on a cool and windy day on Court Philippe Chatrier, Williams put on a plain black sweatshirt. Williams said the mid-match outfit change didn’t have anything to do with the temperature, though. “No, I’m just crazy, to be honest. I think everyone knows that now,” she said after overcoming a slow start for a 2-6, 6-1, 6-0 victory over 83rd-ranked Vitalia Diatchenko. “I just needed to change. I was like: ‘I’ve got to try something different. It’s not my forehand, it’s my clothes; right?’” Just like when Williams often changes her hairstyle mid-match into a bun. “Because it’s definitely not my serve. It must be my hair,” she said. “It makes no sense. So it’s all in my head.” Williams’ on-court fashion choices have drawn attention for much of her career. Last year, French Tennis Federation President Bernard Giudicelli said the black catsuit with clot-preventing compression tights that Williams wore during the 2018 French Open wouldn’t be accepted again at the tournament. Williams also addressed an announcement last week by Nike, her sponsor, that it will better respect the contracts of athletes who become pregnant. The move came in response to articles See OPEN, page A8

Grossman had two doubles and an RBI in support of Chris Bassitt (3-1), who allowed five runs and six hits in five-plus innings. The A’s then got four scoreless innings from five relievers. Blake Treinen pitched the ninth for his 11th save in 13 chances. Albert Pujols hit his 642nd career homer, and Kole Calhoun and David Fletcher each had RBI doubles for the Angels, who have lost six of eight games.

BREWERS 5, TWINS 4 MINNEAPOLIS — Orlando Arcia drove in three runs, including a go-ahead homer in the eighth inning that powered Milwaukee past Minnesota to stop the major league-leading Twins’ six-game winning streak. Josh Hader struck out Miguel Sano on three pitches with two runners on, notching his 13th save after a twoinning appearance. The Twins, who fell to 19-7 in May, outscored their opponents 53-16 during their six-game streak. After an RBI single by rookie Luis Arraez and a three-run homer by Byron Buxton , both in the second inning against starter Gio Gonzalez, the Twins stopped scoring.

Indy 500 puts on spectacular show T

he forecast called for a potential washout of the Indianapolis 500, yet the fans still packed the Snake Pit, crowded the Midway and roamed Gasoline Alley hoping rain wouldn’t ruin one of the most revered events in the world. IndyCar, ever so slowly trying to race its way back into relevancy, had too much to offer in the 103rd running of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” and a weeklong prediction of terrible Sunday weather had everyone on edge. The pre-race pageantry absolutely had to happen and both IndyCar and broadcast partner NBC were desperately anxious to show the world their much-improved product without any weather disruptions. But on a day that called for a 90 percent chance of thunderstorms, the sky over Indianapolis Motor Speedway remained clear blue and the Indy 500 went off without a hitch. It turned out to be the most perfect day for a breathtaking 500 miles full of chaos, drama and spectacular racing. IndyCar’s drivers have argued for years they have the most competitive series in the world, an argument impossible to be settled, but one put on display Sunday with a flashy showing of speed, danger, anger and a job-saving

drive by winner Simon Pagenaud. Pagenaud and Alexander Rossi traded the lead five times over a frantic final 13 laps, with Pagenaud determined to hold off the American rumored to be in line to replace him at Team Penske. Pagenaud made his final pass on the penultimate lap, then blocked Rossi for the final 2½ miles around the Brickyard. He took the checkered flag for a clean May sweep at Indy — he won the road course race three weeks ago, the pole for the Indy 500 and then the Borg-Warner trophy to earn a guarantee from team owner Roger Penske that Pagenaud is not getting fired at the end of the season. “I was never going to give up,” Pagenaud said. “That’s what saved me, saved my career at one point. That’s what always helped me, and I always believed. I’ve been saying it, but kids, if you’re looking, if you’re watching, always believe in your dreams. “And if you really believe it, believe it hard, and if you work hard enough, anything can happen.” The overnight rating in NBC’s debut of the race was up 15% compared with when ABC broadcast it for the 54th and final time. Viewership hit a high of 4.56 in the final 15 minutes of the Pagenaud and Rossi duel, and the net-

Colton Herta, who became IndyCar’s youngest winner days before his 19th birthday, didn’t even get the chance to ride around. His gearbox broke just six laps into the race. And Helio Castroneves, still trying to win his elusive fourth 500, had contact with another car on pit lane and the penalty for contact took him out of contention. All this went on without McLaren or Fernando Alonso on track. The mighty return of the brand was spoiled when McLaren failed to get Alonso into the field of 33, so their only presence Sunday was a merchandise trailer and hospitality suite. Fans jammed the McLaren booth to grab discounted T-shirts and hats, while sporting director Gil de Ferran gamely entertained more than 100 sponsors and guests who had expected to watch the two-time Formula One champion zip around the speedway in the papaya orange car. In missing the race, McLaren showed the Indy 500 is a beast of an event that can’t be taken for granted. And even with Alonso watching on TV somewhere, IndyCar proved that for at least one day of the year, it has the best product on the track.

Pedroia takes indefinite leave, putting future in doubt Red Sox star continues to have trouble finding way to return from surgery on left knee longtime star on the 60-day injured list. Pedroia said “time will give me the right answer if my knee can do this.” The gritty 2008 AL MVP had surgery on Oct. 25, 2017 and played in just three games last season. This year, he’s played in only six games, getting two singles in 20 at-bats. “You don’t know the end result and that part’s hard,” he said. “So that’s why a little reflection right now, I need to re-evaluate, go home, chill out and see how everything responds.” Indians manager Terry Francona, who was with

the Red Sox from 2004-11 and won a World Series title with Pedroia in 2007, talked with the second baseman earlier in the day. Cleveland is in Boston for a threegame series. “He came over this morning for about a half hour,” Francona said. “I think he’s in a pretty good place. I think, I don’t want to speak for him, but I think he knows he emptied his tank. He didn’t leave any stone unturned. He probably gave more than he should, and his body is feeling it now. I don’t think he has any regrets - nor should he.” Pedroia said the time

away will help him think about his future. “I’m going to go home for a little bit to be with my family, kind of get away for a little bit and then we’ll figure it out from there,” he said. Pedroia did say he’d be there when the team needs him — via video chat. “You can always FaceTime,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said, smiling, sitting to Pedroia’s right in a press conference with Dombrowski on Pedroia’s left. “I FaceTime a lot,” Pedroia said. “In our hitters’ meetings when I was away last year.”

Seager, activated off the 60day injured list last weekend, blooped a single to score Mallex Smith in the third. Smith also had an RBI single and stole home when Kyle Bird tried to pick off Mitch Haniger at first base. It was Seattle’s first steal of home since Dustin Ackley did it in 2012. Rangers starter Lance Lynn (6-4) struck out 10 and yielded three earned runs in six innings.

By KEN POWTAK Associated Press

BOSTON — Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia will take an “indefinite leave” in his long struggle to recover from knee trouble, putting in doubt whether he’ll play again in the majors. The 35-year-old Pedroia has tried the past two seasons to fully return from surgery on his left knee. At a news conference Monday at Fenway Park, Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski called it an “indefinite leave at this point.” Boston put the

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Yonny Chirinos was pulled after five no-hit innings and Tampa Bay beat Toronto. Chirinos (6-1) made his 11th appearance and fifth start this season. Oliver Drake relieved to begin the sixth and gave up a leadoff single to Luke Maile. Five Rays relievers completed a four-hitter.

PIRATES 8, REDS 5; REDS 8, PIRATES 1 CINCINNATI — José Iglesias hit his first career grand slam off Mitch Keller in the right-hander’s major league debut, and Cincinnati routed Pittsburgh for a split of their day-night doubleheader. Iglesias’ homer was part of a six-run first inning. Derek Dietrich and Yasiel Puig added back-to-back homers in the seventh against Alex McRae. The Pirates rallied to win the opener, going ahead to stay when Bryan Reynolds hit a tiebreaking, two-run triple off David Hernandez (1-3) in a four-run eighth. Starling Marté followed with a homer that made it 8-4. Josh Bell hit his 17th home run for Pittsburgh. He has 11 this month, tops in the majors. Kyle Crick (2-1) got four outs for the win, and Felipe Vázquez earned his 14th save. The Reds jumped all over Keller (0-1) in the nightcap. The fast start was more than enough support for Sonny Gray (2-4), who pitched six innings of one-run ball and struck out seven in his second straight win. The doubleheader was scheduled to make up a March 30 rainout.

ORIOLES 5, TIGERS 3 BALTIMORE — Renato Núñez and Jonathan Villar homered, and Baltimore benefited from several miscues by skidding Detroit. In a matchup between two struggling teams, the Orioles prevailed because of the long ball and a throwing error by shortstop Ronny Rodriguez that produced two unearned runs. Núñez hit a two-run homer off Daniel Norris (2-3) and Villar added a solo shot against Victor Alcántara in the seventh, sending Baltimore to its third win in 14 games. After Gabriel Ynoa pitched four innings for Baltimore, Dan Straily (2-4) allowed one run in four innings and Shawn Armstrong got three outs for his first save.

and they said they want to make a change,” Williams said. “They want to support women that want to have families and that want to be moms. I’m glad that statement was made. ... That’s what it’s about.

It’s about learning from mistakes and doing better. “As time goes on, as technology changes and as the world changes,” she added. “People realize that we have to change our policies.”

Pedroia’s knee troubles began in April 2017, when then-Orioles star Manny Machado took out Pedroia with a hard slide at second base. “It sucks,” said Machado, now with the Padres. “Obviously, he could down as one of the greatest Red Sox to play this game. Whenever stuff like that happens, you definitely don’t want to walk away from the game, and hopefully he gets back and he gets healthy. I think he has a couple of more years on his contract, so I think he has a lot of time to get healthy and hopefully get back in the game.”

Pedroia has a $15 million salary this year and is owed $13 million in 2020 and $12 million in 2021, with $2.5 million a year deferred without interest. He re-aggravated his left knee in a game at Yankee Stadium on April 17 and was put on the 10-day IL with left knee irritation. He’s started and stopped rehab assignments a few times before he removed himself from a game at Double-A Portland last Friday due to soreness. “It’s kind of tough when all the doctors are saying ‘No’ and I’m saying ‘Yes,’” he said.

Today in History Today is Tuesday, May 28, the 148th day of 2019. There are 217 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 28, 1977, 165 people were killed when fire raced through the Beverly Hills Supper Club in Southgate, Kentucky. On this date: In 1533, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer, declared the marriage of England’s King Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn valid. In 1863, the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment, made up of freed blacks, left Boston to fight for the Union in the Civil War. In 1892, the Sierra Club was organized in San Francisco. In 1912, the Senate Commerce Committee issued its report on the Titanic disaster that cited a “state of absolute unpreparedness,” improperly tested safety equipment and an “indifference to danger” as some of the causes of an “unnecessary tragedy.” In 1918, American troops fought their first major battle during World War I as they launched an offensive against the German-held French village of Cantigny (kahn-tee-NYEE’); the Americans succeeded in capturing the village. In 1929, the first all-color talking picture, “On with the Show!” produced by Warner Bros., opened in New York. In 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt pushed a button in Washington signaling that vehicular traffic could begin crossing the justopened Golden Gate Bridge in California. Neville Chamberlain became prime minister of Britain. In Nazi Germany, Volkswagen was founded by the German Labour Front. In 1940, during World War II, the Belgian army surrendered to invading German forces. In 1957, National League owners gave permission for the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants to move to Los Angeles and San Francisco. In 1964, the charter of the Palestine Liberation Organization was issued at the start of a meeting of the Palestine National Congress in Jerusalem. In 1972, Edward, The Duke of Windsor, who had abdicated the English throne to marry Wallis Warfield Simpson, died in Paris at age 77. In 1987, to the embarrassment of Soviet officials, Mathias Rust (mahTEE’-uhs rust), a young West German pilot, landed a private plane in Moscow’s Red Square without authorization. (Rust was freed by the Soviets the following year.) Ten years ago: A white New York City police officer killed an off-duty black colleague in a friendly fire incident in East Harlem. (A grand jury declined to indict Officer Andrew Dunton in the shooting of Officer Omar Edwards, who had drawn his gun and was chasing a man who had broken into his car.) Kavya Shivashankar, a 13-year-old girl from Kansas, spelled “Laodicean (lay-AHD’-uh-SEE’-uhn)” (lukewarm or indifferent in religion or politics) to win the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Five years ago: Seeking to redefine America’s foreign policy for a postwar era, President Barack Obama told West Point graduates the United States remained the only nation with the capacity to lead on the world stage but argued it would be a mistake to channel that power into unrestrained military adventures. Maya Angelou, 86, a Renaissance woman who survived the harshest of childhoods to become a force on stage, screen and the printed page, died in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. One year ago: Speaking before an audience of Cabinet members, military leaders, veterans and families, President Donald Trump paid a Memorial Day tribute at Arlington National Cemetery, saying he came to honor “America’s greatest heroes.” The Golden State Warriors reached the NBA Finals with a win over the Houston Rockets; it was the fourth straight year the Warriors would meet the Cleveland Cavaliers in the finals. Today’s Birthdays: Actress Carroll Baker is 88. Producer-director Irwin Winkler is 88. Actor John Karlen is 86. Basketball Hall of Famer Jerry West is 81. Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani is 75. Singer Gladys Knight is 75. Singer Billy Vera is 75. Singer John Fogerty (Creedance Clearwater Revival) is 74. Country musician Jerry Douglas is 63.

Actress Carey Mulligan is 34. Actor Joseph Cross is 33. Thought for Today: “Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.” -- Maya Angelou (1928-2014).

Memories of the good times haunt woman after divorce him, but if you hadn’t done it, he probably would not have straightened out. Sometimes love is not enough, particularly when it’s a one-way street. It is time to quit looking backward and concentrate on your future. See your ex as little as Abigail Van Buren possible, and allow yourself to grieve the lost relationship for a specific period of time. When that time period is over, concentrate on meeting new people and cultivating new interests. If necessary, talking with a therapist may be helpful, and I hope you will consider it. There is life after this, but only if you will allow it. DEAR ABBY: My best friend of 50 years was recently diagnosed with early stages of Alzheimer’s. Because her memory was beginning to slip, my husband and I moved her in with us. She pays us rent and contributes to meals. The problem is, she has told friends that because she pays rent she shouldn’t have to help around the house. My husband and I both work. It would be nice if she would cook us dinner oc-

of what occurs in the morning. As a result of conversation, you discover a different perspective. You might be ready to make a change regarding a financial issue. Tonight: Opt for togetherness. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH In the morning, plunge into your work or project. By afternoon, touch base with a partner. You could be tightly tangled in an interaction with this person. During midafternoon, find out where others are coming from. After your discussion, make a decision. Tonight: Follow another’s lead. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Tap into your creativity when dealing with a child or loved one. You’ll enjoy this time together. By afternoon, you plunge into work and get into a routine. Touch base with an associate you really care about and often work with. Tonight: To the wee hours. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You could be emotional this morning. During the afternoon, you get past this intensity and allow greater spontaneity. In a sense, you feel liberated and ready to deal with a big personality in your life. Handle what’s on your mind directly. Tonight: Express your sense of humor. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Settle in; make time for a long conversation that you’ve been putting off. Once you air out your concerns, you’ll feel far better. Head home early to relax and visit with a loved one. You connect in a unique manner. Tonight: Don’t push. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Hold back spending, and don’t push yourself as hard as you have been. Fatigue marks decisions made today. Instead, take your time, get opinions and weigh the pros and cons. You could find that your opinions transform. Tonight: Hang out. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH You seem to have bloomed in front of another person’s observing eye. You’re aware of this person’s interest in you, but you haven’t allowed him or her to get close. You might want to experience how you feel around this person. Tonight: Make it your treat. BORN TODAY Attorney Rudy Giuliani (1944), Senator Marco Rubio (1971), singer/songwriter Gladys Knight (1944)

SOAP SAVER Dear Heloise: We watch our pennies and look for ways to save. We buy large refills of hand soap, dish soap and window cleaner, and refill smaller containers for use. A 90-ounce refill of dish soap costs just a little more than a 10-ounce bottle and is good for nine refills. Regular hand soap can be used in the new foam dispensers by refilling with a mix of soap and water. -- J.C.S., North Palm Beach, Fla. WRAP IT UP ... Dear Heloise: Various substitutes for wrapping paper: 1. Calendar pages, which come in so many sizes and are colorful. 2. Larger packages can be wrapped in posters. Some card shops/bookstores give away posters that haven’t been sold. 3. Large packages can be wrapped in bulletin board paper, which comes in beautiful colors. There’s usually a bin of remnants. This paper is found in art supply shops, school supply stores, bookstores that cater to teachers, etc. Looks amazing with ribbon. All of these use quality paper and in most cases are recycled! -- An Avid Reader in Murray, Ky. MAGNETIC APPEAL Dear Heloise: I bought a magnetic closure for my necklaces; it’s easier to get them on and off. The manufacturer suggests to not pull the magnets apart straightaway. Rather, open the magnets at an angle, like I’m cracking an egg. This lessens the wear on the magnets. -- Julie W., Tyler, Texas

DEAR ABBY: I was married to my husband for 29 years. We were separated off and on more than 10 of those years. We were both in other relationships but would reconnect for months and sometimes years. Then, because our lifestyles are so different, we would split up again. I divorced him two years ago, but we see each other off and on as friends. I haven’t been in a relationship since our divorce because I still love him. He couldn’t stop the street life, and I got tired of living on the edge with him. He’s now in church, off drugs. He has gained back some weight and looks like the man I first fell in love with. I tell him every time I see him that I still love him, but he doesn’t believe me and acts like he hates me. We have a 27-year-old daughter he loves and sees. I think of the good times we had together day and night. I can’t sleep sometimes and feel so unhappy without him. Abby, what can I do to move on? -- LONELY AND LOST IN MARYLAND DEAR LONELY AND LOST: You may love the person your ex-husband was in the beginning, but you divorced him for good reasons. Chief among them, he became someone else because of his addiction and his choices. He may blame you for divorcing

Pampering your cat with homemade food? It may do more harm than good, UC Davis study finds By Mila Jasper The Sacramento Bee (TNS)

Making homemade cat food may sound like exactly the kind of special care feline friends deserve, but according to a first of its kind study from researchers at UC Davis, such homeprepared diets may not be healthy or safe. The study, released last week, examined the nutritional adequacy of 114 recipes found online and in recipe books. Researchers discovered that not only are many recipes lacking in essential nutrients, but 7% of the recipes examined included ingredients that are potentially toxic to adult

cats, such as garlic, garlic powder, onions and leeks. Most commonly, cats with medical issues such as diseases or that are picky eaters get put on home prepared diets so their owners can cater to their needs or preferences. Homemade cat food diets also gained popularity when news broke more than a decade ago that toxic substances were found in commercial pet food imported from China. In addition, pet diets made with sustainable or organic ingredients have gotten attention as people become more interested in sustainable eating for themselves. But lead study author

ANNABELLE

• Domestic • Medium Hair • Young • Female • Small • edium Coat • House Trained • Vaccinations up to Date • Spayed/ Neutered • Good in a Home With Other Cats, Children

Meet Annabelle Adorable little girl about a year old, Annabelle is a sweetheart of the first degree. She is so easy and quiet and gentle. She walks into the house and soon you would find that you have a forever kitty who fits in so well. Annabelle once lived outside and doesn’t want to do that again, but she will want to go outside to play with her kitty friends when spring comes.

Jennifer Larsen, a veterinary nutritionist with the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, said it is “very, very rare that we find (a homemade recipe) that is balanced.” “Cats require about 40 different essential nutrients,” Larsen said. “All of those things have to be present in appropriate amounts, and ratios are really important for pets.” Yet only five of the 114 recipes were found to meet all but one of the essential nutrient requirements. Those five were authored by veterinarians, and while Larsen said they performed better than most in the study, they still had up to 12

nutrient deficiencies. Nonveterinarian recipes had up to 19 deficiencies. One of the biggest issues was that recipes were too generic, Larsen said, which is contrary to the point of making customized cat meals. “Generic recipes that are widely available are really too vague to be replicated and to be useful to owners,” Larsen said. For example, such recipes would instruct home chefs to “add a multivitamin appropriate for your pets,” she said, without defining what is “appropriate.” Here’s how to ensure your cat is on an appropriate diet, according to Larsen:

If the cat has no medical difficulties that necessitate a special diet and the cat will eat anything, don’t bother with homemade cat food. “We generally recommend choosing diets from large, experienced manufacturers that have comprehensive quality control,” Larsen said. Pet food brands that have attempted to demonize mainstream commercial pet food have done so unnecessarily, Larsen said. Cat owners who want to make homemade food should consult with a board certified veterinary nutritionist. These folks are actual pet doctors who can formulate home cooked diets based on an individual cat’s

needs. Owners can start at their regular veterinarian for general recommendations, and the vet can then connect the owner with a board certified veterinary nutritionist for specific guidance. The third option is a step down from a full consultation, but still a good option for people who want to home prepare. Pet owners can use online sources like balanceit.com, which is based in Sacramento, or petdiets.com to formulate diet plans. Both are run by board certified veterinary nutritionists, Larsen said, but because they are online programs, they still cannot get as specific and customized as a consultation.

Meet Tank This boy has a sad story and all he wants is a new home where he will never have to be stuck on the end of a chain again. He can be submissive at times and he might be better in a home with no children. For the person living away from people he is going to be a great dog. He just gets overwhelmed and then he can act out. He really just wants someone to himself.
