CINCINNATI (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich declared a state of emergency Saturday as hundreds of thousands of residents faced a heat wave without power in the aftermath of severe storms that hit with strong winds that one utility compared to Hurricane Ike’s in 2008. Kasich said widespread outages

If Fourth of July cookouts leave you thirsty, either pick up a bottle of water or designate a driver during the holiday. The Miami County Sheriff's Office kicked off its Fourth of July enforcement blitz Friday with increased patrols throughout the county, with special attention to removing impaired drivers from county roads. According to Chief Deputy Dave Duchak, more than 60 hours of overtime will be used beginning Friday through July 5.

Celebrate the holiday The Fourth of July holiday annually celebrates the birth of our nation. Many communities in the area also come together each year to share in the celebration by hosting parades, events for children and adults alike, and the grand finale of all — fireworks.

High-flying summer fun

Camp teaches students about aviation


Young aviation enthusiasts and pilots-to-be learned the history of flight and constructed their own model aircraft at the WACO Aviation Summer Camp last week. Some even experienced their first flight — in a WACO biplane or Piper tri-pacer, no less. Learning center director Lisa Hokky said the week was dedicated to showing the transformation of flight, from kites Monday to rockets Friday. When the heat picked up later in the week, Hokky said campers still found ways to stay cool. “We started the day with bottle rockets. It’s good when it’s hot because it has water inside and it sprays out when it shoots through the air,” Hokky said Friday of the air-powered rocket. Children also made air-powered rockets out of paper, powered by a bicycle pump, and Estes rockets, with engines provided for the project. Mitchell Francis, a fifth grader at Troy Elementary, recounted the fun of making rockets and flying in a plane. “It was scary at first, but then I got used to it,” he said.

DENVER (AP) — Drought and wildfire fears are snuffing out some Fourth of July festivities this year. From Utah to Indiana, state and local governments are calling off annual fireworks displays out of fear that a stray rocket could ignite tinder-dry brush and trigger a wildfire. They’re also warning residents not to use fireworks, sparklers or Roman candles in backyards. The worry is especially acute in the West, where crews are already battling out-of-control blazes in several states. Parts of the Midwest are affected, too, after weeks without any significant rain. “We usually have a fireworks barge and a huge gala that attracts thousands of people,” said

Emergency • Continued from A1 and recovery efforts across the state. American Electric Power reported 500,000 of its customers across Ohio, including much of the capital of Columbus, and into West Virginia were without power. AEP said damaged poles and distribution circuits will slow restoration for days. It said winds rivaled those of Hurricane Ike’s remnants in 2008, topping 75 mph. That storm caused more than $1 billion in damage across Ohio and is considered the state’s

costliest natural disaster. State emergency officials were still assessing damages and injury reports Saturday. One death had been confirmed so far: a woman in eastern Ohio’s Muskingum County who was killed Friday night inside a barn hit by high winds. The storms hit much of state during Friday evening rush hour, caused multiple accidents and left several motorists trapped in their vehicles Friday evening by downed power lines.

Patrols • Continued from A1 the Sheriff’s Office received from the Ohio Traffic Safety Office, which administers the federal grant monies for the state. According to the Ohio Traffic Safety Office, the July 4 holiday period is one of the deadliest throughout the nation with alcohol playing a large factor in many of the crashes. In 2007, 34 percent of all drivers involved in traffic-relat-


ed crashes during the July 4 holiday period had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or high, which is the legal limit in all states. “It’s a busy time and we want everyone to enjoy the holiday in a safe manner, Duchak said. “If you plan on drinking, then you need to plan on designating a driver.” For more information, visit

• Continued from A1 Bill Appleby of the Grand Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, which represents the lakeside resort town about 90 miles northwest of Denver in the Rocky Mountains. The display is usually safe out on the water, but “we just can’t risk an errant ember.” It’s not uncommon for communities to delay or cancel fireworks shows because of drought conditions, but this year, the practice is more widespread. Last year, about a third of the country was in drought. Now nearly three-quarters is, according to the latest U.S. Drought Monitor map, a weekly analysis of dryness across the nation. The parched conditions have been aggravated by a dry, mild winter and abovenormal temperatures. Fires have charred more than 1.8 million acres this year in the U.S., and much of Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana have been under red-flag warnings for extreme fire danger.

In Colorado, where hundreds of homes have been destroyed by flames in the past month, firefighters have said they don’t have the time or resources to stand watch over public events. At least nine public fireworks displays have been called off. Montana hasn’t called for an end to big displays yet, but Gov. Brian Schweitzer is urging people not to set off their own fireworks and has left the door open to canceling public shows. Officials have also canceled displays or issued warnings restricting private fireworks in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Utah and Wisconsin. “Nobody wants to not have fireworks,” said Chris Magnuson of Albion, Ind., a town of about 2,300 that postponed its annual July 4 fireworks show to Labor Day weekend after county officials banned outdoor burning. “It’s just not safe enough.” The danger is real: Fireworks were blamed for more than 15,500 blazes and $36 million in property damage in 2010, accord-

ing to the National Fire Protection Association in Quincy, Mass. States have also clamped down on all kinds of outdoor fire hazards, including campfires, smoking and use of portable grills. Paul Forman, who owns Independence Fireworks and Forman Blasters Pyrotechnics in Peru, Ind., said he understands the safety concerns, but his business has been devastated. Four customers called off fireworks shows this week, and he anticipated more cancellations before the holiday. He said his business had dropped from about 50 customers a day to a total of 11. “This emergency order hit me like a two-by-four,” Forman said. Forman was going to deliver the fireworks in Bunker Hill, Ind., which had scheduled a show Saturday night following a parade, a picnic and the local Little League championships. Instead, Little League officials in the town of 900 about 60 miles north of Indianapolis canceled the show because of the fire risk.

Camp • Continued from A1 experience, are available for purchase online. “I’m asking my mom for one for Christmas,” said Francis with a smile. Kids grades four through six from 10 different schools throughout Miami County attended the camp. Volunteer Sophia Lucas, an incoming eighth grader

at Valley View Junior High, said she was pleased with the camp’s turnout. “This year there are five girls instead of two, and that’s nice to see,” Lucas commented. After being a camper herself, Lucas said she wanted to help out with the camp. One special time sticks out in her mind. “It’s seeing the kids’ faces when they do the

Congress may have averted a doubling of interest rates on millions of new federal student loans, but the fix is only for a year, leaving students on edge over whether they’ll face a similar increase next summer. “It’s scary,” said Faith Nebergall, a student at Indiana University whose loans currently total upward of $20,000. “And it’s unfair to kind of be kept in the dark as to how much money we owe.” Under the agreement, interest rates on new subsidized Stafford loans will remain at 3.4 percent. That’s estimated to save 7.4 million students about $1,000 each on the average loan, which is usually paid off over 10 or more years. In the short run, that means students can breathe a sigh of relief this summer. A year from now, however, those rates are set to rise to 6.8 percent. That automatic increase was approved by

Congress when lawmakers signed off on a series of scheduled rate reductions five years ago. “There are more struggling families and they need some assurances to feel OK about getting young people into and through college,” said Kati Haycock, president of The Education Trust. “Congress aggravates everybody, creates lots of anxiety out there, and essentially gives us a one-year solution.” About $1.2 billion will be saved by limiting federal subsidies of Stafford loans to six years for students pursuing a bachelor’s degree and three years for those completing an associate’s degree. Richard Vedder, director of the Center for College Affordability and Productivity and an economics professor at Ohio University, said that could have the positive effect of encouraging more students to complete their degree in a timely manner, while also allowing some flexibility for students

model planes, especially the balsa wood planes,” McClure said, referring to rubber-band-powered models made of lightweight wood. Hokky noted that many campers attended the camp through the generous donations of sponsors, which include American Legion Post 43, the Troy Rotary Club and Dick Graef of Troy.

who work and have families and need more time to finish. But he sees a negative impact down the road. Vedder argues that lower interest rates contribute to the desire to borrow money, which he says has the adverse effect of enabling schools to raise their tuition. Some students with poor academic records and for whom college might not be the best fit might be inclined to enroll anyway. That could aggravate problems in the labor market, where there are many unemployed and underemployed recent college graduates. “It makes political sense, but not economic sense,” Vedder said. The price of college tuition has skyrocketed in recent decades. Between 1982 and 2007, tuition and fees increased 439 percent while the median family income rose 147 percent, according to a report from the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education.

Edison trustees win awards Edison Community College staff has announced that three members of the college’s board of trustees were honored during the recent Ohio Association of Community Colleges Excellence Awards. James Thompson, trustee and vice chair of the college’s board of trustees, and Ed Curry, trustee and past chair of the board, were winners of the Richard N. Adams Educational Leadership Award. This award is named after Dr. Richard N. Adams, a past OACC chair and current elected state representative who served on the Edison Community College Board of Trustees for 18 years. Trustee Darryl D. Mehaffie was honored as the winner of the

PIQUA Maureen C. Grady Award for Special Achievement. The award is named for Grady, a former trustee with the Clark State Community College Board of Trustees, and recognizes extraordinary leadership and contributions of trustees. Mehaffie has been actively engaged in the affairs of the college and he discovered a solution to the challenges colleges face with post-secondary enrollment option funding. Mehaffie also was part of the presidential search committee that secured current Edison President Dr. Cris Valdez. “The honors that the OACC has presented to

our board members is indicative of the level of commitment that they have to champion the college,” Valdez said. “Edison is very fortunate to have a board that thoroughly supports the college and the communities it serves.” The awards were presented at the annual Excellence Awards Gala in Columbus in May. “These trustees and distinguished award winners exemplify the best in leadership for Ohio’s community colleges,” said Ron Abrams, president of the OACC in a press release. “They come from all walks of life and from all areas of the state and they honor Ohio’s community colleges by their leadership and participation.”

Papa rhino born in Cincinnati sires historic calf CINCINNATI (AP) — A Sumatran rhino born at the Cincinnati Zoo is playing a key role in the survival of his species. Andalas made history in 2001 as the first Sumatran rhino born in captivity in 112 years. Now he’s sired the first calf of his kind ever born in an Indonesian facility and the first born at an Asian facility in 124 years. The healthy and active calf was born June 23 with no complications. He weighed 60 to 70 pounds. Mother Ratu is a 12year-old Sumatran rhino at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Indonesia’s Kambas National Park.


The father of this newborn Sumatran rhino calf, right, with his mother, “Ratu,” at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Indonesia’s Way Kambas National Park, was born at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2001. Andalas was sent to the sanctuary for mating in 2007. Sumatran rhinos are seriously threatened by

loss of habitat and poaching. Fewer than 200 live in Indonesia and Malaysia today.

“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 China Daily, Beijing, on G20 policy: A slim victory for pro-Europe parties in the Greek election has saved the G20 leaders the trouble of making their two-day summit in Mexico a crisis management meeting. It was widely believed that a disorderly Greek exit from the euro would unleash global financial turmoil. That is why Chinese President Hu Jintao deemed Europe’s debt crisis “an issue of general concern” and urged the other G20 members to “encourage and support efforts made by Europe to resolve it and send a signal of confidence to the markets.” But the leaders of the world’s largest advanced and emerging economies shouldn’t breathe a sigh of relief simply because the worstcase scenario seems to have been avoided. The pro-Europe vote does not mean the problems of Greece will be over anytime soon, as Europe is yet to find a real solution for its debt crisis. With the risks of recession still rising, the G20 leaders should realize that the stakes are higher than ever as the latest crisis tests their determination and power to promote world economic stability, recovery and growth. In the wake of the 2008-09 global financial crisis the G20 leaders quickly coordinated global moves to support growth through large stimulus packages and aggressive interest-rate cuts by central banks. And their strong leadership helped reverse that global downturn. Unfortunately, almost four years later, global leaders have to brace themselves for a possible worldwide lending freeze similar to the one that happened when Lehman Brothers went under in September 2008. However, while recognizing the urgency for strong and swift actions to prevent the eurozone debt crisis from spilling over into the rest of the world, G20 leaders should also begin to focus their efforts on deeper reforms to reinvigorate growth. The Globe and Mail, Toronto, on gender equality: A recent survey of G20 countries found that the most developed economies also have the greatest gender equity. Canada tops the list, followed by Germany and the United Kingdom. The study reveals, yet again, the strong correlation between sustainable growth and development, on the one hand, and gender equity on the other. A country cannot progress until it includes women in the labor market in a meaningful way, removes barriers to their advancement and offers them the same opportunities for education and health care as men. Nowhere is this more true than in India, a vital democracy with an emerging economy which came dead last in the survey, conducted by Thomson Reuters Foundation in advance of the G20 summit… Prime Minister Manmohan Singh recently noted that India’s most underutilized resource is women, who compose only one-third of the labor force. A panel of 379 experts ranked the 20 nations on several factors, including women’s and girls’ access to state resources, participation in politics, quality of health, freedom from violence and freedom from slavery and sex trafficking. … Also lagging in the survey are Mexico, China, South Africa and Indonesia. Saudi Arabia was second-to-last. Despite being an oil-rich country with good access to education and health, the participation of women in political and economic life is severely curtailed. The best way to transform such a society is to convince government and the private sector of the business case for the advancement of women. Among other persuasive arguments is that educated and empowered women are better positioned to ensure that their own children — regardless of gender — are raised in a way that prepares them to succeed, helping to ensure the next generation is positioned to enhance productivity and competitiveness. Sustainable development isn’t possible when half a nation’s work force cannot fulfill its potential.

New show doesn’t reflect sad news reality It’s an important show, to be sure — especially given the crazy journalistic goings-on of the past week. But it’s probably not nearly as important as its creator thinks. Still, Aaron Sorkin’s newest effort, “The Newsroom,” attempts to highlight the various challenges and problems a cable news network faces in today’s world in putting out a product that not only maintains its journalistic integrity, but also entertains fickle viewers enough to please its home channel’s corporate heads with ratings — all while not ticking off its sponsors and the people it reports on. It all sounds very poignant, particularly given the painful amount of bias and lack of integrity that both Fox News and MSNBC show on a nightly basis (yes, both of them. They’re opposite sides of the same detrimental-to-the-world coin). But the problem is Sorkin’s view of “today’s world” is about 25-30 years in the past. The show is centered around Jeff Daniels’ character, Will McAvoy, who is referred to as the Jay Leno of anchors — he’s overly agreeable, wants everyone he interviews to like him and thus doesn’t go after them with the hard questions and lets them off the hook. It’s gotten him ratings, but it hasn’t made him proud of himself or happy with the job he does. But everything changes once he

And most of the time, they’re not even burdened by being exposed to all of the facts, because their cable news outlet of choice is only giving one side of a story — but we’re getting to that.

Take the Supreme Court’s decision on the Affordable Health Care Act on Thursday. Two of the three major cable news networks got their facts wrong in the rush to be first to report it — one backing a biased agenda, and the other the one that tries to stay in the middle and report facts. So here’s the problem: two out of the three major cable news networks screwed up arguably the biggest story so far this year — and no one cared. Because news consumers don’t see the news as news anymore, but rather as validation for their own opinions about the news — and depending on where they look, they can find that validation for any opinion they have. They view the news like ordering from Burger King — they want it their way. And that’s just not how it should work. Sorkin sees this and tries his best to make it seem like the world wants real journalism. But his idealistic world only exists in the past and in his own mind — and now on HBO Sunday nights.

Natural gas under graveyards raises moral, money questions COLUMBUS (AP) — Loved ones aren’t the only thing buried in the 122year-old Lowellville Cemetery in eastern Ohio. Deep underground, locked in ancient shale formations, are lucrative quantities of natural gas. Whether to drill for that gas is causing soul-searching as cemeteries — including veterans’ final resting places in Colorado and Mississippi — join parks, playgrounds, churches and residential backyards among the ranks of places targeted in the nation's shale drilling boom. Opponents say cemeteries are hallowed ground that shouldn’t be sullied by drilling activity they worry will be noisy, smelly and unsightly. Defenders say the drilling is so deep that it doesn’t disturb the cemetery and can generate revenue to enhance the roads and grounds. “Most people don’t like it,” said 70-year-old Marilee Pilkington, who lives down the road from the cemetery in rural Poland Township and whose father, brother, nephew and niece are all buried there. “I think it’s a dumb idea because I wouldn’t want anyone up there disturbing the dead, number one, and, number two, I don’t like the aspect of drilling,” she said. Township trustees received a proposal this year to lease cemetery mineral rights for $140,000, plus 16 percent of any royalties, for any oil and gas. Similar offers soon followed at two other area cemeteries. Longtime Trustee Mark Naples felt the same way as Pilkington when the issue arose — despite the fact $140,000 could cover the cemetery’s budget, minus road maintenance, for more than 20 years. “Our concern was we weren’t going to let anybody come in there and move anything” in the cemetery, he said. “They weren’t going to have my vote for that.” John Campbell, a lease agent for Campbell Development LLC, a company based in Fort Worth, Texas, declined a request for more information on his proposal, which was not expected to stir any graves. He said only that the offer was not accepted. It was just more fuel for drilling opponents in the Youngstown area, already


Trustees of the cemetery in Lowellville received a proposal earlier this year to lease cemetery mineral rights for $140,000 plus a percentage of any royalties for any oil and gas, raising a tricky question: Are cemeteries a proper place for drilling? rocked by a series of earthquakes that have been tied to deep-well injection of wastewater from hydraulic fracturing and other drilling activities. They're now fighting for a citywide drilling ban. Concerns are driven largely by a lack of information, said John Stephenson, president of the Texas Cemeteries Association. “A lot of it just has to do with the way that it’s presented,” he said. “You’re hundreds of feet below the ground, and it’s not disturbing any graves.” It’s possible to reach oil and gas deposits now from drilling rigs placed sometimes miles away because of advances in what’s called horizontal drilling. The technology has made vast new shale energy deposits available under the Northeast, Texas and elsewhere. Stephenson leased mineral rights under two of his cemeteries within the past three years, he said. Each is about a century old and populated with 75,000 graves. Revenue from the leases — he wouldn't say how much — has allowed him to pave roads, repair fences and make other improvements during economic hard times. The Catholic Cemeteries Association in Pittsburgh also saw benefits to leasing mineral rights under 11 of its cemeteries comprising more than 1,200 acres. The five-year lease, signed in 2008, came to light through news reports in 2010. David Shields, a city

councilman at the time, was able to push through a citywide drilling ban amid the outrage stirred up by the debate. “Everybody (in the press) liked the ghoulish aspects of drilling on sacred ground and disturbing great-Grandma’s body and all that,” Shields said. “I’d say there were many other issues of greater immediate concern, but that’s what the hook to it was.” In Poland Township, officials were full of questions: Could they legally sell the mineral rights to a public cemetery? What claim would families with burial plots have to the royalties? “You know what it is, it’s emotional,” Poland Township Administrator Jim Scharville said. “A lot of people don’t want any type of drilling. There’s something about disturbing the sanctuary of a cemetery. We’re not talking about dinosaurs now and creatures that roamed the earth millions of years ago. We’re talking about loved ones who have died, people we knew.” Plot owners have no legal claim to the mineral rights at a cemetery, Stephenson said. Their agreements are for an indefinite rental of sorts at the surface level — and a promise the site will be maintained, he said. The Ohio township was also worried about not acting, Scharville said, out of fear the oil and gas could be claimed through mandatory pooling and they would wind up with nothing. Under such laws, well oper-

ators can seek underground access to properties without the owner's permission through a state review board. The inability to control mineral rights has also become a concern in Colorado, where the National Cemetery Association, which operates veterans’ cemeteries, is working to select a site for a new cemetery. One of four prospective sites, in Fountain, could have been open to drilling because the mineral rights weren’t free and clear, said Glenn Madderom, the agency’s chief of cemetery development and improvement service. That presented a disincentive, even though its owners plan to donate the land at no cost to the government. “Certainly you don’t want oil drilling operations occurring on a property where it could be disruptive to the services or to the visitors, to the serenity or the peace of the site,” Madderom said. “A national cemetery, we call it a national shrine. It’s a beautiful, well-maintained property that honors the veterans and their families, and so oil drilling operations on that site are just not appropriate.” The administration also successfully fought to move drilling operations to the other side of a forest abutting the veterans’ cemetery in Natchez, Miss., to preserve the mood, he said. Such sites are all eventually listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Ohio’s Freedom Center gets financial help force the center to close by the end of 2012 if the money wasn't found. The Freedom Center, which opened in 2004, also said that while attendance was up slightly in 2011 over the previous year, it has declined since a 2005 peak. Museum Center officials have said the partnership offers financial strength and new opportunities for both organizations. The Museum Center houses a history museum, a children's museum and a natural history and science museum. The Freedom Center, which is now its fourth wholly owned subsidiary, focuses on the 19th century Underground Railroad for escaping slaves and on freedom throughout the world. The Freedom Center’s board changed its bylaws earlier this year to allow

Ohio awards tax credits COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio has awarded $35.8 million in tax credits to owners planning to rehabilitate 44 historic buildings throughout the state. The Ohio Department of Development recently announced the tax credits. They will go to 18 owners

in 10 Ohio communities including Toledo, Columbus, Cincinnati and Dayton. Planned private investments in the projects total nearly $238 million. State officials say the credits represent about 25 percent of estimated project costs.

for the merged operations, which will enable reduced administrative expenses in areas including human resources and finance, Pierce said. The Freedom Center will remain responsible for its fundraising, programming and efforts to enhance its image. Pierce said both organizations will retain their separate brands and missions and will remain separate legal entities for the purpose of charitable gifts and revenue. “This collaboration also gives a level of operating efficiency that will allow both organizations to better deliver their education missions,” Pierce said. Much of the three-year $1.8 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s American Healing program, also announced last week, will be used to increase awareness and

understanding about the history of racial oppression in America and to create interactive and multimedia education programs. About $400,000 of the grant will be applied to the Freedom Center’s endowment fund, officials said. A Kellogg Foundation official said the Freedom Center plays a significant role of “community-based healing” by sharing stories of past racial trauma. “Storytelling is essential to healing the wounds of the past,” Gail Christopher, vice president of program strategy for the foundation, said in a release announcing the grant. Kim Robinson, the Freedom Center’s chief executive officer, has said the grant reinforces the center as a “source of inspiration for multicultural cooperation.”

Falls to Ferrer at Wimbledon WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Andy Roddick put his hand to his mouth and blew a kiss to the crowd as he walked off Centre Court to generous applause after a third-round loss at Wimbledon on Saturday. If that gesture was meant to signify a farewell after losing 26, 7-6 (8), 6-4, 6-3 to No. 7-seeded David Ferrer of Spain, Roddick wasn't saying. Indeed, the 29-year-old American said he hasn't yet made a decision

Indians hammer Orioles

"Pitching's the key, and the last couple days we've been getting some great pitching," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "It's especially good going against a hot club." San Francisco managed only Brandon Crawford's thirdinning double before pinch-hitter Brandon Belt tripled in the ninth and scored on Gregor Blanco's grounder. "It's been rough the last two nights," Blanco said. Home run king Barry Bonds was among the sellout crowd of 42,135 a day ahead of the club's 10-year reunion celebration for the 2002 World Series runnersup.

BALTIMORE (AP) — ShinSoo Choo singled on the first pitch of the game, and the Cleveland Indians never let up in setting a season high for hits in a second straight game. This time, they got a win for their effort. Choo went 4 for 5 with a homer, scored four runs and collected three RBIs to lead the Indians past the Baltimore Orioles 11-5 Saturday. Shelley Duncan also homered for the Indians, whose 19 hits eclipsed their previous high of 16, set Friday night in a 9-8 loss at Camden Yards. Jose Lopez had five hits and drove in three runs for the Indians, No. 2 hitter Asdrubal Cabrera had three hits and two RBIs, and Lou Marson had four hits, scored three runs and finished a homer short of the cycle. The offensive outburst was a welcome change of pace, and the Indians hope to ride the wave of momentum back into first place in the AL Central. "We don't do it for a while," Lopez said. "Especially Choo and a couple of guys who got three, two hits. Maybe we start today and (continue) tomorrow and a week before the All-Star break." The Indians stranded 16 runners and went 7 for 22 with runners in scoring position — and it hardly mattered. "We swung the bat well today, especially the top two guys in our lineup. They set the table the whole day," manager Manny Acta said. "Choo had a great day and Cabby had some huge at-bats, too. Between Lopez and the guys back there, they just cleaned them up. It was important to get all those runs because we haven't been shutting teams down as effectively of late."

Cincinnati Reds catcher Ryan Hanigan, left, and pitcher Mat Latos celebrate Latos’ completegame win 2-1 against the San Francisco Giants in a baseball game Saturday in San Francisco.

Difference maker Latos gets 2nd straight complete game in win SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Mat Latos always seems to find a groove at AT&T Park, dating to his days as a Giants nemesis with the San Diego Padres the past three seasons. He still has the touch with his new team. Latos pitched a two-hitter to win his career-best seventh straight decision, beating San Francisco for the second time in as many outings this season to lead the Cincinnati Reds to a 21 victory Saturday. "I think it has to do with me just being comfortable here," said Latos, who lowered his ERA in San Francisco's waterfront ballpark to 1.67. "I pitched here for three years. Just familiar with the ballpark. Who knows? I pitched a pretty good game today. I kept the ball down and got quick outs." Latos (7-2) struck out seven

and didn't walk a batter for the fourth time in his 115-pitch gem and second straight complete game. The hard-throwing righthander tossed seven scoreless innings against the Giants on April 24. He threw the first back-to-back complete games for the Reds since Aaron Harang in September 2006. Just when San Francisco's pitching staff looked unstoppable, the Reds have thrown two dazzlers of their own. Latos followed Mike Leake's nine-hitter Friday for the Reds' first consecutive complete games since Johnny Cueto and Homer Bailey on May 11-12, 2010, against the Pirates. Miguel Cairo added an RBI single after replacing the injured Joey Votto as the Reds won back-to-back road games following a four-game skid away from Cincinnati.

NFL rookies warned to avoid trouble BEREA (AP) — His gray Tshirt soaked with sweat, Justin Blackmon sat at a picnic table following lunch and waited to make a final catch for Brandon Weeden, his former Oklahoma State teammate now with the Browns. The trigger man for one of college football's most dynamic pass-and-catch combinations, Weeden made a handoff, sliding an ice cream sandwich in front of Blackmon, who leaned back and smiled. On a muggy Friday morning, Blackmon, Weeden and other first-year AFC players participated in a youth football clinic as part of the NFL's weeklong

rookie symposium, a comprehensive orientation program to ease their transition into professional life. The chance to run around with kids was a welcomed break for the players, who have spent the past few days inside conference rooms listening to former players like Terrell Owens and Adam Jones warn them about controlling their finances, guarding their privacy and not making mistakes in their personal lives. For Blackmon, it's more about not making another one. Now with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Blackmon was arrested earlier this month on a

drunken driving charge in Stillwater, Okla. It was his second alcohol-related offense in three years and an early misstep he regrets and hopes to never repeat. The first-round draft pick's blood alcohol content was allegedly three times over the legal limit. He pleaded not guilty to a DUI misdemeanor and his next court date is July 24, three days before the Jaguars open training camp. There's nothing he can do about it now other than move forward and repair his tarnished image. "I'm past it," said Blackmon, who faces a possible suspen-

sion. "My team is behind me and that's all that really matters to me." Blackmon's criminal situation, and other legal matters involving young players, is one of the main reasons the league has been gathering its rookies for the past 15 summers to educate them on how a poor decision can adversely affect their careers. This week, the players have heard testimony from explayers who have gone bankrupt, had marriages crumble and battled addictions. They've been told there is an acceptable standard and they ■ See ROOKIES on A7

Cavaliers make qualifying offer to Alonzo Gee

Van Garderen claims white jersey at Tour de France LIEGE, Belgium (AP) — Tejay van Garderen lived up to his pre-race billing as one of American cycling's top young talents with an explosive performance on the streets of Liege in the Tour de France's opening time trial. 23-year-old The Montana native finished Saturday's 4-mile prologue in fourth place, just 10 seconds behind stage winner and four-time world champion Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland. That was good enough to net van Garderen the white jersey, worn by the highest placed rider under the age of 25. It follows up the polka-dotted climber's jersey that van Garderen wore for one stage last year in his first Tour de France. Van Garderen, who rides for the BMC Racing of defending team Tour de France champion Cadel Evans, couldn't stop smiling after the race. "I've got chills, I can't wait to get up there and get it," van Garderen said just before climbing the podium, where he was awarded the race's first white jersey. Van Garderen is the youngest of the eight US riders competing in this year's Tour de France, and the one who exemplifies what cycling insiders are calling the most promising generation of Americans to ever challenge the sport's best on the roads of Europe.

Tejay van Garderen of the U.S. corners a roundabout in the prologue of the Tour de France cycling race, an individual time trial over 6,4 kilometers (4 miles) with start and finish on Saturday in Liege, Belgium. and Saturday's performance confirms expectations that he's a top contender to win the same honor when the Tour finishes in Paris on July 22. But before then there are 2,168 miles still to go, and van Garderen says keeping the jersey until then is the last of his concerns. "We've come here with one goal, that's to get Cadel on the top step of the podium in Paris," van Garderen said. "But anything can happen." The last American to win the white jersey was

Andy Hampsten in 1986. The only other American to win the honor was Greg Lemond in 1984, two years before he won the first of his three yellow jerseys. It also puts van Garderen in the exclusive company of previous white jersey winners Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck, each of whom went on to win the coveted yellow jersey. Van Garderen will be wearing the distinctive jersey Sunday when the race heads out of Liege on the first road stage, a 123-mile

ride through the hilly region of southern known as Belgium Wallonia. The young American says he hopes that his good performance Saturday "means that I'm going to be a strong supporter to Cadel come later in the Tour." A strong time-trialist, van Garderen is also a very good climber who will be expected to put his own ambitions aside to help pace Evans up the difficult mountain stages in the Alps and Pyrenees later in the race.

links between footballrelated head trauma and permanent brain injuries and failed to take appropriate action. Attorneys for former players such as Jim McMahon and Art Monk accuse the NFL of negligence and intentional misconduct in its response to the headaches, dizziness and dementia that their clients have reported, even after forming the Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Committee to study the issue in 1994. The league has consistently and strongly denied the claims. "The NFL took a page right out of the tobacco industry playbook and engaged in a campaign of fraud and deception, ignoring the risks of traumatic brain injuries in football and deliberately spreading false information to its players," said Sol Weiss, co-lead counsel for the plaintiffs. The NFL has said it has spent more than a billion dollars on pension and disability benefits for retired players in a partnership with the NFL Players Association. League officials argue player safety has long been a priority, and it makes health programs available to current and former players, including neurological evaluations. "Any allegation that the NFL intentionally sought to mislead players or otherwise conceal information from players concerning the risks, treatment or management of concussions is entirely without merit," the league said in a statement. According to an

Associated Press review of 95 lawsuits filed through last Monday, 2,425 players are now plaintiffs in concussion-related complaints against the NFL. The total number of plaintiffs in those cases is 3,762, which includes players, spouses and other relatives or representatives. Some of the plaintiffs are named in more than one complaint, but the AP count does not include duplicated names in the total. Many of the suits were recently consolidated before a federal judge in Philadelphia, and seek medical care. League officials have heard the tobacco-concussion comparisons before. Three years ago, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell appeared before Congress regarding concussions and didn't acknowledge a connection between head injuries suffered on the field and later brain injuries. Several members of Congress were frustrated with Goodell's testimony, including Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., who said the NFL's response to the issue reminded her of tobacco companies saying there weren't ill health effects due to smoking but later had to admit there was. These lawsuits "could have been avoided if the NFL had taken proactive steps to address the issue — pardon the pun — head on rather than obscuring it," Sanchez recently told the AP. "Common decency dictates that the league has a responsibility to these players."

■ CONTINUED FROM A6 must rise to meet it. It's been an eye-opener for many. "What I've gotten out of it is to use the resources that the NFL has for you," Blackmon said. "There are a lot of people out there that are there to help you get through the transition into the NFL, and just use them instead of just trying to do it yourself." Detroit defensive Nick Fairley is heeding that advice. A first-round draft pick from Auburn in 2011, Fairley has been arrested twice in recent months for charges ranging from reckless driving to marijuana possession to driving under the influence and attempting to elude police in Alabama. On Thursday, Fairley pleaded not guilty to several charges through his attorney. Fairley wasn't in court because he was with this year's rookie class at the

Bertram Inn and Conference Center in Aurora, Ohio — where the NFL hopes to keep the symposium because of its proximity to the nearby Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. Fairley asked to attend this year's event after last year's symposium was cancelled because of the labor lockout. Fairley was not available for interviews. For the 28-year-old Weeden, who played minor league baseball in the New York Yankees' organization before pursuing his football career. the week has been a good refresher course in common sense and post-football planning. Weeden said he and other rookies have been told this week that statistics show 78 percent of players will leave the game with no money. He's already been through enough experiences that he could teach a seminar to his younger peers.

Concussion lawsuits are next big litigation LOS ANGELES (AP) — Smokers and pro football players have something in common: They engage in risky behavior that can be potentially harmful to their health over time. And to hear some lawyers tell it, the National Football League is the equivalent of Big Tobacco. The recent wave of lawsuits filed on behalf of retired players uses similar arguments to those made by attorneys representing smokers who sued tobacco companies more than 15 years ago — in this case, that the National Football League knew repeated concussions could lead to brain damage and yet hid the information. More than 2,400 retired players are now plaintiffs, looking for the kind of success smokers had against the tobacco companies. The result then was a landmark, $206-billion settlement shared among 46 states. But the ex-players face a huge challenge as they take on a multibillion dollar industry that is the most popular sport in the United States. "I don't think it's the same good versus evil you saw in the tobacco litigation, but there are some potential similarities," said Gabriel Feldman, director of the sports law program at Tulane University. "It's a lot grayer on both sides. That could change if some smoking guns are found during discovery if the case gets that far." At issue is whether the NFL knew if there were

Also, the Cavs extended a $1 million qualifying offer to forward Luke Harangody. The team has not yet decided whether to make an offer to backup center Semih Erden.

Braves overcome heat, beat Nationals ATLANTA (AP) — Mike Minor won for just the second time in 12 starts and the Atlanta Braves overcame 104degree heat to beat Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals 7-5 on Saturday. Strasburg (9-3) left after just three innings because of weather-related issues. He didn't return to begin the fourth, tying for the shortest outing of his 33-start career. Braves officials reported no major health problems among the announced crowd of 26,491. The team credited eight free water stations at Turner Field with helping fans cool off. Strasburg allowed two hits, three runs and four walks, and struck out four to reach 122, most in the majors. He took extra time between pitches and walked slowly between innings. He hit an RBI single and left trailing 3-2 after the Braves' threerun third.

LOUIS — Pedro Alvarez hit a grand slam in the first inning off suddenly scuffling 10-game winner Lance Lynn and Andrew McCutchen had two hits before leaving with a sore left wrist, helping the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals for their fourth victory in a row. Jeff Karstens (1-2) thrived in sweltering heat, allowing four hits with seven strikeouts in seven strong innings, as Pittsburgh matched its longest winning streak of the year. It was 99 degrees for the first pitch and the temperature spiked to 103 later in the game.

In the first three games of this four-game series, Choo is 8 for 13 with two home runs, six RBIs and seven runs scored. He reached base five times in this one, including a walk. "I think the big thing (is) I feel comfortable, comfortable in the batter's box," he said. "I have confidence. I'm not changing anything." Chris Davis homered for the Orioles, who have lost eight of 11. During the game, Baltimore announced the acquisition of slugger Jim Thome from Philadelphia for two minor leaguers. Thome, who has 609 career homers, went 6 for 13 with four RBIs in a three-game series against Baltimore earlier this season. "I've heard nothing but great things about his character and personality," Davis said. "He's a class act. So we're going to welcome him with open arms, and hopefully he can swing it for us like he can against us." The Indians took an 84 lead with a three-run fifth. Marson tripled and scored on a two-out single by Choo, who came home on a double by Cabrera. Lopez capped the uprising with an RBI single. Duncan led off the sixth with his fifth home run, and Choo hit an RBI single for a six-run cushion. Orioles starter Dana Eveland (0-1) gave up five runs in 3 2-3 innings. He was followed by Tommy Hunter, who yielded five runs and eight hits in 1 2-3 innings. Cleveland took a 1-0

COLUMBUS (AP) — Jordan Hall, No. 1 on Ohio State's depth chart at running back, will be out for about 10 weeks after undergoing surgery on Friday for a cut on the bottom of his right foot. Hall, with 817 career rushing yards, is a senior who first-year coach Urban Meyer had singled out as one of the team's top potential playmakers. Hall was walking in

grass outside his residence in Columbus when he cut his foot. Meyer said Hall will be in a non-weight bearing cast for six weeks before rehabbing the injury for at least a month. The Buckeyes open fall camp in about five weeks. Junior Carlos Hyde, sophomore Rod Smith and true freshman Bri'onte Dunn are other options at the position.

Eveland avoided further damage by working out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam. Choo homered in the second to make it 2-0. Seven of his eight homers have been solo shots. After Baltimore got a third-inning run on a sacrifice fly by Brian

Cabrera hit an RBI single, Jason Kipnis chased Eveland with a run-scoring groundout and Lopez drove in a run with a single off the glove of shortstop J.J. Hardy.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Emails show Penn State's former president Graham Spanier agreed not to take allegations of sex abuse against ex-assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky to authorities but worried university officials would be "vulnerable" for failing to report it, a news organization has reported. The emails followed a graduate assistant's 2001 report he saw Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy in the team locker room shower, CNN reported. The existence of the emails was first reported earlier this month by NBC. The emails show athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz intended to report the allegation, then reconsidered. Spanier responded that he was "supportive" of their plan, but he worried they might "become vulnerable for not having reported it." Sandusky was convicted this month of 45 counts of

sexually abusing 10 boys. The scandal led to the ouster of Spanier and revered coach Joe Paterno and charges against Curley and Schultz, who are accused of perjury for their grand jury testimony and failing to properly report suspected child abuse. Spanier hasn't been charged. The timing of their change in plans — coming after Curley's discussion with Paterno — raises questions about whether the coach was more involved than he said in the decision. The CNN report cites an email from Schultz to Curley on Feb. 26, 2001, 16 days after graduate assistant Mike McQueary told veteran coach Joe Paterno about the shower assault. Schultz suggests bringing the allegation to the attention of Sandusky, Sandusky's charity and the Department of Welfare, which investigates suspected child abuse, according to the report.

He missed a chance to win consecutive starts for just the second time this year. "We ran into another well-pitched game," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "We didn't do too much."

Zito was coming off seven scoreless innings in last Monday's shutout against the Dodgers that began a franchise-best string of four in a row until Matt Cain lost 5-1 Friday night, in his first home outing since his June 13 perfect game. Zito allowed Brandon Phillips' one-out single in the fourth, then retired Jay Bruce on a groundout

after he wandered way off the bag. Cairo replaced Votto in the bottom of the fifth. The Reds said Votto was removed as a precaution as he nurses inflammation in his left knee. Cincinnati is 7-1 in Latos' past eight starts. San Francisco third baseman Pablo Sandoval was slow getting up after making a diving belly flop

catch on Stubbs' seventhinning bunt. Manager Bruce Bochy and athletic trainer Dave Groeschner came out to check on him and Sandoval stayed in the game. Brad Penny made his season debut for the Giants in the seventh. Signed to a minor league deal May 18, he was called up Friday.

Blake, Bolt both reach 200 finals

De Jonge in lead

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — An early wake-up call, a quick run and a nap. Could've been a typical Saturday morning for almost anyone in Jamaica, though for Yohan Blake and Usain Bolt, this was anything but typical. Less than 12 hours after Blake stunned the world-record holder in the final of the 100 meters at Jamaican Olympic trials, the sprinters returned to National Stadium for a 9 a.m. start for 200-meter qualifying heats. Both made it through their rounds easily — two of the world's fastest men huffing and puffing in near silence, in front of an audience of about 200 fans and stadium workers, on a breezy morning

that felt as surreal as the previous night was electric. Bolt won his heat in 21.21 seconds into a headwind. Rushing out of the stadium, he fielded one question: Are you going back to bed? "Of course, man," he said. Blake could have walked through his race because there were only four runners and all four were guaranteed to make it through. He ran, but at a leisurely pace — 21.43 seconds, also into the breeze. He said he hadn't yet seen the Saturday morning headlines in the Kingston newspapers, proclaiming his upset in big, boldface type. Blake ran a personalbest 9.75 seconds to beat Bolt by .11 on Friday

night, an equationchanging upset that was still reverberating around Kingston and the world the next morning. Blake is the defending world champion, but that victory last year came after Bolt was disqualified for a false start. This was their first race against each other since then. Was Blake surprised that everyone was surprised? "I think everybody was, but I was not," he said. Did he see it coming? "Yeah. What can I say?" Bolt holds the world record in the 200 at 19.19 seconds, but Blake has the second-best time ever recorded at 19.26. Many people thought the 200

But that math

changed on a stunner of an evening in Kingston, an evening that resets the story line for their anticipated rematch in the 100, five weeks from now at the Olympics in London.

An overnight wind storm toppled trees, leading tournament officials to keep spectators and all but essential volunteers off the course. Except for Woods, most players had no one watching.

Evans’ comeback ends Phelps, Lochte face off again in 100 butterfly


Spain’s Cesc Fabregas, right, controls a ball during a training session on Saturday ahead of today’s Euro 2012 soccer championship final between Spain and Italy in Kiev, Ukraine.

Spain promises to attack Italy in Euro final KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Spain will play attacking football against Italy in the E u r o p e a n Championship final. The defending champions just hope Italy returns the favor. Both teams go into today's final at the Olympic Stadium promising to maintain the tactics that have brought them here. Spain coach Vicente del Bosque promised an attacking lineup comprised of three forwards, which did little to clear up whether Spain will use its midfield-heavy attack or field a single striker. He also brushed off criticism that Spain's attack lacks the cutting edge it had during the team's Euro 2008 and 2010 World Cup triumphs. "We have more of an obligation to attack than to defend because we have players with capabilities to do so," Del Bosque said on Saturday. "Football moves forward and there has been a change of players in the team,

but the nucleus remains the same. We're playing the same way we always have." Cesc Fabregas and Fernando Torres have shared the most of the responsibility for Spain's attack. David Silva has looked fatigue and there is speculation he could make way for Pedro Rodriguez, who has been impressive in his two appearances off the bench. Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has meanwhile promised to maintain Italy's current style, which has not only helped it to the final but has come as a surprise compared to its normally defensive ways. "A team that has (Andrea) Pirlo, (Claudio) Marchisio and (Riccardo) Montolivo is a team that wants to play football, there's no doubt," Del Bosque said. "It's an open final because we've both followed parallel styles to get here. Our styles of play have been very similar, I don't see much of a difference."

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Janet Evans finished 53rd out of 65 swimmers in the 800-meter freestyle preliminaries at the U.S. trials on Saturday, ending the former Olympic champion's comeback at age 40 with a smile on her face. Evans completed the 16lap race in 9 minutes, 1.59 seconds, placing her eighth out of 10 swimmers in her heat won by Jamie Bohunicky, a 21-year-old who swam 8:48.42. Evans' time was far off her seed time of 8:46.89. "I wish I had swam faster, but I think I will be totally grateful," she said. "Grateful for the fact that I was able to do it and my body held up and people who supported me. I'll be happy I did it instead of sitting on my couch wondering 'what if.'" Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte were back in the pool for the 100 butterfly prelims. Phelps qualified fastest and Lochte was sixth in moving on to the semifinals. Missy Franklin qualified fastest in the 200 back, keeping the 17-year-old from Colorado on track to compete in four individual events and possibly all three relays in London. She powered to the wall in 2:08.35. Evans climbed out of the pool for the last time to cheers from the sellout crowd that knew her comeback was over. She smiled and gave a small wave before disappearing below the deck. She also didn't advance out of the 400 free prelims on Tuesday, when she finished 80th among 113 swimmers. "Yes, this is definitely it," she said. "I just signed my retirement papers. First thing I did." The queen of distance swimming was a three-time Olympian who won the 800 free at the 1988 and '92 Olympics, and was undefeated in the grueling event for eight years during her stellar career. She retired after the 1996 Games, eventually marrying and having two children. "I'm just looking forward

to sitting in the stands finally," said Evans, who plans to be in London during the games. "I don't have to go warm up." She attempted a comeback as a way to challenge herself. "It became about more than making the Olympic team," she said. "It became about doing something for myself and inspiring others to have the courage to go do something they're scared of doing or is a little bit outside their comfort zone." Evans considered her comeback a success, having enjoyed sharing it with her young daughter and son and her parents, who were all in Omaha. "It's just so fun to be back. It makes me feel young," she said. "I'm out there on that pool deck with these kids. Sometime I wonder if people are going to see all the wrinkles and see that I am not the same age as all these kids out here." Evans' 2-year-old son, Jake, slept through her 400 free prelim, while 5-year-old Sydney asked her mother if she had won. "I said, 'No, I didn't win,'" Evans replied. "She said, 'OK, I still love you.' Your

kids will love you no matter what." Kate Ziegler, who didn't make the 800 free final in Beijing, was the top qualifier for Sunday's final in 8:27.61. Katie Ledecky, a 15-year-old from Bethesda, Md., was second at 8:27.91. Chloe Sutton, who made the Beijing Olympics as an open-water swimmer, was fourth. Like Evans, the race also marked the end of trials for two-time Olympian Katie Hoff, who won't be going to London. She finished 13th — five spots out of the final — in 8:39.03. The 22-year-old, who won five events at the trials four years ago, finished 20th in the 200 free prelims, missing a spot in the semifinals by 0.32 seconds. She didn't advance out of the 400 free prelims after feeling sick from a stomach virus. "I'm proud of myself for doing it," said Hoff, who had been unsure on Friday whether she would scratch the event. "Obviously, I wanted to be better, but I took it out and tried to hold on and couldn't. Somebody told me my career is about not rolling over in adversity. I don't want to be that girl. I gave it my best shot and that's really all I can do."

Phelps, the Olympic champion and world record holder in the 100 fly, was timed in 51.80 seconds on his 27th birthday. "After you get past 25, there's no point in even counting anymore," he said. Phelps swam with a purpose, aiming to get into the second evening semifinal to ensure he would have an extra four minutes to cool down after swimming in the final of the 200 IM 32 minutes earlier. "The extra time is always good," he said, adding that he liked his prelim time in the fly. "It's probably one of my fastest morning swims ever. It felt good. The first 50 felt fairly controlled. I just wanted to try to have a good second 50." Tyler McGill, bronze medalist in the 100 fly at last year's world championships, was second at 51.87. Davis Tarwater was third at 52.13. Lochte clocked 52.21 to start another busy day for him. He will swim the 200 backstroke final in the evening and then return 30 minutes later for the 200 IM final in his third and last showdown with Phelps. They are each 1-for-1 in matchups at trials.

slapped a forehand into the top of the net. On the second, at 8-7, Ferrer hit an overhead winner. "I thought I played well. I had one really good look at a forehand on a set point in the second set; just clipped the tape," Roddick said. "That was a big, big turning point there." A run of 13 consecutive tiebreaker points won by the man serving ended on the set's last point, when Roddick missed another forehand. Roddick became particularly popular around these parts after he lost to

Roger Federer 16-14 in the fifth set of the 2009 Wimbledon final. That was the third title match at the All England Club for Roddick, and third where he had to face Federer. Roddick also lost a U.S. Open final to Federer. "I think he'll go down as one of the best grasscourt players to ever play. Certainly could be one of the best grass-court players to never win Wimbledon," said 10thseeded Mardy Fish, a pal of Roddick's dating to when they were in high school.

"I'm assuming he'll come back, but if he doesn't, you know, (he'd be) one of the best to never win Wimbledon, for sure," added Fish, who reached the fourth round with a victory Saturday. "I know that he wanted it badly." Ferrer, a semifinalist at the French Open, got to the round of 16 at the All England Club for the third consecutive year and fourth time overall. He's never made it to the quarterfinals. He faces No. 9 Juan Martin del Potro next. And what's next for Roddick? In the short-

term, he'll fly back to the U.S. and play in a tournament at Atlanta, before returning to the All England Club for the London Olympics. Longer term? We'll have to wait and see how many more victories he'll add to the 603 so far. "I'm proud that I've been very dedicated to my craft. There aren't many days when I go to sleep wondering if I could have done more as far as preparation or work or effort," Roddick said. "So that makes it easier to walk off the court and be proud."

four times by Ferrer, who is No. 5 in the ATP rankings. Roddick had been on a seven-match winning streak, including a title on grass as a wild card at Eastbourne a week ago. Prior to that run, though, it had been a difficult season for Roddick, who was hampered by a right hamstring injury that forced him to stop playing in the second round of the Australian Open. He lost in the first round at the French Open after skipping clay-court events in Madrid and

"So you tell me I win seven straight and have a chance to move on against a guy that is 5 in the world and played a pretty good match — that's some progress in a short period of time."

Iconic Atari turns 40, tries to stay relevant NEW YORK (AP) — A scruffy, young Steve Jobs worked at Atari before he founded Apple. “Pong,” one of the world’s first video games, was born there, as was “Centipede,” a classic from the era of quarter-guzzling arcade machines. “Call of Duty” creator Activision was started by four of Atari”s former game developers. The iconic video game company turns 40 years old this week, much slimmer these days as it tries to stay relevant in the age of “Angry Birds” and “Words With Friends.” But Atari’s influence on today’s video games is pervasive. Although it wasn’t the first company to make video games, Atari was the first to make a lasting impression on an entire generation. At arcades — or at video game bars such as Barcade in the trendy Williamsburg section of Brooklyn — nostalgic patrons still gather around such Atari classics as “Asteroids,” “Joust” and “Centipede.” The Atari 2600, launched in 1977, was the first video game console in millions of homes, long before the Nintendo

desktops in the 1980s. “It makes me think that I am getting really old,” says Nolan Bushnell, the co-founder of Atari. “I’m 69, which means I was 29 when I founded Atari. It seems really young in retrospect.” It doesn’t take much effort these days to see 20-something entrepreneurs in technology. Mark Zuckerberg was just 19 when he started Facebook in his Harvard dorm room. But back in the early ’70s, Bushnell said, “no one in their 20s started companies. In some ways it paved the way for Apple, Microsoft and those guys.” “We dominated not because of our manufacturing and marketing prowess but because of creativity,” Bushnell says. “The lasting legacy: That creativity is a real weapon. And in some ways Apple has shown that as well.” Jobs was just 19 when Atari hired him as a technician, making $5 an hour. He worked the night shift because many of his co-workers didn’t get along with him and didn’t appreciate his refusal to wear deodorant, according to Walter Isaacson’s recent biography of the late Apple chief executive. He wasn’t there for long — he

left the company in 1974 to travel to India and co-founded Apple two years later, in 1976. Dona Bailey, one of the creators of “Centipede,” recalls a notebook that Atari had with maybe 30 ideas for games in it. “Most of them were laser games,” says Bailey, who was the only female programmer in Atari’s arcade division when she was hired in 1980 and when she left in 1982. “I wasn’t really interested in war, or lasering anything, or violence.” The only ideas in the notebook that didn’t have to do with “lasering things or frying things” were two sentences about a multi-segmented insect that walks out on the screen and winds its way down the screen toward the player, she says. There was implicit shooting, as the player at the bottom had to destroy the insect before getting hit by it, but “it didn’t seem that bad to shoot a bug.” Thus, “Centipede” was born. Atari, Steinberg says, pioneered a lot of the concepts that are popular in gaming today: Games should be for both men and women, and they should be social by allowing many people to compete with each other..

In addition RT Industries also received accreditation for its organizational employment services which area citizens recognize as the RT Industries production facility. This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows RT Industries’ substantial conformance to CARF standards. In addition to putting itself through a rigorous peer review process, RT Industries demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable and of the highest quality. RT Industries is a non-profit organization with its production facility and offices located at 110 Foss Way in Troy. It has been providing a variety of vocational services to individuals with developmental disabilities since 1973 under the umbrella of services of Riverside of Miami County. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF International, this accrediting body establishes consumerfocused standards to help organizations measure, and most importantly improve, the quality of their programs and services.

across living rooms and arcades in the 1970s. But they might recognize elements of it in easy-tolearn, hard-to-master games based on simple physics — among them, “Angry Birds.” “For tens of millions of Gen Xers, or kids who grew up in America in the ’70s and ’80s, Atari is a cultural icon, an intrinsic part of childhood,” says Scott Steinberg, tech analyst and author of “The Modern Parent’s Guide to Kids and Video Games.” “Pong,” he adds, was in some ways the very first social video game, one designed to play in bars, at home or at an arcade, while spectators crowded around to watch the action. Launched in 1972 from Atari’s Silicon Valley headquarters, “Pong” featured a basic blackand-white screen (that’s black and white only, no shades of gray here), divided by a dotted line. Short white lines on either side stood in for paddles. Two players controlled them and tried to get a moving dot — the ball — past their opponent. With “Pong,” Atari introduced video games to the masses just as Apple and Microsoft ushered in the personal computer era by bringing computers to people’s

Thomas joins Fisher-Cheney TROY — Howard Cheney, owner of Fisher-Cheney Funeral Home, has announced that Roger Thomas has joined his staff as a funeral director and embalmer. Thomas is not a stranger to Troy. After he graduated from the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science in 1979 his first job as THOMAS a funeral director/embalmer was with another Troy funeral home. In the late 1980s, he and his family moved to Dayton. Thomas said he is pleased to return to Troy where he looks forward to re-establishing old friendships and becoming active in the community. He recently joined the Troy Optimist Club. His wife, Gala (Moyer) Thomas is a Troy native and they were married in 1984 at St. Patrick Church, Troy. They have two grown sons, Bradley who lives in Tennessee and Dane who lives in Vandalia. The funeral home has been serving families in Miami County since June 1974. Together, the two offer a combined 81 years of cumulative experience. When Cheney first came to Troy, he purchased the Cron Funeral Home in 1974 and later the Fisher Funeral Home in 1977. Fisher-Cheney Funeral Home has been serving families at its present location at 1124 W. Main St. in Troy since July

1977. Fisher-Cheney Funeral Home offers all burial and cremation options. They are able to accommodate small, intimate family gatherings up to larger services with the capacity to seat over 400 people. The ample parking lot will accommodate more than 100 cars.

(AP) — Today is Sunday, July 1, the 183rd day of 2012. There are 183 days left in the year. This is Canada Day. Today's Highlight: On July 1, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed the first Pacific Railroad Act "to aid in the construction of a railroad and telegraph line from the Missouri river to the Pacific ocean."

On this date: In 1863, the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, resulting in a Union victory, began in Pennsylvania. In 1867, Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain as the British North America Act took effect. In 1946, the United States exploded a 20-kiloton atomic bomb near Bikini Atoll in

the Pacific. In 1962, the African nations of Burundi and Rwanda became independent of Belgium. In 1980, "O Canada" was proclaimed the national anthem of Canada. In 1987, President Ronald Reagan nominated federal appeals court judge Robert H. Bork to the Supreme Court, set-

ting off a tempestuous confirmation process that ended with Bork's rejection by the Senate. In 1991, President George H.W. Bush nominated federal appeals court judge Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, beginning an ultimately successful confirmation process marked by allegations of sexual harassment.

Islamist Morsi is sworn in as Egypt’s president CAIRO (AP) — Islamist Mohammed Morsi promised a “new Egypt” and unwavering support to the powerful military as he took the oath of office Saturday to become the country's first freely elected president, succeeding Hosni Mubarak who was ousted 16 months ago. In a solemn inauguration ceremony before the Supreme Constitutional Court, Morsi also became the Arab world’s first freely elected Islamist president

and Egypt’s fifth head of state since the overthrow of the monarchy some 60 years ago. “We aspire to a better tomorrow, a new Egypt and a second republic,” Morsi said before the black-robed judges in the court’s Nileside headquarters built to resemble an ancient Egyptian temple. “Today, the Egyptian people laid the foundation of a new life — absolute freedom, a genuine democracy and stability,” said

Morsi, a 60-year-old U.S.trained engineer from the Muslim Brotherhood, a fundamentalist group that has spent most of the 84 years since its inception as an outlawed organization harshly targeted by successive governments. He later delivered his inauguration address at a gigantic Cairo University lecture hall packed with several thousands, including many members of the Islamist-dominated parliament dissolved by the mili-

tary earlier in June. Morsi repeated his oath of office and lavishly praised the military, which has rushed a series of decrees this month that stripped Morsi of significant powers, gave it legislative power and took control of the process of drafting a permanent constitution. It has also retained its influence on key domestic and foreign policy issues. “The armed forces are the shield and sword of the nation,” he said. “I pledge

before God that I will safeguard that institution, soldiers and commanders, raise its prestige and support it with all the powers available to me so it can be stronger.” But Morsi also appeared later in the address to urge the military to hand over all powers to his elected administration. “The (ruling) Supreme Council of the Armed Forces has honored its promise not to be a substitute for the popular will

and the elected institutions will now return to carry out their duties as the glorious Egyptian army returns to being devoted to its mission of defending the nation's borders and security,” he said. Military ruler Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi was in attendance along with other generals from the ruling council. His arrival at the hall was greeted by chants of “the army and the people are one hand.”

Syria conference leaves open Assad question GENEVA (AP) — An international conference on Saturday accepted a U.N.brokered peace plan for Syria, but left open the key question of whether the country's president could be part of a transitional government. The U.S. backed away from insisting that the plan explicitly exclude President Bashar Assad from any role in a new Syrian government, hoping the concession would encourage Russia to put greater pressure on its longtime ally to end the violent crackdown that the opposition says has claimed more than 14,000 lives. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton insisted that Assad would still have to go, saying it is now “incumbent on Russia and China to show Assad the writing on the wall.” “There is a credible alternative to the Assad regime,” she said. “What we have done here is to strip away the fiction that he and those with blood on their hands can stay in power.” Moscow had refused to back a provision that would call for Assad to step aside, insisting that outsiders cannot order a political solution for Syria and accusing the West of ignoring the darker side of the

Syrian opposition. The opposition has made clear it would not take part in a government in which Assad still held power. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov underlined that the plan does not require Assad's ouster, saying there is “no attempt in the document to impose on the Syrian people any type of transitional process.” More than a year into the uprising, Syria’s opposition is still struggling to overcome infighting and inexperience, preventing the movement from gaining the traction it needs to instill confidence in its ability to govern. The U.N. plan calls for establishing a transitional government of national unity, with full executive powers, that could include members of Assad’s government and the opposition and other groups. It would oversee the drafting of a new constitution and elections. Special envoy Kofi Annan said following the Geneva talks that “it is for the people of Syria to come to a political agreement.” “I will doubt that the Syrians who have fought so hard to have independence ... will select people with blood on their hands to lead them,” he said.

VALLEY Let freedom ring

B1 July 1, 2012


Communities to celebrate holiday with parades, fireworks BY MELODY VALLIEU Staff Writer he Fourth of July holiday annually celebrates the birth of our nation, the freedoms we enjoy and those who have served — and continue to serve — our country to make sure it remains that way. Many communities in the area also come together each year to share in the celebration by hosting parades, events for children and adults alike, and the grand finale of all — fireworks. And, this year will be no different. In Troy, the Miami Valley Veterans Museum members will start the holiday off with a veterans breakfast from 9-11 a.m. at the museum, 107 W. Main St., Troy, on the second floor of the Masonic building. Members will serve bacon, eggs, toast, doughnuts and coffee. This event is free and open to the public. From there, museum volunteers, in conjunction with the Independence Day Celebration Association, will present the annual Fourth of July parade Wednesday morning. Parade line up will be at 8 a.m., and the parade will begin at 9 a.m. Stephen Larck, director of the Miami Valley Veterans Museum, said he believes it is important for Americans to celebrate the birth of our nation. “From the founding of our country in 1776, all the way to today, our military has assured us freedoms,” Larck said. “If it wasn’t for them and the military of today, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the freedoms that we do today.” The parade will be staged in the ITW/Hobart Corp. parking lots off Ridge Avenue, exit onto Ridge Avenue from West Street, proceed on Ridge Avenue to Race Drive to Grant Street, and return to the parking lots off of Grant Street. Larck said the community is invited to gather along the route and help participants celebrate. The parade will include patriotic songs by Troy’s “Songbird” Betty Tasker, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, along with military — past and present — riding and walking, children on bikes and in wagons and community members and their canine companions. “We’ve got plenty of vehicles for veterans to ride in if they don’t want to walk,” Larck said. To ensure that everyone who wishes to participate in the parade is able to, Larck said the parade registration deadline has been extended through Monday. He said it is easy to sign up by visiting the website at, emailing or calling (937) 451-1455. At a ceremony last week, Carlas McFarland and Tom Kirkham were chosen as the parade’s grand marshals. Larck said both are well-known volunteers in the community. “They are very deserving of the title of grand marshal,” Larck said. After the parade, the committees have rented the Eagles picnic/campground at 2552 TroyUrbana Road, Troy, to continue the community celebration. Larck said anyone is invited and hot dogs and water will be offered beginning at noon at no charge and participants are asked to bring a covered dish to share. He said there will be a cruise-in of military, antique and classic vehicles on the grounds for viewing and anyone wanting to bring a vehicle is invited to

• Piqua The Piqua Fourth of July Association, with the help of local businesses, will again offers its Fourth of July celebration at Fountain Park on Wednesday. The event will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. when a fireworks display will be offered at Hardman Field. A Red, White and Blue Bar contest will begin at 10 a.m. for children 12 and younger. There will be prizes for all three bars, with a limit of one bar per child. A penny scramble will be available to children at 2 p.m. for ages 1-4, 2:15 for ages 5-8 and 2:30 p.m. for ages 9-12. The day will include food, games, music, rides and entertainment for all ages. Kiddie tractor pull sign ups for those age 1-8 will be at 11 a.m. and the pulls will be from noon until finished. Juggler Tyler Kiefer will roam the park grounds from noon to 2 p.m. Entertainment will be available in Hance Pavilion throughout the day, including: • 12:30-4:30 p.m. — Disc jockey music playing • 5-6 p.m. — Day 6 from Piqua Christian Church • 6:30-7:30 p.m. — Fulltilt. • 8-10 p.m. — The Stiffs.

• West Milton A float carrying Troy Junior Baseball athletes passes along the parade route in Troy.

The West Milton Lions Club again is hosting the West Milton Fourth of July Festival. The event will run from June 29 through July 4 with a fireworks show to cap off the events July 4.

According to Larck, the event will continue through the evening, so participants are invited to bring their lawn chairs and stay and watch the city of Troy’s fireworks from the picnic grounds. Troy’s fireworks display will begin about 10 p.m. Wednesday, and will be centered near the North Market Street ball field. The North Market Street Bridge will be open to traffic, but walking or standing on the deck or the bridge or the bridge’s sidewalks is prohibited. Also, the bike path will be closed east from the Troy Senior Citizens Center and at Rutherford Drive starting at noon until the fireworks are over. Fireworks are paid for by the city of Troy, Concord Township Trustees and Troy Foundation. Troy city offices also will be closed in observance of the holiday.

KENNEDY For the Troy Daily News 25 Years Ago: July 1-14, 1987 • COLUMBUS — Ohio lawmakers today voted to raise the speed limit on Ohio’s rural freeways from 55 mph to 65 mph. The change is expected to take effect in mid-July. As a small trade-off with being allowed to travel faster on the highways, we also will have to pay more at the pump because the bill also includes a 2 percent gasoline tax increase. Gov. Celeste has stated he will allow the bill with the new speed limit to become law without signing it. Permission to allow the higher rates of speed on the interstate highways was given by Congress earlier in this year. • TROY — Following last year’s scare with the ground and water contamination at the county incinerator site, north of Troy, and worries that the city’s water supply could be affected, Troy contracted for a study of possible problems and solutions relating to the city’s water. Fears of contamination have abated somewhat, but the city remains vigilant in its effort to guard the water supply in Troy and the immediate vicinity. A significant step in the process of guarding the city wells is being aware of the possible avenues of contamination, and the most immediate in people’s minds, of course, is the incinerator site. But studies show that contamination from that source would take decades to reach the city wells, if ever. Another active part of the program is the regular

HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY 50 Years Ago: July 1-14, 1962 • TROY — Frosty Brown once again came through with a great pitching performance to help his Pony League team win their contest. Brown struck out 16 and allowed only four hits to help the Covaults team win its sixth game in seven opportunities. The game was played at the Athletic Field (Market Street Field) against Donneslville. Several of Brown’s teammates added offensive strength to ensure the 5-0 victory.

testing of wells in and near the city and closely monitoring any mineral, chemical or bacterial level changes in the water supply. At this point, there is nothing to give us any concern. 50 Years Ago: July 1-14, 1962 • BETHEL TOWNSHIP — A large black animal which was sighted recently in Mad River Township of Montgomery County has now been spotted by several residents in the Brandt and Phoneton areas. Although the Southwestern Ohio Division of Wildlife will not commit to saying what the animal is, several residents who have seen it say it is a panther. Mrs. Ralph Dinsmore, Brandt resident, stated she saw a very large paw print in her garden. Two sightings of the animal were turned in by Mrs. Steven Barmeister who lives at the corner of Route 440 (State Route 40) and Sullivan Road and Mrs. Chester Mann on Route 440, east of Brandt. Officials were quick to note that sightings of strange animals are not uncommon and that there is no cause for alarm.

75 Years Ago: July 1-14, 1937 • SIDNEY — This morning (July 2nd), two men disguised as workers at the Sidney Grain Machine Tool Co. met paymaster Edwin Serving as he returned to his office from the bank with the company’s payroll and promptly siezed the money at gunpoint and fled. A third man was waiting nearby with an auto and it was reported that they left Sidney by going east. The police were able to get the license plate number of the auto and will attempt to trace the vehicle. Officials at the company stated it was not unusual to see workmen coming from or going to Serving’s office, so the two men entering the office did not arouse any suspicion. The thiefs were able to get away with $2,915. 100 Years Ago: July 1-14, 1912 • MIAMI COUNTY — It was reported by E.W. Mendenhall of the Ohio Department of Agriculture that the Elm Leaf Beetle, which was imported from Europe, has been found in Miami County near Troy. The beetle is very destructive to Elm

trees and it is the second time they have been found in Ohio, the first being several years ago in Dayton. The outbreak of the beetle is very bad in the East. • TROY — A shock and surprise was received by the family and many friends of William M. Hayner with his sudden death in Dayton. Mr. Hayner, owner and president of the Hayner Distilling Co., was 55 years old and has spent most of his adult life in Troy. He was born in Piqua, but spent several years in Lebanon with a grandmother following the death of his mother. He also resided a number of years in Lima and Waco, Texas. Mr. Hayner, along with his brotherin-law Walter Kidder, have overseen the growth and development of the Hayner Company since 1892 when Lewis Hayner died. The company is one of the largest of its kind in the country. Mr. Hayner leaves a widow, Mary Jane Hayner, and a daughter, Isabel, who is just 13 years old, to mourn him. He is also survived by a sister, Mrs. Walter (Georgianna) Kidder, and a brother, Mr. Charles C. Hayner. 120 Years Ago: July 1-14, 1892 • TROY — We have learned that the Troy Bending Co. will soon reorganize as a corporation. This concern is a very valuable part of our industrial community and its incorporation will greatly aid its expansion and business. (Columnist’s Note: The Troy Bending Co. was incorporated in September 1892 with a capital stock of $50,000. The company manufactured

carriage and wagon shafts, and poles. Later, it would merge with a couple other companies, but much of its product was made obsolete with the growth of the auto industry.) • Troy — The Troy Reds split two games of baseball with the “nine” from Sidney on the Fourth (July 4th). The first game was lost because of a handicap which the Troy team had, but continued to play in spite of it, losing 4-6. In the second game, the Reds recovered their usual form and the hits came freely, even a home run by Barlow Dickey. The final tally was 20-12. (Columnist’s Note: The newspaper did not explain what the “handicap” was, but stated it would have made most ordinary teams quit. Whether it was being short of a few players or several injuries to players is not divulged in the article.) 146 Years Ago: July 1-14, 1866 • TIPPECANOE CITY — Several safe blowers were in the area on Friday, but were “sent away” empty handed. After the men tried to open the safes of Mr. Chaffee and the railroad, the bandits were discovered by a citizen, who fired a shot at the would-be thieves and they returned the favor, but then fled on foot. The safe workers were not able to take any “reward” for their efforts. Patrick D. Kennedy is archivist at the Troy-Miami County Public Library’s Local History Library, 100 W. Main St. Troy, 335-4082.

Women still trying to find a balance Working moms: Have it all or want what you have? NEW YORK (AP) — Amy Schultz Pearson is 31, married and has two young daughters. She just began training in anesthesiology and will be working 50 to 80 hours a week. Pearson has a message for Anne-Marie Slaughter, the former State Department policymaker who lamented in The Atlantic that her “have it all” approach to work and family didn’t go so well: She’s not surprised. The difference? Pearson is happy. She knows that even if having it all is a myth, she’ll revert with pleasure to part-time work without guilt or regret. “I feel that while feminists of the previous generation may have told my generation that we could ‘have it all,’ we have observed their ‘have it all’ lives long enough to see through the well-meaning front,” said Pearson, who chose to stay in her Midwest hometown for her medical training so relatives can help her and her husband, a teacher, with the kids. “We’re not surprised when someone like Dr. Slaughter reneges, but maybe they are, and they feel they have let us down. It’s no one’s fault,” she said. “It’s the nature of the beast when trying to combat hundreds of years of inequity in a matter of decades.” Slaughter, 53, returned to academia at Princeton after two years in Washington, away from her teen boys but with a husband at home and her tenure intact. Since her magazine story last week burst open the debate on the difficulties for working

mothers, she has heard from hundreds of women, most of whom were grateful that such a high-flying career juggler has spoken up about the need for more flexibility on the job. One was a policewoman. Another a social worker. There was a Nobel laureate, and women who were the first in their families to graduate from college. “They’re saying, ‘Thank you, I’ve been looking for honest counsel and haven’t been able to find it,’” Slaughter told The Associated Press on Monday. Consider Ana Homayoun, 33, in San Francisco, among the honest. She works as an education counselor and career trainer for high school and college girls. The toll on their lives gets lost in the haveit-all debate about career and family, she said. “I talk to them about this issue all the time,” Homayoun said. “It’s this message that you can and should be able to have it all, all the time, and for a lot of them that seems to be polarizing and shameinducing because they’re really anxious about getting into the real world, and they can’t figure out in their own head how they’re supposed to make it all work.” For many, she said, waiting until they’re Slaughter’s age and at her elite level is too late. “The planning what they want out of their lives needs to start in high school, college, to avoid reacting to a bad situation later,” Homayoun said. “A lot of my friends in their 30s are leaving corporate

high-powered tracks, not because they lack ambition or talent but because it doesn’t seem feasible or workable for the entire arc of their lives.” Kathy Doyle Thomas, 55, is the executive vice president of a book store chain and chairman of the board of the Retail Advertising and Marketing Association. She’s still on Plan A as the mother of three who has been juggling home and work for more than a decade. “I still feel bad that 15 years ago I left my kindergarten son and his carpool in the rain,” she said. “I think several of those moms we carpooled with are still upset with me.” The difference sometimes between working fathers and working mothers, Thomas said, is that women tend to worry about family and balance all the time. “We compare ourselves to the moms on the block that always seem to volunteer for everything. The ones who are overly involved,” said Thomas, whose youngest is now 17. Is having it all in reasonable balance doable while more mothers in the U.S. wait out reforms that would make their lives better? Things like flexible hours, working from home or working part-time while raising kids and keeping careers on track? Is having it all worth having until then? “If you are defining it as living to your fullest potential in your field while also being present, both physically and emotionally, for your family at any time, of course it’s a fantasy,” said


This undated image released by Princeton University shows former State Department official Anne-Marie Slaughter. In an article for The Atlantic magazine, Slaughter describes her struggles balancing a high-powered career with raising her two sons. Since her magazine story last week burst open the debate on the difficulties for working mothers, she has heard from hundreds of all ilks, most of whom were grateful that such a high-flying career juggler has spoken up about the need for more flexibility on the job. Meredith Persily Lamel, a professor in the business school at American University in Washington, D.C. Persily Lamel, 40, is a graduate of a Top 5 MBA program (the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business) and also coaches high-achieving professional moms. In her 30s, she took a 25 percent pay cut to get off the road as a business consultant for a large, publicly traded firm because of an intense travel schedule when she wanted to get pregnant. “All of the women I studied with continue working. Most of us who chose to raise a family have had major career changes since we graduated. We all moved to a more flexible work environment (entrepreneurship, contract work,

academia). The men on the other hand haven’t made the same shifts,” she said. Now the mother of two kids, ages 5 and 3, Persily Lamel continues as she did when she was younger to run leadership and training programs for chiefs of staff and legislative directors on Capitol Hill, seeing it as no accident that “so many staffers leave when they become parents.” Her husband was an attorney on the hill before kids but shifted to public affairs consulting to make their lives work. Laura Musante, 41, in Suffolk County, worked at a pharmaceutical company while she completed her college degree part-time at night. It took 20 years. Ever since, and three kids later with a husband who works long days, she has contort-

ed to her life into a blur of Plan Bs in her quest for work-family balance. “Part-time work outside the home, full-time work, stay-at-home mother 24/7, first shift working from home, second shift working outside the home, telecommuting etc.,” she said. Her oldest 16 and her youngest a year old, Musante now works from home about 28 hours a week as a medical editor and a content provider for a mom website. “I can tell you that every time I changed my work arrangement, I just changed HOW I was juggling all the balls without really changing how WELL I was juggling them,” she said. “I’ve decided that more important than having it all is the philosophy of wanting what you have.”

Animal shelters overburdened with cats in summer Hurley said. “It’s a huge challenge and it comes at the same time a lot of us think about our vacations.” Location can cause different sets of problems. June is the start of hurricane season, so in Florida that means extra feeding, cleaning and adoption events to place more animals and more time spent working in the rain and preparing for storms, said Janet Winikoff, director of education at the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County in Florida. In some cities, shelters lose volunteers because students go home, snowbirds go north and helpers go on vacation. Some shelters are lucky and the number of volunteers goes up.

The Richmond (Va.) Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals averages 350 volunteers between September and May and 415 from June to August, said chief operating officer Tamsen Kingry. “Much of this increase is due to college students and high schoolers spending time with us during their summer vacations,” she said. Lucky volunteers might be asked to work early or late to exercise animals when it’s coolest, but most staff and volunteers have to deal with the heat if they are responding to cruelty and neglect cases, hauling equipment, mucking out stalls or doing other daytime chores. Besides food bills and

utility bills, summer medical costs go up at most shelters. “Fleas and ticks are horrible in the summer, and this year is worse than ever because we had a mild winter that did not kill them off,” said Whitney Jones, animal care manager at the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby

County, Tenn. “We purchase flea and tick medication in bulk to manage these costs, but yes, treating active flea and tick infestations does get pricey.” Medicine for heartworm transmitted by mosquitoes is another necessity, especially in damper parts of the country.

bottle-fed and there aren’t enough hands, she said. Disease in younger kittens also takes a toll. “We lose a lot of kittens this time of year,” Bruin said. Yolo County Animal Services in Woodland, near the university, normally takes in about 150 cats a month. From May to October, though, that number jumps to 300, Hurley said. The Dumb Friends League, which operates shelters in Colorado, had 350 to 400 cats in February but 751 on June 1, said spokesman Chris Gallegos. Adding to the population explosion at shelters are puppy litters, runaway dogs (kids leave doors and gates open), dogs hit by cars and dogs rescued from hot cars. In the past, shelters in college towns would have a rush of abandoned pets when school let out, but that’s been changing in recent years, Hurley said. There are a few owners who will dump their pets so they can go on vacation, but with that kind of owner, the pets are probably better off, Bruin said. Extra animals don’t mean more room, more staff or more money,


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Summer at animal shelters across the country means more animals, more work, more bills and more worries. And there are sometimes fewer staffers, volunteers and donations to handle it. At the majority of animal shelters in the country, kittens make up problem Nos. 1 through 10 every summer, said Dr. Kate F. Hurley, director of the Koret Shelter Medicine Program at the University of California at Davis Center for Companion Animal Health. “Kitten season” starts in the spring and ends in the fall in most parts of the country a single unspayed female cat can have up to two litters of four or more kittens each. The Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department gets hundreds of kittens during the summer, but it “feels like millions,” said director Barbara Bruin. “People are more likely to get a dog fixed than a cat, more likely to microchip a dog than a cat and more likely to claim a dog than a cat. Cats are the throwaways and we end up with way too many litters,” she said. Many kittens die because they are brought in so young they have to be

Bringing the Belle back Air Force museum tour offers access to restoration DAYTON (AP) — The buffed silver fuselage of the Memphis Belle now belies the famed B-17 bomber’s six punishing months of World War II air combat and the subsequent decades of neglect that left the plane battered by the elements and stripped by souvenir hunters while on public display in its namesake city. The most celebrated American aircraft to emerge from the great war rests these days in a cavernous hangar at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base undergoing a loving and fastidious restoration, from its clear plastic nose cone down to the twin .50-caliber machine guns bristling in the tail. About the only section left untouched so far is the signature “nose art” on the pilot’s side: the leggy Esquire pinup girl in a blue bathing suit seductively perched above the Memphis Belle nickname, as much a part of the plane’s legend as its odds-defying 25 bombing missions over occupied Europe in 1942-43. The plane eventually will be displayed at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton. But in the meantime, the public can see the progress of the Belle while museum staffers and volunteers finish the painstaking process of reassembling it over the next two years at the base. This is great news for military aircraft buffs. On most Fridays, museum visitors who sign up in advance online are bused over to the remote hangars for a three-hour “behind the scenes” tour that includes a number of planes being restored for display in the museum. The place looks like a boneyard for once-proud flying machines, strewn with fuselage shells, unattached wings and other pieces, but the tours led by volunteer guides who know their stuff bring the old aircraft to life. There’s a T-6 Texan II training aircraft, a World War II-era Fairchild C-82 Packet cargo plane, and a Vietnam-era Douglas A-1H fighter, all with great stories and all getting the same adoring attention from the museum restoration staff. But for most visitors, the highlight will be the majestic Memphis Belle, heralded as the first B-17 to complete its required 25 bombing missions and return to the United States. Mostly in pieces since it was brought to the museum from Tennessee in 2005 aboard six semi tractor-trailers, the plane started to take a more recognizable shape last fall when the wings were reattached and landing gear lowered. The behind-the-curtain work will continue until the plane is put on display in the huge museum sometime in 2014. “It’s a very famous aircraft and is very historically significant, too, and it’s really appropriate for us to have it here,” said Greg Hassler, a restoration supervisor at the museum. “For us to be able to honor what I consider the greatest generation, to restore an icon like this, is just a tremendous honor.” The Memphis Belle’s journey to Dayton was a long one. The B-17F “Flying Fortress” piloted by then-Lt. Robert Morgan had its famous name before it left the U.S. mainland. Morgan, who died in 2004, said it was inspired by his sweetheart, 19-year-old Memphis resident Margaret Polk. The actual moniker came from a riverboat in a John Wayne movie called “Lady for a Night” that Morgan and his co-pilot saw the night before the crew voted on a name. The art was a copy of a

Before heading for Europe, Morgan flew the bomber to Memphis, where Polk christened it with a bottle of champagne amid much fanfare. “We could not possibly have seen it at the time, but this was the beginning of the most-publicized romance of World War II,” Morgan wrote in his 2001 memoir. “The national newspaper and magazine boys would leap onto our story of whirlwind courtship interrupted by war, a story enacted thousands of times over by young men and women all across America. What made our version special or at least highly visible to the media was that lilting name, and the sexy illustration, emblazoned on the nose of my B-17.” One of more than 12,000 B17 heavy bombers built for the war effort, the Belle and its 10man crew flew daring daylight precision bombing raids on industrial targets and submarine pens in Germany and occupied France from a base in central England. It was harrowing duty. Two out of three young

Owen makin’ up for lost time Singer/songwriter to return to Fort Loramie for first time since 2008 BY JIM DAVIS Staff Writer Jake Owen hasn’t been to Fort Loramie since 2008, but the Florida native plans on making up for lost time. “When we play shows, people get the same thing every time, and that’s a guaranteed good time. That’s what we do,” said Owen, who is scheduled to play at 6 p.m. Friday — Day 2 of the annual Country Concert at Hickory Hill Lakes. “I look forward to the crowd giving me a good vibe, as well. It’s a two-way street. I’m kind of like a fire and they’re the gasoline. The more gasoline they throw on the fire, the bigger my fire gets.” Lately, Owen’s fire has been burning pretty bright. His third studio album, “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” boasts back-to-back No. 1 hits — including the title song and “Along With You” — representing the first two chart-toppers of the 31-year-old’s career. Owen said it’ll be particularly gratifying to revisit fans in Fort Loramie since his last visit four years ago. “I get to come back with a couple of No. 1 hits that I didn’t have, which is pretty cool,” he said. “Any time we get to play a big show like the Country Concert, we look forward to making more and more fans.” The added exposure means Owen and his band have been plenty busy the past few months, but he’s taking it in stride. “I definitely enjoy it, but it does get a lot busier,” he said. “When you have to roll on to the

next town and keep the bus wheels moving, it’s hard to take time and soak it all in. I don’t get to see my family much these days, but I know the hard work I put in now will all pay off down the road. “I’m just enjoying the ride. I’m enjoying being able to stay busy and sing these songs and hear people sing them back to me louder than I’m singing it to them, and that’s pretty cool,” he continued. “It’s really gratifying, and I don’t take any of it for granted. It’s nice to see that what we’ve been doing for the past seven years is paying off for all of us.” While his name and voice may be the thing fans remember, the singer/songwriter — whose previous hits include “Yee Haw,” “Startin’ With Me” and “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You” — is quick to share the accolades with his band, who he said has been a huge part of his success. “Pretty much all of the guys in my band have been with me since the beginning, and it’s a really cool thing to share with them,” he said of his recent success. “They’ve worked as hard as I have and it’s a team effort. I could not do it without these guys. They see more of me than their own families, so it’s nice to be able to share the glory together. And it’s nice because, after all of these years of me telling them we’re going to make it, now they can finally believe me.” For more information about Jake Owen, visit online at To learn more about the Country Concert go to

Q& A


The Zac Brown Band will make its first-ever appearance at the annual Country Concert at Hickory Hill Lakes when they perform July 6 in Fort Loramie.

with Coy Bowles of the Zac Brown Band

BY JIM DAVIS Staff Writer

ome bands are lucky enough to make it to the top of the country music mountain, but few have been able to make it as fast as the Zac Brown Band. After hitting the proverbial home run with its 2008 debut hit “Chicken Fried,” ZBB and has enjoyed a meteoric ride to the top of the charts with nine consecutive No. 1 singles and more than 50 combined awards nominations ranging from Grammy and ACM nods to CMA, AMA and CMTs. The band’s latest single — “The Wind” — already is at No. 24 on the Billboard country charts, and is from the band’s soon-to-be released album “Uncaged” on Zac Brown’s Southern Ground Artists record label. Friday, ZBB and special guests Blackberry Smoke and Sonia Leigh will help close out the second night of the three-day Country Concert at Hickory Hill Lakes in Fort Loramie. Guitarist and keyboard player Coy Bowles shared his thoughts on coming to Fort Loramie and on a variety of topics during a recent phone interview with the Troy Daily News. • WHAT KIND OF SHOW CAN FANS EXPECT WHEN YOU GET TO FORT LORAMIE? “We’ve been working on the show for years now, and after this tour, we’ve got it down to kind of a science. You don’t really get to understand the Zac Brown Band until you come to see us live. It’s where we really shine. And I always like playing for crowds who have never seen us before, because we kind of show up and throw down in a really energetic way. Just sit back and listen, and we’ll take care of things for a little while.” • WITH SEVEN PEOPLE IN THE BAND, HOW DO YOU PUT IT ALL TOGETHER AND MAKE IT WORK? “I love my job. It’s not even a job, really. I love what I get to do, and this is an amazing group of guys. I still have a lot to learn from each of them. I think that with the work ethic that we have, we’ve earned a lot of the success we’ve had. We didn’t start out counting all the hours of work we put into it. We’ve been busting our (butts) for six or seven years. But there’s definitely a chemistry that we’ve tapped into that has


an unknown ‘God-bless’ factor to it. All of us wake up every day and feel very blessed to be doing what we’re doing.” • ZBB HAS BEEN KNOWN TO BRING SPECIAL GUESTS INTO THE FOLD FOR SHOWS. WHO WILL WE SEE AT FORT LORAMIE? “Every show works differently. (Guest performers) will either have their own set and open up for us, or they’ll play a couple of songs with us. Blackberry Smoke is pretty much a modern day savior of southern rock. They’re the real deal. They take all the aspects of southern rock and bottle it up. And they don’t just dress the part. They can really play and sing. And Sonia Leigh is kind of a singer/songwriter who comes from more of a hell-bent, whiskey side of things. She’s definitely not your bubble-gum singer/songwriter. She’s one of the most poetic songwriters that I’ve heard in a long time.” • YOU HAVE A NEW ALBUM (“UNCAGED”) DUE OUT JULY 10. IS THERE ANY PRESSURE TO REPEAT SUCCESS OF PAST CD’s? “I can’t say it wasn’t in the back of everybody’s mind, but once we got in the room together and we started writing music — all that flies out the window. The last album was really good, but I think this is heading into possibly the best album we’ve done.” • IN AN EVER-CHANGING MUSIC INDUSTRY, WHAT KEEPS YOU INSPIRED TO GET UP EVERY DAY AND KEEP MAKING MUSIC? “I’ve always been fueled by music. Just being tapped into a place where creativity fuels you — that’s how my engine runs … that and being around a lot of other people in an amazing band who are creating music, and being able to see an audience that wants to see us creating music and see us play. That keeps you going and keeps you inspired.” •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• In addition to Bowles, the Georgia-based band consists of Zac Brown on lead vocals and guitar; Clay Cook on guitar, organ, mandolin, pedal steel and vocals; Chris Fryar on drums; Daniel de los Reyes on percussion; Jimmy De Martini on violin and vocals; and John Driskell Hopkins on bass and vocals.

Garfield portrays a restless, reckless ‘Spider-Man’ It’s impossible to avoid the comparisons, so we may as well just get them out of the way early so we can move on. “The Amazing SpiderMan” a reboot? Prequel? New chapter? It’s hard to decide what to call it is pretty much different in every way from the staggeringly successful Marvel Comics-inspired trilogy that preceded it. The basics are the same: A high school kid gets bitten by a scientifically modified spider, discovers he has newfound super powers, decides to use them as a vigilante crime fighter and takes to the streets of New York in an unforgivingly tight redand-blue suit. But in terms of tone, characters, performances and even visual effects, “The Amazing Spider-Man” feels like its own separate entity. It may not be as transporting or genrealtering an experience as those earlier films, especially the first two, but it finds a distinct voice. And a great deal of that has to


In this film image released by Sony Pictures, Andrew Garfield portrays Peter Parker and Spider-Man in a scene from “The Amazing Spider-Man,” set for release on July 3. do with the central performance from Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. In the hands of Tobey Maguire, who originated the role in “Spider-Man” a decade ago, Peter was nerdy, scrawny, insecure — that’s how his everyman relatability manifested itself. Garfield plays Peter as more of a misunderstood outsider, a rebel with a chip on his shoulder, a guy who wasn’t afraid to stand up to the class bully even before he underwent his transformation. And that slightly arrogant attitude gives the whole movie

a restless, reckless energy and a welcome sense of danger. At the helm, Marc Webb is a very different sort of director. He may not have sounded like the most obvious choice for a hugely anticipated blockbuster based on his only previous feature, the romantic comedy charmer “(500) Days of Summer.” His big set pieces may lack some of the imagination that director Sam Raimi brought previously, but they’ll do. More importantly, though, he conveys an emotional truth, a pervasive sense of humanity,

which may be an even tougher feat in this kind of fantastical scenario. Webb’s deft touch is especially clear in the scenes between Garfield and Emma Stone as Peter’s classmate Gwen Stacy, who has to be the cutest, bestdressed science geek on the planet. (In this version of the “Spider-Man” universe, we must be pre-Mary Jane Watson.) Stone radiates the cute, bright, quick-witted presence we’ve come to know and love in films like “Easy A” and “Crazy Stupid Love,” and she and Garfield have a sweetly flirty chemistry. (The scene where he finally asks her out without really asking her out is adorably awkward.) But there’s depth and sensitivity there, too, since she’s the only one who knows his secret for a long time. The script from James Vanderbilt, Steve Kloves and veteran Alvin Sargent begins when Peter was a boy. A sudden threat forces his parents to leave him with his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field) before disappearing forever. As Peter grows into a teenager, be begins to ask ques-

tions about who they were especially his mysterious scientist father (Campbell Scott). (If you hadn’t noticed, it’s a great supporting cast. All these longtime actors show what total pros they are by finding just the right balance in tone and never over- or under-playing their parts.) This brings him to the gleaming high-rise where his father’s former partner, Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), is deeply involved in some groundbreaking and unproven genetic research. When Connors finally tests his latest formula on himself, the results don’t exactly turn out the way he (or the unsuspecting residents of Manhattan) might have hoped. The destruction he causes in his altered state, and Spider-Man’s attempts to stop him from causing even more, provide the basis for the film’s obligatory noisy showdowns. Which brings us to the use of 3-D: “The Amazing Spider-Man” didn’t need it. I realize I say that a lot but it’s an observation that seems especially true this time around. Webb barely applies this de rigueur

trick maybe to make the background pop here and there, or in an aerial shot of the city, but he never puts the technology to its fullest use to make you feel immersed in this world. Basically, the 3-D feels like an attempt by the studio to sling more summer moviegoing dollars into its web; you should resist, especially since, based on a quick tease during the closing credits, a sequel is clearly being hatched. “The Amazing SpiderMan,” a Columbia Pictures release, is rated PG-13 for sequences of action and violence. Running time: 138 minutes. Three stars out of four.

Longtime New Yorker receptionist pens memoir BY MAE ANDERSON AP Book Reviewer NEW YORK (AP) — “The Receptionist: An Education at The New Yorker” (Algonquin), by Janet Groth: During the peak “Mad Men” era and beyond, Janet Groth spent over two decades 1957 to 1978 as a receptionist for The New Yorker, watching a parade of famous writers, poets, cartoonists and editors pass by her desk on the 18th floor of the magazine’s midtown office building. But unlike the determined Peggy Olson on “Mad Men,” Groth never rose through the ranks of the magazine as she expected to. Instead, she stayed at her post for 21 years, not marking time exactly — she earned a Ph.D. and taught at Vassar during that period — but never becoming the writer she dreamed of being. Groth uses her slim memoir partly to ponder why she was never published or offered a staff position on the magazine, other than a short stint in the art department that went nowhere. The prefeminist era and her own insecurity and identity crises played a role, she says. But most of the book is devoted to memories of all the experiences her post did offer. She chronicles her entrance interview with E.B. White, being wined and dined semi-platonically by writer Joseph Mitchell, befriending the Scottish writer Muriel Spark and being seduced and betrayed by a cavalier cartoonist whom she does not name. This is not a juicy tellall Groth remained an outsider as much as she was an insider at the magazine throughout her tenure, and legendary editor William Shawn stays a shadowy figure on the floor above throughout the book. Instead, she paints a picture of a naive Midwesterner coming of age in the 1960s and 1970s, experiencing the era’s turbulent politics and sexual revolution, all from behind the receptionist desk. She chronicles the ups and downs of her love life. Groth chafes a bit at being rebuffed by the magazine over the years a Talk of the Town she pens gets lost, she’s told there are no openings at the Briefly Noted books section but acknowledges her attempts to be published were few and far between. And she notes that there were many other benefits her place at The New Yorker afforded her: trips to Europe, 12 years of graduate school and time off to teach, and countless invitations to cultural and social events, which color the full and varied life she recounts in the memoir. In 1978, she finally ends her tenure at the magazine to take a job as a professor at the University of Cincinnati.

Autobiography vivid despite guarded tone BY JESSE WASHINGTON AP Book Reviewer Let’s get this out of the way up front: R. Kelly’s autobiography does not discuss what really happened with the sex tape that almost sent him to prison. It does not include a single word about Aaliyah, the late singer Kelly allegedly married when she was 15. Other tantalizing incidents and individuals are glossed over. A tell-all, this is not. Instead, “Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me” recounts the creative and family life of a once-in-a-generation performer and musician. Despite its guarded tone, the book is a vivid and entertaining journey that reveals much about the musical engine of a true artist. Kelly, whose ability to write and produce hits for himself and others is unparalleled in modern


This image provided by SmileyBooks shows the cover of R. Kelly’s “Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me.” R&B, does confront the defining theme of his career: the juxtaposition of the sacred and the profane, the sexual and the spiritual. In the first paragraph of his life story, Kelly’s beloved mother promises that he “could achieve all things through Christ Jesus.” Turn the page, and

Mama Joann is sneaking 5year-old Robert into a lounge where she is singing with her band. Next she’s in church, speaking in tongues. A few pages later, 8-year-old Robert is inside his mother’s house on the South Side of Chicago, taking pornographic pictures of adults and being molested by a teenage girl. And people question how “Sex Weed” and “U Saved Me” can come from the same man? Music was a constant presence inside young Robert. He literally had sounds cascading through his mind, “like I had a radio playing nonstop in my head. I would hear melodies, although I never knew what they meant. In fact, I thought everybody heard the music.” Kelly also never knew his father and could not read due to an undiagnosed disability. (Kelly says he is still illiterate;

his book was written with David Ritz, biographer of Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, and other giants.) The only reason Kelly graduated from elementary school was because he could play basketball. All this created a shy, shameful boy who often felt “like an alien,” a phrase that reappears throughout the book. Kelly credits his middleschool music teacher, Lena McLin, with recognizing his talent. As Kelly tells it, the first time McLin laid eyes on him in class, she singled him out and said: “You are going to be famous. You are going to write songs for Michael Jackson. You are going to travel the world.” Did she really say that without hearing him sing or play a note? It’s difficult to decide, especially since Kelly shades the facts elsewhere in the book. It’s obvious, however, that Kelly loves McLin, and

that she played an enormous role in Kelly’s development. Strangely, she vanishes from the book after Kelly drops out of high school. “Soulacoaster” goes on to describe the rise of Kelly’s career and engrossing details of the creation of his many classic songs and albums. Fans of Kelly and black music in general will enjoy his description of working with artists from Jackson (Kelly wrote “You Are Not Alone” for him, unasked) to Celine Dion (“I’m Your Angel”) to Notorious BIG (the title of their best collaboration can’t be printed here). In this all-access, reality-show era, it feels odd for a musician as bold as Kelly not to bare all. But when it comes to Kelly’s music, “Soulacoaster” leaves a clear picture of an artist, unbowed, who still has “thousands of songs to write and sing.”

“Custom Built Quality At An Affordable Price.”




Mortgage rate stays at record 3.66 percent WASHINGTON (AP) — The average U.S. rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage stayed this week at the lowest level on record. Cheap mortgages have helped drive a modest housing recovery and could give the broader economy a jolt at a time when the job market is weak. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac says the average on the 30-year loan was 3.66 percent. That’s unchanged from last week and the lowest since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s. The average rate on the 15-year mortgage, a popular refinancing option, slipped to 2.94 percent. That’s down from 2.95 percent last week and matches the record-low 2.94 percent reached three weeks ago. The rate on the 30-year loan has been below 4 percent since December. Cheap mortgages have provided a lift to the long-suffering housing market. Sales of new and previously occupied homes are up from the same time last year. Home prices are rising in most markets. And homebuilders are starting more projects. The number of people who signed contracts to buy previously occupied homes rose in May, matching the fastest pace in two years, the National Association of Realtors reported Wednesday. That suggests Americans are growing more confident in the market. Low rates could also provide some help to the economy if more people refinance. When people refinance at lower rates, they pay less interest on their loans and have more money to spend. Many homeowners use the savings on renovations, furniture, appliances and other improvements, which help drive growth. Still, the pace of home sales remains well below healthy levels. Many people are still having difficulty qualifying for home loans or can’t afford larger down payments required by banks. And the sluggish job market could deter some would-be buyers from making a purchase this year. The U.S. economy created only 69,000 jobs in May, the fewest in a year. The unemployment rate rose to 8.2 percent last month, up from 8.1 percent in April. Mortgage rates have been dropping because they tend to track the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. Uncertainty about how Europe will resolve its debt crisis has led investors to buy more Treasury securities, which are considered safe investments. As demand for Treasurys increase, the yield falls. And the yield will likely fall even lower now that the Federal Reserve has said it will continue selling short-term Treasurys and using the proceeds to buy longer-term Treasurys.

BY MELISSA RAYWORTH Associated Press From Memorial Day and Independence Day on through Labor Day, Americans are staging celebrations of patriotism. At summer ballgames and community events, we catch sight of billowing flags and take in the hum of the national anthem. At the height of summer, many of us look for ways to bring a bit of patriotic style or military flair into our homes. But how do you add a dash of Americana into your decor without giving your home the feel of a bed-andbreakfast in colonial Williamsburg? Interior designer Mallory Mathison says ramping up your in-house display of patriotism can be done in a chic, 21st-century way. “You can use that red, white and blue palette in ways that feel fresh and clean,” she says. “And it’s not the obvious, patriotic, Uncle Sam sort of thing.” But do tread carefully, says designer Lee Kleinhelter, owner of the Atlanta design store Pieces. “You can easily overdo it,” she says. So as you make decorating choices, “ask yourself whether it’s something you can easily live with every day.”

Flying the flag “Red, white and blue is classic,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn, creator of the design blog But it’s important to choose the right shades and patterns. “To add touches of American style to my spaces, I often turn to textiles, particularly nautical prints, or even Ralph Lauren plaids reminiscent of Hamptonsstyle homes or the preppy Ivy League styles of the Northeast,” Flynn says. “In a master bedroom for a bachelor, I used Navy blue as the room’s base color, then added

Or she’ll add cotton rugs in shades of red, white and blue over a hardwood floor. “Another way I use red, white and blue is with the

design of boys’ rooms,” Flynn says. “To put my own twist on it, I’ll use a geometric wall covering featuring different shades of blue and white, then use deep reds in accents to add contrast.” This works well for kids of any age, he says: “It’s something a boy can grow into, mixing it up over the years.” Kleinhelter agrees, but points out that less is often

more: “Don’t do the stars and the stripes,” she says. “Do just the stripes.”

One bold piece Rather than threading patriotic style throughout a room, Kleinhelter says, “it’s great to do more like a Popart take on it by going bold


Summer is best time to remodel your home Is summer the best time to remodel? Well, according to remodeling expert Dan Fritschen, yes it is. Here are some reasons why and also some tips on how to get it done. Summertime is when you might go away for the weekend to visit Grandma and perhaps take another weekend or a week to go to Disney. If you are remodeling, these are the best times for the workers to be in your house making a mess and getting the work done. The workers will have more space and you don’t have to worry about staying out of their way — plus when you come home, all or at least a good amount of the work will be done. If you are remodeling the kitchen, summer is certainly a good time to do it. You can eat outdoors, and light meals, not requiring much

if any cooking, are just the thing during the summer. Picnics are fun. If you happen to be opening a wall because you are adding a room, or if you need to open a wall to add a window, summer is the perfect time because you don’t have to worry about freezing-cold temperatures entering your humble abode. If painting is in order, summer is good because you can open windows to let the smell out and the fresh air in. Nature gives great inspiration, and summer is a perfect time to go out and enjoy nature. Look at the colors and the color combinations in nature. Absorb what appeals to you and use it in your remodeling. While you are out there soaking up the sun, consider getting your yard in order. Remodel, upgrade or simply clean up your landscape. Do it yourself for some great exercise!

Rain-style shower heads soothing This way, like the name says, they can rain down on the user. I do get a lot of questions about rain showers, especially at my speaking events where I demonstrate new rain-head shower technology. The newly designed rain heads that I have seen incorporate air-induction technology into the flow. Air-induction technology mixes air and water to produce large water droplets, and it delivers a more powerful rain-like experience than a standard rainstyle head. Bottom line: If you’re looking for more of a summer storm in your shower stall rather than just a little drizzle, check out the new rain heads with air-induction technology!

BY ED DEL GRANDE Scripps Howard News Service Q: Dear Ed, being a famous plumber, I’m sure you get a lot of questions about rain-style shower heads. But even though I’m a regular reader of your column, I may have missed one of your articles on rain-type shower heads. So please clear up some issues about them for me since I would like to install one. How big are they? Where should they be located in the shower stall? Thanks for being there for all our plumbing questions! — Fran, Nebraska A: Rain-type heads deliver a soothing, drenching experience that is very different from that offered by a regular shower head. They’re usually larger than standard shower heads as well. Sizes range about 8 inches to 12 inches in diameter, and they should be

installed on the ceiling of the shower stall, or directly overhead on a long shower arm mounted to the shower wall.

Remodel • Continued from C1 Some remodeling projects, such as a new driveway or walkway, might better be left to experts. But you never know: You might be ambitious enough to tackle these yourself. (A note of caution, however: Before tackling any project that could

involve significant exertion, you might want to get an OK from your doctor.) Solar panels are suggested for installation on your house. They can save you money and power your home, and summertime is when you will benefit the most from the panels. Well, there you have it.

Don’t be too lazy during the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. Get the house in order and the yard, too. You’ll be glad you did. Rosemary Sadez Friedmann, an interior designer in Naples, Fla., is author of “Mystery of Color.”

with just one piece.” She suggests selecting one photograph, maybe an American flag or a military ship, for instance. Then have it “enlarged maybe to the size of a wall in the space, and have that be the backdrop for the room.” To make this one striking item stand out even more, decorate the rest of the room in neutral colors, she says, “keeping everything really simple, with no clutter.”

Melting pot chic Mathison points out that American design, like American culture, is “sort of all-encompassing, because every different ethnicity is there.” So sometimes it’s a mixture of “really diverse styles, periods of time and ethnicities” that come together in “what we’ve interpreted as American style,” she says. You can mix these styles together, or zero in on one regional aspect of American style, Flynn says, such as “the classic traditional look of homes in the South, the preppy, coastal and casual feel of the Hamptons, and the supersleek appeal of Eames-era, MidCentury Modernism” you might find in Palm Springs, Calif.

Kitchens and dining areas “A kitchen is a really great place to do red, white and blue and still have it looking chic,” says Mathison. “It’s a small investment to get some pretty blue and white Williams-Sonoma towels,” then mix in cookware and utensils in red and white. She also finds patriotic style perfect for outdoor entertaining. “Outdoors,” she says, you can “use a red and white table cloth with blue and white transferware dishes.” Because entertaining items aren’t on display year-round, you

can have fun going a bit further with a particular theme.

Rustic Americana and vintage style “Classic farmhouse style is another common way of bringing American style into a space, particularly Americana,” says Flynn. “Rustic textures and reclaimed signage are a great way to warm up a space with American flair. Right now, I’m working on a space in Los Angeles that’s packed with rustic American style, as well as classic preppy touches: The walls are being covered in red and white gingham, the art is made from reclaimed U.S. license plates by a famous American artist named Aaron Foster, and the furniture is all Stickley style, the look you’d find in an Arts and Crafts-style home.” Vintage folk art or pieces of military memorabilia passed down in your family can make striking design elements, says Kleinhelter. Just about any item might work. “One client of mine collected folk art pieces that were American flags,” Mathison says, “like an old wine crate painted like an American flag, and an old metal tin.”

Original art “So many cities will have art fairs or art festivals,” Mathison says, “and a lot of times you can find local artists who do really neat interpretations of American flags” or other patriotic themes. Explore to find crafters and artists who have created items with a nod toward American history and patriotism. You may even be able to commission a custom piece from an Etsy vendor, adding the perfect piece of Americana to your home.

Fretwork inspires a design passion BY KEVIN KIRKLAND Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Carole Malakoff had never heard of Moorish fretworks when she and her husband, Bob, bought an 1871 Italianate-style house in Pittsburgh. But ever since they found an 11-foot section of the delicate woodwork within a wall, they have become experts — and collectors. The Malakoffs’ garden has a large goldfish pond and courtyard, and sitting on their reproduction Victorian back porch (with a cleverly concealed handicap ramp for Bob Malakoff) is the perfect way to spend an evening. It only gets better when you enter the back of the house, where a cozy new room features a gas-burning fireplace and a collection of rug beaters on the wall. Carole Malakoff, who also collects purses, says: “When you can have room to display things, you’re a collector. Otherwise, you’re a hoarder.” This house is a perfect showcase for collections, but it wasn’t when the Malakoffs bought it in 1992. Once owned by one of the Kaufmann brothers of department-store fame, it had been broken into three apartments. The couple began a nearly 20year restoration project on the upstairs, sleeping downstairs in a parlor. Several years ago, when contractor George Barnhart discovered a large piece of fretwork sandwiched between two pieces of drywall in that parlor, the homeowners recognized it as Victorian fretwork. But they didn’t know what it really was until they asked


ABOVE: The Moorish fretwork in Carole Malakoff’s home. RIGHT: Fretwork was incorporated in Carole Malakoff’s remodeled kitchen. Michael Eversmeyer, an architect and preservationist. Moorish fretwork caught the Victorians’ fancy because it was ornate woodwork with Oriental style. Carpenter Paul Tucker of Mount Holly Springs, Pa., is a fan and expert. His article in the May 2005 issue of The Magazine Antiques was an eye-opener for the Malakoffs, who soon began searching for more examples.

Tucker credits Moses Ransom of Cleveland with helping to popularize Moorish fretwork by inventing a machine that could carve long, thin, spiral-shaped pieces of wood and weave it in intricate patterns. In his 1885 patent application, Ransom wrote: “My invention successfully brings within the reach of people of ordinary means articles of great beauty and utility heretofore only attainable by the rich at great cost.” Unfortunately for Ransom, the craze was relatively shortlived, and by the early 20th century, homeowners tired of dusting fretwork were already removing it from doorways, landings and other spaces in their homes. Moorish fretwork occasionally turns up in antique stores, but dealers often know little about it, Carole Malakoff said. She has bought several sections that came with a bag of broken pieces. One of the most beautiful pieces of Moorish fretwork is the focal point of their kitchen. Uplit and suspended above a fiveburner gas stove, it never fails to draw attention. Contractor Ed Pinto has stripped and restored all of the home’s fretwork and built some of its cabinetry and other woodwork. Together with Barnhart, he has created a showplace that perfectly illustrates what Victorians — and many people today — consider the height of architectural ornament. Pinto is not just a carpenter, he’s an artisan, Carole Malakoff says. “When he leaves you, you are really happy with what he’s done.”
