NewCare doctor offers care for complex medical issues By Stephanie Alexander Special to the Daily News Almost one year has passed since Dr. Showkat Hamid joined the medical practice of NewCare Health Services and while the ownership of the clinic has recently changed, the high quality of care has not. Dr. Hamid, an internal medicine physician, is joined at the practice by nurse practitioners Jodi Holloway and Alissa Kruger, and shares hospital responsibilities at Skiff Dr. Hamid Medical Center with the doctors of Newton Clinic. This collaboration has come about due to the recent acquisition of NewCare by Jasper County Health Ventures ( JCHV ), which is a joint venture between Newton Clinic and Skiff Medical Center.

Guest Commentary

A modest proposal Al Jazeera recently covered Chattanooga, Tennessee’s high-speed Internet service (“As Internet behemoths rise, Chattanooga highlights a different path,” June 6). The “Gig,” as it’s affectionately known, operates at one gigabyte per second — about 50 times the U.S. average — charging each customer about $70 a month. It uses a preexisting fiber-optic infrastructure originally built for the electrical power utility. A couple of little-known facts regarding local Internet infrastructure:  Telecommunications companies were given billions in subsidies and phone service rate hikes back in the ’90s based on their promise to build local fiber-optic infrastructure for high-speed Internet access — then they simply pocketed the money and never built that infrastructure. The original promise was something like the kind of ultra-high-speed, low-price Internet service available in most of Western Europe. You can get a lot of the facts at the website Teletruth.org. Today, telecommunications infrastructure construction by these companies is down by about 60 percent, while revenues are way up. Instead of near-instant page loads for $40 a month, it’s typical to get gouged for more than $100 and suffer slow speeds and wireless connections that constantly fade out. Believe me, I know — I get my wireless service from AT&T U-verse, and they suck more than a galactic-size black hole. This is a classic example of the oligopoly style Paul Goodman described of the companies in an industry carefully spooning out improvements over many years, while colluding to mark up prices. The telecoms, far from building out their infrastructure to increase capacity, are stripmining their existing infrastructure and using it as a cash cow while using oligopoly pricing to guarantee enormous profits on shoddy service. Hundreds of cities around the United States have high-capacity municipal fiber-optic networks just like Chattanooga’s, originally built to support local government communication functions, but they’re forbidden by law in most states (passed in response to telecom lobbying) from using those to offer Internet service to the general public. Not only that, the telecommunications industry raises hell in the state legislatures even when local school districts propose using their own fiber-optic infrastructure to provide Internet service to the public schools instead of paying Verizon, Cox or AT&T for their sorry products. These telecom companies — which received billions on subsidies for a service they failed to deliver — have the nerve to whine that it’s unfair for them to have to compete with a service subsidized by the taxpayers. So here’s my proposal: In any community like Chattanooga, with an existing fiber-optic infrastructure capable of providing better quality Internet service to a significant part of town, this infrastructure should immediately be put to use for this purpose, with rates set at actual cost of provision. But instead of being administered by the city government, it should be spun off as a consumer cooperative owned and governed by the users. In Cory Doctorow’s novel Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town, dumpster-diving hardware hackers in Toronto attempt to construct a free wireless meshwork using open-source routers built from discarded electronics, persuading neighborhood businesses to host the routers at the cost of electricity. In the real world, schools, public libraries and municipal buildings could host such routers and provide free wireless access to those in the areas covered. In fact, why not take it a step further? Forty years ago, in “Confiscation and the Homestead Principle,” Murray Rothbard argued that government property should be treated as unowned, that it should be claimed (via homesteading) as the property of those actually occupying and using it, and that government services should accordingly be reorganized as consumer or worker cooperatives. Further, he argued that the property of “private” corporations that get most of their profits from state intervention should get the same treatment. The way I see it, the telecom companies that pocketed those subsidies and rate increases back in the ’90s owe customers about $200-odd billion, plus all the profits they’ve subsequently collected via price-gouging. So when local communities with municipal fiber-optic infrastructure organize those Internet service cooperatives like I describe above, they might as well go ahead and void out the telecom companies’ property claims to the “private” infrastructure as well and incorporate that infrastructure into the consumer cooperatives. Those who follow the “net neutrality” debate are rightly outraged that Internet service providers are threatening to gouge customers based entirely on their ability to pay, simply because they can. But the proper expression of this outrage is not hacking at the branches through regulatory legislation. It’s striking at the root: The ability of the telecom companies, thanks to government subsidies and privilege, to get away with such behavior. It’s time to expropriate the expropriators.

Empty Nest

From river rat to union negotiator Five-year-old Renae Roberts looked up from the mile-long rows of soybeans. The sun was beginning to scorch, and the mosquitoes and heat made it difficult to breath. The machete she was using to chop volunteer corn, its split handle wrapped in black electrical tape, was blistering her hand. R e n a e ’s two years older brother, Steve, was ahead of her, swinging his machete like a golf club, volunteer By Curt Swarm corn flying. Guest Columnist She could see his lips moving, and knew he was cussing, something never allowed at home. Their clothes were soaked from dew, but in another hour it would be too hot, and they could quit for the day — go swimming off the sandbar in the Mississippi. That morning, their mother had set the clock ahead an hour, tricking them into getting up and out into the field early.  A rotten trick, if you asked Renae, but effective. The year was 1959.  Renae had to urinate. Steve was far enough ahead that he couldn’t see her, if she hid in the beans. She broke off a button weed leaf, its velvety underside would do for toilet paper. She had just squatted down when she heard a noise behind her. She froze. Someone or something was coming. If Steve was up to one of his tricks, she would pelt him with dirt clods. The sound grew closer. A head poked through the bean rows.  It was Billy, her pet raccoon. Renae also had two pet squirrels that had been blown from their nest in a storm. She bottle fed lambs on the back porch, and got her hand pecked while gathering eggs. She would witness her mother beat the odds against cancer and survive until she was 80. Renae and Steve were the sixth generation to live on the family farm, five miles east of Kingston, near Meeker’s Landing on the Mississippi River. Renae’s great grandfather had built and lived in a log cabin on the farm. He had a sawmill and was a well-known dairy farmer. Everyday, he would take his milk across the river in a rowboat to Oquawka, Ill., because it was closer than driving to Burlington. Renae’s mother, riding a horse five miles one way, was the

first in the family to go to high school. Renae would be the first to graduate from college, going first to what was then Burlington Junior College, then Iowa Wesleyan College in Mt. Pleasant. On Sundays, the family would visit friends and relatives. There was never a call ahead to let them know you were coming. You just showed up. The visit always included a tour of the yard and garden. With a trowel or spade in hand, slips of plants were dug and given as gifts, a show of friendship. No “thanks” were ever mentioned.  German stock didn’t show emotion.  The tour was a walk of remembering, a memorial garden.  “This was Melba’s.” “This was Aunt Martha’s. She had the most beautiful peonies.” Fast forward to today. Renae is the big six-zero. She lives in Illinois, but often returns to Burlington to be close to home and the river. Renae has spent 23 years in the Chicago area as an elementary-school teacher, and 15 years in the teachers’ union as a negotiator. She is thankful for her river upbringing and believes it equipped her well for a career in education and interest-based bargaining/problem solving.

He was selected to serve as a member of the U.S. medical delegation at the 2003 Pan American Games in the Dominican Republic, the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, and has traveled extensively with the USA Triathlon team. He is a past President of the Iowa Physical Therapy Association. Recently, Altman was named to the Advisory Council of the Iowa Healthcare Collaborative. Altman is a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, which is the highest standard of certification for health-care management.

I also enjoy the continuity of care and collaboration with my colleagues down the street, and I appreciate them utilizing my services when they have patients with complex and high-risk conditions.” “Dr. Hamid is a talented internist who greatly supplements the services provided at Skiff Medical Center and in the health-care community,” said Mark Thayer, clinic administrator for Newton Clinic and JCHV. “He has received world-class training in New York and is board-certified in

In addition to Toastmasters, Altman is an active member of the Newton Kiwanis and currently serves on the elder board at Community Heights Alliance Church. Altman and his wife of 22 years, Sarah, have four children ages 8 through 14. In addition to naming Altman as CEO, the board officially accepted the recommendation of an outside assessment team, Clifton|Larson|Allen, that Skiff should begin the pro-

In the fairly short time Dr. Hamid has been in Newton, he has been called upon numerous times to co-manage patient care.” As an internist, Dr. Hamid treats adults ages 18 and older for both acute and chronic conditions, as well as providing preventative medicine. He knew from a fairly early age that medicine was the career path for him. “I always scored high in the sciences and enjoyed learning, challenges and competition,” he said. “And I had such admiration of physicians when I would go to them as a child. It seemed they knew everything. I wanted to possess that kind of knowledge.” Dr. Hamid received his initial medical education from Govt.

Specifically, the board directed the senior leadership team to establish an affiliation team and develop a specific strategy to move this process along as quickly as possible. The board also directed that Altman, in his new role as CEO, devote the majority of his time to leading this effort. To ensure this is possible, the board has approved the development of the position of interim Chief Administrative Officer, who will provide senior-level leadership for the day-to-day administrative, support and financial functions at Skiff; this position will be filled by an external candidate.

They took care of the sickest patients, ran codes, ran ICUs. Even surgeons would ask advice from the internists. Once I decided I wanted to make internal medicine my field of expertise, I moved to the United States to further my medical training.” Dr. Hamid joined SUNY at Buffalo as an internal medicine resident. He finished his post-graduate training in June 2013 and started at NewCare that August. “As I was interviewing at various locations for employment, I found that I kept comparing every other place to Newton,” he said. “It soon became clear to me that it was the best fit.

One of my teenage daughters was recently admitted to Skiff by Dr. Hamid for a difficult-to-diagnose medical condition and I can say from this personal experience that Dr. Hamid combines a very personal bedside manner with a thoroughness that is just outstanding.” Dr. Hamid’s areas of expertise include diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obstructive lung disease, perioperative medicine and preventative medicine.

To prevent poison ivy outbreaks, learn to identify these plants and avoid contact with them. These plants have a compound leaf made up of three leaflets. They can grow low to the ground or as a shrub or as a climbing vine. A unique feature of the leaflets is that the center leaflet has a stalk, but the two side leaflets do not, they are attached directly to the stem. The side leaflets can have one smooth edge and one jagged edge that give them a sort of “mitten” shape. Another identifying characteristic is that the vines have a fuzzy or hairy appearance. Every part of the plant is poisonous and can cause a reaction.

THE BORN LOSER

FAMILY CIRCUS

Having a baby won’t fix fighting couple’s problems DEAR ABBY: Lately I have been having problems with my live-in boyfriend, “Ethan.” We fight about everything, and he refuses to admit when he’s wrong. Ethan has been sleeping on the couch for a week waiting for me to take the first step and reconcile. He isn’t working and I am, and that is probably what has him so mad. I pay all the bills, and he thinks I feel superior because I’m bringing in money and he’s not. We argue day and night, swear and scream at each other, and he does not appreciate everything I’m doing so we can survive. I have two daughters, he has one, and I’m supporting all of us. Do you think it’s a good idea for us to have a baby? Ethan is desperate for a child with me — even though we can’t get along or communicate. — MARY JANE IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR MARY JANE: Not only do I think it’s not a good idea, but I think it’s a terrible idea. Babies are expensive, and you’re already carrying a heavy load. I suspect that Ethan thinks a baby will fix what’s wrong in your relationship, but he’s wrong. Don’t do it! It would be a huge mistake. DEAR ABBY: In the summer of 1995, I was a 12-year-old girl living in a motel in a suburb of Cleveland with my mother, older brother and younger sister. We were poor and very hungry. My mother led my younger sister and me to a doughnut shop for our only meal of the day. After waiting for everyone to leave, my mother approached the young woman behind the counter and asked to buy some doughnuts with our foreign coins. It was the only money we had. Instead of turning us away, she told my mother: “We’re allowed to give away a certain number of free doughnuts every day. Just tell me what you want.” (I don’t know if this was true.) It was because of her kindness that my family ate that day. If that kind woman is reading this, I want to say: “Thank you. You made the hunger go away for just a little bit, so a

mother and her children could go a day without pain. You remain forever in a little girl’s heart.” — URSALA IN MESSINA, ITALY DEAR URSALA: I, too, hope your benefactor sees your letter. Her generosity that day provided nourishment not only for your bodies, but also for your faith in the humanity of others — and I am sure you have emulated her example in the years that have followed. After all, isn’t that what acts of kindness are all about? DEAR ABBY: Once a year I invite my mother, who lives in Arizona, to visit me in California. This year, Mom has decided to bring one of my sisters along because “she really needs a vacation.” My sisters live in the same city as Mom and can visit her anytime they please. I see Mom once a year at most, and I do not want to share my limited time with her. How do I let my sisters know they’re not welcome without causing a family rift? — WANTS QUALITY TIME WITH MOM DEAR WANTS: You shouldn’t have to tell your sisters. The person you need to tell is your mother, who should not have invited anyone without clearing it with you first. Because you’re having trouble with what to say to her, read her the second paragraph of your letter to me. She may have been well-meaning, but she was misguided.

Van Gorp finds perfect fit in life, business with Ooh La La Fashion Boutique By Zach Johnson Daily News Staff Writer Since February, Ooh la la Boutique owner Tonya Van Gorp has found owning her own boutique has been a perfect fit for her life. “My mom’s side of the family lives in Omaha and they’re big shoppers.” Tonya said. “Whenever I am around they love to take me out and go shopping at little boutiques.” Those shopping trips gave Tonya the dream of one day wanting to open her own boutique. “My aunts have always wanted me to open up my own boutique, because she always said, ‘I would be so good at it,’” Tonya said. “I loved the idea, but knew it probably wasn’t going to happen.” On one shopping trip, Tonya and her aunts found a little fashion boutique called “Ooh la la,” Tonya felt a connection with this boutique. “I told them if I ever do open a boutique I would call it ‘Ooh La La Fashion Boutique.’” About five years later, Tonya would find herself on a journey that would eventually lead up to the opening of the boutique. “I have been looking for a job for a while, which isn’t easy,” Tonya said. “I went to DMACC to make my resume look a little better to try to find an office job I am kind of glad it didn’t work out because its certainly not me and this is just me— perfectly.” In February, Tonya found herself surround-

{{

ed by her family and friends and opened up Ooh la la Boutique inside Aleya Salon and Spa. “My family loved finding out that I was going to open a boutique,” Tonya said. “They still keep asking about when am I going to have my grand open house, so they can come back to shop some more.” Having been born and raised in Newton, Tonya has found opening up a business in her hometown has given her a unique sense of community. “You really get that sense of community as certain customers come in and instantly have a connection with them and they feel like family to me,” Tonya said. “We just bond like that and it seems everyone gets to know who you are. It’s nice to be known in your town.” Having her boutique inside Aleya has been a perfect fit for Tonya as many of her repeat customers are Aleya customers. “I love being in Aleya and I love everyone there,” Tonya said. “I love it all from the accessories to the hats and handbags. Also owning my own business and being able to come in and being able to do something that I enjoy is great as well. I have had so many people come in and express how happy they were that I opened the boutique and that it’s perfect for me because they know me as a person.” The boutique sells

fashion accessories, jewelry, “blingy” hats and handbags along with an assortment of unique accessories that can make for a great gift for someone or yourself. One of the distinct goals for Tonya is having women’s apparel at the boutique. “I have been to one market so far, but didn’t have much luck with women’s apparel,” Tonya said. “I would like to get a denim line, which I am kind of working on right now through working with different apparel markets.” Tonya’s goal with the women’s apparel is making sure it’s a perfect fit for the boutique year round throughout the seasons. “I want it to be

unique,” Tonya said. “I’m making sure the apparel looks like it came from a boutique rather than something you can just buy at Target or WalMart. Something trendy and something that many people haven’t seen before or too much of. If it’s at market it will be a big hit usually, but remaining very unique is what I would want to carry for apparel.” The last goal Tonya has before the end of her first year of owning the botique is having an online store. Ohh la la Boutique is located in the front store suite and suite nine in Aleya Salon and Spa. The phone number of the boutique is (641) 521-3080.

Stock market rises on merger news

NEW YORK (AP) — A flurry of corporate deals and a positive outlook for the technology industry gave the stock market a lift Friday. Intel jumped after the company said sales of business computers have been stronger than expected, and raised its revenue forecast. Technology stocks rose on the news, which was also a positive sign for investors who are betting that higher investment from businesses will help drive the economy this year. Still, major indexes had their first weekly losses in a month. A combination of so-so economic news and concerns about the impact of higher oil prices weighed on stocks earlier in the week. “The economy is still on a decent trend, but it’s choppy and I think we can expect the same for the market,” said Jerry Braakman, chief investment officer at First American Trust. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index climbed 6.05 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,936.16. The index ended the week down 0.7 percent after closing at an all-time high of 1,951.27 on Monday. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 41.55 points, or 0.3 percent, to 16,775.74. The Nasdaq composite climbed 13.02 points, or 0.3 percent, to 4,310.65. Intel was one of the top gainers in the S&P 500 after the company raised its revenue forecast late Thursday and said it expects profit margins to increase. The stock jumped $1.91, or 6.8 percent, to $29.87. A spurt of merger news also lifted stocks. 355 M Pantone Reflex GamblingPantone equipment maker International Blue M Game Technology was the biggest gainer in the S&P 500. It jumped $1.51, or 10.5 percent, to $15.86 after Reuters reported that a number of companies considered bidding for it.

Daily News Wood unleashes one-hitter in Cardinal victory By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor

NEWTON — Six innings under his belt and no hits allowed. Newton junior Tyler Wood went back on the mound to face Grinnell’s Tigers in the seventh inning. Four pitches in, the nohitter hopes of Wood were dashed. Grinnell’s junior third baseman Denton York connected on a 1-2 pitch and smashed a double. “The win is the most important thing, but I am a little upset. I’m not going to lie,” Wood said after three ground balls later, he had a one-hit, complete game with the Cardinals winning 5-1. “I was pretty close. I was thinking about it but I wasn’t going to talk about it. I gave up that hit. I thought I had the pitch to get it done and he got ahold of it,” Wood added. Wood admitted he had a shaky start to the game. “The first inning I kind of struggled. I got the bases loaded and worked out of the game. Then in the second inning I came out strong and from then on,” Wood said. Aside from two errors — one in the first and one in the sixth, the Cardinal defense made the plays behind Wood. Wood notched nine strikeouts and issued two walks. “The W is the best part and get off the losing streak,” Wood said. “My fastball was working pretty well and I’d throw an off-speed to keep them off balance. This was the farthest I’ve gotten with a no-hit effort.” Newton, which had lost a couple close games of late, was

in another one with Grinnell in Little Hawkeye Conference play. The Cardinals took advantage of two Tiger errors to manufacture a run in the second inning. Mike McCormick reached on a one-out error and moved to second on a passed ball. An errant throw to third allowed Derek Wrage to reach safely, ending up at second base on the play. McCormick attempted to steal home and was tagged out. Jeff Stanton, who had two singles in the game, drove in the run on a base hit. Stanton’s second base hit came with one gone in the fifth. Bryce Tish used a sacrifice bunt to move Stanton to second base. Chandler Sturtz singled to center field and Stanton scored. Wood and the Cardinals worked around an error in the top of the sixth to retire the Tigers. Then they cashed in on a Tiger error in the bottom of the inning. “I was working well but it was good to get those insurance runs. Everybody was hitting the ball and getting on base,” Wood said. “Jordan (Travis) came through with the big hit. He was due. He has been hitting the ball hard all year.” Michael Barr hit a ball hard to second base and reached on an error to open the sixth for the Cardinals. He dashed to second on a passed ball and swiped third base. Evan Shimon drew a walk. Jordan Travis belted a tworun triple over the Grinnell center fielder’s head. “I was just looking for a pitch I could hit. He gave me

Kaymer closes out wire-to-wire US Open win PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) — Martin Kaymer returned to the elite in golf with a U.S. Open victory that ranks among the best. A forgotten star for two years while building a complete game, Kaymer turned the toughest test of golf into a runaway at Pinehurst No. 2 on Sunday to become only the seventh wire-to-wire winner in 114 years of the U.S. Open. Kaymer closed with a 1-under 69 — the only play-

er from the last eight groups to break par — for an eights h o t victory o v e r Kaymer Rickie Fo w l e r and Erik Compton, the twotime heart transplant recipient and the only player who

even remotely challenged the 29-year-old German. So dominant was Kaymer that no one got closer than four shots over the final 48 holes. Only a late bogey kept Kaymer from joining Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy as the only players to finish a U.S. Open in double digits under par. He made a 15-foot par putt on the 18th US OPEN See Page 2B

out of the next three hitters. A run scored but the Cardinals sealed with victory breaking a three-game losing skid. Newton co-head coaches Darin Tisdale and Pat Riley agreed it was a big conference win at the end of a long week. The Cardinals improved to 4-3 in Little Hawkeye play and 5-7 overall.

Newton has another long week starting tonight at Oskaloosa for a LHC doubleheader. The Cardinals have 12 games this week, concluding at home for the Cardinal Tournament Saturday at Woodland Park. Newton will play two junior varsity games in the morning and two varsity games in the afternoon.

Spurs capture the NBA title SAN ANTONIO (AP) — From their low moment in the NBA Finals, back to the top of the league. The San Antonio Spurs turned the rematch with the Miami Heat into no match at all. The Spurs finished off a dominant run to their fifth NBA championship Sunday night, ending the Heat’s two-year title reign with a 104-87 victory that wrapped up the series in five games. A year after their heart-

breaking seven-game defeat, their only loss in six finals appearances, the Spurs won four routs to deny Miami’s quest for a third straight championship. Kawhi Leonard, named the finals MVP, had 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Spurs. San Antonio added this title to the ones the Spurs won in 1999, 2003, NBA See Page 2B

Lynnville-Sully girls power their way to No. 2 in Class 1A

L-S boys go 1-1 in SICL play By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor

By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor SULLY — Friday the 13th didn’t faze Lynnville-Sully’s softball players nor did Saturday the 14th. The Hawks are on a 13-game win streak after rolling through last week. They gave up just two runs in five games since Wednesday while piling up 58 runs. On Saturday in their home tournament, the Hawks exploded for nine runs in the fourth inning against Des Moines Christian on their way to a 12-2 win. Des Moines Christian scored single runs in the third and fourth innings to make it 3-2. LynnvilleSully ended the day with an 11-0 win over Collins-Maxwell/Baxter in five innings. Lynnville-Sully dominated host Belle Plaine Friday night, winning the South Iowa Cedar League doubleheader, 14-0 and 11-0. They dispatched H-L-V of Victor, 10-0, on Wednesday in SICL play. Lynnville-Sully moved to No. 2 in Iowa Class 1A ranking at the end of the week. The Hawks are 17-1 overall — the lone loss was to Class 4A’s Ballard. They are 10-0 in conference play. Madison Rasmusson garnered all five pitching victories for the Hawks. She allowed 17 hits, — not over four a game —

walked four batters and racked up 25 strikeouts. Of the course of the five games, LynnvilleSully pounded out 38 singles, seven doubles and one home run. Leading the offensive onslaught was Kaisha Ehresman with nine base hits and a double and Rasmusson with eight singles and a double. Shelby Davis had a home run in the win over Des Moines Christian and had four singles and two doubles in the games. Becca Vos connected for four singles and two doubles and Jade Van Rees had three base hits and one single Lysandra James and Saylin Lukehart each hit three singles. Hitting a single each were Kristal Beyer, Brenna Lanser, Rachel VanWyk and Kristin VanderWilt. Lynnville-Sully goes to Iowa Valley tonight in league play and hosts Pella Christian Tuesday in a non-league contest.

US Open: Johnson hits hole-in-one Continued from Page 1B hole, dropping his putter as the ball fell into the center of the cup, just like so many other putts this week. “No one was catching Kaymer this week,” Compton said, who closed with a 72 to earn earned a trip to the Masters next April. “I was playing for second. I think we all were playing for second.” This U.S. Open really ended on Friday. Kaymer set the U.S. Open record with back-to-back rounds of 65 to set the pace at 10-under 130. He began Sunday with a five-shot lead, and after a 10-foot par save on the second hole, Kaymer belted a driver on the 313-yard third hole. The ball landed on the front of the green and rolled to the back, setting up a two-putt birdie. Kaymer finished at 9-under 271, the second-lowest score in U.S. Open history next to McIlroy’s 268 at Congressional in 2011. He won his second major — the other was the 2010 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in a three-man playoff — and this one wasn’t close. Kaymer has as many majors as Bernhard Langer, the two-time Masters champion and a mentor to Kaymer. Langer sent him text mes-

sages earlier in the week. Kaymer’s father was home in Germany, where he said Father’s Day was celebrated a few weeks ago. “I didn’t get anything for my father that day,” Kaymer said. “So maybe this works.” Among those who congratulated Kaymer on the 18th green was Sandra Gal, a German player on the LPGA Tour. The Women’s U.S. Open takes over Pinehurst No. 2 on Monday. It was another frustrating day for Phil Mickelson, who didn’t come close to completing his career Grand Slam. The six-time Open runner-up failed to break par all week, finishing with a 72 that left him at 7-over 287. The world’s top-ranked player, Adam Scott, turned in a 69 to wind up at 282. Iowa native Zach Johnson had the shot of the day, acing the 172yard ninth hole. Johnson’s 7-iron landed about 20 feet left of the flag, bounced twice, and curled down the slope into the cup. The player flung his club in the air while the gallery roared, then took off on a hand-slapping celebration along both sides of the ropes. After retrieving his ball from the hole, he tossed it into the crowd.

ney before losing to Eddyville-Blakesburg, 11-1 in six innings, and Mt. Pleasant, 3-2, at the one-day tournament. PCM tied Mt. Pleasant at 2-all in the bottom of the sixth inning before allowing the go-ahead run to Mt. Pleasant in the seventh. Jayci Vos batted .500 (5-for-10) in the three games and MaKenna Van Veen went 3-for-7 on the day. The Mustangs also lost at Saydel, 4-3, on June 13. PCM held a 3-1 lead until the Eagles scored one run in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings, resulting in PCM’s second loss of the year. CMB swept at Lynnville-Sully tournament SULLY — Collins-Maxwell/Baxter lost two games to host LynnvilleSully and Melcher-Dallas on June 14. CMB was shutout for the third time this season in a 11-0 loss to Lynnville-Sully. Raider pitcher Mackenzie Schmitz was tagged for eights hits and five earned runs in the loss. She also walked seven batters. Schmitz, Payge Jurgens, Taylor Ross and Megan Ritter each had one hit against the Hawks. CMB also dropped a back-andforth game to Melcher-Dallas, 10-6. Heather Jessen was the pitcher of record, giving up 13 hits and walking three. Avery Hlavacek and Abbie Haupert both hit two doubles in the loss for the Raiders. Ross and Ritter each added a pair of singles.

SULLY — Lynnville-Sully’s baseball team won at home Wednesday night in a close game then lost on the road Friday in another contest that went to the final inning. Being the home team was important in the two one-run games play by the Hawks in South Iowa Cedar League play. H-L-V of Victor tied Wednesday’s game up with two runs in the third inning. Lynnville-Sully responded with a run in its half of the inning, regaining the lead, 3-2. The Hawks maintained their advantage for the next 3 1/2 innings. Lucas Smith threw a complete game for the win. Smith allowed five hits walked five and struck out three. Zach Kaldenberg cranked out two singles for the Hawks. T.J. Cunningham tripled and Daniel Zimmerman singled. At Belle Plaine Friday, the Hawks rallied from a 2-0 first-inning deficit to lead 5-3 by the end of the sixth inning. Belle Plaine scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh to win 6-5. Jake Brand took the pitching loss for LynnvilleSully, going the whole way. He gave up 10 hits, walked three and struck out 10. Zach Maasdam and Payton Scandridge each delivered two singles for the Hawks. Kaldenberg doubled. Sage Ehresman and Zimmerman each had a single. Lynnville-Sully is 6-4 overall and 4-4 in SICL play. The Hawks travel to Iowa Valley tonight and host Montezuma on Wednesday.

NBA: Spurs win fifth championship Continued from Page 1B ‘05 and ‘07. They nearly had another last year, but couldn’t hold off the Heat and lost in seven games. San Antonio rebounded from an early 16-point deficit by outscoring the Heat 37-13 from the start of the second quarter to midway in the third. The celebration the Heat canceled last season was on by the early second half Sunday, when the Spurs had finished digging their way out of an early 16-point hole and opened another huge lead.

LeBron James had 31 points and 10 rebounds for the Heat, who lost their spot atop the NBA to the team that had it so long. The Spurs won four titles in nine years, but hadn’t been back on top since 2007, making Foreigner’s “Feels Like the First Time” and appropriate song choice after the final buzzer. Tim Duncan and coach Gregg Popovich have been here for all of them, and it was the fourth for Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, who with Duncan are once again the reigning the Big Three in the NBA.

Kings capture Stanley Cup LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Kings ended the longest postseason in franchise history with the longest game they had ever played. Thanks to Alec Martinez and one beautiful rebound goal, they finished as champions again. Martinez scored 14:43 into the second overtime, and the Kings won the Stanley Cup for the second time in three years with a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers in Game 5. Marian Gaborik scored a tying

power-play goal with 12:04 left in regulation for the resilient Kings, who rallied from yet another deficit before finishing off the Rangers in the longest game in franchise history and the third overtime game at Staples Center in this series. Jonathan Quick made 28 saves and Conn Smythe Trophy winner Justin Williams scored an early goal as Los Angeles added a second title to its 2012 championship, the first in the franchise’s 47-year history.

Newsflash from the openminded Aquarius moon: When you have but one objective, the rest of your experience will bend to it. This produces a narrow view of the world that may serve your objective quite well. In this case, you had better be quite sure that the objective is worthy of the energy and perspective it demands.

that the latter may be more of an adventure in hanging up on a telemarketer.)

be glad you did. You’ll be better for learning from the experiences of others.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are doing so much on your own these days that socializing could seem like a chore. Increase your exposure to people. Otherwise, how are you going to keep up your skills?

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 16). You’ll be accused of being a workaholic next month, but they don’t understand that your business is about more than money: It’s a way to get more out of life! Get clear on your goals for 2014 because you’ll meet them by the year’s end with a little help. Loved ones offer the support that is easiest for them to give — that is, unless you ask for specific help. Capricorn and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 25, 44, 15 and 32.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Small, lighthearted revelations are what bond you with others — so do share. As far as anything deeper, write it out first. Become clear in your own thinking, and this will lead to a better connection.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Events that are outside of your control will change the rhythm of your day. Don’t be afraid of this. Assume that the new rhythm will be fine, too, if not more beneficial than if you had been able to rule absolutely.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There’s adventure ripe for the taking if you’re willing to travel to a new address or answer an unidentified call. (Note

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is natural and yet unwise to think that others see the world as you do. Your thought process is as unique as theirs. It is only by assuming that you don’t know that you can come to know. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Keeping the focus on another can be challenging when there’s so much you have to share on a subject. But exercise a little restraint, and you’ll

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Experience and mistakes — they are the only way to learn. There is no magic solution, and the one who says there is most likely wants your money. Some degree of skepticism will be wise. Investigate before you buy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The reason the action seems to be thwarted is because someone is sitting on the fence waiting to be pushed one way or the other. You’re just the person to nudge things in a positive direction. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you’re not going to bring the superstar energy to the task at hand (and

you’re probably still debating whether you’re up to it), the next best thing to bring is kindness. Being nice counts for a lot today. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Feelings, not facts, are at the heart of the matter. When people tell you how they feel, it’s valuable information. Rephrase it back to them in as neutral of a way as possible, and you’ll bond in understanding. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your loved ones will be the ones most likely to unintentionally offend you, and that’s precisely why you need to tell them when they do things that bother you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Talent is necessary, but work is more necessary. The one who puts in the most work will win regardless of talent level. Therefore, it is ambition, not talent, that will take you to the top.
