WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government reported a rare surplus of $113 billion for April — the largest in five years and a sign of the nation’s improving finances. Steady economic growth and higher tax rates have boosted the tax revenue in recent months, keeping this year’s annual budget deficit on pace to be the smallest since 2008. A smaller deficit is also likely to give negotiators more time to work out a deal on raising the nation’s borrowing limit. Through the first seven months of the budget year, the deficit was $488 billion, according to the Treasury. That’s lower than last year’s deficit of $720 billion over the same period. Even with the improvement, the deficit for the full year will still be quite large: the Congressional Budget Office expects it will reach $845 billion when the budget year ends on Sept. 30. While that would be the first annual deficit below $1 trillion since 2008, it would still be the fifth-largest deficit in U.S. history. The federal deficit represents the annual difference between the government’s spending and the tax revenues it takes in. Each deficit contributes to the national debt, which recently topped $16 trillion. A smaller deficit is taking pressure off of negotiations to raise the federal borrowing limit. Lawmakers and the Obama administration agreed in January to suspend the borrowing limit until May 18. But higher revenues and less spending will likely extend the deadline until the fall.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Aviation Administration will keep open for now the 149 control towers at small airports that were slated to close as the result of governmentwide automatic spending cuts imposed by Congress, the Transportation Department said Friday. The towers, which are operated by contractors for the FAA at low-traffic airports, had been scheduled to close June 15. They will now remain open at least through Sept. 30, the end of the federal budget year, the department said in a statement. A bill hastily passed by Congress last month to end air traffic controller furloughs also makes enough money available to keep the towers open, the statement said. The bill gave the FAA authority to shift $253 million from accounts with unspent funds to keep controllers on the job. The furloughs at all FAA-operated airport towers and air traffic control facilities caused widespread flight delays across the country for nearly a week before Congress stepped in. FAA officials have previously said they needed at least $200 million to eliminate the need for furloughs. The bill didn’t require the FAA to spend the remaining funds on keeping towers at small airports open, but lawmakers said they anticipated the agency would use the money that way. The FAA also will put $10 million toward reducing cuts and delays in its program to move from a radar-based air traffic control system to one based on satellite navigation, the statement said. Another $11 million will go to “partially restore the support of infrastructure in the national airspace sys-

All of these murders happened in Troy, Piqua, Tipp City and Covington. Fulker, a practicing attorney for 60 years, tells these stories and their sometimes poignant endings, with flair and sharp dialogue.


tem,” the statement said. While the decision gives the small airports a temporary reprieve, FAA officials will still be under pressure to find ways to further cut spending. The FAA’s initial decision to close the airport towers set off an intense lobbying campaign to keep them open. Several lawmakers and the trade association that represents contractors who operate the towers claimed victory after Friday’s announcement. “The broad coalition of communities, airports, air traffic controllers, aviation system users and members of Congress that has emerged in recent months united in the fight to keep contract towers open is a testament to the important role these facilities play in enhancing the safety and efficiency of the nation’s aviation system,” J. Spencer Dickerson, executive director of the U.S. Contract Tower Association, said. “It’s been a long fight since our original amendment to prevent the towers from closing and preserve aviation safety was blocked from a vote, but in the end common sense prevailed over politics,” Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., said in a statement.


Owner Linda Poling and her granddaughter, Haleigh, stand outside Dave’s Place, their Fisk Street dining establishment, earlier this week.

Milestone ■ CONTINUED FROM 1 The Polings themselves are second-generation owners who purchased the business 31 years ago, one year after Dave’s parents, Pudge and Shirley Poling, started the restaurant. After 32 years in operation, Linda said she never thought she would still be working at the restaurant side by side with her husband.

“When I started working here I was 32 years old,” she said. “At the time I thought, ‘Oh man, I don’t want to cook all the time.’ I was very young then and I didn’t want to be in the kitchen for the rest of my life. So I thought then that I would just do it for a little bit. Here we are and now I have my great grandkids coming in here — all of my grandkids were raised in here.” The Polings’ extended

Students prepared handson learning experiences such as making soybeanbased lip balm and “Hamburger Treats” to explain what it takes to provide food that the students eat every day, and what everyday products they themselves might use that come from wheat, soybeans and corn.

NEW YORK (AP) — The World Trade Center’s rebirth has long revolved around creating a centerpiece of unsparing symbolism: a skyscraper 1,776 feet tall, its height an homage and a bold statement about looking forward. The new 1 World Trade Center reached that height with the lowering of a silvery spire from a crane on Friday, officially taking its place as a signature of the city’s skyline and, with some argument, the nation’s tallest tower. After years of waiting for and watching the building’s rise, the moment resonated for many, from workers who looked on from the building’s roof to visitors on the ground. “It’s a pretty awesome feeling,” Juan Estevez, a project manager for Tishman Construction, said from a temporary platform on the roof of the tower where workers watched with shouts of joy as the final two sections of the 408foot, 758-ton spire were installed. Carol Johnston gazed up at the structure later Friday from a nearby building. “It’s sort of a renewal … like ‘you can’t keep us down,’” said Johnston, a tourist from Fort Worth, Texas. Even or perhaps especially for New Yorkers who have followed the World Trade Center rebuilding after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks destroyed the twin towers, the spire’s completion was an impressive milestone. “I was giving them at least five more years to be done,” said Gil Areizaga, a Manhattan resident who took out-of-town cousins to see the building Friday. The skyscraper, expected to open next year, is the focal point among the buildings designed to replace the fallen twin towers. When master plans for the site were unveiled in December 2002, architect Daniel Libeskind envisioned the tower “restoring the spiritual peak of the city, creating an icon that speaks to our vitality in the face of danger and our optimism in the aftermath of tragedy.”

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” — First Amendment, U.S. Constitution

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Daily Reflector, Greenville, N.C., on rushing immigration bill: The 2012 U.S. Supreme Court ruling upholding the centerpiece provision of Arizona’s radical immigration law essentially gave a green light for other states to adopt similar hard-line measures. Given the N.C. General Assembly’s penchant for extremist legislation this session, it was only a matter of time before the Republican majority moved in that direction. While the legislation might curry favor with the conservative base and the nativist tea party contingent, Arizona lawmakers will attest to a far colder reception among business leaders, who correctly predicted that significant financial losses would follow passage. North Carolina’s economy hardly needs additional obstacles to success and, in addition to its moral flaws, this immigration bill would represent an insurmountable one. The House Judiciary Committee this month held its first hearing on the so-called “RECLAIM N.C.” act that would dramatically alter the state’s immigration policies. The financial effects are impossible to precisely calculate, but are enormous. A January story in the Arizona Republic reported booking down 30 percent for the Phoenix Convention Center, with the law often cited for groups heading elsewhere. Forbes magazine traced lower consumer spending and a decrease in business investment to the anti-immigrant legislation. And agriculture stands to lose billions if the measures proliferate. Federal lawmakers are now working on a reform package that U.S. Sen. John McCain, an Arizona Republican, believes could win 70 votes in the Senate. Such bipartisan agreement is nearly unbelievable in today’s Washington but would put pressure on the House to give the measure serious consideration as well. Instead of acting prematurely, North Carolina would be better served to allow that process to play out. There is no harm in seeing what Congress might deliver first. Not only would it save legal immigrant residents from enduring the treatment criticized in Arizona, it could spare businesses, farmers and the state from losing millions as a result of its recklessness. Chicago Tribune on getting rid of tariffs on trans-Atlantic trade: Within a few months, the U.S. and European Union will formally launch free-trade talks. Now is the time to think big. After years of neglect, this trade relationship is ripe for improvement. Europe is suffering through a prolonged economic downturn and America needs all the growth it can get. Liberalizing trade is a sure way to give business a boost. Both sides have strong incentives to make progress. It can’t happen soon enough. As a matter of principle, there should be no barriers to imports and exports between the U.S. and Europe. Europeans remain wary of America’s genetically modified food, for instance. Americans have different standards for approving prescription drugs. Rules for headlights, seat belts and other auto parts need to be harmonized. The negotiations are liable to get complicated. Not every trade issue is so terribly difficult, however. Here’s a simple idea that would make a big difference: Get rid of the system of tariffs and duties that needlessly obstruct trade across the Atlantic. There is no reason why the U.S. and Europe should impose these taxes on goods just because they happen to cross the ocean. What a coup it would be to jump-start trade talks by saying: No more! No more tariffs and duties on the vast majority of goods being traded. Zero ‘em out. America did just that with Canada and Mexico in the North American Free Trade Agreement. For industries such as chemicals, machinery and cars, which pay the most in tariffs and duties, a zero deal would make a big difference. It would encourage more economic activity and import competition. It also would introduce important efficiencies: About one-third of trans-Atlantic trade is between branches of the same firm — a company shipping stuff from one of its locations to another. A free-trade agreement between the U.S. and Europe should start with eliminating tariffs and duties, but it should not stop there. The tough work of tearing down regulatory barriers and harmonizing standards has the potential for an even greater payoff. For too long, and for no good reason, free trade has eluded the U.S. and Europe. Let’s make a deal.

The moment my life changed in the best possible way Three years ago yesterday, my life changed in a way I could have never, ever comprehended before then. At 5:25 p.m., May 10, 2010, I became a mother. I remember the last few weeks of my first pregnancy. I was aching to meet my daughter (partly to confirm that she was, in fact, a daughter) and thought for sure my tossing and turning and inability to find a comfortable sleeping position had prepared me for the allnighters I’d be pulling with my baby. Side note, I was wrong. Terribly wrong. Because the truth is, absolutely nothing in this entire world prepares you for becoming a mother. Sure, I read all the books. I went to the classes. I watched the scary birthing documentaries. From a knowledge standpoint, I had done my research — I knew it all. Except there’s this big, huge thing that no book, class or movie can prepare you for when you become a parent — the emotions. Never in my life have I felt so utterly helpless, terrified, ecstatic, nauseous, jittery, fine or anxious all at the same time. Being a

Amnanda Stewart Troy Daily News Columnist mother is a muddling of all those feelings at once; it leaves you exhausted but apprehensive. You’re tired, you’re worn out, you’ve completed what feels like a marathon, your body has literally been split in half and while you should sleep as much as you can when you can, you can’t help but stare at that little, perfect bundle of baby. You know that you have this amazing, strong, undying love for this little baby all of the sudden. You finally realize what that tired old phrase “love at first sight” means. But unfortunately, now, now you really, really know what heartache feels like too. The medical staff shuffles in and out, poking and prodding your

wounded body, all while shuttling the new love of your life from your breast to a bath to a scale. It’s such a blur of actions the only thing you walk away remembering is your perfect baby’s measurements (8.56 pounds, 21.25 inches long) and that heart-wrenching cry. Oh, that cry. It’s in that instant you’re offered a momentary glimpse into your future. This tiny little baby already has your heart wrapped around her little finger. You begin to wonder how on Earth you ever lived before this sweet little soul made her way into your life. And in the same hand, you begin to wonder how on Earth you could ever live without her. In a matter of 24 hours your life has been drastically altered in the best way possible. You experience the rawest emotions you’ll probably ever feel again. But with all those wonderful, fuzzy, warm emotions, come the scary, dark, bad ones. Throughout most of your pregnancy you count down to certain milestones. At 13 weeks your chances of miscarriage drastically

decrease. At 20 weeks you get to find out whether you’ll be team pink or blue. At around 24 weeks you know there’s a chance of survival, even if a relatively small one. And finally, you hit 29 weeks. Chances of survival skyrocket and you suddenly feel a sense of calmness. Sure, it’d be a bumpy road ahead, but at least the odds were in your favor. At least your baby would make it. And then, in those first 24 hours, from the flutter of nurses to the cluster of assessments, your all-time highs are threatened by the lowest of your lows. You realize how helpless you really are. You realize how much bad stuff could happen that you have virtually no control over. You’ve never loved anything so much in your life and you probably never will again. And so you cry and you laugh and you worry, because you don’t know what else to do. And despite all the big, bad, scary things the world has to offer, you smile. You smile because you know that this is by far the best and most amazing thing you’ll ever do. Amanda Stewart appears on Saturdays in the Troy Daily News.

Kidnapping suspect fathered girl CLEVELAND (AP) — A DNA test confirmed another dark twist in the story of three women imprisoned in a house for about a decade: Kidnapping and rape suspect Ariel Castro is the father of a 6-year-old girl who escaped from the house along with the women, a prosecutor said Friday. As the investigation into the women’s ordeal continued, the FBI also said no human remains were among more than 200 pieces of evidence collected from the house. Two of the women, including the one who gave birth to the girl, returned to relatives’ houses earlier this week. The third woman, Michelle Knight, was released from a hospital Friday with a request that her privacy be respected. “Michelle Knight is in good spirits and would like the community to know that she is extremely grateful for the outpouring of flowers and gifts,” the statement said. No information would be provided about Knight’s next steps, said MetroHealth Medical Center spokeswoman Phyllis Marino. Castro remained in jail under a suicide watch on $8 million bond while prosecutors weighed what charges they might bring against him, including the possibility of charges carrying a death penalty. He currently is charged with rape and kidnapping. Castro was represented at Thursday’s hearing by public defender Kathleen





Deborah Knight, center, grandmother of Michelle Knight, drives her wheelchair past the home of Gina DeJesus in Cleveland Friday. Michelle Knight was freed from the home of Ariel Castro along with DeJesus and Amanda Berry Monday where the 52year-old man had held them captive for a decade. Demetz, who said she is acting as Castro’s adviser if needed until he’s appointed a full-time attorney once he’s charged by a grand jury. She said Friday she can’t speak to his guilt or innocence and said only that she advised him not to give any media interviews that might jeopardize his case. Family members have portrayed Castro as a “monster” who terrorized the mother of his children, frequently beating her, playing twisted psychological games and locking her indoors. The stories, repeated in separate interviews by members of Castro’s extended family, have sur-

prised people who knew him as a musician who played bass in several bands around Cleveland the last two decades. Miguel Quinones, manager of a group Castro played with twice as a backup bass player about five years ago, said Thursday he had nothing bad to say about Castro based on his own experiences. A police report alleged that Castro impregnated one of his captives at least five times and made her miscarry by starving her and punching her in the stomach. The report also said another one of the women, Amanda Berry, was forced to give birth in a

plastic kiddie pool. Tests by the state attorney general’s office on a sample of Castro’s DNA confirmed that he is the father of Berry’s 6-year-old daughter, who was rescued from his house, the office said Friday. After her release, the girl returned home with Berry, 27. Officials also were entering the DNA profile into a national database to see if it links him to other crimes. The three women said Castro chained them up in the basement but eventually let them live on the home’s second floor. Each woman told a similar story about being abducted after accepting a ride from him.

“whole theme of cannibalism seems added for its symbolism, showing what humans would degenerate into in their more primitive, zombie state.” The point, he added, is that “we, humans, not just zombies, prey on each other, depend on each other for our pathetic and parasitic existence, and thrive on each (other’s) misery.” This is why, said Beard, far too many women and men seem to be staggering through life today like listless shoppers wandering in shopping malls, their eyes locked on their smartphones instead of the faces of loved ones. Far too often their lives are packed with stuff, but empty of meaning. Romero and his artistic disciples keep asking a brutal question: This is living? “One of the big questions in zombie stories is the whole ‘Do zombies have souls?’ thing,” said Beard. “If zombies no longer have souls, what does it mean for a human being to be soulless? If you have a soul, how do you hang onto it? Why does it seem that so many people today seem to have lost their souls?”

Here is a long overdue note to mom Dear Annie: I am writing a long overdue thank-you note to my parents. They are faithful readers of your column. Mom and Dad, I am thankful that: You stood your ground and did not give in to me, even when I threw fits and demanded my way. You supported me in school and gave me the tools to succeed, instead of letting me waste my potential. You made me honor the commitments I had made, instead of allowing me to quit when it became hard or boring. You took me to church on Sundays, rather than allowing me to sleep in. You insisted that I respect authority, not thinking it was cute when I defied adults. You made me speak using clean language, not tolerating profanity even though "everyone else talked that way." You checked my Facebook page and other social media, making me remove anything inappropriate or insulting to others. You explained the dark and dangerous path I was choosing when I was tempted to dabble in alcohol and drugs, instead of turning a blind eye. You encouraged and persuaded me to wait when I considered having sex as a teen, rather than buying me birth control. You showed me how to forgive others and overlook offenses, instead of letting me develop a bitter spirit. You taught me the value of teamwork, not a "Me First" attitude. You guided me to develop goals and not live for immediate self-gratification. You helped me choose friends carefully and wisely, instead of welcoming everyone into my life under the guise of being nonjudgmental. You insisted that I apologize when I was wrong and make efforts at reconciliation, rather than create unnecessary enemies. You lectured me often, instead of biting your tongue. You were the authority figures in the home, and I knew it. Even though I yelled that you hated me, I didn't really believe that. I knew that every word and action from you came from a giant heart of love. Here's to you, Mom and Dad. Thank you for your courageous parenting. — Young Adult Who Is Better for It Dear Young Adult: We can only imagine how proud your parents will be to see this. We hope every parent who reads your letter will make a copy to keep by their bedside and believe that their own child wrote it. Thank you. Dear Annie: "California" asked about the gifts for a young man entering boot camp. Unless they do it differently now, you can't just change your mind. You sign a contract. Leaving would be "going AWOL," and they will come looking for you. — Been There Dear Been: Actually, this is not so. You can change your mind about enlisting, as long as you go through the proper procedures to do so. Dear Annie: Your response to "Iowa" was a little short of information. She questioned why toilet paper dispensers were so low. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, they are required to be at that height. Requirements also include heights for side and rear grab bars, as well as minimum stall sizes and clearances. Did you know that a 5-foot circle is required as a clear dim within a handicapped stall? There is more, but you get the point. — Christian in Aptos Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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


Painting party was a neat way to celebrate a birthday Dear Heloise: I wanted to share this really cute idea that my daughter did when she was planning my granddaughter’s birthday party. She decided to have a painting party for several little girls she had invited. She went to a crafts store and bought small, individual canvases for each child. Then she covered the outside patio table with some newspaper and set up each little girl at the table with a canvas in front of her. When the little girls were done, my daughter had them sign the back of the canvas. Then my daughter kept all the canvases. When they were dry, she framed them, and on the

Hints from Heloise Columnist back of each masterpiece she wrote when it was painted and that it was for my granddaughter’s party. — Judy Malik, Seguin, Texas Darling! This is a fun idea for folks of any age. — Heloise STRAWBERRY HINT Dear Heloise: I received this hint from a friend of mine several years ago, and it really

works well. To keep strawberries fresh for a few days longer, place in an airtight container with pieces of paper towel between each layer, being sure not to squeeze them close together. Place in the refrigerator. It does give them extra life. — E.G. in Connecticut Strawberries are a favorite of mine, especially when in season. I have a delicious recipe for strawberry gelatin cake, with fresh strawberries as an ingredient. To try this yummy recipe, as well as Heloise’s Red Velvet Cake and War Cake, just send $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (66 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Cake, P.O. Box 795001,

San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. To easily hull strawberries, use a straw. Just poke it all the way through the strawberry, from the bottom up. — Heloise LID REMOVAL Dear Heloise: To make lid removal easier, I use a leather glove on my hand so the lid can’t slip. — James in Oregon Sometimes the lids on jars or other containers can be a pain to remove, especially when they’re opened for the first time. Don’t forget the old hint of tapping the side of the lid with a wooden spoon to help to break the air seal. When in desperation, my favorite thing to do is to let someone else open it. — Heloise












HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, May 12, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a creative day for writers and artists. (Remember: Aries is the sign that is the artisan of the zodiac.) Explore ideas, but don’t agree to anything important. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Although this is a pleasant day, it’s a poor day for important financial decisions. It’s also a poor day to shop for anything other than food or gas. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is a fun-loving, lighthearted day; however, you feel a bit like a helium balloon adrift in the sky. Enjoy chatting to others. Keep things light. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Quiet moments of meditation or thoughtful contemplation will please you today. This is a good day for yoga and mind-centering activities. Cocoon at home. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a wonderful day to schmooze with friends and groups. However, don’t volunteer for anything or agree to anything important. Wait until tomorrow to know what you’re doing. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Private details about your personal life might be made public today. Just be aware of this in case you need to do some damage control. (Oops.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a great day to study and explore new ideas; however, if traveling, you can expect delays and detours. Enjoy meeting people from other cultures. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Others feel generous to you today. In turn, you might feel generous to others. However, avoid important decisions about finances and shared property — just for today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good day for candid conversations with partners and close friends, because people are open and willing to share their feelings. Just kick some ideas around; postpone big decisions until tomorrow. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Expect shortages and delays at work today. Fortunately, co-workers are in a good mood. Go with the flow and take care of business as usual. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is a highly creative day! Tap into your natural talents or just be a kid again — drawing, dancing, singing, whatever. It’s a good time for parties, vacations and entertaining. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You feel generous to family members today, and they probably feel generous to you. Nevertheless, this is a poor day to make big decisions or impulsively give something away. Wait until tomorrow. YOU BORN TODAY You’re direct and honest, and you never hesitate to speak your mind. Others like to be with you because they know they can trust you. (Plus, you have a wonderful, dry sense of humor.) You’re a takecharge straight-shooter who exudes confidence. In the year ahead, a major change might take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2004. Stay flexible.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Worldwide levels of the chief greenhouse gas that causes global warming have hit a milestone, reaching an amount never before encountered by humans, federal scientists said Friday. Carbon dioxide was measured at 400 parts per million at the oldest monitoring station in Hawaii which sets the global benchmark. The last time the worldwide carbon level was probably that high was about 2 million years ago, said Pieter Tans of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That was during the Pleistocene Era. “It was much warmer than it is today,” Tans said. “There were forests in Greenland. Sea level was higher, between 10 and 20 meters (33 to 66 feet).” Other scientists say it may have been 10 million years ago that Earth last encountered this level of carbon dioxide. The measurement was recorded Thursday. The number 400 has been anticipated by climate scientists and environmental activists for years as a notable indicator, in part because it’s a round number not because any changes in man-made global warming happen by reaching it.

Landing a Job in a Digital Era W

ith people updating their social networking pages from their PDAs and downloading favorite tunes from their mobile phones, it should come as no surprise society has grown increasingly reliant on technology. Individuals about to dive into the job-seeking market may have to rethink their search skills to maximize the potential of reaching employers and companies that likely embrace a digital mind set. As of June 2009, the U.S. unemployment rate reached 9.7 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.This means there are a great deal of people — from the recently laid off to the newly graduated — who are all vying for the same jobs. Thinking creatively and exploring numerous ways of advertising oneself can help land a job in today’s market. Newspaper: The newspaper has long been a respected and effective means to find work. It is still a viable way to find jobs that are local without having to search through hundreds and hundreds of positions, which is common with online job posting sites. However, why not turn the tables and use the newspaper — and its respective online site — to advertise yourself? For a relatively low investment of time and money, you can place a classified ad that you are seeking work and briefly explain your credentials. Create a separate, free e-mail address with your favorite mail provider specifically for receiving inquiries to this advertisement. Personal Web site: Employers are short on time and many want to exert the least amount of energy possible when seeking job candidates. A personal Web page can put your information in the hands of employers in a concise and eye-catching way.The Web page can feature a brief description of yourself and also include a digital resume. Simply provide a link to your site when applying for a job. Remember, a personal Web site should be all business. Now is not the time for a pretty picture or stories about your pets. Employers are looking for skills. Be bold with buzzwords: Turn your experience into a list of buzzwords, keywords and important phrases when writing a resume. It used to be that verbs were the key to landing a job. Using strong action words should relay your experience. However, today resumes are frequently reviewed by a digital eye, rather than a human eye. This digital eye is programmed to recognize certain words and phrases that will sort your resume out from the others. Including the right keywords ensures your resume has a better chance of being picked. Use as many words as you can that were included in the original job posting — they’re likely to be programmed keywords. Most of these words are nouns that signal job titles, technical skills and levels of education or experience. Use social networking sites to your advantage: Employers and recruiters have admitted they frequently go to social networking sites, such as MySpace, Facebook and LinkedIn to “check up” on potential hires — or even employees they already have on staff. Many a person has compromised his or her chances for hire by questionable material posted on their pages. Instead of being a victim of the pitfalls of social networking, use it to your advantage. Seed your pages with information that may be interesting to a potential employer by doing a little research. For example, if you know a certain company to which you’d like to apply places significant emphasis on the environment, list the “green” functions you’ve attended and the groups to which you

Keeping up with the digital world could be the key to landing your next job. belong on your page. Know a hiring manager is an avid golfer? Talk about your passion for the game. It’s these little things that may get you in the door to an interview. Think differently: There are some people who want to take their job search to another level.With the market saturated by job seekers, sometimes it’s the person who has the nerve to stand out from the crowd that will land the job. Today it’s not uncommon to find door-todoor solicitation of jobs, people posting job requests on YouTube or similar sites, or even standing in a busy downtown area with a sign that says, “Looking for Work.” Others turn to popular blogs to get the word out. The more people who know you’re looking for work, the better chance you will find a position. Technology is technology: There are certain tips you should keep in mind when applying for jobs: - Scanners that look at resumes work well with these typefaces: Helvetica, Courier, Futura, Optima, Palatino, New Century Schoolbook, and Times. And they work best with type sizes in the 10to 14-point range. - Don’t send your resume as an attachment, or include any attachments, unless specified. There are always concerns about computer viruses and attachments can even get lost. Paste everything into the body of your e-mail. - Use the subject line of an e-mail as a theater marquee and sell yourself. - Use the proofreading/spell-check functions of your word processing software, but also print out your materials and read them over. There’s no excuse to be excluded from a job because of a silly typo. - Follow-up with all job applications. It could move your resume to the top of the pile.

Funding Fun Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has signed a bill that will provide a $100 million state loan to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for planned improvements. Pence had earlier expressed concerns about the funding plan for the home of IndyCar’s Indianapolis 500 and NASCAR's Brickyard 400. But after signing the measure Friday he said in a statement that the Speedway loan is a state investment that “will further economic development in the motorsports industry while also protecting the interests of Hoosier taxpayers.”

Spanish Grand Prix Site: Barcelona, Spain. Schedule: Saturday, practice, qualifying (NBC Sports Network, 8-9:30 a.m.); Sunday, race, 8 a.m. (NBC Sports Network, 7:30-10:30 a.m., 2-5 p.m.).

Second Chance AJ Allmendinger will drive in IndyCar’s Belle Isle Grand Prix Dual in Detroit. Team Penske confirmed the move Friday. He will drive the No. 2 Quicken Loans Dallara/Chevrolet on the 2.3-mile street circuit. It is IndyCar’s first doubleheader weekend, with races on both June 1 and June 2. Allmendinger has spent the past six seasons in NASCAR after spending his early career in Champ Car. Team owner Roger Penske has given the driver a second chance after firing him last summer for failing a NASCAR drug test. Allmendinger has raced in four Cup Series events for Phoenix Racing in addition to two IndyCar Series starts. He will race in the Indianapolis 500 later this month.

He Said, She Said


NASCAR chief executive Brian France said in court documents that his former wife spent a “staggering” amount of his fortune on her family and friends. Megan France said her former husband spent little time with their two children and became verbally abusive when he didn’t get his way. Voluminous court documents unsealed Wednesday revealed new details about the couple’s bitter second divorce, years after the contentious 2008 breakup. France’s lawyers had fought for years to keep the records confidential. France married the Charlotte woman twice and they divorced twice. Their first marriage lasted from 2001 to 2004. They married again in 2005 and the second divorce was finalized in 2008.

Kurt Busch celebrates after learning he won the pole and broke the track record with a speed of 181.918 mph during qualifying for Saturday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup series race at Darlington Raceway Friday in Darlington, S.C.

Double dipping? Kurt Busch wants to run two races on same day By The Associated Press Kurt Busch would like to try racing 1,100 miles some Memorial Day weekend. He’s even asking for help. Ten minutes after arriving in Indianapolis, the 2004 Cup champion wasted no time in speaking his mind Wednesday. He told reporters during a seat-fitting that he would be interested in competing in the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600 on the same day — if race organizers can work out the logistics. “It’s unique and I know he (Tony Stewart) wants to get back in the 500,” Busch said. “I know there’s a business side to it and if we could get the (start) times sorted out, I think you’d get more interest from drivers, teams and sponsors because that’s what the fans want to see.” Stewart, Robby Gordon and John Andretti are the only drivers who have ever made the attempt. None of the three wound up winning either race. Busch could be the next one to try, and he’s scheduled to test Ryan Hunter-Reay’s car Thursday on Indy’s 2.5-mile oval even though he’s not scheduled to drive in this year’s race. The track opens Saturday, qual-

ifying is scheduled for May 18-19 and the race is scheduled for May 26. As 500 organizers confirmed their 33rd driver-car combination, with the addition of 1996 race winner Buddy Lazier to the entry list, Busch wasn’t ruling out the possibility that he could be back on the track come race day. “I don’t even know how it (the schedules) lay out this year,” Busch said. “But they have faster planes and faster helicopters now.” And faster cars, presuming the weather cooperates and there are a minimal number of cautions on race day. Just showing up in Andretti’s shop got Busch’s juices flowing. He acknowledged calling an old friend and a former Penske Racing teammate, 2006 Indy winner Sam Hornish Jr., for advice on what is scheduled to be a 3 -hour test run. Busch brought his father along for the ride and the 34-year-old even referred to himself as a kid in a candy store. Last weekend, Busch was caught in a late wreck at Talladega, his Cup car going airborne before landing on Ryan Newman’s car. Afterward, Newman criticized NASCAR for failing to find a way to keep cars grounded.

The wreck was a hot topic on Tuesday’s NASCAR conference call and, of course, at Andretti Autosport headquarters. “I’ve been on fire, I’ve been rolling over, I’ve got all the bad stuff out of the way,” Busch joked. Andretti quickly responded: “Good, I’m glad to hear that, and I’m sure Ryan is glad to hear it, too.” So what about the opportunity to race at Indy? Andretti was noncommittal, though he and Busch both acknowledged it’s possible. “We’re going to sit down and go through the whole show and see what happens,” Andretti said. • Track Record Kurt Busch ended up on top at Darlington Raceway a week after finishing upside-down at Talladega. Five days ago, Busch went airborne near the end of the Aaron’s 499 and crash landed on Ryan Newman. On Friday, Busch sped around Darlington with a fast lap of 181.918 mph for his third career pole here. It surpassed the twoyear-old mark of 181.254 mph held by Kasey Kahne. “Last week, we ended on our lid and this week, we’re here with a track record,” Busch said.

No word yet for Newman DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Here’s a twist: Ryan Newman is eager to speak with NASCAR officials, but so far has not heard back from them. Newman’s spent plenty of time in NASCAR’s trailer during his career for critical words or on-track clashes with competitors. This time, Newman says he can’t get a callback to discuss his worries following a late-race accident at Talladega Superspeedway. Kurt Busch’s car went airborne during a wreck last Sunday and landed smack on top of Newman’s machine. Both drivers walked away unhurt. Still, Newman was frustrated about the accident and expressed his displeasure on TV. “They can build safer race cars, they can build safer walls. But they can’t get their heads out of their (expletive) far enough to keep them on the race track, and that’s pretty disappointing,” Newman said at Talladega last Sunday. He said Friday after qualifying for the Southern 500 that he tried to contact someone at NASCAR who could “make a difference,” but has yet to receive a response. NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp said the organization had no comment about not getting back to Newman and added that NASCAR routinely communicates with its drivers. “No matter what the issue was, I voiced displeasure,” Newman said at Darlington. “From a communication standpoint as they’ve tried to do with us and I’ve tried to do with them, there’s needs to be a happy medium of taking on each other’s sides.” Newman was not fined by NASCAR for his Talladega comments, a departure from earlier in the year when Denny Hamlin was fined $25,000 for complaining that the new Gen-6 car did not race as well as its previous car. NASCAR chairman Brian France has given drivers permission to criticize anything but the cars and the on-track product. Newman thought he voiced his opinion fairly and did not cross that line that would’ve gotten him a fine. “I could’ve said a lot more and paid a penalty, but I chose not to,” Newman said. Hamlin was not surprised Newman wasn’t fined by NASCAR. Hamlin met with France in Las Vegas after his critical remarks and Hamlin remembers the chairman saying, “criticize the officiating all you want,’” but don’t make harsh comments about the racing or the car. Hamlin said he thought NASCAR realized they may have gone too far with the earlier penalty and gave Newman some latitude. “I think that they’ve loosed up the reigns and realized that drivers are in the heat of the moment and Ryan just had a car flip right on top him, so he’s made for a lot of reasons,” Hamlin said. “So I don’t think a penalty was warranted for Ryan.”

Kenseth pleased with appeal, reduced penalties DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Matt Kenseth was in Canada when J.D. Gibbs sent him the results of their appeal to NASCAR to reduce sweeping penalties against Joe Gibbs Racing. “J.D. kept texting me and the texts just kept getting longer and longer,” Kenseth said Friday. “I’m like, ‘Wait a minute. They did what? They gave us that back?’” They sure did. Aside from crew chief Jason Ratcliff’s absence Friday at Darlington

Raceway, it was almost like nothing ever happened after a three-member appeal panel dramatically reduced the penalties for having an illegal part in Kenseth’s race-winning engine at Kansas. Among the key changes: Ratcliff’s suspension was reduced from six races to one, Kenseth lost only 12 points instead of 50, a sixrace suspension against team owner Joe Gibbs was wiped out and Kenseth had his three bonus points from

the Kansas victory restored. The decision came a day after NASCAR chief appellate officer John Middlebrook reduced the suspensions of seven key Penske Racing employees from six points races to two, plus next week’s All-Star race. Middlebrook upheld the rest of the sanctions against Penske, but the team initally still viewed his decision as a victory. Defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski was more subdued Friday.

“I guess at this point I’ve kind of become devoid of any emotions about it,” Keselowski said. “I was pretty emotional when it all started, but not anymore. I’m more focused on the task at hand and motivated to do the best we can with the situation we have. I think adversity is an opportunity and this is an opportunity to showcase how strong we can be as a team and that’s how I’m looking at it.” The suspensions ran

deep into the Penske organization, and Keselowski said it was his understanding crew chief Paul Wolfe could communicate with the team in real-time so long as he wasn’t on track property. That’s been a help. “It’s not like Paul is shot and dead,” Keselowski said. “There’s all kinds of technology in this garage, maybe not always on the race cars, but there’s no shortage of that. Still, there’s nothing quite like having somebody at the track.”

Cancellations all over Miami County Baseball, softball and Covington Invitational all affected by weather Staff Reports The Troy Trojans softball team won’t be getting a preview of its first tournament opponent after all. The Trojans and Fairborn Skyhawks were rained out Friday, one of many such postponements and cancellations that marred the next-to-last day of spring’s regular season. Troy (11-14) will play at Fairborn (9-17) Monday in the first round of the Division I sectional tournament, but the

Trojans were hoping for an early look beforehand. With only one day left before the postseason begins, though, the game will not be made up. Also rained out was Troy baseball’s game at Fairborn. The Trojans, who play at Northmont today on the season’s final day, will also likely not make up the game. Another major postponement came from the Covington Invitational track meet, which was moved to today. MiltonUnion, Miami East, Newton

MIAMI COUNTY and Bradford, along with the host Buccaneers, were all set to run at the meet, which is somewhat of a preview for next week’s Cross County Conference meet. The field events kick off at 9:30 a.m. and the running events are slated to start at 10:15 a.m. Also rained out was Troy Christian’s baseball and softball games at Ansonia. The games will not be made up, but the Eagles face Middletown Christian today at 4 p.m. in a makeup game in Metro Buckeye Conference play. The Troy Christian baseball

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani throws against the Milwaukee Brewers in the first inning of their baseball game Friday in Cincinnati.

BP fuels Reds Phillips leads Reds past Brewers, 4-3 CINCINNATI (AP) — Brandon Phillips homered and made a spectacular rally-busting play — using his left knee to get a forceout and start a double play — as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 on Friday night. Phillips had an RBI single off Yovani Gallardo (3-2) and added a solo homer in the seventh after making a saving play in the top of the inning. With two Brewers aboard, he got to Ryan Braun’s grounder up the middle, tagged second base with his left knee while falling down and threw to first for a double play. The Reds won for the fifth time in seven games. Cincinnati

is 14-6 at Great American Ball Park, the most home wins in the majors. Milwaukee got solo homers from Jean Segura and Braun, but lost for the seventh time in eight games. Alfredo Simon (3-1) threw two innings in relief of rookie left-hander Tony Cingrani. Aroldis Chapman gave up a run on a wild pitch in the ninth while getting his eighth save in as many chances. Carlos Gomez went 0 for 4 and grounded into a double play, ending his hitting streak at a career-best 14 games. Neither Gallardo nor Cingrani lasted more than four

innings on a wet night, testing both bullpens’ depth. Both were stingy, but Cincinnati’s had a one-run lead to hold. Reds relievers allowed three hits and four walks in five innings. The Brewers gave up eight hits and nine walks. The Reds pulled ahead 2-0 in the third on Phillips’ two-out RBI single and Jay Bruce’s double off the glove of Norichika Aoki in right field. Bruce improved to .419 against Gallardo. Zack Cozart’s RBI single in the fourth put the Reds up 3-2. Gallardo gave up five hits and five walks in his four innings, throwing 100 pitches.

Tippecanoe senior goalie Ryan Pignatiello wasn’t sure where soccer would take him entering his freshman year. That journey through high school soccer landed him a spot on the Wright State University soccer team. “I am excited,” Pignatiello said. “Looking back to my freshman year of high school, I didn’t think I would have a chance to play in college. This is a fantastic feeling.” Pignatiello owns four Tippecanoe High School records. He holds the mark for shutouts in a season (14.5), shutouts for a career (32), goals against average (.28) and goals against average for career (.37).

TIPP CITY Wright State sparked an interest in him after watching him play in a couple games. Prior to that, however, Pignatiello had his school list narrowed down to Louisville and Ohio Northern. “When I first put my name out to try to get recruited, Wright State was not even a question, I didn’t even consider them at the time,” Pignatiello said. “I was looking Louisville University and Ohio Northern. Wright State saw me play a couple games, they said they were going to add me to their recruit list. Lousiville had a couple guys coming in at my position, and decided they may not sign me. Wright State said they had a spot for me.”

It may have been an emotional day for Tippecanoe — and its coach — as it bid farewell to four talented seniors. But coach Von Clendenen hung onto one fact. “Their careers are not over quite yet,” he said.

Sam Bollinger, Adam Southers, Jon Lin and Doug Lehmkuhl played their final regular season matches as Red Devils on Friday as Tippecanoe moved its Senior Day celebration indoors, with the Devils routing Springfield Shawnee 5-0 at Schroeder Tennis Center. The match completes yet

TIPP CITY another undefeated Central Buckeye Conference championship for Tippecanoe (18-1, 160). The Devils haven’t lost a CBC match since 2011 — and have only lost a total of two since 2008. At first singles, Bollinger won 6-0, 6-0. At first doubles, Southers and teammate Michael Keller won 6-0, 6-0. And at sec-

ond doubles, the all-senior team of Lin and Lehmkuhl won 6-0, 61. At second singles, Jacob Belcher won 6-0, 6-0. At third singles, freshman Phillip Bullard won 6-0, 6-0. The match was Tippecanoe’s final tuneup for next week’s Division I sectional tournament, which kicks off Wednesday in Troy.

Troubled Bryant getting 2nd chance with Browns BEREA (AP) – Armonty Bryant was afraid his NFL career had ended before it even started. The Browns, though, are giving the troubled seventh-round draft pick one more chance his last chance. Arrested last week for driving under the influence in Oklahoma, Bryant, who also had a felony drug charge last October while in college, participated Friday with Cleveland’s other new players and undrafted free agents on the first day of Cleveland’s rookie mini-camp. But before taking the field, Bryant met with

Browns coach Rob Chudzinski and apologized. “He’s very remorseful for the things that have happened,” Chudzinski said following practice. “He understands me and what I expect from him and is ready to make amends.” Bryant, who was given a deferred one-year jail sentence after pleading no contest to the DUI charge, said he feared the Browns might cut ties with him following his latest arrest. Meeting with reporters after the workout was moved indoors by thunderstorms, he vowed to make it up to the Browns and not disappoint them again.

“I’m just fortunate the Browns still have faith in me,” the soft-spoken Bryant said. “Hopefully I can win a spot on this 53-man roster. I just made a stupid mistake at the time. But now I’m just going to let my actions speak for me.” Bryant was arrested last Friday near the football stadium at East Central University, where he starred for the Division II program. His blood-alcohol level was 0.098 percent over the state legal limit of 0.08. As part of his sentence, Bryant is required to attend a victim impact panel, obtain a substance abuse assessment and pay

$1,136 in court costs. The Browns knew they were taking a risk when they drafted the 6-foot-4, 263-pound Bryant, who was arrested last year for twice selling marijuana to an undercover police officer on campus. Chudzinski said the Browns discussed all of their options including releasing Bryant before deciding to have him report to camp. “It’s a serious matter,” the Browns’ first-year coach said. “Now that Armonty’s gotten here I had a chance to sit down with him and talk about my expectations and make

those expectations clear with him. I feel like we have a good support structure here and I feel like we have good guys in the locker room, some guys that were excellent mentors that any player that follows their example if you look at D’Qwell Jackson, if you look at Davone Bess and those guys will learn how to be a professional. “Ultimately, Armonty needs to show that he’s going to be accountable and I expect that out of him.” Bryant said he has made lifestyle changes in the wake of his latest criminal charges. He understands that he

can’t make another mistake. His recent, self-inflicted difficulties have put an uncomfortable spotlight on him and he knows there can be no more missteps or his dream of playing pro football will be over. “It’s been tough lately,” said Bryant, who added he apologized to Chudzinski “multiple” times. “I’ve just been able to move forward with it, the whole situation and thankfully the Browns still have faith in me and they just let me come out here and have a second chance. … I’m a football player and I came here to play football, so that’s what I’m going to do.”

Double trouble Bengals get started on 2-tight end offense


Sergio Garcia reacts after making birdie on the eighth hole during the second round of The Players championship golf tournament at TPC Sawgrass, Friday in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

Garcia leads Woods by 1 at Players PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The Players Championship already provides plenty of theater because of its thrill-a-minute golf course. Making it even more compelling is the star attraction of Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods, playing in the final group on the weekend for the first time in nearly seven years. Garcia made seven straight putts six of them for birdie on his way to a 7under 65 to match his best score on the TPC Sawgrass. That gave him a oneshot lead over Woods, who again made short work of the par 5s and posted his second straight 67. Woods broke his own 36-hole record at Sawgrass by six shots and can’t find much wrong with his game at the moment. It’s hard to call it a rivalry because it’s so onesided. Not only does Woods have a 77-8 margin in PGA Tour victories (and 14-0 in the majors), in the previous five times they were in the final group on the weekend on the PGA Tour, Woods has gone on to win all five times. Asked about the possibility of playing with Woods on Saturday, Garcia

said he wouldn’t see it as anything but another round of golf. “I don’t have to measure myself against anybody,” Garcia said. “I know what I want to try to do, and any given day I can shoot a round like this and any other day he can shoot a good round and beat me. Like we always say, it’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon. So there are going to be good days and not so good days, so just got to enjoy the good ones as much as possible.” This was a good day. Garcia ran off five straight birdies, ending the streak with putts from 20 feet and 25 feet, and then he added a 40-foot birdie putt on the par-3 eighth. Garcia, who won The Players in 2008, was at 11under 133. Woods looks like he’s having a good time on the course that has vexed him more than any other on the PGA Tour, and he could be the greater threat on the weekend. He now is 8under on the par 5s this week, including a 20-foot eagle putt on No. 2 that gave him a share of lead. Woods took the outright lead with a short birdie putt on No. 4 until Garcia blazed by him with his string of birdies.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Tyler Eifert lined up here, there and just about everywhere during his first practice with the Cincinnati Bengals. Felt like old times. The Bengals got started on their new tight endheavy passing game Friday at the start of a weekend rookie minicamp. A lot of the focus was on Eifert, chosen in the first round to give quarterback Andy Dalton another target. Eifert lined up in a lot of different spots at Notre Dame. Judging by the first day of practice in Cincinnati, he’s going to be doing the same thing in the NFL. “A lot of the things I’m learning are a lot of the same plays we had in with two tight ends move me around in different positions,” Eifert said. “Today I was out in the slot quite a bit. I think I’m picking it up pretty fast.” With Dalton watching from the sideline, Eifert made a nice one-hand catch during the morning workout, a preview of what he can bring to an offense that’s been overly dependent upon receiver A.J. Green. The Bengals haven’t added another proven receiver in the offseason. Rather, they took Eifert with the 21st overall pick, figuring his ability to catch the ball in a crowd he set a Notre Dame recover for catches by a tight end will give them some versatility and force defenses to worry about someone other than Green. Eifert lined up as a tight end on either side and also as a slot receiver during practice. The biggest challenge was learning the Bengals’ language for each play and


Cincinnati Bengals first-round draft pick Tyler Eifert (85), a tight end from Notre Dame, catches a pass during NFL football rookie minicamp Friday in Cincinnati. the pass protections. “I think I picked it up better than I thought I would at first,” Eifert said. “It’s not a whole lot, but it’s definitely something new for me. I’m catching on pretty quickly and moving around quite a bit.” The Bengals would like to use him along with tight end Jermaine Gresham, their first overall pick in 2010. The New England Patriots have shown that a two-tight end approach can keep defenses off balance, provided that both can catch the ball. New England’s Tom Brady set career highs in yards passing and touchdowns in 2011, using his tight ends generously. Defenses had trouble handling both Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez in the twotight end approach. Gronkowski had 90 catches for 1,327 yards that season. Hernandez

had 79 for 910. “You look at that year, and a lot of people don’t realize that Tom had his best statistical season ever in history,” said running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who was with New England then. “We threw the ball numerous times. We ran the ball three to five times a game. “Of course, that’s not what you want to do when you’re a running back. But we were winning games. It was a shock to the league that year. It can actually be a great thing when you have two guys who can catch the ball. It takes a lot of pressure off what you can do because you had to prepare for all those guys.” Dalton thinks that having two tight ends who can catch the ball will make defenses vulnerable somewhere. Dalton wasn’t allowed to work out with the rookies during minicamp. He left the field as

the morning workout was wrapping up. “You get the matchup of the tight ends on the linebackers and safeties,” Dalton said recently. “So I think he’s going to be a great addition. He’s going to make Jermaine a better player. I’m excited to get him in here and get working with him.” NOTES: The Bengals signed seventh-round picks OT Reid Fragel from Ohio State and center T.J. Johnson from South Carolina, the first of their draft picks to agree to contracts. … LB J.K. Schaffer, who was signed to the practice squad last season, participated in the workouts. “I was on the practice squad last year and I just never got that many quality reps with the actual calls and making adjustments,” Schaffer said. “I think it’s a real good opportunity for me to get back myself rolling and get back into some football.”

Fielder, Cabrera lead Tigers past Tribe DETROIT (AP) — Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera each hit a long home run, and the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 10-4 on Friday night. The Tigers scored three runs in the second and three more in the fourth. Fielder’s third-inning solo shot landed just below the No. 42 honoring Jackie Robinson on the brick facade beyond the wall in right-center

field, giving Detroit a 4-1 lead. Cabrera’s three-run homer the following inning landed below Hank Greenberg’s retired No. 5 in left-center at Comerica Park. Detroit’s Max Scherzer (5-0) allowed four runs and five hits in eight innings. He struck out seven without a walk. Corey Kluber (2-2)

allowed eight runs and 11 hits in 4 2-3 innings. Andy Dirks also homered for the Tigers, and Omar Infante had three hits, including two doubles. Jhonny Peralta doubled twice as well. The Tigers trailed 1-0 before Alex Avila’s two-run double in the second. Torii Hunter drove home Avila with a single to right, although he was tagged out

near first base on the throw back to the infield for the last out of the inning preventing another run from scoring on the play. Fielder’s homer went an estimated 460 feet according to a Tigers’ spokesman, who cited ESPN Stats and Info. The Indians answered with a run in the fourth when Nick Swisher tripled and scored on Carlos Santana’s groundout.

MLB suspends, fines umps after 2nd mistake NEW YORK (AP) Major League Baseball suspended umpire Fieldin Culbreth for two games on Friday because he was in charge of the crew that allowed Astros manager Bo Porter to improperly switch relievers in the middle of an inning. Culbreth and the rest of his crew Brian O’Nora, Bill Welke and Adrian Johnson were also fined an undis-

closed amount, after MLB admitted its umps goofed for the second straight day. “The rule covering pitching changes was not applied correctly by the umpiring crew,” MLB said in a statement. The problem in Houston came a day after Angel Hernandez and his crew in Cleveland failed to reverse a clear-cut home run after looking at a video review.

MLB vice president Joe Torre said the umpires made an “improper call.” It’s recently been a rough run for umps. Crew chief Tom Hallion was fined earlier this month after getting into a verbal spat with Tampa Bay pitcher David Price. The latest trouble occurred in the seventh inning at Minute Maid Park. And while baseball

does have video replay for some hard-to-tell calls and has talked for a couple of years about expanding its scope there was no mistaking what umpires saw. With two outs and the Astros ahead 5-3, Houston reliever Wesley Wright came in from the bullpen and threw several warmup pitches from the mound. Porter, a first-year manager, then ran onto the field to

stop him and brought in another reliever, Hector Ambriz. Angels manager Mike Scioscia argued, correctly contending Wright was required to pitch to at least one batter. But the umpires permitted Ambriz to stay in and Scioscia put the game under protest it became moot when the Angels rallied to win 6-5. Scioscia wasn’t sur-

prised by MLB’s stern ruling. “One thing I have found is that in the course of, especially with Joe Torre and Major League Baseball, that I think there is accountability that is there,” he said Friday in Chicago, “that might not always show it’s face but I know behind the scenes is there and this is one example.”

Kyle Busch wins 5th Nationwide race of season

Heat edges Bulls

DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Kyle Busch took the lead from Joey Logano 18 laps from the end to win his fifth Nationwide race this season and second in three years at Darlington Raceway on Friday night. The victory also capped a dominant showing by the Busch boys at the track “Too Tough To Tame.” Older brother Kurt set a qualifying record to win the pole for the Southern 500 on Saturday night. Kyle was third in Sprint Cup qualifying before dominating the Nationwide race. The younger Busch started from the pole and was the strongest car throughout. He led for 107 of the 147 laps and finished a second in front of Elliott Sadler. Joe Gibbs Racing placed four in the top five, Busch and Elliott’s teammates Brian Vickers third and Matt Kenseth fifth. Kyle Busch started from the pole the four JGR racers qualified 1-23-4 and was rarely challenged. Kenseth, a past Nationwide winner here, was the only other driver

to lead more than a lap with 27. Logano was in front when the field restarted following the last of four caution periods while Busch was in third. Busch quickly got past second-place Austin Dillon and began reeling in his former JGR teammate in Logano. Busch swept past Logano on lap 129 and found mostly clear sailing the rest of the way. Busch is the Nationwide leader with 56 career wins. He did not win in the series while operating a car he owned. Since rejoining JGR, Busch has regained his dominance. Now, he tries for his third doubledouble this season at the Southern 500 after sweeping both the Nationwide and Sprint Cup races earlier this season at Fontana and Texas. Busch won the 2008 Southern 500 at Darlington. The leading rookie on the Nationwide series, Kyle Larson, finished sixth while series points leader Regan Smith was seventh. Sprint Cup regular Kasey Kahne was ninth.

CHICAGO (AP) — LeBron James came on strong down the stretch to finish with 25 points, Chris Bosh added 20 points and 19 rebounds, and the Miami Heat followed up the most lopsided playoff win in franchise history with a 104-94 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Friday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Norris Cole scored 18, and the Heat pulled out a tight win after blasting the Bulls 115-78 on Wednesday. This time, Chicago refused to go quietly. Never mind that the Bulls were coming off the worst playoff loss in franchise history. Put aside the fact that the ailing Luol Deng and injured Kirk Hinrich (calf) remained sidelined, not to mention Derrick Rose, or that Nazr Mohammed got ejected in the second quarter for shoving James to the floor. The Heat simply had too much in the end. James hit just 6 of 17 shots and even got blocked on a layup by Nate Robinson in the third quarter. But the four-time MVP came through down the stretch, scoring 12 in the fourth. He and Cole hit two big 3-pointers. Bosh perked up after two quiet games, and


Chicago Bulls center Nazr Mohammed (48) pushes Miami Heat small forward LeBron James (6) to the floor during the first half of Game 3 of an NBA basketball playoffs Eastern Conference semifinal on Friday in Chicago. Mohammed was ejected after this play. Miami’s bench outscored Chicago’s 36-8. Carlos Boozer led Chicago with 21 points. Robinson and Jimmy Butler each scored 17. Joakim Noah added 15 points and 11 rebounds,

He doesn't appear to have had the best care – his is very matted and dirty underneath and will need to be groomed and probably totally shaved down to clean up. Despite his condition, Griffin is a friendly and loving boy. And although he is an older boy, he has plenty of love to share!

and Marco Belinelli had 16 points, but the Bulls couldn’t pull this one out. They were within 85-83 when Cole scored on a finger roll with about four minutes left and Miami started to take control

from there. James answered a 3-pointer by Belinelli with one of his own, and after Boozer hit a jumper for Chicago, Cole buried another 3 for the Heat to make it 96-88 with 1:48 remaining.

Red Wings tie series with Ducks at 3-3 DETROIT (AP) — Henrik Zetterberg scored his second goal 1:04 into overtime, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-3 win over the Anaheim Ducks in Game 6 on Friday night to extend their first-round series. Detroit blew a two-goal lead in the last 3 minutes of the third period, sending the team to a fourth OT in a series for the first time in franchise history. Emerson Etem and Bobby Ryan scored 51 seconds apart late in regulation to pull the Ducks into a 3-3 tie. Zetterberg, who scored a go-ahead goal 6:19 into the third period, had a shot to win it with about a minute left. But his shot hit the right post and slid across the crease. Second-seeded Anaheim will host seventh-seeded Detroit on Sunday night in the deciding game. Maple Leafs 2, Bruins 1 BOSTON — Tyler Bozak and Clarke MacArthur scored and James Reimer stopped 43 shots Friday night to help the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Boston Bruins 2-1 and stay alive in their first-round playoff series. Game 6 is Sunday in Toronto, with the decisive seventh game back in Boston on Monday, if necessary. Boston has won both games in Toronto in the series and has not lost on the Leafs’ home ice in the playoffs since 1959. Zdeno Chara scored for

Boston to cut the deficit to it 2-1 with 8:48 left. The Leafs killed off a delay-ofgame penalty in the last four minutes and then protected the lead when the Bruins pulled Tuukka Rask for an extra attacker with 1:11 left. Rask made 31 saves. Only once in their history have the Leafs come back to win a playoff series after falling behind 3-1: In the 1942 Stanley Cup finals, when Toronto won four straight to take the title after losing the first three games against Detroit. The Bruins are 152 in playoff series after taking a 3-1 lead, but they blew a 3-0 lead against Philadelphia in the 2010 Eastern Conference semifinals. Capitals 2, Rangers 1, OT WASHINGTON — Mike Ribeiro scored 9:24 into overtime, and the Capitals regained the momentum and the lead in their first-round playoff series. Ribeiro put in the puck after Troy Brouwer deflected a shot from the blue line. The Capitals lead the series 3-2. Game 6 is Sunday in New York. The home team has won every game in the series, with Washington taking the first two and New York pulling even in Games 3 and 4. The Capitals have been fighting history along the way: The franchise has lost eight playoff series in which it has held a twogame lead.
