Anne Barge Celebrates 20 Years in Bridal Business, Readies to Launch Little White Dress Collection

NEW YORK – Anne Barge celebrated its 20th anniversary Thursday with a New York fashion show and a one-night retrospective, and creative director Shawne Jacobs is planning for the company’s next chapter.
A graduate of the American Intercontinental University in Atlanta, she joined the company in 2001. In 2012, during a trip to one of the company’s factories in China, Jacobs and her husband learned of Barge’s succession idea. “She saw us really working together as a team. Me working as creative director designing for the brand and my husband running the financial side of it,” Jacobs said.
For Thursday night’s Anne Barge runway show, gowns from the namesake’s archives were reimagined to infuse new elements to some traditional and classic styles. The result led to architectural designs made with Italian Kalika and allover floral Alençon laces for more feminine accents. There were also tulle designs with 3-D textures and metallic floral embroidery. To give brides-to-be more youthful options, the company offered jumpsuits, bustiers and illusion necklines.
Having attended its first bridal market in China in July, the company aims to build sales in China, which is not overflowing with Western bridal designers. In addition, brides in China typically wear four or five different

Vogue Talents Celebrates 10 Years of Fashion Scouting

ALL GROWN UP: It’s easy to forget such well-known talents such as Jonathan Anderson, Simone Rocha, Marco de Vincenzo or Glenn Martens were ever fledgling designers.
Yet they all benefitted from the same early support system: Vogue Talents, Vogue Italia’s fashion scouting project created by the late Franca Sozzani, which celebrated its 10th anniversary during Milan fashion week with an exhibition of its greatest hits.
“It wasn’t easy to chose these 70 silhouettes, because in our 10 years of existence we spotlighted over a thousand designers,” said Sara Sozzani Maino, head of Vogue Talents and Vogue Italia deputy editor for special fashion projects, at the opening of the Vogue Talents exhibition at the Palazzo Cusani on Thursday.
Danish designer Cecilie Banhsen, London-based duo Chopova Lowena, New York fashion week darling Tomo Koizumi and this year’s LVMH Prize winner Thebe Magugu all had silhouettes exhibited in a large, packed ballroom.
“I never say that I discovered them: Vogue Talents is about spotlighting them at the right moment,” explained Sozzani Maino. “If you put them on the scene and they are not ready, you can predict a burnout. It’s our responsibility to give them a chance at the right moment.”
Some of those moments can come pretty

Alife Talks 20 Years, Lee Jeans Collab and Future

Alife is hitting the reset button in its 20th year in business.
Since Rob Cristofaro founded the brand in 1999, Alife has been a popular name among New York City’s skaters, ball players and the streetwear community. The brand was one of the first in that market to introduce collaborations and a footwear collection and now, Alife is ringing in 20 years with renewed energy.
“We haven’t ever done an anniversary or really put much energy behind any of the anniversaries that we’ve had,” said Cristofaro. “What you’ll start seeing from the 20th anniversary onward is the culmination of consistent releases, launches, projects and executions.”
The New York City-based brand last year launched collaboration footwear with Crocs and this year released a capsule collection with the Brooklyn Museum and artist Faith Ringgold. The company is relaunching footwear in October, and also this fall will offer a new collaboration with Lee Jeans, extend its partnership with Adidas, and work with the Bronx Museum of the Arts for its upcoming exhibition on photographer Henry Chalfant titled “Henry Chalfant: Art vs. Transit, 1977-1987.”
“People know Alife for footwear, it was one of the first things that we got into,” said Alife general manager Treis Hill. The brand’s original partner

NFL, Oakley to Partner for Four Years

Oakley will be the sunglass partner of the National Football League for the next four years.
Beginning this season, all 32 teams will wear Oakley’s Prizm Lens Technology on their helmet shields. Oakley has produced football shields for helmets for more than 20 years, but this deal makes it the official on-field partner for the league.
Renie Anderson, the NFL’s chief revenue officer and executive vice president of partnerships, said the deal was two years in the making.
The Luxottica Group-owned brand is also offering its Holbrook and Flak 2.0 XL eyewear for all of the teams and the Low Key women’s style for seven teams, as well as select frames that can be personalized through the Oakley Custom Program.

The Oakley Low Key women’s sunglasses for the New York Giants 

Patrick Mahomes, quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, and a sponsored Oakley athlete, dons the Flak 2.0XL eyewear and team uniform in the campaign. Oakley named the reigning NFL MVP a team member in March following his stellar season. He is the face of the brand and fronted Oakley’s I See Prizm campaign.

Tom Kalenderian Celebrates 40 Years at Barneys

There aren’t many retail executives who can say they’ve worked for one company for 40 years. But Tom Kalenderian is not just any retailer.
Kalenderian, the executive vice president and general merchandise of men’s, children and home for Barneys New York, is one of the most respected merchants in the luxury men’s business.
He’s survived a bankruptcy filing, five ownership changes and a similar number of chief executive officers. He’s seen the business shift its focus from downtown to uptown and lived through its expansions and contractions — all without losing focus on making Barneys’ men’s business the best it can be.
What sets Kalenderian apart is not only his passion for the industry and his deep knowledge of the business, but also his ability to unearth little-known brands that Barneys can incubate and help build into powerhouse brands, whether that’s Boglioli, Isaia or Ovadia.
But something else sets him apart as well: his humility.
In an industry where self-promotion has become a career objective and egos can fill an auditorium, Kalenderian is the opposite. Ask him, for example, why he’s been so successful and he always answers the same way: it’s because of Barneys, not him.
And although he’s undoubtedly received other job offers through

With less than a month to go to the 71st annual Met Gala, news on attendees, designers and the exhibit itself are coming to light as viewers speculate who will win the red carpet — many guessing Rihanna, yet again — and who will be attending.
This year’s theme, “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” gives fashion designers and celebrities room to experiment with extravagant, avant garde costumes. With Lady Gaga, Blake Lively and Katy Perry confirmed in attendance, we can expect some out-of-this world looks.
From which designers are dressing the red carpet to the Costume Institute’s exhibit itself, here is everything you need to know about this year’s Met Gala.
When and where is the Met Gala?
The Met Gala will be held on May 6 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. While the event is sold out, individual tickets went for $ 35,000 and tables of 10 went for $ 200,000 or $ 300,000.

Starting last August, the drama began when the Academy introduced new measures to increase viewership for the awards show. It announced that the telecast would be cut down to exactly three hours, meaning many of the awards would not be televised. Then the drama shifted over to the hosting gig, which the Academy briefly gave to comedian Kevin Hart, then quickly took away.
The drama hasn’t stopped there. There was also the brief introduction of a new award, called “Best Popular Film,” which was met with much criticism from the film industry and beyond, and the news that the Academy wasn’t letting all five “Best Original Song” nominees perform during the telecast.
From who’s hosting and performing to what can be expected during the live telecast, here’s everything you need to know about this year’s Academy Awards.

LONDON — Ten years after generating buzz with a first collection of eight garments made from military parachute fabric and big ambitions around recycling, Christopher Raeburn is gaining even greater recognition in an industry that is waking up at last to environmental sustainability and responsible design.
As Timberland’s global creative director, the London-based designer sees an opportunity to give his sustainability mission a broader, more global platform, while at his own label, Raeburn has brought on board his brother and fellow designer, Graeme Raeburn, as performance director, a new role.
The brothers are now aiming to push the boundaries of design, material innovation and waste reduction further and to redefine what success means along the way.
“For us, success is not about Raeburn products being in every store or on every street corner, quite the opposite. We want to look at growth in a much more modern way than just incremental numbers,” Raeburn said from his East London studio as he was preparing his fall 2019 show, set for Jan. 6 during London Fashion Week Men’s.

Eton Marks 90 Years

MILAN — Swedish shirtmaker Eton is going to celebrate its 90th anniversary with a special event at Pitti Uomo.
Although the company is keeping details on the celebration under wraps, Eton’s chief creative officer Sebastian Dollinger highlighted the importance of the Florentine trade show.
“Pitti Uomo is the event to be at for the men’s fashion industry and we are happy and honored to fete our anniversary there,” he said during an interview in Milan.
Founded in Gånghester, a town in Southern Sweden, by David and Annie Patterson, Eton sells its high-end shirts in 50 countries through a wholesale network of about 1,600 international retailers, including prestigious department stores Harrods, Selfridges, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Harry Rosen, Le Bon Marché, El Corte Inglés, Rinascente and KaDeWe.
“We seem an old brand, but we are just at the beginning,” said Eton chief executive officer Hans Davidson. “In 90 years we managed to build a solid label, which is known for the high quality and the style. Now, the goal is to reach new and old customers through all the channels.”
While Eton is well-positioned across Europe and the U.S., the company still has to conquer the Asian market.

Ugg Taps Heron Preston, Adwoa Aboah for Campaign Marking 40 Years

Ugg is celebrating its 40th anniversary by looking back and forward with a new campaign featuring Heron Preston and Adwoa Aboah.
The campaign, shot by photographer and visual artist Erik Madigan Heck, goes live on Thursday and has Preston and Aboah wearing its 40:40:40 collection, a limited-edition range of product reissued in its most beloved styles — Classic Boot, Tasman, Ascot, Neumel and Jesse II — in the original colorway, Sand.
Heck brought a fine art sensibility to the campaign by reimagining California landscapes such as Big Sur and the Redwood Forest in saturated sets with bold patterns, such the sea of poppies, California’s state flower. But it’s the personalities wearing the product that make perhaps a stronger statement.
“We wanted to take the opportunity to look back to who we are as a California lifestyle brand that’s been embraced by bold and provocative people, so the images respect our heritage while featuring product on people we have connected with, but who may not seem like the people who’ve expressed the brand over the last 20 years,” said Andrea O’Donnell, Ugg brand president.
The campaign follows one that featured “unexpected” Ugg fans such as Kim Gordon, Kyle MacLachlan and Cherry Glazer versus quintessential California

Badgley Mischka Celebrate 30 Years

There was no yelling or racing to find last-minute safety pins or other safeguards. Melodic music played faintly in the distance, as guests sat cozily at cafe-type tables of three sipping prosecco and waiting for the lights to go down.
Looking tan in navy blazers and white pants, the designers had that just-back-from-vacation look, even though recent days have been working ones. They hinted that the preshow setting was a little more chaotic behind the black curtain, where models were changing into their “Alice in Wonderland”-inspired runway looks. But the designers have experienced far more memorable shows.
Thirty years ago at their first show in SoHo it really felt like the sky was falling. “Unfortunately, the ceiling fell down. We accidentally didn’t realize as young designers that you can’t hang your lighting from a sprinkler system,” Badgley said.

The Strange Reason John McCain Refused to Take Direct Flights From Phoenix to D.C. for 30 Years

When federal restrictions prevented airlines from flying directly between Washington, D.C. and any city more than 1,250 miles away, Sen. John McCain took a stand on behalf of his adoptive hometown of Phoenix.

The federal perimeter rule required that all flights to and from Reagan National Airport must be shorter than 1,250 miles, and in 1999, the six-term senator led an effort to repeal it, hoping this would improve business for Phoenix-based airline America West and benefit Arizona in general, according to Travel + Leisure. The flight between Phoenix and Washington, D.C. is 1,979 miles.

RELATED VIDEO: Senator John McCain Dies at Age 81

The Vietnam vet’s bill failed, but it did encourage Congress to start making “beyond-perimeter exemptions.” Starting in 2000, America West began service from Reagan National Airport to Phoenix, USA Today reports, but McCain never boarded the flight.

RELATED: Sen. John McCain, Former POW, Opened Up to PEOPLE About His Faith in God and His Country

Some opponents of the senator suggested McCain’s efforts to eliminate the rule were to shorten his commute, not to benefit the people of Arizona, something he felt he couldn’t stand for.

“To John, that was such an abhorrent thing to be accused of, he just took it off the table and said, ‘OK, I won’t fly it,”’ American Airlines CEO Doug Parker, then the CEO of America West, told USA Today. “I don’t think any other member would make that statement.”

RELATED: John McCain ‘Was Sharp as Hell and Tougher Than a $ 2 Steak,’ Says Former Colleague

McCain’s stubbornness once got in the way of his professional commitments, Parker shared. The late senator was flying to an event where he was slated to introduce then-President George W. Bush, but his connecting flight was canceled.

The man who would stand in for him, another Arizona Republican, had taken the direct flight.

“He wouldn’t take the nonstop even to get to an event on time,” Parker said.

Sen. Jeff Flake, also a Republic from Arizona, backed up Parker’s story about McCain’s commitment, as well. Flake began his career in Washington, D.C, in 2001, it wasn’t until “years and years” later that McCain finally took the direct flight.

RELATED: John McCain’s Mom, 106, Is ‘Proud’ of His Legacy — But It’s ‘Tough’ to ‘Bury Your Child’: Source

Flake remembers that when he decided to make the switch, he said, “I’ve done my penance, I guess.”

Parker said that one of the first times Sen. McCain used the direct flight was to arrive home in time to see one of his seven children graduate. When there wasn’t any controversy afterward, Parker recalled McCain thought, “OK, no one seems to care. I think the statute of limitations has run out.”

RELATED: John McCain Wanted ‘Danny Boy’ Sung at His Funeral, Says Friend Who Helped Plan Services

Sen. McCain died on Saturday at age 81, one day after his family announced that he would be stopping treatment for his stage-four brain cancer. He was diagnosed in July 2017.

“Last summer, Senator John McCain shared with Americans the news our family already knew: he had been diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma, and the prognosis was serious,” the family’s statement said. “In the year since, John has surpassed expectations for his survival. But the progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict. With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment.”

RELATED: McCain Family Attends Public Viewing to Hug and Exchange Stories with Thousands of Mourners

Sen. McCain will be laid to rest on Saturday at the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis, Maryland, with a private service at the National Cathedral beforehand. On Friday, there will be a public viewing in the United States Capitol before a procession from to the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial.

Royals Gaze Skyward as RAF Marks 100 Years With Celebratory Flypast in London  

COME FLY WITH ME: Members of the royal family tilted their heads skyward on Tuesday afternoon as the Royal Air Force marked its centenary with a dramatic flypast across central London and over Buckingham Palace.
The largest formation of RAF Typhoons, a combat aircraft, spelled out 100 above Buckingham Palace. A total of 100 warplanes — including jets, helicopters and airplanes — one for each year — flew over the palace balcony.
The event, which made pedestrians all over central London stop in their tracks and stare at the display, took place 100 days after the actual anniversary of the RAF, which is on April 1.

Woman Gets 18 Years After Posing as Nurse to Kidnap Newborn and Raise the Girl as Her Own

On Friday, nearly two decades after she abducted an hours-old infant from a hospital in Florida and then raised the girl as her own, a South Carolina woman was reportedly sentenced to 18 years in prison for kidnapping — the length of time the stolen child lived away from her biological family.

“There are no winners and no losers in this case,” Judge Marianne Aho said at the sentencing hearing for 52-year-old Gloria Williams, of Walterboro, according to the Associated Press.

Williams pleaded guilty earlier this year to kidnapping and custodial interference. Under the terms of her plea deal, she could be sentenced to no more than 22 years in prison. She was ordered on Friday to serve five years concurrently for the interference charge.

Williams was sentenced in Duval County, Florida, where she kidnapped newborn Kamiyah Mobley from UF Health Jacksonville, then called University Medical Center, on July 10, 1998, while she was disguised as a nurse.

She said at a sentencing hearing last month that she smuggled Kamiyah out of the building in a bag, local TV station WJAX reported. She had not planned that day to steal a baby when — having recently miscarried — she traveled from her South Carolina home to Florida, she said: “I felt like I was on autopilot. My life was out of control, I lost everything.”

Mobley’s mother, Shanara Mobley, was 16 years old and has said she trusted Williams because the older woman spent hours getting to know her and Kamiyah.

Neither a prosecutor’s spokesman nor Mobley’s attorney immediately responded to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

The headline-making case broke open in January 2017, when authorities announced that anonymous tips led them to discover Williams raised Kamiyah in South Carolina under the name Alexis Manigo and that Kamiyah believed Williams was her biological mother.

The revelation that Kamiyah was alive and well attracted international attention, and her return came as a startling relief to her biological family.

Still, the confirmation of her life as an unwitting kidnapping victim set up a series of thorny entanglements for her and her loved ones — between those who raised her and those she had been stolen from for so long.

“It doesn’t heal now. I’m still hurting. When you’re reaching out to my child, that is my child,” Shanara said in court in May. “I am your mother, Kamiyah! I am your mother.”

• It was the scandal that rocked America’s most storied political family and changed the course of presidential history. PEOPLE‘s first-ever podcast, Cover-Up, dives into the Chappaquiddick scandal and attempts to piece together what happened in the hours after Ted Kennedy’s car went over a narrow wooden bridge, killing his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne. Subscribe now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play or wherever podcasts are available.

Of her enduring heartache — each year buying a cake to mark another passing birthday for her missing daughter, Shanara said, “I always thought about my baby every day, every day, every day. I would catch myself in my car crying, in bed crying, taking a bath crying, doing something with her siblings and crying.”

While on the stand during a two-day hearing in May, Williams apologized to Kamiyah’s parents and told her, “I never meant to cause you any harm, any pain, any of that,” according to WJAX.

In the months since Williams’ arrest, Kamiyah has acknowledged the wrongfulness of what was done to her as a baby while also continuing to note that, even if she was raised by her abductor, she was raised in a loving and seemingly normal household.

“From that one mistake, I was given the best life. I was,” Kamiyah said last year. “I had everything I ever needed, wanted. I had love especially. I understand what she did was wrong, but just don’t lock her up and throw away the key like everything she did was just awful.”

Kamiyah, now 19, did not attend Friday’s sentencing but had asked for leniency for Williams, according to her attorney.

“Kamiyah is now processing what it means for the woman she’s known as mother to receive an 18-year prison sentence,” Justin Bamberg said, the Post & Courier reports. “However, she understands Gloria had to be held accountable for her actions. She also understands that her biological parents have the absolute right to view today as a joyous day.”

Kamiyah’s mother, however, had asked at least for the maximum possible term of 22 years in prison. If she had her way, Shanara said, Williams would have been put to death.

In a statement, Williams’ attorney Diana Johnson said they had “hoped for” a lighter sentence but nonetheless “appreciate the time and attention Judge Aho took to fully consider this matter,” according to ABC News.

Johnson said Williams was also thankful for “everyone involved in her defense as well as all of the people who either wrote letters or appeared on her behalf.”

Kamiyah’s father, Craig Aiken, told reporters after the sentencing that, with it resolved, “We can continue on our journey of healing together as a family and support our daughter on her decision making.”

Kamiyah’s mother did not comment after court, according to news reports, though others of her biological relatives expressed their joy.

According to the Post & Courier, Kamiyah still lives in Walterboro but spends time with her family in Jacksonville

After Friday’s hearing, her grandmother Velma Aiken reportedly said: “I can love my grandbaby as my own now.”

50 Years After Bill Cosby Allegedly Drugged Her, One Accuser Says, ‘We All Spoke Truth to Power’

After Bill Cosby’s conviction Thursday for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004, many of his other accusers are feeling vindicated.

For Kristina Ruehli, who alleges Cosby drugged and tried to sexually assault her in 1965, the conviction represents a watershed moment for women’s rights.

“We’ve got the snowball rolling but this is not the end.  It’s still moving,” Ruehli tells PEOPLE. “But it’s going be an avalanche. I think it will really pave the way in the future for women. We all spoke truth to power.”

On Thursday, Montgomery County jurors deliberated for about 14 hours over two days before handing down the guilty verdict. Afterward, Cosby was freed on bond by the judge.

Cosby was convicted on three charges, each of which carries a prison sentence of up to 10 years: aggravated indecent assault: penetration with lack of consent; penetration while unconscious; and penetration after administrating an intoxicant.

State law could allow a maximum possible penalty of 10 years per charge — or 30 years total, but the judge will decide whether Cosby will serve his terms concurrently or consecutively.

Cosby assaulted Constand, 45, in his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, mansion in January 2004.

Cosby, who did not testify during his trial, denies similar allegations from more than 60 women.

Ruehli was Jane Doe Number 12 in Andrea Constand’s 2005 civil lawsuit against Cosby – which Constand settled in 2006. Ruehli claims she was drugged by Cosby in December 1965 while she was a secretary at his talent agency.

In 2015, Reuhli filed a defamation lawsuit against  Cosby, claiming that public comments made about her by Cosby’s team after she and other women came forward were defamatory. After a judge denied Cosby’s motion to dismiss her case in 2016, Ruehli, feeling vindicated, withdrew her case. 

“I put my money where my mouth was – I spent nearly $ 100,000 on lawyers – to prove that I was telling the truth … about this monster,” Ruehli previously told PEOPLE. “I have stood up for myself. Now it’s time to go back to my happy life, lose some weight and weed my garden.”

Ruehli says she has put the past behind her and is feeling peaceful.

“I’m feeling a renewed faith in the justice system,” she tells PEOPLE. “I feel this is sort of confirmation in the belief systems I was taught all my life.” 

She adds, “Something in my being that always believed in right from wrong, and now I can continue to believe that given sunlight, that there is justice.”

After 27 Years, Union Plants a Flag in Tokyo

TOKYO — On Friday, men’s wear retailer Union celebrated its first new store since its Los Angeles location opened in 1991. Streetwear fans packed into the space and even spilled out into the street, where a food truck was parked to serve the crowd. Inside, DJs played and guests sipped on Coronas.
“The kind of family that this store came from that I grew out of is Stüssy, Supreme, Undefeated and Union, and there’s always been a really strong connection to Japan from early, early on,” said Union’s owner, Chris Gibbs. The Tokyo location is a franchise partnership with Jack Inc., which will also serve as the brand’s distributor in Japan. In addition, the company has been Stüssy’s local partner for over 35 years.
Gibbs believes that Union can bring something new and different to Tokyo’s already strong retail scene.
“What we do and what we’ve done for 30 years is mix all these different brands, which is not something that has traditionally happened here in Japan,” he said. “I think there’s kind of two parts to what we do, which is mixing of the brands which is not something that I think Japan really did or understood for a long time.

We Survived Waco: Witnesses Relive the Cult’s Deadly Clash With Law Enforcement 25 Years Later

Twenty-five years later, Clive Doyle has not forgotten the heat of the fire that consumed the Mount Carmel Center outside Waco Texas, on April 19, 1993 — leaving behind the bodies of 75 members of the Branch Davidian religious group.

Among the dead were 25 children and the group’s leader, David Koresh, a self-proclaimed prophet who shot himself as his home burned.

“The skin was all peeling off my hands,” Doyle, 77, recalls of the blaze that investigators said Davidians themselves set in the compound that April day. “My jacket was smoking and melting.”

The deadly inferno ended a 51-day siege of the Davidians by federal agents after a raid by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that February triggered a ferocious gun battle. Four ATF agents and six followers of the 33-year-old Koresh were killed in the shootout.

Decades later, the horror at Waco has left an indelible mark on both the Branch Davidian survivors and the law enforcement agents who were there.

“It’s not like I haven’t lived this every day of my life since then,” former FBI negotiator Byron Sage tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue.

“I don’t think we ever had the slightest control over how this thing was going to end,” Sage says. “It was all David.”

• For more on the Waco tragedy and how a new ministry is rising in the same spot, subscribe now to PEOPLE or pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday.

The standoff between authorities and the cult was complicated by its scale and by the zealotry of the Davidians, Sage says:

“We had over 120 people who were heavily armed and fortified and had been indoctrinated or brainwashed into this self-fulfilling prophesy that they were the chosen of the Lamb of God — which is what David called himself — and that they were the elect that would initiate the battle of Armageddon. The only true hostages were the children.”

What would become one of the deadliest clashes between law enforcement and citizens in American history began on Feb. 28, 1993, when ATF agents raided the Branch Davidian’s compound when reports surfaced that Koresh had been sexually abusing minors and stockpiling weapons. A fierce gunfight between agents and Koresh’s armed followers ensued.

“They were going to protect themselves. They were going to protect their property,” David Thibodeau, a Waco survivor and author of  A Place Called Waco, tells PEOPLE. “That’s just an American thing.”

Larry Lynch, then a lieutenant at the McLennan County, Texas, Sheriff’s Office, says he spoke to Koresh soon after that shooting.

“I said, ‘I know you have wounded,’ and wanted to talk about theology and I said, ‘No, let’s get the wounded out.’ But he wasn’t too interested in that,” Lynch remembers. “It was one way — it was his way. He thought he could control the situation and everyone would go away.”

Gary Noesner,  the FBI’s negotiation coordinator for the first half of the weeks-long stalemate, says authorities realized early on that “we couldn’t make a deal with anyone other than Koresh, so if Koresh was sleeping nothing got accomplished.

“He wouldn’t talk to us for days,” says Noesner, who is the author of Stalling for Time: My Life as an FBI Hostage Negotiator.

He says that while he was in charge, he was able to secure the release of 35 Davidians — but none of them were Koresh’s children. For Koresh to leave, says Noesner, he would have “had to give up his kingdom and control over his followers. At the end of the day he had to give up too much and some of the actions made it easier to resist the opportunity to come out.”

Throughout the siege, FBI negotiators tried different strategies to get the group to leave Mount Carmel, including trying to convince Koresh’s right-hand man, Steve Schneider, whose wife had a child with Koresh, to turn against him. But it didn’t work.

“He was educated,” says Sage of Schneider. “He was articulate, but he didn’t have an independence of thought or the ability to do anything without the blessing of David.”

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

As the impasse dragged on and the negotiations with Koresh waned, tanks moved in and rammed the compound. Military gas was also used in an attempt to flush the Davidians out of the building.

Some time after that, the compound went up in flames — a fire that was exactly what Koresh had prophesized.

“He preached that forces of evil were coming to get them and they would all be killed in a fiery ending and come back as the chosen, and our actions sort of validated his prophecy among his followers,” Noesner says now.

Doyle, the Davidian who was one of nine survivors at the compound, lost his daughter in the fire. He says he narrowly escaped through a whole in the wall.

Koresh along with Schneider and dozens more perished.

Though a congressional investigation later concluded the fire was intentionally started by the Branch Davidians, Koresh’s followers have denied they were responsible, instead pointing to federal agents.

“At the end of the day,” Noesner says, “The branch weren’t big evil people and neither is the government. This was a complex tragedy and there were a lot of mistakes on both sides.”

Boy with Cancer Who Took Picture With MLB Star Reunites With Him 13 Years Later as a Dodger

When Devin Smeltzer was just 9 years old, the young Philadelphia Phillies fan found himself frequently feeling the urge to go to the bathroom. Doctors would soon find a grapefruit-sized tumor pressing against his bladder, and he was diagnosed with cancer just a month before his 10th birthday.

Smeltzer, who started playing baseball when he was just 4 years old, found a bit of happiness while going through treatment when he was able to take to the field. The game of baseball gave Smeltzer a feeling of normalcy as going to crowded places like school and church were taken away because of his compromised immune system, he told Spectrum Sportsnet.

Smeltzer got his chance to mingle with major league players in 2006 when he visited Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, the home of his favorite MLB team. It was there that Smeltzer—who, at that point, had lost his hair due to chemotherapy and radiation treatment for his pelvic rhabdomyosarcoma—was able to spend time with two of the Phillies’ players, pitcher Cole Hamels, and second-baseman, Chase Utley. A picture was taken of Utley signing his autograph on a Phillies hat for an eager Smeltzer, who was then a patient at St. Christopher’s Hospital in Philadelphia.

“The picture of me and Chase has been in the living room for a long time,” Smeltzer, 22, told the news outlet. “When I go back home, it’s always very humbling to see that picture because of where I’m at today. It’s crazy to believe that I was going through such a hard time at such a young age, and how far I’ve grown.”

In the years since, Smeltzer has maintained his love of baseball, and continued playing the game when he entered college. In 2016, he was selected in the fifth round of the MLB draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers, and his cancer is now in remission, according to the LA Daily News. A year before Smeltzer’s selection in the draft, Chase Utley was traded from the Phillies to the Dodgers, where he has played ever since.

Smeltzer has since been a pitcher in the Dodgers’ farm system in the minor leagues, and during spring training this year, the team brought him into the clubhouse where manager Dave Roberts had the picture of Smeltzer and Utley in hand.

After telling the team Smeltzer’s unlikely story, Utley and the pitching prospect had a chance to reunite, more than a decade after taking their picture together in Philadelphia.

“I was able to play through it,” Smeltzer said to Utley in the Dodgers clubhouse. “I just wanted to thank you for everything you did. It means a lot.”

Smeltzer is now leading a campaign to raise funds for Katie’s Krusaders, an organization that provides financial and personal support for kids with cancer or other childhood diseases. He hopes to raise money for every strikeout he throws this season, so he can help other children who are in the same position he once was.

“It’s a pretty special and unique story with Devin,” Utley told Sportsnet of Smeltzer. “I can’t even imagine what he was going through, what his parents were going through… Hopefully, at some point, he’ll be pitching at Dodger Stadium.”
