Beating breast cancer inspired Logan to support Relay for Life
OBITUARIES Sean Miller, 57
By Ty Rushing Daily News Senior Staff Writer In the summer of 1983, Dot Logan was on break from her job teaching special education at Newton Senior High School when she noticed something different about her left breast. “At that time, I had a very large, rapid growing carcinoma, and then they removed that. What they did (next) was remove the breast, ” Dot said. Dot, 82, was in her 50s when she battled breast cancer. During this time, the Susan G. Coleman Foundation was in its infancy, funding and research wasn’t as ample as it is now, and
Academic fitness awards winners Page 7A
publicly discussing the disease was still considered somewhat of a taboo. For the next six months, Dot would undergo chemotherapy but said she didn’t require any radiation therapy. She also didn’t let her battle with cancer stop her from doing what she loved. “I loved every minute of it,” Dot said about teaching. “I liked working at the high school. I was busy and engaged in a career that I felt was worthwhile. I didn’t take any time off. It happened in the summer, but I didn’t start the chemotherapy until the fall. RELAY See Page 5A
Ty Rushing/Daily News Dot Logan sells luminarias in the lobby of Park Centre to support Relay for Life. She will be present from noon to 2 p.m. June 6, 9 and 10. Dot beat breast cancer in 1983 and has been helping support causes against the disease ever since. Jasper County Relay for Life is set for 6 to 11 p.m. Friday, June 13, at H.A. Lynn Stadium.

Umsted gives council update on Get To Know Newton By Zach Johnson Daily News Staff Writer
Reinders further explained many of the old buildings found around downtown Iowa, including Newton, still have plenty of life left in them and represent the historic identity to the town. “Some buildings are adapted for other innovative and multiple uses,” Reinders said. “And others are worth saving because they are a link to our past and help us understand who we are.” Reinders said older buildings are starting to become the trend in downtowns across the country. “There’s a concept in
Newton Management Analyst Natalie Umsted gave the Newton City Council an update Monday evening on the progress of the new branding since it was launched four months ago in February. “We have done a lot over the last four months,” Umsted said. “Our first goal of the “Get To Know Newton” brand campaign was to communicate and energize the Newton community through outreach and events. The second goal is to create an online presence through social media and gettoknownewton. com. The third goal is to take on some paid advertising through the central Iowa region.” Community leaders worked together for several month, talking about the strengths, weakness and challenges that Newton is facing to create a message built from a brand narrative. “Our overarching message that we want to tell Newton residents and the central Iowa community was Newton has a strong education system, excellent recreational facilities and an ideal central Iowa location,” Umsted said. “As you see, ‘Get To Know Newton’ advertising and messaging will be based around education, recreation and location.” The first goal of communicating and energizing the Newton community through outreach and events have been done in multiple ways.

Sheenna Bachman, registered nurse at Skiff Medical Center, was recognized for her kindness and compassion during the organization’s second 2014 DAISY award ceremony on May 6, which was also National Nurses Day. The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses was presented to Bachman following two nominations from family members of Russell Lewis. “Sheenna cared for my father–in-law while in hospice,” wrote Leona Lewis. “She never seemed to be in a hurry, she always spent extra

Building improvements include maintenance, facades, interior rehabilitations, floor conversions and renovations. Public improvements include everything between the buildings: streets, sidewalks, infrastructure and amenities. The presentation showed renovating downtown is not just about reconstructing downtown but rather preserving it. “Why should you want to preserve your downtown?” Reinders said. “Some buildings are worth saving because they are good to look at. They are a gift to the street that enriches their surroundings.”

Governor signs legislation on environmental testing Special to the Daily News Gov. Terry Branstad recently signed legislation on environmental testing authored by Sen. Dennis Black (D-Lynnville). Iowa is the only state in the nation where environmental testing services are required to collect sales taxes from their clients, placing testing laboratories located in Iowa, such as Keystone Laboratories in Newton, Waterloo and Kansas City, at a 7 percent disadvantage when competing with out-of-state testing firms. “This legislation will allow our industry to more easily compete, and, in the long run, we

“Jeff King and I have been working on getting this legislation passed for over a decade,” Black said. “In my opinion, it was an embarrassing impediment to Keystone Labs to have Iowa as the lone state in the country to require this sales tax. Fairness was the primary issue, and certainly frustrating to me and the testing industry. It was a moment of pride for me to have this legislation pass both houses during the final hours of my legislative career.” Newton’s Keystone Laboratory has a reputation as one of the Midwest’s top testing laboratories, employing 46 individuals at its three locations.

Environmental testing companies provide professional services to cities, counties, state governments and private enterprise in response to federal and state laws. The legislation had a difficult time in making it through the legislative process, with the Iowa Senate passing it in 2013 but the Iowa House not taking action on the bill until Black and Rep. Dan Kelley (D-Newton) forced consideration by combining the language to another bill at 2:15 a.m. on the final day of this year’s legislative session.

Cap it, and let’s have a real discussion Election night for a journalist is a bit hectic. After weeks and weeks of covering door knocking, roundtables and stumps speeches, elections culminate with a late night of number crunching, precinct data and phone calls to candidates who are probably ready for the interviews to stop. Election day is what Michael Scott from NBC’s The Office would call “Threat Level Midnight.” So after the polls closed and the results were tallied, I sat down By Mike for an evening of vegMendenhall ging. I turn on my T.V. Daily News Staff Writer set to find a Hollywood-esq, movie trailer style epic featuring Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds declaring to all Iowans that this is “our comeback” (as in Iowa’s comeback). The music could have been played over a Bruce Willis montage as he and a group of unlikely heroes prepare to save humanity from calamity. Only 24 hours out from the election, I knew we were in for a media blitz to November. Political ads, of course, are nothing new. But the increased frequency that we’ve seen in the past decade leaves voters feeling fatigued, and the message becomes white noise. According to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics, $64,835,806 had already been spent nationwide by Super Political Action Committees (PACs) during the 2014 midterm election cycle. Including trade associations, unions and other 501(c) (#) organizations, $108,564,610 has been spent. Most of this money is coming from groups not affiliated with the states in which the campaigns that receive the money are operating. This has been the same warning we’ve heard from political watchdog groups for the last several election cycles, but it continues to worsen with each passing election. The answer is still, and always has been, public financing. Let’s give each candidate the same amount of money, funded by the tax payers, to make their case. But influencing the balance of power has in our legislative chambers has become such a big part of a successful business plan for the contributors to Super PACs that we may never go back. With the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision Citizen United v. Federal Election Commission, the system has been degregulated even further and it might take a constitutional amendment to keep the interests in congressional campaigns local and the bank account equal for all candidates. The true citizens can attempt to unite and petition our lawmakers to move toward a fairly financed election system. But until then we’ll pop the popcorn, grab some couch and watch our potential leaders star in notso-must see T.V. Staff writer Mike Mendenhall may be contacted at email@example.com.
I am a dog person. Nothing makes me feel as if Earth is about to go spinning off its axis, flipping wildly into the abyss, more than folks who claim to be both a dog person and a cat person. Let me be clear: There is no such thing. It’s like being an Eagles fan and a Cowboys fan. A Pollyanna and an Ebenezer Scrooge. A lover of guardian angels and of the devil. Not that I’m saying cats are By Katiedid akin to LuciLangrock fer, but to be Creators Syndicate fair, I think we can all agree they have a little gleam of evil behind their eyes. Though I can accept that perhaps a person can be OK with both species, cat and dog, cohabiting the planet, I fundamentally believe that every person has a preference. Anyone who doesn’t is just unnatural — clearly suffering from some mommy issues that should be worked out through intensive therapy. Let me start by saying that I hate cats. I’m sorry; that was a little harsh. Let me try again. I hate cats. Oops! There it was again. I’ll try to rephrase: I am a dog person. Purely, completely, 100 percent. Well, it used to be 100 percent. This past weekend opened my eyes to how the other half lives. No longer do I believe that all cat lovers are little more than foolish prey, unknowingly making themselves vulnerable to
the catastrophic kitty uprising, in which all felines named Whiskers will unite in the dismemberment of their love-struck owners. Just some. Catpocalypse may seem extreme to you, but my feline fears are rooted in personal experience. For a stint after graduating college, I lived with my friend Emily. She was a year out of college and had settled nicely into adulthood with a teaching job, a fiance, an apartment and three cats. I, on the other hand, was working two full-time jobs waiting tables, homeless and crashing on Emily’s floor. A floor that I had to share with the enemy. Three of them. I never liked Emily’s cats. After all, they were cats. But my assuredness that felines are nothing but fur balls of malcontent was secured when I began waking up every night gasping for air, suffocating from the weight of the cats sitting on my face as they kneaded their claws into my shoulders. They’d hiss. They’d scratch. They’d unleash their homicidal tendencies by smothering the slumbering. It was a summer of scares. My fear of cats validated, my hatred of cats vindicated. Ten years has passed since those days, but when my son and I went to visit Emily last weekend, I was greeted by the same three furry foes. My son is an animal person. Watching him chase down anything that walks on four legs, I have had to come to accept that 1) he is too young to understand that though there is no wrong answer, he must decide whether to be a cat person or a dog person and that 2)
being a cat person is the wrong answer. For months, I have attempted to nonchalantly scoop my son off the sidewalk every time he has screeched in delight at the sight of a cat crossing our path, hoping he wouldn’t sense my fear. But here we were, in the enemies’ lair, and all my kid wanted to do was hang with the wolf in sheep’s clothing. My son is kind, but he isn’t quiet. He is gentle, but he isn’t wellbalanced. He screamed in the cats’ ears. Toppled over on their heads. Stepped on their tails. Chased them around the apartment. Drove the cats crazy. But my son couldn’t tell. Though my memory is filled with hisses and scratches and attempted murder through fur ball ingestion, the cats never once threatened or scared my baby. For the first moment in my life, I considered that cats may have one redeeming quality: selective homicidal tendencies. Just as my defenses were down, I saw the viral video of the house cat coming to the rescue of a little boy who was being attacked by a neighborhood dog. It was as if a cat took one of its terrifyingly long nails and sliced off a portion of my heart for felines. Now I’m 90 percent a dog person. That’s probably as low as I’ll go. The ancient Egyptians regarded cats as gods, to be revered and feared. Shouldn’t we trust the people who built the pyramids? Like Katiedid Langrock on Facebook, at www.facebook.com/katiedidhumor.
Neighborhood environmentalism: toward Democratic energy By Grant Mincy As a boy in the southeast African nation of Malawi, William Kamkwamba harnessed the wind. In 2002, drought and famine — common problems in one of the world’s leastdeveloped countries — forced the boy and his family to forage for food and water as thousands starved. Kamkwamba, however, knew if he could build a windmill he would bring water and electricity to his family. So he pulled together scrap metal, tractor parts and bicycles, constructing a peculiar, but functioning, windmill. The contraption was viewed as a miracle — it powered four lights and turned a water pump that ameliorated the crisis. News of his “electric wind” spread quickly and was emulated. Kamkwamba’s story is one of democratic energy and neighborhood environmentalism. Access to information left the boy free to replicate the science of windmills. After construc-
tion, his work spread throughout the region. This is a prime example of social power. The boy who harnessed the wind is testament to the power of two ideas: Open source content and co-operative labor. It is this kind of market approach, not sweeping policy from a centralized authority, that will meet the demands of the 21st century. Take the newly proposed United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulation that aims to reduce carbon emissions. Hailed as a historic action, its mechanisms leave much to be desired. Target emission reductions will be set for individual states. To meet these targets, states could renovate existing coal-fired power plants with “clean burning” technology — but clean coal is a dirty lie. States could switch to natural gas which produces less carbon — but natural gas emits methane at 21 times the greenhouse impact of carbon dioxide. State incentives to residents to
be more energy-efficient are low hanging fruit that can do much, but alone cannot likely get the job done. Or states can work under a cap-and-trade program through which offsets undercut reductions, allowing big polluters to continue business as usual. Furthermore, there still remain state enforced laws such as compulsory pooling and eminent domain which allow big polluters to disregard property rights and wreck natural habitats that naturally offer the ecosystem service of carbon sequestration. There still remain intellectual property laws that permit patent monopoly, producing a barrier to competition in the market that could drive polluters under the regulation standard. Conflict currently exists between the regulatory state and the energy elite, but it is latent. Utility monopolies such as Duke-Progress Energy and the Tennessee Valley Authority (among others), coupled with industry giants King Coal, Big Oil and Fracked
Gas have a lock on the energy market. Because of the state-capitalist system other market players (and people like you and I) remain economically dependent on these elite. The state knows this and is loyal to them. Its economic strength is fueled by the energy industry. The very institution of the state encourages environmental degradation and closed markets. It’s time to dismantle such an illegitimate authority. Taking democratic control of these institutions may be difficult, but for what it’s worth, I remain an optimist. We continue to strive for the beautiful ethic of liberty. Until actualized, may we begin to disassociate as much as possible and take a lesson from the boy who harnessed the wind. In the open source technological age, with the resources and infrastructure available to us, we can labor for neighborhood solutions and begin the magnificent struggle for democratic energy. In fact we already have.

Council Continued from Page 1A “One of the ways is by having Get To Know Newton team members and myself speak at community events and meetings,” Umsted said. “We have spoken at over a dozen community meetings over the last four months that include Chamber breakfast, Kiwanis and Rotary Club meetings.” The branding team has been hosting multiple events around Newton, with one of the major goals being to meet people where they were coming. “We hosted a night at the Valle Drive-In, filled with games and activities,” Umsted said. “The drive-in is one of those access points for lots of people outside of Newton. We looked around at license plates, and I would say that 75 percent of the plates were not Jasper County plates.” The biggest community outreach event was the opportunity to promote the community during the Get To Know Newton 250 NASCAR Nationwide race, which aired live on ESPN to a national audi-
ence of more than 2 million people. “In being the title sponsor, we were able to do a lot of outreach because of that,” Umsted said. “I expect that Newton will immediately experience a huge boom with that outreach that blows all our other outreaches out of the water.” During the race, the Get to Know Newton team set up Newton Street, a strip of the Iowa Speedway concourse filled with information on many organizations in Newton. “I thought it was a really good success, and people were having fun, but also people learned about Newton,” Umsted said. The second kind of outreach the team is using is classic print communication, publishing quarterly newsletters that are being distributed to 6,000 households. “We have had two of them come out so far, with another coming out in July,” Umsted said. The branding team has been sending monthly e-newsletters and now has 1,400 subscribers. The team also has looked at the newtongov.org website to

in the future.” Just because she’s a survivor doesn’t’ mean that Dot has ended her battle. Dot has become an advocate for fellow survivors and people battling cancer, and she has raised funds and participated in the Jasper County Relay for Life event since the early ‘90s. “As soon as I did hear about it, I felt I liked to be a part of it,” Dot said of RFL. “It’s a favorite cause from every stand point. We really do have to fight for a cure and expand research, treatment, education and prevention.” While participating in RFL, Dot has been representing teams from her church home, First Lutheran Church in Newton, and her place of residence Park Centre.

how people know every inch of Newton, and they can tell where it is within five minutes of posting the photo.” One of the goals of using social media is to create new conversations. “I don’t know if any of you are familiar with Raygun Tshirts, but they make kind of trendy shirts and are located in the East Village in Des Moines,” Umsted said. “Their T-shirts are usually very topical for cities or the State of Iowa. When they started to follow us on Twitter, we tweeted back, saying we liked their shirts (and asking if they would) consider a speedway design. Conversations with journalists and other people are happening now via Twitter.” The second part of using social media is the encouragement for people to participate in the conversation about Newton by using the hash-tag “KnowNewton” across all of the platforms that the branding uses. “It’s really encouraging people to be using social media to communicate about Newton in a positive way,” Umsted said.

It’s updated all the time making our website more valuable and a better tool in letting our citizens interact with us.” Since the launch of the brand and the race, the Newton community is filled with banners and signs. “We have had rotating banner stands that have been displayed at Skiff Medical Center and YMCA as well as some of our facilities,” Umsted said. “We also have banners in the downtown area and out by the speedway.” The Get To Know Newton brand is on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

DENNIS THE MENACE

Husband’s betrayal puts his wife’s health at risk
DEAR ABBY: I just found out my husband was arrested for being with a hooker. My in-laws (whom I love and adore) bailed him out of jail. No one said a word about it to me. I don’t know how to confront all of them with the fact that I know about this “dirty little secret.” What should I do? — BETRAYED WIFE DEAR BETRAYED: First, visit your gynecologist and ask to be treated for every STD known to man. Then invite your in-laws to a “family dinner,” tell them the cat is out of the bag and ask why this was kept from you. And while you’re at it, ask your mother-in-law (whom you love and adore) how SHE would feel if your father-in-law had possibly exposed her to an STD and it had been kept from her. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. DEAR ABBY: I’ll bet this is an issue in many homes. When my son “Chet” graduated from high school, we gave him a very nice graduation party, which included his friends and family. He received many gifts. I gave my son thank-you cards, stamps, and a detailed list of whom to send the cards to. So far, he has refused. Chet is normally thoughtful and considerate. I don’t know what to do. I’m embarrassed by his lack of gratitude. I have told him we have received thank-yous from his friends and that the cards can be brief. Should I send the thank-you notes myself, or just let it go? — EMBARRASSED MOM IN CALIFORNIA DEAR MOM: If the amount of mail I receive from readers complaining that their gifts are not acknowledged is an accurate barometer, your problem is very common. Without being confrontational, ask your son why he refuses to thank the people who gave him gifts. If the answer is he doesn’t know what to say and he’s embarrassed that he has procrastinated, offer to help him by making suggestions. You’re right; the thank-yous don’t have to be lengthy. But DO NOT write them for him. Chet is a big boy and the responsibility is his.
DEAR ABBY: I am a divorced, single woman in my 50s. I love my grandchildren dearly but am faced with a dilemma. I work full-time and take my grandchildren some nights and on the one day I have off — usually on weekends. I can’t plan things on a weekend without feeling I have made it difficult for my son and his wife to find someone to watch their children. Her mom, a stay-at-home wife, watches them several days a week. I want to continue spending time with my grandkids, but I also want the freedom to be there when I choose to be. I realize finding a sitter you can afford and trust to watch your children is a challenge. I have tried talking to my son, but it doesn’t seem to get through to him. I know I need to do something, but what? I’m afraid I won’t see the kids at all if I take a stand. — LADY ON THE LAKE IN MICHIGAN DEAR LADY: Check your calendar and plan some time for yourself — one or two weekends a month. Then tell your son and his wife which ones you will be AVAILABLE. Free baby-sitting services are hard to come by, and you are not giving yourself enough credit. If the unspoken threat is that it’s “all or nothing,” then, frankly, you should step back further and let your son and daughter-in-law shoulder even more responsibility for the children they brought into this world.

10 ways to use chia seeds in foods By Emily Ring, RD LD Newton Hy-Vee Dietician Chia seeds are all the rage these days and with good reason. These seeds are a powerhouse of nutrition. Four grams of fiber are found in every tablespoon of chia seeds. Fiber may be beneficial in blood glucose control, weight management, digestive health, cancer prevention and heart health. Most of us think of fish when we hear omega-3 fats; however, chia seeds are also a very good source of these fats. Omega-3 fats are good fats and may be important to brain health as well as heart health. Besides being a source of fiber and omega-3 fats, chia is a good source of antioxidants. The next time you are looking to include chia in a meal, look no further than this list of 10 great ideas. Here are 10 great ways to use chia: • Smoothies or Yogurt - Add 1 tablespoon of chia to your favorite smoothie or yogurt • Pudding - Make a delicious pudding using chia and milk or milk alternative • Baked Goods - Add some chia to the recipe

Doctors use immune therapy against cervical cancer CHICAGO (AP) — Two years ago, Arrica Wallace was riddled with tumors from widely spread cervical cancer that the strongest chemotherapy and radiation could not beat back. Today, the Kansas mother shows no signs of the disease, and it was her own immune system that made it go away. The experimental approach that helped her is one of the newest frontiers in the rapidly advancing field of cancer immunotherapy, which boosts the body’s natural ways of attacking tumors. At a conference in Chicago on Monday, doctors also reported extending gains recently made with immune therapies against leukemia and the skin cancer melanoma to bladder, lung and other tumor types.

ment was the first time an immune therapy has worked so dramatically against a cancer caused by a virus — HPV. In a pilot study by the National Cancer Institute, the tumors of two out of nine women completely disappeared and those women remain cancer-free more than a year later. That’s far better than any other treatment has achieved in such cases. Doctors are trying it now against throat, anal and other cancers caused by HPV, the human papillomavirus, and think it holds promise for cancers caused by other viruses, too. Wallace enrolled in the study, and researchers removed one of her tumors, isolated special immune system cells that were attacking it, multiplied them in the lab and gave
billions of them back to her in a one-time infusion. They also gave her drugs to boost her immune response — “like Gatorade for the cells,” she said. “It’s been 22 months since treatment and 17 months of completely clean scans” showing no sign of cancer, Wallace said. Doctors are trying the treatment on several dozen more women with advanced cervical cancer and it could someday be offered at many cancer centers the way bone marrow and stem cell transplants are now. Immune therapy struggled for years with just occasional small gains, but “now we have cruise missiles” giving better kill rates against many tumor types, said Dr. Steven O’Day of the University of Southern California.

Newton baseball falls in LHC opener By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NORWALK — Newton’s Cardinal baseball players were stymied at the plate by the pitching of Norwalk senior Austin Lavelle Wednesday night. In their Little Hawkeye Conference opener, the Cardinals were held to two hits and struck out nine times against Lavelle. Newton dropped a 4-0 decision to the hosting Warriors, who notched their first win of the season. Newton and Norwalk are both 1-4 overall. The Cardinals are 0-1 in LHC play and the Warriors are 1-0.

NORWALK — Newton’s Cardinals just got on the scoreboard. They were down 5-1 after four innings. It was still a ballgame. Unfortunately, Norwalk’s Warriors struck for six runs in the bottom of the sixth to close the door on the visiting Newton girls. Newton lost 11-1 in its Little Hawkeye Conference opener Wednesday night. “We have to make the plays. We can’t have a routine out turn into an error,” said Newton softball head coach Ashley Ryan. Norwalk scored twice in the first inning, once in the second and two more times in the third to build a 5-0 lead. Newton scratched out a run in the top of the fourth. Sydney Jenkins and Lizzie Stock had back-toback singles for the Cardinals in the fourth inning. With one out, Madison Bagnal was hit by a pitch. Jenkins scored the lone run for Newton. The Cardinals stranded six baserunners in the game. “We need to be able to adjust at the plate better,” Ryan said, after the Cardinals only had three hits in the contest. Bagnal connected for a single in the game. Stock took the pitching loss. She allowed 13 hits, walked four and struck out three. Norwalk’s six-run fifth inning was highlighted by a two-run home run by Katie Elliott. The Warriors are 5-0 overall. Newton is 0-4 on the season and 0-1 in Little Hawkeye Conference play.

Area baseball/softball roundup Greene Co. beats CMB softball
C-M softball tops S. Hamilton
PCM baseball loses in shutout

Collins-Maxwell/Baxter scored early Wednesday night, but Greene County scored often. CMB suffered its third loss of the season in a 6-1 defeat at Greene County. The Raiders were held in check most of the night by opposing pitcher Marissa Promes, who threw a completegame five-hitter for Greene County. CMB’s lone run of the game came in the second inning when freshman Mikayla Eslinger hit her first career home run for a 1-0 Raider lead. Eslinger finished the game 3-for-3 at the plate. Promes didn’t give up much from that point on as she finished the game with 11 strikeouts and no walks. Greene County tied the game in the third and took the lead in the next inning by scoring an unearned run. The Rams then roughed up CMB starting pitcher Heather Jessen for four more runs in the sixth, all but ending the game.
COLFAX — The Tigerhawks pounded out 14 hits and earned their second win of the week in a 11-4 victory over South Hamilton Wednesday night. South Hamilton led, 3-1, heading into the bottom of the third inning when ColfaxMingo batted around the order. Singles from Amy Russell and Erin Earles helped tie the game and then Brooke Nicholson gave the Tigerhawks the lead for good on a two-RBI double to right field. Colfax-Mingo added three runs in both the fourth and fifth innings, which was more than enough support for its starting pitcher, Russell. The freshman threw all seven innings and struck out 10 batters while allowing one earned run. The Tigerhawks also beat Colo-Nesco, 6-2, in a rain-shortened game Tuesday night.
PRAIRIE CITY — The hits were even between Roland-Story and Prairie City-Monroe Wednesday night. The end result was anything but. Class 2A No. 3 Roland Story shutout the Mustangs, 4-0, despite both teams knocking out five hits each. Junior Chase Keuning suffered his second loss of the year on the mound for PCM in an otherwise decent outing. The right hander allowed two earned runs and struck out two in six innings. Two errors cost PCM (3-2) early in the game as the Norsemen scored three runs in the second inning and one more in the third. Keuning went 2-for-3 at the plate and was the only Mustang to record more than one hit off Roland-Story starter Alex Muhlenburg, who pitched a complete game.
Longtime baseball ﬁxture Don Zimmer dies ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Don Zimmer, a popular fixture in professional baseball for 66 years as a manager, player, coach and executive, died Wednesday. He was 83. Zimmer was still working for the Tampa Bay Rays as a senior adviser, and the team confirmed he had died. Zimmer had been in a rehabilitation center in Florida since having seven hours of heart surgery in mid-April. After starting as a minor league infielder in 1949, Zimmer went on to have one Zimmer of the longest-lasting careers in baseball history. Zimmer played for the only Brooklyn Dodgers team to win the World Series, played for the original New York Mets, nearly managed the Boston Red Sox to a championship in the 1970s and was Joe Torre’s right-hand man with the New York Yankees’ most recent dynasty. Zimmer was easily recognizable for the big chaw that always seemed to be in his cheek, and his storytelling was a treat for anyone lucky enough to hear him. Beloved by many, his No. 66 jersey had been worn recently by longtime Tampa Bay third base coach Tom Foley in tribute. The Rays hosted the Miami Marlins on Wednesday night, and Foley was crying in the dugout. Along the way, Zimmer played for Hall of Fame manager Casey Stengel and coached Derek Jeter — quite a span, by any major league measure. It wasn’t always easy, either. Early in his career, he was beaned by a fastball and doctors had to put metal screws in his head. Many years later, Boston pitcher Pedro Martinez tossed Zimmer to the ground during a fight between the Red Sox and Yankees at Fenway Park in the playoffs. “Probably the best baseball man I knew,” Billy Connors, who coached under Zimmer on the Cubs, told The Associated Press on Wednesday night. “We had a lot of great times. I loved listening to him every day,” he said.
Cardinals bounce back, beat Royals in 11 innings KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Matt Carpenter had a career-high five hits, including the go-ahead double in the 11th inning, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Kansas City Royals 5-2 on Wednesday night to snap a three-game losing streak. After the Royals rallied with two runs in the ninth, Peter Bourjos worked a one-out walk off Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera (1-2) in the 11th. Carpenter then rapped his double to center field, drawing a roar from a crowd comprised mostly of Cardinals fans. Allen Craig added a two-run single off Tim Collins later in the inning, and Pat Neshek breezed through the bottom half to end the Royals’ sixgame winning streak against National League clubs. Sam Freeman (1-0) earned the win with a perfect 10th inning. Carpenter became the first Cardinal to record five hits in a game since Ryan Ludwick on Sept. 4, 2009. He had a part in his club’s first three runs, driving in Mark Ellis in the second inning and scoring on Matt Holliday’s groundout in the seventh The Cardinals persevered after Adam Wainwright blew a 2-0 lead in the ninth inning. He struck out Eric Hosmer to start it, but the ball
squirted away from catcher Yadier Molina, allowing Hosmer to reach first base. Billy Butler followed with a crisp single up the middle. Trevor Rosenthal, who took the loss Tuesday night, entered in relief and walked Alex Gordon on a full count to load the bases. Salvador Perez followed with a broken-bat groundout to score a run, and Lorenzo Cain’s single up the middle knotted the game 2-all. The ninth-inning rally wasted a dazzling bounce-back start by Wainwright, who was trying to become the NL’s first nine-game winner. The two-time All-Star did not allow a hit until the sixth inning, stranded three runners on third base and struck out eight while walking just two. Wainwright wasn’t the only Cardinal to get on track, either. Molina had hits in his first two at-bats, snapping an 0-for-16 streak. Ellis ended an 0-for-8 stretch with his single in the second that led to the game’s first run. Jason Vargas kept Kansas City in it most of the night. After leaving the bases loaded in the first inning, he went on strand 10 in a season-high eight innings. The left-hander allowed nine hits and walked two while allowing two runs or fewer for the fifth time in six starts.
Cubs to leave WGN Radio after 90 years CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs are ending their partnership with WGN Radio, one of the longest such relationships in broadcast history. WGN Radio president Jimmy de Castro confirmed Wednesday media reports that the Cubs are leaving the station after this season. The radio station has been the Cubs’ radio home for 90 years. The Cubs say they’ll hold a news conference Thursday at Wrigley Field to announce a longterm broadcast deal with CBS-owned WBBMAM. Cubs announcers Pat Hughes and Ron Coomer are expected to continue calling the team’s games. De Castro says that parting ways was a difficult decision for the station. But he says the decision
was made after the station determined the business deal the Cubs insisted on did not make economic sense for the station, which first broadcast the team’s games in 1925. The Cubs haven’t had a winning team for several years, losing 288 games over the last three years, which has affected advertising revenue, according to de Castro. As a result, the radio station has lost money and would have continued to lose money had the team decided to renew its contract with the broadcast outlet. The station exercised an opt-out provision in the contract last fall due to falling ratings and revenue. That move followed the Cubs’ decision to opt out of their WGN-TV deal to seek better long-term regional TV rights fees.
Heat, Spurs start NBA Finals tonight SAN ANTONIO (AP) —
LeBron James and Dwyane Wade can point to statistics showing just how close the 2013 NBA Finals were. Tim Duncan doesn’t need them. He can’t forget the way his San Antonio Spurs lost, especially since every replay brings another painful reminder. The Spurs were on the verge of celebrating a fifth title in Game 6, and just two nights later were congratulating the Miami Heat on their second straight crown. The Spurs wanted a rematch, and so did basketball fans. It begins Thursday in San Antonio. “I think it’s great that these two franchises have this opportunity in back-to-back years to compete for a championship,” Wade said Wednesday. “Last year was an unbelievable series and ... it went down to the very end. We won the series by a total of five points, you know? That’s how close it was. But it was a very even series. I think this year it could be another great series.” From Tony Parker’s circus shot that stole Game 1 for the Spurs, to Ray Allen’s 3-pointer that saved Game 6 for the Heat, to James’ jumper that put away Game 7, almost every contest provided a new highlight. It deserved an encore, just
like when the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers seemed to pick up right where they left off in the 1980s. The NBA hasn’t had a finals rematch since 1998, when Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls beat Utah for the second straight season. San Antonio is considered a slight favorite this time, perhaps a little deeper, healthier and better than it was last year, and owning the home-court advantage this time. The Spurs don’t need to change much to change the result. They outscored the Heat 684-679 over seven games, and there were 47 ties and 42 lead changes, according to STATS. “If you look at the numbers, the lead changes, the ties and the points in that series, it’s almost even,” James said. “So we did our part, they did their part. “Both teams put themselves in a position to win an NBA champion-
ship, and we just happened to make one or two more plays to win it.” Duncan, a three-time NBA Finals MVP who had been 4 for 4 at this stage, wasn’t on the floor when the Spurs couldn’t come up with a rebound just before Allen’s shot. He then missed a shot and follow attempt from right in front of the basket in the final minute of Game 7 with San Antonio trailing by two. Not even getting back to the finals again with the league’s best record can make him forget. “It lasts. I have a very good memory, especially for my misses and losses. You keep those, you learn from them and you hope to change them next time,” Duncan said. “That stuck with me and obviously it’s always in the back of my mind, and every time I see anything to do with that, it pops right back in.” James had similar regrets in his first finals with Miami in 2011, but it’s been all smiles since. The Heat are the first team to play in four straight finals since Boston from 1984-87, and can become the first three-time champion since the Lakers more than a decade ago. But their focus is only on winning the next title, not reminiscing about the last couple. “Last year is last year and we’re
excited about it, but this trophy this year belongs to nobody,” James said. “It’s up for grabs.” Both teams have reason to think they will win it. Wade is much healthier than last year, when he needed extensive treatment before Game 7, and the Heat have been able to get him extra rest by losing just three games in the first three rounds. The Spurs’ Manu Ginobili is also in much better shape this year and Patty Mills has emerged as an effective point guard off the bench, giving San Antonio options if Parker is slowed by the sore left ankle that knocked him out of Game 6 of the Western Conference finals. It’s the sixth finals for the Spurs since 1999 and Miami’s fifth in nine years, but both face uncertain futures. Duncan, Parker, Ginobili and coach Gregg Popovich could be near the end of their run together. James, Wade and Bosh can all become free agents this summer. That’s for July. For now, maybe the teams can duplicate last June. “You hope it’s going to be a great series for both teams’ sake, for the fans that love our game,” James said. “You hope it can be one of the great finals appearances.” Just like last year.

This is a particularly graceful Virgo moon, flitting through the cosmic landscape, forming auspicious angles, tossing out flirtatious intentions and agreeing with several planets at the party while daring to defy the host, the Gemini sun. An afternoon squared aspect to the sun may very well bring about the most interesting part of the day.
for as long as you can remain unconcerned about what the others think.
