Godley was the daughter of Thomas and M.E. Godley. The Godleys were among the earliest settlers in Union, which was founded in 1862. Little Creek near Union was originally named Julianna Creek after the Godley's other daughter.

SUMMERVILLE — Sev­ eral Frontier customers on Summerville Road got a sur­ prise Friday when a Pend­ leton Grain Growers vehicle accidentally snapped the telephonelinesthatserviced their home phones. It was not a long-term problembecause the service techs were promptly there to fix things — and fix things they did. Since then these Summerville residents have had the next best thing to the old party lines, only they m ightbestbedescribed as tele-scrambled lines where each householder is receiving the other's phone calls. If that word isn't in the Webster's dictionary, it ought to be added under tele­ scramble, tele-scrambling and tele-scrambler. To make this perfectly clear, if you need to talk to the Yergeses, you have to dial the Abbotts, and if you need to reach the Olivers, then call the Yergeses. But if you need to reach the Abbotts, you can try calling the Olivers, but not at the Yerges' actual number. If you dial the Olivers to reach the Abbotts phone line that still won't work because the Abbotts' phone line has been dangling from the pole since Friday.

Gravesites now easier to locate

By Dick Mason All cemeteries are shrouded, at least in a small sense, by figurative veils of mystery. These veils, however, are now a bit smaller for people visiting any of La Grande's three cemeteries. Maps have recently been installed by the La Grande Cemetery Maintenance District at Hillcrest East, Hillcrest West and Grandview cemeteries. The maps are guiding visitors to the gravesites of fiiends and loved ones. See Maps / Page 3A

In other words, to reach the Storygirl at the Yerges residence with a story lead forthe Observer,don'tcall the Yerges' number un­ less you want to talk to the ex-sheriff, who on the other hand, might be more inter­ esting to talk to actually. However, if you truly need to reach the Olivers, then by all means call the Yergeses. Calling the Olivers' actual number will only make their phone ring 'til the cows come home. Now,ifyouneed some transport work done by the Abbotts, then don' t call the Yergeses unless you also have some art you want framed or you want your name put in the Observer. You' ll need to call the Ab­ botts directly on their cell phone, that is, if you happen to have their unpublished number. Perhaps just for the weekend, we should all have changed our phone messages. Mine might say: "Hello, you have dialed the Abbotts but have reached the Yergeses. Sorry they aren't at our home to take your call just now. I'm sure your call is impor­ tanttothem, sopleaseleave a message, and we' ll tell the Abbotts as soon as we find a way to call them."

Heel Pain f you find that you are having difficulty getting out of bed in the morningbecause of heel pain, you may have plantar fasci­ itis. The plantar fascia is the tight band of ligament that makes up the archof your foot. It can be unusually tight because of high arched feet, or o ver-stretched because of flat or pronating (turn­ ing in) feet. In either case, the ligament or fascia gets strained because of constant tension. After resting through the night, the liga­ ment tightens to remind you on that first step that you have a sore heel. Of all t h e f oo t p r oblems encountered, it i s e s pecially important to seek early treatment for heelpain. Recovery is much quicker with early intervention. If the pain is chronic, then there is sometimes a struggle to get the heel back to normal in a timely manner. Several treatments exist for heel pain. There are medicines that can be prescribed to help with the pain and inflammation. A reg­

Another cause could be an unusu­ ally large spur or bone promi­ nence onthe heel.In many older adults, a loss of the fatty padding to the heel can be the source of discomfort. The bottom line? Your heel should not be interfering with your activity level. If you suffer from heel pain, perhaps it is time to get it evaluated.

rOVi es With presidential candidates cutting each other to ribbons trying to get themselves elected, wildfires burning out of control across the Pacific Northwest, and Forest Service oKcials and enviros engaging in a dreary court battle over control of noxious weeds here at home, newspaper readers sure could use a happy diversion. Count on baseball to provide one. Wednesday in Seattle, Felix Hernandez took the mound againsttheTampa Bay Rays and proceeded to write himself into the history books. For Tampa Bay, it was 27 up and 27 down as Hernandez twirled a 1-0 masterpiece, the first ever perfect game in Mariner franchise history. This has happened only 23 times in all the history of Major League baseball, and every time it does happen, all the world has a hero to look up to, if only for a little while. Maybe what we admire most is the way the pitcher grows better, stronger, more sure of himself the closer he gets to his nearly impossible

goal. Hernandez struck out 12 Rays, eight of them in the last four innings. His curve ball never lost its snap, and his fastball was still zipping along at 95 in the last inning. From start to finish, the 2010 Cy Young winner was a picture of determination, a m odel of focus. For Major League fans in Union County, this is an occasion for celebration. If someone from St. Louis or Denver or New York City had done it, it wouldn' t mean half as much. Many here consider the Mari­ ners their team, follow them avidly on television and get away to Safeco for a game whenever the chance comes up. And you' ve got to admit, there isn't always a lot to cheer about when it comes to the M's. Currently this

year, they' re at the bottom of their division. It's own noted they haven't been to the playoA's since 2001, when theywent on a rampage and won 116 games. But no, they didn't get to the Series that season. Come to think of it, they never have. They do field their share of heroes, though, individ­ uals who with stellar play keep us tuning in. Over the years we' ve all thrilled to the standout perfor­ mances of guys like Jay Buhner, Alvin Davis, Edgar Martinez, and, of course, the great Ichiro. The Mariners have their moments, and what a moment they had Wednesday with Hernandez. It' s enough to make anybody forget that these are the dog days of summer, smack in the middle of an elec­ tion year.

ate s eec on ate rou s uman Rights Campaign, the nation's largestgay rightsorga­ nization, posted an alerton its blog Tuesday: "Paul Ryan Speaking at Hate Group's Annual Conference." The "hate group" that the Republi­ cans' vice presidential candidate would be addressing? The Family Research Council, a mainstream conservative think tank founded by James Dobson and run for many years by Gary Bauer. The day after the gay rights group's alert went out, 28-year-old Floyd Lee Corkins II walked into the Family Research Council's Washington head­ quarters and, according to an FBI affidavit, proclaimed words to the effect of "I don't like your politics" — and shot the security guard. Corkins, who had re­ cently volunteered at a gay community center, was carrying a 9mm handgun, a box of ammunition and a backpack full of Chick-fil-A — the company whose president recently spoke out against gay marriage. Mercifully, the gunman was re­ strained, and nobody was killed. When I walked by the Family Research Council building at 8th and G streets NW on Thursday afternoon, things were returning to normal. Outside the main doors, above which is inscribed the group's "Faith, Family, Freedom" motto, some discarded yellow police tape lay on the sidewalk. Attention to the incident had already begun to fade. That's unfortunate, because this shooting should remind us all of an important truth: that while much of the political anger in America today lies on the right, there are unbalanced and potentially violent people of all political persuasions. The rest of us need to be careful about hurling accusations that can stir up the crazies.

La Grande Boy Scout Brian Walker has completed an Eagle project, which is a big step toward helping extinguish the overall forest fire danger in the Mount Emily Recreation Area. Walker, a member of Troop 586, in­ stalled 11 two-foot-deep fire rings ipitsl at the MERA campground on Fox Hill as part of his Eagle project. The fire ringsare linedwith corrugated steel and surrounded by rocks. Walker, the son of Bud and Kris Walker, installed the fire rings to help decreasethe risk offorestfi res.He said that many people using the camp­ groundsetup campfireson theground, which could easily ignite surrounding tinderand vegetation. Walker positioned the fire rings so that when the wind blows smoke from fires, it will not bother people at other campfire sites. The state fire marshal was consulted before the fire rings were installed to make sure they would best reduce fire danger. The new fire rings are not being used now because campfires are prohibited by the state due to high forest fire dan­ ger. However, itisanticipated thatthe fire rings will be used extensively once fire restrictions are lifted. 'This is a major improvement to the campground. It means we can now responsibly have campfires," said Union County Parks Coordinator Sean Chambers. Two of the fire rings are adjacent to the parking area of the campground. Chambers said they were badly needed because people had been randomly building fires in the parking lot. They sometimes burned items like wood with nails. The nails would remain after the fire was out, creating a hazard for people using the parking lot.

Dick Mason /The Observer

La Grande Boy Scout Brian Walker is shown with one of the 11 fire rings he constructed at the MERA campground on Fox Hill. Walker did his work with much help from scouts in his troop, its adult lead­ ers Lloyd Berry and Rick Isaacson, and family members. Walker and those as­ sisting him at the MERA campground also: • trimmed trees in the camping area and removed debris, some of which were a fire hazard. • m oved boulders to block m otor vehicles from areas where they are prohibited. • installed gravel pathways to each fire ring. • putup signsdirectingpeopleto the campground. "This was a big effort, which took a lot of manpower. They stepped up for the county and its parks to get this done," Chambers said. Walker, 15, will be a sophomore this fall at La Grande High School, where he is an honor student. His hobbies include golf, all-terrain vehicle and

motorcycle riding, cooking, Chinese language study and traveling. When Walker becomes an Eagle Scout, he will be adding to a notewor­ thy family legacy for his two older brothers, Buddy and Benjamin, earlier became Eagle Scouts. Two years ago Benjamin installed ATV loading ramps at MERA for his Eagle project. Brian Walker's youngest brother, Brixtin, recently entered scouting and alsoaspires to become an Eagle Scout. Community partners assisting Walker included Union County Parks Coordinator Sean Chambers, R.D. Mac Inc., Mitch Williams of the Oregon Department of Forestry, Mat Barber of Grande Ronde Sign Co., Russell Lester of Eastern Oregon Title and D & B

Supply of Island City. Chambers said Walker and those who helped are among volunteers whose efforts are making a major dif­ ference in the development of MERA.

Karen said she had some expectations from thistrip. "I want to know lots about the culture of the United States," said Karen. "I'm studying American culture and world history right now so this will help me. I also want to speak English correctly." Kazuki's host, Brent Car­ role, an Elgin High School teacher, said that he and his wife were going to take Ka­ zuki to see the city of Joseph and also take the tram to Mount Howard and to see Wallowa Lake. The Carroles also plan to take Kazuki to see the sights in Seattle and Tacoma. Steve and Kathy Oliver also had plans since the girls wanted to go shopping as soon as possible. eWe're also going to Yach­

ats next week," said Oliver. Karen, though, reminded him that she had a special request. "Don't forget I want to see the jail," she told the former sheriff. Oliver said he had already handcuffed the girls' wrists, so that's one unusual experi­ ence they will be sure to share with their teachers, family and schoolmates back home. They all had a good laugh out of that; however, the future diplomat, Karen, has seriously requested a tour of the county jail. Get­ ting a rare inside view of county law enforcement in America with the help of a former Sheriff is an unusual opportunity for Karen — and she could find no better tour guide than Steve Oliver.

GARDEN GUIDE JENNIE HAGEN

By Bill Daley Chicago Tnbune

Enrich your knowled e: Harvest t e

crop at the Extension

Service If you'd like to can, &eeze or dry your garden produce this year but are new to the artoffood preservation,an excel­ lent resource is the Extension Service through Oregon State University. Local offices are on North McAllister in Island City or in Baker City at 2600 East St., where a wealth of information is avail­

able. Or if you'd prefer to peruse the exten­ sivelistofgarden ornaturalresource materials, go to their website at http/I extension.oregonstate.edu and begin your search there. While many of their publicati ons areBee,the costforsom e of the brochures and papers is very minimal, usually no more than a dollar or two. Most can be downloaded imme­ diately and are very informative. For regular readers of this column, you' ll recall my report of our sad peach trees a year ago being infected with both peach leaf curl and fire blight. Although they fruited quite heavily, fruits were consistently small and of poor quality. Horticultural dormant oil spray was applied this past winter and we have seen a remarkable transforma­ tion in the trees. A yearago thetreeslooked so pathet­ ic, yellow and red leaves, weeping stems. What a difference a year has made, and just through the simple application of the dormant oil spray. All of the trees are fully leafed out with no sign of blight or curl and have been producing quality fruitforus. But as the label implies, dormant oil spray must be applied when the trees are completely dormant. Applications of the oil spray on leaves will stop the circulatory and photosynthesis process so it must be applied when the trees are dormant. For owners "When the fish are

time to supply them withjesh water!

forgetto give your water gardens fresh cold water on these very hot days. Shallow ponds or planter barrels with fish can have a devastating effect on their circulatory system when water temperaturesareelevatedfor any length of time. Fresh water supplied daily will also increase the oxygen satu­ ration in the pond or planter. Fountains or bubblers, while creating increased oxygen levels, won't sutfi­ ciently cool the water for optimum fish health and survival. And while pond plants can provide some shade and cover, small ponds or planters will still see an unhealthy rise in temperature as the surrounding air heats the surface or containers. We have successfully had the same seven fish in a plastic barrel planter for years now, but they are not necessarily low maintenance. When air temperatures hover above 95 and the fish are all up at the surface gasping, it's past time to supply them with mesh water! The hottest part of the day is the best time for fresh water applications if at all possible. So until next time, enjoy the warmth of ourdays and the bounty Rom your garden.

Vanilla pudding can bring out the kid in you, especially as it conjures up memories of those huge institutional cans cranked open in summer camp dining halls or the tiny cups your mom would tuck into your school lunchbox. Partofthe appealofvanilla pudding lies in its simplicity. It personifies the nostalgic flavors of childhood. Yet, vanilla pudding can be a key ingredient in more complicateddessertsdesigned to please adults, treats like tarts and trifles and homemade ice pops. That's due to the clean, clear flavor you get, especially Rom homemade versions. Alice Medrich, a baker and teacher living in Berkeley, Calif., says vanilla pudding serves as a valuablebackdrop forother flavors, whether that's a nutmeg­ spiced tart shell, a sprinkling of crumbledtoffee on top or a spoon­

ful of mesh fiuit. Vanilla pud­ ding is also a superb showcase, naturally, for that distinctive vanilla flavor. 'Vanilla pudding is bland in a delicious way," says Medrich, author of"Sinfully Easy Delicious

Desserts "iArtisan,$25. 95l Shaina Olmanson, the Falcon Heights, Minn.-based writer of the "Food for My Family" blog, also zeros in on the "creamy sweetness" ofvanilla pudding that"putsa period attheend of the meal." "It's like vanilla ice cream," says Olmanson, author of"Des­ serts in Jars: 50 Sweet Treats That Shine" iHarvard Common

Press, $16.95l."It'ssim ple,sweet and satisfies the need you have forthatlastsw eetbite." While vanilla pudding can be a nostalgi creminder for"those in the older age groups when parents made real pudding," Medrich says vanilla pudding appeals to all generations today as adelicious,no-fussdessert. That vanilla pudding can be made without eggs is especially

appealing. "For the new cook or a cook scaredofeggsit'seasy to m ake. They don't have to worry about the eggs curdling," she says. Cooks can control the richness by using half-and-half or cream instead of milk, if they want to use adairy product atall. "I'm certain, though I haven' t done it, you could make vanilla pudding without dairy using coconut or hemp milk," Med­ rich says, suggesting cooks also experiment with diferent sugars, like brown or raw. "The key to vanilla pudding, I think, is to let it shine," Olman­ son says. "Use great vanilla. The better the quality the better the taste."

uses this egg-free vanilla pud­ ding as a tart filling topped with a dried cherry compote in her book "Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts" (Artisan, $25.95). You may use a sauce made with fresh cherries instead, or garnish with fresh fruit and, perhaps, a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Medrich uses Tahitian vanilla in the pudding for its "exotic flavor and nuances of cherry," she writes. You may substitute Mexican or Bourbon vanilla for the Tahitian, or use a vanilla bean: Heat the milk and cream with a whole vanilla bean until steaming hot, cover and let steep 15 minutes. Remove the bean, set aside and proceed with the recipe. You can also serve this pudding without the tart shell, plain or dressed up in a parfait.

Each cookie is garnished w ith coat a ing ofdry-roasted peanuts around the edge. It' s like a little bit of peanut but­ ter heaven with every bite.

1. In the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attach­ ment, or in a large bowl using a hand mixer, cream the butter over medium speed just until creamy. Add the sugars to the butter and cream together, careful not to over-mix. Scrape down the bowl to make sure the sugars and butter are

Michael Caine of Enterprise won the 10K race Saturday in a time of 39:43.

COVE — Michael Caine almost missed the start of the annual Cove Cherry Festival 10-kilometer Saturday. He didn't miss the finish. The 36-year-old Enterprise resident won the race back from High Valley to Highway 203 just west of Cove. He made the trip from Enterprise to Cove andbarely made the bus taking 23 competitors to the starting line in High Valley with just seconds to spare. Caine pulled away steadily early in the race to build a two-minute cushion and win in 39:43 — in front of second­ placer Riley Sheehy of Union. According to Caine, it was a good course but he re­ ally noticed the uphill part early. He also noticed the dust kicked up by cars on the dirt road because of the extreme dry weather recently. Caine still admitted he wants to return next year. Riley Sheehy was one of a group of runners in the race from Union High School and his 41:44 time for the 6.2­ mile course gave him bragging rights in the family as well as among other mem­ bers of the Bobcats' cross country team.

Oregon out of SEATTLE iAPl — Michael Saunders is showing signs of snapping out of his terrible slump. Saunders hit a two-run homer, Blake Beavan pitched into the sixth inning and the Seattle Mariners beat the Minnesota Twins 5-1 on Sunday for their fifth straight victory. Seattle completed a three­ game series sweep and has won 12 of 13 at Safeco Field. Minne­ sota lost its fikh in a row. The Mariners held a slim 2-1 lead before Saunders drove a 1-0 pitch from Jeff Gray over the wall in right in the seventh. Dustin Ackley, who led ofF with a double, was aboard for Saunders' career-best 11th homer. Saunders went 5 for 12 in the seriesagainst Minnesota to raise his August batting average to

.155. "I was certainly struggling there for a while," he said. "I wastrying toohard,over­ swinging, trying to do more than I was capable of doing. I just triedto back toground zero." Ground zero, for Saunders, is hisrefi gured swing honed dur­ ing the offseason. He came into the season with a.196 career average in three years with the Mariners but gotofFto a strong startin 2012. He was hitting as high as .282 in mid-June but has been on a steady decline since. "Everyone goes through slumps now and then. Mine was too long," he said. "I felt like I needed to ease ofF the ease-o-meter." He was mired in a 2-for-42 rut before the Twins came to town. Sunday's homer was his first

Mariners manager Eric Wedge said he is pleased with Saunders' season and added: "He'sgoing tobe better.He'sa completeplayer. "He helps us win so many different ways. I' ve been very pleased with him. He's just scratching the surface." Beavan i8-7l also is showing some progressaftera fi rst-half demotion to the minors. Since being recalled Rom Triple-A Tacoma, he is 5-1 with a 3.74 ERA in six starts. "It's so much easier when you throw good pitches," said Beavan, who allowed one run and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings against the Twins. "I'm just trying to make one pitch at a time and go from there." Samuel Deduno i4-1l issued six walks in six innings for Min­ nesota, but limited Seattle to two runs and five hits. Trevor PloufFe put the Twins in front with a sacrifice fly in the second inning, but the Mariners took advantage of Deduno's wild­ ness to take the lead in the third. Ackley reached on a leadofF walk and Saunders singled to center. Deduno then issued consecutive walks to Kyle Seager and John Jaso to force home a

Beavan said the Twins, known for patience and plate discipline, played into his hands. "I'm not fi ustrated at all," he said. "I don't mind patient hitters. "It's easierform e togetahead. They fouled a lot of balls ofF today. They were patient but there w ere aggressi ve.Ithink alot of guys change their approach when I face them." The Twins were 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position, and

manager Ron Gardenhire said: "They pitched well but we missed out on a lot of opportuni­ ties...W egotpeople outthere and couldn't get anybody in." The Twins finally chased Beavan in the sixth after one-out singles by Justin Morneau and Ryan Doumit. Carter Capps came in and walked PloufFe to load the bases, then struck out Matt Carson and retired Pedro Florimon to end the inning. After Saunders' home run, the Mariners added one more in the seventh on Eric Thames' RBI double.

Leadoff hitter Emil Matti hit two solo homers and scored four runs to lead Parsippany, N.J., to a 10-4 victory over Gresham, Ore., on Sat­ urday night in the Little League World Series. Matti hit both shots to center, including a blastto lead ofFthe game that caromed ofFthe top of the brick wall beyond the fence 225 feet away. The 13-yearold shorstop did hisbest impersonation of Yankees leadofF hitter Derek Jeter for the New Jersey team from the New York suburb of Parsippany. And New Jersey's vocal fans chanted the names of each of their favorite sons as they strode to the plate as if they were Yankee Stadium "Bleacher Creatures." Manager Mike Ruggiero called Matti a steady, five-tool player. "I was hitting the ball, and whatever they gave me," Matti said with a slight smile after the game. Trailing 5-0 in the second, Oregon cut it to 5-4 in the third on Tyler Linch's two-run single. But Linch was later tagged out at home after trying to score the potential tying run on a grounder to second. 'They definitely started swinging the bats like we' ve been waiting for them to do," Oregon manager Jason Trickel said.eWe were just one good swing from tying up the game." Reliever Kyle Phillips quieted Oregon the rest of the way with four shutout innings. D.J. Pico added a two-run homer — his first all season — for New Jersey, while Ezra Samperi had a two-run single in the second inning for Oregon. Oregon will play Uganda in a consolation game Tuesday after being eliminated Rom contention.

John Boyett. "I think we have talent here and Kelly contends the defense

should have gotten more media attention in each of the past three seasons. He batted away a sugges­ tion that the Ducks add heavier players instead of prioritizing speed and stamina. eWe have guys that go up to 295 and 300, and they run as well as anybody in the country," Kelly said. "And I think it works for our de­ fense. Personally, we don't want the big, slow clunky guys that get tired after two plays." The question marks are on the ofFensive side of the ball, but fans and pundits believe Kelly has the answers. The coach said he won't name a replacement for quarterback Dar­

ron Thomas until the end of August practices. Thomas was 23-3 as a starterbefore leaving early forthe NFL draft. Bryan Bennett, a 6-foot-3 sophomore, played well in limited duty last season, throwing for 369 yards and six touchdowns with no interceptions. But Marcus Mariota, a 6-foot-4 redshirt freshman Rom Honolulu, outplayed Bennett in the spring game,setting up the position battle ahead of the Sept. 1 season opener against Arkansas State. Kelly said heisn'topposed to playing both quarterbacks, but expects one QB to emerge during camp as the obvious choice. "I can't give you a concrete thing — a 'Hey, I need to see this," he said "It's always been which guy moves the offense better." Besides finding a new quarter­ back, the Ducks must replace the most prolific running back in school history in LaMichael James, who also left for the NFL after

his junior season. Kenjon Barner will get a chance to be the primary running back after backing up James the last three seasons. The senior has rushed for 1,856 yards and 20 TDs in his career, including 939 yards and 11 TDs last season on 152 carries. Also returning is sophomore De'Anthony Thomas, whose spec­

tacular freshman season included 595 yards rushing, 605 yards receiv­ ing, 2,235 all-purpose yards and 18 TDs overall. How much more can he do? "Hopefully a lot," Kelly said. "There are some things he's done in practice that you kind of just go, eWow."

"Foratruefreshman tocom ein and play receiver and running back and to be able to handle both those roles speaks a lot to his football acu­ men," Kelly added. "He's a smart kid, understands concepts well and we' ll keep adding to his plate a little bit."

Seahawks spoil Manning's home debut with 30-10 victory DENVER iAPl — Peyton Man­ ning drew his biggest ovation on an incompletion. Blasted by defensive end Bruce Irvin, the four-time MVP who missed all of last season with a neck injury that required four operations bounced right back up, shook it ofF and threw a 22-yard bullet to Bran­ don Stokley on the next play. It was the highlight of a mostly forgettable home debut for Man­ ning, whose Broncos lost 30-10 to the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday night after Denver's backups were outscored 21-0. Manning had shown through­ out training camp that his arm strength was back along with his accuracy. The only question left was whether he could take a hard hit af­ ter undergoing neck fusion surgery lastSeptember. The answer came with 1:25 left in the first half when Irvin beat right tackle Orlando Franklin and had a clean shot at the quarterback. "I came into the game trying to be the first one to get a shot on him since he's been back and I guess I succeeded," Irvin said."He'sa great quarterback, got the ball out quick and it's hard to get to him. I just put on a good move and just so hap­ pened to get through."

Welcome back to the NFL, Peyton. "He didn't say anything. He moaned a little bit, though," Irvin said. "So I guess he really felt it. It was a good hit, good play and now it's time to move on." Manning's sentiments, too, after his first hit in 19 months. "I never heard a crowd cheer for an incompletion before," Manning said. "I think the next pass was to Stokley, right? That's what I told you I was going to do." Indeed, Manning had been say­ ing for weeks that he only hoped that first big hit happened on first or second down so he could bounce back up and complete a long pass. He couldn't decide what was better, getting that initial big blast out of the way or putting a halt to all the questions about whether he could still take a hit. "Both of them are just fine with me," Manning said. As the ball sailed out of bounds, M anningpopped right back up and the crowd went wild. eWe weren't worried about it. I think everybody else was," Stokley said. "Now, we don't have to hear about that anymore." Instead, they can concentrate on all the mistakes they' ve been mak­

ing with Manning under center.

The first was behind him, the second was over his head, the third was knocked away by Elvis Dumer­ vil and then cornerback Champ Bailey broke up a slant pass. The fifth incompletion was all on Owens.

Branquinho big winner at 78th annual Caldwell Night Rodeo CALDWELL, Idaho — When Luke Branquinho entered the 78th Annual Caldwell Night Rodeo, the reigning world champion steer wrestlers was in 13th place in the world standings. That's an unfamiliar place for the 10-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier. The top 15 at the end of the regular season make thetri p to LasVegas to compete in rodeo's championship event and the only time that Branquinho has missed out has been due to injury. The Los Alamos, Calif., resident had to take a hard look at what was goingon in the arena and found inspiration outside of the arena. Just one week ago, he told his wife Lindsay that he was going to look at the rest of the year as a new season and start everything fresh. That worked for him here as he was the big winner at this year' s rodeo and the $8,311 couldn't have come at a better time. He won the first round, tied for second in the second and came into the final round with a one-second advantage. He stopped the clock in 5.5 sec­ onds on Saturday night and while it didn't get him a check in the final round it was certainly fast enough to win him the title with a total of 14.1 seconds on three steers. "My horses have been working good all year, I' ve felt good, but just couldn't get everything to click," Branquinho said. "I decided I needed to just look at it like it was a new season and run one steer at a time. So far it's working."

Branquinho was not the only reigning world champion to earn a championship here. Kaycee Feild, Rom Payson, Utah, earned his first gold buckle last December and his first Caldwell title on Saturday night. He rode two horses here for

The money he earned here, $5,450, should move him into the top 15 and if he maintains that he will be headed to his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

Shortstop Alcides Escobar fielded Konerko's grounder on the outfield grass and his one-hop throw was dropped by first baseman Eric Hosmer.

Oregon State could be facing pivotal season on gridiron CORVALLIS iAPl — After two years of decline, this new season couldprove tobe a pivotalonefor the Oregon State football program and coach Mike Riley. After finishing 3-9 last year­ the Beavers never really recovered from a shocking upset by lower­ division Sacramento State in the opener — Oregon State has fallen to depths not seen in Corvallis since Riley's first stint as head coach in the late1990s.Afterguiding the Beavers to six bowl games in his first seven years since returning in 2003, Riley failed to get his team to the postseason in 2010 and 2011. The question is whether the slide is indicative of a downward trend for a team that is not keeping up in the Pac-12 or just a confluence of unfortunate circumstances. The Pac-12media have casta votefor the former, picking the Beavers to finish last in the North Division. For now it's a question without an answer. But following the example of their always-optimistic coach, the Beavers were upbeat early

While the Beavers' ofFense had diKculty running the ball in 2011, the defense had serious problems stopping the run. Oregon State gave up nearly 200 yards a game on the ground, which was worst in the con­ ference and among the worst in the nation. Riley has also referenced third-down defense i10th in the conference) and red-zone defense i8thl as specific areas where the Beavers need to improve. Oregon State should be set at defensive end with the return of Dylan Wynn and Scott Crichton, two playmakers who made a splash as true freshmen. The interior is more the concern. Seniors Andrew Seumalo and 354-pounder Castro Masaniai have experience, but the bench is thin. Depth is also an issue at linebacker, where starters Feti Unga and Michael Doctor return, likely to be joined by sophomore speedster D.J. Welch.

The 31-year-old Swiss star has en­ joyed many of his one-week visits. None was better than the latest. "Looking back, it's just unbelievable," Federer said. "This was probably the best week for me here in Cincinnati. I didn't lose a set. This is very sweet, no doubt about it." Federer heads to the U.S. Open feel­ ing healthy and fine-tuned. He skipped the Rogers Cup in Toronto last week, giving himself some time to recover from the Olympics in London. He's also regained the upper hand against one of the players who stands in his way. Djokovic had put together a run of three straight wins over Federer in tournament semifinals, starting with the U.S. Open last year. Federer turned it around by beating the Serb in the semis at Wimbledon last month. They got together in a finals match for the seventh time in their careers Sunday.

championship match — the U.S. Open in 2007. Quickly, the latest one became a bit of personal history. They' ve never had such a lopsided day together on the court. Ranked No. 1 and No. 2, perhaps, but worlds apart on this day. Federer won the first set in only 20 minutes, allowing Djokovic just 10 points. It was the first time in their 28 career matches that one of them took a set6-0.Forperspective,Federerhadn't beatenanybody 6-0in a tournament final since 2007. Both players seemed a bit stunned. "I was hoping for a good start, but not likethat,"Federer said. Perhaps Djokovic's schedule had something to do with it. After the Olym­ pics, he went right to Toronto and won the Rogers Cup last Sunday. He didn' t expect to make it to a second final in eight days. "It was a final today, so I really wanted to win," Djokovic said. 'There is no question about it. Maybe playing couple weeks in a row, four weeks in a row, got to me maybe mentally. "Physically it didn' t. I felt OK on the court. Both reached the final in a dominat­ ing style — neither losttheirserveor a set during the week. Federer put an end to that right away.

Djokovic couldn't touch with that new racket. It was domination all around­ Djokovic had 10 unforced errors in the opening set, the same number of points he won. The Serb had four double­ faults, each one setting up a break point or ending a game. The fans gave Djokovic a loud ovation when he held serve to open the second set. The Serb looked up at the crowd and smiled while sipping water. Djokovic showed more energy in the second set but never put much pres­ sure on Federer, who didn't face a break point. After a forehand sailed way long, Djokovic raised hisarms, reared back and screamed. Now fully engaged in the match, he took the set to a tiebreaker. Djokovic survived one match point and got one point away from taking the tiebreaker. Federerran ofFthe lastthree points, closing it out with a forehand. "At the end, I just snatched it," Fe­ derer said. Federer improved to 5-0 in Cincin­ nati finals and tied Rafael Nadal for the most Masters titles with 21. Nadal dropped out of the tournament with a sore knee that has sidelined him indefinitely. The loss snapped Djokovic's streak of 15 straight wins on hard courts, an encouraging sign heading into the Open. He figured the only thing lacking for New York was a little rest. "I feel good on the court," Djokovic said. "The conditions here are quite different from the U.S. Open. It's a bit slower there, which I think goes in my favor a little bit more. More suitable to my style of the game. "I'm going to have a week that I think is very necessary for me right now mentally and physically."

The Levinsons, who did not respond to messages Sunday, told the Daily News that Nunez was a "paid con­ sultant" of their agency. "The MLBPA has clearly stated that ACES has no connection to the website or this matter and, as reported, Juan Nunez has taken full responsibility for his acts," Seth Levinson told The Associated Press.

"There is nothing more we can add and we will allow our reputation in the industry for 27 years to speak for itself." The second baseball official said MLB intends to ask the Major League Baseball Players Associa­ tion, which regulates agents, to fol­ low up on the situation at ACES. Cabrera was enjoying the best seasonofhisbig league career, helping the Giants contend for a postseason berth. He was hitting .346 with 11 hom­ ers and 60 RBIs, but will miss the restoftheregular season and the start of the playotfs, if the Giants advance that far.

rus eso sanctionsto e o. in

NEW YORK iAPl — Southern

California is No. 1 in the AP Top 25, tossing off the weight of NCAA sanctions and returning to a famil­ iar place in the rankings — with a boost Rom LSU's problems. USC earned the top spot in The Associated Press'preseason college football poll for the seventh time in school history and the first time in five seasons, edging out No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 LSU. The Trojans, who were banned from postseason play the past two seasons, received 25 ofapossible 60 first-place votes Rom a media panel in a close vote. USC received 1,445 points. Defending national champi­ on Alabama had 17 first-place votes and 1,411 points while LSU, the Crimson Tide's SEC rival, got 16 irst-placevotesand 1,402points. f ''We definitely didn't come here to be underdogs," Trojans safety T J. McDonald said Saturday. "The ranking doesn't mean we' ve done anything as a team. But it's good to see we' re back where we' re sup­ posed to be." Oklahoma was fourth with a sin­ gle first-place vote and Oregon was fifth. Michigan, at No. 8, received the only other first-place vote. The Tigers were poised to start the season No. 1 before Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu got kicked off the team a week ago. In light of that development, the AP extended the voting deadline. Before Mathieu was dismissed, reportedly for failed drug tests, LSU had recei ved 28 ofa possible 60 first-place votes. USC was a close second with 22 first-place votes and Alabama was third with nine. The USA Today coaches' poll, which was released Aug. 2, had LSU at No. 1, followed by Alabama

and USC. Rounding out the top 10 in the AP rankings, Georgia was No. 6, followed by Florida State and Michigan. No. 9 South Carolina and No. 10 Arkansas give the SEC half of the first 10 teams. For the Trojans, their return to

'Tyrann Mathieu's a terrific player, but I don't think the overall effect will change LSU's results," said John Silver from the Journal Inquirer of Connecticut, who did not change his ballot after the Mathieu news.

"To be handed down what they said could be a death penalty, could take USC 10 years to come back Rom, then to have this recogni­ tion and be preseason No. 1 is very exciting for our fans because a lot people thought two years ago that this would not be possible for USC," coach Lane Kiffin told the AP. Ki5n was an assistant coach for USC during its last great run. From 2001-09 under coach Pete Carroll, the Trojans won two national titles and playedfora third,m ade seven straight BCS appearances and had three Heisman Trophy winners in Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush. But Carroll left for the NFL after the 2009 season and Kiffin was hired to replace him. A few months later the NCAA hit USC with a two-year bowl ban, plus scholarship limitati ons and probationbecause Bush and his family received im­ permissible benefits. USC went 8-5 in 2010, then charged back to 10-2 last season.

And when star quarterback Matt Barkley decided to stick around forhisseniorseason instead of entering the NFL draft, the Trojans, free Rom the bowl ban, were set to make a run at No. 1. 'There's not a roof over our heads now," McDonald said. And USC is once again trendy in Los Angeles. "Do you feel that? Sure you do," Ki5n said. "Games already sold out. Just the energy around it. All those diferent things. That's how it was before. I' ve talked to these play­ ers about it." With Barkley, the preseason Heisman favorite, along with receiv­ ers Robert Woods and Marqise Lee, plus running backs Curtis McNeal and Penn State transfer Silas Redd, these Trojans have drawn compari­ sonstothose greatoffenses. 'They are going to be successful because of the work they put in and not because of the hype," Kitfm said. If USC has questions, it's on the defensive side, where the line is thin and the pass defense was spotty last season. Those potent Pac-12 offenses will provide plenty of tests, none stiffer than on Nov. 3

when Oregon comes to the Coli­ seum for the first of a possible two contests with the Trojans. USC and Oregon could also meet in the Pac-12 title game. Trojans-Ducks might be only the second-biggest game of the day on Nov. 3. That will also be the day of Round III of Alabama-LSU, after the Tide and Tigers played twice last season, the second time in the BCS title game. Alabama won the rematch 21-0 to take its second national title in the last three seasons under coach Nick Saban. The Tide are rebuild­ ing on defense, but return quarter­ back A.J. McCarron and one of the best offensive lines in the country. LSU has a new quarterback, Zach Mettenberger, who the Tigers hope will give the passing game more punch, and much of last year' s fearsomedefenseisback — except Mathieu. The defensive back nicknamed Honey Badger became a surprising Heisman contender with a slew of game-changing plays last season. He scored four touchdowns, two on punt returns and two on

"On the one hand, he wasn't ex­ actly known as a lock-down corner­ back and LSU has plenty of other talent. On the other hand, I was in the Georgia Dome last year when Mathieu single-handedly turned the tide of the SEC championship," Emerson wrote on his blog. "He's a dynamic player. There's a reason he was fifth in the Heisman voting. 'That's why I moved LSU to third, but not any further down." The rest of the Top 25 was heavy on Big 12 and Big Ten teams. Big 12 newcomer West Virginia was 11th, followed by Big Ten rivals Wisconsin and Michigan State. The Big 12 also placed Texas iNo.

15l, Oklahoma State iNo. 19l, TCU iNo. 20l and Kansas State iNo. 22l in the rankings to give the league six teams overall, matching the SEC for the most. Florida is ranked No. 23. The Big Ten added Nebraska
