Mitch McConnell, left, vows that another shutdown won’t happen, but Ted Cruz, below, has refused to rule it out.
Washington Leaders from both parties insist a sequel to the government shutdown must be avoided although a plan to dodge it is still elusive. “There’ll not be another government shutdown, you can count on that,” said Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Added Treasury Secretary Jack Lew: “This can never happen again.” The 16-day partial shutdown ended last week when lawmakers approved a budget that keeps the lights on through Jan. 15 and lets the Treasury continue to pay its bills through Feb. 7. A group of House and Senate lawmakers has until Dec. 13 to produce a spending deal to stave off another shutdown and possible default in early 2014. That’s not to say there is a solution at hand. No one is rushing forward with alternatives to a potential repeat of the gridlock, and its chief architect, Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, is urging one. “I will continue to do anything I can to stop the train wreck that is Obamacare,” Cruz said. Whatever the future of the law, McConnell vowed he would not permit another government shutdown. “I t hink we have now f ully

acquainted our new members with what a losing strategy that is,” McConnell said in an interview with The Hill newspaper. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, said: “I am very conﬁdent the American people will not stand for another repetition of this disaster.” A standoff between President Barack Obama and a group of Republicans over defunding the nation’s health-care overhaul led to the partial shutdown. Lawmakers also pushed the country to the edge of economic default by threatening the Treasury Department’s authority to continue borrowing the money needed to pay the nation’s bills. “There were really no winners,” said Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va. “I mean, our country took an economic hit.” But with no solution currently in sight, the whole situation could be repeated — combined with economic consequences — early next year, perhaps with more severe consequences.” PHILIP ELLIOT T (AP)

Brain Cleans Up During Sleep Study: Flushing out of cells’ toxic waste goes into overdrive Washington While we are asleep, our bodies may be resting, but our brains are busy taking out the trash. A new study has found that the cleanup system in the brain, responsible for ﬂushing out toxic waste products that cells produce with daily use, goes into overdrive in mice that are asleep. The cells even shrink in size to make for easier cleaning of the spaces around them. Scientists say this nightly self-
clean by the brain provides a compelling biological reason for the restorative power of sleep. “Sleep puts the brain in another state where we clean out all the byproducts of activity during the daytime,” said study author and University of Rochester neurosurgeon Maiken Nedergaard. Those byproducts include beta-amyloid protein, clumps of which form plaques found in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. Staying up all night could prevent the brain from getting rid of these toxins as efﬁciently, and explain why sleep deprivation has such strong and immediate consequences. Too little sleep causes men-
Meanwhile ... An MRI diagnostic test for the brain cleanup, called glymphatic clearance, is in the works by neurosurgeon Maiken Nedergaard and her colleagues. She believes that a drug could be developed to replicate the flushing of toxins, possibly by mimicking the sleep-wake cycle. (T WP)
tal fog, crankiness and increased risks of migraine and seizure. Rats deprived of all sleep die within weeks. New York University cell biologist and Alzheimer’s specialist Ralph A. Nixon, who was not
involved in the study, said the ﬁndings could be of great interest to the Alzheimer’s research community. For instance, the overproduction of beta-amyloid could be linked to the development of the disease, but he said these new ﬁndings hint that the lack of clearing it out might be the bigger problem. Other neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, are also associated with a backup of too much cell waste in the brain. “Clearance mechanisms may be very relevant to keeping these proteins at a level that isn’t disease-causing,” Nixon said.

Pa., N.J. Spotlight Gay Marriage Advocates across the neighboring states push for legalization Harrisburg, Pa.
Run for Your Lives! Thousands of miles from Spain, daredevils in red scarves dodged 18 bulls at a Georgia horse park to get a taste of the running of the bulls.

The next stop is Dec. 7 in Baytown, Texas. (AP)
Pennsylvania and New Jersey are on tracks that could lead to the Northeast being the first full region in the country to legalize gay marriage — but the routes are hardly parallel and the horsepower anything but equal. A flurry of recent court decisions has gay couples in New Jersey, where same-sex marriage has long been debated, hurrying to make wedding plans for when they can
legally marry starting today — even as Republican Gov. Chris Christie awaits a decision on his appeal. Across the Delaware River in Pennsylvania, advocates are pecking away at a 1996 gay-marriage ban by introducing bills in the legislature, defiantly issuing marriage licenses in localities and taking the issue to court — with few people conceding the tactics will work anytime soon in a big state with a socially conservative spine. “I don’t think it is going to happen next year. ... It’s going to take leadership from the top,” said state Rep. Mike Fleck, an openly gay Republican who represents a rural, conservative district in Hunting-
Meanwhile ... Gay-marriage bans are being contested in multiple states’ courts and legislatures, while others are more narrowly focused. A lesbian couple who legally wed in Massachusetts and moved to Pennsylvania have sued to have their marriage recognized in their new home state. A federal judge ordered Ohio to recognize the out-of-state marriages of two gay couples on Ohio death certificates. And Oregon officials have declared that the state will recognize samesex marriages of couples who wed in other states or countries. (AP)
don County. The different approaches — and levels of success — in the two neighboring states illustrate the many ways the effort to legalize same-sex marriage is playing out nationally in the months after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down parts of a federal law that restricted the rights of gay couples. If New Jersey and Pennsylvania legalize same-sex marriage, it would be law across a nine-state region that is home to more than 55 million people, or nearly a ﬁfth of the nation’s population. Just below the Northeast, Maryland, Delaware and D.C., also allow gay marriage. PETER JACKSON (AP)

Beirut A n international conference aimed at ending Syria’s civil war is planned for Nov. 23, the head of the Arab League said Sunday, although the U.N. envoy to Syria said the date has yet to be finalized and that peace talks will not be held “without a credible opposition.” For months, the United States and Russia have been working to bring the Damascus government and Syria’s divided opposition to Geneva to discuss a political solution to the civil war, but the meeting has been repeatedly postponed. Even now, it remains unclear whether either side is really willing to negotiate while the conﬂict, now in its third year, remains
Meanwhile ... He’s practically a one man band, but Rami Abdul-Rahman’s influence extends far beyond his modest home in Coventry, England. The 42-year-old operates the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights — and a review of recent media coverage suggests its running tally of killings and clashes is the most frequently cited individual source of information on Syria’s civil war for the world’s leading news organizations. AbdulRahman says he relies on four unnamed activists in Syria and a wider network of monitors to verify clashes and killings. But opponents say Abdul-Rahman is in cahoots with either the opposition forces or the Syrian regime. (AP)
deadlocked. The main Western-backed opposition umbrella group, the Syrian National Coalition, is scheduled to meet Nov. 1 to decide whether to attend the proposed Geneva conference. One of the most prominent factions within the Coalition, the Syrian National Council, has said
it has no faith in such talks and won’t attend. Many rebel fighters on the ground ﬂatly refuse to negotiate with the regime. The government, meanwhile, has refused to talk with the armed opposition. Speaking at Arab League headquarters in Cairo, League chief Nabil Elaraby said the Geneva con-
ference would be held on Nov. 23. He added that “many difﬁculties” face the proposed peace talks, but stressed that “it’s time that the killings and the bloodshed stopped.” The Arab League-U.N. envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, struck a more cautious tone and emphasized that the timing of the conference is not yet set.

Now in its third year, Syria’s conﬂict has killed more than 100,000 people, devastated the nation’s economy and forced some 2 million Syrians to seek refuge abroad.

Habib, who was wanted by authorities for escaping from prison, received a 15-year sentence in absentia for his participation in the pro-democracy uprising and was found beaten and shot dead early Saturday. Clashes erupted after the politically charged funeral between anti-government mourners and riot police.

In September 2012, Putin flew on a motorized hang glider as part of a project to teach the endangered birds who were raised in captivity to later follow the aircraft on their migration south to Central Asia. The white bird will spend the winter in a wildlife reserve. (AP)

Argentines Worry About Pesticides’ Side Effects Buenos Aires, Argentina Argentine farmworker Fabian Tomasi was never trained to handle pesticides. His job was to keep the crop-dusters flying by filling their tanks as quickly as possible, although it often meant getting drenched in poison. Now, at 47, he’s a living skeleton. American biotechnology has turned Argentina into the world’s third-largest soybean producer, but the chemicals powering the boom are poorly controlled and used in ways that were never anticipated by regulatory science, if not speciﬁcally banned by law. The Associated Press documented dozens of cases around the country where poisons are applied in ways unanticipated by regulatory science or speciﬁcally banned by existing law. The spray drifts into homes and settles over water sources; farmworkers mix poisons with no protective gear; villagers store water in pesticide containers that should have been destroyed.
Now doctors are warning that uncontrolled pesticide applications could be the cause of growing health problems among the 12 million people who live in the nation’s vast farm belt. In Chaco, birth defects quadrupled in the decade after biotechnology expanded farming in Argentina. In neighboring Santa Fe, cancer rates are two to four times higher than the national average. “We’ve gone from a pretty healthy population to one with a high rate of cancer, birth defects, and illnesses seldom seen before,” says Dr. Medardo Avila Vazquez, who cofounded Doctors of Fumigated Towns. Argentina’s agriculture secretary dismisses a growing call for reform as an “emotional” response from people who misunderstand the impact of agrochemicals. “We have to defend our model,” he said at a conference this year where he promised new guidelines for spraying the chemicals.

World Canberra, Australia Firefighters battling some of the most destructive wildfires to ever strike Australia’s most populous state were focusing on a major blaze Sunday near Lithgow that stretched along a 190-mile front. Authorities warned that high temperatures and winds were likely to maintain heightened ﬁre danger for days in New South Wales state. The ﬁres have killed one man,
destroyed 208 homes and damaged another 122 since Thursday, the Rural Fire Service said. Fireﬁghters have taken advantage of milder conditions in recent days to reduce the number of ﬁres threatening towns around Sydney from more than 100 on Thursday night to 61 on Sunday, Rural Fire Service spokesman Matt Sun said. Fifteen of these ﬁres continued to burn out of control, including the blaze near Lithgow, west of Syd-
ney, which was given the highest danger ranking by the ﬁre service. Authorities expect that blaze will continue to burn for days. Sun said temperatures in the fire zone on Sunday exceeded 77 degrees Fahrenheit, with winds reaching 12 miles per hour and humidity dropping to 30 percent. “It’s not as dire as it could be, but it’s certainly challenging work for ﬁreﬁghters,” Sun said. The Defense Department,

Wildﬁres are common in Australia, though they don’t tend to pop up in large numbers until the summer. This year’s unusually dry winter and hotter than average spring have led to perfect ﬁre conditions. ROD McGUIRK (AP)

An Alternative to the Tedious Drive In? BILL O’LEARY (THE WASHINGTON POST)
62-year-old cycles and takes Metro for his 35-mile commute Washington On most mornings, Ken Schantz starts his commute at 4:20 a.m. It takes him two hours 40 minutes to travel 35 miles from his home near Mount Vernon to his office in Rockville. He loves every minute of it. That’s because he leaves his car at home. Schantz, 62, travels by bike and sometimes rail or bus. He knows driving would cut his commute time by more than half, but what fun would that be?
Ken Schantz travels 35 miles a day each way by bike and rail to and from Rockville.
“I am the happiest when I’m out there turning the pedals,” he said. Schantz joins a growing number of workers who have abandoned their cars in favor of bus, rail and bike for their daily commutes.
Solo drivers still dominate the ranks of D.C. area commuters, but according to an analysis by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, the number of regular bike commuters in the D.C.

E x p er t s say t hat c yc l i ng undoubtedly will continue to grow in D.C., Arlington County, Va., and other close-in areas, but how much growth there will be in suburban, auto-dependent neighborhoods such as Schantz’s remains to be seen. It’s one thing to get around without a car in D.C. — a relatively compact 68.3 square miles. But navigating the region’s far-ﬂung suburbs — never mind crossing through two counties — offers an entirely different challenge.

Rich Anderson, a Republican who represents 80,000 residents of Prince William County in the Virginia legislature, knocks on doors seven days a week. Knock-knock: “I’m fed up with all of you,” says Tony Smathers, a retired research physicist at the Naval Research Lab. Knock-knock: “It must really suck to be a Republican right now,” says a federal worker who, truth be told, is a Republican herself. These voters will help choose a new governor in two weeks, and they are gearing up to send a message about the most recent horror show in Washington. At many doors, voters tell Anderson that they plan to hold his party and its candidate for governor, Ken Cuccinelli, accountable for the D.C. follies. Anderson winces and explains that Virginia does business differently from the jokers in Washington. At some doors, there’s a grudging nod, maybe even a thin smile. But at many, this genial state delegate is the convenient guy to vent at. Thirty-ﬁve miles from downtown D.C., Anderson’s turf includes Virginia’s most reliable political barometer: the Coles Magisterial District, which voted for the winning candidate, no matter his party or philosophy, in a dozen statewide elections in a row. People here voted for Barack Obama, twice, for George W. Bush, twice, for gubernatorial candidates Bob McDonnell, Timothy Kaine, Mark Warner and James Gilmore, and for Senate candidates Kaine, James Webb, Mark Warner and John Warner. So the men who want to be governor — Cuccinelli, the state attorney general, and his opponent, Terry McAuliffe, the former Democratic National Committee chairman — need to know: What

Rich Anderson talks to Terri Hoerer, who is so fed up with the gubernatorial candidates she plans to vote for the independent — whose name she couldn’t recall.
“We’re looking at the governor’s race, and we’re going ‘Yuck! What? Those are the choices?’ ” — SHEIL A MITCHELL , A RESIDENT OF THE COLES DISTRICT
are they thinking in Coles? Answer: They cannot stand you. In interviews with more than 40 voters in Prince William’s Coles District, one — one — expressed actual enthusiasm for either candidate. What unites Coles residents now is their desire to send a message that the elected representatives in Washington don’t represent them. “We will vote, but we will cringe,” says Sheila Mitchell. Four years ago, when McAuliffe ﬁrst ran for governor, Mitchell looked him over. “I thought, ‘God, he doesn’t look like you can trust him,’ ” she
says. “Since then, research has shown I don’t think I can trust him. But then I look at Cuccinelli, and it’s, ‘Gosh, you don’t like women much, do you?’ ” As Anderson moved from door to door, reminding constituents that he, too, is on next month’s ballot — running against Democrat Reed Heddleston, a ﬁnancial consultant and retired Air Force colonel — he did hear about the economy. But mostly people wanted to talk about the dysfunction in Washington. At Tony Smathers’ door, Anderson hears an earful about the shutdown and about Cuccinelli’s criticism of a university professor’s research on global warming. Anderson replies: “This is a moderate district, and I’m a moderate guy. I believe when the majority has spoken, the issue is settled. We’ve got to ﬁnd a civil way forward.” Smathers isn’t hearing it. “You’re still one of them,” he says. MARC FISHER (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Backstory Voters in the Coles Magisterial District in Prince William County are people of all walks, living in all kinds of settings. The county is part winding rural byways, part densely packed townhouse clusters, part cookie-cutter estate homes. As more northerners, Asians, Hispanics and blacks have moved into new developments in Coles, the pattern of picking winners has persisted, a reflection of Virginia’s overall shift toward a more ethnically and politically diverse electorate. That change has turned a solidly Republican state into one with two Democrats in the U.S. Senate and two Democrats among the last three governors. (T WP)

From 6 a.m. to midnight daily, the new 50-feet by 24-feet screens at the Verizon Center flash images of D.C.’s sports teams, their sponsors and upcoming events. To some, the new electronic signs hanging from the arena add a sense of vibrancy to the neighborhood, but to others, the ﬂashing billboards have created frustration and exacerbated a two-year-old battle with the Verizon Center. The city approved the signs last year after months of public debate over the request by Washington sports mogul Ted Leonsis (who owns the Wizards, Capitals and other D.C. sports teams) to erect the lighted, animated signs on the Seventh Street NW side of the Verizon Center. Residents and community leaders said they feared the lighted billboards would be intrusive. The D.C. Council, however, unanimously backed the proposal, with some members saying it was necessary to replace outdated billboards in the growing entertainment district. The new signage allows Leonsis’ company, Monumental Sports and Entertainment, which owns and operates the Verizon Center, to generate more advertising revenue, which could lead to $8 million to $10 million in tax revenue for the District, Council member Yvette Alexander wrote last year in a memo to fellow Council members.
But the billboards, which went live last month, are more than a new revenue source, said Randall Boe, Monumental’s executive vice president. They will help make Washington’s sports teams more competitive and create excitement and fan support among visitors and residents. They fit, he said, with what the neighborhood around Verizon Center has become in the last decade.
“It’s like having a giant television set outside my window.” — CATHERINE SICKLE S, WHO LIVES TWO BLOCKS FROM THE ARENA AND HAS A DIRECT VIEW OF THE NEW SCREENS FROM HER PENTHOUSE APARTMENT AT THE LEXINGTON AT MARKET SQUARE
“This has not been a sleepy residential neighborhood,” Boe said. “There is plenty of activity and there is plenty of light and all sorts of stuff and we are a portion of that.” Others don’t agree. “They say this is Washington’s Times Square, but the people that live here don’t feel that way,” said Kevin Wilsey, who has lived in the neighborhood for 17 years. He added about the billboards, “I think people are sort of shocked about how vibrant and in their face it sort of is.” T here w i l l be a n Adv isory Neighborhood Commission meeting tonight about the signs.

An Old-Fashioned Shootout The Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins moved the ball in the second half as if it were a game of 7-on-7, with Josh McCown shaking off two years of regular-season inactivity while trying to keep pace with Robert Griffin III. It was one of those games where the last team that scores comes away the winner. It turned out to be the Redskins, who got a third touchdown from Roy Helu Jr. with 45 seconds to play Sunday for a 45-41 win. The Redskins (2-4) have both of their wins against backup quarterbacks. This time is was McCown, who entered in the second quarter after Jay Cutler left with a groin injury. (AP) Best Halftime Score 24-17? The Redskins leading? At halftime? Weird. Hadn’t happened yet this season.
Best Penalty Calls
Brandon Meriweather hit Alshon Jeffery in the head and earned himself a 15-yard penalty. I know the fans booed, but to me, it looked like Meriweather — who has a history of helmet-to-helmet hits — hit Jeffery on the head with his head. Later, Meriweather earned another 15-yarder for launching himself into Brandon Marshall’s head. It’s just not how you’re supposed to hit guys.

NFL football. Eight lead changes, 86 points, a McCown-RGIII shootout, a last-minute go-ahead score? That’s the stuff, NFL. Love you.
Watching the same special teams meltdowns three weeks in a row. I mean, Devin Hester hadn’t returned a punt for a touchdown in 29 games, and then he popped off an 81-yarder Sunday when the Redskins were nursing a seven-point lead and facing a backup quarterback. That’s three weeks in a row the Redskins special teams have given up a touchdown, and two weeks in a row they’ve given up a punt return for a score. That hadn’t happened since 1952.
Best Goal Line Runner Wait, is that Roy Helu Jr.? Alfred Morris was amazing in the red zone a year ago, scoring 13 touchdowns. But Helu used both his speed and his power to get into the end zone three times on Sunday, once from 14 yards, once from 3 yards and once from 2 yards. It was his first career multi-touchdown game, and it gave him four touchdowns on the year. Morris has three.
Best Defense What’s defense?
Brian Orakpo, who probably would have been about 16th on my list of guesses in this category, got the defense in the end zone, returning the ball 29 yards for his first career touchdown on his first career interception.
Best Scoring Unit JENNIFER MILBRETT (FOR EXPRESS)
Robert Griffin III loves to cut back inside near the sidelines to gain maybe one or two extra yards while 280-pound men hurl their bodies at him.
Redskins running back Roy Helu Jr. rushed for 41 yards and scored three touchdowns on just 11 carries in Sunday’s win over the Chicago Bears.

Operation Blessing Feeds A Small Army Operation Blessing has been partnering with the food pantry that helped George and Becca for more than seven years, currently reaching around 1,500 families every month. Across the nation, Operation Blessing’s Hunger Strike Force trucks deliver an average of 2 million pounds of food and product to a network of more than 120 community-based partners in dozens of cities including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Washington, Tampa, Nashville, Asheville, Buffalo and many more.
When George suddenly lost his sales job due to economic downturn, it was a shock to his family. And with three young children to feed, it wasn’t long before he and his wife Becca found themselves unable to pay their bills and put food on the table. Thankfully, George and Becca turned to an Operation Blessing-supported food pantry near their home for help with groceries and other household items. The food supplies were enough to ensure that their children wouldn’t go hungry. “Your first thought is always, ‘I’ll go without before I let my kids go without’,” Becca said. “So knowing that they were taken care of and that they had the things they needed makes you sleep better at night. It was a relief to know that we had Operation Blessing there to help us when we were in the trenches.” To help provide for his family long term however, George had a plan to get back into the trenches—this time with the U.S. Army. George entered the Army and was soon deployed to Afghanistan. With his steady income, Becca and the kids no longer need help from Operation Blessing or the local food pantry, but they still go there regularly— now volunteering to serve others in need.
The products are then distributed by the partner organizations to roughly 4,400 local food pantries, where it is given to families in need—like that of George and Becca.
George and Becca turned to an Operation Blessingsupported food pantry for groceries when they needed help the most.
“Becca and her family just had some struggles in their lives for a period of time,” said Gary Bellis who directs the food pantry. “And the beauty of this is we were able to help them until they could get back on their feet, and so you see that full circle where we gave them a hand up and now they’re giving back.” “Thanks just doesn’t even cover it,” Becca said. “It kind of seems like such a small word to say because it’s amazing the lives that are touched and changed through Operation Blessing.”
Since its inception, Operation Blessing International has distributed 1.3 billion pounds of food and relief aid, supplemented over 865 million meals, and transported some 35,000 truckloads that have driven over 28 million miles.

A Brief History of the CFC The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) was established in 1961 by an Executive Order signed by President John F. Kennedy. Since that time, annual drives are held each September to December, providing federal employees the opportunity to pledge donations for the coming year. Participation in the campaign has grown and changed a great deal since its early days. This timeline illustrates a few milestones in the evolution of the CFC.

Carter Rallies Support for Combined Federal Campaign at DOD’s Kickoff Event In response to uncertain financial times, Deputy Defense Secretary Ash Carter today announced more realistic contribution goals for the Combined Federal Campaign charity drive and expressed confidence that Defense Department employees still will find it in their hearts to contribute. During a CFC kickoff event in the Pentagon courtyard, Carter noted that last fiscal year’s DOD national capital region contributions raised more than $15.2 million, an average gift of about $515 per participant, Carter said. “You’re people whose life is filled by the opportunity to serve the rest of humanity, and this is just an extension of what you do every day,” he said. Carter acknowledged the difficulty of asking DOD employees for contributions in the wake of recent furlough and sequestration woes. But he dared to ask the question, he added, with confidence in the answer based on
the fabric of the DOD family. “You … wake up every morning … come to work and give to our country and the wider world in the most important way you can … [by providing] security,” Carter said. “Security is like oxygen: if you have it, you don’t pay any attention, but if you don’t have it, it’s all you can think about.” The CFC enables military and federal government employees to contribute to any of more than 5,000 charities – organizations that not only help veterans and their families, but feed the homeless, research cutting-edge medical technology, provide global humanitarian assistance and even protect animal rights. Carter also noted that DOD employees account for about a quarter of all donations the CFC receives.
Deputy Defense Secretary Ash Carter hosts a kickoff ceremony for the Combined Federal Campaign, a workplace effort to raise money for charities, at the Pentagon, Sept. 5, 2013.
“It’s an American tradition to give. … It’s an area where we stand out,” Carter said. “You have an opportunity here
personally, as well as professionally, to reflect your values of service, sacrifice and duty to others.”

Civil War Trust Preserves America’s Civil War Battleﬁelds With Help of CFC “Our Civil War battlefields are living textbooks available and invaluable forever to future generations. As such, they must be preserved, protected and cherished.” – Gen. Colin L. Powell USA (RET.)
Every high school history textbook in America tells the story of the Battle of Gettysburg — the bloodiest battle of the Civil War and, arguably, the turning point of the conflict. Few events in the history of our nation have received the measure of academic study and public interest that Gettysburg has enjoyed. And, yet, what happened over three days in July 1863 is only part of the story of this remarkable battlefield and park. The park you see today was not instantly set aside as a monument to the bravery of American soldiers; it was assembled piecemeal, acre by acre and one iconic landmark at a time. That process began almost as soon as the battle ended and continues up to the present. This

work has been undertaken by local residents, by the veterans who survived the horrors of battle, by the federal and state governments and by individual private citizens. Today, the Civil War Trust is the only national organization committed to educating the public about the war’s legacy and the fundamental conflicts
that sparked it, by protecting the final tangible links to this defining moment in our history — the battlefields where the conflict was decided. During the first 25 years after our foundation in 1987, the Trust has preserved more than 36,000 acres of hallowed ground at 121 sites in 20 states. Nationally, only about 20 percent of the land associated with the Civil War’s most significant battles has
At Gettysburg and at battlefields across the country, the Trust works closely with the National Park Service to identify the highest priority pieces of land, those whose addition to the park would most enhance the way the story of those battlefields can be told. Together with other nonprofit partners, we are able to facilitate transactions that will have a lasting impact on the way future generations view, interpret and enjoy these battlefields. What better way to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War than by saving the land where those brave soldiers fought and died? Please join us in saving this land before it is too late.

OPM Proposes Changes to the Combined Federal Campaign The Federal Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has proposed changes to the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), which is the primary mechanism for Federal employees to give back by supporting charities in their communities. The proposed changes have faced mixed reactions by both Federal employees and participating charities, some of which think that levels of giving will suffer if the full set of proposals is adopted.
The period for public comment on the proposed changes has ended and Congressional hearings have begun. Constituents may still contact their Federal representatives to express their opinions on the OPM’s proposals.
The following changes have been proposed by the OPM:
Shift the annual campaign solicitation period by one month, so that it would begin on October 1 and end on January 15. 2. Provide new Federal employees with information on the CFC at orientation and enable them to make pledges within 30 days of being hired, if hired outside of the solicitation period. 3. Create a permanent structure to streamline and facilitate solicitations tied to disaster relief — OPM proposes to amend its regulations to provide for the creation of a Disaster Relief Program that would be available to donors within hours after a disaster. 4. Change the Local Federal Coordinating Committees (LFCC ) to a Regional Coordinating Committee (RCC) structure. 5. Eliminate the use of cash, check and money order contributions. Instead, all donations will be required to be made through electronic means. 6. Provide for additional training and oversight of the Regional Coordinating Committee (RCC). The training will be conducted by OPM staff and will focus 1.
on oversight responsibilities, charity eligibility requirements, and how to select a marketing organization. Eliminate paper processes within the CFC as much as possible — specifically, to eliminate printing and distributing the Charity List and other large printed documents. Consolidate responsibilities for back office functions and establish one or more Central Campaign Administrators (CCA). Stop covering overhead administrative costs for the CFC with fees assessed from donor contributions to the campaign. OPM proposes that the costs instead be recovered through application fees paid by the charitable organizations that apply for participation in the CFC. Reduce the burden on charities that have previously been admitted to participate in the program. Thus, these charities would be required to produce a more limited specified set of documents, via a reduced application form, to be admitted for the subsequent two years. Waive the audit requirement for organizations reporting less than $100,000 in annual revenue to the IRS. Strengthen regulations regarding federations to increase accountability and transparency — federations would provide a copy of each member organization’s application, require dates upon which disbursements must be made to members, add additional reporting requirements, and prohibit deductions of dues/fees from the disbursement of CFC contributions. Standardize and improve how payroll offices provide donor pledge reports to campaigns – by requiring payroll offices to either distribute funds to the charities directly or, if funds are transmitted to the CCA, provide more detailed reports.

CFC Adds Online Option for Donors at ‘MyPay’ The annual Combined Federal Campaign adds a new feature for donors this year: an online pledge option available through the Defense Finance and Accounting Service’s MyPay website, which most service members and civilians already use to view their leave and earnings statements.
“I made my gift on Tuesday, ... [and] I was easily matched to my local campaign.”
Anthony DeCristofaro is assistant director of the DoD Voluntary Campaign Management Office, which is within the Washington Headquarters Services’ human resources directorate. He told American Forces Press Service during a telephone interview that the online pledge option offers several advantages over paper pledge forms: • It’s available all the time, from any computer; • It’s more confidential and secure, as no paper forms pass from hand to hand; and • It’s less prone to error.
we have 4,500 charities,” he noted. “But nationwide, there are about 20,000 different charities in this campaign.”
– Anthony DeCristofaro, assistant director of the DoD Voluntary Campaign Management Office
DeCristofaro added that donors also are encouraged to use local CFC websites and other resources to research charities before giving DFAS their final instructions.
He explained that donors directly enter their input online only once, while the information on paper pledge forms is typed and retyped into the system — offering more chances for mistakes to creep in and also consuming thousands of total work hours in processing.
“I made my gift on Tuesday, … [and] I was easily matched to my local campaign,” he said. DeCristofaro said the process took him 10 minutes, and the next morning he had an email confirming his donation and start date. The system has been in active development for two years, he said. The Defense Finance and Accounting Service led the effort, with support from the Office of Management and Budget, which has a similar system in its executive agencies.
He said ease of use is potentially much greater, since donors using the online pledge option can search local, national or international charities. “Here in Washington,
In its first year, the service is open to employees in 90 of the 160 local CFC areas. Officials said more areas may be added in the future, and ask donors to use paper
pledge forms in areas where the MyPay option is not available this year. DeCristofaro said use of the system, like participation in CFC, is strictly voluntary. Many employees have asked for and will likely prefer electronic options, he said, although anyone who wants to make a one-time gift or use a paper CFC pledge form still can do so. The new option is “an example of a collaborative effort that went into increasing our efficiency,” he added. DFAS hired computer programmers and worked with payroll offices to build and test the system, he said. “You really had to have a lot of collaboration to get to this end product,” he said. “So many legacy systems come together here.” The new option will be available to eligible donors outside of the Defense Department, he noted, as the departments of Health and Human Services, Veterans Affairs and Energy, along with the Environmental Protection Agency, also are DFAS clients. “It is easy, it eliminates paper, and inside the government, it’s really going to save time,” he said.

Capital Area Food Bank Keeps Families Fed During Hard Times The Washington, DC metro area is characterized by a high cost of living, but how many know that it is also home to a large population living in poverty and at risk of hunger? That’s why The Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) works overtime to serve those struggling with hunger, serving as the hub for food sourcing, food distribution and nutrition education in the DC area. Higher unemployment and poverty rates correlate with higher rates of food insecurity, meaning the CAFB has had an especially big job in recent years. In fact, 30 percent of children under the age of 18 in the District of Columbia are living in households at risk of hunger. Karlene Webster never predicted she would end up in the food line, swallowing her pride to be able to feed her children a decent meal. “It happened in 1991, she said. “I don’t mind talking about it. I am proud of my suffering.” She and her husband were builders in Northern Virginia, but fell upon hard times during the recession of the early 1990s. Their business went under and the family of five eventually tapped their savings dry. “We had no choice,” Karlene said. “Neither of us was employed. Next thing you know, we were standing in a

food line, getting bags of groceries handed to us from out of the back of a car. People were without money, and without a job.” Despite Karlene’s stress and shame, the support she received in those food lines ensured that her three children — ages 8, 10 and 12 at the time — were fed and healthy. Karlene and her husband finally sold their home, obtained new employment and got their finances back in order. They now volunteer their time to help others, sharing their story with those who are standing in food lines today. There are many stories like that of Karlene. Hunger has tremendous short and long-term effects on children, including vulnerability to illness and infection, developmental delays and educational problems.
Together We Can Solve Hunger. Breakfast is the reason many kids look forward to going to school because 1 in 5 children in the Washington metro area goes to bed hungry.

Help us nourish our neighbors in need
Studies have shown cognitive impairment for children malnourished from the womb to age 2 as evidenced later by low IQ scores when compared to their more nourished counterparts. Hunger further impacts educational attainment, skill development and job readiness once a child reaches adulthood. Last year, the Capital Area Food Bank distributed 37.5 million meals – or 45 million pounds of food – including 17.5 million pounds of fresh produce. The charity’s service area includes Washington, DC, and neighboring counties of Maryland and Northern Virginia. More than 21,000 volunteers support the CAFB’s efforts each year, resulting in a savings of $2.6 million in staffing costs. They are a crucial part of the community’s response to hunger — and they come from a variety of places, including school groups, faith-based organizations, businesses, retiree groups and families. Despite the wealth of volunteer support for CAFB, the organization is in constant need of funds to maintain a supply of food for those in need. Those who donate funds to CAFB can do so confidently, since 92 cents of every $1 contributed is used for food distribution, transportation and programs.

Tina Cheatham: Lifelong Cheerleader for CFC “Like most Department of Health and Human Services staff, I just wanted to help people and connect with folks,” said Tina Cheatham, Division Director for External Affairs for the National Health Service Corps and Nurse Corps. “That’s why I began working for the federal government. I started with HHS when I was twenty-two, working in the hills of northwest Arkansas. My first client was a family with no running water, no electricity, and two special needs kids, and I helped them obtain Social Security benefits for their children.”
“Giving to CFC is part of my identity. I’m a voter, I’m a blood donor, I’m an HHS employee, and I give to the CFC. It’s part of who I am.”
After a decade of grass roots jobs in Arkansas and Dallas, Tina switched to a more policy-oriented job, working with the Children’s Health Insurance Program. That was the position that brought her to the Washington, DC area from her home state of Texas. Tina’s passion for the Combined Federal Campaign radiates around the room. “I’ve been a donor for all twentyfour years of my federal service.” Tina laughed and said, “Giving to CFC is part

All we have to do is look at our end-of-year payslips.” Tina is the 2013 Combined Federal Campaign Manager for the entire Department of Health and Human Services, the largest civilian agency in the CFC. “I’ve always been a cheerleader for the CFC, but this is my first official campaign job, outside of bringing some good Texas chili to the chili cookoffs. HHS employees want to help; that’s why they have the jobs they do, and I’m looking forward to giving every single HHS employee the chance to help through this year’s CFC.”

Prison Fellowship Ministries Transforms Lives of Troubled Inmates When the lure of drinking and drugs wore thin, Epifanio “Pefee” Arzapalo decided he needed a change and enlisted in the Army. But the desert foxhole didn’t prevent Pefee from being sucked back into the black hole of his dangerous habits.
A Plan and a Purpose
Pefee sat in a drunken haze in his holding cell, facing a long prison sentence for attempted murder. “Lord, you get me out of this situation,” he slurred, “and I will let everybody know that it was you. I’ll go to church. I’ll read your Bible.”
“Uncle Sam wants you,” the poster beckoned Pefee in 1975. The 20 year-old pined for some structure and a chance to change. So he signed up and left for training without telling his wife or two children.
A voice interrupted him. “You’re going to prison, but you will not be alone,” Pefee remembers with tears in his eyes. He decided to accept Jesus Christ as his Savior that day.
Meanwhile, Ron Magnus had left the Army that year and was recovering from a wound he received in the Vietnam War. After serving his country for years, he didn’t know at the time that he would soon be called upon to serve another role.
On a mission to change his life, Pefee submitted an application to transfer to Four Mile Correctional Facility in Colorado after he heard that Prison Fellowship was jumpstarting a transformational ministry program for inmates.
A Soldier’s Lie
On April 1, the chaplain at Four Mile contacted Pefee and told him he had been accepted. “I thought it was an April Fool’s joke!” Pefee laughs. “I realized that God opens doors that man wants to shut.”
No gun or uniform could camouflage the life Pefee led. The Army may have provided him with structure, but the inner change he sought proved elusive: “I took all my bad habits with me -- the adultery, the drinking, the spending money. It was just a mess.” By 1990, Pefee had served in and survived Operation Desert Storm, carrying home with him some deep wounds as he suffered from hip damage and post-traumatic stress disorder. He returned to the United States a man searching for truth at the bottom of a bottle.
One of those open doors led Pefee to his Prison Fellowship mentor, Ron Magnus. After talking for hours, the two veterans knew God had placed each other in their lives for a purpose. “Am I mentoring him, or is he mentoring me?” Ron jokes.

prayer, Bible studies, and reminders to resist temptation, Ron helped Pefee learn how to become a productive citizen and live a Christian life. Thanks to Prison Fellowship, its supporters, and Ron’s unwavering mentorship, Pefee has been out of prison since 2011, is reconciled with his family, and is active in church. He even keeps in touch with his mentor: “Ron’s a very dear and trusted friend. Even now, he cares,” Pefee smiles. Story by Carolyn Kincaid, Prison Fellowship Ministries

Christy Gardner is Back On Top, Thanks to DAV Charitable Service Trust Christy Gardner was serving in what many people call “the most dangerous place in the world” – the border between North and South Korea – when the unthinkable happened: she suffered a direct gunshot wound to the forehead. In the blink of an eye, this hero’s life changed forever. The bullet fractured Christy’s skull and damaged her brain and spinal cord. She lost her memory and her ability to walk and talk. She started having seizures and lost hearing in one ear. It was a devastating ordeal, but Christy met it head-on. After countless surgeries and months of rehabilitation, Christy had regained her speech, her mobility and some of her independence. And then doctors delivered another blow. They told Christy that she’d never play sports again. Christy was devastated. She didn’t know how she could face such a loss.
`Then Christy got a life-changing invitation to participate in the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic, an annual event sponsored by the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Charitable Service Trust. As Christy watched other injured vets literally conquer mountains, she learned an incredible lesson – that the only real limits were the ones she placed on herself. That realization changed Christy’s life, opening up a world of possibility and hope. Today Christy inspires other veterans to see all they can achieve as an awardwinning member of the Trust-sponsored DAV Warriors ice hockey team. Christy is deeply grateful for the support she and her fellow veterans receive from the Trust, support that inspires her to say: “While you may be hurt, there’s still so much you can achieve. Life can be absolutely amazing if you work for it.” Story courtesy of DAV Charitable Service Trust Photo courtesy of Robert Bukaty

Veteran Michael Perryman Uses Fitness Zone to Help on the Road back to Health, Thanks to Trust for Public Land Zones around the nation. In the past four years, The Trust for Public Land has built 52, including 41 in the Los Angeles area.
Michael Perryman’s health began to deteriorate after he suffered a stroke in 2010. He spent three months in the hospital, followed by extensive home recovery. A Vietnam veteran, Perryman was living on a fixed income and he wanted to exercise, but he couldn’t afford the monthly cost of joining a gym.
Tori Kjer, who manages some of the park projects in Los Angeles, explained, “The equipment is very userfriendly and intuitive. That’s one of the reasons it’s so popular. These new parks are creating spaces for neighbors to meet and families to spend time together, and for people to exercise and everyone to play.”
Perryman was living near his sister, Sue DeVaney, at her home in St. Petersburg, Florida and one day, she spotted a Fitness Zone installed by The Trust for Public Land in nearby Gladden Park. They are essentially outdoor gyms, free for all to use. “I went home and called Michael and we made a date to try it out,” she explained. “It was like an answered prayer.” Until that time last year, Michael hadn’t been out much. “I stayed indoors a lot,” he said recently. “I don’t want to say I was depressed, because I had a lot of people around caring for me. I just wasn’t thrilled with the situation I was in. It was a huge change.” “It had been about a year and a half since I’d had anywhere to work out,” he said. “I walked every day, but that’s about all I could do. I just didn’t feel good.”
Vietnam Veteran Mike Perryman poses with his sister Sue DeVaney on new equipment at the Fitness Zone opening at Gladden Park Recreational Center in St. Petersburg, Fla.
His sister, Sue, explained, “Once Michael was out of the hospital, he no longer qualified for physical therapy benefits. I checked around to see if any of the fitness clubs had specials for veterans or low-income folks, and they didn’t.” With the help of the Combined Federal Campaign and EarthShare, The Trust for Public Land is building Fitness

Humane Society of the United States Works to Reduce Animal Cruelty Driving transformational change for animals has been the goal of The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) since the organization was formed in 1954. With support from the Combined Federal Campaign, The HSUS is ranked the most effective animal group in a survey of Philanthropedia experts and receives Charity Navigator’s top rankings. While much remains to be done, the lives of billions of animals are better today because of the efforts of The HSUS’ supporters. Thanks to cooperation among animal welfare organizations including The HSUS, euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats is down by 80 percent since the mid-1970s. A pet adoption public service campaign, produced with Maddie’s Fund and the Ad Council, has generated more than $129 million in advertising during the last three years. The HSUS aids animal shelters when natural disasters and cruelty cases overwhelm their capacity to respond. More than 100,000 animals received sanctuary, rehabilitation and other direct care cared for in 2012 alone through The HSUS’ Animal Rescue Team, veterinary programs, wildlife response unit, and network of animal care centers. After Superstorm Sandy struck in 2012, HSUS staff and volunteers rescued 257 animals, sheltered more than 500, and helped reunite more than 400 pets with their families.
Those hard-hitting undercover investigations of animal cruelty have led to reforms in various sectors of the economy, including the fur industry, animal testing and agriculture. By focusing on consumer outreach as well as government and corporate policy reform, The HSUS is making significant improvements for animals.
The Humane Society of the United States’ Animal Rescue Team responder Jennifer Kulina-Lanese cares for a dog after Sandy struck the coasts of New York and New Jersey.
Over the last five years, The HSUS has worked to compel 34 states to set up new rules regarding inhumane puppy mills that churn out litters of puppies with no regard for the animals’ health or welfare. To help end the suffering of street dogs in countries around the globe, the group’s international arm sterilized 50,000 dogs in Bhutan in the last four years and aims to spread the program to other countries. With just a few states treating malicious cruelty as a felony two decades ago, now 49 states treat malicious cruelty as a felony, with all 50 states treating dogfighting as a specific felony and all 50 states outlawing cockfighting. The HSUS’ investigations, rewards programs, Animal Rescue Team, and law enforcement training programs help enforce these laws.
New restrictions on slaughtering downed cows were implemented after The HSUS documented that meat from ill and injured animals was entering the food supply. More than 60 major food retailers have pledged to phase out their purchase of pork from factory farms that confine sows in inhumane stalls. And the veal industry is also on its way toward voluntarily eliminating extreme confinement of calves by 2017. The HSUS persuaded the federal government to agree to release most laboratory chimpanzees to sanctuaries, and saved more than a million seals over the last four years by de-valuing pelts from Canada’s seal slaughter in the global marketplace. With continued support, The HSUS is poised to do even more to help in the decades ahead. Story by The Humane Society of the United States Photo courtesy of Lisa J. Godfrey for The HSUS

ServiceSource Warrior Bridge: Heroes Helping Heroes SSG (RET) Harry V. Louque is a medically retired Staff Sergeant who served combat tours in both Iraq and Kuwait. While in Iraq, Harry lost one of his closest friends in an attack by insurgents and sustained multiple injuries that resulted in him being medically evacuated. In the two years after his return, Harry’s physical wounds began to heal but the mental trauma he sustained haunted him. The trials of war and active duty took a large toll on Harry’s psyche. He suffered from insomnia and in the few times he could sleep he had terrible nightmares. Eventually, Harry was so paralyzed with fear he rarely left his house, negatively affecting his marriage. Harry was diagnosed with severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) related to his service, and was medically retired from the army. Once retired, Harry began working with a career specialist who directed him to ServiceSource. ServiceSource is a non-profit disability resource organization that provides a range of customized programs and supports for individuals with disabilities and their families, from employment and job placement to training, habilitation and housing. Through its Warrior Bridge program, ServiceSource is committed to giving back to wounded heroes by providing employment services and other supports

needed for a successful transition back into civilian life. ServiceSource hired Harry to work on an AbilityOne Federal Government contract, closing-out government contracts with a team of other veterans with disabilities.
Harry said, “With a lot of support ... ServiceSource stuck by me and those involved did all they could to help once again support me in a situation where most employers would have cut their losses.” Harry remains connected to the Warrior Bridge program and is serving as a mentor to other veterans struggling with the transition from military to civilian life. His goal is to help and inspire other veterans suffering from PTSD the way that ServiceSource was able to help him.
At the beginning of his time with ServiceSource, Harry was still traumatized by his PTSD and had sporadic work attendance. Concerned, ServiceSource asked for a meeting with Harry and his career specialist. During the meeting Harry explained his debilitating fear and his inability to even leave his house some days. ServiceSource worked with him to put together a schedule and program that accommodated his needs and would ease Harry back into the work force.
ServiceSource knows that veterans like Harry have valuable abilities that are an asset to any company and community. By working one-on-one with veterans to help navigate community resources and obtain the supports they need, ServiceSource is giving back to those who have given so much to all of us.

Mike Spinella Honored with CFCNCA Hero Award “Shock and awe,” is how Mike Spinella characterizes his reaction to being named a 2012 CFCNCA Hero – but his selection for the award seems to be a no-brainer. A life-long public servant, Spinella joined the US Navy shortly after high school graduation and later went to work for the Federal government. He has been an employee of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) since 2004. Spinella serves the NGA as a multi-media producer, and he put those same skills to work when volunteering for the agency’s CFC campaign. He produced more than 50 graphics, some of them animated, that were used to further the “Let’s make providing hope fun” theme. He also coordinated numerous events, including NGA’s second annual golf tournament, marshmallow eating contest, chili cook-off and white elephant giveaway. It’s not surprising that he was such an asset to the agency’s campaign given that 2012 was his eighth year serving as a CFC volunteer.
“Even the smallest amount of change can make a difference. When it comes to the CFC, coins turn into dollars, and dollars turn into hope.” — Mike Spinella, 2012 CFCNCA Hero Award Winner
“Mr. Spinella ensured all NGA CFC event coordinators had exactly what they needed to run their events,” said NGA CFC Co-Manager Dr. Karen D. Halstead in her written nomination of Spinella. She also

wrote about his commitment to volunteer service outside of the NGA’s CFC campaign, explaining that he volunteers with his community’s beautification program and community crime watch team.
\One of six children, Mike Spinella is a native of Maryland. He said his mother always told him not to “toot his own horn,” and that he volunteers his time not for the recognition but to lift his own heart. “The smile on the other side of the table is all worth it,” he said. In 2012, the NGA’s CFC campaign maintained a high level of momentum, resulting in a record number of Eagle and Double Eagle donors. The average donation per participating donor was $828, and approximately $165 per person was raised agency-wide. “Countless people and organizations are helped through support to the CFC,” said Spinella. “If you can’t give money, give time.

Robert Griffin III put together his most complete game of the year. He had a season-high 84 yards rushing, completed more than 60 percent of his passes and led a gamewinning drive. Griffin’s 105.2 passer rating was a season-best. Last year, the Redskins quarterback was the most efficient player in the NFL, leading the league in yards per pass attempt (8.1) and yards per rush (6.8). On Sunday, he reverted back to his old ways, averaging 10.3 yards per pass and 7.6 yards per rush. With the Redskins’ struggling defense, Griffin will have to continue to dominate.

Two teams that averaged a combined 58 points per game and allowed a combined 55 totaled 13 punts in a first half that ended with Dallas (4-3) leading 3-0. The Eagles (3-4) have lost a franchise-worst nine straight games at home.
Nick Folk kicked a 42-yard field goal in overtime to lift the New York Jets to a victory over the New England Patriots. Folk got a second chance after he missed a 56-yarder moments earlier. But Chris Jones was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for pushing a teammate forward to try to block the kick, a new NFL rule. Geno Smith threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score as the Jets (4-3) topped Tom Brady and the Patriots (5-2).

Expect juicy plotlines: Can Gold Glove catcher Yadier Molina shut down Jacoby Ellsbury and the running Red Sox? Can all-world closer Koji Uehara stop Matt Holliday and the Cardinals? Plus, there’s plenty of history: think Stan Musial vs. Ted Williams in 1946, Bob Gibson vs. Carl Yastrzemski in ’67 or Pedro Martinez vs. Albert Pujols in 2004. Or, perhaps more memorably that last time, Curt Schilling and the bloody sock vs. The Curse. The Red Sox and Cardinals are hardly arch enemies, however. They haven’t played since Kevin Youkilis homered over the Green Monster in the 13th inning on June 22, 2008. This year, Boston and St. Louis bounced back from disappointments and tied for the most victories in the majors with 97. Not since the Braves and Yankees in 1999 have league win leaders met in the World Series (the Cardinals and Red Sox were the top-scoring
The Cardinals won the NLCS over the Dodgers on Friday (top), and the Red Sox defeated the Tigers in the ALCS on Saturday.
teams in their leagues, too). Mike Napoli, Shane Victorino and Boston’s scraggly band rose under ﬁrst-year manager John Farrell, a season after the team hit bottom under Bobby Valentine with its most losses in nearly ﬁve decades. Matt Carpenter, Matt Adams and St. Louis rebounded a year after wasting a 3-1 lead in the NL Championship Series against the Giants. Manager Mike Matheny got lots of help from a rookie-laden staff. Wacha was the MVP of the NLCS and is 3-0 with an 0.43 ERA in the postseason. Rosenthal took

19th NL pennant by trouncing Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers on Friday night in Game 6 of the NLCS. “Watching them last night, they’ve got a fantastic team. And a lot of young power arms that will walk to that mound,” Farrell said. The Red Sox earned their 13th pennant Saturday night, riding Victorino’s go-ahead grand slam to a 5-2 victory over Detroit in Game 6 of the ALCS. Uehara was the MVP with a win and three saves. “It ’s been a special ride,” Pedroia said, “and we’re still going.”
The Maryland football team will ﬁnish the season without the services of its two star wide receivers, after both Stefon Diggs and Deon Long suffered lower right leg injuries in Maryland’s 34-10 loss to Wake Forest on Saturday afternoon. During his postgame news conference, coach Randy Edsall said Long broke both his tibia, the leg’s weight-bearing bone, and the smaller-size ﬁbula. Diggs, who appeared dinged up on the same play in which Long was injured early in the second quarter but returned to the game, exited two plays into the fourth quarter with what Edsall revealed to be a broken ﬁbula. The sophomore will “probably [have] surgery sometime this week,” Edsall said. “It’s unfortunate,” Edsall said. “I feel bad for both those guys. We got to make sure we move forward.” ALE X PREWIT T (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Diablo Cody finally makes a move behind the camera for her new movie ‘Paradise’ Film
Diablo Cody’s life story sounds like a movie she might write: A dynamic young woman with a unique voice wins an Oscar for her first screenplay, is embraced and vilified by the media, and emerges with more opportunities and greater self-assurance than before. Cody’s Hollywood crash course
began with her best screenplay Oscar for 2007’s “Juno,” about a wisecracking pregnant teen, and continued with a TV deal with Steven Spielberg and two more movies. Her directorial debut, “Paradise,” arrived in theaters on Friday. After Cody captivated Hollywood with “Juno,” people pressed her to direct, but she wasn’t driven to try it at the time. “I’ve worked with directors who were really respectful of my scripts and who involved me in the ﬁlmmaking process, so I used to say I had a good racket going,” the 35-year-old said. “All I had to
do was write the script, and then I got to sit back and take credit for these amazing ﬁlms.” Eventually, though, Cody felt the time had come to try directing. Her challenge, like that of her protagonist in “Paradise”: to discover her central character. The film, which Cody also wrote, stars Julianne Hough as Lamb, a small-town religious girl whose faith is challenged after a disﬁguring accident leaves her covered with burn scars. Lamb sets out for Las Vegas, where she checks off a to-do list of “sins” such as drinking, gambling and dancing.
In “Paradise,” now playing, the faith of good girl Lamb Mannerheim (Julianne Hough, right) is shaken after a plane crash, and she publicly renounces God — to the dismay of her small-town congregation. She heads to Vegas, where she meets a bartender (Russell Brand) and a cynical lounge singer (Octavia Spencer, left) who help her make up for lost time. (E XPRESS)
Making the ﬁlm coincided with Cody’s second pregnancy, which compounded an already challenging task. Cody also had her 18-month-old in tow as she directed her cast and crew through 26 days of shooting in New Orleans and Las Vegas. “During pre-production, I was in my ﬁrst trimester,” she said. “During the shoot, I was in my second and then during post, I was in my third. Then I had the baby and delivered the movie.” The whole time, Cody stayed true to herself, just as her main characters always do. “I want to believe that you can maintain your essential core and hang on to your innocence in a way,” Cody said, “even if your body is burned, even if you get pregnant as a teenager, even if you win an Oscar with your ﬁrst screenplay.” SANDY COHEN (AP)
The Net at the Met: “Two Boys,” an opera about the Internet by 32-year-old New Yorker Nico Muhly, receives its North American premiere at the Metropolitan Opera in New York tonight. The work is a fictionalized account of a real-life British teenager who used the Internet in an attempt to arrange his own murder in 2003. Muhly wrote the opera with librettist Craig Lucas in a method Wagner would be unfamiliar with: trading files via email. (AP)

16 years later, ‘The Lion King’ musical is still smashing records Theater “The Lion King” has more reason to roar — it’s on pace to end the week as the first Broadway show to earn $1 billion. According to The Broadway League, the show ended last week
with a 16-year gross of $999,267,836. It regularly pulls in between $1 million and $2 million a week. The show, featuring the music of Elton John and Tim Rice, brought the 1994 animated Disney movie to life onstage in 1997. Director and designer Julie Taymor created the memorable costumes, puppetry and scenic design. “The Lion King” has been a model of consistency in its march through records. In April 2012, it

Billion-Dollar Mane Attraction
Dashaun Young portrays Simba in the Broadway version of “The Lion King.”
swiped the title of Broadway’s highest-grossing show from “The Phantom of the Opera,” despite “Phantom” having almost a full 10 years’ head start. The Disney show opened in November 1997, while “Phantom” debuted in January 1988. The show has made $5 billion across 21 global productions. This summer, Disney announced the show’s total touring box-ofﬁce gross in North America alone had reached $1 billion.
Part of its longevity is due to the movie tie-in, simple-to-understand story, family-friendly themes and the fact that it’s a spectacle not dependent on big-name stars — important for attracting tourists whose command of English might be weak. The show is breathing down the neck of “Les Miserables” for the title of fourth longest-running Broadway show, behind only “Chicago,” “Cats” and “The Phantom of the Opera.” “Les Miserables” closed in 2003 after 6,680 shows, and “The Lion King” will end this week with 6,621.

years ago, “Metro Matches.”) Their reception will take place later at the Rock Creek Mansion. HOW THEY MET: At Fort Totten, both on their way back from concerts. He spotted the three straight-edge Xs on her shirt, then rolled up his arm to show her his matching tattoo. “What are the chances?” he said. FIRST IMPRESSIONS: “A strikingly beautiful woman.” “I thought he was too young for me. But I knew he wasn’t your typical D.C. guy.”
FIRST KISS: On top of a jungle gym after a dance party. HOW HE PROPOSED: On a hike. “Chris told me he wanted COMPLETE privacy. I’m thinking, ‘We’re either breaking up or he lost one of the cats.’ ” MOST HATED CLOTHING ITEM: His jalapeno-and-hot sauce boxers. THEIR SONG: “As the World Falls Down,” from “Labyrinth.” “We sat in my car one night until 4 a.m., just listening to the whole ‘Labyrinth’ soundtrack,” Skiff says. MAKING IT UNIQUE: The dress code was “pirate, with the option of cocktail attire.” WITH INFINITE FUNDS: He’d have “hired dozens of people to dress as Ewoks to pass out hors d’oeuvres.”
FIRST DATE: He visited her at Tabard Inn, where she worked at the time. “She gave me a Tootsie Pop (not a euphemism).” HOW HE PROPOSED: With champagne and a handmade ring box … on the Metro, of course. “I thought ‘@#$% yeah,’ and probably said that out loud,” she says. WEDDING JITTERS: “I’m going to be really careful that my dress doesn’t get caught in the escalator!”

HOW HE PROPOSED: He recreated their first date, then gave her a card and the ring. THEIR SONG: “I Will Wait,” by Mumford and Sons. “He started singing this song in the car to me one day, which is when I knew I was falling in love with him.” STUPIDEST FIGHT: “We took a wrong turn that was making us late for a comedy show. Andrea was over it and insisted we go home,” he says.

PAR SCORE 150-160, BEST SCORE 237
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Force of habit will dictate many of your actions, but during evening hours you’ll have the freedom to do something quite new. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) The time has come to ask for what is yours by right. You’ve seen resistance in the past, but today it is likely to be minimal. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You are able to combine the pragmatic and the fantastical in a way that surprises your critics and inspires your supporters. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) The problems you encounter may be born of personality rather than any deficiency in knowledge or skill. Discuss this openly. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You can gather more resources than anyone might expect. What you do with them will make all the difference.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) There is no room for insecurity or self-doubt at this time. Do what you can, and that will surely be more than enough.
FOUR RACK TOTAL Make a 2-7-letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Your own will may not be quite enough to ensure success, so you must solicit the aid of those who have pledged support in the past. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Your eagerness to see into the future and know what’s going to transpire may be too much. Let things happen on their own.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may work closely with someone whose motives are similar to your own, but whose methods differ dramatically. You can learn a lot! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You are resolved to fulfill a certain aspect of your destiny, and you surely can, with the help of those around you — now or very soon.

Today: Sunny and beautiful today. Partly cloudy tonight.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You and a friend may be involved in separate endeavors that are actually parallel in tone and intention. You can share a victory very soon. CANCER (June 21-July 22) It’s a good day to challenge authority and break with tradition, but be sure to keep your feet on the ground.
