Johnston Farm project moving forward

Local businesses to consolidate

PIQUA — The Johnston Farm Friends Council says it is pleased with the response from Piqua and the surrounding area to the planned upgrade and renovation of the Historic Indian and Canal Museum. As visitation and requests for use of the museum has increased, it became apparent that more space was needed. By converting the outdoor patio space on the east side of the museum to a new room, this need will be met. The patio space will be complete with its own climate controls to allow year-round use. There will be space set aside for use by caterers who may be serving visitors. “The real highlight of the project will be the installation of state-of-theaudio visual art equipment that will allow our staff the ability to use this space for classroom or programming. This is something that we have never had,” said Site Manager Andy Hite. Since this space overlooks the Miami and Erie Canal, the current canal era exhibits, as well as additional items, will be relocated to the new space. “What better way to share information about Ohio’s canals than in a modern space overlooking the canal itself?” said Jim Oda, president of the Johnston Farm Friends Council. The renovated area also will be able to be

Somewhere in Time and New-2-U to be housed under one roof in August BY WILL E SANDERS Staff Writer PIQUA — Two downtown antique and vintage dealers are combining their businesses under one roof in a business consolidation that hopes to prove that two heads — or in this case, shops — are better than one. New-2-U, 411 N. Main St., and Somewhere in Time, 509 N. Main St., will soon be combining into a new business with a new name, Tattered Treasures, said New-2-U co-owner Ruth Freeman, who runs the business with her husband, Paul. The Freemans will be moving their business into the 509 N. Main St. location with Somewhere in

Time in all probability by the end of the August, the Freemans said, at which point in time the new business name will go into effect. About 15 years ago the Freemans ran a similar antique and collectibles shop in Piqua, but later moved to South Carolina, but when they moved back to the area opened New-2-U in 2010. Now the Freemans have decided to move into the Somewhere in Time store, which opened in January, and is co-owned by Angie Koons, Mia Amburn and Tisha WolfeSchwenzer. Somewhere in Time specializes in vintage and vintage-inspired or reworked decor, among other items. The Freemans said the

more flexibility with our schedules.” The Freemans said it’s been nice getting to know the ownership of Somewhere in Time and both parties agreed on naming the new business venture Tattered Treasures, which will be located at the 509 N. Main St. business loca-

The water quality test came back safe. The tower was back in service as of July 25.

tion. Until the move, New2-U will continue their sale and their hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., by appointment or by chance. “This move will give us more flexibility,” Ruth said. “That’s the big thing for us.”

Local stage performer follows her Muse BY BELINDA M. PASCHAL Staff Writer PIQUA — From student to alumna, Kimberly Gepfrey has a long history with Dayton’s Muse Machine. A 2011 graduate of Miami East High School, Gepfrey, 20, got involved with the Dayton theater program as a spectator her freshman year, when the program came to her school. Muse Machine is a nationally recognized arts education organization that serves some 70,000 students and their teachers in 10 southwestern Ohio counties. But Gepfrey’s love of theater, especially musical theater, goes back farther than high school. “I’ve been involved in musicals since I was in sixth grade,” she said. “When I was younger, I really just did it with a friend who wanted me to join. My first musical was ‘Seussical the Musical’ and I fell in love with it. I was just in the ensemble but it was like a big family.” Gepfrey took a break from performing in eighth grade, but

after seeing a production of “Beauty and the Beast,” she couldn’t stay away from the stage. “I was so mad that I wasn’t up there, so in my freshman year, I got back into the groove of it with ‘Grease’,” she said. She admits joining Muse Machine “on a whim” and it was no easy feat for a busy teenager. “It was crazy because I was doing ‘Into the Woods’ (with Muse), plus I was a cheerleader and I was doing the musical ‘Me and My Girl’ at Miami East at the same time,” said Gepfrey, who will be a junior majoring in music education at Ohio Northern University in the fall. Gepfrey’s latest undertaking with Muse is “All You Need is Love,” a summer concert featuring the music of The Beatles. The production will bring together nearly 200 of the most talented young singers, dancers and musicians across the Miami Valley for an evening of classics including “Hey Jude,” “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “Penny Lane” and “Come Together.” Just two days into rehearsals, Gepfrey says one of her favorite

numbers is “Let it Be.” She also is a fan of the dance numbers, having studied for 13 years at the Tammy Bellamy School of Dance in Troy. It was to her advantage that Gepfrey had a passing familiarity with the Fab Four’s music via her father. “My dad is kind of obsessed with that kind of music,” she said. At first, I was like ‘Do I even know any of their songs?’ then I got on Spotify (a commercial music streaming service) and started singing along with them and realized I knew them, just not by name.” Growing from a strong foundation of pop and rock, Muse Machine’s musical interpretations will venture into such territories as bluegrass, baroque and even Gregorian chant. “All You Need is Love” will be performed at 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8, at the Victoria Theatre, 138 N. Main St., Dayton. Tickets are available through Center Stage at the box office, by calling (937) 228-3630 or online at Adult tickets range from $20$52. Senior, student and chil-

Pope urges young to treasure elderly RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Pope Francis praised the elderly during the Catholic Church’s festival of youth Friday, saying grandparents are critical for passing on wisdom and religious heritage and are a “treasure to be preserved and strengthened.” Francis has made a point of not just focusing on the next generation of Catholics during World Youth Day, but on the older generation as well. It’s part of his longstanding work caring for the elderly in Argentina, the crucial role his own grandmother played in his spiritual development and the gentle deference he shows his predecessor, Benedict XVI. Speaking from the balcony of the residence of

Rio’s archbishop, Francis noted that Friday is celebrated as Grandparent’s Day in much of the world and that young people should take the occasion to honor and thank their grandparents for the wisdom they share. “How important grandparents are for family life, for passing on the human and religious heritage which is so essential for each and every society!” he said. Francis spoke about the important “bridge” between young and old in his brief remarks to journalists en route to Rio, saying young Catholics have the strength to move the church forward while older Catholics have the “wisdom of life” to share that shouldn’t be discarded. “This relationship and

The display for this year's edition of the fair celebrates the 50th anniversary of the All-Ohio Youth Choir and pays tribute to its founder, Glenville D. Thomas. The traditional butter cow and calf share a larger refrigerated display with a butter bust of Davis and 60 choir members. It was made public by the American Dairy Association on Tuesday, a day before the fair's opening ceremony. The sculptures include about 2,000 pounds of butter and took 543 hours to complete. This year's All-Ohio State Fair Youth Choir has 200 members and will perform several times every day of the fair, which runs through Aug. 4.

Ohio governments under fiscal watch DAYTON (AP) — A newspaper analysis shows that 24 Ohio governments and six school districts are under state supervision to try to help them avoid financial ruin. Some of the governments are under “fiscal emergency.” That’s a declaration created by a 1978 Ohio law enacted when Cleveland defaulted on $15.5 million in loans and teetered on the brink of financial ruin. The Dayton Daily News reports that two villages in northern Ohio have defaulted on a combined $500,000 in debt. The largest government in fiscal emergency is the city of Mansfield with more than 39,000 residents. Many of Ohio’s struggling communities are small villages. Under fiscal emergency, a state-appointed commission forces the government to come up with a plan to right its finances.

Hotdogs, doughnuts and bears, oh my! COLUMBUS (AP) — Bears don’t eat light. Records obtained by The Associated Press show that two bears temporarily housed at an Ohio facility chowed down on dog food, hot dogs and doughnuts. The building holds wild creatures confiscated or surrendered under Ohio's exotic animal law, which was strengthened following the release of dozens of animals including lions and tigers by their suicidal owner in 2011. Authorities fearing for public safety killed the animals in a headline-capturing saga. Receipts obtained through a public records request show Ohio officials have spent more than $1,000 on food and supplies for the facility’s boarders since the end of May. Items included a $225 ball for the bears and five kiddie pools for alligators. The facility has held at least five alligators and two bears.

Why won’t the media cover Huma Abedin? ationalized health care was one of the first programs enacted by the Bolsheviks after they seized power in 1917. Nearly a century later, the U.S. enacted “Obamacare.” Who won the ColdWar again?This is one of the questions I work over in my new book. Can we realistically claim liberty and free markets triumphed over collectivism when today there is only a thin Senate line trying to fend off Obamacare’s totalitarian intrusions into citizens’ lives? We see perhaps a dozen or so patriots led by conservative ace Sen. Republican Mike Lee of Utah, gallantly mustering forces to defund further enforcement of this government behemoth aborning. How can we maintain that the republic endured when a centralized super-state has taken its place? So,once more,who really won the ColdWar?The question is better framed when we realize that the battleground where the FreeWorld met Marx was also psychological.Consciously or not, we struggled against an insidious Marxist ideology that was always, at root, an assault on our nation’s character. The most recent manifestation of victory over the American character shows through the Anthony Weiner-Huma Abedin scandal. This scandal is a paradoxical double whammy of both exposure and cover-up. Everyone knows (too much) about the exposure part:Anthony Weiner, candidate for mayor of New York City, turns out to be a recidivist pervert.The fatuous conversation that has followed this “news” has turned on the decision of Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, to step forward to try to salvage her husband’s bid for public office.TheWall Street Journal’s response to Abedin’s decision was typical: “Watching the elegant HumaAbedin stand next to her manTuesday as he explained his latest sexually charged online exchanges was painful for a normal human being to watch.” The media want to know why the “elegant Huma” — Hillary Clinton’s longtime aide and former deputy chief of staff — would do such an inelegant thing. Was this couple’s therapy writ large? Was it for their child? Was it ... love? True, the barbs of Huma’s ambition — as naked as her husband’s dirty pics — have broken through the gauzy chatter. But cut off from context, they, too, end up perpetuating what is, in fact, the great Huma Abedin cover-up. It is not enough to analyze Huma Abedin as a “political wife.” Abedin is also a veritable Muslim Brotherhood princess.As such, the ideological implications of her actions — plus her long and privileged access to US policy-making through Hillary Clinton — must be considered, particularly in the context of national security. But talk about paradoxes. In an era when the most minute and lurid descriptions of her husband’s anatomical and sexual details are common talk, Huma Abedin’s familial and professional connections to the world of jihad are unspeakable. In a nutshell — quoting former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy writing at National Review this week — Huma Abedin “worked for many years at a journal that promotes Islamic supremacist ideology that was founded by a top al-Qaida financier, Abdullah Omar Naseef.” That would be for at least seven years (1996-2003), by the way, during which Abedin also worked for Hillary Clinton. Let this sink in for just a moment.The journal that Huma worked for — which promotes Islamic supremacism and was founded by al-Qaida financer Naseef, who also headed the Muslim World League, a leading Muslim Brotherhood organization — is called the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs. It was edited first by Huma’s father, Syed Abedin, and now by her mother, Saleha Abedin. Saleha is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood. Mother Abedin also directs an organization (the International Islamic Committee forWoman and Child) that comes under the umbrella of the Union for Good, another U.S.-designated terrorist organization. Given these alarming professional and family associations, it is hard to imagine how Huma Abedin ever received the security clearance necessary to work closely with the secretary of state. But she did, and from her powerful post, she undoubtedly exerted influence over U.S. policy-making. (In his National Review piece, McCarthy lists specific actions that bespeak a shift in U.S. foreign policy to favor the Muslim Brotherhood.) Isn’t the Abedin-Clinton national security story at least as newsworthy as Weiner’s private parts? At this point, only McCarthy’s National Review piece reprises these well-documented facts. In other words, it is not only CNN and the New York Times that draw blanks for their readers. Most “conservative” outlets, including Fox News, the New York Post, The Blaze, and Rush Limbaugh, are ignoring this story, too. If the Abedin-Muslim Brotherhood story rings any bells, it is probably because of Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. Last summer, Bachmann, along with four other House Republicans, raised the issue of HumaAbedin among other examples of possible Muslim Brotherhood penetration of the federal policy-making chain.They asked inspectors general at five departments, including the State Department, to investigate their concerns, but nothing happened — nothing, that is, except that Bachmann was crucified, by Democrats and Republicans alike, for asking urgently important questions about national security. This made the entire subject, already taboo, positively radioactive — with Huma Abedin becoming the poster victim of this supposed “McCarthyism” redux. End of story. Never mind facts. Never mind also that in his day, Sen. Joseph McCarthy was asking urgently important questions about national security, too. But don’t worry.We “won” the Cold War. Obamacare, here we come. At this rate, we’ll declare “victory” in the so-called war on terror,and,before you know it,become a leading outpost of the caliphate.

To the Editor: Oh what a night! Thanks to Commissioner Bill Vogt, the Piqua Parks & Recreation Department and the many sponsors for bringing the musical group Van-Dells to Piqua on July 20. The music of the 50s and 60s was so uplifting and exhilarating. The trio was full of talent and personality. Their six-piece band was amazing and loaded with talent. The young man who came out as “Elvis” was unbelievable. He looked just like the young Elvis of the past and really wowed the audience. I was surprised there were not more people in attendance. People complain about nothing to do and then pass up an opportunity for a really great night of entertainment. The $5 admission fee was minimal to what it should have cost for such a fun night. Thanks again Mr. Vogt, the Piqua Parks & Recreation Department and event sponsors French Oil, Buckeye Insurance Group, Unity Bank, CDM Smith, Paul Sherry dealership, Apex Aluminum, Crayex, Piqua Concrete and the Piqua Community Foundation. Your time and money were well spent. — Sincerely, Edna Stiefel Piqua

Boyfriend’s man-of-mystery act mysterious DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year, and it has been wonderful. He’s amazing and sweet. We went to the movies for our anniversary and about 50 minutes into it, he turned to me, said he didn’t like the movie and he wanted to leave. I was enjoying it, but I didn’t want to force him to watch it, so we left. When we were out of the theater I asked him why he didn’t like it, and he told me he didn’t want to discuss it. I pressured him for an answer a little bit, but he told me to forget it. This has been bugging me. Should I leave it alone? I understand it’s not that big a deal, but he has done this a few times before — not explaining things when I ask. I am confused about why he won’t tell me. — PUZZLED IN THE MULTIPLEX DEAR PUZZLED: There may have been something in the movie that made your boyfriend uncomfortable. Perhaps it triggered a memory of something in his past that he didn’t want to be reminded of. Or, he may have been bored by the film and so centered on himself that he didn’t care that you were enjoying it. Your boyfriend may be wonderful and amazing, but he also appears to be a poor communicator. This would be a dealbreaker with some women. Only he can tell you why he’s this way, but if he hasn’t opened up in the year you have been seeing each other, it isn’t likely to change. DEAR ABBY: My husband has erectile dysfunction for which he takes medication. He gets it from a friend. I have discovered he takes the medication with him when he travels. He swears he isn’t cheating on me and that he’s faithful. Should I believe him? — SUSPICIOUS IN ARIZONA DEAR SUSPICIOUS: I confess, my knee-jerk reaction after reading your letter was, “Uh-oh!” Then I picked up the phone and called Bruce Landres, M.D., in Los Angeles. His first words were, “That’s an interesting question.” He then went on to say that if

Nurse details anesthetic treatments for Jackson BY ANTHONY MCCARTNEY AP Entertainment Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Jackson had a high tolerance for certain drugs and wasn’t always forthcoming with his medical history, a nurse anesthetist who treated the singer testified Thursday. Witness David Fournier told jurors he had worked with Jackson for a decade until the relationship ended in 2003, when Fournier refused to participate in a medical procedure. Jackson was acting “goofy” and was slow to respond to standard questions before a scheduled cosmetic surgery that was canceled after Fournier refused to administer an anesthetic, he said. The incident came a few months after Fournier said he had to help Jackson breath while undergoing another procedure and later determined that Jackson had not disclosed a new medical condition. “He wasn’t honest with me,” Fournier said. At the time, Jackson had an implant in his abdomen to block the effects of Demerol and other opiate drugs.

your husband has prostate problems in addition to his erectile dysfunction, you should believe him, because last October the FDA approved a low dose of one particular E.D. drug for the treatment of benign hypertrophy prostate (BPH). (This low dose is not enough to assist in infidelity.) You should discuss this further with your husband because it would be much safer for him to get this kind of medication from his physician, who knows his medical history, since E.D. drugs can sometimes cause serious side effects. P.S. Another thought: It’s also possible your husband watches adult videos when he travels and needs “the pill” for his own entertainment. BY JONATHAN You’ll never know unless LANDRUM JR. you ask him. Associated Press

Fournier testified that he had given the singer a relatively large dose of a powerful anesthetic and needed to know how Jackson was going to react. Fournier testified as a defense witness in a negligence case filed by Jackson’s mother against AEG Live LLC, the promoter of Jackson’s comeback shows. Katherine Jackson claims the concert promoter failed to properly investigate the doctor who was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter for giving Jackson an overdose of the anesthetic propofol as a sleep aid in 2009. AEG denies it is liable for Jackson’s death. Its lawyers have said Jackson hid his prescription drug use from nearly everyone. Fournier said his incomplete medical records show he administered propofol to Jackson at least 14 times between 2000 and 2003. He estimated he gave the singer the drug numerous other times over the years for a variety of cosmetic and dental procedures. He noted in his records that Jackson had a high tolerance for certain drugs, which Fournier said could be attributed to a variety of factors, including genetics.

Lebron serves as music curator for ‘NBA 2K14’ game video game. James said in a statement that he is honored to be the first cover athlete to choose songs for the soundtrack. He follows his friend and Grammy-winning rapper Jay-Z, who was the executive producer of the last year’s installment that sold more than 4.5 million copies. “2K is letting me take control of some important elements in NBA 2K14, including this year’s soundtrack,” James said. “I love that I’m the first NBA 2K cover athlete to choose the soundtrack.”

ATLANTA (AP) — LeBron James is taking some of his talents during the offseason to a bestselling basketball video game franchise as a music curator. 2K Sports announced Friday that the two-time NBA champion of the Miami Heat selected 20 songs for the soundtrack of the upcoming “NBA 2K14.” The league’s fourMVP is also the cover time DEAR STILL athlete of the popular MOURNING: I’m sorry for your loss.

DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law passed away five months ago. I was given the option of taking a winter coat of hers, which I gladly accepted. When would it be appropriate to wear it around my husband’s family? — STILL MOURNING IN WISCONSIN

During cross-examination, Fournier said Jackson never requested any specific drugs, including propofol, during procedures or asked to be sedated for longer than was necessary. He said the singer didn’t exhibit any drug-seeking behavior or signs that he was doctor-shopping. Fournier said he knew that Jackson had received an above-average number of anesthetic treatments over his lifetime, and many were related to procedures needed after Jackson was badly burned in a shoot for a Pepsi commercial in 1984. Fournier said it was not common to administer an anesthetic during cosmetic procedures, but the ones done on Jackson were complex and involved dozens of injections. Some of the procedures were near Jackson’s eye and sedation was necessary to keep him still, Fournier said. Fournier also said he never had any indication that the singer was using propofol as a treatment for insomnia. Jackson’s physician Conrad Murray had been giving the singer nightly doses of propofol as Jackson prepared for his ill-fated “This Is It” shows.

Some of the songs featured on the game’s soundtrack are Drake’s “Started From The Bottom,” Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight,” Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” featuring Pharrell Williams and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Can’t Hold Us,” with Ray Dalton. Other music acts featured are Jay-Z, Coldplay, Robin Thicke, The Black Keys, Eminem, Fly Union, Gorillaz, Imagine Dragons, Jada Kiss, John Legend, Kanye West, Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, Nas and Puff Daddy. James is the first solo cover athlete to cover the game in two years since Michael Jordan. The game is expected to go on sale Oct. 1.

Had West led anything but a trump, Seres would have made the slam easily after taking a heart finesse and then ruffing two hearts and a diamond in dummy to produce 12 tricks. But after West led a trump, Seres had to find a different route to 12 tricks. He took the trump lead in dummy and successfully finessed the queen of hearts. He then cashed the ace of spades

and led a diamond, West taking the ace and returning a second trump. Seres won in dummy, ruffed a spade, led a diamond to the king, ruffed another spade, cashed the ace of hearts and ruffed a heart in dummy to produce this position:

Seres now ruffed the seven of spades with the club ace, and West was helpless. If he discarded a heart, South would lead the heart nine and take the last two tricks whether or not West ruffed. West would find himself in the same hopeless position if he discarded a diamond instead of a heart. And finally, if West underruffed South’s ace, dummy would score the last two tricks.

NEW YORK (AP) — Hedge funds were once the rock stars of the financial industry. The smartest people worked for them. The wealthiest gave them their money. They were an easy path to fortune. But if that get-richquick narrative was an exaggeration before the financial crisis, it’s even less true since. The hedge fund industry’s performance has been spotty in recent years; its public image, bruised. SAC Capital Advisors became the latest high-flyer brought low when the Justice Department on Thursday accused it of allowing insider trading and making hundreds of millions of dollars illegally. To critics, hedge funds are secretive, risky, loosely regulated playgrounds for the super wealthy. And while the industry keeps expanding, its performance does not. This year could be the fifth in a row that hedge funds underperform the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index, according to Hedge Fund Research, or HFR, which

analyzes the industry. That’s an unwelcome reversal: For the 20 years from 1990 to 2009, hedge fund returns beat or tied the S&P 500 15 times. “Everyone says, ‘Oh a hedge fund,’ and acts like that’s some kind of mark of excellence,” said Heath Abshure, president of the North American Securities Administrators Association, a group of state securities regulators. “A hedge fund is just an unregistered investment company.” Hedge funds operate by convincing wealthy people to invest with them. They profit by trying to find opportunities that no one else has picked up on, wagering on everything from the price of copper to whether a company will cut its dividend. Some made fortunes predicting the downfall of the U.S. housing market. The funds try to earn big returns for investors with a variety of strategies, typically including bets for and against the direction of a market. That is meant to provide a hedge, allowing the firm to survive in good economies and bad, and to beat the overall stock market. Their birth is generally traced to 1949, but it wasn’t until more recently that the industry really took off. In 1990, there were about 600 hedge funds managing $39 billion in assets. Now there are 10,000 firms managing $2.4 trillion, according to HFR.

Franklin eyes a Phelpsian-like workload at worlds BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Eight is a special number in swimming, thanks to Michael Phelps. Now, Missy Franklin will try to pull off a Phelpsian-like workload. Just a year removed from her starring role at the London Olympics, the 18-year-old Franklin plans to swim eight events at the world championships in Barcelona. Franklin qualified for the 100- and 200-meter freestyle, as well as the 50, 100 and 200 backstroke. Also look for her on the U.S. team in all three women’s relays. The teenager concedes that her schedule is “definitely a lot,” but says she’s looking forward to competing in some of her favorite races. No swimmer — male or female — has ever won eight gold medals at a world championship. Phelps, of course, won a record eight events at the Beijing Olympics.

Delle Donne to miss All-Star game with concussion UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Elena Delle Donne will miss the WNBA All-Star game on Saturday because of a concussion. The No. 2 pick in the draft was injured in the Chicago Sky’s loss to Washington on Wednesday when she was going for a loose ball with a minute left in the third quarter. Delle Donne is the first rookie to lead the All-Star voting and will be replaced on the Eastern Conference roster by Atlanta’s Erika de Souza. The former Delaware star is averaging 18.2 points, third-best in the WNBA. Delle Donne joins top draft pick Brittney Griner on the sideline for the league’s showcase game this weekend at Mohegan Sun Arena. Griner is still recovering from a sprained left knee. She was replaced on the roster by Tina Thompson. Had Delle Donne and Griner both played, it would have been the first time in league history that two rookies from the same class started an AllStar game.

Swiss League approves drinks breaks in heat wave BERN, Switzerland (AP) — Expecting a heat wave this weekend, the Swiss Football League says matches can be stopped twice in each half for drink breaks to protect players’ health. The league says it agreed with referees that play can be “briefly interrupted” around the 15th and 30th minutes of each half as players should be able to “hydrate themselves correctly.” Temperatures of at least 33 Celsius (91 Fahrenheit) are forecast on Sunday when Sion plays St. Gallen and Lucerne meets Zurich from 1.45 p.m. local time. Hotter conditions are expected inside stadiums because of warming winds from nearby mountains.

Yankees angered Order more rehab for Alex Rodriguez BY RONALD BLUM Associated press NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball is investigating him, the Yankees are angry with him and Alex Rodriguez is miffed. A-Rod’s strained relationship with his team hit another low on Thursday when he kept pushing to be activated from the disabled list and New York kept pushing back. He wound up having a lawyer join in when the sides discussed how to rehabilitate his slightly injured leg. Already a target of Major League Baseball’s drug investigation, the third baseman angered the Yankees when he obtained a second medical opinion on his strained left quadriceps this week without informing the team in writing, a step required by the sport’s collective bargaining agreement. The Yankees intend to discipline him, most likely with a fine. “Do you trust the Yankees?” Rodriguez was asked Thursday during an interview on WFAN radio. A-Rod’s answer was telling. “Um. You know, I’d rather not get into that,” he responded. “I’m just frustrated that I’m not on the field tomorrow.” Sidelined since hip surgery in January, Rodriguez issued a statement saying he wanted to be activated for Friday’s homestand opener against Tampa Bay. But that wasn’t in the Yankees plans. “We agreed that a protocol would be followed that is necessary when you return somebody from a quad injury,” general manager Brian Cashman said during a conference call with the team’s beat writers. “That protocol will include further treatment, which he’ll continue tomorrow with some light conditioning, and then expand to more functional work from the 27th through the 31st. Our hope, as well as Alex’s hope, without any setbacks or new complaints, that

would put him in a situation to have either a simulated game or a rehab game on Aug. 1.” A-Rod went public with his disenchantment. “Obviously I’m very, very disappointed,” he said. “I know I can help my team. Obviously, I’m frustrated but I agreed to this five-day plan, and on we go.” He repeatedly said he told the Yankees he was ready to return. “Tomorrow night would be the perfect night to come back and get in the lineup,” he said. Whether he gets back on a big league field any time soon or ever plays for the Yankees again remains to be seen. MLB has been investigating Rodriguez as part of its probe of the closed Bio-

PEDs from 2001-03 while with Texas but maintained he has not used them since. The Yankees intend to discipline A-Rod for seeking a second medical opinion without their permission, a person familiar with the team’s deliberations said. The exact penalty had not been determined, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because no statements were authorized. A fine appeared to be the most likely option. Meantime, Rodriguez’s return from hip surgery has created more drama than most players experience in their entire careers. Seemingly days away from rejoining the Yankees, Rodriguez injured a leg last

RODRIGUEZ detect an injury. Gross, who never examined Rodriguez personally, was reprimanded this year by New Jersey’s board of medical examiners over steroid prescriptions, fined $30,000 and ordered to pay $10,000 in costs. Rodriguez was re-examined Thursday by Dr. Daniel Murphy, the Yankees’ orthopedic surgeon in Tampa, Fla., who con-

firmed Ahmad’s diagnosis. Cashman said Murphy dethere was termined “clearly some improvement.” Yankees President Randy Levine and Cashman got on a 15-minute conference call with Tim Lentych, the head athletic trainer at the player development complex in Tampa; Rodriguez; and Jordan Siev, co-head of the U.S. commercial litigation

group at Reed Smith, a law firm used by A-Rod pal Jay-Z. “Just want to make sure that everything is documented properly,” Rodriguez said. Rodriguez’s statement infuriated Yankees management, which already had told him it determines his return schedule. “I think the Yanks and I crossed signals,” the threetime AL MVP said in the issued by statement spokesman Ron Berkowitz. “I don’t want any more mix-ups. I’m excited and ready to play and help this team win a championship. I feel great and I’m ready and want to be in the lineup Friday night. Enough doctors, let’s play.” Rodriguez, who turns 38 Saturday, earns $153,005 each day during the season, and while he remains on the disabled list much of the money is covered by insurance. Rodriguez has hit .200 (8 for 40) with two homers and eight RBIs in 13 minor league games. About a week before he began the injury rehab assignment on July 2, Rodriguez tweeted that the surgeon who operated on his hip “gave me the best news the green light to play games again!” Cashman memorably responded: “Alex should just shut the ... up.” Rodriguez said he’d like to rehab with the major league team, as captain Derek Jeter is doing as he comes back from a quadriceps injury. But the Yankees seem to regard A-Rod as toxic. “Obviously, I’m an employee,” he said. “I have to follow my bosses.”


Despite recent woes, Cleveland Indians are still in chase BY JIM INGRAHAM Associated press So on a six-game trip to Minnesota and Seattle, two of the bleakest competitive outposts in the major leagues, a trip in which most good teams would have gone 6-0 or 5-1 or, at worst, 4-2 — the Indians went 2-4. Granted, it’s just a sixgame segment in a 162-game season. But it came after what should have been an invigorating four-day all-star break, and it came after the Indians went into the break red hot, having won four in a row and six of eight. Their first six games after the break were all set up for the Indians to continue to make some hay.Instead,they made some hey, as in “Hey, what’s going on here?” The Indians, incredibly, went 2-4 on the trip in which their starting pitchers had a combined 1.48 ERA and they out-scored their opponents 25-14. Is that even possible? Apparently. And it’s not as though they were facing a bunch of Randy

Johnsons and Greg Madduxes on the trip. The four losses came in games in which the opposition’s starting pitchers were Mike Pelfrey, Kevin Correia, Aaron Harang, and Erasmo Ramirez, who have a combined record of 17-22 and a 4.88 ERA. Given all that, how could the Indians lose four of those six games? Start with the astonishing nine errors they made in the six games. Actually, they did mix one errorless game in there,so they had nine errors in five games. That’s a pace which, if kept up over a 162game season, would produce 292 errors. I’m no infield coach, but I don’t think that’s very good. Lonnie Chisenhall had four errors in four games on the trip. In 1990, Cal Ripken made three errors in 161 games. That’s not meant to compare Chisenhall to Ripken. It’s meant to compare four errors to three errors. The good news is that despite laying two gigantic eggs in the upper Midwest and

the Pacific Northwest,the Indians are still only three games behind the first place Tigers. This thing is still doable, but it’s good to keep in mind that in the Indians we’re talking about a team that lost 94 games last year, and is trying to reach the playoffs this year. They spent big in the offseason,but none of their high profile additions have contributed at or above the level expected of them. Nick Swisher, whether it’s that injured shoulder or wrestling with the weight of expectation that comes with a big contract, has been a shadow of his Yankee self. Michael Bourn IS at or above his career marks in batting average, on base percentage and slugging percentage, but after averaging 51 stolen bases per year in each of the last five years, he only has 13 this year, and he leads the league in getting caught stealing. A two-time Gold Glove winner in the National League,Bourn’s .988 fielding

percentage this year is his lowest in five years, and that figure doesn’t factor in the four-base error he could have been charged with when Miguel Cabrera’s fly ball landed in Bourn’s glove and then bounced over the wall. Mark Reynolds is hitting .113 with no homers and one RBI since June 29. Since May 30 he is hitting .166 with 2 homers and 6 RBIs. Drew Stubbs’ numbers are almost identical to those he posted the last four years, which convinced the Reds he was expendable, while Jason Giambi is a designated hitter hitting .192. Let’s not even get into Brett Myers. So it would be nice if the new guys started to contribute more, say along the lines of Scott Kazmir, Ryan Raburn and Mike Aviles. But having said all that, there’s still this: Offensively the Indians are averaging 4.74 runs scored per game. Only three teams in the league are better than that. One of them, unfortunately for the Indians, is Detroit, which leads the league with

an average of 5.0 runs per game. The Indians are third in the league in on base percentage — another good stat for the Tribe — but the Tigers lead the league in that category, too. TheTigers’ pitching is better than the Indians, whose pitchers have walked more batters and thrown more wild pitches than any team in the league. Errors? The Indians have made the fifth most, the Tigers the sixth fewest in the league. This all matters, because it’s becoming apparent that the Indians’ best chance to make the playoffs is to win the division, not one of the two wildcards. At the start of play Thursday, the Indians were 3 ½ games out of the second wildcard spot. With two months left in the season, however, the Indians still have time. But it’s time to start making hay, not hey.

SPORTS Lee, Tyson team to bring boxer’s stage show to TV 10


Saturday, July 27, 2013

BY BETH HARRIS Associated Press BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Mike Tyson is going back to pay TV, where his fights were some of the biggest moneymakers in boxing history. Only this time the punches he’s throwing are verbal. The former heavyweight champion is teaming with director Spike Lee to bring Tyson’s oneman stage show to HBO later this year. The program was filmed on Broadway, where “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth” ran last summer. Lee used 11 cameras to film the show that he described as part of Tyson’s legacy outside the ring. Tyson gives an unvarnished recounting of his life’s highs and lows, including his years in prison, biting Evander Holyfield’s ear, his marriages, being a tabloid target and his drug use. “Most human beings are not going to display the dark parts of themselves, the demons they have, to the world,” Lee told the Televi-

sion Critics Association on Thursday. “When you see this he’s out there on this stage naked sharing his experience, his ups and downs to the audience and it’s traumatic. It’s the most courageous thing I’ve ever seen in my life. I couldn’t do it and most people couldn’t do it.” Tyson found walking on stage to do a live show similar to going into the ring, with similar energy among the Broadway and fight crowds. “I can’t wait to get my hands on the guy like I can’t wait to get on stage. Just like in a fight, I wanted to kill everybody in the room, by my performance, of course,” he said, adding the biggest difference was “I don’t have to go to the hospital after I perform.” With Tyson waiting in the wings with his mic clipped on, Lee said, “We had to hold him back until he hears the bell ‘cause he’s ready to go.” Tyson’s wife, Kiki, wrote the script for the stage show, which toured the country earlier this year.Tyson said it reflects his life’s journey from Brooklyn street urchin to happily married father.

lieved to exist, which makes the find a rare piece of Masters Tournament history, The Augusta Chronicle reported. The program has a dark red cover and features an early version of the Augusta National logo, with the U.S. outline and a flagstick pinpoint-

ing Augusta. It contains information on the field, course and members of the private club. Augusta National Golf Club produced programs for its inaugural event in 1934 and for the second year. There is no record of other programs being produced until 1990, when

the club launched the Masters Journal as its preview magazine. The 1935 Masters was won by Gene Sarazen, who made his famous double eagle on the 15th hole in the final round to force a playoff with Craig Wood. Sarazen prevailed in a 36-hole playoff the

Bayern, Dortmund renew rivalry in Super Cup

1930 — Ken Ash of Cincinnati got his last major league victory by throwing one pitch. Ash came into relieve in the fifth inning and got Chicago’s Charlie Grimm to hit into a triple play. Ash was removed for a pinch hitter and the Reds beat the Cubs 6-5. 1946 — Rudy York of Boston hit two grand slams and drove in 10 runs as the Red Sox beat the St. Louis Browns 13-6. 1950 — Del Ennis of the Philadelphia Phillies drove in seven runs in the seventh and eighth innings of a 13-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Ennis doubled with the bases loaded in the seventh and hit a grand slam in the eighth. 1959 — New York lawyer William Shea announced the formation of the Continental League. New York, Houston, Toronto, Denver and Minneapolis-St. Paul were the five cities named and Branch Rickey was named league president. 1978 — Duane Kuiper of Cleveland tied a major league record by becoming the third player in the 20th century to hit two triples in a game, Both came with the bases loaded as the Indians beat the New York Yankees 17-5. 1984 — Montreal’s Pete Rose passed Ty Cobb for the most singles in a career with No. 3,053, against the Philadelphia Phillies. 1986 — Two 300-game winners faced each other as Don Sutton hurled six strong innings to outpitch Tom Seaver and give the California Angels a 3-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox. 1996 — The San Diego Padres pounded the Florida Marlins, 20-12. Wally Joyner led the way with five RBIs, while John Flaherty hit a grand slam. The Padres were the sixth club to score 20 runs in a game this season. The last time that happened was 1929. 2008 — Oakland reliever Brad Ziegler recorded six outs to set a major league record with 27 scoreless innings to begin his career. Ziegler broke the previous mark of 25 innings set by Philadelphia Phillies right-hander George McQuillan in 1907. 2009 — Washington’s Josh Willingham became the 13th player to hit two grand slams in a game, achieving the feat in the Nationals’ 14-6 win at Milwaukee. Willingham’s eight RBIs were the most in Nationals history and tied the franchise mark.


Munich’s captain Philipp Lahm lifts the trophy after winning the friendly soccer match against FC Barcelona in the Allianz Arena stadium in Munich, southern Germany, Wednesday. BY CIARAN FAHEY Associated press BERLIN (AP) — Borussia Dortmund will be looking to end Pep Guardiola’s winning start as Bayern Munich coach on Saturday when the teams renew their rivalry in the German Super Cup. The Champions League finalists meet at the Westfalenstadion in Dortmund for the first title of the season, one week before Bayern starts its German Cup defense and two before it begins defending its Bundesliga title. Guardiola has overseen wins in each of Bayern’s pre-season friendlies, including four-goal victories over Hamburger SV and Borussia Moenchengladbach, as well as a 2-0 win over Barcelona on Wednesday. “I’m happy up to now but we need a bit more time,” Guardiola said after 61 goals scored and three conceded in nine games. “Perhaps we need to improve a little up front.” The Spanish coach took over from Jupp Heynckes, who made way after leading Bayern to an unprecedented treble. “We’ll be well prepared and we’ll deliver a good game,” Guardiola said ahead of his first possible title as Bayern coach. “(But) it’s only the start of the season. There’s still a long, long road ahead.” The game will be shown live in 195

countries, reflecting the growing interest in German football since Bayern defeated Dortmund 2-1 at Wembley Stadium to become European champion in May. “This coming Saturday isn’t so important,” Bayern president Uli Hoeness told Bild. “The most important Saturday was in Wembley.” On paper at least, Guardiola’s side is even better than his predecessor’s with the offseason additions of Germany star Mario Goetze from Dortmund and highly rated midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Barcelona. Germany striker Mario Gomez departed for Italian side Fiorentina, but Croatia forward Mario Mandzukic established himself as the preferred forward last season, and Guardiola’s penchant for playing without an out-and-out goalscorer is well-known from his days at Barcelona, which he led to 14 out of a possible 19 titles. Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben and Thomas Mueller started up front against his former side on Wednesday, offering an indication of Guardiola’s likely preferred formation even before Goetze returns from injury. Goetze was due to bid farewell to his former side, but it was decided he would stay in Munich due to fan anger over his 37 million euro ($49 million) switch between the sides.

Indy 500 champ Tony Kanaan chasing history


2009 — Nick Swisher homered from both sides of the plate for the New York Yankees in an 11-4 win over Tampa Bay.

The car driven by Rubens Barrichello, of Brazil, and Doug Peterson takes a corner during practice the Brickyard Grand Prix Gran Am auto race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Thursday.

2011 — Major League Baseball acknowledged umpire Jerry Meals made the wrong call in Atlanta’s 4-3, 19th-inning win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates filed a formal complaint hours after the longest game in team history, and MLB executive vice president for baseball operations Joe Torre said it appeared Meals got the call wrong. 2011 — Ervin Santana pitched the first solo no-hitter for the Angels in nearly 27 years, striking out 10 and leading Los Angeles over Cleveland 3-1. Santana allowed two runners — an error on the leadoff batter that resulted in a first-inning run and a walk in the eighth. It was the Angels’ first complete-game no-hitter since Mike Witt’s perfect game on Sept. 30, 1984, against Texas. Mark Langston (7 innings) and Witt (2 innings) combined to hold Seattle hitless on April 11, 1990. 2011 — Seattle snapped its 17game losing streak as Ichiro Suzuki and rookie Dustin Ackley led a 17-hit attack in a 9-2 win over the New York Yankees. It was the longest skid in the major leagues since Kansas City lost 19 in 2005. 2011 — The Tampa Bay Rays broke one of baseball’s oldest records when they played their 705th consecutive game with a starting pitcher younger than 30 years old. The Rays lost to Oakland 13-4. Today’s birthdays: Ryan Flaherty 27; Max Scherzer 29; Alex Rodriguez 38.

Dortmund returned to pre-season training later than Bayern, and the team will be missing Goetze-replacement Henrikh Mkhitaryan and injured defender Lukasz Piszczek, while Jakub Blaszczykowski and offseason signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both doubtful as they recover from a stomach bug. “We’re not going to field a second string side,” Dortmund sports director Michael Zorc said. “We want the first title of the season and are looking forward to a great game.” Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp told the Bundesliga website there was no question of “revenge” for losing the Champions League final. “Nobody left the field after that game, saying ‘Next time, we’re going to show you!’ All we want to do on Saturday is play good football again and then, if possible, keep the cup in Dortmund,” Klopp said. Dortmund defender Mats Hummels also played down the notion of revenge. “A in over Bayern could be a good indicator how successful our season could be,” Hummels said. “We want to beat one of the, if not the, best team in the world. That’s our goal, and that’s our motivation.”

BY MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tony Kanaan is still getting accustomed to hearing his new title: Indianapolis 500 champion. After dealing with so much bad luck and so many years of frustration at Indianapolis, who could blame the Brazilian driver for mistaking those words now being applied to his name? “There’s nothing like winning at Indy, just ask Tony,” five-time Grand-Am champion Scott Pruett said during a conference call Tuesday. “What?” Kanaan said. “I said there’s nothing like winning at Indy, right Tony?” Pruett repeated. “No. I mean, look at where I’m at. Look at the job I got by winning Indy,” Kanaan said. What the elusive Indy victory did for Kanaan’s profile cannot be measured by money or trophies alone. It put him on center stage, giving him a chance to tell his story to the American public and show late-night television audiences the passion and humor that turned a foreign driver into one of Indianapolis’ fan favorites. It gave him an opportunity to honor a promise he made to his 6-year-old son, Leo, by handing him the Borg-Warner Trophy. And it helped

him get back to his favorite venue sooner than anyone expected, so he could chase a historic second win at Indy in a car nobody dreamed he would drive. On Thursday, for the first time, Kanaan hopped into a Grand-Am car and teamed up with Joey Hand to qualify 10th in Chip Ganassi’s No. 02 car. It’s Kanaan’s first trip back since winning the 500. “I got so lucky, my kid is on vacation with me this month from Brazil. This deal came up a week ago. Coincidentally he gets to be here,” Kanaan said. “He wasn’t here at the 500. He’s all excited. He’s never been to Indianapolis. It’s a great fit.” It could be a bit for the 38-year-old veteran, too. Though he’s started the last 12 Indy 500s, this will mark the first time he’s crossed the yard of bricks going from left to right and the first time he’s driven on the historic track’s much newer road course. And though he’s competed in sports cars previously, he’s never competed on Brickyard 400 weekend or in this version of racing — the Grand-Am Rolex Series. The affiliation with Ganassi, which Kanaan says opened up because of the wrist injury to Ryan Briscoe, also has raised questions about his future in IndyCar. Next week, Kanaan officially be-

comes a free agent when his deal with KV Racing Technology expires and some believe Kanaan could be headed to Ganassi’s shop where he was given a guest pass this week. “I’m in negotiations with KV right now. It’s not a secret that we need funding. We don’t have it yet at KV. Me and Jimmy (Vasser), we have an agreement until Aug. 1. I’m not going to go out there and shop around or offer myself. But after that, I need to look around,” Kanaan said. “I don’t want people to read into it because, really, there is nothing to it.” The good news is Kanaan will have plenty of support preparing for Friday night’s race. Besides having his family in town, Kanaan will get guidance from co-driver Hand and the two other Ganassi drivers, Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas. He could even turn to an old friend, Brazilian Rubens Barrichello, who is teaming with Doug Peterson for Doran Racing. Kanaan and Barrichello found out the same day they would be driving in this race at Indy after they competed together in the 2012 Indy 500. And if either wins, it would mark the first time any driver has won two major events in Indy history. Barrichello won the 2002 U.S. Grand Prix while driving in Formula One.


Saturday, July 27, 2013











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, July 28, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a lovely, playful day. Join others in fun activities. Romance can flourish, including love at first sight. (It's a poor day to spend money, except on food and fun.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a great day to entertain at home. Invite the gang over for good food and drinks. However, don't buy goodies for the home and family, because this is a poor day to shop. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Writers, actors and teachers can benefit today because they are in touch with their muse. Make the most of this talent through your communication with others. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Although you might boost your income or see ways to earn more money, this is actually a poor day for important financial decisions. It's also a poor day to shop. (But it's a fun day!) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel good about yourself today. A dawning awareness of your good fortune (especially compared to millions on this planet) makes you appreciate who you are. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a wonderful day to appreciate who you are and what you have. Hidden resources or behind-the-scenes assistance will enrich your life and make you feel fortunate. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A popular day for Libras! Get out and mingle. Enjoy schmoozing, especially in groups. New romance and certainly new friendships are possible. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) It's easy to make a great impression on others today, especially bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. Someone might ask for your creative input about something. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Travel for pleasure will delight you today. Enjoy meeting people from different cultures and other countries. In fact, romance with someone "different" could begin. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Gifts, goodies and favors from others will come your way today, so keep your pockets open. However, postpone important decisions about inheritances and shared property. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Relations with others, especially partners and close friends, will be warm and friendly today. In fact, you will enjoy dealing with members of the general public and practically everyone you meet. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Something will happen today that might improve your health. Or you might meet someone who can advise you on how to improve your health. Keep your eyes peeled. YOU BORN TODAY You're a romantic, dynamic individual. You have excellent social skills and a sense of how to deal with others. You appreciate the arts and will support them or be involved in some way. You're resourceful and organized because you know these tools help you get what you want. This year an important change will take place, perhaps something as significant as what happened around 2004. Birthdate of: Beatrix Potter, author; Terry Fox, inspirational hero; Gerard Manley Hopkins, poet.

Kidnap suspect Castro pleads guilty BY ANDREW WELSHHUGGINS Associated Press CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland man who imprisoned three women in his home, subjecting them to a decade of rapes and beatings, pleaded guilty Friday to 937 counts in a deal to avoid the death penalty. Ariel Castro told the judge he was addicted pornography, had a “sexual problem” and had been a sexual abuse victim himself long ago. In exchange for his plea, prosecutors recommended Castro be sentenced to life without parole plus 1,000 years. Castro, 53, said he understood that he would never get out of prison, saying he expected he was “going to get the book thrown at me.” He later added, “I knew that when I first spoke to the FBI agent when I first got arrested.” Castro, wearing glasses for the first time in court, was far more interactive than in previous court appearances when he mostly kept his head down and eyes closed. He answered the judge’s questions in a

clear, intelligible voice, saying he understood the proceedings and that he would never be released from prison. Castro, who was born in Puerto Rico, said he could read and understand English well but had trouble with comprehension. “My addiction to pornography and my sexual problem has really taken a toll on my mind.” He later said he had been a sexual abuse victim as a child, but the judge cut him off. Near the end of the 2 1/2-hour hearing, the judge accepted the pleas and declared Castro guilty. Sentencing was set for Thursday. The deal comes more than a month after a statement issued on behalf of the women said they were “hopeful for a just and prompt resolution” and had “great faith in the prosecutor’s office and the court.” Castro had been scheduled for trial Aug. 5 on a 977-count indictment, but 40 counts were dropped as part of the plea deal. The indictment included two counts of aggravated murder related to accusations that he punched and

starved one woman until she miscarried. The former school bus driver also was charged with hundreds of counts of kidnapping and rape, plus assault and other counts. The sticking point on a plea deal had been whether the prosecutor would rule out the death penalty. The three women disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004, when they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. Each said they had accepted a ride from Castro, who remained friends with the family of one of the women and even attended vigils over the years marking her disappearance. The women escaped Castro’s house May 6 when one of them kicked out part of a door and called to neighbors for help. Castro was arrested within hours and has remained behind bars. News that Amanda Berry, Gina Dejesus and Michelle Knight had been found alive electrified the Cleveland area, where two of them were household names after years of searches, publicity and vigils.

Ohio gun group raises $12k for Zimmerman BY REGINA GARCIA CANO Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio firearms group has raised more than $12,000 to be spent on guns or a security system for George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted of all charges in the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida. But the money could end up being used to pay for Zimmerman’s defense costs and fees. The $12,150.37 check that the group has written out to Zimmerman is the result of a fundraising effort that was launched because the group believes Zimmerman’s gun rights are being violated by the U.S. Department of Justice. The department has taken all the evidence from the trial, including the gun that killed Martin, as part of a civil rights investigation. Zimmerman was acquitted earlier this month of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in the 2012 shooting of Martin in a gated community

in Sanford, Fla., near Orlando. Zimmerman, 29, told police he shot Martin, 17, only after the black teenager physically attacked him; Martin’s family and supporters say Zimmerman, who identifies himself as Hispanic, racially profiled Martin as a potential criminal and wrongly followed him. The verdict sparked protests and calls for federal officials to charge Zimmerman with violating Martin’s civil rights. Zimmerman’s brother and one of his attorneys have said he receives threats and is concerned about his safety. The check sent to Zimmerman from the Buckeye Firearms Foundation is meant to be spent on guns, ammunition, protective gear or a security system, said Ken Hanson, the group’s legal chairman. “The Department of Justice refused to return him his gun, and he’s in need of protection,” Hanson said. “The money is intended to be used for anything he needs to defend himself or his family. He has complete discretion on how to use the money.”

The cashier’s check was sent through certified mail and was scheduled to be delivered Friday. Z i m m e r m a n ’ s spokesman, Shawn Vincent, said before his acquittal all donations he received were deposited into a fund dedicated to pay for his legal defense costs and fees and managed by an independent administrator. He said the Ohio foundation’s check could be allocated similarly. Vincent would not say what the donations to the fund have amounted to. But he said they have exceeded the $120,000 that Zimmerman’s attorneys had said was needed to put on a good defense before the trial started in May. The fund had raised almost $315,000 in January. The foundation’s fundraiser, which began last week, ended Tuesday. Hanson said donations were sent from 48 states and three other countries. Vincent said Zimmerman has been offered free guns but such donations haven’t been accepted.

Don’t Hesitate to Negotiate

Not true! Negotiation is a golden opportunity for everyone involved to get what they want. Of course,

If you’re selling or offering to buy a property, you can benefit from representation by an agent who is a good listener and a good communicator.

Real estate is all about relationships, and the best way to foster a good relationship is through honesty. So never be afraid to voice your wishes and concerns to your agent who is negotiating for you. Locating a buyer or finding your perfect home can be challenging. Once you’ve found what you’re looking for, let an experienced professional make sure you get it!


What’s the most important goal behind an Offer To Purchase? Agreement! How do buyers and sellers achieve that goal? Negotiation! And yet the term ”negotiation” often sends people running for the door, because they believe that negotiation is simply another word for conflict.

This is where years of experience in the real estate business can really make a difference, because real estate is not really about houses and condos – it’s about people! What other profession can you think of that relies so heavily on mutual agreement and satisfaction between two parties?
