U2 pays great care to the message behind its music, and the band’s abundant charity work shows it cherishes the heart, mind, body and soul. There’s little doubt U2 has given heaps of time and funding to charity organizations. The musicians continually work with (PRODUCT)RED to invest in HIV/AIDS programs around the world. They’ve rocked benefit concerts such as 2005’s Live 8, supporting a Global Call for Action Against Poverty. And that’s only a snapshot. At one point, Bono — whose activism includes ongoing efforts for relief in Africa — even worried his pledge to campaign against poverty would push him out of the band. “They (his bandmates) are hugely supportive spiritually and financially of the work I do, but they are in a rock ‘n‘ roll band, and the first job of a rock ‘n‘ roll band is not to be dull,” Bono told BBC radio. “So we have to be very careful about just letting me go too far.” When U2’s 360° Tour rolls into Spartan Stadium on Sunday, there’s a chance Bono will take a break from singing “One” and “With or Without You”

to educate the audience about global poverty. “I thought we would wear our audience out, but it hasn’t happened,” Bono told BBC. “People are smart out there. They know what you are doing. They know the compromises you are making. They get it.” Here’s snapshot of U2’s current charity involvement: » (PRODUCT)RED: Helping brands donate aid to the Global Fund to invest in HIV/AIDS programs; » ONE: Fight against Extreme Poverty & Global Disease; » Amnesty International: Protecting human rights worldwide; » Greenpeace: Uses peaceful direct action to expose global warming, deforestation, overfishing, commercial whaling and anti-nuclear issues; » The Chernobyl Children’s Project International: Dedicated to restoring hope, alleviate suffering and protect current and future generations in the Chernobyl regions; For information on these and other charities the band supports, visit

U.S. taps into oil reserves to cut prices U.S. selling off 30M barrels amid turmoil The Associated Press


of a new surge in gas prices, the Obama administration said Thursday it is selling off 30 million barrels of oil from the country’s emergency reserves as part of a broader international response to lost oil supplies caused by turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, particularly Libya. The release from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve will be the largest ever, amounting to half of a 60 million-barrel international infusion of oil planned for the world market over the next month. Even so, the 30 million barrels to be sold by the United States represents less than two days’ worth of domestic oil consumption and about three days of oil imports. White House officials would not predict how the release will affect prices at the pump, although the move is intended to increase U.S. supplies during

the peak summer driving season. “We are taking this action in response to the ongoing loss of crude oil due to supply disruptions in Libya and other countries and their impact on the global economic recovery,” Energy Secretary Steven Chu said. The move comes as retail gasoline prices dropped for the 20th consecutive day, down a penny from Wednesday, to $3.61 per gallon, according to Chu the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report. That’s about 21 cents lower than a month ago. The timing brought criticism from business groups and Republican lawmakers, who accused President Barack Obama of playing politics with the country’s oil reserves, which are intended to address emergencies. “The Strategic Petroleum Reserve is an emergency lifeline to protect our nation against critical shortages in our oil supply and shouldn’t be used as a See OIL, Page 2A






Michael Freund, Jordan Henika and Charles King III were each sentenced to 90 days in jail and two years of probation. They each would serve another 30 days in jail if they violate probation terms upon their release. They also each must complete 30 days of community service, pay $1,975 in fines and costs, and write letters of apology to the families of the three teens who died.

Some Libyan students at MSU get reprieve 24 get money to remain; 19 still are unfunded Jeff Karoub The Associated Press

DETROIT — About 2,000 Libyan students who attend U.S. colleges, including 24 at Michigan State University, are getting a one-year reprieve in financial support

after Libya resumed funding that was halted when the U.N. froze about $30 billion of that country’s assets, the organization that administers the funds said. The Canadian Bureau for International Education announced Wednesday that Libya transferred the money through its central bank to continue the LibyanNorth American Scholarship Program. The funding covers tuition and monthly living allowances through


May 2012 for the students and their dependents. The Ottawa-based nongovernmental organization sent a letter to students last month warning that it was running out of money. In March, the U.N. froze Libyan assets in an attempt to keep them from the country’s leader Moammar Gadhafi. Basel Alashi, CBIE’s vice president of international partnerships, said Thursday his organization had to ob-

program for future diplomats at MSU. The money for their program flowed through different channels. For the past two months those students and their families have been living for free in MSU housing, but they have to be out at the end of the month. Mohamed Gibril said they have nowhere else to go, no landlord that will accept them without proof of stable income, no money to pay rent for more than a couple of months. Some of his colleagueshaveconsideredbuying tents and trying to camp. After the fighting started, Gibril and most of the others from the diplomatic training program who remain at MSU took part in public protests against Gadhafi’s government. Gibril said they have been denounced as traitors on Libyan national television. Many are applying for asylum with the help of volunteer attorneys. It’s possible that they could get work

permits. All of that takes time. “We are running out of options,” he said. MSU has already extended their academic program twice since the Libyan government cut its funding, allowing the students to remain legally in the U.S. for an additional two months. The university provided health insurance and food aid and is now offering them tickets back to Libya or to a safe neighboring country, said university spokesman Kent Cassella. “We’re still looking at options,” he said. “We’re talking with our congressional delegations.” But Peter Briggs, director of the university’s Office for International Students and Scholars, said he’s not optimistic that those students will get a reprieve before their visas run out July 15 though he is grateful for community and university efforts on their behalf. “For us, it’s only half the battle,” Briggs said. “What are they going to do?” State Journal reporter Matthew Miller contributed to this report.

Poll: Bachmann, Pawlenty gain ground WASHINGTON — Republicans are starting to pay more attention to the candidates who hope to take on President Barack Obama next year, and so far that’s been a good thing for Michele Bachmann and Tim Pawlenty. Not for Newt Gingrich. Overall, a new Associated Press-GfK poll shows, Republicans are giving the field of challengers a so-so assessment as interest in the race increases. And, with growing doubts among Americans that Obama deserves re-election, Democratic interest in the GOP field is significant, too. Bachmann, a three-term congresswoman supported by many tea party members, enjoyed a big boost in her favorability rating among Republicans after she turned in a smooth debate performance this month and joined the presidential race. Former Minnesota Gov. Pawlenty also made progress with Republicans, particularly

among tea party supporters. GOP field leader Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, held steady in the eyes of Republicans — but gained no ground — with the formal launch of his campaign. Former House Speaker Gingrich’s rating among Republicans plunged in one month from 61 percent to 43 percent as his campaign was plagued by massive staff defections, abysmal fundraising and reports that he and his wife had racked up huge bills at luxury jeweler Tiffany’s. The poll was conducted June 16-20 by GfK Roper Public Affairs and Corporate Communications. It involved landline and cellphone interviews with 1,001 adults nationwide and had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points. The survey included 429 Republicans, and that subset had a larger, 6.2 percentage point margin of error. — Associated Press

Community College. In fact, the mothers of two of the three students who died, Taylyr Cochran, 18, and Anthony Harris, 17, said they didn’t want them to serve jail time. The father of 17-yearold Holly Bossenbery asked for a jail sentence. “Even though I see that some of the families have tried to move beyond this,” Allen said, “punishment is part of the mix, as well as trying to make sure we deter other people going forward.” Attorneys for both Freund and Henika said the sentences Allen imposed, which included two years of probation and 30 days of community service, were too harsh. King’s attorney left the courthouse and could not be reached for comment. “To foist this kind of punishment on young people — really, because of the unfortunate result of that party — I think was just fundamentally unfair,” said Henika’s attorney, George

“To place these young men in custody would only exacerbate that suffering,” Harris she said. Dalia Luera-Harris, Anthony Harris Jr.’s mother, said: “I don’t see how it would help any of us or anyone else in the community for these three young men to be pulled out of school and put behind bars.” The party, at Freund, Henika and King’s Meridian Township apartment, was advertised through Facebook and word of mouth. People under 21 years old were among those invited. Johnson, 17, pleaded guilty to one count of driving while intoxicated causing the deaths of three people. He was sentenced earlier this month to four to 15 years in prison.

Study: Fight obesity in kids 5 and under Better sleep, less screen time among strategies outlined By Nanci Hellmich USA TODAY

Across the nation

Cantor, Kyl pull out of budget talks

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor pulled out of talks with Vice President Biden on a deficit-reduction debt-ceiling deal, saying an impasse had been reached over Democratic demands for tax increases to be paired with spending cuts wanted by the GOP. The Virginia Republican said in a statement that the Republican-dominated House simply won’t support tax increases, and that he wouldn’t participate in the budget meeting scheduled for Thursday. Cantor said that it’s time for President Obama to weigh in directly on the budget because Democrats insist on negotiating some tax increases. Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, who is representing Senate Republicans in the talks, also dropped out.

Take the television set out of kids’ bedrooms. Teach them to eat only when they’re hungry. Don’t restrict playtime as a punishment. These are among the recommendations in a new report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM), one of the first comprehensive studies analyzing what should be done to help prevent obesity in kids 5 and under. In recent years, experts have emphasized fighting weight problems in school-age kids, but

the obesity epidemic has not spared even our youngest children, says Leann Birch, chairwoman of the IOM committee that prepared the report. She is director of the Center for Childhood Obesity Research at Pennsylvania State University. About one in five kids are overweight or obese before they go to kindergarten, with higher rates among low-income children and African-American and Hispanic children, the report notes. Government data show a third of school-age children are overweight or obese. Many children don’t grow out of their baby fat, and that extra weight increases their risk of obesity and other chronic diseases such as heart disease later in life, Birch says. The first years of life are a critical time to begin

obesity prevention, Birch says. The report is aimed at child care regulatory agencies, child care providers and early-childhood educators, but much of the advice could apply to parents, too. Among recommendations: uIncrease physical activity in young children. Kids should have the chance to be physically active throughout the day. Adults should avoid using restriction of play as a disciplinary measure, and kids should have opportunities for daily outdoor time for physical activity whenever possible. uDecrease sedentary time for young children. Activities for toddlers and preschoolers should limit sitting or standing time to no more than 30 minutes at a time.

uEncourage age-appropriate sleep durations. There is a lot of data that establish a connection between shorter sleep duration and higher weight status, Birch says. Adults should create environments that ensure restful sleep for children, such as allowing no screen media in rooms where kids sleep. Currently, about 40% of children ages 4 to 6 have TVs in their rooms. uLimit screen time and exposure to food and beverage marketing. Child care providers should limit television viewing and use of computers, mobile devices and other digital technologies to less than two hours a day for children ages 2 to 5. uMonitor and track weight and length or height on growth charts from birth to age 5 at every well-child visit.

Mobster seen as a good neighbor Elusive Bulger and his girlfriend were in hiding as ‘Charlie and Carol’ By William Welch, Kevin Johnson and Melanie Eversley USA TODAY

An anxious return

Going home: Jerry and Mary Murr take a boat to their home Thursday in Corning, Mo. Floodwater from the Missouri River covered the town earlier this week.

Arizona death may have E. coli link The death of an Arizona man who recently visited Germany may be linked to the foodpoisoning outbreak in Europe, health officials said Thursday. The man, who died in mid-June, developed a serious E. coli complication that can lead to kidney failure. But officials don’t know yet if he was sickened by the same bacteria strain that has hit thousands in Europe, mostly in Germany. If confirmed, it would be the first U.S. death tied to the outbreak, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There have been 42 deaths in Germany.

Brass sees risk in Afghan withdrawal The nation’s top military brass made clear Thursday that President Obama rejected their advice in choosing a quicker path to winding down the war in Afghanistan. Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the House Armed Services Committee that he supports the Obama plan, although he had recommended a less aggressive drawdown schedule. Obama’s approach adds risk to the military mission, Mullen said. But he added, “It’s manageable risk.” Army Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, said later that he, too, had recommended a more gradual withdrawal — as had Marine Gen. James Mattis, who oversees all U.S. military operations in the greater Mideast. Around the world

Supporters rally after Gadhafi speech

Moammar Gadhafi’s supporters rallied Thursday in Tripoli after the Libyan leader lashed out at NATO over civilian casualties, calling the alliance “murderers” following an airstrike on the home of a close associate. A few hundred supporters gathered in the capital’s Green Square hours after the latenight speech, vowing to defend the Libyan leader against rebels seeking to oust him.

Doctor guilty in patient rapes GEORGETOWN, Del. — A Delaware pediatrician was found guilty Thursday of raping or assaulting more than 85 young children under his care. Superior Court Judge William C. Carpenter Jr. found Dr. Earl B. Bradley, 58, guilty on all 24 counts of first-degree rape, second-degree assault and sexual exploitation of a child. The guilty finding was widely anticipated. The former pediatrician will receive life in prison, a mandatory sentence, when Carpenter brings him back into court on Aug. 26. In all, Bradley assaulted more than 102 girls and at least one boy, Bradley’s indictment said, but prosecutors reduced the number of victims to 86 for the trial. Detectives and prosecutors were able to identify 70 of the victims shown in the videos the doctor took of the assaults.

Tycoon’s estate finally settled

WASHINGTON — The now 4-year-old daughter of the late former Playboy playmate Anna Nicole Smith is not entitled to a share of the $1.6 billion estate of Smith’s elderly Texas husband, the Supreme Court ruled, apparently ending a long legal struggle and leaving the heirs of oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall with his money. Eric Brunstad, a lawyer for the Marshall family, said the decision “finally puts to rest years and years of litigation.”

— From wire reports

LOS ANGELES — At one point in the FBI’s 16-year pursuit of James “Whitey” Bulger, there were sightings of the accused murderer on two continents. Reports of the whereabouts of Bulger and his longtime girlfriend, Catherine Greig, were so frequent and often so wrong that Tom Fuentes, a former FBI assistant director, says Bulger assumed the ubiquitous, mythical existence of Elvis. “He was everywhere,” Fuentes says. In the end, Bulger, the iconic Boston crime figure who was the inspiration for the Academy Award-winning film The Departed, was found with Greig not in a far-away locale but in the plain sight of Southern California’s thick urban sprawl, living in a Santa Monica apartment as Charles and Carol Gasko. Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said AP it is believed the couple Greig: As seen in had been living there her FBI photo. for years. Their capture late Wednesday came without incident, just two days after the FBI launched a publicity campaign focused on Greig. A tip from that series of public service announcements, which aired in 14 cities, led investigators to the Princess Eugenia Apartments, ending one of the most intense manhunts in law enforcement history, Boston FBI chief Richard DesLauriers said Thursday. DesLauriers said federal agents used an undisclosed “ruse” to entice Bulger to leave his apartment. Once outside, Bulger was positively identified and taken into custody. Greig was inside, where agents recovered tens of thousands of dollars and a cache of weapons. “Although there are those who doubted our resolve at times over the years,” DesLauriers said Thursday, “it has never wavered.” Bulger, now 81 and charged in 19 murders, and Greig, 60, charged with harboring a fugi-

street to silence him from talking about the Oklahoma killing. Prosecutors said Bulger fled in 1995 after being warned by John Connolly Jr., a Boston FBI agent who had used Bulger as an informant. Connolly was convicted of racketeering for shielding Bulger and Flemmi. In Santa Monica, Bulger and Greig had shed not only their names but also any apparent link to a criminal past. Montanna Bischoff, 25, a TV producer who lives in the building, knew the friendly couple as “Carol and Charlie.” “They were actually one of the sweetest couples I ever met,” Bischoff said. “They were just a very sweet older couple. I said to my friend, ‘They’re so sweet, they could be the building grandparents.’” Bischoff often saw Bulger and Greig walking along the Third Street Promenade. Once, when the couple learned that Bischoff’s former roommate was going out to buy cold medication, they stopped by later with cough drops and other supplies. She said she saw The Departed and couldn’t connect the criminal in that movie with her neighbors. “To find out he’s been on the Most Wanted List for murder and is a mobster is almost unreal, actually,” she said. The couple seemed to be living a modest but comfortable lifestyle, Bischoff said. “They seemed pretty normal — no flashy clothes or jewelry.” Mike Cashin, 25, of Marina del Rey, who visits his girlfriend at the apartment building, said he often saw Bulger feeding a stray cat. “It looks like they were there for quite some time, keeping a low profile,” Davis said. “It’s an easy place to get lost in.’’

tive, appeared in federal court here Thursday afternoon dressed in white jumpsuits. Looking relaxed, even jovial, Bulger joined a discussion of the pending charges against him, at one point saying to the judge: “I know them all pretty much. Thank you.” U.S. Magistrate Judge John McDermott denied bond for both defendants and ordered that they be returned to Boston, where Bulger is accused of operating a criminal enterprise known as the Winter Hill Gang. In 2000, then-U.S. Attorney Donald Stern said Bulger and Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi were “responsible for a reign of intimidation and murder that spanned 25 years.” The government has linked Bulger to a series of ruthless killings. One victim was shot between the eyes in a parking lot at his Oklahoma country club. Johnson reported from Washington, Eversley Another was gunned down on a South Boston from McLean, Va.

Treatment guidelines issued for combat dogs More canines are injured in battle as roles expand in wars By Gregg Zoroya USA TODAY Panting is normal. That advice is among several new guidelines issued to battlefield doctors called on to treat dogs injured in the line of duty in Afghanistan. “Canines differ in anatomy and physiology,” the guidelines say. “Knowledge of key differences will assist the physician in resuscitating and stabilizing . . . prior to transport to veterinary care.” About 650 dogs — mostly German shepherds, Labrador retrievers and Malinois — are in Afghanistan to sniff out explosive booby traps for U.S. troops on patrol. A dog was with the SEAL team that killed Osama bin Laden last month. Since May 2010, 14 dogs have been killed in combat, six were wounded, and three are missing, says Army Maj. T.G. Taylor, spokes-

There are seven teams of military veterinarians in Afghanistan and two veterinary hospitals. Dogs wounded by roadside bombs or gunshots may first arrive by helicopter at field hospitals along with human casualties.

Hence the need to know about dog anatomies. Among the differences noted by the Army Institute of Surgical Research: Normal heart rates are 20 beats-per-minute faster than humans, and body temperatures are 2 to 3 degrees higher. Blood pressure is the same, and dogs can suffer a form of post-traumatic stress disorder. The guidelines, distributed in April, alert doctors about fine distinctions. Pulse-rate monitors people wear on a finger should be attached to a dog’s ear or tongue; electrodes for electrocardiograms can be placed on foot pads, where fur will not interfere with a reading. The guidelines also list those medications for humans that can be used on dogs. Most important: The handler should be bedside. “Handlers are very attached to the dogs, and the dogs are very responsive to their handlers,” says Col. Kelly Mann, an Army veterinarian involved in the guidelines. “If at all possible, the handler and the dog should stay together.”

Bombings kill U.S. contractor, 23 Iraqis in Baghdad MCT News Service

BAGHDAD — Bombs killed an American finance expert and at least 23 Iraqis Thursday in one of the worst sieges of violence the Iraqi capital has seen in months. Dr. Stephen Everhart, an international development and finance expert under contract to the U.S. Agency for International Development, was killed when a roadside bomb hit the convoy in which he was traveling, U.S. and Iraqi officials said. Three people were wound-

ed, including at least one American, they said. The 23 Iraqis died in a series of explosions that struck Shiite neighborhoods in south Baghdad, police said. At least 120 people were wounded in those attacks. Police put the toll at 21 dead and 107 wounded when three bombs planted inside black plastic bags detonated inside a market packed with shoppers in the al Shurta neighborhood. A bomb in a parked car detonated in the Abu Disheer neighborhood in south Baghdad, killing two people and in-

juring 10 others, and a roadside bomb attack on an Iraqi army patrol in the Sunni neighborhood of Jamiaa wounded three troops, Iraqi police said. Everhart was visiting a branch of the Mustansiriyah University, where he was to introduce a new business curriculum when the roadside bomb exploded. It wasn’t clear if the bombers knew who was riding in the convoy. The assaults come amid growing questions about the effectiveness of the Iraqi Interior Ministry, which still lacks a minister to head it, due to the

long-running political impasse following the March 2010 elections. Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki, who’s acting minister of defense and the interior, has said that political leaders have stacked the ministry with their followers, and it was riddled with collusion and infiltration. Adding to the uncertainties for the country’s security, the major political blocs have been unable to agree on whether to ask U.S. forces to stay beyond the Dec. 31 withdrawal date agreed to under President George W. Bush.

Lexus takes top spot in quality survey Industry sees improvement from last year Greg Gardner Detroit Free Press

Toyota Motor Corp. recovered and Ford Motor Co. stumbled in J.D. Power and Associates’ closely watch 2011 initial quality study. The Westlake Village, Calif.-based researcher found consumers increasingly critical of complex technology designed to in-

crease smart phone use in vehicles. Despite the growing amount of technology in cars, the industry improved overall, to an average of 107 problems per 100 vehicles. That translates into about one problem per vehicle. The industry averaged 109 problems per 100 vehicles in 2010 and 108 in 2009. The study evaluated 32 brands based on survey responses from more than 73,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2011 modelyear vehicles after 90 days of ownership. Toyota’s Lexus brand

secured the No. 1 spot in the 2011 annual study, with 73 problems reported for every 100 vehicles, while the carmaker’s namesake brand finished No. 7. Toyota’s fellow Japanese rival, Honda Motor Co. Ltd., and its Acura luxury brand were No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. General Motors Co.’s Cadillac and GMC nameplates were the only two domestic brands to finish above the industry average. Dearborn-based Ford, the top-performing non-luxury brand last year with 93 problems per 100 vehicles,

tumbled to No. 23 with 116 problems per 100 vehicles. In a notable finding, the initial quality of 2011 models that did not undergo major redesigns, improved to a best-ever 103 problems per vehicle. But the number of problems reported among all-new or significantly redesigned models jumped 10 percent from last year (to 122 problems per hundred from 111 last year). Meanwhile, three assembly plants tied for Power’s Platinum quality award for making vehicles that averaged only 24 problems

per 100: Toyota’s Cambridge South plant in Ontario that produces the Lexus RX, Toyota’s Kyushu, Japan, plant that makes the Lexus ES, IS and RX, and Honda’s Greensburg, Ind., factory that makes the Civic. No plants operated by Detroit-area automakers received a top award for initial quality. Last year, GM’s Lansing Grand River plant was ranked third among North and South American plants, while the Cadillac CTS made there was rated the thirdbest entry-level premium car.


The top scorers in four of the biggest segments of the U.S. auto market in J.D. Power and Associates’ annual quality rankings: » Compact: Honda Civic and Honda Insight hybrid (tie), Toyota Prius hybrid » Midsize: Honda Accord, Subaru Legacy, Toyota Camry » Compact Crossover SUVs: Honda Element, Honda CR-V, Toyota FJ Cruiser » Full-size Pickup Trucks: Ford F-150, Toyota Tundra, Chevrolet Avalanche

Owosso’s Memorial eyeing affiliation

Sparrow Health System is preparing a proposal for an affiliate hospital partnership with Memorial Healthcare in Owosso. Lansing-based Sparrow was among five area health systems that received requests for proposals from Memorial. Memorial spokeswoman Irma King said the hospital is not looking for a “buyout,” but an affiliation that would give it access to more services, purchasing power and capital. Sparrow would not provide further details on its proposal. Memorial also sent requests to St. John Providence Health System, Covenant HealthCare, Pennant Health Alliance and McLaren Health Care Corp., which owns Ingham Regional Medical Center in Lansing.

Spartan Motors cuts employees CHARLOTTE —

Spartan Motors Inc. has laid off some workers because of a drop in defense and emergency response business. The specialty vehicle and custom chassis maker did not release the number of cuts, though spokesman Russell Chick said the recent cuts were not “seismic changes.” Spartan had about 670 workers in Charlotte as of April. Spartan has cut contract and temporary workers in the past, significantly reducing its workforce over the past few years.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — A published report


Job seekers stand in line this month at a job fair in Southfield. Applications for unemployment benefits rose to a seasonally adjusted 429,000 last week, the Labor Department said Thursday.

Layoffs and housing data point to chronic problems The Associated Press

Lansing-area jobless rate up slightly

WASHINGTON — Sour reports Thursday on the number of people who sought unemployment benefits and buyers of new homes illustrate what Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke acknowledged Wednesday. Many factors weighing on the economy are proving to be more chronic than first imagined. Applications for unemployment benefits rose to a seasonally adjusted 429,000 last week, the Labor Department said Thursday. It was the biggest jump in a month and marked the 11th straight week that applications have been above 400,000. Elevated unemployment benefit claims signal a worsening job market. New home sales fell in May to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 319,000, the Commerce Department said. That’s far below the 700,000 homes per year that economists say must be sold to sustain a healthy housing

The Lansing area’s jobless rate ticked up slightly in May as more people sought seasonal work. The jobless rate for Ingham, Clinton and Eaton counties was at 7.9 percent last month, the Department of Technology, Management and Budget reported Thursday. That was up from 7.6 percent in April but down from 9.9 percent in May 2010. Michigan’s jobless rate was 10.3 percent in May, while the national rate was 9.1 percent. State and national rates are adjusted for seasonal factors, while the local unemployment rate is not. Local unemployment rose because more people started looking for summer work, said

Mark Reffitt, regional economic analyst with the state. About 800 jobs were added in the construction sector over the month, while the manufacturing sector added about 200 jobs. Those gains were stronger than the area typically experiences in May, Reffitt said. Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties continued to come in among the state’s lowest jobless rates. Clinton County ranked second with a jobless rate of 6.7 percent, followed by Eaton County in fourth with 7.2 percent. Ingham County was 10th with a 8.5 percent rate.

2.7 percent and 2.9 percent this year, down from its range of 3.1 percent to 3.3 percent in April. The Fed also raised its unemployment rate estimate slightly, saying it would not fall below 8.6 percent this year. In its policy statement, the Fed blamed the worsening outlook in part on temporary factors. High gas prices have forced consumers to spend less on discretionary items, such as appliances and vacations, which help boost growth. And supply disruptions from Japan’s natural disasters have slowed manufacturing growth. The Fed said those problems should abate by the fall, and growth would pick up. But when pressed by reporters, Bernanke acknowledged that some of the troubles are stronger and more persistent. He singled out the weaknesses in the financial sector and the housing market. And he said those problems could linger for some time.

says federal regulators are preparing to issue subpoenas to Google Inc. and other companies. It comes as authorities gather information for a broad antitrust probe into the Internet search leader’s business practices. The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday the FederalTradeCommission willissuesubpoenas“within days,” which would signal that it has opened a formal investigation. The FTC is looking into whether Google abuses its dominance of Internet search to extend its influence into other lucrative online markets, such as mapping, comparison shopping and travel. Rivals complain that Google Inc., which handles two out of every three Internet searches in the U.S., manipulates its results to steer users to its own sites and services and bury links to competitors. Google and the FTC refused comment. The European Commission and the Texas attorney general have already opened investigations into whether Google uses its enormous clout as a major gateway to the Internet to stifle competition online. The Senate Judiciary Committee’s antitrust subcommittee, too, is examining whether Google gives its own services favorable treatment in search results and is seeking to have either Google Chairman Eric Schmidt or Chief Executive Larry Page testify before the panel. Google’s rivals welcomed the news of an FTC probe, for which the agency has been laying the groundwork for months.

Time to talk about retiree health care No need to rush, but state A must begin to address issue

legislative proposal to drastically alter health care benefits for future retirees from the state work force is making its way through hearings at the Capitol. The details may be worth debating, but it’s a concept that deserves serious discussion and consideration. First, Michigan cannot afford to keep paying for health coverage for workingage retirees — those who opt to retire before age 65. It’s not fair to taxpayers, many of whom are private sector workers who have lost such benefits, if they ever had them in the first place. Second, the unsustainable costs of retiree care make a thoughtful study of changes necessary. This plan could be a starting place. As outlined, it would allow workers hired before 1997 to keep full health benefits in retirement. Those hired after 1997 would get a lump sum payment to a “health reimbursement account” at retirement. The amounts would vary based on

OUR POINT IS... It’s time for Michigan to begin the difficult discussion about cutting costs of state retiree health care.

years of service. In current dollars, they would range from $2,000 for those with four or fewer years and up to $66,642 for those with 13 years of service. The package also asks employees to contribute toward their pension costs. Those hired before 1997 are covered by a traditional defined benefit plan, which offers set monthly payments upon retirement. They would have to pay 4 percent of their salary to keep accruing those benefits. Those workers could opt out of the payments by switching into the 401(k) retirement system offered to employees

hired after 1997. Their existing traditional pensions would be frozen and paid to them at retirement. It’s a complex plan, but one that would reduce the state’s unfunded liability for retiree health care from $14.7 billion to $9.1 billion — a $5.6 billion savings that is certainly worth consideration. A legitimate criticism of the concept is timing. The bills as written would give 20,000 state workers hired before 1997 from July 1 to Aug. 31 to make their decisions about which plan to select. That would be an extraordinarily fast turnaround. State workers already face likely concessions on salaries and their current health benefits. Questions about retirement benefits are not as urgent; there is no need for this discussion to be rushed. But be clear, there is a need for a thoughtful and thorough discussion. This is not an issue that will fade. Reforms are needed. Let the discussion begin.

Michigan needs statewide ban to prohibit smoking in public It is time the rest of Michigan followed University of Michigan’s example. We should ban public smoking statewide. We need to do something to make Michigan more exciting. We should start shifting our slogan of “Pure Michigan” to “Healthy Michigan” to attract the 80 percent of adults who do not smoke. I can’t put into words how selfish and disrespectful some smokers seem to be. Just recently, my wife and kids and I were enjoying lunch outside a downtown Lansing restaurant only to have our experience ruined by some inconsiderate smoker puffing away upwind from our table. Is it that person’s “right” to ruin our lunch? I am not advocating prohibition. People who choose to smoke can do so on their own property in a way that affects no one else. However, the majority who do not smoke should be free of these annoying clouds of toxic substances in every shared space.

We have lost sight of what’s really important in our lives Thought I’d turn on the Internet to get today’s important news: President Barack Obama’s new Twitter account, Crystal Harris and Hugh Hefner, “Green Lantern” is the No. 1 movie, J. Lo’s wardrobe malfunction, Tone Loc arrested for domestic violence, adding cherries to your diet, keeping open cabinets looking neat, Bristol Palin’s loss of virginity, cost of a soccer mom, and finding cheap toilet paper. It’s good to know that people are laser focused on all the important things in their daily lives. Excuse me, but I just have to click into my Twitter account and see what the president tweets today. I feel so focused! George Hurrell Lansing

Our lawmakers are beholden to too many special interests

The report by Michigan Campaign Finance Network on election spending continues to point out the debts that our representatives owe to known and unknown special interests. It is little wonder that we are being asked by government to resolve the state and country’s hefty financial, environmental and infrastructure problems instead of those responsible.

Court should have supported class action The Supreme Court ruled Monday that female employees of Wal-Mart could not band together to sue over what they said was pervasive gender discrimination by the iconic retailer. The legal issues in the case were complicated, but the central question was a simple one and the court got it wrong. As a result of the decision, serious allegations against Wal-Mart dating back a decade won’t be tested in court, and similar lawsuits against other employers will never be undertaken at all. The overall decision was 9-0 in favor of Wal-Mart. But on the specific and most substantial issue of whether Wal-Mart’s female employees might seek to join together because of a common experience of discrimination, the vote was 5-4. Class-action suits of the kind WalMart employees wanted to bring provide significant advantages over individual lawsuits. Among other things, they allow an avenue of relief for far-flung employees who might not be able to afford to

Quoting a judge on the appeals court that considered the case, Scalia wrote that the potential members of the class “held a multitude of different jobs, at different levels of Wal-Mart’s hierarchy, for variable lengths of time, in 3,400 stores, bring lawsuits on their own. sprinkled across 50 states, with a kaleidoIn seeking to have a court certify scope of supervisors (male and female), 1.5 million present and former female Wal-Mart employees as a class, the plain- subject to a variety of regional policies that all differed. ...

Los Angeles Times, June 21 necessary under the law to create a class.

In the aftermath of the exposure and resignation of Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., from Congress, his colleagues, some journalists, ethicists and pundits are trying to sort out what it means. Has a new standard been created in Washington? How can Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., remain in office under an ethical cloud about money and Weiner be forced to resign because he had fantasy sex? It wasn’t even “real” sex, like Bill Clinton had. Clinton also lied about sex and was impeached for lying (but not for the sex). Some wonder whether the behavior of Clinton and some Republicans mirrors a CAL national moral decline? The Washington Post ran THOMAS a front-page story last week, the sub headline of which said, “Had congressman not lied, colleague says, ‘it could have ended differently.’” So it isn’t what used to be called moral turpitude that did Weiner in, but lying about it? If he had not been exposed, would he have been any less morally guilty? Who decides? A University of Maryland student friend of mine tells me one of her classes last semester discussed “the normalization of deviance.” In an age when what is normal is determined by culture and opinion polls, deviance has ceased to have meaning. That’s because there is now no nationally accepted standard by which it can be measured. If lying is now the unpardonable political sin, we may at last have found a way to limit congressional terms. If lying is sufficient reason to expel a member, then the halls of Congress may soon be vacant. All politicians lie at some level, even Jimmy Carter, who promised during the 1976 campaign and in the aftermath of Watergate, “I’ll never lie to you.” He did though. Google “Jimmy Carter lies” and read for yourself. According to the list, he’s still telling lies, 30 years after leaving office. George H.W. Bush promised, “Read my lips. No new taxes.” He caved into Congress, which raised taxes during his single term. Bush signed the legislation. In 1963, before cynicism replaced skepticism in the press, Pentagon spokesman Arthur Sylvester spoke about government’s “inherent right to lie.” Granted, it was in the context of “to save itself when facing a nuclear disaster...” but as we know from the Pentagon Papers, lies from government became commonplace during the Vietnam War. President Barack Obama’s lies about many things are catalogued on various websites and increasingly in newspapers. Some who led cheers for him in 2008 are now finding his lies difficult to ignore. Glenn Kessler, who writes the Fact Checker column for the Washington Post, recently awarded the president “three Pinocchios” (out of four) for his claim that “Chrysler has repaid every dime and more of what it owes American taxpayers for their support during my presidency.” Sure, Republicans lie, too, but if lying about something, rather than bad behavior, is the new standard in Washington, D.C., someone had better tell the politicians. Thomas Jefferson did in an Aug. 19, 1785 letter to Peter Carr: “... he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual ... This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good dispositions.”

ity than costly central air conditioners to save you money all summer long. “You see, with central air conditioners you are wasting a lot of money to cool areas of your home that you’re not even using.

With all of the money you save over central air, these high performance portable air conditioners pay for themselves in just a matter of weeks. After that, they just keep on putting cash in your pocket month after month. “We’re trying to make sure no one gets left out, but we only have 1,577 ArcticPro™ high performance air conditioners to release and when they’re gone, they’re gone so residents of the counties listed in today’s paper need to call right now.

But since Michigan residents are not paying the retail markup you better believe they’ll be telling the operators they want two,” said Berry. “So when the lines are busy keep trying.

Bill ends benefits for ex-lawmakers House OKs plan eliminating retiree health care insurance Tim Martin The Associated Press

Michigan lawmakers advanced another proposal Thursday to eliminate retiree health care insurance for future and most current members of the Legislature. The state House approved a measure by a 107-3 vote, sending the bill to the Senate. The legislation would limit the benefits to those who became qualified

participants in the system before Jan. 1, 2007, and have served at least six years as a lawmaker. The measure also would ban the benefits for future lawmakers and most of those currently serving in the Legislature. Only veteran lawmakers and already qualified former lawmakers would retain eligibility. Current law allows ex-lawmakers who served at least six years in the Legislature to get health coverage once they turn 55, most-

ly at taxpayer expense. The benefit has come under fire in recent years because many employees in both the public and private sectors have dealt with reductions in health care coverage while lawmakers have kept their coverage even in retirement. It cost about $5 million to provide health and dental benefits to 348 retired lawmakers and their dependents in the 2009-10 fiscal year. “This is about us leading by example, plain and simple,” said Republican Rep. Joel Johnson of Clare. “You can’t find a benefit like this outside of the Legislature and it is high time we eliminate it.” This is the first attempt by the

A man who broke into a downtown Lansing restaurant Wednesday night, stealing undisclosed items, was chased by the owner to the nearby bus station but was able to get away, police said. The man broke into Restaurant Mediteran, at 333 S. Washington Square, about 9:40 p.m., Lansing police said. The owner saw the intruder and chased him to the Capital Area Transportation Authority station about a block away but then lost him.

MDOT will close or combine 8 facilities

EAST LANSING — A move by the Michigan Department of Transportation that will lead to the closing or consolidation of eight facilities is part of his administration’s efforts to save money, Gov. Rick Snyder said Thursday. “We have to meet our budget goals. So we’re just working through that process,” the governor told reporters after speaking to small-business owners in East Lansing. The department plans to save $300,000 a year by eliminating eight facilities by Oct. 1. The agency has shrunk staffing by 15 percent since 2009 and has decided not to fill 60 supervisory positions. The department plans to close Transportation Service Centers in Cass City, Howard City, Grayling and Escanaba and assign their duties to the closest regional office. The Superior Region Office in Escanaba will remain open. Construction field offices in Tecumseh, Allen Park and Rockford will close, while the Macomb and Port Huron service centers will be combined.

That’s fueled skepticism about whether lawmakers are serious about eliminating the benefit. Some lawmakers say they would prefer a plan that eliminates the benefit for all current legislators. “This bill could and should be stronger,” said Rep. Dian Slavens, D-Canton Township. “But this is a good start.” Those voting against the bill were Democrats Doug Geiss, Richard LeBlanc and Jimmy Womack.


Crews work Wednesday to build the massive U2 360 Tour stage on the field at MSU’s Spartan Stadium.

New Spartan Stadium turf coming from Colorado E

AST LANSING — Come football season, the sacred turf at Spartan Stadium will be ... pure Colorado. In an email this week, Bill Drushel of Webberville Feed & Grain, though reluctant to dish any dirt on Michigan State University, pointed out what seemed to him like a travesty regarding Green and White soil. He wrote: “I understand that MSU has contracted out of state to supply and put down new turf after (Sunday’s) U2 concert. We have one of the best turf schools in the country and we go outside of the system to get the work done? What’s going on here? Something doesn’t add up to the average observer.” In a subsequent phone interview, Drushel said he knows some of the people in MSU’s celebrated turfgrass science program. “This has to be a slap in the face for them,” he added. MSU spokesman Kent Cassella confirmed this week that the replacement turf would be imported from the Rocky Mountain State, but that the MSU turf experts were all for it. He explained it this way: “ ... The key to success (in growing turf) is finding matching soil. Our turfgrass experts did soil analysis of growers across Michigan and across the country. None in Michigan matched the soil we have in Spartan Stadium, but a Colorado grower did.”


Workers install sod on the field at Spartan Stadium one square at a time in this 2002 file photo. After Sunday’s U2 concert, the field will be restored using soil from Colorado.



Wrong dirt

Cassella went on to say that Michigan has excellent turf growers, but none of them had the right dirt. “Because of the short time we have to reestablish the root system, soil match is vital to success,” Cassella wrote. “And, as you can imagine, failure is not an option.”

But they didn’t specify which year … Bill from Williamston wants to know if the rest stop on westbound Interstate 96, near Okemos, will ever open again. Check out my blog at johnschneiderblog.

Huh? Are we talking about a football field here, or a bone marrow transplant? The soil around MSU isn’t good enough for the football field? See SCHNEIDER, Page 3B

A man delivering the Lansing State Journal who police said was shot in the arm during an attempted carjacking was one of two victims of early Thursday morning shootings.

Two men wearing bandanas and hooded sweat shirts walked up to Wayne Houts’ two-door Saturn and attempted a carjacking, said Lansing police Lt. Noel Garcia. Houts, 40, resisted and was shot in the arm, Garcia said. He was able to drive away and flag down a police officer. He was treated at a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. About 2½ hours earlier, around 2:20 a.m., a Lansing police officer was responding to an unrelated larceny call when the officer saw a man crawling in the middle of East Michigan Avenue, Garcia said. The 23-year-old Lansing man had a gunshot wound to his left calf. The victim told police he had been shot behind a party store on East Michigan Avenue, near Hosmer Street. He was taken to a local hospital and treated. Garcia said the man appeared intoxicated and was uncooperative when paramedics arrived. Anyone with information about either incident is urged to call CrimeStoppers anonymously at 483-STOP. Tips can also be sent anonymously by text message. Send the message to 847411, begin the message with “LPD517,” leave a space, then type the message.

Businesses say they’re hurting from Saginaw work Laura Misjak

LANSING TWP. — Traffic along

the typically busy West Saginaw Street has dwindled since road construction began in April and business owners say they are suffering. “Saginaw is a ghost street now,” said Les LeMonde, an employee at Insty-Prints, 3121 W. Saginaw St. “Once people experience (the construction) once, they are just avoiding the entire area.” LeMonde said sales the past six weeks have been the worst InstyPrintshashadinthelastthreeyears, thought he was not more specific. He and several other business owners spoke about the construction-bruised business along the Saginaw Street corridor during a

Coulter takes on ‘Demonic’ liberalism

Commentator touts book at Lansing church Scott Davis

Ann Coulter pulled no punches Thursday in Lansing. After all, she said, she’s taking on the nation’s “liberal mob.” The fiesty conservative commentator swung by Central United Methodist Church to promote her new book, “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America.” She also claimed

Road work Continued From 1B

the projects that have cut into traffic at his restaurant. “Every business from Canal Road all the way to (Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard) is being affected,” Ghannam said. MDOT officials held three public meetings in Delta Townshipbeforeconstruction. They were poorly attended. “We aren’t perfect any more than the rest of you are,” said MDOT Lansing Transportation Service Center Manager Steve Bower. “We can’t predict how traffic will flee the area with a halfmile detour. If I would have known what I know now, we would have sent out letters all the way to the river.” Rob Welch, assistant delivery engineer on the Saginaw Street project, said crews are working overtime and using a concrete mixture that strengthens faster to speed up the project. Once construction is finished, traffic lights will be equipped with sensors to better control vehicle flow, three concrete islands are planned to control illegal turns near Lansing Mall in Delta Township and there will be more sidewalks and better lighting near I-96. “Concerns are not falling on deaf ears,” Welch said. “We are doing everything we can.”

President Barack Obama is leading the country to socialism and ruin. Health care reform legislation passed in 2009 is a case in point, she said. Coulter contended the health insurance system was working fine until government began decadesagotomandatetreatments—suchasgamblingaddiction therapy — that would be covered by insurers. “As usual, the Democrat solution for a problem created by government is more government,” Coulter told about 500 people at the downtown church. “I don’t know why conservatives are upset that Obama golfs. As long as he is golfing, he is not socializing another part

of the economy.” Coulter’s visit, part of a Michigan tour that also includes stops in Troy and GrandRapids,wassponsored by the free-market group Americans for ProsperityMichigan. Coulter, who has a degree from the University of Michigan Law School, also took questions from the audience and had a book-signing session afterward. While Coulter dismissively mentioned former Gov. Jennifer Granholm (“Michigan is Native American for ‘No more Granholm’”) Republican Gov. Rick Snyder was absent from the talk. In recent days, Snyder has taken heat from conservatives for be-

ing the only Republican governor nationwide who has refused to seek a repeal of health care reform. Coulter mainly discussed national politics. Among her observations: » Al-Qaida leader Osama’s bin Laden’s death proves that enhanced interrogation works. » There were, in fact weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. » Republicans are conciliatory by nature while Democrats have a contrary, mob-like mentality. » The only way to deal with a real mob is through aggressive tactics, such as the way the National Guard dealt with rioting students

Conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter speaks Thursday at Central United Methodist Church in Lansing. MATTHEW DAE SMITH FOR THE LSJ

at Kent State University. Coulter also said Democrats have no right to claim the moral high ground on civil rights because for many decades after the Civil War southern Democrats fought

anti-lynching laws and other civil rights legislation. “They used to appeal to the mob of segregationists,” Coulter said. “Now, they just appeal to whatever mob comes along.”

Advocates protest raid Supreme Court on Livingston dispensary takes medical

marijuana cases

Owners face prison after sting operation

Justices to rule on outdoor grows, retroactive registry coverage

Daily Press & Argus

BRIGHTON — As more than a dozen protesters carried signs in front of Brighton’s 53rd District Court building in support of the operators of the Marshall Alternatives medical marijuana dispensary, owners Alan and Christi Marshall were arraigned inside Thursdaymorningoncharges of delivery of marijuana. Alan Marshall, 39, is also charged as a habitual offender. He could face eight years in prison. Christi Marshall, 37, could face four years in prison. Also charged is dispensary employee Stephanie Lynn Baxter, 30, who faces two counts of delivery of marijuana. Not guilty pleas were entered by the court for all three defendants. All three were released on $10,000 personal recognizance bonds. They are scheduled to appear in court again next month.

Robin Schneider (left) and Jamie Lowell carry signs protesting recent raids and legal action against Marshalls Alternatives near Fowlerville. The group of more than a dozen protesters stood outside of Livingston County District Court on Thursday morning. The protesters said law enforcement targets medical marijuana users in spite of a referendum approved by voters in November 2008 allowing the medical use of marijuana. “We’ve got to break the law to treat ourselves,” said Robert “Monkey Paw” Garner, who traveled from Mt. Clemens to participate in the protest. Marshall Alternatives has been raided twice recently by the Livingston and Washtenaw Narcotics

Team, once on March 2 and again Tuesday. According to court documents, the Marshalls several times sold marijuana to an undercover officer who had a fake medical marijuana card. DenisePollicella,business attorney for Marshall Alternatives, said the officer’s use of a fake medical marijuana card is “entrapment.” She and the Marshalls have consistently said they believe they are operating the facility in a legal fashion.

DETROIT — The Michigan Supreme Court has agreed to hear two criminal cases about medical marijuana, the first such appeals accepted by the state’s highest court since voters approved the limited use of marijuana in 2008. In a case from Shiawassee County, the court will consider what’s meant by keeping marijuana in an “enclosed,lockedfacility,”a requirement under the law. In a second case, from Oakland County, the issues include whether someone using marijuana must have consulted a doctor after the law was passed, not before. In both, drug charges were dismissed but later restored by the Michigan Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court said Thursday it would welcome input from the attorney

general and groups representing defense lawyers and prosecutors. Michigan allows marijuana to be used to alleviate the symptoms of certain illnesses if someone sees a doctor and gets a state-issued card. Larry King, 55, of Shiawassee County, has chronic back pain. Despite having a state card, he was charged with drug crimes after Owosso police discovered marijuana growing in a dog kennel, which had a locked, 6-foot-high fence and was partiallycoveredwithblack plastic on the sides. In Oakland County, Alexander Kolanek, 25, said he smoked marijuana to deal with problems related to Lyme disease. He talked to a doctor about the benefits of pot before voters approved its use but didn’t get the doctor’s authorization until after an arrest for possession in 2009.

Cassella agreed that MSU’s turf folks are among the best in the business — “so much so,” he added, “that they know exactly what it takes to get Spartan Stadium back to world-class status as quickly as possible.” And Michigan soil, they concluded, just won’t cut it. The Colorado company, Cassella said, has grown and installed fields for other sports venues across the country, and has a “stellar reputation.” In fact, because the U2 concert was postponed from last year, MSU’s field has been growing for more than a year — in Colorado.

Tricky timing

Greg Ianni, associate athletics director, said the reason they went with the Colorado turf was the

The MSU folks, thinking they only had a few months between the concert and the start of the football season, decided they needed the optimum soil match in Colorado to get the field ready for fall 2010. If they knew they had 15 months or so for the turnaround, Ianni said, they could have come up with the right soil blend, and grown the turf at MSU.

The turf folks were on board with the Colorado plan all along, he added. Cassella said it will take a few seasons to get (the field) back to top condition, but that it will be functional in the fall. And, in case you’re wondering, the U2 folks are paying for the whole thing.

June "Shorty" Stow

June "Shorty" Stow, formerly of East Lansing, lived a full and vibrant life and died peacefully surrounded by the love of her family on June 19, 2011. She was born on January 3, 1919 in Alliance, OH, one of identical twin daughters to Clara B. and Curtis M. Shetler. She graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University in 1940 and met and married her husband Robert M. Stow, M.D. in 1944. They moved to East Lansing in 1952 where they lived for 50 years. In recent years, following Bob’s death in 2003, she resided in Scottsdale, AZ and Glen Lake, MI. All who know her will remember her capacity for love, kindness and generosity. Throughout her life June made her family her focus and was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

She danced for charity in the Junior League Follies and with all of her grandsons at their weddings. June devoted years to her volunteer work. Washing dishes for her church, delivering meals to the homebound, working in the gift shop at Sparrow Hospital, pushing a snack cart at St. Lawrence Hospital, and selling in and organizing for the Junior League Thrift Shop. Her white gloves never stopped her from rolling up her sleeves and getting dirty. The "Stow House" was always open to dozens of teens she fed, taught to play bridge and golf but mostly just kept out of trouble. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 58 years, granddaughter Stephanie A. Stow and twin sister Jean Jones. She is survived by her son Robert C. Stow and wife Karen, daughter Kay Riegel and husband Al, grandsons, Robert Stow and wife Debbie, Geoffrey Stow and wife Amy, David Church and wife Caren, Bradley Church and wife Christina, Brian Riegel, Matthew Riegel and wife Megan and fourteen great-grandchildren.

Today’s probable pitchers, lines

Nationals 1, Washington manager Jim Riggleman's MARINERS 0 sudden resignation came soon after the Nationals completed a three-game sweep. Pinch-hitter Laynce Nix hit a sacrifice fly to left in the bottom of the ninth to score Danny Espinosa, who easily beat a throw from Mike Carp that was well up the first-base line. The Nationals have won 11 of 12 and have a winning record for the first time since April 20 — and their first winning record this late in the season since the next-to-last game in 2005. The Nationals swept the Mariners with three one-run victories. GIANTS 2, San Francisco’s Tim Lincecum struck out 12 Twins 1 in seven superb innings. Miguel Tejada and Cody Ross drove in runs for the Giants, who won their second straight following a season-long five-game skid. Michael Cuddyer extended his hitting streak to 12 games with three hits and an RBI for Minnesota, which lost its second in a row after a season-best eight-game win streak. METS 4, New York’s Chris Capuano pitched six Athletics 1 scoreless innings before leaving with a side injury in a game that was delayed by rain for 2 hours, 15 minutes. Capuano shut down the A’s on five hits without a walk and struck out seven. Jose Reyes hit a pair of RBI singles. D’backs 5, Juan Miranda and Miguel Montero hit solo ROYALS 3 homers and Chris Young drove in two runs for the Diamondbacks, who completed the three-game sweep. Daniel Hudson has won three straight starts and is 6-0 in his last eight, with Arizona going 7-1 in that span. CARDINALS Chris Carpenter threw seven strong innings 12 and Jon Jay and Lance Berkman homered . Phillies 2 Carpenter picked up his first victory since May 10, ending a string of seven successive starts without a win. Philadelphia starter Roy Oswalt left after two innings due to tightness in his lower back.

Area golfers advance at Michigan-Am DeWitt teenager Jones among the locals to move on Tom Lang For the Lansing State Journal

HARBOR SPRINGS — DeWitt teenager Alex Jones made the most of his firstever match play experience, winning 4-3 over former Michigan Amateur quarterfinalist Jeff Champine, 39, Thursday, at Boyne Highlands Resort. Jones and the other 31 first-round winners went back out on the course Thursday evening to play as many holes as possible in round 2 before darkness set in. Poor weather has delayed the 100th Michigan Amateur each day this week, as the final 16 players are typically determined by Thursday evening.


“It’s a lot different just playing against someone else instead of against a score,” Jones said of the match play format. “It Jones takes a lot of pressure off.” Jones was 2-up through six holes before losing Nos. 7 and 8. Jones regained the lead with a par on No. 9 and didn’t trail again. Jerry Gunthorpe, 48, of Ovid won his opening match, 2-up over Kevin Janasik, who put his last shot on No. 18 into the water that ominously guards the entire front of the green. Janasik conceded to Gunthorpe in the fairway after he put his approach shot to within 10 feet of the cup. Okemos golfer Eric Lilleboe, the defending runner-up, won 5-3 over Lyle Wolberg of the Detroit Golf Club. Lilleboe is the No. 3 seed by virtue of a 2-under, 142 in two rounds of

stroke play. Lilleboe and Jones both indicated the poor weather is likely helping the younger players who are more Lilleboe often forced to play in bad conditions for high school and college teams’ scheduled matches. “I think the bad weather helps us; I don’t think we like it any better, but maybe we’re a little more used to it,” Lilleboe said. “Because the ball isn’t rolling, I’m just hitting my driver everywhere. I’m hitting it well right now, so I love the green light to hit driver everywhere.” Added Jones: “The course is long enough as it was, and the rains kind of made it even longer, but the course still seems very playable,” Jones said. “In high school golf season, we were basically playing in the snow this spring, so this is nothing compared to what I’ve

played through.” Other local first-round match play winners include: John Murphy, 5-4 over Joel Siegel, and Dave Ellis (MSU) 1-up over former MSU player Jimmy Chestnut, who won the Michigan Amateur in 2008. Charlotte’s Nathan Clark won in a 23-hole marathon over Chris Cunningham, and Nick Gunthorpe moved on by virtue of a 3-1 win over Sazan Bardha. If the Gunthorpe’s are to face each other it would be in the semifinals, scheduled for Saturday morning. Former MSU player Payne Gniewek blitzed the field with winning scores of 6-5, and 7-5, being the first to complete two rounds late Thursday. Many locals got bumped out in the first round of match play: Alma’s Randy Lewis (2-1), DeWitt’s Russ Cunningham (21 holes), Garrett Simons (1-down) of Grand Ledge, and Lansing’s Matt Johnson (3-2 to Howell’s Steve Fedewa).

PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Top-ranked Yani Tseng shot a 6-under 66 on Thursday to take a one-stroke lead over Paula Creamer in the first round of the LPGA Championship. Angela Stanford, Meena Lee, Diana D’Alessio and Stacy Prammanasudh were 4 under, and Morgan Pressel, Stacy Lewis, Ryann O’Toole, Amy Hung, Minea Blomqvist and Hee Young Park were 3 under. Defending champion Cristie Kerr, who was ailing with a light case of the flu, shot an even-par 72. Tseng made five birdies on the front nine and three more on the back to go with a pair of bogeys. She recovered from a bad tee shot at the par-4 18th hole that landed in the thick right rough, hit her second shot to 4 feet, and drained the birdie putt for sole possession of the lead. Tseng won the LPGA State Farm Classic on June 12 for her second victory of the year. Play was halted for just over 2 hours in early evening by a severe thunderstorm and six players failed to finish the round. » Travelers Championship: At Cromwell, Conn., Michael Bradley had a onestroke lead when first-round play in the Travelers Championship was suspended for the day. Bradley was 6 under with two holes left when play was stopped at 11:30 a.m. at TPC River Highlands. Officials reopened the driving range late in the afternoon and hoped to resume play at 5:45 p.m., but another shower forced more delays. Officials eventually decided not to restart play before 7 a.m. today. » BMW International Open: Sweden’s Henrik Stenson shot an 8-under 64 in rainy conditions to take a one-stroke lead after the first round of the BMW International Open in Munich, Germany. England’s Gary Boyd was second.

Top seed Virginia ousts California

After grabbing him with their first No. 1 pick since taking James in 2003, the Cavs used the No. 4 selection on Texas forward Tristan Thompson. They were the first team since the 1983 Houston Rockets with two top-four picks. The Minnesota Timberwolves took Arizona forward Derrick Williams with the No. 2 pick. The Utah Jazz then took Turkish big man Enes Kanter third with their first of two lottery selections. The league’s uncertain labor situation hung over the draft, and likely weakened it. Potential top-10 picks such as Jared Sullinger of Ohio State and Harrison Barnes were among those who decided to stay in school, without knowing when their rookie

seasons would have started. Stern, who could lock out his players next week if a deal for a new collective bargaining agreement is not reached, was booed when he came onto the stage at the Prudential Center. Purdue’s JaJuan Johnson was the only Big Ten player taken in the first round, by the New Jersey Nets at No. 27. Second-round picks from the conference included: Wisconsin’s Jon Leuer (Milwaukee), Michigan’s Darius Morris (L.A. Lakers), Ohio State’s Jon Diebler (Portland) and Purdue’s E’Twaun Moore (Boston). Keith Benson became the first player ever drafted from Oakland University, going to the Atlanta Hawks in the second round.

OMAHA, Neb. — Unbeaten Tyler Wilson carried a shutout into the eighth inning, Virginia used a four-run sixth to break open a close game and the No. 1-seeded Cavaliers eliminated California from the College World Series with a 8-1 victory on Thursday night. Virginia (56-11) will face defending national champion South Carolina in the Bracket 2 final. The Cavs would need to beat the Gamecocks tonight and again Saturday to reach next week’s best-of-three finals. The loss ends an improbable postseason run for California (38-23), which started the year with its program scheduled to be dropped in 2012 for budgetary reasons. A $9 million fundraising effort saved the program. Kenny Swab singled and came around to score on a threebase error to start Virginia’s big sixth inning. Wilson (10-0) allowed five

Three of the first six players taken were from Europe, capitalizing on the absence of some American college players who might have gone in their spots and made this a stronger draft. It was the first time four international players who didn’t play at a U.S. college were selected in the lottery. Even Irving has international ties.

Cleaves cited for suspended license

MOUNT MORRIS — Mateen Cleaves has been cited for driving with a suspended license. The former Michigan State star was pulled over for speeding by Mount Morris Township Police on Wednesday night, the day his license was suspended. Cleaves’ license was suspended because he didn’t pay a responsibility fee for having too many points in February. Cleaves has to pay an additional $125 to have his license reinstated, according to secretary of state records. Frank Manley, Cleaves’ attorney, says payment has been sent to restore his client’s license.

hits over his career-high 72/3 innings. Cal starter Dixon Anderson (4-4) took the loss, failing to get past the third inning for the third time in five starts. Virginia, which batted .246 with just three extra-base hits in its first two CWS games, got 11 hits off five pitchers. Five of those hits came as the Cavaliers extended their lead to 6-0 in the sixth.

Swab scored after Darrel Matthews misplayed the bounce on his hard drive into center field and the ball rolled to the wall. The play was scored a single and three-base error. It was Matthews’ first error in 50 games this season. Keith Werman and John Barr followed with RBI singles and Chris Taylor with a run-scoring double. Cal had rallied from a 7-1 sixth-inning deficit to beat Baylor in the regional finals. There would be no comeback against Wilson, the Baltimore Orioles’ 10th-round draft pick who retired 11 in a row from the second to sixth innings. Wilson, who struck out five and walked none, left in the eighth after Cal put two runners on base. Cody Winiarski relieved, and Tony Renda ended the shutout with an RBI single.

Lansing Catholic QB Rush commits to Chippewas Lansing Catholic’s Cooper Rush has committed to play football for Central Michigan in the fall of 2012. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Rush threw for 2,252 yards, 25 touchdowns and ran for 414 yards and 11 scores during his junior season, his second as a starting quarterback. He led the Cougars to a 9-1 finish, including their first perfect regular season Rush and league championship since 1991. Rush also earned a Division 3-4 all state honorable mention. “He’s worked really hard to achieve this, and I’m really proud of him,” Lansing Catholic coach Jim Ahern said. “He earned the scholarship” Ahern said Rush also had interest from Cincinnati and other Mid-American Conference schools. His quarterbacks coach at CMU will be Morris Watts, a former Michigan State offensive coordinator who was hired in January by Chippewas head coach Dan Enos. “(Rush) said he felt really comfortable with Watts. … He compared the other schools to Central, and he liked CMU the best,” Ahern said.

Reports: Spartans add 3 recruits Linebacker Lyles from Southfield gives MSU 9 for ’12 Denny Schwarze

The Michigan State Spartans reportedly have picked up three more commitments in the last few days for the 2012 football recruiting class. Recruiting website has reported the Spartans

Lyles is the highest ranked of the three on Rivals, the 44th-best outside linebacker in the country who also had offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Iowa, Pittsburgh, Stanford, Syracuse, Vanderbilt and a handful of Mid-American

Conference schools. Kerrick committed to the Spartans on Wednesday, while Lyles and Price each gave verbal pledges on Thursday. The MSU recruiting class for 2012 now stands at nine. Lyles becomes just the second in-state commitment, joining linebacker/safety Riley Bullough of Traverse City’s St. Francis High. The Spartans have received five commitments since June 6, when quarterback Tyler O’Connor of Lima, Ohio, decided to give a commitment to MSU.

Cavaliers get Duke’s Irving with No. 1 pick

Many NBA teams favor international flavor in 1st round

Sexton’s Miller has yet to talk to other schools MOUNT PLEASANT — Sexton graduate Onaje Miller was on hand Thursday at media day for the 31st Annual Michigan High School Football Coaches Association All-Star Game, just a few days after getting his letter of intent release from Michigan State. Miller had committed to MSU in February 2010. He also Miller had offers from Michigan, Wisconsin and Central Michigan then, but he said Thursday that he has not started to look at other schools yet. “I haven’t had contact with no schools or nothing right now,” Miller said. “I’m just hanging out up here and just not really doing nothing but just thinking about the All-Star Game.” While Miller’s college destination has been thrown for a loop, it hasn’t affected his mindset of being an all-star. “It’s been a good feeling. It’s been a good four days (at Central Michigan). I’ve bonded with all the players,” Miller said.

Pistons use No. 8 selection to grab Kentucky point guard Vince Ellis Detroit Free Press

DETROIT — It remains to be seen if Brandon Knight will turn into a good pro. And ultimately that is what will be judged if Pistons fans eventually embrace him. But after watching the international big men come off the board in Thursday night’s NBA draft, the Pistons used the eighth pick to pick the silky smooth combo guard from Kentucky. “I’m just happy to be picked by the Pistons,” Knight said after getting drafting in Newark, N.J. “I had a great interview with them. I didn’t get a chance to work out with the Pistons but I had the

Still, we thought he might be past this by now, what with being a world-famous doctor in his early 50s. But now he’s behaved badly at career day. He assumed another doctor’s identity and gave a rambling (and, sometimes, upsetting) account of cases he was still trying to work out in his head. Now we meet him waiting for the principal, alongside two muchyounger delinquents. Since they are TV kids (and he is House) they can analyze his problems. The result is the rerun of a great episode.

‘Cars 2’ funny, great looking — but lacks Pixar pizzazz Bill Goodykoontz Gannett


y now we expect movies made by Pixar, the studio that has given us the “Toy Story” films, “The Incredibles” and “Up,” to name just a few classics, to be great almost by default. “Cars 2” proves an exception to that rule. It’s sometimes funny, often silly but never really transcendent, though the same could probably be said of the original, as well. It’s a race movie as well as a spy caper on wheels, and at its heart lies a central mystery: Who decided to make Larry the Cable Guy the star? I don’t know, but his Mater, the dopey, good-hearted tow truck from the first “Cars,” is the focus of the sequel, which is sort of like basing a fourth “Toy Story” on Slinky Dog. The star of “Witless Protection,” among other delights, can only carry a film so far.

Characters, story don’t jell in ‘Bad Teacher’ 4 OUT OF 10

Bill Goodykoontz Gannett

There’s something slightly off about “Bad Teacher.” Cameron Diaz is fine as a gold-digging teacher who spends more time drinking, smoking dope and either insulting or ignoring her students than she does actually instructing them (mostly she shows movies). Lucy Punch is good as a maddeningly over-enthusiastic colleague. Jason Timberlake is mostly wasted as a rich guy who substitute teaches, but he’s game for just about anything. But somehow the characters — and their story — don’t come together in a satisfying way. Director Jake Kasdan coaxes some laughs out of the film, to be sure, but only Jason Segel, as a cynical gym teacher, seems like a real person instead of a caricature. Everyone else seems like they’re trying just a touch too hard. Elizabeth Halsey (Diaz) gets dumped by the rich guy she was going to marry for money, forc-

Director Mark Waters manages to wring some charm out of the film, and out of Carrey, making the movie not nearly as bad as you may have feared. — Bill Goodykoontz/Gannett » RATED: Rated PG for mild rude humor and some language. » ONLINE: www.poppers

GREEN LANTERN » 2 out of 10: Green just isn’t the superhero color this year. Beyond its dominant hue, director Martin Campbell’s earnest, noisy “Green Lantern” has little in common with the blase comic indolence of “The Green Hornet,” which starred Seth Rogen and came out, to general disdain, five months ago. (Now there’s a name for a villain: Gen. Disdain.) — Michael Phillips/MCT News Service » RATED: Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action » ONLINE: http://greenlanternmovie


» 4 out of 10: Writer and director Gavin Wiesen has filled his film with teen coming-of-age cliches, but strong performances by Freddie Highmore as a confused outsider and Emma Roberts as a complicated young beauty make the movie better than it otherwise could have been. Fox Searchlight Pictures — Bill Goodykoontz/Gannett » RATED: Rated PG-13 for thematic elements including sexual content, language, teen drinking and partying. » ONLINE: theartofgettingby

Cubicle farm is really a barnyard


ear Amy: We work for a large company with the typical fabric-lined cubicle walls. As anyone who has worked in this type of office environment knows, these walls are not soundproof. We have a co-worker who is constantly sneezing, coughing, blowing his nose and yawning. We also enjoy the occasional burp and hiccup after he consumes his cans of soda. There are loud personal and business phone calls during which we begin to critique his grammar to ourselves. Along with this is the unpleasant smell of body odor and lack of dental hygiene. We will not enter an elevator after he exits or sit by him during a meeting because of his odor. We work in a professional office, requiring “business casual” dress, but he comes to work with stained, wrinkled clothing, and his coat is held together with duct tape. We have complained to our management team several times, but nothing is done. Do you have any suggestions? — Holding Our Breath Dear Holding: You can’t control how your coworker dresses, and you (and he) probably can’t control some of the bodily noises he makes. But how his coat is fastened is none of your business — and some of your comments are unkind. If your co-worker is speaking too loudly during calls and this interferes with your own professional duties, you should ask him if he could please lower his voice. If your management team won’t help you by asking him to modulate his behavior or hygiene habits, then your only choice is to stop sniping and concentrate on figur-

» The Aries moon brings zest to the day’s events.Your best bet is to decide ahead of time how you’ll use this fuel and plan for its expression.

once a certain problem is solved, you’ll coast on easy street for a while. There will always be new obstacles, and that’s what makes this journey so fun.




» You will heighten your awareness through instruction, especially if you’re the teacher. As you show someone how to accomplish a task, you will see how it could be done better.


» You like to have a general sense of where things are going. Encourage loved ones to keep you abreast of breaking news.


» You will knock yourself out to please others. Your selflessness will be strongly felt, and your approval rating will soar.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)

ing out how to tolerate him. Dear Amy: We live in a townhouse with our two children (ages 4 and 1). We have neighbors who smoke, and the smoke regularly wafts into our open windows. We close the windows to limit the smoke coming into the house, especially since the children’s bedrooms are at the rear of the house where the neighbors smoke (on their deck and patio). What is the best course of action? Should we continue to close the windows whenever the neighbors are smoking (which could be all evening in the nice weather), or should we say something to them? — No Secondhand Smoke Dear No: According to the National Cancer Institute’s website (www. “Children exposed to secondhand smoke are at increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome, ear infections, colds, pneumonia, bronchitis and more severe asthma. Being exposed to secondhand smoke slows the growth of children’s lungs and can cause them to cough, wheeze, and feel breathless.” Yikes. For now, close your windows when your neighbors are smoking. You can also ask your neighbors to install an outside fan that would blow the smoke away from their deck and away from your home.

Gomez gets girl-power Days after her disc’s release, boost in new music and film Gomez will get another girl-power

Katy Perry and Britney Spears appear on a CD together but it’s not the latest “Now” compilation. Rather, the pop singers have written songs on Selena Gomez & the Scene’s new album, “When the Sun Goes Down.” “I did have a lot of artists that I was very lucky enough to have songs written by and it’s a good, uplifting album,” Gomez said of her third CD. “It’s really fun and very dance-y Gomez and I hope people like it.” “I think it’s a powerful CD,” Gomez said in a recent interview. The 18-year-old’s first two albums have reached gold status. The new record — which has three songs co-penned by Gomez — is out next week.

Spielberg fired Megan Fox after Hitler talk, Bay says

Michael Bay says Steven Spielberg demanded he dismiss Megan Fox from the third “Transformers” film after she compared Bay to Hitler. Bay tells GQ magazine in an article appearing in its July issue that Spielberg, who is an executive producer on the film, told the director to “fire her right now” after Fox made the Hitler remarks to a British magazine last year. Fox told the magazine before production began on the third “Transformers” installment that Bay “wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is.”

DEATH » E.M. Broner, a pioneering Jewish feminist writer, has died in New York City. She was 83. Broner was the author of 10 books, including “The Women’s Haggadah,” “Weave of Women” and “Mourning: A Kaddish Journal.”

The 25-year-old actress was replaced by Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.”

Reggae star Buju Banton gets 10 years in drug case

A federal judge sentenced Grammy-winning reggae singer Buju Banton to 10 years in prison Thursday, the lowest sentence legally allowed for his role in a large cocaine trafficking deal in 2009. The 38-year-old Jamaican recording artist got a break when U.S. District Judge James S. Moody threw out a gun conviction, which would have added another five years to the minimum sentence. Banton’s attorney, David Markus, said with time already served and good behavior, he could be out in six years. In a statement, Banton thanked family, fans and supporters from around the world who flooded the court file with letters of support.

Cars 2 Continued From 1C

But that lesson gets put on the back burner for a time, because Mater somehow gets himself involved in international espionage. Someone is trying to sabotage the Grand Prix, and spies Finn McMissle (Michael Caine) and Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer) are trying to figure out who and why. Mistaking Mater for a fellow spy — the idiot act is flawless, Finn tells him — Mater is soon wearing disguises and working undercover, haplessly bumbling his way to success. You’ll note that I haven’t mentioned Lightning for a while. He disappears from the film in similar fashion for long stretches. This is very much Mater’s movie, so your feelings about Larry the Cable Guy’s act will go a long way toward coloring your feelings about the film. On the plus side, it’s a great-looking movie. The

Movies Continued From 1C perfect, but it’s a lot of fun. Kids inadvertently film a train crash that turns out to be much more. The kids, particularly newcomer Joel Courtney and Elle Fanning, are fantastic. — Bill Goodykoontz/Gannett » RATED: PG-13, for intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence, language and some drug use. » ONLINE:


» 3.5 out of 10: Jordana Beatty stars as the title character in director John Schultz’s film based on the popular children’s books by Megan McDonald (who also co-wrote the screenplay). Relative newcomer Beatty shows promise as Judy, a little girl who develops a foolproof (read: unworkable) system for surviving summer. But she’s hamstrung by the direction and the script, coming off mostly as a whiny, bratty kid. On the other hand, bonus points for including Urkel (Jaleel White) in the cast! — Bill Goodykoontz/Gannett » RATED: PG, for some mild


Animated character Lightning McQueen, voiced by Owen Wilson, is shown in a scene from “Cars 2.” animation is fantastic, particularly during the race sequences and the opening scene, a direct nod to James Bond films, with Finn involved in an action bit that would make 007 proud. What “Cars 2” lacks is

that moment the best Pixar films have, when parents and children alike stand slack-jawed with awe at something wonderful happening on-screen — when the films move beyond mere entertainment and become something more,

something better. “Cars 2” doesn’t have that moment, and seems content with merely making us laugh. Perhaps it’s unfair to expect anything more, but for Pixar, that’s the price of success.

too high, he’s a refreshing relief. Kasden and writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg construct the film as a series of set pieces, some funnier than others. When Elizabeth learns there is money to be had in having the class with the best standardized test scores, it’s amusing to see her shift into action as a suddenly com-

mitted teacher (it’s amusing to watch the class reaction to the change, as well). Thomas Lennon is dependably funny as an official with the answers to the tests, and whom Elizabeth of course must dupe. Any scene with John Michael Higgins, as the put-upon principal with a thing for dolphins, or Phyllis Smith as an uptight teacher, is welcome.

But in the end it just doesn’t quite add up. Maybe it’s the too-easy ending that feels like a cop-out. Maybe it’s the cardboard cut-out nature of the characters. Probably it’s a combination of those and other elements that leads to Diaz’s bad teacher not being as bad as she might have been, and “Bad Teacher” not as good as it could have been.

» 6 out of 10: Kevin Bacon steals the show as a smirking mutant maniac in this prequel, which also features hunky Brits James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender as a young Charles Xavier and Magneto. The mix of familiar and new characters, along with plenty of big action, makes this a more than serviceable popcorn flick for the summer. — Kerry Lengel/Gannett » RATED: PG-13, for intense sequences of action and violence, some sexual content including brief partial nudity and language. » ONLINE: www.x-men

THE HANGOVER PART 2 » 5 out of 10: Director Todd Phillips helmed the first “Hangover,” but he just can’t recreate the whackedout energy or the element of surprise. There are laughs, but the stretches between them grow longer as the film goes on. That leaves the movie to coast by on leftover goodwill. In this case, that only goes so far, as even Zach Galifianakis’ man-child act is starting to wear out its

THOR » 8 out of 10: Kenneth Branagh’s take on the Marvel comics superhero (and Norse god of thunder) is loud and reckless, like its protagonist — and it’s great summer fun. Chris Hemsworth is surprisingly good as Thor, Tom Hiddleston even better as his brother Loki. Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins also star. — Bill Goodykoontz, Gannett » RATED: PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence


» 4 out of 10: Johnny Depp returns as Capt. Jack Sparrow in the fourth installment of the blockbuster franchise, and a good thing — he’s the best thing about the film, in which Jack seeks the Fountain of Youth.

The most famous celebrity rehab case, Dwight Gooden, appears later in the season, but glimpses of a puffy, overweight former superstar are offered. Lohan tells Pinsky, “How

sick is it that I still have my coke dealer’s phone number in my phone. I know for me it’s gonna lead to a really bad place.” Says Fisher, “I do make adult films again, I’m just a girl trying to survive. When I don’t drink, I can’t do it ...” Amy Fisher and Michael Lohan on the same reality show? What have we done to deserve this? Fill out this lineup with Jeremy Jackson — long ago the Hoff’s son on “Baywatch” and currently someone who, by his own admission, consumes more steroids than the National and American leagues combined — and Adler, who’s actually doing his second “Celeb Rehab” tour, and what else could you possibly need? Obviously, a long shower afterward. This isn’t a sad spectacle — but a tawdry one.

Tobey Maguire, others sued over poker winnings Anthony McCartney The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — “SpiderMan” star Tobey Maguire and other celebrities have been caught in a web of lawsuits seeking to reclaim more than $4 million won during unlicensed poker matches at upscale Beverly Hills hotels, court records show. The lawsuits were filed by a bankruptcy trustee attempting to recoup money for investors who were duped in a Ponzi scheme. The legal actions claim the clandestine Texas Hold ‘em matches were played between 2006 and 2009, and that card players won hundreds of thousands of dollars from Bradley Ruderman, architect of the Ponzi scheme. Maguire is being sued for $311,000 plus interest. In all, 22 people have been individually sued to try to recoup money. Among them was Nick Cassavetes, director of “The

Notebook.” The trustee is attempting to recover nearly $73,000 plus interest from the actor-director. His attorney, Ronald Richards, said Cassavetes engaged in no wrongdoing and may try to settle the case for a reduced amount or fight it on the basis that the money cannot be reclaimed. The lawsuit cites only one 2007 game in which Cassavetes was involved. He was Maguire sued along with others who received a check from Ruderman. However, the matches weren’t documented, so it was unclear if Ruderman lost the money himself or was paying for another player, Richards said. “The theory that is being advanced by the trustee is what we call a novel or original theory,” he added. Maguire’s attorney, Rob-

ert Barta, did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment but was expected to file a response to the suit later this week. Also being sued is billionairebusinessmanAlecGores, who along with his brother attempted to buy Miramax Films last year. Another defendant is “Welcome Back Kotter” star and poker afficianado Gabe Kaplan, who is beingaskedtoreturn$62,000, records show. Gores is being sued for $445,000. In a statement, his attorney Patricia Glaser noted the businessman had not been accused of wrongdoing and she wrote “there was nothing improper about the poker game that is the subject of this lawsuit.” “Mr. Gores will either successfully resolve the claim against him or successfully defend against the claim,” Glaser wrote. She also represents Kaplan, records show, but the statement made no mention of him or any other defendants.

Witches brew trouble on ‘True Blood’ Fourth season brings in new blood Sunday Bill Keveney USA TODAY

True Blood is truly a paragon of otherworldly diversity. This season, witches join the fourth-season HBO drama (Sunday, 9 p.m.), a cauldron of vampires, werewolves, werepanthers, fairies, shapeshifters and, once upon a time, maenads in rural Bon Temps, La. “There’s never a dull moment in our little town,” says Anna Paquin, who plays Sookie Stackhouse, the telepathic fairy/human hybrid at the center of Blood and

the Charlaine Harris novels on which the series is based. The different creatures “all come with their unique sets of gifts and problems, and it certainly makes for an exciting world for our viewers and for Sookie.” When Season 3 ended, Sookie (Anna Paquin) had split with longtime vampire beau Bill (Stephen Moyer, who is married to Paquin), was on the outs with vampire Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and had gone off with a mysterious woman; Bill and Eric had buried their antagonist, vampire king Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare); and Bill and Queen SophieAnne (Evan Rachel Wood) were about to do battle. Sookie’s dismissal of Bill and Eric represents another step in the once-naive char-

been problematic since vampires walked into her life.” That doesn’t mean she’s done with them. Season 4 finds Sookie off in the fairy world and Bill and Eric perceiving a threat from a coven leader, the seemingly unthreatening Wiccan Marnie (Fiona Shaw), who has drawn in Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) and Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis). Marnie’s magic causes Eric to lose his memory, throwing him into a con-

fused state much removed from his usual confident self. Her power to raise the dead could be problematic for the undead — i.e., vampires. “I think the writers wanted to try to find something that could weaken a vampire or control a vampire in some way,” Moyer says. “The witches are a conduit for something that hasn’t been around for 400 years. They represent something that can have control over vampires that is very threatening.” With the witches, Blood also becomes a bastion of equal opportunity. “What the witches bring us is the idea of magic being available to humans,” executive producer Alan Ball says. “It’s not just the realm of supernatural creatures.”

Answers to Sudoku

Police in East Patchogue, N.Y., filed a false-report charge against Nicholas Lalla, 32, in January (1995) after he had sworn out a complaint that his estranged wife slapped him. Lalla played for police an audiotape he had made, clandestinely, in which slapping sounds are heard amidst his yelling “Don’t hit me.” When police informed Mrs. Lalla of that clandestine audiotape, she played for them a clandestine videotape she had made of him staging the audiotaping: He is shown, alone, yelling “Don’t hit me” outside her house after she had walked away.

There are wonderful, loving, healthy animals at the Ingham County Animal Shelter who desperately need homes. YOU CAN HELP by calling 517-676-8370 or sponsoring an animal on the LSJ Pet Adoption Page

Appearing on our Adoption Page gives them a chance to be seen and adopted into a loving home or possibly, if lost, redeemed by their owners. The next Adoption Page with animals from the Ingham County Animal Shelter in Mason will run on

The WALKER building, located at the southwest corner of Grand River and Washington Avenue, 1135 N. Washington Ave., is proposed for rehabilitation for a mixed-use development, 2-3 retail units and 5 residential units. The property is zoned "F-1" Commercial District, an appropriate zoning district for the proposed use. The rehabilitation of this building is part of an overall strategy to strengthen the walkable connection along Grand River between the Comstock Park neighborhood redevelopment area and the commercial redevelopment in Old Town. The City is using Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for lead and asbestos rehabilitation only. The project is designed to maintain and restore the historic characteristics of the building. The City plans to do window replacement, removal of lead paint and surface restoration/repair on building exterior, remediation of lead paint on interior surfaces and removal of asbestos containing material to prepare the structure for further housing rehabilitation. Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) is partnering with the city to rehabilitate this structure. Specifically, MSHDA HOME funds will be used for the rehabilitation of the housing units. The proposed funding sources include: $160,000 CDBG/City of Lansing, $160,000 MSHDA HOME funds and $350,000 in owner funds which will be used primarily for rehabilitation of the commercial space, soft costs and site work.
