Spacey helps make TV history with ‘House of Cards’

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kevin Spacey loves being part of what he calls “a new paradigm”: Internet television that’s just as compelling and well produced as anything on a cable or broadcast channel. Spacey was nominated for an Emmy Award Thursday for his leading role in “House of Cards,” the Netflix original series that collected nine bids in all.See Entertainment, Page B11

A year later Colo. still healing AURORA, Colo. (AP) — Some recited the names of the dead. Some did good deeds for their neighbors. And some practiced yoga, walked through nature, or simply talked. Coloradans embraced ways to heal Saturday as they marked the anniversary of the Aurora movie theater massacre with a city-sponsored “Day of Remembrance.” It was one year ago that a gunman opened fire into a packed midnight screening of the Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises.” The rampage lasted less than two minutes but left deep wounds

that still ache in Aurora, Colorado’s third-largest city which spreads out across the rolling plains on Denver’s eastern side. Twelve people died, including a 6-year-old girl. Seventy were hurt, some of them paralyzed. Countless others inside the theater and out bear the invisible wounds of emotional trauma. Parents, siblings and survivors of those slain attended a morning ceremony of prayer, song and remembrance outside Aurora’s city hall. Several hundred people — including police, fire personnel and members of Colorado’s con-

gressional delegation — bowed their heads as the names of dead were read. A small bell tolled after each. The Hinkley High School choir sang “Amazing Grace.” “One year ago, the peace of our community was shattered,” Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan said. “We are still seeking justice.” “It is important for us to remember that one senseless act does not, cannot and will not define us as a comAP Photo munity,” Hogan added.

Renovating The Rec Big things in store for youth center

Melanie Yingst Staff Writer

Hatteras Island — fickle but alluring

TROY —With a list a mile long, Troy Rec’s executive director Nicole Hanes sees the potential for a revitalization of Troy’s oldest teen youth center beyond the dated paint and second-hand furniture. A safe haven for Troy’s youth for more than 72 years — all under the same roof — the Troy Rec is gearing up for a complete face lift, inside and out. Hanes gave a tour of

the teen center last week, pointing out years of crumbling walls, waterdamaged ceiling tiles and dated paint schemes. With a wave of her hands, Hanes shared how everything in sight will be changed to give the youth center a fresh new look for the future. Hanes bursts with excitement with the lists of possibilities for the future look of the Troy Rec. “It’s time,” Hanes said as

she gave a tour of the building. “We went through a strategic planning process with the board with the whole idea of ‘How can we liven things up again?’” With help from Brian Rason from The Ohio State University extension office, Troy Rec facilitated focus groups with feedback from the overall community, as well as students from city of Troy teens, to find out what needed to be done

in order to attract more people to the Troy Rec. The number one request? A total overhaul to the interior of the building. “This space has looked this way for years,” Hanes said. “The survey from the community came back and said the main reason they don’t use The Rec is because of the physical condition of the space.” After grants and funds are secured, a complete

Hatteras Island along North Carolina’s Outer Banks is a fickle but alluring place. The island juts into the Atlantic, making it a bull’s-eye for high winds, waves and the occasional hurricane. Cautious vacationers listen to weather reports regularly to make sure they don’t need to evacuate ahead of an approaching storm. In August 2011, Hurricane Irene closed the only road across a bridge to the island, N.C. See Travel, Page B4

renovation and security system will revive the Troy Rec which has been part of the community since the 1930s. Hanes explained several of the capital improvement projects in phase one. In the plans, Hanes said a prep kitchen will be part of phase one to expand the facility’s use for more community events. The prep kitchen, along with new bathrooms and lounge area are just among a few of the changes in store for the Troy Rec located at 11 N. Market St. in historic downtown Troy. • See CENTER on page 2

The Rec Director Nicole Hanes points out the deterioration in one of the hallways at the facility Friday in Troy.

Looking for a sweet way to support the Troy Rec to raise funds for its renovation? During the Gentlemen of the Road musical festival, Troy Rec will host a pancake breakfast for the community and concert goers on Aug. 30, Aug. 31 and Sept. 1.

Across U.S., people rally for Trayvon ATLANTA (AP) — One week after a jury found George Zimmerman not guilty in the death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, people gathered for nationwide rallies to press for changes to selfdefense laws and for federal civil rights charges against the former neighborhood watch leader. The Florida case has become a flashpoint in separate but converging national debates over selfdefense, guns, and race relations. Zimmerman, who successfully claimed that he was protecting himself when he shot Martin, identifies himself as Hispanic. Martin was black. “It’s personal,” said Cincinnati resident Chris Donegan, whose 11-yearold son wore a black hoodie to the rally, as Martin did when he died. “Anybody who is black with kids, Trayvon Martin became our son.” The Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network organized the “Justice for Trayvon” rallies and vigils outside federal buildings in

at least 101 cities: from New York and Los Angeles to Wichita, Kan., and Atlanta, where people stood in the rain at the base of the federal courthouse, with traffic blocked on surrounding downtown streets. Chants rang out across the rallies. “Justice! Justice! Justice! … Now! Now! Now!” ”We won’t forget.” ”No justice! No peace!” Many also sang hymns, prayed and held hands. And plenty of participants carried signs: “Who’s next?” “I am Trayvon Martin.” ”Enough Is Enough.” Most rallies began at noontime. In New York, hundreds of people — including music superstars Jay-Z and Beyonce, as well as Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton — gathered in the heat. Fulton told the crowd she was determined to fight for societal and legal changes needed to ensure that black youths are no longer viewed with suspicion because of their skin color. “I promise you I’m going to

work for your children as well,” she said to the rally crowd. At a morning appearance at Sharpton’s headquarters in Harlem, she implored people to understand that the tragedy involved more than Martin alone. “Today it was my son. Tomorrow it might be yours,” she said. In addition to pushing the Justice Department to investigate civil rights charges against Zimmerman, Sharpton told supporters he wants to see a rollback of stand-yourground self-defense laws. “We are trying to change laws so that this never, ever happens again,” Sharpton said. Stand-your-ground laws are on the books in more than 20 states, and they go beyond many older, traditional self-defense statutes. In general, the laws eliminate a person’s duty to retreat in the face of a serious physical threat. Zimmerman relied on a traditional self-defense argument and didn’t invoke stand-your-ground,

though the judge included a provision about it in instructions allowing jurors to consider it as a legitimate offense. And race wasn’t discussed in front of the jury. But the two topics have dominated public discourse about the case, and came up throughout Saturday’s rallies. Part of Sharpton’s comments echoed those made by President Barack Obama on the case Friday. “Racial profiling is not as bad as segregation, but you don’t know the humiliation of being followed in a department store,” Sharpton said. In Indianapolis, the Rev. Jeffrey Johnson told about 200 attendees that the nationwide effort is about making life safer for young black men. Johnson said young black men still are endangered by racial profiling, and he compared Zimmerman’s acquittal to that of four white officers in the beating of black motorist Rodney King in 1992. • See TRAYVON on page 2

Hanes said phase one of three is almost complete with a new awning and tuck pointing work done to the exterior of the building. Once grants are secure, flooring, painting, demolition and new furnishing will freshen up the teen center of the Troy Rec. During the renovation, the upstairs preschool program will continue without being disrupted, Hanes said. THe total cost for the first phase is $70,000. Work includes a total overhaul of the game room with new carpet and fresh walls with wainscoting to replace the carpeted walls. “This is the space getting the most attention,” Hanes said Friday.”There’s going to be a cafe, lounge area and social area through here. It’s going to look completely different when its done.” Other changes include restructuring the concession stand area where Hanes said will be used to prepare food for community events and to as serve as a full-service food stand for teens once a vendor license is obtained. New cabinets, counter tops, microwave will be part of the new prep kitchen. Hanes said a fullservice stove is not in the plans due to most catering services needing just a space to reheat prepared food. Birthday parties and church groups have used the space in the past, but Hanes said she hopes the center will be able to attract

more community events with its fresh new look. Other design changes include computer centers which will be divided into two groups. One for homework, research and tutoring in the front portion of the building and a second computer center for entertainment and casual use, Hanes said. The second phase includes addressing the exterior of the building, namely the brick and block work which has had moisture seeping through interior walls for years, Hanes said. Some of the work has been completed and the second phase of the renovation is estimated at $115,000. “It’s been a long time coming,” Hanes said, pointing out the spongy paint pockets on the stairwell walls where moisture has been trapped through layers and layers of paint. “There’s a lot of masonry work to be done to the brick,” Hanes said. The gym area downstairs will expand and have a new floor laid on top of the existing flooring. Stairwells will get new treads and fresh coat of paint as well. SAFE AND SECURE The final phase of the Troy Rec restoration is to install a video security system to make the entire building more safe and secure for the students and staff. “Now that we have a day

preschool, we really need this,” Hanes said. “We have kids and you have to be on top of your game.” The security system is expected to cost $30,000. Hanes said Troy Rec membership is up after waiving the $5 fee and looking for more input for new and relevant programming during her first year as director. “We had an average of 65 kids at the end of the year which is up from last year’s numbers,” Hanes said. Summer traffic is slow, but also is higher with up to 15 kids in the center during its summer hours. Hanes said during her summer internship in 2012, only four to five students visited the Troy Rec in the summer. Hanes invited anyone from the community to tour the building before work begins after Labor Day. If all grants are secured, work from all three phases could be complete by next spring, Hanes said. The Troy Rec’s website also has a fresh new look. The website was designed by Troy High School and Upper Valley Career Center student Kalen Ulmes. Ulmes designed the new website for the Troy Rec as part of her capstone project at the UVCC. For more information, to schedule an appointment to tour the Troy Rec or to see Ulmes website redesign, visit

“The verdict freed George Zimmerman, but it condemned America more,” said Johnson, pastor of the Eastern Star Church in Indianapolis and a member of the board of directors of the National Action Network. In Miami, Tracy Martin spoke about his son. “This could be any one of our children,” he said. “Our mission now is to make sure that this doesn’t happen to your child.” He recalled how he vowed to Trayvon as he lay in his casket that he would seek justice. “I will continue to fight for Trayvon until the day I die,” he said. Shantescia Hill held a sign in Miami that read: “Every person deserves a safe walk home.” The 31-yearold mother, who is black, said, “I’m here because our children can’t even walk on the streets without fearing for their lives.” In his remarks Friday, Obama said it’s a reality for black men in American to “be followed in a department store” while shopping or to walk down the street and “hear the car doors lock.” The nation’s first black president said he had both experiences

before he rose to social and political prominence. At the New Orleans rally, La’Monte Johnson shared some of the same experiences. The California native said he’s been stopped multiple times by police and handcuffed “because I fit the description of someone they were looking for,” though he noted charges were never filed against him. “You can be the greatest black guy around, but you can’t get away from it,” he said. “You’re not equal.” Attorney General Eric Holder announced this week that his department would investigate whether Zimmerman could be charged under federal civil rights laws. Such a case would require evidence that Zimmerman harbored racial animosity against Martin. Most legal experts say that would be a difficult charge to bring. Zimmerman’s lawyers have said their client wasn’t driven by race, but by desire to protect his neighborhood. Holder said the shooting demonstrates the need to reexamine stand-yourground laws.

Shooting n Continued from page A1

Gov. John Hickenlooper told the crowd that many people still struggle with unanswered questions. “I know I do,” Hickenlooper said. Dr. Camilla Sasson, an emergency room physician at the University of Colorado, struggled through tears as she recounted the efforts of police and medical personnel to save lives. “It is absolutely a miracle that 58 people survived that night,” she said. Mourners clutched white roses and, as the ceremony ended, laid them beneath a large wreath bearing the inscription, “In memory of those lost and those whose lives were forever changed.”

After the ceremony, residents volunteered for projects — tending a community garden, sorting food bank donations, donating blood. Spiritual and mental health counselors were available, along with art therapy projects and poetry readings. Several hundred yards from City Hall, people visited 12 crosses erected near the cinema where the attack took place. James Holmes, accused of the shooting, was arrested outside the theater in the aftermath of the rampage. Holmes has been in custody since the shooting and has been charged with murder, attempted murder and a list other offenses. He has pleaded not guilty by reason of

insanity. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. Democratic state Rep. Rhonda Fields, whose district includes the theater, said she is still numb and in mourning. “It hasn’t fully mended after a year,” she said. Fields said she wasn’t surprised by that. Her son, Javad MarshallFields, and his fiancee were shot to death in 2005 to keep MarshallFields from testifying in a murder trial. “I’m all too familiar to losing someone to gun violence,” Fields said. On Friday and Saturday, Fields and other volunteers read the names of more than 2,500 people killed in gun-related violence in the U.S. since the Newtown, Conn., massa-

cre in December. The last volunteer to read names was Stephen Barton, who was wounded last year in the theater shooting. Immediately after Barton was finished, about 40 volunteers held a moment of silence at 12:38 a.m. Saturday, the time the theater shooting began. The silence lasted 82 seconds to represent the 12 people killed and the 70 wounded. The ceremony at Cherry Creek State Park in Aurora was sponsored by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, not the city of Aurora. A gun rights group, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, contended the event wrongly politicized a tragedy to promote gun control, so it staged a counter-rally

nearby. Hoping to capitalize on the anniversary, the Mayors Against Illegal Guns Action Fund began running a TV ad Saturday in eight cities featuring Barton. In it, Barton describes his confusion during the attack and says he wondered afterward, “Why it had to happen to us at all? And who’ll be next?” The spot is running in Denver, Washington, D.C., and six cities in states represented by U.S. senators who in April voted against a failed bill to expand background checks for gun purchases: Las Vegas; Manchester, N.H.; Phoenix; Missoula and Billings, Mont.; and Little Rock, Ark. After Saturday’s Aurora ceremony, some residents had their photo taken with police Chief Dan Oates, whose department won praise for its response a year ago. “It was a searing event for the police department as well as the whole community,” Oates said. But he insisted many officers have recovered from the trauma and want to move on. “I think we’re at that point,” Oates said.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Los Angeles Times on James B. Comey Jr. to possibly head the FBI:

James B. Comey Jr., President Obama’s nominee to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has an ideal resume for the position — he served as a federal prosecutor and deputy attorney general — and the fact that he served in a Republican administration adds a desirable aspect of bipartisanship to the nomination. Although the FBI director is a presidential appointee, Congress has decided that he should be more insulated from politics than the typical executive branch official. That’s why the director serves a 10-year term that overlaps presidential administrations. There is one aspect of Comey’s record that is troubling, and it received appropriate attention at his confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee. In 2004 Comey famously threatened to resign as George W. Bush’s deputy attorney general if a secret electronic surveillance program wasn’t put on sounder legal footing. But in a 2005 email, he said he concurred with a memorandum allowing waterboarding and other “enhanced interrogation techniques” that

by any reasonable construction amounted to torture. (He did object to a related memo authorizing the uses of those techniques in combination.) The 2005 memos by Steven G. Bradbury, head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, were among several opinions issued by the department during the Bush administration that adopted a strained reading of laws against torture in order to enable the Central Intelligence Agency to subject suspected terrorists to waterboarding, stress positions and other inhumane and degrading methods. Comey told the Judiciary Committee that when he first learned about waterboarding. … Waterboarding, fortunately, is no longer a live issue. A law enacted in December 2005 requires military interrogators to adhere to the Army Field Manual, which bans most enhanced interrogation techniques, and President Obama by executive order has imposed the same restrictions on the CIA. The FBI, which Comey has been nominated to lead, always had a dim view of the CIA’s interrogation practices. Still, despite Obama’s suggestion that the war against terror-

ism is entering a new phase, it’s possible that in this administration or the next one, overzealous bureaucrats will again propose policies or legal theories that cut legal or constitutional corners in the cause of protecting the public. Before confirming Comey, the Senate should satisfy itself that he would resist such proposals.

Kansas City Star on a Pakistan dangerous to all:

The recently leaked internal Pakistan government report on the 2011 U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden affirms President Barack Obama’s decision not to alert the Pakistani government before sending in Navy Seals. The report found “complacency, ignorance, incompetence, irresponsibility and possibly worse at various levels inside and outside the government,” to say nothing of a culture of corruption and indifference to crime. To have brought such a government into the planning process would have assured mission failure. The Al-Jazeera news agency acquired the 337-page report and published it on its website

this week at In response to the report, Talat Aslam, senior editor of The News in Karachi, told the Christian Science Monitor that it reveals Pakistan to be in “complete shambles.” “No one,” he said, “comes out completely competent. The military, civilians, revenue department — it is one big bunch of real incompetence.” The picture of Pakistan that emerges from this internal report is so bleak that the U.S. and countries around the world should immediately renew efforts to contain the damage such a weakly governed nuclear power could do. But the list of what needs to change in Pakistan is so long that it must be disheartening to even the most optimistic diplomat. Since the country was formed in 1947 through partition from India, its history has been marked by aggression against India and Kashmir and a series of leaders unable to create permanent stability. The new report demonstrates that plenty of work will be needed to stabilize that dangerous country and provide the kind of competent government the Pakistani people deserve.

Governor front, center in Detroit bankruptcy DETROIT (AP) — Seven governors came and went during the decadeslong decay of Michigan’s largest city that culminated with a humiliating collapse into financial ruin. It’s the eighth, former business executive and relative political novice Rick Snyder, who is aggressively tying his legacy to the prospects of a Detroit turnaround. When he took office, Snyder pushed for more powers for the state to intervene in distressed cities and schools. After voters repealed the law last November, he ignored critics and signed another one. He also hired the city’s turnaround specialist and, nearly four months later, blessed the request to file for bankruptcy. For the man with the

“one tough nerd” moniker, it’s the latest bold decision in a 2 ½-year stretch that’s remarkable for the sheer breadth and pace at which Snyder has moved. He’s again in the national spotlight just a half-year after making Michigan — the bastion of the auto industry and organized labor — a right-to-work state, a move that pollsters say led a drop in his approval ratings. Though the impact of the bankruptcy filing on Snyder’s 2014 re-election may be difficult to predict, it’s still a legacy definer that’s being watched not only in Michigan but also by Wall Street and other elected officials across the country. Snyder, a former venture capitalist and computer company CEO, has

no known presidential aspirations. “I don’t spend time dwelling on my legacy. I just try to do my job well,” the Republican governor told The Associated Press in an interview. “That’s relentless positive action. No blame, no credit. Just simply solve the problem. “Here was a problem 60 years in the making. The can was being kicked down the road for far too long. It was time to say enough was enough. Let’s stop, let’s stabilize, let’s grow.” Detroit’s bankruptcy could last at least through summer or fall 2014, when Snyder is expected to ask voters for another term. “I deeply respect the citizens of Detroit,” he said. “They along with the other 9 million people in


Dennis Talbert walks by an abandoned house in Brightmoor, on Detroit northwest side, Friday. Brightmoor is one of the city’s more blighted neighborhoods and improving Brightmoor is a battle Talbert has been waging for several years, pleading for city officials to raze rows of vacant houses on Heyden Street, and even helping to board up some. None have been torn down, “Don’t think the trickle-down theory works in Brightmoor,” Talbert said. “The whole issue of Detroit in bankruptcy will not impact poor people. Only when organizations start moving our way will those houses be removed.”

our state hired me to do this job. They’re my customers. This was a tough step, a difficult decision, but it’s the right decision.” The first-term governor, perhaps more than any other state’s chief executive, hasn’t been afraid to confront mounting retiree pension and health care costs hampering state and city budgets. He’s done that mainly by signing laws making public workers pay more of their health costs, ending retiree health care for new hires and enticing teachers to contribute more toward their future pensions. But the stakes could be higher with the Detroit intervention under Michigan’s emergency manager law. Eric Scorsone, a

Michigan State University economist and expert on government finances, said while Snyder helped revise the law to make it one of the toughest in the country, bankruptcy likely was inevitable even under the old law — unless creditors had voluntary agreed to accept far less than what they’re owed. “Other governors may have taken different approaches. But even under the old law, if we had a different governor, it’s pretty obvious something would have had to be done,” he said. Scorsone said many other U.S. cities have issues similar to Detroit, though not on the same scale. Other states will be watching to see what happens in part because

Snyder — not local elected officials — is taking responsibility for improving public safety and other basic needs, he said. “I think it’s aggressive in the sense that most states don’t intervene in local affairs to the same extent,” Scorsone said. Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero, a Democrat who lost to Snyder in the 2010 election, said Snyder “definitely” deserves credit if Detroit emerges in better shape, especially in providing everyday services. “It’s bold and decisive. You’ve got to give him credit, however late,” Bernero said, adding that Snyder should have intervened in Detroit within three months of taking office in 2011.

Longtime foster dad always saw kids ‘worth saving’ LAKEVILLE, Minn. (AP) — Give him your troubled and your troublemakers, the ones on the fast track to no good. The ones with drug problems and rap sheets. The ones nobody else seems to want. For 37 years, Bill Feidt has taken them all. Feidt has ferried them to probation hearings, Alcoholics Anonymous and even the dentist. He’s taken them in for a few months or a few years. He’s taken them in at 1 a.m. when they’re acting up somewhere else. He’s put them to work on his Lakeville hobby farm and called them “sir,” even when they call him four-letter words. He’s seen them off to college, to the Marines — and if things went wrong, to prison, from where they send letters and call him collect. He’s one of the few people who will answer. Soon, he’ll see the last ones off, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported (http://bit. ly/18hnZy7). The 72-year-old Feidt is retiring this summer after nearly four decades as a foster parent. Those who know him describe him as even-handed, compassionate, fair and tough, wise from experience — and, most of all, irreplaceable. Feidt isn’t sure about all of that, calling himself just one piece of a much larger support system. But he’s sure about the philosophy that’s guided him along the way. “God don’t make trash,” Feidt said. “These kids are worth something and they’re worth saving.” Decades ago — before he became the most sought-after foster parent in Dakota County, before his hobby farm in rural Lakeville became a sanctuary for wayward boys — Bill Feidt needed saving. He was “a misguided guided missile” from south Minneapolis, as he puts it. He was intimately familiar with the judicial system. As an adult, he sold cars; as a teenager, he stole them.

In this July 9 photo, with the help of two teenage boys he is currently fostering, Lakeville, Minn. resident Bill Feidt, 72, uses his tractor to move a large shrub from one area of his hobby farm to another in Lakeville, Minn. Give him your troubled and your troublemakers, the ones on the fast track to no good. The ones with drug problems and rap sheets. The ones nobody else seems to want. For 37 years, Bill Feidt has taken them all.

His home life was stable enough but plagued by alcohol issues. At 18, he joined the Marines Corps Reserves at the nudging of the court system. It instilled in him a sense of discipline and routine he had lacked. But it didn’t derail his own burgeoning alcohol abuse. After five years in the military, “I was still out performing,” he said. “I had a full-time job, I was paying taxes, I was being a human being, but my behavior was still a little dippy.” He found himself in and out of rehab more than once. Finally, at age 32, while climbing a flight of stairs in yet another treatment facility during yet another low point, “I had this epiphany,” he said. “It occurred to me,” he said, “that when I was looking in the mirror, I might have been looking at the problem.”

That was the last time. A few clean years later, Feidt was sitting in a new house in Lakeville, looking out the window onto a generous yard. It seemed like an awful lot of space and comfort. He and his wife found themselves thinking: “We had a lot more to give.” The first boy came from Scott County. His home was as broken as it could be: His father was dead and his mother was in prison for killing him. The boy showed up with a horse in tow. It was one of his last worldly possessions. The child and the horse, Feidt recalls, “were a package.” Feidt had called the county saying he had extra room in his home. It was just before his daughter Laura was born. He asked if they might have an adolescent he

and his wife could take in. Before anything was arranged, Feidt disclosed his history with alcoholism and ongoing recovery. “I was kind of thinking that would cause them some apprehension,” he said. Instead, “it seemed to accelerate things.” That was in 1976. Feidt “thought it would be one kid.” It wasn’t. There was another, and another and another. Over the decades they’ve reached a few hundred — Feidt lost track of the exact count. He’s licensed for four at a time and is usually full or close to it. Right now, he has three teens staying with him. Some of them, like the first, are placed with him via county social services because their home lives are unstable, unsafe or broken down. Many others come from the juvenile court system, often as an alternative to a more severe step such as juvenile detention. Stays range from a few days for boys on short-term placement to a few years. “He was taking these really difficult, challenging kids, and he was able to manage them,” said Matt Bauer, community corrections manager for Dakota County. They are often adolescents who hadn’t been successful managing their behavior in even the most structured programs, Bauer said. Many of them have a history of clashing with adults and are on probation for offenses ranging from drug issues to robbery. But prosecutors don’t always want to simply lock them up. Karen Henke, a prosecutor in Dakota County who handles juvenile cases, has sent many teens to Feidt. His home is “one of our few alternatives to placement in a juvenile detention center,” she said. And if they can’t make it in his home, “that says something.”

Charges in case of men found held in Texas home Police said the men were living in “deplorable conditions” after being lured by promises of food and cigarettes. Three of the men — ages 80, 74 and 65 — were taken to a hospi-

tal Friday; they were listed in stable condition. A fourth man, 54, who told officers he was a military veteran, declined treatment but authorities said he would

be cared for at a Veterans Administration hospital. He told reporters Friday that he was living in the house and not the garage, although said he was sleeping on the floor.

Homicide Sgt. Steve Murdock said Saturday in a department statement that the men said Jones “used force and coercion to keep them there for the purpose of monetary gain.” Investigators were still trying to determine how long the men lived there. Four women were also

found living in the house, three of whom appeared to have mental disabilities, police said. Their living conditions were described as more normal. A neighbor called authorities Friday morning after expressing concern about men in the house in north Houston.

“Traditional Elegance In A Country Setting” 40338174


HOUSTON (AP) — A 31-year-old man was charged Saturday in connection with the discovery of four malnourished men being held against their will in a dungeon-like Houston home. Walter Renard Jones faces two counts of injury to the elderly. He is being held without bond in the Harris County Jail and set to appear in court Monday. Houston Police Department spokeswoman Jodi Silva said it’s possible additional charges will be filed as the investigation continues. The exact charges are decided by the district attorney’s office. Police said Friday that the men told investigators they were forced to live in the garage — which had one chair, no bed and a possibly malfunctioning air conditioner — so their captor could cash their public assistance checks. “We’re still in the beginning in the investigation,” Silva said. “We still need to determine things like where the money was going.” Court records did not list an attorney for Jones. Records showed he previously had been charged with theft, marijuana possession and failing to register as a sex offender. Property records show the purple-trimmed home is owned by Essie Mae Scranton, 83. Attempts to reach her were unsuccessful. The Houston Chronicle reported that since December 2008, the home has been registered to a nonprofit corporation called Regina’s Faith Ministries, directed by Regina Jones, 57, also known as Regina Nelson. Silva said Saturday that Walter Jones is Regina Jones’ grandson.

Remembering Helen Thomas

Woman’s Six Flags roller coaster death probed ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Investigators will try to determine if a woman who died while riding a roller coaster at a Six Flags amusement park in North Texas fell from the ride after some witnesses said she wasn’t properly secured. The accident happened just after 6:30 p.m. Friday at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington. Park spokeswoman Sharon Parker confirmed that a woman died while riding the Texas Giant roller coaster — dubbed the tallest steel-hybrid coaster in the world — but did not specify how she was killed. Witnesses told area media outlets the woman fell. “We are committed to determining the cause of this tragic accident and will utilize every resource throughout this process,” Parker said in a statement Saturday. “It would be a disservice to the family to speculate regarding what transpired.” Arlington police Sgt. Christopher Cook, the department spokesman, referred all questions to Parker. Messages left for Parker by The Associated Press were not returned. Carmen Brown told The Dallas Morning News that she was waiting in line to get on the ride when the accident happened and witnessed the woman being strapped in. “She goes up like this. Then when it drops to come down, that’s when it (the safety bar) released and she just

WASHINGTON (AP) — Covering 10 presidents over five decades, Helen Thomas aged into a legend. She was the only reporter with her name inscribed on a chair in the White House briefing room — her own front row seat to history. Starting as a copy girl in 1943, when women were considered unfit for serious reporting, Thomas rose to bureau chief. Working at a news service, where writers expect obscurity, she became one of journalism’s most recognized faces. Thomas embraced her role as a Washington institution, doing cameos in movies, giving lectures, writing books about her life until the spotlight landed on inflammatory remarks she made about Israel. The uproar pushed her out of the White House press room at age 89. Thomas, 92, died surrounded by family and friends at her Washington apartment on Saturday, the family said in a statement. A friend, Muriel Dobbin, told The Associated Press that Thomas had been ill for a long time, and in and out of the hospital before coming home Thursday. Thomas made her name as a bulldog for United Press International in the great wire-service rivalries of old, and as a pioneer for women in journalism. She was persistent to the point of badgering. One White House press secretary described her questioning as “torture” — and he was one of her fans. In her later years, her refusal to conceal her strong opinions, even when posing questions to a president, and her public hostility toward Israel caused discomfort among colleagues. In 2010, that tendency ended her storied career at the White House. She told a rabbi making a video that Israeli Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and “go home” to Germany, Poland or the United States. The video circulated on the Internet and brought widespread condemnation of Thomas, forcing her to quit her job as a Hearst columnist. Months later, in January 2011, she started a column for a free weekly paper in a Washington suburb. In her long career, Thomas was indelibly associated with the ritual ending White House news conferences. She was often the one to deliver the closing line: “Thank you, Mister President” — four polite words that belied a fierce competitive streak. 40294267

tumbled,” Brown, of Arlington, told the newspaper. “They didn’t secure her right. One of the employees from the park — one of the ladies — she asked her to click her more than once, and they were like, ‘As long you heard it click, you’re OK.’ Everybody else is like, ‘Click, click, click.’ “Hers only clicked once. Hers was the only one that went down once, and she didn’t feel safe, but they let her still get on the ride,” Brown said. Six Flags said the ride will be closed as the investigation continues, and a concert scheduled for Saturday was canceled. The Texas Giant is 14 stories high, and has a drop of 79 degrees and a bank of 95 degrees. It can carry up to 24 riders. It first opened in 1990 as an all-wooden coaster but underwent a $10 million renovation to install steelhybrid rails and reopened in 2011. When the car that the woman had been riding in returned to the loading zone, two people got out and were visibly upset, Rockwell resident John Putman told the Fort Worth StarTelegram. “They were screaming, ‘My mom! My mom! Let us out, we need to go get her!” Putman told the newspaper. Also Friday, an Ohio amusement park’s thrill ride malfunctioned when a boat accidentally rolled backward down a hill and flipped over in water, injuring all seven people on

it. Operators stopped the Shoot the Rapids water ride after the accident, said officials with Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio. Six Flags Over Texas opened in 1961 and was the first amusement park in the Six Flags system. It is 17 miles west of downtown Dallas. The park’s first fatality happened in 1999. A 28-year-old Arkansas woman drowned and 10 other passengers were injured when a raft-like boat on the Roaring Rapids ride overturned in 2 to 3 feet of water. There were 1,204 ride-related injuries reported in the United States in 2011 — about 4.3 for every million visitors — according to the National Safety Council’s most recent data. Of those, 61 were deemed serious, the March 2013 report said, and roller coasters accounted for 405 injuries. Fatalities were not listed in the report, which was prepared for Alexandria, Va.-based International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions. Also, only 144 of the 383 amusement facilities with rides in the United States responded to the survey. A 2005 report to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimated just over four people died annually on amusement rides from 1987 to 2002. The estimate includes both mobile amusement park rides and fixed-site rides.

Her disdain for White House secrecy and dodging spanned five decades, back to President John Kennedy. Her freedom to voice her peppery opinions as a speaker and a Hearst columnist came late in her career. After she quit UPI in 2000 — by then an outsized figure in a shrunken organization — her influence waned. The Bush administration marginalized her, clearly peeved with a journalist who had challenged President George W. Bush to his face on the Iraq war and declared him the worst president in history. Thomas was accustomed to getting under the skin of presidents, if not to getting the cold shoulder. “If you want to be loved,” she said years earlier, “go into something else.” There was a lighter mood in August 2009, on her 89th birthday, when President Barack Obama popped into in the White House briefing room unannounced. He led the roomful of reporters in singing “Happy Birthday to You” and gave her cupcakes. As it happened, it was the president’s birthday too, his 48th. Thomas was at the forefront of women’s achievements in journalism. She was one of the first female reporters to break out of the White House “women’s beat” — the soft stories about presidents’ kids, wives, their teas and their hairdos — and cover the hard news on an equal footing with men. She became the first female White House bureau chief for a wire service when UPI named her to the position in 1974. She was also the first female officer at the National Press Club, where women had once been barred as members and she had to fight for admission into the 1959 luncheon speech where Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev warned: “We will bury you.” The belligerent Khrushchev was an unlikely ally in one sense. He had refused to speak at any Washington venue that excluded women, she said. Thomas fought, too, for a more open presidency, resisting all moves by a succession of administrations to restrict press access. Born in Winchester, Ky., to Lebanese immigrants, Thomas was the seventh of nine children. Her family moved to Detroit, and it was in high school there, after working on the student newspaper, that she decided she wanted to become a reporter. After graduating from Detroit’s Wayne University (now Wayne State University), Thomas headed straight for the nation’s capital. She landed a $17.50-a-week position as a copy girl, with duties that included fetching coffee and doughnuts for editors at the Washington Daily News. United Press, later United Press International, soon hired her to write local news stories for the radio wire. Her assignments were relegated at first to women’s news, society items and celebrity profiles. Her big break came after the 1960 election that sent Kennedy

SANDUSKY (AP) — State inspectors are at a popular Ohio amusement park to figure out how a boat on a thrill ride accidentally rolled backward down a hill and flipped over in water, injuring seven people. Cedar Point spokesman Bryan Edwards says the inspectors and officials at the Sandusky park are investigating what went wrong with the Shoot the Rapids water ride Friday. Six of the injured passengers were treated at the scene. The seventh was taken to a nearby hospital and was treated and release. The ride remains closed, but the park reopened Saturday.

She was sent to Palm Beach, Fla., to cover the vacation of the president-elect and his family. JFK’s successor, Lyndon Johnson, complained that he learned of his daughter Luci’s engagement from Thomas’s story. Bigger and better assignments would follow for Thomas, among them President Richard M. Nixon’s breakthrough trip to China in 1972. When the Watergate scandal began consuming Nixon’s presidency, Martha Mitchell, the notoriously unguarded wife of the attorney general, would call Thomas late at night to unload her frustrations at what she saw as the betrayal of her husband John by the president’s men. It was also during the Nixon administration that the woman who scooped so many others was herself scooped — by the first lady. Pat Nixon was the one who announced to the Washington press corps that Thomas was engaged to Douglas Cornell, chief White House correspondent for UPI’s archrival, The Associated Press. They were married in 1971. Cornell died 11 years later. Thomas stayed with UPI for 57 years, until 2000, when the company was purchased by News World Communications, which was founded by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, leader of the Unification Church. At age 79, Thomas was soon hired as a Washingtonbased columnist for newspaper publisher Hearst Corp. No longer a straight news reporter, she was freer to spout her opinions, but allowed to keep her front-and-center seat in the briefing room in deference to her long service. Hers was the only chair inscribed with the name of a reporter, instead of news organization. “What made Helen the ‘dean of the White House press corps’ was not just the length of her tenure, but her fierce belief that our democracy works best when we ask tough questions and hold our leaders to account,” Obama, the last president she covered, said in a statement. A self-described liberal, Thomas made no secret of her ill feelings for George W. Bush,

Pioneering reporter Helen Thomas aged into legend


By The Associated Press Here are five things to know about Helen Thomas, the groundbreaking White House correspondent, who died Saturday at age 92: 1. She was among the first women to cover hard news at the White House. Her journalism career started in 1943, an era when female reporters were confined to stories about presidents’ kids, wives, their teas and their hairdos. 2. Her big break came in Palm Beach IN 1960. She was sent by UPI to cover the vacation of President-elect John Kennedy and his family. 3. The Barrier she broke through in 1974. As United Press International’s White House bureau chief, she became the first woman in that role for a wire service. 4. the day she was scooped by a first lady. It was Pat Nixon who announced Thomas was engaged to Douglas Cornell, chief White House correspondent for the arch rival Associated Press. They married in 1971. 5. The comment about Israel that ended her career in 2010. “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine,” she told a rabbi who was interviewing her. “Remember, these people are occupied and it’s their land. It’s not Germany, it’s not Poland.” She soon retired from her job as a Hearst columnist.

In this Aug. 4, 1995, file photo, President Clinton “interviews” UPI White House correspondent Helen Thomas in the White House briefing room in Washington. Thomas, a pioneer for women in journalism and an irrepressible White House correspondent, has died Saturday. She was 92. a Republican. “He is the worst president in all of American history,” she told the Daily Breeze of Torrance, Calif. Thomas also was critical of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, asserting that the deaths of innocent people should hang heavily on Bush’s conscience. In March 2006, she confronted Bush with the proposition that “your decision to invade Iraq has caused the deaths of thousands of Americans and Iraqis” and that every justification for the attack proved false. “Why did you really want to go to war?” she demanded. When Bush began explaining his rationale, she interjected: “They didn’t do anything to you, or to our country.” Her strong opinions finally ended her career. After a visit to the White House, David Nesenoff, a rabbi and independent filmmaker, asked Thomas in May 2010 whether she had any comments on Israel. “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine,” she replied. “Remember, these people are occupied and it’s their land. It’s not Germany, it’s not Poland,” she continued. Asked where they should go, she answered, “They should go home.” When asked where’s home, Thomas replied: “Poland, Germany and America and everywhere else.” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs called them “offensive and reprehensible.” In a rare admonishment, the White House Correspondents Association said her words were “indefensible.” Many Jews were outraged by her suggestion that Israelis should “go home” to Germany, Poland and America because Israel was settled in 1948 by Jews who had survived or escaped Hitler’s attempt to kill all the Jews in Germany and neighboring conquered countries. Within days, she retired from

her job at Hearst — and from her famous seat in the White House briefing room. Not long after, Nicholas F. Benton, the owner and editor of the Falls Church, Va., News-Press approached her about writing again. Benton, who had published Thomas’ column for years when she was syndicated, said Thomas was initially dubious about continuing to write for the free weekly paper, which at the time had a circulation around 25,000. “She said, ‘You don’t want me. I’m poison,” he said in a telephone interview Saturday. He responded that he could handle any criticism, and her column started running in January 2011. She continued to write about national issues, from Social Security to the State of the Union address and the capital gains tax, which she blamed for creating “a bigger divide between the haves and the have-nots, leaving not much of a middle class in America.” Benton said he received more positive letters than negative ones by “quite a wide margin,” adding that she continued to be “sharp as a tack.” She wrote for the paper for a year, until her health prevented her from continuing. Thomas is survived by three sisters, and many nieces, nephews and cousins, according to her family. “We will always remember her for the passionate way she sought the truth, for her overwhelming love and generosity, and for her unfaltering faith in mankind,” her family said in a statement. Thomas is to be buried in Detroit, “the beloved city of her youth,” the family said. A memorial service in Washington is planned for October, according Charles J. Lewis, senior editor and former Washington bureau chief for Hearst News Service.

Egypt to reevaluate Syria ties after coup CAIRO (AP) — Egypt is reevaluating its relationship with Syria following the military’s ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, the country’s foreign minister said Saturday. In his first public comments since becoming Egypt’s top diplomat, Nabil Fahmy said Cairo continues to support the Syrian uprising but that Egypt has no intention of supporting a jihad — or holy war — in Syria. “Everything will be re-evaluated,” Fahmy told reporters in Cairo. Meanwhile, Jordan’s King Abdullah met with Egypt’s new leaders Saturday in the first visit by a head of state to Cairo since the popularly-backed military coup. A statement from Egypt’s presidency said the king voiced his support for the “national choices” made by Egyptians during a meeting with interim President Adly Mansour, the country’s army chief Abdel-Fatah el-Sissi and other high-level officials. Jordan’s government had been concerned with the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and disruptions to gas exports due to militant attacks on the pipeline in the northern Sinai Peninsula. The Jordanian offshoot of Egypt’s Brotherhood has driven street protests against the government in Amman. Jordanian officials are wary of the region’s wave of uprisings that began in 2011. Morsi, a Muslim Brotherhood member who came to power after the uprising against Hosni Mubarak, had made supporting the Syrian opposition in its fight against President Bashar Assad a cornerstone of his foreign policy. Cairo also is the official headquarters of the main Western-backed Syrian opposition group. Just weeks before Morsi was deposed on July 3, a senior presidential aide said authorities would not prevent Egyptians from traveling to Syria to join the rebel cause. Morsi also attended a rally on June 15 in which hard-line clerics called on Sunni Muslims to join the fight in Syria. Speaking at the rally, Morsi announced he was severing diplomatic ties with

Damascus. The foreign minister said Egypt is seeking a political solution to the three-year crisis in Syria, which has killed more than 90,000 people, according to the United Nations. “Egypt supports the (Syrian) revolution and the Syrian people’s right to live

were able to enter Egypt without a visa. The main Syrian opposition coalition has criticized the shift toward those seeking refuge in Egypt from the war, calling on authorities to ensure that “Syrian people living in Egypt, under such dire circumstances, are not used to achieve certain political ends.”

El-Beblawi described it as “a reprehensible crime that shames humanity.” ElBaradei asked: “When will we learn that violence aggravates problems and does not solve them?” No arrests in the shooting had been announced Saturday. Senior health ministry official Khaled el-Khatib said that doctors were examining the bodies of the slain protesters Saturday. The Brotherhood identified the victims and said they ranged in age from 20 to 45 years old. The group says two were killed by gunshot and one died after suffocating on tear gas. The Brotherhood said the assault “sheds light on the bloody nature of dictatorship and the police state under a military coup.” The group had called for Friday’s protests to demand Morsi be reinstated and to increase pressure on the new leadership. Among the policy changes in postcoup Egypt, the new foreign minister said Cairo is also “seriously assessing” its relations with the Syrian regime’s key regional backer Iran. Morsi moved to improve diplomatic ties with Iran when he reached out to Tehran in a bilateral deal to promote tourism and improve relations between the two countries. “We are neither enemies nor allies with anybody,” Fahmy said of Cairo’s ties with other nations. The foreign minister said Egypt is also looking at its relationship with Ethiopia and Turkey. Some Brotherhood officials have close business ties with Turkey and the country’s prime minister, wary of the pro-secular Turkish military’s intervention in politics, has condemned Morsi’s ouster as “unacceptable”. The ministry’s spokesman Badr AbdelAaty said Saturday Egypt is “very concerned” that Ethiopia has not replied to requests to take part in technical consultations in Cairo over its construction of a Nile dam. The project could leave Egypt with a dangerous water shortage. Before his ouster, Morsi had vowed “all options are open” in dealing with the dam’s construction.

in dignity within the framework of a democratic system and we will work to achieve that goal,” Fahmy said. While in office, Morsi launched an initiative with the aim of finding a regional political solution. Since Morsi’s ouster, his critics have accused Syrians living in Egypt of participating in the protests calling for him to be reinstated. Television networks critical of Morsi aired allegations that his Muslim Brotherhood backers were paying Syrian refugees to take part in pro-Morsi protests. Cairo’s new military-backed interim government swiftly imposed travel restrictions on Syrians, who for decades

The arrest of at least six Syrians accused of taking part in violent street clashes further fanned the flames. Clashes have erupted into violence several times since Morsi’s ouster, killing more than 60 people. The most recent incident occurred Friday night in the Nile Delta city of Mansoura when unidentified assailants opened fire at a Muslim Brotherhood-led march, sparking a melee that killed three female protesters, authorities said. Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi and Vice President Mohammed ElBaradei condemned the incident in separate posts on Twitter, vowing to bring the perpetrators to justice.

Reds edge Pirates, 5-4 CINCINNATI (AP) — Joey Votto drove in a pair of runs, and Shin-Soo Choo extended his hitting streak to a career-high 14 games on Saturday, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates that revolved around an early rain delay. The third-place Reds have won the first two games in the NL Central series, closing their gap with second-place Pittsburgh to two games. The Ohio River rivals have split their 12 games this season. Cincinnati’s Mat Latos (9-3) and Pittsburgh’s A.J. Burnett (4-7) had a tough time finding their control after a 1-hour, 17-minute delay in the middle of the first inning. Aroldis Chapman escaped a two-on threat in the ninth for his 23rd save in 26 chances. Latos gave up three runs in only five innings. Travis Snider’s pinch-hit RBI double cut it to 5-4 in the eighth, but Logan Ondrusek got Jose Tabata to ground out with the bases loaded, ending the rally. Chapman gave up an infield single by Andrew McCutchen to open the ninth and made a wild pickoff throw. Shortstop

Zack Cozart misplayed Pedro Alvaraez’s grounder for Cincinnati’s third error, leaving runners on first and third. The All-Star closer got a pop-up, then fanned Michael McKenry and Jordy Mercer to end it. Choo had a double and a single, extending the longest streak by a Reds player this season. Thirteen minutes after the first pitch, the umpires called for the tarp when a gust of wind blew through Great American Ball Park with Burnett warming up. Several members of the grounds crew were blown off their feet while wrestling the tarp into place. Burnett had a rough time getting restarted, allowing four runs right away. Three of them were set up by Mercer’s fielding error at second base. Votto got his 500th career RBI on the error, Brandon Phillips singled home a run, Cozart hit a sacrifice fly and Devin Mesoraco doubled for a 4-0 lead. Latos struck out to end the ninebatter inning — an hour and a half after he’d thrown his last pitch. Then, just like Burnett, Latos struggled to find his touch. Garrett Jones homered and

Cozart’s errant throw at shortstop let in a run in the second. McCutchen hit a solo homer in the fourth, his third homer in his last four games. Eleven of his 12 homers have been solos. The Pirates have five homers in the first two games of the series, all solo shots. Burnett didn’t allow another run until the sixth, when he walked Votto with the bases loaded on his 109th and final pitch. Cincinnati’s Jack Hannahan and Pittsburgh’s Starling Marte were hit by pitches, making it 21 batters plunked during the teams’ season series. It’s the most for any season series in the majors.

Wheelin’ and dealin’ Troy’s Kendall throws no hitter

Troy’s Zach Kendall and his father Matt have a deal. As long as Zach puts forth a diligent effort when it comes to his studies and baseball, he doesn’t have to find a summer job. Well, it appears that hard work is paying off. On July 6, Kendall, a member of the Raptor Elite, threw a no hitter against the Cincinnati Flash at Athletes In Action in Xenia. Kendall, who will be a senior at Troy High School, accomplished the feat with only 85 pitches thrown and struck out 14. His only blemish on the day was a hit batter in the first inning — the only thing that stopped him from throwing a perfect game. “I didn’t walk anyone, I only hit one batter, so that kind of kept my pitch count down,” Kendall said. “I’d rather hit him in the first than in the seventh.” “I am (proud of him),” said father Matt. “He’s had some struggles most people don’t know about. He’s had to work hard, and I’m pretty proud of him. He and I both don’t want him to be satisfied. School and baseball are his jobs. The deal we have is as long as he works hard at both, that means he doesn’t have to work in the summer.

Westwood leads British Open GULLANE, Scotland (AP) — Lee Westwood has contended enough in the majors that he can identify important moments, even if he could barely see his ball. He had a one-shot lead over Tiger Woods, standing in grass up to his knees in the dunes left of the par-3 16th hole. It was one of the few bad shots Westwood hit Saturday at Muirfield, and by far his worst predicament. Westwood slashed at the ball and it didn’t reach the green. He used a putter to belt his next shot up the hill to 12 feet. What followed was a finish that allowed him to believe he was closer than ever to ending his 20-year pursuit of a major. Westwood poured in the putt to salvage bogey. He picked up two shots on Woods with a birdie on the next hole. He closed with a solid par, giving him a twoshot lead going into the final round, and most significant Sunday of his career.

NCAA rejects claims in concussion lawsuit CHICAGO (AP) — Rejecting claims made in a lawsuit concerning concussions, the NCAA said Saturday it has taken steps to protect student athletes from head injuries and that player safety is among the college sports association’s core principles. Attorneys suing the NCAA over its handling of head injuries asked a federal judge Friday to let them expand the lawsuit to include thousands of plaintiffs nationwide. The motion seeking class-action status was filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago, where the original lawsuit was filed in 2011 on behalf of former Eastern Illinois football player Adrian Arrington and several other former athletes. “Student-athlete safety is one of the NCAA’s foundational principles,” said spokeswoman Stacey Osburn. “The NCAA has been at the forefront of safety issues throughout its existence.” She said the association has addressed the issue of head injuries through a combination of playing rules, equipment requirements and medical practices. The NCAA does not believe the legal action is appropriate, Osburn said. Concussions have become a major concern in sports in recent years. The NFL, NHL and college football, among others, have implemented stricter rules on hits to the head and player safety. The NFL is involved in a lawsuit involving more than 4,000 former players seeking millions of dollars for problems they blame on head injuries suffered during their careers. • See NCAA on page 9

Woods in striking distance heading into final round

“That was probably the biggest momentum thing I did all day — walk off there with a bogey,” Westwood said. “That’s what’s been missing, making those putts. And back it up with a birdie at the next. Those are the sort of things you need to do.” Had he made putts like that, Westwood might not have missed the playoff at the U.S. Open that Woods won in 2008 at Torrey Pines. Or the playoff at Turnberry in 2009. He might even have been able to hold off Phil Mickelson at the Masters in 2010. Westwood is widely considered the best player of his generation without a major. Maybe that’s about to change.

Froome effectively wins Tour title ANNECY-SEMNOZ, France (AP) — Chris Froome has two hands firmly on the Tour de France trophy. All that remains is for the British rider to raise it above his head before cheering crowds in Paris on Sunday. The Team Sky rider retained his big race lead Saturday in the penultimate stage to ensure he will become Britain’s second successive champion after Bradley Wiggins. Only an accident or other freak mishap today on the largely ceremonial final ride to the Champs-Elysees could stop Froome from winning the 100th Tour. “It’s been an amazing journey for me, the race has been a fight every single day,” Froome said at the winner’s news conference which the Tour holds the evening before the final stage. “This Tour really has had everything. It really has been a special edition this year.” Froome, who was clearly superior and never looked really troubled in the threeweek race, finished third Saturday in a dramatic Stage 20 to the ski station of AnnecySemnoz in the Alps that decided the other podium placings. Nairo Quintana from Colombia won the stage and moved up to second overall. Joaquim Rodriguez from Spain rode in 18 seconds behind Quintana and moved up to third overall. Froome’s lead is more than five minutes over both of them. Froome said only when he passed the sign showing two kilometers (about a mile) to go on the final steep uphill did he allow himself to believe he’d won the Tour. “It actually became quite hard to concentrate,” he said. “A very emotional feeling.” Alberto Contador, who was second overall at the start of the day, struggled on that climb and dropped off the podium. Saturday’s 78-mile trek was the last of four successive stages in the Alps and the final significant obstacle Froome needed to overcome before Sunday’s usually relaxed ride to the finish in Paris. That 82-mile jaunt starts in Versailles, at the gates of its palace. Froome’s dominance at this Tour was such that this victory could very well be the first of several. At 28, he is entering peak years for a bike racer. He proved at this Tour that he excels both in climbs and time trials — skills essential for those who want to win cycling’s premier race. He also handled with poise and aplomb questions about doping in cycling and suspicions about the strength of his own performances. He insisted he raced clean. This Tour was the first since Lance Armstrong was stripped last year of his seven wins for serial doping. Froome said the scrutiny he faced has “definitely been a challenge” but was “100 percent understandable.” Whoever won this 100th Tour “was going to come under the same amount of scrutiny, the same amount of criticism,” he said. “I’m also one of those guys who have been let down by the sport.” Froome first took the race lead and the yel-


Britain’s Christopher Froome, wearing the overall leader’s yellow jersey, flashes a thumbs up and a big smile as crosses the finish of the 20th stage of the Tour de France cycling race Saturday over 125 kilometers (78.1 miles) with start in in Annecy and finish in Annecy-Semnoz, France.

low jersey that goes with it on Stage 8, when he won the climb to the Ax-3 Domaines ski station in the Pyrenees. On Sunday’s Stage 21, he will wear the yellow jersey for the 13th straight day. Froome said the low point of his Tour was when he ran short of energy on the second ascent of L’Alpe d’Huez this week. “A horrible feeling,” he said. The highlight, he said, was when he powered away from his rivals on Mont Ventoux in Provence and became the first yellow-jersey wearer to win a stage on that mammoth climb since the legendary five-time Tour winner Eddy Merckx in 1970. “That was an incredible moment, incredible.” Saturday’s stage did a big loop south of Annecy, through the mountains of Savoie between the lakes of Annecy and Bourget. This is cheese-making country, with lush Alpine pastures and dense, naturally cool forests. Quintana’s win also secured him the spotted jersey awarded to riders who harvest the most points on mountain climbs. He also retained the white jersey as the Tour’s best young rider. The 23-year-old wiped away tears in his stage winner’s news conference. “It was fabulous,” he said after winning on his national independence day. “It’s a very special day in Colombia. A big party and the whole of Colombia is celebrating.” With six miles still to ascend on the last and toughest of the day’s six climbs, Froome

put on a devastating turn of speed that left Contador gasping. Froome, Rodriguez and Quintana then rode as a trio, leaving Contador further and further behind. Quintana rode away in the last stretch for his first stage win at his first Tour. Contador placed seventh in the stage, laboring in more than two minutes behind Quintana. The two-time former champ ran out of legs after weeks of trying to keep up and pressure Froome. He dropped to fourth overall, more than seven minutes behind the Briton who was born in Kenya and who hopes his win will inspire African cyclists to believe that they, too, can turn professional. Of the 198 riders who started on the French island of Corsica on June 29, 170 have survived this far — meaning they could equal the Tour’s record for finishers, also 170, achieved in 2010. Uniquely for the 100th Tour, Stage 21 will set off in the late afternoon, so the race finishes more or less as the sun is setting behind the Arc de Triomphe. “The arrival on the Champs-Elysees will be immense,” Froome said. Froome said he didn’t know how many more Tours he might win because “I’m just thinking about here and now” but he added that he would like to keep coming back to the Tour “as long as I can.” Froome was runner-up last year, helping Wiggins to victory. Despite that, Froome said his teammate hasn’t contacted him during this Tour.


NCAA n Continued from page A8

Attached to the class-action request from those suing the NCAA is a report for the plaintiffs by a leading authority on concussions, Robert Cantu, who cites an internal NCAA survey from 2010. He said the NCAA found that nearly half of the college trainers who responded to the survey indicated they put athletes showing signs of a concussion back into the same game. “It is well settled in the scientific community that an athlete must never be returned to play on the same day after a concussion diagnosis,” said Cantu, who is medical director of the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research in Chapel Hill, N.C. The plaintiffs say the NCAA was lax in establishing a clear policy about dealing with concussions, leaving key decisions to individual schools or leagues. Arrington contends he suffered “numerous and repeated concussions” at Eastern Illinois. He is seeking unspecified monetary damages and changes in policy, including the establishment of a long-term medical monitoring program for injured athletes and new concussion guidelines for schools and coaches. The NCAA said it has taken recent steps to increase awareness of how to treat possible head injuries, from legislation and outreach efforts to new rules on the playing field. On Friday, the NCAA said it was awarding a $399,999 grant to fund a study into the long-term effects of head injuries in college sports.

Smith reaches out to Sadler ahead of Chicagoland JOILET, Ill. (AP) — Just as predictable as the weekend fender bashing is the awkward conversation a few days later. This time, it was Elliott Sadler and Regan Smith. And they talked, too. Even Dale Earnhardt Jr. waded into the fray. The latest NASCAR feud arrived at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday when Sadler, Smith and rest of the Nationwide drivers held two practice sessions for Sunday’s STP 300. The stop in suburban Chicago comes one week after the championship contenders got into a heated discussion in New Hampshire. “For him to do what he did at New Hampshire, I’m still ticked about it,” Sadler said. “But we talked and we agree that our racing’s going to change a little bit between us. But we know that we’re going to be racing around each other a lot between now and Homestead.” That means the dispute could have staying power, especially after the conversation between Sadler and Smith produced little headway. It all started when Smith spun Sadler around on the final restart in Saturday’s race at Loudon, costing him a shot at a solid top-10 finish and a potential $100,000 bonus. An angry Sadler then confronted Smith after the race, insisting he would not win the series title this year. “I made the move and I can’t take it back,” Smith said. “I understand his anger 100 percent, and I know exactly where he was coming from. He was racing for a lot of money and

the opportunity to race for a lot of money again this week.” Throwing out what was at stake, Sadler thought the collision was particularly egregious because he felt he handed a big break to Smith when he gave him extra room to maneuver in a tough spot at the series’ stop in Iowa and said he went out of his way to race him cleanly earlier in New Hampshire. The two talked during the week, and Earnhardt, the co-owner of Smith’s No. 7 Chevrolet, also reached out to close friend

Sadler. “We talked and if it’s a situation where we’re going for it, I’m sure he’s going to race me considerably harder than what he has in the past,” Smith said, “and that’s to be expected. I would do the same.” Sadler, who won last July’s Nationwide race at Chicagoland, shook his head from side to side when asked if he felt any better after the conversation. “My No. 1 goal is to win the championship and win races,”

he said. “The effect of me and how I race Regan is just going to change, as far as giving room and give and take and stuff like that is probably going to change a little bit.” Sadler finished 18th in New Hampshire and is fifth in the standings, trailing series leader Smith by 24 points. Sam Hornish Jr. is second, just five points back, and Austin Dillon is third with 16 races left. “I love it. I hope that they’re mad at each other,” Dillon said, enjoying the argument between

Sadler and Smith. “If not, I’m going to go tell Elliott Regan’s talking about him behind his back. I think it’s funny.” While arguments between competitors are nothing new in sports, NASCAR drivers seem to make more of an effort to smooth over disputes than say, two hockey players who just got into a fight. When the dugouts clear at a baseball game, don’t expect to see the managers jump on the phone to air their grievances. Sadler said there’s a simple reason for that difference. “When you play hockey, you have ‘Blackhawks’ written on your jersey, so you’re responsible for the Blackhawks,” he said. “When you drive racing, we have Fortune 500 companies up here. They don’t want you running around, I think, punching people, then setting a bad example. And I think it’s a courtesy thing.” Brian Vickers, who won Sunday’s Sprint Cup race in New Hampshire, said the calls also happen because drivers spend more time with each other more than competitors in other sports. But Dillon questioned the need for many of them, saying the most important practice is to be responsible to your teammates and race your competitors the way you want to be raced. “Every driver looks at those things differently and has different ways that they want them to be handled when it happens,” Smith said. “It was a situation where I felt like I needed to call even though it was not one of those phone calls you really want to make.”

Recari, Creamer share lead through 54 at Marathon SYLVANIA (AP) — The Marathon Classic isn’t a match-play tournament. Except for maybe this year. Beatriz Recari birdied the two closing par 5s to catch Paula Creamer atop the leaderboard through 54 holes Saturday, setting up a head-tohead battle between players who are three shots clear of the field. Recari, a 26-year-old Spaniard who has won twice on the LPGA Tour, conceded that it’s hard not to get caught up in a two-person competition. “Definitely, it’s easier because you’re playing with the player closest to you in score,” she said. “You still have to do your best. You can’t control what she does, so you always have to stay focused on what you’re doing.” They were at 12-under 201 after each shooting 4-under 67. The showdown could be a preview. Recari is expected to make the European team for the Solheim Cup next month — where match play rules — and Creamer is one of the mainstays of the American side. Creamer, who won in 2008 when the tournament was known as the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic, led throughout the round by as many as two shots before Recari’s late surge at Highland Meadows. She was pleased to find herself being the hunted instead of the hunter. “I love this feeling,” said Creamer, who has nine wins but none since the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open. “I haven’t felt it for a while. I’ve normally been chasing the leaders, but this is great. This is right where I wanted to be.” The last time she played in the same group with Recari, it was Recari who had the edge. In the third round of the Kia Classic in March in California, Recari shot a 69 when paired in the last grouping with Creamer, who had a 71. Recari, who had won the CVS last year, ended up winning in a playoff with I.K. Kim. Creamer faded to a tie for 17th. “She’s a great player,” Recari said. “It’s always great to play with her.” Creamer, who set the tournament record with a first-round 60 in her victory lap five years ago, is expect-

ing a battle. “She’s steady. She hits a lot of fairways and greens and gives herself a lot of opportunities to make birdies,” she said about Recari. “At the same time, there are so many players out there that you have to kind of be aware of. But she’s definitely going to be fighting until the end.” There are plenty of potential challengers, even though several of the biggest names — including world No. 1 Inbee Park, defending champ So Yeon Ryu and top amateur Lydia Ko all fell back into the pack. Rising American teen Lexi Thompson had a 67 and, along with Jacqui Concolino and Japan’s Chie Arimura, was three shots back. “I’ve been working on trusting my targets — picking out a target and just visualizing my shot,” Thompson said. “That’s what I’ve been doing every shot. I’ve committed pretty good to them.” Concolino, whose career-best tie for 11th came at the event last year, had a 69. She has revived her desire to play since taking time off from competitive golf after graduating from Vanderbilt in 2009. “I just got a little burnt out in college and needed some time to myself,” she said of her lengthy hia-

tus. “Ever since I was 13, I’ve been doing everything for golf, golf, golf. I never really had time to enjoy friends and family how you would want to. So that’s what I did for a year and a half, two years, and started to get back on track.” Arimura, fourth in the LPGA’s rookie standings, three-putted the final hole for bogey and a 68. Jennifer Johnson (66), Chella Choi (66) and Jodi Ewart Shadoff (68) were at 205. Park has been the talk of the tour this year, with six victories including wins in all three of the major championships. She’ll go for four in a row when the tour returns to action in two weeks at the Women’s British Open at St. Andrew’s. But after winning three in a row and with a solid finish last week, she sagged to a 73 that left her tied for 23rd. She double-bogeyed the first hole after hitting her drive into a fairway bunker and never recovered. That wasn’t the worst of it. “I just putted really bad today,” she said, after dropping from sole possession of fifth place through 36 holes. “Outside of that, everything else was really similar (to earlier rounds of 67 and 69), but nothing seems to be going in.” Ryu, who shot a 62 in the final round to win a year ago by seven strokes, shot a 70 and was six shots back of the leaders. Ko became the youngest LPGA winner ever when she took the Canadian Women’s Open last year at 15, but she had a 71 and was tied with Ryu at 207. Alison Walshe, tied with Recari and Creamer after the second round, fell back with a 73. Creamer said that she’ll try not to concentrate only on her version of match play with Ricari. “You can get hot out here and shoot a low number, so I can’t worry too much about what she’s doing,” she said. “I’ve got to go out and play my own game because there are going to be a lot of players that can fire at pins and post a low score. I’ll just have to make as many birdies as I can.” ——— Follow Rusty Miller on Twitter: RustyMillerAP

GULLANE, Scotland (AP) — Garry Harvey may have the most famous hands in golf. Anyone who’s watched the closing moments of the British Open has seen them, the calluses on the right index finger and thumb telltale signs that he’s played his share of golf. But there’s another reason. Like his father before him, Harvey is the man who engraves the name of the winner on the base of the claret jug. Asking the 58-year-old, soft-spoken Scotsman to pick a favorite out of the field elicits little more than a wry smile. “Preferably a short name,” he said, “with a four-shot lead.” The Open granted one of those wishes last year, when Ernie Els lifted the slim silver trophy aloft on the 18th green at Royal Lytham. The only drawback is that Harvey couldn’t put pencil to metal — he traces the name before etching so much as a line — until Adam Scott’s 7-foot par putt on the last hole slid past the cup just moments earlier. “You usually only have five to 10 minutes max to do the deal and cram it all in,” he said. That’s working at a pace of roughly 15 seconds per letter, always with at least one TV camera looking on and occasionally, with Royal & Ancient chief

so much larger than all the rest that he must have felt some pressure at the moment. “It’s huge,” Harvey chuckled. “But yes, you do feel a bit of pressure, especially when Peter is standing behind you. “There used to be one cameraman, nowadays seems to be two. But if you concentrate,” he added, “you’re fine. What I did find one time, we had a monitor beside me and I could hear (BBC announcer) Peter Alliss commentating (on the engraving), and that caught my attention. I said, ‘Well, we’re not going to have that in there anymore.” Harvey finds himself facing a different sort of pressure on the golf course occasionally, playing mostly in senior tournaments at home and on the continent. He’s qualified for one British Senior Open and will try to make a second beginning Monday, after his duties here are finished. Even so, that pressure pales by comparison to the tight spot his father found himself facing at Carnoustie in 1999, when Jean Van de Velde arrived at the 18th tee with a three-shot lead he would squander in spectacular fashion — before losing a three-way playoff. “Where you’re meant to start is the biggest problem,” Harvey recalled. “When Paul Lawrie won in ‘99, we had two or three names already penciled in. “Van de Velde had a disaster. If he had cleared the burn,” Harvey recalled, “we could have started engraving the name.”

If you have any of the above, there are effective treatment options, covered by insurances.

“Even though I haven’t won a major, I know what it takes to win one,” said Westwood, who was at 3-under 210. “It’s just a case of going out there tomorrow and having the confidence in my game, which I’ve got. And putting it to the test.” Sunday figures to be the toughest test of all. Despite his late blunder by hitting into a bunker and making bogey on the par-5 17th, Woods held it together for a 72. Mahan matched the best score of the third round with a 68 and will play in the final group for the second straight major. “I’ve got 14 of these things, and I know what it takes to win it,” Woods said. “He’s won tournaments all over the world. He knows how to win golf tournaments. He’s two shots ahead and we’re going to go out there and both compete and play. It’s not just us two. There’s a bunch of guys who have a chance to win this tournament. And all of us need to really play well tomorrow to win it.” Westwood is the 54-hole leader for the second time in his career. He will try to become only the eighth player dating to 1861 to capture his first major in his 40s. He was hopeful the other close calls will serve him well, though the 40-year-old from England didn’t seem all that uptight about it. “I’m hoping it’s going to turn out differently because I haven’t won one yet and I’d like to win one,” Westwood said. “But what can you do? You can only do what you think is right and put all that practice and hard work you’ve done tomorrow, try not to get in your own way mentally and just focus on the job at hand and believe you’re good enough.” He was plenty good on another warm, sunny afternoon on a course that was noticeable softer but no less demanding. Woods lost his chance to get in the final group with one swing. Tied with Westwood as they played the par-5 17th into a stiff breeze off the Firth of Forth, Woods tried to hit 3-wood over a series of bunkers to allow for a simple wedge into the green. With his ball on the slightest slope, he got it up in the air just enough that the wind grabbed it and deposited the ball in the bunker. Woods had to blast out sideways and missed a 15-foot par putt. Woods twice had at least a share of the 36-hole lead in majors a year ago and fell out of contention on Saturday. Despite the late bogey, he did well enough this time that he was only two shots behind. This is his best chance to end his five-year drought in the majors since the upheaval in his personal life at the end of 2009. And while he has never won a major when trailing going into the last day, the outlook didn’t look bleak from his vantage point. “I’m only two back,” Woods said. “There’s only one guy ahead of me.” Instead of playing with Westwood in the final group, Woods will be in the penultimate group with Masters champion Adam Scott, who had a 70. The Australian not only is poised to be the first player with a multiple-major season in seven years, he can atone for his meltdown a year ago at Royal Lytham & St.

Annes. “I go out there tomorrow not carrying the weight of the lead or not having won a major,” Scott said. “So it’s a different feeling.” Mahan made only two bogeys, and he avoided a third on the final hole when he made a 25-foot putt to save par from the bunker. He played with Mickelson in the final round at Merion and stayed in the game until late in the round, closing with a 75. One month later, he gets another crack at it. And there are plenty of others still in the game — five major champions within five shots of the lead, a list that goes down to Mickelson at five shots behind. Two-time major champion Angel Cabrera opened with 12 pars and had a roller-coaster finish — double bogey, birdie, bogey — for a 73. He was at 1-over 214, along with former Masters champion Zach Johnson (73), Henrik Stenson (74) and Ryan Moore (72). But it starts with Westwood, who can add to the British celebration of sport by capturing his first major. He certainly looked up to the task over 18 holes in the third round, and he didn’t seem the least bit uptight when asked to think about what was at stake Sunday. “I’m not in a high-pressure situation because I’m going to go have dinner, and I’m so good with a knife and fork now that I don’t feel any pressure at all,” he said, trying to keep the mood light. He sees nothing wrong with imagining his name on the base of the claret jug, ending all those questions about whether he has the game and guts to win a major. But when he steps to the first tee Sunday, it’s all about finding the short, yellow grass carved out of rough that looks like a Kansas wheat field. “I should be in the same frame of mind as I was today,” Westwood said. “I didn’t feel any pressure today — felt nice and calm out there and in control of what I was doing.” Miguel Angel Jimenez didn’t lose control. He just lost the lead. The 49-year- old Spaniard found too many bunkers, missed too many fairways and dropped far too many shots. He wound up with a 77, six shots behind. Woods was never far from the lead, even during four two-shot swings involving Westwood. The first one came on the par-5 fifth hole. Woods proved there was a driver under that tiger head cover by smashing his tee shot down the fairway, though he wound up missing a 6-foot birdie putt, while Westwood rolled in a 50-foot eagle putt from just short of the green. Westwood hit a high shot that settled 4 feet from the cup at the par-3 seventh while Woods hammered a 9-iron through the green and made bogey. Westwood led by as many as three shots, but they were tied at the turn when Westwood found a bunker of the tee and made bogey, while Woods had a simple upand-down for birdie. The last three holes changed everything — a bogey that could have been much worse, a birdie to build a cushion, a par for confidence.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Sunday, July 21, the 202nd day of 2013. There are 163 days left in the year. Today's Highlight in History: On July 21, 1973, Israeli agents in Lillehammer, Norway, killed Ahmed Bouchikhi, a Moroccan waiter, in a case of mistaken identity, apparently thinking he was an official with Black September, the group that attacked Israel's delegation at the 1972 Munich Olympics and killed 11 athletes. Five people identified as members of the Mossad spy agency served brief prison terms in Norway for murder and were then pardoned. On this date: In 1861, during the Civil War, the first Battle of Bull Run was fought at Manassas, Va., resulting in a Confederate victory. In 1930, President Herbert Hoover signed an executive order establishing the Veterans Administration, which later became the Department of Veterans Affairs. In 1944, American forces landed on Guam during World War II. In 1952, the Democratic National Convention, which nominated Adlai Stevenson for president, opened in Chicago. In 1959, the NS Savannah, the first nuclear-powered merchant ship, was christened by first lady Mamie Eisenhower at Camden, N.J. In 1961, Capt. Virgil "Gus" Grissom became the second American to rocket into a sub-orbital pattern around the Earth, flying aboard the Liberty Bell 7. In 1980, draft registration began in the United States for 19and 20-year-old men. In 1998, astronaut Alan Shepard died in Monterey, Calif., at age 74; actor Robert Young died in Westlake Village, Calif., at age 91. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush told reporters at his Texas ranch he was working to persuade more nations to help in Iraq, saying, "The more people involved in Iraq, the better off we will be." Five years ago: In a face-toface meeting with Iraq's leaders, Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama gained fresh support for the idea of pulling all U.S. combat forces out of the war zone by 2010. Today's Birthdays: Singer Kay Starr is 91. Movie director Norman Jewison is 87. Former Attorney General Janet Reno is 75. Actress Patricia Elliott is 71. Actor David Downing is 70. Actor Edward Herrmann is 70. Actor Leigh Lawson is 68. Actor Wendell Burton is 66. Actor Art Hindle is 65. Singer Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens) is 65. Cartoonist Garry

Natick project preserves WWII veterans’ memories NATICK, Mass. (AP) — From his regular spot at Dunkin’ Donuts Joseph Poshefko could recall scavenging for coal in Depression-era Pennsylvania, fighting with the Flying Tigers in China, then moving to Natick where he led the Civil Defense and raised a family. Born into a family of 10 children, the rugged, unassuming man known as “Joe Poko” rubbed shoulders with Charles Lindberg, Jayne Mansfield and Neil Armstrong and appeared on the Ed Sullivan and Arthur Godfrey shows. Poshefko died in his sleep July 8 at the age of 97 in his home in Natick, ending a life that nearly spanned the American Century. He was one of four known surviving members of the American Volunteer Group, popularly called Flying Tigers that are credited with destroying 300 Japanese airplanes in 1941 and 1942. “Dad was a talker, not a writer. He was the mayor of Dunkin’ Donuts,” said his son, Robert Poshefko, of Hopkinton. “My father was a walking, talking history lesson.” Poshefko belonged to a generation of 16 million World War II veterans who are dying at a rate of 600 a day, according to the U.S. Veterans Administration. Just over one million of those vets are alive today and their memories of the war’s hardships, horrors and heroism are disappearing at the rate of one every two minutes. But many local veterans are preserving and sharing their stories in varied ways. Poshefko, who was active in the AVG’s national organization, was one of the first to record his story with the Natick Veterans Oral History Project. Founded by Pearl Harbor survivor Eugene Dugdale, who died in 2006, the project has filmed interviews with 240 veterans from World War II to Iraq and Afghanistan. Hosted by the Morse Institute Library,

it has a website, www.natvets. org, which also has preserved some veterans’ journals, letters and documents. Coordinator Maureen Sullivan said the Oral History Project works with the library and schools to organize an annual breakfast in which veterans share their experiences with the public.

This 2009 file photograph shows the late Joe Poshefko in his Natick, Mass. home. Poshefko could recall scavenging for coal in Depressionera Pennsylvania, fighting with the Flying Tigers in China, then moving to Natick where he led the Civil Defense and raised a family.

For Isadore Cutler, filming his story of landing at Omaha Beach on D-Day and liberating fellow Jews at Buchenwald concentration camp with the project provides some relief from painful memories that won’t go away after 69 years. The 89-year-old Framingham resident wants coming generations to know wars are fought by ordinary men like him who endured suffering, loneliness and fear and are driven by dreams of getting home to loved ones. “The message I want to tell is that war is horrible. You just try to stay alive,” Cutler said, leafing through a photo album with his wife, Phyllis. “At Omaha Beach, we waded ashore past dead bodies. At Buchenwald, we saw people walking around like living skeletons and open pits with the naked bodies of women and

Concert organizers got all three this year in what turned out to be another big year for the annual three-day music event in Fort Loramie. “Beautiful weather, awesome fans and amazing performances made it a great weekend,” said Country Concert representative Paul Barhorst, referring to the July 11-13 event. “Jason Aldean poured his soul into his show (July 11) and Jake Owen — less than 48 hours after surgery on his hand — cranked out a stellar 75-minute set with his arm in a sling that had the fans on their feet. They both then flew to Boston for two sellout shows in Fenway Park. “Dierks Bentley and Little Big Town were a powerful 1-2 punch on Friday, and Brad Paisley came (Saturday) with nine semis and buses to put on a production and show with lasers and effects to go with hit after hit.” Colt Ford got the weekend rolling July 11 with his opening-night performance, followed by Owen and Aldean. Friday’s July 12 lineup featured a 4 p.m. appearance by Blackhawk, followed by Kellie Pickler, Little Big Town and Bentley. The closing-day list of performers July 13 featured six acts, starting with

Jana Kramer and followed by an emotional set by Chris Cagle — who broke into tears at the fans’ response to his first No. 1 single “I Breathe In, I Breath Out” — Lee Brice, Chris Young and Paisley. Aside from the headliners each night, Barhorst said the crowd — which topped 50,000 for the three-day event, including a high of 18,020 on Saturday — seemed equally enthused for the opening acts. “Many fans come for the headliners and walk away being fans of the earlier acts,” he said. “We heard a lot of great things from fans about Chris Young, Chris Cagle, Jana Kramer, Kellie Pickler, Lee Brice, Colt Ford and Dustin Lynch.” Down in the Country Club saloon — a large tent on the opposite side of the concert grounds where several up-and-coming stars performed inbetween the mainstage acts — fans got a chance to see stars of tomorrow. “The stars in the improved saloon played to huge crowds that left new fans of Chase Rice, Blackjack Billy, Parmalee, Rachel Farley, Dean Alexander and Wyatt McCubbin,” Barhorst said. “I’m sure a couple of them will end up on the main stage soon.” For more information about this year’s Country Concert or to find out about tickets for next year’s show, visit online at

More research is needed. Which also points out that, at best, I’m a mediocre amateur botanist. And to make matters worse, I’d left my trusty fields guides at home. Yet even so, the list of eyeflowering prairie plants I did manage to identify seemed impressive for a duffer — and if I’d remembered to include a wildflower reference book in my daypack, I could have doubled or tripled the tally. This will come as no surprise to fans of prairie wildflowers. When the season is well underway and going strong, the number and variety of blooms crammed into an area no larger than the

average-sized living room can simply be astonishing. When I was growing up, prairie habitat was thought distant and exotic … probably a bit boring. Mostly places Stetson-wearing cowboy heroes rode across on Saturday morning. Because those old TV shows were viewed in black-and-white, no hint of a prairie’s colorful dress captured the eye to fire up the imagination. Ohio has always had its native prairies, of course. More than 300 of them in pioneer times — ranging in size from a single acre to several hundred. The majority were located in the western half of the state. But these treeless expanses were never such a dominate feature like the dense forests. Our prairies were merely the first intimations of the vast grasslands yet

to come in that wide land of the setting sun. Barely a handful of presettlement prairies survived — only those patches and pockets inaccessible to the plow, perhaps hidden in a remote loop of river, or tucked high on some steep hillside. A couple were inadvertently spared by being turned into cemeteries. Others because the landowner — or possibly his wife — liked what they saw and decided to preserve this remnant corner with its unusual flowers and plants. Fortunately, the status of prairie lands in Ohio has changed dramatically the last few decades. The few old prairies have — for the most part — been spared. And countless others, many quite sizable, have been planted. Nowadays every park, reserve, and nature area seems to have a prairie— or a whole passel, depending on available lands and funds. There are prairies along roads, bordering sidewalks and parking lots, in city gardens and landscapes, private gardens, fields, and backyards. Prairies are in! And you can bet there’s one nearby. So if you haven’t visited a prairie lately, now’s the time. Treat yourself to the sight of summer spectacularly a’bloom!

Long-time Old South Pancake House waitress Dottie Satterwhite sits at the table that was a favorite of the late Van Cliburn on what would have been his 79th birthday, Friday, in Fort Worth. Regular customer Frank Moody gets a close look at the plaque.

Friendship of pianist, waitress memorialized FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — In 1998, Dottie Satterwhite missed three months of work to care for her dying mother. When her mother was gone and Satterwhite returned to her job — as a beloved waitress at the Ol’ South Pancake House — one of her regular customers was at the door to greet her. Van Cliburn swept Satterwhite into his famous embrace, and the two of them wept together. Then Cliburn handed her a check for $500, “to help you a little bit since you’ve been off.” For the next two weeks, Cliburn sent her flowers, prompting Satterwhite’s husband to ask, “What do you and that piano player have going?” An unlikely but true friendship, as it turned out, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. That bond is now commemorated with a plaque, unveiled at Ol’ South on Friday, what would have been the late pianist’s 79th birthday. It adorns the same corner booth where, for three years in the 1990s, Cliburn and companion Tommy Smith took meals several times a week, each one of them served by Satterwhite. “He was the high point of my time here,” said Satterwhite, a 76-year-old great-grandmother now in her 23rd year at Ol’ South. “I’ve served movie stars in here, but there is only one man, that’s Mr. Cliburn. There was nobody like him.” Cliburn, who lived in the exclusive Fort Worth suburb of Westover Hills, died Feb.

27 from bone cancer. More than a half-century earlier, he was the lanky 23-year-old from East Texas who shocked the world by winning the 1958 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition in Moscow. The triumph was said to inspire a thaw in the Cold War. Cliburn’s celebrity for a while eclipsed that of another young musician of the time, Elvis Presley. The pianist kept company with American presidents, European royalty, and movie stars. But Cliburn was also a famously gracious person who never lost his common touch. In the 1990s, when Cliburn was between cooks at his mansion, it was not surprising that he would end up in a place like Ol’ South, a family-style establishment near Texas Christian University since 1962. On their first visit, Cliburn and Smith took the corner booth near the kitchen. “Are you Mr. Cliburn?” Satterwhite asked. “He said, ‘Yes,’ and he stood up to shake my hand. He introduced me to Tommy. It was love at first sight. He was a special man.” Cliburn and Smith showed up four or five times a week after that, always around the beginning of Satterwhite’s 2 to 10 p.m. shift in the restaurant, which is open 24 hours. If their booth was occupied, Cliburn and Smith would wait until it was empty. They did not come if Satterwhite wasn’t working. “They just liked me,” she said. The afternoon meals were

actually breakfast for Cliburn, a notorious night owl. He ordered a poached egg and wheat toast, but he and Smith sampled most of the Ol’ South menu, Satterwhite said. “He met so many people here,” Satterwhite said. “I would go tell them that a person wanted to meet him and he would say ‘Sure, bring them over.’ He would stand up and shake their hand and visit. He was like that.” Smith always left the tip, Satterwhite said. But when Cliburn would hug her and shake her hand to say goodbye, there was often a $10 bill in his palm, or a $20 or a $50. Cliburn once gave her $100 before she left on vacation. He also gave her CDs of his performances, and four tickets to the 1998 opening of Bass Hall, which featured Cliburn at the keyboard. Sometime in 1999, Cliburn told Satterwhite he had found a new cook. “He said, ‘We won’t be coming in as often as we do,’” she said. “It was sad.” Cliburn and Smith returned to Ol’ South occasionally after that, but usually in the wee hours when Satterwhite was not working. The pianist often left notes of greeting for her instead, the latest coming only months before his death. On Friday, in the famous corner booth, Satterwhite sat with her Bass Hall ticket stub and an autographed photograph showing the waitress and her famous friend. “It’s like, why me?” she said.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tim Smith, the clandestine star of Discovery’s unexpected reality hit “Moonshiners,” doesn’t have anything against the growing legion of legal distillers who are plying their brands at your local liquor store. He just doesn’t want to drink their stuff. “Mine is just a real smooth moonshine,” Smith said. “That’s the only way I can explain it. I’ve tasted some of the other brands trying to figure out what they’re making and stuff like that. I’m not trying to put down nobody, don’t get me wrong. Everybody’s got their own business. But everybody I taste, that’s about what I throw away.” Smith’s Climax Moonshine is the latest entry in the big bang-like moonshine trade where new legal brands are being introduced every few months it seems. Former outlaws like Smith and the descendants of larger-than-life figures like Popcorn Sutton or Jack “Mimm” McClure — as well as corporate titans like Jack Daniels and Jim Beam — are all attempting to cash in on the growing trend. “It has just come from out of nowhere in the past few years. There are just so many distillers popping up,” says Andrew Faulkner, vice president of trade group The American Distilling Institute. But hard number are difficult to find, in part because the definition of moonshine is a bit murky. Anything from corn whiskey to flavored neutral spirits might be marketed as moonshine. As fans of “Moonshiners” — which drew an average of 3.25 million fans to make the show the Wednesday night cable leader — know, Smith’s been having a hard time getting in the legal game after two decades of plying his trade in shadowy ways in the hills around Climax, Va. His brand finally debuts in Georgia this week and he hopes to be on the shelves in South Carolina soon. “South Carolina and Georgia right now is all that’s stepped up to the plate,” Smith said in a phone interview during filming of the show’s third season, debuting this fall. “The other guys are a little bit unsure of what they want to do because I’m still listed as an outlaw.” Smith and “Moonshiners” taps into the mythic nature of illegal outdoor distilling. Always an interesting subcategory in the American outlaw canon, the sudden availability of the over-the-counter stuff has taken the onetime cliche out of the dark valleys and into America’s trendiest bars and restaurants. You can buy moonshine drinks of every

flavor and stripe, bake moonshine cookies or just drink it straight from the jar. That the clear corn liquor has made it into the stores is an irony Tommy Townsend, maker of Grandaddy Mimm’s Authentic Corn Whiskey, chuckles at. “Well, I guess the reason it’s popular is it’s illegal liquor being sold legally now,” Townsend said. “It’s funny. This term moonshine just came from people back in the old days making it illegally so they wouldn’t have to pay taxes on it.” Now it goes for $25 to $50 or more down per 750 milliliters on the corner. Townsend’s grandfather was something of a legendary figure in the field in Young Harris, Ga., the tri-state area where Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina meet. Rumored to have influential friends in politics and law enforcement, he only served time in jail once during his day. Mimm was the last of a breed and the recipe was in danger of passing out of memory when a friend idly mentioned the growing interest in moonshine. Townsend, the singer for the late Waylon Jenning’s band Waymore’s Outlaws, told the story of his grandfather’s business venture and the friend suggested he track down that recipe. “He said he’d help back it, you know, because there’s lots of money in alcohol,” Townsend said with a laugh. Smith doesn’t believe the escalation in legal moonshine has had even the slightest impact on the illegal trade — “We never could keep up with the demand no way.” — and believes it’s far more expansive than the general public believes. Not everyone can pull it off, though. Moonshine might seem simple: You mix corn, sugar and water together and run it through an easily learned cooking process. But it really isn’t. He says the moonshinecurious should make sure the brand they buy came from the still to the store. Anyone else is just pushing product. “What I’ve learned over say the last 20 years that I’ve actually been deep in research on the illegal side is that those legal distilleries out there have never made legal moonshine before, have no experience at all,” he said. “They only know the process. They go to an institute where they learn the process of it from a chemical engineer. Anyone can learn the basic process. You can learn it in elementary school. It’s chemistry. But actually doing it and tasting it and understanding what you’re doing, nobody’s done that.”

Memory decline may be earliest sign of dementia BOSTON (AP) — Memory problems that are often dismissed as a normal part of aging may not be so harmless after all. Noticing you have had a decline beyond the occasional misplaced car keys or forgotten name could be the very earliest sign of Alzheimer’s, several research teams are reporting. Doctors often regard people who complain that their memory is slipping as “the worried well,” but the new studies show they may well have reason to worry, said Maria Carrillo, a senior scientist at the Alzheimer’s Association. One study found that selfreported memory changes preceded broader mental decline by about six years. Another tied these changes to evidence on brain scans that dementia is setting in. “Maybe these people know something about themselves” that their doctors don’t, “and maybe we should pay attention to them,” said Dorene Rentz, a Massachusetts General Hospital psychologist. She helped run one of the studies, which were discussed

Wednesday at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Boston. About 35 million people worldwide have dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type. It causes a slow decline in thinking and reasoning ability. Memory trouble that disrupts daily life is one symptom. Don’t panic, though: The researchers are not talking about “senior moments,” those small, temporary lapses most everyone has, said Creighton Phelps, a neuroscientist with the U.S. National Institute on Aging. They are talking about real memory loss, in which the information doesn’t come back to you later, not even when people remind you of what you forgot, he explained. A true decline is a change in your normal pattern. “You’re starting to forget things now that you normally didn’t — doctor appointments, luncheon engagements, the kids are coming over … things that a year or two ago you wouldn’t,” said Dr. Ronald Petersen, director of the Mayo Clinic’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.

The Alzheimer’s Association lists 10 warning signs of the disease:

n Memory changes that disrupt daily life. n Challenges in planning or solving problems. n Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work or at leisure. n Confusion with time or place. Pati Hoffman, of Carol Stream, Ill., near Chicago, used to design menus and organize events for restaurants but began forgetting where she filed things in her computer. “I really just kind of started struggling. Something wasn’t right. I would have to bring my work home, spread it all over the floor, sort it and then try to get it done so that nobody at work would know I was having this difficulty,” she said. Driving to familiar places, “I would think, ‘I know where I am, but I don’t know how to get out of here.’”

n Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships. n New problems with words in speaking or writing. n Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps. n Decreased or poor judgment. n Withdrawal from work or social activities. nChanges in mood and personality. Two neurologists said it was just stress and anxiety, and one prescribed an antidepressant. A third finally diagnosed her with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease four years ago. She was 56. The new studies were on “subjective cognitive decline” — when people first notice they are having trouble, even if they test normal on mental ability tests: n Richard Kryscio at the University of Kentucky led a study of 531 people, average age 73. Those who reported a change in memory or thinking

abilities since their last doctor visit were nearly twice as likely to be diagnosed with dementia or mild cognitive impairment about six to nine years later. n Researchers from the French government’s health agency and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston studied 3,861 nurses at least 70 years old who were asked about memory symptoms and periodically tested for them later. About 900 of them carried a gene that raises their risk for dementia. Among the gene carriers, worry about a single memory symptom predicted verbal memory decline on tests over the next six years. In the others without the gene, worry about three or more memory symptoms was linked to memory decline on tests. n Rebecca Amariglio and other Harvard researchers found that complaints about memory decline matched how much sticky plaque researchers saw on brain scans of 189 people 65 and older. This confirms an earlier study of 131 people that tied memory complaints to these brain plaques, the hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.

Bob Harrison prepares a snack in his TigerPlace apartment in Columbia, Mo., as different sensors mounted near the ceiling record activity patterns. The sensor technology is unobtrusive and does not interfere with his everyday tasks. Researchers at the University of Missouri are studying high-tech monitoring systems that promise new safety nets for seniors living on their own.

High-tech gadgets monitor seniors’ safety in the home WASHINGTON (AP) — It could mean no more having to check up on Mom or Dad every morning: Motion sensors on the wall and a monitor under the mattress one day might automatically alert you to early signs of trouble well before an elderly loved one gets sick or suffers a fall. Research is growing with hightech gadgets that promise new safety nets for seniors determined to live on their own for as long as possible. “It’s insurance in case something should happen,” is how Bob Harrison, 85, describes the unobtrusive monitors being tested in his apartment at the TigerPlace retirement community in Columbia, Mo. Living at home specialists call it aging in place is what most people want for their later years. Americans 40 and older are just as worried about losing their independence later in life as they are about losing their memory, according to a recent survey by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Common-sense interventions like grab bars in bathrooms and taping down rugs to prevent trip-

ping can make homes safer as seniors deal with chronic illnesses. Technology is the next frontier, and a far cry from those emergency-call buttons seniors sometimes wear to summon help. Already, some companies are offering monitoring packages that place motion sensors on the front door, a favorite chair, even the refrigerator, and then send an alert to a family member if there’s too little activity over a certain period of time. Other gadgets can make pill bottles buzz when it’s time for a dose and text a caregiver if it’s not taken, or promise to switch off a stove burner that’s left on too long. Researchers at the University of Missouri aim to go further: Their experiments show that certain automatic monitoring can spot changes such as restlessness in bed or a drop in daytime activity that occur 10 days to two weeks before a fall or a trip to the doctor or hospital. “We were blown away that we could actually detect this,” said nursing professor Marilyn Rantz, an aging-in-place specialist who is leading the research. She compares it to “a vital sign of my

physical function.” Why would the gadgets work? That monitor under the mattress can measure pulse and respiratory patterns to see if heart failure is worsening before someone realizes he or she is becoming short of breath. More nighttime bathroom trips can indicate a brewing urinary tract infection. A change in gait, such as starting to take shorter or slower steps, can signal increased risk for a fall. Basic motion sensors can’t detect that. So Rantz’s team adapted the Microsoft Kinect 3-D camera, developed for video games, to measure subtle changes in walking. (Yes, it can distinguish visitors.) The researchers installed the sensor package in apartments at the university-affiliated TigerPlace community and in a Cedar Falls, Iowa, senior complex. On-site nurses received automatic emails about significant changes in residents’ activity. One study found that after a year, residents who agreed to be monitored were functioning better than an unmonitored control group, presumably because nurses intervened sooner at signs of trouble, Rantz said.

LOGANSPORT, Ind. (AP) — What’s Logansport resident Lillian Webster’s secret to maintaining her job as a barber after turning 90 this year? “A miracle,” she said with a laugh. In an industry dominated by men both in and behind the chair, Webster has found a living for more than 60 years that has provided her with clients from Cass County to Florida. Her latest 14 years in the profession have been spent at the barber shop owned by Charlie Goudy at 921 N. Third St., where she works Mondays and Thursdays. After graduating from Grass Creek High School in Grass Creek in 1941, Webster married Richard Webster, now deceased, who started out as a barber in Royal Center in the 1940s. Deciding to take on the trade herself, Webster enrolled in the International Barber College in Indianapolis, where she studied for six months before becoming licensed. Barbering extends further beyond Webster and her husband in her family, as her brother, Albert Leazenby, ended up following in her footsteps and now runs a barber shop in Mexico in nearby Miami County. When asked what made her want to pursue becoming a barber, her answer was simple but

sincere. “I just liked it,” she told the Pharos-Tribune ( ) in the waiting area of Goudy’s shop on a recent Thursday afternoon. She went on to recall a friend, Fern Smith, who used to own a barber shop in town. “I thought, if she can do it, I can do it,” she said with a laugh. Webster worked at her husband’s shop in Royal Center before he started a shop on North Third Street in Logansport, not far from where Goudy’s establishment is. The couple eventually moved to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in the 1960s to start a shop up there. Goudy recalled the couple coming back to Logansport on their vacations to fill in at barber shops in town. While in Fort Lauderdale, Richard became ill with cancer, forcing the couple to close their shop before he passed away. After that, Webster returned to Logansport, eventually coming to work for Goudy. “We’ve known each other for years,” Goudy said of Lillian Webster. “She’s a very nice person, very cordial and everything. She knows a lot of people and has known a lot of people. Really a pleasant person.” It was a different time for barbers when Webster and Goudy first got into the trade, they said.

This Aug. 24, 2011, file photo shows beachgoers at Cape Hatteras. N.C. The Cape Hatteras National Seashore makes up much of Hatteras Island, meaning there’s no development except in the seven villages — Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Buxton, Frisco and Hatteras. Vehicles are generally allowed on the beach, although not on the beaches in front of the villages during tourist season.

Hatteras Island — fickle but alluring HATTERAS, N.C. (AP) — Hatteras Island along North Carolina’s Outer Banks is a fickle but alluring place. The island juts into the Atlantic, making it a bull’s-eye for high winds, waves and the occasional hurricane. Cautious vacationers listen to weather reports regularly to make sure they don’t need to evacuate ahead of an approaching storm. In August 2011, Hurricane Irene closed the only road across a bridge to the island, N.C. Highway 12, for weeks, and Superstorm Sandy did the same again last fall. Without the road, getting to and from the island requires two ferry rides — one from the mainland to Ocracoke Island, and a second one from Ocracoke to Hatteras. And yet the island’s appeals are irresistible — its beauty, its serenity, its calm. Yes, you can find plenty to do, such as fishing and wind surfing. But Hatteras also is the place to sit on the beach, walk on the beach and nap on the beach. The best part about Hatteras? Most of what makes it special is free. The beach The Cape Hatteras National Seashore makes up much of Hatteras Island, meaning there’s no development except in the seven villages — Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Buxton, Frisco and Hatteras. Some beaches are so narrow that waves lap under homes, while others are so wide that you’re out of breath by the time you get to the water, even if you’re lucky enough to stay in an oceanfront home. Vehicles are generally allowed on the beach, although not on the beaches in front of the villages during tourist season. Rules protecting birds and turtles mean driving is banned along some popular fishing areas at times so be sure to check. Details at . Graveyard of the Atlantic

Museum Some 600 shipwrecks litter the Hatteras coastline, giving rise to its nickname, Graveyard of the Atlantic. Most of the wrecks have been blamed on Diamond Shoals, an area of shifting sand bars that extends 14 miles (22.5 kilometers) into the Atlantic. The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in Hatteras is dedicated to local seafaring history. The museum’s focal point is a 12-foot-tall (3.6-meter) lens made in 1854 for the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. It’s known as the firstorder Fresnel lens (first order refers to size, Fresnel was the name of its designer). Other artifacts include an Enigma machine from a German U-boat, used to encrypt and decode messages, and a display about Billy Mitchell, who proved in the 1920s that airplanes could sink battleships, an idea that other military leaders of the time openly ridiculed. In September 1923, Mitchell’s bombers sank two obsolete warships off Cape Hatteras from the air to prove his point. The local airfield is named after him. Admission is free; donations are encouraged. Details at http://www. htm . Bird walks, moving islands and more The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service offers numerous opportunities to learn about nature, many of which are free. One new program teaches visitors (and maybe some residents) about barrier island migration and why the ocean keeps cutting into N.C. Highway 12, creating new inlets. About 400 species of birds live in the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, and the USFWS offers free tours three days a week from late spring to mid-autumn and at least once a week the rest of the year.

Details at . Lighthouses The National Park Service charges admission to climb both the Cape Hatteras and Bodie (pronounced bah’dee) island lighthouses. But nothing stops visitors from looking at the lighthouses and admiring them from the ground. Bodie Island just underwent a $5 million makeover and was opened to the public in April for the first time in its 141-year history. The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, recognized by its famous black-and-white barber pole stripes, is the tallest brick lighthouse in the United States. It was moved in 1999 to protect it from beach erosion. Details at caha/planyourvisit/climbing-the-capehatteras-lighthouse.htm and http:// bodie-island-light-station.htm . Ferry from Hatteras to Ocracoke At the end of Hatteras Island, near the museum, you can take a free ferry from Hatteras Island to Ocracoke Island, which is still part of the national seashore. The ferry takes about 40 minutes. On Ocracoke, you can visit a British cemetery and the Ocracoke Lighthouse, built in 1823 and noted for its white exterior. The Ocracoke cemetery has four of the 34 victims from the HMS Bedfordshire, which a German torpedo struck and sank on May 12, 1942. A fifth body washed up on Hatteras Island and is buried there, next to a British sailor from the merchant vessel San Delfino, which was also torpedoed by the Germans.

The three C’s of guest rooms Candice Olson

Scripps Howard News Service

Booking a luxurious suite in a swanky hotel is one of the nicer things you can do for yourself when traveling. There’s nothing quite like kicking off your Manolos at the end of the day, slipping into billion-threadcount sheets and ordering up room service. My clients, Marc and Maureen, often dreamed of such a hotel suite — but they dreamed of having it in their own home. With two kids and little space to spare, they really had nowhere decent for visiting relatives to stay. When guests did come, they had to sleep on an inflatable mattress in Marc’s office. The only available space in which to create a guest room was the basement. It was a cold, dark space with no windows. But with enough TLC, I knew I could transform it into a suite fit for a queen, a rock star — or an in-law or two. When designing the perfect guest suite, it is important to focus on the three C’s: comfort, convenience and color. To see the three

What struck me was how the comfort (plush furnishings and deluxe linens), convenience (lots of storage and an amenity-laden bathroom) and color (a soothing palette and lots of light) combined to create tranquility and warmth. Fueled with new ideas, I geared up to give Marc and Maureen’s room the boutique-hotel treatment. I started by completely gutting the place. I then spray-

foam-insulated the walls and painted them a warm shade of almond, installed brown cork flooring and constructed a new ceiling with recessed lighting. Next, I created two zones within the larger space: a bedroom and an en suite bathroom. I wanted to create a peaceful atmosphere in the bedroom, and a good way to do that is with warm colors. Therefore, I chose a rich palette of cream, butterscotch, gold and wispy blue/grays. I used one wall as my focal point and put up an enormous tufted headboard

in a luminous golden fabric. Against this headboard, I put in a deluxe bed with sumptuous creamy linens, quilted coverlets in sand and pewter, and tons of accent pillows. I then flanked the bed with two silver-leaf end tables with large mirror sconces above. I also fashioned a comfortable sitting area in the room, which contains a gorgeous gas fireplace, a creamy chair and a small wood table — the perfect spot in which to unwind with a good book. For added convenience, I designed a long work desk that doubles as a vanity, complete with a large mirror that conceals a TV. I wanted to do something special to separate the bedroom from the bathroom, so I chose French sliding doors and applied nature-inspired frosted vinyl graphics on the glass. These doors keep the space open between the two rooms and provide privacy. I used the same kind of doors for a big storage area in the bedroom. All of these doors, in conjunction with the lighting and mirrors, create the illusion of a bright, window-filled space.

30-year mortgage rate declines to 4.37 percent WASHINGTON (AP) — Average rates on U.S. fixed mortgages declined this week as concern waned in the financial markets over the Federal Reserve’s possible slowing of its bond purchases this year. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the average on the 30-year loan slipped to 4.37 percent. That’s down from 4.51 percent last week but is still near the highest level in nearly two years. Just two months ago the rate was 3.35 percent, barely above the record low of 3.31 percent. Rates had surged in recent

weeks amid concern over the Fed’s bond purchases, which have kept interest rates low. The average on the 15-year mortgage fell to 3.41 percent from 3.53 percent last week. Chairman Ben Bernanke said last week the Fed will continue to stimulate the economy, even after it begins to slow the bond purchases. Even with the recent gains, mortgage rates remain low by historical standards. Low rates have helped fuel a housing recovery that is helping • See MORTGAGE on page B6

to drive economic growth this year. Greater demand, along with a tight supply of homes for sale, has pushed up home prices. It also has led to more home construction, which has created more jobs. The Commerce Department reported Wednesday that U.S. builders started work on fewer homes in June, mostly because apartment construction fell sharp-

ly. But applications for permits to build single-family houses rose to the highest level in five years, suggesting the housing recovery will continue. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which mortgage rates typically track, fell on Wednesday to 2.49 percent from 2.53 percent as investors bought U.S. government bonds following comments by Bernanke in his appearance

before a U.S. House committee. He said the central bank had no firm timetable for cutting back on its bond purchases. The Fed would consider reducing its stimulus program if the economy improves, Bernanke said, but he stressed that the reductions were “by no means on a preset course.” The yield on the 10-year note edged up to 2.52 percent Thursday morning.

smelly shoes, cleats or shin guards in the garage or in a weather safe container under an awning outside. After those smelly items are taken care of the children clean up and smell like flowers — it’s all good! For pet odors, when you have listed or are considering listing your home, we must make provisions. Can you put the litter box in an unused space and train the cat to use it there? Also, change the box daily. For larger dogs, brush them daily, bathe them weekly. For caged or aquarium type animals; keep it clean and fresh. In addition to these provisions – and if you have damage due to the pets — you can also buy a carpet deodorizer powder made for pet odor. It does help. Room deionizers do help to pull odors out as well. If drastic measures are needed (if puppy has

pottied predominantly and left puddles) you may have to consider replacing the carpet if deep carpet cleaning doesn’t do the trick. Arm and Hammer (and likely other brands) actually make a paint that absorbs odors while freshening the walls. Overall, encourage your realtor to be honest with you. If you have a pet or have suspicions your home may have an odor – you are likely correct. An honest realtor is a great asset. She or he will help you address smelly issues and minimize the impact on your bottom line and salability. And, isn’t that really the ultimate goal?

(AP) — It was a warm June day, on the heights near the Missouri River in south central South Dakota, when Billie Sutton mounted his favorite horse, Purple, and went out to rope some calves. For a ranch family such as that of the Suttons, it was routine. But these days, nothing is routine for Sutton. Not since a freak rodeo accident in October 2007 abruptly changed his life. Billie Sutton, 29, is paralyzed from the waist down. Though he and his family hope for a recovery, success is not guaranteed. Along the way, though, Sutton has managed to make an impressive life for himself. He’s an officer at a bank. He recently married a woman about to earn her law degree. Through a special saddle, Sutton still can ride his horse and help out on the family ranch. And campaigning in a wheelchair, he’s won two consecutive elections to the state Senate, where he’s the assistant minority leader. But unlike any of his colleagues in the bank or the Capitol, Sutton has his own song. His sister, Rehme, is an aspiring country singer whose first album includes a song about Billie’s life. “He’s the toughest cowboy I’ve ever seen,” Rehme sings in “Billie’s Song,” the final track on “Things To Do.” ”He’ll always be a hero to me.” Sutton knew how his life was going to work out. As arguably the greatest rodeo rider the University of Wyoming had seen, Sutton was going to go professional. Before he graduated, he was out on the pro circuit, laying the groundwork for what figured to be a strong career as a saddle bronc rider. But a bucking bronco threw Sutton into the chute wall that October evening, ending Sutton’s rodeo dreams. “I had planned on coming home my entire life,” Sutton told the Argus Leader “I didn’t plan on coming home the way I came home.” Now, instead of riding under the spotlights in Las Vegas, Sutton works at a bank in Burke as an investment consultant. He lives in town, rolling along Main Street in a wheelchair and using a special rig on his pickup truck that allows him to drive without using his feet. Sutton is passionate about his work, but even the most rewarding days at the bank are hard-pressed to compare to the thrill of rodeo. “This was an abrupt shutoff,” said Renee Sutton, Billie’s mother. “It was an absolute 90-degree turn from where you think you’re headed, and then boom. … Most people don’t experience a turn like that.” Sutton’s office at First Fidelity Bank is decorated with memorabilia of his riding days, photos and trophies and saddles. “My dad was a saddle bronc rider, and I always knew I wanted to do it,” Sutton said. “Once I started doing it, I was hooked.” It was easy to get hooked on rodeo at the Sutton family ranch, with sweeping vistas of the Missouri River along the road leading up to the barn and house.

“He’s been dragging calves to the fire since he was 7,” said Bill Sutton, Sutton’s father. Renee Sutton remembers her son’s determination as a child. “He worked hard at everything he ever did,” Renee Sutton said. “So if we’re going to ride a horse, we’re going to really ride a horse good. If we’re going to rope calves, we’re going to rope calves good.” To practice, Sutton sometimes would go out and rope calves on foot, rather than mounted, where the horse does much of the work. “He was very serious about what he was doing,” said Rehme Sutton, Billie’s younger sister, who was asked to help out by holding the calves. “I was so bad at it … he’d get so mad if I wouldn’t pull the calf.” All that work paid off. Sutton finished his college career as the University of Wyoming’s all-time leader in individual rodeo points. While there, he made the national finals all four years. “It was nothing for him in high school and college to tie a calf up to the fence and just run at him and tie him down all afternoon, again and again and again,” Renee Sutton said. He knew the sport he chose came with its dangers. “You know that there’s risk,” he said. Still, it didn’t make it any easier to give it up after the accident. “When they tell you you can’t do it any more, that’s the toughest part,” Sutton said. It was nothing special when Sutton climbed onto a horse called Ruby in the Minot, N.D., rodeo chute. He had ridden in countless rodeos, and he had ridden Ruby before — and won, with 84 points at the Clear Lake rodeo. “I was pretty excited to have her drawn,” Sutton recalled. As he was trying to put his right foot into Ruby’s stirrup, “she flipped over backward, pinned me against the back of the chute.” Rodeo riders get thrown all the time, even in chutes, and minor injuries are common. “You worry about getting hurt, but not to that extent,” Sutton said. “You always thought you could break an arm or a leg, but you never thought about being paralyzed.” By pure chance, Ruby threw Sutton into a spot on the fence where, earlier that day, another bronco had kicked out a board. His lower spine wedged into the hole, contorting unnaturally. Ruby immediately stood up. Sutton didn’t. “I wasn’t sure what to think at first,” Sutton said. “When the horse flipped over and stood up, it was instantly severe pain. It felt like my hips were way out in front of me. I said to the guys around me, ‘You’ve got to get me out of here, I broke my back.’ “ Sutton’s parents had planned to come up to Minot on Friday to watch over the weekend. That changed when a friend of Billie’s called with the news. They set out for Minot, then redirected to Minneapolis as Billie was airlifted to a hospital there.

Arizona summer the time for great desert deals John Marshall PHOENIX (AP) — Winter turns the Valley of the Sun into a destination, luring visitors from colder climates around the world to the warmth of the desert. Once the searing heat of summer hits, the tourists tend to stay away and even the locals look to escape, heading off to the mountains of Flagstaff or beaches of Southern California. But here’s a little secret for you value-conscious travelers out there: Summer is the best time to get deals in the desert. Rooms up to 70 percent off, deals on spa and golf packages, resort and dining credits — all at the same luxury resorts with same stellar service others pay hundreds of dollars more for during the high season. If you can stand the heat, or at least find a way to avoid it, the bargainbasement price for highend leisure is more than worth it. “The services don’t change, it’s the same resort, the same great location whether it’s March or July,” said Shane Allor, director of sales and marketing at JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, a suburb of Phoenix. “From a value standpoint, you’re experiencing the same staff, the same very high service levels in the summer that you would get during the peak season when folks are paying $500-600 a night for those same packages.” Just 20 years ago, many Phoenix-area resorts shut down for the summer because of the heat. That changed when resort operators realized they could get people to still come out by lowering the prices — a lot. From around the start of June into September, rates at resorts drop precipitously, starting around $109 up to about $199 at the higher-end places. And included in those rates are a variety of amenities: a round of golf, an hour massage, $100 credit toward dining or shopping, and activities for kids and adults. Many of the guests who go to the Valley’s resorts during the summer are locals looking for a short getaway, but more out-oftowners have headed to the desert in recent years to take advantage of the

hi-end pampering at lowend prices. It’s also a great time for meeting planners to take advantage of low rates, booking meetings at luxury resorts they might not have been able to afford during the winter season. “So much of it is these wonderfully affordable rates,” said Ann Lane, senior director of advertising and public relations at Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch. “Sometimes people will be here on meetings and they go home and rave about it, and say ‘hey, let’s try it.’ And they can do it with rates that are within reach.” Potential visitors unfamiliar with Arizona may be concerned about the recent spate of fires. Those aren’t an issue in the Valley; the Yarnell fire that killed 19 firefighters is 85 miles (about 237 kilometers) northwest of Phoenix and most of the resorts here are far away from the mountains where lightning-strike blazes usually spark. The heat is another story. The running joke about the desert is that it’s a dry heat, but when the mercu-

ry soars over 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43 degrees Celsius), it doesn’t matter how dry the air is — it’s uncomfortable. The key to summer trips in the Valley is finding ways to cool off and avoid the hottest part of the day. Most of the resorts in the area have spectacular pools — the Hyatt at Gainey Ranch has 10 pools and a 30-foot (9-meter) water slide — so cooling off is usually not a problem. Anyone wanting to play golf or any outside activity that doesn’t involve the water should do it early, before things heat up. Dining or 5 p.m. happy hours, those are better indoors than outside on the patio. And drinking plenty of water is always vital in the desert. “People usually know that the rates are discounted for a reason and we make sure we keep folks hydrated and don’t have any ill guests, make sure they have the best time when they’re here,” Allor said. As long as they can handle the heat, it’s hard not to have a good time, especially at these prices.

Here’s a few of the deals available at Phoenixarea resorts this summer: n Westin Kierland Resort and Spa in Scottsdale has summer rates of $139 that include a $30 daily credit for the resort’s FlowRider wave machine.

Emmy nominations leave snubbed shows, stars AP Photo

In this publicity image released by Warner Bros. Pictures, Lili Taylor portrays Carolyn Perron, left, and Joey King portrays Christine in a scene from “The Conjuring.” The films opens nationwide on Friday.

Review: ‘Conjuring’ scares up some old-school horror (AP) — As sympathetic, methodical ghostbusters Lorraine and Ed Warren, Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson make the old-fashioned hauntedhouse horror film “The Conjuring” something more than your average fright fest. In 1971, they come to the Perrons’ swampy, musty Rhode Island farmhouse — newly purchased from the bank — to investigate the demonic spirit that has begun terrorizing the couple and their five daughters — a working class family who thought they had clawed their way into a rustic dream house. Lorraine is clairvoyant, and Ed is a Vaticansanctioned demonologist. They’re best known as the married, devoutly Catholic paranormal pros whose work with the Lutz family served as the basis for “Amityville Horror.” ”The Conjuring,” which boasts incredulously of being their most fearsome, previously unknown case, is built very in the ’70s-style mold of “Amityville” and, if one is kind, “The Exorcist.” The film opens with a majestic, foreboding title card that announces its aspirations to such a lineage. Does it live up to that? More than most horror films, certainly. But as effectively crafted as “The Conjuring” is, it’s lacking the raw, haunting power of the models it falls shy of. “The Exorcist” is a high standard, though; “The Conjuring” is an unusually sturdy piece of haunted-house genre filmmaking. The director is James Wan, who’s best known as one of the founding practitioners of that odious type of horror film called “torture porn” (“Saw”). In “The Conjuring,” he goes classical. Though it comes across as a self-conscious stab at more traditional, floorboard-creaking horror, Wan has succeeded in patiently building suspense (of which there is plenty) not out of bloodiness, but those old standbys of slamming doors and flashes in the mirror. Roger Perron (Ron Livingston) and his wife Carolyn (Lili Taylor) aren’t initially suspicious when their clocks all stop at 3:07 a.m., the family dog — as is custom — turns up dead and one of the girls starts sleepwalking. But the torment grows — bruises appear on Carolyn’s arms, the children are visited at night — they seek out the Warrens, whom we first see lecturing on the science of the supernatural. They, too, have a daughter. Their general philosophy is that a demonic spirit can attach itself to a person or an object, like a tick or unpaid parking tickets. They keep a sealed-off chamber of possessed items (a spooky doll figures prominently, of course), something like a trophy room of evil. Chad Hayes and Carey W. Hayes’ screenplay smoothly melds the story lines of both families. Particularly good is Julie Berghoff’s production design, a necessity for a film that spends so much time in one setting. Cinematographer John R. Leonetti’s camera creeps slowly through the house. “The Conjuring” shows its flaws, though, in its occasional digital effects representing the demons. Such choices effectively break the careful, naturalistic atmosphere Wan has created. The filmmakers have told stories of brushes with the supernatural while making the film, which only further contributes to the feeling that “The Conjuring” is too busy overstating its verisimilitude to have anything else on its mind. But most effecting are Wilson and the wonderful, sad-eyed Farmiga. When the Perrons are in need, the Warrens come with their instruments and understanding, ready to help a family haunted by an unseen demon. “The Conjuring,” a Warner Bros. release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “sequences of disturbing violence and terror.” Running time: 112 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four.

NEW YORK (AP) — That cliche about awards says it’s an honor just to be nominated. But what about all the worthies Emmy overlooks each year? Are they being dishonored by Emmy’s neglect? It was a question raised by Emmy’s latest round of snubs as this year’s nominees were announced Thursday. HBO’s magnificent “Treme”? Jilted yet again. Same for AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and HBO’s “True Blood.” They just seem to freak out Emmy judges. Showtime’s “Dexter” was shut out, too, with no Emmy love lost on Michael C. Hall (a past best-actor nominee five years in a row) or for Jennifer Carpenter, who, as Dexter’s foul-mouthed sister, has never been nominated for one of TV’s most vivid portrayals. Anyone who saw Tatiana Maslany in BBC America’s “Orphan Black” was floored by her multiple roles as identical women who were revealed to be clones. But Emmy shut its eyes to a salute for her. FX’s motorcycle drama “Sons of Anarchy” continues to get Emmy’s cold shoulder, despite riveting performances from an impressive gang of actors (including Katey Sagal, who won a 2011 Golden Globe for her role as the motorcycle club’s firey

matriarch but, in her long career, has never snagged an Emmy nomination). And what about “The Americans,” FX’s splendid Cold War-era thriller? Sure, it scored a guestactress nod for Margo Martindale. But how to explain zero recognition for terrific performances by stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys (not to mention the sly supporting-actor turn by Noah Emmerich)? Speaking of indelible supporting actors: Christopher Heyerdahl as The Swede on AMC’s “Hell on Wheels,” which, like Heyerdahl, was spurned by the Emmys. And is there any point in lamenting a second year that Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman were forgotten along with their great work for AMC’s

“The Killing”? Kevin Bacon’s entry into series TV was received with excitement when Fox’s serial-killer drama “The Following” debuted earlier this year, but it was “hold the Bacon” at the Emmys as he and his series was ignored. What a difference a year makes: Fox’s comedy “New Girl” landed two Emmy nominations last season — for lead actress Zooey Deschanel and supporting actor Max Greenfield. They and the show got nada on Thursday. Jon Cryer, last year’s best-actor winner for the CBS comedy “Two and a Half Men,” was shut out of a nomination this year. And “Modern Family” star Eric Stonestreet, last year’s winner as comedy supporting actor, failed

to make the cut this year. Three of Stonestreet’s cast mates on the ABC hit were named instead. On Thursday the broadcast networks were crowing about their nominations, with ABC reaping 45 and CBS and NBC both claiming 53. But none came close to HBO’s 108, and Emmy continued to be unimpressed with the crop of new series the broadcast networks introduced the past year, in what might suggest a distressing trend. During the 2011-12 season, only nine freshman series on the five broadcast networks got so much as a single nomination. During the 201213 season, that number shrank to these two major nominations for a pair of new series: Connie Britton as best actress on ABC’s “Nashville,” and Anthony Bourdain on ABC’s “The Taste” as outstanding host of a reality-competition show. Meanwhile, Internet TV network Netflix scored four major nominations (out of 14 in all) as it entered the Emmy fray with its new online originals: a trifecta for “House of Cards” (outstanding drama series, lead actor and lead actress) as well as outstanding lead actor for the comedy “Arrested Development.” So far in its first Emmys race, Netflix clearly feels honored. This image released by Netflix shows Kevin Spacey in a scene from the Netflix original series, “House of Cards,” an adaptation of a British classic. The program was nominated for an Emmy Award for outstanding drama series on, Thursday. The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ Emmy ceremony will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.

Spacey helps make history with Netflix’s ‘House of Cards’ Sandy Cohen LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kevin Spacey loves being part of what he calls “a new paradigm”: Internet television that’s just as compelling and well produced as anything on a cable or broadcast channel. Spacey was nominated for an Emmy Award Thursday for his leading role in “House of Cards,” the Netflix original series that collected nine bids in all. “I’m so happy for the series and so happy for Netflix … because it’s a big acknowledgement of the show and its quality,” said Spacey, also an executive producer. “For us to have broken through in … so many categories, nine nomina-

tions, for what is really, in many ways, a new paradigm, is so thrilling.” Internet TV is a new frontier with new rules. For example, Netflix didn’t require “House of Cards” to begin with a pilot episode introducing the main characters and story lines, freeing the writers to create natural suspense in an evolving story. “It changes the creative process of how you write a show,” said Spacey, 53. “When they gave us an order of 26 episodes — or chapters, as we like to call them — that was a remarkable thing for us because it meant that we could just get on with telling the story.” The way the show is distrib-

uted — all 13 episodes available at once — also offers audiences more choices about how to consume it. Such creative flexibility draws film writers, directors and actors, such as Spacey, to the TV landscape. “For storytellers who want to tell stories that are driven by character and not by explosions and things that only, in a sense, appeal to the heartbeat or the pulse and not the mind, then it makes sense to me that the best writers and directors and actors and storytellers are going to go to the ground where it is fertile,” he said. “It’s very fertile now, obviously. The streaming business is fertile, and the television business in its usual sense.”

‘Ender’s Game’ stars answer gay rights questions SAN DIEGO (AP) — Real-world issues are rare at Comic-Con where fantasy almost always trumps reality. But for the stars and the director of “Ender’s Game,” comments made by Orson Scott Card regarding gay marriage are leading to questions about the issue as they promote the science fiction film. Card has expressed opposition to gay marriage in the past and that has led some to call for a boycott. There were no signs of protest Wednesday as young stars Asa Butterfield and Hailee Steinfeld and the film’s director, Gavin

Hood, began to promote the sci-fi adventure film based on Card’s novel. The movie was taking center stage Thursday with a presentation in the convention’s massive Hall H. The film’s biggest star, Harrison Ford, addressed the controversy in an interview before facing fans. “I don’t think that issue rears its head in the work. No part of the story concerns Mr. Card’s theories about society in terms of gay issues or homosexual issues,” Ford said. “So I hold it completely separate. I think it’s an imaginative and complex

story. And I’m glad he told it. And I’m glad I had a chance to be a part of it. I think he has a right to his opinions and I think he has also made it clear that it was a battle that he fought and lost and would like to get on with the rest of life.” Hood likewise said he was separating Card’s perspective on gay rights from his book about children who are called upon to help humanity battle alien threats. “My view is I’ve been a member of the Courage Campaign for many years and I’m a little distressed by his point of view on gay

marriage,” Hood said. “However, the book is not about that issue, so I hope people can still appreciate the book because I think he wrote a great book, and the themes and ideas in the book, I think, are universal and timeless and applicable, and I hope the book will still be appreciated as a great work of art, even though I don’t agree with the author. I optioned the book, not an author, and I love what the author said in that book.” Card turned down an interview request by The Associated Press. He told Entertainment Weekly that

the issue is now “moot” given the Supreme Court’s recent ruling favoring gay marriage and, “Now it will be interesting to see whether the victorious proponents of gay marriage will show tolerance toward those who disagreed with them when the issue was still in dispute.” Lionsgate Entertainment also issued a statement rebuking Card’s position and said it would hold a benefit premiere to LGBT causes. Butterfield, who plays the film’s title character, said “I agree with rights for everybody” and that

Card’s views shouldn’t change how audiences receive the film or book. “You can’t blame a work for its author,” the 16-yearold British actor said.

‘Mystery Girl’ is literary thriller The main character in David Gordon’s 2010 debut thriller, “The Serialist,” was a novelist hired to write a serial killer’s memoirs. Now, in “Mystery Girl,” he introduces a new protagonist, a failed experimental novelist named Sam Kornberg who finds work as an assistant to a private detective. Gordon writes about writers because one of the things his books are about is the nature of storytelling itself. “Does your life work like that?” Sam snaps when asked why he doesn’t write “regular” stories. “Do the thoughts in your head sound like a normal book? Is there a narrator saying she did this and did that? … Does your life have a plot?” Fortunately for readers, “Mystery Girl” does have a plot — an intricate one in which

Sam’s obese and not entirely sane employer assigns him to tail a mysterious young woman. What seems at first to be a simple job soon snares Sam in a murder case that takes him on a wild ride from Los Angeles to a poor village in rural Mexico and involves Satanists, free love advocates, doppelgangers and underground filmmakers. The result is a darkly comic, stylish literary thriller peppered with references to literature (Shakespeare, Proust, Kafka) and classic movies (“Vertigo,” ”The Wild Bunch,” ”They Live by Night”). This description of a rural church in Mexico is a good example of the author’s fine prose: “Like many poor churches, it was magnificent and overwrought, festooned with glitter-

and-marble icing, bedoodled with arches, niches, flying angels, singing saints, and hailing Marys. It stunned us with its space and height and cool silence, offering the people a tangible vision of heaven, a working model of the miraculous to comfort them as they died face down in the dirt and sun.” The novel explores not only storytelling but also issues of faith, personal identity, friendship and the decline of civilization. Readers should be warned that the author, whose many and varied previous jobs include writing for magazines with names like Hustler and Barely Legal, has inserted a fair amount of explicit sex. While the book is not a hard read, Gordon does ask more of readers than the typical thriller requires. He’s not just fooling around.

This book cover image released by Thomas & Mercer/New Harvest shows “Mystery Girl,” a novel by Davd Gordon.

Elizabeth Morse, who made her fortune selling worthless herbal remedies to the gullible, is buying up huge parcels of timberland in Eastern Maine with the hope of persuading the federal government to turn it into a national park. The locals, from the politicians and timber barons to the poachers and sawmill workers, don’t like it one bit. She’s put land they’ve fished and hunted for generations off-limits. Worse, she’s killing forestry industry jobs. So trouble is sure to come to the backwater of lakes and forests patrolled by Maine game warden Mike Bowditch, the hero of three earlier crime novels by Paul Doiron. It does so in the form of intruders who slip onto Morse’s property, shoot some moose and leave the carcasses for scavengers. The story was inspired by a failed attempt to create a North Woods National Park and by the unsolved 1999 “Soldiertown moose massacre,” the worst wildlife crime in Maine history. However, Doiron has fictionalized all the details, moving the location far to the southeast. Warden Bowditch itches to dive into the investigation, but his boss, self-serving Lt. Rivard, keeps him on the periphery with makework assignments. Trying to live down a reputation for insubordination, Bowditch seethes but follows orders. Naturally, trouble finds him anyway. Before long, someone shoots up Morse’s palatial home, victims with two legs start piling up, the press questions the baffled investigators’ competence, and one of Bowditch’s buddies, wildlife poacher Billy Cronk, emerges as a suspect. Bowditch’s personal life has never been smooth; his father turned out to be a killer in “The Poacher’s Son” 2010). This time, his troubles include an unrequited love for a friend’s daughter and the troubling behavior of his seldomvisited mother. Despite the distractions, he cracks the case, but only at considerable cost to himself and people close to him.

Hoarders’ secretive lives may hide mental illness ROCKPORT, Ind. (AP) — As the co-owner of a small moving and junk hauling business, Randy Wangler of Rockport, Ind., has seen homes for which the words “cluttered” and “messy” aren’t strong enough. There was the time that he and his wife, Jayne, who own Mean Muggin Movers, visited a customer’s home for an upcoming move. Upon arrival, Wangler was “awe-struck” by the old newspapers, magazines and other items that filled the house. “Stuff was just stacked from the ceiling to the floor,” Wangler told the Evansville Courier & Press. There was so much stuff, he said, that he was taken aback when the homeowner gave special instructions about certain pieces of furniture. The furnishings weren’t even visible because they were totally covered in clutter, Wangler recalled. Wangler tried to talk the homeowner into throwing away the items, but he said the homeowner had a different idea — he planned to take everything with him to the new house.

Then there was the job where Mean Muggin was hired to clean out a family’s basement. The basement floor was covered in about four feet of kitchen garbage, Wangler said, apparently from where the homeowners had tossed it rather than taking it to the curb. That basement had developed into an item of local curiosity, Wangler said, because the parents of the family strictly warned their children never to let friends see the mess in the basement. During the cleanup, Wangler said, many neighbors showed up to watch as Mean Muggin hauled out the basement’s secret contents. Wangler said about 20 percent of Mean Muggin’s residential jobs involve what he would describe as extreme clutter or hoarding. Wangler has his own ideas about how these homes come to look this way — are the electronic conveniences of modern society making people more lazy about keeping up their physical surroundings? “Everybody lives differently, and everyone’s got their level of clutter … but it’s starting to be

ever more present that people really don’t care how it looks inside their house.” But true hoarding is more than just poor housekeeping: It’s an actual mental disorder, and mental health professionals now categorize it as a diagnosable condition in its own right. In May, the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders — also known as the DSM-5 — was released. In the newly revised DSM-5, hoarding disorder was added as a diagnosis, meaning that clinicians can now officially diagnose a patient as a hoarder. The DSM is the standard manual that clinicians and researchers use to diagnose and classify mental disorders. “Historically, hoarding has been considered a subset of obsessive-compulsive disorder,” said Dr. Mark Boling, a psychiatrist who is the medical director of behavioral health services at Deaconess Health System. The separate diagnosis, Boling said, reflects the current belief that hoarding is different enough from obsessive-compulsive disorder to merit its own diagnosis.

According to the American Psychiatric Association, hoarding disorder affects 2 to 5 percent of the population. After all, many people are what Boling calls “savers.” These are the folks who hold on to papers and receipts out of a belief that they might need the items later. Hoarders, though, are marked by an “incredible” attachment to the items they collect, Boling said, coupled with “an unwillingness to part with stuff.” And that attachment, Boling said, exists even though the items might look useless to an observer — stacks and stacks of old newspapers, say, or dozens of purchased-but-never-worn T-shirts. Having the items around them may provide hoarders with a sense of comfort or security, Boling said. “It serves deep-seated psychological needs.” Animal hoarding is a subset of hoarding. In those cases, Boling said, a person lives with more animals than they can properly care for. These cases involve a mental “disconnect” in the mind of the hoarder, Boling said. The

hoarder gains comfort from interacting with the animals, even though the animals’ living conditions and health may be very bad. For some hoarders, he said, there’s a physiological component — “Their brain just doesn’t work right.” Another common thread: “Folks with hoarding problems really can’t see things as having commonalities,” said Brenda Meyer, a licensed clinical social worker who leads a hoarding support group at Southwest Behavioral Healthcare. As an example, Meyer said, an average person might have one bottle of lotion in their bathroom cabinet. But a hoarder might have 50 different bottles, and truly see a need for each of them — an aloe-based lotion for burns, peppermint foot cream, special hand lotion and the like. Meyer said hoarders also tend to feel they must keep items in sight, rather than putting them away in closets or drawers. But that strategy tends to backfire, given the amount of objects the hoarder has. “It’s incredibly hard to find stuff in a rat’s nest.”

Fans of old AMC cars enjoy being different AUBURN, Ind. (AP) — Standing out from the crowd makes American Motors cars appealing to Ian Webb and his fellow enthusiasts. “You’re the only one of these at a show,” he said. “I think that’s what guys really get out of AMCs and when they like to collect them.” More than 200 car owners who enjoy being different are gathering in Auburn this weekend with the Hoosier AMC Club, a chapter of the American Motors Owners Association, The Star reported. Thursday evening, the AMC owners were showing their cars at a cruise-in on the courthouse square in Auburn. On Saturday, they will stage a car show from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Auburn Auction Park with free admission. Webb, of Fort Wayne, works for Auctions America, which owns the auction park. He serves on the board of directors of Hoosier AMC Club. He was expecting 200 to 250 cars for the AMC show, but Wednesday evening, he was beginning to think his estimate might be low. Some 50 owners already had arrived for a welcoming event at the National Auto and Truck Museum. Webb said owners are bringing cars from as far as Oregon.

Ian Webb of Fort Wayne, Manny Angareti of Long Island, N.Y., and Bob Hodson of Orlando, Fla., gather around Angareti’s 1974 AMC Gremlin outside the National Auto and Truck Museum in Auburn, Ind., on Wednesday. All three are in Auburn for a weekend gathering of the Hoosier AMC Club.

“I would imagine we’ll have almost every state represented,” he said. To prove the point, Manny Angareti drove up in his 1974 AMC Gremlin as Webb was talking, freshly arrived from Long Island, N.Y. Angareti explained how he

bought his car for $750 in 2006 in Montana and drove it back to New York in frigid conditions. “I had one of these when I was a kid in 1970,” he said. “The minute I got behind the wheel, I felt like I was 20 years old again.” Angareti was just getting started with going to great lengths

for his passion. Next, he bought a 1976 AMC Pacer in Fairbanks, Alaska, and made a seven-day drive back to Long Island. When he bought his first Gremlin, “I liked it because it was different,” he said. Bob Hodson of Orlando, Fla., listened as Angareti talked. He

owns five AMC models and said he fell in love with the 1964 American hardtop. “I have not been able to move past that car” in the half-century since then, he said. “When I go down the road in my AMC, I don’t see myself coming or going, and I can find it in the parking lot,” Hodson said. Webb’s connection to AMC cars goes back even further than his teenage years. “I came home from the hospital in a ‘69 AMX, and I’ve been going to these shows since I was in a stroller,” he said. Webb’s family owned a business in Huntington selling auto restoration parts. Webb drove his racy 1978 AMX to the museum Wednesday night. His first car was an identical twin to it, he said. But Webb is eager to show off his 1971 Gremlin this weekend. He just finished Tuesday with a 27-month restoration of the car. “I’m pretty excited to be able to debut it here in the ‘home’ show,” he said. Webb said he encouraged the club to come to Auburn for this year’s gathering. “Auburn’s such a car town,” he said. “I think people are really going to get a kick out of coming to Auburn for this show.”
