UPCOMING TODAY:

US-CHINA TARIFFS-STATES

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. — A Chinese company’s announcement two years ago that it would spend more than $1 billion and hire hundreds of workers for a paper mill on the outskirts of this rural college town was seen as a much-needed shot in the arm for the region’s economy. By Andrew DeMillo. SENT: 1,100 words, photos.

LOSING ACES

ATLANTA — Talk about a tough day. The Las Vegas Aces lost two games — one on the court, another for refusing to take the court. The WNBA ruled the Aces must forfeit last weekend’s contest against Washington, which was called off when the Las Vegas players decided not to play because of concerns about their health and safety after 26 hours of travel. By Paul Newberry. UPCOMING: 750 words, photos by 3 a.m. EDT.
