THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with GERRY GOFFIN, R.I.P.: Goffin, who collaborated with Carole King to write some of the biggest hits of the 1960s, songs that endured through generations and became classics, including “Will You Love Me Tomorrow?,” “Up on the Roof,” “One Fine Day” and “The Loco-Motion,” died on Thursday at his home in Los Angeles. He was 75. The Goffin-King had a remarkable run of Top 40 hits: The Animals had a hit with “Don’t Bring Me Down.” The Monkees recorded “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” among several. Aretha Franklin reached the Top 10 with “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman. They also had one infamous miss, 1962's "He Hit Me (It Felt Like a Kiss)".

UKRAINE: After Ukraine’s new president, Petro O. Poroshenko, told reporters in Kiev on Wednesday that he might soon order a temporary, unilateral cease-fire as part of a broader 14-point peace plan, it took all of several seconds for pro-Russian militants to rule it out.
