Dozens of Alaskans compete in weekend archery tournament
Herring return in significant numbers to Auke Bay C
JUNEAU — Pacific herring are returning to Auke Bay to spawn in the most significant numbers seen in decades. Whether the fishery is becoming healthier won’t be seen until scientists see if the eggs are fertilized and if they survive. The Juneau Empire reports Lynn Canal herring stocks have been depressed for decades. For the past seven years until recently, first Lynn Canal and then Southeast herring stocks were under consideration for listing as an endangered species, but neither population was deemed distinct enough for the listing. The herring fishery closed in Lynn Canal and around Juneau in 1982. Marine ecologist Michelle Ridgway says she has seen more female herring this summer, but is still looking for males. Other challenges for the fishery include water quality and temperature. — The Associated Press

With a traditional longbow in hand, Kenai resident John Lindgren felt like a kid again walking through the woods target shooting during a two-day archery tournament in Soldotna over the Fourth of July weekend. His form slow and deliberate, Lindgren placed a carbon arrow on the string and pulled back and held for several seconds to line up his shot before he fired a strike through a bull moose that stood 40 yards away. If the moose weren’t a life-size foam 3-D target, it would have been a kill shot, struck in a vital artery. “It’s a fun sport similar to playing a round of golf except you walk through the woods and shoot arrows at targets,” Lindgren said. Lindgren was one of 76 archers from around the state that competed in the annual Independence Day Marked 3-D Archery Shoot Saturday and Sunday, hosted by the Kenai Peninsula Archery Club at its 53-acre range in Soldotna. Club treasurer Steven Latz said the Independence Day Shoot is the biggest and most popular in the state. It attracts See BOW, page A-7
Tram conductor gives Tlingit lessons on ride By MARY CATHARINE MARTIN Capital City Weekly
JUNEAU — John Perkins starts his daily journeys up Mount Roberts with a few lessons in basic Tlingit. Then he gets out his drum and breaks into song, prompting his passengers on the Goldbelt Mount Roberts Tram to join in. “Hoo ha hoo ha haa oh hei,” everyone sings. He points out an eagle’s nest, and a deer. (“We should probably put (the deer) on contract,” he jokes as AP Photo/Capital City Weekly, Mary Catharine Martin people begin pointing and takJohn Perkins, pictured with his drum, educates tourists on the ing pictures.) uses of Sitka spruce trees, hemlock trees, and red alder trees, At the top, he tells the tourJune 26. Perkins is a Goldbelt Mount Roberts Tram conductor.
ists “Gunalcheesh ho ho” (thank you very much). He’s at the top of the tram for a few minutes, dancing, singing and encouraging the little girl of a family from India to join in. She asks to borrow his drum and smiles hugely and shyly as her parents take her picture. On the way back down, Perkins recites a poem, “Thunderbird Child,” that he wrote in honor of his sister. He tells people about traditional uses for Sitka spruce, hemlock and red alder. “From the beach to the woods, we gather our goods,” he said. “There’s Sitka spruce for an achey tooth, bruises, boils and burns ...”
For the relatively small window he gets to teach people about Tlingit culture, Perkins conveys quite a bit of information. Perkins, now 53, was raised in Petersburg in the 1960s and 70s, one of 11 siblings, 10 of whom were boys. His Tlingit name is Daku’dane, and he is an Eagle of the Shangukeidi (Thunderbird) clan. “What I tell people down South is, we were so poor we were forced to eat king salmon, king crab, Dungeness crab, prawns ... (later,) I realized we were never poor, just broke,” See TRAM, page A-7
KPBSD works to Sitka roofers find battle relics save energy, money By SHANNON HAUGLAND Daily Sitka Sentinel
By KAYLEE OSOWSKI Peninsula Clarion
With rising energy costs, the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District continues to try to reduce energy consumption to save money. While utilities make up slightly more than 4 percent of KPBSD’s fiscal year 2015 budget, the district and the borough have implemented programs and projects to save money and
energy throughout the years. In fiscal year 2008, the district started an energy conservation program. The money saved through the program is reallocated for educational purposes. Through the program each school is given back 25 percent of the cost avoidance based on energy consumption or usage by site. Since the program began, schools have earned $489,678
SITKA — Roofing volunteers or amateur archaeologists? The workers on the Hames Center reroofing project thought of themselves as both last week after finding about 20 rusty iron balls, about one inch in diameter, mixed in with the river-run gravel weighting down the old roofing system.
See ENERGY, page A-2 C
The layer of smooth pebbles that was an integral part of the flat portion of the athletic center’s roof when it was built in the 1980s is being removed as part of the roof renovation now under way. After the workers noticed the metal balls mixed in with the gravel they began speculating on their origin. The theory now being investigated is that the balls were grapeshot or canister shot fired by cannons in the
1804 Battle of Sitka, and had remained on the bottom of Indian River the next century and a half, until the gravel was dredged out for construction projects Both grapeshot and canister shot are small metal balls fired as a cluster from a cannon, and having the effect of a shotgun, scattering projectiles over a large area.

through the incentive, Dave Tressler, director of planning and operations said. While energy consumption has decreased, energy costs have increased, which can make reducing costs yearto-year challenging, Tressler said. In FY08, the district spent about $2.6 million on electricity. In FY13 that expense jumped to $3.1 million. Natural gas costs increased by $187,149 from FY08 to FY13. Fuel for heating decreased by $43,545 between FY08 and FY13. “I’m just going to use a hypothetical (a school) may have saved $50,000 the first year,

Hames Center, is one of the volunteers shoveling gravel off the roof. “It’s a tedious job,” he said. “For a moment we were just fancying ourselves as archaeologists, not rooftop workers.” The volunteers were excited when the balls started showing up, and called Brinnen Carter, chief of resources at Sitka National Historical Park, for an opinion. Carter told Brantman and the others that on first glance the iron spheres have markings that appear to be Russian, but that he will have to do further research before he’s sure. But he did say that the objects appear to be canister shot or grapeshot, based on their size, material and mold markings, called sprue. He said weapons that used this type of shot were commonly found on ships and land-based artillery of all nationalities at the time of the Sitka battle between the Russians and the Tlingits. Carter, whose master’s thesis was about the arms and armaments of a British warship that sank in Lake Champlain, said he’s in the initial phase of the investigation, and will start C

well then they have to save on top of that again and … with the cost of energy and everything going up, that’s very difficult, but schools are still doing that,” Tressler said. The incentive program is behavioral-based, Tressler said. Before the program launched, district employees were educated about energy conservation and reminders to turn off lights were stuck to switches. Tressler said the district is looking into revamping the program to encourage interest in energy conservation in the schools. “The goals are obviously to save much needed money for the budget because obviously the money that is saved there can go into the classrooms for education,” Tressler said. The borough is working on
ongoing projects to reduce utility costs in the schools. Tressler said the borough has been doing area-wide electrical upgrades since the late 1990s. “(The borough tries) to keep up with the latest technology to save the district money as far as utility costs go,” Tressler said. The ongoing roofing projects for buildings across the district will bring older roofs with small R-Values or insulation levels to 38. This summer Skyview High School and Tustumena Elementary School are getting total reroofs and Aurora Borealis Charter School is getting a partial reroof. Tressler said the district in the past about seven years has done window replacements at Soldotna Elementary School and Ninilchik School.
In the KPBSD six-year plan for FY15-FY21, window replacement projects are identified for Chapman, Paul Banks, Sterling and Tustumena Elementary Schools. The projects for Chapman and Tustumena also include siding replacements. All the projects are estimated to cost between $500,000 and $550,000. Tressler said the higher energy efficient windows make a considerable difference. “We would really, really like to fund, somehow fund those windows from the old schools that were built in the late 50s and 60s and 70s,” Tressler said. “That’s huge for us. It’s on our six-year plan as a high priority.” Kaylee Osowski can be reached at kaylee.osowski@ peninsulaclarion.com.
by finding out who the contractor was on the last project. He said he’s particularly interested in whether the shot is from the Battle of 1804. Brantman said he and his wife, Cindy Edwards, first heard about iron balls in the roof gravel from Cindy’s dad, Jere Edwards, in the 1990s, when Jere was a Volunteer in Mission on the Sheldon Jackson College and was working on maintenance projects at the Hames building. “He told Cindy one of the VIMs found the balls, and the suspicion was that because it was rock that came from Indian River ... that they may have been Russian,” Brantman said. “We heard legend of that.” Cindy Edwards’ nephew Jesse Brantman, the third generation of the EdwardsBrantman family to volunteer at the Hames Center, was the first one to find the iron balls, while shoveling gravel on the roof last week. Indian River has been offlimits for dredging since the 1940s, when vast quantities of gravel was dredged for military construction around Sitka. Carter speculated that there may have been stockpiles of this gravel left behind in Sitka after the war. He’s eager to
talk to the contractor about the rock source on the Hames Center roof project. After the first balls started showing up last week, the gravel removal on the roof turned into a bit of a treasure hunt, with volunteers checking every shovelful of gravel. The roof project calls for removal of the old covering on the flat roof areas and replacing the insulation underneath, which had become saturated.
Brantman said volunteers are contributing their labor to make the project affordable. “It’s a bunch of high-functioning people doing days of grunt work - it was good to have some diversion.” Brantman said he is mostly focused on finishing the roof project, but would certainly like to know more about their find. “I’m mostly curious to hear what the experts say,” Brantman said.

In this June 18 photo, volunteer workers, from left, Brant Brantman, Bridger Williams, Xaver Clarke and Jesse Brantman hold up some of the iron balls they found mixed in the rocks they were removing from the Hames Center roof in Sitka. The balls likely came from the same place as the rocks ––the Indian River area, the site of battles between Tlingit Natives and Russians in 1804. They may be Russian canister shot fired from ship’s cannons.

Family maintains hold on pit-spitting contest EAU CLAIRE, Mich. (AP) — When it comes to pit-spitting in southwestern Michigan, it’s tough to beat the Krause family, who on Saturday maintained their dominance in the 41st International Cherry Pit-Spitting Championship. Brian Krause took top honors with a distance of 80 feet, 8 inches, said Monica Teichman, who runs the market at TreeMendus Fruit Farm in Eau Claire, just north of the Indiana state line. Coming in second this year was Brian’s father, Rick, with a spitting distance of 77 feet, 7½ inches. Kevin Bartz took third with 64 feet, 8 inches. Last year’s big winner was Matt “BB Gun” Krause with a distance of 41 feet, 6½ inches. The Krause family has won 26 of 41 of the contests since farm owner Herb Teichman launched the tournament in 1974 as a lark — but also to mark the region’s tart cherry harvest. Brian Krause holds the record spit of 93 feet, 6½ inches, set in 2003. More than 100 people tried to qualify Saturday for the championship round.

‘Transformers’ beats ‘Tammy’ in box office By JAKE COYLE
AP Film Writer NEW YORK (AP) — The Fourth of July went off like a dud at the box office, as the Michael Bay sequel “Transformers: Age of Extinction” and the Melisa McCarthy comedy “Tammy” led the weakest summer holiday weekend in at least a decade. The North American box office was down a whopping 44 percent over the July Fourth weekend last year, when “Despicable Me 2” and “The Lone Ranger” opened. This weekend sputtered not because of an oversized bomb like “The Lone Ranger,” but because of numerous factors, including that Hollywood simply didn’t aim for big fireworks this year. The holdover “Transformers” led all films with an estimated $36.4 million, while “Tammy” had a below expectations Friday-to-Sunday haul of $21.2 million. “This ranks as one of the lowest Fourth of Julys ever,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak. “We always think of Fourth of July being a big weekend. This year, we just have to lick our wounds and look forward to ‘Planet of the Apes’ and
some other films to get us back on track.” Paramount’s “Transformers,” the fourth in the series, opened the weekend prior to the year’s biggest debut with $100 million. The movie, with a rebooted cast led by Mark Wahlberg, dropped considerably (63 percent) in its second week of release despite relatively little competition. Overseas, “Age of Extinction” is performing exceptionally well. It added $95.8 million from 37 territories for a two-week worldwide gross of $575.6 million. It’s set to soon become the highest grossing film ever in China, with already more than $200 million in box office sales. “Transformers 4” was partially shot in China, features local star Li Bingbing and premiered at the Shanghai Film Festival. New Line’s R-rated, Midwest road trip romp “Tammy” boasts one of the most bankable stars in movies — McCarthy — but is a smaller, homespun movie made for just $20 million and directed by McCarthy’s husband, Ben Falcone. Despite being savaged by critics, the Warner Bros. release made $32.9 million in five days since opening Wednesday. “Why the weekend was so weak in terms of competition is hard to tell,” said Dan Fellman,

head of domestic distribution for Warner Bros., who said he was very pleased with the performance of “Tammy.” ‘’It’s just the way things fell.” The other new wide release was the horror flick “Deliver Us From Evil,” which had no blockbuster ambitions. The Sony Screen Gems release, starring Eric Bana, opened in third with $9.5 million. Also debuting was Relativity Media’s animated
release “Earth to Echo,” which took in $8.3 million. Such movies are a far cry from the usual Independence Day fare, which has in the past included the opening weekends of “Spider-Man 2,” ‘’War of the Worlds,” two earlier “Transformers” releases and, naturally, “Independence Day.”

Obama’s new border crisis
It’s hard to imagine a more apt summation of the lunatic state of the nation’s immigration debate than the split screen over the past week. In Washington, most respectable opinion lined up, yet again, to condemn Republicans for not passing an amnesty under the guise of defunct-for-now “comprehensive immigration reform.” Meanwhile, the crisis on the Southern border continued. A massive influx of people — largely driven by Central Americans, many of them children — drawn here in the expectation of lax immigration enforcement is overwhelming border officials and facilities. A Wall Street Journal story about the White House reaction to the crisis was headlined “Obama Plans Executive Action to Bolster Border Security,” which has a man-bites-dog feel to it after all of the administration’s executive actions to undermine immigration enforcement. House Speaker John Boehner spoke imprecisely when he excoriated the president for “giving false hope to children and their families that if they enter the country illegally they will be allowed to stay.” Actually, the hope is quite real. A leaked memo from a high-ranking Border Patrol official said that only 3 percent of non-Mexicans apprehended at the border are being returned to their native countries. “It will not be open arms,” Vice President Joe Biden thundered in Guatemala City the other day, attempting to dissuade would-be migrants. “We’re going to hold hearings with our judges, consistent with
but its pitfalls have become increasingly apparent. Users’ personal information, interests and habits are all fair game for the company, which has little compunction about analyzing the data and selling them to advertisers. Now Facebook has gone beyond capitalism and into creepy. For a week in 2012, it seems, the company manipulated users’ news feeds as part of a psychology experiment to see whether happier or sadder content led users to write happier or sadder posts. The result? Facebook appears to have altered people’s emotional states without their awareness. This was wrong on multiple levels. It was unethical for Facebook to conduct a psychological experiment without users’ informed consent. And it was especially wrong to do so in a way that played with the emotions of its users. That’s dangerous territory. Facebook, which employs a secret algorithm to determine what users see on their news feeds, conducted its research by altering the feeds of some 700,000 users, increasing or decreasing the number of “positive” and “negative” messages they saw to study the “emotional contagion” of social networking. The company, together with two academic researchers, published the results this month in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In the study, Facebook asserted that users had given informed consent, which is standard protocol in psychological research, when they agreed to the company’s terms of service, which caution that users’ data can be mined for analysis and research. But that’s disingenuous. It’s hard to believe that users who took the time to read Facebook’s 13,000-word service agreements would have understood they were signing on to be lab rats. In response to the outrage, the Facebook researcher who designed the study apologized for “any anxiety it caused.” He added that the company will seek to improve its internal review practices for future research. Certainly Facebook needs to revisit its policies to ensure that its users are not unwilling participants in psychological research. If this research is so valuable, the company should seek true informed consent. But Facebook also needs to address its cavalier atLetters to the Editor titude toward its users.

area flooding have been patiently biding their time, waiting for Borough government to formulate and implement a comprehensive drainage improvement plan. They have placed their trust in the Borough to take decisive action toward providing improved area-wide drainage by bringing area roads into basic compliance with Borough standards and ordinances and thereby providing proper roadside ditch drainage and additionally by building drainage structures to intercept widespread sheet flow of flood waters moving northward out of the wetlands of the Kenai Gas Fields before reaching and inundating neighboring residential and commercial properties. With the very real prospect of a third, yes third, consecutive and catastrophic year of flooding area residents are growing increasingly impatient with the lack of communication and action coming from the Borough. Incredibly, water tables are currently higher and surface waters more extensive than during the same period preceding both the 2012 and 2013 flooding. Without decisive and timely action to improve area drainage another year of fall flooding is not merely possible but quite likely. But in reality the flooding has never been merely a fall event but rather a continuous year-round event that is in its third year. Borough officials must be upfront and completely transparent with local residents as our lives, families, homes, businesses, fortunes, and livelihoods are currently in jeopardy. If Borough intentions are merely to continue to “wait and see” or worse yet to ultimately do nothing, for fear that C
international law and American law, and we’re going to send the vast majority of you back.” The only part he had right is that we will hold hearings. The immigrants themselves may or Rich Lowry may not be part of them. The administration is waving the families and children into the United States, dispersing them around the country, and giving them a date — often quite distant because of a huge backlog — to appear in immigration court. Experience says only about a quarter of illegal immigrants released pending a court date will actually show up for the proceedings. Why would they? As Byron York of the Washington Examiner points out, once illegal immigrants are in the country, they fairly quickly can become part of the broad category of people that the administration has exempted from interior enforcement. Even many of the illegal immigrants who go all the way through the system and get a removal order don’t go anywhere. According to Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies, there are roughly 800,000 aliens who have been ordered removed but are still here. For a would-be migrant, the question is: Whom to believe: Joe Biden or your lying eyes? The administration claims to be deport-
other similarly situated Borough resident may also petition for relief, then let it be known — now. If Borough officials are intent on abdicating their responsibility to protect the public interest then so be it, but be informed that, with certainty, concerned citizens in the affected area will take meaningful action on our own behalf to improve area drainage ourselves. It is our right and duty to protect our aforementioned interests. Inaction is no longer tenable. Homes and businesses (structures and properties) have been inundated by both ground and surface flooding; septic systems have flooded and failed, contaminating local ground waters and drinking wells; standing water in yards and roadside ditches has become breeding grounds for massive numbers of mosquitoes; parents are fearful to let their small children near deep roadside ditches that never drain; foundations, driveways, sidewalks, and roads are damaged as saturated soils freeze, heave, and thaw. Consequently, property values are plummeting; real estate transactions have come to a complete standstill; damaged structures are likely to be condemned or abandoned; desperate homeowners carrying large mortgages are considering walking away from their “under water” obligations; all affected property owners that don’t abandon their properties will, sooner or later, demand radically reduced assessments to reflect properties values that are currently only worth pennies on the dollar. The Borough should ultimately see a radically reduced tax stream in the affected area for the foreseeable future if area drainage remains substandard. Even if Borough officials can ignore the human health hazards and misery caused by the flooding can they also neglect good business acumen? Is the Borough willing to stand by and watch the loss of approximately 100 million dollars worth of property assessments and consequently millions in property taxes lost annually?
ing illegal immigrants at a rapid pace, but its numbers are based on statistical sleight of hand. The reality is that, thanks to a June 2011 executive action, the administration has gutted interior enforcement by essentially limiting deportations to criminal illegal aliens. It is true that a Bush-era law forces the Border Patrol to hand over child migrants from countries other than Mexico to the Department of Health and Human Services to be placed with a suitable relative. The administration is rightly calling for that law to be changed. But the administration’s policy of eviscerating interior enforcement is entirely its own creation. That policy, together with the president’s de facto amnesty of young illegal immigrants and all the talk of a more wide-ranging amnesty over the past year, has had a predictable effect. The key to reversing the tide is enforcement, and not just at the border. But the same Wall Street Journal story with the headline about Obama bolstering the border reported he “will make at least minor adjustments to deportation policy later this summer that would shield some illegal immigrants from deportation” — with his base agitating for even more far-reaching action. For the left, and its fellow-travelers in the business community and on the libertarian right, there is only one side of the split screen that matters. It’s always amnesty. Rich Lowry can be reached via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a cost/benefit analysis were performed there’s little doubt that an improved drainage structure in the greater K-Beach area would be justified based on economics alone. It would serve not merely to preserve current property values and tax revenue streams but to enable future property development and additional tax revenue streams. Where the Borough has not exercised due diligence, clearly failing to act in a timely and effective manner, affected citizens within the flood area will likely form a drainage committee and with state and federal monies granted to the Borough for disaster relief and flood prevention we ourselves will contract with a reputable drainage expert and engineering firm to design and construct efficient, cost effective, and environmentally sensitive drainage improvements. Where the Borough has failed to act, affected citizens within the flood area will bring roadside drainage up to Borough established standards and create suitable structures to intercept flood waters before they reach our community delivering them harmlessly to the waters of Cook Inlet. No person or persons caused the catastrophic K-Beach flooding, as it was an Act of God. Over the past two years water tables have risen Peninsula-wide but radically so in areas with poor natural drainage such as the greater Kalifonsky area, which covers approximately 30 square miles. Though natural forces caused the flooding, effective engineering of drainage structures in a limited area, in and around existing developments, can attenuate its effects. If Borough officials will not take the lead in improving K-Beach area drainage then please step aside so that others might “take the bull by the horns” and effectively do so. Respectfully, Toby Burke, adversely affected property owner and resident of the greater K-Beach flood area

Charges against bombing suspects’ pals questioned By DENISE LAVOIE AP Legal Affairs Writer
BOSTON — In the weeks after two bombs exploded near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon, prosecutors charged three of the surviving suspect’s friends with obstructing the investigation or lying to authorities. More than a year later, they charged a fourth friend with deleting computer files and lying about certain details of his relationship with a second suspect. As the first friend heads to trial this week, some defense attorneys and others are criticizing the extent to which federal prosecutors have charged the men, who are not accused of participating in the attack or knowing about it in advance. Azamat Tazhayakov is
charged with conspiracy and obstruction of justice for allegedly agreeing with another college friend, Dias Kadyrbayev, to remove Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s backpack from his dorm room after learning he was a suspect in the bombing, which killed three people and injured more than 260. Opening statements in his trial are scheduled for Monday in U.S. District Court. Kadyrbayev, who faces a separate trial in September, is accused of throwing out the backpack, which contained fireworks that had been emptied of black powder, a bombmaking ingredient. Tazhayakov, according to an indictment, agreed with the plan to get rid of the backpack but did not participate in throwing it away. A third college friend, Robel Phillipos, is accused of lying to au-
thorities. “No matter what the facts are, I think the U.S. attorney’s office may be a little overzealous in how harshly they are treating these cases,” said Christopher Dearborn, a professor at Suffolk University Law School. Defense lawyers have reserved their harshest criticism for the prosecution of the fourth man, Khairullozhon Matanov, a 23-year-old cab driver from Quincy who was charged in May. Prosecutors say Matanov was a friend of Tsarnaev’s brother, Tamerlan, who died in a shootout with police. Matanov is accused of lying to the FBI, particularly about the contact he had with the Tsarnaevs after the bombings, including dinner at a restaurant the night of the attack and mul-
tiple phone calls that week. Matanov is accused of deleting files on his computer after the FBI released the brothers’ photos publicly three days after the bombing. He went to police the next morning and gave authorities their names, address and cellphone numbers. By that time, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was dead, and Dzhokhar was the object of a massive manhunt. He was later captured inside a boat in a Boston suburb. Some defense attorneys have criticized the decision to charge Matanov. “Most people, in the course of being subjected to an investigation and possible accusation, will sometimes say things that are not accurate but are nevertheless not criminal because they aren’t material to the investigation,” said Randy Chap-
man, a former president of the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys. Dearborn said he sees the charges against Matanov as “an attempt to impress the public.” “It’s to send the message that we’re tough on crime and very tough on terrorism, but at what price?” he said. “How does that resemble fairness?” Others say prosecutors are not only justified but also have an obligation to charge anyone they believe impedes a terrorism investigation. “Sometimes what happens is you end up with people who may not have had anything to do with the commission of the crime, but either lied or obstructed in the context of something that is extremely serious,” said Gerry Leone, a former state and federal prosecutor who led
the prosecution of shoe bomber Richard Reid. “You charge them to send a message: You don’t lie to investigators when they are trying to solve a terror investigation.” Professor Jeffrey Addicott, director of the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, said the charges against the Tsaranev friends are typical in terrorism cases. “This complaint is nothing new — that the Department of Justice is being overzealous,” he said. “On the other hand, the DOJ has been very trigger happy because they don’t want another 9/11 or another Boston Marathon attack. Therefore, they are very aggressive in casting as big a net as possible.” The U.S. attorney’s office declined to comment.
California great white shark bite victim feared for his life
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Steven Robles was an hour into his regular weekend swim off some of Southern California’s most popular beaches when he came face-to-face with a great white shark. The 7-foot-long juvenile had been trying to free itself from a fisherman’s hook for about half an hour. “It came up to the surface, it looked at me and attacked me right on the side of my chest,” Robles told KABC-TV. “That all happened within two seconds, I saw the eyes of the shark as I was seeing it swim toward me. It lunged at my chest, and it locked into my chest.” As a reflex, he tried to pry open the shark’s mouth. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is it. Oh my God, I’m going to die. This is really, this is it,’” Robles told CNN. And then, just as quickly as it struck, the shark let go and swam away. Robles was familiar with the waters of the Southern California coast. His Saturday morning routine included a swim from Hermosa Beach north to Manhattan Beach with fellow amateur distance swimmers, and last summer he completed a difficult swim approximately
20 miles from Santa Catalina Island to the Rancho Palos Verdes peninsula to raise money for a school in Nicaragua. Robles had been going for 2 miles with about a dozen friends Saturday when he encountered the shark around 9:30 a.m., fellow swimmer Nader Nejadhashemi said Sunday. “He said ‘I’ve been bit,’ and he was screaming,” said Nejadhashemi, who didn’t see the shark even though he was just 5 feet away. At first Nejadhashemi thought it must be a cramp. “Then,” he said, “I saw the blood.” Nejadhashemi reached his friend and checked that “all his extremities were intact,” then comforted him as others in the group flagged a nearby paddle boarder. “I don’t know how we managed to push him on the paddle board but we did,” he said. Once several surfers came over to help pull the board in, Robles was on his way to the shore, where paramedics treated his wounds. He was taken to the hospital but by Sunday morning had been released. Robles did not return messages left Sunday at several numbers listed under his name.
The shark remained in the area for about 20 minutes and then disappeared into the murky water, said Rick Flores, a Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesman. The beaches — crowded for the warm holiday weekend — remained open, but a mile-long stretch was temporarily off-limits to swimmers. Police also prohibited fishing from the pier where the fisherman hooked the shark until Tuesday. It’s illegal to fish for great white sharks. The fisherman told several local media that he was trying to catch a bat ray, not a shark, and that he didn’t cut the line sooner because of how many swimmers were in the water. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the wildlife officials were investigating; a department spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment. Shark sightings are on the rise at some Southern California beaches, especially in the waters off Manhattan Beach, which is a popular spot for surfers and paddle boarders but also has long been identified as a pupping ground for white sharks. A life-sized model of a white shark is displayed outside an aquarium on the pier, with an explanation that juvenile sharks are common in the area.

Recent shootings add to violent year for Indy By KEN KUSMER Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — The fatal shooting of a decorated police officer this holiday weekend and a gun battle that wounded seven people the same day in a popular nightlife district have underscored what so far has been a violent year in Indianapolis. Mourners left flowers Sunday on the patrol car of 51-yearold Officer Perry Renn, who had been with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department more than 20 years and was a recipient of the department’s Medal of Bravery. Police said the suspect in Renn’s shooting Saturday night, 25-year-old Major Davis Jr., was armed with an assault rifle. They said officers wounded Davis when they returned gunfire in an alley after responding to a report of shots fired. He was listed in critical condition Sunday following surgery at an Indianapolis hospital and faced a preliminary charge of murder. The nightlife district shooting occurred in the early hours Saturday, and police had not made any arrests as of Sunday evening. They said two people bumped into each other in the Broad Ripple entertainment district, apparently setting off a gun battle that left seven people wounded, one critically. The shootings were the latest in a violent year for Indianapolis, where 72 homicides have happened in just over six months — a pace that could have 2014 rivaling 1998, when the city had its worst year on record with a
total of 162 killings. “It’s extremely disappointing for a city as great as Indianapolis and it is not indicative of all the great things happening in our city,” police spokesman Lt.

6 arrested in slaying of Arab teen By JOSEF FEDERMAN Associated Press
JERUSALEM — Israel arrested six Jewish suspects Sunday in the grisly slaying of a Palestinian teenager who was abducted and burned alive last week — a crime that set off a wave of violent protests in Arab sections of the country. Leaders of the Jewish state appealed for calm amid signs the death was revenge for the recent killings of three Israeli teenagers. “We will not allow extremists, it doesn’t matter from which side, to inflame the region and cause bloodshed,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a nationally televised statement. “Murder is murder, incitement is incitement, and we will respond aggressively to both.” He promised to prosecute those responsible to the full extent of the law. The region has been on edge since three Israeli teens — one of them a U.S. citizen — were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the West Bank last month. Last week, the teens’ bodies were found in a West Bank field in a crime Israel blamed on the militant group Hamas. Just hours after the youths were buried, Mohammed Abu Khdeir, a 16-year-old Palestinian from east Jerusalem, was abducted near his home, and his charred remains were found shortly afterward in a Jerusalem forest. Preliminary autopsy results found he was still alive when he was set on fire. Palestinians immediately accused Israeli extremists of killing the youth in revenge. And on Sunday, Israeli authorities said the killers had acted out of “nationalistic” motives. The suspects remained in custody and were being interrogated, authorities said. An Israeli official said there were six suspects and described them as young males, including several minors, all of whom lived in the Jerusalem area. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was continuing.
He said police had located a car used by the suspects. During the investigation, he said, police learned of an attempted kidnapping the previous day of a child in the same neighborhood and concluded the cases were linked. Israeli TV showed pictures of the 9-year-old boy with red marks around his neck. Abu Khdeir’s family said that the arrests brought them little joy and that they had little faith in the Israeli justice system. “I don’t have any peace in my heart, even if they captured who they say killed my son,” said his mother, Suha. “They’re only going to ask them questions and then release them. What’s the point?” She added: “They need to treat them the way they treat us. They need to demolish their homes and round them up, the way they do it to our children.” Abu Khdeir’s death triggered violence in his neighborhood, as angry crowds destroyed train stations and hurled rocks. The unrest spread to sections of northern Israel over the weekend. On Sunday, the situation in east Jerusalem, home to most of the city’s Palestinians, appeared to be calming down, as businesses and markets reopened, and roads that had been cordoned off were reopened to traffic. Top Israeli officials expressed concern that the charged atmosphere of recent days had led to the boy’s killing. After the Israeli teenagers were found dead, several hundred Jewish extremists had marched through downtown Jerusalem calling for “death to Arabs.” Social media sites were also flooded with calls for vengeance. Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said her ministry is investigating some of the anti-Arab incitement seen on Facebook last week. “These things need to be cut when they are small,” she told Channel 2 TV. “At this moment, everybody’s job should be to lower the flames.”
Around the World Iraq working to determine authenticity of video purportedly showing militant leader

Tariq Abu Khdeir, 15, a U.S. citizen who relatives say was beaten and arrested by Israeli police during clashes sparked by the killing Thursday of his cousin Mohammed Abu Khdeir, is escorted by Israeli prison guards during an appearance at Jerusalem magistrate’s court Sunday. Israeli police said Tariq Abu Khdeir resisted arrest, attacked officers and was carrying a slingshot for lobbing stones when he was arrested. He has been sentenced to nine days of house arrest. The U.S. State Department said it was “profoundly troubled” by reports of his beating and demanded an investigation.
Cabinet minister Jacob Peri, a former head of the Shin Bet security agency, said he had met with Arab leaders in northern Israel to calm tensions. President Shimon Peres, a Nobel peace laureate, also was in contact with Arab leaders. About 50 people were arrested in several days of demonstrations following Abu Khdeir’s death, and 15 police officers and two civilians were injured, authorities said. A 15-year-old PalestinianAmerican cousin of Abu Khdeir was also injured in clashes with Israeli security forces in east Jerusalem. The boy, Tariq Abu Khdeir, who goes to school in Florida, was ordered confined to his home in Israel for nine days while police investigate what they say was his participation in violent protests — a charge his family denies. The U.S. State Department said it was “profoundly troubled” by reports that he was beaten, and Israel’s Justice Ministry launched an investigation. As Tariq was released to his
family, he was crying and appeared badly bruised, with both eyes and his mouth swollen. “I feel better. I am excited to be back home,” he said. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said that “if the investigation is concluded promptly, Mr. Khudeir should be able to return to Florida as planned with his family later this month.” Tariq’s parents said they plan on returning to the U.S. with their son on July 16. The situation along Israel’s southern border with the Gaza Strip, meanwhile, remained tense. Gaza militants have stepped up rocket fire in recent weeks, drawing Israeli airstrikes. The Israeli military said late Sunday that it carried out an airstrike on militants involved in firing rockets at Israel. It said at least 25 rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza over the course of the day. Gaza medical official Ashraf al-Kidra said that two men were killed and one injured. Relatives said they belonged to a militant group.
BAGHDAD — Iraq security agencies are working to verify the authenticity of a video that purportedly shows the elusive leader of the Sunni extremist group that has declared an Islamic state in a large chunk of territory it controls leading prayers this week in northern Iraq, authorities said. The video said to show Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of the Islamic State group, was reportedly filmed on Friday at the Great Mosque in Iraq’s second-largest city, Mosul. It was posted on at least two websites known to be used by the organization and bore the logo of its media arm. The sermon in Mosul would the first public appearance for al-Baghdadi, a shadowy figure who has emerged as perhaps the preeminent figure in the international jihadi community. Al-Baghdadi, who has a $10 million U.S. bounty on his head, took over the group four years ago and has since transformed it from an al-Qaida affiliate focused on Iraq into an independent transnational force that controls of a huge stretch of land straddling the Syria-Iraq border. Iraqi military spokesman Lt. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi told reporters Sunday the country’s security services are still analyzing the 21-minute video to verify whether the speaker is indeed al-Baghdadi, and that the government will “announce the details once they are available.” The purported appearance in Mosul, a city of some 2 million that the militants seized last month, came five days after al-Baghdadi’s group declared the establishment of an Islamic state, or caliphate, in the territories it has seized in Iraq and Syria. The group proclaimed al-Baghdadi the leader of its state and demanded that all Muslims pledge allegiance to him.
Pro-Russia rebels regroup in Donetsk DONETSK, Ukraine — Discouraged but defiant, proRussia separatists vowed to keep fighting the government in Kiev from the largest city in eastern Ukraine, where they regrouped Sunday after being driven out of a key stronghold. At a rally in a central Donetsk square, the rebels were cheered on by thousands of supporters waving flags from Russia and the self-proclaimed independent Donetsk People’s Republic. Many urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to quickly come to their aid — but there was no comment Sunday from Russia. While the rebel withdrawal Saturday from Slovyansk, a city of 100,000 they had held for months, was not a total victory, President Petro Poroshenko said purging the city of the insurgents had “incredible symbolic importance.” It was unclear whether the government — after abandoning a cease-fire last week and going back on the offensive — was now winning the fight that had sputtered for months. Rebel fighters from Slovyansk could be seen walking through Donetsk on Sunday in groups of 10 to 15. Most were still wearing camouflage, but some sported identical new bright-colored shorts and shirts. It was an unsuccessful effort to blend in with the civilian population, since they still carried automatic weapons. At one money-exchange office in the city center, about 20 rebels lined up to trade U.S. dollars for Ukrainian hryvnas. The dollar is considered a more stable currency in Ukraine and Russia, but it was not known who had given them to the rebels. They refused to speak with Associated Press journalists and their mood appeared black. — The Associated Press
Red Cross: 22 dead in attacks in Kenyan By TOM ODULA Associated Press
NAIROBI, Kenya — Twenty-two people were killed in overnight attacks by gunmen on the Kenyan coast, the Kenya Red Cross said Sunday. AlQaida-linked militants claimed responsibility but Kenyan officials blamed local separatists. The Saturday night attacks left 13 dead in the town of Hindi and nine dead and one person missing in the town of Gamba, in neighboring Lamu and Tana Delta counties, Kenya Red Cross chief Abbas Gulet said. Al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab militants from Somalia claimed responsibility for Saturday’s attacks — just like they did for others last month that killed 65 people. Kenya police, however, said preliminary investigations pointed to a Kenyan separatist group on the coast. The attacks come as ten-
sions are rising over a planned protest rally Monday in Nairobi by the opposition, which wants the government to convene national talks over security issues, the increasing cost of living, corruption and the disbandment of the electoral authority. Many fear the protests could further divide the nation along tribal lines. About 15 gunmen raided the town of Hindi and started shooting at residents, according to the Lamu county commissioner Njenga Miiri. The assailants allegedly burned several buildings, including a church, and also attacked the Gamba police station, Kenyan police chief David Kimaiyo said. The victims in Gamba included five non-Muslim inmates killed when the gunmen attacked the police station, said a senior police officer who spoke anonymously because he was not authorized to speak with the media. Three other
inmates escaped with the gunmen, according to the officer. Grace Kaindi, a deputy inspector general of police, told reporters Sunday that preliminary investigations pointed to the separatist group Mombasa Republican Council. She showed a message allegedly left by the attackers on a blackboard at a school that called on Muslims to rise up, take back their land and kick out Christians from the coast. The message also suggested the attackers support opposition leader and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga. Kenya has witnessed a notable increase in attacks since deploying troops in Oct. 2011 to fight al-Shabab militants. Al-Shabab claimed responsibility for a deadly attack last month on the town of Mpeketoni on the Kenyan coast and another attack the following day on a nearby village. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta
and the interior minister have blamed local political networks for those attacks — assertions that have been met with skepticism. Last month, police arrested Lamu Governor Issa Timamy and charged him with murder, forceful eviction of residents and terrorism in connection to the Mpeketoni attacks. Kenyatta’s claims that the Mpeketoni attack was “politically motivated” are seen as an indirect attack on Odinga, who lost to Kenyatta in last year’s vote. The accusations have stoked tension between supporters of the two politicians, raising fears of violence. Odinga has vowed to continue with the protest despite a court order barring him and other leaders from the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy from convening the rally. The government has said 15,000 police officers will be deployed at the rally to prevent violence.
Spy case threatens to sour German-US ties By GEIR MOULSON Associated Press
BERLIN — German-U.S. relations are facing a new test over a German intelligence employee who reportedly spied for the U.S., with Germany’s president saying if the allegations are true, that kind of spying on allies must stop. Prosecutors say a 31-yearold German was arrested last week on suspicion of spying for foreign intelligence services, and that he allegedly handed over 218 documents between 2012 and 2014. German media, without naming sources, have reported he was an employee of Germany’s foreign intelligence service who says he sold his ser-
‘I expect everyone now to assist quickly in clearing up the accusations — and quick and clear statements, from the USA too.’ — Thomas de Maiziere, Interior Minister vices to the U.S. Germany’s Foreign Ministry summoned the U.S. ambassador Friday to help clarify the case. The country’s top security official stepped up the pressure Sunday. “I expect everyone now to assist quickly in clearing up the accusations — and quick and clear statements, from the USA
too,” Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere was quoted as saying in Bild newspaper. The issue threatens to strain German-U.S. relations again after earlier reports that the National Security Agency spied on Germans, including on Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cellphone. If it turns out the U.S. “gave this kind of assignment to one C
of our intelligence employees, then it really has to be said: That’s enough now,” President Joachim Gauck said on ZDF television. The head of a parliamentary committee investigating the activities of U.S. and allied spies, Patrick Sensburg, said he has no information that documents from the panel were spied on, but government documents destined for the committee may have been. The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Council have declined to comment. Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said at a book presentation in Berlin it’s “a serious issue.”
Egypt president wishes journalists weren’t tried By SARAH EL DEEB Associated Press
CAIRO — Egypt’s president acknowledged for the first time that the heavy sentences handed down to three Al-Jazeera journalists had a “very negative” impact on his country’s reputation, saying he wished they were never put on trial. The comments by AbdelFattah el-Sissi to editors of Egyptian media outlets were published late Sunday. They were the first public recognition by Egyptian officials that the case had been damaging to the country’s relations with the international community. The sentencing of the three journalists on June 23, after a five-month trial described as a “sham” by rights groups, caused an international outcry. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called the sentences “chilling and draconian,” and urged Egyptian authorities to address international concerns. A day after the sentences and following an outpouring of international condemnation, elSissi appeared to be rebuffing the pressure, saying in televised comments that he will not interfere in court rulings. In his remarks published Sunday, he said the case represented one of the foreign policy challenges facing Egypt, but stopped short of saying whether he will issue a clemency. He seemed to be refuting claims that the case is politically motivated, and a reflection of the tension between Egypt and Qatar, the Gulf state that owns the television network. Qatar
was a supporter of the ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, and his Muslim Brotherhood group. After Morsi’s ouster last year, many of the group’s leaders moved to Qatar to avoid an intense government crackdown that landed thousands in jail. “The verdict issued against a number of journalists had very negative consequences; and we had nothing to do with it,” el-Sissi said, suggesting it was an entirely legal matter. “I wished they were deported immediately after their arrest instead of being put on trial.” His comments were published in the online version of AlMasry Al-Youm daily. The three Al-Jazeera journalists were award-winning Australian journalist Peter Greste, Egyptian-Canadian acting bureau chief Mohammed Fahmy and Egyptian producer Baher Mohammed. They were arrested on Dec. 29 and accused of aiding the Brotherhood by providing it with a media platform and equipment. The Egyptians were also accused of belonging to the Brotherhood, the group the government declared a terrorist organization. Greste and Fahmy each received sevenyear sentences, while Mohammed got 10 years. Three other foreign journalists were sentenced to 10 years in absentia. The sentences can be appealed, a process that can take months. Egypt’s constitution allows the president to issue a clemency, but experts argue the appeals process must be exhausted first.

He completed some school at Juneau-Douglas High School and finished high school in Anchorage. He started out in poetry by changing the words in songs. When he moved away from Petersburg, he and his best friend kept in touch by sending poems to each other about how cool the other one was, he said. He characterizes his poetry as “more in the style of Robert Service, as opposed to some kind of slam jam.

He’s lived in California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii and Washington, in addition to Alaska. In Washington, he worked with the Chief Seattle Club, which provides “a sacred space to nurture, affirm and renew the spirit of urban Native peoples,” according to its website. Though he’s not interested in getting involved with anything political here in Juneau, “I have a drum with me at all

It’s what I do with poetry.” Being away for many years gives him a better perspective on what an amazing place Southeast Alaska is, he said. “One thing I’m noticing more and more is the majesty of Southeast Alaska,” he said. “I’m recognizing it for the first time, I guess.” As a tram conductor, he has a good vantage point from which to do so. “What I realized it’s that it’s a role that seemingly, I’ve been training for all my life,” he said. “I’m a presenter, I’m a poet, and I’m a Southeast Alaskan.”

Randy Spray from Phoenix, Arizona, placed first in the silver senior freestyle division with 981 points. Sarah Taster placed first in the girl cub division. The tournament is part of competitions within the Alaska State Archery Association. Gold, silver and bronze metals were handed out to the top three placers in each division. The archery club awarded each winner with a wooden arrow and provided lunch and dinner. Sportsman’s Warehouse cohosted the event and raffled off prizes. After archers completed the course on Sunday, scores were tallied while kids competed in fun shoots like trying to hit a moving target. James and Tasha Cook came from Palmer so their daughters Kira, 10 and Lena, 8, could participate in the tournament for the first time. Kira, said she had a lot of fun and saw herself improve a lot on the second day. Lena, used a traditional bow because she said it is lighter.

You are always striving for a better shot each time. There is always another level to achieve.” When Lindgren was a kid growing up in New Jersey, his dad took him to competitive shoots every weekend. As the archery sport has developed with more mechanical compound bows with release aids, he still likes to keep it simple. “With longbow you don’t need sights and stabilizers, just a stick and string,” he said. Lindgren won the men’s traditional bow division for the third time in four years. He scored 453 points in the first day and 217 points on Sunday for a total of 670 points.

Cabrera finally gets non-major By The Associated Press
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Angel Cabrera won the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday for his first non-major victory on the PGA Tour, closing with his second straight 6-under 64 for a two-stroke victory over George McNeill. Cabrera, the 44-year-old Argentine whose only other PGA Tour victories came in the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters, built a three-shot lead before making things interesting with a pair of late bogeys. He finished at 16-under 264 at Old White TPC. McNeill shot a season-best 61 for his
fourth top-10 of the season and first since mid-March. Webb Simpson had a 63 to finish third at 10 under. Third-round leader Billy Hurley III bogeyed four of the first six holes to fall out of contention. He shot 73 and finished in a seven-way tie for fourth at 9 under. Bud Cauley (64), Bradley (66), Brendon Todd (66), Chris Stroud (69), Cameron Tringale (69) and Will Wilcox (69) also finished at 9 under. The leading four players among the top 12 not already exempt for the British Open earned spots in the July 17-20 tournament

Aric Almirola celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla., Sunday.
No. 43 gets back on top Almirola triumphs at Daytona MARK LONG AP Sports Writer
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — It had been more than 15 years since the iconic No. 43 drove to Victory Lane. So waiting through two days of thunderstorms and three red flags was relatively easy for Aric Almirola and his Richard Petty Motorsports team. Almirola won the raindelayed and rain-shortened NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, putting Petty’s famed blue car back on top for the first time since 1999. Almirola’s first Cup win came on the same weekend Petty celebrated the 30th anniversary of his 200th career win. The 30-year-old Almirola was just a baby when Petty picked up that milestone victory. “The 43 car is without a doubt the most famous car in our sport’s history,” Almirola said. “And to have that opportunity to drive that race car has been really special from the day that I stepped foot in it. All I wanted to do from the very first time I drove it was get it to Victory Lane. It took two and a half years I guess, but I finally did it.” Petty wasn’t around for the festivities, having already left Daytona during one of the many delays. He didn’t miss much considering steady rain
put a slight damper on the post-race party. NASCAR, though, patched through the seven-time NASCAR champion nicknamed “The King” on a conference call afterward and talked about how he never lost faith despite years of struggles as a team owner. “If you look back at the history of Petty Enterprises and all the turmoil we’ve been through, I never gave up on the thing,” Petty said. “It was one of those deals I said, ‘OK, if I keep working at it long enough, we’re going to be able to overcome all of this.’ Just because we won a race doesn’t mean we’ve overcome it, don’t get me wrong. But it puts in a higher speed track. You know you can do it. “Everybody’s got to have a start, and I think this will be starting it pretty good.” The Coke Zero 400 was originally scheduled to go off Saturday night, but steady rain forced it to be postponed a day. When it did finally get started Sunday, it was interrupted several more times. There were three red flags, two of them because of huge accidents that took out most of the 43-car field and several top contenders. Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick, Jamie McMurray, Carl Edwards, Kasey Kahne, Greg Biffle and Kyle Busch were among those knocked out of contention.

Novak Djokovic of Serbia kisses the trophy after defeating Roger Federer of Switzerland in the men’s singles final at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships in Wimbledon, London, Sunday.
Djokovic wins Wimbledon title HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer
LONDON — Novak Djokovic’s large lead in the rollicking Wimbledon final was slipping away, due in no small part to Roger Federer’s regal presence and resurgent play. No man has won tennis’ oldest major tournament more often than Federer, and he was not about to let it go easily. Djokovic went from being a point from victory in the fourth set to suddenly caught in the crucible of a fifth, and knew all too well that he had come up short in recent Grand Slam title matches. Steeling himself when he so desperately needed to, Serbia’s Djokovic held on for a
6-7 (7), 6-4, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-4 victory after nearly four hours of momentum shifts Sunday to win Wimbledon for the second time — and deny Switzerland’s Federer what would have been a record eighth championship at the All England Club. “I could have easily lost my concentration in the fifth and just handed him the win. But I didn’t, and that’s why this win has a special importance to me, mentally,” Djokovic said. “I managed to not just win against my opponent, but win against myself, as well, and find that inner strength.” Cradling his trophy during the post-match ceremony, Djokovic addressed Federer directly, saying: “I respect your career and everything you have
done. And thank you for letting me win today.” Even Federer had to smile at that line. Truth is, Djokovic deserved plenty of credit for figuring out a way to raise his Grand Slam total to seven titles and allows him to overtake Rafael Nadal at No. 1 in the rankings. “Novak deserved it at the end, clearly,” said Federer, who hadn’t been to a Grand Slam final since winning his 17th major at Wimbledon in 2012, “but it was extremely close.” Federer, who turns 33 next month, won 88 of 89 service games through the semifinals and produced 29 aces in the final, but Djokovic broke him four times. Federer went to the net ag-
gressively, only to see Djokovic zoom more than a dozen passing shots past him. And with most of the Centre Court crowd of about 15,000 raucously cheering for Federer, the 27-year-old Djokovic kept believing in himself. That part might have been the most difficult, given that Djokovic lost his past three major finals, and five of his past six, including against Andy Murray at Wimbledon last year, and against Nadal at the French Open last month. “Started doubting, of course, a little bit,” Djokovic said. “I needed this win a lot.” Boris Becker, the three-time Wimbledon champion who began coaching Djokovic this See TENNIS, Page A-9

Nibali wears yellow jersey JAMEY KEATEN Associated Press
SHEFFIELD, England — Italy’s Vincenzo Nibali displayed his riding smarts at the Tour de France, winning Stage 2 on Sunday and taking the yellow jersey after a well-choreographed attack on rivals in the postindustrial English city known for “The Full Monty.” The Astana team leader nicknamed “The Shark” for his road savvy took the final lead in a cycling dance of sorts with other title hopefuls, who took turns in front in the last stretch through a sea of fans from York to Sheffield. Nibali perhaps had more at stake: The 29-year-old rider has won the Italian Giro and Spain’s Vuelta, but has never captured cycling’s showcase event. The victory on Sunday gave him both his first Tour stage win and yellow jersey, and sent a message that he could contend to take it home from Paris in three weeks. With about a mile left, Nibali escaped a 21-man breakaway bunch at the end of the 125mile course over nine heathcovered hills of Yorkshire, and held off their late surge. Eng-

land is hosting the first three Tour stages this year. GERMAN STRIPPED OF YELLOW JERSEY Marcel Kittel, a powerful German sprinter who often struggles on climbs, trailed nearly 20 minutes back and lost the yellow jersey that he had captured by winning Stage 1. While the Italian won the battle to the line, under the shadow of a black Sheffield Forgemasters tower, defending champion Chris Froome of Britain and two-time winner Alberto Contador of Spain are focusing more on the overall race — which ends July 27 on Paris’ Champs-Elysees. Overall, Nibali leads 20 other riders by two seconds, including Froome in fifth place and Contador in eighth. A six-man breakaway bunch tried its chances early, but got swallowed up by the pack with some 20 miles left. Then, the big race stars moved to the front, splitting the pack. Contador, Froome, and Americans Andrew Talansky and Tejay van Garderen all spent time at the front. At times, they mustered bursts of speed or zipped across with width of the road in tactical maneuvers. the fourth set and served for the championship at 5-3. But Federer broke there for the first time all afternoon, smacking a forehand winner as Djokovic slipped and fell on a patch of brown dirt. Djokovic took a nastier tumble in the second set, hurting his left leg and prompting the first of two medical timeouts; he got his right calf massaged by a trainer in the fifth. With Federer serving at 5-4 in the fourth, he double-faulted to 30-all, then netted a backhand for 30-40 — handing Djokovic a match point.
Sports Briefs Diaw signs with Spurs for 3 years Boris Diaw was on his way out of the NBA when he arrived in San Antonio, where the Spurs were trying to breathe new life into a core that had not won a championship in five years. They proved to be a perfect match, and after playing a key role in the Spurs’ latest championship, Diaw found no reason to continue his career renaissance elsewhere. Diaw tweeted Sunday night that he agreed to terms on a new contract with the Spurs and a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press that it’s a three-year contract worth $22 million. The person requested anonymity because the contract cannot be signed until the league’s moratorium ends Thursday. “Hey spurs fans, Good news,” the French-born Diaw tweeted, “i stay in san antonio for a few more years. Lets win it again.”
Di Maria out for Argentina BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil — Argentina midfielder Angel Di Maria has been ruled out of the World Cup semifinal against the Netherlands with a thigh injury while striker Sergio Aguero has been declared fit to play after recovering from a similar problem. Di Maria limped off the field in the first half of Argentina’s quarterfinal win over Belgium after straining a muscle in the back of his right thigh. Team doctor Daniel Martinez on Sunday said tests showed it was a “first-degree” strain — the mildest kind but added that Di Maria wouldn’t be fit to play in Wednesday’s semifinal.

neric NL jersey. “I won’t get to pitch, which is a bummer, but that’s all right,” Samardzija said. “I’ll just go through whatever ceremonies they have and just jump over to the AL dugout with an NL jersey on and have some fun with the six other dudes we have over there, which is exciting.” Oakland, with the best record in the majors, has its most All-Stars since 1975: left-handers Sean Doolittle and Scott Kazmir; catcher Derek Norris; first baseman Brandon Moss; third baseman
Josh Donaldson; and outfielder Yoenis Cespedes. “It’s really cool,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “We were hoping for something like this.” Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, playing his 20th and final season, was chosen for his 14th All-Star team and will start for the ninth time. He gets reunited with Seattle second baseman Robinson Cano, his former double-play partner in New York. Mariano Rivera, the retiring Yankees reliever, was the center of at-
tention at last year’s All-Star game when the Mets hosted in Citi Field. Jeter could be in the spotlight this year. “All-Star game was in New York last year. It’s a little bit different,” Jeter said. “I don’t go into it with any expectations. Just trying to enjoy myself and have fun with whoever is here.” Among the big names bypassed were slugger David Ortiz and closer Koji Uehara from World Series champion Boston, San Francisco catcher Buster Posey, and Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett.

Eligible seniors can sign up for free medical eye exam members of the American Academy of Ophthalmology for their generosity in offering this program to seniors nationwide. Readers, this is important and I know the need is great. To find out if you or your loved ones qualify for this program, visit www. eyecareamerica.org. (The online application does not request financial information.)
Abigail Van Buren
DEAR ABBY: My in-laws are pressuring me to let them take our small children for overnights and trips around the city. I’m extremely uncomfortable about it because I don’t trust their supervision. They obviously love the kids, and I’m happy they’re in our children’s lives — as long as they come to our house to visit. There have been several instances in which they made some questionable decisions with respect to supervising my little ones in public. I have so far successfully dodged their requests, but it will be impossible to do it forever. If I tell them how I — and their son — feel, they will be hurt, especially because my parents
routinely watch the kids outside our home. What’s the best way to handle this with the least hurt feelings? — ST. LOUIS MOMMY DEAR MOMMY: This is something you and your husband will have to discuss with his parents TOGETHER. If you do it alone, you will forever be blamed for “favoring” your family over his. When the discussion happens, you should cite your reasons for feeling the way you do. I can’t promise there won’t be hurt feelings, because there probably already are, but your children’s safety must come first. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. What teens need to know about sex, drugs, AIDS and getting along with peers and parents is in “What Every Teen Should Know.” Send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby, Teen Booklet, P.O.

A baby born today has a Sun in Cancer and a Moon in Scorpio. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, July 7, 2014:This year you manifest creativity and determination, though not necessarily together. If you are in an artistic field, you will see more acknowledgment for your work. If you are single, you are likely to have a very intense love life. You could be overwhelmed by many different potential sweeties. If you are attached, you might discover that you have a new addition to the house. For some people, it might be a baby; for others, it could be a puppy, a new roommate or some other change involving your home. Watch a tendency to overspend. You are very emotional and sometimes have difficulties with your mood swings. SCORPIO is also emotional like you, but does not reveal their feelings as easily. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You might have a lot to think about, as a friend might express a little too much consideration for your comfort level. Your intuition comes into play. Could this person want to coax you in a certain direction? You might feel out of sync with others in general. One person could be particularly demanding. Tonight: Togetherness. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH Defer to others and see a situation for what it is. A loved one or partner could be aloof and touchy. Understand what is going on with this person. Conversations move forward, allowing you to gain insight. You are overly cautious with funds. Tonight: Listen to others and what they want. Note what isn’t said. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
HHHH Be aware of others’ needs and what they might require. Your feelings come forward, and you might be hesitant to pursue a certain path. Your sensitivity might be offended by another’s request. Be true to yourself no matter what goes down. Tonight: Stop at the gym. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You might want to understand more of what is motivating those around you. They might be coming from a place of negativity, but you can help them turn it around to a more positive attitude. Tap into your creativity. Tonight: Love blossoms. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH Make time for what you need and want to do. You might want to take a nap or have a discussion with a family member or roommate. Schedule time for a snooze or talk sometime during the day. Your instincts guide you with a domestic or personal matter. Tonight: Mosey on home. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Return calls while balancing other matters and errands. You could be quite touched by a comment from someone you respect. Be more aware of what is happening within your immediate circle.You might want to share your thoughts with a dear friend, loved one or partner. Tonight: Catch up on news with a friend. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH Curb a need to be overly possessive and demanding. You want situations to take the twists and turns you would like. You can only create so much, as you only have so much control. Be careful about spending. You easily could make a mistake. Tonight: Be more direct. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You might go out of your way to ease another person’s stress

Hints from Heloise
Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars level. Your sensitivity to the moment and other people allows for greater give-and-take. Be sure you want to proceed in your present chosen direction. If you opt to make a commitment, it will be likely to occur, but it will demand endurance. Tonight: What pleases you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You might want to see a situation move in a new direction — think again. The ramifications and what you would need to do could be more than what you are willing to do. Investigate an unusually creative idea. Could it really work? Tonight: Get some extra R and R. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Zero in on an objective outlined in a meeting. You might have a surprising response to this goal. Discuss and debate all you need to in order to root out a problem. You find that the obligations are far more serious than you’d anticipated. Tonight: Visit with a friend. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Notice that others look to you for advice and often admire your choices. Your unpredictability throws many people, as they don’t understand you well. Often what looks irrational to others is highly logical. You have often thought out your seemingly “impulsive” actions. Consider sharing your processing more often. Tonight: Working late. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH Read between the lines when someone makes what seems like an outrageous statement. Your feelings might be involved, making your detachment a must. What is being said probably has a deeper meaning than you are aware of and possibly has nothing to do with you. Tonight: Make sure music is involved.
Turmoil on the tube Dear Readers: Here is this week’s Sound Off, about cluttered television screens: “My Sound Off is cluttered-up TV screens. Why do stations run messages across the bottom of the screen, such as upcoming shows, viewer comments, etc.? If it is not a national disaster, I don’t want to know about it. Also, the station logo runs continuously in the corner, as though I don’t know what channel I’m watching. I have missed things that were important to the program I was watching (such as quiz-show answers). Does this annoy others as well?” — Gloria R., Highland, Ind. Yes, it does! TV screens can get very cluttered! I understand the need for some of it, but unfortunately, it’s the way things are now! My hint? I “record the show” and watch it a few minutes “behind” the live broadcast so I can dismiss that stuff and go back if I missed something. — Heloise Fast Facts Dear Readers: A few Heloise hints to fix clothing in an emergency situation: * A stapler can fix a hem or seam that comes undone. * Safety pins can pin buttons back on or close a small hole. * Use a rubber band looped through buttonholes to extend a waistband. * Clear nail polish on snagged panty hose will keep it from running more. — Heloise Secure connection Dear Heloise: Before I put a screw anchor in the wall, I add a little glue to it. Then I put the anchor in the drywall and the screw in. The glue helps the whole thing be a little more secure. — D.B., Stamps, Ark.

DEAR ABBY: I am an ophthalmologist, and all too often I see patients who have already lost some of their vision because they waited too long to schedule an appointment for an eye exam. Many times the reason was limited insurance or they couldn’t afford the co-pay. After helping nearly 1.8 million people, EyeCare America, a public service program of the Foundation of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, continues to match eligible seniors in need with volunteer ophthalmologists who provide a medical eye exam — and up to one year of care — at no out-of-pocket cost to the patient. This July, as we celebrate our country’s independence, invite your readers to also celebrate their personal independence by getting regular eye exams, especially as they age. Many eye diseases develop later in life. In fact, one in six people age 65 and older has a vision impairment that cannot be corrected with glasses or contact lenses. Please help to save your readers from the falls, injuries, depression and social isolation that are associated with vision loss and join me in spreading the word about EyeCare America. Thank you for your help. — CHARLES P. WILKINSON, M.D., CHAIR, EYECARE AMERICA DEAR DR. WILKINSON: You’re welcome. But I am the one who should thank you and the other
