Who really is listening? Monumental phone-records monitoring is laid bare
Fire crews race to douse N.M. wildfires
WASHINGTON (AP) A leaked document has laid bare the monumental scope of the government’s surveillance of Americans’ phone records hundreds of millions of calls in the first hard evidence of a massive data collection program aimed at combating terrorism under powers granted by Congress after the 9/11 attacks. At issue is a court order, first
disclosed Wednesday by The Guardian newspaper in Britain, that requires the communications company Verizon to turn over on an “ongoing, daily basis” the records of all landline and mobile telephone calls of its customers, both within the U.S. and between the U.S. and other countries. Intelligence experts said the government, though not listening
in on calls, would be looking for patterns that could lead to terrorists and that there was every reason to believe similar orders were in place for other phone companies. Some critics in Congress, as well as civil liberties advocates, declared that the sweeping nature of the National Security Agency program represented an unwar-
ranted intrusion into Americans’ private lives. But a number of lawmakers, including some Republicans who normally jump at the chance to criticize the Obama administration, lauded the program’s effectiveness. Leaders of the House Intelligence Committee said the program had helped thwart at least one attempted terrorist attack in the United States,
With changes in the weather fast approaching, firefighters were racing Thursday to build bigger buffers around a pair of wildfires that have charred 34 square miles of tinder-dry forest in northern New Mexico. Forecasters are predicting hot, dry and windy weather to move into New Mexico by the end of the week. The conditions are expected to last a few days, meaning fire behavior will be intense.

Oliver to fill in on ‘Daily Show’ Since 2006, John Oliver has proved his mettle as a phony journalist on “The Daily Show.” Serving in numerous “reporting” roles on the spoof newscast, but chiefly as senior British correspondent, the Birmingham, England-born Oliver is schoolboyish, pokerfaced and emphatic in explaining America to itself, satisfied that his accent from across the pond makes anything he says, however off-kilter, sound authoritative here in the New World.

Teen Leadership Troy takes to the streets Summer program teaches students about their city BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
Hunting down famous names in graveyards, sprinting through the city streets, putting out fires and scaling city fire escapes sounds more like the work of a comic strip heroes, but it was all in a day’s work for a group of Troy teens. On Wednesday, Teen Leadership Troy ended up their eventful day learning about Troy’s civic history with its “Amazing Race” around town.
The “Amazing Race” sent the teenagers all over the city of Troy in search of Benjamin Overfield’s grave at Rose Hill Cemetery, making primitive fires at the Overfield Tavern (with help from local historian Terry Purke) and snapping pictures of various Sculptures on the Square with their iPhones Wednesday afternoon. For 17 year-old Brittney Sowers, the Teen Leadership Troy program was an opportunity to get a closer look at the city’s landscape.
“The Masonic Temple was pretty cool looking, especially the blue room,” Sowers said. “I didn’t even know that was all there.” Sowers said she took advantage of the Teen Leadership Troy program to learn more about the Troy community and was surprised how much she didn’t know about the town she calls home. Teen Leadership Troy is a weeklong program for the city of Troy’s incoming seniors. It focuses on civic practices at city hall, a visit to the Miami County Courthouse and the courtroom, Project G.I.F.T at the Troy Foundation and several site visits to local companies including, Thursday’s tour of UTC Aerospace. “It was cooler than I thought,”
Troy Police Department detectives have released the name a Troy man they believed purposely set fire to an apartment building located on Foss Way on May 22. After an investig a t i o n with Troy F i r e Department, the state fire m a r s h a l s LEGRANT and witnesses, Troy Police Department Detective Alex Hillman said police are looking for Michael Legrant, 25, of Troy. Officials believe Legrant is responsible for allegedly setting the fire, which caused three people to jump from a second story window and four others to be rescued by fire officials at the apartment located on Foss Way on May 22. Damage estimates from the fire were estimated at $250,00 for the building and $60,000 for its contents at the time of the initial investigation. The three people who jumped were hospitalized with numerous injuries — two were later transported to Miami Valley Hospital. Hillman said the fire was deliberately set and directed toward one resident of the apartment. An initial 24 hour search for Legrant was unsuccessful, Hillman said, and now Legrant has a warrant out for his arrest in connection to the Foss

on a daily basis. “I never knew that much about our city hall,” she said. “I liked seeing how it all works, you know, the whole system.” Alex Prouty said he liked exploring parts of city like the court system, as well. “If you aren’t interacting with the court system every day, you kind of forget that they are there,” Prouty said. “It was neat to see how government works and how it all comes together.” For Maggie McClurg, awarding a portion of $5,000 to organizations through Project G.I.F.T (Grants investing in the future) was a lot harder than she initially thought. “It was hard making decisions about who got what and how much,” she said. “We got in to heated arguments as everybody was making a case for their organiza-
tions that they liked. It was hard because there wasn’t enough to give something to everybody.” While giving away money wasn’t as easy as she thought, McClurg said she is looking forward to passing out the funds to the organizations today at the Troy Foundation. For Melissa deGroat, she too enjoyed the Project G.I.F.T exercise, as well as learning more about the Miami County Park District. “Once you look deeper at places like Miami County Park District, you realize what all they offer to the community,” she said. “I’m very appreciative what all these organization do now.” Teen Leadership Troy started in 1997 and the week long program offers local high school juniors experiences with city government, Troy history, leadership
development, local industry, court system, community service and social services. Each year, city of Troy high school juniors are encouraged to apply to be part of the Teen Leadership Troy program.

she said. More than 30 vendors will be set up on the grounds, including Lisa’s Perennials, Shining Tree Farm Antiques, Virgil’s Fine Soaps and Just Jill jewelry by Jill Huelskamp. The show has a defining element, though, DeCurtins reasons. “The flowers are the cohesive thing — I have them all over the yard, and they keep your eye moving,” she said. As in previous years, daughter DeCurtin’s Abbey will be preparing food, including chicken salad and pulled pork sandwiches. DeCurtins said people contact her throughout
the year requesting information on becoming a vendor. In the past, individuals have driven hours to attend, from as far away as Chicago and Indianapolis. Local nonprofits participating include Hospice of Miami County’s gift shop and the West Central Ohio Bee Keepers Association. Admission is $5, which DeCurtins said individuals should find reasonable given the immense selection available. At a past show, a man rebuffed at the cost initially but in the end loaded the entire back of his truck with plants and other items, she added. For more information, call 335-1904.

It was not clear whether the program, called PRISM, targets known suspects or broadly collects data from other Americans. The companies include Microsoft , Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube and Apple. The Post said
PalTalk has had numerous posts about the Arab Spring and the Syrian civil war. It also said Dropbox would soon be included. Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Microsoft and Apple said in statements that they do not provide the government with direct access to their records. “When Facebook is asked for data or information about specific individuals, we carefully scrutinize any such request for compliance with all applicable laws, and provide information only to the extent required by law,” the company said. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said of the phone-records collecting: “When law-abiding Americans make phone calls, who they call, when they call and where they call is private information.”

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Omaha-World Herald on sexual assaults in the military: If there is anyone at the Pentagon or in Congress who didn’t see sexual assaults in the military as an urgent problem, the past few days should make things crystal clear. The commander in chief told graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy that such crimes “threaten the trust and discipline that make our military strong.” The secretary of defense told graduates of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point that “sexual harassment and sexual assault in the military are a profound betrayal — a profound betrayal — of sacred oaths and sacred trusts.” The speaker of the U.S. House called the situation a “national disgrace.” The military and Congress need to act — and quickly — to protect every service member from those in the ranks who would prey upon them. Regrettably, the problem isn’t new. In 1991, a Navy lieutenant named Paula Coughlin said she was sexually assaulted at the As I annual Tailhook convention for naval aviators.

With his success in ridding the world of Osama bin Laden, President Barack Obama has a commendable record in providing the leadership needed to combat global terrorism. Despite his desire to shut down Guantanamo Bay, he has kept intact the tough, post-9/11 security framework established by George W. Bush, even though, before he was elected, he was scathing about it. In some respects he has expanded it by making far greater use of unmanned drones, which have proved invaluable in attacking terrorist targets. In a widely anticipated speech .. Obama has, however, reflected profound ambivalence about the conduct and goals of the so-called “war on terror”. He has sought to radically redefine it in a way that has evoked criticism from his political opponents But what is not in doubt is that in his eagerness to declare an end to the war on terror and redefine it as a series of smaller-scale skirmishes, as well as his proposal for limits on powers to conduct that war, he has signaled a return to the pre-9/11 mindset. Displaying the intellectual preoccupations of the law professor he was rather than the commander-in-chief he is, Obama worries the U.S. may be locked in “a perpetual war” and “more wars we don’t need to fight”. Obama is making brave assumptions. Who after last week’s London slaughter and the Boston bombings, as well as al-Qa’ida’s unrelenting action across North Africa and the Middle East, can seriously maintain the war is all but won? Obama’s assumptions are highly contestable, if not fanciful. The terrorist threat is far from over. Obama may be weary of war, but the trouble is that al-Qa’ida and its cohorts are not. This is no time to be dropping our guard or degrading our defenses.

I’m not kidding around when it comes to 4-H The more things stay the same, the more things change — and we learn how to deal with it. My twin sister and her family came down for a visit on the farm over Strawberry Festival weekend. Evan was excited to show off his newly acquired 4-H lambs to his city cousins one evening. I enjoyed sharing with my sister how much 4-H has changed since we were in it, only 13 years ago. Now there are DNA tests — for the animals, not the kids, I mean, the 4-H members. You have to keep it very specific when mixing animals and children in these circles. Seriously, hair samples now are being collected for the DNA of market animals, such as Evan’s two 4-H market lambs. I wonder what it would be like if there was a Maury Show on Animal Planet. Can you imagine if animals had their own DNA test results and lie detector tests read on live TV? In the lamb world, I’m sure the audience would ring their cow bells after DNA results have been read by a distin-

Look at those horns! My whole herd has black feet. That kid ain’t mine!” bleats one angry accused Billy Goat to a confused, crying Nanny. I love trash TV, can you tell? So after sharing all the bylaws and policy changes of 4H, Evan took his aunt and his cousins on a barn tour. The first thing my twin sister noticed was the shiny silver apparatus bolted to the wall.

"What in the heck is that?" Megan said with a laugh. My dad played the “Grandpa Card” and installed an automatic watering system for the lambs. And when I say “for the lambs,” I mean “for Evan.” The day my dad brought it up, I glared at him as he sat at the kitchen table when he casually mentioned getting the device. "Um Dad?” I said. “We didn't have an automatic watering system. We had buckets. The water pump was 2 miles away. The lambs lived. We lived." I thought that would have been the end of the discussion. I obviously thought wrong. OK, so when we were growing up, the water pump wasn't 2 miles away. It just seemed like it. But let the record show I was against this luxury from the getgo (I use the term “luxury” very loosely around here). But the Grandpa Card trumps me every time and so I helped hand him the parts as he bolted it against the wall of the barn one spring day. As Megan leaned on the brand
new gate and looked in the pen, snapping pictures of the lambs to send to her city friends, she commented on the elaborate setup these sheep had compared to ours as kids (I use the term “elaborate” very loosely around here). By that time, my city slicker nephews finally got a whiff of the barnyard smells that tend to waft through the air. "Ew. It smells like garbage," Tyler said. "Ew. It smells like, well, you know," Michael said. While this didn't surprise me, Evan overheard their comments through their plugged noses and took offense. "Hey guys! Deal with it!" he yelled as he carried a fist full of hay to his lambs. All in all, every day has been a learning experience so far this summer here at home. As for all the changes, well, we’ll just have to deal with it. Have a great week! “Twin” Melanie Yingst appears on Fridays in the Troy Daily News.

Swimmer and movie star Esther Williams dies at 91 LOS ANGELES (AP) — As a teenager, Esther Williams dreamed of Olympic glory on the U.S. swim team. She had to settle instead for becoming a movie star. The self-described “Million Dollar Mermaid,” whose wholesome beauty, shapely figure and aquatic skills launched an entire genre of movies the Technicolor “aqua musicals” died Thursday at 91. She was remembered for her Hollywood fame but also her influence on fashion and on synchronized swimming, the Olympic sport inspired by her cinematic water ballet. Williams followed in the footsteps of Sonja Henie who went from skating champion to movie star and became one of Hollywood’s biggest moneymakers after she lost the chance to compete in the Olympics when they were canceled due to the onset of World War II. She appeared in glittering swimsuit numbers that featured towering fountains, waterfalls, pools, lakes, slides, water skis and anything else that involved water. “The girl you will dream about!” raved the 1944 trailer for “Bathing Beauty,” the AP first big aqua musical.

DEATHS OF NATIONAL INTEREST • William T. Cartwright LOS ANGELES (AP) — William T. Cartwright, an Emmy-winning filmmaker who helped save the landmark Watts Towers in Los Angeles, has died at age 92. The Los Angeles Times says Cartwright died Saturday at an LA hospice. His son, William Jr., says the cause was mainly old age. The soaring mosaicencrusted towers were created by Simon Rodia over several decades but had been neglected and faced demolition when Cartwright first saw them in 1959. He and Nicholas King bought the property for $3,000 and formed a nonprofit group to fight City Hall and preserve them. The towers are now considered a masterpiece of folk art. Cartwright won or shared three Emmys for editing or producing documentaries, including two about the 1960 and 1964 presidential campaigns. • Tom Sharpe LONDON — British novelist Tom Sharpe, who satirized everything from apartheid to academe in a series of best-sellers, has died at 85. Sharpe’s Spanish publisher, Anagrama, said he died early Thursday in the Catalan town where he lived. Spanish newspapers said he had been suffering from diabetes. Born in 1928, Sharpe sharpened his satirical ax as a young man working in South Africa. He was deported in 1961 for criticizing the apartheid regime. His first novel, the South Africa-set “Riotous Assembly,” was published in 1971. He became one of Britain’s most popular comic novelists with “Blott on the Landscape,” the “Wilt” series about a long-
suffering college lecturer, and “Porterhouse Blue,” set in a fictitious Cambridge University college. Susan Sandon, Sharpe’s editor at Random House, said he was “witty, often outrageous, always acutely funny about the absurdities of life.” She called him “one of our greatest satirists and a brilliant writer.” Many of his works were adapted for TV. Sharpe moved from England to Spain in the early 1990s, where he became something of a local celebrity. Sharpe studied at Lancing College and Pembroke College in Cambridge before serving in the Marines.
• Joey Covington PALM SPRINGS, Calif. — Former Jefferson Airplane drummer Joey Covington has died in a Palm Springs car crash. A Riverside County coroner’s report says the 67-year-old Palm Springs resident wasn’t wearing a seat belt when his car hit a retaining wall at about 5 p.m. Tuesday. He died at the scene. The Palm Springs Desert Sun says police don’t believe alcohol or drugs were involved. A friend, Keith McCormick, tells the paper that Covington’s wife, Lauren, suspects he had a stroke or heart attack before the accident. Covington replaced Spencer Dryden as the Airplane’s drummer from 1970-72. Before that, he was with the Airplane offshoot Hot Tuna and played congas on the 1969 Airplane album “Volunteers.” Covington co-wrote several Airplane songs, including “Pretty as You Feel” and the 1976 tune “With Your Love.”
Service held for father, son storm chasers LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) — A woman who lost her husband and son to a powerful tornado in Oklahoma said Thursday the two storm chasers will leave a legacy. Cathy Samaras spoke at a memorial service for Tim Samaras, 54, and his son, Paul, 24, in the Denver suburb of Littleton. They were killed on May 31 when a powerful tornado near El Reno, Okla., turned on them as they were conducting research. Colleague Carl Young, 45, also was killed. Samaras told mourners her husband was her best friend, KMGHTV in Denver reported. “I felt like Cinderella for the 31 years I was married to him,” she said. “Tim lived a fairytale life to be able to storm chase. Tim and Paul are going to leave a legacy. Good things are going to come from this.” Tim Samaras lived in Bennett and was one of the stars of the
Discovery Channel’s “Storm Chasers.” Paul worked with his father as a videographer. Paul Samaras’ sisters called him selfless and noted how their father had served as a Girl Scout leader. The elder Samaras had been fascinated with tornados since watching “The Wizard of Oz” as a child. His colleagues knew him to be a careful planner, spending hours developing safe escape routes and rendezvous points before chasing a tornado. “We chase because it’s important to better understand these storms,” KMGH-TV meteorologist Mike Nelson said at the memorial service. “The data is crucial to issue faster and more accurate warnings. We know because seconds save lives.” Nelson said he would like to think “Tim, Paul and Carl now have the very best vantage point possible to watch the storms.”

AP MOVIE REVIEWS • “Fast & Furious 6” — Clearly, nobody ever told the makers of the “Fast & Furious” franchise that less is more. More is ALWAYS more and so regular fans will be delighted with this latest installment, which again ups the ante with the cars, the crazy stunts, the crashes and the fights. Vin Diesel’s Dom, now wealthy and living the good life, is lured back into action by his erstwhile nemesis, the federal agent Hobbs (the absurdly buff Dwayne Johnson). It seems a villain named Shaw has amassed a huge military arsenal including a big tank and a cargo jet and is one component short of wreaking total havoc. Even more important for Dom, he has Letty working for him she’s Dom’s former paramour, and seems to be suffering from amnesia. A welcome indeed, crucial element of all this is the film’s sense of humor. Especially funny are Tyrese Gibson as Roman and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges as Tej, Dom’s partners in crime. Not everyone gets out alive. As for the lucrative franchise, though, it’s clearly alive and kicking; there’s even a post-credits teaser here for the seventh film. PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action and mayhem throughout, some sexuality and language. 130 minutes. Two stars out of four. • “Much Ado About Nothing” — Joss Whedon’s bare-bones contemporary adaptation is the cinematic equivalent of Shakespeare in the parking lot and proof, again, that it doesn’t take much doing to bring Shakespeare to life. Whedon shot his “Much Ado” at his Los Angeles home over just 12 days immediately after production for a slightly larger film he directed: “The Avengers.” It’s almost surely the only time the Bard has been performed with a suburban golf course in the background. The verbal duel of “Much Ado” pits the proud bachelor Benedick (Alexis Denisof) against the quicktongued Beatrice (Amy Acker), as they sling clever putdowns back and forth, even as they’re drawn together by their scheming friends. Most of the cast (including, memorably, Nathan Fillion as the bumbling Constable Dogberry and Clark Gregg as the governor Leonato) are long-time Whedonites, veterans from his TV shows (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) and films. One would expect Whedon, given his knack for wordplay, to highlight the verbal joisting and really chew the play’s choice lines. But much of the acting doesn’t make the language pop (Denisof is particularly without snap) and the wan blackand-white photography bleaches the play of its snappiness. Acker gives a likable and lithe performance, even if its lacks the commanding presence Beatrice deserves. More effort, it feels, went into making the play feel natural than making it sing. This “Much Ado” (for which Whedon also composed the music) is best considered a charming dress rehearsal. PG-13 for some sexuality and brief drug use. 109 minutes. Two and half stars out of four. • “The Hangover Part III” — “Daring” isn’t a word you would use very much to describe 2011’s “The Hangover Part II,” the disappointingly lazy, beat-for-beat rehash of the wild and wildly successful original “Hangover” from 2009. And yet, here we are with part three, which runs a different sort of risk by going to darker and more dangerous places than its predecessors. It dares to alienate the very audience that made “The Hangover” the highest-grossing Rrated comedy of all time because, well, it isn’t exactly a comedy. Sure, there are some outrageous lines and sight gags, mostly courtesy of Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong, who function as central figures this time when, previously, a little bit of them went a long way. But director and co-writer Todd Phillips signals early and often that he’s much more interested than ever before in exploring matters of real consequence rather than simply mining them for brash laughs. This time, Galifianakis’ insufferable, inappropriate man-child Alan has gone off his meds and is out of control. His family and friends including fellow “Wolfpack” members Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) stage an intervention and offer to drive him to a treatment center in Arizona. Clearly, this won’t be an innocuous trek through the desert. R for pervasive language including sexual references, some violence and drug content, and brief graphic nudity. 100 minutes. Three stars out of four. • “The Internship” — There are really three movie stars headlining this movie: Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, and Google. Actually, it’s a surprise Google doesn’t get top billing over the humans, so adoringly is the company displayed. But if you can get past this Mother of All Product Placements, you’ll likely find yourself chuckling a lot during Shawn Levy’s silly but warmhearted film, with a script by Vaughn and Jared Stern. Sure, it could be shorter, less predictable, more believable. But this is Vaughn and Wilson, and if their onscreen banter doesn’t quite live up to the 2005 “Wedding Crashers,” it’s still pretty darned funny. Billy (Vaughn) and Nick (Wilson), watch salesmen, lose their jobs, and implausibly apply for an unpaid internship at Google. Which they implausibly get. (Their job interview, via video chat, is one of the funniest scenes.) A stern supervisor (the terrific Aasif Mandvi) describes the “Hunger Games”-like contest ahead, with only the winning intern team attaining Google employment. (Perhaps because Google helped out with the film, it is never once questioned that this is the ultimate place to work from the free food to the nap pods to the adultsized slides.) Generation gap jokes abound. Vaughn’s Billy keeps saying “on the line” instead of “online” really, if he knew enough about Google to apply there, wouldn’t he know the term “online”? Still, it’s amusing. Will Billy and Nick survive their trial-by-technology? Do we really need to ask? PG-13 for sexuality, some crude humor, partying and language. 119 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four. • “Stories We Tell” — A documentary about Sarah Polley’s family: her father and mother, sister and brother, and the sister and brother she has from her mother’s first marriage. It’s about moments they’ve shared that are seemingly prosaic and universally relatable, as well as the betrayals and losses that shaped and strengthened them. But while it’s incredibly specific in its detail and makes you feel as if you’ve known these people forever after spending less than two hours with them, “Stories We Tell” is also about every family. It reveals that we’re all unreliable narrators of our own histories, especially after years and even decades have gone by. And it reminds us that the truth is a fleeting thing, constantly changing in the slightest of ways depending on who’s telling it. Polley, the Toronto-based actress-turned-filmmaker, has shown astonishing emotional depth and technical maturity at a young age in just two previous features: “Away From Her” and “Take This Waltz.” Like those earlier films, “Stories We Tell” focuses on how a long-term relationship evolves over time. Now 34 and tackling a subject that’s so close to her heart, she reveals a whole new level of artistic mastery. Her meta-, multilayered exploration of her own past combines interviews, archival footage and meticulous reenactments so seamlessly, it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s mythologized. And that’s the point. PG-13 for thematic elements involving sexuality, brief strong language and smoking. 108 minutes. Three and a half stars out of four.

Oliver to fill in on ‘Daily Show’ NEW YORK (AP) — Since 2006, John Oliver has proved his mettle as a phony journalist on “The Daily Show.” Serving in numerous “reporting” roles on the spoof newscast, but chiefly as senior British correspondent, the Birmingham, England-born Oliver is schoolboyish, poker-faced and emphatic in explaining America to itself (whether the topic is Occupy Wall Street, gun control or the N-word), satisfied that his accent from across the pond makes anything he says, however off-kilter, sound authoritative here in the New World. Recently Oliver said a simple “yes” to his boss, Jon Stewart, who means to take the summer off to make a feature film and asked Oliver to fill in for him at the “Daily Show” anchor desk. “I’ll say ‘yes’ to anything
he wants me to do,” Oliver explains at the “Daily Show” offices in midtown Manhattan. “I owe him so much he brought me over here (to the U.S.) seven years ago so I’ll do anything he wants, whether it’s hosting his show or operating as a drug mule between here and Bogota. “As it happens,” adds Oliver, looking relieved, “what he wanted was just hosting this show.” In the coming months, Stewart will be directing and producing “Rosewater” from his own script based on a book by Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari, who was falsely accused of being a spy and imprisoned by the Iranian government in 2009 while covering Iran’s presidential election. And starting Monday, Oliver will preside on “The Daily Show” (which airs at 11 p.m. EDT Mondays
through Thursdays on Comedy Central). He will substitute-anchor for eight weeks of new shows before Stewart’s return on Sept. 3. “He’s got all the talents and he’s gonna be great,” declared Stewart in a separate interview. “And he can handle the speed of it. You want somebody in that position for everybody else on the staff, so they don’t feel they have to slow down.” But Oliver has his own assessment of the challenge that awaits him: “You’re taking this engine and hoping you can operate it with a lower skill set than the guy who designed it.” In person, Oliver is as witty as he is on camera, but unlike his deadpan TV alter ego, he exhibits a toothy grin, a generous guffaw and a palpable delight in mining ideas for humor. He jokes that he is try-
ing to get a head start on his new responsibilities by writing scripts ahead of time. “I’m going to try and get to August, at least, by just predicting: We’ll get a Supreme Court decision on gay marriage; we’ll guess what that’s going to be. We’ve got a royal baby coming; we’ll guess what that’s going to be.” Oliver, 36, says his comic style was forged by early exposure to Monty Python and Armando Iannucci, a Scottish farceur who produced radio comedies, the British political TV satire “The Thick of It” and, currently, HBO’s “Veep” (and will be a “Daily Show” guest next week). Seeking his own comic style, Oliver wanted to apply “classic British comedic lunacy to politics, trying to do something stupid with something serious.”

Talk to a physician and your parents, too Dear Annie: I am a 16-yearold girl in high school. I have so much to be thankful for, but recently, I have been feeling like something is wrong with me. Quite frankly, I am depressed. I am always tired, anxious and nervous, and I have outrageous mood swings. I have lost all focus, ambition and motivation, and sometimes it just hurts to breathe. I hate to use this as an excuse for my grades, but I had been a straight-A student, and now I have two C's and a B. This is unacceptable. I hate disappointing my parents. Along with the grades and the other symptoms I mentioned, I am constantly having trouble eating and recently resorted to selfharm. Suicidal thoughts also accompany this, as much as I hate to admit it. I worry that if I tell my parents, they will hate me. I don't have a teacher or counselor I feel comfortable confiding in. None of my friends know, and I am scared that I will do more damage to myself than I intend. Please help me. I hide behind a smile every day, and I am so lost. â€” Depressed in Hiding Dear Depressed: Please tell your parents you aren't feeling well and ask them to make an appointment for you to see your doctor. A lot of what you are describing may have physiological origins that can be treated (such as a hormonal imbalance). You can speak to the doctor privately and tell him what you told us. But please don't be afraid to discuss this with your parents. They love and care about you. They may be worried, but they will want to help, and you will feel better confiding in them. Dear Annie: My cousin is getting married in another state. I have four other relatives in my city, and we are planning to go together, even though we've seen this cousin only a few times in our lives. The wedding is on a Sunday evening, and we'd arrive on Saturday afternoon. If there is a rehearsal dinner on Saturday night, should we be included as out-of-town relatives? We're already spending a great deal of money on airfare and hotel rooms. What do you say? â€” Dinner Guest or No? Dear Dinner Guest: The rehearsal dinner is specifically for the bridal party, immediate family and the officiant. If the hosts can afford to include out-of-state guests (related or not), it is both gracious and appreciated. However, if there are many such guests, it can be beyond the means of the hosts to include them in the rehearsal dinner. It is appropriate, however, for them to provide some welcoming snack or hospitality for all out-of-towners upon their arrival, since such guests are unfamiliar with nearby restaurants and might be arriving too late to eat at the hotel coffee shop. Dear Annie: I was moved to write after reading the letter from "California," the man who felt so guilty about a brief extramarital affair he had 40 years ago that he wanted to confess it to his children. My parents divorced in 1968, when I was 13. I would respect my father more if he would acknowledge that his affairs were a significant reason for the divorce. Our mother told us, but didn't use it as part of the divorce proceedings. I think she thought it was too embarrassing. Dad married his girlfriend six months later. Last summer, my 87-year-old father had the nerve to tell me that my mother was the one who wanted the divorce and he didn't know why. While you may think it would do more harm than good, I'd rather my father tell us than keep lying. â€” S. Dear S.: Your father had a long-term affair that resulted in a divorce. It is not the same as a brief indiscretion that was deeply regretted. And while Dad should not lie or blame your mother, it's possible that, at the age of 87, he no longer clearly remembers the reason behind the divorce.

Look at the address label on your subscription â€” there may be a small date or code. This will tell you when your subscription actually expires. â€˘ Keep a list or spreadsheet if you have several
Hints from Heloise Columnist subscriptions. Write down the dates you renewed, what price and when they expire. â€˘ Always look at your notices. Some companies will automatically renew the subscription if they donâ€™t hear from you. So always check. â€” Heloise
TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: To ease airport X-ray lines, I put my keys and change into my shoe. This makes it so easy to retrieve (just pour it out into your hand) rather than attempt to pick it all up from the plastic tray. â€” Patrick in Maui, Hawaii Aloha to my friends in Hawaii, and Patrick, your travel hint is a good one for all road warriors. â€” Heloise SELF-GRIPPING TAPE Dear Heloise: How do I remove lint from very heavy
self-gripping tape? â€” Annie in Grafton, Wis. Donâ€™t you just get bugged by the sticky (or nonsticky, really) problem? When it happens, the tape stops sticking together! Pull out as much of the larger pieces as you can. Then take a crochet hook, a stiff toothbrush or a small comb and gently clean out the debris. Depending on what the tape is on, press the two sides together when not in use to keep them from getting full of lint. â€” Heloise

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Saturday, June 8, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is the best day of the year to think about how clear you are in your communication with others. Do you listen to others, and vice versa? TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The New Moon makes today the day to make resolutions about how to improve your money scene. What can you do to earn more? What can you do to save more? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The only New Moon in your sign all year is taking place today. Take a realistic look in the mirror to discover what you can do to improve your appearance. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It's important to be aware of your beliefs. What gives you guidelines? What do you do to balance the busyness of your days? LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Friendships are important. Studies indicate that friends even improve our health. What kind of friend are you to your friends? Think about this. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) What is your relationship to authority figures? Do you resent authority? Do you accept it? The New Moon today urges you to think about this. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) What further education can you get to improve your job or enhance the quality of your life? Think about taking a course or traveling to expand your horizons. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This might be the best day of the year to think about how to reduce your debt. You also might ponder how to redefine the boundaries of shared property. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Today is the only New Moon all year that is opposite your sign. This means it's your chance to make resolutions about how to improve your partnerships and close friendships. Any ideas?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Our society places much emphasis on work and the success of earning money. But this is no guarantee of happiness. How well do you balance your work with fun and play? PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is an excellent day to think about how to improve your family relationships and also how to improve your home. When things are solid at home, your world feels better. YOU BORN TODAY You understand form and structure and have a very organized mind. You're careful, and you always consider the ramifications of whatever you do. Many of you easily learn technology. You're outspoken and frank, which endears you to some, but appalls others. Personally, you are courageous. In the year ahead, partnerships and your closest friendships will be your main focus.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) â€” Today is Friday, June 7, the 158th day of 2013. There are 207 days left in the year. Todayâ€™s Highlights in History: On June 7, 1776, Richard Henry Lee of Virginia proposed to the Continental Congress a resolution stating â€œThat these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown.â€? On this date: â€˘ In 1769, frontiersman Daniel Boone first began to explore presentday Kentucky. â€˘ In 1892, Homer Plessy, a
â€œCreole of color,â€? was fined for refusing to leave a whites-only car of the East Louisiana Railroad. (Ruling on his case, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld â€œseparate but equalâ€? racial segregation, which it overturned in 1954.) â€˘ In 1942, the World War II Battle of Midway ended in a decisive victory for American forces over the Imperial Japanese. â€˘ In 1972, the musical â€œGreaseâ€? opened on Broadway, having already been performed in lower Manhattan. â€˘ In 1998, in a crime that shocked the nation, James Byrd Jr., a 49-year-old black man, was

In this photo provided by the U.S. Forest Service, firefighters fight the Thompson Ridge fire Thursday, near Jemez Springs in northern New Mexico, which continues to grow, though higher humidity late Wednesday and 6WDXQWRQ 7RZQVKLS %RDUG RI 7UXVWHHV early Thursday helped firefighters. More than 800 personnel are fighting the fire.
Crews race to build bigger buffers around N.M. fires Hot, dry weather on the way could complicate firefightersâ€™ efforts ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) â€” With changes in the weather fast approaching, firefighters were racing Thursday to build bigger buffers around a pair of wildfires that have charred 34 square miles of tinder-dry forest in northern New Mexico. Forecasters are predicting hot, dry and windy weather to move into New Mexico by the end of the week. The conditions are expected to last a few days, meaning fire behavior will be intense. On the Valles Caldera National Preserve, crews battling the Thompson Ridge Fire were focusing on getting ahead of the blaze to burn vegetation and other forest debris in hopes of creating a break that would serve to starve the
flames as they advance. â€œWe want to get that work done before it starts to rage again,â€? said fire information officer Peter Dâ€™Aquanni. The Thompson Ridge Fire has charred about 19 square miles north of Jemez Springs since being sparked last Friday by a downed power line. It forced the evacuation of homes in the Thompson Ridge, Rancho de la Cueva and Elk Valley areas. As of Thursday, crews had contained only 5 percent of the fire. However, Dâ€™Aquanni said firefighters were close to completing a line around the fire and they planned to spend the next two days bolstering that line. In recent days, high humidity levels and lower temperatures have
helped crews on both the Thompson Ridge Fire and the Tres Lagunas Fire, which is burning about 10 miles north of Pecos on the opposite side of the Santa Fe National Forest. Weather conditions have limited some burnout operations on the Tres Lagunas blaze, but officials said firefighters were still building lines to the northwest of Holy Ghost Canyon and around spot fires that have started along the southeastern edge of the fire. The fire was 24 percent contained Thursday. Sparked by a downed power line one week ago, the fire has burned nearly 15 square miles. Fire officials said the cost of fighting each of the fires has surpassed $2.7 million. A total of 1,747 firefighters and support personnel have been assigned to the fires along a fleet of air tankers, helicopters and engines.

Buccs’ shot at state delayed by rain Covington vs. Strasburg-Franklin to kick off a busy semifinal day Staff Reports
Top-ranked Covington’s bid for a state title will have to wait a day. Rain that delayed Thursday’s Division I state semifinal games — the first ones slated to be played that day — for more than six hours caused the Division IV semifinals to be moved to today, with the Buccaneers’ game against Strasburg-Franklin beginning the day’s action at 9 a.m. The other D-IV semifinal
between Rockford Parkway and North Robinson will be played an hour after Covington’s game, with the two D-III games and the two D-II games following. Each game will begin an hour after the previous game ends in an attempt to get the semifinal round completed and play the state championship games on Saturday as originally scheduled. Covington, at 30-0 on the season and ranked No. 1 in the
state, will play No. 3 StrasburgFranklin — the team that defeated the Buccs 2-0 two years ago in the state semifinal round, the first of Covington’s three consecutive final four appearances. In D-I, North Canton Hoover defeated Mentor 15-3 in five innings after a lengthy rain delay. Elyria led Mason 2-0 after three innings at time of press. Baseball’s state semifinal round, played at Huntington Park in Columbus, was not immune to the weather, either.

Note: Game 1 of the NBA Finals was not complete at time of press. The San Antonio Spurs led the Miami Heat 81-78 in the fourth quarter. MIAMI (AP) — David Stern thinks that when it comes to the NBA Finals, his last might be the best. Stern’s 30-year reign as NBA Commissioner will end Feb. 1, making this Miami-San Antonio series the final championship matchup of his tenure overseeing a league that has grown into a wildly successful international corporate giant under his watch. Still, there’s plenty of items remaining on Stern’s to-do list, which is one of the reasons why he hasn’t turned his final months into a victory lap of sorts. “I’ll savor it when it’s over,” Stern s a i d Thursday in his annual pre-Finals news conference. “I’ll look back on it. I STERN do know every day that I have the best job in the world … and I will remain committed to the continued success of the NBA. That’s the thing I think about more than I think about looking backwards. I’m actually looking forward to helping the NBA in any way possible as it rises to continued new heights.” His last Finals might help the league reach those heights. The Miami-San Antonio series features four former NBA Finals MVPs in Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. It will almost certainly have a tremendous international following, because James is a global marketing icon, Wade wears shoes from a Chinese company and more than half of the Spurs’ players were born outside the United States. “I would say this is probably the most anticipated Finals in, who knows, 30 years,” Stern said. “We’ve had a great run up to it.” Under Stern’s watch, the league has become a $5 billion annual industry, with the NBA Finals broadcast in 215 countries — instead of being shown on tape-delay, as was the case in the early 1980s.

Serena Williams returns the ball to Sara Errani during their semifinal match of the French Open at the Roland Garros stadium Thursday in Paris.
Been a long time Williams in first French Open final since 2002 PARIS (AP) — Done with a dominating performance in the French Open semifinals, Serena Williams climbed the stairs leading from the locker room to the players’ lounge, looking to give her mother a hug. Smiling widely all the while, Williams greeted visitors, posed for photos and signed autographs on her way. It’s been more than a decade since she was so happy — and played so well — this deep in the tournament at Roland
Garros. Coming as close to perfect as seems possible, Williams absolutely overwhelmed last year’s runner-up, fifth-seeded Sara Errani of Italy, 6-0, 6-1 in a mere 46 minutes Thursday to reach the final for the first time since winning her lone French Open championship in 2002. “It doesn’t seem like that long ago,” Williams said, “even though it was.” To collect her 16th Grand Slam title Saturday, Williams

Bengals finish OTAs with BP, bowling Annett to race on hometown track Michael Annett has always cherished racing at his home-state track. This time, Annett’s latest trip to Iowa Speedway will mark a major milestone in his comeback from a gruesome injury. See Page 16.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Ten of the Bengals piled off the bus with their green bowling pins in hand, trophies from their firstplace finish. A boys’ night out? Nope. End of their organized offseason workouts. The Bengals finished three weeks of workouts by trying their hand at some other things. They went to Great American Ball Park and took batting practice on Tuesday night before the
Reds’ 12-4 loss to the Colorado Rockies. Linebacker J.K. Schaffer and a few other players reached the stands. On the final day of OTAs on Wednesday, they loaded onto buses and headed to a bowling alley called “Super Bowl” for a different kind of team competition. The 10-member team led by a guy from the Steelers won this Super Bowl trophy. Linebacker James Harrison was so excited
that he tweeted updates and photos from the alley. “It’s a nice little release from being serious and getting at football all the time,” said Schaffer, who was on Harrison’s bowling team. “Definitely a nice getaway. It was a lot of fun, too. You get us out there in another competitive situation, but where we can also have fun.” Schaffer put his green bowling pin a trophy from the win on the top shelf of his locker, along
with the scuffed baseball he hit into the seats in left field the previous night at Great American. “It does look nice,” he said. “It’s a nice little start to a collection up there.” The ballpark and bowling ventures were the idea of coach Marvin Lewis, who returns his team virtually intact from two straight disappointing playoff

French ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 45, Sharapova with 43. And they are two of three active women with more than two major championships; Sharapova completed a career Grand Slam in Paris last year with No. 4. Plus, Williams has won a career-best 30 consecutive matches, the longest single-season streak on tour since 2000. Sharapova has won 13 consecutive matches in Paris. Despite all of that, this one doesn’t shape up as much of an even matchup, because Williams is 13-2 against Sharapova, including winning the last 12. “Well, I’d be lying if it doesn’t bother me, obviously,” said Sharapova, who last defeated Williams all
FRENCH OPEN AT A GLANCE A look at the French Open on Thursday: Weather: Sunny, with brief rain. High of 79 degrees. Women's Semifinals: No. 1 Serena Williams def. No. 5 Sara Errani 6-0, 6-1; No. 2 Maria Sharapova def. No. 3 Victoria Azarenka 6-1, 2-6, 6-4. Stat of the Day: 40-2 — Winners for Williams and Errani in their 46-minute match. Quote of the Day: "What she did today is unbelievable." — Errani. Friday's Men's Semifinals: No. 1 Novak Djokovic vs. No. 3 Rafael Nadal; No. 4 David Ferrer vs. No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Friday's Forecast: Sunny. High of 81. Saturday's Women's Final: Williams vs. Sharapova.
the way back in 2004, at Wimbledon and the WTA Championships. “Whatever I did in the past hasn’t worked, so I’ll have to try to do something different.” Williams never gave Errani a chance to switch things up. Errani, Williams’ coach Patrick Moratouglou explained, “needs to rally,
she needs to run, and then she’s really, really dangerous.” But, he continued, Williams “decided to refuse to let her play.” Simple as that. The 31-year-old American won the first nine games. When Errani finally got on the board, 37 minutes in, she raised both arms overhead as the
crowd roared. Williams accumulated a 40-2 discrepancy in winners — yes, 40-2! — showing off a full array of talents. She won 28 of 33 points she served, helped by five aces, including one at 123 mph (199 kph). She smacked 10 return winners. She mixed in overhead smashes, powerful groundstrokes, even a drop shot. “She was playing,” Williams’ mother, Oracene Price, summed up, “like Serena of old.” It felt like a routine first-round match for one of the sport’s greats against a qualifier or wild-card recipient ranked somewhere in the 200s, not someone ranked No. 5 and a semifi-
nalist at three of the past five major tournaments. Errani’s also an accomplished doubles player, having won three of the past four Grand Slam titles in that event. “I really believed I had a chance and I was trying to fight,” said Errani, now 0-6 against Williams. “Maybe on the outside, people will think that’s not true. But I know that I tried, right until the end.” Made no difference. Moratouglou thought one reason Williams was so terrific was what happened Tuesday in the quarterfinals, when she was pushed to three sets by 2009 French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova after having lost a total of 10
games through four rounds. “It was good for her to feel danger for a moment,” Moratouglou said. Sharapova certainly dealt with plenty of tension against Azarenka, the winner of the past two Australian Opens. Good as she was in the first set, Sharapova was shaky in the second, and it took her a while to straighten things out after a 35minute rain delay that preceded the third. Up an early break, Sharapova double-faulted four times in a single game to make it 2-all. Serving for the match the first time, at 5-2, she let four match points slip away, then double-faulted on the last two points.

MLB digging deeper
■ CONTINUED FROM 13 The NBA had 23 teams when Stern began; it now has 30. The Heat weren’t even an idea when Stern began his tenure, and they’re now a global brand themselves, having made the title round four times in the last eight seasons. “He saved the league,” Heat forward Shane Battier said. “People forget how drug-riddled and really on how much thin ice the league was on in the 1980s. Obviously, Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan and Larry Bird were the talents sort of behind that movement, but without David’s marketing genius the league wouldn’t be in its present form. He turned a small, professional, struggling league into a global giant. And it’s not just about basketball anymore.” Stern announced last year that he would retire and be replaced his longtime deputy, Adam Silver, who has worked with him in five different capacities over the last 22 years. Silver, in Stern’s eyes, is more than ready for the job, and the current commissioner said providing for a plan of succession was vital. “At some time an organization can use an infusion of different ideas,” Stern said. “And at the same time, along the 30 years, there are a group of colleagues that now work at the NBA who have been doing it for a while, but they’re very, very young at heart and push us and push each other. And I think it’s their turn to shine as well a little bit more. So it’s time to step down and step aside, while at the same time being willing to assist in any way I can, particularly internationally.” The global game has been of importance to Stern for years. He has often spoken of the idea of having European teams in the NBA, which many people in the league believe will eventually happen. NBA players have starred in the Olympics since 1992, the league has had over 100 games contested in international cities, and Stern will keep trying to expand the league’s reach
abroad after he retires. coach Erik Heat Spoelstra has already seen Stern’s fingerprint on the game around the world. “I’ve seen that when we go to the Philippines every summer,” said Spoelstra, who is of Filipino descent. “You go into any sports store now anywhere in the world, you see NBA paraphernalia. And just the interest worldwide, how our game has grown globally, not only international players but the interest outside. Even though I was just a kid, I remember what the NBA was like before. And it was a far cry from right now. He deserves a large part of the credit.” Stern touched on a number of other issues, including: • The league is looking into changing how it handles replay reviews in-game, including possibly having them handled off-site in a broadcast center. “We’ve got to find a way to make it a little smoother,” Stern said. • Flopping, which was a key point of emphasis for the league this year, will be discussed again at the league’s competition committee meeting in San Antonio next week. “There’s always a challenge of getting it right,” Stern said. • He called coaching changes, which have been plentiful since the regular season ended and even including the league’s reigning coach of the year in Denver’s George Karl, “a natural consequence” of a team having expectations to win immediately. But most of Stern’s final address revolved around memories, such as what the league went through in recent years with its most recent labor stoppage that led to the current collective bargaining agreement, and some of the other unforgettable moments of his tenure, like his fear for Magic Johnson when he learned that he had the HIV virus in 1991 and retired, followed by the joy of watching Johnson win the All-Star MVP award in Orlando a few months later. No regrets, Stern said.

Bengals ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 appearances. Lewis decided to end the final day of organized team activities by hitting the lanes instead of going on the football field in the rain Cincinnati is the most northern NFL team without a covered field. “Just an opportunity for guys to have a good time,” Lewis said. “I knew it was going to rain today and it was good not to get out on the field.” The last three weeks of workouts were a chance for the rookies and the few new veterans to learn the system in Cincinnati. The Bengals spent a lot of money in the offseason keeping the starting units virtually intact. The measure of this team will be whether it can get deep into the playoffs. The Bengals are 0-4 in the postseason under Lewis and haven’t won a playoff game since the 1990 season, the longest current streak of futility in the NFL. It’s tied for seventh-longest such streak in league history. “That’s the thing,” left tackle Andrew Whitworth
said. “It’s not that we went out there saying, ‘Oh, we have to be better at this, we have to be better at that.’ It’s more about we return the same guys, we need certain guys in certain places to be a little better at this or that. “But they are also a year wiser and it’s a really young football team. It’s not like a bunch of veterans that fell short or something. This is a young team that every year, every game we play we seem to make some strides at places.” The Bengals hold their mandatory minicamp next week, which will provide a better read on how some of the newcomers are catching up on things. Lewis said that right tackle Andre Smith, who missed the OTAs for a personal matter, is expected at minicamp. It’ll also be a better chance to see Harrison in action with his new team. He left Pittsburgh, where he won two Super Bowls and Defensive Player of the Year honors, when they couldn’t agree on a restructured contract.
Phone, shipping records sought in Biogenesis investigation NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball’s lawyers issued subpoenas to Federal Express, AT&T Mobility and T-Mobile USA in an attempt to gain records for its investigation of players suspected of using performanceenhancing drugs. The subpoenas were issued May 23, according to a civil case file in Florida’s Circuit Court for Miami-Dade County, where MLB sued Biogenesis of America, anti-aging clinic head Anthony Bosch and five others in March. M e a n w h i l e , Commissioner Bud Selig said MLB’s “very comprehensive” probe proves that baseball has the toughest drug policy in professional sports. MLB asked Federal Express to turn over shiprecords for ment Biogenesis, Bosch, the other defendants and a long list of individuals who appeared to be affiliated with Bosch. MLB asked the phone companies for call records, texts and subscriber info for the phones of Juan Carlos Nunez, an associate of outfielder Melky Cabrera who was banned from big league clubhouses last year, and Porter Fischer, who was affiliated with the now-closed clinic. In addition, a subpoena was issued for Biogenesis and related entities in March, seeking records involving major leaguers and 70 banned substances. No players were mentioned by name. MLB hopes Bosch will provide information implicating players in the use of banned performanceenhancing drugs, and Bosch agreed this week to cooperate. Because any discipline could be challenged by the players’ association in grievances before an arbitrator, MLB likely would want records to corroborate any testimony. There was no indication
Milwaukee Brewers’ Ryan Braun walks through the dugout during the seventh inning against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday in Milwaukee. Major League Baseball has begun interviewing players linked to a Miami anti-aging clinic that allegedly sold performance-enhancing drugs and became the focus of the sport's investigation. Braun, Alex Rodriguez, Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon are among more than a dozen players whose names have been tied to the now-closed clinic, Biogenesis of America. in the files whether the companies planned to challenge the subpoenas. “FedEx complies with all valid subpoenas, and we are unable to comment further,” company spokesman Scott Fiedler said. Said AT&T spokesman Marty Richter: “We respond to all lawfully issued subpoenas.” T-Mobile spokeswoman Anne Marshall said the company is looking into the request and has no comment. MLB opened its latest drug investigation following a Miami New Times report about Biogenesis in January. Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun and Cabrera
are among the players whose names appeared in Biogenesis documents, according to various media reports. All have denied any wrongdoing. Selig, speaking at the MLB draft Thursday night in New Jersey, declined to provide any details. “We’re in the midst of a very comprehensive investigation and it would be inappropriate for me to comment and therefore I won’t,” he said in between announcing first-round picks at the podium. “I’m proud of the fact we have the toughest drug-testing program, and you know what? This proves it.” Rodriguez, meanwhile,
plans to “monitor” developments in the investigation, and New York Yankees teammate Derek Jeter said he’ll comment after A-Rod does. MLB has already started interviewing players linked to Biogenesis. “Myself and others are being mentioned in a media report before the process is even concluded,” Rodriguez said Thursday in a statement issued by his new spokesman, Ron Berkowitz. “I will monitor the situation and comment when appropriate. As I have said previously, I am working out every day to get back on the field and help the Yankees win a championship. I am down here doing my job and working hard and will continue to do so until I’m back playing.” The All-Star third baseman is recovering from the hip surgery he underwent in January and regularly works out at the Yankees’ minor league complex in Tampa, Fla. After the Miami New Times story was published, Rodriguez issued a statement through spokesman Terry Fahn saying: “Alex Rodriguez was not Mr. Bosch’s patient, he was never treated by him and he was never advised by him. The purported documents referenced in the story at least as they relate to Alex Rodriguez are not legitimate.” Rodriguez did not stop to speak with reporters before or after Thursday’s workout in Tampa, where there was heavy rain from Tropical Storm Andrea. But Jeter did, saying he had spoken with A-Rod and that he seemed “fine,” but wouldn’t go into further details. “You guys know what I’m going to say,” the rehabbing Yankees captain said. “I do not comment on anyone’s situation until they comment on it first. Let him speak about it first.”
■ Horse Racing
Slop or not, Pletcher ready for Belmont NEW YORK (AP) — Sloppy track or not, here comes Todd Pletcher with another squad of 3-yearolds for a Triple Crown race. The trainer is taking aim on the Belmont Stakes this time, sending out a record five horses for Saturday’s final leg of the Triple Crown. Pletcher saddled a record-equaling five colts in the Kentucky Derby last month, with the best of the bunch over a wet track being third-place finisher Revolutionary. After sitting out the Preakness, Pletcher is back with Revolutionary, two other Derby runners in Palace Malice and Overanalyze and two fresh faces in Midnight Taboo and the filly Unlimited Budget. A sloppy track could be back as well. The National Weather Service is calling for heavy rains Friday into
Saturday with a chance of showers after 2 p.m. Post time for the Belmont is 6:36 p.m. “It doesn’t really matter whether it’s sloppy or fast, you just don’t want it to be sticky or heavy,” Pletcher said, referring to the track condition. He added that his horses “all have enough pedigree on wet tracks so it won’t compromise them too much.” That includes Unlimited Budget, who will try to make a little history. She can become the fourth filly to win the Belmont Pletcher’s Rags to Riches was the most recent in 2007 and could make Rosie Napravnik the second female jockey to win a Triple Crown race and first to win one with a filly. “I think this is one year the fillies are as good as the colts, and the numbers show it,” said Mike Repole, who owns Unlimited
Budget as well as Overanalyze and Midnight Taboo. “She’s a big filly, and she’s bigger than half the colts in the race.” Derby winner Orb is the 3-1 morning-line favorite, with Revolutionary the second choice at 9-2 and Preakness winner Oxbow third at 5-1. Unlimited Budget and Freedom Child are co-fourth choices at 8-1. The possibility of an offtrack bodes well for Freedom Child and a few Derby runners in the field of 14 matching the largest since 1996 and one shy of the record in 1983. Freedom Child, like Orb a son of Malibu Moon, flourished on a wet track at Belmont four weeks ago, winning the Peter Pan by a stunning 13 1/4 lengths. “If it’s wet, we’ll certainly take it,” said Freedom Child’s trainer Tom Albertrani. Orb handled the sloppy
track at Churchill Downs. Under Joel Rosario, the colt passed 16 horses in the final half mile for a 2 1/2length win over Golden Soul, who skipped the Preakness but is back for the Belmont. “I hope the weather is like this,” Orb trainer Shug McGaughey said on a warm, sunny Thursday morning at Belmont Park. “I want a fast track and a safe track, but if it rains they do a remarkable job here of getting it in great shape.” After Thursday’s races, Belmont’s main dirt track will be rolled and sealed “in anticipation of heavy rains,” said Glen Kozak, the New York Racing Association’s vice president of facilities and racing surfaces. Tractors will be equipped with heavy metal rollers that are used to compress the dirt so water doesn’t seep into the surface.

Smaller teams ruling IndyCar
Kennedy Wins The name in Victory Lane at Bowman Gray Stadium last Saturday night may not have been a familiar one, but the family most certainly was. Ben Kennedy, the 21year-old great-grandson of NASCAR founder Bill France Sr., captured his second career K&N Pro Series East win at the track France brought auto racing to in 1949. On hand was his mother, Lesa France Kennedy, who was present for a victory for the first time. Kennedy beat Dylan Kwasniewski, a highly regarded young driver considered one of NASCAR’s future stars.
Passing Tests Chase Elliott took a major step toward racing on superspeedways Wednesday when he tested an ARCA car at Pocono Raceway. Elliott took advantage of an ARCA Racing Series rule change that allows 17year-olds to drive at both Pocono Raceway and Kentucky Speedway this year as long as they complete a test and meet other requirements by the series. Elliott is entered in Saturday’s Pocono ARCA 200. “This is really a whole new experience for me,” Elliott said. “I’ve never been on a place this big. The car felt really good, as best as I can tell. I know the car’s fast. If we’re not completely up to speed, it’s just me not carrying enough speed through the corners. I’m still getting used to what this place is all about, and what it needs from a driver. I think I was a little off on the first run, but I’ll get there.”

Michael Annett looks on in the garage area during a NASCAR Nationwide Series practice session Nov. 2, 2012 at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas. Annett’s season was nearly over before it began, as he broke his sternum in the NASCAR Nationwide season opener at Daytona Speedway. But Annett is healthy again and hopeful of a strong finish at Iowa Speedway this weekend.
Special homecoming Annett return to hometown track after gruesome injury DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Michael Annett has always cherished racing at his home-state track. This time, Annett’s latest trip to Iowa Speedway will mark a major milestone in his comeback from a gruesome injury. Annett will race for the third time since fracturing and dislocating his sternum in February when the NASCAR Nationwide series runs at Newtown on Saturday night. The opportunity to race just 35 miles west of his hometown of Des Moines is special to Annett. But what makes it even more important for Annett is that the Newton track is where he finished fourth last August after starting 17th — a run that rivaled any in Annett’s short career. “This is where we took off,” Annett said. “Finishing fourth there the last time we were there, and being so close to winning the race, that’s the biggest reason why I wanted to make sure I’d be able to run Iowa.” Annett knows he’s lucky to racing anywhere this season after what happened at Daytona just over three months ago. Just 85 laps before a wreck that left over two dozen fans injured, Annett’s No. 43 car got tagged from behind, sending it into the wall. The 11-car crash shattered a bone in his chest.
In an instant, Annett went from chasing a Nationwide championship to a slow and grueling rehabilitation. Annett wasn’t allowed to lift anything over 10 pounds until early May, forced instead to ride an elliptical machine to maintain his cardio. He watched races from the pit box for three months before returning for the Charlotte race May 25, finishing 17th. He finished 13th at Dover last weekend. Annett said he hasn’t felt rusty since returning. But he has noticed that, in his view, the rest of the series has improved considerably. “I feel completely comfortable. It didn’t take too long for me there in Charlotte to realize how tough the competition in the Nationwide series this year is compared to last year,” Annett said. “Each race there’s probably 15 winning race cars, as to where last year there was five to 10 that might win it.” After years of middling results, Annett emerged last season as one of the best drivers in the Nationwide series. Annett racked up six top-five finishes in 2012, something he’d never done in the 105 races from 2008-11. He also finished in the top 10 17 times in 33 starts, and he wound up fifth in the Nationwide standings
even though he failed to win a pole or a race. Though Annett has put his injury behind him, he’s still fighting to get back to where he was last fall. “The toughest part was not being able to build on the momentum we had going into the season,” Annett said. “It felt like we were knocking on the door of our first win, and for sure going to be racing for a championship this year … everything was in place to go after that championship.” Annett almost certainly can’t win the title this season after missing eight races though. But it’s possible that such bad luck could end up being a blessing for Annett’s career. Annett and his team stepped back and re-evaluated their goals for 2013 in light of his injury. They realized that since racing solely for points would be, well, pointless, they should run to win every time out. Adapting to a more aggressive strategy isn’t as simple as it might sound. Last week at Dover, Annett took two tires near the end of the race instead of staying out and pushing for a higher finish. It was a natural call for Annett and his crew chief, Philippe Lopez, but Annett said they don’t plan to play it so safe the rest of the season.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Parity? There’s parity in IndyCar? Although drivers from Andretti and Penske are tied for the IndyCar Series points lead, it’s the small teams that are currently dominating the competition. Last weekend in Belle Isle was almost surreal as Mike Conway led the way for Dale Coyne Racing, which put two cars on the podium Saturday, and then team owner Sam Schmidt scored his first career IndyCar victory Sunday behind Simon Pagenaud. The strong showing from the little guys came on the heels of Tony Kanaan’s victory in the Indianapolis 500, the first official win for KV Racing Technology and the second time in three years a small team has won “The Greatest Spectacle In Racing.” Bryan Herta Autosport won the race in 2011 with Dan Wheldon. The win was huge for KV Racing: It led to primary sponsorship from Sunoco, in association with the Dreamworks animated movie “Turbo,” for the four remaining unsold races on Kanaan’s car. Filling the inventory means the team can complete the season without financial stress. All told, there have been six different winners in seven IndyCar races this season and none of them drive for mighty Chip Ganassi Racing or Team Penske. Although Andretti Autosport has three wins, two of them belong to James Hinchcliffe, who scored his first career victory in the season-opener at St. Pete and passed Takuma Sato in the final turn at Brazil last month for his second win. And Sato? Why, he gave AJ Foyt Racing its first win since 2002 when he won at Long Beach in April. What’s up is now down in IndyCar, which heads to Texas Motor Speedway this weekend for a Saturday night race where road-andstreet course ace Justin Wilson is the defending winner. “We never know who is going to be on top each weekend,” said Pagenaud, who scored his first IndyCar win Sunday to take Schmidt, the winningest team owner in Indy Lights, to Victory Lane in the big league.
Keselowski unfazed by latest points penalty SPARTA, Ky. (AP) — Brad Keselowski’s standing in the chase for his second consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship is an encouraging sign of where his team is headed. The Penske Racing driver foresees a better outlook once his team gets a handle on the circuit’s rules process. Keselowski was docked six points by NASCAR on Tuesday after his No. 2 Ford failed post-race
inspection at Dover for being too low. Combined with April’s 25-point penalty for having an illegal part at Texas, he enters this weekend’s race at Pocono Raceway 10th in points instead of possibly fourth. While neither the team nor Keselowski disputes NASCAR’s latest punishment, Keselowski said it has them more determined to bounce back and earn their first victory of the season, which they believe is within reach.
“I completely understood this week’s (penalty) and kind of stick up for NASCAR on that one. The other one, not so much,” Keselowski said during a promotional stop Wednesday at Kentucky Speedway. “But at this point, it kind of is what it is and you have to move forward and focus on the task at hand, which is having a strong run through the summer, winning races and be in position for the
Chase.” Keselowski is coming off a fifth-place run at Dover, his fifth top-five this season and the first since Bristol in March. He jumped two spots to eighth in points before the penalty that dropped him back down to the 10th and final spot in the Chase. Before returning to one of the five tracks he won on last season in a Dodge, Keselowski and the Penske team met in North Carolina to discuss the
penalties that included a $25,000 fine for crew chief Paul Wolfe. Sunday marked the first race back for Wolfe and several crew members for Keselowski and teammate Joey Logano after serving a three-race suspension — reduced from six on appeal — for the Texas infraction. The team issued a statement Tuesday blaming a broken part for the violation but added that it won’t appeal the penalty.
