National Night Out Tuesday By Melanie Yingst Staff Writer

San Diego mayor begins 2-week absence for therapy

MIAMI COUNTY — One summer night out of the year, the community can get up close and personal to witness the way of life for Miami County’s first responders. Miami County’s annual National Night Out kicks off Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. and runs until 9 p.m. at Troy Community Park. The annual event is modeled after a “neighborhood block party” as law officials, medics and other organizations set up shop to show what they do for the citizens of Miami County on a daily basis. Todd Bolton, Becky Chaney and Norm Drill are all co-chairman of the 2013 Miami County’s

National Night Out event. Each year, volunteer fire departments, county and city law enforcement and outreach organizations from around Miami County share their role in the community for one night of the year. “The new thing this year is that a local volunteer fire department will have a few ‘Jaws of Life’ demonstrations,” Bolton said. “People can get up close and see what it takes to free the car to get victims out — it should be very cool.” The “Jaws of Life” demonstration will take place three times during the event, Bolton said. Bolton said National Night Out is “all about the community getting to know their police department and community related organizations on a more

There they visited with the Lockington Volunteer Fire Department where they learned how to put out a fire using a fire extinguisher. The trio was assisted by Chief Jon Adams. “We just think it’s a thing to get peoples hands on it and use it,” Adams said. This year’s National Night Out event will take place Tuesday.

The closures came with a call for Americans abroad to take extra precautions throughout August, particularly when using planes, trains and boats, though some veteran expatriates shrugged off the warnings.

MIAMI COUNTY — One new building addition and multiple improvements around the fairgrounds are in store for the thousands of people to enjoy at the Miami County Fair, which runs Aug. 9-16.

Giving Tree gives students a leg up By Colin Foster

Associate Sports Editor

TROY — When kids grow up and look back at their time in junior high and high school, they remember the teachers or coaches that made an everlasting impact in their lives and the friends they made along the way. Then there are the little people, who give a little bit to make it all

possible for the kids in the first place. That’s where Tara George and Janie Johnson come in. Though they may not play a direct role in molding the minds of young America or teaching a kid how to run a button hook football play that earned him a college scholarship, George and Johnson play a small part

n Continued from page 1 in making an education possible in the first place. Members of the First Presbyterian Church in Troy, George, a retired school teacher, and Johnson have been involved with the Giving Tree for the last 30 years, a project that supplies somewhere between 150 to 175 kids with school supplies, clothing and basic school fees ever year. It is an estimated $15,000-20,000 project that requires the help of everybody within the congregation, along with assistance and donations from several local businesses, people and churches. “I just can’t emphasize enough (how many people help out), I mean, I would say that 98 percent of our congregation participates in this project. Everybody really gets on board with it,” Tara said. Their own church, however, isn’t the only one who only big contributor to this project — and Tara and Janie would be the first ones to point that out. The Miami Valley Corvette Club chipped in with a big financial donation this year, the United Methodist Church in Troy always gets together a big donation, the Troy Church of the Nazarene and the Troy Lutheran Church always have helped out; plus the St. John’s Church Bible School took up a collection for school supplies this past year. And they’re all helping out for good reason, too. The Giving Tree is all about helping out local kids and local businesses, with most of the shopping done in town. The names are given to the church through Partners In Hope, and a majority of the kids come from Troy, although they have also helped out kids from Miami East and Tipp City. The Giving Tree helps out kids from elementary through high school. The applications are received in late June and the work begins, with Tara and Janie handling the logistics. The tree went up July 28 and the dedication ceremony will be August 18. “We’ve both been apart

of it for 30 years,” Tara said. “The idea came from the Evangelism Committee and we tossed around different ideas. Originally, we thought we would do it at Easter. But there were several school teachers on the committee, so we decided the start of school would be better. The first year, we did 50 kids. Now we have 150 kids and we will end up with 175 before it’s all over. “Just because Janie and I have done this for 30 years, we’re just a small cause in this wheel. As I said, it’s the people in our church that are dedicated to doing this year after year after year.” Be that as it may, Tara and Janie would be lying if they told you the work they do isn’t rewarding. The gifts they give out and the reaction of the people receiving them is their own personal award. “If you could be there when the gifts are delivered, seeing all the kids jump up-and-down and be excited is special,” Tara said. “I’ve had many parents cry when we tell them their kids school fees are being paid. It’s very humbling.” “One of the first years we did it, we delivered to a family of three boys,” Janie recalled. “A couple years ago we had some temporary help where I worked. One of the boys was one of the guys we helped out years ago with the Giving Tree. He had just graduated high school and he was going to Ohio State in the fall. I was just so pleased that he was going to college. “There’s no proof that the Giving Tree gives them the extra boost they need, but when you start school with new shoes, new supplies, book bags, things they need … they just have a little more confidence.” It’s those little stories and interactions that have kept the Giving Tree going for 30 years. And when the children grow up and think about their time in school, they will remember the small people with big hearts that helped them out along the way.

Fair n Continued from page 1 the fair grounds this year. “It’s a lot brighter,” Wright said. “We did a lot of electrical work around the fair grounds this year.” When one takes a stroll around the fairgrounds, stop and smell the roses at the multiple landscaping projects dotted around the grounds. Wright said Kasey Wheelock of Kasey’s Outdoor Services donated the new landscaping around the Merchant’s Building. The Heffelfinger Brothers Lawn and Landscape donated

the landscaping at the sheep arena. The Union Township Producers 4-H Club donated new fences, plants as well as their time and labor, sprucing up the Memorial Gardens at the hog facility. “It’s great to have groups come out and donate their time to make the fair look nice. It’s very appreciated,” Wright said. Last year, the Duke Lundgard building installed new shower curtains for campers to wash off the day with more privacy.


ESTATE/SILENT AUCTION August 9th-14th 10:00am to 5:00pm

Saturday night in Canton. And although Cris had to wait until his sixth year of eligibility to get into the Hall, being passed over his first five chances, he got in on the most special of nights. The weekend was the 50th anniversary of the Hall of Fame, and Canton played host to the largest gathering ever of living Hall of Famers – more than 120 were present for the celebration. “We have the greatest Hall of all the Halls, and to be able to join these men on this stage in football heaven is the greatest day of my life,” Cris said. It was a great night for the family on hand to watch, also. “From the family perspective, we’re just grateful he got in,” said brother Shane Carter, a Troy High School graduate, former Wisconsin Badger football player and current Executive Director of the Lincoln Community Center in Troy. “I think it does (make it worth the wait). It’s a little bittersweet. “I grew up around a lot of famous people, met a lot of famous people. But regardless of getting starstruck or loving the game of football, when you see Joe Namath, Don Shula, all these greats from before your time, you can’t help but get goosebumps.” And while Carter recognized his family during his speech, he gave a special shout-out to his older brother, Butch. “My hero growing up was a guy by the name of Butch Carter,” Cris said. “He was the best basketball player in the state of Ohio. He was my role model as an athlete. He did everything the way you’re supposed to do it, conducted himself, dressed in the manner, did well in school, worked extra jobs, helped his mom, and Butch Carter, today as your baby brother goes into the Hall, you need to know you’re my hero.” But Cris also discussed the rockiest part of his pro football career – when he was cut from the Philadelphia Eagles by then-head coach Buddy Ryan in 1989 for alcohol and drug abuse. “What Buddy Ryan did was the best thing that ever happened for me when he cut me and told me I couldn’t play

for his football team,” Cris said. “But he told me a story. He told me the night before he went on and talked to his wife, and he asked his wife what he should do. And his wife told him, don’t cut Cris Carter. He’s going to do something special with his life. So Buddy Ryan, and your lovely wife, I thank you.” Perhaps because of what Ryan did, Cris did go on to do something special with his life. He played the next 12 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, and he left them as the franchise’s leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. He finished his career with 130 touchdown catches – 110 of them with Minnesota – and 1,101 receptions, both of which were the second-best career totals all time when he retired behind Jerry Rice, who was also present for the ceremony. Cris now sits in fourth place all time in both categories. “I’ve always had good teams around me, and guys you set a standard, and I appreciate that standard you set going to work,” Cris said of his five Hall-of-Fame Viking teammates who were on hand. “You guys showed me what it meant to be a pro, and you guys helped me in the transition. You knew I had tremendous issues, but you never held that against me,

and I appreciate it that now I stand here with you. I’m forever indebted to you.” He also had a special message for his mother, Joyce. “Mama, I got to tell you, I didn’t have to wait to get a call from the hall to tell me I was a Hall of Famer. You’ve been telling me since I was little,” Cris said. “You told me everything that’s ever happened in my life has happened. “But, mom, I’ve got to tell you. I have to apolo-

gize. I’m so sorry for the bumpy flight and the bumpy ride, but I got to tell you, mama, it’s a smooth landing.” And as the family made its way back home on Sunday, Cris’ father couldn’t have been more proud. “He’s always been a star to me,” Clarence said. “I got to come up here and see something special with all my boys. It was really nice.” And completely worth the wait.

– they will all be here.” Bolton said opening ceremonies kicks off at 5:30 p.m. with colors being presented by the American Legion Post 184. Local police departments will have registrations open for various safety programs and information about children booster seat safety, summer safety programs and adult protection programs as well. Bolton also said a hand full of activities,

along with door prizes and free food, will be an Ident-a-Kid booth. “Parents can come and run their children through the Ident-a-Kid program,” Bolton said. Along with the new organizations, many previous participants are returning, Bolton said. “There are new food vendors and we’ll have door prizes throughout the night,” Bolton said. “It’s a fun way to see everything the community has to offer in one

place, on one night.” Bolton said if it wasn’t for in-kind donations, grants and corporate funding, National Night Out would cost $25,000 to host the one-day event. “Without the commitment of the city of Troy and all the volunteers, this event wouldn’t be what it is today,” Bolton said. “I just want to give a big thanks to all those people who have volunteered their time or money to help with this event.”

Ohio killer set for execution found hanged in cell Sunday CLEVELAND (AP) — A man condemned to death for fatally stabbing a neighbor during a Cleveland burglary was found hanged in his cell Sunday just days before his Wednesday execution. Billy Slagle, 44, was found at about 5 a.m. at the Chillicothe Correctional Institution south of Columbus and was declared dead within the hour, prison spokeswoman JoEllen Smith said. “He was in his cell alone. No other inmates suspected to be involved,” Smith said in an email. “It does appear to be a suicide.” Under regular prison policy, he was scheduled to be placed under pre-execution watch Sunday morning but “was not yet placed under constant watch,” Smith said. Slagle’s defense team was shocked and saddened at the news and had no clue he might commit suicide, attorney Vicki Werneke said. “We were still litigating in court and had hoped that the execution would have been stopped. There was oral argument scheduled for Monday afternoon,” she told The Associated Press in an email. An autopsy will be conducted Monday, according to Mike Ratliff, chief investigator for the Ross County coroner. He said the case was under investigation and no initial findings could be pro-

vided. Slagle was sentenced in 1988 to die for the stabbing of Mari Anne Pope, who was killed while two young children she was watching were in the house. In a rare move, the prosecutor in Cleveland asked the Ohio Parole Board to spare Slagle. Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty said jurors today, with the option of life without parole, would be unlikely to sentence Slagle to death. The parole board and Gov. John Kasich both rejected mercy for Slagle. McGinty declined comment through a spokesman. Last week, Slagle’s attorney argued that a jury never got the chance to hear the full details of his troubled childhood. The attorneys, arguing for a new trial and to delay his execution, said that information met requirements for asking for a new trial, which normally must happen within four months of a conviction. Slagle was “unavoidably prevented” from filing his request because his original attorneys didn’t develop and present the evidence, the filing said. McGinty and Slagle’s attorneys had cited his age — at 18, he was barely old enough for execution in Ohio — and his history of alcohol and drug addiction.

States consider regulation of drones in U.S. skies CINCINNATI (AP) — Thousands of civilian drones are expected in U.S. skies within a few years and concerns they could be used to spy on Americans are fueling legislative efforts in several states to regulate the unmanned aircraft. Varied legislation involving drones was introduced this year in more than 40 states, including Ohio. Many of those bills

seek to regulate law enforcement’s use of informationgathering drones by requiring search warrants. Some bills have stalled or are still pending, but at least six states now require warrants, and Virginia has put a two-year moratorium on drone use by law enforcement to provide more time to develop guidelines. Domestic drones often

resemble the small radio-controlled model airplanes and helicopters flown by hobbyists and can help monitor floods and other emergencies, survey crops and assist search-andrescue operations. But privacy advocates are worried because the aircraft can also carry cameras and other equipment to capture images of people and property.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Australian, Sydney, on toil and trouble as talks resume: There is good reason to be skeptical about the chances of success for the new round of peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians. But at least they represent a long-overdue return to active diplomacy in the Middle East by the Obama administration after a protracted period of neglect, and in that lies hope Washington is finally willing to use its influence to get the two sides to negotiate seriously over a two-state solution. Certainly, the appointment of Martin Indyk, the former US ambassador to Israel who was educated in Sydney and taught at Macquarie University, to manage the resumed negotiations after a three-year hiatus suggests Secretary of State John Kerry is giving the initiative his best shot. And, for all the pessimism about the prospects, it could be that the dangerous witches’ brew the Middle East has become could provide both sides with the motivation to rethink previously irreconcilable positions. For Israel there are the daunting implications of the chaos in Egypt, its partner in the 1979 accord that forms the bedrock of what passes for peace in the Middle East; the turmoil in Syria that has drawn in al-Qa’ida and Hezbollah and is undermining the stability of Lebanon and Iraq; threats to the survival of Jordan’s moderate King Abdullah; and the prospect of Iran getting the bomb. … Ahead of the talks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has offered a significant concession — the release of 104 Palestinian prisoners, some responsible for the most heinous acts of terrorism, including bombing a bus filled with Israeli civilians. Despite this, the Palestinians refuse to budge on their demand that Israel accept that its 1967 borders should be the starting point for negotiations, and have done nothing to persuade Hamas in Gaza to recognize Israel’s right to exist. Israel has long been prepared to resume peace talks without preconditions. It is the Palestinians who have created the obstacles, and unless they are prepared to compromise it is unlikely even Indyk’s diplomatic skills will succeed. Achieving peace pivots on acceptance of Israel’s inalienable right to exist within secure, defensible borders. The Korea Herald, Seoul, South Korea, on corrupt tax officials: Public trust in the nation’s tax office has taken another tumble with the emergence of allegations that a former chief of the National Tax Service took bribes from CJ Group in return for favors during a tax audit years ago. Prosecutors have already arrested Heo Byung-yik, a former deputy commissioner of the NTS, on suspicion that he took bribes from CJ, a food and entertainment conglomerate whose chairman, Lee Jay-hyun, was recently indicted on charges of dodging taxes and misappropriating corporate money. Heo is suspected of having received $300,000 in U.S. currency from the business group in 2006. But he was quoted as saying that he had delivered the money to Jeon Goon-pyo, who was appointed the NTS commissioner at the time. Prosecutors hence raided Jeon’s residence to obtain financial documents that would prove his receipt of illegal money from CJ. They also searched the Seoul office of the NTS to seize documents related to the tax audit on CJ in 2006. Jeon is suspected of having helped CJ emerge unscathed from the tax audit. At the time, the NTS’ Seoul office secured evidence that the group and its chairman evaded some 360 billion won in corporate and income taxes. But the tax office refrained from levying any taxes on them. But Jeon strongly denied that he had received any money from CJ. Prosecutors have summoned him for questioning. Jeon was recently released from prison after serving years for taking bribes in 2006 from the then head of the Busan branch of the NTS, who wanted a promotion. The investigation into Jeon and Heo comes at a time when the NTS is making determined efforts to shake off its image as a corrupt and untrustworthy public agency. In March, NTS chief Kim Deok-joong pledged to uproot tax corruption before waging a war against the underground economy. In May, he launched a task force to inspect tax officials and introduced a “one strike and you are out” system in which a tax inspector will be transferred to other fields if he is found to have received illegal money even once in connection with his job. In June, he invited a prosecutor to lead the inspection task force and ordered tax officials not to meet taxpayers after undertaking a tax inspection. The latest probe into former top officials is demoralizing to incumbent NTS officials. But Kim should not allow it to derail his campaign to clean house. The corrupt former officials should serve as examples.

LETTERS Concert was outstanding To the Editor: I would like to thank the city for bringing the Glenn Miller Band in to perform in downtown Troy. It was truly an outstanding concert. I grew up listening to the Glenn Miller Band, but my children and grandchildren did not. I think my daughter was hoping I was taking her to see The Steve Miller Band instead. Be that as it may, both my children and grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the show. The Glenn Miller Band spans across all generations. Good music is good music, regardless of the generation you are from. I am hoping Troy brings more concerts like this to downtown Troy. It’s something we can all be proud of! — Marvin Palmer Troy

There are no winning ways with my welding It’s hard to believe when the outside temperature is in the 80s, but the Winter Olympics are coming up. It is reported on the Internet (so you know it has to be true) that after the Winter Olympics are broadcast, the sale of ice skates skyrockets. Little girls and boys watch athletes who were born knowing how to spell Salchow and think, “I want to do that.” Those little girls and boys quickly find out two things. 1. Skating well is a lot harder than it looks. 2. The ice is a lot harder than it looks. True, seven year olds don’t have as far to fall as adults, but it still hurts. Then there is the problem of trying to get your fallen self up off the ice. Ice is not only harder than it looks, it is incredibly slippery. Ice skates might be good tools for gliding across the ice but they are perhaps the worst possible implements for trying to rise from a, shall we say, sprawled position on that same ice. Plus you have to practice thirty hours a day and develop an immense affinity for

Sikh temple attack united victim’s son, ex-racist OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) — Six weeks after a white supremacist gunned down Pardeep Kaleka’s father and five others at a Sikh temple last year, Kaleka was skeptical when a former skinhead reached out and invited him to dinner. But Kaleka accepted, and he’s grateful he did. Since then, the grieving son and repentant racist have formed an unlikely alliance, teaming up to preach a message of peace throughout Milwaukee. In fact, they’ve grown so close that they got matching tattoos on their palms — the numbers 8-5-12, the date the gunman opened fire at a Milwaukee-area Sikh temple before killing himself minutes later. It wasn’t easy for Kaleka to meet Arno Michaelis, a 42-year-old who admits he contributed so heavily to the white-power movement that he might have helped influence the shooter. Kaleka knows Michaelis’ history — his lead singing in a white supremacist band, the white-power and swastika tattoos, the countless fights and more than a dozen arrests. But he also saw the good work Michaelis has done since he quit the racist movement in the mid1990s. Kaleka, 37, wanted his father’s death to be a catalyst for peace, and he saw in Michaelis a partner whose story could reinforce the message that it’s possible to turn hate into love. “We were both hoping … we could take something tragic and turn it into something positive — a learning experience for the entire community,” Kaleka said. “We were both on that same mission, in our different ways.” Michaelis had written a book called “My Life After Hate,” in which he describes how he lashed out at the world starting in kindergarten and how the birth of his daughter made him realize he needed to change. He also works with kids on community service projects. Kaleka still has lingering fears that Michaelis might relapse and return to his old ways. But as he’s gotten to know Michaelis, he says the boulder of doubt has become a pebble. Michaelis, an information technology consultant, understands the skepticism. He knows he hurt so many people during his seven years in the whitesupremacy movement that his sincerity will always be questioned, which is why he works even harder to regain people’s trust. The two men have teamed up to create

AP Photo In this July 31 photo, Pardeep Kaleka, left, and Arno Michaelis talk at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek, Wis. A year ago a white supremacist shot and killed six temple members, including Kaleka’s father, Satwant Singh Kaleka. Michaelis, a former skinhead, reached out to Kaleka after the shooting and since then the pair have formed an unlikely alliance, teaming up to preach a message of peace throughout Milwaukee.

Serve2Unite, a community group that works to counter violence with peace. Kaleka, Michaelis and others visit middle schools and high schools, where Kaleka describes how gunman Wade Michael Page walked into the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin last year and killed six people he didn’t know. Then Michaelis describes how the gunman’s white-supremacist background was nearly identical to his own. Invariably, the children are riveted, Kaleka said. Afterward several will come up and ask how they can get involved. Kaleka and Michaelis look nothing alike. Kaleka is a clean-cut Indian who teaches high school social studies. Michaelis, who’s white, has both arms covered in tattoos that mask earlier racist messages. But as they sat together in the temple recently, just down the hallway from the bedroom where Kaleka’s father was shot, they seemed like brothers, insulting each other goodnaturedly and arguing over who was more handsome. That brotherhood began at their first dinner. Sitting in his car outside the restaurant, Kaleka watched Michaelis walk inside and wondered if he was crazy to be meeting with a former skinhead. Still, he summoned the courage to do it. Michaelis immediately asked about a bandage on Kaleka’s eye, the temporary remnant of a mishap Kaleka suffered while bathing his daughter. “There was no, ‘Hi, how you doing?’ He went straight from seeing me to showing concern,” Kaleka said. After Kaleka told him what happened, Michaelis

admitted that he too was a klutz, and a friendship was born. Michaelis doesn’t shy away from discussing his past. He grew up in an alcoholic, emotionally cold household. He began to rebel as early as kindergarten, bullying other kids on the bus and picking fights on the playground. He eventually got into the white-power movement for the shock value, but the more he associated with haters, the more he began to hate. But hating was exhausting. He couldn’t watch Green Bay Packers games because black and white players were playing together. He couldn’t watch TV because Hollywood was a Jewish conspiracy. He loved “Seinfeld” but he had to record it on a videotape labeled “Amber’s second birthday party” so his white-power friends wouldn’t know he thought a Jew was hilarious. Eventually, the combination of his daughter’s birth and a friend dying in a street fight was the catalyst for him to move on. His past never really left him, though. When he heard that the gunman who killed six people at a Sikh temple was a white supremacist, he lay awake that night agonizing that the gunman might have been someone he’d recruited into the white-power movement or inspired as the lead singer of the hate band Centurion. It turns out he hadn’t known Page but he still felt responsible for his actions. “We were both whitepower skinheads. We were both in white-power bands,” Michaelis said. “In just about every sense, I used to be him.”

Police arrest suspect in deadly L.A. driving attack Security video taken at the popular tourist site showed a man parking a black car, stepping out and surveying the leisurely scene for several minutes before getting back into the vehicle and speeding into the crowd. Hundreds of people who had been walking or sitting at cafes raced to get out of the way before the vehicle sped out of sight. Witnesses reported a horrifying aftermath. People were ” stumbling around, blood dripping down their legs, looking confused not knowing what had happened, people screaming,” said Louisa Hodge, who described “blocks and blocks of people just strewn across the sidewalk.” The Italian woman was identified as Alice Gruppioni, 32. Her family

in Bologna told the Italian news agency LaPresse that she had been on her honeymoon after a July 20 wedding. Gruppioni worked as a manager for the family business Sira group, which makes radiators. Her father, Valerio Gruppioni, runs the company and was formerly president of the Bologna soccer team, according to LaPresse. The family declined to speak to The Associated Press on Sunday. Authorities said another person was critically injured. Two others were taken to hospitals in serious condition and eight suffered less serious injuries. The crash was not far from where an elderly driver sped through an openair farmer’s market in Santa

Monica in 2003, killing 10 people and injuring more than 70 others. Investigators said George Weller, who was 86 at the time, mistakenly stepped on the gas instead of the brake and then panicked. He was doing up to 60 mph when he plowed through the market. Weller was convicted of 10 counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and was sentenced to probation. It was not immediately clear how fast the car in Saturday’s crash was going. According to security video and witness accounts, the driver parked next to the Cadillac Hotel and twice walked out to the boardwalk before getting into the Dodge Avenger and accelerating, swerving around yellow poles meant to prevent



LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police arrested a man on suspicion of murder after a driver plowed into crowds at the Venice Beach boardwalk, a seemingly intentional hit-and-run that killed an Italian woman on her honeymoon and injured 11 others. Nathan Louis Campbell, 38, of Los Angeles, was arrested after he walked into a police station in neighboring Santa Monica about two hours after the incident and told police that he was involved. Campbell remained jailed Sunday on $1 million bail. Deputy Chief Kirk Albanese declined to discuss a motive but said there was no indication that the attack was a terrorist act or that anyone else was involved.

Pundits ask: Why won’t Weiner just leave NYC race? NEW YORK (AP) — Why doesn’t Anthony Weiner just quit? It’s a question angry voters, pundits and fellow politicians have been asking almost nonstop in the nearly two weeks since the New York City mayoral candidate’s latest sexting bombshell, which has sent his poll numbers plummeting and turned his campaign into a chaotic sideshow. Weiner insists he’s staying in the race no matter what. And experts say that beyond the former congressman’s well-known ego and combativeness, his stance may just be rooted in political calculation. A leading theory: Weiner takes his hits on the campaign trail, gives the media a chance to ask every sexting question and essentially punch themselves out on the issue. And even if he loses, he emerges with the scandal mostly behind him and his political career refreshed to run for higher office again. “All along, there has been a school of thought that Weiner was running in part to rehabilitate his image,” said Wendy Schiller, a Brown University political scientist. “That, even if he didn’t win, a strong showing would set him up for another run down the road.” “Even now, he stays in the race, takes his lumps and shows some character,” Schiller said. “That might resonate with New Yorkers. And if he does better than people think he should, that helps for the future, too.” With fewer than 40 days until the Democratic primary, Weiner has been doing his best to push past the horde of reporters and photographers and make his case directly to voters. In recent days, he has been leaving events with more applause than when he entered. When a man at a Bronx campaign stop last week questioned the viability of Weiner’s campaign, asking, “When do you say ‘Enough is enough?’” the candidate’s hoarse voice roared to life. “If you become the mayor of the City of New York, you’ve got to put up with

on Howard Stern’s satellite radio show. Weiner’s campaign manager quit and his spokeswoman was forced to apologize for cursing out an intern who wrote a tell-all article about the campaign. Other factors may explain why Weiner insists on putting up with all this, not the least of which is money. Because of city campaign finance laws, Weiner is eligible for $2.1 million in matching funds, money he would have lost if he did not run this year. He would also lose access to the matching funds if he quit now even if he decides to run again. His campaign bank account, much of which was raised for a 2009 mayoral bid he never launched, now totals just over $5 million. Like most mayoral candidates, Weiner is expected to spend most of his campaign money to finance a TV advertising blitz in the campaign’s final weeks. “”He can try to use post-Labor Day TV to rehabilitate his image and maybe (get past the primary),” said Joseph Mercurio, a political consultant who is not affiliated with any candidate. “Even if he doesn’t, he’ll have millions of dollars’ worth of polished ads that could improve people’s opinions of him. It’s not harebrained.” But the redemption strategy is risky. It already was dealt a blow by last month’s revelations and could be derailed entirely if more scandalous behavior was to be uncovered. “He said it was in the past, but obviously it wasn’t the past,” said Steven Cohen, a political scientist at Columbia University. “People will have a hard time believing him the next time, too. He lied to the public.” Another factor in keeping Weiner in the race is the ballot itself. Because it has already been finalized, voters will see Weiner’s name on primary day even if he did drop out. In addition, the Democratic field remains unsettled and lacks a contender who has seized control of the race, experts believe.

AP Photo New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, center, leaves a meeting with leaders from the South and East Asian communities in Queens, on Friday in New York. Weiner was at the top of the Democratic polls last month only to fall after the recent sexting revelations. A poll released last week had him in fourth place with 16 percent, trailing City Council Speaker Christine Quinn at 27 percent, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio at 21 and ex-city comptroller Bill Thompson at 20.

this every single day,” Weiner told the crowd. “People saying to you, ‘You know what, you did something we don’t like.’ Cameras in your face. ‘Change your mind, back down. Quit.’ That’s not the kind of mayor I’m going to be.” The next night, Weiner traveled to a Queens neighborhood that was once part of his congressional district. A man asked how voters could ever trust him again. “I’ve dishonored my wife, but sir, I didn’t do anything to you,” Weiner said. “If you think you’re a better person and a better candidate, why don’t you want to let me run? Let the citizens of this city decide.” At yet another Queens event, there were boos from the crowd, but they were directed at longshot Republican candidate George McDonald for calling Weiner “a self-pleasuring freak.”

“I’m facing some tough challenges now, and one thing all of my opponents agree upon is they’d rather I wasn’t running,” he said. “Well, tough,” he said to applause from the audience. Team Weiner seems to be embracing the confrontations. His campaign sent out an email to supporters titled “Getting an earful from a voter,” which included a video depicting the tough Bronx exchange. Weiner is persevering through a stretch of relentless and brutal news coverage that began after he was forced to admit that he continued to trade illicit online messages with women even after he resigned from Congress in 2011 for similar behavior. There have been mocking tabloid headlines and the spectacle of his 22-year-old online sexting partner telling her story

Good eyesight helps children learn better The Common Core State Standards have been developed with the goal of better education for our students. The College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD), is excited about the potential of these standards to improve elementary and high school education in the United States, but explains there is a significant missing link to the system. As COVD launches their annual National Children’s Vision and Learning Month campaign, they shine light on the missing link. According to the Common Core State Standards Initiative website, “The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.” The question is will everyone know exactly what to do to help the struggling students? Typically, children with vision problems that interfere with reading and learning slip through the system unde-

Study: Hula has heart health, spiritual benefits HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii research presented to a convention of the American Psychological Association claims hula is good for the heart and soul. According to research by the University of Hawaii medical school and the Queen’s Medical Center, learning hula dancing can lower blood pressure and help rehabilitate patients after heart attacks or cardiac surgery. The research attempted to evaluate how hula can help improve health among Native Hawaiians, whose death rate from heart disease is roughly twice that of the general population in the state, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Friday ( ). Mele Look, an investigator

on the studies, said there’s also evidence hula has emotional and spiritual benefits. “Hula has never been used before as an intervention in a scientific research study,” Look said. “We wanted to understand it both from the cultural side as well as from the Western scientific side.” One study examined 45 people diagnosed with hypertension. Half of them took hula classes twice a week for 12 weeks, including heart health education. That group saw their blood pressure drop by 20 points on average. The control group saw a nine-point drop. Most of the participants with Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander.

Advances in technology allow more local surgeries Advances in technology and anesthesia are making it possible to offer less invasive surgical procedures in the local community. Less invasive techniques can result in shortened hospital stays as well as decreased recovery time for patients. As a result, Miami County Surgeons can offer more procedures locally, giving patients the option of surgery in a familiar setting close to home. The Miami County Surgeons can perform a variety of surgical procedures such as abdominal surgery, including gallbladder, appendix and colon cancer; anti-reflux surgery; breast biopsies and cancer surgery; thyroid, parathyroid and vascular surgery; colonoscopies; and upper endoscopies. “We can do the same colon cancer surgeries and breast cancer surgeries that they can do any place else, so many times patients can

stay here at home,” said surgeon Chris Grove, M.D., who is a Piqua native. Other surgeons in the group include L. Stewart Lowry, M.D.; Patrick Larreategui, D.O.; and Daniel Taylor, M.D. Dr. Rowan Nickol recently retired from the practice, and Zachary Simmons, M.D., will join the practice later this summer. Laparoscopic surgery, when suitable, helps promote recovery because it involves a few small incisions as opposed to a traditional open surgical procedure, Dr. Grove said. In addition, the less invasive surgery usually means people can resume activities more rapidly following discharge. The Miami County Surgeons also utilize advances in pain management which allows select patients to control pain without the use of a narcotic after surgery.

“When you are not taking a narcotic, you don’t get the dizziness, the nausea and the gut doesn’t slow down in reaction to the narcotic. That is what allows us to get patients out of the hospital quicker,” Dr. Grove explained. Another step forward in patient comfort due to technology is use of carbon dioxide versus air in colonoscopies. “Using the air makes the patient feel bloated the rest of the day. They have to pass the air out where in using carbon dioxide the body absorbs it, and then it is breathed out. This gets them out of recovery quicker, home quicker, and without the bloated feeling,” Dr. Grove said.

The physicians at Miami County Surgeons anticipate they will pursue robotic surgery training with the focus on learning now for use in the future, Dr. Grove said. While proven benefits have been seen with robotic surgeries for urology and gynecology, the use in general surgery is an evolving field, he noted. “We want to be at the front end, be prepared, and also want to evaluate safety and cost-effectiveness,” he said. Dr. Grove said the practice wants people to know it is local, works with local physicians, is available to provide many types of surgeries and is close if there is a problem following surgery.

Monday, August 5, 2013



(AP) — Today is Monday, Aug. 5, the 217th day of 2013. There are 148 days left in the year. On this date: In 1864, during the Civil War, Union Adm. David G. Farragut led his fleet to victory in the Battle of Mobile Bay, Ala. In 1884, the cornerstone for the Statue of Liberty's pedestal was laid on Bedloe's Island in New York Harbor. In 1912, the Progressive Party, also known as the "Bull Moose Party," convened in Chicago. (The party was formed by former President Theodore Roosevelt following a split in the Republican Party.) In 1921, a baseball game was broadcast for the first time as KDKA radio announcer Harold Arlin described the action between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Philadelphia Phillies from Forbes Field. (The Pirates won, 85.) In 1924, the comic strip "Little Orphan Annie" by Harold Gray made its debut. In 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt established the National Labor Board, which was later replaced with the National Labor Relations Board. In 1936, Jesse Owens of the United States won the 200-meter dash at the Berlin Olympics, collecting the third of his four gold medals. In 1953, the movie "From Here to Eternity" had its world premiere in New York. In 1962, actress Marilyn Monroe, 36, was found dead in her Los Angeles home; her death was ruled a probable suicide from "acute barbiturate poisoning." South African anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela was arrested; it was the beginning of 27 years of imprisonment. In 1963, the United States, Britain and the Soviet Union signed a treaty in Moscow banning nuclear tests in the atmosphere, in space and underwater. In 1969, the U.S. space probe Mariner 7 flew by Mars, sending back photographs and scientific data. In 1981, the federal government began firing air traffic controllers who had gone out on strike. Today's Birthdays: Actor John Saxon is 77. College Football Hall of Famer and former NFL player Roman Gabriel is 73. Country songwriter Bobby Braddock is 73. Actress Loni Anderson is 68. Actress Erika Slezak is 67. Rock singer Rick Derringer is 66. Actress Holly Palance is 63. Singer Samantha Sang is 60. Actress-singer Maureen McCormick is 57.

Syria’s war splits nation into 3 distinct regions BEIRUT (AP) — More than two years into Syria’s civil war, the once highly-centralized authoritarian state has effectively split into three distinct parts, each boasting its own flags, security agencies and judicial system. In each area, religious, ideological and turf power struggles are under way and battle lines tend to ebb and flow, making it impossible to predict exactly what Syria could look like once the combatants lay down their arms. But the longer the bloody conflict drags on, analysts says, the more difficult it will be to piece together a coherent Syrian state from the wreckage. “There is no doubt that as a distinct single entity, Syria has ceased to exist,” said Charles Lister, an analyst at IHS Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Center. “Considering the sheer scale of its territorial losses in some areas of the country, Syria no longer functions as a single allencompassing unitarily-governed state.” The geographic dividing lines that have emerged over the past two years and effectively cleft the nation in three remain fluid, but the general outlines can be traced on a map. The regime holds a firm grip on a corridor running from the southern border

with Jordan, through the capital Damascus and up to the Mediterranean coast, where a large portion of the population belongs to President Bashar Assad’s Alawite sect. The rebels, who are primarily drawn from Syria’s Sunni Muslim majority, control a chunk of territory that spans parts of Idlib and Aleppo provinces in the north and stretches along the Euphrates river to the porous Iraqi border in the east. Tucked into the far northeastern corner, meanwhile, Syria’s Kurdish minority enjoys semi-autonomy. Those contours provide the big picture view. The view from the ground, however, is slightly muddied. While Sunni rebels control large swathes of Syria’s rural regions in the north, the government still controls provincial capitals there, with the exception of Raqqa city and parts of Aleppo city. The regime also still retains some military bases and checkpoints in the overwhelmingly rebelheld countryside, but those are besieged and isolated and supplies for troops are air-dropped by helicopters or planes. Moreover, the opposition movement itself is far from monolithic, and there have been increasing outbursts of infighting between al-Qaida affiliated extremists and

moderate rebel groups, as well as between Kurds and rebels of a radical Islamic bent. That violence holds the potential to escalate into a full-blown war among armed opposition factions. The Assad regime has made headway in recent months in the strategic heartland of Homs, clawing back territory long-held by rebel fighters. Those gains have helped the government secure its grip on Damascus and the pathway to the coast. They also have reinforced opposition accusations that Assad’s military is driving out local Sunni communities to try to carve out a breakaway Alawite enclave that could become a refuge for the community if the regime falls. For now, Assad’s overstretched and warweary troops appear unable to regain the vast territories they have lost to rebels and jihadists who now control oil wells and other key resources such as dams and electricity plants in the north and east. Black al-Qaida flags that carry the Muslim declaration of the faith now fly over many areas there, as a way to mark their turf distinctly from the three-starred green, black and white flag flown by the various rebel brigades that make up the loose-knit, Western-backed Free Syrian Army.

SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Security forces closed roads, put up extra blast walls and increased patrols Sunday near some of the 22 U.S. diplomatic missions in the Muslim world that Washington had ordered closed for the weekend following warnings of a possible al-Qaida attack. The closures came with a call for Americans abroad to take extra precautions throughout August, particularly when using planes, trains and boats, though some veteran expatriates shrugged off the warnings. “I have been here long enough to know where and where not to go,” said Brian Edwards, a professional basketball player from Detroit, Michigan, who has lived in Egypt for nearly six years. “I feel generally safe.” Some warned, meanwhile, that such security measures are not sustainable. “It sets a precedent,” said Shadi Hamid, an analyst with the Brookings Doha Center. “What happens if you keep on getting credible threats?” The State Department has said some of the 22 missions might remain closed after Sunday. The countries with closure orders covered much of the Muslim and Arab world, from Mauretania in the west to Bangladesh in the east. In recent days, U.S. officials have said they have received significant and detailed intelligence suggesting a possible attack, with some clues pointing to the al-Qaida terror network. The State Department said the potential for terrorism was particularly acute in the Middle East and North Africa, with a possible attack occurring on or coming from the Arabian Peninsula. “The threat was specific as to how enormous it was going to be and also that certain dates were given,” Rep. Pete King, R-N.Y., who chairs a House panel on counterterrorism and intelligence, told ABC on Sunday. King said he believes al-Qaida “is in many ways stronger than it was before 9/11 because it has mutated and it’s spread in dramatically different locations.” The terror network’s Yemen branch, known as al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, “is the most deadly of all the al-

Qaida affiliates,” King said. In Jordan, a counterterrorism official said available information pointed to a potential threat to U.S. interests in the Arabian Peninsula, specifically in Yemen, and that this prompted the temporary closure of U.S. missions across the Muslim world. He spoke on condition of anonymity as he wasn’t authorized to discuss the issue with journalists. In Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, security was beefed up Sunday around the U.S. Embassy building and the nearby Sheraton Hotel where U.S. Marines stay. Police set up a checkpoint at an access road leading to the embassy, asking some drivers for identification before letting them pass. Soldiers typically guard the area around the embassy, but on Sunday they were spread out in a wider radius. Cars were prevented from stopping outside the Sheraton, where two armored vehicles sat out front. A Yemeni security official said the request for extra security came from Washington. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information. Extra security also could be seen near U.S. embassies in Bahrain, Iraq and Jordan. In the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, troops set up new blast barriers last week to block several streets leading into the city’s already heavily fortified Green Zone, home to the sprawling U.S. Embassy and Iraqi government offices. Troops also intensified searches of those entering the Green Zone, opening car trunks and frisking male passengers. In the Jordanian capital of Amman, a Jordanian security officer said bomb squads searched the perimeter of the U.S. Embassy while additional security vehicles were deployed in the area, including troop carriers with special forces trained in counterterrorism. Security also was tightened around the homes of U.S. diplomats in Amman, said the officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations. The State Department, meanwhile, urged U.S. travelers to take extra precautions. Expats appeared to take the warnings in stride.

AP Photo In this Oct. 10, 2012 file photo, San Diego Mayoral candidate Bob Filner, right, thanks San Diego School Board Vice President Scott Barnett, left, for his endorsement in San Diego. A third woman on Wednesday, July 24, 2013, publicly identified herself as a target of Mayor Filner’s sexual advances, as the beleaguered leader of the nation’s eighth-largest city named his third chief of staff in less than two weeks.


ing a university dean and a retired Navy rear admiral, have gone public in the past month with accusations that Filner cornered them and made unwanted sexual advances that included groping and slobbering kisses. At least five renewed their calls for Filner to resign after he pledged to begin therapy. “It is highly doubtful that two weeks of therapy will correct for decades of reprehensible behavior,” said Laura Fink, who alleges that Filner patted her buttocks at a 2005 fundraiser when she was deputy campaign manager to the then-congressman. One accuser, former Filner communications director Irene McCormack Jackson, has filed a harassment lawsuit against him. Her lawyer, Filner’s attorney and city lawyers will depose him Friday. Filner, the city’s first Democratic leader in 20 years, will keep full powers while in therapy and said he would be briefed twicedaily on city business. Filner also has delegated significant authority, including the ability to sign contracts, to an interim chief operating officer, Walt Ekard, a former county administrator. The mayor’s absence comes during a summer lull, with the City Council on August recess. Nevertheless Filner’s Republican predecessor, Jerry Sanders, said his absence occurs when the mayor’s office normally “would get caught up, do a lot of policy work and make sure things got in order.” Sanders, who now leads the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, believes the scandal is affecting day-to-day business. He said department directors are hesitant to make decisions, that money has not been released for the city’s tourism marketing district, and investors are reluctant to start projects. “We are hearing companies saying: ‘Why would we move to San Diego? With this going on the city is the absolute object of ridicule around the country,’” Sanders said. Experts who spoke generally about treatment approaches and not specifically about Filner said patients being treated for addictive or compulsive sexual behavior typically get a medical examination to rule out chemical imbalances or other physical ailments. Therapists would try to build trust so the patient is comfortable sharing personal information and try to determine if the person is in denial. Once a problem is acknowledged, doctors try to identify what triggers the behavior so patients can develop a coping mechanism, build a support network and find other ways to control it. Long-term treatment may involve weekly group or individual therapy. Friedman said any such recovery requires hard work over a lifetime. “People feel after an inpatient stay that they have things under control,” she said. “However, when they are back in their usual environment, they’re confronted with the same triggers that got them into treatment.”

San Diego mayor begins 2-week absence for therapy SAN DIEGO (AP) — Therapists say admitting one has a problem is the first step toward recovery. For San Diego Mayor Bob Filner that could be tricky. The first-term mayor and former congressman starts two weeks of intensive therapy Monday while facing a sexual harassment lawsuit and calls for his resignation amid a flurry of allegations that he groped women for years. Even as he undergoes treatment, Filner is set to be grilled by lawyers under oath this week in a lawsuit brought by his former communications director that claims he asked her to work without panties, told her he wanted to see her naked and dragged her around in a headlock while whispering in her ear. Neither Filner nor his office has released details about his therapy or its location. Filner is picking up the tab for the treatment. Filner’s accusers, his onetime supporters and voters have expressed skepticism that any two-week program is an appropriate remedy for what Filner himself has described as years of inappropriate behavior toward women. Longtime therapists also questioned how much progress could be made. “It is pie-in-the-sky to think that in two weeks anyone could be a new man,” said Helen Friedman, a St. Louis psychologist who has treated compulsive sexual behavior for 30 years, though she said it was a good start. Success will depend on how far the 70-year-old Filner goes in acknowledging his problems, experts said. “Typically in the first few sessions you have to find someone you really trust,” said Lilli Friedland, a Beverly Hills psychologist who advises business executives on sexual harassment. “‘Can I open up with all my dirty laundry, and is this person expert enough?’ It takes a number of sessions and visits to establish that trust.” Some voters wondered whether the therapy stint was simply an effort to buy time amid extraordinary pressure to resign. “He needs to save face,” said Christina Imhoof, 72, who voted for Filner in November but then quit the Democratic Party over the allegations. She said she suspects Filner will return after the time-out and say his therapist has encouraged him to resign for medical reasons. Filner announced his plans on July 26 to enter a behavioral counseling clinic to “begin the process of addressing my behavior.” He called it the first step in a continuing program that would involve ongoing counseling. “I must become a better person … I must demonstrate that my behavior has changed,” Filner said then, while offering apologies and an acknowledgement that his “failure to respect women, and the intimidating contact, is inexcusable.” The mayor’s office did not respond to interview requests.

Kahne wins at Pocono Holds off teammate Gordon for victory LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — Jeff Gordon had the inside line, a lead and his first win of the season in sight, usually a sure thing for Pocono’s top winner. Kasey Kahne was about out of time to pass his Hendrick Motorsports teammate. “It was either to go for it and make it work,” Kahne said. “Or not.” Cruising from the outside, Kahne got the jump he needed, zipped past Gordon and pulled away with two laps left Sunday to win at Pocono Raceway. “I about gave it away when Jeff got by me,” Kahne said. Kahne recovered in the No. 5 Chevrolet for his second victory of the season, all but securing his spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. He had the

car to beat for the final half of the 400-mile race until a late caution bunched up the field. Gordon nudged past Kahne after some thrilling two-wide racing and seemed poised to win at Pocono for the seventh time. After the final caution, Kahne was simply too fast, too strong to be denied his first win at Pocono since 2008. So close to the checkered, this loss stung Gordon. Even worse, his runner-up finish came on his 42nd birthday in his 42nd career Pocono start. “I thought all I needed to do was get in here and got to the bottom and I’d be good,” Gordon said. “He got a killer run and blasted by on the outside of me.

Bengals taking ‘Hard Knocks’ crew on the road


Cincinnati Reds’ Jay Bruce strikes out against St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn in the fourth inning of a baseball game Sunday in Cincinnati.

Bad ending CINCINNATI (AP) — The weekend started badly and ended worse for the Cincinnati Reds, who sense that something is starting to slip away. Matt Carpenter broke his 0-for23 slump with a bases-loaded double during the decisive rally, and the St. Louis Cardinals ended a tough trip on the upswing by beating the Reds 15-2 on Sunday,

finishing off a rough series for the defending NL Central champions. “This was disheartening,” reliever Sam LeCure said. “Losing is one thing, but going out there and getting embarrassed in front of your fans who are showing up to support you is another. And we did just that.” • See ENDING on page 14

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — The Bengals are coming to the Falcons’ training camp. HBO’s Hard Knocks cameras will be waiting. Cincinnati is the star of this year’s documentary series. The Bengals will share Atlanta’s training camp facility on today and Tuesday before the teams meet in their preseason opener on Thursday night. Atlanta often holds combined practices with other teams in camp. Having the HBO crew on site adds a new twist to two-a-day doldrums. The Falcons turned down an offer to star in the series last year. Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said he was careful to talk with Falcons coach Mike Smith about the HBO arrangement. “Smitty and I talked about it quite a bit,” Lewis said, adding Smith has “the same concerns” about protecting certain information. “He knows what the parameters are and he’ll have an opportunity to meet with the people down there,” Lewis said. “Obviously this is a unique thing.” The Falcons’ stance is they are hosting the Bengals, but they are only visitors to the Bengals’ TV show. “We will not have any of our players miked,” Smith said. “This show is about the Cincinnati Bengals.” Smith said he was an assistant with Baltimore and Jacksonville when the HBO series focused on those teams. Falcons receiver Roddy White, one of the team’s

most talkative players, said he wanted no part of having his practice chatter captured for TV. “I’m not really a mikedup guy,” White said after Sunday’s practice. “I just like to come out here and practice. I don’t want them to hear what I’m saying because I don’t want them to say it on TV. We’ll be going over signals and things like that, so I don’t want to give away our calls early in the season.” Smith said his close relationship with Lewis made it easy to work out the details for the combined practices. Smith was a position coach with Baltimore from 19992002 when Lewis was the Ravens’ defensive coordinator. “Marvin is a mentor to me,” Smith said. “We speak regularly during the season unless we’re playing one another. And we communicate in the offseason. Marvin is one of my closest friends in this business.” Smith said the goal is “to come out and compete against each other. Have fun and play smart. That’s what we want to do.” HBO executive producer Ross Ketover said he made sure there will be no surprises for Smith and the Falcons. “We’ve worked a lot with coach Smith,” Ketover said. “In fact, we spent a summer with the Jaguars one year when he was the coordinator down there. So I don’t expect any issues with the Falcons.” Ketover said it was difficult to predict how much the Falcons would be seen on the series.

As PED-Day looms, will it deter drugs in baseball? By the Associated Press

Tiger finishes off Bridgestone victory


August 5, 2013

Josh Brown

Baseball’s PED-Day is set to launch. The question now is whether this will stop the drug cheats once and for all. To Logan Morrison, the suspensions and shame and loss in salary might not be enough. To really deter them, the Miami Marlins’ first baseman suggests clubs pay a price, too. “Maybe penalizing the teams for guys who signed — like Melky signing that $16 million deal — maybe the team should have to give up something,” Morrison said. Which would be fine with Dodgers second baseman Mark Ellis. “We’re sick of it. Tired of it,” he said. “We don’t want the fans thinking everybody cheats. You listen to people talk and they associate

baseball with cheating.” “The teams maybe should look at some things. Not sign guys who are caught. That would be a good thing. Start taking guys’ money away,” Ellis said. Major League Baseball was poised to levy significant drug suspensions Monday, with three-time MVP Alex Rodriguez and All-Stars Nelson Cruz and Jhonny Peralta facing the stiffest penalties in the Biogenesis case. Overall, 14 players were facing discipline. “I think all of us are curious what’s going to happen,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday. Melky Cabrera, Bartolo Colon and Yasmani Grandal served suspensions after positive tests last year. They’ve been tied to this performanceenhancing drug case, but can’t be disciplined

again for the same offense. Cabrera, the MVP of last year’s All-Star game, finished his 50-game suspension in October. Released by the champion San Francisco Giants after the season, the outfielder signed a $16 million, two-year deal with the Toronto Blue Jays. Will the upcoming penalties serve as a deterrent? Hall of Famer Joe Morgan will wait and see. “It depends on what the punishments are. The thing with me is always the risk versus the reward,” he said. “What is the reward? Getting a $150 million contract. What is the risk? A 30-day suspension, a 60-day suspension? The risk doesn’t outweigh the reward.” “Until that happens, it’s not going to change,” he said. “It’s very simple: The risk has to outweigh the reward.”

The loss dropped third-place Cincinnati 6½ games behind the Pirates, their biggest deficit since the end of the 2011 season. The Reds are 10 games over .500 and still in good shape for a wild card, but that’s not much comfort. “We’re running out of tomorrows and we need a sense of urgency,” LeCure said. “We’ll see what we’re made of here coming down the stretch. Thankfully we do have some time to get it right.” Along the way, they’re going to have to figure out how to beat the Cardinals, who have beat them up pretty regularly this season. St. Louis took two of three at Great American Ball Park and has won its last six series against Cincinnati, its best such stretch against the Reds since 2003-04. The Cardinals lead the season series 8-4.

They opened the series with a 13-3 win on Friday. On Sunday, they finished it with their most runs against Cincinnati since 1993. They’ve scored at least 10 runs against the Reds in four games this season, the first time they’ve done that since 1980. It’s been that lopsided. “Some teams you play better than others, but they’ve got our number for sure,” said Mike Leake (10-5), who gave up a season-high seven runs. “They play us tough. It’s on us to try to figure them out because they’ve got us figured out for the most part.” Carpenter’s two-run double off the wall completed a five-run rally in the sixth against Leake and two relievers. Matt Adams, David Freese and Tony Cruz homered for the Cardinals, who have scored 13, 13, 3 and 15 runs in

their last four games. St. Louis finished with 19 hits and a season high in runs. Every starter except Lance Lynn drove in at least one run. “That’s one of the worst defeats I can remember,” manager Dusty Baker said. “We just had another ‘worst’ two days ago, and this one was worse than that. We certainly have to get our act together. “I don’t like getting beat up. I don’t like getting embarrassed.” Lynn (13-5) allowed four hits in eight innings, including Zack Cozart’s tworun homer. Lynn struck out a seasonhigh 11 and joined Adam Wainwright as 13-game winners in a rotation that has the NL’s third-best ERA. Indians 2, Marlins 0

Golden girl Right on par: Franklin wins record 6th gold at swim worlds

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Missy Franklin climbed to the top of the podium one more time in Spain before heading off to college. With that step, the 18-year-old joined a very exclusive club. Missy, we’d like to introduce you to Michael Phelps, Mark Spitz, Ian Thorpe and Kristin Otto. “I still can’t really believe that it happened,” Franklin said. She claimed her record sixth gold medal of the world championships Sunday night, swimming the leadoff leg for the Americans in the 400-meter medley relay. Franklin gave the U.S. a slight lead in the backstroke, and her teammates — Jessica Hardy, Dana Vollmer and Megan Romano — made it look easy from there. The winning time was 3 minutes, 53.23 seconds, nearly two seconds ahead of runnerup Australia, with Russia claiming the bronze. Franklin “I had some really great races that I’m really proud of, and there’s still a bunch where I have a lot of room to improve,” Franklin said. “So I’m really excited for the next year and the year after that and all the years following those.” It might be hard to top this one. Franklin became the winningest female swimmer ever at a world meet, eclipsing the record that was shared by Tracy Caulkins, who won five times in 1978, and Libby Trickett, who did it in 2007. Perhaps more impressively, Franklin became only the fifth swimmer to capture as many as six golds at either worlds or an Olympics. Quite a club it is. Phelps won six golds at the 2004 Athens Olympics, seven at the 2007 worlds and, of course, a record eight at the Beijing Olympics, eclipsing Spitz’s mark of seven at the 1972 Munich Games. Otto won six golds at the 1988 Seoul Olympics — an accomplishment since clouded by revelations of rampant

doping in East Germany — and Thorpe claimed a half-dozen victories at the 2001 worlds. Now, there’s Franklin. She completed a grueling week in which she competed in eight events. She dropped out of the 50 backstroke after swimming in the preliminaries of the non-OIympic event, wanting to focus on more important races, and took fourth in the 100 freestyle. Otherwise, it was all gold. She improved on her performance at the London Olympics, where she was one of the biggest stars with four golds and a bronze. “I just wanted to see where I was after London,” Franklin said. “It’s kind of an unknown year. There are so many things that can happen.” Indeed. Check out what transpired with the American men in their 400 medley relay. They celebrated what looked to be an easy victory, only to discover that 19-year-old breaststroker Kevin Cordes, the least experienced member of the foursome, left too soon on the exchange between the first and second legs. The U.S., which touched nearly 1½ seconds ahead of France, was disqualified. The French moved up to take the gold, while the silver went to Australia and Japan snatched the bronze. “That’s like a punch in the gut right there,” said Bob Bowman, coach of the U.S. men’s team. Cordes stood on the deck in disbelief, hands on his head, but the replay showed he clearly left the block before backstroker Matt Grevers touched the pad. Ryan Lochte could only shake his head, having contributed a strong butterfly leg that didn’t matter. He was denied his fourth gold medal of the meet, leaving him tied with Chinese star Sun Yang as the winningest male swimmers. “A relay disqualification is not a particular individual’s fault,” said Nathan Adrian, who swam the anchor leg in vain. “It falls on all of our shoulders.”

AKRON (AP) — They say par is a good score in a major. If that’s true next week at the PGA Championship, then Tiger Woods has already done his share of preparation. Woods played safe and smart with a big lead, parring 16 holes in an even-par 70 Sunday to coast to a seven-shot victory at the Bridgestone Invitational for his eighth win at the event — matching the PGA Tour record he already shared for victories in a single tournament. “As blustery as it was, it was going to be really hard for someone to shoot 62 or 63,” Woods said. “If I didn’t give any shots away and played my game and shot even par or better, I’d force these guys to go and shoot something super low on a golf course that wasn’t going to give it up under these conditions.” As he walked to the scorer’s trailer to finalize his score, he scooped up 4-year-old son Charlie, who hugged him tightly as his father strode past the large gallery wildly cheering his landslide victory. “This is the first win he’s ever been at,” Woods said. “That’s what makes it special for both of us.” Daughter Sam was on hand when Woods, won the U.S. Open in 2008, before his personal life imploded. Now Charlie will have some memories of dad in the winner’s circle. “They always say, ‘Daddy, when are you going to win the tournament?’ It was a few years there, or a couple years, I hadn’t won anything,” Woods said, smiling. “‘Are you leading or not? That’s a stock question. ‘Not leading.’ ‘Well, are you going to start leading?’ ‘Well, I’m trying.’” After a second-round 61 in which he flirted with 59, Woods ended up at 15-under 265 to easily beat defending champ Keegan Bradley and Henrik Stenson. Bradley, a huge fan of Tiger’s when he was a youngster, was asked if he liked to see Woods dominate like he did a decade or so ago. “When I was younger, I did,” Bradley said. “You know, I hate to sit here and go on and on about how good he is, but he is. It’s difficult because I really want to get up there and contend with him. But he’s just … this week he’s playing really well.” Woods’ mastery at Firestone Country Club allowed him to again match Sam Snead’s PGA Tour record for wins in an event. Snead won the Greater Greensboro Open eight times. Earlier this year, Woods won at Bay Hill for the eighth time. As if he weren’t already the favorite next week in the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, the lop-

MIAMI (AP) — The booming hiphop on the stereo in the Cleveland Indians’ postgame clubhouse was quickly dialed down to low volume, and the celebration following their 15th shutout victory of the season was muted. The team had a plane to catch, and a big series to play beginning Monday. Scott Kazmir and three relievers combined on a four-hitter Sunday, and Cleveland won for the 10th time in the past 11 games, beating the Miami Marlins 2-0. The Indians begin a four-game series at home Monday against AL Central leader Detroit. With the win over Miami, Cleveland remained three games behind the Tigers.

Tiger coasts to Bridgestone victory

sided victory reinforced it. No one ever got within six shots all day of the world’s No. 1. When he had a good shot at a pin, he took it. Otherwise, he took few, if any, risks. He birdied the 10th hole, then offset that with a three-putt bogey at the 14th hole. But by then most of the field was thinking about catching flights to Rochester instead of catching Woods. Bradley, who won a year ago when Jim Furyk double-bogeyed the 72nd hole, shot a 67 to get to 8 under along with Stenson, who had a 70 while playing with Woods. “He kind of punctured this tournament on Friday,” Stenson said. “He did what he needed to do today.” Tied for fourth were Clevelandborn Jason Dufner (71), Miguel Angel Jimenez (69) and Zach Johnson (67) at 6 under. Bill Haas and Chris Wood each shot a 71 and were at 5 under, with Martin Kaymer, who matched the day’s best round with a 66, at 4 under along with Furyk, Richard Sterne and Luke Donald. For those betting Woods won’t win next week at Oak Hill, keep in mind that he has already won both the Bridgestone and the PGA Championship in the same year three times in his career (2000,

2006, 2007). Still, the odds do not favor him coming right back with another win. In the 19 times in which he has won his last start before a major, he’s only followed up with a win four times: 2000 U.S. Open (after winning The Memorial), 2001 Masters (Players), 2006 PGA (Buick) and 2007 PGA (Bridgestone). The victory was Woods’ 79th on the PGA Tour, drawing him within three of Snead’s record 82 triumphs. • Women’s British Open ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — Stacy Lewis had another big week at St. Andrews and left with an even bigger prize — a major championship at the home of golf. Lewis finished a marathon Sunday with exquisite birdies on the last two holes of the Old Course to close with an even-par 72 and win the Women’s British Open by two shots. It was her second major on the LPGA Tour, ending a record streak of 10 straight majors won by Asian players. The last time the 28-year-old Lewis was at St. Andrews was in 2008 for the Curtis Cup, and she went 5-0 to lead the Americans to victory.

me by surprise. It just kills your momentum.” Kurt Busch, who also celebrated a birthday, Ryan Newman and Dale Earnhardt Jr. rounded out the top five. The top five cars were Chevrolets. Busch helped out Kahne with one final push down the frontstretch to find some needed speed. “That was kind of the race at that point,” Kahne said. “Once I cleared (Gordon) getting into two, from there it was just, don’t make a mistake and try to run the quick lap on the last one.” Kahne, Gordon and Earnhardt made it an outstanding race for Hendrick. Teammate and series points leader Jimmie Johnson was 13th after a blown tire knocked him out of the lead. Kahne had stretched his lead to almost 8 seconds when a caution for debris came out with 12 laps left. Gordon, who won at Pocono each of the last two years, was strong in the No. 24 and had the lead as he tried to extend his record for career wins at Pocono. Matt Kenseth spun with four laps

left to erase Gordon’s lead and set up the thrilling finish. Gordon led again until Kahne ran him down with a hard, sweeping run past his teammate for the win. “We had them. We certainly had the position,” Gordon said. “I’m pretty disappointed I let him get inside of me on (turn) one.” Kahne also won this season at Bristol. He jumped a spot to eighth in the points standings and need a win to make sure he’d at least qualify for a wild-card spot should he fall below 10th place. Kahne was third last week at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and seems to be heating up with five races left until the Chase field is set. With two wins, he’d also be closer to Johnson and Kenseth once the points are reset when Chase field is set. Kahne’s 16th career win should make him a Chase lock. “The Chase is what it’s all about in NASCAR,” Kahne said. “You need to make it.” Gordon, who has six Pocono wins,

finished second last week and has three straight top 10s to also position himself for a spot in the 12-driver field. He had won at Pocono each of the last two seasons. When Gordon leads late at Pocono, he usually wins. Just not this time. “I’m frustrated right now because we had a shot at it,” Gordon said. “We know how important wins are.” Gordon hangs on to ninth in the standings, but could be out of a Chase spot if he falls outside the top 10 without a win. Johnson, who set a track record in qualifying, again had the dominant car for half the race until he blew a front tire. A week after a slow, final pit stop cost him a win at Indianapolis, Johnson was done in this time by a tire issue that ended his chance to win. Johnson, who won the June race from the pole, stretched his points lead to 77 over Clint Bowyer. Danica Patrick lost control of her car, triggered a four-car crash and was 35th. Kenseth’s late spin knocked him

to 22nd. But it was that spin that made the difference for Kahne. He may not have caught Gordon without the final caution. “We had speed. I could move around,” Kahne said. “But to actually clear him and make the pass, I think it would have been really difficult. I’m glad that second caution came out there and gave us another shot.” Kahne took a moment in Victory Lane to remember his friend, Jason Leffler. Leffler was killed in June on a dirt track in New Jersey only days after racing in the Pocono Cup race. Kahne and Leffler were friends and traveled together on the way home from the June race. “Just me and him,” Kahne said. “We spent a bunch of time together and then that happened that Wednesday. It was tough. There are so many people that are good friends with Jason and knew him really well. I just wanted to mention something about him.”

Manziel in hot water? NCAA looking into possible rule violation BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — ESPN says the NCAA is investigating whether Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was paid for signing hundreds of autographs in January. Citing unidentified sources, ESPN's "Outside the Lines" said the Heisman Trophy winner signed items in exchange for a five-figure fee during his trip to Miami for the BCS championship game. ESPN said sources told "Outside the Lines" that Manziel signed photographs, footballs, mini football helmets and other items at the request of autograph broker Drew Tieman. ESPN reported that a source said James Garland, the NCAA's assistant director of enforcement, contacted Tieman and at least one person associated with the signings in June. "We cannot comment on current, pending or potential investigations," NCAA spokeswoman Emily Potter told The Associated Press in an email statement Sunday night. Texas A&M also declined to comment. "It is Texas A&M's longstanding practice not to respond to such questions concerning specific studentathletes," the school said in an email statement to the AP. It's unclear what level of involvement the NCAA has at this point. When a player is believed to have broken rules, it's not uncommon for a school to declare that player ineligible, then ask the NCAA to investigate and reinstate the athlete's eligibility. Nate Fitch, a friend of Manziel's, posted several tweets at that time saying he was with the Heisman winner in South Florida for the BCS title game. None of Fitch's tweets around the dates of that trip suggested anything about meeting with Tieman, or any memorabilia signings. Tieman's Facebook page was taken down Sunday night, but cached images collected from the page included a photo of him and Notre Dame's Manti Te'o, which was purportedly taken Jan. 3, less than a week before the BCS game.

Kimball earns 1st career win at Indy 200 LEXINGTON (AP) — Charlie Kimball is a diabetic. A condition the IndyCar driver manages with a mixture of vigilance, discipline and perspective. Kind of like the way he handles the horsepower at his fingertips. Six years after the diagnosis that changed his life and two-plus seasons into a career blossoming right under his feet, the guy who used to wonder if he'd get to do this for a living is now a race winner. Kimball slipped by Simon Pagenaud with 18 laps remaining then pulled away to win the Indy 200 on Sunday at Mid-Ohio, his triumph validation that the plan team owner Chip Ganassi put in place when he hired Kimball as the third driver on his powerful team remains very much on schedule. After a few trips around the tricky 2.258-mile circuit, Kimball knew the only way he could win would come if he punched it. While top qualifiers Ryan HunterReay, Will Power and Scott Dixon eased off the gas to stretch their mileage, Kimball pressed his foot to the floor figuring he could make up whatever precious seconds he lost by pitting three times if he just kept the hammer down. It worked better than he imagined, propelling the 28year-old to the top of the podium and erasing any lingering doubts he had about whether he belonged in North America's top openwheel series.

Words To Know Sport Game Coverage Field

Helmets Points Team

American Football is one of the world’s most popular competitive sports. It is mostly popular in the United States where football is the number one spectator sport. Each year the NFL championship, the Super Bowl, is the most watched events= on TV. College football is also very popular with numerous 100,000 plus stadiums selling out every week. Points in football are scored by advancing the football beyond the goal line (called a touch down) or kicking the ball through a field goal. The rules of the sport are quite complex and differ depending on the levels of play. Football is a true team sport. Most players specialize in a particular position and skill. With eleven players and defense and offense, many substitutions, as well as special teams, most teams will play at least 30 or 40 players on a regular basis. This makes teamwork and overall team talent more important than the abilities of any single player.

FOOTBALL TERMS: Audible: When the quarterback changes the football play at the line of scrimmage. Bump-and-run: When a defender hits a receiver and then goes into pass coverage. This defensive play is used to slow down the receiver and mess up any timing on the offensive play. Eligible receiver: The football players on the offense that are allowed by the rules to catch a forward pass.

FOOTBALL: The Field Football is played on a field. Most of the time the field is grass, but sometimes fake grass called artificial turf is used. Because the lines on the field look like a grid, the nickname for the field is the “gridiron”. Football field Football field dimensions Click to see larger version Dimensions The main playing area of the field is 100 yards (300 feet) long by 53 1/3 yards (160 feet) wide. End Zones At each end of the field is an end zone. This area extends the field another 10 yards on each side. The line between the field and the end zone is the goal line. In order to score a touchdown some portion of the ball must cross the goal line in the possession of an offensive player. Play outside the lines of the end zone is considered out of bounds. Yard Lines Every five yards a line crosses the field. Each 10 yards this line is marked with a yardage number. At the center of the field is the 50 yard line. In each direction from the 50 yard line to the end zone, the yard line decreases the closer you get to the end zone. Hash Marks Hash marks are small lines made every yard on the field. These lines help to spot the ball on the field and give an indication of the distance left to achieve a first down. Field Goal At the end of the end zone and centered on the field is the field goal. The bottom of the field goal is 10 feet high. In the NFL and college the posts are 18 feet 6 inches wide. In high school the posts are 23 feet 4 inches wide. Side Lines The side lines are considered out of bounds. If any part of the player touches the line, then they are out of bounds. Goal Line The goal line is the line between the playing field and the end zone.

Encroachment: A penalty when any football player contacts the other team prior to the snap. End zone: The area at the end of the football field where the offensive team must have possession of the football to score a touchdown. Extra point: After a football team has scored a touchdown, they have the opportunity to score additional points. They can kick an extra-point for 1 point or try a 2-point conversion for 2 points. Fair catch: By signaling with a wave, the football player making a kick return can choose to catch the football and take possession of the ball where he made the catch. He will not get tackled, but he also will not be allowed to run with the football. Field goal: A three point score, when the kicker kicks the football above the crossbar and between the uprights of the goalpost. Fumble: When a football player drops the football. The ball is available for any other player to gain possession for his team. Holding: A penalty where a football player grabs an opponent. Intentional grounding: A penalty called when the quarterback purposely throws an incomplete pass just to avoid a sack. Interception: A pass that is caught by a football player on the defense. Lateral: A backward pass. Football players may lateral the football as many times per play as they want. If a lateral is dropped, the ball is still live (like a fumble) and any player may recover it.

End Line The end line is the line at the back of the end zone.

Line of scrimmage: The location on the field where the football is spotted and the next play begins. Linemen: The offensive and defensive football players who start each play at the line of scrimmage. Nickel defense: When the defense brings in a 5th defensive back to help cover the pass play.
