Worship. A local First Unitarian man is holding a church service dedicated to craft beer this summer. With the proliferation of local craft brewers producing quality small batch beverages, there are plenty of Philadelphians who would likely say they worship at the altar of beer. But Dane Wells is taking the metaphor to a new level. The avid ale aficionado and active worshipper will hold a service at Philadelphia’s First Unitarian Church dedicated to the sudsy stuff — literally. Wells said he understands that some people 8th and Poplar

may have reservations about the unconventional pairing. “However, what I’m discussing is what I would call beer as a social relaxant — and there is a social connotation of beer,” he said. “If somebody comes up to you and says, ‘Let’s discuss this over a beer,’ the picture that comes to mind is of a very convivial meeting with everybody on equal footing.” The ethos of equality is embodied by the craft beer revolution that began sweeping the country in the mid-’80s, according to Wells. “It’s an amazing movement, and this social connotation has rubbed off on the way that small brewers do business,” he said. “I think there are lessons to learn in how we operate in society from these brewGunfire

“I think if we picked up some of these lessons of conviviality and equality and moved them out of the world of beer and into other realms, the world would be a happier, better place to live. My solution to the United Nations is to set up a beer tent — everything would go a lot easier.” Wells

They’re not gunning for market shares; they’re gunning for something they feel is good beer.” Though he’s a lay member, Wells periodically leads services at the Unitarian Church, which espouses no official creed but encourages parishioners to explore interests.

Wells approached congregation officials after learning that the American Homebrewers Association, in which he previously served as a certified beer judge, will this summer hold its annual national conference in Philadelphia. “I think there are things you have to examine, when you look around and they inspire you to do things a certain way,” he said. “Frankly, the craft beer movement has tremendous inspirational points to it. Why not discuss them? First Unitarians are a very liberal denomination, and they are more open to discussing lots of things you don’t normally hear in church.”

THANK GOODNESS FOR LITTLE GIRLS

Opinion

JOHN BOLARIS BOLARIS VISION

I’d like to wish all the fathers out there a belated Happy Father’s Day. My daughter is 9 years old and she is truly a gift from heaven. Is there anything better in life than having your little girl by your side? I’m sure having a son feels just the same, but I can only speak from a father with an extraordinary relationship with his little girl, Reina Sofia. My first memory was her birth — that was amazing. It was 5 p.m., Feb. 27, 2004. Now in the TV news business we’re in, that’s what we call sweeps. My news director at the time at CBS-TV in N.Y. let me have the 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts off. But if labor extended into the 11 p.m. newscast, they wanted me back in the anchor seat. During her delivery, I decided to put on not the Weather Channel, but the Golf Channel. My reasoning for this logic

Quoted

Is there anything better in life than having your little girl by your side? was to help my love at the time get into a rhythm. You know, nice and slow pushes with the iron, then get out the big dog, the driver, and go for it! (Push real hard.) To me, this unorthodox approach worked as the delivery went as smoothly as a Phil Mickelson follow through. The pediatrician and Tiffany McElroy, the mother of our child, thought differently. She kind of looked at me cross-eyed when I pointed to the Golf Channel and was trying to connect the two. The pure excitement of the birth and cutting the umbilical cord took away any pen-

alty strokes I might have received. When I held my little girl for the very first time, I cried as it took my breath away. And some of the things that will always make my heart melt — changing her diaper for the first time; the first time she was able to pull herself up in the crib and then turned around and smiled at me; that pure, sweet baby’s breath when they fall asleep in the nape of your neck. My first daddy-to-daughter serious talk (she was 7): “Daddy, I hear you’re a bachelor, you know, wifeless, and when I go to UCLA you will be all alone.” On that note ,I’ll see what I can do. Thank you to my daughter for making all the negative melt away and for feeling a love like no other. By the way, I did make the 11 p.m. newscast that night. I had to. It was sweeps. Happy Father’s Day.

Round 2: School district slashes 76 more jobs Deeper cuts. In its effort to fill a $304 million budget gap, the school district eliminates even more jobs. The first round slashed 3,783. The second round cut 76 more. The School District of Philadelphia announced additional layoffs Friday. Sixty-three worked at the district headquarters on North Broad Street. Thirteen were cut from early childhood education programs in regional administrative offices. Overall, 137 positions are slated to be elimi-

nated, which includes 61 vacant positions. The district, which suffers from a $304 million budget deficit, expects the new cuts to save $23 million. For the 2014 fiscal year, the central administration budget will comprise 2.3 percent of the district’s. “In total, the schoolbased, regional and central administrative office reductions represent 19.9 percent of the current 19,530-member workforce,” according to a news release. “Overall, the school district has seen a 34.3 percent reduction in staff since 2011, including a 44.6 percent reduction from central administration.”

What’s cut? As as result of the cutbacks: •

Police said a man, 38, was replacing segments of the roof at an apartment complex on the 8800 block of Krewstown Road when he fell through the roof and into an apartment shortly after 11 a.m., landing on a couch. The man was uninjured, but parts of the roof struck a 12-yearold girl who was lying on the floor watching television. Roofing contractor owner John Paul Kravchak, 60, told officers he was the person who fell through the roof, according to police. He was arrested and charged with making false reports to law enforcement. METRO

Hundreds of thousands attend rally for Erdogan

People gather during a rally at the Kazlicesma parade ground in Istanbul yesterday to listen to a speech by Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan. / GETTY IMAGES

Speech. Erdogan said the rallies were to kick off campaigning for elections next year and not related to the protests. Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan rallied hundreds of thousands of supporters at an Istanbul parade ground yesterday as riot police fired teargas several yards away in the city center to disperse anti-government protesters. Erdogan told a sea of flag-waving supporters that two weeks of protests had been manipulated by “terrorists” and dismissed suggestions that he was behaving like a dictator, a constant refrain from those who have taken to the streets. Riot police fired teargas into side streets around the central Taksim Square as he spoke, trying to prevent protesters from regrouping after hundreds were evicted from the adjoining Gezi Park, the center of the protests, late on Saturday. “The attitude across Turkey with the pretext of Taksim’s Gezi Park is not sincere. It is nothing more than the minority’s

Two Turkish union federations said yesterday they would stage a one-day nationwide strike today in protest at the forced eviction by riot police of hundreds of anti-government demonstrators from an Istanbul park.

On other Sunday talk shows, lawmakers said Snowden, 29, should return to the U.S. and face charges related to the disclosure. / GETTY IMAGES

White House chief: Location of leaker currently unknown Step up. Senator Chambliss says Snowden ought to “look an American jury in the eye” and explain why. White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough said today that he doesn’t know the whereabouts of Edward Snowden. The last known location of the admitted U.S. intelligence leaker was in Hong Kong. McDonough, in an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” declined to say whether there are plans to prosecute Snowden, a former government con-

tractor. Speaking on Fox News Sunday, former Vice President Dick Cheney defended the NSA programs, which began under former President George W. Bush, saying they have produced valuable intelligence in the global war on terrorism and have led to the disruption of planned attacks on the U.S. Cheney said he was unaware of what, if anything, President Barack Obama did to alter the surveillance techniques. “The program, obviously, from what’s now been released, is still in operation,” Cheney, 72, said. “I think it’s good. I think it has saved lives and kept us free from other attacks.”

McDonough said Obama will soon speak to the country about the surveillance programs, saying the president holds privacy “sacrosanct” and does not believe the surveillance efforts Snowden disclosed violate the privacy of any Americans. “I think you will hear the president talk about this in the days ahead,” McDonough said.

US spy agency paper says fewer than 300 phone numbers scrutinized The government only searched for detailed information on calls involving fewer than 300 specific phone numbers among the millions of raw phone records collected by the National Security Agency in 2012, according to a government paper

obtained by Reuters on Saturday. The unclassified paper was circulated Saturday within the government by U.S. intelligence agencies and apparently is an attempt by spy agencies and the Obama administration to rebut accusations it overreached in investigating potential militant plots. The paper circulated on Saturday said data from the NSA phone and email collections programs not only led

U.S. investigators to the ringleader of a plot to attack New York’s subway system in 2009, but also to one of his co-conspirators in the United States. The paper discusses an NSA program that collects “metadata” — raw information that does not identify individual telephone subscribers — from major U.S. phone companies showing all calls made by those companies’ subscribers to phones within the United States and overseas.

North Korea yesterday offered high-level talks with the United States to ease tensions on the Korean peninsula, but the White House said that any talks must involve Pyongyang taking action to show it is moving toward scrapping its nuclear weapons. The North Korea National Defense Commission, in a statement carried by KCNA news agency yesterday, said Washington can pick a date and place for talks, and the two sides can discuss a range of issues, but no preconditions should be attached. “In order to ease ten-

sions on the Korean peninsula and to achieve regional peace and safety, we propose to hold high-level talks between the DPRK and the United States,” said the spokesman for the North’s National Defense Commission in the statement. North Korea’s official name is the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). “If the U.S. is truly interested in securing regional peace and safety and easing tensions, it should not mention preconditions for the talks,” the statement said. The United States will discuss the new offer in meetings with Japan and South Korea in Washington tomorrow and Wednesday, a senior administration official said. Washington has been skeptical of any move by Pyongyang for dialogue, as it has repeatedly backtracked on deals. REUTERS

‘Bachelor’ Sean knows his 15 minutes are ticking We caught up with “The Bachelor” and “Dancing with the Stars” contestant Sean Lowe at the one-year anniversary party for Haven Rooftop at the Sanctuary Hotel on Tuesday, and the former college football player dropped some wisdom on becoming caught up in the reality star spotlight. “Once the show is done filming and you get out, you’re hit with some sense of fame,” Lowe said. “I can see how it’s appealing, but it always fades away eventually.” Of bride-to-be Catherine Guidici, he told us: “I went into ‘The Bachelor’ thinking if I could find someone to settle down with then I’m ready,” Lowe said. “Catherine was that person and I couldn’t be happier.” — Additional reporting by Chris Longo

We find it very hard to imagine these two naming their firstborn daughter something reasonable and not designed to elicit WTFs from everyone not crazy, everywhere. Plus, the Kim K./Yeezy progeny has got a lot to live up to, namewise, considering that baby will probably spend most of its young life trying to crawl out of Blue Ivy’s shadow. (We are still not over the fact Jay and B named a child Blue Ivy, by the way. It’s a human being, not a supervillain from “X-Men,” for Pete’s sake.) On a side note, what are we all supposed to speculate about on Twitter now that both Ye’s album and Ye’s baby have leaked? Ew, sorry.

OMG, you guys. It finally happened. On Saturday, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s superspawn entered the world, thus setting the bar for every future baby to be born, ever. In fact, we might as well just close the book on having babies right now because this was some next-level baby-making. It’s a girl (as was revealed in “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” which you’d know if you watched that show. Which we definitely do not). Both Kim and baby are reportedly healthy and doing just fine. As of press time, they had yet to reveal her name, but we’d be surprised if it didn’t start with a “K.” Over/under odds on some variation of the word king? We’d also be surprised if it wasn’t something totally wack.

The Rolling Stones know they’re old, and they know you’re old, too. During the first few songs in Boston last week, the video screen behind the band showed the faces of fans in the audience at the TD Garden, juxtaposed with montages of screaming teenagers from when the band was at the height of cultural relevance. The live feed didn’t capture such youthful frenzy, but the 50 and Counting tour is not about pretending that the audience or the band members — most of whom are in their late 60s — are still young. It’s not about denying the passing of time, but celebrating what the band did in that

intense enough to make the audience almost feel like this was the poignant music of the present.

Slither over to this exhibit Museum. Mark Laita’s photos will have you looking at snakes in a whole new way. The photographs in Mark Laita’s new exhibit “Serpentine,” which just opened at the Academy of Natural Sciences, are stunning on a purely abstract level, with bold colors, sinuous curves and strikingly tactile textures. It’s almost enough to make you forget just how deadly his subjects are. “I found I tended to get caught up in the beauty of these creatures when I was behind the camera,” Laita says, “and often forgot how dangerous they could be.” Laita, a Los Angelesbased photographer whose work ranges from socially conscious portraiture to glamorous commercial work, spent more than a year in Central America shooting a wide range of snakes in the care of col-

lectors, breeders, zoos and venom laboratories. “All the handlers and collectors were very professional,” Laita says of the

experience. “I did see a few missing fingers here and there, but mostly everyone I worked with was great.” His portraits of these fanged serpents divorce them from their environment, placing them against a backdrop of stark black. “I wanted to simplify the visual and make it purely about the shapes their bodies create,” he says. “For me, this is just a study of form, color and movement. That snakes are connected to so much symbolism makes it even more interesting. Everyone seems to have an extreme

reaction — positive or negative — to snakes.” Laita traces his own interest in snakes to his childhood in Detroit. “As a kid in Michigan, I was always catching snakes, frogs and salamanders,” he says. “Even where I live now, in California, I’ve created an environment where the native species of frogs, snakes, newts, etc. can thrive.” A book also titled “Serpentine,” collecting these photographs, follows “Sea,” a collection of images of sea creatures. But don’t expect Laita’s future work to follow a similar trajectory. “I try to push myself to do something different,” he says, “to not repeat myself. Now that my last two books featured animals, I’ll make sure I steer myself in a very different direction. The variety of subject matter keeps it interesting for me.”

“Man of Steel,” the big-budget reboot of the Superman franchise, leapt over the apocalyptic buddy comedy “This is the End,” collecting a muscular $113.1 million to lead the domestic box office with the year’s second-largest debut weekend and the biggest June opening ever. The movie, starring British-born Henry Cavill in the first Superman movie released in seven years, carried a hefty budget of $225 million and took in a total of $125 million through yesterday including early

screenings, according to www.boxoffice.com. “This is the End,” written by star Seth Rogen and his childhood friend Evan Goldberg, collected $20.5 million at theaters in the domestic market comprised of the United States and Canada, according to studio estimates. The comedy depicting the end of the world stars more than a dozen wellknown Hollywood actors including James Franco, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera and Emma Watson. In third place, the heist caper “Now You See Me” continued its strongerthan-expected showing with ticket sales of $10.3 million, bringing its threeweek total to $80 million. “The Purge,” made for $3 million by the producer of the low-budget “Paranormal Activity” series,

finished fifth with $8.2 million, behind the speedingcar franchise sixth film, “Fast & Furious 6,” which took in $9.4 million in its fourth week in release, for a total of $220 million since Memorial Day. “The Internship,” a comedy starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson based on the antics of nerds in search of a job at Internet giant Google, continued its lackluster box office showing, selling $7 million in tickets to finish sixth. “After Earth,” starring Will Smith and his teenage son Jaden, continued its weak showing at U.S. and Canadian box offices with $3.6 million, in ninth place. “After Earth” did perform well overseas, selling $24 million worth of tickets outside the domestic market.

HOW TO DEAL WITH THE GREEN-EYED MONSTER

No Insurance Necessary

KIM SCHNEIDERMAN, MSW, LCSW NOVEL-PERSPECTIVE.COM Kim Schneiderman is a psychotherapist and former journalist with a private practice in New York City.

An old saying goes, “Who is happy? He who is content with his lot.� Keep a daily gratitude list of the blessings in your life.

A former dance teacher of mine used to say, “Don’t bother comparing yourself to others. There will always be people better than you, and worse than you. The most important thing is to ask yourself, ‘Am I improving?’� Of course, this is often easier said than done. Not only are we constantly bombarded by advertisements preying on our insecurities, but recent studies show that social media sites actually feed jealousy by creating the illusion that other people are living happier, more fulfilled lives than our own. I say “illusion� because, as a Stanford University study seems to suggest, people often underestimate the discontent of others. Most of us can expect to encounter the ugly green monster from time to time. And while we may never truly slay the beast, the following tips can help

The question: Recently, a lot of my friends are getting engaged, having babies and going on cool trips. Although I’m happy for them, I’m also envious. How do I deal with my jealousy?

keep it at bay:

1

Acknowledge your jealousy without judgment. Envy is a universal human emotion. The more you can own your feelings, the less likely you’ll act on them.

2

Get in touch with the aspiration and wishes underneath the envy. Are you jealous of your friend’s trip to Tuscany? Ask yourself what steps you might take to make your own travel plans. It may take time, but setting an intention can point you in a positive direction.

How yoga helps you run better What happens when you run Running is great cardio, but it’s not very well-rounded, warns Laura Denham-Jones, who teaches a runner’s yoga class at Triyoga, London’s top health center. “As an exercise that requires you to do a repetitive motion, over and over, some muscles are used more than others. The problem, in the long-term, is that if you have some imbalance in the body, like a weak or tight side or a twist in your pelvis, then you’re repeatedly doing that same outof-sync motion, which will make things worse. Things like your hips and your hamstrings will get tight,” she explains. While it’s not so bad to have some tightness in muscles that are supposed to be strong, you’ll need to balance out all the work they do. Why? To prevent injury, says Denham-Jones: “If things get too tight, and you then try and do something like increase your stride, you risk pulling your hamstrings. And it’s amazing how reluctant

Yoga is about respecting the body: “It creates a body awareness whereby, when you notice when something is painful, instead of pushing through in a macho kind of way, you learn to take things easy so that you can nip injuries in the bud.” Another benefit is that, as yoga is done barefoot, you can’t rely on shoes to support your ankle: Your muscles are doing all the work, and they’ll inevitably get stronger. You’re also stretching the tendons and increasing suppleness through the foot, says Denham-Jones.

Pencils down, the ACT is going digital Tests. OďŹ&#x192;cials are changing the longtime exam. Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gathering materials for Harvard or your local school, applying to college can be a stressful time for high school seniors. Between applications, extracurricular activities and those pesky standardized tests, getting into your dream school has become a job in itself. However, the ACT makers are hoping to make at least one part of the process a little easier. In May, the ACT announced that its flagship test will be converted into a digital format in 2015. However, representatives for the exam say students shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put down their pencils just yet. Even after the online test is launched, it will only be available in select high schools before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s available nationally.

SAT versus ACT Format

Style

â&#x20AC;˘

SAT. Critical Reading: Two 25-min sections and one 20-min section; Math: Two 25-min sections and one 20-min section; Writing: one 25-min essay, one 25-min section and one 10-min section

â&#x20AC;˘

SAT. Questions are often trickier and phrased in ways that make them confusing to decipher.

â&#x20AC;˘

ACT. Questions are straightforward, but have the tendency to be longer.

Metro talked to ACT Vice President Paul Weeks to find out more about the changes in the exam. What are some of the diďŹ&#x20AC;erences with the new test? The first thing is the mode of the testing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be moving

toward a computer-based administration of the ACT. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also be adding some optional constructiveresponse questions, which give students another way to demonstrate their skills. What are you hoping will come from the shift to online?

More flexibility for users is the biggest thing. Having efficiency, the incorporation of other kinds of items eventually and more meaningful information that students, teachers and parents can use to know whether or not students are ready for life after high school.

Why would you advise someone to take the ACT over the SAT? Testing behaviors are very personal. I can tell you that the ACT is a curriculum-based test that reflects the skills that are typically provided by taking good college-prep core courses.

And students who have done that tend to be very comfortable with the ACT, because it reflects the kinds of things that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re actually learning on a day-to-day basis.

change. The content of our test is not going to change. English, math, reading and science -â&#x20AC;&#x201D; these have been the content areas that have been reflected on the ACT, and they will continue to be. The 1-to-36 score scale that teachers, col-

leges and students have become familiar with will not change. [I asked] my own daughters. Their first reactions were, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Howâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s test security going to be?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So it reminds me that for every student, taking the ACT is a very personal experience.

For the last decade, Telemundo Media has been inspiring Latino high school students to stay in school, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working. A study by the Pew Research Center found that the number of Latino students not finishing high school has decreased almost 50 percent since 2000. Of course, the influence to graduate can come from various sources, but certainly Telemundoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;El Poder de Saber,â&#x20AC;? or, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The

Power of Knowledge,â&#x20AC;? might have helped with these numbers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;El Poder de Saberâ&#x20AC;? is an educational campaign that is spearheaded by influential Telemundo Media personalities, journalists and stars. This year, reporter Vanessa Hauc will be the initiativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokeswoman. Hauc, along with sports anchor Andres Cantor, journalist Carmen Dominicci and VJ Guadalupe Venegas, will partake in station-wide PSAs that aim to show high school students and their parents the importance of staying in school. Along with that message, they will be encouraging students to think about enrolling in college, too. The campaign will have

some very recognizable colleagues in the 2013-2014 run. The League of United Latin American Citizens as well as the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, for example, are showing their support for this stayin-school campaign. In addition, â&#x20AC;&#x153;El Poder de Saberâ&#x20AC;? will join forces with NBC Newsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Education Nation in New York this October. Education Nation is a three-day summit hosted by the New York Public Library where thought leaders and media join with attendees to discuss the state of education. The goal of the summit is to improve education for every student by speaking with influential leaders and policymakers. The nation has seen

CREATE YOUR OWN CAREER EXPERIENCE To succeed in the new world of work, you have to create your own educational experience. You need to be a lifelong learner, because the skills that the economy demands are constantly changing. In a new study by my company, in partnership with www.internships.com, we found that 69 percent of students believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s both their and their collegesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; responsibility to be prepared. Colleges can provide you with resources, but you need to be aggressive and tap into them. You also need to be accountable for your own career and leverage the tools and connections in front of you.

Use your collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alumni network Instead of walking into Use the Internet to ďŹ nd the right mentors 43 percent of students are looking for people to mentor them. Your mentors should be those who have a career and lifestyle that you aspire to. You can ďŹ nd them online using sites like www.linkedin.com and www.twellow.com

Many websites can further your education. / BLEND IMAGES

career services asking for them to review your resume and cover letter, ask them to make alumni introductions for you. You can learn about your desired job and have someone who can refer you to that position.

Use virtual learning tools There are many free and paid tools available to you at the click of your mouse. For example, www.udemy. com offers free or low-cost courses on a variety of topics, including social media and product development. The site www. coursera.org offers free courses from more than 30 top colleges.

Use conferences

to build relationships Forty percent of students believe that their reliance on technology has hurt their interpersonal skills, so get out there and meet people in real life. Use www.eventbrite.com and www.conferencealerts. com to find the right events to attend.

Use unpaid internships to get paid ones About 52 percent of students want better access to internships. The best way to get a paid internship is by taking an unpaid one, proving yourself and using the results to convince a company to pay you.

Do not expect more from friends and family than they have the right to expect from you. And if you think you’ll need maybe you should offer some.

Virgo | Aug. 23-Sept. 22. Intangibles are likely to confuse you, because you might not be able to grasp what they’re all about. Stick to what you can touch.

Sagittarius | Nov. 22Dec. 21. Someone you’re not fond of might lead you toward something beneficial. Don’t allow emotion to interfere.

Pisces | Feb. 19-March 20. Be careful, because ego could exert a strong influence on you, which could lead to poor judgment on your part.

Libra | Sept. 23-Oct. 22. Although you’re usually a pragmatic person, today you could be more of a daydreamer. Rely more on logic than on imagination.

his knees and kissed the spot where it landed. He tipped his cap to the raucous crowd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in Philly,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some great fans up here and I know they can be tough on you and they can love you forever.â&#x20AC;? This was his second hole-in-one. His first came at Goose Creek Country Club in his hometown of Baytown, Tex. He was 13. Ironically, the first hole-in-one at the Open was also on a Philadelphia-based club. Jack Hobens aced the 147-yard 10th hole at the Philadelphia Cricket Club in 1907. Officials from the USGA Museum wanted to save the lucky ball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hiding right now,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to save it.â&#x20AC;? Would he ever consider donating it in the future? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Depends on what they want to do with it,â&#x20AC;? Stefani said. He later added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a price for everything.â&#x20AC;?

Shawn Stefani lost his ball in the clouds. Then the crowd lost their minds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the crowd went crazy,â&#x20AC;? said Stefani, who finished in 60th place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew it went in.â&#x20AC;? Stefani hit a hole-inone on hole No. 17 yesterday during the final round of the U.S. Open at Merion. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first golfer to ace any hole at the Open at Merion. This is the fifth Open the course has hosted. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the 43rd ace in the majorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 113-year history. He smashed the ball with his 4-iron down the 229-yard, par-3 hole. It went over the flag, bounced in and then out of the rough, then rolled 50-feet across the green before it slipped into the cup. Stefani jumped when he heard the crowd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do but jump up and down for joy,â&#x20AC;? he said. As he approached the green, he dropped to

NBA trade winds are blowing hard NBA. The Lakers, Celtics and Clippers could make moves that change the league landscape. As each day passes it’s becoming less and less likely that Doc Rivers will return to the Boston Celtics for a 10th season as its head coach. The Celtics appear set to give up their highly respected coach in exchange for a package centered around Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan. Jordan averaged 8.8 points per game and 7.2 rebounds per game last season for L.A., but is believed to have All Star-caliber potential. Jordan was a 2008 second-round draft choice

out of Texas A&M and can jump out of the building. Kevin Garnett is expected to be the other piece of the deal that could accelerate the rebuilding process for Boston. Guard Eric Bledsoe could be the holdup for the Clippers in any potential deal as L.A. wants to have an insurance policy if star point guard Chris Paul leaves the team via free agency on or after July 1. Paul has recently been linked to Lakers center Dwight Howard as the two reportedly want to play together. An all-Los Angeles sign and trade involving Howard going to the Clippers would likely involve Blake Griffin donning the purple and gold.
