Economy Drives College Choices Scholarships, grants key to being able to pay bill, report finds
How America Pays for College Financial aid covers a bigger portion of college costs than it has in the past.
Washington College costs are driving decisions about which schools to attend, what to study and even where to live, according to a report from loan giant Sallie Mae. Parents no longer foot the largest portion of the bill, according to the lender’s annual survey. That role goes to grants and scholarships, with student loans coming in third. While the recession has largely passed, economic worries have not, and many families are making college choices driven by fears of tuition hikes and job losses, according to the Sallie Mae-Ipsos Public Affairs report. The annual survey of student

ﬁnancial aid found students earned about $6,300 in grants and scholarships to pay for college costs, taking the top spots from parents. Student loans were the third most common source to pick up the bill for courses, housing and books. The average student borrowed $8,815 in federal loans.
The rate for those loans was the subject of debate in the Senate last week, as lawmakers considered a compromise that would offer some students lower rates for the next few years but would prescribe higher rates for future classes. The Senate is expected to vote on that White House-backed

Fighting Words At a House Judiciary immigration subcommittee hearing Tuesday, House Republicans took a tentative step toward offering citizenship to some immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children, but they hit immediate resistance from the White House on down as Democrats said it wasn’t enough — leaving prospects cloudy for one of President Barack Obama’s top second-term priorities.

compromise this week. “Rates on every single new college loan will come down this school year, offering relief to nearly 11 million borrowers,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Tuesday. The White House estimates the average undergraduate student would save $1,500 in interest charges if Congress acts before leaving town for the August recess. A vote has not been scheduled. Parents’ enthusiasm for college has not shriveled, though. The survey found 85 percent of parents saw college bills as an investment in their children’s future. “We’re in a new normal where big ticket items like college, families will pay for them but won’t stress about them too much,” said Cliff Young, managing director at Ipsos. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points. PHILIP ELLIOT T (AP)

Few barriers were set up along the pope’s route Monday, and thousands easily entered streets meant to be closed to the public.

Federico Lombardi made clear that despite the mobs, Francis wouldn’t change his decision to use an open-air vehicle and speciﬁcally planned to use the open car for the very
events expected to draw the largest crowds, including a meeting with Catholic youth for World Youth Day on Copacabana beach that is expected to draw a crowd of 1 million on Thursday. Lombardi said the pontiff deliberately chose to use the same car he uses in St. Peter’s Square and not the bulletproof popemobile. BRADLEY BROOKS AND NICOLE WINFIELD (AP)

Brazilian security forces blamed each other Tuesday for the mob scenes that erupted around Pope Francis after his arrival in the country. And the chaotic crowds of faithful Catholics that swarmed Francis on Monday raised questions about what plans are in place to protect the pontiff, and who is responsible for them. No one took responsibility for the trafﬁc ﬁasco, which began when the driver of the car the pope was riding in made a wrong turn and ended up stalled on a trafﬁc-choked street and swarmed by thousands. Ofﬁcials with the Federal Police, who have control of the pope’s security in urban Rio, said the blame belonged to Federal Highway Police.

Washington After taking a bit of a beating from riders on the setting of rush-hour service standards last year, Metro staff will ask the board of directors Thursday to approve standards for off-peak service. This will be the standard for frequency of trains under normal conditions: At midday, trains are expected to run no more than six minutes apart in the rail system’s core and no more than 12 minutes
Streetcar Testing The District Department of Transportation is testing its first three streetcars along a track that runs parallel to South Capitol Street, just east of Bolling Air Force Base in Anacostia. After going through basic checks, which on Monday morning included the braking characteristics of one car, they will be transferred to their route along H Street/Benning Road NE for a lengthy period of practice runs. If all goes very well, they could begin carrying passengers around the end of this year. (T WP)
apart in other segments. At night, Metro expects trains in the core to run no more than 15 minutes apart and no more than 20 minutes apart in other areas. At off-peak times, Metro will desire a minimum of 80 riders per car and a maximum of 120. The optimum would be 100 peo-
ple per car in the parts of the system where ridership is heaviest. The latest round of standardsetting was presented to a board committee two weeks ago and has not generated as much controversy as last year’s round. In neither case did the proposed standards actually change LIPOSUCTION-TUMMYTUCK.com

the times for trains or the conditions aboard the cars. The standards are a policy initiative by Metro. The setting of standards at least provides a way of deﬁning “quality service” and a basis for meeting federal rules barring discrimination in service. But the proposals for peakservice standards were confusing to riders, with some expecting that their adoption would decrease the level of service. Also, the debate over the peak standards came as Metro was introducing Rush Plus service, so the peak-standards debate provided a focal point for riders’ anger. ROBERT THOMPSEN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

D.C. Case Ends for Man Who Shot Pit Bull
Judge drops charge of unregistered-gun possession after deal Washington
It happened so quickly that Ben Srigley didn’t have time to ponder his lawbreaking. With three pit bulls attacking a young boy on the street outside his Northwest home in January, he grabbed a 9mm Ruger P-90 handgun, ran outside and shot one of the dogs to death. A D.C. police ofﬁcer shot and killed the other two. Srigley legally bought the handgun in Virginia but failed to register it in D.C. His act of saving a child’s
life exposed him as a criminal — and as unwitting fodder for gunrights advocates who saw his case as a perfect example of why they term the city’s gun laws draconian. Srigley’s action left the D.C. Attorney General’s Ofﬁce, which typically prosecutes gun offenses involving unregistered ﬁrearms, with a conundrum: charge and possibly jail a man dubbed a hero or endure criticism that some of the strictest gun laws in the nation are not evenly enforced? Deput y At tor ney Genera l Andrew Fois called it a “one in 10 million case” in which authorities “tried to balance what he did, the law that he broke, the circumstances under which he broke it
The amount donated to Ben Srigley’s defense for possessing an unregistered firearm. In his only public comment, he posted a statement on his company’s Facebook page saying he would give all money to the injured child to defray medical bills. (T WP)
The pit bull shooting came just nine days after D.C.’s attorney general refused to charge NBC journalist David Gregory for waving an empty ammunition clip on national television, which is a crime, enraging critics who said it favored celebrity and demonstrated the hypocrisy of the stiff gun laws. Ben Srigley’s case got caught up in similar rhetoric. “The day we allow the state to criminalize acts of compassion and heroism is the day we become a nation of cowards,” said Peter Upton, founder of Second Amendment Check, which helped raise money for Srigley’s defense. ( T WP)
and what he did to help the boy.” Fois’ team offered Srigley a deal in May to spare him jail. First, he would pay a $1,000 ﬁne. Then, after a planned moved to Maryland, he would register his handgun and two long guns he had in storage. Lastly, he would stay out of trouble for two months. In return, a charge of possessing an unregistered ﬁre-

arm would be deferred until July. On Tuesday, the conditions met, D.C. Superior Court Michael McCarthy accepted the prosecutor’s motion to dismiss the charge. Srigley can now petition to get his arrest expunged. The 39-year-old has not spoken publicly about his ordeal, and he chose to stay quiet even after the case was dismissed. His attorney said his client’s only position is that he’s “grateful he was able to save the life of a child. He is not commenting on society’s gun laws.” He said Srigley “regrets that he violated the law, but he’s happy he had a gun that day. He does not want to be a poster child for gun advocacy.”
The cause of a crash at a Maryland Sam’s Club on Tuesday wasn’t immediately clear.
Three Injured After Car Crashes into Md. Store Gaithersburg, Md. Police say a car has slammed into a Sam’s Club wholesale store in Maryland, injuring three people including a man who suffered a leg amputation. Authorities say a 77-year-old man struck a woman about 1 p.m. Tuesday in the parking lot of the Gaithersburg store with his car before crashing into the building, where the two men were hit. The man with the leg amputa-
tion was ﬂown to Baltimore’s Shock Trauma center with serious injuries, police said, while another man was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The woman, who was accompanied by two young children, was taken for evaluation at a hospital for minor injuries. Police say the driver wasn’t injured and is being interviewed by detectives. The cause of the crash wasn’t immediately clear. (AP)
Annandale, Va. The University of Northern Virginia, operating out of an office building on Little River Turnpike in Annandale, Va., has been ordered to cease and desist after 15 years of operation, due mostly to the fact that it has been unaccredited by any recognized group for five years now, and also because it failed four audits by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia. The school, not widely known to many who thought they knew Northern Virginia, has had problems with its ownership, its recordkeeping and with allegations that it was simply a way for foreign nationals to obtain a U.S. visa. It was one of the subjects of an inves-

The state council said it would notify students that the school is no longer legally authorized to operate in Virginia, would confer with the Department of Homeland Security to determine viable options for foreign students and would estimate claims for unearned tuition.

Governor’s Apology A Shift in Strategy McDonnell pays $124K to executive, faces controversy over donor head-on Richmond
June 4, 2011 Cailin McDonnell marries Chris Young, above, with a reception at the Executive Mansion. Guests feast on poached jumbo shrimp and free-range chicken without knowing they came courtesy of Williams.
July 28, 2011 The McDonnell family spends a long weekend at Williams’ vacation home near Roanoke, Va. The McDonnells borrow Williams’ Ferrari, which retails for $190,000, to drive back to Richmond.
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell announced Tuesday that he and his wife have repaid more than $120,000 to Star Scientiﬁc chief executive Jonnie Williams Sr. and apologized for the ﬁrst time for the controversy involving the donor. “I am deeply sorry for the embarrassment certain members of my family and I brought upon my beloved Virginia and her citizens,” McDonnell said in a statement announced via Twitter. “I want you to know that I broke no laws and that I am committed to regaining your sacred trust and conﬁdence. I hope today’s action is another step toward that end.” The McDonnells paid back $52,278 for a $50,000 loan made to ﬁrst lady Maureen McDonnell
in 2011 and $71,837 for loans made last year to a real-estate company the governor owns with his sister. The loans were repaid by the governor, the real-estate company or McDonnell’s family, the statement said. The announcement represents a shift in strategy for McDonnell since he brought on a new lawyer. It’s the first time McDonnell has apologized or acknowledged that he and his family embarrassed the state. Federal and state investigators have been looking into the relationship between the McDonnells and Williams. The Washington Post report-
ed that the governor and Maureen McDonnell had promoted Star’s dietary supplement around the time that Williams picked up the $15,000 catering tab at the wedding of one of their daughters. Since then, more gifts have come to light. McDonnell and his wife have taken steps to promote Star’s Anatabloc anti-inf lammatory drug, billed as holding promise for treating Alzheimer’s and other ailments. McDonnell has said he and the ﬁrst lady did nothing to boost Anatabloc that they would not have done to promote any Virginia-based enterprise. L AUR A VOZZELL A AND ROSALIND S. HELDERMAN (THE WASHINGTON POST)
A Call for More Inquiries A government watchdog group called Tuesday on the Internal Revenue Service to investigate whether Gov. Bob McDonnell, first lady Maureen McDonnell and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli failed to report and pay taxes on gifts received from Star Scientific and its chief executive. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed formal complaints, alleging that the gifts are income, subject to income tax. “Al Capone, after all, was convicted not of extortion or murder, but tax evasion,” said Melanie Sloan, executive director of the group, which a McDonnell spokesman dismissed as pro-Democrat.

Williams buys a $6,500 Rolex.
Aug. 29, 2011 McDonnell aides learn the governor is slated to attend an Anatabloc launch event at the mansion and discuss their concerns over email.
Aug. 30, 2011 Despite aides’ concerns, the event goes on. The first lady hosts, and the governor attends, he has said, to recognize the company for research grants to state universities.
Oct. 18, 2011 Online investors advertise that Maureen McDonnell will be a special guest at a dinner event intended to tout the science behind Anatabloc at a Richmond hotel.
Oct. 22, 2011 A similar event is held in Flint, Mich. Virginia State Police logs indicate that members of the executive protection detail were in the city that day.
Jan. 3, 2012 The governor wears a Rolex during a newspaper interview, saying it was a Christmas gift from his wife.
Williams writes a $50,000 check from his trust to MoBo Real Estate Partners, a corporation owned by McDonnell and his sister. He later gives MoBo an additional $20,000. Sources say McDonnell viewed the money as loans to the corporation.
December 2012 Williams gives McDonnell’s eldest daughter, Jeanine McDonnell, a check for $10,000 as a wedding present. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Through Monday, Dustin Pedroia was hitting .308 with 57 RBIs this season.
Nationals right-handed pitcher Ross Ohlendorf is 2-0 with a 2.03 ERA in eight appearances this season. He is scheduled to start Friday against the New York Mets.
Ohlendorf Answers All Calls Nationals have used right-handed pitcher lots of different ways Nationals Pitcher Ross Ohlendorf’s role has been muddled since he arrived in Washington’s clubhouse. He’s started, been called upon for one inning and has been used as a long reliever. In Sunday’s 9-2 loss to the Dodgers, Ohlendorf came into the third inning after starter Jordan Zimmermann gave up seven earned runs in the ﬁrst two. Ohlendorf pitched six innings with six strikeouts and gave up just two
earned runs. Needing a pitcher for Friday’s doubleheader against the Mets, the Nationals tabbed Ohlendorf to start. In his lone start of the season, Ohlendorf pitched six innings and gave up only one earned run in a 5-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on June 12. With Dan Haren (4-11, 5.79 ERA) performing poorly all season and Ross Detwiler battling injuries and struggles of his own, this could wind up being an opportunity for Ohlendorf to earn a spot as a starter in the rotation. The 30-year-old right-hander was once in Pittsburgh’s starting rotation. In 2009, he was the only Pirates starter to ﬁnish the season
On Deck Today F. Liriano 9-4, 2.44 ERA
7:05 P.M. MASN
S. Strasburg 5-7, 2.97 ERA
with a winning record, albeit at 11-10. He’s also in the MLB record books as one of 50 pitchers to strike out three batters with nine pitches in one inning — achieving this feat with the Pirates in a 2009 game against the Cardinals. Ohlendorf has had shoulder problems in the past, but he said he’s felt ﬁne this season. His improved health has led to better productivity when he’s asked to pitch. Against the Dodgers, one of Ohlendorf’s pitches was clocked
at 97 mph. Ohlendorf said it was the ﬁrst time in four years he was able to reach that kind of velocity. “When you’re throwing harder you do have a little more margin for error,” Ohlendorf said. “It makes your changeup better if your fastball is hard. It’s nice to have. But command is really important. When I was throwing harder the ﬁrst couple of innings, I left a couple of balls that were a little too hittable.” Manager Davey Johnson made the decision to go with Ohlendorf on Friday immediately after his relief outing on Sunday. “That was an outstanding effort,” Johnson said. “It was a good tuneup.” JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

Pedroia, Red Sox Near Deal Baseball All-Star second baseman Dustin Pedroia is close to a contract that could keep him with the Boston Red Sox for his entire big league career. A person with knowledge of the talks said Tuesday that Pedroia is in the process of agreeing to a deal adding $100 million over seven seasons through 2021. Pedroia is making $10 million this year and is guaranteed the same amount in 2014 as part of a $40.5 million, six-year contract that started in 2009. That deal includes an $11 million club option for 2015 with a $500,000 buyout. The 5-foot-8, 165-pound sparkplug was the AL Rookie of the Year in 2007 and AL MVP in 2008. The deal would expire after he turns 38. HOWARD ULMAN (AP)

U.S. Squad Awaits Najar, Honduras Former United player faces the Americans in Gold Cup semis Soccer Andy Najar left the D.C. area with visions of Europe’s grand stage and the goal of gaining a stronger foothold with the Honduras national team. He returned triumphantly last weekend, and now he has his sights set on taking down the U.S. national team. 7 P.M. Today Fox Soccer
The former D.C. United academy and Edison High School (Alexandria) product scored his ﬁrst international goal for Honduras in a 1-0 Gold Cup quarterﬁnal victory over Costa Rica at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Sunday. “It’s a wonderful feeling to come back and score at home,” Najar said through a translator. “I haven’t had any opportunities before. Luckily I was able to have this opportunity.” The 20-year-old said his entire family, including his pregnant wife and their daughter, was present
for his landmark achievement, in which he sliced into the center of the box to meet Alexander Lopez’s cross for a game-deciding header in the 49th minute. The speedy Najar, who now plays for Belgian champion Anderlecht following a winter transfer from D.C. United, will face his toughest challenge of the Gold Cup against the United States tonight at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. The Americans have won a team-record nine straight games across all competitions, scoring at least four goals in three of their four Gold Cup games. Landon Donovan’s three goals and six assists have paved the way for a team looking for its ﬁrst competition triumph since the 2007 Gold Cup. Honduras, meanwhile, has gone 3-1-0 and posted three shutouts as it looks to reach its ﬁrst ﬁnal since 1991. The winner of today’s match will face Mexico or Panama in Chicago on Sunday. “It’s going to be a difficult game,” Najar said. “The U.S. won [Sunday] with a pretty big advantage. We know it’s going to be a hard game, but we hope to keep working hard, and hopefully things will keep working our way.” AVI CREDITOR (FOR E XPRESS)

What Braun’s Ban Means Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun this week accepted a 65-game suspension from baseball and admitted, “I am not perfect. I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions.” The 2011 National League MVP was suspended without pay for the rest of the season and the postseason, the start of sanctions involving players reportedly tied to Biogenesis, a now-shuttered Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs. Here’s a closer look at the issues and implications of MLB’s suspension of Braun. (AP) Why 65 games? A person familiar with the deal, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized, said 50 games of the penalty were connected to Biogenesis. The additional 15 games stemmed from Braun’s actions during the grievance that overturned his positive test for testosterone from October 2011.
What would have happened if Braun had not agreed to the ban? MLB probably would have suspended him for a longer period, and Braun would have asked the union to file a grievance that would have been decided by an arbitrator, likely after the season.
How much does this cost him?
Does he keep his NL MVP?
It would appear a little more than $3 million. Braun is making $8.5 million, and baseball’s drug agreement says the number of days of lost pay “shall equal the number of games (excluding postseason games) for which he is suspended.” He is signed to Milwaukee through 2020, and his salary increases to $10 million next year — meaning a 65-game suspension in 2014 would have cost him $3,551,913.
Yes. The Baseball Writers’ Association of America voted Braun the winner ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Matt Kemp in 2011. “The decision was already made. He won it,” Jack O’Connell, the BBWAA’s secretarytreasurer, said in an email Monday.
Are there more players at risk of getting suspended? More than a dozen players have been linked in media reports to Biogenesis, among them Braun, the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez, Texas’ Nelson Cruz, Detroit’s Jhonny Peralta, Oakland’s Bartolo Colon, Toronto’s Melky Cabrera and Seattle’s Jesus Montero.
What’s A-Rod’s status? He remains on the New York Yankees’ disabled list following hip surgery in January. It isn’t clear whether MLB will attempt to suspend him before he can come off the DL. AP/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION

Girl Groups Gone Wild TOMO MUSCIONICO (RCA RECORDS/AP)
Move over, boy bands. These groups of the female persuasion are gaining big buzz Music I’ll tell you what you want, what you really, really want: girl groups. Even if you don’t want them — they’re back on the scene. A new batch of pop tarts are ready to dominate the charts and ﬁll a void since such best-selling groups as Destiny’s Child, TLC and the Spice Girls aren’t dropping songs as fast as music fans want them. Here are four girl groups who are rivaling One Direction and The Wanted for your attention:
Little Mix Call them the female One Direction. Seriously. Like 1D, Little Mix was formed on the U.K.’s “The X Factor,” where the girls won the competition in 2011 (1D placed third in 2010). The group is signed to the same U.S. label as the popular boy band, and
Don’t call them The Pussycat Dolls: The girl group has a new identity as G.R.L.
the girls are following the boys’ chart-topping path: Their debut, “DNA,” splashed at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart last month. Little Mix is working on a second album it will release this year — 1D’s formula last year. “We always look at One Direction as opening the gates for us,” said member Perrie Edwards, who is dating 1D’s Zayn Malik. “They work really hard, and we just want to follow in their footsteps.” Little Mix’s debut album features a track with a girl group vet: T-Boz of TLC co-wrote and sings
on “Red Planet.” “We were massive fans of TLC growing up, and we love all of those girl groups from back in the day,” member Jesy Nelson said.
G.R.L. The Pussycat Dolls got a makeover. G.R.L. was originally the new lineup of The Pussycat Dolls, but the group decided to establish a new identity after signing to Grammy-nominated producer Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records. “We decided that once all ﬁve of us came together and brought our different personalities and we got involved with Dr. Luke, it became something completely different from The Pussycat Dolls,” member Paula Van Oppen said. The ﬁvesome auditioned for Dr. Luke and Max Martin, who have crafted international hits for such female singers as Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Britney Spears, Kelly Clark-
son and Pink. The group is working on its debut album and released its ﬁrst single, “Vacation,” last month.
Fifth Harmony The five-piece Fifth Harmony is prepping for its international takeover by watching one of girl groups’ ultimate alums: Beyonce. “We’re really, like, big fans of Destiny’s Child,” said Ally Brooke, as her bandmates screamed in the background. “In fact, we went to see Beyonce last night.” Like Little Mix, Fifth Harmony formed on “The X Factor” — but the U.S. version — where it placed third last year. “We didn’t know what we to expect because none of us had
known each other before,” Brooke said. “It’s just amazing how we all instantly bonded and connected.” The group recently released its debut single, the punchy pop jam “Miss Movin’ On.” The girls said their album will feature pop tracks similar to it but will also include “a throwback vibe.”
The Lylas Moms know best. For The Lylas, the sisters of Bruno Mars, it was their mother who introduced the girls to female singers they most look up to. “Our mom was an amazing vocalist, and she introduced us to all the female R&B powerhouses, so we grew up listening to the Supremes, Aretha Franklin, En Vogue, the girl groups back in the day,” Tiara Hernandez said. Their mother, Bernadette Hernandez, died last month at age 55. The girls are ﬁ lming a reality series for WEtv to debut in the fall, when they also plan to release music. Presley Hernandez calls being in a group with siblings “a nightmare!” She’s kidding. Sort of. “It’s really fun, but at the same time you can deﬁnitely see how hard it is for girl groups,” she said. “The beauty of being sisters is there is no escaping each other. We have to work it out no matter what happens.” MESFIN FEK ADU (AP) At left, four sisters of singer Bruno Mars make up the girl band The Lylas.

It took a powerful script to persuade Octavia Spencer to join the ‘Fruitvale’ cast
“I now want to take roles that challenge me and stretch me as an actor. So this was a beautiful story.” — OC TAV IA SPENCER, BELOW
Film Octavia Spencer almost passed on one of the most acclaimed movies of the year so far — “Fruitvale Station.” The ﬁlm, now in theaters, tells the true story of Oscar Grant, an unarmed black man fatally shot by a white police ofﬁcer in an Oakland, Calif., train station early on New Year’s Day, 2009. Video of the shooting circulated widely on social networks, and a snippet of it is shown in “Fruitvale’s” opening minutes. It’s that footage that made Spencer initially decline the pivotal role of Grant’s mother. “In seeing the video, I said the only thing that I could offer this role is anger. And I think this situation requires much more than that because it already has a potential to be explosive,” Spencer said. But she read the script — which chronicles Grant’s last day — and was moved. “It restored Oscar’s humanity in a way that the trial, and all of the recriminations around it, had basically taken from him,” Spencer said. “So I wanted to be a part of it for
RON KOEBERER (THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY/AP)
my nephews … all the young men of color whose lives sometimes feel more expendable in a way.” “Fruitvale Station,” which stars Michael B. Jordan as Grant and was helmed by ﬁrst-time director Ryan Coogler, has drawn critical praise and prompted comparisons to the
racially charged death of another young black male, Trayvon Martin. “Fruitvale” is also generating early Oscar buzz. It is Spencer’s ﬁrst high-proﬁle role since her Academy Award-winning turn as a feisty maid in the racial dramedy “The Help.” The
actress, who was virtually unknown before starring in that blockbuster, admits that the success of that performance changed the way she considers future roles. “Before, you just take what you need to do to survive,” Spencer said. “I now want to take roles that challenge me and stretch me as an actor. So this was a beautiful story.” But Spencer was more than just a hired actor on “Fruitvale”; she was also one of its producers, along with Oscar-winning actor Forest Whitaker. Coogler said in some ways, she was like the ﬁlm’s fairy godmother. “While we were shooting, some money fell out, and we were in a lot of trouble,” he said. “She really rolled up her sleeves, and went around to all her friends as a producer to help make sure the movie continued to get made.” Spencer said she’s gratiﬁed by the positive response to “Fruitvale” and by having another strong role in which to shine — a longstanding problem for African-American actors. “If you wait around for other people to bring you interesting things, you won’t discover the riches of the world. So I like it,” she said. “I like being able to go out there and ﬁnd things. And having jewels like ‘Fruitvale Station’ ﬁnd me.” NEKESA MUMBI MOODY (AP)

He’s Got Answers The six-part comedy/reality/ debunking series “Joe Rogan Questions Everything” (10 p.m., Syfy) launches tonight, based on Rogan’s popular podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience.” An amusing mix of blunt and goofy, “Rogan” pursues absurd conspiracy theories and urban legends with all the mock-seriousness they deserve.

Thinking of heading to Rehoboth Beach, Del., with your dogs? Check these listings first:
Dog-friendly accommodations: Visit http://bit.ly/oIIyiT to find out where Fido is welcome. Bed, Breakfast and Benji: Bewitched & Bedazzled B&B features a gated deck out back so you can relax with your dogs. Summer rates range from $175 to $375 a night depending on season. bewitchedbnb .com or 302-226-3900. What’s allowed: Go to cityofrehoboth.com for information on beach and boardwalk rules, such as where/when dogs are allowed. (AP)
A pair of pugs get a taste of Kohr Bros. Frozen Custard in Rehoboth Beach, Del.
Dog Days Of Summer Rehoboth Beach, Del., is a fun destination for you and your pups Excursions When you’re looking to get a dog, experts tell you to find one that fits your lifestyle. And when you take your dogs on vacation, you need to find a vacation that fits the dogs. That’s why, for about a dozen years now, my husband and I have spent a weekend or two each summer in Rehoboth Beach, Del. We go back again and again, in large part because our dogs like it. And what’s funny is, we like Rehoboth even though dogs are not allowed on the beach — or even
the boardwalk — between May 1 and Sept. 30. But we don’t go there for swimming or sunbathing. Fortunately, our dogs have the same taste in leisure as we do. They’re pugs, so they don’t like the water. The ocean is just a pleasant backdrop for activities all four of us enjoy: shopping and eating out. Rehoboth is the perfect place for this, a city of restaurants and shops extending out from the boardwalk that has lots of dog-friendly amenities. Many shops put out water for dogs and there are a number of restaurants that allow your dogs to sit with you at outdoor tables. In between meals and snacks, we stroll up and down Rehoboth Avenue and the side streets. Some of the shops will let you bring your
Dogs and Don’ts If your dogs do want to go to the beach in Rehoboth, there’s a patchwork of complicated rules regarding times, dates and specific locations in the towns and the state parks, but a close and easy option in Cape Henlopen State Park is Gordons Pond, just a short drive from Rehoboth, where leashed dogs are permitted in certain areas. (AP)
dog inside, and one that doesn’t, Browseabout Bookstore, has an outside window where dog owners can ring the bell and buy a coffee or cold drink, a great convenience for the dog walker whose travel companion is sleeping in. While we don’t care about the beach, we’ve often talked about going during a month when dogs are allowed on the boardwalk. But our favorite croissant place is open only in tourist season. Someday we’ll ﬁgure out if there’s a perfect weekend when those two seasons overlap. So far, the croissants have always won out, and I think all four of us agree that’s the right decision. LINDA LOMBARDI (AP)

“If the royal baby cries, it means 6 more weeks of heat waves.” — @JOSHPETRI has a little fun likening the frenzy surrounding Prince William and Kate’s new bundle of joy, born Monday, to America’s fascination with Punxsutawney Phil. If the groundhog in Pennsylvania sees his shadow, it means six more weeks of winter.
“Not in the mood for wine tonight, but still want to feel real classy? Then boy, do we have a trend for you!” — SAMANTHA GROSSMAN AT TIME.COM reports on an
uptick in the popularity of a water sommelier, because “ordering plain old tap water is so passe.” Los Angeles restaurant Ray’s and Stark boasts a menu that features 20 different types of water from 10 countries, including Badoit from France and Voss from Norway.
“Uh, sorry KTVU, you can’t ‘cancel the internet.’ ” — COMMENTER BLOO AT WIRED.COM
reacts after reading that the San Francisco TV news station is trying to delete all of the online videos that show its reporter reading fake — and racially insensitive — names for the pilots involved in the recent Asiana airline crash. The station has been issuing takedown notices to YouTube. Some of the video links lead to the message: “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by KTVU.”

— COMMENTER HUGHBERT JANUS AT DEADLINE.COM responds to news
that Sacha Baron Cohen is no longer interested in playing Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic of the Queen frontman. Cohen reportedly wanted a gritty R-rated tell-all about the gay singer, while surviving members of Queen are seeking more of a PG-rated ﬁlm.
“But what about the first rule of Fight Club?!” — COMMENTER TYLER GOLD AT THEVERGE.COM reacts after read-
ing that Chuck Palahniuk is working on a graphic-novel sequel to his book “Fight Club,” which was made into a 1999 ﬁlm starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton. According to Palahniuk’s website, it will likely be a series of books that update the story 10 years after “the seeming end of Tyler Durden” and could be released before 2015.

PAR SCORE 145-155, BEST SCORE 226
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may receive assistance from someone who isn’t used to offering it, but in your case, he or she is willing to make an exception. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You can appreciate what another tells you even though you may not understand it completely. You’ll be up to speed very soon. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You may be eager for something of a getaway at this time, but you may be prevented — for now — by a family responsibility. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) If at first you can’t do what you want because it doesn’t suit someone else, try again after thoroughly explaining your motives. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Financial matters may be more complex than expected. Focus on indicators that you can readily understand — and trust an expert.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your emotions may be quite near the surface all day long. Indeed, you may be vacillating between two extremes at this time. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Physical difficulties can be overcome, but you’re going to have to make a certain sacrifice in the process. It’s worth it! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You’ve been listening to someone else’s predictions long enough, and today, you’ll want to go about your business regardless.

Today: A shower or thunderstorm in spots this morning. Partly cloudy tonight.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Your ducks are in a row, and today, you can really get things moving — but do you really know where you’re going to end up? TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You and a friend will want to perform a thorough debriefing after events that are not really a part of the plan. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You can improve the way you do things without taking on any more responsibility. You’re multitasking enough for several people! CANCER (June 21-July 22) You can expect the technical assistance you have requested to give you more than you had bargained for — and to pay off in a surprising way.
