Beef producers won’t face new regulations due to brucellosis BY PAOLO CISNEROS THE SHERIDAN PRESS

SHERIDAN — Despite mounting concerns that area elk may have contracted brucellosis — an abortion-inducing disease that can easily be transferred to cattle — the Wyoming Livestock Board’s state veterinarian isn’t ready to expand regulations for beef producers. At a meeting Monday hosted by Moxey Schreiber Veterinary Hospital and held at Sheridan College, a team of veterinary science and wildlife management experts said while the situation is no doubt serious, state and federal agencies are doing everything possible to protect Wyoming ranchers and their ability to make a living. For now at least, that means cattle producers won’t face additional hurdles when it comes to exporting their calves. “At this point in time that is not being discussed,” said Dr. Walt Cook, brucellosis coordinator at the University of Wyoming. Instead, state agencies are looking to push voluntary testing and community efforts to keep herds physically segregated from elk and the bacteria that causes the disease. Cook said a united effort on the part of ranchers is particularly important since vets in other states would be within their rights to place restrictions on the importation of Wyoming beef. The discovery of brucellosis antibodies in area elk caught state officials off guard since Wyoming, along with every other state in the nation, has been recognized as brucellosis-free since midway through the 20th Century.

Local runner at Boston Marathon recounts tragedy BY KRISTEN CZABAN THE SHERIDAN PRESS

Editor’s note: The Associated Press contributed to this report.

SHERIDAN — In addition to strength and conditioning training, many long-distance runners will tell you that mental toughness is key to completing a race. No amount of training could have prepared runners like Sheridan’s Del Acker for what happened Monday. Two bombs blew up seconds apart at the finish line of one of the world’s most storied races, leaving the streets spattered with blood and glass, three dead, more than 140 wounded and gaping questions of who chose to attack at the Boston Marathon and why. “Boston is a resilient city but it is too early to tell,” Acker said of the atmosphere in Boston Monday night. Acker communicated

with The Press via email as cell phones were not working in Boston Monday night. Acker ran his 12th consecutive Boston Marathon Monday, finishing in three hours and 40 minutes — not his best time, but faster than last year when temperatures hit 90 degrees. Acker said he finished about 40 minutes before the bombs exploded. His wife, Peggy, always cheers from the sidelines during the race, but had already headed to the family meeting area to catch up with Acker after the race. “We first heard the emergency vehicles as we were leaving the area and didn’t know what had happened until we dashed into a downtown hotel to watch first news reports on local television,” Acker said.

Development proposal nixed BY HANNAH WIEST THE SHERIDAN PRESS

SHERIDAN — At the April 1 City Council meeting a controversial development on the corner of Brundage Lane and Big Horn Avenue was tabled for later consideration. Since that meeting, the developer of Skyview West, a proposed 76unit apartment complex consisting of one-, two- and three-story units, has withdrawn the conceptual plan that would have required a planned unit development. Phoenix Limited Partnership, owned by Kim Love, intends to change the plans, according to a notice of withdrawal submitted to Mayor Dave Kinskey on Thursday. The new plans will maintain the current R-3 Residential zoning, which has been contested by nearby landowners who say one tract of the land was never officially rezoned and should be R-1. Love has asked that the city deal with a petition brought by more than 200 nearby residents in May 2011 asking for the land to be officially re-zoned back to R-1. SEE PROPOSAL, PAGE 8


because of the philanthropy we have in this community. We’re very fortunate.” The Foundation is approaching 40 years of service to the Sheridan community, according to Executive Director Ada Kirven. It was founded in 1976 to bring philanthropy to the hospital and to enable administrators to focus on health care rather than fundraising efforts to expand services.

SHERIDAN — Sheridan City Council approved a resolution inviting Ranchester, Dayton, Clearmont and the Sheridan County commissioners to begin the process of proposing projects to be funded by the Capital Facilities Tax at its regular meeting Monday. Once projects are approved, the city, county and area towns will set funding needs for each project to determine the total amount to be raised by the tax. That amount and the specific purposes it will be used for will then go before voters on the November 2013 ballot. “The Capital Facilities Tax is a specific purpose tax that is set for a dollar amount,” city Clerk Scott Badley said. “It runs the length it takes to either complete the projects or collect that amount of tax.” The tax is a sales and use tax that cannot exceed 2 percent per dollar.

SHERIDAN — Without it, cancer, cardiac, kidney and emergency care would be less comprehensive services offered at Sheridan Memorial Hospital.

By the numbers: FROM STAFF REPORTS

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Memorial Hospital Foundation has been instrumental in supporting hospital services since its beginning in 1976. It has contributed more than $30 million to the hospital, bolstering heart, cancer, kidney, diabetic, emergency and overall patient care. • One day’s wages: An unofficial campaign in the 1950s in which community members were asked to help build a new hospital building. • 5: Original number of volunteer board members. The

board has expanded to include at-large community members and physician, auxiliary volunteer and hospital board representatives. • 83: Number of Foundation members in 1991. • More than 1,500: Number of Foundation members in 2013. • 32: Number of Sheridan College students who have received a nursing scholarship through the Foundation’s scholarship program since 2002.

Griffith

program at Sheridan College, an employee partner program to get employees invested in supporting the hospital, expansion of the Griffith Memorial Emergency Department, addition of the Watt Dialysis Center and addition of the Welch Cancer Center. “I’ve always found that if you have a worthwhile project, people understand the importance of it and are willing to step up to the plate to help out,” Ringley said. “The Foundation just keeps getting stronger and stronger. I am positive it will continue to be successful and support Sheridan Memorial Hospital in the best possible way.” In recent years, the Foundation has focused on improving critical care in Sheridan. The Cardiac Catheterization lab has served more than 50 patients since opening in January, and efforts are underway to expand the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital. “From birth to the end of life, we’re here to support families and loved ones through those difficult times and through those good times,” Kirven said.

Our website mishap — why it happened, timeline of events, an apology FROM STAFF REPORTS

SHERIDAN — Our website has been in the ditch, as the saying goes. Under repair. We messed up, we know it and we are in the process of remedy. Today, we launch again – a new website, what we call, version 2.0. This is an apology for all the hassles, a timeline of events, an explanation of what happened and what’s ahead as we move forward. In late 2011, The Sheridan Press decided to upgrade its first-ever website. The old one was a bit of a clunker and wasn’t flexible to the demands of an ever-growing online readership. We went from a basic online presence, to a site that was designed, hosted and supported by an Illinois-based company, TownNews. That website upgrade gave the Press the ability to post photo galleries, provide breaking news, video reporting and many other features. It was a step forward. As time passed, however, we became frustrated with customer service issues, communication difficulties and we wanted to “go local” with our online media. Ptolemy Data Systems, our tech-

TAX:1 percent FROM 1 Sheridan’s current Capital Facilities Tax is one cent and is set to be collected by June 2014. The renewed tax would also be 1 percent. The most recent Capital Facilities Tax, passed in 2009, was set at $25 million. Representatives from the city, county and area communities met Monday to discuss project ideas such as a natural gas line in Ranchester and Dayton, county road and bridge projects and city capital improvement projects. Additional meetings and public outreach efforts will be held this spring and summer. In August, a resolution approving the proposed tax must be signed to place the tax on the ballot.




City approves pathway, striping bids BY HANNAH WIEST THE SHERIDAN PRESS

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan City Council voted Monday to extend Sheridan’s pathway system and improve city streets by installing longer lasting striping. The Sheridan College pathway extension project will run from Coffeen Avenue at the Sheridan College north entrance to Brundage Lane across from South Park, passing through the land behind Starbucks and running along Wetlands Drive. Schoeny Inc. will install sidewalk along Wetlands Drive and 3,300 feet of pathway from Wetlands Drive to Coffeen Avenue at the entrance to the college. The bid for the pathway portion was $107,461.70. NST Construction was award-

ed a bid for $73,922.55 to build fences along Wetlands Drive and along the western boundary of the pathway to protect the property from uncontrolled access. Mountain View Builders will construct wood plank bridges to protect wetlands areas in two locations. The bid for the bridge portion was $52,275. TEAL Ponds, LLC, donated the right of way needed for the pathway to Sheridan College. The city has allocated Optional One-Cent Sales Tax and public benefit funds for the project. City Council also awarded a bid for $97,825 to Streamline Markings of Billings, Mont., to install thermoplastic striping at six intersections. These include: Big Horn Avenue at Edwards Drive and Big Horn Avenue at Brundage

Lane, North Sheridan Avenue at East Fifth Street and South Sheridan Avenue at East Brundage, Highland Avenue at West Fifth Street and South Main Street at Burkitt Street. City staff currently paint stripes at these intersections twice a year at a cost of $19,000. After the initial cost of installing the thermoplastic striping, city staff will place new striping every five years for $20,000 to $25,000. The striping will be similar to what the Wyoming Department of Transportation placed on Main Street and Coffeen Avenue, said Joe Schoen, project manager. “As Papa used to say, ‘Let’s work smarter, not harder,’” Mayor Dave Kinskey said about the project.

CHEYENNE (AP) — A judge in Cheyenne has granted Wyoming’s first retrial based on DNA evidence. Andrew J. Johnson has served more than 23 years of a life-inprison sentence after being convicted of breaking into a Cheyenne woman’s apartment and raping her in 1989.

Keown is an author, consultant and educator on tribal relations, with degrees in forestry and natural resource management. As a federal official, he collaborated and consulted with numerous American Indian tribes on the development of a historical preservation plan for the nationally renowned Medicine Wheel sacred site in Wyoming, as well as providing advice to other agencies on management of sacred sites around the country. Keown has counseled numerous government agencies and corporate entities in the process of building successful relationships with American Indian tribes, and has trained thousands of government and corporate leaders at his tribal relations seminars throughout

Of film………. The Jackie Robinson biopic, ’42,’ now showing at the Centennial Theatre is worth a look. It’s the story of Robinson’s breaking of the color barrier in Major League Baseball in 1947 and the racism and ostracism he and his wife, Rachel, who is still alive and graceful at 90, faced. Says writer Kostya Kennedy: “The fact that Robinson played in the major leagues made he marquee and drew the crowds, but it was how he played that reformed prejudice and delivered the more cogent blow to ignorance and hate.” Mrs. Robinson says actor Chadwick Boseman captured her late husband’s “dignity” and “got the (batting) stance right.” Both Mrs. Robinson and former Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Ralph Branca were involved in the movie as advisors. Surprisingly, it’s the first film about Robinson in 63 years. In 1950, Robinson played himself in a low-budget production. There’s a couple of “calculated” exaggerations but for the most part, it’s faithful to the books by Arnold Ramperstad and others. It doesn’t cover any of the other nine seasons he played with the Brooklyn Dodgers or his post-baseball life where he was involved in business, civil rights causes and was a Republican Party activist. Harrison Ford just nails the part of Branch Rickey. It’s a good movie, fersure. •••••• Jody Sauers, director of the Sagebrush Artists’ Guild, sent a shout how the gallery is having a gallery reception on Thursday, April 18 beginning at 5 p.m. The Sagebrush Gallery is located in the old train depot on E.

Paul’s rough day at Howard


ea party titan Rand Paul, visiting Howard University on Wednesday, told students that he had been called "either brave or crazy to be here" at the historically black college. Probably some of each: brave, because he's trying to sell himself and fellow Republicans to African-Americans, a singularly resistant demographic; and crazy, because he based his pitch on revised history and airbrushed facts — and the Howard kids weren't fooled. "No Republican questions or disputes civil rights," the senator from Kentucky proclaimed. "I've never wavered in my support for civil rights or the Civil Rights Act." Howzat? As a candidate in 2010, Paul questioned the constitutionality of the Civil Rights Act's Title II, which prohibits private discrimination. "I don't want to be associated with those people," he said when MSNBC's Rachel Maddow asked him about private businesses that refuse to serve black customers, "but I also don't want to limit their speech in any way in the sense that we tolerate boorish and uncivilized behavior because that's one of the things freedom requires." Asked by the moderator at Howard to explain his claim that he never spoke out against the Civil Rights Act, Paul provided the creative rationale that he was talking "about the ramifications of certain portions of the Civil Rights Act beyond race, as are now being applied to smoking, menus, listing calories and things on menus and guns." Paul acknowledged that his wooing of African-Americans "is an uphill battle," and his hour with the students confirmed this. Talking about the Republicans' historical support for civil rights, he said: "I'll give you one example. The first, one of the AfricanAmerican U.S. senators was a guy named, uh, I'm blanking on his name, from Massachusetts — " "Edward Brooke!" several in the audience called out. "Edwin Brookes," Paul repeated. The students broke out in hysterics. The laughter had barely subsided when Paul posed a question. "If I were to have said, 'Who do you think the founders of the NAACP are?' ... would everybody in here know they were all Republicans?" "Yes," several could be heard grumbling. "Of course they would," one woman informed him. Paul dug himself in deeper. "I don't know what you know," he said. They knew enough to be suspicious of his central argument: that Abraham Lincoln's Republican Party is the same Republican Party that now dominates the South. This analysis glossed over the

civil rights era, when Democrats and Republicans essentially switched sides as Southern Dixiecrats left for the GOP. "Democrats in Louisville were led by Courier-Journal DANA Editor Henry Watterson and were MILBANK implacably opposed to | blacks voting," Paul argued. Watterson died in 1921. "Meanwhile," he continued, "Kentucky's Democrat-controlled legislature voted against the 13th, the 14th and the 15th amendments." In the 1860s. A student questioner sought clarification. "Are we discussing the Republican Party of the 19th century?" he asked, to applause. "Or are we discussing the post1968 Republican Party?" "The argument I'm trying to make is we haven't changed," Paul proposed. The Howard students weren't hostile to the senator as much as indifferent. Campus police swarmed outside the hall and erected barricades, although they proved unnecessary. Doors opened an hour early, but seats didn't fill up until the last minute, and many spent their time texting and fanning themselves in the overheated hall. "My hope is that you will hear me out," Paul asked, and all appeared to — except for senior Brian Menifee, who raised a hand-lettered banner announcing that "Howard University Doesn't Support White Supremacy." Police threw him out roughly, and other students cheered. But Paul got no cheers for most of his ideas: criticizing Democrats' "unlimited federal assistance," calling privateschool choice "the civil rights issue of our day" and saying that "there are Republicans who don't clamor for war." He did better with his proposal to repeal mandatory minimum sentences but he drew boos when he defended voter-ID laws. "I come to Howard," Paul said, "to say I want a government that leaves you alone." He argued that "objective evidence shows that big government is not a friend to African-Americans." Freshman Keenan Glover disagreed. "I want a government that's going to help me," he said. "I want a government that's going to help me pay for my college education." "We can disagree," the senator said, then upgraded his pessimism. "Probably, we're going to end up disagreeing." DANA MILBANK is a political reporter for The Washington Post and has authored two books on national political campaigns and the national political parties.

mid all the heated, emotional advocacy of gun control, have you ever heard even one person present convincing hard evidence that tighter gun control laws have in fact reduced murders? Think about all the states, communities within states, as well as foreign countries, that have either tight gun control laws or loose or non-existent gun control laws. With so many variations and so many sources of evidence available, surely there would be some compelling evidence somewhere if tighter gun control laws actually reduced the murder rate. And if tighter gun control laws don't actually reduce the murder rate, then why are we being stampeded toward such laws after every shooting that gets media attention? The dirty little secret is that gun control laws do not actually control guns. They disarm law-abiding citizens, making them more vulnerable to criminals, who remain armed in disregard of such laws. In England, armed crimes skyrocketed as legal gun ownership almost vanished under increasingly severe gun control laws in the late THOMAS 20th century. (See the book "Guns and SOWELL Violence" by Joyce Lee | Malcolm). But gun control has become one of those fact-free crusades, based on assumptions, emotions and rhetoric. What almost no one talks about is that guns are used to defend lives as well as to take lives. In fact, many of the horrific killings that we see in the media were brought to an end when someone else with a gun showed up and put a stop to the slaughter. Many people who have never fired a gun in their lives, and never faced lifethreatening dangers, nevertheless feel qualified to impose legal restrictions that can be fatal to others. And politicians eager to "do something" that gets them publicity know that the votes of the ignorant and the gullible are still votes. Restricting the magazine capacity available to law-abiding citizens will not restrict the magazine capacity of people who are not law-abiding citizens. Such restrictions just mean that the law-abiding citizen is likely to run out of ammunition first. Someone would have to be an incredible sharpshooter to fend off three home invaders with just seven shots at moving targets. But seven is the magic number of bullets allowed in a magazine under New York State's new gun control laws. Banning so-called "assault weapons" is a farce, as well as a fraud, because there is no concrete definition of an assault weapon. Some people may think that "assault weapons" means automatic weapons. But automatic weapons were banned decades ago. Banning ugly-looking "assault weapons" may have aesthetic benefits, but it does not reduce the dangers to human life in the slightest. You are just as dead when killed by a very plain-looking gun. Leniency toward criminals has long been part of the pattern of gun control zealots on both sides of the Atlantic. When the insatiable desire to crack down on law-abiding citizens with guns is combined with an attitude of leniency toward criminals, it can hardly be surprising when tighter gun control laws are accompanied by rising rates of crime, including murders.

Alaska-based military policeman gets 16 years in spy case JOINT BASE ELMENDORFRICHARDSON, Alaska (AP) — An Alaska-based military policeman will serve 16 years in prison and will be dishonorably discharged for selling secrets to an FBI undercover agent who he believed was a Russian spy, a panel of eight military members has decided. Spec. William Colton Millay, of Owensboro, Ky., pleaded guilty last month to attempted espionage and other counts. He was sentenced Monday. Military prosecutors painted him as a white supremacist who was fed up with the Army and the

United States, and was willing to sell secrets to an enemy agent, even if that would cost fellow soldiers their lives. Defense attorneys said Millay was emotionally stunted, was only seeking attention and was a candidate for rehabilitation. Monday’s proceedings were like a mini-trial conducted in front of the sentencing panel, with both sides calling two witnesses. FBI Special Agent Derrick Chriswell said Millay came to their attention in the summer of 2011 through an anonymous tip after Millay sent an email to a

Russian publication seeking information about the military and made several calls to the Russian embassy. “That’s a concern for national security,” Chriswell said. The FBI, working with military intelligence agencies, conducted the investigation. On Sept. 13, 2011, an FBI undercover agent called Millay and set up a meeting the next day at an Anchorage hotel-restaurant. Chriswell testified that during the first meeting with the agent, Millay “expressed his disgust with the U.S. military.” They then

moved to the agent’s hotel room, where audio and video recording devices were in place. Millay, 24, said he’d work for the Russian government, and if they made it worth his while, he’d reenlist for a second five-year stint. He also said he had confidential information on the Warlock Duke jamming system the U.S. military uses to sweep roadside bombs. Two days after that meeting, Millay reported to his commander that he had been contacted by a Russian agent. He was later interrogated by military intelligence officers and the FBI.

Secretary of State Kerry visits family of slain U.S. diplomat CHICAGO (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry stopped in Chicago on Monday to visit the parents of the young U.S. diplomat who was killed while delivering textbooks in southern Afghanistan earlier this month. Kerry made the detour on his way back from Japan, the final leg of a 10day overseas tour which started with tragedy when he learned of Anne Smedinghoff ’s death while readying to depart for Turkey on April 6. At the time, a clearly affected Kerry contacted Smedinghoff ’s parents, Tom and Mary Beth, from Andrews Air Force Base. On Monday, he flew in directly to see them and Smedinghoff ’s three sib-

lings. Smedinghoff was just 25 when she and four other Americans were killed while walking from a military base to a nearby school. Two explosions occurred, apparently a suicide car bombing followed by a roadside blast. An FBI investigation is in its preliminary stages. The diplomat’s father, Tom Smedinghoff, says the Kerry visit was only the latest by people in the U.S. diplomatic corps who reached out to the family. “It really reinforces for us that Ann was part of a very close-knit family of very dedicated people who are serving our country,” he said. Kerry told embassy staff in Tokyo that Smedinghoff

was “full of idealism and full of hopes, taking books to children in a school so they can learn.” She was “wiped out by terrorism — the worst kind of nihilism,” he said. “It doesn’t stand for anything except killing people and stopping the future,” Kerry said. “And so we’re not going to be deterred. We’re going to be inspired. And we’re going to use Anne’s idealism as another motivation.” Kerry declared the protection of American foreign service officers his top priority when started as secretary of state in February, and Smedinghoff ’s death is the first of an American diplomat since militants attacked a U.S. diplomatic

installation in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, killing Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The young woman’s death came just two weeks after Kerry met her while on a visit to Afghanistan. Smedinghoff served as his control officer, an honor often bestowed on up-andcoming members of the U.S. foreign service. Smedinghoff, who grew up in River Forest, Ill., was on her second tour of diplomatic duty. She served previously in Venezuela. The attack also killed three U.S. service members, a U.S. civilian who worked for the Defense Department and an Afghan doctor. Three other diplomats were injured. The most

serious is Kelly Hunt, a public diplomacy officer, who is being treated at a U.S. military base in Germany.

WHY PUBLIC NOTICES ARE IMPORTANT | Public notices allow citizens to monitor their government and make sure that it is working in their best interest. Independent newspapers assist in this cause by carrying out their partnership with the people’s right to know through public notices. By offering an independent and archived record of public notices, newspapers foster a more trusting relationship between government and its citizens. Newspapers have the experience and expertise in publishing public notices and have done so since the Revolutionary War. Today, they remain an established, trustworthy and neutral source that ably transfers information between government and the people. Public notices are the lasting record of how the public’s resources are used and are presented in the most efficient and effective means possible.

Hello Doggy Marcia McChesney rubs Tinker Bell, a miniature schnauzer and unofficial greeter at the free workshop Saturday “All about Tomatoes” at Landon’s Greenhouse.

1988 — The Little Bighorn River made a conservation group’s list of the nation’s 10 most endangered rivers in 1988. The list is published annually by American Rivers, an organization dedicated to adding rivers to the national Wild and Scenic River system. 2003 — When their jail architect said, “Pick a plan and just stick with it,” the Sheridan County commissioners did just that. They threw out the idea of locating temporary detention facilities at the Road and Bridge shop or in modular housing units and went with a permanent structure that, as Commissioner Charley Whiton said, “will keep on giving.” 2008 — Sheridan County commissioners authorized for another seven years a $4.50-per-ticket passenger facility charge collected by the Federal Aviation

Administration at Sheridan County Airport — and which the county would lose without the authorization. 2012 — Tongue River High School seniors Nate Plymell and Payton Gibson and Big Horn High School seniors Ben Gilmore and Alexa Blare were named prom kings and queens Saturday night at a joint Big Horn-Tongue River prom held at Sheridan’s Kalif Shrine Temple. FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Today’s Highlight in History: On April 16, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote his “Letter from Birmingham Jail” in which the civil rights activist responded to a group of local clergymen who’d criticized him for leading street protests; King defended his tactics, writing, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice

PROPOSAL: Developer wants city to address the petition from neighbors FROM 1 That petition was tabled and was not addressed while compromises for the development were discussed, eventually leading to the proposed PUD that has now been withdrawn. “Part of my request has to do with the fact that we have asked the city to dispose of that petition, one way or the other, that came before them,” Love said. “We want the city to take it off the table and vote on it one way or another. I’m nervous about that legal cloud hanging over it.” Love said if the city decides to approve the petition and rezone part of his property to R-1, he will sue the city for damages. “We did everything we were legally supposed to. As far as I’m concerned, we didn’t do anything underhanded. I bought a piece of property. There was an issue. We went to court, and the court filed in our favor,” Love said about a declaratory judgment that ruled both tracts of property were R-3 as indicated on a city zoning map. Love said he wasn’t sure when plans for the new development will be resubmitted for consideration.





Last day at the mine

Big Horn Ear, Nose and Throat hosting screening

Veteran employee retires from male-dominated profession



DECKER, MONT. — As machine operators and managers went about their business last Thursday, a melancholy air hung around the offices of Spring Creek Coal Mine just north of Sheridan. Out in the field, Joyce Neal — a woman affectionately known by her coworkers as Granny — was putting in her last shift as a shovel operator after three entire decades at the mine. “It’s a wonderful job,” Neal said during a break that afternoon. “I’m going to be sad when I leave.” At 72 years old, Neal was not only the oldest employee on payroll at Spring Creek, but also one of only 15 women employed at the facility. Nearly 260 people currently make their living at the mine. A Wyoming ranch girl whose experience working the land led to a familiarity with large machinery, Neal said the Spring Creek environment had always been welcoming for her and the handful of other women she’s worked with over the course of her 30 years on the job. While she can’t say for sure why so few women enter the profession, Neal said she imagines that some might be intimidated by the enormity of the machinery they’re charged with handling. Still, she said her gender never put her at a disadvantage when it came to fitting in. “They’ve taken care of me since the day I came out here,” she said. “The people out here are special.” In the hours leading up to the end of her time at the mine, facility managers said Neal played a crucial role in shaping the unique employee culture that developed at Spring Creek in recent years. “We have (other) people that have the skills Joyce has, but you can’t replace the person,” said Manager of Site Production Erik Strom. “She’s developed these people to be good, productive coal miners.” Looking back on the years, that’s an accomplishment Neal never envisioned for herself. She came to Spring Creek early in the 1980s, looking simply for a way to provide for her children. Recently divorced, she and her sis-


Shovel operator Joyce Neal retired last week after 30 years at Spring Creek Coal Mine. She was one of only a handful of women on the 257-member crew. ter both set out looking for work at around the same time. Eventually, Joyce was hired at Spring Creek and her sister took a position down the road at Decker Mine. The sisters, originally from Meeteetse, learned quickly that mining work suited them well. “We both are ranch girls and we wanted to be outside,” she said. Starting in the plant, Neal held several positions over the course of her tenure at Spring Creek, but it wasn’t until she worked her way into the role of shovel operator that she felt she had finally found her place. “I love my shovels,” she said plainly. Her enthusiasm wasn’t lost on her bosses who, several years ago, promoted her to step-in supervisor for the occasions when the higherups were out of town. Now a resident of Wyola, Mont., Neal’s dedication to her profession was the subject of much admiration from management during her final weeks at Spring Creek. “It’s sad,” Human Resources

Manager Jean Fox said of Neal’s retirement. “She’s a huge part of this team.” Looking ahead, Neal said she plans on spending her newfound free time gardening, becoming more actively involved with her church and — perhaps most excitingly — taking a cruise to Alaska this summer with her sisters. Still, she knows she’ll miss the mine. “In mining, (your coworkers) become your family,” she said. “I come to work, and I’m home.” She said she plans to visit every now and then when she’s not off on a new adventure. It’s a promise her bosses hope she keeps. As Neal’s time at the mine winded down late last week, they said her legacy will remain forever etched on the history of the facility. “We’re not sure, but we think Joyce may have loaded more coal than any employee at Spring Creek ever,” Strom said. “She’s the basis of what Spring Creek has always been.”

SHERIDAN — Community members who think they might have allergies are invited to make an appointment for a simple allergy screening test to be held at Big Horn Ear, Nose and Throat. The test will take about 45 minutes and will test for several standard allergens. In the case of a positive test, options for a more extensive follow-up screening test will be available at a discount for those who participate in the screening clinic. There are certain medication restrictions to follow five days prior to the screening so see the Big Horn ENT website at for specific instructions. According to Dr. Cheryl Varner, the spring months are the time that seasonal allergies are often experienced. “There are options available for treatment, but sometimes just knowing what causes your allergic reactions is enough to be able to prevent symptoms,” Varner said in a press release. Common symptoms of allergies include runny nose, sneezing and red, swollen or watery eyes. The cost of the clinic is $15 to be paid at the time of the appointment. Appointments will be April 22-26. To schedule an appointment contact Big Horn Ear, Nose and Throat at 675-4646 by Wednesday. Big Horn Ear, Nose and Throat is an affiliate of Sheridan Memorial Hospital and is located at 1416 W.

Reporter shares account of bomb blasts in Boston JIMMY GOLEN ASSOCIATED PRESS

EDITOR’S NOTE: Boston sports writer Jimmy Golen was covering his 18th Boston Marathon when he heard the bombs go off at the finish line. This is his account of how it unfolded. BOSTON (AP) — This year’s Boston Marathon had seemed so normal. The winners were a man from Ethiopia and a woman from Kenya, and even runners two hours behind raised their arms as they finished, ecstatic just to have made it to the end of one of the most grueling 26.2-mile marathon courses. Volunteers were on hand to catch those who collapsed as they crossed the blue and yellow finish line. Spectators cheered not just for family members but for every “Dan” or “Alan” smart enough to write his name on his shirt. Then I heard the first blast. I turned to see gray smoke billowing from the north side of Boylston Street and rising over the photo bridge at the finish line. A few seconds later came another blast. I did what I was trained to do: I called the office and told them what little I knew: “There were two explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.” I wouldn’t be able to get through on my cellphone again for hours. I texted my wife to tell her I was safe, though she didn’t know what had happened yet. No one did, really. It could have been a gas explosion, but even without an explanation it was clear that people were hurt. The second blast made it likely they were intentional, and it made me worry that there could be more. I walked toward the damage, more than anything else because I felt it was no more dangerous there than anyplace else in the area. Race workers in yellow volunteer jackets and police in yellow safety vests were running past me. EMTs carried their gear or pushed empty wheelchairs, followed soon by doctors in their white volunteer jackets. Runners continued to run, stopping their watches as they crossed the finish line, now confused as well as tired. I saw people crying. Runners and volunteers and family members. Police began clearing the area. I saw people turned away, pleading with officials to get through so they could see their family members. I saw two people in civilian clothes carrying a woman, who was not wearing running gear, with one arm over each shoulder and one leg in each arm. Blood was gushing from her leg. A Boston police officer went by, pushed in a wheelchair. His pants had a small tear near the ankle, and blood was dripping from his heel. Ambulances and police vehicles sped down

Boylston into the foot traffic. It seemed obvious that the worst injuries were still to come. Unable to get through on my cellphone, I went back to the media workroom so I could communicate with my editors on my laptop. The building would soon be sealed. I was stuck there for the next five hours, unable to report on the scene of the disaster, unable to leave. Reporters covering the marathon generally work from race headquarters in the Fairmont Copley hotel. It is a lush ballroom with a fresco ceiling and plaster frieze and large arched and curtained windows that, on Patriots Day, are blocked by a 6-foot high, 30-foot long tracking board that updates the media on the progress of the race. It can be a sterile way to experience what is often an exciting occasion.

I got up to walk it off. In the bathroom, a Boston police officer was at the mirror, wiping the tears from his reddened eyes. I patted him on the back but said nothing. I got back to my laptop and kept working.

Time to get serious

Jimmy Golen

From his first-hand account of Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings

I had grown familiar with the pace of the day: a slow buildup to the finish, then a flurry of activity as a series of winners — first the wheelchairs, then the women and men — arrived in Copley Square. I could usually count on things to settle down by midafternoon. After my stories are edited and sent on The Associated Press wire, I like to head out to the course get a feel for how the day went. I remember last year the smell of sunscreen and the steady parade of competitors being ushered or wheeled to the medical tent to be treated for dehydration. This year’s race didn’t seem to offer any of the usual sidelights: neither unusual weather nor a surprising American contender nor even the question of trying to figure out whether the Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot of Kenya who won in 2010 was related to the Robert Kipkoech Cheruiyot of Kenya who had won four times before. I went looking for a friend who was expected to come in around that time. I walked through the VIP stands, trying to keep one eye on the course and one on the stands, where her family would be waiting. SEE BOSTON, PAGE B6

Rested and ready, Manning kicks off 2013 ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The arm: rested. The receiving corps: restocked. Peyton Manning returned to Broncos headquarters Monday, starting voluntary workouts with his group of receivers, which now includes Wes Welker, formerly the top target for Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The 37-year-old quarterback was working with a few of his teammates a week ago at Duke, where the quarterback’s former college coach, David Cutcliffe, ran a mini-camp of sorts with Manning, his brother, Eli, and an assortment of Broncos and Giants receivers. After taking two months away from football — about a month more than he’d hoped for — Manning, like any quarterback, was happy to have given his arm a rest. But, he said, it’s hard to gauge the way he feels this spring compared to last. He conceded he isn’t sure if he’ll ever get back to where he was before the neck surger- Manning ies that cost him the 2011 season. “Whether that’s possible or not, I’m probably never going to know the answer until I stop playing,” Manning said. “I’m never going to stop trying to get back to that point. I actually made some improvements since last year but still have a plan with the trainers, a plan with the strength coaches.” As last year progressed, Manning declared himself fit enough for NFL action — both with his words and his play on the field, where he threw for 4,659 yards and 37 touchdowns, both the second-best totals in his career. His final game, in the playoffs against Baltimore, wasn’t one of his best, however. In 13-degree weather, Manning threw two interceptions, lost a fumble and fell to 0-4 lifetime when starting games where the temperature was 40 degrees or less. As the season progressed, he admitted that the feeling in his throwing hand hadn’t fully returned. He wore an orange-andgray glove to try to help him with his grip. But as much as he practiced with the glove, he acknowledged there wasn’t much he could do to simulate a real-life situation in the freezing cold. It hasn’t gone unnoticed that this season’s Super Bowl will take place outdoors in New York. It also didn’t go unnoticed that his first week of 2013 workouts in Denver were greeted by temperatures in the 30s and a spring snowstorm bearing down. Good practice for Manning, one of the most meticulously prepared quarterbacks in the game. Figuring out the timing with receivers under all conditions, good and bad, is a full-time job, not simply one that starts and ends during “football season.” SEE MANNING, PAGE B6

BORN LOSER® by Art and Chip Sansom

WHEN LOVE HURTS BY MICHAEL ROIZEN, M.D., AND MEHMET OZ, M.D. Cher, Kim Carnes and Emmy Lou Harris all recorded the 1961 Roy Orbison song "Love Hurts," lamenting the pain of a broken heart. But that was years ago, and by now they, and 50 million other postmenopausal women in the U.S., may be dealing with the physical realities that accompany the great hormone shift -- including love that hurts. Over 70 percent of women 60-69 years old who have a steady partner report having sex a few times a month or more. But 25 percent to 40 percent report painful intercourse. That's because a lack of estrogen causes vaginal atrophy, or thinning of the

tissue. Estrogen is needed to keep membranes and skin supple and strong. So here are some tips to ease that discomfort. --Stay physically active. Regular exercise can relieve menopausal symptoms (hot flashes), improve overall health (a big plus for feeling sexy) and keep pelvic muscles toned (that keeps orgasms strong). --Eat foods that promote strong, healthy skin. Pomegranate and sunflower

seeds, guava, red peppers, Brussels sprouts, olive oil and walnuts boost collagen. Adding 900 IU of algal-oil DHA omega-3 daily is a great move. --Try safe estrogen-based therapies: Topical creams, vaginal tablets and the estrogen ring deliver relief, and the hormone isn't (much) absorbed into the bloodstream. Make sure to ask your doc about taking two baby aspirins daily if you're trying ANY estrogen therapy. --Also, ask your doc about risks and benefits of a new Food and Drug Administration-approved medication: ospemifene, a SERM (selective estrogen receptor modulator) that relieves painful intercourse by enhancing estrogen activity in some tissues.

FRIEND'S CELEBRATION MAKES WOMAN'S BIRTHDAY UNHAPPY DEAR ABBY: I was raised that a person's birthday is his or her day to do whatever he or she wants, but my wishes are being ignored by a close friend I'll call Wade. For the last 10 years I have ignored my birthday and tried to avoid all celebrations. I'll take a vacation alone and have a great time. My family understands how I feel and gives me no grief. I met Wade five years ago. He's a co-worker who has become a good friend. Wade has made it his goal in life to make me celebrate my birthday. I have tried being nice about the presents and even a surprise birthday party one year, but I really prefer to be left alone. I never told him my birth date. He had access to HR records and found out on his own. He says I am "rude" for not letting him celebrate my birthday. Other than this issue, he's a great guy. Advice, Abby? -- NONOBSERVANT IN FLORIDA

DEAR NONOBSERVANT: Wade may be a "great guy," but he appears to be insensitive when it comes to respecting the feelings of others. Before your next birthday, "remind" him that you prefer not to celebrate or acknowledge it. A good friend should listen and respect the other person's wishes instead of trying to impose his or her will, and don't be shy about saying so. DEAR ABBY: I am one of four sisters. Two of my sisters, their husbands and I want to plan a trip to Italy. We do not want to include our fourth sister and her husband. None of us like him or can forgive how he abused her in the past. For her sake, we tolerate him at family gatherings and holidays, but none of us want to be with

him for an extended period. We also don't think his health would allow him to do a lot of the things we want to do on this vacation. How do we plan this trip while excluding our sister and her husband without hurting her feelings or causing a big family blowup? Should we just not mention it? Or should we tell her she's invited but not her husband? Please advise. -- SIS IN A PICKLE DEAR SIS: Secrets like this have a way of getting out. It might be a slip of the tongue by one of your sisters or their husbands, or some other relative who knows about the trip. Surely your sister knows how you all feel about her husband, so it won't be a shock if you tell her she is invited but he is not. Under the circumstances I doubt if she will join you, and there will probably be hurt feelings. But sneaking this past her would be like trying to smuggle dawn past a rooster, and I don't think it would be long before she finds out anyway. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for nine years. I worked until 2010, and then quit to be a stay-at-home mom to our two small children. Because I no longer work, I watch what I spend, but my husband never lets me forget that he is the wage earner. When I want to spend money he always says, "What's in it for me?" or, "What do I get?" I feel like this degrades me. Why does he do this to me? -STAY-AT-HOME MOM IN GEORGIA DEAR STAY-AT-HOME MOM: Your husband may say it because he feels stressed or resentful that he is the sole wage earner now. The first time it happened you should have responded that "what's in it for him" is that his children have a full-time mother, which the majority of children today don't have, and "what he gets" out of it are offspring who have a mother rather than a caregiver raising them.

Collins resigns as 76ers head coach after team misses playoffs PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Doug Collins is on his way out as Philadelphia 76ers’ coach. It remains to be seen if he’ll stick with the organization in some other role. A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press the Collins and the Sixers are trying to resolve their relationship after the coach told them he would not return for a fourth season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the issue has not been settled. The person said both sides spent the day working toward an agreement that would keep Collins in the organization in some capacity or free him from the club.

Two people with knowledge of the situation said Collins told the Sixers on Sunday night he would not return next season. All three people who spoke to the AP say management wanted Collins to return and he was under no pressure to step down. Collins is owed $4.5 million in the last year of his contract. Team president Rod Thorn was already set to step aside after this season, leaving open the possibility Collins assumes some front office control. The Sixers are 33-47 and in ninth place in the Eastern Conference a year after they won 35 games and a round in the playoffs in last year’s lockout-shortened season.

The Sixers finish out the season Monday in Detroit and Wednesday in Indiana. Collins not did address his future with the team on Sunday. Collins, a four-time All-Star with the Sixers, returned to the franchise in 2010 and led them to the playoffs in each of his first two seasons. After falling one win shy of advancing to the Eastern Conference finals last season, the Sixers shook up the roster and made the bold move to acquire All-Star center Andrew Bynum from the Los Angeles Lakers. Collins would have likely returned had Bynum panned out and kept the Sixers in contention

with numbers close to his career highs 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds set last season with the Lakers. Instead of helping the Sixers get ready for a playoff run, Bynum never played for them because of bone bruises in both knees. He had season-ending arthroscopic surgery on both knees last month. Bynum earned $16.5 million this season and is set to become an unrestricted free agent. Bynum’s agent, David Lee, refused on Monday to discuss possible contract terms for next season. But he said Bynum would be “ready to go” for training camp. Lee said Collins’ leaving as coach did not change the way

Bynum viewed the Sixers and the All-Star center would be open to a return, if the franchise is interested. Bynum is set to shed his crutches on Friday and begin the next phase of his rehabilitation. Lee said there are no plans for Bynum to return to Germany for the Orthokine blood-spinning treatment in his knees that other professional athletes have sought. He understood why Sixers fans were upset with Bynum after several target dates for a return came and went. “The experience has been a positive one, except for the outcome,” Lee said by phone. “It’s regrettable, but this unfortunately happens in professional sports.”

Hints from Heloise Magazines on the Move Dear Heloise: Last time I moved, I lost all of my MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTIONS because magazines do not get forwarded by the post office, and I forgot about calling customer service while busy with the move. I just moved again and didn't want that to happen this time. Before throwing out my most recent issues, I clipped off the address labels, which contain my account number and subscription information, then taped them to the inside cover of my address book. After I moved, I went online and was able to easily change my address with each magazine using my subscription information. I lost only one issue for each magazine, as it takes about six weeks for the change to go through. -- A Reader, via email The U.S. Postal Service sends magazines and periodicals BACK if they don't have a change-of-address form. You can do a change of address by getting the kit at your post office or filling one out online. It also is possible to suspend your mail and then have it re-


sumed when you get settled; this way, you won't miss a magazine. And keep in mind that it usually takes between seven and 10 days to receive mail that has been forwarded. -- Heloise P.S.: Call the customer-service line listed in the magazine to alert the company about your new address. PACKAGE SHREDDINGS Dear Heloise: If you send packages and if you use a shredder, stuff some of the shredded paper into zippered bags (you can use various sizes, whatever the need) and use them in your packages. Rather than using regular popped popcorn (Heloise here: A reader suggested using popcorn in zip bags, then the recipient could eat the popcorn, too!), eat the popcorn and go for the shredded paper. Works great! -- Ingrid Capriotti, Arlington, Va. 'GRATE' PEELINGS Dear Heloise: I grated the peel of an orange to put in my homemade orange-cranberry sauce. I had to go to the store for another ingredient and left the grated orange peel on the

counter, uncovered. When I returned, I found that my entire condo smelled like freshly scented orange. This is a lot less work than boiling orange peel, etc., to scent your home. It's an easy way to get rid of bad odors or freshen your home! Just grate some orange peel and let it sit out in a bowl! -- Rusti Stover in Houston FLU-SEASON CAUTION Dear Heloise: During the flu season (which can last through late spring -- Heloise), waiting rooms in doctors' offices and hospitals have posted precautions to minimize further spread of diseases. One precaution is to avoid reading magazines, newspapers, etc., that you may find there. This will keep you from picking up a virus that has been left by a previous reader, and will eliminate you as a source of contamination. Instead, bring your own reading materials. -- Perry Crabill, Winchester, Va.

GO FOR THE CHANCE THAT YOU HAVE Aristotle said, "All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire." At the bridge table, you desire to make or break the contract, using reasoning and various habits -- hopefully all good. And sometimes you have to go for any chance that you have. In this deal, West has to decide what to do when defending against one no-trump. He leads his fourth-highest diamond. South takes East's nine with his king and plays the spade queen. West ducks, but is in with his ace at trick three. What should West do now? An aggressive East would have made a three-club weak jump overcall on the first

round. Then South would probably have made a negative double, giving North a headache. The winning action would have been to pass, which would have netted 100 or 300. If East had balanced over one no-trump with a two-club bid, South would presumably have continued with two spades, which would have probably ended down one after the diamond-nine lead from East. Who has the diamond jack? It must be South -- do not be fooled by his falsecard at trick one. East was playing third hand high and the best he could do was the nine. Similarly, South has the diamond ace, giving South 10 highcard points. So, if West

Omarr’s Daily Astrological Forecast BIRTHDAY GUY: Actor William Mapother was born in Louisville, Ky., on this date in 1965. This birthday guy is probably best known for his recurring role as Ethan Rom on "Lost." He's also guest-starred on episodes of "American Horror Story," "Justified" and "The Mentalist. " Mapother is the cousin of superstar Tom Cruise and has appeared with his famous relation in "Mission Impossible II," "Born on the Fourth of July" and "Magnolia." ARIES (March 21-April 19): Rather than working harder, work smarter. Short-term projects will roll along if you planned ahead of time. Put schemes into motion that require thoughtfulness or that use

imagination and ingenious talents. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Garner a lesson from graffiti. If the writing is on the wall, the time is ripe to take a scrub brush and clean it off. Take care of loose ends before someone can point a finger at your scattered energies. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): When expectations are high, be sure to fulfill them. Fires burn themselves out without enough fuel. Remain focused on the doing the things that receive notice from others and engage your enthusiasm. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Everything happens for a reason, even if you aren't wise enough to know it yet. You might be torn between the need for quick action

leads another diamond, South must take at least nine tricks. The only chance for the defense is to run the clubs. West must shift to his club king and continue with his second club. Here, East and West take one spade and six clubs for down one.

and the need to follow a checklist or a set of sluggish regulations. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Time is on your side. There is no need to rush. If you make a pledge or a promise, others will expect you to faithfully fulfill it both today and next week. Earn merit badges for mastering a new skill. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can show two sides without being two-faced. Be super-efficient and meticulous when balancing the bank account, but remain completely relaxed when alone with your favorite companion. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.22): You can't pay the rent with an argument. Rather than bristling at someone's overbearing competiveness or

Jeraldine Saunders

feeling defenseless when faced by someone's rudeness, simply get on with the job. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You aren't a spoon and life isn't coffee, so don't stir things up. Conflicting personalities or a lack of warmth from others might temporarily deter you from a business plan. You can't have it both ways. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Enjoy the comforts of home and family. You might stumble upon some much-needed inspiration or receive wise advice that solves a financial conundrum. Avoid participating in risky activities. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Trust makes the world go around. When you emit confidence in someone

else's abilities, he or she is more likely to prove you right. If you add fuel to baseless suspicions, they could be set on fire. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If you make a list of everything that can go wrong, you can also make a list of everything that can go right. You won't find a $20 bill on the sidewalk or an opportunity unless you look for it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You have to wake up first to make your dreams come true. Put the pedal to the metal to pursue your goals. You can easily earn or attain whatever you can visualize. Watch out for thoughtless spending. IF APRIL 17 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Right now, your ambitions are getting

in the way of your success. In May, there is a tendency to be caught up in an impossible dream or to become involved in a relationship that isn't quite what it seems. Wait until June, when both opportunities and sound advice are available, to make major changes or decisions. By then, you may be able to spin straw into gold, or at least have much better judgment, so anything you initiate should turn out for the best. Your hard work and determination may pay off with increased recognition or improved circumstances in October.

As I reached the end of the bleachers, I saw her run past. “Go, Laura!” I shouted, and wove my way back toward the finish line, flashing my media pass to get onto the course. I caught up with her and walked with her while she picked up a bottle of water. We had barely crossed Dartmouth Street, less than a block from the finish, when we were shaken by the first explosion. I had been through bomb scares before; I remember that my venue was evacuated during the Salt Lake City Olympics, five months after Sept. 11, 2001, because someone left a backpack behind. There’s a twinge of fear, but it’s more of an inconvenience for a reporter on deadline because they’ve all been false alarms until now. Nothing was like hearing rumors that another bomb had been found “in a nearby hotel” while I was holed up in a nearby hotel. I paced around the lobby looking for someone in authority to talk to and bumped into Greg Meyer, the 1983 champion and the last American man to win. He said he ran the race with his sons and had finished a few minutes before the blasts. People outside Boston, people who aren’t runners, are likely to think of the Boston Marathon as a sporting event, but it is really at least four different events at once. There is the elite athlete race, the one shown on television that usually ends with a Kenyan handed a silver trophy and crowned by an olive wreath. There are the recreational runners who train for years to make the qualifying time, then spend another year preparing for the hilly trip from Hopkinton to Boston’s Back Bay. There are the runners who get into the race by promising to raise money for charity — a tradition that has collected more than $128 million over the past 25 years. And then there is the 26.2-mile parade in which hundreds of thousands line

the course on Patriots Day, when schools and many businesses are closed for the day. “This is an event that brings people together. Not this kind of stuff,” Meyer said. “I don’t get it.” Maybe it’s the day off from work, or maybe it’s the fact that everyone knows someone who is running, but the people of Boston — not necessarily the sports fans, but the people who live here — take pride in the marathon. First run in 1897, when about 15 local runners drew a line in the dirt at Metcalf ’s Mill out in Ashland, it is the longest-running annual race at the distance and, most agree, the world’s most prestigious. The field has grown to include women and wheelchairs and thousands of runners who struggle to qualify for it — just once. In 2011, registration closed in a record eight hours. The fastest before that had been 65 days. I don’t know what will happen next year. I don’t know if runners will avoid the race, uncomfortable to be celebrating at the site of so many injuries. I don’t know if fans will stay away out of fear. As I finished my stories, TV reported that an 8-year-old child was one of those killed. I thought of the people from Newtown, Conn., running in memory of the 26 killed there in December. Organizers scheduled a 26-second silence at the start and dedicated the 26th mile to the victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School. I got up to walk it off. In the bathroom, a Boston police officer was at the mirror, wiping the tears from his reddened eyes. I patted him on the back but said nothing. I got back to my laptop and kept working. At 8 p.m., someone came over and clicked off the race clock. The 2013 Boston Marathon was over. And something else — I’m not sure what, but something that certainly seems bigger than sports — was about to begin.

MANNING: Receiving core bolstered by Welker FROM B2

He knows it won’t be easy to replicate what Brady and Welker built over six years in a matter of months. “Every repetition with him will be important,” Manning said. “Certainly, I think he provides some unique things. He’s got unbelievable quickness, he’s excellent with the ball in his hands on those screen passes. You’ve seen him getting upfield quickly and I’ve always felt he’s had a nose for the end zone.” Manning said he can tell Broncos Vice President John Elway is trying to create an “uncomfortable atmosphere” for a team that went 13-3 last year but was dumped out of the playoffs by Baltimore in the divisional round. “Last year was good but it wasn’t great. And we’re looking for a great season,” Manning said, nearly echoing the words of both Elway and Broncos owner Pat Bowlen in the aftermath of the Baltimore loss. In addition to Welker, Elway signed guard Louis Vasquez to shore up the offensive line. He also went after cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, defensive lineman Terrance Knighton and linebacker Stewart Bradley. All pieces of a puzzle, with designs on helping this team — with an aging-but-talented core — take the final step. “You lose at the end of the season, you

want to find ways to get better, period, whatever it takes,” said cornerback Champ Bailey, heading into his 15th season. Denver lost defensive lineman Elvis Dumervil in a bizarre deadline-fueled fax foul-up. Meanwhile, Welker’s addition means it’s less likely that one of Manning’s favorite teammates, Brandon Stokley, will return, though the quarterback wasn’t completely giving up on that. “I hope it’s not necessarily a closeddoor discussion,” Manning said. Regardless, Manning’s receiving corps figures to be one of the most dangerous in the league. Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas each had breakout years last season, Thomas with 1,434 yards and Decker with 1,064. Both are heading into their fourth year as pros. Both figure to benefit from having Welker there to occupy defenses. Manning needs to take advantage of the situation sooner rather than later — a reality he’s very much in touch with as he enters his 16th NFL season. “I’ll be long out of eligibility by the time these guys really hit the peak of their careers because they’re both young players,” Manning said. “But I’ve really enjoyed working with them and seeing them develop, and both of them got better last year. And both can be even better this year, I believe.”

Nuggets Faried to miss final two games with sprained ankle DENVER (AP) — Three weeks ago, Denver Nuggets coach George Karl marveled at his team’s depth, suggesting, “we can even sustain injuries and be OK.” The Nuggets have been testing that theory ever since. First, point guard Ty Lawson went down with a painful right heel injury. Then, forward Danilo Gallinari was lost for the season with a torn left ACL, and on Sunday top rebounder Kenneth Faried sprained his left ankle and needed his teammates’ help leaving the court. X-rays were negative and an MRI on Monday confirmed there were no fractures but a sprain of the “anterior talofibular” ligament. Faried didn’t make the Nuggets’ trip to Milwaukee and he won’t play in the’ regular season finale against Phoenix on Wednesday, either. He’ll be listed as day to day when the first round of the playoffs begins next weekend.

This counts as very good news for the suddenly injury-prone Nuggets, who were remarkably healthy until their recent run of bad luck. Although Lawson returned to action Friday after missing eight games, Gallinari is done for the year. Faried, who is averaging 11.5 points and a team-best 9.2 rebounds and has 31 double-doubles, initially feared he had a more serious injury, too. He was hurt Sunday when he stepped on the foot of Portland Trail Blazers rookie Will Barton while driving for a layup. Karl said he usually gauges the seriousness of an injury by looking at the player’s face, but Faried covered his face while writing in pain on the hardwood and then put a towel over his head when he was helped from the court and then wheeled to the locker room for Xrays. Faried said he had never felt such pain and initially feared a more serious injury but vowed to play in the playoffs.
