OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) — A gunman opened fire Sunday and killed six people at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee before he was killed in an exchange of gunfire with one of the first officers to respond to the chaotic scene, authorities said. The shootings happened before 10:30 a.m., when witnesses said several dozen people were gathering at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin for a service. Hours of uncertainty followed as police in tactical gear and carrying assault rifles surrounded the temple with armored vehicles and ambulances. A crowd gathered outside as officers descended on the temple and some

Some said they had heard there were multiple shooters, others spoke of women and children held hostage. The first official word from police was that they didn’t know how many victims or suspects were involved. But a short time later, after an extensive search of the temple, authorities said they did

said, “It was like the heart just sat down. This shouldn’t happen anywhere.” Oak Creek Police John Edwards said officers called to the scene were tending a victim when the suspect ambushed one officer and shot him multiple times. The suspect then shot at another officer, who fired back and killed him. Earlier, police had said the officer who was shot killed the suspected shooter. Tactical units went through the building and found four people dead inside the temple and two outside, in addition to the shooter. Two others were wounded along with the police officer, Edwards said. All three were being treated at an area trauma center. Greenfield Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt, who was helping in the investigation, said the

Mangat didn’t know how serious Kaleka’s injuries were. “This is nerve-racking. No one really knows what’s going on. Nothing like this has ever happened before,” Mangat said. Later, when he learned of the deaths, he • See SHOOTING on Page 2

For the first year, Best of Show winners in the Art Hall’s baked goods competition will be auctioned off to the public. Best of show winners — including cakes, cupcakes, cookies and brownies, quick and yeast breads, candies and pies — will be available for purchase through an auction at 6 p.m. Aug. 10 at the Art Hall. Items will consist of entries from both youth and adults, according to Miami County Agricultural Society Administrative Assistant Jill Wright. Wright, of Fletcher, said the event will be located in a green and white tent outside the Art Hall. She said the idea came from visiting other fairs. “We like to attend others fairs and monitor what they do and bring ideas back,” said Wright, the mother of Kyle and Lauren, a first-year fair participant. Wright said fair organizers recognized that other fair programs offer monetary incentives and wanted to help promote the Art Hall with the same. She said they posted a sign during the time Art Hall entries were being accepted, and believes people are excited about the prospect of being included in the auction. “Some families will be

police officer had surgery and is expected to survive. Wentlandt did not identify the suspect or say what might have motivated the shootings. Family members identified some victims. Sukhwindar Nagr, of Racine, said he called his brother-in-law’s phone and a priest at the temple answered and told him that his brother-in-law had been shot, along with three priests. The priest also said women and children were hiding in temple closets, Nagr said. Devendar Nagra, 48, of Mount Pleasant, said his sister was in the temple preparing a meal when the shooting started. He said he spoke with her and she escaped injury by hiding in the kitchen, but a priest told him that his brother-in-law, the temple’s caretaker, had been shot in the leg. Nagra’s spoke to his sis-

ter as she was evacuated from the temple to a nearby bowling alley. LeRon Bridges, 16, of Oak Creek, works at the bowling alley and said he was in a supply closet when he heard four gunshots. He looked outside, saw police coming and went to get his boss. “There were more and more police showing up,” he said. “They all pulled out their assault rifles and ran toward the building.” Bridges said police brought people evacuated from the temple to the bowling alley in two armored trucks. At one point, about 50 to 60 people were at the bowling alley, including police officers questioning those from the temple and paramedics treating their wounds, he said. “They were just hysterical,” Bridges said. “There were kids. One big load came out of the truck.” Sikhism is a monotheistic faith founded more than

500 years ago in South Asia. It has roughly 27 million followers worldwide. Observant Sikhs do not cut their hair; male followers often cover their heads with turbans which are considered sacred and refrain from shaving their beards. There are roughly 500,000 Sikhs in the U.S., according to estimates. The majority worldwide live in India. The Sikh Temple of Wisconsin started in 1997 with about 25 families who gathered in community halls in Milwaukee. Construction on the current temple in Oak Creek began in 2006, according to the temple’s website. Sikh rights groups have reported a rise in bias attacks since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The Washington-based Sikh Coalition has reported more than 700 incidents in the U.S. since 9/11, which advocates blame on anti-Islamic sentiment.

base. We logged somewhere around 219,000 miles on the dangerous roads of Iraq.” The 18-month stint, however, had its fair share of sobering moments — none more so than on their first mission out. During the trip, Jordan’s unit had two killed in action and four wounded in action. “The first mission out, we got blown up,” said Jordan, recalling the incident, which happened directly in front of him. “We lost gun truck one. That was the first incident. It happened in September of 2007. “I was young and naive at the time. The first three months over there were all cool. But that incident kind of straightened me out a little bit. When your over in another country, you’ve really got to get your head in the game. You kind of forget about home a little bit.” Jordan is now a ser-

geant at age 24. While deployment day quickly approaches Jordan, Tyler is at Ft. Bliss getting his first taste of military life. The younger Tebbe is training in the field of system maintenance. As a member of A-1-34 3rd Plt., he will serve as a stryker in his first trip overseas. “I don’t feel too bad,” Tyler said. “The closer you get, the more nervous and anxious you get. I’m going into a completely new environment. It’s really the first time going out of country for me.” “I talk to him a lot and tell him a lot of the fun stories,” Jordan said. “Military life is really an awesome place for a young, single man. It’s a really fun place. It’s kind of like being a member of a football team, you know? Except you’re playing the most competitive sport in the world — war.” The family shares a

common respect for what the military has done and sacrificed for the country in the present and the past — which is perhaps the reason why the brothers decided to join in the first place. But through it all, their mom has gained an even deeper appreciation into what the military men of our country do. “We’re very proud,” Joyce said. “It’s a sacrifice. They have given up a lot. It’s made me realize how much I take advantage of the United States and our freedom. Now, I feel like I need to do more — like all Americans, who don’t realize how much these boys do for our freedom. “There’s so much controversy out there in the world about the Army doing this, the military doing that, they should or they shouldn’t. Nonetheless, there are a lot of people out there doing things — and we need to respect them.”

Deploy • CONTINUED FROM A1 rivalry with my brother.” In a family that has a long history of military involvement — spanning from their dad Larry’s side through their mother Joyce (Goubeaux’s) side — Jordan and Tyler stand alone as the only members to join the Army. The brothers both are deploying in the coming months. Jordan is heading to Africa for his second tour overseas in the middle of August, while Tyler is in Texas at Ft. Bliss, preparing for his first deployment to Afghanistan in December. Meanwhile, on the home front, their parents and sister Chelsea will remain tough through the process, already having been through Jordan’s first deployment overseas in 2007. “We coped through faith (during Jordan’s first deployment),” Joyce

explained. “Not only are my boys doing it, but a lot of other boys out there fighting for our freedom. I think that’s something we have to do as Americans. “If something happens to them, though, I’ll probably be a mom going mad.” Jordan now is a seasoned veteran in the military — and he has the accolades to prove it, including two Army Combination medals, two Army Achievement medals, a Red Artillery Cord and a Combat Action Badge. At the age of 19, he volunteered for deployment to Baghdad as part of the National Guard unit B. Btry 2nd/ 138 F.A. Working in the field artillery department as a truck gunner on convoy missions, Jordan’s unit logged more than 200,000 miles. “Basically we just did missions,” he explained. “We hauled supplies and everything from base to

Alpacas are, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful animals that roam our planet earth. Just the fact that alpacas come in 22 different colors makes them unique, but add to that their gentle nature, tranquil temperament, luxurious fiber, and gentle, calming humming sounds and you have an animal that no human can resist hugging. The natural habitat of the alpaca is the high Andes of South America, but since 1984 they have also flourished on farms throughout the United States because they are so adaptable. There are two different kinds of alpacas in the United States – the suri alpaca which has fiber that appears to be in the form of dreadlocks and is very silky, and the huacaya (pronounced waki-a) alpaca which has very colorful fiber that is extremely fine and gives the alpaca a woolly and round appearance. Alpacas prefer outdoors to being cooped up in a barn so a three-sided shed is perfect and an enclosed barn for birthing. They eat very little food each day, usually as much as a large dog.

They eat grass, good quality grass hays, and a special alpaca crumble. They need hay and/or grass for the fiber it contains, and an abundant supply of fresh, clean water. Alpacas should have annual inoculations and de-worm medication just as a dog or cat would.

Fleece The hair of the alpaca is called 'fleece' or 'fiber' rather than 'fur' or 'wool.' Alpaca fleece has 22 natural shades ranging from black to silver and rose gray and white, from mahogany brown to light fawn and champagne. Alpacas can be bred for specific color. There are two types of alpacas, classified according to their fiber type: * Huacaya ('wah-KI-yah') — dense, crimped, wooly, waterresistant fleece. About 90% of all alpacas in the North America are "teddy-bear" huacayas. * Suri ('SUR-ree') — very fine and lustrous fiber which grows parallel to the body in long, separate locks. Only 10% of the alpaca population in the US are suris. Unlike the llama, the fiber of the alpaca can be used for clothing. Alpaca fiber is softer than cashmere or angora, and warmer and lighter weight than wool, without the prickle-factor that some wool has. Since alpaca fleece has no lanolin, it is easier to process and is hypoallergenic. Alpacas are sheared annually, usually in the spring. The fiber may be sold and processed into rovings, spun into yarn, knitted or woven into fine fabrics. Each step adds more value to the product.

and that lies along the ocean is called a beach. Many beaches are made of sand, much like the sand in a sandbox. Others are made of pebbles or rocks. People all over the world visit the beach to play in the sand and swim in the ocean.

When you walk along the beach, you can’t help but notice the seashells that have washed up on the sand. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. • Plan a Show and Shell day for your class. Take turns showing off your shell collections. Have someone bring a conch (pronounced konk) shell and listen to the ocean inside.

The beaches along the United States are popular vacation spots. People travel from all over the world to visit beaches in Florida, California, Hawaii, and other coastal states. • Pretend you are going on a trip to the beach. First, pick a character from your newspaper’s comic strips to go with you. Then look through your newspaper’s advertisements and make a list of things you and your friend would take along. Don’t forget the sunscreen!

The seashells you see on the beach were once the homes of living animals. As these animals grow, they leave their shells behind and make new ones.

• Now, cut out your newspaper’s weather map and paste it in the space below. Draw a line from the state in which you live to the nearest ocean state. How many states would you have to travel through to get to the beach?

• Unscramble the words below to learn the names of animals that live in shells.

_________ brac _________ laisn _________ yersto _________ loplsac

(Answers: crab, snail, oyster, scallop)

• Now, make your own word scramble. Cut out letters in the newspaper that spell five ocean words found on this page. Paste the letters onto construction paper and cut them out. Mix up the letters in each word and ask a friend to try to unscramble them.

The rare and exotic alpaca is a creature of antiquity that is rapidly gaining popularity around the world. Highly prized for their luxurious coats, the alpaca has been considered a treasure of the Andes Mountains for

more than 6,000 years. Alpacas are New World camelids and look like small llamas or longnecked camels with no humps, especially when recently sheared. They have shaggy necks and camel-like faces with thick lips, pronounced noses, and long ears. Their large, expressive eyes seem to exhibit both

wisdom and childlike curiousity. Easily domesticated, alpacas are friendly, gentle and curious. Alpacas were exported from Peru in the mid-1980s and have become a premier livestock in North America and abroad. In the United States, the national Alpaca Registry (ARI) was formed to ensure breed purity and

high standards. Importation from South America is now closed. Each alpaca born in the US is blood-typed before registering. This practice helps keep our North American standards high, our animals healthy, and our breeding practices more focused on growing the best alpaca fiber in the world.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP London Evening Standard on Germany’s credit-worthiness: It would once have seemed impossible that the credit-worthiness of Germany would be questioned by the credit ratings agencies, but the febrile state of the eurozone is such that this is what Moody’s has done. It has not downgraded the country but says the outlook is negative. France lost its AAA status earlier. The standing of the agencies themselves has never recovered from their calamitous misjudgments prior to the credit crunch, but Moody’s has a point. Germany is not being judged on its own merits — it is still a rock-hard, export-led economy, unlike Britain — but it is being called on to be paymaster for the eurozone, which no economy can sustain for long.

Indeed, some Canadian farms — and related industries, such as potash — are likely to benefit from the U.S. drought, as it creates higher world demand and higher prices. The prices will trickle up through the food chain, so the world prices for meat and dairy will likely rise, too. Nobody likes to pay higher prices at the grocery store, but the scenario would be much worse if there were no trade — if a “hundredmile diet” were enforced on everyone. If consumers in the U.S. had no access to imported food, a drought there would be even more disastrous, and the costs of food there would go even higher — while having no effect on food prices here in Canada, and thus creating no reward for our farmers or incentive for them to grow more food. This is why trade works. It helps consumers in one country access products they otherwise couldn’t access at all, or at least not without paying exorbitant prices. … From a food-security perspective, policies that aim to “protect” local farmers from international competition are a double-edged sword. Isolation makes regions vulnerable to drought, flood and disease. There is no protectionism strong enough to protect against nature. Well-designed risk management programs can and should reduce the damage for farmers, but consumers need some consideration too. The global food system is more resilient when it has more sources of supply, and more avenues of trade.

DOONESBURY

A distinct lack of power to the people Troy Troy When the going gets tough, the tough get out the generator. Like thousands of other people, we lost power when those big storms blew through a few weeks ago. While we were lucky enough not to lose any trees, the electricity did not hold up as well. Our lights gave a feeble flicker and then went kaput. Being eternal optimists, we sat around in the dark for a bit hoping power would be restored shortly. After a few minutes had passed we sat around some more, thinking, “Any time now…” If you recall, the temperatures at the time were hovering around the ninety-nine degree mark and we didn’t want to expend any more personal energy than absolutely necessary. So imagine our gratification when, after about an hour, the lights magically came back on. Then imagine our ungratification when, after about one minute, they went back out. I come from hardy pioneer stock. It’s true my current domicile is in the outskirts of Covington, but remember the long arduous journey there was made from Russia. Well, Russia, Ohio that is. A grand total of eleven miles at the wheel of a Honda

Marla Boone Troy Daily News Columnist Accord. That’s not exactly the same as a Conestoga wagon, but as I recall the FM radio reception was really sketchy that day and the overland trek was made without musical accompaniment. Oh the humanity. The man who promised to love, honor, and keep the coffee percolating is also made of tough stuff. He once went fourteen days without ESPN. There was no lasting trauma from that infamous episode, but he is not a man to take unwarranted chances. Out came the generator. Remember back to December of 1999. The calendar was soon to tick over to the year 2000 and no one was quite sure what the automated world would make of this. It was suggested that computers

would stop computing, that power grids would stop powering, and that life as we knew it would either be interrupted or cease completely. Remember how scores of people ran out and bought generators to fill the gap? Well we weren’t some of those people. Living out on the edge of the Covington wilderness, we had already been subjected to the occasional lapse of electricity. We had had a generator for years and were glad of it. Using the generator was not the problem. Deciding what to use it for was. Like all generators, ours will support only a limited amount of applications. It was time to prioritize what would receive electricity and what would not. You would think this would be a fairly easy call. You would be wrong. Since it was now approximately four hundred degrees in the house, we agreed hooking up a fan was the first order of business. After that, decisions took on the importance of a Supreme Court ruling, with all the attendant acrimony. Seems as though Steve and I have completely different views on what is vital for civilized life. Out here in the boondocks, we have no city water. We have no

water at all unless we can keep the well pump working. A logical person (me) would be in favor of spending some of our precious power to get a drink of water. An illogical person (Steve) would insist Sports Center was on and since we had an extension cord long enough to reach the television it was just common sense to avail ourselves of this basic necessity. He was not going to endure a repeat of the fourteen day ESPN drought. Marriage is all about compromise. I could have water, but would have to put up with someone who was not only very warm, but also in the throes of the dreaded SWS* (*Sports Withdrawal Syndrome). Steve could die of thirst, but he would die knowing if the Cincinnati Reds won. A nobrainer when you look at it like that. The pump had enough residual pressure for us to draw a few gallons of water. The noise of the fan droned over the dulcet tones of Chris Berman and his henchmen. And we had enough power left over to plug the coffee maker in.

In this Aug. 2, 2012 photo, Dr. Robert Wise holds his Eagle Scout medal in the Chicago suburb of Oakbrook Terrace, Ill. Wise, 59, is among several dozen former Eagle Scouts who are relinquishing their medals following the July 17, 2012 announcement that the Boy Scouts of America, after a confidential two-year review, was sticking with the divisive, long-standing policy of excluding openly gay youth and adults as members and leaders.

This 2011 photo provided by Martin Cizmar shows him in Scottsdale, Ariz. Cizmar, 31, arts and culture editor of Willamette Week, an alternative newspaper in Portland, Ore., is one of several dozen former Eagle Scouts who has returned his medal out of dismay over the Boy Scouts' recently reaffirmed policy of excluding gays. In a letter sent to BSA headquarters along with the medal, Cizmar detailed his scouting career with a troop in Tallmadge. Barack Obama has made no public statement thus far about the Scouts’ policy a notable void given that he is a staunch supporter of gay rights and also, like all presidents of the past 100 years, is the Boy Scouts’ honorary president. The American Civil Liberties Union, in its online newsletter, suggested that Obama re-evaluate White House ties to the Boy Scouts. The White House press office declined comment on the matter, and there has been little pressure on Obama from other quarters. “People are reluctant to force him to take sides,” said Richard Socarides, a former Clinton White House adviser on gay rights. “Everybody knows what side he’s on anyway.” Rep. Barney Frank, an openly gay Democrat from Massachusetts, said Obama already had burnished his gay-rights credentials by supporting same-sex marriage and there were “bigger fish to fry” at this juncture. In contrast to Obama, Republican candidate Mitt Romney does have a public position on the Scouts’ policy he politely disagrees with it. Back in 1994, during a political debate in Massachusetts, Romney said this: “I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate in the

Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.” A Romney spokeswoman, Andrea Saul, said in an email that this remains Romney’s position today. Beyond the political arena, the Boy Scouts’ stance was bemoaned in various newspaper editorials, ranging from The New York Times to the Iowa City Press-Citizen to the Salina Journal in Kansas. “The Scouts do matter. They do a lot of good for a lot of families and boys,” said the Journal’s editorial. “But their influence and relevance will wane if they continue to go against a society that’s becoming more inclusive, not exclusive.” Some critics of the ban say it endures because religious organizations sponsor about 70 percent of the Boy Scouts’ units nationwide and these church groups generally support the membership policy. According to the latest BSA figures, the Mormons’ Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints charters more than 37,000 Boy Scout and Cub Scout troops with a youth membership of more than 420,000, the highest figures of any denomination. Roman Catholic parishes charter about 8,500 units with about 283,000 members. The Scouts have about 2.7 million youth members in all. Chip Turner, a Southern Baptist who chairs the Scouts’ religious relation-

ships committee, said the no-gays policy is unlikely to change as long as it has the support of the churches most active in sponsoring Scout units. The Southern Baptist Convention, back in 1992, adopted a resolution saying it stood in solidarity with the Boy Scouts in confronting a “sustained attack because of its refusal to allow homosexuals as Scout leaders.” Eric Hawkins, a spokesman at Mormon headquarters in Utah, said his church and the Scouts share of a goal of seeking to teach young men “essential values of character, faith and service, including those outlined in the Scout Oath and Scout Law.” “We have a nearly 100year relationship with the Boy Scouts of America, and look forward to continuing that relationship far into the future,” he said. Among the mainline Protestant denominations that sponsor large numbers of Scout units the United Methodist Church, the Episcopal Church and others the picture is less clear. Gilbert Hanke, general secretary of the General Commission on United Methodist Men, said the Scouts’ membership policy would be discussed soon by a scouting ministry committee and might be an agenda item at a board meeting this fall. The United Methodists sponsor more than 11,000 Scout units with about 370,000 youth members. The Episcopal Church which ordains openly gay people as priests has no churchwide position on the Scouts’ policy and leaves it to individual congregations to decide if they want to sponsor a Scout unit. More than 1,100 Episcopal churches do so. At St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church in Alexandria, Va., the associate rector, Rev. Elizabeth Rees, said news of the Boy Scouts’ reaffirmation of their policy made her embarrassed by the sign outside her church for the local Scout troop that meets there. “We have a sign on our property that says, ‘We welcome you,’ and we have the sign for the Boy Scouts,” she said. “The signs seem to be theologically opposed.”

Memorial contributions may be made to the church memorial fund.

NEW YORK (AP) For the physician in Illinois, the attorney in Kentucky, the arts editor in Oregon, their Eagle Scout medals were treasured reminders of youthful achievement. Yet each is parting with his medal out of dismay over the Boy Scouts’ recently reaffirmed policy of excluding gays. “I can no longer maintain any connection to an organization which actively promotes such a bigoted and misguided policy,” Dr. Robert Wise of Chicago wrote to Scout headquarters in Texas. “To that end, I am interested in removing all evidence that I was ever a Scout.” Wise, 59, is among several dozen former Eagle Scouts who have taken such steps following the July 17 announcement that the Boy Scouts of America, after a confidential two-year review, were sticking with the divisive, long-standing policy of excluding openly gay youth and adults as members and leaders. Another of the protesters is attorney Jackson Cooper, 32, a former senior patrol leader of Troop 342 in his hometown of Louisville, Ky. In an open letter, he said he was unsure if any of his fellow Scouts were gay. “But I do know that my now deceased mother, a lesbian, would not have been allowed to serve as a den mother if her orientation had been public knowledge,” he wrote. “The thought that I have invested such a large part of my life with an organization that would have turned my own mother away breaks my heart.” Also returning his medal was Martin Cizmar, 31, arts and culture editor of Willamette Week, an alternative newspaper in Portland, Ore. He tweeted the news: “Just mailed my Eagle Scout medal back to the BSA to protest the ban on gay scouts. Kinda sad, but important.” In a letter sent to BSA headquarters along with the medal, Cizmar detailed his scouting career with a troop in Tallmadge, Ohio. “Though I did not know at the time, I was acquainted with a number of gay Scouts and Scouters (adult leaders),” he wrote. “They were all great men, loyal to the Scout Oath and motto and helpful to the movement. There is no fair reason they should not be allowed to participate in scouting.” Deron Smith, the Boy Scouts’ national spokesman, said there was no official count at his office of how many medals had been returned. He also noted that about 50,000 of the medals are awarded each year. “We’re naturally disappointed when someone decides to return a medal because of this single policy,” he said. “We respect their right to express their opinion.” Beyond the Eagle Scout protests, the Boy Scouts’ reaffirmation of the no-gays policy has drawn condemnation from liberal advocacy groups, newspaper editorialists and others. In Washington state, Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna, an Eagle Scout, joined his Democratic opponent, Jay Inslee, in suggesting the policy be changed. But overall there has been little evidence of any new form of outside pressure that might prompt the Scouts to reconsider. The leadership of the Scouts’ most influential religious partners notably the Mormons, Roman Catholics and Southern Baptists appears to support the policy. And even liberal politicians seem reluctant to press the issue amid a tense national election campaign. For example, President

Why is weight loss often temporary? CHINA MILLMAN Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Craig Cox, left, and Caiden Cox, 5, build a sand castle as runners streak past from the West Florida Y' Runners Club's Sunsets at Pier 60 Beach Series 2012 on Clearwater Beach on June 22. The event is a 5K race.

Hit the grains running Beach is a great place to exercise TERRY TOMALIN Tampa Bay Times The next time you head out to the beach to catch some rays, pack some running shoes along with your lounge chair. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be glad you did. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a better workout,â&#x20AC;? said Jeff Bullock, a St. Petersburg, Fla.-based personal trainer who runs in the sugar sand every chance he gets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will make your whole body stronger, not just your legs.â&#x20AC;? The same goes for walking on the beach. While not quite the calorie blaster that running is, walking is a great fitness activity for all ages, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tougher going on the sand, too. Taking your workout to the beach has many advantages over sticking to your inland route. For starters,

thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the scenery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people live here because of the beach,â&#x20AC;? said Skip Rogers, organizer of the popular Sunsets at Pier 60 summer race series on Clearwater Beach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing more fun than running along the waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edge at sunset.â&#x20AC;? Recent studies have established what many of us know instinctively: It feels good to get outdoors and enjoy the beauty of nature. The sights and sounds of the beach are effective particularly stress-busters. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the start of the health benefits. By some estimates, running on the sand will burn up to 50 percent more calories than running on pavement. But before you rush out and start pounding the sand, you will need to know a few things. Hard versus Soft Rogers tries to schedule his races when the tide is low and there is more room to run along the hardpacked, wet sand. The impact on the bones and joints is still significantly

less than asphalt or concrete, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as hard on the muscles as trying to run on soft sand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to start out on the hard stuff,â&#x20AC;? Rogers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a lot more work running in the sugar sand.â&#x20AC;? The best running beaches are wide and flat. Avoid those that have a steep incline that leads to the water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are running along an incline, one leg is going to be doing more work than the other,â&#x20AC;? said Bullock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is a good way to get injured.â&#x20AC;? In general, running in the sand, hard or soft, will take pressure off joints. But it can also stretch your calf muscles and Achilles tendons, leading to soreness and, in some cases, serious injury if you try too much, too soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to start off with a nice, long run along the wet sand,â&#x20AC;? said Bullock, who operates out of his gym, Bull Fitness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I usually finish off with sprints in the soft sand.â&#x20AC;? But high-intensity sprints, on the road or on

the beach, should not be part of a beginnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workout program. Bare versus Shod Many beach runners prefer to go barefoot. Running without shoes will strengthen your feet, ankles and, ultimately, your entire legs. But if you are running to try to shed weight, you may need to stick with shoes, which will lessen the impact on your bones and joints. Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re leaner, ditch the shoes gradually for short runs and see how you feel. Shoes, however, have another advantage. They protect your feet from nails, glass and a hazard found on many beaches: broken seashells. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to tear up your feet,â&#x20AC;? said Brian Harmon, a salesman with Feet First in St. Petersburg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even running on clean, wet sand will leave you with blisters.â&#x20AC;? Harmon recommends that beginning beach runners wear some kind of running shoe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be as heavy as the shoes that you wear on the street,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But you do want some degree of protection.â&#x20AC;?

The United States is well into its fourth decade of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;obesity epidemic,â&#x20AC;? and no matter how loudly we repeat the refrain â&#x20AC;&#x153;eat less and exercise more,â&#x20AC;? the numbers on our collective scale keep creeping upward. Is weight gain caused by individualsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; poor diet and lack of exercise? Or is it an unavoidable effect of an abundant food supply, outof-control marketing and unlucky genetics? And if most of the evidence points to the latter, why do government agencies continue to use tax dollars to promote solutions that have no hope of working? In May, HBO aired â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weight of the Nation,â&#x20AC;? a miniseries produced with the Institute of Medicine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Institutes of Health. The four-part series made an impassioned case for the dangers of overweight and obesity, and the need to act now before it is too late for a generation of Americans. The campaign was intended to start a national discussion about weight and health, but responses have been mixed, as many nutritionists and public health activists have called the miniseries out for its â&#x20AC;&#x153;fatshamingâ&#x20AC;? rhetoric and emphasis on individual responsibility. Currently, two-thirds of Americans 20 and over are overweight â&#x20AC;&#x201D; approximately 150 million people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and a third are obese. The United States weight-loss market was worth more than $60 billion in 2010, showing that Americans have spent a lot of money trying to slim down. Although it seems we know little about how to successfully diet, the medical and scientific community tend to agree on the basics: Take in fewer calories than you expend, and you will lose weight. But what scientists are just beginning to understand is how peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bodies change as they gain or lose weight, altering metabolism and even feelings of hunger, and making the overall

equation much more complicated than 3,500 calories equals one pound of fat. If weight were a purely aesthetic characteristic, there would be no justification for incessant scrutiny, much less government intervention. But higher percentages of body fat are correlated with higher risks of health problems, from Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure to breathing problems and certain cancers. As a result, body mass index charts have become ubiquitous in doctorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offices and on health websites. However, the index does not measure body fat percentage. It simply estimates it. Putting so much emphasis on the risks of being overweight can obscure the fact that thin people are often at risk for these diseases as well. Linda Bacon, nutrition professor in the biology department at City College of San Francisco and an associate nutritionist at the University of California, Davis, points to other factors that have a strong correlation with health: relative wealth, social connectedness and activity level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weight,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play as large a role (in health) as we thought, nor is it controllable as we thought. Good health is much more achievable and sustainable through improved health habits.â&#x20AC;? Her campaign, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Health at Every Size,â&#x20AC;? emphasizes the idea that there is natural diversity in body shapes and sizes, that food should be a source of pleasure, not anxiety, and that people should focus on improving habits such as eating and exercising for the sake of their health, not body weight. Jennifer K. Nelson, lead dietitian at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, takes a different tack. She regularly evaluates diets for the Mayo website and says a wide variety will work, if strictly followed, because they all restrict calories. The best ones also will emphasize increased activity, but what really matters is whether the diet is sustainable.

Try to stay out of the argument Dear Annie: My mother-in-law was desperate to have grandchildren, but when our daughter was born, Mom turned out to be a horrible grandmother. During visits to Grandma's house, our daughter had to entertain herself in a spare bedroom because Grandma's dogs didn't like kids, and Grandma wouldn't lock up her "babies" for the sake of ours. We planned family trips, but Grandma would always cancel at the last minute. We invited her to school plays and recitals, but Grandma said they were boring and told our daughter that she had no talent. Mom has a terrible temper and would slap our daughter for things like talking while the TV was on. Grandma did give our daughter lots of gifts, and our daughter always thanked her. But the gifts were thoughtless — anything Mom could pick up cheaply, with no consideration of age, gender or interests. She once bought our teenage girl a toy that was appropriate for a 3-year-old boy. My daughter is a young adult now. She is polite to her grandmother when she sees her and sends holiday cards with short notes, but otherwise avoids her. She considers Grandma to be a well-intentioned lunatic. The problem is, Grandma has decided that my daughter "owes" her attention since she was such a "loving, wonderful grandmother," and she is upset about the very sensible boundaries our daughter is drawing for involving Grandma in her personal life. I am being blamed for the distance between them and am expected to fix it. Grandma is hypersensitive. Suggesting that she might need to do things differently makes her furious. Any ideas? — In the Middle Dear Middle: You need to stay out of this as much as possible. Your daughter should continue to send cards and thank her grandmother for any gifts, and you can encourage her to periodically phone Grandma or email her with whatever updates she is willing to share. Beyond that, express sympathy when Mom wants more, and ignore as much as you can. This isn't your responsibility. Dear Annie: An acquaintance sits beside me at the counter in a local diner several times a week. We both go there because neither of us likes to eat alone. Here's the problem: When "Bill" comes in, he sits beside me, but won't speak unless I speak to him first. I actually have waited for more than an hour, and he wouldn't talk. Once I do get him to speak, he can't hold up his end of the conversation. He'll mumble a few words, and then he's done. During a two-hour dinner, Bill said fewer than 14 words. I counted. Yet he always makes a beeline for the open stool beside me. By the way, Bill does this with everyone, not just me. I don't want to hurt his feelings, but this is so exasperating, it's affecting my health. — Frustrated in Texas Dear Texas: Bill sounds socially awkward. Having a conversation is difficult and stressful for him. He sits near you because, for whatever reason, you make him feel comfortable. He doesn't expect you to converse with him, although he probably appreciates the brief attempts. If you can understand that Bill considers you good company as you are, you might not feel so pressured to get him to talk, which ought to alleviate some of your frustration. Dear Annie: "Patty" was worried that her husband would find her uninteresting once the kids left home. One of the best empty nest activities is bridge. It's a very social activity, and strategy games are thought to help prevent dementia and other age-related problems. There are bridge clubs throughout the United States, and once you learn the game, you can travel with your spouse for a combination of bridge playing and touring. My wife and I met through bridge. Patty can get more information at the American Contract Bridge League website at acbl.org. — Los Angeles Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HINTS FROM HELOISE

Don’t forget, the business is in front of you Dear Heloise: I am submitting one of my pet peeves. When I am in a store and the salesperson is in the process of waiting on me, the phone rings, and he or she chooses to interrupt my transaction to hold an extended conversation with the party on the phone. When a salesperson tells the caller to hold and continues to wait on me, I always compliment him or her for taking care of the business at hand, rather than talking further with the person telephoning. I believe that all employers should stress this to their employees. — A Reader in Texas

Hints from Heloise Columnist This is a common complaint, and one I’ve addressed before in my column. It’s a Catch-22! The salesperson should be instructed about how management wants this handled. — Heloise WILDFIRE READY Dear Heloise: We had a large wildfire in our area.

Knowing how fast we may have to move out, I packed a large rolling suitcase with my photo albums and locked it in my car. I have a duffel bag packed with a couple of sets of comfortable clothes, my medical history, a flash drive with backup computer files and my address list. In case we have to evacuate, I have an empty suitcase in which to put my medications, a pillow, a blanket and my purse. I’ll also throw in the county and state maps that I’m using to follow the progression of the fire and would need in order to plan my escape route. —

Loretta in Texas Loretta, great for you to be so prepared. Fires can spread so quickly — you can’t waste time gathering things. Make sure to include cellphone chargers, some extra cash and a little food and water, just to be safe. — Heloise FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Other uses for a vegetable peeler: • Make thin cheese slices for a salad. • Shape a candle. • Remove celery strings. • Make chocolate shavings. • Sharpen pencils or crayons. — Heloise

BEETLE BAILEY

Your Individual Horoscope Monday, August 6, 2012 Advancement in your chosen field of endeavor will be possible in the coming months, especially if your quality work has yet to be properly recognized. It isn’t likely you’ll be overlooked this time around. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Lady Luck is apt to be kinder to you if you’re trying to pull off something major, so don’t waste time on trivial pursuits. Regardless of the nature of your work, elevate your efforts. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You should give top priority to developing a second source of income. Chances are you’ll be extremely lucky if you apply yourself toward projects of this ilk. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Good things could happen if you associate with as many dynamic individuals as you can. Seek companions who are positive, productive and enthusiastic. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Great rewards could come from situations where you draw upon the resources and/or talents of others rather than just your own. Be sure to share the windfall with those who helped, however. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Persons with whom you enjoy good social relationships will point you in some interesting directions. If you’re in need of a special favor, buzz them first. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Be persistent when it comes to financial matters, because whatever you touch could turn into gold. These opportunities have good bottom lines. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If a project in which you’re presently involved has been too loosely woven to be effective, take it upon yourself do something about it. It definitely can be improved upon. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You’re in a unique cycle where ways can be found to increase your earning potential. However, it’ll be up to you to utilize your creativity and imagination toward these ends. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Take advantage of your promotional skills, which are likely to be outstanding — this is especially so if you are trying to advance an issue that you feel strongly about. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Let your generosity prevail when you see a needy party whom you could easily help if you wanted to. It’s possible you’ll get back twice as much as you give, but perhaps in an unexpected way. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Should you get involved in a group endeavor, chances are you’ll be a positive catalyst. You could prove to be lucky for everybody concerned. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Your instincts to succeed could be more acute than usual, making success for you far more likely once you get a chance to clarify your objectives and motives.

105 Announcements

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.

Streak snapped Reds slowed by Pirates, still on historic pace CINCINNATI (AP) — Dusty Baker admits that he and the Cincinnati Reds were starting to get a little greedy. Winning games at a historic pace can do that to a team. The Reds’ five-game winning streak came to an end Sunday as A.J. Burnett remained undefeated against them this season to help the Pittsburgh Pirates salvage the finale of their threegame series with a 6-2 win. The Reds had won 15 of their previous 16 games and 22 of 25, a run of success not enjoyed by the franchise since 1890, the team said citing research from the Elias Sports Bureau. “You get greedy,” Baker admitted when asked if simply winning the series was enough.

“When you start winning every day, two out of three isn’t good enough. We went 5-2 on the home stand, but you always want more.” Neil Walker hit a two-run home run and All-Star center fielder Andrew McCutchen added a solo shot as Pittsburgh cut the Reds’ lead in the National League Central Division to 4 1-2 games. Burnett (14-3) allowed just one hit after the first inning and retired 18 straight batters before walking Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick with two outs in the ninth. He allowed three hits and two runs with three walks and seven strikeouts in 8 2-3 innings to improve to 3-0 in three starts against the Reds

this season. “He can command his pitches to left-handers,” Bruce said. “He knows what he wants to do, and he’s aggressive. He’s having a great year.” Joel Hanrahan got the final out for his 32nd save. The Reds are still 16-4 since All-Star first baseman Joey Votto left the lineup with a torn meniscus in his left knee that required surgery. Bruce doubled in Drew Stubbs to give the Reds a 1-0 lead in the first, the fifth time in seven games on the home stand that the Reds scored in the first inning, but Pittsburgh took a 21 lead in the second on Neil

AKRON (AP) — Keegan Bradley only wanted a chance to get into a playoff Sunday at Firestone. All it took was a clutch par, along with a stunning collapse by Jim Furyk, for Bradley to win the Bridgestone Invitational and wrap up a spot on the Ryder Cup team. Bradley closed with a 6-under 64, and the final stroke was the most important a 15-foot putt to save par from a plugged lie in the bunker. Furyk, who led for 71 holes and looked solid throughout the final round, chopped up the 18th hole for a double bogey to throw away a chance at his first win since the 2010 Tour Championship. He missed the green from the fairway. His chip with one foot in the sand barely cleared the bunker and stayed in the thick collar. He hit a weak chip to 5 feet, and his bogey putt never had a chance. Furyk dropped his putter when the ball left his blade. He went from what appeared to be a certain win to a 69 and a tie for second with Steve Stricker, who made four birdies on his last five holes for a 64. “I’ve got no one to blame but myself,” Furyk said. “There’s no way I should have made more than 5.” Bradley won for the first time since last year in PGA Championship, and now goes to Kiawah Island to defend his title with a lot more confidence. “I still can’t believe it,” he said. Bradley was four shots behind going into the final round, and was six shots back when Furyk opened with three straight birdies. Bradley kept pecking away at the lead, holing a 25-foot birdie putt on the seventh, scrambling for par on the 12th, and starting the back nine with a pair of birdies.

Scholarships to be precious commodity at PSU STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Brennan Franklin was ready to play junior college football at Eastern Arizona, when Penn State defensive coordinator Ted Roof called the linebacker. The scholarship offer from a Division I school was too good to pass up, even if it came after the NCAA had announced sanctions against Penn State including a significant decline in scholarships. While Penn State may have lost more than a half-dozen players in light of the penalties July 23, Franklin will have the distinction of being the first scholarship player to sign in Happy Valley since the NCAA announced its decisions.

The Nittany Lions open preseason camp Monday. “The first thing he asked was if I’d ever been in a fight,” Franklin said of Roof in a recent phone interview from his hometown of Peoria, Ariz. He replied “yes.” “He said, ‘That’s good, because that’s what this is going to be.’” Football scholarships will be a precious commodity soon at Penn State. The NCAA as part of its landmark punishment of the program for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal reduced the maximum number of scholarships that Penn State could offer each year from 25 to 15 for a fouryear period, starting with the 2013 recruiting class. And Penn State can’t have more than 65

scholarship players at any time for a four-year period starting in 2014, down from 85. The scholarship reductions could sap new coach Bill O’Brien of the ability to nurture promising high school recruits who aren’t ready to contribute right away in college all while Penn State must also prepare for foes who don’t face such restrictions. And Penn State is already taking a roster hit after the NCAA allowed current players to transfer and have immediate eligibility with their new school. Nine players have done so, the latest being wideout Justin Brown. The leading returning receiver with 35 catches, Brown is the first senior to leave Penn State.

Junior tailback Silas Redd is the most crushing loss after the 1,200-yard rusher left last week for Southern California. Brown and Redd are the only two starters to leave, while the transfer of standout kicker-punter Anthony Fera will hurt special teams. At the least, the entire firststring defense is expected to remain intact. Still, this wasn’t the kind of makeover that O’Brien expected when the former Patriots offensive coordinator came from New England in January to take over for fired Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno. O’Brien has said he has a plan to get through the crisis, but hasn’t yet offered details.

Reds ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Walker’s 12th homer of the season, a two-run shot that tied Walker’s season high. After Stubbs tied the score with his 14th homer of the season, the Pirates went back ahead on Marte’s two-run triple that followed singles by Gaby Sanchez and Clint Barmes. Homer Bailey (9-7) allowed nine hits and four runs with one walk and three strikeouts in 4 2-3 innings on Sunday. “He couldn’t find his arm slot,” Baker said. “His balls were coming back

over the plate. He got a slider up to Walker. He’s been tough on us. He’s been a thorn in our side the whole time. They hit the ball hard, but they found some holes, too. We’ll chalk this one up and go on the road.” McCutchen led off the ninth against Logan Ondrusek by tying his single-season career high with his 23rd homer of the season and first since July 17. The Reds and Pirates meet six more times, three in Cincinnati in mid-

September and three in Pittsburgh the last weekend of September. Rookie infielder Todd Frazier is ready after enjoying the boisterous weekend series, which included sellout crowds on Friday and Saturday and a near-sellout on Sunday. “It felt like a playoff atmosphere,” Frazier said. “We’ve got to keep coming up clutch. We won’t win all of them, but we’ll give our best effort. We can’t take anybody lightly, especially Milwaukee, with their hitting and pitching.

Everybody in our division is pretty good. We’ve got to keep doing what we do.” Baker hopes “doing what we do” includes not letting up now that the Pirates have left town. “It was intense all the time, but we’ve got to beat everybody else, too,” he said. “We’ll worry about the Pirates when they come up on the schedule.” Tigers 10, Indians 8 (10 inn.) DETROIT — Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run homer to cap a stunning five-run rally by Detroit

with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning, giving the Tigers a 10-8 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday. Cleveland has lost nine straight, and this one slipped away in unthinkable fashion. With two outs and nobody on and the Indians up 8-5 Chris Perez (0-3) walked Alex Avila and pinch-hitter Andy Dirks. Austin Jackson doubled home a run, and Omar Infante’s two-run single tied it. Cabrera followed with a towering drive that even-

tually cleared the fence in left-center. Detroit never had the lead before then. Travis Hafner and Ezequiel Carrera had hit back-to-back solo homers for Cleveland in the 10th. Detroit’s Darin Downs (1-0) earned his first career win. The Tigers remained within 1 1/2 games of the first-place Chicago White Sox in the AL Central, winning a wild game in which catcher Gerald Laird and manager Jim Leyland were ejected in the second inning.

Son of Eagles coach found dead

Colts’ Luck brushes off praise; focused on improving

BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) — Garrett Reid, the troubled 29-year-old son of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid, was found dead Sunday in a dorm room at the club’s Lehigh University training camp, where he spends most of his summers with his father. Police said the death was not suspicious, and the cause was under investigation. The coach’s oldest son had a long history of drug problems, once admitting “I liked being a drug dealer” and went to prison for a heroin-fueled car crash. Reid’s death stunned the Eagles, who gathered for a team prayer before a morning walkthrough. “This is a very difficult situation for us all,” quarterback Michael Vick said following practice their first without their head coach in five years..

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck throws during the NFL team’s football training camp in Anderson, Ind. on Aug. 2. another number five interceptions. So when asked to grade his performance in Week 1, he responded bluntly: “Too many interceptions.” He didn’t throw any Sunday. To correct the mistakes, the Stanford grad has been working overtime to review practice video and read defenses better. He’s gotten a full immersion into how to play against the complicated 3-4 defense. He’s spent countless hours memorizing the playbook and working with receivers on timing. Yes, Luck has carved out a little time for a few other things. He signed hundreds of autographs for gleeful fans when practice ended. He

He brought in Chuck Pagano, a firsttime head coach; Ryan Grigson, a first-time general manager; and released Peyton Manning to give Luck a clear path to the starting job. But Luck isn’t the only player learning how to do things with these new-look Colts. Of the 90 players on the current camp roster, 32 played with the Colts last season and some of those returnees, such as Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis, are lining up in new places. So far, Pagano has liked the results.

spent some time with his father, Oliver, when the West Virginia athletic director made an impromptu appearance Friday at Anderson University, a Division III school located about 30 miles northeast of the team complex in Indy. And, of course, there was that singing exhibition. Otherwise, Luck has been a workaholic. “Just because everything is installed (offensively) doesn’t mean it’s all down pat in an airtight lock,” he said. “It’ll be nice to be able to go back and say, ‘OK, we’ve run this play a couple of times now; now let’s really get a good feel for it.’ The communication has been great between all of the quarterbacks and coach (Bruce) Arians, so

to go except right into the side of the No. 17. Hamlin was taken to the infield care center and complained of discomfort around his abdomen but was released. Gordon, who was sixth in the restart necessitated by Kurt Busch’s wreck, took off and took the lead. “I know that you don’t want to win them quite like this, but we’ve earned it because of all the things that we’ve done this year,” Gordon said. Johnson blamed a right rear flat tire for sparking the accidents. “I shouldn’t feel bad about that, but not much you can do with a right-rear flat,” he said. Then the downpour came.

It wasn’t immediately clear if all 10 people were actually struck by lightning in the parking lot behind the grandstands, nor was it known whether one or multiple strikes occurred during the thunderstorm. Two people were taken to hospitals in critical condition after the strike, racetrack officials said. President Brandon Igdalsky said one of them later died at Pocono Medical Center, but he provided no further details.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 “When I saw the opening to get inside, I was taking it,” Gordon said. It couldn’t have come at a better time. The skies opened and cars were ordered off the track. The race was called moments later with 98 of the 160 scheduled laps completed. Gordon, who turned 41 on Saturday, had been hit by a string of bad breaks this season and knew he needed wins over the final six races before the Chase cutoff to have any shot at running for a fifth championship during the 10-race playoffs. Gordon moved into the second wild-card spot that would guarantee him a berth in the field. Gordon, who also won a rain-shortened race at Pocono in 2007, passed Bill Eilliott for most career wins at Pocono with six. Kasey Kahne was second, followed by Martin Truex Jr., Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart. Kahne refused to rule out another Gordon championship run if he stays in the Chase field. “Absolutely. It’s Jeff Gordon. Look what he’s done,” Kahne said. With the storms coming spotters told their drivers the heavy rain was coming Johnson was in prime position to follow last week’s win in Indy with another trip to Victory Lane.

ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) — All week, Andrew Luck heard the rave reviews. They came from former Colts coach Tony Dungy, Pro Bowl receiver Reggie Wayne, veteran defensive lineman Cory Redding and Adam Vinatieri, the best clutch kicker in NFL history. The consensus: Luck is no ordinary rookie. Luck, the No. 1 overall draft pick, disagrees. “It’s always very nice when two guys of such high caliber (Dungy and Vinatieri) say those things, but I feel like a scrub rookie every day, so far,” he said. Scrub rookie? Luck, the $22.1 million man, took most of the snaps at practice this week, a trend that’s likely to continue throughout camp and the regular season and something few rookies get to do. Most of those who have watched Luck this week have been impressed with the way he’s handled the pressure. Dungy praised Luck’s decisiveness on the opening day of camp, saying Luck looked like a third- or fourth-year player. Safety Tom Zbikowski made it clear Luck certainly doesn’t act like a rookie. Wayne applauded Luck’s ability to throw a “strong” ball, and almost universally, players and coaches believe Luck’s intelligence is off the charts. “Andrew’s going to be good. He’s going to be really good,” Wayne said. “He’s really smart. He knows what’s going on around him. He understands the concept; he understands the terminology. He understands it all.” Luck appreciates the compliments, but he’s just trying to be realistic. Like most rookies, his early performances have been up and down. Reporters who charted Luck’s throws through the first six practices pointed out he was 122 of 162 with seven TDs in team drills. In Sunday’s workout, he was 28 of 41 with five TDs. Luck, who has been hyped as the most NFLready quarterback to enter the league since the Colts took Peyton Manning with the No. 1 overall pick in 1998, is worried about

Sunday and told reporters afterward he expected Reid back this week. The Eagles host Pittsburgh in their preseason opener on Thursday night. “There’s choices to be made when tragedy happens,” Lurie said, pausing to hold back tears. “You can become stronger and even more focused and learn from it and treat life as a challenge, or you can bow down. And Andy is somebody he said to me, ‘I’m going to hit that curveball and hit it out of the park’ and on the field and off the field. And that’s the message he wanted me to have.” The police chief at Lehigh, Edward Shupp, said a 911 call was made at 7:20 a.m. about Reid, and that the 29-year-old was dead when a policeman arrived at the campus dormitory. The police and Northampton County coroner were investigating.

American takes 1st in 400 LONDON (AP) — Disappointment, tears and that oh-so-unsatisfying color bronze are all in the past for Sanya Richards-Ross. On this trip to the Olympics, she closed the deal. Four years after a late fade left her crying and wearing the Olympic bronze medal, Richards-Ross won the 400meter gold she always thought she could. “What I have learned is you don’t win the race until you win the race,” RichardsRoss said. “I knew I had to cross the finish line first to call myself the Olympic champion.”

Serena Williams, left, and Venus Williams of the United States compete against Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic during the gold medal women’s doubles match at the All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, London Sunday at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Sisters are golden Serena, Venus Williams win doubles title in straight sets WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Serena Williams relishes her role as copycat little sister. Even if it takes her 12 years. Now she has that Olympic double just like Venus. The overpowering American pair won the doubles title at the Olympics on Sunday, with Serena adding to the singles gold she won on Centre Court at Wimbledon a day earlier. “Crazy,” Serena said. “I’m always copying her. I forgot that she did it in Sydney and I do it here. We’re the same doubles team, we just split this to singles, so it’s cool.” The sisters beat Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic 6-4, 6-4 under the roof on a rainy afternoon at the All England Club. Venus with her red, white and blue braids pulled back into a bun closed the match on the very grass she has long loved with a backhand volley winner after the Czechs saved a pair of match points. “We all talk about this, ‘We have so many medals,’ but to be able to add

to that, it’s like an unbelievable feeling,” Venus said. “You know that in that count, there you are. It feels amazing.” On Saturday, Serena beat Maria Sharapova 6-0, 6-1 for the singles gold. She joined Steffi Graf as the only women to complete the Golden Slam winning the Olympics and the four majors. When the Americans in the crowd at Centre Court broke into a chant of “U-S-A! U-S-A!” as the players left the court, the sisters pumped their fists, turned to wave, then slapped a high-five. This was a command performance the sisters didn’t drop a set through their five matches in London. The medal ceremony had to wait some five hours after the outdoor bronze-medal match which was delayed by rain and both sisters literally let their hair down for their moment on the podium. Venus sported bright red lipstick, and Serena put her arm around her sister’s waist and embraced her from the side.

Third-seeded Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova of Russia took the bronze by beating the top-seeded U.S. pair of Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond 4-6, 6-4, 6-1. With Bob and Mike Bryan taking the gold in men’s doubles Saturday, U.S. tennis made it three golds in two days. “I feel great to be a part of this U.S. team this year,” Venus said. Serena became tennis’ first double gold medalist at an Olympics since Venus won singles and doubles at the 2000 Sydney Games. The sisters also won the doubles gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. And with Sunday’s victory, each has a record four Olympic tennis gold medals. While Serena was thrilled to win on her own Saturday, with Venus cheering from the family box, the doubles is what she most cared about coming to London. Especially considering all the emotional and physical struggles for Venus, who was diagnosed last year with an autoimmune disease that causes fatigue.

Murray beats Federer for gold WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — en, Roger Federer, and basking in the Andy Murray stood with the Union roar of the Centre Court crowd. No wonder the often dour Jack draped over his shoulders, an Olympic gold medal around his neck, Scotsman was grinning. Murray won one for the home flanked by the man he had just beat-

team Sunday, beating Federer 6-2, 61, 6-4 in the tennis final at Wimbledon. The victory marked a career breakthrough for Murray. He has lost all four of his Grand Slam finals, three against Federer, including Wimbledon a month ago. “It has been the best week of my tennis career by a mile,” Murray said. “I’ve had a lot of tough losses. This is the best way to come back from the Wimbledon final. I’ll never forget it.” For Federer, the drubbing marked another Olympic disappointment. Playing in the games for the fourth time, he sought a victory to complete a career Golden Slam but settled for silver his first singles medal.

LONDON (AP) — More than a dozen members of Holley Mangold’s family watched her finish 10th in weightlifting at the London Olympics on Sunday. Perhaps none were as proud as her brother Nick, star center for the New York Jets. “The fact that she has only been doing this for a handful of years and here she is on a world stage at the Olympics competing — I think that’s fantastic,” said Nick Mangold, who left training camp to see his sister compete. “She has the world in front of her. If she continues with it, I think she can do some great things,” he said. He joined his parents, two sisters and nine other members of their family in the crowd at the ExCeL arena in London. He will fly back to the United States on Monday morning. The 22-year-old Holley Mangold didn’t have a perfect competition. She hurt her right wrist in the snatch portion and came out for the clean and jerk portion wearing a bandage. Then the back of her uniform ripped. She lifted 105 kilograms in the snatch and 135 kilograms in the clean and jerk for a total of 240 kilograms. That’s just over 529 pounds — and still 30 pounds below her personal best.

Bolt wins second consecutive gold medal Jamaican cruises past field in 100 LONDON (AP) — Pulling away from the pack with every long stride, Usain Bolt crossed the finish line and wagged his right index finger. Yes, he’s still No. 1 in the 100-meter dash. Maybe not better than ever, but Bolt is definitely back. Only sixth-fastest of the eight runners to the halfway mark Sunday night, Bolt erased that deficit and overwhelmed a star-studded field to win in 9.63 seconds, an Olympic record that let him join Carl Lewis as the only men with consecutive gold medals in the marquee track and field event at the Summer Games. “Means a lot, because a lot of people were doubting me. A lot of people were saying I wasn’t going to win, I didn’t look good. There was a lot of talk,” Bolt said. “It’s an even greater feeling to come out here and defend my title and show the world I’m still No. 1, I’m still the best.”
