Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure riders parked their wheels and took in a performance by the Eagles tribute band Hotel California on Sunday evening. The concert was held at Treasure Island and was the first Rock the River concert held at the city park.

Protecting NYC plans in place

Riders, residents enjoy outdoor concert

Removable floodwalls would be erected in lower Manhattan, and levees, gates and other defenses would be built elsewhere around the city under a nearly $20 billion plan Mayor Michael Bloomberg proposed Tuesday to protect New York from storms and the effects of global warming. The plan which would also include the building of marshes and the flood-proofing of homes and hospitals is one of the biggest, most sweeping projects ever proposed for defending a major U.S. city from the rising seas and severe weather that climate change is expected to bring.

Rain falls as crews fight fire With evacuees anxious to return, firefighters worked Sunday to dig up and extinguish hot spots to protect homes spared by the most destructive wildfire in Colorado’s history. The laborintensive work is necessary because extremely dry grass and trees could quickly ignite if wind stirs up hot spots in the densely wooded Black Forest near Colorado Springs. See Page 9.

Troy City Councilman Tom Kendall, along with his wife Beverly, and daughters Lisa and Kristi, sponsored the Hotel California band for the first River Rock concert at Treasure Island. When asked why he sponsored the event, Kendall quipped, “sometimes you got to put your money where your mouth is.” Kendall said the city’s riverfront is an “under utilized asset” of the Troy community. “I’m really pleased and I think it sort of proves that this is a venue we could use,” Kendall said. “We keep saying we want to use Treasure Island and so, let’s do it!” BE THE MATCH Tom Kendall and his wife Beverly sponsored the first Rock on the River

Tipp City couple foster those in need




WASHINGTON (AP) Current and former top U.S. officials on Sunday defended the government’s collection of phone and Internet data following new revelations about the secret surveillance programs, saying the operations were essential in disrupting terrorist plots and did not infringe on Americans’ civil liberties. In interviews on Sunday talk shows, guests ranging from White House chief of staff Denis McDonough to former Vice President Dick Cheney and former CIA and National Security Agency head Michael Hayden said the government’s reliance on data collection from both Americans and foreign nationals was constitutional and carefully overseen by executive, legislative and court authorities. All three branches of government, using “aggressive internal checks inside the administration, from inspectors general and routine audits, are overseeing how we do these programs,” McDonough said. He added, “I think that the American people can feel confident that we have those three branches looking.” The latest reassurances came as a new Washington Post report Sunday described the massive intertwined structure of four major data collection programs that have been set up by the government since the 9/11 attacks. The Post report follows earlier stories based on documents provided by NSA contractor Edward Snowden. Two secret programs, the Post reported in its new disclosures, are aimed at phone and Internet metadata, while two more target contents of phone and Internet communications. Metadata includes logs and timing of phone calls


That is Gary Boggs’ advice to potential foster parents. He and his wife Pat have been working with children for 15 years, seeing 25 fosters go in and out of their home in that time. They are still in touch with seven of those children. The kids have ranged from a 6 month old to 21 years old (kids are allowed in foster care as long as they’re still in school), and visited with them from five days to 11 years. The Boggs have had anywhere from one to five kids with them at one time in the house. “It’s a ministry, it’s a need, it’s a challenge, it’s a blessing,” Pat said. The Tipp City couple have been married for 29 years and in ministry for all of them. Gary serves as

pastor at First Baptist Church in Tipp City. Although they have no biological children, both Gary and Pat said they have a heart for kids. “We desperately wanted to have an impact on the life of kids,” Gary said. That first chance came when they were serving at a church in Michigan in 1988. A parishioner asked the Boggses if they could take care of her developmentally disabled grandson until the mother could get herself together. Although the suggestion took them by surprise, the Boggs agreed. “We prayed about it and felt at peace,” Pat said. Jimmy, 9, lived with them for a year. Even though he was very energetic, Pat described taking care of him as “no biggie.” Jimmy is now in his 30s and works in a warehouse. They didn’t get the opportunity to work with kids again for almost a decade.


Gary Boggs and his wife Pat have now been working with children for 15 years, seeing 25 fosters go in and out of their home in that time. The Boggses moved from Michigan to outside Columbus, in a town called Newark (pronounced “nerk”). Gary was con-

NSA • CONTINUED FROM A1 and lists of Internet communications, but does not include the actual contents of communications. Even without knowing those contents, intelligence officials can learn much from metadata, including likely locations and patterns of behavior. A previously reported surveillance program aimed at the phone logs and location information of millions of Americans is called Mainway, the Post reported. A second program targeting the Internet contact logs and location information of foreign users is called Marina. A third program, which intercepts telephone calls and routes their contents to government listeners, is called Nucleon. A fourth program, Prism, exposed recently by Snowden, forces major Internet firms to turn over the detailed contents of Internet communications. Prism is aimed at foreign users but sometimes also sweeps up the content of Americans’ emails and other Internet communications, officials have acknowledged. “The metadata story does touch upon Americans in a massive way with phone records but not the content. The Prism story is about foreigners and it is about content,” Hayden said told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Rep. Mike Rogers, who heads the House Intelligence Committee, said that any phone metadata from Americans swept up in the surveillance is held under careful safeguards, kept in a “lockbox” that can only be accessed if it becomes relevant to terror investigations. U.S. officials also said Saturday that gathered data is destroyed every five years. “This is a lock box with only phone numbers, no names, no addresses in it, we’ve used it sparingly,” Rogers, R-Mich., said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” But one Congressional critic of the secrecy surrounding the government’s surveillance raised doubts about the effectiveness about the widespread collection of Americans’ phone metadata. “I don’t think collecting millions and millions of Americans’ phone calls now this is the metadata, this is the time, place, to whom you direct the calls is making us any safer,” said Sen. Mark Udall, DColorado. Udall said he would introduce a bill this week to narrow the reach of that collection to only “those who have a link to terrorism.” Hayden said he worried

manipulative homes, where drugs and abuse are common. Learning how to communicate honestly is an important part of their stay in the Boggs’ home. The Boggs also try to make sure their house is a “safe haven.” One girl needed Pat to stand in the bathroom just so she could take a shower, due to past traumatic experiences. “You do what you can do to help them,” Pat explained. “We have a desire to teach them that there’s a different way than what they’ve been used to.” Although the Boggses try not to push their faith, they are open about what they believe. Every night, they do night time prayers together as a household. The kids don’t have to participate, but they do need to be in the room. Foster children attend church with them, and get in the habit of grace at meals. “I’ve baptized six of them, and had the privilege to lead some to Christ,” Gary said. They currently have four foster children living with them now: a 12-year-old girl, and three boys aged 10, 7 and 4. Three of those children are siblings (and the other one has ingratiated himself right in). Although the Boggses don’t hide the fact that the children are fosters, they don’t readily introduce them that way either.

Next Door If you know someone who should be profiled in our Next Door feature, contact City Editor Melody Vallieu at 440-6265, or send her an email at “We try not to stigmatize them (as foster kids),” Pat said. She joked, though, that she does get some odd looks when she says “I’m 62 and I’ve got four kids.” Both Gary and Pat actively encourage others to become foster parents because of the great need, but they note compassion and tolerance are necessary qualities. “You have to have a nonjudgmental love for kids,” Gary said. They also say just do your best — realize that you’re not getting perfect kids, and you’re not perfect either. “There are some that you feel like you’ve made headway with, and some you have to hand over to the Lord,” Pat said.

Sun Maze Recycled Sailboat from Martha Stewart

Just in time for summer, this recycled project would be perfect for backyard fun. Make a sailboat or two with your child using just a few things you’d more than likely throw away. Then set them loose with a tub of water to watch their sailboat sail. For this easy project, you’ll need (1 for each sailboat): - coffee can lid - drinking straw - paper - Play-Doh Cut decorative paper into a right triangle, with the bottom shorter than the vertical edge. Punch three holes along vertical edge. Weave a drinking straw through the holes. Lodge the end of the straw into a ball into Play-Doh, and affix the sail to the top side of a coffee can lid.

Question: Do you feel President Barack Obama deserves to be impeached?

Watch for final poll results in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.

Watch for a new poll question in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.


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

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Khaleej Times, Dubai, on offering a reward for arrest and killing of Islamist militants: Washington is fond of offshore expeditions and there seems to be no second thoughts. The latest stunt is the State Department’s offer to reward people with cash to the tune of $5 million for information leading to the arrest or killing of Islamist militants in North and West Africa. The move is perhaps intended to marginalize terrorists in the region and force them to go underground so that relative peace could be achieved. Though it is very difficult to exactly pinpoint as to where the wanted men are hiding and operating from in an uninhabitable terrain, the announcement could result in retribution activities. The U.S. wants to capture Boko Haram leader Abubaker Shekau and other leading al-Qaida figures in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). The militants are said to be behind the ransom, kidnapping and murder of Westerners in the Sahara desert, including three U.S. hostages killed in Algeria.

The Telegraph, London, on Britain stand■ Please ing on the edge of a potential energy boom: include your full The solution to Britain’s energy problems name and telecould well be beneath our feet. On Monday, IGas, phone number. one of the leading shale gas explorers, revealed that there may be as much as 172 trillion cubic feet of shale gas in the area that it has a license to explore in the North West of England — equivalent to more than 50 years of UK usage. Of course, we do not know for sure if this entire amount is either there or fully exploitable, but it is a hopeful sign nonetheless. Cuadrilla, another energy firm, estimates that its license area near Blackpool contains roughly 200 trillion cubic feet. The only way to exploit all this potential is to drill wells and “frack,” and there the political challenges begin. Fears about the tremors that occurred when Cuadrilla carried out fracking in 2011 — a study by Durham University found that seismic events caused by fracking are actually “low compared to other manmade triggers” — led to a damaging one-year moratorium. The Government and the industry have to reassure local communities that concerns will be listened to and that people’s quality of life will not suffer if fracking goes ahead. One solution might be payment to localities affected. However, the news from IGas brings the hope that shale gas might revolutionize energy production, cut the need for imports and have geopolitical implications similar to the North Sea oil exploration of the late Sixties. It could help consumers, as it has done in the United States, by putting a cap on gas bills, and boost the labor market by creating an estimated 70,000 jobs. Britain needs to make the most of this golden opportunity; the Chancellor is right to offer tax breaks to companies looking to explore. We stand on the edge of a potential resource boom, if only we have the courage to exploit it.

Barney might not be too far off with comment Lem Barney, a former football player and member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, made headlines last week when he said football could become extinct within 20 years. Barney is one of a number of former players suing the NFL because of injuries he suffered while playing, so he’s not exactly an unbiased observer. But he might not be far off. I know it seems impossible to think that football, the country’s favorite sport and a multi-billion dollar industry, could be in trouble. In fact, it would be close to heresy for someone from Troy to even entertain the idea, considering that football is king here. Not only that, but we live in a state where Ohio State football is almost a religion – the only difference between Ohio State and religion being that people around here are more dedicated to Ohio State. But football is in long-term trouble. The growing number of injuries, or at least the growing number of reported injuries, from the sport have become a major issue. Concussions have been getting most of the press lately, along with players and former players

David Lindeman Troy Daily News Columnist shooting themselves and other people. But that’s only part of the problem. Over the years, a number of old football players have told me how they wished they would have never played the game. Bad backs, bad knees and various other injuries are a steep price to pay for a few days of glory. I always was glad that my boys were too small and too skinny to seriously consider playing football. There is an entire new generation of parents today that have to be thinking about steering their boys towards other sports. You might get hurt playing basketball or baseball or any sport, really, but the odds for major injuries are a lot higher playing football. Part of the problem is athletes

— Ashlee Spradlin Troy

today are bigger and faster and stronger. More mass colliding at higher speeds means more injuries. Part of the problem is the way the game is played. Part of the problem is that some pieces of protective gear, such as a helmets, are used as weapons. This isn’t the first time football’s future has been in doubt. Back in 1905, in the brutal early days of the game, 19 deaths were reported during football games. And this was before there was an NFL. There was a national outcry to ban the sport as being too dangerous for America’s young men. Schools such as Northwestern and Duke dropped the sport (some might argue they never actually picked it up again but that’s another story). Finally, in an effort to save the game, President Theodore Roosevelt got involved. He called together leaders of top colleges and demanded they make rule changes. When Teddy talked, people listened. Rules were passed that changed the way the game was played, including making the forward pass a more viable option. If TR hadn’t got involved, we all might be playing soccer today. There would be no Super Bowl! Peyton Manning would just be handing the ball off,

he’d never be throwing it. A few years later more safety rules were passed and football survived … at least, until now. Football is so popular that it seems almost inconceivable it would ever decline. But you know what? Bicycle racing was a big deal at the turn of the 20th century. Boxing and horse racing at one time attracted a lot more attention than pro football. For one reason or another, they all lost a lot of their popularity. Football is facing a safety crisis. It won’t hurt the game this year or next year or maybe even 10 years, but eventually football will feel the pinch from concerned parents and from athletes with any brains who can make more money for a longer period of time in almost any other sport. I like watching football as much as the next guy and hope the NFL, colleges and high schools come up with some answers. Change never is easy, but it’s easier to face up to it before it becomes a matter a pure survival. Where’s Teddy Roosevelt when you need him?

Heinz Flohe, Ottmar Walter BERLIN (AP) — Heinz Flohe and Ottmar Walter, soccer stars who played on World Cup-winning teams for West Germany, have died. Flohe, a member of the 1974 squad, died Saturday at 65. Walter, part of the team that won the 1954 title, died Sunday at 89. Flohe died in his home city of Euskirchen, the German Football Association said Sunday. He had been in a coma for more than three years following a collapse. The former FC Cologne midfielder played 39 games for West Germany, scoring eight goals. Flohe also captained Cologne when it won the league and German cup titles in 1978. Germany won the 1974 World Cup at home, beating the Netherlands 2-1 in the final. Walter died in a care home, the

German federation said. He scored 336 goals in 321 matches for FC Kaiserslautern, where he played center forward alongside brother Fritz, who died in 2002. The Walter brothers won the German league together in 1951 and 1953 and were part of the national team that won the World Cup after beating Hungary 3-2 in the 1954 final. Hungary led 2-0 before West Germany recovered in what became known as the “Miracle of Bern.”

Thomas Penfield WASHINGTON — Thomas Penfield Jackson, who as a federal judge in Washington presided over a historic Microsoft antitrust case and the drug possession trial of former Mayor Marion Barry, has died. Jackson died at his home in Compton, Md., his wife Patricia told The Associated Press on Sunday. He was 76 and had cancer.




Husband has been hiding his ‘friend’ from you Dear Annie: I have been married to the love of my life for several years. Our children are all grown and out of the nest. I recently learned that over the past few months my husband has had numerous telephone conversations with a female acquaintance. I know this woman, too, although not very well. I travel for work several times a month, and that's when most of these conversations took place. My husband says they are "just friends," that she's young and looks to him for advice. Annie, she's younger than I am, but not so young that she still needs advice from someone old enough to be her father. Do you think this could be a case of "where there's smoke there's fire"? What should I do? — Country Gal Dear Gal: There may not be fire, but only because you stomped it out. Your husband is not being forthcoming when he says they are "just friends." The fact that most of these calls took place when you were out of town indicates he was hiding them, which means he is not so innocent in his intentions. Nothing may have happened, but he didn't discourage her attentions or make their contact transparent to you. Tell him the "friendship" is over, or it's time to see a marriage counselor. Or an attorney. Dear Annie: In raising our children, we always stressed proper etiquette and thought they knew how to behave. However, we recently had lunch with one of our adult sons in a restaurant. He continued to talk with food in his mouth, placing his other hand about two inches away from his face. After witnessing this a couple of times, I asked him to please not do that as it is not only rude, but, between the food and his hand, we couldn't understand a word he was saying. He replied that it is rude if one doesn't place their hand in front of their mouth while chewing. What happened to the rule "never talk with your mouth full"? — Dismayed Parents Dear Parents: We are going to assume your son witnessed someone doing this and decided it was appropriate. It is not. One should chew with one's mouth closed. One should swallow food before opening one's mouth to speak. If you can do both of those things, there is no reason to put your hand over your mouth and prevent people from seeing your lips and hearing your voice clearly. You have our permission to send this to your misinformed child. Dear Annie: Please pass this along to "Trying To Be a Stepdad," whose wife doesn't back him up when he refuses to buy the kids expensive things. My ex-wife was exactly the same. Anytime I would try to teach our two sons that you can't have everything you ask for, I would be disregarded. I served in the Navy, and the kids knew if I said "no," the next time my ship went out to sea, their mother would get them whatever they wanted. The kids never had to work, save or wait for anything. Two years after I retired, my wife left me for half of my pension, and I inherited $50,000 in credit card debt. I am still paying it off eight years later. I tried to be a good provider, but my ex could spend it quicker than I could reload the ATM. My oldest son and I don't communicate because I don't bail him out every time he needs money. My younger son and I have a good relationship because he now understands why I am this way. If "Trying" and his wife can't stand united, especially on bigticket items, he will be the one picking up the tab for a long time. — Been There, Retired Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Sound Off: A clear problem with packaging Dear Readers: Here is this week’s Sound Off, about product packaging: “Packaging needs improvement. Bottles of detergent and softener are similar and need larger print identifying their content. This also goes for shampoos and conditioners, which are hard to distinguish in the shower. “Transparent or clear bottles also would make it possible to see when the contents are almost used up. Flat lids make it possible to store containers upside down to use all the contents. I’d like to encourage your readers to use 800 numbers to voice suggestions or complaints.

Hints from Heloise Columnist Most companies are grateful and responsive.” — M.B., via email A common complaint from my millions and millions of readers across the country. Are you listening, manufacturers? — Heloise FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Other uses

for old pillowcases: • Use to protect hanging clothes. • Place on a pet’s favorite sleeping spot to catch hair. • Store extra sheets in one. • Use as a travel laundry bag. • Make into a sewingmachine cover. — Heloise HANDY TOWEL Dear Heloise: My husband has a whole bunch of golf towels. They have a grommet (or hole) in the corner that has a hook so he can attach them to his golf bag. Since he has so many, I took one that matched my decor for the kitchen. I can clip it to the

oven or refrigerator handle, and it is always handy when I need it. — Brenda, via email I love this! I’m going to buy a set just for the kitchen, and then they won’t “go MIA” to any another part of the house. — Heloise GAME NIGHT Dear Heloise: My family and I love to play board games. Whenever we get a new one, before we start playing, I organize it. If there are paper cards, etc., I laminate them and place the pieces into plastic bags. It helps our games last much longer. — Sheila in North Carolina

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Monday, June 17, the 168th day of 2013. There are 197 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 17, 1963, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Abington (Pa.) School District v. Schempp, struck down, 8-1, rules requiring the recitation of the Lord’s Prayer or reading of Biblical verses in public schools. On this date: • In 1397, the Treaty of Kalmar was signed, creating a union between the kingdoms of Sweden, Denmark and Norway. • In 1775, the Revolutionary War Battle of Bunker Hill resulted in a

costly victory for the British, who suffered heavy losses. • In 1885, the Statue of Liberty arrived in New York Harbor aboard the French ship Isere. • In 1928, Amelia Earhart embarked on a trans-Atlantic flight from Newfoundland to Wales with pilots Wilmer Stultz and Louis Gordon, becoming the first woman to make the trip as a passenger. • In 1933, the “Kansas City Massacre” took place outside Union Station in Kansas City, Mo., as a group of gunmen attacked law enforcement officers escorting federal prisoner Frank Nash; four of the offi-

cers were killed, along with Nash. • In 1961, Soviet ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev defected to the West while his troupe was in Paris. • Today’s Birthdays: Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is 70.

Rain falls as crews fight Colo. fire COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — With evacuees anxious to return, firefighters worked Sunday to dig up and extinguish hot spots to protect homes spared by the most destructive wildfire in Colorado’s history. The labor-intensive work is necessary because extremely dry grass and trees could quickly ignite if wind stirs up hot spots in the densely wooded Black Forest near Colorado Springs. Firefighters did get some help from the weather as steady rain moved through the area Sunday afternoon. But that weather came with some lightning, which sparked a small grass fire near one home. “Every bit of rain helps the crews mop up. It’s just adding another nail in the coffin,” fire spokesman Brandon Hampton said. Nearly 500 homes have been burned by the 22square-mile fire, which is 65 percent contained. Crews hope to have it fully under control by Thursday. Even though the fire was no longer active enough on Sunday to produce a large smoke plume, El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa said it wasn’t safe for people to return home until roads and downed power lines were repaired. Additionally, the death of two unidentified people trying to flee the fire was still being investigated. Maketa said he was in no rush to have people return to an area that, at least for

Some evacuees outside the burn area have been allowed back home. Those with property in the burn area have returned with escorts to check on their property or to pick up items, but Maketa said some were then refusing to

With only 30 minutes to evacuate, she only had time to find a family cat and to open a corral gate so the horses could flee. Jordan and two adult siblings went to the property the next day with a sheriff’s escort and found the horses, unhurt, standing in their corral. “It was just skeletons of vehicles and ash everywhere. It’s haunting. It looks like it’s right out of a

leave once they were done. He urged fire victims to cooperate or risk being arrested. Trudy Dawson, 59, was at work when the fire broke out Tuesday and quickly spread in recordbreaking heat and strong winds. Her 25-year-old daughter, Jordan, who was on her way from Denver to visit, spotted the smoke, called her mother and went to the house.

horror movie,” Jordan Dawson said. It’s unknown what sparked the blaze, but investigators believe it was human-caused and have asked for help from the state and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives as they sift through the ash. It’s only a few miles away from the state’s second most destructive wild-

fire, the Waldo Canyon Fire, which burned last summer. The memory of that fire may have made residents especially appreciative of firefighters. About 1,000 people turned out to line the road and cheer firefighters as they returned from lines Saturday night, fire spokesman Brandon Hampton said. Some of the aircraft used to fight the Black Forest Fire and other Front Range fires have been moved to fight a nearly 500-acre wildfire near Rifle Falls State Park in western Colorado. That fire erupted Friday from a smoldering lightning strike the day before, spokesman Pat Thrasher said. The residents of 12 homes were ordered to leave along with campers in the park as well as Rifle Mountain Park and the nearby White River National Forest. Crews were closer to containing other wildfires that broke out around the same time as Black Forest. In Canon City, 50 miles to the southwest, a fire that destroyed 48 buildings at Royal Gorge Bridge & Park was 85 percent contained and the park’s scenic railroad was running again. A lightning-sparked fire in Rocky Mountain National Park had burned nearly 500 acres and was 60 percent contained. In New Mexico, crews were trying to protect homes in a historic mining town from a 35-square mile wildfire that had prompted 26 people to leave their homes.

Protecting NYC Levees, removable walls proposed NEW YORK (AP) — Removable floodwalls would be erected in lower Manhattan, and levees, gates and other defenses would be built elsewhere around the city under a nearly $20 billion plan Mayor Michael Bloomberg proposed Tuesday to protect New York from storms and the effects of global warming. The plan which would also include the building of marshes and the floodproofing of homes and hospitals is one of the biggest, most sweeping projects ever proposed for defending a major U.S. city from the rising seas and severe weather that climate change is expected to bring. It was outlined seven months after Superstorm Sandy drove home the danger by swamping lower Manhattan and smashing homes and businesses in other shoreline neighborhoods. “This is urgent work, and it must begin now,” Bloomberg said in a speech at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, acknowledging that much of the construction would extend beyond the end of his term this year. “Piece by piece, over many years and even decades, we can build a city that’s capable of preparing better, withstanding more and overcoming anything.”

Environmentalists, real estate interests and local officials hailed the $19.5 billion proposal as farreaching and comprehensive. It would dwarf the estimated $12 billion that the Army Corps of Engineers has spent so far to improve the New Orleans area’s floodwalls, gates and levees since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. “It’s ambitious, but it’s appropriately ambitious,” said Judith Rodin, the president of the Rockefeller Foundation, who co-chaired a state storm protection study commission. Still, it remains to be seen how the ideas will fare in a future mayoral administration and what kind of support financial and otherwise they might get from the federal government and other entities, not to mention from New Yorkers themselves. Several mayoral candidates praised the mayor for thinking big, and Democrat Sal Albanese, Republican George McDonald and GOP front-runner Joe Lhota said they were inclined to pursue its major projects. Democratic frontrunner Christine Quinn, who heads a City Council that is making its own proposals, called Bloomberg’s report “a roadmap for future mayors.” But Republican John

ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) — A steady hand gave Justin Rose the shiny U.S. Open Trophy. A wild ride gave Phil Mickelson yet another silver medal. Rose captured his first major championship on Sunday with remarkable calm and three pure shots on the punishing closing holes at Merion. A par on the 18th hole gave him an even-par 70, and that was good enough to become the first Englishman in 43 years to win America’s national championship. Rose hit 5-iron to the first cut of rough, pin-high on the 17th for an easy par. He smashed the most important tee shot of his career down the middle on the final hole, about 15 feet short of the famous Ben Hogan plaque. And his 4-iron rolled near the pin and settled against the collar of the green. “When I came over the hill and saw my ball laying in the fairway, I thought, ‘This is my

moment.’ It was me hitting from the middle of the fairway,” Rose said. As usual, someone’s big moment in the U.S. Open came at Mickelson’s expense. Rose was in the scoring area a half-mile from the grandstands behind the 18th green where the fans began to chant, “Let’s go Phil!” as Mickelson paced off a last-ditch effort to force a playoff. It was a long shot — the 18th hole didn’t yield a single birdie all weekend. From about 40 yards away, Mickelson’s chip for birdie raced by the cup, securing Rose’s victory. Mickelson, already in the U.S. Open record book with five second-place finishes, added another that will hurt as much any of them. Sunday was his 43rd birthday. It was the first time he was equipped with the outright lead going into the last day. His week

began with a cross-country trip home to San Diego to watch his oldest daughter graduate from the eighth grade, returning just three hours before his tee time on Thursday. This was the same daughter born the day after his first runner-up finish in 1999. All the stars were aligned. None of the putts fell in. Mickelson surged back into the lead by holing out from 75 yards in thick rough on the 10th hole for eagle, another moment that made it seem like surely was his time. The cheer could be heard across the road, through the trees, loud enough that Rose knew exactly what had happened. But on the easiest hole at Merion, Mickelson drilled a wedge over the green on the par3 13th and made bogey. What hurt Mickelson even more was a wedge from about

U.S. Open ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 121 yards on the 15th hole. It should have given him a good look at birdie, but it came up so short that Mickelson’s best chance was to use one of his five wedges to chip from the front of the green. He hit that one too far, 25 feet by the hole, and the bogey wound up costing him a chance at the major he covets. Mickelson wound up with a bogey on the 18th for a 74 and tied for second

with Jason Day, who closed with a 71. “Heartbreak,” Mickelson said. “This is tough to swallow after coming so close. This was my best chance of all of them. I had a golf course I really liked. I felt this was as good an opportunity as you could ask for. It really hurts.” Day appeared to salvage his round by chipping in for bogey on the 11th hole, and he was still in the picture when he made a 12-foot par putt on the

17th to stay one shot behind. But he put his approach into the bunker left of the 18th green, blasted out to about 7 feet and missed the putt. The back nine was a four-way battle that included Hunter Mahan, who played in the last group with Mickelson. He was one shot out of the lead until he three-putted the 15th hole for a double bogey, and then closed with back-to-back bogeys when his hopes were gone. Mahan had a 75 and tied

for fourth with Billy Horschel (74), Ernie Els (69) and Jason Dufner, who had a 67 despite making triple bogey on the 15th hole. Rose finished at 1-over 281, eight shots higher than David Graham’s winning score in 1981 when the U.S. Open was last held at Merion.

Milestone victory Biffle gives Ford 1,000 overall NASCAR win


Boston Bruins’ Rich Peverley (49) falls to the ice as he keeps the puck from Chicago Blackhawks’ Jonathan Toews in the second period during Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals Saturday in Chicago.

Putting in serious OT 10 periods in 2 games in tied Stanley Cup Finals BOSTON (AP) — Tyler Seguin knew something had to be said. And he was pretty sure it wouldn’t be fit for public consumption. After the Chicago Blackhawks badly outplayed the Boston Bruins in the first period of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals Saturday night, Seguin ditched the microphone he had been wearing as part of the TV broadcast. Then he headed back into the dressing room so the team could hash out its problems in peace. “It was really a mix of everybody saying something,” Seguin said. “I definitely knew it was coming, so I threw my shoulder pads in the training room and put a towel over it so no one could hear what we were saying. I think we needed that team wake-up call.” The 2010 and ‘11 Stanley Cup champions were in Boston on Sunday for the third game of the best-of-seven finals on Monday night. Neither team skated on the offday, instead choosing to conserve their energy after playing 10 periods while trading overtime victories that left the series tied at one game apiece. “It’s a lot about getting your rest,” Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith said after arriving in Boston about an hour late because of air traffic. “It’s not rocket science, you just get sleep and do as best you can and do all those little things to get ready to go.” Chicago took the first one, winning a triple-OT thriller after 52 extra minutes. Then the Blackhawks started Game 2 by sending 19 shots — to Boston’s four — at Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask in the first period to take a 1-0 lead. “Not much needed to be said after that first period,” said Chris Kelly, who was one of the more vocal players in the dressing room. “I think Tuukka pointed out that was a pretty terrible period by our team. If it wasn’t for Tuukka, it would have

been a lot worse.” Neither Kelly nor coach Claude Julien nor any of the other Bruins would divulge what was said in the room. But something snapped them out of their funk. “Claude came in a little bit later, but I think we were all equally upset about that first period,” said Daniel Paille, who scored at 13:48 of overtime to end it. “Definitely, Claude let us know and it was a way for us to wake up. And, also, players were keeping each other accountable, too, so it was good.” Whatever was said, the Blackhawks managed only 15 shots over the next two-plus periods to Boston’s 24. For the game, the Bruins had 50 hits — 10 by Milan Lucic — to 34 for Chicago. “They’re in the Stanley Cup final for a reason,” Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane said. “It’s not like you’re going to have the momentum or dominate for three periods. Obviously, we’d love that. “We know momentum is huge in the playoffs. You want to keep it as long as you can.” But Blackhawks forward Dave Bolland said they relaxed after taking an early lead and dominating the first period. Another goal was disallowed when the referee lost sight of the puck and blew the whistle moments before it rolled under Rask and over the goal line. “You always have to have your foot on the gas against this team,” Bolland said. “They’re a physical team. You see the guys they have. They’re a big team and they play hard and they’re going to hit, so you’ve got to be ready for that.” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said he didn’t think the team lost momentum by having an extra day off before Game 1 on Wednesday and Game 2 on Saturday. “We had a great first period,” he said. “We did everything we wanted except get to two (goals).”

BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — Greg Biffle gave Ford a milestone victory — right down the road from company headquarters. Biffle raced to his second straight Sprint Cup win at Michigan International Speedway, easily holding off Kevin Harvick after points leader Jimmie Johnson smacked the wall in the final laps Sunday. It was the 1,000th victory for Ford Motor Company across NASCAR’s three national series — Cup, Nationwide and Truck. “What a great moment this is,” said Jamie Allison, director of Ford Racing. “We couldn’t be prouder to have this moment come here today at Michigan in front of so many of our Ford friends. What a great race and a great day for Ford.” It was Biffle’s first win since he overtook Johnson to win at MIS in August. Johnson’s engine faltered with six laps left in that race. This time, he was about a second behind Biffle with three laps to go — but a tire gave way, and he dropped all the way to 28th. “I don’t want to see anybody wreck,” Biffle said. “It makes you feel good when you push the guy over the edge. He made a mistake, and that’s what makes you feel good. You outsmarted him, or you beat him at his game.” Harvick was second, 3 seconds behind Biffle. Martin Truex Jr. was next, followed by Kyle Busch and Tony Stewart. Johnson wasn’t the only big name who ran into trouble. Jeff Gordon was out of contention almost immediately when he hit a spinning Bobby Labonte less than 10 laps into the 200-lap, 400-mile race. Gordon finished 39th, one spot behind Kasey Kahne, who led at the halfway point but appeared to blow a tire and went sliding into the


Sprint Cup Series driver Greg Biffle celebrates in the winner’s circle after winning the NASCAR Quicken Loans 400 auto race at Michigan International Speedway, Sunday in Brooklyn, Mich. wall. Kahne’s car caught fire, but he was able to climb out quickly. Dale Earnhardt Jr., who won at MIS last June, finished 37th Sunday. He led for 34 laps, but his engine acted up about twothirds of the way through the race. There were eight cautions for 38 laps. Biffle cruised to the finish in his No. 16 Ford. He finished second to Johnson the previous weekend at Pocono, but this time there was nobody left to challenge him at the end. It was Ford’s third Cup victory of the year — Carl Edwards and David Ragan won at Phoenix and Talladega. Sunday was Ford Motor Company’s 110th birthday. “There have been a lot of great teams and a lot of great drivers, a lot of great engine builders that have contributed to Ford’s success,” Roush Fenway Racing owner Jack Roush said. “I’m just proud and honored to be part of that.” This was the second

Cup win of the year for Roush Fenway. It’s been an emotional week for the racing community after the death of driver Jason Leffler on Wednesday at a dirt-track race in New Jersey. Biffle was quick to acknowledge Leffler while he celebrated his Father’s Day victory. “We are thinking about little Charlie Leffler that doesn’t have a father today,” he said. Biffle earned his 19th career victory and boosted his chances to reach the Chase for the Sprint Cup, moving from 10th to eighth in the standings. Biffle finished in the top 10 for the 13th time in 21 races at MIS, which is about 60 miles from Ford headquarters in Dearborn. Edwards finished eighth. Kurt Busch qualified second but went into an early spin and finished 35th. Johnson still has a comfortable lead in standings, although Edwards closed the gap at the top from 51 points to 31. Johnson had a chance at his fourth vic-

tory of the year before scraping the wall late. Johnson has still never won a Cup race at MIS. “I thought this would be the year,” he said. “Most of the time we’re leading and something happens, but I thought, ‘OK, maybe coming from behind would be the difference.’ But something happened.” Johnson’s late mishap in his No. 48 Chevrolet did not result in a caution, so Biffle maintained his comfortable lead over Harvick. “I wasn’t catching the 16 and didn’t really feel it necessary to have a tire failure or an issue at that particular point,” Harvick said. “So our best bet at that point was the 48 catches the 16 and something happening as those two guys were racing. But we just maintained and managed our gap between us and (Truex) to just hold that track position and not have anything silly happen.” Harvick moved up one spot to fourth in the standings. Earnhardt fell from fourth to seventh.

Fallout lingers a year after Sandusky trial HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — In the year since eight young men took the stand to testify they were sexually abused by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, the scandal has played out in the courts, in the halls of the university and in continuing debate about how it was handled and what it meant. Two Penn State trustees made a case this month that the university has already made substantial improvements in child safety and its internal governance, with more changes on the way, including a search for a new president. Board chairman Keith Masser said the school can already claim to be more efficient, more transparent and more accountable, a national model for university governance. He sees Penn State turning a corner. “There’s a lot of inaccurate information and negative information that’s out there, and … I want to make sure that we promote

and discuss all the good things that have been done and we’re doing,” he said in an interview in New York with The Associated Press. The fallout from the revelations that Sandusky was a child molester who used his ties to the university to groom and victimize boys has hardly been confined to State College. There, debate continues about whether the school should have agreed to NCAA penalties, whether legendary coach Joe Paterno was treated fairly in his firing and a subsequent university investigation and what role the football team should play in campus life. Sandusky, 69, is serving a 30- to 60-year state prison sentence after being convicted last year of sexually abusing 10 boys. He has maintains his innocence and has launched appeals, a process that could take many years. For months now, Penn State has been negotiating with lawyers for about 30 young men who assert they were abused by Sandusky.

Many of them didn’t testify against Sandusky and haven’t sued, so the nature of their allegations isn’t publicly known. The university’s goal is to settle their claims and avoid trial, and the man brought in to help facilitate those talks said he’s optimistic the end is near. “We’re getting closer,” said Ken Feinberg, who has been involved in many other high-profile group settlements, including the compensation funds for 9/11 and Boston Marathon bombing victims. “We should have this done, I hope, in the next couple of weeks. But it’s not done yet the discussions continue.” The NCAA penalties, which included a $60 million fine, a four-year ban on postseason play, a temporary reduction in football scholarships and the elimination of 112 Paterno-era wins, have triggered several lawsuits, including one by Gov. Tom Corbett that a federal judge has dismissed. Paterno’s family and others with Penn State ties

have also sued, and the NCAA has gone to court to challenge a state law that mandates the $60 million should be spent on child abuse prevention efforts within the state, not elsewhere. Attorney General Kathleen Kane has ordered a review into how the Sandusky investigation was handled under her predecessors: Corbett and Linda Kelly, the woman he picked to complete his term as the state’s top prosecutor. The Sandusky scandal is likely to be a campaign topic next year, when Corbett is expected to seek a second term. The Legislature is working on changes to state law based on shortcomings in child abuse protection that the Sandusky case helped expose, and it’s probable that some of the proposals will be enacted this year. The U.S. Department of Education has been investigating whether Penn State complied with a federal law regarding public reporting of campus crimes.

Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber delivers against the Washington Nationals in the first inning Sunday in Cleveland.

Tribe’s Kluber blanks Nationals CLEVELAND (AP) — Corey Kluber proved a point Sunday. The Indians right-hander was the best pitcher at Progressive Field, outdueling Stephen Strasburg in Cleveland’s 2-0 win over the Washington Nationals. Kluber scattered seven hits over eight innings and struck out eight spoiling Strasburg’s return from the disabled list in the process. Kluber matched his longest outing in the big leagues and did not walk a batter as the Indians won the rubber match of the threegame interleague series. “Wow, that was really fun to watch,” Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. “He was so good all day. He completely kept his composure and executed his pitches. That was very impressive.” Kluber (5-4) worked his way out of three major jams in winning for the first time in 11 career starts at home. He exited

after throwing a careerhigh 114 pitches, allowing Vinnie Pestano to earn his first save with a scoreless ninth inning. “You just have to stay in the moment, so I take it pitch by pitch,” said Kluber, who came in 0-6 with a 4.80 ERA at Progressive Field. “I’m not thinking too far ahead. I’m not thinking if I can get a double play here or a strikeout there. Those things happen as a result of making good pitches.” Washington twice put runners at first and third with no outs against Kluber but failed to score either time. Three straight Nationals struck out to end the fourth, while Ryan Zimmerman struck out and Adam LaRoche hit into a double play in the sixth. Kluber also escaped a bases-loaded situation with no outs in the seventh, inducing a groundout from Roger Bernadina and a lineout double play from Jhonatan Solano.

■ CONTINUED FROM 13 that, we don’t worry about Johnny Cueto.” Cueto made his first start since a 6-0 win at Pittsburgh on May 31. He was placed on the disabled list on June 5 for the second time this season because of a strained muscle in his right shoulder. Alfredo Simon allowed two hits and had six strikeouts in three innings of relief for his first save of the season and second in two years with Cincinnati. Simon, who struck out all six batters he faced in a twoinning effort against Atlanta on May 6, struck out the last five batters he faced on Sunday. “My breaking ball and two-seamer were working really good,” Simon said. “It was good to give our bullpen a rest.” Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta gave up all five Reds runs four earned in 5 1-3 innings. The slumping Peralta (4-8) fell to 1-6 in his last seven starts. Carlos Gomez hit the first pitch he saw and Cueto’s seventh pitch into the left-field seats for his 12th homer of the season to give Milwaukee a 1-0 lead. “In the first inning, I had too many thoughts,” Cueto said through an interpreter. “I was thinking too much. Finally, it was over. When I got to the dugout, Cesar Izturis said, ‘Just do what

If it breaks again, we’ll fix it.’” “Johnny hung a slider to Gomez,” Baker said. “That was the only mistake he made.” The Reds tied it with an unearned run without benefit of a hit in the second.

Xavier Paul led off with a walk, and Jack Hannahan followed with a chopper to second baseman Rickie Weeks, whose throw bounced past first baseman Juan Francisco for an error. Hannahan was forced out, and Paul moved to third

on Ryan Hanigan’s grounder. Cueto drove in Paul, who broke for the plate on the pitch, with a suicidesqueeze bunt he said he didn’t see. “I thought it was going to hit me,” Cueto said. “I closed my eyes.”

facing the best of pitchers and can build your confidence back up.” Sunday could have worked in those respects. Nick Antonides was 2 for 3 with two doubles and three runs scored, Garrett Mitchell was 2 for 2 with three runs, Jimmy Pelphrey was 2 for 3 with a double and two RBIs and Dylan Cascaden doubled as Post 43 pounded out 13 hits and held a 5-0 lead after only three innings. Hunter Gleadell added a

massive two-run homer in the fifth inning. Luke Veldman got the win, pitching into the fifth inning. Trenton Wood and Dylan Schumaker finished off the game. Troy kicked off Saturday’s play with a dominant 9-3 win over Westerville South. Colton Nealeigh was 3 for 4 with two doubles and three RBIs, Nick Sanders was 4 for 4 with five stolen bases, Pelphrey was 2 for 3 with an RBI and Antonides dou-

bled. Reid Ferrell pitched 6 2-3 for the win, and Antonides got the final out. Waverly, however, held Post 43 to only five hits in a 2-1 victory. Troy’s only run came in the fifth on a bases-loaded walk, but a controversial double play ended that threat with no more damage. Troy hosts the Dayton Dodgers for a doubleheader Tuesday before traveling to Piqua Wednesday night for a rivalry game.

Post 43 ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 really good pitcher. So we’ve got some guys that aren’t used to seeing their batting averages at .350. Everyone’s kind of acting like they’re in a slump after just looking at their numbers. “But our on-base percentage is over .400, our team batting average is .320-.330. We’re not doing bad.
