Let the festivities begin Troy Strawberry Festival set to kick off tonight BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor firstname.lastname@example.org Heather Dorsten stood in the middle of Main Street in Troy Thursday morning, watching the action swirling around her. “It’s all coming together,” the Troy Strawberry Festival manager said as she watched workers setting up tents and booths in Downtown Troy. “You plan and plan and plan, then you just have to wait — it’s kind of like a wedding. We’ve done everything we can do to get things ready. We feel pretty good about things.” A festival unlike any other in the 36-year history of the Troy Strawberry Festival will kick off beginning tonight. For the first — and only — time, the festival will be moving from its traditional site on the levee in Troy to the downtown. Construction on the Adams Street Bridge necessitated the move. While the bulk of the festival will be held Saturday and Sunday in downtown Troy, tonight’s activities actually kick off near the festival’s traditional home on the levee. The cere-

Nonprofit organizations will be selling food and other items on the levee from 6-9 p.m. The Troy Music Boosters will be selling strawberry doughnuts at Troy Memorial Stadium today, before moving to a downtown booth Saturday and Sunday.

Getting the round mounds of delicious strawberry doughnuts to the masses is more of a challenge this year for the Troy Music Boosters. Yet, if anyone knows how to coordinate a large group of people with flawless precision in perfect harmony, it’s Kathy McIntosh. The Troy High School band director and music department chair said more than 500 volunteers started making the muchsought after treat at 2 p.m. Thursday for pre-orders and deliveries which started today. “Transporting lots of doughnuts from point A point B has been the challenge this year,” McIntosh said. The Troy Music Band Boosters will have strawberry glazed doughnuts — still $8 a dozen — available both at the Troy Memorial Stadium and will be available downtown at the festival site. The organization’s booth will be located on South Cherry Street near the Troy Local History Library and Troy Bike Shop. McIntosh has the doughnut statistics down to a Trojan ‘T.’ “We sell 54 dozen doughnuts every seven minutes,” McIntosh said. “So getting that many doughnuts from the fryers to the downtown site was something we had to think about this year.” Not much has changed since the Troy Music Boosters began their main fundraiser in 1980. The famous recipe with its signature strawberry glaze has had the doughnuts “selling like hot cakes” for 32 years. It’s non-profits such as the Troy Music Boosters which benefit from the Troy Strawberry Festival to supplement its bottom line for all students involved in music from grades 6 through high school, McIntosh said. “On a good year, this is basically the only fundraiser we do,” McIntosh said. “The money goes towards music, instruments, contest fees,gas for our semi for marching band event – basically we would have to change a lot of the things we do if we didn’t have this.” For more information about the Troy Music Boosters visit www.troymusicboosters.com.

Following a trip to Japan last month, Troy city officials said the visit strengthened economic ties with parent companies including Honda. Mayor Michael Beamish, director of service and safety Patrick Titterington and Troy Area of Commerce Director J.C. Wallace visited last month, which was funded by the Troy Development Council, a not-for-profit organization funded by local governments and area businesses. The three city officials spent four days in the sister state of Ohio, called Saitama Prefecture, meeting with government officials and top managers at companies. “We thanked them for their business and also talked about growth and expansion,” Beamish said. “The whole idea is continuing the relationship building and trust.” Over the course of the week-long trip, they met with heads of three current companies,
Honda Motors, F&P and F-Tech, Inc., and two prospective companies, Honda Logistics and Harves. They had also planned to meet with the CEO of Gokoh but he was ill.The chief operating officer/president of F Tech, Tsugo Kimura, even rescheduled a business trip to accommodate the Troy leaders. “They were really gracious,” Wallace said. “All the senior managers had been to Troy, so we didn’t have to acquaint them with the city. Some had lived here.” They also talked to employees at Panasonic, based in Osaka. Troy’s Panasonic operation closed in 2006 after industry technology became outdated. Beamish said Troy has maintained relations with the company with the hope of bringing the business back to Troy. In Takahashi, Troy’s sister city, they met to a couple elementary schools and attended a business expo with 120 companies represented. Beamish, Titterington and Wallace also
• CONTINUED FROM A1 driveway until Thursday, when it was moved to the festival grounds. Money raised for the raffling of the house goes to CASA’s general fund. “It will be used to advocate for abused and neglected kids,” Sanders said. CASA places these children with a courtappointed special advocate, as determined by the Miami County Juvenile Court, and follows each case until the child is permanently placed. Volunteer Rob Walker arrived Thursday afternoon to take the playhouse down to the Strawberry Festival grounds, where it will be on display at the CASA booth. Raffle tickets will be sold Saturday and Sunday for $3 each or four for $10. The winner will be announced at 5:30 Sunday. Henson said raising money to build the $1,200 playhouse was difficult. “Building the house had some challenges, but honestly the most challenging was fundraising,” he said. The boys collected money from local businesses and community members and then purchased the building kit from distributor Whispering Oaks Gazebos in Tipp City. Henson was about $200 shy,

appeared on a TV segment, talking about business relations with Japan. “That relationship-building allows us to have the Asian businesses we have today,” Beamish said. “It says we’re doing something right.” Wallace noted that Troy operations of Honda and F&P still exceeded investment and employment goals despite the faltering international economy and tsunami and earthquake last year. Japan has also faced problems with the rising value of the yen and electric unreliability because of their previous dependence on nuclear energy. Troy city officials say they will continue to maintain close relations with local governments and businesses in Japan. “We would not have nearly the success we have without international companies — there are 13 or 14 Asian and European companies, which is unheard of for a city this size — if it weren’t for these trade missions,” Titterington said.

but the company allowed him to pay the remainder later, also through donations. Shingles and paint were later provided free of charge from Schaefer & Co. Roofing and Sherwin-Williams, respectively. Jill said the house offers good-natured fun and practicality that appeals to both children and adults alike. “It’s got a full side door, so I said you could use it as a gardening shed, not just as a playhouse,” said Jill, who is a member of CASA. It could also be a cozy place for camp-out of sorts: “My daughter actually slept out here last night with her friends.” The trio said they will miss the fruits of their labor a bit, as will Jill, though she admitted, “now I can pull in the driveway.”

Department of Development, said that West Milton is getting the funding because the block grant seeks to help in eliminating and preventing populated areas from getting run down. While the award of this grant will do a lot for West Milton, Kline said that the end result requires work and commitment from the city as well. Kline will be contacting a few firms for pricing and contracting for the first phase, which he hopes is the only phase. While the first phase costs a couple thousand dollars, a second phase could cost up to $10,000. “I’m holding my breath that the property is given a clean bill of health,” Kline said. While the city will not be able to move forward with the project until January 2013 because of the wait for the release of the CDBG funds, Kline said that there is plenty of preparation to do before then. West Milton will commit $25,000 of its 2013 budget toward the construction project. Besides environmental reviews, the city will hire an engineer to come up with bid specifications this fall in preparation for next year. According to Kline, to make the project a success, West Milton’s downtown businesses and property owners should expand and new businesses should open up as well.

A familiar building in downtown West Milton is set to be demolished and be replaced early next year with a parking lot for the public. Municipal Manager Matt Kline announced on May 18 in a memo to the mayor and the city council that the Miami County Board of Commissioners agreed to provide West Milton with $90,000 of its 2012 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) formula funds toward the task. “I truly believe this is a true economic development shot in the arm for our downtown,” Kline said. “This will position us to make our empty downtown retail shops much more attractive.” The building, 12 S. Miami St. across from the old opera house, was known as Paul Vance Products (PVP), a plastics manufacturer company for parts of fireworks. When the city purchased the building in 2010 under the leadership of Municipal Manager Tony Howard, ideas were tossed around in regards to what to do with it. Kline said that is as far as it went. “From what I can gather, the idea or plan was never really communicated by the previous administration,” Kline said. As a result of the city’s desire to remove this building, Nikki Reese, Community Development program manager of Miami County’s

It also provides a timely signal that, though we are on our way out of the country, we remain committed to doing whatever we can to ensure it never again becomes a haven for terrorism. The sacrifice of the 33 Australians killed in Afghanistan, as well as the 200 who have been wounded, demands no less. That said, there is a need for caution and realism about what lies ahead. For all the hope surrounding the 2014 deadline and the ability of Afghans to fight their own war, the prospects remain challenging. They would be transformed if peace talks with the Taliban were able to make progress. But hopes for them are bedevilled by the situation in Pakistan, whose government continues to allow the insurgents a virtual free rein and seeks to exploit for its own ends the vital supply routes from the port of Karachi needed to service NATO forces in Afghanistan. Much has been achieved in Afghanistan. But much remains to be done. And the need to do whatever is needed to ensure the country does not again become a base for international terrorism will be as vital to Australia’s national interests after 2014 as it is now.

I’m berry excited for a downtown festival Whether it’s the strawberries painted along Main Street or events held prior to the annual Strawberry Festival, I always know when the festival is getting close. My clue usually comes via phone call from my best friend Triplet. “Hey, can you get me some strawberry doughnuts this year? People at work will kill me if I don’t bring in some.” Now I’ll do anything for a friend, especially Triplet. So today I transported 20 dozen strawberry doughnuts in the back of my car and delivered them to Urbana where she works. You read correctly — 20 dozen strawberry doughnuts. Twenty. No joke. There’s nothing more humbling that writing a check for $160 strictly for doughnuts. I felt like the “Hamburglar,” only sneaking in cartons of doughnuts instead of cheeseburgers. Have you ever handed over cartons of doughnuts and exchanged money in parking lot? Let me tell ya it’s a thrill. What I won’t do for a friend. Amen. As well all know this year’s Strawberry Festival is going to be
Melanie Yingst Troy Daily News Columnist held in our own backyard in downtown Troy. Sure it’s going to be different without the parade and the levee will be empty, but I am excited to be part of Troy history. There will never be another festival downtown in many years to come (knock on wood). Now, I’ve already read a few grumblings about how some of you out there are “boycotting” the festival just because it’s downtown this year. So I thought I would compile a list to hopefully change your mind and to step out of your comfort zone to enjoy our beloved festival: 1. No Parade: Yes, I too, am going to miss the parade. When I lived downtown, I would hear cars parking at 6 a.m. to jockey for the

perfect spot along the streets of Troy. Heck, people would have their chairs placed along the parade route at 11 p.m. on Friday night! This year, without the parade, just think: we all get to sleep in for the first time in 30 plus years. As someone who values anytime to sleep in, I am going to take full advantage of tomorrow’s snooze button. Sure the kids don’t have to get on the floats at the break of dawn to wave to the crowds. So grab a dozen strawberry doughnuts today and enjoy the beautiful Saturday morning in the peace and quiet. It will be back next year! 2. Embrace public transportation: As Midwestern as we all Ohians are, we don’t have mass transit opportunities come our way too often. All too often we are the panicked “out of towners” that look lost on the Metro lines in major U.S. cities. Let’s test our skills and patience and enjoy the shuttle buses that are being provided this year. This will eliminate the “festival-angst” of trying to find the closest parking spot to the levee, which we all know, is a challenge in and of itself. Who doesn’t like a
bus ride now and then? Let the drivers do the work for us! 3. Downtown Shopping: Sometimes we all get so focused on getting to our destination as we prepare for the “round-about” on the Square, we often miss the store fronts of our beautiful city. So once you get off the shuttle bus, grab a chocolate strawberry and peruse the beautiful and unique stores we have in our town. You may just find that perfect gift, met a local store owner that can solve your business needs or find the next place you want to treat your friends at one of our great restaurants downtown. Just because the festival will be different this year, doesn’t’ mean it won’t be as enjoyable. I’m excited to see the changes, support our local organizations by eating everything in sight and getting to visit with all the people that braved our new location. But I will be sleeping in tomorrow morning. See you at the parade next year! “Twin” Melanie Yingst appears on Fridays in the Troy Daily News. Did we ever mention she’s best friends with a strawberry queen?

Sex-selection abortion ban rejected by House
We are the only advanced country left in the world that still doesn’t restrict sex-selection abortion in any way. — Rep. Trent Franks, R.-Ariz.
or private family matters in this way.” The bill had little chance of becoming law. The Democratic-controlled Senate would likely have ignored it, and the House brought it up under a procedure requiring a two-thirds majority for passage. The vote was 246-168 — 30 votes short of that majority. Twenty Democrats voted for it, while seven Republicans opposed it. The bill’s author, Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., said before the vote that regardless of the outcome, the point would be made. “When people vote on this, the world will know where they really stand.” Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the House’s No. 2 Democrat, said he thought the bill was introduced because “somebody decided politically that this was a difficult place to put people in.” The legislation would have made it a federal
offense, subject to up to five years in prison, to perform, solicit funds for or coerce a woman into having a sexselection abortion. Bringing a woman into the country to obtain such an abortion would also be punishable by up to five years in prison. While doctors would not have an affirmative responsibility to ask a woman her motivations for an abortion, health workers could be imprisoned for up to a year for not reporting known or suspected violations of the ban on sex-based abortions. An earlier version of the bill also made it illegal to abort a fetus based on race. “We are the only advanced country left in the world that still doesn’t restrict sex-selection abortion in any way,” said Franks, who has also collided with abortion-rights groups recently over a bill he supports to ban abortions in the District of Columbia after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House on Thursday fell short in an effort to ban abortions based on the sex of the fetus as Republicans and Democrats made an electionyear appeal for women’s votes. The legislation would have made it a federal crime to perform or force a woman to undergo a sex-based abortion, a practice most common in some Asian countries where families wanting sons abort female fetuses. It was a rare social issue to reach the House floor in a year when the economy has dominated the political conversation, and Republicans, besieged by Democratic claims that they are waging a war on women, struck back by trying to depict the vote as a women’s rights issue. “It is violence against women,” said Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., of abortions of female fetuses. “This is the real war on women.” The White House, most Democrats, abortion rights groups and some AsianAmerican organizations opposed the bill, saying it could lead to racial profiling of Asian-American women and subject doctors who do not report suspected sexselection abortions to criminal charges. “The administration opposes gender discrimination in all forms, but the end result of this legislation would be to subject doctors to criminal prosecution if they fail to determine the motivations behind a very personal and private decision,” White House spokeswoman Jamie Smith said in a statement. “The government should not intrude in medical decisions

Madonna kicks off world tour in Israel JERUSALEM (AP) — Pop music star Madonna treated tens of thousands of ecstatic fans in Israel to the inaugural show of her “MDNA” world tour on Thursday, performing in a country where she has long claimed a special bond. The “Material Girl,” a devotee of a form of Jewish mysticism known as Kabbalah, danced, bumped, grinded and vogued in flashy costumes to a raucous crowd at Ramat Gan stadium near Tel Aviv. Madonna emerged on stage in a confessional, breaking through its glass window using a rifle, which she then aimed at the audience. She wore a skin-tight black outfit to sing her first song, “Girl Gone Wild,” accompanied by dancers dressed as monks. She went on to sing “Give Me All Your Luvin’” and a mash-up of the classic “Express Yourself ” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” dressed as a marching band conductor. While some artists have opted to boycott Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians, the 53-year-old Madonna’s ties to the Jewish state have only strengthened in the last few years. She has made personal
entourage. She spent the days leading up to the performance rehearsing for the glitzy show and visiting Kabbalah centers. Her spiritual serenity may have been challenged by Israel’s aggressive paparazzi, who have been camped outside her beachfront hotel and near the stadium where she is performing. Video of her rehearsals has leaked onto the Internet, and photos of Madonna and her children have appeared in Israel’s newspapers almost daily since she arrived. For years, violence kept musicians away from Israeli stages. Now, with the ebb of the Palestinian uprising over the last decade, performers planning concerts have faced pressure from activists to cancel their appearances in Israel as political punishment.

Ex-Warner Bros. exec becomes Disney studio chief
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Walt Disney Co. said Thursday that it hired former president of Warner Bros. Entertainment, Alan Horn, to lead its movie studio as chairman, in a personnel move that attempts to right the wrongs that led to blockbuster bomb “John Carter.” Horn oversaw the hugely successful runs of the “Harry Potter” and “The Dark Knight” movies at Warner Bros. and is one of the highest-profile executives in Hollywood. Horn had stepped down at Warner Bros. in April 2011 and had a consulting agreement through 2013. He’s also credited as a producer on the upcoming “Hobbit” movies. Horn starts at Disney on June 11, just under two months after former chairman Rich Ross stepped down in a move widely seen as taking responsibility for “John Carter,” the science-fiction movie set on Mars which caused an epic $200 million write-off for Disney. Horn will oversee worldwide production, distribution and marketing for live action and animated films from Disney, Pixar and Marvel and movies made by Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks Studios. “He’s earned the respect of the industry for driving tremendous, sustained creative and financial success, and is also known and admired for his impeccable taste and integrity,” said Disney CEO Bob Iger in a statement. “He brings all of this to his new role leading our studio group, and I truly look forward to working with him.” “I’m incredibly excited about joining The Walt Disney Company, one of the most iconic and beloved entertainment companies in the world,” said Horn in the statement. Horn helped Warner Bros., a division of Time Warner Inc., become the global box office leader for seven years of his 12-year tenure. He oversaw all eight films in the “Harry Potter” series, as well as “The Dark Knight,” ”Sherlock Holmes,” ”Million Dollar Baby,” and the “Ocean’s Eleven” trilogy. Before joining Warner Bros., Horn cofounded and was CEO of Castle Rock Entertainment, which made such films as “A Few Good Men,” ”The Shawshank Redemption” and “When Harry Met Sally.” Horn has also served as president and chief operating officer of News Corp.’s 20th Century Fox. Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Barry Meyer wished Horn well in a statement. “He’s been a part of some of the most popular films produced in the last decade, and we’re very happy for him,” Meyer said.

Biography recounts Obama’s Tipp Players to present dinner path to Rev. Jeremiah Wright show
WASHINGTON (AP) — A new biography that traces Barack Obama’s path from birth — yes, in Hawaii — to Harvard Law School, sketches the pragmatism and politics of the future president’s early choices, including his first connections to Jeremiah Wright, the inflammatory preacher whom Obama severed ties with during the 2008 presidential campaign. Obama didn’t land in Wright’s OBAMA church by happenstance, David Maraniss writes in “Barack Obama: The Story.” As a young community organizer in Chicago, Obama needed the help of pastors from local churches, but wasn’t himself a church member. Obama, “an inveterate doubter,” by Maraniss’ account, felt mounting pressure to join a church, and a growing desire to explore his relationship with God. A pastor working with Obama in the Developing Communities Project advised him to find a church outside the project’s boundaries to avoid alienating any of the other pastors, and sent him to meet a preacher outside the district. That pastor, in turn, referred
Obama to Wright, whose Trinity United Church of Christ stood just across the street from the boundary. “I used to tease Barack, ‘You joined a church as close to the boundaries as you could get,’ ” said the Rev. Alvin Love at L i l y d a l e Baptist, who’d helped Obama find a church. Obama didn’t become fully engaged in Wright’s church until he returned to Chicago after his years at Harvard, “but the process started then, in October 1987,” Maraniss writes. Wright helped Obama embrace Christianity, officiated at his wedding and baptized Obama and his two daughters. Obama quit the church after the preacher’s incendiary teachings became a political issue in 2008. Maraniss’ book, on sale June 19 by Simon & Schuster, fills in details on Obama’s early years and family. A more nuanced portrait emerges of Obama’s maternal grandparents, whom Obama lived with from 1971 to 1979, when he graduated from high school. His grandmother,
Madelyn Dunham, is widely remembered as a strong woman who worked her way up from secretary to become one of the state’s first female bank vice presidents. Obama has painted his grandfather, Stanley Dunham, as a man with a wild streak early on who settled down to sell furniture and life insurance. Both are deceased. In an interview with Maraniss, Obama said his grandmother, known as Toot, began drinking more and more as her responsibilities weighed her down. “That’s where you started noticing her alcoholism,” Obama said. She would come home, “exhausted from work, tightly wound and go into her room. They (she and Stan) had become more isolated.” Obama likened his grandparents, with their heavy drinking, to characters on television’s “Mad Men,” about advertising executives and their families in the 1960s. “It explains my grandparents, their tastes,” he said. The character Peggy, who started as a secretary and rose in the firm, “That’s my grandmother, you know, starting out with the lowlevel secretary job and working her way up. But that whole smokin’ and drinkin’ …”
TIPP CITY — The Tipp City Players will present a dinner and show at 6:30 p.m. June 21-23 at the Tipp City Lutheran Church on the corner of Main and Third Streets.

Talk to brother about your concerns Dear Annie: I am a freshman in high school, and my older brother, "Adam," is a junior. Although I wouldn't consider myself popular, I have a great group of friends. Recently, I noticed that Adam is flirting on Facebook with a girl in my grade. For the most part, it's innocent and playful, but it makes me beyond uncomfortable. This girl brags a lot about drinking and being sexually active. Adam is a smart kid with a bright future ahead of him. I don't want him involved with this girl, even if it seems innocent right now. To be honest, I think he's using her because of her loose reputation, and I've lost respect for him. How do I confront him about it without getting into an argument? I want him to know how uncomfortable it makes me feel. I'd like to tell my parents, but I don't want to be a tattletale. Should I just mind my own business? â€” Unhappy in Omaha Dear Omaha: Some insecure girls intentionally cultivate a loose reputation in order to attract guys, and it is not unusual for high school boys to find that enticing. Talk to Adam. Tell him that his interest in this girl makes you question his integrity, and you hope he won't use her to satisfy his sexual needs. Let him know it's not only her reputation that is at stake. And point out that there is also a good possibility that any high school junior or senior boy who has sex with this girl could be charged with a crime because she is underage. It hardly seems worth risking his future. That said, let's hope his interest in her is purely for the sake of friendship. Dear Annie: Last week, I received a fancy wedding invitation. The next day, the bride emailed, saying she hoped I could attend and is looking forward to seeing me at the wedding. Then she added that she hopes I don't mind watching all the little kids at the ceremony and reception. The bride is in great shape financially. Is it to be expected in this economy that one could be invited to a wedding only to provide a service? How should I respond? â€” Kentucky Dear Kentucky: Even if you babysit for a living, the bride was terribly rude to invite you with the assumption that you should take on this responsibility. You have four choices: You can say yes to her proposition. You can say yes, but quote your fee for babysitting or tell her that it will be your wedding gift to the couple. You can turn down the invitation. You can accept the invitation, but tell the bride that you are not available to babysit â€” in which case, please couch it in language that says you wouldn't want to miss a moment of the event because you were distracted by the children. Dear Annie: I totally agree with Judy Hou, who is trying to get readers involved with the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. We were taught in pharmacy law class that certain medications are classified by their potential for abuse and risk of physical or psychological dependence. Schedule 1 drugs have a high potential for abuse, have no currently accepted medicinal use and lack safety information. Drugs in this category include heroin and LSD. Schedules 2-5 also have potential for abuse and dependence, but have accepted medicinal uses. These include Oxycontin, Percocet and Valium. I believe that nicotine should be included as a Schedule 1 substance and be declared illegal. Unfortunately, politics will prevent this from happening, and we will have to continue to encourage our youth to make intelligent decisions regarding cigarettes, drug and alcohol use. I am very thankful that Florida has many smoke-free places to eat and work. â€” A Florida Pharmacist Dear Pharmacist: Making a substance illegal will not prevent people from abusing it. While we understand your position, we are certain to hear from a great many readers who disagree with your solution.

HINTS FROM HELOISE
Donâ€™t forget to have your cholesterol checked Dear Readers: The following letter was one of many that were sent to the Lubbock (Texas) Avalanche-Journal, which runs my column. I was there for a speech for the Lubbock Womenâ€™s Club, and we had a Hints for Heloise contest. When I was at the paper for a â€œmeet and greetâ€? with several readers, Shelly was one of them. It was wonderful to see her again and know that a friendly â€œchallengeâ€? about a cholesterol blood test helped her go see her doctor. I was speaking the previous time for an American Heart Association womenâ€™s health fair and luncheon. Please read on. â€” Heloise
Hints from Heloise Columnist â€œThrough the years, I have read and used so many Heloise Hints. But several years ago, Heloise was in Lubbock on a speaking engagement. My store provided the books that were being sold for the benefit. â€œHeloise and I were talking, and the nurses came in to check our cholesterol. She turned to me
and said, â€™I will if you will.â€™ When I got the results, I contacted my doctor and have been treated for my cholesterol. It probably would have been some time before I had this done or was treated.â€? â€” Shelly Gonzales, via email TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: As a business professional, I do a lot of traveling. After a long day, I prefer eating dinner in my room. There often is not a table that will accommodate my meal. One evening, as I got out the hotel ironing board to prepare my clothes for the next dayâ€™s meeting, I realized that the answer had been with me on
every trip. I now use the ironing board as my meal space. â€” Sandy, via email PHONE PHOTOS Dear Readers: Did you know that you might be able to edit images on your smartphone? You usually can fix red eyes, crop photos and even rotate them. When an image is selected, an edit button should appear, which is what happens with most of the phones at Heloise Central. Click the button and a tool bar will appear at the bottom of your screen. While not a broad selection of tools, you still can improve photos. â€” Heloise

ARLO AND JANIS
HOROSCOPE Friday, June 1, 2012 If you can in the year ahead, involve yourself in endeavors that permit you to use a large number of your own ideas. Arrangements where you are free to think for yourself and express your thoughts will be the most successful. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You’ll receive far greater gratification by trying to advance your personal interests rather than spending time half-heartedly promoting the positions of another. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Several people with whom you’ll be involved will sense that you can be trusted with certain secrets that they’re bursting to tell somebody. More than one person is likely to confide in you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Small talk might be more pleasing to your ears than weighty subjects. If you’re looking to spend time with friends, find those who don’t take themselves or life too seriously. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Choose your words carefully so that what you say cannot be distorted or taken out of context and then reflect poorly on you when repeated. Some people are just looking to make trouble. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If you plan ahead carefully, you should be able to make your present efforts fit comfortably into your future plans and objectives. Looking to the future has its merits. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Your abilities to research, probe and detect are very astute at this point in time. Use this day to get in touch with an associate about a matter on which you sense that he or she has been holding back. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If someone offers you some suggestions that are far better than your thoughts about a matter of mutual interest, don’t let your pride get in the way. It behooves you to employ the best plan available. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Strive to be methodical where your work is concerned. If you make a detailed list and follow it to the letter, you’ll find that it will enhance your productivity and industriousness. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Your perceptions regarding involvements that hold elements of chance could be more accurate than usual. Don’t bet your entire wallet, but it’s OK to wager a dollar or two. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — When your family holds a council about a matter that affects everybody, don’t restrain your opinions. You might be the one who has ideas that surpass theirs. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Don’t be surprised if your mental processes are working overtime and your head is flooded with dynamite ideas. Be sure to jot them down — many will be better than usual. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — You’re likely to have a good head for spotting bargains right now. You stand a good chance of finding something you’ve wanted for a long time at the right price. Don’t hesitate to take advantage of the moment. COPYRIGHT 2012 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Friday, June 1, the 153rd day of 2012. There are 213 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 1, 1912, Paramount Pictures had its beginnings as Adolph Zukor incorporated the Famous Players Film Co., which later merged with the Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play Co. On this date: • In 1792, Kentucky became the 15th state of the union. • In 1796, Tennessee
became the 16th state. • In 1812, President James Madison, in a message to Congress, recounted what he called Britain’s “series of acts hostile to the United States as an independent and neutral nation”; Congress ended up declaring war. • In 1813, the mortally wounded commander of the USS Chesapeake, Capt. James Lawrence, gave the order, “Don’t give up the ship” during a losing battle with the British frigate
HMS Shannon in the War of 1812. • In 1967, the Beatles album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” was released. • Today’s Birthdays: Actor Richard Erdman is 87. Actor Andy Griffith is 86. Singer Pat Boone is 78. Actor-writer-director Peter Masterson is 78. Actor Morgan Freeman is 75. Actor Rene Auberjonois is 72. Opera singer Frederica von Stade is 67. Actor Brian Cox is 66.
Water main break leaves freeway flooded DETROIT (AP) — A water main break flooded part of a major Detroit freeway and the west side neighborhood that surrounds it Thursday, forcing motorists to abandon their submerged vehicles as nearby residents waded through waterlogged streets. The 42-inch pipe burst near Fenkell and Petoskey flooded a twoblock area before rolling down a nearby ramp and leaving a portion of the Lodge freeway submerged. Michigan Department of Transportation spokeswoman Kari Arend said about a half-dozen stalled vehicles required tow truck
service. A handful of motorists who were traveling the north-south freeway before it was closed needed to be rescued from their vehicles. “It looked like a little tidal wave coming down the street,” said Roger Beard, 58, who lives on the corner of Petoskey and Lodge service drive. Beard said he moved his 1991 Mercury Cougar to a side yard early Thursday afternoon, wading through nearly kneedeep water that already had begun seeping into his floorboards. “About five minutes later, I probably would have lost my car,” Beard said.
Detroit Water and Sewerage Department spokeswoman Mary Alfonso said late Thursday afternoon that the cause of the water main break wasn’t known but crews were working to shut off the water so they could find the break and repair it. She didn’t know how long repairs would take but expected they would be lengthy. “This is an emergency, so we’ll be 24-7,” Alfonso said. Ronda Long, who lives near the water main break, said she emerged from her home about 1 p.m. to find flooded streets and “water coming
up everywhere.” Her street had water levels about five to six inches over the curb. “This is making it worse to live in Detroit,” Long said. “I bet most people in Detroit don’t have insurance to pay for the damage. Look at that car it’s flooded.” The home health care aide who takes bus to work in the afternoon had to call into work Thursday and tell her boss that she couldn’t make it in because her bus stop was flooded. For AP Long, the flood cost her a Workers from the Detroit Water & Sewerage department day’s pay. look at an overflow on the west side of Detroit, “I think I should be Thursday. compensated by the city,” she said.

Tippecanoe’s Grant Koch — seen here winning the 800 at last week’s regional meet — will compete Saturday at the Division I State meet in Columbus.
Burning bright Tipp’s Wharton, Koch ready for state competition BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor firstname.lastname@example.org Sam Wharton has thrived on upper-echelon competition his entire career. Grant Koch has proved the past two weeks that he has the same fire in him. Saturday, they both plan on lighting up the track at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Koch has battled his way to a district and regional championship in the 800 over the past two weeks, while Wharton won the district race and was second to one TIPP CITY of the prime contenders in the regional 3,200 race — and both will be put to the test like never before at the Division I State track meet Saturday afternoon. And that’s just fine with them. “These two kids are some of the fiercest competitors I’ve ever worked with,” Tippecanoe distance coach Steve Verhoff said. “Competition is what makes them go.” But both had work to do to get to where they are throughout the season, strengthening opposite areas of their race. “Sam’s biggest asset is his endurance, but his biggest drawback going into the season was his speed,” Tippecanoe head coach Bob Crawford said. “The 3,200 was almost too short for him. And Grant, on the other hand, he’s really strong, and he started to show that in his sophomore season. But he didn’t have the endurance. “We had a strategy going into the season on how we wanted to proceed with these guys, and FILE PHOTO/LEE WOOLERY/SPEEDSHOT PHOTO now it’s coming to fruition.” And they’ll both need every bit of that training Tippecanoe’s Sam Wharton — seen here winning the 3,200 at the Miami County Invitational ■ See DEVILS on 18 — will compete at the state meet Saturday.
All the big guns Star power at the Memorial BY JOEL WALKER Sports Writer DUBLIN — Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk, Rory Mcllroy. The gang’s all here. “This is the strongest field we’ve had in a long time,” said Kaye Kessler, the former Columbus golf writer who was a public relations consultant during the early years of the tournament. What helps the Memorial is its position on the tour schedule — usually two weeks ahead of the U.S. Open, just the amount of time the players figure it takes to get ready for a major.
TDN AT THE MEMORIAL Woods, looking for his fifth Memorial win, got off to a good start with a 2-under 70. ‘I think the golf course was playing quick today,” Woods said. “It’s a hell of a test out there. And the wind is picking up a little bit. Hopefully we don’t get too much rain and this golf course plays quick the entire week” One late and negative development was Mickelson’s withdrawal after shooting 79 and pulling out with a bit of mental fatigue He said he also might have gone a little overboard for his wife Amy’s 40th birthday trip to Italy and Paris last month.

‘Marathon Man’ Isner falls in lengthy 5-setter PARIS (AP) — This, then, is who John Isner is for now: The Marathon Man of Tennis, the guy who plays and plays and plays, for hours on end, until the last set seems interminable. At Wimbledon two years ago, he won 70-68 in the fifth, the longest set and match in tennis history. At Roland Garros on Thursday, as afternoon gave way to evening, the 10th-seeded
American lost 7-6 (2), 4-6, 4-6, 63, 18-16 to Paul-Henri Mathieu of France in the second round, a 5-hour, 41-minute test of stamina and attention span. This one goes in the books as the second-longest match, by time, in French Open history. “I just didn’t get it done. I felt like I got caught in patterns that weren’t ideal for me,” said a somber Isner, whose exit means
there are no U.S. men in the third round for the first time since 2007. “I wasn’t going for my shots at certain points in the match, and that comes from a little bit of a lack of confidence.” If the 6-foot-9 Isner, who led Georgia to an NCAA title, is going to become more than a novelty act, he needs to win encounters like Thursday’s, and not because of the duration but
because it was a first-week Grand Slam match against a player ranked 261st who got into the field thanks to a wild-card invitation from the tournament. After finally converting his seventh match point Isner never had one an emotional Mathieu thanked the partisan crowd in the main stadium for willing him

Stallings quietly leads Memorial DUBLIN (AP) — Erik Compton considers the Memorial a special week no matter how he plays, knowing his second heart transplant came from a donor in Ohio. The opening round was even sweeter with three birdies on the back nine late Thursday afternoon at Muirfield Village for a 5under 67, leaving him oneshot out of the lead after a day that featured a timely rally by Rory McIlroy and a surprising departure by Phil Mickelson. When the day ended, Scott Stallings was atop the leaderboard with a 66 and hardly anyone noticed. Compton has been an AP PHOTO amazing story as long as he Scott Stallings hits out of a sand trap on the 14th hole has played golf. He had his during the first round of the Memorial at the Muirfield first heart transplant at 12, Village Golf Club in Dublin Thursday. played in the Walker Cup

The day before the tournament he spent the morning visiting transplant patients at the Ohio State medical center. • Not As Expected Mike Weir 83, Bo Weekley 82, Kevin Na 76, Phil Mickelson 79-WD and several scores in the mid-70s. Not as easy as some expected. “I’m surprised the scoring hasn’t been a little lower,” McIlroy said. “I know the greens are firm and there were a few tricky pin placements out there. “But I still felt someone would have gone a little lower this morning. Anyway, it’s nice to be under par (he shot 71) and it’s nice not to be too far away from the lead.”
Mayweather due to begin sentence LAS VEGAS (AP) — Free time is about to run out for Floyd Mayweather Jr., who is due to begin a three-month jail sentence in Las Vegas stemming from a hair-pulling, arm-twisting attack in September 2010 on the mother of three of his children. The unbeaten five-division champion’s legal and ring advisers weren’t immediately commenting Thursday about Mayweather’s scheduled Friday morning surrender before Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa. The judge sentenced him Dec. 22 for his guilty plea to reduced charges in the domestic battery case. Mayweather’s lawyers, Karen Winckler and Richard Wright, said previously they didn’t plan to seek another postponement or delay. Mayweather, now 35, was initially due to begin his sentence Jan. 6. But
ramped up the scrutiny, McIlroy took a quadruple bogey on his third hole of the tournament when he went from the bunker to the water, back over the pond to the drop area on a forward tee, and then into another bunker. He blasted onto the green and took two putts for a 7, and there were murmurs from the crowd to see him at 4-over par so early. The next 15 holes were much better, and he rallied for a 71. “It wasn’t the start I wanted to get off to, being 4 over through three holes, especially after the last few weeks,” McIlroy said. “I was just like, ‘Here we go again.’ But I hung in there well, and proud of myself for the way I just fought back. To finish the round under par, I thought was a really good
effort.” Tiger Woods, playing in the group behind him, chopped up the 18th hole for a double bogey and still managed a 2-under 70. “I didn’t do anything great and I didn’t do anything poorly,” Wood said. “I was just very consistent. And I think with the golf course being the way it’s set up, you just have to be that way. … Over the next three days, hopefully I can play as well as I did today.” Mickelson wasn’t anywhere near those scores, and when his round ended, he was nowhere near the golf course. Mickelson walked out of the scoring hut after signing for a 79 his worst score ever at the Memorial and said he was withdrawing because of mental fatigue.

To be able to play here, regardless of whether I play good or bad, it’s just always a nice week.” It could have been another bad week for McIlroy.

Saragosa agreed at the last minute to let him remain free long enough to fight Miguel Cotto on May 5 in Las Vegas. The fighter who goes by the nickname “Money” won the bout and a guaranteed $32 million. Cotto was paid $8 million. Mayweather’s stint in the high-rise Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas is expected to limit his ability to train for another fight. At least for the first week, Mayweather will be segregated for his protection from the other 3,200 inmates, Las Vegas police Officer Bill Cassell said.

Backs against the wall Up 2-0, Heat have Celtics fighting for playoff lives MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Heat know what’s coming from the Boston Celtics. “Their all,” Dwyane Wade said. That’s what usually happens when one team is fighting to save its season and in this case, the Big Four era in Boston might be at stake as well. The Eastern Conference finals shift to Boston on Friday night for Game 3, with the Heat holding a 2-0 lead after staving off perhaps the Celtics’ best shot to win a classic. Boston’s core of Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen combined to score 96 points in Game 2, the most they’ve ever scored in a game together, and it still wasn’t enough as the Heat held serve at home with a 115-111 overtime victory. So now, in a season of challenges for the Celtics, the toughest test yet has arrived. Only 14 teams in NBA history have rallied from an 0-2 hole to win a best-of-seven series, and the Celtics haven’t done it since 1969. “We still know we have to play better,” Boston coach Doc Rivers said Thursday. “But I think our guys know now that we can play (with Miami). And I don’t know if they did know it or not, but after Game 1, it was such a bad loss for us, I think we needed to have that type of game last night. Obviously, we’d have rather won it. But I think our guys are very confident going into Game 3.” There were whispers that the Celtics were finished when the season started with eight losses in 12 games, when they lost seven of eight games to sputter into the All-Star break with a losing record, when they lost their playoff opener to Atlanta, and again when they lost homecourt advantage to Philadelphia in the second
Miami Heat fans celebrate during the second half of Game 2 in their NBA Eastern Conference finals series against the Boston Celtics Wednesday in Miami. round. Trailing Miami in this series is just the latest installment on that list, which the Heat say is ridiculous anyway. “We don’t buy any of that,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “All the labels that people are trying to throw on this team, forget about them. This is a championship team. They’ve proven themselves. And so the DNA that they have inside of them, that’s why they’re where they are right now. … You get them in a seven-game series with the experience that they have, they’re as tough as anybody.” Spoelstra got home from the arena in Miami early Thursday morning and quickly started studying film, which meant he got to relive how Rondo shredded the Heat in Game 2. Rondo finished with a remarkable 44-point, 10assist, eight-rebound effort, playing every moment of a 53-minute game. Spoelstra said afterward that Miami has no idea how to fully stop Rondo, and suggested on Thursday that while there are some things the Heat can try, he also knows the Celtics’ guard won’t be
completely shut down. “Let’s be objective about it,” Spoelstra said. “He was sensational.” The play that the Celtics were talking about after Game 2 wasn’t one of Rondo’s 16 made shots, but one of the eight he missed in overtime, in a tie game. Rondo was guarded by Miami power forward Udonis Haslem, a mismatch that got worse when Haslem took his eyes off Rondo for a moment. That’s when Rondo started his drive, getting met near the rim by Wade. The Celtics wanted a foul. Rondo was furious. No call came. Miami took 47 foul shots in Game 2, while Boston took 29. It was something Boston spoke volumes about Wednesday night, and Rivers addressed it again Thursday. “They are going to shoot a lot of free throws,” Rivers said of the Heat. “But we have to as well. And I thought Rondo was extremely aggressive last night.” Wade and LeBron James don’t need to be reminded that a two-game lead in a series while it usually means good things doesn’t guarantee much of any-
thing. Wade led a Heat comeback from a 2-0 series deficit against Dallas in the 2006 NBA finals. James rallied his Cleveland team from two games down to win the Eastern Conference crown a year later against Detroit. Don’t tell them this series is over. They know better. “All we did was win two at home,” Wade said. “That’s a very good team over there that we know is going to give us everything their all come the next four days when they get two at home in Boston.” Rivers said the Celtics believe they’re getting closer to figuring out how to beat Miami. His team seems to agree. “I’m not concerned at all,” Allen said. “After the game I think that everybody was, I say everybody was in good spirits, but at the same time we were disappointed. We were upset.” Rivers knows there are tons of questions about the future of the Celtics, especially if they lose a onesided series to Miami for the second straight year. The Heat needed five games to oust Boston in last season’s East semifinals.

Devils can’t afford another off night NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey Devils are in danger of becoming the latest team to be steamrolled by the Los Angeles Kings. The Devils played one of their worst games of the postseason in dropping the series opener 2-1 in overtime Wednesday night here, and they can’t afford another sub-par effort. Lose two games at home to a team that has posted a 9-0 record on the road this postseason, and the guys who lug around hockey’s biggest prize might start shining it in earnest after Saturday night’s contest at the Prudential Center. The situation is desperate for coach Peter DeBoer’s team. While they missed chances to win the opener, they also made a slew of mistakes that ranged from bad dump-ins of pucks,
being tentative on the ice, failing to shoot when the shot was there, and leaving the Kings open. The most glaring error came in the overtime when Anze Kopitar scored on a breakaway. The problems can be fixed. The bad news is that the Kings weren’t exactly at their best either … and still won. And if you’re a Devil, here’s a scary fact. The Kings have played some of their best hockey in Game 2s of their three previous series, beating Vancouver, St. Louis and Phoenix by a combined 13-4 margin to take commanding 2-0 series lead back to Los Angeles each time. “The comforting thing for me is when I listen to the comments of our players last night, they were dead-on,” DeBoer said. “We weren’t
good enough. We have to be better. We got over the earlygame jitters. We started to play a little bit better. But, you know, as a group, we’ve got to bring more to win this time of year.” The Devils carried the play in the third period and had two great chances to take the lead. Captain Zach Parise failed to put a bouncing puck in the net four minutes into the period and defenseman Mark Fayne missed a wide open net with roughly 10 minutes left in regulation. “We didn’t play at our best, I think,” Devils center Travis Zajac said. “We were a little nervous in the first period, a little tentative. You could see that. We weren’t making plays. We were throwing the puck away a little too much. We weren’t moving our feet and getting on the forecheck like we usu-
ally do. For us, we felt that, yeah, we missed an opportunity because we were able to hang around against this team, you know, not playing our best game. Still having a chance to win, that makes us feel pretty good that we can play better, be a little bit more successful.” Kings captain Dustin Brown said that the Darryl Sutter-coached team has done a good job of not being satisfied after winning Game 1. “In Game 2, it’s been our starts,” Brown said. “We’ve jumped on teams early, most noticeably against St. Louis, we had a 4-0 lead after the first and that goes a long way. Some teams get a win and they are satisfied. This group hasn’t been and it goes a long way when you come out in Game 2 and really put it to them. “It’s demoralizing.”

Devils ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 and then some after moving up to D-I from D-II in the offseason. Wharton — who was second in D-II in the 3,200 last year as a sophomore — enters Saturday’s race with the 13th-best regional time at 9:31.52, a fairly slow time for the junior. He was second in his region to Anderson’s Nick Vogele, who is one of the top contenders in the race despite his slow regional time, as well. “I think Sam can give Mr. Vogele a run for his money,” Crawford said. “Things went kind of slow at the
regional. They were feeling each other out a little, I think. Once Saturday gets here and it’s for all the marbles, I think we’re going to see a different race.” And Wharton is also used to D-I competition after cross country season in the fall — where he also finished second to another of Saturday’s top contenders, Reynoldsburg’s Tsehaye Kiluf. “Vogele and Kiluf are going to be a tough challenge for Sam. But he’s there to run with the big boys. He did it in cross country already,” Verhoff said.
“Sam always rises to the occasion on a big stage.” Which is what happened earlier this season when Wharton threw down a 9:10 during a high-profile race at Louisville — a time better than any seed time in all three divisions at state. “He ran a 9:10 at a big race in Louisville. He thrives on that kind of competition,” Verhoff said. “It’ll be a tough challenge, but he rises to those challenges — and I expect him to do that again this week.” Koch has made a habit of rising to the competition in the past few weeks, as well.
Seeded on the cusp of even being able to qualify in the 800 prior to the district meet, the junior handily won the race. And then at last week’s regional, nowhere near being on the competition’s radar, Koch made a strong move in the final lap to take the lead and then did everything possible to hold on for the win. “The look on his face was priceless,” Crawford said. “At the Wayne Invitational, Grant started believing in himself, and that mental aspect makes a huge difference. He came up to me
after the race and said, ‘coach, I’ve still got a little bit left.’ Saturday, he’s going to have to leave it all on the track.” “That was a great moment, but we try to keep it in perspective, too,” Verhoff said. “Now we’re thinking, ‘how great is it going to be to see him on the podium?’ He won the regional, but we don’t want him to rest on that, and that’s something we’ve instilled in these boys — enjoy it at the time then get back to work.” Koch goes into Saturday with the ninth-best time of
1:56.03. “I’ve worked with these guys since they were freshman. In fact, they were the first group I worked with as freshmen, so it’s neat in that regard,” Verhoff said. “I’ve been able to watch them grow up, mature and have a lot of success. “To see these two juniors here against all of these seniors … Sam and Grant definitely could go down as two of the best distance runners to come through Tippecanoe. And that’s saying something with the kids that have come through here.”
Buccs ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 get over this,” Denlinger said. What makes it even tougher is the untimely loss of Donny Yingst earlier in the week. Most of the girls had him as a coach at one time or another and even wrote a message dedicated to Donny inside their hats that read, “Always Smile” — D.Y. Now they will be faced with saying their goodbyes over the next few days. “I’m sure it was on their minds, but they didn’t show it,” Denlinger said of the loss of Donny Yingst. “The girls were pretty focused, so we won’t use any excuses. I know a lot of them were close to him, so it’s going to be tough when they get home.” What’s also going to be tough to deal with was the mistakes that resulted in three unearned runs for Vienna Mathews. “We gave them three runs on mistakes,” Denlinger said. “Two of those were on a throw to first that went into right field. We should have been out of the inning without them scoring.” Two more throws went into center field — one that resulted in a run as Vienna Mathews was able to take advantage of the mistakes. Still, Covington had its chances throughout the contest, but couldn’t get the big hit when it had runners in scoring position. First, Covington left runners stranded at second and third in both the first and second innings and then left another runner stranded in the third. “We left five runners stranded in the first three innings, and a baserunning mistake cost us at least one, maybe two runs,” Denlinger said. “We left runners stranded at second and third three times today.” Vienna Mathews managed to get the big hit with runners on as it scored a run in the third and two more in the fifth on the throwing error by Covington. The Buccs finally broke through in the bottom of the fifth on an RBI single by Heidi Snipes that

But Vienna Mathews responded in the top of the seventh by plating two runs, one after Covington had overthrown the ball at second base. “We had a few breakdowns, and at this stage you can’t afford to have them,” Denlinger said. “Those are plays we have made all year.” Still, Covington showed its competitive heart in its final at-bat as Haley Adams singled with one out to score Shaina Grilliot and Cassidy Cain. But with two runners on base, Covington couldn’t get the game-tying hit it needed as the final two batters popped out to short and second to end the game. “We had some huge opportunities that we didn’t take advantage of,” Denlinger said. “Things we have done all year we didn’t do today, and that’s disappointing.” Casey Yingst went the distance on he mound for Covington and struck out ten batters without allowing a single walk. “Casey threw a pretty solid game,” Denlinger said. “She pitched well enough for us to win. We just made one two many mistakes that cost us.” Covington ends its sea-

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 to victory. Their sing-song choruses of “Po-lo! Po-lo!” the French equivalent of “Paulie” and roars of approval rang out after pretty much every point he won down the stretch. “I dug deep,” said the 30year-old Mathieu, who hadn’t played in a major tournament since the 2010 U.S. Open because of a left knee injury that forced him off tour all of last year. “I was away from the courts for quite a while, and I came back to live moments like this.” He helped provide easily the most intrigue on a day that featured straightset wins for defending champions Rafael Nadal and Li Na. But it also ended after 9 p.m., forcing organizers to postpone until Friday the match involving Maria Sharapova that was supposed to follow on Court Philippe Chatrier. About 10 hours earlier in that stadium, it appeared a man seeded even higher than Isner would be on his way out of the tournament: No. 4 Andy Murray’s back was so painful he could barely move, let alone play tennis at the level required to win a Grand Slam match. Or so it seemed. For the better part of an hour, the three-time major finalist looked downright miserable. He grimaced. He clutched at the small of his back. He contorted his body. He stepped gingerly, as though barefoot on a hot day at the beach. He tapped in serves at speeds so slow they’d be OK while driving on a highway. He considered quitting. “Just kind of gritting my teeth,” Murray said, “and (trying) to find a way of
turning the match around, because I was a few points, probably, from stopping.” And then, thanks in large part to a couple of massages from a trainer, Murray began to feel better. It helped, too, that his opponent, 48th-ranked Jarkko Nieminen of Finland, was incapable of advantage of taking Murray’s nearly incapacitated state. So Murray managed to come back to win 1-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 and reach the third round at Roland Garros for the fifth consecutive year. What’s unclear, even to Murray, is how his back will be for his next match. “I have no idea what will happen in two days,” said Murray, a semifinalist at each of the last five Grand Slam tournaments. “But if it’s something like a spasm, it’s not like you’re doing major damage. You know, it’s just a really, really tight muscle.” The 25-year-old from Scotland, being coached this season by eight-time major champion Ivan Lendl, had been dealing with a bad back for months. It forced him to pull out of the Madrid Open in early May. But Murray insisted that Thursday’s problem was different although might have been related, because he might have bothered a muscle by compensating for the earlier injury. “It was his fault for letting me back into the match, because I didn’t do anything special,” Murray said. “I just tried to put some balls back in.” Nieminen agreed, saying: “I feel like I had him. … It’s not often that somebody looks that bad and can keep going.”

Triple Crown threat narrowly avoids freak incident NEW YORK (AP) — The Triple Crown bid of I’ll Have Another almost ended Thursday when a loose horse came within inches of slamming into the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner during training at Belmont Park. A collision was avoided, but not before the speeding horse grazed the boot of I’ll Have Another’s exercise rider Jonny Garcia. “I’ve seen accidents like that happen, and they are ugly,” trainer Doug O’Neill said. Hours after the near miss at Belmont Park, the New York Racing Association announced there would be a 15-minute training window for Belmont runners only, beginning Friday morning.
Trainers have the option of working their Belmont contenders from 8:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m., or during regular training at earlier or later times. O’Neill and his brother, Dennis, were terrified by what was unfolding 10 days before I’ll Have Another attempts to become the first Triple Crown winner in 34 years, since Affirmed swept the Derby, Preakness and Belmont in 1978. After I’ll Have Another began walking on the track, a horse had dumped its rider and came “screaming up the outside rail” in the same direction along the clubhouse turn, Doug O’Neill said. I’ll Have Another was walking a few feet from the rail, with stable pony, Lava
Man, on the inside. O’Neill said the horse, later identified as the 3-year-old maiden filly Isleta, ran between the rail and I’ll Have Another “Normally they walk the outside rail, but the racing gods must have been looking out for him because he was about two feet off the rail this morning,” O’Neill said. “It could have been terrible,” said Dennis O’Neill, Doug’s brother who bought I’ll Have Another for $35,000 for owner Paul Reddam. An hour after the nearmiss, Doug O’Neill said his “stomach is still a little twisted by it. Fortunately, everything worked out fine.” I’ll Have Another was never touched, and then

ing out even quicker. He seems like he loves it here, and he’s really getting used to the oval and getting used to the footing, and I couldn’t be happier with the way he’s going.” On Wednesday, the New York State Racing and Wagering Board imposed strict new rules for horses running in the Belmont. They include a stakes barn for all Belmont runners, out-of-competition blood testing and close scrutiny of the horses and humans attending them in the days leading up to the race. “I have no problem with a detention barn. I wish we could go over there today,” O’Neill said, adding he doesn’t understand why the barn won’t be ready until Wednesday.
