Commissioners adopt budget Cuts from 2010 still affecting departments BY WILL E SANDERS Civitas Media

TROY — Miami County Commission adopted the 2014 tax budget during a special meeting that projects revenues at $21.9 million while forecasting expenditures at $27.89 million. Meanwhile, county commis-

sioners approved other fund revenues and appropriations at $69.3 and $68.7, respectively. Commissioners said $4.2 million in budget cuts in 2010 are still positively affecting county budgets, including the one passed Monday. “The county has been diligent in keeping their budget line items tight since the 2010 cuts,” said Commissioner John

“Bud” O’Brien. “It has put us in a strong position to better manage our services and expenses.” Examples O’Brien listed include the combination of four departments into one, forming the department of development, moving all county IT personnel under the county auditor and making them available to all county officers, and launching a new county website.

He added that county elected officials and department heads should be “commended” for Miami County’s current “fiscal health.” O’Brien labeled this year’s tax budget process as a “fairly smooth process, even with the archaic software that was used” by the Miami County Auditor’s Office. New accounting software will be installed in the county next year to better

Lincoln Center takes produce to market Staff Writer

TROY — Between the rows of fresh tomatoes, lettuce and green beans, Lincoln Community Center members proudly showed off their green thumbs as they harvested fresh produce in the summer heat Wednesday. It is the second year for the Lincoln Community Center to plant a garden behind the facility in Troy, but it’s the first year for the center’s youth to harvest and then sell the organic garden’s produce at the Downtown Troy’s Farmers’ Market. According to executive director Shane Carter, the garden started as a way for the center’s youth to grow and eat fresh produce for a healthier eating habits. “The main goal is for the kids to benefit by eating better food and fresh produce,” Carter said. Carter was later approached by Susan Funderberg, Downtown Troy’s Farmers’ Market coordinator, to expand the garden and the LLC’s message at the Saturday morning market. “It’s been a great experience for us,” Carter said. “The farmers’ have even been so helpful and shared their tips and ask how things are going — it’s been great.” Yet what Carter says he has enjoyed Staff Photos | ANTHONY WEBER

Bomber as rock star? Rolling Stone cover outrage NEW YORK (AP) — Sultry eyes burn into the camera lens from behind tousled curls. A scruff of sexy beard and loose T-shirt are bathed in soft, yellow light. The close-up of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover of Rolling Stone to hit shelves Friday looks more like a young Bob Dylan or Jim Morrison than the 19-yearold who pleaded not guilty a little more than a week ago in the Boston Marathon bombing, his arm in a cast and his face swollen in court. Has the magazine, with its roundly condemned cover, offered the world its first rock star of an alleged Islamic terrorist? The same image of Tsarnaev was widely circulated and used by newspapers and magazines before, but in this context it took on new criticism and accusations that Rolling Stone turned the bombing defendant into something more appealing. “I can’t think of another

instance in which one has glamorized the image of an alleged terrorist. This is the image of a rock star. This is the image of someone who is admired, of someone who has a fan base, of someone we are critiquing as art,” said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, a communications professor and the director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania. Public outrage was swift, including hard words from the Boston mayor, bombing survivors and the governor of Massachusetts. At least five retailers with strong New England ties — CVS , Tedeschi Food Stores and the grocery chain the Roche Bros. — said they would not sell the issue that features an in-depth look into how a charming, well-liked teen took a dark turn toward radical Islam. Stop & Shop and Walgreens followed suit. Tsarnaev is not referred to as Tsarnaev in the article. The magazine uses his playful

diminutive instead in a headline: “Jahar’s World.” With cover teasers for other stories on Willie Nelson, Jay-Z and Robin Thicke, it declares for the Tsarnaev story: “The Bomber. How a Popular, Promising Student was Failed by His Family, Fell Into Radical Islam and Became a Monster.” Rolling Stone did not address whether the photo was edited or filtered in any way in a brief statement offering condolences to bombing survivors and the loved ones of the dead. “The fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is young, and in the same age group as many of our readers, makes it all the more important for us to examine the complexities of this issue and gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens,” the statement said. That’s little consolation for James “Bim” Costello, 30, of

your car isn’t your castle

WASHINGTON (AP) — You can drive, but you can’t hide. A rapidly growing network of police cameras is capturing, storing and sharing data on license plates, making it possible to stitch together people’s movements whether they are stuck in a commute, making tracks to the beach or up to no good. For the first time, the number of license tag captures has reached the millions, according to a study published Wednesday by the American Civil Liberties Union based on information from hundreds of law enforcement agencies. Departments keep the records for weeks or years, sometimes indefinitely, saying they can be crucial in tracking suspicious cars, aiding drug

Marijuana operation uncovered Staff Reports

WEST MILTON — A pot operation has been discovered in a West Milton resident’s home, in a search intended to look for stolen items. At 8 a.m. Monday, Sgt. Chris Graham of the Tipp City Police Department, assisted by the West Milton Police Department, served a search warrant at 409 N. Main St. The warrant was in reference to supplies stolen approximately a year ago from the city of Tipp City, including a small box trailer and painting supplies. According to Miami County Sheriff’s Office reports, while searching the residence Graham observed a large number of other hand tools, power tools, welders, air compressors, lawn mowers, a four wheeler, weedeater and chainsaw. West Milton police also discovered an indoor marijuana growing operation. They subsequently applied for and obtained a second search warrant so that a more thorough search could be completed, aided by Miami County Sheriff’s Office deputies. Items are being checked with the Miami County Sheriff’s Office and Union Police Department against their stolen property list, according to West Milton Chief of Police Garry Kimpel. Arrests are pending. July 24 8:00 P.M.

Budget n Continued from page 1 aid in the annual budgeting process to make it an even smoother process. With Commissioner Richard Cultice absent from the meeting, O’Brien and fellow Commissioner Jack Evans approved the budget, which was based upon projections of estimated carry-over, estimated revenue and anticipated expenditures for the upcoming year. Evans said the cooperation amongst county officials “to hold the line with major budget cuts” implemented in 2010 is still benefiting county coffers. “If those cuts were not in place we would not be in the position that we are in today,” Evans said. “ Monday’s approval followed a public hearing that was held concerning the tax budget on June 27. Monday’s approval of the tax budget, which included the Troy-Miami County Public Library, was the first step in a two-step budgeting process. At the end of this year commissioners will adopt 2014 appropriations after holding tax hearings in the fall. O’Brien said the $4.2 million cuts in 2010 has made it possible for the county to have budget surpluses each year since, but noted that this week’s reopening of the Miami County Incarceration Facility will make the budget tighter. “It’s a tough budget item to pay for and it will make the remainder of our budget extremely tight,” the commissioner said. “… We continue to be cautiously optimistic and the general fund will be balanced in 2013 and, with hard work and cooperation, again in 2014.”


Kamryn Webster describes many of the vegetables grown in the community garden Wednesday at the Lincoln Community Center.

Carter said teaching the Lincoln Community Center youth how to grow their own vegetables may one day inspire a spirit of “self-reliance.” “Being healthy, being outside and feeding yourself healthy food you grow yourself is what it’s all about,” Carter said. “It’s hard work but it’s worth it.”

For Mike McDade, a junior at Troy High School, the garden was part of community service hours with the juvenile court system. After McDade fulfilled his probation requirement, Carter kept McDade working in the garden because the young man enjoyed it so much.

“It was a different experience for me,” McDade said. “I’ve never done anything like this. I’ve never worked in a garden before, but I’ve enjoyed doing it.” McDade also helped with the Lincoln Community Center’s produce stand at the farmer’s market on Saturday. “That was fun to see everything sell,” McDade said. Carter said he has shared gardening tips he learned from his grandmother growing up with the youth as they work each day in the garden. “The whole garden is organic,” Carter said as he straightened tomato stakes. “We may make some salsa after the farmers’ market is done, but the whole project is to give kids something to do and sell the produce to the public.” Carter said the proceeds of the garden will go to the Lincoln Community Center’s general fund and help fund the Lincoln Community Center’s “Back to School Bash” on Aug. 17. The garden also was funded by grants from the Troy Noon Optimists and Altrusa. For more information about the Lincoln Community Center, visit www.

Bomber n Continued from page 1 Malden, Mass., who needed pig skin grafts on most of his right arm and right leg after the bombing. His body was pebbled with shrapnel, including nails he pulled out of his stomach himself. Three of his close friends lost legs that day and others suffered serious burns and shrapnel injuries. “I think whoever wrote the article should have their legs blown off by someone,” struggle through treatment “and then see who they would choose to put on the cover. “ The accompanying story, he said, “just seems like a cry for attention” from Rolling Stone. Lauren Gabler had finished her fourth Boston Marathon and was two blocks from the finish line explosions that April day. At first she

thought the Rolling Stone photo, released on the magazine’s website and Facebook page, was of a model or a rock star. “All of a sudden you realize that’s the Boston bomber,” said Gabler, who lives in the Washington, D.C., area. “The cover almost tricks you into what you’re looking at. I haven’t read the article yet, and I know it will probably be quite in-depth, but my initial reaction is that the photo that’s being used almost makes him look like a good guy.” Rolling Stone said the cover story was part of its “long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day.” And the magazine has had plenty of covers featur-

ing people outside the realm of entertainment, from President Obama to Charles Manson. Putting criminals and alleged criminals on the covers of major magazines is justified if they are major news figures, said Samir Husni, a journalism professor who heads the Magazine Innovation Center at the University of Mississippi. It’s digitally manipulating a photo that never is, said Husni, reached by phone on vacation in his native Lebanon. “ They ’ll probably regret it later,” he said of Rolling Stone’s handling of the cover. “Even if it wasn’t doctored it’s going to bring those negative reactions.” Hundreds of Facebook and Twitter commenters condemned the magazine. Many cursed.

Others expressed sadness and still more vowed never to read or purchase the magazine again. Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino spoke for them in a letter he dashed off to Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner accusing the magazine of offering Tsarnaev “celebrity treatment” and calling the cover “ill-conceived, at best,” in that it supports the “terrible message that destruction gains fame for killers and their ‘causes.’” The letter goes on to call the cover an obvious marketing strategy and concludes: “The survivors of the Boston attacks deserve Rolling Stone cover stories, though I no longer feel that Rolling Stone deserves them.” What does the controversy say about the culture today? It’s a culture

that has already produced an online fandom for the attractive young bombing suspect, including young girls calling him “hot” and promising to help clear his name. At his hearing last week, a dozen or so girls wore T-shirts and stickers bearing his face. Jamieson had this to say on that score: “If you took that picture and you walked into an audience three months before the bombing and you said, ‘Here, this is a cover of Rolling Stone,’ what would people say? They’d say, ‘Ah, a new artist emerges on the national stage and Rolling Stone is doing a cover. What is his name? Well I guess it’s Bomber.’”

Car n Continued from page 1 busts, finding abducted children and more. Attached to police cars, bridges or buildings — and sometimes merely as an app on a police officer’s smartphone — scanners capture images of passing or parked vehicles and pinpoint their locations, uploading that information into police databases.. Over time, it’s unlikely many vehicles in a covered area escape notice. And with some of the information going into regional databases encompassing multiple jurisdictions, it’s becoming easier to build a record of where someone has been and when, over a large area. While the Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that a judge’s approval is needed to use GPS to track a car, networks of plate scanners allow police effectively to track a driver’s location, sometimes several times every day, with few legal restrictions. The ACLU says the scanners are assembling

a “single, high-resolution image of our lives.” “There’s just a fundamental question of whether we’re going to live in a society where these dragnet surveillance systems become routine,” said Catherine Crump, a staff attorney with the organization. The group is proposing that police departments immediately delete any records of cars not linked to any crime. Although less thorough than GPS tracking, plate readers can produce some of the same information, the group says, revealing whether someone is frequenting a bar, joining a protest, getting medical or mental help, being unfaithful to a spouse and much more. In Minneapolis, for example, eight mobile and two fixed cameras captured data on 4.9 million license plates from January to August 2012, the Star Tribune reported. Among those whose movements were recorded: Mayor R.T. Rybak, whose city-owned cars were tracked at 41 locations in a year. A Star Tribune reporter’s vehicle was tracked seven times in a year,

Officer Dennis Vafier, of the Alexandria Police Department, uses a laptop in his squad car to scan vehicle license plates during his patrols, Tuesday in Alexandria, Va. Local police departments across the country have amassed millions of digital records on the location and movements of vehicles with a license plate using automated scanners. Affixed to police cars, bridges or buildings, the scanners capture images of passing or parked vehicles and note their location, dumping that information into police databases. Departments keep the records for weeks or even years.

placing him at a friend’s house three times late at night, other times going to and from work — forming a picture of the dates, times and coordinates of his daily routine. Until the city temporarily classified such data late last year, anyone could ask police for a list of when and where a car had been spotted. As the technology

becomes cheaper and more widespread, even small police agencies are able to deploy more sophisticated surveillance systems. The federal government has been a willing partner, offering grants to help equip departments, in part as a tool against terrorism. Law enforcement officials say the scanners are strikingly efficient. The

state of Maryland told the ACLU that troopers could “maintain a normal patrol stance” while capturing up to 7,000 license plate images in a single eighthour shift. “At a time of fiscal and budget constraints, we need better assistance for law enforcement,” said Harvey Eisenberg, assistant U.S. attorney in Maryland.

Liters of Learning Organization builds school in Guatemala By JOYELL NEVINS Civitas Media

Local resident Treva Wynn, along with her husband Riley, started a charity organization called “William Wynn’s Liters of Learning� after winning an online contest designed to help visionaries create a non-governmental organization. In her submitted video entry, Wynn described her dream of improving education in Guatemala. Almost a year later, Liters has finished building a new school for the village of Llano de San Gaspar. Treva and Riley will be in Ludlow Falls on Saturday to meet their sponsors in person and fundraise enough to pay for a teacher for the school. Although from the Dayton area, the couple had been living in Guatemala for a year and a half prior to the contest, teaching English to primary age children. Treva noticed a link between poverty, violence and lack of education, and wanted to increase the value and importance of schooling for Guatemalan kids. A clear plan formed when she heard about the “Power to Change.� The “Power to Change� contest was hosted by Strivectin and promised $30,000 to the winner to go towards creating their own non-governmental organization. Treva’s video talked about her dream of repairing existing schools, building new “green� schools in the outer lying areas, and leaving a continuing source of funding so the school could stay open. Although the vision started with Guatemala, the Wynns hoped to eventually encompass all of Central America and beyond.

Provided photo Treva Wynn gets ready to build an eco-brick wall in the village of Llano de San Gaspar, Guatemala.

Out of 600 entries, Treva was chosen to be one of 15 finalists. The finalists’ videos stayed on the skincare company’s website for a month. At the end of the month, the video with the most votes was the winner. And on Aug. 7, 2012, Treva found out she was that person. “I think ‘blubbering mess’ would be too kind to describe how I reacted,â€? Treva said in a previous interview. “I literally had tears running down my face as soon as I heard the woman (of Strivectin) say ‘It is our great privilege and honor to tell you‌â€? The check came later that month in one lump sum. “It was one big ol’ check,â€? Treva said. “We deposited the whole dang thing!â€? The check stayed in a U.S. account created for that purpose. In November, Treva was back in the states to meet with a lawyer about

The Enid (Okla.) News & Eagle Zimmerman trial verdict reached because of facts of case, Florida law In an enlightening post on his “Criminal Defense” blog, veteran criminal defense lawyer Brian Tannebaum cut to the chase about “The Embarrassment Of The George Zimmerman Verdict.” He made some excellent points, which we will share in this editorial. The Florida attorney began by stating that Trayvon Martin’s death was a tragedy, and that George Zimmerman didn’t have to shoot him. That said, Tannebaum emphasized that he wasn’t there. “You weren’t there either,” Tannebaum wrote. “You don’t know what happened, exactly. As much as you want to believe you were there and know what happened, exactly, you weren’t, and you don’t. “Not knowing exactly what happened requires a not guilty verdict, no matter how angry or outraged you are.” Tannebaum, who watched the trial and knows lawyers on both sides, wrote that the jury reached its verdict because of the facts and Florida law. The jurors — who heard everything; we didn’t — issued a reasonable verdict on the issue they had to decide: the criminal charge against Zimmerman. Tannebaum argued the state didn’t have a great case, with no witnesses and a confusing tape recording. “George Zimmerman is not guilty because the law says he’s not guilty,” the attorney wrote. “You don’t think it’s right that he killed Trayvon Martin, but that’s not what the law says in Florida where we like guns more than we like people. You have a problem with that, do something to change the law other than complain on social media. I know, you’re busy, you won’t. That’s for others to do.” In closing, Tannebaum criticized broadcast news coverage and suggested better vetting of TV pundits. Also, he urged the uninformed to quit criticizing the verdict and asked to put an end to misguided cries for an appeal. We believe the verdict does not mean an endorsement of Zimmerman as a “good” guy, Martin as a bad guy “deserving” death, or many other non-criminal concerns that have come out in this case. Racism still exists in our country. Teenagers say and do stupid things and sometimes criminal things. Adults sometimes say and do stupid things, too. But, Zimmerman did not murder Martin, so says the jury. Fergus Falls (Minn.) Journal Tea party reveals its politics Those who thought the Tea Party would do good things for rural areas in the United States — where most of the Tea Party Republicans’ constituents live — should look at the recent failure of the Farm Bill as evidence to the contrary. The latest farm bill passed by the House separates the funding for food stamps from other farm programs. The fact is, the political ideologies of extremist Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives has corrupted what is typically a bipartisan bill, making it impossible for Democrats — including traditional moderate Rep. Collin Peterson — to vote for. And while such an idea may make sense to House Republicans, the fact is, if the bill is so unappealing to the Democratic Senate and President that will never pass, then there’s no point in passing it. There’s no question that many in our country need food stamps to survive. There’s also no question that farmers need a safety net program to compete with farmers in other parts of the world, and to survive if hard times fall on them. By corrupting what may be the most bipartisan issue Congress deals with, Tea Party members have shown they are far more interested in promoting their conservative ideology than getting anything done.

My daughter is becoming the child I always wanted Troy Daily News Executive Editor Nine years ago, the doctor gave me what I deemed the worst news possible. “Congratulations,” he said. “It’s a girl.” At least that’s what he said. What I really heard was, “Congratulations, Mr. Fong, you had better resign yourself to a lifetime of heartache and sorrow.” When we first found out Michelle was pregnant, I immediately told everyone I didn’t care whether we would be having a boy or a girl. Which, in the grand history of lies, pretty much ranked up there with, “The check is in the mail.” Deep down, I didn’t want a girl. I didn’t want someone who was going to be heartbroken every time a boy said something mean to her. I didn’t want to have to keep beating up boys who said things that were mean to hear. I didn’t want to have tea parties. I didn’t want to have to talk about “lady problems.” (And by “lady problems,” I mean “matching the proper shirt with the proper skirt). I wanted a boy.

AP Photo This July 20, 2012 file photo shows police outside of the Century 16 movie theatre where suspect James Holmes killed 12 people and wounded 70 during the screening of a Batman movie. Eight months later, Colorado became the only state outside the Democratic partyճ coastal bases to pass sweeping gun control laws.

Year after Colorado theater attack, gun debate rages DENVER (AP) — The last time Colorado enacted gun control measures was in the wake of the 1999 Columbine High School shooting, and once the laws were on the books there was little acrimony. The state’s latest batch of gun control laws — coming after a gunman’s deadly rampage at a suburban Denver movie theater a year ago — has sparked a struggle over guns that shows little signs of fading. Gun rights advocates are trying to recall two state senators who backed the package, and dozens of GOP county sheriffs are suing to overturn it. “This is going to remain a political hot potato for Democrats for many, many months,” said gun-rights activist Ari Armstrong. Ironically, in the months after the gunman’s shooting spree left 12 people dead and injured 70 others, there was little public discussion of gun control here. The shooting at a midnight showing of the Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises” occurred in a key swing county in one of the most hotly-contested battleground states in last year’s presidential election. But President Barack Obama, seeking re-elec-

ing Coloradans would be more receptive to them. They weren’t. “There was a sense of political fear,” recalled state Rep. Rhonda Fields, who became a legislator after her son and his girlfriend were shot to death in 2005 to stop him from testifying at a murder trial. In a television interview days after the shooting, Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper appeared to cast doubt on the effectiveness of new gun control laws. Despite a push by gun control groups and some relatives of those slain in Aurora, moderators at the presidential debates didn’t bring up the topic. Craig Hughes, a top adviser to Obama’s Colorado campaign, said it felt inappropriate to raise the issue while emotions were so raw. “The right course here was to not politicize it,” he said. Hickenlooper said he had quiet conversations around the state after that and was struck by wide support for universal background checks. In N o v e m b e r, Democrats won both the state House and Senate as Colorado helped re-elect Obama. And on Dec. 12, Hickenlooper declared that “the time is right” to talk about gun control.

House GOP presses delay in health care law

consumer rebate of about $100. Carney also highlighted reports that some states are already anticipating lower premiums under the Affordable Care Act. “Competition and transparency in the marketplaces, plus the hard effort by those committed to making the law work, are leading to affordable, new and better choices for families,” Carney said. Earlier this month, Republicans seized on the administration’s abrupt decision to delay for one year, until after the 2014 elections, the requirement that businesses with 50 or more employees provide health coverage for their workers or pay a penalty.

Republicans insisted that the president couldn’t unilaterally decide to enforce only portions of the law. They planned votes on one bill that would essentially codify the administration’s plan as well as a second bill that provides a similar grace period for individual Americans. 40294267

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans pressed ahead Wednesday on delaying key components of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law, emboldened by the administration’s concession that requiring companies to provide coverage for their workers next year may be too complicated. The House has scheduled votes later Wednesday to delay the law’s individual and employer mandates, the 38th time the GOP majority has tried to eliminate, defund or scale back the program since Republicans took control of the House in January 2011.

tion, did not bring up gun control in a state that cherishes its western frontier image. Neither did most Colorado Democrats. It wasn’t until December’s shooting at a Connecticut elementary school left 20 firstgraders and six adults dead that gun control rose in prominence. By March, Colorado became the only state outside the Democratic Party’s coastal bases to pass sweeping gun control measures, including universal background checks and a ban on high-capacity magazines. After the Columbine attack, voters closed a loophole that allowed buyers of firearms at gun shows to evade background checks. In the wake of the Aurora massacre, the prospects for more gun control in this libertarian-minded state seemed shaky at best. Soon after police say a former neuroscience graduate student named James Holmes, armed with a rifle and a high-capacity magazine able to fire 100 bullets, wreaked his carnage, the Democratic lawmaker whose district is home to the Century 16 movie theater where the shooting took place began drafting gun control bills, hop-

Cuba arms shipment explanation troubling HAVANA (AP) — North Korea on Wednesday repeated Cuba’s assertion that the antiquated weapons systems found on a cargo ship in Panama were headed to the Asian county for repair. But while the explanation is potentially credible, it leaves troubling questions unresolved, international arms experts say. Acting on intelligence it hasn’t publicly described, Panama seized the rusting, 34-year-old North Korean freighter Chong Chon Gang on July 11 as it headed toward the Caribbean entrance of the Panama Canal on its way to the Pacific and its final destination of North Korea. Hidden under about 240,000 white sacks of raw brown Cuban sugar, Panamanian officials found shipping containers with parts of a radar system for a surfaceto-air missile defense system, an apparent violation of U.N. sanctions that bar North Korea from importing sophisticated weapons or missiles. The North Korean Foreign Ministry commented on

AP Photo Panamanian workers stand atop sacks of sugar inside a container of a North Korean-flagged ship at the Manzanillo International container terminal on the coast of Colon City, Panama, Tuesday. The North Korean ship carrying weapons system parts buried under sacks of sugar was seized as it tried to cross the Panama Canal on its way from Cuba to its home country, which is under a United Nations arms embargo, Panamanian officials said Tuesday.

the seizure for the first time Wednesday, saying: “This cargo is nothing but aging weapons which (North Korea) are to send back to Cuba after overhauling them according to a legitimate contract.” A Foreign Ministry spokesman, who was not named by the official Korean Central

News Agency, said “the Panamanian investigation authorities rashly attacked and detained the captain and crewmen of the ship on the plea of ‘drug investigation’ and searched its cargo but did not discover any drug.” “The Panamanian authorities should take a step to let

the apprehended crewmen and ship leave without delay,” the dispatch added. Thirty-five North Korean nationals were arrested after resisting police efforts to intercept the ship in Panamanian waters, according to the Central American country’s government. The captain

had a heart attack and also tried to commit suicide, said Panamanian President Ricardo Martinelli, who announced the discovery via radio Monday night. Nearly 24 hours after Panama announced the find and said it would continue searching the ship for more contraband, Cuba acknowledged late Tuesday that the ship’s cargo included 240 metric tons of “obsolete defensive weapons”: two Volga and Pechora anti-aircraft missile systems, nine missiles “in parts and spares,” two Mig-21 Bis and 15 engines for those airplanes. The equipment was meant to be repaired in North Korea and returned to Cuba, the Cuban government said. North Korea has a robust capability to repair and upgrade Soviet-era military equipment, and the economically struggling, isolated nation has a track record of trading technical help for commodities such as sugar, experts said. At the same time, North Korea is known to be seeking to evade sanctions and get spare parts for its own weapons systems, particularly Mig jet fighters. That raises the possibility that in lieu of cash, Cuba was paying for the repairs with a mix of sugar and jet equipment, experts said. “We think it is credible that they could be sending some of these systems for repair and upgrade work,” said Neil Ashdown, an analyst for IHS Jane’s Intelligence. “But equally there is stuff in that shipment that could be used in North Korea and was not going back.” Britain’s U.N. Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant said Wednesday that “any weapons transfers, for whatever reason, to North Korea would be a violation of the sanctions regime and therefore there are questions to be answered.” “If it is confirmed that the vessel was carrying arms and or related material and the shipment was part of a purchase or sale to or from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, then that would indeed be a breach of the sanctions regime relating to that country,” said U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky. “But … it’s up to the sanctions committee of the Security Council to pronounce itself on that matter.” U.N. diplomats speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue said that if Cuba wanted to send the weapons for repairs and have them returned, they would need to get a waiver in advance from the Security Council committee monitoring sanctions against North Korea. In 2010, the South African navy intercepted a shipment of upgraded tank engines that were being transported from North Korea to Congo-Brazzaville, said Hugh Griffiths, arms trafficking expert at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.

“The North Koreans have a track record of actually doing this,” he said. “Upgrading, servicing and repairing, that’s what the North Koreans do.” He said the deals are part of a barter trade, where North Korea upgrades military equipment in return for commodities, like Cuban sugar or, in another documented example, Burmese rice. “It looks like it was definitely a violation of the U.N. sanctions, and this is why there was an effort to camouflage and conceal it,” Griffiths said. “It is military equipment prohibited under U.N. sanctions so whether payment is made in the form of barter trade or foreign currency it still constitutes a violation.” Soviet-built air-defense missiles, radar systems and MiG21 fighter jets are complex enough to periodically require a factory repair in addition to regular maintenance. North Korea has developed arms industries producing missiles and other weapons derived from old Soviet designs and has found customers in countries that can’t afford more expensive modern arms. Cuba wouldn’t be unique in sending its weapons for repairs abroad. In June 2012, a Russian-operated ship carrying three Soviet-built Syrian helicopters after repairs in Russia was forced to turn back after a British insurer removed its coverage. Alongside the repair and upgrade business for countries with less advanced militaries, North Korea also has a long history of aggressively buying, marketing and selling entire weapons systems around the world, especially in developing countries in the Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia. Much of that business was in sales of short- and mediumrange missiles, but the market for full missile systems is thought to have dried up in recent years. That’s partly because of international pressure and sanctions banning weapons exports following North Korea’s three nuclear tests conducted since 2006 and a string of long-range rocket launches. Sales may have also suffered because of the poorquality, Soviet-type weaponry that Pyongyang has traditionally produced. Panamanian authorities said it might take a week to search the ship, since they so far had only examined two of its five container sections. They have requested help from United Nations inspectors, along with Colombia and Britain, said Javier Carballo, Panama’s top narcotics prosecutor. Photos of the ship’s cargo show a green tube that appears to be a horizontal antenna for the SNR-75 “Fan Song” radar, which is used to guide missiles fired by the SA-2 air-defense system found in former Warsaw Pact and Soviet-allied nations, Ashdown said.

Daniels denies trying to censor Indiana universities INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Purdue University President Mitch Daniels said Wednesday he never tried to quash academic freedom while serving as Indiana’s governor and criticized an Associated Press report citing emails in which he opposed use of a book by historian and anti-war activist Howard Zinn. Emails published Tuesday by the AP show Daniels tried to ensure Zinn’s book was not used in Indiana’s K-12 and college classrooms and that he worked to “disqualify the propaganda” he said was being taught to teachers in training at Indiana’s colleges. Daniels on Wednesday told reporters at Purdue that the story was “unfair and erroneous.” He had previously told the AP he was only referring to Zinn’s book appearing in K-12 classrooms, and he did not immediately reply to questions from the AP on Wednesday about what he found to be in error. Daniels’ 2010 emails, obtained by the AP through a public records request, show that Daniels request-

ed Zinn’s writings be banned from classrooms and asked for a “cleanup” of college courses during his second term as governor. In another exchange, the Republican talks about cutting funding for a program run by a local university professor who was one of his sharpest critics. “This terrible antiAmerican academic has finally passed away,” Daniels wrote, referring to Zinn, in a rapid exchange of emails between top state education officials on Feb. 9, 2010. “The obits and commentaries mentioned his book, ‘A People’s History of the United States,’ is the ‘textbook of choice in high schools and colleges around the country.’ It is a truly execrable, anti-factual piece of disinformation that misstates American history on every page. “Can someone assure me that it is not in use anywhere in Indiana? If it is, how do we get rid of it before more young people are force-fed a totally false version of our history?” His education adviser quickly responded by noting the book was

being used at Indiana University in a course for teachers. Daniels wrote back: “This crap should not be accepted for any credit by the state. … Which board has jurisdiction over what counts and what doesn’t?” David Shane, a top fundraiser and state school board member, replied with a strategy directing Indiana’s higher education commissioner and another education official to review university courses state-

wide. Daniels signed off on the plan, writing: “Disqualify propaganda and highlight (if there is any) the more useful offerings. Don’t the ed schools have at least some substantive PD (professional development) courseware to upgrade knowledge of math, science, etc.” The discovery of the emails has sparked widespread reaction in higher education circles nationwide, with many expressing alarm about whether

a university president would try to censor teachings. “It is ultimately bad for democracy. No head of state should engage in any form of censorship,” said Gerardo Gonzalez, dean of the Indiana University College of Education. But others doubted it would have much impact on Daniels beyond the immediate discomfort because the emails were written long before he took over at Purdue. He was named the university’s president in January after being unanimously selected by the board of trustees, most of whose members he appointed while governor. Daniels told the AP in an email Tuesday that it was “encouraging” to find Zinn’s book wasn’t being used in K-12 classrooms but that he never sought to censor universities. He said at his news conference Wednesday that if Zinn had tenure at Purdue, “I would defend him and his rights not to be dismissed for the nature of his work.”

COLUMBUS (AP) — The search for Ohio State University’s next president will formally begin Friday with the first meeting of a search committee that includes trustees, faculty and students. The next leader succeeds Gordon Gee (ghee), who retired July 1 after apologizing for earlier remarks jabbing Notre Dame, Roman Catholics and Southeastern Conference schools. Ohio State says the search committee will be led by trustee Jeffrey Wadsworth, CEO of Columbus-based research giant Battelle Memorial Institute. The panel includes five trustees who will make a recommendation to the larger board. A subcommittee of faculty, administrators and student leaders will offer input, and an executive search firm is expected to have a role in the process. A planned discussion of characteristics of a modern university leader will coincide with the board’s meeting in late August.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Thursday, July 18, the 199th day of 2013. There are 166 days left in the year. On this date: In A.D. 64, the Great Fire of Rome began. In 1536, the English Parliament passed an act declaring the authority of the pope void in England. In 1792, American naval hero John Paul Jones died in Paris at age 45. In 1872, Britain enacted voting by secret ballot. In 1913, comedian Red Skelton was born in Vincennes, Ind. In 1932, the United States and Canada signed a treaty to develop the St. Lawrence Seaway. In 1940, the Democratic National Convention at Chicago Stadium nominated President Franklin D. Roosevelt for an unprecedented third term in office. In 1947, President Harry S. Truman signed a Presidential Succession Act, which placed the speaker of the House and the Senate president pro tempore next in the line of succession after the vice president. In 1969, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., left a party on Chappaquiddick Island near Martha’s Vineyard with Mary Jo Kopechne (koh-PEHK’-nee), 28; some time later, Kennedy’s car went off a bridge into the water. (Kennedy was able to escape, but Kopechne drowned.) In 1976, at the Montreal Olympics, Romanian gymnast Nadia Comaneci received the first-ever perfect score of 10 with her routine on uneven parallel bars. (Comaneci would go on to receive six more 10s at Montreal.) In 1984, gunman James Huberty opened fire at a McDonald’s fast food restaurant in San Ysidro (ee-SEE’-droh), Calif., killing 21 people before being shot dead by police. Walter F. Mondale won the Democratic presidential nomination in San Francisco. In 1988, Texas Treasurer Ann Richards, delivering the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta, skewered presumed Republican nominee George H.W.

Pipe repair cuts water use for 200K near DC OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — Hundreds of thousands of residents of suburban Washington are avoiding running their faucets, watering their lawns and flushing toilets during a scorching heat wave because of urgent repairs to a failing water main. More than 200,000 Prince George’s County residents and businesses were warned Monday night about the unexpected repairs after one of the pipe’s internal sensors sent signals that it needs to be fixed. The repairs should head off a potentially disastrous failure. Mandatory water restrictions began late Tuesday in several communities in an area that includes the military base that is home to Air Force One and a major convention center. Officials had initially warned that faucets could run completely dry for several days but later said that they’d been able to divert water to the area to keep the pipes flowing. The restrictions come at a particularly hot time, with temperatures expected to reach the mid-90s over the next few days. Residents have been told to limit use of dishwashers, washing machines and bathing. Officials are providing water at three schools in affected areas and opening reception centers where people can shower, use the bathroom and get drinking water. “If we continue to conserve we’re confident that the system will remain full while we complete the repairs on the pipe and return it to service,” said Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission General Manager Jerry N. Johnson on Wednesday afternoon. Johnson said that a “major disaster” had been averted. Still, the signs of water conservation were evident in the area. On Wednesday, businesses including car washes, daycare centers and fast-food restaurants were shut down before noon. At a Shoppers Food Warehouse just off the Capital Beltway in Oxon Hill, assistant

AP Photo Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission workers remove dirt from around a defective 4-1/2 water main in District Heights, Md., Wednesday. Officials say at least 200,000 residents could temporarily be without water so that the pipe can be replaced.

store director Timothy Marshall was restocking shelves with hundreds of one-gallon jugs of Deer Park water. “I’ve got plenty of water for all of Prince George’s County,” said Marshall, who said the early warning about the shutdown allowed the store to order more water than usual. “I hope I don’t get stuck with it all. So far, so good.” Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission spokesman I.J. Hudson said the 4-½-foot water main pipe that needs to be repaired was put in around 1965. Officials first got alerts Friday from a warning system that the pipe was failing. There were additional warnings over the weekend and Monday. County officials urged residents to stock up on water before the work began. In response, Joint Base Andrews, which is home to Air Force One and has 16,000 residents and workers, shut down all but the most crit-

ical operations. A base clinic was accepting only emergency patients, and routine appointments had been cancelled. The base’s commander, Col. William Knight, said Wednesday that movable water tanks had been placed around the base, but he said that air conditioning could be affected because that system needs water to work. County officials worked to make the most of the advance warning before the massive outage, said county spokesman Scott Peterson. Fire officials were placing tankers in the affected area. “One blessing is that usually there is a break, and you are dealing with the aftermath. This is a different situation,” Peterson said. “Because of new technology we were able to get out with 24-hour notice, and people were able to prepare for this. As frustrating as the situation is, most of the time you don’t even get 24 hours.”

Heat blankets much of U.S. as summer sizzles NEW YORK (AP) — Weather forecasters warned of potentially dangerous temperatures from Minnesota to Massachusetts on Wednesday, as the nation’s largest heat wave of the summer stretched out and stagnated, with relief in many places still days away. Most states in the U.S. were expected to have some areas where the temperature would hit 90 degrees or more, according to the National Weather Service. Humid air just made it all feel worse, with heat indexes in some places over 100. Parts of 19 states were under weather advisories. In New York City, where it was 95 degrees, sidewalk food vendor Ahmad Qayumi said that by 11 a.m., the cramped space inside his steel-walled cart got so hot, he had to turn off his grill and coffee machine. “It was just too hot. I couldn’t breathe,” he said, turning away a customer who asked for a hamburger. “Just cold drinks,” he said. Amid the heat, officials in Washington D.C.’s Maryland suburbs worked to keep a failing water main from cutting off hundreds of thousands of people, just when they needed it most. People in

Prince George’s County were asked not to run their faucets, water their lawns or flush toilets to keep the water system from emptying during emergency repairs. Firefighters in southern California faced brutally hot — but dangerously dry — conditions as they battled a wildfire outside Palm Springs. Temperatures could go as high as 105 and humidity could go as low as 1 percent by the afternoon, said Tina Rose, a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. The fire has already consumed seven homes. At the World Trade Center reconstruction site in New York City, workers building a rail hub dripped under their hardhats, thick gloves and heavy-duty boots. Some wore towels around their necks to wipe away the sweat. “We’re drinking a lot of water, down under by the tracks, in and out of the sun all day — very hot,” said carpenter Elizabeth Fontanez, of the Bronx, who labored with 20 pounds of tools and safety equipment strapped to her waist. Since the heat wave began, she said she has been changing shirts several times during her shifts.

Detroit says it’s settled with some creditors DETROIT (AP) — Detroit has reached an “important settlement” with some creditors as it negotiates ways to get rid of billions of dollars of debt, according to court documents filed Monday, though details of the agreement haven’t been released. The disclosure was made in a lawsuit involving the city, an insurance company and a bank. The document doesn’t reveal any details but said Detroit no longer needs a restraining order in the case, which involves a dispute over taxes and casino revenue. “The city reached in principle an important settlement with certain of its creditors late Friday afternoon, which we understand will be executed (Monday),” attorney Deborah Kovsky-Apap said in the court filing. Bill Nowling, spokesman for state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr, said the settlement involves swap agreements. Detroit has pledged money from casino revenue as collateral to avoid defaulting on past pension debt payments. The swaps are backed by insurer Syncora Guarantee Inc., which acts as a trustee and makes payments from casino revenue to parties involved in the swaps. The settlement referred to in Monday’s court filing primarily involves Bank of America, Merrill Lynch and some other entities, Nowling said. “We have a deal in principle with the swap counterparties, but it’s not finalized yet,” said Nowling, who added that details could not be released until the deal is signed.

Johnny be good: HOOVER, Ala. (AP) — Johnny Manziel strode into Southeastern Conference Media Days and was swarmed by hundreds of reporters and dozens of television cameras. He shook some hands and the cameras flashed as he settled into his seat, the star of the SEC’s latest must-see TV show. If the Texas A&M quarterback was troubled by all the attention, he didn’t show it. Dressed in a dark blue suit, checkered shirt and striped tie, Manziel answered every question thrown his way during the 30-minute Q&A, some were even about football. He said he largely enjoys the spotlight that comes with winning

the Heisman Trophy — even if it sometimes includes unsavory headlines. “This is just another day,” Johnny Football said with a grin. The 20-year-old sophomore and face of college football spent most of his three-hour stay at the Wynfrey Hotel, bouncing from one interview session to another. He mostly talked about an eventful offseason that has frequently made him a trending topic. “I don’t feel like I’ve done anything that’s catastrophic,” Manziel said. “Of course, I’ve made my mistakes. It’s time to grow up.” • See JOHNNY on page 14

Big Ten, Lions team for Detroit Bowl By the Associated Press

The Big Ten and the Detroit Lions have announced a six-year agreement to play a bowl game at Ford Field, and a person familiar with the situation says the Atlantic Coast Conference will provide the opponent. The new bowl will start in the 2014 season and it has not been named or sponsored. The person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press the game will be a matchup of Big Ten and ACC teams. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement was to come later. first reported the ACC would be part of the new Detroit Bowl.

Prepping for British Open unlike any other major

Froome picks up 3rd stage victory at Tour Even when he expects to lose, Tour de France champion-in-the-making Chris Froome cannot help but win. He’s that strong and he’s making it look easy. On a day when the British rider was planning to save some energy for upcoming mountains, Froome still brushed aside the field and took his third stage win of this 100th Tour. See page 14

GULLANE, Scotland (AP) — The practice round schedule posted each day at Muirfield is not the only way to determine how players are getting ready for the British Open. Johnson Wagner’s name was on the tee sheet at St. Andrews over the weekend. Geoff Ogilvy could be found hundreds of miles away on links courses like Turnberry, Royal Troon and Western Gailes. Justin Rose was at North Berwick. So were Bubba Watson and Luke Donald, who got in plenty of golf along the Firth of Forth the week before the British Open. It’s not unusual for players to take off from their regular tours a week before a

major to prepare. What’s different about the British Open — isn’t everything? — is that preparations aren’t limited to the course they will be playing. “You can prepare for the U.S. Open on the range,” Ogilvy said Wednesday. “But you can only prepare for The Open on the course. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be the course you’re playing. The seaside courses here, they’re the only courses with turf like this, with sand like this. There’s something different about the seaside wind in Scotland. … You can fly to Shanghai or Abu Dhabi and work on what you need at home. But you can’t work on what you need at home until you get here.”

Tiger Woods, a three-time Open champion, arrived Sunday morning and has played nine holes a day. There was a time he would leave home a week early and head to Ireland with Mark O’Meara and David Duval, both former Open champions, and play the links courses there. Woods loves to recall his first experience with links golf in 1995 as the U.S. Amateur champion. He played the Scottish Open at Carnoustie, and then drove down the North Sea shoreline to St. Andrews for the British Open. “I absolutely fell in love with it, to be • See BRITISH on page 14

Field ready to go low at LPGA Marathon SYLVANIA (AP) — Gone is the Jamie Farr name atop the marquee. Even though it’s now the Marathon Classic for the first time in its 28 years — and the actor who played the cross-dressing Corporal Klinger from M*A*S*H has stepped into the background — a major drawing card for some of the LPGA’s finest players remains unchanged. “When I first came here to Highland Meadows, I thought this was a tough golf course,” Inbee Park said. “But it seemed like everybody was scoring so low out here that I couldn’t keep up with them.” When the No. 1 player in the world — and winner of the first three women’s major professional championships this year — thinks she’s being lapped by so many birdie-happy adversaries, that’s saying something. The course in suburban Toledo, not far from the Michigan-Ohio state line, has been the site of some of the best rounds in LPGA Tour history. A 20-year-old rookie named Se Ri

Pak put up a 61 in 1998 while winning her first of a record five titles at the course. Paula Creamer had a 60 in the first round five years ago to cruise to a victory. And rookie So Yeon Ryu shot a final-round 62 to come off the pace to win last year. Over the last six years, the winners are a combined 103-under par. “It’s a golf course that once you feel comfortable, you do play very well out here,” said Creamer, who followed up her career-low 11-under 60 with a hohum 65 and then coasted to a two-shot victory. The galleries have become used to players going low. Maybe too used to it. Locked in a four-way, all-South Korean tie for first heading into the final round a year ago, Ryu pulled away with a string of birdies. “After I made six birdies in a row, the next hole I made par and the spectators’ faces were like, ‘What’s the problem with her? Why did she have a par?’” Ryu said with a smile. Park recognizes that this might not

be exactly the track to fit her game. She believes she is at her best on courses where par is a good score, not where fans are disappointed by one. “I consider myself a very good player in major championships where the challenges come into play,” she said. “Some people like very-low-scoring golf courses and some like tough golf courses.” She’s in the latter camp. Still, she has improved every year she’s played in Northwestern Ohio going from a missed cut to a tie for 25th, to sixth to a thirdplace finish last year. This year’s field includes seven of the top 10 and 17 of the top 25 on the LPGA money list, including Yani Tseng, Na Yeon Choi and Angela Stanford. Also on hand are teenage phenoms Lexi Thompson and amateur Lydia Ko. The tournament also serves as one of the last chances to pick up precious points before the Solheim Cup teams are announced after the Women’s British Open at St. Andrew’s on Aug. 1-4. The Solheim will be played Aug. 15-18 at Colorado Golf Club.

Froome wins again British rider picks up 3rd stage victory

CHORGES, France (AP) — Even when he expects to lose, Tour de France champion-in-the-making Chris Froome cannot help but win. He’s that strong and he’s making it look easy. On a day when the British rider was planning to save some energy for upcoming mountains, Froome still brushed aside the field and took his third stage win of this 100th Tour. Alberto Contador, Froome’s Spanish rival still trying to make a fight of this one-sided battle, gave his all in Wednesday’s Alpine time trial. His face contorted in a grimace of effort as he sprinted out of the saddle to the line, while spectators whipped up a thunderclap of noise by banging their fists on the barriers. Froome, having set off behind Contador, sped in a few moments later. He, too, rode hard but looked more comfortable with his easy-on-the-eye pedaling style, perched on his saddle, legs pumping underneath him like pistons in an ocean liner’s engine room. Contador shook his head and shrugged his shoulders when television flashed that Froome beat his time by 9 seconds. This was another opportunity lost for Contador to make victory for Froome in Paris on Sunday at least feel less inevitable. “Froome is in impressive shape,” was the understated assessment of the 2007 and ‘09 winner who was stripped of his 2010 victory for a failed doping test. The last Tour champion — now ex-champion — to carry as many stage wins as Froome to Paris was Lance Armstrong. That was in 2004, when Armstrong won five stages and declared he’d be giving “no gifts” to his rivals. That is all just a bad memory now. This Tour is the first since the serial doper’s name was erased last year from the race’s honor roll, literally crossed out in the official history book. Froome swears that won’t happen with him. He has

AP PHOTO Stage winner Christopher Froome of Britain, wearing the overall leader’s yellow jersey, passes lake Serre-Poncon Wednesday during the seventeenth stage of the Tour de France cycling race an individual time trial over 32 kilometers (20 miles) with start in Embrun and finish in Chorges, France.

repeatedly said when asked at this Tour that he is riding clean — an assurance that only has limited value in the poisonous atmosphere of doubt that is a legacy of the Armstrong years and the American’s confession to Oprah Winfrey this January that he cheated for all seven of his Tour wins, from 19992007. “The problem today is that we are traumatized by the past,” Stephane Heulot, manager of the French Sojasun team, said in an interview. “We’ve seen too many stories like this. We’ve seen too many riders swearing on the heads of their kids, their grandmothers, their mothers that they’re completely clean and then — bam! — 15 years, 10 years, five years later we’re told other things. Someone’s word no longer means anything. We can’t rely on that.” A union that represents about 600 professional riders from seven European nations supported Froome on Wednesday against what it called “unjustified allegations of doping.” “It’s not fair to blame someone without evidence against him,” Gianni Bugno, president of the Association of Professional Riders, said in a statement. “We demand more respect for Chris and for all the riders.” In four days, as long as he gets through the Alps, Froome will be able to sip champagne in the saddle on the final ride to the Champs-

Elysees, unusually staged in the evening this year. That would make it two victories in a row for Britain and for Team Sky, after Bradley Wiggins’ win last year. With wins in the Pyrenees and on Mont Ventoux, Froome has shown excellence going uphill. It would be a big surprise if he wilted on the three days of Alpine climbs that start on Thursday with a double ascent to the ski station of L’Alpe d’Huez, with its 21 hairpins bends to the top. Done twice, that’s 42 bends packed with spectators to be negotiated. It promises to be frenzied and spectacular — a dramatic crescendo for what already has been a highlight-rich Tour. But there are questions about how comfortable Froome is speeding downhill. He has voiced concern about a hairy descent without safety barriers that the pack tackles between the first and second ascents to L’Alpe d’Huez. He appealed to race organizers to cancel the Col de Sarenne descent and make the pack ride just once to L’Alpe d’Huez if it rains on Thursday. “Just in terms of the safety of the riders, I think that has to come first,” Froome said. That eventuality was ruled out by Jean-Francois Pescheux, the event director. “This is the Tour de France. Rain hasn’t ever stopped the Tour de France. It would have to really be

a natural catastrophe that blocked the road or something like that,” he told The Associated Press. “Rain isn’t the enemy of the cyclist — it’s part of the sport!” It was certainly part of Wednesday’s time trial, but not as much as initially feared. While it did rain on parts of the course, the forecast storms hit only after Stage 17 finished. That was a relief because the route went up two climbs in the mountains above the manmade Serre-Poncon lake. The twisting descents could have been terribly treacherous if wetter. Froome covered the 32 kilometers (20 miles) in 51 minutes, 33.66 seconds. “I went into today thinking: ‘OK, I’m going to give this a really good shot, but I’m not going to empty myself,” Froome said. “I really expected to lose at least 30 seconds to a minute to some of the best riders.” Contador’s gutsy ride bumped him up from third to second in the overall standings, although he is more than four minutes back from Froome. “When you are second, it’s easier to get to first place,” Contador said hopefully. “But it’s true that he is very strong.” Bauke Mollema dropped from second to fourth overall. The Dutch rider went too fast into a right-hand bend, slapped into the barriers and briefly came to a stop.

Many will also be watching St. Andrew’s to see if Park can collect a fourth consecutive major. Like most events on every tour, this week’s tournament has had several sponsor changes over the years. But Farr’s name was always prominent. After last year, when the 89-year-old actor heard that the oil company from nearby Findlay, Ohio, was interested, he discreetly left the stage. Stacy Lewis, the No. 2-ranked player in the world and who is sponsored by Marathon, helped close the deal. Born in Toledo and usually trailed by a large group of friends and family wearing “Lew Crew” T-shirts, Lewis was participating in a Marathon corporate outing a year ago when the company’s CEO, Gary Heminger, surprised her by asking, “Why should I sponsor an LPGA tournament?” “I must have given him a pretty good response because we’re at this point here today,” she said. Now if she can just figure out how to out-birdie everybody else in the field.

third-base dugout rail and applauded, just like the fans. So did his NL opponents on the first-base side. With no other players in fair territory, he finally started tossing his warmup pitches to catcher Salvador Perez. Like Ted Williams at Boston’s Fenway Park in 1999 and Cal Ripken Jr. at Seattle’s Safeco Field two years later, one man transcended all the rest of the gathered talent. “You’re supposed to know your team is behind you,” Rivera said. “I didn’t know what to do. Just keep throwing the ball, I guess, because it was so weird.” And then, after a 90-second standing ovation, eight AL position players came on the field. Normalcy resumed. Rivera threw 16 pitches — all cutters — and retired Jean Segura, Allen Craig and Carlos Gomez, sending the side down in order the way he has so many times before. “He still can pitch for three or four more years. He’s the best,” Gomez explained. “After I got to the dugout, I say I’m going to be history because I’m the last guy Mariano got out in the All-Star game.” Rivera then walked to the dugout to another standing ovation and was given a hug by Detroit ace Justin Verlander. “It’s kind of surreal for me,” Verlander said. “I just wanted to give him the respect and the respect that he deserved, I just happened to be standing out there and I was the first one he came to. That’s something that I will never forget.” AL manager Jim Leyland decided to pitch Rivera in the eighth instead of the ninth, worried that if the NL somehow rallied Rivera might not get into the game. “I just couldn’t take any chance,” Leyland said. “You know, I’m probably not the most popular manager in baseball. I wanted to make sure I got out of here alive.”

able to dink a 5-iron from 150 yards and bump it on the ground, or vice versa — have 260 out and hit a 4-iron and it bounces over the green. That, to me, is pretty neat. Because we play everywhere around the world — an airborne game where you have to hit the ball straight up in the air and make it stop. Here it’s different. A draw will go one distance, a fade will go another, and they’re so dramatic. And I just absolutely love it.” True, adjusting to links golf can just as easily take place at Muirfield, where the British Open starts Thursday. Defending champion Ernie Els came down from Castle Stuart and has stayed at Muirfield, wrapping up his final practice round Wednesday just after 6 p.m. But there are no tricks at Muirfield. There are hardly any blind shots. Most of the bunkers are in plain view from the tee. That’s one of the reasons that Muirfield is a favorite of so many players, who use words like “fair” and “honest test,” which aren’t always heard on other links courses. “I think of all the Open venues, it’s probably one of the least quirky ones,” Donald said Wednesday. “It’s quite straightforward. Obviously with the weather conditions, it’s playing firm and fast. It’s going to be about controlling your golf ball this week. And the weather looks good. The course is set up just the way the R&A would like it. It’s bouncy. It’s a little bit of a breeze out there. Firm conditions are a good protector of the golf course, and we certainly have that this week.” The forecast is dry for the week, with perhaps some mist on the weekend. Even though officials had the course just the way they wanted it early in the week, they have turned on a few sprinklers in the evening to keep it from getting overcooked. “I think it’s no exaggeration to say that in my time at the R&A with direct involvement in The Open Championship, which goes back to 2000, factors have combined this year to make this the best course set up we’ve ever had in that period,” R&A chief executive Peter Dawson said. “The course is just as we want it. It’s hard. It’s fast. It’s in wonderful condition. The rough is just right. I think the players are enjoying it.”

The most recent misstep came last weekend at the Manning Passing Academy. Manziel was one of many college quarterback counselors at the camp for high school prospects run by Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning in Louisiana, but he left before it was over. He says he missed activities because he “overslept,” and his absence had nothing to do with being out the night before. “I was not asked to leave. It was a mutual decision,” Manziel said. He said that while there were social events every night with the Mannings, he did not miss his meetings because of too much partying. “The speculation of me being too hung over and that’s the reason I missed the meetings is absolutely incorrect,” he said. Manziel said he fell asleep without set-

ting his alarm and his phone died during the night. He said he was rooming with Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, but that McCarron didn’t wake him up. “I’m definitely not going to pin it on him,” Manziel said. “It’s my fault — 115, 120 percent.” He said he was disappointed he missed camp activities, but that there were “no hard feelings” between him and the Mannings. He said he’s already been invited back to next summer’s camp and looks forward to attending. The early exit from the Manning camp is just part of Manziel’s offseason in the public eye. — He pleaded guilty on Monday to a misdemeanor of not identifying himself to a police officer following a 2012 altercation at a bar near campus in College

Station. — He sent out an update on Twitter in June saying that he “can’t wait to leave” College Station, before quickly deleting the updated. He later apologized. — He also created a minor stir in February when he said he took most of his classes online and didn’t go on campus very much. None of the transgressions were huge, but they combined to keep Johnny Football in the news and raise questions about his character. Every move Manziel made on Wednesday was shadowed by a media throng. At one point, the quarterback said he felt like pop star Justin Bieber. He talked about his friendship with NBA star LeBron James, his upcoming trip to the ESPYs and all the other posi-

tives that comes from his fame. He said his carousing has been at times “blown out of proportion,” though he did acknowledge that he needs to make better decisions because he’s such a public figure. “My offseason, all the stuff’s that’s gone on will have no effect on this season,” Manziel said. “I’m ready to stop. No more talk after this. Let’s play football.” Manziel is the first freshman to win the Heisman and undeniably a unique talent on the field. He led Texas A&M to an 11-2 record, including a 6-2 mark in its first Southeastern Conference season. Second-year coach Kevin Sumlin’s hurry-up offense was a perfect match for Manziel, who finished with 3,706 yards and 26 touchdowns passing and 1,410 yards and 21 touchdowns on the ground.

Olbermann rejoining ESPN to host late-night show BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Keith Olbermann is rejoining ESPN to host a late-night show. Olbermann rose to prominence as a “SportsCenter” anchor from 1992-97 before one of several contentious departures that have marked his career. “Olbermann” will premiere Aug. 26, the network said Wednesday. It will generally air at 11 p.m. ET Monday-Friday on ESPN2, depending on live event coverage on

the channel. The show will include commentary, interviews, panel discussions and highlights. Olbermann said in a statement that “I’m overwhelmed by the chance to begin anew with ESPN.” “I’ve been gone for 16 years and not one day in that time has passed without someone connecting me to the network,” he said. “Our histories are indelibly intertwined and frankly I have long wished that I had the chance to make sure

the totality of that story would be a completely positive one. I’m grateful to friends and bosses — old and new — who have permitted that opportunity to come to pass. I’m not going to waste it.” His last two politically oriented jobs ended poorly. Olbermann quit abruptly in January 2011 after eight years as a prime-time host at MSNBC, and his later tenure at Current TV lasted a year before he was taken off the air and

responded with a lawsuit, settled out of court. Olbermann served as co-host of NBC’s Sunday night NFL pregame show from 2007-09, reuniting with old “SportsCenter” anchor partner Dan Patrick for the last two seasons. He recently added another sports gig, hosting TBS’s Major League Baseball postseason studio show. His new ESPN program will often air opposite “SportsCenter” on the main ESPN network. The

company has found over the years that broadcasting competing programming on its various channels expands its overall audience. And starting next month ESPN will have competition in the 11 p.m. slot from new Olbermann cable channel Fox Sports 1’s nightly highlights and appointment viewing analysis show. for that very reason,” ESPN President John Skipper said. “Keith Skipper called Olbermann brings a blend of editoa “one-of-a-kind person- rial sophistication and ality” in a news release unpredictability — you announcing the hire. can never be sure what “These shows will be you’ll get.”

NCAA to stop putting name, logo on EA video game NEW YORK (AP) — Hang on to NCAA Football 2014, all you video game fans. It will be a collector’s edition. The NCAA said Wednesday it will no longer allow Electronic Arts Inc. to use its logo starting next year. The move ends a lucrative business deal with the gaming industry giant and comes as the NCAA fights a high-profile lawsuit that says the governing body owes billions of dollars to former players for allowing their likenesses to be used for free. The NCAA said it won’t seek a new contract with EA Sports, which manufactures the popular game, beyond the current one that expires in June 2014. However, that won’t stop EA Sports from producing a college football video game depicting powerhouse schools like Alabama, Ohio State and Oregon, and the Redwood City, Calif.-based company made that clear. “EA Sports will continue to develop and publish college football games, but we will no longer include the NCAA names and marks,” said Andrew Wilson, executive vice president. “Our relationship with the Collegiate Licensing Co. is strong and we are already working on a new game for next generation consoles which will launch next year and feature the college teams, conferences and all the innovation fans expect from EA Sports.” The company reported $3.8 billion in net revenue during its last fiscal year and, aside from its NCAA Football franchise, is well known for Madden NFL, FIFA Soccer and other games. EA Sports first began making an NCAA Football game in 1998. Todd Mitchell, senior analyst with New York-based Brean Capital, LLC, said losing the NCAA brand isn’t likely to hurt EA Sports. He estimated NCAA Football accounts for only about 5 percent of EA Sports’ revenue, or about $125 million. “It’s nice to have the brand but it’s more about the characters,” he said. It could not immediately be determined exactly how much of what EA makes from NCAA football goes back to the NCAA and its members in licensing deals. Analyst Colin Sebastian of R.W. Baird said EA Sports likely expected to lose its

partnership with the NCAA. “I’m sure they have thought about this because of this pending litigation and the worst case scenarios,” Baird said by telephone from San Francisco. “I don’t expect it to have a significant impact on their business.” NCAA Football allows participants to play as any major college football team, though unlike in its professional sports games, the names of players are not used. The similarities between the avatars in the game and actual college football players are at the root of a legal fight that could alter the way the NCAA does business in the future. The NCAA is in the midst of a long legal battle that started with a lawsuit filed by former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon after he was shown a video game with an avatar playing for the Bruins that played a lot like him. The lawsuit also names EA and the Collegiate Licensing Company that handles trademark licensing for dozens of schools, the NCAA and various conferences. It has expanded to include several former athletes who claim the NCAA and EA Sports used their names and likenesses without compensation and demand the NCAA find a way to give players a cut of the billions of dollars earned from live broadcasts, memorabilia sales and video games. “We are confident in our legal position regarding the use of our trademarks in video games,” the NCAA said. “But given the current business climate and costs of litigation, we determined participating in this game is not in the best interests of the NCAA. “The NCAA has never licensed the use of current student-athlete names, images or likenesses to EA. The NCAA has no involvement in licenses between EA and former student-athletes,” it said in a statement. Still, the NCAA said its members can seek arrangements with video game manufacturers if they wish. “Member colleges and universities license their own trademarks and other intellectual property for the video game,” the NCAA said. “They will have to independently decide whether to continue those business arrangements in the future.”

DH debate at 40

AL designated hitter still controversial Associated Press

The designated hitter turned 40 this year. Fittingly, it’s having sort of a mid-life crisis. Never before has the imbalance between the American and National Leagues regarding Rule 6.10 been more of a potential problem. The designated hitter rule has been controversial from day one. It’s been criticized and even confusing since it was born. So it’s only natural that Major League Baseball’s once-bold experiment will continue to exist unevenly and indefinitely. The DH debate won’t die. “A little controversy between the leagues is really not all bad,” Commissioner Bud Selig said before the All-Star game in New York on Tuesday. Selig cast one of the votes for using the designated hitter in AL games starting in 1973, when he owned the Milwaukee Brewers, then an AL franchise. He acknowledged this week that further geographic changes to divisions could force MLB to either scrap the DH altogether or install it for the NL, but that’s a future possibility and not an imminent plan. When Houston switched to the AL West this year to even out the leagues at 15 teams each, daily interleague games became a necessity of the schedule. “At the moment,” Selig said, “we are not going to change it.” Perhaps the most polarizing of this sport’s many quirks and imperfections, the designated hitter came to be when AL teams sought to boost their then-lagging product. The decision was made during a time when the two leagues were far less integrated than now. The gimmick not only worked to increase scoring and attendance but created a way for some of the game’s greatest hitters to extend their careers — and make a lot more money.

beaten the NL’s mark in each of the first 40 seasons of the DH. The last time the NL hit above .270 was 1939. The AL has 11 seasons of .270-plus batting during the DH era. There are purists who have a hard time forgiving MLB for the installing the DH, though. Remember the movie “Bull Durham,” when Kevin Costner’s character Crash Davis launches his crude rant about the qualities and superficialities of life. “I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter,” he said. The NL guys, naturally, tout the purity of the no-DH game and the additional substitution strategy it provides. Many pitchers simply find it fun to try to hit — even if it means sometimes looking silly swinging meekly at strike three. Yes, DH conflicts keep on coming — even in spring training. The home team is supposed to decide whether or not to use it and sometimes managers disagree. Cincinnati’s Dusty Baker wanted to use Shin-Soo Choo in that role for an exhibition game in March as a precaution for his tight right quadriceps, but Arizona’s Kirk Gibson insisted on keeping the pitcher in the lineup so he could let starter Brandon McCarthy take some swings. Baker and Gibson argued before the game about it at home plate. Gibson prevailed because the Diamondbacks were the host team. When the games count, of course, the DH is used in AL ballparks and pitchers bat in NL venues. This year, that will force Detroit manager Jim Leyland to leave designated hitter Victor Martinez out of the lineup at Miami on the final weekend of the regular season while the other teams in the league use their DH as usual. If the AL Central or wild-card races are still unsettled then, that’s the kind of potentially pennant-altering wrinkle that could someday prompt a change.

Beilein signs contract extension

Orlando Cepeda even credited the rule for boosting his Hall of Fame credentials, after Boston signed him for the 1973 season following a long career with San Francisco. “That was one of the best years, because I was playing on one leg and I hit .289,” Cepeda said earlier this season. “And I hit four doubles in one game. Both my knees were hurting, and I was designated hitter of the year.” Designated hitters last year had the second-highest average salary by position at $8.1 million, behind first basemen at $8.6 million. That’s the main reason why eliminating the DH to bring the AL back on line with the NL is almost unfathomable. Boston’s David Ortiz, who recently passed Harold Baines on the career list for hits by a DH, is making $14 million this season at age 37. The designated hitter has also helped teams keep their best players in the lineup while giving them some type of rest. Minnesota All-Star catcher Joe Mauer is a prime example. When he needs a break from crouching behind the plate, manager Ron Garden can keep his potent bat in the lineup at DH. “I get a lot of questions about the DH, how we use it and all that stuff, but basically the way I see it is I’d rather see David Ortiz hit than some pitcher,” Mauer said, intending no offense to his own teammates. “So we’ll see. It is what it is right now.” Most of Mauer’s AL peers predictably express support for the DH’s existence, even if a lot of them would rather play a position than sit around between at-bats. The power of the players’ union, protective of this lucrative and prominent job, is another undeniable force for the DH. And despite the complaints from dads with sleepy kids at long games, fans usually enjoy seeing runs cross the plate. The cumulative AL batting average has

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Fresh off the first Final Four appearance of his career, Michigan coach John Beilein has a new contract. Athletic director Dave Brandon told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Beilein has signed a three-year extension that replaces his previous contract and keeps him with the Wolverines through the 2018-19 season. The 60-year-old Beilein will make $2.45 million a year in total Beilein compensation. “I am very excited to have this opportunity to coach at the University of Michigan for at least five more years,” Beilein said in a statement. “My staff and I will continue to work every day with our student-athletes to ensure they grow from this incredible educational opportunity.” The Wolverines lost in the NCAA title game last season to Louisville. Beilein’s previous contract extension kept him under contract through 2015-16. Michigan hired Beilein in March 2007, a week after he led West Virginia to the NIT championship. Last season was the Wolverines’ first national championship game appearance in two decades. “John is a tremendous ambassador of the University of Michigan and one of the most highly respected coaches in the country,” Brandon said in a statement. “He recruits

outstanding young men to represent the men’s basketball program and develops them as players, students and future leaders. John has built a program that will compete for Big Ten Championships on a regular basis and make exciting NCAA tournament runs.” Everywhere Beilein has been, from little schools to one of the biggest, he has won. The native of Burt, N.Y., has a career record of 673-403. His first job was at Erie (N.Y.) Community College in 1978, and he went on to coach at Nazareth, LeMoyne, Canisius, Richmond and West Virginia. With his first contract at Michigan, Beilein became the school’s highest-paid basketball coach ever with a six-year deal that was worth $1.3 million a season plus bonuses. Former athletic director Bill Martin, who hired Beilein to replace Tommy Amaker, said back then that negotiations with Beilein took 10 seconds in part because Beilein said his $2.5 million buyout at West Virginia was his responsibility. Beilein has taken Michigan to the NCAA tournament four times, and in 2012, the team shared its first Big Ten title since 1986. Guards Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. were both taken in the first round of this year’s NBA draft.
