Addressing mosquito abatement Fish and Wildlife to meet with county commissioners Tuesday ■

BY EMILY THORNTON The World

COOS BAY — The extra buzzing in and around Bandon has not caused any serious health problems, but folks are getting tired of the pesky mosquitoes. Amy Fraser lives about 3 miles from the Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, where the insects have the highest numbers. She said she’s lost work this year because of the problem. The landscaper said she’s never seen so many mosquitoes. “I’ve been leaving jobs because it’s so infested,” Fraser said. She hasn’t been ill from the problem, but getting so many bites was irritating. “I’d literally go to my garden and get 20-30 bites,” Fraser said. Nikki Zogg, director of public health for Coos County, said people should take measures to protect and themselves decrease the mosquitoes. A health advisory released Thursday By Emily Thornton, The World said there were five A mosquito feeds near mosquito species, Bandon Marsh National some of which are Wildlife Refuge. known to transmit diseases to humans or animals. There have been no reported diseases so far. However, a 9-year-old girl was treated with steroids by her primary care physician for an allergic reaction to bites. The salt marsh species is the most prevalent and is a day-biter, Zogg said. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service personnel trapped 5,000 mosquitoes in a 12-hour time period at the beginning of August, Zogg said. “To have that number is unprecedented,” Zogg said. Zogg will address the Coos County commissioners on Tuesday regarding the issue. She has been working with the Fish and Wildlife Service and other officials to rectify the situation. “We stand ready to work with the county health department to take whatever action is needed, up to and including abatement,” said Megan Nagel, public affairs officer for Fish and Wildlife. Nagel said the county just needed a special use permit. “They are going to allow some type of abateSEE MOSQUITOES | A8

Explosion in Mingus Park Detonation near controversial cross leads to cancellation of meeting Tuesday ■

BY THOMAS MORIARTY The World

COOS BAY — Coos Bay’s city manager says he plans to cancel a public meeting to discuss a contested war memorial cross in light of an explosion near the memorial Thursday night. Roger Craddock said Friday afternoon that he plans to cancel Tuesday’s scheduled meeting at the Coos Bay Public Library regarding the Mingus Park Vietnam War Memorial cross. “This is going to aggravate an already emotional situation,” Craddock said. “Time has a healing effect.”

Police believe the incident occurred between the hours of late Thursday night and early Friday morning. In a press release, Coos Bay police Chief Gary McCullough said the department was notified of criminal mischief at the memorial by city parks workers that morning. Further investigation revealed that the damage was possibly caused by an improvised explosive device. Friday afternoon, McCullough and his officers were busy combing the scene with the help of two Oregon State Police explosives specialists from Central Point. According to the Coos Bay police log, dispatchers were startled by a loud boom near city hall around midnight and took multiple calls from resi-

The family have cared for cats and kittens since the end of March, when groups of the furry animals turned up around their neighborhood.

Egypt has erupted into chaos. Syria is still in the thralls of conflict, the rest of the middle east is on the verge of going to war with their neighbors, Russia is thumbing their nose at America over the Snowden situation. In our own country we see unemployment, scandals, poverty, and etc. That’s the bad news. Nothing is more depressing than being faced with this on a daily basis. Pick up the newspaper, turn on the radio or the television and you begin to wonder if there is anything good going on in our world. There is a lot of good taking place, but it does not get the notice like the bad news does. Do you think maybe we are just too focused on the negative that we cannot see the positive? Why is it that bad stuff gets spread so quickly when many of us would rather see and hear the good stuff? God has given each of us twenty four hours in a day, and it’s up to us to determine how we will spend that time. May I suggest today, that you shut out the negative and begin focusing on the sights and sounds of God’s creation. Come worship with us Sunday.

Locals should head for the Coos Bay boardwalk early this morning to take advantage of free rides on the train throughout the day Saturday. The event notes completion of a major phase of the $31 million Coos Bay Rail Line Rehabilitation project. Additionally, it marks restoration of freight rail service between Coquille and Eugene. This capital project of

the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay has been a long time in coming. The port authority picked up the rail line in 2009 after its owners up and quit two years earlier. What followed was a major capital fundraising strategy, combining federal and state grants and loans. Looming before the authority was the task of repairing nine tunnels, 118 bridges, 147 culverts, 255

public and private crossings and 111 miles of track. The rails finally started running on a limited basis in October 2011. By April of this year the entire line was open and starting to move freight. This isn't on the scale of, say, Cornelius Vanderbilt. Just the same, getting this rail system running again is just one more important boost to the county. And we can

always use that. So, get out to the boardwalk today. The line will have two passenger cars that will take you on a round trip past historic Front Street, past the construction site of the Coos Historical and Maritime Center, past the shipping terminals and the Mill Casino-Hotel and on to the North Bend boardwalk. Enjoy the ride.

What’s under the kilt? Got to hand it to the Coastal Celtic Society for their boat-building project at the Coos Bay Boat Building Center. They are recreating the currach, a traditional wooden boat dating from a century ago and still used on the western coasts of Ireland. What better way to keep culture alive than with a hands-on project like this.

Copper copping . . . How brazen can you be — cutting down power lines to steal the copper? And now thieves are even stealing railroad spikes? That’s a real mental giant who risks his own skin and places others in jeopardy like that. Just as reprehensible are the low-lifes who are buying the pilfered metals; like they don’t know where the goods came from.

Take a break, coach Gold Beach prep football coach Kevin Swift has built a superior team over nearly two decades. He deserves a break, and he’s taking it. This will be his last season, at least for a little while. With two state titles, a slot in the quarterfinals every season since 2004 and an overall record of 116-64, Swift certainly earned it. He'll stay on as school athletic director.

Smack! II All fingers seem to be pointing to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as the main cause of the mosquito swarms that have overwhelmed parts of Bandon this summer. At least that was the consensus at the special city council meeting Monday where residents vented. Sounds like any USFWS representative would’ve been pilloried, deserving or not. But to not show up at all? You federal folks better have something up your sleeve.

Public Forum Keep cross where it is The traveling Vietnam wall came to the bay area in March of 1997. It was on display on the SWOCC campus. The names of 30 of our finest Coos County young men are included among those engraved on the Wall. 10 from Coos Bay; six from Myrtle Point; four each from North Bend and Coquille; two each from Powers and Bandon; one each from Charleston and Lakeside. Go to www.facesfromthewall.com/orvn/orccoos.html for some photos and the biographies of these heroic young local men who gave their lives serving our country. They are more than a name on a Wall. Listen to, and look up, the lyrics of the Statler Brothers recording of the same name. Judgment day is approaching. I understand a group of attorneys have volunteered to defend the city without

charge in keeping the Mingus Park Memorial where it is. I have also heard that there are groups in our country who have contributed funds to aid communities facing similar battles. Decision time is here. On Aug. 27 the city council will decide whether to fight or retreat. Our heroes on the wall did not retreat. They expect/deserve the council to do no less. God bless America and those who served. Ed Kim Coos Bay Editor’s note: This meeting was cancelled following Friday’s incident.

Quit calling on government All I hear everyday is how the government intrudes in and controls our lives, too much so for most, including myself. I've been bit and stung by every bug, insect and critter on the planet, over a lot of the planet. Not once, ever, have I contacted any level of government for help. Too much government? Then quit calling them! Can anyone take care of themselves at all anymore? Lemmings, the cliff is over there. Mitch Lewis Bandon

More questions In the article “Breaking Ground”, I have some questions: 1. I always thought wetlands were to be protected. What will happen to the creatures who live there? 2. Say there are six people to each duplex, times 676 homes, that equals 4,056 people in 69 acres. Isn’t that crowded living? 3. There are no jobs in Coos Bay. Where are these people going to work? 4. According to the article, the units will be rented to the under-employed. Are these people already receiving food stamps and boxes of food? How can they buy a house? 5. There are not enough doctors or dentists in Coos Bay. Is this development going to bring in more medical personnel? 6. There are already many homes for sale in this area. 7. With all the extra traffic on Ocean Boulevard, won’t another traffic signal be required? Who will pay for it? The state, the city, or the taxpayers of Coos Bay? 8. I feel these questions should be answered. Barbara J. Tarbox Coos Bay

Who owns the future? In the near term, bet on the men with the guns. The Egyptian Army, being slowly squeezed out of its central role in the nation’s life by Mohammed Morsi, waited for the moment to oust the elected president and crush his Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi was deposed and arrested, and the Brotherhood leaders rounded up and jailed. Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, gazing into his mirror, must see Col. Gamal Abdel Nasser gazing back. In the near term, the Brotherhood is in disarray. It backed the Arab Spring, heeded America’s call for free elections, and won parliament and the presidency, only to have the army, with America’s backing, overthrow its Islamist government in a military coup. If the Brotherhood feels betrayed, if it believes its sons who opposed the coup died as martyrs, if it has concluded that the Americans, with their endless blather about democracy, are duplicitous hypocrites, are they entirely wrong? In the short term, America must get on with the generals.

For it is they who bottle up Hamas in Gaza, battle al-Qaida in Sinai, protect the Christian Copts, grant our Air Force o v e r f l i g h t PAT rights and our BUCHANAN Navy first-inline transit Columnist rights through the Suez Canal. And it is the generals who continue to honor the terms of the Camp David accords. Looking back, of all the forces unleashed by the Arab Spring, the Facebook-Twitter crowd calling for secular democracy harvested the greatest publicity. But even then, other forces seemed to have deeper and broader roots in the hearts and minds of the masses. Those forces: tribalism, nationalism and Islamism. The generals may work handin-glove with the Israelis. But anti-Zionism remains one of the few rallying cries that can unite secularist and Islamist, Sunni and Shia.

And as the Jews have been expelled from the Arab world, today it is the turn of the Christians. And after the Jews and Christians are gone, it is likely to be the turn of the Americans. Why? First, the Americans are seen as standing behind Israel’s regional superiority and dominance of the Palestinian Arabs. Second, while we defend our wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as liberations from dictatorship and obscurantism, they are seen over there as America using her power to impose upon these nations our institutions and our ideology. And while America’s achievements may inspire awe, America’s culture, suffused with feminist and Hollywood values, evokes revulsion. Third, there is a growing confidence in the Islamic world that the future belongs to them. It is not unreasonable for Muslim visionaries to see the next 500 years as an era of Islamic ascendancy, as the last 500 saw a Western ascendancy. Fourth, while Eygpt’s army has the guns and, temporarily, the banner of patriotism, it has no faith, no philosophy, no ideology to justify an indefinite hold

on power. Indeed, this is America’s dilemma. Millions of Muslims are willing to fight to drive us out of their part of the world. How many Americans are willing to send our sons to die for secular democracy and American values in their part of the world? After World War II, when communists captured the banner of nationalism, they were on the move in China, Vietnam, Cuba. When Ronald Reagan recaptured the banners of nationalism in Angola, Afghanistan and Eastern Europe, suddenly it was the communists on the run. Ethnonationalism and religious fundamentalism tore apart the British, French and Soviet empires. All are working now against the U.S. Imperium. The generals in Egypt won this round. But is there any doubt as to which way the wind is blowing? Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”

Obituaries Attitude check is needed DEAR ABBY: I am in my late 20s and have been with my boyfriend for more than two years.We are serious,having lived together for a year, and we discuss marriage often. We make all our major decisions and purchases together and are generally very happy. The problem arises when his children from a previous relationship are around (he shares custody with his ex). I am overwhelmed by them. They are very needy and have some minor manner problems. I am uncomfortable with all the attention they demand of me. They are literally always in my space, trying to sit on my lap or show me something, DEAR etc. It gets to the point where I just want to get a w a y . Sometimes they’re OK and we have some fun, but it’s the d ow n t i m e JEANNE PHILLIPS at home that is annoying. I am ashamed writing this, but I need some advice because the kids are obviously not going away. Will they grow out of this? It’s making me question if I can remain in the relationship. — BOTHERED IN BUFFALO DEA R BO T H ER ED : You need an attitude adjustment. I don’t think you realize what a compliment it is that the children compete for your attention and want to be close to you. A way to deal with this could be to arrange to have one-on-one time with EACH child while your boyfriend spends time with the others. It is very important that they spend quality time with their father. If you and he agree that their manners need tweaking, it shouldn’t be too difficult to set a good example, and praise and reward them as they improve. When they grow older, they will develop interests of their own and be less needy. But for now, it is important you work on being patient, show the children you care about them — and let your boyfriend know when you need a timeout. Everyone does. DEAR ABBY: My 26-yearold son has been going with a 23-year-old woman off and on for a year and a half. He has tried to break off the relationship several times. Last weekend she played the “I’ll kill myself” card when he told her he wanted to move on. I take any threat of suicide seriously. However, she is holding this over his head. I need the right words to use to talk to him about her threat. — FEELING LOST IN GEORGIA DEAR FEELING LOST : The woman is trying to manipulate your son using emotional blackmail. He should not attempt to “rescue” her by continuing to see her. During their next conversation, he should let her know the personal responsibility for her well-being is hers and hers alone, and he wants no part of it. If he feels she is truly a danger to herself, he should notify her family so they can help her get the psychological help she needs. D E A R A B B Y : Can you please tell me what women are looking for? I keep being told that they feel so “safe” with me, it’s like dating their brother. They know I won’t force them into doing anything they don’t want to do. — PUZZLED IN NEW MEXICO DEAR PUZZLED: It looks like the women you’re asking out may have been dating men who forced them into doing things they didn’t want, or may be trying to tell you politely that their interest in you is only platonic. It’s time to ask some married friends what is causing women to react to you this way. Having been through the dating scene, they should be able to give you some helpful input.

children, MaKenzie and Aaron Marineau; and her nieces and nephews will miss her humor, her wisdom and her steady supportive presence. Sylvia was a homebody who did not like to or feel the need to travel and explore. While they both doted on their family, Sylvia and Donald did like to get away for weekends periodically. One of their favorite places was Yachats. Sylvia was a collector. Her watch collection included more than 200 separate and unique watches! She could wear a different watch every day for more than six months. Her shopping trips often resulted in additions to her collection. Her friends and family also knew that if they didn’t know what to get Sylvia, they could always get her yet another watch. Sylvia also collected teddy

bears, thimbles, buttonhooks, cookie jars and cat items — cat tennis shoes, jackets, purses, picture frames and even Max, her kitty! Max is certainly going to miss his “mom.” Talented in may areas describes Sylvia. She sewed her daughter Mary’s school clothes, reupholstered her own furniture, and creatively decorated cakes and other desserts. If it was craft-oriented, she could do it! Mary gives the greatest thanks to Team Sylvia, her caregivers. The team loved Sylvia as much as Mary does, and their presence allowed Mary and Sylvia to focus on their mother-daughter relationship. Additional thanks go to South Coast Hospice for their assistance as Sylvia spent her last days at home. Memorial gifts may be made to Pacific Cove Animal Shelter, as she loved her kitties. A celebration of Sylvia’s life will be announced later. Arrangements are under the care of Coos Bay Chapel, 541-267-3131.

June 16, 1919 - Aug. 16, 2013

Sylvia Mary McInturff, 94, of Coos Bay, was born June 16, 1919, in Vancouver, Wash., to parents Joseph Noce and Sabucha Salfaria. With those two Italian parents, Sylvia was certain “all Italian.” She was the last of seven children, the baby of the family, and only the second girl. Sylvia and Donald McInturff met in 1940 in Vancouver, Wash. He swept her off her feet, as they dated every night for two weeks. At the end of the two weeks, when her mother wouldn’t let her visit Donald in Madras, they decided to get married. They settled in the Reedsport area, where they enjoyed their growing family. Sylvia and Donald were happily married for 35 years, until Donald died in an on-the-job accident at only 52. Sylvia spent the last 33 years in Coos Bay, near her daughter, Mary. She was preceded in death by her husband, Donald Eugene McInturff, her siblings and their spouses. Her children, Jeff McInturff and Cheryl and Mary Marineau and Jeff; grand-

Forest Service to take back timber funds BY BECKY BOHRER The Associated Press

JUNEAU, Alaska — The U.S. Forest Service plans to take a portion of the timber payments it has promised or paid out to 22 states, citing federal budget cuts. Collection letters from Forest Service Chief Thomas Tidwell went out to governors around the country Monday, saying money would be taken from funds used for habitat improvement and other national forest-related projects that put people to work under the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act. Oregon stands to lose the most in the move, with nearly $4 million in reductions. That would leave the state with about $3.4 million under that program. California would lose nearly $2.2 million, leaving it with about $1 million for the program. Idaho is set to lose $1.7 million, Montana nearly $1.3 million and Alaska, about $930,000 — nearly half the total allotment it had been expecting. Earlier this year, Tidwell sent letters to 41 states, asking for the return of $17.9 million in timber payments used to pay for schools, roads, search and rescue operations in rural counties and conservation projects. “We regret having to take this action, but we have no alternative under sequestration,” Tidwell said in his letter to Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell, dated March 19. Alaska was given the option of having about $826,000 the state had received or expected under

the act reduced from its socalled “Title II funds,” for habitat improvement and other projects, or getting a bill for the money that had already been paid out under other sections of the act. Parnell refused, saying there was no basis in law for the request. It wasn’t immediately clear why the agency was taking a greater share of funds from Alaska now. Parnell spokeswoman Sharon Leighow said by email that the state will be exploring all options to address the agency’s actions, “as an individual state and in concert with other states.” The Western Governors’ Association, in a letter to U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack in May, said the budget act that triggered the automatic federal budget cuts, known as sequestration, does not include language authorizing “retroactive application of the spending reductions or limitations. Nor does it contain language requiring reimbursement of funds that were already distributed in order to satisfy spending limitations.” The Forest Service falls under the Department of Agriculture. The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the Forest Service was diverting $600 million from other areas to put toward wildland firefighting efforts. Agency spokesman Larry Chambers said the Forest Service had been dealing with the issue of collections under the Secure Rural Schools act since March, “well before any decision was made regarding transfer of fire funds.”

Hikers rescued near Multnomah Falls PORTLAND (AP) — A group of six hikers has been rescued from an area near Multnomah Falls after getting lost on the trails. The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office said the hikers were rescued Thursday afternoon. Authorities say the group had gone out for a day hike on Wednesday on the trails above Multnomah Falls and got lost on the way back down. The hikers ended up stopping on a steep incline and called for help. The group included one adult and five teenagers. The adult and two teenagers were from Grass Valley while two other teenagers was from Gladstone and the other teenager was from Oregon City. The sheriff’s office says the hikers are in good condition with a few scrapes and bruises.

Nation Obama plays down US intervening in Syria

The Associated Press

Actress Gabrielle Union and Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., sit on stage Friday at the Newseum in Washington at the unveiling of a U.S. Postal Service stamp commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

50 years after King, marchers gather again in Washington WASHINGTON (AP) — Next week, the nation’s first black president, a living symbol of the racial progress Martin Luther K ing Jr. dreamed about, will stand near the spot where King stood 50 years ago and say where he believes this nation should be headed. Then, like King, President Barack Obama will step away from the hulking Lincoln Memorial, and return to where this nation is now. As civil rights activists pause to consider the great strides toward equality that the 1963 March on Washington helped to spur, they also look at the current political

and racial landscape, and wonder: How much of that progress is now being undone? This march anniversary comes just two months after the Supreme Court effectively erased a key anti-discrimination provision of the Voting Rights Act, unleashing a string of restrictive voting laws and rules in several states. The court also raised the bar for consideration of race in university admissions, and made it more difficult to bring employment discrimination lawsuits. There are other new issues, such as demands for a federal civil rights prosecu-

tion of George Zimmerman for fatally shooting unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin, and abiding ones, such as persistent unemployment among black Americans that runs at a significantly higher rate than that for whites. “A convergence of things have happened that have exposed ... the fact that we are in a pretty important moment, kind of a democratic crossroads in this country,” said Sherrilyn Ifill, president of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. “Crossroads or not, you have to continue the work of pushing forward.” The observances begin Saturday with a march from

the Lincoln Memorial to the King Memorial, led by the Rev. Al Sharpton and King’s son, Martin Luther King III. They will be joined by the parents of Trayvon Martin, and family members of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old boy who was kidnapped, beaten and shot in the head in 1955 after he was accused of flirting with a white woman. In 1963, marchers arrived by bus, train, car and on foot on a weekday, many dressed in their Sunday best. Although marchers were mostly black, the crowd included whites, Jews, Latinos and Native Americans.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Friday played down the prospect of speedy U.S. intervention in Syria, stressing the difficulty of ordering military action against the Assad government without a strong international coalition and a legal mandate from the United Nations. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Obama has asked the Pentagon to provide military options in light of reports that the Syrian government used chemical weapons against civilians. While Hagel declined to discuss any specific force movements, U.S. defense officials said the Navy moved a fourth warship into the region. Each can launch ballistic missiles.

Washington looks to avert shutdown WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional Republican leaders and the Obama administration are trying to cut a deal that avoids a government shutdown in October while facing what could be an even bigger fight over the nation’s debt ceiling in the rest of the year. An agreement to keep the government operating at current spending levels through October and November would head off a politically costly disruption of federal services but still leave a clash looming, like the one that roiled the economy two years ago, over a possible government default. Neither party has come up with a way out of a debt showdown.

Jump in mortgage rates hurts new sales WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans cut back sharply in July on their purchases of

NATIONAL D I G E S T new homes, a sign that higher mortgage rates may slow the housing recovery. U.S. sales of newly built homes dropped 13.4 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 394,000, the Commerce Department said Friday. That’s the lowest in nine months. And sales fell from a rate of 455,000 in June, which was revised down from a previously reported 497,000. The housing rebound that began last year has helped drive economic growth and create more construction jobs. But mortgage rates have climbed a full percentage point since May. The increase has begun to steal some momentum from the market.

Manning gender sets up legal showdown WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials say Bradley Manning is likely the first transgender military inmate to ask for hormone treatments. And the request could lead to a legal showdown over how — and if — the soldier convicted in the WikiLeaks case will be allowed to live as a female behind bars. The Army Medical Command said Friday it’s dealing with the issue. But a spokeswoman says it would be premature to say there is any movement to offer hormone therapy to all inmates. Manning is serving a 35year sentence at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., for giving classified information to WikiLeaks. It’s a men’s prison that doesn’t offer hormone therapy.

Nasdaq breakdown ramps pressure to take actions WASHINGTON (AP) — The latest high-tech disruption in the financial markets ratchets up the pressure on Nasdaq and other electronic exchanges to take steps to avoid future breakdowns and manage them better if they do occur. The three-hour trading outage on the Nasdaq stock exchange Thursday also can be expected to trigger new rounds of regulatory scrutiny on computer-driven trading. Investors’ shaky confidence in the markets also took another hit. Questions about potential dangers of the super-fast electronic trading systems that now dominate the nation’s stock markets ripple again through Wall Street and Washington. Stock trading now relies heavily on computer systems that exploit split-penny price dif-

Russia urges Syrian officials cooperate with United Nations BY RYAN LUCAS Associated Press

BEIRUT — Russia on Friday added its diplomatic weight to demands for a swift probe into an alleged chemical weapons attack that has injected new vigor into calls for international military action in Syria’s civil war. The U.S., Britain, France and other countries have pressed for a team of United Nations inspectors already in Syria to be granted immediate access to the sites of Wednesday’s purported gas attack that activists say killed more than 130 people. In an attempt to push things along, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is dispatching his disarmament chief to Damascus to press President Bashar Assad’s regime to agree to an investigation. Timing is vital, experts say, because the more time passes, the harder it is to detect what chemicals — if any — were used. Immediate access also would allow inspectors to collect blood and soil samples themselves and safeguard the chain of custody of and the integrity of the investigation. But in the chaos and violence of Syria’s civil war, safe passage to the eastern Damascus suburbs in question would be difficult. That was made clear on Friday, as government artillery on the Qassioun

The Associated Press

A Syrian military soldier checks a man’s identification at a check point on a street, in Damascus, Syria, Wednesday. Syrian opposition groups claimed scores have died in a government offensive near Damascus, attacks in which some activists say regime troops used "poisonous gas." The government denied the reports. plateau overlooking Damascus pounded those suburbs in the heaviest strikes in days. Booms from the artillery echoed over the city every few minutes, along with several rounds of rocket fire that raised flashes of light from the suburbs. At times, three or four plumes of smoke could be seen billowing on the horizon. Syrian opposition figures and activists have reported death tolls from Wednesday’s attack ranging from 136 to 1,300. If confirmed, even the

most conservative tally would make it the deadliest alleged chemical attack in Syria’s civil war. The Assad regime has denied the allegations, calling them “absolutely baseless” and accusing the opposition of staging the whole affair to smear the government and provoke outside intervention. Russia, which is a close ally of Damascus and its most powerful protector on the international stage, also has suggested the opposition of staging the attack to discred-

it the regime. But on Friday, Moscow also called on both sides of the conflict to facilitate an investigation. Deputy Prime Minister Qadri Jamil told The Associated Press on Thursday he was personally in favor of a fair, transparent international delegation to investigate the most recent incident. But he said that would require a new agreement between the government and the U.N. and that the conditions for such a delegation would need to be studied.

Beavers are not alone in QB quandry Five teams in the Pac-12 still haven’t selected their starting quarterback ■

BY ANNE M. PETERSON The Associated Press

The Associated Press

Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion warms up before a game against Utah last fall. Mannion and Cody Vaz are in a battle for the starting job for the Beavers this fall.

The college football season opens next week and five Pac-12 teams have yet to formally name a starting quarterback. Oregon State, Washington State, Colorado, Arizona and USC haven’t made their starters official. In some cases it may just be coaching strategy, but in others the competition is just too close to call. The 25th-ranked Beavers fall into the latter category, with coach Mike Riley still trying to decide between Cody Vaz and Sean Mannion. It looked like a choice was coming last weekend, but then — nothing. “I’m trying not to think about it,” Vaz said about the day-to-day uncertainty. Mannion started Oregon State’s first four games last season but injured his left knee and required arthroscopic surgery. Vaz stepped in and won the next two games, giving the Beavers their best start since they also went 6-0 in 1907. Both were used the rest of the way as Oregon State finished a better-than-expected 94 and went to the Alamo Bowl. Riley said he’ll probably use both in the opener against Eastern Washington on Aug. 31. “I know from a personal standpoint, everybody wants to be named ‘The Guy,’ right?” Riley told reporters this week. “And some would probably profess that it would make it better (to know the starter), that it would help them relax and play better. But this is not a game about relaxing, it’s a game about responding to pressure and playing under pressure.” At No. 24 USC, coach Lane Kiffin still hasn’t decided between Cody

Kessler and Max Wittek, who are trying to succeed Matt Barkley. While Wittek started the Trojans’ final two games last season, losing to Notre Dame and to Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl, Kessler has seemed to be a bit sharper than Wittek in spring ball and summer workouts. “Ideally, we do want to have one quarterback for the starter for the opening game,” Kiffin said this week. “We’re not really a two-system-quarterback program, but at the same time we’ve got to make sure we find the right guy. So I would not rule out anything, but that’s the same thing I’ve said for three weeks.” The Trojans open the season on Thursday night at Hawaii. Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said he may be forced to play two or three players at quarterback in the early games this season. The Wildcats’ apparent front-runner is senior B.J. Denker, who saw some game action — including one start — as backup to Matt Scott last season. But transfers Jesse Scroggins and Nick Isham are also in the mix along with freshman Anu Solomon. “I would like to say we’re sitting here today and it’s clearly defined, the pecking order, but it’s not yet,” Rodriguez said at media day late last week. “It might be going on through the season.” The Wildcats host the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks next Friday night in Tucson. New Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre is also trying to choose between four candidates. While it appears that junior Connor Wood — who entered preseason camp atop the depth chart — is the front runner, junior college transfer Jordan Gehrke, sophomore Stevie Joe Dorman and incoming recruit Sefo Liufau are also being considered. The Buffaloes open with Colorado State on Sunday, Sept. 1. SEE QBS | B2

Mariners manager returns from stroke SEATTLE (AP) — Clean shaven, looking thinner and sounding energized, Seattle manager Eric Wedge was back behind his office desk Friday afternoon It was far better look than a month ago when Wedge was being helped off the field by team personnel in the midst of suffering a mild stroke. “I feel great. I feel better than I have in 10 or 15 years,” Wedge said before the Mariners fell 2-0 in the opener of a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels. “I think it was the perfect storm and a lot of things happened that culminated with that episode I had a month ago. So you make some changes to make sure you don’t get back there.” After a month away, Wedge was anxious about getting back on the bench. It was a month filled with doctor’s appointments and meetings, researching and relaxing, with the goal of figuring out why at 45 years old, Wedge suffered a stroke in the first place and how to prevent it from happening again. It was before the Mariners game on July 22 when Wedge fell ill. Standing behind the cage during batting practice, Wedge first started feeling something wrong in his head, then his legs and his vision. At that point he called for Mariners trainer Rick Griffin, who immediately started helping Wedge off the field. Wedge said by the time he got to the top of the dugout steps he was “dead weight.” Wedge was confused and frustrated at the feeling of having something take over control of his body and not being able to stop it. “Every step we took further I got a little more upset because I didn’t want that to happen,” Wedge said. “Then when I got to the hospital, I knew it was a pretty serious thing.” After a lengthy string of tests it

was determine a day later that Wedge had suffered a mild stroke. And then began the process of meeting with doctors and specialists to determine how to prevent a recurrence. “They made it very clear, they marched them in there one by one before I left the hospital to let me know just how serious this was and how serious I needed to take this,” Wedge said. “It’s a shot across the bow, it’s a mulligan, it’s a heads up. And I’m taking it as such.” Wedge has made changes to his diet and made sure to get more exercise. How he handles stress will be an ongoing battle, considering his profession is stressful by nature. Wedge also said he was diagnosed with sleep apnea, which he believes played a big part in what caused the stroke in the first place. “I mentioned that perfect storm this was a big part of that perfect storm in regards to what happened to me,” Wedge said. Seattle went 13-15 while Wedge was away. He stayed in contact with acting manager Robby Thompson and GM Jack Zduriencik, but just watched games on TV or listened on the radio. Wedge intends on staying with the club for the rest of the season and understands he needs to continue with the changes he’s started. “I never would have thought that I would be able to slow myself down, but when the doctor looks you in the eye and says ‘slow yourself down or else’ you know he’s not joking about it. And then the next doctor comes in and says the same thing, and the next doctor comes in, you know,” Wedge said. “I think when you have intensity and passion and you care so damn much, to a fault maybe, and you’re doing that all day long, eventually it’s going to catch up to you. I think that’s where it ended up with me.”

Portland’s Christine Sinclair celebrates her first-half score against Seattle in their final match of the regular season last Saturday.

Morgan might miss playoff opener Thorns reach playoffs in first year of new women’s soccer league ■

BY ANNE M. PETERSON The Associated Press

PORTLAND — Will she or won’t she? Star striker Alex Morgan’s status is the biggest question for the Portland Thorns heading into Saturday’s semifinal NWSL playoff match against FC Kansas City. Morgan, a U.S. national team standout, has missed the Thorns’ last two games with a sprained left knee. She was injured in a 2-1 loss at Boston on Aug. 7. She’ll make the trip to Kansas City, but her status is officially a game-time decision. The Thorns finished the season 11-6 -5 to advance to the league’s inaugural postseason. Morgan led the team in points with eight goals and five assists. Christine Sinclair,

a star on the Canadian national team and a local favorite from her days playing at the University of Portland, had eight goals and two assists. Sinclair had a pair of goals in Portland’s regular season finale, a 2-1 victory over the rival Seattle Reign. The Thorns face a considerable challenge in FC Kansas City. The Blues claimed the regular season series against Portland 2-1-1. Kansas City is loaded with talent, including Becky Sauerbrunn, the NWSL defender of the year; Nicole Barnhart, goalkeeper of the year; Erika Tymrak, rookie of the year; and Lauren Holiday, the league’s Golden Boot award winner. Holiday, also a U.S. national team standout, had 12 goals in 18 games for FC Kansas City. Five of her goals came against Portland. Formerly known by her maiden name, Cheney, she married New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday in July. Kansas City lost its last two matches after going undefeated

in 10 straight. The Thorns finished with a league-best 6-2-3 road record, outscoring opponents 13-8. The Western New York Flash (10-4-8), with stars Abby Wambach and Carli Lloyd, will host to Sky Blue FC (10-6-6, 36) in Saturday’s other semifinal. If the Thorns and Sky Blue win, Portland will host the championship at Jeld-Wen Field. Sky Blur’s roster includes Sophie Schmidt and Christie Rampone. The eight-team National Women’s Soccer League, in its first season, is a pro league involving the United States, Canadian and Mexican soccer federations. The Thorns were the league’s biggest hit attendance-wise, with an average of more than 13,300 fans per match. Portland’s attendance skewed the average attendance for the league, but the median attendance was just over 3,000 fans a game. SEE SOCCER | B2

Sports Kuchar leads at soggy tournament THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Matt Kuchar made the most of his short day at The Barclays. Kuchar didn’t tee off until Friday afternoon at Liberty National and knew he had no chance to finish. He could barely see his ball cross the water and set up a twoputt birdie on the 13th hole that gave him the outright lead, and there was enough light coming from lower Manhattan across the Hudson River to hit his tee shot on the 14th. The horn sounded, and by then, he was ready to go home. Kuchar was at 10-under par with five holes left and had to return this morning to try build on his one-shot lead over Webb Simpson and Gary Woodland, who both finished the second round in the rain-delayed tournament. As for Tiger Woods, he couldn’t get off the course fast enough. Woods challenged the target set by Simpson with three birdies in five holes — he was two shots behind — and he had a pair of par 5s in front of him. He failed to make birdie on either of the par 5s, and made three bogeys out of the bunker through the 12th hole to fall off the pace. He made birdie on the 13th, the last hole he completed, but was still five shots behind Kuchar, who was in his group.

Tampa Bay’s Jose Lobaton, right, celebrates with teammates Kelly Johnson, left, and Matt Joyce after hitting a second-inning three-run home run off New York Yankees starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda on Friday.

Rays rookie tops Yankees again THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Rookie Chris Archer beat the New York Yankees for the third time, Evan Longoria hit one of four homers off Hiroki Kuroda and the Tampa Bay Rays topped their AL East rivals 7-2 on Friday night. Jose Lobaton homered and drove in four runs in support of Archer (7-5), a 24-year-old righthander who won AL twice earlier this season at Yankee Recap Stadium, including a two-hit shutout on July 27. He gave up four hits over seven innings this time. Matt Joyce and Ben Zobrist also went deep for Tampa Bay, hitting solo shots off Kuroda (11-9), who tied a career high for homers allowed — the first given up by the Yankees starter in nearly two months. Orioles 9, Athletics 7: Brian Roberts hit a grand slam, Adam Jones homered and had three RBIs, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Oakland Athletics to gain ground in the wildcard race. Roberts and Jones connected in a six-run fourth inning that put

Baltimore up 6-3. After Oakland rallied to take the lead, Jones drove in the goahead run during a three-run seventh. The victory moved the Orioles past Cleveland into third place in the wildcard hunt. Tampa Bay is on top and Baltimore now stands two games behind Oakland. The top two teams make the playoffs. Coco Crisp homered, had a careerhigh tying four hits and scored three runs for the A’s, who have lost four of six and are 15-17 since the All-Star break. Twins 5, Indians 1: Samuel Deduno pitched six solid innings and Josh Willingham busted out of a slump with a two-run double in the seventh, leading Minnesota over Cleveland, slowing the Indians’ climb toward a wild-card spot. Deduno (8-7) allowed just one run and three hits for his first win since July 27 as the Twins continued to befuddle the Indians. Minnesota is 14-7 against Cleveland since last September. Willingham was in an 0-for-15 slide before his double off Cody Allen put the Twins ahead 4-1. Astros 12, Blue Jays 4: Rookie Robbie Grossman homered and drove in four runs and Matt Dominguez had a solo shot and the Houston Astros used a big fourth inning and cruised to a win

over the Toronto Blue Jays. Houston led by one before adding five runs in the fourth inning behind a two RBI triple by Jonathan Villar and a run-scoring triple by Jason Castro to make it 8-2. Rangers 11, White Sox 5: Ian Kinsler raced around the bases for a bizarre inside-the-park homer and Adam Rosales had a conventional tworun shot, helping the Texas Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox. The AL West-leading Rangers (7553) had five homers in all while winning for the 19th time in 23 games to move a season-high 22 games over .500. Jeff Baker and pinch hitter Mitch Moreland each had two-run shot, and Adrian Beltre belted a solo drive. Angels 2, Mariners 0: Chris Nelson hit a two-run homer off Felix Hernandez and the Los Angeles Angels ruined Eric Wedge’s return to the dugout with a victory over the Seattle Mariners (see related story on Page B1). Garrett Richards (4-5) allowed four hits in 7 1-3 innings and two relievers finished the five-hitter for Los Angeles. Nelson snapped an 0-for-17 slide when he connected in the second for his third homer. Josh Hamilton scored on Nelson’s long ball after leading off the inning with a single.

Tigers spoil Daisuke’s debut with Mets BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Miguel Cabrera hit a three-run homer, Torii Hunter also connected and the Tigers tagged Daisuke Matsuzaka early on in his return to the majors in a 6-1 win over the Mets. Hunter added a two-run double and Doug Fister (11-6) pitched into the seventh inning to help Detroit win the interleague series opener. Austin Jackson went deep for the second straight day for the AL Central leaders. The series resumes today with a rematch of All-Star game starters at Citi Field: Max Scherzer puts his 18-1 record on the line against New York ace Matt Harvey in a nationally televised game. Minus two injured starters, the Mets signed Matsuzaka (0-1) on Thursday to fill a hole in the rotation and immediately handed him a difficult assignment. The Japanese right-hander allowed five runs — all coming in the first two frames — and six hits in five innings. Dodgers 2, Red Sox 0: Ricky Nolasco pitched eight innings of two-hit ball, Hanley Ramirez hit a tworun homer with two outs in the fourth and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Boston Red Sox in the opener of an interleague series that began as a matchup between first-place teams. The Dodgers won their fourth in a row, while the Red Sox lost for the sixth time in eight games. With the loss, Boston fell percentage points behind Tampa Bay in the AL East standings. Nolasco and John Lackey dueled through eight innings of Boston’s first visit to Dodger Stadium since 2002. They combined for just five hits in a game that lasted barely two hours. Nationals 11, Royals 10: Jayson Werth hit a two-run homer, Bryce Harper drove in three runs and the Washington Nationals rallied

Harper also made a terrific catch in the ninth for Washington, which scored seven times in the fourth inning of its fourth consecutive win. Ian Desmond had a pair of hits during the outburst. Denard Span, Ryan Zimmerman, Tyler Moore and Anthony Rendon also had RBIs as the Nationals piled up 11 runs for the second time in three games — they beat the Cubs 11-6 on Tuesday night.

NATIONAL LEAGUE Cardinals 3, Braves 1: Adam Wainwright earned his NL-leading 15th win with his fifth complete game and had a key sacrifice fly to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 3-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night. Matt Holliday’s 432-foot

home run off Kris Medlen (10-12) snapped a sixthinning tie for St. Louis, which took the first two games of a four-game set against the NL East leaders. Having already thrown 101 pitches, Wainwright was allowed to bat with the one out and the bases loaded in the seventh inning. He hit a long fly ball to center off Scott Downs for his third RBI of the season, making it 3-1. Medlen singled to lead off the sixth and scored on Freddie Freeman’s second hit of the game. Medlen also retired 12 in a row at one point, but he allowed Holliday’s 17th homer on a liner deep into the left field stands. Brewers 6, Reds 4: Khris Davis hit a pair of two-run homers in consecutive atbats for the first multihomer game of his career, powering Milwaukee to the win. Scooter Gennett also

homered for the Brewers, who won at Great American Ball Park for only the second time in seven games this season. The Reds lost for only the fifth time in their last 17 games, a surge that has tightened the NL Central race. They came in a season-high 18 games over .500. Phillies 4, Arizona 3: Chase Utley walked with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting Philadelphia to the comeback victory. Cody Asche led off the ninth with a single and went to third on Jimmy Rollins’ single. Heath Bell (4-2) intentionally walked Michael Young to load the bases for Kevin Frandsen. After striking out Frandsen, Bell was lifted for left-hander Eury De La Rosa. De La Rosa ran the count to 3-2 and Utley walked when the final pitch appeared to be a bit inside. Rockies 3, Marlins 2: Ryan Wheeler hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the eighth to help Colorado get the win. Jhoulys Chacin (12-7) allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings for the Rockies. Adam Ottavino pitched the eighth and Lex Brothers finished for his 12th save in 13 opportunities. With the Rockies trailing 2-1 in the eighth, Tulowitzki got the rally started with a one-out double off Chad Qualls (4-2). Michael Cuddyer followed with a tying RBI single. After Rosario grounded out, Wheeler gave the Rockies a 3-2 lead with a double to center for his first RBI of the season. Pirates 3, Giants 1: Clint Barmes hit a three-run home run, Charlie Morton pitched eight strong innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the San Francisco Giants. Andrew McCutchen and Josh Harrison each had two hits for the Pirates, who have won four of five and maintained their one-game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central.

Park, Kerr share lead at Canadian Women’s Open EDMONTON, Alberta — Top-ranked Inbee Park shot a 5-under 65 for a share of the second-round lead Cristie Kerr in the Canadian Women’s Open.

QBS Freshman will start for Cal From Page B1 Probably the most puzzling of the unannounced teams is Washington State, where it appears that Mike Leach is just going to make season-opening opponent Auburn wait awhile longer to know for sure. But junior Connor Halliday is pretty much a lock. Halliday completed 52 percent of his passes for 1,874 yards, with 15 touchdowns. But he also threw 13 interceptions, many by forcing the ball into coverage. That may be why Leach has left the door open for freshman Austin Apodaca. Or maybe not. Leach isn’t saying. The Cougars have an especially tough start, opening the season Aug. 31 at Jordan-Hare Stadium before traveling to Southern

SOCCER From Page B1 While Portland’s goal was to make the playoffs, Parlow Cone says she wished the match could have been at Jeld-Wen Field. “We did our best to reward our amazing fans in Portland with a home playoff game, but unfortunately we fell a point short,” she said. There were two other prior attempts at a women’s pro league in the United States, but both failed after just two seasons: The Women’s United

Steelers add Jones in trade with Eagles PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers have bolstered their injury-plagued backfield, acquiring running back Felix Jones from Philadelphia for linebacker Adrian Robinson. The deal, announced Friday, requires both players to pass a physical. The 26-year-old Jones gives the Steelers needed depth at running back. Rookie Le’Veon Bell is out indefinitely with a sprained right foot. Isaac Redman is dealing with a nerve injury and return specialist LaRod Stephens-Howling sat out last Monday’s preseason game against Washington with a sprained knee. Jones was the 22nd overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys but never stayed healthy enough to become the teams’ feature back. He has rushed for 2,728 yards and 11 touchdowns in 64 games. Robinson made the Steelers as a undrafted rookie free agent last season, appearing in 12 games.

Childers will walk away from MWR after season BRISTOL, Tenn. — Crew chief Rodney Childers will not return to Michael Waltrip Racing next season and informed his crew of his decision Friday at Bristol Motor Speedway. “There was no one big thing that stood out at all,” Childers said. “Everybody at MWR has treated me great for five years and really has had no issues at all. It’s just a personal decision, and I’ve thought about it for a long time. I just woke up one day and that’s what my heart told me I should do so hopefully it works out.” Childers is expected to move to Stewart-Haas Racing to crew chief Kevin Harvick next season, but competition director Greg Zipadelli said no contract has been completed with Childers.

Cutler leads Bears to preseason win in Oakland OAKLAND, Calif. — Jay Cutler led five first-half scoring drives, Matt Forte gained 109 yards from scrimmage and the Chicago Bears beat the Oakland Raiders in the final dress rehearsal for the regular season with a 34-26 victory on Friday night.

California for their second game. California entered fall camp with a four-way quarterback competition, but new coach Sonny Dykes declared late last week that freshman Jared Goff had earned the job. Goff was a top recruit out of Marin Catholic High School in Novato, Calif. He graduated high school early and was able to participate in spring practice for Cal. “I’m honored to get the chance to start for Cal and am looking forward to going out and helping the team win,” Goff said. “I’m super excited and ready to get rolling.” The Golden Bears open the season at home against Northwestern on Aug. 31. Goff joins the six Pac-12 quarterbacks whose jobs were already solidified: Oregon’s Marcus Mariota, Stanford’s Kevin Hogan, Washington’s Keith Price, UCLA’s Brett Hundley, Utah’s Travis Wilson and Arizona State’s Taylor Kelly.

Soccer Association was founded in 2000, hoping to capitalize on the U.S. national team’s victory in the 1999 World Cup, but the league folded in 2003. Another league, Women’s Professional Soccer, played from 20102012 but had insurmountable internal organization and financial issues. The NWSL believes it is better positioned to succeed because of its association with the North American soccer federations, which pay the salaries of their national team players to help keep costs down.

Seahawks beat Packers

Kyle Busch makes a pit stop during the NASCAR Nationwide Series race Friday in Bristol, Tenn.

Busch dominates Bristol again THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — The crowd showered Kyle Busch with boos Friday night as he celebrated yet another Bristol Motor Speedway win in Victory Lane. “Whether you’re booing or cheering, glad you’re here,” Busch said over the public address system. “Hope you’re booing more tomorrow when we take home another trophy.” It wouldn’t be out of the question for Busch, who will be going for a Bristol sweep in Saturday night’s Sprint Cup Series race. He won Wednesday night’s Truck Series race and dominated Friday night’s Nationwide Series race, starting from the pole and leading 228 of the 250 laps. “You’ve got to win two to go for three, so here’s two,” said Busch, who has 15 career national wins at Bristol and

swept the week in August 2010. His win Friday night was his 60th Nationwide series win of his career, and 120th spanning NASCAR’s three national series. It was also his 15th of the season after winning just one race in all three series last season. “It comes from preparation, it comes from the shop, it comes from practice here,” said Busch, who also praised crew chief Adam Stevens. “Adam and I, we work real well together.” Brad Keselowski was second, followed by Austin Dillon, Justin Allgaier, Kyle Larson, Trevor Bayne, Ty Dillon, Kasey Kahne, Brian Scott and Elliott Sadler. Sam Hornish Jr. entered the race as the Nationwide Series points leader but had a spark plug wire problem and finished 12th. He has a sixpoint lead over Austin Dillon, who gained two spots

in the standings. Busch, meanwhile, won’t have such an easy go of it in tonight’s Cup race after a spin in qualifying prevented him from making a lap. He’ll start last in the 43-car field and have to fight hard to avoid being lapped early on the .533-mile bullring. “It’s a whole different ball game tomorrow, for sure,” he said. “In qualifying, I just overstepped it, got too high, I was a little loose and I just screwed up. It’s not like I haven’t come from deep in the field before, but it’s going to be a tall order.”

Hamlin takes pole Denny Hamlin has won the pole for tonight’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway, his first pole at Bristol. Kurt Busch was second and Carl Edwards qualified third and was followed by Brian Vickers and Matt Kenseth.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks’ offensive juggernaut hit a speed bump at Lambeau Field. The Green Bay Packers weren’t exactly lighting up the scoreboard, either. Christine Michael ran for 97 yards on 11 carries and Stephen Williams snatched a ball away from cornerback Loyce Means in the end zone for a 42-yard touchdown catch and the go-ahead score in the Seahawks’ 17-10 preseason victory Friday night. Michael had a 43-yard touchdown run in the third quarter for the Seahawks (30), who stayed unbeaten but didn’t look like the team that steamrolled over Denver and San Diego the previous two weeks. This game instead will be remembered for some defense, and a host of mistakes and sloppy play — not exactly what Seahawks coach Pete Carroll or Packers counterpart Mike McCarthy were looking for with the regular season a little more than two weeks away. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, returning to the state where he turned into a college star at Wisconsin, finished 11 of 17 for 126 yards but threw two interception, including a pass tipped by two defenders that landed in the opportunistic hands of Casey Hayward. Wilson looked in midseason form on the opening series against the Packers first-string defense in the first quarter, guiding Seattle to the 9 by gaining chunks of yardage on long pass plays. But running back Robert Turbin was stuffed on first down. Then, the 5-foot-10 Turbin was overmatched on the edge trying to block 6-

Green Bay’s Brandon Smith (34) breaks up a pass intended for Seattle receiver Stephen Williams during the second half Friday. foot-3 linebacker Clay Matthews, who sacked Wilson. Seattle settled for Steven Hauschka’s 27-yard field goal. “Obviously, that was a big emphasis for us last year and even more so this year, is limiting his ability to create plays by running out of the pocket,” Matthews said at halftime. “He’s going to make his plays, but I felt for the most part, not only myself, but as a rushing unit, we did a good job of keeping him bottled up in the pocket, forcing some errant throws and getting after him.” The Seahawks have been a chic pick to get to the Super Bowl, especially after beating their first two opponents this preseason by a combined score of 71-20. Big plays propelled Seattle last week to a 40-10 rout of the Broncos. But penalties weighed

down both teams on a warm evening, especially the Seahawks. They had twice as many penalties (six) as points in a chippy first half. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers looked fine in his only series, Green Bay’s sole possession of the first quarter. He finished 4 of 7 for 41 yards, a 22-yard connection to tight end Jermichael Finley to the Seattle 24 to help set up Mason Crosby’s 38-yard field goal. The Packers pulled most of their starters by the second quarter, while the most of the Seahawks starters stayed in until early in the third. It mattered little to Vince Young, vying for the backup job behind Rodgers. He orchestrated an 11-play, 80yard drive in the third quarter that ended with a 1-yard touchdown pass to backup fullback Jonathan Amosa.

Complicated fun: Are theme parks going geeky? WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) — Boasting obscure characters and detailed story lines, several new attractions opened at theme parks this summer in Central Florida. The new rides and areas are much different from those just a generation ago, when Dumbo the Flying Elephant was considered high tech. These days, a ride involving a simple,blue elephant just won’t cut it. Take World of Chima at Legoland, for instance. The attraction is based on a Lego building block play set and Cartoon Network show about eight animal tribes, a crocodile king, magical vehicles called Speedorz and a life force called Chi. There are epic battles over the Ancient Pool of Chi, set in a lushly landscaped tropical world. Or look at Universal’s Transformers ride. It isn’t just inspired by the toy and the movie — it’s a detailed, 3-D, “interactive battle” between the Autobots and Decepticons that has its own website. Even the straightforward-sounding Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin ride at SeaWorld Orlando is about a penguin hatchling who grows up, leaves his mom, is chased by a leopard seal through a psychedeliclooking world and then reunited with his tribe of fellow birds. Real, live penguins appear at the end of the ride. When did fun become so complicated? Theme park consultants say attractions need to be more detailed in the age of video games, smartphones and 3-D TVs.And of course, parks aren’t just competing with home entertainment; they’re competing against each other for guests’ time and money,especially in the I-4 corridor, a busy highway that runs through the Orlando area. The rise of the Internet means everyone is a critic — several theme park fan blogs are devoted to dissecting the geeky details of each new attraction. “In the 1970s we could do quite a bit in theme parks,” said John Gerner, the managing director of Leisure Business Advisors LLC. “Nowadays, it’s hard to provide a typical music show. There just isn’t that much of a thrill anymore.” Attraction designers have a difficult job: They must present a story to guests of all ages, from all walks of life. “It’s got to be layered and it’s got to work on a number of different levels,” said Phil Hettema, a Californiabased theme park designer. “It’s got to work on the kids, the adults. It’s pretty tricky. You’re trying to convey a lot for those who don’t know it. You have to give the newcomer enough clues.” With an established story like Transformers, many people have seen the 1980s TV cartoon, and many more the movie franchise. So even if Universal’s intense, dark ride involves a new story or is incredibly detailed, most people can follow the narrative. Same with Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Many of the visitors are familiar with the story, either through J.K Rowling’s books or the blockbuster movies. Yet familiarity also has its pitfalls for theme park designers: Rabid fans know when a detail is out of place. Scott Thomas, Cartoon Network’s vice president of consumer marketing, says he’s gotten emails from the under-10 set about inconsistencies and questions in the storyline for the Chima cartoon. “Kids today have very high expectations,” he said.“And the storylines are very complex in kids’ media today.”

Children look at a computer presentation on how to assemble Lego parts during a Digital Media Academy workshop in Stanford, Calif. Lego's new Mindstorms sets rolling out next month are keenly anticipated by Silicon Valley engineers — many of whom were drawn to the tech sector by the flagship kits that came on the market in 1998, introducing computerized movement to the traditional snap-together toy blocks and allowing the young innovators to build their first robots.

Silicon Valley awaits latest Lego robot kit BY MARTHA MENDOZA The Assocaited Press

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Few are more excited about Lego’s new Mindstorms sets rolling out next month than Silicon Valley engineers. Many of them were drawn to the tech sector by the flagship kits that came on the market in 1998, introducing computerized movement to the traditional snap-together toy blocks and allowing the young innovators to build their first robots. Now, 15 years later, those robot geeks are entrepreneurs and designers, and the colorful plastic bricks have an outsized influence in their lives. Techies tinker at Lego play stations in workplaces. Engineers mentor competitive Lego League teams. Designers use them to mock up larger projects ideas. And executives stand Lego creations on their desks alongside family photos. “Everyone I work with played with them as children. We sit around talking Lego. It’s a shared common experience,” said Travis Schuh, who reaches into his bin of plastic blocks when he needs a quick prototype at the Silicon Valley medical robotic firm where he works. The new Mindstorms sets, on sale Sept. 1, are simpler for the younger crowd and more versatile for sophisti-

cated users than two earlier versions. The sets are designed for kids over 10 and make it easy to build basic, remote-controlled robots, including a cobra-like snake that snaps Lego brick fangs. Some shoot balls, others drive along color-coded lines. But for $349, far more expensive than typical building toys, customers get a much more complex and powerful system. “There’s actually a lot of engineering that goes into Lego bricks and the systems you can prototype out of them are pretty sophisticated,” says Stanford University engineering professor Christian Gerdes, who uses them in his classroom. Professional hackers will also find plenty to do with the new Mindstorms, as the open source software uses Linux for the first time, and controller apps are integrated for tablets and mobile phones. San Francisco-based software engineer Will Gorman is one of those adult users. He has torn apart Mindstorms kits to create a Lego toilet flusher, a Wii-playing robot that bowled a perfect game and a Lego Mars Curiosity Rover. “I don’t consider myself an adult really,” said the 36year-old father of two last week, setting up yet another

Walmart pushes ‘made in America’ at Orlando summit ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Wal-Mart Stores Inc. spearheaded an effort Thursday to bring together retailers, suppliers and government officials so they can figure out how to bring more manufacturing jobs to the United States. The world’s largest retailer hosted its first two-day U.S. Manufacturing Summit in Orlando, hoping to capitalize on the company’s recent commitment to drive more manufacturing in the U.S. The “made in the USA” campaign could boost WalMart’s image, which is constantly under attack by labor-backed groups who have criticized the retail behemoth as a destroyer of U.S. jobs rather than a creator. The goal of the summit was to start “connecting the dots” with a dialogue among the 500 manufacturers, officials from three dozen states, eight governors and U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker at the conference, said Bill Simon, president and CEO of the company’s U.S. division. “It could be difficult for one at a time, all of us on our own,” Simon said. “The best way to overcome the challenges is to talk to one another.” The summit comes seven

months after the Bentonville, Ark.-based discounter pledged that it planned to buy $50 billion more U. S. made goods over the next decade. That’s the equivalent of just more than 10 percent of what Wal-Mart will sell at retail this year. Wal-Mart said that if other merchants do the same, it would mean an additional $500 billion in American-made goods over the next decade. Several companies were quick to get into the spirit at the summit. Kevin Toomey, president and CEO of Kayser-Roth Corp., a North Carolina-based legwear manufacturer, said his company would create over 100 jobs with a $30 million investment, and sock manufacturer Renfro Corp. announced a $10 million investment would bring 195 U.S. jobs. Jeff Immelt, chairman and CEO of General Electric Corp., announced that the company would be bringing 150 manufacturing jobs to plants in Illinois and Ohio where high-efficient lighting will be built. The $30 million investment will be at plants in Circleville, Ohio; Bucyrus, Ohio; and Mattoon, Ill. “We wanted to be a part of this,” Immelt said. “This is a first step.”

creation on a table in a sunny Redwood City library overlooking San Francisco’s bay wetlands. ProtoTank co-founder Adam Ellsworth, whose headquarters are on the third floor of TechShop San Francisco, says, “there is a culture of design in the Silicon Valley, and Lego bricks are how so many of us started.” “This place is just one big Lego station,” he added, raising his voice above the buzz of laser cutters and 3-D printers. “Taking an idea, a concept, and finding the right way to turn it into something real, that’s fundamentally what you’re doing with Lego bricks.”

TiVo refreshes lineup with 6-tuner Roamio DVRs BY ANICK JESDANUN The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — TiVo Inc. wants to give television viewers more control over what they watch on traditional channels and over the Internet as the pioneer of digital video recorders unveils its fifth-generation devices. The new devices face more competition than TiVos did when they debuted in 1999. Cable and satellite TV companies are improving their own DVR offerings, while stand-alone devices such as Roku, Apple TV and Google’s Chromecast seek to simplify Internet streaming TVs. on big-screen Meanwhile, game consoles and smartphones now come with apps to do much of what TiVo does. An Internet startup called Aereo offers an Internet-based DVR for broadcast channels. With its new Roamio DVR, TiVo is counting on the

notion that avid television viewers prefer one device to do it all. “What TiVo is doing here is pressing home their advantage. That is, they know TV,” said Colin Dixon, chief analyst at nScreen Media, a research firm in Sunnyvale, Calif. “What they are doing here is actually very difficult for anybody else.” Dixon said many casual television viewers will be fine with generic offerings from their cable company, but TiVo’s appeal is with high-end consumers who are already paying the most for television packages and Internet video services. The Roamio went on sale Tuesday and marks the company’s first major update in three years. Like previous TiVos and other DVRs, the Roamio supports basic functions such as the ability to pause and rewind live TV. TiVos also let you watch video from BEAUTIFUL 3BR, 1.5BA HOME with a large deck and gorgeous landscaping on 2.33 acres. This updated house has a living and family room, great kitchen, carport, and shop. A wonderful property on the edge of Coquille for only $219,000. MLS# 13008469

pricier models require a TV signal from a cable service. (Satellite TV isn’t supported on any of the devices. AT&T’S U-verse won’t work either, but Verizon’s FiOS will.) TiVo, which is based in San Jose, Calif., has been steadily gaining subscribers over the past two years, after seeing its business decline amid competition from DVRs provided by cable and satellite companies. TiVo now partners with many of those companies, including Comcast Corp., to provide a premium DVR offering. It also sells stand-alone DVRs, such as the current Premiere line. TiVo had 3.4 million subscribers as of April 30, a near-

ly 75 percent increase from 2 million two years earlier. Gartner analyst Mike McGuire said the new TiVos will appeal to people who want to find shows easily, whether they come from a traditional channel or from an Internet service. Although cheaper rival devices are available, McGuire said some consumers will be drawn by TiVo’s simplicity — especially if they are already paying for premium cable packages in multiple rooms. The Roamio expands TiVo’s push into multi-room experiences. You can buy a TiVo Mini for $100 upfront and $6 in monthly service fees to extend the functionality of the main TiVo into

another room. Two family members can watch separate shows even though all the recordings are coming through the main TiVo. Although that capability was available before, the Roamio offers under-the-hood improvements in allocating resources. Jim Denney, TiVo’s vice president for product marketing, acknowledged growing competition from other television-viewing devices and services. But in offering both traditional channels and Internet video, as well as features such as viewing away from home, the Roamio “should be the best TV experience you can get. . It’s your content wherever you want.”

Netflix, Hulu and other Internet services on regular TVs, as long as you have subscriptions with them. The new TiVos give you more options for finding shows to watch. The emphasis in the past was on finding programs to record, whether by title, actor, director, genre or keyword. The Roamio offers recommendations on what’s currently on, based in part of what other TiVo viewers are watching and have watched in that time slot in the past. The new devices also let you narrow what you see in channel-bychannel listings to just movies, sports or kids shows. Some of the new DVRs will also come with the ability to watch live and recorded shows on iPhones and iPads. Before, a $130 device called TiVo Stream was needed. Streaming is initially limited to devices on the home WiFi network. This fall, out-ofhome viewing will be available through other Wi-Fi networks, such as at work, hotels and coffee shops. An Android app also is coming by early next year. The mid-range Roamio model comes with enough storage for 150 hours of high-definition television and can record up to six channels at once. Besides built-in streaming, there’s built-in Wi-Fi support to negate the need for TiVo’s $90 adapter. TiVo is touting the $220 savings as it tries to persuade people to spend $400 for that mid-range model, the Roamio Plus. It’s an investment that also requires a $15-a-month TiVo service for electronic television listings and other features. A high-end Roamio Pro, which can store 450 hours of HD programming, is available for $600. The $200 base model has 75 hours of storage and can record just four channels at once. It also lacks built-in support for streaming to iPhones and iPads. But the base model can record overthe-air broadcasts, while the

Real Estate-Finance

Plan now for great-tasting tomatoes next year BY LEE REICH TheAssociated Press I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Home-grown tomatoes are NOT the besttasting ones. Not necessarily, that is. Now, I’m not advocating tossing in your trowel and doing your harvesting at the supermarket. What I am saying is that choosing the best variety is the important thing if you’re looking to grow a great-tasting tomato. Grow an Early Girl to perfection, harvest it at its peak of flavor and take a bite, and you’ll taste a good tomato. But not — in my opinion — a great tomato. A tomato that has been handled carefully keeps pretty well for a couple of days, so you could actually buy a great-tasting tomato from a store or farm stand. But only if that tomato is a great-tasting variety. Unfortunately, the best-

tasting varieties don’t usually have the qualities demanded of a commercial tomato: tough skins to withstand handling, high yields, concentrated ripening, disease resistance. So you do generally have to grow your own to get the best taste. And now is a good time to start, by doing two things.

1. Taste a lot of tomatoes Try eating various kinds of tomatoes now, while they are abundant and tasty. Taste the varieties offered at farm stands and local farms, and those growing in the backyards of friends and neighbors. Cook up and taste any varieties you want to consider for canning, because cooking a tomato dramatically changes its flavor. A fresh San Marzano tomato tastes like cotton but cooks into a delectable sauce. Fresh or cooked, you’ll be amazed at the range in flavor

among tomato varieties. Settle for nothing but the best.

1. Source seeds Once you’ve found some great-tasting tomato varieties, plan for next year. If you have the variety’s name, you may be able to find it in a seed catalog and simply order seeds for next season. Good sources for many tomato varieties include Tomato Growers Supply Company ( 8 8 8 - 478 -7333, www.tomatogrowers.com), Totally Tomatoes (803-6630016,www.totallytomato.com), Sustainable Seed Co., (877620-SEED, http://sustainableseedco.com) and Seed Savers Exchange (319-382-5990, www.seedsavers.org). But there’s no need to forsake the best tomatoes just because you can’t put a name on them. Many greattasting tomatoes are nonhybrid, or heirloom, varieties. That means you can easily save the seeds.

Seeds from hybrid tomatoes also often yield plants with good-tasting fruits — sometimes even fruits identical to those from the mother plant — if they were called “hybrid” by seed sellers merely to discourage seed saving. Saving tomato seeds entails nothing much more than squeezing a bit of the seed-gel mix out of the cavity of a tomato fruit into a glass. That gel contains inhibitors that keep the seeds from sprouting while still inside the fruit. Leach and ferment those inhibitors away by adding some water to the seed-gel mix. After letting the slurry sit for a day or so, pour it through a fine strainer, wash the seeds well The Associated Press in running water, and spread The first step in saving tomato seeds entails nothing much more than them out to dry. Now you’re all set for good eating next squeezing a bit of the seed-gel mix out of the cavity of a tomato fruit into a glass. No need even to sacrifice eating the rest of the fruit! year. Online: By the way, the tomato and Anna Russian, as well as seeds I’m squirrelling away the hybrid Sungold and two http://leereich.blogspot. now are from the heirloom unnamed varieties passed com/ varieties Gardener’s Delight, down to me from a couple of http://leereich.com/ Belgian Giant, Amish Paste local gardeners. Mmmm.

Mapping the wiring saves me time, trouble It took me a couple of years, but one of the smartest things I ever did was map the wiring of the new-new house. It was something I’d always meant to do in previous HouseWorks Project Houses, but somehow I’d never gotten around to it. I started with rough sketches of the ground floor and basement, then I wandered around one afternoon with a tape and measured every wall and window and door opening, faithfully marking them down. Then I drew new floor plans to scale. (Someone less obsessive than I am wouldn’t bother with the scale drawings, but after I had mine, I made several copies so I could sketch remodeling projects on them or “rearrange furniture” before I had to actually pound any nails or move anything. It’s easier on the back.) On the electrical maps I drew little circles to mark each outlet and light fixture. I could have marked wall switches, too, but I know — from turning the lights on and off for the past decade — which controls what, so I didn’t bother. The exterior and garage fixtures were marked off to the side of the ground-floor drawing — although it’s pretty easy to figure out what’s tied in where when your wiring is running between bare studs and among open rafters. For the next couple of years, every time I had to mess with anything electrical — such as hang the ceiling fans that now spin in nearly every room — I wrote the numbers of the breakers that controlled each outlet or light in the little circles. Living alone makes this sort of a hassle (no one to yell down to you, “That’s the one!”), but I dealt with it by plugging a 50-foot drop cord into whatever outlet I happened to be working on and snaking it through the house to the vicinity of the basement breaker panel, then plugging in a shop light. Eventually, by flipping the breakers on and off, I’d discover which one controlled the outlet in question. With that breaker off, I’d plug lights into all the nearby outlets and map them, too. To check lights, such as when I was swapping all those fans for old fixtures, I’d remove a bulb and

replace it with a screw-in adapter, then I’d plug my drop cord into that. Some of the breakers were obvious: The d o u b l e HOUSE breakers handle 220 circuits, such as the kitchen stove and the air conditioning. Most of the 15-amp cirSTEVE cuits turned out to be for BATIE ceiling lights, and the 20s are usually wall outlets. Eventually (after more than a few home improvement projects), I had nearly all the little circles filled in. Now, when I need to know what breaker controls which device, I simply consult my floor plans, which I keep on a pantry shelf beside the breaker box in the basement. It was some trouble, but the maps have saved me a lot of traipsing up and down stairs during the years since I finished them. I wish I gone to the trouble in my previous houses, but I was younger then and traipsing didn’t bother me as much.

WORKS

young If you want to turn children into gardeners, you have to sucker them in during the “mud years.” You know, the years — from about age 3 to 8 — during which kids think mud is just about the best stuff in the whole world. The years when they have to jump every puddle. When they have to carefully examine every twig that falls, every bugs that crawls, every bird's nest they come across. The years when they’re not afraid to get dirty. The years when, as a matter of fact, they relish it. Coincidentally, those are also the years — and the very last years — when children believe adults know everything. Which means they still can be conned. So if you want to con kids into gardening, you have to do it during the mud years or they’ll wise up. In fact, wised-up kids actually will come to resent being drafted for such garden fun as pulling weeds and squishing potato bugs. Honest. They’ll hate it. A tried and true scam for getting kids interested in gardening is assigning them a little spot all their own, a small plot off to one side of

balm growing for just this purpose, and I know a couple of kids who still run straight to the “lemonade bush” whenever they get the chance. Likewise, texture can fascinate. I’m thinking such garden standbys as wooly lamb’s ears or glossy English ivy, feathery ferns or prickly holly. And do you remember the trick of sucking the honey from the freshly plucked butt of a daylily bloom? I saw it shown to a 6year-old girl many years ago, then I got to see that now-grown woman teach her own 6-year-old daughter about 25 years later.

substitute, and purple pod beans are even better. When you boil or steam them, they turn the same green as their more common brethren — something that amazes children no end. If you plant a vining variety of beans, rather than bush-type beans, you can create a tiny “playhouse” of sorts right in the garden. All you need are some poles arranged in a tipi — just remember to leave a door opening. Cucumbers will do that, too, although you will have to coax their vines into climbing the poles. T ies made of yarn or strips of rag work nicely. Children also are excited by familiar smells from unfamiliar places. Rub a few leaves of spearmint or garden sage between tiny palms and watch their eyes widen. I keep a clump of lemon

the “grown-up” garden where they can plant and water and weed and nurture their own green-growies. A few things to keep in mind: ■ Children have short attention spans. They want to see seeds sprout in just a few days, and they expect to find something to harvest shortly thereafter. ■ Little kids have little hands with even littler dexterity. They are not good with tiny seeds. ■ Kids like bright colors. The obvious solution is radishes. Their seeds are big, they germinate quickly and the pretty red roots often are ready to harvest in little more than a month. Unhappily, it’s the odd child who actually will eat radishes (frankly, I still won’t). Green beans are a decent

Revealed: The Magic in Mr. Clean’s Erasers! DEAR MARY: I read your advice to use Mr. Clean Magic Erasers to clean up dirty leather handbags. Apparently, those rather pricey erasers are made of something called melamine foam, a product that is readily available, which m a ke s “ e ra se rs ” p re t ty cheap if you order what they’re made of instead of buying EVERYDAY them at CHEAPSKATE t h e s to re . I hope this can help someone looking fo r a n e a s y clean. — Megan S., email Mary DEAR M E GAN: Hunt I know I speak for thousands of readers when I say, “ T h a n k yo u ve ry much.” We love knowing the inside scoop on how to find cheaper alternatives for expensive products we enjoy using. I am grateful for the information. I’ve looked around and find that melamine foam is used for insulating and soundproofing and readily available — ava i l a b l e a t s to re s l i ke Home Depot in great big sheets. Interested readers ca n s i m p ly G o og l e “melamine foam.” What fun. Dear Mary: We are very appreciative of the mention of Jamestown Settlement (Virginia) in your recent “Six ways to ensure a fabulous family vacation” column! This is to note that o u r We b a d d re ss — www.historyisfun.org — is similar but not the same as for the Washington County ( Wi sco n s i n ) H i s to r i ca l Society, www.historyisfun.com. — Debby Padget, Media Relations Manager, Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation. Dear Debby: My apologies for getting your excellent organization mixed up with another in Wisconsin. I hope that my readers who f i n d t h e m se lve s i n t h e Virginia area this summer will make it a point to visit Ja m e s tow n a n d , i n t h e meantime, tour your excellent website. DEAR MARY: I am in the process of converting my old slides to a CD and wonder if you have any suggestions as to what I should do with the old “carousels” the slides were stored in. I think I can recycle them, but I wonder if they could possibly be useful for something, as is. Thanks. — Cathy U., email Dear Cathy: Your question piqued my interest, as somewhere in my vast collection of things inherited from the in-laws, I have a pile of those carousels, too. I did a little research, and sure enough, at least one very clever artisan has found a beautiful use for slide carousels. I found a clock made from an “upcycled” Kodak Slide Carousel at Allan Yo u n g ' s E tsy s to re , P i x e l T h i s ( w w w. e t s y. c o m / l i s t ing/107986637/recycledk o d a k - s l i d e carousel?ref=shop_home_a ctive). I love this store, featuring “stuff from stuff.” This leads me to believe that there is a market for your carousels. There is a link on Allan’s storefront to contact him directly via email. Or you could list your carousels for sale on eBay or Craigslist. I have a feeling that your q u e ry h e re i s go i n g to prompt a lot of attention from artisans like Allan, who would love to take these items off your hands. Mary invites questions at mary@everydaycheapskate.c om, or c/o Everyday Cheapskate, P.O. Box 2099, Cypress, CA 90630. This column will answer questions of general interest, but letters cannot be answered individually.

Anne Frank wrote, “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” How wonderful it is when a single card improves the fit and results in a low-point-count slam. Look at the North hand in today’s diagram. You open one spade and partner responds two clubs. What would you rebid? After a two-over-one response in Standard American, a new-suit rebid

by opener is forcing for one round. So a jump rebid can be used as a splinter bid, showing good support for partner’s suit, extra values and a singleton (or void) in the named suit. (I think that this is much more useful than describing a good 5-5 two-suiter.) Here, South, now knowing that his three heart losers can be ruffed on the board, should control-bid (cue-bid) four hearts to suggest a slam. Then North can use some form of Blackwood. At that point, the problem will be to avoid seven clubs. Against six clubs, West leads the spade king. How should South plan the play? The deal is perfect for a crossruff. But before commencing one of those, declarer should cash all of his side-suit winners. So, after taking the first trick with dummy’s spade ace, South should play a heart to his ace and cash dummy’s diamond winners. Then he crossruffs to take one spade, one heart, two diamonds, four spade ruffs in his hand, three heart ruffs on the board, and one top trump. Each defender wins trick 13: West with the diamond jack and East with the club eight.
