Church dealing with crash aftermath GOOD MORNING Local business giving away backpacks AUBURN – A local wireless retailer will give away backpacks packed with school supplies as part of a national campaign. The Cellular Connection, 1047 Smaltz Way, Auburn, will give away 100-150 backpacks, each filled with pencils, paper, a pencil box, folders, glue and more, as part of the company’s nationwide campaign, the School Rocks Backpack Giveaway.

Leftover backpacks will be donated to local schools, the company said. The School Rocks Backpack Giveaway campaign will give away 60,000 backpacks stuffed with school supplies at more than 400 The Cellular Connection locations, the company announced. The campaign is funded through customers of the retailer who opt to round their purchases up to the nearest dollar, with the difference funneled to the School Rocks Backpack Giveaway. “TCC is doing its part to ensure that as many children as possible are set up for educational success,” the company said.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indianapolis church mourned their youth pastor, his pregnant wife and a congregation member Sunday after the three died when their bus returning from a northern Michigan camp overturned a mile from home. Saturday’s accident devastated members of Colonial Hills Baptist Church, who had been anticipating a joyful homecoming with the 37 people aboard the bus. The crash

killed youth pastor Chad Phelps; his pregnant piano-teacher wife, Courtney Phelps; and chaperone Tonya Weindorf, deacon Jeff Leffew said. The crash, which happened Saturday afternoon near Interstate 465, injured dozens. Seven teens remained hospitalized Sunday, including one in critical condition. Bus driver Dennis Maurer, a 68-year-old member of the congregation, told authorities that the

brakes failed before the churchowned vehicle struck a raised concrete median and flipped on its side, Indianapolis metro police said. Chad Phelps, the son of the church’s senior pastor, and his wife were both in their mid-20s, Leffew said, and were expecting their second child next month. Chad Phelps had become youth pastor at Colonial Hills late last year, he said.

” … We’re going to have a long road, but God is good,” Leffew said Sunday during a news conference. The Phelpses’ first child, Chase, nearly 2 years old, was among the injured. He was treated and released from a hospital Saturday, IU Health spokeswoman Sally Winter said. Authorities are still investigating the crash. The bus was nearly finished with a 365-mile SEE INDY, PAGE A6

Ex-Congresswoman Boggs dies at 97

Kendallville’s Kramer followed dad’s baseball success

WASHINGTON (AP) — Lindy Boggs, a Democratic Party leader from Louisiana, died July 27 at her home in Chevy Chase. She was 97. Boggs’ charm and political acumen helped her husband, Hale Boggs, rise to U.S. House majority leader, and who launched her own congressional and diplomatic career after his disappearance in an airplane crash, The death was confirmed by a daughter, broadcast journalist Cokie Roberts, who said the cause of death was not immediately known. Politics was central to Lindy Boggs’s life long before she won a special election in 1973 to succeed her late husband.


KENDALLVILLE — Walk down into Steve Kramer’s basement, and you’ll see a sign that says “Man Cave.” There is the requisite big-screen TV and couch, and sports memorabilia on the walls. But Kramer’s sports collection is more than a show of support for his favorite teams — it’s a tribute to his father, Norm. Born in Tell City in southern Indiana in 1924, Norm Kramer excelled in basketball and baseball at that city’s high school before he headed off to serve in World War II. “His brothers were already in the war, and he wanted to join them,” Steve said. When the war ended, Norm signed a contract with baseball’s St. Louis Browns. He pitched for several minor-league teams, including the Durham (N.C.) Bulls



of “Bull Durham” fame, before arm injuries ended his career in 1951. With only 16 major-league teams at the time, many of the minor-league teams were comparable to today’s major-league teams, Steve said. “My dad always said that he was born 50 years too soon. The competition was a lot harder, and fewer players made the big leagues,” Steve said. In the off-seasons Norm had attended Butler University, playing basketball for the Bulldogs. Eventually he began a career in teaching and coaching both baseball and basketball. Norm was coaching baseball

at Southwestern High School in Shelbyville when legendary scout Tony Lucadello of the Philadelphia Phillies asked him if he would be interested in working as a scout. “Tony knew he had played professional baseball and thought that would be an advantage with scouting,” Steve said. Norm began scouting for the Phillies in 1961 while continuing to teach and coach. Steve said SEE KRAMER, PAGE A6

JERUSALEM (AP) — The U.S. on Sunday announced the resumption of Israeli-Palestinian talks following years of stalemate, after Israel’s Cabinet agreed to release 104 Palestinian prisoners convicted of deadly attacks. The return to direct contacts between the sides gave U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry his first concrete achievement after months of shuttle diplomacy. The U.S. said preliminary talks would begin today, but it remains unclear whether they will lead to a formal resumption of peace talks that broke down in 2008. Despite a return to the table, neither side appeared upbeat. Each has blamed the other for the lack of success in 20 years of negotiations interrupted by bouts of violence. Earlier Sunday, the Israeli Cabinet voted 13-7, with two abstentions, to approve in principle the release of 104 Palestinian prisoners. The release is a key part of the Kerry-brokered deal to restart peace talks. The State Department said Kerry called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas after the Cabinet vote and invited them to send teams to Washington. State Department spokeswoman Jan Psaki said the teams would meet today and Tuesday to “develop a procedural plan for how the parties can proceed with the negotiations in the coming months.” Talks on a final peace deal are to last six to nine months. Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat and Abbas aide Mohammed Shtayyeh will represent the Palestinians, and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and adviser Yitzhak Molcho will attend for Israel.

Many ankle bracelet alarms go unchecked BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Three decades after they were introduced as a crime-fighting tool, electronic ankle bracelets used to track an offender’s whereabouts have proliferated so much that officials are struggling to handle an avalanche of monitoring alerts that are often nothing more sinister than a dead battery, lost satellite contact or someone arriving home late from work. Amid all that white noise, alarms are going unchecked, sometimes on defendants now accused of new crimes. Some agencies don’t have clear protocols on how to handle the multitude of alerts, or don’t always follow them. At times, officials took days to act, if they noticed at all, when criminals tampered with their bracelets or broke a curfew. “I think the perception … is that these people are being watched 24 hours a day by someone in a command center. That’s just not happening,” said Rob Bains, director of court services for Florida’s Ninth

A look at electronic monitoring in Indiana


Deputy Edward Schinkal attaches an electronic monitoring unit to a woman who was sentenced to home incarceration, in Cincinnati. At least 100,000 sex offenders, parolees and people free on bail or probation now wear ankle bracelets that can sound an alarm if they leave home without permission, fail to show up for work or linger near a playground or school.

Judicial Circuit Court, which this spring halted its monitoring

programs after two people on the devices were accused in separate SEE ALARMS, PAGE A6

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — THE OFFENDERS: Electronic monitoring in Indiana is used primarily to track sex offenders who are on parole, according to the Department of Correction. In addition to the state agency, other entities across the state also provide electronic monitoring of offenders, including county probation departments. This sampling included the state agency alone. THE NUMBERS: The state had 299 paroled sex offenders on GPS monitoring across the state in April. Those offenders triggered 618 alerts for actions such as tampering with the device, entering excluded areas or being out of cell range. Of those, 147 alerts were resolved SEE INDIANA, PAGE A6

Accidental overdoses rising LAFAYETTE (AP) — An increase in the number of deaths from accidental drug overdoses has sparked concerns that substance abuse has reached a crisis level in Tippecanoe County. The Journal & Courier reports the number of accidental, drug-related deaths has risen each year since 2010. Currently, one or two people in the county are dying each week from accidental overdoses. “It’s not just younger people we’re seeing. It’s crossing all ages, all socioeconomic groups. Prescription medication and street drugs,” coroner Donna Avolt said. “We’re seeing this so much more


than we should. We are no longer a smaller community immune to big-city woes.” Avolt said many of the cases involve people who’ve combined street drugs with prescription medication to intensify their high or those who suffer chronic medical conditions and take more of their prescribed medication than they should because their pain hasn’t lessened or they’ve forgotten about their previous dose. The increase has forced her to request an additional $30,000 from the Tippecanoe County Council to cover the costs of medical services such as toxicology analysis and

autopsies. Both are required under Indiana law in cases of suspected overdoses. Lafayette police Lt. Brad Bishop, who oversees the Tippecanoe County Drug Task Force, said heroin is causing a lot of issues. He said the drug coming into the county is a more pure form than in years past and that people are combining it with “just about everything.” The drug first raised alarms in Tippecanoe County in February 2011, when it was found at the scene of three unrelated drug overdoses that occurred within 24 hours. Two men died, and one woman was hospitalized.

ALBION — A Waterloo man was booked into the Noble County Jail Saturday, the Noble County Sheriff’s Department said. Tyson Davidson, 26, of the 400 block of South Wayne Street, Waterloo, was charged with operating while intoxicated with a previous conviction.

Columbus police spokesman Lt. Matt Myers says Dennis King has told them the plane was slowing down but the engine was racing at the time of the crash Thursday. Myers told The Republic for a story Sunday that investigators were able to interview King in an Indianapolis hospital. The 60-year-old Columbus man remained in fair condition Sunday in the burn unit at Wishard Memorial Hospital. A spokeswoman says 81-yearold pilot Gerald Clayton of Columbus remains in serious condition there. Myers says investigators haven’t been able to talk with Clayton yet because of the extent of his injuries.

Wildflowers of summer add color to landscape The wildflowers of summer are out, the flowers that bloom when the days are long and hot, that bloom in weedy fields and along the sides of roads before they are mowed, out where there is no shade and sunshine beats down. Queen Anne’s lace spreads lacy white flower on the tops of a tall stalk. Chicory opens daisy-like blossoms of blue. Evening primrose displays flowers of yellow on club-like columns. Wild bergamot has floppy flowers of lavender, day-lily has large, spreading flowers of orange, and Canada thistle has small blossoms of purple. on OUTDOOR Low, the ground NOTES where it is not overshadowed by Neil Case taller plants, birdfoot trefoil spreads a mat of green leaves dotted with small, bright yellow flowers. Many people, perhaps most, pay no more attention to these flowers of the fields and roadsides than they do to the fields of corn and soybeans they speed past. If any of these flowers happen to grow in their lawns and get tall enough to be noticed before they are mowed with the grass, most people call them weeds and pull them, grub them out or spray them with a pesticide. We have our lawn mowed, and we pull wildflowers in our flower beds and call them weeds, but we don’t use chemicals nor allow them to be used on our property. Lately, I’ve been pulling Canada thistles that grew in a dense patch at the edge of the area we have mowed. I started to cut them using a scythe,



An evening primrose.

but that was hard, hot work, and I switched to pulling while sitting on a camp stool ,which is much easier than swinging a scythe. Even so, I limited my attack on the thistles to once a day, an hour at a time, and I finished just as the remaining plants were beginning to go to seed. In the house after one of my skirmishes with the thistles, I read about some of the wildflowers of summer. Canada thistle, I read, is not a native plant of Canada in spite of its name. It’s a native plant of Europe. It was introduced to Canada, accidentally I presume, though I didn’t read that it was accidental. But would a plant that is called cursed thistle in England be introduced to the U.S. on purpose? Once established in Canada, it spread west across Canada and south into the U.S. Queen Anne’s lace and chicory are also not native to the U.S. They were introduced deliberately. The roots of Queen Anne’s lace are carrot-like and edible, and the plant is also known as wild carrot. Brought to the U.S. from England, it was grown in the gardens of some American pioneers. The root of chicory, which I learned to identify

All YOUR local events

under the name corn flower, is also edible, or drinkable, and aromatic. It’s roots were not eaten whole, but were ground, roasted and used as a substitute for coffee. Birdfoot trefoil and day-lily are other non-native species. Widespread and common in the British Isles, birdfoot trefoil is known by many different names including bird’s-claw, devil’s-fingers and witch’s toenails. Day-lily is one of a number of lilies with large, orange blossoms. There is Canada lily, turk’s-cap lily, tiger lily, Michigan lily, Gray’s lily and wood lily. Tiger lily is introduced, but the others are native to the U.S. Evening primrose is a native species. The roots are edible and are described as wholesome, nutritious and tasty. They were also once considered to be of medicinal value and were used to treat eczema, asthma, migraines, inflammation, arthritis and alcoholism. There are some of the wildflowers of summer, the blossoms of weedy fields and roadsides. Some of them, the wildflowers that are the most common, the most conspicuous, with a bit of information that I gleaned from books.

M033-33107-00102 The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) has received an application from MetalX,

LLC located at 295 S. Commerce Drive, Waterloo, IN, 46793 for a New Source Construction and MSOP. If approved by IDEM's Office of Air Quality (OAQ), this proposed permit would allow MetalX, LLC to construct and operate new emission units at an existing stationary scrap metal shredding and separation source. The applicant intends to construct and operate new equipment that will emit air pollutants; therefore, the permit contains new or different permit conditions. In addition, some conditions from previously issued permits/approvals have been corrected, changed or removed. These corrections, changes, and removals may include Title I changes (ex changes that add or modify synthetic minor emission limits). IDEM has reviewed this application, and has developed preliminary findings, consisting of a draft permit and several supporting documents, that would allow the applicant to make this change. IDEM is aware that the one (1) vehicle/metal Wendt Shredder and some of the units comprising the one (1) scrap metal separation line, identified as Model 60, have been constructed and operated prior to receipt of the proper permit. IDEM is reviewing this matter and will take appropriate action. This draft New Source Construction and MSOP contains provisions to bring unpermitted equipment into compliance with construction and operation permit rules. A copy of the permit application and IDEM's preliminary findings are available at: Waterloo Grant Township Public Library, 300 South Wayne Street, Waterloo, IN 46793 and Northern Regional Office, 300 N. Michigan Street, Suite 450, South Bend, IN 46601-1295 A copy of the preliminary findings is available on the Internet at: How can you participate in this process?

If the 30th day of the comment period falls on a day when IDEM offices are closed for business, all comments must be postmarked or delivered in person on the next business day that IDEM is open. You may request that IDEM hold a public hearing about this draft permit. If adverse comments concerning the air pollution impact of this draft permit are received, with a request for a public hearing, IDEM will decide whether or not to hold a public hearing. IDEM could also decide to hold

a public meeting instead of, or in addition to, a public hearing. If a public hearing or meeting is held, IDEM will make a separate announcement of the date, time, and location of that hearing or meeting. At a hearing, you would have an opportunity to submit written comments and make verbal comments.

Declining economic security Figures show hardship is particularly on the rise among whites WASHINGTON (AP) — Four out of 5 U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream. Survey data exclusive to The Associated Press points to an increasingly globalized U.S. economy, the widening gap between rich and poor and loss of good-paying manufacturing jobs as reasons for the trend. The findings come as President Barack Obama tries to renew his administration’s emphasis on the economy, saying in recent speeches that his highest priority is to “rebuild ladders of opportunity” and reverse income inequality. Hardship is particularly on the rise among whites, based on several measures. Pessimism among that racial group about their families’ economic futures has climbed to the highest point since at least 1987. In the most recent AP-GfK poll, 63 percent of whites called the economy “poor.” “I think it’s going to get worse,” said Irene Salyers, 52, of Buchanan County, Va., a declining coal region in Appalachia. Married and divorced three times, Salyers now helps run a fruit and vegetable stand with her boyfriend, but it doesn’t generate much income. They live mostly off government disability checks. “If you do try to go apply for a job, they’re not hiring people, and they’re not paying that much to even go to work,” she said. Children,

Four out of five U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and a vanishing American

she said, have “nothing better to do than to get on drugs.” While racial and ethnic minorities are more likely to live in poverty, race disparities in the poverty rate have narrowed substantially since the 1970s, census data show. Economic insecurity among whites also is more pervasive than is shown in government data, engulfing more than 76 percent of white adults by the time they turn 60, according to a new economic gauge being published next year by the Oxford University Press. The gauge defines

Driver of derailed train questioned SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, Spain (AP) — The driver of a Spanish train that derailed at high speed was being questioned by a judge on Sunday as officials tried to determine if he was responsible for the accident, which killed 79 people. Francisco Jose Garzon Amo, 52, has been held by police on suspicion of negligent homicide. He has not been formally charged by a magistrate or made any official statements. However, minutes after the crash Garzon said that he had been going fast and couldn’t brake, a local resident who rushed to the scene of the accident said in an interview broadcast Sunday. The resident, Evaristo Iglesias, said he and another person accompanied the blood-soaked Garzon to flat ground where other injured people were being laid

out, waiting for emergency services to arrive. “He told us that he wanted to die,” Iglesias told Antena 3 television. “He said he had needed to brake but couldn’t,” Iglesias said. He added that Garzon said “he had been going fast.” The train carrying 218 passenger in eight cars hurtled far over the 80-kph (50-mph) speed limit into a high-risk curve on Wednesday, tumbling off the tracks and slamming into a concrete wall, with some of the cars catching fire. The Spanish rail agency has said the brakes should have been applied four kilometers (2.5 miles) before the train hit the curve. On Sunday, Garzon was moved from the police station in the northwestern Spanish town of Santiago de Compostela, near where the accident occurred, to its courthouse just as the deadline of his 72 hours of

detention was to expire. Luis Alaez, the investigative judge, was to question the driver in private and was not expected to comment about it afterward. The judge also was to have access to the information contained in the train’s “black box,” which is similar to those found on aircraft, officials said. Investigators must determine if Garzon failed to apply the brakes or whether it was a technical failure. Previously Garzon had exercised his right to remain silent when police tried to interview him, officials said. Spain’s state-run train company has described him as an experience driver who knew the route well. In its report about the accident, Antena 3 television showed a photograph of Iglesias in a pink shirt and cap helping to carry

the driver after the train accident. The station also aired television footage of Iglesias working beside the wrecked train to help other survivors. In the interview, Iglesias recalled Garzon’s words, “‘I don’t want to see this, I want to die,’ that’s what he said repeatedly,” said Iglesias. “‘I had to brake down to 80 and couldn’t,’” Iglesias quoted the driver as saying. On Sunday, the death toll from the train derailment rose to 79 when an injured passenger died at University Hospital in Santiago de Compostela, officials said. She was identified as American Myrta Fariza of Houston, her family said in a statement. Fariza’s friends and family had created a Facebook page while she was hospitalized titled “Hope for Myrta,” where they collected donations and communicated.

Dream. Hardship is particularly on the rise among whites, based on several measures. Pessimism among that racial group about their families’ economic futures has climbed to the highest point since at least 1987. In the most recent AP-GfK poll, 63 percent of whites called the economy “poor.”

“economic insecurity” as experiencing unemployment at some point in their working lives, or a year or more of reliance on government aid such as food stamps or income below 150 percent of the poverty line. Measured across all races, the risk of economic insecurity rises to 79 percent. “It’s time that America comes to understand that many of the nation’s biggest disparities, from education and life expectancy to poverty, are increasingly due to economic class

position,” said William Julius Wilson, a Harvard professor who specializes in race and poverty. He noted that despite continuing economic difficulties, minorities have more optimism about the future after Obama’s election, while struggling whites do not. “There is the real possibility that white alienation will increase if steps are not taken to highlight and address inequality on a broad front,” Wilson said.

McCain’s Vietnam cellmate dies at 88 MIAMI (AP) — Retired Col. George “Bud” Day, a Medal of Honor recipient who spent 5½ years as a POW in Vietnam and was Arizona Sen. John McCain’s cellmate, has died at the age of 88, his widow said Sunday. Day, one of the nation’s most highly decorated servicemen since Gen. Douglas MacArthur and later a tireless advocate for veterans’ rights, died Saturday surrounded by family at his home in Shalimar, after a long illness, Doris Day said. “He would have died in my arms if I could have picked him up,” she said. Day received the Medal of Honor for escaping his captors for 10 days after the aircraft he was piloting was shot down over North Vietnam. In all, he earned more than 70 medals during service in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. He was an enlisted Marine serving in the Pacific during World War II and an Air Force pilot in the Korean and Vietnam wars. In Vietnam, he was McCain’s cellmate at one camp known as the Plantation and later in the infamous Hanoi Hilton, where he was often the highest-ranking captive. During his imprisonment, the once-muscular, 5-foot-9 Day was hung by his arms for days, tearing them from their sockets. He was freed in 1973 — a skeletal figure of the once dashing fighter pilot. His hands and arms never functioned properly again.

Weindorf, 51, had five children, Leffew said. “Tonya was at camp because she has a specialneeds child who wanted to go, and she wanted to go and make it a good week, and according to her husband, it was a great week, and that’s who Tonya was,� Leffew said. Leffew, 44, of Fishers, had sent four daughters to Camp CoBeAc, near Prudenville, Mich. Only one daughter was on the bus that pulled into the parking lot, and he raced to the crash site in northern Indianapolis. What he found was surreal — clothing and other items strewn about and windows missing from the bus. “You’re just praying that it’s not as bad as it looks,� he said Saturday. His daughters escaped with just bumps and bruises. Indianapolis Public Safety Director Troy Riggs called the crash a “great


Firefighters work to extricate people from a bus crash Saturday in Indianapolis. The Indianapolis Fire Department says three people were killed when a bus carrying teens from a church camp crashed on a busy thoroughfare near Interstate 465. The bus was carrying 40 passengers who are members of Colonial Hill Baptist Church and were returning from camp when the crash happened Saturday afternoon.

tragedy.â€? “They were not that far from home. ‌ That only adds to the tragedy,â€? Riggs said Saturday. Witness Duane Lloyd told WTHR on Saturday that he heard a loud noise behind him as he was traveling near the intersection and saw the crash around 4:15 p.m. — about the time Chad Phelps had tweeted that the group would arrive at the church. “I heard a skid. I looked

I see this bus in the air and people falling out of the bus,� Lloyd said. “I could have gone my whole life without seeing that.� He said people approached and tried to help. “People were literally trying to lift the bus,� Lloyd said. “You just try to do what you can do.� Three teenagers were still at IU Health Methodist Hospital, Winter said Sunday.

shootings. At least 100,000 sex offenders, parolees and people free on bail or probation wear ankle bracelets that can sound an alarm if they leave home without permission, fail to show up for work or linger near a playground or school. To assess these monitoring programs, The Associated Press queried a sample of corrections, parole and probation agencies across the U.S. for alarms logged in a one-month period and for figures regarding the number of people monitored and the number of officers watching them. The AP also reviewed audits, state and federal reports and studies done of

several of these programs, which detailed problems that included officers failing to investigate alarms or take action when offenders racked up multiple violations. Twenty-one agencies that responded to the AP inquiry logged 256,408 alarms for 26,343 offenders in the month of April alone. It adds up for those doing the monitoring. The 230 parole officers with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice handled 944 alerts per day in April. The Delaware Department of Correction, which has 31 field officers, handled 514 alarms per day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we first introduced this technology â&#x20AC;Ś officers thought they were just going to go play golf for the day,â&#x20AC;? said Jock Waldo, a spokesman for Boulder, Colo.-based BI Inc., which produces about half the bracelets used in the U.S. However, the devices require scrutiny of the vast amount of data they produce, Waldo said. Sorting through alerts, and deciding which are serious enough to merit a rapid response, can be fraught with peril. In Syracuse, N.Y., federal probation agents wary of alarms caused by things such as lost satellite signals asked a monitoring company to contact them only if an alert lasted more than five minutes. Agents tracking child-porn suspect David Renz then missed 46 alerts in nine weeks, including one generated when he removed his bracelet in March. He then raped a 10-year-old girl and killed her mother. Renz pleaded guilty to those charges July 17. Corrections officials in Orange County, Fla., were so inundated with alerts that they halted all real-time notifications except when people tried to remove their bracelets. That allowed

Bessman Okafor, awaiting trial for a home invasion, to violate his curfew 53 times in a single month without any action being taken. During one of those outings last September, prosecutors say, Okafor shot three people, killing a 19-yearold man who was to testify against him. In Colorado â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 212 parole officers handle an average of 15,000 alerts a month â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one officer took five days to check on the whereabouts of a paroled white supremacist after getting an alert that he had tampered with his bracelet. By the time officers issued an arrest warrant, the man had killed two people, authorities say, including the head of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Corrections and Nathan Leon, a computer technician and pizza delivery driver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hurt as much now as I did four months ago,â&#x20AC;? Leonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, John Leon, said last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Technology is not going to automatically issue warrants for people. It just sends an alarm that says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This thingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been cut.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And for people to ignore it, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the point?â&#x20AC;? Supporters of electronic monitoring say such tragedies are the exception and that the devices are a valuable tool for authorities who previously relied only on shoe leather and the telephone to keep tabs on released prisoners. In many cases involving violence by people on trackers, the accused likely would have been free on bail or parole even if electronic monitoring didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist, and would have been far harder to monitor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one should think this is going to be 100 percent effective,â&#x20AC;? said George Runner, a former California legislator who wrote that stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voter-approved law requiring bracelets for all paroled sex offenders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a tool.â&#x20AC;?

AP Auto Racing Writer Eds: Updates with new lead. With AP Photos. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A born and bred Hoosier, Ryan Newman spent his childhood racing everywhere from Anderson to Winchester and every short track he could find in a state mad about racing. He graduated from Purdue and landed a summer job working in Jeff Gordon’s old race shop in Pittsboro. One of the perks? He got to live in the shop and sleep alongside the cars. And like many Indiana kids, he revered Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the track he first visited in 1986 and later accidentally stumbled upon NASCAR’s inaugural 1992 test while out buying tires with his mother. A win at the famed Brickyard? That would be a dream come true for the South Bend native. Newman made the boyhood dream a cool reality, taking the checkered flag Sunday to end a 49-race winless streak in front of his home state fans. His parents, who fueled his love of racing and took him to the 500 as a kid, joined him for his biggest win in Indiana. Newman was as cool

and collected in Victory Lane as he was on the track when he held off Jimmie Johnson. There were no tears, no quiver in his voice and no need to collect himself as Newman was strangely stoic. “I don’t show a lot of emotion, I think everybody knows that,” said Newman, who likened the victory to his 2008 win at the Daytona 500. “I had the same emotion, the same thankfulness I did when I won the Daytona 500 because I feel everybody that has been a part of my racing career — from people that bought my racing uniform, bought me a right rear tire, given us a credit card to get to some race track at some point in my career — those are the people that helped me get to where I am today. “To me, it’s awesome to be here at Indy. It’s awesome because it’s my home state. I’ve raced go karts at pretty much every go kart track around here, been kicked out of half of them. Those are the things that make it special. I think about those things more than I carry the emotion on my cheeks.” So the emotion was seen in father Greg, who spotted for Newman on SEE BRICKYARD, PAGE B2

U.S. claims Tigers keep Phils down Gold Cup

Senior British Open playoff goes on today

On The Air •

Hoosier kisses the bricks

Briefly • SOUTHPORT, England (AP) — Bernhard Langer and Mark Wiebe were tied after two playoff holes Sunday night in the storm-delayed Senior British Open when darkness suspended play at Royal Birkdale. They will finish the playoff this morning. Wiebe shot a 4-under 66 to match Langer at 9-under 271. Langer had a 70. They each parred the par-4 18th twice in the playoff. “Playing in the dark was a new one for me,” Wiebe said. “Hopefully, we’ll figure it out tomorrow.” Langer blew a two-stroke lead with a double bogey on the final hole of regulation after hitting into a greenside bunker. Minutes earlier, Wiebe’s birdie putt at No. 18 came up short. “I gave it away,” Langer said. “I could bogey the last hole and win. I thought I hit a decent shot in the bunker, but it came out too low. “But I made two good pars in the playoff in the dark, so what can you say. I’m sorry to keep you all hanging round tomorrow.” Corey Pavin, Peter Senior and David Frost tied for third at 6 under. Pavin shot a 65, Senior had 66, and Frost a 70. Langer seemed in control most of the afternoon, making the turn in 2-under 32 and picking up another birdie at the 12th. But he dropped a shot at the 14th, before needing two shots to get out of the bunker and two putts on the green at the last. Wiebe made five birdies and one bogey in his round. In the first hole of the playoff, Wiebe two-putted from just off the green. Langer did the same from 4 feet closer. They were offered the chance by tournament referee Andy McFeeto to call it a day, but opted to try again. With the clubhouse lights trying to brighten the gloom, the players were driven back to the tee.




United States DaMarcus Beasley holds the trophy as he celebrates with teammates after defeating Panama 1-0 during the CONCACAF Gold Cup final soccer match at Soldier Field on Sunday in Chicago.

CHICAGO (AP) — It took Brek Shea less than a minute to give the United States a goal. And the Gold Cup title. Shea scored 42 seconds after coming into the game as a substitute, and his goal in the 69th minute gave the United States a 1-0 victory over Panama in the CONCACAF Gold Cup final. It is the fifth Gold Cup title for the U.S., but it’s first since 2007. The victory also extended the Americans’ winning streak to a record 11 games, four more than their previous best. When the final whistle sounded, the Americans on the bench raced onto the field to join their teammates. Several players jumped up and down, and hugs and high-fives were exchanged. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who

watched the game from a luxury box after being suspended for his tirade over the officiating in the semifinal, quickly made his way down to the field, pumping his fists in the air as he walked. The Panamians, meanwhile, could only watch in disappointment. They came into the game full of confidence after beating Mexico twice during the tournament, but never really threatened the United States. The only downer on the day for the Americans was another injury to Stuart Holden’s right knee. He collapsed to the ground after colliding with another player in the first half and grabbed at his right knee. He was able to walk off the field on his own, but U.S. Soccer later said he had sprained the knee and it would need further evaluation.

DETROIT (AP) — By the time Jhonny Peralta broke the game open with a sixth-inning grand slam, the Detroit Tigers were already well on their way to another victory. For that, they could thank the Philadelphia Phillies, whose eighth straight loss might have been the ugliest of the bunch. Peralta’s slam capped an eight-run sixth for Detroit, and the Tigers overcame Miguel Cabrera’s ejection in a 12-4 win over the collapsing Phillies on Sunday. Cabrera was tossed while batting with the bases loaded in the third and manager Jim Leyland was ejected, too. Detroit still got plenty of additional chances against a Philadelphia team that all but handed the game away with errors and walks. “We got some benefits today,” Leyland said. “They struggled a little bit defensively, and a little bit throwing strikes.” In the sixth, the Tigers scored eight runs on only two hits. The Phillies made three errors and walked three batters in the inning. Rick Porcello (8-6) allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings to win his fourth straight start.

Kretzer wins PBA tourney at Angola Bowl By Ken Fillmore ANGOLA — Brian Kretzer won the Professional Bowlers Association’s Farmers State Bank/ Roto Grip Central/Midwest Open at Angola Bowl, defeating Huntington’s E.J. Tackett 213-179 Sunday afternoon. Kretzer was the No. 1 seed from the round-robin match play that began on Sunday morning and only had to bowl one match in the stepladder finals. He won $2,400 for winning the regional PBA event. Tackett was seeded third and won handily over Brad Miller in the first round (258-213) and over Chris Kliczinski in the semifinals (259-185). Tackett, the Central Region’s Player’s Invitational points leader, took home $1,250 for being the tournament runner-up. The championship match did not start well for either Tackett or Kretzer. They both knocked down six pins with the same four pins standing. Tackett only knocked two of those pins down to start the match, then Kretzer converted for a spare.

“We both left some things out there. I got a lucky break and (Tackett) had a bad break,” Kretzer said. “He did not bowl very well, but I was not spectacular.” Tackett said, “I thought I had a really good look the first two times and in practice. But sometimes you get it and sometimes you don’t. Brian was really good today and (Saturday).” Tackett had two open frames in his first four frames in Sunday’s final match. Kretzer marked in every frame, and only had an open frame after beginning the 10th frame with a strike. Kretzer had five strikes in the final. The lanes were not very oily on Sunday afternoon after plenty of professional bowling over the past two days. Thirty men participated in the tournament and bowled six games apiece on Saturday. The top 10 qualified for the round-robin play which began on Sunday morning. The top four bowlers from the round-robin qualified for the stepladder finals. The lane conditions Sunday afternoon favored Kretzer, a

Vanover leads NC to victory FROM STAFF REPORTS


State champion softball star Jenessa Hasty is a catcher and pitcher for the Oak Hill age 12-and-under all-star softball team that recently won an Indiana state championship. Oak Hill is made up of girls from Grant County and defeated Pioneer 8-0 in the state tournament championship game played at North Miami High School in Denver. Hasty is the granddaughter of Janet Grabill of Angola and the late Gordon Grabill and is the daughter of Rick and Jackie Hasty. Jackie (Grabill) Hasty is a Prairie Heights High School graduate. Jenessa Hasty batted fourth in the Oak Hill lineup and had a batting average of .450. She will be in seventh grade at Oak Hill Junior High next month and plays softball, volleyball and basketball for the school. Oak Hill’s 12U softball team was 18-1 prior to playing in a tournament in Noblesville this past weekend, and will also compete in the Blueberry Festival in September. Rick Hasty is one of three fathers coaching this state championship team, which had an escort of eight fire trucks take them to Oak Hill High School after the memorable victory over Pioneer.

ALBION — Noble County Wolfpack running back Alic Vanover ran roughshod over the Michigan Grizzlies to lead his team to a 33-18 victory Saturday night in semi-pro football. The contest was played at Central Noble High School in Albion and moved the Wolfpack to a 4-0 mark on the season. The Grizzlies are from the Great Midwest Football League while the Wolfpack play in the Interstate Football League. Vanover, who played his high school football at Fairfield, had touchdown runs of 67, 73, 97 and 20 yards on the night. And he ran for a score in each of the four quarters before taking a rest after his fourth-quarter TD. He ended up with 267 yards on the night, according to unofficial stats. The Grizzlies challenged the Wolfpack defense, which had given up just one touchdown in the first three games of the season. The Michigan team crossed the goal line three times but could never catch up with VanOver and the rest of the Noble County offense. Former West Noble standout Kyle Marsh played the entire game at quarterback for the Wolfpack, stepping in for Michael Knepper, who was under the weather. Marsh threw a seven-yard touchdown passed to another former Charger, Matt Rupright, late in the fourth quarter to seal the win for the local team. Saturday, the Wolfpack travels to Bloomington to play the Indiana Cutters in an IFL game. On Aug. 10, the team plays at East Noble High School in Kendallville against the Battle Creek Blaze. That game is a fundraiser for the fight against breast cancer with special events planned, along with T-shirts and jerseys. Noble County defeated the Blaze 17-0 in its opener this season.


Alic Vanover ran for four touchdowns Saturday night to lead the Noble County Wolfpack to a 33-18 triumph over the Michigan Grizzlies at Central Noble High School.

BOWLING: Both Angola finalists BRICKYARD: Jimmie Johnson second to Newman twice in Indy began their weeks at U.S. Open FROM PAGE B1


Sunday, and his mother, Diane. Newman kept it together during his celebratory burnout and the drive to Victory Lane, a hallowed area that he twice had to ask his crew over the radio for directions how to get there. He took the customary ride in a convertible around the track with his wife and two young daughters, and happily bowed again and again to kiss the Yard of Bricks. Sure, he smiled, and shared some tender hugs with one of his daughters. But that was the most anyone was getting out of Newman, who had admitted to getting emotional after winning the pole on Saturday but seemed almost

numb following Sunday’s win. “I’m not sure (how I feel) at this point. I know it’s an amazing feeling,” he said. “I was more emotional yesterday after winning the pole than I was two laps after doing my donuts and everything else today. I’m not sure why. I took an emotional hit yesterday. Just an awesome day.” Newman beat Johnson twice on this Brickyard weekend, first when he set a NASCAR track record in knocking Johnson off the pole in qualifying, then Sunday with a fast final pit stop to snatch the win from the four-time Indianapolis winner. The two were the class of the field — they combined to lead 118 of the 160 laps

Kretzer said. “I don’t have much of a chance to do it, but I can still do it.” Tackett said, “The lanes got a little more weird than I thought… I went left because nobody was playing there except for Brian. It was hard to close down angles.” The tournament in Angola ended a busy week for both Kretzer and Tackett. It started for both of them in Columbus, Ohio, at one of the PBA’s premier events, the Lipton’s Bowling U.S. Open. Tackett finished sixth in round-robin match play Thursday with 11,803 pins and a 14-10 record. He was two places away from bowling in the finals Saturday on ESPN and was 246 pins away the from fourth and last finals qualifier Wes Malott. “I bowled really good, but not good enough,” Tackett said. “I threw (in Angola) like I did in the Open. I went on muscle memory. Kretzer was four pins away from moving on past Wednesday’s qualifying round at the U.S. Open and tied for 68th place. He mulled it over with his wife Jill in deciding to play in Angola. Brian caught up with one of his best friends halfway between Columbus

and Angola before playing in the FSB Roto Grip Open. “I needed to get back at it instead of feeling sad,” Kretzer said. Two area men participated in the tournament, but did not advance past Saturday’s qualifying round. Churubusco’s Gabe Jacks was 19th with 1,147 pins, and Angola’s Randy Baatz was 27th with 1.037. The Central Region includes mostly the Great Lakes region from Chicago to the east, and includes Pennsylvania, New York and Kentucky. The Midwest Region includes a portion of the country from Chicago and to the west, including Missouri and Kansas.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Travis Wood did more than just pitch his way out of trouble. He also hit his way to victory. Wood pitched a four-hitter over seven innings and had a home run among his two hits in helping the Chicago Cubs complete a three-game sweep in San Francisco for the first time in 20 years, beating the Giants 2-1 Sunday. “He threw one in there and I was able to put a good swing on it and hit it out of the park,” Wood said. “I’m always surprised. I’m not trying to hit home runs.” Welington Castillo also homered for the Cubs, who won their third straight and five of seven despite playing without Alfonso Soriano, who was traded to the New York Yankees on Friday. “It’s tough to lose him,” Wood said. “He was the leader of this team, he’s been here the longest and he was swinging a hot bat. Guys just have to step up and fill in.” The Cubs’ clubhouse broke into spontaneous cheering when Soriano homered for the Yankees and later learned of his game-winning hit. “He’s our boy,” Castillo said. “He just needs to keep doing what he’s been doing.” For one series, at least, the Cubs found a way to win without their popular ex-teammate. Pablo Sandoval drove in a run for the Giants, who have

lost four straight and seven of eight. Tim Lincecum (5-11) had two hits in addition to pitching seven innings. He gave up two runs and four hits. He walked two and struck out a season-high 10. “Tim did a great job,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “Not only did he pitch well, he got a couple of hits there. It’s a shame he couldn’t get him the win. “In all my years I’ve never seen a team go through such a hard time getting runs in like we’re having right now. It’s a shame because we’re getting such great pitching.” Wood (7-7) allowed an unearned run while walking four and striking out seven. Wood was 1-4 over his previous nine games. He’s been involved in 10 one-run decisions. “Early on it was kind of a grind but it was that way for both of us,” Wood said. “I was able to settle down quite nicely.” Pedro Strop threw a scoreless eighth, his 12th consecutive scoreless outing (10 2-3 innings) since joining the Cubs on July 2. Kevin Gregg recorded the final three outs for his 22nd save in 25 chances, and his third straight of the series. Wood ended the scoreless tie with his third home run, a solo shot with two outs and on a 2-2 count, in the fifth. It was the first career home run Lincecum has allowed to an opposing pitcher.

White Sox lose in 12 on Gordon’s homer CHICAGO (AP) — Jake Peavy is headed to Cleveland with the Chicago White Sox. It remains to be seen if he returns with the team. Peavy brought a couple of large suitcases into Chicago’s clubhouse on Sunday morning and watched as the last-place White Sox lost 4-2 to the Kansas City Royals in 12 innings. He is scheduled to face the Indians on Tuesday, but he’s also one of the top pitchers on the market ahead of Wednesday’s non-waiver trade deadline. “Right now I have some pretty hard travel plans,” Peavy said. “I’m going to be on the team flight to Cleveland and

I’ll show up ready to work in Cleveland tomorrow unless I hear otherwise. “We’ll all hear something in the next few days, so it’ll all soon be over and we won’t have to deal with this one way or the other.” The White Sox closed out a 3-7 homestand with their ninth loss in 12 games overall. The sight of Peavy coming in with all that luggage was another reminder of a season gone awry. After the four-game series against the Indians, the White Sox play three games at Detroit before returning home to face the New York Yankees on Aug. 5.

It could be a much different team by the time the road trip is over, with outfielder Alex Rios also thought to be on the market. “It does me no good to sit around and contemplate what’s going to happen and what I’ve heard,” Peavy said. “You can imagine what my phone’s been like with texts from anybody and everybody. It’s something that I really don’t worry too much about. You just kinda let life happen and you react when something is set in stone.” Kansas City (51-51) earned its sixth consecutive victory — matching its longest winning streak of the season — and got back to .500 for the first time

since it beat Cleveland 2-1 on June 17 to improve to 34-34. It’s the best record for the Royals this late in the year since they finished the 2003 season with an 83-79 mark, according to STATS. “To get here was big,” manager Ned Yost said. “Now we got to get past it and just stay focused day to day.” With no outs and Jarrod Dyson on third in the 12th, the White Sox brought their infield in, but it didn’t matter one bit. Alex Gordon drove a 2-2 pitch from Donnie Veal (1-1) over the wall in center for his first homer since July 7 and No. 10 on the year.


SPORTS BRIEFS • Snedeker wins Canadian Open OAKVILLE, Ontario (AP) — Brandt Snedeker won the Canadian Open on Sunday for his second PGA Tour title of the year, closing with 2-under 70 for a three-stroke victory. Snedeker took the lead Saturday after second-round leader Hunter Mahan withdrew when his wife went into labor, and held on in the breezy final round at Glen Abbey. Mahan’s wife, Kandi, gave birth to daughter Zoe Olivia Mahan early Sunday in Texas. Snedeker finished at 16-under 272. Dustin Johnson, William McGirt, Matt Kuchar and Jason Bohn tied for second.

Angels’ Pujols placed on DL OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols was put on the disabled list Sunday with a tear in his left foot that could end his season. Manager Mike Scioscia said the star will be sidelined for “a significant amount of time.” Pujols has a partially torn plantar fascia, an injury that has bothered him most of the season. He aggravated it while running out a single in the ninth inning of Friday’s 6-4 loss to Oakland. “This is something that, talking to Albert, has been going on for six or seven years,” Scioscia said before the Angels’ game against Athletics. “It’s been going on for a long time and he’s managed it. This is a big blow to our team right now.” Although surgery seems unlikely, Scioscia didn’t rule out the possibility that Pujols could be sidelined for the rest of the year. Pujols left the team and returned to Los Angeles on Saturday morning for additional testing. That’s when the injury was diagnosed.

Marlins coach Martinez resigns MIAMI (AP) — Tino Martinez resigned as the Miami Marlins’ hitting coach hours after complaints by players that he verbally abused them became public. In one instance, Martinez acknowledged he angrily grabbed a player. Martinez was in his first year as a professional coach this year. He sat in the dugout during Sunday’s 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates, then met with Marlins officials and resigned. “I want to apologize to the Marlins organization for my behavior,” Martinez said. “I have made some comments to certain players at certain times that I thought was more constructive criticism. Obviously, they didn’t feel that way, and it kind of backfired on me.” Martinez said he once touched a player in anger, grabbing rookie Derek Dietrich by the jersey in the batting cage early this season. Dietrich, demoted last Monday to Double-A Jacksonville, was among the players to complain. Martinez said he offered to resign earlier, but team owner Jeffrey Loria wanted him to stay on the job. When the complaints by players became public in a story Sunday by the Miami Herald, Martinez became certain he should resign. “It has been building for a few days,” he said. “I didn’t know this was going to come out publicly. When this came out, I thought it was the right thing to do.” Marlins minor league field coordinator John Pierson will become interim hitting coach. First-year manager Mike Redmond said everyone in the organization was disappointed with the outcome of Martinez’ brief tenure.

Broncos lose center for year ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Broncos center Dan Koppen is out for the season after tearing his left ACL on Sunday in 9-on-7 drills, less than six weeks after rejoining Denver following J.D. Walton’s setback in his comeback from ankle surgery. Koppen, an 11-year veteran who played his first nine seasons with the Patriots, was caught in a pile early in the workout and was carted off the field and taken for an MRI, which revealed the season-ending injury. Manny Ramirez, who took most of the snaps at center during Denver’s offseason practices, stepped in for Koppen, whose teams have gone 108-28 in games he has started. “I always cringe,” a somber-sounding coach John Fox said after practice. “You never like to see players get injured, particularly severely injured. But you understand when you do this long enough, whether you’re a player or a coach, that this happens. You know, you get them back ready.”

McNabb to retire as an Eagle PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb will officially retire a member of the Philadelphia Eagles today. McNabb played 11 of his 13 seasons with the Eagles, leading them to eight playoff appearances, five NFC East titles, five conference championship games and one Super Bowl loss. The 36-year-old McNabb hasn’t played in the NFL since 2011. He was traded to Washington in 2010, started 13 games for the Redskins that season and six for Minnesota the following year. McNabb is the Eagles’ leader in may passing categories, including attempts (4,746), completions (2,801), yards (32,873), and touchdowns (216). He led the team to 100 wins, including nine in the playoffs. His 3,469 career yards rushing ranks sixth on the NFL’s all-time list.






Meet the new George H.W. Bush So there he was, wheelchair-bound but with the old sense of style, short of breath but with the old intuitive grace: George H.W. Bush, 89 years old, back in the White House, there to mark the 5,000th Points of Light Award and to remind us that there are second acts in American lives — and that oftentimes they are extraordinary. Many American presidents have had remarkable second lives. John Quincy Adams, like Bush a member of an indispensable American political dynasty, followed his White House years with a star turn in the House and distinguished himself as a man of courage and integrity by winning freedom for Africans who mutinied on the slave ship Amistad and refusing payment for arguing their case before the Court. DAVID M. Supreme Later, Herbert Hoover and Jimmy Carter, like single-term presidents, won the world’s SHRIBMAN Adams applause as advocates for human rights, ranging from freedom from hunger in European war zones to freedom from fear at the polling place. It may be that leaving the White House after a single term liberates a man to do his best work — Rutherford B. Hayes was a tireless advocate for educational opportunity and social mobility, for example — though Franklin Pierce and James Buchanan prove that an inspired and inspiring second act is not the fate of all single-term presidents. Still, nothing changes presidents’ profiles quite so much as leaving the White House, sometimes to have those profiles polished and perhaps sanitized in their post-presidential years. That’s not inevitable, however. Woodrow Wilson has been diminished by the passing of time; grand boulevards in European capitals were named for him after World War I, but today his romantic idealism is often deprecated and his presidency is often dispar... nothing changes aged. presidents’ profiles quite Bush is our latest living example of how time can burnish a so much as leaving the president’s profile. He left office as a caricature of an Andover-and-Ivy White House, sometimes plutocrat, lacking feeling for the to have those profiles victims of an economic downturn, remote from the daily lives of the polished and perhaps people he sought to lead, offering sanitized in their timeworn but irrelevant nostrums for the nation’s problems. post-presidential years. Today the man who relentlessly cultivated that image of Bush, his 1992 rival Bill Clinton, regards him pre-eminently as a man of integrity and achievement. Indeed, Clinton sometimes speaks fondly of Bush as the father he never had, and members of the Bush family joke that Clinton is the 41st president’s favorite son. Bush left office 20 years ago, and his appearance in the East Room last week in mismatched red-and-white-striped socks — his real son, Neil Bush, said the family patriarch now is referred to as “GQ Man” by his wife and children — was a poignant symbol of the passing of time, and of what time’s passing can do to a presidency. For Ulysses S. Grant, the passing of time (as well as a splendid biography released last year by H.W. Brands, “The Man Who Saved the Union”) has transformed the 18th president from a bumbling, corrupt drunkard placeholder into a man of intelligence, determination, shrewdness and tolerance, particularly toward Indians, and, in Brand’s estimation, “indisputably above politics.” For John Adams and for Harry Truman, the passing of time (and landmark biographies by David McCullough) transformed both single-election presidents into men of courage and idealism, almost romance. McCullough’s book on Truman rode (and extended) a crest in the 33rd president’s image, and his Adams volume gave the second president’s historical reputation an extreme makeover. It is not too much to say, figuratively of course, that McCullough retrieved Adams from the dead. For James A. Garfield, the passing of time (and a riveting book by Candice Millard, “Destiny of the Republic,” released in 2011) transformed the 20th president from an obscure figure remembered mostly for being assassinated into a figure of grandness and destiny, a formidable symbol of American opportunity and mobility. Millard’s book remains a briskly selling paperback even in airports, assuring that Garfield will not soon retreat back into popular eclipse. For Dwight D. Eisenhower, the passage of time (and an important 1982 scholarly book by Fred I. Greenstein whose title, “The Hidden-Hand Presidency,” has become a familiar term) transformed the former general from an inarticulate duffer and inveterate golfer into a shrewd if not cunning master of power, supplanting entirely the notion that the 34th president used the White House as a cozy retreat after his principal achievement, commanding Allied forces in Europe during World War II. This new view of Eisenhower was reinforced by last year’s masterly 976-page “Eisenhower in War and Peace” by Jean Edward Smith. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel recently distributed to more than two-dozen Pentagon officials a study of Eisenhower’s handling of the 1956 Suez crisis. For Lyndon B. Johnson, the passage of time (and volumes three and four — though pointedly not volume two — of Robert A. Caro’s magisterial biography of LBJ) transformed the 36th president from a crude if not corrupt accidental chief executive, whose ineptitude sent tens of thousands to their deaths in Vietnam, into an ambitious if not quixotic spokesman for civil rights and an astral if not utopian advocate for social progress. Bush has needed no revisionist tract to rehabilitate his image, though students of the presidency await Jon Meacham’s forthcoming biography. In White House remarks at last week’s event, Neil Bush said his father urged his sons (and all Americans) to live meaningful, ambitious lives and, in the younger Bush’s words, to “find the dignity and goodness in every person.” Historical revisionism and popular reassessment often do just that, but it requires the presence of inner dignity and innate goodness in a president to accomplish it. The elder Bush was a master of power politics in foreign affairs (at the Central Intelligence Agency as well as in the White House) and of hard-nosed politics in his election battles (especially in his 1988 battle with Gov.

Public officials should not be public all the way down BY MICHAEL GERSON

WASHINGTON — Most Americans these days are impatient with judgmentalism and self-righteousness when it comes to sex scandals. But mocking humor flows naturally. They find it easier to smirk than to censure. Politicians caught in money scandals look corrupt. Politicians caught in awkward sexual situations look weak and risible. And often — as in the cases of Rep. Mark Sanford and Sen. David Vitter — they are forgiven. This is consistent with broader social trends. The bourgeois virtues surrounding money have survived the last few decades in better shape than those surrounding sex. Middleclass standards now include the expectations of delayed marriage, of multiple sexual partners making responsible use of contraception, and of cohabitation before marriage. This is not regarded as relativism but as an updated version of bourgeois stability. And sex itself is often viewed as a fundamentally private matter. In politics, some of the effects are positive. Public officials should not be forced to be public all the way down. Given the complexity of human relationships, every couple requires enough personal space to work through difficult times. And the notion that being faithless in private responsibilities inevitably leads to the betrayal of public responsibilities is ahistorical (see Franklin Roosevelt or Dwight Eisenhower). Marital infidelity is destructive to spouses and children and a violation of the Seventh Commandment. It is not,

by itself, a disqualification for public office. But just as it is not sufficient to say that sex is always relevant, it is not sufficient to say it is never relevant. It can also reveal less sympathetic character failings than a weakness of the flesh. The problem arises with sex plus other things. One problematic category is sex plus compulsion, as we see in the case of Anthony Weiner. He engaged in his online activities after previous exposure, after resignation from Congress, after the promise to seek treatment, and shortly before resuming his political ambitions. In his reported contact with a 22-yearold, Weiner employed his scandalbased celebrity as a lure. If this is a clinical addiction, akin to prescription drug abuse, then no psychologist would recommend a campaign for mayor of New York as part of the healing process. If this is not a clinical addiction, it is recklessness bordering on predation (particularly when the alleged offer of career and financial benefits is considered). In either case, Mayor Weiner would be a likely source of future scandal. Another category is sex plus hubris, as we saw in the case of Eliot Spitzer. As governor of New York, Spitzer signed a law making paying for sex a Class E felony, which he serially violated. The problem here is not mere hypocrisy. (All adulterers engage in hypocrisy, unless they are public advocates of polyamory.) As a law enforcement officer, Spitzer seemed to believe he was above the law, exempt from the rules that cover normal citizens. This is not

Given the complexity of human relationships, every couple requires enough personal space to work through difficult times.

• only a view of morality but also a view of power. Then there is the category of sex plus misogyny, which seems to be the case in San Diego’s scandal by the sea. Mayor Robert Filner stands accused of a variety of reprehensible acts against women unfortunate enough to be within groping range. Filner, it should be noted, disputes at least some of those claims. He has also said, “I am embarrassed to admit that I have failed to fully respect the women who work for me and with me.” He added: “I need help.” If these accusations are true, it is difficult to argue that dehumanization and mistreatment based on gender are purely personal matters. Mostly, sex is properly private. Combined with recklessness, the abuse of power or cruelty, however, it can take on public implications. While rejecting judgmentalism, it is still appropriate for voters to exercise some judgment. MICHAEL GERSON’S email address is

Briefs • Large explosions rock Benghazi TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — Two large explosions hit courthouses in the city of Benghazi late Sunday, leaving part of one of the buildings a pile of rubble, two security officials said. An official in Benghazi said 10 people were wounded, two seriously, in the explosion outside one courthouse. Video posted by residents online showed several vehicles destroyed by that explosion. The video also showed residents standing in a crater in the ground outside the building. Another courthouse in the eastern part of the city was also hit, said a security official in the capital, Tripoli. The courthouse in the north of Benghazi was the site of the first protests against dictator Moammar Gadhafi in early 2011.

Arrest made in British Twitter case LONDON (AP) — British police on Sunday arrested a man in connection with online threats made toward a feminist campaigner, a case which has ignited calls for social media platforms to institute stronger protections against verbal abuse. Caroline Criado-Perez says she has been facing a deluge of abuse — including threats to rape and kill her — over Twitter during the past several days. She said the threats started after her campaign to get a woman’s picture on a U.K. bank note succeeded and resulted in the Bank of England’s announcement last week that author Jane Austen will feature on England’s new 10-pound notes.

Two-headed turtle gets Facebook page SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A two-headed turtle born last month at the San Antonio Zoo has become so popular that she has her own Facebook page. Zoo officials say the Texas cooter, named Thelma and Louise for the female duo in the 1991 Oscar-winning movie, has been doing well. Spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike says the turtle eats and swims, and added that the two heads — named Louise Left and Thelma Right — get along. The Facebook page on Sunday showed photos of the quirky reptile and imaginary conversations between the two heads.

People • 9-year-old girl is nation’s youngest chess expert CHELMSFORD, Mass. (AP) — Only three years or so since first picking up the game of chess, 9-year-old Carissa Yip can already look down at 93 percent of the more than 51,000 players Yip registered with the U.S. Chess Federation. She has risen so far up the rankings that she has reached the expert level at a younger age than anyone since the chess federation began electronic record-keeping in 1991, a new level she reached in recent weeks. Her father, Percy, who taught her until she began beating him within a year, said she could reach master level in as soon as a year. “Some never reach master level,” he said. “From expert to master, it’s a huge jump.” But Carissa, who will be a fifth-grader at McCarthy Middle School this fall, has improved by leaps and bounds. She first played competitively at the MetroWest Chess Club and Wachusett Chess Club, at the latter of which she’s the top-ranked player.


Florida shooter was angry loner HIALEAH, Fla. (AP) — The gunman who went on a shooting rampage at his South Florida apartment building, killing six people, was a lonely man who spoke about having pent up anger, those who knew him said Sunday. Pedro Vargas, 42, lived on the fourth floor of a barren, concrete apartment complex in the Miami suburb of Hialeah with his elderly mother. He rarely spoke with others there, and confided to a man who worked out at the same gym that he liked to work out his anger by lifting weights and trying to get big. “He’d just say this was the only thing that would keep him normal, pulling out all the anger in the gym,” Jorge Bagos told The Associated Press. Bagos said the gunman expressed frustration over bad experiences with women and losing all his hair from using steroids. On Friday night, Vargas set a combustible liquid on fire in his apartment, sending the unit into flames, police said. Building manager Italo Pisciotti and his wife went running toward the smoke. Vargas opened his door and shot and killed both of them, Lt. Carl Zogby, a spokesman

with the Hialeah Police Department said. Vargas then went back into his apartment and began firing from his balcony. One of the shots struck and killed Carlos Javier Gavilanes, 33, who neighbors said was returning home from his son’s boxing practice. Vargas then stormed into a third-story apartment, where he shot and killed a family of three: Patricio Simono, 64, Merly Niebles, 51, and her 17-year-old daughter. For eight hours, police followed and exchanged gunfire with Vargas throughout the five-story apartment complex as terrified residents took cover in bathrooms and huddled with relatives, sometimes so close to the gunfire they could feel the shots. In the final hours, Vargas took two people captive in a fifth-story unit. Police attempted to negotiate with him, but the talks fell apart and a SWAT team swarmed in, killing Vargas and rescuing both hostages. On Sunday, neighbors struggled to remember anything more than cursory exchanges with Vargas. He was often seen taking his mother, who used a walker, to run errands and go to doctor appointments.

Paris thief walks out with $53 million in diamonds, jewels PARIS (AP) — A staggering $53 million (40 million euro) worth of diamonds and other jewels were stolen Sunday from the Carlton Intercontinental Hotel in Cannes, in one of Europe’s biggest jewelry heists in recent years, police said. One expert noted the crime follows recent jail escapes by members of the notorious “Pink Panther” jewel thief gang. The hotel in the sweltering French Riviera was hosting a temporary jewelry exhibit over the summer from the prestigious Leviev diamond house, which is owned by Israeli billionaire Lev Leviev. A police spokesman said the theft took place around noon, but he could not confirm local media reports that the robber was a single gunman who stuffed a suitcase with the gems before making a swift exit. The spokesman spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the

matter on the record. The luxury Carlton hotel is situated on the exclusive Promenade de la Croisette that stretches a mile and a half along the French Riviera, and is thronged by the rich and famous throughout the year. The hotel’s position provides not only a beautiful view of the sea but also an easy getaway for potential jewel thieves along the long stretch of road. The Carlton also was robbed in a smash-andn-grab by three armed men that stormed the jewelry store there in 1994 and made off with $46 million worth of gems. That held the record as Europe’s largest jewelry heist until 2003 when the Belgian diamond exchange in Antwerp was seized. “It’s a huge theft. Anytime you talk about a heist with many millions of dollars it turns heads and feeds the imagination,” said Jonathan Sazonoff, U.S. editor for the Museum Security Network website and an authority on high-value crime.

Second body found in Hudson PIERMONT, N.Y. (AP) — A day after a bride-to-be was pulled dead from the Hudson River, the body of her fiance’s best man was found a mile downstream Sunday, the second victim of a nighttime crash involving a Lennon speedboat and a barge north of New York City. The deadly collision left the groom-to-be grieving for his intended and his best friend, while facing surgery for his own injuries as another friend is charged with manslaughter — two weeks before the wedding day. “I don’t think you can put words to what we have to tell these families,” Rockland County Sheriff Louis Falco said as he announced that a body believed to be that of Mark Lennon, 30, the best man, was found Sunday morning.

At the church where Lindsey Stewart and Brian Bond, both 30, would have been married Aug. 10, the pastor said their lives “were filled with hopes and dreams, and that has been snuffed away.” Stewart, Bond, Lennon and three others were on a speedboat that crashed Friday night into a barge holding equipment for the construction of a replacement for the Tappan Zee. The group had left the village of Piermont for a short trip aboard the 21-foot Stingray across the river to Tarrytown, about 30 miles north of New York City, authorities said. Police said it was being piloted by Jojo John, 35, of Nyack, whom they suspect was intoxicated and who has been charged with vehicular manslaughter and vehicular assault. Stewart and Lennon were thrown off the boat. When the bodies were found, they did not have life vests on, said Sheriff’s Department Chief William Barbera.

Floods deluge North Carolina CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A system of thunderstorms across western North Carolina stalled on Saturday and dumped about a foot of rain on the area, causing power outages and flash floods that swamped homes and washed out roads and bridges. There were 18 reports of swift-water rescues, and one minor injury, said Jim Dickerson, spokesman for Catawba County Emergency Services. He did not have details. Hickory Mayor Rudy Wright urged residents to stay indoors and away from flooded roads, The Charlotte Observer reported. “This is a time for all of us to be very careful and patient,” he said. “The cleanup is going to take a while.” Parts of Catawba and surrounding counties were

under water Saturday. Catawba County officials said some of the worst flash flooding in decades followed a nearly stationary weather system that dumped 10 inches of rain in about six hours. Officials closed 65 roads in Catawba County by Saturday afternoon. At least six will remain closed for up to three months to repair damage, Dickerson said. A full damage assessment will begin Sunday, he said. High Shoals Lake in Catawba County rose nearly five feet over a 10-hour span. Officials said high water will move down the Catawba River later Saturday, possibly causing more flooding. The rain had stopped in the area by late afternoon Saturday. The National Weather Service said the

heavy rain will move east across the western piedmont of North Carolina and northeastern South Carolina. Several miles of Interstate 85 in Cabarrus County was closed for a short time due to high water. Traffic moved at a crawl along both I-85 and Interstate 77 north of Charlotte as drivers navigated water several inches deep in spots. In Lincoln County, there were reports of up to three feet of water covering roads. Duke Energy reported about 5,000 power outages. It is at least the fourth major flash flooding event in the Charlotte region in the past month. Highway officials already are working to repair more than a dozen Charlotte-area roads damaged by previous flooding.

Empty house needs family’s full attention DEAR ABBY: My grandmother made the decision to move to an assisted-living facility two years ago. She left most of her belongings in her farmhouse, which has sat empty since then. Her health is fine, so she should be around for many years. It has already been decided that my dad will inherit the house, but he doesn’t want to live there anytime soon because of the location. (It’s way out in the country.) I’m afraid the house is going to become unlivable if it sits for years without utilities or anyone taking care of it. Dad mows the grass, but that’s about it, and all of Grandma’s belongings are collecting dead flies. Nobody seems to care but me. Dad has three siblings, and between them there are nine grandchildren. How do I get my family to take care of Grandma’s house? — CONSCIENTIOUS IN




Someone should check the place at least once a month. If no one else in the family is willing to step up to the plate and help out, because you are conscientious, it looks like you’re elected. If it’s too much for you, perhaps a caretaker could be hired to watch over, or possibly live in, the house.

Another common weight-loss surgery is known as gastric bypass, which shrinks the size of your stomach. It also reconfigures

your small intestine so that food bypasses most of your stomach and the upper part of your small intestine. As a result, your body absorbs fewer calories and your appetite shrinks. Gastric bypass can be done through open surgery or laparoscopically.

DEAR DOCTOR K: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s announcement about his weight-loss surgery got me thinking. Can you tell me more about this surgery and who might be a good candidate for it? DEAR READER: Governor Christie — as well-known for his waistline as his politics — recently confirmed that he had weight-loss surgery. There are several types of weightloss surgery (also called “bariatric surgery”). They work either by shrinking the size of the stomach, reducing the absorption of calories and nutrients in the intestine, or both. Some types of surgery also lead to hormone changes that reduce appetite and burn energy more efficiently. The procedure Christie reportedly had is called gastric banding, or “Lap-Band.” Gastric

You can also qualify for surgery if you have a BMI of 35 to 39.9 along with an obesity-related medical condition such as diabetes or heart disease. In people with a BMI of 40 or higher, the surgery can lengthen life, although the evidence for this is stronger in women than in men. Don’t think of weightloss surgery as an easy fix.

Ex-Penn State officials headed to court HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — It was late at night on Feb. 27, 2001, and Penn State’s then-president, Graham Spanier, one of academia’s most prominent administrators, typed a brief email to two other top administrators as they debated how to respond to a thorny situation. He was, he wrote, supportive of the athletic director’s proposed approach. “The only downside for us is if the message isn’t ‘heard’ and acted upon, and we then become vulnerable for not having reported it,” Spanier wrote. The question of what exact situation the three men were discussing will go before a judge today to determine whether Spanier, retired university vice president Gary Schultz and then-athletic director Tim Curley must face trial on charges they covered up an allegation that Jerry Sandusky was sexually preying on boys. The men say they are

innocent and were never aware that an allegation at the time involved anything of a sexual nature. Rather, they say, they had believed that Sandusky, a former top assistant coach on Penn State’s heralded football team, and the boy known in court papers as Victim 2 were engaged in nothing more than horseplay in a university locker room shower earlier that month. Instead of reporting it to police, Sandusky was told not to bring boys onto the campus anymore, according to a grand jury report released Nov. 1 that recommended charges against the men. At the time, nobody sought to learn the identity of the boy. Sandusky is now serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence after being convicted last year of sexually abusing 10 boys. The conviction included molesting Victim 5 in those showers a mere six months later, sexually abusing Victim 3 around the same period and molesting

Victims 1 and 9 in later years. The case will go in front of District Judge William Wenner, a former Dauphin County detective, and the preliminary hearing is expected to last a day or two. In recent years as a district judge, Wenner has carved out a niche in handling many of the biggest grand jury cases developed by the state attorney general’s office. In these cases, Wenner has found, with the exception of a few charges he has dismissed, that state prosecutors have met the low burden of evidence necessary to win approval to take their cases to a full court trial. For this hearing, state prosecutors led by Chief Deputy Attorney General Bruce Beemer are not trying to prove the men’s guilt. Rather, they just have to prove that enough evidence exists to warrant a trial. No witness list was available Friday, but one key piece of evidence at the

hearing could be that email exchange among the men. “My eyes popped out of my head when I saw those emails because they are just so dramatically significant and documentary evidence of a then-conscious state of mind,” said Thomas Kline, a Philadelphia lawyer whose client, Victim 5, testified against Sandusky. A football team graduate assistant in 2001, Mike McQueary, has testified that he saw Sandusky and a boy engaged in a sex act in the locker room shower and within days reported it to coach Joe Paterno, Curley and Schultz. However, Curley and Schultz say McQueary never reported that the incident was sexual in nature, and Spanier, in turn, has said Curley and Schultz never told him about any sort of sex abuse of a boy. The three are charged with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy.


Coal protest An anti-coal protester is being lead away to the lock up by a Somerset patrolman during a protest at the Brayton Point Power Station in Somerset, Mass., Sunday. Dozens of climate activists were arrested at a rally protesting a coal-fired power plant in Somerset. Forty-four protesters demanding cleaner, alternative fuel sources were arrested at the Brayton Point Power Station and charged with trespassing. Up to 400 activists from across New England and the Northeast gathered at the power plant site. The protest was organized by Massachusetts.

Court watchers wait to see if ‘Whitey’ Bulger testifies BOSTON (AP) — As lawyers for James “Whitey” Bulger begin to defend him against a massive racketeering indictment charging him in 19 killings, one big question remains: Will he testify? Some lawyers not connected to the case say Bulger has too much baggage to testify, including a prior criminal record and a long reputa-

tion as an organized crime figure. But others say Bulger’s case is different because, at age 83, he knows he is likely to spend the rest of his life in prison and may be more interested in settling scores than being acquitted. Bulger said as much in letters he wrote to a friend from prison after he was captured in Santa

Monica, Calif., following 16 years on the run as one of the nation’s most-wanted fugitives. Bulger told his friend he wanted to set the record straight on two fronts: First, he was not an FBI informant, as prosecutors and many witnesses at the trial have claimed, and second, he did not kill women, according to a book called “Whitey

Bulger: America’s Most Wanted Gangster and the Manhunt That Brought Him to Justice” written by Boston Globe reporters Shelley Murphy and Kevin Cullen. “This whole trial is an effort on his part to overcompensate for his informant label,” said Boston attorney Anthony Cardinale, who helped expose the corrupt relation-

ship between the FBI and Bulger while he represented former New England Mob boss Francis “Cadillac Frank” Salemme. “He’s doing anything he can to have some shred of a reputation left,” Cardinale said. But despite the impulse to want to rebut testimony that he ratted on the Mafia and members of his own gang, Bulger would open

himself up to even more damaging evidence if he decides to take the witness stand, Cardinale said. He said prosecutors could then bring in evidence that when he was charged in a string of bank robberies in the 1950s, he ratted out his co-defendants in that case. “He would be a grease spot on the floor after cross-examination,” Cardinale said.
