Celebrating in style Troy resident marks 102nd birthday Challenges await Colorado shooting victims Some of the victims fighting for their lives after being wounded in the movie-theater shooting rampage may face another challenge when they get out of the hospital: enormous medical bills without the benefit of health insurance. Members of the public, along with Warner Bros., the studio that released the Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises,” have contributed nearly $2 million to help victims, though it’s not clear how much of that will cover medical expenses. One family is raising money on its own online. See Page 9.

BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer uring his 102nd birthday celebration, Stephen Raynes offered some advice for leading a long, successful life: “Behave yourself and treat your neighbor like you would want him to treat you.” Surrounded by family and friends, the Troy resident celebrated his birthday at the Sterling House, where he’s lived for the past two months. With nary a wrinkle on his face, Raynes could easily pass for several decades younger. His daughter Edie Maury credits her father’s can-do spirit with helping him age gracefully. “He’s a people person. When you talk to him, he has your undivided attention,” Maury explained. “He says, ‘I want to treat people the way I want to be treated.’” Till recently, Maury lived across the street from her father. The special celebration kicked off at 2:30 p.m. Friday with Raynes riding in a 1929 Ford Model A, complete with rumble seat. Donning an Ohio State baseball cap, Raynes clearly enjoyed himself, waving from the passenger and honking the horn repeatedly while the car’s owner, Mike Wesco, drove. Born in Buffalo, W. Va., Raynes was the second of nine children, with his brother Clayton being the only surviving sibling today. Raynes, who worked as a pharmacist, was married for 65 years before his wife Pauline passed away. They had four children — Edie, Steve, Mike and BJ — three of whom were able to attend Friday. Raynes also has six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. After the car ride throughout the neighbor-



Soup kitchen proposal sparks debate BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer

A rezoning application at Wednesday’s Troy Planning Commission meeting drew much discussion, as the proposed rezoning from an office residential district to a local retail district would allow the St. Patrick’s Soup Kitchen to be moved from its present location at 419 E. Main St. Two property owners expressed concern that the potential move would diminish property values and compromise safety in their neighborhood. With two dissenting votes, Planning Commission members recommended the rezoning to council after choosing not to hold a public hearing. However, a public hearing will be hosted during council.

Too much tires means too much rubber to turn — but we ignored that rule,” Herron said. And Brukner would probably agree with Herron and his follow campers that some rules were made to be broken in the world of inventing.

Walnut St. said her neighborhood has already seen the negative effects of having several soup kitchens and charitable works located nearby. The soup kitchen would be moved a block from her home. “A lot of people in my neighborhood have been fighting this over and over again,” she said. “Now we’re going to have a soup kitchen smack dab in the middle of our neighborhood.” If the rezoning passes in council, the property

could also be used as a business, though St. Patrick’s is seeking to purchase the property, as its current soup kitchen is too small to meet the needs of the community. The proposed facility would be able to serve 150 people. Rayman’s next-door neighbor, Jean Melvin of 25 N. Walnut St., decided to save most of her comments for the upcoming council hearing, but she said, “I had two people call; I didn’t even hear about this until yesterday (Tuesday),” she said. Prior to discussion of the rezoning, commissioners approved demolition of the residential structure at 25 N. Mulberry St.

Question: Should the United States have stricter gun control laws?

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

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


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

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Savannah (Ga.) Morning News on Olympic athletes’ uniforms: U.S. lawmakers seemed shocked, shocked that U.S. Olympic athletes will be wearing uniforms that were made in China. Have they checked their own closets lately? These days, it’s tough to find many articles of clothing — not to mention athletic shoes — that are still made in the U.S.. Most companies have outsourced such work to manufacturers overseas, where labor costs are considerably less than in this country. Many of those lost jobs were in the South, where the textile industry was once a pillar in the region’s economy. Sad to say, they’re probably not coming back. But what is troubling is that the U.S. Olympic Committee apparently didn’t make much of an effort to see if it could find some spiffy duds made here. But here’s the rub. Ralph Lauren, the company that made the uniforms, apparently donated them to the USOC. The USOC is a private organization. It doesn’t have money to burn. It relies on corporate sponsorships and contributions. If Ralph Lauren wants to outfit America’s team and save the USOC a bundle, it’s tough to argue against it. The question, however, is whether the USOC did its due diligence in specifying ahead of time that it wanted clothing made in the USA. Companies can find U.S. workers for these jobs if they look hard enough. The Leader-Herald, Gloversville, N.Y. on soldiers’ pay: “Citizen soldiers” in the National Guard and ready Reserve are critical to our security. As recruiting incentives, the Pentagon provides double pay for days the citizen soldiers spend training (one weekend a month and two weeks during the summer). A day’s work nets two days’ pay. But if the troops are activated — perhaps for combat duty — they are paid at the regular rate. A day under fire gains them a single day’s pay. They receive some supplements, such as combat pay, but still take home less than if they were training. That’s illogical. The Pentagon has painted itself into something of a corner on the compensation issue. Pay cuts for training are not realistic. But neither is paying a man or woman more for learning to fire a rifle than for using it in combat. Obviously, at least for Guard and Reserve members sent into battle, the system should be changed. Pueblo (Colo.) Chieftain on Bush era tax rates: Political posturing was in full bloom in the Senate recently as Democrats and Republicans refused to vote on President Obama’s proposal to extend Bush-era tax rates but to allow them to rise on families earning $250,000 or more. The president’s position is clearly a populist attempt to shore up his base on the left heading into the November election. Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., vowed the Senate would vote on the plan before the August recess. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, RKy., replied that he would agree to arrange for votes “just as soon as the majority leader produces a bill to show us what tax increases they have in mind.” There also are indications that the president wants more increases than the one for higher earners. A large proportion of the taxpayers falling into the above-$250,000 category are owners of small businesses, many of whom file as individuals or as Subchapter S payers. But small business is historically the largest creator of new jobs, and the June jobs report shows this economy continues to fall behind on new employment. Moreover, pre-Bush tax rates on those “millionaires and billionaires” the president excoriates would be only enough to fund current federal spending for eight days. They would not pay down the national debt. What’s needed in Congress is a rational rewrite of the federal tax code that would get rid of many write-offs in exchange for a broader base of taxation, something the president’s Simpson-Bowles Commission recommended and which the president immediately sent to the round file.

Pfc. Rice’s incredible story is one worth telling Everything in my soul told me to put down my notebook and pen and reach across the kitchen table to give the grieving mother a hug. Every ounce of humanity I had in my body told me my first duty was to try to comfort an inconsolable mother who had just lost her son while he was serving his country thousands of miles away from home. But I didn’t. I dutifully listened, writing down her every word. Her heroic son had a story to tell — and I was one of a few people in the world who would receive the honor of telling it. So I did what reporters are frequently called upon to do when tragedy strikes. I did my job. In the past two months, I’ve had several people ask me why we in the media choose to spend so much of our time reporting bad news. It’s not because we want to. It’s because we have to. Our job, first and foremost, is to inform our readers about the world they live in — both good and bad. When I received the email from the U.S. Department of

David Fong Troy Daily News Executive Editor Defense Sunday afternoon alerting me to the fact Army Private First Class Jeffrey Rice, a Troy High School graduate, had been killed while serving his country in Afghanistan, it was exactly the email I had hoped I would never have to read — but knew in the back of my mind so long as I was working at the newspaper and the United States was fighting battles overseas, I probably would. So I did whatever I do when any tragedy strikes. I first let the news sink in and then said a quick prayer for those so adversely affected, then I immediately focused on doing my job. It was the exact same reaction I had during the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. I said

— Evelyn Jones Piqua

a quick prayer, kissed the ones I love the most and headed into work. Even though I was still working in the sports department then, I knew there was work to be done. It was only after all the stories were written and all the pages had been sent to the printer did I allow myself to grieve. As I was sitting there Monday morning listening to Sandy Wheelock, Jeff’s mother, talk about her son and how much he loved his family and his country, I knew immediately the tears would have to wait. Our readers needed to know what a special young man Pfc. Rice was — and I wouldn’t be able to do that without hearing every word his mother had to say. Jeff’s story was one that not only deserved to be told — it needed to be told. He was a young man who put his family and his country first. He was a young man who — by all accounts — did whatever it took to help those in need. The City of Troy and the surrounding community needed to know how much he gave both to those who knew him and those

who didn’t know him. To his mother and family, I apologize if I came off as unfeeling or as someone who was there solely to do a job. Please understand that my heart was breaking with every word as his mother told me how he quit football, a sport he loved, to take care of his ailing father, how much he adored his nieces and let them swing on his outstretched arms and how he always was there to help his favorite aunt lift heavy boxes or complete whatever project needed to be done. I was amazed by his mother’s courage as she spent an hour speaking about her son. It’s pretty obvious where her son got his seemingly endless resolve. From what his mother told me, Jeff was an incredible young man. By holding off on the tears until his mother was finished speaking, I hope I was able to do him and his story justice. Because Pfc. Jeffrey Rice deserved nothing less.

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — George Jefferson was a bigot. A loudmouth. Rude. Obsessed with money. Arrogant. And yet he was one of the most enjoyable, beloved characters in television history. Much of that credit belongs to Sherman Hemsley, the gifted character actor who gave life to the blustering black Harlem businessman on “The Jeffersons,” one of TV’s longest running and most successful sitcoms particularly noteworthy with its mostly black cast. The Philadelphia-born Hemsley, who police said late Tuesday died at his home in El Paso, Texas, at age 74, first played George Jefferson on the CBS show “All in the Family” before he was spun off onto “The Jeffersons.” The sitcom ran for 11 seasons from 1975 to 1985. With the gospel-style theme song of “Movin’ on Up,” the hit show depicted the wealthy former neighbors of Archie and Edith Bunker in Queens as they made their way on New York’s Upper East Side. Hemsley and the Jeffersons (Isabel Sanford played his wife) often dealt with contemporary issues of racism, but more frequently reveled in the sitcom archetype of a short-tempered, opinionated patriarch trying, often unsuccessfully, to control his family. Hemsley’s feisty, diminutive father with an exaggerated strut was a kind of black corollary to Archie Bunker a stubborn, highstrung man who had a deep dislike for whites (his favorite word for them was honkies). Yet unlike the blue-collar Bunker, played by Carroll O’Connor, he was a successful businessman who was as rich as he was crass. His wife, Weezie, was often his foil yet provided plenty of zingers as well. Despite the character’s many faults money-driven, prejudiced, temperamental, a boor Hemsley managed to make the character endearing, part of the reason it stayed on the air for so long. Much like O’Connor’s portrayal of Archie Bunker, deep down, Hemsley’s Jefferson loved his family, his friends (even the ones he relentlessly teased) and had a good heart. His performance was Emmy and Golden Globe nominated. “He was a love of a guy” and “immensely talented,” Norman Lear, producer of “The Jeffersons” and “All in the Family,” said after learning of his death. El Paso police said the actor was found dead at a home where neighbors said he’d lived for years, and that no foul play is suspected. The actor had been ill and died of natural causes, so no autopsy will be performed, according to Irene Santiago, a manager at the El Paso coroner’s office. She did not elaborate.

Try a delicious hobo supper We had a steady rain earlier this morning. It amounted to almost twotenths of an inch. Every little bit helps the grass, crops and gardens. Our grass and hay fields are looking a lot greener now. The gardens are looking better and the rain put off needing to water the garden today. The rainwater seems to boost the garden a lot more than when we water with a sprinkler. The first thing Joseph said when he woke up and heard it raining was, “Oh I am glad we don’t have to water the garden!” We have only one water sprinkler so they have to move it from one end of the yard to the other to get both gardens. They usually set a timer for a certain time and then move it on to the next area. Joseph is excited as he will be 10 tomorrow. He is more excited about this birthday because he’ll now get to sit with the big boys in church. In our community when they reach 10 years children don’t have to sit with their parents anymore during church services. Yesterday we had dinner at Emma and Jacob’s in honor of Emma’s 39th birthday which was on the 19th. Mother’s was the 18th and she would be 76 years now. Those birthdays of loved ones gone on before us are still always thought of. May she rest in peace and bless her for the wonderful mother and friend that she was. Saturday we butchered the 12 chickens we raised for fresh eating. I want to cut them up today and get them in the freezer. I will leave a few whole so we can do whole chickens on the grill one day. That along with baked potatoes on the grill make for an easy meal. Saturday we did something different on the grill. We made a hobo supper. I’ll share the recipe at the end of this column. We use vegetables out of our own garden. It is an easy supper as Joe grills fish to go with it. He also grilled one of the chickens that we had butchered earlier in the day. I think that was a big mistake because after butchering chickens that day the children said they can’t eat any right away. I remember my mother always going out to the chicken coop and chopping a few heads off and we would have them for the next meal. Back then it never bothered me until I


Lovina Eicher Troy Daily News Guest Columnist started doing the work. Although I don’t do the actual butchering myself, I decided to be braver than the children and taste a piece of the fresh chicken breast. I was managing okay until daughter Elizabeth teased me and asked if there was a feather on my chicken. That did it for me so I can’t blame the children if they need a few weeks to forget the butchering part. They did enjoy the hobo supper and the grilled fish. I had enough cucumbers that I could make 3 gallons of freezer pickles. Also 9 quarts of sweet and sour garlic dill pickles. We are now enjoying tomatoes, green beans, hot and green peppers, and red potatoes out of our garden. We lost the first few patches of sweet corn. We have another one coming along that we hope will make it. The others didn’t survive the drought. I want to express my sympathy to the family of Patricia Walmers. She has been a long time reader of this column and great friend to the family. Her death was a few weeks ago at age 86. Thanks to her son Andy for letting us know. The children have many books that she gave to them for their birthdays. We will miss the visits that we have had from her the last 10 years. Our children knew her as Grandma Pat. HOBO SUPPER 10 red potatoes, cut into chunks with skins left on 1 /2 cup onion, diced 1 /2 cup green peppers, diced 3 /4 cups sliced carrots 3 /4 cup celery 1 package of smoky links Seasoning of your choice Sliced cheese Mix all together except for the cheese. Divide into the amount you want for each serving and place onto tin foil. Wrap up and set up on grill for 10 minutes on each side. Open up foil and if potatoes are soft add a slice of cheese, rewrap and grill a few minutes or until cheese is melted.

Dinner and lunch cook once, eat twice The best dinners are those that not only are delicious in their own right, but that also leave ample leftovers that can be easily reworked into an equally delicious lunch the next day. As the father of a voracious 7-year-old boy and as a father who packs said voracious boy’s school lunch every day I’ve become a pro at these dinner-lunch combos. Any day that I can cook once and feed my kid twice is a very good day. The trick, however, is to make sure the lunches made from leftovers are fresh and don’t, well, taste like leftovers. But this doesn’t require a lot of work. A bit of imagination will take you far when it comes to reworking leftovers. This recipe for grilled hoisin pork tenderloin is one of my favorites for this. The dinner itself is simple and wonderful and can be prepped the morning before. At dinner, I just toss the marinated tenderloin on the grill along with a few vegetables and it’s good to go. The next day, I turn the leftover pork into barbecue pulled pork, which can be eaten on a bun or in a whole-wheat wrap. It also can be served warm or cold; my son loves it both ways. When I’m pressed for time, I spoon the cold pulled pork onto the bread, wrap it and toss it in his lunch box. When I have more time, I pack the bread separately, heat the pork and pack it in a thermos. He actually enjoys assembling the sandwich himself. And this can be done with grilled chicken leftovers, too. Just follow the simple directions below. GRILLED HOISIN PORK TENDERLOIN WITH CUMIN ONIONS The pork should marinate for at least 30 minutes, but the longer the better. I like to start it in the morning so it’s ready to go at dinner. You even could do it the night before. This recipe makes enough for 4 dinners, plus leftovers. It also makes 5 onions, assuming 4 for dinner and another to be used with the leftovers. Start to finish: 30 minutes, plus marinating Servings: 4 dinners, plus 2 lunches 9.4-ounce jar hoisin sauce 1 cup red wine 1/4 cup soy sauce 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon hot sauce

2-pounds pork tenderloins 5 large yellow onions 2 tablespoons olive oil Kosher salt and ground black pepper 1 tablespoon whole cumin seeds In a large zip-close plastic bag, combine the hoisin, wine, soy sauce, garlic and hot sauce. Seal the bag and gently shake to mix well. Add the pork tenderloins, then close the bag and gently turn to ensure the meat is well coated. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours. Trim the ends from the onions, then peel off the outer layer of skin. Place the onions in a second large zip-close plastic bag; add the olive oil, a bit of salt and pepper, and the cumin seeds. Seal the bag, then gently shake to coat evenly. Refrigerate until ready to grill the meat. When ready to cook, heat one side of the grill to medium-high, the other side to low. Using an oil-soaked paper towel held with tongs, oil the grill grates. Add the whole onions to the cooler side of the grill. Grill, covered, for 5 minutes. Turn the onions, then add the pork to the cooler side of the grill. Grill the

pork for 6 minutes per side. Remove the onions when they are very tender and the meat when it is nicely seared on the outside and reaches 145 F at the center. Transfer the pork and onions to a platter and let the meat rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the pork and serve with an onion.

LEFTOVER MAKEOVER: BARBECUE PULLED PORK SANDWICH The next morning, place any leftover pork in a large bowl. Use 2 forks to

tear and pull apart the pork into thin strands. Any leftover onions can be finely chopped, then added to the bowl. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of bottled barbecue sauce and mix well. If you like it spicy, a splash of hot sauce also could be added. For a cold sandwich, the pulled pork can spooned onto bread and packed in a lunch box (with a cooler pack). For a hot sandwich, microwave the pulled pork for 1 to 2 minutes, or until hot, then pack in a preheated thermos with bread packed separately. EDITOR’S NOTE: Food Editor J.M.

Cooking with wonton skins


There’s nothing wrong with showing a bit of skin. Especially if it’s steamy. Because while they may appear a rather mundane ingredient, wonton skins are an inexpensive and easy way to jazz up your cooking. Because wonton skins essentially are vehicles for containing other ingredients, their strength is their versatility. They can be filled with just about anything, from ground or chopped meat and vegetables, to cheese and sweet fillings. They also can be cooked any number of ways panfried, deep-fried, baked, steamed, even boiled. You also can cook them before you fill them. When using wontons to make dumplings, they need to be sealed shut

after being filled. You can fold the edges over onto themselves (like folding a sheet of paper in half); you can gather the edges together over the center (like a purse); or you can place a second wrapper over the first. Steamed Spicy Pork Dumplings Start to finish: 45 minutes Servings: 6 For the dumplings: 1 egg 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil 1 teaspoon hot sauce 1 pound ground pork 1/2 cup finely grated carrots 4 finely chopped scallions 1/4 cup chopped fresh

cilantro 8-ounce can water chestnuts, finely chopped 12-ounce package 3inch square wonton wrappers For the dipping sauce: 3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil 2 tablespoons rice vinegar 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro 1 teaspoon sugar Pinch red pepper flakes In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, hoisin, soy sauce, sesame oil and hot sauce. Add the pork, carrots, scallions, cilantro and water chestnuts, then mix well. One at a time, place 1 tablespoon of the pork mixture in the center of each wonton. Dunk your fingers in

water, then use them to wet the edges of the wrapper. Gather the edges of the wrapper over the filling, pinching them together to form a small purse. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers. In a large saute pan, bring about 1 inch of water to a boil. Set a bamboo or other steamer basket over the water, then lightly coat it with cooking spray. Working in batches if necessary, arrange the dumplings in the steamer (they should not touch), then cover and steam for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the dipping sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients. Serve the dumplings hot with the dipping sauce.





Talk to your grandparents and express your feelings

Today: 5 p.m.: Community Bulletin Board 7 p.m.: Midwest Crappie 9 p.m.: Mayor's Report

Dear Annie: I am 33 years old and fed up with how distant my family is. I am disappointed with my grandparents for the way they behave. I grew up around them, but they moved to Arizona when I was 19. I thought we were close, but it seems we are growing further apart. Sometimes they are in our town for several weeks, but we only hear from them once or twice. One would think they would set a better example for maintaining family ties. They recently came back for three weeks, and we didn't know they were in town until halfway through their trip. They took us out to eat and casually mentioned that they are taking my two aunts and two of the grandkids to a resort for three days. We weren't invited. In fact, whenever they are here, they focus all of their time and attention on one daughter and her kids and forget the rest of us. My grandparents are getting older and won't be around forever. I really want my daughter to meet all of her family while she has a chance. How do I change this? Is it even worth trying? It's not really the same if they call more often only because I demand it. — Donny Dear Donny: You should talk to your grandparents and tell them how much you miss them and how their favoritism is having a negative impact on your feelings and their relationship with your daughter. It's not a "demand." They cannot change their behavior if they are unaware of it. It may take some extra effort for them to remember this, and it's OK to prompt them when necessary. Also, don't hesitate to take the initiative whenever you want to speak to them. Dear Annie: I know this is a bit out of your league, but I don't know who else to ask. My son is a university student. His major requires that he take several math classes. In every class, the professor is his worst teacher of the semester. They don't explain anything, and they don't give feedback on tests or quizzes. As a result, he does poorly. I thought it was just my son or that university, but he now is taking a make-up math class at our local community college. He says the same thing is happening with the professor there. What is it about college math professors that makes them unfeeling, unhelpful and uncaring? Why can't universities get them to treat their students better and be more helpful? — Cape Coral, Fla. Dear Florida: While we are certain some math professors do not explain things as clearly as they could, when this happens with every professor, in every environment, we have to assume your son is more than a little math-challenged. As a college student, it is his responsibility to find a way to understand the material. Instead of blaming the professors, suggest to your son that he get some remedial math assistance. He should be able to find a tutor on campus. Dear Annie: "Disappointed" needs to grow up instead of complaining that she is now left to buy her own honeymoon lingerie because her bridesmaids haven't offered to host a shower for her. Oh, boo-hoo! It is not mandatory that anyone host a shower for her. Perhaps she chose really expensive bridesmaids dresses, shoes, etc., and her attendants are already financially overextended — and they are hosting a bachelorette party. But rather than focus on the positive, she prefers to be upset about the lack of a shower. Grow up, Bridezilla, and thank your bridesmaids for what they are doing for you. Buy your own honeymoon lingerie. A wedding is not about the gifts and the parties. — California Dear California: Yes, but you are being a bit hard on the bride. She wasn't demanding a shower. She was simply disappointed not to have one. Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HOW TO PLAY: Complete the grid so that every row, column and 3x3 box contains every digit from 1 to 9 inclusively. Find answers to today’s puzzle in tomorrow’s Troy Daily News. YESTERDAY’S SOLUTION:


Here’s a few hints to keep your bathroom safe Dear Readers: Kids can get into some mischief or trouble in the bathroom. Even adults need to be mindful. Here are some hints from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for keeping your bathroom safe and guest-friendly! • All medications should be labeled and in childproof containers in a cabinet, drawer or closet. • Rugs in the bathroom are a great idea for preventing slipping on tile or linoleum. • Keep all electronics, such as curling irons, electric razors and even hair dryers, unplugged and put away safely out of reach of moisture or kids. • Make sure you have a bathmat or grab bar. This is for you,

Hints from Heloise Columnist any guests who may shower and children. Slipping in the shower is no fun at all! For more safety hints, you can visit the CPSC’s website at or call 800-6382772. Stay safe and slip-free! — Heloise P.S. Take a good inventory of the bathroom and see if you can spot any problem areas. You

might be shocked. DUST BEGONE Dear Heloise: The best advice I got was from my grandmother. Back then, we did “spring-cleaning” — rolled up the rugs and took them out for a “beating,” cleaned all the windows inside, flipped mattresses and cleaned out cupboards, etc. We would always hear Grandma mumbling under her breath, “You fight dirt all your life, then they bury you in it.” So, I quit “fighting it.” We have so many work-saving hints from your articles that it isn’t necessary anymore. — Ginger D. in San Antonio How true! My mother said the same thing: “Clean, dust, scrub,

sweep, and the last thing they do is throw a shovelful of dirt in your face!” — Heloise STICKY-NOTE UPDATE Dear Heloise: I read in your column about a woman who writes on sticky notes the things she needs help with during social events she’s hosting. Her guests can pick from the notes what to help her with. I tried this last weekend, and it worked fabulously! It made the day so much more enjoyable for me, and my friends actually appreciated being able to help! There’s a downside, though. A couple of gals said that now that I ask for help, I can do these brunches more often! — Wendy R., Lake Forest, Calif.

It’s easy to think outside-the-box. However, avoid important decisions or signing important papers until tomorrow. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is a poor day to part with your money. Don’t spend money on anything other than food and casual entertainment. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Like yesterday, this is a wonderful day to entertain at home. Everyone wants to see you, because the Sun and Mercury are in your sign. Enjoy this time of domestic popularity. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Conversations with siblings, neighbors and daily contacts will be personal, warm and revealing. People are not withholding today. Quite the opposite: They’re ready to share. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Be careful with all financial deals today, because whatever you initiate will tend not to fulfill its purpose. That’s why this is a poor day to spend money (except on food). SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) People notice you now, because the Sun is at high noon in your chart. Therefore, be more conservative today because it’s easy to misjudge something and go overboard. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You’ll love learning anything new today; in fact, research of all kinds will appeal to you. Visit museums, art galleries and places where you can enjoy the beautiful creativity of others. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a popular day! Enjoy the company of others, especially in group settings. However, avoid agreeing to important commitments or deadlines. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) All social occasions will go extremely well today, because people feel relaxed and friendly. Wait until tomorrow to agree to anything important, especially if it involves a commitment on your part. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Try to do something different today. Shake up your daily routine. You’ll love learning something new or going someplace you’ve never been before. YOU BORN TODAY You’re so decisive that others often want you to make their decisions for them. This is because you appear strong, even intimidating at times. It’s important for you to find your true passion in life (both public and private) — then you can conjure up the courage to follow your bliss. In the year ahead, an important decision will rise. Choose wisely. Birthdate of: Leo “The Lip” Durocher, baseball manager; Maya Rudolph, actress; Alex Rodriquez, baseball player. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Indiana fairgrounds Coliseum upgrade to add new arena


Bonnie Kate Pourciau, 18, a victim of the Aurora movie theater mass shooting, speaks from her hospital bed Wednesday afternoon at the University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora, Colo.

Challenges await shooting victims DENVER (AP) — Some of the victims fighting for their lives after being wounded in the movie-theater shooting rampage may face another challenge when they get out of the hospital: enormous medical bills without the benefit of health insurance. Members of the public, along with Warner Bros., the studio that released the Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises,” have contributed nearly $2 million to help victims, though it’s not clear how much of that will cover medical expenses. One family is raising money on its own online. And three of the five hospitals that treated victims said Wednesday they will limit or completely wipe out medical bills. Some of the victims, however, still face a long recovery ahead and the associated medical costs without health insurance. There’s no exact count of how many of them don’t have insurance but statistics suggest many of them might not be covered. Nearly one in three Coloradans, or about 1.5 million, either have no health insurance or have coverage that is inadequate, according to a 2011 report by The Colorado Trust, a health care advocacy group. The highest uninsured rate was among adults between 18 and 34 and many of those injured in the shootings are in that age group.

State officials said they are not sure whether any of the victims qualify for emergency Medicaid assistance available to needy patients. Victims could also get financial assistance from a state program that helps people hurt during crimes, including lost wages and counseling. Among the uninsured victims of the movie-theater attack is a 23-year-old aspiring comic, Caleb Medley, who is in critical condition with a head wound and whose wife, Katie, gave birth to their first child, Hugo, on Tuesday. His family and friends said they have set a goal of raising $500,000 to cover his hospital bills and other expenses and were over halfway there on Wednesday. “All the money that is donated is going straight to Caleb, Katie and Hugo to help them with medical bills, getting back on their feet, help with the baby items,” friend Michael West said. “Anything and everything that they need.” Children’s Hospital Colorado announced it would use donations and its charity care fund to cover the medical expenses of the uninsured. For those who do have insurance, the hospital says it will waive all co-pays. “We are committed to supporting these families as they heal,” according to a statement from the hospital, which treated six shooting victims. HealthOne, which owns the Medical

Center of Aurora and Swedish Medical Center, also says it will limit or eliminate charges based on the individual circumstances of the patients. Those hospitals have treated 22 shooting victims. However, the company cautioned its policy may not apply to all doctors working in its hospitals. The other two hospitals, Denver Health Medical Center and University of Colorado Hospital, where Medley is, wouldn’t directly say whether they would assist shooting victims. However, they are the state’s top two safety net hospitals and provided combined $750 million in free care in 2011. Hospitals are required by federal law to stabilize patients during emergencies without regard to their ability to pay. “The issue most probably facing the hospitals and patients in a situation like Aurora is what comes after ‘stabilization,’” said Dr. Howard Brody, director of the Institute for the Medical Humanities at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and a frequent critic of excessive medical costs. “Many of these people I assume will need prolonged and expensive rehabilitation after their immediate injuries are dealt with, and that seems precisely what hospitals today are less and less willing to cover out of their own funds, and no law requires that they do so, as far as I am aware,” he said.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The $63 million renovation of the Indiana State Fairgrounds’ Coliseum complex will include adding a new 20,000-square-foot arena a top fair official calls the fairgrounds’ most important capital project in its 120-year history. State Fair Commission Chairman Andre Lacy tells The Indianapolis Star the new arena that will be linked to the Coliseum’s south side is intended to boost the fairgrounds’ annual revenues. He said the new arena will keep offerings such as public skating, youth hockey games and horse shows going while the Coliseum hosts concerts, circuses and other events. “This new arena is vital to the overall project,” Lacy said in a statement. The art deco-inspired Coliseum, which was built in 1939 as part of the New Deal’s Works Progress Administration, will be used for this year’s Indiana State Fair, which runs Aug. 3-19. But work on the building will begin Oct. 29 and it will be closed for the 2013 fair and open just prior to the 2014 fair, officials said. The project is being paid for through bonds payable with commission revenues. The Indiana State Fair Commission decided in January to permanently move its outdoor grandstand concerts indoors in the wake of last August’s stage collapse that killed seven people and injured dozens of others waiting at the grandstand for the start of a concert by country duo Sugarland. High winds ahead of thunderstorm toppled the stage rigging. The upgraded Coliseum will seat as many as 9,000 people, up from the current 1939 building’s 8,000-person capacity. The new arena,

meanwhile, will have bleacher seating for between 500 and 1,000 people. Fair officials said they expect the new arena to be completed by July 2013, a year before the entire renovation project is done. The current Coliseum is in need of extensive renovation to meet event requirements, improve operational efficiencies and comply with current building codes and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The renovation project also includes demolishing and rebuilding the Coliseum’s interior and building double-tiered seating. In addition, a new video scoreboard and a modern sound system will be installed. The Coliseum’s exterior will undergo minor changes to freshen up its appearance. It also will get a new name and a new sign because PepsiCo Inc. will no longer be the Coliseum’s title sponsor. Pepsi and fair officials could not agree on a new naming rights contract after about 20 years of Pepsi sponsorship. The Pepsi Coliseum sign remains atop the building for now, but fair officials said negotiations still are ongoing for another sponsor. Fair Executive Director Cindy Hoye has said money from a new naming rights contract should help pay for the renovation. The coliseum was the scene of a 1963 propane gas explosion that killed 74 people attending an ice skating show. The following year, the venue played host to The Beatles’ only Indiana concert. The building also was the original home of the Indiana Pacers when they won three American Basketball Association championships and the home of much of the state’s hockey history.

Too much firepower

Top-ranked U.S. rallies past France GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Twice, Hope Solo stretched to her left to stop the ball. Twice, she couldn’t quite reach it. Bang! Boom! Two quick shots, and the U.S. women’s soccer team had an early hole at the start of the quest for a third consecutive Olympic gold medal. Fortunately for the Americans, they have firepower like no other squad in the world, enough to overcome such a deficit and take control, beating France 4-2 Wednesday as they opened their London Games far from London. Weren’t aware that the Olympics were already under

way? There’s nothing like a come-from-behind win to make people notice. “There’s a lot of other sports going on,” deadpanned midfielder Megan Rapinoe. “So we have to catch the attention early.” They did so not only by falling behind, but by finding four dynamic ways to score goals.

Browns rookies lead as camp opens

Cincinnati Reds’ Homer Bailey winds up to pitch to the Houston Astros in the second inning Wednesday in Houston.

Brandon Weeden handed the ball off to Trent Richardson, officially signaling the start of training camp and what the Browns hope is a new era of football. Weeden, a highly touted quarterback selected No. 22 out of Oklahoma State and Richardson, a running back chosen No. 3 overall from Alabama, are being counted on to make an immediate impact in Cleveland. Or else. See Page 11.

Stubbs strikes

Dragons Lair MIDLAND, Mich, — Jesse Bosnik and Jesus Arredondo each had RBI singles in the bottom of the eighth inning as Great Lakes snapped a 7-7 tie and held on for a 9-7 victory over Dayton Wednesday. Dayton used the longball to build a 7-4 lead in the middle of the sixth, with Kyle Waldrop, Nick O’Shea and Sean Buckley all going deep. But the Loons tied the game with three in their half of the sixth and took the lead for good in the eighth.



More 9th-inning heroics as Reds sweep Astros HOUSTON (AP) — Drew Stubbs delivered another huge hit in the ninth inning, launching a two-out, two-run double that rallied the Cincinnati Reds past Houston 5-3 Wednesday night for

their season-high eighth straight win. Stubbs came through with the Reds trailing 3-2. A night earlier, he hit a two-run homer in the ninth that wiped out the Astros’

one-run lead. Both of Stubbs’ hits came against former teammate Francisco Cordero (3-7). The NL Central leaders sent Houston to its ninth loss in a row, tying a season worst.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Max Scherzer allowed two runs over seven innings to win his fourth straight decision and the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians for only the second time in eight games this season with a 5-3 victory Wednesday night. Quintin Berry had three hits and drove in two runs to help Scherzer (10-5) win for the first time in four career starts at Progressive Field. Scherzer, whose only mistake came on Casey Kotchman’s tworun homer in the third, held the Indians to three hits, struck out eight and walked four. Jose Valverde gave up Travis Hafner’s one-out homer in the ninth before recording his 19th save in 23 chances. The Tigers, who have won 14 of 17, remained tied for first in the AL Central with Chicago, while the third-place Indians fell four games out. Derek Lowe (8-9) allowed five runs in six innings, but wasn’t helped by shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera’s throwing errors on back-to-back plays that allowed two runs to score in the second. Lowe, the Indians’ best pitcher the first two months of the season, is 2-8 with a 7.59 ERA in his last 12 starts. The 39-year-old right-hander was 6-1 with a 2.05 ERA in his first eight outings but has been rocked since, allowing 89 hits and 54 earned runs in 64 innings. Miguel Cabrera’s RBI single in the first gave Detroit the early

Players still Lions despite penalties By The Associated Press The Penn State football players looked on stoically as two of their teammates announced to the world: “We’re going to see this thing through.” There were no smiles or slaps on the back among the more than 30 Nittany Lions who huddled outside the school’s football facility Wednesday morning. After the statement was read, they turned around and walked

back into the building. “We want to let the nation know that we’re proud of who we are,” senior fullback Michael Zordich said, flanked by his fellow players. “We’re the true Penn Staters, and we’re going to stick together through this. We’re going to see this thing through, and we’re going to do everything we can for the university. We know it’s not going to be easy, but we know what we’re made of.” NCAA sanctions will keep the

Nittany Lions out of a bowl game for the rest of these players’ careers, and college sports’ governing body is allowing any of them to transfer to another school and get on the field right away. But on Wednesday, at least 13 players listed as firststringers on the preseason depth chart affirmed their commitment to staying in Happy Valley, including senior quarterback Matt McGloin. Neither Zordich nor senior

linebacker Michael Mauti both sons of former Penn State players mentioned former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky by name during the impromptu news conference, where they didn’t take any questions after reading a statement. “We take this as an opportunity to create our own legacy,” Mauti said. “This program was not built by one man and it’s

Broncos hope to help in healing ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos reported to camp Wednesday hoping to lift the spirits of a community in mourning over the movie theater massacre in neighboring Aurora. Several players visited hospitalized survivors and medical personnel in the days after a gunman in full body armor opened fire during the midnight premiere of the new Batman movie, leaving 12 dead and 58 injured. Coach John Fox said the Broncos will do what they can to provide a measure of comfort to a heavy-hearted community, a role he’s famil-

iar with from his time with the New York Giants during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. “Well, we’re going to do our absolute best and we understand the responsibility that comes with being in the Broncos organization,” Fox said. “This region, city, state has great passion for the team, there’s no doubt. I think our players will feel that responsibility and it’s something that we’ll talk about most definitely later today in our team meeting. “I was in New York when 9-11 occurred and a lot of the victims really looked to us and (now, others) will look to

us here in Denver, for some uplifting times.” Peyton Quarterback Manning called eight of the wounded Sunday and Monday while a dozen of his teammates, decked out in their orange jerseys, visited hospitalized patients and those who were treating them. Some of those same players had gathered a few weeks ago to honor the firefighters who were battling Colorado’s deadly wildfires that destroyed hundreds of homes. “Well, for some negative things that do happen to occur, our guys do a whole

lot of good and that was part of that, whether it was the fires or this recent tragedy,” Fox said. “I’m very proud of them. They were out there, they want to give back and they want to somehow lift the spirits.” Among the players making visits to hospitals in recent days was Pro Bowl pass rusher Elvis Dumervil, who was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following a traffic dispute in Miami AP PHOTO where a witness said he flashed a gun in his waist- Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning waves band during a confrontation as he reports to training camp Wednesday at the team’s headquarters in Englewood, Colo. with a female driver.

Panthers’ Kalil predicts Super Bowl win in ad CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Ryan Kalil believes the Carolina Panthers will win the Super Bowl this season and he put his money where his mouth is to prove it. The Panthers threetime Pro Bowl center took out a full page advertisement in the Charlotte Observer on Wednesday boldly declaring fans will be rewarded for their unwavering support with a “one hundred-percent, sterling silver victory the Lombardi Trophy. And it reads: Carolina Panthers, Super Bowl XLVII champions.” That’s a bold prediction, particularly for a team coming off a 6-10 season that hasn’t won a playoff game since 2005. But Kalil believes in his teammates. In the 178-word letter to fans Kalil said something special is happening in Carolina. “There is a sense of urgency, a winning attitude that I haven’t seen before,” Kalil wrote. “Fans will see it in the way that we play.” Kalil received support for his decision to go public with his prediction from his teammates, as well as coach Ron Rivera. “If we don’t have 53 guys with the same attitude walking in that

building then we have to find 53 guys that do,” Rivera said. “What he did is he put how he feels out there. And I think that’s great.” Rivera didn’t try to downplay Kalil’s comments at all. “I’m right behind him and I feel the same way,” said Rivera, now in his second season with the Panthers. “In fact, I’m stepping out in front and saying the same thing. This is a group of men that if they understand and work hard and put it on themselves, who knows, the sky can be the limit.” Panthers linebacker Jon Beason said when he saw ad he snapped a picture on his phone and immediately put it out on Twitter. “I loved what he did,” Beason said. Beason said the key this year will be to make big strides on defense, a unit that finished 27th in the league last season. “Watching what took place last year, especially on the offensive side of the ball, I think we’re really close,” Beason said. “Defense we have to get guys healthy and I think we have more maturity out there this year, which will help us. I don’t think we can do worse than last year on defense.”

Indians ■ CONTINUED FROM A10 lead. Singles by Austin Jackson and Berry put runners on first and third before Cabrera lined a single to right-center. Jackson scored and Berry took third, but Cabrera was thrown out trying for second to end the rally. Lowe continued to struggle in the second when he was hurt by Cabrera’s shoddy defense. Alex Avila doubled with one out and Omar Infante sent a routine grounder to short for what should have been the second out, but Cabrera’s throw to first pulled Kotchman off the

bag with Avila taking third. Cabrera then made a backhand stop of Jackson’s ground ball, but his one-hop throw skipped past second baseman Jason Kipnis and rolled into right field. Avila scored and the runners moved to second and third. Berry’s single made it 3-0. Kotchman’s two-run homer the Indians’ first hit closed the gap to 3-2. After Shin-Soo Choo doubled with one out, Kipnis drew a two-out walk, but the inning ended when Michael Brantley flied out to deep right.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden throws during a practice at the team’s rookie camp May 13 in Berea.

Young guns Browns’ rookies lead way as camp opens BEREA (AP) — Brandon Weeden handed the ball off to Trent Richardson, officially signaling the start of training camp and what the Browns hope is a new era of football. Weeden, a highly touted quarterback selected No. 22 out of Oklahoma State and Richardson, a running back chosen No. 3 overall from Alabama, are being counted on to make an immediate impact in Cleveland. Or else. Pat Shurmur didn’t instantly name Weeden the starter Wednesday on the first day of his second camp as coach. But the 28-yearold rookie with the golden arm was first in line for reps, followed by incumbent starter Colt McCoy, 10-year veteran Seneca Wallace and second-year reserve Thaddeus Lewis. “I think it makes sense to name the starter well before the season,” Shurmur said. “That’s probably what will happen. When it comes to naming a quarterback, sooner is better.” And for a team eager to improve upon a 4-12 finish Cleveland’s fourth straight season of five or fewer wins getting better can’t come soon enough. Weeden, for one, can’t wait. One day after signing

a four-year, $8.1 million contract, he said he was never in danger of being a holdout. He threw tight spirals with pinpoint accuracy and plenty of zip. “I wanted to be here, wanted to compete,” said Weeden, who said he feels much more comfortable than he did at rookie camp and Organized Team Activities in May. “From Day 1, my head was spinning so fast I couldn’t see straight,” he said. “The last OTA, I felt in complete control. I think I’m anxious, excited. There’s no reason to be worried about anything.” Only rookies, quarterbacks and selected veterans participated. The full squad reports Friday for similar drills and the first hard-hitting practice will be Saturday. Weeden, a former pitcher in the New York Yankees’ farm system, was among the first players on the field. He and McCoy went out together and threw the ball to one another in warmups. “I’m looking forward to competing with all these guys to be the guy,” Weeden said. “But we’re all cordial in everything that we do.” A third big offseason addition drew attention, too. After watching other high-profile rookies, all ears

were on what wide receiver Josh Gordon had to say. Gordon came to Cleveland as a secondround pick in this month’s supplemental draft following a checkered collegiate career. The talented, yet troubled 21-year-old was dismissed at Baylor after his sophomore season for testing positive for marijuana. He transferred to Utah and didn’t play in any games last fall. “I want to get past that,” said Gordon, who vowed that he is a different person. “I have a new foundation, a new start. Just the opportunity to be out here keeps me on the right path. For them to do what they have for me, I want to reciprocate and do things for this team.” Gordon looked good catching throws from each of the four passers. Occasionally, he was pulled aside after a play by one of the coaches. Gordon said he welcomed the personalized instruction. Richardson, two days after getting a four-year deal worth $20.5 million, spoke about what getting that much money meant to him. “It is a blessing, a living dream and just surreal,” Richardson said. “Once you get money. it is like, ‘OK, what do I do with it?’”

COLUMBUS (AP) — The old minor league ballpark near downtown Columbus is getting new life as an auto-research center and racetrack. Franklin County officials approved the sale of Cooper Stadium to developers Tuesday for $3.4 million, culminating a yearslong quest to find a new use for the shuttered facility. The 80-year-old ballpark has hosted three minor league teams but has been mostly idle since the Columbus Clippers, the AAA affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, left for their new digs at Huntington Park downtown in 2009. Plans for the 47-acre site include a racetrack, amphitheater and an automotive-research center where new technologies will be developed and tested. Also proposed is conference space with a hotel and restaurants. The complex is being developed by King Holding Corp., a division of Arshot Investment Corp. Demolition and redevelopment is set to begin early next year, with the Sports Pavilion and Automotive Research Complex expected to open in 2014. Developers say it could bring up to 300 new jobs, from entry-level to high-paying research positions. A deal to sell the stadium was written in 2008 but was delayed to allow more time to develop plans for the site and address quality-oflife concerns from nearby residents and business owners. This year, the Columbus City Council approved a 10year, 75 percent tax-abatement plan for the site. The ballpark has had four names over the years and has been home to three minor league teams: the Columbus Red Birds, the Columbus Jets and, from 1977 to 2009, the Clippers. County Commissioner John O’Grady said the new development will return the site to a regional tourism draw.

Mark Adams said last month. “It makes sense to give fans the best experience we can and these will be the first truly ‘social’ Games. “I’m sure that through Facebook and all of our other social media channels we will manage to bring a new dimension to the Games for a new audience.” • Greece Expels Athlete Over Racist Tweets ATHENS, Greece — Triple jumper Voula Papachristou was expelled from Greece’s Olympic team Wednesday for her comments on Twitter mocking African immigrants and expressing support for a far-right party. The Hellenic Olympic Committee said Wednesday that Papachristou had been excluded from the team “for statements contrary to the values and ideas of the

Olympic movement.” “It’s the same as violating fair play,” Isidoros Kouvelos, the head of Greece’s Olympic mission, told the country’s Skai TV channel. “We are not here just to get medals, but to promote the Olympic ideals, to show our character.” He added that the Hellenic Olympic Committee did not contact Papachristou either before or after issuing the statement excluding her from the games. Papachristou is in Athens and had been set to travel to London shortly before the track events start. After the comments and the ensuing uproar, the Hellenic Olympic Committee banned all Greek athletes from using social media to express any personal opinions not related to the Olympics.

9 suspended ahead of Games

■ CONTINUED FROM A10 nice run from Tobin Heath. “I think there was a lot of nerves and stuff going on in those first minutes,” defender Rachel Buehler said. “And we got ‘em out. It probably went as bad as it could — and then we were able to turn it around.” Soccer always starts early at the Olympics in order to have time to play a full tournament of games. In this case, the Americans were on the field two days before the opening ceremony and 400-plus miles from the British capital. And they knew that an early stumble wouldn’t be the end of the world. The U.S. gave up two goals in the first four minutes to open the last Olympics in China, losing to 2-0 to Norway. The Americans rebounded to win their final five matches and take the gold. “After 2-0, I thought about China,” coach Pia Sundhage said. “We’ve been there before and we came back. If you look at the whole tournament in China, we won the gold medal. Now this team is better than 2008. We came back in the game.” While the Americans are favored to take the title again — and even though the U.S. is now 130-1 all-time against France — it was hardly a surprise to see the French make it a game. The teams were tied late in the second half in last year’s World Cup semifinals before the Americans finished off a 3-1 win, and France entered these Olympics on a 17-game winning streak. Still, the Americans allowed more goals in the first handful of minutes Wednesday than they had allowed in any game since the World Cup final loss to Japan. Gaetane Thiney (12th minute) and MarieLaure Delie (14th) found holes in a supposedly impenetrable defense — a potential cause for U.S. concern as the grueling tournament progresses.

IAAF dishes out harsh penalties for doping


United States’ Megan Rapinoe (right) leaps onto teammate Alex Morgan in celebration after Morgan scored a goal during the women’s group G soccer match between the United States and France at the London 2012 Summer Olympics Wednesday at Hampden Park Stadium in Glasgow, Scotland. “It’s not the game we wanted to play,” defender and captain Christie Rampone said. “But we’ve got a lot of games ahead of us to try and get our rhythm back.” Another concern for the Americans: Midfielder Shannon Boxx left in the first half with a hamstring injury and is day-to-day. “Magic things could happen after a good sleep,” Sundhage said. “So we’ll just wait and see.” Regardless, other teams in the tournament will surely take notice at how

the Americans roared back against the French. Wambach in the 19th. Morgan in the 32nd. Lloyd in the 56th. Morgan again in the 66th. Wambach now has 139 international goals in her pursuit of Mia Hamm’s record of 158, and 23-year-old “Baby Horse” Morgan — the secondyoungest player on the team — has a remarkable 19 this year alone. “We didn’t stress out,” Wambach said. “We just needed that one goal to give us that momentum, and that’s what happened.

… I think they might be kicking themselves because they had a really good opportunity to keep the United States at bay. Going up two goals against us is quite a feat, in my opinion, and I think the fact we kind of grinded it out, came back and had four unanswered goals, I think that’s demoralizing for any opponent, truthfully.” The United States plays Colombia in its second group game on Saturday. France will face North Korea.

That’s why support will be needed from fans and alumni more than ever, the players said. “We’re going to do everything in our power to get this place back on track,” Zordich said. “I’m personally calling out every member of Nittany Nation all the students, faculty, fans and family members, alumni, everything that there is. Please, please come support us through this, because we need you just as much as you need us. And together we’re going to get through this thing to the end.” Mauti is expected to be a

leader on the defensive side, while McGloin won the starting quarterback job during spring practice. On Twitter, McGloin called the NCAA penalties “extremely harsh.” “I am a Nittany Lion and will remain one,” he tweeted. “I believe in the core values I have learned in this program. It is not Nittany Lion Football. It is Nittany Lion family.” But some players will weigh whether to transfer, with other schools wooing them. The biggest name is running back Silas Redd, who rushed for 1,241 yards as a sophomore last season.

Redd has yet to reveal his plans. Illinois spokesman Kent Brown confirmed that a group of assistant coaches traveled to State College on Wednesday to talk to some Nittany Lions players. Brown said Illini athletic director Mike Thomas informed Penn State of the trip and that it came after Nittany Lions players contacted the Illini. Cornerback Stephon Morris, who attended Wednesday’s news conference, tweeted: “We have chosen to stay at PSU & other opposing coaches are outside our apartment. Was

MONACO (AP) — Nine track athletes were suspended ahead of the London Olympics for doping, including three who were caught in retests of samples from last year’s world championships, the IAAF said Wednesday. The governing body said six were caught in biological passport tests, which measure changes in an athlete’s blood profile. The others were sanctioned after retroactive testing of blood and urine samples from the worlds in Daegu, South Korea. Eight of the athletes received two-year suspensions, while one was handed a four-year ban. The IAAF said the athletes eight women and one man were involved in “sophisticated doping,” including one case of human growth hormone and two of synthetic testosterone. Among those suspended was Ukraine’s Nataliya Tobias, who won a bronze medal in the 1,500 meters at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. She tested positive for testosterone in further analysis of urine samples from Daegu, where she finished ninth in the 1,500. Another Ukrainian athlete, 400-meter runner Antonina Yefremova, also was later caught for using testosterone in Daegu. She was eliminated in the semifinals. The IAAF said the two Ukrainians were caught after suspicious blood samples taken at the worlds led to further checks on the urine samples they provided at their team training camp in Korea. The IAAF said Bulgarian sprinter Inna Eftimova, who was eliminated in the 100-meter heats in Daegu, tested

positive for synthetic growth hormone. “This is the second finding of growth hormone in athletics and one of only a very few to date in sport as a whole,” the IAAF said. Eftimova, Tobias and Yefremova all received two-year bans after admitting to doping and waiving their right to having their backup “B” sample tested. In the six biological passport cases, the highest-profile athlete is Moroccan marathon runner Abderrahim Goumri, who has been a runnerup at the Chicago, London and New York marathons and won the Seoul International Marathon in 2011. Goumri was banned for four years by the Moroccan Athletic Federation until March 2016, but the IAAF said the penalty is “not final under IAAF rules” and can still be appealed by the athlete. The five other athletes are Greek steeplechaser Irini Kokkinariou, Turkish distance runner Meryem Erdogan and Russian long-distance runners Svetlana Klyuka, Nailiya Yulamanova and Yevgenina Zinurova. All six athletes had been flagged as suspicious and regularly targeted by the IAAF since 2009. The Ethiopian-born Erdogan and the three Russians admitted doping and received two-year bans, the IAAF said. Kokkinariou was suspended for two years by the Greek Athletics Federation. The IAAF has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport seeking a four-year ban on the grounds of aggravating circumstances.

■ College Football

Penn State ■ CONTINUED FROM A10 sure as hell not going to get torn down by one man. This program was built on every alumni, every single player that came before us, built on their backs.” The Nittany Lions can’t play in a bowl game until the 2016 season after an unprecedented child sex abuse scandal that shattered the program’s image as a place where “success with honor” was the rule. The scholarship reductions they’ll receive could make it difficult for new coach Bill O’Brien to field a competitive squad during the next few seasons.

that the intentions of the NCAA.” He added the hashtags “LeaveUsAlone” and “WeAre.” • 4-year Ban Was On The Table A spokesman for Penn State president Rodney Erickson says the university faced a potential fouryear ban on playing football before the NCAA issued its punishment for how the school handled the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal. Erickson spokesman David La Torre disclosed the possibility of a fouryear ban Wednesday, after Erickson met behind closed

doors with the trustees to discuss the sanctions the NCAA imposed earlier in the week. College sports’ governing body on Monday handed down a $60 million fine, imposed a four-year bowl game ban, reduced football scholarships and negated 111 wins under former coach Joe Paterno. NCAA president Mark Emmert said this week that if a total football ban had been imposed, other penalties would have accompanied it. The potential four-year ban was first reported by ESPN.

Games Central London takes stage for 2012 Summer Olympics athletes to watch, there are many more notable Americans to keep an eye Excitement around the on at the Aquatics Cenworld has reached a fever tre. Ryan pitch as the London 2012 Lochte is a Olympic Games will offi- threecially open with a grand time ceremony on July 27 from London’s Olympic Stadium. The Games of the 30th Olympiad will run from Friday, July 27, to Sunday, Aug. 12, and NBC will carry every event live online or tapedelayed in prime time. That’s great news for audiences in the U.S., who will now be able to follow their country’s successes with unprecedented exposure. Past Olympic coverage has focused on highlighting top events to air in evening timeslots, and while NBC will continue that tradition, it will also offer abundant coverage via online streaming video. Fans will be given ample opportunity to follow what promises to be one of the best American contingents to compete at a Summer Games. Team U.S.A. has won the medal count in every Summer Olympics gold medalist and could since 1992 and this year be Phelps’ top competitor you can expect that in the pool. With Lochte streak to continue. and Phelps leading the After collecting eight way, it could be a battle gold medals in eight for bronze for the rest of events at the 2008 Beithe field. jing Games, Michael Other notable AmeriPhelps will again be hit- can athletes expected to ting the pool to represent make some noise are the Stars and Stripes.

Bolt’s flair top of the list of American


and enthusiasm endeared him to fans around the world and many expect him to continue where he left off in Beijing. For Great Britain, there will be a considerable amount of pressure to please the home crowds. In Beijing, the U.K. tallied 19 gold medals and 47 in total, enough for fourth place in both categories. It’s safe to say that the host nation expects to improve on those numbers and will strive to finish in the top three, most likely behind Team U.S.A. and China. The face of the games for the host nation will be composed of a number of British athletes who will be gunning for hometown glory. Scottish track cyclist Chris Hoy will be a Briton to watch during the Games. The man they call “The Real McHoy” took home three gold medals from Beijing — the first Briton to accomplish the feat in a century — and is poised to hit the podium again in London. English swimmer Rebecca Adlington was a double gold medalist in 2008 and is a rising star back home in England. Her 800-metre swim in Beijing broke the event’s longest-standing record, one that had been in the books for 19 years. Adlington has recently developed a friendly rivalry with Italy’s Federica Pellegrini, who is a dominant force in these events, so you can expect some heated showdowns between these two powerhouses. Team U.S.A.’s domination on the basketball court will likely continue as Kobe Bryant and LeBron James will lead one of the best American squads into an Olympics

since the original Dream Team in 1992. As good as they’ll be, the U.S. will face stiff competition from Spain, Argentina and Italy. Meanwhile, the women’s team, led by Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi, will be looking to record its fifth consecutive Olympic gold medal. Another team sport that garners plenty of attention is soccer. The American women — the No. 1-ranked team in the world — will be playing

for a third time — Athens and Paris are the only other cities to host twice. London first hosted in 1908, just 12 years after the first modern Olympics. It hosted again in 1948, as London repre

Meanwhile, the men will be looking to regain some international respect after being eliminated in the first round at Beijing. It’s been a long road for London 2012 organizers since being selected Olympic host in July 2005. These Games mark the first time that a city will stage the Olympics

sented the Olympics’ restoration after a 12year hiatus due to World War II. Now the city is tasked with following the grandiose Beijing Games, which operated on a gargantuan budget. London’s advantage is in its blend
