North Union man fatally shot by state police BY SUSY KELLY

State police in Uniontown are investigating a trooper-involved shooting in which a North Union Township man was killed late Friday. At around 10:40 p.m., Fayette County 911 called state troopers from the Uniontown barracks to respond to a domestic dispute at 52 Rose Boulevard. Police said when they arrived and tried to enter the home, they encountered Shawn E. Knight, 50, who police said had a handgun in each hand. The officers retreated from the residence and took cover outside, police said. According to police reports, Knight followed the troopers outside, and when he failed to

Ten Commandments monument unveiled in Connellsville BY FRANCES BORSODI ZAJAC

The grassroots movement Thou Shalt Not Move unveiled the first of 14 Ten Commandments monuments Saturday night at the Fraternal Order of Eagles in Connellsville. The dedication took place in what was being called a Freedom Festival for the Ten Commandments that included prayers and patriotism. The section of Arch Street in front of the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aries 493 was blocked off for the event while spectators listened to music and speakers, could purchase signs and t-shirts to support the effort or come inside the Eagles to take part in a meal. The event enjoyed a break from rainy weather that has hit the area this past week, and participants were pleased to note the appearance of a rainbow in the sky. Guy Tressler and several children in the audience unveiled the monument, which was placed at the front of the Eagles building. Tressler was Eagles president in 1957 when the organization donated the Ten Commandments monument that stands covered at the Connellsville Junior High School that is now

opted to hire the parttime workers rather than fill six vacant full-time positions. “It’s a cheaper worker for the county,” said Hicks Thursday in assessing the board action. “[The county] doesn’t pay for heath care for a parttime worker.” The county and the union are currently negotiating a new contract for the workers. The current three-year agreement expired in December. Hicks said that in addition to the 40 bid positions, the contract includes an additional five “floating” posts. Floating positions have no specific shifts, as the bid positions do. The unfilled slots include three corrections officers for a female holding center and two corrections positions that have been vacated due to internal promotions. The sixth full-time post is

vacant due to an officer on extended sick leave, according to Hicks. The prison board hiring action brings the total of part-time workers to 25. Dominek Carnicella, county human resource director through Felice Associates of Greensburg and primary negotiator for the county in the contract talks, indicated that the prison positions are filled and the additional part-time workers will be used to ease overtime costs. In June, the county spent more than $13,000 in overtime costs of which half the amount was tied to full-time workers taking days off when scheduled to work, officials said. Warden Brian Miller said that, on average, two officers report off daily. “If it’s a holiday, triple it,” he said. “If it’s a weekend, double it.” With the shortage of full-time workers, parttime guards are picking up the full-time hours, and that is in violation of the current contract, said Hicks.

Compare & Save with our low prices… “The contract says that parttime officers can only be scheduled for 20 hours or less and be used for relief scheduling,” he said. “(With vacancies and vacations) the part-time officers are now working full-time hours, and there are not enough people.” Health care costs also likely played a key role in hiring part-time over fulltime workers, Hicks said. “It costs $20,000 a year for full-time workers,” he said. “Part-time workers don’t get health care.” Health care benefits are a priority for current workers and retirees who are cut from the benefit program upon exiting their position. “We have people working 10, 20 or 30 years that are eligible to retire but can’t because they

won’t have any health care benefits,” said Hicks. “So they have to continue working.” Other issues, such as salary, severance pay and improved working conditions are also on the table. “We’re trying to restructure how we are paid so that some of those benefits can be deferred to our retirement,” he said. While Carnicella has represented the county, Hicks believes Commissioners Al Ambrosini, Vincent Zapotosky and Angela M. Zimmerlink

the account given by the Knight family’s spokesman is not consistent with information he has learned from the investigation thus far. Heneks said the police are in the process of retrieving video surveillance footage from another home on the same street which may reveal what happened from outside the home.

He said police will also look at footage from any police vehicles equipped with video cameras for information. Heneks said no charges have been filed in the matter, and the autopsy has not yet been conducted.

The two troopers involved in the shooting, who have not identified, are on administrative duty, as per department regulations, police said. Kristen Brownfield, who lives next door to the Knights, said she, her husband and their 2-year-old were in their bedroom on the side of the house adjacent to the Knights’ property when they heard muffled arguing. “Then we heard five or six shots,” Brownfield

Worth a chance Much riding on success of new casino There will be a lot at stake during Monday’s grand opening of the Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Farmington — and it has nothing to do with the polished chips the patrons push across felt tables or the cards they swipe through glittering slot machines. We fully expect eager gamblers to fill the table games and slots at the resort casino starting this week — and, of course, wish them the best of luck — but there is a lot more on the line than those gamblers’ good or ill fortune. The resort’s owner and founder Joe Hardy, obviously has the most to gain, but everyone in the county has a stake in this game. Consider the economic benefits the casino has already brought to the table: the casino has already meant 500 more jobs, with another 200 possible, at the resort. These are men and women for whom the success of the casino goes beyond whether or not it’s good for Hardy, making a direct, positive impact on their lives. Even for someone who never steps foot into the glittering landscape of the casino floor or doesn’t collect a paycheck from the resort, they must acknowledge that the addition of 700 jobs in our county is a huge plus. After all, as of April, Fayette County’s unemployment rate was 9 percent, the 52nd highest among the state’s 67 counties. Overall, our unemployment rate was a full 1.5 percent above the state average and 1.4 percent above the national average. Moreover — and more directly — the casino also means a very real dollarsand-sense impact for our area. It is expected that the casino will mean more than a million dollars a year for both Wharton Township, where the casino is located, and Fayette County at large. Simply put, there are scant few opportunities to bring in that level of revenue, and the money provides an opportunity for a better life for both county and township residents. One aspect of the grand opening, though, is causing some consternation. Based on the state’s gaming law, there will be a fee for those entering the casino. It’s worth mentioning that, despite the claims of some who have complained about it, the fee does not end up lining Hardy’s pockets. It’s also not, as has been suggested, a way to keep the clientele at a particular level. There’s simply no doubt that Hardy would love nothing better than to have no fee to attract more gamblers into his casino. He’s trying to get people into the casino, not keep them out. The fee requirement was written into the law by the state legislature. Hardy has nothing to do with its existence and does not benefit from it. Those revenues will go back to the state, which explains why it was written into the law in the first place. Lady Luck is one of only two casinos in the entire country faced with this requirement; the other being the state’s other resort class casino in Valley Forge near Philadelphia. If anyone is upset about the fee, they should contact their local legislator and try to get them to change the law, not sit by idly and blame Hardy. While the fee may be an obstacle, it’s not onerous, and the hope is that most residents will find it cheaper than driving to Pittsburgh or Wheeling to try their luck at a game of chance. No matter how you look at it, though, the casino is a gamble for everyone involved. But with so much at stake in the way of jobs and tax revenues, all local residents should be hoping it’s one that pays off big time.

Legislator inspires many with filibuster With women like Wendy Davis around, it’s easy to allow some optimism about the future of reproductive rights. In a time when it can feel like we’re heading backward instead of forward on these issues, Texas state Senator Wendy Davis stood for 11 hours, like a dam against a retreating tide — no leaning, no bathroom breaks, no food, no water — and slowed the backward movement by speaking about the importance of a woman’s right to her own body. For a while, she did this without much fanfare and very little media attention outside of Texas. Social media unearthed the story first, and then hundreds of thousands of people tuned in to watch her. By all accounts, it seemed like she’d won. In the late hours, the media finally took notice and started reporting on Sen. Davis’s gutsy effort, on the crowds that gathered at the Capitol to cheer her on, and on her apparent success in arresting the bill’s progress. But, caught up in celebration (or defeat, depending on your stance), many people missed this part: Texas Gov. Rick Perry has called a second special session for July 1, where the bill Sen. Davis fought against will most likely pass. Easily. The bill that led to Sen.

Jessica Vozel Davis’s filibuster, if enacted on July 1, will make three sweeping changes to reproductive rights in Texas. It will: make abortions illegal after 20 weeks, require that all abortion providers secure admitting privileges at local hospitals (a difficult task, because hospitals can refuse that privilege on religious or “inconvenience” grounds) and mandate costly, unnecessary upgrades to abortion provider facilities. Ultimately, 37 of Texas’s 42 abortion clinics will likely be forced to close, leaving women in rural Texas with no options except to drive for hours and hours across America’s largest state. Still, I stay optimistic, because women like Sen. Wendy Davis and everyone who stands behind her (on Twitter, 400,000 individual users tweeted using the hashtag #standwithwendy) are in the world. I know many of you reading this believe that

abortion is wrong, just as passionately as I believe it is necessary. Of all the columns I’ve written, the ones about abortion collect the most (and the angriest) feedback. I want to acknowledge that what to me felt like a victory early Wednesday morning, seemed to you like a grave defeat. And what will likely be a sad day for pro-choice men and women — Monday July 1, when the Texas legislature reconvenes for that special session — will be your triumph. I can only say this: for better or worse, there will always be abortion. There will always be women who value their autonomy, their rights and their ability to choose their own path in life. Women in rural Texas will find other ways to take that control back — for themselves, for their health, for the families they already have. It’s just that if/when this bill passes, those ways will be more desperate and less safe. But, thank goodness, there will always be people fighting to keep women safe. Wendy Davis had a baby at age 19 and lived in a North Texas trailer park before putting herself through college and, later, Harvard Law School. This was a decade after Roe v. Wade, so she had a choice. She chose to have and raise a child in a difficult

circumstance, and still she fights for those who would have made a different choice. On Thursday, Gov. Rick Perry added insult to injury by twisting Davis’s past into an anti-choice message. He praises that she “managed” to graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate and then tacks on this kicker: “It is just unfortunate that she hasn’t learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.” First of all, Gov. Perry’s statement makes no sense. Sen. Davis didn’t learn from her own example to herself? Surely, an intelligent woman like Sen. Davis has learned from her own life experiences, and that’s how she ended up with a law degree, speaking for 11 grueling hours on the issue. It’s patronizing and offensive to say that she’s misguided for not taking the lesson Gov. Perry wanted her to take from her own life. He’ll never live through what she lived. But I take comfort in the fact that Sen. Davis is out there, calling attention to these issues and drumming up support from Texas men and women for the long, long fight ahead.

Fayette County changing for the better According to MerriamWebster Dictionary, magic is defined as the use of means (as charms or spells) believed to have supernatural power over natural forces. So it only seems appropriate that I use the word “magical” to describe where I live. No I’m not referring to the house where I currently reside — even though its pretty awesome. No, my friends; I am referring to the place we all call home … Fayette County! What? Some of you are even appalled and others laughing as you wonder why in God’s name would she use the term “magical” to describe our community. Just hear me out on this one, folks — I promise it will be worth it! Growing up, at least for a few generations, we’ve referred to Fayette County as “Fayette Nam.” I witness this type of thinking, acting and speaking way too often. When I am coaching a client or meeting with a student, I ask them to share with me their strengths and weaknesses. Most of the time, folks list nearly five times more weaknesses than they do strengths. This thought process seems to be the same with our perception of Fayette County. We allow the negative statistics related to poverty, teen pregnancy, employment, acts of violence and obesity to define who we are. These statistics may be true, but we are more than that. We are a community where magic happens. In our community, young people are winning national awards for community development, encouraging

Gina Jones each other through professional development events and standing up to violence. Young people are refusing to let those statistics define us. If you’ve ever paid attention to history — local, national, world — you would know that many of the most important, life-altering acts or movements have been led by young and younger people. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was 39 years old when he was assassinated. Think about that for a moment? Some of the most, if not the most, important work done to establish equal rights in our country was done by a young professional! That means throughout his 20s and 30s, Dr. King was leading a movement that would change a country and arguably the world. I am sure that during the same time that Dr. King was writing his speeches and sermons, hosting local rallies and meeting with heads of state, criminal acts were occurring in his community and other communities around the country. What if he chose to focus on all that was negative around him? He could have

chosen to participate in the chaos, but he didn’t. He could have refused his calling, but he didn’t. He could have remained quiet, but he didn’t. What if we all decided to stop the negative self-talk about ourselves and about our community? What if I told you that some young people are already doing it? The following is a short list of awesome young people you may know who are doing great things to change Fayette County. Brownsville High School Students In Action won national recognition two years in a row for the development and implementation of plans to create a community park in Brownsville.

During the final session, a young lady from Albert Gallatin High School closed her speech with quote from Gandhi that said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” She went on to commit herself from this day forward to being the change and leading the way. Let’s make some magic happen, people! Stop complaining. Stop whining. Stop being the victim, and plug into the power of our youth! They are going to change this place … and I love them for it. (P.S.

Today’s Question: Do you support the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalizes same-sex marriage? Harry Brownfield

Linda Dean

Megan Guthrie

Debra Stemming





I do support the Supreme Court’s ruling legalizing same-sex marriage, because it simply brings 21st-century thinking in line with the founding principals of the country, that all people are equal before the law.

No, I don’t, because it’s against the word of God.



Words Web from the

The Supreme Court of the United States has struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, in effect granting equal rights and benefits to married gay and lesbian couples (including tax breaks, pension rights and other benefits that are available to married couples) . What’s your take on this landmark decision?

Yes, and I think that they should have the same rights, because if one partner gets sick and the other one’s family member could keep them from seeing each other, especially if they’ve been together a long time, that’s just not right. And if they have property together, there’s the inheritance tax. It just doesn’t pass if a married couple, a heterosexual couple, had property together, it would just pass to the other spouse. That’s just not right.

Ye s , I d o . B u t t h e government should not have a right to say who we can and cannot love or marry. My daughter is gay, and I think she should have the same rights as anybody else.

I do support the ruling. I think it’s an amazing stride and just overall progress with this country in equality.

Everyone deserves to be happy, morals, beliefs, culture and religion of a particular people. gay or straight, and, yes, they were born this way!” It would be unconstitutional, and the fact that it is still considered illegal violates many other amendments of the “It’s a great day to be a liberal!” Constitution. Come up with a better argument if you are against it. Until then, let these people have the right to be “About time!” as happy and/or as miserable as straight people.

Country needs to come together on immigration issue

By the Rev. Dr. Donald P. Wilson

As public discussion of immigration reform has intensified, the faithful of all denominations have taken time to explore the values and tenets of their faith as it speaks to this contentious issue. Religious organizations have in previous instances stood aside from the heated political debate over immigration. However, as an increasing number of religious Americans share the lessons of their faith, it has become self-evident that the religious community can play an active, positive role in this vital discussion. Immigration reform affects not only core issues of American law and public policy but the moral direction of our nation. My feelings are shared by a growing chorus of national faith leadership groups, including the Evangelical Immigration Table, a coalition of over 100,000 American churches currently engaged in grassroots action intended to remind people of faith that the fair and respectful treatment of our neighbors and all those in to our community is a core tenet of our faith.

S.744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, makes great strides in realizing the dignity of our neighbors while strengthening our communities and the rule of law. I am proud to stand with hundreds of thousands of the faithful in supporting it. Family is of paramount importance in our lives. Throughout history, the religious community has fought on the side of families — in keeping them together in times of crisis and providing local support in moments of need. All individuals are made in the image of God, and no moral good is served by breaking apart families, often sending mothers and fathers thousands of miles from children and relatives, if their only crime is the pursuit of a better life for their loved ones. Many of these men and women arrived in this country as youths, have spent years or decades together in the United States as a family and have integrated into our way of life with passion and commitment. They are in so many ways the most humble among us and the most deserving of the forgiveness and assistance stressed by our teachings.

Religious leaders and the faithful justifiably question the moral benefit of breaking apart loving and stable families when other, less disruptive and less costly means of addressing the concerns of undocumented residency are available. S.744 offers us those means. It would be our failing to spurn them. We believe there is a better way and that S.744 provides it. Far from offering any “free pass” to undocumented families, S.744 requires that undocumented immigrants pay a fine to the government as well as any unpaid taxes accrued during their time in the United States. This fine-and-tax provision allows undocumented families the opportunity to make right through our government for their earlier mistakes, while recognizing that a large number of these families have paid at least some tax during their time in America. This is far better than the current system of deportation and family division, which pays no mind to the fact that many undocumented immigrants have children who use our schools and who feel every bit as American as you and I. When we consider these

families and the criticism that they are being “rewarded” for entering our country illegally, it benefits us to hear the words of Matthew the Apostle: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” An open and loving community that welcomes all members is the true example of the life of our teachings. We must ask, as religious leaders and as a nation of the faithful, whether we will follow our teachings only in word, or if we will walk the sometimes difficult path of implementing his vision of tolerance, love and inclusion in deed. The religious community has an obligation to exemplify the best in our community and our nation and to support efforts that move America towards greater respect for human dignity and the sanctity of a loving family. For too long there has been polarization around the role of the religious community in America, and issues like immigration reform show us that, though we may from time to time disagree, our common humanity to others unites us as a nation and a people. A

broad range of my colleagues have come together in support of the S.744. It is our hope Congress will as well. l am well aware that these proposals do not offer perfect answers, however they do bring to the table matters for careful consideration and serious discussion. It is my hope that we can prayerfully discuss these issues and work toward a common and productive solution. May we come together in mutual respect and love working for the greater good of our great nation and our fellow man. T h e R e v . D r. D o n a l d P. Wilson is a resident of Waynesburg.

Zoning exception dispute heads to Commonwealth Court sewage and traffic in the area. The board also found that the proposed development is “consistent with the general character of the neighborhood.” But in a 3-2 vote, the exception was once again denied, based on audience protests that the development would be “a detriment to the health, welfare and safety of the community.” GFLP appealed the second denial on February 8. In the appeal, the petitioners noted that the concerns raised at the January zoning hearing were “nearly identical” to objections raised previously. However, the appeal noted, “No expert testimony was presented by the objectors.” “The action of the board in denying the request for special exception was arbitrary, capricious, constituted an error of law and was an abuse of discretion,” the appeal stated, noting that GFLP was in compliance with applicable ordinances and “all testimony in opposition to (the request) regarding any potential harm was purely speculative.” Wagner agreed in an opinion and order drafted May 7, reversing the zoning board’s decision and granting GFLP’s exception. He referred back to Solomon’s earlier ruling, stating, “Judge Solomon correctly stated that a special exception is a misnomer because it is not really an exception to the permitted usage in a zoning area, but rather it is a permitted use provided that the conditions and criteria set forth in the controlling zoning ordinance are met.” “Once the applicant meets his burden of proof, the burden shifts to the objector to the special exception to establish that the

usage will likely generate more-than-usual adverse impacts which pose a substantial threat to the health and safety of the community,” Wagner wrote, adding that there was no factual finding to support the objectors’ conclusion that the development would be detrimental to the community. On May 28, the group of Hopwood residents, who according to court filings were among those in attendance at the zoning hearing board meetings, moved to intervene. They asked Wagner to reconsider his decision, arguing that they should have been notified of the appeal. In response to that claim, attorney Simon B. John, solicitor for the zoning board, told the court that the board had fulfilled its obligation to supply its decision regarding the exception request to those present at the hearing as well as the applicant. However, he stated that according to statute, the board is not required to give notice of the filing of any appeal nor the decision regarding the appeal. Wagner denied the motion to intervene and the accompanying motion to reconsider on June 4, agreeing that the zoning board had no affirmative duty to notify the landowners of the appeal. “Moreover,” wrote Wagner, “the prospective interveners testified twice in this matter, offering evidence at both hearings held by the zoning hearing board but each time offered only opinion evidence insufficient to overcome the expert evidence and regulatory permits submitted by (GFLP).” The next day, the intervening party filed notice of appeal. The Commonwealth Court will rule on the matter at a later date.



Frankel: Momentum building for gay discrimination ban By Natasha Lindstrom For the Herald-Standard

HARRISBURG — State Rep. Dan Frankel is pouncing on the chance to use a dispute between an openly gay House Democrat and staunch conservative to fuel support for his anti-discrimination bill. “As ugly as it was, I think helps motivate and energize our efforts to get some change in Pennsylvania,” said Frankel, D-Allegheny, who co-chairs the legislature’s LGBT Equality Caucus. Rep. Brian Sims, D-Philadelphia, is blasting Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-Cranberry, for blocking his attempt to discuss the U.S. Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage during a session on the House floor. Meanwhile, Metcalfe is accusing Sims of attacking a lawmaker’s right to voice his personal views in the press. On Wednesday, a day after the Supreme Court deemed the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and overturned California’s gay marriage ban, Sims told the House speaker he wanted to comment on the

historic developments. But when the freshman lawmaker got up to speak, Metcalfe and at least one other legislator objected. House rules allow members to veto a fellow member from speaking under “unanimous consent.” The full-fledged controversy didn’t erupt until Thursday, after Sims found out Metcalfe told WHYY-FM that he withdrew his consent because he believed what Sims had to say would have been “open rebellion against God’s law.” “To cut off a gay person from exercising their constitutional rights on the House floor because they might offend your personal religious beliefs, for me that is the height of egregiousness in the statehouse,” Sims said Friday afternoon, when he was pondering a push to have Metcalfe formally reprimanded. Sims called Metcalfe’s objection a “perfect example of discrimination on the House floor.” Metcalfe stands by his remarks. He said he objected because he was sure he and the majority of his constituents would find Sims’ remarks

offensive. “As a Christian, I could not sit here and be a part of his open rebellion against God, and that’s what his remarks would have done,” Metcalfe said. He further criticized Sims’ push to censure him based on his comments to the media as a political tactic “to silence people who have views that are opposite to what he believes.” Frankel denounces Metcalfe’s remarks — but also believes the comments have spurred momentum for House Bill 300, a proposal to ban housing and workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. “I think people were embarrassed for our chamber and outraged by the experience,” Frankel said, “but I think Daryl (Metcalfe) really exposed the ugly underbelly of some of the extreme opposition to recognizing the rights of the LGBT citizens and to the extent that that gets exposed, I think it helps us.” By Friday, 12 more House members had signed on as cosponsors of HB 300, including two more Republicans. A total

of 78 House Democrats and 11 Republicans are now backing the bill. The Senate’s equivalent version is co-sponsored by 23 Democrats and two Republicans. As it stands, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act prohibits discrimination on several grounds, including age, race, gender, ethnicity and religion. HB 300 would add sexual orientation and gender identity to that list. At least 21 states have laws prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity, and similar policies are in place at more than 100 employers and in 14 municipalities across Pennsylvania, according to the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. A federal bill targeting housing discrimination against gays was introduced in Congress on Tuesday. Frankel introduced HB 300 during last year’s session, but it never made it out of the House State Government Committee. Metcalfe serves as the committee’s chair. “I had one of my colleagues tell me we should bring it up

just so we can defeat it, but I don’t generally move bills that we have an intention on defeating,” Metcalfe said. “If a bill has merit and support, we’ll consider it.” Convinced he won’t get a fair vote with Metcalfe calling the shots, Frankel is holding off on re-introducing the bill in hopes he can get it assigned to the education, judiciary or labor committees instead. He’s also drafting a same-sex marriage bill, though he sees it as more of a “placeholder” for future debate. Sims hasn’t called for a formal censure against Metcalfe yet. He said he’ll be weighing his options over the next few days. He could seek formal action through an ethics committee recommendation or resolution. “He’s blowing a lot of hot air,” Metcalfe said Saturday. “He’s a liberal Democrat from Philadelphia and I’m a conservative Republican from western Pennsylvania, and we’re going to have a lot of disagreements, and if he takes them all this personally he’s going to have a hard time working in the legislature.”

Crime watch hears about suicide prevention, awareness Monument SMITHFIELD — Suicide is a community problem that can be prevented, said an official from Fayette County Behavioral Health Administration. Using the common flu as an analogy, Bethany Connors emphasized the significance of community involvement and knowledge. “With information and appropriate measures, you can avoid the flu. This information is something we should get to all members of a community,” she said at a recent meeting of the borough’s crime watch. Connors is involved in Community Awareness of Life and Loss (C.A.L.L.), which acts as the county’s suicide prevention task force through the county Behavioral Health Administration. C.A.L.L. was designed to take a comprehensive look at public health approaches and develop


educational programs and policies. It is currently operating in its fifth year. “For a rural community, we’re seeing a lot that we wouldn’t normally see, including factors like child abuse and a lot of drugs,” Connors said. The 2011 coroner’s report indicated that there were 19 known deaths by suicide in the county, she said. Connors focused on target audiences for concern, including veterans and active duty military members and young adults. Numerous factors, including survivor’s guilt and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, play into their vulnerability, she said. “We simply are not doing enough for our military men and women. The tremendous suffering they go through — we need to do a whole lot more for

them,” Connors said, while referring to retired Staff Sergeant Earl Granville and the loss of his military brother to suicide. He recently appeared at a Joint Military Suicide Prevention Symposium in Annville that Connors helped develop. She also focused on school students. “Before it was just at school or on the bus. Now, it’s on their phones and at home — you can’t get away,” Connors said. C.A.L.L., along with nationwide task forces, has implemented antibullying measures, social media intervention and programs to educate and encourage young targets. Councilman Arley Stoker arranged for Connors to speak at the meeting. “We might not know who to call, where to go or what to do,” Stoker said about some reactions to suicide concerns. After reading statistics

on Fayette County, Stoker discovered Connors, who had frequently advocated for mental health awareness in her twenty years in the profession. Stoker and Smithfield Mayor Charles Cieszynski expressed an interest in having Connors back in the fall for special community training called Question, Persuade and Refer (QPR). Representatives would speak to the public on precautionary measures, tactics, statistics and resources. “It’s really the people in the community, in the schools and in the streets that make the difference,” Connors said. “Getting the information out there is the key.” Crime watch meetings are held monthly in the Smithfield Community Center. The council decided to forgo the July meeting and will resume in August.

the basis of a lawsuit brought by the Freedom From Religion Foundation and an anonymous parent and student. FFRF and the two anonymous plaintiffs filed a federal complaint last year, asking for the removal of the monument at the school on the basis that it violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. But speaker after speaker during the dedication argued the Ten Commandments are part of the foundation on which the nation was built. “Thank you for standing up for what America has believed in since its founding,’’ said the Rev. Barry Witt of Faith Bible Church. Dr. Phillip Hadad of the Westmoreland Patriots voiced concern that public displays of the Ten Commandments, Nativity scenes and the Cross have been taken away in recent decades. He told the crowd, “When the founding fathers wrote the Constitution, they didn’t have a problem with it.’’ The Rev. Peter Malik of Teens For Christ said, “If we take them away, we take away the foundation of our country.’’ Speakers included pastors, government officials and members of several grassroots organizations, who offered support for the fight against the lawsuit and the value of the Ten Commandments. Brad Geyer, Connellsville city councilman, noted, “I went to that school, and I passed in front of that stone every day, and I ask you, ‘What’s wrong with that?’’’ Angela Zimmerlink, Fayette County commissioner, talked about conditions in the world and said, “This is not a time to take down the Ten Commandments.’’ The Rev. Gary Schneider of North Ten Mile Baptist Church in Washington County said, “Let’s keep God in America. Let’s keep the Ten Commandments in America. They will serve us well. They always have.’’ Several speakers called out FFRF. Witt said, “The Freedom From Religion Foundation came to Connellsville, Pennsylvania, picking a fight and, yes, they got one.’’ David Show of the Fayette Patriots, said, “Let them try to remove it. We’ll put up 10 more, 20 more, 30-40-50 — whatever it takes.’’ Connellsville businessman Gary Colatch

noted, “Prior to their attack, how many of you remembered the monument was there? This is the first of 14 so far. They turned one into 14. I think they did a pretty good job.’’ The Rev. Robert Lubic, pastor of Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church and administrator of St. John the Evangelist and St. Rita Roman Catholic Churches in Connellsville, also supported the effort but noted, “What’s important is that we live those Ten Commandments.’’ Sister Denise Baker of the United Baptist Church asked spectators to stand and hold the hands of people next to them while she prayed to God, saying, “When everything else is gone, the only thing we’ll have left is your word.’’ Several speakers also spoke up for traditional values. The Rev. Mike Brown of Liberty Baptist Church in North Union Township, said, “We need to start standing up for what is right in this nation and elect men and women of God.’’ The Rev. Ewing Marietta, pastor of Liberty Baptist in North Union Township, noted he grew up in Dunbar and went to school in Connellsville before attending Liberty College and serving in the military. He mentioned his late son, Marcus Marietta, who played sports for the Connellsville Area School District and died from injuries following a car accident in 2009. This first monument was dedicated in honor of Marcus Marietta. Ewing Marietta noted, “Love these children because they are a gift from God.’’ Interviewed before the dedication, Tressler said, “The support they got for this is wonderful.’’ Dave Kuhns, current president, commented, “We stood for freedom of speech, and I’m proud to accept this monument that’s being donated back to us.’’ Timothy, Eagles chaplain, said, “I think it’s been great all along because of the support not only from the community but the counties surrounding us. I don’t see any issue with it. It won’t force religion on anybody. I went to school there, and I knew people who didn’t believe in God, and they didn’t take offense. I believe in God and country.’’ Members of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 21 in Connellsville conducted a 21-gun salute and played taps. They hosted a flagfolding ceremony and gave the flag to the family of Harry Springer, who fought in World War II.

MENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) — Facebook is pulling ads from pages that contain violence or sexual content. The social network said that on Monday, it will expand its definition of pages and groups that

are too controversial to carry advertisements. Facebook has sought to strike a balance between giving its 1.1 billion users the freedom to post what they want and providing advertisers with space to sell

their products. Facebook had already banned ads on certain pages. The new policy will expand on the categories affected by the ban. “We recognize we need to do more to

prevent situations where ads are displayed alongside controversial Pages and Groups,” the company said in a statement Friday. “So we are taking action.” Facebook will continue to remove entire pages if

they are deemed to violate its terms of service. The new policy covers pages that are permitted, but controversial. Facebook said the new restrictions won’t have a meaningful impact on its business.

Accused killer wants medical records reviewed Autopsy shows 4-year-old died from peritonitis BY SUSY KELLY

The attorney for a Point Marion man accused of beating a toddler to death is asking the court to approve funding for him to hire a doctor to examine the alleged victim’s medical records.


Man faces charges in burglary

Patrick Haney Jr., 29, is charged with criminal homicide in the death of 4-year-old Trenton St. Clair and could face a death sentence if he is convicted of first-degree murder. State police contend he beat the boy over several weeks. Haney is the boyfriend of the child’s mother, Heather Forsythe, 29, of Point Marion, who is also charged with criminal homicide. In the request filed Friday, Haney’s court-appointed defense attorney, Jeremy J. Davis,

noted that forensic pathologist Dr. Martina Schmidt conducted the autopsy and determined that the cause of death was peritonitis, an inflammation of the tissue that lines the inner wall of the abdomen, due to battering by a caretaker. “To assist in the preparation of a defense to these charges, it will be necessary for the defendant to secure the services of a medical doctor to explore and review the medical records and photographs pertaining to the victim’s injuries and medical

condition as well as the autopsy report,” Davis wrote. He indicated those services will cost about $220 per hour. Schmidt testified at a hearing held last year that she found more than a dozen areas of bruising and abrasions on the child’s body. The doctor acknowledged under cross-examination that peritonitis could have been caused by a fall down the steps but said that one fall would not cause all of the injuries. At a prior hearing, the emergency room doctor who saw

the boy when he was brought into Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, W.Va., on Sept. 13, 2011, called St. Clair’s case one of the worst cases of abuse she had seen. Police contend Forsythe knew that Haney, who is not the child’s biological father, was beating St. Clair and did nothing to stop him. In addition to homicide, she faces a charge of endangering the welfare of a child. Haney and Forsythe are both scheduled for trial in September.

Andrew Williams, 10, of Connellsville, fires a British Brown Bess musket while wearing a bear helmet under the tutelage of Todd “Ghost in the Head” Johnson.

In 1755, the British and colonial troops were on their way to Fort Duquesne — now Pittsburgh — to force the French from areas along the Ohio River. The mission included traveling 110 miles of undeveloped land by the soldiers, wagons, cannons and other supplies. The re-enactment is traditionally held near the actual spot of Braddock’s crossing. The site was then known, and named on maps, as Stewart’s Crossing. Visitors can also

tour the replica of Col. William Crawford’s log cabin home and spring house that was built near its original spot along the river in 1976 during the U.S. Bicentennial Celebration. The event was started by Hechler in honor of historical society found, the late William Balsley, who had always had a dream of recreating Braddock’s crossing, she said. According to Hechler, this year’s event is a bit smaller due to weather conditions, as rain and

the threat of more rain scared off some of the participants, but she said there’s still plenty to thrill attendees. One such person was 10-year-old Andrew Williams of Connellsville who volunteered to have a bear cub hide placed on his head and draped over his shoulders by historical re-creationist Todd Johnson of McKeesport. Johnson also allowed the boy to fire a powder musket. “I was scared,” was all that Williams said about his experience. Johnson, along with

his companion Aaron Bosnick of Fairmont, W.Va., display bags, animal skins and tools that were used by the natives. Both men wear period garb, including leather loincloth and body jewelry. Johnson wore a silver metal pendant from his nose. During the crossing, Johnson portrays the Huron Indian, “Ghost in the Head,” who attempts to return fire on Braddock and his men. The event continues from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today.

LH school officials explore Daley’s office offers return of furloughed teachers help with state forms gap in the budget Wallace said. He is hopeful to return six furloughed teachers to the district and two custodians. Wallace added that the budget will allow the district to purchase more than $300,000 in textbooks, which has been needed for more than three years, he said. Directors Jamie D’Andria and Bev Beal cast the dissenting votes. Both said they were not in favor of the tax increase, and D’Andria indicated she was not in favor of additional spending in the district. “I firmly believe books don’t educate our students, but teachers do,” said D’Andria. Director Tom Vernon abstained from the budget voting, citing conflict of interest, because he is a candidate for tax collector in North Union Township in the general election in November.

HARRISBURG — State Rep. Peter J. Daley II, D-California, said residents will be afforded free help with state forms and applications in July. Help will be available at the following area locations: 9 a.m. to noon July 11, Center on the Hill, 100 Summit Road, Belle Vernon; and 1-3:30 p.m. July 22 — Marianna/West Beth Public Library, 247 Jefferson Ave., Marianna. A member of Daley’s office staff attends each outreach session to provide assistance. No appointment is necessary. Constituents can receive help filling out forms for PACE or PACENET, the state’s prescription drug assistance programs for senior citizens; the property tax/rent rebate program, which is available to income-qualified seniors, widows, widowers and residents with permanent disabilities; and other state forms and applications. “The deadline to apply for a state rebate on property taxes or rent paid in 2012 has been extended until Dec. 31,” Daley said. “It’s worth checking into because the maximum standard rebate is $650, but supplemental rebates for qualifying homeowners can boost rebates to $975.” Daley is encouraging anyone who might be eligible or who has questions about state programs to attend one of the sessions. “The staff is ready, willing and able to help as many people as possible,” Daley said. Daley’s local offices also are available Monday through Friday to assist constituents. More information is available by calling Daley’s LH, Page B3 Donora office toll-free at 1-800-467-9486.

Under personnel matters, the board gave approval to hire Randy Walker as food service director for a salary of $53,000; the bid of Pam Firmani to serve as cafeteria helper; to hire Jim Crossland to an open maintenance position; to hire Joanna Markle as a middle school French teacher; the retirement of Vicki Mitchell, paraprofessional aide; and the resignation of Kenny Riddell, assistant varsity football coach. In a split decision, the directors approved a district science-engineering teacher to attend a summer training session in Baltimore, Md., for a cost of $3,428. The session is required for teacher, Larry Frank, to teach principles of engineering classes at the high school. Wallace explained

Astrophysicist, activist Margherita Hack dies ROME (AP) — Margherita Hack, an astrophysicist who explained her research on the stars in plain language for the public and who championed civil rights in her native Italy, died on Saturday in the Adriatic Sea town of Trieste, where she had headed an astronomical observatory. She was 91. President Giorgio Napolitano’s condolence message hailed her as a “high-level personality in the world of scientific culture.” “At the same time, she represented a strong example of civil passion, leaving a noble fingerprint in public debate and in the dialogue with citizens,” Napolitano said. The Italian news agency ANSA quoted family friend Marinella Chirico as saying Hack died in a hospital after being treated for heart problems. Hack headed the observatory in Trieste, the first woman to hold that post, from 1964 to 1987, and was a popular and frequent commentator in Italian media about discoveries in astronomy and physics. The current director of the observatory, Stefano Borgani, told Sky TG24 TV that Hack was one of the first astronomers to “have the intuition” that the future of astronomical

observation lay in using space satellites. An atheist who decried Vatican influence on Italian politicians, Hack helped fight a successful battle to legalize abortion in Italy. She unsuccessfully lobbied for the right to euthanasia and also championed gay rights. Among her victories was a campaign against construction of nuclear

reactors in Italy. A vegetarian since childhood, she also was an advocate for animal protection and lived with eight cats and a dog. Hack, an optimist with a cheerful disposition, studied the heavens in the firm belief there was no after-life. “I have no fear of death,” Hack once said in a TV

“With her vanishes not only a great scientist but a free spirit, deeply intellectually honest.” — Emma Bonino, Italy’s foreign minister interview. “While we are here, death isn’t” with us. “When there is death, I won’t be here,” she said. Among the many Twitter comments about her passing was one from an admirer who wrote that Hack was “so great and nice that God will pretend not to exist so as not to upset her,” the Italian news agency LaPresse noted. She liked to joke that the “first and last” time she was in a church was for her marriage to fellow native Florentine Aldo De Rosa, in 1944. She agreed to a church ceremony only because the groom’s parents were very religious. Hack dressed simply in life, including for her own wedding, when she wore an overcoat-turned-inside out for a bridal gown. She and her widower, 93, had no children. Hack enrolled at the University of Florence as a student of literature, but after one class, switched to physics. By the early 1950s, she was an astronomer at the Tuscan city’s astronomical observatory. She was also an athlete,

excelling in track. Specializing in the long jump and high jump from 1939 to 1943, she won national university championships and placed high in national championships. Hack was active in leftwing politics, including most recently supporting the governor of southern Puglia, Nichi Vendola, one of Italy’s few openly gay politicians. “With Margherita Hack’s passing, we lose an authoritative voice in favor of civil rights and equality,” said Fabrizio Marrazzo, a spokesman for a gay advocacy group, Gay Center. “More than once, Hack came out in favor of gay rights, civil unions and the dignity of gay families.” Italy’s foreign minister, Emma Bonino, who as a leader of the tiny Radical Party helped wage battles to legalize divorce and abortion in Italy, said Hack was “an extraordinary figure.” “With her vanishes not only a great scientist but a free spirit, deeply intellectually honest,” ANSA quoted Bonino as saying.

The Rev. Al Sharpton

Book due out this autumn NEW YORK (AP) — The Rev. Al Sharpton is working on a book to be co-released this fall by the publishing arm of Cash Money Records, home to Lil Wayne, with whom Sharpton has feuded over some of the rapper’s lyrics. Sharpton’s “The Rejected Stone” is scheduled for release Oct. 8. The book will be published by Cash Money Content and Massenburg Media, in partnership with the Simon & Schuster imprint Atria.

The book will track Sharpton’s “personal evolution” from New York street activist to political candidate and civil rights spokesman. Sharpton told The Associated Press on Thursday that the book would include his thoughts on Lil Wayne and other rappers and that he was anxious to have a positive dialogue. He added: “Just because we disagree doesn’t mean we have to be disagreeable.”

Art on Yough gets bigger, better By Linda Metz For the Herald-Standard

CONNELLSVILLE — Art on the Yough keeps getting bigger and better. Despite the threat of rain, a sizable crowd gathered Saturday for the sixth annual event located in Yough River Park in Connellsville. Ten artists participated in this year’s event that was held adjacent to and in conjunction with the annual Braddock’s Crossing observance. Among those artists was retired Connellsville High School art teacher Sandy Fee. “I think it’s wonderful,” said Fee, who was selling her unique pieces made of a type of paper-mache.

Second week of Zimmerman trial begins tomorrow SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — The first week of George Zimmerman’s seconddegree murder trial closed Friday. At the start of the week, prosecutors and defense attorneys outlined their cases for the jury of six women. Then prosecutors began putting on their case. Zimmerman is pleading not guilty. He has said he fatally shot 17-yearold Trayvon Martin in February 2012 in self-defense. Beginning Monday, prosecutors will continue presenting their case for a second week. They are likely to call forensic experts and other investigators before defense attorneys get a chance to put on their witnesses. Here are five key moments from the past week. EXPLETIVES AND A KNOCK-KNOCK JOKE Both came in opening statements. Prosecutor John Guy repeated racially charged words Zimmerman allegedly had uttered under his breath to a police dispatcher as he followed Martin. In the courtroom, jaws dropped and spectators looked around at one another.

Defense attorney Don West began his statement with a knock-knock joke about the difficulty of picking a jury in the case. Even he admitted the joke sounded weird. RACHEL JEANTEL VS. DON WEST Jeantel was on the phone with Martin moments before his confrontation with Zimmerman and is considered a key prosecution witnesses. She testified that Martin told her he was being followed by “a creepy-ass cracker.” But it was her testy cross-examination exchanges with West that commanded the most attention. Each asked the other to repeat what they were saying many times. At one moment, Jeantel urged West to move on to his next question: “You can go. You can go.” On her second day on the stand, she seemed more subdued. West asked her, “You feeling OK today? You seem different than yesterday.” ‘GROUND AND POUND’ Even though he was called Friday by the prosecution, John Good, a former neighbor of Zimmerman, gave testimony that seemed to bolster

the defense contention that Martin was on top of Zimmerman in the fight. Good said he saw Martin straddling Zimmerman in manner similar to a mixed-martial art maneuver known as “ground and pound.” 911 CALLS The 911 calls made by neighbors were repeatedly played for jurors. Neighbors asked police to respond as

Some neighbors teared up as they heard their panicked voices. MARTIN’S PARENTS ON RACE Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, Martin’s

parents, held a news conference Thursday in which their attorney said they didn’t want race injected into the trial. Some reporters asked why the nation’s most prominent black civil rights had been invited to Sanford to demand Zimmerman’s arrest if race wasn’t an issue. But attorney Daryl Parks said at this stage of the case, it shouldn’t be a factor.

Third suspect in Steelers lineman stabbing back in Pa. PITTSBURGH (AP) — A third suspect in the late-night stabbing of Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Mike Adams who was apprehended in Florida has been returned to Pennsylvania to face charges in the case. Authorities said 26-year-old Jerrell Whitlock arrived at Pittsburgh police headquarters Friday afternoon. Police said officers in Florida used a stun gun on Whitlock after he tried to flee through a back door in his Gainesville motel room earlier this month. He was being sought on charges of attempted robbery, aggravated assault and conspiracy since Adams was stabbed twice in a June 1 attempted carjacking on Pittsburgh’s South Side.

2010 BP oil spill

Difficult to determine size of spill NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The federal judge presiding over a trial arising from the nation’s worst offshore oil spill said Thursday that it could be difficult to determine how much crude spewed into the Gulf of Mexico from BP’s blownout well in 2010. “That is not an easy task,” U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier noted during a hearing. “There was no meter on that well.” Barbier heard testimony earlier this year for the trial’s first phase about the possible causes of the deadly disaster. Determining how much oil spilled into the Gulf is a topic for the trial’s second phase, set to begin Sept. 16. London-based BP PLC and the federal government have very different estimates on the size of the spill. The federal government estimates more than 200 million gallons spewed from the well, including more than 34 million gallons that were collected. BP expert Martin Blunt, a professor of petroleum engineering at Imperial College in London, claims the government overestimated the size of the spill by 26 to 42 percent. The April 20, 2010, blowout triggered an explosion that killed 11 workers on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig. BP finally stopped the flow of oil after 86 days. Earlier this week, BP placed a full-page advertisement in three of America’s largest newspapers as the company mounted an aggressive campaign to challenge what could be billions of dollars in settlement payouts.

Members of the gallery cheer and chant, Wednesday, as the Texas Senate tries to bring an abortion bill to a vote as time expires, in Austin, Texas. The damage left by the raucous scene of an out-of-control Senate broadcast to world via the Internet and social media has made Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst a target for blame among political rivals within his own party who wonder why the presiding officer of the chamber let it happen.

Dewhurst: Abortion bill won’t fail again GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) — Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst promised Saturday that a bill toughening abortion restrictions would not be derailed again after screaming protesters this week drowned out state senators and ran out the clock on a vote. In a new special session that starts July 1, lawmakers will take up the anti-abortion bill again after failing to pass it by midnight Tuesday. Political rivals have questioned Dewhurst’s leadership in the Senate and blamed him for the bill’s collapse — a chaotic scene broadcast over the Internet. Dewhurst said Saturday after speaking at

the National Right to Life Convention that next time, he’ll move to have protesters thrown out if they become disorderly. He said he had tried to get them out Tuesday, though outnumbered troopers in the Capitol were not seen removing most protesters until the early hours of Wednesday. “Believe me,” Dewhurst told reporters. “I have spent most of my time between about 4 a.m. on Wednesday morning and through yesterday making sure that when I give the order ... to clear the gallery, it gets done.” The bill would place new restrictions on abortion clinics and ban the procedure after the 20th week of pregnancy.

In his speech, Dewhurst ripped the crowds opposing a vote as driven by “hatred” and “mob rule.” He called on antiabortion activists to fill hearing rooms and galleries during the next session as their opponents have done, and use social media to broadcast their support using the hashtag “#stand4life.” As for State Sen. Wendy Davis, whose 11-hour filibuster delayed the vote on the session’s final day and put her in the national spotlight, Dewhurst said, “No human being can talk for two weeks. This bill is going to pass.” He told reporters he would move quickly on the bill to keep it out of “filibuster range.”

Traffic cameras bring tiny Ohio village to a stop Some 70 parishioners, or more than half the congregation at a local church, were ticketed one Sunday last September ELMWOOD PLACE, Ohio (AP) — This little village had a big problem. Each day, thousands of cars — sometimes as many as 18,000 — rolled along Elmwood Place’s streets, crossing the third-of-a-mile town to get to neighboring Cincinnati or major employers in bustling suburbs or heavily traveled Interstate 75. Many zipped by Elmwood Place’s modest homes and small businesses at speeds well above the 25 mph limit. Bedeviled by tight budgets, the police force was undermanned. The situation, villagers feared, was dangerous. Then the cameras were turned on, and all hell broke loose. Like hundreds of other U.S. communities big and small, Elmwood Place hired an outside company to install cameras to record traffic violations and mail out citations. In the first month after the cameras began operating, late last year, 6,600 tickets went out — more than triple the village’s population. Before some unsuspecting drivers realized it, they had racked up multiple $105 citations they would learn about when their mail arrived weeks later. Some 70 parishioners, or more than half the congregation at Our Lady of Lavang Catholic Community Church, were ticketed on one Sunday last September. Soon, there was a Facebook page promoting a boycott of the village, a petition drive against cameras and a lawsuit against the village that threatened to wreck Elmwood Place financially. Four council members resigned. And an atmosphere of distrust and uneasiness hung over a village that traced its roots back to the 19th century, before traffic cameras or even automotive traffic. “I think Elmwood Place tried

Supporters of camera enforcement say they stretch law enforcement resources, and they usually result in safer driving and thus save lives. Opponents see cameras giving governments a way to grab more money from taxpayer pockets, putting local policing in the hands of remote, forprofit companies, and taking society another step toward an Orwellian state of constant surveillance for misbehavior. There are 12 states that ban speed cameras, and nine prohibit red-light cameras. “There is Zeitgeist in the country right now on privacy concerns, concerns about intrusion; we understand that,” said Jonathan Adkins of the Governors Highway Safety Association, which promotes safety nationally through state-level efforts. That group and the Insurance Institute

He returned to Elmwood Place after living in southwest Florida for 20 years; there, he said, redlight cameras, speeding cameras, accident cameras and crime security cameras are commonplace. “You get accustomed to it,” Wilson said.

Atheists unveil monument by Ten Commandments STARKE, Fla. (AP) — A monument to atheism now sits near a granite slab that lists the Ten Commandments outside a courthouse in a conservative north Florida town. The New Jersey-based group American Atheists unveiled the 1,500-bound granite bench Saturday as a counter to the religious monument in what’s called a free speech zone. Group leaders say they believe it’s the first such atheist monument on government property. About 200 people attended the event. Most were atheists, but a few protesters attended as well, including a group with signs that said, “Yankees, Go Home.” The atheists sued to try to have the Ten Commandments removed but dropped the case when they were told they could have a similar monument.

More than 22 million petition Morsi in Egypt Supporters of Egypt’s Islamist President Mohammed Morsi armed by sticks and shields to protect from stone attack guard their protesting site at a public square outside the Rabia el-Adawiya mosque near the presidential palace in Cairo, Saturday.

Civil unrest reflects growing split; Morsi offers no concessions CAIRO (AP) — More than 22 million Egyptians have signed a petition calling for the country’s Islamist president to step down, the youth group leading the signature campaign said Saturday on the eve of mass protests aimed at forcing Mohammed Morsi from office. The planned demonstrations, which could plunge Egypt once again into a dangerous round of civil unrest, reflect the growing polarization of the nation since Morsi took power, with the president and his Islamist allies in one camp and seculars, liberals, moderate Muslims and Christians on the other. Already, clashes across a string of cities north of Cairo over the past week have left at least seven people dead, including an American, and hundreds injured, and there are deep-rooted fears in the country that Sunday’s protests will turn violent and quickly spiral out of control. On Saturday, an Associated Press reporter saw Morsi supporters at a Cairo sit-in doing military-style fitness drills, with some wearing homemade body armor and construction helmets and carrying sticks. They said they had no intention of attacking opposition protesters, and would only act in self-defense or to protect the presidential palace. The Tamarod, or Rebel, youth movement says its petition is evidence of the widespread dissatisfaction with Morsi’s administration, and has used the signature drive as the focal point of its call for millions of people to take to the streets Sunday to demand the president’s ouster. Mahmoud Badr, a Tamarod leader, told reporters Saturday

Associated Press

“Who guarantees that those who signed [the petition] were not paid to sign?” — Ahmed Seif Islam Hassan al-Banna Muslim Brotherhood member a total of 22,134,460 Egyptians have signed the petition. He did not say whether there had been an independent audit of the signatures. Morsi’s supporters, who have long doubted the validity and authenticity of the collected signatures, expressed skepticism about the final count. “How do we trust the petitions?” asked Brotherhood member Ahmed Seif Islam Hassan al-Banna. “Who guarantees that those who signed were not paid to sign?” If authenticated, the collection of so many signatures would deal a symbolic blow to Morsi’s mandate and put in stark terms the popular frustrations with an administration that critics say has failed to effectively deal with the country’s pressing problems, including tenuous security, inflation, power cuts and high unemployment. Tamarod, which began its campaign with the goal of

collecting more signatures than the 13 million votes Morsi garnered in his 2012 election win, announced its final tally the day before protests that organizers vow will bring millions into the streets to push the president from power. Egypt has been roiled by political unrest in the two years since the uprising that ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak, but the round of protests set to kick off Sunday promises to be the largest and holds the potential to be the bloodiest yet. In the past week alone, at least seven people have been killed in clashes between the president’s supporters and opponents in cities in the Nile Delta, while on Friday protesters ransacked and torched as least five Brotherhood offices across the country. Adding to the tension, eight lawmakers from the country’s interim legislature announced their resignation Saturday to protest Morsi’s policies. The

270-seat chamber was elected early last year by less than 10 percent of Egypt’s eligible voters, and is dominated by Islamists who support Morsi. With a sense of doom hanging over the country, Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi last Sunday gave the president and his opponents a week to reach a compromise and warned that the military would intervene to prevent the nation from entering a “dark tunnel.” It was the strongest expression of the military’s discontent with conditions in the nation since Morsi took office a year ago. The opposition, feeling that Morsi may be on the ropes and frustrated by past offers of dialogue that proved to be mostly symbolic, has shown no inclination to compromise, and Morsi offered no concessions to his opponents when he addressed the nation for 2 ½ hours on Wednesday. As the country waits to see what transpires Sunday, thousands of supporters and opponents of the embattled president held rival sit-ins Saturday in separate parts of the capital. With expectations of violence running high, the military has dispatched troops backed by armored personnel carriers to

reinforce military bases on the outskirts of cities expected to be flashpoints. In Cairo, the additional forces were deployed to military facilities in the suburbs and outlying districts. Army troops are also moving to reinforce police guarding the city’s prisons to prevent a repeat of the nearly half dozen jail breaks during the chaos of the 2011 uprising. Hard-line Islamists loyal to Morsi have repeatedly vowed to “smash” the protesters, arguing that they were a front for loyalists of Hosni Mubarak, the autocrat ousted in Egypt’s 2011 revolt, determined to undermine Morsi’s rule. They also say that Morsi is a freely elected president who must serve out his four-year term before he can be replaced in an election. Many Egyptians fear the new round of unrest could trigger a collapse in law and order similar to the one that occurred during the 2011 revolt. Already, residents in some of the residential compounds and neighborhoods to the west of the city are reporting gunmen showing up to demand protection money or risk being robbed. The police, who have yet to fully take back the streets after they disappeared in unclear circumstances in 2011, have stepped up patrols on the outskirts of the city, ostensibly to prevent weapons and ammunition from coming into the city to be used in the case of an outbreak of violence. The army is advertising hotlines for civilians to call if they run into trouble. In the latest reminder of the near lawlessness that has plagued the Sinai Peninsula bordering Gaza and Israel since the 2011 revolt, a senior security official officer was assassinated Saturday in the coastal city of el-Arish as he arrived home from work. Police Brig. Mohammed Tolbah was instantly killed and his driver seriously injured.

Statham showcases acting range in ‘Redemption’ NEW YORK (AP) — With the success of his own franchise films like “The Transporter” and “Crank,” as well as being a part of “The Expendables” and newly added to the “Fast and Furious” series, Jason Statham is a bonafide action star. But with his latest film, “Redemption,” the actor shows his acting range by playing a homeless soldier on the streets of London. Statham says he was drawn to the role because of its writer, Steven Knight, who penned the London underbelly dramas, “Eastern Promises,” and “Dirty Pretty Things.” The 45-year-old is hoping to add another dimension to his movie career, which began in 1998 when director Guy Ritchie discovered him selling perfume and jewelry on the streets of London. AP: What did you learn about homeless soldiers while doing this film? Statham: We sat with ex-soldiers and they told us how difficult it was to come back. They told us stories about their friends, how they lost an eye, how they lost limbs. How do you expect to get a job with a disability? You’ve been shown how to shoot a gun or operate a weapon, but all of these things are of no use anymore. ... We found a lot of soldiers end up on the street because they find it easier to exist there. They can function

because it’s almost like a frontier between what’s legal and illegal and find a way to do something that they were good at. AP: Steven wrote “Eastern Promises.” Did you agree to do this film providing there wasn’t a naked fight scene in a sauna? Statham: (Laughs) That was a great fight. ... I admire it, but I don’t want to be in it. AP: You were once a diver for the British national team. How did that translate to action star? Statham: It was a hobby





and I went in a couple competitions. Within a year I’m on the British team and I’m running around the world (in) competition. It’s a 10meter platform, you’re throwing yourself around. You’re doing spins and twists and you know you get to visit countries you never get to visit and you compete with all

the nationalities around the world. It’s a giggle. It’s not something I ever thought I would do anything with. I just wasted 10 years on it that’s all. I think people think that’s my calling card which it never was. AP: When (Sylvester) Stallone called you for “The Expendables,” was it like getting accepted

into the all-star game of action stars? Statham: Of course. I’m from the U.K. (laughs.) There’s no big action stars out there and for me to get the invite was a great thing. It’s a big privilege to be part of the cinema icons. .. There’s no one on the planet that doesn’t recognize the man (Stallone) so to be asked to come to the party is a big privilege and you can never overlook that great sort of invite. AP: With basically you and James Bond as the country’s action stars, how are you perceived in the U.K.? Statham: I have no clue (laughs). I wouldn’t know. Let’s see. ... They’ll review this and we’ll see what they think of it. I don’t know. I really don’t know. Sometimes you don’t know what the critic wants to see, whether they like what I do, whether they don’t. There’s always going to be a fair amount of people that don’t like what I do and an amount of people that do. I think at the end of the day it’s about what the audience

likes. .. The world’s a big place and if people are going to see the films, we’re only making it for the audience. We’re not making it for people that don’t pay to go see it. It’s nice to have good things written about you but it’s not good to get carried away because you can inflate your head to such a degree to think you’re something that you’re not. Constructive criticism is good but if it’s done with a poisonous ink then I’m not so keen. AP: After building a career on action films, what other kind of role would you take? Statham: I’d love to do an action comedy. I’d love to anything — if it’s good, and the quality is good and the director is smart and the producer is a clever chap and everybody is working together. It has to fit me. It’s no good for me to do so radically different that I’m going to look ... I’m going to regret that. There’s no point. ——— Online:



Kerry conducts shuttle Mideast diplomacy NY makes

pitch to LGBTs

NEW YORK (AP) — New York state is making a pitch for gay visitors with a new “I Love NY LGBT” tourism website. Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the campaign Saturday as lesbian and gay New Yorkers celebrated pride weekend. Cuomo said the website will help lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender travelers plan their vacations by suggesting mustsee destinations. The website will offer lists of LGBT events and resources throughout the state New York is also promoting itself as a samesex wedding destination since the state legalized gay marriage in 2011. The new tourism campaign will be represented by the familiar “I Love NY” logo with a rainbowcolored heart.

More sever ties to Deen NEW YORK (AP) — The exodus continues. Sears, J.C. Penney and Walgreen said Friday that they’re cutting ties with Paula Deen, adding to the growing list of companies severing their relationship following revelations that the chef used racial slurs in the past. QVC took a more gentle approach on Friday and announced that it has decided to “take a pause” from Deen. They said that Deen won’t be appearing on any upcoming broadcasts and will phase out her product assortment on its online sales channels over the next few months. “We all think it’s important, at this moment, for Paula, to concentrate on responding to the allegations against her,” said Mike George, QVC’s president and CEO in a letter posted on the company’s website. But QVC left the door open for Deen to return. “Some of you wonder whether this is a ‘forever’ decision — whether we are simply ending our association with Paula,” continued George. “We don’t think that’s how relationships work. People deserve second chances.”

Meeting with Israeli, Palestinian camps

JERUSALEM (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry kept up his frenetic Mideast diplomacy Saturday, shuttling again between Palestinian and Israeli leaders in hopes of restarting peace talks. Kerry met for two hours with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Amman, Jordan in what was their second set of discussions in two days. He planned more talks in the evening with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem after the two held two meetings over the past two days. U.S., Israeli and Palestinian officials have declined to disclose details of the talks. “Working hard,” is all Kerry would say when a reporter asked him before the latest Abbas meeting whether he was making progress. Kerry, who is on a twoweek swing through the Mideast and Asia, has conducted the meetings at a breakneck pace. He even cancelled a stop in Abu Dhabi because of extended discussions on the Mideast peace process. He had a four-hour dinner meeting with Netanyahu Thursday night in Jerusalem followed by a more than two-hour lunch with Abbas on Friday in Amman at the home of the Palestinian ambassador to Jordan. Then it was back to Jerusalem for another meeting with Netanyahu and dinner with Israeli President Shimon Peres. On Saturday morning, he boarded a helicopter to fly back to Amman to meet again with Abbas, this time at the Palestinian president’s residence there.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, left, meets with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas for the second time in Amman, Jordan, on Saturday after shuttling to Jordan from Jerusalem in the morning. On his fifth trip to the Middle East, Kerry met with Abbas for the second time in two days as he continues a rushed round of shuttle diplomacy to restart talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Later Saturday, he was to return to Jerusalem to meet with Netanyahu, Tzipi Livni, Israel’s chief negotiator with the Palestinians, and Isaac Molho, a Netanyahu envoy. Kerry is scheduled to leave Jerusalem on Sunday to head to Brunei for a Southeast Asia security conference. There is deep skepticism that Kerry can get the two sides to agree on a two-state solution, something that has eluded presidents and diplomats for years. But the flurry of meetings has heightened expectations that the two sides can be convinced to at least restart talks, which broke down in 2008. So far, there have been no public signs that the two sides are narrowing their differences. In the past, Abbas has said he won’t negotiate unless Israel stops

Vegas tourism officials partner with Kimmel LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas tourism officials are partnering with a famous former resident’s show to trumpet the town. Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority officials say an online video series and on-air promotions will start Friday during late-night comedy show Jimmy Kimmel Live. The spots feature a character named Vegasdotcom who’s constantly mistaken for the travel website by the same name.

building settlements on war-won lands or accepts its 1967 lines — before the capture of the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem in a Mideast war that year — as a starting point for border talks. The Palestinians claim all three areas for their future state. Netanyahu has rejected the Palestinian demands, saying there should be no pre-conditions for talks. Abbas made significant progress with Netanyahu’s predecessor, Ehud Olmert, in talks in 2007 and 2008, but believes there is little point in negotiating with the current Israeli leader. Netanyahu has adopted much tougher starting positions than Olmert, refusing to recognize Israel’s pre-1967 frontier as a baseline for border talks and saying east Jerusalem, the Palestinians’ hoped-for capital, is off

the table. Abbas and his aides suspect Netanyahu wants to resume talks for the sake of negotiating and creating a diplomatic shield for Israel, not in order to reach an agreement. Abbas has much to lose domestically if he drops his demands that Netanyahu either freeze

settlement building or recognize the 1967 frontier as a starting point before talks can resume. Netanyahu has rejected both demands. A majority of Palestinians, disappointed after 20 years of fruitless negotiations with Israel, opposes a return to talks on Netanyahu’s terms.

Pirates playing .600 ball for first time since 1991 By John Perrotto For the Herald-Standard

PITTSBURGH — Today is the first day of July and the Pirates have a “6” at the start of their winning percentage. It has been 22 years since the Pirates could say that. They were 45-27 for a .625 winning percentage on the morning of July 1, 1991. The Pirates were 49-30 for a .620 winning percentage going into Saturday night’s game against Milwaukee at PNC Park. That was also the best record in the major leagues. Just four other times since 1960 have the Pirates played .600 ball through the first three months of the season — 1960 (42-25, .627), 1971 (49-29, .628), 1972 (40-25, .615) and 1975 (45-29, .608). The Pirates went to the postseason each of those previous five times, winning the World Series in 1960 and 1971, and losing in the National League Championship Series in 1972, 1975 and 1991. The Pirates, of course, haven’t been to the postseason since 1992 or even had a winning season since then. Of the 52 teams who have played .600 or better through June 30 since the three-division era began in 1994, 43 have gone to the playoffs — 83 percent — according to research by Baseball Prospectus’ Andrew Koo. n When left-hander Jeff Locke starts on Tuesday night against Philadelphia at PNC Park,

he will have a chance to make some history. Locke, who is 7-1, has gone 14 starts since his lone loss of the season April 7 against the Dodgers at Los Angeles. If he doesn’t lose Tuesday, he will tie the Pirates’ single-season record of 15 starts without a loss set by Dock Ellis from May 2-July 22, 1971. The overall club record is 17 by Jim Weaver from July 26, 1936-Aug. 8, 1937. Rip Sewell also had a 15-game streak that spanned the 1948-49 seasons. Locke’s ERA is 2.06, which is fourth-best preAll-Star break mark in Pirates’ history among pitchers with at least 75 innings since 1933, the year of the All-Star Game’s inception. He trails only Vern Law (1.70 in 1965), Bob Veale (1.90 in 1968) and Bob Friend (1.98 in 1963). n The Pirates signed top draft pick Austin Meadows on Friday. The 18-year-old outfielder from Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga., was the ninth overall pick. He gets a signing bonus of $3,029,600, which is the slot value assigned to the pick. “It’s overwhelming,” Meadows said. “I’ve been playing baseball since I was a 3 years old and I’ve wanted to be a big leaguer since I was 3. Now I’m getting the opportunity to play professional baseball and it’s really exciting.” Meadows was assigned to the rookie-level Gulf Coast League Pirates. He hit .535 this spring for Grayson with four home runs, 14 doubles, a triple and 28 RBI.

He finished off a 63 in the morning and backed it up with another 63 in the afternoon. Duffy Waldorf was third at 11 under after rounds of 67 and 66.

AT&T National BETHESDA, Md. — A triple bogey for Bill Haas. Double bogeys for Andres Romero and Roberto Castro. They still wound up in a four-way tie for the lead in the AT&T National with James Driscoll, whose third round was pleasantly dull by comparison.

Rohanna misses cut by a stroke in second US Women’s Open By Jim Downey

Too bad the USGA doesn’t sell mulligans before each round of the U.S. Women’s Open. Rachel Rohanna could have used one Friday on the next-tolast hole of her second round. Rohanna had a poor tee shot into No. 17, a 164-yard par-3, that morphed into a triplebogey 6. She finished with a 5-over 77 for a two-round total of 7-over 151. To make matters worse, Rohanna had to sleep on the round and hope a handful of the 42 golfers still on the course when the second round was suspended because of fog would have poor finishes. When the fog cleared and the second round was completed early Saturday morning, Rohanna missed the cut at 6-over 150 by one stroke. Rohanna was sitting at 5-over with two holes remaining Friday, as the wind picked up and the fog was just starting to roll in. “The golf gods were against me, today,” Rohanna explained after her round Friday. “I hit one bad shot, only one bad shot. I missed it right into a waste bunker. I had a decent lie, but hit it thin. “I can’t find my ball. It nestled in a hole in the fescue. I thought it was on a drain, but it was just in a hole. I had to take an unplayable lie. It was a difficult chip. “I missed a 20-footer on the edge. It all started from a bad tee shot.” The weather was warm, and the winds calm during Thursday’s first round, but things turned in Friday’s second round. “I couldn’t aim much left of the pin,” Rohanna said of

the affect the wind had on her tee shot on the fateful hole. “I could tell as soon as I hit (the tee shot), it was the first miss I had all week. “There was still a chance it would hit and roll down. Unfortunately, it stayed up.” Rohanna had a rousing start with her early afternoon tee time with a par on No. 1, a 383yard par-4. “No. 1 was probably the best par I’ve had in my life,” said Rohanna. She birdied No. 4, a 318-yard par-4, but promptly gave that stroke, plus one more, back over the next two holes with back-to-back bogeys. “I didn’t hit bad shots. On No. 5, I missed an up-and-down, and on No. 6, I had a threeputt,” explained Rohanna, who also had a bogey on No. 9 to go out in 2-over 37. “I felt I still had some birdies in me,” Rohanna said of her approach to the back nine. She came through with a birdie on No. 10, a 342-yard par-4, but gave the stroke right back with a bogey on No. 11 (par-4, 411). Even after a bogey on No. 14 (par-4, 434), Rohanna was still inside the expected cut at 5-over. “I had no idea what the cut was. I figured it was going to be higher,” said Rohanna, who was decked out in a bright orange shirt and red shorts. “The course played real tough today.” The course stats bear out her assessment with only nine under-par rounds in the clubhouse. Inbee Park, who finished in the fog, had one of those under-par rounds, a 4-under 68, for the lead at 9-under 135. Rohanna recovered on her final hole with a birdie on the 545-yard par-5.

“I was looking for an eagle. I left my driver out of the bag, but I thought if I get a good 3-wood out there I could reach the green in two,” said Rohanna. “My tee shot went into a bunker. I hit out to 100 yards (from the green) and finished with birdie.” Like a missed free throw in the waning moments of a close basketball game, Rohanna points to the missed opportunities earlier in the round that placed her in what seems to be a precarious position. “I missed two or three 4-footers. The short putts didn’t fall like they usually do,” said Rohanna. “If I was just trying to make the cut, then I could say that (about the triple bogey). I had some putts I should’ve made. There’s a couple shots I wish I had back.” Every golfer leaves shots on the course, but Rohanna was pleased with her second U.S. Open. “I played the course exactly how I wanted to. I couldn’t have played this course any better.” Now, she turns her attention to another life event — her wedding on Saturday to Ethan Virgili. “I wish it was a better ending for the week, but I have better things to look forward to in the next seven days,” Rohanna said Saturday. DIVOTS: Rohanna played the par-3s in 3-over (or evenpar save her triple bogey), as well as the par-4s. Her birdie on No. 18 allowed her to play the par-5s in 1-under. ... She hit 12-of-14 fairways, the same number she hit in the first round, and 11-of-18 greens in regulation. ... Rohanna had 33 putts in the second round, as compared to 31 on Thursday. ... Rohanna had one of the six eagles in the first round.

Time with Senior golfers quite an experience By Mike Dudurich For the Herald-Standard

FOX CHAPEL — Spending a week with 81 of the best senior golfers in the world at the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship at Fox Chapel Golf Club has been quite an experience. We have marveled at the way the Champions Tour players hit the ball. We marveled at the way they can do things with hybrid clubs that recreational golfers can only dream of. They hit them high and long and make them land softly on the green. They are, for the most part, true gentlemen of the game, the second generation of great players who followed the path on the Champions Tour that was laid by the greatest players of all time like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. But they’re all over 50 and those who are over that age know what happens when the numbers to start add up: things start to ache that never ached before. Muscles suddenly spasm and strain more quickly than they used to. And guess what? Three of those guys with the most significant back problems were on the leaderboard as the sun shone brightly on Fox Chapel Saturday. Fred Couples, who threatened to run away with the third of fifth majors as the second round finished around 10 a.m. He’s had major back issues since he came out onto the PGA Tour and has managed to dodge surgery, but is always iffy at best when it comes to playing with much regularity. John Huston is a more recent addition to the BBA (Back Backs of America) but he’s really struggled recently and there he is not taking a back step to Couples at all. Fred Funk is another guy who has had protracted back problems and has really suffered in the last few weeks. He said earlier in the week he should have withdrawn in his last tournament and almost pulled out of the Constellation Energy on Wednesday during the middle of the pro-am. The morale of this story? These guys are making a very difficult game look very easy week-in and week-out with bodies that aren’t supposed to be able to do that. And that make it look so effortless.

Couples has perhaps the most fluid swing the game has ever seen, unless you go back to the day of Sam Snead, who was pretty smooth in his day. Part of that swing is because of the way he swings naturally, the other part is making adjustments to make sure he’s able to swing another day. Huston, who leads the Champions Tour in driving distance (Couples is second), suffered significantly enough at the Senior PGA Championship two weeks ago that he withdrew from the Senior PGA Championship in St. Louis. “I’ve had the normal bad back we all get, but this is a bit more serious,” Huston said. “I used to heal a lot quicker, but that doesn’t happen anymore.” He’s on a new regime of exercise and training that he’s hopeful is going to start showing benefits soon. Funk has also struggled with back issues, but they have ramped up considerably as the season has gone forward and hit their worst at the Senior PGA Championship when he said he should have pulled out, but tried to play through it. And then we got to Fox Chapel, in the middle of Wednesday’s nine-hole pro-am event, he almost pulled the plug again. “I’ve really been fighting my back for a while and I had an MRI done and it’s not a structural problem, it’s a muscle spasm that won’t release,” he said. “I’m taking medicine and doing everything I can to get the thing to release. All I know is that right now, it’s pretty painful.” Funk said pain has prevented him from fully extending on his follow-through, which obviously cuts down on the things he can do with the golf ball. “It’s just one of those things we have to figure out,” Funk said. And the amazing thing, they do week after week after week. There was a particularly telling shot on the telecast Saturday. It should Couples and Huston, standing on the 17th tee, both stretching their backs. If you have an interesting story about your club or course or an individual, let me know.

and eliminated Feliciano Lopez of Spain 4-6, 6-2, 7-5, 6-4. How certain was Lisicki that she would be dealing with Williams and not Date-Krumm? Lisicki tweeted a photo of her with Haas early in the second set of Williams’ match, writing: “Last Germans standing” and “We both play the no1’s next.” Take a glance around, and a high seeding has mattered very little, with the notable exception of No. 2 Andy Murray, Djokovic’s potential foe in the final. Indeed, in many cases, any seeding at all has guaranteed nothing whatsoever. The men’s Nos. 3, 5, 6, 9 and 10 are all gone, including Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, with their 29 combined Grand Slam titles. The women’s Nos. 2, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 10 are out, too, including four-time major champion Maria Sharapova and two-time Australian Open winner Victoria Azarenka. Even during a pair of victories Saturday, both No. 4-seeded players, David Ferrer and Agnieszka Rawdwanska, looked shaky. Ferrer, the French Open runner-up this month, was treated for blisters on his right foot while coming back to beat No. 26 Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine 6-7 (6), 7-6 (2), 2-6, 6-1, 6-2. Radwanska, who lost to Williams in last year’s Wimbledon final,

on her third shot rolled into the bunker when it should have put her in position for a birdie putt. She still led by three strokes but appeared vulnerable — at least by her recently lofty standards. “That bogey was a bad bogey,” Park said, “so after that I really got my concentration going.” She was unlucky then lucky on the par-4 14th. She thought her second shot would be pushed back by the wind, but it carried too far and settled on the ridge above the hole. No worries: Park simply holed a 30-foot, downhill putt for birdie. “That was a big putt for me,” she said. “Those three bogeys were very tough to handle in the kind of situation that I was in.” A hole later, she made a 15-foot birdie putt. It looked as though nobody would break par for the day until she birdied No. 18. Only five players were under par for the tournament. England’s Jodi Ewart Shadoff (74) was third at 3 under. She had to play 21 holes Saturday after the second round was suspended the night before because of fog. Park had good timing Friday: Her group was on the 18th fairway when the horn sounded, so she was able to finish off her round and rest up for the weekend. Not a morning person, Ewart Shadoff didn’t enjoy waking up at 4:30 a.m. She birdied the 18th hole to earn a spot in the final group with Park and Kim, then took a nap in the four-plus hours between rounds. Ewart Shadoff had a chance to make things interesting on No. 12 with Park on the way to a bogey. But her long birdie putt slid over the hole, and she missed the par putt. Instead of pulling within two strokes of Park, Ewart Shadoff remained


was pushed to three sets by 18-year-old American Madison Keys before winning 7-5, 4-6, 6-3. “I’m very happy to be a little bit better,” Radwanska said. “It was really close. Every set was really tight.” The highest-seeded man other than Murray on his half of the field is No. 20 Mikhail Youzhny, who will play the 2012 U.S. Open champion and Wimbledon runner-up after defeating Viktor Troicki 6-3, 6-4, 7-5. Otherwise, Saturday’s winners on that side of the men’s draw were 130thranked Lukasz Kubot of Poland, who beat No. 25 Benoit Paire 6-1, 6-3, 6-4; 80th-ranked Kenny de Schepper of France, who defeated No. 22 Juan Monaco 6-4, 7-6 (8), 6-4; and 54th-ranked Fernando Verdasco of Spain, a 6-2, 6-4, 6-4 winner against Ernests Gulbis. Things have generally been less hectic on Djokovic’s portion of the tournament, but No. 9 Richard Gasquet lost 7-6 (7), 5-7, 7-5, 7-6 (5) to 20-year-old Bernard Tomic, whose father has been barred from tournaments after being accused of head-butting Tomic’s hitting partner. No. 23 Andreas Seppi of Italy, meanwhile, won his seventh consecutive five-setter, edging No. 12 Kei Nishikori 3-6, 6-2, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-4, and 49th-ranked Ivan Dodig of Croatia moved on when Igor Sijsling retired while trailing 6-0, 6-1, 1-0, the 13th player to stop midmatch or withdraw before one, equaling a tournament high.

four back. Then she bogeyed two of the last three holes. Kim had a double bogey on No. 3 to fall back. She played 1 under the rest of the way, but that one bad hole allowed Park to put some distance between them. “She is playing great. But you never know, I might have a great day tomorrow,” Kim said. “So golf is a different thing than other sports. That’s why you play four rounds.” If Park shoots even-par or better Sunday, it will be just the fourth time the U.S. Women’s Open was won with a score in double digits below par. No wonder Brittany Lincicome joked to reporters, “I think Inbee’s playing a different golf course, which you guys are unaware of yet.” Certainly feels that way. With Park again on a different plane from the rest of the field, the biggest excitement Saturday might have come when Jessica Korda fired her caddie after nine holes and replaced him with her boyfriend. The switch seemed to work: After shooting 5 over on the front nine, Korda was 1 under the rest of the way. She finished with a 76 and was tied for sixth at 1 over, 11 strokes behind Park. The 2008 U.S. Women’s Open champion, Park has already won five times this year, including her last two tournaments. “I’m just going to think that I.K. and I am tied starting in tomorrow’s play because anything can happen out here,” she said. “I mean, four shots, it could be nothing around this golf course. So I just have to keep pushing myself to make pars. I think par is going to be good enough tomorrow, but I’m just going to try to do my best. A lot of thinking going on, a lot of pressure. “But I’ve done that before, so I think the experience is going to help me going through it tomorrow.”


Mayhem marks start of 100th Tour de France BASTIA, Corsica (AP) — Riders at the Tour de France know to expect the unexpected. But nothing could have prepared them for the mayhem that turned Saturday’s first stage of the 100th Tour into a demolition derby on two wheels. Seemingly for the first time at the 110-year-old race, one of the big buses that carry the teams around France when they’re not on their bikes got stuck at the finish line, literally wedged under scaffolding, unable to move. The timing couldn’t have been worse: The blockage happened as the speeding peloton was racing for home, less than 12 miles out. Fearing the worst — a possible collision between 198 riders and the bus — race organizers took the split-second decision to shorten the race. Word went out to riders over their radios and they adapted tactics accordingly, cranking up their speed another notch to be first to the new line, now 1.8 miles closer than originally planned. Then, somewhat miraculously, the bus for the Orica Greenedge team wriggled free. So organizers reverted to Plan A. Again over the radios, word went out to by-now confused riders and teams that the race would finish as first intended — on a long straightaway

alongside the shimmering turquoise Mediterranean, where an expectant crowd waited to cheer the first stage winner of the 100th Tour. Then, bam! Two riders collided and one of them went down, setting off a chain of spills that scythed through the pack like a bowling ball. And this was just Day One. The bad news for riders: They’ve still got another 20 stages and1,982 more miles to survive to the finish in Paris. Keeping his head and riding his luck amid the chaos, Marcel Kittel sprinted for the win,

claiming the first yellow jersey. “It feels like I have gold on my shoulders,” said the German rider for the Argos-Shimano team. The 22 teams know from experience that the first days of any Tour are always tough. Everyone is nervous, full of energy and jostling for position. Adding to the stress this year is the race start in Corsica. The island’s winding and often narrow roads that snake along idyllic coastlines and over jagged mountains are superbly telegenic but a worry for race favorites — the likes of Team Sky’s

Chris Froome and twotime former champion Alberto Contador — because a fall or big loss of time here could ruin their Tour before it really begins. Froome survived Day One more or less unscathed. Contador didn’t. The Spaniard, back at the Tour after a doping ban which also cost him his 2010 victory, crossed the line grimacing in pain, his left shoulder cut and bruised. He was tangled in the crash that threw about 20 riders to the tarmac. Contador said he’ll be sore for a few days, “but I still have enough time to recover.”

Ledecky wins three races at nationals INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Katie Ledecky took on the most grueling challenge of her swimming career and won three times. This week might be only the warm-up. The Maryland swimmer pulled away in the women’s 1,500-meter freestyle final Saturday, winning in 15 minutes, 47.15 seconds, posting the fourth fastest time in world history and shattering the one of the oldest long-course championship records in the American book. Janet Evans set the previous mark in March 1988 when she finished in 15:52.10. Twenty-five years, two months, three days later, Ledecky cut that time by nearly 5 full seconds to win another U.S. national title and give herself a chance to become the first American woman to swim the four longest freestyle events at a world championship. “I’m very happy with that time and it’s a good way to finish the meet,” Ledecky said. It can’t get much better. Ledecky competed in four races at the IUPUI Natatorium, winning national championships in the three longest events — the 400, 800 and 1,500 free — in astoundingly easy fashion. She beat Sutton, one of her 2012 Olympic teammates, by 0.83 seconds in the 800 free Tuesday. Ledecky is the reigning Olympic gold medalist in that event.

She coated to another easy win, 2½ seconds over Sutton in the 400 free Friday. Ledecky’s time of 4:04.05 was a personal best and the third best in the world this year. Then Saturday, she was under world-record pace for the first 600. Though she faded over the final 900, she still broke Evans’ mark and produced the world’s fastest time of the year just one day after Jazmin Carlin of Britain went 15:47.26. Ledecky was so far ahead when the race ended, she had time to look at the scoreboard, pump her fist and still watch the rest of the field trying to reach the wall. Chloe Sutton was second in 16:07.75, an astounding victory margin of 20.6 seconds. The only minor blemish on an otherwise perfect week was Wednesday’s second-place finish in the 200 free, finishing behind America’s other teenage star, Missy Franklin, and ahead of another Olympic gold medalist, Shannon Vreeland. What will Ledecky do for an encore? Perhaps compete in the 200, 400, 800 and 1,500 free at Barcelona next month. The last American woman to try anything close was Shirley Babashoff, who competed in the 200, 400 and 800 at the 1975 worlds and the 1976 Olympics. The 1,500 was only added to the women’s competition in 2001, and no American has tried to do all four on the world stage. Now it’s up to Ledecky

and her coach, Bruce Gemmell, to decide. “Mainly, it’s just the schedule, making sure it’s manageable,” Ledecky said. Ledecky’s strong showing was just one chapter of a remarkable night that included record-breaking chases and incredible comebacks. Natalie Coughlin, the 30-year-old three-time Olympian, barely won the 50 free title over a rising star nearly half her age. Coughlin finished in 24.97 seconds. Sixteen-yearold Simone Manuel was second in 25.01 seconds, breaking the national age group record for the second time in one day — a record Franklin had held. “My start was not as good as it could be and because I knew that it wasn’t as strong of a start, instead of doing 10 kicks, I only did eight,” she said. “I was hoping to be faster, but I get to go to worlds, so that’s good.” The winners of each event automatically qualify for the world championships next month. Nathan Adrian started the week by winning the 100 free and ended it by taking the men’s 50 free title in a race that featured five Olympians including American record-holder Cullen Jones. Adrian won in 21.47 seconds, tying Garrett WeberGale’s long-course championship record and posting the world’s best time of the year. Anthony Ervin (21.70) and Josh Schneider (21.87) were

second and third with times that also cracked the world’s top 10. “It felt great,” Adrian said. “I’m happy to go my best time because that’s what it’s all about. I hadn’t done a best time in the 50 since ‘09.” The night’s other feature attraction was Ryan Lochte, the world record-holder in the 200 individual medley. He was just 0.12 seconds off that pace after 150 meters but faded over the final 50 and settled for his third win of the week in 1:55.44. Conor Dwyer finished second in 1:57.74. Lochte, the Florida resident, expected more. “I’m kind of bummed with my performance at this meet,” Lochte said after telling the crowd he doesn’t watch the clock. “I know I’m capable of going a lot faster than that, but that’s been the story of this meet for me. I’ve been going out and holding on for dear life.” With Franklin pulling out of the women’s 200 IM, Caitlin Leverenz captured her first title of the week in 2:10.13. Elizabeth Beisel was second in 2:12.11 with Melanie Margalis was third in 2:12.34. And Connor Jaeger pulled off a sweep of the men’s longest distance events by winning the 800 free in U.S. Open record time of 7:47.27. Michael McBroom finished second in 7:14.13 — a time that would have been good enough to break the U.S. Open mark. They finished one-two in the 1,500 on Tuesday, too.



USA Hockey selects Bylsma As coach for 2014 Olympic team

Two main issues stall Letang re-signing


Dan Bylsma has never coached hockey at the international level. The Pittsburgh Penguins coach does, however, know how to win while juggling a roster dotted with superstars. That was good enough for USA Hockey to select Bylsma as coach of the U.S. Olympic men’s hockey team at the 2014 Winter Olympics on Saturday, hoping the free-flowing style he teaches translates well to the wider rinks that await in Sochi, Russia in February. The 42-year-old Michigan native didn’t hide from the glaring hole in his resume moments after being introduced. When asked how he was going to build on his limited experience in international coaching, Bylsma quickly offered a correction. “I don’t have any experience,” Bylsma said with a laugh. “So ‘very little’ is wrong.” The next eight months should take care of that as the U.S. vies for its first gold medal since the “Miracle on Ice” in 1980. The U.S. won silver in 2002 at Salt Lake City and was runnerup to Canada in Vancouver three years ago, losing 3-2 in overtime when Penguins star Sidney Crosby beat U.S. goaltender Ryan Miller 7:40 into the extra session. Bylsma, who won the 2009 Stanley Cup with Crosby, was watching the game from a restaurant when he saw his captain take a pass from Jarome Iginla and race in on Miller to produce one of the most iconic moments in the history of the sport. “I got off of my chair because I had a pretty good notion he was going to put that home for

the win,” Bylsma said. Bylsma’s appointment was announced before the NHL has officially decided to take a break next season to allow its players to participate. NHL officials will meet with the players’ association, the International Olympic Committee and International Ice Hockey Federation in New York on Monday to iron out an agreement that would free up its players to compete in Sochi. Once approved, Bylsma will have to find a way to slow down Crosby and 2012 NHL MVP Evgeni Malkin, who is expected to play for his native Russia. “I’m also a little bit concerned (Crosby) knows me as a coach, my strengths and my weaknesses he’s going to bring that to the attention of the Canadian team,” Bylsma said. Nashville Predators general manager David Poile, who will serve in the same capacity for

Sochi, called Bylsma “one of the very best coaches in the league.” Bylsma played nine years as a defensive-minded forward for the Los Angeles and Anaheim from 1995-2004 before moving into coaching. He replaced Michel Therrien as Penguins’ coach in February 2009 and guided Pittsburgh to the third championship in franchise history. He won the Jack Adams Award as the NHL Coach of the Year in 2011 and helped the Penguins post the best record in the Eastern Conference during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season. Pittsburgh advanced to the conference finals before being swept by the Boston Bruins. The Penguins rewarded Bylsma with a two-year contract extension through 2017 a week after their season ended. The process of building the Olympic team will begin with

an orientation camp in Washington D.C. in late August. Poile expects the core of the team that won silver in Vancouver to return but allowed changes need to be made. The U.S. has historically struggled in Olympic competition overseas. The last time the U.S. team medaled at an Olympics outside of North America came in 1972 when it won silver in Sapporo, Japan and hasn’t medaled at an Olympics in Europe since 1956. “We can’t be the same type of team because we haven’t had success over there,” Poile said. Bylsma’s system should help. The Penguins are regularly among the highest scoring teams in the NHL thanks in part to a talented core and a style of play that focuses on puck control and pressure. It’s made Pittsburgh one of the most feared teams in the league. Now Bylsma hopes to do the same in the Olympics.

Columbus Avalanche looking at their options has three first-round draft picks BY DAN GELSTON AP Sports Writer

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — On the crisp February day when Jarmo Kekalainen took the job as general manager of the Columbus Blue Jackets, he almost licked his lips in anticipation of rebuilding the club with its three first-round draft picks. Based on the records at the time, the last-place Blue Jackets would have had three of the top 12 selections, including the best shot at the No. 1 overall pick. They owned picks from the New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings, both of which were then out of the playoff race. A lot has changed since then. Just 5-12-2 on Feb. 26, the Blue Jackets went 19-5-5 the rest of the way and came within a point of making the playoffs. The Rangers and Kings did make the postseason, dropping the value of the picks Columbus held. Now instead of injecting fresh blood into what was not so long ago a dying franchise, now Kekalainen may just use those once precious picks to get immediate help. Kekalainen is keeping his options open. But he’s also sounding out trading partners. “We have some immediate needs, too, so rather than waiting for free agency, we might be trying to trade one or two of the picks if we can find the right player to fit on our team,” he said. “Right now.” The Blue Jackets think their core is already pretty strong. “I’m excited about where we’re going to go from here,” forward Nick Foligno said after the season. “Everyone’s looking forward to that, seeing what we can do next year. It’s going to get harder, though. We’ve now made a name for ourselves and we’re going to expect the best from everybody. We have to step up our game that much more.”

The Colorado Avalanche own the top pick in the NHL draft and a whole lot of options. Nathan MacKinnon and Seth Jones. Jonathan Drouin and Aleksander Barkov. They are the top candidates to go first Sunday at the Prudential Center. Colorado won the draft lottery and has flirted with the idea of picking a puckmoving defenseman in Jones. But it appears the Avalanche are leaning toward choosing a forward, perhaps the 17-yearold MacKinnon. MacKinnon, a 6-foot, 182pound center, is a solid twoway presence with strong hands and stick-handling and skating skills. He is considered a natural scorer and a very good puck distributor. Of course, Colorado could also decide to trade the pick to the Florida Panthers, who are slated to pick second, or to the Tampa Bay Lightning at No. 3, or even farther down to another club that is looking to make a splash and shoot to the top. There is plenty of talent available, and this draft pool has already been touted as the best in a decade. This year’s prospects have been favorably compared to the last blockbuster draft in 2003. Marc-Andre Fleury, Eric Staal, Jeff Carter and Mike Richards highlighted that first round 10 years ago. Patrice Bergeron and Shea Weber went in the second round, and future All-Stars and Stanley Cup champions dotted the list of a loaded draft. Fast forward to now and there is a new group of prospects vying to become as well known and decorated as some of today’s stars. MacKinnon, Jones, Drouin, and Barkov are likely to be taken in the top four. Given the track record of defensemen at No. 1, the Avalanche could play it safe and

nab an elite forward instead. “As far as MacKinnon, I could tell you he’s a heck of a player. Jones is a heck of a player,” Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said. “It’s the same thing with Drouin. They’re all premier players in the future for the NHL.” Fair or not to Jones, teams are skittish about taking a defenseman first. The last defenseman selected No. 1 was Erik Johnson by St. Louis in 2006. Johnson, who now plays for Colorado, had only four points in 31 games this season and has never lived up to his top billing. Only 12 defensemen have gone No. 1, and Denis Potvin (1973, New York Islanders) is the only one to make the Hockey Hall of Fame. The Avalanche could make it 13 after winning the draft lottery for the first time. Jones has deep roots with the Avalanche, dating to the early part of last decade when his father, former NBA forward Popeye Jones, struck up a friendship with Joe Sakic and Roy when they all played in Colorado. Sakic is now the Avalanche’s executive vice president of hockey operations, and Roy is the club’s new coach. Jones, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound defenseman, could become the first American picked No. 1 since Chicago’s Patrick Kane in 2007 and the seventh overall. In a sport in which the majority percentage of players are white, it is that slice of history he would make as the first black selected No. 1 — topping Evander Kane, who was picked fourth in 2009. “Seth could be that poster child for USA hockey,” Popeye Jones said. It would make for a unique cultural twist if an American was picked No. 1 in the NHL days after Anthony Bennett of Canada was selected first by Cleveland in the NBA draft. “We still have a high amount of interest in him,” Rick Pracey, Colorado’s director of amateur scouting, said of Jones.

Jones enters the draft as the top-ranked player on the NHL Central Scouting’s final list of North American skaters. Even as praise is heaped on him, Jones knows scouts believe he has only scratched the surface of his potential. “They’d like to see the shot improve a little bit, be a little more physical, those kinds of things,” Pracey said. The Avalanche, however, appear to have narrowed their focus on MacKinnon. “He’s a player that has been front and center all year, and he continues to be so,” Pracey said. “He is a player that has withstood the pressures of a draft year, withstood the pressures of high expectations and the comparable that he’s been held accountable to, not only this year but the past couple of years.” MacKinnon spent this past season with Halifax of the QMJHL and had 32 goals and 43 assists in 44 games. He scored 11 goals and had 22 assists in 17 playoff games. “I think seeing that push and seeing him elevate his game and carry a team to a championship and then into the Memorial Cup is special,” Pracey said. “Having this player handle the distractions and the media and all the scrutiny that goes with being a top player and then being able to perform and raise his game, are all key, key qualities.” After Florida and Tampa Bay, Nashville and Carolina round out the top five. All seven rounds will be held on the same day for the first time since 2006. The next decade will tell if this class was worth the hype. “It is certainly one of the better ones probably in the last couple of years in terms of overall depth,” Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said. “Compared to ‘03, it’d be difficult, now. You look back at those players, there was a lot of impact players from that draft. “So, that’s probably for future debate,” Holmgren said.

PITTSBURGH — Money and a no-trade clause are the main issues in the effort to re-sign defenseman Kris Letang. But are bruised feelings part of the equation, too? According to published reports, Letang’s camp has rejected the Pittsburgh Penguins’ offer of an eight-year contract that would pay him about $7 million per season. That would effectively double Letang’s current annual salary. Apparently Letang would like at least $500,000 more per season, and perhaps as much as $1 million more for each year. There’s still the stumbling block of a no-movement clause, which the Penguins don’t want to give him. There are also reports that Letang has been bothered by media coverage suggesting that he wasn’t the Penguins’ best defenseman last season. That designation has apparently gone to Paul Martin. That evaluation wasn’t made in a vacuum. If it’s been reported, it undoubtedly came from within the Penguins’ organization. The team analyzes every aspect of the game, using video to observe the work of every player. The staff can break down every shift over the course of a season and grade the players’ performance. It’s not hard to believe that Martin would grade better than Letang, even though Letang has more raw talent than Martin does. Martin plays a smart and conservative game. He’s where he’s supposed to be, and he doesn’t take reckless chances. Letang’s game can be spectacular because of his speed and skill. It can also be dangerous. He’ll try to pass the puck through the middle of the ice, which is usually a mistake in the systems the Penguins play. Letang is also prone to take off on an offensive rush, abandoning his defensive responsibility, at least momentarily. That kind of gamble can result in a great scoring chance. It can also leave the Penguins vulnerable to a counter-attack. When the coaches log the video, Letang gets a demerit for his high-risk tactics. Hard to believe that a tough hockey player would be bothered by criticism, but apparently Letang is upset with the Penguins. Is that an impediment to a deal? Doubtful it’s as important as the financial component. Letang is only 26, so this is his big chance to set himself up for life. Does that future include the Penguins? That’s starting to seem less likely.  Some fans seem to think that Letang should take a discount to stay with the Penguins. Why? People like to think of the Penguins as a regular contender for the Stanley Cup, but other teams have been winning. It’s been four years since the Penguins claimed their championship. The Chicago Blackhawks have won twice. The Boston Bruins have been to the Final twice. Clearly, there are other attractive options available. Sidney Crosby has taken less than market value to stay in Pittsburgh, but his circumstances are different. Crosby has already been earning nearly $9 million in salary. He has endorsement deals that make up for any shortfall in his salary. The circumstances are completely different.



outdoors Williams bags 19-pound turkey

Energy leases to generate $4.7 million in revenue By Pennsylvania Game Commission

Zachary Williams, 16, of Hopwood, bagged a 19-pound turkey while hunting with his father Jay. The turkey had a 9¾-inch beard.

The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners approved lease agreements Tuesday with energy companies that will bring in nearly $4.7 million in bonus payments, and a yet undetermined amount of royalties. Nearly all of the lease agreements result from requests by companies that have strong leaseholds in the surrounding areas, and already are in possession of the energy rights on Game Commission properties. The agreements ensure the fuels are extracted with little to no surface impacts on game lands. The agreements are: — A lease with Range Resources Appalachia LLC for oil-and-gas development on a 62.6-acre portion of State Game Lands 117 in Washington County. The $2,500 per acre bonus payment is worth $156,500, and the commission is to receive 19 percent in royalties from fuels that are sold. — A lease with Southwestern Energy Production Co., of Houston, Texas, for oil-and-gas development across 736.2 acres on State Game Lands 175 in Susquehanna County. The $3,000 per acre bonus payment is worth $2,208,600 and the commission is to receive 20 percent in royalties for the fuels that are sold. — A lease with Southwestern Energy Production Co., of Houston, Texas, for oil-and gas development on a 774-acre portion of State Game Lands 35 in Susquehanna County. The $3,000 per acre bonus payment is worth $2,322,000 and the commission is to receive 20 percent royalty for fuels that are sold. — A lease with Robindale Energy Service Inc., of Armagh, Pa., to mine and remove approximately 64 acres of coal rights in Beccaria Township, Clearfield County. While the coal rights on the property are owned

by the Game Commission, the property on which the mining would occur is privately owned. The five-year agreement sets royalties at either 6 percent of freight-on-board pit price or $2.50 per ton – whichever is greater – for coal that is sold and has a BTU value of 10,000 or greater. Royalties are set at 6 percent for coal that is sold and has a BTU value of less than 10,000. Freight-onboard price, or F.O.B., is the price for which coal is sold at the pit. BOARD REMOVES LATE FEE FOR LICENSING AGENTS: Less oversight needed for automated system; penalty no longer necessary Agents who issue hunter and furtaker licenses in Pennsylvania no longer will need to pay a $100 late fee if they miss the deadline to apply. The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners said it’s no longer necessary to assess a late fee because the automated system of selling licenses is easier to administer. Under the old system, ample time was needed to create agents’ accounts and coordinate the shipment of hunting licenses before the start of the new license year With the automated system, licenses no longer are shipped to agents. In giving approval to the matter, the commissioners said continuing to assess the late fee created an unnecessary burden on issuing agents. While the late fee was removed, the March 31 deadline by which agents are to apply ahead of the new license year (which typically begins July 1) remains unchanged. The commissioners also added language to the amendment stating there’s no guarantee that those who apply late to become agents will be approved for sales by the July 1 start of the license year.

PGC tables changes to feral swine regulations By Pennsylvania Game Commission

Legislation signed into law on Monday prompted a vote Tuesday by the Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners to put on hold any changes to regulations for feral swine and wild boars. The commissioners at their January meeting proposed regulatory changes for feral swine and wild boars, which do not occur naturally in Pennsylvania, but sometimes escape to the wild from fenced hunting preserves. The action was based on the conclusion that escaped and feral swine are destructive to native wildlife species and their habitats, and pose health

risks and other threats. The animals are prolific breeders and can quickly establish wild populations once escaped. The proposed rulemaking, which was tabled today by a unanimous vote of the commissioners, included the statewide removal of protection for feral swine and wild boars. It also called for a ban on the importation of wild boars and feral swine, then, a year later, for making it illegal to possess the animals. The commissioners indicated they would take more time reviewing the issue, considering that Gov. Tom Corbett on Monday signed into law state Senate Bill No. 644, which amends the definition of “wild

animals” to remove any species of swine held in captivity. The change in definition placed the authority solely with the state Department of Agriculture to manage captive Pennsylvania swine. Meanwhile, an executive order remains in place that allows hunters statewide to take any feral swine and wild boar they might encounter in the wild. Feral swine can be taken with any lawful firearm, bow, crossbow, or by trapping. All takings of feral swine and wild boars must be reported to the local Game Commission Region Office within 24 hours of the kill. The carcasses of all feral swine and wild boars taken must made available to the commission for disease sampling.

Meadows, Pirates agree on contract

Best record in baseball

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Pirates signed top draft pick Austin Meadows on Friday. The 18-year-old outfielder from Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga., was the ninth overall pick.

“It’s overwhelming,” Meadows said. “I’ve been playing baseball since I was a 3 years old and I’ve wanted to be a big leaguer since I was 3. Now I’m getting the opportunity to play professional baseball and it’s really exciting.”

Associated Press

Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen drives a pitch by Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Mike Gonzalez for a home run in the eighth inning of Friday’s game in Pittsburgh. The Pirates won 10-3.

Cole overcomes rocky start Friday in Pirates’ 10-3 win PITTSBURGH (AP) — Gerrit Cole overcame a rocky start to become the first Pirates pitcher to win his first four career starts in more than a century and Starling Marte missed the cycle a few feet short of a home run in Pittsburgh’s 10-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. Cole (4-0) gave up three runs in the first inning but no more as he made it through six innings, allowing eight hits with three walks and three strikeouts. Nick Maddox started 4-0 in his first four starts in 1907. Johnny Hellweg (0-1) failed to get out of the second inning in his major league debut, giving up seven runs — five earned — in 1 2-3 innings. Marte had a double and triple among his three hits, and just missed a homer in the eighth when he flied out to deep center field. Andrew McCutchen had three hits, including his ninth home run, and three RBIs for Pittsburgh. Pedro Alvarez added two hits and Neil Walker hit a two-run double to start a seven-run second inning in which the Pirates sent 12 batters to the plate.

Alvarez extended his hitting streak to 11 games. Ryan Reid pitched three scoreless innings for his first career save. Carlos Gomez, who missed the previous three games with a sprained right shoulder, had two hits for the Brewers. Jean Segura and Juan Francisco also had two hits apiece. Rickie Weeks ran his hitting streak to 13 games. Walker’s double got the Pirates to 3-2, scoring Garrett Jones and Alvarez, who led off with singles. The Pirates then loaded the bases as Hellweg walked Travis Snider and Cole around a groundout by Jordy Mercer. Marte then singled home Walker with the tying run. The Pirates went ahead when Russell Martin followed by hitting a grounder up the middle that Segura, the shortstop, misplayed for an error, allowing Snider and Cole to score. McCutchen and Alvarez followed with RBI singles to knock the 6-foot-9 Hellweg from the game. The Brewers jumped on Cole for three quick runs in the top of the first.

New park located along Great Allegheny Passage, Youghiogheny River BY STEVE FERRIS

DUNBAR TWP. — Jim Shumar of Uniontown didn’t plan on getting into the recreation business when he bought a former Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad yard in Dickerson Run a few years ago. After discovering that the well water he intended to use for a fish farm wasn’t conducive to growing walleye and perch, he turned his business sights to the recreational opportunities that draw people from all over the country to the Great Allegheny Passage and Youghiogheny River, which border the property. Shumar recently opened Youghqua Park Riverfront Station where he hopes to attract bicycling and water sports enthusiasts. “We’re open. That was a big thing,” Shumar said about the unexpected change in his business plan.


He rents bicycles, kayaks and stand-up paddle boards; offers primitive tent camping; and plans to expand on the property that stretches 65

acres beginning at the Route 819 bridge. The bikes and kayaks can be used in combined trips. People could ride bikes 5.5 miles

You can purchase animals bred and raised locally by our area youth. That is yet another way to reinvest back into our community. The fair is probably the biggest local event of the whole year in Fayette County, and I’ll be talking about the fair more as it draws closer as we are planning to have Buy Local Day on Aug. 2.

Vatican official arrested in plot VATICAN CITY (AP) — A Vatican official was arrested Friday by Italian police for allegedly trying to bring $26 million in cash into the country from Switzerland aboard an Italian government plane, his lawyer said. Monsignor Nunzio Scarano, already under investigation in a purported money-laundering plot involving the Vatican bank, is accused of fraud, corruption and slander stemming from the plot, which never got off the ground, attorney Silverio Sica told The Associated Press. It was the latest financial scandal to hit the Vatican and came just two days after Pope Francis created a commission of inquiry into the Vatican bank to get to the bottom of the problems that have plagued it for decades and contributed to damaging the Vatican’s reputation. Sica said Scarano was a middleman in the Swiss operation. Friends had asked him to intervene with a broker, Giovanni Carenzio, to return $26 million they had given him to invest. Sica said Scarano persuaded Carenzio to return the money, and an Italian secret service agent, Giovanni Maria Zito, went to Switzerland to bring the cash back aboard an Italian government aircraft. Such a move would presumably prevent any reporting of the money coming into Italy. The operation failed because Carenzio reneged on the deal, Sica said. Zito, nevertheless, demanded his $520,000 commission. Scarano paid him an initial $260,000 by check, Sica said. But in a bid to not have the second installment of the commission deposited, Scarano filed a report for a missing 200,000 check, even though he knew

Monsignor Nunzio Scarano, a recently suspended accountant in one of the Vatican’s main financial departments, is accused of fraud, corruption and slander stemming from a plot which never got off the ground, attorney Silverio Sica told Associated Press.

Zito had it, Sica said. Carenzio and Zito also were arrested Wednesday along with Scarano, Sica said. When asked how Scarano responded to the accusations, Sica said “I think that Don Nunzio will respond to the questions.” It’s not the only troubles facing Scarano. Prosecutors in the southern city of Salerno have placed him under investigation for alleged money-laundering stemming from his account at the Vatican’s bank, called the Institute for Religious Works, or IOR. The investigation concerns transactions Scarano, then an official at the Administration for the

To deposit the money into an Italian bank account — and to prevent family members from finding out he had such a large chunk of cash — he asked 56 close friends to accept $13,000 apiece in cash in exchange for a check or money transfer in the same amount, Sica said earlier this week. Scarano was then able to deposit the amounts in his Italian account. “He declares himself absolutely innocent,” Sica said of the Salerno investigation.

Twitter is quickly becoming a gold mine for businesses looking to improve their marketing. A new study predicts that as the social media tool matures, more people will likely be consuming content on Twitter rather than producing it, making it a prime vehicle for advertising. The study found that, as people gain more Twitter followers, they tweet less. Co-authors Andrew T. Stephen, an assistant professor of marketing at University of Pittsburgh, and Olivier Toubia, a business business at Columbia University, believee this means that Twitter users care more about the number of followers they have than about disseminating their beliefs. This, they claim, means as Twitter continues to grow, it may become less interactive and more of an advertising broadcast medium. ‘’The implication is that as people get more followers over time ... they’re essentially going to be listening more,” Stephen said. “They’re probably paying attention to whatever accounts or users they’re following.” In a world where more than 90 percent of the top 100 brands in the world have a Twitter account, this information may be crucial for businesses trying to get a leg up in the business world,

Stephen added. Besides using their Twitter accounts to advertise products, businesses are tapping celebrities to sneak name recognition into the Twittersphere. The professors’ study predicts that businesses will be able to capitalize on Twitter even more in the future. They identified approximately 2,500 Twitter users and gradually increased their followers by 100. For those who originally had only 13 to 26 followers, the uptick in followers also increased their Twitter activity. But those who originally had 62 to 245 followers actually tweeted less as their followers increased. Stephen and Toubia theorize that the reason for decreased tweeting is that once Twitter users achieve a certain level of status, they are determined to preserve it. Stephen said he imagines that people, perhaps subconsciously, come to the conclusion, “I’ve got so many followers now, that’s exciting, so I’m not going to risk it by posting something they don’t like.” Some Twitter users interviewed by a reporter said the study’s results were consistent with their Twitter experience. Lauren Agnoli,, a student at Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pa., said that she logs onto Twitter frequently, but she does not tweet very often herself. But others said that their personal experience doesn’t match

the study’s conclusions. Kenan Stewart, a student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who tweets jokes, strange everyday occurrences or hometown festivals, said that the number of followers he has does not affect the amount he tweets. Nik Ker, owner of Ker Communications, an Internet marketing agency in Pittsburgh, said that although he has observed more businesses using Twitter to communicate with followers, many have yet to use it for pure advertising. Tim McLaughlin, one of the partners at 321 Blink, a Pittsburgh company that helps businesses gain visibility through social media, video and Web development, believes that Facebook is a more effective way for businesses to communicate with the public. With Facebook, messages can be longer than the 140 character maximum for tweets. Even so, there are signs that Twitter as a medium is growing in popularity, while Facebook is ebbing, particularly with younger audiences. ‘’We go around to some of the local high schools and we’ll teach a couple classes on social media and literally, when we ask them about Facebook, they’re like, ‘It’s dead to me,’ “ McLaughlin said. “Why? It’s because their mom and dad are on it, so they don’t want to be on it.”

The April revision represented a decrease of 20 million pounds from last month’s preliminary production estimate.

Police give new details on truck-train collision ROSEDALE, Md. (AP) — A trash hauler whose collision with a train set off a fiery explosion May 28 would have been able to see for more than half a mile up and down the rail line if he had stopped before crossing the tracks near his business in Rosedale, a police investigator reported. The wreck and the chemical explosion critically injured the truck driver, rattled windows miles away and sent a plume of black and gray smoke high into the air. Truck driver John Alban Jr. said he slowed his truck, which he was operating at 10 mph as he approached the crossing shortly after 2 p.m., according to the report issued by Baltimore County police on Friday. Alban, owner of Alban Waste LLC, said he had made several trips from his

nearby business on May 28 before the crash with a CSX freight train. Alban told police he did not hear the train’s warning horn. The report says the train engineer’s

video recorded the horn sounding when the truck appeared and continued through impact. The report said Alban fell through the shattered rear window of the truck,

indicating he was not wearing a seat belt. He was hospitalized for days after the accident. Police interviewed Alban on June 19 at his home. He told police he was talking

on his Bluetooth phone connector while heading to the crossing. Alban said as he was crossing the tracks, he heard the train’s horn and looked up just as he was hit.

The Associated Press has been unable to reach Alban despite repeated calls to his home. Police announced Thursday seven traffic charges against Alban.

Blaming Manchin, Beretta turns down W.Va. overtures Background checks for potential gun consumers major concern CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — An executive of gun maker Beretta USA said Friday the company turned down offers from officials and groups in West Virginia to relocate to the state because of U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin’s role in the gun control debate. Jeffrey Reh, general counsel and vice-general manager, cited comments from the West Virginia Democrat targeting high-capacity ammunition magazines. He said the company also has concerns with a provision in the measure Manchin has co-sponsored with Sen. Patrick Toomey, a Pennsylvania Republican, to expand gun-buyer background checks to gun shows and Internet sales. Beretta, based in Accokeek, Md., believes Manchin has joined forces with Sen. Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat and vocal gun control advocate, leading the company to question whether “West Virginia was as pro-gun as we thought,” Reh said. “That really caused us some consternation and concern,” Reh said. “We’ve decided not to consider West Virginia as a site for future expansion.” Calling himself “a proud owner of two Beretta shotguns,” Manchin said Friday he was “truly disappointed in this cheap political shot their management has taken.” “It’s shameful that Beretta, who seems to have

no intention of moving from one of the most gun restrictive states in the country, is deceiving the great people of West Virginia in attempting to score a political point,” Manchin, a former governor, said in a statement. Manchin has also tangled with the National Rifle Association. Both Manchin and the NRA have launched dueling TV ads as he seeks additional support for the background check proposal, which failed to advance in an April vote. Then-House Speaker Rick Thompson, a Democrat, was among those who wrote Beretta earlier this year after it said it would consider moving operations out of Maryland, which has since enacted a strict gun control law. Among other provisions, it limits ammunition magazines and bans the in-state sale of 45 types of assault weapons, including models made by Beretta. Beretta has two other companies in Maryland that import or sell firearms, and together its holdings employ about 400 people in the state. In his appeal, Thompson had cited West Virginia’s high gun ownership rate and said his state does not support the sort of gun control measures seen in Maryland. The Legislature passed several gun rights measures during this year’s session. Thompson championed this approach before stepping

down to head the state’s Department of Veterans’ Assistance. Background checks are meant to prevent criminals and the seriously mentally ill from purchasing firearms, but are mandated only for sales handled by licensed gun dealers. Among its provisions, the Manchin-Toomey proposal would exempt non-commercial transactions such as sales between friends and relatives. Manchin on Friday defended the measure as a commonsense and reasonable approach “that in no way infringes on our right to bear arms.” Reh said he and executives from other firearms makers met with Manchin to discuss his proposal the day it stalled. Reh said they “had a very friendly but clear discussion,” but that he questioned a “very problematic” provision that gave gun shows priority for accessing the background check system. Reh said that would stymie retailers both large and small on weekends, when dozens of gun shows are held throughout the country. “The bill as drafted could have effectively prohibited checks at retail outlets,” Reh said. Manchin “felt that there was a way to work around that, but I haven’t figured out what that would be.” Reh said he has responded to each of the dozen or so West Virginia overtures to his company. Other states courting Beretta include Virginia, Texas and Utah.

German-Masontown Library Now that summer reading time is upon us, one question that the library is often asked is, “What is the difference between Storytime and the Summer Reading Program?” Preschool Storytime is our ongoing program for children ages 3 to 5 who have not yet started kindergarten. At 10:30 a.m. every Tuesday we have Preschool Storytime. We read stories, sing songs, do crafts and have a light snack. You do not need to register, you just drop in. Because of the young age of the child, caregivers are asked to stay and assist their child. For elementary students, we put on a Summer Reading Program. This year our program, “Dig Into Reading,” runs weekly from July 10 through Aug. 14. Because space is limited, you do need to register your child for this program. The Summer Reading Program encourages children to keep reading during the summer months and helps to keep children from losing skills gained during the school year. We have incentives to keep your child reading and will have an awards ceremony on the last day of the program. This program is run by a retired teacher. For more information, call the GermanMasontown Public Library at 724-583-7030.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Walking in the woods near the Big Bear cabin, Hope came upon mystery man Wyatt, who was nude. Hope took photos of Wyatt then ran away, but fell and was knocked unconscious. Wyatt got Hope to the cabin and revived her with a kiss. Hope was surprised when Wyatt later showed up on her doorstep. Bill urged Liam to go after Steffy and find out why she walked out on him. Caroline arranged for Maya to audition with Carter for a show that Rafael is working on. Maya was thrilled that she got the part opposite Carter. Katie planned a birthday party for Brooke. Taylor suspects Brooke wants Eric. DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Jennifer was stunned when the police arrested J.J. for his role in a fight over a girl and for having stolen prescription pads in his backpack. Not wanting to go to jail, J.J. played on Jennifer’s motherly feelings and got her to use her friendship with Abe to keep him out of the pokey. Daniel, however, didn’t fall for J.J.’s lies. Eric passed out after Kristen drugged him with the potion she got from Dr. Chyka. After Eric regained consciousness, Kristen videotaped him “making love” to her and then ran from his hotel room when he passed out again. Nicole came close to seeing Kristen leave her own room when she went into Eric’s room and found him unconscious. Later, Kristen was furious when Dr. Chyka said something went awry with the drug and Eric could possibly remember everything that happened to him. Abigail agreed not to tell anyone that Chad has a video of Sami attacking Bernardi. GENERAL HOSPITAL: In a video shot before Luke killed her, Helena told Luke that she had replaced his earring with one that contained a radioactive toxin that is going to

Joe and Paulette Nick celebrate 40 years of marriage today. Their daughter-in-law Krissy has arranged a party for them. Joe is a former resident of Jefferson Township and a member of Frazier’s class of 1965. The couple resides in California, Pa. Aimee and Barry Shoaf celebrate their anniversary on Friday.

Talk to most performers and they’ll tell you how they dreamed of making it big since childhood. Modelturned-actor Nathan Owens (Cameron Davis, “Days of our Lives”) isn’t one of them. “Acting wasn’t even a goal — neither was modeling,” confesses Owens. “My sister Anissa was actually the one who suggested I get into this.” Owens was happily working in corporate America, as a sales rep for Verizon Wireless, when his sister convinced him to get some pictures taken. Owens obliged, sent them off to the Ford Modeling Agency in San Francisco, and the rest is history. “That’s how this life started,” says Owens with a smile. “Then, I decided to give acting a try. I got into class, got a manager and started going on auditions. It’s as simple as that.” Owens got his big break when he was cast as Cameron on “Days,” replacing Schuyler Yancey, who created the role. “I was a little nervous at first,” Owens admits. “I knew people had developed relationships with (Schuyler), and I didn’t want to step on any toes. Plus, sometimes it’s hard to adjust to someone new in a role. So I just tried to

is well-known for his role of Gary Ewing on both “Dallas” and “Knots Landing.” He also played Raymond Gordon on “Another World.” The good news for fans of online soaps “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” is that production company Prospect Park has settled its labor dispute with a stagehands’ union over the production budgets for the online soaps. With their new two-day-a-week schedule for both shows, Prospect Park had enough episodes taped to cover the planned-for summer hiatus, but the union dispute caused production to halt a couple weeks earlier than expected. The settlement means that both soaps will go back into production as scheduled on Aug. 12. The pre-taped episodes will take the shows through September with no interruptions. Tyler Christopher, who returned to “General Hospital” as Nikolas

Cassadine during the show’s 50th anniversary celebration, recently notified his fans that he has signed a contract with the show, so he and Nikolas will be sticking around Port Charles. Also on “GH,” Constance Towers makes a “spiritual” return this week as the deceased Helena Cassadine. Since Luke (Anthony Geary) shot and killed her, it’s possible her astral visit to Port Charles could involve him. Congratulations to Eden Riegel and her husband, actor Andrew Miller, who have announced they are expecting their second child. Riegel had a large fan following when she played Erica’s daughter Bianca Montgomery on “All My Children.” She was last seen as Heather Stevens on “The Young and the Restless.” The couple has a 2-year-old son, Jack.

kill him. Helena said there is a cure, but Luke has to find it or he will die. Ellie found an antidote for the toxin but Luke refused to use it. Anna and Dante found the gun Shawn threw in the dump, but realized a second shooter actually shot Olivia. Shawn and Carly were relieved that the bullet removed from Olivia didn’t match the gun (Shawn’s) from the dump. Shawn and Carly later found the bullet from his gun lodged in a planter, proving he didn’t shoot Olivia. Ava suddenly remembered firing a rifle with a silencer at Franco (at the same time Shawn fired). Elizabeth confronted A.J. after hearing a recording Nikolas bought from Tracy in which A.J. admitted sleeping with Carly. A.J. later asked Elizabeth to forgive him. Lulu and Dante learned that Maxie is having “their” baby girl. THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Leslie and Neil told Avery that Gus left half his estate to his children and the other half to a mystery woman, Rose Turner. Leslie found a photo of Rose in Gus’ safe deposit box. Avery agreed to look for Rose, and a former neighbor agreed to tell Leslie what she knows about Rose. In Chicago on business, Phyllis answered Kyle’s phone when Summer called and let her think she was waiting for Kyle to get out of the shower. Phyllis hopes to discourage Summer’s interest in Kyle. Summer worried that Phyllis will try to convince Kyle not to date her. Dylan painted “Will you marry me?” on the wall and Chelsea later painted “Yes” on the wall. Anita would like Chelsea to be with Adam — because he has money. Chloe taunted Adam about Dylan and Chelsea’s engagement. Kevin returned everything he had stolen, but Chloe said their marriage is over. Chloe told Abby that she’s not having an affair with Billy.

play it as gently as I could.” Along the way, his goal was to bring as much of himself to the role as he could, notably his “humor” and way of dealing with people. He’d also like to add “an edgier” side to the character. “I think it would be fun to explore that.” In the interim, Owens, who’s had the challenging task of playing a doctor by day and stripper by night, says that his main goal has been being seen as something more than just a pretty face and a hard body. “Growing up, my mom taught us that it was literally brains first,” notes Owens. “You had to be a good person and also a smart person. That’s how I’ve pretty much modeled myself. So I would love for ‘Days’ fans to see me as more than that.” Of course, Owens also hopes “Days” fans support his on-screen pairing with Kate Mansi (Abigail), which has been developing slowly but steadily. “Kate is awesome,” boasts Owens. “Working with her has been great. She’s so professional and has a great work ethic. We’re getting better, as far as working together as a team, every day. We’re friends off-camera, which makes it easier to develop chemistry as characters. I can’t wait to see where things are headed next.”



US agency sues Corzine over failure of MF Global US agency files civil charges against Corzine over 2011 failure of brokerage MF Global WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal regulators have accused former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine of misusing customer money while he was CEO of brokerage firm MF Global, which collapsed in 2011. A civil lawsuit filed Thursday in New York by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission seeks to ban Corzine from trading in the futures market and demands he pay unspecified penalties. The lawsuit charges that MF Global violated U.S. commodity laws in the weeks before it collapsed by using customer funds to support its own trading operations. About $1.2 billion in customer money disappeared when the firm collapsed. Corzine bore responsibility for the unlawful acts by MF Global because he controlled the company and its holdings and “either did not act in good faith or knowingly induced these violations,” the lawsuit says. “He also failed to supervise diligently the activities of MF Global’s officers, employees and agents,” the lawsuit says. MF Global has agreed to pay a $100 million penalty as part of a settlement announced Thursday. The money will come from bankruptcy proceedings. Corzine has previously disputed the allegations by the CFTC, which regulated New York-based MF Global. Corzine did not immediately respond publicly to Thursday’s lawsuit. In a statement, James Giddens, the court-appointed trustee overseeing MF Global’s bankruptcy, called the settlement with the CFTC “appropriate.” He said , the $100 million penalty will be paid only after the firm’s customers and creditors of the firm have received all their claims. The CFTC also filed civil charges against Edith O’Brien, the firm’s former assistant treasurer. Last year, O’Brien was summoned to a congressional hearing into what happened in MF Global’s final days. She declined to answer questions, invoking her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. The lawsuit seeks to bar Corzine and O’Brien from working for any firms that trade commodities or other investments regulated by the CFTC. Corzine and O’Brien would also be barred from trading any such investments on their own. They

could still trade stocks and bonds. Thursday’s lawsuit is striking in that regulators have seldom charged individuals with financial crisis-era misdeeds. They have instead imposed fines and penalties against companies, often with no one having to admit blame. Nearly 90 percent of the money belonging to the firm’s U.S. customers has been recovered. Many farmers, ranchers and business owners used MF Global to hedge their risks against fluctuating crop prices. The CFTC need not demonstrate in court that Corzine personally authorized the use of customer money, said Anthony Sabino of the New York law firm Sabino & Sabino, which specializes in white-collar crime. Top executives can be liable for “failure to maintain internal controls” or “failure to supervise,” Sabino said. “When the Titanic went down, you didn’t blame the cook; you didn’t blame the guy in the engine room,” Sabino said. “You blamed the captain. And Corzine is the captain of the ship called MF Global.” The CFTC has “a very substantial case,” against Corzine and MF Global, Sabino said. Michael Weinstein, a former Justice Department lawyer who now leads white collar defense at the New Jersey office of Cole Schotz, predicted that Corzine would fight the charges, especially because of the trading restrictions the CFTC is seeking. “For someone like him, that’s a huge pill to swallow,” Weinstein said. “He made his name and reputation on Wall Street.” MF Global sought bankruptcy protection in 2011 after a disastrous bet on European countries’ debt. Under Corzine’s leadership, the firm bet $6.3 billion on bonds issued by Italy, Spain and other nations with deeply troubled financial systems. Those bonds plummeted in value in the weeks before MF Global’s failure as fears intensified that some European countries might default. The firm’s $41 billion bankruptcy was the eighth-largest in U.S. history. It was also the first collapse of a Wall Street firm since the 2008 financial crisis ended. Critics have long complained that

Associated Press

In this Dec. 15, 2011, file photo, former MF Global Holdings Ltd. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jon Corzine testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington before the House Financial Services Committee. Federal regulators announced Thursday that they have accused the former New Jersey Governor of failing to properly manage MF Global, which misused customer funds before its 2011 collapse.

regulators have failed to aggressively pursue much bigger financial firms, whose high-risk bets nearly toppled the financial system. Corzine, 66, had been a CEO of Wall Street powerhouse Goldman Sachs before entering politics in 2000. He served as a Democratic U.S. senator from New Jersey and later governor of the state. Corzine has also been a major fundraiser for Democrats. He took the top job at MF Global in March 2010 after losing his 2009 bid for re-election as governor to Chris Christie, the current governor. MF Global was a small commodities broker in early 2010 when Corzine arrived. His vision was to transform the firm into a full-scale investment bank, similar to Goldman. The CFTC’s lawsuit says he sought to do so by generating revenue from aggressive trading strategies. The plan worked for a while even as the investments grew increasingly risky, the lawsuit said. In the second half of 2011, the firm’s investments and other factors put heavy strains on its cash flow and capital. By October 2011, the lawsuit says, sources of cash were drying up. Corzine and other company employees communicated with one another, by email and sometimes on recorded telephone lines, about the firm’s “dire situation,” the lawsuit says. It says a treasurer of the firm’s parent company, MF Global Holdings Ltd., told a chief financial officer and another employee in a recorded conversation on Oct. 6, 2011, that “we have to tell Jon that enough is enough. We need to take the keys away from him.”

Corzine “disparagingly nicknamed the Global treasurer ‘the Gravedigger,’” the lawsuit says In the last week of October 2011, MF Global violated U.S. commodity laws by using nearly $1 billion of customer funds to support its own trading operations, directly harming thousands of customers, the lawsuit says. Corzine stepped down as MF Global chief in November 2011, a few days after the firm filed for bankruptcy protection. Three reports on MF Global’s collapse, by a House panel and two court-appointed trustees, placed most of the blame on Corzine. It said his risky strategies caused the failure. Louis Freeh, the former FBI director who oversaw the liquidation of MF Global’s parent, concluded in a report in April that a risky trading strategy and “negligent conduct” by Corzine and his top managers led to the collapse. A few weeks

later, Freeh sued Corzine and the other executives. Shareholders of MF Global also have sued Corzine and other top managers. The investors say they lost about $585 million in just a week as the firm foundered. They accuse MF Global and the executives of making false and misleading statements about the firm’s financial strength. The trustee overseeing the liquidation of MF Global’s brokerage operations eventually recovered and returned to customers most of the missing money, having traced it to banks that held accounts for the firm and to other accounts. Giddens, the trustee, also joined a lawsuit filed by MF Global customers against Corzine and the other top executives. Corzine testified at three highly charged hearings of House and Senate committees in December 2011 after lawmakers summoned him by subpoena. It was a rare occurrence in

Washington: A former member of Congress being called by former colleagues to testify publicly about potential violations of law. Corzine’s testimony offered little to satisfy lawmakers or MF Global customers who lost money. Yet his explanations would be hard to disprove, legal experts said. He told the congressional panels that he never intended to “misuse” client money or to order anyone else to do so. Corzine also rebuffed an assertion that he knew about customer money that might have been transferred to a European affiliate just before MF Global collapsed. O’Brien, the former assistant treasurer, was subpoenaed to testify at a hearing last year about an email she sent that appeared to contradict testimony from Corzine. The email said Corzine ordered a transfer of customer money to cover an overdraft in the firm’s bank account in London.

Could Botox be coming soon to a dentist near you? BY SCRIPPS HOWARD NEWS SERVICE

When Wade Paxman is stressed, he clenches and grinds his teeth. The conventional treatment, mouth guards, protect his enamel but don’t ease his jaw pain or crushing headaches. Recently, however, the 53-year-old found relief in a drug most commonly used to rid middle-aged women of unwanted wrinkles: Botox. “It’s just magic. I love it,� said Paxman, who drives from Brigham City to Bountiful, Utah, every six months for treatment. “I’m saving my teeth and enjoying better health. It’s as simple as that.� The off-label use of Botox to treat jaw tension and pain is experimental and just catching on in many parts of the country. In Utah, for example, while a few oral surgeons use it therapeutically; Paxman was only able to find one dentist who offers it. But growing interest in the drug’s dental

applications is forcing debate over whether dentists should use it cosmetically. Utah law is vague and says dentists can administer and prescribe drugs “related to and appropriate in the practice of dentistry.� In 2008, the licensing board defined that to include Botox, but only for therapeutic reasons. Cosmetic uses — injecting it for a wrinkle-free brow or smile — are off limits, the board declared. Utah dentists aren’t exactly clamoring to add Botox to their smile makeover repertoire of teeth whitening and veneers. Oral surgeons have free rein to use it. Across the country, the dentistry board in Massachusetts approved a policy last March, allowing general dentists to administer botulinum toxins and other injectable wrinkle reducers, called dermal fillers, joining 20 other states with similar rules, according to the American Dental Association (ADA).

The off-label use of Botox to treat jaw tension and pain is experimental and just catching on in many parts of the country. But growing interest in the drug’s dental applications is forcing debate over whether dentists should use it cosmetically.

Key to the decision was growing interest by academics in Boston’s dental schools, the ADA says. Some argue Botox injections are well within a dentist’s scope of practice. Dentists inject local anesthetic into patients’ cheeks and gums. And they’re free to administer “Botox Therapeutic,� which is the same product in different packaging.

doses, causes botulism, a rare paralyzing illness often linked to food poisoning. In rare cases, it can spread beyond the injection site and cause paralysis, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. But side effects are generally temporary, since Botox wears off. “A Botox injection is a Botox injection, whether you’re using it to treat pain or reducing wrinkles, it’s still the same risk,� said

Paxman’s dentist, Jordan Davis, who underwent a year of oral surgery training in dental school that covered Botox and dermal fillers. “Our practice is a cosmetic practice, so it would be pretty cool to use dermal fillers to really enhance patients’ smiles,� he said. For now, though, he uses Botox on a sparingly few patients with severe jaw clenching and grinding, called bruxism.

Davis gauges the dose, or number of units, according to a patient’s size and severity of their grinding, generally injecting the Botox into the jaw and temple. The drug “tames� the muscles, he said. “I usually start pretty low and have them come back within a few weeks to see how it’s working.� Botox won’t fix temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ), such as arthritis or dislocations, but for patients such as Paxman, it’s “a blessing,� Davis said. Before Botox, Paxman said he woke nearly every morning with a “bad� headache. “As you can imagine, it’s not a good way to live,� he said. His jaw muscles don’t feel weak or numb after treatment, he said. “It’s not like novocaine.� Davis charges Paxman $10 a unit; the last treatment totalled $450. “But I’d pay $2,000,� Paxman said. “It’s hard to describe what a difference it’s made for me. It’s a quality-of-life issue.�

US suspends Bangladesh trade privileges US suspends Bangladesh trade privileges after garment industry disaster By Matthew Pennington The Associated Press‌

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama announced Thursday the suspension of U.S. trade privileges for Bangladesh because of concerns over labor rights and worker safety that intensified after hundreds died there in the global garment industry’s worst accident. In a proclamation, Obama said Bangladesh was not taking steps to afford internationally recognized worker rights to employees in the South Asian country. U.S. Trade Representative Mike Froman said the U.S. will, however, start new discussions with Bangladesh on improving workers’ conditions so the duty-free benefits that cover some 5,000 products can be restored. He didn’t say when that might be, noting that it would depend on Bangladesh’s actions. Thursday’s announcement was the culmination of a yearslong review of labor conditions in the impoverished country. Democratic lawmakers have been pushing for the step since the April

24 collapse of Rana Plaza in Dhaka that killed 1,129 people. In November, a fire at a garment factory killed more than 100 people. “The recent tragedies that needlessly took the lives of over 1,200 Bangladeshi garment factory workers have served to highlight some of the serious shortcomings in worker rights and workplace safety standards in Bangladesh,” Froman said. The Generalized System of Preferences, which is designed to boost the economies of developing nations, covers less than 1 percent of Bangladesh’s nearly $5 billion in exports to the U.S., its largest market. The benefits don’t cover the lucrative garment sector but Bangladesh’s government was anxious to keep them. The action may not exact a major and immediate economic toll, but it carries a reputational cost and might deter American companies from investing in the country, one of the world’s poorest. The U.S. action, which takes effect in 60 days, also may sway a decision by the European Union, which is considering withdrawing

GSP privileges. EU action could have a much bigger economic impact, as its duty-free privileges cover garments, which account for 60 percent of Bangladesh’s exports in that sector. The U.S. Trade Representative review of labor conditions in Bangladesh follows a petition filed in 2007 by the AFL-CIO seeking withdrawal of the GSP benefits. The review was expedited late last year amid concern from U.S. lawmakers over deadly industrial accidents, deteriorating labor rights

and the April 2012 killing of prominent labor activist Aminul Islam — a case that has not been solved. Froman said despite close engagement with Bangladesh to encourage labor reforms, the U.S. hadn’t seen sufficient progress. But he said the U.S. was “committed to working with the government of Bangladesh to take the actions necessary to rejoin the program.” Bangladesh maintains it is doing all it can, by closing dangerous factories and moving to amend its labor

law. Calls from both House and Senate Democrats for the U.S. benefits to be curtailed had multiplied since the Rana Plaza disaster, and some of those lawmakers quickly welcomed Thurday’s decision. Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., who is co-chairman of the congressional caucus on Bangladesh, said that in light of recent tragedies in the country, the suspension was “inevitable.” “I hope this action will propel Bangladeshi officials to develop a clear

path forward that protects all workers in Bangladesh,” he said. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said it was long overdue for Bangladesh to change its labor practices and ensure workers’ rights. “Bangladesh is an important trading partner, but we cannot and will not look the other way while workers are subjected to unsafe conditions and environments endangering their wellbeing,” Menendez said in a statement. He also called for American companies operating in Bangladesh to improve conditions for factory workers and work with European companies on a global standard for safety. Lawmakers have criticized U.S. retailers that source garments from Bangladesh for not joining the more than 40 mostly European companies that have adopted a five-year, legally binding contract that requires them to help pay for fire safety and building improvements. The Bangladeshi garment manufacturers’ association says it stepping up inspections and has closed 20 factories. The garment industry employs some 4 million people in Bangladesh, 80 percent of them women.

Jeep owners worry about safety after recall deal Jeep recall deal leaves owners of older Grand Cherokees, Libertys, confused about safety DETROIT (AP) — A deal between the government and Chrysler over Jeeps linked to deadly fires isn’t sitting well with many Jeep owners and auto safety advocates. In early June, after a nearly three-year investigation, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration recommended that Chrysler recall 2.7 million older Jeep SUVs because the fuel tanks could rupture, leak and cause fires in rear-end crashes. But last week, after talks between outgoing Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne, the agency compromised, letting Chrysler limit the recall to about 1.5 million vehicles. The agreement removed about 1.2 million Jeep Grand Cherokees, model years 1999 to 2004, from the recall, leaving some owners confused about the safety of their vehicles. Chrysler argued that those Jeeps have a different design than the ones it agreed to recall and are as

safe as comparable models from other automakers. The about-face has confused people like Els Sipkes, a photographer from near Charleston, S.C. Her 2000 Grand Cherokee isn’t being recalled, although the government initially said it should be. She says that every time she stops quickly, she checks her rear-view mirror. “It’s in my mind that if a car crashes into the back of me, that I’ve got to be on my toes and I’ve got to get out,” she said. Chrysler won’t comment on the recall, beyond the documents it filed with NHTSA outlining its case. Sean Kane, a frequent critic of NHTSA who heads a safety research company in Massachusetts, said the number of vehicles cut from the Jeep recall is unusual. But the agency frequently negotiates the size of recalls with car companies, he said. For example, in the early 2000s, Ford negotiated a series of smaller recalls that held off a big one for vehicles with cruise control switches that caused fires, he said. But

the company eventually recalled more than 10 million vehicles. David Kelly, former NHTSA chief of staff and acting administrator under President George W. Bush, said Chrysler probably presented data justifying the smaller recall. “I am positive that the agency would never negotiate vehicles out of a recall if they felt they were unsafe,” he said. Yet critics say all the Jeeps should be recalled. And they question whether Chrysler’s solution of adding a trailer hitch as an extra buffer in the back is enough to prevent deadly fires. Under the recall Chrysler will, free of charge, install hitches on any Grand Cherokees from 1993-1998 and Libertys from 2002-2007 that don’t already have them from the factory. About 65 percent of Jeeps from that era were sold without factory hitches, according to Ward’s Automotive. Chrysler will inspect those with hitches purchased elsewhere and replace them if they have sharp edges that could puncture the gas tank. The 1999-2004 Grand Cherokees are part of a “customer service campaign.” Here, a Chrysler

dealer will inspect a trailer hitch installed after the car was purchased and replace it if necessary. But Chrysler won’t install a hitch on any vehicle that doesn’t already have one. Chrysler Group LLC, which is majority owned by Fiat SpA of Italy, hasn’t disclosed how much the recall could cost, although

hitches sell for about $200 each on websites. On June 3, the government sent Chrysler a 13-page letter requesting a recall of all 2.7 million Grand Cherokees and Libertys in question. The letter included detailed statistics on crashes involving fuel tank fires in SUVs from model years 1993 to 2007.

The agency said the data showed the Jeeps were more prone to fuel tank fires than similar models. The Jeeps have gas tanks behind the rear axle, a design that was fairly common when they were built but isn’t used much anymore. NHTSA had evidence of 37 Jeep accidents that killed 51 people.

Wearing the

Red, white & blue

Bold, powerful colors great look not reserved for July 4 BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Red, white and blue are at the heart of the Fourth of July holiday. Mix them. Embrace them. Wear them — and do it again on July 5. You can do it over and over again all year long. The colors are a classic combination that celebrates summertime in all its glory, say style experts, and it’s infinitely more wearable than the other pairings that define other specific days on the calendar. Together, the shades are chic not costume-y, a much higher risk with, say the orange and black of Halloween, red and green at Christmas. “Red, white and blue are iconic,” says Tommy Hilfiger, who weaves the colors into seemingly every collection no matter the season or trend. “These colors reflect freedom, optimism and a youthful spirit. ... I’ve always been inspired by iconic people and places, and my American heritage is one of the most recognizable influences in my designs. The brand has always drawn inspiration from our classic, American, cool heritage and signature preppy style.” And, adds Tim Baxter, executive vice president and general merchandise manager of apparel at Macy’s, the colors aren’t just a source of American pride. The Brits and French also use it for their flags, he notes: “It’s a very bold and powerful color combination.” The crispness of the colors — and the sharp contrast they offer — works in their favor, explains Alia Ahmed-Yahia, chief style director of the Loft. It’s not the same with other holiday-specific palettes. First of all, she says, it’s grounded in white, which is an easy base for any summer outfit Memorial Day to Labor Day, and even longer if you’re willing to break some outdated “rules.” White is flattering to most people, it’s polished but not severe like a black would be. Baxter says navy is getting its due as a fashion color, too, and shoppers are using it as they would a black. “I think we’re shifting into a period of fashion where navy will become a more influential base color throughout the year.” Whatever it is, choose “a hero color,” says Ahmed-Yahia. “You don’t have to be equal parts red, white and blue.”


Sparklers pose risk to holiday safety Parents go above and beyond to keep their children safe, especially from burns or fire hazards. They’ll put locks and guards on ovens, check the temperature of bath water, push hot drinks to the center of the table so they cannot be tipped over and blow on hot food to cool it down. However, even the most protecting of parents might be unwittingly putting kids at risk during the summer holidays, when children often play with sparklers. Most people think that sparklers are the safest fireworks around. After all, they aren’t propelled into the sky at high speeds. Sparklers do, however, burn at temperatures between 1,100 F and 1,500 F. That’s three to five

Vuitton celebrates Americana PARIS (AP) — The Louis Vuitton man moved from the eastern Himalayas of last season to the sunny West Coast of the United States for this spring-summer 2014. “This was the American road trip, just enjoying and celebrating Americana from NASA through to the traditional things such as bandanas,” said designer Kim Jones, breaking a sweat backstage Thursday at the Paris show that was held inside a scorching conservatory. The collection ranged from the road trip, as imagined in khaki parkas with travel badges and cotton printed bandanas, to a whole mix of different American styles: From sportswear, as in white, blue and red silk graph check tailored shorts, to Gatsby-style evening suits in raw kimono silk with a classy curved lower part. As ever, when traveling anywhere Vuitton-style, don’t expect to rough it. Stylish and coiffed David Beckham looked approvingly on from the front row. Silhouettes were tight and masculine.

Miyake revamps hippie tie-dye Community calendar

PARIS (AP) — Issey Miyake’s new menswear designer Yusuke Takahashi describes his springsummer 2014 display as “amazement for things, shapes, color and motions.” Thursday’s collection in Paris saw checks, bright cobalts, ultramarines, yellows, greens, pinks and reds burst onto the catwalk — dominating the shape of the loose silhouettes. But the musings with pattern and color are common territory for the famed French-Japanese house. If there was any “amazement” to be found in this 35-piece show it was more in the designer’s revamp of old school hippie tie-dye styles. Issey Miyake is a house always at the fore in state-of-the-art fabric technologies. Here, alongside the traditional twist dyeing that was applied to bleaching, Takahashi used a “batik” technique from Java, where layers of anti-dying glue are printed on cloth that’s dyed.

Ask the Coach Making friends

Hey, Coach! I am headed to college this fall, and I am wondering if I will have any trouble fitting in where I don’t think I will know anyone. Making friends in high school was very easy because I knew a lot of people since we were little. I am concerned about going to college with thousands of other students that I don’t know. I think I have an OK personality, but I am a little nervous about being far away and not knowing anyone. What are some of the things to expect or do when going away to college? Signed….Nervous Dear Anxious: This is a good question. The Coach believes that there is a proven formula for success. Having a positive, out-going personality usually works very well. A sincere smile goes a long way when offered with a cordial greeting of the day, and make sure you try your best to become good friends with your roomie. Also, by getting involved in a variety of activities, you will give yourself a great opportunity to meet a lot of people on a personal level. Assuming you will be on campus, be confident enough to go around your dorm and introduce yourself. Invite others to your room. Attend sporting and cultural events and try to network at every opportunity. Be sincere, be a good listener and treat others with respect. The Coach believes many of these suggestions make up the basic fundamentals of making new friends under any scenario. In closing, the Coach encourages you (all students) to work hard, get to bed early on most nights and steer clear of trouble. Drugs will lead to a path of destruction, and you don’t need alcohol (also a drug) to have a good time. Please remember that the best decisions we can make in life are educated ones. Good luck, and enjoy your college experience where you will have a tremendous opportunity for significant intellectual and emotional growth and an opportunity to develop most of the life skills necessary to be successful in life.

Office bickering Hey, Coach! Where I work we have a small staff and one girl who always makes trouble with gossip and unwanted opinions. We have asked her to cool it, but nothing seems to work. This matter takes away from our work and is to the point of being ridiculous. How can we better address this situation? Thanks. Signed…. Cool It Dear Cool It: There’s not enough space left to get into any detail, so the group may need to approach the boss. Also, away from work at lunch/wherever, perhaps using your own words above with the whole group present (like an intervention) may help. This matter takes away from our work and is just ridiculous. STOP IT! Good luck. Coach’s Comment: While paying back kindness is great, it’s also great to pass it on to others. Be safe, enjoy the July 4th holiday, and thanks for making the Coach a part of your weekend! Please send questions/ comments to a s k t h e


I read an interesting article about cars recently. As a former foreign car mechanic, I’m still very interested in them, of course. The article claimed that the next five years will be amazing in general for cars and, that by 2017, we will have self-driving vehicles. We’ve written about this before in past columns and here’s how it breaks down. In 2013, we already have “adaptive cruise control” systems. These use laser or radar to maintain a safe and set distance from other vehicles. Right now, these systems are only in cars like Mercedes, BMW, Lexus and Audi. Next year, General Motors will partner with AT&T to have embedded 4G Internet access in most vehicles sold by GM in the USA and Canada. Also starting in 2014, Apple will launch an operating system that integrates IOS7 with your in-dash system. In 2015, Japanese companies like Toyota, Honda and Nissan will debut hydrogen-powered cars in Japan. Manufacturers will be required to ensure that at least 100 filling stations will be available in the areas of Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka. Coming in 2016 will be battery control technology with “smart” batteries, including nickel metal

hydride and lithium-ion. By then, the US is forecasted to claim 90 percent of the hybrid market. Finally, 2017 will bring selfdriving vehicles. Ford is already projecting this capability by then. I’ll be 68 in 2017 and will probably need a car that drives itself. By the way, they are also predicting that by 2018, there will be a big Internet radio surge. I chuckled at the remark that kids born after 2018 will never know what a knob on a car radio is. So it looks like the Jetsons are just around the corner. The car companies are still worried, though, that the public will not embrace the concept of a car that can drive itself with open arms. Some years back, I heard on the radio that GM planned to have electronic steering on a car, which made me cringe. I admit to be oldfashioned and thinking that obviously, a solid connection between the steering wheel and the wheels is the safest way to go. They also talked about an engine with no starter. Instead, they would make the bell housing attached to the engine like a giant electrical motor that would react to windings in the flywheel and spin the engine over as opposed a regular starter. This idea required something like a 24-volt electrical system. The thought of somebody with jumper

cables trying to boost a 24-volt system and incorrectly connecting the jumper cables also made me cringe. Just because something CAN be invented, doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. In other news, thanks to technology, I recently gave a guitar lesson to a student who is in West Virginia for the summer. At a prearranged time, I had Mark, the student, text me. I gave him the go-ahead to “Facetime” my iPad courtesy of his Mom’s iPhone. At first, he texted me back saying that it said I was not available, so I thought he might be doing something wrong. A couple of minutes later, however, it showed that somebody was requesting a video chat session via Facetime. I hit yes, and there he was as clear as day. I had him play a song that I’d emailed him earlier in the week and the whole experience was very cool. I’ve also decided to implement a device called a Boss JS 10 (http:// while I’m teaching guitar students at Micarelli’s. It looks like a small stereo unit and it will allow me and a student to both plug into it with either a regular or bass guitar and play along with over 300 songs that are stored internally. Both guitar channels have separate volume controls plus

all kinds of different cool guitar sounds. I can also record myself playing along with the student. I can also hook it up to a computer and it even has an input for a microphone. I’ve also bought a device called an iKlip ( that allows me to safely clip my iPad onto a microphone stand. Not only do I use many of the great guitar apps available for the iPad, but I may also be teaching more students via video lessons and I need a robust and safe stand for it. I’m determined to be as high tech as possible this year while still having fun teaching guitar. Also this week, we FINALLY fitted the 8 gig of RAM into my wife Paulette’s Macbook Pro. Per Doren’s advice to me, I first took her huge assortment of desktop things and put them in one folder and named it “Desktop Items.” I then ran her disk utility software on the Mac to repair what are called disk permissions. She says that it’s much faster, but I think the next step will be to replace her hard drive, which spins at just over 5,000 rpm to a larger capacity and faster-spinning 7,200 rpm hard drive. I even got her to back up her iPhone and iPad via iTunes. With that achievement, I’ll wish you a great week, so cheerio for now!

Patient centered: A doctor’s office that’s all about you BY THE EDITORS OF CONSUMER REPORTS

Banks have finally woken up to their customers’ needs for convenient hours — and today customer-focused service is making itself felt in some of America’s medical offices, according to Consumer Reports. In these reorganized practices, evening and weekend hours are only part of the difference. If you’ve had a blood test or a CT scan, you won’t have to call the office half a dozen times chasing down the results. And if you leave the hospital with an incomprehensible “discharge plan,” someone from your doctor’s office will help you arrange your follow-up care. If you’re already getting this type of service, you may be part of a “patient-centered medical home,” the fastest-growing innovation in medical care. More than 10 percent of primary care practitioners — about 27,000 U.S. doctors in 5,560 offices — are now recognized as “patient-centered medical homes” by the main accrediting group, the National Committee for Quality Assurance. Many thousands more are transforming their practices under other umbrellas. A WAY TO CUT COSTS Health care spending is a looming emergency. Within the next three years, more than 25 million Americans are expected to sign up for health insurance as the Affordable Care Act rolls out. And tens of millions of Americans born during the baby boom are heading into their medically expensive sunset years. Other countries have solved the problem of costs by fiat. The prices that health care providers can collect for their services are established by the government (in Canada, France, Japan and the United Kingdom) or national cartels of insurers (in Germany). Instead of national price controls, the U.S. is

Customer-focused service is making itself felt in some of America’s medical offices, according to Consumer Reports.

laying its bet on reforming the way health care is delivered and paid for. In the case of medical homes, in addition to the usual per-service fees for office visits and procedures, primary care doctors receive a little extra to defray the costs of setting up and running patient-centered care and may also share in any resulting savings if they succeed in keeping patients healthier and in less need of expensive care. Consumer Reports notes that it will be years before we know whether these reforms really do save money and reduce deaths and disability from chronic illnesses. Meanwhile, it’s

important that you know how these changes will affect what happens to you in the doctor’s office or during a hospital stay. WHO’S IN CHARGE HERE? One of the major ideas for saving money is to put someone firmly in charge — usually a family physician, general internist or pediatrician — so that patients aren’t getting duplicative or contradictory treatments from a legion of specialists and so that doctors aren’t overlooking important and inexpensive preventive measures. In addition to the 9-to-4 medical practice going the way of banker’s hours, Consumer Reports notes these hallmarks of a medical home: I Efficient teamwork. In patient-centered practices, like Bon Secours Medical Group in suburban Richmond, Va., the process has been re-engineered, according to Dr. Andrew Rose, a family physician in one of its practice locations. First thing in the morning, the care team of doctors, nurses and medical assistants “do a daily huddle where we look at our schedule for the day and identify any particular needs the patients who are coming in may have,” he says. If a patient needs blood or urine tests, the nurses and assistants will take care of those before the doctor even enters the exam room. I “Smart” medical records. For years, U.S. doctors lagged behind the rest of the developed world in computerizing their medical records, but that changed dramatically in 2009 when the federal stimulus bill brought forth more than $19 billion in funds to help practices go digital. The percentage of doctor’s offices with electronic medical records shot up from 42 percent in 2008 to 72 percent in 2012. I Motivating patients. Ultimately, patients with chronic illnesses must participate in their own wellness, and medical homes are trying to make that happen.

Dog’s upset stomach may be caused by garlic juice BY DR. MICHAEL FOX

DEAR DR. FOX: We have a 7 1/2-year-old pit bull/terrier-mix. She is a rescue dog. We adopted her when she was 12 weeks old. These last two years or so, it seems like her stomach gets upset easily. Often, she doesn’t eat and just lies around. Sometimes I give her Pepto-Bismol, and sometimes she will eat a little of a certain grass that makes her vomit, then she is ready to eat. Daily, I give her boiled chicken, green beans, dry food, her multivitamin (half of an adult tablet) and garlic juice, which she gets only in the morning. I can’t figure out what is upsetting her stomach so often. I have caught her eating bunny and squirrel poop in the yard, but she doesn’t get an upset stomach every time. She loves raw pasta. I give her maybe 12 pieces of the no-yolk kind a day. The only other thing she will get is Pup-Peroni when we leave the house as positive reinforcement. Is

there anything else I could add to her diet to cause her to not want to eat the poop? My other question concerns her anal glands: I have to take care of them once a month like clockwork, and they are usually full. You mentioned something about an allergy or intolerance. The dry food I purchase is Purina One with lamb, rice and soft morsels in it. Is that why she can’t release her anal glands on her own? — G.S., Cedar Hill, Mo. DEAR G.S.: If you are giving your dog the garlic juice on an empty stomach, this could be the problem. I would cut out this supplement and the snacks and transition her onto my home-prepared diet (available on my website, Also try my buckwheat dog treat recipe. Many manufactured pet foods contain various food industry byproducts and other ingredients not always indicated on the label. Food hypersensitivity/allergy can manifest is chronic ear and/or anal

gland disease. I would certainly avoid any manufactured food that contains GMO (genetically modified) ingredients such as corn and soy. Consider transitioning her onto a raw food diet such as Bravo or some of the whole-food and organic dog foods listed on my website. The poop eating may indicate a nutritional deficiency, so she may benefit from a daily teaspoon of brewer’s yeast and a probiotic supplement in her food. You can use live bacteria-rich organic plain yogurt or kefir as a backup. DEAR DR. FOX: I have enjoyed your column for many years. You often get letters from people dealing with their cats who have symptoms of feline urinary syndrome. I had a cat who displayed those symptoms and, though no stones ever needed to be removed, I drove to the emergency hospital late at night on more than one occasion because I believed he would not live until morning. I came across a book about cats and vitamin C,

and the vet who wrote it suggested giving sodium ascorbate to cats for FUS. Sodium ascorbate, as you would know, is vitamin C buffered with salt for easier digestion. The book even gave recommended quantities based on the cat’s weight. I gave my 12-pound cat 1/8 teaspoon mixed into his moist food every day for the rest of his life, and he never had any more problems with FUS. I found a vet who, when I told her I was giving my cat sodium ascorbate, responded, “Good idea, keeps the urine nice and acidic.” In learning about human natural medicine, I learned that for either diarrhea or constipation, bran flakes are effective. When my cat was straining to defecate and I took her to the vet to get checked out, the doctor said that one can treat a cat the same way as a human for constipation. I bought some bran flakes and now I mix a teaspoon in with my cat’s moist food every day. Stools are softer and leave her body easier. I really hope these

natural and inexpensive treatments don’t die with me. I don’t hear veterinarians these days prescribing these simple “cures” found at any natural food store. — D.S., St. Louis DEAR D.S.: I hope that veterinarians and cat and dog owners will take note of your personal testimony of the benefits of such natural products for some serious health conditions in companion animals. Vitamin C is a natural acidifier, which can help dissolve and prevent struvite crystals/calculi but may not be of benefit when animals have oxalate or other kinds of urinary tract-blocking calculi. Veterinarian Dr. Wendell Belfield was one of the first, I believe, to recognize these and other benefits of vitamin C for companion animals. Bran can be effective, but I prefer psyllium husks, presoaked in water. When animals are on a dry food diet and don’t drink enough water, bulk laxatives can aggravate constipation.

A coconut and berry no-bake pie for July Fourth BY ALISON LADMAN The Associated Press

Just because summer seems to scream for pie doesn’t mean we are eager to crank up the oven. This is especially true at the Fourth of July, when we’d rather focus on the grill and preparations for fireworks. All of which is why we are especially thankful for the delicious ease of icebox pies. No baking — in fact, barely any cooking at all — is needed to create our sweet, rich raspberry coconut icebox pie. It blends fresh raspberries with a whipped cream-cream cheese-coconut milk filling that is cool and satisfying. While we love the combination of raspberries and coconut, feel free RASPBERRY to substitute the berry COCONUT ICEBOX of your choice.

coconut 1/2 cup raspberry jam 1 cup heavy cream 2 cups fresh raspberries 1/2 cup toasted shredded coconut To make the crust, in a medium bowl mix together the coconut, chocolate sandwich cookies and butter. Transfer the

mixture to a 9-inch pie pan and press it evenly across the bottom and up the sides. Set aside. To make the filling, in a small glass dissolve the gelatin in the 2 tablespoons of water. In a small saucepan over medium-high, bring the juice to a boil. Stir

in the dissolved gelatin, then remove the pan from the heat and set aside. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together the cream cheese and cream of coconut. Add the raspberry jam and gelatin and mix until smooth. In another medium bowl, use an electric mixer with clean beaters to whip the cream until it holds medium peaks. Working in 2 batches, gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. Gently fold in the raspberries, reserving a few for garnish. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pie shell.

Chill out with do-it-yourself summer wine coolers BY MICHELLE LOCKE The Associated Press

The wine cooler has a bit of an identity problem. Is it a wine spritzer? A wine cocktail? Sangria? And what about that wild child moment in the ‘80s when it was the hottest thing on the party scene? Luckily, this cocktail conundrum is easily solved. As Gertrude Stein might put it, wine cooler is wine spritzer is wine cocktail is sangria. And the versions being whipped up today have nothing in common with the cheap, massproduced products of 30 years ago (which thankfully went the way of shoulder pads). “Mixology has been raised to this new cheflike heights and wine, in a way, is the bartender’s hottest ingredient right now,” says Mike Dawson, senior editor at Wine Enthusiast. “Cuttingedge bartenders are taking these wine-based drinks to new heights, and creating these New Age coolers, along with countless variations of the sangria and classic wine cocktails like the New York Sour.” Summer is the perfect time for wine coolers, since it’s the one time of year even the most dedicated vinophile toys with dropping a fistful of ice in a glass. Switching to a cooler makes wine “a little bit easier to drink,” says Chad Furuta of Del Frisco’s Grille in New York. At the Grille, bartenders are making spritzers with a house white wine, mixed with ginger ale or a lemonlime soda and served with a lemon twist or wedge. “Whether you want to call it wine cooler or spritzer, it really is a great summer drink,” he says. What should you use when making your own wine coolers? Well, don’t reach for the bottom shelf wine that just doesn’t taste good, advises Cappy

Sorentino, bar director of Spoonbar restaurant at the h2hotel in the wine country town of Healdsburg, Calif. On the other hand, don’t go crazy and uncork an expensive bottle of wine, either. “It doesn’t have to be the best stuff because you’re basically using it as a base,” he says. Look for a wine that has a fair amount of acidity to it, i.e. “yes” to sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio, “no” to chardonnay that’s spent a lot of time in oak barrels. For red wines, Spanish wines are, not surprisingly, a good choice since sangria is a Spanish invention. Tempranillo makes a good choice. He has an interesting take on sangria, which is usually wine fortified with something a little stronger and augmented with sugar and spices. At Spoonbar, he’s using

a rose wine with pisco (Peruvian brandy), plus a little sugar, some water, fresh pineapple juice, cinnamon and a touch of clove. It’s “really refreshing,” which is good for Healdsburg, where temperatures can get toasty. Joe Campanale, beverage director of four New York City neighborhood restaurants, encourages cocktail enthusiasts to get creative by mixing up their favorite singleserving cocktail in a pitcher for a group dinner or celebration. Keep the ingredients light, he advises, as in his Blame it on the Aperol cocktail served at the dell’anima restaurant which combines Aperol, Blue Coat gin, lemon juice in a pitcher with plenty of ice.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security states that sparklers are third only to bottle rockets and firecrackers as the firework most likely to cause injury to children ages 5 to 14. The American Academy of Pediatrics states that 45 percent of all firework-related injuries occurs to children under age 15, while estimates suggest that 57 percent of the firework-related injuries suffered by children under the age of 5 are caused by sparklers. Due to safety concerns, Arizona, Delaware, Georgia, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island banned all fireworks as of 2005. That ban includes sparklers.

Sparkler bombs can use more than 50 milligrams of flash powder, which is illegal under regulations established by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The ATF also warns that sparkler bombs can ignite simply through friction or excessive heat. As of May 2012, there were about 2,630 video search results on YouTube. com for “sparkler bombs.” Some towns across the country have found the problem to be an epidemic. In July 2009, a 15-year-old South Carolina boy lost his right hand and experienced extensive injuries to both his legs when trying to extinguish a sparkler bomb a friend had made. Police on the scene said the sparkler bomb also created a 3-foot by 3-foot by 1-foot crater in the ground. Manipulating fireworks of any kind is a felony in most areas. Not only does a person risk serious injury, he or she also risks a fine or jail time. Sparklers may seem to be relatively safe, but as with any incendiary device, they can cause serious injuries.

A new threat As if the dangers of individual sparklers were not enough, some people are taking even bigger risks. Spurred on by online videos and step-by-step building instructions, individuals are turning ordinary sparklers into sparkler bombs. These homemade explosives are created by binding 300 sparklers together with electrical tape and using one sparkler as a fuse. Sparkler bombs are being used to blow up everything from garbage cans to mailboxes. Sparklers are made from a pyrotechnic material and iron fillings pasted on a stick. When lit individually, the sparkler simply burns for a few seconds and fizzles out. However, when bound together, multiple sparklers produce a lot of heat and energy that has no free place to go.

Zach Braff to star in ‘Bullets Over Broadway’ NEW YORK (AP) — Zach Braff will make his Broadway debut next year in a musical adaptation of Woody Allen’s crime caper “Bullets Over Broadway.” The only person who might be more excited than Braff is his dad. “If my father loved two things most, it was Woody Allen movies and Broadway musicals,” Braff said by phone from Los Angeles. “When I called my father, I said, ‘Are you sitting down?’” Written by Allen and Douglas McGrath, the story follows a struggling young playwright who is forced to cast a mobster’s talentless girlfriend in his latest drama. Braff will play the hero, portrayed by John Cusack

in the 1994 film. “It’s thrilling,” Braff says. “I keep waking up expecting it to be a dream.” Five-time Tony Award-winner Susan Stroman will direct and choreograph the show, which will start performances in March 2014 at the St. James Theatre. The show will feature a full orchestra playing music of the 1920s. The musical sees Braff return to his acting roots: He played Allen’s son in one scene when he was 18 in the film “Manhattan Murder Mystery” before going to Northwestern University to study film. “If you would have asked me a couple months ago ‘What are your

dreams as an actor?’ I would have said, ‘I’d love to do a Broadway musical one day and I’d love to work with Woody Allen again.’ When I got the call from Woody and Susan Stroman, my head sort of exploded.” The rest of the cast will be made up of Vincent Pastore (“The Sopranos”), Betsy Wolfe (“The Mystery of Edwin Drood”), Lenny Wolpe (“The Drowsy Chaperone”) and Helene Yorke (“Grease”). Braff grew up in northern New Jersey and caught the performing bug from his father, a lawyer who did community theater for fun. Though he’s never done musical theater professionally, Braff often sang as the daydreaming Dr. John “J.D.”

ND considers buying Lawrence Welk’s childhood home North Dakota hopes Welk’s boyhood home will draw tourists of all ages to region By James Macpherson The Associated Press‌

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The State Historical Society of North Dakota is considering buying the boyhood home of Lawrence Welk, though some worry the farmstead may not draw many tourists because most of the famed champagne music bandleader’s fans have died or will do so soon. So the organization proposes to use Welk’s home in the tiny town of Strasburg to also highlight the importance of agriculture and the region’s German-Russian heritage. “Even with the Welk legacy aside, it’s history worth preserving,” said Sen. Robert Erbele, R-Lehr, who successfully fought this year to include funding for the bandleader’s birthplace in the historical society’s budget. The idea comes two decades after Congress earmarked $500,000 to develop a tourist industry in Strasburg, including a museum of GermanRussian heritage to draw visitors to Welk’s birthplace. Embarrassed lawmakers later withdrew the money when the idea was mocked nationally as a symbol of wasteful spending. Merl Paaverud, director of the historical society, said the agency’s board meets July 12 and may decide whether to spend $100,000 on the six-acre parcel that includes the home where Welk and his seven siblings were born. The property is still owned by Welk’s

extended family and includes a barn, summer kitchen, granary, buggy house, blacksmith shop and outhouse. The home, about 75 miles southeast of Bismarck, has been on the market since last fall. “It’s not a done deal,” Paaverud said. “We’ll be taking input from people, locals and interested parties.” Sen. Joe Miller, R-Park River, said he’s a fan of the North Dakota-born bandleader — but he doesn’t think the state should foot the bill for Welk’s birthplace. “It’s just less money we could put toward tax relief, roads or whatever,” Miller said. North Dakota’s newfound oil wealth has placed unprecedented demands on lawmakers for spending, from the mandatory to the absurd, Miller said. “Just because people think we have lots of money people think they can come at us with ridiculous requests,” he said. Welk’s nieces, Evelyn Schwab, 84, and Edna Schwab, 80, have given tours of the farmstead since it was restored with private funds in the early 1990s. Welk donated about $140,000 for the restoration before his death in 1992 at age 89, Evelyn Schwab said. Though Welk returned home often, “He never lived to see the place restored,” she said. “That was the sad part.” Not a fan of farm life, Welk left North Dakota

farmstead would preserve Welk’s musical legacy and bring in much-needed tourism dollars. “We think $100,000 is a drop in the bucket for the state,” Evelyn Schwab said. “It would help with economic development because we’re not benefiting from the big (oil) boom out west.” Visitors still trickle in to see Welk’s home but many are at least as old as the 80-something Schwab sisters.

The show, famous for its bubble machine and Welk’s phrases “Ah-one, an’ ah-two” and “wunnerful, wunnerful” in his German accent, ran until 1971 and is still shown in reruns. The Schwabs said Welk’s farmstead drew more than 7,000 people in 1992 but attendance has slipped to about 500 last year. “For the first few years, we were swamped with people but as the years go by attendance has dropped — younger kids have their own types of music now,” Evelyn Schwab said. “If it wasn’t for reruns, it would have died out a long time ago.” The Schwab sisters and Sen.

Target CNN will be bringing ‘Crossfire’ back on the air cuts ties Newt Gingrich to headline with revamped version Deen

NEW YORK (AP) — CNN said that it is bringing the political debate show “Crossfire” back on the air this fall with Newt Gingrich By Anne D’innocenzio AP Retail Writer as one of the combatants. The former House speaker and N E W Y O R K ( A P ) Republican presidential candidate — Paula Deen’s mer- will be one of the four regular hosts chandise and media empire is fast unraveling. Retailers Target Corp. and Home Depot Inc. and diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk became the latest companies to sever ties or distance themselves from celebrity cook Paula Deen as fallout builds from revelations that the Southern celebrity chef used racial slurs in the past. Target, based in Minneapolis, said that it will phase out its Paula Deenbranded cookware and other items, which were sold on its website and in its stores. “Once the merchandise is sold out, we will not be replenishing inventory,” said Molly Snyder, a Target spokeswoman. Home Depot, which sold Paula Deenbranded cookware and kitchen products only online, said it pulled the products off its website on Wednesday. Diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk said Thursday it and Deen have “mutually agreed to suspend our patient education activities for now.” The developments are the latest blow to Deen’s business. Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, said Wednesday that it’s also cutting ties with Deen. The world’s largest retailer currently carries a variety of products under her moniker, including food items, cookware and health and wellness products, at all of its 4,000 U.S. namesake stores. The retailer began selling her merchandise several years ago. Wal-Mart said it will not place any new orders beyond what’s already committed and is working with suppliers to address existing inventories and agreements. Meanwhile, Paula Deen’s name is being stripped from four buffet restaurants owned by Caesars Entertainment. Caesars said Wednesday that its decision to rebrand its restaurants in Joliet, Ill.; Tunica, Miss.; Cherokee, N.C.; and Elizabeth, Ind., was a mutual one with Deen. Last week, the Food Network said that it would not renew the celebrity cook’s contract. And on Monday, pork producer Smithfield Foods said it was dropping her as a spokeswoman. Smithfield sold Paula Deen-branded hams in addition to featuring her as a spokeswoman. Amid the losses, bookbuyers are standing by Deen. As of Thursday morning, “Paula Deen’s New Testament: 250 Recipes, All Lightened Up,” ranked No. 1 on The book is scheduled for October. Another Deen book, “Paula Deen’s Southern Cooking Bible,” was at No. 13. Several other Deen books were out of stock. Deen appeared in a “Today” show interview Wednesday, dissolving into tears and saying that anyone in the audience who’s never said anything they’ve regretted should pick up a rock and throw it at her head. The chef, who specializes in Southern comfort food, repeated that she’s not a racist.

Stephanie Cutter, a former campaign spokeswoman for President Barack Obama, and Van Jones, a Yaleeducated attorney and advocate for green projects, will speak from the left. “It just feels like the right time for ‘Crossfire’ to be coming back,” said Sam Feist, CNN’s senior vice president and Washington bureau chief. The show will air weekdays

but no time slot has been set. The original aired on CNN from 1982 until 2005, and its alumni list reads like a Washington who’s who — Pat Buchanan, Robert Novak, Geraldine Ferraro, Lynn Cheney, James Carville, Paul Begala and Tucker Carlson among them. It was essentially killed by Jon Stewart. “The Daily Show” host appeared on “Crossfire” in 2004 and got into a bitter fight with Carlson, with Stewart calling the show “partisan hackery” that did little to advance

the cause of democracy. When then-CNN U.S. President Jon Klein cancelled it a few months later, he said he was essentially siding with Stewart. But with Fox News Channel tilting right and MSNBC leaning left, there really isn’t a debate program on cable TV now that is a fair fight, Feist said. “CNN is really the only network that can have a bipartisan debate show with some level of authenticity,” he said.



2 new leads are tapped for Broadway’s ‘Annie’ ‘It’s very exciting’ — 2 new 11-year-old girls are tapped to lead Broadway’s ‘Annie’ By Mark Kennedy AP Drama Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Two 11-year-old actresses who have played orphans and been understudies in the Broadway revival of “Annie” have been picked to permanently take over from Lilla Crawford in the title role, a step up that has left them beaming. Taylor Richardson and Sadie Sink, both natural redheads, will share the role of the stage’s most famous redhead beginning July 30. Crawford’s last performance is July 28. “It’s very exciting,” said Sadie, who has played Annie before but not on Broadway. “It is a big step from an orphan to the title role.” That’s a sentiment that her smiling co-star agrees with: “Definitely.” Taylor, an actress from

I am not,” said Tiffany Richardson, Taylor’s mom, with a laugh. “It skipped me and went to her. I’m OK with that.” Though clearly talented, Sadie is not the first in her family to be on Broadway. One of her three older brothers, Mitchell, played a part in “Elf” this winter — the reason Sadie came to New York. Sadie also has a younger sister with curly red hair who likes to sing. “The red hair and the talent? I don’t know,” said Lori Sink, Sadie’s mother. Tiffany Richardson has already seen her daughter take center stage on Broadway as Annie, and said she and Sadie’s mother will soon have a special bond. “I can’t wait to share that feeling with Lori because it really is a special feeling,” she said. “Annie” first opened on Broadway in 1977 and ran

home & garden Right at Home: Mother Nature meets modern decor Decor inspired by the natural world By Kim Cook The Associated Press‌

Moth-wing light fixtures? Thunderhead wallpaper? If you’re an armchair naturalist, you’ll love one of this year’s big home decor trends. Artists and artisans have captured flora, fauna and even meteorology in media such as photography, illustration, metal and clay. The designs, translated into wall decor and furnishings, range from startling to serene. Clinton Friedman’s garden in Durban, South Africa, is home to more than 250 trees and 150 succulent species. Desiccated leaves, freshly pulled roots and labyrinthine flower heads all serve as material for his close-up photographs. West Elm has previously collaborated with Friedman on a pillow collection; this season they’ve got his 28-inch, square, white-framed prints of aloe plants. The oversize spiky succulents look like flora — or perhaps even fauna — from another planet.

The herbal-tea revolution growing By Maureen Gilmer Scripps-Howard News Service

Associated Press

In this June 16 photo, a person hand-thins apple fruits on a tree in New Paltz, N.Y. Now is the time to start looking over your trees and “thinning,” that is, removing, excess fruitlets. Focus your energy on larger fruits, such as apples, pears, and peaches, because thinning would be too tedious — and fortunately, has little effect — on small fruits such as cherries and small plums.

Fruits may need thinning for growth, flavor By Lee Reich The Associated Press‌

Fruit trees that were so full of blossoms this spring that they looked like giant snowballs foretell a heavy crop of fruit later this year. Too heavy. Too much, perhaps, for the branches to support. And surely so heavy that next year’s harvest could be paltry. Some fruit trees are prone to a feast-and-famine cycle — a heavy crop one year and a light crop the next. My Macoun apple tree is one of the worst in this regard among the score or so apple varieties that I grow. Fortunately, this tendency toward “biennial bearing” can be reined in. BLAME IT ON HORMONES

Hormones produced in fruit seeds are to blame for biennial bearing. The hormones suppress flower-bud formation, which begins in fruit trees the year before the flowers actually unfold. So a heavy crop one year — and, hence, a lot of seeds — quells flower-bud formation that year, and flowering and fruiting the next year. In a year with few fruits, hormone levels stay low, so many flower buds are initiated and in the next year trees are a riot of blooms. The way to thwart this feast-andfamine tendency is to reduce the number of fruits in a tree’s “feast” year.

Pruning is one way to do it — cutting off some stems that would have flowered and gone on to bear fruit. The time for pruning most fruit trees is past, though; it was back in late winter and early spring, before growth began again. Pruning, of course, has effects beyond those on biennial bearing, and each kind of fruit tree has its own pruning needs. Still, as you prune to open a tree up to light and air, and to control its size, you are also removing potential fruits and seeds. And shortening branches puts remaining fruits closer to the trunk, where they are less likely to break a limb. But pruning alone is generally not enough to get a fruit tree out of a bad habit. Now is the time to start looking over your trees and “thinning” — that is, removing — excess fruitlets. Focus your energy on larger fruits, such as apples, pears and peaches, because thinning would be too tedious — and has little effect — on small fruits such as cherries and small plums. TAKE MATTERS IN HAND

The sooner you begin thinning, the greater the benefit next year, especially with apple trees. I use my thumbnail or a pointy pair of flower shears. If you have a lot of trees, you might opt for more laborsaving methods, such as blasts of water from a hose or batting the flowers with a piece of hose slid

over the end of a broomstick. Many commercial orchardists thin their fruits with chemical sprays. No need to complete all the fruit thinning in one session. Ideally, do it in two waves. The first is after fruits begin to form. The second is right after June drop. After carrying extra fruitlets to get it through spring frosts and other early-season calamities, a tree gives a sigh of relief that danger has past, and decides it’s OK to shed some fruits. Once that happens, look over your trees and put a few inches of space between each developing fruit, selectively saving those that are largest and most free of blemishes. FURTHER REWARDS

Fruit thinning has other benefits, too. It reduces pests, such as codling moth — the “worm” in an apple — because Ms. Codling prefers to lay eggs in apples that are touching each other. Fruit thinning also lets the tree pump more energy, which translates into bigger size and better flavor, into those fruits that remain. If you grow Asian pears and want to grow good-tasting ones, be especially bold with fruit thinning. These trees tend to bear heavily, and without bold thinning, the fruits are almost tasteless. Put a few inches between one fruit and the next, and their taste will be ambrosial.

“We began a contest for liberty ill provided with the means for the war, relying on our patriotism to supply the deficiency. We expected to encounter many wants and distressed... we must bear the present evils and fortitude ...” — George Washington in 1781 nnn From “A Social History of Tea” by Jane Pettigrew we find evidence that colonial women actually signed a pledge to swear off imported English tea during that historic boycott. She quotes those who signed this pledge: “We daughters of those patriots who have, and do now appear for the public interest, and in that principally regard their posterity, as do with pleasure engage with them in denying ourselves the drinking of foreign tea, in hope to frustrate a plan that tends to deprive a whole community of all that is valuable to life.” nnn As the American Revolution neared, I have found in my own research over the years, that the women had learned to feed their soldiers and their children alternative teas that were both healthy and locally grown. They began a long and beautiful relationship with herbal tea that remains with us today. What each daughter learned from her mother were the rules about plant-gathering to create the best-tasting drinks. Some were made of young leaves, others of older ones and still more required the boiling of roots or bark to release the flavor. How much plant material to use in a quart of water was important knowledge in terms of preventing toxicity caused by too rich a tea or one consumed too often. This knowledge was shared with their sons and husbands, who learned where to find fresh roots or dry herbs to fill their empty bellies during the

long winter at Valley Forge. During those lean months, scurvy was a very real problem due to lack of fresh food that contained vitamin C. An herb-steeped hot drink was most welcome to stave off hunger and relieve the unsavory symptoms in the citizen soldiers.

Revolutionary tea plants Oswego tea, the most popular herbal tea, was learned from the Oswego tribe, which drank a medicinal tea that was also quite tasty. It was the primary alternative to English tea and grew at virtually every homestead during Revolutionary times. Oswego tea is more commonly known as bee balm, with the leaves and flowers of Monarda didyma proving widely available to soldiers who found the wild stands and harvested their herbs. Sassafras (Sassafras albidum) was mostly drunk in early spring as a tonic, and later used to make root beer. Many families continued to dig roots and bark to turn them into tea year-round. Washington’s armies grew up in the countryside where they knew plants were plentiful, even in winter when bare of leaves. So long as the ground was not frozen, sassafras roots could be dug and boiled during the cold winter for a tasty warm drink when little else could be found. Blackberry leaf was widely available for American soldiers, who also used raspberry and wild strawberry leaves in tea. Its high vitamin C content would prove vital medicine when the gums swelled from poor diet. These leaves were also fermented, just as China tea is cured in Asia, to add more flavor to the blackberry leaf. Goldenrod tea was so widely consumed during Revolutionary times that it became known as “Liberty Tea.”

Space shuttle Atlantis ‘go’ for public viewing Last of NASA ships to fly and open for display By Marcia Dunn AP Aerospace Writer

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The last space shuttle to soar makes its museum debut this weekend, and it’s the belle of NASA’s retirement ball. The Atlantis exhibit opened to the public Saturday at Kennedy Space Center, the centerpiece of a $100 million attraction dedicated to the entire 30year shuttle program. For the first time ever, ordinary Earthlings get to see a space shuttle in a pose previously beheld only by a select few astronauts. Tilted at a deliberate angle of 43.21 degrees — as in 4-3-2-1, liftoff — Atlantis is raised in feigned flight with its payload bay doors wide open and a replicated robot arm outstretched. Toss in a life-size replica of the Hubble Space Telescope and astronaut-captured images of the International Space Station beamed on the wall, and the impact is out-of-this-world. More than 40 astronauts who flew on Atlantis planned to take part in Saturday’s grand opening at the visitor complex, a popular tourist attraction an hour’s drive due east of Orlando. Retired astronaut Bob Springer got a sneak preview last week and liked what he saw. He rode Atlantis into orbit in 1990 — one of its 33 missions from 1985 to 2011. “It’s awesome what they’ve been able to do,” Springer said. So many museum displays are static and cold, he noted. “This is exactly the opposite. It’s like seeing a wild animal in its native habitat. It really looks like you’re looking at Atlantis from an astronaut’s vantage point in space.” Only a small group of astronauts have seen Atlantis like this in orbit — those out on a spacewalk or those aboard a space station watching Atlantis come and go. It makes this perspective — in flight in orbit — all the more riveting. A family visiting from Karlskrona, Sweden, lucked out last week,

among a limited number of tourists granted early access as part of a trial run for the exhibit. “Amazing,” said Peter Trossing, accompanied by his wife and two young daughters. “Pretty cool,” added Cincinnati’s Amanda Cook as her two sons tried out the space station toilet display. Children lined up to pose for pictures on the space potty mock-up. Another hands-on draw for the younger set: two main landing gear tires used on Atlantis’ final touchdown on July 21, 2011. One after another, children spun the tires, which were mounted on a low pedestal. Retired for two years, Atlantis is the last of NASA’s three space shuttles to go on public display. Discovery is parked at a Smithsonian Institution hangar in Chantilly, Va. Endeavour is also horizontal at the California Science Center in Los Angeles; it will be displayed upright in launch position once its permanent exhibition hall is completed in 2018. And the prototype Enterprise rests atop the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York City. The exhibit was closed following damage caused by Superstorm Sandy last fall; the new pavilion opens in two weeks.

Unlike its sister ships, the 155,000-pound Atlantis — tilting to the port, or left, side — has its nose 30 feet off the floor, its right wing 62 feet up and its left wing 7 feet up. Visitors can walk underneath and gaze up at its belly and the thousands of thermal tiles, and all the way around. Towering over the outside entrance is a full-scale model of a shuttle external fuel tank paired with two booster rockets, 184 feet tall just like for launch. Inside are an authentic shuttle main engine (the three engines on Atlantis are facsimiles), astronauts’ spacewalking tools, the

so-called beanie cap that covered the tops of space shuttles on the launch pad, as well as numerous interactive exhibits showcasing the phases of flight. The display does not ignore the NASA’s two lost shuttles — Challenger, destroyed during liftoff in 1986, and Columbia, shattered during descent in 2003. In fact, the short movie viewed before entering the Atlantis gallery pays special homage to NASA’s first shuttle flight, by Columbia, in 1981. The so-called “reveal theater” ends with Atlantis appearing right before the guests. “You want an

emotional connection and you want that wow factor, and it delivers on both of those,” said Tim Macy, director of project development and construction for Delaware North Co., which operates Kennedy’s visitor complex for NASA. Delaware North nabbed Atlantis in a high-stakes national competition two years ago. Kennedy was considered a shoo-in by many, given all 135 shuttle flights began here and most ended here as well. A six-story structure was built to accommodate Atlantis. The fourth and final wall was erected once the

shuttle was towed inside last November. “It’s a doggone big building, and it really tells the shuttle story in an amazing way,” said William Moore, chief operating officer of the visitor complex. Delaware North hopes to recoup some of its $100 million outlay through increased ticket sales. The Atlantis exhibit is included in the ticket price for the visitor center: $50 for adults; $40 for children ages 3-11. ——— Online: Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex: www.

Smithsonian acquires T. rex for new dinosaur hall By Brett Zongker The Associated Press‌

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History is acquiring its first full Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton for eventual display in a new dinosaur hall planned for the museum on the National Mall. The museum announced Thursday that it reached a 50year loan agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to display one of the most complete T. rex specimens ever discovered. It’s known as the “Wankel T. rex.” The rare fossil was found in

1988 by rancher Kathy Wankel on federal land near the Fort Peck Reservoir in eastern Montana. Between 1990 and 2011, the fossil was loaned to the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Mont. The T. rex will be the centerpiece of a new dinosaur hall scheduled to open in 2019. Only a few museums display such nearly complete skeletons, most notably in New York City, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles and Chicago. But the Smithsonian has long wanted a T. Rex of its own for the natural history museum, which draws more than 7 million visitors each year.

Expansion plans revealed for Kentucky Kingdom LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The group behind the comeback of Kentucky Kingdom announced expansion plans Thursday that include erecting a new roller coaster and doubling the size of the water park in hopes of turning the now-shuttered amusement park into a popular regional attraction. “We’re going to be building a bigger, a better and a wetter theme park,” said Ed Hart, who heads the operating group. The new steel coaster and expanded Hurricane Bay water park will be ready in time for the reopening, set for May 2014, he said. It’s part of a strategy to win over visitors and keep them coming back to a park that’s been closed since 2009. “The first impression is the lasting impression,” Hart said. Park operators estimate that first-year attendance will be in the 700,000 to 1 million range, he said. Attendance peaked at slightly more than 1.3 million in 1998. The expansion plans were announced shortly after state and local officials and others signed agreements required for the park’s reopening. Kentucky State Fair Board Chairman Mark

Lynn said that Hart and his partners are “the right people at the right time to restore Kentucky Kingdom to its previous success.” Lynn said a full-scale renovation of the park’s more than 100 buildings and 40 rides is under way. The park is on state fair board property. Hart’s partners in the venture include prominent businessmen Ed Glasscock and Bruce Lunsford and the Al J. Schneider Co. The group plans to spend $43.5 million on the park in the coming three years, including $36 million in the first year, Hart said. Those first-year expenditures will include $12 million to expand the water park and $7 million to install the new roller coaster. The larger water park will feature three new waterslide complexes, a 12,000-square-foot wave lagoon and an adventure river. The partners in Kentucky Kingdom LLLP will provide $28.5 million in capital for revamping the park in the first three years, he said. The group secured a $15 million bank loan. In 2015, the park plans to unveil a makeover of its suspended looping coaster.

Museum Director Kirk Johnson, a paleontologist, said the world’s largest natural history museum and the world’s most famous dinosaur are finally coming together. “It’s sort of a match made in heaven,” he said. “It needed to be done a long time ago. We’ve done it now.” T. rex was one of the largest meat-eating animals to ever live on land. It weighed more than 5 tons and reached 40 feet in length. The dinosaur roamed across much of western North America between 66 million and 68 million years ago. Most fossils have been discovered in Montana, the Dakotas,

Wyoming and in Canada. But Smithsonian field crews have never worked in those areas to dig to find a T. rex, Johnson said. “It’s a rare animal,” Johnson said. “Think about this: T. rex is sort of the most iconic of all dinosaurs, and to have a real one is like having the Hope Diamond.” The diamond and the new dinosaur specimen will likely be the must-see attractions at the museum in the future, he said. Previously, the Smithsonian only had plastic and plaster reproductions of a T. rex. The Smithsonian is planning a temporary exhibition about

the world of the T. rex next year before the permanent exhibit opens. This summer, the museum is sending a team to North Dakota to collect fossils of other plants and animals that lived at the time of the T. rex, Johnson said, “to flesh out that world and bring that world back for our visitors.” ——— National Museum of Natural History: ——— Follow Brett Zongker on Twitter at DCArtBeat

Oil pipe defect caused 2010 Qantas engine blowout Australian investigators say manufacturing error in oil pipe caused 2010 Qantas engine blowout By Kristen Gelineau The Associated Press‌

SYDNEY (AP) — The dramatic disintegration of a Qantas Airbus A380 jet engine during a flight in 2010 was triggered by a poorly built oil pipe that failed to conform to design specifications, Australian investigators said Thursday in their final report into the emergency. The Rolls-Royce engine exploded on the Qantas A380 shortly after takeoff from Singapore, forcing an emergency landing and becoming the most significant safety issue the superjumbo had faced since starting passenger flights in 2007. Rolls-Royce faced intense scrutiny of its engines, and A380s around the world were temporarily grounded. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau’s report confirmed the agency’s earlier findings that an oil leak from a pipe inside one of the plane’s massive Trent 900 engines sparked a fire. The fire caused a disintegration of one of the engine’s giant turbine discs, sending pieces of it blasting through the plane’s wing. The agency, which led an international investigation into the Qantas engine breakup, concluded that the walls of several pipes were too thin and didn’t

conform to design specifications. The error prompted a disastrous domino effect, with the weak wall of the pipe breaking down, then cracking and finally releasing oil into the superheated engine, sparking the fire. The transport agency said Rolls-Royce has identified all the affected pipes, overhauled its quality management system and implemented a safety feature that should shut an engine down before it can blow apart if the same scenario ever happened again. Rolls-Royce said it supported the agency’s findings and had improved its manufacturing and design processes. “This was a serious and rare event which we very much regret,” Colin Smith, director of engineering and technology for Rolls-Royce said in a statement. “At Rolls-Royce we continually strive to meet the high standards of safety, quality and reliability that our customers and their passengers are entitled to expect. On this occasion we clearly fell short.” The Nov. 4, 2010, engine blowout sent debris raining down onto Indonesia’s Batam Island. The plane landed safely and no one was hurt, but the emergency forced the temporary grounding of 20 A380s with Trent 900 engines, operated by Qantas, Singapore Airlines and Germany’s Lufthansa. Qantas later reached a $86 million settlement with Rolls-Royce. “This was an unprecedented event and, as the report confirms, all possible steps have been taken to ensure that it can never happen again,” Qantas said in a statement.

Plug-in hybrids stretch mileage, your dollar BY WILL CHAMBERLAIN For the Herald-Standard

Hybrid technology is getting more refined every year. Several manufacturers have adopted this technology and incorporated it into popular passenger sedans to increase mileage while maintaining the comfort and style of an already winning sedan formula. For city dwellers and folks with a small daily commute to work, electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids can save a considerable amount in fuel costs, as I found during my test of the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid vehicle. The Prius Plug-in combines the benefit of the standard Prius model’s hybrid vehicle operation with extended electric vehicle driving. This model can allow true EV operation and performance for up to 15 miles along with quick home charging using a standard AC outlet and 15-amp dedicated circuit. For city commutes around the area, for example, you can drive under complete battery power for up to 15 miles before the hybrid system engages. Total electric mileage varies based on the topography of the area you are driving and what features you are using within the car such as the stereo, air conditioning and heated seats. What I find useful about this model is that you have two available driving modes: EV and Hybrid. When fully charged, the EV mode is excellent to get you around town and home without

using a drop of gas. Even when you run out of EV charge and switch to hybrid mode, you can still benefit from full electric driving if you are in traffic or driving through town. You can charge the car going down hills and with the engine brake. To achieve the most efficiency with this vehicle, the majority of your commuting needs to be within a 10-15 mile radius. Charging the car every night and being conscience of your driving habits to optimize the battery charge will reward the driver with almost 100 percent electric driving. For example, I was able to achieve 72 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) because I charged the car every night, only had a 12-mile daily commute to work, day care and home. Some days I drove a little more and ran out of EV range so the hybrid

system kicked in to keep me going. In hybrid mode I managed to average 55 MPG. This is some pretty neat technology, but there are some drawbacks. The varieties of steep hills locally really take a toll on the charged battery and can kill the whole charge if you are too heavy on the pedal. Acceleration cannot be a priority if you are trying to achieve the best economy.. You will often be the slowest car in the pack when the light turns green. This last issue is probably the most troubling to me — the silence. While driving in EV mode is pretty cool and efficient, it’s too quiet and doesn’t alert pedestrians, bike riders, small kids and other motorists that you are nearby. Several times during my test I had to be extra careful because people walking in downtown Beaver just didn’t hear the car coming and the vehicle horn startled them. Bike riders looking to cross streets didn’t hear the car but saw me at the last moment before turning directly into my path. Perhaps a chime or bell of some sort should be installed so you can politely alert people that you are approaching without causing a heart attack blasting the regular horn. Total vehicle pricing for the Plug-in Hybrid is $33,138 and depending on your commute and driving habits can provide you from 50 MPG in Hybrid mode up to 95 MPGe combining full EV mode. I achieved a combined 72 MPGe and only burned 5 gallons of fuel during my test.

Montaigne (1533-1592) is considered one of the most influential writers of the French Renaissance. DID YOU KNOW? The “techy” name for a person who studies fleas is a “pullicologist.” Q: I have a really silly question for you: How many last names of U.S. presidents can be typed with one hand only? I could figure it out, but it will be fun to see my initials in your column! — K.L.C., Peoria, Ill. A: With your left hand, you can type Taft, the 27th president, and Carter, the 39th president. Using your right hand, you can type Polk, the 11th president. Q: K.L.C. again. I have another silly question for you: Which state can you type using only one hand? — K.L.C., Peoria, Ill. A: With your right hand, you can type Ohio; with your left hand, you can

type Texas. There is only one state capital that can be typed with one hand: Honolulu. Q: Does Dr Pepper contain prune juice? — R.E., Bedford, Ill. A: In a word: NO! According to the company, the unique taste comes from 23 flavors, none of which are prunes. The prune juice rumor is an old one — it’s been around since the 1930s. Q: I’ve collected cigar bands for many years. Is there a name for a person in my hobby? — K.E.L., Zanesville, Ohio A: You are a brandophile. Q: When did Disney World open? — W.J.M., Springfield, Mass. A: The Walt Disney World Resort opened to the public on Oct. 1, 1971, in in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., opened on July 17, 1955.

Ask Mr. Know-it-all By Gary Clothier

Q: I turned 13 on Sept. 9, 1956. That was the night I saw Elvis Presley for the first time on television, during “The Ed Sullivan Show.” That wasn’t his first TV appearance. When was it? — J.S., Alton, Ill. A: Elvis Presley first appeared on CBS’ “Stage Show” on Jan. 28, 1956. “Stage Show” was produced by Jackie Gleason and hosted by big band leaders Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey. Presley made a total of six appearances on the show by the end of March. Next came two appearances on “The Milton Berle Show” and one appearance on “The Steve Allen Show.” Finally, on your birthday, he appeared on Ed Sullivan’s show. He made two more appearances on that show, the last being Jan. 6, 1957. Q: As a kid, one of

my favorite movies was “Mister Roberts.” What was the name of the ship? When was the film released? — K.S.Z., Concord, Calif. A: “Mister Roberts” was released in 1955. The name of the cargo ship was the USS Reluctant, which was affectionately called “the Bucket.” The film, which takes place in the Pacific theater during World War II, starred Henry Fonda, James Cagney, William Powell, Jack Lemmon, Betsy Palmer and Ward Bond. Q: I can only paraphrase the quote, “My life has had terrible things, but most never happened.” Can you tell me the actual quote and who wrote it? — H.W., Denton, Texas A: “My life has been full of terrible misfortunes, most of which never happened.” Michel de Montaigne wrote the sentiment.
