  • HELSINKI (AP) — President Donald Trump arrived in Finland on Sunday for a closely watched one-on-one summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, hours after telling an interviewer that he was going into the meeting today with “low expectations.”

    On the way to meet with a leader who has cracked down on the press in his country, Trump tweeted that the U.S. news media is the “enemy of the people” and complained that “No matter how well I do at the Summit” he’ll face “criticism that it wasn’t good enough.”

  • Ashlynn Kline’s reserve grand champion barrow drew the highest price Friday at the Fulton County 4-H Fair Spotlight Sale of Champions.
    The 276-pound crossbred netted his owner $6,750 from a buyer group.
    All but two of the 13 animals auctioned in the Spotlight Sale were purchased by buyer groups comprised of multiple people and businesses. The 4-H’ers earned an unofficial total of $31,500 for their animals.
    Perhaps the most pleasant moment of the auction came when Evan Harsh, 13, accompanied by his father Matt, asked to speak to the crowd in the Jud Hudkins Arena.
