Gasoline prices begin summer slide National average below $3.50 for the first time since February NEW YORK (AP) — Gasoline prices are on a summer slide, giving U.S. drivers a break as they set out for the beach and other vacation spots for the Fourth of July. The national average for a gallon has fallen for 21 days straight and is now below $3.50 for the first time since February. The reason: Oil prices have been relatively stable, and refineries are turning out more gasoline after complet-

ing springtime maintenance. The drop may be interrupted temporarily because oil prices spiked Wednesday on fears that the turmoil in Egypt would disrupt the flow of crude in the Mideast. Analysts, however, don’t expect a sharp increase at the pump, because global oil supplies are ample and U.S. refineries are producing plenty of gas.

The national average price of a gallon is $3.48, according to AAA, OPIS and Wright Express. That is 16 cents below its post-Memorial Day high of $3.64 on June 10. For much of the nation, the slide has been gradual. But for some drivers, especially in the Midwest, it has been a rollercoaster ride. Prices shot up there early last month because of refinery maintenance work and a fire, then plunged after the refineries ramped back up. Patrick Francis, who owns a used-car lot in Toledo, Ohio, filled up his Volvo for $2.89 per gallon over the weekend as he

was preparing for a family trip to Hilton Head, N.C. Just three weeks earlier, he was paying more than $4. “I feel blessed,” he said. “It’s like a miracle.” Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at, predicted the national average will hover between $3.30 and $3.60 for the rest of the summer. That would be somewhat lower than the last two summers, when gasoline prices spent part of the season above $3.70 per gallon. Oil prices shot up Wednesday above

Egyptian army ousts Morsi


The armed forces ousted Egypt’s first democratically elected president Wednesday after just a year in power, installing a temporary civilian government, suspending the constitution and calling for new elections. Islamist President Mohammed Morsi denounced it as a “full coup” by the military. See Page 5.

Boston beefs up security For many New Englanders, the Fourth of July means the Boston Pops performing the “1812 Overture” on the Charles River Esplanade and fireworks booming overhead. This year, it’s also the city’s first large public gathering since the Boston Marathon bombings an attack that authorities have said the suspects first considered staging on Independence Day.

WACO Air Museum Executive Director Gretchen Hawk holds an aluminum cup at Historic WACO Field Tuesday to promote Discover Troy’s Treasures event. Participants of the project will receive the aluminum water bottle after visiting the seven Troy treasure locations and then will be registered for a grand prize.

Troy treasure awaits Historical alliance event to showcase city’s ‘rich history’ BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer A pot of silver waits at the end of a treasure hunt with a twist, as members of the Troy Historical Alliance invite people of all ages to take part in its first “Discover Troy Treasures” beginning now through Oct. 18. “I wanted to come up with something fun and new to bring people to all the Historical Alliance members sites, so we came up with a fun treasure hunt and map to draw people to each of the seven sites,” said Gretchen Hawk, WACO Air Museum executive director. After participants get all seven stamps on the treasure map, it can be turned at the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center for a ‘Discover Troy Treasures’ water bottle. Treasure hunt maps are available

at all locations. Six out of seven Troy Historical Alliance sites are free to the public, with the exception of WACO Air Museum’s $6 for adults, $3 for students $5 for military personnel and children 7 and up are free. All hours vary from location to location. For a list of all seven sites and their hours, visit Hawk said the goal of the Discover Troy Treasure hunt is for treasure hunters to tour seven of Troy’s historical sites and discover artifacts and stories from Troy’s rich history. “So many people in town don’t know how much rich history we have here in our own backyard,” Hawk said. “We want people to get

remains high, consumer confidence has improved and the housing market is making a solid comeback. Yet, while economic conditions change, much remains the same. On Friday, the government will release its monthly jobs report, and economists predict that U.S. employers added 165,000 jobs in June. That’s fewer than in May and far short of the number of new jobs needed to push the

unemployment rate down significantly from its current perch at 7.6 percent. Unemployment has dropped from a high of 10 percent in October 2009. It also is the last consequence of a recession to show improvement in a recovery. But the jobless rate has remained at or above 7.5 percent for 53 months, a period that has left an unusually large number of people out of the work force for so long that some of

them will likely never work again. Nearly 12 million people are searching for work and millions more are underemployed in involuntary part-time jobs. The rate will take time to bring down, adding pressure on the economy and creating political problems for Obama and his Democratic allies in Congress. Moreover, experts say the rate could

The city of Troy has decided not to pursue quiet zones at this time after preparing a report of the upgrades and costs required to replace the need for sounding horns. Under federal guidelines, communities must upgrade crossings to compensate for the silencing of the train horns. Springfield became the first city to implement a quiet zone in 2009. A report prepared by Troy City Engineer Debbie Swan was given to councilman Al Clark, who requested that the city look into the issue at a council meeting in May. Clark said he had heard complaints from residents about hearing horns in the middle of the night. Titterington said the city updated a report from a few years ago. “We provided him with the report, and the costs are estimated at $1.9 million,” Titterington said. “We do not anticipate doing anything further with it at this time.” Troy has 10 crossings, with the nine public public crossings having warning lights and the private crossing, located at Dakota Street, not having warning lights or crossing arms/gates. Public tracks include North Market, Staunton, East Water, East Main, East Canal, East West, Union, Dye Mill and East Franklin, which does not have crossing arms/gates. In order to ensure safety, gates would need to be added to East Franklin Street, as it is a public crossing, and upgrades would need to be made at the private crossing as well, with costs totalling $450,000. In addition, the city would need to hire a consultant at a cost of about $15,000. Costs also include more than $1.3 million in supplementary safety measures at each crossing and roughly $106, 920 for detailed designs of railroad crossings. Titterington said the city studied the costs and benefits of the project and noted it is not feasible at this time given the city’s other priorities. He added that he has not heard any direct complaints from residents. The city has not found any grants that would offset the design or construction costs.

NATO supplier’s compound attacked

• The Troy Elevator

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A suicide truck bomber followed by heavily armed men stormed a NATO supplier’s compound Tuesday in Kabul, prompting a gunbattle that left a dozen people dead in the latest Taliban attack on a high-profile target in the Afghan capital. The bold strikes have signaled the Islamic militant movement has no plans to suspend its campaign of violence even though they have agreed to embark on a U.S.led peace process. The violence began before dawn when the bomber drove a small truck packed with explosives to the outer gate of the logistics center used to supply NATO troops and detonated it, said Kabul provincial police chief Mohammad Ayoub Salangi. The explosion left a huge crater in the ground and damaged a guard tower. Two truck drivers waiting to enter the compound were killed in the blast along with the bomber, he said. Then four gunmen stormed into the breach and battled with security guards and an Afghan police special response team for about an hour. The attackers were all killed, along with one Afghan and four Nepalese security guards, the Interior Ministry said in a statement. The British government confirmed that a U.K. national had been killed in the attack, but it could not say whether the victim was one of the truck drivers or a security guard or contractor. The Taliban opened a political office in the Qatari capital of Doha last month, indicating they were prepared to enter into Afghan peace talks, an effort that has taken on added urgency as the U.S. and its allies prepare to withdraw combat forces by the end of next year. But the movement did not renounce violence. “This (attack) has no link to the peace process,” Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid told The Associated Press in a telephone call, promising that attacks “will continue all over the country occupied by the foreigners.” Mujahid also said only three militants were involved in the

Auto sales maintain momentum, led by pickup trucks DETROIT (AP) — Three years ago U.S. car buyers started trickling back into showrooms after largely sitting out the recession. That trickle has turned into a flood. From owners of revitalized small businesses that need to replace aging pickups to new hires who need a fresh set of wheels for the daily commute, increasingly confident buyers pushed auto sales back to prerecession levels in the first six months of this year. Sales in the January-June period topped 7.8 million, their best first half since 2007, according to Autodata Corp. and Ward’s AutoInfoBank. Automakers also reported that June rose 9 percent to 1.4 million. The outlook for the rest of 2013 is just as strong. The factors boosting sales low interest rates, wider credit availability, rising home construction and hot new vehicles will be around for a while, and experts are hard-pressed for answers when asked what could slow things down. EU to start trade talks with US despite scandal BRUSSELS (AP) The European Union confirmed Tuesday that free-trade negotiations with the United States should kick off as planned next week, despite widespread concerns over the alleged eavesdropping of EU diplomats. The Commission, the EU’s executive branch that leads the negotiations on behalf of its 28 members, said the planned start of talks in Washington next Monday “should not be affected” by the surveillance scandal that has emerged in recent days. However, it insisted that the trans-Atlantic atmosphere needed to clear up for the talks to be successful. — Staff and wire reports


Afghan security forces officers, with NATO compound workers, investigate the gate to a NATO compound following a suicide car bombing in Kabul, Afghanistan, Tuesday. “attack on a big foreign base important for NATO logistics,” listing the assailants by name, according to a statement on the Taliban website. The Taliban have persisted with their campaign of violence since opening the Doha office on June 18. The next week, suicide attackers got past preliminary security checks and opened fire on guards at a gate to the presidential palace in the heart of Kabul. Heavily armed fighters also launched a failed assault on NATO’s operational headquarters at Kabul’s international airport and detonated a car bomb outside Afghanistan’s Supreme Court earlier that month. The U.N. deputy chief, Jan Eliasson, who was in Kabul wrapping up a five-day trip to Afghanistan when Tuesday’s attack hit, said continued violence could only harm the Taliban’s own cause. “I would hope that there would be steps taken by the leadership of

the Taliban to realize that the tool of violence in any case cannot instill confidence in the population,” he said. “There’s been too much suffering there, and there are too many widows, too many father-and-motherless children in Afghanistan.” The Taliban have refused to negotiate with President Hamid Karzai’s government in the past, saying the U.S. holds effective control in Afghanistan, but the Americans are hoping to bring the two sides together. The possibility of peace talks got off to a rocky start, however, after the Taliban opened the Doha office under the name “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan” and the flag it used while ruling Afghanistan. Karzai and other Afghans reacted sharply to the move, saying that agreements had been violated and that the office was more akin to a rival embassy than a bureau for peace negotiations. The Taliban have since been forced to remove the offending flag


Economy • CONTINUED FROM 1 plateau at a higher level than the 4.7 percent unemployment in place before the recession hit in 2008. The Federal Reserve last month issued an optimistic forecast that the jobless rate would drop to between 6.5 and 6.8 percent by the fourth quarter of next year. But the Fed has been overly optimistic before; in 2009 it projected unemployment would hit between 6.7 and 7.5 at the end of 2011. Instead, it remained at 9 percent for most of the year before dropping to 8.5 percent. It has also had to revise other subsequent projections upward. Likewise, some forecasts have been too pessimistic. The non-partisan Congressional budget Office projected in February of 2012 that unemployment would remain above 8 percent until 2014. “I think the forecast that makes most sense to me right now is the unemployment rate ticking down very slowly, something like a tenth of a percent every few months for the next year or so,” said Jared Bernstein, a senior fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and former economic adviser to Vice

President Joe Biden. Jack Kleinhenz, chief economist at the National Retail Federation, said he finds it hard to imagine unemployment getting as low as the Fed predicts because incomes are not growing, thus constraining consumer spending. Bernstein believes the Obama administration and Congress should embrace a policy of full employment, which means anyone who wants to work should be able to find a job and that the government should step in if the private sector can meet the demand. That doesn’t mean zero unemployment. Even a humming economy has a level of joblessness there are always workers leaving or quitting jobs without lining up new ones, and the mismatch between jobs and skills means many workers inevitably are displaced by technology. From 1999 through 2007, the Congressional Budget Office defined full employment as a jobless rate of 5 percent. Citing the difficulty the long-term unemployed face finding jobs due to the recession, the CBO now defines full-employment as 5.5 percent. At the White House, officials are continuing to press proposals that have found little support in Congress, particularly among Republicans who control the House of Representatives. Administration officials also point out that there have been 37 straight months of job growth, with nearly 7 million jobs created and argue that the budget pinch created by

this year’s automatic spending cuts are hurting job creation. Jason Furman, a veteran White House economist nominated to be chairman of Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, told a Senate committee that government could accelerate job growth by increasing spending in public works projects and tax credits to help small business expand payrolls both proposals that Obama has been making for two years. Furman also said that over the medium and long term the federal government should also make social programs for the poor and the elderly more efficient and change the nation’s tax code. But each of those would require a massive and unlikely effort in Congress. Republicans, unwilling to increase deficits in the short term, say Obama’s health care law and a slew of proposed and existing regulations have increased uncertainty in the private sector and contributed to low job growth. They have pushed Obama to liberalize oil and gas exploration and to build an oil pipeline from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico as ways of increasing employment. A Pew Research Center poll conducted last month found 44 percent approve of his handling of the economy, 50 percent disapprove. The public is divided on whether his administration’s policies have improved economic conditions, with 35 percent saying they made things better, 35 percent worse and 27 percent saying they’ve had no effect on the economy.

and sign, but talks have yet to begin. Eliasson said the U.N. would be happy to help start the process, but only if requested by the Afghan government. “The reconciliation process must be, if it is to be successful, Afghan-led,” he said, hoping for direct contacts between the parties. “As long as those contacts continue, there’s no specific need for the United Nations to be involved.” Also Tuesday, in the eastern province of Paktika, local police commander Azizullah Karwan said six Taliban militants were killed in a clash with one of his patrols. He said no police suffered casualties. In Ghazni, the neighboring province to the west, three policemen were killed and three wounded in a gunbattle with the Taliban around midday, district police chief Kasim Desiwal said. Four Taliban fighters were killed, he said.

$101 per barrel, the highest since May 2012, as the crisis in Egypt deepened. Egypt is not a major oil producer but controls the Suez Canal, a major shipping lane for Middle Eastern crude. While analysts are not expecting a resulting surge in gasoline prices, they could rise quickly if the Mideast unrest does disrupt oil supplies. Gas could also climb if a hurricane threatens the heart of the refining industry along the Gulf Coast. This year’s early summer decline, while welcome, is smaller than the seasonal drops of the last two years, when gas prices also fell between Memorial Day and Independence Day. Gasoline is 15 cents more expensive than it was last year at this time. Gas prices typically rise in late winter or early spring when refineries perform maintenance and switch from making winter gasoline blends to the more complex summer blends required for clean-air rules. When the nation’s refineries aren’t operating at full strength, supplies drop and prices rise. Once the maintenance is done, output rises and prices fall. “When refineries go down it can create immediate and severe havoc,” Kloza said. “It’s a very shallow distribution system, quick to fill and quick to empty.” That’s what happened in the Midwest earlier this year. A fire broke out at a Marathon refinery in Detroit in late April while maintenance was underway at an Exxon Mobil refinery in Joliet, Ill., and a

BP refinery in Whiting, Ind. Prices soared above $4 per gallon in parts of Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana. As the refineries recovered, prices quickly fell. By July 3, Ohio prices were $3.33. Regional spikes and plunges are likely to happen more often in coming years. The number of U.S. refineries has shrunk by a quarter since 1993 to 143, but the nation’s refining capacity has grown 18 percent since then. The remaining refineries are getting bigger, so if one goes down, it’s a bigger shock to the system. Some U.S. drivers will be paying a little more because of higher gasoline taxes that went into effect July 1. California and Maryland taxes rose 3.5 cents per gallon, Connecticut’s climbed 4 cents, and Wyoming’s 10 cents. Virginia drivers are getting a break gas taxes there are falling 6.4 cents. Gasoline taxes account for the biggest difference in pump prices for U.S. drivers. Local, state and federal taxes vary from nearly 70 cents per gallon in New York, California and Hawaii to half that in Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Virginia, according to the American Petroleum Institute, the industry’s chief lobbying group. Adil Mehta of Chatsworth, Calif., has seen gasoline fall a few cents in the past several days to $3.89, but he is afraid it will reverse course when higher state taxes take effect. The average price in California is already the highest in the Lower 48 states, at $3.99 per gallon.

Medley honored by Troy Lions Club TROY — Robert Medley of the Troy Lions Club received a Lions Clubs International Leadership Award at the recently concluded Lions State Convention. Medley was honored for his work in the new Lions initiative of the Preschool Vision MEDLEY Screening Program. This program screens children age 6 and under for Amblyopia (lazy eye) and Strabismus (misaligned eyes). “More than one in 50 children have one of these two conditions and if left

untreated by age 6, it can cause lifelong vision loss in the problem eye,” Medley said. “Lion club members are now working to prevent vision problems in addition to helping the already visually impaired.” During the presentation ceremony held in Columbus, the head of the Ohio Lions, council chair David Gauch of Garrettsville, Ohio, noted that Medley has spearheaded the local club’s program and has assisted the entire state of Ohio’s program through his work. The Leadership Award is one of

the highest awards that a Lion Club member can receive. The Troy Lions Club will continue its preschool vision screening program in the fall with the cooperating of Health Partners and local preschools and church groups. The Troy Lions Club is a non-profit community service organization serving Troy, Covington, Pleasant Hill, Tipp City and surrounding areas of Miami County since 1942. Their primary mission is vision health. The Troy Lions Club also provides scholarships and supports many community programs. For more information, see the Lions website at or call (937) 335-7345.

Iran president may help shield rulers DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — For a lesson in what Hasan Rowhani’s reformist-backed presidency could mean for Iran, a promise Sunday by the ultra-powerful Revolutionary Guard to cooperate with him is a good guide. Like the rest of Iran’s ruling Islamic establishment, the Guard, which has kept a tight lid on any hints of opposition for years, is for the moment embracing Rowhani, even though he is almost certain to return once-silenced moderates into the political fold and restore the voice of liberal-leaning Iranians who danced in the streets after his stunning election victory. The reason is because in one of the more curious twists of Iranian politics the opposition’s accidental hero Rowhani also may become a lucky charm for the ruling system. His surprise victory allows the Islamic leadership to seek a bit of legitimacy among liberals and others who felt they exiled off the political map after the crackdowns following massive protests in 2009 over the disputed re-election of the now-exiting Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. “They counted my vote!” some Rowhani supporters chanted in a mix of celebration and shock after the announcement of the results from Friday’s election. Rowhani’s mild manifesto sprinkled with words like “moderation” and “dialogue” also could provide a honeymoon period for the leadership as a whole. Factions in Israel and the U.S. that have promoted military options against Iran’s nuclear program may find themselves in search of an audience with Rowhani playing the role of tension-easer. The ecstatic outpouring of Iranians dancing and celebrating in the streets Saturday night and Sunday reflected the hopes that Rowhani can bring an end to the domination of hard-liners for the past eight years under Ahmadinejad, with arrests against the opposition and restrictions on rights. Many saw the win as a slap to the ruling clerics, sending a message that they cannot keep the opposition bottled up. Rowhani does have a people-power mandate that certainly will be factored in by Iran’s rulers. But the scope of his win more than three times of votes of the runnerup doesn’t give him any extra-credit powers. Iran’s presidency is still without the tools to take any major initiatives without clearance from supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei or, by extension, the Revolutionary Guard. The ruling clerics not the president hold all the cards in policymaking and make every make decision such as nuclear efforts, dealings with the West or Iran’s aid to its ally Bashar Assad in Damascus, who sent Rowhani a congratulations message Sunday that urged for the countries to remain united. Rowhani had his first meeting as president-elect on Sunday, who offered “necessary guidelines” to Rowhani, state TV said, without elaborating. In reaction to the positive vibes, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Sunday against being lulled by “wishful thinking” and urged for increased sanctions to rein in Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Some Israeli commentators have even joked with a dash of truth that Israeli hawks will miss Ahmadinejad as the best salesman for their policies. The West and allies fear Iran could be moving toward a nuclear weapon. Iranian officials including the 64-year-old Rowhani a former nuclear negotiator insist the country’s only seek reactors for energy and medical use. “With a moderate in as president instead of Ahmadinejad, Israel has to change its tone,” said Meir Javedanfar, an Iranian-born political analyst based in Israel. “The sell-by date of repeating the same line of ‘all options remain on the table’ has expired.”

Leaving is hard; getting left behind is harder There’s something to be said for staying within one’s comfort zone and wrapping oneself in the warm, safe cocoon of familiarity. Let’s face it — it takes courage to strike out and explore new territory; to remove yourself from all that you have ever known. History tends to remember the intrepid explorers favorably — Christopher Columbus, Lewis and Clark, Neil Armstrong all will be remembered as brave men who dared to go where others feared to tread. Often forgetten, however, are the ones who had the courage to stay behind. Sure, it takes tremendous amounts of bravery to leave home and strike out on your own — but let us not forget how much courage it also takes to stay behind watched those loved ones leave. As the fourth of five children, I spent a significant part of my youth watching the people I love walk out the door. After spending a decade sharing a bedroom with my two older brothers, they left for college. Not just any colleges, mind you — but military academies on the opposite ends of the country. They didn’t get to bring home a sack full of dirty laundry every weekend like some college kids. Because of their military training

When Chris and Steven left home, I was in the fourth and fifth grades, respectively. They never came home again. At the age of 11, I had all but lost the two biggest male influences in my life. Gone were the two people who taught me how to tie my shoes, ride a bike and hit a baseball. When I got into junior high and high school, I had to seek advice about girls from my brothers via handwritten letters sent off to Maryland and Colorado. I can’t imagine the courage it took for either one of them, at the age of 18, to say goodbye to their

family, friends and girlfriends, get on a plane and leave for places where the first things that happened to them was they got their heads shaved and screamed at. Of course, I’m not sure how many people necessarily realize how hard it was for an 11 year old to have to watch that happen, either. Now that I’ve moved into adulthood, the goodbyes haven’t stopped — and they certainly haven’t gotten any easier, either. For almost 17 years, I’ve been a full-time employee of the Troy Daily News. I moved back home the day after I graduated and haven’t left since. I’ve come to the conclusion that — with the exception of the five years I spent in college — I’m going to live and die in this town. And I’m perfectly fine with that. This is all I’ve ever wanted. The Troy Daily News has been my safe haven. No matter what has happened in my life — getting married, having two kids, finding out one of my children had autism, the death of loved ones — the Troy Daily News has always been there for me. And I can’t ever see myself leaving this place. It’s home. Maybe I’m not brave enough to step out the front door of this

building and see what else is out there. Perhaps I just don’t have the guts. But I do know this — I’m brave enough to watch all the people I’ve loved leave this place. In the 17 years I’ve been here, I’ve watched dozens of people I respected and love leave. I’ve seen the three biggest influences in my journalism career — the first executive editor, managing editor and sports editor I ever worked for — leave. My wife, whom I met here, has since moved on. Two of the groomsmen in my wedding — and two of my best friends on this planet — are no longer working at the Troy Daily News. So many people who have meant so much to me have walked out the door of the this place. Come Monday, three more members of my TDN family will be leaving us for good. And while I’m always happy to see people move on and take the next step in life, there’s always a selfish part of me that doesn’t know how I’ll soldier on without them. Good luck guys. This place — and myself — won’t be the same without you. Troy’s very own David Fong appears on Thursdays in the Troy Daily News. Well … bye.

Chechen rebel calls for attacks Hopes to disrupt upcoming Sochi Olympics MOSCOW (AP) — A leading Chechen rebel on Wednesday called on Islamist militants in Russia’s North Caucasus to disrupt the upcoming Olympics in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, reversing his previous appeal not to target civilians in the region. Sochi is hosting the Winter Games in February, a pet project for President Vladimir Putin, who is determined for them to be a success. The overall bill for the games stands at $51 billion, making them by far the most expensive Olympics in history. Doku Umarov, a widely known Chechen rebel leader, urged his fighters to “do their utmost to

derail” the games, which he described as “satanic dances on the bones of our ancestors.” “We have the obligation to use all means to prevent this,” he said in a video posted on a rebel website on Wednesday. Umarov last year urged his fighters to avoid hitting civilian targets because Russians in Moscow were taking to the streets en masse to protest against Putin. Security experts have said the Islamic insurgency raging across the North Caucasus mountains that tower over Sochi is a daunting threat to the games although rebels have not attacked Sochi so far. Dagestan, which lies about 300

miles east of Sochi, has become the center of the insurgency that spread across the North Caucasus region after two separatist wars in 1990s in neighboring the Chechnya. Rebels seeking to carve out a caliphate, or Islamic state, have targeted police and other officials in near-daily shootings and bombings. Umarov is believed to be their most influential leader. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the elder of the two ethnic Chechen brothers who are accused of staging the Boston Marathon bombings, spent six months last year in Dagestan. Jean-Claude Killy, head of the IOC coordination commission for Sochi, said such threats are to be

expected.“We get threats before every Olympics,” he told The Associated Press. “This cannot be taken lightly. I think the Russians are well equipped to face the challenge.” The Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee said in an emailed comment that ensuring security at the games is “the responsibility of the state” and will be its priority. Russia’s National AntiTerrorism Committee said in a statement on Wednesday that it is working to eliminate threats at all international sporting events in the country including the Olympics. Officials said that they aim “to identify and avert various threats, including those of terrorism.” Ramzan Kadyrov, a strongman who rules Chechnya, played down

the influence of Umarov and promised that his security forces would track him down. “Before the Olympics, I think, I’m sure, that we will destroy him,” Kadyrov told the Interfax news agency. “We search for him every day, but he is nowhere to be found.” Press officers for the Interior Ministry in Russia’s southern district, which includes the North Caucasus, declined to comment. An officer of the Interior Ministry’s special task force in the North Caucasus, who asked not to be identified because he was not allowed to comment publicly, told The Associated Press that Umarov’s statement could prompt Russians to step up their efforts to comb the mountainous areas where Umarov could be hiding.

Egyptian army ousts Morsi President decries ‘full coup’ CAIRO (AP) — The armed forces ousted Egypt’s first democratically elected president Wednesday after just a year in power, installing a temporary civilian government, suspending the constitution and calling for new elections. Islamist President Mohammed Morsi denounced it as a “full coup” by the military. After the televised announcement by the army chief, millions of antiMorsi protesters in cities around the country erupted in delirious scenes of joy, with shouts of “God is great” and “Long live Egypt.” Fireworks burst over crowds dancing and waving flags in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, epicenter of the 2011 uprising that ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak. Now it was one of multiple centers of a stunning four-day anti-Morsi revolt that brought out the biggest anti-government rallies Egypt has seen, topping even those of 2011. But the move potentially throws the country into further confrontation. Moments after the army statement, a statement on the Egyptian president’s office’s Twitter account quoted Morsi as saying the military’s measures “represent a full coup categorically rejected by all the free men of our nation.” Morsi has insisted his legitimacy as an elected president must not be violated or Egypt could be thrown in to violence. Some of his Islamist backers, tens of thousands of whom took to the streets in recent days, have vowed to fight to the end. “Down with the rule of the military,” some of them chanted after the army announcement, reviving a chant used by leftist revolutionaries during the nearly 17 months of direct military rule that followed Mubarak’s removal. The army has insisted it is not carrying out a coup, but acting on the will of the people to clear the way for a new leadership. In his speech, army chief Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said the chief justice of the Supreme Constitutional Court would step in as interim president until new elections are held. He would be sworn in judges of his court, el-Sissi said. A government of technocrats would be formed with “full powers” to run the country. El-Sissi spoke while flanked by the country’s top Muslim and Christian clerics as well as pro-reform leader Mohammed ElBaradei and two representatives of the youth opposition movement behind the wave of

He promised “not to exclude anyone or any movement” from further steps. But he did not define the length of the transition period or when presidential elections would be held. He also did not mention any role for the military. The constitution, drafted by Morsi’s Islamist allies, was “temporarily suspended,” and a panel of experts and representatives of all political movements will consider amendments. He did not say whether a referendum would be held to ratify the changes, as customary. Seeking to avert a destabilizing backlash, he warned that the armed forces, police will deal “decisively” with violence. After the 9:20 p.m., the Brotherhood’s TV station went blank Shortly before the 9: 20 p.m. announcement, the army deployed troops, commandos and armored vehicles in cities around the country. In Cairo, they stationed on bridges over the Nile River and at major intersections. They also surrounded rallies being held by Morsi’s supporters an apparent move to contain them. Travel bans were imposed on Morsi and top figures from his Muslim Brotherhood including its chief Mohammed Badie and his powerful deputy Khairat el-Shater. At least 39 people have been killed in clashes since Sunday, when the mass protests against Morsi began hiking fears that greater violence could erupt when the final move was made against him. Street battles in the Nile Delta city of Kafr el-Sheikh on Wednesday left at least 200 people injured. The army’s move is the second time in Egypt’s 2 years of turmoil that it has forced out the country’s leader. It pushed out Mubarak and took power itself. This time, however, its removal of an elected figure could be more explosive.

Elected with 51.7 percent of the vote in last year’s presidential election, Morsi took office vowing to move beyond his roots in the Muslim Brotherhood. But his presidency threw the country into deep polarization. Those who took to the streets this week say he lost his electoral legitimacy because he tried to give the Brotherhood and Islamist allies a monopoly on power, pushed through a constitution largely written by his allies and mismanaged the country’s multiple crises. “Now we want a president who would really be the president of all Egyptians and will work for the country,” Said Shahin, a 19-year-old protester in Tahrir, said, falling to the ground to pray as soon as el-Sissi spoke. Mahmoud Badr, spokesman for Tamarod, or Rebel the youth movement behind the rallies praised the crowds in the streets saying, they succeded in “putting your revolution back on track.” “Let’s start a new page, a new page based on participation,” he wrote on his Twitter account. “Our hand is extended to all Morsi and his allies say the opposition never accepted their appeals for dialogue seen by opponents as empty gestures and that Mubarak loyalists throughout the government sabotaged their attempts to bring change. The military had issued an ultimatum on Monday giving Morsi 48 hours to find some solution with its opponents. Any deal, however, was a near impossibility, making it inevitable the military would move. Earlier in the day, el-Sissi met with ElBaradei, Egypt’s top Muslim cleric Al-Azhar Sheik Ahmed el-Tayeb and Coptic Pope Tawadros II, as well as youth representatives and some members of the ultraconservative Salafi movements.

LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Portugal’s government teetered on the brink of collapse Wednesday, sending financial markets around Europe into a tailspin and reigniting concerns about the euro area’s strategy for dealing with its prolonged financial crisis. Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho defied calls to resign late Tuesday but he was running out of options to keep his centerright coalition government together following the back-to-back resignations this week of two key ministers in a spat over austerity. If the governing coalition collapses, the ruling party would not have enough votes in parliament to pursue the reforms required to keep accessing the international bailout loans it depends on to avoid bankruptcy. That would put Portugal back to the front and center of Europe’s debt crisis, a spot it hasn’t held since it was bailed out in 2011. “Portugal is now the key event risk to watch in the eurozone,” said Holger Schmieding, an analyst with German bank Berenberg. The country’s main PSI 20 stock index fell 5.3 percent to 5,236, with bank shares falling up to 13 percent. Stock indexes across the rest of Europe also dropped on what was happening in Portugal, with Germany’s DAX down 1 percent and Spain’s IBEX off 1.6 percent. Another indicator of investor wariness, the interest rate on Portugal’s benchmark 10-year bond, jumped 0.85 percentage points to 7.31 percent. The rate, which is what Portugal would pay to borrow 10-year money, is far above the 5.23 percent rate it hit in May but still lower

than the 9.77 percent it was at this time last year. Portugal agreed on its 78 billion euro ($102 billion) bailout program with its fellow euro countries, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund two years ago when it could no longer afford to pay its way on the international debt markets. In return for the loans, and to keep debt under control, Portugal had to agree to a series of harsh cuts and reforms. The country also has to keep a grip on its finances so that it is able to return to the international debt markets once the current bailout loans run out in June 2014. It aims to reduce the budget deficit from 6.4 percent last year to 5.5 percent in 2013. Any failure to stick to an austerity program once the loans end would exclude Portugal from the ECB’s offer to buy the bonds of countries struggling with high borrowing costs. To qualify for the ECB program, the mere promise of which has already helped out Spain and Italy maintain their debts, a country must promise to reform their finances. If investors feel that Portugal is a risky bet and therefore charge sky-high rates to buy the country’s bonds, the government will be forced to ask for another bailout loan. Worse still, it could also be forced out of the eurozone. Though the rise in Portugal’s government bond rates is not an imminent threat since the government is not relying on bond markets but surviving on bailout loans they reflect concerns the country will be unable to get back on its feet once the program ends.


German minister: Drop U.S. sites if you fear spying BERLIN (AP) — Internet users worried about their personal information being intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies should stop using websites that send data to the United States, Germany’s top security official said Wednesday. NSA leaker Edward Snowden claimed Google, Facebook and Microsoft were among several Internet companies to give the U.S. National Security Agency access to their users’ data under a program known as PRISM. The companies have contested this, but the claims prompted outrage in Europe and calls for tighter international rules on data protection. “Whoever fears their communication is being intercepted in any way should use services that don’t go through American servers,” German Interior Minister Hans-Peter

Friedrich said. He also said German officials are in touch with their U.S. counterparts “on all levels” and a delegation is scheduled to fly to Washington next week to discuss the claims that ordinary citizens and even European diplomats were being spied upon by the NSA.

Officials say developers ruined pyramid LIMA, Peru — An official of Peru’s Cultural Patrimony Ministry says two real estate development companies have destroyed a pyramid at the oldest archaeological site near the country’s capital. Deputy Minister Rafael Varon says the companies used heavy equipment to tear down a 20-foot tall pyramid at the ruins of El Paraiso, a few miles north of Lima. He said Wednesday his agency has lodged criminal complaints against the two companies for the weekend’s damage.

Boston ups security Plans for first big event since bombings BOSTON (AP) — For many New Englanders, the Fourth of July means the Boston Pops performing the “1812 Overture” on the Charles River Esplanade and fireworks booming overhead. This year, it’s also the city’s first large public gathering since the Boston Marathon bombings an attack that authorities have said the suspects first considered staging on Independence Day. But as law enforcement officials put a ramped-up security plan in place Wednesday, many people in Boston said they wouldn’t give in to fear of terrorism by changing their plans or staying away from public celebrations. Catherine Lawrie, a 54-year-old Massachusetts Senate employee, walked down near the Esplanade to hear some of the performers rehearse Wednesday. She was disappointed a footbridge to the river was blocked because of increased security, but said Boston looked ready to host a big party without any worries about safety. She also wasn’t thinking about the bombing suspects’ alleged original target. “I’m thinking of independence and what our country is about,” Lawrie said. Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart said the tight security

reminded him of what it was like during the city’s first July Fourth celebration following the Sept. 11 attacks. He said before then, the thought of having bomb-sniffing dogs at the Esplanade was odd. “The core of terrorism is psychological. I think this is a perfect time to come together as Bostonians,” he said. “Events are a good way to move on from events like what happened.” East Boston resident Christy Scott, who watched the Boston Marathon from the halfway point, gathered with her family Wednesday to watch the concert rehearsal. The 41-year-old wore a bracelet that said “Boston Strong,” the slogan that since the April 15 attack has come to represent the city’s refusal to give in to the fear of terrorism. “Not about to change our plans and traditions,” she said. “We’re just not going to live in fear.” Boston University chemistry professor Sean Elliott also brought relatives to the area. “I’m not nervous,” the 41-year-old said. “I am sure that the human spirit will thrive. I’m sure it will be a great festival like it is every year.” Authorities have said the concert and fireworks display usually attracts 500,000 to 600,000 spectators, but 33-year-old cab driver Saidon Mayugi suggested some

Local, state and federal authorities coordinated on a security plan that includes a greater lawenforcement presence.

Castro is accused of holding three women captive for nearly a decade. fathered with one of the women he is accused of kidnapping and raping. The judge denied the request. “I just think that would be inappropriate,” Russo said. Castro has pleaded not guilty to a 329-count indictment alleging he kidnapped three women off the streets between 2002 and 2004 when they were 14, 16 and 20 years old and held them for a decade in his two-story home in a rough

Cleveland neighborhood. He fathered a 6-year-old daughter with one woman and is accused of starving and punching a second to cause her to miscarry. He was arrested May 6, shortly after one of the women broke through a door at the home and yelled to neighbors for help. The trial is scheduled for Aug. 5, but Russo said it could be delayed. Another hearing is set for July 24. 40294267


CLEVELAND (AP) — A man charged with holding three women captive in his Cleveland home for about a decade and raping them is competent to stand trial, a judge ruled Wednesday. Cuyahoga County Judge Michael Russo said the results of an examination of Ariel Castro last week showed that he is mentally able to understand the charges and assist attorneys in his defense. Also Wednesday, prosecutor Saleh Awadallah said a meeting is planned July 11 to discuss the possibility of seeking the death penalty for the 52-year-old Castro, who faces aggravated murder charges stemming from allegations that he caused the deliberate termination of one of the women’s pregnancies. Awadallah invited Castro’s attorney, Craig Weintraub, to submit evidence to him before the meeting to support an argument against the death penalty in the upcoming discussions. Castro’s attorneys have previously hinted that he might plead guilty if talk of capital punishment was taken off the table. Awadallah said prosecutors would be going back to the county grand jury to seek more charges against Castro, but he didn’t know when that would happen. At the end of the hearing, Castro, his bearded chin tucked to his chest for most of time, asked for permission to visit with the child he

Happy Fourth of July

Today: 5 p.m.: Miami Valley Events Calendar 8 p.m.: Have History Will Travel 11 p.m.: Tales of the Strange

Dear Readers: Happy July 4th! While you're grilling hot dogs, scooping potato salad and spending the day with family and friends, please remember the reason we celebrate this day. Here's one of our favorite pieces, originally written in 1955 as a public relations advertisement for the Norfolk and Western Railway company magazine (now the Norfolk Southern Corporation) and updated in 1976. Although some of the statistics have changed over the years, the sentiment remains the same: "I Am the Nation" by Otto Whittaker I was born on July 4, 1776, and the Declaration of Independence is my birth certificate. The bloodlines of the world run in my veins, because I offered freedom to the oppressed. I am many things and many people. I am the nation. I am 250 million living souls — and the ghost of millions who have lived and died for me. I am Nathan Hale and Paul Revere. I stood at Lexington and fired the shot heard around the world. I am Washington, Jefferson and Patrick Henry. I am John Paul Jones, the Green Mountain Boys and Davy Crockett. I am Lee and Grant and Abe Lincoln. I remember the Alamo, the Maine and Pearl Harbor. When freedom called, I answered and stayed until it was over, over there. I left my heroic dead in Flanders Field, on the rock of Corregidor, on the bleak slopes of Korea and in the steaming jungle of Vietnam. I am the Brooklyn Bridge, the wheat lands of Kansas and the granite hills of Vermont. I am the coalfields of the Virginias and Pennsylvania, the fertile lands of the West, the Golden Gate and the Grand Canyon. I am Independence Hall, the Monitor and the Merrimac. I am big. I sprawl from the Atlantic to the Pacific — my arms reach out to embrace Alaska and Hawaii. I am more than five million farms. I am forest, field, mountain and desert. I am quiet villages — and cities that never sleep. You can look at me and see Ben Franklin walking down the streets of Philadelphia with his breadloaf under his arm. You can see Betsy Ross with her needle. You can see the lights of Christmas and hear the strains of "Auld Lang Syne" as the calendar turns. I am Babe Ruth and the World Series. I am 110,000 schools and colleges and 330,000 churches where my people worship God as they think best. I am a ballot dropped into a box, the roar of a crowd in a stadium and the voice of a choir in a cathedral. I am an editorial in a newspaper and a letter to a Congressman. I am Eli Whitney and Stephen Foster. I am Tom Edison, Albert Einstein and Billy Graham. I am Horace Greeley, Will Rogers and the Wright Brothers. I am George Washington Carver, Jonas Salk and Martin Luther King Jr. I am Longfellow, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Walt Whitman and Thomas Paine. Yes, I am the nation and these are the things that I am. I was conceived in freedom and, God willing, in freedom I will spend the rest of my days. May I possess always the integrity, the courage and the strength to keep myself unshackled, to remain a citadel of freedom and a beacon of hope to the world. Dear Annie: Anybody who makes it a habit to call every day can become a nuisance. A friend phones me every night just as I'm settling down to watch TV. I've become an unwilling, unpaid substitute psychiatrist for an hour of free listening. I've started saying that I'm watching a great movie and can't be torn away, or that I'm expecting a call from someone else. I hope she is listening to the message I'm trying to get across to her and to others who read your column. — N.C.

What can I use to get gum off the drum? Dear Heloise: I took a load of my best friend’s clothes out of the dryer to discover he didn’t empty his pockets (that’s right, I don’t check pockets), and a pack of gum was left in a pocket — gum on the drum! I rubbed a little peanut butter on the drum, wiped it off with a soft cloth and then wiped the drum with a little degreaser (just to be safe). Good as new! — Tammy, via email I’m glad this worked for you. Here’s another way to remove gum from a dryer drum: The gum needs to be softened first. To do this, put a couple of old towels in the dryer. Let it run on the warm setting for a

Hints from Heloise Columnist few minutes. Make a paste of 1 tablespoon of powdered laundry detergent and water. Next, scrub the gum stains with the paste and a nylon-net scrubbie. Finally, wipe the inside of the dryer with a damp towel until there is no gum residue left. And just to be on the safe side, don’t use the dryer until you run a

couple of old, damp towels inside. Use a damp towel to wipe out the inside of the dryer. And important for all readers: Check all pockets before putting garments into the dryer. You never know where gum, a lipstick or lip-balm tube or a crayon might be hiding. — Heloise REUSABLE PLASTIC STRAWS Dear Heloise: My wife and I use the insulated drink cups that come with a reusable plastic straw. Cleaning the straws became problematic. One day, I used an extra-long pipe cleaner. It works great, and now we feel more comfortable knowing the straw is clean as a

whistle. — A Reader, via email HANDY STROLLER Dear Heloise: I read the hint about a woman bringing her dog to the vet in a baby stroller. My older mother still gets around pretty well, but she needs some help with balance. She takes an umbrella stroller with her whenever she goes out. It’s a good place to put her purse and bags so that she isn’t juggling packages. It gives her an extra bit of stability, and it’s smaller and easier to maneuver than a walker, which she really doesn’t need. The stroller has been a perfect solution to her staying mobile. — Nancie Bartley, via email



Thursday, July 4, 2013











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Friday, July 5, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Keep busy today because you are restless, energetic and full of bright ideas. You'll enjoy talking to everyone as well as reading little bits of information because today you want to know everything! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Trust your moneymaking ideas, because you might come up with something original and different today. If shopping, you might buy something high-tech or perhaps something modern for your home. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The Moon is in your sign today, which makes you frisky and energetic. You might be a bit more emotional than you usually are in your response to others; but the good news is you also feel lucky! CANCER (June 21 to July 22) If you can cocoon or hide today, you will enjoy it because you need to get away from the busyness of life around you. Seek out some quiet moments to replenish your energy. We all need to take time to restore our souls. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Enjoy schmoozing with others today, especially in group situations. A conversation with a female companion could be significant. Remember to listen as well as talk. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Private details about your personal life might be made public today. (Oh my.) Do you need to do some damage control? LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Because you are hungry for adventure and a chance to learn something new, do something different today. Go someplace you've never been before. Be bold! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a good day to discuss how to share something or how to address issues regarding jointly held property. Everyone is innovative and full of bright ideas. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) With the Moon opposite your sign today, be prepared to compromise. Tolerance and patience will win your day. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Discussions with co-workers, especially about computers or technology, will go well today. People are eager to try new things. (Plus, they are curious.) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Any kind of social diversion will delight you today. Enjoy sports events, movies, the theater, playful times with children and, of course, romance! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Discussions with a family member (probably female) will be significant today. You will see that two heads are better than one when it comes to finding clever solutions. YOU BORN TODAY You lead an interesting, fascinating life because you are both interesting and interested. You love variety, and you like characters. You also know how to move when opportunity presents itself. No matter what you do, you express yourself with flair and verve. This year, something you've been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish in order to make room for something new.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Thursday, July 4, the 185th day of 2013. There are 180 days left in the year. This is Independence Day. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was adopted by delegates to the Second Continental Congress in Philadelphia. On this date: • In 1802, the United States Military Academy officially opened at West Point, N.Y. • In 1863, the Civil War Siege of Vicksburg, Miss., ended as a Confederate garrison surrendered to Union forces.

• In 1912, the 48-star American flag, recognizing New Mexico statehood, was adopted. A train wreck near Corning, N.Y., claimed 39 lives. • In 1939, Lou Gehrig of the New York Yankees delivered his famous farewell speech in which he called himself “the luckiest man on the face of the earth.” • In 1942, Irving Berlin’s musical review “This Is the Army” opened at the Broadway Theater in New York. • In 1959, America’s 49-star flag, recognizing Alaskan statehood, was officially unfurled. • In 1960, America’s 50-star flag, recognizing Hawaiian statehood, was

officially unfurled. • In 1982, the space shuttle Columbia concluded its fourth and final test flight with a smooth landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California. Heavy metal rocker Ozzy Osbourne married his manager, Sharon Arden, in Maui, Hawaii. • Today’s Birthdays: Actress Eva Marie Saint is 89. Actress Gina Lollobrigida is 86. Playwright Neil Simon is 86. Broadcast journalist Geraldo Rivera is 70. Singer John Waite is 58. Tennis Hall of Famer Pam Shriver is 51. TV personality Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is 31. Rhythmand-blues singer Melanie Fiona is 30.

45 percent containment on deadly fire YARNELL, Ariz. (AP) — Hundreds of firefighters battling a blaze outside the mountain town of Yarnell came off the line Wednesday to salute a procession of fire vehicles that had been left by 19 elite Hotshot crew members killed in the line of duty. The firefighters gathered along a highway to honor the Prescott-based unit on the same day that they reported significant progress in controlling the deadly blaze. The fire is now 45 percent contained, up from 8 percent earlier in the day, and authorities say the figure could change in the next day as they compile a more complete picture with sophisticated mapping techniques. The vehicles were driven by fellow Prescott firefighters. One of the trucks held backpacks, water jugs and coolers. Another was emblazoned with the group’s motto, in Latin: “To be, rather than to seem.” As the vehicles drove through downtown Prescott, they were greeted by a large crowd that lined the street and waved flags and cheered the motorcade. Fire crews across the U.S. also paused throughout the day to remember the Granite Mountain Hotshots and recognize the dangers firefighters face, said Jim Whittington, spokesman for the multiagency Southwest Incident Command Team. Gov. Jan Brewer said she would fly Arizona flags at half-staff for 19 days for each firefighter lost. A memorial service for all 19 firefighters has been set for Tuesday in the city of Prescott Valley at an arena that is home to a minor league hockey team. The arena can hold 6,000 people, and an overflow area may be set up outside. “One of the things that


A firefighter walks along a dirt path while battling a wildfire near Yarnell, Ariz., Wednesday.


This aerial photo shows Yarnell, Ariz., on Wednesday, in the aftermath of the Yarnell Hill Fire that claimed the lives of 19 members of an elite firefighting crew on Sunday. defines the entire wildland firefighting community is we don’t forget,” he said, adding that crews pay tribute every year to those who have died in the nation’s worst firefighting disasters. “And we will remember this one,” he said, his voice shaking. “It’s tough.” In the biggest loss of U.S. firefighters since 9/11, violent wind gusts on Sunday turned what was believed to be a manageable lightning-ignited forest fire in the town of Yarnell into a death trap that left no escape for the team of Hotshots, most of them in the prime of their lives. Fire investigators seeking to determine what went wrong were expected to make their way Wednesday to the site where the bodies were found to get their first look at the scene, a mountainous spot near Yarnell, said Mike Dudley of the

U.S. Forest Service who is on the team looking into the deaths. The investigation will include examining radio logs, the fire site and weather reports. They’ll also surely talk to the sole survivor of the blaze, the lookout who warned his fellow firefighters and friends that the wildfire was switching directions and heading straight for them. At one point, the blaze raced four miles in just 20 minutes, fed by the dry brush and 41 mph winds, said Yavapai County Sheriff ’s Capt. Jeff Newnum. Nearly 600 firefighters were fighting the blaze Wednesday, which has burned about 13 square miles. Hundreds were evacuated and crews erected perimeters around the homes. The hope is to allow residents back into their homes over the weekend

and contain the fire by July 12. The blaze has damaged or destroyed more than 100 homes and buildings, according to the Yavapai County Sheriff ’s Office. Officials earlier had provided different estimates ranging from 50 to 250 homes and other buildings lost in Yarnell, a town of about 700 people. The number has fluctuated because of limited access to the community. Reporters on Wednesday were allowed into a section of the fire area, where charred pine trees resembled burnt toothpicks sticking out of the hillsides. The ground was covered in a blackened patchwork, and the higher mountains behind the hills were speckled by pink retardant. The yards and driveways of a few isolated homes were marked by the spots of controlled

fires set by firefighters to beat back the blaze. The area was dusty and smoky but there were no visible flames. Fire officials did not take journalists near where the bodies of the 19 firefighters were found. Only one member of the crew, identified Tuesday as 21-year-old lookout Brendan McDonough, survived. After radioing others about the growing danger, McDonough made it to safety, while the rest were overtaken by the blaze. The team of investigators, comprised of forest managers and safety experts, was expected to release a preliminary report in days. “We have a responsibility to those lost and their loved ones, as well as to current and future wildland firefighters, to understand what happened as completely as possible,” Arizona State Forester

Scott Hunt said in a statement. Safety standards for wildland firefighters were toughened nearly 20 years ago when 14 firefighters died on Colorado’s Storm King Mountain, and investigators found a number of errors in the way the blaze was fought. In what fire authorities said was an eerily similar situation to the Arizona blaze, a rapid change in weather sent winds raging on Storm King in Colorado, creating 100foot flames. Firefighters were unable to escape, as a wall of fire raced up a hillside. Under the toughened policies, no firefighters should be deployed unless they have a safe place to retreat. They must also be continuously informed of changing weather and post lookouts. Sunday’s tragedy raised questions of whether the Hotshot crew should have been pulled out much earlier and whether all the usual precautions would have made any difference in the face of triple-digit temperatures, erratic winds and tinderbox conditions that caused the fire to explode.

Slather this delicious sauce on your hot dog We are having thunderstorms most of the evening. Our rain gauge shows we have more than 2 inches of rain already. I do think we have more, because the wind is blowing the rain, so it might not be quite the accurate amount going in. We also had a thunderstorm last night and received a half inch of rain. We were in need of rain, so we decided to water the garden. I told the boys maybe if we water the garden we will get rain. The rain clouds all seemed to go over us but soon after the garden was watered, the rain and storms arrived. My husband Joe and sons Benjamin and Joseph spent the day fishing on the nearby lake Saturday. They came home with around 50 bluegill, perch and crappies. Tonight we fried the fish for our supper along with hash browns and potatoes, cheese, ice cream and strawberries. Today on our “to do” list was to mop the floors, make strawberry freezer jam, and weed the garden. Seemed we were done early. When all the children pitch in to help, the work goes faster. It’s nice

The Homer Express?

July 4, 2013

Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey, front, is mobbed by catcher Ryan Hanigan, left, third baseman Todd Frazier, top, shortstop Zack Cozart, and second baseman Brandon Phillips, right, after Bailey threw a no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants Tuesday in Cincinnati.

Bailey adding up no-nos like his idol CINCINNATI (AP) — The Ryan Express has an honored passenger, a hard-throwin’ fellow Texan who wears the same number and has a nickname derived from a movie. Homer “Batman” Bailey? Come aboard! The right-hander made a little no-hitter history on Tuesday night, throwing his second in 10 months and the first in the majors this season. The Cincinnati Reds’ 3-0 win over the struggling San Francisco Giants gave Bailey another moment as big as his home state. It was Ryan-esque. “Obviously being from Texas and what a legend he is,” said Bailey, who wears No. 34 in tribute to his boyhood hero. “To do it once is extra special. To do it

twice — I don’t really have the words for it right now.” They do back home. “He comes from the state of Texas that has produced a lot of no-hitters,” said Reds manager Dusty Baker, who made the final out in Nolan Ryan’s fifth no-hitter. “It means a lot — and he’s still got some time left.” Ryan holds the record with seven career no-hitters. Bailey was so enamored with the fellow Texan — Ryan hails from Alvin, Bailey from La Grange — that he chose his No. 34 to honor him. His fastball and his strikeouts aren’t up to Ryan’s level, but he’s starting to catch up on those nohitters. And the folks back in Texas are paying attention.

Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Tony Cingrani throws against the San Francisco Giants in the first inning Wednesday in Cincinnati. Cingrani lasted 5 2-3 innings and took a 1-0 lead into the fifth — thanks to a sacrifice fly by Chris Heisey — when he gave up a two-run homer to San Fransisco’s Tony Abreu. But Heisey tied things up 2-2 in the bottom of the sixth inning with a solo shot, and that’s where things stayed until the top of the 11th inning at time of press. To find out who won, go to for the game story.

LONDON (AP) — Andy Murray had all of Britain on edge for five sets. Juan Martin del Potro only took five points to get the fans buzzing at Wimbledon. Two victories in two very different matches Wednesday sent Murray and del Potro onto the semifinals at the All England Club. Murray completed his seventh career comeback from two sets down to top Fernando Verdasco, 4-6, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4, 7-5. “Made some bad mistakes, poor choices on the court,” Murray said. “And then, I turned it around really well after that.” Earlier on Centre Court, del Potro hyperextended his left knee and crumpled to the ground on the fifth point, but shook off the injury for a 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (5) victory over No. 4 David Ferrer. “To be honest, I didn’t want to retire (being) in the quarters for first time at Wimbledon,” del Potro said. “And that’s the reason for continuing play. The doctors gave me good anti-inflammatories.” Del Potro’s next match is Friday against No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who took down No. 7 Tomas Berdych 7-6 (5), 6-4, 6-3 on Court 1.

Police find evidence in Hernandez ‘flop house’ Cavendish wins another Tour stage Mark Cavendish will never be the greatest Tour de France rider, because he will never win the race five times like Eddy Merkcx of Belgium and Frenchman Bernard Hinault. Still, the sprinter with thighs like thick hams could outdo both those legends — by winning more stages at cycling’s premier race. See Page 14.

said the evidence against him is circumstantial and he’s eager to clear his name. A message requesting comment on the documents was left Wednesday with a spokesman for Hernandez’s legal team. Hernandez’s two-bedroom apartment, which went for $1,200 a month, was located in a three-story complex in Franklin, a few towns over from his North Attleborough house. Police learned about it from Hernandez’s friend, Carlos Ortiz. Prosecutors say Ortiz was with Hernandez and Ernest Wallace when they drove with Lloyd to

an industrial park where Lloyd was shot. Police haven’t said who shot Lloyd. Ortiz, who lives in Hernandez’s hometown of Bristol, Conn, has since been charged with carrying a firearm the day of the shooting. Wallace is charged with being an accessory after the fact in the slaying According to the documents, Bristol police interviewed Ortiz the day before Hernandez was arrested. He told them “Hernandez has another address that not many people know about,” and that he thought he’d left a cellphone there.

Bailey ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 As soon as Bailey got Gregor Blanco on a routine groundout to end it, the videoboard at Minute Maid Park in Houston flashed: “La Grange native Homer Bailey of the Cincinnati Reds has just thrown his second career no-hitter.” And not just a second nohitter — the second consecutive no-hitter in the majors. Last year was the season of the no-no with seven in all, tying a modern record. By July 2, five already had been thrown. Bailey con-

tributed the last one of the bunch, a 1-0 win in Pittsburgh on Sept. 28. Seventeen starts later, he threw the first one of 2013 and made his home state proud. The last pitcher to throw such back-to-back no-hitters in the majors was Ryan, to STATS. according Baseball’s career strikeout king did it for the California Angels on Sept. 28, 1974, against Minnesota, and again on June 1, 1975, vs. Baltimore. This one was as easy as

could be. The defending World Series champions are in a deep hitting funk — two runs or less in nine of their last 12 games. They only came close to a hit one time. Bailey (5-6) walked Gregor Blanco leading off the seventh, the only Giants batter to reach base. Blanco advanced on a groundout then made the out that settled San Francisco’s only close call. Buster Posey hit a soft one-hopper that pulled Joey Votto away from first base. Bailey got a slow break off

the mound to cover the bag, setting up what would have been a close play. Maybe Posey beats Bailey to the base for an infield hit. “That would have been a sad way to lose a no-hitter,” Baker said. Instead, Votto saw Blanco break for third and threw him out. “Joey had a great headsup play. I was almost a little late getting to the bag,” Bailey said. Two innings later, Bailey finished it off so smoothly. He jumped to glove Brandon

Crawford’s high comebacker, struck out Tony Abreu and retired Blanco on a grounder to third baseman Todd Frazier. Then, he raised his arms in celebration, just as he did in Pittsburgh only 10 months earlier. Been there, done that. “It’s something I’ve already done, so I knew what to expect,” Bailey said of his easy-as-could-be step into rare territory. Votto had a sacrifice fly, and Brandon Phillips hit a two-run homer off Tim

Lincecum (4-9), who has lost his last six road decisions. That was all the help that Bailey needed on this night — one walk, nine strikeouts, no hits in a tidy 102 pitches. “He had his inner Batman out today,” Phillips said. Bailey got his nickname because teammates think he resembles actor Christian Bale, who played Batman on the big screen. The Giants didn’t put up much of a fight as they fell a season-low five games under .500.

Different kind of legend Cavendish piles on another stage victory at Tour de France MARSEILLE, France (AP) — Mark Cavendish will never be the greatest Tour de France rider, because he will never win the race five times like Eddy Merkcx of Belgium and Bernard Frenchman Hinault. Still, the sprinter with thighs like thick hams could outdo both those legends — by winning more stages at cycling’s premier race. By Cavendish’s warpspeed standards, his 24th stage win on Wednesday was a ride in the park. The teammates who led Cavendish to the finish, sucking him along in their wheels, building up his speed, were toiling like clockwork. Stamping on his pedals, head down, thighs pumping like pistons, Cavendish then whooshed off alone for the last 150 meters (yards), leaving everyone else in his wake. Cavendish was carrying so much momentum and this win in Marseille, France’s second-largest city, was so comfortable that he was able to sit up in the saddle and make a hand motion like cracking a whip as he crossed the line. One more stage win will tie Cavendish with Andre Leducq, the Frenchman who got 25 stage wins in the 1920s and 1930s, putting him third on the all-time list. Beyond Leducq is Hinault, who notched up 28 wins in the 1970s and ’80s. Merckx’s monument is 34, won from 1969 to 1975. Jacques Anquetil and Miguel Indurain also won five Tours, but didn’t win as many stages as Hinault and Merckx. Anquetil won 16; Indurain got 12. All seven of Lance Armstrong’s Tour wins were stripped or dop-


Britain’s Marc Cavendish crosses the finish line ahead of Edvald Boasson Hagen, second place, right, and Andre Greipel, left and fourth place, to win the fifth stage of the Tour de France over 228.5 kilometers (142.8 miles) with start in Cagnes-surMer and finish in Marseille, southern France, Wednesday. ing. This 100th Tour is the first since Armstrong’s fall last year. Cavendish says he isn’t fixated on Hinault or Merckx’s numbers. He notes that for many riders, winning just one stage — let alone the 11 he needs to draw level with Merckx — is a career-defining feat. “You have to show the Tour de France the respect it deserves,” he said. But then Cavendish isn’t any other rider. Before this edition, he collected on average nearly five wins at every Tour since 2008. In 2009, he got six. He won the last four sprint finishes on the Champs-Elysees in Paris, where he is unbeaten since 2009. While Merckx’s record is still a way off,

Hinault and most certainly Leducq look within Cavendish’s grasp. “Obviously I aim to win multiple stages each year. But to set any goals, any number … it does one of two things: It sets you up to fail for something or it puts like a mark on what you want to achieve and it can kind of stop you trying to move forward,” he said. Were Cavendish to overtake Hinault, it wouldn’t mean he is a better overall rider than the famously bad-tempered “Badger,” who was strong on every terrain. But in a sprint, Cavendish has no equal, at least in this generation. Although Cavendish downplays the chase for stage-win milestones, he is

certainly very aware of them. The Tour director, Christian Prudhomme, says that more than a year ago, at the Tour of Oman, he quietly tested Cavendish’s knowledge of Tour de France history and was delighted when he rattled off the names of Andre Darrigade, who won 22 stages in the 1950s and ’60s, as well as Leducq, Hinault, Merckx and their respective totals. “He is aware of what does it take … to become No. 1 on the list of most winning riders ever,” confirmed Rolf Aldag, one of the managers of Cavendish’s Omega Pharma-Quick Step team. “He has a chance to make history,” he said. “It’s a goal, it’s a target.”

“You’re more concerned about losing the match, not thinking so much that, I’m going to lose at Wimbledon. You’re concerned how the match is going and that you may lose. But when you’ve been in that position a lot of times, you know how to think through it and not get too far ahead of yourself.” In the earlier match, it looked as if del Potro would be done before he even broke a sweat. His left knee mummified in athletic tape, the 6-foot-6 Argentine chased an overhead into the corner, but his left foot slipped out from under him. His already aching knee straightened

suddenly, then bent backward. Del Potro crumpled to the ground and rolled twice into the far edge of the court. “I don’t try (for) a spectacular fall, but that was really painful for me,” del Potro said. After a break of about 10 minutes, del Potro was back on the court. He broke Ferrer twice in the first set, then moved easily through the second and third against one of the grittiest players in tennis. “I have my knee problem, but always the opponent, the other players, can have different injuries, too,” del Potro said. “You have to be strong, more than the rest.”

Wimbledon ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 Murray will play No. 24 Jerzy Janowicz, a 7-5, 6-4, 6-4 winner over Lukasz Kubot in the first Grand Slam meeting between two Polish men. Going against the 54thranked Verdasco, Murray certainly made things interesting for the British fans, looking for one of their own to call a Wimbledon champion for the first time in 77 years. He dropped the first two sets, unable to handle Verdasco’s pinpoint serves that reached as high as 136 mph. Slowly, though, he crept back into the match. In the sixth game of the fourth set, Murray saved a pair of break points first with a service

winner, then with one of his 13 aces. Three games later, he broke Verdasco, then served out the set. In the fifth set, the players held serve for 10 straight games. In the 11th, Murray broke, then served out the match at love. “I played at a very high level,” said Verdasco, appearing in a Grand Slam quarterfinal for the first time since the 2010 U.S. Open. “And to not be able to win is painful, of course.” It was Murray’s second comeback from two sets down at Wimbledon, adding to a 2008 victory over Richard Gasquet. “Yeah, you’re obviously concerned,” Murray said.

Going green: Stevens to coach Celtics BOSTON (AP) — The Green are getting greener. With aging stars Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce on their way to the Brooklyn Nets and Doc Rivers coaching the Los Angeles Clippers, the Boston Celtics hired 36year-old Brad STEVENS Stevens from Butler as their next head coach Wednesday. The move turns the tradition-bound franchise over to a mentor who is younger than Garnett and wasn’t yet born when Bill Russell won his 11th NBA champi-

onship in 1969 (or even when John Havlicek added two more in the 1970s). It’s the first time the Celtics have hired a college coach since Rick Pitino in 1997, and their first coach with no NBA experience of any kind since Alvin “Doggie” Julian gave way to Red Auerbach in 1950. “Though he is young, I see Brad as a great leader who leads with impeccable character and a strong work ethic” Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said in a release. “His teams

always play hard and execute on both ends of the court. Brad is a coach who has already enjoyed lots of success, and I look forward to working with him towards Banner 18.” Stevens has spent the last six years as the coach of Butler, leading the Bulldogs to back-to-back national championship games in 2010 and ‘11. He has a career winning percentage of .772 and never won fewer than 22 games in a season. He takes over a team that is three seasons removed from an appearance in the NBA finals; the Celtics won their unprecedented 17th championship

in 2008. But with Garnett and Pierce showing signs of slowing down in this year’s playoffs, when Boston was eliminated by the New York Knicks in the first round, Ainge has decided to rebuild. He allowed Rivers to take over the Clippers, extracting a first-round draft choice in return. Amid last week’s NBA draft, the Celtics and Nets agreed to a deal that would send Garnett and Pierce to Brooklyn in exchange for a package of players along with three first-round draft picks. Now, Stevens will be the one to work with those young players.

Sabine Lisicki reacts as she wins a women’s singles quarterfinal match against Kaia Kanepi at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships in Wimbledon, London Tuesday.

4 women, 0 major titles in semis LONDON (AP) — In 11 of the past 13 years, Serena or Venus Williams — and sometimes both — reached the Wimbledon final. The sisters collected five championships each in that span. This time around, Serena lost in the fourth round. Venus didn’t show up at all, sidelined by a bad lower back. So the 2013 semifinals at the All England Club on Thursday will be populated by a far less famous, and far less accomplished, bunch. Still, No. 4-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, No. 15 Marion Bartoli of France, No. 20 Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium and No. 23 Sabine Lisicki of Germany provide a fitting foursome for a Wimbledon unlike any other. Not only has none of the four women left won a Wimbledon title, none has won any Grand Slam title. Petra Kvitova, the tournament’s 2011 champion, probably put it best after losing in the quarterfinals: “Very weird Grand Slam over here.” Indeed. Never before in the 45-year Open era had no previous major champion reached the Wimbledon women’s semifinals. There were eight owners of Grand Slam trophies in the field when play began last week. One by one, they left, with Lisicki accounting for three: She beat Francesca Schiavone in the first round and Sam Stosur in the third, before stopping Serena Williams’ 34match winning streak. Maria Sharapova and Ana Ivanovic lost in the second round, the same day Victoria Azarenka pulled out because of a knee injury. The last major winners were sent home Tuesday, when Flipkens beat Kvitova, and Radwanska eliminated Li Na. “Very unexpected,” Bartoli said, describing the semifinal lineup, along with the whole tournament, “but that’s also the magic of it.”

On Thursday, she will Flipkens, and play Radwanska will face Lisicki. The men’s semifinals Friday are No. 1 Novak Djokovic against No. 8 Juan Martin del Potro, and No. 2 Andy Murray against No. 24 Jerzy Janowicz. Djokovic owns six major titles, while Murray and del Potro have one apiece. The women’s quartet, meanwhile, has participated in a total of two Grand Slam finals, both at Wimbledon: Bartoli lost to Venus Williams in 2007, and Radwanska lost to Serena Williams last year. This is Lisicki’s second Grand Slam semifinal; she lost one at Wimbledon two years ago. Flipkens, meanwhile, only once even made it as far as the fourth round at a major tournament until this week, so she’ll be making her semifinal debut. She sure has come a long way from a year ago at this time, when she was winning the title at a low-level, $25,000 tournament on clay. Blood clots in her leg had forced her off the WTA tour for two months, and her ranking slid outside the top 250, so she couldn’t even get into the draw for qualifying at Wimbledon. “I think I’m the most surprising name in the last four,” Flipkens acknowledged, “but I don’t really care, to be honest, at this moment.” And why should she? What matters is that she is one of only four women who still have a chance to earn the championship Saturday. “It’s a dream — more than a dream — coming true,” Flipkens said. “There’s no words.” The 27-year-old Flipkens and 28-year-old Bartoli have never played a match. Perhaps not surprisingly, they don’t know much about each other, either. “I only know she has a two-handed forehand and backhand,” said Flipkens, who wears eyeglasses on court. “That’s about it.”
