Winfrey: Learn from failures CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — The invitation from Harvard University caught Oprah Winfrey at a low point. Her new TV network was struggling, branded a flop in the media, when Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust called last year to ask Winfrey to address 2013 graduates. The request came “in the very moment when I had stopped succeeding,” Winfrey recalled. She headed for a long shower to think (“It was either that or a bag of Oreos,” she joked) and emerged resolved to change her story by the time her speech rolled around. A year later, Winfrey said, her Oprah Winfrey Network has found its footing and her approach to facing setbacks had been validated. Stumbles are inevitable but not permanent, Winfrey told graduates Thursday.

THIS PHOTO taken May 5 shows Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee during the Ohio State University spring commencement in Columbus. Gee told a university committee last December that Notre Dame wasn’t invited to join the Big Ten because they’re not good partners while also jokingly saying that “those damn Catholics” can’t be trusted. Thursday in an email, declining to say when the apology was made. Notre Dame has a storied collegiate football history and is perhaps the nation’s pre-eminent Roman Catholic university. Ohio State, with about 56,000 students on its main campus, is among the country’s biggest universities, and it has its own long football tradition. A message was left with Smith, the Ohio State athletic director who attended the December meeting and who also is a 1977 Notre Dame graduate. NCAA President Mark Emmert declined to comment, saying he hadn’t heard the remarks. Ohio State’s Athletic
Council meets monthly during the fall, winter and spring and makes recommendations on athletic policy including ticket prices. December’s meeting was at Ohio Stadium. Gee was introduced by Athletic Council thenchairman Charlie Wilson, and Gee’s name and introduction are included in written minutes of the meeting. His comments drew laughter, at times loud, occasionally nervous, but no rebukes, according to the audio. Ohio State trustees learned of Gee’s “offensive statements” in January, met with the president at length and created the remediation plan for Gee to “address his behavior,” board pres-
ident Robert Schottenstein said in a statement. Comments by a university leader about “particular groups, classes of people or individuals are wholly unacceptable,” Schottenstein said. “These statements were inappropriate, were not presidential in nature and do not comport with the core values of the university.” Gee has gotten in trouble before for offhand remarks, most recently during a memorabiliafor-cash and tattoos scandal under football coach Jim Tressel’s watch. Gee was asked in March 2011 whether he had considered firing Tressel. He responded: “No, are you kidding? Let me just be very clear: I’m just hopeful the coach doesn’t dismiss me.” Tressel stepped down three months later. In November 2010, Gee boasted that Ohio State’s football schedule didn’t include teams on par with the “Little Sisters of the Poor.” An apologetic Gee later sent a personal check to the real Little Sisters of the Poor in northwest Ohio and followed up with a visit to the nuns months later. Last year, Gee apologized for comparing the problem of coordinating the school’s many divisions to the Polish army, a remark that a PolishAmerican group called bigoted and ignorant. In 1992, in a moment of frustration over higher-education funding, Gee told a student newspaper reporter, “the governor’s a damn dummy.” Then-Gov. George Voinovich laughed it off, and the two became allies. Gee was named the country’s best college
president in 2010 by Time magazine, and he has one of the highestprofile resumes of any college leader in recent history. He has held the top job at West Virginia University, the University of Colorado, Brown University and Vanderbilt University. He was Ohio State president from 1990 to 1997 and returned in 2007. Gee, 69, earns about $1.9 million annually in base pay, deferred and performance compensation and retirement benefits. He is a prolific fundraiser and is leading a $2.5 billion campaign at Ohio State. He is omnipresent on campus, attending everything from faculty awards events to dormitory pizza parties. He is known for his bow ties — he has hundreds — and his horn-rimmed glasses. During his comments to the Athletic Council, Gee also questioned the academic integrity of schools in the Southeastern Conference and the University of Louisville. The top goal of Big Ten presidents is to “make certain that we have institutions of like-minded academic integrity,” Gee said. “So you won’t see us adding Louisville,” which is also joining the ACC. After a pause followed by laughter from the audience, Gee added that the Big Ten wouldn’t add the University of Kentucky, either. Louisville spokesman Mark Hebert said the university accepted Gee’s apology but planned to forward Gee information about the upward trajectory of its academic and athletic programs. Kentucky president Eli Capilouto declined to comment.
Governor: Lawsuits Senate pitches update may take money away to school funding plan from lake treatment BY HEATHER RUTZ Civitas Media NEW BREMEN — Gov. John Kasich expressed concern Wednesday that settling expensive lawsuits with flooded property owners near Grand Lake will take money away from treating and preventing algae blooms there. Kasich, speaking before he addressed a crowd at the Auglaize County Republican Women’s Lincoln/Reagan Dinner, said the state has kept its word to address the algae issues at the lake and hoped the lawsuits weren’t a “money grab” from property owners. “Those lawsuits could take money away from the treatment of the lake, because there’s only so many dollars to go to these facilities. So I hope these lawsuits are going to work their way out. Instead of putting money in people’s pockets that lived near a lake that from time to time may have seen some flooding on their land, and maybe not extensive, I’d rather put the money into fixing the lake,” Kasich said. The Ohio Supreme Court has ordered the Department of Natural Resources to compensate 87 landowners near Grand Lake for losses from flooding near the 20-square-mile lake. The governor also said the state is receiving significant cooperation from nearly all the farmers in the area to help continue
addressing manure runoff. The health of the lake has been improving with treatment. A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency report indicated in March the 2012 alum treatment reduced the internal phosphorus load in Grand Lake by 55 percent. However, this spring, the state put up a new warning for senior citizens, children and those with compromised immune systems to stay out of the water. The lake and state park and the local tourism economy that relies on the lake have been damaged by toxic algae problems since high levels were discovered in 2010. The bluegreen algae in Grand Lake grow thick, feeding on phosphorus from manure that rains washed off nearby farms. The algae produce toxins that can make people sick and kill pets and fish. Since 2011, the state has worked with the Grand Lake St. Marys Restoration Commission and the Lake Improvement Association to implement several new practices as part of a comprehensive, longterm plan to improve the health of the lake; but the state will not apply a third alum treatment to the lake this year. In a shirt and tie but no jacket, Kasich didn’t use the microphone, but instead stood in front of a lectern and talked to the crowd for about 40 minutes. Already opposed in
the 2014 gubernatorial race by Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, Kasich said the state has made an economic comeback and that reforms achieved in economic development, regulation and education will be models for other states. Kasich touted his JobsOhio program. Now running, it was a campaign promise Kasich made to privatize economic development in Ohio. Kasich also said Ohio’s economy has rebounded, turning from 350,000 lost jobs to gains of more than 140,000 jobs in the past two years. The Ohio Democratic Party has said the state’s economy is actually stalling after those initial gains. Democrats pointed to nonpartisan study Wednesday, listing Ohio as 47th in the nation in job creation this past year. Also Wednesday, in an interview before the speech and during it, Kasich expressed optimism for expanded Medicaid programming, even though the Legislature has largely blocked it. He continued to push on the issue, including giving an impassioned plea to the crowd to support expansion to help people with mental illness and addiction and move the working poor to health coverage. “When we’re doing well, we cannot ignore people who live on the margins,” Kasich said.
COLUMBUS (AP) — Majority Republicans in the Ohio Senate proposed an education funding plan on Thursday that they said spreads more money to more school districts, as they look to leave their mark on the spending blueprint. The Senate plan would increase state spending on K-12 education in the two-year budget by more than $717 million compared to the current budget, which ends June 30. Schools would see an additional $141.6 million in direct state aid under the GOP-controlled Senate plan, compared to the funding formula the House passed in its version of the budget bill. Senate President Keith Faber told reporters the money stems from expected adjustments to state revenue and Medicaid caseload projections. “It is a significant investment across the spectrum,” said Faber, a Celina Republican.
Faber cautioned that the education proposal is still a work in progress. Additional changes could come Tuesday in the Senate Finance Committee. A full Senate vote on the budget is planned for June 6. Senators also added $54 million to help schools meet a state mandate that students must know how to read before leaving third grade. Early childhood education would also see an additional $30 million over the budget period. State aid school districts get for each student would see a boost compared to Gov. John Kasich’s proposed figures — up from Kasich’s $5,000 per student to $5,745 in the first year and $5,800 in the second year of the budget. The Senate is also considering whether to set aside another $50 million for the governor’s proposed Straight A fund, which will deliver grants to districts for innovation and efficiency measures.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Friday, May 31, the 151st day of 2013. There are 214 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 31, 1669, English diarist Samuel Pepys (peeps) wrote the final entry of his journal, blaming his failing eyesight for his inability to continue. On this date: • In 1790, President George Washington signed into law the first U.S. copyright act. • In 1859, the Big Ben clock tower in London went into operation, chiming for the first time. • In 1889, more than 2,000 people perished when a dam break sent water rushing through Johnstown, Pa. • In 1910, the Union of South Africa was founded. • In 1913, U.S. Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan proclaimed the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, providing for popular election of U.S. senators, to be in effect. • In 1941, “Tobacco Road,” a play about an impoverished Southern family based on the novel by Erskine Caldwell, closed on Broadway after a run of 3,182 performances. • In 1961, South Africa became an independent republic as it withdrew from the British Commonwealth. • In 1962, former Nazi official Adolf Eichmann was hanged in Israel a few minutes before midnight for his role in the Holocaust. • In 1970, a magnitude 7.9 earthquake in Peru claimed an estimated 67,000 lives. • In 1977, the transAlaska oil pipeline, three years in the making, was completed. • In 1985, at least 88 people were killed, more than 1,000 injured, as over 40 tornadoes swept through parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and Ontario, Canada, during an 8-hour period. • In 1994, the United States announced it was no longer aiming long-range nuclear missiles at targets in the former Soviet Union.

OUT OF THE BLUE
Pencil in brain removed BERLIN (AP) — German doctors say a man spent 15 years with a pencil in his head following a childhood accident. Aachen University Hospital says the 24-year-old man from Afghanistan sought help in 2011 after suffering for years from headaches, constant colds and worsening vision in one eye. A scan showed that a 10-centimeter (4inch) pencil was lodged from his sinus to his pharynx and had injured his right eye socket. The unnamed man said he didn’t know how the pencil got there but recalled that he once fell badly as a child. The German doctors removed the pencil and say the man has recovered. Hospital spokesman Mathias Brandstaedter said Wednesday the case was presented for the first time at a medical conference this week.
Sidney Daily News, Friday, May 31, 2013
Presence of explosive chemicals often kept secret WASHINGTON (AP) — Fears of terrorism have made it harder than ever for citizens to find out what dangerous chemicals lurk in their backyards, The Associated Press has found. Secrecy and shoddy record-keeping have kept the public and emergency workers in the dark about stockpiles of explosive material. A monthlong reporting effort by the AP, drawing upon public records in 28 states, found more than 120 facilities within a potentially devastating blast zone of schoolchildren, the elderly and the sick. But how many others exist nationwide is a mystery, as other states refused to provide data. People living near these facilities who want to know what hazardous materials they store would also have to request the
information from state environmental agencies or emergency management offices. County emergency management officials would also have it. The federal government does not have a central database, and while the Homeland Security Department has a list of ammonium nitrate facilities, it does not share it because of security concerns. Until the local fertilizer company in West, Texas, blew up last month and demolished scores of homes, many in that town didn’t know what chemicals were stored alongside the railroad tracks or how dangerous they were. Even some of the rescue workers didn’t know what they were up against “We never thought of an explosive potential,” said Dr. George Smith, the EMS director who responded to the factory fire
by running to a nearby nursing home to prepare for a possible chemical spill. Around the country, hundreds of buildings like the one in West store some type of ammonium nitrate. They sit in quiet fields and by riverside docks, in business districts and around the corner from schools, hospitals and day care centers. At least 60 facilities reported to state regulators as having about as much or more ammonium nitrate than the 540,000 pounds West Fertilizer Co. said it had at some point last year. The AP contacted 20 of the facilities individually to confirm the information, and three companies disputed the records. Some of the facilities stored the chemical in solid form, which is among the most dangerous.
Assad ‘confident in victory’

BAGHDAD MUNICIPALITY workers clean up while restaurant staff react after a parked car bomb exploded near the popular restaurant in the Ur neighborhood in northern Baghdad, Iraq, Thursday. A series of bomb explosions in Baghdad and the northern Iraqi city of Mosul on Thursday killed and wounded dozens in the latest eruption of violence rattling the country, officials said.
Alarm grows as Iraqi forces fail to stem violence BAGHDAD (AP) — Officials in Iraq are growing increasingly concerned over an unabated spike in violence that claimed at least another 33 lives on Thursday and is reviving fears of a return to widespread sectarian fighting. Authorities announced plans to impose a sweeping ban on many cars across the Iraqi capital starting early Friday in an apparent effort to thwart car bombings, as the United Nations envoy to Iraq warned that “systemic violence is ready to explode.” Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki, meanwhile, was shown on state television visiting security checkpoints around Baghdad the previous night as part of a three-hour inspection tour, underscoring the government’s efforts to show it is acting to curtail the bloodshed. Iraqi security forces are struggling to contain the country’s most relentless round of violence since the 2011 U.S.
military withdrawal. The rise in violence follows months of protests against the Shiite-led government by Iraq’s Sunni minority, many of whom feel they’ve been marginalized and unfairly treated since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion. Tensions escalated sharply last month after a deadly crackdown by security forces on a Sunni protest camp. Sunni militants, including al-Qaida, have long targeted Iraq’s Shiite majority and government security forces. But Sunni mosques and other targets have also been struck over the past several weeks, raising the possibility that Shiite militias are also growing more active. Several members of the security forces were killed in Thursday’s bombings. The attacks also included an assassination attempt by a suicide bomber targeting a provincial governor in the country’s Sunni-dominated west. “These daily patterns of car
bomb attacks … in Baghdad and some other cities (are) really unacceptable for the people of Iraq, who have suffered so much,” Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said Thursday. “It’s the government’s responsibility to redouble its efforts, to revise its security plans, to contain this wave, to prevent it from sliding into sectarian conflict and war,” he added. “That should not happen again.” The spike in violence, which has gained momentum since the middle of the month, is raising worries that Iraq is heading back toward the widespread sectarian bloodletting that spiked in 2006 and 2007 and pushed the country to the brink of civil war. More than 500 people have been killed in May. The month before was Iraq’s deadliest since June 2008, according to a United Nations tally that put April’s death toll at more than 700.
BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an interview broadcast Thursday that he is “confident in victory” in his country’s civil war, and he warned that Damascus would retaliate for any future Israeli airstrike on his territory. Assad also told the Lebanese TV station AlManar that Russia has fulfilled some of its weapons contracts recently, but he was vague on whether this included advanced S-300 air defense systems. The comments were in line with a forceful and confident message the regime has been sending in recent days, even as the international community attempts to launch a peace conference in Geneva, possibly next month. The strong tone coincided with recent military victories in battles with armed rebels trying to topple him. The interview was broadcast as Syria’s main political opposition group appeared to fall into growing disarray. The international community had hoped the two sides would start talks on a political transition. However, the opposition group, the Syrian National Coalition, said earlier Thursday that it would not attend a conference, linking the decision to a regime offensive on the western Syrian town of Qusair and claiming that hundreds of wounded people were trapped there. Assad, who appeared animated and gestured frequently in the TV interview, said he has been confident from the start of the conflict more than two years ago that he would be able to defeat his opponents. “Regarding my confidence about victory, had we not had this confidence, we wouldn’t have been able to fight in this battle for two years, facing an international attack,” he said.
Poll: 2 in 5 women would consider parenting solo BY JOCELYN NOVECK The Associated Press As Christy Everson was nearing age 40, she made a decision: She wanted to have a child, even though she was single and it meant doing it all alone. Her daughter, conceived via a sperm donor, is now 2 1/2 years old, and Everson hopes to have a second child. “Was it worthwhile? Well, I’m thinking of doing it again, aren’t I?” she says. Everson and women like her are part of a shift in American society. An Associated Press-WE tv poll of people under 50 found that more than 2 in 5 unmarried women without children — or 42 percent — would consider having a child on their own without a partner, including more than a third, or 37 percent, who would consider adopting solo. The poll, which addressed a broad range of issues on Amer-
ica’s changing family structures, dovetails with a recent report by the U.S. Census Bureau that single motherhood is on the rise: It found that of 4.1 million women who’d given birth in 2011, 36 percent were unmarried at the time of the survey, an increase from 31 percent in 2005. And among mothers 20-24, the percentage was 62 percent, or six in 10 mothers. The AP-WE tv poll also found that few Americans think the growing variety of family arrangements is bad for society. However, many have some qualms about single mothers, with some two-thirds — or 64 percent — saying single women having children without a partner is a bad thing for society. More men — 68 percent — felt that way, compared to 59 percent of women. The survey found broad gender gaps in opinion on
many issues related to how and when to have children. One example: At a time when the can-you-have-it-all debate rages for working mothers, women were more apt than men to say having children has negatively impacted their career. And this was true especially among mothers who waited until age 30 or older to have children. Fully 47 percent of those mothers said having a child had a negative impact on their careers. Of women overall, 32 percent of mothers reported a negative effect, compared with 10 percent of men. For Everson, who lives in a suburb of Minneapolis and is now 44, being the only parent means daily responsibilities that naturally suck up some of the time she used to spend on her career as a financial consultant. “To be honest about it, it’s
hard to be a rock star” when parenting a baby, she says. But she sees it as more of a temporary career setback, and feels she’s already getting back on track with her toddler now over age 2. Soon, she says, “I’ll be getting back on my Agame.” For Joyce Chen, a hospital occupational therapist in San Francisco, it’s a question of what kind of career she wants to have. Chen, 41 and also a single mother, is happy to have work that she not only enjoys, but that she can balance easily with caring for her 10-yearold daughter. “I’ve been blessed,” she says. “I have a decent income. I don’t feel like I need to climb the ladder. I enjoy what I do, but I can leave it at the end of the day and not think about it.” Chen also credits a strong community of friends from church for helping make her family work.

Dear Heloise: Can you please reprint your hints on programming ICE (In Case of E m e rgency) numb e r s i n t o Hints y o u r from c e l l phone? Heloise — Hal Heloise Cruse in Tennessee I sure can! There are two ways that are recommended by experts to list emergency numbers on your phone. First, you can put a period (.) or the letter “A” before the emergency contacts so that they are listed at the top of your contacts list. Second, you should list the contact as “ICE-Mom,” or “ICE- Husband,” etc. Most emergency technicians and hospital personnel will look under the letter “I” for contact numbers. Hopefully, this information will never be needed, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. — Heloise TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: I tend to overpack when traveling, and my clean and dirty clothes were getting mixed together. I would get home and not remember which clothes were clean and which were dirty. I now take a plastic garbage bag with me. I place the dirty clothes in the bag once worn. Now they stay separate in my luggage, and I know which are clean. — Debbie in Florida Good hint, and if you forget the plastic trash bag, you can use the plastic laundry bag provided by the hotel. — Heloise PAPERLESS STATEMENTS Dear Heloise: Many people use online banking and receive paperless billing statements. Here is a hint for them. Before closing out any account, go online and print out or save statements to your computer. Once you close the account, you may no longer have access to those statements, and you may need them for future reference. This also could be helpful for retirement accounts, etc. — A Reader in Kentucky MICROCHIP UPDATE Dear Heloise: Just a friendly reminder to all of your readers who are pet owners: If you move, make sure to notify the microchip company and veterinarian of your new information. If your pet gets lost and is picked up, having a microchip isn’t going to help if the contact information listed isn’t correct. A quick phone call is all it takes. — R.R., via email

Election of officers is planned for the August meeting. Henman reported that the organization has placed two dogs and a cat in “foster care,” with people willing to care for them until permanent homes can be found. More foster
homes are needed, Henman said. She could not provide information about how many or what kind of animals are awaiting homes or where those animals are housed now. According to Henman, members of the Shelby County society will travel soon to attend a meeting of the Darke County Humane Society, whose president, Judy Francis, has offered to help the local group as it continues its reorganization efforts.
Sidney teens in Project SEARCH TROY — Four Sidney participants of Upper Valley Medical Center’s Project SEARCH were acknowledged during the 2012-13 Project SEARCH Celebration on May 17 at the facility. Project SEARCH is a high school transition program designed to provide training and education on the road to employment for individuals with disabilities. Local participants were Brian Gold, Ashley Shoffner and Ashley
Weber, all students at Sidney High School, and Taylor Stewart, a student at Fairlawn. Local Project SEARCH partners, in addition to UVMC, include the Upper Valley Career Center in Piqua, the Board of Developmental Disabilities in Miami and Shelby counties, Capabilities Inc. and the state Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation. The goal of the ninemonth program is to help each of the interns
become a more independent person and ready to compete in the job market, said Patti Moore, Upper Valley Project SEARCH coordinator. Moore said the interns are not actual employees, but are “strictly students in training” during the program, with the vision of tapping into a career path. Each student deferred receiving a high school diploma to participate in the program, Moore said.

CHRISTY: Dr. Gary Sibbald, a member of the Canadian Dermatology Association, says that there is no such thing as a healthy suntan. He believes that even the slightest tan is actually unhealthy and represents skin damage that can lead to wrinkles, furrows, blotches, lesions and even skin cancers. But for those who choose to ignore this advice, proper precautions can make the skin damage less severe. When outdoors, always wear a proper sunscreen, and understand that the sun’s rays are most damaging from noon to 4 p.m. Take advantage of your knowledge of the sun and its effects on the skin.

Red Cross offers Tornado App The American Red Cross is urging residents in the northern Miami Valley area to make sure households, schools and business are prepared for possible severe weather, including rain, strong winds and possible tornados. “Listen to weather alerts and designate a safe space where people can gather for the duration of the storm,” said R. Scott Miller, executive director. “The area should be a basement, storm cellar or an interior room on the lowest floor away from windows.” The American Red Cross Tornado App is available in English or Spanish and gives iPhone, iPad and Android smart phone and tablet users instant access to local and real-time information, so they know what to do before, during and after a tornado. The free app includes a high-pitched siren and “tornado warning!” alert that signals when a NOAA tornado warning has been issued. This feature allows users to make critical decisions and to take actions to help keep themselves and their loved ones safe even in the middle of the night. An “all clear!” alert lets users know when a tornado warning has expired or has been canceled. Other features of the app include: • Location-based NOAA tornado, severe thunderstorm and flood watch and warning alerts; • One touch “I’m safe” messaging that allows users to broadcast reassurance to family and friends via social media outlets that they are out of harm’s way; • Preloaded content that gives users instant access to critical action steps, even without mobile connectivity; • Toolkit with flashlight, strobe light and audible alarm; and • Locations of open Red Cross shelters. “If a tornado is threatening your area, listen for alerts and warnings, grab your emergency preparedness kit and head to your designated safe area,” Miller added. “Be prepared to evacuate if necessary.” The Tornado App, along with other apps, can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for Android by searching for American Red Cross or by going to redcross.org/mobileapps. People can go to redcross.org/tornado for more safety tips.

City pool opens Saturday Admission prices remain same as last year BY TOM MILLHOUSE email@example.com The preseason maintenance is finished and the pool has been filled for a couple of weeks to allow the water to warm up, so everything is in place for Saturday’s opening of the Sidney Municipal Pool. The pool, which is located in Tawawa Park, will be open through Aug. 18. The hours are 1 to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Sunday. Thanks to donations by Dr. Lisa Alvetro and Cargill Inc., the big news at the pool this summer is free swimming lessons are back, according to Duane Gaier, Sidney parks director. “We’re excited that the swimming lessons are back this year,” said Gaier. He explained that the lessons had to be dropped in 2009 because of a budget crunch. The lessons will be offered in two sessions — July 8-12 and July 15-19.

The pool will open for the season Saturday. made to boost pool attendance in order to increase revenues. The city had a booth at the Sidney-Shelby County Health Awareness Fair to help promote the pool. Other promotional efforts have included placing a large banner at the corner of Fourth Avenue and Michigan Street and distribution of pool brochures through local schools. Gaier said it also is hoped that by holding down admission fees, more people will use the pool this year. “We’re trying to get the revenue back up where it belongs,” Gaier said. Sidney City Council voted
earlier this year to keep the pool prices the same this year as in 2012. The season ticket prices are students, $46; adults, $66; family of four, $110 (and $11.50 for each additional member); and $45 for senior citizens over 63. Replacement tickets cost $5.50. Daily admission prices are preschool, $2; students (elementary to high school), $3.25; adults out of school, $3.75; and senior adults, $2.75. The pool may be rented at a charge of $225 per hour for up to two hours by contacting the city recreation department at 4988155.
Sidney’s pool fees compare favorably to those charged by other area communities. “We are well below average,” Gaier said. Special events are scheduled periodically at the pool this summer and the facility may be rented for parties and special events by contacting the recreation department. The pool is staffed by manager Charlie Gase and his assistant, Maria Hughes. A former lifeguard, this is Hughes’ first year as assistant manager. The staff also includes of 14 full-time lifeguards, 12 part-time lifeguards and four cashiers.

coronary artery disease or diabetes changes the way you think about your body. In addition, you started taking six or seven medications, made a big change in your diet and lost more than 15 percent of your body weight. Normally, when I see people who have increased their physical activity and made healthy changes in diet leading to the kind of weight loss you have experienced, I hear how much more energy they have and how much better they feel. The fact that you are fatigued and feel like you are getting recurrent infections leads me to be pretty confident there is something else going on. Unfortunately, the hard part is finding out what. A low
thyroid state (hypothyroidism) is a common cause of low energy and cold intolerance, so that needs to be checked right away. Medication side effects are possible, as well as more esoteric considerations. I am also concerned that your depression might not be entirely treated either.

DEAR ABBY: My sisters and I look out for our “Aunt Lil,” who is in her late 70s and never had children. Physically and mentally she’s fine right now. She quit driving a few years ago, but that had more to do with the price of gas than her driving ability. We run errands for her, take her to appointments, etc. Our question: For most of her life, Aunt Lil has kept up a steady correspondence with many people all over the
world. When I say she has pen pals everywhere, I’m not exaggerating. When the time comes and she is gone, how should we notify her friends? I think a simple form letter would be fine, but my sisters think each person should be notified individually, either with a phone call or a personal letter. Abby, there are 100 people she writes to and those are just the ones we’re aware of! Your thoughts would be appreciated. — AUNT LIL’S GIRLS DEAR GIRLS: Considering that people live longer these days, I wouldn’t write off Aunt Lil too quickly. Because she still has all her faculties, ask HER how she wants it handled. She may prefer to write her own farewell note to be mailed after her death. (“By the time this reaches you, I will have gone to that great stationery store in the sky …”)

Paul Leonard described the Sidney-Interstate 75 corridor area as “very vibrant” when he spoke at a special legislative luncheon of the SidneyShelby County Chamber of Commerce Friday afternoon at the Sidney Holiday Inn. Leonard, who delivered about 10 minutes of his speech in the dark as the result of a power failure, gave a presentation entitled, “Building On Ohio’s New Economy.” He complimented the local area for reducing double-digit inflation to single digits and for creating a diversified economic base. Leonard, who served as mayor of the city of Dayton from 1981-86, said these are challenging times in the state’s economic history. The “good news story” the state is trying to tell is that there are now five million people working in Ohio, a record number, he said. ——— MIDDLETOWN — The Sidney High Lady Jackets don’t have to wonder what it would be like anymore.

FAMILY MEMBERS of Officer Jason Ellis accepted condolences from law enforcement officers during the funeral service for the fallen officer, Thursday at Parkway Baptist Church in Bardstown, Ky. Ellis was killed in the line of duty Saturday. service, two helicopters flew overhead and the bagpipe player played “Amazing Grace.” At the morning service at Parkway Baptist Church in Bardstown, Police Chief Rick McCubbin told mourners Ellis was a fun-loving jokester who dressed as an elf at a town Christmas party, and he was proud of his work taking drugs off the streets with Figo. McCubbin said Ellis “paid the ultimate sacrifice doing what he loved, being a police officer.” He
called Ellis and Figo “true partners.” Ellis was “gunned down in a senseless act of cowardice and you just want to cry out, ‘Why?’” Snook said at the funeral service. Later, as the funeral procession inched slowly toward the cemetery 18 miles away, young and old stood on the roadside in this town of 12,000 and watched. Factories, office buildings and offices emptied as people lined the streets, many clutching American flags or holding
their hands on their hearts. Others held signs thanking Ellis for his service. A giant American flag hung between two fire-truck ladders in front of the police department. Outside the courthouse stood three judges in black robes. Outside the police station in Bardstown, about 40 miles southeast of Louisville, a makeshift memorial featuring flags, candles, flowers and baseballs sat in front of a police cruiser signed with messages.

Memory / Thank You
The family of Ivan Michael
wish to express our sincere thanks for the outpouring of love, honor and respect shown during the loss of our loved one. Your kindness shown through cards, flowers, food, gifts and help in other ways are greatly appreciated! All these expressions of love conveyed how much Ivan was loved by the many people whose lives he touched. He was a great husband, father, and grandfather. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. A special thanks to Adams Funeral Home and Pastor John Geissler.
BARDSTOWN, Ky. (AP) — An emotional funeral for a Bardstown police officer shot to death on a highway exit ramp ended Thursday with his fellow officers placing white flowers on his casket and saluting, one by one. Hundreds of police officers from Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana, emergency workers and others attended services for 33year-old Jason Ellis, a K-9 officer who was on the drug task force. His canine partner, Figo, stood beside his casket at Highview Cemetery in Chaplin. He has been retired and given to Ellis’ widow, Amy, and his two sons, ages 6 and 7. “Heaven is a real place. Jason is there,” said the Rev. Brent Snook of First Baptist Church of Glen Este, in Batavia, Ohio, who had been Ellis’ childhood pastor. The former minor league baseball player turned lawman was hit with multiple shotgun blasts early Saturday after he got out his cruiser to pick up debris at a ramp off the Bluegrass Parkway in Nelson County, according to Kentucky State Police. The investigation is continuing. Ellis’ flag-draped coffin was pulled on a caisson by one white horse. It was accompanied by five officers on horseback and one officer leading a riderless horse. A bagpipe and drummer played. At the end of the burial

Raiders to play for state berth Edge Arcanum 3-1 in regional semifinals, play Crestview today BY ROB KISER Civitas Media SPRINGFIELD — You couldn’t blame Russia baseball coach Rick Gold for thinking fate is smiling on the Raiders. “We have had a lot of good things happen this year,” Gold said after a 3-1 win over Arcanum in the Division IV Regional semifinal at Carleton Davidson Stadium. Russia will play Convoy Crestview, a 3-2 winner over Tri-County North in the first game Thursday, in the regional final at 5 p.m. today. The way the Raiders got there was another prime example of what Gold was talking about. The game was tied 11 in the Russia sixth inning and Arcanum relief pitcher Grady Garno had retired the first two batters in the inning. The Raiders did not have a hit after Bailey Francis’ double in the fourth inning, but they weren’t going to need it. Pitcher Treg Francis started things with a walk. “To be honest, we were just trying to find a way to get on,” Gold said. “Treg gets the walk, then gets to second on a pitch in the dirt.” Pinch-hitter Andrew Daniel and DH Bryan Drees drew walks and suddenly the bases were loaded. “Andrew has been a monster pinch-hitter for us all season,” Gold said. “He was able to get a walk and so was Bryan).” That’s when both coaches went looking for some magic and only Russia had the “Gold”en touch. Arcanum brought Austin Ripple in to pitch
and Gold countered with pinch-hitter Brandon Barlage. “It is a position everyone dreams of being in,” Barlage said. “I was just looking for a way to get on.” It only took one pitch. He was plunked on Ripple’s first pitch, scoring Francis from third with what would be the winning run. “I really didn’t know what to think,” Barlage said when he saw the pitch coming at him. “It was exciting to be able to get the run in.” Trevor Sherman then worked a full-count, before fouling off several pitches and drawing a walk to score a second run without a Russia hit in the inning. “Four walks and a hit batter,” Gold said. “That’s pretty amazing.” And it was all Francis would need. He finished off a five-hit, 96-pitch masterpiece with two fly balls to Bryan Drees in right after allowing a one-out single to Jacob Weaver. He struck out two and walked two. Russia’s line of three hits, two errors and eight left on base doesn’t sound like a winning combination. “First, Treg just pitched an amazing game,” Gold said. “He was a little out of rhythm and he didn’t get much help from our defense. To keep Arcanum from scoring in the first three innings and only give up one run in the fourth, we were pretty fortunate. Treg made some good pitches and Arcanum hit some balls right at us.” Arcanum had second and third with one-out in the second and Francis got a strikeout and

slow roller back to him to end the threat. In the third Arcanum had a runner on third with one out and Francis got a line drive to first baseman Isaiah Counts and a ground out to shortstop Cole McEldowney to end it. “I was a little out of rhythm at the start,” Francis said. “I knew I was going to have to slam the door if we wanted to win.” Russia had taken a 10 lead in the first when Sherman walked, McEldowney sacrificed him to second, he moved to third on a balk and scored on Bailey Francis’ fielder’s choice. Arcanum tied it in the fourth when Garno led off with a triple and Donnie Kress singled him in. An error put runners on first and second with no outs, but Counts fielded an attempted sacrifice and fired a throw to Austin Gariety at third for a force out.

Schwartzel leads Memorial DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Charl Schwartzel made sure one hole didn’t ruin an entire round Thursday in the Memorial. Schwartzel hit the ball so consistently well at Muirfield Village that the former Masters champion twice had stretches of four straight birdies. And when he made a double bogey with an 8-iron in hand and his ball on a tee toward the end of the round, he got rid of that bad taste with one last birdie for a 7-under 65. Schwartzel had a oneshot lead over Scott Piercy, who went from smashing it to playing it safe, and he was six shots clear of five-time winner Tiger Woods. Woods hit the ball well enough to be much closer, though he missed too many birdie chances and didn’t make up any ground on the par 5s. “That’s probably the highest score I could have shot,” Woods said after his 1-under 71. Woods was one shot worse than 53-year-old Fred Couples, the Presidents Cup captain at Muirfield Village this fall, and one shot better than 14-year-old Guan Tianlang, who has played more PGA Tour events than Woods over the last two months.

CHARL SCHWARTZEL, of South Africa, tees off the fourth hole during the first round of the Memorial golf tournament Thursday in Dublin, Ohio. Rory McIlroy, meanwhile, might be headed for another short week at the tournament Jack Nicklaus built. After opening with a birdie, McIlroy didn’t putt nearly well enough to atone for some loose shots. McIlroy four-putted the par-3 12th for a double bogey, had a threeputt bogey on No. 7 and ended his round by missing a 4-foot birdie putt. That gave him a 78 “I don’t really have many explanations for this,” McIlroy said. Schwartzel played in the morning, when the slick greens were still smooth, and he made 10 birdies in his round.
Most of them were in the 10-foot range, though he picked up a bonus with a 25-foot putt down a slight ridge on the 16th. As well as he played, he thought a great round might turn into just a good one with one swing. His 8-iron on the par3 eighth hole drifted right and caught the downward slope of a bunker. The South African tried to put a little more spin on the difficult shot and wound up sending it over the green. He chipped past the hole to about 8 feet and missed that to take double bogey. What saved him was a 12-foot birdie putt
down the hill on his final hole, allowing him to leave the course with a smile. That’s not to suggest that if he had made par on the last hole he would have been ready to retire from the game. “It would still be OK,” Schwartzel said. “It’s really when you’ve played that well and you’re thinking you get these few rounds a year where you really strike it well and you’re making lots of birdies and you walk off with your 8, 9 under. And today was one of those where I really did flush it. And you’re think maybe another birdie, and then get knocked back with a little 8-iron
making double.” Woods, trying to win five times before the U.S. Open for the first time in his PGA Tour career, looked as though he might get much closer to the lead despite having to lay up on both par 5s on the front nine and failing to make birdie. He hit 5-wood into about 25 feet for a twoputt birdie on the par-5 11th, and then spent the last few hours giving away shots. He made bogey from the back bunker on the par-3 12th, missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the 13th, and chopped up the par-5 15th despite getting a break off the tee when his ball hit a tree and went back into the fairway. He still had to lay up, but a simple wedge went some 40 feet long to the back collar, and Woods had to make a 5-foot putt just to save bogey. “Didn’t capitalize on a few opportunities I had,” Woods said. “Short irons, I didn’t hit them close enough. All in all, it was a pretty high score.” It wasn’t nearly as high as what Nick Watney (82) and Nicolas Colsaerts (80) had on their cards. Woods plays in the morning for the second round and should be able to at least get closer to the top going into the weekend.
Unbeaten Covington beats Marion TIPP CITY — Marion Local was hoping to pull off the biggest upset of the season Thursday in the Division IV Regional softball semifinals at Tipp City. But the Lady Flyers were run-ruled by No. 1ranked and unbeaten Covington, 10-0, to end the season with a final 14-15 record. Covington will take on Triad Saturday at noon for the right to advance to the state tournament. Covington is now 29-0 on the year. Marion was unable to muster a hit in the sixinning game, Casey Yingst throwing a nohitter, with eight strikeouts and three walks. The game was scoreless until the third, when Covington struck for three runs. The Lady Buccs added three more an inning later, and four more over the final two innings. Covington rapped out 12 hits in the game, three by catcher Connie Shaffer. Jessie Shilt, Heidi Snipes and Brittanie Flora all had two hits apiece for Covington.

PORTS IN BRIEF Browns’ RB Richardson SGoosen out of U.S. Open says he’s not injury prone BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Not quite into his second NFL season, Browns running back Trent Richardson has already undergone knee surgery, broken some ribs, hurt his ankle and strained a muscle in his shin. He’s been battered and bruised, but Richardson is confident he’ll be able to stay on the field this year and the remainder of his career. Don’t you dare put a label on him. “Injury prone,” he said, “is not going to be me.” Richardson missed practice on Thursday with a strain in his lower right leg he sustained while running last week. Although the injury isn’t believed to be serious, the Browns are being extra careful with the former firstround pick, who may sit out next week’s minicamp as well. “It ain’t no biggie,” Richardson said. “It ain’t nothing to worry about. I could be out there but they want to be cautious about it and make sure I’m right for training camp.” As his teammates went through the final session of organized team activities under first-year coach Rob Chudzinski, Richardson worked off to the side on his conditioning. When he was finished and the Browns began to scrimmage, all Richardson could do was watch. And that’s when the real pain kicked in. “It’s terrible, man” he said. “But I know in my mind that it’s not going to be near like last year, being hurt and injured. It’s hard to just watch. I do want to be out there. I tell coach every day that I can go. I put my helmet on or something, and we laugh. I know he means

CLEVELAND BROWNS’ Trent Richardson works on conditioning during practice at the team’s training camp Thursday in Berea. good about sitting me out for right now.” slowed Injuries Richardson during a productive rookie season when he showed flashes of one day becoming a major star — if he isn’t one already. He missed the exhibition season recovering from an arthroscopic procedure on his knee, and then played the final 10 games with “two or three” broken ribs, an agonizing injury that would have sidelined most players. Still, the muscular 5230-pounder foot-9, managed to rush for 950 yards with 11 touchdowns and added 367 receiving yards. Chudzinski is confident Richardson can stay healthy and insists he isn’t worried by his brief history of injuries. “I’m not concerned,” he said. “He’s healthy from all the things from the past season and it’s something we’re working through. He’ll be fine.” Chudzinski will hold off until next week before deciding whether Richardson will participate fully in the minicamp (June 4-6). As tempting as it might be to see what Richardson
can do in Cleveland’s new offensive system, Chudzinski won’t take any chances. The Browns’ offense is designed to challenge teams vertically with a down-field passing attack, but quarterback Brandon Weeden knows that a sound running game will keep defenses honest. And a back like Richardson — when healthy — makes a world of difference. “It’s huge,” Weeden said. “We need Trent back and that’s why him taking some time off now and getting 100 percent is a good idea. I told him, ‘We need you in training camp and ready for Week 1.’ He’s going to make this offense better.” Richardson averaged around 18 carries per game last season, but he’s sure he will get the ball more in new coordinator Norv Turner’s scheme. He has spoken to Emmitt Smith — they went to the same high school — and LaDainian Tomlinson, who both flourished with Turner calling the shots. “Norv, he’s talked to me about getting the ball a lot and making sure I’m the bell cow and
working hard,” Richardson said. “I tell him I’m going to be in the best shape I can be to make sure I can lead this team or put this team on my back every day.” Before training camp, Richardson intends to visit famed orthopedist Dr. James Andrews at his clinic in Pensacola, Fla. Richardson typically sees Andrews for checkups on previous injuries. Long before he was drafted, Richardson said his goal was to make the Hall of Fame and follow in Smith’s footsteps. On Wednesday, legendary running back Jim Brown, who has returned to the Browns as a special adviser, said the only thing that can stop Richardson from reaching his goals are injuries. Richardson disagreed. “I say the only thing that can keep me from achieving my goals is me,” he said. NOTES: Weeden spent last week in Moore, Okla., recently devastated by a deadly tornado. Weeden said his brotherin-law’s home there sustained heavy damage and the destruction was immense. “I watched all the coverage leading up to it and it was worse than I imagined,” he said. “But there’s a lot of people giving back, which is the right thing.” ... Turner yelled loudly at Weeden and backup QB Jason Campbell following mistakes. The fiery Turner cuts loose on any player who blows an assignment. “They gave Norv that double shot of espresso this morning instead of the decaf with two sugars and two creams,” cracked WR Greg Little. “He knows how to stay on top of you, but knows how to do it. He can be funny at times about it, but he’s definitely a perfectionist.”
ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) — Two-time champion Retief Goosen has withdrawn from the U.S. Open because of a back injury. The U.S. Golf Association said Thursday that the 44-year-old South African player, the tournament winner in 2001 and 2004, pulled out because of the injury that also forced him to withdraw from the Wells Fargo Championship and The Players Championship. Goosen's spot in the June 13-16 event at Merion Golf Club will be added to the qualifying positions available at the 11 sectional qualifying sites June 3.
Hildebrand, Panther part INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Panther Racing parted ways with JR Hildebrand on Thursday after his third major mistake since joining the team in 2011. The team called it a “mutual agreement” to terminate Hildrebrand's contract, which ran through the 2013 season. Hildebrand, the 2009 Indy Lights champion, made 37 starts in the No. 4 National Guard/Panther Racing Chevrolet. Ryan Briscoe will drive the car this Hildebrand weekend in the two races in Detroit. Hildebrand nearly won the Indianapolis 500 in 2011, but crashed in the final turn and wound up second behind Dan Wheldon. In this year's opener, he wrecked Will Power under caution at St. Petersburg and said he was distracted as he talked with his team and adjusted equipment in the car. In Sunday’s Indy 500, he lost control in Turn 1 and slid into the outside wall — the first wreck of the race.
Spurrier a ‘Great Floridian’ COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Steve Spurrier is now officially known as a “Great Floridian.” South Carolina’s football coach was presented with the “Great Floridian” award by Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Thursday in Gainesville, Fla. Spurrier was honored for his time as a student and coach at the University of Florida. He won the 1966 Heisman Trophy while playing quarterback for the Gators, and returned in 1990 as head coach and led Florida to the 1996 national championship. Scott said Spurrier was a role model for studentathletes while in college and his coaching innovations changed the way Southern football is played.
New hitting coach: Brett ST. LOUIS (AP) — George Brett is giving coaching a month. The greatest player in Kansas City Royals history isn't sure teaching is his forte and doesn't know if players will listen. Before hustling to the batting cage to start his job and greet well-wishers that included his former manager Whitey Herzog, the team's high profile interim batting coach certainly gave a fiery acceptance speech. "I'm scared to death right now, to be honest with you," Brett said Thursday night. "But I'm looking forward to the challenge."

• At the end of May in 2012 — about a third of the way into the season — the postseason picture looked like this: Cleveland at Tampa Bay with the winner moving on to play Texas, and the White Sox facing Baltimore in the other ALDS series. In the National League, Miami would face the Mets (that’s funny) in an elimination game to see who would meet the Dodgers. Cincinnati and Washington would meet in the NLDS as well. • At the beginning of play on Memorial Day this season, fans all over Los Angeles and Orange County must be disappointed. Neither the Dodgers nor the Angels — two teams expected to contend this season — are currently close to a playoff position. The Washington Nationals, a team that many expected to be a World Series contender, have been disappointing as well. Texas currently has the best record in the American League and would take on the winner of Cleveland and Boston in the ALDS. Detroit and New York would also meet in the Division Series. It’s a little more complicated in the National League. San Francisco and Arizona would play a winner-take-all game to determine the NL West champion, with the winner meeting Atlanta in the NLDS. Cincinnati would travel to Pittsburgh for the Wild Card game with St. Louis awaiting the winner.
• How tempting is it to intentionally pass Miguel Cabrera, the best hitter in the game right now? And how important is it for Miggy to have protection in the Detroit lineup? Since joining the Tigers last season, Prince Fielder is batting .500 (8-for-16) with 11 RBIs following an intentional walk to Cabrera.
Mike Trout, Los Angeles Last season when Trout came onto the scene, the Angels began playing much better. Now, with Trout hitting a hot streak, the Angels are playing their best ball of the season. Last week, Trout hit for the cycle on Monday, scored two runs in each of five games, scored 10 runs and seven RBIs in six games while batting .462. Oh yeah, he also stole four bags.
Anibal Sanchez, Detroit The Tigers’ righthander came within two outs of twirling the second no-hitter of his career. Joe Mauer of the Twins lined a sharp single up the middle for Minnesota’s lone hit. Sanchez walked just three and struck out 12. Detroit is just 5-5 in his 10 starts, but has failed to score three runs in any of those losses.
Andrew McCutchen, Pittsburgh The Pirates’ fleet center fielder batted .400 last week as he and the Bucs are heating up this month. He had four multi-hit games with a home run, four runs and four RBIs. He also stole fives bases.
Patrick Corbin, Arizona Last week the young lefthander won both of his starts, defeating division rivals Colorado and San Diego. He went the distance against the Rockies allowing just three hits and a walk. He is now 8-0 with a 1.71 ERA on the season and the Diamondbacks have won all 10 of his starts.
Michael Wacha, SP, St. Louis After just 21 innings in 2012 — his first professional season — the Cardinals promoted Wacha to Triple-A Memphis where he has thrived. Opponents are batting just .187 and he has not given up three earned runs in any of his nine starts.
June 1, 1975 Nolan Ryan of the California Angels stymies the Baltimore Orioles for the fourth no-hitter of his career. The Angels’ lineup produces nine hits, but manages just one run, which comes in the third inning. Ryan issues four free passes and strikes out nine, improving his record to 9-3 on the season. May 25, 1989 In order to receive something of value for Mark Langston, who is facing free agency at the end of the season, the Seattle Mariners trade their ace to the Montreal Expos for Brian Holman, Gene Harris and Randy Johnson. Langston would go 12-9 with a 2.39 ERA for the Expos in 1989 and sign with the California Angels in November.

We’ve Got Next Only hard-core baseball junkies are familiar with these names now, but in a few years all baseball fans will recognize these stars. Here’s a brief look at stars of the future who have yet to make their debuts in the major leagues. Last week, we featured the position players behind the pitchers. This week, we present the pitchers’ and catchers’ report. PITCHERS While all these future stars on the mound are still considered starters, experience tells us that a few will follow the paths of Jonathan Papelbon et al and close games at the major league level rather than start them. Taijuan Walker, Seattle With above-average fastball, curve and change, Walker is clearly a future starter, but he must harness control issues. Through 10 starts at Double-A Jackson, opponents are batting just .190, but he has issued 27 walks in 59 innings. Zack Wheeler, New York Mets Acquired from the Giants for Carlos Beltran, the righthander possesses a fastball that nears triple digits. Fine-tuning his command and breaking pitches will get him to the majors, and that isn’t far away. In nine starts and 48.1 innings at Triple-A Las Vegas, he has 49 whiffs and allowed only 45 hits. Gerrit Cole, Pittsburgh Last season, his first in pro ball, he progressed from High-A to Triple-A where he made one start. In 10 starts at TripleA this season, opponents are hitting just .207. Cole owns a major-league ready fastball and curve. He’ll be in Pittsburgh by August. Jameson Taillon, Pittsburgh Pitching at Double-A this season, Taillon’s fastball will reach the upper 90s.
57 .000 13 5 $29,303 $3,440,000
He has 63 punchouts in 55.2 innings this season with a 2.19 ERA. As soon as he develops other pitches, he’ll join the Pirates’ rotation, which should be in 2014. Danny Hultzen, Seattle The second-best left-handed prospect shined in his first four starts at Triple-A but hasn’t pitched since mid-April due to a rotator cuff problem. Red flag. Archie Bradley, Arizona After five tremendous starts at Single-A, Bradley has been even better at Double-A this season with a 0.69 ERA in five outings. He turns 21 in August and is on a fast track to the big leagues, although the Diamondbacks are adamant about not rushing him.
Gerrit Cole (left) could be the Pirates’ next ace and is likely to join the club later this summer.
Mike Zunino, in the Mariners’ organization, is destined to be an All-Star behind the plate in Seattle. Chris Archer, Tampa Bay With a fastball that reaches 98 mastered the nuances behind the plate, and a tight slider, Archer could end up Mike Zunino, Seattle in the bullpen.

Can you name the only player in history with three walk-off hits in the postseason?
RBIs for Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers in his first 48 games. The only player with more than 162 RBIs in a 162-game season is Manny Ramirez of the Cleveland Indians in 1999. Batting average of left-handed hitters in 12 at-bats off Pittsburgh’s Francisco Liriano through his first three starts of the season. The lefthander began the season with five rehab starts in the minor leagues. Consecutive wins by the St. Louis Cardinals on May 21. The last time the Redbirds lost on that date was in 1998. In that game, Philadelphia manager Terry Francona called on current Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro to pinch-hit. Consecutive road games in which the Orioles’ Manny Machado had three hits. The young third baseman is batting .363 in 27 games away from home this season. Average major league salary in 1970. Average major league salary in 2012.
