PIQUA — Sequestration and federal spending cuts have resulted in local cuts to the nine-county area of the Council on Rural Services (CORS), though the organization’s executive director said Miami County is not one of those counties affected. Shirley Hathaway, CORS executive director, said the board of trustees approved a realignment plan for the Head Start and Early Head Start programs that will impact those in Auglaize, Greene and Shelby counties.

Head Start programs

The council, which provides educational and support services to children and families, made the cuts earlier this week and laid off 37 staff members in the wake of the sequestration, Hathaway said. As a result of realignment, seven Head Start classrooms were closed and the program will accept 171 fewer children. The total budget cuts that went into effect total $646,000, Hathaway added. Hathaway said the plan in those counties that are affected by the cuts is to create some home-based services that families can benefit from. “We made sure that counties that are affected has at last one centerbased program that we can transport some of the most needy children to,” said Hathaway.

can receive the best education and support,” she said. “Our emphasis is supporting the children and families.” And she further emphasized how those cuts will “negatively impact” local jobs and people. “We have reduced expenses in the past few years. Now we have no choice but to cut whole classrooms of children and staff to meet this new federal cut in funding,” Hathaway said. “But by doing these strategic changes now, we will be able to position the program to excel towards our mission of providing the finest

high-quality early education and care services for children and families in our Kids Learning Place centers.” Janet Julian, CORS board chairperson, stated in a press release this week that CORS is an “excellent agency that provides quality programming and services,” but “unfortunately we can no longer provide services to as many children and families” because the the cuts. But Hathaway said she remains optimistic about the future of the agency and the services it provides to those who truly

need them. “In the State of the Union address the president said … he wanted to put money in the budget for early education for children and an expansion of services for Head Start,” Hathaway said. “So I feel very encouraged about that.” But she also spoke of how saddening the cuts are: “I believe it is a sad day as (our services) are for children and their families.” For more information, visit the County on Rural Services’ website at www.councilonruralservices.org.

Mandela was approaching the end of his life. Well-wishers have delivered flowers and messages of support to the Pretoria hospital where he is being treated, and prayer sessions were held around the country on Thursday. Jacob President Zuma’s office said in a statement that he received the encouraging update from the medical team that is treating Mandela. Zuma had canceled an international trip on Thursday, instead visiting Mandela for the second time in two days. “I canceled my visit to Mozambique today so that I can see him and confer with the doctors,” Zuma said in the statement. “He is much better today than he was when I saw him last night.” In April, Zuma gave an overly upbeat assessment about Mandela’s condition. At that time, state television broadcast footage of a visit by Zuma and other political leaders to Mandela’s home. Zuma said at the time that Mandela was

in good shape, but the footage showed him silent and unresponsive, even when Zuma tried to hold his hand. Mandela, who was imprisoned for 27 years during white racist rule and became president in all-race elections in 1994, was taken to a hospital on June 8 for what the government said was a recurring lung infection. Zuma urged people to pray for Mandela, and continue with their work and daily activities even while he is hospitalized. The president’s office said it was disturbed by what it called rumors about Mandela’s health and appealed for respect for the privacy and dignity of the former leader. reports Unconfirmed about Mandela have swirled on social media and other forums. Mandela’s condition is acknowledged to be grave. He is on life support systems, according to a few television networks that quote anonymous sources, and presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj has declined to confirm or deny

those reports. Makaziwe Mandela, one of Mandela’s daughters, echoed the criticism, saying foreign media coverage of her father’s illness had become intrusive, particularly at the Pretoria hospital where many journalists have gathered. “There’s sort of a racist element with many of the foreign media, where they just cross boundaries,” she said in the SABC interview. “It’s like truly vultures waiting when a lion has devoured a buffalo, waiting there for the last carcasses. That’s the image that we have, as a family.” She said: “We don’t mind the interest. But I just think it has gone overboard.” In comments posted on the SABC web site, Makaziwe Mandela said “anything is imminent” because her father, referred to affectionately by many South Africans as “Tata,” or “Father,” is in a very critical state. “I want to emphasize again that it’s only God who knows when the time to go is,” she said.

“So we will wait with Tata. He’s still giving us hope by opening his eyes, he’s still reactive to touch, we will live with that hope until the final end comes.” Beginning a trip to Africa, President Obama said in Senegal on Thursday that his thoughts and prayers with South were Africans and in particular the Mandela family. He said he was inspired, as a law school student in the early 1990s, to see Mandela step forward after decades of imprisonment to help deliver democracy in a spirit of reconciliation with his former captors. “It gave me a sense of what is possible in the world when righteous people, when people of good will, work together on behalf of a larger cause,” said Obama, who described Mandela as a personal hero. “And if and when he passes from this place, one thing I think we’ll all know is that his legacy is one that will linger on throughout the ages,” Obama said.

Friday, though Mandela’s precarious condition adds some uncertainty to the agenda. Obama spoke reverently about the impact that Mandela’s struggle against apartheid had on his own activism, as well as about the 94-year-old’s influence in Africa and around the world. “If and when he passes from this place, one thing I think we’ll all know is that his legacy is one that will linger on throughout the ages,” said Obama, who has sometimes been linked to Mandela given their shared status as their nations’ first black presidents. Mandela’s democratic influence in Africa is at the core of Obama’s trip. The three countries he will visit were selected as a signal of U.S. support for African nations that have embraced democracy in a region where the legacy of corruption and authori-

tarianism have been difficult to overcome. Sall, for example, won the presidency in Senegal last year by ousting an incumbent president who attempted to change the constitution to make it easier for him to be reelected and for his son to succeed him. Africa’s democratic movements have not been accompanied in most places by equal rights for gays and lesbians. A report Monday by Amnesty International said 38 African countries criminalize homosexuality. In four of those Mauritania, northern Nigeria, southern Somalia and Sudan the punishment is death. Discrimination against gays is the norm. In Uganda, evictions of homosexuals by landlords occur regularly, says the Amnesty report. Vigilante groups in several countries have posted the names of homosexuals on-

line or denounced them on the radio, forcing them to go into hiding to avoid mob violence. In Senegal, suspected homosexuals who were buried in Muslim cemeteries were disinterred in several towns and villages, and their corpses were dragged through the streets. On another subject, Obama was pressed in his news conference about the status of former government contractor Edward Snowden, who has acknowledged leaking highly classified documents detailing sweeping U.S. government surveillance programs. The Chinese government let Snowden leave Hong Kong, where he had been hiding, to travel to Russia, where he is now believed to be holed up in the transit zone at Moscow’s airport. Obama dismissed the notion of deploying U.S. military resources to de-

tain Snowden, saying “I’m not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker.” On still another topic, the president had harsh words for the Supreme Court on its ruling this week that overturned key elements of the Voting Rights Act. Obama declared the decision “a mistake.” “I might not be here as president had it not been for those who courageously helped to pass the Voting Rights Act,” Obama said. The president is being accompanied throughout his trip by wife, daughters Malia and Sasha, and mother-in-law Marian Robinson. Following the president’s meetings with Sall, the family boarded a ferry bound for Goree Island, which by some accounts was the center of the Atlantic slave trade. The Obamas were given a tour of the salmon-col-

ored House of Slaves where Africans were held before being sold into slavery. The president then peered out into the vast Atlantic through the Door of No Return, where shackled men, women and children left Africa, inching across a plank to the hull of a waiting ship. “Obviously, for an African-American, an African-American president, to be able to visit this site, I think, gives me even greater motivation in terms of human rights around the world,” Obama said after his tour. The president’s stop on Goree Island was the first of two visits on the trip highlighting racial change in Africa. The second is scheduled for Sunday at South Africa’s Robben Island, where Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years in prison.

death by one sister, Willa Faye Botner. Mr. Layton was a retired steelworker, and a member of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles in Sidney. He was a good and kind man who got along with everyone. He enjoyed the simple things in life: hamburgers, mowing the lawn, tools, trains, NASCAR, and spending time with his family. He was a wonderful provider and gave his family and friends great advice. His number one financial rule was to pay yourself first and save for your future. A memorial service for Wayne will be held at Green Valley Baptist Church in Henderson, Nev., on Friday, July 5, at 10 a.m. All are welcome to attend.

Feds: Boston suspect downloaded bomb instructions BY TOM HAYS Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — Boston Marathon suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev downloaded bomb-making instructions from an al-Qaida magazine, gathered online material on Islamic jihad and martyrdom, and later scrawled anti-American messages inside the boat where he lay wounded, a federal indictment charged Thursday. The 30-count indictment contains the bombing charges, punishable by the death penalty, that were brought in April against the 19-year-old Tsarnaev, including use

of a weapon of mass destruction to kill. It also contains many new charges covering the slaying of an MIT police officer and the carjacking of a motorist during the getaway attempt that left Tsarnaev’s older brother, Tamerlan, dead. “Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s justice will be in the next world, but for his brother, accountability will begin right here in the district of Massachusetts,” Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley, whose jurisdiction includes Boston, said at a news conference with federal prosecutors. The indictment provides one of the most de-

tailed public explanations to date of the brothers’ alleged motive Islamic extremism and the role the Internet may have played in influencing them. Three people were killed and more than 260 wounded by the two pressure-cooker bombs that went off near the finish line of the marathon on April 15. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured four days later, hiding in a boat parked in a backyard in Watertown, Mass. According to the indictment, he scrawled messages on the inside of the vessel that said, among other things, “The U.S.

Government is killing our innocent civilians,” ”I can’t stand to see such evil go unpunished,” and “We Muslims are one body, you hurt one you hurt us all.” The Tsarnaev brothers had roots in the turbulent Russian regions of Dagestan and Chechnya, which have become recruiting grounds for Muslim extremists. They had been living in the U.S. about a decade. But the indictment made no mention of any larger conspiracy beyond the brothers, and no reference to any direct overseas contacts with extremists. Instead, the indictment suggests the

Internet played an important role in the suspects’ radicalization. Before the attack, according to the indictment, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev downloaded onto his computer the summer 2010 issue of Inspire, an online English-language magazine published by alQaida. The issue detailed how to make bombs from pressure cookers, explosive powder extracted from fireworks, and lethal shrapnel. He also downloaded extremist Muslim literature, including “Defense of the Muslim Lands, the First Obligation After Imam,” which advocates “violence designed to ter-

rorize the perceived enemies of Islam,” the indictment said. Another tract downloaded included a foreword by Anwar al-Awlaki, an American propagandist for al-Qaida who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in 2011.

State Briefs Proposed red-light camera ban approved COLUMBUS (AP) — Lawmakers in the Ohio House have approved a measure that would bar local governments across the state from using cameras to determine whether motorists have run red lights or been speeding. Members of the House voted 61-32 on Wednesday to move the measure to the Ohio Senate for further consideration. Rep. Ron Maag is the sponsor of the proposal. The Lebanon Republican says the main goal of the cameras is not to increase public safety but to generate revenue for local governments. Those who want law enforcement to continue monitoring drivers using the cameras say the technology prevents accidents and saves lives. The bill includes an exemption for school zones. Cameras would be allowed to operate during school recess, opening and closing hours provided that a police officer is present.

House approves human trafficking bill COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio lawmakers have approved a measure that increases penalties for human trafficking offenders and adds protections for victims. The Ohio House unanimously endorsed the legislation Wednesday. The bill says minors or developmentally disabled people should be considered victims of human trafficking if they're recruited or held captive to engage in sexual activi-

ties. House Speaker William Batchelder says the legislation gives authorities the tools they need to crack down on traffickers. Among several other provisions, it requires offenders convicted of solicitation to register as sex offenders if the people they tried to lure are under 18 years old. The crime of soliciting a minor who is younger than 18 or is developmentally disabled would increase from a misdemeanor to a felony offense. The legislation now moves to the Senate for consideration.

Politics

In Mass., Markey readies to make jump to U.S. Senate

Serving Piqua since 1883

Commentary

This column is for Susie S

usie is a friend of ours here in Piqua, but she has told me she has never read my column.Said she never will. We differ in our politics. We don’t discuss it. She doesn’t want to be exposed to my views in this paper. But sitting at dinner we can talk for hours.We can agree on most things going on in Piqua and the world. We both see this silly and scary world through the same lens. We don’t even have to dance around the subject. We just make sure that we don’t bring up the extremes of either party or repeat clichés. Psst… if you readers promise not to tell my party,I even hug her as we part. Yes, I hug a Republican. Even worse, I hug my daughter-in-law regularly, and she is in the Tea Party…. remember, you promised not to tell. Susie and I do have one political thing in common. We both listen to the news and say: “Where is the outrage?” We just need to look around. It is all around us. It’s on Talk Radio, cable and the Internet. It is everywhere.We are up to our ears with it. Half this outrage is aimed at my beliefs and representatives and half at Susie and her beliefs, which in turn outrages us both.So we skip along pretending that politics doesn’t exist except with those we agree with. Let me tell you a scary extreme. In 2004, I was campaigning in a town near Sidney. Out of fear, I will not name it here. I kept going from door to door and those who answered all met me with blank looks and stiff postures. They all said the same thing: “We don’t talk politics here,” each in those JACK ROBINSON exact words. Then not Columnist waiting for me to speak, they slowly closed the door.After a while I noticed that there was no one in the wide streets or sidewalks, no one tending the neat lawns, no dogs, no cars, just closed blinds with TVs flickering in the rooms. I took my Kerry button and hid it in my pocket and got out of there. Some bright summer afternoon I will go back to see if this town really is there. We all need to talk. All the Jacks and all the Susies need to talk. Even if our faces turn red and we sputter.This is the way democracy works. This is the way it was designed to work. The only way it can work. We start out with what we agree on — and this is a whole lot if we avoid the extremes. We each bend a little,respect each other’s views.We work together for an answer we can both live with,that will achieve our common goals such as good education,a strong economy, fair treatment of citizens, and so many others. There is so much middle ground on gun control, birth control, the budget, debt, and on and on. We the people need to run our democracy.The political parties don’t have this as a priority. They want to win the next election. As an example, I worked for the Obama campaign this last election. It was different than ever before. It was not going door to door and listening and giving our story. It was going to specific houses and asking specific questions and filling out forms for the programmers. I hated it. We were not campaigning, we were helping a bunch of techies figure out how to game the system. They were data mining and targeting likely age groups etc. that would vote for Obama, then getting them to the polls. And the Republicans? They were trying to game the election too (and still are) by suppressing the votes of inner-city voters,college students and the elderly,all whom have a tendency to vote for the Democratic Party. Neither party feels that making our democracy run is as important as finding its base, keeping them happy and getting them to the polls.Serving democracy is simply not their job.And this feeds into the need of cable news to have something to talk about 24/7. “Flash: we have more anger and controversy over the same thing to report. Stay tuned!” If working out America’s problems is going to be done, we are going to have to do it between ourselves. Last week I watched a TV show on Garrison Keillor. He was talking about the Americans he’s experienced.To quote Keillor:“This is a great country,and it wasn’t made by angry people … Kindness is a constant presence in America.” He was mainly referring to us Midwesterners.

MEDFORD, Mass. (AP) — Democrat Edward Markey, who’s served 37 years in the U.S. House, is preparing to make the leap to the Senate after winning Massachusetts’ special election to fill the seat left vacant by John Kerry’s resignation to become secretary of state. While Markey is pledging to work to pass major efforts an assault including weapons ban and to spark a green energy revolution and boost job growth in Massachusetts, voters hoping for a political firebrand will likely be disappointed. Throughout his career in Congress, Markey has taken a methodical, behind-thescenes approach to lawmaking, typically leaving the limelight to others. Given the relatively lowkey campaign Markey waged during the past five months, there’s little indication that he’s ready to break out of that mold. Speaking to reporters before greeting breakfast diners at a restaurant in a Boston suburb Wednesday morning, Markey called his win over Republican newcomer Gabriel Gomez “gratifying.” Markey captured 55 percent of the vote compared with 45 for Gomez, a businessman and former Navy SEAL. Markey credited the success to his positions on issues like gun control and abortion rights, arguing he was more in step with the majority of voters in Massachusetts. “It was a tremendous victory. I know that it was about the issues.I know that it was about the differences that existed between me and my opponent,” Markey said Wednesday. Markey also benefited from a superior organizing effort in a state where Democrats hold every statewide office and every seat in Congress — and where Republican Scott Brown’s surprise special Senate election win in 2010 still stings for Democratic loyalists. During the campaign, Markeytappedintothoseworries, saying a win by Gomez would embolden Senate Republicans even as Gomez worked to distance himself from the national party on issues like gay marriage, guns and global warming. But a more conciliatory Markey said Wednesday that he’s ready to reach across the political aisle in the Senate. “I’ve passed dozens of bills over the years, each one of them with a Republican,” Markey said. “I look forward to working with Republicans in the Senate on issues we can agree on.”

ENTERTAINMENT 5 Jackson’s teen son on life, death Divorced dad’s poor PIQUA DAILY CALL • WWW.DAILYCALL.COM

Friday, June 28, 2013

BY ANTHONY MCCARTNEY AP Entertainment Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Jackson’s oldest son described the frantic efforts to revive his father to a jury, a scene of tears and agony that ended a dozen idyllic years being raised by one of pop music’s superstars. Michael Joseph “Prince” Jackson Jr. told the panel Wednesday how he knew there was trouble in the singer’s rented mansion when heard screaming upstairs and went into his father’s bedroom. His father was laying halfway off the bed, eyes rolled up into the back of his head as his physician tried CPR. His sister Paris screamed for her father and Prince, now 16, told jurors that he was crying. On the ride to a hospital, the teenager recounted how he tried to calm the fears of his sister and younger brother by telling them that angels were watching over their father and everything would be fine. It wasn’t until his father’s doctor, Conrad Murray, came out of the emergency room and said he had died that Prince knew his father was gone. “Nothing will ever be the same,” the teenager told ju-

rors. He said while his younger brother doesn’t totally realize the loss, his sister has had the hardest time of them all and he has had many sleepless nights since his father died four years ago. His voice wavered at times and tears appeared to form in his eyes, but Prince remained composed as he publicly recounted for the first time what he saw the day his father died. The re-telling of the scene in Jackson’s bedroom came after nearly an hour of Prince describing happier times, showing photos of him and his sister when they were younger and a series of videos of the children filmed by their father. He testified in a lawsuit accusing concert promoter AEG Live LLC of negligently hiring Murray, who was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter for giving Jackson an overdose of the anesthetic propofol. AEG denies it hired the physician or bears any responsibility for the entertainer’s death. Wearing a black suit with a dark grey tie and his long brown hair tucked behind his ears, Prince testified that he saw AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips at the family’s rented mansion in a heated conversation with

Murray in the days before his father died. The teenager said Phillips grabbed Murray’s elbow. Phillips “looked aggressive to me,” Prince testified. His father wasn’t at home at the time and was probably rehearsing, he said. He said he saw his father cry after phone conversations with Phillips, and wanted more time to rehearse and was unhappy with pressure to perform his 50 scheduled comeback concerts titled “This Is It.” Murray’s attorney Valerie Wass and AEG defense attorney Marvin S. Putnam later denied outside court that the meeting Prince described ever happened. Putnam said Prince would be re-called to the witness stand during the defense case later in the trial. “I think as the testimony will show when he is called in our defense that’s not what happened,” Putnam said. “He was a 12-year-old boy who has had to endure this great tragedy.” The testimony began with the teenager showing jurors roughly 15 minutes of private family photos and home videos. He described growing up on Neverland Ranch and narrated videos of the property’s petting zoos, amusement park and other

Devo drummer Alan Myers dies of brain cancer THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Alan Myers, the former longtime drummer for the band Devo, best known for “Whip It,” has died after a battle with brain cancer. He was 58. Myers died Monday in Los Angeles, where he lived, Devo spokesman Michael Pilmer said Wednesday. Myers was the band’s drummer from 1976 to 1985 during Devo’s heyday. The group was formed in Akron, Ohio, in

the early 1970s by Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale, and introduced themselves to the world in 1977 by making a frenetic version of the Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction.” Casale told The Associated Press on Wednesday that without Myers, Devo never would have reached the heights it did, calling him the best drummer he has ever played with. “We were mostly in basements and garages writing songs. It was Alan that brought everything to life,” Casale said. “That

was the catalyst where everything clicked.” He called Myers “the human metronome.” “People watching him thought we were using a drum machine,” Casale said. “Nobody had ever drummed like that.” Casale described meeting and playing with Myers for the first time in 1976. After their first session ended, Casale — who had been facing away from Myers — turned around to see the drummer standing on one leg with his eyes closed, prac-

ticing the meditative Chinese martial art of Tai Chi. “I thought, ‘Man, this guy really is Devo. He fits right in,’” Casale said, adding that Tai Chi was one of the drummer’s greatest passions. “Some bands would be doing drugs and drinking. Alan would find quiet places backstage and do a full session of Tai Chi.” Devo is short for devolution, the idea that man was devolving into its monkey state.

hygience causes a stink for ex-wife DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced for almost 15 years. In that time, my ex-husband has been selfemployed and works out of his home. He rarely leaves his house, and I think he suffers from depression. At a school honors event for our daughter for which most of the attendees dressed for the occasion, he arrived in dirty shorts and a T-shirt. I sat next to him to be polite, until I realized he also smelled awful. When I tried to excuse myself saying I needed a “better seat for my camera,” he got up, too! It was an unpleasant two hours. I felt bad for the others in our vicinity. I have tried to suggest that he may suffer from depression in the past, but he denies it. Is there anything I can say that won’t be resented (with him possibly showing up even more disheveled the next time just out of spite)? — UNPLEASANT SITUATION, GETTYSBURG, PA. DEAR UNPLEASANT SITUATION: While you may have ended your marriage 15 years ago, it doesn’t appear you have truly divorced yourself from your ex. Rather than having pussy-footed around the reason you wanted to change your seat, you should have told him it was because he smelled like a goat and showed he lacked enough respect for those around him and his daughter to shower and put on clean clothes. He may — or may not — suffer from depression. Because he denies it, there is no way you can force him into treatment. You are no longer responsible for his attire or his welfare. Because you’re concerned that he may show up looking more disheveled “out of spite,” you have my permission to distance yourself if it happens. And if your daughter is embarrassed by his attire, she has every right to talk to her father about it. DEAR ABBY: I’m a small-business owner. I have an educational supply and toy store. Business has been pretty good, even through the hard times. My problem is my customers’ children are about to put me out of business. They are out of control. They climb on shelving, open products, tear things apart and throw scream-

DEAR HAD IT: If possible, designate a small area of your store where kids can go to play while their parents are shopping. Also, post a sign at the cash register that reads: “Customers Will Be Charged for Broken or Damaged Items.” The problem you are experiencing is one that is shared by many other retailers. If any of them are reading this column, I’d love to know how they resolved this problem. DEAR ABBY: Since my mother passed away, I feel awkward when my anniversary parents’ comes up. I don’t want to ignore this important date for my father (we are very close), but I don’t feel saying “Happy Anniversary” is appropriate either. What do you suggest? — REMEMBERING IN ORANGE COUNTY, CALIF. DEAR REMEMBERING: Your father already knows what the date means. Pick up the phone, say, “Dad, I’m thinking about you and I love you,” and if he lives close by, invite him to dinner if he doesn’t have plans.

In this Oct. 8, 2011 file photo Prince Michael Jackson appears on stage at the Michael Forever the Tribute Concert, at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. An attorney for Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, says the singer’s eldest son, Prince, will testify in a Los Angeles courtroom in the negligent hiring case against AEG Live LLC on Wednesday. Prince, 16, is a plaintiff in the case against concert promoter AEG Live.

amenities. After his father’s acquittal of child molestation charges, Prince described living in the Middle East, Ireland and Las Vegas. Prince is the first Jackson family member to testify during the trial, now in its ninth week. On Thursday his cousins, TJ and Taj Jackson, who are Tito Jackson’s sons, will take the witness stand. Prince Jackson, his sister Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson and brother Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson are plaintiffs in the case against AEG, which their grandmother and primary caretaker filed in August 2010. Another image showed Michael Jackson playing piano with his son while Prince was still a toddler. Plaintiffs’ attorney Brian Panish asked Prince whether he was interested in pursuing a career in music. “I can never play an instrument and I definitely cannot sing,” Prince said to laughter from the jury. He said he wanted to study film or business when he goes to college. His testimony also included details that AEG’s lawyers will likely point to later in the case to bolster their contention that Jackson was secretive about using propofol as a sleep aid. Prince said none of the household staff were allowed upstairs at the mansion, and the singer kept his bedroom locked while receiving treatments from Murray. During cross-examination, Putnam played a clip from a deposition of Prince in which the teen said he discovered the bedroom was locked when he and his siblings were playing hide-andseek and couldn’t get inside. Prince also said his father gave him and his sister Paris a stack of $100 bills on a few occasions to give to Murray. He said his father told him that Murray wouldn’t take the money from him, and the doctor wouldn’t take the full amount from the children. The teenager said his understanding was that the money was meant to tide Murray over until he got paid by AEG Live. He never saw or knew how Murray was treating his doctor. “I was 12. To my understanding he was supposed to make sure my dad stayed healthy,” Prince testified.

Riding the Rails in Ohio oller coaster and theme park enthusiasts are lucky to live in Ohio which ranks third in the country for theme park visits. Ohio boasts two of the top 15 amusement parks in the country, Cedar Point and King’s Island. Each park drew over 3.2 million visitors in 2012, and major roller coasters are part of their appeal. If you’ve been considering a trip to these two roller coaster hotspots, here are a few highlights to entice you. Cedar Point. Cedar Point holds the title of “The Roller Coaster Capital of the World,” and with 16 coasters, it’s an appropriate designation. Cedar Point bills its newest coaster, the Gatekeeper, as the world’s longest, fastest, and tallest winged coaster. Reaching speeds of 67 mph, this monster greets visitors at the front gate with a 164-foot drop and two keyhole passes. After riding the Gatekeeper, consider the Millennium Force. An elevator cable system pulls riders up 310 feet and then drops them at speeds of up to 92 mph. Not to be outdone is the Top Thrill Dragster. It launches riders from zero to 120 mph in a mere three seconds and then shoots them up a 420-foot vertical tower. Rounding out this trifecta of bad boys is one of the earliest mega coasters, the Magnum XL-200, which still thrills with a first hill of

Fans of wooden roller coasters will find plenty to keep them occupied at Cedar Point. The Gemini, a wooden racing coaster, reaches speeds of 60 mph. Also watch out for the Mean Streak.With 1.7 million feet of pine to provide the struc-

ture, the Mean Streak takes riders on a rip-roarin’ trip at 65 mph. Don’t forget an old favorite, the Blue Streak. This classic from 1964 still offers riders plenty of air time, bumps and jostles. A trip to Cedar Point wouldn’t be complete without a ride on the Raptor, a suspended coaster that’s sit-

uated on the midway. Its riders’ feet hang free as they endure six inversions at 57 mph. From there move to the Mantis, one of the world’s great standing coasters. Riders stand for a 145-foot climb that dives into a 119-foot loop while traveling at 60 mph. If roller coasters don’t appeal to you, there’s still plenty to enjoy at Cedar Point. 72 rides dot the property, from wild to mild. The park also boasts live entertainment, midway games, a kids’ area, a water park, a campground, several resort hotels, and a beach. Find out everything you need to know for your trip at www.cedarpoint.com . King’s Island. Closer to home is King’s Island, the midwest’s largest amusement and water park, boasting 14 roller coasters and more than 80 rides. Two headlining coasters, the Diamondback and the Beast, dominate the park’s major attractions. New in 2008, the Diamondback towers as the tallest and fastest coaster in the park, and it treats riders to a 215-foot drop and speeds of up to 80 mph. It features six drops and concludes with a spectacular splashdown ending. The open stadium-style seats provide riders with superb views of the park as they ride. Not to be overshadowed is the Beast. This classic wooden coaster still holds the world record as the

longest wooden coaster with 7,400 feet of track and more than four minutes of ride time. With two lift hills and a 540-degree helix tunnel for the grand finale, the Beast is consistently voted as one of the world’s greatest coasters by coaster enthusiasts worldwide. These two giants aren’t the only ones lurking at King’s Island. In addition to three kiddie coasters, wooden coaster fans will enjoy the Racer, a racingstyle coaster that’s been at King’s Island since the beginning. After a turn on the Racer, head over to Invertigo, a steel coaster where riders face each other as they move through three inversions forward and again backward. Thrill seekers also won’t want to miss Firehawk where riders flip through five inversions all while facing the ground as if flying. The Flight of Fear coaster features a catapult launch taking riders from zero to 54 mph in just four seconds. Keeping riders in the dark is part of the fun since the entire ride is enclosed. The Vortex, another steel coaster favorite, flips riders upside down six times and was the first coaster in the world to do so.

: Help! We find it almost impossible to finish a restaurant meal when our 18-month-old twins are along, which is always. We give them toys to keep them busy, and they do well for about 30 minutes after which chaos breaks loose. They begin screaming and throwing things and make it very difficult for us to finish our meal much less enjoy conversation with other adults who may be with us. It’s very embarrassing and I generally end up leaving the restaurant with them. How can I be more proactive about this problem?

Personal finance education should ideally begin when children are in elementary school. This is a good time to establish an allowance, say for doing chores around the house. One strategy is to get kids to regularly save some of their allowance, and donate another portion to church or a charity of the child’s choosing. When a child is between 5 and 10 years old, it’s an ideal time to set them up with a child savings account. That can help children begin to learn the value of saving and compounding interest — even if the small return might not generate much excitement for young kids. Many banks offer savings and checking accounts tailored for young children as well as teens. Capital One

It’s important to hold teenagers accountable for their financial choices. This could take several forms, like requiring them to pay for their own monthly mobile phone subscription or the online account on their video game console. Money management lessons can be found by giving teenagers a clothing allowance and letting them buy their school clothes on their own. And even if they elect not to spend wisely and end up with, say, one pair of fancy jeans and not enough socks or underwear, that’s OK. “You want them to go ahead and make small mistakes with not very much money while the stakes are still fairly low,” Seaman says. “If it is something absolutely critical, you could make the decision to bail them out.” In this spirit, parents might also consider giving teens an ATM card to access an account with a limited balance and no overdraft protection. Another option is a prepaid Visa or MasterCard with a set limit.

4. MANAGE EARLY CREDIT USE

Managing credit card debt and spending can be a major problem for many borrowers, but especially young cardholders. Kids under 18 are not allowed to open a credit card account on their own, though use of prepaid cards in high school can help establish good spending habits. Parents with kids going away to college may want to add the student to their card to cover books or emergency expenses. But a shared card account also can help parents keep tabs on their kids’ spending and payment habits. “It will give you a road map for how to transition them from those constraints to the more open access they 3. CONSIDER A TEEN will have when they’re RETIREMENT adults and making their ACCOUNT own money,” Seaman says.

Your kids will likely have to rely on their savings and investments to help cover expenses when they retire. That may seem like a distant concern, but youth is an advantage when it comes to maximizing returns in a retirement account. And, having them invest some of their earnings for their golden years now will help make it a habit for years to come.

5. MAKE CAR

BUYING A LESSON How to turn buying a car for your teen into a money management lesson? Rather than handing them the keys to a car on their 16th birthday, get teens involved doing all the homework that goes into a car purchase. Ask them to compare different models according to features like price, projected maintenance costs and mileage. And have them call insurers to find out how much coverage will cost. Once they have a better idea of the real costs involved, use that to set their expectations. 6. GET TEENS INVOLVED IN HOUSEHOLD FINANCES Another way to get teens on track to manage their finances as adults is to give them a closer view of household financial decisions. Walk them through the monthly bills and let them see how much is spent to keep the heat and the cable TV on, as well as funding retirement accounts and debt payments. To help frame the money management conversation, the National Endowment for Financial Education has a booklet that can be downloaded for free at www.hsfpp.org . And for teens nearing graduation or headed for college, check out www.cashcourse.org/prep . The site, also run by NEFE, explains a bevy of financial issues, from budgeting and financial planning, to setting financial goals and planning for retirement.

JOHN ROSEMOND Columnist the more wound up they get, and the more difficult it is to get them into their beds and off to sleep. If you’re going out to a restaurant with other adults, do yourselves, your friends, and other patrons a huge courtesy and hire a sitter. Speaking from experience, I can tell you that no one appreciates paying for a meal that is disrupted by unruly children of any age. Your friends may smile through the chaos and reassure you that everything is okay and they understand, but they’re just trying to put on a game face and be as polite as possible. All of this leads me to another issue, which is the apparent reluctance of today’s parents to obtain babysitters. This is something that people of my generation and older frequently comment on (to one another) and scratch our heads over. My conversations with the “our kids have gone everywhere with us since they were born” crowd lead me to conclude that this rather inconvenient practice is driven by one part fear (generally unfounded), one part the need, on the part of the mother, to live up to the new “Good Mommy” standard, and one part lack of responsible teens who are willing to babysit. The latter is simple to deal with: if you can’t find a sitter, then don’t go out. I’ll deal with parts one and two in an upcoming column. Stay tuned!

:Let me pose a thought problem to you: You have an adult friend who is generally very personable but has a habit of becoming disruptive in crowded public spaces. He invariably begins a loud argument that rapidly deteriorates into screaming and throwing whatever objects are handy. Would you invite him to join you for dinner in a restaurant? No, you would not. You would not want to be associated with this individual’s public outbursts, and you would not want to subject other patrons to them either. That is nothing more than commonsense, and the very same commonsense applies to this situation with your 18-month-old twins. It’s one thing to invite other adults to your home for dinner. In that event, feed your twins before your guests arrive, then do your best to keep them occupied while you entertain. Better yet, have your guests arrive after you’ve fed, bathed, and put your twins to bed. If only for the parents’ sake, this age child should be in bed by seven o’clock anyway, and the Family psychologist John commonsense of that policy Rosemond answers parents’ is doubled with twins.

1. COVER THE BASICS EARLY

2. GIVE TEENS SOME FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES

Once a teen lands a job — an allowance won’t do — open a Roth IRA, or individual retirement account. A Roth IRA allows accountholders to contribute a portion of their paycheck after taxes. That means that when it comes to time to withdraw the funds, they can do so tax-free. Seaman recommends teens set aside a minimum of 15 percent of their paycheck toward their retirement account. And that parents use the opportunity to teach their kids about the stock market, risk and return, and how as teens they have a long timeline ahead that will allow them to recover from setbacks.

Your teenage kids may be old enough to get a part-time job and start taking college prep exams, but do they know how to manage their money? Parents can get their teens started on the road to financial literacy by taking advantage of ways to teach them concepts like making a budget, balancing a checking account, using credit wisely or saving for retirement. That’s because parents can have the biggest influence on their children’s behavior when it comes to personal finance, says Patricia Seaman, senior director of the National Endowment for Financial Education, a nonprofit focused on financial literacy. “Even if you don’t feel like you know enough or feel you were raised in a money savvy environment, you still can overcome that and give your kids a good foundation,” Seaman says. Here are six ways to instill your teens with money management skills for college and beyond:

Financial’s Kids Savings Account currently offers a 0.75 percent variable annual percentage yield with no fees or minimum balance. And Wells Fargo’s Teen Checking account lets parents set daily limits on debit card purchases and ATM withdrawals.

Just as with Cedar Point, non-coaster riders will still have plenty to do at King’s Island. Live entertainment, midway games, a water park, and a wide variety of other rides will keep the entire family busy. The kids’ area at King’s Island has been voted as the world’s best by Amusement Today magazine 12 years in a row. Go to www.visitkingsisland.com for more information. With all this excitement packed into two amusement parks, no wonder Ohio ranks third in the U.S.A for theme park visits.Take time this summer to ride a few of the rails in the Buckeye State and see for yourself why Ohio is a hot spot for amusement park fun.

Rory McIlroy, of Northern Ireland, checks his shot out of a bunker on the 15th hole during the first round of the U.S. Open golf tournament at Merion Golf Club, Friday, June 14, in Ardmore, Pa.

BY BERNIE MCGUIRE Associated Press MAYNOOTH, Ireland (AP) — Rory McIlroy shot a 2-over-par 74 in the first round of Irish Open on Thursday and says he feels “a bit lost” in what has been a difficult year. The world’s No. 2ranked golfer again struggled with his driver and managed just two birdies on a wet, overcast day at the Carton House course on the outskirts of Dublin. McIlroy is seven shot behind clubhouse leader and playing partner Shane Lowry. Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn, who also played with Lowry and McIlroy and who won the event in 2006 when it was last played at Carton House, shared second at 4 under with England’s Paul Casey and Australia’s Andrew Dodt. “At the moment, no aspects of my game are strong and I’m just feeling a bit lost at the moment,” he said. “It feels good on See Lost/Page 8

The 1923 baseball season — just five games Numerous errors against the Piqua team but not alone The High school track team candidates had their first workout of the season this afternoon when Coach Mote, and a number of athletes went to Roosevelt park in company with rakes, hoes, shovels, and other excavating implements which they used for the purpose of digging jumping pits, and placing the track in condition for running. The regular training and drills for track and baseball will be started Monday afternoon after school hours. Coach Mote will have charge of the practice of both squads, and will go on directing the training of both outfits until he finds a suitable assistant, then he will in all probability, take care of the track team while his assistant will be given charge of the baseball squad. The members of the track team will be headed by Captain Garbry. This lad has been in training for several

months and is in ‘trim’ at the present time to run against the best High School men in the country. He has shown already this season that he is ready to win the mile event in all of the local meets, as he made the mile in 4:45 at a meet in Illinois. Scott will also run the half mile and 440 yard runs on this year’s team.” The 1923 baseball season included just five games, starting with Fletcher. “Piqua High school came through with flying colors in the first game of the season. The victims of the first victory were the base ballers of the Fletcher High school. The final score was 16 to 0.” “Piqua High school turned in its second consecutive victory of the season when it journeyed to Overlook Park and trimmed the West Milton high school team.

The Tipp team also had its quota of mistakes during the nine innings.” “Troy High school took the count at the hands of the strong Piqua high school baseball team yesterday afternoon at Roosevelt park by the very close score of 12 to 11. Although the score, in itself, does not indicate a very good contest, it was the best of the year that Piqua high has put up, and was the most exciting.” “The Piqua High school baseball team lost the last game of the season Saturday afternoon at Troy when Troy High handed them the short end of a 7 to 6 score. The Piqua team played a game they should have won, but all of the breaks went against Piqua. The Piqua team was trailing in the ninth inning by one run and

with the tying run on third base, Lehmkuhl hit to right field, but the right fielder made a throw to first that got there just after the batter had reached the base, but the umpire could not see it that way and called Elmer out for the final putout of the game. The game was not what could be called a real game of baseball as there was considerable wrangling in the contest. Troy must be given credit for having a good team, and coming through with the game in fine shape after being defeated by only two days previous by Piqua. The Troy team played ‘heads up’ baseball all through, and took advantage of the breaks that went against Piqua High.” The first of three track meets was held on May 5. “With almost perfect weather for a track meet Piqua High romped away with a clean cut victory over all entries in the See History/Page 8

It’s been way too long since I felt this good, and hopefully the next one won’t be too far away.” Truex’s previous only Sprint Cup Series win had been at Dover in 2007, and it took him more than six years to get back to Victory Lane.

Chicago Blackhawks center Andrew Shaw, second from left, celebrates with his teammates after scoring the winning goal during the third overtime period of Game 1 in their NHL Stanley Cup Final hockey series against the Boston Bruins on June 13 in Chicago. The Blackhawks won 4-3.

BOSTON (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks scored goals 17 seconds apart in the final minutes to capture their second Stanley Cup in four seasons. The improbable rally led to a wild on-ice celebration as Chicago outlasted the Boston Bruins

in six games. Bryan Bickell scored with 1:16 remaining to tie it and Dave Bolland scored with 59 seconds left to win it. The Hawks withstood the Bruins’ final push and surged over the boards, throwing their sticks and gloves across the ice. Chicago captain Jonathan Toews, who scored earlier in the game, was sum-

moned to center ice by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman to accept one of the more hallowed trophies in sports. “I still can’t believe that finish,” Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford said. “Oh my God, we never quit.” The sold-out TD Garden was almost empty — except for a few hundred fans in red Blackhawks jerseys who filtered down

to the front rows — when the Chicago players passed the 35-pound Cup around the ice. Patrick Kane, who scored the winning goal in 2010 to lift the Blackhawks to their first championship since 1961, was voted the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as playoffs MVP.

Miami County Annual Track and Field Meet Saturday afternoon at the Fair Grounds. A strong wind prevailed throughout the afternoon and made it impossible for runners of the dashes and high jump to make any kind of good marks. The distance runners did, however, make some wonderful records. Piqua made a total of 47 points for the day while Troy ran second with a total of 30. The high point man for the day was the captain of the Piqua team. He, Scott Garbry, did some wonderful running and scored first place in three events, the 880 yard run, the 440 yard dash and the 220 yard dash. He tied the South Western Ohio records in two of the events, as he ran the 880 yard run in the exceedingly fast time of two minutes, seven and one fifth seconds.

He scored in the 220 yard dash by running the distance in twenty four seconds flat. Scott scored a total of 16 points in the meet. The grade school events of the morning were won by the Troy schools with a total of 37 points, with Piqua running second with 26 points.” Piqua hosted the Western Ohio Track Meet the following week. “Over 1000 ardent followers of sports who shivered through a wintery May were repaid for their ‘misery’ Saturday afternoon when the Piqua high school track and field team for the second time, won the second annual Western Ohio scholastic meet with 41 points. Troy high won second with 31 points, Greenville finished third with 30 while Wa-

pakoneta finished fourth. No records were smashed but Garbry, star Piqua distance runner, would undoubtedly have hung up a mark in the runs had it not been for a heavy track due to rains, which fell, almost unceasingly, making a heavy track. Lunch was served on the grounds by Y.W.C.A. girls, who were undaunted by the cold day.” For Piqua, Garbry won the 880 and 440 yard runs, Purucker won the pole vault, Morrow the discus, and Garbry, Purucker, Edge and Harbaugh captured first place in 880 yard relay. The state meet was held at Miami University. “The Piqua High School track and field team completed its schedule Saturday afternoon by making a big bid for high honors at the First Annual High School track and field meet of Southwestern Ohio High schools. Piqua was entered in the class A division since the school is in that class and scored 12 points for fourth position. The only school which headed Piqua in this meet was East High of Cincinnati, which took high honors by scoring 45 ½ points. Garbry was the big noise of the entire meet. He broke two records. He went wild on the mile run taking it in the exceedingly fast time of 4:44 4/5 which is just exactly 6 seconds faster than any other High school man has ever run the mile in a Southwestern Ohio meet. Then with a rub down and a little rest, Garbry proceeded to smash the record for the half mile event by running it in 2:05 2/5. Garbry, in other words, was the talk of the meet, and words of praise were heard all over the big athletic park of Miami University for this wonderful runner of Piqua High.”

created the team from scratch with his NAPA sponsorship in 2006 when he formed his own team. Truex now heads to Saturday night’s race at Kentucky Speedway to see if the Sonoma win was the breakthrough that will lead to more victories. It happened last year with MWR teammate Clint Bowyer, who picked up his first win at Sonoma and went on to grab a careerhigh three wins while finishing second in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. In 2011, Brad Keselowski won his first race at Kansas and went on to win three more and make the Chase. Keselowski followed it by winning the 2012 NASCAR championship. “I definitely think we are capable of (wins), we are capable of running up front,” Truex said. “All those times we were so close, and just didn’t finish the deal. I think it’s something we can do consistently.”

I tell everybody how good you are, and then you go win at the hardest place on the circuit.’ “ What followed was a Monday night victory party attended by Truex’s parents, friends and his MWR crew, which had never before won a race. The last time the NAPA car was in Victory Lane was in 2003 when Michael Waltrip drove it for DEI. So the current crew members at MWR had never made it to Victory Lane. Waltrip essentially

SPORTS 9 A glimpse into the best and worst draft choices PIQUA DAILY CALL • WWW.DAILYCALL.COM

ATLANTA HAWKS Best Value: Doc Rivers, No. 31 pick, 1983. Plenty of teams passed on Rivers, who was part of a draft that also included talented point guards Derek Harper and Darrell Walker. Rivers played eight solid seasons in Atlanta. Worst Value: DerMarr Johnson, No. 6, 2000. The second Cincinnati product to go in the top six that year behind No. 1 pick Kenyon Martin, Johnson played two seasons with Atlanta before breaking his neck in a car crash. After missing the entire 2002-03 season, he was able to play again in the NBA — but his career with the Hawks was over. BOSTON CELTICS Best Value: Larry Bird, No. 6, 1978. Red Auerbach drafted Bird in the first round even though it would be another year before the Indiana State star became a professional. Worth the wait, to say the least. Worst Value: Chauncey Billups, No. 3, 1997. The most tragic pick for the Celtics was Len Bias, whose death shortly after the 1986 draft transcended the game, but in terms of mismanagement, Boston’s handling of the third pick in ‘97 probably still stings a bit. Billups was a perfectly reasonable pick, but he had not even played a full season before the Celtics traded the future Finals MVP for Kenny Anderson. BROOKLYN NETS Best Value: Buck Williams, No. 3, 1981. Williams is still the franchise’s career scoring leader thanks to an impressive eight-year run in New Jersey. Worst Value: Dennis Hopson, No. 3, 1987. The No. 3 pick wasn’t as kind a few years later. Hopson played only five seasons in the NBA, three with the Nets. CHARLOTTE BOBCATS Best Value: Emeka Okafor, No. 2, 2004. This young franchise has never picked No. 1 overall. Okafor gave Charlotte five solid seasons before being traded to New Orleans. Worst Value: Adam Morrison, No. 3, 2006. Morrison averaged 11.8 points as a rookie, but a knee injury cost him the whole 2007-08 season and he was traded in 2009. CHICAGO BULLS Best Value: Michael Jordan, No. 3, 1984. No surprise here — and we’ll have plenty more on the ‘84 draft a little later. Worst Value: Jay Williams, No. 2, 2002. The Bulls were already running in place a bit after drafting Marcus Fizer in

DETROIT PISTONS Best Value: Joe Dumars, No. 18, 1985. In a draft heavy on big men, the Pistons were able to land Dumars late in the first round, and he would team up with Isiah Thomas to form a championship-winning backcourt. In 1986, the Pistons came up with another steal when they took Dennis Rodman in the second round, but Dumars played with Detroit his entire career and is now the team’s president. Worst Value: Darko Milicic, No. 2, 2003. Milicic was the man picked between LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. The Pistons won the NBA title in 2004 — but this choice

Paul Pierce. Ouch. LOS ANGELES LAKERS Best Value: Kobe Bryant, No. 13, 1996. Charlotte drafted Bryant but immediately announced that his rights would be traded. He ended up in Los Angeles in exchange for Vlade Divac. Details have always been sketchy, but years later, Bill Branch — a scout for the Hornets in ‘96 — told the Winston-Salem Journal that the deal was already in place, and the Lakers had told Charlotte whom to pick. If you don’t want to count Bryant as a Los Angeles pick, Magic Johnson at No. 1 in 1979 worked out OK, too. Worst Value: Kenny Carr, No. 6, 1977. The Lakers haven’t had too many significant whiffs. Carr averaged 11.6 points per game in his NBA career but spent just over two seasons with the Lakers. He was taken one spot ahead of Bernard King. MEMPHIS ZLIES

LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS Best Value: Blake Griffin, No. 1, 2009. Let’s be honest: There’s not a lot of competition for this honor. Griffin missed the whole 2009-10 season because of a broken kneecap, but he’s now one of several reasons this downtrodden franchise is finally enjoying some buzz. Danny Manning put up good numbers for the Clippers after they took him with the top pick in 1988, but the team remained largely irrelevant. Worst Value: Michael Olowokandi, No. 1, 1998. Olowokandi was picked ahead of Mike Bibby, Antawn Jamison, Vince Carter, Dirk Nowitzki and

GRIZ-

Best Value: Pau Gasol, No. 3, 2001. Atlanta took the 7-footer from Spain, but the Hawks were picking for the Grizzlies as part of a trade. Gasol’s impact was immediate, and he may have been the best player taken in that draft. Worst Value: Steve Francis, No. 2, 1999. Francis made little attempt to hide his displeasure when picked by the Grizzlies, who played in Vancouver back then. He was traded to Houston before his rookie season, and the team would spend only two more seasons in Canada before moving to Memphis. In 2009, the Grizzlies took Hasheem Thabeet at No. 2. He

In honor of Thursday night’s NBA draft, The Associated Press takes a look at the best and worst alltime picks for each of the league’s franchises. The starting point for this exercise was 1966, when the territorial pick system went away and the draft began to look more like it does today. We’re judging picks not on how sensible they seemed at the time, but on how much they ended up being worth to the selecting team — taking into account where each pick was in the draft and who else was available. When it came to trades, we tried to use common sense, crediting whichever team was actually making the selection.

New rules aim to rid schools of junk foods

THE WICHITA EAGLE, MIKE HUTMACHER, FILE/AP PHOTO

In this May 3, 2006, file photo, a student purchases a brown sugar Pop-Tart from a vending machine in the hallway outside the school cafeteria, in Wichita, Kan. High-calorie sports drinks and candy bars will be removed from school vending machines and cafeteria lines as soon as next year, replaced with diet drinks, granola bars and other healthier items the Agriculture Department said Thursday. BY MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — High-calorie sports drinks and candy bars will be removed from school vending machines and cafeteria lines as soon as next year, replaced with diet drinks, granola bars and other healthier items. The Agriculture Department said Thursday that for the first time it will make sure that all foods sold in the nation’s 100,000 schools are healthier by expanding fat, calorie, sugar and sodium limits to almost everything sold during the school day. That includes snacks sold around the school and foods on the “a la carte” line in cafeterias, which never have been regulated before. The new rules, proposed in February and made final this week, also would allow states to regulate student bake sales. The rules, required under a child nutrition law passed by Congress in 2010, are part of the government’s effort to combat childhood obesity. The rules have the potential to transform what many children eat at school. While some schools already

have made improvements in their lunch menus and vending machine choices, others still are selling high-fat, high-calorie foods. Standards put into place at the beginning of the 2012 school year already regulate the nutritional content of free and low-cost school breakfasts and lunches that are subsidized by the federal government. However most lunchrooms also have the “a la carte” lines that sell other foods — often greasy foods like mozzarella sticks and nachos. Under the rules, those lines could offer healthier pizzas, low-fat hamburgers, fruit cups or yogurt, among other foods that meet the standards. One of the biggest changes under the rules will be a nearban on high-calorie sports drinks, which many beverage companies added to school vending machines to replace high-calorie sodas that they pulled in response to criticism from the public health community. The rule would only allow sales in high schools of sodas and sports drinks that contain 60 calories or less in a 12-ounce serving, banning the highestcalorie versions of those beverages. Many companies already have developed low-calorie

sports drinks — Gatorade’s G2, for example — and many diet teas and diet sodas are also available for sale. Elementary and middle schools could sell only water, carbonated water, 100 percent fruit or vegetable juice, and low fat and fat-free milk, including nonfat flavored milks. First lady Michelle Obama, an advocate for healthy eating and efforts to reduce childhood obesity, pointed out that many working parents don’t have control over what their kids eat when they’re not at home. “That’s why as a mom myself, I am so excited that schools will now be offering healthier choices to students and reinforcing the work we do at home to help our kids stay healthy,” Mrs. Obama said in a statement. At a congressional hearing, a school nutritionist said Thursday that schools have had difficulty adjusting to the 2012 changes, and the new “a la carte” standards could also be a hardship. Sandra Ford, president of the School Nutrition Association and director of food and nutrition services for a school district in Bradenton, Fla., said in prepared testimony that the healthier foods have been ex-

pensive and participation has declined since the standards went into effect. She also predicted that her school district could lose $975,000 a year under the new “a la carte” guidelines because they would have to eliminate many of the foods they currently sell. “The new meal pattern requirements have significantly increased the expense of preparing school meals, at a time when food costs were already on the rise,” she said. Ford called on the USDA to permanently do away with the limits on grains and proteins, saying they hampered her school district’s ability to serve sandwiches and salads with chicken on top that had proved popular with students. The Government Accountability Office said it visited eight districts around the country and found that in most districts students were having trouble adjusting to some of the new foods, leading to increased food waste and decreased participation in the school lunch program. However, the agency said in a report that most students spoke positively about eating healthier foods and predicted they will get used to the changes over time.

Lawmakers near vote on state budget BY JULIE CARR SMYTH AP Statehouse Correspondent COLUMBUS (AP) — After months of wrangling, state lawmakers are preparing to grant final approval to the massive policy document that lays out Ohio’s spending priorities for the next two years. The $62 billion state operating budget is scheduled for floor votes in both the Ohio House and Ohio Sen-

ate on Thursday, with Republican Gov. John Kasich facing a Sunday deadline to sign it. The voluminous bill delivers $2.7 billion in tax reductions over three years to individuals and small businesses, revises Ohio’s school-funding formula and changes health care programs. Other provisions affect policies on abortion, exotic animals, e-schools and campaign finances. Absent from the legislation are Kasich’s proposals

to increase taxes on oil and gas drillers and to expand Medicaid, the state-federal health insurance program, under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The energy tax hike, which Kasich intended to fund income-tax reductions, faced strong and vocal opposition from the well-funded oil and gas industry, which is aggressively exploring newly accessible natural gas and oil stores in shale layers under eastern Ohio.

Meanwhile, many of Kasich’s fellow Republicans, who control both chambers of the Legislature, opposed Obama’s health law overhaul and the associated Medicaid expansion as an expansion of government. Kasich told reporters on Wednesday those issues haven’t gone away. “This is not over. The severance tax fight is not over. The Medicaid expansion fight is not over,” he said. “We’re going to stay on this thing until we get it.”

Kasich has the ability to veto line items out of the budget, but no power to add things. After vigorous debate, Ohio’s GOP lawmakers did deliver Kasich a political victory ahead of next year’s re-election bid by including income-tax cuts in the bill. The package reduces the statewide income tax rate gradually over three years, beginning with an 8.5 percent tax cut on income earned in 2013 and moving to a 10 percent tax reduction by 2015.

One principle of the new rules is not just to cut down on unhealthy foods but to increase the number of healthier foods sold. The standards encourage more whole grains, low-fat dairy, fruits, vegetables and lean proteins. “It’s not enough for it to be low in problem nutrients, it also has to provide positive nutritional benefits,” says Margo Wootan, a nutrition lobbyist for the Center for Science in the Public Interest who has lobbied for the new rules. “There has to be some food in the food.” The new rules are the latest in a long list of changes designed to make foods served in schools more healthful and accessible. Nutritional guidelines for the subsidized lunches were revised last year and put in place last fall. The 2010 child nutrition law also provided more money for schools to serve free and reduced-cost lunches and required more meals to be served to hungry kids. Last year’s rules making main lunch fare more nutritious faced criticism from some conservatives, including some Republicans in Congress, who said the government shouldn’t be telling kids what to eat. Mindful of that backlash, the Agriculture Department left one of the more controversial parts of the rule, the regulation of in-school fundraisers like bake sales, up to the states. The new guidelines also would not apply to after-school concessions at school games or theater events, goodies brought from home for classroom celebrations, or anything students bring for their own personal consumption. The USDA so far has shown a willingness to work with schools to resolve complaints that some new requirements are hard to meet. Last year, for example, the government temporarily relaxed some limits on meats and grains in subsidized lunches after school nutritionists said they weren’t working.

BY MARCY GORDON Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. mortgage rates have suddenly jumped from near-record lows and are adding thousands of dollars to the cost of buying a home. The average rate on the 30-year fixed loan soared this week to 4.46 percent, according to a report Thursday from mortgage buyer Freddie Mac. (NYSE:FRE) That’s the highest average in two years and a full point more than a month ago. The surge in mortgage rates follows the Federal Reserve’s signal that it could slow its bond purchases later this year. A pullback by the Fed would likely send long-term interest rates even higher. In the short run, the spike in mortgage rates might be causing more people to consider buying a home soon. Rates are still low by historical standards, and would-be buyers would want to lock them in before they rise further. But eventually, more expensive home loans could price some people out and slow the housing market’s momentum, which has helped drive the U.S. economy over the past year. “People are getting off the fence a little bit more or choosing to buy now instead of choosing to buy three months from now,� said Anthony Geraci, a Cleveland real estate broker-owner who says he’s seeing more sales activity lately in his market. Mortgage rates are rising because they tend to track the yield on the 10-year Treasury note, a benchmark for most long-term interest rates. The 10year yield began rising from near-record lows in May after speculation grew that the Fed might be closer to reducing its bond purchases. In early May, the average rate on a 30-year mortgage was 3.35 percent, just above the record low of 3.31 percent. But rates began to surge and stocks plunged after Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke made more explicit comments last week about the Fed’s plans. He said the Fed would likely scale back its bond buying later this year and end it next year if the economy continued to strengthen. The rate on 30-year loan soared from 3.93 percent last week to 4.46 percent this week the biggest oneweek jump in 26 years. The effect on buyers’ wallets in just the past two months is striking. A buyer who locked in a 3.35 percent rate in early May on a $200,000 mortgage would pay $881 a month, according to Bankrate.com. The same mortgage at a 4.46 percent rate would run $1,008 a month. The difference: $127 more a month, or $45,720 over the lifetime of the loan. Those figures don’t include taxes, insurance or initial down payments. Jed Kolko, chief economist at Trulia, a real estate data analysis firm, thinks many would-be buyers will start to take note. “Some buyers will reconsider jumping into the market; others will speed up their (home) purchases before rates go higher,� Kolko said. The rate hike comes at a critical time. Low mortgage 1rates have helped fuel a housing recovery that has kept the economy growing modestly despite higher taxes and steep federal spending cuts. In May, completed sales of previously occupied homes surpassed the 5 million mark for the first time in 3 years. And those sales could rise further in June because the number of people who signed contracts to buy homes rose last month to the highest level since December 2006. There’s generally a oneto two-month lag between a signed contract and a completed sale. Greater demand, along with a tight supply of homes for sale, has driven up home prices. It’s also led to more home construction, which has created more jobs and contributed to economic growth. Lower rates have also inspired a refinancing boom over the past two years. Many homeowners have locked in rates below 4 percent. That has lowered their monthly payments, leaving them with more cash to spend elsewhere and fuel more economic growth. The average rate on a 15-year fixed mortgage, a popular refinancing instrument, soared this week to 3.50 percent its highest point since August 2011 from 3.04 percent last week. A report this week suggested that the economy might not be as strong as some had thought. The government cut its growth estimate for the JanuaryMarch quarter to an annual rate of just 1.8 percent much lower than the 2.4 percent rate it estimated a month ago. A key reason for the downgrade was that consumers spent less than previously thought. Less spending has led some economists to predict that growth will stay weak through the summer and fall short of the Fed’s more optimistic forecast of 2.3 percent to 2.6 percent growth for all of 2013. The downgrade for economic growth has cast some doubt on the likelihood that the Fed will reduce its stimulus later this year. Several Fed voting members have stressed in recent days that Bernanke’s comments made clear that any pullback in bond purchases would hinge on the economy’s performance, not a calendar date. Those reassurances and solid, if not spectacular, economic data have helped boost stocks in recent days and reverse a jump in long-term interest rates. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell Thursday to 2.47 percent, down from its two-year high of 2.66 percent on Monday. Geraci says he doesn’t think higher mortgage rates will hurt a housing market in which there aren’t nearly enough available homes in many areas. “So buyers that find a nice home, no matter what the rates are, are going to move on it,� Geraci said. “If there’s enough supply, people might sit and wait a little bit and see if the rates come down.� Rising rates motivated Alex Backus to act two weeks ago and sign a contract on a $365,000 threebedroom house in the Seattle suburb of Edmonds, Wash. Backus, 30, had searched listings for two months before signing the contract. He locked in a 30-year loan at a fixed rate of 4.125 percent. “Seeing that interest rates were starting to come back up, it seemed like now was the time to really start to get serious about buying a home,� said Backus, an aerospace engineer.
