US economy adds 195K jobs Unemployment stays at 7.6% nationwide BY CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER Associated Press

many more in April and May than previously thought. The unemployment rate remained 7.6 percent in June because more people started looking for jobs — a healthy sign — and some didn’t find them. The government doesn’t count people as unemployed unless they’re looking for work. The Labor Department’s report Friday pointed to a U.S. job market that’s showing surprising resilience in the face of tax increases, federal

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. employers are sending a message of confidence in the economy — hiring more workers, raising pay and making the job market appear strong enough for the Federal Reserve to slow its bond purchases as early as September. The economy gained a robust 195,000 jobs in June and

spending cuts and economic weakness overseas. Employers have added an average 202,000 jobs for the past six months, up from 180,000 in the previous six. The job growth is being fueled in part by consumer spending and the housing recovery. Consumer confidence has reached a 5 year high and is helping drive up sales of homes and cars. Hiring was especially strong in June among retailers, hotels,

restaurants, construction companies and financial services firms. “The numbers that we’re seeing are more sustainable than we thought,” said Paul Edelstein, U.S. economist at IHS Global Insight, a forecasting firm. “We’re seeing better job numbers, the stock market is increasing and home prices are rising.” Average pay also rose sharply last month.

US touts democracy as Egyptian military takes over BY JOSH LEDERMAN Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is turning to top officials to tout democracy, political transparency and peaceful protest for Egypt, a message that took on a hollow tone as the Egyptian military installed a new leader for the country and began rounding up its ousted president and his supporters. Tens of thousands of supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi marched in Cairo on Friday, and gunfire and stone-throwing marked clashes taking place after dark. Across Egypt, at least 30 people were reported killed and more than 200 wounded. In Washington, the State Department condemned the violence and called on all Egyptian leaders to condemn the use of force and to prevent further violence among their supporters. “The voices of all who are protesting peacefully must be heard - including those who welcomed the events of earlier this week and those who supported President Morsi,”

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement. “The Egyptian people must come together to resolve their differences peacefully, without recourse to violence or the use of force.” Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on Friday called Israel’s military chief, Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz, for a second time in as many days. The Pentagon said Dempsey had spoken earlier with Lt. Gen. Sedki Sobhi, the chief of staff of Egypt’s military, although the Pentagon wouldn’t disclose details about any of the calls. High-level diplomacy consultations took place Thursday when Secretary of State John Kerry, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and national security adviser Susan Rice briefed President Barack Obama on their calls to counterparts in Egypt, Israel, Turkey and other U.S. partners in the region. That round of calls conveyed “the importance of a quick and responsible return of full authority to a democratically elected civilian gov-

ernment as soon as possible,” Bernadette Meehan, a spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council, said at the time. The U.S. officials also pushed for what Meehan called “a transparent political process that is inclusive of all parties and groups” and urged all parties to avoid violence, she said in a statement. Behind the scenes, the U.S. was signaling to Egypt and its allies that it accepts the military’s decision to depose Morsi, and was hoping that what fills the vacuum of power would be more favorable to U.S. interests and values than Morsi’s Islamist government. But those hopes were tempered by very real concerns that a newly emboldened military would deal violently with the Muslim Brotherhood, sending Egyptian society further into chaos and making reconciliation more difficult. The Obama administration’s stance, which carefully avoided the legal implications of calling the military’s intervention a coup, won someSee EGYPT/Page 3

MIAMI (AP) — Dan Lopez rarely gets sick and hasn’t been to a doctor in 10 years, so buying health insurance feels like a waste of money. Even after the federal health overhaul takes full effect next year, the 24-year-old said he will probably decide to pay the $100 penalty for those who skirt the law’s requirement that all Americans purchase coverage. “I don’t feel I should pay for something I don’t use,” said the Milwaukee resident, who makes about $48,000 a year working two part-time jobs. Because he makes too much to qualify for government subsidies, Lopez would pay a premium of about $3,000 a year if he chose to buy health insurance. “I shouldn’t be penalized for having good health,” he said. Persuading young, healthy adults such as Lopez to buy insurance under the Affordable Care Act is becoming a major concern for insurance companies as they scramble to comply with the law, which prohibits them from denying coverage because of pre-existing conditions and limits what they can charge to older policy holders. Experts warn a lot of these so-called “young invincibles” could opt to pay the fine instead of spending hundreds or thousands of dollars each year on insurance premiums. If enough young adults avoid the new insurance marketplace, it could throw off the entire equilibrium of the Affordable Care Act. Insurers are betting on the business of that group to offset the higher costs they will incur for older, sicker beneficiaries. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that about six million people of various ages will pay the tax penalty for not having insurance in 2014, the first See HEALTH/Page 5

ceeded inflation this year after barely keeping pace since the Great Recession ended four years ago. Average hourly pay rose 10 cents in June to $24.01. Over the past 12 months, it’s risen 2.2 percent. Over the same period, consumer prices have increased 1.4 percent. Stocks closed sharply higher Friday. The Dow Jones industrial average surged 147 points, nearly 1 percent. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note jumped from 2.56 percent to 2.73 percent, its highest level since August 2011. That’s a sign that investors think the economy is improving. Among the employers benefiting from Americans’ continued willingness to spend is Carlisle Wide Plank Floors, based in Stoddard, N.H. Carlisle makes hardwood flooring used in stores, restaurants and hotels. CEO Michael Stanek said orders jumped 30 percent in the first quarter compared with a year earlier. The company is hiring factory, sales and administrative employees to meet the higher demand. Carlisle expects to add about 15 employees this year to its 85-person workforce. Friday’s report showed that the U.S. economy added 70,000 more jobs in April and May than the government had previously estimated — 50,000 in April and 20,000 in May. Further job growth could lower unemployment and help the economy rebound after a weak start this year. If so, the Fed would likely scale back its bond purchases later this year. The Fed has been buying $85 billion in Treas-

ury and mortgage bonds each month since late last year. The purchases pushed long-term interest rates to historic lows, fueled a stock rally and encouraged consumers and businesses to borrow and spend. The low rates have helped support an economy that’s had to absorb government spending cuts and a Social Security tax increase that’s shrunk paychecks this year. John Silvia, chief economist at Wells Fargo, said he thinks the Fed will announce at its September policy meeting that it will start reducing its bond purchases, perhaps to $75 billion a month. Chairman Ben Bernanke has said the Fed’s bond buying could end around the time unemployment reaches 7 percent. The Fed foresees that happening around mid-2014. But Silvia said he didn’t think unemployment would reach 7 percent by then. He thinks the Fed could continue its bond buying into 2015. Friday’s report contained at least one element of concern: Many of the job gains were in generally lower-paying industries, a trend that emerged earlier this year. The hotels, restaurants and entertainment industry added 75,000 jobs in June. This industry has added an average 55,000 jobs a month this year, nearly double its average in 2012. Retailers added 37,000. Temporary jobs rose 10,000. The health care industry added 20,000 jobs, construction 13,000. But manufacturing, which includes many higher-paying positions, shed 6,000. The manufacturing sector has weakened this year.

EGYPT thing of a bipartisan endorsement Friday from the Republican chairman and the top Democrat of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Republican Rep. Ed Royce of California and Democrat Eliot Engel of New York issued a joint statement that criticized Morsi for not embracing “inclusiveness, compromise, respect for human and minority rights and a commitment to the rule of law. “ “We are encouraged that a broad cross-section of Egyptians will gather to rewrite the constitution,” the lawmakers said. Like Obama, they urged the Egyptian military “to exercise extreme caution moving forward and support sound democratic institutions through which the people and future governments can flourish.” In spite of U.S. urging, Egyptian authorities arrested and detained the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, General Guide Mohammed Badie, on Thursday, although he was later released and emerged publicly Friday to speak defiantly before a cheering crowd of pro-Morsi supporters, vowing to reinstate ousted Morsi and end military rule.

From Page 1 least a dozen presidential aides already had been placed under house arrest. The swearing-in of Adly Mansour, the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court, as Egypt’s interim president illustrated the military’s desire to be seen as quickly returning the nation to civilian control. Morsi’s ouster also threatened a divided reaction in Congress. One view tended to support the Egyptian military’s action because of the longtime partnership between the U.S. and Egyptian military officials as well as perceived threats by Morsi to the type of democracy Egyptians aspired to during their 2011 revolution. Another view, however, noted that U.S. law called for an end to aid to a country if a military deposed its democratically elected government, even amid promises of a return of power to its people. Obama on Wednesday, while not calling Morsi’s ouster a coup, said he was ordering the government to assess what the developments portended for aid to Cairo. The U.S. considers the $1.5 billion a year it sends Egypt to be a critical U.S. national security priority.

Hot dog vendor retires after 60 seasons BY CLIFF RADEL Associated Press CINCINNATI (AP) — With 60 seasons in the big leagues, Millie Wilson is calling it quits. “I’ve seen playoffs, World Series, All-Star Games,” she said. “There’s nothing new for me at the ballpark.” Her career highlights would amount to fine print on the back of a baseball card. If, that is, they issued baseball cards for hot dog vendors. “People would need a magnifying glass to read about what I’ve seen,” the 78-year-old native East Ender added, letting out a laugh while adjusting her black Reds baseball cap over her white hair. “I’ve seen it all,” she said. “That’s why I’m hanging it up. My last game is Friday.” With that she went to work. Ninety minutes before game time, as Tuesday night’s Great American Ball Park crowd trickled in, bags of peanuts needed stacking. Hot dogs barked to be kept warm. Ninety minutes later, Homer Bailey began his second career no-hitter. “I’ve seen no-hitters,” Millie said. “A bunch.” Six, to be exact, counting Bailey’s latest gem. The divorced mother of three - “only are two living, a boy in California, a girl in town” - bustled about the concession stand. Her station is at the end of the third-base line, on the View Level, across from Section 410, the allyou-can-eat seats. For Millie, the stand marks the end of the line for a career that began in 1954 at Crosley Field. “That’s my favorite ballpark,” said this veteran of three Reds homes, Crosley, Riverfront Stadium and Great American. She leaned on the concession stand’s

MILLIE WILSON hands over two hot dogs to Kevin Kleman as they talk Cincinnati Reds baseball before the Reds’ baseball game against the San Francisco Giants at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati Tuesday. Wilson, 78, retires after the Reds’ July 5 game after almost 60 years of selling hot dogs in the big leagues. stainless-steel counter and looked out to see a green sliver of right field. In her mind’s eye, she could see all of Crosley Field. “That was a true ballpark,” she said. “It was homey. The players walked by the concession stands on their way to the field. Their wives stopped by to talk with you. It was in a neighborhood. They should have kept that standing and left it for kids to play in. Instead, they tore down a piece of history.” Millie’s rookie season coincided with the first big-league at bat for Chuck Harmon, her home team’s first African-American player. When he broke the Reds’ color line that year at home in April 1954, Millie was there. “I was at a concession stand,” she said, “selling hamburgers, brats, metts and hot dogs.” When the end comes tonight, she’ll still be at a stand selling hot dogs. She joked that it looks

like she never got a promotion. “I’m just a plain, old worker,” she said. Hardly. Plain, old workers never amass these career stats: She outlasted 22 Reds managers. Reds skipper Dusty Baker is No. 23. She has watched no fewer than 932 Reds take the field. She has seen parts of 4,730 regular-season games. At work, she’s never seen a complete game. Someone is always coming up to her wanting something. A cold beer. A hot dog. Millie turned up her nose at the mention of a hot dog. “Don’t like ‘em,” she said. “Never have.” Her eyes scanned the crowd. Two guys approached the stand. “Sir! Can I help you?” Millie asked in a friendly, but firm, shout. One of the two timid guys pointed a finger to his chest and said: “You talking to me?” Millie nodded. From her 60 years of experience, she knows this is how to keep the cus-

tomer satisfied and make money for her employer, Delaware North, the Reds’ concessionaire. Kevin Kleman, a salesman from Ludlow Falls, Ohio, “75 miles, one way from Cincinnati,” stepped closer. He smiled and ordered two hot dogs with a side order of baseball chatter. He noticed Millie’s white hair. He found out she was in her 60th season. “You like the Reds?” he asked. “Love ‘em,” she replied. He started grilling her like an underdone hot dog. Her favorite Reds manager? She told him she had none. But, she has a soft spot in her heart for “Fred Hutchinson. He got cancer and died in 1964, long before his time. He took the Reds to the World Series in 1961.” Her favorite Reds ballplayer? Millie plays no favorites. “But I loved Pete Rose and the Big Red

Prison works to reduce inmate assaults BY ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — Inmate-on-inmate assaults nearly doubled in two years at a north-central Ohio prison, higher than the statewide average, according to a new report that also notes an increase in disturbances and low morale among guards. The prison, Mansfield Correctional Institution, also has one of the largest inmate segregation populations in the state, and has also seen a jump in the number of payouts given to inmates because of lost property, according to the Correctional Institution Inspection Committee. The CIIC report was issued just days before convicted rapist James Myers escaped from the prison Wednesday night, only to be recaptured 24 hours later. The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction hasn’t said how the escape happened. The report notes the

prison has “a challenging inmate population” with frequent gang-related incidents and numerous inmates transferred in because of discipline problems. Myers was housed in a pod where inmates receive more privileges than those in a set of other, more restrictive pods, Department of Rehabilitation and Correction spokeswoman JoEllen Smith said in an email Friday. Overtime costs at Mansfield — an indicator of staffing shortages — fell significantly in 2012 but are still above the statewide average, according to the CIIC, a nonpartisan legislative committee that researches prison issues in Ohio. Despite the assault rate and other problems, the CIIC concluded that conditions are improving under Warden Terry Tibbals, with Mansfield the only Ohio correctional facility of its kind to reduce its total violent incident rate two years running. Tibbals attributes the

problems to the prison h t t p : / / s d n n e w s. b p c xportElement.php?Hist o ryID=308665&elem=bod yhousing more problematic inmates as part of a department-wide initiative. “Your end result is that you receive more violent, predatory, disruptive inmates and you get rid of the less violent inmates,” he said in an interview this week. The CIIC report said inmate assaults on staff have gone done 6.5 percent from 2010 to 2012 but are still higher than the statewide average. The union representing prison guards said the report attempts to paint too rosy a light at Mansfield and questioned the way some statistics — such as inmate-on-staff assaults — were calculated. “The prison remains a very dangerous place to work,” said Christopher Mabe, president of the Ohio Civil Service Employees Association. Prison violence is al-

Several buses, vehicles stolen GOLF MANOR (AP) — Police say several buses and other vehicles were stolen from a bus company in suburban Cincinnati, and one small bus was found wrecked on the business’s lot. Golf Manor police Officer James Gilbert says

about 11 vehicles were stolen from the Petermann bus company lot. They include several buses, a service truck and a van. Gilbert says officers were called to the Petermann lot in the southwest Ohio village at about 5:30 Friday morn-

ing after workers discovered the theft. Some of the vehicles had been recovered in the Cincinnati area by midmorning Friday. Gilbert says there was no immediate estimate on the value of the vehicles or the amount of property damage.

ways a concern, but especially now as the state’s inmate population grows despite widespread efforts to reduce the number of people behind bars. Mansfield is one of six prisons housing Level 3 inmates, above medium security but below maximum. The six prisons all receive inmates transferred because of security problems, but Mansfield and Lebanon Correctional Institution get the most because of their size. Another Level 3 prison, Toledo Correctional Institution, has struggle recently with violence, including two inmate homicides since September. The state could house as many as 52,100 inmates by the end of the next two year budget cycle in June 2015, or 1,200 above projections, according to the prisons system. That’s also several thousand more inmates than the state estimated in 2011 during a debate over a law meant to reduce the population through changes in sentencing. That estimate said Ohio would house as few as 47,000 by inmates by 2015 if the bill passed. Inmate property that is lost, stolen or destroyed costs Ohio taxpayers more than $150,000 a year in claims reimbursement and diverted staff time, the CIIC said in a report last year that also said the cost is growing.

Machine. There will never be another team like that in a million years.” Kleman mentioned Rose’s gambling problems. “I like to gamble,” Millie piped up. “But I go to the casino. Never bet on baseball.” Can’t say the same for Rose. “If Pete had just gone to a casino,” Millie added, “he might still be in baseball.” Kleman turned to go. He asked Millie if she was going to come back next year for her 61st season. “Nope,” she happily replied. “After Friday night’s game, I’m done.” Kleman reached out and rubbed her arm “for luck tonight for the Reds and for luck for you in your retirement.” His touch got to Millie. She tried not to let it show. But that got her talking about why she is retiring in midseason. “My ride was one of the girls who worked at the ballpark,” she said. “She got herself fired. Now, I’m taking the bus. My kids don’t like me coming home by myself late at night, crossing two busy

streets and walking past 25 houses before I get home.” She handed over four bags of peanuts to two customers. The men, showing signs of never missing a meal, were in the all-you-can-eat section. After they lumbered away, Millie insisted she won’t miss spending her days and nights at the ballpark. “Been doing this since I was 19,” she said. “My aunt got me the job. I used to work at River Downs and Cincinnati Gardens, too.” Always at a concession stand. Never in the stands. Always handling hot dogs. “The only thing I miss is Crosley Field,” she added. “Baseball was different then. It wasn’t all about money. “Today,” she said, handing over two more hot dogs to two more heavyweights, “things have changed. Baseball is like every other business.” Except for one thing: Every business doesn’t have a Millie Wilson. ————— Information from: The Cincinnati Enquirer,

Escaped inmate used phone, was tackled BY KANTELE FRANKO Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — An escaped prison inmate used the phone at a small general store and bought an iced tea and a lighter at a counter where his mug shot was displayed before a customer tackled him, ending a daylong search in a matter of minutes, store workers said Friday. Store employees told the owner that James David Myers tried to use change from his pocket to cover up his picture before he was tackled and tied up with rope off the shelf Thursday night, less than 24 hours after he was found to be missing from a prison about 8 miles away in Mansfield. The prison and the State Highway Patrol have refused to discuss how Myers, who worked in the prison’s maintenance area, escaped before a headcount Wednesday, his 47th birthday. Employees at the Olivesburg General Store in rural north-central Ohio reported that Myers asked to use the phone Thursday evening, saying he needed to call for help because his vehicle broke down nearby, said store owner Connie Crossen, who arrived later. Myers, in a white T-shirt and dark pants, had been carrying a coat labeled with the prison’s abbreviation, Crossen said. Employee Greg Gallaway said he was scooping ice cream when, in disbelief, he and a customer wearing an American flag shirt for the Fourth of July recognized Myers at about the same time. “I’m kind of looking around the room, like, ‘Is anyone else seeing what I’m seeing right now?’” said Gallaway, 20. The customer in the flag shirt, Mark Cooper, told Cleveland’s WEWSTV he had figured Myers was long gone, but he be-

came suspicious when he overheard a man ask to use the store phone. Cooper — 6-foot-4 and 320 pounds — said he called authorities and then decided to take action, hoping to keep others safe, but couldn’t tell whether Myers had a weapon beneath his clothes. “I just walked back over there and threw him to the ground, didn’t give him a chance to get a gun,” Cooper told the station. Surveillance video from the store shows Cooper grabbing Myers from behind and pinning him to the floor. “It was awesome, honestly,” said Gallaway. He said Myers didn’t resist once pinned, and others helped tie him up. Myers was taken back to the prison, where he’d been held for the rape, kidnapping and other crimes. Though authorities had warned the public not to engage Myers if he was spotted, Crossen said she was proud of how employees handled the situation. Gallaway said it didn’t occur to him until afterward that the inmate might have been armed. “While we wouldn’t encourage people to take action regarding a dangerous criminal who had just escaped from prison, you know, we understand that they did what they had to do,” said Lt. Anne Ralston, a patrol spokeswoman. “We’re thankful to get him into custody without incident and get him back to the prison without anybody getting hurt.” Prison officials wouldn’t say whether Myers previously tried to escape. Myers, formerly of Mogadore, was imprisoned in 2010 on kidnapping, rape, aggravated burglary and other charges out of northeast Ohio’s Summit County. Prosecutors alleged he raped a woman at gunpoint and forced her to consume cocaine, and an appeals court upheld his conviction, according to court records.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Saturday, July 6, the 187th day of 2013. There are 178 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 6, 1933, the first All-Star baseball game was played at Chicago’s Comiskey Park; the American League defeated the National League, 4-2. On this date: • In 1483, England’s King Richard III was crowned in Westminster Abbey. • In 1535, Sir Thomas More was executed in England for high treason. • In 1777, during the American Revolution, British forces captured Fort Ticonderoga. • In 1885, French scientist Louis Pasteur tested an anti-rabies vaccine on 9-year-old Joseph Meister, who had been bitten by an infected dog; the boy did not develop rabies. • In 1917, during World War I, Arab forces led by T.E. Lawrence and Auda Abu Tayi captured the port of Aqaba (AH’-kah-buh) from the Turks. • In 1944, an estimated 168 people died in a fire that broke out during a performance in the main tent of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in Hartford, Conn. • In 1945, President Harry S. Truman signed an executive order establishing the Medal of Freedom. • In 1957, Althea Gibson became the first black tennis player to win a Wimbledon singles title as she defeated fellow American Darlene Hard 6-3, 6-2. • In 1963, the cult horror movie “Blood Feast” had its world premiere at a drive-in theater in Peoria, Ill. • In 1973, classical conductor Otto Klemperer, 88, died in Zurich, Switzerland. • In 1983, Fred Lynn of the California Angels hit the first (and, to date, only) grand slam in an AllStar game as the American League zoomed to a 13-3 victory over the National League in Chicago’s Comiskey Park. • In 1988, 167 North Sea oil workers were killed when explosions and fires destroyed a drilling platform. Medical waste and other debris began washing up on New York Cityarea seashores, forcing the closing of several popular beaches. • Ten years ago: Liberian leader Charles Taylor accepted an offer of asylum in Nigeria (he resigned and flew into exile the following month).

28 hurt in fireworks mishap BY GILLIAN FLACCUS Associated Press SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — As many as 10,000 Fourth of July revelers were just settling into their seats for the fireworks show at a Simi Valley park when a bright plume of red and white bursts spread across the ground, injuring 28 people and sending others fleeing for safety. Police in the city northwest of Los Angeles were still investigating what caused Thursday night’s explosion, but it appeared a firework detonated prematurely in its mortar, knocking over a row of others, police said. The mortars toppled like “dominoes” and one or more fired into a crowd of spectators some 800 feet away, police Cmdr. Blair Summey told the Los Angeles Times ( ). A view of the scene from a distance Friday morning showed groups of mortars held vertically in box-like wooden structures sitting on the ground. In front of them, a number of mortar tubes lay horizontally scattered on the ground. “For some unknown reasons the structure that holds these ordinances collapsed and caused them to be firing into the crowd,” said Simi Valley police Cmdr. Stephanie Shannon. Cellphone videos captured fireworks exploding in spheres of sparks close to the ground, with smoke and people screaming. The 28 victims ranged in age from 8 to 78 years old, Sgt. Tom Meyer said. A total

VICTIMS ARE treated by medical personnel and volunteers at Ranch Santa Susana Community Park in Simi Valley, Calif., Thursday. A number of people were injured due to a fireworks related accident during the annual Fourth of July celebration. of 20 people were taken by ambulance to area hospitals. Four suffered serious, but not life-threatening, injuries. One police officer who ran into the crowd when the blasts occurred had shrapnel tear through his leather belt and his clothing, Shannon said. He had minor injuries to his back. On Friday morning, blackened debris from the explosion littered the ground. Huge chunks of black shrapnel were still scattered across the park and the stand the fireworks had been on was sitting, charred, in the middle of a green lawn. Investigators planned to fly over the scene to photograph it and examine the debris, Meyer said.

The fireworks company, Bay Fireworks, said in a statement that it regrets the injuries, and planned a thorough investigation, with results to be made public. The company also said that injured spectators should contact the Simi Valley Rotary Club to reach the company’s insurer. The annual July Fourth celebration has been sponsored by the city and the local Rotary Club for the past 43 years. The company, based in Bethpage, N.Y., has produced events for NASA, Walt Disney, Legoland and the Republican National Convention, according to the company’s website. The mishap came a year after a fireworks show in San

Diego exploded in about 20 seconds and sent multiple bulb-shaped explosions over the bay. The show’s producer blamed a “technical glitch,” saying an error in its computer system caused tens of thousands of fireworks on four barges to go off simultaneously with a single command. That show was not produced by Bay Fireworks. A video clip of the Simi Valley accident that aired on KCAL-TV shows a pair of firework blasts at or near the ground. Another clip, posted on YouTube and shot from a distance, shows three groundlevel bursts. The fireworks continue for almost another minute before stopping.

Pope Francis clears John Paul II, John XXIII for sainthood BY NICOLE WINFIELD Associated Press VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis on Friday cleared two of the 20th century’s most influential popes to become saints, approving a miracle needed to canonize Pope John Paul II and waiving Vatican rules to honor Pope John XXIII. It was a remarkable show of papal authority and confirmed Francis’ willingness to bend church tradition when it comes to things he cares deeply about. Both popes are also closely identified with the Second Vatican Council, the 196265 meetings that brought the Catholic Church into modern times, an indication that Francis clearly wants to make a statement about the council’s role in shaping the church today. Francis approved a decree that a Costa Rican woman’s inexplicable cure from a deadly brain aneurism was the “miracle” needed to canonize John Paul. More significantly, he decided that John XXIII, who

(AP) — A Northern California roller coaster appears to have been a little too much fun. The Gold Striker at Great America in Santa Clara had to be taken offline this week because riders were screaming too loudly. The San Jose Mercury News reports that the shrieks were exceeding the decibel limit agreed upon in a settlement with Prudential Real Estate, which owns adjacent properties. So Great America had to cover a portion of the track in a sound-dampening tunnel. The wooden roller coaster reopened on Wednesday after the work was completed.

many of those will be the young and healthy adults insurers are trying to reach, but that subgroup makes up a very small portion of the overall market. Even though it’s small, experts say it could be enough to throw the system’s financing off-kilter. About 3 million 18-24 yearolds in the U.S. currently purchase their own insurance. Many pay high prices for scant benefits, with high deductibles and co-pays because they make too much to qualify for Medicaid and have no coverage options from their employers or parents. The Urban Institute estimates that the majority of adults in their 20s will qualify for government subsidies under the Affordable Care Act. Premium hikes could be a disincentive for young people weighing their options. Pre-

convened Vatican II, could be declared a saint even without a second miracle attributed to his intercession. The Vatican said Francis had the power to dispense with such requirements and could proceed with only one confirmed miracle to John’s name. The ceremony is expected before the end of the year. The date of Dec. 8 has been floated as likely, given it’s the feast of the Immaculate Conception, a major feast day for the church that honors Mary, to whom both saintly popes were particularly devoted. Polish prelates continue to press for October, to mark the 35th anniversary of the Polish-born John Paul’s election, but Vatican officials have suggested that’s too soon to organize such a massive event. The announcement came on a remarkable day melding papacies past and present: It opened with Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI attending their first Vatican ceremony together, sitting side-by-side on matching papal chairs for the unveiling of a

statue in the Vatican gardens. It continued with the publication of Francis’ first encyclical, a meditation on faith that was largely written by Benedict before he retired but was signed by Francis. And it climaxed with Francis’ decision to canonize two other predecessors. Each event, historic on its own, would have captured headlines. But the canonization announcement capped them all, reflecting the priorities of this unique pontificate that has already broken so many rules and traditions, from Francis’ decision to shun papal vestments to his housing arrangements, living in the Vatican hotel rather than the stuffy Apostolic Palace. The Rev. Thomas Reese, a Vatican analyst, said the decision to canonize both popes was a “brilliant move to unify the church,” given that each pope has his own admirers and critics. “With the joint announcement, Pope Francis is saying we do not have to choose between popes, we can honor and revere both as holy men who

served the church well in their times,” he wrote on his blog for the National Catholic Reporter newspaper. Vatican II, which John XXIII opened a year before his 1963 death, opened the church to people of other faiths and allowed for Mass to be celebrated in the languages of the faithful, rather than Latin. In the years since it closed in 1965, though, it has become a source of division in the church, with critics blaming a faulty interpretation of Vatican II’s true meaning on the fall in priestly vocations and the “crisis” in the church today. To anyone who has been paying attention, Francis’ decision to canonize John Paul and John XXIII should come as no surprise: The Jesuit was made a cardinal by John Paul, who attended Vatican II, and is very much a priest of John’s legacy. On the anniversary of John Paul’s death this year, Francis prayed at the tombs of both John Paul and John XXIII — an indication that he sees a great personal and spiritual continuity in them.

From Page 1 miums for people aged 21 to 29 with single coverage who are not eligible for government subsidies would increase by 42 percent under the law, according to an analysis by actuaries at the consulting firm Oliver Wyman. By comparison, an adult in his or her early 60s who would see about a 1 percent average increase in premiums under new federal health rules. Insurers including America’s Health Insurance Plans and The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association recently wrote to federal health officials warning that they feared low enrollment by young adults and proposed beefed up penalties for opting out. Insurers worry the $100 penalty might not be a strong enough deterrent. The penalties jump to $695 or 2.5 percent of taxable income — whichever is more — by 2016. “The key to keeping health care affordable is you really

want to balance the pool, where you have enough young and healthy people to balance off the care of the older, sicker people who are likely to utilize much more health care services,” said Justine Handelman, the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association’s vice president for legislative and regulatory policy. She said younger people use about a fifth of the services that older beneficiaries do. Jonathan Gruber, an economics professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who helped craft that state’s law, said he thinks the first-year federal penalty should be higher. The penalty under the Massachusetts law, which served as the model for Obama’s overhaul, was $218 the first year in 2007. Gruber said that amount proved effective. “People hate paying money and getting nothing for it,”

he said. Roughly 40,000 of about 6 million Massachusetts residents paid the penalty the first year, he said. Many young adults have chosen relatively bare-bones health plans before the Affordable Care Act, but the new law requires all plans to offer a minimum set of benefits, thus raising the price for coverage. The cost of health coverage is difficult to estimate because it includes so many factors, but a 27-year-old making $30,000 a year in 2014 will have a $3,400 premium and will be eligible for subsidies that cover about 26 percent of the bill. That person would end up paying $2,509, or about $209 a month. That does not include deductibles, co-pays and other variables which can vary widely. The estimates come from the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation’s online Health Reform Subsidy Calculator.

Members of the board of directors of Compassionate Care of Shelby County accepted the organization’s 2012 audit during their meeting June 27. The audit, by Lightner and Stickel CPAs Inc., showed a growth in revenue of 7 percent over 2011 and a reduction in overhead of 1 percent. Director Teresa Ditmer reported that EMR implementation will be complete by July 10 and that results of the satisfaction survey of patients in the 2013 second quarter showed positive results, with high praise for the organization’s staff and volunteers. Dr. Jeff Van Treese reported that there is a real need to increase the number of dental hygienists, so that more preventive care can be provided at the clinic. There are currently five active dentists vol-

unteering services with two hygienists. The goal is increase the number of hygienists by at least three. Eric Ditmer updated the board on the status of the HVAC system needs. He is working with Refrigeration, Eck Lochards Inc., Krammer Roofing, Dickman Supply, Emerson Climate Technologies and Tom Finkenbine to provide donated services or supplies at cost. He said expects a quote from Ferguson Construction on the elevator in a few weeks. He also reported that sewage lines will need to be replaced and Eric is getting quotes from John Lloyd Concrete Construction and Slagel Mechanical. The board also discussed the possibility of establishing a wellness center in the lower level of the clinic building.

Salvation Army seeks donations of school supplies for needy students The Salvation Army has announced that collection boxes are in place for its 13th annual Schools Tools drive. School Tools is the collection and distribution of school supplies to underprivileged children in the Sidney and Shelby County area. “It is so important for the children of Sidney and Shelby County to have all they need for the start of school, and with this program, we help make that possible,” said Stacy McNeil, community center out-

reach director. The average retail cost to ready a student for school each year is $60-$75, an overwhelming price, McNeil said, for low-income, singleparent families or when it must be multiplied for additional children in the family. Donations of items to the School Tools program can be made by Aug. 5 at the following collection sites: St. Jacob’s Lutheran Church in Anna and the First Church of God, St. John’s Lutheran Church,

Russell Road Christian Center, Sidney First United Methodist Church, Grace Baptist Church, Trinity Church of the Brethren, Only Believe Ministries, Walmart, Wilson Memorial Hospital, Peerless, Hydro Aluminum, the Salvation Army and the Shelby County YMCA, all in Sidney. Students’ needs are determined by participating schools’ principals, teachers and staff. More information regarding general sign-ups for aid will be made

available in early August. Supplies will be dispensed to the schools for distribution the week of Aug. 5. Students from participating schools are assisted first, followed by general sign-ups, assisting students from nonparticipating schools. In 2012, more than 550 students attending area schools 20 were served. To become a collection site or for more information on the School Tools program, call 492-8412.

For more than 90 years, spanning three generations, the Wagner family has served the area with a grocery store in Minster and added the Fort Loramie location in 2003. This community-focused grocer continues to focus on quality products, good value and excellent customer service. “We’re excited to bring a Wagner’s location to New Bremen. The location is currently undergoing a total remodeling and will feature many of the attributes of our Minster and Fort Loramie locations.” said Wagner, a

third-generation owner of the company.

WSU-Lake Campus students go to Europe CELINA — Wright State University-Lake Campus mechanical engineering students participated in an international learning program in June. Seven students and their instructor, Dennis Hance, traveled to Jena, Germany, on May 31. During their stay in Jena, the students attended undergraduate classes at the University of Applied Sciences in Jena and study microprocessors/robotics and electro-mechanical drives. They also took classes to learn German language and culture. The group toured the Crown Plant in Röding; Buchwald Concentration Camp, Weimer; Prague, Czech Republic; and Carl Zeiss Optics. The group returned to the states on June 28. Students going on the trip were Jordon Coffman, of Rockford; Aaron Freeman, of New Bremen; David John Neiferd, of Van Wert; Brad Pontius, of Rockford; John Will, of Maria Stein; Bill Winner, of Maria Stein; and Eric Wuebker, of St. Henry.


The mechanical engineering program at WSU-Lake Campus has collaborated with local companies and organizations to obtain scholarships and donations to help offset the students’ costs. Through discussions held during the WSU-Lake Campus 2013 Regional Summit, it was clear that international experience is valuable to local companies whose businesses may include multiple facilities worldwide, WSU officials said. Besides creating skilled professionals, the economy needs leaders familiar with traveling abroad. International learning programs will aid in filling that need, officials said. Students interested in the mechanical engineering program should contact Wright State University-Lake Campus at (419) -586-0300 to schedule an appointment with an adviser.

Supreme Court ruling has employers tweaking benefits BY SAM HANANEL Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court’s landmark ruling on same-sex marriage has private employers around the country scrambling to make sure their employee benefit plans comply with the law. The impact of the decision striking down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act is clear in the 13 states and the District of Columbia where gay marriage is currently legal or soon will be: Same-sex married couples must be treated the same as other spouses under federal laws governing tax, health care, pensions and other federal benefits. But employee benefit experts say the effect of the ruling remains murky in the other 37 states. The court left intact another provision of the federal anti-gay marriage law that allows one state not to recognize a same-sex marriage performed elsewhere. “What’s the federal government going to do when you have a valid marriage in New York and the couple moves to Texas? We don’t know the answer to that,” said Scott Macey, president of the ERISA Industry Committee that represents large employers. The confusion is creating uncertainty for many companies that operate nationwide and want to administer benefit plans

in a uniform manner. “My members are all across the country,” Macey said. “Most, if not all of them, would prefer to have a consistent rule across the country. They don’t want to worry about changing things from state to state.” For workers living in states that have legalized same-sex marriage, the Supreme Court’s demeans gay cision spouses are entitled to a host of benefits they were denied previously. The decision extends pension and Social Security survivor benefits to same-sex spouses, grants equal access to the Family and Medical Leave Act and gives employees married to same-sex spouses the guarantee of uninterrupted health care coverage under the federal COBRA health benefits program. Same-sex couples can also get the same tax break on health coverage that other couples have been receiving. Before the court’s ruling, samesex spouses covered by employer health plans had to pay taxes on the benefits they received, which on average added up to an extra $1,000 year. And employees now will be able to seek reimbursement from flexible health spending accounts for the medical expenses of gay spouses. “This affects a thousand laws and regulations that touch employee benefits,” said Bruce Elliott, manager of compensation and bene-

fits at the Society for Human Resource Management, an industry association. But many questions were left unanswered by the court. What happens if an employee lives in Maryland, which allows same-sex marriages, but works in neighboring Virginia, which doesn’t? What happens to an employee who has a valid gay marriage in Iowa, but then moves to Alabama, which doesn’t recognize same-sex marriages? “It answers one question and raised many more,” said Susan Hoffman, a Philadelphia attorney who focuses on benefits. employee “There may be pressures on the employer, but there is no legal mandate.” About 62 percent of Fortune 500 companies already offer same-sex domestic partner health benefits, according to the gay advocacy group Human Rights Campaign. More of those companies, and perhaps smaller firms, could decide to extend those benefits in light of the court’s decision. Several companies that already offer domestic partner benefits told The Associated Press that they did not plan any immediate changes. That includes Ford Motor Co., which has offered same-sex benefits to hourly and salaried employees since 2000, spokesman Jay Cooney said.

At glass manufacturer Corning Inc. in New York, spokesman Daniel Collins said the company has been in the process of revising its policies as different states legalize gay marriage. For now, though, it plans to keep its domestic partner benefits until it has more guidance. “It’s so new and actions are occurring so quickly,” Collins said. Verizon spokesman Ray McConville said the company was still evaluating the decision. Hoffman said the legal ambiguities will have to be resolved in future court decisions as gay couples seek to protect their benefits in states that don’t recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. Macey said the federal government could go a long way in clarifying things when it issues regulations establishing how the court ruling should be implemented. The court seemed to leave it up to the Internal Revenue Service and other various federal agencies to decide how to resolve conflicts between states over gay marriage. Barack President Obama said he’s directed the attorney general and members of his Cabinet “to review all relevant federal statutes to ensure this decision, including its implications for federal benefits and obligations, is implemented swiftly and smoothly.”

Medications like Viagra or Cialis don’t affect libido; however, erectile problems can themselves lead to a reduced libido. You are right about the popular media today. I have seen men react very differently to the loss of libido common in the 60s and older. Some have been frustrated, but a large number have told me they found it a relief. Many have said that their libido comes and goes.

Under the circumstances, her feelings are entirely understandable. If there is any love for you left in her heart, counseling may help to get your relationship back on track. However, if she refuses, you will have to accept her decision and go on with your life, having learned a very expensive lesson.

Mariners whip Reds 4-2 CINCINNATI (AP) — Aaron Harang pitched six innings in the ballpark where he still holds the strikeout record, and Nick Franklin and Michael Saunders homered on Friday night, leading the Seattle Mariners to a 4-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Harang (4-7) limited his former team to a pair of runs and six hits, including Joey Votto’s 15th homer. Oliver Perez struck out the side in the ninth for his second save. Franklin hit a two-run homer off Mike Leake (7-4), who had his start pushed back one day by a rainout. Saunders had a solo homer and a sacrifice fly off Leake, who lasted five innings. The Mariners are making their second visit to Cincinnati and their first to Great American Ball Park, which opened in 2003. In their other trip, they swept a three-game series at Cinergy Field in 2002. The Mariners are 9-1 all-time against the Reds. Seattle and Cincinnati will always have one notable baseball connection: Ken Griffey Jr., who grew up in Cincinnati, developed into one of the majors’ best with Seattle, and returned to his hometown in a trade before the 2000 season. Griffey finished his career in 2010, when he retired from the Mariners. Harang pitched for the Reds from 2003-10, starting five season openers. He holds the record for most career

Howard chooses Rockets

QUOTE OF THE DAY “When you go to a baseball game, the entire thing is the baseball game. When you go to a NASCAR race, there’s all the pre-race stuff, there’s things going on before the race — hours before the race you get here — so you have to entertain the fans in other ways other than just the race because they’ve come to expect it. In many ways, it requires more effort from our racetrack owners than baseball or football.” — NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Jeff Burton, during the groundbreaking for renovations at Daytona International Speedway Friday

ON THIS DATE IN 1933 — The first major league All-Star game is played at Comiskey Park, Chicago. The American League beats the National League 4-2 on Babe Ruth's two-run homer. 1968 — Billie Jean King wins her third consecutive women's singles title at Wimbledon by beating Australia's Judy Tegart 9-7, 7-5. 1998 — Se Ri Pak, 20, becomes the youngest U.S. Women's Open champion after hitting an 18-foot birdie on the 20th extra hole to beat amateur Jenny Chuasiriporn in the longest Women's Open in history.

He hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth for a 4-0 lead, the most runs Leake had allowed in a game since May 8. Miller also tripled down the right-field line in the fifth but was stranded at third. He’s the first Mariner to have two triples in one game since Carlos Guillen in 2003 and the 13th overall, according to STATS LLC.

USA Today reported Friday night that NBA star Dwight Howard will sign with the Houston Rockets. The story was confirmed by After meeting with the Warriors, Lakers, Howard Rockets, Mavericks and Hawks, Howard retreated to Colorado on Tuesday to weigh his choices and make a decision. Late Friday, Howard made his choice, going with the youthful Rockets where he'll join James Harden, Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons. After spending his first eight seasons with the Magic, Howard was traded to the Lakers as the key piece in a four-team deal. The assumption was the Lakers had found a long-term franchise piece to assume the burden of being the face of their franchise after Kobe Bryant retires, but Howard has gone another direction, leaving the Lakers with their hat in their hands. Recovering from back surgery, Howard wasn't nearly as dominant or productive in L.A. parterning with Bryant, as the Lakers slogged through a miserably disappointing season that ended with them scraping into the playoffs and uncerimoniously getting swept by the Spurs. There were reports of tension between Bryant and Howard and rising speculation that Howard did not enjoy the scrutiny and attention that came with playing for the Lakers. A three-time Defensive Player of the Year, Howard immediately catapults the Rockets into the class of the West. It's a young team with a budding superstar in Harden with young, quality depth assembled as well. The Rockets took the Thunder to six games in the opening round of the playoffs, but showed extreme promise while doing so.

Labonte not ready to consider his future JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Bobby Labonte has spent his weekends at the race track for 22 consecutive years, a stretch so long he doesn’t even know what normal people do with their free time. He had to figure it out the hard way last weekend, when he found himself out of a ride for the first time since 1989. Labonte gave no specifics Thursday as to how he spent last weekend while AJ Allmendinger raced the No. 47 Toyota that Labonte has piloted since 2011. “Ended up staying busy doing something,” Labonte said. “Obviously wasn’t what I thought I’d be doing.” He didn’t watch the race at Kentucky Speedway, where his streak of 704 consecutive Sprint Cup Series starts came to an unwitting end. JTG Daugherty Racing decided to use Allmendinger in the car for a handful of races this year in an attempt for the single-car operation to get more feedback on its car and the overall program. Labonte was able to

Labonte’s consecutive start streak came to an end at 704 races last week at Kentucky. keep his streak going when the team used Allmendinger at Michigan last month by jumping into Phoenix Racing’s No. 51 car for the weekend. But he indicated Friday that it was a onetime only deal because of the conflict between JTG’s Toyota relationship and Phoenix’s use of Chevrolets. It put Allmendinger in an awkward position as he doesn’t want to be blamed for Labonte’s streak ending. “It’s such a tough sub-

Busch, Kenseth on front row DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Kyle Busch and Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Matt Kenseth swept the front row for Saturday night's race at Daytona International Speedway. Busch turned a lap at 193.723 mph in Friday qualifying to win the pole. Kenseth was second at 193.299. Clint Bowyer qualified second and Michael Waltrip Racing teammate Martin Truex Jr. was fifth as Toyota drivers took four of the first five spots. Kasey Kahne wedged his Chevrolet in

at fourth. Paul Menard was sixth in a Chevrolet, and MWR co-owner Michael Waltrip was seventh in another Toyota. Daytona 500 winner Jimmie Johnson was eighth, followed by rookie Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and his Roush-Fenway Racing teammate Greg Biffle as the highest-qualifying Fords. Danica Patrick wound up 11th in in her return to Daytona, where she became the first woman to start from the pole in the season-opening Daytona 500.

Daly withdraws, surgery coming WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — John Daly withdrew from The Greenbrier Classic golf tournament in West Virginia and tweeted later that he needed elbow surgery and would be away from golf for up to four months. Daly withdrew at 7over after playing just three holes Friday. He shot 5-over 75 Thursday on the Old White TPC Course.

The PGA said Daly withdrew with an elbow injury. Daly said later on Twitter that he would have surgery next week and miss three to four months. He followed with another tweet saying he had a “bionic new arm coming soon.” Daly, who played at Arkansas, bogeyed the par-4 10th hole and the par-5 12th hole on Friday. He had had a birdie on the 12th hole Thursday.

ject because I am just trying to go out there and do my job,” Allmendinger said. “They asked me to go out there and drive the car and get a feel for it and give my feedback. I’m just trying to give the best feedback I can, and at the end of the weekend, if they’ve learned some things, then I’ve done my job. “Bobby is so well-respected, he’s a champion, and streaks are going to end at some point. Not that I wanted it to end like that, but I

have no control over that. I’ve just been hired to drive a race car. That’s all.” Labonte didn’t watch Allmendinger race at Kentucky. He was off doing something — he offered only that he “was driving somewhere, so I didn’t get to” watch the race — and kept the details of his weekend private. Now back in the car for JTG at Daytona International Speedway, the former NASCAR champion was faced with questions he’s not ready to answer. “How long do you want to drive?” “Have you thought about retirement?” “What’s next for you?” It’s a conversation the 49-year-old Labonte is clearly not ready to have. He played coy on most of the questions, revealing very little about his thought process as he nears the end of a remarkable career. Labonte has 21 Cup victories dating to his 1993 rookie season, and he won the 2000 Cup title driving for Joe Gibbs Racing. But his last win was 10 years ago, at Homestead, in the 2003 season finale driving the

green No. 18 Interstate Batteries car that signified his career. He’s got just four top-10 finishes in his last 88 races, and none this year. He heads into Saturday night’s race at Daytona ranked 30th in the Cup standings. So why does Labonte continue to show up every weekend? “I’d love to say I can be happy sitting on the beach, but I don’t know if that can make me happy,” he said. “I’m happy sitting in a race car right now, and that’s my focus. Until someone tells me different, you try to enjoy what you enjoy.” He enjoyed it so much that he found his consecutive start streak ‚Äî second only among active drivers to Jeff Gordon’s 706 starts ‚Äî mattered a great deal to him when it was suddenly over. It didn’t come on his terms, and not racing at Kentucky last weekend marked the first Cup race without a Labonte in the field since the October 1978 race at North Carolina Speedway. Older brother Terry Labonte has 884 starts. “We’ll start a new one, I guess. You know it’s

going to end at some point in time, but I was really looking forward to going to Kentucky,” he said. “You take it one step at a time, you just take it one weekend at a time. Last weekend is over and we started over this weekend. I’ll tell you this, there is no way I am going to 704 again.” Labonte doesn’t know what he’ll be doing next year. He confirmed Thursday that Terry Labonte has inquired with James Finch about purchasing Phoenix Racing’s assets, but said he didn’t know if he could drive for his older brother. And he doesn’t know how long he’ll drive or when retirement will be the right thing for him. “I’m very thankful that, 704, my gosh, that’s cool,” he said. “I’ve been able to do that, take care of my stuff, do the right thing and just try to be who you are. That says a lot right there. I don’t look at anybody else. I don’t judge anybody else. When you feel like it’s the right time, it’s the right time. “There’s a time when you don’t want to do this, but until that time comes, you just try to be as positive about it and do the best you can.

1 vs. 2 final at Wimbledon LONDON (AP) — Novak Djokovic might win Wimbledon this year. Juan Martin del Potro will not. No matter how it ends, both men will always have their spot in one of the most memorable matches in the storied history of the All England Club. Slugging back and forth over a semifinalrecord 4 hours, 43 minutes of backbreaking tennis Friday, top-seeded Djokovic emerged with a 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-7 (6), 63 victory to move one win away from his seventh major title. “One of the most epic matches I’ve played in my life,” Djokovic said. On Sunday, Djokovic will play second-seeded Andy Murray, who defeated No. 24 Jerzy Janowicz 6-7 (2), 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 to make his second straight Wimbledon final and move one win away from becoming the first British man in 77 years to capture his country’s home tournament. This will be their third meeting in the last four Grand Slam finals. Murray won a five-setter at the U.S. Open last year and Djokovic won in four at the Australian Open this year. On Murray’s mind every bit as much, however, will be his 7-5, 7-5 win on Centre Court last year in the

Olympic semifinals. “I’ll take that thought to my head when we play on Sunday,” Murray said. With sunset less than an hour away, the Murray match was interrupted for a half-hour while the roof was closed over Centre Court. Murray protested the delay, saying there was still sunlight left. He had other reasons, too. He had just rolled off five straight games to close out the third set after falling behind 4-1. Frustrated? “Everybody would be,” Murray said. “I mean,

it’s just normal. You’ve got all the momentum with you. It’s still very light outside. You know, they played the Wimbledon final of Rafa and Roger played until, what, 9:40 in the evening? It was 8:40 when we stopped. There’s still 40 minutes to an hour to play.” The late finish came courtesy of what had been billed as the undercard, but turned into something much better. Del Potro and Djokovic played the longest semifinal in Wimbledon history. Their match came up only five minutes

short of the one Murray referred to — the 2008 five-set final between Federer and Roger Rafael Nadal that’s generally considered the greatest match played on Centre Court, and perhaps anywhere. Djokovic and del Potro spent the entire, sundrenched afternoon exchanging huge groundstrokes, long rallies and even a few laughs during their marathon, which covered five sets, 55 games, two tiebreakers and 368 points. “I think this match is going to be memory for a few years,” del Potro said. “We play for four hours and a half on a very high level. We didn’t make too many errors. I don’t know if the rest of the players can play like us today.” Eighth-seeded Del Potro, back in a Grand Slam semifinal for the first time since winning the 2009 U.S. Open, saved two match points in the fourth-set tiebreaker, then won the final four points to take it 8-6. Shortly after, the match hit the 4-hour mark, guaranteeing it would surpass the 1989 match between Boris Becker and Ivan Lendl — a 4-hour, 1-minute affair — as the longest semifinal in Wimbledon’s long history.

Reds, Giants SCOREBOARD explore makeup game options AUTO


NASCAR qualifying

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds and Giants were exploring numerous options Friday for making up their rainedout game in Cincinnati, including the possibility of playing it on the road. Day-long rain forced the teams to call off the final game of their series scheduled for Thursday afternoon. It was San Francisco’s only trip into town. The teams share an off day on Aug. 29, their only break in long stretches of games. Manager Dusty Baker said Friday that the teams are exploring three or four different scenarios, including the possibility of playing the makeup in Colorado or as part of a doubleheader in San Francisco. “There is no easy solution to this,” Baker said. “I’m sure this is not the only time it’s going to happen to somebody with the schedule.” The packed schedule

is the problem. The 29th of August is the only time the Reds and Giants share a day off. Both teams would prefer to keep that day free. The defending NL Central champion Reds play 20 days in a row before that day off, followed by 13 consecutive days. Adding a game on the 29th would have them playing for 34 straight days — a tough thing late in the season. The defending World Series champion Giants play 16 straight days before that one day off, followed by 17 straight games. They, too, would wind up playing 34 straight days during the decisive part of the schedule. Baker said a long stretch of games like that could wear down a contending team. “When you’re out of gas that late in the year, you don’t get gas back until after the season,” Baker said.

Barn owls making a comeback COLUMBUS — Barn owls are making a comeback in Ohio, and more people every year have the pleasure of witnessing these beautiful birds, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). The ODNR Division of Wildlife is seeking reports from people who have seen barn owls. Reporting sightings of barn owls helps ODNR Division of Wildlife biologists estimate how many live in Ohio. This information benefits conservation efforts by tracking

where and how the owls live. If people believe a barn owl is living near them, they are encouraged to call the ODNR Division of Wildlife at 800-WILDLIFE (9453543) or email This species is easily identified by its white, heart-shaped face, large black eyes and goldenbrown and gray back. Adult barn owls communicate with shrieks and hissing-like calls, and the calls of young barn owls begging their parents for food are often heard on late

summer nights. Finding pellets is another indication that barn owls may be living nearby. Pellets are regurgitated bones and fur of their food. Small rodents living in hayfields and pastures are a barn owl’s main food source. A pair of barn owls and their young can eat more than 1,000 rodents in a year. As their name suggests, these birds find shelter in barns or other dark buildings, like silos. These buildings provide a safe place for them to rest during the

day and to raise their young. The ODNR Division of Wildlife has provided shelter for barn owls since 1988 by placing nest boxes on more than 400 barns. Nest boxes provide an opportunity for them to nest in barns they could not otherwise enter. This program has successfully increased barn owl populations in Ohio. The number of nests has increased from 19 in 1988 to more than 100 in 2012. Biologists believe many nest in areas other than these boxes.

New state record carp certified A new Ohio record carp taken by bowfishing has been certified by the Outdoor Writers of Ohio State Record Fish Committee. The new state record carp, weighing 53.65 pounds, was caught by Patrick Johnson of Toledo, Ohio in the Sandusky County portion of Lake Erie’s waters. Johnson arrowed the carp June 9, 2013, using a fish point tethered with 200 lb. test Fast Flight line. Johnson’s record carp is 45 inches long and 32-1/4 inches in girth. His catch replaces the previous state bowfishing record carp that was arrowed in Sandusky Bay by Rich Cady on May 28, 2008, weighing 47.65 pounds and measuring 38 inches long.

Ohio’s record fish are determined on the basis of weight only. Ohio’s state record fish are certified by the Outdoor Writers of Ohio State Record Fish Committee with assistance from fisheries biologists with the Ohio Division of Wildlife. Biologists from the Ohio Division of Wildlife District 2 office in Findlay conthe firmed identification of Johnson’s catch. For more information on Ohio’s state record fish program contact Fred Snyder, Chairman, OWO State Record Fish Committee, 754 Co. Rd. 126, Fremont, OH 43420, phone (419) 3320777, email ,

Ohio fishing forecast Weekly fishing report CENTRAL OHIO O'Shaughnessy Reservoir (Delaware County) Saugeyes can be caught using trolling worm harnesses and small crankbaits in the south end of the reservoir. Try fishing the flats at dawn and dusk for good results. Bluegills are being caught in the north end and on shallow flats of the lake using wax worms and night crawlers. Largemouth bass are being found lake-wide around shoreline cover. Also fish secondary points and riprap areas. Try crankbaits, spinner baits, and tube baits in morning and evening for best results. Crappies have moved to deeper water, target drop offs into the old river channel. NORTHWEST OHIO Bressler Reservior (Allen County) - This reservoir is located outside the city of Lima, one mile south of State Route 81 and one mile north of State Route 117 on Kemp and Grubb Roads. Bresler Reservoir has a surface area of 582-acres. Its maximum

depth is 44-feet near the northeast corner, with an average depth of 27feet. An underwater island adjacent to the conservation pool along the southern shoreline has shallower depths to 10-feet. This shallower water provides better food production than the deeper waters of the reservoir and serves as a fish concentration device. The only aquatic vegetation beds in the reservoir are around this underwater island and in the shoreline area south of the boat ramp. Bluegill can be caught along the reservoir's entire shoreline; however, anglers usually have the best success at the east end of the north shore. Walleye can be caught along the drop-off all along the shoreline, or near the underwater island. Try drifting or trolling worm harnesses or crankbaits in the morning and evenings. SOUTHWEST OHIO East Fork Lake (Clermont County) - Crappies are being caught by anglers using live minnows or jigs tipped with Power-

Bait. Try fishing in and around structure such as brush piles and fallen trees. Keep the bait below nine feet deep. Channel catfish are being caught using chicken liver as bait. Keep the bait under a bobber and off of the bottom. Channel catfish are being caught off of Tunnel Mill. CJ Brown (Clark County) - Walleye anglers are reporting success trolling deep diving lures. Try keeping the lures between nine and 14-feet. LAKE ERIE Western Basin Walleye fishing was good over the past week until recent windy weather limited fishing opportunities (as of 7/2). The best areas were N of West Sister Island, Northwest Reef (W of North Bass Island), and American Eagle Shoal (SW of Kelleys Island). Trollers have been catching fish on worm harnesses or with divers and spoons. Drifters are using worm harnesses with bottom bouncers or are casting mayfly rigs. • Yellow perch fishing

was good over the past week until recent windy weather limited fishing opportunities (as of 7/2). The best areas have been around the Toledo water intake, NE of West Sister Island, "C" can of the Camp Perry firing range, between South Bass Island and Green Island, and one mile E of the Kelleys Island airport. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. • Smallmouth Bass fishing has been very good around South Bass Island. Anglers are using soft-craws, tube jigs, and crankbaits. Largemouth bass fishing has also been good in harbors and nearshore areas around Catawba and Marblehead. Central Basin Walleye fishing has been good W of the Huron dumping grounds, at the weather buoy, 1.5 miles N of Beaver Creek, nearshore from Sheffield to Avon point, in 61-65 feet of water N of Gordon Park in Cleveland, and in 4042' of water NE of Cha-

grin River. Fishing has been excellent in 68-70' of water NE of Geneva and in 65-72 feet of water NW of the Ashtabula. Anglers are trolling dipsy and jet divers with worm harnesses and yellow, orange, pink, copper and purple spoons. There has also been excellent fishing nearshore in 12-24 feet of water NW of Ashtabula and off Conneaut. Anglers are drifting Erie Dearies. • Yellow perch fishing has been excellent in 37 feet of water N of Wildwood State Park, in 33 feet of water N of Chagrin River, in 39-47' of water NW of Fairport Harbor (the hump) and in 45-48 feet of water N of the Conneaut. Shore anglers are catching a few fish off the E. 55 St pier in Cleveland and the long pier on the Grand River. Spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. • Smallmouth bass fishing has been excellent in 15 to 25 feet of water around harbor areas in Cleveland, Fairport Harbor, Geneva,

Ashtabula and Conneaut. Largemouth bass are also being caught in the same areas. Anglers are using soft-craws and leeches. • White Bass has been good in the evenings off Euclid Beach and Sims Park in Euclid. Anglers are using agitators with jigs and small spoons. • Rock Bass are being caught off the breakwalls in Fairport Harbor. Channel Catfish has been very good along the Grand River. Anglers are using chicken livers and large chubs. The water temperature is 69 degrees off of Toledo and 68 degrees off of Cleveland according to the nearshore marine forecast.
