Sled dogs seeking homes By Brian Alexander Mountaineer Staff Writer You can’t go anywhere in the Vail Valley without seeing man’s best friend putting a smile on someone’s face. Now they need our help putting a smile on their slobbery cute faces – the Eagle County Animal Services recently received a request from a local sled dog group asking for their help. Unfortunately for the sled group, one of the owners has passed away and the group can no longer manage the number of dogs that they currently have.

Eagle County Animal Services has 40 dogs up for adoption

They are trying to re-home close to 40 Alaskan Husky dogs, and are putting out an urgent plea to the public to help this group of dogs find homes. The male and female dogs range in age, but in the business of dog sled the group is probably trying to get rid of the older dogs according to the Eagle Coun-

Local starts online training program Former BMHS coach hopes to help runners of all levels

The death toll from the monster tornado last week in Missouri has risen by three to at least 142, Joplin City Manager Mark Rohr said during a news conference yesterday. That makes this the deadliest year for tornadoes since 1950, based on an assessment of figures from the National Weather Service. The tornado death toll for 2011 is now 520. Until now, the highest recorded death toll in a single year was 519 in 1953. There were deadlier storms before 1950, but those counts were based on estimates and not on precise figures.

Egypt lifted a 4-year-old blockade of the Gaza Strip yesterday, greatly easing travel restrictions on the 1.5 million residents of the Palestinian territory in a move that bolstered the Hamas government while dealing a setback to Israel’s attempts to isolate the militant group. The sense of relief was palpable as buses piled high with luggage crossed the Rafah border terminal and hundreds of people traveled abroad for overdue medical appointments, business dealings and family affairs. In Israel, fears were heightened that militants and weapons will soon pour into the territory.

mean they can’t be inside dogs according to Animal Services. “They can be good inside dogs, but they have to be worked with,” said Animal Services Officer Nathan Lehnert. “It’s not like they aren’t socialized, they really work with people, but they are meant to be outdoor animals so they’ll probably need some training when they get put in a home.” The dogs weigh about fifty pounds, kept lean by a life of hard work. If they go into a home they’ll probably gain [See DOGS, page 9]

By John O’Neill Mountaineer Contributor Rob Parish, former cross country and track coach for Battle Mountain High School is opening himself up to coach any endurance-based athlete through his new online training website, www. parishpersonaltraining. com. The idea for the online training site hit parish after he took a leave from the Battle Mountain running scene to teach abroad in Italy for two years with his wife, Kelli. “Being a coach and having people know I was coach, I had a lot of people coming to me to help them train and get in shape,” Parish said. “I had people that wanted to just get in shape, people wanting to break personal

records and I had people trying to get to the Olympic Trials.” Parish said that he found himself answering the same questions over and over again and developing training plans for people of different abilities. Because he was traveling through Europe, he resorted to online training logs. “In 2009 I had about five people training as a sort of test run with online training logs and coaching over the phone,” Parish said. “Then when people started seeing results, I decided to go for it with the website.” Since he’s taken his program online, the number of people who have approached Parish for training advice has grown [See TRAIN, page 10]

Cycling challenge calls on fans Design contest being held for promo poster design By Phil Lindeman Mountaineer Staff Writer When the USA Pro Cycling Challenge rolls through Avon and Vail in late August, a handful of valley locals will find their artwork sharing center stage with 127 of the world’s premier cyclists, thanks to a recently announced promotional poster contest. The contest began early last week and runs until June 19. Artists of every age, ability, and geographic location are invited to submit artwork through the cycle challenge’s Facebook page. Contest judges, pulled from a mix of local organizing committees and race organizers, will sift through hundreds of entries to whittle down roughly 10 posters for each host city, as well as an overarching national poster. Winners will be publicly announced on July 19. Although contest organizers are adamant the winning designs need to show artistic merit – “this is a skill-based contest and chance plays no part in the determination of winners,� a press release reads – the open format gives both amateur and professional artists an equal chance. A free entry helps as well. “We feel like it’s a great opportunity for artists, but it’s also a great time for your average cycling fan,� said Allison McGee Johnson, who runs communications for the cycle challenge. With several stages set

to air on national TV, she notes millions will likely see the winning posters. The only design stipulation is that entries somehow mix elements of cycling with local flare. Jamie Walker, the community relations officer for Avon, said she is excited to see what a collection of enthusiastic cyclists can dream up. “Certainly we want something that speak to the community and the history of cycling in the valley,� Walker said. Since the Vail and Avon portions run back-to-back on August 25 and 26, roughly 20 representatives from both towns formed a joint marketing/PR committee to promote the challenge. Walker is co-chair of that

committee, which will also judge the posters. “The fact that anyone can become involved is a great facet,� Walker said. “It’s an opportunity for an enormous audience to see individual work.� When the committee meets in early June, members will decide judging criteria, as well as how many posters to accept. Walker said she is “almost certain� the committee will opt for a joint Vail/Avon poster rather than two separate designs. Open contests are an oft-used tool of athletic events – think public submissions for Olympic mascots -- particularly because of the aforementioned regional flavor. Johnson points out marketing teams barely hold a candle to bona fide local knowledge. “Sure, we could say ‘this is the coolest thing about Vail,’ but we’d rather have someone who lives in Vail speak for the town and give insider perspective,� Johnson said, noting that while the contest is open to anyone in the U.S., local submissions will be given top priority. For Walker and other town officials, the contest gives locals yet another reason to be energized for the first Colorado cycling event since the Coors International Bicycle Classic went defunct in 1988. “It’s an honor for the Vail Valley to have the challenge and bring a major cycling event back to our community,� Walker said.�

$ Seat belt crackdown on again Local police following ‘no warning’ policy Officers with local police departments are once again on the prowl for those who drive without wearing their seat belts. Police will participate in the program until June 5. That means anyone pulled over and found to not be wearing a seat belt during that time will be given a ticket, no exceptions. Officers cannot legally pull drivers over for failure to wear a seat belt. But they will write tickets to those drivers they pull over for other reasons who are not wearing their seat belts. Drivers are also responsible for making sure their passengers are wearing their seat belts, and may be ticketed if they are not. According to data provided by the Avon Police Department, more than

250 people died on Colorado’s rural roads in 2009, and more than half of those people were not wearing a seat belt. About 85 percent of traffic fatalities occur within five miles of home, the department reports. This is the second crackdown of its kind this year. Agencies across western Colorado cooperated with the Colorado Department of Transportation in early April for a similar campaign. In just one week of that crackdown, the Avon Police Department alone made 138 traffic stops and gave out 75 citations, 61 of which were for seat belts. The minimum fine for a seat belt violation is $65. The minimum fine for failure to us a child’s car seat is $82.

By Erinn Chavez Mountaineer Contributor Hibachi Restaurants have been popping up all over the United States for a few decades, but that experience has just recently come to Vail. Rick and Joyce Woo, owners of May Palace and Sushi Oka are excited. They have moved Sushi Oka from the Cascade into the heart of Vail Village and have spent time and money creating a concept that will entertain locals and tourists alike. Sushi Oka Hibachi restaurant will still serve the same great sushi on their beautiful sushi bar – made specifically for the space and shipped in from China – but they have added six hibachi tables. There are four traditional sized hibachi tables that seat eight comfortably and there are two large hibachi tables to seat up to ten people. Great for parties and large groups, you are sure to be entertained by the general excitement in the restaurant along with the great show put on by the teppanyaki chefs. Woo did a great job setting up the restaurant with 130 seats that include small quite tables set back from the action to make Sushi Oka a great place for the perfect date night. The drink The large inviting bar as you walk in is also a piece of artwork from China. Made with the same Birchwood as the sushi bar, it is dark,

The food Everyone is served soup and salad while the entertainment continues. Each person is also given a range of dipping sauces for their order. The steak is cooked to order and seasoned with any number of seasonings each chef is equipped with at the table. The salmon filet is a generous cut that is cooked to perfection and served with a sweet chilly sauce and creamy “yummy yummy” sauce. This “Japanese steakhouse” feel along with the sushi bar and a traditional Japanese kitchen in the back give patrons many choices. The menu is a little overwhelming and your biggest problem is deciding what to eat. The menu includes lamb chops with red wine sauce as well as soft shell crab in creamy pumpkin sauce. Just looking through the menu it is obvious there are several reasons to come back and sample everything. The current lunch menu includes 10 Bento boxes to choose from and a hibachi lunch, great for a work lunch. Soon they will offer a standard menu that they call “From the [See HIBACHI, page 9]

Memories of the ‘Great Race’: 1977 DAILY SPECIAL Daredevil Steve Sheridan loses his spleen in crash By Will Miller Special to the Mountaineer After the 1975 disaster, I conveniently took a job in Edmonton, Alberta. That should give you an idea just how eager I was to escape the wrath of entities like the TOV, VA, VRA, VPD, VVMC and sundry puked-on bus drivers. It was a BFD. No one liked me except my dog, Shadow. When I came to my senses and returned to Vail during the Winter of 1977, Ted Martin, then Director of Ski Club Vail, grabbed me and said “Lets get the Great Race going again!” “Are you nuts?” I replied. Back then he was (nuts) kind of like the rest of us, so I went along, figuring nothing would happen. Wrong again. He got the town and VA to go along, so long as the event was held as a fundraiser for SCV and we had it in Lionshead away from the guests. He called me and told me to meet him by the Gondola steps in the morning, but wouldn’t tell me why. Kind of like Lucy to Ethel. I met him and asked what we were doing. “We just have to get permission from Bill (Sarge) Brown.” Alarm bells started ringing inside my skull. My first job in Vail was on the Trail Crew in 1968 working for Sarge raking rocks on Prima Face. I switched to waiting tables when

the season began, despite a possible strike by the Ski Patrol. The Trail Crew was the reserves. I was whale poop, scum, a deserter. I developed an instant case of colitis as we approached Sarge’s office. When we entered, Bill was at his desk, cigar clenched in his teeth and Paul Testwuide was sitting by the door with a gleeful smirk on his face. Bill looked up and grunted, “Will Miller and the Great Race, I hate the words.” Paul was suppressing a full-on guffaw. Ted and I did a “Wayne’s World” not-worthy grovel and somehow were granted a condition-

al “Yes”, if we got injury waivers and event insurance. We set the Inner Tube downhill on Bwana and kept hearing about some fanatic who was practicing every night after the lifts were closed. The morning came and we had a very cool stage and PA system. We had “Star Wars” and “Rocky” playing to wake the Lionsheadians and Ted and I were in purple tuxes with ruffles. The crowd consumed massive amounts of consumables with early morning glee. The big moment arrived and the Starter radioed down, “How far up [See RACE, page 9]

The Vail Valley Foundation announced yesterday the 2011 recipients of two annual scholarships funded by foundation donors. The prestigious four-year award went to Amelia Ortiz, a fleet footed Vail Mountain School senior, thanks to her numerous accomplishments in the classroom and beyond. The scholarship takes effect this fall when Ortiz attends Williams College in Williamstown, Mass., where she plans to major in Spanish or foreign studies. The second scholarship goes to Vail’s Nathan Ball, a graduate of Boston College, the New England Conservatory of Music and the Brevard Music Institute, who is the second recipient of the two-year June S. Kang Love of the Arts Scholarship. The funds will help him pursue his doctorate at the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University. Scholarship recipients are chosen based on GPA, standardized test results, an application essay, interview and financial need. The criteria for the June S. Kang Scholarship, created in the memory of the

long-time Arrowhead resident who passed away during the winter of 2009, also weighs proven artistic ability. An exceptional student in the classroom, Ortiz was a singularly powerful Nordic skiing competitor for the VMS Gore Rangers. Although VMS does not offer track or field, her stamina on the snow transferred easily to racing for the Battle Mountain Huskies, where she was widely recognized as a standout cross country athlete. “We are very pleased to be able to award this scholarship to Amelia,” said Jean McSpadden, director of education for the Vail Valley Foundation. “She truly stood out and we feel a great sense of satisfaction in knowing that through the generosity of our donors, the foundation is able to help Amelia to continue to pursue her dreams.” Along with her athletic feats, Ortiz was a member of the VMS Upper School Choir and volunteered for numerous organizations, including Students Shoulder to Shoulder, the Thrifty Shoppe, the Snowboard

Outreach Society and the Eagle Valley Humane Society. During the interview process, she offered that one of the most influential experiences of her life was travelling to Bolivia in 2010 to volunteer with the Students Shoulder to Shoulder group. Ball has already enjoyed an accomplished musical career, having been commissioned by both the Boston College Bands program and the Wenham Street Brass Trio. As an undergraduate, he was awarded the New England Conservatory of Music Merit Scholarship and the Boston College Bands Program Scholarship, while also being nominated for the Order of the Cross and Crown Honor Society at Boston College. “Nathan’s academic and musical accomplishments are truly impressive,” McSpadden said. “It is exciting to think of someone from our valley making such a name for himself through education and we are proud to be able to help with advancing his very promising career in music.”

Alaskan Huskies, or any type of animal similar to that, is going to be a high energy animal, making them a perfect fit for the active outdoor lifestyle that so many in the valley love. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though the dog might be good socially, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to want to be totally active,â&#x20AC;? Lehnert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone who has come through the site has set a personal record in race times or other things like loosing weight,â&#x20AC;? Parish said. The secret: proper method of training. When you are trying to accomplish a goal, Parish said, especially in running, not everything works the same for everyone. Basically, just going on runs is only half the battle when many believe that is all it takes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big thing about PPT (Parish personal training) is that it is custom training,â&#x20AC;? Parish said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The training caters to the specific athlete after a short consultation that analyzes what it is you want to do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; get in shape, set a personal record, loose some weight, qualify for the Olympic Trials â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the factors that also influence training like history with injury, facilities available, hours you can work out and if there is a preference for alternative training like swimming and biking.â&#x20AC;? From the consultation, Parish said he could build a plan around any schedule and fitting to any ability. The athletes Parish has worked with are quick to say that not only is

out of his way to help, but his training really works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It think it is a great concept,â&#x20AC;? said Kevin Clary who just ran a personal best of 2 hours 25 minutes at the Sacramento International Marathon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only three minutes off the Olympic Trials marathon standard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having Rob to review my efforts, offer suggestions and bounce ideas off of has really helped.â&#x20AC;? Clary also said that what makes the site so successful is Parish himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rob has the ability to work with any level and find out exactly what it is that they need to succeed,â&#x20AC;? Clary said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His appeal to such a broad range is rare.â&#x20AC;? Even though he gets praise from his athletes, Parishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credentials can speak for themselves. Parishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running career was not always one of a coach. He enjoyed considerable success in high school in Nevada and was recruited to run for Montana State University, one of the top running programs in the country. After leaving Montana State, Parish found work as a teacher and

country and track coaching position at Battle Mountain High School. Although the programs at BMHS are storied as of recent years, they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always that way. When Parish took the reins the teams were consistently finishing last in the worst region in Colorado. But after two years of training under Parish, the BMHS running teams found them competing for the top spots in the region. A year later the girls team ascended to the top of the state podium in cross country. The next year, and the year after that, the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team followed suit becoming back-toback state champions. After leaving Battle Mountain to go to Italy, Parish found continual success in coaching his colleagues to reach their fitness goals. Parish is back from Italy but with the website he is able to maintain training regimens for athletes in Europe and across the United States. To check out more on Parishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training philosophies visit www. parishpersonaltraining.com. In Parishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a tool for anybody.â&#x20AC;?

Sinus Doctors

END SINUS SUFFERING - WITHOUT SURGERY! Colorado Sinus Institute introduces in-office sinus treatment, ‘balloon sinuplasty’. 20-MINUTE PROCEDURE. NO DOWNTIME. The symptoms of sinus infections, nasal problems and sinus allergies such as sneezing, congestion, runny nose, coughing and itchy throat can greatly affect your quality of life. Acute sinus infections include sinus headaches, facial pain, constant sinus pressure and fever. In some cases nasal and sinus troubles are the result of allergies, viruses, deviated septum, nasal blockage or nasal polyps. Both chronic and acute sinus infections require medical care. Get the treatment you need at the Colorado Sinus Institute (CSI), a division of Associates of Otolaryngology. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned above, don’t just assume they will go away on their own or are nothing to worry about. Come to Colorado Sinus Institute (CSI) for the specialized care you need. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained specialists can accurately diagnose and effectively treat your condition. Start with an accurate diagnosis CSI’s Dr. Jeff Cutler remarks: “At first, it may be difficult to tell the difference between sinus problems, allergies and a common cold, because they each share many of the same immediate symptoms. However, if you experience sinus problems for more than 12 weeks, you most likely have chronic sinusitis. This condition can also occur if you suffer from allergic rhinitis, or hay fever. We are able to conduct specialized in-office tests to determine the cause of your problem. Once an accurate diagnosis is made, your treatment will be tailored to your individual condition. Our treatment options for sinus-related conditions and sinus allergies include antibiotics, nasal sprays, decongestants, antihistamines and allergy shots.” For chronic or recurring sinusitis, treatment options may include nasal surgery. Surgery is typically consid-

ered for those patients who do not experience sufficient relief from medication or other treatments such as immunotherapy (allergy shots). “The current standard in the treatment of chronic or recurrent sinusitis is a type of surgery called functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS),” Dr. Cutler continues. “This procedure removes obstructions associated with sinusitis in order to restore normal clearance of the sinuses. The benefit of FESS is its ability to allow for a targeted approach to the affected sinuses, thereby reducing tissue disruption and minimizing post-operative complications.” Another new treatment for chronic sinusitis is what¹s called “balloon sinuplasty” or “balloon sinus dilation.” This method, which is similar to balloon angioplasty used to “unclog” arteries of the heart, utilizes balloons in an attempt to expand the openings of the sinuses. This FDA approved technique has been found to be minimally invasive with a quicker recovery time than traditional sinus surgery. Balloon sinuplasty uses endoscopes (microscopic scopes placed into the nose) and a catheter-based system to access the sinuses. CSI’s Dr. Ed Hepworth and Dr. Cutler perform balloon sinuplasty in the office while patients are under local anesthesia. Under the guidance of microscopic endoscopes placed through the nose, a catheter-based system accesses the openings of the sinuses. Once the sinus openings are identified, tiny balloons are gradually inflated to open the blocked sinuses. This opening allows for normal function and drainage of the sinuses. The procedure causes minimal pain and a short recovery. You may return to work or school the same day. As you recover, Dr. Cutler recommends keeping your nose moist with nasal salt-water spray as well as using corticosteroid nasal sprays to keep the inflammation down.

Advantages of balloon sinuplasty over traditional endoscopic sinus surgery. Although all surgical options have risk, clinical research has indicated the balloon sinuplasty method to be safe in relieving symptoms of sinusitis. Traditional surgical approaches for sinusitis requiremore extensive bone removal. Balloon sinuplasty uses small, soft, flexible devices that are less traumatic to nasal and sinus tissue. With less bone and tissue removal involved, there is less bleeding associated with the procedure. Recovery time varies with each patient; however, baloon sinuplasty patients tend to recover quicker than traditional approaches. Dr. Cutler has helped pioneer some of the techniques in office balloon dilation and has been active in instructing physicians from all parts of the country in these innovative procedures. For more information on in-office solutions to your sinus problems, contact Colorado¹s sinus and ENT experts Dr. Hepworth, Dr. Cutler and their colleagues at Colorado Sinus Institute & Associates of Otolaryngology today. Visit them at 850 E. Harvard Ave., Suite 505, Denver, 80210 (303) 744-1961 or at their Lone Tree location at 9218 Kimmer Drive, Suite 200, Lone Tree, 80124 (303) 799-6161.

THE UPDATE Yemen president, tribal chief agree to end clashes

Yemen’s embattled president and the country’s most powerful tribal leader agreed yesterday to end five days of gun battles that killed 124 people and pushed the country’s political crisis closer to civil war. The fighting between forces loyal to both men made the past week the deadliest since mass street protests for an end to President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s 33-year rule broke out three months ago. Although it could prevent bloodshed, the agreement will do little to solve the wider crisis, with Saleh rejecting efforts to negotiate his exit. The week’s battles began when Saleh’s security forces attacked the home of Sheik Sadeq al-Ahmar, head of the powerful Hasid tribal confederation and an uneasy ally who abandoned the president and joined his opponents.

Casey Anthony’s mother, ex-boyfriend testify

Cindy Anthony testified yesterday at her daughter’s murder trial that she and Caylee went swimming on June 15, 2008 — the last day she saw her granddaughter. She said she removed a ladder used to help Caylee get into the pool — something she did every time the pool wasn’t being used. Casey Anthony, who is charged with first-degree murder in the toddler’s summer 2008 death, wiped away tears with a tissue during her mother’s testimony. Prosecutors contend Casey Anthony suffocated the girl with duct tape. If convicted, she could be sentenced to death. Casey Anthony’s former boyfriend, Anthony Lazzaro, also testified yesterday about the hours after the Anthonys reported Caylee’s disappearance to authorities. He described a text message exchange in which he was trying to get Casey Anthony to reveal where the toddler was. The defense has argued that Casey’s

Obama exhorts US, allies to bolster Arab spring

Holding out Poland’s transformation to democracy as a model for the world, President Barack Obama yesterday exhorted Western allies and the American public alike to extend their support, energy and vision to those now reaching for democracy in the Middle East and North Africa. Obama wound up his six-day trip to Europe with a message aimed squarely at the people of the United States, saying that in a time of tight budgets, “I want the American people to understand we’ve got to leave room for us to continue our tradition of providing leadership when it comes to freedom, democracy, human rights.” Obama, in a brief news conference with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, assured Americans that he spends the bulk of each day worrying about the U.S. economy and how to strengthen it and create jobs. But he coupled that with the message that it is a U.S. obligation to support democracy around the globe,

Record Sierra snowfall over the winter now means record snow melt as temperatures rise, swelling Yosemite National Park’s iconic waterfalls, streams and rivers to their most turbulent level in years.

The force of water at Bridalveil Falls across the valley kicks up a mist that clouds the meadow below. It means that until the peak melt around mid-June, visitors will experience more treacherous beauty in Yosemite than even the travel brochures promise. “Breathtaking, that’s what it is,” said Lynne Bousie of Scotland, who stopped

NATO warplanes struck Moammar Gadhafi’s compound in Tripoli yesterday, as the new rebel administration warned it was fast running out of money because countries that promised financial aid have not come through. Ali Tarhouni, the rebel finance minister, complained that many countries that pledged aid have instead sent a string of businessmen looking for contracts from the oil-rich country. “They are very vocal in terms of (offering financial) help but all that we have seen is that they are ... looking for business,” Tarhouni told The Associated Press yesterday. Tarhouni recently returned to Benghazi, the rebel bastion, from a trip overseas to drum up aid that included a visit to Rome where the 22-nation Contract Group on Libya promised to set up a fund to speedily help finance the rebel administration. “I think even our friends do not understand the urgency of the situation. Either they don’t understand, or they don’t care,” Tarhouni said.

UNAIDS holds that condoms are an â&#x20AC;&#x153;integral and essentialâ&#x20AC;? part of HIV prevention programs, which it says should also include education about delaying the start of sexual activity, limiting sexual partners and marital fidelity. The Catholic Church opposes condom use as part of its overall opposition to artificial contraception.

The deaths of two inmates found dead in their cells in separate jails in Denver and Aurora yesterday are under investigation. In Denver, a 51-year-old male was found dead in his cell at the Van CiseSimonet Detention Center. Authorities say there was no sign of foul play but will perform an autopsy to discover how he died. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t named pending family notification. In Aurora, an inmate was found dead hours after being released from the hospital. That inmate, Anthony Dominic DeDora, was arrested Friday for violation of a court order. DeDora was taken to Aurora Medical Center at 4 p.m. for an unspecified condition and released just after midnight. An Aurora guard found DeDora unresponsive a few hours later and called paramedics. DeDora went back to the hospital and was pronounced dead.

Barcelona wins Champions League title

Lionel Messi scored one goal and created another yesterday, leading Barcelona to a 3-1 victory over Manchester United and a third Champions League title in six years. Barcelona dominated play at Wembley with trademark one-touch passing, but the Spanish champions needed the Argentine striker to conjure a 54th-minute solo strike from the edge of the penalty area to take the lead for the second time. There seemed to be no space as Messi was tracked by fullback Patrice Evra. But the two-time world player of the year spotted a gap between the central defenders and hit a shot down the middle, beating goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar. Messi followed his 53rd goal of a remarkable season with a fake and run that led to David Villa taking possession on the edge of the area. From there, the Spain striker curled a shot into the top corner of the net. With Pedro Rodriguez scoring the opening goal midway through the first half from an imaginative through ball from Xavi Hernandez, the win was as comprehensive as Barcelona’s 2-0 victory over United in the final two years ago. Wayne Rooney’s goal in the 34th minute for United left the score 1-1 at halftime. Rooney carried the ball to the edge of the area, slipping it to Ryan Giggs. Giggs knocked it back, giving Rooney the perfect opportunity to curl a shot past goalkeeper Victor Valdes at the far post. It was said before the game that Barcelona, which already had won a third straight Spanish league title, would be ranked among soccer’s truly great teams with a victory over United. Now, with four European titles, only Liverpool, AC Milan and Barcelona’s fierce rival Real Madrid have won more. The performance was so comfortable that Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola was able to bring on regular cap-

tain Carles Puyol for the last few moments, giving the injury-hit defender the chance to play a part in a memorable triumph. But in a gesture symbolizing Barcelona’s team ethic, Puyol handed the armband over to Eric Abidal. His place on the team had been in doubt after he had surgery this season to remove a liver tumor -- and the France defender lifted the famous trophy. After a shaky opening, Barcelona simply outclassed the English champions. Xavi, standing in as captain for Puyol, orchestrated play from in front of Sergio Busquets, while Andres Iniesta and Messi tormented United with pinpoint passing.

Djokovic, Nadal, Sharapova win easily in Paris

Maria Sharapova of Russia returns against Chan Yung-Jan of Taipei in her third round match at the French Open tennis tournament in Roland Garros stadium in Paris yesterday. Sharapova won in two sets 6-2, 6-3. AP photo.

What was shaping up as a struggle for Novak Djokovic at the French Open suddenly turned into something of a stroll. Tied at a set apiece with big-hitting 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro when play was suspended because of darkness a night earlier, Djokovic quickly faced two break points yesterday. He saved those, then broke del Potro in the next game, and that was pretty much that. “If he serves well, he can beat anybody, really,” Djokovic said. “I went (into) the match a bit more nervous than usual.” If that’s so, it didn’t really show. Djokovic completed

a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory in the third round, pushing his 2011 record to 40-0 and stretching his winning streak to 42 matches overall, including two Davis Cup matches in December. Djokovic’s 42-match run is tied for the third-longest by a man in the Open era, which began in 1968; Guillermo Vilas won 46 in a row in 1977. And Djokovic is off to the second-best start to a season, trailing only John McEnroe’s 42-0 in 1984. Djokovic is 4-0 this year against Nadal, including wins in two clay-court tournament finals this month, and some have speculated those results chipped away at the Spaniard’s self-belief. Nadal felt much better about himself and his game after reaching the fourth round by beating Croatian qualifier Antonio Veic 6-1, 6-3, 6-0. Twenty-eight of the 32 players still around in both fields are from Europe. That includes three Russian women who won yesterday: No. 7 Maria Sharapova, No. 25 Maria Kirilenko and unseeded Ekaterina Makarova. Also advancing: No. 4 Victoria Azarenka of Belarus, No. 6 Li Na of China, No. 12 Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, and No. 15 Andrea Petkovic of Germany. Kirilenko put together a 6-1, 6-1 victory that abruptly ended the surprising run of 114th-ranked Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands, who stunned No. 2 Kim Clijsters in the second round by taking 11 of the last 12 games. “Every day is different, and you face different opponents,” said Sharapova, who would complete a career Grand Slam by winning the French Open. “And you can never be overly confident, because if you are, then I don’t think you push yourself, you motivate yourself enough.”

Jays slip past White Sox in 14

Corey Patterson hit a game-ending homer in the 14th inning, Jose Bautista connected for his major leagueleading 20th home run and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox 9-8 yesterday. Patterson, who tied a career high with five hits, led off the 14th with a drive to right off Gavin Floyd (5-5) for his third of the season. It was the fourth game-winning homer of his career. Floyd started and went seven innings for Chicago in Wednesday’s loss at Texas. He came out of the bullpen in the 13th, his first relief appearance since Aug. 24, 2007, against Boston. Blue Jays left-hander Luis Perez (1-0) pitched 3 2/3 shutout innings for his first career win. The Blue Jays won back-to-back games for the first time since a season-high six-game winning streak from May 10-16. Brent Lillibridge homered for the White Sox, who lost two in a row for the first time since a three-game losing streak from May 3-6. Juan Rivera’s bases-loaded double in the seventh gave the Blue Jays an 8-6 lead, but their struggling bullpen couldn’t hold on. —These stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press
