Making friends along the way is part of the trail’s charm for Dusty Rogers and her daughter, Kate, who go on mother-daughter trips to Shawano County. They often pull into driveways to take photos and meet the owners of the barn quilts. “It leads to these amazing conversations,” Dusty Rogers said. “The first time I ever saw a barn quilt, I was blown away,” she said. Pushed by neighbors who wanted to take part, Ms. Groves worked with the Ohio Arts Council to expand the project, employing local artists to do 20 pieces, the usual number of squares in a quilt.

(Reuters) - Traders from Exxon Mobil Corp’s natural gas liquids and gasoline units have left, according to three people familiar with the matter, the latest in a stream of departures from its downsized trading operations. Last year’s historic losses and need to preserve capital prompted Exxon to limit trading and cut staff. Danielle Jamieson, a gasoline trader for Exxon, also left the U.S. team last month, according to another person and to Jamieson’s LinkedIn profile. Jamieson, who began trading gasoline for Exxon in July 2019, moved to Exxon’s Imperial Oil Ltd as national pricing manager, according to her LinkedIn. Cory Schloss, a feedstocks trader at Exxon Mobil, will take over as the lead trader for international feedstocks over the coming weeks, one person familiar with the matter said.

For all of those invested in a healthy turnout, the early numbers do not bode particularly well. Just 16,867 voters showed up on Saturday, according to the Board of Election’s unofficial tally.

Garcia out-raises field, and Adams outspends itIn the final weeks of the mayor’s race, donations have poured in to the campaign of Kathryn Garcia, a former sanitation commissioner who has risen from long shot to viable leading candidate.

CNBC reviewed records of donations from leaders on Wall Street who contributed to organizations supporting New York's Democratic mayoral candidates. Two pro-Yang groups, a super PAC and a separate 527 group, received over $3 million combined from financial executives. Wall Street executives gave more than $2 million to a super PAC backing one of their former colleagues, ex-Citigroup executive Ray McGuire. The big money donations demonstrate how important the race is to Wall Street. McGuire came into the race with many expecting the Wall Street money to largely flow toward his candidacy after his tenure at Citigroup.

Even Mr. Adams would not necessarily rank Mr. de Blasio very highly. “I have not sought his endorsement,” Mr. Adams said at a campaign stop last week, distancing himself from the mayor when asked about their relationship. “I speak with him about issues that impact the city: public safety, education, housing.”Still, some people argue that Mr. Adams should be viewed as a natural successor to Mr. de Blasio. She endorsed Mr. Adams for mayor and sees many similarities between the two men. “He’s the natural successor,” she said of Mr. Adams.

The front-runner in the race for mayor of New York City, Eric Adams, took aim at his rival Kathryn Garcia on Monday as the campaign entered its final week and a new poll showed that the two candidates were the leading contenders. Mr. Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, clearly sees Ms. Garcia as a threat: He held a news conference with sanitation workers on Monday to draw attention to allegations that women and minority workers at the city agency received unequal pay. Ms. Garcia ran the Sanitation Department until last year, when she resigned to run for mayor. Ms. Garcia, for her part, declared the mayoral contest a two-person race and defended her record. “So I guess he knows that we’re in a two-person race.”

New York City Early Voting Begins for Primary Election

Voters trickled into polling sites in New York City over the weekend to pick the next mayor in the first big test of the city’s ranked-choice voting system. The primaries in the mayoral race and other local races, including for comptroller and dozens of city council seats, take place on June 22, but early voting in all the contests began Saturday at some locations. Under the new voting system, voters can rank their top five candidates in the mayoral primary and in most other races in preferential order. She ranked five Democratic mayoral candidates. “But I ranked them because it said the city would save money if we didn’t have to go back and vote.” Ranked-choice voting avoids potentially costly runoff elections if no candidate wins the majority of votes.

Ludovic Marin | AFP | Getty ImagesWASHINGTON — President Joe Biden will press G-7 leaders to take concrete steps to counter China's rising global influence on Saturday, the second day of the annual summit. The Biden administration also plans to work with Congress to increase U.S. contributions to the G-7's Development Financing Toolkit. Biden administration aides insist that the project is not about making countries choose between the United States and China. "This is about offering an affirmative, alternative vision and approach that they would want to choose," a second administration official told reporters during a briefing on Friday. But rather than press G-7 leaders to flatly condemn China's treatment of Uyghurs, Biden will take a more diplomatic approach.

Kathryn Garcia Is Fine With Second Place

Brooklyn, N.Y.As they jostle to get ahead of each other in a crowded and anarchic primary, the Democratic candidates for New York mayor resemble a cluster of bumper cars. On other days, the lead has been with Kathryn Garcia, former head of the city’s Sanitation Department, and even Maya Wiley, who bounced close to the top of the heap this week after receiving an endorsement from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Viewed another way, no candidate in this perverse mayoral election has consistently led in the opinion polls—which this year have been desultory, even a little derelict. To be fair, the pollsters have struggled not only with canvassing opinion amid a pandemic, but also with the novel form of ranked-choice voting introduced for this election. How do you conduct a call in which you ask an already impatient stranger—finger ready to disconnect—who his second, third and fourth choices are?

In May 2018 , after a CNN investigation into sexual assault and abuse incidents by ride-hail drivers,and, each committed to releasing safety transparency reports that would disclose internal data on the most severe safety incidents on their platforms. When CNN Business asked Lyft in September 2019 about the status of the report, Lyft said it planned to release its transparency report by the end of the year. As Lyft waits, legal cases against the company continue to grow stemming from its handling of alleged sexual assault and rape incidents. The company said it alerts riders that their trip will be recorded if a driver has registered the dashcam, which may deter safety incidents from occurring.)

Eric Adams, the former NYPD captain and president of the Borough of Brooklyn, answered questions about his residency status on Wednesday, allowing local reporters to tour his Central Brooklyn home. "If I'm not at Borough Hall, I'm here," Adams, a Democrat, told reporters inside his ground-floor, red-brick home. The tour came after a Politico New York report raised serious questions about Adams' main residency, which is a requirement to be mayor of the city. Adams said he has used the New Jersey property occasionally but said the Brooklyn home is his main residence. Adams, who has criticized Yang, saying he left the city during the pandemic, was joined by his 25-year-old son, Jordan, during the tour.

Woods said he had reached out to the DOJ to encourage it to deploy people to Arizona who could more closely monitor the audit. But it's unlikely that Arizona will be the end of this: Lawmakers from several states, including Georgia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Colorado, have traveled to Arizona to observe the audit. This latest development comes on the heels of the Biden administration promising 80 million vaccine doses to be exported in conjunction with the World Health Organization's COVAX effort.

Most mayoral primaries typically feature bruising campaigns; ranked-choice was supposed to discourage that, with candidates wary of alienating each other’s base. That had largely been true this year, but the level of sniping and negative campaigning has increased in recent weeks. But the voting system also has its quirks. That is expected to take weeks, and officials have cautioned that a victor may not be declared until mid-July. “Ranked-choice voting has definitely added an unpredictability to the race,” said Ester Fuchs, a politics professor at Columbia University.
