Law, Politics Mix in Benghazi Trial Case against suspect in 2012 attack could shape Obama legacy Washington The ﬁrst prosecution arising from the Benghazi attacks is playing out in the federal courthouse blocks from both the White House and Capitol Hill, an appropriate setting for a case that has drawn stark lines between President Barack Obama and Republicans in Congress. The criminal proceedings could provide new insights into the 2012 attacks in Libya that killed four Americans and will serve as the
latest test of the U.S. legal system’s ability to handle terrorism suspects captured overseas. Unfolding during an election year, the case against alleged mastermind Ahmed Abu Khattala could help shape the legacy of Obama and spill over into the potential 2016 presidential candidacy of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Prosecutors have yet to reveal details about their case, although the broad outlines are in a twopage indictment unsealed Saturday. Untangling the law from the politics may prove especially challenging for the public, given how prominent the attacks on the diplomatic compound have become in
Backstory A 10-minute court appearance Saturday was the American public’s first concrete sense of Ahmed Abu Khatalla, the Libyan militant accused of being a ringleader of the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks. U.S. special forces captured him in Libya during a nighttime raid two weeks ago. (AP)
U.S. political discourse. “The story of this case is not the story of the Obama administration’s reaction to Benghazi,” said American University law professor Stephen Vladeck, a national security law expert. “The story of this case is those who were responsible for Benghazi and those who need to be held accountable for the four deaths that resulted.” Abu Khattala pleaded not guilty to a single conspiracy charge punishable by up to life in prison, but the Justice Department expects to bring additional charges soon that could be more substantial and carry more dire consequences.

Is the Border Patrol understaffed?
Next Stop: Mars NASA has tested new technology designed to bring spacecraft — and one day even astronauts — safely down to Mars, with the agency declaring the experiment a qualified success even though a giant parachute got tangled on the way down. Saturday’s $150 million experiment is the first of three involving the Low Density Supersonic Decelerator vehicle. Tests are being conducted at high altitude on Earth to mimic descent through the thin atmosphere of the Red Planet. Engineers won’t look at the parachute problem as a failure but as a way to learn more and apply that knowledge during future tests, said NASA engineer Dan Coatta with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. (AP)
Why the Rio Grande area? The shift to the Rio Grande Valley is part of a long-running trend where immigrants and smugglers change crossing locations faster than the government responds. San Diego was the hot spot until the mid-1990s, when 1,000 agents were added there. After traffic moved to Arizona, staffing in Tucson ballooned under President George W. Bush, who doubled the Border Patrol close to its current size of more than 21,000 agents
GREGORY BULL (AP)
The number of Border Patrol agents roughly doubled over the last decade to more than 21,000, but many of them work where illegal crossings are relatively low. One example of the staffing mismatch: the roughly 2,500 agents in the San Diego sector arrested 97 immigrants illegally crossing the border on June 14, according to an internal document reviewed by The Associated Press. On the same day, the roughly 3,200 agents in the Rio Grande Valley made 1,422 arrests.
“They don’t want to transfer a mass amount of agents and open a gap somewhere else where we have control.” — DAVID AGUILAR, THE BORDER PATROL CHIEF FROM 2004 TO 2010. SOME WARN AGAINST BULKING UP IN SOUTH TEX AS SINCE SMUGGLING ROUTES WOULD LIKELY CHANGE ALONG THE 1,954-MILE BORDER.
What’s being done? The Border Patrol does not have the staff to process all the immigrants crossing in the Rio Grande Valley, but faraway colleagues have time to spare. In response to the staffing imbalance, long-distance interviews — introduced last year in El Paso, Texas, and extended to California — are used to question hundreds of migrants every day. The video processing is a welcome change of pace in places like San Diego, where arrests are at a 45-year low.
291-2 The number of incumbents versus the number of challengers who have won their congressional primaries. More than halfway through the party primaries, sitting members of the House and Senate are overwhelmingly being pushed forward to retake their seats. This despite the fact that Congress is wildly unpopular. And don’t hold out hope for change in the general election: Over the past five decades, voters have routinely returned 9 of 10 incumbent candidates to the House. Senate races are a bit less predictable, but usually more than 80 percent of incumbents win. (AP)

Alaska Delivery Cost USPS $2.5B Shipping to far-ﬂung villages pricey for the cash-strapped agency Hooper Bay, Alaska It’s no easy feat for Royala Bell and her family to get groceries from the Lower 48: bread, potatoes, KoolAid, pancake mix and Coca-Cola. The U.S. Postal Service paid to ship items like these to a small settlement on Alaska’s western edge. A 12-pack of Coke alone cost the Postal Service $21 to get here.

How the Alaska Bypass Works: One Example
The journey of a pallet of soft drinks to western Alaska is typical of the U.S. Postal Service’s Alaska Bypass program. In this example alone, USPS paid private air carriers $3,167.77 to fly a 1,366-pound pallet to Hooper Bay, Alaska. Seattle | Population: 634,535 The drinks were bottled by Coca-Cola in Seattle, where in May the Alaska Commercial store in Hooper Bay placed an order. It was transported in a container ship.
Anchorage | Population: 298,610 The drinks were packed on a pallet and flown to Bethel, the closest hub to Hooper Bay. Grocery store postage cost: $334.35. Price USPS paid air carriers: $1,038.16, for a hit of $703.81
Bethel | Population: 6,000 The pallet is broken down to fit into a propeller plane. Grocery store cost: $150.21. Price USPS paid air carriers: $2,129.61, for a hit of $1,979.40.

eral subsidies. “I think the food is too, too high,” Bell said. Rural Alaskans are not the only ones paying a steep price. The system cost the Postal Service
$77.5 million last year, agency ofﬁcials said, with ordinary stampbuying customers covering the tab, while commercial interests beneﬁt, from the airline and shipping industries to rural grocery chains. The late Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, pushed an earmark through Congress 33 years ago to subsidize shipping costs and help constituents back home. But today, the Postal Service is going broke. Since then, the Alaska Bypass has been untouchable. Tinkering with it would rankle politicians from other rural states who fear this could mean scaling back mail to other far-ﬂung places. And even with one of the Senate’s top power brokers gone, the legislative muscle of this most remote state remains ironclad. LISA REIN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Militants Declare Islamic State Leader of jihad group fighting in Iraq aims to restore caliphate
“Put simply, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has declared war on al-Qaeda.”
— CH A RLE S LISTER, OF THE BROOKINGS
The extremist group battling its way through swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria declared the creation of a formal Islamic state on Sunday, stirring up the global jihadist movement and laying down an ambitious challenge to al-Qaeda’s established leadership. In an audio statement posted on the Internet, the spokesman of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria announced the restoration of the 7th-century Islamic caliphate, a long-declared goal of the al-Qaeda renegades who broke with the mainstream organization earlier this year and have since asserted control over large areas spanning

group had previously called itself. Henceforth, ISIS will simply be known as the Islamic State, in recognition of the breakdown of international borders achieved as a result of the group’s conquests, he said. ISIS’s leader, an Iraqi known as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, will be the caliph, or leader, of the new caliphate, and all Muslims worldwide will be required to pay allegiance to him. It was unclear what immediate impact the declaration would
have on the ground in Syria and Iraq, though experts predicted it could herald inﬁghting among the Sunni militants who have formed an alliance with the Islamic State in its blitz across Iraq. The greatest impact, however, could be on the broader international jihadist movement, in particular the future of al-Qaeda, which has long carried the mantle of the international jihadi cause. But the Islamic State has done in Syria and Iraq what al-Qaeda never has — control a large swath of territory in the heart of the Arab world. The state will cover lands already under Islamic State control, stretching from the northern Syrian province of Aleppo to the eastern Iraqi province of Diyala, the statement said, adding that eventually it will be extended to include the entire Muslim world.

RESCUERS SEARCH Sunday for workers believed buried in the rubble of a
building in southern India that collapsed during monsoon rains. At least 22 people died when the 11-story building went down Saturday in Chennai.
Egypt will restrict sermons during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan to topics of faith and morality, the state’s top ofﬁcial in charge of religious affairs said Sunday, in the latest measure by the government to control mosques and limit access of opponents to them. The announcement is yet another move by authorities to crackdown on supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, and limiting in the process free speech in the deeply polarized country. Mohammed Mokhtar Gomaa said the decision should ensure that sermons during Islam’s holy month of fasting “unite people, not divide
them.” He said the religious speech had been “hijacked” for political purposes, in reference to the previous government, led by Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. Since Morsi’s ouster, religious authorities moved to purge mosques from preachers deemed supportive of Islamists and have set guidelines for Friday sermons. Some 12,000 independent preachers have been barred from delivering sermons. In recent months, the ministry’s website had been posting outlines for the weekly sermons delivered each Friday. Anyone who strays from them in Egypt’s more than 100,000 mosques risks removal. MARIAM RIZK (AP)

Washington Ah, parking. The ugly duckling of urban policy. So deceptively dull. Yet capable of such intrigue. Political meddling. Ethical temptation. Rank hypocrisy. It’s all there. For months, city ofﬁcials have wrangled over a D.C. Council proposal to create a single new parking behemoth: one agency, instead of three, that would set parking policy, write tickets and handle the appeals by unhappy motorists. Advocates want better coordination among ofﬁcials, smarter parking technology — and fewer careless mistakes, such as tickets sent to the wrong car owner. The problem is that creating a Department of Parking Management would invite plenty of new problems, ofﬁcials warn, including stymieing good overall planning. Still, the debate appears to be speeding up some long-needed changes. Earlier this month, the District’s Department of Transportation went live with a digital tip box to help address one of the city’s most irksome parking annoyances: signs that trip up drivers by giving conﬂicting instructions on times that parking is allowed. A choice for “Conﬂicting Signs” now joins “Rat Abatement,” “Pothole” and “Illegal Dumping” among the service requests on the city’s 311.dc.gov website. City parking responsibilities are divided in three: DDOT decides who does and doesn’t get to park where (at least when it’s not being overruled by the D.C. Council). The Department of Public Works handles the bulk of the enforcement. And the
ASTRID RIECKEN (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
Proposal for a single D.C. parking agency has met resistance
Currently, city parking responsibilities are handled by three different agencies.
Meanwhile … The D.C. Department of Transportation has drafted an ambitious plan for how residents will move around D.C. by 2040. MoveDC sets a vision for expanded transportation, reliable public transit and less personal vehicle use. The $54 billion plan received mixed reviews Friday at a Council hearing, where some speakers praised the plan’s goals to widen access for pedestrians and cyclists and others complained about the proposals to take away car lanes for bikes and transit lanes, reduce parking and impose tolls on drivers. Consensus among many speakers was that the plan failed to address how the city would implement the recommendations. (T WP)
Department of Motor Vehicles is responsible for adjudicating tickets. D.C. Council member Mary Cheh’s Transportation Reorganization Act, released in April, would consolidate those responsibilities. But yanking parking policy from the DDOT would be a “step backward,” said City Administrator Allen Lew, who opposes the move. “Regulation of parking in the District should not be isolated from
other roadway management decisions,” Lew said. Lucinda Babers, the DMV chief, said it’s vital to keep a clear division between the people who write the tickets and the people who hear the appeals. She often gets emails and phone calls from people trying to get around the adjudication process. “It’s so powerful for me to be able to say, ‘My agency doesn’t issue tickets.’ If I was the director of the Department of Parking Management and I could not say that, then the ethical pressures … would be so great they would blow the ethics out of the water.” That and other arguments seem to be gaining traction, and Council staff say the consolidation of parking functions is increasingly unlikely, though other efforts at reorganization are still in play. Cheh, who chairs the Council’s Transportation Committee, said her goal has been to provoke creative thinking about the city’s management of transportation overall, and she’s not wedded to the particular language in her bill, which will be revised. Further sessions on overseeing the city’s transit plans, including the streetcar system, are scheduled for later this summer. MICHAEL L ARIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

measure that would fully legalize possession of marijuana in D.C., plan to announce this week that they are closing in on 60,000 signatures — a comfortable buffer over the 22,600 needed to ensure the measure qualiﬁes for the November ballot.

But supporters now see it as a race against Congress to get the measure certiﬁed. Should federal lawmakers pass a spending plan with the restriction before Nov. 4, there is precedent for D.C. elections ofﬁcials to decide that they are prohibited from even counting votes on the issue. If Congress hasn’t passed a budget by then, however, there is a strong chance that on Nov. 4, D.C. will legalize pot. A ARON C. DAVIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Mystery Over Two Bodies Found in Shaw Continues Washington
D.C. may curb pop-ups like these.
D.C.’s planning office last week released proposals that could curb the city’s rising number of “pop-ups” — renovated homes that get extended upward by one story or more. Under the proposals, developers would be able to increase the height of family rowhouses in one of the city’s predominant residential areas — the R-4 zone — only to a maximum of 35 feet and would need special permission from the Board of Zoning Adjustment to reach today’s by-right cap of 40 feet. These pop-ups — often derided as “middle ﬁngers” — are being built to even higher heights in the city’s other zones. One wellknown pop-up, at 1013 V St. NW, is in a commercial zone that allows for buildings to be 65 feet high.

Odds Are Good for a Legal Pot Vote in D.C.
The three quiet roommates hardly ever raised concern from longtime neighbors on the block in Shaw. But the rowhouse on Eighth Street, between S and T streets in Northwest, has caused an uncomfortable stir on the street after two occupants were found dead there this month while the third is in police custody, charged with murder in connection with one of the deaths. Far from clarifying what happened, the arrest has only complicated a story line that might never be fully understood. Police found a decaying body hidden under an air mattress in the attic crawl space. Later, the authorities found a sec-
ond corpse partially buried in the backyard. A confession that one of the victims made just before he was killed, according to a statement the accused man gave police, has only added to the macabre intrigue. The third roommate — Jeffrey Bernard Neal, 21, — is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Leon Young, 22. Court documents say that after Neal was arrested, he told detectives he hit Young with a hammer moments after Young threatened him with a ninja-style weapon and told him he had killed Delano DeWhitt Wingfield, 23. All three were friends and classmates at McKinley Technology High School in D.C. PETER HERMANN (THE WASHINGTON POST)
In the District, a Plan for Longer School Days Meets Resistance Washington D.C. Chancellor Kaya Henderson has championed lengthening school days as one of her top priorities for lifting student achievement, but her effort to expand the number of schools with longer days has been met with stiff resistance.
Eight D.C. traditional schools have experimented with longer days, and most have seen gains on standardized tests. Henderson sought to add an hour of instruction at an additional 42 schools, but at almost all of them, teachers either voted against adopting the longer day or union members prevented the issue

Cover Story day with an agreement between the Smithsonian Institution and the National Park Service. Thus, the biggest concern over a decadeslong tradition was resolved. But it revealed an underlying debate about the purpose of the space at the heart of the nation’s capital.
The $40 million renovation of the National Mall’s damaged turf led to controversial National Park Service regulations governing the park’s grass panels.

Mall Incites a Turf War Washington At the intersection of Seventh Street and the Mall, two distinct views of one of the country’s most visited parks are on display. Facing the Capitol, a carpet of lush grass stretches from sidewalk to sidewalk, the manicured green dotted with strolling tourists, Frisbee players and picnic blankets. In the opposite direction, crowds of visitors meander between performance stages and exhibits at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, its large white tents staked into the trampled, weed-ridden ground. Here is the Mall as an iconic symbol of American ideals, conveyed through meticulously preserved landscape. And here it is as a robustly used gathering place, a public showcase for creative expression and the exchange of ideas.
So, which is it? Can it be both? The answer, so far, is that it’s complicated. The yearslong, $40 million renovation of the Mall’s badly damaged turf led to new National Park Service regulations governing the park’s grass panels. Sports teams are adjusting to the revised protocol — red ﬂags mean take the game elsewhere, please — but large-scale events such as the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, which annually draws about 1 million visitors, have found it far more challenging to adapt. The Mall, as its trustees like to say, has been “loved to death,” even deemed a “failed” public space by a 2011 Atlantic Cities ranking. Visitors often log disappointed reviews on travel sites. When tourists take a photo, they want a background that captures grandeur; instead, “weeds grow where dreams once ﬂourished,” the trust’s site declares. But ridding America’s front lawn of its weeds means some dreams get relocated. The cost of a continual effort of turf restoration can

prove prohibitive; after more than a decade on the Mall, organizers of the National Book Festival announced in January that the festival would move to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The turf renovation was also behind this year’s
Following the approval of a new plan for the Mall in 2010, upgrades in recent years include restoration of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, repair of the Tidal Basin seawall by the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, restoration of the D.C. War Memorial and the first phase of a turf restoration project — a $16 million endeavor that renovated the grass panels between Third and Seventh streets NW (the next phase is set to begin in August). In the wake of massive crowds for President Barack Obama’s second inauguration in 2013, Ken Salazar, then Secretary of the Interior, issued an order expressing concern about “the extreme levels of use” the area endures.

cancellation of the National Council of Negro Women’s annual Black Family Reunion. After months of uncertainty surrounding the future of the Folklife Festival, its place on the Mall for the next ﬁve years was secured Wednes-
“It’s how it’s used, it’s not the grass that’s important to people,” says Kim Stryker, who created a grassroots advocacy group, Save the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. “It’s the human interaction on the Mall that’s really made a difference.” A 2012 letter written by Thomas Luebke, secretary of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts, describes the park’s top priority differently. “The Commission members emphasized that the integrity of the Mall as a continuous, green, designed landscape should not be compromised,” the letter says. It notes that “the pedestrian experience of the Mall” is the paramount concern — i.e., event organizers would foot the bill to re-beautify the grounds. But appearance versus use is a “false choice,” says Caroline Cunningham, president of the Trust for the National Mall. She says there are ways to accommodate both and notes that restoration of the grass panels was necessary after decades of neglect. But Stryker says the agreement signed this week is “far from a home run,” and her organization recently launched a Change.org petition to lobby for a permanent event space on the Mall. Next year, the Folklife Festival will have to adhere to the new rules. For now, it’s stationed as usual in the center of the Mall, where the yet-to-be-restored landscape is pockmarked with dust and clover patches. It is the site of storied marches, protests and concerts, all of which have left their scars. CAITLIN GIBSON (THE WASHINGTON POST )

A Late Meltdown for Mexico RICARDO MAZALAN (AP)
Netherlands scores in 88th minute and injury time in 2-1 win World Cup
Costa Rica beat Greece in a penalty shootout to reach the quarterfinals.
Klaas Jan Huntelaar and Wesley Sneijder scored late goals Sunday to give the Netherlands a 2-1 victory over Mexico and a spot in the World Cup quarterfinals. Huntelaar, who came on as a 76th-minute substitute, scored the winning goal from the penalty spot deep in injury time after Rafael Marquez brought down Arjen Robben in the area. “You don’t know when your chance will come, but it was today, and so you grab it with both hands,” said Huntelaar, who was making his ﬁrst appearance at this year’s World Cup. “And it was fantastic.” Giovani Dos Santos gave the Mexicans the lead in the 48th minute, but Sneijder equalized for the Dutch in the 88th.
Left: The Netherlands’ Arjen Robben goes down to earn a penalty kick. Right: A Mexico fan sits in the stands after the match.
It was the ﬁrst time Sneijder, who scored ﬁve goals at the last World Cup in South Africa, has found the net in Brazil. Robben has already scored three goals for the Dutch at this year’s tournament, but after earning the late penalty, he handed the ball to Huntelaar.
It was heartbreak again for Mexico, which has now reached the second stage of the World Cup six straight times without winning. The last time the team made the quarterﬁnals was when it hosted the tournament in 1986. After the ﬁnal whistle, the Mexican players collapsed, distraught
on the turf while many of their fans were in tears. Mexico coach Miguel Herrera blamed the referee for the loss, saying Robben dived to earn the penalty. “Today it was the man with the whistle who eliminated us from the World Cup,” Herrera said. MIKE CORDER (AP)
World Cup Highly physical, probably defensive and anxiety-ridden for sure. Not exactly the kind of happy football that fans have enjoyed so far at the World Cup, but it’s the likely scenario for Tuesday’s second-round match between Belgium and the United States. The stakes certainly are high enough. Belgium has not reached the quarterﬁnals since 1986 and the U.S. team has already exceeded expectations by emerging from a tough opening group and wants to ride that momentum.
“Don’t be content,” U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. “Nobody can claim that he reached his 100 percent yet.” That was after the Americans played three grueling games in the Amazon jungle and Brazil’s tropical northeast coast. The U.S. ﬁnished ahead of Portugal and Ghana, taking second place in Group G behind Germany. Tuesday’s winner will face either Argentina or Switzerland — playing at noon Tuesday on ESPN — in Brasilia on Saturday. Getting past Belgium is no easy task. So far it has conceded only one

goal — a penalty at that — in three games. And in Thibaut Courtois, the team has arguably the most exciting young goalkeeper in the world. Belgium has treaded extremely carefully to line up three one-goal victories and emerge from its group with a perfect record. Holding back, avoiding errors and pouncing late has become its mantra, and if fans deplore the lack of joy — too bad. “If you ask me whether to produce thrills and leave after the group stage, or win all games 1-0 and win the World Cup, I prefer 1-0. That is clear,” Belgium coach Marc Wilmots said. R AF CASERT (AP)
Tweets generated in the minute after Chilean defender Gonzalo Jara’s penalty shot hit the right post and
allowed Brazil to avoid an early exit from the World Cup on Saturday. That broke the previous mark set during this year’s Super Bowl. About 382,000 tweets were sent just after the Seahawks’ Percy Harvin returned a kickoff 87 yards for a touchdown, according to data compiled by the microblogging site Twitter. But overall, the NFL showpiece game generated nearly 25 million tweets, trouncing the 16.4 million during Saturday’s Round of 16 match, the most-tweeted yet during the tournament. (AP)
Costa Rica Survives in Penalties World Cup Ten-man Costa Rica beat Greece in a penalty shootout Sunday to reach the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time. Michael Umana scored the decisive penalty as Costa Rica won the shootout 5-3 after the game ended 1-1 following extra time. Theofanis Gekas saw his penalty saved by Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas for the only miss in the shootout. Costa Rica had taken the lead early in the second half of regulation time through captain Bryan Ruiz but then had defender Oscar Duarte sent off in the 66th minute. Greece scored an equalizer in injury time of regulation when Sokratis Papastathopoulos smashed in a rebound and ﬁnally made the team’s numerical advantage pay off. Costa Rica will play the Netherlands in the quarterﬁnals Saturday. GER ALD IMR AY (AP)

Rose Overcomes Late Mistake
As Always, ‘Big 4’ Hanging Around
Englishman atones for bogey on No. 18 and wins in playoff
Men’s side has been predictable, but top two women are out
Big 3 Free Agents Chris Bosh told the Miami Heat on Sunday that he is opting out of the last two years of his contract, and will join LeBron James and Dwyane Wade as free agents starting at midnight Tuesday. Bosh had until Monday to make his decision and choose to forgo $42.7 million over the next two seasons. He has said many times in recent weeks that he wants to stay in Miami, and it now is clear that he’s willing to stretch his money over a longer period of time in order to make that happen. (AP)
Justin Rose got his mistake out of the way and won the Quicken Loans National in a playoff Sunday over Shawn Stefani. Tied for the lead as he played the 18th hole at Congressional, Rose tried to hit through two trees left of the fairway and overturned the shot. It ran down a bank and into the water, and he had to hole a 15-foot bogey putt just to stay in the game. That proved to be the biggest shot he hit all day. Behind him, Stefani made bogey on the 17th and narrowly missed a birdie putt on the 18th to set up the ﬁrst playoff in the eight-year

history of the event. And then it was Stefani who essentially repeated Rose’s mistake on the ﬁrst extra hole at No. 18. After taking a drop because the grandstands blocked his view
of the green, he wanted to play his low punch to the right side of the green. His shot also had too much turn and bounded into the water. Rose hit the middle of the green from the fairway and two-putted
Wimbledon The so-called “Big 4” who have won 35 of the past 37 Grand Slam singles titles — Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer — are all around for the second week at Wimbledon, joined by the new major winner on the block, Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka. The same can’t be said on the women’s side, where top-seeded and ﬁve-time champion Serena Williams won’t see any action at the All England Club in Week 2 except in doubles with her sister Venus, another ﬁve-time Wimbledon winner who is also out of singles.

for par. Stefani made double bogey. It was Rose’s ﬁrst win since the U.S. Open last summer at Merion, and it felt like he won another U.S. Open as tough as Congressional played. With putting surfaces that had a brown tinge to them even before the leaders teed off, and thick rough all week, it was a far stronger test than when the Open was held in soggy conditions in 2011. “Congressional got its reputation back after the U.S. Open,” Rose said. “I really enjoy this type of golf and this type of test. I think it tested all of us. I’m delighted.” Rose and Stefani each closed with a 1-under 70 — only six players broke par in the ﬁnal round — and ﬁnished at 4-under 280. It was only the second time this year that the winning score was higher than the 36-hole lead (6 under). DOUG FERGUSON (AP)

ers remaining in the singles draw held sessions at the nearby Aorangi Park practice courts. Federer and Murray were there at the same time, although due to rain delays on Friday, Federer, like Nadal, won’t play his fourth-round match until Tuesday. Federer says he’s amazed as anyone about the Big 4’s ability to maintain such a stellar record in Grand Slam tournaments. “I came through the ranks where it was normal for top guys to have a bad Slam, have maybe two bad Slams from time to time, but it barely happens anymore,” Federer said. “It’s like such a shock when it does. “I think I’ve been surprised how consistent I’ve been personally, but even more so by everybody else who is just like normal to get to quarters, get to semis. Because I know how small the margins are.” DENNIS PASSA (AP)

Harper’s return after missing 57 games with a torn ligament in his left thumb that required surgery would reunite the Nationals’ lineup for the first time since opening day.

TV THIS WEEK TONIGHT, 10 P.M.
‘Under the Dome’ (CBS)
“Catfish: The TV Show”
“Pretty Little Liars”
THINKSTOCK/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION; SHOW ART COURTESY STUDIOS
“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”
These shows were among the top 10 most tweeted shows for the week of June 16-22, according to Nielsen.
Stephen King, author of the novel the show is based on, wrote the script for the summer drama’s second season premiere. Barbie finds himself dependent on Big Jim (Dean Norris, below) for his survival. The fate of everyone under the dome comes into question when it suddenly and mysteriously becomes magnetized.
Hash What Happens Live During new episodes of “Pretty Little Liars,” the marketing and publicity teams at ABC Family huddle in a conference room to tweet live with fans. So do cast members and the show’s producers from where and when they can — and the dialogue often pays oﬀ. Nielsen’s Twitter tracking division said “PLL” is the top-tweeted show and ranked No. 1 for the week of June 16-22. Danielle Mullin, ABC Family’s vice president of marketing, goes so far as to call Twitter “the new water cooler.” While some critics argue the second screen experience serves to distract viewers, networks see nothing but an upside. Some insight into hashtags and TV viewership. ALICIA R ANCILIO (AP)
Hashtags make it easier to find a topic. Liz Myers, in the TV Partnerships division at Twitter, said viewers “don’t have to be mutually following somebody or digging around.” Sometimes hashtags are straightforward with a show’s title (#TrueBlood). Other times they’re used as conversation starters for a certain episode. (#TobyIsBack aired in a recent “PLL” episode when that character made a return.) Myers said hashtags “can pinpoint moments, drive voting (on a competition series), create content” and help us talk about a show.
If DVRs are helping people watch TV shows at their leisure, live tweeting may provide an incentive to tune in when it counts, in real time. “The more people who talk about it, the more people watch,” said Jenn Deering Davis, co-founder and chief custom officer of Union Metrics, a company that analyzes social media use. Mullin said she believes tweets can play into “FOMO — fear of missing out. When you’re on Twitter and your entire feed is people talking about something, if you’re not watching you start to feel left out.”
‘History Detectives Special Investigations’ (PBS) Spun off from the original “History
Detectives,” this new series intends to answer mysteries from the past through input from experts from various disciplines. The opening episode, “Civil War Sabotage?” examines the 1865 destruction of the SS Sultana.
Rewarding Viewers Networks try to reward viewers for their tweets. Not only will they retweet fans’ tweets from show accounts but sometimes air tweets on-screen live, in reruns or during promos. When it was revealed that Jen Arnold, above, of TLC’s “The Little Couple,” had cancer, the network selected sentiments from fans with the hashtag #GetWellJen to show on-screen.
Tweeting about a TV show, and using specific hashtags, is like an immediate focus group. “We want to give (viewers) what they want,” said Kristen Variola, director of social media for TLC. “If we see something is really resonating with the fans we like to create more content around that.” Mullin added, “In this day and age it’s very hard for any show runner or writer’s room to stay off social media. It’s a great way to hear the voice of the people. … (Feedback) is a great tool for storytellers to use when deciding what direction to take their show in.”
Keeps Momentum Going
Other Platforms Count, Too
Tweeting also keeps people interested for the long haul. Said Variola: “We are looking at social media as a way to connect with fans year-round, not just when our shows are on the air. With TLC’s ‘Cake Boss,’ we’re talking about cakes year-round. Not just when you see (its star) Buddy Valastro on the air.”
Twitter isn’t the only form of social media engaging TV viewers. ABC Family said during big “tent pole episodes” (like a premiere, finale or special episode) “someone is monitoring Pinterest and live pinning fashion tips, somebody is taking snippets of scenes and putting them up on Tumblr as gifs. ... Fans love it.”

‘Black Box’ (ABC) For a musiccontest winner, the aftermath isn’t necessarily happy, as the new episode “Sing Like Me” suggests. Dr. Black (Kelly Reilly, above) deals with such a victor — a woman who no longer can gauge musical pitch — as part of a study. The research also involves a man impacted by being struck by lightning.

A Singular Voice Bobby Womack’s legacy reached far beyond his R&B roots
“When he opens his mouth and that voice comes out, it is something that is somehow touched by God.”
SATURDAY, AUGUST 30, 2014 10 am - 10 pm at the WALTER E. WASHINGTON CONVENTION CENTER

Bobby Womack, a highly influential R&B singer-songwriter who influenced artists of a range of genres, has died. He was 70. With an incomparable voice few could match, Womack was a powerful songwriter whose hits like “Across 110th Street,” “If You Think You’re Lonely Now” and “I Wish He Didn’t Trust Me So Much” inspired future stars in rock ’n’ roll and R&B. “He had a style that nobody else could ever capture,” gospel singer Candi Staton said in a statement. “I loved him and I will miss him so, so very much.” Womack’s death comes as something of a surprise. Though he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease two years ago and overcame addiction and multiple health issues, recently, he seemed in good health and spirits when he performed earlier this month at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. The soul singer cut a wide path

Bobby Womack inspired musicians with R&B hits like “Across 110th Street.”
through the music business as a performer and songwriter in a career that spanned seven decades. Womack was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009, long after he’d lost his fortune and his career to addiction.
