Python’s strangling of 2 boys probed

Authorities on Tuesday were looking into the nighttime strangling of two Canadian boys by a 100-pound python. According to reports, the snake escaped from its enclosure, slithered through a ventilation system and fell through the ceiling into the room where the young boys were sleeping. A snake expert said it was possible that the python was spooked and simply clung to whatever it landed on. Police are treating the deaths in Campbellton, New Brunswick, as a criminal investigation. — World, A8

More allegations for Manziel Broker claims to have video of QB signing items for a fee By DAVID HARRIS david.harris@theeagle.com

When Texas A&M took the field Tuesday afternoon for its second practice of fall camp, College Station was nearly cloudless. Players and coaches spread out on the Coolidge Practice Fields, sweating and drilling with the kickoff of the most anticipated season in program history just weeks away. However, off the field, for the third consecutive day, the eligibility status of the reigning Heisman Trophy winner didn’t mimic the Brazos Valley sky. Things, somehow, got cloudier for Johnny Manziel. Manziel practiced for the second consecutive day, walking onto the grass and back into the spotlight just hours after another ESPN report linked him to a third autograph broker. An East Coast autograph broker played two cellphone videos to ESPN apparently showing Manziel signing A&M helmets and memorabilia. The broker said he paid Manziel $7,500 for signing almost 300 items on Jan. 11 and 12 at the Walter Camp Foundation Event in New Haven, Conn. ESPN reported that the videos include Manziel saying “You never did a signing with me” and that, if the broker were to tell anyone, he would refuse to deal with him in the future. The videos reportedly do not show Manziel accepting any money and were filmed without Manziel’s knowledge. See MANZIEL, Page A5

ight-year-old James Wilborn was at his greatgrandmother’s apartment in Calvert playing a game of pool on his tablet computer last weekend when he heard glass breaking. When the soon-to-be thirdgrader peeked out the window to see what all the noise was about, he saw the flames quickly approaching the unit they were in and immediately thought of his “granny.” “I started yelling, ‘Granny, granny, come quick!’” James recalled Tuesday while standing in front of his great-grandmother’s destroyed residence. “I got the window open and got out, then tried to pull my granny out but her feet got stuck.” James then rushed to the apartment nearby where his mother was working on a woman’s hair and yelled, “Fire!” His mom, Jannie Wilborn, 24, said she and a neighbor quickly went to her grand-

He said if the NCAA cannot prove he received money, it could rule him ineligible and then immediately reinstate him, similar to its action against Auburn quarterback Cam Newton in 2011. He did say there could be a small suspension if Manziel was found to be repeatedly signing things that he knew others

INSIDE Poll: Even if they could, most people wouldn’t want to live to 120

A new poll by the Pew Research Center explores attitudes about a scientific quest: Creating treatments that one day might slow the aging process and let people live to be as old as 120. The poll found most Americans wouldn’t want a treatment that would let them live decades longer than the current average life expectancy.

Aging America: Live to be 120? Most say no thanks Editor’s note: Aging America is a joint AP-APME project examining the aging of the baby boomers and the impact that this so-called silver tsunami will have on the communities in which they live. By LAURAN NEERGAAR Associated Press

Fifty-six percent said no thanks — although two-thirds expect most other people would want to try such a step, according to the report issued Tuesday. Few expect such a radical idea to become reality, at least by 2050, although most of those surveyed expect other medical advances that could more gradually extend life expectancy, such as better cancer care. When asked about living to 120 or beyond, the survey found 51 percent of people said that would be bad for society. They worried about a strain on natural resources and that such treatments probably would be available only to the rich rather than to everyone. What is the ideal life span? To most Americans, it’s between 79 and 100; the median answer was 90 years, Pew reported. In the U.S., a child born today can expect to live 78.7 years. Women’s life expectancy is longer, 81 years, than men’s, 76.2. With a rapidly graying population that is bringing concern about the growth of Alzheimer’s disease and an overburdened Medicare system, caution about the idea of one day living even longer may not be surprising. But longevity pioneer Cynthia Kenyon of the University

of California, San Francisco, wonders if the public understands the real goal of such research, which is better health. Many of the experimental animals whose lives have been extended look and act far younger — and are far healthier — than their untreated counterparts of the same age, she said. “It would be the equivalent of a 90-year-old person that you think is looking like a 45-yearold,” Kenyon told The Associated Press. Because aging itself underlies the development of many chronic diseases as our bodies break down, the theory is that slowing the aging process might help keep people healthier for longer — even if it’s never as dramatic as what has happened with animals. “We are very interested in

not only life extension, but extension of the health span,” said Dr. Marie A. Bernard, deputy director of the National Institute on Aging, which pays for much of this research. Research into life extension began with the discovery that severely restricting calories in lab animals — they regularly consume 25 percent to 30 percent less than normal — makes them live longer. Remarkably, they also were healthier than their litter mates. That led to the discovery of various genetic alterations that control life span. Kenyon’s research, for example, found that altering a single gene doubled the life span of roundworms, which stayed healthy until near the end. Other researchers have discovered similar aging-related gene mutations in different species.

Woman feeling torn over moving

D

ear Annie: I left my hometown when I was 19 and have lived in a nearby state for the past 27 years. Two of my children are grown and on their own, and my youngest currently lives with my ex-husband overseas. My mother is now in her 70s and has many medical problems, lives alone and rarely leaves the house. I am also in a long-distance relationship with a man from my childhood who lives near my mother. I am planning to move back to my home state to help my mother and also pursue this relationship. However, I am torn between moving back there and being able to see my children, who live in various places. It breaks my heart for my mother to be all alone, and I know I am running out of time to have her in my life. I also feel this man is “the one,” and I want to be with him. Annie, I spent nearly 30 years caring for my kids. I plan to see them every few months and create a visitation schedule for my son to be with me. Am I being selfish to move away? — Torn Between Kids, Parents and Boyfriend Dear Torn: Absolutely not. You aren’t abandoning young children. Your kids no longer live with you, so you are free to go where you wish. As long as you can visit your children and work out a time for your youngest to be with you, you are under no obligation to remain in your current home. You have spent 27 years taking care of your kids, and now you are quite unselfishly going to take care of your mother. You deserve to also take care of yourself. Dear Annie: I recently invited some friends to my home for an informal Sunday supper. We’ve known one another for 10 years and usually go out to restaurants. This is the first time we’ve had them over to our home. Since then, I have not received any kind of invitation from them. Worse, one of them recently said they had such a good time that we should do it again. But no one volunteered to use their home. Someone suggested I do it. I have done a lot of entertaining in the past, and going over my guest lists, I realize that very few people have returned the favor. Before my husband died last year, he said flat out that he was tired of entertaining people who do nothing for us in return. One of our neighbors was invited twice to our home, and I have yet to be inside her house. Is reciprocity some old social rule that no longer exists? — Still Waiting Dear Still: No, but many people no longer feel obligated to follow any social rules at all. We think your particular problem is home entertainment. Too many people are embarrassed by the condition of their houses or by their cooking skills. They don’t realize that their friends aren’t interested in comparing furniture and appetizers. They simply want to enjoy the company. The solution for you is to entertain in your home only those who will reciprocate, and socialize with the rest in neutral settings such as restaurants.

NEW YORK — Acting in one of Shakespeare’s plays is difficult enough without having to dodge a 3,600-pound SUV. That’s just one of the challenges facing the cast performing Richard III this summer in a working outdoor municipal parking lot at the corner of Ludlow and Broome streets in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. There also are joggers, bikers and dog walkers, lost tourists and the drug-addled. There are sirens, bugs and car alarms, and the smells from a nearby French-Cuban restaurant. And, of course, cars zipping in and out. “This is not easy. If it was, nobody would come and watch,” says Hamilton Clancy, the producing artistic director of The Drilling Company, which for years has staged the downtown shows. “The beauty of the parking lot is that people come and go, stay for five minutes or an hour, and they all get an introduction to the Bard that they wouldn’t ordinarily.” The tradition dates back 17 years and was inherited by The Drilling Company, which relies on word-of-mouth and the element of surprise to attract an audience. All perfor-

mances are free. “The only thing I ever ask is I put out a hat at the end of the show and we say, ‘If you’ve got something to throw in, it’s much appreciated,’” says Clancy, who is directing Richard III through Aug. 17. The bare-boned but enthusiastic summer productions have as many as 77 plastic chairs that are placed in rows around a section of concrete that acts as the stage “People just come, chairs get moved back, blankets get put out,” Clancy says. But the challenges of putting on a show have gotten harder,

thanks to the city. Until now, authorities had allowed the 25-member company to perform relatively unhassled, but a municipal rule change now requires it to pay for eight parking spots per night and also get additional insurance. Total bill this summer: $2,400. “For a small operation that’s operating off the bucket, a $2,400 hit is no small hit, right?” asks Clancy, who seems more bemused than bitter. The Drilling Company’s entire yearly budget is less than $16,000. He’s appealed for help, and although he’s had some ver-

bal support from City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, no relief so far. Still, the company won’t stop cars from parking in their eight designated spots — they’re unwilling to anger residents — but won’t consider charging audience members. “I’ve always believed the way we did it was the best way to do it,” Clancy says. “That way it honors the community that wants to park just as much as it honors the community of people just watching the show. Once the city says, ‘Well, you have to pay for it,’ then we have to start charging and that’s not right.”

NEW YORK — A Discovery network special that speculated about whether a giant prehistoric shark could still exist has drawn a passionate response from viewers and starkly raised the question about the worth of big ratings. The program, Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives, opened Discovery’s annual “Shark Week” during the weekend. With an estimated 4.8 million viewers, it had the largest audience of any show in the 26 years that Discovery has made “Shark Week” a part of its summer programming, the Nielsen company said. Yet it drew a heated response online from viewers who said airing a “mockumentary” compromises the network’s reputation. “It’s the ultimate ‘Shark Week’ fantasy,” said Michael Sorensen, Discovery’s senior director of programming. “The stories have been out there for years, and with 95 percent of the ocean unexplored, who really knows?” Discovery’s “Shark Week” Web page and Facebook and Twitter sites filled after the show with complaints from fans who objected to the program, saying they were surprised a science-based network seriously discussed the existence of a fearsome creature when there is no evidence it exists today. In a blog post, actor Wil Wheaton said he is a regular viewer of “Shark Week” but that he was disgusted by the show. He said Discovery owes an apology to viewers who have grown to trust the network for its presentation of science. “Discovery Channel betrayed that trust during its biggest viewing week of the year,” Wheaton wrote. “Discovery Channel isn’t run by stupid people, and this was not some kind of a mistake. Someone made a deliberate choice to present a work of fiction that is more suited for the SyFy channel as a truthful and factual documentary. That is disgusting.”

would profit from. Infante said the NCAA doesn’t write out specific penalties for violating the bylaws. Instead, punishments tend to be written out in the student-athlete reinstatement guidelines. He said the NCAA will likely consider precedence and the totality of the circumstances, such as whether Manziel made a profit, whether he did it repeatedly and all circumstances of any evidence the NCAA finds. As for precedence, Infante said the NCAA typically considers the amount of money in question. For a profit of less than $300, he said, students will typically see no suspension and be ordered to repay the money. For up to $500, athletes may be suspended for 10 percent of the season, or one-to-two games, and could be suspended for 30 percent of the season for receiving more than $1,000. “It’s not just about the amount of money they receive — if you go well above the scale, like this mythical five-figure payoff would be, then you might be get-

of law, so the player doesn’t have the due process protections as if they were in a court setting.” He said the investigation does not fall in the NCAA compliance and enforcement division and would instead be a matter of student-athlete reinstatement. He said Manziel would be able to appeal if an investigation finds that he did knowingly sell his autograph for money.

MANZIEL: Could face suspension Continued from A1

The broker, who said Manziel said he wanted money for new rims for his vehicle, told ESPN that he does not intend to cooperate with the ongoing NCAA investigation of Manziel. Following practice, at almost 8 p.m., Manziel walked through the McFerrin Indoor Center with his bright cleats in his hand, escorted by a university policemen. He glanced at the media throng to his left and continued in his path, out the door and back into the Bright Complex. ESPN’s Outside The Lines reported Sunday that Manziel allegedly agreed to a “five-figure flat fee” with autograph broker Drew Tieman for signing memorabilia in Miami during Manziel’s visit to the site of the 2013 BCS Championship game in January. NCAA bylaw 12.5.2.1 prohibits a player from accepting money for promotion or sale of a product or service. On Monday, ESPN reported that a second autograph dealer alleged that Nathan Fitch, Manziel’s close friend who was hired by his parents to be his personal assistant, told him Manziel wanted payment to sign autographs. The East Coast broker who emerged Tuesday said that Finch wasn’t in Connecticut during the transaction. A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said during Monday’s media day that the team and university was doing its “due diligence to find the facts” regarding Manziel. He was asked three questions about Manziel immediately when he addressed the media following Tuesday’s practice and, each time, deferred to university spokesperson Jason Cook. “As far as football goes, I can talk to you about all that,” Sumlin said. “There’s not a whole lot I can say about [Manziel’s situation].” Cook said Sunday that the university doesn’t “respond to such questions concerning specific student-athletes.” He was reached Tuesday and said, in a text message, “We do not have any additional information to share at this time.” Autographs and memorabilia is a giant industry that puts college players’ eligibility in peril. Manziel isn’t the only one under scrutiny. USC launched an investigation into star wide receiver Marquise Lee after some of his autographs had appeared for sale online. USC said Lee did not violate any NCAA rules. The school’s compliance office investigated the autographs, decided Lee did not receive payment and cleared him of any wrongdoing. At last look, Manziel doesn’t havethemostautographeditems for sale on eBay, either. South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney had 241 items to Manziel’s 229. Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller has 133 items for sale on eBay, and Alabama quarterback AJ MacCarron has 97 items for sale. Manziel hasn’t spoken to the media since the allegations

dividual is not eligible for commercial compensation for his likeness or name. “The NCAA wants to make money, and if we allow the kids to make money, they can’t control the cash flow of college sports,” Johnson said. “Amateurism isn’t defined by money, it’s defined by ideals.” Johnson said Manziel is in the position to challenge the amateurism status that prohibits student-athletes from making money off their names and likenesses. He said Manziel’s name recognition and prestige, as well as the potential damages that would come from being ruled ineligible, would be enough for Manziel to hire a big-name lawyer to challenge the NCAA’s rule. “What you have to understand is, the underlying story is who gets the money — there’s a huge amount of money out there, and Texas A&M wants money and the SEC wants the money,” Johnson said. “This is all about those entities keeping the money.” The NCAA did not return requests for clarification on its bylaws.

Yemen again at forefront of fight against terror By AHMED AL-HAJ and MATTHEW LEE Associated Press

SANAA, Yemen — Yemen was thrust back into the forefront of the international fight against terrorism Tuesday when the U.S. and Britain evacuated embassy staff due to a threatened attack, a suspected U.S. drone killed four alleged members of al-Qaida, and militants shot down a Yemeni army helicopter. As Westerners flew out of the country, Yemeni authorities launched a wide investigation into the al-Qaida threat to multiple potential targets in the impoverished Arab nation. Security officials said they believed the terror network was seeking retalia-

tion for a U.S.-backed military offensive that has dealt serious setbacks to the terror network’s most active branch, including the death earlier this year of its No. 2 leader. The Yemeni army, meanwhile, surrounded foreign installations, government offices and the airport with tanks and troops in the nation’s capital, Sanaa, as well as the strategic Bab al-Mandeb straits at the entrance to the Red Sea in the southern Arabian Peninsula, drawing parallels with security measures following the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole in Adenharborthatkilled17American sailors. Authorities also set up checkpoints across Sanaa, searching cars and individuals, especially

U.S. embassy closures a window into threat concern By MATTHEW LEE Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The map of closed American embassies — and those that remain open — in the Middle East and Africa provides a window into the Obama administration’s concern about a potentially imminent al-Qaida terrorist attack on overseas U.S. interests. While diplomatic missions across a broad swath of the Arab world are affected, some, including in capitals that have been targets for extremists in the past, are not. And those chosen for closure in Africa and the Indian Ocean suggest that the fear may be as much about the vulnerability of certain embassies and staff and the range of increasingly mobile terrorists as it is about specific threats. One apparently key factor: How significant is the security that is now in place? A total of 19 U.S. embassies and

consulates in 16 countries have been ordered to close to the publicuntilSaturday.Theyrunalong a jagged, east-to-south crescent from Libya through the Persian Gulf to Rwanda and include the island nations of Madagascar and Mauritius, That’s fewer missions in fewer nations than were ordered closed this past Sunday in the administration’s initial response to intelligence that alQaida in the Arabian Peninsula was gearing up for an attack. The changes, coupled with the inclusions and omissions, show how the threat analysis has evolved. According to the State Department, the closures are all the result of the same intelligence on the threat. Yet, that intelligence stream appears to be significantly diffuse, covering embassies and other posts stretching 4,800 miles from Tripoli, Libya, to Port Louis, Mauritius, and not limited to Muslim or Muslimmajority nations.

after night fell. Top government officials, along with military and security commanders, were told to stay vigilant and limit their movements. Although the immediate threat seemed to be focused on Yemen, the U.S. has temporarily shut down 19 diplomatic posts in the Middle East and Africa. A U.S.

intelligence official and a Mideast diplomat told The Associated Press that the closures were triggered by the interception of a secret message between al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri and Nasser al-Wahishi, the leader of the Yemen-based al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, about plans for a major terror attack. The

officials spoke on condition of anonymitybecausetheywerenot authorized to discuss the matter publicly. Zawahri also made a public statement on July 30 that exhorted Muslims to kill Americans “in every spot on Earth.” Yemeni investigators looking into the threat said they believe the motive of the attack was re-

taliation for the killing of Saudiborn Saeed al-Shihri, who was released from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay after nearly six years and later became the No. 2 al-Qaida leader in Yemen. Al-Shihri was critically wounded in a November drone strike and later died of his wounds, the militant group acknowledged.

REGENTS: To set in motion a search for new university president to replace Loftin

hand man of sorts for System Chancellor John Sharp, an executive vice chancellor and chief financial officer. The system’s six vice chancellors would report to the new position, which would be directly accountable to the chancellor. The man tapped to fill the lofty spot is Billy C. Hamilton, who worked for Sharp during his tenure as Texas comptroller. Hamilton received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Texas and spent more than 25 years working in the comptroller’s office. After leaving the comptroller’s office

in 2006, Hamilton has operated a private consulting practice focusing on tax, policy research, management and government business strategy. “I have had the privilege to work with Billy directly when he was my deputy state comptroller, and his appreciation of our mission, experience in managing complex entities and history of excellence will make him a great fit for our system,” said Sharp in a press release. “If we are to maintain our momentum, it will require a more balanced and experienced team. Bottom line: Billy Hamilton is the most respected person inside state government and will make a pos-

itive difference from Day One.” It is unclear how much Hamilton would get paid in the position if the regents choose to create it. A system spokesman on Tuesday declined to comment and said the salary would be discussed by the regents when they consider the creation of the position. Still, the position would fall below the chancellor, who makes $507,000 annually, and the vice chancellors, who make around $250,000-plus a year. The regents are also set to approve the fiscal year 2014 budgets for the system and its member schools. It is unclear what the proposed budgets are or how they are different from

years past. Spokespeople from the system and Texas A&M University said they could not release information about the proposed budgets until after the regents had voted. The system will also set into motion a search to find a new president for Texas A&M, following the unexpected July announcement by R. Bowen Loftin. Loftin, who said he is resigning to spend more time with students, will step down on Jan. 13 and said he made the decision before the regents meeting to give them time to find a replacement.

The regents will vote to authorize Sharp to execute an agreement with Loftin that will outline how he will transition out of the role. A system spokesman declined to comment on details about the agreement and said the chancellor was still working on it. Loftin’s predecessor, Elsa Murano, who was paid $295,000 when she resigned, received $425,000 for one year of development leave and took a $260,000-per-year faculty position, according to her transition agreement. Sharp previously indicated that Loftin’s going-away

bonus could be greater. The regents are also set to adopt a resolution honoring Loftin and to authorize Sharp to “establish a presidential search advisory committee and to perform all acts necessary to facilitate the presidential search process at Texas A&M University.” Other agenda items include: • An update on the 25 by 25 initiative, which seeks to grow the engineering department enrollment to 25,000 by the year 2025, by Dean Katherine Banks. • A legislative update by Guy Diedrich, vice chancellor for federal and state relations.

She continued, “I think the world of [James]. Sometimes he wears the devil out of me, but I’m very thankful for him.” While Young is grateful to still be alive, she said her heart is breaking knowing all her belongings and sentimental items are gone forever. For now, Young is staying with her granddaughter in an apartment down the road, which is also where James and his mother live. She said her apartment complex is supposed to be finding her a place to live. Attempts to reach management at the apartments were unsuccessful. Mark Felton, executive director of the American Red Cross Heart of Texas Chapter, said displaced families were offered shelter at a nearby senior center, but the residents were able to find

other places to stay with family members or friends. He said the Red Cross has been helping those who lost their property with food, clothing and medical attention. Authorities said they are still investigating the cause of the fire and are working with the State Fire Marshal’s Office in doing so. James’ family said they weren’t surprised the young boy was able to think so quickly on his feet, that looking out for his family has always been a quality of his. “He’s very swift on things,” said James’ greataunt, Peggy Bell. “He tries to be the young man of the house.” Wilborn, his mother, said she was more than proud of her son for saving something so precious to her and the one thing in the apartment that couldn’t be replaced — her grandmother.

Decisions, Decisions Every hour of every day, we make decisions. There are routine decisions, like deciding the time of going to bed and when to get going to wherever one needs to be next. There are periodic decisions, like when needing to move money from savings to one’s checking account. There are more extraordinary decisions, like needing to make a change in one’s

place of work, or school, or significant relationships. The month of August includes events related to numerous extraordinary decisions. Often the “big” decisions of where one attends school or teaches and of where one will reside for an upcoming term have been made weeks and perhaps months before. The actual implementation of those decisions, however, occurs in August. When the lines at grocery, home-supply, or office-supply stores are longer this August than they were in July, say a prayer for all who are making decisions, some extraordinarily in the midst of a transition or

life-change, or coping with a severe and unwanted challenge, or accepting a new but expected assignment; and say a prayer for others, including yourself, amid the daily rhythm of responsibilities.

Python’s strangling of boys probed

AP photo

As French dining changes, so does law “true cuisine” and force the fakers — who would have to find a more appropriate word, such as “caterer” — to fess up. The harsher measure died in the Assembly earlier this year, but Fasquelle and his cohorts plan to propose it again in September. The legislative pushes have parallels to requirements French bakeries were subjected to in 1998, when the word “boulangerie” was legally reserved for establishments that made bread from scratch — and using a freezer at any point in the process strictly prohibited. Amid the parliamentary uproar, most French workers — increasingly pressed for time and money — are unlikely to probe too deeply. Lunches that have traditionally run two hours or even three hours in the south are being cut short by the modern work day. According to a 2011 study, the French midday break is down to an average of 22 minutes, compared with nearly 90 minutes two decades ago. And a study this spring found that a fifth of French workers are bringing their food from home to eat at work — double the percentage just three years ago, according to a survey this spring from industry consultant Gira Conseil. According to the study, fast food expenditures have surpassed traditional restaurants for the first time, making up 54 percent of receipts. But don’t think that French fast food means strictly McDonald’s, whose sales in France are slumping this year, according to their most recent quarterly results.

TORONTO — A 100-pound python blamed in the strangling deaths of two Canadian boys apparently escaped from its enclosure, slithered through a ventilation system and fell through the ceiling into the room where the young brothers were sleeping, authorities said Tuesday. A snake expert said it was possible that the python was spooked and simply clung to whatever it landed on. Police are treating the deaths in Campbellton, New Brunswick, as a criminal investigation. Autopsies on Noah Barthe, 5, and his brother Connor Barthe, 7, werebeing performed Tuesday. The brothers had been visiting the apartment of a friend whose father owned an exotic pet store on the floor below, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Alain Tremblay said at a news conference in Campbellton. Tremblay said the African rock python was being kept inside the second floor apartment, not inside the pet store as authorities had previously stated. Steve Benteau, a spokesman for the provincial Natural Resources Department, said no permit was issued for an African rock python and the province wasn’t aware it was being kept at the apartment. The department said the snake is generally only permitted in accredited zoos, un-

Police said the snake was killed by a veterinarian. It was sent for a necropsy to confirm the type of snake and help understand what may have caused it to attack. Family spokesman Dave Rose, the boys’ great-uncle, said the brothers had spent Monday at Savoie’s family farm and played with different animals before staying over at the apartment.

PARIS — The country that gave us the words restaurant, bistro and cuisine is changing how it eats. For the first time in France, fast food overtook traditional restaurant receipts as the economic crisis deepened, and the share of people who pack a lunch for work is rising faster by the year. Meanwhile, lurid reports of the increasing number of traditional restaurants resorting to frozen, pre-packaged meals to hold down their prices have shaken France’s sense of culinary identity. French lawmakers have swung into action to protect their cuisine, which the government officially considers a matter of national pride — even to the point of persuading UNESCO in 2010 to put French cuisine on its World Heritage List. “I don’t want chefs replaced by microwaves,” said Daniel Fasquelle, a lawmaker in the French Assembly who voted recently for a measure that would require restaurants to print “fait maison” — or homemade — on menus next to dishes that were created from scratch. Fasquelle said the legislation, which was approved in the lower house and goes to the Senate in the fall, is weaker than what he and other culinary warriors want, but represents a step in the right direction. Fasquelle is part of a movement seeking to limit what can be called a “restaurant” to places where more than half the food is made in-house. The idea is to protect

Texas A&M dean named to U.s. board

Ryan Crocker, dean of Texas A&M’s Bush School of Government and Public Service, has been named one of three new members of the Broadcasting Board of Governors. Joining him are Jeffrey Shell, president of NBC Universal International, and Matthew C. Armstrong, author and strat- CroCker egist on public diplomacy topics. Their appointments have been confirmed by the U.S. Senate, making way for a swearing-in ceremony conducted by President Barack Obama. All three were unanimously confirmed by the Senate, which selected Shell as chair of the board, according to a press release. The board of governors is an independent, bipartisan federal agency that supervises government-supported civilian international media. According to the Broadcasting Board of Governors’ website, the board’s mission is “to inform, engage and connect people around the world in support of freedom and democracy,” As a former ambassador to Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Syria, Kuwait and Lebanon, Crocker’s career as a foreign-service specialist spans 37 years. The dean also is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Board of Trustees of Whitman College. In an interview on Friday with TAMU Times, Cocker said “I am deeply honored to have the confidence of the president and the Senate for the position of governor. Getting America’s message out to the world is vitally important, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on the board to ensure we are as effective as possible.”

rugged, elderly gentleman with a thick, white mustache and gray hair billowing from his cowboy hat tugged on the reins of his horse as he rode off into the sunset in a crisp, white shirt, starched jeans and a $300 pair of boots. “This is a dream probably many of us have,” said Dr. Bruce Carpenter, an associate professor at Texas A&M, as he flipped to the Hollywood portrayal of the rancher. “In reality, how much of your time in cattle operation is spent doing that? Truthfully, probably less than 10 percent of your time is spent doing that. Another 80 percent of your time is spent repairing those fences in the foreground and fightin’ that mesquite in the background.”

Carpenter, an AgriLife Extension livestock specialist, along with Dr. Ron Gill, also a Texas A&M professor and extension livestock specialist, delivered the “Retiring to Ranching” presentation to a room full of 100-plus attend-

ees as part of the 59th Annual Texas A&M Beef Cattle Short Course coordinated by Texas AgriLife Extension and the department of animal science. The lecture was one among dozens of “cattleman’s college seminars” at the three-

day conference that began Monday and extends through Wednesday afternoon. “Why in the world do you want to retire to ranching?” Carpenter asked, rhetorically, to laughs from the audience. “Those two things, they don’t fit well in the same sentence. When we think of retiring, we think of doing less.” The theme of the seminar was not to discourage attendees from retiring as ranchers, Carpenter and Gill said, but to make people aware of the challenges the job can bring and prepare them to set goals. “What is your plan?

House begins border security review By CHrISToPHer SHerMan Associated Press

MISSION — The chairman of the House Homeland Security committee said Tuesday in South Texas that the U.S. Border Patrol’s resources in the area are “woefully inadequate.” U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, made the comments after cruising the Rio Grande with Border Patrol and Texas Department of Public Safety officials in Mission. McCaul’s House bill calling for a plan to secure the border is expected to be the first of several immigration-related bills taken up after the chamber’s August re-

cess. McCaul is also leading a group of congressman along the border, stopping this weekend in California and Arizona. Accompanying McCaul on Tuesday were U.S. Reps. Kevin Yoder, R-Kansas, and Leonard Lance, R-New Jersey. The stakes of immigration reform were made evident to the group when they encountered a body floating in the Rio Grande on Tuesday. “My colleagues and I saw firsthand the tragedies of this border and the loss of life when we saw a body floating just a few minutes ago on this river,” McCaul said. “And that is a sad fact of this border.” Border Patrol spokesman Daniel Tirado said the body was recovered later by the

Mission Fire Department. McCaul’s bill is a stark contrast to the comprehensive immigration reform bill that passed the Senate. The House has rejected that and is instead taking up individual components that so far do not include a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million people living in the country illegally. His measure describes a list of metrics that homeland security officials would have to report to Congress, which would be used to determine what sort of resources work and what is needed where. “In this sector, it’s woefully inadequate,” McCaul said. “This sector probably needs

The Bryan City Council heard a workshop presentation Tuesday about potentially upgrading and widening Texas Avenue to help make the stretch of road more aesthetically pleasing, spur development and add traffic capacity. The presentation brought forward three options for widening the right of way along the street, which is currently 100 feet. The first option will give the street a six-lane width and increase the right of way by 45 feet; the second option will give the street a four-lane width and increase the right of way by 20 feet; and the third option will give the street a four-lane width and use existing right of way. The 145-foot option will include about 22 feet of right of way on each side, with a six-foot bike lane and three 12-foot lanes in each direction. It would increase road capacity for traffic to about 60,000 vehicles per day, and the city expects the redevelopment would spur development and improve aesthetics. It would require purchasing 114 buildings to make the expansion, which would cost almost $17 million, with 407 easements costing $6 million. There would be an additional $125 million in construction costs, bringing the total cost estimate to about $148 million. A second, 120-foot option would give 22 feet of right of way on each side of Texas Avenue, with two six-foot bike lanes and two 12-foot lanes going each way. The road could handle about 40,000 vehicles per day, and the city would need to

QUOTE OF THE DAY “The current climate does not build confidence nor lay the groundwork for talks or real reconciliation.”

CRYSTAL DUPRÉ, Publisher KELLY BROWN, Editor ROBERT C. BORDEN, Opinions editor letters@theeagle.com

lETTERS TO THE EDITOR Build a better society so women won’t need abortions

O

ur country has many problems for which we never seem to be able to find solutions. The War on Drugs is an example, abortion is another. We have passed laws to criminalise the use of many drugs. The result is that we have filled the prisons with users and providers. The drug lords are as strong as ever. Consider Prohibition. Did it cure alcoholism? No, people drank more than ever and the Mafia grew rich. If we had taken the approach of determining why people abuse the use of alcohol or drugs, we might have been able to cure their addiction. I do not claim this approach would be quick or easy, but success would be measurable by the reduction in use or abuse of drugs and alcohol, with a decent life for former addicts. The situation with abortion is similar. Passing a law to ban abortion will not stop the process; it will just be done in secret, possibly by charlatans, often with great harm to the woman. A woman has to be desperate to subject herself to an abortion. My guess is that poverty is a major cause; however, there are undoubtedly many more reasons. Given the low wages paid today and, with no health care or affordable child care, how could women possibly manage? In a sense, our lack of understanding and care for their situation has failed them. We need to understand what drives women to this position, what courses of action will remedy the situation, and then act on them. In the process we will build a better society so that women will not require abortions.

Was council afraid to ask voters to OK Kyle funding?

T

he College Station City Council recently worked out a deal with Texas A&M University to commit around $14 million to help pay for the renovation of Kyle Field over the next 30 years in exchange for reduced “use rates” for certain campus buildings. None of the council members will be on the council for most of those years, so why not mortgage the future? An important issue is how the voters feel about this. It would appear to me that the council did not want to ask us this question. Council members probably rationalized that the hotel/motel tax funds being used to underwrite this is money “out-of-towners” pay to the city, but we pay it to other cities any time we travel, so it is just another tax, another “redistribution of income tax” if you will. Those community groups who partially depend on the hotel/motel tax funds for their local activities now will have to compete for a smaller pool of money; after all, someone has to pay for this. I hope the voters of College Station will remember this “deal” at the next city council election. Jess Fields was the only councilman to vote against the agreement (thank you, very much). Just remember how many local governments have gotten into financial troubles when they mortgage the future by making these long-term financial commitments. It’s just as if the city council approved an expensive bond issue without ever having asked the voters if they wanted to approve it. Perhaps the council knew how the voters would react and were afraid to have to tell A&M “no thanks.”

Thanks to Agency on Aging and Methodist ARMY for help

W

e would like to commend the Brazos Valley Area Agency on Aging for helping senior citizens in Bryan-College

Station. Recently, we needed some help around the house. The Agency matched us with a group of wonderful young people from the United Methodist Action Reach-out Mission by Youth (U.M. ARMY). Young people from The Woodlands come to our area every summer. On July 25, Clayton, Brian, Alley and Katy under Annette’s supervision came to our house. They did a great job in helping us by mowing grass, painting and cleaning all around. They also gave much needed cheer to my husband, along with moral support and hugs. In addition to being so impressed with their friendliness and polite manners, we greatly appreciated all their help. Special thanks to Chad Runeberg who leads the group and Susie Brown from the Agency on Aging.

Is it time to end college faculty tenure?

M

illions of 18-year-olds are excited about heading to college this month — leaving home, making friends and taking courses that meet only a few hours a week. On the first day of classes, however, they may be startled to find that the professor who enters Calculus I or Intro to Philosophy is more than a half-century older than they are. The phenomenon of the teacher who sticks around well past age 70 has been widely noted, yet colleges have had little success in mitigating its impact. A survey commissioned by Fidelity Investments and reported at Inside Higher Ed in June found that “some 74 percent of professors aged 49-67 plan to delay retirement past age 65 or never retire at all.” Never retire at all? Another study cited in the article, this one using National Science Foundation data, calculated that since the 1970s only 28 percent of higher education faculty had retired by age 65. Think of this from an employer’s point of view. In today’s economy, is there any worse policy than guaranteeing an employee the same job for 40-plus years, even if he or she meets few of the organization’s needs and costs a lot in the bargain? That’s what tenure ensures. An assistant professor comes up for promotion at about age 35, and if the candidate qualifies, the school maintains him or her until the professor (or death) decides otherwise. Granting tenure in 2010 commits the school to that employee until

MARK BAUERLEIN 2050 or beyond. If a major was popular in the 1980s, and a school hired and tenured professors in response, the school keeps them regardless of how many majors the field has in 2010. The college not only has no flexibility to shift the workforce when demand goes down — a professor of sociology can’t shift to chemistry — but also has to pay a higher cost for the employee every year (because of ordinary salary adjustments, pension contributions and medical coverage). Take the case of French professors. According to the Modern Language Association, the discipline recorded 248,000 course enrollments in 1980 in accredited, not-forprofit institutions (including two-year schools). In 1990, the number rose to 272,000, and in those heady years a certain number of faculty members hired to teach those courses won tenure. Since then, enrollments have dipped more than 20 percent, averaging about 207,000 for the past 10 years. For German, the drop is worse: 133,000 in 1990 to 95,000 today. Obviously, some of these professors aren’t needed now. But, ever since 1994, when mandatory retirement rules were ended, administrators can’t make them leave. As Columbia professor Mark

Taylor put it in 2010, “Tenure decisions render illiquid a significant percentage of endowments at the precise moment when more flexibility is required.” The only way to force a tenured professor out is to close an entire department, a step a few schools have taken. But no ambitious dean likes to face the fracas that ensues. When the State University of New York at Albany, for example, cut five low-enrollment humanities programs, an National Public Radio story on it highlighted the “outcry” that followed, which “resonated with the public and the press.” Most professors in slipping fields don’t notice the effects much. Tenure frees them from worrying about student interest. They love having smaller classes and fewer papers to grade. The standard course universities have taken is to offer buyout packages to accelerate retirements. But that old tactic no longer may work. It’s not just the bad job market. In the Fidelity survey, professors ranked personal reasons more often than financial concerns for continuing to work. Only 55 percent declared that uncertainty over having enough money to retire comfortably was their main reason for staying, while 89 percent said they “want to stay busy and productive” and 64 percent said they “love the work too much to give it up.” What’s a manager to do when an expensive and notso- productive 73-year-old worker can’t be released or reassigned? The obvious

answer is to stop the process before it starts, and use more nontenured instructors. In 1969, tenured and tenuretrack faculty amounted to 78 percent of the higher education workforce. By 2009, that rate had slipped to 33 percent, even as the number of professors older than 65 doubled from 2000 to 2011, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports. Faculty leaders complain about the trend, citing the bad wages and benefits in nontenured employment. But the Fidelity survey explains why administrators have no choice. Tenure started 100 years ago as a way to preserve academic freedom, not to keep employees in place 10 years past customary retirement age. The continued resistance to reform shows arrogant disregard for rising college costs for students, for meritocratic decision-making and for academic innovation. The current method of converting tenured slots to nontenured ones is too slow. We need another incentive, and there is none more powerful among selective institutions than the U.S. News rankings, which scare administrators every year. What if the rankings included another variable: “Percentage of professors over age 65”? No university wants to top that list, and we can be sure that once it appears, a whole new set of creative solutions to the never-retiring professor will be found. • Mark Bauerlein is a professor of English at Emory University and the author of The Dumbest Generation.

crossing the border illegally had fallen for several years, the number of arrests has surged in the southernmost tip of Texas — more than 120,000 since Oct. 1, an increase of more than 50 percent on the same period last year, Tirado said. Most of that growth has come from what the Border Patrol terms “other-thanMexicans,” primarily Central American immigrants who take the more direct route from their countries into the U.S. The sector is about to see a bump in personnel.

His rural county about an hour north of the border has been stretched in recent years by the number of bodies found on its arid ranches. Martinez said 52 bodies had been recovered in his county since Jan. 1. A record 129 bodies were recovered in the county in all of 2012. “Anything that’s going to deter, save lives is welcome,” he said.

HASAN: Helped clear area of civilians Continued from A9 his pants pockets to conceal the sounds of rattling ammunition as he walked through a deployment-readiness center on the sprawling base. “He came to believe he had a jihad duty to murder his fellow soldiers,” Henricks said, adding that Hasan researched Taliban leaders’ call to wage holy war. The government has also said Hasan sent more than a dozen emails starting in December 2008 to Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical U.S.-born Islamic cleric killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. The shooting happened about three weeks after Hasan learned he would be deploying to Afghanistan. Upon getting the orders that he was going overseas, Hasan told a base doctor that, “They’ve got another thing coming if they think they are going to deploy me,” Henricks said. On the day of the attack, Hasan sat among his fellow soldiers who were preparing to go overseas. He tried to clear the area of civilians, even walking over to a civilian data clerk to tell her she was needed elsewhere in the building because a supervisor was looking for her. The prosecutor said the clerk thought that was odd but went anyway. “He then yelled ‘Allahu akbar!’ and opened fire on unarmed, unsuspecting and defenseless soldiers,” Henricks told the jury. During Tuesday’s proceedings, Hasan mostly looked down or straight ahead, occasionally leafing through paperwork with his right hand while seated at the defense table. Acting as his own attorney, he politely addressed witnesses from his wheelchair, wearing green Army fatigues and a gray, bushy beard. But Hasan didn’t pass on a chance to cross-examine his former supervisor, who had given Hasan high marks on an evaluation the very week of what Hasan would only call “the incident.” Mumbling and stumbling over his questions — at one point mispronouncing his own name — Hasan asked retired Lt. Col. Ben Phillips a series of questions about “medical personnel initiating mercy killings.” He also appeared to ask about a water supply in Iraq being contaminated with gas.

By LINDSEY TANNER Associated Press

CHICAGO — Combat appears to have little or no influence on suicide rates among U.S. troops and veterans, according to a military study that challenges the conventional thinking about war’s effects on the psyche. Depression and other types of mental illness, alcohol problems and being male — strong risk factors for suicide among civilians — were all linked to self-inflicted deaths among current and former members of the military. But the researchers found deployment and combat did not raise the risk. “The findings from this study are not consistent with the assumption that specific deployment-related characteristics, such as length of deployment, number of deployments, or combat experiences, are directly associated” with suicides, the authors wrote. The results echo smaller studies focusing on a specific branch of the military, but this is the first to look at a sampling from the entire military population, said lead author Cynthia LeardMann, a researcher with the Naval Health Research Center in San Diego. More than 145,000 people from all branches took part, including active-duty service members, reservists and retirees, and they were followed from 2001 to 2008, a period in which the U.S. waged wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The findings were published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. A recent increase in the military suicide rate has raised concerns about a possible link between suicide and combat, including long or repeated tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. But the new study should lay those concerns to rest, said Dr. Nancy Crum-Cianflone, another researcher with the Navy center. She is leading a larger study on the health effects of serving in the military. The newly released findings are based on a subset of participants in that study. The 2001-08 study looked at a

time, there was an increase in the number of people with mental illness in the military. The reason for that is unclear, the study authors said. The suicide rate in the general population also increased in recent years, to almost 18 per 100,000 in 2010, according to a JAMA editorial.

Former deputy ‘Atomic vet’ saw atom bombs drop convicted in South Texas drug case E By DIANA WASHINGTON VALDEZ El Paso Times

He scheduled a hearing for Wednesday afternoon to hear argumentsthatGarzashouldbe allowed to remain free on bond while awaiting sentencing. The corrupt officers were cooperating with a local drug trafficker to steal drug loads for resale. Sometimes the trafficker would tell a client that he was moving the drugs from the border and would bring the client along. Prosecutors said Garza would wait at a pre-arranged location down the road in his Hidalgo County sheriff’s office vehicle. Once the load vehicle passed, he would pull out and turn on his lights. It would appear that a traffic stop occurred on a side road just out of view. The client would think his load had been seized by authorities, but, really, it would be resold. Garza’s attorney, Lilly Ann Gutierrez, tried to draw jurors’ attention to alleged corruption within the sheriff’s department that reached all the way to the top. When Gutierrez subpoenaed Trevino, the courtroom benches filled with curious observers.

By CHRISTOPHER SHERMAN Associated Press

McALLEN — A federal jury convicted a former South Texas deputy sheriff Tuesday for his role in a drug conspiracy, making him the ninth law enforcement officer convicted in the case. Jurors needed only a couple of hours Tuesday before coming back with the verdict that found former Hidalgo County sheriff’s Deputy Jorge Garza guilty. He was accused of taking part in a scheme to steal from drug traffickers and resell the drugs. Eight other officers charged in the case had all pleaded guilty. Garza’s role was overshadowed in the latter half of the trial as his attorney called on those up the chain of command, culminating with two days of testimony from Sheriff Lupe Trevino. The Trevinocreated rogue drug task force, calledthePanamaUnit,wasthe target of a broad investigation. U.S. District Judge Randy Crane ordered that Garza be taken into custody Tuesday.

1946 he participated in two atom bomb tests as part of “Operation Crossroads” at the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific. Ornelas was standing less than 16 miles from the blast of the first bomb. “I was on a sea vessel when we were directed to close our eyes and not look at the blast,” Ornelas said. “I bent my head and covered my face with my arms. Later, my right arm, which was more exposed than the left arm, turned white because of the radiation exposure. The color to my skin returned later.” After both tests, Ornelas said he and others were required to check the damage at both zero points, while there was still radiation at the sites. Over the years, Ornelas developed a host of health ailments, including two different cancers, and he received 100 percent disability in the 1990s under a compensation program for atomic veterans. Veterans were prohibited from discussing their participation in such tests, even with doctors, until the U.S. government lifted the secrecy ban in 1996.

He worked there for about two months. “No one asked us not to say anything, but we didn’t discuss what we saw anyway,” Ornelas said. “I thought to myself then, how would the people of El Paso react if they knew all those bombs were in El Paso.” Ornelas has followed the recent news about low-level radiation contamination discovered in June at a bunker at Biggs, which officials suspect is linked to maintenance on nuclear weapons or related materials in the mid-1950s.

L PASO — The 68th anniversary of the U.S. dropping atomic bombs on Japan, which helped to end World War II, holds a special significance for El Pasoan Gilberto Ornelas. Ornelas, 87, is an “atomic veteran” who also worked briefly as a civilian at Biggs Air Force Base when the Air Force was flying nuclear bombs to and from the former Air Force Base in El Paso. “I was an atomic veteran twice,” Ornelas said. “First, I was in the Pacific with the Navy when the U.S. dropped the two atom bombs in Japan. I also served in Operation Crossroads in 1946. And then I worked at Biggs when the B-36 airplanes were there. “I saw the nuclear bombs [at Biggs] that were brought in for maintenance. They were fat bombs that looked like balls. Some were painted blue and others were painted green. There were lots of them.” Atomic veterans are members of the military who took part in atmospheric and underwater nuclear weapons tests from July 1945 to October 1962, according to the National Association of Atomic Veterans. Those deemed eligible received treatment and or compensation for their service-connected health problems. The former Navy man said he was stationed in New Caledonia when the devastating bombs were dropped on Japan — on Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945, and on Nagasaki on Aug. 9, 1945. “We were preparing to invade Japan, but that didn’t happen because of the bombs,” he told the El Paso Times. “Many people were killed because Japan refused to surrender, but many more lives of U.S. soldiers were saved.” While Ornelas was not near Japan during the first and only U.S. atomic bomb attack against an enemy country, in

IN BRIEF

Wine of the Week

2010 Fattoria Selvapiana Chianti Rufina The Chianti region is large, and while the wines from the central Classico part of it are the bestknown, for price and quality look to the lesser-known Chianti Rufina, a small area in the northeastern corner of Chianti proper. Selvapiana is one of the best estates in Rufina, turning out first-rate Sangiovesebased reds. I’ve been buying its Chianti for years, keeping it on hand for pasta nights and grilled skirt steak or chops. A deep ruby in color, the 2010 Selvapiana tastes of bright cherries and plums, but a touch of earth gives it some weight. A great everyday Chianti. Region: Chianti Rufina Price: $15 to $20 Style: Easy drinking and earthy What it goes with: Pasta dishes, grilled meats, roast chicken — S. Irene Virbila

Tidbits: Grab a Nutella for on the go — or not Nutella, the European hazelnut and cocoa spread, had gone forever without launching spinoffs. Now, perhaps in response to the recent appearance of Jif’s two hazelnut spreads, Nutella introduces Nutella & Go! (the exclamation point is part of the name, not an indication of how hard Mr. Tidbit would stress this news). Nutella & Go! is a small twocompartment 1.8-ounce plastic tub. On one side are a dozen or so little (3-inch) breadstick dippers, weighing about half an ounce total; the other compartment contains the Nutella, presumably for dipping when you’re on the run and can’t stop to spread it on bread or crackers. Such “convenience,” of course, comes at a price: At one store, where a 13-ounce jar of Nutella costs $4.04 (31 cents an ounce), the little packet of Nutella & Go! is $1.64. Mr. Tidbit doesn’t know how much you think the breadsticks should cost; they’re nothing special — just dippers. At 31 cents an ounce, the 1.3 ounces of Nutella comes to 40 cents, so the breadsticks cost $1.24, 10 cents apiece! (The exclamation point does represent how much Mr. Tidbit would stress this news.)

The sorrow and the pita Keebler’s Town House line of crackers now includes pita crackers, little triangles available in sea salt or Mediterranean herb flavors. Apparently triangularity does not come easily: At the store where Mr. Tidbit saw Town House pitas, the 9.5-ounce box was priced the same as all the other Town House crackers, including the 11.7-ounce boxes of Town House Flip Sides pretzel crackers, 13.5-ounce boxes of Town House Toppers and 16-ouncers of the original and wheat Town House crackers. (Boxes of Town House Flatbread Crisps, with the same shelf price, are, like the pitas, only 9.5 ounces. It seems that flatness is as costly to achieve as triangularity.)

Scents and sensibility Over in the household aisle, Air Wick now offers a six-fragrance National Parks collection of room deodorants, most of them named for offshore locations. Mr. Tidbit admits to being baffled by this concept. At its best, it seems to him, it would engender guests asking “Excuse me, but why does your bathroom smell like American Samoa?” — Al Sicherman

Ice cream flurries f lurries

Mix it up for a chilly DIY treat By ALISON LADMAN Associated Press

N

eed a fresh way to chill out this summer? How about DIY flurries? A flurry is simple — and it isn’t something you can only get at the ice cream shop. You start off with ice cream, usually a basic flavor, then you stir or mix or blend all kinds of things into it. It’s not a float; no liquid is added. It’s like an ice cream sundae, but with the toppings blended in instead of piled on top. Most ice cream shops start with soft serve because it mixes so easily. Since

most of us don’t have soft serve machines in our kitchens (If only!!!), we suggest using a machine you probably do have — a microwave. Start with a pint of ice cream. Remove the lid and microwave it for about 10 seconds. Test it with a spoon. The ice cream should still be frozen but should give when pressed with the back of the spoon. If it’s not ready, continue microwaving in 5-second bursts, testing in between. Now you’re ready to mix. You can keep it simple and just use a spoon to mix the ice cream and toppings in a bowl. But where’s the fun in that? Ice cream shops often use a stick blender, another item you may not have. So instead, toss everything into the food processor and pulse a few times. As for what to use to flavor your flurries? Anything goes. And pile in as many as you can. The more you add, the more delicious it becomes. To help you get started, we’ve come up with a bunch of ideas for delicious, chilly flurries.

Hispanic cheeses Dinner in Minutes: Vermouth have different uses gives salsa salad a little kick D

ear Lisa: Could you tell me the difference between the Mexican cheeses at the store? When a recipe calls for queso fresco, I’m not sure of the difference between them (like queso blanco and panela or cotija). They all look the same. Thank you. — Evelyn H. Dear Evelyn: Hispanic fresh cheese varieties do have a similar flavor and appearance because of the common ingredients they share. The cheese tends to be bland and salty, which complements the spicy sauces traditionally used in Hispanic dishes. Bonus: Hispanic fresh cheeses often keep better than other fresh cheeses — some can be stored for months in the refrigerator. The fresh cheese varieties do have different cooking characteristics though, so you will want to choose according to the results desired in the recipe. There are three main categories of Hispanic cheese. The first, queso fresco, means “fresh cheese” and includes panela and queso blanco. Use these varieties

ere’s a cool salad for a hot summer evening. Roasted chicken served over rice with a black bean and corn salsa can be assembled in just minutes. This recipe dresses up roasted or rotisserie chicken breasts sold in fast food restaurants or the supermarket. Sweet vermouth gives the black bean and corn salsa an intriguing flavor with very little effort. It’s a good way to use up the vermouth that has been in your cupboard for years, or you can buy small bottles called splits. Use the salsa dressing in the recipe or add vermouth and cumin to a bottled, reduced-fat vinaigrette dressing. Any type of white long-grain or quick cooking rice can be used.

WHITE HOUSE DISPUTING INSURANCE ESTIMATES Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Monday that some state reports blaming the Affordable Care Act for sharply higher health-insurance premiums next year were “factually incorrect.” Sebelius didn’t say which states she was referring to, but Republican-led

states such as Ohio, Georgia and Indiana recently warned of large premium increases next year due to the national health-care law. “Erroneous information is being advanced as if these are the final rates available in the marketplace and this is what consumers will be paying,” Sebelius said.

New procedure helps patients with most severe cases

By SUSAN SCHROCK Fort Worth Star-Telegram

FORT WORTH — Taylor Mosley’s asthma flare-ups were so severe that she sometimes wondered when her next wheezing breath might be her last. Mosley, 22, of Fort Worth, has relied on steroids and her rescue inhaler for years to keep her asthma in check but said she still would wind up in the hospital once or twice a month in intensive care, often for days at a time. Her health led her to drop out of college, caused her to miss work and kept her from participating in sports and outdoor activities for fear of triggering an asthma attack, she said. “Emotionally, you just feel like you are going to die any minute,” Mosley said. But a newly available medical treatment has Mosley breathing easier for the first time in years. In March, Mosley was the first patient to undergo the threepart bronchial thermoplasty procedure now offered at Texas Health Southwest Fort Worth for those whose severe asthma cannot be controlled by medication alone. “Now I feel free. I don’t have a ball and chain around my foot, and I can go and start to do the things I want to do,” said Mosley, who has started running and is planning her first camping trip with her family. An estimated 25.9 million Americans have asthma, according to the most recent American Lung Association report. An estimated 5 to 10 percent of those

IN BRIEF Study: Face-lifts have minimal effects LOS ANGELES — Before you spring for that face-lift, take another look in the mirror — the face looking back will only look about three years younger and be no more attractive than it was before surgery, according to a new study. While there’s a long-standing assumption that facial plastic surgery adds beauty and strips years, the idea had never been objectively tested by scientists. A team led by Dr. A. Joshua Zimm of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City assembled a set of 49 patients who received “facial rejuvenation” from 2006 to 2010; they served as test subjects for the study, which was published Thursday in the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery. The patients, whose average age was 57, were photographed before and after their surgery, sans makeup and jewelry. A group of 50 “raters,” comprised of hospital workers and local laypersons, then examined the photographs. The raters underestimated the patients’ true ages, both before and after the surgery. But when the assessments were pooled, the plastic surgery patients looked only 3.1 years younger post-surgery, on average.

Critics say health law may prompt lying WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is trying to quiet growing concern that people will lie about their incomes and other personal information in order to land larger health insurance-premium tax credits, the cash assistance that will help millions pay for coverage next year. Once health plan enrollment begins on new state insurance exchanges in October, an estimated 7 million people are expected to purchase individual and small-group coverage by the end of March. The tax credits aim to help lowand moderate-income people pay for big chunks of their premiums. The credits target people with household incomes between 100 percent and 400 percent of the federal poverty level who can’t get affordable health insurance from their employers. Forty-six percent of uninsured adults and 40 percent of those with individual coverage will be eligible for the federal subsidies, according to the consulting firm Avalere Health. The lower an applicant’s income, the greater the potential tax credit. — Wire reports

muscles that become inflamed during an allergy attack. The heating process limits the muscles’ ability to constrict, making breathing easier for the patient. “People with asthma over time develop thickened airway muscles. When they get an asthma attack, that causes the airway muscles to constrict,” said Duong, who performed the procedure on Mosley. “The idea is that if you deliver thermal energy to the muscles and thin them out, people will have fewer attacks.” Duong said the treatment is the newest non-drug alternative to years of steroid use, which can create long-term health effects including osteoporosis, cataracts and high blood pressure. “Asthma is very common around here. There are not too many alternatives for people with asthma that medications aren’t controlling. A lot of these people end up on steroids and immune-suppressing drugs that have a lot of side effects and their quality of life is terrible,” he said.

Family tradition is in their blood By COURTNEY PERKES The Orange County Register

S

ANTA ANA, Calif. — Every eight weeks, Jerry Wilcox and his son Jeremy roll up their sleeves to do some good while catching up. They each donate a pint of blood to Children’s Hospital of Orange County, Calif., a family tradition that started seven years ago. “It’s something that is fun to do,” said Jeremy, 31. “I look forward to seeing my dad and helping out in whatever way we can.” Jerry, 59, a business software engineer, began donating his Anegative blood to the Red Cross in 1972. He switched to the hospital in 2006 after his daughter, a high school teacher, told him about a pediatric cancer patient who needed blood. He asked Jeremy if he wanted to join him. “It’s kinda neat,” Jerry said. “My dad used to donate with the Red Cross. Maybe I got started because of his influence.” Last year, the children’s hospital collected 67 percent of the blood needed to transfuse patients. The remainder came which explains its limitations: from other blood banks. Dona“Cancer is so limited. It tions typically drop during the cannot cripple love.

Cancer cannot take away love

S

ometimes life hits you like a roundhouse kick, reminding you about what really matters. That happened to me this past week with the life, bravery and fighting spirit of 35-year-old Jen Bulik. I was just about to continue my series on Thomas Jefferson and public education, when I read Jen’s Chuck Norris story. (I’ll pick up that series again in two weeks, after I highlight another amazing story of sacrifice and leadership.) Last December, Jen went to her doctor with a cough, and the young hairdresser was diagnosed with pneumonia. When the cough persisted, doctors ran more tests and discovered that Jen had stage 4 lung cancer, according to the New York Daily News. After five months of intense treatment, Jen’s doctors had to bring her the unfortunate news that it wasn’t helping and that she had six months to live, at the most. Jen and her family were, of course, devastated, and so was her fiance, Jeff Lang. But Jen wasn’t ready to give up. With a positive and hopeful push forward, she let it be known that there was something that she wanted more than anything else: to marry Jeff. So she told her fiance: “Let’s get married. I want to focus on life.” With virtually no time to plan, Jen discarded her dream wedding and settled on a small ceremony in her parents’ backyard, with a few folding tables and a barbecue reception. That’s when Bay Area wedding planner Erica Ota heard of Jen’s situation. Ota decided to call up her reserves and offer Jen the wedding that she had dreamed about since she was a young girl. In just 12 days, Ota recruited more than 30 vendors, who donated about $50,000 worth of products and services, including a jazz band and a parade, which was planned by Jen’s neighbors, according to NBC Bay Area. The reception would be garnished with hundreds of feet of lighting so it would look “like a fantasy land,” Ota described.

C-FORCE

And the tables would be decorated with Jen’s favorites: succulents — beautiful and tough drought-tolerant plants and flowers, just like the fighter she is. Ota explained: “It was my goal for them not to pay a dime. I thought to myself, ‘These people have already suffered enough. Why not be able to give them a gift, a wonderful gift that they and their families will never be able to forget?’” She added: “The thing is they’re such simple people — so positive and so hopeful — and they didn’t ask for anything from anybody. But they deserve this and more. ... They are truly wonderful people with good hearts and good souls.” Jen and Jeff were married July 27 in a fairy tale wedding at a local park, where they exchanged their vows under some beautiful redwood trees. According to the San Jose Mercury News, when they did, they shouted, “I do!” There are so many amazing and courageous life stories going on right now, I know. But I suppose this one stood out to me because I believe in fighting against all odds and for the things that matter most, such as love, marriage and family. I’m not a theologian. I can’t explain why bad things happen to good people or, for that matter, why good things happen to bad people. (See my good friend Randy Alcorn’s book If God Is Good: Faith in the Midst of Suffering and Evil for a surprisingly insightful treatise on that issue and much more. Go to www.epm.org.) But this much I know: As my 92-year-old mom wrote in her autobiography, Acts of Kindness: My Story, “bad things happen to good people, but good people can survive bad things with God’s help.” As difficult and even cruel as life can be, the truth is that we must strive with hope and optimism until we can no longer. And, when we’ve done all we can do, we must remember that our ultimate survival and healing are offered beyond this life with God’s help. Jesus said it this way: “I am the Resurrection and the Life. He [or she] who believes in Me will live even though he [or she] dies.” His words remind me of a poem titled What Cancer Can’t Do,

“It gives us a chance to talk when not a lot’s going on except sitting here with needles in our arms,” Jeremy said. “Sometimes we subconsciously race to see who finishes first. We keep track of how fast our blood’s flowing.” Jeremy, a father of two, donated his AB negative blood for the first time as a teen. “It was either him or Mom that had to sign off on my first donation when I was in high school,” Jeremy said. “From there, I’ve donated blood whenever I could.” Over the years, they’ve gotten to know the nurses who draw their blood. “We know them. They know us,” Jeremy said. “They remember us.” “Which arm, which chair,” Jerry added. “Which vein works best,” Jeremy said. They also have their preferences for the cookies they eat afterward to stabilize their blood sugar. “I’m partial to the peanut butter,” Jeremy said. “He’s partial to oatmeal raisin.” Father and son always schedule their next appointment after they finish. “He gets a card and puts it in his wallet,” Jeremy said. “I put it on my phone in the calendar.” Both men keep a low profile with their co-workers. By the time Jerry returns to work, he’s already removed the colored gauze from his forearm. “Most people don’t know that I do it,” Jeremy said. “I just come here, do my thing and go back to work.”

New bird flu spread by people

RESTAURANT MONITOR The Restaurant Monitor is a weekly listing of scores for restaurants inspected by the Brazos County Health Department. Inspections scores are on a 100-point scale. Generally, scores below 80 might cause the department to schedule a followup visit. A score below 70 results in the suspension of an establishment’s health permit. The following inspections were conducted July 25 through Aug. 1.

Thenewbirdflustrain,knownas H7N9,wasfirstreportedbyChinese authorities in March. As of the end of May, there were 132 cases and 37 deaths in China and Taiwan linked to the virus.

Except for a single case reportedlastmonth,theinfectionsappear to have stopped since Chinese authorities took measures to slow the virus, including shutting down live markets across the country. In the new study, Chinese researchers interviewed the family and close friends of a father and daughter both killed by H7N9 in eastern China to figure out how the virus might have spread between them. Both patients lived in the same household, were critically ill during the investigation and could not be interviewed. The father, 60, was in charge of buying food for the family and bought six live quails before falling sick. His daughter, 32, rarely left the residential district where they lived and didn’t have any known contact with birds, except for two black swans raised by the property owners.

The bird flu viruses isolated from the father and daughter were nearly genetically identical. There is no definitive test to prove when a virus has spread from human-to-human, but scientists consider matching viruses and eliminating other ways the virus might have spread to be convincing evidence. Scientists also tested 43contactsof thetwopatients;none had H7N9. “Inthiscluster,theviruswasable totransmitfromperson-to-person,” wrote Xian Qi of the Jiangsu Province Center for Disease Control and Prevention, who was the lead author of the study. The scientists concluded the transmission was “limited and non-sustainable.” The paper was published online Tuesday in the journal BMJ. “It is also notable that the transmission occurred between blood

relatives,” said Dr. Peter Horby, a bird flu expert at Oxford University Clinical Research Unit in Hanoi,Vietnam,inastatement.Horby, who was not involved in the latest study, noted there is some evidence thatgeneticfactorsmaymakesome people more susceptible to bird flu. In an accompanying commentaryintheBMJ,expertssaidsimilar patterns had been seen with other types of bird flu, including H5N1, another feared bird flu strain that first emerged in 1996 and has since killed millions of chickens. It has sickened more than 600 people and caused 377 deaths, mostly in Asia. “To observe some transmission of H7N9 from human-to-human... does not necessarily indicate the virus is on course” to spark a pandemic, wrote James Rudge of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who is based at Mahidol University in Thailand, and Richard Coker of the National University of Singapore.

U

se the same techniques and products to cover either a tattoo or birthmark. First, neutralize the color with cover up, and then top with a foundation. Look at the tattoo or birthmark.What is the primary color? Choose a cover up on the opposite side of the color wheel. For example, cover a primarily red birthmark with green. Green, mixed with red, produces brown—in this case, skin tone. Use a wet sponge to tap the product on. Wiping it usually does not allow it to adhere. Air dry for a minute or two. The green cover up may significantly mask a light birthmark or faded tattoo. Most, however, require a foundation over the cover up. Total Finish, the most opaque Merle Norman foundation, provides the greatest coverage. Again, tap the

product lightly over the birthmark or tattoo. Apply Simply Stylish several layers Nancy Pride instead of one heavy one. Increase the staying power by taping on loose powder between layers. Blend the edges with a damp sponge. If the tattoo or birthmark is light, use the cover up, then top with Long Lasting Foundation and loose powder. Long Lasting does not rub off, but will not adequately cover prominent tattoos or birthmarks. When the foundation has air dried, mist with finishing spray. It sets the foundation, helping to retain coverage. A few techniques and the right products give a natural look that keeps what you have to hide, hidden.

IN BRIEF

Malena sets the standard in a crowded backfield Stewart has surgery after Iowa crash KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — Tony Stewart underwent successful surgery Tuesday to repair the broken right tibia and fibula suffered in a sprint car race in Iowa. Stewart will need a second surgery and remains hospitalized. There was no timetable for his return. Stewart-Haas racing named Max Papis as the substitute driver in the No. 14 for Sunday’s NASCAR race at Watkins Glen. Papis has made 35 career Sprint Cup starts. Stewart was leading the 30lap feature in a 360 winged sprint car with five laps remaining when a lapped car spun in Turn 4 and collected Stewart and two others. The sprint car accident Monday night came a day after Stewart finished ninth in the NASCAR race at Pocono Raceway. He’s 11th in the Sprint Cup standings with five races to go until the Chase for the championship field is set.

exas A&M senior running back Ben Malena walked into Kevin Sumlin’s office on Monday with ideas on improving team leadership. Sumlin was all ears, because Malena has his respect and everyone else’s on the team.

Eagle photo by Stuart Villanueva

“He’s just an upbeat guy and everybody around the program knows how I feel about Ben,” said A&M’s second-year head coach. “All he does is he does things right.” A year ago in fall camp, everyone was raving about running back Christine Michael who was in the best shape of his career, coming off back-to-back season-ending injuries. There was talk of Michael rushing for 1,500 yards, even in Sumlin’s passoriented offense which has a history of finding room for a 1,000-yard rusher. Michael was good enough to be drafted in the second round by the Seattle Seahawks, but he wasn’t the team’s most productive running

back. Steady Malena had the most rushing yards among the running backs, gaining 808 on 138 carries with eight touchdowns. Malena had almost twice as many yards rushing as Michael (417 yards on 88 carries), and he also played on all special teams units and was the backfield’s best blocker. “We expect great leadership from Ben Malena, no matter what is going on,” said offensive coordinator Clarence McKinney. “He was a leader on last year’s team, he’s one of the biggest leaders we have on the team.” His coaches say he’s indispensable, but there’s a chance Malena could

AP photo Texans left tackle Duane Brown (right) takes on linebacker Willie Jefferson during training camp. Coach Gary Kubiak praised Brown as a major reason for Houston’s success.

HOUSTON — Houston coach Gary Kubiak didn’t need even a second to think before answering the question of what left tackle Duane Brown means to his team. “Everything,” Kubiak said. The team certainly has much bigger names including Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and J.J.

Watt. But to Kubiak, Brown’s solid play has been one of the key’s to his team’s success. “First off, he’s a tremendous worker,” Kubiak said. “Big respect as a player from what you see. Duane is respected around the league, but yet everyone watches him work as hard as he possibly can work. Very proud of Duane. Great player, but great man, too, and a big part. Very important.”

Brown was a first-round pick in 2008, drafted to shore up an offensive line that had been terrible through the first few years of Houston’s existence. He did just that, moving into the starting job immediately and starting all 16 games as a rookie. Brown started each game for Houston last year and has missed just four games in

Texas must adapt to make playoffs minus Cruz Rangers GM Daniels believes in team, expects club to still make postseason without slugger By STEPHEN HAWKINS Associated Press

With their big boomstick out of the lineup, the Texas Rangers are going to have to adapt to get in the playoffs again. “This is a club that has never shied away from a challenge before,” general manager Jon Daniels said. “It’s got a track record of success and we believe in this team, believe in the guys on the club and our pitching staff, our athleticism and the leadership there. We have every expectation that we are going to continue to win and make it to the playoffs, in spite of the situation.” Without Nelson Cruz, the suspended All-Star right fielder and 2011 AL championship series MVP who leads the Rangers with 27 home runs and 76 RBIs. “The game doesn’t stop because one guy is not there,” manager Ron Washington said. Texas will be without Cruz the rest of the regular season after he was suspended 50 games Monday by Major League Baseball following its investigation into the

While the absence of Cruz will be noticeable, Ian Kinsler and the rest of the Rangers insist that shouldn’t affect their playoff chances. “None. We’re missing a guy. Someone is going to have to step up and play right field,” Kinsler said. “That’s the way this team works. We’re not really worried about who’s not on the field. We’re worried about who’s on the field, and winning.” Instead of having another slugger to take over in right field, and more pressing in the middle of the batting order, the Rangers for now have five outfielders that will be in some sort of platoon system. David Murphy, primarily a left

fielder, was in right field for the first game without Cruz while Engel Beltre, recalled from Triple-A, was in left. Leonys Martin started in center, and later moved to right when Craig Gentry came into the game. Joey Butler, called up without ever playing in a major league game, is a right fielder to be used against left-handers. “Certainly it makes it more challenging on us offensively,” said Murphy, whose 12 homers and 34 RBIs top the group that has a combined 19 homers and 70 RBIs. Even with Cruz, who is eligible for free agency after the season, the Rangers were averaging about 4.3 runs per game and on pace for their fewest runs in a full 162-game season since 1992. The Rangers went into their game late Tuesday night at the

Angels two games behind AL West-leadingOakland.Texaswas six games back before winning seven of eight games, including 5-2 in the series opener Monday night at Los Angeles only hours after the discipline against Cruz and 12 other MLB players was announced. “Does it hurt us more than losing Matt Harrison for all year, Colby Lewis for almost all season? We’ve lost guys, we’ve gained guys,” catcher A.J. Pierzynski said. “Obviously Nellie’s numbers are what they are, and his presence is what it is.” Harrison, the team’s opening day starter before two operations on a herniated disk in his lower back, is pitching in rehab games and could be back by the end of the month. The Rangers also had anticipated having Lewis back,

but said Tuesday that their most successful postseason pitcher will have surgery to remove bone spurs from his right hip. He had been coming back from elbow surgery last year. Texas was unable to add a right-handed hitter before last week’s non-waiver trade deadline. But right-hander Matt Garza was acquired to join Yu Darvish and Derek Holland in a rotation that is backed by a solid bullpen led by Joe Nathan. “When you look at our pitching staff and some of the people that we have that are rehabbing, you feel like one of your strengths is certainly your pitching,” Rangers CEO and Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan said. “We have to feel good of where we are and what we have as a club.” If the Rangers make the playoffs for the fourth consecutive year, Cruz would eligible to play in the postseason. Daniels said the team is “openminded” to Cruz returning for the playoffs, with one of the primary considerations how the slugger would be accepted in the clubhouse.

“It was just a big mistake. He knows. He came out and told the team,” Holland said. “We won’t put a cloud of him or anything like that. We’ve got all the love for him. ... We’ll be waiting for him, and we know he’s going to be a key member of this team when it comes to the playoffs.” Cruz apologized to his teammates in the clubhouse Monday. The slugger didn’t speak publicly, but said in a statement that a gastrointestinal infection he hadfromNovember2011through January 2012 wasn’t properly diagnosed. He said he lost 40 pounds before getting proper treatment and just weeks before spring training “made an error in judgment that I deeply regret.” He provided no other specifics, including what he might have taken. “He’s one of my favorite teammates. Everyone knows it’s going to hurt, but there’s no way to replace him,” Kinsler said. “It’s the next guy in line. We’ve been doing this many times in many different circumstances. It’s not like we’re going to give up because he’s missing.”

Sox overcome tough start to beat Astros 15-10

Ellsbury homers twice; Workman earns win despite 6 earned runs By KRISTIE RIEKEN Associated Press

AP photo Astros second baseman Jose Altuve swings on his way to a strikeout against Red Sox starter Steven Wright in the first inning. Boston beat Houston 15-10.

HOUSTON — Jacoby Ellsbury homered twice and Jonny Gomes added a three-run shot and the Boston Red Sox rallied from a five-run deficit for a 15-10 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night. Catcher Ryan Lavarnway tied a major league record with four passed balls in the first inning as he struggled to handle pitches from knuckleballer Steven Wright, and the Astros took a 3-0 lead. Houston extended its lead to 5-0 before Ellsbury’s two-run shot in a three-run third closed the gap. The Astros led 7-3 before a fiverun fifth inning, highlighted by a two-run double by Lavarnway gave Boston a one-run lead. The Red Sox tacked on five more runs in the sixth, capped by the pinch-hit homer by Gomes. Robbie Grossman, Brett Wallace and Jake Elmore homered for the Astros, who have lost five of six.

David Ortiz had four hits, two RBIs and scored twice for the Red Sox and Shane Victorino added three hits and scored four times. Wright lasted just one inning in his first major league start. Brandon Workman (2-1) relieved him and got the win despite yielding nine hits and six runs in 4 2-3 innings. Houston’s Jordan Lyles (4-6) gave up nine hits for his third straight start and tied a career high with eight runs in 4 2-3 innings. Wright won his last two relief appearances and had thrown 9 2-3 scoreless innings entering Tuesday’s game. But he had trouble with command from the start and walked leadoff hitter Robbie Grossman. Grossman stole second before advancing to third on the first passed ball of the inning. He then plunked Brandon Barnes and he later advanced to second on another passed ball. A third passed ball allowed Grossman to score and Barnes to take second. The last passed ball of the inning sent Barnes home

before a single by Jason Castro. Wright walked Marc Krauss, prompting a visit to the mound by Lavarnway. The visit didn’t seem to help as Wright soon followed it with a wild pitch that left Castro at third. He scored on a groundout by Wallace before Wright finally escaped the inning by retiring Matt Dominguez. It was the third time in major league history that a team had four passed balls in one inning. It last happened on Aug. 22, 1987, when Texas Rangers catcher Geno Petralli did it against the White Sox in the seventh inning. Knuckleballer Charlie Hough was pitching in that game. Workman replaced Wright for the second inning and Jonathan Villar singled with one out before Grossman launched his homer into the seats in right field to extend the lead to 5-0. Ellsbury’s homer got Boston within 5-2 the third inning. Ortiz hit an RBI single later in the inning to make it 5-3. Wallace matched his home run total from last year when he con-

nected on his ninth of the season to push Houston’s lead to 6-3 in the third. L.J. Hoes hit his first career triple on a long fly ball which bounced up onto Tal’s Hill in center field in the fourth. Villar notched the first RBI of his career with a single that sent Hoes home and make it 7-3. Ellsbury walked to start the fifth before scoring on an error by Hoes after a double by Victorino. Dustin Pedroia’s RBI double cut Houston’s lead to 7-5 before a single by Ortiz. The Red Sox added a run on a one-out groundout by Mike Carp which sent Ortiz to second. Ortiz advanced to third on a wild pitch before Lyles walked Stephen Drew. Lavarnway’s double, which sailed out of reach of sprinting left fielder Grossman, scored two to give Boston an 8-7 lead and chase Lyles. Ellsbury sent his second homer to the second deck in right field off Jose Cisnero to leave Boston up 14-9 in the seventh.

MLB Roundup

BRAVES 2, NATIONALS 1: WASHINGTON — Hit by a pitch two innings after homering, Bryce Harper jawed and pointed at Atlanta’s Julio Teheran, and the dugouts and bullpens emptied, but the only haymakers thrown during the NL East-leading Braves’ 2-1 victory over the Nationals on Tuesday night came from the teams’ Twitter feeds. Evan Gattis’ two-run single in the fifth inning and the six innings thrown by Teheran (9-5) while allowing one run combined to produce Atlanta’s season-high 12th consecutive win, padding their NL East lead to 14½ games over Washington. Gattis’ big hit came off Gio Gonzalez (7-5), who pitched one night after Major League Baseball announced its Biogenesis investigation cleared the left-hander. • CARDINALS 5, DODGERS 1: ST. LOUIS — Carlos Beltran and Matt Adams homered in the eighth inning, and the St. Louis Cardinals snapped the Los Angeles Dodgers’ 15-game road winning streak with a 5-1 victor y on Tuesday night. Joe Kelly pitched into the sixth inning, outperforming Clayton Kershaw and helping St. Louis to its fourth victory in the last six games. Tony Cruz added an RBI single. Adrian Gonzalez hit a one-out RBI single off Kelly (3-3) in the sixth, but that was it for Los Angeles against the right-hander. He left with runners on first and second and the Cardinals nursing a 2-1 lead. Kershaw (10-7) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings for Los Angeles, which dropped to 15-3 since the All-Star break. The left-hander is 5-2 with a spar-

kling 1.62 ERA over his last eight starts. • PIRATES 4, MARLINS 3: PITTSBURGH — Josh Harrison homered leading off the bottom of the ninth, lifting the Pirates to a win over the Marlins. Harrison sent a fastball from Miami’s Mike Dunn (2-3) into the first row of seats in left-center field for his first career walk-off homer. Dunn had worked out of a bases loaded, no-out jam in the eighth. Bryan Morris (5-4) pitched a perfect top of the ninth for the victory. The Pirates have won three straight and are a season-high 24 games over .500 (68-44). Neil Walker had three hits for the Pirates. Andrew McCutchen had two hits, including a two-run double, for Pittsburgh. • PHILLIES 9, CUBS 8: PHILADELPHIA — Darin Ruf and Chase Utley sparked a three-run fifth inning to lift the Phillies to a 9-8 win over the Cubs. Utley, who had three hits, drove in the tying run on a triple to deep center field. He soon scored on Domonic Brown’s groundout to give the Phillies the lead. Ruf added one more on a solo home run, his fourth of the season. Philadelphia tagged Edwin Jackson (7-12) for seven runs and 10 hits in six innings. Trailing 9-5 in the ninth, the Cubs scored three runs off Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon before pinch-hitter Thomas Neal flew out with men on the corners to end it. Kyle Kendrick (10-8) allowed five runs and six hits in six innings. He also had an RBI single. • METS 3, ROCKIES 2: NEW

YORK — Eric Young made a diving catch to take a go-ahead hit away from Todd Helton in the sixth inning, then raced home with the tiebreaking run in the eighth, and the Mets beat the Rockies. The Rockies have lost 12 of 18 since the All-Star break and have scored five runs in their last three games. LaTroy Hawkins got his first save since May 6, 2012, for the Angels. Scott Atchison (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth inning. Eric Young led off the eighth with a single against Wilton Lopez (1-4). He was able to take second on Marlon Byrd’s deep fly, putting him in position to make it home on Juan Lagares’ infield single, a slow chopper to second base, that he just barely beat out. Young sped up as he rounded third and beat the throw home. • TIGERS 5, INDIANS 1: CLEVELAND — Justin Verlander dominated for eight innings and Don Kelly hit a three-run homer off Justin Masterson, leading the Detroit Tigers to their 10th straight win, 5-1 over the Cleveland Indians. Verlander (12-8) allowed one run and four hits as the Tigers beat the Indians for 10th time in 11 games and opened a fivegame lead over Cleveland in the AL Central. Kelly connected in the fifth inning off Masterson (13-8) and Miguel Cabrera picked up his 100th RBI as the Tigers improved to 11-3 against their nearest division rival. The Indians, who are 24-10 against the Central’s three other teams, have to hope they can win the next two over Detroit to split the series. To do that, they’ll have to beat

Doug Fister and Max Scherzer. • TWINS 7, ROYALS 0: KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Andrew Albers allowed four hits while pitching into the ninth inning in his major league debut, easily outdueling Royals ace James Shields and leading the Twins over Kansas City. The first big leaguer from Saskatchewan in more than 20 years, Albers at one point retired 15 straight. He was two outs shy of his third straight complete game dating back to Triple-A Rochester, and the first shutout in a big league debut since Detroit’s Andy Van Hekken did it in 2002. The Twins took most of the pressure off with a big night at the plate. Brian Dozier homered and drove in three runs, and Justin Morneau and Chris Colabello also went deep for the Twins. • WHITE SOX 3, YANKEES 2: CHICAGO — Chris Sale allowed one run while outpitching Hiroki Kuroda in to the eighth inning, and the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 3-2 on Tuesday night. Alex Rodriguez singled, walked, was hit by a pitch and lined out to center field after going 1 for 4 in his season debut Monday. The Yankees lost for the 13th time in 19 games after scoring a run in the ninth against closer Addison Reed. A-Rod was on deck when Alfonso Soriano struck out to end it with a runner on first. Reed gave up a single to a pinch-hitter Ichiro Suzuki, who took second on defensive indifference and came around on Brett Gardner’s two-out single. But Reed finished for his 27th save in 32 chances. — Wire reports

Woods poised to end his longest major drought By DOUG FERGUSON Associated Press

PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Tiger Woods is leaving nothing to chanceinhislastchancethisyear to win a major. Freshoffaseven-shotvictoryat aWorldGolf Championship—his fifth win of the season — Woods showedupatOakHilllateMonday afternoon and spent most of his time chipping and putting, trying tolearnthenuancesof thegreens. Remember, his failure to adjust to the greens is what derailed him at the British Open two weeks ago. He also spent time with Steve Stricker talking about putting, which must have been a daunting sightfortheotherplayers.Thelast time Stricker gave him some putting tips was in early March, and Woods went on to win three of his next four tournaments. The stakes are higher than usual for him at the PGA Championship. This isn’t the first time Woods hasgoneintofinalmajortryingto make sure his season doesn’t end without one. One difference from previous years is that Woods now is piling up wins just about everywhere except the majors. The Bridgestone Invitational was his fifth win of the year. Only twice in the last 30 years has a playerhadatleastthatmanyPGA Tour wins in a season without a major—Woodsin2009andWoods in 2003.

AP photo Tiger Woods speaks at a press conference for the PGA Championship on Tuesday. It is the last major of the season. Woods has not won a major in five years. For someone who has been stuck on 14 majors the last five years, Woods didn’t sound like he was in panic mode. “I think winning one major championship automatically means you had a great year,” he said Tuesday after playing nine holes and spending even more time in the practice area, finetuning a game that already is in great shape. “Even if you miss the cut in every tournament you play, you win one (major), you’re part of history. “This year, I think it’s been a great year so far for me, winning fivetimes,”hesaid.“Andyoulook at the quality of tournaments I’ve won—ThePlayersandtwoWorld

Golf Championships in there — that’s pretty good.” It used to be major or bust for Woods, but when asked if he had adjustedhisstandardsduringthis five-year drought, Woods offered a simple, “No.” Still a great year without a major? “Yeah,” Woods said, offering nothing more than a smile. Even so, he conceded that the 15th major has been tougher to get than he would have imagined.

MALENA: Running back says intangibles crucial in SEC

Continued from C1

Aggie Football Practice Notebook

get less carries this season because running back might be the team’s deepest position. Sophomore Trey Williams rushed for 376 yards last season on 65 carries and sophomore transfers Brandon Williams and Tra Carson were talented enough to get carries as freshmen — Williams getting 219 yards on 46 carries at Oklahoma and Carson 254 yards on 45 carries at Oregon. “These guys are expected to come in and compete with each other, making each other better,” McKinney said. They have an excellent leader when it comes to competitiveness in the 5-foot-9, 195-pound Malena. “As a coach for a guy to come in and sit down in front of you at your desk and say, ‘Coach, can I talk to you for a second? I want to talk to you about my role not as a player, but my role as leader on this team,’” Sumlin said. “That shows you the type of maturity that the young man has and shows you the level that he cares.” Malena said intangibles are crucial in a league as talented as the Southeastern Conference. “In order for teams to take the step to get to championship level, you need to have player leadership, also,” Malena said.

Clarifying the suspensions of Everett and Raven: Suspended defensive players Deshazor Everett and Floyd Raven Sr.,were allowed to return to football activities about a week ago,head coach Kevin Sumlin said Tuesday after the team’s second practice. Junior cornerback Everett and senior safety Raven, both expected to be starters, had been suspended from most team activities on July 1 after having assault charges brought against them for an April 7 incident at an apartment complex. They had been suspended from all football activities except for “I just went up there and discussed things with him, and asked him for advice for different things that I can do to further help this team get to a championship level.” Malena played a big part in a quiet way in helping A&M go 11-2 in its maiden SEC season. Many players said the 30-27 victory over Ole Miss was a huge turning point. Johnny Manziel rallied A&M from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit by throwing a 32-yard pass to Mike Evans on third-and-19 from A&M’s 3, followed two plays later by Manziel’s 29-yard touchdown run to pull the Aggies within 27-23. Manziel then capped A&M’s next possession

academics and medical treatment. Sumlin said the second phase of the players’ suspensions hasn’t been decided. • Injuries: Sophomore running back Brandon Williams, who sat out last season after transferring from Oklahoma, was in a protective boot, but he should be ready for the season opener, Sumlin said. ... Returning sophomore place-kicker Taylor Bertolet didn’t practice,but Sumlin cited his policy of not discussing injuries. Offensive line coach B.J. Anderson also refused to talk about the injury with a go-ahead 20-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Swope. Overlooked in a game of many big plays was the play of Malena who rushed for a career-high 142 yards on 18 carries. Malena had a 59-yard touchdown run to give A&M a 7-0 lead, and added a 36-yard run before Manziel’s 29-yard touchdown run. “He is what you want to coach and why you get into coaching,” said former offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury the following week. “Watching him practice, and the things he does on special teams, he would take every rep he could and that’s what you want out there. He has great energy on

by a mile. He is the favorite at every major, even though he’s gone 17 majors without winning. He is the center of attention, and that only ramps up when he arrives fresh off a seven-shot win. “IthinkTigerisafactornomatter what — even coming in not with that kind of form,” Masters champion Adam Scott said. “He’s been up there in majors recently andjusthasnotfinisheditoff.But, obviously,heputitalltogetherlast week at a venue he’s extremely comfortable with, so I don’t know that Tiger’s confidence is ever really down. It’s hard to imagine when you’ve won 80 times or something. He’s obviously going to be feeling good about where his game is at. “But this week is a new challenge, as it is for everyone,” Scott said. “And we all start from the same point on Thursday.” It’s not getting any easier at the majors. For the first time in 25 years, the major champions were threeplayerswhowereamongthe top 10 in the world — Scott at the Masters, Justin Rose at the U.S. Open and Phil Mickelson at the British Open. “I think that having Tiger win last week is great because I can’t rememberthelasttimesomebody won the week before a major and thenwentonandwon,”Mickelson said, waiting for the room to catch uptohiswisecrack.Thatwouldbe Mickelson, who won the Scottish Open the week before his British

the sidelines. He’s a team guy and sat around and waited for his time to play. He’s definitely the type of player you want on your team.” Malena got his first start against Texas in the 2011 regular season finale out of necessity when injuries sidelined current Kansas City Chiefs’ running back Cyrus Gray who had been getting more carries after Michael suffered a knee injury against Oklahoma. Malena responded with 83 yards rushing against Texas on 25 carries. He followed that up with 23 carries for 87 yards and two touchdowns in the 3322 victory over Northwestern in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.

Open win. Woods had been the last player to do that — an eight-shot win at the Bridgestone Invitational in 2007, followed by the PGA Championship at Southern Hills. This will be the 20th time that Woods goes into a major having won in his previous tournament. And while he has won four of those majors — the U.S. Open in 2000, Masters in 2001 and PGA Championship in 2006 and 2007 — only Mickelson (five) and Ernie Els (four) from his generation have won that many majors in a career. Of greater concern is that Woodsis0-for-7datingtothatPGA title at Southern Hills. “Having him back, having him playwell,havinghimwinlikehe’s wonthisyearisgreatforthegame of golf,” Mickelson said. “And the work that he’s been doing with Sean Foley has been noticeable and been paying off and he’s not having the shots that he’s had for afewyears.He’splayingsolidand he played great last week. “I think it’s also great for the game to see guys the like Adam Scott and Justin Rose to come out and win major championships early on — guys that have incredible games and now have won golf’s biggest events,” he added. “That just makes it exciting because we have a number of players that can really create a lot of interest in this final major championship.”

Bombers wallop Strykers: THE WOODLANDS — The Bombers lived up to their name, beating The Woodlands Strykers 14-6 on Tuesday. After going scoreless for the first three innings, the Bombers posted a six-run fourth and scored six again in the eighth. Brett Kauten, who led off the fourth with a home run, finished 4-for-5 with two runs and four RBIs. Cody Lovejoy and Blake Kopetsky also homered. A&M commit G.R. Hinsley finished 3-for-6 with two runs and two RBIs. As a team, the Bombers recorded 18 hits. Jason Gareri earned the win to improve to 3-2. He pitched two-andtwo-thirds innings, allowing one run on three hits. •

WARE: Cowboys DE more than halfway to Smith’s all-time sacks record of 200

Continued from C1

decades ago. “His passion for pass rushing is really something,” Marinelli said. “Guy lives it every day. You just want guys to live this stuff. To live it and be able to wake up in the morning and you’re getting up and, ‘Man, I get to go rush today.’” Ware was waking up sore every day by the end of last season. He started every game for the seventh time in his eight pro seasons, but he wasn’t himself because of a shoulder injury as

the Cowboys dropped their final two games and missed the playoffs for the third straight year. The four-time All-Pro still led Dallas with 11.5 sacks, but it was a drop of eight from the previous season. He had a career-high 20 in 2008. “I feel like it wasn’t enough because I didn’t have an opportunity to get to the end,” Ware said. “I wasn’t effective enough. This year I feel like a solid, solid player, ready to go out there and play and ready to get it.” Ware had offseason shoulder surgery, and he gets a year older

during training camp because his birthday is in late July. He pointed out on his own last week that he was turning 31, which maybe was his way of saying he has quite a few years left. “Just turn the practice tape on and let that carry over into the game and proving a point to yourself day in and day out that you still can do it,” Ware said. “The age might be going up, but the experience and the maturity, I’m still young.” Ware is more than halfway to Bruce Smith’s sacks record of 200 in less than half the 19 sea-

sons that Smith played. His season average is three sacks better than Smith. He knows what the number is, and he shares a piece of paper with a goal on it every day “just to give me something to shoot for.” But it’s not necessarily Smith’s number. “I never usually think about a record, because a record has a ceiling to it,” Ware said. “Why not shoot to something a little higher than that and then you might end up where you need to be?” Ware has long been one of the most marketable Cowboys.

During the offseason he joined Cowboys owner Jerry Jones at a news conference announcing a new partnership with an insurance company. He essentially adopted a Dallas-area high school team for the playoffs last year, spending a day with Lancaster players before the team made a run to a state championship game. The closer he gets to Smith’s record, the more his personable demeanor will get play nationally. His only rival for goodwill in the community is Jason Witten. Coach Jason Garrett would ar-

gue there’s a reason Ware and Witten are the next two players in the Hall of Fame conversation after last weekend’s induction of offensive lineman Larry Allen. “He’s quick, he’s fast, he’s explosive, he’s strong, he’s long,” Garrett said of Ware. “I can keep going and going and going but what makes DeMarcus Ware great is the same thing that makes Witten great. The kind of people they are. That’s where the conversation starts for me.” For Ware, the conversation about pass rushing starts just about anywhere.

Brown, who has blossomed while protecting Matt Schaub’s blind side, believes training camp will be important to the line developing an identity. “Having a starting five and starting to gel and blend that chemistry and continuity means everything,” Brown said. “The offensive line is all about being in sync and in rhythm, so having five guys solidified there means a lot.” He anchors a line that has veteran Chris Myers at center, but plenty of questions on the right side. Third-year player

Derek Newton and rookie Brennan Williams are competing to start at right tackle, and Brandon Brooks, who is in his second year, is a front-runner for the right guard spot. Brown doesn’t believe the right side of the line will be the weak spot on the team that many expect it to be. “I don’t think so, those guys are working hard over there,” Brown said. “We’ve got a solid starter in the right guard position; we still got two guys battling at the right tackle position right now. And I think that’ll be solidified here in a couple of weeks. I don’t think it’ll be a problem at all for us.” The Texans have had great

success in their run game since employing a zone blocking scheme under Kubiak. Arian Foster has run for more than 1,200 yards in each of the last three seasons behind that blocking. Foster has been on the physically unable to perform list since the beginning of camp with a calf strain and a sore back. Brown hopes Foster can return soon so the group can get on the same page with him. “You like to have your ones in to get that chemistry going,” he said. “Running backs have to get a feel for the linemen, get on the same page and get in sync. We’ve all played together long enough to get a good feel

for each other. The main thing is getting healthy. That means more than anything to have a healthy back, back there.” Kubiak has marveled at the development of Brown from when he was drafted to last year’s Pro Bowl season. The coach believes he was helped by having to face off against former Colts lineman Dwight Freeney twice a year early in his career. “He’s taken his play to the next level,” Kubiak said. “When your peers start to recognize you and put you in that game in February that they play in Hawaii, then they’re telling you that you’ve become a big-time player. Duane’s taking care of his business.”
