Shady past for ‘Grim Sleeper’ suspect

The 57-year-old man charged with 10 murders in the Los Angeles “Grim Sleeper” case was arrested at least 15 times over four decades and was in police custody many times after the killings began, probation and jail records show. The arrests of Lonnie Franklin Jr. for crimes including burglary, car theft and assault were never considered serious enough to send him Pool photo to state prison or to warrant his entry in the Franklin: Alleged state’s DNA database, “Grim Sleeper.” according to a report in Saturday’s Los Angeles Times. Franklin was arrested Wednesday on 10 counts of murder and other charges.

Robotic submarines removed the cap from the gushing well in the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday, beginning a period of at least two days when oil will flow freely into the sea. It’s the first step in placing a tighter dome that is supposed to funnel more oil to collection ships on the surface a mile above. If all goes according to plan, the tandem of the tighter cap and the surface ships could keep all the oil from polluting the fragile Gulf as soon as Monday. The oil is flowing mostly unabated into the water for about 48 hours — long enough for as much as 5 million gallons to gush out — until the new cap is installed. The hope for a permanent solution remains with two relief wells intended to plug it completely far beneath the seafloor. After the cap removal, engineers were to remove a bolted flange below the dome. The flange has to be taken off so another piece of equipment called a flange spool can go over the


Gulf spill: The containment cap covering the well head is lifted off the leak Saturday. drill pipe, where the sealing cap will be connected. The work could spill over into today, depending on how hard it is to pull off the flange, said Kent Wells, a BP senior vice president. BP has a backup plan in case that doesn’t work: A piece of machinery will pry the top and the bottom of the flange apart.

On Friday, National Incident Commander Thad Allen had said the cap could be in place by Monday. That’s still possible, given the timeline BP submitted to the federal government, but officials say it could take up to a week of tests before it’s clear whether the new cap is working. The cap now in use was installed June 4, but because it had to be fitted over a jagged cut in the well pipe, it allows some crude to escape. The new cap — dubbed “Top Hat Number 10” — follows 80 days of failures to contain or plug the leak. The company is also working to hook up another containment ship called the Helix Producer to a different part of the leaking well. The ship, which will be capable of sucking up more than 1 million gallons a day when it is fully operating, should be working by Sunday, Allen said. Some people in Louisiana’s oil-soaked Plaquemines Parish were skeptical that BP can contain the oil so soon. “Too many lies from the beginning,” oyster fisherman Goyo Zupanovich said while painting his boat at a marina in Empire. “I don’t believe them anymore.”

6 U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan A wave of violence killed six U.S. troops and at least a dozen civilians Saturday in Afghanistan’s volatile south and east, as American reinforcements moving into Taliban-dominated areas face up to the fierce resistance they expected. Senior U.S. military officers have warned that the fight in the Taliban’s spiritual birthplace would lead to a rise in casualties for troops. June was the deadliest month of the nearly 9-year-old war, and July has kept pace.

Taking it to the streets: Children wearing Catalonian flags take part in a protest in Barcelona on Saturday. Thousands of demonstrators marched in favor of Catalonia as a nation.

Catalonians rally for more autonomy More than a million people gathered Saturday in northeastern Barcelona to demand greater regional autonomy for Catalonia and protest a recent court ruling forbidding this prosperous region from calling itself a nation. City government spokesman Manuel Campillo said police had counted 1.1 million people. Spain’s courts recently granted sweeping new powers of self-rule to the region, but on Friday its highest court ruled that the country’s constitution recognized Spain as the country’s only nation, dealing a blow to efforts by Catalonia to assume that status.

Vets’ cremains put to rest at last Group on mission: Locate and identify for military burial

plished something for the veterans who did so much for us.” Rewarding missions

By Judy Keen USA TODAY HIGGINSVILLE, Mo. — Gervis and Mary Adney were finally laid to rest in the Missouri Veterans Cemetery on a cloudless morning. A bagpiper played Amazing Grace, a bugler played taps and a threeshot volley echoed across the hills. Since Mary Adney’s death in 1992 and her husband’s in 1989, their cremated remains had been in a funeral home’s storage facility, unclaimed. He had served in the Army in World War I. The Missing in America Project, a national non-profit organization that locates, identifies and inters veterans’ cremains, researched the dates of her birth and death and helped ensure that both received belated military burials. In all, 16 veterans and two spouses, including Mary and Gervis, were honored in a single ceremony and interred here. Their cremains had all been in storage, sometimes for decades. A Missouri law proposed by the Missing in America Project and passed last year made it possible for them to be laid to rest. The law eliminated liability for funeral homes that turn over veterans’ ashes that have been abandoned for at least a year to veterans’ service groups. “They are home now,” said Higginsville cemetery director Jess Rasmussen at the brief service, which was not attended by relatives of any of the 18 deceased. “They’re not forgotten anymore on a dusty shelf.” Missouri is among 12 states that have passed laws making it

Final resting place: Linda and Joe Smith pay their respects as cremains of a soldier are carried into a chapel at the Missouri Veterans Cemetery. easier for the Missing in America Project to arrange burials for veterans’ cremains; a national version is pending in Congress, says Linda Smith, the project’s national operations coordinator. ‘We are their family’ Since the Missing in America Project was founded in 2007, its volunteers have visited 864 funeral homes, identified cremains of 843 veterans and arranged interment for 792 of them. “We are their family,” says project founder Fred Salanti, 62, an Army veteran of the Vietnam War who lives in Redding, Calif. Under federal regulations, the Department of Veterans Affairs pays up to $300 for funerals and burials of honorably discharged veterans. Veterans and their dependents can be buried without charge at veterans cemeteries. Identifying veterans and documenting their military service — called missions by the Missing in

America Project — can require painstaking detective work. Records of long-stored cremains often don’t mention military service. Resolving the case of Donald Wylie, a Canadian who was in the U.S. Army during the SpanishAmerican War, took two years. He died in 1928; his cremains were interred in the Jacksonville, Mo., Veterans Cemetery in May. After verifying military service, Smith says, Missing in America writes to next of kin. If there’s no response, an ad is placed in a local newspaper before burial is arranged. She says the project has 200 active volunteers in 48 states and more are needed to find obituaries, dig through Social Security death records and request military documents. Smith, 59, who spent $400 of her own money last month on research, is a retired Department of Defense employee with a son in the Navy. “When a mission is complete,” she says, “you feel relief and pride that you’ve accom-

Army veteran Betty Herring, 63, a Missing in America volunteer in Buford, Ga., says the work is gratifying. “If it took all day every day, that’s what I would do,” she says. In a year, she has helped identify the cremains of 12 veterans. It’s hard to understand why cremains are abandoned, she says, but some had no next of kin. “If they have no families, we want to fill in,” she says. Sometimes Missing in America has trouble persuading funeral homes to let volunteers inventory stored cremains, but last month, the group reached an agreement with Dignity Memorial, a network of 1,800 funeral, cremation and cemetery providers. Dignity gives the group information about unclaimed urns and helps coordinate burials after veterans are identified. “This is very close to my heart. It gives me goose bumps just talking about it,” says Rich Carroll, a Coast Guard veteran who manages Dignity’s McGilley & Sheil Funeral Home in Kansas City, Mo. He helped arrange the 18 burials here. Patriot Guard motorcycle riders escorted the hearse into the cemetery. American Legion and VFW members formed an honor guard. The urns were carried one by one into the chapel and placed on a flag-draped table. David Holloway, a Navy veteran and pastor of St. Bernadette Catholic Church in Kansas City, gave the homily. “They are not forgotten,” he said. “We did not know them, but what they did continues to shape our country.” Sponsored by:

EVELYN NIEVES Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — As Philip Gerrie tells it, the idea of banning pet sales in San Francisco started simply enough, with a proposal to outlaw puppy and kitten mills. West Hollywood, Calif., had done it, with little fanfare. Why not the city of St. Francis, patron saint of animals, which prides itself on its compassion toward all creatures great and small?

Small animals, too

So Gerrie, a bee keeper and secretary of the San Francisco Commission of Animal Control & Welfare, a seven-member advisory board on animal issues to the city’s lawmakers, decided to suggest adding the idea to the commission’s agenda. “Then we came across the idea of adding small animals as well,” Gerrie recalled, “since all these ani-

The proposed ban on puppy and kitten mills became a proposed ban on the sale of just about every animal that could end up in a shelter. Attention on CNN

The Chronicle story prompted 793 comments and counting, many playing on only-in-San Francisco stereotypes. “Bay area people truly are nuts!” read a common refrain. It prompted CNN’s Jack Cafferty, who called the idea “not half bad,” to ask readers their thoughts, prompting 15 printed out pages of debate from around the globe. And the commission’s regularly scheduled meeting, usually attended by a handful of spectators, became a standing room only spectacle of close to 100 people. The commission, overwhelmed with varying opinions, voted not to vote, tabling the debate until at least another month.

Proposal comes back to bite city commission

mals are being euthanized” by animal shelters. The proposed ban on puppy and kitten mills became a proposed ban on the sale of just about every animal that might end up in a shelter: gerbils, guinea pigs, birds, hamsters, turtles, snakes, rats. Sales of rabbits and chicks are already banned in the city. The idea led to the panel’s biggest, longest monthly meeting in recent memory, not to mention blogger fodder around the world. Animal control and welfare commissioners say all they planned to do at their regularly scheduled meeting Thursday was discuss the idea, hear out those on all sides of the issue — pet store owners, rescue groups, pet owners and maybe, just maybe, take a vote on a ban. After a vote, the proposal would have to find a sponsor, preferably two, on the Board of Supervisors, pass muster as legislation with the city attorney, and then pass the Board. But once Gerrie’s idea made the front page of The San Francisco Chronicle Thursday — “Sell a guinea pig, go to jail,” the story began — it was famous. Or infamous.

‘Early’ school deal is small step ahead OUR POINT IS... T

he Legislature finished a K-12 budget by July 1, an act lawmakers apparently deemed sufficient to earn a couple of weeks of vacation after Independence Day. And they did actually adopt a school aid budget by the first day of schools’ fiscal year (though not really in time for school boards and citizens to practically include accurate state figures into their budget process). But the Legislature has not finished a state budget — far from it. And what was accomplished on the school front has more to do with factors outside the Capitol than inside it. Last week, the invaluable Citizens Research Council of Michigan analyzed the new school budget and how it came about. The council, a nonprofit, nonpartisan group, wrote, “The Michigan Legislature made major progress by adopting an annual SAF budget three months earlier than it did last year.” However ...

State lawmakers shouldn’t feel too proud of their work on the School Aid Fund this year.

“Although the FY2011 budget restores some funding, it is ‘short’ in that it retains a sizeable per-pupil reduction, originally enacted as part of the FY2010 budget. Furthermore, the budget deal is ‘short’ in that the Legislature left unresolved major decisions concerning projected general fund budget shortfalls for the current and next years, which may or may not affect the School Aid Fund.” CRC also noted this success was predicated not on a sudden burst of bipartisan comity, but a big change in the numbers. Between the January and May revenue estimates, figures for the school fund improved by more than $640 million for the current year and the next one. This is the budgetary equivalent of opening a desk

Support your libraries

Whenever I enter a local library, I am impressed with how much use it is getting by people of all ages. Whether I see a student doing research or a group of people using the computers or a parent or tutor reading to a small child, I am always impressed with the variety of materials. I am also pleased with the prompt and polite service I receive from the library staff. Having been a librarian and media specialist in both public and school libraries, I know how satisfying it can be to help people find books for pleasure or information. In these trying economic times, what a pleasure it is to be able to get what one wants for personal needs free of charge. Free libraries have been a part of our heritage. Of course, the materials must be paid for and the employees must be paid through public taxation, if we are to continue to be a city of literate, well informed citizens. Vote yes in support of our libraries on Aug. 3. Mary Monaghan Lansing

drawer and finding an uncashed check for $5,000 just before the mortgage is due. Armed with the cash infusion, legislators voted to slightly mitigate the cut imposed in the 2010 budget and add a few more dollars per pupil than was expected for 2011. (In one of Michigan’s wonderful little oddities, the state fiscal year is Oct. 1 to Sept. 30, while school districts’ years run July 1 to June 30.) Another achievement by lawmakers was not to grab up the surpluses in the school fund to fill in a massive gap in the state’s general fund. That’s a surprising and notable act of restraint. But it may be only temporary, since lawmakers’ reliance on $500 million in additional Medicaid help has proved ill-advised so far. This school budget is an achievement not in and of itself, but because it deviates from the awful prior practice at the Capitol. Lawmakers cleared a bar — but one practically resting on the ground.

I can assure area voters that when elected, Haddock will continue to work tirelessly to bring DHS into compliance with federal laws and to stop the endangerment of tens of millions of dollars in federal funds.

Shaughnessy backed

In the Aug. 3 primary, I am supporting Deb Shaughnessy to be Eaton County’s next state representative. I’d like to tell you why. Deb understands the importance of keeping the public safe by not releasing dangerous criminals as a way to save money in the corrections budget. As the former Grand Ledge chief of police, I find this issue important. I know Deb Shaughnessy will fight to make sure the governor and Legislature don’t put forth careless policies that may jeopardize the safety of our children. I have known Deb for many years and I admire her passion to serve and her strength to stand for what she believes. She is a person of high moral character and integrity and I have no doubt she will put the interests of the people ahead of partisan politics. I am so grateful Deb Shaughnessy is running for state representative and I hope you join me in voting for her on Aug. 3. Dave Burtch Grand Ledge

Like the candidates running for office, the LSJ is getting set for the primary election on Aug. 3. We have launched our Election Voter’s Guide, a feature we consider core to our public service mission. The guide, which is easily accessed from the election page, has Ingham, Clinton and Eaton County candidate responses to ques- MICHAEL tions about important state HIRTEN and local issues. For state office candidates Executive Editor — the Michigan House and Senate — there are questions 377-1076 about: w Tax reform. What they support and why. w School funding. What should be done? w Service sharing and consolidation. How should the state encourage this? w Transparency. Should legislative spending records be more open to the public? We ask judicial candidates about court efficiency; candidates for county and local offices have questions about the services they consider most vital to their communities. All are invited to explain why they are the most qualified people to hold the public offices they seek. We pose questions to candidates that we think you would ask. But you may have different thoughts or suggestions. If so, send them to me at and we can consider them as we revise the guide for the Nov. 2 general election. To date, a majority of the candidates running in the primary election has responded to survey questions and responses are continuing to arrive as the election nears. It’s in their interest. This is a very popular and useful online feature for voters. Traffic at as an election approaches can top 500,000 page views a day. The Voter’s Guide site also lists the ballot questions, usually millage votes for fire departments, libraries, bus systems and other local initiatives. The LSJ Editorial Board has been meeting with officials from organizations seeking millage renewals or millage increases and will have some endorsements later this month. Unlike in the general election, where the Editorial Board regularly endorses candidates, there are no individual endorsements slated for primary elections. There are simply too many candidates in these party races for our board to offer its views. On July 18, we will begin running profiles of the seven gubernatorial candidates. Also planned are stories about the local House and Senate races, judgeship races, analysis of campaign spending and more. Dozens of election-related articles are available now at and we’ll continue to add more through the election. One more piece of election housekeeping: We encourage letters to the editor dealing with candidates and issues. As is our practice, we expect to run all of the letters that you send (check the details on this page) as long as they arrive before 4:30 p.m. on Monday, July 26. We have this deadline to allow for verification of letters and placement in the LSJ by Aug. 1. We hope that our election coverage and the candidate material we have online help voters make informed choices at the polls. All elections are important. Polls tell us that people are dissatisfied with their governments. Votes in August and November can make a difference. What do you think? Write Mickey Hirten, Lansing State Journal, 120 E.

Antiwar liberals ignored Obama


JULY 11, 2010

Libraries are huge bargain for Ingham Co.

But perhaps the DICK unhappiest Americans these days are the antiwar liberal POLMAN Democrats who voted with is a columnist enthusiasm for Barack for the Obama, only to find him Philadelphia, tethered to a protracted war Pa., Inquirer. in a remote region that for two millennia has foiled virtually every foreign invader. Even Alexander the Great had to flee with an arrow in his leg. If George W. Bush were still in office and presiding over the same circumstances in Afghanistan — with Western allies such as Canada pulling out their troops; with U.S. casualties on the rise; with resilient insurgents bedeviling our forces; with a U.S. nation-building effort held hostage by a corrupt host government that lacks grassroots credibility; with a fungible withdrawal deadline; with the prospect of untold billions of dollars being poured into an openended occupation — you can bet that liberals would be vocally apoplectic. But with Obama on the hot seat, they’re stuck. Even though Obama is basically trapped in this unwinnable war, even though he’s using Bushspeak to talk about all the “progress” we’ve supposedly made

Los Angeles Times Syndicate

in Afghanistan, liberals don’t want to make his political life more miserable than it already is. So mostly they fume about their powerlessness. Actually, liberals have been relatively quiescent for a slew of reasons. For starters, they have the same war fatigue that afflicts most other Americans. Afghanistan (now officially the longest war in U.S. history) and Iraq are simply a drag to contemplate; it’s easier to just tune them out, to not even patronize the outpouring of movies that depict the pain. And it’s more fun to debate who should be dancing with the stars than whether we should be launching a spring or autumn offensive in Kandahar. The bottom line is that they’re locked into this war, just like Obama. For most of the past decade, and especially when Bush was fixated on Iraq, the liberal complaint was that America was rushing to avenge 9/11 by invading the wrong country. Liberals, eager to demonstrate that they, too, believed in the application of military force,

saw Afghanistan as the right place for a just war — a chance not merely to defeat al-Qaeda on the battlefield, but to bring humanitarian aid to people (especially the women) who suffered human-rights abuses at the hands of the Taliban. Indeed, candidate Obama was quite clear about his plans for a wider war in Afghanistan. For instance, during a CBS interview in July 2008, he said: “I think one of the biggest mistakes we’ve made strategically after 9/11 was to fail to finish the job (in Afghanistan), focus our attention there. We got distracted by Iraq.” He said, with respect to Afghanistan: “For at least a year now, I have called for two additional brigades, perhaps three” — in other words, as many as 15,000 new soldiers. And that autumn, during his first debate with John McCain, he said: “We have seen Afghanistan worsen, deteriorate. We need more troops there. We need more resources there.” Did liberals not hear what he was saying? MCT News Service

Current hours are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Service would be expanded to seven days per week, 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Weekend hours have not been determined, but probably will be eight to 12 hours per day. I will share some stats directly from EATRAN. In 2008, EATRAN maintained a fleet of 26 vehicles; the average bus carried 3.94 passengers per hour. Each bus brought in $6.08 per hour in revenue, but cost $55.51 per hour to run. That is a loss of $49.43 per hour for every bus that is operating. The passengers per vehicle mile is 0.2. EATRAN doesn’t even come close to averaging one passenger for each mile that the bus is driven. Total operating revenue

for fiscal 2007-08 was $265,931, and the operating expense was $2,427,505. Therefore it costs nine times more to run EATRAN than what is collected in fares. Let me simplify all these statistics in a way that makes sense to me. EATRAN has 10 to 20 passenger buses carrying slightly less than four people per hour. These four people per hour pay about $1.50 each, but cost $14 each to carry. I would not call EATRAN a very efficient transportation system. According to a January 2010 letter, EATRAN received American Reinvestment and Recovery Act funds to purchase three buses at a cost of $266,000. Two of them were 10-passenger buses that cost $76,000 each and one was a 20-passenger bus that cost $114,000. There was also a 2.5 percent increase in operating assistance to EATRAN ($60,625). In 2008, funding for EATRAN was broken down like this: 13 percent from fare boxes, 35 percent from county millage, 36 percent from state funds and 16 percent federal funds. That is a lot of effort for 0.2 riders per mile. On Aug. 3, voters of Eaton County are

This will cost taxpayers roughly $2 million. How will the expansion of this service that relatively few people use stimulate the economy? The schools don’t have enough money to operate. The state can’t come close to balancing the budget, and the U.S. has a $1 trillion annual budget deficit. Each bus carries 0.2 passengers per mile. Do you think that in this economy the best use of your tax money is to expand EATRAN? We have spent tens of millions on EATRAN over 30 years. It doesn’t need more money now. Vote no on Aug. 3.

A renewal of Support CADL, the operating millage for a group of the CADL system is on the library patrons Aug. 3 ballot. This is not a and supporters new tax or a tax increase, from communities in but simply a renewal of Ingham County. the 1.56 mill millage that expired on Dec. 31, 2009. Nearly 90 percent of CADL’s operation and maintenance is funded by citizens’ tax dollars through a millage. It is critical for residents to know that should the millage renewal not pass, all 13 CADL libraries and the bookmobile would close as of Jan. 3, 2011. They would remain closed until operational funding is approved by voters. Despite falling property values and a continuing loss of revenue, CADL has been a good steward of taxpayer dollars, maximizing every penny and doing more with less. And the materials and services they provide are more critical than ever. Residents of Ingham County are using CADL in record numbers. In 2009, CADL circulated more than 2.7 million items. More than 1.5 million people passed through the doors, and 1.3 million visited the website. Special library events drew 51,000 attendees. That same year, CADL’s wireless usage increased 256 percent and more than 284,000 hours of Internet access were provided. While a thriving library system is certainly a valuable community asset, its value also can be measured in terms of personal savings. CADL’s website features a value calculator ( calculator) that allows residents to determine their personal savings. For example, a family that in one month’s time checks out eight books, eight DVDs, one audiobook and one magazine, plus attends one children’s program and logs in four hours on library computers, has used $253 worth of library services. That adds up to more than $3,000 in one year. After including how much they pay in taxes, they receive a personal return on investment of $38.92 for every $1 in taxes they pay. I encourage you to plug in your own family’s numbers. I think you’ll be amazed at the savings you’ll see. For an Ingham County resident who owns a home with an assessed/taxable value of $50,000 (market value of $100,000), the cost of the 1.56 mills will be approximately $78 a year. These funds will not be used for any building or remodeling — local municipalities provide the facilities that house CADL locations. Instead, they will allow libraries to remain open and to continue providing a wide variety of high-quality materials, valuable support services, and a professional, caring staff. Libraries are the one place where knowledge and opportunity are available to all, regardless of means. For more information about CADL and this proposal, go to We are urging residents to vote “yes” on this critical issue.

Talk about it

This week’s question:

What priority do you put on maintaining state and local parks — and keeping them open for use — given the budget shortfalls facing the state, counties and local governments?




they shouldn’t come before basic services. I would vote to close some of our parks before taking money from state or municipal needs. These are I think the first question has to do with tough times, and there are going to be losses, but competition from nearby states. It seems to me that our public facilities are at least as good, if not spending money on parks while basic needs go unmet just doesn’t make sense to me. better than, say, Wisconsin. Suppose they were — Therese Dawe, Lansing worse. Who suffers? State residents who use these facilities, plus tourist-oriented businesses.

It would not be wise nor prudent to adversely impact that which may be our greatest strength. — Frederick Puffenberger, Portland

Let’s vote on the issue

While it is not the government’s responsibility to fund parks, we, as citizens, have entrusted our representatives with allocating our tax money, and most of us favor state-funded parks. Among other benefits, parks attract tourists, thus bringing revenue. The recent “park passport” legislation has made sure that Michigan residents aren’t paying more than non-residents between taxes and admission fees. Why not put it to a vote? They’re our taxes — and our parks. — Elizabeth Ashley Miller, Perry

families need to have an outlet where we can forget about the day-to-day. Parks are vital to our health and well-being. Let’s face it, without them I’m afraid we would see another increase in obesity and stress-related conditions. I would rather spend more to fund parks or job creation and less on corrections. — David Masur, Lansing

This is time for cuts

We have to cut back in every way possible. It seems many of parks are vastly under-utilized, yet it takes money to maintain them. There should probably be only a few parks in locations where most people will use them. The others should be converted to uses that make money or cost less. Governments funding under-utilized resources and failing to prioritize spending are no different than a person continuing to fund amenities he’s used to even though he’s been unemployed for the past eight years. —Randy Parlor, Lansing

Psychologists take stand against torture Group condemns abuse of a CIA detainee in 2002

their professional group not to take part in torturing detainees in U.S. custody. Now the American Psychological Association has taken the unprecedented step of supporting an attempt to strip ASSOCIATED PRESS the license of a psychologist accused of overseeing the torCOLUMBUS, Ohio — ture of a CIA detainee. Psychologists in the United The APA has told a TexStates have been warned by as licensing board in a let-

ter mailed July 1 that the allegations against Dr. James Mitchell represent “patently unethical” actions inconsistent with the organization’s ethics guidelines. APA spokeswoman Rhea Farberman confirmed the contents of the letter obtained by The Associated Press. The letter is the first of its kind in the board’s history, she said.

Mitchell is a retired Air Force psychologist who participated in the 2002 CIA interrogation of detainee Abu Zubaydah, according to a 2008 Senate Armed Services Committee report on the treatment of detainees in U.S. custody. Mitchell is not a member of the American Psychological Association. Interrogators in Thailand

subjected Zubaydah to severe cold, food and sleep deprivation, confinement in a narrow box and, with Mitchell participating, a simulated form of drowning known as waterboarding, according to the complaint filed with the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists. “Obviously, I’m not free to discuss any work I may

have done for the CIA,” Mitchell told the AP. He called Cox’s complaint libelous and said it is “riddled throughout with fabricated details, lies, distortions and inaccuracies.” Sherry Lee, the Texas board director, said complaints are shielded under Texas law and she could not comment.

Cleaning up: A 5.4 earthquake hit the area of Palm Springs, Calif., on Wednesday.

Increased quake activity predicted in Calif. RONG-GONG LIN II MCT News Service

LOS ANGELES — There is growing concern among seismologists that the 7.2 earthquake in Mexicali, Mexico, on April 4 placed more pressure on Southern California’s faults, resulting in increased quake activity over the last three months. The latest evidence was Wednesday’s magnitude 5.4 earthquake that rolled from the mountains south of Palm Springs, leaving no major damage but rattling nerves throughout the region. Wednesday’s quake was centered in the San Jacinto fault zone — Southern California’s most active — which runs 100 miles from the border northwesterly toward Riverside and San Bernardino.

No signs of ending

Scientists had warned for some time that the Mexicali quake had transferred pressure from the Mexican border area toward the San Jacinto fault and nearby Elsinore fault — which runs 110 miles and could cause major damage in urban areas — making quakes there more likely. “The probability of a larger earthquake on those faults could be high within the next year or two,” said John Rundle, a physics and geology professor at the University of California, Davis. Rundle said the aftermath of the Mexicali quake is turning out to be significantly different than the aftermath of the two other large quakes to hit Southern California in the last two decades. Both the 7.3 Landers quake in 1992 and the 7.1 Hector Mine quake in 1999 in the Mojave Desert resulted in aftershocks that dissipated relatively quickly. By contrast, the Mexicali quake has been followed by aftershocks and “triggered earthquakes” that are showing no signs of ending.

High activity

Experts are particularly concerned because the northern edges of the Elsinore and San Jacinto fault zones line up, respectively, near the Whittier fault, which runs into Orange and Los Angeles counties, and the San Andreas fault. Both faults could produce catastrophic quakes. Smaller earthquakes continue at an unexpectedly high level far north of the Mexicali quake in Southern California’s Inland Empire. “Under normal circumstances, you have a rather rapid die-off of activity after an earthquake. But in this case, the activity seems to be motoring along at a fairly high level,” Rundle said.

2 Hungarian boat crash victims remembered

Students drown after duck boat capsizes in Pa.

Memorial service: Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter apologized to the survivors on behalf of his city, where two Hungarian students died in a collision between a tourist boat and a barge Wednesday on the Delaware River.

GEOFF MULVIHILL Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Friends silently and solemnly dropped white roses into the Delaware River on Saturday in memory of the two Hungarian students who died when the amphibious tourist boat they were riding was struck by a barge and sank. City officials, religious leaders and Hungarian diplomats joined a group of grieving Hungarian exchange students at a memorial service dedicated to 20-year-old Szabolcs Prem and 16-year-old Dora Schwendtner, who drowned after the duck boat capsized Wednesday. “The loss of a young life, of two young lives, is almost impossible to understand and almost impossible to accept,” said Bela Szombati, the Hungarian ambassador to the United States. “We stand with you, we stand with the children, the young people.” At the end of the ceremony, wreaths and flowers were dropped into the river and a pair of doves were released. Both bodies were recovered from the river Friday and identified based on their personal effects, said Jeff Moran, spokesman for the Philadelphia medical examiner’s office.

the duck boat were rescued from the river. Eleven of the survivors were Hungarian students. Two Hungarian teachers and seven Americans who were touring with them also survived. The National Transportation Safety Board sent a team of 10 investigators to Philadelphia to piece together how the crash occurred. They say the duck boat’s captain shut off the engine and dropped its anchor after smoke billowed from the vessel. The boat was stopped in the water for five to 10 minutes before the barge, being pushed by a tugboat, struck it. It capsized within seconds. Among the issues to sort out: whether the tugboat crew heard distress calls that the duck boat crew says it made, and why an air horn on the smaller vessel apparently failed.

Was woman a spy or betrayed wife? Couple deported in spy swap, leaving children behind

Pelaez’s lawyer said his client “seemed shocked” to learn that Juan Lazaro was not her husband’s real name. “I don’t believe she knew he had another name,” he said.


In Yonkers, a gaggle of journalists was parked outside the family’s two-story, brick and stucco home, with a patio, dog house and wading pool in the yard, waiting to talk to the couple’s 17-year-old son, Juan Jr., and his stepbrother Waldo Mariscal, 38, an architect. “I guess I feel sorry for the younger kid, unless he was in on it,” remarked a neighbor, Jim Carey. “We don’t really know if he knew anything.” As for the parents: “They have to live with what they did,” he said. Before noon, the two sons escaped, grim-faced, to a nearby park.

When they returned, Mariscal spoke to the media, insisting he didn’t believe his parents were spies, and defending their character. “I don’t know about Juan’s relationship to Russia. He probably bought some seasoning from a Russian store,” Mariscal said. As for his mother: “The only Russian thing that she likes is vodka with passion fruit.” He said he didn’t know where he and his brother would end up living, though he said the teenager wanted to stay in the United States. He acknowledged the family would lose their home, since it was paid for by the Russians, but added: “My parents paid this house with their sacrifices since 1995.” A lawyer for the father noted that the sons had no income. “It’s very upsetting. They don’t know what to do next,” Genesis Peduto said.

Hours to decide fate As for their parents, they had only 24 hours to decide whether to accept the “all-or-nothing” deal to go to Moscow or face years behind bars, said Pelaez’s lawyer, John Rodriguez. He said Pelaez plans to go back to Peru, where her family has a ranch, and where she hoped to continue writing for El Diario La Prensa, a well-known Spanish-language newspaper. It was in Lima, the Peruvian capital, that the couple met in the early 1980s. The country was in turmoil, with leftist rebels ascendant. Vicky was working for Channel 2, Frecuencia Latina. The man she knew as Juan Lazaro was not only a talented freelance photographer but a karate black belt who taught the

‘Live with what they did’

SETH WENIG/Associated Press

Family torn apart: Waldo Mariscal (left) and his half-brother Juan Lazaro Jr., sons of accused spy Vicky Pelaez, leave their home in Yonkers, N.Y.


YONKERS, N.Y. — Vicky Pelaez met her husband, Juan Lazaro — or so he called himself — some 30 years ago in her native Peru. She was a gutsy TV reporter, he a talented photographer and a karate black belt. Soon, the two were married and living in a leafy New York suburb, raising a young son along with Vicky’s older one, proudly watching him develop into a talented pianist. And now, three decades later, with the family suddenly torn asunder, her lawyer says she likely never even knew Juan’s real name: Mikhail Vasenkov. It’s one of the more tantalizing mysteries to emerge from the spy saga Pelaez that has entranced the world over the past 12 days: Could a wife be in the dark even as to her husband’s very name? And the broader question: Was Pelaez, deported Thursday in a spy swap along with her husband, an enthusiastic secret agent — who like him, was willing to put her loyalty to Moscow over that of her children? Or was she a wife betrayed? One thing was clear on Friday, hours after Pelaez, 55, and Vasenkov, 66, arrived in Vienna, en route to Moscow: A family was in tatters.

Bipartisan push aims to raise retirement age MCT News Service

WASHINGTON — Young Americans might not get full Social Security retirement benefits until they reach age 70 if some trial balloons that prominent lawmakers of both parties are floating become law. No one who’s slated to receive benefits in the next decade or two is likely to be affected, but there’s a gentle, growing and unusually bipartisan push to raise the retirement age for full Social Security benefits for people born in the 1960s and after. The suggestions are being taken seriously after de-

Today the full Social Security benefit retirement age is 66 for people born from 1943 to 1954. It then increases by two months for each birth year (66 years and two months for those born in 1955, 66 and four months for those born in 1956 and so forth), until those born in 1960 or later get full benefits at age 67.

Coming health care changes you may not know about MCT NEWS SERVICE

WASHINGTON — Several little-known provisions of the new health care overhaul law take effect in coming months that could have a lasting impact on the nation’s health-care system. They include eliminating co-payments for certain preventive services such as mammograms, giving the government more power to review health insurers’ premium increases and allowing states to expand Medicaid coverage to low-income adults without children. Here’s a quick look at some of the changes that are occurring this year:

Prevention for less

What: Insurers won’t be able to require co-payments or deductibles for certain preventive services such as breast cancer screenings every one to two years, cholesterol blood tests and screenings for some sexually transmitted diseases. Insurers also will have to cover recommended immunizations at no cost to patients. Some health care analysts have suggested that premiums may rise as a result of this and other new requirements, but administration officials say that any increase in premiums would be minuscule. When: The change takes effect Sept. 23, which means it applies to plan years that begin after that. For many plans, their new years begin after Jan. 1. Status: The Department of Health and Human Services says regulations are on their way.

tirement age makes a lot of sense,” said Richard Johnson, a senior fellow and the director of the Retirement Policy Program at the Urban Institute, a Washington research group. Still, there are potential downsides. “There are some incredible ramifications to raising the age,” said Barbara Kennelly, the president of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and

Medicare. “Not everyone can work until they’re 70.” Despite such concerns, the trial balloons are firmly anchored. Last month, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., launched his in a major address to a Washington budget conference.

Stronger safety net

“We’re lying to ourselves and our children if we say we can maintain our current levels of entitlement spending, defense spending and taxation without bankrupting our country,” Hoyer said. “We could and should consider a higher retirement age or one pegged to life span, more progressive Social Security and Medicare benefits, and a stronger safety net for the Americans who need it most.” Soon after, House Republican leader John Boehner

of Ohio told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the age “eventually” could be raised to 70. “Raising the retirement age — going out 20 years and not affecting anyone close to retirement, and eventually getting the retirement age to 70 — is a step that needs to be taken,” he said. “I think it’s time we have an adult conversation about the problems facing this country,” Boehner added later to Fox News. “Clearly, when it comes to Social Security, there’s a problem.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., wouldn’t rule out the option. Hoyer “made a very important statement about putting everything on the table,” she said, “subjecting everything to scrutiny when it comes time to figuring out how we lower the deficit in a very transformational way.”

More political prisoners to be released in Cuba HAVANA — Cuban church officials on Saturday released the names of 12 more political prisoners who will be freed and sent into exile in the coming days under a landmark agreement with President Raul Castro’s government, bringing to 17 the total number of jailed dissidents who have accepted asylum in Spain. While there has been no word on when exactly the men will be freed, there are growing signs that a release could be imminent, with the wife of one prisoner saying Cuban officials told her to prepare to leave the country. “They (Cuban officials) called me to tell me to get ready to leave, because they would be around to get us,” said Barbara Rojo, the wife of prisoner Omar Ruiz.

Another prisoner, Jose Luis Garcia, was being moved from a jail in Las Tunas to Havana, said his mother, Moralinda Paneque. The 17 are among a group of 52 opposition leaders, journalists and activists who remain in jail following a broad crackdown on dissent in 2003 that resulted in lengthy prison terms on treason and other charges. The government agreed to release them after a meeting Wednesday between Castro and Roman Catholic Cardinal Jaime Ortega. The Church has taken an increasingly public role in relations between the government and the opposition since the death of a jailed dissident hunger striker in February. The meeting was brokered by visiting Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos.

Fans approve: Philadelphians packed Dilworth Plaza on Friday to celebrate the 50th anniversary of “The Twist.”


Chubby Checker leaped into legend with iconic dance moves, song CHUCK DARROW MCT News Service

PHILADELPHIA — Albert Ellis was universally regarded as one of the two or three most influential psychotherapists of the 20th century. But it seems he wasn’t quite as sharp when it came to popculture prognostication. In his 1995 book “The Twist: The Story of the Song and Dance That Changed the World,” author Jim Dawson quotes the august shrink as opining, at the height of the dance’s early-1960s popularity, “As it stands, I think it’s a fad and a fleeting one. In two years, it will be forgotten.” Yeah, right. You only had to be at Philadelphia City Hall’s Dilworth Plaza on Friday to see how badly the esteemed Dr. Ellis blew it. That’s where throngs of Philadelphians helped Chubby Checker celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of his version of the song that indeed “changed the world.” “The Twist” — the hipswiveling, pelvis-thrusting dance and the iconic song the old Parkway record label recorded with Checker, then an 18-year-old former chicken plucker from South Philly — remains a pop-culture touchstone.

Dance a staple

From weddings in the Pacific Northwest to bar mitzvahs in Miami, the Twist is a staple, along with countless other dances that, to this day, are the stylistic offspring of the mother of all rock ‘n’ roll choreography. “It was the beginning of people dancing ... by themselves with someone else, the first time people danced apart from the beat,” recalled Checker, 68, during a recent phone chat occasioned by the 50th anniversary of the July 9, 1960, release of his take on “The

PHOENIX — A seventh challenge filed to block enforcement of Arizona’s tough new immigration is the first legal objection to training materials designed to teach police officers how to enforce the law. The lawsuit, filed Friday in federal court, says the training materials are “so vague and ill-defined that they will certainly lead to widespread racial profiling and discrimination.” Among the materials is a video released July 1 that

warns officers not to use race or ethnicity when enforcing the new law, but tells them they’re allowed to consider whether a person speaks poor English, looks nervous or is traveling in an overcrowded vehicle. They can even take into account whether someone is wearing several layers of clothing in a hot climate, or hanging out in an area where illegal immigrants are known to look for work. Those who filed the lawsuit objecting to the training materials, including the

League of United Latin American Citizens, argue that immigrants who are already known to federal authorities and who have petitions to legalize their status will be subject to arrest because they don’t have the specific documents the new law requires. The law, set to go into effect July 29 pending the legal challenges, requires police investigating another incident or crime to ask people about their immigration status if there’s a “reasonable suspicion” they’re in the country illegally.

Libertarian-rooted movement could influence Michigan races TODD SPANGLER


Detroit Free Press

In Sault Ste. Marie, the tea partiers meet Wednesdays at Cup of the Day on Ashmun Street. Looks nice enough from the outside, but Tom Stillings — a Republican candidate for Michigan’s 1st Congressional seat — says it’s like facing the Spanish Inquisition in there. It’s easy to see why. When the members of the Northern Michigan Liberty Alliance start asking questions, they mean business: Which laws is the candidate prepared to get rid of? Which government agencies would go? Should people be allowed to carry a gun in church? And under what constitutional authority does the federal government pursue the war on drugs? “They’re very tough,” Stillings said.

Election impact

With the Aug. 3 primaries looming, candidates, consultants and pundits are wondering what effect groups such as the Northern Michigan Liberty Alliance, the Holland-Zeeland Patriots and the Southeast Michigan 9.12 Project — tea parties, for short — will have. Despite modest numbers, lack of funds and inability in most cases to make endorsements, their free market/small government/ keep-your-hands-off-mymoney-and-guns message has had results.


Bill Ballenger

In Colorado, tea partiers toppled incumbent Sen. Bob Bennett for supporting the Wall Street relief bill; in Nevada, they put Sharron Angle in the fall race against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Their governor picks won primaries in Maine and South Carolina. As for Michigan, “there are a couple of races where they could have an impact,” said Bill Ballenger, publisher of the Lansing-based Inside Michigan Politics newsletter.

The Pure Michigan ads caught her attention with their simplicity and imagery. “They were terrific ads,” she said. “A picture is worth a thousand words — it, visually, was just beautiful and captured your imagination.” Pure Michigan, the state’s awardwinning tourism promotion campaign, is touted by the tourism industry as a vital investment in attracting people — and their money — to the economically troubled state. That is why tourism officials are so keen on keeping the campaign funded despite its budget being cut nearly in half from last year.

Struggling states seek more federal aid On the Web

Some governors say states need help to recover LIZ SIDOTI Associated Press

BOSTON — Governors hamstrung by the sluggish economic rebound in their states and bound to balance their own budgets are pressing anew for Washington to step up with more help, some say even if it means adding to the nation’s red ink. Republicans and Democrats alike wrestled with how to capitalize on a fledgling rebound as they talked dollars and sense at their summer meeting just days into a new budget year and as the economy shapes dozens of gubernatorial races across the country. “All states still are facing tough fiscal situations even though I do believe we’re in recovery,” said West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin, a Democrat who’s taking over as chairman of the National Governors Association. Added Gov. Jim Douglas, R-Vt., the outgoing chairman: “Governors have done what is necessary to get through this” — repeatedly cutting budgets, restructuring government, laying off workers

MICHAEL DWYER/Associated Press

Needing help: Governors, including Mississippi’s Haley Barbour (right) and New Mexico’s Bill Richardson, were in Boston to discuss issues such as the economy, health care and education. and draining rainy day funds.

Worth long-term pain?

But both men said states can’t continue to climb out of the recession alone, and the NGA renewed its bipartisan appeal for Congress to pass stalled jobs legislation that includes billions of dollars in aid to states. Just days before the new budget year began July 1, the House and Senate failed to complete legislation that wouldhaveextended,through June 2011, important parts of

the federal stimulus program enacted last year to provide unemployment insurance and help offset recession-driven cuts to education, health care and public safety. The measure offered $35.5 billion for unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless and $16 billion for Medicaid, the public health care program for the poor. It also would have added an estimated $33 billion to the deficit.

Even so, several Democratic governors suggested in interviews and during panel discussions that the short-term gain was worth the long-term pain. But some Republican governors were more tentative in their support, suggesting any aid should be offset by paying for it from other areas of the budget.

Tourism: Experts expect more visitors this year CONTINUED FROM 3A

Social media = free marketing

The tourism industry it is becoming increasingly savvy with reaching out to its audience with new technology, including social media, according to those tied to the campaigns. That could be a saving grace, said George Zimmermann, vice president for Travel Michigan in the Michigan Economic Development Corp. The Facebook page for Pure Michigan attracts about 500 to 1,000 new fans every day, he said, and potential visitors are more likely to believe good hype coming from fellow travelers rather than a promotional campaign. The Pure Michigan website,, is the most visited state tourism website in the country, and Zimmerman said thousands have been writing from all over the country to say they like the Pure Michigan campaign.

Dan Musser III, president of the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, said Pure Michigan has helped the hotel attract more outof-state residents. “These ads that they are running right now — there’s no doubt that they’re the best we’ve ever had,” he said. The Grand Hotel had a 15 percent increase in out-of-state visitors last year over 2008, Musser said. Those numbers led to a milestone this year in the hotel’s more than 100-year history. “For the first time, we had more out-of-state guests than in-state guests for the Fourth of July weekend,” Musser said. “If our booking pace continues with what we’ve seen for the past six weeks, we should be doing really well this summer and see a little bit of a gain.” Statewide, tourism in 2009 was down, as expected given the high unemployment rates and high gas prices, but outlooks are brighter for 2010. Experts predict a 2 percent to 3 percent increase in tourism prices — the amount people have to pay to travel, including such things as gas and lodging prices; a 2 percent to 3 percent increase in volume — the number of people traveling in the state; and a 3 percent to 4 percent increase in spending.

Politics: Groups want to see a more conservative GOP CONTINUED FROM 3A

Cooper won an endorsement from the tea partylinked Independence Caucus and could use it to split a seven-man ticket. Even the governor’s race could be affected. It all depends on whether the tea party adherents — many new to political activism and suspicious about synchronized moves — get behind single candidates. If not, ticket splitting could blunt their impact. “How effective are they? We really don’t know,” Ballenger said. The tea party’s roots lie in libertarian politics, strict constitutional constructionism and a belief that in recent years — particularly since Democrats took control of Congress in 2007 and Barack Obama was elected president in 2008 — that

government has run amok. “The representatives we have now in Congress are not listening,” said Don Jakel of Caledonia, treasurer of the Tea Party of West Michigan — which includes dozens of smaller groups — and Michigan organizer for the Independence Caucus, a national group that interviews candidates then puts their videos online for people to vote for their favorites, which the group then endorses. As a rule, many tea party groups fall under a section of the federal tax code that keeps them from making specific endorsements.

2009 beginnings

Much of the impetus for the movement grew out of CNBC host Rick Santelli’s February 2009 rant over Obama’s stimulus plan. But it is lost on few self-proclaimed tea partiers that the hated Troubled Asset

“My hope is that the tea party people take over the GOP to a great degree.” Chad Stevens

of the Northern Michigan Liberty Alliance

Relief Program, or TARP, that provided rescue funds for Wall Street, General Motors Co. and Chrysler Group LLC was proposed by Republican George W. Bush’s administration. Republicans nationwide have been targeted for defeat for supporting TARP, and tea party organizers say they plan to participate largely in Republican primaries, not only backing candidates of their choice but running as precinct delegates. Their goal, they say, is to wean the party of more moderate influences. “My hope is that the tea party people take over the GOP to a great degree,” said Chad Stevens, with the Northern Mich-

igan Liberty Alliance. A sidenote: In pushing the GOP toward more conservative stands on constitutional and economic issues, the tea party movement is not necessarily in snyc with cultural conservatives — another huge Republican constituency — whose defining issues are opposition to abortion, stem cell research and gay marriage.

Governor’s race

Michigan’steapartygroups could affect dozens of local races, as well as those for the state Legislature. Making an impact in Michigan’s gubernatorial

race will be harder, but the enthusiasm of newly minted political activists could help pick a Republican nominee and the field knows it. Attorney General Mike Cox, U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra and Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard all have courted the tea party vote. And even though venture capitalist Rick Snyder is seen by some as the most moderate of the group, his business success and his status as the only nonpolitician helps him, Ballenger said. But the tea party’s real success in Michigan may come in congressional races, like the one Stillings hopes to win and those in western Michigan in which the Republican nomination is tantamount to a general election victory. Open seats in the 2nd and 3rd districts — along Lake Michigan’s coastline and in

and around Grand Rapids — have led to crowded GOP fields for the primaries; if the tea party groups come behind one candidate it could make a difference.

Upton’s race

Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, of St. Joseph, is facing a challenge in his own party from former state legislator Jack Hoogendyk, who is counting on tea partiers to reject Upton after 11 terms for his vote for TARP and a record that ranks him as one of the more moderate members of the state’s congressional delegation. Bill Nowling, a spokesman for Republicans in the state House, doesn’t see Upton losing — his constituent service has been strong and he’s a real presence in the district. “Guys like that, I don’t care what the environment, they don’t lose,” Nowling said.

Cannabis caravans shut down by advocacy group Group teaming up with caregivers to still offer service ASSOCIATED PRESS

HELENA, Mont. — A Montana advocacy group is shutting down its traveling medical marijuana clinics amid criticism that the so-called cannabis caravans have added thousands of people to the state registry without conducting thor-

ough patient screenings. The Montana Caregviers Network has hosted the oneday clinics in hotels and conference centers across Montana for more than a year. For a $150 fee, the group brought together those seeking to become medical marijuana patients with doctors willing to prescribe pot. Starting next week, the group will forgo the clinics and instead team up with medical marijuana distributors — called caregivers in Montana — to provide regular doctor’s office hours in

“It’s being changed partially because of the criticism of the traveling clinics. Also, from the business end, it’s no longer sustainable.” Chris Arneson

group spokesman

Billings, Bozeman and Helena, in addition to the group’s base in Missoula. “It is being changed partially because of the criticism of the traveling clinics. Also, from the business end, it’s no longer sustainable,” group spokesman

Chris Arneson said. The clinics were a major factor in Montana’s medical marijuana patient registry jumping from 842 people at the end of 2008 to just about 20,000 at the end of June. The clinics also have helped the Montana Caregivers Net-

work make more than $1 million in the past year, according to founder Jason Christ. Over the past few months, the clinics have come under criticism as being assembly lines that sees hundreds of people at a time, but at the expense of proper medical examinations. The group’s new model seeks to establish hubs in the state’s largest cities that will service both new patients and renewing ones. The Montana Caregivers Network has a doctor who now works full time with the

group in Missoula. He will go to Billings, Bozeman and Helena once a week to provide recommendations for new patients and for current ones seeking to renew their oneyear eligibility, Arneson said. The doctor will spend as much time as necessary with each patient, and the organization will not set a quota or limit the number of patients that can be seen in a day, Arneson said. The Montana Caregivers Network will still handle the records and still charge $150 per recommendation.

Veterans to receive more post-traumatic stress help Providing aid ‘long overdue,’ Obama says

his weekly radio and online address Saturday. The new rules will apply not only to veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, but also those who served in previous conflicts. No longer will veterans have to prove what caused their illness. Instead, they would have to show that Obama the conditions surrounding the time and place of their service could have contributed to their illness. Veterans advocates and some lawmakers have argued that it sometimes could be impossible for veterans to find records of a firefight or bomb blast.


WASHINGTON — The government is taking what President Barack Obama calls “a long overdue step” to aid veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, making it easier for them receive federal benefits. The changes that Veteran Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki will announce Monday fulfill “a solemn responsibility to provide our veterans and wounded warriors with the care and benefits they’ve earned when they come home,” Obama said in

They also have contended that the old rules ignored other causes of PTSD, such as fearing a traumatic event even if it doesn’t occur. That could discriminate against female troops prohibited from serving on front lines and against other service members who don’t experience combat directly. “This is a long overdue step,” Obama said. “It’s a step that proves America will always be here for our veterans, just as they’ve been there for us. We won’t let them down. We take care of our own.” A study last year by the RAND Corp. think tank estimated that nearly 20 percent of returning veterans, or 300,000, have symptoms of PTSD or major depression.

Granholm touts Habitat for Humanity Governor hopes to boost volunteerism amid economic, housing market crises COREY WILLIAMS Associated Press

DETROIT — Nail gun in hand, Gov. Jennifer Granholm was determined to install baseboards in the wood frame house on Detroit’s east side. Outside, husband Dan Mulhern wiped away sweat while putting up vinyl siding in stifling

90-degree heat. With tens of thousands of Michigan families losing homes to foreclosure during the mortgage swoon and economic collapse, Michigan’s first family hopes a unique reunion idea with Habitat for Humanity catches on across the state. About 45 members of Mulhern’s family — many with ties to Detroit


— have volunteered a few weeks this summer to build a home on Maryland Street. Granholm is filling out the final months of her second and final term. She and Mulhern are counting on their cheerleading to get volunteers to Granholm do what a state without money can’t — assist struggling families who have lost so much. “You can either sit back and com-

plain, or you can contribute to the solution,” the Democratic governor said Thursday morning outside the nearly complete 4-bedroom house. “Across the state there are communities that have the same pull for other families. In tough times, citizens in Michigan know how to rally. This is a rally moment, an opportunity.” Habitat for Humanity expects to build about 20 new houses in Detroit this year, and 200 across the state. Mulhern’s family learned about the build on Maryland and

“We want to seed into young people a love of aviation.”

Bernero endorsed by two Democrats in U.S. House

Tom Schroeder, pilot from Laingsburg

DETROIT — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Virg Bernero has picked up the endorsements of two members of Michigan’s congressional delegation. U.S. Reps. John Conyers and Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick threw their support Saturday to Bernero, who also collected the endorsements of about 30 of Detroit’s elected officials, community, labor and religious leaders. In their endorsements, Conyers and Cheeks Kilpatrick both said Bernero has the right vision and passion for bringing jobs back to Michigan. The Lansing mayor faces Democratic rival Andy Dillon in the contest for the party’s gubernatorial nomination. The two candidates are trying to woo voters in Detroit, which is a stronghold for Democratic votes.

Business up for some after smoking ban

BLOOMFIELD HILLS — The owners of hypnotherapy and acupuncture clinics in the Detroit metropolitan area say they’ve seen an increase in business in the two months since Michigan banned smoking in bars and restaurants. Since the state’s ban took effect May 1, Michigan’s smokers have had to get their cigarette fix outside establishments that once welcomed them. Some smokers successfully use nicotine patches, gum and will power to end their addiction, but others have found such methods ineffective. Fran Kulwicki, 62, of Sterling Heights said she tried to quit on her own several times since adopting the habit as a teenager, but nothing worked until she tried hypnotherapy last month. In therapy, she learned to substitute a glass of cold water for her nicotine cravings, and now the desire is gone. “I don’t want to smoke anymore,” she said. “I don’t need to.” At Focused Solutions Hypnotherapy in Bloomfield Hills, owner Kim Manning says business has risen about 20 percent since the ban took effect. — From wire reports

Jobs, Justice and Peace to kick off in Detroit

DETROIT — United Auto Workers president Bob King and the Rev. Jesse Jackson are kicking off a new campaign in Detroit that will focus on job creation, manufacturing, workers’ rights and peace. King and Jackson are expected to announce details Monday of the Jobs, Justice and Peace initiative and take part in a march next month in Detroit. The effort is expected to call on national leaders to enact industrial and trade policies that will create jobs, enforce laws protecting worker and civil rights, and create fair educational, economic and health policies. The campaign also calls for a moratorium on home foreclosure practices. The Aug. 28 march will commemorate one led in Detroit in 1963 by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

jumped at the chance to help. “We were just tired of the whining and the finger-pointing and the ‘poor, pitiful us,’” he said, referring to complaints across Michigan. “We wanted to make a difference.” The nonprofit Habitat for Humanity has built 3,000 homes in Michigan since 1982, and 457 since the start of 2008. The new homeowners are required to put in “sweat equity” and help volunteers in the building process.

Aviation Days event aims to give kids a bite from the flying bug KRIS TURNER


All smiles: Amanda Ingalls is all smiles after her flight Saturday as pilot Pat Salow removes her earphones at Mason Jewett Field. The ride was part of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Young Eagles Aviation Days event in Mason.

ASON — The roar of airplane engines filled the grassy area of Mason Jewett Field on Saturday. Eager children waited their turns to board one of 14 planes and take a 20-minute flight to Leslie and back. The idea behind Online the Experimental Extra Aircraft AssociaFor more tion’s Young Eagles Aviation Days photos, visit is to expose youth to the world of flight, said Bill Purosky, vice president of the association. “The number of pilots in the United States is dwindling and has gone down in the past couple years,” the 69-year-old Haslett resident said, adding that pilots are harder to come by today. Hopping out of a plane with his dad, 8-year-old Keegan Sabrosky of Mason said he wanted to come check out the scene. Keegan’s dad, Tom Sabrosky, said he heard about the opportunity from a customer whose hair he cut at Shear Spirit Hair and Nail Salon in Mason. “I wanted to see the airplanes,

and I wanted to go up,” said Keegan, who said he might want to be a pilot someday. About 120 children came to the event and got the chance to see the area from up above, Purosky said. Tom Schroeder, who took Keegan and his dad for a ride, said he feels it is important to help educate and engage children and teens in the world of aviation.

Schroeder said he was bit by the flying bug as a kid. “I kind of grew up in a flying family and fell in love with the view from the air,” the 56-year-old Laingsburg resident said. That love is something Schroeder said he’s going to pass on to any young person who is interested in taking up flying. “We want to seed into young people a love of aviation,” he said.

More than 100 varieties of wine flowed Saturday for attendees of the first Lansing Taste of Downtown. Hundreds of people sampled food and wine from 15 downtown restaurants in an event designed to spur the district’s revitalization. “It’s just a chance to come out, have fun and explore downtown,” said Sara Pawloski, communications and marketing manager for the Lansing Principal Online Shopping DisExtra trict, which organized the event. For more South Wash- photos, visit ington Square was closed between Michigan Avenue and Allegan Street to accommodate a stage for live bands — Third Coast Steel and Soulstice played throughout the afternoon — and two tents lined with volunteers who dished out small food samples and poured wine. “Businesses came to us and expressed that they would like to do a new downtown event, and area people had said it would be cool to have a tasting event,” Pawloski said. “This is what it evolved into.” For Lansing residents who volunteered and attended, the event was an opportunity to sup-

Moving from Lake Odessa at age 10, she resided in Lansing most of her life. She graduated from J.W. Sexton High School in 1943. After attending the University of Michigan for two years, she graduated Michigan State University as a medical technologist in 1947. Upon graduation she joined the laboratory team at the Michigan Department of Health, where she became head of the tetanus laboratory. After leaving there to raise her family, she returned several times to work in the diagnostic division. While at home, she joined several volunteer groups including the Junior League of Lansing, where she became chairman of the Thrift Shop, and worked for the Sparrow Hospital Women’s Service Auxiliary.

Most of her work was done under the tutelage of department chair, Dr. Bruce Walker. In 1972, JoAnn left the medical field and with her husband, built and operated a gift shop in Roscommon, MI. for eight years. After selling their shop, they returned to Lansing and formed a wholesale jewelry representative company. They continued this operation until retirement.

TV show spotlights pawn shop in Detroit KATHERINE YUNG Detroit Free Press

DETROIT — Starting Aug. 16, Detroit’s own Les Gold and his family, the owners of American Jewelry and Loan on the city’s northwest side, will be the stars of a new reality show on TruTV called “Hardcore Pawn.” It will compete on Monday nights with “Pawn Stars,” the hit History Channel show featuring the Harrison family of Las Vegas and its Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. Four months of filming for the new eight-episode series wrapped up last week. “The show is about a real pawnshop in a real city,” Gold said. “There is nothing made up.” TruTV ran two pilot episodes of “Hardcore Pawn” in December. They proved so successful that the Turner Broadcasting System channel gave the green light to produce a series. Like “Pawn Stars,” “Hardcore Pawn” will focus on Gold’s family. But the customers that frequent his store are likely to be every bit as entertaining. The series “shows Detroit as it actually is,” Gold said. If “Hardcore Pawn” becomes a hit when it debuts Aug. 16 on TruTV, tourists and others could soon be flocking to American Jewelry and Loan’s 50,000-squarefoot facility on Greenfield Road in Detroit. After all, there’s a precedent for this kind of marketing bonanza. Tourists regularly descend on the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas that’s featured on the popular History Channel show “Pawn Stars,” buying up hundreds of T-shirts and hats.

Taste: Event showcases downtown dining options

port downtown businesses and meet neighbors. Joellen Akin, a 48-year-old Lansing resident, wrapped pink wristbands on people as they paid their $15 to access the event. “I like to help promote downtown, and it looked like a chance to get to meet people,” she said. The event also drew in people from out-of-town. Katie Maloney, a 35-yearold Grand Ledge resident, noticed a sign for the event as she was eating lunch downtown one day. It sparked her curiosity, so she decided to explore the offerings Saturday with friend Stephanie Black, a 29-yearold Lansing resident. “We’re still trying to figure out what the catch is,” Maloney said. “It seems a little too good to be true that

Riley has overseen the digitization and indexing of the 1870 Michigan Census, helped build the Library of Michigan’s family history collection into one of the premier resources of its kind in the U.S. and presented hundreds of workshops and programs for librarians, genealogists, and local historians. “Librarians play such a crucial role for constituents at all stages of family histo- Riley ry research,” said Lynda Suffridge, vice president and chair of the awards committee. “Randy’s work certainly reflects the spirit of the Filby Award, which was created to honor librarians who have done the most to help us find our roots.” The award has been sponsored by ProQuest since 2006. Established in 1999, it is named for the late P. William Filby, former director of the Maryland Historical Society and author of many core genealogical reference tools that genealogists have relied on for decades. The award is presented to a librarian at a public, academic, or special library whose full-time primary focus is in genealogy and local history. Riley’s accomplishments include overseeing the integration of online and paper version of the Cemetery Source Books for the state of Michigan; creation of a genealogical database on the statewide Michigan eLibrary system; and supervision of the digitization, indexing and publishing of some 1 million death certificates for the Seeking Michigan website. Riley is editor of the Michigan Genealogist newsletter and is a Michigan Genealogical Council adviser.

Riddle Elementary and the English Language Acquisition Center want to express our heartfelt thanks to Michael Borek and the West Saginaw Meijer store. Once again, he has come to the rescue of many fourth-graders who would not have been able to participate in a three-day experience at Camp Ebersole in Wayland. Many of our students are from refugee camps around the world so the ability to come up with the camp fees was not favorable at all. Because of his support, students spent three days camping, studying, fishing, singing, swimming, making crafts, and practicing archery. This experience will stay with them for the rest of their lives. His financial support from the store is greatly appreciated. It truly does take an entire village to raise a child. The West Saginaw Meijer store is a vital part of our village and we can’t thank them enough. — Betty Javoroski, Riddle/ELAC Elementary, Lansing

Habitat: First family lends a hand CONTINUED FROM 3B

Its Habitat for Humanity Michigan Fund provides mortgages for independently run member offices across the state at a reasonable monthly fee, spokeswoman Debra Lashbrook said. The fund is servicing 1,059 home loans with a value of approximately $46 million. “We’re one of maybe a handful of homebuilders still operating in Michigan,” said Vincent Tilford, Habitat’s executive director in Detroit.

Need growing

Michigan’s 13.6 percent May jobless rate was near the top in the nation. Last year, 285,600 jobs disappeared. “What you have are families who may have been lower-middle income or middle income,” Tilford said. “They’ve lost jobs. They’ve taken jobs that pay less and have now fallen down into

the ranks of the low income and they’re losing homes.” Since Jan. 1, there have been about 94,800 new foreclosure filings in Michigan, according to RealtyTrac. There were more than 20,000 in May alone.

A new start

The 1,200-square-foot house Granholm, Mulhern and his family are helping to build will be Kenyatta Lewis’ first home. The 34-yearold U.S. Census survey clerk now lives with her father in Southfield after moving back to Michigan from Arkansas. “I’ve had to do 250 sweat hours” as part of Habitat’s program, Lewis said. “We’ve worked on about eight different homes.” Michigan’s first family also has raised about $15,000 in donations for Habitat for Humanity, said Christine Bitonti, Mulhern’s cousin and coordinator of MI Family Builds.

dam Lambert, Ludacris, Bret Michaels, Buckcherry, Alice Cooper and Gregg Rolie are among the acts slated to take the main-stage when the 11th annual Common Ground Music Festival kicks off Monday. They’ll be cheered by thousands of music fans, some who traveled far and wide for the fest. “We’ve had people from Canada and the UK come in for Common Ground,” says Amanda Snook, marketing manager for the Lansing Entertainment and Public Facilities Authority. Add to that fans from 30 states and 555 cities. Overall, an estimated

750,000 people have attended the festival’s first 10 years. The alltime highest night was in 2007, when Hinder, Buchckerry, Papa Roach and The Exies pulled in 17,000 people. “That was one of those ‘perfect storm’ things, where they all had hits on the radio, and it was the opening night of the tour,” Snook says.

Lawn darts haven’t been sold in the U.S. since 1988, when the Consumer Product Safety Commission banned them. Would you want steel-tipped darts flying through your kid-filled backyard? Gentler versions of the game have been around; one of the newest is Sportcraft’s Soft Tip Sky Darts. The four weighty darts have soft, rounded ends instead of the steel. (They’re too heavy for small children.) These get flung toward the two yellow scoring rings, also included. The darts are supposed to stay upright after tossing. For the uninitiated, the concept of lawn darts isn’t so different from beanbag or horseshoes: You’re aiming toward an object — in this case, inside the yellow ring, and you get 3 points for that. If nobody manages a dart in the circle, whoever gets his dart closest to the ring gets a point. Teams of two or four can play.

Move over, BMI for kids, is it time to measure the neck circumference instead? The body mass index (BMI) isn’t a perfect measure for obesity. Convenience and routine are on its side — so health experts aren’t likely to stop using it any time soon — but its limitations have got some doctors thinking. In a study published online Monday in the journal Pediatrics, researchers at the University of Michigan’s Mott Children’s Hospital found measurements of neck circumference to be a reliable technique for assessing whether

children are overweight or obese. Using a sample pool of 1,102 children, the team studied the correlation of kids’ neck circumference with measurements of their heights, weights and waist circumferences, as well as with their ages and BMI statistics. The results confirmed that — more than any other screening technique — neck circumference was the most reliable alternative to BMI, when adjusted to a child’s age and gender. But the findings

went one step further than that, said Dr. Olubukola “Bukky” Nafiu, who led the study, Measuring neck circumference was more convenient and was more accurate than BMI at identifying children with weight problems, he said. “In the next few years, I believe more and more doctors will start screening for obesity and overweight using neck circumference measurements and other methods, instead of the BMI,” he said. — MCT News Service

Lesson in history


War cannon: A British cannon sits behind the River Raisin Battlefield Visitor Center in Monroe, Mich. The visitors center is on the edge of a battlefield that endured hundreds of casualties in the War of 1812. The land is now part of the River Raisin National Battlefield Park, one of American’s newest national parks.

Monroe battlefield site in War of 1812 — largely neglected — is now a national park BOB DOWNING

MCT News Service

Remember the Raisin! That was the Americans’ battle cry in the War of 1812, after some 60 wounded American prisoners were killed or captured by American Indians along the River Raisin in southeastern Michigan. The 1813 battle was a major American defeat and one of the bloodiest battles in the war, with only 33 Americans avoiding death or capture. Today the River Raisin National Battlefield Park is one of America’s newest national parks, although the change from local to federal control is not complete. The Monroe County Historical Society and the Monroe County Historical Commission have been operating a small but firstclass visitor center at the edge of a battlefield that has largely been forgottenand neglected for many years. It includes a lighted 14-minute fiber-optic program that maps the battle, artifacts, exhibits and dioramas at the River Raisin Battlefield Visitor Center.

Behind the red brick building at 1493 E. Elm St. is a small 3.5-acre park at the eastern edge of the one-

The park was the site of the encampment of the 17th U.S. Infantry during battles at Frenchtown. That’s what Monroe was called in 1812. Local organizers have devised three one-hour driving tours that visit different sites of the battle. You can purchase a detailed $5 guide to the tours. The fighting took place on an area that was roughly five miles long and a halfmile wide. Today Monroe, a town of 20,000 about 15 miles north of Toledo, Ohio, covers where the battle took place. The battlefield is domi-

nated by 20 historical markers, but it’s hard to envision the battle in the current urban setting. It was designated as America’s 11th national battlefield on March 30, 2009, by President Barack Obama. The visitor center and surrounding grounds are almost within sight of Interstate 75 at Exit 14. Nearby is a stone cairn at East Elm Street and North Dixie Highway. Another monument, in memory of the dead soldiers from Kentucky, is off South Monroe Street. Local agencies have acquired a potential addition of 35.5 acres for the battlefield. It is a one-time paper mill that has been razed. The tract at the center

of the battlefield has not yet been donated to the National Park Service but that could happen by October. Federal grants were used to clean up that site for potential historical park use.

Long-term plan

The park service will need up to three years to develop a general management plan for the battlefield and another five years to fully implement that plan. Workers will gradually be added, but the center will continue to be the focus of visitors. There have been suggestions that the center of the battlefield be turned back into small farms that were there when the battle took place. Park service officials have estimated that the River

Raisin will never be a giant attraction. It might expect up to 25,000 visitors a year. Monroe is also home to a major figure in American history: Gen. George Armstrong Custer. Custer was born in Ohio but was raised in Monroe and married Elizabeth Bacon, daughter of a prominent local judge. A major statue in downtown Monroe marks the military leader who died in 1876 at the Battle of Little Bighorn. There is a driving tour with 23 stops involving Custer and his family around Monroe. Another fun historic attraction in Monroe County is the Navarre-Anderson Trading Post.

A brief War of 1812 history lesson

The long-ago battle came as the young United States and England fought for control of the Great Lakes and the Northwest Territory. For six days, the north bank of the River Raisin and the town then known as Frenchtown became a bloody battlefield. It is the largest battlefield in Michigan and was one of the largest battles in the War of 1812, involving 934 Americans, 800 Indians and 597 British and Canadian militia. On Aug. 16, 1812,American Gen.William Hull surrendered Detroit. President James Madison named Gen.William Henry Harrison to command the Army of the Northwest Territory. His second in command was Brig. Gen. James Winchester.They planned a winter campaign to recapture Detroit. Harrison led one column to Upper Sandusky in northcentral Ohio. Winchester led 2,000 troops from Kentucky to Perrysburg near Toledo on the Maumee River. Against Harrison’s orders, Winchester sent a relief column to Frenchtown, which was occupied by the British and its Indian allies. On Jan. 18, the Americans dispersed a small detachment of British and Indians after a brief skirmish at Frenchtown. On Jan. 20, Winchester and 250 reinforcements arrived at Frenchtown. On the morning of Jan. 22, the British under Col. Henry Proctor attacked the Americans. The Americans were ill-prepared for the surprise attack and were routed. Winchester surrendered. That afternoon, the British moved their regulars to Detroit, along with the Canadian militia and the American prisoners who could walk. The British said they would return for the remaining American wounded the next day. At 10 a.m. the next day, there was no sign of the British. The Indians began going into buildings, killing the wounded Americans and setting buildings on fire. That became known as the River Raisin Massacre. The American toll was 379 killed and 561 wounded or captured. The British reported 24 killed and 158 wounded. Indian losses were unknown. The defeat led Harrison to return to Ohio, where he built Fort Meigs at Perrysburg. On Sept. 10, 1813, American naval leader Oliver Hazard Perry defeated a British fleet in the Battle of Lake Erie. That resulted in Harrison capturing Detroit and invading Britishheld Canada. — MCT News Service

Festival: ‘community-driven’ event has something for all

Monitor cooking time when switching pans

Question: How do you adjust a cake recipe if you want to use a different size pan, such as using a 13-by-9-inch pan or cupcakes instead of two or three round cake pans? Answer: You don’t need to change the recipe, but you do need to adjust the baking time. But first, you need to make sure volume of the batter will fit in the new pan.

that a 9-inch round cake pan holds about 6 cups. A 13-by-9-inch pan holds 12 cups. And a standard cupcake pan, with ½ cup batter in each of six cups, holds 3 cups. So a two-layer cake batter should convert easily to 12 cupcakes or a sheet cake. The trick after that is figuring out how to adjust the baking time. There is no hard and fast rule, so you’ll have to rely on your senses and checking the cake for the usual signs of doneness, such as pulling away from the sides of the pan or springing back when you touch the center lightly.

Back in the 1800s, Henry David Thoreau wrote that the man who constantly and desperately keeps going to the post office to check for correspondence from others “has not heard from himself in a long while.” “Hamlet’s BlackBerry: A Practical Philosophy for Building a Good Life in the Digital Age” (Harper, 288 pages, $24.99) argues that the same can be said these days for those who are doing the modern equivalent: incessantly checking e-mail, Facebook, Twitter and the like. While recognizing that technology has made tasks like paying bills much easier and faster, Powers disputes the notion that it has made us more efficient. Powers looks to previous eras of dramatic change and draws lessons on how to maintain balance. His own household follows an Internet Sabbath on weekends, an experience that they started out dreading but now welcome as a break from always being connected.

To e- or not to e-? That is the question facing millions of American book-lovers: Will you buy an e-reader to read books electronically? “Never!” cry those devoted to the physical book. “Already!” cry millions who own a Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader, iPad, Kobo, or other e-reader. It’s early yet, but some see an unusual tech trend — led by mature users, 40 and older. And as in the non-e universe, women buy more books, men newspapers and magazines. Electronic texts have existed since at least 1971, when Michael Hart began the Gutenberg Project — and you could read them, too, if you could work a multistory, severalton machine called a computer. For decades, people have been talking about the portable e-reader, and its

To be sure, as Kelly Gallagher, vice president of publishing services at R.R. Bowker, puts it, “We’re still in a 1.0 world with e-books.” Sony debuted its Reader in 2006, and since then has sold 10 million ebooks, said Chris Smythe, director of the Reader Store at Sony. In November 2007 came Kindle by Amazon. About 1.5 million Kindles had sold as of December — and the world took note when Amazon said that on Christmas Day, it sold more e-books than physical books.

According to the Association of American Publishers, 2009 e-book sales (in a year when plain old book sales ebbed 1.8 percent) increased 176.6 percent over 2008, to $169.5 million. E-sales rocketed to $117.8 million through April of this year, at an annual rate double 2009’s. Americans now own an estimated 2.8 million e-readers — not counting computers, still the most common kind. At fewer than 3 percent of all books sold, e-books are still a small corner of the publishing market. But such rapid growth suggests that a new age of reading has begun. Makers of e-books are stingy with their numbers, and industry watchdogs disagree, but some say a large proportion of early e-book owners — up to 66 percent in some surveys — are older than 40, with a “sweet spot” in the 35-to-54 range. Smythe of Sony said that “as of now, the whole e-book industry was trending older.”

Who will pay for botched robbery? H

ospitals are dangerous places in a pair of recent crime novels. Each has numerous plot twists, strong characterization and a diligent hero trying to track down a devious killer. “Storm Prey” by best-selling author John Sandford (Putnam, $27.95) is the 20th in his incredibly popular series starring Lucas Davenport, head of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Davenport’s wife, Weather, is on her way to a complicated surgical process when she pulls into the hospital parking lot, narrowly missing a van leaving the area. For a split second, she sees the driver — who is part of a gang that had just held RAY up the hospital’s WALSH pharmacy, stealBOOKS ing a half-million dollars worth of drugs. An insider, a drug-addicted doctor, is worried because Weather took the same elevator up and may be able to identify him. One of the pharmacists dies. Davenport and his crew become involved, working with minimal clues. Meanwhile, the gang members turn on themselves. The complicated plot features a large but well-developed cast of characters, including scheming villains, dumb robbers, frustrated addicts and a cold-blooded killer. Sandford, one of America’s best crime writers, is in fine form with a compelling page-turner that’s likely to keep you eagerly flipping pages. “Slim to None” by Timothy Sheard (Hard Ball Press, $15) is the fourth in his atmospheric series showcasing Lenny Moss, a Philadelphia-area hospital custodian and shop steward. Moss gets a frantic late-night call from Carleton, a friend and hospital worker, who sees a man furtively dumping a nurse’s body a nearby park. After the conversation, Carleton calls 911 but doesn’t stick around. Police discover the victim and think Carleton’s the killer. He flees, but keeps in touch with Moss. Discovering unnerving facts, Moss investigates. There are many tense scenes inside the hospital as Moss becomes the target of a clever killer, while an over-zealous security chief creates extra challenges. Laced with dark humor and told with an insider’s knowledge, this fast-paced, nifty paperback is the best yet in the series.

e tries to get back there every summer. The site of the old coal mine in Scranton, Pa., where his father found work amid the Great Depression and survived a cave-in that left his back dotted with indents. Henry “Hank” Bullough goes there to remind himself of what Levi Bullough went through, from England to Ellis Island to Scranton, to give his family a life. Hank remembers when the mine closed, company housing with it, and their family of six had to pack into the dwelling of an elderly woman who w Other provided notable refuge. He families in remembers MSU football how Levi set history, out looking Page 8D for work, found some in a steel mill in Canton, Ohio, and lived for a while in the back seat of an abandoned car in a junkyard. And he’ll never forget how Michigan State changed everything. MSU and the game of football gave Hank access to a different life — and he took it and ran with it and made a profound mark on the history of both the Bulloughs and the Spartans. Now they stand together again. Hank’s grandson, Max, will be a freshman linebacker when the Spartans open their season Sept. 4, making this the first threegeneration family of players in program history and just the fifth on record in the history of the Big Ten. “It really is something special,” said Chuck Bullough, son of Hank, uncle of Max and an MSU linebacking star in the 1980s along with brother Shane. “I’d like to think that nobody in America has more admiration, respect, loyalty, die-hard feelings for his university than my dad has

True Spartan: Henry “Hank” Bullough, first a player and then a coach at MSU, with his wife, Lou Ann, at their home in Okemos.

PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa — Germany took third place at the World Cup for the second tournament in a row Saturday with an exciting 3-2 victory over Uruguay. Uruguay, driven by striker Diego Forlan, almost forced extra time. Forlan’s free kick crashed against the crossbar in injury time, the last kick of the match. The match was heading for extra time at 2-2 when Sami Khedira scored a late header.

We have a young team and ... can reach higher.” Forlan said after the game that Uruguay had surpassed expectations. “Obviously it’s spectacular to be among the top four,” he said. “If anyone had asked us at the beginning, we would’ve liked it. It’s positive.” Germany coach Joachim Loew, his voice hoarse from flu, said that his team was going home “with a very good feeling.” “We achieved more than we perhaps expected,” Loew said. “Immediately after this match there is no reason to be disappointed. After the match against Spain everyone was disappointed. But champions rise again.” “We have every reason to be fully satisfied with our

Four home runs lift Tigers over Twins Detroit has won 5 games in row, 17 of 19 at home LARRY LAGE Associated Press

DETROIT — Johnny Damon, Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers had too much power for the Minnesota Twins. Damon’s three-run shot in the fifth inning was Detroit’s fourth home run against Nick

Blackburn, and the surging Tigers went on to beat Minnesota 7-4 Saturday. Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the first, rookie Alex Avila and Magglio Ordonez followed with solo shots in each of the next two innings and Damon’s drive gave the Tigers a four-run lead. “We hit some mistakes pretty good,” Detroit manager Jim Leyland said.

ST. JOHNS — Post 205 advanced to the semifinals of the 33rd annual Spartan Classic after winning two games on Saturday. In game one, Post 205 defeated Grand Ledge, 11-2, in a five-inning mercy. Jacob Pearsall (St. Johns) got the win, pitching a complete game, while striking out four. Tyler Watters (Williamston) led 205, going 3 for 3 with a home run, triple and three RBI. For mer Lansing Catholic standout, Chuck DeClarke went 2 for 3 with two doubles and two RBI for 205. For Grand Ledge, Reid Boucher went 1 for 2 with an RBI. In the quarterfinals, Post 205 defeated Sanches, 10-2, in six innings. Tyler Smith (Portland St. Patrick) got the win, giving up five hits in six innings of work with five strikeouts. Marcus Wojtkowicz (Owosso) went 2 for 4 with two runs and an RBI for 205. Jared Nurenberg (St. Johns) went 2 for 4 and added a run and an RBI for 205.

Alabama-Huntsville hires ex-Spartan

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Former Michigan State defenseman and captain Chris Luongo has been named head coach of the Alabama-Huntsville hockey program. Luongo, 45, a Spartan from 1985-1989, replaces another ex-Spartan — Danton Cole, who resigned last month to join the U.S. National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor as coach of the Under-17 team. Luongo, who’s from Fraser, and Cole were teammates for four seasons at MSU and played on the Spartans’ 1986 NCAA championship team. “You always wonder how your future will play out. I didn’t think this would be an opportunity two months ago,’’ Luongo told the Huntsville Times. UAH athletics director Jim said no one filled the continuity criteria in the job description better than Luongo. “Promoting Chris was a very easy decision to make,” Harris said in an interview with the Times. “Chris has displayed a caring attitude for the student-athletes, not only in ice hockey but across the board in the athletics program and the youth programs across Huntsville. He has excellent teaching skills on the ice. He’s an excellent recruiter.” Luongo, who spent 15 seasons playing pro hockey, including stints with the New York Islanders, Ottawa Senators and Detroit Red Wings, joined Cole’s staff at UAH in 2008. He had been an assistant at Wayne State for two seasons. The future of the UAH program is uncertain. With the folding of the CHA, the Chargers are operating as an independent. They applied to join the CCHA last August but were turned down. — From staff reports

Chavanel leads Tour de France

LES ROUSSES, France — Lance Armstrong said it was hot. Andy Schleck said it was hot. It was hot in the Alps on Saturday, 95 degrees or so, hot enough to make the pavement melt in some places. Armstrong said he had wished for rain during Stage 7 of the Tour de France, and it did rain and thunder and lightning and hail — an hour after the cyclists made it onto their buses. And for one more day the Tour de France general classification contenders, the guys who want to wear the yellow jersey in Paris on July 25, pedaled hard, watched one another closely and held back attacks. It was left to Frenchman Sylvain Chavanel to win his second stage of the Tour and take over the leader’s spot. As expected, all the overall contenders — Armstrong, Schleck, Alberto Contador and Cadel Evans — neither gained nor lost time against one another. Chavanel finished the 103-mile trip from Tournus to Station des Rousses, a ski stop in the seasons when it’s not hot enough to melt the road, in 4 hours, 22.52 minutes. If there was a disappointed member of the contenders’ group, it might have been BMC Racing’s Cadel Evans, the Australian who finished second at the Tour in 2007.


Two Georgia players arrested

ATLANTA — Two football players for the University of Georgia were jailed early Saturday morning on alcohol-related charges less than a week after an embarrassing drunken driving arrest prompted the university’s athletic director to resign. Dontavius Jackson, listed as a sophomore tailback, and sophomore split end Tavarres King were in a Chevrolet Avalanche stopped on a campus road just before 3 a.m., UGA Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said. Jackson, 20, was charged with driving under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident and other motor vehicle offenses. King, 19, was charged with underaged possession of alcohol as were two other passengers inside the Chevrolet. A fifth person was allowed to leave without being arrested. Williamson said his officers started following the truck because it failed to move into the left lane while police were conducting an unrelated traffic stop on the same stretch of road. Soon, the police officer following the car heard a radio transmission saying that the Chevrolet was wanted for an earlier hit-and-run accident. The arrests came less than a week after UGA Athletic Director Damon Evans resigned following an arrest for drunken driving.


Blackhawks have decision to make

SAN JOSE, Calif. — The San Jose Sharks signed Chicago Blackhawks restricted free agent defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson to a four-year, $14 million offer sheet. The Blackhawks have seven days to match the offer. If they choose not to match, they will receiver San Jose’s first- and third-round picks in next year’s NHL draft as compensation. The 23-year-old Hjalmarsson would help replace captain Rob Blake, who announced his retirement at age 40 last month. The Sharks were looking for a defenseman on the market and found one from one of their key competitors in the Western Conference. Hjalmarsson helped Chicago sweep the Sharks in the Western Conference final last season and then beat Philadelphia to win the Stanley Cup. w The Philadelphia Flyers have signed free agent forward Nikolai Zherdev (NIH-koh-ligh ZHAIR-dehv) to a one-year contract. Zherdev had 39 points in 52 games with Atlant-Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League in 2009-10. Over parts of five seasons in the NHL with the Blue Jackets and Rangers, Zherdev has 239 points. — From wire reports

Ball possession the key factor in Cup title match Spain, Netherlands all about creating a few quality chances

tournament. There is no room for disappointment.” Uruguay had come from behind to lead 2-1 when Forlan volleyed in Egidio Arevalo’s 51st-minute cross for his fifth goal of the tournament. Germany defender Marcell Jansen leveled five minutes later with a header after goalkeeper Fernando Muslera misjudged a cross. “I think the match was a real match. They staged a great show,” Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez said. Loew also thought both teams played with passion. “It was obvious tonight both teams wanted to win and not go home empty handed. I have to congratulate the teams on the effort they made and particularly my team when they were trailing,” Loew said. Man-of-the match Thomas Mueller, coming back from suspension in the semifinal, gave Germany the lead in the 18th minute, his fifth goal at the World Cup, sweeping the ball home after Bastian Schweinsteiger’s swerving shot had been blocked but not collected by Muslera, who was at fault in Germany’s first two goals. Edinson Cavani equalized for Uruguay in the 28th when he slid a shot past goalkeeper Hans-Joerg Butt. Uruguay has beaten Germany

only once in 10 matches, in 1928. Germany beat Uruguay in the third-place match in 1970 — the last time Uruguay reached the semifinals. “I don’t think it’s too vain to think that if we improve a little we can aspire to certain prominence in future international tournaments,” Tabarez said. Mueller and Forlan are now even at five goals with David Villa of Spain and Wesley Sneijder of the Netherlands, both of whom can increase their total in Sunday’s final. This match was very important for us. We made some mistakes and were about to lose it but we got it back. The team has proved we can play at the top level,” Mueller said. Germany’s young team was missing five regulars through injury and illness, including striker Miroslav Klose. Klose, with a painful back, missed a chance to match or beat the World Cup scoring record of 15 goals, held by Brazil striker Ronaldo. “Luckily, we won, because the disappointment over the semifinal was still there,” Schweinsteiger said. “We were behind and we rallied, that shows the character if this team. I am very proud of this team although I have tears in one eye because we did not reach the final.”

LeBron great to have, but it can be difficult challenge


om Izzo has a reputation as a pretty good recruiter. Whether he would have been effective in persuading LeBron James to stay in Cleveland with the Cavaliers to join him as the team’s rookie head coach or not, we’ll never know. Everyone said Izzo needed LeBron to make a move to the Cavaliers worthwhile but in effect is James a coach killer? Because the Cavaliers didn’t win the league title this past season, Mike Brown was fired as head coach despite the team having the NBA’s best regular season record at 61-21. And good luck to Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. He better win it all with James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh very soon or he’ll be the next LeBron coach to get the axe. Even if James stayed with Cleveland and the Cavs didn’t win the NBA title next season, Izzo might have well been blamed as “another college coach who proved he couldn’t make a successful move to the next level.” When Izzo looks back on his career, he may well declare the Cavs’ offer as the best move he never made. w Gilbert can’t have it both ways: I can’t remember any pro sports owner going off on losing a player the way Cavaliers’ owner Dan Gilbert did in the aftermath of James’ announcement. Gilbert expressed his disgust for James’ apparent disloyalty to the community and franchise but didn’t Gilbert try to entice Tom Izzo to do exactly the same thing by leaving Michigan State? w Heat strength coach has MSU background: Michigan State plays an indirect role in James’ health in Miami. The strength and conditioning coach of the Heat is Bill Foran, who has been with the franchise all 22 years of its existence. Foran earned a master’s degree at Michigan State in 1981 in exercise physiology after receiving an under grad degree from Central Michigan in 1977. w Magic’s achievements special: James has a long way to go to match Magic Johnson’s career. Earvin won a national title with Michigan State in 1979 and James never attended college. Both won high school state titles and Olympic gold medals, but Earvin won five NBA championships and he did it all with one team — the Los Angeles Lakers. Does it seem more impressive that Magic, Larry Bird and Bill Russell, among others, played their entire pro careers with one team? James is just another pro who moved from one city to another. w What’s ahead for Softball Classic? With the passing of Softball Classic founder Fred Whitten, what happens now with the tournament? Not everyone agreed with Fred, but he loved high school sports and his showcase gave area girls teams a chance to shine alongside baseball’s popular Diamond Classic each season. The Softball Classic needs sponsors, like those who help the Diamond Classic. In my judgment, it needs a much more simplified format that is easy for one and all to understand and follow. It has value each spring and it will need someone with Whitten’s enthusiasm to help it continue. w Prep football right around the corner: Four weeks from Monday, high school football practice begins. Key matchups on opening night, Aug. 27, find

TIM STAUDT Staudt on Sunday

East Lansing facing Haslett and Sexton going against Holt, games that have become good rivalries. Another intriguing game has a much more inexperienced DeWitt team facing up-and-coming Eastern. And two teams desperate for an openingnight victory and starved for success also meet — Okemos and Waverly. w Saban back in the movies: Coming to American movie screens on August 24 is “Nick Saban: Game Changer.” And it’s not his first movie appearance either. Saban played himself, recruiting Michael Oher in the “Blind Side” during his tenure as head coach at LSU. Saban’s newest movie is essentially a documentary produced by Flash Light Media Group out of Memphis. Saban allowed camera crews to follow him around for the last year. It included personal scenes of his home life. Interviews are interspersed throughout, some of which include current Alabama assistants. Those could include former MSU coaches Bobby Williams, Joe Pendry and Jim McElwain, all of whom are on Saban’s current staff. Saban was head coach at Michigan State from 1995-99. w Challenge for the networks on Sept. 25: Good luck to the major networks looking for a decent Big Ten football match up to air on Sept. 25. The 10 league teams in action should win their games — Northern Colorado at Michigan State, Bowling Green at Michigan, Eastern Michigan at Ohio State, Temple at Penn State, Akron at Indiana, Ball State at Iowa, Northern Illinois at Minnesota, Central Michigan at Northwestern, Toledo at Purdue and Austin Peay at Wisconsin. If you were ABC or ESPN, which game would you choose? w Hoosiers’ nonleague schedule soft: Indiana seems determined to move up in the Big Ten standings by hook or by crook. The Hoosiers can’t dumb down their nonconference schedule much more —home against Towson State, at Western Kentucky, and home against both Akron and Arkansas State. Win ’em all and the Hoosiers can then “earn” a bowl bid with a 2-6 league record. Remember bowl games are rewards for teams having good seasons. w U-M women way behind Spartans: Much has been made of Michigan trailing Michigan State in men’s basketball. But how about on the women’s side? U-M coach Kevin Borseth was brought in several years ago to change the entire culture of the women’s game in Ann Arbor. And while he has had modest success, the Wolverines are nowhere near what Michigan State has fashioned under Joanne P. McCallie and Suzy Merchant. The top players from around the state seem to be flocking to East Lansing, including this season’s three newcomers — East Lansing’s Miss Basketball Klarissa Bell, Detroit Country Day’s Madison Williams and Grand Rapids Catholic Central’s Annalise Pickrel. And Midland Dow’s highly touted Becca Mills and Central Lake’s Jasmine Hines are on board for 2011. Tim Staudt is the sports director at WILX-TV (Channel 10) and host of the radio show “Staudt on Sports,” which airs 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday on WVFN 730-AM.

Change inevitable; most drivers are resigned to it CHRIS JENKINS

Auto racing

Associated Press

JOLIET, Ill. — Most drivers seemed resigned to the idea that NASCAR officials will make changes, perhaps even radical ones, to the format used to determine the stock car racing’s champion. One star actually sounded enthusiastic. Well aware of skidding fan interest, Dale Earnhardt Jr. said he understands the need to spice up the sport — even if it scares some fans who liked things the way they were. “I think it’ll be awesome and exciting, and I kind of look forward to all the changes,” Earnhardt said. “I think that sort of extreme (step) is scary to the traditionalist, but it fits the world we live in today.” NASCAR chairman Brian France said recently that officials are considering changes to the Chase format, although he didn’t offer specifics. France essentially ruled out what he called a “winner-take-all” scenario, but said he wants to find a way to produce more big moments that feel like a Game 7 in other sports. The idea of change is

Reutimann wins Sprint Cup race

JOLIET, Ill. — David Reutimann blew by Jeff Gordon and cruised to the victory in the Sprint Cup race at Chicagoland Speedway. Carl Edwards made a charge in the closing laps, cutting Reutimann’s lead to less than a second, but he couldn’t get close enough and finished second Saturday night. Gordon took third, followed by Clint Bowyer and Jamie McMurray. It was the second career victory for Reutimann, who also won at Charlotte in May 2009. And it was a relief for a driver who’d been robbed of a few potential good finishes because of engine problems earlier in the season. earning mixed reviews. “I’m not a big fan of change so they know where I stand on it,” current points leader Kevin Harvick said. w GORDON ON LEBRON: Count Jeff Gordon among those who consider themselves fans of NBA star LeBron James, but were a little put off by the way he handled his live-television free-agency announcement on Thursday. “I think I learned what not to do,” Gordon said. “I’m a big fan of

LeBron and I think it’s very cool that he’s going to Miami, but I don’t think the way they went about it is the best marketing idea in the world. You want to create hype, but you also want to be a positive and not a negative. I think I saw more, other than the thing that they did for the Boys and Girls Club, I saw more of it being a little negative. I’m anxious to see how they do when the season starts.” w MOROSE MATT: Roush Fenway Racing is mired in a slump, and Matt Kenseth’s No. 17 team is feeling it. “I don’t feel like I’m a last-place driver, I don’t feel like we have a last-place team,” Kenseth said. “And when you run like that, it wears on you after a while.” Kenseth hasn’t had a top-10 finish since Charlotte in May. “I know I’m probably cheering all you guys up today with my upbeat attitude, but it’s frustrating to go out at what I feel like is probably one of my best tracks, or our best tracks in the past, which is this place,” Kenseth said. “We were (37th) in the first practice and 40th in the second, and that’s as fast as I can go.” Kenseth said he has offered suggestions to team executives. “We all have our different ideas and theories, or whatever, and the people that run the place don’t like mine,” Kenseth said. “So we’ll just keep going the way we’re going and hope it gets sorted out.”

1914: Babe Ruth made his major league debut for the Boston Red Sox and received credit for a 4-3 victory over Cleveland. He was removed for a pinch hitter in the seventh, and Duffy Lewis’ single led to the winning run. 1944: Phil Cavaretta set an All-Star game record by reaching base safely five straight times: triple, single, three walks: to lead the NL to a 7-1 victory over the AL at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh. 1973: Jim Northrup of Detroit knocked in eight runs, batting in the leadoff spot, to lead the Tigers to a 14-2 romp over the Texas Rangers. 1978: Steve Garvey keyed the NL’s 7-3 All-Star victory at San Diego’s Jack Murphy Stadium with a game-tying, two-run single and a triple that sparked a four-run eighth inning. 1985: Nolan Ryan of the Houston Astros became the first pitcher in major league history to reach the 4,000strikeout mark when he fanned New York’s Danny Heep leading off the sixth.

Lugnuts fall behind early, never recover Goins extends on-base streak to 24 games CHRIS SOLARI

Things started as poorly as they could have for the Lugnuts on Saturday. A leadoff longball by Bowling Green’s Cody Rogers off Lansing starter Dave Sever set the tone in an 11-5 loss and was one of three Hot Rods homers that also included an

inside-the-parker at Cooley Law School Stadium. Yet one constant remained a bright spot for the Lugnuts. Shortstop Ryan Goins’ fourth-inning single up the middle marked the 24th straight game he has reached base. The Blue Jays’ fourth-round pick from 2009 surpassed Brad Glenn’s team-high 23-game streak to start this season. Goins — a 22-year-old product of Round Rock, Texas, and Dallas Baptist University — also had a 17-game on-base streak earlier this season.

But his was one of just seven hits the Lugnuts managed in the game. One of their runs scored came via a Bowling Green balk in the first inning, and Glenn’s monstrous tworun home run Glenn onto the patio beyond leftcenter in the ninth inning made the final score a little more respectable. Alexander Colome had a lot to do with the Lugnuts’ lack of offense.

Today’s game Bowling Green at Lansing w Time: 2:05 p.m. w Radio: WQTX 92.1-FM

Ranked by Baseball America as the No. 7 prospect for Tampa Bay, the wiry 6-foot-2 right-hander’s pitches darted all around the plate and perplexed Lansing’s hitters all night, with a lively fastball clocked in the high 90 mph range (he touched 100 once). Colome went six innings, allowing just five hits and two earned runs while striking

out six and walking none. He got immediate help before the crowd of 8,114 could even settle into their seats. Rogers launched Sever’s second pitch onto Larch Street beyond the high right-field fence.Andthingsgotlittle better from there for Sever (2-6), who was done three-plus innings later after giving up seven runs and six earned. In the third inning, Bennett Davis smashed Sever’s offering deep to straightaway center over the head of Lansing’s Kenny Wilson. The ball caromed off the base of the wall away from

Wilson, into no-man’s-land between him and Glenn in right, as Davis circled the bases for the third in-thepark homer at Cooley Stadium this season. Glenn, who was activated from the 7-day DL on Wednesday, also doubled and finished with three RBI. Sean Ochinko added an RBI double for the Lugnuts. Lansing and Bowling Green wrap up their series at 2:05 p.m. today at Cooley Stadium. The Lugnuts send righthander Ryan Tepera (7-3, 3.16 ERA) to face Hot Rods lefty Kyle Lobstein (5-4, 4.27).

Tigers: Twins’ Pitching helps Yanks into first starters struggle ELAINE THOMPSON/Associated Press

Providing a spark: Nick Swisher, who has made his first All-Star team this year, has been key to Yankees’ first-place surge this season.


San Diego also needs staff to keep it atop division

w Arthur Rhodes makes

the All-Star team: The Reds 40-year-old setup man earned his first trip to the game in his 19th season. w Alex Rios’ health: The White Sox center fielder hit .199 with three HRs in injury-plagued 2009. Hit .302 with 14 HRs in first 78 games to help Chicago climb back into AL Central race. w Padres and Reds remain in first place: Reds rebuilding project has been accelerated and Padres have been doing it with great pitching from Mat Latos and Heath Bell.

JON KRAWCZYNSKI Associated Press

As the second quarter of the baseball season came to a close, the New York Yankees made their move. The defending champions got off to a slow start by their sky-high standards due to injury, but have surged back to their usual spot on top of the AL East thanks to an MVP-type season from Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher’s first All-Star bid and a starting rotation that has stood out even in the “Year of the Pitcher.” CC Sabathia, Andy Pettitte and Phil Hughes have combined to go 32-7 to help the Yankees take first place away from Tampa Bay and put some distance between them and the banged-up Boston Red Sox. The San Diego Padres have used a similar formula to keep their surprising success going. Mat Latos, Clayton Richard and Jon Garland have kept the offensively challenged Padres in games, and Heath Bell has closed them out to keep them atop the NL West. Pitchers were dominating when The Associated Press identified some first-quarter trends at the end of May, and that didn’t change in the second quarter this year. Two more no-hitters — from Roy Halladay and Edwin Jackson — were added to gems from Dallas Braden and Ubaldo Jimenez, while Washington’s Stephen Strasburg has taken over the nation’s capital. Fittingly, the signature moment of the first half of this season also came on the mound with Armando Galarraga’s near-perfect game for Detroit. A blown call that cost Galarraga a place in the record books. Here’s a look at some of the stars, slumps, surges and surprises over the second quarter of the year heading into the All-Star break. All statistics were as of Thursday’s games.


w Strasburg, RHP, Nationals: Major League Baseball has a new rock star in a town that desperately needed it. He was 2-2 with a 2.45 ERA with 53 strikeouts in 36


DUANE BURLESON/Associated Press

Robbed: A bad call at first base ruined Armando Galarraga’s perfect game against Cleveland on June 2. 2-3 innings. Only made six starts, but still got All-Star consideration. w Jimenez, RHP, Rockies: On pace (15-1, 2.20) to challenge Denny McClain’s 31 wins in 1968. w Joey Votto, 1B, Reds: Numbers (.314, 22 HR, 60 RBI) better than Pujols to lead Reds to first place in NL Central. w Cliff Lee, LHP, Rangers: Put up incredible numbers, going 8-3 with 2.34 ERA, 89 strikeouts and four — four! — walks. w Miguel Cabrera, 1B, Tigers: Led AL with .347 batting average and 73 RBI and was just two off the lead in HRs with 21 for surging Detroit. w Honorable mention: David Price, LHP, Rays (12-4, 2.42, 100 Ks), Jered Weaver, RHP, Angels (8-4, 2.97, 130 K), Scott Rolen, 3B, Reds (.292, 17 HRs, 57 RBI), Josh Hamilton, OF, Rangers (.345, 22 HR, 64 RBI).


w Josh Johnson, RHP, Marlins: Stole some of the spotlight from Jimenez, who has struggled of late. Johnson was leading majors with 1.70 ERA and was 9-3 with 123 strikeouts and only four HRs allowed. w David Ortiz, DH, Red Sox: Was hitting .185 with 4 HRs on May 10 and facing

questions about being washed up. Hit .298 with 13 HRs, 43 RBI, .642 slugging in next 46 games for revived Red Sox. w Yankees: Injury riddled Bombers were 26-18 and six games behind Rays on May 23. Won 27 of next 40 games to jump into first place in AL East.


w Andre Ethier, OF, Dodgers: Sensational in first quarter of season with .392, 11 HRs, 38 RBI in 33 games. But has struggled since returning from DL with finger injury, hitting .248 with 3 HRs, 12 RBI in 34 games. w Carlos Zambrano, RHP, Cubs: The $91.5 million man was just 3-6 with a 5.66 ERA in 22 games. Has been demoted to bullpen and was suspended after a dugout tirade in game against White Sox a month ago. w Nick Blackburn, RHP, Twins: Went 5-0 with 2.65 ERA and only two HRs allowed in May. Went 1-5 with 9.28 ERA since to put his rotation spot in jeopardy. w Carlos Pena, 1B, Rays: Average has hovered below .200 for most of season and had two homers in 23 games, causing manager Joe Maddon to move him from fourth to seventh in order as Rays fell to second place.

w Joe Mauer’s power outage: Reigning AL MVP hitting below .300 (.297) this late in season for first time since 2007. After belting career-high 28 HRs and slugging .587 last season to earn an eight-year, $184 million contract, Twins catcher has just four HRs and slugging has dropped to .431. w Tim Lincecum is human: Two-time reigning NL Cy Young has pedestrian 3.16 ERA and four times has failed to reach sixth inning. Still has 131 strikeouts and 9-4 record. w Phillies languishing: After making World Series in consecutive seasons, Phillies were in third place because their talented lineup was struggling with injuries and inconsistency. w Twins tanking: Held a 4½-game lead in Central and were 11 games over .500 on June 11. Pitching woes from Scott Baker, Kevin Slowey and Blackburn contributed to 9-15 stretch that dropped them to third place.


Star game Tuesday night in Anaheim, Calif., because of a concussion. Cabrera will start in his place at first base. “To play for somebody that is hurt, I don’t like that,” Cabrera said. Morneau was evaluated by Dr. Kenneth Podell, a concussion specialist who consults with pro teams in Detroit, and was advised to rest in Minnesota during the break. “You’re always concerned about a head injury,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. The third-place Twins have concerns on the field, too, losing four in a row and seven of nine. They led the division by 4½ games less than a month ago and now trail Detroit by four games. Minnesota fell to three games over .500 for the first time since April 14 when it was 6-3. Starting pitching has been the biggest problem. Blackburn (7-7) allowed seven runs and seven hits over four innings and matched a career high by giving up four homers. He is 1-6 in his last eight starts. “I’m sick of this,” Blackburn said. “Every time I go out there, I’m not getting the job done.” Jeremy Bonderman (5-6) gave up three runs in six innings for the win. AllStar closer Jose Valverde pitched a perfect ninth for

his 19th straight save since blowing his first opportunity with the Tigers. Minnesota made some slick plays defensively to keep it relatively close. Third baseman Nick Punto stopped a shot in the hole, wheeled and threw home to prevent Austin Jackson from scoring in the first, an at-bat before Cabrera hit a line drive over the left-center fence. The next inning, Punto went to his left to get another grounder and made a throw to first from behind the pitcher’s mound one at-bat before Avila’s homer. Poor starting pitching, though, made the gems in the field moot for the slumping Twins. “Another game where we give up an early touchdown and then have to spend the rest of the game fighting back,” Gardenhire said a day after Francisco Liriano gave up seven runs in 1 2-3 innings. “When you give up early runs, you need the pitchers to put up some zeros to give the hitters a chance to get you back into the game, but we didn’t do that again.” Orlando Hudson hit a two-run single in the third for Minnesota and Michael Cuddyer had a solo homer the next inning. Jason Kubel, the only batter to face Tigers reliever Daniel Schlereth, hit a leadoff double in the seventh and scored on Delmon Young’s grounder to make it 7-4.

MEMORABLE MOMENTS w Junior retires: Struggling at the plate and proving to be a distraction for the reeling Mariners, Ken Griffey Jr. abruptly retired in June. Hitting .184 and benched for two weeks, Griffey made a short announcement before getting in his car and driving off into the sunset toward his family’s home in Florida, ending the greatest career in Seattle history. w Thome passes Killebrew: Twins slugger Jim Thome still has plenty of pop left, and he showed it on July 3 when he hit two home runs against Tampa Bay to move past Harmon Killebrew for 10th on baseball’s career home run list with 574.

SILVIS, Ill. — Steve Stricker is making it look easy. He insists that it’s not, even after posting stunningly low scores. Stricker already has broken a couple of PGA Tour records at the John Deere Classic and has more in sight after opening a sixstroke lead with a 9-underpar 62 on Saturday. That followed rounds of 60 and 66 at the TPC Deere Run course, which has stood no chance against the assault Stricker and his fellow players have launched. “It’s never easy going out there,” Stricker said. “It wasn’t easy to start the round today. Coming to the course I felt like I’d never been in this position. I was nervous. I didn’t feel like doing anything. I just wanted to get out there and starting playing.” And play he did. Stricker’s masterful round left the tournament’s defending champion at 25-under 188, the best 54-hole score in PGA Tour history. He also has the best three-round score in relation to par. With a 65 Sunday, he’d break the 72-hole record of 254. So dominant was Stricker that Jeff Maggert shot a 63 and lost ground. Paul Goydos, golf’s latest Mr. 59 after a magical round on Thursday, played well enough to keep pace in most tournaments, just not this one. It would be hard for anyone to keep up with Stricker the way he’s playing. The 43-year-old from Madison, Wis., hit accurate approaches to give himself short putts for birdies in most cases and he deftly extricated himself the only two times he got in trouble. So just what’s going on here? “If I knew, I would bottle this,” Stricker said. “I don’t know what’s going on.” Maggert, who started the day five shots behind Stricker, was at 19-under 194 and tied with Goydos, who trailed Stricker by just

golfer who hasn’t won a major. Creamer kept her game together as a dozen others were losing theirs on a grueling day at the U.S. Women’s Open on Saturday, taking a three-shot lead over Wendy Ward that she hopes will hold up in the final round. Creamer, who played 29 holes Saturday, is 1 under for the tournament with five holes remaining in a third round that will be completed this morning. Ward has only No. 18 to play. Suzann Pettersen is four back with four holes to go, while 15-year-old Alexis Thompson, Amy Yang and Brittany Lang are five back. Only Thompson completed the third round. All this only a weekend after she missed the cut in the Jamie Farr Classic. The only other 70 of the day was by Thompson, who is playing in her fourth Women’s Open — her fourth! — despite not yet being 16 but only her second tournament as a pro. She is at 4-over 217. one stroke going into the round. Playing in the last group with Stricker, Goydos saw his deficit grow steadily as his partner drilled birdie putts on seven of the last 11 holes. Former PGA Champion Shaun Micheel also shot a 63 — and found himself 10 strokes off the lead. Rocco Mediate made a hole-inone and an eagle en route to a 64 but trailed by 14. Matt Jones wriggled into fourth place with a 66 that left him nine strokes back. “Stricker’s nine in front of me, so you’d have to have something miraculous happen to him,” Jones said. “That’s not going to happen the way he’s playing, so my goal now is to play for second.” EUROPEAN: Edoardo Molinari of Italy shot an 8-under 63 Saturday to take a one stroke lead over Darren Clarke of Northern Ireland going into the final day of the Scottish Open at Loch Lomond. Molinari was at 15-under 198 after a round that included an eagle and seven birdies. Clarke had a 67. Molinari’s younger brother, Francesco, had a 67 and was tied for third with Peter Hedblom of Sweden (69) seven shots back. John Daly was in a three-way tie for ninth at 4-under after a 69.

PAUL COLLETTI/Associated Press

Record pace: Steve Stricker has 27 birdies in three days, and his 25-under 188 broke the previous 54-hole mark by a stroke.

Tiger loves St. Andrews, but will his game thrive? British Open up next on Woods’ comeback trail

In the majors, Woods looks like he is getting close. Having not competed for five months, Woods had a chance to win on the back nine Sunday at the Masters and tied for fourth. Then at the U.S. Open, playing in the second-to-last group on Sunday, he made five bogeys on the opening 10 holes and tied for fourth. But in every other tournament, Woods has looked like any other player. A longtime British journalist came out to watch him at The Players Championship, and after three holes walked back in. “Nothing special here,” the journalist said. There was that missed cut at Quail Hollow with the highest 36-hole score of Woods’ career. There was the neck injury that caused him to withdraw from The Players Championship. In the two other PGA Tour events where he played all four rounds, Woods finished a combined 26 shots out of

the lead. “Just call it one of those things,” Woods said. “Tried just the same in every one. For some reason, those two (majors) have been my best results.” What to expect from him at St. Andrews? “Yeah, it’s probably hard for me to answer,” Phil Mickelson said. “I probably have as good a guess as you do.” The No. 1 world ranking, which has belonged to Woods over the last five years, will be up for grabs at St. Andrews between Woods and Mickelson. Mickelson has never fared well in golf’s oldest championship, his only top-10 coming in 2004 when he finished one shot out of a playoff at Royal Troon. He thinks he has it figured out, saying that he put too much spin on the ball in recent years. If he has learned the secret to the links, this might be an opportunity to win more than one major in a year for the first time.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — During the first week of January, when Tiger Woods was in therapy and no one knew when he was coming back or how he would play, Jack Nicklaus looked at 2010 as a big year for Woods’ pursuit of major championships. “If Tiger is going to pass my record, this is a big year for him in that regard,” Nicklaus said at the start of the season. It was more much about “where” than who, when or how. Augusta National for the Masters. Pebble Beach for the U.S. Open. St. Andrews for the British Open. Woods has won half of his 14 majors on those courses, just as Nicklaus finished his career having won half of his record 18 majors on the same three. Woods tied for fourth in the first two majors. The Old Course at St. Andrews, however, is where Woods really feels at home. He played his first British Open on these ageless links as a 19-year-old amateur and made the cut. He first won the career Grand Slam at St. Andrews in 2000 with a record score to par (19-under 269) for an eight-shot victory. He returned in 2005 to win by five shots and reaffirm his dominance in the game. Such is his affection for the Old Course that Woods was asked last month which would be the ideal rotation for him to play the four majors. Without hesitation, Woods replied, “I’d probably pick St. Andrews all four times.” The only question is what kind of game he brings to the home of golf.

Henry “Hank” Bullough

w Born: Jan. 24, 1934 in Scranton,


w Playing career: Hank was a

standout guard on both sides of the ball for the Spartans, a sophomore starter on Biggie Munn’s 1952 national title team and a junior on the 1953 team that won the Rose Bowl in MSU’s first year in the Big Ten. Hank was a fifth-round pick of Green Bay who played two seasons with the Packers, sandwiched around two years serving in the Korean War. w Size as a college senior: 6-2, 200 w Since then: An MSU assistant coach from 1959-69 under Duffy Daugherty, Hank was defensive coordinator for the great teams of 1965 and ’66. He went on to a successful NFL career that included a 1971 Super Bowl ring with the Baltimore Colts and a head coaching stint with the Buffalo Bills in 1985 and ’86. He lives in Okemos and is executive director of the MSU Football Players Association, which connects former players, assistant coaches and managers with the MSU program.

Shane Bullough

w Born: Sept. 26, 1964 in Lansing w Playing career: Shane and

offensive lineman Pat Shurmur were the first recruits for George Perles, who took over as MSU coach in 1983. A top prospect from Cincinnati Moeller High, Shane played as a true freshman and was the starting middle linebacker as a junior and senior. He is 16th on MSU’s all-time list with 311 career tackles. A back injury that bothered Shane throughout his college career prevented him from attempting a pro career. w Size as a college senior: 5-11, 217 w Since then: Shane got his master’s degree in marketing and spent several years developing shopping centers with his college roommate and brother-in-law, Bobby Morse. He is still in real estate and lives in Traverse City. Shane also assists for the Traverse City St. Francis High football team, where son Max just graduated. Shane and his wife, Lee Ann, have three younger children — sons Riley and Byron and daughter Holly.

Chuck Bullough

w Born: March 3, 1968 in Lansing w Playing career: Chuck was a

redshirt freshman on the 1987 team that won the Big Ten and the Rose Bowl. He took over the starting middle linebacker spot as a junior in 1990, replacing Butkus Award winner Percy Snow. He helped lead MSU to a share of the Big Ten title that season, then set the singleseason record for tackles with 175 as a senior in 1991. He is fifth on MSU’s all-time tackles list with 391. w Size as a college senior: 6-2, 230 w Since then: Bullough was drafted in the eighth round by Philadelphia and played for three teams in a five-year NFL career. After working as a graduate assistant for MSU, he started his coaching career with the Chicago Bears. He is entering his fifth season with UCLA, his second as defensive coordinator. He and wife Nicole have two daughters, Chloe and Annika.

Max Bullough

w Born: Feb. 11, 1992 in Muskegon

w Playing career: A three-year

starter and two-time all-state selection at Traverse City St. Francis High, Bullough was rated among the nation’s top five inside linebackers by the major recruiting services as a senior. He had 137 tackles and also ran for 466 yards as a senior. Max enrolled early at MSU and was impressive at middle linebacker during the Spartans’ annual spring game. He had a 4.0 grade-point average during MSU’s spring semester. w Size as a college freshman: 6-3, 228

tended college. Jim Sr. played at Notre Dame in the 1950s, co-captaining with Paul Hornung. Jim Jr. was a part of the 1977 national championship team. The link is Bobby, who roomed with Shane at MSU and turned in one of the legendary plays in MSU football history, a punt return for a touchdown in a 1984 win at Michigan. MSU coach Mark Dantonio and former Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis both had heredity on their side as they battled to land Max, who gave a verbal commitment to MSU during his junior season at Traverse City St. Francis High. Although Max’s family believes it was a tough decision, he said during spring football that it was easier than it may have seemed. “You know, honestly, in my mind, there really wasn’t (a question). I have always been coming here,” said Max, who graduated early from high school so he could enroll and participate in spring drills. “I love Michigan State. This is where I am supposed to be.” That’s the same conclusion Shane and Chuck eventually reached during their recruitment, but not immediately. Shane was a heavily pursued linebacker from Cincinnati Moeller High (Hank was defensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals at the time) who had offers from Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame and Georgia. “Hank never pushed them to go to Michigan State,” said Hank’s wife, Lou Ann, “or even to play football.” The fact that MSU’s new coach was “Uncle” George Perles, though, helped seal the deal. Shane was Perles’ first recruit in 1983 — and just to make certain, Perles offered eighth-grader Chuck a scholarship at the time as well. “Turns out he became a great player too,” Perles said. Chuck was a high school star in Orchard Park, N.Y., with his dad serving as head coach of the Buffalo Bills at the time. He strongly considered Syracuse before heading to MSU in 1987. “Part of me thought I didn’t want to follow them, I wanted to do my own thing,” Chuck said. “But looking back, yeah, I was going there.” Shane and Chuck both spent two years starting at middle linebacker, the key position in Perles’ “stunt” 4-3 defense. Shane helped build Perles’ program in four years, while Chuck contributed to MSU’s last two Big Ten titles in his five years. “They were exactly the same player,” Perles said of Shane and Chuck, who combined for 702 tackles at MSU and earned first team AllBig Ten honors as seniors. Now it’s Max’s turn. As with his sons, Hank did not try to sway Max to go to MSU, giving him just this advice on his choice: “If you got hurt the first day, God forbid, would you be happy at that school for the rest of your life?” Max is about the same size (6-foot-3, 228) as Chuck was as an MSU senior, and he wants to play right away. It appears likely he’ll get that chance.

Big Ten blood lines

The State Journal checked with historians and sports information directors around the Big Ten and found that the Bullough family is the fifth known three-generation family among the 11 schools that currently play Big Ten football. Here’s a look at those families and the popularly accepted “first family” for each program: w Illinois: The Illini have a pair of

three-generation families — the Wrights (Robert, John Sr. and John Jr.) and the Levantis (Louis, brothers John and Mike, and Nick). The first family is the Butkus family, led by NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Dick. His brother Ron and nephews Mark and Luke also played at Illinois. w Indiana: No three-generation families. First family is the Deal family — All-America Russ Deal (1945 Big Ten champs) and sons Mike and Mark Deal. w Iowa: No three-generation families. First family is the Hilgenberg family. Brothers Wally and Jerry played in the 1950s and ’60s. Wally had a 16-year NFL career. Jerry had three sons who played at Iowa, and Wally had one. w Michigan: One three-generation family, the Herrnsteins. Albert and brother William played in the late 19th century, followed by William Jr. (1922-25) and John (1955-58). First family is the Dufek family — three stars in Don, Don Jr. and Bill. w Minnesota: No three-generation families. First family is the Barbers — Marion Jr., Marion III and his brother Dom. Both Marions went on to NFL careers. Barber III Marion III had 35 rushing touchdowns with the Gophers, one more than his father. w Northwestern: No threegeneration families. First family is the Burton family. Ron Burton was an All-America running back

Hank wouldn’t mind seeing Max redshirt, but Shane said he is deferring to his son, who “always pushes the envelope and always has goals.” “The thing with Max is, more than the Bullough legacy, he’s trying to get Michigan State football back to

for Ara Parseghian in the late 1950s. All four of his sons played for Northwestern between 1981 and 1996. w Ohio State: No three-generation families. First family is the Griffin family. Brothers Archie, Ray and Duncan all starred at Ohio State, playing Archie Griffin together in 1975 when Archie won his second straight Heisman trophy. w Penn State: Junior running back Joe Juhey is part of Penn State’s first family and the only four-generation family on record in the Big Ten. Great grandfather Bob Higgins was the school’s second All-American, in 1915. His daughter married All-American Steve Suhey. Three of their sons — including Joe’s father, Matt — played for Penn State in the 1970s. Joe’s cousin Kevin also played for Penn State. w Purdue: No three-generation families. First family is the Dierking family, the only father-son captain combination in program history. Scott was a running back and captain before a seven-year NFL career from 1977-83. Dan is a senior captain and fullback who broke Red Grange’s rushing records at Wheaton (Ill.) Warrenville South High. w Wisconsin: No three-generation families. First family is the Holland family. Louis played for the Badgers from 1961-64, followed by sons Louis Jr. and Tyler. — Joe Rexrode

where it should be,” Shane said. “I want my son to have the best experience he can possibly have, obviously, but the thrill is in the hunt of becoming a championship team again. I know coach Dantonio and he has those goals, and we have those goals.”

MIAMI — In Chris Bosh, the Miami Heat got a power forward and a power broker. Sure, Heat president Pat Riley pulled together the deal, Dwyane Wade had a county renamed in his honor and the anticipation of LeBron James’ decision turned into a drama unlike anything the NBA has likely ever seen. But the first domino that fell into place was Bosh — and if he went elsewhere, the other two stars almost surely would have as well. It went down like this: Bosh told Wade he wanted to play in Miami, which immediately convinced the 2006 NBA finals MVP to spurn Chicago’s offer and stay with the Heat. About 48 hours later, Wade got a call from James, telling him it’d be a South Beach threefor-all. However long Bosh stays with the Heat, he may never have a more significant assist. “I think it was more of a collective effort,” Bosh said. “I know these two guys. They have to make their own decisions. There was no point where we asked each other to, ‘OK, we’re going to talk and we’re all going to go here.’ We have to play in the best positions for our families, for ourselves, and for our careers. “And Miami was the obvious choice.” Not until Bosh made up his mind, it wasn’t. Wade was absolutely torn by the decision between Chicago and Miami, so much so that he asked family members to write down their top choices — and that didn’t even break the tie between his hometown and the city where he’s starred for seven years. He told the Heat the only way he would stay put is if they landed Bosh or James. Bosh had a half-dozen offers, but knew the only way he’d get to play with two superstars was by coming to Miami. So he took his leap of Heat faith. “When Chris told me that,” Wade said, “it all just came together. And then it was up to LeBron.” James eventually completed the trifecta — three of the top five choices from the 2003 draft — that will surely be the talk of the NBA for years to come. In Miami, the start of the free-agent period was called “We Want Wade” week, including a move by officials to ceremonially rename the county from Miami-Dade to Miami-Wade. By week’s end, the Heat got Wade and a whole lot more. “There’s no question about it, they become the fa-

It’s on to Miami: After several seasons with the Toronto Raptors, Chris Bosh is joining up with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade to play for the Miami Heat. Bosh is credited for setting the scenario in which fellow free agents Wade and James decided to join each other in Flordia. vorites along with Boston to win the East,” Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy said. “The East has certainly gotten better. It’s not getting any easier. You have three guys, AllStars, in the prime of their career. That’s a heckuva team to match up against.” The possibilities are endless, already getting scrawled on the white boards in Heat coach Erik Spoelstra’s office. Wade at shooting guard, James at small forward, Bosh at power forward. Each routinely sees doubleteams, and that will continue. But unless the NBA starts allowing Miami opponents to play with at least six guys, then Wade, James and Bosh all can’t have two defenders draped around them at once. That’s where Bosh could flourish, those around him say. “When Chris was in high school, he didn’t even say he was the best player on his team,” said Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt, who had Bosh on his team for one year before the then-teenager jumped to the NBA. “And they went 40-0 and won a national championship. That’s who he is. It’s not about who gets credit for what.” Playing in Toronto wasn’t exactly been a path to superstardom for Bosh. The Raptors — who have ravenous fans in their own city — simply haven’t drawn much attention in the United States, mainly because of a lack of postseason success (Bosh has never reached the second round of the NBA playoffs) and that they’re just not on television as much as the glitzier clubs. That’ll change now. Oddsmakers in Las Vegas al-

ready are saying the Heat are favorites to win the 2011 NBA title. “Just with us coming together, it’s going to be out there,” Bosh said of the immediate pressure to win. “So we just have to be prepared for that and we have to stay behind each other, keep each other standing tall and just support each other and that’s all it’s about. When you’re having tough times, you rely on your friends, you rely on your teammates to pull you out of it.” Bosh might only seem like the ‘other guy’ in this Heat star cluster. No, he doesn’t have the MVP trophies like James and the championship ring like Wade. Make no mistake: He can play. Bosh is one of only three players with at least 10,000 points, 4,500 rebounds and 600 blocked shots over the last seven seasons, joining Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan. He’s averaged a double-double in three of his seven years, and coming off a season where he put up career-highs of 24.0 points, 10.8 rebounds and 52 percent shooting. And James is already letting Miami know, this team isn’t being built as a one- or two-man operation. “This is not just all about D-Wade and C.B. and LeBron,” James said. “It’s about the whole team. It’s about the whole organization, starting from the top to the bottom.” Bosh has been at the bottom for too long, never getting remotely close to an NBA title. In Miami, thanks to his decision, he’s got that longawaited chance to finally see the top.

Fowles leads U.S. team past WNBA All-Stars Former LSU star scores 23 points in 99-72 victory VIN A. CHERWOO Associated Press

UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Sylvia Fowles stole the spotlight from the UConn reunion at the WNBA AllStar game. F o w l e s scored 13 of her 23 points in the third quarter and the U.S. national team beat the WNBA All-Stars 99-72 on Saturday in this year’s version of the league’s midseason showcase. Fowles shot 9 for 11 from the field and grabbed eight rebounds, earning the MVP


award in a game that had six former or current Huskies players on a U.S. team led by Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma and played about 30 miles south of the school’s campus. “They’re on this team for a reason,” said Fowles, a former LSU standout. “They’re great players. ... They play well together. They have that chemistry. They know what they want and they know how to win. Just to be a part of that crew, it makes you feel good.” Candice Dupree and Swin Cash had 13 points apiece, UConn senior Maya Moore added 12 and Angel McCoughtry 11 for the U.S. Katie Douglas had 15 points, Penny Taylor scored 12 and Sophia Young added 10 for the All-Stars. Fowles was dominant

over the first 6½ minutes of the second half, shooting 5 for 6 from the field, 3 for 4 from the free-throw line and grabbing five rebounds. The Chicago Sky center converted a layup with 3:38 to go in the third to make it 68-37, the U.S.’s biggest of the game. “Syl did a great job,” U.S. and Seattle Storm guard Sue Bird said. “She’s such a dominant player, you saw it. She can get every rebound if she wants. She can score 20 points a night if she wants.” The All-Stars triedtomake a run in the fourth quarter. Young scored six points, Taylor had five and Lindsay Whalen four as the WNBA used a 17-6 run to pull to 81-61 with 6:12 remaining. But that was as close as it got down the stretch.
