U.S. preparing for N. Korea actions BAGRAM, Afghanistan (AP) — The top U.S. military officer said Sunday the Pentagon had bolstered its missile defenses and taken other steps because he “can’t take the chance” that North Korea won’t soon engage in some military action. Heightened tensions with North Korea led the United States to postpone congressional testimony by the chief U.S. commander in South Korea and delay

BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan (AP) — The United States accepts that a diminished but resilient Taliban is likely to remain a military threat in some parts of Afghanistan long after U.S. troops complete their combat mission next year, the top U.S. military officer said Sunday. In an Associated Press interview at this air field north of Kabul, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he is cautiously optimistic that the Afghan army will hold its own against the insurgency as Western troops pull back and Afghans assume the lead combat role. He said that by May or June, the Afghans will be in the lead throughout the country. Asked whether some parts of the country will remain contested by the Taliban, he replied, “Yes, of course there will be.” “And if we were having this conversation 10 years from now, I suspect there would (still) be contested areas because the history of Afghanistan suggests that there will always be contested areas,” he said. He and other U.S. commanders have said that ultimately the Afghans must reach some sort of accommodation STAFF PHOTO/ANTHONY WEBER political Troy resident Tiffany Blount, a member of Living Word Church in Vandalia, has with the insurgents, and a reconciliation plans of being part of a mission trip which includes 11 countries in 11 months. that process needs to be led by Afghans, not Americans.

Hoops at Hobart was special The Troy Christian basketball team’s run to the state tournament this year brought back some memories. Mind you, they weren’t exactly personal memories — none of the teams I played on ever made it out of the district. We’d win a game, then have to play Springfield North or Springfield South and it would be “see you next winter.” But it did bring back some memories about Hobart Arena and the days when some really great basketball games took place there.

Afghan forces. Shortly after Dempsey arrived in Afghanistan on Saturday, the Taliban demonstrated its ability to strike. It claimed responsibility for a suicide car bombing that killed five Americans three soldiers and two civilians, including Anne Smedinghoff, a foreign service officer and the first American diplomat killed overseas since the terrorist attack Sept. 11 in Benghazi, Libya. A fierce battle between U.S.-backed Afghan forces and Taliban militants in a remote corner of eastern Afghanistan left nearly 20 people dead, including 11 Afghan children killed in an airstrike, Afghan officials said Sunday. There are now about 66,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan. That number is to drop to about 32,000 by February 2014, and the combat mission is to end in December 2014. Whether some number perhaps 9,000 or 10,000 remain into 2015 as military trainers and counterinsurgents is yet to be decided. Dempsey spent two days talking to senior Afghan officials, including his counterpart, Gen. Sher Mohammad Karimi, as well as top U.S. and allied commanders. He also visited a U.S. base in the volatile eastern province of Paktika for an update on how U.S. troops are balancing the twin missions of advising Afghan forces and withdrawing tons of U.S. equipment as

many issues broadcasters discuss at their national meeting, called the NAB Show, taking place this week in Las Vegas. While show creators and networks make money from this group’s viewing habits through deals with online video providers and from advertising on their own websites and apps, broadcasters only get paid when they relay such programming in traditional ways. Unless broadcasters can adapt to modern platforms, their revenue from Zero TV viewers will be zero. “Getting broadcast programing on all the gizmos and gadgets like tablets, the backseats of cars, and laptops is hugely important,” says Dennis Wharton, a spokesman for the National Association of Broadcasters.

people with no place else to go to stay with the family, buying meals for strangers and buying groceries for families in need. When she graduated from high school, Blount said she was ready to keep giving in another way — she was set to go to nursing school — when her life took a different path. “I was planning to be a nurse, but I took a year off to take an internship as a youth pastor,� Blount said. “That was seven years ago and I just fell in love with it. When my pastor came down here to work (at Living Word Church in Vandalia), he asked if I would come down here to work. That’s what brought me here. I love it here.� Even if she won’t be staying much longer. Blount has been on mission trips before, but nothing quite like this one. When she’s not working at the church, she spends most of her free time either trying to raise money for the trip or trying to figure out how she’s going to pack. Blount, who says she owns more than 100 pairs of shoes and is “definitely a girly-girl,� will spend nearly a year sleeping in a tent and carrying with her only what she can fit in a backpack. “I’m definitely not a camper,� she said. “But I can do it if I have to. It’s definitely going to be a stretch for me. But I think it will help me grow as a person.� That’s hardly the only concern, however. The journey will take her to Ireland, Romania, Ukraine, India, Nepal, Swaziland, Mozambique, South Africa, Thailand, Cambodia and Taiwan. While she doesn’t have many concerns for her safety — “Honestly, I’m more worried about fitting everything I need in my backpack,� she said — she says her family members have expressed some hesitation. “I’m always going to be the American girl in a foreign country — I stick out like a sore thumb,� Blount said. “My mom is really

consulted with Thurman about the rising tensions on the Korean peninsula. Dempsey said both Thurman and South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, Gen. Jung Seung-jo, decided it would be best for them to remain in Seoul rather than come to Washington. The Korean general had planned to meet with Dempsey, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, in mid-April for regular talks. Dempsey said that instead of meeting in person with Thurman and Jung in Washington, they will consult together by video-teleconference. The Pentagon has postponed an intercontinental ballistic missile test that was set for the coming week at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, a senior defense official told the AP on Saturday. The official said U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel decided to put off the long-planned Minuteman 3 test until April because of concerns the launch could be misinterpreted and exacerbate the Korean crisis. Hagel made the decision Friday, the official said. North Korea’s military said this past week that it was authorized to attack the U.S. using “smaller, lighter and diversified� nuclear weapons. North Korea also conducted a nuclear test in February and in December launched a long-range rocket that could potentially hit the continental U.S. The U.S. has moved two of the Navy’s missiledefense ships closer to the Korean peninsula, and a land-based system is being deployed to the Pacific territory of Guam later this month.

Although Wharton says more than 130 TV stations in the U.S. are broadcasting live TV signals to mobile devices, few people have the tools to receive them. Most cellphones require an add-on device known as a dongle, but these gadgets are just starting to be sold. Among this elusive group of consumers is Jeremy Carsen Young, a

graphic designer, who is done with traditional TV. Young has a working antenna sitting unplugged on his back porch in Roanoke, Va., and he refuses to put it on the roof. “I don’t think we’d use it enough to justify having a big eyesore on the house,� the 30-year-old says. Online video subscriptions from Netflix Inc. and Inc. which cost less than $15 a month combined have given him and his partner plenty to watch. They take in back episodes of AMC’s “The Walking Dead� and The CW’s “Supernatural,� and they don’t need more, he says.

without being pushed by the U.S. or by Kabul. This has happened in recent weeks in the Panjwai district of Kandahar province, a traditional stronghold of the Taliban. The Andar district of Ghazni province has seen a similar uprising. “We should encourage it, but we shouldn’t be seen as hijacking� these local movements, he said. Dempsey said he discussed the uprisings with Karimi, the army chief, and the Afghan defense minister, Bismullah Khan Mohammadi. They told him they “appreciated that they should allow this to occur (and) they should probably nurture it. They don’t necessarily feel at this point as if they should tangibly support it.� The Afghan government’s concern, Dempsey said, is that influential warlords could embrace these local movements and eventually leverage them to threaten the armed forces of the central government. In a separate interview Sunday with al-Hurra, the Arabic-language satellite TV channel funded by the U.S. government, Dempsey was asked whether he worries that Syria, in the midst of a civil war, could become another Afghanistan. “I do. I have grave concerns that Syria could become an extended conflict� that drags on for many years, he said.

its U.S.-based missile defenses. The defense official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the Minuteman 3 test delay and requested anonymity, said U.S. policy continues to support the building and testing of its nuclear deterrent capabilities. The official said the launch was not put off because of any technical problems. Dempsey said he was not familiar with details of the Minuteman decision because he was traveling in Afghanistan. But, he said, “it would be consistent with our intent here, which is to do what we have to do to posture ourselves to deter (North Korea), and to assure our allies. So things that can be delayed should be delayed.� A South Korean national security official said Sunday that North Korea may be setting the stage for a missile test or another provocative act. Citing North Korea’s suggestion that diplomats leave the country, South Korean President Park Geun-hye’s national security director said the North may be planning a missile launch or another provocation around Wednesday, according to presidential spokeswoman Kim Haing. In Washington, an adviser to President Barack Obama said “we wouldn’t be surprised if they did a test. They’ve done that in the past.� Aide Dan Pfeiffer told ABC’s “This Week� that “the key here is for the North Koreans to stop their actions, start meeting their international obligations, and put themselves in a position where they can achieve what is their stated goal, which is economic development, which will only happen if they rejoin the international community.�

Out-of-state applicants top in-state at Ohio State COLUMBUS (AP) — The number of out-of-state applications to Ohio State University surpassed those from Ohio residents for the first time this year, as the university tries to offset a decline in the number of students graduating from high school in the state. The university attributes the higher out-ofstate applicants to its recruiting efforts in growing population areas in the Southwest and Southeast, along with overseas outreach in China, India and soon, Brazil. The goal is creating a “brain gain” for Ohio State and for Ohio itself, said Dolan Evanovich, the university’s vice president for strategic enrollment planning. The idea is to “bring in a very talented diverse pool of students to come to Ohio State that will eventually become Ohio residents and taxpayers,” Evanovich said. “That’s kind of the mantra, the strategy we’re implementing.” Of Ohio State’s 35,000 applications for the upcoming school year, a record 56 percent are from out of state, Evanovich said. Compare that with a decade ago, when just 26 percent of applicants were nonresidents. Ohio State, typically among the country’s three biggest universities, has added recruiters in the past couple of years in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and New York The university City. already had recruiters in Chicago and Washington, D.C. The university has also opened “gateway” outreach centers in Shanghai and Mumbai, India. And President Gordon Gee

recently returned from Sao Paolo, Brazil, where the university hopes to add a third center. The record number of out-of-state applicants “shows the growing national, international nature of the university,” Gee said. Students from Ohio still make up most of the university’s enrollment, with three of every four students last year coming from within the state. But that’s down from 1995, when it was more than nine of every 10. In addition, the number of first-year students from overseas in 2012 was 8.2 percent, compared with just 2.2 percent in 1995. Out-of-state students also represent revenue for the university. Annual instate tuition and fees at Ohio State’s flagship campus in Columbus are $10,037, compared with $25,445 for out-of-state students. Gee has proposed freezing tuition for in-state students but not out-of-state, a proposal trustees will consider in June. Evanovich said it’s fair to charge out-of-state students more since they aren’t being subsidized by Ohio taxpayers. “It’s really been our driver to diversify our campus, and be a national and international university, but that extra revenue does help in tight economic times,” Evanovich said. The university has also begun efforts to keep its students in the state after graduation. Last year, as part of freshman orientation, the university brought 7,000 new students to a downtown arena to hear the mayor extol the benefits of Columbus. That approach has

appeal to Jamie Schertz, an Ohio State junior from Napierville, Ill. She followed her big sister, Erica, to Ohio because of the course offerings and generous financial aid. A younger sister, Adrienne, also goes to Ohio State. “Columbus has a lot to offer,” said Schertz, 21, a communications and marketing major. “I would definitely consider staying if I had the opportunity to do what I wanted.” Like Ohio State, Miami University in southwestern Ohio has added recruiters around the country, including Atlanta, Chicago, New Haven, Conn., San Diego and the Washington, D.C., suburbs. It’s also looking to expand recruiting in China and India. Applications to Miami from out-of-state students in the U.S. have increased by 30 percent over the past five years, and those from international students by almost 300 percent. The University of Arkansas has also looked actively out of state, with recruiters in California, Illinois, Oklahoma and Texas, and nearly doubled the number of nonresident students between 2008 and 2012, said Suzanne McCray, the university’s vice provost for enrollment and dean of admissions. As in Ohio, the university hopes out-of-state students who come to the university will stay after graduation, while those who return home will tell positive stories about Arkansas. “We’re looking to have a very vibrant campus in many diverse ways,” McCray said. “Diversity in state origin is good for everyone.”

Two Ohio kayakers missing SANDUSKY (AP) — Northern Ohio authorities along Lake Erie are searching for a father and his 12year-old daughter who were last seen in their kayaks early Saturday night. A sheriff midway between Toledo and



Cleveland says searchers found the two empty kayaks Sunday morning, but there’s no sign of the man and his daughter. Authorities say the pair did not have life jackets when they set out on Sandusky Bay just west of the city of Sandusky.

Erie County Sheriff Paul Sigsworth says the father and daughter were planning to paddle across the bay to a bridge and back. The U.S. Coast Guard and local authorities are searching the water and the shoreline.

Composting 101

Word of the Week composting — a mixture of decaying organic matter, as from leaves and manure, used to improve soil structure and provide nutrients

Did You Know? BENEFITS OF COMPOST TO YOUR GARDEN • improves soil structure in all soils, and therefore: • improves water retention in loose, sandy soils; • improves drainage in heavy, clayey soils; • prevents the soil surface from crusting, easing the emergence of seedlings; • resists compaction, making it easier for roots to penetrate the soil; • helps balance pH, making alkaline soils more acidic and acidic soils more alkaline; • provides a good environment for the microbes, earthworms and insects that break down soil constituents into plant nutrients; • nourishes microbes that protect against some plant diseases; • reduces the need for other soil amendments and for fertilizer; • provides many micro-nutrients and low levels of macronutrients; • improves the soil's retention of nutrients, thus increasing the amount of time they are available to plants; • slows the leaching of nutrients, thus preventing them from reaching and polluting water; • encourages healthy plants, thus reducing the need for pesticides and fungicides. BENEFITS TO THE ENVIRONMENT • reduces the amount of garbage in landfills, and therefore: • reduces the greenhouse gases produced by hauling garbage; • reduces the amount of methane produced by landfills; • helps prevent runoff and soil erosion; • helps remediate (decontaminate) polluted soils, binding some contaminates in the soil and increasing plant uptake by others, allowing their removal from contaminated sites; • reduces the need for environmentally damaging pesticides and fertilizers.

Have you ever noticed how some people have beautiful, vibrant flower gardens or grow large, scrumptious looking vegetables almost with ease? They might have a green thumb, but chances are better that it’s their soil. If you use compost, your soil has a richer composition that is better for your veggies and flowers. This healthy and sturdy soil produces those gorgeous flowers and mouth-watering vegetables we all wish we could have in our own gardens. Guess what? Now you can have them. It just takes a little knowhow about composting. Composting is not hard. The entire family can get in on the act. If you have a family garden, composting will be quite helpful to you. Let’s discuss the benefits of composting as well as how to create a compost pile that can enrich your soil naturally and produce those growing beauties. COMPOSTING IS HEALTHY FOR THE ENVIRONMENT Creating compost reduces the amount of trash in the landfill. We throw away a lot of food, which is the majority of our waste. Using those food scraps in compost gives precious nutrients back to the soil instead of

the garbage heap. Basically, composting is the process of using plant matter and other materials to enrich the soil. You let the items decompose and blend them in with the soil as nourishment for whatever you are growing. You also can use compost as mulch in flower gardens instead of wood chips or pine needles. GETTING STARTED WITH YOUR OWN COMPOST PILE So how do you begin? First, find a place to compost. You can buy compost bins or make your own. With an inconspicuous place in the back yard, you don’t even need a bin. Compost will decompose in a pile all by itself. Once you’ve chosen your location and storage unit (or none at all), it’s time to begin filling it. Composting problems occur when the wrong things are added to the compost pile. That’s why it’s important to know what you can safely and effectively add. WHAT TO INCLUDE IN YOUR COMPOST PILE There are two types of compost materials that fill two needs of the compost pile. First, there are the wood products. Those

include wood chip, straw and leaves. You also can throw those pesky weeds on the compost pile as well. These materials add pockets of space to the compost pile so air can reach everything that goes into it. Secondly, you have the food material and grasses. Grass clippings, fruit rinds, vegetable waste, and even coffee grounds make great compost. Compost needs to be moist for the bacteria to survive and digest properly. This type of material is what provides the moisture. As long as your compost pile has air and a moderate amount of moisture, the bacteria, along with insects and worms,

will do their job. When these two things are absent, you get the yucky foul smell of garbage. Constantly turn the compost pile over with a rake or hoe so all the material gets air. Ever wonder why food sent to the garbage doesn’t just decompose? It’s because it doesn’t get air in the garbage pile. Compost is ready when the ingredients are not recognizable anymore. It usually takes on a dark brown color once it’s ready. Use your leftovers and lawn trimmings to grow a beautiful lawn, flowers or vegetable garden by creating a compost pile. You can start anytime. Why not today?

You can’t even make this stuff up I realize that most people couldn’t care less about who the State Superintendent of Public Instruction is (you should, though), but to those of us who continue to be dragged around by the throats by the people in the Governor’s office and the Ohio Department of Education (ODE), the selection of former Reynoldsburg Superintendent Richard Ross, while entirely predictable, is a big deal for many reasons. First of all, the State Board of Education spent nearly $50,000 of yours and my money on a “nationwide search” that resulted in two finalists hailing from Columbus; the interim superintendent, Michael Sawyers, and Ross. Ross was Governor Kasich’s second hand-selected education “czar” (Bob Sommers being the first) and the man the governor entrusted with creating the new education budget; the one currently being skewered in the House of Representatives. Before coming to ODE, Sawyers got himself into a little trouble for using a school district credit card for personal purchases, a problem he said was an honest mistake that he made when confusing the school’s card with his own. He subsequently repaid the district the money As I he owed them and all was forgiven. Ross, on the other hand, has a DUI conviction See It in his recent past and a little over a month ago he ■ The Troy stood in front of 500 superintendents and either A) Daily News lied to us about the education budget he helped welcomes create or B) was so ill-informed about his own columns from work that what he said it was supposed to do our readers.

As I stated above, Mr. Ross was the governor’s second “czar.” Sommers was also in line to become the state superintendent a couple of years ago, but there was this pesky little state law in place called the “Revolving Door Policy.” This law would have prohibited Sommers from communicating with the governor for a full year had he been installed as superintendent because of conflict of interest. How could the governor control education in this state if he couldn’t tell the superintendent what to do? He couldn’t, so the plan was scrapped. Now, fast forward to today when a person from the very same position has now ascended to the ODE throne. How could this happen? According to the Columbus Dispatch, “Kasich administration officials fixed that issue this time around by successfully lobbying lawmakers to change Ohio’s revolving door policy.” Problem solved. Kasich has his puppet in place. I suppose we should be pleased that we aren’t continuing with the charade that the state superintendent is an independent thinking educator who is interested in making decisions based on something other than a politician’s platform. But, somehow simply ending a charade doesn’t seem like enough. Is it any wonder that the ODE has no credibility at all in the eyes of the educators of Ohio? Hopefully it will have none in your eyes as well.

LETTERS Los Angeles Times on the Atlanta cheating scandal: If a student cheats on an important test, such as a midterm, he is punished, and rightly so. His teacher doesn’t merely brush aside the offense and blame it on all the stressful and unnecessary high-stakes tests that today’s unfortunate students are required to take. Yet every time an educator is caught in a test-cheating scandal, the teachers union response is as predictable as 2 plus 2: Of course cheating is wrong, but what else can we expect when policymakers stress achievement on standardized tests — and espe-

cially when, as in this case, there were financial bonuses attached to higher scores? It happened again Tuesday, as Atlanta educators surrendered to authorities after being indicted in the nation’s biggest and most blatant example of systemic cheating. Close to 200 teachers and principals in the Atlanta schools admitted to fixing students’ incorrect answers and other wrongdoing; the indictment names 35 people, including the former superintendent of schools. Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, issued a joint statement with

the head of the Georgia Federation of Teachers that condemned the misdeeds and declared that cheating could not be condoned under any circumstances. By all means, policy makers should reexamine how extreme reliance on standards tests, which measure a limited portion of what students have learned, might harm education. But cheating isn’t one of the issues they should consider. Holding pizza parties while tampering with student answer sheets, as some teachers in Atlanta did, isn’t a natural reaction to academic or career pressure. It’s dishonesty, plain and simple.

Basketball was a thing to behold at Hobart The Troy Christian basketball team’s run to the state tournament this year brought back some memories. Mind you, they weren’t exactly personal memories — none of the teams I played on ever made it out of the district. We’d win a game, then have to play Springfield North or Springfield South and it would be “see you next winter.” But it did bring back some memories about Hobart Arena and the days when some really great basketball games took place there. There were a couple things about Hobart that made it special. There just weren’t a lot of places like it back then -- high schools didn’t have the great gyms like many do today. So it had a kind of aura about it. Also, you went there to watch or play basketball. There were no obnoxious loud rap songs played at decibel levels that make jet airplanes sound quiet. I’m not sure when someone decided that sporting events had to include deafening music, but if I wanted that I’d go to a concert. There might be a pep band there, but that sure beat piped-in ear-shattering music. Just saying. On the other hand, you have to understand this was pre-renovation Hobart Arena. There were

David Lindeman Troy Daily News Columnist some definite disadvantages to playing there. First of all, the locker rooms were the size of closets. The one I remember had maybe two little shower stalls. If you liked togetherness with a bunch of other teenage boys, it was the place to be. Generally speaking, few people, including teenage boys, think that’s a lot of fun. Then there was the floor. The portable floor they put down in those days had a few dead spots in it. You had to do a little pre-game investigation to check out those spots and be aware of them when you took off down the court, just in case when you dribbled the ball it didn’t come all the way back up. The other problem was that Hobart Arena could seat a lot of people, so to really get any noise generated the game had to draw a lot of paying customers. This

almost never happened during the regular season, when we played our home games there. Believe me, it’s much better having a home court like Troy High School has now than to play in a giant, halffilled cave on a court you couldn’t even practice on. But tournament games were another thing all together. One game in particular stands out in my mind. It was my senior year in high school and we had been eliminated by one Springfield or the other. It turned out that North and South were playing in the district final. They would pack open space on the floor with chairs for this kind of game and every seat in the house was taken. Long before the game started, long before the two teams even came out to warm up, North fans on one side of the court and South fans on the other engaged in a cheering war. One side would stand up and chant some kind of insult, then the other side would get up and answer. This went on for a long time. The noise inside the arena was deafening before the game ever started. It was basketball the way it was meant to be played. Everyone in the place felt like he or she was part of the game. I would have given anything to play in that

kind of game, but we always ran into a Springfield too early in the tournament. As I remember, and this was a long time ago, North won that game. Now there is only one Springfield high school so that rivalry never will happen again. There were some other great games played at Hobart back when I was in school. I remember seeing Tom Dunn playing for Covington, throwing up (and making) shots from all over the court. I remember Randy’s Thompson’s Tipp City team beating someone — maybe Lehman — before a packed house. I remember Dick Steineman outplaying all comers and Denny Dickensheets with his jump shot from around the free throw line. I even remember playing in a few good games, but my memory after all these years is a little bit suspect since I only remember the ones we won, and I know there were more that we lost. Watching Troy Christian took me back in time for a little while. And you know what? Except for the music and where they play the game, things haven’t really changed that much.

Mom: ‘BUCKWILD’ star a Christian, now in heaven Auditorium. “He said about a month ago, ‘I know when I die I’m going to heaven.’” Dressed in a hot-pink “Gandee Candy” T-shirt and jeans, she spoke only a few words but bellowed out an unaccompanied hymn, her voice echoing through the auditorium in prayer for their reunion. Gandee, his 48-year-old uncle, David Gandee, and 27-year-old friend Donald Robert Myers were found 2380066

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — For all his on-camera carousing and cussing, “BUCKWILD” reality TV star Shain Gandee was a publicly proclaimed and baptized Christian, and his mother told hundreds of mourners Sunday that she will see him again. “I know where Shain is,” Loretta Gandee told the family, friends and fans crammed into the Charleston Municipal

dead April 1 in a sport utility vehicle that was partially submerged in a deep mud pit near Sissonville. They had last been seen leaving a bar at 3 a.m. Autopsies determined all three died of carbon monoxide poisoning, possibly caused by the tailpipe being submerged in mud. That could have allowed the invisible gas to fill the vehicle’s cabin. Shain Gandee, nicknamed “Gandee Candy” by fans, was a breakout star of the show that followed the antics of young friends enjoying their wild country lifestyle. Season one was filmed last year, mostly around Sissonville and Charleston. The Rev. Randy Campbell told the many young people in the crowd he understands that life bombards them with difficult choices.

But he urged them to follow Shain Gandee’s lead and embrace their faith now, while they are energetic and engaged. “This life will hand you a lot of things and call it pleasure, but there is nothing that brings greater joy to a person’s heart than serving the Lord,” Campbell said. “You may think at this point, you’re having fun, but those days will pass.” When they do, he said, God is all that matters. Cameras were not allowed at the funeral or private family burial in Thaxton Cemetery. As hundreds filed past the two closed coffins on the auditorium stage, a slideshow of family photos showed the simple life that Shain Gandee lived long before TV cameras started following him. Set to country music

were snapshots of him as a uniformed pee wee football player, as a teenager in a tuxedo for prom, then graduating from high school in a black gown and mortarboard. In other images, he kissed a bride and held babies. In several, he wore hunting camouflage, displaying a slain buck by its antlers and lining up a batch of gray squirrels on a bench. Gandee favored fourwheelers, pickups and SUVs over cellphones and computers, and “mudding,” or off-road driving, was one of his favorite pastimes. It was no coincidence some mourners arrived in mud-splattered trucks. Dreama and Charlie Frampton, who live a few doors down, said Gandee had been playing in the mud since he was 5. “If it wasn’t a four-wheel

drive truck,” Dreama said, “it was a four-wheeler or a dirt bike.” “He was dedicated to the sport,” Charlie added. “That’s all you can do out in the country.” Gandee’s family asked mourners to wear camouflage or the neon-colored Gandee Candy T-shirts to the service because Shain didn’t like to dress up. Ricky Sater, 23, said his friend would have loved the sea of camo and T-shirts that filled the auditorium. “He probably would walk in there going, ‘BUCKWILD!’” he said. Sater has known Shain since middle school and last saw him a week ago, when he came over to borrow a pin for a trailer hitch. “He said, ‘See ya, Rick!’ and I said, ‘See ya, drunk!” recalled Sater, who got the terrible news days later in a phone call.




You might forever be linked to the rough time in friend’s life Dear Annie: I am a 44-yearold guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. I met "Lisa" two years ago. I was fresh out of a divorce. Lisa was in terrible shape. Her mother had just died, and shortly after, she lost her fiance in a traffic accident. Then she moved back home to take care of her ailing father. It was love at first sight for me. But Lisa never fully grieved over her fiance. She told me he was her "soul mate," and that she would never love another man the way she loved him. I told her I have all the patience in the world and would be there for her through her grief and sorrow. I knew she needed to deal with this in her own way, which included getting his name tattooed on her back. Again, I was patient and understanding. Lisa's family began inviting me to their home. But her family had been exceptionally close to her fiance and began posting things on Facebook to remind Lisa of him. It finally reached the point where I had to say something, and I talked to Lisa's cousin. I said posting such things keeps the fiance's memory fresh in Lisa's mind, which doesn't help her heal. I asked the cousin to please get the family to stop doing this. Well, my request got back to Lisa, who became hostile and negative toward me. She broke things off. Annie, I love Lisa with every ounce of my being. Was I wrong to speak up? — Lonely and Still in Love Dear Lonely: You meant well, but talking to Lisa's cousin was inappropriate and appeared as if you were going behind her back and being controlling. Lisa has had a rough time. Regardless of what her family was posting online, she wasn't ready to get back into the dating pool. It's also likely that she will always connect you to this unfortunate time. Please move on. This ship has sailed. Dear Annie: I am an adopted 14-year-old and an only child. I would like to get in touch with my biological family. Everybody tells me to wait until I am 18, but I feel I should be able to contact at least one biological parent. From what my adoptive mom tells me, I have an older brother. I was also told that my parents tried to find my biological father, but out of the five names listed on the adoption papers, none of them matched. Is there any way to contact my family? Even if I can't find my mom, is there a way I could find my brother and speak with him? — Adopted in Arizona Dear Arizona: Please do not do this without the support of your family. Finding biological parents and siblings is not always the joyful reunion you dream of, and sometimes things don't turn out well. It also can be hurtful to your adoptive parents if your relationship with them is undergoing changes, as it often does during the teen years, and you think your biological family will be "better." There is a reason reputable organizations insist that you be 18 or older to search. Please ask your parents for help with the International Soundex Reunion Registry ( Dear Annie: "Pining for Rome" complains, "The foods and pastimes that I've become fond of are nonexistent in America." Nonsense. Granted, she may not see games of bocce ball going on in the local park or find abbacchio brodettato on the menu at Denny's, but in this global world, all the things available in Rome are available in the USA. She can go to an Italian market, buy a good Italian cookbook and learn to make gallina alla vernaccia herself. Many Italian markets also sell bocce ball sets, so she could start her own games. — SecondGeneration Italian Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Sound off: Does safety stop step stools? Dear Readers: Here is this week’s Sound Off, on the lack of step stools in public restrooms: “I know sometimes people write to you to air their grievances. My gripe is about public restrooms — specifically the lack of step stools. My children are 5 and 7, and since they’ve been old enough to have a need to stand at a sink and wash their hands, I’ve faced this problem. I’m talking about places where children are ’welcomed’ or at the very least expected: family chain restaurants, kid-specific arcade-style restaurants, ballparks and amusement parks, just to name a few. Love reading your column every day in The (Newark, N.J.)

Hints from Heloise Columnist Star-Ledger! — Shawn in New Jersey” Shawn, this is a complaint I hear all the time. It may be a safety concern from the point of view of the business. — Heloise FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Other uses for empty tissue boxes: • Store plastic grocery bags in

one of them. • Use as a trash can in the car. • Put one in the laundry room for collecting dryer lint. • Use for scraps of fabric, thread, etc. — Heloise DRYER DUST Dear Heloise: How can you clean behind and under the washer and dryer without pulling loose all the connections? — H.V., via email Try using the crevice attachment on your vacuum. It is long, skinny and flat, so it should fit behind and possibly under the washer and dryer. If not, use a long duster to reach under and get the dust and lint. Then vacuum or sweep it up. It’s important

to clean under and around the back at least once a year to prevent a fire hazard. — Heloise SALVAGE A SCORCH MARK Dear Heloise: One of the things I’ve found that enables me to continue wearing clothes that have a scorch mark or a hole in them is to use a decorative ironon decal to cover the mark or hole. In lieu of ironing it on, you could sew it on. They come in many sizes/designs. You can cover a hole/ scorch mark or a bleach stain made when accidentally splashing a cleaning product. This can extend the life of the garment. — Judith, via email



Monday, April 8, 2013











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, April 9, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a great day, because you feel positive, upbeat and encouraged about life. Nevertheless, avoid getting into a hissy fit with someone in authority; it’s not worth it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You have a warm feeling in your tummy today. You feel good about life. Why ruin this by getting into an argument about politics, religion or racial issues? Ya think? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is a wonderful day to deal with others in group situations. You’ll enjoy classes, meetings and large conferences. Furthermore, people will listen to you today. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You make a great impression on bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs today. Work-related travel is likely. Avoid power struggles with partners and close friends. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Grab every opportunity to travel that you can today. You want a change of scenery! Explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be on the lookout for how to benefit from the wealth and resources of others today. Gifts, goodies and advantages can come your way. This is a good day to ask for a loan or mortgage. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Relations with others are very warm today. People are in a jocular, jovial mood. However, disagreements with family members could occur. (Patience is your best ally.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Be careful about introducing reforms and improvements at work, because not everyone will welcome them. Instead, use support from others to expand your work activities. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a lovely, playful day! Sports events, fun times with children, social diversions and romantic interludes are positive outlets for you. Enjoy! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is an excellent day for real-estate deals and family affairs. Enjoy entertaining at home. However, avoid power struggles with authority figures, because this will only cast a pall on things. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Writers, people in sales and those who act or teach will have a successful day, because communication skills are upbeat and positive. It’s a great day for short trips and discussions with siblings and relatives. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Business and commerce are favored today. Trust your moneymaking ideas, because you might be able to boost your income. YOU BORN TODAY At times, you are excessive, because you passionately believe in what you do. Naturally, you sometimes are outspoken and direct. However, since you are so fervent, you like to share your ideas with others (in very persuasive ways). You are excellent at encouraging others to do something. Your coming year will be the beginning of a fresh new cycle. Open any door!

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Monday, April 8, the 98th day of 2013. There are 267 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights in History: On April 8, 1913, the 17th Amendment to the Constitution, providing for popular election of United States senators (as opposed to appointment by state legislatures), was ratified. President Woodrow Wilson became the first chief executive since John Adams to address Congress in person as he asked lawmakers to enact tariff reform. On this date: • In 1963, “Lawrence of Arabia” won the Oscar for best picture at the

Academy Awards; Gregory Peck won best actor for “To Kill a Mockingbird” while Anne Bancroft received best actress honors for “The Miracle Worker.” • In 1973, artist Pablo Picasso died in Mougins, France, at age 91. • In 1974, Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves hit his 715th career home run in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, breaking Babe Ruth’s record. • In 1988, TV evangelist Jimmy Swaggart resigned from the Assemblies of God after he was defrocked for rejecting an order from the church’s national leaders to stop

preaching for a year amid reports he’d consorted with a prostitute. • In 1994, Kurt Cobain, singer and guitarist for the grunge band Nirvana, was found dead in Seattle from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound; he was 27. • Today’s Birthdays: Former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan is 75. Basketball Hall-of-Famer John Havlicek is 73. “Survivor” winner Richard Hatch is 52. Rapper Biz Markie is 49. Actress Robin Wright is 47. Actress Patricia Arquette is 45. Actor Taylor Kitsch is 32. Rock singermusician Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend) is 29.

Airline passenger complaints surged in 2012 But not every airline overbooks flights in an effort to keep seats full. JetBlue and Virgin America were the industry leaders in avoiding denied boardings, with rates of 0.01 and 0.07, respectively. United Airlines had the highest consumer complaint rate of the 14 airlines included in the report, with 4.24 complaints per 100,000 passengers. That was nearly double the airline’s complaint rate the previous year. Southwest had the lowest rate, at 0.25. Consumer complaints were significantly higher in the peak summer travel months of June, July and August when planes are especially crowded. “As airplanes get fuller, complaints get higher because people just don’t like to be sardines,” Mann said. The complaints are regarded as indicators of a larger problem because many passengers may not realize they can file complaints with Transportation Department, which regulates airlines. At the same time complaints were increasing, airlines were doing

a better job of getting passengers to their destinations on time. The industry average for on-time arrival rate was 81.8 percent of flights, compared with 80 percent in 2011. Hawaiian Airlines had the best on-time performance record, 93.4 percent in 2012. ExpressJet and American Airlines had the worst records with only 76.9 percent of their planes arriving on time last year. The industry’s ontime performance has improved in recent years, partly due to airlines’ decision to cut back on the number of flights.

“We’ve shown over the 20 years of doing this that whenever the system isn’t taxed as much fewer flights, fewer people, less bags it performs better. It’s when it reaches a critical mass that it starts to fracture,” Headley said. The industry’s shift to charging for fees for extra bags, or sometimes charging fees for any bags, has significantly reduced the rate of lost or mishandled bags. Passengers are checking fewer bags than before, and carrying more bags onto planes when permitted. The industry’s mishandled bag rate peaked in 2007 at 7.01 mishan-

dled bags per 1,000 passengers. It was 3.07 in 2012, down from 3.35 bags the previous year. The report’s ratings are based on statistics kept by the department for airlines that carry at least 1 percent of the passengers who flew domestically last year. The airlines covered in the report are Air Tran, Alaska, American, American Eagle, Delta, ExpressJet, Frontier, Hawaiian, JetBlue, SkyWest, Southwest, United, US Airways and Virgin America. The research is sponsored by Purdue University in Indiana, and by Wichita State University in Kansas.


Nevertheless, “will it keep them from flying? I doubt it would.” In recent years, some airlines have shifted to larger planes that can carry more people, but that hasn’t been enough to make up for an overall reduction in flights. The rate at which passengers with tickets were denied seats because planes were full rose to 0.97 denials per 10,000 passengers last year, compared with 0.78 in 2011. It used to be in cases of overbookings that airlines usually could find a passenger who would volunteer to give up a seat in exchange for cash, a free ticket or some other compensation with the expectation of catching another flight later that day or the next morning. Not anymore. “Since flights are so full, there are no seats on those next flights. So people say, ‘No, not for $500, not for $1,000,’” said airline industry analyst Robert W. Mann Jr. Regional carrier SkyWest had the highest involuntary denied boardings rate last year, 2.32 per 10,000 passengers.


WASHINGTON (AP) — Airline passengers are getting grumpier by the planeload and it’s little wonder, a recenty study of the airline industry indicated. Airlines keep shrinking the size of seats to stuff more people onto planes, those empty middle seats that once provided a little more room are now occupied and more people with tickets are being turned away because flights are overbooked. Private researchers who analyzed federal data on airline performance also said in a report being released Monday that consumer complaints to the Department of Transportation surged by one-fifth last year even though other measures such as on-time arrivals and mishandled baggage show airlines are doing a better job. “The way airlines have taken 130-seat airplanes and expanded them to 150 seats to squeeze out more revenue I think is finally catching up with them,” said Dean Headley, a business professor at Wichita State University who has co-written the annual report for 23 years. “People are saying, ‘Look, I don’t fit here. Do something about this.’ At some point airlines can’t keep shrinking seats to put more people into the same tube,” he said. The industry is even looking at ways to make today’s smaller-than-abroom closet toilets more compact in the hope of squeezing a few more seats onto planes. “I can’t imagine the uproar that making toilets smaller might generate,” Headley said, especially given that passengers increasingly weigh more than they use to.

One more test Wolverines, Cardinals clash tonight ATLANTA (AP) — Virginia Commonwealth’s press. Syracuse’s zone. Michigan has handled every test so far. Now it’s time for the final exam a Louisville team that is the NCAA tournament’s top overall seed. Michigan is trying for its first national title since 1989, and Monday night will be its first appearance in the championship game since 1993, when the Fab Five lost to North Carolina. The last two decades have been diffiAP PHOTO cult for the Wolverines, but after Syracuse’s Brandon Triche (20) charges into Michigan’s Jordan sanctions and mediocrity, they’re Morgan (52) during the second half of the NCAA Final Four back in the spotlight at college tournament college basketball semifinal game Saturday in basketball’s signature event. Atlanta. Triche was called for charging. Coach John Beilein’s team is

plenty talented, but point guard Trey Burke and the Wolverines have reached this moment because of their smarts and their ability to adjust quickly to new challenges. “It means a lot to Michigan,” Burke said. “This program hasn’t been this far in two decades, so just to be back in this situation definitely means the world to alumni and it means the world to us. That’s been our No. 1 goal since Day One.” It was clear from the start that this could be a special team. Led by Burke, the Wolverines won their first 16 games and were eventually ranked No. 1 in

Indians hit Price, rout Rays 13-0


Angels, two teams expected to contend this season for post-season berths. “That’s really big,” Baker said. “That’s what you plan on doing. You want to win two out of three and then maybe go on a long winning streak. You want to get as far away from .500 as possible.” Cueto needed 108 pitches to get through six innings, allowing seven hits and three runs. He walked three and struck out six. Aroldis Chapman allowed one hit and had two strikeouts in the ninth for his second save.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Shut out in their previous two games, the Cleveland Indians faced a real tough task Sunday: Solve AL Cy Young winner David Price, a particular nemesis in recent years. They did, in a big way. Mark Reynolds and Lonnie Chisenhall hit three-run homers off Price, Justin Masterson pitched seven strong inning and the Indians hammered the Tampa Bay Rays 13-0 on Sunday. “When you get this game figured out, let me know,” Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. “We hadn’t scored in two nights. We’re facing the guy that won the Cy Young. He’s good. We made him work. We gave ourselves chances early, which is good. And we cashed in on those, which is even better.” Reynolds homered twice. Carlos Santana had a careerhigh five hits, including a home run off Fernando Rodney and a pair of doubles. Michael Bourn also homered for the Indians. Price (0-1) gave up eight runs, 10 hits and three walks in five innings. He had been 5-0 with a 1.64 ERA in six career starts against Cleveland. “I’ve got to get out of my own way,” Price said. “I’m just fighting myself right now with my delivery. That’s something I’ll work on, and get it worked out. This wasn’t very good. I thought about it since I came out, I don’t really have a positive from today, and that’s kind of tough to deal with.” It was a tough day for top pitchers. The reigning NL winner, R.A. Dickey, was roughed up by Boston by the same 13-0 score in a romp over Toronto. “David, obviously was not

Cincinnati Reds Jay Bruce hits a two-run double off Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg in the first inning during their baseball game Sunday in Cincinnati. Natioanls catcher Kurt Suzuki is at right.

Run support helps Reds’ bats backup ace Cueto in 6-3 win (AP) — CINCINNATI Johnny Cueto ordered three runs. His Cincinnati teammates dutifully delivered. The Reds pitcher came off the mound after the sixth inning of his start Sunday against the Washington Nationals with the score tied, 3all. “I said, ‘I want three runs here. Do it for me,’” Cueto said. Todd Frazier confirmed Cueto’s order. “I was screaming with him,” the Cincinnati third baseman said. “He was saying it in Spanish, but we understood.” Boy, did they. The Reds

Jimmie Johnson dominated Martinsville Speedway again. Johnson led a career-best 346 laps Sunday and pulled away on a restart with eight laps to go for his eighth career victory at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday.. “It was just a long, fought day,” Johnson said after climbing from his car in Victory Lane. “Martinsville, it stays the same over the years and you just have to dig in and get your own rhythm. Fortunately, the fastest car won the race.” See Page 14.

three runs off scored Washington ace Stephen Strasburg on their way to a 6-3 win in what started out as a highly anticipated matchup of young aces. Jay Bruce drove in three runs as Cincinnati wrapped up an impressive opening week homestand. Bruce, Shin-Soo Choo, Xavier Paul and Brandon Phillips each had two hits to back Cueto (1-0) and help the Reds win the rubber match of their three-game series with Washington. They pleased manager Dusty Baker by finishing 4-2 at home against the Nationals and Los Angeles

FBI eyes possible extortion at Rutgers By the Associated Press

Johnson dominates at Martinsville

The FBI is investigating whether a former Rutgers basketball employee tried to extort the university before he made videos that showed ex-coach Mike Rice shoving and kicking players and berating them with gay slurs. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Sunday that investigators are interested in Eric Murdock, who left his job as the men’s basketball program’s player development director last year and later provided the video to university officials and ESPN.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the inquiry has not been announced. The investigation was first reported by The New York Times. A spokeswoman for the FBI’s Newark office said the agency would not say whether there is an investigation. Murdock’s lawyer did not return a call to the AP on Sunday. A Rutgers spokesman referred questions to the FBI. A December letter from Murdock’s lawyer to a lawyer representing Rutgers requested $950,000 to settle employment issues and said that if the university did not agree by Jan. 4,

Murdock was prepared to file a lawsuit. The letter was obtained last week by the AP and other media outlets. No settlement has been made. The video became public last week, and Murdock on Friday filed a lawsuit against the university, contending he was fired because he was a whistleblower trying to bring to light Rice’s behavior. The video’s release last week set off a chain reaction that led to Rice’s firing and the resignations of athletic director Tim Pernetti, the university’s top in-house lawyer and an assistant basket-

ball coach. Some critics want the university’s president, Robert Barchi, to resign. At a news conference last week, Barchi said the firing and resignations likely never would have happened unless Murdock provided the video to ESPN. Barchi said he did not see the video himself until after it had been made public. Murdock, a New Jersey native who played for seven NBA teams from 1991 to 2000, was on the initial staff Rice assembled when he became the Rutgers coach in 2010. He left the team last year, though there are conflicting stories about the circumstances.

Reds ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 “There’s pride in facing him,” Cueto said. “He’s a good pitcher like I am. It was a competitive situation.” Strasburg (1-1) allowed nine hits and six runs with four walks and five strikeouts in 5 1-3 innings. He threw 114 pitches, 73 for strikes. The Reds didn’t exactly overpower him, connecting for just one extra-base hit and three infield singles. They scored one run on an infield out and the go-ahead run on a fielder’s-choice grounder. “I learned a lot out there,” Strasburg said

about facing an opponent’s ace. “You want to be in that situation and go deep into the ballgame.” Cincinnati left-hander Sean Marshall pitched the seventh in his first appearance of the season after getting over what he described as shoulder fatigue. Jonathan Broxton worked the eighth. The Reds knocked Strasburg out with that three-run sixth. Rookie Derrick Robinson, called up on Wednesday to replace the injured Ryan Ludwick, led off with his first major league hit, a sharp one-hopper just out

of the reach of diving third baseman Ryan Zimmerman. Robinson went to third on Choo’s single to center and slid across the plate with the go-ahead run just ahead of second baseman Danny Espinosa’s throw on Paul’s fielder’s choice. “It’s not 100 percent that I’m going to score there,” Robinson said. “I just try to use my Godgiven talent as much as possible.” Robinson’s speed is what made him the frontrunner to be called up when Ludwick went down, Baker said.

“Speed kills,” Baker said. “Speed doesn’t go into slumps. I love speed. I love power, too, but I love speed.” Both runners moved up on Joey Votto’s chopper to Strasburg and Phillips singled to left through the drawn-in infield to drive in Paul and end Strasburg’s day. Ryan Mattheus relieved Strasburg, and Bruce greeted him with a run-scoring infield single to shortstop Ian Desmond. The duel between the two right-handers nearly fizzled early. Strasburg allowed as many hits in the first

inning Sunday as he did while throwing seven shutout innings against Miami during a 2-0 win in Washington’s opener on April 1. Four straight runners reached base, including Paul and Phillips with infield singles and Bruce with a bases-loaded, tworun double. Phillips scored the Reds’ third run of the inning on Todd Frazier’s groundout. The Nationals immediately tied the score in the second on Desmond’s double to left-center, Danny Espinosa’s walk and Kurt Suzuki’s 357-foot home run into the left field seats.

NOTES: The Reds begin their first road trip of the season Monday with three games in St. Louis, where they’ve won just three and split two of their last 27 series, starting in 2003. … Washington returns home after a brief three-game road trip to open a six-game homestand, starting Monday with the first of three interleague games against the White Sox. … Zimmerman’s third-inning error was the 12th committed by a Reds opponents in the first six games of the season. The Reds have been charged with just two.

Martinsville machine


Jimmy Johnson puts on a clinic in victory MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) — No matter the changes to the car, the tires, or the weather, Martinsville Speedway is Jimmie Johnson’s kind of place. Johnson led a careerbest 346 laps Sunday and pulled away on a restart with eight laps to go for his eighth career victory on the shortest track in the Sprint Cup Series, taking over third place on the career victories list on NASCAR’s oldest track. The only drivers ahead of him? Hall of famers Richard Petty with 15 wins, and Darrell Waltrip with 11. “Probably the most calm, relaxed thought-out weekend that we’ve ever had as the 48 (team),” Johnson said. From the time he rolled his car onto the track for the first practice Friday until the final restart, Johnson had a dominant car, and knew it. And with his track record here, even when things seemed to take a bad turn, he and his team trusted history. “We stuck to our game plan and knew what we wanted to have in the race and stayed patient, and it was tough to do at times, but it certainly worked out well,” the five-time series champion said. “And in the race, we had to adjust on the fly.” No team does it better at Martinsville, and while Johnson said the final caution came at an inopportune time because he’d built a big lead over Clint Bowyer, he also realized it may have saved him from having to fight off teammate Jeff Gordon. “Jeff on the long run probably had the car to beat,” he said. “Jeff has a really good line here on the long run, and he started catching me before the last caution and I was thinking, ‘Man, if this stays green,


Jimmie Johnson (48) and Marcos Ambrose (9) lead the field past the green flag to start the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series STP Gas Booster 500 Sunday at Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Virginia. this could be a Jeff Gordon day.” Instead, the caution flew on lap 487. Johnson picked the inside line for the final restart with Bowyer on the outside, Gordon behind him and Kyle Busch to his outside, and Johnson got a clean break for the lead into Turn 1, his top priority to build some separation for the finish. “I felt like if I could get two or three corners and maintain the lead on Clint, I could stretch it back out again,” he said. Bowyer slid into second and Busch, who tried to make a move on the outside line, instead got hung up out there as Gordon and his Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Kasey Kahne, who restarted fifth, went underneath to take fourth.

Nothing changed the rest of the way and the top five finished in those positions. Gordon, too, was thinking he had a chance until Kurt Busch crashed, bringing out the 12th and final caution. “I obviously didn’t want to see a short run there at the end,” he said. The victory made team owner Rick Hendrick’s organization the winningest team in Martinsville history with 20, breaking a tie it had with the Petty organization. Gordon, who was tied with Johnson and Rusty Wallace with seven victories on the 0.526-mile oval, said he knew it would be a tough day when Johnson won the pole for the second race in a row here because

of the pit road advantage. “You give him that No. 1 pit stall here at Martinsville, it’s almost impossible,” Gordon said. While Johnson dominated, there were times it looked as if the race might go in another direction. Matt Kenseth, who has struggled at Martinsville throughout his career, actually passed Johnson for the lead and led for 96 laps. Mark Martin, driving for the injured Denny Hamlin and equally disdainful of the venue, moved into fourth place after taking a chance and getting just two tires on a pit stop, but then faded quickly. Martin, mindful of Hamlin’s four career victories at Martinsville, finished a disappointing 10th.

Indians ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 sharp,” Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. “I am not concerned. It’s just one of those days. I don’t want him to stew on a game like this at all. Just throw it in the garbage can. There’s another Cy Young Award winner that had a hard time today. It’s really incredible what’s going on.” Reynolds made it 4-0 with his big homer in the third inning and added a solo drive in the seventh off Kyle Farnsworth. Chisenhall’s shot came in the fifth. “We went 20-something innings without scoring a run,” Reynolds said. “We had to score sometime. It just happened to be against him.” Masterson (2-0) allowed two hits against a team that’s often tagged him. He was 1-7 with a 7.74 ERA in his previous 13 games against Tampa Bay, with

the other win coming in 2008 when he was with Boston. Masterson struck out eight, walked three and retired his final 13 batters. Joe Smith and Vinnie Pestano completed a fourhitter. “The boys came out and they just bamboozled, just starting hitting some balls,” Masterson said. “It was pretty cool to see. That’s pretty much the testament. They played good defense, made some good plays out there, and they were just crushing balls. And they were putting runs on the board, and it makes the job on the pitcher a lot easier.” The Rays had posted shutouts in the first two games of the series, winning 4-0 on Friday and 6-0 Saturday over Cleveland. Drew Stubbs hit an RBI single in the second, ending Cleveland’s stretch of 20 consecutive scoreless

innings. Price left trailing 8-0. The left-hander got a nodecision on opening day, giving up two runs and seven hits over six innings in Tampa Bay’s 7-4 loss to Baltimore. It’s just the second time also on June 23, 2009 against Philadelphia that he has given up eight or more runs in a game. Asdrubal Cabrera and Ryan Raburn walked to start the Cleveland third and Reynolds homered with one out. Reynolds is 4 for 24 with three homers against Price. Santana had an RBI double in the fifth before Chisenhall’s first homer this season. Reynolds’ second homer of the game came in a tworun seventh as the Indians took a 10-0 lead. He has 19 career mulithomer games. Bourn hit a solo home run in the eighth. NOTES: Indians RHP

Cody Allen said there was no intent when he hit Rays 3B Evan Longoria in the buttocks with a pitch Saturday. Allen said Sunday he was trying to keep Longoria from getting his bat extended and the pitch got away from him. Maddon said after Saturday’s game that he felt it was intentional and stemmed from a homeplate collision earlier in the game between Rays OF Desmond Jennings and Indians C Lou Marson. … Marson, who left Saturday’s game with a cervical neck strain, said he felt better Sunday and did some pregame on-field work. … Cleveland optioned RHP Trevor Bauer to Triple-A Columbus. RHP Carlos Carrasco, who had been serving a five-game suspension dating from July 2011, is back on the active roster.

■ CONTINUED FROM 13 the nation at the start of February. But as Beilein stressed over and over, it was still a young team. Burke, the consensus national player of the year, is a sophomore. Guard Tim Hardaway Jr. is a junior, but Michigan relies a lot on freshmen Glenn Robinson III, Mitch McGary and Nik Stauskas. When the NCAA tournament began, the Wolverines still had a lot to prove but this team’s mental strength should not be underestimated. On the first weekend of the tournament, Michigan faced VCU in the round of 32. After only a day to prepare for the Rams’ chaotic full-court press, the Wolverines breezed to a 25-point win. Two victories later, they were in the Final Four and again, they were up against an intimidating defense. Syracuse’s 2-3 zone confounded opponents in the earlier rounds, but Michigan made six first-half 3-pointers and held on to beat the Orange 61-56. The Wolverines used their final timeout with 1:51 remaining in that game, bringing back memories of Michigan’s last appearance in the Final Four, when Chris Webber called a timeout the Wolverines didn’t have, resulting in a technical foul and a loss to North Carolina. Michigan wasn’t about to make that mistake again, and the Wolverines held their nerve against Syracuse’s pressure. “We just stuck together,” Burke said. “A lot of people would crack under pressure when you’re in that type of situation.” Michigan has looked poised, prepared and confident for the last month or so. Burke’s presence at

point guard is crucial, but the rest of Beilein’s team makes smart decisions as well. “He really recruits to his system maybe better than any coach. As Jim (Boeheim) recruits to his zone defensively, he recruits to his system,” Louisville coach Rick Pitino said. “He gets everybody that can pass, catch and shoot. Then if you get up on ‘em, they can ball fake and drive.” Beilein certainly does take a player’s basketball IQ into account while recruiting, but that’s an inexact science. “In AAU it’s tough to see that sometimes. That’s why we like to see practices, we like to know their coach a little bit,” Beilein said. “Have they been coached before? Thankfully most of our guys have really good high school coaches, and that helps us determine what they can handle from us.” The Wolverines have been able to handle every challenge for the last few weeks, and their presence in the title game is a proud moment for a program that was reeling after a federal investigation revealed that a booster gave Webber and three non-Fab Five players more than $600,000 while they were student-athletes. Sanctions cast a cloud over the team for years, but Michigan’s run this season has brought back fonder memories of the past. On Monday night, the current Wolverines will try to add a national title to their own growing legacy. “I am still in shock of what we accomplished,” Robinson said. “After watching the national championship for so many years and finally having this opportunity to play in it especially my freshman year I am really excited for this game. I can’t wait.”

Gee, Thompson lead Cavs to win CLEVELAND (AP) — Alonzo Gee scored 19 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Orlando Magic 91-85 on Sunday night. Tristan Thompson had 15 points and 16 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who have won two in a row for the first time since Feb. 2627. Cleveland, which broke a season-high, 10-game losing streak Friday in Boston, trailed by seven points late in the third quarter, but took the lead for good early in the fourth and made clutch plays down the stretch. Tobias Harris scored 26 points, while Nikola Vucevic added 21 points and 21 rebounds for Orlando, which has lost five in a row and 13 of 14. The Magic have dropped 11 straight away from home the second-longest road losing streak in franchise history.

Thompson, who recorded career highs with 29 points and 17 rebounds Friday, hit two free throws and a hook shot in the late in the final three minutes to help Cleveland maintain its lead. Cavaliers guard C.J. Miles left the game in the second quarter after being hit in the forehead with an elbow from Vucevic while the two were going for a rebound. Miles was down on one knee for a couple of minutes and walked to the locker room with a towel to his face. He received six stitches and didn’t return. Orlando was winless on a five-game, eight-day road trip. The Magic haven’t won away from home since March 4. Kyrie Irving, the Cavaliers’ All-Star point guard, scored nine points, on 3-of-15 shooting. Irving, who had 10 assists, is 12 for 51 from the field in three games since returning from a shoulder injury.

Laird ties course record with 63 in Texas Open win SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Martin Laird tied the course record with a 9under par 63 to hold off Rory McIlroy to earn his first win in more than two years at the Texas Open. Laird began Sunday four shots behind leader Billy Horschel, but posted a bogey-free round to finish 14 under overall and earn the third win of his career, his first since the Palmer Arnold Invitational in 2011. The Scottish golfer entered the week having missed four of eight cuts this year. McIlroy, the world’s No. 2, began the day at 6 under before posting a 66 to finish two shots back and finish second his best finish of the year. Horschel shot a 1-

under 71 to finish in a tie for third with Jim Furyk and Charley Hoffman. • LPGA RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — Inbee Park doubled her lead to six strokes on the opening hole Sunday and ran away with the Kraft Nabisco Championship for her second major title. The 24-year-old South Korean player made a 20foot birdie putt on the par-4 first, while playing partner Lizette Salas had a double bogey for a three-stroke swing. The 2008 U.S. Women’s Open winner at Interlachen, Park closed with a 3-under 69 at Mission Hills to finish at 15 under, four strokes ahead of fellow South Korean player So Yeon Ryu.

Louisville marches on NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Make that three straight upsets for Louisville, whose latest thriller landed the Cardinals back in the women’s national championship game for the first time since 2009. Antonita Slaughter scored 18 points on six 3pointers and Louisville clawed back from a 10-point halftime deficit to defeat California 64-57 in the national semifinals Sunday night. Bria Smith scored 17 on 6 of 7 shooting for the Cardinals (29-8), who were a No. 5 seed and became the first team seeded worse than fourth to win a Final Four game. “I can’t even put into words how proud I am,” Louisville coach Jeff Walz said. “I told the kids they’re stuck with me in practice for one more day.” The result ensures an allBig East Conference final in the league’s last season in its current form, with Louisville meeting the winner of the other semifinal between Notre Dame and Connecticut on Tuesday night one night after the Louisville men’s team plays Michigan for the championship. “Right now anything can happen,” Walz said. “Why not us?” Layshia Clarendon scored 17 for Cal (32-4), which had won the Spokane Region as a second seed. Gennifer Brandon added 12 for the Golden Bears and Brittany Boyd added 10 points.


Louisville guard Bria Smith (21) drives the ball against California guard Brittany Boyd (15) in the first half of a national semifinal at the Women's Final Four of the NCAA college basketball tournament Sunday in New Orleans. “Credit Louisville, which obviously has been really hot,” Cal coach Lindsay Gottlieb said. “They outfought us in the second half.” Louisville had to beat defending national champion Baylor and Southeastern Conference power Tennessee just to get to New Orleans, and will need to summon one more upset to win it all. Not that they’re worried about it. “No one expects us to be here,” Slaughter said. “No

one expects us to be in the championship game. Just come together as a team and win as a team.” Shoni Schimmel, who had been one of the stars of the tournament, struggled early for Louisville, but finished with 10 points, including a clutch transition pullup that gave Louisville a 5754 lead with 2:06 left. Clarendon responded with a left win 3 of her own to tie it, but Sara Hammond, playing with four fouls for

the last 7:20, gave the Cardinals the lead for good with a strong move inside as she was fouled. Suddenly, Cal was forcing desperate 3s and not hitting them. “In the first half we got out a lot on the run. We didn’t get a chance to run at all (in the second half) because we weren’t getting stops,” Clarendon said. “We made a lot of mistakes. It’s not like we played somebody who was too good and just flat out beat us.”

Backstrom carries Wild past Jackets COLUMBUS (AP) — Niklas Backstrom made 24 saves, and newcomer Jason Pominville had a goal and an assist to help the Minnesota Wild snap a three-game losing streak with a 3-0 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday night. Pominville, acquired this week from Buffalo, earned his first points with Minnesota. The Wild, coming off

their first shutout loss of the season 3-0 at Los Angeles on Thursday got better as the game progressed on both ends of the ice. Ryan Suter’s wrist shot in traffic started the scoring, and Charlie Coyle benefited from a perfect pass from Mikael Granlund as the Wild netted two power-play goals in the second period.

Backstrom and his staunch defense did the rest until Pominville scored late off a tape-totape pass from Zach Parise. Backstrom earned his second shutout of the season and 28th of his NHL career. Marian Gaborik, acquired by the Blue Jackets in a multiplayer deal with the New York Rangers at Wednesday’s trade deadline, was greeted by several signs in the crowd as he made his debut at home. The Wild weren’t nearly so welcoming. It was a turnaround

win for Minnesota, which had lost three in a row and four of five since a seven-game winning streak. The Wild scored only three goals in the three-game skid. Minnesota had also lost three straight on the road. This defeat was extremely costly to Columbus, which is four points behind eighthplace Detroit in the West. Now the Blue Jackets have little wiggle room with just nine games remaining in the regular season including six on the road.
