COQUILLE — Due, in part, to a computer problem at the North Bend Police Department, the tattoo artist accused of trying to kill a competitor earlier this summer has a couple more weeks to negotiate any potential plea agreement with the D.A.’s office. David Edgar Wonnacott, 42, is facing a total of six charges including attempted murder, possession of a firearm by a felon and menacing. According to an affidavit, Wonnacott is alleged to have pulled up in a vehicle outside a competing North Bend tattoo business in broad daylight and leveled a handgun at the torso of the owner. The gun didn’t go off and the two men wrestled for the weapon until the butt of the gun was brought down on the victim’s head. The suspect then fled. Court documents indicate the motive appears to be purely a dissatisfaction with losing business to the other man. Wonnacott was back in a Coos County courtroom on Wednesday for a scheduled change of plea hearing that didn’t happen. A breakdown of two computer servers

NORTH BEND — Starting on Tuesday, the citizens of North Bend will have a new sheriff in town. Well, a new police chief at least. City Administrator Terence O’Connor said Robert Kappleman of Two Rivers, Wis., will take command of the North Bend Police Department on Sept. 3. He’ll fill the gap left by Chief Steve Scibelli, who ended his 41-year law enforcement career July 31 after spending the past 11 years with the department. Kappleman is a 21-year veteran of the Two Rivers Police Department, having joined in 1992 as a part-time officer. He went full-time in 1993 and later became a detective. Kappelman most recently served as captain of field services, supervising the department’s 27 sworn officers. He said his experience in Wisconsin taught him the importance of working directly with citizens to combat crime. “Community policing was our core value in Two Rivers,” Kappleman said. “We will continue to work with the community in a partnership situation.” Capt. Ron Akers said that as chief, Kappelman will supervise 16 sworn officers.

A honey bee comes in to land on a flowering Verbena bonariensis plant in the Lady Bug Landing Community Garden in Coos Bay on Wednesday afternoon. Pollinators were busy all around the garden, which is in full bloom.

DEATHS

COOS BAY — If you happen to call the Social Security office in the coming weeks, you will be greeted with information on how to sign up for health care. That’s because open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act begins Oct. 1. Oregonians must apply for health care coverage through Cover Oregon or through their employer by Jan. 1, 2014. If they don’t, they face a $95 fine per person per year, said Michael Cox, spokesman for Oregon. Cover Oregon Cover The exchange For more information on will be working Cover Oregon, visit with insurance www.coveroregon.com or companies such call 1-855-COVEROR. as Kaiser PerFor general information manente, Moda on the new health care regHealth and othulations, especially in other ers. states, visit www.healthThose with care.gov or www.irs.gov. low incomes Follow The World and may qualify for visit www.theworldlink.com financial assisfor more in-depth stories tance with and additional information health coverage. on the Affordable Care Act For instance, a beginning Sept. 14. family of four with an income less than $94,200, qualifies. However, if their employers offer insurance, they do not qualify unless the cost is more than 9.5 percent of the household income. Businesses with fewer than 50 employees also may qualify for financial help. Coveroregon.com, the state’s exchange, is the best way to apply for coverage so far, according to Cox. He said they will offer “an old fashioned paper application” in

center packed with soldiers heading to or recently returned from overseas combat deployments. At trial, Lt. Col. Kris Poppe, a standby military attorney assigned to Hasan, told the judge that Hasan’s “goal is to remove impediments or obstacles to the death penalty.” Now that Hasan’s been sentenced to death, a written record of the trial will be produced and Fort Hood’s commanding general will have the option of granting clemency. Assuming none is granted, the case record is then scrutinized by the appeals courts for the Army and armed forces. If Hasan’s case and death sentence are eventually affirmed, he could ask the U.S. Supreme Court for a review or file motions in federal civilian courts. The president, as the military commander in chief, also must sign off on a death sentence. That process is anything but speedy. The military hasn’t executed an active-duty U.S. soldier since 1961.

Sheriff’s office makes final safety belt blitz for year SOUTH COAST The Coos County Sheriff’s Office is joining other law enforcement officers from around the state in the last safety belt blitz of the year. Between Aug. 26 and Sept. 8 deputies are utilizing federal overtime funding from U.S. Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration focusing on enforcing proper safety belt use and child restraint use. Statewide survey information from June showed that Oregon had the highest reported safety belt use to date of 98.18 percent. Among children ages 4-8, booster seat use was only 60 percent. Half of the children in this age group killed or injured in crashes during 2011 were not using booster seats. Child safety seats reduce the likelihood of infants under 1 year old being killed in a crash by 71 percent and the fatal risk for toddlers ages 1-4 by 54 percent, and 58 and 59 percent for infant and toddlers in SUVs, pickups and vans. Authotites suggest the enforcement blitz will also help promote National Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 15-21, through referrals to local child seat resources and seat checkup events throughout the state. The Safety Belt Blitz will also be in conjunction with the Southwestern Oregon DUII Taskforce that will have extra officers out over the Labor Day holiday weekend looking for drivers under the influence. The Coos County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind drivers along the Oregon Coast to enjoy their time here but please observe Oregon’s traffic laws and be safe.

Opinion theworldlink.com/opinion

Let’s have more train rides Our view Rides for passengers on the Coos Bay Rail Line should happen more often .

What do you think? The World welcomes letters. Email us at letters@theworldlink.com.

A thought occurred after seeing how wildly successful last Saturday’s free train rides were to celebrate the Coos Bay Rail Line Rehabilitation project. Why run the passenger cars just one day? What if the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay initiated a run on a regular basis, say during the summer tourism months? Witness how popular last Saturday’s event was. Every one of the four trips conducted that day was packed. Folks had to be turned away. It was just a short run between the

boardwalks in Coos Bay and North Bend, but residents flocked to it. Why wouldn’t more residents and tourists be just as attracted? That short ride could have a lot of potential. First, it links the sister cities in a special way, with a special method. Both cities and chambers of commerce could promote the new cooperative tie between them. The train would be an alternate way to get from one city to the other, allowing folks to shop or just visit between communities.

The ride provides a look at the bay area unlike no other – right next to the bay itself. That's a tourism draw. Who knows. Maybe the Coos Historical and Maritime Center could get involved in the effort, as could the Mill CasinoHotel, becoming whistle stops along the way. Next thing you know, street vendors are offering their wares on the boardwalk terminuses. Concerts and other public events congregate. Another community gathering place is born. Of course, there’s the

cost to be considered. But nothing says the service needs to be free. You could charge a modest ticket price. You could solicit sponsorships and sell advertising. Financing the effort shouldn’t be an impediment to execution. This could be just one more way to introduce some new life and vigor in this area. The potential is all around us if we just change our point of view and think outside the routine. And, riding the train is fun.

Looking evil in the eye The three Oklahoma teenagers were, according to official reports, “bored.” So they decided to do something: kill the guy who jogged past them. They got in the car, followed him and did just that. The district attorney described the youngest, the 15-year-old, as having treated the murder as a “joke.” He reportedly danced as he was booked. The 16-year-old, supposedly the one who pulled the trigger, showed no emotion when he was charged with first-degree murder. Only the 17year-old, who is supposedly cooperating, broke down — and only when the prosecutor referenced the “very, very lengthy prison sentence” he is facing. “I didn't pull the trigger,” he said. So what? OK, I'll play carefully. Assuming the facts presented without contradiction to the court to be true, these boys are evil SUSAN and should rot in hell for ESTRICH what they did. Now, to get even uglier. Columnist The (alleged) killers are African-American. The victim was a young Australian baseball player who attended college in Oklahoma and had just visited his girlfriend. He had a bright future. The three beasts (again, assuming these facts to be true) are not star athletes and college students. Their lives, I'm sure we will be told, are empty and hopeless. I don't know whether you call this a “hate” crime or not. That would turn on whether epithets were uttered, whether the victim was selected because of his race, all of that. It really doesn’t matter. It doesn’t get much uglier than the unprovoked, cold-blooded murder of an innocent victim chosen at random. Anyone who was the least bit outraged by the killing of Trayvon Martin should be screaming bloody murder right now. What makes me wonder whether they will? Mr. President, some thoughts, please? Can you identify with the parents of the kid who went for a jog and ended up dead? No, he doesn’t look anything like you would have at 15, at least judged from the color of his skin, but that isn’t what matters, is it? The real point is that these hooligans — the 15-, 16- and 17-year-old — also bear no relationship to our president when he was that age. Evil comes in all shapes and sizes and colors, and when we see it, we need to call it for what it is. News accounts say the two younger boys have had hard lives. The mother of the 15year-old is in jail. Last year, the 16-yearold lost both his stepfather and his brother. Illness? Murder? Plainly, loss did not make them better people. Perhaps the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Is that cruel? Sure. But we are talking here of pure evil. Plenty of kids grow up surrounded by all forms of depravation, and yet they would never kill a person to fill a boring day. They know, deep down, the difference between good and evil. Plenty of kids grow up with bad parents and bad families and bad problems, but they don’t go shoot a baseball player out for a jog to make their day. It’s not black or white. Evil doesn’t have a color. Evil is evil. Then there’s the guns issue. An Australian politician and gun-control advocate is already calling for a boycott of tourism to America to protest the killings. It is important to know how these beasts got the gun or guns they used. (According to authorities, they were on their way to another home to commit another murder when they were apprehended.) No responsible gun owner could possibly agree that these beasts had any right to possess a weapon. But at the end of the day, they did. And they should pay for it for the rest of their lives.

Constitution will pulverize Obama I'd previously doubted that the deeply concerned bipartisan rebellion in and out of Congress against President Barack Obama’s contemptuous spying on all of us would have lasting impact on him or any of his successors who believe the president is the rule of law. I spoke too soon, according to this headline in the Aug. 17 edition of the New York Daily News: “Pols rip NSA over privacy.” The article highlighted the current revival of the personal liberty legacy of Tom Paine, Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty. What ignited this political outrage was the previous day’s Washington Post, which reported on newly released National Security Agency documents from former agency contractor Edward Snowden. Obama has made Snowden a citizen without a country until he returns from his haven in Russia to be ultimately judged by our Supreme Court, some of whose recent decisions have been supportive of the president in denying us our personal privacy rights. Besides The Washington Post and the Daily News, other members of the media are also awakening to Obama’s belittling of We The People. In last Saturday’s Wall Street Journal, Peggy Noonan quoted me at length: “There are particular constitutional liberty rights that (Ameri-

cans) have that distinguish them from all other people, and one of them is privacy ... “The bad thing is you no longer have the NAT one thing we’re HENTOFF supposed to have as Ameri- Columnist cans living in a self-governing republic” (“What We Lose if We Give Up Privacy,” Noonan, The Wall Street Journal, Aug. 17). And in addition to the media, more Americans are awakening in anger — across party lines — at being betrayed by their unAmerican government. The reporter who has been facilitating Snowden’s breaking news, thus disturbing Obama’s golf games, is The Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald. He’s made Edward Snowden into a household name. Last month, Greenwald reported on “major public opinion shifts in how NSA surveillance and privacy are viewed,” further troubling our leading-from-behind commander-in-chief. He spoke of “a new comprehensive poll released ... by Pew Research (that) provides the most compelling evidence yet of how stark the shift is.” Dig this, Obama. According to

the poll: “A majority of Americans — 56 percent — say that federal courts fail to provide adequate limits on the telephone and Internet data the government is collecting as part of its anti-terrorism efforts. “An even larger percentage (70 percent) believes that the government uses this data for purposes other than investigating terrorism.” You see, we’re a lot smarter than Obama thinks we are. Pew continues: “And despite the insistence by the president and other senior officials that only ‘metadata,’ such as phone numbers and email addresses, is being collected, 63 percent think the government is also gathering information about the content of communications.” Having quoted so much from Pew Research polls, I feel required to say that, as with all polls I reference, I first validate them from other research sources. I have found nearly all the Pew polls I’ve used are accurate. Here are more of its findings: “Nearly half of Americans (47 percent) say their greater concern about government antiterrorism policies is that they have gone too far in restricting the average person’s civil liberties; 35 percent say their greater concern is that they have not gone far enough to adequately protect the country ...

“This is the first time a plurality has expressed greater concern about civil liberties than security since the question was first asked in 2004.” Greenwald, who called these figures the poll’s “most striking finding,” wrote: “For anyone who spent the post-9/11 years defending core liberties against assaults relentlessly perpetrated in the name of terrorism, polling data like that is nothing short of shocking. This conclusion leads me to request that Pew Research and other proven reliable pollsters conduct a carefully, calmly worded national poll. It would ask a wide sampling of Americans — regardless of their politics and other self-identifying characteristics — whether they believe there is seriously documented evidence that indicates President Barack Obama should be impeached for continually defying his oath of office. Twice he has defied that oath, when he swore to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Nat Hentoff is a nationally renowned authority on the First Amendment and the Bill of Rights.

Public Forum Shame on you, Wal-mart Mr. Bill Simon, President and CEO, congratulations for being a part of the largest retailer in the world. Putting together a manufacturing summit, getting together a few states with big companies to join in, plus getting commerce secretary of the U.S. involved is all wonderful, but Mr. Simon, with all due respect, have you lost your ever loving mind? Not once have you mentioned in an article that was in my local newspaper anything about all the employee’s that work at Wal-mart. Wal-mart would not

have gotten where it is today if not because of loyal and hardworking employees. They are your backbone of the company. Mr. Simon, please look in the mirror and give your head a shake — you should really show appreciation to all employees — from managers down to the boxboys. Give them all a raise. And I don’t mean a nickel, dime, or quarter. A dollar to two and a half would show great gratitude and appreciation. You would change a lot of negativity towards Wal-mart because it has a reputation of not letting everyone be qualified to have medical insurance. Wal-mart stores like and love to save money, and to

make money. Well, Mr. Simon, you accomplished that. Now you are about to buy $50 billion in U.S. goods in the next decade. Wal-mart got big and powerful on the backs of the employees. It’s high time that some of the glory be shifted back to what’s more important and the backbone of your company, the employees. Everyone at Walmart should have and deserve medical insurance for themselves and their families. When workers approach around 32-35 hours a week they are given time-off so they don’t hit 40 hours and qualify for insurance. Better pay, medical insurance to managers down to box-boys

would certainly enhance and get rid of a negative and keep your hard-working employees happier. American companies that moved their manufacturing companies abroad should bring them back for American workers. They put out very small wages over there, send products to the U.S. and we pay full retail prices for them. They are making a killing on both ends. Give them approximately three years to bring American companies back home. If they don’t come back, don’t import their products. Brrad Perkins North Bend

Drought promotes duck die-off at wildlife refuge BY JEFF BARNARD Associated Press

Gordon Henry Elroy Jr. April 19, 1935 – Aug. 26, 2013

A graveside service to celebrate the life of Gordon Elroy, 78, of Salem, formerly of North Bend, will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 30, at the Reedsport Masonic Cemetery, 3021 Longwood Drive in Reedsport. Gordon was born April 19, 1935, in Portland, to Gordon Henry Elroy and Frances Ray (Hubler) Elroy. He passed away peacefully Aug. 26, 2013, at the Ava m e re Rehabilitation Center in Salem, while recovering from a recent illness. He is survived by his loving wife of 19 years, Sharen Elroy, who was by his side when he passed. Gordon worked his whole life in the service industry. He started in retail drug stores before settling into the automotive service/parts business as a manager in the North Bend area until his retirement in 1991. Gordon enjoyed coaching youth sports and will always be known as “ Coach Elroy” to many in the community. He connected with many of his children and grandchildren through sports. He had a passion for all sports, but especially the Oregon Ducks. He also loved the outdoors and spent his fair share of time fishing, hunting and golfing with family. His passion later in life was tending to his garden and putting more Christmas lights on his home than Shore Acres! Gordon grew up in Portland, Eugene, Santa Cruz, Calif., and North Bend. He spent his summers at his grandfather’s gold claim in Cave Junction. After graduating from North Bend High School in 1953 he married Marie Ivans, and together they had three daughters. After living in Eugene and San Francisco, he met and married Cora DavidsonHamby. She brought five more children into the family and together they had two more children. Cora passed in 1992 after 22 years of marriage. He later married Sharen Sorensen-Veerkamp in 1994 and she added four more children to the family. Gordon and Sharen moved to Salem to retire. Gordon is survived by his wife, Sharen Elroy; daughters, Kathy Ouellette and her husband, Louis, Debbie McCann and her husband, Jim, Sherri Johnston and her husband, Monte and Betty McKinley and her husband, Brad; son, Lance Elroy and his wife, Beth; stepchildren, Pat Ledyard, Gary and Jean Davidson, David Davidson, Mark and Robin Davidson, Randy and Barb Davidson, Karen and Peter Clements, Jeanette and Larry Martin, Mathew Sorensen and Joseph Sorensen; 14 Elroy grandchildren; nine Sorensen grandchildren; 12 Davidson grandchildren; and more great-grandchildren and extended family members than you can count.

GRANTS PASS — The drought that has forced irrigation shutoffs at cattle ranches in the upper Klamath Basin is also causing hardship for waterfowl on national wildlife refuges in the region. Thousands of ducks are dying from a disease called avian botulism on the Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge near Tule Lake,Calif., due to overcrowded marshes. While the Tule Lake refuge gets water running off a federal irrigation project that’s getting water, current management plans allow none this summer for the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge, which is practically dry. That leads to overcrowding on the marshes at Tule Lake, which promotes the spread of the disease, said refuges biologist Dave Mauser. The 13,000 acres of marsh is supporting some 150,000 birds. So far volunteers have picked up 4,500 dead birds, most of them mallards and other kinds of ducks, in an effort to stop the spread of the disease.Mauser

estimates the disease has killed about 9,000, putting this year on track to be one of the worst this decade. The ducks can’t fly somewhere else, because they are molting and have lost their flight feathers, leaving them stranded for a month, he added. The refuges are a key stop on the Pacific Flyway, and the outlook for this fall is not good, Mauser said. Normally, Lower Klamath would have 20,000 acres flooded now,with water to flood several thousand acres more this fall, after irrigation season is done. But overall the marsh will be about half of normal, and drought is drying up marshes up and down the West Coast, Mauser said. Birds that survive the outbreak may well spread it to other marshes once they embark on their fall migration. “It’s frustrating,” Mauser said.“The way water policies are, we’re last in line for water.” Drought this year has reverberated through the basin. The Klamath Tribes are exercising newly recognized senior water rights to protect fish on rivers on for-

Thornton McCurry picks up a dead duck Tuesday at the Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge near Tule Lake, Calif., where an outbreak of avian botulism is being blamed on overcrowding of birds. Drought has left no water for marshes at the nearby Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge, so Tule Lake has been getting more ducks. So far an estimated 9,000 of the 150,000 birds at Tule Lake have succumbed to the disease. And the outlook for this fall's migration on the Pacific Flyway is not good. mer reservation lands in the upper basin. That has forced irrigation shutoffs to ranches drawing water for cattle pasture. Meanwhile, a federal irrigation project is getting most of the water it needs for farms. But that has left none for Lower Klamath refuge, which is at the end of the line. Meanwhile, water that would normally go to farms in central California is being released to keep Klamath River salmon from dying. Botulism is a toxic bacterium that grows in low oxygen conditions on protein, such as dead fish or birds. Maggots feeding on the rotting flesh take in the toxin, and ducks eating the maggots get sick and die. This strain of botulism does not affect humans, Mauser said. The botulism outbreak comes on the heels of an

avian cholera outbreak in spring 2012 that killed thousands of birds on the Lower Klamath refuge. The severity of that outbreak was also blamed on the lack of water for marshes. U.S. Fish and Wildlife spokesman Matt Baun said there would be water for Lower Klamath refuge this summer if the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement were in force. The negotiated water-sharing agreement provides 51,000 acre feet of water for the refuges in times of drought. The agreement is part of a deal to remove four dams on the Klamath River to improve passage for struggling salmon runs,but has run into a roadblock in the Republican-dominated U.S. House of Representatives, where the idea of dam removal and is not popular. The newly

elected Klamath County Board of Commissioners also opposes it. The conservation group Oregon Wild opposes the agreement because it doesn’t go far enough in guaranteeing water for the refuges. Conservation director Steve Pedery said the promise of water is an empty one, because there is no place to get it, due to the demands elsewhere in the system. He suggests removing commercial farming from Tule Lake refuge, which would free up plenty of water to flood marshes. “The Obama administration is continuing the Bush administration’s faith-based approach to water management in the Klamath Basin. Pray for rain, while pretending the problem isn’t as bad as it looks,” Pedery said in an email.

Two suspects arrested Jackson County in attack on Timbers fan man asks for farm tax break STATE for bee land

PORTLAND (AP) — Authorities say two people have been arrested in connection with an attack on a Portland Timbers fan in downtown in April. The Oregonian reports that 29-year-old Jennifer Marques and 21-year-old Uriel Vargas were arrested by U.S. Marshals in Santa Clara, Calif., on Wednesday. Authorities say 40-yearold James Decker was in his car when he saw a group of San Jose Earthquakes fans walking toward Jeld-Wen Field to attend a match between Portland and San Jose. Decker told officers he yelled at the group and held up his Timbers scarf. Marques then ran toward the car, hit him in the face and tried to grab the scarf. Police say Marques fell as Decker began driving away. When he stopped to check on her, a large group of men jumped onto the hood of his car, smashed the windshield and attacked him. Marques faces assault, unlawful entry of a motor vehicle, harassment and disorderly conduct charges. Police said additional suspects have been identified and they may also face criminal charges.

Pendleton: ‘person of interest’ is in custody PENDLETON (AP) — Pendleton police have captured a man they want to question in connection with a 2012 woman’s slaying and an Aug. 9 attack that critically injured another woman, the police chief confirmed Wednesday night. “We’ve got a pretty important interview to conduct tonight,” Chief Stuart Roberts told the East Oregonian. In previous run-ins, the young transient has given his age as 23 and provided a name police aren’t sure is accurate. Two food service workers spotted him Wednesday night in the Pendleton Convention Center, recognized him from photos in news stories, and called for help. Police armed with assault rifles captured him after a 2 1⁄2 hour search of the center. The man was hiding above a ceiling and an officer spotted his foot hanging down, Roberts said. The young man was taken into custody after a Umatilla County sheriff’s police dog was brought in.

D I G E S T

Karen Lange, 53, of Pendleton, remains hospitalized in Portland after an attacker beat her on the head with a length of galvanized pipe on Aug. 9. The attack took place along the Umatilla River levee. Roberts said surveillance video showed a man following the victim and coming out of a restroom where police believe he cleaned up after the attack. The chief recently said DNA evidence on the pipe matched DNA from a knife at the scene where 19-year-old AmyJane Brandhagen was killed on Aug. 14, 2012. She was killed at her job in a hotel across the street from Pendleton’s City Hall.

‘Where’s Waldo’ bank robber arrested PORTLAND (AP) — Authorities say the convicted bank robber known as the “Where’s Waldo Bandit” for his striped sweater, blackframed glasses and bowl-cut haircut has been arrested on a bank robbery and probation violation warrant. The Oregonian reports that 32-year-old Ryan Homsley was arrested Tuesday night at an Aloha abandoned home after a neighbor called 911. Washington County sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Bob Ray says that Homsley appeared ill when he was arrested and was taken to the hospital. Ray saay Homsley was released into the custody of U.S. Marshals and transferred to the Justice Center Jail in Portland where he was

booked into custody at 12:20 p.m. Wednesday. police Portland spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson says Homsley is a suspect in Monday’s robbery of the U.S. Bank branch.

Man sought in fatal crash surrenders MADRAS (AP) — Oregon State Police say a Prineville man has surrendered after learning he was sought on an arrest warrant in an Aug. 8 traffic crash that fatally injured a paramedic. Police said 36-year-old Gerald Green was booked into the Jefferson County Jail on Wednesday on an accusation of criminally negligent homicide. In the crash on Highway 97 south of Madras, police say a Cadillac driven by Green failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with a motorcycle operated by 64year-old Donald Heckathorn of Madras. The paramedic with Jefferson County EMS ambulance died Aug. 14 in a Bendarea hospital. Green was not injured.

Body of missing man found in lake TOLEDO (AP) — A Lincoln County sheriff’s detective says kayakers found the body of a missing Toledo man in Olalla Lake. Detective Trish Miller said Wednesday that the body of 55-year-old Quinton Selvog was spotted and retrieved Tuesday evening. Selvog had been reported missing and was last seen near the lake on Aug. 19. A search failed to find him then. Miller says the cause of death is under investigation.

Bee owner cites beneficial role of honeybees to neighbors ■

MEDFORD (AP) — A Jackson County man contends that his honeybees are livestock, so the grounds where they forage for nectar and pollen among wildflowers, clover and blackberries should qualify for a lower, agricultural property tax rate. The county says the tillable land is idle and could be used for farming. Unless it is, it’s not eligible for the lower rate, county officials have argued. The difference is worth about $1,000 a year in the property tax bill on Leroy and Nancy Wehde’s 40a c re p ro p e r ty o u ts i d e Rogue River, the Medford M a i l Tr i b u n e re p o r te d Wednesday. John Jacob owns Old Sol Apiaries and, depending on the season, keeps between 30 and 300 hives on his land, which is half in forest, half cleared. The dispute is over the cleared part. Jacob’s hives sit on about an acre of it, which qualifies that for the

lower farm use tax rate. But the county in 2011 disqualified 19 cleared acres on the grounds that it wasn’t being used at its “highest and best use,” such as for growing hay, grains, fruit trees, or for timber or pasture. The hives are clustered near the edge of the property, for Jacob’s convenience and to minimize bee stings elsewhere. The bees produce honey, but most of Jacob’s revenue comes from leasing bees to orchard owners during pollination season, generating larger yields of almonds and pears. Jacob also sells diseaseresistant queen bees and contends the property is “one of the best” in the area for bee foraging because of the variety of plants and the wooded area. A tax court magistrate, Dan Robinson, upheld the county action. He said the bees forage beyond the boundary of the property, a n d t h e co u p l e h a d n ’t established that the bees’ needs for foraging kept the co u p l e f ro m u s i n g t h e cleared land for agriculture. Jackson County’s assessor, Josh Gibson, said the tax court has a backlog, and a decision could take a year.

School districts quit healthier lunch program BY CAROLYN THOMPSON The Associated Press

After just one year, some schools around the country are dropping out of the healthier new federal lunch program, complaining that so many students turned up their noses at meals packed with whole grains, fruits and vegetables that the cafeterias were losing money. Federal officials say they

don’t have exact numbers but have seen isolated reports of schools cutting ties with the $11 billion National School Lunch Program, which reimburses schools for meals served and gives them access to lowerpriced food. Districts that rejected the program say the reimbursement was not enough to offset losses from students who began avoiding the lunch

Pennsylvania police chief is under fire for videos

NATIONAL D I G E S T Obama calls for America to seize cause of 1960s civil rights ‘patriots’ WASHINGTON (AP) — For many among the tens of thousands of Americans who thronged to the National Mall to mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, President Barack Obama’s challenge to seize the cause of racial equality from the “glorious patriots” of the tumultuous 1960s struck a deep generational chord. Standing on hallowed ground for the civil rights movement, the very steps on the Lincoln Memorial from which the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke a half-century ago, Obama urged each person in the crowd Wednesday to become a modern-day marcher for racial harmony and economic justice. “The arc of the moral universe may bend toward justice but it doesn’t bend on its own,” Obama said in an allusion to King’s own message. The nation’s first black president and civil rights pioneers joined the crowd under showery skies 50 years to the day that King, with soaring oratory and a steely countenance, delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech, pleading for Americans to unite and create a land of opportunity for all.

Preemie study sparks debate on research

Nearly 800 years after King John tried to avert a civil war by issuing the Magna Carta, the delicate version of the document is coming to the United States and will be displayed at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

Copy of Magna Carta coming to Houston

WASHINGTON (AP) — Dagen Pratt’s parents enrolled their tiny premature baby in a study of oxygen treatment believing she’d get the best possible care. They didn’t understand it was an experiment to test what dose works best. No one mentioned any risks. Now 6, Dagen struggles with cerebral palsy, and they wonder: Is that long-ago study to blame? “Tell me that the support study did not hurt Dagen in any way,” her father, Shawn Pratt, challenged a government panel on Wednesday as his daughter, dressed in a bright sundress, stood quietly by. A major controversy has erupted over what sounds like a straightforward question: How much should patients be told about the potential risks before they’re enrolled in certain kinds of medical research? The issue isn’t about how to study a brand-new, unapproved therapy. All sides agree that those studies must fully inform participants that there’s no guarantee the experiment will work, or even be safe.

THE FIRST FRIDAY EACH MONTH

GILBERTON, Pa. (AP) — Police Chief Mark Kessler expects to be fired for posting incendiary videos in which he ranted obscenely about the Second Amendment and liberals while spraying machinegun fire with borough-owned weapons. But Kessler, whose progun videos have garnered hundreds of thousands of views online, has no intention of going away quietly. With an Internet radio show, speaking invitations to gun rallies around the country and a newly formed “Constitution Security Force” that he claims already has chapters in 45 states, the 41year-old coal miner-turnedcop said his message - that the federal government is too big, too powerful and wants to grab guns - is resonating with a segment of the public that believes as he does. “The support has been overwhelming, both national and international,” he said. “I find it truly amazing how many people finally said, ‘You know what? This guy’s right.”’ Friday is the last day of Kessler’s 30-day suspension over what the Gilberton council has said was unauthorized use of the weapons. The council could decide his fate Friday night. But if Kessler’s worried about losing job, he’s not showing it. “If that’s the price I got to pay for standing up for what I believe in, apparently for what

a lot of Americans believe in, I’m willing to pay that price,” said Kessler, speaking to The Associated Press at a gun range near Gilberton in northeast Pennsylvania. If anything, his rhetoric has grown even more menacing. This week, Kessler posted another potty-mouthed video in which he displayed paper targets with scary-looking clowns on them, dubbed “Eric” and “Danny.” Those happen to be the first names of Council President Daniel Malloy and Vice President Eric Boxer, whom he has attacked on his website. Patting an assault rifle, Kessler said, “This is the friend that Eric’s going to meet today.” After firing a volley at the target, he said, “Eric got a couple rounds to the head.” In an earlier video, Kessler savaged Secretary of State John Kerry as a “traitor” over a U.S.-backed international arms treaty. “COME AND TAKE IT!” he screamed, firing a machine gun. Kessler said he posted that video and others like it partly out of frustration, and partly in an effort to get people to pay attention to an issue he holds dear: the erosion of Second Amendment and other constitutional rights. “It was shock and awe,” he said. “I could have went out there and did a nice video ... and nobody would’ve gave it a

second look.” Now that he’s achieved a measure of notoriety for his obscenity-filled rants against government tyranny and people he calls “libtards,” Kessler said he worries the federal government will try to silence him. He predicted chaos if that happens. “God help them if something should happen to me,” he said. “I believe that could spark the next American Revolution.” Kessler insisted he’s “not calling for anybody to take up arms against our government.” But he also warned the government would be in a fight if it ever tried to take away his guns. “I would resist,” he said. “I’d fight for freedom, and if it cost me my life, then so be it.” The FBI said it’s aware of the police chief and his videos. Kessler said he decided to speak out after the Obama administration began a push for new gun laws in response to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Most Gilberton residents approached by the AP this week declined to speak on the record. Kessler, who is married with four children and two grandchildren, acknowledged how the videos portray him. “I kind of look scary,” he said. “I’ve been labeled the scariest police chief in the country.”

Oklahoma town has worms in water OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Beating the late-summer heat isn’t as easy as running to the sink in one northeast Oklahoma town, as residents there are being asked not to drink tap water after red worms were found in the filtering system. The worms — ranging from a half-inch to an inch long — showed up earlier this week in the drinking water supply in Colcord, a small town about 80 miles east of Tulsa. City councilman Terry Wood said city water was turned back on Wednesday morning after workers cleaned, drained and recleaned the water tower. No worms were found in the tower, he said.

“We are still looking into this problem. I mean we need to get to the bottom of it and we will continue to investigate and do pretty much what we need to do to find out what happened here,” Wood said. Residents are being asked not to consume the water or use it to brush teeth or prepare food, Wood said, but it can be used for showers and other activities. Erin Hatfield, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality, said it’s uncommon for red worms to show up in a water system in the state, though it’s fairly common in the southeastern United States.

World Angry teachers paralyze Mexico City with protests

Iraq bombs kill 80 BAGHDAD (AP) — Car bomb blasts and other explosions tore through mainly Shiite districts around Baghdad during morning rush hour Wednesday in a day of violence that killed at least 80, intensifying worries about Iraq’s ability to tame the spiraling mayhem gripping the country. It was the latest set of large-scale sectarian attacks to hit Iraq, even as the government went on “ high alert” in case a possible Western strike in neighboring Syria increases Iraq’s turmoil. A relentless wave of killing has left thousands dead since April in the country’s worst spate of bloodshed since 2008. The surge in violence raises fears that Iraq is hurtling back toward the widespread sectarian killing that peaked in 2006 and 2007, when the country was teetering on the edge of civil war. Most of Wednesday’s attacks happened within minutes of each other as people headed to work or were out shopping early in the day. Insurgents unleashed explosives-laden cars, suicide bombers and other bombs that targeted parking lots, outdoor markets and restaurants in predominantly Shiite areas in and around Baghdad, officials said. A military convoy was hit south of the capital. Security forces sealed off the blast scenes as ambulances raced to pick up the wounded. The twisted wreckage of cars littered the pavement while cleaners and shop owners brushed away debris. Two bombs went off in a parking lot in Kazimiyah, followed by a suicide car bomber who struck onlookers who had gathered at the scene. Police said the attack killed 10 people and wounded 27.

A poster showing Egypt's ousted President Mohammed Morsi with Arabic slogan reading, "no revenge without trials," hangs in a popular coffee shop in Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt.

Brotherhood relatives rounded up in Egypt CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian authorities detained more than 60 people associated with the Muslim Brotherhood in less than 24 hours, including relatives of the group’s leaders, officials said Wednesday. The crackdown on the group, from which ousted President Mohammed Morsi hails, started shortly after the July 3 coup. It intensified this month after security forces cleared out two of the group’s sit-ins, killing hundreds and sparking unrest that killed more than 1,000 people in a few days. The Interior Ministry says more than 100 policemen and soldiers have also been killed since midAugust. The local media, in close step with the new leadership after Morsi, repeatedly describe the actions of the Brotherhood and its supporters as acts of terrorism. Many have been charged with inciting violence. Security forces have arrested much the Brotherhood’s senior and midlevel leadership, while others remain in hiding. Some in Egypt fear the Brotherhood’s once powerful political party and its allies could be barred from politics and be forced

the city’s main boulevard. “People will get out and say, ‘I’ll walk instead.’ They’ll get on these eco-bikes,” he said, referring to the city’s bike-sharing program. Cesar Juarez, 30, who works repairing wireless systems for a telecom company, sat in his car at an intersection blocked by protesters, shooting photos with his cellphone to show his boss why he couldn’t reach a client. The cause of this upheaval is a government reform program that would subject teachers to periodic evaluations in the form of standardized tests, and end the unions’ power over hiring. That would be a jolt to an education system in which some teachers can actually inherit their jobs from their parents. Juan Melchor Roman, one of the leaders of the striking teachers, said the union was aware of the growing anger among city residents. “But we think that is being whipped up by the news media,” he said. “We are asking the public to understand the teachers’ struggle ... and understand us a little.” The union says a standardized test is an unfair way to evaluate a teacher’s entire career, and argues that parents and student evaluations and other factors should be taken into account. The government counters that teachers will have multiple chances to pass the test, and says failing teachers won’t be fired, but re-assigned outside the classroom.

MEXICO CITY (AP) — This sprawling metropolis of honking cars and 22 million harried people has been brought to its knees, not by an earthquake or its ominous smoking volcanoes, but rather a small contingent of angry school teachers. Some 10,000 educators protesting a government reform program have in the span of a week disrupted international air travel, forced the cancellation of two major soccer matches, rerouted the planned route of the marathon and jammed up already traffic-choked freeways. The disruptions have shown how little it takes to push a city that is snarled on a good day over the edge. Taxi drivers are so desperate they are refusing fares to certain frequently blocked parts of the city, and residents have turned to urban survival skills — driving the wrong way down streets, using rental bikes, clambering over fences and piling into the back of police pickups to get to their destinations. The city even launched an app on Tuesday that warns drivers of protest locations, with a little orange icon of what appears to be a city resident climbing a mountain marking each blockade or march. “It’s terrible. There’s no business ... people don’t even want to get into a cab, because the traffic isn’t going anywhere,” taxi driver Ernesto Gallegos said disconsolately Wednesday, standing beside his parked cab on the curb of

underground again. In an interview late Tuesday with the Arabic satellite channel MBC Misr, interim Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi said dissolving the group is not a solution and warned against taking dramatic decisions during turbulent times. He suggested it is better that the government monitor political parties rather than force any to operate secretly, as the group had done for decades. But in a widening campaign, police have started going after members’ relatives, including the son of Khairat el-Shater, a Brotherhood deputy and financier charged in relation to the killings of protesters outside the group’s headquarters in June. A U.S. citizen, the son of a fugitive Brotherhood figure, was also detained this week. It was not immediately clear why police detained el-Shater’s 23-year-old son. Officials only said Wednesday that police had arrested Saad el-Shater and that he had threatened to release documents allegedly showing ties between his father and U.S. President Barack Obama. Officials did not elaborate.

Pakistan to hold retrial of doctor who helped CIA PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A senior judicial official has overturned the prison sentence of a Pakistani doctor who helped the CIA find Osama bin Laden. The official has also

Afghan National Army soldiers stand guard on the outskirts of in Kabul,Afghanistan. Ghazni and neighboring Wardak province have become a hotbed of insurgent activity in the past year.

Afghan army improving, but public fears mount KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Hamida Gulistani was getting ready to leave home for her office when she heard the crack of gunfire. What she saw as she peered through the steel gates of her house deepened her fears about the future of her country. Her driver lay dead. Her neighbor was shouting that Gulistani’s house was under attack. And the Afghan army and police weren’t responding to her phone calls. As an elected provincial councilor, and thus a prime target for the Taliban, she feared her time was up. “I kept calling the police chief and other security forces, but by the time they arrived it was too late. The attackers took my car and drove away,” said the 40year-old human rights activist. She has since moved from her province of Ghazni to the relatively safer capital, Kabul. Ghazni and neighboring Wardak province have become a hotbed of insurgent activity in the past year, mainly along the main high-

way which links Kabul to Kandahar in the south and runs through Gulistani’s home town. Dozens of abductions and killings are reported weekly on the highway, and Afghans are beginning to worry that the nascent Afghan National Security Forces taking over the defense of Afghanistan won’t be up to the job. Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, who runs the day-to-day coaliin tion campaign Afghanistan, says only a small stretch of the 1,200mile road has been affected. Less than three months after the Afghan forces took over primary responsibility for national security from the U.S.-led coalition, Milley says he’s sure they are capable of operating alone, carrying out large-scale operations around the country with little support from the U.S.-led coalition. But while the Americans sound upbeat, there’s a growing fear among Afghans about what happens if the Western umbrella folds up. The deadline for the with-

drawal of U.S. and NATO combat troops is just 16 months away, and President Hamid Karzai is stalling on a deal to keep some of those troops here as backup. “All the people who voted for me have many concerns for 2014,” says Gulistani. “The people are so disappointed, hopeless for the future of Ghazni.” They fear a return to the chaos and civil war of the 1990s that gave rise to the Taliban, the arrival of Osama Bin Laden and his cohorts, and ultimately the Sept. 11 attacks and the U.S.-led invasion. There’s skepticism about whether the Afghan forces can protect the presidential election set for next April — the first without Karzai, who has governed Afghanistan since the 2001 invasion and is constitutionally barred from running again. For Afghans who fear a Taliban resurgence, longterm security depends on a continued $8 billion a year in Western funding of the government and security forces.

The inspectors’ departure from Syria on Saturday could clear the path for possible military action against the Assad regime. U.N.

The suspected chemical weapons attacks took place Aug. 21 in suburbs east and west of Damascus. The humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders has said the strikes killed 355 people.

Oregon’s exchange is funded by federal grants through 2014. In 2015, it will be self-sufficient, Cox said. Oregon passed Senate Bill 99 in 2011, which meant the state would provide its own exchange. It was one of 19 states that opted not to use the Department of Human Services as a “one stop shop,” Cox said. There are about 600,000

Oregonians without health insurance, Cox said. He said he was glad they would decrease that number. “We look forward to providing Oregonians a place to access healthcare,” Cox said.

vide a little more background in regards to Wonnacott’s arrest at the Eugene Airport. Monson would not comment on whether or not they have the weapon that the suspect allegedly brandished, only adding that he was taken into custody as he got off a plane returning from Nevada. He did say that there was evidence seized from his baggage and a vehicle he had parked at the airport. If the two sides do not reach an agreement before

the Sept. 24 change of plea hearing, the case will move forward with an Omnibus hearing set for 3 p.m. Oct. 28. and trial dates that have been scheduled for Dec. 3, 4 and 5. Hamilton indicated the Ominibus, which handles all pre-trial motions, could be a two-hour affair. She indicated that, among other things, it could deal with the admission of statements into evidence and issues with identification. Wonnacott remains in custody with bail set at $250,000.

toward a punitive strike, saying he has “concluded” that Assad’s regime is behind the attacks and that there “need to be international consequences.” The U.S. has not presented proof in public. The Syrian regime has denied a role in the attacks, alleging instead, without presenting evidence, that anti-government rebels carried them out to frame Assad. The Syrian president struck a tough tone Thursday. “Threats to launch a direct aggression against Syria will make it more adherent to its well-established principles and sovereign decisions stemming from the will of its people, and Syria will defend itself against any aggression,” Assad said .

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syrian President Bashar Assad said Thursday that his country “will defend itself against any aggression,” signaling defiance to mounting Western warnings of a possible punitive strike over a suspected poison gas attack blamed on his regime. U.N. chemical weapons inspectors toured stricken rebel-held areas near the Syrian capital of Damascus for a third day Thursday. Amateur video posted online showed U.N. inspectors wearing gas masks walking through a damaged building. One inspector scooped pulverized debris from the ground, placed it in a glass container and wrapped the container in a plastic bag.

Mud run shows big potential One of the biggest crazes in the running world now is long races littered with challenging obstacles. The three most popular styles are the Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash and Reebok Spartan Races, which draw thousands of runners across the country. Earlier this summer, we highlighted a local group of athletes who traveled to Eastern Oregon for the Tough Mudder, a 10-mile team challenge where you have to work together. That event was sold out for two straight days. More recently, more than 5,000 people took part over two days in an individual 3-mile Spartan race near Portland filled with 18 obstacles, the worst a steep mud hill that reportedly slowed the waves of runners to a crawl. Early next month, thousands of runners will take part in a 3mile Warrior Dash near Portland, paying $75 for the privilege of testing themselves over a course with 12 obstacles. All of those races are well established and feature mud as a common element. Now the Bay Area has its own mud run. North Bend track coach Jake Smith and boys soccer coach Tom Zomerschoe created the Dirty Dawg Dash, on a course linking their two properties with the hope of building a tradition that will serve as a popular fundraiser for both programs. If last weekSPORTS end’s race is any indication, their idea will work. Without a huge amount of advance publicity, the Dirty Dawg Dash drew more than 100 entrants, including one JOHN editor GUNTHER sports who wasn’t sure what he was getting himself into. I wasn’t at all concerned about the distance — 2.1 miles — or the elevation changes — my workouts often include gnarly hills. But when Smith mentioned two 6-foot wooden walls to scale and a waist-deep mud pit to go through, my confidence was gone. Upper body strength has never been one of my assets. Similarly, even from my youngest days, I’ve never been fond of playing in mud. Yet those elements couldn’t keep me from at least giving the event a try, and I found myself weaving my way through a group of fast starters alongside my training partner Alysha. We got to the top of the initial hill ahead of most of the pack and I was pleasantly surprised to get over both walls on my first try. And so it went, through every obstacle — sliding on my back along a mud track, climbing over a tall wooden A-frame structure, carrying an alder pole around a loop, sloshing through the mud pit and scampering up a dirt hill, crawling on hands and knees through a narrow wooden tunnel and then on my belly under a row of ribbons (when soldiers practice this obstacle they go under barbed wire). After a number of hurdles, we found one final obstacle, a wooden structure we had to climb up and through to a downhill water slide into a mud bath. One last charge up a dusty hill and we were done. At the finish, I saw many muddy runners, but nobody without smiles. Some talked about the challenge. Nobody said they regretted joining in. As for that sports editor … my finishing time of just over 17 minutes was good enough to place behind three soccer players, one cross country runner and North Bend wrestling coach Larry Workman. Kudos to Brant Hamner, son of my longtime colleague Elise, who was the only person to catch me from behind in the race. As for Alysha, she was the first woman across the line and quickly grabbed her camera to take a few pictures to run with results on our Community Sports page Saturday. For a trial run, the Dirty Dawg Dash went well. The big test comes next year, when the runners have to pay to participate— the race was free this year. But Saturday showed the event can become a success — getting dirty for a good cause.

North Bend’s players warm up before a recent practice at Vic Adams Field. The Bulldogs open the season at home Friday.

Football season opens Friday night North Bend hosts Molalla and Marshfield travels to jamboree ■

BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World

NORTH BEND — As September approaches and the first day of school is looming for students, the final shoe to drop that annually rings in the school year is coming tomorrow: Friday night lights. Football is back up and down the South Coast with games and glorified scrimmages scattering from Siuslaw all the way down to Gold Beach. “Everyone’s really anxious for the games and for the season to start, get everything rolling,” North Bend’s junior quarterback

Cam Lucero said. “It feels like football just ended yesterday, (the offseason has) been going by so fast, but I think everybody’s ready to go.” Around the South Coast, Siuslaw will host Scio, Gold Beach is home against Salem Academy and Brookings-Harbor will travel to face against Phoenix. Outside of sanctioned games, Reedsport and Bandon travel to Coquille for a jamboree on Friday. Marshfield will head up to Junction City for a jamboree to open up its first season as a Class 4A school and first action under new head coach Josh Line. The biggest game locally is a rematch of North Bend’s 58-31 zero week win against Mololla last season. This year, the Bulldogs will host the back end of the homeand-home and look for the first taste of redemption since losing in

the 2012 Class 4A championship game to Baker. Bulldog coach Gary Prince expects a good atmosphere on their home turf and knows North Bend should have a relatively raucous crowd for a late August game. But when it comes to play on the field, it’s really about limiting mistakes and Prince just wants to get his young quarterback and other key players comfortable with his tempo of play. As great a building block as this game could potentially be, Prince knows having such a quick turnaround won’t make for an easy game for his team to compete in. “I guess we get a really good look at our kids instead of doing a scrimmage style format but it’s going to be very tough,” Prince said. “I don’t know if there’s a lot of pros. We’re just going to get as

ready as we can.” All four of the regular games start at 7 p.m. Friday. The jamboree in Coquille starts at 5, while the jamboree at Junction City begins at 6. Siuslaw’s contest is an interesting cross-section matchup between the Vikings, a regular Class 4A playoff squad, and the Loggers, a Class 3A school that has been one of the state’s better small-school programs. In Salem Academy, Gold Beach faces a new foe as the Panthers start their typically tough preseason. Though the Crusaders haven’t been to the playoffs since 1991, they did finish 6-4 in the tough Class 3A PacWest Conference last fall. It’s the first of two visits to the South Coast for Salem Academy, which returns Sept. 14 to face Coquille in a rare Saturday afternoon game.

Manziel gets slap on wrist for autographs HOUSTON (AP) — Johnny Football has done it again. Facing another problem that could have derailed his football career, Texas A&M’s Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel has evaded serious punishment one more time. Manziel was suspended Wednesday for the first half of the Aggies’ season opener against Rice on Saturday for what the school said was an “inadvertent” violation of NCAA rules involving signing autographs. The quarterback was being investigated for allegedly accepting money for autographs from memorabilia brokers, a violation of NCAA rules that could have led to a much longer suspension. ESPN first reported the allegations against Manziel earlier this month. The latest problem isn’t the first time off-the-field trouble has put Manziel’s career in jeopardy. Manziel was arrested last summer after a bar fight near campus and charged with disorderly conduct, possession of a fake ID and failure to identify himself to

The Associated Press

Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel will miss the first half of Texas A&M’s season opener Saturday. police. It was an incident that put him in danger of being suspended from school and left him having to earn the starting job in fall camp. Manziel admitted this June that he failed to identify himself to police following the altercation. As part of a plea deal, other

charges against the 20-year-old, including disorderly conduct, were dismissed, and it looked as though Manziel’s trouble was behind him before the latest problems came to light. The news of Manziel’s suspension was the talk of Twitter

on Wednesday, with many questioning the length of the suspension. Former NFL and MLB star Deion Sanders was incredulous at the brevity of Manziel’s suspension, after Dez Bryant was suspended for an entire season while at Oklahoma State after lying about having dinner with Sanders. “Can we investigate the investigators? @DezBryant got suspended a season 4 lying about a dinner that wasnt a violation & Manziel gets a half,” Sanders tweeted soon after the ruling was made public. The decision also had a major impact in Las Vegas, where the odds of Manziel’s chances of repeating as a Heisman winner and Texas A&M’s chances of winning the national championship shifted dramatically. RJ Bell, the founder of sports betting website Pregame.com, said Manziel’s chances of winning the Heisman jumped from 12/1 to 6/1, and the team’s shot at the title increased from 18/1 to 10/1.

Venus makes another early U.S. Open exit NEW YORK (AP) — Venus Williams had a backhand volley into the open court for match point. She stumbled as she stepped into the shot, and the ball bashed into the net. The 33-yearold American stood up slowly and grimaced. After more than three hours, she didn’t have one more point left. Williams lost 6-3, 2-6, 7-6 (5) to 56thranked Zheng Jie of China on a wet Wednesday at Flushing Meadows. It is the third year in a row that the two-time champion is out of the U.S. Open after two rounds. Williams has been slowed the past couple of years by an autoimmune disease that saps energy. Much of this season, she has been hampered by a bad back. And so the questions come about how much longer she’ll step onto the court. “The last few months haven’t been easy, coming back from the back injury, one of the more challenging injuries I’ve dealt with,” she said. “I feel like it’s definitely affected my game, but I’m working on it. I’m a fighter. Just like today, I didn’t play my best, but I tried as hard as I could. Tried not to get down.

“So I’ll continue playing matches. For me it would be awesome if I could play another match right away, but unfortunately I have to wait weeks to play. That stops the momentum. Maybe this fall I’m going to maybe enter consecutive tournaments, so even if I do have a bad match I can hopefully play sooner so I can just get some rhythm.” Williams acquitted herself well for stretches, erasing deficits over and over again, until she simply ran out of solutions against Zheng, a former top-15 player and twice a major semifinalist. In what she took as an encouraging sign, Williams was out there for 3 hours, 2 minutes, tying for the fifth-longest women’s match since 1970 at the U.S. Open. The third set 1 alone lasted 1 ⁄2 hours. “I was like, ‘Wow, this is a marathon,”’ Williams said. She wound up with 44 unforced errors in all, half on forehands, in part because Zheng kept scrambling along the baseline to get to balls and block them back, making Williams hit extra shots.

Puig makes early exit in victory THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES — Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig was pulled by manager Don Mattingly after four innings following a pair of early episodes, and Los Angeles beat the Chicago Cubs 4-0 Wednesday. Puig didn’t slide into second base to try to break up a double play in the first inning, then slammed his bat after striking out in the third. The Cuban newcomer is hitting .346. Puig met with Mattingly and general manager Ned Colletti behind closed doors after the game. Ricky Nolasco (11-9) pitched eight innings of three-hit ball. He struck out 11 and won his sixth straight start in August. Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier homered as the first-place Dodgers earned their 21st victory in August, tying the Los Angeles record for most wins in a calendar month. Pirates 7, Brewers 1: Marlon Byrd celebrated his arrival in Pittsburgh with a three-run homer and the Pirates beat Milwaukee. Byrd, acquired along with catcher John Buck from the New York Mets on Tuesday, hit his 22nd homer of the season into the bushes in center field in the seventh inning as Pittsburgh ended a three-game losing streak. Reds 10, Cardinals 0: Jay Bruce homered and drove in five runs as Cincinnati tagged Adam Wainwright, leading Homer Bailey and the Reds over St. Louis to avoid a three-game sweep. The Reds came out swinging against the NL Central leaders a few hours after Brandon Phillips’ expletive-filled tirade at a news-

Bailey (9-10) capped a six-run first against Wainwright (15-8) with the Reds’ sixth hit and his first RBI of the season. Bailey gave up five hits in 7 1-3 innings, striking out seven in his fourth straight win. Wainwright matched a career worst by giving up nine runs and lasted two innings for his shortest outing of the year. Phillies 6, Mets 2: Cole Hamels pitched seven strong innings and handed himself some much-needed run support, sending Philadelphia

past the New York Mets. Carlos Ruiz homered and the Phillies overcame a couple of mental mistakes by shortstop Jimmy Rollins to win for only the third time in 17 road games. Hamels hit a two-run single to help Philadelphia improve to 8-5 under interim manager Ryne Sandberg. Nationals 4, Marlins 3: Ian Desmond had three hits, including the go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning, and Washington kept pace on the fringes of the playoff race with a rain-delayed win over Miami. Desmond also scored a run and stole a base, and

poned entirely, including Williams’ younger sister Serena against Galina Voskoboeva. More than four hours of delays during the day meant 2012 champion Andy Murray did not play his first point of the tournament until 9:55 p.m., making for the third-latest start to a U.S. Open night session.

Chacin (13-7) tied a season high with nine strikeouts. Brandon Crawford’s single to center field was the only hit Chacin allowed in seven innings. He also yielded an unearned run. Padres 5, Arizona 1: Will Venable homered and drove in three runs, Robbie Erlin pitched six effective innings in his return to the majors and the San Diego Padres avoided a three-game sweep with a win over Arizona. Erlin (2-2) was sharp after being called up from TripleA Tucson, holding the Diamondbacks to a run and six hits.

INTERLEAGUE Braves 3, Indians 2: Chris Johnson singled to left with two outs in the ninth inning for his first career walk-off hit and the Atlanta Braves won again at home, beating Cleveland. Jordan Schafer drove in Atlanta’s first two runs, then scored the winner after reaching on an infield single and stealing his second base of the night. Freddie Freeman was intentionally walked before Johnson lined a 2-2 pitch to left off Joe Smith (5-2).

five unforced errors. A little past midnight, 33year-old American James Blake’s singles career came to an end with a 6-7 (2), 3-6, 64, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (2) loss to 6foot-10 Ivo Karlovic of Croatia. Blake, once ranked as high as No. 4 and a threetime major quarterfinalist, announced Monday that the U.S. Open would be his last professional tournament. No. 17 Kevin Anderson of South Africa, No. 20 Andreas Seppi of Italy, No. 21 Mikhail Youzhny of Russia, 2001 U.S. Open champ Lleyton Hewitt and 109th-ranked American wild-card entry T im Smyczek were among the day’s winners. But No. 16 Fabio Fognini, No. 24 Benoit Paire and No. 29 Jurgen Melzer lost, meaning 10 of the 32 seeded men bowed out in the first round. The last match of the long day began in Ashe shortly before midnight, and it was over before 1 a.m., because 15th-seeded American Sloane Stephens needed only 58 minutes to beat 38thranked Urszula Radwanska of Poland 6-1, 6-1.

Boston’s Jacoby Ellsbury slides into home to score on a single by Dustin Pedroia during the seventh inning Wednesday.

Red Sox edge Orioles THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON — Pinch hitter Mike Carp’s bloop single to left in the eighth dropped just beyond the glove of Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado, scoring Jarrod Saltalamacchia from second with the tiebreaking run and lifting the Boston Red Sox to a 4-3 win over the Orioles on Wednesday night. Shane Victorino drove in a run for Boston with an RBI single after collecting a AL careerbest seven Recap RBIs and hitting two homers in a 13-2 win on Tuesday night. Craig Breslow (4-2) got two outs to earn the win and Koji Uehara got his 14th save with a perfect ninth for the AL East-leading Red Sox, who won their fourth straight. Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 47th homer and added an RBI double for Baltimore, which lost for the sixth time in its last eight games. Saltalamacchia hit a twoout double high off the leftfield wall against Tommy Hunter (3-3) and Stephen Drew was walked intentionally before Carp’s bloop fell just past the glove off Machado in short left field. Rangers 12, Mariners 4: Leonys Martin homered and drove in a career-high four runs and Texas roughed up Felix Hernandez in a win over Seattle. The AL West-leading Rangers tagged Hernandez (12-8) for nine runs and 11 hits in three-plus innings. The former AL Cy Young winner’s ERA climbed from 2.63 to 2.97. Martin Perez (8-3) limited the Mariners to two runs and five hits in six innings. The rookie won his fifth straight decision. Athletics 14, Tigers 4: Brandon Moss homered twice and drove in six runs to lead Oakland over Detroit. Moss has three home runs in his past two games for the A’s, who had a season-high 21 hits and have won the first three games of the four-game series by a combined score of 28-13. Josh Donaldson had three hits and drove in two runs, and Eric Sogard had two RBIs for Oakland.

Blue Jays 7, Yankees 2: Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run home run, rookie Todd Redmond snapped a seven-start winless streak and Toronto beat New York. The Blue Jays took two out of three from the Yankees after losing 12 of their first 13 meetings this season. They’re 3-3 against New York at home and 0-10 on the road. Redmond (2-2) left to a standing ovation after striking out Alfonso Soriano and Alex Rodriguez to begin the sixth inning. He allowed two runs and three hits, walked four and struck out seven for his first victory since beating Minnesota on July 7. Rays 4, Angels 1: Chris Archer pitched seven strong innings, David DeJesus scored twice and Tampa Bay ended Los Angeles’ fourgame winning streak. Archer (8-5) allowed one run and five hits while striking out five. For the fifth time in his last 10 starts, the rookie right-hander did not walk a batter. Archer breezed through the first six innings, scattering three singles and facing 20 batters, only two over the minimum. Royals 8, Twins 1: Salvador Perez had four hits and two home runs, Danny Duffy pitched 6 2-3 shutout innings and Kansas City beat Minnesota. Perez hit two-run shots in the fourth and eighth innings as the Royals won their fourth straight. Duffy (2-0) allowed five hits and struck out seven in his third start for Kansas City since having elbow surgery last June. The Twins struck out 10 times and set the club record for strikeouts in a season with 31 games to go. Minnesota batters have fanned 1,127 times, breaking the previous mark of 1,121 set in 1997. White Sox 6, Astros 1: Chris Sale struck out 12 over eight-plus dominant innings and Avisail Garcia hit a threerun homer to lead Chicago to a win over Houston. Garcia finished with three hits for the White Sox, who have won 10 of their last 12 games. Sale (10-12) bounced back from an embarrassing start Friday night against Texas in which he allowed a careerworst four home runs. Against Houston, he gave up only one run on four hits.

Sports LPGA Tour returns to Portland course Safeway Classic also expands to a four-day event ■

The Associated Press

Lindsey Vonn works out with Red Bull coach Martin Hager in Vail, Colo., on Wednesday.

Vonn nears a return to the slopes VAIL, Colo. (AP) — For six months, Lindsey Vonn has thought about little else other than her reunion with skiing. She spent four hours a day in the gym trying to get her surgically repaired right knee healthy enough to step back into her ski boots. She spent even more hours sitting by a river bank with a fly-fishing rod in her hands, peacefully pondering what it would feel like to return. A thought she would quickly stifle — too painful with her knee still mending. “Because I feel like I’m claustrophobic when I’m not skiing,” Vonn said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday. “I just want to go fast.” And very soon, that will happen again. Vonn is way, way, way ahead of schedule in her return to the slopes. She wasn’t supposed to be back on snow until around November. But she’s planning to ski this weekend in Portillo, Chile. Nothing too aggressive, of course, just a few easy runs with the U.S. team to test out her knee. But later at the camp, she’s hoping to navigate through some slalom gates and maybe, just maybe — knee willing, of course — even open it up on the course.

“But my expectations are sometimes a little bit out of whack,” said Vonn, who announced in March she’s dating golfer Tiger Woods. The four-time overall World Cup champion is eyeing a possible return to competition in late November at a stop in Beaver Creek, Colo., which is near her hometown of Vail. That’s about three months ahead of the Sochi Olympics in February, where she will defend her downhill title. As for her expectations in Sochi, well, they remain as lofty as ever. “I wouldn’t change my odds, just because I was injured,” Vonn said. “I’m going to be back just as good, if not better, than I was before.” First, it starts with taking a few easy turns on snow. Her surgeon, Dr. Bill Sterett, has already put some restrictions on the return. Namely, she must wear a brace. “We’re negotiating,” Vonn said. “He’d rather I wear it to have a little bit more stability.” After all, she is coming off a major knee injury. Vonn shredded her ACL and MCL

ligaments during a bad crash at the world championships in Schladming, Austria, more than six months ago. She’s viewed that wipeout dozens of times, just to figure out what happened (she hit a patch of softer snow, causing her right ski to stop and then buckle as she flipped over her ski tips). “I’ve had crashes that were honestly much worse than this one,” Vonn said. At the time, it looked as if the Sochi Games might be in jeopardy for her. That no longer appears to be the case. She said her knee is feeling so good these days that she no longer needs to ice it after workouts. “It’s about 98 percent equal (to the good knee),” said Vonn, the scar on her knee barely visible. To build up her knee, Vonn has been vigorously working under the supervision of trainer Martin Hager. On Wednesday, in a gym at the base of a ski lift, she warmed up on the treadmill and then went through a series of stretching exercises, most of which designed to increase her balance. “Light workout,” she said, with a laugh.

PORTLAND (AP) — Stacy Lewis is back. Inbee Park is out. The second-ranked Lewis is set to return to play Thursday in the Safeway Classic after withdrawing from the Canadian Women’s Open last week, while the top-ranked Park has pulled out of the event because of flu-like symptoms. “I’ve never withdrawn before. It was physically hard for me to call the official and withdraw. Mentally, I was fried,” said Lewis, who withdrew out after the first round in Edmonton, Alberta. “It was probably the best thing I could have done. People have already said, “Man, you look a lot better.’ I guess I should take that as a compliment.” The Women’s British Open champion was exhausted after a draining and disappointing Solheim Cup in the United States’ blowout loss to Europe. In addition to her major victory Aug. 4 at St. Andrews, the Texan won consecutive early season events in Singapore and Phoenix. Park withdrew Tuesday. The South Korean star swept the first three majors of the year and has six victories this season. She has struggled in her last two events, tying for 42nd in the Women’s British Open and fading over the weekend in Canada en route a tie for 13th. “I’m disappointed I will be unable to play this week in Portland due to an illness,” Park said in a statement. “Safeway is such a great supporter of our tour, and I always look forward to playing in front of the crowds in Oregon.” A 72-hole event for the time, the tournament returns to Columbia Edgewater after four years at Pumpkin Ridge. The purse has been slashed

from $1.5 million last year to $1.3 million. “A proper golf tournament is played at 72 holes,” said Suzann Pettersen, the 2011 champion. Lewis said there’s less margin for error in a 54-hole tournament. “Fifty-four holes feels like such a sprint,” Lewis said. “If you have a bad stretch of holes, you’re pretty much out of it.” Japan’s Mika Miyazato is the defending champion. She said playing at Columbia Edgewater, rather than Pumpkin Ridge, won’t be an issue for her. “I like this golf course. I can play more aggressive,” Miyazato said.

Woods returns to course NORTON, Mass. — The question was inevitable and the answer was predictable. Tiger Woods says his back is fine. Woods played in the proam this morning at the Deutsche Bank Championship and appeared to be swinging freely. The last image of Woods on a golf course looked much worse. Four days ago, he dropped to his knees after a back spasm during the final round of The Barclays, where he finished one shot behind Adam Scott. Woods said after that round it was “hypothetical” whether he would play the Deutsche Bank, adding that he had just walked off the course and wasn’t feeling very good. One of his amateurs asked Woods about his back, and Woods gave a short answer that he was fine. The Deutsche Bank Championship is the second playoff event for the FedEx Cup. Woods remains No. 1 in the standings, narrowly ahead of Scott with Phil Mickelson at No. 3. Those three players will be in the featured group the opening two rounds of the tournament that starts Friday for its traditional Labor Day finish.

Sports ACC can make big statement

Monk, Detmer join college Hall Casper, Shell and Johnson also are among inductees ■

BY RALPH D. RUSSO The Associated Press

OK, ACC, this is your chance. The first month or so of the college football season is as much about how conferences fare against each other as it is about which teams win. The Atlantic Coast Conference, forever trying to shed its reputation as the fifth best of the major football leagues, gets three shots to knock off the neighborhood bully SEC during the opening weekend. Tonight, North Carolina takes on No. 6 South Carolina, one of six Southeastern Conference teams ranked in the Top 12 of the AP preseason poll. Virginia Tech can pull off a huge upset Saturday when it faces No. 1 Alabama in Atlanta. The main event comes Saturday night in Death Valley — the one in South Carolina. No. 8 Clemson plays No. 5 Georgia. It’s the Tigers’ third straight game against the SEC after losing to South Carolina to end last regular season and beating LSU in the Chick-fil-A bowl. “Regardless of what conference they’re from, you’ve got the No. 5 team coming to your stadium,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. “That’s all that really matters.” Well, maybe to you coach. Aside from Clemson, the ACC went 0-5 against the SEC last season. The ACC also gets a crack at Penn State (vs. Syracuse), BYU (at Virginia) and Louisiana Tech (at North

ATLANTA (AP) — Art Monk is best remembered as a star receiver for the Washington Redskins. Monk’s four-year college career, however, is less recognized outside Syracuse, where he serves on the school’s board of trustees. “What I did in college does get overshadowed, so something like this is great,” Monk said. “You get to step back out into the forefront and say, ‘Hey, I wasn’t just a great professional athlete, but I also did some things in college that were worth being recognized.” Monk, Ty Detmer, Dave Casper, Charles Alexander, Art Shell and Jimmy Johnson were among 24 former players and coaches enshrined into the College Football Hall of Fame on Wednesday night. The hall has moved from South Bend, Ind., but the new building in downtown Atlanta is still under construction and scheduled to open in August 2014. Atlanta was hosting its first enshrinement ceremony in a hotel ballroom adjacent to what will be a 94,256square foot museum that organizers believe will host 500,000 visitors each year. Atlanta is home to the Southeastern Conference championship game, the Chick-fil-A Bowl and the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic that this year matches up No. 1 Alabama against Virginia Tech on Saturday. Other hall inductees included Steve Bartkowski, Jonathan Ogden, Phillip Fulmer and R.C. Slocum. Monk was a first-round draft pick for Washington in 1980, helped the Redskins win three Super Bowls and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. For Alexander, getting enshrined in the college hall carried deep meaning. Alexander left LSU in ’78 as the Southeastern Conference’s career leader in rushing yards and touchdowns. He was a first-round draft pick by Cincinnati, helped the Bengals reach a Super Bowl, but was never a serious candidate for induction to the pro hall. The 56-year-old Alexander always longed for the college hall of fame to call, but he wondered if that day would come. “I wasn’t a highly recruited kid coming out of high school,” Alexander said. “I didn’t start in high school until my senior year. I didn’t start at LSU until my junior year, so I just continued to

Bleachers and seats surround the newly renovated Husky Stadium looking east Wednesday in Seattle. The $280 million renovation for the home From Page B1 of Washington football, which opens play there Saturday against Boise State, modernized the aging facility.

Huskies unveiled revamped stadium SEATTLE (AP) — The finest piece of real estate in college football now has a facility worthy of its waterfront location. Husky Stadium is no longer crumbling and dilapidated. Rebar is no longer exposed, concrete is no longer cracked and seats don’t feel miles away from the field. In the span of 21 months, Washington went from having an outdated football stadium to a palatial estate on the shores of Lake Washington. “We can compete with anyone now as far as facilities. I’m very comfortable saying that with this new happening in football and this new facility,” Washington athletic director Scott Woodward said on Wednesday. “This is as good as it gets. It’s efficient, it’s done well, it’s done classy. It’s done in a way that fits who we are as far as the University of Washington and the northwest with our sensibilities, but it’s also really top notch and that is what’s really impressive about this. I’m happy to put it up against anyone’s as far as doing it the right way in my opinion.” Washington will christen its $280 million renovation on Saturday night when the Huskies face No. 19 Boise State. The Huskies have been using the facility for most of their fall camp and moved into their new locker rooms, weight rooms, training center and offices a couple of weeks ago.

But the public has been kept behind chain-link fences with security guards standing watch to turn away anyone trying to slip inside for a sneak peak. The grand unveiling comes on Saturday. “The stadium is awesome. The stadium is great. The new Jumbotron and the lights and the wrapping and everything that is going to be with it,” Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said this week. “What is going to make the place specials is the way we play and the product that we put on the field and our guys understand that.” No one argued against the stadium needing a face-lift. The original lower seating bowl dated to 1920 and despite numerous cosmetic makeovers, was badly in need of repair when the project started in November 2011. Woodward and his staff went through many different scopes and funding mechanisms before deciding they could do the renovation themselves with the debt on the project paid back through stadium revenues. Considering the scope of the project, Washington got a significant bang for its buck with a huge break on timing of taking bids on the project when the economy was down and construction prices low. “I feel incredible about it,” Woodward said, noting original estimates had the project in the $350 million range. “I wouldn’t want to go back

on the street and price this thing today.” The list of what’s brand new is massive. The entire lower bowl and the upper deck on the south side of the stadium was demolished and replaced. The track that surrounded the stadium and kept fans pushed back from the sideline was removed, the field was lowered by four feet and moved north seven feet. The entire west end — the closed end of the horseshoe shape — was brought closer to the field and that’s where Washington’s entire football operations are now housed. From coaches offices at the top, to new locker rooms, weight and therapy rooms and locker rooms underneath, the Huskies are now all encompassed in one location after being spread out across a number of buildings in the past. The school’s sports medicine clinic also relocated within the stadium and that addition will keep from having to send players across the street to the school’s medical center for evaluation of non-trauma injuries. There is also suites and club seating for the first time at Husky Stadium — 27 suites, 65 patio suites and 2,507 club seats. The stadium added permanent seats in the east end zone as well — which sit atop a bank of field level suites that was an added cost to the original project. And stadium capacity will remain above 70,000 — although barely. It was a requirement of the project and came in at 70,138.

The penalty appears to have brought a quick end to an investigation that could have ruined the seventhranked Aggies’ season. The school issued a statement Wednesday saying it declared the Heisman winner ineligible and that the NCAA agreed to reinstate Manziel after he sits out the first half against the underdog Owls. “I am proud of the way both Coach Sumlin and Johnny handled this situation, with integrity and honesty,” Texas A&M Chancellor John Sharp said in the statement. “We all take the Aggie Code of Honor very seriously and there is no evidence that either the university or Johnny violated that code.” According to the statement, Texas A&M and the NCAA “confirmed there is no evidence Manziel received money in exchange for autographs based on currently available information and statements by Manziel.” Conditions for reinstatement include Manziel discussing his actions with teammates and A&M revising how it educates studentathletes about signing autographs. “Student-athletes are often asked for autographs from fans, but unfortunately,

work hard, but I didn’t get here alone. Great coaches at LSU and great teammates and a great offensive line that blocked for me.” Casper, who helped Notre Dame beat Alabama for the 1973 national title, became a pro hall inductee and Super Bowl champion as an Oakland Raiders tight end. He still enjoys his lifelong affiliations with his alma mater. “The good thing is I don’t have to go to purgatory for being on the national championship team,” Casper said, grinning. “Notre Dame takes care of my purgatory problem.” Other offensive players enshrined were Bartkowski (California quarterback who was the No. 1 overall NFL draft pick in 1975 by the Atlanta Falcons), split end Hal Bedsole (helped Southern Cal win the 1962 national title), Rice quarterback Tommy Kramer (set NCAA single-season passing record in 1976) and Colorado guard John Wooten (1958 All-American). Defensive players included Colorado State cornerback Greg Myers (1995 Thorpe Award winner), Texas Tech tackle Gabe Rivera (1982 AllAmerican), Kansas State linebacker Mark Simoneau (1999 Big 12 defensive player of the year) and Air Force safety Scott Thomas. Organizers said that Johnson, Detmer, Ogden, Otis Armstrong and National Football Foundation chairman Archie Manning were unable to attend the event. Johnson coached Miami to the 1987 national title. Detmer, a former BYU quarterback, won the 1990 Heisman Trophy. Ogden won the 1995 Outland Trophy as UCLA’s left tackle. Armstrong left Purdue in 1972 as the Big Ten’s career leading rusher. Manning, a former Mississippi quarterback and father to NFL star QBs Peyton and Eli Manning, is recovering from back surgery. Fulmer (led Tennessee to 1998 national title) and Slocum (Texas A&M’s career-leading winner in now-defunct Southwest Conference) were enshrined as coaches. Shell was one of seven inductees from FBS or lower division schools — Washington University linebacker Shelby Jordan, Westminster (Pa.) quarterback Joe Micchia, Ithaca College fullback Jeff Wittman and coaches Frank Cignetti of West Virginia and Indiana (Pa.), Boots Donnelly of Austin Peay and Middle Tennessee State and Jess Dow of Southern Connecticut State.

some individuals’ sole motivation in seeking an autograph is for resale,” said Kevin Lennon, NCAA vice president of academic and membership affairs. “It is important that schools are cognizant and educate student-athletes about situations in which there is a strong likelihood that the autograph seeker plans to resell the items.” Manziel likely will be replaced for the opening half by either junior Matt Joeckel or freshman Kenny Hill. Joeckel has thrown only 11 passes in his college career. Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman last season, setting numerous school and Southeastern Conference records while leading A&M to an 11-2 mark and a victory over No. 1 Alabama in its first season in the SEC. He followed that with a high-profile offseason of road trips to Las Vegas and the NBA Finals. Manziel got to meet Heat star LeBron James and rapper Drake, and he posted some Tweets that made headlines. His biggest misstep, however, came during the summer when he departed early from a quarterback camp for high school players run by the Manning family in Louisiana. Manziel said it was a mutual decision after he overslept and missed meetings and activities.

BRIDGE Wilson Mizner, a playwright, raconteur and entrepreneur who died in 1933, said, “Not only is a good listener popular everywhere, but after a while he gets to know something.” A good listener at the bridge table is popular with his partner, but less so with his opponents. And he immediately gets to know something. Yesterday, I recommended not being deaf to the auction. This deal is another example. South gets into four spades after East opens three clubs in the third position. West starts off with

three top hearts, East playing high-low to show his doubleton, then discarding the club king (top of touching honors as he cannot win the trick). West shifts to a low club. How should South continue? When entering the auction after an opponent opens with a pre-empt, assume partner has six or seven highcard points. That makes South’s fourspade overcall a slight overbid. If he had settled for three spades, which would have been an underbid, North would probably have raised because he had so many trumps. West thought about sacrificing in five clubs, but was dissuaded by the unfavorable vulnerability. Note that five clubs doubled should go down three, minus 800. South won the fourth trick with his club ace and cashed the spade ace. Now he had to find the diamond queen to make his contract. The bidding gave the answer. West had already shown up with five hearts to the aceking-queen-jack. If he had had the diamond queen as well, he would have opened one heart, not passed, as dealer. South should finesse through East for the diamond queen.
