‘A long time coming’ Shovels dig in on symbolic start to renovations at 59-year-old campus By CHELSEA KELLNER kellner@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — Lee County High School senior Jamillah Terry recalls being forced to sit on the floor when her overcrowded psychology class ran out of desks. Senior Tazchae Medley remembers leaky roofs and overflowing storm drains around campus. Junior Anthony Bailey said

many school bathrooms are “pretty much destroyed.” With the turn of a shovel Thursday afternoon, all that is about to change. “The only time more special than breaking the ground is cutting the ribbon to open the school,” U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge said at the official groundbreaking ceremony for Lee County High School renova-

SANFORD — Lee Christian School’s boys’ basketball team was down by two points with 10 seconds left on the clock. The tension was high, and it seemed impossible that the team could steal the win from Grace Christian School. But with a 3-point shot from senior Jon Lineberry, Lee Christian scraped by with a victory. “It was kind of a once in a lifetime thing,” Lineberry said of his fondest high school memory. During his two years at Lee Christian, Lineberry, 18, made a name for himself as point guard for the Falcons.

SANFORD — Looks like some of Lee County’s nonprofits could be getting a helping hand. County commissioners voted during a budget workshop Thursday to add $57,000 in spending on a handful of ailing local nonprofits, including the Boys and Girls Clubs of Sanford/ Lee County, the Temple Theatre and Lee County Industries. Thursday’s unanimous vote was to include the “one-time” funding in the budget for the moment, although commissioners aren’t expected to pass a complete county spending plan

Lineberry Continued from Page 1A

“He was a very good player, very motivated,� head coach Don Warcup said. “He was the leader of the team. He was one of those players you don’t have to coach much.� Lineberry transferred to Lee Christian from Lee County High School for his junior and senior years and immediately jumped into athletics, joining the baseball and soccer teams in addition to the basketball team. He played basketball at Lee County High School, but he was already familiar with Lee Christian’s team when he decided to transfer. “Some of my friends went there and said it was a good school,� Lineberry said. Lineberry had some extra motivation on the court during his senior year. His grandfather always supported him at his basketball games from the time he started playing at age 6, but he died last October.

“This season I played for him and gave it my all every time I was out there,� Lineberry said. Though he said it was challenging balancing sports and academics, all of Lineberry’s hard work paid off. He recently signed to play basketball with Guilford College next year. “They have a good sports management program there, and they have a good record,� Lineberry said. Lineberry also considered Campbell University, Methodist University and Pfeiffer University, but the fact that the Guilford College Quakers have landed in the final four in their division the past two years helped seal the deal. “Not everybody gets to play college sports, so when I got the opportunity I was really excited,� Lineberry said. Warcup said he knows Lineberry’s leadership skills will help him succeed at any future endeavors he pursues. “I know he’ll do well at the next level,� Warcup said. “I’m certain of that.�

Editorial Board: Bill Horner III, Publisher • Billy Liggett, Editor • R.V. Hight, Special Projects Editor

BRAC convention worth the trip The numbers, even though they’ve fluctuated over the last couple of years, are still staggering: more than 4,000 uniformed soldiers and a support force of more than 1,000 civilian workers are expected to be moving to North Carolina as part of BRAC. BRAC — in case you haven’t picked up the lingo, it’s the acronym for the Base Realignment and Closure program of U. S. Forces Command and the U. S. Army Reserve Command — means the relocation of those forces to a new headquarters being constructed in Fort Bragg. Targeted to take place by the fall of next year, BRAC has ignited the hopes of an 11-

county region in North Carolina selected to work directly with FORSCOM in Fort McPherson, Georgia, in the relocation effort. Most, if not all, of those transferring workers and their families are expected to call some part of the 11-county region as “home.” For the fortunate final destinations, that means an influx of highly-trained military personnel and their families, as well as the support staff and civilian contract forces and their families. How many will land in Lee County? It’s impossible to say. The competition is fierce and Lee County is on the geographic pe-

rimeter of the 11-county region. It’s logical to think that many of the affected forces would prefer to be as close to Fort Bragg as possible, but spouses who need to work, children who need to be educated, and amenity needs that have to be met will play factors in the decision-making process. Ease of access will help our county’s cause. As one official pointed out, even landing 10 percent of families choosing to move here would be significant for our market. Local officials will get some kind of idea this weekend. Starting today, some 50 of them — Chamber of Commerce officials, bankers, elected officials and

representatives from schools, churches, Central Carolina Hospital and other businesses — are in Atlanta making their pitch to the affected personnel. They’ll be joined by a similarly-represented crowd from neighboring Moore County, Lee County’s partner in this unique one-time expo; while the other nine counties have made similar forays down to the area to promote, this is the first time Lee County has had this kind of chance to have the FORSCOM crowd “to itself.” No one expects BRAC to be a panacea for Lee County. But it would be foolish not to make the pitch. Stay tuned.

Fighting and fussing

R

ALEIGH — The North Carolina General Assembly has been in town for more than two weeks now, and most of legislators’ focus has been on putting together a state budget for the upcoming fiscal year. Still, it is an election year. Even if there’s not much to fuss and feud about just yet, Democrats and Republicans have perfected the art of fighting over nothing. Here are a few things that they’ve been beating on each other about: n It’s no secret that Gov. Beverly Perdue and her administration hope to win some federal grant money for public schools under what’s called the Race to the Top program. N.C. missed the target when the feds handed out the first round of grants. Republicans quickly jumped on the state’s cap on independent charter schools — schools that the Obama administration supports — as a reason. Perdue and legislative Democrats don’t want to miss again. To improve the state’s standing, they fashioned legislation creating three options to redesign 135 or so low-performing schools. The bill was dubbed “charter schools lite” when one of the options looked a lot like a charter school, minus an independent board of trustees to run it. Republicans thought the exercise a bit absurd. Every chance they got, they yelled at Democrats to take a more direct approach, to lift the cap on charter schools. More charter schools is what the Obama administration really wants, said Republican state Rep. Nelson Dollar of Wake County. Sure, but it’s not exactly what the Democrat-friendly teachers’ union wants. n Looking to shore up their election standing, legislative Democrats have been tripping over themselves coming up with tax breaks ideas for small business. The state’s budget picture isn’t pretty, but Senate Democrats scraped up $40 million to cap small business taxes at the same rate paid by larger corporations. House Democrats, following Perdue’s lead, want to provide tax credits for hiring, for providing health insurance for employees, and for investing in new equipment. Republicans call the tax breaks “gimmicks.” “Will anyone hire anyone because of that tax credit? I don’t think so,” House Minority Leader Paul “Skip” Stam said of one of the House Democrats’ proposals. Apparently the only good tax break is a Republican tax break. Or, maybe partisanship has become so intense in Raleigh that Republicans oppose even tax breaks that Democrats favor. n Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Phil Berger wants to make tax penalties go both ways. He filed a bill to require the state to pay taxpayers a penalty when the Department of Revenue fails to provide a refunds within 45 days of a tax return being filed. The Rockingham County Republican’s bill comes after two straight years in which the state has managed a budget shortfall, in part, by delaying tax returns. Berger’s bill might serve as an incentive to hurry up those returns. If not, where will the money for those penalties come from? Oh yeah, taxpayers.

Letters to the Editor Another good reason to live in Sanford To the Editor: After 58 years living in Michigan and 14 years living in Sanford, I’d like to state again: “It never would have happened this way in Michigan.” Check page 242 in the 2007 Lee County Centennial Book for other such incidents. The Thursday before the Memorial Day weekend, I was feeling a twinge of discomfort in a tooth and by Friday night, the discomfort was causing me to lose sleep. It was highly uncomfortable, but not to the point I’d call Dr. Fisher at home. So, after a Tylenol or two and careful chewing, I progressed through to Tuesday morning. Tuesday morning, I went to Dr. Fisher’s office and admitted to the receptionist I had an unscheduled tooth pain that I thought needed an X-Ray and a professional opinion. I told her the tooth was about 72 years old and maybe was just saying goodbye. I was asked to sit down and out came my files and — lo and behold — there was some room in the sequence of appointments that day. Dr. Fisher expected some “emergencies” over the weekend, so he scheduled a bit of time to handle those on the first day after the weekend. I was taken in, a root canal was performed, and I am living happily ever after. It never would have happened that way in Michigan. Thanks Dr. Fisher and staff. JOHN ALTENBURGER Sanford

Hornet’s nest of a law S

AN DIEGO — A reader demands that the media stop pussyfooting around and call the new Arizona immigration law what it is: “The Mexican Removal Act.” Too harsh? Not if you saw a recent story by a Phoenix television station that examined hundreds of e-mails exchanged between supporters of the legislation and its sponsor, state Sen. Russell Pearce.

Disappointment in president has nothing to do with party affiliation To the Editor: In response to Neil Rotter, I offer the following. Please show where I indicated any party affiliation. I did not, and I qualified my remarks to this sole incident. I am disappointed every time a person does not uphold their responsibilities in office, regardless of party. With regard to President Bush and Normandy, please find a more sacred spot to the military outside of Arlington. The cemetery where Abraham Lincoln is buried is very important and deserving of a presidential visit. President Obama is from Illinois; he should have already visited this cemetery as senator. On Memorial Day, during wartime, may not be the appropriate time. That is why I am disappointed. You bring party affiliations into this situation where none is necessary. I am not certain why; I will not assume as you have. As an independent voter, I have been encouraged to finally speak up and against those things to which I object. This is one occasion, and there will be others. The current energizing of local interest in government can have a great impact. I am not alone in my disappointment in our current leaders. I encourage everyone who can to speak up for their values. Regardless of whom you support, they must represent you. We are a republic, a representative democracy. It is time for our leaders to remember that they represent us and not themselves. MIKE NEAL Sanford

CENTRAL CAROLINA COMMUNITY COLLEGE

CCCC barber instructor named HCI’s Educator of the Year By KATHERINE McDONALD Special to The Herald

LILLINGTON (MCT) — Michael Cheek, Central Carolina Community College lead barbering instructor at Harnett Correctional Institution, has been named Educator of the Year by the Greater Crede et Vincent Jaycees Chapter of the North CaroCheek lina Junior Chamber of Commerce. Each year the chapter, located at HCI, presents an award to an instructor at the facility who has

excelled beyond expectations. Cheek recently had 19 of his students take the State Board of Barbering licensure exam and all 19 passed. That is the first time students in any barbering program in North Carolina have achieved a 100 percent passing rate on the first attempt. There are currently 34 inmate students enrolled in the barbering program, which is the only one within a North Carolina state correctional facility. “I was honored by this recognition,” said Cheek, who has been teaching at HCI for five years. Rufus Hayse, Jaycee staff advisor, presented the award to Cheek. Also at the presentation were HCI Superintendent Joseph Hall,

Assistant Superintendent for Programs Tresa Brown Tomlinson, 2010 Sandhills Regional Director for the North Carolina Jaycees Dana Kaufman, and 2010 N.C. Jaycee State President Marla Few. The HCI Jaycee chapter welcomes young inmates who work within the organization to provide service to the community and to acquire personal growth, skills and contacts essential for success in society. North Carolina is one of the few states that have active, inmate-led Jaycee chapters in correctional systems Cheek, a Sanford resident, graduated from Chatham Central High School, attended Central Carolina Community Col-

lege, and graduated from the Sanford Lee School of Barbering. He is a registered Master Barber/Barber Instructor. Before going into education, Cheek worked in Chapel Hill, where he had UNC-Chapel Hill Tarheel basketball players, such as Jimmy Black, Raymond Felton, Danny Green, Will Graves and others, as clients. He remains the barber-of-choice for many team members. Before every game, he’s on the road to cut their hair. In appreciation, he received a Championship ring and an NIT watch from the current team members. Cheek is married to the former Tonita S. Fearrington and the couple has three sons.

Talent on the Green moved to library SANFORD — Expected bad weather today has forced organizers of “Talent on the Green” to move the event from Depot Park to the Lee County Library.

tions Thursday. The event marked the official start to a two-year, $20.4 million revamping of the 59-yearold campus — a project that will include everything from roof replacement to the construction of a brand new building. Workers actually started on the project started in mid-May, making the groundbreaking more of a symbolic gesture. “Through these doors when this school is completed will pass the future, for Lee County, for North Carolina and for the nation,” Etheridge said. Richard Hayes, chairman of the Lee County Board of Commissioners, told the crowd that the project will help “sharpen our competitive edge” and present Lee County as an area that “has its priorities in order.” The Lee County Board of Education approved a

The district is one of the first in the country to take advantage of a new national initiative providing zerointerest school construction and modernization bonds to local districts, Etheridge said.

According to Etheridge’s office, the bonds initiative was recently passed into law after more than a decade of effort, and will save Lee County $2.8 million in interest on the Lee County High School renovations project alone. Parents and community members have pushed for the renovations for years. It’s why county commissioner Amy Dalrymple got involved in local politics two years ago, sweating through community meetings in the school’s non-air conditioned gymnasium as one of the founding members of the Parents for Parity activism group. At Thursday’s event, she said she was “overjoyed” to see their efforts finally bear fruit. “It brings this site into the 21st Century,” Dalrymple said. Renovations will revamp everything from windows and doors to the storm drainage system, according to the Lee County Schools website. The new building will tie into the two main classroom buildings and provide new library and administration areas, as well as classrooms and labs. Carpentry teacher

Quinlan Henry is looking forward to new paint, new doors and a longawaited dust collector for the carpentry shop. “This has been a long time coming,” Henry said. “When you look at the state of some of the buildings here, you can see that it needs it. The kids deserve better.” Principal Greg Batten recalled school employees working in offices so small they could barely fit through the door, and students drenched from walking through the rain to get to class. “Our students will not let you down — thank you for not letting our students down,” Batten told the crowd. At Thursday’s event, school board chairman Bill Tatum thanked Lee County citizens for passing the quarter-cent sales tax that also helped make the project possible. He was joined by teachers, alumni and current students, as well as fellow board members, in moving a few shovels full of dirt to mark the end of the ceremony and the start of work on the school. “I can’t wait to see what it looks like when it’s finished,” junior Anthony Bailey said.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY

STATE BRIEFS Former lawmaker selling 8,000 acres at discounted rate

Rare leatherback turtle lays eggs on N.C. beach

RALEIGH — Former U.S. Rep. Charles Taylor, ranked as one of the richest members of Congress during his 16 years on Capitol Hill, has struck a deal to sell 8,000 of forest to conservationists for a discounted $33 million. The contract announced Thursday is for a price about half its market value. But while private donations will cover a $3 million down payment and some of the remaining cost, the rest depends on state taxpayers and a cash-strapped conservation fund. The East Fork Headwaters tract along the North Carolina-South Carolina border features more than 10 miles of prime trout streams, about two dozen waterfalls and lies midway between two similarly sized state woodlands, conservation groups said. The property line runs up the side of Sassafras Mountain, which is South Carolina’s tallest peak. Owen Taylor, the conservative Republican congressman’s son, said the family wanted to sell the land as part of their estate planning, as well as to prevent it from being developed. The family planned to treat the roughly $30 million difference between the market value and the sale price as a gift for tax purposes, he said.

HOLDEN BEACH (AP) — Eggs from a rare leatherback turtle are safer on a North Carolina beach, thanks to the work of volunteers who saw the nesting turtle and moved the eggs to higher ground. The StarNews of Wilmington reported Thursday that Mary Marwitz of the Holden Beach Turtle Patrol says volunteers saw the turtle earlier this week. She estimated the turtle at 6-feet-long and 800 pounds. Marwitz watched the turtle for about 30 minutes early Tuesday until she went back out to sea. Volunteers then moved about 70 eggs to an area away from the high tide line. They staked off the nest to alert beachgoers and added grates and fox cages to stop predators from eating the eggs. Leatherbacks are the largest living reptiles in the world and are endangered. Marwitz says they usually prefer to nest farther south than North Carolina.

Police look to exhume body in murder trial

DURHAM (AP) — Police plan to exhume the body of a woman killed five years ago in her North Carolina home as officials move forward with a case against her husband. Multiple media outlets reported Thursday that the family of Janet Abaroa will allow the remains to be exhumed from a Pennsylvania grave. A call to the Durham Police Department was not immediately returned. Abaroa was 25 years old and pregnant when she was fatally stabbed April 26, 2005. In February, police arrested her husband, 35year-old Raven Abaroa, in southern Idaho and charged him with murder.

Hometown firm wins award to finish Raleigh loop

RALEIGH (AP) — A hometown firm is the winner for the award to complete the outer loop around North Carolina’s largest city. Gov. Beverly Perdue announced Thursday that Blythe Construction of Charlotte was awarded the contract to build the last five miles of Interstate 485. The state would pay for the $160 million project using a new financing method announced last fall by Perdue called “design-build finance” that she says will save taxpayer money. The state will pay Blythe over 5 1/2 years even though the project will be completed in 4 1/2 years.

Education Board approves national standards RALEIGH (AP) — The State Board of Education has adopted national standards for math and English for public school students, making North Carolina the fifth state to do so. A spokeswoman for the state Department of Public Instruction says the board voted Thursday to approve the new standards, which are designed to help students improve analytical thinking. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported the National Governors Association and state school superintendents led the effort to develop standards that they said would make U.S. students more competitive with students from other countries. The standards would mean that students across the country are learning the same subjects. Just a handful of states have refused to consider adopting them.

N.C. newspaper denied access to military hearing FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — Experts say Fort Bragg likely violated the First Amendment when it sought to prohibit reporters from identifying accusers at a soldier’s arraignment. The Fayetteville Observer reported it was denied access to Wednesday’s arraignment of Spc. Aaron Pernell because its reporter refused to agree to the rule on identifying accusers. The 22-year-old Pernell faces charges including rape and burglary. The Observer doesn’t publish names of victims of sexual crimes. But Pernell faces charges other than sex crimes. The arraignment was open to other members of the public without restriction. Legal experts say reporters are guaranteed the same rights.

House OK’s nearly $19B budget RALEIGH (AP) — The state House gave initial approval Thursday to a state budget that tries to preserve more public school jobs than the Senate’s version but delays how to handle a potential half-billion shortfall coming from Congress. The chamber voted in a largely party-line vote of 62-55 in favor of an $18.9 billion budget that was billed by Democrats as an austere plan for 2010 and by Republicans as one that leaves the state unprepared for a $3 billion shortfall in 2011. A second and final vote was expected just after midnight, setting up negotiations ahead with the Senate to get a plan to Gov. Beverly Perdue before July 1. House members debated more than six hours and considered more than

30 amendments to the budget, which Democrats said reduces spending by 3.5 percent compared with the plan already in place for the coming fiscal year. The University of North Carolina system would have to find another $139 million in spending cuts at its campuses and central office compared with the Senate plan. Public schools would benefit from $90 million more in North Carolina Education Lottery profits than the Senate used to preserve what House Democrats say are 1,600 positions in the classroom statewide. The lottery spending, billed as temporary, would represent the most marked changes to how revenues are distributed since the lottery became law in 2005. “This is a budget that I think everybody can sup-

port,” said House Majority Leader Hugh Holliman, DDavidson, at the debate’s close. “This bill does protect teachers. I had to swallow real hard to redo the lottery distributions.” But four Democrats joined Republicans in voting against the budget. Rep. Sandra Spaulding Hughes, one of the four, said the plan doesn’t do enough to protect in-home personal care services for Medicaid patients, historically black universities and the public schools. “We need to pull money from wherever we need to pull it to provide the proper funding for our teachers and our assistants in the classroom,” said Hughes, a retired educator from New Hanover. While the bottom-line figure for the House plan is less than both the Senate

plan approved two weeks ago and Gov. Beverly Perdue’s plan unveiled in April, Republicans argued that the spending is actually higher than what Perdue is on track to spend this year because she held back on money in this year’s budget to narrow a revenue shortfall. “We think that they fall far short for what we need to do to prepare for next year and what we think will be a protracted strained economy,” said Minority Whip Thom Tillis, D-Mecklenburg. Next year, federal stimulus money runs out and temporary income and sales tax increases will expire. Democratic budget writers who have worked for two months fashioning cuts lashed out at Republicans who have suggested spending should fall by an additional $450 million.

EDUCATION

Perdue, Obama official push for school funds DURHAM (AP) — U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan and two top North Carolina Democrats warned Thursday that without federal funds, thousands of teachers would be laid off in the coming weeks. The jobs of 10,000 North Carolina teachers are at risk among 300,000 nationwide, Duncan said, as recession-hit state and local governments struggle to meet requirements

to balance their budgets. Layoffs seem likely without federal support, Duncan said during a visit to Durham’s Southern High School with Gov. Beverly Perdue and U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge, D-N.C. Duncan and Etheridge said a $23 billion education jobs fund proposed in Congress was needed to keep teachers in the classroom and off the unemployment rolls at a time the economy

remains fragile. “We are strongly urging Congress to take action and take action this month,” Duncan said. “I don’t have a Plan B. Plan B is children around the country are going to get hurt.” A spokesman for the state Republican Party did not immediately return a call seeking comment. With billions more in federal education dol-

lars at stake, Perdue and others lobbied Duncan to note the state’s efforts to claim a share of the U.S. Education Department’s “Race to the Top” grants. “Race to the Top came up frequently” during the meeting that also included state schools superintendent June Atkinson, said state said Sen. Floyd McKissick Jr., D-Durham, who said he also attended.

Budget

funding as grant money and donations dried up in the economic recession, leaving government leaders to wrangle over which groups are most deserving of taxpayer dollars. Lee County Industries helps connect individuals with disabilities to gainful employment, while The Helping Hand Clinic helps low-income locals with their various medical needs. HAVEN, meanwhile, provides safety and support for victims of domestic or sexual violence. Hayes described the supplementary funding as a tool to help the nonprofits “turn the corner” and become self-sufficient during the recession. “This is not something to be expecting necessarily in the future,” Hayes said. Thursday’s vote came despite complaints from Shook, who took issue with what she described as the possibility of HAVEN spending some of its money to care for illegal immigrants. Shook said she would not support the county making contributions to the nonprofit if that is the case. “It comes down to a question of should the

taxpayers be supporting that,” she said. Commissioner Jamie Kelly argued the nonprofit’s case should not be hurt by such details of who it assists. “If I was in that line of business and if somebody came to my door that was battered, beaten or abused, I really wouldn’t care if they’re illegal or not,” Kelly said. Shook said she wants additional information about nonprofits’ spending priorities before she OKs any funding, although a majority of commissioners backed Hayes’ requests despite her reservations. The county debate comes at a time when Sanford city officials are pondering the same dilemma and a policy for how to handle future requests from nonprofits.

City leaders have expressed some support for chipping in with nonprofits, pointing to yearly expenditures on popular tourist destinations like the Temple as reasoning for government becoming involved with nonprofit budgets. The Sanford City Council has also not finalized a budget as of today, although the panel will meet in a special session at 1 p.m. Wednesday. The Board of Commissioners’ next scheduled meeting is set for 3 p.m. Monday, although County Manager John Crumpton said he does not expect a spending plan be passed until the board’s June 21 meeting. Officials must have a balanced budget approved before the July 1 start of the 2010-2011 fiscal year.

until June 21. The money would be part of a still in-the-works budget of $60.6 million that comes with no recommended increase on the county’s 75 cents per $100 of property valuation tax rate. Commissioner Linda Shook said she voted for the motion Thursday with the understanding that the board can make changes to those funding amounts at any time during the budget process. Thursday’s vote, which was taken without the absent Robert Reives, came at Board of Commissioners Chairman Richard Hayes’ request to allot $20,000 for the Boys and Girls Clubs, $10,000 for Lee County Industries, $12,000 for the Temple, $5,000 for The Helping Hand Clinic and $10,000 for HAVEN, or Helping Abuse and Violence End Now. Hayes said the expenditures could be made more “palatable” by a surplus of about $45,000 in local ABC Board revenue. Local nonprofits have pleaded for emergency

ECONOMY

Obama, Arizona Gov. Brewer meet

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Facing off over illegal immigration, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer told President Barack Obama that Americans â&#x20AC;&#x153;want our border securedâ&#x20AC;? and called Thursday for completion of a separating fence. Obama underscored his objections that the tough immigration law she signed is discriminatory. Meeting in the Oval Office, Obama said Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s law and similar efforts by more than 20 states would interfere with the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility to set and enforce immigration policy. Neither side appeared to give ground on the contentious issue although both talked about seeking a bipartisan solution. Obama urged her to â&#x20AC;&#x153;be his partnerâ&#x20AC;? in working toward a comprehensive overhaul of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s badly fractured immigration system. The unusual meeting between the president and the governor was a byprouct of Brewerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to sign a first-of-its-kind law requiring police enforcing other laws to check immigration status if there is reason to believe someone is in the country illegally. The law also makes being here illegally a state crime. Brewer sought the meeting and Obama, who has denounced the law, accepted.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is seen through a fence as she arrives for a private meeting with President Barack Obama at the White House in Washington, Thursday. Emerging from the halfhour Oval Office session, Brewer said Obama had assured her that most of the 1,200 National Guard troops he is sending to the U.S.-Mexico border would be going to her state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He assured us that the majority of those resources would be coming to Arizona,â&#x20AC;? she told reporters on the White House driveway. Brewer said she and Obama, at odds over how to control illegal immigration, also agreed to try to work together on solutions. She said White House staff would visit Arizona in a couple of weeks to continue the â&#x20AC;&#x153;very cordial discussionâ&#x20AC;? she had with the president. Outside the White House, hundreds of protesters, as unhappy with

the law as they are with Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broken promise to overhaul a system he and others say is broken, noisily greeted the Republican governor as she arrived for the meeting. Nearly 200 people walked in a circle on the pedestrian-only portion of Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House â&#x20AC;&#x201D; holding signs, chanting â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jan Brewer, shame on you!â&#x20AC;? beating drums and, in the case of one man, strumming a guitar. The Arizona law is scheduled to take effect July 29, unless it is blocked by a court under pending legal challenges. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Justice Department also is reviewing whether the law violates civil rights, with an eye toward a possible court challenge of its own. Brewer has said she

signed the law because she believes Washington had failed to do its part to protect the U.S.-Mexico border. More than 20 states are considering similar legislation, according to the Immigration Policy Center. The first of its kind in the U.S., Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s law has earned Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condemnation, sparked boycotts of Arizona and returned the emotionally and politically charged immigration issue back to the forefront of the national conscience. Obama has called Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s law a â&#x20AC;&#x153;misdirected expression of frustrationâ&#x20AC;? at the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inability to act. The president favors a comprehensive approach that would both tighten access to the border and help millions of illegal immigrants in the U.S. become citizens. Some Republicans, including Brewer and Arizona Sens. Jon Kyl and John McCain, want tighter border controls first. Obama has been more outspoken on the issue in recent weeks, restating a desire to enact a comprehensive overhaul but also reminding advocates that Democrats only have 59 votes in the Senate â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one vote short of the number needed to overcome GOP stalling tactics.

ELECTION 2010

White House defends dealmaking in races

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The White House scrambled Thursday to explain new revelations of political dealmaking, defending attempts to steer state primary races but saying the president was unaware an aide had urged a Colorado Democrat to seek a federal job rather than run. With Republicans denouncing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chicago-style politicsâ&#x20AC;? and accusing President Barack Obama of breaking his cleanpolitics promises, White House aides mustered a multi-pronged response. The White House has the

right to try to avoid messy Democratic primaries, they said, but Obama leaves the details to underlings. They also offered more information about the Colorado Senate matter after being accused of trying to hush a similar Pennsylvania episode that broke wider open last week. Presidents, as leaders of their parties, â&#x20AC;&#x153;have long had an interest in ensuring that supporters didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run against each other in contested elections,â&#x20AC;? press secretary Robert Gibbs said. But when it comes to personally persuading a candidate to step aside, he said, Obama â&#x20AC;&#x153;is not aware of the individual circumstances.â&#x20AC;? Political insiders say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s naive to think that presidents and other top officials of both parties donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sometimes try to help the strongest candidates win nominations with a minimum of cost and trouble. Nonetheless,

even Obama supporters agree that the latest revelations could dent his claims to run a more transparent government and his ability to focus on issues such as the Gulf oil spill and the economy. The episodes also fuel growing public resentment of Washington-centered, top-down politics. Voters in several states have rejected establishment candidates from both parties this year, nominating insurgents with grassroots pedigrees. For the second time in a week, the White House acknowledged that a top Obama associate had urged a potential Democratic Senate candidate to accept a federal position rather than challenge the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preferred nominee. The first case involved an unsuccessful bid to the clear the Pennsylvania primary path for Republicanturned-Democratic Sen.

Arlen Specter. The White House acknowledged last Friday that it had turned to former President Bill Clinton to urge Rep. Joe Sestak to stay in the House and accept an unpaid presidential advisory post rather than challenge Specter. Sestak declined, and defeated Specter in last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Senate primary. The White House acknowledged Thursday that it had contacted former Colorado House Speaker Andrew Romanoff about possible administration jobs in hopes that he would not challenge Sen. Michael Bennet in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aug. 10 Senate primary. Both the White House and Romanoff said there was no job offer, and Romanoff remains in the race. Gibbs said Romanoff had applied for a position at the U.S. Agency for International Development during the transition period before Obama took office in January 2009.

Job hopes rise on flurry of reports WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Fewer people are filing claims for unemployment aid, new jobs are showing up in service industries, and companies are squeezing all they can from lean staffs and may need to hire soon. Hopes for the job market brightened Thursday ahead of a closely watched report on the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employment picture â&#x20AC;&#x201D; although experts cautioned that the economy probably isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t creating jobs as quickly as usual after a recession. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While we will see a period of job growth, it is going to take a long time to get back the jobs we lost,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Analytics, who predicts the nation will not recover the 8 million jobs lost in the downturn until 2013. Zandi says it will take until 2015 to get back to full employment, which he defined as a jobless rate of around 5.5 percent. Economists predict the May jobs report, due out Friday morning, will show the nation added 513,000 jobs in May. But most of them, as many as 400,000 by some estimates, will be temporary government jobs to help with the census. The unemployment rate is expected to fall slightly, to 9.8 percent from 9.9 percent. While analysts say layoffs will keep tapering off and companies will gradually hire more, a lack of strength throughout the economy complicates the recovery. Americansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; appetite for spending has eased. Manufacturing output has been strong, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mostly because businesses are replenishing their stockpiles after slashing them during the recession. Unless Americans pick up the pace on spending, manufacturing could fizzle. And consumer habits are closely tied to employment and wage growth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a very mixed picture at the moment,â&#x20AC;? said Nigel Gault, chief U.S. economist for IHS Global Insight. Gault said the economy is probably growing slightly faster now than in the first quarter of the year, but the boost is coming from temporary fac-

tors, like the homebuyer tax credit that expired at the end of April. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a very soft recovery compared to what you would normally see after such a deep recession,â&#x20AC;? Gault said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The financial crisis did bad things to balance sheets, and people are still working off the problems of that excess debt.â&#x20AC;? Hiring may pick up if businesses find they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wring more work out of thinner ranks. Productivity grew in the first quarter at the slowest annual pace in a year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 2.8 percent, the Labor Department said Thursday. A separate report Thursday showed firsttime claims for unemployment aid fell for a second straight week. Still, the decline came after a sharp increase three weeks ago. And claims, considered a measure of how willing companies are to hire, remain at elevated levels. The four-week average of jobless claims is down only slightly from midJanuary. The service sector, a broad category ranging from construction to retail to health care, accounts for about four of every five U.S. jobs outside of farms. It expanded in May for the fifth month in a row. And the Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing executives that monitors the industry, said its jobs measure rose for the first time in more than two years. Employers â&#x20AC;&#x153;are now starting to feel a bit more confidence as far as bringing back some jobs,â&#x20AC;? said Anthony Nieves, a Hilton Worldwide executive who serves as chairman of ISMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s non-manufacturing business survey committee. Economists still worry that the service sector, like most sectors outside of manufacturing, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expanding fast enough. Adding to the picture of a slow recovery were reports Thursday showing modest increases in factory orders and retail sales. More orders came in to U.S. factories in April, particularly for commercial aircraft, the government said. But the increase was smaller than in March, and orders outside of transportation actually fell, the worst showing in about a year.

NATION BRIEFS Church sues over pages ripped from sacred Bible

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Armenian church has sued the J. Paul Getty Museum to demand the return of seven pages ripped from a sacred Armenian Bible dating back to 1256. The Western Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church of America filed the lawsuit Tuesday in Los Angeles. The lawsuit alleged the church had the Bible authenticated in 1947 or 1948 and it was returned with the pages missing. It states the identity of the thief was never determined. A spokeswoman for the Getty said the museum legally acquired the pages, which is known as the Canon Tables, in 1994 from an anonymous private collector â&#x20AC;&#x153;after a thorough review of their provenance.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A notable Armenian scholar who also was the primate of the Armenian Church of America acknowledged key details about the Canon Tablesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; provenance in a 1943 article, including the fact that they were owned by an Armenian family in the United States,â&#x20AC;? spokeswoman Julie Jaskol said. The seven illustrated pages by Tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oros Roslin were once part of the handwritten Armenian Bible known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zeytâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;un Gospels.â&#x20AC;? The rest of the sacred book is located at the Mesrob Mashotots Madenataran museum in Yerevan, Armenia.

Calif. car dealer who hexed prosecutors sentenced

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Authorities say a used car dealer is headed to prison for fraud, despite attempting to place a voodoo hex on prosecutors handling his case in Los Angeles. Thirty-four-year-old Ruben Hernandez was sentenced Wednesday to 12 years after being convicted of using false Social Security infor-

mation and bank statements to buy properties. Hernandez was arrested in February 2009 after being a fugitive for a year. Authorities searching his home found a shrine with voodoo dolls dunked headfirst in cups of water with pins in their eyes. Officials say the case number and names of the prosecutor and investigators were written on the dolls. Hernandez was convicted in May on four counts of filing a false application and three counts of grand theft. He was ordered to return to court next Wednesday to face 28 additional counts.

Stocks extend gain to second day ahead of jobs report NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Stocks closed higher for a second day Thursday after traders found room for optimism in mixed economic reports. The Dow Jones industrial average rose about 6 points a day after leaping 226. It was the first back-to-back gain for the Dow since late April. Stocks climbed on reports that business at the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s services companies grew in May and that the number of people seeking first-time jobless claims slipped for a second week. The gains faded at times as the day wore on, but stocks recovered by the close as traders looked to the Labor Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s May jobs report on Friday. The employment report is the most closely watched item on the economic calendar. Economists predict that employers added 513,000 jobs in May. It would be the biggest jump in 26 years, but as many as 300,000 of the workers hired in May were expected to be temporary positions to help conduct the U.S. census. Still, even temporary hiring could bring a bump in consumer spending. The economic news gave a boost to much of the market but energy stocks posted some of the biggest gains

after the price of oil rose. Range Resources rose more than 6 percent, while Noble Energy added more than 5 percent. Stocks have moved erratically in the past week after major indexes hit new trading lows for the year on May 25. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still not clear whether the market has finished a slide that began in late April after stock indexes touched their highest points of the year. The Dow rose 5.74, or 0.1 percent, to 10,255.28. The Dowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two-day gain of 231 points, or 2.3 percent, was the first since April 28-29.

Cannabis caravans fuel medical pot boom in Montana HELENA, Mont. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As Bob Marley music wailed in the next room, the makeshift clinic hummed along like an assembly line: Patients went in to see a doctor, paid $150 and walked out with a recommendation that they be allowed to buy and smoke medical marijuana. So it went, all day, at a hotel just blocks from the state Capitol that was the latest stop of the so-called cannabis caravan, a band of doctors and medical marijuana advocates roaming Montana that has helped thousands of patients apply for medical marijuana cards from the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re helping end suffering on this planet for human beings,â&#x20AC;? clinic organizer Jason Christ said as he sat outside the hotel in an RV filled with pot smoke. To the dismay of state medical authorities and lawmakers, the caravans have helped the number of pot cardholders in Montana swell over the past year from about 3,000 to 15,000. Christâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group, Montana Caregivers Network, will take the caravan out of Montana later this month for the first time, with clinics scheduled in three Michigan cities: Detroit, Kalamazoo and Lansing.

Upbeat Blagojevich goes on trial for corruption CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Like a candidate still running for office, a smiling and jovial Rod Blagojevich waded into the crowd waiting outside his corruption trial â&#x20AC;&#x201D; making upbeat statements, hugging and shaking hands with supporters holding signs. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not on a ballot anymore, though, and the only voters that matter are the 12 people who will be chosen from the potential jurors who the judge began questioning Thursday as the trial kicked off. They will decide if the former Illinois governor tried to sell President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former Senate seat and leverage his power into a moneymaking enterprise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel great,â&#x20AC;? said Blagojevich, as he worked the crowd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The truth shall set you free,â&#x20AC;? he told one well-wisher as he shook the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand. Since being ousted from office, Blagojevich has pleaded his innocence to the public on radio, in comedy shows and in a book, often playing the lovable goof. For one reality show, his wife went in his stead â&#x20AC;&#x201D; making an impression on one potential juror, who told the judge she had seen Patti Blagojevich on TV eating a bug. Blagojevich himself was â&#x20AC;&#x153;on some kind of reality show, too,â&#x20AC;? she said. But the judge clearly tried to steer clear of political opinions. Some 18 months after FBI agents arrested him at his home at dawn, Blagojevich arrived at federal court, holding hands with Patti. He

Of no more than 10 bystanders, three or four were vocal supporters. Blagojevich appeared to display at least a hint of anxiety at one point after walking through a metal detector, fumbling with and dropping his wallet several times as he retrieved it from a basket. In the courtroom, he took his place at a separate defense table from his brother and codefendant, and sat with his attorneys to size up a pool of potential jurors for his corruption trial. They included a math teacher, an ex-Marine and a former precinct captain who said she would ask â&#x20AC;&#x153;for guidance from my heavenly fatherâ&#x20AC;? in deciding guilt or innocence.

questions he asked was whether they had read much about the case and whether they could set aside any preconceived notions about Blagojevich. Jurors were referred to in the courtroom by numbers only, starting with 101, the math teacher. Zagel plans to keep the jury anonymous until after the trial. Zagel had denied a request from five news organizations, including The Associated Press, to reverse that, saying the motion came too late because he had already told the jurors that their names would not be released until the verdict. Once he got started, Zagel was brisk in his questioning and kept the mood light. Potential Juror 107 was a middle aged electrical engineer, a veteran of the Marine Corps who said he doubled as a manager and technical supporter for his wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is she a difficult employer?â&#x20AC;?

BP cuts pipe, plans to lower cap By GREG BLUESTEIN Associated Press Writers

METAIRIE, La. — BP sliced off a pipe with giant shears Thursday in the latest bid to curtail the worst oil spill in U.S. history, but the cut was jagged and placing a cap over the gusher will now be more challenging. BP turned to the shears after a diamond-tipped saw became stuck in the pipe halfway through the job, yet another frustrating delay in the six-week-old Gulf of Mexico spill. The cap will be lowered and sealed over the leak, said Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the government’s point man for the disaster. It won’t be known how much oil BP can siphon to a tanker on the surface until the cap is fitted, but the irregular cut means it won’t fit as snugly as officials hoped. “We’ll have to see when we get the containment cap on it just how effective it is,” Allen said. “It will be a test and adapt phase as we move ahead, but it’s a significant step forward.” Even if it works, BP engineers expect oil to continue leaking into the ocean. The next chance to stop the flow won’t come until two relief wells meant to plug the reservoir for good are finished in August. BP Chief Executive Tony Hayward promised the company would clean up every drop of oil, and “restore the shoreline to its original state.” “We will be here for a very long time. We realize this is just the beginning,” Hayward said Thursday. This latest attempt to control the spill, the so-called cut-and-cap method, is considered risky because slicing away a section of the 20-inchwide riser removed a kink in the pipe, and could temporarily increase the flow of oil by as much as 20 percent. Hayward conceded the attempt was risky, but said the risk was reduced when the pipe was cut away. Live video footage showed oil spewing uninterrupted out of the top of the blowout preventer, but Allen said it was unclear

A bird covered in oil flails in the surf at East Grand Terre Island along the Louisiana coast Thursday. Oil from the Deepwater Horizon has affected wildlife throughout the Gulf of Mexico. whether the flow had increased. “I don’t think we’ll know until the containment cap is seated on there,” he said. “We’ll have to wait and see.” President Barack Obama will return to the Louisiana coast Friday to assess the latest efforts, his third trip to the region since the April 20 disaster. It’s also his second visit in a week. The White House said the federal government was sending BP a $69 million bill for costs so far in the spill. Spokesman Robert Gibbs said the bill was the first to be sent to the oil company, which leased the rig that exploded April 20 and sank two days later. Eleven people were killed. So far, anywhere between 21 million and 46 million gallons of oil has spewed into the Gulf, according to government estimates. Computer models show oil could wind up on the East Coast by early July, and even get carried on currents across the Atlantic Ocean, by Bermuda and toward Europe. The models showed oil entering the Gulf’s loop current, the going around the tip of Florida and as far north as Cape Hatteras, N.C. Researchers with the National Center for Atmospheric Research cautioned that the models were not a forecast, and it’s unlikely any oil reaching Europe would be harmful. Oil drifted six miles from the Florida Panhan-

dle’s popular sugar-white beaches, and crews on the mainland were doing everything possible to limit the catastrophe. Forecasters said the oil would probably wash up by Friday, threatening a delicate network of islands, bays and beaches that are a haven for wildlife and a major tourist destination dubbed the Redneck Riviera. Officials said the slick sighted offshore consisted in part of “tar mats” about 500 feet by 2,000 feet in size. Mark Johnecheck, a 68-year-old retired Navy captain from Pensacola, sat on a black folding chair as rough surf crashed ashore at Pensacola Beach and children splashed in the water. Johnecheck has lived in the Pensacola area since the 1960s, but doesn’t come to the beach very often. “The reason I’m here now is because I’m afraid it’s going to be gone,” he said. “I’m really afraid that the next time I come out here it’s not going to look like this.” He said the arrival of the oil seems foregone: “I don’t know what else they can do,” he said. “It just makes you feel helpless.” His wife walks up and becomes emotional thinking about the oil. “It’s like grieving somebody on their dying bed,” said Marjorie Johnecheck, 62. Next to her chair is a small white pail full of sugary Panhandle sand. She will take it home and put it

in a decorative jar. “I’m taking it home before it gets black,” she said. County officials set up the booms to block oil from reaching inland waterways but planned to leave beaches unprotected because they are too difficult to defend against the action of the waves and because they are easier to clean up. Anne Wilson, a 62-yearold retired teachers aide who has lived in Pensacola Beach for the last year and a half, felt helpless. “There’s nothing more you can do,” said Wilson, who lived in Valdez, Alaska, near the Exxon spill in 1989. “It’s up to Mother Nature to take care of things. Humans can only do so much.” Florida’s beaches play a crucial role in the state’s tourism industry. At least 60 percent of vacation spending in the state during 2008 was in beachfront cities. Worried that reports of oil would scare tourists away, state officials are promoting interactive Web maps and Twitter feeds to show travelers — particularly those from overseas — how large the state is and how distant their destinations may be from the spill. The effect on wildlife has grown, too. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reported 522 dead birds — at least 38 of them oiled — along the Gulf coast states, and more than 80 oiled birds have been rescued.

48 advance to semifinals of Spelling Bee WASHINGTON (AP) — Neetu Chandak had trouble catching her breath after learning Thursday she had made the next round of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. To burn off some of the energy, she starting playing peek-a-boo with her 6-month-old cousin. “My heart’s, like, beating,” she said, fanning her face with both hands. “I’m not sure if anybody can hear me. I’m thinking, ’What if I don’t make it?”’ The 14-year-old from Seneca Falls, N.Y., in the green blouse with glittering butterflies had no reason to worry. She tackled both of her words with ease and became one of 48 spellers to advance to the semifinals. The semifinalists are all that remain from the 273 competitors from across the U.S. and around the world who gathered for the three-day competition. The champion, who wins an enormous trophy and more than $40,000 in cash and prizes, will be crowned Friday night in prime-time on national television. Each of the spellers — ranging in age from 8 to 15 — got to spell two words onstage under the bright lights of the Grand Hyatt ballroom. The results were combined with a written test taken Wednesday to determine the semifinalists.

Emptier cells: Jail population declines first time WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation’s local jail population is declining for the first time since the federal government began keeping count, reflecting what some experts say is a growing belief that jails are housing too many people who do not belong there. The number of inmates in county and city jails was about 767,600 at the end of last June, down by nearly 18,000 inmates from a year earlier. Growth in the U.S. jail population has been slowing since 2005. The latest total was down 2.3 percent and represented the first decline since the Bureau of Justice Statistics began its annual survey of jails in 1982. The reversal took place as crime in the United States fell dramatically. Violent crime fell 5.5 percent last year, and property crime was down 4.9 percent, the third straight year of declines. The drop in local jail populations, like the crime decline, coincided with the economic downturn that has taken a heavy toll on city and county budgets. The report found population declines at two-thirds

Obama can boost intel boss’s job. Does he want to?

WASHINGTON (AP) — CIA Director Porter Goss held what amounted to a wake for his own job in 2005, when a newly appointed national intelligence director took the helm of the country’s far-flung intelligence network. Eight former CIA directors gathered at the agency’s headquarters to commemorate the times when they were still in charge. The funeral, it turns out, was premature. Five years later, the CIA director is still effectively the nation’s premier intelligence job. And even as President Barack Obama is close to naming the fourth director of national intelligence, that post has yet to live up to its powerful job description. The centralized authority that was supposed to help fix the problems that led to 9/11 has been divided among powerful figures at the CIA and White House, including CIA Director Leon Panetta and homeland security adviser John Brennan. And the Office of the Director of National Intelligence has largely become just another agency in the convoluted intelligence business. Obama’s choice of director will signal his vision for the job.

Publishers see signs the iPad can restore ad money NEW YORK (AP) — Good news for the news business: Companies are paying newspapers and magazines up to five times as much to place ads in their iPad applications as what similar advertising costs on regular websites. This doesn’t mean Apple’s tablet computer will live up to its hype as a potential lifeline for the media industry. Online ads still generate a small fraction of news companies’ advertising revenue, and it’s an open question whether print ads will return to what they totaled before the recession. But early evidence suggests the iPad is at least offering publishers a way to get more money out of advertisers. That bolsters the hope that portable touchscreen computers could start turning the economics of digital advertising in publishers’ favor. “I think it will redefine publishing and also redefine how advertisers connect with our audience,” said Lou Cona, executive vice president at Conde Nast Media Group, the privately held publisher of such magazines as Vogue, GQ and Wired.

‘Banks’ allow members to pay with time, not cash ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — No money? No problem! Pay with time, instead. Scores of time banks are being started in hard-hit communities around the nation — and thousands of devotees are helping each other survive tough economic times. It’s a modern twist on the ancient practice of barter. In a time bank, members get credit for services they provide to other members, from cooking to housekeeping to car rides to home repair. For each hour of work, one time dollar is deposited into a member’s account, good for services offered by other members. One cash-strapped Pennsylvania bride even used time dollars to pay for everything from a wedding-day makeover to an elaborate seven-layer cake.

Rue McClanahan dies at 76 By DAVID BAUDER AP Television Writer

NEW YORK — Rue McClanahan, the Emmy-winning actress who brought the sexually liberated Southern belle Blanche Devereaux to life on the hit TV series “The Golden Girls,” has died. She was 76. Her manager, Barbara Lawrence, said McClanahan died Thursday at 1 a.m. at New York-Presbyterian Hospital of a brain hemorrhage. She had undergone treatment for breast cancer in 1997 and later lectured to cancer support groups on “aging gracefully.” In 2009, she had heart bypass surgery. McClanahan had an active career in off-Broadway and regional stages in the 1960s before she was tapped for TV in the 1970s for the key best-friend character on the hit series “Maude,” starring Beatrice Arthur. After that series ended in 1978, McClanahan landed the role as Aunt Fran on “Mama’s Family” in 1983. But her most loved role came in 1985 when she costarred with Arthur, Betty White and Estelle Getty in “The Golden Girls,” a runaway hit that broke the sitcom mold by focusing on the foibles of four aging — and frequently

McClanahan, the Emmy-winning actress who brought the sexually liberated Southern belle Blanche Devereaux to life on the hit TV series “The Golden Girls,” died Thursday. She was 76. eccentric — women living together in Miami. “Golden Girls” aimed to show “that when people mature, they add layers,” she told The New York Times in 1985. “They don’t turn into other creatures. The truth is we all still have our child, our adolescent, and your young woman living in us.” Blanche, who called her father “Big Daddy,” was a frequent target of roommates Dorothy, Rose and the outspoken Sophia (Getty), who would fire off zingers at Blanche such as, “Your life’s an open blouse.” Fellow “Golden Girl” Betty White called Mc-

Clanahan a close and dear friend. “I treasured our relationship,” said White, who was working in Los Angeles on the set of her TV Land comedy “Hot in Cleveland” on Thursday. “It hurts more than I even thought it would, if that’s even possible.” McClanahan snagged an Emmy for her work on the show in 1987. In an Associated Press interview that year, McClanahan said Blanche was unlike any other role she had ever played. “Probably the closest I’ve ever done was Blanche DuBois in ’A Streetcar Named Desire’ at the Pasa-

dena Playhouse,” she said. “I think, too, that’s where the name came from, although my character is not a drinker and not crazy.” Her Blanche Devereaux, she said, “is in love with life and she loves men. I think she has an attitude toward women that’s competitive. She is friends with Dorothy and Rose, but if she has enough provocation she becomes competitive with them. I think basically she’s insecure. It’s the other side of the Don Juan syndrome.” Vicki Lawrence worked with McClanahan on “Mama’s Family.” Lawrence called her “a consummate professional, an actor’s actor.” “It was my good fortune to get to work with her on the first season and a half of ’Mama’s Family.’ When she got stolen away from ’Mama’s Family’ to do ’Golden Girls,’ I cried,” Lawrence said in an email. After “The Golden Girls” was canceled in 1992, McClanahan, White and Getty reprised their roles in a short-lived spinoff, “Golden Palace.” McClanahan continued working in television, on stage and in film, appearing in the Jack LemmonWalter Matthau vehicle “Out to Sea” and as the biology teacher in “Starship Troopers.”

Coleman’s parents seek custody of his remains SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The estranged parents of former child TV star Gary Coleman are seeking custody of his body and want it returned to the star’s boyhood home in Illinois, his former Coleman manager said Thursday. Coleman died Friday in Utah from a brain hemorrhage at age 42. His former manager and family spokesman Victor Perillo said Coleman’s parents, Sue and Willie Coleman, are the legal custodians of his body because Coleman was divorced from his wife, Shannon Price, in 2008. It was Price who ordered that Gary Coleman be taken off of life support. Utah Valley Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank said Price was named in an advanced health care directive that allowed her to make health care decisions for Gary Coleman when he couldn’t make them for himself. His parents have said they learned about his hospitalization and death from media reports and that they had wanted to reconcile with their son before his death. In 1989, when Gary Coleman was 21, his mother filed a court request trying to gain control of her son’s $6 million fortune, saying he was incapable of handling his affairs. The move “obviously stems from her frustration at

Gary Coleman is originally from Zion, Ill., a small town about 50 miles north of Chicago near the Wisconsin border. Perillo said his parents have discussed having a small, private ceremony and that his body could be returned to Illinois as soon as Friday.

McCartney turns ‘Michelle’ into ode to first lady WASHINGTON (AP) — Paul McCartney had been itching to perform a certain song at the White House, and he seized the moment when it arrived. The former Beatle brought down the house at an East Room concert Wednesday night by belting out “MiMcCartney chelle,” aiming its romantic lyrics straight at a first lady named Michelle. After serenading the first lady with the words, “I love you, I love you, I love you,” McCartney joked that he just might be the “first guy ever to be punched out by a president.” The president didn’t seem to mind though: He was swaying along to the beat while his wife mouthed the words along with McCartney. The 90-minute concert was built around Obama’s presentation to McCartney of the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, awarded by the Library of Congress. The president said McCartney had “helped to lay the soundtrack for an entire generation.”

Former ‘World’s Ugliest Dog’ Miss Ellie dies at 17 PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (AP) — Miss Ellie, a small, bug-eyed Chinese Crested Hairless dog whose pimples and lolling tongue helped her win Animal Planet’s “World’s Ugliest Dog” contest in 2009, has died at age 17 after a career in resort show business in the Smoky Mountains. The Mountain Press reported Thursday that Ellie starred in shows at the Comedy Barn in Pigeon Forge. She also appeared on The Animal Planet cable show “Dogs 101” and was on billboards and in a commercial. Pigeon Forge Mayor Keith Whaley proclaimed Nov. 12 as “Miss Ellie Day” for her owner’s efforts to raise money for the local humane society. Over the years, Ellie helped raise more than $100,000 for the Sevier County Humane Society.

Chileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigative police detain Dutch citizen Joran van der Sloot, after being located in a neighborhood in Santiago Thursday. Peruvian police had been seeking van der Sloot in connection with the May 30 killing of 21-year-old Peruvian woman Stephany Flores at a Lima hotel. Van der Sloot was previously arrested in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalie Holloway, but later released by Dutch authorities.

entertainers to Peru. He ran for vice president in 2001 and for president five years later on fringe tickets. A lawyer for van der Sloot in New York, Joe Tacopina, cautioned against a rush to judgment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joran van der Sloot has been falsely accused of murder once before. The fact is he wears a bullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-eye on his back now and he is a quoteunquote usual suspect when it comes to allegations of foul play,â&#x20AC;? Tacopina said. Van der Sloot was twice arrested but later released for lack of evidence in the 2005 disappearance of Holloway in Aruba. No trace of her has been found and van der Sloot remains the main suspect in the case, Ann Angela, spokeswoman for the Aruba prosecutorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, said Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening now is incredible,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this moment we

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything to do with it, but we are following the case with great interest and if Peruvian authorities would need us, we are here.â&#x20AC;? The mystery of Hollowayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappearance garnered wide attention on television and in newspapers in Europe and the United States. Two years ago, a Dutch television crime reporter captured hidden-camera footage of van der Sloot saying he was with Holloway when she collapsed on a beach from being drunk. He said he believed she was dead and asked a friend to dump her body in the sea. Judges subsequently refused to arrest van der Sloot on the basis of the tape. A spokeswoman for Hollowayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Beth Twitty of Mountain Brook, Alabama, told the AP the family was aware of the development in Peru but would have no comment.

Chilean police detain Dutchman in Peru killing

in Aruba, a Dutch Caribbean island where van der Slootâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s late father was a prominent judge. Prosecutors said van der Sloot is still their main suspect in the case even though he was never charged. Guardia said the 22-year-old Dutchman was in Peru for a poker tournament and appears with the dead woman in a video taken at a Lima casino early Sunday. The two were later seen entering the hotel by one of its employees about 5 a.m. and the Dutchman departed alone about four hours later, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have an interview with a worker at the hotel who says she saw this foreigner with the victim enter his room,â&#x20AC;? Guardia said. The victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Ricardo Flores, 48, is a former president of the Peruvian Automobile Club who won the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Caminos del Incaâ&#x20AC;? rally in 1991 and brings circuses and foreign

SUSPECTED IN ALABAMA GIRLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S DISAPPEARANCE

LIMA, Peru â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Dutch man long suspected in the disappearance of an Alabama teen in Aruba was arrested Thursday in the murder of a young woman in Peru. Stephany Flores, 21, was killed in a Lima hotel Sunday, five years to the day after Natalee Holloway disappeared. The suspect, Joran van der Sloot, was arrested in neighboring Chile, where he traveled the day after Flores died. Van der Sloot was taken in a dark vehicle to a police office in downtown Santiago. He made no comment as he entered, walking calmly and without handcuffs as journalists shouted his name. Van der Sloot was detained while traveling in a taxi, about halfway to the coast on Route 68, said Fernando Ovalle, deputy spokesman of Chileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national investigative police. The suspect did not resist and has been calm under detention, Ovalle said. Chilean police are awaiting instructions from their counterparts in Peru, Ovalle said. Flores, who had been seen with van der Sloot early Sunday, was found Wednesday lying face down on the floor of the suspectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hotel room in Lima, with her neck broken, Peruvian police Gen. Cesar Guardia told The Associated Press. She was fully clothed, with no signs of having been sexually abused. Authorities found no potential murder weapons in the room, Garcia said. Flores was killed exactly five years after the May 30, 2005, disappearance of Holloway during a high school trip

Turkey honors slain activists, including US teen

Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use of video from flotilla raid draws criticism

ISTANBUL (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Thousands of mourners hailed activists killed in an Israeli commando mission as martyrs Thursday, hoisting their coffins to cheers of â&#x20AC;&#x153;God is great,â&#x20AC;? while Turkish leaders said Israel had jeopardized its relationship with its closest Muslim ally despite meeting Ankaraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demand to release the hundreds captured in the raid. The father of the youngest of the nine activists killed â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 19-year-old high school student Furkan Dogan, who had dual U.S.-Turkish citizenship â&#x20AC;&#x201D; praised his son for dying in a just cause. Ahmet Dogan told the state-run Anatolia news agency he identified his boy in the morgue and he had been shot through the forehead. Still, he said, the family was not sad because they believed Furkan had died with honor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel my son has been blessed with heaven,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am hoping to be a father worthy of my son.â&#x20AC;? Dogan, who was born in Troy, New York, but moved to Turkey when he was two, was to be buried in his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hometown of Kayseri in central Turkey on Friday.

JERUSALEM (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s military is using video confiscated from people on the Gaza-bound aid flotilla to justify opening fire during its deadly raid on the ships, drawing sharp criticism Thursday from foreign correspondents who say some of the footage was shot by journalists. At least two videos posted to the army spokespersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s YouTube channel are labeled â&#x20AC;&#x153;capturedâ&#x20AC;? from the Mavi Marmara, the Turkish ship Israeli commandos stormed in a nighttime raid Monday that left nine people dead. The military allowed some journalists to board vessels used in the raid, and several dozen reporters were on board the flotillaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six ships as well. Video of the operation is playing a major role in Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and pro-Palestinian activistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; efforts try to push their version of events. Israel says the commandos resorted to force only after activists attacked them with knives, crowbars and clubs, as well as two pistols wrested from soldiers. Activists who had set sail for Gaza with 10,000 tons of aid, hoping to break Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-year-old blockade of Gaza, say the commandos fired first.

Cabbie shot twin brother, aimed for faces in spree WHITEHAVEN, England (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Derrick Bird killed his twin brother and the family lawyer, then traveled the roads he had worked as a taxi driver, shooting people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; apparently aiming for their faces â&#x20AC;&#x201D; killing 12 in all and wounding nearly a dozen before committing suicide. Detectives Thursday were trying to answer the elusive question: What drove the 52-year-old cabbie to commit the worst mass shooting in Britain since 1996? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are 23 families out there who want to know why these events happened,â&#x20AC;? Detective Chief Superintendent Iain Goulding said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our communities want to know why this has happened. My officers and I are absolutely determined to get to the bottom of why this happened. However, it may not be possible to establish all the answers, because we cannot speak to Derrick Bird.â&#x20AC;? Goulding said detectives would investigate rumors that Bird had financial problems or domestic troubles. He refused to speculate on what caused Bird to shoot people he knew, like his brother David Bird and lawyer Kevin Commons, as well as others he apparently did not.

Roman Catholic bishop stabbed to death in Turkey ANKARA, Turkey (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Roman Catholic bishop was stabbed to death in southern Turkey on Thursday, a day before he was scheduled to leave for Cyprus to meet with the pope, officials and reports said. Luigi Padovese, 63, the apostolic vicar in Anatolia, was attacked outside his home in the Mediterranean port of Iskenderun. The killing was not believed to be politically motivated. Dogan news agency video footage of the scene showed the bishop lying dead in front of a building. Mehmet Celalettin Lekesiz, the governor for the province of Hatay, said police immediately caught the suspected killer. He said the man, identified only as Murat A., was Padoveseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driver for the last four and a half years and was mentally unstable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The initial investigation shows that the incident is not politically motivated,â&#x20AC;? Lekesiz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have learned that the suspect had psychological problems and was receiving treatment.â&#x20AC;?

STERN: THERE IS NO FREE AGENCY SUMMIT LOS ANGELES (AP) — There will be no free agency summit. So says NBA commissioner David Stern, saying he’s been assured at the highest levels that there will be no sitdown among LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the other superstars who could hit the market on July 1. And that was the players’ choice, not under his orders. However, Stern says he would expect those players to talk to each other before they make their decisions. Stern also says Thursday a new collective bargaining agreement is No. 1 on his agenda, but he isn’t sure it will get done this summer.

SCHIAVONE, STOSUR IN FRENCH OPEN FINAL PARIS (AP) — On a rainy, windy day 53 1/2 weeks ago, at Roland Garros’ cozy, 259-seat Court 8, Samantha Stosur and Francesca Schiavone played each other in a run-of-the-mill, first-round match at the French Open. Stosur, then ranked 32nd, beat Schiavone, then ranked 50th, in straight sets. They’ll meet again at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament Saturday. Oh, how the setting and circumstances have changed. This time around, Stosur vs. Schiavone will be for the French Open championship, in the 14,845-capacity main stadium, broadcast live on TV around the world. In line with the topsy-turvy way this tournament unfolded, it will be the first Grand Slam final for each woman — only the fifth such double-debut in the 42-year Open era.

CANSECO TESTIFIES BEFORE DC GRAND JURY

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former slugger Jose Canseco completed his testimony Thursday before a federal grand jury, where he was expected to maintain his support for Roger Clemens. The grand jury has been hearing witnesses as it weighs whether to indict Clemens for allegedly lying to Congress two years ago, when he denied using steroids or human growth hormone. Canseco previously conveyed his support for Clemens, saying in a March 2008 affidavit he has never seen the seven-time Cy Young Award winner use, possess or ask for steroids or HGH. One of Canseco’s lawyers has said his client’s testimony Thursday would be consistent with Canseco’s past statements. Canseco originally was set to testify in April but scheduling conflicts delayed his appearance.

Home plate umpire Jim Joyce wipes tears during the exchange of lineup cards between Cleveland Indians bench coach Tim Tolman, left, before a baseball game in Detroit Thursday. Armando Galarraga lost his bid for a perfect game with two outs in the ninth inning on a disputed call at first base by Joyce on Wednesday night.

Despite imperfect moment, Joyce, Galarraga, Leyland demonstrated what baseball and sports are all about

t is at the same time endearing and paradoxical, this thing called the human element in baseball. While the loss of Armando Galarraga’s perfect game has blatantly signaled the absolute necessity for expanded instant replay in baseball — answer me this: since when did it become all right to be so wrong? — it’s not the human element of umpire Jim Joyce’s missed call that’s being championed. That much is abundantly clear. And it shouldn’t be. Not anymore. Because the human element adage in allowing blown calls is every bit as outdated as most teenagers view the actual

game of baseball. To say that using instant replay to correct significant calls attacks the integrity of the century-old game is flat-out misguided.

The “human element” in umpiring was, until the last 25 years, a necessary evil, nothing more. Since then, it’s been pure stubbornness. Had Abner Doubleday (or whomever invented the grand game) had instant replay at his disposal 140 years ago, he likely would have implemented it. A lack of instant replay beyond boundary calls in baseball is the product of two things: the circumstances under which the game was established a century ago, and a commissioner who most often reacts only after times get desperate (the Steroid Era, anyone?).

See Hitter, Page 4B

NEW YORK — The imperfect game stands. An umpire’s tears and admission he blew a call failed to move baseball commissioner Bud Selig to award Armando Galarraga the perfect game he Selig pitched. The play and its aftermath quickly became the talk of the sports world and beyond, even to the White House. Selig said Thursday that Major League Baseball will look at expanded replay and umpiring, but didn’t specifically address umpire Jim Joyce’s botched call Wednesday night that cost Galarraga the perfect game — 27 batters up, 27 batters down. No hits, no walks, no errors. A baseball official familiar with the decision confirmed to The Associated Press that the call was not being reversed. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because that element was not included in Selig’s statement. Joyce said he erred on what would’ve been the final out in Detroit, when he called Cleveland’s Jason Donald safe at first base. The umpire personally apologized to Galarraga and hugged him after the Tigers’ 3-0 win, then took the field at Comerica Park on Thursday in tears. Tigers manager Jim Leyland picked Galarraga to present Detroit’s lineup at home plate before Thursday’s game to set up the emotional meeting with Joyce. They shook

One little miss that cost him the outright lead Thursday sure wasn’t going to spoil his day. On greens that were fast and pure despite two rain delays at Muirfield Village, Ogilvy rolled in eight birdie putts to take the lead, only to fall

into a three-way tie when he stepped over a 30-inch par putt and watched it spin out of the cup on his 17th hole. No matter.

SPORTS SCENE

AP Source: Brown leaning toward Charlotte return CHARLOTTE (AP) — Larry Brown has begun preparations for next season in Charlotte and is leaning toward returning for a third season coaching the Bobcats, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Thursday. Brown has been at Time Warner Cable Arena this week and is expected to be on hand Friday when the Bobcats work out rookie prospects, the person said on condition of anonymity because the team has made no official announcement on Brown’s future. The 69-year-old Brown, who did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment, could address his plans as soon as Friday and end weeks of uncertainty for the Michael Jordan-owned Bobcats. A Hall of Famer and the only coach to win NCAA and NBA titles, Brown has coached 13 pro and college teams. His well-traveled past has been in the spotlight since the Bobcats were swept by Orlando in the first round of their first playoff appearance and

Brown declined to commit to returning in 2010-11. In an end-of-season meeting with reporters on April 30, Brown lamented the time he spent away from his wife and two teenage children, who live in the Philadelphia area. Brown has said numerous times he’ll only coach for Jordan, who hired Brown after his two-year exile following a miserable 23-59 season in New York in 2005-06. But Brown wouldn’t close the door on retiring or taking a front-office job — and there have still been numerous reports linking him to other coaching jobs. His chances of returning to Philadelphia, where he led the 76ers to the 2001 finals, appeared to be squashed when the Sixers hired Doug Collins. But the Los Angeles Clippers, Chicago Bulls, and Cleveland Cavaliers all have openings, too. Jordan, who bought the money-losing Bobcats in March for $275 million, has been patient with Brown, who quickly made the Bobcats into a a playoff team.

MLB BRIEFS Agent: Retired Griffey will work for Mariners SEATTLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ken Griffey Jr. will be back with Seattle in the near future working with the team in a long-term job to be determined, according to the agent for the now-retired Mariners slugger. Brian Goldberg told The Associated Press in a telephone interview on Thursday that Griffeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quiet exit from baseball is not the last time these Mariners will see him. He also said Griffey will return this season for a formal goodbye and retirement ceremony in Seattle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I promise you, he will be around plenty,â&#x20AC;? Goldberg said. They were the first words from Griffeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camp since Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s press release by the team that announced the Seattle iconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement during his 22nd major league season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Actually, this is something that started getting discussed while he was still playing,â&#x20AC;? he said of the job with the team. He said Griffeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new role is going to be long term. Goldberg said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely to be one that has Griffey in uniform daily as a coach, at least initially. Goldberg said the actual role for Griffey will be settled after the 40-year-old and the Mariners exchange â&#x20AC;&#x153;wish listsâ&#x20AC;? of what they want his role to be. Goldberg said Griffey will return this season for some kind of official retirement ceremony on a date that is to be determined.

Strasburg looks ready for major league debut BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; By working himself out of a jam, Stephen Strasburg looks ready to make his major league debut with the Washington Nationals next week. In his final minor league start, the Nationalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top pitching prospect allowed no runs, three hits and one walk through five innings for the Triple A Syracuse Chiefs against the Buffalo Bisons on Thursday. And he closed with a flourish, preserving a 3-0 lead by getting International League batting leader Jesus Feliciano to ground out to second with runners at second and third and two out in the fifth. That was all for Strasburg, who finished with five strikeouts. He improved his minor league record to 7-2 (4-1 with Syracuse, 3-1 with Double-A Harrisburg) with the Chiefs rolling to a 7-1 win The first player selected in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next start is scheduled to be with the Nationals on Tuesday against Pittsburgh.

Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exercise option to play â&#x20AC;&#x2122;11 season in Coliseum OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Oakland Athletics are staying put in their longtime home at the Coliseum. The Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s have exercised their option to play the 2011 season in the venue, which commissioner Bud Selig has regularly said isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a viable long-term option for the small-

market club to stay competitive or afloat financially. Selig formed a committee to study the issue, but so far hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made any recommendations on how to proceed. He met with Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s officials in March and also has had talks with the San Francisco Giants about their territorial rights, which include San Jose where the Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s would like to move. San Francisco has a Class-A team in San Jose. In its current contract with the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority, the Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also have one-year options to play the 2012 and 2013 seasons in the Coliseum.

Arizona city has new plan for Cubs spring complex PHOENIX (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Officials in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa announced a new financing plan Thursday for building a new spring training complex for the Chicago Cubs so the team doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move its spring operations to Florida. City officials said cornerstones of the $84 million plan include a proposed increase in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bed tax on hotel rooms and using city money from special funds that are fed from non-tax revenue sources, such as golf courses. Sales and property taxes would not figure in the plan, but revenue from selling some city-owned rural property in Pinal County would be available to replenish the special funds, officials said.

Murphy tears knee in Triple-A, out for season NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Injuryplagued Daniel Murphy of the New York Mets has hurt his knee in the minors and is out for the season. Murphy was playing second base at Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday night and trying to turn a double play when a runner slid into him. Murphy has a tear that will not need surgery, but will take four to six months to heal. The 25-year-old Murphy had been out this year because of a sprained right knee. The Mets said on Thursday that the new injury is not related to his past knee trouble. Murphy hit 12 home runs for the Mets last season. The team has been moving him around the diamond, trying to find a good position for him.

Mariners call up RHP Chad Cordero from Triple-A SEATTLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chad Corderoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long journey back from major shoulder surgery is complete.

The Mariners made the move before Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Minnesota. Cordero takes the roster spot of Ken Griffey Jr., who retired on Wednesday. Cordero was 0-1 with six saves and a 4.12 ERA in 17 appearances for Tacoma. He allowed just one earned run in his last six appearances.

Atlanta Bravesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Omar Infante drives in the go ahead run with a base hit in the eighth inning of a baseball game against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday in Atlanta, Wednesday. The Braves won 2-1.

Like old times: Braves holding down 1st in NL East ATLANTA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As the Braves packed their bags for the longest road trip of the season, televisions throughout the Turner Field clubhouse were set to a channel replaying the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest moment in Atlanta. The 1995 World Series championship. Hmmm, could that be a prescient bit of programming? Because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sure starting to seem like old times around here. Once a perennial powerhouse, Atlanta hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made it to the postseason since 2005, the last year

in its unprecedented run of 14 straight division titles. But when the Braves headed to Los Angeles, the initial stop Thursday on a crucial 11-game trip, they were baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hottest team and holding down first place in the NL East. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be like around here,â&#x20AC;? said Chipper Jones, the last player left from the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;95 title team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got to experience it the first 11 years of my career. Now some of these other guys are finally getting to experience it.â&#x20AC;? Indeed, the Braves used to be as much a

part of the fall landscape as the changing leaves. Granted, they became as well known for their futility in the postseason (only one World Series title in 14 tries) as they were for always getting there. But a four-season playoff drought has driven home just how impressive that streak was. This year started out like another disappointment in the making. Atlanta ended April at 9-14, already five games off the pace and reeling from a nine-game losing streak. Then came the May

turnaround. The Braves went 20-8 and snatched away first place from two-time defending NL champion Philadelphia on the final day of the month. June began with two more wins over the slumping Phillies, completing a sweep and leaving Atlanta with an eight-game winning streak (its longest since 2003), 18 wins in its last 22 games and a 2 1/2-game lead in the division race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good,â&#x20AC;? Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be right there at the end.â&#x20AC;?

DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Magglio Ordonez and Miguel Cabrera hit consecutive homers in a fiverun seventh inning to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 12-6 win over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday, a day after a blown call cost Armando Galarraga a perfect game.

But they moved on.

the slightest of smiles. And with that smile, the three most decorated players in the field punched their Open tickets. A winner on the LPGA Tour in 2006 and with more than $1 million in career earnings, Kim had to sweat it out before she earned the third and final berth from the sectional into next month’s Open, where she finished tied for 14th in 2007. “It felt very uncomfortable,” said the 25-year-old from Seoul, South Korea, of the anxious wait, the smile returning to her face as she clutched the sealed envelope with the invitation to the Open inside. The sectional’s medalist, Teresa Lu, of Chinese Taipei, didn’t need to hang around long after her rounds on Trace’s 6,500-yard Lake Course, which hosted a sectional last year that awarded six berths into the 2009 Open. With rounds of 69 and 70, Lu’s 5-under 139 sealed her entry into the Open well before the rest of the field finished. Lu, 25, is a five-year member of the LPGA Tour

with more than $1 million in career earnings. Perhaps the most accomplished player of the entire 56-player field didn’t have to suffer through much trepidation either, though she’s likely racked up the most frequent flyer miles. France’s Gwladys Nocera finished her day with rounds of 74 and 68 for a 2-under 142, matching the low round of the day on her second 36 holes to finish second and earn a trip to Oakmont. Nocera, 35, a two-time Player of the Year on the Ladies European Tour who is playing her first full season on the LPGA Tour this season, played in Slovakia last week and is scheduled to play at the LPGA Tour’s stop in Springfield, Ill., next week. “It’s more relief than anything,” said the threetime Solheim Cup member of qualifying for her fourth U.S. Open. “I came all the way here for two days and two rounds of golf, so I’m pretty happy.” Nocera, who has finished first, second, third and fourth on the LET’s Order of Merit money list since turning professional at age 27 in 2002, has won 11 times around the world, including 10 times on the LET.

But she’s always missed the cut at the Open. That hasn’t soured her on America’s national championship, though. “It’s always good to play in the Open,” said Nocera, who was furiously texting on her cell phone after taking the USGAemblazoned envelope. “I didn’t want to miss it.” Duke golfer Courtney Ellenbogen was the first alternate after finishing 77-68 for a 145. Charleston, S.C.’s Katie Rose Higgins, 18, was the second alternate after scores of 72-76-148. Cary’s Katherine Perry (78-77), who at 17 was the sectional’s medalist at 3-under in 2009, finished tied for 20th at 11 over. Maggie Simons (81-80), who won the North Carolina Women’s Amateur at Trace in 2007, was 38th at 17 over. And Ashleigh Albrecht (80-75), who a day before her high school graduation in California won a playoff for the sixth and final berth in 2009, was tied for 20th at 11 over as well. Tiffany Priest, the director of women’s golf and member services for the Carolinas Golf Association, said she is “99 percent sure” that Trace will host another Open sectional in 2011.

Some may say baseball is too slow of a game. If that’s the case, change in baseball is practically glacial. But that’s only part of the story today. Because in the aftermath — even the immediate aftermath — of the Missed Call Seen ’Round The World, we have witnessed the only human element that should ever be lauded in not only baseball, but in any sport. Joyce couldn’t have handled the situation better. He immediately took a look at the replay and made a beeline for the Tigers clubhouse. He sought out Galarraga, apologized for the call, and was so distressed that the pitcher ended the impromptu and unlikely (especially in baseball history) meeting by consoling Joyce. Galarraga has no doubt become a fan favorite in the last few hours. First, he didn’t argue the play when everyone else did. Second, he

hands, and the umpire gave the pitcher a pat on the shoulder. “I didn’t want this to be my 15 minutes of fame. I would have liked my 15 minutes to be a great call in the World Series. Hopefully, my 15 minutes are over now,” Joyce said. Bad calls are part of the mix in sports, witness the many mistakes last October in baseball’s postseason. But something about this

turned the page in his postgame comments, saying that everybody makes mistakes. And Tigers manager Jim Leyland, after initial criticism on the field that was unheard by fans, quickly cooled down and offered a route for a smooth transition in his own postgame comments, praising both his pitcher and the umpire. (How often do you hear managers laud umpires? And after missed calls? That may have been the most historic happening of anything Wednesday night). But the most touching moment came before Thursday’s day game, when Leyland sent Galarraga out to home plate to hand the lineup card to Joyce, who after a few seconds wiped tears from his eyes. And then Galarraga patted the ump on the back, like a parent would for a heartbroken child. These moments have been baseball’s true human elements. A man admitting he was wrong on the call of his life, then going out to face the world again. Another man accepting an apology on the biggest night of his

career with pure grace and understanding. And another doing something to bring the two together again in a moment that can only help heal the situation. If only Bud Selig could reveal a human element within the commissioner’s office by looking into not just his heart, but the hearts of the men most affected by one ground ball and the millions of fans’ hearts who still love this game despite its many flaws, and overturn the call. Armando Galarraga didn’t only pitch a perfect game, he was extra perfect, retiring 28 in order. He may never get the historical recognition he deserves, but the actions and words that came forth as a result of imperfection cannot be left to wither away: A bad night for baseball brought out the best in sports. And in man. Baseball indeed can be a perfect game.

one — the chance to right a wrong, the heartfelt emotions of everyone involved — reached way past the lines. “I’ve got to say we’ll never see it again in our lifetime,” New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Galarraga, who was barely known outside Detroit before this week, and Joyce, whose career had flourished in relative obscurity, became hot topics on Twitter. At least one anti-Joyce Facebook page popped up and firejimjoyce.com was launched. Wikipedia blocked editing to the umpire’s page.

Joyce, a longtime ump with a solid reputation, declined comment on MLB’s statement after Thursday’s game, saying he hadn’t read it. “There’s no doubt he feels bad and terrible,” Galarraga said after Detroit beat Cleveland 12-6 on Thursday. “I have a lot of respect for the man. It takes a lot to say you’re sorry and to say in interviews he made a mistake.” “I’m sad, but I know that I pitched a perfect game. The first 28-out perfect game,” he said.

DEAR ABBY

BRIDGE HAND

Woman fears being watched by ghosts of her loved ones DEAR ABBY: I am in my 40s and have never lost anyone close to me. Unfortunately, my darling mother-in-law has terminal cancer. I am now preoccupied that people’s spirits are near us after they die. Please don’t laugh, but it gives me the creeps. I don’t want to think my mother-in-law will watch me making love with my husband, that my father will watch me in the bathroom, or that my mother will be critical of my spending more time with my kids than cleaning the house as she did. Am I crazy to think I might not have any privacy after my loved ones die? — SPOOKED IN SPOKANE

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Don’t let your emotions lead the way or you will make mistakes. Greater focus on home and family will ensure that you protect what you have. Problems at work may lead you in the wrong direction. Put your time and cash into something that will benefit you, not people you don’t know. Do whatever you can to cut costs at home. Your numbers are 7, 13, 18, 24, 38, 42, 44 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Discussing what you feel or want to do with someone who is judgmental will not help you reach your goals or destination. Instead, plan a fun-filled day with people you find inspiring. You will avoid having your dreams disrupted.

DEAR SPOOKED: Calm down. The departed sometimes “visit” those with whom their souls were intertwined, but usually it’s to offer strength, solace and reassurance during difficult times. If your mother-in-law’s spirit visits you while you’re intimate with her son, it will be only to wish you and her son many more years of closeness and happiness in your marriage. As to your parents, when they travel to the hereafter, I am sure they’ll have more pleasant things with which to occupy their time than spying on you. So hold a good thought and quit worrying. o

Abigail Van Buren Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

DEAR ABBY: I have a question regarding gift giving. If you receive a gift of clothing (with a receipt) from someone and the garment doesn’t fit, is it your responsibility to exchange it, or should you return it to the gift-giver, explain that it’s the wrong size and ask the person to return it? I gave my sister an outfit that didn’t fit her. She immediately gave the gift back and asked me to return it. — LORI IN FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CALIF. DEAR LORI: It is the recipient’s responsibility to return the item. That way she (or he) can be sure the replacement will be the right size, the right color or the right style. To give you your gift back and expect you to take responsibility for it was presumptuous.

DEAR ABBY: A friend of more than 40 years, “Myra,” delivered a letter to my physician outlining her observations of what she claims were “changes” in me. I was called into my doctor’s office to respond. Myra has also told me I should see a psychiatrist. I am disappointed that a friend would say these things about me, and I don’t think she should have contacted my doctor without telling me. I have asked others if they have noticed any dramatic changes in me and no one else has. Myra may have my best interests at heart, but I am upset about this, to say the least. Am I wrong to feel that she has overstepped her boundaries? — PERFECTLY FINE IN OHIO DEAR PERFECTLY FINE: Your friend must have been extremely concerned about you to have taken the step she did. And I wish you had mentioned in your letter WHY she thinks you should see a psychiatrist. If you have no family nearby with whom she could discuss her concerns, it’s possible that she did what she did out of love for you, so please try to forgive her. P.S. Was what she did out of character for her? If so, consider discussing it with her family — or physician.

Billboard attracts with charcoal, pepper scent

Gator raid: 3-ft-long alligator collared in Michigan

MOORESVILLE (AP) — It’s not just the picture of beef on a new billboard in North Carolina that tries to catch drivers’ attention, it’s the aroma coming from the sign. The billboard on N.C. 150 in central North Carolina emits the smell of black pepper and charcoal to promote a new line of beef available at the Bloom grocery chain. Bloom is part of the Salisbury, N.C.based Food Lion chain. The billboard shows a fork piercing a piece of meat. A Bloom spokeswoman says the billboard will emit scents from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. every day until June 18. A high-powered fan at the bottom of the billboard spreads the aroma by blowing air over cartridges loaded with fragrance oil.

TRENTON, Mich. (AP) — Police in a Detroit suburb have picked up an unusual suspect: a 3-foot-long alligator. Deputy Chief James Nardone (narDOH’-nee) says officers nabbed the reptile Tuesday as it strolled along a suburban street in Trenton, Mich. He says the gator is probably someone’s pet. He joked Wednesday that it likely didn’t swim into the suburb, which is perched on the shore of the Detroit River. Authorities are holding the alligator at an animal control office until it can be moved to a nonprofit rescue that handles abandoned exotic animal cases in nearby Belleville.

Transgender women go topless at Delaware beach REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) — Rehoboth Beach in Delaware isn’t a topless beach — but a few transgender women caused a stir by treating it like one. Police say passers-by complained after they removed their tops and revealed their surgically enhanced breasts over Memorial Day weekend. A lifeguard asked them to put their tops back on. They initially refused, but covered up before police arrived. Even if they hadn’t, though, Police Chief Keith Banks notes they were doing nothing illegal. Since they have male genitalia, they can’t be charged with indecent exposure for showing their breasts. Banks says there’s no need for a specific law to address the issue.

Calif. car dealer who hexed prosecutors sentenced LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a used car dealer is headed to prison for fraud, despite attempting to place a voodoo hex on prosecutors handling his case in Los Angeles. Thirty-four-year-old Ruben Hernandez was sentenced Wednesday to 12 years after being convicted of using false Social Security information and bank statements to buy properties. Hernandez was arrested in February 2009 after being a fugitive for a year. Authorities searching his home found a shrine with voodoo dolls dunked headfirst in cups of water with pins in their eyes. Officials say the case number and names of the prosecutor and investigators were written on the dolls.

God alone is the true eternal judge Q: What did Jesus mean when He said we shouldn’t judge other people? I’ve a hard time with this, because I’m a businessman, and if I didn’t judge whether or not someone I was doing business with could be trusted, I’d be broke in a matter of months. -- H.W. A: Jesus wasn’t telling us that we ought to be gullible or naive about others, or that we should overlook the reality of human failure and sin — not at all. Jesus wasn’t naive about those who claimed to follow Him but in reality couldn’t be trusted: “Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for ... he knew what was in a man” (John 2:24-25). Look carefully at Jesus’ actual words: “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged” (Matthew 7:1-2). Jesus here was reminding us that God alone is our eternal judge, and we must never think we can take His place. Some day, we all will stand before Him, and He alone has the power to condemn or save us. He alone also is able to see our hearts, and He alone knows whether or not our faith in Christ is real. Jesus’ words are also a warning against pride -against thinking we are better or more righteous than others. In God’s eyes, we are all guilty, for we have all sinned against Him and turned our backs on His will for our lives. The Bible says, “There is no one righteous, not even one” (Romans 3:10). This is why we need Christ, for by His death on the cross He took upon Himself the judgment we deserve. Is He your Savior? Make sure, by committing your life to Him today.
