Dems: Romney is out of touch Rodney King dies in L.A. His beating stunned the nation, left Los Angeles smoldering and helped reshape race relations and police tactics. And in a quavering voice on national television, Rodney King pleaded for peace while the city burned. But peace never quite came for King not after the fires died down, after two of the officers who broke his skull multiple times were punished, after Los Angeles and its flawed police department moved forward. His life, which ended Sunday at age 47 after he was pulled from the bottom of his swimming pool.

Conservatives win election in Greece Fears of an imminent Greek exit from Europe’s joint currency receded Sunday after the conservative New Democracy party came first in a critical election and pro-bailout parties won enough seats to form a joint government. As central banks stood ready to intervene in case of financial turmoil, Greece held its second national election in six weeks after an inconclusive ballot on May 6 and the subsequent collapse of coalition talks.

for candidate’s downtown stop

BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney greeted more than 1,500 supporters to help build support for his bid for the White House Sunday in front of the iconic K’s Hamburger Shop in Troy. “Thank you so much. What a generous, enthusiastic crowd you have here,” Romney said before introducing his wife Ann TROY and their t h r e e grandchildren after U.S. House of Representatives and Miami County’s 8th district Representative, House Speaker John Boehner, and Ohio’s U.S. Senator Rob Portman gave their support for Romney’s bid. “We here to take back America,” Romney said on the back of a flat-bed truck for a 10 minute rally cry amidst the crowd jockeying for a closer look and a possible handshake with the GOP nominee for president. Romney arrived at approximately 6 p.m. in front of crowds that waited for more than two hours for a closer look at Romney on his “Every Town Counts”

We’re here to turn this country around and give hope back for America.” Romney mocked President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign cry of “Hope and Change,” stating that the current President is now “hoping to change the subject.” “No way, Mr. President. You are out of ideas, you

are out of excuses and, come November, you’re out of office,” Romney said to the cheering crowds. “We’re here to collect and Ohio will not turn a one-term proposition into an eightyear proposition. “We’re going to get America growing again for the people across the country,” Romney continued. “We agree everybody deserves a fair shot, but $1 trillion dollars in debt and pushing that burden on to our kids — is that a fair

shot?” Romney spoke for 10 minutes about his three top priorities if elected in November. Romney said his first priority would to tap into the nation’s natural resources for the United States to become “energy independent.” Romney said his second priority is to repeal national health-care legislation known as “ObamaCare” and his third initiative is to balance the nation’s budget. Romney wrapped up his speech with a nod to veterans in the crowd and a promise to restore the nation’s military and to “grab the torch to have a strong military, strong country.” “I do, I will and together we’ll restore this great country — Ohio could make the difference to save this great country,” said Romney in closing,

Crowd sounds off on visit BY NATALIE KNOTH MELANIE YINGST Staff Writers


Art Disbrow of Troy said he couldn’t miss out on the chance to see Mitt Romney speak in Troy. He heard the news of the Republican presidential candidate’s upcoming visit while fishing in northern Canada. Sunday he drove home, almost underestimating the time it would take to get back. “I hadn’t seen my wife for 11 days and I came straight here. Even brought my fish here; they’re sitting on ice in the van,” he said, laughing along with his wife Joanne.

Portman, Boehner bring added GOP presence Ohio Senator on long list of possible VP running mates BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer If “Ohio Believes,” then Troy Republican supporters have been converted to help put presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the Oval Office. Accompanying Romney’s Sunday stop on his “Every Town Counts” tour were U.S. Senator Rob 6 Portman, a potential vice president

TROY candidate, and House Speaker John Boehner, Miami County’s 8th district congressional representative. “Thanks for coming here to wish the next president a ‘Happy Father’s Day,’” Portman said before a crowd of more than 1,500 supporters in front of the K’s Hamburger Shop Sunday. “We’re here today because we’re concerned, and as Ohioans, we are in the ‘heart of it all.’” Portman, Ohio’s U.S. Senator since 2010, is on the long list of

Crowd • CONTINUED FROM 1 Disbrow said he lived in Michigan when Romney’s father George was governor of Michigan. He even had the same doctor as Romney’s mother. But his support for Romney all comes down to politics. “I believe what he believes,” Disbrow said. Calling themselves big Romney supporters, Marilyn and Ray Wagoner say they are impressed with Romney’s business knowhow and can’t picture four more years under President Barack Obama. “We’ve given him three and a half years, and he hasn’t fixed the situation or even attempted to fix the situation,” Ray said. While waiting in line to go through security, Stephen King of Piqua said he and his wife Klarinda had to witness “the piece of history” taking place in Troy. Both admitted that they’re not sure if Romney was the best pick for the Republicans, but they’re satisfied with his campaign thus far. “We’re hoping to see the next president. That’s not Obama,” Klarinda said. “I know what I don’t want.” Stephen, on the other hand, said he’s become disillusioned by the current state of politics. “I’ve lost faith with a lot of politics because they argue like school kids,” he said. Linda Fox, attending with her husband Marvin, said Romney’s business


A crowd reacts as former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney speaks to a crowd Sunday at K’s Hamburger Shop in Troy. strategy is far superior to Obama’s. “We need someone who understands how to run the business and balance the business. We need someone who has experience — not textbooks,” she said. Marvin agreed that Obama is out of touch with business owners, adding that the current president walks the line of socialism. “We want to support a presidential candidate that

has the chance to change the country and bring it back to us. We can’t have a president that doesn’t follow the Constitution and relies on executive orders.” Fox said Romney gave a riveting speech that covered his topics of concern. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — dubbed Obamacare — is particularly problematic, Marvin said. “We need a free-enter-

prise health-care plan. Whenever the government gets involved, it screws it up. Stick with fixing our streets …” he said. Owning a car dealership for more than 37 years, Ron Erwin said he came out to support Romney’s bid for the Oval Office. “It’s great! I think this is wonderful,” Erwin said. “This is a good man and (Romney) did it the hard way.” Erwin said he believes the November election is “the biggest election in 40 years.” “We’ve seen some challenging times and we can’t afford four more years,” Erwin said. Erwin said he believes government agencies “are out of control” in terms of spending. “All the support has been through handouts and we need to pick things up and get back to work — I’ve worked hard all my life.” Two recent University of Dayton graduates, 21 yearold Marina Schemmel, of Troy, and Katie Chapman, 22, of Fairborn, came out to the Romney rally to support the Republican. Schemmel said she was affected by Obama policies when she tried to apply for loans to attend law school at the University of Cincinnati. “The only loans that are left are unsubsidized and interest on them adds up pretty fast,” Schemmel said. Schemmel said she has shook Romney’s hand at a rally in Dayton and hopes to volunteer to campaign for him before November elec-

tions and has always enjoyed politics as a political science major at the University of Dayton. “I’m a big Romney fan and I’m here to support him and Boehner,” she added. Chapman said she’s felt the squeeze the economy has on fresh graduates, applying for more than 100 jobs and cultivating only two interviews with her business degree. “It’s really discouraging and it’s frustrating trying to find a good full-time job — those are hard to find,” Chapman said, adding she’s applied for jobs in Ohio but also in Chicago. Both women agreed they enjoyed spending their Sunday afternoon in the hot sun as witnesses to history in the making. “It’s exciting to actually see it happen and to say I was there,” Chapman said. Rose and Jim Kaverman traveled from Greenville to support Romney. “We need a change,” Rose Kaverman said. “It’s just very important for people to to vote because this election is so important. This election will have the biggest impact on our kid’s future.” Rose said she feels lucky to be employed, but has seen other families lose their jobs and their homes during the Obama administration. “When it comes down to it, America needs to wake up,” Kaverman said. “Obama has had his chance so why would you put him back in office if things haven’t changed for the better?”

Romney • CONTINUED FROM 1 thanking the crowds and handshakes before heading inside for the Troy’s campaign classic order of a K’s Hamburger Shop cheeseburger and milkshake. Romney kicked-off Father’s Day with a pancake breakfast in Brunswick, then traveled to an outdoor rally in Newark before grabbing a few cheeseburgers — and hopefully a few more November votes — in Troy, before attending a private campaign dinner in Cincinnati.

Dems • CONTINUED FROM 1 don’t protect our neighborhoods and grow our youth. It doesn’t stop there: Mitt Romney stood ‘110 percent’ behind Gov. John Kasich on Issue 2 in an attempt to take away basic rights from Troy school teachers and other public sector employees. Troy simply can’t afford Romney economics.” Fisher asserted that Romney cut investments in local aid, which resulted in the loss of 14,500 jobs for teachers, police officers, librarians and others during his time as governor of Massachusetts. He also accused Romney of hiking taxes and fees by $750 million a year. Miami County Democrats vicechair Amy Sparks said that as a teacher and a mother, she particularly fears Romney’s plans for the education system. “Our teachers work hard every

day to help ensure our children are prepared to move our state and our country forward,” Sparks said. “President Obama is helping to protect these jobs and make sure we have the resources we need to provide the best education possible for our youth.” The Democrats stated that more than 300,000 teaching jobs are at stake under Romney. Sparks added, “300,000 isn’t just a number. These are our co-workers, neighbors and friends.” U.S. Navy veteran George Parker, a volunteer for the Obama campaign, said he is disconcerted by Romney’s economic plans, which he said fail to recognize the concerns of working class Americans. “I see a nation with far too many people unemployed and underemployed,” he said, adding that Romney is more concerned with the “ideological battle” of the two parties

rather than issues facing Americans. Following the press conference, Democrats and Obama supporters took their grievances to Romney’s speech outside the local restaurant. Some Democrats waved signs behind the crowd gathered at K’s, chanting, “Hey Romney, you’re so rich; you’re so rich, you make us sick.” Talking to a few people in line, Romney volunteer Tyler Byrum responded, “Obama’s a millionaire, c’mon.” During Speaker of the House John Boehner’s speech, some Democrats far back in the crowd began shouting “Romney, go home” so loud that people gathered at the front near Romney turned around, giving disapproving looks. The STAFF PHOTO/ANTHONY WEBER chanting continued during Romney’s Eli Parker, along with his grandmother Janet Parker of Piqua, speech, leading some Republicans to shout in response, “Romney, Romney, hold signs supporting President Obama on the Public Square Sunday in Troy. Romney.”



potential vice-presidential running mates for Romney. Portman said with Romney in office, he would “get the private sector back” and will work “to help U.S. Congress lead an effort to repeal current President Barack Obama’s legislation, especially his health-care program known as ‘ObamaCare.’ “We are proud to have an Ohioan as Speaker of the House,” said Portman before introducing Boehner. “Let’s show Romney that help is on the way.”

said before introducing Romney to the crowd. In front of several hundred “Ohio Believes” posters, Miami County Republican chairman John “Bud” O’Brien rallied supporters before Portman, Boehner and Romney arrived. O’Brien said in less than 16 hours, Miami County Republican members knocked on more than 500 doors of registered independent voters to invite them to Sunday’s rally. “Are you prepared to do the same thing?” O’Brien said to the anxious crowd. “We need Romney elected and Speaker Boehner needs his help. He can’t get anything done with someone else occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. We need to create jobs and (former) Governor Romney knows how to do it.”

Portman introduced Boehner as “my friend and neighbor,” a man who has served as Speaker of the House since 2010. Boehner is the 8th district representative — which includes all of Miami County, as well as Darke and Preble counties and most of Butler and Mercer counties, and the northeastern corner of Montgomery County. Boehner said Miami County holds “a warm spot in my soul.” He started his political career 22 years ago in 1990 when “people couldn’t say my name.” “It’s been my pleasure to

Farmers Market to open in Troy For the Troy Daily News


Downtown Troy soon will be alive on Saturday mornings with arrival of shoppers, fresh food, farmers and artisans as the Downtown Troy Farmers Market opens near the town square. The market will kick-off the 2012 season 9 a.m. to noon June 23 on South Cherry Street, and will run every Saturday through Sept. 15. After a successful first season in 2011, the market has doubled in size to include more than 30 vendors. The expanded market has commitments from 13 food growers, eight food producers and 10 artisans. Visitors can expect to find seasonal produce, maple syrup, fresh cut flowers, jams, jellies, pies, breads, pastries, herbs, artisan cheeses, plants, art, crafts and more. Live music and other entertainment will enhance the experience each week, including cooking demonstrations, outdoor yoga and living history. The venue selected for the Downtown Troy Farmers Market offers convenience to shoppers and the all-important shade and close parking for the farmers. Visitor parking will be plentiful in the adjacent public “free on Saturdays” lot, accessed via West Franklin St. Vendors will be set up in the shade,

made available courtesy of the threestory historic buildings on South Cherry St. The Downtown Troy Farmers Market is presented by Troy Main Street Inc. and made possible by a grant from the General Fund of the Troy Foundation and the sponsorship of Patty Rose & Associates, Allstate Insurance. “The farmers market provides another exciting reason to be downtown,” said Rose, sponsor and Troy Main Street president. “Not only can you buy healthy, local food, but you can enjoy the experience of an open air market and a social gathering space.” Karin Manovich, executive director of Troy Main Street, said she is expecting the farmers market to have a positive impact in downtown Troy. “Last year many downtown businesses reported increased sales on Saturdays. Other businesses are adjusting their Saturday hours to be open during the market.” Walk-in business map cards will be available at the market to assist visitors in exploring downtown. For more information, call market manager Susan Funderburg at 339-5455 or visit

The crowd on the courthouse lawn had just heard some "pickin' and grinnin'" by Big Rockin' Daddy & His Bluegrass Boys, a local band. All around, folks visited as they packed up picnic baskets and gathered their blankets and lawn chairs, getting ready to go home. It was almost night. Showtime. I stepped from behind Felix's statue and into the glare of a blinding floodlight that had been shining on the band. I was wearing a white sheet with slits cut for my eyes, and it was covered with big splotches of ketchup to look like blood. From the other side of the bright light, someone yelled, "What in blue blazes is that?" "It's a ghost!" someone else hollered. Another man piped up. "That ain't no ghost. It's just the boy who was in the spaceman suit. That editor's trying to snooker us again." Little did they know that this time, Jake was as clueless as they were. "Betcha a dollar to a doughnut that crazy editor's got a rope hooked up to ol' Casper here," a man said. "And he's probably hiding in that tree again, holding the other end." He pointed to the branches overhead. "He's gonna make the kid float in the air, just like he did with that fake flying saucer." The crowd looked high in the tree, trying to spot Jake. A few of them came over to me and sawed their hands through the air to search for a rope or wire. "I don't see nothin'," a woman said. "Guess he ain't goin' airborne this time." A tough-looking, muscular guy with tattoos swiped his hand on my ketchup-soaked sheet. He licked his finger and announced, "It's my favorite vegetable – ketchup!" That comment really got the crowd worked up, and now they were laughing and jeering. I turned to Felix. He was standing at my side but was invisible to everyone except me. "Felix, this is a bad idea," I said. "I have ze back of you," Felix said. "I think you mean, you've got my back," I said. "But it's the rest of me I'm worried about." "I've got ze front, too," Felix said. I looked through the eyeholes of the sheet I was wearing, and my stomach started to churn. I recognized some of the food throwers from the alien disaster. I could tell by the gleam in their eyes – they were ready to have some more fun. I looked around for the three bullies from my school and was glad to see they weren't there. "Speak to us, oh great spirit," a woman hollered out sarcastically at me. I stood there, getting up my nerve. "Uh... boo," I finally said, not even sounding convincing to myself. In a sing-songy voice, a man said, "Can't hear you." I raised it up a notch. "Boooo! Boooo!" I yelled, but it came out sounding high-pitched and kind of whiny. "Boooooo, boooooo," a mocking, nasal voice echoed back. Others joined in. Before long, it sounded like a bunch of angry fans booing the refs at a football game. I saw a kid who had brought a bag of jawbreakers to the bluegrass concert. He gave handfuls of the hard candy to his buddies, and they began to inch toward me. I knew I was in

trouble. They unleashed a barrage of jawbreakers, and it stung through the sheet. I noticed some of the adults pulling fruit out of their picnic baskets. Here we go again, I thought. "Felix, isn't this what you French folks call 'déjà vu'?" I asked. "Do something!" Then I spotted Monty McGarrity. He raced to the front of the pack, crouched sideways in his pitching stance, and let fly with a baseball, right at my nose. Just as the blazing fastball was about to smash me into next year, it swerved crazily and circled me, building up speed. Then it shot back toward Monty, like out of a slingshot. "Oui, oui, mon ami. Déjà vu, indeed!" Felix said. Only this time the object didn't stop in mid-air in front of Monty. Instead, it slammed into his belly. "Oommmph," he said, crumpling to the ground, gripping his stomach. "I told you I had ze front of you," said Felix. "Did you see that?!" a lady asked. "Did the kid in the sheet do that?" another asked. A murmur ran through the crowd. They all took a group-step back. "Now we must obtain their complete attention," said Felix. "I think we've already got it," I said nervously. "The police will probably be here any minute to arrest me for causing a riot." "Not to worry. I already took care of ze police," said Felix. "Zey are in a deep sleep." "Great," I said, feeling anything but great. Next, without any warning, I found myself rising into the air – and without a rope this time. Then, the part of the sheet that covered my head magically twisted into a scary-looking mask. Later, I heard folks describe it as a cross between Frankenstein and Voldemort. "ARRRGGGHHHH!" I heard myself shriek. Although Felix wouldn't tell me his whole plan, he had said that this time, I would be the puppet for a change. Now that he was controlling my movements and my voice, I realized what he meant! It was like my body had booster rockets. I was propelled straight at the crowd, my arms outstretched and flapping like a huge bird of prey. Suddenly, Felix made me fly straight up, at least 30 feet in the air. Flailing my arms wildly, I tilted for a second, then nosedived at breakneck speed toward the crowd. "BEWARE! I HAVE COME TO SEEK REVENGE!" a deep voice from inside me growled. I could feel my mouth moving, but I knew it was really Felix speaking through me. A woman's high-pitched scream cut through the night air, and people took off, running in all directions. "PAY! PAY! SOMEONE MUST PAY! WEETH BLOOOOOOD!" I roared. Above the hysterical mob, I whipped one way, then another, like a puppet jerked around

on a string. "I AM ZE GHOST OF GEORGE ELDER. KEELED BY ZE POISON. BACK FROM ZE GRAVE. MY MURDERERS MUST PAY!" The crowd stampeded across the courthouse lawn like a herd of frightened cows. I zoomed overhead, with Felix's voice booming out of my mouth. "ZE CROOKED COWARDS KEELED ZE EDITOR, MEESTER ELDER – BECAUSE HE HAD TOO MUCH KNOWLEDGE." By that point, the crowd had scattered, and only one man was left standing on the courthouse lawn. Felix slowed me down and steered me in for a soft landing right in front of the man. It was Jake, red-faced and outof-breath. He had run out of the newspaper office when he'd heard all the fuss. I tore off the sheet. Jake rushed up to me. "Donnie, you don't work for me anymore, so... what the heck was that!?" "I took ze levitation to another level," Felix said, still speaking through me. "That's an understatement," said Jake. "How'd you? – " "Eet ees a scary magic trick, no?" the voice inside me said. "I'll tell you what's scary," he said. "Your saying my Uncle George was poisoned. Why would you make up something like that?" "Eet ees no fabrication. Eet ees ze truth." "Donnie, Uncle George had a heart attack," Jake said. "Au contraire," said Felix through me.

"Meester Elder was poisoned because he was about to publish an article exposing ze sheriff's scheme to rip on ze county." I corrected Felix, using my own voice. "Rip off the county." When Jake heard my voice correcting the French voice that had just come out of my mouth, he looked at me like I was nuttier than a pecan pie. Felix kept talking through me, not missing a beat. "Ze sheriff uses county money to pay deputies who died long ago, as if they were still alive. He then cashes their checks and puts the money in his own pocket. Eet ees a dirty, corrupt way of stealing from his employers – the citizens of Jefferson." "Wow, you're full of news tonight," Jake said. "You know, ze bad guys will think you were behind my leetle performance. They did keel your Uncle George. And guess what they will do now – now that they think you know about it." "I don't like where this is headed," Jake said. "They weel come after you, n'est pas?" Felix twisted my mouth into a scary, clownish grin. Jake took a step back from this weirdness. "That's not a good thing, Donnie." "Eet ees ze only way we can catch them in ze act." "In the act of what?" Jake asked. "In ze act of trying to keel you. You wanted to expose ze bad guys. Theese will be your big chance!" Like Felix said, now was Jake's chance. His chance to show his true colors. Was he serious about getting the bad guys or just stringing everyone along, so that he could sell lots of newspapers? We were about to find out soon.

Cleaning up Joplin After the tornado, the town of Joplin had to clean up so some of the materials were segregated into six different categories for proper disposal. A lot of the materials were recycled. The six categories were: • Vegetative waste such as limbs, branches and brush (400,000 yards) • Appliances such as refrigerators, washers, dryers and freezers (257 tons) • Electronic waste such as computers, printers, DVD players (156 tons) • Household Hazardous Waste which are chemicals like pesticides, herbicides, mercury, pool chemicals • Construction waste like windows, doors, furniture and carpet • Small motorized equipment like mowers, chainsaws and leaf blowers Hopefully, there will never be a natural disaster like this in our neighborhood.

Question: Will President Barack Obama make a campaign stop in Troy?

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Holland (Mich.) Sentinel on the presidential campaign: Americans won’t vote for president for almost five months, but we already seem to be in the thick of the presidential campaign. Attack ads denigrating Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are rolling out on television and the web, fueled by hundreds of millions of dollars in “super PAC” money unleashed by the 2010 Citizens United decision. … Most of these ads will generate far more heat than light. Many of them will have nothing to do with the important issues facing America, but will, implicitly or explicitly, question the candidates’ character, portraying them as out of the mainstream or somehow unAmerican. … We submit that neither Mitt Romney nor Barack Obama are extremists, and that both are well within the main currents of contemporary American political life. You may not like what they stand for, but both men sit in the middle of where their parties are today. … We reject any attempt to insinuate that Barack Obama or Mitt Romney are in any way “less American” than anyone else. They are not “the other;” each of them is As I one of us.

Under the program, participating colleges will provide students with more information about their financial aid options, odds of graduation, and estimate their monthly payments on borrowed money after graduation. All to the good, we believe. A better understanding of financial options can only help students make better decisions in their 20s that could follow them into their 30s and beyond. So, why wasn’t this done sooner? Until recently, college was seen as an unalloyed good bet, cost be damned. In the long run, the lifetime earning power of a four-year degree easily outpaced four years of indebtedness. So, the thinking went, go where you want to go, study want you want to study, and worry about the cost later. But education costs have spiraled upward with little regard to the increasing burden on young graduates … Further, college degrees are no longer much of a guarantee, especially in an economy that is not producing enough jobs, fewer still with good pay and benefits. So, while we approve of the effort to provide better transparency into the financing options and consequences of university offers to students, no one should be fooled that transparency goes to the heart of the problem. For students to get good value, their educations must be affordable and give them marketable skills for existing jobs.

America having trouble getting out of the ‘gates’ If you are around my age or older, June 17, 1972 should be a significant date. On that date 40 years ago, the break-in at the Democratic National Headquarters at the Watergate complex took place. The bungling burglars wouldn’t have accomplished much if they had succeeded, but by their failure they changed American government forever. It was the summer between my sophomore and junior years of high school. I have to admit at the time I was more concerned with what the girls thought of me, getting my driver’s license and working on my jump shot than I was with a national scandal. But when Virgilio González, Bernard Baker, James McCord, Eugenion Martinez and Frank Sturgis were caught and then were linked back to the White House, even a high school kid like me paid some attention – it still ranked pretty far behind the driver’s license, but at least it was on my radar. Looking back on it now, it seems incredible why people in the Nixon administration even thought tapping the Democratic office was necessary. The Democratic Party was in a bad state at the time and was headed toward almost total disorganization by Election Day. It

David Lindeman Troy Daily News Columnist was a gigantic landslide win for Richard Nixon. If ever a bigger disaster came from a totally useless idea, I’m not sure what it would be. The ensuing cover-up and scandal pretty much destroyed Americans’ faith in government, at least what was left of it after the Vietnam War. It also made a huge difference in journalism. A whole generation of newspaper, television and radio journalists dreamed of growing up to break their own Watergate scandal. Everyone wanted to be Woodward and Bernstein, the two Washington Post reporters who became famous for their role in breaking the scandal. Everyone wanted to have a Deep Throat source out there to tell them secrets. The result has been a seemingly endless string of scan-

dals, none of which have approached the cataclysmic levels of Watergate. Every time a little scandal pops up, it now has to be a “gate.” Irangate, Billygate, Whitewatergate, Monicagate, etc. In fact, I have a few “gates” you might not know about but that are the legacy of Watergate: • Fajitagate, involving San Francisco police officers beating up two people over a bag of steak fajitas. I assume they wouldn’t have bothered if they were chicken fajitas. • Iguanagate. This is a 2008 Australian scandal involving some Australian politicians and the staff at Iguana Joe’s Bar. The name is a lot better than the scandal. • Robogate. A Canadian scandal – I know, I can’t believe they have scandals in Canada, either – concerning robo calls and election fraud in the 2011 election. • Troopergate. These happen all the time. You have the Arkansas troopers setting up appointments for Gov. Bill Clinton with various women of questionable background; New York troopers changing records on orders from Gov. Elliott Spitzer, who ended up running into a bigger scandal all on his own; and the Alaskan troopers who said Sarah Palin fired the

state safety director for not doing her bidding. • Weinergate. U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner and Twitter and that’s all we really want to say about that. • Pardongate. Controversy that resulted from Bill Clinton’s lastminute pardon of 140 people before leaving office. Remember Patty Hearst? There has been a Tunagate, Wampumgate, Ratgate, Polarbeargate, Buscuitgate and just about every other kind of gate you can imagine. And all because Nixon and his cronies wanted to bug the Democrats for an upcoming election they couldn’t have lost if they tried. They not only damaged the reputation of the government, they also did some damage to the English language. So now here it is 40 years later, and no matter how hard we try we just can’t come up with a scandal as good as Watergate. I guess they just don’t make scandals like they used to — but there’s always hope. Somewhere out there, maybe the next Deep Throat is thinking about breaking open a “gate” that deserves the name.

Rodney King dies in L.A. LOS ANGELES (AP) — His beating stunned the nation, left Los Angeles smoldering and helped reshape race relations and police tactics. And in a quavering voice on national television, Rodney King pleaded for peace while the city burned. But peace never quite came for King not after the fires died down, after two of the officers who broke his skull multiple times were punished, after Los Angeles and its flawed police department moved forward. His life, which ended Sunday at age 47 after he was pulled from the bottom of his swimming pool, was a continual struggle even as the city he helped change moved on. The images preserved on an infamous grainy video of the black driver curled up on the ground while four white officers clubbed him over 50 times with batons became a national symbol of police brutality in 1991. More than a year later, when the officers’ acquittals touched off one of the most destructive race riots in history, his scarred face and softspoken question “Can we all get along?” spurred the nation to confront its difficult racial history. But while Los Angeles race relations and the city’s police department made strides forward, King kept coming before police and courts, struggling with alcohol addiction and arrests, periodically re-appearing publicly for a stint on “Celebrity Rehab” or a celebrity boxing match. He spent the last months of his life promoting a memoir he titled “The Riot Within: From Rebellion to Redemption.” King was declared dead at a hospital after his fiance called 911 at 5:25 a.m. to say she found him submerged in the pool at his home in Rialto, about an hour’s drive from Los Angeles. Officers found King in the deep end of the pool, pulled him out and tried unsuccessfully to revive him with CPR. An autopsy was expected to determine the cause of death within two days; police found no alcohol or drug paraphernalia near the pool and said foul play wasn’t suspected. King’s nextdoor neighbor said that around 3 a.m., she heard music and someone “really crying, like really deep emotions. … Like tired or sad, you know?” “I then heard someone say, ‘OK, Please stop. Go inside the house.’ … We heard quiet for a few minutes Then after that we heard a splash in the back.” King’s death was a grim ending to a saga that began 21 years earlier when he fled from police after he was stopped for speeding. The 25year-old, on parole from a robbery conviction, had been drinking, which he later said led him to try to evade police. He was finally stopped by four Los Angeles police officers who struck him more than 50 times with their batons, kicked him and shot him with stun guns. He was left with 11 skull fractures, a broken eye socket and facial nerve damage. A man who had quietly

stepped outside his home to observe the commotion videotaped most of it and turned a copy over to a TV station. It was played over and over for the following year, inflaming racial tensions across the country. It seemed that the videotape would be the key evidence to a guilty verdict against the officers, whose felony assault trial was moved to the predominantly white suburb of Simi Valley, Calif. Instead, on April 29, 1992, a jury with no black members acquitted three of the officers on state charges in the beating; a mistrial was declared for a fourth. Violence erupted immediately, starting in Los Angeles. They lasted for three days, killing 55 people, injuring more than 2,000 and setting swaths of Los Angeles aflame, causing $1 billion in damage. Police, seemingly caught off-guard, were quickly outnumbered by rioters and retreated. As the uprising spread to the city’s Koreatown area, shop owners armed themselves and engaged in running gun battles with looters. King who said in his memoir that FBI agents had urged him to keep a low profile if the officers were acquitted, expecting violence appeared at a news conference on the third day, asking for an end to the uprising. “Can we all get along?” he asked a question the city and nation have struggled to answer ever since. Although the four officers who beat King Stacey Koon, Theodore Briseno, Timothy Wind and Laurence Powell were acquitted of state charges, Koon and Powell were convicted of federal civil rights charges and were sentenced to more than two years in prison. King received a $3.8 million civil judgment; one of the jurors in the case, Cynthia Kelley, is his fiance. But he quickly lost the money as he invested in a record label and other failed ventures. He was arrested multiple times for drunken driving including last summer in Riverside, Calif. Despite his troubles, King remained upbeat as he confronted the 20-year anniversary of the LA riots and considered his legacy. “America’s been good to me after I paid the price and stayed alive through it all,” he told The Associated Press in an interview earlier this year. “This part of my life is the easy part now.” He had three daughters and was engaged to Kelley. He returned to the spotlight earlier this year as historians and news outlets explored the impact of the riots on its 20th anniversary, including the reforms made by the Los Angeles Police Department. “Through all that he had gone through with his beating and his personal demons he was never one to not call for reconciliation and for people to overcome and forgive,” Rev. Al Sharpton said Sunday. “History will record that it was Rodney King’s beating and his actions that made America deal with the excessive misconduct of law enforcement.”

Make more of an effort to reconcile

Today: 5 p.m.: Community Bulletin Board 7:30 p.m.: INN News 9 p.m.: Around Troy

Dear Annie: I've been married for 40 years and am now retired. While working, I became infatuated with "Lucy," a co-worker. We became friends, and after one of our many lunches, we took the rest of the day off, stayed at her house, and you can guess what happened. Annie, it was a tragic mistake that I wish I could take back. Unfortunately, what's done is done. My wife found out from a business associate, and she told me to leave. There was no discussion, no counseling, nothing. Let me tell you, the grass is not greener on the other side. Right now, my wife and I are separated, and I am living with Lucy, but I'm not happy. Lucy is not the person I thought she was. We don't like the same music, the same TV programs or even the same foods. She complains that I use her computer too much and don't cut the grass as neatly as her lawn service. She doesn't want me staying up past midnight because the TV keeps her up, so I go to bed earlier than I'd like. My wife never complained about any of these things. Lucy is also not as attractive as I once thought, especially when all that makeup comes off. I want to return home and see whether anything can be salvaged from my marriage. I took my wife to lunch the other day. She told me she's amazed to learn that she can actually make it on her own. She won't discuss divorce, which gives me some hope. My daughter says her mom might be willing to go to counseling, but my wife tells me that there's no way to regain the trust. Lucy thinks I took my wife to lunch to discuss divorce, not reconciliation. Is it too late for my wife and me to rebuild? — Grass Not Greener Dear Grass: Maybe not, although we have to say your reasons are rather superficial. Lucy isn't attractive enough? Your wife never complained about the TV? We hope there is more behind your regret than the disruption of your comfort levels. Please move out of Lucy's house before you attempt to reconcile. It will show commitment. Then ask your wife to go with you for counseling. If she refuses, tell her you will be going on your own to learn how to become worthy of her trust. Dear Annie: I am sick and tired of getting bad haircuts. I have found that stylists tend to cut hair the way they want to, not the way you want them to. I try my best to communicate with the stylist, and I even bring in pictures of hairstyles I like. I realize my hair texture is different and it won't be exactly the same. But I know my hair. So I would like to tell all of the hairstylists out there to please listen to your customers. If you don't believe a particular hairstyle will work, then discuss other options. Also, if you don't feel confident creating a certain style, please be honest and say so. But don't simply cut someone's hair the way you want instead of the way the customer wants it. — Tired of Getting Bad Haircuts Dear Tired: Most women have a regular stylist who becomes familiar with their hair. If you are not happy with your hairdresser, find another. Ask your friends for recommendations, or ask women in the mall and grocery for the names of their stylists. Pictures are good, but also be very specific about what you want, and spend time talking before any cutting begins. Don't give up. Dear Annie: The letter from "Sad Student" touched my heart. He said one of his teachers died and there was no mention of his teaching career in the death notice. When writing my parents' obituaries, I learned that the longer they are the more expensive it can get. Very possibly, the teacher's family could not afford a longer death notice. As you said, a letter to the editor by the student or a letter to the family would be a wonderful tribute and very much appreciated. — NY Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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


Don’t let hidden treasure idea end up in the trash Dear Heloise: Reading about others’ situations (about money hidden by older family members) reminded me of my mother placing quite a bit of cash in a plastic margarine container and placing it in her freezer (in case the banks failed). After my mother fell and broke her hip, there were ladies who stayed with her in her home. One of the ladies decided to throw away everything in the freezer, including the margarine container. — Sharon in Texas Oh no! I’m sure she just thought she was helping! Guess the lesson here for others helping out: Open it before throwing it out! Many older folks (and some younger, too) do hide money in

Hints from Heloise Columnist unusual places around the house! — Heloise COVER YOUR DUVET Dear Heloise: How does a person put a duvet into a duvet cover without a wrestling match or standing on the bed and shaking it in as you would a huge, heavy, unwieldy pillow? — Susan in Annville, Pa.

Susan, I’m sure many people have wrestled with this same problem! Here is a suggestion: Turn the duvet cover inside out. Lay the duvet on a flat surface and match one side of corners with the cover. If you have a problem with the duvet bunching up in the duvet cover, you can safety-pin the corners if you want. Have a helper reach in and hold the corners while you slowly turn the duvet cover right side out around the duvet. It’s just like putting a pillowcase on an oversized pillow. Hope this makes the job a little easier. — Heloise CARD CADDIE Dear Heloise: I use a small photo-album book for business

cards. I get two cards to each side of the page. When I need them, I just go through the pages, and there they are, in clear view. I also keep one in the kitchen for recipes. The index cards fit each page perfectly. — Martha in California CLEAN SHEET Dear Heloise: My office came up with a hint to help save paper. Instead of using a new cover sheet every time we fax, we made a basic one and laminated it. There are a few dry-erase markers by the fax machine for filling in the recipient information. When done, all you have to do is wipe it clean, and it is ready for the next person. — Joyce in Colorado











HOROSCOPE Monday, June 18, 2012 The signs for the year ahead look exceptionally good. It’s highly likely that you’ll have an unusually large number of opportunities to partake in many of the fun things that life will be offering. Prepare for the unexpected, and the unexpectedly pleasurable. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — When in a position of authority, you should be extremely careful not to abuse the powers of office. If you do, things will work against you, and you won’t get the support you need from others. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Resurrecting an issue that angered you in the past regarding a person who’s involved in your immediate plans could cause you unnecessary problems. Let sleeping dogs lie. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Most financial affairs tend to be rather uncertain right now, so if you have anything in this area going on, it might be best not to involve any of your friends. You’ll be blamed if they end up in the red. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Because you always want things to be perfect, sometimes you’re inclined to do things the hard way instead of taking the more efficient way out. This might be one of those days. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Regardless of your good intentions, it’s best to stay out of affairs that don’t concern you. Instead of providing help, you could muddy the waters further. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It isn’t such a good idea to get someone you know socially to intervene on your behalf in a business matter. It could cause trouble for him or her, and cause awkwardness for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Make certain that you’re diplomatic and fair in handling those you have some authority over. If you single out one person to blame and ignore the others, there will be trouble. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Be organized in the ways you intend to fulfill your ambitions. Don’t give up a known value in hopes of getting something of uncertain or mysterious worth. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Suppress any of your possessive tendencies for the time being. If you discover you’ve behaved badly, the fuss you make to correct matters likely won’t soothe the feelings of the people you hurt. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Before extending to a friend an impromptu invitation to come to your place, check with the family first to make sure they haven’t made conflicting plans. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — In order to perform at your best, handle things one step at a time. Trying to rush a job is likely to greatly reduce your efficiency and slow you down in the long run. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Don’t allow a contest to form between your prudent judgment and your extravagant impulses. If you feel pulled in those two directions, compromise must be the watchword.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Monday, June 18, the 170th day of 2012. There are 196 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 18, 1812, the War of 1812 began as the United States Congress approved, and President James Madison signed, a declaration of war against Britain. On this date: • In 1778, American forces entered Philadelphia as the British withdrew during the Revolutionary War. • In 1815, Napoleon Bonaparte met his Waterloo as

British and Prussian troops defeated the French in Belgium. • In 1873, suffragist Susan B. Anthony was found guilty by a judge in Canandaigua N.Y., of breaking the law by casting a vote in the 1872 presidential election. (The judge fined Anthony $100, but she never paid the penalty.) In 1940, during World War II, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill urged his countrymen to conduct themselves in a manner that would prompt future generations to say, “This was their finest hour.”

• In 1979, President Jimmy Carter and Soviet President Leonid I. Brezhnev signed the SALT II strategic arms limitation treaty in Vienna. • In 1983, astronaut Sally K. Ride became America’s first woman in space as she and four colleagues blasted off aboard the space shuttle Challenger. • Today’s Birthdays: Rock singer-composer-musician Sir Paul McCartney is 70. Movie critic Roger Ebert is 70. Actress Isabella Rossellini is 60. Country singer Blake Shelton is 36.

21 killed in attacks on churches in Nigeria KADUNA, Nigeria (AP) — Suicide bombers killed 21 people in attacks on three churches in Nigeria during Sunday services, exacerbating religious tensions in a West African nation that is almost evenly divided between Muslims and Christians. Authorities arrested one of the bombers who survived, said Kaduna State police chief Mohammed Abubakar Jinjiri, but he declined to say who police suspect was responsible for the bombings. It was the third Sunday in a row that deadly attacks have been carried out against Christian churches in northern Nigeria. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the latest one, but suspicion fell on the radical Islamist sect Boko Haram because it took responsibility for the two earlier weekend assaults. Boko Haram is waging an increasingly bloody fight with security agencies and the public in Nigeria. More than 560 people have been killed in violence blamed on the sect this year alone, according to an Associated Press count. On Sunday, the suicide bombers drove explosive-laden cars to the gates of two churches in different parts of the city of Zaria and detonated them within minutes of each other. A similar attack targeted a church in the city of Kaduna about half an hour later at about 9:25 a.m., police


People gather outside a church following a blast in Kaduna, Nigeria, Sunday. said, prompting reprisals by Christian youths. The attacks in the northern state of Kaduna killed a total of 21 people and wounded at least 100, said an official who works with a relief agency involved in rescue efforts. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak to journalists. It wasn’t immediately known if the reprisal attacks caused casualties in the religious flashpoint state, but hundreds of people have died in previous retaliatory violence there. “The Boko Haram group’s intention in bombing the churches is to attract reprisal attacks from the Christians, draw the battle line between Muslim and

Christians and, (by doing so) get moderate Muslims to support them,” said Shehu Sani, the president of the Kaduna-based Civil Rights Congress of Nigeria. In Italy, the Vatican decried what it called systematic attacks against Christian churches in Nigeria. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said in a statement that the “systematicness” of the attacks against Christian places of worship on a Sunday is “horrible and inacceptable” and reflects “an absurd design of hatred.” Within an hour of the Kaduna city attack on Shalom Church, an Associated Press reporter saw billows of smoke over a mosque in a predominantly Christian part of the city. Some Christian

youths quickly mounted illegal roadblocks and were seen harassing motorists. A motorcycle taxi rider in that same neighborhood lay seriously hurt and bleeding by the road side. Motorcycle taxi riders there are often presumed to be Muslim and become easy targets during reprisal attacks by Christians. “The Christians can’t see Boko Haram,” said Sani, “so they’ll retaliate against Muslims.” Churches have been increasingly targeted by violence in Nigeria, with Boko Haram claiming some of the attacks. The situation has led churches in Nigeria’s predominantly Muslim north to boost their security in a nation of more than 160 million people. Last weekend, a suicide car bomber detonated his explosives outside a church in the central Nigerian city of Jos as gunmen attacked another church in the northeastern city of Biu, killing at least six people and wounding dozens. Boko Haram claimed responsibility for the two attacks. The weekend before that, at least 15 people were killed and dozens more wounded after a suicide car bomber drove into Living Faith Church’s compound in the northern Nigeria city of Bauchi and detonated his explosives as worshippers left an early morning service.

Earlier, an Easter Day blast in Kaduna left at least 38 people dead, and Christmas Day suicide bombing of a Catholic church in Madalla near Nigeria’s capital killed at least 44. For now, Christian leaders in the north are encouraging Christians to keep attending Sunday services. “They can only destroy the flesh,” said Sunday Aibe, a spokesman for the Northern Christian Association, “and not the spirit.” But many feel that going to church puts them at risk. Timothy Musa, an unemployed 25 year old, says he won’t go to church unless he sees the security improve. “Unemployment in the country is still on the rise and now there is the insecurity of lives and property. How can I?” said the member of Christ the King Catholic Church, one of the three targeted by Sunday’s attacks. These latest attacks have occurred in the place where they are the most likely to have a ripple effect. “Targeting religious places of worship is always an inflaming situation in a divided society such as we have here,” said criminologist Innocent Chukwuma. Kaduna state, which sits on Nigeria’s dividing line between its largely Christian south and Muslim north, has a history of religious tensions.

Greek conservatives win, head into coalition talks ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Fears of an imminent Greek exit from Europe’s joint currency receded Sunday after the conservative New Democracy party came first in a critical election and pro-bailout parties won enough seats to form a joint government. As central banks stood ready to intervene in case of financial turmoil, Greece held its second national election in six weeks after an inconclusive ballot on May 6 and the subsequent collapse of coalition talks. With one party advocating ripping up Greece’s multibillion-euro bailout

deal, Sunday’s election was seen as a vote on whether Greece should stay in the 17-nation group sharing the euro currency. A Greek exit would have had potentially catastrophic consequences for other ailing European nations, the United States and the entire global economy. Asian stock markets climbed early Monday on the news. Near complete results showed New Democracy coming first with 29.6 percent of the vote and 129 of the 300 seats in Parliament. The radical left anti-bailout Syriza party had 26.9 per-

cent and 71 seats and the pro-bailout Socialist PASOK party came in third with 12.3 percent of the vote and 33 seats. The extremist far-right Golden Dawn party had steady support, getting 6.9 percent of the vote and 18 seats. Sunday’s results “will probably ease fears of an imminent Greek euro exit,” said Martin Koehring of the Economist Intelligence Unit. “There will probably be a relief rally tomorrow in the financial markets. But the key question is how quickly can a government be formed?” Stock analysts, however,

warned that any bounce for financial markets could be short-lived. “Treat knee-jerk market rallies with caution,” Neil MacKinnon, a global macro strategist at VTB Capital, advised clients, saying there was still too many questions about Europe’s debt crisis to celebrate the Greek vote. The United States welcomed the result. “We hope this election will lead quickly to the formation of a new government that can make timely progress on the economic challenges facing the Greek people,” the White House said in a

statement. Greece’s parties have starkly different views about what to do about the 240 billion ($300 billion) in bailout loans that Greece has been given by other European countries and the International Monetary Fund, and the harsh austerity measures that previous Greek governments had to accept in return for the loans. With none winning an outright majority, the parties will have to seek coalition partners to form a viable government, needing a simple majority of at least 151 seats.

New Democracy will get the first stab at brokering a partnership on Monday. Negotiations could be tough. PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos, who spent months negotiating bailouts as Greece’s finance minister, has suggested dumping the usual procedure of each party seeking coalition partners. He said a government must be formed quickly and suggested a four-party coalition between New Democracy, Syriza, PASOK and the small Democratic Left, which was in sixth place with 6.3 percent of the vote and 17 seats.

Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks.

Heat takes 2-1 lead on Thunder in finals The Oklahoma City Thunder had their chance.They were up 10 in the third quarter of the NBA Finals and then it all slipped away. By the end of the period, their lead was gone. And even a late flurry wasn’t enough to save the Thunder, as the Heat escaped with a 91-85 victory Sunday night to take a 2-1 lead in the championship series. See Page 16.

Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto delivers in the first inning against the New York Mets during their baseball game Sunday at Citi Field in New York.

Johnny on the spot Defense helps Cueto pick up 3-1 win NEW YORK (AP) — Brandon Phillips loves to fool around in the field during batting practice, trying all sorts of “crazy” stuff with his glove. It’s fun and besides, someday it might come in handy. As in the sixth inning Sunday. The star second baseman made a between-the-legs flip to start a flashy double play and also hit a tiebreaking single, leading Johnny Cueto and the Cincinnati Reds over the New York Mets 3-1 for their sixth straight win. “It just happened,” the threetime Gold Glove winner said. “It just came naturally.” Naturally, said Reds manager Dusty Baker. “Anything you see him do out there, he’s practiced,” Baker said. “Bare hand, behind-the-

back.” The NL Central leaders completed their first three-game sweep in New York since 2001 and matched their longest winning streak of the season. The Reds also finished 6-2 this year in visits to Citi Field and Yankee Stadium. Cueto (8-3) overcame an early bout of dizziness and struck out a season-high eight in seven innings. He also doubled for the first extra-base hit of his career. The only run against Cueto came when he issued a basesloaded walk to pitcher Chris Young at 6-foot-10, the Mets starter has a strike zone as large as anyone in the majors. Sean Marshall got four outs for his ninth save in 10 chances. It was 3-1 in the sixth when Lucas Duda led off with a single

BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — Dale Earnhardt Jr. raced to his first NASCAR Sprint Cup victory in four years, ending a 143race winless streak Sunday at Michigan International Speedway. The victory came almost exactly four years to the day after his last trip to Victory Lane in a Cup race. That also was in Michigan on June 15, 2008. He led for 36 laps last weekend at Pocono but made a late stop for gas instead of trying to stretch the fuel to the end.

Pirates blow past Indians

and Ike Davis followed with a hard grounder up the middle that Phillips backhanded. While in full stride, the All-Star tossed the ball with his bare hand between his legs to shortstop Zack Cozart, who made the DP relay. Phillips broke into a big smile after his latest highlightreel play. “I’d probably give it an 8,” Phillips said. Phillips’ single capped a three-run rally in the fifth, helped by Duda’s wild throw from right. There was plenty of wildlife on the field, too a squirrel scampered into the Reds’ dugout in the ninth, and several pigeons spent part of the game wandering around the infield dirt. Phillips noted that the birds

CLEVELAND (AP) — Asdrubal Cabrera’s defense has been something the Indians could count on. That’s why it was so surprising when he committed a careerhigh three errors two on one play that led to four unearned runs in Cleveland’s 9-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday. The Indians lost for the fifth time in six games. Pittsburgh scored three runs in the fourth following Cabrera’s first error and five of the six runs in the fifth came after Cabrera’s double error. “It was a bad day for me,”

Simpson wins 1st U.S. Open crown SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Webb Simpson won the U.S. Open and put two more names into the graveyard of champions. Overlooked for so much of the week, Simpson emerged on a fogfilled Sunday at The Olympic Club with four birdies around the turn and a tough chip out of a hole to the right of the 18th green that he converted into par for a 2-under 68. He finished at 1-over 281, and it was enough to outlast former U.S. Open champions Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell. Furyk bogeyed two of his last three holes. McDowell had a 25foot birdie on the 18th to force a playoff, but it never had a chance. “Oh, wow,” Simpson said,

watching from the locker room. Olympic is known as the “graveyard of champions” because proven major winners who were poised to win the U.S. Open have always lost to the underdog. One of those was Arnold Palmer in 1966, when he lost a sevenshot lead on the back nine. Perhaps it was only SIMPSON fitting that the 25year-old Simpson went to Wake Forest on an Arnold Palmer scholarship. “Arnold has been so good to me,” Simpson said. “Just the other day, I read that story and thought about it. He’s meant so

much to me and Wake Forest. Hopefully, I can get a little back for him and make him smile.” No one was beaming like Simpson, who followed a breakthrough year on the PGA Tour with his first major. No one was more disgusted than Furyk, in control of the U.S. Open for so much of the final round until he snap-hooked his tee shot on the par-5 16th hole to fall out of the lead for the first time all day, and was unable to get it back. Needing a birdie on the final hole, he hit into the bunker. He crouched and clamped his teeth onto the shaft of his wedge.

Furyk made bogey on the final hole and closed with a 74, a final round without a single birdie. McDowell, who made four bogeys on the front nine, at least gave himself a chance with a 20foot birdie putt on the 17th and a shot into the 18th that had him sprinting up the hill to see what kind of chance he had. The putt stayed left of the hole the entire way, and he had to settle for a 73. McDowell shared second place with Michael Thompson, who closed with a 67 and waited two hours to see if it would be good enough. Tiger Woods, starting five shots behind, played the first six holes in 6-over par and was never a factor. He shot 73.

Tomlinson ends career after 11 years in NFL SAN DIEGO (AP) — LaDainian Tomlinson’s brilliant NFL career will officially end when he ceremoniously rejoins the San Diego Chargers for a day. The Chargers said Sunday that Tomlinson, who was the NFL MVP in 2006 with San Diego and is the fifth-leading rusher in league history, will re-sign with the team on Monday and then announce his retirement. Tomlinson was drafted in the first round by San Diego in 2001 and became one of the biggest stars in team history, helping

revive the Chargers after the devastating Ryan Leaf years and turning them into a force in the AFC West. He spent the first nine years of his career in San Diego. He played the last two seasons with the New York Jets. Tomlinson won the MVP in ‘06, when he set NFL single-season records with 31 touchdowns, including 28 rushing, and 186 points. He ran for a career-high 1,815 yards that year, giving him the first of two straight league rushing titles. Tomlinson finishes his

career with 13,684 yards noon to break Shaun Alexander’s year-old and 145 touchdowns. Tomlinson spoke at the record of 28 touchdowns. His linemen public memorial hoisted him onto service for Junior their shoulders Seau on May 11, and carried him drawing the toward the sidebiggest cheers of line, with the night.

2010, quarterback Philip Rivers said: “I had the best view in the house on some of those awesome runs he made.” Tomlinson had said recently that he might continue his career if the right opportunity was available. Some fans hoped the Chargers would bring back Tomlinson as a third-down back, but that appeared impossible as long as general manager A.J. Smith was in control. Tomlinson had a lessthan-smooth separation from the Chargers. The slashing, dazzling runs

came less frequently and Tomlinson was slowing down because of injuries and age. He became less and less the face of the franchise as his role was reduced in a pass-happy offense. The Chargers would have been on the hook for a $2 million roster bonus, along with a $5 million salary. Days after his release from the Chargers, Tomlinson held a tearful news conference at the suburban country club where he and his wife lived. L.T. also had a public

NASCAR ■ CONTINUED FROM 14 On Sunday, it wasn’t even close. He pulled away over the final 25 laps of the 400-mile race, and his black Chevrolet with the green No. 88 finally crossed the finish line 5.393 seconds ahead of Tony Stewart. “Those last 15 laps were the longest laps ever,” Earnhardt said. Earnhardt already had 11 top-10 finishes this season and was second in the points standings entering this race. But after another close run at Pocono, the questions kept coming about his dry spell. That’s now over. “Dale had the fastest car all day,” Stewart said. “It’s not a national holiday, guys. This morning they were celebrating his fourth anniversary of his last win, so I guess we’re all in a state of mourning now, because he’s broke that string now, so I don’t know what we’re all supposed to think.” Earnhardt remains second to Matt Kenseth in the standings. Earnhardt’s 143 races between wins was the sixth-longest streak in Sprint Cup history. Like his last victory in Michigan, this one came on Father’s Day fitting for the driver whose father has been so revered around NASCAR circles. Dale Earnhardt Sr. died in a last-lap crash at the Daytona 500 in 2001. “Junior” is now stock-car racing’s most popular driver a fact not lost on him in the moments after the win. “To do it for my fans they stuck behind me for all these years. I know exactly what they’ve been thinking about and how long they’ve been wanting us to get to Victory Lane,” Earnhardt said. “This was for them. I appreciate their loyalty and their support. We wouldn’t have made it back to Victory Lane without it.” Earnhardt moved past pole winner Marcos Ambrose on lap 70 to take the lead, and although Stewart would lead for a bit, Earnhardt was in front again not long after the race’s halfway point.

MIAMI (AP) — The Oklahoma City Thunder had their chance. They were up 10 in the third quarter of the NBA Finals and then it all slipped away. By the end of the period, their lead was gone. And even a late flurry wasn’t enough to save the Thunder, as the Heat escaped with a 91-85 victory Sunday night to take a 2-1 lead in the championship series. Game 4 is Tuesday

Post 43 rained out

FSU ends Stony Brook run

Staff Reports Having given up a tournament-low eight runs in four games and continuing to hit the ball solid over the weekend, Troy Post 43 coach Frosty Brown thought his team played well enough to win the Hillsboro Wooden Bat Tournament.

HILLSBORO But Mother Nature was not on Post 43’s side. Facing a must win scenario on Sunday to advance to the title game, Post 43’s game against Worthington was rained out — which gave both teams a victory, but sent Worthington into the title game. Post 43 finished off the tournament at 4-1. The Troy Bombers placed second in their division.

Heat takes lead Thunder miss chances in Game 3 loss

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Florida State capitalized on a throwing error to score six runs in the third inning, and the Seminoles ended Stony Brook’s surprise appearance in the College World Series with a 12-2 victory on Sunday. Justin Gonzalez and Devon Travis homered to help the Seminoles build an early 9-0 lead against the CWS first-timers from Long Island. FSU (49-16) rebounded from a 4-3, 12-inning loss to Arizona on Friday and scored at least 12 runs for the third time in four games. Stony Brook (52-15) stunned the college baseball world by upsetting six-time national champion LSU in a three-game super regional to reach the CWS. But the Seawolves were beaten

night in Miami. There was so much for the Thunder to lament when this one was over. Kevin Durant was in foul trouble, again and with him on the bench with four fouls late in the third quarter, Miami started making its comeback push. The Thunder were 15 for 24 from the foul line, gave Miami eight points off turnovers in the fourth quarter and were outrebounded 4538.

But more than anything else, the Thunder will spend the next two days dealing with the fact that they had a chance to grab home-court back from Miami, which is now two wins away from the championship that LeBron James has spent nine seasons chasing. The Heat led last year’s title series 2-1 as well, then failed to win another game. That was a different team, a different time.


Florida State starting pitcher Mike Compton delivers against Stony Brook in the first inning of an NCAA College World Series elimination baseball game Sunday in Omaha, Neb. 9-1 by UCLA on Friday and outscored 21-3 in their two games in Omaha. FSU starter Mike Compton (12-2) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings. Brandon McNitt (8-4) went 3 2-3 innings and gave up nine runs, four earned. Stony Brook, a Division I baseball program for only

12 years, came to town much celebrated for its “Shock The World” mantra after its upset of LSU on the road. The Seawolves were the first team from the Northeast to play at the CWS since Maine in 1986, and they brought with them huge offensive numbers.

■ CONTINUED FROM 14 Cabrera said. “We lost the game right there on the errors I made.” It didn’t help that Pedro Alvarez hit a threerun homer in both innings following the miscues. “That made me feel bad, too, but there’s nothing I can do,” Cabrera said. “It (the errors) already happened. You have to finish the game.” Cabrera had three errors in 279 total chances going into the game. He hadn’t committed an error since May 7, a stretch of 33 consecutive games. “You want him to make every play, but that’s

impossible,” said manager Manny Acta. “You have to realize he’s won a lot of games for us with his glove. He’s human.” “You’re not going to see that team make three errors in a game very often,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “We made them pay.” Cabrera’s two-out throwing error in the fourth on Casey McGehee’s grounder was followed by Alvarez’s three-run homer that gave the Pirates a 3-2 lead against starter Jeanmar Gomez. Cabrera fielded the ball near second base and his throw to first baseman Casey Kotchman was wide.

Reds ■ CONTINUED FROM 14 stayed on the left side of the infield, closer to third baseman Miguel Cairo. “He had the pumpkin seeds,” Phillips said. As for the squirrel, “I don’t like them. I don’t like things that can’t talk.” Young (1-1) gave up two earned runs in seven innings. His four-game winning streak, which began in 2010 and was prolonged by a series of injuries, came to an end. The Mets lost their sixth straight game on Father’s Day. Davis, whose dad, Ron, was a longtime pitcher in the majors, scored New York’s only run when Young walked with two outs in second. Cincinnati outscored the Mets 14-5, right after New York outscored pitching-rich Tampa Bay 29-9 while sweeping a threegame series. “We got outpitched, we got outhit,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. “They did exactly what we’ve been doing, and that is they get the top of the order up with that outstanding middle of the lineup they have to come in and drive in runs.”

Cueto had been 0-3 lifetime against the Mets and had consistently been hit hard by them. He allowed six hits and walked one. Cueto had gone 216 atbats at the plate with only singles until he crept up in the batter’s box and led off with an opposite-field drive that bounced over the right-field wall in the third. He was left stranded and then in the bottom of the inning, he threw one pitch and needed a break. Baker and a trainer went to Cueto and eventually a cup was brought to give the right-hander a drink. Cueto also got some medication for his stomach. After his double “my eyes were blurry,” he said through a translator. “I was dizzy. I felt like I wanted to drop.” Cozart doubled with two outs in the fifth and scored the tying run on a single by Wilson Valdez. Joey Votto was intentionally walked and Phillips hit an RBI single, with another run scoring when Duda’s throw to third bounced into the stands for an error.
