The Marshall-DonnellyCombs Funeral Home in Nashville said Lindsay died early Sunday morning after a brief illness. Lindsey was the beaniewearing Goober on “The Andy Griffith Show” from 1964 to 1968 and its successor, “Mayberry RFD,” from 1968 to 1971.

Airstrike kills al-Qaida leader An airstrike Sunday killed a top al-Qaida leader on the FBI’s most wanted list for his role in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole warship, Yemeni officials said. The airstrike resembled earlier U.S. drone attacks, but the U.S. did not immediately confirm it. Fahd al-Quso was hit by a missile as he stepped out of his vehicle, along with another al-Qaida operative in the southern Shabwa province, Yemeni military officials said. They were speaking on condition of anonymity in accordance with military regulations. See Page 7.

As those who participated in the American Cancer Society’s signature activity, Relay for Life, held at the Miami County fairgrounds Saturday and Sunday know, cancer never sleeps. Neither did the individuals who participated in the 24-hour Relay to help fight and bring awareness to cancer in communities across the country since its inception in 1985 by Dr. Gordy Klatt. According to the American Cancer Society some 3.5 million people are brought together for the event to celebrate not only those who fight and

have fought cancer, but to remember those lost and raise funds to find a cure for an estimated 1,444,920 people who will hear the words “you have cancer,” with some 559,660 to lose the battle. This overnight, fund-raising event was attended by approximately 30 teams of all ages and from numerous organizations across the county, helping to raise over $172,000, according to Joyce Kittel, chair.

Feinstein said she wishes she had the chance to meet with Pakistan’s leaders to discuss the need for more help from the country to break up the Haqqani network. Congress has passed various restrictions on U.S. aid in Pakistan after Osama bin Laden was found

hiding within its borders. A recent defense policy bill would withhold 60 percent of military aid if the defense secretary can’t show the money will be effective in fighting the Taliban and ensuring Pakistan helps with efforts to counter roadside bombs. Rogers said that he and Feinstein agree the first step should be for the U.S. to designate the Haqqani group a terrorist net-

Relay • CONTINUED FROM A1 While the total is a little behind from the previous year Kittel, who has taken part in the Relay for the last five years, this being her first year as chair, explained they will continue to raise funds until the end of August to reach their goal of $232,000. The weekend relay on Saturday began instead of what had traditionally been a Friday and kicked off with the survivor lap ceremony. Along with a survivor brunch, auction, and luminary ceremony. Games included corn hole, an egg toss, and 3-

legged race, along with movies and yoga. The Troy’s high school pep band also was on hand, as was a cancer prevention study, bloodmobile, and a live concert was given by This Side Up in keeping with this year’s Relay theme, “Rockin’ n Rollin’ for a Cure”. “I want to thank all the participants spending the time and energy to help find the cure,” s a i d Kittel Sunday afternoon after the Relay had wrapped earlier that morning with the first lap for 2013. “Volunteering is always wonderful.”

Republicans have turned the war into a campaign issue, despite waning public support for the conflict, by criticizing Obama for setting an end date for U.S. combat

operations. “We ought to have a hard discussion about saying listen, war is when one side wins and one side loses,” said Rogers. “And if we don’t get to that calculation of strategic defeat of the Taliban, you’re not going to get to a place where you can rest assured that you (U.S. troops) can come home and a safe haven does not reestablish itself.”

France gets new leader, Europe new direction PARIS (AP) — France handed the presidency Sunday to leftist Francois Hollande, a champion of government stimulus programs who says the state should protect the downtrodden — a victory that could deal a death blow to the drive for austerity that has been the hallmark of Europe in recent years. Mild and affable, the president-elect inherits a country deep in debt and divided over how to integrate immigrants while preserving its national identity. Markets will closely watch his initial moves as president. He narrowly defeated the hard-driving, attention-getting Nicolas Sarkozy, an Americafriendly leader who led the country through its worst economic troubles since World War II but whose policies and personality proved too bitter for many voters to swallow. “Austerity can no longer be inevitable!” Hollande declared in his victory speech after a surprising campaign that saw him transform from an unremarkable figure to an increasingly statesmanlike one.

Word of the Week


National Nurses Week is a celebration to honor nurses, starting May 6 and ending May 12. The last day of Nurses Week was chosen to honor one single nurse in history. May 12 is the birthdate of one of the most honored nurses, Florence Nightingale. The foundation of nursing today was built many years ago by Florence Nightingale. She was often referred to as "The lady with the lamp" because of the way she would carry a lantern at night to check on her patients (wounded soldiers). Florence Nightingale transformed the role of the nurse into a skilled and well respected member of the medical profession. A true visionary, Florence was noted to be the first researcher in nursing, using her notes to collect information (data) allowing her to analyze (compare) what helped her patients heal and feel better. By doing this, one of Florence's contributions to nursing research was able to show that fresh air, natural light, cleanliness, clean pure water and working sewage drainage would help the patients heal. This

may be very basic information to us in today's world, although back in the 1800s no one had thought about theses things before. Her dedication to nursing was responsible for decreasing the death toll among soldiers. Her research and data collection techniques are still used today. The field of health care has undergone monumental changes since Florence first laid the foundation for the nursing profession. Nurses are not just found at the bedside in a hospital setting. They can be found in many areas of health care for example: general doctor's offices, specialty doctor's offices, home care (where the nurse comes to your house), transport nurse (taking patients from one hospital to another by ambulance or helicopter) to mention a few. Nursing is not a profession for only women as it was in Florence's era. More men are becoming nurses today. They are welcomed with open arms into the profession. The advancement in technology and medicines has transformed health care and the nursing role virtually in every

Despite the changes in nursing there are a few things that have not changed over the years and should never change, Nurses are still the primary patient advocate.

She was dubbed "The Lady with the Lamp" after her habit of making rounds at night. An Anglican, Nightingale believed that God had called her to be a nurse.

ing he wanted to take more pictures of it. He had created this new look the old-fashioned way – with a carving knife. "Read what the Great Cosmic Turnip has to say before it's too late, and Jefferson is wiped off the face of the earth," Jake warned. This was met with laughter and smart-alecky comments from the crowd. Gradually, they started to turn away, with several people making twirling, crazy-as-aloon motions around their ears. Not a single person had bought a newspaper. Frustrated, Jake dropped the turnip to the ground and gave it a kick. It rolled toward me. "These Southerners aren't as dumb as I thought," he said. Looking at the nearby ball of string and the monsterfaced turnip wobbling my way, I had a brainstorm. I'm good with string. I rigged up a haunted house once at Halloween, making it seem like doors and windows were opening and shutting by themselves. I used string to cause towels and stuff to fall from the ceiling onto folks. It spooked out a lot of my friends – and even some of their parents. I picked up Jake's ball of string and grabbed the turnip. Quickly, while the crowd was starting to leave, I tied the string around it and tossed it over a tree limb. Now, hiding behind Felix's statue, I tugged on the string. The turnip rose and hovered about ten feet in the air.

The Ghost in the Courthouse Statue Written by Bill Bailey Illustrated by Michelle Duckworth Chapter 6 Miracle turnip discovered in Jefferson

I had been working on a deep, grown-man's voice. Now was my chance to use it. "Well, I'll be hornswoggled!" I said. "That there turnip's flying!" A woman took a look and let out a shriek. Others turned and stared in amazement. But I hadn't tied the string tight enough, and it slipped off. The huge vegetable plopped to the ground. With all eyes on the turnip, I couldn't do anything to rescue the situation. Out of desperation, I turned to the statue. If there was a ghost in there, now would sure be a good time for him to help us out. "Felix, I know Jake's a little odd," I began. "A leetle?!" a voice said. Okay, it could have been a voice in my head. But there was nothing to lose in answering it. "It's all part of Jake's plan to catch those bad guys that Mr. Elder was after," I said. "You want that, too, don't you?" "But Meester Passmore ees... how you say... ze fruitcake," the voice said. Either my imagination was out of control again, or this was actually happening. "Please help," I pleaded. "We need you." The turnip lay there for several seconds. I heard a deep sigh, the kind someone makes when he's giving in. Then, slowly, the turnip rose into the air about a foot off the ground – this time, with no string attached. The stunned crowd watched as it climbed higher and higher. I squeezed my eyes closed, then popped them wide open to make sure I wasn't imagining it. The turnip was still rising. This was the real deal – a flying monster-faced turnip!

not the turnip man, are you? The one Uncle George always talked about? The one and only Billy Wayne, the man who grows the biggest gosh-darned turnips on this planet?" Billy Wayne's eyes lit up. "Well I wouldn't say – " " – Well, I would," said Jake. "By the way, did you say this turnip was grown organically?" Billy Wayne held the turnip with great pride. "Mother Nature ain't had no help with this-un." Jake flashed a toothy grin. "In that case we'll hafta help the old gal out." He knelt down low, aiming the camera up at the turnip to make it look bigger.

STORY SO FAR: When Jake meets with his newspaper staff, his sensationalistic ideas offend them. After the staff meeting, Jake says he's only pretending to be a crazy editor who will fill the newspaper with wild news stories. He says the nutty news is a trick to make the local crooks think the newspaper isn't watching them - so that he can catch them off guard and expose them. Donnie doesn't totally trust Jake but feels drawn to him, because he makes life exciting. As Mom, Humpty, and I listened to Jake's pep talk about his new plans, the front door bell rang. In shuffled Billy Wayne Hatcher in his bib overalls, toting a giant turnip. He plopped it on the front counter with a thud that shook the room. Mrs. Buntin stepped up to the front counter. "Hi, Billy Wayne. What've you got there?" Bursting with pride, Billy Wayne boomed, "I reckon I got the biggest gol-danged turnip in Jefferson, once't again." Even though we could see and hear Billy Wayne from the editor's office, Jake ignored the interruption. "You're my team," he said. "We've gotta be on the same page." Staring at Jake through a big plate glass window, Billy Wayne blurted, "George Elder, he run ever' piece 'a produce I ever brung in here - my 20-pound tomater, giant watermillon – " " – Thank you sir, but we don't run that kind of news anymore," Jake said, poking his head out his office door. "Too boring." Billy Wayne gave Jake a long look, sizing him up. "I don't know where you come from, but this turnip's gonna be mighty big news down here," he said. "I don't wanna brag, but it's the biggest one ever growed 'round these parts." "Not interested," Jake barked, frowning. "Good day, sir." Turning back to us, he said, "Now where was I?" But Billy Wayne wasn't through. "Mister, you and your lousy newspaper ain't worth the spit on George's shoes," he snapped. "I got a good mind to cancel my prescription." "Then you should go to Ed's Pharmacy – right down the street," Jake shot back. "We only handle subscriptions here." "Well, how's about this, then?" said Billy Wayne. "Stop sending me the dad-blamed paper! With someone like you in charge, it ain't fittin' to read. That clear enough for you?" Snatching his prized possession off the counter, Billy Wayne stomped toward the front door. Even though he was angry, he carried the turnip carefully like it was a rare jewel. "This baby's all-natchrul," he muttered to himself. "Ain't used Miracle Gro or nuthin'. And this is the kind of treatment I get." Jake had taken a couple of steps toward us when suddenly an idea stopped him in his tracks. He whipped his head around. "Miracle? Hmmm..." he said, twiddling his fingers rapidly in the air. I've never seen such a quick change come over a guy. In a second, his sour, irritated look had shifted into a wide, excited grin. He sniffed like he was smelling for the turnip, tapped his "nose for news," and gave Mom and me a wink. "Miracle.... Yes, of course...." In one fluid motion, Jake glided out of his office, scooped a camera off a desk, and rushed over to Billy Wayne. Just as the upset man reached for the door, an arm fell across his shoulder. In a voice all warm and fuzzy, Jake said, "Now hold on there, friend. You're

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Times Leader, Martins Ferry, Ohio, on a new Kent State shooting investigation: The United States Justice Department has opted not to reopen the 1970 Kent State shooting investigation. Four-plus decades have come and gone, so we agree with that decision. The Justice Department based its decision on “insurmountable legal and evidentiary barriers” in regard to the fatal shooting by the Ohio National Guardsmen during a Vietnam War protest at the university. That tragedy played out 42 years ago May 4, taking four Kent State students and wounding nine more. … The recent request to reopen the probe came from one of those wounded victims. He based his plea on an enhanced audio recording that orders may have been given for the Guardsmen to prepare to fire on students during the protest. … Family members and loved ones of the Kent State victims have had 42 years to come to grips with a most sad and unfortunate occurrence.

Clinton helped craft a successful presidency from 1993 until 2001 by working with congressional Republicans who took control of Congress after the landmark 1994 mid-term election. The president’s tax policies, coupled with GOP-led spending restraints, helped bring about a balanced budget for several years running. Does that remind anyone of LBJ? It should. The Texan also worked well with congressional Republicans. Some of his better friends in the Senate were the likes of the late Republican Sen. Everett Dirksen of Illinois, with whom he had a tremendous working relationship, owing in part to LBJ’s own time as Senate majority leader. Johnson would fight publicly with Republicans, then work privately with them on ways to reach compromise. … It’s a complicated process at times, which is the very nature of legislating.

My lawn mower doesn’t quite make the cut There are a few possessions that every man remembers. His first baseball glove. His first bicycle. His first car. His first house. His lawn mower. I realize that those of you who are of the female persuasion might not think the lawn mower belongs on this list. I guess if you live in New York City it doesn’t. But if you live in Ohio, your lawn mower is an important part of your life. Here’s an example: I was going down the street the other day in a part of town where the yards are slightly larger than postage stamps. There, in the front yard of one of the houses, was a guy and his lawn mower. Not just any lawn mower — it was a big John Deere mower. I’m not sure that he even had enough space to turn that baby around, he probably just had to go back and forth across the lawn. But it sure looked good. That mower was bright and shiny and the engine was roaring and it was throwing grass all over the block. I have had pretty good luck with my memorable posses-

David Lindeman Troy Daily News Columnist sions. My first baseball glove served me well for many years. If only my bat would have worked as well. My first bicycle had a banana seat and big handle bars. They don’t make them like that anymore (thank goodness). My first car was a VW bug. It was indestructible and a lot of fun. My first house was a nice little place on Summit Ave. with great neighbors. It was only a little bit bigger than the John Deere I saw the guy driving the other day, but it was good enough until we outgrew it. Then there are my lawn mowers. I haven’t had such great luck with lawn mowers. When I was

young, my parents had a Sears Craftsman push mower. Remember how they said Craftsmen always started on the first pull. This one did. It was tougher than a Sherman tank. We never serviced it, never changed the oil, never did anything but put gas in it and fire it up. It’s been all downhill since then. My current mower is a big walk-behind made by a manufacturer that will remain namless but that is named for a turtle. It does a good job mowing gas, but in the years I’ve had it strange things have happened. The latest problem occurred when I was in the back yard and the back wheel fell off. One minute I’m mowing along, the next minute I’m digging a trench. This is the last in a long line of various things falling off the mower, so now I have a dilemma. Do I pay to get it fixed (again) or just give up and get a new mower? In the meantime, I’m mowing my yard with a standard small push mower. Either I’m getting older or the

yard is getting bigger, because it doesn’t go as quickly as it used to go. On one hand, how hard can it be to get a wheel fixed? Then again, it might need a new axle or something. On the other hand, buying a brand new mower that size will be a lot of money and basically I’m a cheapskate. On yet another hand, I’m not sure I want to spend the rest of the summer slogging around my big yard behind a little mower – especially since my grass is growing about a foot a day. On even another hand, I can’t convince my wife that mowing the grass is a lot of fun, so that option is out. I’m just going to have to bite the bullet, or in this case, the mower. It’s going to cost some cash, but I’m sure the guy with the small yard and the big John Deere has nothing but good memories about his time in the yard. I’ll have to try to be more like him.

Airstrike kills senior al-Qaida leader on FBI list in Yemen SANAA, Yemen (AP) — An airstrike Sunday killed a top al-Qaida leader on the FBI’s most wanted list for his role in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole warship, Yemeni officials said. The airstrike resembled earlier U.S. drone attacks, but the U.S. did not immediately confirm it. Fahd al-Quso was hit by a missile as he stepped out of his vehicle, along with another al-Qaida operative in the southern Shabwa province, Yemeni military officials said. They were speaking on condition of anonymity in accordance with military regulations. The airstrike came as the U.S. and Yemen cooperate in a battle against alQaida in southern Yemen. Al-Quso, 37, was on the FBI’s most wanted list, with a $5 million reward for information leading to his capture. He was indicted in the U.S. for his role in the 2000 bombing in the USS Cole in Aden, Yemen, in which 17 American sailors were killed and 39 injured. He served more than five years in a Yemeni prison for his role in the attack and was released in 2007. He briefly escaped prison in 2003 but later turned himself in to serve the rest of his sentence. A telephone text message claiming to be from al-Qaida media arm confirmed alQuso was killed in the strike. Al-Quso was also one of the most senior al-Qaida leaders publicly linked to the 2009 Christmas airliner attack. He has allegedly met with the suspected bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab in Yemen before he left on his way to execute his failed bombing over Detroit. In December 2010, al-Quso was designated a global terrorist by the State Department, an indication that his role in al-Qaida’s Yemen branch had grown more prominent. Local Yemeni official Abu Bakr bin Farid and the Yemeni Embassy in Washington confirmed al-Quso was killed in Rafd, a remote mountain valley in

Shabwa. It is the area where many of al-Qaida leaders are believed to have taken cover, including the U.S.-born cleric Anwar alAwlaki, killed in a U.S. airstrike in Yemen last year. Yemeni government officials reported that Al-Quso and al-Awlaki were killed in an airstrike in 2009 in Rafd, but they both resurfaced alive. Al-Quso was known for his ability to move in disguise. He was from the same tribe as al-Awlaki, and local tribesmen said he was a close aide. He studied ultraconservative Salafi Islam as a teenager in northern Yemen, then returned home to learn welding. The White House and the State Department had no immediate comment. Yemen’s government has been waging an offensive on al-Qaida militants, who have taken advantage of the country’s political turmoil over the last year to expand their hold in the south. The new Yemeni president has promised improved cooperation with the U.S. to combat the militants. On Saturday, he said the fight against al-Qaida is in its early stages. Al-Quso’s association with al-Qaida dated back more than a decade, when he met with Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. Bin Laden allegedly told him to “eliminate the infidels from the Arabian Peninsula.” From there he rose through the ranks. He was assigned in Aden to videotape the 1998 suicide bombing of the USS Cole, but he fell asleep. Despite the lapse, the local leader, Nasser al-Wahishi, declared him the regional leader in Aden. He was also believed to have played a prominent role in al-Qaida’s attack and capture last year of Zinjibar, the capital of Abyan province. Government troops are trying to drive al-Qaida out of Zinjibar.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — George Lindsey, who made a TV career as a grinning service station attendant named Goober on “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Hee Haw,” has died. He was 83. The Marshall-DonnellyCombs Funeral Home in Nashville said Lindsay died early Sunday morning after a brief illness. Lindsey was the beaniewearing Goober on “The Andy Griffith Show” from 1964 to 1968 and its successor, “Mayberry RFD,” from 1968 to 1971. He played the same jovial character on “Hee Haw” from 1971 until it went out of production in 1993. “America has grown up with me,” Lindsey said in an Associated Press interview in 1985. “Goober is every man; everyone finds something to like about ol’ Goober.” He joined “The Andy Griffith Show” in 1964 when Jim Nabors, portraying Gomer Pyle, left the program. Goober Pyle, who had been mentioned on the show as Gomer’s cousin, replaced him. “At that time, we were the best acting ensemble on TV,” Lindsey once told an interviewer. “The scripts were terrific. Andy is the best script constructionist I’ve ever been involved with. And you have to lift your acting level up to his; he’s awfully good.” In a statement released through the funeral home, Griffith said, “George Lindsey was my friend. I had great respect for his talent and his human spirit. In recent years, we spoke often by telephone. Our last conversation was a few days ago … I am happy to say that as we found ourselves in our eighties, we were not afraid to say, ‘I love you.’ That was the last thing George and I had to say to each other. ‘I love you.’” Although he was best known as Goober, Lindsey had other roles during a

Long fight predicted in Guantanamo case GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) — The U.S. has finally started the prosecution of five Guantanamo Bay prisoners charged in the Sept. 11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people, but the trial won’t be starting anytime soon, and both sides said Sunday that the case could continue for years. Defense lawyer James Connell said a tentative trial date of May 2013 is a “placeholder” until a true date can be set for the trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the selfdescribed mastermind of the attacks, and his co-defendants. “It’s going to take time,” said the chief prosecutor, Army Brig. Gen. Mark Martins, who said he expects to battle a barrage of defense motions before the case goes to trial. “I am getting ready for hundreds of motions because we want them to shoot everything they can shoot at us,” he said in the wake of Saturday’s arraignment, which dragged on for 13 hours due to stalling tactics by the defendants. “Everyone is frustrated by the delay,” Martins said. He noted that the civilian trial of convicted Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui took four years, and he pleaded guilty in 2006 before being sentenced to life in prison. On Saturday, Mohammed and his codefendants refused to respond to the judge or use the court’s translation system and one of the men demanded a lengthy reading of the charges. Connell called the tactics “peaceful

resistance to an unjust system.” The arraignment, Connell said, “demonstrates that this will be a long, hard-fought but peaceful struggle against secrecy, torture and the misguided institution of the military commissions.” The defendants’ actions outraged relatives of the victims. “They’re engaging in jihad in a courtroom,” said Debra Burlingame, whose brother, Charles, was the pilot of the plane that flew into the Pentagon. She watched the proceeding from Brooklyn on one of the closedcircuit video feeds around the United States. A handful of those who lost family members in the attacks were selected by a lottery and flown to watch the proceedings at the U.S. naval base in Cuba, where Mohammed and his co-defendants put off their pleas until a later date. They face 2,976 counts of murder and terrorism in the 2001 attacks that sent hijacked jetliners into New York’s World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The charges carry the death penalty. The detainees’ lawyers spent hours questioning the judge, Army Col. James Pohl, about his qualifications to hear the case and suggested their clients were being mistreated at the hearing, in a strategy that could pave the way for future appeals. Mohammed was subjected to a strip search and “inflammatory and unnecessary” treatment before court, said his attorney, David Nevin. It was the defendants’ first appearance in

Biden OK with equal rights for married gay couples WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden says he’s “absolutely comfortable” with gay couples who marry getting the same civil rights and liberties as heterosexual couples, a stand that gay rights advocates interpreted as an endorsement of same-sex marriage. But the White House and President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign, eager to avoid a debate on a hot-button social issue in an election year, insisted that Biden was not breaking ranks with Obama, who does not publicly support gay marriage. Biden told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that marriage should be about being loyal to someone you love, whether that marriage is

between a man and a woman, two men or two women. “I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women and heterosexual men and women marrying one another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties,” Biden said in the interview broadcast Sunday. BIDEN Gay rights advocates said Biden’s comments signaled unmistakable support for gay marriage, which they said made him the highest-ranking member in the Obama adminis-

tration to take that position. “”I’m grateful that the vice president of the United States is now publically supporting marriage equality and I hope very soon the president and the rest of our leaders, Republicans and Democrats in Congress, will fall in line with the vice president,” said Chad Griffin, a gay rights supporter and a member of the Obama campaign’s national finance committee. Joe Solmonese, the president of the Human Rights Campaign, said his group was encouraged

by Biden’s comments and called on Obama to speak out for “full marriage equality” for same-sex couples. While Obama opposes gay marriage, he says his personal views on the matter are “evolving” and has noted that polls show Americans are increasingly supporting same-sex marriage. Biden, a devout Catholic, has said previously that personal views, as well as the country’s, on gay marriage are evolving. The vice president’s office said Sunday after the interview aired that Biden’s comments were not an endorsement of gay marriage, but simply a reaffirmation of his belief that samesex couples deserve the same

rights and protections as all Americans. David Axelrod, a senior adviser to the Obama campaign, chimed in on Twitter, saying Biden and Obama share the view that all married couples should have the same legal rights. For the Obama campaign, gay marriage has become a vexing election year issue. Each time the campaign promotes the president’s extensive work in advancing gay rights, including ending the military’s ban on openly gay service members, it is reminded of the one area where the president has fallen short in the eyes of gay rights advocates.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate is the newest arena in the election-year face-off over federal student loans, and both sides are starting out by pounding away at each other. With Congress returning from a weeklong spring recess, the Senate plans to vote Tuesday on whether to start debating a Democratic plan to keep college loan interest rates for 7.4 million students from doubling on July 1. The $6 billion measure would be paid for by collecting more Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes from high-earning owners of some privately held corporations. Republicans want a vote on their own bill, which like the Democrats’ would freeze today’s 3.4 percent interest rates on subsidized Stafford loans for one more year. It would be financed by eliminating a preventive health program established by President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Each side scoffs that the other’s proposal is unacceptable, and neither is expected to garner the votes needed to prevail. Even so, everyone expects a bipartisan deal before July 1 because no one wants

Jack Reed, chief sponsor of the Democratic bill. “But I also think I recognize if there is another proposal outside of going after the health care fund, we’ll certainly listen.” Stafford loans are made to low- and middle-income students.

bolize how each party would help families cope with the rugged economy and how to pay for it. Lawmakers face a pile of other issues this week as well. On Tuesday, the House Judiciary Committee plans to vote on GOP-written legislation renewing federal efforts to prevent domestic violence. The Senate voted to renew the Violence Against Women Act two weeks ago and included provisions, such as requiring groups receiving money to show they don’t discriminate against gays, that drew opposition from conservatives. The House version is expected to leave out such contentious language. That same day, HouseSenate bargainers plan to start talks on overhauling federal transportation programs. Congress is under pressure to act because the trust fund that pays for highway aid to states is forecast to go broke next year. Transportation programs have limped along under nine short-term extensions since the last long-term transportation bill expired in 2009, and the current one expires June 30.




Back up your claim with some up-to-date statistics Dear Annie: I have a neverending situation with my husband, whom I love very much. We have two preteen daughters he insists on taking across the border to Mexico to visit his family. With the recent drug wars and violence there, I am beside myself in allowing this to happen. The arguments have been so heated that we've actually talked to lawyers. Neither one of us wants to end up in divorce court, but we are both firm in our positions. He takes the kids to visit about once a week, and I'm strongly against it. My lawyer said that since we live in a border town, he didn't think a court would prevent my husband from taking the kids to Mexico. I'm not so sure. I hate to say it, but if it keeps my girls safe, I'm willing to leave him if that means he won't be able to transport them out of the country to Mexico. Any advice? — Texas Dear Texas: The U.S. recently issued travel warnings for Mexico. Your husband undoubtedly feels there is no undue risk in visiting his family, but he is not accepting the reality of the situation there. Go online and get some up-to-date statistics about the increase in violence, and see whether you can convince him to be more careful with his daughters' lives. Is there any possibility that the in-laws could meet your husband in Texas? Would they be willing to arrange a visit in a safer area of Mexico (there are several)? Keep in mind that a divorce would not necessarily prevent your husband from taking the children across the border, so we urge you to find a way to work this out. Dear Annie: I am getting married in October. Everything was going smoothly until my fiance mentioned that his mom wanted her cousin's daughter, "Michelle," to be a bridesmaid. I have never met Michelle, she doesn't speak English, and I would feel uncomfortable having her play such an important role. My fiance said it would be a nice thing to do, especially since Michelle has cancer, but he left the decision to me. I decided against it, but was adamant that she attend the wedding as a guest. My fiance's family, however, felt it was an attack on them. His mom said she wouldn't feel welcome at our wedding and refuses to attend if Michelle isn't a bridesmaid. Then my fiance's sister (who is a bridesmaid) said she wasn't going to attend, either. I was heartbroken and confused, and my fiance is trapped in the middle. I now feel Michelle has to be a bridesmaid in order to keep the peace. Was I selfish to deny her in the first place? My fiance's mom says no matter what I do, she will never look at me the same way. — Bride-to-Be Dear Bride: Let's get a couple of things straight. Yes, the bride selects her bridesmaids, and the future in-laws should not be pressuring and threatening you. However, this particular choice means a great deal to them, and it is wise for a bride to periodically please her future in-laws. Including Michelle from the start would have been a minor inconvenience to you while gaining lots of brownie points with your fiance and his family. Now you appear to be heartless. If you stick to your guns, you'll end up with nothing. So suck it up, apologize profusely, and say you didn't realize how important it was to include Michelle and you'd be proud and happy to do so. Dear Annie: I agree with "Friend of a Young Cancer Victim" that it's better to donate to charity or medical research than spend the money on flowers at a funeral. However, when I have done this, more often than not, I am inundated with endless requests for further donations. This makes me not want to donate at all. — Another Fan Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

How to Rob a Bank



HOW TO PLAY: Complete the grid so that every row, column and 3x3 box contains every digit from 1 to 9 inclusively. Find answers to today’s puzzle in tomorrow’s Troy Daily News. SATURDAY’S SOLUTION:


There are so many uses for foam boxes Dear Readers: In a recent column, a reader asked for suggestions about what to do with all of the insulated foam boxes. Here is what some of you said: Dennis in Washington says, “I take them to the local mailing center for recycling.” Sondra in Nebraska says: “Those foam boxes are prized by fishermen! They are perfect for transporting worms used for bait.” Eileen in New York says: “I break them up into small pieces and use them in the bottom of pots for plants. It fills the pot, and I don’t have to use so much soil.” Victoria in Montana uses the

Hints from Heloise Columnist foam boxes to cover new plants to keep them from freezing. Jane, via email, says: “I use foam boxes to store seasonal decorations. They hold up better than cardboard boxes and are more protective.” Cathy, via email, says: “I love having those foam boxes on hand for gatherings! It’s nice to have

insulated containers to send leftovers home with guests.” These are all great reuse and recycle hints! So many suggestions came in that I will do a follow-up column. Keep an eye out, and keep sending in your hints! — Heloise FAST FACTS Dear Heloise: Here are some handy uses for plastic frosting tubs: • Hold loose straight pins. • Keep excess change in one. • Use to organize a desk drawer. • Use to scoop pet or bird food from a larger container. • Place small amounts of

paint in one for small jobs. — Phyllis in Arkansas OPEN SAFELY Dear Heloise: I use a handcrank can opener. Almost every time I used it, I could never completely detach the lid from the can. I had to bend the lid up by the small piece of metal still connected. Now, when opening a can with the opener, I clamp the opener to the can and turn the crank about one-quarter turn counterclockwise, then proceed to turn the crank clockwise to open the can. The lid comes off neatly just about every time. — Ray, via email



Monday, May 7, 2012










HOROSCOPE Monday, May 7, 2012 The more knowledgeable you become in your chosen field of endeavor during the next year, the greater your possibilities for success. Do what you can to prepare yourself well, and opportunity will knock loudly. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Watch how you phrase your requests, or they could come out sounding more like demands than appeals. Try to see things from the others’ perspectives. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Strive to be a bit more comforting than annoyed if your mate is in a grumpy mood. Calming words could be the elixir that would work wonders on fraying nerves. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — The only way you’ll have anything worthwhile to show for your time is to apply industry, not apathy. Nothing will get done if all you do is voice excuses and neglect your duties. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — A lot of discipline will be required in the management of your resources. To make matters worse, an additional dosage may be necessary in the handling of others’ funds as well. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Unless you’re careful, you could stoop to taking out your frustration on those for whom you care the most, only because you know they’re the ones who’ll take it without complaint. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t attempt to use flattery, subterfuge or insincerity when trying to make a pitch for something you want. Those you deal with will be able to perceive your motives. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — If your judgment is based on pure emotion, you may have trouble distinguishing between those to whom you should be generous and those who don’t deserve anything. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Be careful that you don’t wrongly cater to someone who never has and never will do you any good, while barely acknowledging one who has helped you out previously and would again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t let yourself become entranced with someone who is already committed. You’d be asking for trouble if you trespass in forbidden territory. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Treat all business endeavors seriously, but especially those involving people you know socially. Unless that distinction is clearly marked, you’ll be asking for trouble. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Should you find that your companions are only partially in accord with your purposes, causing you to attempt to manipulate them into agreement, they’ll be even more disenchanted. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Persons who are under your directives might need some skillful handling. Unless you can find a way to inspire them, they aren’t likely to accomplish much of anything.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Monday, May 7, the 128th day of 2012. There are 238 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 7, 1812, English poet Robert Browning was born in London. On this date: • In 1789, the first inaugural ball was held in New York in honor of President George Washington and his wife, Martha. • In 1824, Beethoven’s

Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125, had its premiere in Vienna. • In 1915, nearly 1,200 people died when a German torpedo sank the British liner RMS Lusitania off the Irish coast. • In 1941, Glenn Miller and His Orchestra recorded “Chattanooga Choo Choo” for RCA Victor. • In 1942, U.S. Army Gen. Jonathan Wainwright went on a Manila radio station to announce the Allied surrender of the Philippines to Japanese forces

during World War II. • In 1945, Germany signed an unconditional surrender at Allied headquarters in Rheims (rams), France, ending its role in World War II. • Today’s Birthdays: Former Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M., is 80. Singer Jimmy Ruffin is 73. Actress Robin Strasser is 67. Singer-songwriter Bill Danoff is 66. Rhythm-and-blues singer Thelma Houston is 66. Rock musician Bill Kreutzmann (Grateful Dead) is 66.

Moms are celebrated around the world

Everybody is convinced that the best mom in the world is theirs. That’s probably why Mother’s Day is celebrated in dozens of countries around the world, although not always on the same date. There’s nothing new about honouring a mother’s unique role within the family and society as a whole. Ancient Greeks were known to celebrate Rhea, the mother of the Gods, and countless other religions have celebrated the fertility and nur-

turing qualities of women. The perpetuation of this tradition in North America goes back to an American, Anna Jarvis, who lost her mother on the second Sunday of May, 1906. She convinced the authorities in her small Virginian town to mark Mother’s Day with a religious ceremony the following year. The idea was so popular that the entire state of Virginia began an official celebration for mothers in 1907. A few years later, in

a wide range of dates around the world. It’s celebrated as early as February in Norway and as late as December in Panama and Indonesia. Between these two extremes, hardly a month goes by without some country honouring their mothers with a special day. One thing is certain though, no matter the place or the date, mothers deserve to be celebrated!

This notice is provided as a public service by

handling equipment, is currently seeking qualified candidates for the following positions at our New Bremen and Celina, OH locations.

Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.

A push from Busch

May 7, 2012

Keselowski head-smart in Talladega victory TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — The leader on the last lap isn’t supposed to win at Talladega Superspeedway. Everybody knows that. Brad Keselowski disagrees, and he showed how to do it Sunday with a calculated plan that sent him to Victory Lane. Keselowski used a big push from Kyle Busch to pass leader Matt Kenseth, and after leaving the Daytona 500 winner in their wake, Keselowski staved off Busch’s attempt to snatch the win. Using a move Keselowski

said he had dreamed about, he held on for his second win of the season and second at Talladega. “I had this whole plan if I ever got in that situation where I was leading; I thought about it and thought about it, dreamed about what to do, and sure enough, going into (turn) three, it was just me and Kyle,” Keselowski said. “I knew the move I wanted to pull. It worked because the AP PHOTO guy running second should have Brad Keselowski drives under the checkered flag to win the the advantage, but I had this NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race at Talladega

Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos throws to the Pittsburgh Pirates in the sixth inning of a baseball game Sunday in Pittsburgh. The Reds won 5-0.

Looking like a stud Latos fans 11 as Reds silence Pirates, 5-0 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Mat Latos spent Sunday morning trying to quell a queasy stomach. All the Cincinnati right-hander really needed was a little bit of defensive help and an overpowering fastball. Feeling lightheaded and chugging Gatorade, Latos fought off the bug and a shaky first inning to strike out a career-high 11 and lead the Reds to a 5-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday.

“Sometimes when guys don’t feel quite right, a lot of times they throw their best games,” Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker said. “You settle down, you’re concentrating, you try not to overthrow because you don’t have the strength to do so.” Baker joked that he kept calling Latos “Michael Jordan” in the dugout between innings and Latos kept reassuring his manager he was OK. Latos (2-2) certainly appeared to be fine while giving

up two runs over six innings. So did the three relievers who upped Cincinnati’s strikeout total to 17, tying a club record for a nine-inning game. The biggest of the 17 whiffs came in the first as Latos tightroped out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam. Third baseman Todd Frazier got the first out with a spectacular diving grab on a liner by Casey McGehee, a smash hit so hard Latos started

2313 W. Main St. Troy 440-9016

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Rickie Fowler finally picked up his first PGA Tour win Sunday in what might be the start of a rivalry for years to come. Fowler brought style and substance to a sudden-death playoff at Quail Hollow and delivered a clutch shot a wedge into 4 feet to birdie the 18th hole and win the Wells Fargo Championship over U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points. The 23-year-old Fowler has been talked about as the next American star since he turned pro with his flashy colors and allorange outfit on Sunday, his trademark. Now he has a trophy to back up the hype, coming in his 67th start as a pro on the PGA Tour. And he beat the 23-year-old McIlroy to do it. “I’m looking forward to playing with Rory for a long time,” said Flower, who closed with a 3-under 69. “It’s awesome. It’s a long wait, but well worth it.” McIlroy established himself on the same green two years ago, a 20-year-old who closed out a record 62 by making a 40-foot putt. This time, it was Fowler’s turn. Along for the ride was Points, a 35-year-old who had the tournament in his grasp until ending 40 straight holes without a bogey by making one at the worst time. He had a one-shot lead going to the 18th in regulation, hit his approach in a bunker and never came close to a par. McIlroy had a shot at winning in regulation and missed a 15-foot birdie putt. In the playoff, all three hit the fairway, with McIlroy hitting a 3wood that traveled nearly 340 yards. Fowler’s wedge covered the flag and spun some 4 feet away. Points went long and did well to two-putt for his par, making the second one from 12 feet. McIlroy hit his wedge well right of the flag and had to work hard for a twoputt par. That set the stage for Fowler, and he wasn’t about to let this chance get away.

Indians top Rangers, hand Darvish 1st loss CLEVELAND (AP) — A glaring problem cost Yu Darvish and the Texas Rangers. Ubaldo Jimenez pitched seven scoreless innings and Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two-run double after the Rangers lost an infield popup in the sun as the Cleveland Indians handed Darvish his first major league

loss, 4-2 Sunday. Jason Kipnis homered off Darvish (4-1), who struck out a career-high 11 over six innings. Jimenez (3-2) walked four in the first three innings but settled down and permitted only two hits. Johnny Damon’s pop fell for a leadoff single in the third, lead-

ing to a three-run inning. “If the ball goes into the sun, what can you do?” Darvish said through an interpreter. “If this was the first loss ever in my life I would feel different,” he said. “But I have experienced many losses. So now, I just prepare for my next game.” Darvish signed a $56 million,

Madison Square miracle Anthony, Knicks snap 13-game playoff losing streak, beat Heat


Cleveland Indians’ Jason Kipnis slides home safely, scoring on a two-run double by Asdrubal Cabrera during a game against the Texas Rangers Sunday in Cleveland.

Indians ■ CONTINUED FROM 16 Rangers manager Ron said. Washington “Sometimes you can throw well and not get results.” Chris Perez pitched the ninth for his 11th consecutive save. He allowed one hit and was helped by a diving catch by right fielder Shin-Soo Choo on a sinking liner by pinch-hitter Adrian Beltre. The Indians took the series from the two-time defending AL champions, who went 21-4 against them the previous three seasons. Cleveland has won three straight series and leads the AL Central. “We played a terrific series,” Indians manager

Manny Acta said. “Anytime you take two of three from a team like that, it’s very encouraging.” Jimenez was helped out of a two-on, one-out jam in the first when catcher Carlos Santana threw out Josh Hamilton trying to advance to second on a pitch in the dirt. Jimenez then struck out Michael Young with a runner on third. In the third, Jimenez issued three straight twoout walks, but got out of it when Young grounded out. “If we could have put runs on the board when we had opportunities early, it may have been different,” Washington said.

■ Major League Baseball

Reds ■ CONTINUED FROM 16 looking in left field for the ball only to see Frazier lift up his glove. “Luckily I got it in the glove,” Frazier said. “It almost snuck out at the end. I was holding it up there, trying to let him know. I knew Matty would do his thing. Whatever you can do to help is great, and he can help himself.” Latos then caught Nate McLouth looking with a 94 mph fastball to escape. The Pirates didn’t get a runner to third during Latos’ final five innings. “We had a chance to take the game in a different direction in the first inning and we did not,” Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said. Drew Stubbs had three

hits, including a two-run homer, and scored three times for the Reds. Frazier added his first home run of the season as Cincinnati continued its strong play in series finales. The Reds are 8-1 on getaway days, including 5-0 on Sundays. Charlie Morton (1-3) struggled to keep his sinker down and gave up five runs, four earned, on seven hits in six innings. He struck out five and walked two. It was a far cry from the dominance Morton showed against the Reds last year, when he shut them out twice. He’s still finding his way after offseason hip surgery and admitted he appears to have lost a feel for his signature pitch.

NHL history to eliminate their conference’s top two seeds in the same postseason. Devils 4, Flyers 2 NEWARK, N.J. — Dainius Zubrus scored two goals and the New Jersey Devils rallied from an early two-goal deficit and pushed the Philadelphia Flyers to the brink of elimination with a 4-2 victory Sunday in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal.

NEW YORK (AP) — Amare Stoudemire raised his hands in the air, one covered in padding, as streamers fell from the ceiling above him. Finally, New York could celebrate an NBA playoff victory again. Carmelo Anthony scored 41 points, Stoudemire had 20 points and 10 rebounds in his return from a cut hand, and the Knicks snapped an NBA-record, 13-game postseason losing streak by beating the Miami Heat 89-87 Sunday in Game 4 of their firstround series. “I think it’s the first of many,” said Stoudemire, his left arm back in a sling to keep his hand elevated. “Tonight was a great win for us, for our fans to finally get over that hump of those consecutive games that we lost, I guess the Knicks, lost over those years in the playoffs.” Anthony made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 54.5 seconds left as the Knicks overcame another serious injury to win a playoff game for the first time since beating Toronto on April 29, 2001, in Game 3 of a best-of-five series. Baron Davis dislocated his right kneecap in the third quarter, just as the Knicks were making the run that got them back into the game after a dismal first half. “I’m just glad that we came together after that, kept our composure, kept on fighting and won the basketball game,” Anthony said. LeBron James scored 27 for the Heat, who will try to close it out in Game 5 at home on Wednesday. Dwyane Wade had 22, but missed a 3-pointer on the last possession that would have given Miami a lengthy rest before starting the second round. “We’d love to take the week (off) but it’s not in the cards for us to do that in this round,” Wade said. “You know, we’ll adjust. We play Wednesday in Miami at 7 o’clock. We’ll be ready to play and give our fans another exciting game.” Wade’s errant shot set off a loud celebration from Knicks fans whose team was on the verge of getting

It didn’t look as if the elusive postseason victory would come in this series, after the Knicks had been blown out by 20 points per game in the first three games. 76ers 89, Bulls 82 PHILADELPHIA — Spencer Hawes scored 22 points and Jrue Holiday had 20 to help Philadelphia beat topseeded Chicago for a 3-1 lead in the first-round series. Andre Iguodala had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Sixers, who have won

the last three games after dropping Game 1 in Chicago. Holiday stretched the lead with consecutive 3pointers late in the game to put the Sixers one win away from becoming only the fifth No. 8 seed to win an opening round series. Memphis pulled it off last season against San Antonio, and Golden State (2007), New York (1999) and Denver (1994) also accomplished the rare feat Carlos Boozer had 23 points and 11 rebounds, and Taj Gibson added 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Bulls, who played without Derrick Rose (torn ACL) and Joakim

Noah (sprained ankle). Rose is out for the season and Noah is day to day for the rest of the series. Game 5 is Tuesday in Chicago. Celtics 101, Hawks 79 BOSTON — Paul Pierce scored 24 points in 18 minutes and the Boston Celtics opened a 37-point third-quarter lead before coasting to a 101-79 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night to take a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. The Celtics can finish off the Hawks in Atlanta on Tuesday. Game 6 would be in Boston on Thursday, if necessary.

conceded there’s little the leader can do to preserve the victory on the last lap of a restrictor-plate race, and predicted how Sunday would unfold. “If you’re leading, being pushed, plan on finishing second. That’s all there is to it,” Busch said after Saturday’s defeat. So he should have been sitting pretty after pushing Keselowski to the front. Instead, Keselowski went high into the third turn, then pulled off of Busch’s bumper to create some separation. “That allowed me to drive untouched to the checkered flag,” Keselowski said. “It wasn’t easy to convince

myself to do that, but it was the right move.” Busch initially seemed dumbfounded. “I must have screwed something up, because we got to turn three and came unhooked,” Busch said. “Just gave the win away over there. Not sure exactly what happened. We definitely need to go back and figure out what it was.” Kenseth didn’t feel much better. He led seven times for a race-high 73 laps, but believed he gave the win away on the final restart. A nine-car accident with four laps remaining brought out the yellow flag, setting up a two-lap overtime sprint

to the finish. Kenseth, as the leader, got to pick where he wanted to restart and chose the outside line so Roush Fenway Racing teammate Greg Biffle would line up behind him and presumably push him to the victory. That put Keselowski and Busch together on the inside line, but they drifted back on the restart as Kenseth indeed was able to jump out to a huge lead. It was probably too big of a lead. Kenseth got a little too far away from Biffle, which gave the Keselowski-Busch tandem a chance to catch him. The two cars sailed past Kenseth on the outside line.

He did it with a plan that left both Busch and Kenseth flat-footed, and both praised Keselowski after the race. “He’s no dummy, that’s for sure,” said Busch, who wound up second for the second consecutive day. Busch was the leader on the last lap of Saturday’s Nationwide Series race, and was passed by Joey Logano right at the finish line. He

Mayweather solid, still shuns Pacquiao LAS VEGAS (AP) — Floyd Mayweather Jr. was getting ready to make his ring walk about the time Manny Pacquiao arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on Philippine Airlines Flight 102. He’ll be occupying a cell at the Clark County Detention Center by the time Pacquiao makes his way to this gambling city for his June 9 fight with Timothy Bradley. The two are seemingly destined never to be in the same spot at the same time. Certainly not in the ring,

something Mayweather made clear Saturday night after taking on Miguel Cotto in a bruising fight that, if not his best, was certainly among his most exciting. “The PacquiaoMayweather fight is not going to happen,” Mayweather said. “It’s not my fault.” More on that later, though Mayweather could be called out for using some convoluted logic about why the fight won’t happen. Suffice it to say he believes he’s in the driver’s seat for

any mega-fight, and is both suspicious of Pacquiao and unwilling to take equal money for the bout. After making a minimum $32 million in an impressive performance Saturday night against Cotto, Mayweather could be excused for dismissing what would be the richest fight in boxing history. But, with jail time coming up for a domestic abuse charge, there will be plenty of time for reflection about his future “I don’t know where we’re going to go from here

because we basically have fought everybody in this sport,” Mayweather said. “I don’t have to fight if I don’t want to.” Indeed, Mayweather hinted of retirement following his tough battle with Cotto, which ended with Mayweather claiming a piece of the 154-pound title with a unanimous decision. But there’s huge money still to be made, and he’s a fighter who burns through cash with a Money Team entourage that seems to grow with each fight.
