Mental illness gun law data doesn’t add up COLUMBUS (AP) — Figures collected under a state gun law requiring Ohio’s probate courts to report information about people subject to court-ordered hospitalization for mental illnesses don’t add up, and the state’s top law enforcement official wants to know why. Attorney General Mike DeWine has ordered his regional field representatives to contact all 88 probate courts to determine why the numbers — required under Ohio’s 2004 concealed weapons law — vary so widely. The goal of the reporting requirement is to keep people with serious mental illnesses from obtaining a conceal-carry permit. Hamilton County, home to Cincinnati and the state’s third most populous county, reported 10,000 cases of mental illnessrelated court orders over a nine-year period since the law passed, according to attorney general data obtained by The Associated Press through an open records request. Yet Cuyahoga County, home to Cleveland and Ohio’s most populous county, reported 3,200 cases during the same time period.
That’s fewer than Montgomery County, home to Dayton and the fifth most populous county, which reported 5,600. Some big counties reported few or none — such as Lake County in northeast Ohio, which reported just two cases over nine years. “The numbers per county leave a lot to be desired whether or not we’re getting comprehensive and complete data,” Steve Raubenolt, deputy superintendent of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, told the AP. There’s no evidence that someone who shouldn’t have obtained a concealed weapons permit did so because of the data issues, Raubenolt said. But the state still doesn’t know if people who should be on a list preventing them from applying for the permits aren’t in there, he said. Concern over the figures dates back at least to the administration of Attorney General Richard Cordray. He asked probate

Few texting citations so far in Ohio

Police and EMS personnel work the scene of a multiple-vehicle crash on State Route 48 south of West Milton on Saturday afternoon. The crash left one person dead. Another was transported by CareFlight for serious injuries and at least two others taken to area hospitals by ambulance.
Crash victim identified Staff Reports
WEST MILTON — The Piqua post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a five-vehicle fatal crash that occurred on State Route 48 on Saturday afternoon. The preliminary investigation by the OSHP indicates that at approximately 4:05 p.m., a motorcycle driven by David Baker, 58, of Englewood, was travelling north bound on State Route 48 at the south end of West Milton when he collided with another north bound motorcycle driven by Jeffrey Bayless, 36, of West Milton. Both motorcycles struck the rear of a car driven by Timothy Elliott, 65, of West Milton, which had stopped to let traffic out of the
lot of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. The two cycles then bounced into the south bound lane striking motorcycles driven by Brian Wright, 45, of Eaton, and Garry Norris, 55, also of Eaton. David Baker was pronounced dead at the scene by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office. Louise Baker, 66, of Englewood, was a passenger on David Baker’s motorcycle. She was taken to Miami Valley Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Bayless and Wright both were transported by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital and are in stable condition. Norris also was taken to Miami Valley Hospital where he was treated and released. The crash remains under investigation.
COLUMBUS (AP) — Traffic citation statistics indicate there hasn’t been a big upswing in tickets for Ohio motorists who text while driving. The Columbus Dispatch reported Sunday (http://bit. ly/172EfoV ) that a check of three populous counties didn’t find many citations under the Ohio ban that took effect a year ago. The Ohio State Highway Patrol issued warnings in the first six months the law was in effect. A Patrol spokeswoman says it doesn’t have a tally of citations written since the grace period ended nearly six months ago because the data set would be so small. The newspaper reported that 10 adults have been cited under the state ban in Franklin County, while Hamilton County has had 18 ticketed. In Cleveland, two tickets for the statewide ban have been written, with many more written under a local ordinance. For adult drivers in Ohio, the state law is a secondary offense, meaning drivers would have to be stopped for another offense. Columbus, in Franklin County, also has a local ban on texting while driving. In effect since 2010, 140 citations have been issued under the Columbus ban.

For Obama, world looks far different than expected WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly five years into his presidency, Barack Obama confronts a world far different from what he envisioned when he first took office. U.S. influence is declining in the Middle East as violence and instability rock Arab countries. An ambitious attempt to reset U.S. relations with Russia faltered and failed. Even in Obama-friendly Europe, there’s deep skepticism about Washington’s government surveillance programs. In some cases, the current climate has been driven by factors outside the White House’s control. But missteps by the president also are to blame, say foreign policy analysts, including some who worked for the Obama administration. Among them: miscalculating the fallout from the Arab Spring uprisings, publicly setting unrealistic expectations for improved ties with Russia and
a reactive decision-making process that can leave the White House appearing to veer from crisis to crisis without a broader strategy. Rosa Brooks, a former Defense Department official who left the administration in 2011, said that while the shrinking U.S. leverage overseas predates the current president, “Obama has sometimes equated ‘we have no leverage’ with ‘there’s no point to really doing anything’.” Obama, faced most urgently with escalating crises in Egypt and Syria, has defended his measured approach, saying America’s ability to solve the world’s problems on its own has been “overstated.” “Sometimes what we’ve seen is that folks will call for immediate action, jumping into stuff, that does not turn out well, gets us mired in very difficult

Texting n Continued from page 1 However, nearly a third of those have been dismissed. “Unless you have an admission by the person, it can be hard to prove what exactly they were doing with the phone,” said Melanie Tobias, an assistant city prosecutor. Prosecutors also might agree to dismiss the texting citations to get a plea agreement on a more-serious charge. Drivers also might be concealing their activity. “We know it’s dangerous because driver inattention will cause accidents,” said Perry Township police chief Robert Oppenheimer. “It’s just hard to get them at it.” There’s little doubt that the texting goes on, though. One study estimated that 45 percent of drivers ages 18-24 texted while driving in states that have bans. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says texting bans haven’t made a major difference in reducing crashes in states that have them. “In effect, drivers may be trying to conceal the fact that they’re texting,” said Institute spokesman Russ Rader. Some research indicates the bans can lead to even riskier texting behavior in trying to cover up the activity. “Police officers often note that drivers trying to avoid detection move the phone down below window level, and that actually takers their eyes off the road for a longer period,” Rader said.

Egypt courts hear cases against Mubarak, Islamists CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian courts on Sunday heard separate court cases against former President Hosni Mubarak and top leaders of his archrival, the Muslim Brotherhood, both over allegations of killing protesters in separate instances. Egyptian media portrayed the prosecution of longtime foes as “trials of the two regimes,” an attempt to show that both Islamists and secular-leaning Mubarak authoritarian regimes are alike after a July 3 military coup toppled President Mohammed Morsi, a Brotherhood member. Weeks of mass rallies by Muslim Brotherhood supporters over Morsi’s ouster have weakened over the past days as security forces have detained many Brotherhood leaders. The military-backed government has responded by relaxing curfew hours, trying to signal a return to normalcy across the country. “We have crossed the swamps and muddy pools, and now we are on the safe side,” Ahmed el-Musalamani, a spokesman for interim-president’s spokesman, said Sunday. He added: “We have overcome the tough phase.” At a heavily-fortified courtroom in eastern Cairo, Mubarak looked relaxed in dark sunglasses and white clothes as he appeared for his first court appearance since he was released from prison last week and transferred to a military hospital. The 85-year-old ex-president sat in a chair next to his two sons who are being tried in a separate corruption-related case. Mubarak has been in detention since April 2011. He was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison last year for failing to stop the killing of some 900 protesters in the 18-day 2011 uprising, but his sentence was overturned on appeal. In April, his retrial opened along with those of his security chief and six top police commanders. His trial has been postponed to Sept. 14.
A mosque’s minaret near the river Nile river is reflected on an open office window in Cairo, Egypt, Sunday.
In a separate hearing Sunday, top Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie and five other members of the Islamist Brotherhood saw their hearings postponed until Oct. 29. The defendants, two of whom are still in hiding and being tried in absentia, face charges stemming from clashes outside the Brotherhood’s Cairo headquarters on June 30 that left nine dead. The four in detention were not present in the downtown Cairo courtroom for security reasons. The military ousted Morsi after millions took to the street demanding he step down. He’s been held incommunicado since his overthrow. Prosecutors have accused him of conspiring with foreign groups to break out of prison during the chaos of the 2011 uprising against Mubarak. He is also being investigated in connection to another case of protesters’ killings in December. Authorities allege that Morsi supporters have committed
acts of terrorism since the coup, pointing to a string of attacks against churches and government buildings. The Brotherhood and Morsi supporters deny their protests are violent and deny that they attack churches, accusing authorities of smearing their movement. Rights groups, however, say Islamist groups have incited violence against Christians, who have been blamed collectively for Morsi’s overthrow. The Egyptian Initiative For Personal Rights issued a report on Sunday documenting what it said was an “unprecedented spike in scale of sectarian violence and reprisals” against Coptic Christians over a fourday period in August. At least 45 churches came under attack and a total of seven citizens were killed, the initiative said. It blamed security forces for failing to intervene and Islamist groups for helping to “feed the current wave of sectarian attacks.”
Islamists also issued renewed calls Sunday for demonstrations in a statement. Arrests and killings appear to have weakened the Brotherhood’s ability to mobilize its following. Calls for rallies fizzled out on Saturday as the government eased up the curfew hours affecting much of the country. The military-backed interim government meanwhile is pursuing a fast-tract transition plan that it says will return the country to democracy. On Sunday, a 10-member panel of experts handed a first draft of proposed constitutional amendments to the interim president, a first step toward amending the now-suspended charter drafted last year under Morsi. A second panel of 50 members will work on the amendments before finalizing them and putting them for public vote. Once the constitution is adopted, the plan calls for presidential and parliamentary elections early next year.
World n Continued from page 1 situations,” he said. “We have to think through strategically what’s going to be in our long-term national interests.” The strongest challenge to Obama’s philosophy on intervention has come from the deepening tumult in the Middle East and North Africa. The president saw great promise in the region when he first took office and pledged “a new beginning” with the Arab world when he traveled to Cairo in 2009. But the democracy protests that spread across the region quickly scrambled Obama’s efforts. While the U.S. has consistently backed the rights of people seeking democracy, the violence that followed has often left the Obama administration unsure of its next move or taking tentative steps that do little to change the situation on the ground. In Egypt, where the country’s first democratically elected president was ousted last month,
the U.S. has refused to call Mohammed Morsi’s removal a coup. The ruling military, which the U.S. has financially backed for decades, has largely ignored Obama’s calls to end assaults on Morsi supporters. And U.S. officials are internally at odds over whether to cut off aid to the military. In Syria, where more than 100,000 people have been killed during the two-and-a-half year civil war, Obama’s pledges that President Bashar Assad will be held accountable have failed to push the Syrian leader from office. And despite warning that Assad’s use of chemical weapons would cross a “red line” in Syria, there was scant American retaliation when he did use the toxic gases. On Sunday senior administration official said there is “very little doubt” that a chemical weapon was used by the Syrian regime against civilians in an incident that killed at least a hundred people last week. The official spoke on condition of anonymity
because the official was not authorized to speak publicly. Few foreign policy experts predicted the Arab uprisings, and it’s unlikely the U.S. could have — or should have — done anything to prevent the protests. But analysts say Obama misjudged the movements’ next stages, including Assad’s ability to cling to power and the strength of Islamist political parties in Egypt. “The president has not had a long-term strategic vision,” said Vali Nasr, who advised the Obama administration on foreign policy in the first term and now serves as dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. “They’re moving issue to issue and reacting as situations come up.” Obama advisers say the president is frustrated by what is seen as a lack of good options for dealing with Arab unrest. But the president himself has pushed back at the notion that the U.S. has lost credibility on the world stage because he hasn’t
acted more forcefully. “We remain the one indispensable nation,” Obama said in a CNN interview aired Friday. “There’s a reason why, when you listen to what’s happened around Egypt and Syria, that everybody asks what the U.S. is doing. It’s because the United States continues to be the one country that people expect can do more than just simply protect their borders.” But the perception of a president lacking in international influence extends beyond the Arab world, particularly to Russia. Since reassuming the presidency last year, Vladimir Putin has blocked U.S. efforts to seek action against Syria at the United Nations and has balked at Obama’s efforts to seek new agreements on arms control. Putin’s hard-line approach stands in stark contrast to the relationship Obama cultivated in his first term with Putin’s predecessor, Dmitri Medvedev. The two held friendly meetings in Moscow and Washington
(Obama even took Medvedev out to lunch at a local burger joint) and achieved policy breakthroughs. They inked a new nuclear reduction agreement, and Moscow agreed to open up supply lines to help the U.S. pull troops and equipment out of Afghanistan. Michael O’Hanlon, a national security analyst at The Brookings Institution, said the president miscalculated in assuming that a few signs of improved ties would be enough to overcome years of distrust with the Russians. “The issue here is one of raised expectations, unrealistically high expectations that Obama himself deliberately stoked,” O’Hanlon said. “He hoped that a more pragmatic, disciplined, less interventionist foreign policy would appease the Russians.” The White House’s ties with Russia were further damaged this summer when Moscow granted temporary asylum to Edward Snowden, the former government con-
tractor accused of leaking documents detailing secret U.S. surveillance programs. In retaliation, Obama canceled plans to meet with Putin in Moscow next month, though he will still attend the meeting of leading rich and developing nations in St. Petersburg, Russia. But the international impact from the National Security Agency revelations has spread beyond Russia. In European capitals, where Obama’s 2008 election was greeted with cheers, some leaders have publicly criticized the surveillance programs. Among them was German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who questioned the legitimacy of the programs while standing alongside Obama during his visit to Berlin earlier this year. Obama has long enjoyed high approval ratings from the European public, though those numbers have slipped in his second term. So has European approval for his administration’s international policies.
mental health treatment centers refer defendants to other counties. As a result, those cases are reported by another probate court. That’s the case in Ashtabula County in northeast Ohio, which reported just three cases over nine years. Ashtabula County Probate Judge Charles
Hague thinks the problem runs deeper. He says the state’s mental health system is broken and needs to be overhauled. Hague also points out that individuals who go through a separate commitment system, known in the mental health field as “pink slipping,” aren’t reflected in the probate court numbers at all.
In cases where a commitment occurs without the court’s knowledge, “Then, bingo, they’re outside the statute forever,” Hague said. Including all people in the mental illness commitment process, some of whom ultimately sign themselves in voluntarily, would cast too wide a net, said Marc Baumgarten,
chief of legal services for the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. “You want to encourage people to get help,” he said. “You don’t want a stigma associated with people going into the hospital to get help.”

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Guardian, London, on Pakistan, the general is no longer untouchable: Compared with the announcement in June in which the Pakistani prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, declared his government’s intention to press charges against Pervez Musharraf for treason, Tuesday’s court indictment against the former military ruler for murder in connection with the assassination of Benazir Bhutto is a sideshow. Few analysts believe there is hard evidence linking Musharraf to Bhutto’s murder, although a UN report concluded that he failed to make serious efforts to ensure her safety. The treason charges, if they materialize, are a different matter, as the legal case that he subverted the constitution when he imposed emergency rule in late 2007 is relatively easy to make. Musharraf already faces charges in four cases related to his period of rule. One way or another, it amounts to the same thing: putting a once untouchable general on trial. Pakistan’s powerful military did not support his return from exile in London but they would also not want to see one of their own dragged through the courts. Much has changed in his absence. The chief justice, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, with whom Musharraf feuded for most of his time in office, is about to retire. … More importantly, the army, too, is about to have a new leader. In his forthcoming book, Getting Away With Murder, the man who led the UN investigation in Bhutto’s assassination, Heraldo Muñoz, describes the outgoing army chief, General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, as a professional soldier of independent mind. Muñoz said that the general expressed doubts to him about the claim by his former boss Musharraf that Bhutto had been assassinated by the Pakistani Taliban. He also spoke fondly of Bhutto, saying she had grown as a politician. All this further muddies the waters about who was really behind her assassination. The author himself concludes that almost everyone played a part. Musharraf was ill-advised to return to Pakistan, where his political support has evaporated and where he spends his time under house arrest. Even with a new army chief and chief justice, Sharif will have to balance the demand to seek justice for emergency rule, with the needs of a military that remains the most powerful institution in the land. A presidential pardon for Musharraf, if convicted, could be one way out. Establishing the rule of law is going to take somewhat longer. The Khaleej Times, Dubai, on UN inspectors for Syria: There seems to be some understanding between the United Nations and Damascus over the issue of inspections. After delaying tactics, both the parties concerned have agreed to go ahead to probe into the allegations that Syria used chemical agents against its people. The UN team, which had been stranded in Cyprus for the last several months, is now on its way to Damascus. This is a promising development. Irrespective of its outcome, the inspections will at least kick-start a dialogue process between the powers-that-be, and then gradually lead to broadening of understanding over issues of peace and security. Under an agreement reached with Damascus, the UN team will visit three sites and see for itself whether toxic agents were used or not. The mission that had disagreement over the scope of the investigation has now got the green signal, and is limited to reporting whether chemical weapons were actually used and which ones, but it will not determine responsibility for any attacks. Though half-hearted, it could be the way to go ahead. The 10-member investigating team under Swedish arms expert Ake Sellstroem has a responsibility to deliver and that shouldn’t be restricted to just probing into a past event. The thrust of the mission should be to reach the real victims and expose the principal characters behind the usage of chemical agents, if any. This in no way in contravention to the agreed terms and conditions, but would be an apt way out to suggest measures to read the crises in its totality. Syrians have already witnessed 100,000 casualties since the uprising begun, and President Bashar Al Assad now sits on the mounds of the dead and destructed property. The war-torn country is far from being governed and it is no more than battlefields for rebels and pro-Assad forces. Damascus’ claim that it has nothing to hide is up for a litmus test.

People still around today who were here then talk in reverential tones about the Elvis concert at Hobart Arena. Cars lined up and down 25-A all the way to Tipp City (or Vandalia or Dayton, depending on who is telling the story). There was no Interstate 75 then, so 25-A (or Dixie Highway or Route 25 as it was then known) was just about the only way to get to town. That’s pretty cool, but it wasn’t anywhere the size and scope of this weekend. We’ve survived presidents and presidential candidates coming to town and we all know what kind of damage those kinds of people can do. Most of the preparation is finished, it’s time to bring the gentleman on. Relax, obey the rules, have a good time and then take Sunday and Monday to recover. On Tuesday, we’ll all be back to normal – and I’ll be able to take the bike path to work again.

Yosemite fire ‘poses every challenge there can be’ the west side of Mount Baldy, where two years of drought have created tinder-dry conditions. “Winds are increasing, so it’s going to be very challenging,” said Bjorn Frederickson, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service. The fire continues burning in the remote wilderness area of Yosemite, but park spokesman Tom Medena said it’s edging closer to the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, the source of San Francisco’s famously pure drinking water. Despite ash falling like snowflakes on the reservoir and a thick haze of smoke limiting visibility to 100 feet, the quality of the water piped to the city 150 miles away is still good, say officials with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. The city’s hydroelectric power generated by the system has been interrupted by the fire, forcing the utility to spend $600,000 buying power on the open market. Park employees are continuing their efforts to protect two groves of giant sequoias that are unique the region by cutting brush and setting sprinklers, Medena said. The fire has consumed more than 209 square miles of picturesque forests. Officials estimate containment at just 7 percent. “It’s slowing down a bit, but it’s still growing,” Frederickson said. Fire lines near Ponderosa Hills and Twain Hart are being cut
miles ahead of the blaze in locations where fire officials hope they will help protect the communities should the fire jump containment lines. “There is a huge focus in those areas in terms of air support and crews on the ground building fire lines to protect those communities. We’re facing difficult conditions and extremely challenging weather,” Frederickson said. The high winds and movement of the fire from bone-dry brush on the ground to 100-foot oak and pine treetops have created dire conditions. “A crown fire is much more difficult to fight,” said Daniel Berlant of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. “Our firefighters are on the ground having to spray up.” The blaze sweeping across steep, rugged river canyons quickly has become one of the biggest in California history, thanks in part to extremely dry conditions caused by a lack of snow and rainfall this year. Investigators are trying to determine how the fire started Aug. 17, days before lightning storms swept through the region and sparked other, smaller blazes. The fire is the most critical of a dozen burning across California, officials say. More than 12 helicopters and a halfdozen fixed wing tankers are dropping water and retardant from the air, and 2,800 firefighters are on the ground.
Julie Harris, Broadway star, dies at 87 NEW YORK (AP) — Julie Harris, one of Broadway’s most honored performers, whose roles ranged from the flamboyant Sally Bowles in “I Am a Camera” to the reclusive Emily Dickinson in “The Belle of Amherst,” died Saturday. She was 87. Harris died at her West Chatham, Mass., home of congestive heart failure, actress and family friend Francesca James said. Harris won five Tony Awards for best actress in a play, displaying a virtuosity that enabled her to portray an astonishing gallery of women during a theater career that spanned almost 60 years and included such plays as “The Member of the Wedding” (1952), “The Lark” (1955), “Forty Carats” (1968) and “The Last of Mrs. Lincoln” (1972). She was honored again with a sixth Tony, a special lifetime achievement award in 2002. Her record is up against Audra McDonald, with five competitive Tonys, and Angela Lansbury with four Tonys in the best actress-musical category and one for best supporting actress in a play. Harris had suffered a stroke in 2001 while she was in Chicago appearing in a production of Claudia Allen’s “Fossils.” She suffered another stroke in 2010, James said. “I’m still in sort of a place of shock,” said James, who appeared in daytime soap operas “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.” “She was, really, the greatest influence in my life,” said James, who had known Harris for about 50 years. Television viewers knew Harris as the free-spirited Lilimae Clements on the prime-time soap opera “Knots Landing.” In the movies, she was James Dean’s romantic co-star in “East of Eden” (1955), and had roles in such films as “Requiem for a Heavyweight” (1962), “The Haunting” (1963) and “Reflections in a Golden Eye” (1967). Yet Harris’ biggest successes and most satisfying moments have been on stage. “The theater has been my church,” the actress once said. “I don’t
hesitate to say that I found God in the theater.” The 5-foot-4 Harris, blue-eyed with delicate features and reddish-gold hair, made her Broadway debut in 1945 in a short-lived play called “It’s a Gift.” Five years later, at the age of 24, Harris was cast as Frankie, a lonely 12-yearold tomboy on the brink of adolescence, in “The Member of the Wedding,” Carson McCullers’ stage version of her wistful novel. The critics raved about Harris, with Brooks Atkinson in The New York Times calling her performance “extraordinary — vibrant, full of anguish and elation.” “That play was really the beginning of everything big for me,” Harris had said. The actress appeared in the 1952 film version, too, with her original Broadway co-stars, Ethel Waters and Brandon De Wilde, and received an Academy Award nomination. Harris won her first Tony Award for playing Sally Bowles, the confirmed hedonist in “I Am a Camera,” adapted by John van Druten from Christopher Isherwood’s “Berlin Stories.” The play later became the stage and screen musical “Cabaret.” In her second Tony-winning performance, Harris played a much more spiritual character, Joan of Arc in Lillian Hellman’s adaptation of Jean Anouilh’s “The Lark.” The play had a six-month run, primarily because of the notices for Harris. The actress was something of a critics’ darling, getting good reviews even when her plays were less-well received. These included such work as “Marathon ‘33,” ”Ready When You Are, C.B.!” and even a musical, “Skyscraper,” adapted from an Elmer Rice play, “Dream Girl.” Her third Tony came for her work in “Forty Carats,” a frothy French comedy about an older woman and a younger man. It was a big hit, running nearly two years. Harris won her last two Tonys for playing historical figures — Mary Todd Lincoln in “The Last of
Mrs. Lincoln” and poet Emily Dickinson in “The Belle of Amherst” by William Luce. The latter, a one-woman show, became something of an annuity for Harris, a play she would take around the country at various times in her career. The actress liked to tour, even going out on the road in such plays as “Driving Miss Daisy” and “Lettice & Lovage” after they had been done in New York with other stars. Harris’ last Broadway appearances were in revivals, playing the domineering mother in a Roundabout Theatre Company production of “The Glass Menagerie” (1994) and then “The Gin Game” with Charles Durning for the National Actors Theatre in 1997. In 2005, she was one of five performers to receive Kennedy Center honors. Harris was born on Dec. 2, 1925, in Grosse Pointe, Mich., the daughter of an investment banker. She grew up fascinated by movies, later saying she thought of herself as plainlooking and turned to acting as a way of becoming other persons. She made her stage debut at the Grosse Pointe Country Day School in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” at age 14. In the years that followed, she studied drama in finishing school, prep school, Yale University and the Actor’s Studio. Before “Knots Landing,” Harris made numerous guest-starring television appearances on dramas and was a regular on two quickly canceled series — “Thicker Than Water” in 1973 and “The Family Holvak” in 1975. Her Emmys were for performances in two “Hallmark Hall of Fame” presentations: “Little Moon of Alban” in 1958 and “Victoria Regina” in 1961. Harris was married three times, to lawyer Jay I. Julian, stage manager Manning Gurian and writer William Erwin Carroll. She had one son, Peter Alston Gurian. Funeral arrangements are pending.
GROVELAND, Calif. (AP) — At Ike Bunney’s dude ranch near the Sierra community of Tuolumne City, all creatures have been evacuated as firefighters brace for an intense battle to keep a wildfire raging north of Yosemite National Park out of mountain communities. “We’ve already evacuated the horses,” said Bunney, who was keeping an eye on his Slide Mountain Guest Ranch on Sunday. “I think they’re worried about the fire sparking over these hills.” As fire leapfrogs across the vast, picturesque Sierra forests, moving from one treetop to the next, residents in the fire’s path are moving animals and children to safety. The fire has moved northeast away from Groveland, where smoke gave away to blue skies Sunday. But at Tuolumne City’s Black Oak Casino in Tuolumne City, the slot machines were quiet as emergency workers took over nearly all of the resort’s 148 hotel rooms. “The casino is empty,” said casino employee Jessie Dean, who left her four children at relatives’ homes in the Central Valley. “Technically, the casino is open, but there’s nobody there.” Hundreds of firefighters were deployed Sunday to protect Tuolumne City and other communities in the path of the Rim Fire. Eight fire trucks and four bulldozers were deployed near Bunney’s ranch on

Two years after Irene, Vermont’s recovery nears end WALLINGFORD, Vt. (AP) — Two years after Tropical Storm Irene washed 10 acres of crops and an entire field of top soil down a valley between the Vermont mountains, Evening Song Farm is distributing produce again. But it will be years, if ever, before the ground is productive again. Kara Fitzgerald and Ryan WoodBeauchamp now grow their crops on a hillside about a mile away. The soil there is damp and not as good as the bottom land along the river, but with careful attention, over time, it can get better. Like thousands of Vermonters whose lives were forever changed by Irene, the 28-year-old vegetable farmers picked themselves up with help from strangers, a small amount of government assistance and a series of loans. And work. Hard, never-ending work. “In some ways we feel like the storm was yesterday. Our recovery is still full-on,” Fitzgerald said one recent morning as she took a break from picking carrots. “It was a real good opportunity to throw in the towel.” Two summers after Irene dropped up to 11 inches of rain on parts of the Green Mountains, the state is nearing the end of its official recovery. The state and federal governments have spent more than $565 million to help Vermont recover — not including private donations and money people spent on their own — and the final bill is nowhere near ready to be counted. There are still hundreds of people and businesses whose recovery is still in progress and some are still looking for permanent homes. Nevertheless, a series of celebrations and commemorations are planned for next week, starting on

Two years after Tropical Storm Irene dropped up to 11 inches of rain on parts of the Green Mountains, the state is nearing the end of its official recovery. The state and federal governments have spent hundreds of millions of dollars on the repairs, not including private donations and money people spent on their own recovery, and the final bill is nowhere near ready to be counted.
Wednesday’s anniversary. “It doesn’t mean there isn’t more work to do,” said Gov. Peter Shumlin, who will visit the hardhit community of Wilmington on Wednesday and eat chili at Dot’s, an iconic local restaurant all but destroyed by the storm but now a potent symbol of the town’s resilience. “We’re going to make sure everybody gets the help they need and they will.” When Irene roared up the coast, it killed at least 46 people in 13 states with a handful more in the Caribbean. Many in the Northeast breathed a sigh of relief when the
New York City area was largely spared. But then the storm settled over the Green Mountains, and Irene became the biggest natural disaster to hit Vermont since an epic 1927 flood. Irene killed six in Vermont, left thousands homeless and damaged or destroyed more than 200 bridges and 500 miles of highway. Of the state’s 251 towns, 225 had infrastructure damage. Thirteen communities were cut off from the outside world after flooding washed out roads, electricity and telephone communica-
tion. National Guard helicopters spent days ferrying supplies to stranded residents. When the waters receded at last, the state created a cabinet-level position to focus on recovery and opened nine long-term offices to help residents. More than 150 cases remain open. Shumlin will stop in Waterbury on Thursday to talk about the state office complex, most of which was abandoned after the storm overflowed the Winooski River. The state has a $124 million plan for the complex that is waiting for funding.
Once housed in a leased building on the edge of the complex, the Hunger Mountain Children’s Center is getting ready (OTCBB:GTRY) to start its third school year in a church that was supposed to be a temporary space. Although the day care’s previous home only had water in the basement, the building remains empty, caught up in planning. The center hopes to buy their old building and another next door so it can expand from its current enrollment of about 35 children, said business manager Amanda Olney. “As devastating as it was to have to move all of our stuff out of that building and into the church and transition there, if it works and we are able to go back and expand, it really has worked out for us,” Olney said. Evening Song Farm was in just its first season when Irene hit, forcing Fitzgerald and WoodBeauchamp to evacuate. When they returned the next day, their house and barn were fine but a summer’s worth of crops was gone. “We lost everything down there. We had taken out a lot of loans to start the first farm. All our financial ability was now down the river,” Fitzgerald said. Within days they’d plowed up a fresh half-acre to plant garlic before the season ended and borrowed land to plant fast-growing greens for their customers. “No one expected anything, but it was mostly for us to feel like we were still alive,” Fitzgerald said. Fitzgerald and Wood-Beauchamp have since bought a neighboring plot. They’re building a house, improving drainage and adding nutrients to the soil in hopes of better yields in future years.

Brain injury patients fight for therapy time and money lost brainpower — beyond what insurance companies cover. Insurers face the dilemma of trying to hold the line on therapy costs, especially if it appears that patients have reached a plateau in their recoveries, amid mixed evidence about what works best. And families often learn that insurance coverage is ending just as they see substantial progress in their loved ones. Getting rehab right is crucial: A traumatic brain injury can rob patients of memory, thinking skills, emotional regulation and even motor control of their arms and legs. High-profile successes, such as former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, draw attention to the potential of cognitive rehabilitation, but also to the fact that most people can’t afford the level of care she received. A 2011 U.S. Institute of Medicine report concluded that rehab is often “incomplete” for those with severe brain injuries and that “many patients may not receive prescribed treatments due to limitations in payer plans.” “You’re dooming people to social Darwinism — who has (access to care) and who doesn’t,” said Pete
SHNS — The thought of consuming nothing but the juice of green leafy vegetables for five days terrified Jamie Hickok, but she couldn’t ignore the promise of more energy, weight loss and a glowing complexion. “The first day I was like, ‘Oh, dear God,’ because the green juice tastes like what you smell when the lawn has been mowed,” Hickok said. “Now I call it liquid gold.” Since Hickok’s first “cleanse” in April, the 37-yearold Minneapolis woman has sipped many gallons of “liquid gold.” Pulverizing stalks of kale and bunches of spinach into juice is nothing new. Remember Jack LaLanne’s infomercials? But juicing is seeing a resurgence. Green smoothies are the new Starbucks for celebrities in New York and Los Angeles, where juice bars are a dime a dozen. Wall Street investors are pouring money into companies that promise to take the guesswork out of juice detox programs. New businesses hawk freshpressed nectars by the bottle. For many, juicing is the diet du jour. Yet some health experts aren’t convinced. “The intense interest around juicing is concerning,” said Cassie Bjork, a registered dietitian (www. dietitiancassie.com). “There are a lot of good nutrients in the juice, but the problem is, it’s not balanced.” But supporters are legion, pushing the practice into the mainstream. “It’s blown up,” said Arturo Miles, who oversees the Juice Bar at the Wedge Community Co-op in Minneapolis. “People want to detox, prevent cancer, and juicing is a fast way to absorb nutrients.” While the juicing industry’s worth is hard to gauge, sales are surging. More than $215 million worth of home juice extractors were sold in 2012, up 71 percent over the year before, according to market-research firm NPD Group. BluePrint Juice Co. grosses more than $20 million a year by delivering prepackaged juices to your doorstep. Individual bottles cost between $8 and $10 at stores such as Whole Foods. Who’s juicing? Everyone from parents who sneak carrots into their kids’ apple juice to those who undergo
juice-only detoxes for several days at a time. Proponents claim that when juice is extracted from fruits and vegetables — leaving behind the fibrous pulp — the vitamins, minerals and enzymes are more quickly absorbed. Juicing fanatics claim the benefits include weight loss, elimination of toxins, clearer skin and increased energy. “Some people think it’s kind of a hippie thing, but I feel better when I’m drinking my veggies rather than eating them,” said Michele Kamenar, 44, of Eagan, Minn., who makes a juice for breakfast four days a week, especially when local produce is available. “I get a great boost — feel more alert, less bloated and more satiated.” Juicing can be a good way to get fruits and vegetables into a diet, but there’s no sound scientific evidence that it’s any healthier than eating whole fruits and vegetables, said Jennifer Nelson, director of clinical nutrition for the Mayo Clinic. Other nutritionists worry that juicing is being promoted as a quick way to lose weight. Juicing too much can send a rush of sugar into the bloodstream, Bjork said, which spikes blood-sugar levels and is destructive to metabolism. Vegetable-only juicing is a lot better, but Bjork still prefers a balanced smoothie with a healthy fat, like avocado. Skepticism aside, juicing fans continue to replace certain meals — especially breakfast — with green juice. Tracy Tabery-Weller has given up her usual morning coffee and scones. The 40-year-old Minneapolis woman said juice and smoothies are a good way to mix vegetables into her kids’ diets. When she’s traveling for work, juice bars save her from having to dine out. “I feel good about putting real nutrients in my body instead of taking vitamins or pills,” she said. Despite the warnings, new companies are getting into the juicing frenzy, each claiming that their juice is better than the others. Mike Haugen quietly started his Eden Prairie, Minn., juice delivery service, the Juice Works, in 2009 for people who want the benefits of juicing but don’t want to do the work themselves. His business has quadrupled.
Juice cleansing is a hit, but is it truly healthy?
SHNS Photo Ellie Cizek and her brother, Zach, took the family golden retrievers for a run recently. “I want my independence back,” she said.
Klinkhammer of the Brain Injury Alliance of Minnesota, an advocacy organization. To a visitor’s eye, Cizek is every bit the smiling young woman who made friends easily at Cretin-Derham Hall High School in St. Paul and then at the University of Kansas. The accident left her in a coma for days and in an amnesia-like state until April. The physical scars have
faded, but there are gaps in her planning and reasoning skills, and doctors have recommended inpatient rehab services. “She can communicate and understand, but when she tries to plan an event or plan into the future, it just doesn’t quite stick,” said her father, Bill Cizek. Ellie Cizek participates in group therapy at Courage Center in Golden Valley,
Minn., but her parents want her to return to Quality Living Inc., in Omaha, Neb., one of the only in-patient rehab centers for traumatic brain injuries in the Midwest, so she can receive more intensive services during this critical period of healing. The fact that Cizek can walk and talk has weighed against her, because her insurer required some form
of physical disability in addition to her cognitive problems to approve prolonged inpatient therapy. Cognitive rehabilitation is an umbrella term for an approach that includes speech, occupational and physical therapy, and other techniques that coax injured portions of the brain to repair themselves or to kickstart other parts of the brain to take over. Research on the effectiveness of cognitive rehab has accelerated since the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, where so many soldiers suffered brain injuries from roadside bombs that traumatic brain injury has been dubbed the “signature injury” of those conflicts. Even so, experts say there is limited evidence about its effectiveness, the number of sessions that are most effective and whether inpatient care is superior. While some people have improved their thinking and reasoning skills years after brain injuries, most neurological recovery tends to occur in the first 18 to 24 months, said Ruth Gromek, who manages outpatient brain injury rehab services at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis.

The way it’s been explained to her family, 20-year-old Ellie Cizek has about 18 months to regain the memory and thinking skills she lost on the Colorado ski slopes in January, when she glanced off a chairlift post and slammed headfirst into a tree. So imagine their frustration this spring when, only four months into her recovery from a traumatic brain injury, her health insurer denied further care at a specialized rehabilitation center in Omaha and the family had to bring Cizek home to St. Paul. “Insurance is pretty mean to brain-injured patients,” Cizek’s sister, Josie, said recently as the family prepared a fundraiser to pay for her care. It’s a common refrain for patients like Cizek — and a growing concern in the United States, where the concussive force of sport injuries, car crashes and other accidents causes 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries each year, including 90,000 severe enough to cause long-term disability. Doctors often recommend cognitive rehabilitation — a set of therapies to retrain patients’ brains and restore

ARLO & JANIS
BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a wonderful day to party and schmooze with others. You'll enjoy hanging out with family members, partners and close friends. (You're even friendly with members of the general public.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Things will go well at work today because it's easy to get along with coworkers. The only downside is that you would rather play than work. Be careful about overdoing anything. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Today is party city! Enjoy sports events, the arts, movies, the theater, playful times with children and romantic flirtations. Live it up! CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Entertain at home today. In fact, you'll enjoy making your home look more attractive. (Always easy to do with the threat of guests arriving!) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You can make money from your words today, which is why this is a great day for teaching, acting, writing, promoting and talking. Relations with neighbors and relatives are friendly. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Business and commerce are favored today because the money is flowing! Trust your moneymaking ideas. If shopping, guard against extravagance. Keep your receipts. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You feel warm and friendly to everyone. In fact, all kinds of group gatherings will appeal because you're confident as well as sociable. "Jump in! The water's fine!" SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a busy social time for you; however, today you feel quietly pleased with yourself. Seek out solitude in beautiful surroundings if you can so that you can mellow out. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) All kinds of meetings -- classes, casual get-togethers or conferences -- will be successful today, because you're in a friendly, easygoing mood. In particular, you will like creative encounters with talented people. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might develop a crush on your boss or someone in a position of authority today. In turn, people in authority think you look great! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Travel plans are exciting. Similarly, some of you have high hopes for exploring opportunities in publishing, higher education, the media, medicine and the law. Looking good! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Keep your pockets open, because gifts, goodies and favors from others can come your way today. However, if you have to decide how to share something, don't give away the farm. YOU BORN TODAY You identify with the common person - the man on the street. This is why you're aware of inequities in society and the suffering of those who are deprived. Some of you are pragmatic about this; most of you are idealistic and search for ways to improve social conditions. You care. This year a change might take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2004. Birthdate of Alice Coltrane, pianist/composer; Cesar Millan, dog trainer; Albert Sabin, scientist.

TODAY IN HISTORY
(AP) — Today is Monday, Aug. 26, the 238th day of 2013. There are 127 days left in the year. On this date: In 1883, the island volcano Krakatoa began cataclysmic eruptions, leading to a massive explosion the following day. In 1913, the newly completed Keokuk Dam in Iowa was dedicated. In 1936, the Anglo-Egyptian Treaty, calling for most British troops to leave Egypt, was signed in Montreux, Switzerland. (It was abrogated by Egypt in 1951.) In 1958, Alaskans went to the polls to overwhelmingly vote in favor of statehood. In 1961, the original Hockey Hall of Fame was opened in Toronto. In 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson was nominated for a term of office in his own right at the Democratic National Convention in Atlantic City, N.J. In 1968, the Democratic National Convention opened in Chicago. In 1971, New Jersey Gov. William T. Cahill announced that the New York Giants football team had agreed to leave Yankee Stadium for a new sports complex to be built in East Rutherford. In 1972, the summer Olympics games opened in Munich, West Germany. In 1986, in the so-called preppie murder case, 18-year-old Jennifer Levin was found strangled in New York's Central Park; Robert Chambers later pleaded guilty to manslaughter and served 15 years in prison. In 1993, Dorothea Puente was convicted in Monterey, Calif., of murdering three of her boardinghouse tenants; she was later sentenced to life without parole.

Insurgent attacks in Iraq kill at least 41 BAGHDAD (AP) — Insurgents bent on destabilizing Iraq killed at least 41 people in numerous attacks scattered around the country on Sunday, striking targets as varied as a coffee shop, a wedding party convoy and a carload of off-duty soldiers. The attacks are part of a months-long wave of killing that is the country’s worst spate of bloodshed since 2008. The violence is calling into question the security forces’ ability to protect the country and raising fears that Iraq’s sectarian and ethnic divisions are pushing it back toward the brink of civil war. One of the day’s boldest attacks happened near the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, where militants set up a fake security checkpoint, captured five soldiers and shot them dead, a police officer said. The soldiers were dressed in civilian clothes and returning to base in a taxi. Inside Mosul, other gunmen in a speeding car shot and killed a grocer, he said, though the motive was not immediately clear. The grocer was a member of the Shabak ethnic group, which has its own distinct language and religious
beliefs. Mosul, a former insurgent stronghold, is about 360 kilometers (220 miles) northwest of Baghdad. Another police officer said a car bomb exploded as a judge drove past in the northern town of Balad, killing three nurses and a man who had been walking nearby. Thirteen other people were wounded, including the judge, his brother and a driver, he added. Attacks have been on the rise in Iraq since a deadly security crackdown in April on a Sunni protest camp. More than 3,000 people have been killed in violence during the past few months, raising fears the country could see an even deadlier, sectarian round of bloodshed similar to what brought the country to the edge of civil war in 2006 and 2007. Many of Sunday’s victims were civilians going about their normal business despite the rising risks. In the town of Madain, about 25 kilometers (15 miles) southeast of Baghdad, a car bomb explosion killed four and wounded 12, another police officer said. Authorities reported that another bomb there struck a group of young people
playing soccer, killing four and wounding 13. Multiple blasts hit the city of Baqouba, about 60 kilometers (35 miles) northeast of Baghdad. Police said one bomb exploded near a police officer’s house, killing his 8-year old son and wounding 11 other people, police said. The police officer was unharmed. Later in the day, a parked car bomb went off in a residential area in the city, killing seven and wounding 34. Yet another bomb exploded next to a wedding party convoy, killing four and wounding 17, police said. In the capital Baghdad, a car bomb at a market in the southeastern and largely Shiite neighborhood of al-Ameen killed three civilians and wounded 13 others, authorities said. Three other civilians were killed and six wounded when a bomb attached to a car exploded while passing through the capital’s eastern Zayona neighborhood, police said. Another bomb went off in a commercial area in the western Ghazaliya area, killing two people and wounding seven others, officials said.

Syria agrees to UN probe of purported attacks DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria reached an agreement with the United Nations on Sunday to allow a team of international experts to visit the site of alleged chemical weapons attacks last week outside Damascus, state media and the U.N. said. A statement on Syrian state television said Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem and U.N. disarmament chief Angela Kane struck the deal during talks in Damascus, and that the two sides are working to finalize the date and time of the visit. The world body said that a team of U.N. experts already in Syria has been instructed to focus on investigating the purported attack on Wednesday. The mission “is preparing to conduct on-site fact-finding activities’” on Monday, U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said in a statement. Anti-government activists and Doctors Without Borders say that more than 300 people were killed in the alleged toxic gas attack on the eastern suburbs of the Syrian capital. Images purporting to show the aftermath of the attack are filled with people gasping for breath and dead children unmarked by any wounds. The eastern Ghouta area where the attack took place is under opposition-control, which makes arranging a trip across the front lines difficult. Rebels and the main Western-back opposition group have said they would guarantee access and the safety of a U.N. team to facilitate an investigation. Nesirky said the Syrian government “affirmed that it will provide the necessary cooperation, including the observance of the cessation of hostilities at the locations related to the incident.” He added that U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon “would like to reiterate that all relevant parties equally share the responsibility of cooperating in urgently generating a safe environment for the mission to do its job efficiently and providing all necessary information.” The deal appears to meet the demands of the world powers, including
the U.S., Britain, France and Russia, all of whom called on the Syrian government to cooperate with the U.N. and grant inspectors access to the sites. Confirming whether chemical weapons were indeed used carries enormous stakes, and could play a large role in determining the future course of Syria’s civil war. It has reinvigorated debate about the possible use of foreign military action in the conflict. Last week, France said that if an independent investigation confirms that chemical weapons were indeed employed, then military force could be used in Syria. The U.S. Navy has sent a fourth warship armed with ballistic missiles into the eastern Mediterranean Sea, closer to Syria, as President Barack Obama considers a military response. A senior administration official said Sunday that the U.S. has “very little doubt” that chemical weapons were used in Wednesday’s attack. The official said the U.S. intelligence community based its assessment, which was given to the White House, on “the reported number of victims, reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured” and witness accounts. That appeared to align with French assessments as well. The U.S. official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter. In Paris, French President Francois Hollande said a “body of evidence” suggests that chemical weapons were used during Wednesday’s attacks, and that Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime was most likely behind it. According to a statement Sunday from his office, Hollande said “everything” leads France to believe the regime was behind the attack. It didn’t elaborate. The U.N. team that will carry out the investigation arrived in Syria last week to look into three earlier purported chemical attacks. The mission is led by Swedish expert Ake Sellstrom.

Rev. Al Sharpton,left, Martin Luther King, III, center, start the march at Lincoln Memorial during the rally to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, Saturday. Tens of thousands of people marched to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial and down the National Mall on Saturday, to commemorate King’s famous “”I Have a Dream” speech, made Aug. 28, 1963, during the March on Washington, and pledging that his dream includes equality for gays, Latinos, the poor and the disabled.
Youth see march anniversary as chance to lead WASHINGTON (AP) — Mary-Pat Hector of Atlanta operates much like a 1960s civil rights activist as she plans for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Her cell phone rings constantly as she confirms event details, tweaks the draft of the speech she’ll give at a rally, and prepares for a presentation. Mary-Pat is 15 years old. Just as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. led the Montgomery Bus Boycott at age 26, and Rep. John Lewis helped to lead freedom rides at 23, young Americans like Mary-Pat are not letting age get in the way as they seek more than a contributing role in the push for social reform. Young people are eager to influence this year’s March on Washington, says Jessica Brown, national coordinator for the Black Youth Vote coalition, which organized several youth events around Saturday’s march to the Lincoln Memorial. “Of course you have the seasoned people who are there, and they are always rightfully going to have their position,” Brown said. “But you’re starting to see the pickup of the youth saying, ‘This is our time, this is our moment, this is the opportunity we have to show the world and the nation, that we’re here and we’re ready to work and organize to get things done.’” In 1963, those “seasoned people” were A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin, who birthed the idea of a Washington march to appeal for jobs and justice, and ultimately attracted 250,000 people. Today, the Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III, who were 8 and 5 years old, respectively, in 1963, are the veterans who brought thousands to the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday. The King Center also has organized a ceremony on Wednesday, the actual march
anniversary, when President Barack Obama will speak. Friday night, students and young adults gathered at Howard University in Washington for a mass meeting and rally ahead of Saturday’s march — activity patterned after the student rallies that were held before major demonstrations during the civil rights movement. Anthony Miller, president of the Howard University Student Association, said students recognize the historical significance, and some are using this moment to express their continuing anger over the shooting death of black Florida teen Trayvon Martin. “They want to be able to do something positive and something that will uplift this situation and really bring it to light,” Miller says. Students want “to effect a positive change and push this country in the right direction,” he said, “And I think this is an excellent opportunity.” Janaye Ingram, who runs the Washington office of Sharpton’s National Action Network, spent hours on the phone recruiting students. “This is their moment to make a change. It’s reminiscent of what happened in the ’60s, when the movement was led by them,” she said. Students and other young people made significant contributions to the civil rights movement. In 1957 a group of black students, later called the Little Rock Nine, helped integrate all-white Central High School in Arkansas. The Freedom Riders challenged segregation by riding buses through the South in integrated pairs. There were numerous others who held sit-ins at restaurant counters, skipped school to participate in marches and were attacked by police dogs and water cannons during public demonstrations.
U.S. overhauls process for recognizing Indian tribes KENT, Conn. (AP) — His tribe once controlled huge swaths of what is now New York and Connecticut, but the shrunken reservation presided over by Alan Russell today hosts little more than four mostly dilapidated homes and a pair of rattlesnake dens. The Schaghticoke Indian Tribe leader believes its fortunes may soon be improving. As the U.S. Interior Department overhauls its rules for recognizing American Indian tribes, a nod from the federal government appears within reach, potentially bolstering its claims to surrounding land and opening the door to a tribal-owned casino. “It’s the future generations we’re fighting for,” Russell said. The rules floated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, intended to streamline the approval process, are seen by some as lowering the bar through changes such as one requiring that tribes demonstrate political continuity since 1934 and not “first contact” with European settlers. Across the country, the push is setting up battles with host

communities and already recognized tribes who fear upheaval. In Kent, a small Berkshires Mountains town with one of New England’s oldest covered bridges, residents have been calling the selectman’s office with their concerns. The tribe claims land including property held by the Kent School, a boarding school, and many residents put up their own money a decade ago to fight a recognition bid
by another faction of the Schaghticokes. Members of the state’s congressional delegation also have been in touch with the first selectman, Bruce Adams, who said he fears court battles over land claims and the possibility the tribe would open its own businesses as a sovereign nation within town boundaries. “Everybody is on board that we have to do what we can to prevent this from happening,” he said.

Brewers blank Reds 3-1 CINCINNATI (AP) — When Marco Estrada’s changeup is working, he’ll get a lot of out-front swings that result in weak popups. His fastball seems a lot harder to hit, too. The Cincinnati Reds rarely hit anything hard off Estrada on Sunday, managing only one single in seven shutout innings while the Milwaukee Brewers held on for a 3-1 victory. With the way Estrada was throwing, Caleb Gindl’s two-run homer was more than enough. His best pitch made a big difference. “The changeup kept working, so I kept throwing it,” Estrada said. “I got away with
a couple, but I kept it down most of the time.” The Brewers took two of three from the Reds, who remain right behind Pittsburgh and St. Louis in the NL Central race. Estrada (6-4) gave up ShinSoo Choo’s leadoff single in the first inning, and then left the Reds swinging at nothing. He walked two, fanned a season-high nine and retired 10 batters on popups or fly balls — usually a risky thing in homer-friendly Great American Ball Park. “He’s one of those guys that if he makes his pitches, he’ll have success,” Reds outfielder Jay Bruce said. “If he • See REDS on page 14

Troy senior Zach Kendall recently verbally committed to Bowling Green State University.
Bound for Bowling Green Troy’s Kendall commits to Falcons By Colin Foster
Associate Sports Editor email@example.com
After a superb junior season with the Troy baseball team and great showing during his summer stint with the Raptor Elite, pitcher Zach Kendall began drawing interest from several colleges. Kendall was getting looked at by Lake Erie, Ball State, Wright State, Akron, Morehead State, Marshall and Tiffin. But in the end, the opportunity to pitch for Bowling Green State University was hard to pass up. He toured the campus on Aug. 20 and gave his verbal commitment to become a member of the Falcons, who won the 2013 MidAmerican Conference title. “The campus is really nice,” Kendall said. “Right when we got
there, the coaches were really nice. We rode around with them all day; they showed us the campus. They’re building new dorms and they have some nice facilities. It’s really nice. “I really like the coaches. The campus was cool, it was big. I liked the mandatory six hour study tables they have for baseball players … and they win.” And Kendall, a senior at Troy High School, will go in next year and be expected to compete for time in the rotation right away. The Falcons lost 12 seniors off last years’ team, and seven of them were pitchers. Kendall said he is leaning toward majoring in education, but is undecided at this point. He said getting the decision out of the way now was a big weight off his shoulders.
For now, though, his focus will turn to academics and getting stronger. During his junior season, Kendall had the second highest strikeout total in the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division with 69. He had an earned run average of 2.35 in 11 games. Over the summer, Kendall threw a no hitter with the Raptor Elite. Last year, Kendall had two wins and a save in the Division I sectional tournament. His complete game, four hitter against stateranked Centerville propelled Troy a sectional title. If everything goes according to plan this spring, Kendall said he thinks the Trojans may take it a step farther. “I think were going to be better than we were last year … hopefully,” he said. Kendall will sign his letter of intent in November.
JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Oscar Pistorius’ character, his temper and his use of guns are expected to be examined in his murder trial for the killing of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, based on the prosecution’s list of witnesses. Members of Oscar Pistorius’ family, an ex-girlfriend, some of his friends and neighbors, men connected to firearms clubs, a professional cage fighter, a boxer and a host of police specialists and experts are listed as prosecution witnesses for the double-amputee Olympian’s murder trial next year. The Associated Press takes a closer look at some of the 107 state witnesses after Pistorius was indicted on a charge of premeditated murder for the killing of Steenkamp. His trial is set to start on March 3, 2014. • First on the scene Pistorius said in an affidavit, his only testimony so far, that Johan Stander was the first person he phoned after he shot Steenkamp in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14. He asked Stander to call an ambulance. Stander, who Pistorius described as an administrator of the gated community where the athlete lived, arrived at the house as Pistorius carried a fatally wounded Steenkamp downstairs, according to Pistorius. As the first person to talk to and to see Pistorius after the shooting, Stander’s observations of the immediate aftermath may help a judge decide whether Pistorius had minutes earlier committed murder, as prosecutors say, or made a deadly mistake — the core of the trial. • Neighbors, guards and the doctor • See PISTORIUS on page 14
Scott opens FedEx Cup playoffs with a win Stubbs homer lifts Tribe past Twins The Cleveland Indians looked like anything but a playoff contender for most of Sunday’s game against Minnesota. See Page 15
JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Masters champion Adam Scott didn’t think his good round was good enough Sunday at The Barclays. His caddie had already packed his golf clubs into a travel case. He viewed his visit to the CBS Sports tower as nothing more than a courtesy. His only hope was that the other players still on the course — Tiger Woods and Justin Rose among them — might find it as difficult to
close out a victory as Scott has over the years. “ I ’m p re tt y shocked,” Scott said after his 5-under 66 gave him a oneshot win at Liberty National. “There were so many guys out there with a chance and I really didn’t think I had much of Scott a chance. If you hang around the lead long enough, you’re going to win
some, you’re going to lose some. And this one went my way.” Scott was watching from the locker room when Rose, who had a 25-foot putt for the outright lead, ran it 5 feet by the hole and three-putted for bogey. Clubs unpacked, Scott was on his way to the range when the groans from around the 18th
green told him Woods narrowly missed his 25-foot birdie putt from off the back of the green to tie for the lead. Once on the range, a large video board showed Gary Woodland miss his third straight birdie putt from inside 10 feet. “I guess it’s different playing an hour-and-a-half in front of the leaders, the guys who have been under pressure all day than when you’re out there,” Scott said. • See SCOTT on page 15

the ball gets up in the zone. After Choo got that hit, that was generally it. He pitched a really, really good game.” Jim Henderson gave up Joey Votto’s 20th homer in the ninth inning while picking up his 21st save in 24 chances. Right-hander Greg Reynolds (0-2) made his second spot start, this time for injured left-hander Tony Cingrani. Reynolds did far better this time, limiting the Brewers to five hits in six innings, including Gindl’s homer. Jean Segura singled home another run in the seventh. With the way Estrada was pitching,
the Reds were fortunate just to hit the ball hard. Estrada fanned six in a row during one stretch. The Reds hit only one ball out of the infield from the second through the sixth innings, Zack Cozart’s routine flyout. Estrada is on his best surge of the season. He was sidelined for two months with a strained left hamstring, and has dominated since his return on Aug. 6. He’s 2-0 in four starts, allowing a total of only five earned runs. “He had great command of his changeup,” manager Ron Roenicke said. “He was throwing his curveball for strikes
down in the zone and spotted his fastball well. When he’s got his changeup going and his curve going, they have to think about it and he can get his fastball by them.” Gindl has shown a knack for noteworthy homers. He became the first in Brewers history to have a game-ending homer as his first in the majors, a solo shot in the 13th inning for a 1-0 win over Miami on July 21. On Saturday night, he had the first pinch-hit homer of his career, also a solo shot during a 6-3 loss to the Reds. He belted the fourth pitch he got from
Reynolds over the wall in right for a 2-0 lead. “It feels great,” Gindl said. “It was nice to connect with another one.” It was Reynolds’ second start this season for the Reds. Reynolds, who was Colorado’s first-round pick in 2006, also was called up from Triple-A Louisville to pitch the second game of a doubleheader on July 23 in San Francisco. Reynolds pitched at Stanford and had a lot of friends and family on hand for the game, which added to his nerves. The second time around, he was much calmer and a lot better.
Pistorius n Continued from page 13
NEIGHBORS, GUARDS & ‘THE DOCTOR’ There are 18 people, including Stander, on the state witness list connected to the Silver Woods Estate where Pistorius lived. A key part of the prosecutors’ case is that they say some of the witnesses, likely neighbors or estate workers, heard a woman scream before the gunshots. The suggestion is not only of a fight between the couple, but also that Pistorius should have known where Steenkamp was by the scream before he shot. Security guards and an unnamed doctor, who Pistorius said lived at Silver Woods and also arrived at his house soon after he shot Steenkamp, may testify. The prosecution says that Pistorius “walked into security guards” when he went downstairs carrying Steenkamp. The guards are not mentioned by Pistorius. • Family and friends Pistorius’ uncle Arnold, brother Carl and sister Aimee are all named as prosecution witnesses. It’s unclear when or if members of Pistorius’ family arrived at his home in the hours following the shooting, but the prosecution said in an initial charge sheet that the runner “said to a friend/sister that he thought it was a burglar,” claiming Pistorius talked to people close to him soon after he killed Steenkamp. Other friends of Pistorius are witnesses, including one who also lived at Silver Woods and a car dealer who says he introduced Pistorius and Steenkamp in 2012.
• Top cops and experts Nearly 50 police officers and experts could be called by the state at the trial, including 17 forensic, ballistics and crime scene specialists and a criminal psychologist. Also involved in the case are members of South Africa’s Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, which deals with national priority crimes and shows how seriously the country’s authorities are taking the case against its one-time sporting hero. Hilton Botha, the police’s former lead investigator who was dropped from the case and later left the force, will likely reappear as a state witness. • Drugs A sports medicine specialist and the head of the South African sports doping laboratory are listed as possible witnesses and may deal with any substances being taken by Pistorius amid initial claims by investigators that they found testosterone in his bedroom. Prosecutors withdrew that claim and Pistorius’ representatives identified the substance he was using as a legal herbal remedy called testis compositum. Police haven’t yet said what substances they may have found in the Olympian’s house or through tests on him. • The Ex Ex-girlfriend Samantha Taylor apparently has stories to tell
about Pistorius. She was in a car when he fired a gun through the sunroof in anger at being stopped by police at a road checkpoint, according to a South African television channel. Taylor’s mother, Trish Taylor, reportedly posted on Facebook soon after the shooting: “I am so glad Sammy is safe and sound and out of the clutches of that man. There were a few occasions when things could have gone wrong with her and his gun during the time they dated.” The comments were later removed and the Taylors have declined to comment. Mother and daughter are both prosecution witnesses. Two other women Pistorius was once involved with also are listed. • Character witnesses The Taylors, a former professional soccer player and a boxer could testify to Pistorius’ character and whether, as prosecutors may hint, he was prone to anger and possibly violence and was reckless with guns. The former soccer player, Mark Batchelor, has said that a drunken Pistorius once threatened him. The boxer, Kevin Lerena, is believed to have been with Pistorius at a Johannesburg restaurant weeks before the shooting when the athlete shot a gun accidentally under a table. The naming of two men from firearms clubs Pistorius had connections to shows that prosecutors will examine his gun history.
Defying the odds
Indians’ home runs grant wish of young fan
Stubbs’ homer lifts Indians past Twins 3-1
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians looked like anything but a playoff contender for most of Sunday’s game against Minnesota. The Indians committed four errors and made several other mistakes, both in the field and on the bases. In other words, they did just about everything a team could do to lose. As has been the case several times this season, however, manager Terry Francona’s team defied the odds. Drew Stubbs hit a tiebreaking, two-out homer in the eighth inning and the Indians overcame themselves for a 3-1 victory. “We were trying every way we could to give it away,” Stubbs said. “We played a very sloppy game, but it says a lot about this team that we were able to hang in there and pull out the win.” Second baseman Jason Kipnis, who had one of the errors and drove in a run, had a similar point of view. “When you try to lose and still win the game, that’s pretty impressive,” he said. The win moved Cleveland to within 1½ games of Oakland for the AL’s second wild-card spot as the Indians start a crucial road trip to Atlanta and Detroit that begins Tuesday. “It wasn’t pretty, but it’s a heck of a lot better when you win,” Francona said. “We know we can’t play like that, but we won and that’s what we came to do.” Twins manager Ron
Gardenhire struggled to come up with a reason for why his team lost. “I don’t know who was supposed to win the game,” he said. “I know they won it with a couple of hits, but I don’t know who was supposed to win. Sounds like we were. You make four errors, you’re not supposed to win.” Stubbs homered to dead center on a 0-1 pitch from Jared Burton (2-7) to snap a 1-all tie and lift the Indians to their fifth win in six games. Joe Smith (5-1) pitched a scoreless eighth and Chris Perez worked the ninth for his 21st save. Stubbs is making a habit of late-game saves. His two-run homer in the 14th inning on Wednesday was the key blow in a 4-1 win. “It’s just the way it goes sometimes,” he said. “There’s no real explanation for it.” Burton retired the first two hitters in the eighth before Stubbs hit his ninth home run of the season to the deepest part of the ballpark. Michael Bourn turned his routine hit to center by hustling into second for a double and scored on Nick Swisher’s single. Pitchers Scott Kazmir and Cody Allen and shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera had throwing errors while Kipnis dropped a soft line drive. The Twins failed to take advantage of the Indians’ generosity. Minnesota stranded 13 runners and was 3 for 19 with runners in scoring position. “That’s been our Achilles’ heel,” Gardenhire said.
AP PHOTO Cleveland Indians’ Drew Stubbs hits a solo home run off Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Jared Burton in the eighth inning of a baseball game on Sunday in Cleveland. Stubbs’ run broke a 1-1 tie and the Indians went on to win 3-1.
“We’ve left a lot of men out there and runners in scoring position hasn’t been a very good stat for us this year. We’ve been terrible.” Neither starter was involved in the decision. Kazmir allowed one run and struck out eight in six innings while Mike Pelfrey walked six in five innings, but held Cleveland to one run and two hits. The Indians, who stranded 12 baserunners, took a 1-0 lead in the third on Kipnis’ RBI single. Cleveland’s shoddy defense helped Minnesota tie the game in the fifth. Clete Thomas led off with a single, took second on a sacrifice and moved to third on Brian Dozier’s single. Thomas
scored when Doug Bernier pushed a bunt to the right side of the mound. Swisher fielded the ball, but no one covered first and Bernier reached with a single. Josh Willingham struck out, but Ryan Doumit walked to load the bases. The inning finally ended when Trevor Plouffe lined out to third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall. A double and Cabrera’s bad throw put runners at second and third with one out in the Twins’ fourth, but Kazmir worked out of the jam. Wilkin Ramirez flied out to shallow right field and Chris Colabello struck out. The Twins played the final game of a stretch that saw them play 27 games in 27 days.
CLEVELAND (AP) — An 8-yearold Cleveland Indians fan with cerebral palsy had a wish straight out of Hollywood: He asked two of his favorite players to hit home runs. And Carlos Santana and Jason Kipnis sure know how to follow a script. Before Saturday’s game against the Minnesota Twins, Niko Lanzarotta and his family were on the field watching the Indians take batting practice. The youngster met several players and asked Santana and Kipnis if they would hit knock one out of the park for him. How could they say no? Santana, who is Niko’s favorite player, hit a two-run homer in the first. Kipnis added a two-run shot in the third. Niko’s night was made complete when the Indians defeated the Twins 7-2. Niko and his family live in suburban Strongsville. Niko was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at eight months. The Indians, who are fighting for a playoff spot, may want to give Niko a ticket for the remainder of the reason. Cleveland has won all six games he’s attended. Niko came to the game with his parents, Mike and Kasia. It turned out to be a memorable trip for everyone. “It was an awesome experience,” Mike Lanzarotta said. “It was the best day of his life. To meet Carlos, to be that close, and for him to hit a home run. … To see your kid that happy is a great thing.” Both players were pleased they were able to grant Niko’s wish. “They told me I was their favorite player, and I promised to hit a home run for him,” Santana said. “He must be a good luck charm for us two,” said Kipnis, who broke an 0-for-19 slump earlier in the game and homered for the first time since July 21.
A-Rod, Yankees feud brings back memories of 1970s
NEW YORK (AP) — Daily threats. Blaring headlines. Charges and countercharges. The New York Yankees have been there before. And Alex Rodriguez vs. Pinstripes is nothing like the bad ol’ days of Reggie Jackson vs. Billy Martin vs. George Steinbrenner. “I don’t even know where to start with you. It was just a different social time with my issues of speaking out,” Jackson said this week. “So to pick up the phone and compare it to the Bronx Zoo where it was when I played is such a lack of understanding.” Mr. October is correct. For long-running soap opera, Rodriguez has a ways to go to match the Yankees of four decades ago, a tempest that prompted this observation from Graig Nettles: “When I was a little boy I wanted to be a ballplayer and join the circus. With the Yankees I’ve accomplished both.” But for a two-month summer miniseries, A-Rod has made a
quick impact — and even helped boost ESPN’s baseball coverage and the Yankees’ YES Network to their highest ratings this season. One could even call it “Real Ballplayers of the Bronx.” Thirteen other players accepted their drug suspensions quietly and are serving their penalties. Rodriguez appealed his 211-game ban, then appealed to fans in a public-relations battle against the Yankees and Major League Baseball. The sniping began June 25, when Rodriguez tweeted that his surgeon, Dr. Brian Kelly, gave him the go-ahead to play injury rehabilitation games. Feeling the third baseman was challenging the team’s authority to set the schedule for his return, general manager Brian Cashman told ESPN “Alex should just shut up,” underlining his comment with a profanity. That was just the start. Two months later, Cashman and Rodriguez won’t even have a
substantive conversation without lawyers.a Rodriguez challenged the team’s diagnosis of his quadriceps injury, retaining a doctor to say he wasn’t hurt — even though the physician never examined him and gave his opinion solely on the basis of a scan. He twice went on WFAN radio, intimated that Yankees President Randy Levine and Major League Baseball were in cahoots to keep him off the field and hired a blustery attorney to go on national television and accuse the team physician of misdiagnosing his hip injury Makes the conflicts of 1970s seem downright pedestrian. “This is uncharted territory. That was baseball. Whether you liked it or not, it was all about winning and what it took to win,” longtime Yankees broadcaster Suzyn Waldman said. “George and Billy fought because Billy didn’t win — or Billy did win. Or Reggie and Billy fought. It was
always baseball. Nobody signed up for this.” Lou Piniella says his 1970s Yankees didn’t have this kind of prolonged quarrel between a star and management. “I’ve never heard of a situation where a player is playing on the field and the team he’s playing with, they’re bickering back and forth,” said Piniella, now a team broadcaster. “We had some problems here and there, but no, this is a totally different story.” Martin and Jackson nearly brawled at Boston’s Fenway Park in June 1977 when the outfielder didn’t hustle after Jim Rice’s bloop that became a double, and Martin replaced him immediately with Paul Blair. When Jackson got back to the dugout, the two jawed at each other, and coaches Yogi Berra, Elston Howard and Dick Howser were needed to separate them. Thirteen months later, they were at it again. Jackson bunted against Kansas City when told
to swing away, and the Yankees suspended him for five days. By the end of the week, Martin had uttered the famous line about Jackson and Steinbrenner, “one’s a born liar, the other’s convicted,” and the first of his five terms as Yankees manager ended the next day. Rodriguez’s return nearly led to a brawl. Benches and bullpens emptied at Fenway Park on Aug. 18 when Boston’s Ryan Dempster threw a pitch behind Rodriguez’s knees, threw two more inside and struck him on his left elbow pad with the 3-0 offering. Dempster earned a fivegame suspension. It’s been a different kind of kerfuffle for the Yankees. For some, the alleged cheating by Rodriguez makes this more significant than Steinbrenner’s decision to pay gambler Howard Spira to dig up dirt on Dave Winfield. That malfeasance led the to the owner’s 2 ½-year suspension from baseball that began in 1990.

Japan beats California 6-4 for LLWS title SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — The victory lap around Lamade Stadium never gets old for Japan, nor does the players’ ritual of scooping up some souvenir dirt near the mound after another Little League World Series triumph. A perennial power in youth baseball, Japan rallied past Chula Vista, Calif., 6-4 on Sunday to win its ninth title and third in four years, the only disappointment in that recent span a loss in 2011 to Huntington Beach, Calif. Ryusei Hirooka won this one with a two-run double in the bottom of the fifth inning and Shunpei Takagi hit two solo home runs to help keep the Tokyo team undefeated in the tournament. “In all honesty, I’m really happy,” said Japan manager Masumi Omae, who also led the 2003 Japan team to the World Series title. “I definitely always dreamt about coming back to win again. To be able to trust the kids and their abilities is something I’m most proud about.” Facing one last threat in the sixth, the Japanese players erupted in glee, tossing Omae in the air near the mound after
his slick fielders had turned a game-ending double play. “Wanting to be World Series champs is all we’ve talked about for the last two years,” Takagi said. “I was thinking, just get a hit at the plate. The outcome was two homers, so I was really happy.” It was the 14th championship game for Japan and 23rd for California, which has won seven World Series titles. Giancarlo Cortez had a tworun single and Grant Holman an RBI single for Chula Vista. Trailing 4-3 after Cortez’s clutch single in the fourth, Japan tied it on Takagi’s second homer and won it when Hirooka lined a 2-2 pitch down the left-field line after not being able to sacrifice the runners up a base. “My mind was full, trying to get the bunt down,” Hirooka said. “When I didn’t get (the bunt) down, my mind was blank. I’m just so happy I could get a hit to help our team win.” California beat Westport, Conn., 12-1 in the U.S. championship game Saturday, while Japan edged Mexico 3-2 for the international title. The Americans left 12 runners on base in a game that was

there for the taking. “We left some opportunities out there, but give Japan credit,” Chula Vista manager Rick Tibbett said. “They made some great defensive plays.” Unbeaten, too, entering the game, Chula Vista struck early
to send a message that it would be a tense affair. Keyed by the shaggy-haired duo of Micah Pietila-Wiggs and Jake Espinoza at the top of the order, California scored twice in the top of the first against Japan starter Kazuki

Coach Dennis Allen said Sunday that Matt Flynn won’t play in Oakland’s preseason finale Thursday night at Seattle, opening the door for Pryor to make his first start. “It’s probably more of a precautionary measure on my part than it is anything else,” Allen said. “We’ll get a chance to see Terrelle this week with the first-unit offense up against Seattle, and we’ll see how he does.” The two quarterbacks have been engaged in an increasingly tight competition to run the Raiders offense since the beginning of training camp. Flynn has been the starter throughout camp but there has been a growing groundswell of support for Pryor as Oakland’s starting offense has struggled in the preseason. Pryor, who led four scoring drives after replacing Flynn in the second quarter Friday night in a loss to Chicago, has been the Raiders’ most effective quarterback so far. He is the team’s second leading rusher with 83 yards on 11 carries. The former Ohio State star also is pretty savvy, and he didn’t put any significance on his first start of the
Ishida to put the pressure on. Pietila-Wiggs was hit by a pitch leading off and Espinoza lined a double down the leftfield line. Pietila-Wiggs came around to score on a passed ball and Holman singled home Espinoza.
preseason. “Coach told me what the deal was, that Matt wasn’t playing on Friday and he wanted me to jump with the first team and lead them into Seattle,” Pryor said. “I’m definitely not all the way there in terms of the playbook and in terms of just being a quarterback out there. Don’t get me wrong, I can lead if I was called upon to do it. I’m just out there getting better and trying to get in synch with the guys.” Flynn was essentially handed the starting job after being acquired in a trade from Seattle during the offseason, but the 28-year-old quarterback hasn’t looked sharp. He has completed more than 70 percent of his passes but most have been checkdown throws or short-range tosses. Injuries to Oakland’s offensive line haven’t helped, either. Second-round pick Menelik Watson, who missed most of training camp with a calf injury, practiced at left tackle on Sunday and will start against the Seahawks even though he has never played the position until now. That is why many feel the athletic Pryor — who made his only NFL start during the Raiders’ final regular-season game in 2012 — might be a better fit. “That’s my goal, to be a starting
quarterback and to lead a team to wins,” Pryor said. “I won’t stop until it happens. Until it happens and keeps on happening, I’ll keep on pushing.” Allen praised Pryor following the game against Chicago, in which he threw one touchdown and ran for another, but noted the third-year quarterback is still very much a work in progress. “When you have guys who have athletic talent like he does and they work as hard as he has, guys are going to get better, and he’s improved,” Allen said of Pryor. “It’ll be a good thing to see him in another game situation against a really good defense on the road in that environment and see how he responds.” With less than two weeks until the season opener in Indianapolis, Allen is in the uniquely strange position of trying to pick a starting quarterback when one of them is unavailable. Flynn was bothered by tendinitis in his right elbow while with Seattle, and the Raiders believe it is similar to what the quarterback is dealing with now. “It’s hindered him a little bit,” Flynn said. “I don’t think it’s been a major factor when we’ve gotten into games. I just think it’s one of those things that we’ve got to manage.
BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Matt Kenseth had old tires, a sputtering gas tank and Kasey Kahne in his rearview mirror in the closing laps of a race for the third time this season. The result was the same as it was in Las Vegas, same as it was in Kansas. Kenseth won again. He held off Kahne on Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway — the third time this season the two have gone 1-2 — to reclaim some of the momentum that had escaped Kenseth of late. A strong start to the season had given Kenseth three wins in his first 11 races with Joe Gibbs Racing, and win number four came six weeks later. But he’d been in a slump of sorts heading into Bristol, with four finishes in the last six weeks of 15th or worse. The strong start followed by a mini-slump has made the year feel very choppy for Kenseth, who now has a Sprint Cup Series best five victories. “I think if you look at the beginning of the season, I think it was better than I ever could have dreamed of,” Kenseth said. “We were qualifying up front every week, we were leading tons of laps in position to win races. Sitting here in August, it feels like the year has been two years long with all the different things we’ve had happen to our race team. “The last month and a half, two months has been, I hate to say reality check because I hope this is reality all the time, but we’ve struggled just a little bit more, haven’t quite had the speed. It’s been a little bit more of a struggle.”
It didn’t seem like a struggle Saturday night as Kenseth led a race-high 149 laps then held off Kahne over a white-knuckled push to the checkered flag. Kahne first chased down Juan Pablo Montoya for second place, passing him with 17 laps to go before setting his sights on Kenseth. Although Kahne, winner of the spring race at Bristol, has two wins on the season, his place in the 12-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field isn’t a lock and a win Saturday night would have cemented his berth. So he stalked Kenseth, who inadvertently wrecked him at Watkins Glen earlier this month to send Kahne over the edge. It was the fourth time this season a JGR driver had wrecked Kahne — Kyle Busch was the villain three previous times — and Kahne posted on Twitter he was headed to JGR headquarters to speak to whomever would come outside. Now with a chance to right all those wrongs in front of him, he stalked Kenseth for at least a dozen laps around Bristol. Whatever happened was out of Kenseth’s control. “It was all about the windshield. I never even looked back,” he said. “The thing is, you can’t race any different. If someone decides to run into the back of you or whatever, it’s going to happen. There wasn’t really anything I could do differently to guard against anything or change my line or take his away because there was only one lane where my car ran good, so I just really had to look out the windshield and try to hit the marks the best I could.

how they feel. When the pressure is on you to close out, it’s much harder, and the holes become much harder and shots are far more crucial. “I feel like I’ve been given a bit of a gift,” he said. “But I’ll take it.” Scott finished at 11-under 273 and moved to a career-best No. 2 in the world. Woods suffered a back spasm on the par-5 13th hole and hooked a fairway metal so far left that it landed in a swamp on the other side of the 15th fairway. Woods dropped to all fours in pain before slowly getting up. He also dropped a shot on the 15th, and then gamely fought back with birdies on the 16th and 17th holes to get within one. His birdie putt from off the 18th green was one short turn of falling. “Thought I made it,” Woods said after his 69. Woods had all four rounds in the 60s for the first time in a year on the PGA
Tour, though it wasn’t enough. He battled stiffness in his lower back all week, which he attributed to a soft bed in his hotel room — the second straight year he has had back issues from a mattress at this event. In a brief interview with CBS Sports, he said it was “hypothetical” when asked if he would compete in the Deutsche Bank Championship, the next playoff event that starts Friday on the TPC Boston. The tournament gives its charity money to Woods’ foundation. Woods already missed the AT&T National this year, which also benefits his foundation. “I just got off and I’m not feeling my best right now,” he said. Rose wasn’t feeling that great, either. He was in position to win the tournament with a birdie putt, and the U.S. Open champion did not want to leave it short. Instead, he knocked it by farther than he imagined, the ball stayed on the high side of the cup the whole way.
“I got too aggressive,” said Rose, who closed with a 68. “I thought it was a putt to win the tournament. It’s tough to take.” Kevin Chappell had a two-shot lead after a birdie on the 10th hole, but then played the next seven holes in 7-over par and closed with a 76. Woodland had a 73. Matt Kuchar, who shared the 54-hole lead with Woodland, fell back with a triple bogey on No. 9. His only birdie was on the 18th hole, and it gave him a 78. “I found a way to hang in there and grind it out and gave myself a chance on the back nine on Sunday, which is everything you can ask for,” Woodland said. It was the second time Woods has missed a playoff by one shot at Liberty National. • LPGA EDMONTON, Alberta — Teen star Lydia Ko ran away with the Canadian Women’s Open — again.
The 16-year-old New Zealand amateur successfully defend her title Sunday, closing with a 6-under 64 on Sunday at Royal Mayfair for a five-stroke victory and her fourth win in professional events. “I’m pretty surprised, but I played some really good golf out there, so I was really happy about that,” Ko said. “My goal today was to shoot 5 under and just play my own game. If somebody else shot better, then I can’t do anything about it.” Last year at Vancouver Golf Club in British Columbia, the South Koreanborn Ko became the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history at 15 years, 4 months, 2 days. She also was the fifth amateur winner in tour history and the first since JoAnne Carner in the 1969 Burdine’s Invitational.
