Crash shows perils of wing walking CINCINNATI (AP) — Risking death every time they go to work, wing walkers need courage, poise, a healthy craving for adrenaline and, most importantly, they need to be meticulously exacting with every step they take on the small planes that carry them past dazzled crowds at speeds up to 130 mph. Jane Wicker fit that bill, her friends and colleagues in the air show industry said Sunday. Wicker, 44, and pilot Charlie Schwenker, 64, were killed Saturday in a fiery plane crash captured on video at a southwestern Ohio air show and witnessed
Wildfires keep on raging DEL NORTE, Colo. (AP) — A colossal wildfire near a popular summer retreat in southern Colorado continues to be driven by winds and fueled by dead trees in a drought-stricken area, authorities said Sunday. The weather has prevented fire crews from making progress on the blaze, which grew overnight to 108 square miles, up from 100 on Saturday. The speed with which the fire has spread is exceptional: It was just below 50 square miles Friday evening. No structures have been lost in the fire, and no injuries have been reported. It is doubtful fire crews could establish any containment lines until there’s a break in the weather, possibly Tuesday, officials said. They remained optimistic they can protect the town, however. As of Sunday, officials firefighters remained focused on protecting South Fork, the Wolf Creek ski area and homes along Highway 149. See Page
by thousands. The cause of the crash isn’t yet known. Jason Aguilera, the National Transportation Safety Board investigator leading the probe into the crash, said Sunday that it was too early to rule anything out and that the agency would issue its findings in six months to a year. Wicker, a mother of two teenage boys and recently engaged, sat helplessly on the plane’s wing as the aircraft suddenly turned and slammed into the ground, exploding on impact and stunning the crowd at the Vectren Air Show near Dayton.
The show closed shortly afterward but reopened Sunday with a moment of silence for the victims. The crash drew attention to the rarefied profession of wing walking, which began in the 1920s in the barnstorming era of air shows following World War I. The practice fell off the middle of the 20th century but picked back up again in the 1970s. Still, there are only about a dozen wing walkers in the U.S., said John president of the Cudahy, Leesburg, Va.-based International Council of Air Shows. Teresa Stokes, of Houston, said she’s been wing walking for the

Carefully, he attaches four bottles of water and a tiny explosive charge to the robot. He uses a remote control to guide it 50 meters (yards) away to his target: a simulated backpack bomb. See

past 25 years and does a couple of dozen shows every year. The job mostly requires being in shape to climb around the plane while battling winds, she said. “It’s like running a marathon in a hurricane,” Stokes said. “When you’re watching from the ground it looks pretty graceful, but up there, it’s happening very fast and it’s high energy and I’m really moving fast against hurricane-force winds.” Stokes, an aerobatic pilot before becoming a wing walker, said she was attracted to performing stunts because of the thrill.

Rhoades, married to wife Connie for 29 years, said he became the road superintendent in 1978 after graduating with an associate’s degree in business management from Clark State. Through the years, the Troy resident said he has stayed in his position because he enjoys his varying duties, except maybe the paperwork, he joked. “The trustees have always been pretty good and the people of the township are very appreciative,” said Rhoades, who enjoys golfing at Miami Shores and Homestead golf courses. “And, I have some good people working with me.”
He has two full-time employees year round, and one part-time employee. Several college-age summer workers, like Rhoades himself was, also are hired to help with the extra load summer brings. As superintendent, Rhoades said his jobs duties include — but aren’t limited to — maintaining Concord Township’s 36 square miles of roads with repairs, snow removal and ditch mowing. He and his crew also take care of the township’s cemeteries and two parks. “I can work outside and not just sit in an office,” he said. A few years ago, his department also started a leaf and brush pick-up in the fall. “People just love that,” Rhoades said.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Admitted leaker Edward Snowden took flight Sunday in evasion of U.S. authorities, seeking asylum in Ecuador and leaving the Obama administration scrambling to determine its next step in what became a game of diplomatic cat-and-mouse. The former National Security Agency contractor and CIA technician fled Hong Kong and arrived at the Moscow airport, where he planned to spend the night before boarding an Aeroflot flight to Cuba. Ecuador’s Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino said his government received an asylum request from Snowden, and the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks said it would help him. “He goes to the very countries that have, at best, very tense relationships with the United States,” said Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, RFla., adding that she feared Snowden would trade more U.S. secrets for asylum. “This is not going to play out well for the national security interests of the United States.” The move left the U.S. with limited options as Snowden’s itinerary took him on a tour of what many see as anti-American capitals. Ecuador in particular has rejected the United States’ previous efforts at cooperation, and has been helping WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, avoid prosecution by allowing him to stay at its embassy in London. Snowden helped The Guardian and The Washington Post disclose U.S. surveillance programs that collects vast amounts of phone records and online data in the name of foreign intelligence, but often sweeping up information on American citizens. Officials have the ability to collect phone and Internet information broadly but need a warrant to examine specific cases where they believe terrorism is involved. Snowden has been in hiding for several weeks in Hong Kong, a former British colony with a high degree of autonomy from mainland China. The United States formally sought Snowden’s extradition from Hong Kong but was rebuffed; Hong Kong officials said the U.S. request did not fully comply with their laws. The Justice Department rejected that claim, saying its request met all of the requirements of the extradition treaty between the U.S. and Hong Kong. During conversations last week, including a phone call Wednesday between Attorney General Eric Holder and Hong Kong Secretary for Justice Rimsky Yuen, Hong Kong officials never raised any issues regarding sufficiency of the U.S. request, a Justice spokesperson said. A State Department official said the United States was in touch through diplomatic and law enforcement channels with coun• See SNOWDEN on 2

Rhoades • CONTINUED FROM A1
A wing walker performs at the Vectren Air Show just before crashing, Saturday Dayton. The crash killed the pilot and the stunt walker instantly, authorities said
Crash • CONTINUED FROM A1 “It is the craziest fun ride you’ve ever been on,” she said. “You’re like Superman flying around, going upside-down doing rolls and loops, and I’m just screaming and laughing.” John King, pilot and president of the Flying Circus Airshow, where Wicker trained, said the most important qualities of wing walkers are “strong nerves, a sense of adventure and a level head.” He said they tell people who are interested that it’ll take a year of training before they’ll be allowed to walk on the wing of an airplane in flight. “We give them an opportunity to walk on a wing down on the ground without the engine running,” he said. “Then we start up the engine. And if that doesn’t spook them, OK, we taxi around the field and that’s when it gets bumpy. If they do that successfully, the next time they do it is in the air.”
He described Wicker, of Bristow, Va., and Schwenker, of Oakton, Va., as “ultimate professionals.” “I don’t know of anyone who could have done any better than what they were doing,” he said. In one post on Wicker’s website, the stuntwoman explains what she loved most about her job. “There is nothing that feels more exhilarating or freer to me than the wind and sky rushing by me as the earth rolls around my head,” says the post. “I’m alive up there. To soar like a bird and touch the sky puts me in a place where I feel I totally belong. It’s the only thing I’ve done that I’ve never questioned, never hesitated about and always felt was my destiny.” She also answered a question she said she got frequently: What about the risk? “I feel safer on the wing of my airplane than I do driving to the airport,” she wrote. “Why? Because I’m
in control of those risks and not at the mercy of those other drivers.” An announcer at Saturday’s event narrated as Wicker’s plane glided through the air. “Keep an eye on Jane. Keep an eye on Charlie. Watch this! Jane Wicker, sitting on top of the world,” he said, right before the plane made a quick turn and nosedive. Some witnesses said they knew something was wrong because the plane was flying too low and slow. Thanh Tran, of Fairfield, said he could see a look of concern on Wicker’s face just before the plane went down. “She looked very scared,” he said. “Then the airplane crashed on the ground. After that, it was terrible, man … very terrible.” From 1975 to 2010, just two wing walkers were killed, one in 1975 and another in 1993, Cudahy said. But since 2011, three wing walkers have died,
including Wicker. In 2011, wing walker Todd Green fell 200 feet to his death at an air show in Michigan while performing a stunt in which he grabbed the skid of a helicopter. That same year, wing walker Amanda Franklin died after being badly burned in a plane crash during a performance in South Texas. The pilot, her husband, Kyle, survived. spokeswoman FAA Lynn Lunsford said the agency is often asked why wing walking is allowed. “The people who do these acts spend hours and hours and hours performing and practicing away from the crowd, and even though it may look inherently dangerous, they’re practiced in such a way that they maintain as much safety as possible,” he said. “The vast majority of these things occur without a hitch, so you know whenever one of them goes wrong and there’s a crash, it’s an unusual event.”
to lean on them,” said Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y. The Russian media report said Snowden intended to fly to Cuba on Monday and then on to Caracas, Venezuela. U.S. lawmakers scoffed. “The freedom trail is not exactly China-RussiaCuba-Venezuela, so I hope we’ll chase him to the ends of the earth, bring him to justice and let the Russians know there’ll be consequences if they harbor this guy,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. With each suspected flight, efforts to secure Snowden’s return to the United States appeared more complicated if not impossible. The United States does not have an extradition treaty with Russia, but does with Cuba, Venezuela and Ecuador. Even with an extradition agreement though, any country could give Snowden a political exemption. The likelihood that any of these countries would stop Snowden from traveling on to Ecuador seemed unlikely. While diplomatic tensions have thawed in recent years, Cuba and the United States are hardly allies after a half century of distrust. Venezuela, too, could
prove difficult. Former President Hugo Chavez was a sworn enemy of the United States and his successor, Nicolas Maduro, earlier this year called Obama “grand chief of devils.” The two countries do not exchange ambassadors. U.S. pressure on Caracas also might be problematic given its energy exports. The U.S. Energy Information Agency reports Venezuela sent the United States 900,000 barrels of crude oil each day in 2012, making it the fourthlargest foreign source of U.S. oil. “I think 10 percent of Snowden’s issues are now legal, and 90 percent political,” said Douglas McNabb, an expert in international extradition and a senior principal at international criminal defense firm McNabb Associates. Assange’s lawyer, Michael Ratner, said Snowden’s options aren’t numerous. “You have to have a country that’s going to stand up to the United States,” Ratner said. “You’re not talking about a huge range of countries here.” That is perhaps why Snowden first stopped in Russia, a nation with complicated relations with Washington.
Russian President Vladimir Putin is “aiding and abetting Snowden’s escape,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. “Allies are supposed to treat each other in decent ways, and Putin always seems almost eager to put a finger in the eye of the United States,” Schumer said. “That’s not how allies should treat one another, and I think it will have serious consequences for the United States-Russia relationship.” It also wasn’t clear Snowden was finished with disclosing highly classified information. “I am very worried about what else he has,” said Rep. Loretta Sanchez, a California Democrat who sits on the House Homeland Security Committee. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said she had been told Snowden had perhaps more than 200 sensitive documents. Ros-Lehtinen and King spoke with CNN. Graham spoke to “Fox News Sunday.” Schumer was on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Sanchez appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Feinstein was on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
Snowden tries that Snowden could travel through or to, reminding them that Snowden is wanted on criminal charges and reiterating Washington’s position that Snowden should only be permitted to travel back to the U.S. The Justice Department said it would “pursue relevant law enforcement cooperation with other countries where Mr. Snowden may be attempting to travel.” The White House would only say that President Barack Obama had been briefed on the developments by his national security advisers. Russia’s state ITARTass news agency and Interfax cited an unnamed Aeroflot airline official as saying Snowden was on the plane that landed Sunday afternoon in Moscow. Upon his arrival, Snowden did not leave Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport. One explanation could be that he wasn’t allowed; a U.S. official said Snowden’s passport had been revoked, and special permission from Russian authorities would have been needed. “It’s almost hopeless unless we find some ways

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Islamic militants disguised as policemen killed 10 foreign climbers and a Pakistani guide in a brazen overnight raid against their campsite at the base of one of the world’s tallest mountains in northern Pakistan, officials said Sunday. The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack at the base camp of Nanga Parbat, saying it was to avenge the death of their deputy leader in a U.S. drone strike last month. The attack took place in an area that has largely been peaceful, hundreds of kilometers (miles) from the Taliban’s major sanctuaries along the Afghan border. But the militant group, which has been waging a bloody insurgency against the government for years, has shown it has the ability to strike almost anywhere in the country. The Taliban began their attack by abducting two local guides to take them to the remote base camp in Gilgit-Baltisan, said Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan. One of the guides was killed in the shooting, and the other has been detained for questioning. The attackers disguised themselves by wearing uniforms used by the Gilgit Scounts, a para-

Concord Township, organized in 1807, is centrally located within Miami County. It is crossed by the Great Miami River. The MiamiErie Canal also crossed the township from north to south. Troy, the seat of county government, is located within the township. Aaron Tullis and family, from Kentucky, were the first recorded settlers in the township in 1805. William Barber arrived in 1804. Due to its central location, Concord Township is crossed by numerous roads and highways, including the Troy and Covington Pike, the Troy and Stillwater Pike, the Troy and Frederick Pike and the Miami and Montgomery Pike. The Miami-Erie Canal also ran along the eastern side of the township through Troy, the township’s only city. It was first surveyed in 1807 and contained 87 lots. The log tavern, operated by Mr. Overfield, one of the town’s first residents, is currently operated as a museum. — Source: www.concord-township.com of tubing and enjoying the sunny days of summer.

military force that patrols the area, Khan said. Around 15 gunmen attacked the camp at around 11 p.m. Saturday, said the Alpine Club of Pakistan, which spoke with a local guide, Sawal Faqir, who survived the shooting. They began by beating the mountaineers and taking away any mobile and satellite phones they could find, as well as everyone’s money, said the club in a statement. Some climbers and guides were able to run away, but those that weren’t were shot dead, said the club. Faqir was able to hide a satellite phone and eventually used it to notify authorities of the attack. Attaur Rehman, the home secretary in GilgitBaltistan, said 10 foreigners and one Pakistani were killed in the attack. The dead foreigners included three Ukrainians, two Slovakians, two Chinese, one Lithuanian, one Nepalese and one Chinese-American, according to Rehman and tour operators who were working with the climbers. Matt Boland, the acting spokesman at the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, confirmed that an American citizen was among the dead, but could not say whether it was a dual Chinese national.

a veterans memorial wall in Thomas Cemetery and were able to hire a company to do restoration work on some of the Civil War and Revolutionary War-era stones in the cemetery. He said the stones are now aligned better and appropriately memorialize those who fought in our early wars. “It used to take an entire day to mow the cemetery, now it can be done in two or three hours,” Rhoades said. The township’s two parks — Barbee and Eldean — also offer a sense of RHOADES pride for Rhoades. He said nine cottages were tore down in order to create the picturesque view that Barbee park now offers on County Road 25-A. “It think it is one of the best parks in the county,” he said. “You can go right in and watch the river, it’s right there.” Beginning in 2001, with the guidance of former Concord Township Trustee Bob Shook, Rhoades’ department also helped bring the county’s first stretch of bike path to fruition from Dye Mill Road to the MonroeConcord Township line. “I think that is definitely a pretty good accomplishment,” he said. While he said he hasn’t had too many crazy things happen during the past four decades on the job, Rhoades said he and his crew did once help stop a burglar coming out of a home. The man was ultimately apprehended and charged, according to Rhoades. In his leisure time, Rhoades enjoys taking his boat to Norris Lake in Tennessee for family time

Words To Know Secrete Markings Species Insects
Facts about Ladybugs? * Ladybugs aka ladybirds are small round bright-colored and spotted beetles within the family Coccinellidae * Ladybugs aka ladybirds scarlet, yellow or orange, with small black spots on their wing covers. Ladybugs have black legs, head and antennae.
Lady Bugs Life Stages The ladybug, like all beetles, undergoes a complete metamorphosis during its life. The life stages of a ladybug are: eeg--> larva--> pupa--> adult. Femail ladybugs lay tiny eggs, usually laid in a small mass (fertilization is internal). The larvae that hatches from the egg is small and long and has 6 legs. As it rapidly grows, the
larva molts (sheds its skin) several times. After reaching full size, the larvae attaches itself to a plant leaf or stem (by its “tail”). The larval skin then splits down the back, exposing the pupa. The pupa is about the size of the adult but is all wrapped up, protecting the ladybug while it undergoes metamorphosis into its adult stage. This last stage in the metamorphosis takes a few days.
* There are over 5,000 species of Ladybugs (ladybirds) * Ladybugs will bite if you squeeze them - but it will not hurt. * Lady bug stats and fact: Length is 1 to 10mm (0.04 to 0.4 inches) Habitat: Fields and gardens. Lifespan 2-3 years. Diet: Ladybugs are omnivores eating mainly insects especiall garden pests. * Male ladybugs are smaller than females. * The number of spots on ladybugs vary according to the species. Convergent ladybugs - 13 spots Two-spotted ladybugs - 2 spots
Ladybugs... Ladybugs are among the most familiar beetles, easily recognized by their round, often spotted bodies, less than 1/16-3/8” long. Most are shiny red, orange, or yellow with black markings, or black with red or yellow markings. Both adults and larvae are predators, mostly of aphids. They are common on plants and often over-winter as adults in large swarms under fallen leaves or bark. In the west swarms of Ladybugs are distasteful to predators. When disturbed, they may secrete an odorous, distasteful fluid out of their joint to discourage enemies. Did you ever see a little red and black beetle crawling along your window sill? It was probably a Lady Beetle or just a Ladybug as most people call them. Most species of Ladybugs are among our most beneficial insects as they consume huge numbers of plant feeding pest insects, mostly aphids. This fact and their attractive appearance have contributed to the generally good opinion of Ladybugs by most people. For instance, the French call the Ladybugs les betes du bon Dieu or creatures of God. Ladybugs belong to the beetle family Coccinellidae which means Little sphere. There are probably 4,000 species found world-wide and over 350 in North America.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Chicago Tribune on immigration reform is more than border security: Federal spending on border security is at a historic high. Illegal crossings are at a 40-year low. Deportations reached record numbers in President Barack Obama’s first term. Let’s get on with the business of fixing the rest of our dysfunctional immigration system. We’re talking to you, Sen. Mark Kirk. The U.S. Senate began debating an immigration bill, the product of months of negotiations by the Gang of Eight, a group of four Republicans and four Democrats who are serious about getting this done. The bill’s authors haven’t declared victory in the effort to seal the border. Their measure contains up to $6.5 billion for more agents, more fencing and more surveillance equipment, including drones. Much of that wouldn’t be necessary, frankly, As I if lawmakers worried more about letting workSee It ers into the country legally instead of keeping them out. ■ The Troy That means overhauling the visa system so Daily News American businesses can hire the workers they welcomes columns from need. our readers.

Opponents have offered amendments that would set those benchmarks higher — so high, the bill’s supporters say, that the path to citizenship would be out of reach. The full Senate already has rejected one amendment that would have withheld provisional status — leaving the 11 million living in the shadows — until the entire border is under surveillance. That could take 10 years or more. Kirk was one of 15 senators who voted against bringing the bill to the floor for debate at all. He’s still stuck on the “enforcement first” model, and he’s apparently not impressed with the falling numbers. He says he likes a plan outlined by Sen. John Cornyn, RTexas. That amendment would raise the bar that must be met before immigrants can apply for green cards. The bill’s supporters say Cornyn’s targets are unreasonable and prohibitively expensive. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., the conservative point man on the Gang of Eight, has said he won’t vote for the bill he helped draft unless the enforcement provisions are stronger. He’s trying to broker a compromise. Step one: Get Kirk and others to let go of the idea that until the border is fixed, everything else has to stay broken.

Lighting a (metaphorical) lamp for the Luddites Luddites might be having the last laugh. They were a social movement of 19th-century English textile artisans who protested — often by destroying mechanized looms — against the changes produced by the Industrial Revolution. In modern usage, "Luddite" is a term describing those opposed to industrialization, automation, computer usage or new technologies in general. The Luddites just may be on to something there. While I fully realize the benefits a computer can provide, I am just about ready to drink the Luddite Kool-Aid and go to the dark side. The really dark side. It’s become overwhelming, see? With each new gadget comes a new problem. This all started when the auto makers began offering power window controls. Before this, there was merely a crank mechanism that was beautiful in its simplicity. Wind the window down, wind the window up. No muss, no fuss and no computer chip to go haywire right in the middle of a car wash. But apparently people were overcome by the onus of manually operating a car window. Or maybe we didn’t know how badly off we were until the
Marla Boone Troy Daily News Columnist
Big Three told us that only the unwashed actually expended the energy necessary to get a little fresh air. We were hooked on the next best thing. Before you can say Edsel Ford, we had power seat controls, power mirror controls and power trunk latches installed in the car we all needed to take us to our power lunches. Madness. Electricity has been explained to me as contained smoke. Tiny electrons surge through the wires on their way to making your lamp come on. When the masses of those contained and controlled electrons stay contained and controlled, life is good. Computers compute and calmness prevails. But when things go bad, they go bad in a big way. Take our little corner of the world, for instance. One week

ago, my Kindle Fire decided it would no longer connect me to a browser. While this might sound, all things considered, like a minor inconvenience, it takes on gigantic proportions when you realize I have at least 18 games of Words With Friends going on at all times and, by Bill Gates, I need my browser. Kindle Customer Support couldn’t have been nicer. Once I got over the shock of learning the good people of customer support were actually going to, you know, support the customer, I followed the approximately 900 steps outlined by the tech and was back in business. The same week, the email function on my laptop went all screwy. Screwy is not a term used by the technical savants among us. Emails marked to delete opened instead and the machine absolutely refused to send any email to anyone. My desk computer froze up completely, not even letting me turn it off and stubbornly ignoring Ctrl/Alt/Delete. My resident computer guru explained through clenched teeth that I had failed to run something called the C Cleaner and why didn’t I do that since he had told me to do it many many times, but he would
explain yet once again and this time maybe I should write it down. (Huge sigh.) Then the house’s wireless network started kicking us off line at the most inopportune moments and by inopportune moments I mean about twelve times a day. Following this, even after the strongest urgings from Mr. C Cleaner himself, the iPad wouldn’t hook up to the Internet. Is it me, or are we in the throes of technology overload? I used to maintain there was nothing a computer could do that I could not do just as well with a pencil and paper. This is crazy talk, of course. One person armed with primitive writing implements cannot possibly be as utterly frustrating as a computer. And now that the floors have started sagging from the sheer weight of the electronic equipment contained in our house, it’s obvious how very wrong I was. There is one use for that pencil, though. I finally made a detailed note of how to use that C Cleaner. Now, if you’ll excuse me, Words With Friends calls. Marla Boone appears every other Monday in the Troy Daily News

You are related to a bunch of bullies Dear Annie: My husband and I both work 18-hour days at a hospital. When we get home, we are exhausted. Since our schedules are irregular, however, our siblings seem to think it means we are always available for free babysitting. My husband's sister (a stay-athome mom) is forever dropping off her toddler, saying she needs to "de-stress." She never calls ahead. We've tried locking the door, but she has a key. My brother has dropped off his young sons multiple times without warning and with no indication of when he'd be back. He stopped when I told him I was going to start charging him $12.50 an hour. The last straw was when my oldest brother's wife arrived one weekend in a van with seven little girls and stated that these kids were staying overnight with us because she and her girlfriend were going to a spa. I was just getting off a 24-hour shift, and I told her politely that since she hadn't checked with me beforehand, she'd have to make other arrangements because I was too exhausted to care for her girls and those of her friend. She became angry and told my nieces that I don't love them. Her girlfriend, whom I had never met, screamed at me from the passenger window. After they left, I got nasty phone calls from my brother and parents. The friend sent me an itemized bill and asked that I reimburse her for the spa trip they missed. Instead of responding, my husband and I sent our family members an email outlining that we love them and our nieces and nephews, but we would no longer be available for babysitting unless it was an emergency. We apologized for being rude or for causing them any trouble. The email was much kinder and more polite than they deserved, but we hoped it would allow us to start over. It was not received well. Currently, the only person speaking to us is my father-in-law. We considered moving in order to have boundaries, but I resent being forced out of a house I love. I miss my family. What can we do? — Not the Nanny Dear Nanny: What colossal nerve. It seems that those who take the most advantage are the same ones who are most aggrieved when they don't get their way. You are related to a bunch of bullies. You don't owe the girlfriend any money, and you don't owe your family members an apology. You have outlined your parameters, and they prefer to throw tantrums in an effort to manipulate you. If you want a relationship, fine. Continue to stay in touch. Perhaps they will come around in time, but don't expect much. And change your locks. Dear Annie: My wife and I received many gift cards to restaurants as wedding presents last year. We haven't used them because we are concerned about etiquette. When we use one of the cards, do we need to invite the person who gave us the card to join us at the restaurant? If so, do we need to cover the cost of their meal? We don't want to be rude. — Still Newlyweds Dear Newlyweds: You do not need to invite the gift-giver to join you at the restaurant. You wouldn't invite the gift-giver to join you every time you use a place setting or your new mixer, would you? The gift cards are the same. We do recommend, however, that you check to be certain the cards haven't expired. Dear Annie: Here is a suggestion for "Suggestions Appreciated," who doesn't want guests bringing snow into her house. I have had repair people work in my home, and they brought along paper "booties" that cover their shoes. These are better than slippers. They keep your floors clean and allow you to avoid embarrassing guests by asking them to remove their shoes. — Hope This Helps Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HINTS FROM HELOISE
Topsy-turvy coffee packaging is irritating Dear Readers: Here is my little Sound Off: I travel a lot and stay in different hotels and hotel/motel chains. Every hotel (or chain) carries a different brand of coffee, and the packages never open the same way. I was in Midland, Texas, recently doing a speech for their wonderful Meals on Wheels volunteers. The coffee packages in my hotel opened at the bottom of the package! Am I missing something? Things usually open at the top. Why can’t manufacturers make the packaging easy to open and easy to spot the little starting “tear?” I know this is minor, and I do
Hints from Heloise Columnist love being able to have a cup or two of fresh-brewed coffee in the morning, but have mercy on us road warriors! — Heloise FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Other uses for back scratchers: • Use to reach things on high shelves.
• Pull things from the back of a cabinet. • Unhook strung lights. • Reach under a bed. • Remove leaves from gutters. — Heloise BREAD HEELS Dear Heloise: My family saves bread heels and uses them as hamburger buns. No one in the family likes them for sandwiches, and they usually are thrown out. Instead of wasting them, we keep them in the freezer until we’re ready to use them. Just defrost and toast. — A Reader in New Mexico SOAP SCUM Dear Heloise: In one of your
articles, there was a solution for cleaning scum on glass (shower doors — Heloise) using shampoo. I have misplaced it. Could you reprint it, please? I thank you for your articles — they have been a blessing in so many ways. — Glenda B. in Louisiana Glenda, I would be happy to reprint it. There really is no “solution” to make. Just take some shampoo (a cheap one) and, with a scrubbie or a wet washcloth, scrub the glass and then rinse. If you are having a hard time getting the soap scum off, do this Heloise hint AFTER your shower, when all the “gunk” is soft. — Heloise

HI AND LOIS ZITS
BEETLE BAILEY FAMILY CIRCUS
DENNIS the MENACE
ARLO & JANIS
HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, June 25, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Relatives and family members might be camped out on your sofa. Have patience. Many of you also are enjoying family reunions. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The next month is rocky for transportation. Car problems, delays, flat tires and missed buses will be par for the course. Allow extra time for wiggle room. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Checks will be late in the mail, and financial matters could be delayed now and for the next few weeks. Just grin and bear it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It's easy to forget things now -- keys, books and papers -- because Mercury is retrograde in your sign. This lasts for several weeks, so just accept it. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) For the next month, your ability to dig up old answers from the past will be better than usual. It's as if you're able to go back in time and find what you need to know. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Old friends are back in your life again. This could be horrific, or it could be a wonderful chance to catch up on past histories and gossip. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Many of you will encounter old authority figures from your past now and in the next few weeks. This is a good time to finish old business that needs approval from others. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Travel plans might be delayed or canceled in the next several weeks as retrograde Mercury wreaks havoc with your plans. If you must travel, then go someplace you've been before. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) It's an excellent time to wrap up old business about inheritances, debt, shared property, insurance matters and taxes during the next month. You'll find loose details that usually escape you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Ex-partners might be back in your life again. This is either an unwelcome experience or an opportunity for closure. Your choice. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your efficiency at work definitely will suffer in the next month because of lost paperwork, goofy mistakes or mixed-up communication. Just accept this and give yourself extra time to do everything. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Ex-lovers and old flames might be back in your life again. (This could be exciting -- or not.) People in the arts can finish their projects with ease now. YOU BORN TODAY Your originality is one of the most captivating things about you. Others are intrigued with your conceptions. You're visual in your concepts and sometimes can make your dreams come true. You're a strong nurturer with both family and friends. Many of you have excellent money savvy. Your year ahead will be the beginning of a fresh, exciting cycle. Open any door! Birthdate of: Yann Martel, author; Ricky Gervais, actor/producer; Carly Simon, musician/author.

Fire rages, Colorado town braces for long evacuation DEL NORTE, Colo. (AP) — A colossal wildfire near a popular summer retreat in southern Colorado continues to be driven by winds and fueled by dead trees in a drought-stricken area, authorities said Sunday. The weather has prevented fire crews from making progress on the blaze, which grew overnight to 108 square miles, up from 100 on Saturday. The speed with which the fire has spread is exceptional: It was just below 50 square miles Friday evening. No structures have been lost in the fire, and no injuries have been reported. It is doubtful fire crews could establish any containment lines until there’s a break in the weather, pos-
sibly Tuesday, officials said. They remained optimistic they can protect the town, however. As of Sunday, officials firefighters remained focused on protecting South Fork, the Wolf Creek ski area and homes along Highway 149. Crews hoped to get aircraft up to drop water over the fire before afternoon winds of 30 to 40 miles an hour returned Sunday. Pete Blume, a commander with the Rocky Mountain Type 1 Incident Command Team, said the wildfire is the worst ever known to hit the Rio Grande National Forest. “It’s not typical to have these kinds of fires here,” said Blume. “But beetle kill and drought is also not the norm.” Firefighters are hoping
for a break in the high winds as well as the anticipated July monsoons to help them fight back the flames. Until then, Blume said, “with that much beetle kill and drought we could have every resource in the country here and still not put in a containment line.” Still, fire officials believe portions of the blaze will likely burn all summer in forested, nonresidential areas, with full extinguishment probably months away. The lightning-sparked blaze started June 5, but its rapid advance Friday prompted the evacuation of hundreds of visitors and the town’s 400 permanent residents. Residents and tourists were settling in for a long wait before they can return to their homes, cabins and RV parks. “They just said they had no idea how long it would be before we could back in South Fork,” said Mike Duffy, who owns the South Fork Lodge. Duffy said he and his wife, Mary, were able to get their personal possessions before fleeing fast-advancing flames that officials initially feared would over-

But with the fire still within three miles of South Fork, they are worried about the longterm impact of a prolong evacuation and news reports about the fire raging around the tourismdependent town.

the mountains to flee the heat. South Fork Mayor Kenneth Brooke estimates that between 1,000 to 1,500 people had to flee, including the summer visitors and permanent residents. More than 600 firefighters were battling the blaze, and more are coming every day. They also focused on newest arm of the fire as it crept through beetle kill toward the historic mining town of Creede, the last silver boom town in Colorado before the industry went
bust in the late 1800s. Elsewhere in Colorado, about a dozen fires also continued to burn. Firefighters were making progress on a 19-squaremile wildfire near Walsenburg in southern Colorado. The fire was 10 percent contained. And a wildfire in foothills about 30 miles southwest of Denver was expected to be fully contained Sunday evening. That fire burned 511 acres and forced 100 people to leave their homes.

Not a bad way to spend a vacation Sidney man has been volunteering at the Vectren Dayton Air Show since 1989 BY JIM DAVIS Civitas Media firstname.lastname@example.org There may be more exotic vacation destinations out there, but Matt Kleinhans is completely fine blocking out a week each summer to hang out in Dayton. The Sidney resident has been volunteering since 1989 for the Vectren Dayton Air Show Media Committee, where golf carts, walkie-talkies and box lunches take the place of more traditional summer recreation. During air show week â€” which wrapped up Sunday at Dayton International Airport â€” Kleinhans spent countless hours helping get reporters, photographers and television personalities where they needed to be to report on the annual event. And in return, he got to spend a week surrounded by all things aviation with a close-knit group of dedicated volunteers. â€œItâ€™s worth giving up a weekâ€™s vacation for,â€? said Kleinhans, a U.S. Air Force veteran who started volunteering at the suggestion of his cousin, Linda Anderson. â€œI enjoyed it that first year interacting with the performers and pilots and media, and I knew I was hooked after that.â€? He hasnâ€™t missed a year since, and the 46-year-old father of three
DAYTON (Marah, Austin and Kylee) has become a big part of the volunteer crew. â€œHeâ€™s a jack-of-all-trades â€Ś and heâ€™s a very organized man,â€? said media chairperson Shiela Wallace. â€œHeâ€™s truly my right-hand. I depend on him for everything.â€? Fellow volunteer Mary Poplawski said other committee members have come to count on Kleinhans for his willingness to help. â€œHeâ€™s really good at taking care of people, and if a job needs to get done, Matt does it,â€? she said. â€œWithout Matt here, there are things that just would not get done.â€? Kleinhans, who has been a police officer in Sidney since 1994, said a strong sense of commitment is shared by members of the volunteer committee, many of whom have spent several years working together. â€œIt is like an air show family,â€? he said, adding that his 14-year-old daughter Kylee helped volunteer this year. â€œWe come down and spend a week with people we only see once a year, and everyone has one common goal â€” to help put on the best air show that people can possibly see.â€? Fellow volunteer Mike McRill said that sense of dedication is
nothing new for Kleinhans, who has been his best friend since sixth grade. â€œIâ€™ve always seen that in him. As a police officer, heâ€™s been a role model to me and he always wants to help other people,â€? said McRill, who also serves with the Sidney Police Department. â€œWhen things arenâ€™t flowing the way they should, Matt just steps in and he is probably the most calming person I know.â€? Saturday, when wingwalker Jane Wicker and pilot Charlie Schwenker died in a fiery crash during the air show, that quality was particularly helpful as Kleinhans helped shuttle media personnel to and from a press conference following the tragedy. â€œIt was a sad day. We had a media interview with her the day before and I was able to interact with her for a few minutes,â€? Kleinhans said. â€œBut the show continues the next day. Thatâ€™s what the air show family is all about.â€? And although he isnâ€™t a performer, he is part of that family, where his contributions allow him to share his passion for aviation. â€œMatt has always had a love affair with airplanes and jets,â€? McRill said. â€œFor him, (volunteering) gives him a sense of sharing something he loves.â€? Not a bad way to spend a vacation.
Rivers receding in Calgary Thousands return to their homes CALGARY, Alberta (AP) â€” About 65,000 residents of Calgary were being allowed to return to their homes Sunday to assess the damage from flooding that has left Albertaâ€™s largest city awash in debris and dirty water. Some were returning to properties spared by flooding, but others were facing extensive repairs to homes and businesses. About 75,000 people had to leave at the height of the crisis as the Elbow and Bow rivers surged over their banks Thursday night. Three bodies have been recovered since the flooding began in southern Alberta and a fourth person was still missing. â€œWeâ€™ve turned a corner, but we are still in a state of emergency,â€? Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi said. â€œOur hearts and thought and prayers are with our colleagues downstream.â€? People in the eastern part of the province headed for higher ground as the flood threat remained. In Medicine Hat, Alberta, thousands of people have left their homes as water levels rose on the South Saskatchewan River. The river was not expected to crest until Monday, but by Sunday morning it was lap-
ping over its banks in lowlying areas and people were busy laying down thousands of sandbags. In Calgary, Nenshi said crews were working hard to restore services and he thanked residents for heeding the call to conserve drinking water. He had already warned that recovery will be a matter of â€œweeks and monthsâ€? and the damage costs will be â€œlots and lots.â€? While pockets of the cityâ€™s core were drying out, other areas were still submerged. The mayor didnâ€™t anticipate that anyone could return to work downtown until at least the middle of the week. The downtown area was evacuated Friday. The cityâ€™s public schools were also to remain closed Monday. Nathan MacBey and his wife found muddy water had risen to about kitchen counter level in their Calgary home at the peak of the flooding. His basement was still swamped and the main floor of the home was covered in wet mud. â€œThis is unprecedented,â€? said the father of two, his voice cracking with emotion. â€œNot being able to give our kids a home, thatâ€™s tough. â€Ś We can survive, itâ€™s just the instability for the kids.â€?
Alberta Municipal Affairs Minister Doug Griffiths said that 27 communities in Alberta were under states of emergency with some areas slowly starting to emerge from the watery onslaught and others still bracing for it Griffiths said no place has been hit harder than the town of High River south of Calgary and it will be some time before residents there will be allowed back. The waiting and worrying were causing tensions and emotions to run high, but Griffiths said virtually every home in the town of 18,000 would need to be inspected. More than 2,200 military personnel were involved in flood relief efforts, along with nine helicopters. Soldiers were helping evacuate an area around the mountain town of Canmore, laying down sandbags in Medicine Hat and assisting in road repairs in Kananaskis Country, west of Calgary. In High River, about 350 members of the Princess Patriciaâ€™s Canadian Light Infantry from Edmonton have been assisting police in reaching homes that still havenâ€™t been checked. Armored vehicles have been
churning through submerged streets and Zodiac watercraft have been used to reach the hardest-hit areas. High River Mayor Emile Blokland said the townâ€™s infrastructure has been dealt a critical blow and there is no timeline for when citizens can return. Royal Canadian Mounted Police Staff Sgt. Brian Jones said the atmosphere was â€œsurreal.â€? â€œWeâ€™re finding a great deal of mud, a great deal of sludge on the streets. The homes are secure. Itâ€™s almost like time stopped,â€? he said. Back in Calgary, the water has taken a toll outside residential neighborhoods as well. The Saddledome hockey arena, home of the National Hockey Leagueâ€™s Calgary Flames, was extensively damaged. The team said boards, dressing rooms, player equipment and several rows of seats were a total loss. The rodeo and fair grounds of the world-famous Calgary Stampede were also swamped, although Nenshi was optimistic that things would be cleared up in time for the show to open July 5. Nenshi said Sunday that all the major hotels in the downtown were closed and advised visitors to plan accordingly.

Afghans rush to learn risky art of defusing bombs CAMP BLACK HORSE, Afghanistan (AP) — In a desolate field outside Kabul, an Afghan soldier hunches over a knee-high robot equipped with cameras, multidirectional pincers and tank-treads built for rough terrain. Carefully, he attaches four bottles of water and a tiny explosive charge to the robot. He uses a remote control to guide it 50 meters (yards) away to his target: a simulated backpack bomb. “Explosion! Explosion! Explosion!” shouts the soldier, Naqibullah Qarizada, in a warning to others nearby. Then he remotely detonates the charge. A small dust cloud kicks up. If all has gone well, the blast has pushed the water into the bomb with enough force to knock out its triggering mechanism. But to be safe, his partner, Hayatullah, climbs into a heavy protective suit before lumbering over to pluck out the blasting cap and seal it in a fortified box. The two men are among hundreds of Afghan soldiers training to take over the dangerous fight against the war’s biggest killers: the Taliban-planted bombs known as IEDs that kill and maim thousands of people each year on and around the country’s roads and towns. A few years ago, there were almost no Afghan bomb disposal experts. Now, there are 369 but that’s far from enough. The international coalition is rushing to train hundreds
more before the exit of most coalition forces by the end of next year. Each day on average, two to three roadside or buried bombs explode somewhere in Afghanistan, according to numbers compiled by the United Nations, which says that the explosives killed 868 civilians last year, 40 percent of the civilian deaths in insurgent attacks. Among international forces, buried or roadside bombs accounted for 64 percent of the 3,300 coalition troops killed or wounded last year, the NATO force says. Known in military parlance as improvised explosives devices (IEDs), the bombs have long been a favorite Taliban weapon that can be remotely detonated by radio or mobile phone when a target passes by or triggered by pressure, like a vehicle driving over it. The U.S. military has over the years developed advanced detection and disposal techniques that manage to defuse about 40 to 50 IEDs each day, says Col. Ace Campbell, chief of the Counter-IED training unit. The coalition is working to transfer that knowledge to the Afghans who will be responsible once most foreign troops leave next year, and Campbell says Afghan teams are now finding and disposing about half of the bombs most days. “Whenever I hear about an IED or I find one myself maybe you will laugh, but I become very happy,” says
In this June 11photo, Afghan solider Naqibullah Qarizada hunches over a knee-high robot armed with cameras attaching four bottles of water and a tiny explosive charge to defuse a mine during an IED defusing training exercise on the outskirts of Kabul, Afghanistan. A few years ago, there were almost no Afghan bomb disposal experts. Now, there are 369 — and the international coalition is rushing to train hundreds more before the exit of most coalition forces by the end of next year. Hayatullah, 28, who has completed the highest level of training and like many Afghans uses just one name. “I am happy because it is my duty to defuse it, and I will save the lives of several people.” Hayatullah also has a personal reason for his chosen profession his father was killed in a mine explosion. He was just 13 when unknown attackers planted two anti-personnel mines outside their home in Parwan province, and he says the memory fuels his desire to save others. The country’s main bomb disposal school is located at Camp Black Horse, set among a dustswept field on Kabul’s east-
scarce. Bomb disposal units gained widespread fame with the 2008 film “The Hurt Locker,” but in real life the process while still dangerous is much slower and more methodical. The ultimate goal is to try not to approach a live bomb until it’s been neutralized, which is the point of the exercise with the robot and the protective suit. But with thousands of buried bombs and more being planted every day, it’s impossible to have such sophisticated tools everywhere. That’s why the program also trains regular Afghan army and police for four weeks in how to recognize signs of a smaller IED freshly moved earth, or perhaps a conveniently placed culvert next to a bridge and neutralize it in the crudest but simplest way: setting a smaller charge, moving far, far away and blowing it up in place. Even such basic disposal takes weeks of training. Sitting attentively on rows of benches under a lean-to in the field, a group of Afghan soldiers listens to contractor James Webber, a former U.S. Air Force bomb disposal expert, as he explains how long to make a fuse so whoever sets it can then dash away for four minutes, or 240 seconds, to safety before the charge blows. “So, 240 seconds divided by our burn rate — what do you get? Anyone got a calculator?” Webber asks. The recruits nod, squint, calculate.
leaders. “Some are getting killed, some are dropping out, but their numbers are growing.” Still, it is a race against time to produce enough experts to fill the gap left by foreign troops’ withdrawal. On Tuesday, NATO formally handed over full security responsibility to Afghanistan’s fledgling 350,000-strong security forces, though many of the remaining foreign troops will stay until next year in a support and training role. The goal is to have 318 full-fledged Explosive Ordnance Disposal teams, each with two or three Afghan experts, spread out around the country. But Afghan security forces now have less than 60 percent of the bomb specialists they need hence the fever pitch of training. “These guys are on a more accelerated program due to necessity,” Smith said. Equipping the Afghan teams is also a challenge. The coalition plans to distribute 12,000 metal detectors to regular police and army units, and each of the specialized disposal teams is slated to receive one of the high-tech robots that Qarizada and Hayatullah were working with. But Smith said each of the robots costs $17,000, and so far only about half of those needed are in the hands of Afghan teams. And that is not even taking into account who will maintain the sophisticated machines in a country where dust clogs nearly every machine and technical expertise is
ern outskirts, where a rusted-out Russian tank looms on a distant hill, a reminder of Afghanistan’s long legacy of war dating back to the 1980s Soviet occupation. Here, a team of about 160 instructors runs 19 different courses, ranging from a basic four-week awareness program for regular Afghan soldiers to the eight-month advanced “IED defeat” course that is a slightly shorter version of the U.S. Army’s own counter-explosives training. “We are giving them the best instruction that we have available, and they are picking it up,” said U.S. Army Maj. Joel Smith, one of the training program’s

Via wins Troy City Championship Staff Report
Another Troy Men’s City Championship in the books … and another win for Brad Via. That’s kind of been the trend for the last decade. On the final day of the tournament Sunday at Miami Shores Golf Course, Via came up clutch, shooting a 67 to end with a 137. It was a two-man race in the Champions Flight between Via and Ryan Groff, the reigning champ, on the final day. Groff, however, closed the final day with
a 70 for an overall score of 141 and went on to take runner-up. It was the 15th time Via has won the City Championship. Last year, Groff shot his way up the leader board on the final day with a 66 to deny Via his 10th City title in a row. But on Sunday, it was Via who put together the big round to seal the victory. “It feels good to get the win,” Via said. “He (Ryan) has beaten me in I think the last three tournaments we’ve played in, so it’s
nice to get one.” Jon Brading and Justin Weber tied for third in the Champions Flight with 148 each. In the Super Seniors Flight, Brent Adkins (143) defeated Doug Willoughby (143) in a playoff for the title. Tom Stickrod (146) finished three strokes back for third and Brent Flinn placed fourth with a 147. In fifth was Fred Monnin (150), while three others (Tom Mercer, Jack Holtel and Gary Weaver) tied for sixth with scores of 151. Craig Stammen (150) won the

Reds avoid sweep Latos leads team past D-Backs, 4-2 PHOENIX (AP) — Mat Latos started a new winning streak in grand style. The Cincinnati right-hander went 21 starts without a loss before Pittsburgh beat him on Tuesday. His next time out, he matched his career high with 13 strikeouts Sunday in a 4-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. “When he’s good, he’s real good,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. Shin-Soo Choo hit a leadoff
home run and Brandon Phillips added a two-run shot in the first inning off Randall Delgado (0-1) as the Reds averted a threegame sweep. That was plenty of offense for Latos (7-1), who allowed a run on six hits with one walk in 7 23 innings. “The first inning it took me a little while to I guess get into a groove,” he said. “The first inning I didn’t feel too good, didn’t feel too great with my command. Then I came out in the
second inning and made a little bit of an adjustment, and it worked.” Latos didn’t strike anyone out in the first two innings, then fanned 13 over the next 5 2-3. “Not too many guys score against this guy,” Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. “Look what he has done over the last 20 starts. We hung in there. We gave ourselves a chance to win. We hung in there enough to get

NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Authorities continue to investigate, but not talk about, the killing of a semi-pro football player whose body was found a mile from New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. A spokeswoman for the Bristol County district attorney’s office said Sunday that officials are not releasing details. Spokeswoman Yasmina Serdarevic said officials also are not talking about the cause of death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, whose body was found on
Monday. His death was ruled a homicide. Hernandez was questioned and his home searched as part of the police investigation into the Dorchester man’s death. State police officers and dogs searched Hernandez’s North Attleboro home for more than three hours on Saturday. An attorney for Hernandez has said he would not comment on the searches. New England Patriots spokesman Stacey James has said the team does not expect to
comment during the police investigation. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was waiting for the legal process to take its course. The Patriots drafted Hernandez out of Florida in 2010. He has since combined with Rob Gronkowski to form one of the top tight end duos in the NFL. He missed 10 games last season with an ankle injury and had shoulder surgery in April but is expected to be ready for training camp. Last summer, the Patriots gave him a five-year contract worth $40 million.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Emergency starter Pedro Hernandez allowed two runs in five innings, and the Minnesota Twins avoided a three-game sweep with a 5-3 win over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday. Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A Rochester when scheduled starter Mike Pelfrey was scratched because of a strained back and placed on the 15-day disabled list. Oswaldo Arcia and Josh Willingham each drove in a pair of runs while Trevor Plouffe’s RBI single in the fifth put Minnesota ahead for good. Hernandez, who was informed Saturday night that he might be needed, drove from Louisville, Ky., where Rochester was playing, and arrived in Cleveland at 4 a.m. Sunday. The left-hander (3-1) pitched around six walks and got the win despite throwing 45 of his 85 pitches for balls. Three Minnesota relievers allowed one run over the final four innings. Glen Perkins pitched the ninth for his 19th save. Michael Bourn opened the ninth with an infield hit but Mike Aviles bounced into a double play. Jason Kipnis doubled for his third hit of the game before Nick Swisher grounded out. Carlos Carrasco (0-3) allowed three runs in 4 2-3 innings. The right-hander, who missed all of last season because of elbow surgery, hasn’t won since June 29, 2011, when he defeated Arizona. Cleveland scored in the second on Yan Gomes’ sacrifice fly. Kipnis added an RBI double in the third while Drew Stubbs hit a solo homer in the seventh. Pelfrey’s back stiffened while running during batting practice Saturday and the decision was made to recall Hernandez, who is making his second stint with the Twins this season. He made eight previous appearances, going 2-1 with a 5.85 ERA. Hernandez started against the Indians on May 3 and allowed five runs over 5 1-3 innings in a no-decision. Minnesota’s starting pitchers have walked 11 batters in the last two games. P.J. Walters walked five in two-thirds of an inning Saturday.

Ken Duke wins Travelers Championship in playoff CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) — Ken Duke needed 187 starts on the PGA Tour to get his first win, securing it at a tournament that is building a reputation for such breakthroughs. The 44-year-old journeyman made a 2 foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole Sunday to beat Chris Stroud at the Travelers Championship. Stroud, who also was looking for his first title, had chipped in from 51 feet
on the 18th hole, to get to 12-under par and force the playoff. But Duke made the better approach shot on the second extra hole, bouncing his ball in front of the flag and rolling it close. “Yeah, it’s been a long time,” said Duke, who turned pro in 1994.” I’ve been on the Canadian tour, the mini tours, Asian Tour, South American Tour, all of them; Web.com, and it’s just great to be a part of
this big family on the PGA Tour.” Duke, who came in ranked 144th in the world, is the sixth golfer in eight years to get his first PGA Tour win here, joining J.J. Henry (2006), Hunter Mahan (2007), Bubba Watson (2010), Fredrik Jacobsen (2011) and Marc Leishman last year. Canadian Graham DeLaet finished a stroke back in third place with a 269. Watson finished
fourth, two shots behind, after making a six on the par-3 16th hole. “You gotta believe in yourself in everything you do,” Duke said. “That’s why those guys at the top are winning week in, week out because they believe they can do it. It’s kind of one of those things once you finally do it it might come easier the next time. That’s kind of the way I feel.” Duke wouldn’t have been in position to win at
all had luck not intervened on the 10th hole, when his ball ricocheted off a tree and onto the green to about 5 feet from the pin, allowing him to make birdie. After a 17-foot birdie putt on the next hole, he made a 45-footer on the 13th hole, a shot that looked as though it might go past the hole to the right, before falling in. He battled Watson for the lead down the back
nine, until the former Masters champion found trouble on the 16th. Watson put his drive into the water and put his next shot over the green. He finished two strokes back in fourth place. “The wind affected the first shot, and the wind didn’t affect the next shot,” Watson said. “I flew it three feet past the hole, which you can’t do right now because the greens are so firm.”

Truex Jr. ends streak
Sonoma win breaks 218-race losing skid SONOMA, Calif. (AP) — The post-race party was a blur after Martin Truex Jr.’s first win in 2007. The celebratory cool-down lap, the burnouts, the drive to Victory Lane all happened so fast. So he planned to savor every minute of his next win. He just didn’t think it would take six years. Truex snapped a 218race winless streak Sunday with an easy victory on the road course at Sonoma Raceway. It was only the second win of Truex’s career, but it put Michael Waltrip Racing in Victory Lane for the second year in a row after Clint Bowyer won here last season. with Overwhelmed emotion as he crossed the finish line, Truex made the celebration count. “I was a freaking mess. It was terrible,” he said. “I had to stop and start doing donuts because I couldn’t think about what I was doing. I tried to key the radio once and I couldn’t even talk. So I thought, ‘OK, I’m going to do some donuts and wave to the fans.’ But after I stopped the first time and did that, I calmed down a little bit and I just wanted to make sure I took my time coming back, because I remember at Dover it all happens way too fast. You never know when you’re going to that opportunity get again.” Truex blew out his rear tires, tried to wave to every single fan he saw, and took a slow drive around the picturesque road course on his way to Victory Lane, where the MWR crew was waiting to drink from the winner’s enormous wine glass. “I told them on the radio, if they’re waiting on me, too bad. I’m taking my time,” he said. “You can’t explain the feeling. When it’s been that long and you worked so hard and you’ve been so close … when you think at times, ‘Man, is this ever going to happen again?’ You can’t explain the feeling. It’s pretty surreal.” Truex worked his way to the front and used strategy to stay with the leaders. He then pulled away after the final restart and built a healthy lead of more than six seconds over Juan Pablo Montoya, who was running second until he ran out of gas on the final lap. “I’m ecstatic. But I’m not exactly sure how that happened,” said Truex, who admitted he wasn’t
Martin Truex Jr. celebrates after winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup series auto race on Sunday in Sonoma, Calif. pleased with his car following Friday’s practices. “The car was just phenomenal all day long and once I was near the front and didn’t have to run the car 110 percent, it just would stay with me on the long runs and I was able to drive away from everyone.” Montoya, who came into the weekend knowing if he didn’t win he would at least have a huge points day, dropped all the way to 34th after having to coast to the finish. He took a shortcut to skip the final turn, drifted to the finish line and parked. He then walked back to the garage, annoyed his Chip Ganassi Racing team never told him to save fuel. “We’ve got tools to prevent things like that from happening,” Montoya said. “I don’t know if all the fuel didn’t go,” Montoya said. “This is what we’ve been doing all year. We all work together and we’re all trying to do the best we can. Half the reason we’re 20-something in points we’re not 20-something in points because we’re not running fast. We’re 20something in points because we had a lot of
mechanical problems and days like this we throw them away.” Crew chief Chris Heroy was perplexed about the shortage. “We don’t know what happened we were on the same strategy as (Truex),” Heroy said through a team spokeswoman. “We’re going to go back to the shop and figure it out.” Montoya got little sympathy from Kyle Busch, who was spun by Montoya early in the race when Montoya drove too deep into a corner and wheelhopped over a curb. “Awww. My heart melts for jpmontoya who ran out of gas,” Busch tweeted moments after the race. Jeff Gordon finished second a week after he was wrecked six laps into the race at Michigan, but felt like he might have had a chance to win if he had not already committed to pit seconds before a caution came out early in the race. “I mean, I really do think we had a shot winning this race. We had a tremendous car,” Gordon said. “I knew we were screwed. There was nothing I could do; I was hard
on the brakes, fully committed. I couldn’t turn away from it, I just knew we had to eat it and go on, and that’s what we did.” Carl Edwards was third, followed by Kurt Busch, who climbed back from a pair of speeding penalties. “Yeah, we were fast, even on pit road. Twice,” Busch laughed. “I messedup, flat-out. I didn’t hit my tachometer right and I was speeding both times. It was one of those where I’m like, how does that happen? I just put myself in a position that was poor trying to get too much on pit road.” Bowyer wound up fifth in a strong day for the MWR Toyotas. Kasey Kahne was sixth and followed by Marcos Ambrose, who was extremely disappointed he didn’t win a race in which he was heavily favored. “It’s OK. We got a top-10 out of it,” Ambrose said. “I wanted to win. Of course I wanted to win, but that’s the way it goes.” Greg Biffle was eighth and followed by Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick in the top 10.
Park’s birdie earns NW Arkansas win ROGERS, Ark. (AP) — Inbee Park took some time off for rest and relaxation last week following her win at the LPGA Championship. The world No. 1 looked every bit at ease on her way to a second straight win her fifth of the year on Sunday at the LPGA NW Arkansas Championship. Park sank a 4-foot birdie on the first playoff hole against So Yeon Ryu , capping her final-round rally and once again
reminding the golf world who is clearly in control of the LPGA Tour this year. Sunday’s win was Park’s second straight in a playoff, following her final-day 39-hole effort at the PGA Championship. It came after she began the day two shots back of a group of four leaders, each who fell by the wayside as the South Korean took control at Pinnacle Country Club on her way to her seventh win in her last 23 starts. That kind of success
that has led to Park’s meteoric rise from 26th in the world rankings a year ago to the unquestioned top player leading into next week’s U.S. Open. “I’ve won a lot of times this year, but I still feel the pressure coming into the final round every time,” Park said. “I definitely felt a lot of pressure in the playoff. I think that’s going to happen no matter how many times I win. “It gets more exciting and more exciting, that’s
for sure.” After opening with a 2under 69 on Friday, Park vaulted to the top of the leaderboard with three straight birdies on the front nine on Sunday. She dropped a shot with a bogey on the par-3 11th before birdies on 14 and 18 sent her to the playoff. Park and Ryu finished the tournament tied at 12 under, one shot ahead of Mika Miyazato. It’s the second straight year Miyazato has finished as the runner-up.
■ CONTINUED FROM 13 him out of the game. You are not going to win them all.” After blowing a save in Cincinnati’s 4-3 loss on Saturday, Aroldis Chapman gave up a run in a shaky ninth but still got his 19th save. The loss snapped Arizona’s four-game winning streak. In the ninth, Chapman got the first two batters to bounce out to shortstop before Cliff Pennington singled and went to second on defensive indifference. Pinch-hitter Wil Nieves singled in Pennington to cut it to 4-2. A wild pitch moved Nieves to second, then Chapman hit Gerardo Parra in the right forearm with a 100 mph fastball. Pitching coach Bryan Price went to the mound to settle down Chapman, and the left-hander got Willie Bloomquist to pop out to center to end the game. Latos fanned six in a row in the third and fourth Delgado, Parra, Bloomquist, Paul Goldschmidt, Miguel Montero and Jason Kubel all swinging. Of Latos’ season-high 110 pitches, 79 were strikes. “Can’t complain with that,” Latos said. The big strikeout number was a mixed blessing, he said. “You start striking out a lot of players, you start throwing a lot of pitches,” Latos said. “Maybe it would have been great to go all nine and not strike out 13, but I’ll take it. It was a good win.” He said his slider “felt good coming out of my hand.” “That and the changeup,” he said. “The changeup is a pitch I’ve been working on all season.” The Reds jumped on Delgado from the start. Choo hit an 0-2 pitch into the swimming pool area in right field, his fourth leadoff homer of the season and ninth of his career. Zach Cozart followed with a double, then
after Joey Votto struck out looking, Phillips’ homer to left made it 3-0. Choo and Phillips each have 11 home runs this season. Phillips had been hitting .164 since missing four games after he was hit by a pitch in the left forearm at Pittsburgh on June 1. “It felt good to come through for the team,” he said. “I haven’t been doing my job lately but you know I’m trying, I’m trying to step my game up. I’m not my normal self. I’m not 100 percent, but the thing is there’s no excuses. I’m still in the lineup so I’ve got to do my job.” Cincinnati added an unearned run in the second. Xavier Paul led off with a double, then Pennington bobbled Devin Mesoraco’s grounder down the third base line for an error. Latos sacrificed the runners to second and third, and after Choo walked to load the bases, Cozart brought Paul home with a sacrifice fly to the wall in left-center. Delgado went five innings, allowing four runs three earned and six hits. The right-hander, who came to Arizona from Atlanta as part of the Justin Upton trade, made his second start since being called up from Triple-A Reno to bolster a rotation depleted by the 10-game suspension of Ian Kennedy and a shoulder injury to Brandon McCarthy. The Diamondbacks broke through in the eighth when Parra doubled with one out, then advanced to third on Bloomquist’s groundout. Goldschmidt drew a twoout walk and Montero singled Parra home to make it 4-1, maintaining Arizona’s status as the only team in the majors not to be shut out this season. Left-hander Manny Parra relieved Latos and got Jason Kubel to ground out to first to end the inning.

Clippers land new coach in Doc Rivers BOSTON (AP) — Doc Rivers will be the next coach of the Los Angeles Clippers if the NBA approves the rare but not unprecedented trade of an active coach, a Boston Celtics official told The Associated Press on Sunday night. The deal would bring Boston a first-round draft pick in 2015, according to the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal couldn’t be final until a trade call with the NBA office. Rivers, who had three years and $21 million left on his contract with the Celtics, must also reach an agreement on a new deal with the Clippers. Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said the team had no announcement. The tentative agreement on Sunday wraps up weeks of haggling over the deal and frees Rivers from
presiding over the dismantling of the team that won the franchise’s 17th NBA title in 2008. The Celtics and Clippers have also discussed sending Kevin Garnett to Los Angeles in a package with Rivers for draft choices, center DeAndre Jordan and point guard Eric Bledsoe. But NBA commissioner David Stern nixed those talks this week, saying teams aren’t allowed to trade active players for a coach. Rivers took over the Celtics in 2004 in the midst of the longest title drought in franchise history and with thanks to the New Big Three of Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen guided them to the 2008 NBA title. They returned to the NBA Finals two years later, losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in seven games.

Federer begins quest for 8th title LONDON (AP) — As he has six previous times, Roger Federer will open Wimbledon today as the defending champion, stepping onto Centre Court for the first match of what he hopes will be another twoweek stay at the All England Club. It’s an honor reserved for the men’s titleholder. That scheduling perk is also where any hint of preferential treatment for Federer comes to a halt. Because of the way the draw came out, Federer could have to defeat Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray before even getting to the final. “I’m ready for the challenge,” Federer said. “I like tough draws. I don’t shy away from them.”
Federer’s quest for a record eighth Wimbledon title begins against Victor Hanescu of Romania. Murray also plays Monday, wrapping up the day’s action on Centre Court against Germany’s Benjamin Becker. Nadal, who comes in with a stretch of nine straight appearances in tournament finals since returning from his knee injury, faces Belgium’s Steve Darcis on Court 1. Sitting back watching it all will be top-seeded Novak Djokovic, who is on the opposite side of the draw and, on paper, has the easiest path to the final. No. 4 David Ferrer is the biggest roadblock on his side of the bracket. “I think it’s going to be a
great Monday for tennis,” Djokovic said with a smile. He’s the 11-10 favorite at the London sports books and will open Tuesday barring rain, which is not in the forecast for most of the first week. Third-seeded Federer’s tough draw, to say nothing of his age (31) and his lessthan-inspiring 2013 season makes him something of a long shot this time at Wimbledon. He’s listed at 91 behind fifth-seeded Nadal (9-2), second-seeded Murray (7-2) and Djokovic. Then again, grass is considered Federer’s best surface and the lone tournament he has won this year came this month on grass at Halle, a tuneup in Germany that Federer has won six
times. “The more you play on it, the more you learn about it,” Federer said. “Today I know what it takes, which is a good thing. The excitement is the same. Still hungry and wanting to win and wanting to prove how good I can play.” Sounding at times like a fan of Murray’s during his 45-minute news conference, conducted in English, French and Swiss-German, Federer conceded that as he entered his final against the Scot last year, he wondered if it was, in fact, Murray’s time to finally break through at a major. Federer fought off Murray for a fourset victory to extend his record Grand Slam title haul to 17.
Wimbledon spat Williams, Sharapova trade volleys LONDON (AP) — As her agent nodded along approvingly from a frontrow seat, Serena Williams sounded contrite and composed. Well-rehearsed, too. Williams even managed to crack herself up with a couple of jokes during her news conference at Wimbledon as the defending champion, where the primary topic was hardly her 31-match winning streak or her bid for a sixth title at the All England Club or her injured sister Venus’ absence from the field. Instead, more than half the questions at Sunday’s session revolved around themes generating the most buzz on the eve of tennis’ oldest and most prestigious Grand Slam tournament: what Williams was quoted as saying in a recent magazine article and Maria Sharapova’s surprisingly forceful verbal swipe in reaction to that story. “It definitely hasn’t been easy,” the No. 1ranked Williams said about the stir created by a Rolling Stone profile posted online Tuesday. “And I feel like I really wanted to say: I apologize for everything that was said in that article.” Williams already had issued a statement expressing regret for remarks about the 16year-old victim in the Steubenville, Ohio, rape case. On Sunday, Williams said she approached the No. 3-ranked Sharapova to try to smooth things over by extending an apology at a pre-tournament players’ party Thursday. The backand-forth between two of the sport’s most popular and successful women can be traced to a passage where the story’s author surmised that something critical Williams said during a telephone conversation with her sister referred to Sharapova. But Thursday’s interaction didn’t end the matter because Sharapova delivered this broadside at her news conference Saturday: “If she wants to talk about something personal, maybe she should talk about her relationship and her boyfriend that was
Defending women’s champion Serena Williams speaks to the media during a press conference Sunday at Wimbledon. married and is getting a divorce and has kids.” Given a chance to react directly to that swipe 24 hours later, Williams declined, saying: “I definitely was told of (Sharapova’s) comments. I definitely like to keep my personal life personal. I think it would be inappropriate for me to comment on it.” All in all, nothing tennis related has drawn nearly as much attention in the run-up to Wimbledon. That might change Monday, when play begins and four-time major champion Sharapova is among those scheduled to be on court, facing 37th-ranked Kristina Mladenovic of France. Also on the schedule: two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka, 2011 Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova, and a matchup between up-and-coming Americans Sloane Stephens and Jamie Hampton. The honor of the year’s first match on Centre Court goes to the defending men’s champion, Roger Federer. “You feel very unique, clearly, because you are the one opening the court,” said Federer, who will be bidding for a record eighth
Wimbledon championship. “I think it’s a big deal for, also, the players I’ve played, who got the ‘unluck’ or luck of the draw to play me in that first round.” This time, the recipient of that “unluck” was Victor Hanescu of Romania, who’s never made it past the third round in seven previous Wimbledon appearances. Others playing Monday include No. 2 Andy Murray, the runner-up a year ago; and No. 5 Rafael Nadal, whose 12 Grand Slam titles include two at Wimbledon. Federer could face Nadal in the quarterfinals, with the winner possibly meeting Murray in the semifinals. “I’d rather Rafa and Roger were on the other side of the draw,” said Murray, aiming to give Britain its first male champion at Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936, “but they’re not.” No. 1 Novak Djokovic, meanwhile, is expected to have an easier path through other half of the field and won’t get started until Tuesday. That’s also when Williams is scheduled to play. By the sound of things Sunday, she might be pleased to be able to focus on tennis rather than talk-
ing. “There’s one thing I’m really good at,” said the 31-year-old Williams, the oldest woman to top the WTA rankings, “and that’s hitting the ball over a net, in a box. I’m excellent.” Certainly true. She won her 16th Grand Slam title by beating Sharapova two weeks ago at the French Open, and declared Sunday, “It’s great for women’s tennis when we play each other.” (That might be because Williams has won their past 13 matches.) Williams is 74-3 overall and has collected three of the past four major titles since the start of Wimbledon in 2012. That, perhaps not coincidentally, is when she began working with French tennis coach Patrick Mouratoglou, to whom Williams has been linked romantically. Neither has confirmed publicly whether they’re a couple, but Sharapova’s shot on Saturday was taken as a reference to Williams and Mouratoglou. Sharapova was responding to a question about the portion of the Rolling Stone story in which Williams spoke to her sister about what the reporter described as “a top-five player who is now in love.”

Past Yankees gather for Old-Timers’ Day NEW YORK (AP) — Orlando Hernandez and his high socks made it back to Yankee Stadium. There he was on the mound, across the street from where he helped the New York Yankees win three straight World Series titles from 1998-2000. “I feel great. It’s a big day for me after a lot of years,” El Duque said. “I come back today after maybe three or four years. I’m happy. I’m happy. I’m excited, you know?” He was introduced to a warm welcome at his first
Old-Timers’ Day on Sunday in the Bronx. For the Yankees, it was the 67th time they’ve welcomed back their former players. “This is the one place that can still pull this off, because of the tradition and because of the fans,” Paul O’Neill said. “The history of baseball seems to be here.” Many members of the most recent multi-championship run were there. O’Neill, now a TV broadcaster for the YES Network, tweeted a photo of his position from the outfield. That was after David Wells
clowned for the crowd by throwing a pitch well behind O’Neill’s head. On a warm day in the Bronx, former Yankees of every stripe were all introduced. They came out to applause and took their spots on the first and third base lines. From Brian Dorsett, who made 60 plate appearances for New York in 1989 and 1990, to former outfielder and manager Lou Piniella, they came out, waved and soaked up the love, like at a particularly athletic family reunion.
Then, with everyone standing on the lines, white pinstriped uniforms gleaming in the sun, out came Yogi. Berra, who is 88 now, was wearing a uniform that looked the same as it did back in his playing days, down to the No. 8 on the back and a Yankees cap. As he was driven onto the field in a golf cart festooned with tiny American flags, the cheers for him grew louder and louder until the cart containing the former Yankees catcher stopped behind home plate.
Chicago Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane (88) celebrates with center Jonathan Toews (19) and defenseman Duncan Keith (2) after scoring a goal against the Boston Bruins in the second period during Game 5 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Finals Saturday in Chicago.
Blackhawks beating Bruins at their own game BY JIM LITKE The Associated Press CHICAGO (AP) — A dozen slices of wheat bread and two plates of quartered oranges sat untouched on a table in the middle of the Boston locker room, fortifications for an overtime period that never came. In one corner of the room, attendants piled sticks into equipment bags as fast as they could. In the other, Bruins defensemen Zdeno Chara impatiently kept climbing off a table before the trainer massaging his sore right thigh was done. The team bus was already idling in a loading dock nearby. After a decisive 3-1 win by the Blackhawks on Saturday night in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the Bruins apparently couldn’t get out of town fast enough. Whether they’ll make it back to Chicago for Game 7 rests on the slim hope that they’ll be able to generate more offense than they managed in the third period, or the rest of the series for that matter. “We had some momentum there,” Boston goaltender Tukka Rask said afterward. “We just ran out of time.” More troubling, though, the Bruins are down 3-2 and fast running out of options. Coach Claude Julien’s plans to slow the highflying Blackhawks and win another slugfest, the way the Bruins hemmed in and outhit the similarly offensive-minded Penguins, is in need of serious adjustment. It has been since the Blackhawks rolled out to a 3-1 lead in Game 4 three nights ago, forcing the Bruins to chase the game and leave more and more space open behind them to the opportunistic Chicago attackers. “That’s not our game,” Rask said. “We don’t want to take too many chances. We got desperate out there.” The Blackhawks’ last goal in this one was an empty-netter with 14 seconds left. They began that final period ahead 20, and didn’t look flustered, relying on persistent forechecking and packing in the defense, even after Chara closed the gap with a short slap shot from the left face-off circle nearly four minutes in that beat goalie Corey Crawford where else? up on the glove side. So if all you heard was the score from this one, after watching the four previous games there were 18 goals combined in the two that Chicago won, but just five in Boston’s two wins you would have bet the Bruins won. They’re a defensive-minded bunch who don’t give up goals and score just enough. But at the moment, they can’t quite manage either trick. Making matters worse, center Patrice Bergeron was taken to a hospital for observation
after playing just 49 seconds of the middle period, and there were no updates on his condition after the game. Bergeron is tied with David Krejci for the team lead in goals with nine, but that only covers half his value. He was edged out by Chicago’s Jonathan Toews for this season’s Selke Trophy, awarded to the league’s best defensive forward, so his absence could spell double-trouble come Monday night. “I feel we had some pretty decent chances, but I believe with Bergie in the lineup, I believe we would have gotten that second goal,” Krejci said. “I think we were pretty close a couple of times. It’s sad to see him go down. I don’t know how he feels right now. I don’t know if he’ll be back next game or not, but we definitely missed him in the third.” “We’ve got to do everything,” Krejci added a moment later, “to get the first goal in Game 6.” That likely won’t come easily for Chicago, either, since Toews sat the entire third period on the bench after getting hammered by Chara. The Bruins have been mugging him throughout the series and the league’s unwritten rule about not discussing injuries anything above the waist, including a concussion, is described with the catchall phrase “upper-body injury” leaves Toews’ status in question as well. But the Hawks might be the deepest team in the NHL across the front line and coach Joel Quenneville has plenty of scorers ready to step into Toews’ slot with the first line. Andrew Shaw moved up to claim the centerman’s place alongside Patrick Kane and Bryan Bickell and the offense barely lost a stride. Quenneville, in fact, seemed less worried about Chicago’s ability to attack than he did getting a Toews-caliber commitment from all of his forwards to bottle up Boston behind their own blue line. Shaw, a rookie, doesn’t have the numbers or trophies Toews does, but it’s clear he’s already bought into the idea of following the captain’s lead. Asked whether this game had “broken” the Bruins, he shut the question down almost before it was complete. “You can’t say that,” he said. “They’re a great team. We saw what they did in the Toronto series, coming back in that last game. We know they’ll push to the end.” The Bruins erased a 41 deficit with 11 minutes left in Game 7 against the Maple Leafs and advanced. But Chicago is in a different class. The Blackhawks are more skilled, shift vs. shift, than anybody they’ve run into all season long, and as Rask pointed out, they punish teams that open up the ice trying to play catch-up.
