NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Fox News Channel host Jesse Watters, who was criticized this week for saying he enjoys Ivanka Trump's voice, says he's taking a family vacation until Monday.

The New York Times reported Thursday that Watters announced he'd been gone for several days at the end of Wednesday night's edition of \"The Five.\"

Watters made the comment about Ivanka Trump on Tuesday. He criticized people booing her as she defended her father's attitude toward women while holding a microphone on stage at an event in Germany. Then he added: \"I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone.\"

The comment sparked online criticism from MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski and New York Post columnist John Podhoretz .

Watters later explained on Twitter that he was referring to Ivanka Trump's voice and how it \"resonates like a smooth jazz radio DJ.\"

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) \u2014 A jury has stripped right-wing radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones of having primary custody of his children and awarded joint custody to his ex-wife.

The Austin American-Statesman (http://atxne.ws/2oOBEd9 ) reports that state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo (nah-RAHN'-hoh) also announced Kelly Jones will decide where their three children will live.

The Travis County jury deliberated all Thursday afternoon and late into the night before returning its verdict.

In closing arguments, Kelly Jones' attorney told jurors the radio personality is a \"cult leader\" who's turning their children against his ex-wife.

Earlier, Alex Jones' attorney told the jury the children, ages 9, 12 and 14, are thriving under Jones' care and he should remain the sole caregiver.

HONOLULU (AP) \u2014 A former world kickboxing champion has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for tax fraud and other charges.

A federal judge in Hawaii sentenced 58-year-old Dennis Alexio Thursday.

A federal jury in January 2016 found him guilty of 28 counts of defrauding the U.S. Internal Revenue Service of more than $700,000 in illegally obtained tax refunds. U.S. prosecutors say he used cashier's checks to launder the money.

Another jury in September convicted him of 18 counts in an indictment alleging he used fake documents to steal nearly $200,000 in silver coins and gold bars. Prosecutors say he also stole $16,000 from an internet currency exchange company based in Boston.

Defense attorney Richard Gronna says Alexio will appeal.

Alexio co-starred with Jean-Claude Van Damme in the 1989 movie \"Kickboxer.\"

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) \u2014 The Latest on Ann Coulter's canceled appearance at UC Berkeley (all times local):

6:20 p.m.

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter says her canceled speech at the University of California, Berkeley was simply going to say federal immigration law should be enforced.

Coulter did not appear Thursday at a Berkeley rally defending her right to free speech on the day her speech had been planned, but she did make a brief appearance just after the event ended on \"Tucker Carlson Tonight\" on Fox News.

Coulter told Carlson that the talk her critics would consider \"seditious and hateful speech\" was going to be a \"searingly brilliant speech on immigration.\"

Carlson asked Coulter if she was going to call for war or violence and she said no.

___

5:45 p.m.

Authorities say a total of six people were arrested at a series of rallies over a cancelled appearance by Ann Coulter in Berkeley.

Berkeley police arrested four people Thursday, including two for resisting arrest. The others were for a drug violation and possessing a weapon.

University of California, Berkeley police made two arrests earlier in the day for possession of a knife and for obstructing an officer and wearing a mask to evade police.

Police at one point formed a human wall in the street separating groups opposed to President Donald Trump from the park where pro-Trump groups were gathered.

Later, supporters of Trump shouted \"Build that wall!\" while opponents chanted \"No wall. Sanctuary for all.\"

___

4:40 p.m.

A rally in support of Ann Coulter has wrapped up in Berkeley, and the conservative provocateur did not make an appearance despite hints from her and hopes from supporters that she might.

A handful of right-wing protesters milled around Thursday afternoon, and a small group of left-wing protesters gathered nearby. But there has so far been none of the violence or destruction that marked similar gatherings in recent months.

Vice Media co-founder Gavin McInnes, the rally's final speaker, read some of the speech Coulter intended to give and called her a hero who was censored and betrayed.

Police in riot gear are set to remain in the area and on alert if more a heated protest breaks out.

___

2:50 p.m.

Hundreds of far-right protesters, some dressed in goggles, gas masks and knee pads, are rallying in support of conservative speaker Ann Coulter in downtown Berkeley.

Some at the rally in downtown Berkeley are wearing combat gear, including military grade ballistic helmets and body armor.

Dozens of police in riot gear stand ready to crack down on violence if it erupts.

Many of the protesters have \"Build That Wall\" or \"Trump\" stickers across their helmets and several are concealing their identities wearing mirrored ski goggles over their eyes.

So far, there's no sign of opponents, or so-called anti-fascists who have violently clashed with the far-right demonstrators previously in Berkeley.

Police have arrested four people at demonstrations on and near the campus related to a canceled Coulter speech.

___

2:25 p.m.

Police have arrested four people as demonstrations continue near the University of California, Berkeley campus involving a canceled speech by commentator Ann Coulter.

Berkeley police Officer Byron White said Thursday that two people were arrested in the city; one for a drug violation and another for possessing a weapon.

University police made two additional arrests for obstructing an officer and wearing a mask to evade police, and another for possessing a knife.

Signs posted around the courtyard list 25 items that are banned, ranging from explosive devices and weapons to balls, skateboards, e-cigarettes and signs.

Dozens of demonstrators gathered near the campus and rallied to show support for free speech and condemn the views of Ann Coulter and her supporters.

___

12:20 p.m.

Dozens of demonstrators gathered near the University of California, Berkeley campus amid a strong police presence and rallied to show support for free speech and condemn the views of Ann Coulter and her supporters.

The rally Thursday ended peacefully and another was set later in the day.

Several dozen police officers surrounded Sproul Plaza on the campus and refused to let protesters enter.

The officers were clad in riot gear and carrying 40 mm launchers that shoot \"foam batons\" in case of violence.

Earlier, police mobilized on motorbikes, in armored trucks and on foot for possible violence at the rallies over Coulter's canceled appearance at the university.

Coulter says she might still show up to say hello to supporters.

Police and university officials have said they were bracing for trouble whether or not she decides to show.

___

11:55 a.m.

A few dozen supporters of President Donald Trump and conservative commentator Ann Coulter converged on a park in downtown Berkeley for a peaceful gathering as two dozen police officers looked on.

Holding American flags and wearing \"Make America Great Again\" hats, the participants talked with each other and reporters on Thursday.

There were no speeches or demonstrations at Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park during the first of several events and rallies planned throughout the day.

Earlier, police mobilized on motorbikes, in armored trucks and on foot for possible violence at the rallies over Coulter's canceled appearance at the University of California campus in the city.

Coulter says she might still show up to say hello to supporters.

Police and university officials have said they were bracing for trouble whether or not she decides to show.

___

11 a.m.

Police in Berkeley are mobilizing on motorbikes, in armored trucks and on foot for possible violence at rallies and protests over Ann Coulter's canceled appearance at the California city's university.

Far-right supporters are planning rallies Thursday to denounce what they claim is an attempt to silence their conservative views. A counterprotest by a socialist group also is planned.

Past rallies by the two sides have descended into bloodshed.

City police are preparing at Civic Center Park near campus. San Francisco Bay Area station KTVU reports (http://bit.ly/2pqjmmm ) that they have removed signs throughout the park with graphic images in support of Milo Yiannopoulos, another conservative commentator whose speech at UC Berkeley was canceled earlier this year.

The university's officers also are out in force, setting up barricades to the school's main plaza and posting signs warning that weapons are prohibited on campus.

___

9:10 a.m.

The International Socialist Organization says it will hold an \"Alt Right Delete\" rally in downtown Berkeley to show support for free speech and to condemn the views of conservative commentator Ann Coulter and her supporters.

Thursday's rally at noon comes as Gavin McInnes, founder of the pro-Trump \"Proud Boys\" has said he will speak in the afternoon at Berkeley's Civic Center Park.

He is encouraging similar groups to show up for gathering.

Another group called the Orange County Alt Right Group is planning a morning rally in the same place.

Coulter's planned speech at University of California, Berkeley, was canceled and police are preparing for possible violence by the groups with opposing political views.

___

8:20 a.m.

The American Civil Liberties Union's national legal director says \"unacceptable threats of violence\" that led to the cancellation of Ann Coulter's speech at the University of California, Berkeley are inconsistent with free speech principles that protect people from government overreach.

David Cole says hateful speech has consequences especially for people of color, LGBTQ people, immigrants and others who have been historically marginalized.

But Cole said late Wednesday the government cannot define threats to free speech because that could result in censorship.

Though Coulter's speech at UC Berkeley was canceled, far-right supporters were planning rallies Thursday to denounce what they claim is an attempt to silence their conservative views.

Police are preparing for violent outbreaks between militant factions on both sides.

___

7:05 a.m.

Ann Coulter's speech at University of California, Berkeley, has been canceled, but far-right supporters plan to hold a rally Thursday to denounce what they claim is an attempt to silence their conservative views.

KCBS reports (http://cbsloc.al/2qiK5yi ) that university police are preparing for violent outbreaks between militant factions on both sides. The speech was canceled over fears of violence.

Gavin McInnes, founder of the pro-Trump \"Proud Boys,\" says he will speak at 2 p.m. at Berkeley's Civic Center Park and is encouraging other alt-right groups to make a large showing at the gathering.

Coulter says that despite the cancellation of her speech, she might at some point still \"swing by to say hello\" to her supporters.

Police and university officials say they are bracing for possible trouble, citing intelligence and online chatter by groups threatening to instigate violence.

___

12:02 a.m.

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter says that while her speech at the University of California, Berkeley was canceled, she may still show up to say hello to her supporters.

Police and university officials say they're bracing for trouble Thursday whether or not she decides to show.

They say intelligence and online chatter by groups threatening to instigate violence over the acid-tongued Coulter has them on edge.

Coulter said in an email to The Associated Press that she might stroll across campus to greet supporters and \"stroll around the graveyard of the First Amendment.\"

University officials canceled the speech for fear violence would break out. They offered the college Republicans, who had invited Coulter, a different date and venue for the speech, but were turned down.

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) \u2014 A Mississippi sheriff's deputy is suing singer R. Kelly, alleging that Kelly had a yearslong affair with his wife that broke up his marriage.

Deputy Kenneth Bryant, who married Asia Childress in Mississippi in 2012, filed suit last week in a county circuit court in Jackson, the state capital. He's seeking unspecified damages. Bryant's lawsuit includes images of texts he says Childress and Kelly exchanged.

Representatives of the rhythm and blues crooner, whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, didn't immediately return requests for comment Thursday. Kelly hasn't yet responded to the suit.

Anna Powers, a lawyer for Bryant, said Kelly was served with the suit Saturday when he performed in Jackson. Powers said Bryant, before marrying Childress, knew she previously had a relationship with Kelly.

\"That was water under the bridge, over and done,\" Powers said. \"Our client loved his wife, wanted to work out his relationship.\"

But the lawsuit says Childress reconnected with Kelly after attending one of his concerts in October 2012, leading to multiple liaisons over more than four years.

At one point in their marriage, according to Bryant, Childress persuaded him to move to the Atlanta area, claiming it would improve her career. Bryant said he sacrificed a good job but that his wife really wanted to be closer to Kelly to pursue the affair. Kelly, 50, once lived in Atlanta part-time.

\"Each time R. Kelly would have a concert in a nearby state, Childress would disappear to unite with her lover,\" the lawsuit states. \"Time after time, R. Kelly cuckolded Bryant, with blatant disregard for Bryant's and Childress' vows.\"

Powers said that Childress has asked for a divorce, but none has been filed. Childress is a licensed public school teacher in Mississippi, but it's unclear where she now lives and she could not be reached for comment.

Mississippi is one of only a handful of states that allow spouses to sue others for breaking up their marriages in what are called alienation of affection lawsuits. The others are Hawaii, North Carolina, South Dakota and Utah.

\"R Kelly's wanton and reckless interference with plaintiff's marriage relationship, his blatant disregard for family values, and his un-condoned and unrelenting adulterous relationship with plaintiff's wife was accompanied by R. Kelly's enticement of Childress to ignore her marriage,\" the suit states.

Kelly is currently touring to promote his albums \"The Buffet,\" his 16th solo or collaborative release since 1992. His hits include \"I Believe I Can Fly,\" ''Bump N' Grind\" and \"Ignition.\" Kelly's shows and lyrics often focus on sex and infidelity \u2014 such as his Trapped in the Closet series, dealing with a web of sexual deceit.

The Grammy winner has in the past denied allegations he had sexual relationships with underage girls, although he has settled a number of lawsuits. In 2008, a Chicago jury acquitted Kelly of child pornography charges after he was accused of having sex with an underage girl and videotaping it.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 \"Keep the Change,\" a romance about a couple who meet at a community for people on the autistic spectrum, and \"Bobbi Jene,\" a documentary about an American dancer in the Israeli dance company Batsheva, were the top winners at the 16th Tribeca Film Festival.

In the awards, announced in a ceremony Thursday night, Rachel Israel's debut feature, \"Keep the Change,\" won the Founders Award for best narrative feature. The jury called it \"a heartwarming, hilarious and consistently surprising reinvention of the New York romantic comedy, which opens a door to a world of vibrant characters not commonly seen on film.\"

Tribeca co-founder Jane Rosenthal happily noted that all five feature film awards went to movies directed by women. The festival also gives an award, named after Nora Ephron, to a female director. That prize went to Petra Volpe, writer-director of \"The Divine Order,\" a drama about women's suffrage in Switzerland.

\"Bobbi Jene,\" which follows the dancer Bobbi Jene Smith as she moved back the U.S., took the best documentary award and honors for its cinematography and editing. The jury praised director Elvira Lind's film for \"pushing nonfiction intimacy to bold new places.\"

Best international feature went to Elina Psykou's Greek drama \"Son of Sofia.\"

The director of the best narrative short, Kaveh Mazaheri, for \"Retouch,\" said he was unable to attend the festival because of Republican President Donald Trump's proposed travel ban. Mazaheri, an Iranian filmmaker, said in a video message that he and his crew were unable to get visas for Tribeca. He said his absence was \"a pity\" due to Trump's \"fascinating decisions.\"

Courts have halted Trump's bid to stop immigration from six predominantly Muslim counties: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Trump has appealed the courts' rulings, saying he's trying to keep the United States safe.

SEATTLE (AP) \u2014 Michael Mantenuto, a former actor best known for his role in the Disney hockey movie \"Miracle\" and who later joined the Army, has died in the Seattle suburb of Des Moines. He was 35.

The King County Medical Examiner's Office in Seattle said Mantenuto died of a gunshot wound to the head Monday. It ruled his death a suicide.

Des Moines police says he was found in his car at Saltwater State Park in the city Monday afternoon.

Army First Special Forces unit commander Col. Guillaume Beaurpere said in a Facebook post that the Army staff sergeant will be remembered \"for his passionate love for his family and his commitment to the health of the force.\" A spokeswoman with Joint Base-Lewis McChord, where Mantenuto and his family lived, confirmed the post.

Beaurpere said Mantenuto is survived by his wife and two children.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) \u2014 A founding member of Jefferson Starship filed a lawsuit Thursday to stop some of his former bandmates from using the band's name for upcoming performances and merchandise.

Guitarist Craig Chaquico is asking a judge to prevent a new iteration of Jefferson Starship from using the name in the federal lawsuit filed in San Francisco. He claims the group has been using the Jefferson Starship name without permission, and has used his image to promote shows through early 2018.

The lawsuit said the band's members agreed to retire the Jefferson Starship name in 1985 after founding member Paul Kantner left the group.

Chaquico allowed Kantner to use the Jefferson Starship name for several years, but that right ended when Kantner died in 2016, the lawsuit said.

Jim Lenz, to a representative for the new iteration of Jefferson Starship, did not immediately respond to an emailed message seeking comment.

The band has gone through numerous iterations, starting out as Jefferson Airplane, which featured Grace Slick singing huge hits such as \"White Rabbit\" and \"Somebody to Love\" and famed guitarist Jorma Kaukonen.

Chaquico, who was discovered by Kantner, performed with Jefferson Airplane a few times before it disbanded in 1972.

Several of the band's members formed Jefferson Starship in 1974, but it broke up a decade later. Chaquico and other members then formed a new group, Starship, which recorded the hit \"We Built This City.\"

\"This case is about tarnishing the legacy of the original Jefferson Starship band,\" Chaquico said in a statement.

\"We retired the name in 1985 and we agreed that nobody would use the name again. For this band line-up to tour and call itself Jefferson Starship is woefully misleading to the public and confuses longtime fans.\"

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) \u2014 Former \"The Bachelor\" star Chris Soules \"acted reasonably\" after he rear-ended a fellow Iowa farmer by calling 911 and trying to resuscitate the man, his new legal team said Thursday.

Soules is charged with leaving the scene of a deadly accident, a felony that carries up to five years in prison, in Monday night's crash near his farm in northern Iowa that killed 66-year-old Kenneth Mosher.

Authorities say that Soules' truck rear-ended Mosher's tractor, throwing him into a ditch. Police audio shows that Soules called 911 to report that he had \"rear-ended a guy on a tractor\" and sought medical help for Mosher before he left the scene in another vehicle.

Authorities say that Soules was located at his home about 10 miles away but that he initially refused to answer his door for officers. He was arrested five hours after the crash after they obtained a warrant to enter the home. Soules was released on bond Tuesday after 10 hours in jail. Investigators are looking into who drove Soules away and whether alcohol, speed or texting played a role in the crash. The sheriff says alcoholic beverages were found at the scene and police are trying to determine who had possessed them.

Soules had been represented by attorney Molly Spellman at his initial court appearance Tuesday. But on Thursday, high-profile defense lawyer Alfredo Parrish and two colleagues from his Des Moines law firm informed the court that they are now representing Soules in the case.

A statement issued Thursday from the firm and Soules' publicist argued audio of the 911 call showed that initial portrayals of Soules having fled the scene were misleading. The statement noted that Soules identified himself on the call and \"explained his role in the terrible accident.\" It added that he tried to perform CPR on the victim and stayed until emergency medical personnel arrived \u2014 two facts that aren't clear on the call.

The call featured someone performing CPR but it wasn't clear that it was Soules, who told the dispatcher that he didn't know the technique. The call was abruptly ended by Soules, who police say then \"took off\" in a truck.

\"His attorneys are confident that once all the evidence is made public, it will show Soules acted reasonably and did everything in his power to provide aid to Mr. Mosher,\" the statement said, adding that everyone \"in this close-knit farming community is mourning Mr. Mosher's passing.\"

Soules, who is required to wear an ankle bracelet for monitoring, is due in court next week for a preliminary hearing. He is charged with violating a law that requires drivers involved in fatal accidents to remain at the scene \"except to seek necessary aid or to report the accident to law enforcement authorities.\"

The Sawmill Fire came within 8 miles of Sonoita-Elgin earlier this week, but its economic effects were starting to burn a hole in the profits of the wineries and vineyards dotting the vibrant heart of Southern Arizona\u2019s wine country.

The wineries lost more than half their customers early this week after the blaze forced Arizona Department of Transportation officials to close State Route 83 off Interstate 10 on Monday, nearly 24 hours after the blaze sparked on Sunday.

ADOT reopened the road on Thursday afternoon to cheers from vineyard operators who were bracing for a catastrophic drop in business this weekend \u2014 one of the final gasps of spring before business drops off for the summer.

\u201cThis is really, really good news,\u201d Flying Leap Vineyards founder and President Mark Beres said moments after ADOT reopened the main road into Sonoita off Interstate 10. \u201cAlmost two-thirds of our sales come on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. \u2026 Getting it reopened for the weekend should do us good. I\u2019m hopeful.\u201d

ADOT spokesman Tom Herrmann said there will be speed restrictions along Route 83 and possible lane changes while crews repair the guardrails burned in the blaze.

On Thursday, Beres said the closure had cost him 70 percent of his customers earlier in the week. The winery at 342 Elgin Road in Elgin usually sees between 40 and 60 people on weekdays, and nearly three times that on weekends. On Wednesday, just six people came into the winery, he said.

With Route 83 closed, visitors from Phoenix and Tucson had to detour nearly an hour out of their way, taking Interstate 19 to Nogales then cutting over on Route 82 through Patagonia. Another alternative: cutting through Benson.

Kelly Bostock made the trek from her Dos Cabezas WineWorks in Sonoita on Wednesday through Patagonia to get her son to Salpointe Catholic High School in Tucson. She came back via Benson.

\u201cIt took me four hours round trip. It was brutal,\u201d said Bostock, who with her husband Todd owns the winery at 3248 Highway 82.

With the road open, the drive on Friday should take about 45 minutes.

A shorter commute is not the only reason Bostock was breathing a sigh of relief that the road reopened. Like Beres, she worried that the closure would devastate sales on what is usually her busiest day. An average of 100 people a day come into Dos Cabezas on Saturdays and Sundays, she said

The 40,000-acre Sawmill Fire was still active Thursday afternoon, but ADOT\u2019s Herrmann said unless it regains strength and threatens Route 83, the road would remain open.

Even with the road open, Sonoita-Elgin wineries could see business slow down this weekend, said Beres\u2019 neighbor Kent Callaghan.

\u201cAny time this happens \u2026 it just shuts everything down for a while,\u201d said Callaghan, the owner/winemaker of Callaghan Vineyard at 336 Elgin Road. \u201cJust the idea that people know there\u2019s a fire down here even when it\u2019s over they tend to shy away. I don\u2019t know if they\u2019re thinking about it or what. It\u2019s just one of those things.\u201d

The fire could not have come at a worse time for the wineries, which depend on spring revenues to get them through the summer slow down. Business usually begins to drop off in mid-May.

Yesterday's media circus is today's documentary.

It has, recently, seemed like all the stories that once dominated our tabloids are now cramming our screens. O.J. Simpson, Anthony Weiner, Amanda Knox. It's as though we're haunted by the ghost of nightly-news past.

That's not say that many of the films haven't been good. Ezra Edelman's \"O.J. Made in America\" was a brilliant, expansive Tolstoy novel of a film. And, certainly, our media coverage and our collective slavish attention to these cases deserve continual reckoning \u2014 even if some of these films trade on the same sensationalism that got the presses humming in the first place.

Kitty Green's \"Casting JonBenet,\" a film that debuts on Netflix on Friday, returns us to the tragic, unsolved case of the child pageant queen JonBenet Ramsey, the blonde and blue-eyed 6-year-old found dead in the basement of her family's Boulder, Colorado, home on December 26, 1996.

The case and its bizarre backdrop \u2014 the world of child pageantry \u2014 brought endless speculation over her death and who might have done it. Theories abounded over her parents John and Patsy Ramsey, and even their son, Burke, who was 9-years-old at the time.

\"Casting JonBenet,\" however, is not a procedural or an investigation, and it makes no attempt to answer that sad, lurid whodunit from the '90s. Instead, it uses the Ramsey story as a prism for documenting our rabid rumor-mongering and far-away judgments of personalities hoisted onto a media stage. It is, oddly enough, about acting.

Without comment or introduction, \"Casting JonBenet\" sits us down with a number of Colorado actors who are ostensibly auditioning for a drama based on the case. Speaking into the camera, often in costume, they relate their presumptions about the case and the motivations of their would-be characters. Most are to play either Patsy or John.

All have their suspicions, most pure gossip, others more reflective. The details of the case, including the lengthy ransom note found in the home, leave plenty of room for theories of all kinds. Given the circumstances, one participant notes wisely, \"Any theory in this is kind of cracked.\"

It's a clever premise, but maybe not one that leads in profound directions. That was also an issue with another recent film that attempted to use acting as a method for finding a deeper understanding about an old media sensation. In Antonio Campos' \"Kate Plays Christine,\" the director followed one actress' attempts to get into the head of Christine Chubbuck, the 1970s TV reporter who committed suicide on the air.

Green's film is simpler than Campos', but it arrives somewhere more genuinely moving. Gradually, as the actors get closer to their roles, they begin finding empathy for the Ramseys. They go, tenderly, from hearsay to sympathy, from hypotheses of child pornography rings to speaking about their own related challenges in life. One woman speaks about being sexually abused as a girl. Another talks of alcoholic parents. A man talks about his battle with cancer.

Green culminates \"Casting JonBenet\" by filling a soundstage of rooms modeled after the Ramseys' house with the many actors all at once performing their version of events. It's a small but affecting moment of compassion, acted out long after all the drama disappeared from the tabloids.

\"Casting JonBenet\" is an unrated Netflix release. Running time: 80 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 The inaugural \"NBA Awards\" show on June 26 will include several categories voted on exclusively by the fans, including dunk of the year and performance of the year.

The NBA and TNT, which will broadcast the show, announced the categories on Thursday. They also include best style, game-winner of the year, block of the year and assist of the year.

Here's the really cool thing about Tucson's close-knit musical community: They hold hands.

Proof: On Saturday afternoon, the volunteer Civic Orchestra of Tucson is teaming up with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra to present its hugely popular instrument petting zoo.

A handful of instruments and the people who play them will set up in the courtyard of Leo Rich Theater, 260 S. Church Ave., from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 29. Kids can touch the instruments and Civic Orchestra players will explain how they work.

Admission is free and it's a bonus to the TSO's Family Series concert \u201cDusty Locks and the Three Bears\u201d being performed twice on Saturday inside Leo Rich. \"Dusty Locks\" is Tucson author Susan Lowell's Southwest recasting of \"Goldilocks,\" and TSO violist Ilona Vukovic-Gay, who leads the TSO's groundbreaking Young Composers Project, composed the music.

The TSO will perform the concert twice on Saturday, at 2 and 3:30 p.m., at Leo Rich. Admission is $18 for adults, $12 for children under 18 at tucsonsymphony.org or at the door.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Joely Fisher, the actress and half-sister of Carrie Fisher, has her own show business stories.

William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, told The Associated Press on Thursday that it had acquired her memoir, \"Growing Up Fisher,\" and would release it Nov. 14. The publisher is promising \"incredible, candid stories\" about everyone from Frank Sinatra to Ellen DeGeneres, on whose sitcom \"Ellen\" she played Paige Clark. Her other credits include the TV shows \"'Til Death\" and \"Wild Card.\"

Fisher, 49, also will write of having Eddie Fisher and Connie Stevens as her parents and how the death of Carrie Fisher, daughter of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, inspired her to write. In a statement Thursday, she described her life as an \"uproarious journey\" and herself as \"desperately flawed but funny.\"

Perhaps the greatest trick of \"Sleight \" is how its two charismatic leads magically make its clunky and overwrought elements almost disappear.

Key to this is 20-year-old Jacob Latimore, who shines in his first starring role. He plays Bo, a science whiz who performs street magic around Los Angeles. When his mom unexpectedly dies, Bo skips out on the college scholarship he earned to stay home and look after his little sister. The street-magic hustle doesn't bring in enough money, so he sells drugs on the side.

Dule Hill, deliciously playing against type, is Angelo, the local drug kingpin who brings Bo into his fold. Angelo is a classic sociopath: charming, icy and exacting. He metes out justice with bullets and a cleaver.

Bo doesn't like the drug work, but because he only sells cocaine and party pills to club kids in Hollywood, he justifies to himself that it's harmless. His challenge is to juggle his magic dreams and drug-slinging reality while protecting his sister, and Latimore embodies the tenderness, fear and determination such a balancing act requires.

Meanwhile, Bo is devoted to improving his magic skills, which are secretly aided by an electromagnet he's built into his arm.

You read that right: Bo is like a self-made Iron Man, with an electro-charged arm that can move metal objects without touching them.

\"Anyone can learn a trick,\" Bo says. \"But doing something no one else is willing to do makes you a magician.\"

This is how he explains a fierce-looking wound on his arm to his impossibly idealized girlfriend, Holly (Seychelle Gabriel). Holly is the kind of fictionalized female construct that can only exist in the male imagination: She's smitten at first glance, ripe for rescuing and willing to give her hard-earned life savings to a cute magician she just met.

She and the other female characters, including Sasheer Zamata as Bo's caring neighbor, Carmen Esposito as a seen-it-all club manager and Storm Reid as Bo's beloved little sister, aren't developed beyond their relationship to Bo.

\"Sleight\" is Bo's story, which is why Latimore's casting is crucial. His performance is so compelling that it smooths over the shortcomings in the script, direction and budget. And Hill is a hoot as a man completely off the hinges, even if he almost veers into caricature.

Though the film suffers from pacing issues that make it feel longer than its 90-minute running time, and the drug-dealing subplot is heavy-handed and stereotypical, it's a promising start for first-time director J.D. Dillard, who co-wrote the screenplay with producer Alex Theurer. Dillard is equally unafraid of gore and emotion, and the use of magic here feels fresh.

\"Sleight\" succeeds with its creation of a modern quasi-superhero in Bo and the launching of an electric new leading man in Latimore.

\"Sleight,\" a BH Tilt release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for \"language throughout, drug content and some violence.\" Running time: 90 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four.

MPAA definition for R: Restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 The Weinstein Co.'s transgender drama \"3 Generations\" has been reclassified with a PG-13 rating after the distributor made slight tweaks to the movie.

The Weinstein Co. said Thursday that it made \"some edits to the film as a compromise\" after the Motion Picture Association of America gave \"3 Generations\" an R-rating. Harvey Weinstein criticized that decision. The Weinstein Co. co-chairman has frequently battled with the MPAA over ratings, often with the benefit of generating inexpensive publicity.

\"3 Generations\" stars Elle Fanning as a teenager who is transitioning. Susan Sarandon plays the youth's lesbian grandmother, and Naomi Watts co-stars as the mother.

The LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD, which participated in the making of the film, applauded the ratings change. It called the movie \"a film that all families should be able to see.\"
