The first of five former Miami County Maintenance Department workers who are accused of a high magnitude of thefts involving county-owned property made his appearance

TROY in common pleas court Monday to waive a grand jury’s consideration of his charges. Bruce Ball, 55, of Troy, entered a guilty plea to one charge of theft in office, a fifth-degree felony, in a plea agreement that stipulates no other charges will be filed against him and guarantees his further cooperation with the investigation. Following the court appearance, Ball was released on his own recognizance and a pre-

sentence investigation. Ball is due back in court on Sept. 4 for his sentencing hearing. He faces the maximum sentence of up to one year in prison and a $2,500 fine. Restitution in Ball’s case will likely not be required because items he allegedly had in his possession have since been recovered. Those items consisted of a lawn mower and a leaf blower, according to the prosecution. Ball, who served as a team leader for the

Participants of the Miami County Park District Eco-Splorers summer camp are getting a different approach to the camp this week during Bikeway Discovery Week. Children ride the path at Twin Arch Reserve Tuesday in Troy. According to park district Naturalist Deb DeCurtins, the experience exposes youth to the bike paths and what is available to them, teaches trail etiquette and encourages them to always be friendly to other riders. The group will be visiting a different trail each day throughout the week.

Theft, burglary suspect sought Staff Report

DARKE COUNTY

Robert Scott Kindred has been added to the local Crime Stoppers Most Wanted list after leading law enforcement on multiple chases this week in Darke and Miami counties. Kindred is a 42-year-old white male and is 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs 160 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

He led law enforcement on two separate pursuits and is currently at large. According to the Darke County

Sheriff ’s Office, Kindred is a suspect in a reported stolen car. A silver 2004 Ford Taurus was taken Monday night from Klipstine Road in KINDRED Versailles. The car was reportedly stolen between 11:30 p.m. and 6 a.m. Tuesday from inside the garage of a home. The keys were left inside the ignition. Miami County Sheriff ’s Office was notified Tuesday morning after an eye witness alleged to have seen Kindred driving the stolen vehicle.

Two pieces of legislation were passed after one reading at the July 16 Troy City Council meeting. The first approved was an agreement with the Ohio Public Works Commission for a $575,000 grant for the North Market Street Renovation Project. The final plat of the Nottinghill Subdivision was also OK’d by council. Located on 3.207 parcels of land, the Riverside Drive housing development includes a 0.728-acre public right-of-way. Garnering much more discussion was a presentation about the state of Troy’s economy, given by Troy Development Council president J.C. Wallace. Last year the TDC launched a “Partners in Progress” initiative, a fiveyear plan to expand economic development efforts. Council members had unanimously agreed to pledge $125,000 annually for the next five years, subject to annual review by city council. In conversations with local employers, Wallace noted that local businesses are indeed hiring, but are having difficulty finding qualified applicants. Businesses also expressed a need for additional high-quality buildings, he said. Wallace called the insights “very encouraging, but (they) could bring a new set of challenges.” Prior to council, Personnel Committee members approved a recommendation to grant two city employees a 30-day extension for duty injury leave at Monday’s meeting. Employees are granted up to 90 calendar days by ordinance and contracts, and in the rare situation that additional recovery days are needed, council must approve an extension, said Director of Public Service and Safety Patrick Titterington. Only one extension can be

Council addresses panhandlers, solicitation BY CECILIA FOX For the Troy Daily News editorial@tdnpublishing.com City officials are considering new legislation that will deal with panhandlers and create a Do-NotSolicit list. Council discussed the possibility of enacting this type of legislation during a study session last month and gave Law Director David Caldwell the go-ahead to draft an ordinance. Caldwell presented council with the first draft of the ordinance on Monday, which is based on similar ordinances in Englewood and Dayton. Though the word “panhandler” is not used, the proposed ordinance focuses on places where soliciting is prohibited, including any street, highway, median, or right-of-way. In this context, right-of-way means any roadway, shoulders, berm or ditch. “It defines right-of-way in several different ways that would clearly take care of the place out by the highway. You can’t be in the roadway, you can’t be in the median, you can’t be in any of these places where vehicles are moving,” Caldwell said. Soliciting, asking for money, contributions, employment, or business, will also be prohibited within 20 feet of any bank door or ATM, and at or in any sports facility, park, and hall or theater owned by the city. The ordinance will also create a Do-NotSolicit list, which interested residents will able to register for in person at City offices, or online on the

help the district out financially. Human Resource director Marion Stout reported major changes to the district’s meal plan with the federal realignment mandating more fresh fruit and vegetables this year, and a more restrictive calorie count will be in place. Stout said many of the changes were implemented last school year, yet more information from food vendors will determine how quickly the changes will take place in the fall. “The good news is that a healthier lunch is being served,” Stout said. Stout said although lunch prices will stay the same this year, next year an increase will be likely. “This will really change how our lunches are served,” Stout said, noting the cafeteria services are still waiting on guidelines to prepare for this year. “They are really dictating what you can offer.” Stout said the district is reliant on food

vendors to meet the new criteria. “It’s not us meeting the requirements, it’s the vendors that have the products for us,” Stout said. The board also voted to reissue bonds up to $10 million, bank qualified, for a lower interest rate. Jones compared the bond reissuance to refinancing a house to take advantage of better interest rates. The board accepted $17,069.48 in gifts and donations for the district. Of those gifts, the Troy Foundation gave $4,276 to Van Cleve’s Kids to College program and $8,000 to Kyle Elementary’s Ohio Reads program and $1,567.26 for the Hook Elementary School’s SRA Mathematics Laboratory. Other notable retirements and resignations include Hayner Cultural Center’s building and grounds coordinator Mitchell Fogle and Jean Kremer, the district’s coordinator of gifted services. Board member Dave Heffner was not in attendance at Monday’s meeting. For more information, visit www.troy.k12.oh.us

The implementation of the system would allow the plant to be automated for two shifts instead of being staffed at all hours. In response to a question from committee member John Schweser, Titterington said no employees would lose their jobs as a result. The cost is estimated at $891,200, with a minimum payback of five and a half years. In other news, the city of Troy will continue picking up limbs — 4 to 6 feet in length — left from the storms.

county’s maintenance department and earned $17.68 an hour, and Jarrod Harrah, 39, the facilities and safety director since 2007, were both suspended without pay in May following an investigation by the sheriff’s office into accusations regarding the thefts. Both men have since resigned from their former positions, but Harrah, who had an annual salary of $44,379, has yet to face a judge regarding his criminal charges. Harrah is a former Troy City Council member and president of the Miami County Republican Men’s Club. Three other employees with the department who were placed on a paid suspension and could face future charges consist of Rob Scherer, Tony Canarelli and Stan Maitlen. Those three remain on paid leave and their positions, and the positions once held by Ball and Harrah, have yet to be filled, according to the county commissioner’s office. On May 29, county commissioners approved the suspensions as the sheriff’s office continued to investigate the case, which began after individuals came forward with allegations concerning “inappropriate han-

dling of county equipment and purchases.” The investigation specifically dealt with allegations of theft, theft in office, having an unlawful interest in a public contract, tampering with evidence and tampering with records. Since that time detectives have seized truckloads of equipment that were taken from the homes of Ball, Harrah and the three other men. The goods include lawn mowers, weed eaters, power tools, hand tools, composite saws and a wide variety of assorted tools and lawn care equipment, along with several other items. County commissioners have yet to comment on the allegations pending the final outcome of the investigation and court proceedings. Miami County officials recused themselves from the case and Clark County Prosecutor D. Andrew Wilson is serving as the special prosecutor. Wilson, along with visiting judge Jonathan P. Hein, of Darke County Common Pleas Court, handled the matter in court with Ball’s attorney, Robert Huffman Jr. Wilson and Huffman both declined commenting on the case following the court hearing. Court dates for Harrah and the three other employees have yet to be scheduled.

Council also approved a resolution to amend the employment contract between the City Council and the City Manager, and provide the city manager with a three percent wage increase. Another passed ordinance designates 530 acres of city owned prairies as managed natural landscaped areas, which will exempt these areas from the city’s nuisance ordinances. Some of these prairies are within conservation areas and have been planted with native flora. This ordinance will exempt these prairies from the requirements to keep them cut. Council also approved a resolution authorizing the city manager to enter into an agreement with the Miami County Commissioners to share in the cost of resurfacing Peters Road from State Route 571 to the I-75 bridge. Though the project was originally budgeted for 2015, the Miami County Engineer reprioritized the project for completion this year due to the poor condition of the road, City Manager Jon Crusey said. Though the project has been moved up several years, there are sufficient funds in the budget to cover the City’s portion of the cost. A sum of $10,500 is available from the under-budget Franklin Street reconstruction project, as wells as $3,700 from the also under-budget alley seal coating project. Due to a mild winter, another $14,100 is available from unspent salt funds.

City’s website. Residents will be required to re-register every five years. Any person intending to engage in soliciting in Tipp City will be required show a valid ID and obtain a copy of the list, which will be available in the city’s offices, the police department, and online. “The Do-Not-Solicit list would be an effective tool to protect the citizens’ peace,” Caldwell said. “The DoNot-Solicit List would not affect people who are canvassing.” Canvassing, the distribution of ideas, pamphlets, and literature, or the collection of signatures for any cause, is not prohibited by the ordinance. Canvassing is defined in two ways: contact canvassing is in-person and face-to-face, while non-contact canvassing refers to leaving leaflets or pamphlets at residences. Canvassers also do not have to obtain a copy of the Do-Not-Solicit list. “But if someone puts a “do not solicit” sign in the window, it could be argued that they don’t want anybody knocking on their door,” Caldwell said. According to Caldwell, the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, local teams, school groups, and charitable organizations are also not prohibited from going door-to-door. The penalty for violating this ordinance would be a fourth-degree misdemeanor. The maximum jail sentence for a fourth-degree misde-

meanor is 30 days and the maximum fine is $250. New officer Nicholas Zimmer was sworn in Monday night by Mayor Dee Gillis. Zimmer, a Piqua High School graduate, received his Peace Officer Certification in 2008 and served as a reserve deputy with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office. According to Police Chief Tom Davidson, Zimmer distinguished himself throughout all the phases of the selection process. Council decided to hire a new patrolman at a study session last month after Chief Davidson explained that, due to recent retirements, the amount of overtime hours had increased 102 percent. Zimmer will fill the third of four vacant spots on the force. In other action, Council approved a wage and rate increase. The council adopted an ordinance increasing water rates from 2013 to 2016 in order to pay for the replacement of several older, undersized water lines alongside street resurfacing projects, despite “no” votes from council members Katie Black and Joe Gibson. The rates will increase six percent in both 2013 and 2014, and seven percent in 2015 and 2016. The affected streets are, in 2013, Warner (from Garber to Tippecanoe), Bowman (from Main to Plum), and Walnut (from Hyatt to First). In 2014, Bellaire (from Westedge to Bellair) and in 2015, Elm (from Sixth to the railroad tracks). And in 2016: First (from Plum to Main) and Seventh (from Broadway to South).

Olympics organizers insist early woes are minor LONDON (AP) — London Games officials dismissed concerns Tuesday over a lost bus driver, a scramble for more security guards and some rain-soaked venues — embarrassments that had one tabloid newspaper headline using the Olympic rings to spell out the word “OOPS!” Organizers said some of the complaints were exaggerated and tried to put the best face on the unfolding security debacle, as well as other concerns about the games, which start in 10 days. “Let’s put this in proportion,” London Olympics head Sebastian Coe told reporters. “This has not, nor will it, impact on the safety and security of these games. That, of course, is our No. 1 priority.” His efforts were undercut in Parliament, where the chief executive of the G4S security group, Nick Buckles, acknowledged that his company’s failure to recruit enough Olympic staff had embarrassed the entire nation. Some 3,500 British troops — including some just back from Afghanistan — had to be called in on short notice to fill the gap. Thousands more military personnel had already been assigned to the games. Buckles gave a groveling mea culpa on live TV as he was being questioned by angry lawmakers. “It’s a humiliating shambles for the country, isn’t it?” asked Labour lawmaker David Winnick. “I cannot disagree with you,” Buckles said. He was hard-pressed to

Some U.S. security and law enforcement officials had privately expressed concerns as early as last year that there might not be enough personnel for the London Games. The FBI is sending about two dozen agents to London to work on Olympic security, according to two U.S. government officials. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk publicly about

the plans. G4S will pay for its mistake, saying it expects to lose between 35 million pounds and 50 million pounds ($54 million to $78 million) on the contract, which is about 12 percent of its annual profit. Olympics minister Hugh Robertson said the deployment of soldiers at Olympic Park would give people “enormous reassurance.” Robertson, an army veteran, said athletes are “incredibly reassured to see the armed forces on the gate.” About 2,500 of the additional

personnel will be housed in East London at Tobacco Dock, a 19th century tobacco warehouse now used as an exhibition center, the military said. Outside Parliament, hundreds of London cabbies ignited new traffic jams as they protested their exclusion from special Olympic lanes set up across the city’s roads for buses and cars carrying athletes and other VIPs. As the world’s athletes flew into London on Monday — the first big day of Olympic arrivals — a few buses carrying them from Heathrow Airport took a wrong turn and got lost.

“OOPS!” headlined The Sun tabloid, using two of the interlocked Olympic rings in the word. “First day. First arrivals. It’s going to happen,” said Jayne Pearce, head of press operations. Still, the lost buses — one carrying Americans, the other Australians — touched a nerve. From the very start, London organizers have feared repeating the transportation woes of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, where one of the biggest problems was hiring bus drivers from outside the city who didn’t know their way around. Coe urged optimism, despite a Twitter storm that erupted when U.S. hurdler Kerron Clement took to the social networking site to express frustration with what he said was a four-hour bus ride from Heathrow to the athletes village. Coe said Clement’s bus journey actually took 2 1/2 hours and most athletes experienced no problems in reaching the village. “Apart from a misturning and a couple of tweets, we’re in pretty good shape,” Coe quipped. “The majority of athletes got in in good shape and on time. When they were met by our village mayor and chief executive, they were busily tweeting, saying how much they were enjoying village life. Ninety-eight percent of these journeys went without a hitch.” At Heathrow itself, the airport sailed through its heaviest passenger day ever with short immigration lines and plenty of help for Olympic travelers.

Positive financial news for the Miami East Local Schools was presented at its regular meeting Tuesday. Treasurer Lisa Fahncke reported to the board that the district ended its fiscal year with $310,225 in the black, largely due to its first collection of the district’s 1.75 percent earned income tax passed last November. “The levy that was passed was very beneficial to us, so much thanks to the community,” Fahncke said. Fahncke said overall revenue was up by $215,000 more than projected at the end of last fiscal year, largely due to the first receipt of the earned income tax. Fahncke also attributed the district’s classified and certified staffs retirement buyout, reduction in force, elimination of the sheriff’s office’s school resource officer and other reductions to help move the district to the black in the books. The district had anticipated to end the year with a negative balance of more than $25,000. Board member Mark Davis said the administration and the district’s

CASSTOWN staff did a great job controlling costs by “cutting corners, yet maintaining excellence.” Board president Kevin Accurso said the district’s financial “situation is looking better” with a “total team effort” but the district still will need to make sacrifices despite the luck of its first earned income draw. “We’re not out of the woods by far and we’re not going back to the way things were — we’re moving forward,” Accurso said. Fahncke said the district is still under “fiscal caution” under the direction of the Ohio Department of Education and said “there’s some light” through the “panacea” that was the district’s financial forecast of late. The board also approved the final resolution to place a renewal of a 3.5-mill property tax levy on the Nov. 6. ballot. The levy was first passed in 1985. Fahncke said the levy generates $380,723 per year in operating funds for the district, according to the county auditor’s office. “It’s a renewal with no additional (taxes),” said board member Rusty

Miller. “It’s necessary for operating.” Dr. Todd Rappold reported to the board that the new high school has received a LEEDGold certification for its energy efficiency. “Gold is at the top,” Rappold said, noting it was the district’s intention to strive for “Platinum” certification, yet Gold certification exceeds it. Rappold said it was “green energy” implementation of geothermal heating and cooling, solar energy panels, solar water heaters, high-efficiency lighting and other plans which garnered the award for the new high school. “It’s outstanding news,” Rappold said. “Going green does save money at the same time, as well.” Rappold also said the board will begin the “close-out” process with the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission, which will take up to six months or more. Once the close-out of the books for the new high school is done, the board will discuss how it will return its portion of the $1 million cost savings back to the district’s tax payers.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP San Francisco Chronicle on the economy: If you were to chart jobless numbers over the past three years, it would be flat-lining right now at a low point. Some 12.7 million Americans are looking for work, and in June only 80,000 landed jobs, a rate that barely keeps up with population growth. The picture, in other words, is bad and unlikely to change much. Between now and the November election, there will be four more such monthly reports to see if the 8.2 percent unemployment rate improves. Don’t bet on it. The factors are well known. The Eurozone economies are sickly and won’t revive soon. Major economies such as China and Brazil are slowing too. The United States, by far the biggest and most diverse, can’t escape untouched. Add homegrown troubles to the list. The Federal Reserve, having dropped bank borrowing rates to near zero, is scrambling for more answers, which it may introduce in August. Another major obstacle is the “fiscal cliff” deadline of January when Bush tax cuts will expire and huge trims in federal programs are due — barring a deal to sidestep this monumental disruption.

The self-administered OraQuick test detects the presence of HIV in saliva using a mouth swab. It should be available in 30,000 pharmacies, grocery stores and online retailers this fall, an availability that stands as another milestone and tool in treatment. About 50,000 Americans are infected with HIV each year; about 20 percent of the 1.2 million Americans with HIV do not know they have the disease, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates. These numbers make the need for accessible testing all the more apparent. The FDA has been considering the mouth swab test since 2005. It is unfortunate it took this long when the technology has been available for years. OraSure Technologies representatives have yet to announce a price for the test, but said it will be under $60, so as not to deter high-risk people who may want to take multiple tests a year. The cost will also cover a 24-hour toll-free call center for questions, counseling and medical referrals. In the meantime and in the future, the same rules apply: Practice safe sex and do not share needles if you are going to use drugs. Get tested if you may have been exposed — knowledge truly is power when it comes to your health. Though the OraQuick test is a remarkable development for diagnosis, what we really need is to prevent the disease from taking hold in the first place.

DOONESBURY

My time here has impacted me ‘for good’ I have a favorite musical and in that musical is one of my favorite quotes. As any of you would guess, I am going to apply it here. It comes from the Broadway musical “Wicked.” It’s the story of the witches before “The Wizard of Oz.” As the wicked witch and the good witch become friends, they sing a song together called “For Good.” I have used it before, but it is just too good not to use again. The lyrics in the song are, “I’m limited; just look at me. I’m limited, and just look at you. You can do all I couldn’t do. I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason. Bringing something we must learn, and we are led to those who help us most to grow if we let them, and we help them in return.” Toward the end it says, “Because I knew you, I have been changed for good.” For those who don’t know, this will be my last week with the Troy Daily News. My boss, my co-worker Natalie and I all decided I will still write my columns and write on every other Wednesday so that Natalie can express her words of wisdom with the world as well. I am ecstatic and delighted with my new path at Up and Running but have some sadness as I leave a new family behind. As I told Fong, I will still come around but I couldn’t fight with him

Katie Yantis Troy Daily News Columnist as he said “It is never the same again though after they (those who leave) part ways with the paper.” In complete honesty, I would love to tell stories and dirty little secrets about my friendships with everyone here, but I have a tendency to write too long from week to week and Fong gets mad anyway, so my ability to be able to do that would be slim to none. So I will just say this: even though it is coming to an end, my time here at the Troy Daily News has been nothing less than memorable, astounding and everything I thought it would be when I was going into college and talked about how awesome it would be to work at my hometown newspaper. Little did Fong know, when he wrote a story about me my sophomore year — being a camp counselor in the middle of nowhere in North Carolina — did he know I would later be one of his peons.

— Jack Scudmore West Milton

I came here with some experience from a prior paper, but my lessons learned here have been huge. More than grammar and AP style, my lessons learned here go beyond where to put commas, how to use “also” and when to use “which” versus “that.” Sure, my writing has improved thanks to the many, many, many markings by Fong, Jim and Mel, but as my co-worker Twin pointed how, my life has improved as well. I have had so many life-changing conversations with everyone here. We really are like a family here, and when one hurts, we fall in. From trials and tribulations to birthdays and celebrations, we have done it all together for the past two years. In addition, whether we agree or disagree, we do it with respect and on rare occasion, when the lines are crossed, an apology follows and we go right back to laughing our faces off. The dungeon as I so dearly call our office here in the bottom of the TDN building with its dark lighting and lack of windows has been a blessing. My relationships with each person are starkly different, but have all impacted my life in different ways. I do have to give Jim Davis a special thank you. There were mornings, days and nights when I don’t know what I would have done without him

by my side. I worked most closely with him for the past two years. Jim, you have become my buddy, my crazy buddy and I will always cherish our laughs and our fun and even serious conversations as well! Another special shout out is to my good friend Tweb (Tony Weber)! I don’t know what I would have done without your encouraging words and prayers. Thank you for inviting me to spend time with your family at church and listening to God telling you to be such a special part of my life. The lyrics from “For Good,” really do apply to my time here at the TDN. I was limited and my family here has taught me so much. I have grown and have been changed for good and will be better for it for the rest of this lifetime. My only prayer is that I hope that I have done the same for them. The memories go on, and all of you are so important to me! Fong, Mel, Jim, Tony, Kathy, Twin, Natalie, Josh, Colin and Dana, thank you! “It well may be that we will never meet again in this lifetime, so let me say before we part, so much of me is made from what I learned from you. You’ll be with me like a handprint on my heart.” Now, I’m off and running. Katie Yantis will begin appearing every other Wednesday in the TDN.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Consider a paternity test to be on the safe side Dear Annie: I have been married to an amazing woman for two years. I work away from home, and she manages to take care of everything and work full time. She also is a caregiver for her mother, and for this reason, we have decided to put off having children. I have a 4-year-old son with my ex. I pay regular child support, but until recently, I haven't been able to see much of him because of my schedule. Also, my ex is uncooperative. I recently found out some disturbing things about my son's home environment, and my family has suggested I ask for full custody. The problem is that there always has been speculation about whether the boy is really my biological child. My wife says she prefers to know he's mine before she undertakes such a huge responsibility. She will be raising the boy by herself while I am working out of state for months at a time. But, Annie, I'm not sure I really want to know whether this is my child. I love him regardless, and if tests prove he isn't my son, I will never see him again. Is it fair of me to ask my wife to raise the boy anyway? — Still His Dad Dear Still: This is your son, legally if not biologically. While it is asking a lot of your wife to take on this responsibility, we hope she will do so not only for your sake, but for the boy's. He needs a stable mother. Please look into getting some child care assistance for her so she isn't overwhelmed and resentful. But you should also get a paternity test. If this child is not yours, he should have his full medical history. Dear Annie: My husband's 35year-old daughter, "Effie," has a college degree, but has never held a job. My husband sends Effie most of his Social Security check each month and also pays her credit card bills, which means he is now in debt to the tune of $10,000. When Effie visits, she makes a mess of the house and is disrespectful to me. She somehow manages to take several vacations a year. Now she wants my husband to foot the bill for an expensive wedding, and he's agreed. He also agreed to continue supporting her after she marries. Because the wedding is in our state, Effie wants to stay in our house for several weeks before the wedding. I don't think I can take it. My husband is entirely in her corner and believes his relationship with her is perfectly normal. He's been unwell, and I hate making things worse for him, but I can't hold in this anger and disappointment much longer. I keep asking myself whether I'd be better off without him, but I don't know the answer. — Torn in Tallahassee Dear Torn: Many parents find it difficult to cut the financial apron strings, and divorced parents often are particularly indulgent in an attempt to compensate. This hurts the kids in the long run, creating dependence and prolonged adolescence. Nonetheless, if your husband refuses to change his tactics with Effie, there is nothing you can do about her. Counseling is often helpful, but you also might consider taking your own vacation while Effie is in your house. Dear Annie: I was surprised that "Single" wrote in saying he has trouble meeting women who don't have a lot of baggage. I am a single parent with two amazing children, and I have the same problem. Men on Internet dating sites all seem to be infatuated with the physical side of the relationship, which is secondary to me. I want a decent guy who is willing to be my friend first. In five years, my children will be out of the house, and I would love to have an established relationship going into the empty nest syndrome. — Patient in Arizona Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HINTS FROM HELOISE

How long will fresh olives keep in the refrigerator? Dear Heloise: I’ve enjoyed your column for years, and I trust your expertise. We buy olives at the olive bars of high-end grocery stores and use the takeout containers to bring them home. When should they be tossed out? My husband insists that since they are cured and brined, they are good for weeks. I’ve noticed that they seem to change color after seven days, at which time I refuse to eat them. Since they’re expensive, I’d appreciate your guidance. Thanks! — D.J.F., via email Happy to help, and I buy olives from the olive bar, too, as I’m an olive lover! The short answer is that as

Hints from Heloise Columnist long as you keep them in the liquid they came in (typically a brine or water-based solution), they are safe to eat, stored in the refrigerator, for a month or two — if they last that long! If you buy olives from an olive bar, be sure that the turnover of new olives is often. Olive colors will vary, but try to purchase firm olives with

enough brine to keep them covered and moist. — Heloise STORING MUSTARD Dear Readers: Mustard is a must to have on hand, and there are so many tasty ones! But where do you store it — in the refrigerator or the pantry? Manufacturers recommend that mustard goes into the refrigerator after opening for the best flavor. However, since there are no ingredients in mustard that can “go bad” without refrigeration, the counter or pantry is just fine! — Heloise ITALIAN-DRESSING HINTS Dear Heloise: I love to experiment in the kitchen, and

one of the staples I always keep on hand is Italian-style salad dressing. Here are some of the ways I use it in everyday cooking: I marinate chicken in the dressing and then grill it on the outdoor grill or bake it in the oven. I take cooked pasta, some chopped tomatoes and peppers (red, orange and yellow), and toss it with a little mayonnaise, then add enough dressing to coat. Let chill in the refrigerator before serving. Finally, I love baked potatoes. Instead of all the fattening butter and sour cream, I keep a small dish of dressing to dip the potato in. — Karen W. in Pennsylvania

BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, July 19, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Today’s New Moon is an excellent opportunity to think about how you can improve your relationships with family members. You also might think about how to improve where you live. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is the best day of the year to think about your style of communicating. Are you clear and gentle in your communication? Do you really listen? How can you improve? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Each New Moon is an opportunity to make resolutions. Today’s New Moon urges you to look at your money and possessions. Do you take care of what you own? Do you respect money? CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The only New Moon in your sign all year is here today. Take a look in the mirror and ask yourself what you can do to improve your image. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) It’s easy to get caught up in external, busy affairs, money, events and socalled success. But what about your spiritual world? This counts, too. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This might be the best day of the year to think about how to make your hopes and dreams become a reality. What are your hopes and dreams for the future? LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Today’s New Moon is a good day to think about your life direction in general. Are you headed where you really want to go? SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) What further education or training can you get to improve your job or enrich your life? It’s never too late to learn. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might have to compromise with the values of others simply because your values do not agree with theirs. This is a big step, but it’s probably necessary. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) The only New Moon that is opposite your sign all year is here today. This is your chance to resolve to improve your relationships in some way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) What can you do to improve your job, how you do your job or your attitude toward your job? After all, you do want to be happy in your work, right? PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) It’s important to remember to play as well as to work. (We lived in a workdriven society.) Do you give yourself enough time for play and creative leisure? YOU BORN TODAY When younger, you’re prone to mood swings; however, by cultivating self-awareness, you eventually develop a sophisticated grace to your movements and speech. Because you’re always trying to improve yourself, you look to heroes around you and admire certain people. Work hard to build or construct something in the coming year, because your rewards soon will follow.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Wednesday, July 18, the 200th day of 2012. There are 166 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 18, 1982, Guatemalan soldiers aided by members of civilian patrols stormed the highland village of Plan de Sanchez in search of leftist guerrillas, killing some 200 people. (In July 2005, the government of Guatemala accepted responsibility for the massacre,

and apologized.) On this date: • In A.D. 64, the Great Fire of Rome began. • In 1536, the English Parliament passed an act declaring the authority of the pope void in England. • In 1610, highly influential Italian baroque artist Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio died in Porto Ercole at age 38. • In 1792, American naval hero John Paul Jones died in

Paris at age 45. • In 1872, Britain enacted voting by secret ballot. • Today’s Birthdays: Former South African President Nelson Mandela is 94. Former Sen. John Glenn, D-Ohio, is 91. Skating champion and commentator Dick Button is 83. Movie director Paul Verhoeven is 74. Musician Brian Auger is 73. Singer Dion DiMucci is 73. Actor James Brolin is 72. Baseball executive Joe Torre is 72. Singer Martha Reeves is 71.

Ark. corn crop looks good, but harvest will tell water corn on a seven-day cycle, but they had to speed that up amid the drought to a six-day or five-day cycle. Growers who didn’t get enough water to their corn at the right time may find their yield come up short, Welch said. “We normally do well in high temperatures as long as we can keep the irrigation constant with the crop,” he said. “Counting the kernels around and up and down the cob, it looks promising at this point.” Arkansas growers planted more corn this year than cotton for the first time in decades. Corn prices were good heading into the year and they have improved with the drought in the Midwest claiming large segments of the nation’s crop. But most of the state’s farmers locked in prices for at least part of their harvest at the beginning of the year. “If we knew what was going on we could be rich people, but you never do,” said Wes Kirkpatrick, who heads Desha County’s extension service. “You couldn’t have predicted the drought in the Midwest.” Jefferson County farmer Ernest Heidelberger, who has 5,000 acres of corn, said Tuesday that he began harvesting eight days ago “but I haven’t done much in

it was not without cost, maybe 20 to 30 percent more on irrigation than we normally do,” he said. Arkansas growers, mainly in the Delta in the eastern part of the state, planted 660,000 acres of corn this year compared to 580,000 acres of cotton, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service. A year ago, Arkansas farmers planted 680,000 acres of cotton and 560,000 acres of corn. In 1980, growers planted cotton on 700,000 acres and corn on only 60,000 acres. Corn prices have improved since many Arkansas growers locked in prices for all or part of their crop at the start of the growing year. But no matter the conditions, the fate of the Arkansas crop doesn’t affect corn’s price.

That helps growers avoid worms and other pests, but Welch said getting the crop harvested early removes risk. August is the time with the greatest potential for damage by pests. Mike Hamilton, extension agent for the division in Poinsett County, predicted that corn would be a significant crop in Arkansas’ future. His county has about 25,000 acres of corn planted — nearly twice as much as in recent years, he said. “They (the farmers) are taking pretty good care of it. They’re liking the corn. It’s fast,” Hamilton said. Corn is also a good crop to use in rotation, he said. “It’s a good builder of our soil. Our growers aren’t isolated to one crop or another. They use rotation (which makes for) better yields across the board,” Hamilton said. Kirkpatrick noted that the harvest wasn’t quite in the clear considering the season’s unpredictable weather. “We could have a hurricane come in and knock it all down,” Kirkpatrick said.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Harvest is already under way in some Arkansas corn fields, allowing farmers to avoid the potential pest or weather damage that can comes in August, though experts said Tuesday it isn’t yet clear how strong the yield will be after two months of drought. Farmers largely had good luck during the growing season, including the warm spring that enabled them to plant early so the crop could be harvested this month. Southern rust hasn’t gotten a significant foothold since the fungus flourishes in high humidity, which hasn’t been a problem in the summer drought. Most growers irrigate so their corn and other crops have been able to weather an oppressive heat wave and more than two months of dry conditions. However, the heat may have prevented some corn from fully developing. “We had temperatures of 100 to 105 degrees in the past several weeks and that can affect grain fill,” said Jeff Welch, who heads Lonoke County’s office for the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service.

Back to his roots

Reds call up RHP Redmond CINCINNATI (AP) — he Reds are still trying to figure out how to cope with the loss of first baseman Joey Votto, who had surgery Tuesday for torn cartilage in his left knee and will be sidelined for three to four weeks. Their initial move was to replace him with a pitcher, giving themselves a backup plan in case Johnny Cueto’s blister bothered him during his start Tuesday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Beyond that, the NL Central leaders aren’t sure how they’ll try to replace one of the league’s top hitters for up to a month. “You’re bombarding me with questions that I really don’t have answers to right now,” manager

Former football star to work with youths in Troy BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor fong@tdnpublishing.com

TROY

On a weekend that features a number of former Troy High School football players, one will loom larger — literally and figuratively — than all the rest. The fourth-annual Kris Dielman Football Camp — featuring Dielman, a Troy High School graduate and recently retired National Football League star — will take place from 6-8 p.m. Thursday and Friday at Troy Memorial Stadium. It is part of a weekend filled with activities to benefit the Troy Football Alumni

Association’s scholarship fund. “Every year it gets better and better,” Troy High School football coach Scot Brewer said of the camp. “Kris does such a great job — he’s really just a big kid himself. He does a nice job coaching them up. He has a reputation not just on a Troy level, but throughout the whole country. It’s awesome that kids in Troy get this experience. Kris is so humble and so down to Earth — unlike most sports stars today — this is a chance for him to get back to his roots. It’s something he loves doing.” Dielman is a 1999 Troy High

School graduate. After earning All-Ohio honors at Troy, Dielman played at Indiana University, where he earned AllBig Ten honors. He spent nine years playing for the NFL’s San Diego Chargers and was selected to play in the Pro Bowl four times. He retired from the NFL earlier this year. The cost of the camp — which is open to children in grades 2-6 — is $30. Campers who have not already pre-registered are asked to show up at 5:30 p.m. Thursday to register. Dielman’s football camp is just one of several events planned to benefit the Troy

Reds pitchers shine Cueto ignites 4-0 blanking of D-Backs CINCINNATI (AP) — Righthander Johnny Cueto showed no significant problem from his finger blister during six shutout innings Tuesday night, and Ryan Ludwick hit a three-run homer that sent the Cincinnati Reds to their first victory without Joey Votto, 4-0 over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Votto had surgery earlier in the day to repair torn cartilage in his left knee, sidelining the former National League MVP for up to a month. Cueto (11-5) threw 105 pitches, an indication that a blister he developed on his right index finger last week wasn’t bothering him. He gave up four hits and

walked four. Aroldis Chapman came on with two aboard and two outs in the ninth and fanned Aaron Hill on four fastballs the last one 101 mph for his 14th save in 18 chances. Arizona’s Trevor Bauer (1-2), the first of the 2011 amateur draft picks to reach the majors, had the roughest time in his four starts so far. The 21-year-old pitcher lasted only three innings, gave up four runs, walked five, threw two wild pitches and had an errant pickoff throw.

NFL opposes Vilma hearing

Control not an issue

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Jonathan Vilma’s hearing as he attempts to delay or overturn his season-long suspension has been moved up a week to July 26. A U.S. District Court judge in Louisiana granted Vilma’s motion VILMA Tuesday, although Vilma sought a hearing for Thursday. The Saints open training camp next Tuesday. On Monday, Vilma’s attorneys asked Judge Helen G. Berrigan to hear their request for a

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Matt Moore won despite control issues, Carlos Pena homered and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Cleveland Indians 4-2 on Tuesday night. Moore (6-6) allowed two runs and three hits, but walked five in five-plus innings. The rookie lefthander was coming off a five-walk in 4 2-3 innings loss at Cleveland on July 7. Pena hit a two-run homer and Luke Scott had an RBI triple off Josh Tomlin (5-6) as the Rays took a 3-0 first-inning lead. Tomlin gave up four runs and seven hits in 5 23 innings. Moore was pulled after giving up a leadoff walk in the sixth to Carlos Santana. Wade Davis entered and got three quick outs, including Shelley Duncan’s double play. Davis and Joel Peralta each threw 1 1-3 hitless innings. Burke Badenhop got an out before Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his 27th save and completed the four-hitter. Rodney gave up a twoout single to Casey Kotchman, but then got a fly to right from pinch-hitter Travis Hafner on the first pitch. Asdrubal Cabrera, mired in a 1-for-26 slide, opened the fourth with single for the Indians’ first hit. After Moore issued consecutive walks to Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley, Jose Lopez cut the deficit to 3-1 on a sacrifice fly. The Rays starter avoided further damage by striking out Santana and getting a flyball from Duncan. Kipnis made it 3-2 on a run-scoring single in the

temporary restraining order before the Saints’ training camp opens. Vilma was suspended by Commissioner Roger Goodell for his role in the team’s bounty program. He also has sued Goodell for defamation. E a r l i e r Tuesday, the league filed a claim that the New Orleans linebacker did not “exhaust the dispute resolution procedures” in the collective bargaining agreement.

Reds ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 his hitters out of a collective slump. It worked 13 hits in a 5-3 win over the Reds on Monday night. He kept the same top five hitters in the batting order, but got different results with Cueto on the mound. Cueto had his start pushed back two days after he developed a blister while throwing in the bullpen. The Reds were concerned that he might not get very deep into the game and called up Todd Redmond to have another pitcher available in the bullpen, just in case. Cueto wore long sleeves on a humid, 96degree evening and was crisp at the outset. His control faded in the middle innings, but was still good enough to get him out of bases-loaded, twoout threats in both the fifth and sixth innings. The Reds scored an unearned run in the first

inning with Bauer’s help. Drew Stubbs walked, Zack Cozart reached on shortstop Stephen Drew’s error, and the runners pulled off a double steal. Stubbs scored when Bauer threw a wild pitch that bounced in front of the plate one of several that didn’t make it nearly far enough. The bad moments were just beginning for the rookie. He walked two more in the third and threw wildly on a pickoff throw. He knocked Ludwick on his back with an up-andin first pitch. Ludwick hit the next one into the upper deck in left field for a 4-0 lead, extending Great American Ball Park’s streak to 70 straight games with a homer. It’s the longest such streak since Coors Field had 80 consecutive games with a homer from 2002-03.

He decided to have the surgery now rather than try to keep playing with the injury, which could get worse over time. Baker had a long talk with him about it Monday night. The Reds put Votto on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday and called up righthander Todd Redmond from Triple-A Louisville. The Reds got Redmond from Atlanta on Saturday for shortstop Paul Janish in a swap of minor leaguers. Redmond was with Triple-A Gwinnett playing against Louisville when the trade was completed.

Larkin likely to fight his emotions COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) — When Barry Larkin takes the podium to speak at his Baseball Hall of Fame induction, his emotions likely will be off the charts. Not only will his mother and father be front and center, his teenage daughter, Cymber, will sing the national anthem Sunday. “I’m really excited about it. It’s definitely something special, but I’ll be nervous as heck for her,” the former Cincinnati Reds shortstop said Tuesday on a conference call. “I’ve heard just about everybody in the world is stopping by.” Larkin, who retired after the 2004 season with a .295 career average, 2,340 hits, 1,329 runs scored and 379 stolen bases, was elected this year on his third try, receiving 495 votes (86.4 percent). He’ll be inducted along with the late Ron Santo, a star third baseman for 15 years with the Chicago Cubs and a longtime broadcaster for the team after he retired in 1974. Santo died in 2010 at age 70. Larkin, whose father, Robert, coached him in several sports, was an honor student and a two-sport standout in his senior year at Cincinnati’s Moeller High School. Although he wanted to go to college, Larkin said he was torn because his hometown Reds drafted him in the second round of the 1982 draft, and they offered more than his family ever dreamed of. “They were throwing money at me that we had not seen,” he said. “That was really the tough part for me. I remember asking my mom and dad, ‘You guys need this money? Do you want this money?’ They were like, ‘No!’ Once they said no, it was very easy for me to go to college.” So, Larkin went to Michigan on a football scholarship to play for coach Bo Schembechler’s Wolverines. But Larkin’s dream of becoming a standout defensive back was doused when Schembechler redshirted him as a freshman, and he quickly gravitated toward baseball. Much to the chagrin of an incredulous Schembechler, Larkin walked away from football for good when his baseball skills improved during that year away from the gridiron, and he became a two-time All-American who appeared in two College World Series for the Wolverines. Still, despite his accomplishments, Larkin said his experience in Los Angeles on the 1984 U.S. Olympic baseball team spurred him to become great. He played in only three of the team’s five games and batted a woeful .143. “That really upset me, made me tell myself, ‘All right, I’m not playing around anymore. I’m going to be much better. I’m going to make them have to play me,’” Larkin said. “I think that’s when it really clicked for me. After that, I felt like I got a lot better, a lot more focused.” Drafted again by the Reds in 1985, this time the fourth pick overall, Larkin finished seventh in the National League Rookie of the Year voting in 1986 despite playing just 41 games. In his speech on Sunday, Larkin likely will pay tribute to the man he replaced at shortstop Dave Concepcion and other former teammates like Buddy Bell who helped him adjust to major league life as a rookie. “When I got to the big leagues, I still needed some fine-tuning,” said Larkin, who, as a child and Cincinnati fan, practiced sliding headfirst like Pete Rose, wielded his bat like Tony Perez, and practiced one-hop throws to first base on concrete, imagining he was Concepcion. “My learning curve was pretty steep. Davey knew I was gunning for his job. I could not believe how much he welcomed me, accepted me and helped me.”

Penn State to respond to NCAA demand within days STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State said it will respond within days to the NCAA’s demand for information as the governing body decides whether the university should face penalties including a possible shutdown of its storied football program in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Penn State President Rodney Erickson said Tuesday he doesn’t want to “jump to conclusions� about possible sanctions after the head of the NCAA declared the so-called death penalty has not been ruled out. The NCAA is investigating whether Penn State lost “institutional control�

over its athletic program and violated ethics rules. The probe had been on hold for eight months while former FBI Director Louis Freeh conducted an investigation on behalf of the school’s board of trustees. Freeh’s 267-page report, released last week, asserted that late football coach Joe Paterno and three top officials buried allegations against Sandusky, the retired defensive coordinator, more than a decade ago to protect the university’s image. Sandusky was convicted last month of sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15year period. He awaits sentencing. Penn State, with the

results of its own investigation in hand, can turn its attention to the NCAA, Erickson said. “The NCAA has indicated that they’d like me to respond ‌ as quickly as possible now that we have the Freeh report,â€? he said. “So we’ve already started the process of starting to compose that response. We’ll do so over the course of the next few days and get that response back as soon as possible, and we’ll then engage in discussions with the NCAA.â€? In a PBS interview Monday night, NCAA President Mark Emmert said he’s “never seen anything as egregious as this in terms of just overall conduct and behavior inside a

university.� He said he doesn’t want to take “anything off the table� if there’s a finding that Penn State violated NCAA rules. The last time the NCAA shut down a football program was in the 1980s, when Southern Methodist University was forced to drop the sport because of extra benefits violations. After the NCAA suspended the SMU program for a year, the school decided not to play in 1988, either, as it tried to regroup. Erickson would not say whether he thought Penn State deserved to have its football program yanked. “Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here,� Erickson told The Associated Press as he conducted a round of

media interviews in his office on Tuesday. “Let’s wait for this process to unfold. President Emmert has said that the NCAA will take a deliberate and deliberative process in addressing this, so I don’t think we should jump to any conclusions at this point.� Schools often propose sanctions to the governing body. Erickson pointed out that Penn State has already given $2.6 million in bowl revenues to its new center for child abuse research and treatment and to the Pennsylvania Coalition against Rape, a group that operates rape crisis centers across the state. “We’ve already started

to impose sanctions in the sense that we took away $2.6 million of athletic department funds,� Erickson said. “Surely we’ll have to do more, but we’re already on that road.� Erickson also addressed the controversy swirling around the statue of Paterno outside Beaver Stadium, saying that no decision has been made on whether to take it down. “I’m still in the process of talking with members of my leadership team,� he said. “I’ll want to talk with members of the board and others. And we will make a decision and we will make the right decision based on what we believe is the best course of action for the university.�

Doping allegations again reign over Tour de France Schleck’s positive test threatens to overshadow Wiggins’ bid to win

Frank Schleck (middle) rides in the pack during the Tour de France cycling race with start in Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux and finish in Le Cap D'Agde, France on July 14. Sport governing body UCI says Schleck tested positive for banned substances, the diuretic Xipamide turned up in an anti-doping test on a sample from Schleck taken July 14. by 2:23. Defending champion Cadel Evans of Australia is fourth, 3:19 behind. Competitors in the 99th Tour had plenty of time to ponder the tricky 16th and 17th stages on the rest day, with the Pyrenees visible on the horizon from the medieval, palm tree-lined city of Pau. Wednesday’s stage runs through the so-called “Circle of Death� along four brutal climbs none more daunting than the 7,000-foot Tourmalet. On Thursday, the last summit finishes atop the 5,300-foot Peyragudes. Wiggins is talking a big game in his bid to become

Britain’s first Tour de France champion. He says Wednesday’s stage “isn’t any more difficult than any other stage we’ve done up to this stage, really.� Wiggins said the Tourmalet was nothing special. “It goes uphill like all the others, doesn’t it?� he said. The four renowned passes the riders will climb Wednesday are the Peyresourde, Aubisque, Aspin and Tourmalet, the highest point on this year’s Tour. The pack on Thursday must ascend the Col de Mente and Port de Bales before scaling Peyragudes.

“Generally, the Pyrenees are a bit harder than the Alps,� said U.S. cyclist Tejay van Garderen. “The roads are a bit rougher. They’re just a bit more taxing.� But the more immediate question for the whole pack was how it would surmount cycling’s latest positive test for doping this time at the heart of a well-known cycling family and one of its big-name teams. The RadioShack team said in a statement that it had decided to withdraw Schleck from the race, and said that the diuretic is not present in any medicine used by the team.

New York officially had until 11:59 EDT to decide whether to re-sign Lin, and The Times cautioned there is an “incredibly small� chance the decision could be reversed. Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan had the final say. Officials from both teams and Lin’s agent would not confirm that any decision was final. The Rockets had not been informed of a decision on Lin, whom they released last year.

then I’ll win major championships.� The trouble this year has been giving himself chances. If there are questions about the state of his game, look only at the trophies he won at Bay Hill, Muirfield Village and Congressional more wins than anyone on the PGA Tour, tied with Branden Grace of South Africa for most worldwide. But the majors have been a disappointment. Woods had his worst finish as a pro at the Masters (tie for 40th), then vanished on the weekend of the U.S. Open when he was tied for the lead after two rounds at The Olympic Club. He wins one week, he misses the cut the next week. What’s going on? “If I knew the answer, I’d tell you,� Woods said. “But I don’t. I just keep trying to work and keep trying to get better. And I’ve had a few wins this year, which is good. But also I’ve had a few poor performances, as well. So I’m just trying to get better, get more consistent. And that’s something I’m looking forward to in the future.� The immediate future is Royal Lytham & St. Annes. This will be his third time playing the links course, the most for any British Open except St. Andrews. Woods had a 66 in the second round in 1996 as an amateur, a day that convinced him he was ready to turn pro. He made an early charge Sunday in 2001 only to fall back with a triple bogey and tie for 25th, nine shots behind.

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England (AP) — Tiger Woods’ last trip to northwest England for the British Open ended in a two-shot win at Royal Liverpool. That was six years ago, and it seems even longer. It was his first major after the death of his father, and he sobbed on the shoulder of his caddie and his wife, both of whom are no longer with him. There was no discussion about No. 1 in the world because Woods’ point average was nearly double that of Phil Mickelson. Now it’s a matter of getting back. The good news for Woods is that the British Open is the first major since the 2011 Masters that he has a mathematical chance to return to No. 1 in the world. At this time a year ago, he was No. 19 and at home in Florida letting his leg injuries heal. Only it’s not that simple. Woods now has gone four years since winning his last major, and he conceded Tuesday that they are not getting any easier to win. Fifteen players have won the last 15 majors, the longest stretch without a multiple winner since 1993 to 1998. But when asked whether he was feeling any anxiety over when he will win another major, Woods simply shook his head. “I just try and put myself there,� Woods said. “I think that if I continue putting myself there enough times,

PAU, France (AP) — The RadioShack Nissan Trek team pulled Frank Schleck, one of the biggest names in pro cycling, out the Tour de France on Tuesday after he failed a doping test, threatening to overshadow Bradley Wiggins’ bid to win the three-week race in Paris this weekend. The 32-year-old rider from Luxembourg, who was third in last year’s Tour, left a police station in Pau where he had discussed the case with authorities after cycling’s governing body announced the positive test. The International Cycling Union, or UCI, said Schleck had tested positive for banned diuretic Xipamide in an anti-doping test conducted by a French anti-doping lab on a sample taken from him on July 14. It marked the second doping scandal to hit this Tour, and was another reminder of the doping cloud that has damaged the image of cycling and its biggest event for years. Schleck, the RadioShack leader, had been in 12th place overall 9 minutes, 45 seconds behind leader Wiggins going into the second and latter rest day on Tuesday. The revelation was likely to add stress on the crashand sickness-depleted pack, just as they were gearing up for two grueling days in the Pyrenees starting Wednesday. Wiggins, who is aiming to become Britain’s first Tour champion, leads fellow Briton and Sky teammate Christopher Froome by 2:05 and Vincenzo Nibali of Italy
