Trump honors fallen and families in Memorial Day address
ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - President Donald Trump on Monday expressed the nation's "boundless" gratitude for the ultimate sacrifice paid by Americans defending the United States, dedicating his first Memorial Day address as commander in chief to a top Cabinet secretary and two other families who lost loved ones. Participating in the somber, annual observance at Arlington National Cemetery, Trump recounted the stories of Green Beret Capt. Andrew D. Byers of Colorado Springs and Christopher D. Horton of the Oklahoma National Guard as Byers' tearful parents and Horton's emotional widow looked on. Trump also singled out for special mention Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired Marine four-star general whose son, Marine 2nd Lt.


French president flexes diplomatic muscles in Putin meeting
VERSAILLES, France (AP) - Flexing his diplomatic muscles, French President Emmanuel Macron said he had ``extremely frank'' and ``direct'' talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday and launched an extraordinary attack on two state-funded Russian media outlets he accused of spreading ``lying propaganda'' during France's presidential campaign. Macron's full-on blast at the state news agency Sputnik and broadcaster Russia Today came at a news conference with Putin standing at his side. His comments underscored the clear differences between the two men on multiple issues and fulfilled the French president's campaign promises to pull no punches with Russia when needed.

Protest sparks Texas lawmaker threats of gun violence
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Hundreds of protesters opposing Texas' tough new anti-"sanctuary cities" law launched a raucous demonstration from the public gallery in the Texas House on Monday, briefly halting work and prompting lawmakers on the floor below to scuffle - and even threaten gun violence - as tense divides over hardline immigration policies boiled over. Activists wearing red T-shirts reading "Lucha," or "Fight," quietly filled hundreds of gallery seats as proceedings began. After about 40 minutes, they began to cheer, drowning out the lawmakers below. Protesters also blew whistles and chanted: "Here to stay!" and "Hey, hey, ho, ho, SB4 has got to go," referring to the bill that Gov.


Ultimate sacrifice: Teen dies shielding cousin from gunfire
BROOKHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - It was after midnight when a gunman burst into the living room of a southern Mississippi home where young people were playing video games. Caleb Edwards, 15, said the man - whom he knows as Corey Godbolt - demanded to know where his cousin's parents where. Jordan Blackwell, 18, said they were gone to another town. At that, Godbolt "just started shooting," Caleb said. As people scrambled to hide inside the Brookhaven home, Blackwell used his own body to shield his cousin Caleb from the gunfire. With his mother standing by his side Monday, Caleb spoke calmly as he recounted to The Associated Press how he felt the force of the impact as Blackwell was shot Sunday.


City clash fuels fear of IS foothold in southern Philippines
MARAWI, Philippines (AP) - Inside this lakeside city dotted with hundreds of mosques, a powerful militant designated by the Islamic State group as its leader in the Philippines has managed to unify a disparate group of gunmen under a single command. Over the past week, his fighters have shown their muscle, withstanding a sustained assault by the Philippine military and increasing fears that the Islamic State group's violent ideology is gaining a foothold in this country's restive southern islands, where a Muslim separatist rebellion has raged for decades. The army insists the drawn-out fight is not a true sign of the militants' strength, and that the military has held back to spare civilians' lives.


Portland mayor aims to nix free-speech rally, fears 'hatred'
The mayor of Portland, Oregon, on Monday urged U.S. officials and organizers to cancel a "Trump Free Speech Rally" and other similar events, saying they are inappropriate and could be dangerous after two men were stabbed to death on a train as they tried to help a pair of young women targeted by an anti-Muslim tirade. Mayor Ted Wheeler said he hopes the victims will inspire "changes in the political dialogue in this country." It comes amid a wider debate in the U.S. about the First Amendment, often in liberal cities like Portland and Berkeley, California, and on college campuses, where violent protests between far-right and far-left protesters have derailed appearances by contentious figures.


Tiger Woods blames medications for his arrest on DUI charge
Tiger Woods attributed an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medicine for his arrest on a DUI charge that landed him in a Florida jail Monday for nearly four hours. Woods, the 14-time major champion who had back surgery five weeks ago, was arrested on suspicion of DUI at about 3 a.m. Monday and taken to Palm Beach County jail. He was released on his own recognizance. An arrest report might be available on Tuesday, Jupiter Police spokeswoman Kristin Rightler said. "I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions," Woods said in a statement Monday evening.


Guentzel's goal lifts Penguins by Predators 5-3 in Game 1
PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Penguins rarely tested the hottest goaltender in the playoffs in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against Nashville. They beat Pekka Rinne anyway. Rookie Jake Guentzel fired the puck past Rinne with 3:17 left in regulation to put the Penguins ahead to stay in a back-and-forth 5-3 victory on Monday night. Guentzel snapped an eight-game goalless drought to help the defending champions escape after blowing a three-goal lead. Nick Bonino scored twice for the Penguins. Conor Sheary scored his first of the playoffs and Evgeni Malkin scored his eighth. The Penguins won despite putting just 12 shots on goal.


Award-winning sports writer Frank Deford dies at 78
Frank Deford, the award-winning sports writer and commentator whose elegant reportage was a staple for years at Sports Illustrated and National Public Radio, has died. He was 78. He died Sunday in Key West, Florida, his family said Monday. Deford was a six-time Sports Writer of the Year and a member of the National Association of Sportscasters and Sportswriters Hall of Fame. He wrote and spoke with a lyrical touch and this month retired from NPR's "Morning Edition" after 37 years as a contributor. "Frank was dealing with an audience that doesn't turn to the sports pages first thing," said Tom Goldman, an NPR sports correspondent who recently spent time with Deford in Key West.
