Corpse’s tattoo clue
Mystery of dismembered body in Red Hook Channel
By MAX JAEGER
and JENNIFER BAIN
Police hoping to identify the
woman whose dismembered body
was found floating in Red Hook
Channel off Brooklyn on Tuesday
have released a photo of a mysterious tattoo on the corpse.
The ink — a curly script surrounded by several stars — appears
to be a name written in Sanskrit, according to several people who
know the language.
From left to right, the characters
correspond to the sounds “li” “li”
“an” “na,” according to April
Dechagas, a teacher at Jivamukti
Yoga School who can read Sanskrit.
The tattoo (pictured) has led several Sanskrit readers to speculate it
was a transliteration of the female
name Liliana.
“This is definitely Sanskrit, although it is not grammatically correct at all. I think it is trying to say
‘Liliana,’ ” Dechagas said.
“This is not how it should be written at all, but from what I can make
out, that is what it says,” she said.
G. Padmanabhan, spokesman for
the New York Ganesh Temple in
Queens, added, “It could also be a
name, Lili — and ‘ana’ means
brother in some contexts.”
Annapurna Potluri Schreiber,
who works at Columbia University’s South Asia Institute, explained, “ ‘Ana’ means ‘older
brother,’ but it’s also used for close
friends.”
The experts agreed the tattoo has
inconsistencies suggesting that neither the victim nor the artist actually understood Sanskrit.
Passers-by discovered the corpse
— which police say was only a pelvis and thighs — Tuesday morning
floating off of Pier 44 near Conover
and Reed streets.
“The woman wasn’t just murdered — she was butchered,” speculated the man who made the gruesome discovery and asked that his
identity be withheld.
The body is not badly decomposed, leading police to believe it
was dismembered before being
thrown into the water, rather than
breaking apart as a result of decomposition, sources said.
NYPD divers spent Wednesday
searching for clues off the pier, but
were still coming up empty-handed
by the afternoon.
It was not clear if the body was
deposited in the water there or
floated to that location from elsewhere, the divers said.

The 2018 Grammy Awards will be held in New York

The Recording Academy announced Wednesday it
had signed a four-year deal with the AEG entertainment company to host the show at the Staples Center.
The Grammy ceremony will mark its 60th anniversary when it takes place at Madison Square Garden

A Texas man’s 3-mile daily walk to work has inspired a group of strangers to collect enough money
to buy him a car.
Andy Mitchell spotted Justin Korva, 20, walking to
the suburban Dallas taco restaurant where he works
and offered him a ride.
Korva told him he was saving up for a car, and his
story inspired Mitchell and some friends to secretly
set up a donation box. The group surprised Korva
with a used Toyota Camry on Friday.

Noise complaints have reached
a deafening pitch across the city
ever since the NYPD was forced
to change its rules on dealing with
wild parties and loud neighbors.
Lawmakers say constituents
have been contacting them “almost every day” to lament the effect of a revision in the department’s patrol guide forbidding
cops from entering homes over
noise calls unless they have permission.
The shift was prompted by successful lawsuits against the city in
which homeowners objected to
cops entering their residences
without warrants.
Councilman Fernando Cabrera
(D-Bronx) said that for his University Heights constituents, the
change is “incomprehensible.”
“This is a big deal,” Cabrera
said. “I got complaints before the
change in policy, and I’m getting
more complaints now . . . It’s almost every day.”
There have been 210,580 noise
complaints reported to the 311
hotline so far this year, a nearly 3
percent increase over the same
time last year, according to the
city’s Open Data Web site.
They run the gamut from dogs
barking and loud TVs to noisy
parties and late-night construction.
Since violators are now free to
pump up the volume again as
soon as cops leave the scene —
with a threat of a summons the
only real deterrent — neighbors
are more likely to be pitted
against one another to resolve a
noise beef.
In a recent incident on Father
Zeiser Place, Cabrera said one
man’s loud sound system quickly
became another’s reason to get in
his face.
“It got very confrontational,”
Cabrera recalled. “They almost
got into a fight.”
Councilman Alan Maisel (DBrooklyn), who has a bill in the
works to let cops to carry soundgauge units, said the new rules are
particularly problematic in his
Mill Basin-Canarsie district because so many row houses there
are connected.
“The noise is just impossible,”
he said. “People are really upset
about it.”
It ranks as the top quality-of-life
complaint to his office, Maisel
said, adding that most people calling in are “afraid” to confront
their neighbors because of the potential for violence.
“It’s a real problem,” he said.
Councilman Joe Borelli (R-SI)
said while noise complaints often
increase in the summer, residents
in his district want cops to intervene to keep their streets quiet
and clean.
“It’s an indication of the ‘progressive’ direction the city is going in when complaints against
the Police Department take precedent over the community’s concerns over quality of life,” he said.
“I’ve yet to find any New Yorker
who wants to find urine on their
stoop.”
Noise is routinely the No. 1 complaint filed via 311.
NJ thief swipes street sweeper
New Jersey police are looking for a suspect who stole a street sweeper
and went on a brief joyride before crashing it.
The theft happened at around 2 a.m. Wednesday as a worker was
changing a garbage bag on the vehicle, Paterson police said.
The suspect drove the vehicle for about a half-mile and then crashed
into several parked cars before running away.
No one was injured, but the cars were damaged.

Midnight
deal for
school
control
Legislative leaders in Albany
reached an agreement late
Wednesday night to extend mayoral control of New York City
schools for two years — but the
final measure includes nothing
for charter schools.
The text of the omnibus bill
was released at around midnight,
and the Democratic controlled
Assembly approved it Thursday.
Mayoral control was set to expire on Friday without the extension, which the GOP-controlled
Senate is expected to vote on
later Thursday.
State Sen. Majority Leader John
Flanagan (R-LI) did not get the
increase in school charters he
had sought, but several upstate
initiatives sweetened the deal
enough for his members.
Those sweeteners include up to
$50 million in flood assistance for
the region around Lake Ontario, a
loosening of land restrictions in
part of the Adirondack Park, and
additional revenue for Vernon
Downs, a racetrack that was
ready to close.
Other additions that made the
package bearable for Republicans
include greater retirement benefits for uniformed first responders injured on the job, a tax break
for lower Manhattan real estate,
and a three-year extension of
county sales taxes for both upstate and New York City.
The city’s personal income tax
was also extended until 2020.
The taxes were set to expire this
fall.
The bill even allows Gov.
Cuomo, who spearheaded construction of the new Tappan Zee
Bridge, to name the span after his
late father, former Gov. Mario
Cuomo.
But some legislators said lifting
the cap on charter schools was as
urgent as letting Mayor de Blasio
retain authority over schools.
The Legislature had presumably gone home for the summer
last week without any of the measures being passed, but Cuomo
issued a proclamation forcing the
legislators back to the statehouse
for a special session in order to
address mayoral control.
Sources said Cuomo would also
announce assistance for the beleaguered MTA later Thursday.

Massey debates
. . . & then quits
GRIM FORESHADOW: Paul Massey, who afterward said he had already decided to drop out, debates at the Yale Club Wednesday.
By YOAV GONEN
Just a couple of hours after
participating in a mayoral debate, Republican candidate Paul
Massey suddenly announced
Wednesday that he’s dropping
out of the race for City Hall.
Although he has already spent
more than $4 million, the realestate executive said he didn’t
believe he could raise the funds
needed to oust Mayor de Blasio
in a general election.
“Because of a confluence of
things, I stopped seeing a path
for fund-raising to a level I
thought we would need to be a
competitor,” he told The Post.
“We had been talking about this
for several days.
“There was a lot of back-and
forth over strategy.”
Massey said he made the final
decision Tuesday but that he
decided to participate in a
Crain’s New York Business
debate at the Yale Club because
he had already committed to it.
His departure left Staten
Island state Assembly member
Nicole Malliotakis as the leading GOP contender and also
freed up Massey’s endorsement
from the Independence Party.
Malliotakis told The Post she
was caught off guard by her
rival’s decision.
“I am very surprised,” she
said. “We just had a spirited debate about the issues this morning . . . I’m now proud to go
head-to-head with Bill de Blasio
and hold him accountable for
his failed leadership.”
Massey raised $5.7 million for
the race, but $2.7 million came
in the form of loans out of his
own pocket.
More than a half-dozen consultants and firms earned sixfigure sums during his ninemonth campaign, raising the
eyebrows of political veterans.
Several said it never quite
seemed like Massey had his
head or his heart in the game —
particularly when he skipped
out on the Celebrate Israel Parade earlier this month for a trip
to France with his wife.
Massey, who didn’t rule out
future political options, called
the claim “ridiculous.”
“My heart was in it — and my
heart’s still in it,” he said.

UNDERDOG ON THE RISE: Staten Island/Brooklyn Republican Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, 36, is poised to take on Mayor de Blasio in November’s general election.
By CARL CAMPANILE
Some Republicans assumed
that Staten Island Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis wasn’t
serious when she announced in
April she was considering a run
for mayor.
“There was the whole issue
whether she was just raising her
profile. People didn’t know if she
was in, or she would drop out,”
said Manhattan Republican Party
Chairwoman Adele Malpass.
Two months later, the daughter
of Greek and Cuban immigrants
is the GOP’s presumptive nominee to take on Democratic incumbent Bill de Blasio after her
chief primary rival, businessman
Paul Massey, quit the race.
And in a short period of time,
Malliotakis has proven she’s the
real deal, Malpass said.
Malliotakis, 36, immediately
filed papers declaring her candi-
dacy, participated in forums,
stumped across the city and won
the additional backing of the
Conservative Party.
“The [Republican] party is going to unite behind her. Over the
last two months she has proven
to be an energetic, knowledgeable campaigner who could make
Bill de Blasio a one-term mayor,”
Malpass said.
Malliotakis — who would be
the city’s first female mayor — is
familiar with being an underdog.
Her initial claim to fame is defeating former Democratic Assemblywoman Janele Hyer-Spencer — a close pal of former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver —
in 2010 in a district that includes
parts of Staten Island and southern Brooklyn.
“I was outspent 2¹/₂-to-1 against
Shelly Silver’s favorite member. I
had no union support,” Malliotakis recalled.
“I defeated an incumbent once.
We can do it again.”
Speaking of her Cuban mom
and Greek dad who came to
America without a command of
the English language, she said,
“This exemplifies how special
America and New York City are.
In one generation their daughter
is running for mayor.” Her parents
became American citizens in 1971.
The assemblywoman is happily
single. “It’s difficult to find someone who wants to put up with my
schedule,” she said.
Her favorite historical political
figure is President Theodore
Roosevelt, who also served as
New York governor at the turn of
the 20th century.
“Teddy Roosevelt was a reformer who always did what was
right, regardless of party,” she said.
Malliotakis long ago was bitten
by the political bug.
She was senior-class president
at New Dorp HS, from which she
graduated in 1998.
She served as an aide to former
Gov. George Pataki, working on
New York City issues, and also
worked as a staffer to late Staten
Island state Sen. John Marchi,
who twice ran for mayor.
A graduate of Seton Hall University and Wagner College, Malliotakis also was employed for
four years as a public-affairs
manager for Con Edison before
her election to the Assembly.
A fitness buff, Malliotakis is a
yoga enthusiast who sponsors
classes for the public in Midland
Beach and Bay Ridge. She also
bikes and has taken boxing-fitness classes in Albany.
As for the campaign ahead, Malliotakis promises to be a takecharge mayor — especially when
it comes to fixing the transit mess.
“I would be on the phone today
reaching out to the governor and
[to MTA chief] Joe Lhota making
a financial commitment to the
subway system,” she said.
She hit de Blasio on the homeless crisis, the failure to stop child
abuse and for going soft on illegal
immigrants who commit crimes.
She even used de Blasio’s “tale
of two cities” theme to tweak him
— when it comes to the “unfair”
property-tax system.
“The value of my home is a little more than a third of Bill
de Blasio’s, yet I’m paying more
in property taxes,” said Malliotakis, vowing an overhaul.
During her debate against Massey
before his withdrawal Wednesday,
she showed her sense of humor.
Asked what her campaign slogan might be, she responded: “Get
New York City out of the hole, so
vote for Nicole,” eliciting laughs.

Mayor de Blasio has pledged to
crack down on oft-abused parking
placards, but his office could not
even give a full account Wednesday of how many it has doled out
to New York officials this year.
Dozens of state pols were left
off a list Hizzoner’s office shared
with reporters detailing the 180plus parking cards — which allow
drivers to break certain parking
laws in the line of duty — that the
Mayor’s Office issued in 2017.
The Post had requested an account of all placards issued by the
Mayor’s Office.
A spokesman directed reporters
to file a Freedom of Information
request for the 47 Assembly members and seven state senators who
reportedly got placards — despite
already forking over the incomplete 180-name list without such a
requirement.
The placards have become a
hot-button issue because many recipients abuse the privilege by using expired placards and parking
in places the cards do not allow.

Key evidence — including the
victim’s body — should be inadmissible in the murder case
against a defendant in a grisly Upper East Side stabbing because
detectives questioned him without his lawyer present, according
to court papers filed Wednesday.
Lawrence Dilione also claims
he wasn’t read his Miranda
rights before giving detectives
directions to where he and codefendant James Rackover allegedly buried Joey Comunale.
The alleged misconduct —
which may have included prosecutors — means Dilione’s statements should be ruled inadmissible against him, according to his
Manhattan Supreme Court filing.
In addition, “any evidence
gained from the illegally obtained statements would constitute the fruits of the poisonous
tree” — including Comunale’s
remains, defense lawyer Michael
Pappa said.
Dilione is charged along with
Rackover — the surrogate son
and accused lover of “jeweler to
the stars” Jeffrey Rackover — in
Comunale’s slaying last Nov. 13.
Following the killing, James
Rackover and Dilione allegedly
drove Comunale’s mutilated
THEIR DAY IN COURT: Lawrence Dilione (left, in court Wednesday), who with James Rackover (right) is
charged with murdering Joey Comunale (inset), says cops illegally obtained evidence from him.
body to Oceanport, NJ, set it on
fire with gasoline and buried the
remains.
A civil suit filed by Comunale’s
dad, Pat — and revealed exclusively by The Post Monday —
accuses Jeffrey Rackover of trying to cover up the crime, in part
by letting James use his black
2015 Mercedes to move the body.
Wednesday’s court papers say
Dilione made a “clear and unequivocal assertion of his Fifth
Amendment privilege” while detectives drove him to the 13th
Precinct station house at 10:45
p.m. on Nov. 15.
During the ride, Dilione spoke
by phone with lawyer Joseph
Evans, and told the detectives he
wouldn’t answer any questions
without speaking to Evans, court
papers say.
But when Evans arrived at the
station house, he was “given the
runaround by four different police officers,” the papers state.
Eventually, a detective emerged
and said Dilione had told them
where Comunale was buried.
Evans told the detective that
Dilione shouldn’t be questioned
further, but Dilione allegedly
made two more statements without a lawyer present the next
day, including one to Manhattan
Chief of Detectives William Aubry, court papers say.
A spokeswoman for Manhattan
DA Cy Vance Jr. said prosecutors
“will respond to this motion appropriately in court.” Those papers are due Aug. 1.
The NYPD didn’t return a request for comment.
‘Jeans used’ to choke Sutton slay vic
James Rackover ordered
two pals to strip and then
used one of their pairs of
jeans to choke an unconscious Hofstra grad before
the young man was
stabbed to death, according to a grisly blow-byblow account offered
Wednesday by a co-defendant in the case.
Max Gemma said in
court papers he was asleep
on a couch in Rackover’s
Grand Sutton co-op when
he awoke to the sounds of
victim Joey Comunale
fighting with Lawrence
Dilione.
When Dilione knocked
out 26-Comunale, 26, with a
punch, “Rackover taunted
the defenseless Comunale,
punched and kicked him in
the head and face several
times and smashed the back
of his head into the hardwood floor several times,”
the Manhattan Supreme
Court filing states.
The Nov. 13 attack “left
Comunale bleeding profusely and created a
bloody mess in the living
room.” Then Rackover, 28,
an ex-con from Florida,
“panicked about returning
to prison,” say the court
papers, filed by Gemma
lawyer Mark Bederow.
“He ordered Gemma
and Dilione to take off
their clothes. They complied,”
according
to
Gemma’s account.
“Rackover straddled Comunale
and
tightly
wrapped what appeared to
be the jeans Dilione had
been wearing around his
hands, as if he was preparing to choke Comunale.”
Gemma says Dilione
then led him into Rackover’s bedroom, where he
stayed “until Dilione told
him to leave the apartment.”
“When Gemma left, Comunale was no longer on
the living-room floor and
Rackover, who was standing in the bathtub, glared
at Gemma,” who asked
Dilione if he should worry
“about Rackover harming
him in light of what he
witnessed,” court papers
say.
Gemma, 29, who is
charged with hindering
prosecution, detailed the
incident in a bid to be tried
separately from Rackover
and Dilione.Bruce Golding
Presidents of public colleges and universities saw their earnings climb by 5.3 percent last year, with several of them topping $1 million a year, according to an annual survey. The Chronicle of Higher Education’s study of more than 150 college presidents found that their average annual pay increased in fiscal year 2016 to $501,000. Among the top earners were eight public­
university presidents whose compensation exceeded $1 million, up from five the year before, the study found. Most of them come from the nation’s largest schools and university systems. AP
Shell shock in Sound
Experts at a Connecticut aquarium are trying to figure out how
crabs native to the Pacific Northwest ended up in the waters of
Long Island Sound.
Fishermen hauled up four unusual crabs off the coast of Norwalk
last week and threw three back, but
brought one 2½-pound Dungeness
crab to the Maritime Aquarium.
Aquarium experts say it is most
likely that someone bought them
and then released them.

HELL ON
RAILS
TOUGH JOB:
MTA workers on
Tuesday labor to
get the derailment
site ready for the
resumption of
A-train service.
By DANIELLE FURFARO
and DANIKA FEARS
TWU Local 100
A C train suffered a mechanical failure last year and
overshot a Harlem platform
— one stop away from this
week’s derailment, the MTA
admitted in response to a
$25 million lawsuit filed by a
woman who was badly
injured in the incident.
The train’s brakes apparently failed and it overshot
the 116th Street-Eighth Avenue station on April 28, 2016.
The conductor then pulled
the emergency brake, the
agency said in a report
turned over last week to lawyers for plaintiff Antoinette
Butler, 53.
“When I saw what happened [yesterday], I sank to
the ground and prayed,” Butler told The Post Wednesday.
“I’m just so angry. You
would think, accident after
accident, they’d know better.”
Butler had been seated on
the C train and had just gotten up to exit when it overshot the platform, causing
her to be thrown into a pole.
She tried getting up, but was
jerked right back into the
pole after the train “lurched”
forward again and halted.
She was treated for head,
neck, shoulder and knee injuries. She has since undergone three operations.

FAMILY TABLE: A day before two big House votes, President Trump listens Wednesday to those whose loved ones were killed by illegal immigrants.
Cmdr.-in-grief
on immigration
By MARISA SCHULTZ
On the eve of a key House vote
on immigration enforcement legislation,
President
Trump
Wednesday invited grieving families to the White House and
pledged an immigration crackdown on their behalf.
“You lost the people that you
love because our government refused to enforce our nation’s immigration laws,” Trump told families whose loved ones were
killed by undocumented immigrants.
“Nobody died in vain,” Trump
told the families.
About a dozen family members
joined Trump around the Cabinet Room table and each told
heartbreaking stories of their
son, daughter or parent being
murdered by someone who had
no right to be in the country.
They praised Trump for hearing
them express their grief, and
urged lawmakers to pass immigration bills to prevent more deaths.
Among the attendees was
Laura Wilkerson of Texas, whose
son Josh was tortured and killed
by an illegal immigrant.
“At the time he [Josh] was being slaughtered, I was calling his
cellphone and I always will wonder, ‘Did he hear that phone ring
in his pocket?’ ’’ Wilkerson said.
“Did he feel it? Did he know his
mom was looking for him the
minute he was leaving this Earth?
You don’t want any other family
to endure this. This is about public safety.”
On Thursday, the House will
vote on two immigration bills,
the No Sanctuary for Criminals
Act and Kate’s Law, named for
Kate Steinle, who was murdered
in 2015 by an undocumented immigrant who had been deported
five times.
The first bill would deny certain federal grants to sanctuary
cities that refuse to comply with
federal immigration rules.
Kate’s Law would increase
criminal penalties for undocumented immigrants who re-enter
the United States.
Partial travel ban starting
The Trump administration on
Wednesday set new criteria for
visa applicants from six mainly
Muslim nations and all refugees
requiring a “close” family or business tie to the United States.
The move came after the Supreme Court on Monday partially
restored President Trump’s executive order widely criticized as a
ban on Muslims.
Visas that have already been approved will not be revoked, but in-
structions issued by the State Department say new applicants from
Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Iran
and Yemen must prove a relationship with a parent, spouse, child,
adult son or daughter, son-in-law,
daughter-in-law or sibling already
in the United States.
The new rules take effect at
8 p.m. Eastern time Thursday.
Critics said they are watching
closely to see how the guidelines
are used.

Trump & O blew it on Russia: diplo
American elections are more vulnerable to future cyberattacks by Russia because both Presdient Trump and former President Barack Obama
failed to properly respond to Moscow’s meddling
in 2016, says a former US ambassador to NATO.
In testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Nicholas Burns, a retired career diplomat
and State Department official under the George W.
Bush administration, said Americans “deserved to
know” how Russian officials were trying to influence the most recent presidential election.
Burns’ testimony came days after a report in
The Washington Post revealed Obama withheld
important details about Russia’s cyber activity in
the waning days of the 2016 presidential election
for political reasons.
“I think if you go back and you look at it, the
American people, in my judgment, deserved to
know what was happening,” Burns said during an
exchange with Sen. James Risch (R-Idaho).
But Burns had even tougher words for Trump,
accusing the president of a “dereliction of basic
duty to defend the country” by refusing to further punish Russia for its interference.
“I find it dismaying and objectionable that President Trump continues to deny the undeniable
fact that Russia launched a major cyberattack
against the US,” he said.

Prez’s Cubs quip doesn’t score
President Trump honored the World
Series champion Chicago Cubs at the
White House Wednesday — but only
after ribbing the owner of a team in a
different sport.
Surrounded by a number of Cubs
players for a photo-op with their trophy, the president became preoccupied
with another guest.
“Where’s Dan Gilbert?” Trump said,
ordering an aide to bring the Cleveland
Cavaliers owner into the ceremony.
“He’s looking for a good basketball
player. Anybody play basketball?”
Trump said, turning to the baseball
players. The Cubs beat the Cleveland
Indians in the 2016 World Series, while
the Cavaliers lost the NBA championship to the Golden State Warriors.
Gilbert was at the White House for
an entirely different meeting, on urban
economic development. Marisa Schultz
The daily ‘fake news’ blast
President Trump blasted The New
York Times for claiming he is “not
totally engaged” in the ObamaCarerepeal debate, before training his
sights on The Washington Post.
“Some of the Fake News Media likes
to say that I am not totally engaged in
healthcare,” he tweeted Wednesday
morning. “Wrong, I know the subject
well & want victory for U.S.”
Minutes earlier, he took the Times
to task for writing a “false” story
about him.
“The failing @nytimes writes false
story after false story about me.
They don’t even call to verify the
facts of a story. A Fake News Joke!”
the president wrote.
The tweets came a day after Senate
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
pulled the plug on a bill to overhaul
ObamaCare after he couldn’t line up
the minimum 50 votes.
The Times article, published Tuesday, said the president stayed on the
sidelines as senators negotiated the
bill and suggested that he was not
fully conversant with the bill’s details.
Continuing his attack on the media, Trump blasted The Washington
Post, roping in its parent company,
Jeff Bezos’ Amazon.
“The #AmazonWashingtonPost,
sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet
taxes (which they should) is FAKE
NEWS!” Trump tweeted.
In an interview with Fox News last
May, Trump accused Bezos of “getting away with murder, tax-wise,” accusing the CEO of using The Washington Post for power so that the
politicians in DC “don’t tax Amazon
like they should be taxed.”

President
Trump
on
Wednesday
mysteriously
promised Americans “a big
surprise” while talking
about the Senate’s bill to
overhaul health care.
“Health care is working
along very well. We could
have a big surprise with a
great health-care package,”
Trump said in impromptu
remarks at the White
House after greeting the
World Series champion
Chicago Cubs.
Asked by a reporter to
elaborate, the president replied, “I said you’re gonna
have a great, great surprise.
It’s gonna be great!” and
walked away.
Earlier Wednesday, Trump
lavishly praised the Republican plan — a day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch
McConnell postponed a vote
because not enough of his
GOP colleagues backed it.
“We’re talking about a
great, great form of health
care. ObamaCare is dying,
it’s essentially dead. It’s been
a headache for everybody,
it’s been a nightmare for
many, and we’re looking at a
health care that will be a fantastic tribute to your country,” Trump said.
The president offered no
details, but insisted the Republican plan would provide
better care and be less expensive at the same time.
“This will be something
really special if we can get it
done. Hopefully, we’ll have it
soon,” he said.
Meanwhile,
McConnell
(R-Ky.), was working on a revised bill palatable to conservatives and moderates alike.
He is looking to submit it to
the independent Congressio-
nal Budget Office by Friday,
hoping to get a better “score”
than his initial effort did to
sell the plan to holdouts.
A skeptical Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said the
changes would sway votes
when “pigs could fly.”
The new CBO cost estimate
would reflect changes intended to entice opponents,
possibly including expanded
health savings accounts, the
removal of language defunding Planned Parenthood and
more extensive treatment for
opioid addiction.
“What [conservatives] are
looking for is not so much a
single sort of policy change
but certain policy outcomes
— driving down premiums,
reducing ObamaCare’s regulatory burdens, protecting
consumers, etcetera,” a
source told The Post.
McConnell delayed a vote
on the bill until after the
weeklong July 4 recess, giving GOP leaders more time
to court moderate and conservative holdouts.
Angry GOP senators took
out their frustration over the
stalled bill on CBO Director
Keith Hall on Tuesday —
even though he’s a staunch
conservative they chose
themselves in 2015.
On Wednesday, Republican senators were seen going to McConnell’s office to
discuss their issues with the
health-care bill.
Conservative senators say
the bill doesn’t go far enough
to repeal ObamaCare, while
moderates are worried about
how cuts in the growth of
Medicaid spending will affect their constituents.
Trump has been in contact
with nearly every holdout and
will continue courting them
over the weekend, a White
House aide told The Post.

Legendary FBI agent retires
Page

®
Emily
Smith
THE legendary FBI agent in charge of New
York’s counterterrorism division, Carlos T. Fernandez, is retiring after 21 years.
Fernandez, 50, was posted in Yemen after the
USS Cole bombing, in Afghanistan after 9/11 and
in Libya after Benghazi. He is joining Viacom as
their global head of security at their Times
Square headquarters. Insiders say the media giant has hired him to lead all of their security
teams on a global basis, protect their offices and
digital systems, and ensure the safety of Viacom
staff and guests who attend their events.
NYPD Assistant Commissioner J. Peter Donald told Page Six, “There’s been no better collaborator [with the NYPD] than Carlos, and he spent
his entire career protecting New York City from
acts of terrorism. We’ll miss him — he’s the best.”
Fernandez, a former Marine from Washington
Heights, joined the FBI in 1996, and investigated
the 1998 East Africa bombings and the 2000 USS
Cole attack. After 9/11, he went to Afghanistan and
became the chief FBI liaison to the Joint Special
Operations Command. He took part in arrests after
the 2010 World Cup suicide bombings in Kampala,
Uganda. After the 2012 Benghazi attack, Fernandez
was in charge of the investigation that tracked
down accused ringleader Ahmed Abu Khattala.
He became a supervisor within the Counterterrorism Division of the New York Field Office in
2010, and in 2015 he became the Special Agent-in-
Charge overseeing the Joint Terrorism Task
Force. Keeping New Yorkers safe, his division has
thwarted attacks such as a Times Square massacre plotted by ISIS sympathizer Mohamed Rafik
Naji, who intended to drive a garbage truck into a
crowd before his 2016 arrest. They also foiled a
Hezbollah strike with the 2017 arrest of Ali Kourani, who cased JFK for an attack. Last week,
Bronx man Saddam Mohamed Raishani was
arrested for trying to travel to Syria to join ISIS.
Jeffrey Ringel, who worked with Fernandez at
the FBI for 19 years, added, “Carlos is a great
American, a great agent and a great friend. His retirement is a big loss for New York, but his legacy
will live on at the FBI.”

Cobain’s lost art
HOLLYWOOD agency UTA is
bringing an art exhibition featuring
rare works by Kurt Cobain to the Seattle Art Fair. UTA Artist Space is behind the show, which includes two
paintings by Cobain that had been in
storage since the Nirvana singer’s
tragic 1994 death. The works will be
shown with a selection of Cobain’s
notebooks, and the show also includes
art by Mike Kelley, Joe Bradley, Nate
Lowman, Elizabeth Peyton and
Raymond Pettibon. The Seattle Art
Fair, taking place Aug. 3 through 6, is
owned by Microsoft mogul Paul Allen. UTA Fine Arts and artist Austin
Lee are hosting a pop-up exhibition at
Microsoft’s Fifth Avenue flagship
store in New York later this summer.

On a sci-fi mission
“BLADE Runner 2049” star and

Jared Leto (above) has partnered
with producer Rick Schwartz and
Omni magazine to develop a futuristic TV anthology, Page Six has
learned. Omni — a sci-fi mag that
ran from ’78 to ’95 — included writing by legends like Stephen King,
George R.R. Martin and William
Gibson. Leto, who was an Omni fan
as a kid, will produce the upcoming
sci-fi series through his company,

AT recent screenings of “The Defiant Ones” — a documentary series on Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre — HBO CEO Richard Plepler
recalled getting early career advice from Iovine, the Interscope Records co-founder who went on to launch Beats Electronics with Dre.
Thirty years ago, when Plepler was starting out, Iovine “had already
notched enough success to have a place in Malibu,” Plepler explained,
according to a spy. Plepler “went to visit Jimmy’s Malibu house, only
to find a touch-football game with actors, musicians and
pro athletes at the beach.” The future HBO boss was
so impressed by the A-list turnout, he recalled asking Iovine, “Jimmy, how did you make all this
money?” Iovine replied only, “Hip-hop.” Plepler
paused and asked, “You think I could get into
hip-hop?” But Iovine just shook his head, “Hiphop, not for you,” he said, then advised, “TV is
for you.” Plepler has been at HBO for more than
25 years. At NYC and LA screenings have been

also spotted chatting up another

“He was being a flirty guy,” the

left “Bachelor in Paradise,” although an ABC/Warner Bros. investigation found no misconduct in
the scandal that rocked the show.
Reality family tree
WHEN diners at LA hot spot
Craig’s saw Kris Jenner and David
Foster at an intimate meal together,
they assumed the pair was on a date.
A spy said they were “holding
hands” and “Jenner kissed Foster on
the cheek.” But the reality-TV elders are practically related. Kris’
ex — now Caitlyn Jenner — was
married to David’s ex, Linda
Thompson. So Kris and David
are both stepparents of Brody
and Brandon Jenner. We hear
they’ve been friends for years. Plus,
pals say that Kris is still dating boyfriend Corey Gamble.
Matt’s ‘puppy’ love
PALS of Matt Harvey (above)
say the Mets ace is not dating Lo
Bosworth, and he’s only cuddling
with a new puppy. Page Six reported the injured pitcher was seen
getting cozy in the Hamptons with
the former reality TV star. But a pal
played it off, saying, “He’s known
her for a few years . . . They run in
the same circle . . . They’ve hung
out in the past.” The source insisted
of Harvey: “He’s single, with a new
puppy he’s obsessed with. He’s so
nervous about making the team
happy . . . Dating is not on his radar.”
ANECDOTES about Sean Penn in “Revenge of the
Nerds” actor Curtis Armstrong’s upcoming memoir
have been removed after Penn objected, Page Six has
learned. Last month Web site Heat Street and other
publications posted passages from the book, out July 11
from Thomas Dunne Books, in which Armstrong
claimed Penn advised his friend Tom Cruise to sleep
with Rebecca
Rebecca De
De Mornay
Mornay during filming of their 1983
classic “Risky Business.” According to Heat Street,
Armstrong wrote in his book, “Revenge of the Nerd:
Or . . . The Singular Adventures of the Man Who
Would Be Booger,” that Penn advised Cruise of De
-ks you or she’s
Mornay, “Just tell her either she f ­- ­ks

copy of Armstrong’s book, also claimed that, as
resPenn gave his advice over breakfast at a hotel res­
taurant, he gathered up napkins and lit them on

the 1982 incident: “There were shouts as the

something to douse the flames while Sean and

A top masseuse — who gets paid
to bite clients — has become the latest Hollywood insider to go on the
record about Mariah Carey’s diva
antics. Dot Stein, a k a Dr. Dot, specializes in biting people’s backs during massages and has nibbled on
Lady Gaga and Kanye West,

Social Life/Gian Andrea Di Stefano
BROOKE Shields is prouder of her body now
at 52 than she was when she first modeled for
Calvin Klein as a skinny 15-year-old.
“Getting in shape is something I’ve worked
really, really hard at,” Shields says in the upcoming issue of Social Life magazine, which
hits newsstands Friday. “I’m finally confident
and comfortable in my skin.”
Shields, who is modeling for Calvin Klein
again after 37 years, said, “I’m happy with who
I am and where I am and what I look like. This
is me.”
Social Life publisher Justin Mitchell was able
to get Shields to pose in Calvin Klein underwear.
“We shouldn’t just see 15-year-old bodies. I
don’t want a 15-year-old body. I don’t want to
look like a little boy,” Shields said. “I have
curves, and I’ve worked on my strength.”
Asked if she would let her two daughters (ages
14 and 11) get into modeling and acting, Shields
said she wouldn’t until they finished college.
“It’s a cutthroat and demoralizing business.
Plus, they want you when they want you, and
you have to be there for auditions and work, and
my kids aren’t missing school.” The Princeton
grad said education saved her. “If I hadn’t had
the intellectual piece as my friend, I would have
been more devoured by an industry that has no
loyalty whatsoever. You do think because you’ve
been in the industry all of your life it will be
loyal, but it’s the antithesis of that.”
Brook Shields, 52, who’s modeling
for Calvin Klein again, says she won’t
allow her daughters to follow in her
footsteps until they finish college.
Franken fine by Dalton gang

though he was the only candidate.
“It seems rigged, like a Soviet-style

“Maybe Robert Mueller should investigate,” joked another insider.

Two longtime friends of
Robert Durst are fighting
in a Long Island court to
avoid testifying at a pretrial hearing next month
for his murder case in
California.
Stewart Altman, 74, a
high-school classmate of
Durst, and his wife, Emily,
appeared Wednesday in a
Mineola
courtroom,
where their attorneys said
a request by the Los Angeles district attorney to
testify at a July 24 hearing
was unnecessary.
Assistant
Nassau
County District Attorney
Veronica Guariglia, arguing on behalf of colleagues in Los Angeles,
countered, “This is a
criminal proceeding. It’s
not for us to say this is not
necessary.”
Durst, 74, an eccentric
millionaire, is facing mur-
der charges in Los Angeles in the 2000 death of
his friend Susan Berman.
Prosecutors
suspect
Durst (above) shot Berman because he feared she
might divulge incriminating information regarding
the 1982 disappearance of
his first wife, Kathy.
In the HBO documentary “The Jinx: The Life
and Deaths of Robert
Durst,” he is heard muttering that he “killed them
all.” He was arrested in
New Orleans in 2015 just
before the final episode
aired.
Los Angeles prosecutors say they want to
question the Altmans
about their friendship
with Durst, including his
state of mind in 2000
when he fled to Galveston, Texas, amid questions about Kathleen.
In 2001, Durst was
charged with killing a 71year-old neighbor in Galveston. While conceding
he chopped up Morris
Black’s body and tossed it
in the sea, Durst was acquitted of murder.
Lawrence Goldman and
another attorney for the
Altmans declined to answer on the record at the
end of the court proceeding when Guariglia asked
them if Durst was paying
their legal fees.
The judge said he will
rule before July 5.

An Australian cardinal became
the highest-ranking Vatican official to be charged in the church’s
ongoing sexual-assault scandal on
Thursday.
George Cardinal Pell, Pope
Francis’ chief financial adviser,
“is facing multiple charges, and
there are multiple
complainants,” said
Shane Patton, deputy
commissioner of Australia’s Victoria Police.
“It is important to
note that none of the
allegations that have
been made against
Cardinal Pell have,
obviously, been tested
in any court yet,” Patton said in Melbourne. “Cardinal
Pell, like any other defendant, has
a right to due process.”
Pell (inset), 76, was ordered to
appear in Melbourne Magistrates
Court on July 18.
Pell, Australia’s senior Catholic
Church official, faces multiple
charges of “historical sexual assault offenses,” meaning offenses
that generally occurred some
time ago.
Police gave no other details on
the allegations, but two men, now
in their 40s, have said that Pell
touched them inappropriately at a
swimming pool in the late 1970s,
when Pell was a senior priest in
Melbourne.
CASTLE KEEPER
A city landmark is set to undergo a $6 million restoration later this year. Belvedere Castle, a 19th­century centerpiece of Central Park and one of its most visited sites, will be cleaned and waterproofed this fall. The Central Park Conservancy says it also will install a new drainage system and rejuvenate the original wood designs of the castle’s pavilions. The park’s chief landscape architect, Christopher Nolan, says the castle was last restored in 1983. Officials say they also plan to add new playground equipment to the Billy Johnson Playground on the east side of the park. AP

said Wednesday.
The CSX Transportation workers were hit while they were on
the tracks as the train traveling

They were checking on a freight

Pell has repeatedly denied all
abuse charges leveled against
him.
The Archdiocese of Sydney issued a statement Thursday saying
Pell again “strenuously denied all
allegations” and would return to
Australia from the Vatican to
clear his name.
“He said he is looking forward
to his day in court and
will
defend
the
charges vigorously,”
the statement said.
Last year during an
Australian
inquiry
into
clerical
sex
abuse, Pell claimed he
was too ill to return
home and testified via
video link.
For years, Pell has
faced allegations that
he mishandled cases of clergy
abuse when he was archbishop of
Melbourne and, later, Sydney.
But more recently, Pell himself
became the focus of a clergy sexabuse investigation, with Victoria
detectives flying to the Vatican
last year to interview the cardinal.
The charges are a new and serious blow to Pope Francis, who
has already suffered several credibility setbacks in his promised
“zero tolerance” policy on sex
abuse.
When the pope was asked last
year about the accusations against
Pell, he said he wanted to wait for
Australian justice to take its
course before judging. With AP

his false-arrest and excessiveforce lawsuit against the NYPD —
despite his hopes for a $25 million

Manhattan federal Judge Jesse
Furman hinted in a court filing that
he tossed out the 6-foot-11 former
NBA player’s lawsuit because the
jurist agreed with city lawyers who
argued that Antic’s claims were
bogus, in part because he was not
harmed during his arrest.
The lawsuit is in relation to a

Marvel CEO Isaac Perlmutter’s
personal life tracks more closely
to a spy novel than comic books.
The reclusive businessman is legally battling Florida neighbor Harold Peerenboom, whom he allegedly impugned as a “sexual predator,” to protect details about his inhome security system, Hollywood
contacts and personal calendar.
Perlmutter’s attorney, Allan
Arffa, argued in Manhattan Supreme Court on Wednesday that
Perlmutter shouldn’t have to disclose his “floor plans and security
protocol,” and information about
having his Florida home swept for
bugs. Perlmutter also wants to
keep his Rolodex under lock and
key because it includes contacts
for Hollywood elite such as Disney CEO Bob Iger.
Peerenboom is suing Perlmutter
in Florida for defamation, but the
New York court is handling the related case about document exchange because Marvel is based in
Manhattan.

Warrior’s missed-bymissed-bying his fighters there on Thursdays.
“What a sick joke,” one of Velicovich’s
colleagues said. “A terrorist who loves a
good ice-cream sundae.”
“I imagined him talking to his hired killers about the next massacre over strawberry milkshakes and getting the ice-cream
foam on his beard,” Velicovich writes. Still,
they were never able to catch him there.
They uncovered a steady stream of background intelligence on al-Baghdadi, but
kept missing him, despite leads galore. This
weighed heavily on Velicovich.
“[He] really got to me. More than any
other target, I felt something twisting inside
me, eating at me, as we flew drones and
looked for him over those days and weeks.
“The drone feeds of the places where we
tracked him burned deeply in my mind: A
crumbling tower in downtown Iraq; a mud
hut in the north; a packed apartment building in the south, a white truck bumping
across the desert, filled with explosives. The
feed . . . churned though my head like a bad
song I couldn’t shake,” Velicovich writes.
V
ELICOVICH, who was raised in Katy,
Texas, was a freshman at the University
of Houston dreaming of a career in
high finance, until 9/11 shifted his focus. He
joined the Army the following year, and
rose up the military-intelligence ladder until being recruited by Delta.
The training was intense and brutal. Recruits called one of their schools Camp
Slappy “because of the interrogation training.”
“I was tied up and blindfolded, and beaten
up, just how you’d imagine it,” Velicovich
writes. “The program was meant to prepare
us in case of our capture by an enemy state
— and train us to escape. I learned how to
pick locks and get out of handcuffs.”
Velicovich and his fellow recruits also
suffered The Box, where, “we were individually locked in dark wooden containers for
what seemed like days. Shoulder to shoulder, with no room to sit down. They blared
rock music and sounds of babies crying.
One by one, they pulled us out and interrogated us for hours.”
He was eventually stationed in Iraq,
where his long hunt for al-Baghdadi began.
At one point, Velicovich discovered the
home of al-Baghdadi’s brother Jawwad.
Normally, combat teams on the ground
would coordinate with the drone teams, but
AP
F THE Russian military, despite its
boasts, failed to kill Islamic State leader
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a May 28 airstrike, one American officer can certainly sympathize.
As he outlines in his new book, “Drone
Warrior: An Elite Soldier’s Inside Account
of the Hunt for America’s Most Dangerous
Enemies” (Dey Street), Brett Velicovich
was part of a mission that came tantalizingly close to making the capture years earlier — only to miss by minutes.
Velicovich, who co-authored the book
with journalist Christopher S. Stewart, was
part of Delta Force, an undercover Army intelligence unit, and Velicovich’s specialty
was operating surveillance drones.
In 2010, his unit hunted al-Baghdadi for
months, launching more than 30 missions
in an attempt to capture him. As they
picked off and interrogated al-Baghdadi’s
associates, Velicovich writes, the terror
leader went underground.
Call him the man who can’t be killed.
According to the BBC, al-Baghdadi is
likely a native Iraqi who was detained by
US forces for four years during the early
days of the Iraq War. Reports suggest he
may have already been a militant during
Saddam Hussein’s rule, or could have been
radicalized while in US custody.
He is said to have risen to power in
al Qaeda in Iraq, a group that eventually
morphed into the Islamic State, in around
2010. He was officially declared a terrorist
by the US government in October 2011, and
a $10 million reward was offered for “information leading to his capture or death.”
Trying to locate al-Baghdadi — reportedly a fake name — has been a puzzle for
the United States. He maintains public silence for long periods of time, addresses his
supporters infrequently via audio or video,
and wears a mask when he chooses the latter.
For Velicovich, who refers to him as Abu
Dua, he was the most elusive target.
“We hunted Abu Dua for months, pressured sources and captives, put more
drones in the sky for eyes that never
blinked,” he writes.
“Our team conducted more than 32 raids
that specifically aimed to uncover him.
Most were chasing leads to his whereabouts or capturing people in his inner circle, attempts at tightening the noose around
his neck. We would get word that he was
running around with some target of ours
during his daily terrorism duties . . . Then,
boom, that other guy with him was suddenly gone, in our custody or dead. Imagine
everyone in your circle of friends and family . . . slowly disappearing one by one over
the course of a couple of months. I forced
him underground and got closer to ending
his reign than anyone else. But we were always just one step behind him.”
Constantly searching for him through
their drone feed, Velicovich and his unit
learned that al-Baghdadi had been known
to frequent a local ice-cream parlor, meet-

minutes mission to take out ISIS chief
for this, an operational commander decided
to work with Iraqi security forces instead.
Surveilling the house, they discovered
there were around 20 people living there,
including Jawwad and another of al-Baghdadi’s brothers, but they couldn’t tell if alBaghdadi himself was in the house.
The decision was made to conduct a raid,
but just as the assault team began to head
out, they were thrown by a man leaving the
house and driving away. They couldn’t tell
who it was, and only had one drone in the
sky. A quick decision needed to be made,
and they decided to keep the drone surveilling the house.
“It was the wrong move,” Velicovich
writes in the book, whose movie rights have
been optioned for “Transformers” director
Michael Bay.
When the team hit the house, al-Baghdadi
wasn’t there — and now, neither was Jawwad.
“We later found out that the local Iraqi
police forces working with us had tipped
off the family,” he writes, “allowing Jawwad
to escape minutes before.”
Making the miss more painful was the fact
that Velicovich and his unit had several
other close calls. Velicovich would later
learn that an earlier raid, then perceived to
be a success for nabbing several enemy operatives, missed al-Baghdadi by 10 minutes.
T
HEN, the following year, one of Velicovich’s mentors, Jack, came close once
again, having identified the house
where al-Baghdadi was hiding.
“Jack’s plan was to take him out that

night,” Velicovich writes, “but the State Department had changed the rules for raids
and a planned raid on the target was delayed.”
With new rules in place, operatives now
needed approval for their missions from
several layers of Washington bureaucracy,
and this could take days or even weeks.
“Jack tasked a drone over the house,” Velicovich writes, “and watched as a man exhibiting the exact same signature and description we always had for [al-Baghdadi]
arrived in a vehicle and proceeded inside.”
They soon confirmed via drone camera
that it was al-Baghdadi, but Jack couldn’t
get approval to take him out quickly
enough.
“Jack’s drone team now fell under the
suits at the agency and State Department
instead of the Department of Defense,”
Velicovich writes. “So he had to convince
them to move on the target. But his request
to strike that night passed from empty suit
to suit as he watched [al-Baghdadi] at the
house.”
Jack even called his bosses several times
that night, pleading his case. But it took a
week to get approval for the mission. By
then, al-Baghdadi was long gone.
Velicovich has since left the military, using his expertise to launch Dronepire, a
company that uses drones for animal conservation and humanitarian efforts.
“It had taken a long time . . . to realize
drones didn’t only have to be about counter-terrorism and killing bad guys,” he
writes. “I had the power to use drones for
more important things than war.”

five-alarm fire broke out
in his owner’s apartment
building.
“My dog is still up
there!” Melissa Dibbs

building at 60 E. 9th St.
Dibbs, 36, was one of
several residents scrambling to save their fourlegged friends after the
blaze broke out at about
5:45 p.m., according to
FDNY officials.
Luckily, every canine
appeared to make it out
alive thanks to the efforts
of New York’s Bravest.
“I’m so thankful and

begged first responders to
let her run back in to retrieve her pup, Finnegan.

By EMILY SAUL and RUTH BROWN
If you thought potential jurors had
nasty things to say about “Pharma
Bro” Martin Shkreli, wait until you
hear what the accused swindler’s
own lawyer had to say!
As the trial finally got underway in
Brooklyn federal court Wednesday
afternoon — after 2¹/₂ days of struggling to find jurors who don’t already
have a strong negative opinion of
Shkreli (above) — defense lawyer
Benjamin Brafman implored the
panel to look past his “weird” client’s
“dysfunctional personality.”
“Ignore the current that, God
bless, Martin Shkreli creates wherever he goes. You may not like Martin Shkreli, you may have reasons to
hate Martin Shkreli, but that is not
reason to convict,” the attorney bellowed in his opening statements.
Shkreli — infamous for jacking up
the price of an AIDS drug by 5,000
percent when he ran Turing Pharmaceuticals — is on trial for allegedly
running an $11 million Ponzi scheme
to pay off debts during his tenure at
pharma firm Retrophin.
There can’t possibly be 2 of him
It was the tale of two Martin Shkrelis in Brooklyn federal court
Wednesday — as one tried to find a juror who didn’t hate his guts
while the other was charged with laundering $800,000 in purported drug proceeds.
Martin Shkreli — who is not related to the 34-year-old “Pharma
Bro” currently on trial for securities fraud — was among nine
charged in the operation that also netted marijuana and various
weapons originating from Kosovo.
The 59-year-old Shkreli in the money-laundering case has yet to
be arrested. Also charged is Dilber Kukic, the general contractor
charged with manslaughter in the 2015 East Village building explosion.
Lia Eustachewich and Alex Taylor
But Brafman claimed Shkreli, 34,
was thrown under the bus by “thug”
board members who questioned his
sexuality and called him “rain man”
after he came to work “in bunny
slippers and wearing a stethoscope.”
“He was not what they thought a
CEO should look like. These people
wanted him to blow up. They
wrapped him in oil-soaked rags hoping someone would throw a match,”
he said as Shkreli grinned.
Shkreli faces up to 20 years in
prison if convicted of using Retrophin’s money to pay off investors
stiffed by his former hedge fund.
But the Brooklyn native couldn’t
hide his trademark smirk as Brafman served up a series of back-hand
compliments to the “mad scientist,”
claiming any money he transferred
was done with the board’s knowledge.
“The question isn’t going to be
whether Martin Shkreli is nuts, it’s
going to be if the case is nuts. People
are going to come in and begrudgingly admit he made them millions,”
Brafman said as his client grinned
and puffed out his chest.
And Shkreli’s face lit up even
brighter when prosecutor G. Karthik Srinivasan countered that he
was no “Wall Street genius” — just a
“con man.”
“[Shkreli’s successes] were built
and sold on lies. He was lying to get
investors’ money and he was stealing from public funds,” Srinivasan
said in his opening statement.
For their part, the jurors just
looked exhausted after days of questioning as lawyers tossed an eyepopping 302 prospective peers —
many because they offered scathing
opinions of Shkreli.
“In this case, the only thing I’d be
impartial about is which prison he
goes to,” one candidate told the
judge Wednesday morning.
The lawyers finally settled on
seven women and five men — plus
six alternates — including a female
pharmacist who works in a hospital
and three people with accounting
degrees.
‘Killer’ dad’s Rikers beating nets his kids 165G
An ex-con charged with
killing his estranged wife on
a Coney Island sidewalk
last month was awarded
$165,000 from the city over
a 2012 beating by guards at
Rikers Island, according to
court papers.
But he won’t personally
profit from the cash.
The city has agreed to set-
tle a Manhattan federal suit
with Gabino Genao, 30,
over the beating, although
the ex-con is back in jail after being charged with gunning down his wife, Iveliss
Alvarado-Genao, at a family
gathering.
Under terms of the deal,
the money will go straight
into trusts for the children
of Genao and his dead wife.
Half of the money will go
to the two children of Alvarado-Genao, who recently had fled to Maryland to escape her abusive
husband.
The other half will go to
Genao’s daughter with another woman.
In 2014, Genao sued the
city over a beating he suffered that led to indictments sought by the Bronx
DA’s Office.
The attack, which took
place while Genao was
handcuffed, was so brutal, it
rendered him unconscious,
he claimed. The three correction officers involved
pleaded guilty and were
sentenced to probation.
“The city settled this litigation on the express condition that the children receive all the proceeds . . . a
fair resolution that takes
into account the unique circumstances of this case,” a
spokesman for the city Law
Department said.

Viral teen guilty of
theft and more
By TAMAR LAPIN
DAME / BACKGRID
The teen who made a
name for herself with the
catchphrase “Cash me outside” pleaded guilty to several
charges in a Florida juvenile
court Wednesday.
Danielle Bregoli Peskowitz, 14,
copped to charges including grand
theft, marijuana possession and
filing a false police report, which
stemmed from an incident predating her 2016 appearance on the
“Dr. Phil” show, where her catchphrase, “Cash me outside, how
bout dah?” went viral.
The teen and her mother, Barbara Bregoli, were flanked by two
bodyguards as they exited the
courtroom in Delray Beach, according to local station WPBF.
On different occasions last year,
Danielle was accused of stealing
her mother’s purse, her mother’s
car and falsely reporting to police
that her mother was using heroin
by spreading powdered sugar on a
bathroom counter and describing
it to cops, according to WSB-TV in
Atlanta. This year, Bregoli was
found in a car with marijuana.
Her father, Ira Peskowitz, was
also in court and asked the judge to
restrict his daughter’s Internet access. The judge denied the request.
“My daughter is being exploited,”
Peskowitz said after court, adding
that he feared Danielle was being

“As a city, we stand with

Walsh said at the memorial.

Peskowitz is fighting for custody
of his daughter, who lives in California with her mother.
The teen and her mother were
banned for life from Spirit Airlines
after beating a female passenger on a
flight out of Los Angeles in February.
Palm Beach County Police also
investigated an altercation outside
a bar in late February where one of
Danielle’s friends hurled ice cream
at a woman for suggesting Danielle was out past her curfew.
Earlier this month, Danielle, her
mother and their company, Dani B
Holdings LLC, filled a trademark
lawsuit against developers of apps
bearing the teen’s catchphrase.
Danielle’s “summer tour,” which
was devised despite her not having
any known talents as an entertainer,
was recently postponed indefinitely.
The teen became famous following her appearance in a “Dr. Phil”
segment called “I Want to Give Up
My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding,
Twerking 13-year-old Daughter
Who Tried to Frame Me For A
Crime,” where she uttered her
seemingly incoherent catch phrase.
That appearance resulted in a massive social-media following, sponsored-content deals and a reported
TV deal for the controversial teen,
who’s due back in court next month.

He was arraigned later in

Boy locks self in hot trunk
A 6-year-old Oregon boy
was hospitalized Wednesday in critical condition after he locked himself inside
a car trunk on a hot day.
The child’s parents found
him in the trunk Tuesday
after they discovered he
was missing and searched
for him, the Medford Police
Department said in a release. The boy was flown by
helicopter to Oregon Health
& Science University Hospital in Portland.
Temperatures in Medford,
about 275 miles south of
Portland, reached 90 degrees Tuesday. It wasn’t immediately known how long
the boy was in the trunk.
Police said it appeared the
youngster locked himself in
the trunk by accident.
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department referred
calls to the Medford police.
Medford police spokesman Lt. Mike Budreau did
not immediately return a
call seeking more details on
Wednesday.

Con sues for
dole on parole
By JULIA MARSH
This is rich.
The son half of a
‘‘Mommy and Clyde’’ duo
that embezzled $16 million to buy luxury goods,
including fur coats and
Movado watches, is suing
the parole board for his
release — so he can apply
for government handouts.
“So what are your
plans?” Parole Commissioner Ellen Evans Alexander asked Joseph Del
Galdo at the Woodbourne Correctional Facility on Feb. 14.
“My plans are to go
onto disability,” Del
Galdo, 52, replied.
He suffers from panic
disorder, depression and
agoraphobia, according
to a transcript of the parole-board interview.
During the Q&A, Del
Galdo also blamed the
crime on his mom, Judy,
EMPIRE OF
EMPIRE

QATAR
who siphoned off funds
from her employers at
Hi-Fashion Fabrics and
Timeless Treasures Fabrics, and deposited them
into an account for a
dummy company. Her
son was the sole signatory on that account.
When pressed by Alexander, Del Galdo admitted that he lived a “rich,
lavish” life off the ill-gotten gains from 2003
through 2010.
But instead of getting a
job once he’s released,
Del Galdo said he
planned to use the Social
Security payments to
cover child support he
owes his ex-wife.
The board blocked Del
Galdo’s parole bid the
next day.
In his self-filed suit
challenging the denial,
Del Galdo demonstrated
what the board called his
“shallow remorse.”
The top of the Empire State Building was lit in Qatar Airways’ colors Tuesday to recognize the carrier’s 10th anniversary of flying to the United States. The airline is the state flag carrier of Qatar, a small, energy­rich nation at the center of a diplomatic crisis with other Arab nations. The dispute has seen countries cut diplomatic ties to Qatar, as well as block air-travel routes. Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund in August bought a 9.9 percent stake in the company that owns the Empire State Building. AP

OD save the United States
and this honorable court.”
Even with all the cynicism in our politics, that
prayer is still the traditional announcement of the opening of a
session of the highest court in
our land.
And it’s starting to look like
one good deed begets another.
The Supreme Court under
Chief Justice John Roberts is
well on its way to becoming a
historic champion of religious
freedom.
That is the outlook after justices on Monday blocked Missouri from denying a grant for
safe playgrounds to a church
school. The subsidy, for paving
playgrounds with recycled
tires, had nothing to do with religion.
The case won’t secure the reputation of the Roberts court in a
fell swoop. Not the way, say,
Brown v. Board of Education secured the reputation of the court
led by Chief Justice Earl Warren.
The long legal battle for religious freedom has been taking
place in small-to-medium sized
legal skirmishes all over the
country. With the
Missouri case, the
hugeness of the
SETH
trend is starting
LIPSKY
to become clear.
The “Show Me”
state, the court ruled, can’t discriminate against religious people by denying them the non-religious support everyone else
gets. It would violate the free exercise clause of the First Amendment, the court ruled.
It also would have turned
Christians — and those who
choose to go to other religious
schools — into second-class citizens. So more than playground
paving was on the line in Missouri.
The court ruled by a solid majority of seven to two. The only
dissenters were Justices Sonia
Sotomayor, who seems to grow
angry at the idea of unfettered
religious practice, and the constitutional crabapple Ruth Bader
Ginsburg. (Only a few months
ago, Ginsburg joked that were
Donald Trump elected president
she’d quit America for New Zealand. She probably didn’t know
that the head of state in New
Zealand must swear he is a Protestant.)
Trinity Lutheran, in any event,
Step by step: A display in support of a religious-liberty petitioner at
the Supreme Court, which ruled in favor of a church school Monday.
would be a satisfying case in and
of itself. But it’s part of a string
of cases in which the Roberts
court has vindicated religious
Americans — often by astonishing majorities.
The trend began to emerge in
2012, when the court blocked
federal authorities from trying
to apply equalemployment law
to the hiring of
church ministers.
That case, known as HosannaTabor v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, was
unanimous.
Several key cases followed. In
one, the court ruled that the upstate town of Greece was within
its rights to permit volunteer
chaplains to open town meetings
with a prayer. The New York
Times editorial board nearly
fainted.
Then came the Hobby Lobby
case. That’s where the court exempted the religious owners of a
closely held retail chain of craft
stores from the contraceptive
mandate that was put into effect
by the Department of Health and
Human Services after ObamaCare’s passage.
That puzzler divided the court
five to four — and infuriated the
godless left. That’s because it
seemed to suggest that a capitalistic corporation could have religious views, as if the family owners didn’t matter.
The court’s secularist wing
buckled, though, before the Lit-
tle Sisters of the Poor. The
doughty nuns who care for the
elderly poor finally won their
right not to be entangled in the
birth-control mandate in a unanimous ruling by the nine.
What was President Barack
Obama thinking? Someday historians will try to divine how
much the Democrats were damaged at the polls by their wholly
gratuitous attempt to bully a
charity named Little Sisters of
the Poor.
Not that the fight is over. The
court flinched last year from
hearing the appeal of a Washington-state pharmacist, Greg Stormans, seeking shelter under the
First Amendment against the
state’s attempt to force him to
sell an abortion drug.
The same day the court ruled
for Trinity Lutheran, though, it
agreed to hear the case of the
wedding-cake baker, Jack Phillips, under fire from the Orwellian Colorado Civil Rights
Commission for refusing to bake
a cake for a same-sex marriage.
Must such a religious person
choose between God and Colorado?
It’s hard to predict how the
court will rule in that case,
which will be heard in the fall.
It’s not hard, though, to forecast
that if the justices do rule for the
rights of the religious baker, they
will extend a remarkable trend.
And answer the prayer to God
for the salvation of their honorable court.
Lipsky@nysun.com
An unnamed top Obama administration official told The Washington
Post “we choked” on handling reports of Russian election meddling. But
Eli Lake at Bloomberg says the admission “isn’t entirely fair.” Besides, the
bigger question is why Vladimir Putin “thought he could get away with
this interference in the first place.” The reason, he suggests, is that Barack
Obama “spent the first six years of his presidency turning a blind eye to
Russian aggression” as he “pursued a policy of ‘reset.’ ” Throughout his
presidency, Obama “failed to respond to Russian cheating on arms-control agreements,” afraid of being seen as “a throwback to the Cold War.”
Having “probed American resolve for years” and found it lacking, “it’s
easy to understand why Putin would believe he had a free shot.”
Mideast watch: Abbas Fears He’s Losing His State
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas “is expressing concern” that he hasn’t heard President Trump or any of his emissaries “utter
the words ‘Palestinian state,’ ” reports Yoni Ben-Menachem at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. That’s because Abbas
still insists that the only basis for the “serious peace
deal” Trump wants is a Palestinian state along the 1967
lines. For him, “statehood and east Jerusalem are Palestinian ‘red lines’ that he is unwilling and unable to
surrender,” so Abbas “knows he has a serious problem.” He reportedly fears Trump will offer “expanded
autonomy in the West Bank gift-wrapped with a presidential regime, government, parliament and embassies
around the world,” but with Israel controlling security.
He now regrets having rejected the sweeping deal
Mahmoud Abbas then-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert offered in 2008.
Conservative take: Why US Schools Continue To Fail
Most industries improve each year – but not education, complains John
Stossel at Fox News, who recommends a new PBS documentary, “School
Inc.,” that examines the problem. The education establishment blames insufficient funding, even though America’s schools “spend more per student than any country.” And new technology and methods haven’t helped
— leaving US education “stuck in the era of disco and leisure suits.” The
problem: “Most schools are controlled by government. Government is a
monopoly, and monopolies resist change.” Fact is, if industries “don’t
adopt better ways of doing things, [they] go out of business. That forces
innovation. But government-run schools never go out of business” — so
the education establishment “has no incentive to try something new.”
Editors: Participation Trophies in the Military?
At the Army’s Fort Jackson in South Carolina, Chief of Staff Gen. Mark
Milley “recently handed out for the first time certificates of graduation to
recruits who completed basic training.” Fortunately, say the editors of
The Weekly Standard, they didn’t also hand out ribbons for learning to
march and finding the mess hall. But they wonder “what kind of message
the Army is sending here” — after all, “it’s called ‘basic’ training for a reason.” The Army insists it’s a move to “welcome recruits to the community
of soldiers” and isn’t “given to just anyone.” But “giving awards for the
most commonplace of military accomplishments still smacks of lowering
standards.” And “if you have to say an award isn’t a dreaded Participation
Trophy, it probably is.”
— Compiled by Eric Fettmann

Conservative critics are right that the Senate GOP replacement bill
“doesn’t go nearly far enough to lower health insurance premiums,” says
Robert L. Pollock at Real Clear Politics. So he suggests adding “simple
language” to create “an Optional Federal Charter for health insurance
regulation.” Health care remains so expensive because “there are so many
legally mandated benefits that must be covered.” Under the OFC, “there
would be no coverage mandates and no rules governing the shape of policies such as limits on deductibles and co-pays. Insurers could still be required to cover those with pre-existing conditions and subsidies could
still be offered to help those who need them.” Consumers “would simply
be offered a new choice: purchase a state-regulated policy or a federally
regulated policy.” This would also fix the problem of “ObamaCare markets with only one or no insurance options.”

It’s On
aul Massey’s surprise withdrawal from
the mayoral race clears Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis’ way to the
Republican nomination and a vigorous
challenge to Mayor de Blasio’s re-election.
A primary fight is usually a good thing,
toughening up the eventual winner for the final faceoff. If Massey had done nothing else,
his early entry got the beat-de Blasio ball rolling — and, when Malliotakis jumped in despite his initially impressive fund-raising, she
proved she won’t shy away from a fight.
Of course, he did do more. She’d do well to
steal from the position papers his campaign
rolled out. And, in our sitdown the other
day, the real-estate entrepreneur showed
he’d made real strides in gaining the very
different skills of a candidate.
But he still has a businessman’s eye for the
bottom line: In pulling out, Massey said he
didn’t “see a path to raising the necessary
funds to beat an incumbent mayor.”
He didn’t need to mention that this incumbent has spent most of his time in office
building a large campaign war chest and a
huge “favor bank” — by selling access to City
Hall and showering public resources on all
those he expects to help in the future.

CUNY’s Latest Gravy Train
ity University is facing probes into its
spending. Its operating funds are flat. Tuition’s headed up. Gov. Cuomo has demanded reforms. Yet on Monday, the CUNY
board hiked salaries for top brass.
No joke: As The Post’s Carl Campanile reported, presidents, veeps, deans and others
at CUNY colleges will see pay bumps of up
to 10.4 percent. That echoes the 10.4 raises
faculty got last year.
Presidents’ top pay jumps to $402,700 as of
Saturday, up from $371,460. And while the cap
for CUNY’s chancellor was held to “only”
$724,470, the upper limit for the executive vice
chancellor soars to $490,707, from $452,640.
Fine, the hikes are part of a regular fiveyear salary review. But pay was already astronomical for an urban public university.
K
Malliotakis will have to wage the same uphill fight, but she’s already shown the skill to
help neutralize that advantage. She wasn’t
just right to call out de Blasio for failing to
go to — or even talk about — Tuesday’s Atrain derailment, she was smart to say what
most New Yorkers were thinking.
Just as she’d slammed him days before for
sauntering off to feed his national ambitions
in Miami Beach over the weekend, even as
mayoral control of the schools hangs in the
balance.
The Republican has developed a spot-on
critique of the mayor’s failings, from his
deadly mismanagement to his self-indulgent
national politicking to his naked abuse of his
office to serve his selfish political ends.
Not to mention his ideological obsessions
— which, as Reps. Dan Donovan and Peter
King note on the opposite page, are now endangering the NYPD’s anti-terror funding.
In short, Malliotakis knows what angers
New Yorkers most about this mayor: the
sense that he only truly cares about himself
and his abstract agenda, and doesn’t even
try to work at solving the real problems of
the real New York.
It’s going to be a fun race.
Public service isn’t supposed to be about
charging what the market will bear. (Joe
Lhota just took the thankless job of MTA
boss for all of $1 a year.)
One excuse for the hikes: College presidents no longer get extra “off-the-books” pay
that some received via CUNY foundations.
That’s one reform after state Inspector General Catherine Leahy Scott exposed shoddy
financial oversight and amid a federal probe
into possible corruption by ex-City College
President Lisa Coico and others.
Rather than let its top dogs endure a loss
in pay, the board is boosting their salaries,
with taxpayer cash instead of private funds.
But with students, taxpayers and classroom spending all being squeezed, the folks
at the top should share in the sacrifice.
Porkapalooza
eep your hand on your wallet: The Legislature is back in session, and lawmakers
are addicted to doling out taxpayer cash
to their pet causes — while wiping away
their fingerprints.
As the Empire Center for Public Policy
noted last week, the state Senate and Assembly managed to funnel $52 million to
“hand-picked recipients” — via 1,782 porkbarrel projects — in the waning hours of the
normal legislative session.
Among the eyebrow-raisers:

$500,000 for a solar-powered carousel in
Buffalo (bringing its cumulative state subsidy to date to over $1 million).

Another $500,000 for “military base retention and research efforts” went to Clinton County (which has no military bases).

$21,000 for the Saratoga Automobile
Museum. (That’s right: a car museum.)

$15,000 for the Sea Cliff Chamber Players, a music ensemble on Long Island.
Who’s to blame? That’s a secret: None of the
public documents name the lawmakers requesting the grants. Nor, mostly, even a reason.
And the state doesn’t even have the cash
for these gifts. Instead, it has to borrow, saddling taxpayers of the future.
OK, some grants (say, for libraries or
schools) might be justifiable. But then, why
not funnel it through the regular budget,
rather than in a shadowy process with no
debate or vote on individual items?
This time, the outrage totaled $52 million
— on top of $385 million in secret pork in
the state budget back in April.
A special session may have fewer risks of
another porkapalooza — but beware.

It’s a cruel irony that security concerns over criminal undocumented
immigrants have been given as a rationale for a bill that disembowels
the anti-terror apparatus in the
world’s top terror target.
Take the Urban Areas Security
Initiative, one of the many grant
programs on the chopping block. It
provided New York City with $180
million in anti-terror funding last
year alone. The NYPD and FDNY
used that money for groundbreaking initiatives like the Domain

troves of data, including cameras
and license-plate readers, to track
real-time threats and respond immediately to life-threatening situations. The initiative also pays for
bomb-sniffing dogs and active

Another initiative, the Transit

critical transportation hubs from
terror threats. This isn’t a hypothetical — last year, a would-be

Dems’ Silly Play To Scapegoat Obama
D
EMOCRATS are angry — and this time
it isn’t at President Trump. Instead,
they’re fuming over revelations about
the Obama administration’s decision
not to go public last August with information about Russia’s attempts to intervene in
the US presidential election.
As one former Obama official told The
Washington Post, “I feel like we sort of
choked.”
But the real problem here is not so much
Barack Obama’s failure to act as the most
plausible reason for his inaction: Vladimir
Putin’s capers didn’t impact the election results.
Many on the left think that, regardless
of whether Republicans colluded with
Moscow — a charge for which there is
still no proof — the Russians stole the
election from Hillary Clinton. As The
Washington Post breathlessly wrote, the
Russian hacking was “the political crime
of the century.”
That’s why Obama’s decision not to publicize the crime frustrates the left. They think
he threw away a golden opportunity to ensure that Trump — the alleged beneficiary
geous and deserved a strong US response,
of Putin’s scheme — would be defeated.

It’s true that Russia’s actions were outra- family or the release of the infamous “Ac-

If Clinton wound up losing anyway, it

something that didn’t happen — there was

has become a disturbing game of

Cities shouldn’t be able to pick

New York City is shameless in its
unwillingness to cooperate with

and it should be held accountable
for its actions.
Some reasonable consequences
might include withholding Department of Justice grants intended to
help City Hall enforce immigration
laws. After all, it doesn’t make
much sense to give enforcement
money to a city that doesn’t do
much enforcing.
And the city hasn’t made many
friends in Washington with its inyour-face response to the Trump
administration’s (quite reasonable)
demand that New York comply
with the law of the land. Particularly galling is that city taxpayers
might foot the legal bills for violent criminals trying to avoid deportation.
But the bill we’re voting on this

dangerous extreme. It would make

New York Post, Thursday, June 29, 2017
National Insecurity
Every week, there’s a new terror
attack or threat against the West.
The NYPD has its own intelligence-analysis division with assets
deployed across the world, and
much of this work is funded by
federal anti-terror grants.
There have been 199 ISIS-linked
plots to attack the West or Western
targets since 2013, 21 of them in the
first months of 2017 alone. In New
York City, anti-terror officials have
thwarted 25 attacks since 2001.
Most worryingly, there have
been 39 homegrown-jihadist cases
in 20 states in the past 12 months.
Lone-attacker scenarios are notoriously difficult to predict; oftentimes, authorities have no hint of
them until they’re in progress.
Such attacks require immediate,
forceful, coordinated responses to
minimize loss of life. These highly
choreographed operations demand intensive training, which is
also funded in part by federal antiterror grants.
It’s unsettling to have to make
the public case against eliminating
federal anti-terror initiatives for
New York City. When lives are at
stake — and the events nearly 16
years ago in New York make it
tragically clear that they indeed
are — political calculations must
take a back seat to common sense.
US authorities have to be hypervigilant now more than ever. De
Blasio’s sanctuary-city policies are
wrongheaded, but security for innocent New Yorkers, cops, firefighters and first responders
shouldn’t be jeopardized because
of it.

You’re declarer at today’s grand

preemptive. When you leaped to five
spades, North appreciated the value
of his queens in your suits and his
aces. To succeed, you must pick up
the diamonds. Before you rely on a
3-2 break (or the fall of a singleton
jack), do some investigation. Who
knows what you may find?
You take dummy’s ace of hearts
and draw trumps. Next, cash the K-A
of clubs and ruff a club. On the
second club, West discards a heart.
West started with two spades and
one club, and if he had six hearts as
his preempt suggests, then he had
four diamonds. If you have the
courage of your convictions, lead the
ten of diamonds next and let it ride.
When East follows with the eight
(whew!), you take the queen, return
to your hand by ruffing a heart and
win the rest with good diamonds.

THE SITTING ZUCK
AT&T-Time Warner deal clouds CNN boss’ future
By CLAIRE ATKINSON
and EMILY SMITH
AT&T will look to “neutralize” CNN President Jeff
Zucker after it buys Time Warner, The Post has learned.
The buzz from the telecommunications giant comes as
CNN is being slammed for
highly publicized missteps —
including botched reports
tied to the federal probe of
possible collusion between
President Trump’s campaign
and Russia, according to three
sources familiar with the
thinking of AT&T brass.
The missteps, which also
include a profane anti-Trump
tweet by Reza Aslan, a CNN
host, have made CNN too polarizing an asset for execs at
the blue chip company, a
source said.
Aslan saw his CNN show,
“Believer,” get canceled in the
wake of the tweet.
The $85 billion acquisition
of CNN parent Time Warner
by AT&T could win antitrust
approval by the Justice Department in the next 60 days,
sources said.
“There was early talk about
the way Zucker managed that
wasn’t a good fit for the new
organization,” one source
said. “They were eyeing ways
to neutralize him.”
That desire leaves Zucker
facing an uncertain future that
includes the possibility of getting unceremoniously dumped,
one source said.

Stephenson (left) is

parent,

Other potential scenarios
include AT&T kicking the
52-year-old executive upstairs with a corporate title
that strips him of any power
over CNN — or a sale of the
network that would let
AT&T wash its hands of any
future messes.
“The news business doesn’t
seem to be central to AT&T’s
content strategy,” said Craig
Moffett, a co-founder of independent media research firm
MoffettNathanson.
“They
seem much more interested in
the entertainment brands. If

ulators happy, they’ll sell it. I
can’t imagine AT&T would let
CNN stand in the way of securing approval for the
merger.”
Zucker could also cash out
his significant holdings of
Time Warner stock and walk
away from the network filthy
rich, media execs said.
AT&T, when asked Wednesday about Zucker’s future at
CNN, seemed to dodge the
question.
“We value all of Time Warner’s assets and strongly believe that the combination of
our two companies will help
ignite a new wave of innovation in media and entertainment,” Larry Solomon, SVP
of corporate communications
at AT&T, told The Post in a
statement.
Of course, AT&T would
have to wait until the deal
closes to make any personnel
moves.
If AT&T idles Zucker, it will
be shunting aside an executive who more than doubled
operating profits, to roughly
$1 billion, over his tenure and
just produced one of its highest-rated first quarters ever.
At the same time, CNN, according to second-quarter
data released by Nielsen on
Wednesday, slipped to third
place among total viewers in
both full-day and primetime
periods.
CNN was No. 2 in the coveted demographic of ages 25 to
49 in full day — but was third
in primetime in that demo.
“What would be the reason
to fire him?” one CNN insider
asked, adding AT&T would
risk losing credibility and perhaps top news talent.
Reps at Time Warner declined to comment.

Blue Apron forced to place IPO on diet
By LISA FICKENSCHER
The planned Amazon-Whole Foods
merger is spoiling Blue Apron’s big
day.
The online meal-kit company took
a butcher’s knife to its valuation on
Wednesday when it repriced the 30
million common shares that will be
sold in its upcoming initial public offering to $10 — down from its earlier
expected range of $15 to $17.
Its new valuation, $1.9 billion, is a
third smaller than the $3.2 billion total it sought in earlier regulatory filings.
The decline reflects investors’ concerns about Blue Apron’s future in a
Amazon-Whole Foods world.
“With Amazon’s expertise in logistics and delivery, Whole Foods could
wipe out Blue Apron and all of its
peers if it wanted to,” said David
Tawil of Maglan Capital, adding that
Blue Apron and Whole Foods already
have overlapping customer bases in
urban and affluent areas.
Blue Apron’s high marketing costs
have also been a concern for investors. Despite doubling its revenue to
$795.4 million last year, the company
still posted a net loss of $54.9 million
as it poured money into logistics and
marketing.
Founded in 2012, the Soho-based
company delivers ingredients and
recipes that allow customers to prepare meals at home. It’s among a fastgrowing segment that includes Hell-
oFresh, Plated, Home Chef, Sun Basket and Chef’d — all looking for more
cash to expand their operations.
Green Chef, a player in the same industry, recently said it was looking to
raise at least $50 million, after already
having snagged $67 million.
Blue Apron has selected Goldman
Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and
Barclays to launch its IPO.
The stock is scheduled to debut on
Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker APRN.

All 34 banks pass Fed stress test
By KEVIN DUGAN
Big banks passed the Federal Reserve’s annual stress
test of their financial health
— and responded with a
giveaway to investors worth
billions of dollars in the
form of dividends and share
buybacks.
The passing grades mark
the first time since the Wall
Street crisis of 2008 that all
34 tested firms were
deemed healthy enough to
survive a major financial
disaster.
The stress test, known as
the Comprehensive Capital
Analysis and Review, means
banks are deemed to have
enough money to avoid a
Lehman Brothers-like failure
during a hypothetical meltdown.
“I’m pleased that the
CCAR process has motivated all of the largest banks
to achieve healthy capital
levels and most to substantially improve their capital-

All major banks passed the Fed’s stress test
for the first time since the financial crisis.
planning processes,” Fed
Gov. Jerome Powell said in a
statement.
The one bank that stumbled this year was Capital
One, which was given until
the end of the year to resub-
mit stronger plans. Still, the
Fed conditionally approved
its offer to pay out shareholders.
The biggest winners were
Banco Santander, which
flunked three consecutive
tests, and Deutsche Bank,
which failed the past two
years.
Overall, the 34 banks are
holding onto $1.25 trillion in
capital cushions as of the
first quarter — more than
double they held in 2009.
A passing grade gives
banks the flexibility to return more money to investors.
JPMorgan Chase announced a 6-cent dividend
hike, to 56 cents, and $19.4
billion in stock buybacks.
Bank of America boosted its
dividend by 60 percent, to 12
cents a share, with another
$12 billion in share repurchases.
Citigroup
announced $18.9 billion in buybacks and dividends over the
next four quarters.
Investors had anticipated
positive results, sending financial stocks up, with BofA,
which rose 2.6 percent, to
$23.88, leading the charge

Hulu said to be
near HBO deal
EXCLUSIVE
By CLAIRE ATKINSON
HBO is in late-stage talks
to provide content for Hulu,
The Post has learned.
Hulu, which offers TV and
movies alongside a live TV
service, is owned by TwentyFirst Century Fox, Disney and
Comcast.
The streamer is negotiating
to offer the premium pay-TV
channel just ahead of season
seven of the red-hot series
“Game of Thrones,” which
launches July 16.
Hulu, which is home to
original hits like “Handmaid’s Tale,” already offers
CBS-owned Showtime.
The proposed deal, if finalized, would be one of many
HBO has signed to turbocharge its online distribution
on top of its traditional distribution via cable operators
and telecom and satellite operators.
The Time Warner-owned
channel has about 2.4 million
online-only subscribers.
HBO also is available via
Amazon, DirecTVNow and
Sony PlayStation Vue, as
well as independently via
HBO Now. It also sells its
online service in conjunction with a pay-TV subscription.
Time Warner reps declined to comment.

Commuter hell may toast real estate investors
JOHN
CRUDELE
OMMUTERS coming into New
York City from the north, south,
C
east and west are irate.
The Long Island Railroad, New Jersey Transit, Amtrak and Metro North
— not to mention the New York City
subway, which moves 5.7 million people every weekday — have all been
plagued by dramatic breakdowns and
crashes over the past few months.
And as angry as all those commuters are, there is another group of people who should be even more livid —
only they don’t know it yet.
That group consists of real estate
developers and New York City building owners. And I will give you my
prediction of what will happen if the
commuting nightmare isn’t straightened out very soon.
As I type this column on Wednesday afternoon, there are 387 new
buildings under construction in Manhattan. According to the New York
City Department of Buildings, that
will add 95.7 million square feet of
new space to Manhattan’s already
massive real estate inventory.
When you include construction in
the Bronx (380 buildings), Brooklyn
(1,625 buildings), Queens (1,251 buildings) and Staten Island (713 buildings), the city as a whole will add 225.6
million square feet of new space.
So how is this real estate boom connected with the problems commuters
are having? Easy: The attractiveness
of telecommuting is going to increase.
Telecommuting is one way to alleviate the mass transit disaster now affecting the Greater New York area —
and has been promoted recently by
MTA Executive Director Ronnie Hakim, who suggested to employers
that they allow workers to come into
the office during off-peak hours to
make a “long, hot summer” a bit more
bearable.
And the problem for all those people who own commercial properties
or are building new structures is that
the idea of telecommuting makes a
whole lot of sense with technology
being as advanced today as it is.
Full disclosure: I work at home as
often as I can. And there is no loss of
productivity. In fact, I get more done
when I work in my office at home than
I do in a newsroom. And I’m not the
only one at The Post who telecommutes.
The cost of renting office space in
Manhattan is already falling, although
years of double-digit gains have made
space here among the most expensive
in the world.
Anecdotal evidence is that businesses are being offered nice incentives from landlords to sign long-term
leases. And rents may get even more
squishy when that additional 95.7 million square feet of space hits the market.
The Buildings Department couldn’t
give me details on how much of the
construction is commercial, retail or
residential. So there’s no way of
knowing how much new office space
there will soon be.
But considering that most of the
buildings going up at the massive
Hudson Yards project — the biggest
in the city — on the far west side of
Manhattan are designated for office
space, that’s going to be the market affected the most.
There are probably bosses reading
this column who are thinking: What if
I let 10 percent of my staff work from
home? Or what if I let my staff work
from home 10 percent of the time?
Even a 1 percent increase in telecommuting might make real estate
developers say ouch.
And smart bosses may even figure
that employees would be willing to
accept lower pay for the conve-
nience of telecommuting.
So, here’s what I think: The people
who are paying for all those fancy new
buildings might want to “encourage”
city and state officials to fix the transit
problems sooner than soon.
If telecommuting becomes the
bona fide trend in Manhattan, there
are going to be empty buildings and
unhappy investors.

President Trump seems to be
confirming something I wrote a couple of weeks ago — the White House
may be bugged.
When Trump finally admitted recently that he doesn’t have tapes of his

hinted that the US intelligence and
law enforcement officials might have
his office bugged.
I mentioned in a column recently that

RKA accused Mnuchin and

Mayer doubts pal Travis fostered Uber bro culture
By RICHARD MORGAN
Marissa Mayer said she is
“friends” with Travis Kalanick, defending Uber’s ex-chief executive
against critics who say he presided
over a toxic frat-boy scene at the
ride-hailing giant.
Kalanick has been accused of encouraging a “bro culture” at the
company, stealing trade secrets, fostering an environment of sexual harassment and permitting the use of
illegal software to evade transportation authorities.
Yet to hear it from Mayer — who
recently has been rumored as a potential candidate to replace Kalanick
as Uber’s next CEO — the guy’s not
to blame.
“I just don’t think he knew,” Mayer
said Tuesday at the annual Stanford
Directors’ College, a forum to help
boards of directors deal with crises.
“When your company scales that
quickly, it’s hard,” she said.
That’s something Mayer — who
this month stepped down as Yahoo
CEO with a $260 million golden
parachute — knows from experience.
After two major data hacks on her
watch, Yahoo admitted in a regulatory filing that “certain senior executives did not properly comprehend
or investigate” the mess.
During her Stanford talk, Mayer
called Kalanick “one of my friends”
and said Uber is “ridiculously interesting.”
The digital diva even likened
Uber’s situation to her pre-Yahoo
years at Google, when Eric Schmidt
took over from co-founders Larry
Page and Sergey Brin to provide
what temporary CEO Schmidt called
“day-to-day adult supervision.”
But at least they got supervision.
For Uber, it took nearly 50 recommendations — generated by a fourmonth investigation by former US
Attorney General Eric Holder — for
its board to swing into action.
After several false starts out the
door, Kalanick was finally pushed to
the curb by five investors. The enduring image from his tenure is a recent video of him dressing down an
Uber driver.
Other candidates that Uber is said
to be chasing to replace Kalanick are
also female, including Facebook’s
Sheryl Sandberg and CVS exec Helena Foulkes.

A bankruptcy judge has
given Gawker Media permission to subpoena venture capitalist Peter Thiel
about his relationship with

lawsuit that proved to be
the publisher’s undoing.
Judge Stuart Bernstein of
the US Bankruptcy Court
in Manhattan has ruled
that Gawker has established cause for examining
Thiel’s relationship with
the lawyer, Charles Harder.
Gawker seeks evidence,
if any exists, that Thiel
conspired with Harder to
destroy the media company, which could be used
to build a lawsuit against
the billionaire venture capitalist.
However, Gawker’s inquiry will be limited significantly by the settlement
the company signed last

The agreement prohibits

Walmart is escalating its
war of words with Amazon
by sending veiled messages
to the trucking companies
that haul its merchandise
from its distribution centers and stores, telling them
if they do business with the
Web giant it may not want
to work with them, according to an industry expert.
“I know that Walmart
has expressed its views to
truckload carriers,” transportation consultant Satish
Jindel told The Post.
“Walmart would prefer to
do business with carriers
that are not doing business
with Amazon,” and are not
“conflicted” because it’s
concerned about their ability to handle high volumes
of deliveries during peak
times, Jindel says.
Walmart began having
these conversations with
carriers over the past 30
days or so, according to Jindel, who talked directly
with those carriers and
who also spoke at a logistics conference this week
about the issue.
His comments were
picked up by Deutsche
Bank analyst Amit Mehrotra, who wrote a note
about it, and by DC Velocity, a trade publication covering logistics.
“These developments, if
true, are likely to have significant implications for
US transportation companies as Amazon and Walmart remain two of the
largest users of truckload
capacity,” Mehrotra wrote.
The trucking squeeze
comes on the heels of reports last week that Walmart
asked technology companies
with which it works to stop
using Amazon Web Services
for the retailer’s cloud-computing services — or face
losing Walmart’s business.

companies to use services

HEN Tinder first
launched in 2012,
a beautiful greeneyed New Yorker
who works in public relations flew
out to California
to stay with the
company’s co-founder Sean Rad during
a business trip for the dating app.
Apparently, Rad wanted a bit more
pleasure with his business — she
learned after the fact.
“Unbeknownst to me, he lied about
hooking up with me and made up
an elaborate story, which he told to
valuable business contacts of mine,”
says the now 30-something, who had
even sent Rad a gift basket filled with
Momofuku baked goods as a thank you
for his hospitality.
“Trust me, that’s the only way I
thanked him,” she said. “I had zero
idea he said any of this until years later,
and was absolutely shocked. I guess
he thought he should get whatever he
wanted now that he was an ‘important’
tech bro.” (Rad’s rep had no comment
when reached by The Post.)
Rad’s behavior is par for the course
nowadays for a group of techies who
have seemingly transformed from

Miranda Kerr and whose
hacked Stanford frat e-mails
had the touching sign-off:
“f--kbitchesgetleid.”
One of the biggest offenders is Uber co-founder
Travis Kalanick.
Last week, he resigned as
CEO amid a string of scandals. Among the outrages? A
2014 visit to an escort bar in
Seoul, South Korea, with five
Uber employees, and a 2013
e-mail sent to staff during a
Miami work outing where
Kalanick advised his underlings not to have sex with

they have responded with an
emphatic ‘Yes! I will have sex
with you’ AND b) the two
(or more) of you do not work
in the same chain of command. Ye s, that means that
Travis will be celibate on this
trip. #CEOLife #FML.”
So it’s no surprise that
women are disenchanted
with tech dudes.
When Deborah, a 32-yearold who works at a media
company in NYC, agreed to
a date with a techie she met
on JSwipe, a Jewish singles
dating app, she was excited
— they both grew up in the
same area and went to a Big
10 school.
“Almost immediately he
explained how he was the
[chief operating officer] of a
startup with offices throughout the country, managed a
huge team of people and
worked with clients across
the globe , meaning long
hours and calls during all
hours of the night. He was
very busy and very important,” said Deborah, who declined to give her last name
for professional reasons.
They weren’t even
through their first round of
drinks when the COO
grabbed his phone, said he
had to take a call and walked
down the block.
Fifteen minutes later, he
was still on the call.

home. About a half-hour
later I received a text from
my date saying something
along the lines of, ‘My bad?
Taking the call was rude but
necessary.’ My response:
‘No, just rude.’”
Michelle Frankel, a professional matchmaker in Manhattan, says a lot of newly
rich (or paper-rich) startup
honchos are still figuring out
how to navigate their new
baller status.

some basic Courtship 101.
“But just because they are
extremely intelligent and
making tons of money, it
doesn’t mean they have emotional intelligence. A lot of
them don’t know how to
date,” she says.
Frankel says a common
problem is techies coming
on too strong too quickly, a
result, sometimes, of misguided dating advice.
“I’ve actually heard of a
lot of these tech guys taking
these pickup classes, which
don’t work,” she says. “Just
because you go on a first
date, [it] doesn’t mean a
woman wants to be groped
at a restaurant and made
out with.”
One woman who moved
from NYC to San Francisco
says We st Coast techies
suffer from “Peter Pan Syndrome.”
“They live in Never Never
Land and they are not incentivized to settle down until
they are financially stable.
But out here, the threshold
for that is crazy high,” says
the NYC transplant, who
works in finance.
“They all have the dream
that they will be the ne xt
founder of Warby Parker,
and that keeps them thinking they shouldn’t make a
commitment to anything so
they can devote themselves
to work.”
The former New Yorker
says her boyfriend of six
months, with whom she recently traveled to South Africa, unceremoniously
dumped her on the phone
when he got a plum gig at a
new startup in Austin, Te xas.
“He kept the ne ws of the
job all to himself until he
knew he had the offer, and
then said he didn’t ‘view us
[as] long-term.’
“I’ve seen countless times
when tech guys post online
in their dating profile that
they are looking for ‘high energy, low drama,’” says the
finance lady.

neatly in their life sounds
great. But otherwise,
they’re out.”

EW Yorkers aren’t so unique when it
comes to what they whine about to
their shrinks.
Therapists here are listening to the
same complaints, visit after visit, from
neurotic locals overwhelmed by the
demands of life in the city.
“In New York, there’s an abnormally
high pressure to achieve, and an abnormally dense
population,” says Zachary
Alti, a therapist based in Midtown. “So New Yorkers may
experience higher-thanaverage anxiety levels.”
Here, local shrinks
share the most common complaints
driving anxious
residents to
their couches.
Abbie Sophia
A majority of Alti’s clients are struggling with
the stress of work and feelings of inadequacy,
which stem from competing with the country’s best and brightest. “[There are] a lot of
people coming in from all different professions
with a tremendous amount of stress, whether
it’s [from] toxic work environments, unrealistic
expectations from their bosses or just having
to be on-call all the time,” he says.
Everyone is image-obsessed
Clients tell psychologist Deborah Glasofer, who
has a Columbus Circle practice, that keeping up
with the “fad diet du jour” is driving them to
eating disorders and depression. “New York is
certainly home to a lot of industries that could
exacerbate this issue, but in this day and age of
social media, I don’t know that anyone anywhere is really immune to some of the unhelpful messages out there,” Glasofer says.
We can’t afford to break up
Couples that cohabit are likely to continue living together after the relationship runs its
course because they feel they can’t afford rent
on their own, says therapist Gracie Landes.
Landes, who is based in Chelsea, says she hears
this from couples about six or seven times a
year. Often, they’ll continue to live together
even after the breakup, she says. “If they can
reconfigure their relationship so they’re not
going to be miserable paying three times more
rent, they will stay put and find a way to get
along with this person.”
Burned out by 30
Millennials who are already burned out from
work are increasingly seeking help, Alti says.
Each month, he sees two or three new clients
who say they face unrealistic expectations for
early success. Clients as young as 30 already
feel they’re too old to compete, he adds. Psychotherapist Mona Browne, based on the Upper East Side, notes that millennials are constantly worried about their success in her office: “They feel like they should already have
their lives figured out, and they don’t.”
Working out our kinks
Obscure kinks and fantasies of polygamy come
up at least five times a week in the Midtown
offices of sex therapist Michael Aaron, who
recalls one man whose fantasy involved pretending his wife was a giant woman who
would trample him. “In New York, especially,
you’ll have people who are more cosmopolitan,
who are more aware of different options,” Aaron says. “They may realize, due to our culture,
that they no longer have to hide that shameful
fetish, but they need a third party who can help
foster discussion around it.”
Too many dating options
On a daily basis, Midtown-based therapist Christina Eller says her single patients complain about
the overwhelming amount of attention they’re
paying to online dating, with little to show for it in
terms of successful relationships. Eller says that
especially in New York, the sheer volume of options and messages is giving her patients “almost
an attention deficit of ‘Who should I respond to?
Is this person better than the next?’” And who
knows when those prospects will disappear altogether, Alti adds. Three to four patients a month
complain to Alti about being ghosted, which is
causing some serious trust issues, he says.

Jewish ‘Friends’ spotlights
Orthodox singles scene
I
By DOREE LEWAK
T’S the kosher version of
“Friends”: a We b series about
six 20-something, Upper
We st Side singles — Orthodox Jews — navigating their
way past irritating roommates, overbearing relatives
and technological mishaps.
That its main characters are a gallant young rabbi named David and
his crush, Sarah, an artist, makes
things more interesting.
Such is the world of “Soon by
You,” a dramedy whose fourth installment just aired on YouTube. It’s
the brainchild of Leah Gottfried, a
former child actress who grew up in
the Flatbush section of Brooklyn
and majored in film at Ye shiva University’s Stern College for Women.
Gottfried, who’s 26 and single,
says it wasn’t until she saw an Israeli
TV show about young Orthodox
professionals that she realized that
she had never before seen characters she could relate to.
“It dawned on me: There should
be something like this in New York,
because there’s so much material
here,” says Gottfried, who plays another Sarah in the show. “I kind of
created [it] because it was something I wanted to watch.”
Getting married in your early 20s
is par for the course in traditional
Orthodox circles, so being single in
the winter of your 20s can be an isolating experience.
“The pressure is the problem,”
says co-producer Jessica Schechter.
An Upper We st Sider for the past
five years — and an actress and co-
median — she’s 29 and single. “I
don’t know if I would have had my
professional accomplishments if I’d
been married.”
“Soon by You,” titled after a Jewish expression about being next up
at the altar — uh, chuppah — suggests that there’s more to life than
waiting for your bashert (Jewish
soulmate) to come along.
“We’re trying to flip the narrative
that you’re nothing until you get
married,” Schechter says. “Your
life’s already begun. You’re living it
every day.”
But the show does make for interesting first-date conversations.
“Some guys are excited about it,”
says Gottfried, who says it’s easy to
weed out noncontenders if they
don’t support her artistic endeavors.
True to its roots, the show’s storylines skew to such modern Orthodox dilemmas as: what to do when
the person you’re dating wants to
move to Israel, and how long to wait
before inviting someone for Shabbat dinner.
Co-writer and producer Danny
Hoffman, who also plays David, says
the show’s struggles are universal.
“This is the stereotype of Italians,
too: ‘Get married already!’” says
Hoffman, who’s 30, married and
lives in Washington Heights.
Since the show first launched in
spring 2016, fans — Jewish and not
— have made themselves clear,
Gottfried says.
“Everyone’s pressuring Sarah and
David to get married already,” she
says, laughing.
Typical Upper We st Side yentas.

Everyone’s BFF
By JANE RIDLEY
G
AYLE D’Angelo* worshiped the dazzling smile of her baby boy, Eli, and
was puzzled when a fellow mom at his
day care — a pediatrician — tactfully
suggested she take him to see a geneticist.
It turned out her 10-month-old son’s grin
was a marker for Williams syndrome,
which results in zero social inhibitions.
Indiscriminately trusting, people with Williams syndrome are unconditionally loving to
everyone they encounter. Yet this can leave
them vulnerable to abuse because they are
usually developmentally delayed and seeking
sensory input — even from strangers.
“Eli will greet and hug someone he’s just
met like a long-lost friend,” Gayle, 46, tells
The Post. “It sounds like a cute thing —
but now that he’s 18, it’s an issue.”
In 2011, the New England single mom invited medical journalist Jennifer Latson to
spend three years following Eli. The result
is Latson’s new book: “The Boy Who
Loved Too Much: A True Story of Pathological Friendliness” (Simon & Schuster).
“I wanted to . . . document coming of age
with Williams syndrome,” says Latson.
“How do parents stop sheltering a kid with
Williams — or do they ever?”
Gayle used to dread eating out because
Eli would always zoom over to the waitstaff.
But, with the help of a reward system for
less exuberant behavior, he has learned to
keep his impulses under control. Eli recently graduated from high school — where
he was mainstreamed — and will pursue a
school-to-work program until he is 21.
Meanwhile, in her book, Latson chronicles Eli’s first experience of summer camp
at the age of 13 in Michigan, where all the
campers had Williams syndrome.
“It was a wonderful place, and there was
a kind of understanding [among] the kids,”
says Gayle. “It was a safe place for Eli to
break free from the reins and be himself.”
*To protect their privacy, Gayle and Eli
D’Angelo are pseudonyms.

Small docks, shingle-clad homes
and working fishing boats typify the
low-key lifestyle on Fishers Island,
just off the coast of Connecticut.

FANTASY ISLAND
Tiny FISHERS ISLAND is the anti-Hamptons
where nature meets exclusivity
By TROY MCMULLEN
Peter M Weber (2)
Longtime Fishers resident Heather
Burnham outside her gift shop, the Beach
Plum, one of the island’s few retail spots.
M
OST New Yorkers
have never heard of
Fishers Island, the
under-the-radar
9-mile-long islet
wedged between
Connecticut’s shore and the
North Fork of Long Island.
And most locals on the
unspoiled island have typically liked it that way, preferring
instead to keep its bucolic
charm and empty beaches to
themselves.
The remote community is
home to a mere 250 year-round
residents. The only ferry serving Fishers Island operates out
of New London, Conn., nearly
a three hour’s drive or Amtrak
train ride from Manhattan.
But New Yorkers looking to
escape the swelling crowds and
rising home prices in places like
the Hamptons or Jersey Shore
this summer, may find Fishers
Island’s relaxed, laidback vibe the
perfect alternative.
With all the charm of Martha’s
Vineyard or Nantucket, Fishers
Island offers a rich history, scant
traffic and generally gentler
home prices compared to other
moneyed summer locations. And
after years of an extremely low
inventory of homes for sale, the
beachy enclave is seeing more
properties hit the market.
“It’s a fairly tight-knit community with an authentic small town
feel in summer,” says Jim Reid,
a real estate agent at Mystic Isle
Realty who has been selling and
renting homes on the island for
decades. Raised in Manhattan,
his parents started coming to
Fishers Island in the 1950s. His
father eventually moved for good
from the city in the mid 1970s and
started the real estate firm that
Reid runs today.
Though the island’s notoriously scant housing supply has
always been challenging for
second-home shoppers — there
are only about 650 homes in
total — it has about 25 homes
currently on the market, listing
data show. That’s a third more
than last summer, as sellers keen
to offload properties are bringing
them to market.
“We saw about 15 homes sell
last year as more people were

Fishers king
From ISLAND on Page 37
willing to lower asking prices,” says Reid. “That’s nearly
double the number we had
in the prior year.”
While many of the island’s
homes carry price tags in the
million dollar range, some
larger homes com packed
with amenities and can list
for more than twice that
amount.
Mystic Isle Realty is
currently selling a ninebedroom home on 3.99
acres for $3.25 million. The
Colonial Revival has direct
water frontage, a pool and
views “of” spanning from
Watch Hill, RI, to Montauk.
The firm is also selling a
four-bedroom waterfront
home on 1.3 acres for
$985,000. That single-level
house includes three bathrooms, a fireplace and a
large sunroom leading to the
backyard.
“Compared to the
Hamptons or Martha’s
Vineyard these prices are
still pretty inexpensive,”
Reid says.
Though only publicly
accessible from Connecticut
via ferry, Fishers Island actually belongs to New York
State. It is part of the town of
Southold in Suffolk County
on Long Island. Although its
core population is tiny, that
number swells to well over
2,000 during peak summer
weekends as throngs disembark on the island from
Connecticut.
Fishers’ history as an
exclusive summer sanctuary
dates back a century to when
it housed properties owned
by names such as du Pont,
Jim Reid of
Mystic Isle Realty
both lives — and sells
— Fishers Island. He
says there are currently
some 25 homes for
sale on the island.

Whitney, Roosevelt and
Luce. These days the island
is still inhabited by residents
who like their privacy, which
is underscored by its striking
lack of development —
though more recent summer
visitors have included folks
like Porter Goss, a former
CIA director, and author
Rick Moody, who wrote
“The Ice Storm.”
While Fishers Island
may ooze charm, it has few
commercial or recreation
amenities. There’s only
one bar — the Pequot Inn
— and no hotels or upscale
boutiques. The small town
center includes just three
gift stores, a liquor store and
an ice cream shop. There’s
also a small supermarket and
deli.
“It’s a precious island with
a strong sense of history,”
says island resident Heather
Burnham. She’s embarking
on her 20th summer on the
island running the Beach
Plum, a seasonal gift shop
inside an old firehouse that
sells everything from clothing and accessories to works
by local artists.
“It’s not like a lot of summer communities where
there are a bunch of places to
go,” she says with pride. “But
there’s never any traffic or
stress here.”
Sarah Malinowski and her
husband, Steve, have owned
the Fishers Island Oyster
Farm for more than 30 years.
The family-run company
sells its oysters directly to
customers and chefs, including Manhattan posh
restaurants such as Balthazar
and PJ Clarke’s.
“We live out here
year-round and love all
the seasons,” says Sarah.

Island in the summers since
childhood and eventually
moved into her family’s summer house in 1978. “Winters
can be a little rough, but
summers rival any place in
New England.”
With two private golf
clubs, a yacht club, and fishing for bass and bluefish,
the island is an easy sell as
a weekend getaway. Yet the
allure for many frugal New
Yorkers may be its palatable
home prices compared to
other oceanfront locations
outside of Manhattan.
“You’ll end up paying almost half what you
would for a home on the
Connecticut coast or on
the North Fork (of Long
Island),” says Nancy
Mesham, a broker at
Coldwell Banker in Old
Lyme, Conn., an affluent
shoreline village just across
Long Island Sound.
She estimates that many
homes on Fishers Island can
be had for a very reasonable
$400,000 to $700,000. “But
even at those prices you’ll
end up getting much more
for the money.”
The summer rental market on Fishers Island is also
more affordable than many
locations in the Hamptons.
Weekly rates in peak summer months typically
average $3,000 to $4,000 per
week for a home facing the
water — roughly half what
you’d pay for similar properties on the North and South
Fork, Reid says.
A five-bedroom home
on the water is currently
renting for $5,900 per week
by Mystic Isle Realty. That
property has a hot tub and
a large terrace overlooking
Long Island Sound.

go, and even what they will wear in case they
have an accident.”
And forget about making a fashion
statement, according to Dr. Seipel, “Black is the
color of choice, as it can hide evidence of public
accidents.”
But bladder control issues may now be
a thing of the past. That’s because a 100%
natural, drug-free aid developed by Dr. Seipel
and her team is now available. In the double
blind placebo control clinical trials published on
www.clinicaltrials.gov, the 150 patients
enrolled in this powerful clinical trial and who
took UriVarx™ for eight weeks experienced a
large and statistically significant reduction in
overactive bladder and urinary incontinence
symptoms.
The proprietary formulation called UriVarx
was clinically tested and proven to reduce incontinence, stress incontinence, urgency, frequency and nocturia (having to go at night).
Some participants even reported complete reversal of their nocturia within 2 weeks!
UriVarx… Users Rejoice!
Dr. Seipel’s formula has completely changed
the life of Brandy W., a 45 year-old mother of
three from Brisbane, CA.
Brandy stated, “I had a high bladder
frequency as a child, but my frequency really
worsened after the birth of my first child.”
After a friend told her about UriVarx, Brandy
decided to give it a try. “After 2 weeks, I already
noticed changes” said Brandy.
She went on to say, “I was fi
nding that
although I felt I needed to urinate, I wasn’t as
desperate to run to the toilet. Now, when I get
up in the morning, I’m able to make the coffee
and even have a cup before needing to go,
which is a great improvement!”
Amazing Clinical Results
Patients using UriVarx™ experience
all these benefits:
• Reduction in Urge Incontinence
• Reduction in Stress Incontinence
• Reduction in Urinary Urgency
• Reduction in Urinary Frequency
• Reduction in Nocturia (bedtime
episodes)
Patients started seeing results
in as little as 2 weeks.
How Does It Work?
“UriVarx helps support bladder health by
revitalizing bladder tone and function and by
helping support kidney health”, says Dr. Seipel.
“The active ingredients promote normal
urinary frequency and they reduce urgency,
nocturia and those embarrassing accidents,”
adds Dr. Seipel.
“The compound invigorates the tone of
the bladder wall, assisting a healthy level of
firmness by enhancing the bladder’s muscular
elasticity. This reduces the frequent urge to
urinate,” Dr. Seipel explains.
Positive and Strong
Clinical Studies
This natural drug-free blend recently
shocked the medical community with its
overwhelmingly positive results in a new
published clinical study.
Study participants were randomized and
assigned to either a treatment group or a
placebo group at two separate facilities. Both
groups were monitored for a variety of bladder
symptoms at week two, four and eight during
the 2-month study.
At the end of the study, those receiving
UriVarx showed significant improvements in
all symptoms, including day frequency, night
frequency and urgency. And what was even
more impressive were the quality of life improvements the test subjects experienced. A
full 84% of those taking UriVarx said “Yes!” to
the question... “Have you had any benefit from
your treatment?” Compared to only 18% of the
placebo group.
Results like these are not surprising to Dr.
Seipel who single-handedly pioneered the
bladder care category in the early 2000’s,
receiving an award for her work from the
prestigious U.S. Nutrition Business Journal.
The patented
formula consists of a
proprietary blend of select, synergistically
paired botanicals. All chosen because of their
ability to support healthy urinary and kidney
function, maintain the health of the urinary
tract and improve bladder tone. Dr. Seipel
searched for over 15 years to find the perfect
nutrients for her blend.
International Decrease
In Adult Diaper Use
“Over-active bladder syndrome is a widely
spread problem,” says Dr. Seipel. Many of the
individuals are forced to wear adult diapers.
And insiders in the adult diaper market are
keeping a close eye on Dr. Seipel’s research.
They don’t want to lose their good customers
like 78 year-old retired teacher Glenda B.
Glenda wore adult diapers every day to
guard against accidents. “My bladder capacity
was good, but the leakage and the accidents
would occur without warning. So I wore them
every day,” confessed Glenda.
Since Glenda discovered Dr. Seipel’s Bladder
Control formula, you won’t find her shopping
in the adult diaper section of the store anymore.
“After only two months on UriVarx, I
reduced my need to wear my diapers. Now I
manage very well, thank you,” says Glenda.
And Glenda’s results are similar to many in
a recent study. In fact, of those who reported
using adult diapers at the beginning of the
study 75% of them no longer needed them
after just 8 weeks, compared to only 5% of the
placebo group.
Enlarged Prostate or Bladder Issues?
Symptoms of an overactive bladder can
mimic those caused by an enlarged prostate,
confusing many men. Dr. Seipel explains,
“Prostate enlargement restricts urine flow. The
bladder compensates for this by trying harder
and harder to push urine out.” As pressure
in the bladder increases, so do instances of
urinary urgency and frequency. Long after
prostate issues are handled, many men still
experience the same symptoms, thanks to their
now overactive bladder.

NEW YORK, NY – Frequent, uncontrollable
urination is no laughing matter. Add it to all of
the other stresses in life and it can be nothing
short of a nightmare.
That helpless feeling of your bladder bursting
and the worry of not making it to the bathroom
in time can be absolutely terrifying.
The loss of dignity and the fear and
embarrassment of “not making it” creates one
of the most difficult health problems, you’ll
ever deal with.
But you’re not alone with your bladder
issues. According to The National Institute of
Health, as many as 33 million Americans are
affected by bladder control problems, exactly
like those described above.
New York Post, Thursday, June 29, 2017
A clinically proven and patented breakthrough, now available in the U.S. without a prescription…
Finally a clinically proven pill solution to
ease all your bladder problems.
Great Results Whether
You’re a Man or a Woman
“Because male and female bladders, other
than size are identical,” says D. Seipel, “The
formula works equally well for both men and
women.”
“It’s a his-and-hers formula, “she grins. David
M., a 46 year old male can attest to this. “I was
having to go to the toilet every hour or so and I
had to go to the toilet at least four times per night.”
For weeks after starting UriVarx, David says,
“My trips to the toilet have definitely reduced
and I’m having much better sleep, getting up
maybe once per night.”
If you’re ready to alleviate the uncontrollable
urge to urinate, forcing you to make frantic trips
to the bathroom, and instead want the confidence
and security that a healthier bladder can bring to
your life, here’s your risk free opportunity.

The games would take place at MexMLB: Cubs waive Montero goodbye Spurs.
ico City’s Ciudad Mexico Arena in the first
Catcher Miguel Montero was designated
for assignment by the struggling Cubs on
Wednesday, one day after he blamed pitcher
Jake Arrieta for allowing seven stolen
bases in a game.
“Miggy is not to blame at all for the issues
we have as a team right now,” team president
Theo Epstein said. “He should not be a
scapegoat for what’s going on. This is just an
example of someone publicly not being a
good teammate and making comments that
weren’t accountable and supportive ... and
we had to act on it.”
 In Washington, Stephen Strasburg
struck out 13 in seven innings, Bryce
Harper had two doubles and two RBIs, and
the Nationals beat the Cubs 8-4. Chicago
third baseman Kris Bryant left in the bottom of the sixth with a right ankle injury.
 In Cleveland, Michael Brantley drove
in two runs and the Indians defeated the
Rangers 5-3 in Terry Francona's return.
Francona, 58, was cleared to come back after another health scare forced him to leave
Monday’s game and miss Tuesday’s contest.
He has been fitted with a heart monitor, but
said doctors have ruled out any serious
health issues.
HOOPS: Nets will play 2 in Mexico
The Nets reportedly will play a pair of regular-season “home” games in Mexico City
next season, facing both the Thunder and
week of December.
 A New Jersey Catholic school that was
ordered to rescind two sisters’ expulsions
amid the older sister’s legal battle to play on
a boys’ basketball team won’t allow them to
return next year.
NJ.com reported St. Theresa’s School in
Kenilworth rejected applications for next
school year from 13-year-old Sydney Phillips and her younger sister.
The girls were expelled this year after
their family sued. An appellate judge ordered the girls be allowed to return until a
court hearing. An archdiocese spokesman
said the private school is not required to accept anyone’s enrollment.
ETC.: Red Bulls advance in Open
All five Red Bulls players scored in a
shootout as they advanced in penalties, 5-3
over Philadelphia. Felipe buried the gamewinning penalty kick after the game was
deadlocked at 1-1 through regulation and extra time in the USOC Round of 16. The Red
Bulls were knocked out of the Open Cup in
each of the last two seasons by Philly.
The team also announced goalkeeper Luis
Robles signed a new long-term contract
with the Red Bulls.
 Two-time NBA champ Steph Curry
will use a sponsor’s exemption to play in the
Web.com Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic in Hayward, Calif., in August.

#" Rockets add Paul
to star backcourt
By JUSTIN TERRANOVA
The first shocker of the
NBA offseason — outside
of the circus at Madison
Square Garden — comes
before free agency even
begins.
Chris Paul was traded
from the Clippers to the
Rockets on Wednesday
morning, forming an AllStar backcourt in Houston.
Paul alerted Clippers
management he would be
signing with Houston as a
free agent, then opted into
the final year of his contract in order to be dealt to
the Rockets.
Houston sent promising
forward Sam Dekker, point
guards Patrick Beverley
and Lou Williams and their
2018 first-round pick to the
Clippers in exchange for
the future Hall of Famer.
The Clippers are blowing
up their core, with Blake
Griffin now likely to depart in free agency as the
Rockets try to position
themselves as the primary
threat to the Warriors in
the Western Conference.
The combination of MVP
runner-up James Harden,
who reportedly pushed for
the move, and Paul will be
interesting to watch. The
32-year-old Paul is notoriously competitive and hard
on teammates; Harden has
a more laid-back demeanor.
Harden also will relinquish the ball-handling duties he took over last season and thrived in under
first-year
coach
Mike
D’Antoni. Despite Paul’s
impressive résumé, he has
yet to advance past the
second round of the playoffs in his 12 years with
New Orleans and the Clippers.

distance. Franco to ensure the speedy gelding secures good position after drawing the
rail. RECTIFY Given a shot in the Affirmed Success but wilted down the lane. Handy front
running winner with optionals earlier in the year. Carmouche subs for J Ortiz who gets
back aboard TAKAFUL for McLaughlin. An 8 length victor sprinting at 1st asking he was
aimed for the triple crown chase but never fired in the Jerome/Fountain of Youth. Moves
off the graded stakes trail and turns back to a sprint. TOGA CHALLENGER and POP THE

tackles winners if surface is switched. TRUTH led the way in her seasonal with this brand

Good to go on the turf today. GRAND BANKS chased the pace while parked wide
and walked home last of 7 in her latest. Only ³/₄ shy last time she raced this distance.
Moves lower; gets J Ortiz back. GRANDE BESO kicked late for 3rd last 2 tries on the grass
at this level. Lineup contains little speed so Irad will have to keep her close. Blinkers off.
LAUREL LANE made turf debut at this height and ran to her odds of 114-1 after taking the
overland route. Sprint to route for Linda Fisher. Incorporating in deep exotics with PRIMA
ATTRICE who was only ³/₄ back of Grande Beso.

Afternoon Delight for Stitches
This train wreck was caused by “human error.” The “A”
train jumped off the tracks on Tuesday. A day later Phil
Jackson, conductor of the Dolan Express for three years,
was derailed. The Zen Master, who said not long ago that
Carmelo would be better off somewhere else and that Porzingis is on the block, is first out the MSG door. Takes his 11
rings, triangular bible and 80-166 record in his three full
seasons as Knicks president with him. Not sure if Carmelo
is next but James Dolan, the worldwide leader in “human
errors,” may be readying his next miscue. “Get Isiah
Thomas on the phone!”
Sit down! The Indians’ Corey Kluber sent 13 Twins back to
the dugout last week. Struck out a baker’s dozen in seven
innings work. Hasn’t yielded an earned run in 21 straight
frames. Hoping the streak continues this afternoon against
the Rangers. 10 units on the Tribe.
Let’s Go Matz! Tossed a seven-inning shutout in Miami last
night. Curtis Granderson went deep again and the Mets won
a laugher 8-0. Sweetened our account to 1,759 koosmans

OFF D MARKET
Rangers shore up need,
re-sign defenseman Smith
By BRETT CYRGALIS
With quite a few open
spots on the Rangers’ back
end, they didn’t want to let
Brendan Smith hit the open
market and lose him to the
highest bidder.
The Blueshirts agreed to
terms Wednesday with the
rugged 28-year-old defenseman on a four-year, $17.4
million deal, carrying an annual salary-cap hit of $4.35
million. The deal also carries some no-trade coverage, according to Smith’s
agent, Anton Thun.
Smith came over from the
Red Wings at the 2017 trade
deadline in exchange for a
third-round pick. As a lefty,
he showed an ability to play
the right side — which the
Rangers desperately need.
He also showed a physical
edge and snarl in his game
that was lacking on the roster.
The right side of the
Rangers blue line still is in
question after the club
bought out the remaining
Blueshirts lost to the Senators in the second round.
“Kind of just go about it like
that. It’s tough. It’s my first
option to do this, and I’m just
going to see how things go.”
This gives general manager Jeff Gorton a little easier handle on the free-agent
market, which opens Saturday. Working with about $15
million of salary-cap space
— with Klein still on the
books — Gorton still has to
sign restricted free agents
Mika Zibanejad and Jesper
Fast, both of whom hold arbitration rights. Gorton
made it seem at the draft
this past weekend he wants
to get Fast’s deal done
sooner rather than later. He
might wait to see how the
market shakes out before
signing Zibanejad.

MIAMI — After consulting
with Mets teammates who
have incurred similar hand
injuries, Michael Conforto
decided the best option was
to proceed slowly in returning to action.
The Mets outfielder remained sidelined Wednesday
with a bruised left hand — he
was hit by a pitch three days
earlier — and unavailable to
hit against the Marlins. He
was hardly missed in the
Mets’ 8-0 win.
Loud and clear, Conforto
received a message from the
team’s training staff and players such as Travis d’Arnaud
and Brandon Nimmo, who
have dealt with similar issues,
that rushing to return could
affect his swing.
“I don’t want to have anything mess with my swing
and then get away from
what’s working,” Conforto
said. “It’s frustrating. When
you get the good news it’s not
broken, I just want to get back
in there.”

of casualties Wednesday,
placed on the 10-day DL with
a strained left hamstring, an
injury he sustained running

Gsellman joined Noah

and Zack Wheeler among
the team’s starting pitchers on
the DL. In addition, Steven
Matz and Seth Lugo were
on the DL for the first twoplus months of the season.
Wheeler is scheduled to
throw a bullpen session
Thursday and would start
this weekend at Citi Field
against the Phillies if there is
no discomfort in his right
arm. The right-hander was
placed on the DL last week
with right biceps tendinitis.
Rafael Montero will take
Gsellman’s spot in the rotation.

NYCFC look to
keep momentum
By ZACH BRAZILLER
New York City FC’s first
ever road win over the rival
Red Bulls on Saturday was
significant, important for
the standings and imperative for the belief that is developing within the club.
But now comes an even
bigger test: Avoiding a letdown when also-ran Minnesota United FC visits
Yankee Stadium on Thursday night.
“The challenge is to see if
we can play two games with
the same intensity in a row,”
head coach Patrick Vieira
said. “If we don’t have the
same concentration and focus that we had against Red
Bulls, we will not have any
chance of winning against
Minnesota.”
NYCFC (9-5-3, 30 points),
third in the Eastern Conference, is riding a three-game
winning streak and fourmatch unbeaten run. Their
attack has been on point,
scoring two goals in each of
the last four matches. Star
striker David Villa has led
the attack, with a pair of
DAVID VILLA
Leading attack for NYCFC.
goals and two assists, with
help from impressive young
winger Jack Harrison and
the return of midfielder
Yangel Herrera.
The back line, coming off
the shutout of the Red Bulls,
will need to be at its best
against Minnesota (5-9-3, 18
points) striker Christian
Ramirez, who has scored
nine goals.

Mets ‘understand’ Darling’s
Amazin’ injury frustrations
By DAN MARTIN
MIAMI — Ron Darling
isn’t the only one fed up
watching Mets get hurt.
“When injuries happen,
people get frustrated,” assistant general manager John
Ricco said Wednesday, a day
after Robert Gsellman became the latest Mets player
to go down with an injury.
“Fans, front office, people
around the team. So … I understand the frustration.”
Gsellman went on the 10day DL with a strained left
hamstring and the Mets have
now lost six starting pitchers
to injuries this season.
And though Ricco said the
organization is constantly
evaluating its training protocols, no major changes are in
the works.
“It’s easy to start painting a
broad brush as to the reasons,” Ricco said. “You get
frustrated, but as an organization, we have to take a logical approach to it. We have
a lot of confidence in the
guys on the medical side. As
a team, they’re as good a
group as there is.”
Given the dire results, especially this season, that’s
debatable.
Even Ricco acknowledged
the reality that the Mets
have seen a significant number of key players go down.
“You look at the quality of
guys we’ve lost, it’s gonna be
a topic,” Ricco said. “We
want to see our best players
out on the field. When you
see a number of them hurt,
it’s a valid question.”
It is one Darling, the exMet and current SNY analyst, asked after watching
Gsellman pull up as he ran
to first base in Tuesday’s
game against the Marlins.
“You know, if baseball —
and I’m not talking about the
Mets — if baseball at some
point doesn’t get these newbie trainers and get them in
a room with some of the old
trainers and people that took
care of baseball players and
how to keep them healthy
and get them in a room and
try to tap into some of their
knowledge of how you train
baseball players — not
weight lifters, not six-pack
wearers — baseball players,
they’re doing a disservice to
their million-dollar athletes
that they’re paying,” Darling
said on the broadcast. “It’s a
joke to watch this each and
every night.”
Not surprisingly, Darling’s
comments garnered plenty
of attention.
Asked by The Post on
Wednesday to expound on
his comments, Darling reiterated it was a baseball-wide
problem and not one that the
Mets alone were dealing
with. He also insisted he
wasn’t knocking Mike Barwis, the organizations’ advisor of strength and conditioning, who works with players
in the offseason and during
the spring at the team’s facility in Port St. Lucie.
“Of course not,” Darling
said. “I don’t even know the
guy. I would never call out
someone I don’t know. I’m
just saying that, considering a
lot of the old-timers, whether
it’s [Jim] Kaat, [Nolan] Ryan,
the ability to do baseball
things was very important.”

IT’S WHAT WE DO.
By PAUL SCHWARTZ
A youngster asked for a
picture with Steve Spagnuolo, and when the Giants’ defensive coordinator
obliged, the kid not only
was appreciative for the
photo op, but also something else.
“Thanks for making our
defense better,’’ the young
boy said.
Spagnuolo smiled.
“I do think it’s important,
no matter what level you’re
coaching at, especially as
you climb the ladder, you
make sure you go back at
some point and give back,’’
Spagnuolo said Wednesday
afternoon at the Big Daddy
Youth Football Camp at
New Hyde Park (L.I.) Memorial High School.
Spagnuolo in his second
go-round running the Giants’ defense gave back
plenty in 2016, as his unit allowed just 284 points (an
average of 17.8 per game) —
only the Patriots gave up
fewer points. Nine of the 11
starters return, and even the
ever-cautious Spagnuolo
admitted this excites him.
“I’d be lying if I didn’t say
yes,’’ he said.
Spagnuolo also would be
lying if he denied feeling a
measure of vindication. After his ultra-successful twoyear stint (2007-08) running the Giants’ defense —
winning a Super Bowl in
his first season — he was
brought back in 2015 to fix a
broken defense. The results
were ghastly — Spagnuolo’s severely undermanned unit gave up more

than 26 points a game.
Money was spent on an infusion of talent, and last
season the Giants gave up
138 fewer points than the
year before.
Spagnuolo once again
proved his system worked.
“It’s funny, I didn’t feel it
in the middle of the season,
because all you’re doing is
grinding and as soon as one
game’s over, if it happened
to be a good one, it’s just
onto the next one,’’ Spagnuolo said.
“It wasn’t until the season was over ... then we
had a chance to take a
deep breath, yeah, it did

feel good. I just believed
in what we were doing, I
believed in the guys, I believed that was gonna happen. We’ve had a lot of
success in this system in
Year 2. It’s always been
like that, every time I’ve
done it.’’
Now it is Year 3 and expectations are high, so high
that the Giants can set as a
goal attaining top-defensein-the-league status.
“Listen, the first year I
was here in 2015, I didn’t really know what we had, JPP
had the accident,’’ Spagnuolo said, alluding to Jason Pierre-Paul’s fireworks
mishap. “Last year, we really didn’t know, because
we brought in a lot of new
people. This is the first year
in the three years I’ve been
here you feel comfortable.
... It doesn’t guarantee success but I think if we stay
healthy we’ll be OK.’’
Spagnuolo battled traffic
to attend the camp on Long
Island because of his
friendship with Rich “Big
Daddy’’ Salgado, president
of Coastal Advisors LLC Insurance Consultants.
Victor Cruz was back in
New Jersey on Wednesday,
working with many of the
same children with whom
he has spent previous summers.
To so many of the kids at
the Victor Cruz Foundation
Football Exhibition and
Skills Challenge, at Union
City High School, the Paterson, N.J., native remains a local hero, even if he no longer
is with the hometown team.
Even if it still seems impossible for many to
imagine the receiver in
anything but blue.
“The [kids are] like,
‘Why’d you leave, man?’ ”
said Cruz, who signed a
one-year deal with the
Bears on May 25, after being cut by the Giants in
February. “I was like, ‘I
wish it was my choice. It
wasn’t up to me.’ … I’m getting half, ‘Why’d you
leave?’ and half, ‘How’s
Chicago?’ So, I’ll take it.”
As recently as last month,
Cruz wasn’t taking his release so well, having accused the Giants of purposefully not giving him the
ball when he was open last
season to keep his statistics
down so the organization
wouldn’t be criticized when
it cut the 30-year-old, which
saved the team $7.5 million
against the salary cap.
Playing in his first full
season since 2013, the oft-
injured receiver made 39
catches for 586 yards and
one touchdown last year.
Cruz caught an average of
80 passes for 1,209 yards
in his first three seasons
(2011-13), but that came before his injuries or the arrival of Odell Beckham Jr.
Cruz opted against expounding on his conspiracy theory Wednesday, and
said he hasn’t had talked
with anyone in the Giants’
organization — other than
former teammates — since
making his comments. The
Giants denied any plot
against Cruz.
“I don’t know what their
plans [were],” Cruz said of
Giants management.

“Tyler Austin’s hammy

Girardi said “it’s possible’’ when asked about

CHICAGO — Injuries often
lead to excuses, but the reality
of certain situations is they are
legitimate reasons clubs fall
apart when several key players
get hurt.
And while every team in baseball deals with injuries what the
Yankees experienced between
Sunday and Wednesday morning borders on crippling.
On Wednesday before the
Yankees’ 12-3 win over the
White Sox, they put designated
hitter Matt Holliday on the 10day disabled list retroactive to
Sunday and sent him to New
York with what they believe is a
viral infection. The move followed second baseman Starlin
Castro going on the DL with a
Grade 1 strained right hamstring on Tuesday. On Sunday,
outfielder Aaron Hicks landed
on the shelf with a right oblique
muscle problem.
Hicks was the No. 2 hitter in
the Yankees’ batting order, Holliday their No. 4 and Castro No.
5 and the team leader in hits
(92). That’s a lot of bats being
deleted from a lineup that
started Austin Romine at first,
Ronald Torreyes at second, Tyler Wade in left field and
Miguel Andujar in his first major league game at DH Wednesday night against White Sox
lefty Carlos Rodon.
On Wednesday night, Girardi
batted Aaron Judge second,
Didi Gregorius fourth and
Chase Headley fifth. It was the
first time Gregorius hit cleanup
and the second time Judge hit
second.
As for Holliday, the decision
to put him on the DL was an
easy one.
“We have not seen much improvement and the fatigue factor and not eating a lot. Even if
he did start to feel better it
would take three or four days to
start to get his strength back,’’
Girardi said.
The move is backdated to
Sunday since he last played Saturday.
“I guess he is going to have
more tests run. He probably has
lost a little weight,” Girardi said.
“They have an idea of what it
isn’t. They ruled out [mononucleosis] which is good because
that was a concern.’’
CHICAGO — Yankees
manager Joe Girardi insisted his talk with Gary
Sanchez in the dugout
during Wednesday night’s
victory over the White Sox
was instructional and not
a dressing down about the
catcher’s effort.
“He is really good at
what he does and he is
only going to get better,’’
Girardi said of Sanchez,
who failed to block a
third strike in the dirt to
Jose Abreu in the third
inning that allowed the
hitter to reach first base.
“I don’t have a problem
with his effort. I think he
plays hard and works
hard. Sometimes he
shows frustration and
that is something you got
to learn, too. When I
talked to Gary Sanchez it
was strictly tips on how
to block the ball.’’
As for Sanchez, who
went 0-for-5, hardly running to first base on a double-play grounder in the
fifth that was on Girardi’s
orders because Sanchez
has a lingering groin problem.
“I told him, ‘You got to
be smart. You are playing

Shutdown stuff finally returns
as young lefty stymies Marlins
By MIKE PUMA
MIAMI — Steven Matz had
pitched just badly enough for the
Mets to lose in his previous two
starts, but Wednesday night he left
little to chance.
Pounding the strike zone, Matz
enticed the Marlins into swinging.
The result was seven relatively
stress-free innings for the lefthander in an 8-0 Mets victory at
Marlins Park.
“I’m just letting them put the
ball in play,” Matz said. “I got a lot
of ground balls today.”
The Mets appreciated the strong
start from Matz a night after Robert Gsellman was removed in the
fourth inning with a strained left
hamstring. Gsellman was placed
on the disabled list Wednesday,
leaving the Mets without four
members of their rotation to start
the season: Noah Syndergaard,
Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler
are also sidelined.
With four victories in their last
five games, the Mets (35-42) have
shown life recently, but still face a
sizable challenge in trying to rebound into playoff contention.
It’s clear the Mets will need a
healthy Matz — to complement
Jacob deGrom atop the rotation —
if they are going to have a chance.
Another important piece, Seth
Lugo, will get the ball for Thursday’s series finale.
“We’ve got to get our pitching
going, because I don’t care what
anybody says: That is what it’s going to take in the heat of the summer to get back in this,” manager
Terry Collins said.
Matz (2-1) al-

lowed six hits and one walk with
four strikeouts over his seven
shutout innings. It came after consecutive lackluster starts against
the Nationals and Dodgers in
which Matz kept the Mets competitive, but didn’t receive the
support he needed from the
lineup and bullpen. Against the
Dodgers last Thursday, he walked
five batters over six innings.
Against the Nationals he had allowed three home runs.
“I walked the pitcher tonight,
but I felt that I had decent command of the zone,” Matz said.
Collins cited Matz’s daring nature on the mound.
“Because of his command he’s
not afraid to miss, and that’s the
key,”Collins said. “If he misses off
the plate he knows he can come
back on the plate, and that’s what
sets him apart.”
Curtis Granderson’s two-run
homer in the seventh gave the
Mets a 6-0 lead and ended any
lingering doubt about the outcome. Asdrubal Cabrera also
hit a two-run blast in the first
inning as the Mets continued a June barrage in
which they have homered
31 times in their last 16 games.
Granderson remains among the
hottest performers in the National
League. The 36-year-old outfielder entered batting .323 with
seven homers and 11 RBIs in 23
games this month.
“Sometimes you get some luck,
sometimes you don’t, and right
now I’m just getting
things to go my
way,” Granderson said.

INSIDE THE MATCHUPS
Cabrera takes 2nd
to rethink trade talk
New York Post, Thursday, June 29, 2017
vs. MARLINS
ON DECK
MIAMI — Maybe Asdrubal Cabrera’s days with
the Mets aren’t so numbered.
After Cabrera turned in
another solid performance
both at the plate and in the
field after his move from
shortstop to second base,
Cabrera backed off his request for a trade.
“I always want to be
here,” Cabrera told The
Post after the Mets beat the
Marlins, 8-0, on
Wednesday night
at Marlins Park.
“This is a great
team. In that moment when
I said that, I wasn’t saying I
want to get traded. I was
just saying it didn’t seem
like they had a plan for me.
… If they’ve got a plan, they
should tell me.”
Cabrera is still displeased
with the way the situation
was handled, when he
wasn’t told he’d be switching positions following his
return from the disabled
list.
When he came back in
San Francisco, Cabrera
made it clear he thought it
was time to leave the Mets.
“If they don’t have a plan
for me, I think it’s time to
make a move,” Cabrera said
on Friday after he was informed of the position
switch. “What I saw the last
couple of weeks, I don’t
think they have any plan for
me.”
Perhaps his improved
performance since coming
back has something to do
with his new attitude.
On Wednesday, he hit a
two-run homer in the first
inning off Miami left-

hander Jeff Locke and
added an infield single and
a walk. He left the game in
the eighth with cramping in
his legs, but neither Cabrera nor manager Terry
Collins believes it’s serious.
The 31-year-old also
flashed some leather at second, when he made a diving
stop to his right on Christian Yelich’s inning-ending
groundout in the bottom of
the first.
Collins dismissed the idea
that Cabrera should have
any difficulty playing second.
“He can play second
base,” Collins said with a
smile. “There’s no big adjustment. This guy’s a tremendous infielder and
[has] got great hands. I saw
him in Washington play
second base, so I knew he
could. … I hope he relaxes a
little bit and goes off on the
offensive side, because we
need his bat.”
Since he’s come back
from the sprained thumb,
Cabrera is 10-for-21 and has
four multi-hit games in his
last five.
More importantly, he is
no
longer
completely
averse to playing secondeven though he previously
stated that it might diminish his worth on the open
market if he becomes a free
agent after the season.
“I like this team a lot,” Cabrera said. “I’ll be fine with
playing second. I’m a professional player. I would
like to stay here at any position. I just felt like I didn’t
have good communication
with the team in that moment. Now we have to wait
and see what happens.”

Tebow sends another into heavens
By RYAN LAZO
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Tim Tebow was promoted to
High Single-A St. Lucie after posting
strong exit velocity readings.
Then Tebow went out and proved
him correct in his debut.
In the second inning, Tebow unloaded on a 3-1, 92-mph fastball from
Cardinals right-hander Junior
Fernandez, depositing it
over the center-field wall
for a two-run homer in
Game 2 as part of his
three-hit day during the
doubleheader.
“I felt good,” Tebow told
reporters. “Honestly, I felt
good the last couple of weeks in Columbia and tried to carry it over. Just put the
bat on the ball and hit it hard. I was just
thankful I could get one out tonight.”
Tebow’s performance — 3-for-5 with
the home run, two RBIs and a walk —
TIM TEBOW
Hulking home-run hitter.
even caught notice from an NL scout in
attendance.
“It was the best I’ve ever seen him,”
the scout said. “The home run was to almost straightaway center field that he
golfed out. At Columbia, he was taking a
lot of pitches and getting in bad counts.
He just seemed more comfortable.”
Making splashy debuts has become
commonplace for the former quarterback
who continues to rise to the occasion.
From his first game in instructional
league to his debut in Columbia, Tebow
has made a habit of belting home runs
in his debut. Yet, he has had trouble
continuing the trend past the first day.
Tebow has struggled mightily in his
first full season playing professional
baseball, hitting .230/.318/.352 with 70
strikeouts in 219 at-bats. But Tebow also
has hit four home runs, showcasing the
type of strength that made him enticing
after his showcase last year.
“Still has a long, leaky swing, but he
was more aggressive,” the scout said of
Tebow who snapped an 0-for-11 stretch
with his first hit of the day. “First ball
I’ve seen him hit with any power.”
Maybe Tebow deserved the promotion after all.

T
HE YANKEES currently
have the best rookie position player and pitcher in
the American League.
Aaron Judge and Jordan
Montgomery very well might
finish 1-2 in the Rookie of the
Year award voting if it were
held today — though Boston’s
Andrew Benintendi, Baltimore’s Trey Mancini and Seattle’s Mitch Haniger and Ben
Gamel (like Judge and Montgomery, also drafted by the
Yankees) would have arguments for second place.
Judge is arguably the best position player in the majors right
now (particularly with Mike
Trout on the disabled list).
Montgomery is the only AL
rookie starter even qualified for
the ERA title, and he ranks
ninth in the league (3.53).
Their excellence has been integral to the Yankees contending this year. But their presence
alone exhibits the organization’s shift toward youth.
The only two times in the
past quarter-century the Yankees had a rookie pitcher finish
with at least 14 starts (as many
as Montgomery has now) and a
rookie hitter finish with 318
plate appearances (Judge’s total
through Tuesday) were Ivan
Nova and Eduardo Nunez in
2011 and Ted Lilly and Alfonso
Soriano in 2001.
We still have a ways to go for
Judge and, especially, for Montgomery to qualify for the batting
title and ERA title, respectively.
Montgomery could have an innings cap of some kind the Yankees have yet to make public.
But should Judge reach 502
plate appearances and Montgomery reach 162 innings, they
would be the first duo to qualify for those respective titles on
the same Yankees team since
Jesse Hill and Vito Tamulis did
so for the 1935 club.
Let’s put that in perspective:
That was the first Yankees team
after they released a guy named
Babe Ruth. In his final Yankees
season, Ruth had started about
one-third of his games in left
field, which is where Hill
played the following year. That
was Hill’s lone season with the
Yankees. His greater fame came
when he returned to USC to become the first person to have
played and coached on a Rose
Bowl winner before he became
the school’s longtime athletic
director (1957-72), which included the Heisman Trophywinning season of O.J. Simpson.

Jordan

Yanks’ rooks best
young tandem in AL
That was also the final Yankees season for Tamulis, who
was kind of a lefty Adam Warren, bouncing between starting
pitcher and reliever in his career.
The Yankees obviously are
hoping for longer-running success for Judge/Montgomery
than they received from Hill/
Tamulis — perhaps something
more like shortstop Frankie
Crosetti and pitcher Johnny Allen, who were Yankees rookies
on the 1932 champs and had
sustained success.
But simply having a rookie
pitcher and hitter qualify for
the batting/ERA titles in the
same season is not common.
The last team to do so was the
2013 Marlins with Adeiny
Hechavarria and Jose Fernandez. The A’s did it the year before with Yoenis Cespedes and
Jarrod Parker.
The last time it was done with
just drafted players — as the
Yankees are doing now with
Judge and Montgomery — was
the 2006 Marlins with lefty
Scott Olsen and hitters Josh
Willingham, Dan Uggla and
Mike Jacobs (though Uggla was
drafted by the Diamondbacks
and Jacobs by the Mets). In ad-
dition, Hanley Ramirez actually
won the Rookie of the Year that
season as a Marlin — but he
originally had been an international signing by the Red Sox.
Uggla finished third in the
rookie voting, Marlins teammate Josh Johnson (who fell
just short of qualifying for the
ERA title) was fourth, and Olsen, Willingham and Anibal
Sanchez (who also fell short of
the ERA title) tied for ninth.
That Marlins team’s skipper
won NL Manager of the Year in
his only season with the franchise.
That was Joe Girardi.
Nats can’t
pin down
bullpen
SINCE the 2015 trade deadline, the
Nationals have tried to fix their annually worrisome bullpen by bringing in
the relievers ranked ninth all-time in
saves (Jonathan Papelbon), eighth
(Joe Nathan) and fourth (Francisco
Rodriguez).
The tenure of Papelbon, obtained
July 28, 2015, will be most remembered
for choking that year’s NL MVP, Bryce
Harper, in the dugout. He was released last Aug. 13 and never has signed
with another team.
Nathan was signed in January, released
near the end of spring training, resigned to a minor league deal in early
April and released at the end of May
without ever appearing for the Nationals. He likely is done as a major leaguer.
Rodriguez, who was released last
week by the Tigers with a 7.83 ERA and
nine homers allowed in 106 at-bats,
signed a minor league deal this week
with the Nationals.
Washington was tied with the Mets
for the NL’s worst bullpen ERA at 4.91.
It is the significant flaw in a team otherwise good enough to win a championship.
Minor moves
paying off
REASON for patience in baseball
No. 23,462:
Last season, Alfredo Simon had the
worst starter ERA (8.77) in the majors
(minimum 10 starts). The secondworst belonged to Luis Severino,
whose 8.50 ERA from the rotation was
the worst in Yankees history for at
least 10 starts — by nearly three-quarters of a run. Minnesota’s Jose Berrios had the majors’ third-worst ERA
(8.02) in 14 starts.
Both Berrios and Severino were demoted to the minors. Severino later returned successfully as a reliever, leading
many to insist he just be left in that role.
But here is the thing: Severino and
Berrios were born within three
months of each other in 1994. If you do
the math, that makes them 23. The
righties’ arsenals screamed starter —
big arms each equipped with wipeout
breaking balls — and their youth
yelled to let them try to stick in the rotation again.
This season, among pitchers with 60
innings, Berrios (2.98) is sixth in the
AL in ERA and Severino (3.15) is
eighth; Berrios (.577) is third in OPS
against and Severino (.615) is fifth.
In 2016, they were sent to the minors. In 2017, it is not inconceivable
they will be sent to Miami for the AllStar Game.

Three-game

INSIDE THE MATCHUPS
YANKEES: Cessa
has not won a start
since last Aug. 26
against the Orioles.
He has recorded
a loss in each of
his two starts this
season and has a
7.00 ERA despite
holding opponents
to a .235 batting
average.
WHITE SOX: Shields
has made just two
starts since April
after suffering a
right lat strain and
making his first
trip to the disabled
list in his career. In
those starts, Shields
has struggled,
posting a 9.35 ERA
and allowing a .359
average to opposing
hitters. In 32 career
starts against the
Yankees, Shields
is 11-16 with a 4.12
ERA. He earned the
win in his last start
on July 4, 2016 in
Chicago, allowing
two runs over six
innings.
STAT SO?
YANKEES: Brett
Gardner’s nine
seasons with at least
10 stolen bases rank
fourth in Yankees
history, behind Willie
Randolph, Roy White
and Derek Jeter.
WHITE SOX: Matt
Davidson had
homered in seven of
his previous 15 games
(seven HRs total)
before Wednesday’s
game. He had hit
seven of Chicago’s
previous 17 home runs
dating to the seventh
inning June 12 against
Baltimore.
By GEORGE A. KING III
CHICAGO — Their voices
bounced off the ocean of empty
seats in Guaranteed Rate Field’s
right field Wednesday night and
Aaron Judge had no trouble
hearing the chant that started
with his last name and ended
with a word that rhymes with
bucks and starts with an “S.”

“Tonight I heard them pretty
good because with the [rainy]
weather there weren’t that many
people here,’’ Judge said after
the Yankees drubbed the pitiful
White Sox, 12-3, in front of an
announced gathering of 15,259.
After the top of the sixth the
anti-Judge chants stopped because the majors’ leading home
run hitter sent a laser to left for
a two-run homer that highlighted a five-run rally.
As Judge started to tour the
bases with his 27th homer that
helped turn a 3-2 Yankees lead
into an 8-2 bulge, he glanced at
the hecklers. And when he got
to right field for the home sixth
he smiled at them instead of engaging them with words.
“I let actions speak for myself,’’ said Judge, who went 1for-3 and drew two walks. “If I
had said anything it would have
gotten worse.’’

“The double play was huge,’’
said Tanaka, who gave up two
runs and six hits in six innings,
winning for the first time since
May 8 at Cincinnati and improving to 6-7. “I told myself not to
give in. I am glad we got out of
that with minimal damage.’’
The contributions from Andujar and Wade were nice and
make for cute stories. Nevertheless, without Hicks, Holliday

increases.

New York Post, Thursday, June 29, 2017
HICAGO — The Yankees, after carrying a near-barren
farm system for so many
years, have lived a lesson they
didn’t necessarily want to learn:
With great rankings comes great
responsibility.
The darlings of the prospect-fetishizing set over the past 11
months, the Yankees, struck by a
major injury bug, now must keep
digging into their trove of young
talent in order to keep this surprise
2017 endeavor afloat. Wednesday
night turned into a mighty fine
showcase for the Baby Bombers,
who welcomed a new member
aboard and subsequently powered
Masahiro Tanaka and the Yankees
to a 12-3 thrashing of the White Sox
at Guaranteed Rate Field, in the
process leaping back over the Red
Sox (4-1 losers to the Twins) into
the AL East penthouse.
FIRST TIME: Miguel Andujar runs to first after his first-inning, tworun single during the Yankees’ 12-3 victory over the White Sox.
AP
leading 27th homer and, on his
home run trot, sneaked a peek at
the White Sox fans in right field
who had been razzing him.
“I was just having some fun,” a
grinning Judge said.
On the flip side, Judge’s fellow
stud Gary Sanchez exemplified the
growing pains that can come with
developing such a young core. Sanchez failed to block Tanaka’s splitter on a third-inning strikeout of
Jose Abreu, allowing Abreu to
reach first base safely and prompting Girardi to speak with Sanchez
at length in the top of the fourth.
Girardi said after the game he was
merely talking about techniques
with Sanchez and he had no issue
with Sanchez’s effort this season.
Matt Holliday, battling an illness
that the Yankees have yet to solve,
joined Aaron Hicks (Monday) and
Starlin Castro (Tuesday) as the
third important hitter in three days
to go on the disabled list. So it fell
upon the kids to do even more,
and they’ve already done
plenty. Among their seven most
valuable players entering
Wednesday’s action, as per
Baseball-Reference.com’s
WAR calculations, were
five guys who have played
only in the Yankees organization: Judge, Luis
Severino, Brett Gardner, Sanchez and
Jordan Montgomery. Andujar became the eighth
Yankee
to
make his major-league
debut in
2017.
Andujar began the season with
Double-A Trenton and just recently graduated to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre,
where
he
slashed .308/.379/.462 in seven
games.
Before the game, a scout who has
seen Andujar extensively told me,
“Andujar could have some production if he sticks to the same hitting
plan he has used so far, with the
straightaway hit patterns. He does
have legitimate power, but I hope
he doesn’t get too pull-happy.”
In his first at-bat, in the first, Andujar grounded a two-out, basesloaded single up the middle, plating
two. In his last at-bat, in the ninth,
he slashed a liner to deep center
field for a two-run double.
With Tyler Austin (right hamstring) a possibility to go on the
disabled list, and with lefty-hitting
center fielder Dustin Fowler
scratched from Scranton’s action
Wednesday, Girardi said he wasn’t
sure of the righty-swinging Andujar’s immediate fate; the Yankees
are scheduled to face righty starting pitchers the next three games.
“He came up and did a really
good job,” Girardi said of Andujar.
“We’ll see.”
If not for the success of their
youngsters, their players under
team control for many years to
come, the Yankees would be well
below .500. Now, as they try to stay
afloat in the playoff race, they require even more help. It’s a big ask.
Then again, the Yankees and the
industry talked big about what was
coming. To their credit, they have
delivered far more than they have
failed so far.

AXING JAX
WORST OF
THE WORST
Was Phil Jackson the worst executive in
New York sports history? Here are some
of the other candidates:
AL HARAZIN
Mets GM, 1992-93: Harazin, who worked
under his predecessor Frank Cashen
for nearly two decades, took over in
1992 after Cashen retired. Harazin
hired Jeff Torborg as manager, signed
Bobby Bonilla to a five-year, $29 million
contract and traded Gregg Jefferies,
Kevin McReynolds and Keith Miller to
the Royals for Bret Saberhagen. The
result was “The Worst Team Money
Could Buy.”
Toronto’s
Ujiri tops
wish list
to replace
Jackson
MIKE MILBURY
Islanders GM 1995-2006: In 11 seasons,
his teams didn’t win a
single playoff series, and
he traded away such
notable players as Ziggy
Palffy, Zdeno Chara,
Robert Luongo, Todd
Bertuzzi and Olli Jokinen.
He switched coaches like
most people change clothes, going
through nine different ones, including
himself twice, during his tenure.
ISIAH THOMAS
Knicks President of Basketball
Operations, 2003-08: Before Jackson
came along, Thomas was
considered the worst
executive in Knicks
history. They reached
the playoffs just once in
Thomas’ tenure, getting
swept by the Celtics in the
2004 first round, and his
teams never finished with a winning
record. He is best remembered for
trading two lottery picks for Eddy Curry
and his role in the sexual harassment
case of former employee Anucha
Browne Sanders.
M
BILLY KING
Nets GM 2010-16: In King’s six seasons,
the Nets reached the playoffs three
times, but he’s remembered for his
disastrous trades. King dealt three
first-round picks, in 2014, 2016 and
2018, in addition to allowing the Celtics
to swap picks in 2017, for over-the-hill
superstars Kevin Garnett and Paul
Pierce. King also traded his No. 1 pick in
2012 — which became elite point guard
Damian Lillard —for journeyman Gerald

U THE
MAS’ APPEAL: Toronto president Masai Ujiri, joking with
Raptors uber fan Drake, signed a five-year extension in
the fall, but the Knicks may try to lure him away.

AYBE, just maybe, if the Knicks
can pull this off,
they will be the ones
committing highway
robbery and doing the
fleecing.
Toronto’s Masai Ujiri is
emerging as the hoped-for
candidate for the Knicks
to replace Phil Jackson.
After three years of Knicks
wandering in the wilderness under a great coach
but dreadful executive, Ujiri
would be as wise a choice as
anything they’ve done at the Garden in a long time.
Assuming they cannot get R.C.
Buford to leave San Antonio, Ujiri is a logical target — not only
because he’s good, but because the
Knicks wouldn’t have to negotiate
with him anymore. But wanting
and getting are two different
things.
Ujiri has won as a GM
in Denver and Toron-

MAN FOR KNICKS
By BRIAN LEWIS in New York
and MARC BERMAN
in Orlando, Fla.
“They’re going to get somebody who’s going to want
results, and he’s been able to
get jobs done quicker than
expected,” Ujiri’s coach at
Bismarck State, Buster Gilliss,
told The Post. “He’s not one
that’s going to sit around.
He’s going to jump in, roll up
his sleeves and get it done as
quick and efficiently as he
can. He’s one of those driven
guys. He’s going to get there.”
He’s come far.
Ujiri got used to traveling,
with a doctor for a mother and
a father who was the head of
nursing education in Nigeria.
He lived briefly in England,
moved back to Nigeria at the
age of 2, and by 13 had fallen in
love with basketball. He’d read
Basketball Digest or Sports
Illustrated, watch VHS tapes,
even watch movies such as
“Come Fly With Me” or “The
Fish That Saved Pittsburgh.”
Ujiri went to prep school
in Seattle and played at Bismarck State College and Montana State-Billings before a
European career that included stops in Finland, Belgium,
Greece and Germany.
“He was very driven, always
real competitive. … I’m not
surprised where he’s at. He
always performed in outstanding fashion reaching
goals,’’ Gilliss told The Post.
“To get where he’s at, it’s a
dream situation.”
While working as a youth
coach in Nigeria, a chance
meeting with Thorpe at summer league in 1999 gave him
the chance he needed. Thorpe — the executive director
of the Pro Training Center
in Clearwater, Fla. — invited
him to the 2000 Final Four
and introduced him around.
Within days, Ujiri was fielding return calls from the likes
of Geno Auriemma.
Ujiri started helping Thorpe train players, and when
one had a workout scheduled
with the Magic, Ujiri drove
him there. After an hour with
Orlando GM John Gabriel and
coach Doc Rivers he’d talked
his way into a gig as a scout.
Unpaid. He even paid for trips
out of his pocket, and roomed
with players and other scouts.
But Ujiri was betting on
himself, and it paid off, when
Nuggets GM Kiki Vandeweghe hired him as an international scout. He left after four
years to join the Raptors and
quickly went from the assistant GM to Denver’s executive vice president of basketball operations then back to
Toronto’s president.
Will Knicks president be
next?
LINE OF SUCCESSION
The Knicks are looking for a new president
to clean up Phil Jackson’s mess. Raptors GM
Masai Ujiri is the top target, but here’s a look
at other likely candidates:
Joe Dumars: Dumars hasn’t
resurfaced since getting axed in
2014 after a nice stint in Detroit,
winning a title and making the
Finals. Dumars did pass on
Carmelo Anthony, however, for
Darko Milicic.
David Griffin: He plays the
lottery real well and managed
LeBron James’ return to
the Cavs; a very competent
team builder who has gone
underpaid.
Ed Stefanski: Former Nets GM now in
Memphis front office — seems to only be
part of winning organizations. Knows the
market.
Tony Ronzone: Well-liked longtime
Pistons/Mavericks personnel director who
knows Europe back and forth and has struck
up a nice relationship with Knicks top pick
Frank Ntilikina. Has also been part of Team
USA’s brain trust.
Troy Weaver: OKC’s assistant GM has
long been seen as a future top guy, but
hasn’t gotten his break after working under
Sam Presti. A former Syracuse assistant,
Weaver recruited Anthony to the Orange.

traded Carmelo Anthony to the
Knicks for half their roster, the
gross national product of Sweden
and an apparent promise to corroborate on at least one more lopsided trade in the future.
That subsequent deal — which
until the Nets cozied up on a phone
call with Boston’s Danny Ainge on
draft night 2013 — was the poster
child for worst basketball trade in
New York since, well, ever.
The Knicks got Andrea Bargnani with two years left on his
deal at $11.5 million and $11.8 million, for Marcus Camby, Quentin
Richardson, Steve Novak, a 2016
first-round pick, and two secondrounders, in 2014 and 2017. Bargnani played 71 games in two years
for the Knicks, averaging 13.9
points. The Knicks won 37, then 17
games with Bargnani. The Raptors
won 48 and 49, making the playoffs
each year.
Yeah, take that Masai Ujiri.
One irony is Ujiri traded Anthony, who wanted out of Denver and
wanted New York. With that narrow window, Ujiri, in a three-team
deal that included Minnesota, still
fetched Danilo Gallinari, Timofey
Mozgov, Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, a 2014 first-round
pick and second- rounders in 2012,
2013 and 2014.
The Raptors, under Ujiri, have
been a playoff team in all four of
his seasons, reaching the Eastern
Finals last year. With Denver, the
Nuggets made the playoffs in each
of his three years and he earned

Ujiri, to the average New Yorker, might best be known as the

outside Air Canada Centre in 2014.
He apologized, was fined, but has
yet to wear an “I (heart) Brooklyn”
T-shirt. Nets players had claimed
they wanted Toronto.
“I have to stand up for my team,
my organization, my city and
the country Canada,” Ujiri said.
“We’re not going to sit down here
and just be bullied by anybody and
be thrown around by anybody.”
Sounds like a guy the Knicks
need. Good luck trying to get him.

Masai Ujiri is expected to
be the Knicks’ top target to
replace Phil Jackson. And
after getting fleeced not once
but twice by Ujiri, the Knicks
hope to get the Raptors president to take one of the world’s
most dysfunctional jobs —
cleaning up Jim Dolan’s mess
in the Garden.
Ujiri has spent most of his
career in Denver and Toronto,
where he took over as general
manager in 2013 and built the
Raptors into an Eastern Conference contender. Wednesday the Raptors announced
they were promoting Bobby
Webster to GM and Ujiri
would “continue to oversee
basketball operations as president of the club.”
“If it’s true New York is
looking at Masai … I understand why I’d do it. He put
together two top seeds in
Denver and Toronto — places
[that] hadn’t done it,’’ David
Thorpe, Ujiri’s first boss and
mentor in the business, told
The Post.
“His best strength is building the right culture, where
people get along. … He builds
an open, transparent culture.
There’s a real conformity. The
Spurs have been a better culture than everybody else, and
Toronto is close.”
Ujiri, born and raised in
Nigeria, was NBA Executive of the Year in 2013, when
Denver won a club-record
57 games and he got the best
of the Knicks in the Carmelo
Anthony deal. He took over
as Toronto GM that offseason and immediately foisted Andrea Bargnani off on
Knicks GM Glen Grunwald in
exchange for Marcus Camby,
Steve Novak, Quentin Richardson, two second-round picks
and what would become a lottery pick in 2016.
Bargnani became another
Knicks bust, while the Raptors have gone 204-124 since.
“He’s done an excellent job
in Toronto being a leader. Of
course people have interest in him and want him. In
our league, it’s something
to be wanted. It’s something
he earned,” Raptors coach
Dwane Casey said Wednesday on SiriusXM Radio,
before beginning to try to convince Ujiri to stay. “The team
is ready to take the next step.
We’re in a good situation.
That’s my recruiting pitch to
Masai.’’
What would the Knicks
be getting if Ujiri, 46, instead
bites on Dolan’s pitch?

SALE ISN’T OVER
By MARC BERMAN
ORLANDO, Fla. — Even with
Phil Jackson out of his way, things
aren’t yet peachy-keen for Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks. He can
breathe easier but not easy.
The Vertical reported that the
Knicks still are looking to deal
Anthony (though they’re unwilling
to buy him out). The club, which
doesn’t have anyone to replace
Jackson as president yet, is trying
to get younger.
However, Anthony has a no-trade
clause he is expected to exercise if
anything materializes. Anthony also
owns a monetary trade-kicker, making a deal quite an enormous task.
Jackson and James Dolan had
discussed buying out Anthony, but
the owner was dead set against it.
The stretch provision would have
given the organization $15.4 million in extra cap space come July,
but the downside is, Anthony
would’ve remained on the cap for
five years while he helped another
team, presumably the Cavaliers.
Anthony, according to a source,
is relieved at Jackson’s ouster.
Because of his separation from his
wife, La La, Anthony no longer was
amenable to moving far from his
10-year-old son, Kiyan. Anthony’s
wife said as much Tuesday during a TV interview.
Whether Anthony pushed
for a buyout to sign with
Cleveland as a free agent is a
matter of debate. One source
said he wanted
to remain in
New York and
only would
have asked
for a buyout if things

ORLANDO, Fla. — A
s o m b e r a n d s h a ke n looking Knicks coach Jeff
Hornacek thanked Phil
Jackson for hiring him 13
months ago and called it “a
tough day for us.’’
Speaking at the end of the
Knicks’ first summer-league
practice, Hornacek would
not take questions from the
media, only making a quick
statement about Jackson’s
sudden firing Wednesday
morning. Hornacek, hired

Steve Mills in charge for now, the
future for Anthony and Kristaps
Porzingis as teammates again next
season looks a bit brighter. Actually, some Knicks officials believe
Anthony’s influence on Porzingis
has been detrimental and a key reason why Jackson became adamant
about removing him from
the roster any way he
could.
“Phil thought
Carmelo was trying to sabotage
him,” an NBA
source said.
Anthony, the
only Knick who
has been a part
of the four straight
teams that have
missed the playoffs, was
con-
sidered disruptive in the locker
room. On March 1, when the Knicks
were last in Orlando playing out the
string, Porzingis voiced his support
of the triangle offense.
“We’re starting to learn it now
the way we should and we should
have been playing from the beginning of the season,” Porzingis
said then. “So we’re a little
behind. Hopefully, I don’t
know when, we can start
using it properly and making some impact playing
it. I like the triangle.’’
According to an NBA
source, Anthony was
furious to read Porzingis’
positive sentiments on an
offense he disdains.
“Melo really chewed
him out, lit into him,’’ the
source said.
There were
few positive comments regarding
the triangle afterward from Porzingis, who proceeded to blow off
his exit meeting in protest of the
chaotic state of the Jackson-run
franchise. Jackson admitted at his
mid-April press conference the triangle was “met by resistance from
the top’’ and “rebelliousness.”
Charley Rosen, Jackson’s longtime confidant, wrote in a column
Wednesday that Anthony’s “private complaining’’ led Porzingis to
“become disrespectful to several
members of the coaching staff.’’
In the end, Dolan became unable
to justify keeping Jackson as president — having alienated his two
best, most marketable players in
Anthony and Porzingis.
Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek is
expected to run the offense of his
choice — similar to the fast-paced
model he ran in Phoenix. Blending
his offense with the triangle was
said to confuse the players.
In a perfect world, Porzingis
would love to be a Knick the rest
of his career. His brothers, Janis
and Martins, live with him in his
Manhattan apartment. With the
cloud of Jackson’s uneven leadership removed, Porzingis certainly
will feel better about the future.
He is a restricted free agent in
2019. Both he and Anthony are
now on more stable footing
— the Jackson coup complete.
By THOMAS LIPE
Now that Phil Jackson is
out the door, Kristaps Porzingis is back on board with
the Knicks.
At least, that is what a
quick glance at the young
Latvian star’s social media
accounts indicate.
At 9:31 a.m. Wednesday,
the Knicks issued a press
release to announce they
were parting ways with
their president of basketball
operations. Within 15 minutes of the announcement,
Porzingis started following
the Knicks’ No. 8-overall
draft pick, Frank Ntilikina,
on Instagram.
Considering drafting the
French point guard was
Jackson’s last big move
as Knicks president and
Porzingis had waited this
long to extend the follow,
Porzingis’ almost perfectly
timed acceptance of Ntilikina could be read as an
olive branch of sorts.
The relationship between
Jackson and theKnicks’
franchise player had turned
rocky, culminating in Porzingis skipping his exit interview at the end of the season. Jackson then heaped
fuel on the fire by suggesting he would be willing to
trade Porzingis.
Now, Jackson is out,
Porzingis remains, and
the two young players
who could be the
future of the
franchise are
friends on Instagram. Things are
looking up.
tlipe@nypost.com
Hornacek: Phil firing is ‘tough day for us’
in May 2016, will stay in his
position. General manager
Steve Mills takes over dayto-day operations for the
franchise.
“It’s always an interesting time when stuff
like that happens,’’ Hornacek said in a low voice.
“I just want to thank Phil
for giving me the opportunity here in New York.
I worked with Steve all
year long. We had a great
working relationship and
talking about things. We’ll
continue to do that.
“I wish Phil the best from
this point on. It’s a tough
day for us, but our focus is
to get this team better, continue to build our young
players and figure out a
way to win. We have a lot
of time before the regular
season to figure that out.”
Asked if the triangle will
be any part of the offense,
Hornacek demurred.
“That’s all I’m going to
say,’’ he said.
Mills had not yet joined
the club in Orlando. Sources indicated the triangle
will no longer be a mandate, as a new president
may be hired, possibly
Masai Ujiri of the Raptors.
Hornacek ran a hightempo offense in Phoenix
and tried blending that
with triangle principles
in his rookie season with
the Knicks before Jackson
intervened in February.
➤
Knicks rookie point
guard Frank Ntilikina, Jack-
son’s lottery selection from
six days ago, could be seen
with a big ice pack on his
right knee and limping leaving the gym. He was not permitted to talk to the media.
“We’ll talk about those
guys [Thursday],’’ Hornacek said when asked
whether Ntilikina suffered
an injury in his first Knicks
practice.

AXING JAX
T
HE DAY Phil Jackson was hired to run
the Knicks, as folks jumped over each
other trying to ring hosannas for the deal
— and, full admission, I was at the front of
that line — I got a call from someone who’d
worked in the NBA a long time. He understood why James Dolan had hired Jackson,
even agreed it was a move the Knicks’ owner
probably had to make.
“But let me ask you a question,” he said.
“Let’s say you happen to know the greatest dentist in the world. This guy has shown
for years that he can perform magic in orthodontia. People come from all over the world
to see this guy, and he fixes their teeth
every time.
“Now answer me this: If
you were in cardiac arrest,
would you want this guy to
fix your heart, too? They’re
both called ‘doctor.’ But
they’re two entirely different jobs.”
I only used that analogy about 75,000 times
the past three-plus years,
as it slowly, and then
rapidly, became apparent Jackson was taking
a curious — and then
ruinous — approach
building the Knicks.
And believe me, it
wasn’t always easy to
do, thanks to the presence of what Michael
Kay so astutely calls
“Phil Truthers.”
This was the faction of Knicks fan —
really, of Phil fan —
who opted to believe
the words of Jackson
should be printed in
red ink, the way old
versions of the bible used
to highlight the quotes of
Jesus. Who believed the interpretations of selectively-chosen
mouthpieces like Jackson’s old
Woodstock running mate, Charley
Rosen, should be viewed as the work
of a secular Talmudic scholar.
Usually, those retorts went something like this:
“He’s won 11 rings! How many
have you won?”
The answer to that question: if
we’re keeping score as president and

DOCTOR
DOLITTLE
Legendary coach was miscast
as an overmatched executive
general manager of a pro basketball team, and
not the coach of one, then Jackson has just as
many as I have, just as many as you have, just
as many as that rabid core of Knicks Nation
that faithfully turned its lonely eyes to Jackson on St. Patrick’s Day 2014 and welcomed
him home, eager to believe just allowing Jackson’s aura in the building
was the same as having
him on the bench.
From the start, it was
clear that wasn’t the same
thing, that what the Knicks
really needed was an expert
cardiac surgeon, that in hiring Jackson they were hiring the best orthodontist in
the world instead, and asking him to perform a
quintuple bypass. The shingle out front might
have said “Basketball Boss,” same as before.
But they are two entirely different jobs.
Now, a few days before free agency, Dolan
pulls the plug on the final two years of this
Phil-ibuster and not a moment too soon. Not
that the Knicks are in any kind of position
to tempt any free agent of note anyway, but
that’s one more reminder of the abject failure
of Jackson’s time here: not only didn’t he sign
any first-rate free agents, he could almost never even get a meeting with any of them.
He did do a splendid job outbidding himself
for Joakim Noah. So there’s that.
The Truthers will point their slings and
arrows at Kristaps Porzingis now, accuse the
21-year-old of helping to kick a 71-year-old
legend to the curb, and it bears repeating one
more time that Porzingis should have honored his exit interview. Still, what that act of
defiance did was shine a light on the Knicks’
inner workings and infrastructure, exposing
chaos that had only been hinted at.
And revealed a basic,
untenable truth: Phil
Jackson always believed,
from the moment he got
the keys to the corporate
washroom, that there was
room for but one star in
this solar system: him. He
would insist on his beloved
triangle, at the cost of all
reason and ration. He would pick fights with
his best players, and for kicks with the best
players on other clubs.
Maybe Carmelo Anthony’s time here won’t
be remembered by fans as idyllically as Walt
Frazier’s, or even John Starks’. But he does
have a 54-win season and a playoff victory on
his résumé. His record with the Knicks was
141-117 before Jackson, 80-166 with him. Draw
your own conclusions from those numbers.
Now, of course, Dolan has an opportunity.
He continues to insist he has divorced himself
from the day-to-day basketball operation, that
what he wants is to find someone in whom he
can entrust the basketball prong of his sporting
empire the way he once entrusted Glen Sather,
and now Jeff Gorton, with the hockey half.

Q&A
Figuring the triangle is a thing of
the past, what is Jeff Hornacek’s
offensive plan?
People close to Hornacek believe
he’ll return to the exciting, rapidpaced motion offense of his
Phoenix days that worked
so well his first year there.
Blending it with the triangle
proved problematic.
What does this do to the
free-agent plan?
Left unsaid is owner James
Dolan’s hope the removal
of the triangle will lead
to snazzier point-guard
free agents to want
to come to New York.
Already Derrick Rose
wanted to return, but
now Jeff Teague, Jrue
Holiday and Kyle Lowry
become possibilities if
the Knicks open up more
cap room. Teague told The
Post that Derrick Rose
is easier to guard in the
triangle.
Will Isiah Thomas become
more involved now that
Jackson is gone?
Thomas will not be
considered for the
presidency as Dolan
likes him doing what
he’s doing, turning the
Liberty around. Jackson
disliked Thomas’
presence, so maybe
Hornacek will use him
more as a sounding board as
they share a Chicago history.
How does this affect Rose’s free
agency?
Jackson
enjoyed
Rose’s
positive exit
meeting
and was
desperate to

The Knicks still
want him back for the right price, but
his chemistry with Kristaps Porzingis
lacked something.
What does this mean for Kurt
Rambis?
With Rambis’ good relationship
with Hornacek, a former Phoenix
teammate, he’s expected to remain
on the Knicks coaching staff as the
team’s defensive specialist.
— Marc Berman
nypost.com
This is beyond imperative. The last time
the Knicks truly hit a huge score in hiring
a basketball chief was more than 26 years
ago, March 1991, when they plucked Dave
Checketts out of the league office. Checketts was smart enough to hire Pat Riley,
tough enough to withstand a decade of fullblown New York City hype and hysteria at a
time when the Knicks were the town’s No. 1
sporting obsession.
Dolan’s arrival, emergence and distinct
difference in leadership style meant that
partnership was doomed from the start.
It is no coincidence the Knicks’ descent
to darkness more or less coincides with
Checkett’s departure on May 14, 2001.
Since then, the closest thing to
corporate competence was Donnie Walsh’s brief three-year stint.
That, too, ended amid a haze of
speculation that Dolan’s meddling
drove Walsh batty, specifically his
insistence on acquiring Anthony in
2011, at all costs.
Dolan insists — has insisted —
he’s learned his lesson. If he does
target someone like Raptors president Masai Ujiri, or a basketball-first
lifer in Ujiri’s image, it will go a long
way toward solidifying confidence
in that pledge. He may never have
an opportunity quite like this
again because another epic
Jacksonian-level fail may
leave the basketball operation in irretrievable tatters.
Which is pretty close
to where Jackson has left
it, despite his mouthpiece’s
bizarre claim Wednesday
that the New York media had
it out for Jackson since 1999
when Checketts tried to hire
him to replace our mascot, Jeff
Van Gundy.
Rosen used to be a writer
with chops (“Scandals of ’51”
is essential reading) but he’s now
the kind of pathetic yes-man Jackson
hoped to surround himself with here,
starting with his boss, Dolan.
On Wednesday, Dolan planted himself firmly in the dissenting camp and
struck a blow for common sense by amputating the most damaging aspect of his operation. Now he needs a surgeon to transplant
hope where despair has festered for 17 years.
He’d best not hire a dentist for the job.

who boycotted his exit meeting, and
had been publicly trying to trade
Anthony.
Anthony has a no-trade clause,
and without any takers, Jackson had
considered using the stretch provision and waiving the 33-year-old
Anthony, but ownership was not
interested. With the Porzingis saga
and Anthony stalemate, Dolan felt
he had no choice but remove the
dark cloud, Jackson’s antiquated
triangle offense, and pay off the $24
million and two years left on his
pact.
Before the firing, a league executive
who had talked to Knicks officials
described their state entering free
agency Saturday as “a roller-coaster
ride where everyone better close
their eyes and hope for the best.’’
Ironically, the Knicks held their
f irst summer-league practice
Wednesday with players
selected because of
their potential fit in
the triangle offense
that now will be put
to rest.
Dolan said the

the Garden. As someone who treasures winning, I am deeply disappointed that we weren’t able to do
that. New York fans deserve nothing less. I wish them and the Knicks
organization all the best — today
and always.”
According to NBA sources, Dolan
went back on his February promise
to have Jackson fulfill the full five
years of his contract because of new
circumstances revolving around
Jackson’s public
feuds with the
Knicks’ two
best players,
Anthony
and Kristaps Porzingis.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Phil Jackson
will have a lot of time to contemplate everything that went wrong
during his three-year, three-month
Knicks presidential reign as he
headed off to his lakeside Montana
ranch, possibly retired for good.
The Knicks officially ended the
Zen Master’s rotten run Wednesday
morning in a press release co-issued
by Jackson and owner James Dolan,
generously describing the sides
“mutually agreed to part company”
after “discussing the future.”
With three dreadful seasons in the
books (records of 17-65, 32-50 and
31-51), Jackson said he was “deeply
disappointed’’ he didn’t bring the
Knicks a championship. Actually,
Jackson’s three teams never even
got to March still in the playoff race,
and the man who won 11 NBA rings
as coach ultimately lost a power
struggle to a player without one,
Carmelo Anthony.
“The New York Knicks will
always hold a special place in my
heart,” Jackson said. “This team and
this town launched my NBA career.
I will forever be indebted to them. I
am grateful to Mr. Dolan for giving
me the opportunity to return here.
“I had hoped, of course, to bring
another NBA championship to
AP
to be heavily considered. The Post
has learned Liberty president Isiah
Thomas will not be considered as
Jackson’s successor.
General manager Steve Mills will
run the organization “over the shortterm,” and Tim Leiweke — a veteran
sports executive — has been brought
in to advise the franchise on an interim basis. Leiweke, a former CEO of
Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment,
hired Ujiri away from the Nuggets to
become Raptors GM in 2013. He also
is a friend of music mogul/Dolan pal
Irving Azoff, who originally brokered
the Jackson deal. Jackson’s dismissal
jeopardizes the status of his top advisor, Clarence Gaines Jr., the former
Bulls scout who became the Zen Master’s lone front-office hire.
“I will not be involved in the operation of the team,” Dolan vowed in
Wednesday’s statement.
Mills had not yet joined the club
in Orlando and Knicks coach Jeff
Hornacek, who is safe, made a statement thanking Jackson but didn’t
take questions.
Dolan praised Jackson’s legacy in
basketball and thanked him for his
“service” to the Knicks.
“After careful thought and consideration, we mutually agreed that the
Knicks will be going in a different
direction,” Dolan said.

THE LOWS ... AND LOWS
Phil Jackson joined the Knicks as team president in March 2014 to much fanfare
and paeans to the team’s glory days. He was fired Wednesday, having lost the trust
of the fan base, the loyalty of the team’s best players … and a lot of games. For
every ring he won and Zen Master stroke of genius he worked as a coach, Jackson
committed as many blunders as an executive. The Post’s Ethan Sears takes a look at
the lowlights:

and Yellowstone National Park. Joining the cast are Luke Grimes (“American Sniper”) as Dutton’s youngest son, Cory; Wes Bentley (“Interstellar”) as Dutton’s older son, Jamie; Kelly Reilly
(“Flight”) as John’s daughter, Beth; and Cole Houser (“White Oleander”) as Rip Wheeler, a “tough
and merciless wrangler.” Production on “Yellowstone” begins in August in Utah.
