c.jordan@thedailyunion.net MANHATTAN — Geary County municipal officials want to jump aboard a new metro planning organization, but one Manhattan City Commissioner has reservations. During recent meetings in Manhattan, officials apparently came to a consensus regarding an MPO map and to allow the Flint Hills Regional Council to be the acting agency. But City Commissioner John Matta, who works in Junction City, has concerns about the ideas and questioned what advantage Geary County officials expect to receive from their involvement. Matta said he does not have an issue with Junction City, but wants to keep the MPO within the immediate Manhattan area to maintain local control. Please see MPO, 8A

Playing fair Chamber board talks technology needs city.beat@thedailyunion.net Technology is supposed to improve life, not induce headaches. The Junction City Area Chamber of Commerce needs a new server, new telephones, new computers and a service provider as part of the plan to separate its communication activities from the city’s system, but who will pay for the equipment remains unclear. Chamber board member Ty Arneson spoke Wednesday morning for the technology subcommittee, which was tasked with researching

requirements and costs for the new equipment. Arneson said purchasing a new server would benefit the entire organization and listed it as a top priority. The server itself would cost $3,500, plus $1,500 more to install. In addition, a new computer for Chamber CEO Tom Weigand is needed sooner rather than later, he said. The subcommittee also suggests allocating roughly $1,000 to improve other computers and “see where we stand” before replacing entire machines. But several board members expressed concerns regarding how the organization’s divisions will

cover the cost. More than six months ago, five organizations — the Geary County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Military Affairs Council, the Economic Development Commission and the Activities Committee — were brought under the JCACC umbrella. Each division has its own budget. With who will foot the bill up in the air, the matter of whether money is even available also arose. “We’ve gone through the budgeting process and are looking to spend money in the near future that hasn’t been budgeted,” board member Ben Please see Needs, 8A

city.beat@thedailyunion.net Areas of Milford Lake north of School Creek Park will remain under a blue-green algae advisory for at least another week. Results from samples collected Monday by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment show that the algae has moved south since last week’s advisory notice for the far north end of the reservoir. Blue-green algae can produce toxins that could pose a health risk to people and animals. “We’ve had some higher (algae) cell counts and that’s what put us into the advisory level,” Operations Project Manager R.J. Hall said. “We haven’t really seen any toxin levels at all in the water.” High levels of phosphorous and nitrogen that run off from fields and pastures contribute to bluegreen algae blooms. Weather is another factor. Please see Lake, 8A

White House: No push for new gun laws

In brief Beirut

Prominent defector offers himself as unifying figure Syria’s most prominent defector offered himself up Thursday as a figure to unite the fractious opposition, saying he failed to persuade his former friend, President Bashar Assad, to end a bloody crackdown that has killed thousands of Syrians. The remarks by Manaf Tlass, a Syrian brigadier general until he abandoned the regime this month, were published in a Saudi newspaper just as opposition factions gathered in Qatar to try to agree on a transitional leadership if Assad’s regime falls. Some opposition members are deeply skeptical of Tlass, believing he’s far too close to the regime. Mahmoud Othman, a member of the opposition Syrian National Council, said Tlass would simply “bring back the regime with a different image.� “Those who recently defected from the regime must not take part in leading the transitional period,� Othman told The Associated Press from Istanbul, where he is based. “After the transitional period, the Syrian people will choose whomever they want through the ballots.�

INTO THE FUTURE

Mike Stewart • The Associated Press

This July 19 photo shows a Chick-fil-A fast food restaurant in Atlanta. Chick-fil-A, whose founder distinguished the fast-food chain by closing on Sunday out of religious piety, continues to mix theology with business and finds itself on the front lines of the nationĂ­s culture wars after its president, Dan Cathy, confirmed his opposition to gay marriage in June.

Chick-fil-A becomes political symbol

B y B ill B ar row

The Associated Press ATLANTA — All of a sudden, biting into a fried chicken sandwich has become a political statement. Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain known for putting faith ahead of profits by closing on Sundays, is standing firm in its opposition to gay marriage after touching off a furor earlier this month. Gay rights groups have called for a boycott, the Jim Henson Co. pulled its Muppet toys from kids’ meals, and politicians in Boston and Chicago told

Love to be inducted into Kansas Cowboy HOF

B y F rank J. B uchman

Special to The Daily Union “Cowboy” is the only way to describe Ernie Love. He’ll be remembered immortally as just that thanks to induction into the Kansas Cowboy Hall of Fame in the rodeo category, personally announced to Love July 20. That call from Hall officials at the Boot Hill Museum in Dodge City brought a broad smile to Love’s face, who was bed-ridden in his courageous battle with cancer. Love, 78, passed away Sunday afternoon at his ranch east of Manhattan with family and friends at his side. Acquaintances from his life as a cowboy — in the rodeo arena, on ranches and working with horses, cattle and young people, for whom he was a mentor to the cowboy way of life — had made contact with him in recent days. Although naming of the 2012 class into the Kansas Cowboy Hall of Fame was not made officially by staff there until Monday, Love was notified ahead of the public announcement because of his deteriorating health. Induction will be Sept. 15. Whether training a colt, shoeing a horse, competing at a rodeo, judging a rodeo, working as a rodeo pickup man, gathering a stray steer, singing and playing guitar, reciting cowboy poetry or coaching young cowboys and cowgirls at his ranch where he boarded their horses, Love fit every image anyone could envision of a cowboy.

The Salina Journal reported ThursPlease see Drugs, 4A

TOPEKA — Two relative political newcomers are vying to return a western Kansas congressional seat to Democratic hands for the first time in nearly two decades, banking on hopes that voters will opt for a fresh start amid tough economic times for a redrawn district dominated by the aviation industry. Neither Robert Tillman or Esau Freeman, both of Wichita, have held elected

office before, but both say anti-incumbent sentiment could help Democrats upset Republican Rep. Mike Pompeo in the 4th District. “Basically, I’m running to help the people of the state of Kansas,” said Tillman, 66, who lost the 2010 Democratic primary for the seat. The last Democrat to hold the seat was Dan Glickman, who was elected in 1976 but lost to Republican Todd Tiahrt in 1994. Glickman later was appointed agriculture secretary by President Bill Clinton.

The heart of the 4th District is Wichita, the largest city in Kansas, and Sedgwick County where aviation has been the dominant industry for nearly a century. Companies such as Beech, Cessna and Boeing are household names even through changing economic times. But the industry has gone through numerous changes and challenges. Boeing is leaving town when it closes its defense work in 2013, and Hawker Beechcraft is in bankruptcy and the target of a Chinese buyer.

Rodeo extending invite

High: Lower 100s Low: Upper 70s Mostly sunny

The Kaw Valley Rodeo Association will be sponsoring the 19th Annual Kaw Valley Special Rodeo for children with special needs. The event would like to extend the invitation to children ages 5 to 12 years old to sign up for it. It will be held today at the Riley County Fairgrounds, Wells Arena. The time will be 7 p.m. The Special Rodeo pairs up children with professional rodeo “partners” who assist in fun and noncompetitive rodeo activities. All events are designed to be appropriate to the children’s needs and accommodations are made for those with wheelchairs, crutches or braces. This is the 19th year it will be held.

“I lived, breathed, ate and slept to be a cowboy and to rodeo,” Love said earlier this year. Riding horseback helping on the family farm before he entered school, Love won his last bullriding at age 61 and placed in roping competition well into his 70s. “The greatest part of it all is helping kids with their horses and rodeo competition in any way I can,” Ernie insisted. “I’ve always loved horses and kids, so it’s the best way for an old cowboy to spend time.” Love competed and won consistently in bareback bronc, saddle bronc, bull riding, calf roping, steer wrestling, steer roping and team roping competition. Doing day work for other ranchers, Love was always on call when they couldn’t trap wild cattle. Raised in El Dorado, Ernie always wanted to be a cowboy and milked cows by hand for a neighbor to pay for his first horse when he was nine. Quitting school as a teenager, Love went to work for Wilbur Countryman, a Cassoday rancher. “That’s how I got started rodeoing,” Ernie said. Several weeks one summer were spent at Emmett Robert’s Rodeo Ranch near Strong City. “I learned how to ride broncs from Mr. Roberts, and his world champion sons, Ken and Gerald,” Ernie credited. Joining the Rodeo Cowboys Association when it cost $25 to buy a card, Ernie contested

day that no arrests were made during the Salina seizures, which were conducted Wednesday by the I-135-I-70 Drug Task Force. Separately, the Drug Enforcement Administration on Wednesday seized more than $36 million in cash and arrested 91 people in the nationwide crackdown. In Salina, the businesses voluntarily handed over their supplies after being informed of a ban on chemical substance UR 144 that went into effect in Kansas on Monday, Lt. Jim Norton, commander of the I-135-I-70 Drug Task Force, said. Police were holding the seized items

throughout the country. Although ranked 21st in the world bull riding standings at the time of the first National Finals Rodeo at Dallas, Texas, in 1958, Love still got to compete there, because higher qualifying cowboys drew out due to injury. One of Love’s busiest years was 1973, when he went to 69 rodeos and placed in 64 of them. Love also showed rope horses in registered quarter horse shows. Decades after most rough stock riders would have hung up their riggings, Love plunged on in the bull riding event at Old Timers Rodeos. “I was able to win quite a bit in the 50-and-over division and was second in the nation one year,” Ernie said. “I was 61 when I got on my last bull and won.” Proud of his Gold Card signifying his honorary lifetime membership in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, Ernie judged rodeos throughout the Midwest. He also collected several titles in the United Rodeo Association. One of his sons followed him into rodeo. “Little Ernie was a good roper and steer wrestler, being the Missouri High School champion one year,” Love said. When his rodeo career slowed down, Love purchased the 20-acre tract where he lived with his wife, Kathy. “It was just grass when we bought it. We built our home and then added facilities,” Love said, a “jack-of-all-trades,” who did much of the construction personally. as evidence. “The owners believed they were selling legal drugs that are not controlled,” Norton said. “That was true until Monday, when it became controlled.” A local business that was importing large quantities of the substance and supplying it to other stores was notified of that change Wednesday, he said. While officers were in the stores seizing the synthetic drugs, several people came in seeking to buy herbal potpourri, he said. Salina police started seeing cases of people overdosing on herbal potpourri, considered an alternative to marijuana, and another designer drug called bath salts in spring 2010.

Fed policy could help

he Federal Reserve’s policy making committee meets next week among growing concern that the economy has stalled — and awareness that Congress is unwilling to do much about it with an election just around the corner. The Congressional super committee formed to hash out $2.1 trillion in spending cuts failed to do its job. That means automatic spending cuts will go into effect next year. In addition, unless Congress acts, the Bush tax cuts and the payroll tax cuts President Obama pushed through will expire. That combination of spending cuts and tax hikes threaten to send the country back into recession. Toss in the continuing debt crisis in Europe, and there is plenty for economists to worry about. The economy is not growing fast enough to reduce unemployment. Job growth, after a nice spurt earlier this year has grown stagnant. Since the Fed has already cut benchmark interest rates to near zero, that isn’t an option. The next step would be a new round of so-called “asset purchases,” or quantitative easing. The Fed last took this action, in which it buys up billions of dollars in securities in order to pump up the economy, in 2010. This time around, officials are considering buying mortgage-backed securities in order to boost the housing market, in what would be the third round of quantitative easing since the recession began. At this point, another round of stimulus from the Fed is certainly worth considering. The greatest risk appears to be inflationary pressures, but right now with interest rates still at historic lows, that risk seems low. With Congress unwilling to pass any type of meaningful jobs stimulus package, perhaps the Fed by providing another round of stimulus can push private industry to invest. By doing so with mortgage-backed securities, the Fed could also help improve the housing market, further drive down long-term interest rates and improve the prospects for economic growth — regardless of who gets elected president in November.

The subject we dare not discuss

AN DIEGO — As part of the grieving process following a tragedy, Americans always want to talk — and talk, and talk. Too bad we tend to get distracted and talk about the wrong things. It happened again after the shooting spree in Aurora, Colo., that left 12 dead and 58 wounded. There is an important issue to sort through. But you won’t catch a glimpse of it on cable television, or hear it mentioned on talk radio. There is no appetite for this dialogue, because it hits too close to home. The first thing we do after a shock such as this is try to put these terrible events at arm’s length by blaming someone or something that we consider foreign to our world. It’s hard to focus on what is important when we’re distracted by causes and agendas. Within a day of the shooting, gun control advocates had seized upon the horror in Aurora to try to spark a national conversation on limiting the sale of firearms. They did so despite the fact that Colorado has — in the post-Columbine era — pretty strict gun laws, and these measures didn’t stop 24-year-old James Holmes from allegedly stockpiling weapons and ammunition and firing upon dozens of innocent people in a movie theater. Many gun enthusiasts went over the top, responding with the absurdity that the mass shooting could have been avoided if the theater patrons had been armed and able to defend themselves. Why not take the body count and triple it? We also get sidetracked by politics, especially in an election year. After the shooting, liberals were itching to blame their ideological nemesis — the tea party. ABC News’ Brian Ross added

Ruben Navarrette Commentary fuel when he went on air without the facts and suggested — incorrectly, it turned out — that the assailant was a member of the Colorado tea party. That was only 180 degrees off the mark. When the narrative came unraveled, liberals suddenly lost interest in doing something they shouldn’t have done in the first place: politicizing the tragedy. Here’s what we should be talking about. Despite the insistence of psychologists and other experts that these kinds of mass killers don’t fit a “profile,” this isn’t entirely true. More often than not, they’re young men. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were 18 and 17, respectively, when they killed 13 people and wounded 24 others at Columbine High School in 1999. Seung Hui Cho was 23 when he killed 32 people and wounded 25 others at Virginia Tech in 2007. And Jared Lee Loughner was 23 when he killed six people and wounded 14 others, including then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., in Tucson. Reared on violent movies and even more violent video games, and having grown up in a culture where guns are glorified and readily available, the Millennial Generation is armed and dangerous. Most often the children of baby boomers and now between the ages of 20 and 31, some Millennial men are

angry and alienated. Not a good combination. They’re outliers who see themselves at war with society and feel the need to escape into a fantasy world where they instantly become famous for doing evil deeds. As the father of a 5-year-old boy who loves superheroes and video games as much as the next 5-year-old boy, I’m shocked at how violent and dark that genre has become. Am I supposed to believe that years of exposure to this sort of thing won’t desensitize him to violence? It’s probably not a coincidence that Holmes, a Ph.D. student at the University of Colorado at Denver, directed his rampage at those attending a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” — the latest installment in the Batman series. Holmes, who had a Batman mask and poster in his apartment, colored his hair and referred to himself as “the Joker.” Of course, the movie didn’t cause the violence in the theater. But years of exposure to movies like it might well have set the stage. It’s no wonder that we’d rather blame guns or the tea party. Not everyone owns a gun, and relatively few people belong to the tea party. What if the problem goes deeper? The scariest thing about this horror film is that there could be more sequels yet to come.

Letters to Editor: Election 2012

Supporting Reddi

To the Editor: ’m writing to support Usha Reddi in her race for the Kansas Board of Education 6th District. I have known Usha for 15 years, watching her function with great success as a stay-at-home mom, a volunteer for the school and the community, a university student, and a teacher. She has been active in the school district as a leader, both in her profession and her community, standing up for kids and teachers while emphasizing the importance of those kids and teachers to the welfare of the community. I have observed her passion and her effectiveness in those mentorships. She has been a good friend, standing by me when I needed that friendship. Anyone who can wear all those hats, and wear them so well, deserves our support. Usha teaches first grade at Ogden Elementary school and was ecently named USD 383’s elementary teacher of the year. She knows that each child in a classroom arrives at school with different needs and strives to meet all of those needs. She teaches gifted children, children with learning disabilities, kids who have a parent serving in a war zone, and “average” kids who need a good teacher to keep them from “falling through the cracks.” Usha understands that parents are their children’s first teachers. She encourages parents to continue that important role as their children progress through the public schools. Usha is committed to making sure our children have the education they need to succeed in careers or college. She supports rigorous standards and common-sense, student-based measures of achievement. Our community has trusted Usha with our children and grandchildren. We can trust her to represent all Kansas students on the State Board of Education. Please join me in voting for Usha Reddi on Aug. 7.

To the Editor: ony is an honest, hard working, knowledgeable law man who puts his life on the line for our county and city every day. His experience, formal education and professionalism fully qualify him to be the next sheriff of Geary County. In 1974, Tony was born in Junction City’s Geary Community Hospital. He and his wife, Jodi, a Kansas State Trooper, are parents of two sons, Cameron, 11, and Konner, 3. Tony grew up on a family farm/ranch in southern Geary County and attended school in White City, graduating from White City in 1993. After pursuing several part-time jobs, in the fall he entered college in El Dorado, at Butler County Community College, majoring in criminal justice and police science. In 1995, Tony started his career in law enforcement as a jailer with the Sumner County Sheriff’s Department. In 1996, he moved to the Geary County Sheriff’s Office as a jailer and in 1998, was selected to move to patrol and received instruction at the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center.

After receiving specialized training from the KBI, he was the first deputy in the Geary County Sheriff’s Department to serve on a joint tactical entry team with the Junction City Police Department, TRU Team (SWAT). He worked closely with the Drug Operations Group, served high risk search warrants, high risk vehicle stops, barricaded subjects and active shooter response. In 2009, Tony became the law enforcement coordinator for the JC, Geary County Crime Stoppers. In 2010, he negotiated a new maintenance program for patrol cars, reducing costs while providing improved services on the vehicles. Also in 2010, he became a member of the Fort Riley threat work group. In 2011, he initiated a new program (not a federal grant) where the department is able to purchase body armor for the deputies at half the cost of retail. During his career with the sheriff’s department, Tony has received numerous awards and commendations, including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Heartland Award for the swimming rescue of a drowning boy on Milford Lake and a letter of commendation for stopping a driverless vehicle in the middle of the night (the driver bailed out during a chase in town) from continuing into a house.

Petersen family coming from Branson Performing family to play near White City

Commentary

Is America losing its way? B y C lint D ecker

Special to The Daily Union

Special to The Daily Union

The Petersen family of Branson, Mo. will present two concerts at the Parkerville Baptist Church near White City Sunday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. The public is invited to enjoy the bluegrass and Gospel music by one of the premier groups in the Branson area. There is no admission charge, but a love offering will be accepted at each of the services. A carry-in meal will be enjoyed at noon by those who want to participate. Table service and drink also will be provided. The Petersens began a career in the world-class music capital of Branson after Jon, the father, retired as a doctor from the U.S. Air Force. They chose Branson for its love of God, country and acoustic music. Led by daughter Katie, a student at the College of the Ozarks who plays the fiddle, and her sister, Ellen, who is also a student who plays a hot pink banjo, they blend their voices

The story of how a nation was formed along with its reason for existence is pivotal to its future direction. That is why the remembrance of July 4, 1776, is so vital for the United States of America. We must not forget. If we do, we will lose our way and put our future in jeopardy. Patrick Henry, a ratifier of the U.S. Constitution, said “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.” The cornerstone of America’s founding is God, the Bible and a clear Christian faith. The most valuable documents in our history and the story of our founding reveal this without question. However, the new age in which America lives, this element of our history has been buried with the shovels of political correctness and tolerance. Departing from it is causing us to lose our way and evolve into a morally and spiritually bankrupt nation. It appears that we the people are America’s greatest security threat and we are on the verge of collapsing in upon ourselves. The Scriptures say, “The nations have sunk in the pit that they made; in the net that they hid their own foot has been caught” (Psalm 9:15). I believe the management of our national prosperity is contributing to our self-destruction. Since the industrial age, America has prospered to become one of the wealthiest nations on earth. Wars and the Great Depression tested it, but we have continually bounced back, becoming even more prosperous. However, has our nation’s wealth blinded us, causing our bountiful blessing to become our dreaded curse? Perhaps we are becoming our own gods thinking that through our wealth, education, technology and science we can keep this Great Experiment going. Let us not forget the one who formed us into a nation. Oh, may it never be. There has not been one like it in the history of mankind. America is truly unique. The providential, sovereign hand of our creator has guided, blessed and used us in countless ways. Let us humble ourselves before him. He has been our hope in the past and through God’s grace, may he be our hope for the future.

Poll: Few think Romney’s faith resembles their own

B y Jennifer A giesta

The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Most of America doesn’t relate to Mitt Romney’s religion but that may not matter in his race against President Barack Obama. Those are the findings of a new Pew Research Center poll released Thursday, about a month before Republican Romney is set to become the first Mormon presidential nominee of a major political party. Misgivings about the Mormon faith are widespread and persistent. Nearly two-thirds of nonMormons said they see Romney’s faith as very different from their own while just half consider it a Christian faith. Those numbers are little changed since Romney’s first run for the presidency pushed Mormonism to the political forefront in 2007. Despite those qualms, most voters who know that Romney is a devout Mormon say they are comfortable with his religious beliefs, and few voters reject his candidacy solely because of concerns about his faith. Romney rarely discusses the details of his faith in public, preferring to focus on how it has helped him connect with people. In an interview Wednesday with NBC News, Romney again credited his religion with shaping his perspective and said he would talk about his experiences in the church. He did not address his spiritual beliefs. “I’m — without question — I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I’m proud of that,” Romney said. “Some call that the Mormon Church, that’s fine

In this July 20 file photo, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney speaks in Bow, N.H. Most of America doesn’t relate to Mitt Romney’s religion but that may not matter in his race against President Barack Obama. Those are the findings of a new Pew Research Center poll a month before Romney will officially become the first Mormon presidential nominee of the two major political parties. with me. I’ll talk about my experiences in the church. There’s no question they’ve helped shape my perspective.” Views of Mormonism generally have held steady. About six in 10 non-Mormons see it as very different from their own faith, and about half say they consider it to be a Christian religion, as Mormons themselves do. Among other Christians, black Protestants (66 percent) and white evangelicals (63 percent) are most apt to say they consider the faith sharply different from their own, while white evangelicals (42 percent) were most likely to say the Mormon faith is not a Christian one.

The poll, conducted jointly by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion and Public Life and its Center for the People and the Press, found the public’s knowledge about the religious beliefs of the two men vying for the presidency remains murky — even as two-thirds say it is important that a president have strong religious beliefs. Nearly three in 10 voters (29 percent) were unaware of or incorrect about the religious backgrounds of both candidates. Sixty percent of registered voters know Romney is a Mormon, about the same as in a March poll. Nine percent think he follows another faith and 32 percent weren’t sure. About

eight in 10 who know of Romney’s beliefs are either comfortable with them (60 percent) or say it doesn’t matter (21 percent). Discomfort with Romney’s faith peaks among several groups not often on the same side in politics: white evangelical Protestants, black Protestants, atheists and agnostics. White evangelical Protestants broadly back Romney for president despite their misgivings about his religious background, while the other groups are far more likely to support Obama. Overall, the poll found Obama holding a 50 percent to 43 percent lead over Romney. Concerns about Romney’s religion seem to dampen enthusiasm for his candidacy among some Republicans. Those Republicans who are aware of Romney’s faith and are uncomfortable with it are far more tepid about his candidacy than Republicans who express no concerns about his faith. That diminished enthusiasm could hurt Romney this fall. A candidate’s strongest supporters often are the most likely to turn out to vote. The poll found Romney lagging behind Obama in strong support generally, with 32 percent strongly backing the president and 15 percent committed to Romney. With regard to Obama, the poll found that misperceptions about his faith persist. About half of registered voters correctly say Obama is a Christian. Seventeen percent misidentify him as a Muslim, 3 percent say he adheres to some other faith and 31 percent say they are unsure. That’s a slightly higher num-

system along with the recent arrival of the new Apache helicopters gives Fort Riley “the most modern combat aviation brigade in the world.” The Gray Eagle has a 50-foot wingspan and weighs 4,300 pounds, Vedder said. Soldiers currently are training in California prior to the arrival of the vehicles at Fort Riley. Vedder said he expects to receive four here in Kansas. Training will continue with the more than 100 troops assigned to the unit and then the aircraft and soldiers then will be deployed to Afghanistan. Vedder said unlike the Apache helicopters and other Army aerial machinery, these unmanned vehicles will be piloted by enlisted personnel. “They are the cream of the crop, hand chosen by their aptitudes,” he said. The Gray Eagles can carry missiles and perform strike missions. According to the US Army and Gray Eagle UAS websites, the Gray Eagle can provide nearly 24 hours of coverage while in a reconnaissance configuration. This ability almost quadruples the flight time of the Shadow, a similar UAS. In addition to the reconnaissance configuration, the Gray Eagle can be configured to become an asset to aircraft over the battlefield. Gray Eagle operators have learned how to interact with aircraft pilots from all branches of the military in order to provide support. Vedder talked about Apache pilots, using the new Apache Block III, having the ability to take control and operate the Gray Eagle from the cockpit. Apache pilots can also see through the payload that the Gray Eagle is carrying.

said. “We’re more interested in the hardware.” The need for most of the items isn’t urgent, but there is a soft deadline. “We want to make sure we have what we need when we move,” board member Mark Ediger said. The board originally was scheduled to discuss location options at Wednesday’s meeting, but Weigand was not present, so the board tabled talks. A decision on technology was put off until Weigand could put together a plan to address costs. “We don’t have enough information, in my opinion, as far as where the dollars are coming from,” Arneson said. Ultimately, Gray Eagle operators will have the capability to acquire and engage targets on their own according to the needs of the ground troops or the ground commander. The Gray Eagle operates usually at about 12,000 feet in the air. Vedder showed photo scans taken of the ground from the vehicle. “You can see footprints on the ground,” he said. “It’s incredible.” Software on the machine also allows to scan the area a second time and will show what has moved, including tire tracks, types of vehicles and personnel. “This is pretty exciting technology,” he said. “It has great capabilities and it is exciting to bring this to Fort Riley.” The crafts will be tested at Fort Riley, mostly operating in restricted training areas. Vedder said the Gray Eagles won’t be flown over heavily populated areas. They will typically take off at Marshall Air Field and travel over Camp Funston on the way to the restricted area and return back on a similar path. The Gray Eagles are expected to arrive in September, but more approvals will be needed between now and then from Pentagon and FAA before it is approved for operation at Fort Riley. Vedder, an Apache helicopter pilot, said he wanted to come back to Fort Riley, saying “there is something special about it.” “There is a genuine care and concern of this community that makes it different,” he said. Vedder said he has been stationed at installations all over the country and in Germany. “It was my No. 1 selection to come back here,” he said. Fort Campbell and Fort Hood are the only other two locations for the Gray Eagles.

MPO Continued from Page 1A

A policy board would have the power of federal law to pick the transportation priorities for the MPO region. “In essence, you’re handing over the prioritization of your transportation project to a third party or regional government, per se,” Matta said. A plan has not yet been adopted, but Manhattan officials have until November to make a final decision on the MPO, which is a federally mandated and federally funded transportation policy organization made up of local government and governmental transportation authorities. “I’m not going to simply go along with something because others have planned it that way,” Matta said. “I’m going to look at it objectively and do what I think is best.” Others disagreed with Matta. Ty Warner, executive director of the Flint Hills Regional Council, said the MPO has to take a regional approach for it to be effective. “I think some of the concerns are based on a

misunderstanding of what ‘regional collaboration’ means,” Warner said. “The region has worked hard to get to this point, and we’re still together. We certainly don’t want to take a step backwards now.” Warner said the council he heads was formed to work out regional issues, similar to what the MPO would be designed to do. “I hope that members of the city of Manhattan will continue to see their place in the rest of the region,” Warner said. Geary County Commissioner Ben Bennett hopes Manhattan officials hold to the idea of a regional concept. “I hope we can keep the regional concept together and expand,” Bennett said. “We came a long way and I hate to see it go backwards because of individual philosophies.” Geary County Commissioner Larry Hicks said Matta is making premature speculation and judgements on the issue. Hicks said regional consolidation could benefit the community’s transportation efforts for rural and urban residents. “I’m not going to say he’s not entitled to his opinion because he is, but

I think within the context he’s speaking about, he doesn’t have anything definitive that can show an underscore of how it would be adverse to the city of Manhattan.” One of Matta’s concerns is financial. The Kansas Department of Transportation provided a $160,000 grant to the Manhattan urbanized area (UZA) to meet the requirements of forming the MPO. Receiving that money requires a $32,000 match from the city. Matta addressed previous discussions regarding municipalities contributing matching funds. “I’m concerned about making it a bigger area with only the same pool of funds,” Matta said. “If you put it in the Flint Hills Regional Council, you add another third party involved.” The Federal Aid Highway Act of 1962 requires the formation of an MPO for any UZA with more than 50,000 people. He said the MPO will come with a lot of regulations they have to follow, such as planning and tracking. Transportation issues also will include a landuse aspect such as zoning if something is built. Matta also mentioned special interest groups.

“All of these groups are going to be advocating for their own special interests, and you have developers who are looking out for their own special interest working within this regional organization,” he said. “Frankly, I think it’s going to be hard for us in Manhattan to maintain control of this kind of entity on our own, let alone if it gets regional.” For Matta, the Flint Hills Regional Council for cooperation works well, but not as an regional government. “That’s the difference I see,” he said. “I like for us to get together and cooperate, but for each area to be autonomous and be able to what’s best for their community and have control.” He said a lot of people worked on the council with the belief they would take over once it came to the certain level. He said he’s going to work to do what’s best for Manhattan and the region. Matta said there are possibilities to add to the MPO as it moves forward and the group learns more about the process. “Let’s not try to boil the ocean to start with,’” he said.

Chiefs sign 1st-round draft pick Poe The Chiefs have signed firstround pick Dontari Poe on the eve of training camp. The team announced the deal in statement Thursday. Poe took part in the Chiefs’ entire offseason program, despite failing to reach a deal with the team that made him the No. 11 overall selection. Nobody has seemed overly concerned that the negotiations dragged out until the start of training camp. The 6-foot-3, 346-pound Poe is expected to be in St. Joseph, Mo., for the first workout on Friday. He’s being counted on to shore up one of the team’s biggest weakness a year ago.

Basketball

Jones to leave K-State basketball program Senior guard Jeremy Jones has left the Kansas State basketball program. New Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said in a statement Thursday that he had several discussions with Jones over the past few weeks, and Jones made the decision to leave. The 6-foot-2 Jones played in 20 games for former coach Frank Martin last season, averaging 3.1 points and 8.2 minutes. He scored a seasonhigh 12 points against Oklahoma in January. Jones transferred to Kansas State in May 2011 from Seward County (Kan.) Community College.

Collin was hurt during a collision with Chelsea’s Michael Essien near midfield during the game Wednesday night between a team of MLS All-Stars and the Premier League club in Chester, Pa. Collin played 36 minutes before getting hurt in the MLS team’s 3-2 victory. The 26-year-old Frenchman has started all 21 regular-season matches this season, helping Sporting KC to post nine shutouts with a league-leading 0.90 goals-against average. Collin has also scored three goals with an assist.

Double Duty

The teamwork continues even after the German gymnasts leave the floor. Several English-speaking reporters wanted to talk to Oksana Chusovitina, who is competing in her sixth Olympics at 37 — unheard of for a female gymnast. There was just one problem: Chusovitina, who is originally from Uzbekistan, doesn’t speak English, and there were no translators available. A TV researcher who speaks Russian initially offered to help, only to realize he was needed for something else on the other side of the room. Elisabeth Seitz then leaned over and said, “If you need translating, I can try to help.” She did better than that, translating about five minutes’ worth of questions for Chusovitina. Chusovitina competed for

the Unified Team at the 1992 Olympics, then her native Uzbekistan in Atlanta, Sydney and Athens. She moved to Germany in 2002, so her son, Alisher, could be treated there for leukemia. She has lived there ever since, and switched nationalities in 2006 to express her appreciation for her adopted country.

Rafael opened the scoring in the 16th minute, Leandro Damiao added another in the 26th and Neymar scored in the 30th to give Brazil a comfortable halftime lead before Egypt made it interesting with goals by captain Mohamed Aboutrika in the 52nd and substitute Mohamed Salah in the 76th. Brazil was able to control the rest of the game and held on for the victory, staying on track for its first gold in Olympic men’s soccer.

Sandusky shower abuse victim to sue Penn State B y M ark S colforo

The Associated Press HARRISBURG, Pa. — For months, the identity of the boy who was sexually assaulted in the locker room showers by Jerry Sandusky was one of the biggest mysteries of the Penn State scandal. Now, for the first time, a man has come forward to claim he was that boy, and is threatening to sue the university. The man’s lawyers said Thursday they have done an

University President Rodney Erickson and the board of trustees “have publicly emphasized that their goal is to find solutions that rest on

The statement from the man’s attorneys said Victim 2 suffered “extensive sexual abuse over many years both before and after the 2001 incident Michael McQueary witnessed.” McQueary testified in December at a hearing that he had seen Sandusky and a boy, both naked, in a team shower after hearing skinon-skin slapping sounds. “I would have described Please see Penn St., 7B

how they’ll watch the opening ceremony. All is not perfect with the U.S. women’s Olympic soccer team, but life is generally good now that the Americans are firmly in charge of their group after a come-from-behind opening win over France. “Luckily enough for us, we were extremely composed,” midfielder Tobin Heath said Thursday as she relaxed in the lobby of the security-laden team hotel a short walk from the River Clyde. “We have such a belief in this team that we can really come back from the impossible.” Overcoming an early 2-0 deficit to win 4-2 wasn’t exactly achieving the impossible, but it was a strong finish to a game that raised some early alarm bells. Assistant coach Tony Gustafsson spent halftime telling the defenders to stop giving the French so much space, a trend that can’t continue if the Americans are to win a third consecutive gold medal. But head coach Pia Sundhage has taught her players to put a

Brazil Continued from Page 1B

Egypt dominated the first few minutes of the match at Millennium Stadium but Brazil slowly grabbed control. The Egyptians entered the competition trying to restore some of the country’s soccer pride nearly six months after the stadium riot that killed more than 70 people and forced the suspension of the national league. Manchester United right back Rafael scored the first goal after a perfect through ball by newly signed Chelsea playmaker Oscar. Rafael cleared a defender with one touch and fired a low left-footed shot into the net. “We showed our quality in the first half,” Rafael said. “We weren’t able to keep playing as well but in the end it was a good result.” Oscar set up the second goal too, beating a defender and the goalkeeper to a long ball lobbed into the area and sending a pass back toward Damiao, whose shot easily got past the lone Egyptian defender trying to block the net. “We got off on the right foot,” Oscar said. “The first match is always hard but we have to be proud of what we did in the first half.” Neymar, seen as Brazil’s future star, added to the lead after finding Hulk open on the left side of the area. The FC Porto forward crossed the ball back and

Said defender Christie Rampone: “If you’re going to give up two goals, we definitely gave it up the right way. We had a lot of time ahead of us.”

Neymar headed it in from close range. Egypt pulled one closer after a set piece from just outside the area in the 52nd. Meteab Emad struck the post after the cross into the box and Aboutrika scored off the rebound. Salah got the Egyptians even closer after the defenders failed to clear a ball inside the area and allowed him to get a shot into the left corner. “If we hadn’t the mistakes in the first half maybe we could’ve had a better result at the end, but that’s football, we will have to learn from it,” Egypt coach

Besides, with such prolific scorers, a defensive miscue or two in the back end isn’t cause to panic. “I enjoy being a defender for this team,” Rampone said with a

laugh. “They make it easy.” With their toughest group opponent out of the way, the top-ranked Americans are poised to finish atop their quartet of teams and get a favorable seed entering the quarterfinals. They next play Colombia on Saturday in Glasgow, followed by a game against North Korea in Manchester next week. The less-than-cheerful news was about Boxx, who had to leave the first half of Wednesday’s game with a hamstring injury. Sundhage said Boxx was to meet with the trainers to figure out a rehab plan to see if she can recover in time for Saturday’s game. Most national teams would find it a severe blow to lose a solid veteran midfielder like Boxx, but the Americans have an incredible array of replacement parts on the bench. It speaks volumes that the substitute for Boxx was Carli Lloyd, a longtime starter who is adjusting to a new role as a substitute. Lloyd scored the go-ahead goal in the second half, a blast from outside the box that brought back memories of her gamewinner that secured the gold medal in Beijing four years ago. “We do know how deep this team is, and how our 18th player

could be starting on any other national team,” Heath said. “We don’t take a negative approach on that; we take a positive approach. As Pia says, there’s game-winners on the bench — as Carli showed.” The team also spent part of the day doing yoga, and veteran striker Wambach took to Twitter to show how she helps settle down the Achilles that are showing the wear and tear of a decade-plus of national team games. She posted a photo of herself lying on the floor, legs wrapped in blue insulation with the comment: “Doing whatever it takes.” The team resumes practice Friday and then will gather to watch the opening ceremony on TV in the hotel. The U.S. women’s team hasn’t marched in the ceremony since 2000 because it requires too much time to travel from the remote soccer venues, but this time the players are adding a new touch: They’re going to wear the official opening ceremony outfits sent to all the U.S. athletes. “We’re going to rock ’em,” Heath said. “I don’t know how the procession’s going to go, but we’re going to do something awesome.”

Neto was making his debut with the Brazilian national team after replacing injured regular starter Rafael, who was dropped from the squad earlier in the week because of a right elbow injury from practice. Neto nearly gave a goal away early in the first half when he allowed an Egyptian striker to get too close to him and almost didn’t

‘Rude’ guest provides opportunity to teach

Dear Annie: My younger brother, “George,” is on the autism spectrum. He has a friend, “Cindy,” with similar needs. For the past few years, my parents have welcomed Cindy into our home, and now she feels comfortable inviting herself over and doing whatever she wants. This means bossing George around and yelling at him while he avoids her by watching TV in a different room. She also carries our cats as if they are dolls. She won’t let go even when they protest by scratching and biting. Cindy is in her late teens and should know better, but she is loud, pushy and obnoxious. She doesn’t listen when someone tells her “no.” Despite my best efforts to be polite and civil, I cannot tolerate her. When she’s here, I leave the house or lock myself in my room. The problem is, my parents are often too preoccupied with business, phone calls and visits from our neighbors to deal with Cindy, so I have to be the emergency adult. I have tried talking to my parents about Cindy, pointing out her behavior and the way she treats George, but my pleas fall on deaf ears. Cindy’s parents aren’t any better. In fact, I think they are taking advantage of us by letting Cindy spend so much time here. But I seem to be the only one bothered. Is there anything I can do to put an end to these visits without causing offense? I can’t take much more of her. — Ignored and Outraged Dear Ignored: Cindy’s behavior may not be as tempered at this age as you seem to believe it should be, so we urge you to be less judgmental. In fact, you are in an excellent position to explain to Cindy how to treat the cats more gently and behave in a more acceptable manner. But if you don’t wish to work with her, she should not be your problem. George can tell your parents if he no longer wants Cindy to visit, and they should

handle it. And when Cindy is around, your parents should supervise more closely. We suspect they are avoiding her, too. Dear Annie: My daughter and I recently hosted a bridal shower in my home. We planned a fun event and took special pains with the food and drink offered. I was terribly offended when several guests came with their own large sodas. We had lemonade, iced tea and water all served in crystal pitchers with lemon slices. Meanwhile, their big plastic cups with straws were not a pretty sight, especially when they plopped them down on my end tables. Please tell people that when they are invited to someone’s home where refreshments will be served, it is rude to bring their own. — Not a Fan of the Big Gulp Dear Fan: Consider them told. But don’t expect them to listen. Too many folks do not understand what appropriate behavior means — and resent any attempt to be educated about it.

Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s just as easy to create useful outcomes as it is to waste energy in disorder.You’ll make sure that each action you execute produces a reaction that’s as productive as it is equal and opposite. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Comfort, power or fame is not necessary because so much of what you do is its own reward.You’re not immune to the attraction of comfort, power and fame, and maybe you’d even like it.The point is that you don’t need it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21).The conversations you have, the ways you burn your energy and spend your time, and the love you give throughout the day will, by sundown, have you absolutely tired out. CANCER (June 22-July 22). One might think that happiness was something that once learned you could always recreate. Not so. Happiness takes different forms, so it can never be created in the exact same way twice. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s lucky for the trees that they don’t have eyeballs, so they can’t discourage themselves with comparisons to the bigger, taller trees in the forest or loom superior to smaller growth. Be like the trees. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).The act of kindness you perform will release a rush of serotonin in your brain.This is one among many reasons that you don’t care if the kindness is ever repaid. Giving is getting.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). James Bond wasn’t born cool. He’s a highly trained agent who has mastered strategies to cope in a variety of situations. Think of Bond as you welcome every opportunity to develop your own set of coping strategies. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Being completely engaged in an endeavor produces a state of “flow” that dissolves emotion, staves off hunger and delays the need for sleep.The more “flow” experiences you can create for yourself, the happier you’ll be. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).You may hesitate to dive into your joy. Maybe someone near isn’t able to do the same, or there’s another kind of hold-up delaying your satisfaction. When you finally can do what you want, you’ll savor the experience. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s like you are writing your destiny with an indelible marker. Make a strong commitment, and then back your decision with immediate and irreversible action. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).This is an age when many people spend what they don’t have to buy what they can’t afford to impress who they don’t know. Your realistic and modest approach will be a breath of fresh air. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).You’ve wanted to rid yourself of that personality quirk for some time. Have you considered the upside of keeping it, though? This unique part of you has benefits.

Winning them all

Peanuts

By FRANK STEWART Tribune Media Services

Bill Pollack was declarer in today’s deal (reported by Barry Rigal) from the North American Pairs at the Spring Championships. Pollack responded one spade to his partner’s opening bid. After West doubled, North’s jump to three spades had a preemptive flavor — she could have redoubled with great high-card strength — but Pollack had enough to go to game. West led a heart, and East put up the king. Pollack took the ace and figured that East had a high club since West would have had an easy club opening lead if he’d held the A-K. Since West’s vulnerable entry into the auction suggested opening values or more, he surely had the king of spades. 13 TRICKS So at Trick Two, Pollack led the ace of spades. When the king fell obligingly, he drew trumps, ran the diamonds and finished with 13 tricks for plus 710 and a fine matchpoint result. I will note, as I often feel compelled to do, that West would have done better to pass instead of indulging in an “it’s my turn” double. DAILY QUESTION You hold: ♠ K ♥ Q 8 4 3 ♦ 8 5 2 ♣ A Q J 10 2. You open one club. Your partner bids one spade.

What do you say? ANSWER: Some players would have avoided this problem by not opening. A rebid of two clubs should show a longer suit. Bid 1NT to suggest a minimum balanced hand. If partner insists on spades, your lone king may suffice as support. With Q 7 6 5 3, K J 5 2, K 7 3, 4, he can bid two hearts next, but he would be obliged to pass two clubs with that hand.

Phelps Continued from Page 1B

seemed certain he was beaten in the 100-meter butterfly? “I’m competitive in anything that I do,” Phelps said. “I’m sure I’ll pick up another hobby or something else that will keep me occupied for the rest of my life.” No matter what happens in London, Phelps’ legacy in the pool is largely secure. He’s won a staggering 14 gold medals, which is five more than the second-best number on the list. He’ll almost surely surpass the mark for most medals overall, coming into these Olympics just two shy of the 18 won by Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina. By any measure, Phelps is the greatest swimmer the world has ever seen, and these games should secure his title at the top of the Olympic heap. Maybe that’s why he seems to be having a lot more fun in the days leading up to London than he did at Athens or Beijing, where he was under intense pressure to turn in record-breaking performances. “This is closure,” Phelps said Thursday, sitting beside Bowman in the largest conference room at the Main Press Centre. “Now it’s just a matter of how many toppings I want on my sundae.” Several hundred media packed the room, including

Olympic speedskating star Apolo Anton Ohno, who’s now working for NBC and got in a question about how Phelps keeps things simple with all the distractions. Actually, he seems to be having a blast. After Phelps walked in the room, he pulled out his phone and snapped a picture of all the reporters and cameras staring back at him, capturing another moment on his farewell tour. “This is the last competitive meet I’m going to have in my career,” Phelps said. “It’s big. It’s something I’ve never experienced. I’m going to have a lot of firsts and a lot of lasts this week.” He’s been relaxing in the common room of his apartment in the Olympic Village, watching episodes of “The Wire,” the gritty drama based in his hometown of Baltimore. He’s spent time strolling through the sprawling complex, caught off guard when he spotted three Russian female athletes — all of them taller than the 6-foot-4inch swimmer. “Geez, I thought I was tall,” Phelps said with a chuckle. He better chill now, because he’ll be a very busy guy starting Saturday with his duel in the 400 individual medley against American rival Ryan Lochte. Even though Phelps dropped out of the 200 freestyle, he’s still swimming more events than anyone except teammate Missy Franklin: four individual races and, most likely, all

Lee Jinman • The Associated Press

Michael Phelps poses for a photo during a media day for Speedo sponsored swimmers in London, Wednesday. three relays. Compared to the last Olympics, where he broke Mark Spitz’s record for a single games with eight gold medals, this program looks like a relative breeze for the 27-yearold Phelps. The fact that someone swimming seven events could be viewed as taking it easy perhaps sums up his dominance better than anything else. “In Beijing, we were trying to conquer everything,” he said. “We’re a lot more relaxed. We’re having fun.” When Bowman was asked what makes Phelps such a dominating swimmer, he pointed to his physical attributes (large feet and a long torso), the support of a swimming family, a superb work ethic and perhaps the greatest attribute of all — “his ability to focus under pres-

sure.” “If you checked off everything you wanted in a superstar athlete,” Bowman said, “he has all those.” Phelps has been such a dominating figure for so long, some wonder how the sport he took to new heights will carry on once he’s gone. In many ways, he’s like Tiger Woods in golf. Not necessarily the one with the intriguing personality. Not the one who comes across to fans as warm and fuzzy. Maybe not even the most popular one with the fans (judging from the fan reactions at meets this year, that would be Lochte). But Phelps is the one who draws most of the attention, the one whose sheer brilliance was enough to persuade the IOC to flip-flop the entire swimming schedule at Beijing so NBC could televise the finals live in the States. “I think the neatness of the accomplishment in Beijing really sort of catapulted him to a whole different level,” said Peter Carlisle, Phelps’ agent. “It’s not just what happened in the pool, but having so much of the world watching it. The timing of it, the manner in which he won, the fact that it unfolded over several days. It all had this cumulative effect. Eventually, he drew everyone in, and it’s hard to captivate the attention of a significant percentage of the world at any given time.” USA Swimming has expe-

rienced a significant jump in revenue and membership during the Phelps era. In 2001, the year after he competed in his first Olympics as a 15-year-old, finishing fifth in his lone event, the governing body had about 232,000 year-round swimmers. By 2010, that number had grown to nearly 287,000 — a 24 percent increase in less than a decade, much of it surely attributed to kids wanting to follow in the wake of the world’s No. 1 swimmer. The sport figures to take a bump — in the wrong direction — once Phelps is gone. “It’s very much like Lance Armstrong not being in the Tour de France,” said another U.S. swimmer, Brendan Hansen. “America was obsessed with watching the Tour de France when Lance was winning all those Tour de Frances. As soon as he got out, it kind of held back a little bit.” Others hope Phelps’ retirement will steer some attention to other worthy swimmers. Lochte has an engaging personality and no plans to retire, even though he’s actually a few months older than Phelps. Franklin is just 17 and poised for a major breakthrough before she even begins her senior year of high school. “There’s two ways you can look at it,” said Teri McKeever, head coach of the U.S. women’s team. “Yeah, there’s probably going to be a dropoff without Michael. But

you’re going to have Ryan, you’re going to have Missy Franklin ... you’re going to have a lot of new people. In some ways it’s going to be exciting. How exciting is it going to be to see who wants to step up to be the next Michael. I think that’s kind of cool.” Many wonder if Phelps will stick with his plan to retire when plenty of swimmers are competing into their 30s, and even their 40s. Plus, it’s become downright commonplace for swimmers to walk away from the sport, vowing they are done, only to return when they run out of challenges away from the pool. Just this year, Ian Thorpe and 40-year-old Janet Evans made unsuccessful returns. Anthony Ervin, on the other hand, qualified for the U.S. team after an eightyear layoff. Bowman has no doubt that Phelps’ career is over. For good. “I would say he’s not coming back,” the coach said. “And if I can help it, he’s definitely not coming back.” But Carlisle, his agent, isn’t totally ruling out a return. “Michael has made it very clear he doesn’t intend to swim past London,” he said. “I respect that he’s saying that. At the same time, I think he has earned the right to be given space and, maybe for the first time in his life, not think about training and swimming. Experience life a little bit.”

United Football League will return for 4th season The Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. — The United Football League will return for a fourth season and a cable channel will televise games. UFL spokesman Larry Weisman said Thursday that details about the second-tier pro league’s structure would be announced later.

Penn St. Continued from Page 1B

that it was extremely sexual and I thought that some kind of intercourse was going on,” McQueary said. McQueary, who estimated the boy to be around 10 years old, reported the abuse to school officials, including longtime coach Joe Paterno, but none of them told police. In a recent report conducted by former FBI Director Louis Freeh and commissioned by Penn State, the investigators excoriated Paterno and the other administrators for not attempting to identify Victim 2, saying it showed “a striking lack of empathy.” Trustees fired Paterno, who has since died, because he failed to do more about claims against Sandusky, and the scathing independent review said several top school officials looked the other way because they were afraid of bad publicity. The NCAA has vacated 112 Penn State wins. In a pair of voicemails recorded last year, released with the statement and posted online by the lawyers, a voice that’s purportedly Sandusky’s expresses his love and says he wants to express his feelings “up front.” The voicemails are dated Sept. 12 and Sept. 19, less than two months before the former Penn State coach was arrested on child sex abuse charges. Sandusky was convicted in June of 45 sex abuse counts and awaits sentencing. The second voicemail asks whether Victim 2 would like to attend Penn State’s next game. Sandusky left “numerous”

CBS Sports Network has agreed to televise games on Wednesdays and Fridays over an eight-week season starting Sept. 19. A network spokesman declined to disclose terms. A network news release said former NFL coaches Marty Schottenheimer and Jim Fassel would

return. Schottenheimeier is with the Norfolk, Va., team and Fassel with Las Vegas. Omaha, Neb., and Sacramento, Calif., also had teams in 2011. The league is made up of players who were cut in NFL training camps, veterans who want to get back to the NFL and free agents.

voicemails for their client that fall, the attorneys said. Sandusky has said very little publicly since he gave interviews in the weeks after his arrest and did not testify at his trial. Before the trial, defense attorney Joe Amendola said he had met with a man he believed he might be Victim 2 and the man told him he had not been abused by Sandusky. Amendola said he was not convinced and did not intend to subpoena him, but also said Sandusky himself was insistent they had the right person. The statement from Victim 2’s lawyers leaves many questions unanswered, including whether he had been in contact with prosecutors before or during the trial, whether he remembers McQueary, and whether he is the same person who met with Amendola. “Jerry Sandusky’s abuse of Victim 2 and other children is a direct result of a conspiracy to conceal Sandusky’s conduct and the decisions by top Penn State officials that facilitated and enabled his access to victims,” the statement read. “We intend to file a civil lawsuit against Penn State University and others and to hold them accountable for the egregious and reckless conduct that facilitated the horrific abuse our client suffered.” The statement did not say when the lawsuit would be filed or contain details on what redress the plaintiff is seeking. The lawyers said they would not have further comment, and messages left for their spokesman were not immediately returned. Several messages seeking

comment from Amendola and Sandusky’s other lawyer, Karl Rominger, were not immediately returned. Prosecutors had said on several occasions they did not know the identity of the boy, and they offered no reaction to the lawyers’ announcement Thursday. “We can’t comment, given both our ongoing criminal prosecutions and our ongoing investigation,” said Nils Frederiksen, spokesman for the attorney general’s office. The attorneys who released the statement include several based in Philadelphia and in State College, home to Penn State’s main campus — where the shower assault took place. They also represent three other young men Sandusky was convicted of abusing but have not filed any lawsuits. A second accuser has filed paperwork indicating an additional complaint is in the works, while other lawyers also have indicated they represent young men with potential claims. This week Penn State’s general liability insurer sought to deny or limit coverage for Sandusky-related claims. Pennsylvania Manufacturers’ Association Insurance argued that Penn State withheld key information needed to assess risk. In June, after Sandusky was convicted, the university said it hoped to quickly compensate victims and would reach out to their lawyers. Penn State spokesman Dave La Torre declined to comment on anything related to the victims and any settlement discussions.

London Continued from Page 1B

buses. Here, they are impossible to avoid. You’re moving along and gradually become aware of a double-deck whale, breathing quietly through its blowhole, just over your right shoulder. (Buses in London are much quieter than they are in New York.) A newspaper, The Independent, ran a race to Olympic Park between a bicycle, a car, the Underground and a riverboat. The bike won by a big margin. So far, I am enjoying the ride.

OPENING FROM AFAR

The U.S. Olympic women’s soccer team hasn’t attended an opening ceremony in 12 years. It just takes too much time and energy to fly to the main host city from the remote venues where footie is played. So what to do? Gather in front of a television and dress as if you were there. “We’re going to feel the spirit,” goalkeeper Hope Solo said. “Everyone’s talking about dressing up in our opening ceremony outfits — and not shipping them home until the following day.”

FEDERER’S FLAW

Roger Federer has been holding court, and he delivered up a secret: He can’t play tennis “at all” with his left hand. Other tidbits from the winner of 17 tennis majors at an entertaining news conference: • He is not a huge autograph hunter. • He is looking forward to chatting with other Olympians — “It doesn’t matter if they are famous or not.” • And he is in two minds about being able to wear colored kit at Wimbledon, where the usual etiquette requiring that players wear white is relaxed for the Olympics. “I feel a bit awkward playing in a red shirt out at Wimbledon,” he said. “But I don’t dislike it.” Federer, 31 next month, wouldn’t rule out another Olympic appearance — it would be his fifth — at the Rio de Janeiro Games in 2016. “There’s definitely a chance,” he said.

CONFIDENT SOUTH AFRICA

FIT AT 40

There are always a handful of athletes at the Olympics trying to win one for the aged, and Chris Horner is “that guy” for the U.S. men’s road cycling team. Horner, who will turn 41 in October, gives off a grandfatherly vibe surrounded by 20-something teammates Tejay van Garderen, Taylor Phinney, Tyler Farrar and Timmy Duggan. Horner turned professional in 1995, but failed to make the U.S. team for the next four Summer Olympics. He figured that London was his final shot, and was nearly overcome with emotion when USA Cycling announced he had made the five-man team for Saturday’s road race. “Your whole life, you’re always trying to get on the Olympic team,” Horner said from the team’s training base in the Surrey countryside.

I’m standing in line with a bunch of media members waiting to get cleared through security when two men come hurrying in to the back of the line. Dressed in Serbia gear and clearly in a rush to get somewhere, they try to ask the security personnel to expedite the process for them. Not happening. They have to stand in line like everyone else. As I get through the screening, I turn to see who is there. It’s Novak Djokvic, only one of the three best tennis players in the world. His watch sets off the alarm, but he rushes out before I have a chance to ask what in the heck he’s doing there

DOPING TEST OVER, FINALLY

Remember the problems two fasting Moroccans were having to comply with the urine test that’s part of doping checks here? It took two and a half hours, but they’ve managed it. The team coach had said earlier that the two chosen players — who are observing the Muslim holy month of Ramadan — had found it “more or less impossible” because they hadn’t consumed anything since 2:30 a.m.

ALL ABOUT PHELPS

Michael Phelps is such an Olympic colossus that the US swim team press conference broke down this way: A half hour of questions and answers with Phelps, then a half hour with the rest of the team. Does this reinforce the idea that Phelps is somehow separate from his teammates? Teammate Natalie Coughlin likes it this way. “We used to do all the press conferences together and would just sit here daydreaming” while Phelps fielded all the questions.

Rochus, whose career-high ranking was No. 24 in 2005, says his ambition as a child was “to be tall.” At 6 feet 10 inches (2.08 meters), Ivo Karlovic of Croatia is the tallest man on the tour.

BRAZILIAN PARTY

Hundreds of Brazilian fans are taking over St. Mary Street in Cardiff, Wales, ahead of the team’s opening match against Egypt in the men’s football tournament. Making a lot of noise and dancing to loud music, the Brazilians are bringing some life to what normally would be a calm city center on a Thursday afternoon. Smaller groups of Egyptian supporters were also on hand, peacefully engaging with the Brazilians ahead of the Group C match at the nearby Millennium Stadium. The gathering of fans is one of the few signs of changes brought on by the Olympics to Cardiff, located some 150 miles (250 kilometers) from all the action in London.

WHEN IN LONDON ...

U.S. gymnast Gabby Douglas joked after making the Olympic team she hoped to “catch an accent” when she arrived in London. Douglas doesn’t quite have the hang of it yet, but her teammates are picking it up quickly. Aly Raisman put on a show for reporters shortly after the U.S. completed podium training on Thursday, putting the proper lilt on “absolutely brilliant” and “Introducing the gymnasts” (with the emphasis on the second syllable of gymnast). How good was it? Even a member of the Olympic Broadcast System (a Brit) applauded.

WELCOME TO NODNOL?

Call that a welcome? A sprawling shopping mall next to London’s Olympic Park has been forced to alter signs greeting Arabic-speaking visitors, after a campaign group pointed out that the message was almost unreadable. Westfield Stratford, which has more than 260 stores and is located right next to

the main Olympic venues, has confirmed it is replacing banners put in place to welcome Olympic visitors after it was contacted by the Council for Arab-British understanding. The council said signs that were supposed to say “Welcome to London” in Arabic were instead written backwards and did not have the letters joined up, leaving the message virtually indecipherable. Chris Doyle, the council’s director, says the banner has taken a simple message and “jumbled it up and separated the letters — what you got was a load of gibberish.”

OLDER MEDALS

The British Museum is a huge draw for tourists, and the medal display is very timely. The exhibit features actual medals awarded, including one for the pentathlon in the 1873 Wenlock Olympian Games, and artist renderings of this year’s medals.

DONATION T:6.75"MAJOR Nearly 2,000 Moroccan kids are benefitting from a

decision by British rower Mohamed Sbihi not to fast during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan in order to pursue his Olympic dream. Sbihi, who is part of the men’s eight at the London Games, felt he wouldn’t be able to maintain his competitive edge if he abstained from food and drink from dawn to dusk during Ramadan, which began last Friday. So, as a compromise, he is instead digging deep into his pocket and paying to feed 1,800 people via an Englishbased charity — Walou 4 Us — that works with kids in Morocco. “It’s written in the Quran that those unable to fast have to feed 60 people or fast for 30 days for every day they miss intentionally,” Sbihi said. “So, it worked out 1,800 people or 5 years’ fasting. I’m very fortunate that I have funds to pay and make the donation. I made the donation about a month and a half ago.”

TOO LATE TO SWITCH SPORTS?

American track star Lolo Jones hasn’t been able to hurdle the heat so far. Tweet: “No air conditioners. It’s HOT in the rooms. No need to practice. Just lay in ur bed and sweat. Where r the applications for Winter Olympics???”

SING ALONG WITH PAUL

Londoners have been careful not to leak too many secrets about Friday’s opening ceremony, but some have slipped out anyway. With thousands taking part in dress rehearsals being held at night, it’s been difficult to keep all the juicy details under wraps. And while it’s been impossible to see what’s going on inside Olympic Stadium, there have been clues floating in the air all week. “I’ve heard Paul McCartney do ’Hey Jude’ twice,” said a bartender on Euston St. “At least it sounded like him.”

Goodbye bogus. Hello bonus.

WRESTLING GOLD?

U.S. women’s wrestling coach Terry Steiner is hopeful that the growth of the sport domestically will lead to the country’s first gold medal. Steiner said that in 2002, two years before women’s wrestling made its debut at the Athens Games, just five American colleges offered women’s wrestling. That number currently stands at 21, and Steiner said girls’ wrestling is also the fastestgrowing sport at the high school level in the U.S. The Americans have a pair of two-time Olympians in Clarissa Chun at 48 kilograms and Ali Bernard at 72 kg. Both reached bronze medal matches before falling in Beijing and are considered legitimate medal contenders “Our goals are very simple. We’ve got four athletes and we’d like to leave here with four medals. And I think we have the athletes that can perform and have performed at a high level,” Steiner said.

If South Arican athletes don’t perform at these Olympics, they can’t blame the food or the accommodation. Minister of Sport Fikile Mbalula has visited London’s athletes village and pronounced it good. “I have seen the village, have tasted part of their meal and they told me that it is better than Beijing,” Mbalula said at a welcome reception for the national team. “I have seen where they sleep, they told me they are content.” Sports officials have set the team a goal of 12 medals — and Mbalula ended a characteristically fiery pep talk with: “Let’s go to war!”

WHERE’S ROGER?

Roger Federer has an endorsement contract with Rolex. That doesn’t mean he’s on time. The Swiss player, who returned to No. 1 in the world again after winning his seventh Wimbledon earlier this month, was to meet with media at 5:30 p.m. but at about that time it was announced he would be 30 minutes late. Federer, with 17 Grand Slams, won a gold medal in doubles in 2008 with fellow countryman Stan Wawrinki. He’ll be back at Wimbledon to try to win gold in singles, and his chances improved when Spain’s Rafael Nadal pulled out due to injury.

TALL AND SMALL

A tower of men’s tennis will face, or rather peer down at, the tour’s smallest player in first-round action at the Olympics. No. 11 seed John Isner of the United States is matched against Olivier Rochus of Belgium in a draw that was announced Thursday at Wimbledon. Isner is 6 feet 9 inches (2.06 meters) tall, and his opponent is 5 feet 6 inches (1.68 meters) tall. Last year, Isner defeated Rochus to win the title at Newport in the United States. The Association of Tennis Professionals described it as the “biggestever height differential” in a tour final. The ATP biography for
