Lighthouse ownership turns over to tribes Coast Guard hands over 24-acre property ■
BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World
CHARLESTON — Another part of Coos Bay history made its way back to the American Indian tribes around the area on Saturday. The Coast Guard handed over ownership of the Cape Arago lighthouse to the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw 150 years after it was first built. The entire Gregory’s Point Chief’s island and the surrounding 24 acres which encompasses the lighthouse were handed over to the confederated tribes at Saturday’s ceremony. When the papers were finally signed over, the attending crowd let out a cheer. It was a moment that Coast Guard Petty Officer First Class David Mosley won’t soon forget. “I’ve been to a lot of ceremonies being with the Coast Guard. This is a singular event where I’ve never (before) gotten to return property back to the locals,” said Mosley. “It was pretty much an emotional time for them and very much an honor for the Coast Guard members who were at the event.” Built in 1866, the lighthouse had eroded, then was restored in 1934. Over the last 150 years, it has become part of Coos Bay history. Now it is part of lands finally being returned to the tribes. A bill signed in 2008 provided for the tribes to reclaim their 24 SEE LIGHTHOUSE | A8

Robert Silvani embraces Cindy Baley, resident manager at Abundant Living Senior Care Home in Coos Bay. Silvani is on hospice and needs morphine and other pain medicines for his bladder cancer. Silvani has been living at the home for a few days and says he loves Baley who has taken such good care of him.
Big gaps in health care Getting hospice care has become more difficult under the Affordable Care Act. ■
BY EMILY THORNTON The World
COOS BAY – Anyone looking at Robert Silvani wouldn’t imagine that he has less than six months to live. The spry 72-year-old rides a bike, lifts weights and seems to get around just fine. But Silvani is on hospice care and takes handfulls of medication to manage his pain, anxiety and other conditions. He also has
disease, congestive heart failure, Parkinson’s disease, Alzeimer’s disease or senility. It is all part of the Affordable Care Act. Baley said she’s cared for eight hospice recipients in the last three years. She said many of them should have received the care earlier than they did. And others should be allowed on it because of their debilitating condition. It took one patient, Florence Giles, five months to become eligible for hospice care, Baley said. “Normally I can assess them and can get them on in a couple of days,” Baley said. “It was hard. She was suffering so much.”
bladder cancer. Silvani is the only one receiving hospice care at Abundant Living, a foster home for elderly people who have difficulty taking care of themselves. The severity of Silvani’s condition allowed him to get hospice faster than others, said Cindy Baley, resident manager. Her other patients do not qualify for hospice, some because of new guidelines from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid. CMS ruled last year that those patients with only a diagnosis of debility and adult failure to thrive are no longer allowed hospice care. The only diagnosis Medicaid and Medicare will accept for hospice coverage now are cancer, liver failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary

Climber dies on Mt. Hood
BY NIGEL DUARA The Associated Press PORTLAND — A man was buried by an avalanche while climbing Mount Hood on Saturday afternoon, while the six other members of his party escaped without injury. Hood River Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Pete Hughes said the other climbers called in the incident at about 4 p.m. A fixed-wing aircraft was dispatched to survey the area, along with crews from the sheriff’s offices in Hood River and Clackamas counties. “It’s going to take some doing to get folks out there,” Hughes said in a phone interview. Warm conditions will make the ascent to reach the climber more difficult, Hughes said, and difficult terrain will add to the challenge. The climber was buried on the White River Glacier, which begins about 6,000 feet up the south side of the mountain. It’s one of 12 on the mountain and is in Hood River County. Hughes says it’s unclear at what elevation the avalanche buried the climber. Conditions at 5,250 feet up the mountain on Saturday were warm and clear .

The pride of Coos Bay Our view We as a community should be proud to have Marshfield High graduate Mark Helfrich as UO’s head football coach.
What do you think? The World welcomes letters. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maybe we’re not as maniacally devoted to college football as Texas Aggies, but you have to feel just a little pride in knowing the University of Oregon Ducks are now being led by a hometown son. That son is Marshfield High graduate Mark Helfrich, now UO’s head football coach. Helfrich’s is the kind of story we all know — a small-town kid doing all
the things a kid would do growing up around the Bay Area: clamming, fishing, etc. Strong and loving parents guided the youngster as he matured. There were some modest achievements in high school, then off to college. But the football genes couldn’t be denied. Dad Michael was an offensive lineman and a massive man. The son followed him on the gridiron with a successful college career,
guided by an old-school coach who knew how to bring out the best in young men. Later there was more success for Helfrich as assistant coach. These are the kinds of inspirational stories we like to see. Most of us aren’t destined for the NFL, or a career on the silver screen or the corner office of a Fortune 500 company. But hearing stories like that of Helfrich’s life and knowing he’s from our little corner
of the world reminds us just how good our own lives can be if we apply the same work ethic, determination, devotion and passion to whatever pursuit we choose for ourselves. That makes his story more than just a great tale and a source of hometown pride. Helfrich’s story should make us all feel good about our own lives — our accomplishments, our ambitions, our futures. Thanks for that, Mark.
Changing dynamics of Obamacare When Washington conservatives gather to talk among themselves, and the discussion turns to Obamacare — it happens pretty frequently — it’s not unusual to hear predictions that the president’s health care law will “collapse of its own weight.” It’s a “train wreck,” many say, quoting Democratic Sen. Max Baucus. It’s unworkable. It’s going to be a big, smoking ruin. Some predict chaos beginning Oct. 1, when the law requires Obamacare exchanges, the online marketplaces in which people will be able to shop for insurance, to be up and running. And maybe that will happen; the day is a little more than two months off, and the administration seems far behind schedule in the work that needs to be done. On the other hand, a lot of thoughtful conservatives are looking beyond Oct. 1 to Jan. 1, the day the BYRON law (except for the parts YORK the president has unilatColumnist erally postponed) is scheduled to go fully into effect. On that day the government will begin subsidizing health insurance for millions of Americans. (A family of four with income as high as $88,000 will be eligible for subsidies.) When people begin receiving that entitlement, the dynamics of the Obamacare debate will change. At that point, the Republican mantra of total repeal will become obsolete. The administration will mount a huge public relations campaign to highlight individuals who have received government assistance to help them afford, say, chemotherapy, or dialysis, or some other life-saving treatment. Will Republicans advocate cutting off the funds that help pay for such care? The answer is no. Facing that reality, the GOP is likely to change its approach, arguing that those people should be helped while the rest of Obamacare is somehow dismantled. The administration is fully aware of its advantage. Administration officials are quite confident that, whatever problems arise, Obamacare will be solidly in place after the money starts flowing on Jan. 1. “Neither Democrats nor Republicans liked to emphasize how much the Affordable Care Act debate was about redistribution rather than health care as such, but there’s a lot of money here,” wrote Slate’s Matthew Yglesias, who attended the briefing. “The law is structured to be financially beneficial to a large majority of people, and the infrastructure is in place to make that clear to a critical mass of them.” Truth be told, many Republicans did note that redistribution is at the heart of Obamacare. But the fact is, the redistributing will begin Jan. 1. And whatever else goes wrong with Obamacare, look for the White House to apply whatever fixes it must to make sure the money keeps flowing. None of this is to say Obamacare won’t face huge problems. The most obvious is that it will make things worse for more people than it helps. If that disparity is huge — that is, if on one side there are many millions of people paying more for coverage than they did previously, losing coverage they were satisfied with and suffering through great uncertainty, while on the other side there are far fewer people receiving direct government subsidies — if that happens, then the political fight over Obamacare will intensify rather than fade. But even then, the subsidies are unlikely to go away. Obamacare could face even bigger problems. The most serious is the so-called “death spiral,” which could occur if too few young, healthy people sign up for coverage, dramatically raising the cost of covering everyone else. But collapse of its own weight? The administration’s insurance against that is the billions of dollars that will start flowing out of Washington Jan. 1. Once that happens, Republicans will likely stop talking about Obamacare’s collapse and will instead start searching for ways to limit the harm done to millions of Americans. Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.
Public Forum An environment for the wealthy When environmentalists, including the Department of Environmental Quality and Oregon Shores, call for more and more federal repression of the people in order to “save the environment” they actually hurt their own cause. Repression makes the people poorer, which hurts the environment. Throughout the world, it is easy to see that the wealthiest nations have the best cared for environments. The poor nations can’t spare the time or money for preservation as they struggle to stay alive. If the DEQ continues to harm the small business of America with their ridiculous demands,
the environment will suffer as the nation grows poorer. Almost all people are environmentalist at heart. We need only sufficient regulation to assure that the few exceptions are controlled. Liberty, not the DEQ, is the best protection for our nation’s environment. The DEQ has a vested interest in making a job for themselves, even at the expense of the prosperity of the country they are “helping.” It’s time for us to ask ourselves how much “help” this great nation can afford?

Peace can arrive on a lovely breeze While driving home recently from a family reunion at the
annual “pear fair” in Sacramento, Calif., we caught sight of something so beautiful in an otherwise flat, barren and uninteresting landscape. The air was choking with thick, gray particulate from all the fires burning between Oregon and California, but this enormous kinetic sculpture mesmerized us for miles. Yes, it was a massively large windmill that managed to catch any lick of breeze that passed it by. As it turned very slowly I noticed it looks a lot like the middle of a peace sign and I thought, “How appropriate.” If there were never again any wars fought or lives lost over the control of oil, and all the world’s population had all the energy they wanted simply by letting a big beautiful windmill spin, the world would certainly be a

What Obamacare can do to you Dr. Tom Delbanco, a professor of general medicine and primary care at Harvard Medical School, approves of certain sections of Obamacare, but raises a critical matter that has been largely unreported about primary care doctors, whom he describes as “the pediatricians, family doctors and internists who constitute the foundation of our medical system.” He worries that “as the NAT new health care HENTOFF exchanges offer affordable Columnist insurance to more and more Americans, there is risk that a flood of new patients may overwhelm the alreadybesieged primary care workforce.” Since Obamacare’s health care cost-cutting rules do not focus on the differences among individual patients, Dr. Delbanco makes a point that We The People must keep in mind as Obamacare takes over many of our lives: “Numbers such as blood pressures, sugar or lipid levels tell only part of the story for individuals whose genes, cultural habits, psyches and social circumstances vary widely.”
Gathering this information will be a waste of time and costs in the Obamacare system. But as I can demonstrate from my own experience with my longtime primary care physician, his focus on the individuality of his patients keeps strengthening the quality of my life. So I was not surprised to see this report from Tom Howell Jr. in The Washington Times: “The United States needs 16,000 more primary care physicians to meet its current health needs, a problem that will only get worse if nothing is done to accommodate millions of newly insured residents under President Obama’s health care law in the coming decade, according to a Senate report ... “Sen. Bernie Sanders, Vermont Democrat and chairman of the Subcommittee on Primary Health and Aging that released the findings, said one in five sick Americans visits an emergency room for care that should have been rendered by a primary care physician, an unfortunate trend that results in higher health care costs and poorer outcomes for patients” Sanders added that “the lack of primary care offices hits rural regions and low-income urban areas the hardest, and will turn into a crisis if lawmakers and the industry do not address the
problem before the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act expands coverage to 30 million more Americans.” Dig these numbers from a recent health care survey conducted by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions: “Six in 10 physicians say that it is likely that many physicians will retire earlier than planned in the next one to three years. This perception is fairly uniform among all physicians, irrespective of age, gender or medical specialty.” And furthermore: “Nearly three-quarters of physicians (higher among surgical specialists at 81 percent) think the best and brightest (students) may not
consider a career in medicine ... while more than half believe that physicians will retire (62 percent) or scale back practice hours (55 percent) based on how the future of medicine is changing.” That is understandable. In an interview with World Net Daily, “a spokeswoman for the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, Dr. Jane Orient ... told WND that doctors already have started leaving the profession through early retirement. Any of you who voted twice for Obama have any regrets? Nat Hentoff is a member of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, and the Cato Institute, where he is a senior fellow.

Teen OK after Kitzhaber: 2013 is worst baby rattler bite fire season in a decade MEDFORD (AP) — A teen who picked up a snake at Applegate, about 15 miles west of Medford, didn’t know it was a rattler until he saw two puncture marks in his finger. Applegate Fire District Capt. Greg Gilbert told The Mail Tribune it was a baby timber rattler that had not yet grown its rattles. Rescuer took the boy to a Medford hospital for treatment Sunday, and Gilbert said he appeared to be doing well.

Camper falls to death near Sweet Home SWEET HOME (AP) — The Linn County sheriff’s office says a 19-year-old Silverton man fell to his death while camping near Green Peter Reservoir near Sweet Home. Michael David Staab was camping with a woman Friday night and was last seen near the edge of a steep embankment. She went to their vehicle and when she returned, he was gone. She called for help and said he was in the water. Divers found his body early Saturday morning. The Corvallis GazetteTimes reports investigators believe alcohol was a contributing factor in the accident.
Average price of gasoline $3.86 PORTLAND (AP) — The AAA auto club reports the average price of a gallon of gasoline in Oregon is $3.86. That’s down 2 cents in a week, but it’s 11 cents higher than a month ago and 25 cents higher than the national average. Some metro prices from the AAA’s Monday survey: Portland $3.84, Salem $3.85, Eugene-Springfield $3.84, and Medford-Ashland $3.88.
Pendleton police hope to fill slots PENDLETON (AP) — The Pendleton Police Department gladly added two members to its depleted ranks, but expects the annual Round-Up to test already-strained its resources. The East Oregonian reports two new recruits won’t join the department until Aug. 15, and then the department will send them to training for 16 weeks. They will not be on their own until April or May. The department is three officers short of its 23-person allotment.
STATE D I G E S T Former deputy charged with thefts EUGENE (AP) — A former Lane County Sheriff’s Deputy who police see began to use methamphetamine has been charged with a string of burglaries and thefts. Darren Fox, a 44-yearold former deputy and Coburg police officer, faces charges of unauthorized use of a vehicle, unlawful entry into a motor vehicle, first-degree burglary, theft, identity theft and fraudulent use of a credit card. Eugene police connected Fox to a large, white Chevrolet pickup seen in several neighborhoods where burglaries and stolen vehicles had been reported in recent months. Items removed from burgled vehicles were found in Fox’s pickup when he was taken into custody. Fox was convicted last year in Lane County Circuit Court of seconddegree theft and unlawful entry to a motor vehicle. He was arrested on methamphetamine charges earlier this year.
Retired officer finds hand on beach GEARHART (AP) — A retired police officer walking with his 9-year-old granddaughter on a beach near Gearhart found a decomposing hand on Friday near the high tide line. The Oregon State Police say the retired officer, who was not identified, moved the hand away from the water so it wouldn’t wash back out into the ocean and called police. The discovery north of the Del Ray Beach access point will be examined by the Clatsop County Medical Examiner.
Aquarium breaks in shed fire, explosion SANDY (AP) — A fire official says a roaring fire in a shed attached to a Sandy house caused an explosion that fractured a giant saltwater aquarium in the home. While 700 gallons of cascading water put out most of Friday’s fire, the house also suffered extensive water damage. Sandy Fire District Deputy Chief Phil Schneider says arriving fire crews found the shed engulfed in flames. He says the heat exploded a carbon dioxide canister in the shed. That explosion lifted the shed roof and knocked the home’s exterior wall in about 4 inches. He says the fish in the aquarium perished but a 12-year-old boy alone in the home when all this occurred managed to call his mother and escape with the family dogs.
Treated sewage seeping into water BEND (AP) — The urban-like density of rural subdivision lots in La Pine is feeding increasing levels of sewage contaminants into the groundwater. The Bend Bulletin reports a committee commissioned by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality found that 85 percent of the Deschutes County lots and 75 percent of the Klamath County lots are at risk of having groundwater comprised of at least 25 percent of partially treated sewage. The combination of thousands of septic systems close together, permeable soil and a shallow water table led to the sewage contamination of the groundwater. Officials say the situation is not yet a publichealth risk, but the committee has called for further study on the potential impacts to the Little Deschutes River. They say the rural areas require urban sewage solutions.
Patsy Dale Cornelison Dec. 3, 1947 - July 25, 2013
GLENDALE (AP) — Gov. John Kitzhaber predicts hot, dry conditions this year are setting the stage for a long and busy fire season that he says is on track to be Oregon’s worst in more than 10 years. The 2013 season may be matched only by the 2002 Biscuit Fire that scorched a half-million acres and burned until the end of the year, said Kitzhaber, who was also governor during that fire. He said Saturday the lightning-sparked Douglas Complex of wildfires is the “No. 1 (wildfire) concern for the federal government.” “This is one of the worst The Associated Press fire seasons we’ve had in years, probably worse than Susan Jacobs, a photographer for Hellgate Jetboat Excursions in Grants 2002,” Kitzhaber said in a Pass, wears a mask Wednesday, July 31, for protection while she staphone interview from Glen- tions herself on the Caveman bridge while working. dale, outside Oregon’s Smoke from the wildfires the more than 4,000 lightlargest wildfire. “They’re making progress, but think has worsened air quality to ning strikes that hit Central about the magnitude of this unhealthy-to-hazardous and Eastern Oregon on risk, and remember that it’s levels across southwest Ore- Thursday and early Friday. gon and into Northern CaliNearly 4,500 firefighters only (Aug. 3.)” Kitzhaber said the state is fornia for the past week. statewide are battling the seeking assistance from Outdoor activities have been blazes that have charred other states and Canada and canceled and hospitals have more than 40,000 acres of said he will brief the leader- seen an uptick in emergency forestland in the state.

A private family memorial for Patsy Dale Cornelison, 65, of Coos Bay will be held at a later date. Private cremation rites were held at Ocean View Memory Gardens in Coos Bay. Patsy was born Dec. 3, 1947, in Mersed, Calif., to Fred and Dollie Dowell. She passed away July 25, 2013, in Coos Bay. Patsy had a very strong sprit. She loved living in Coos Bay and enjoyed all that the Oregon coast has to offer. She was an avid NASCAR fan who never missed a race. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. Patsy is survived by her husband of 43 years, Ron Cornelison of Coos Bay; daughter, Melissa Cornelison of Salt Lake City, Utah; son, David and wife, Sarah Cornelison of Coos Bay; grandson, Bryson Cornelison of Coos Bay; brothers, Wayne and wife, JoLynn Dowell of Fresno, Calif., and Billy Dowell of Fresno; sister, Joyce and husband, Mark Lenocker of Reedley, Calif.; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Fred and Dollie Dowell. In lieu of flowers the family asks that memorial donations in Patsy’s name may be made to the Humane Society of Oregon, as Patsy was a wonderful animal advocate, at www.oregonhumane.org/donate/make _tribute_gift.asp. Arrangements are under the direction of Coos Bay Chapel, 541-267-3131. Friends and family are encouraged to sign the guestbook at www.cooosbayareafunerals.com and www.theworldlink.com.
Vessel looks for a quake’s heart ASTORIA (AP) — Astoria has a growing reputation as a stopover point for cruise ships, the iconic behemoths that periodically dwarf the Port of Astoria’s offices as their passengers swarm downtown. Less noticeable are the research vessels and their academic passengers that periodically berth along Pier 1, gracing Astoria with some of the most advanced equipment and knowledgeable academics in the world. One of those vessels, the research vessel Atlantis operated by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, departed Astoria this week for a monthlong cruise carrying mostly researchers from the University of Wash-
ington and three from Oregon State University. They are running heat and fluid movement profiles 50 to 100 miles off the Washington coast, indirectly seeking an answer to one of the region’s most burning questions: Where could the next Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake start? Off the Pacific Northwest coastline between British Columbia and Northern California, the North American plate subducts the Juan De Fuca plate — an area commonly known as the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

Klamath task force falls short of agreement KLAMATH FALLS (AP) — Amid drought and major fires, a task force trying to pick its way through the Klamath Basin’s long water struggles has met again, with some contention and no resolution. The task force was put together after U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon said local agreements reached after an irrigation shut-off in 2001 were too expensive to get through Congress. The group includes representatives from the parties with an interest in the basin’s water: farmers, ranchers, conservationists, tribal members, government agencies and power utilities. They have two more meetings before a September deadline to make recommendations to Wyden, and the Klamath Falls Herald and News reported a con-
tentiousness tone at Thursday’s session. Richard Whitman, natural resources adviser to Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber, fielded questions about the agreement over water, fish and farming reached as a result of an irrigation water shut-off in 2001. After John Menke of Scott Valley, Calif., called the agreement the “greatest ripoff to taxpayers ever designed,” tribal members defended their river ceremonies and the importance of restoring salmon habitat on the Klamath River, pointing to the Klamath Reclamation Project that straddles the Oregon-California border. “The river is degraded because of a federal water project a hundred and some miles upriver,” said Mike Orcutt, director of the
Hoopa Valley tribe’s fisheries department. Drought this year has again led to an irrigation water shut-off, and a rancher whose irrigation water ended in June pleaded for conciliation. “Let’s not meet this way for the next 15 years,” said Becky Hyde, a representative for the Upper Klamath Water Users Association. “We can continue to eat each other alive, or we can choose something different. Let’s choose something different.” Whitman said the task force has tough going but expressed hope it would reach solutions. “We’re facing the worst

fire year in 25 years and the worst water year in probably 25 years, putting enormous pressure on all of us,” he said. The agreements include one that would remove four hydroelectric dams on the Klamath. They also would help the Klamath Tribes acquire the 92,000-acre Mazama Tree Farm. Wyden said at a hearing in June that a price tag once set at $1 billion and then lowered to $800 million to finance the agreements, including habitat restoration, was too high. He said cutting $250 million from it was a good start and suggested shedding a quarter to a third more.

A letter from 13-year-old Abby Dear Mrs. Mary Hunt: My name is Abby. I am 13 years old. So, my mom got yo u r b o o k , “ R a i s i n g Financially Confident K i d s .” She is EVERYDAY o n CHEAPSKATE Chapter 9, a n d s h e wants to do that — g ive y o u r k i d s money a n d m a k e Mary t h e m Hunt b u y t h e i r clothes, shoes, etc., each month. Well, I didn’t really like the idea. I actually thought it was stupid. But I didn’t say anything. So later on my mom went to bed, so I picked up the book and read it. Then I knew that it wasn’t stupid. It was about teaching your kids how to handle money. I don’t know how this will work. But I can at least try. My mom thinks you read her mind. Ha! Ha! Ha! I don’t know if you have eve r h a d a k i d my a ge write to you, but you have inspired me and my family. Thank ya! D e a r A b b y : I’m happy your mom is reading my book about how to raise financially confident kids. Abby, I’ll bet you’re a great swimmer. How did you learn to do that? Did your mom sit you in a c h a i r a n d te l l yo u a l l a b o u t w a te r a n d h o w, when you swim, you have to hold your breath and kick your feet? Did she say that when you grow up you can go into a pool, but until then you just ca n n o t b e t r u s te d i n water? I think I can hear you laughing because that is quite silly. But that’s the way a lot of parents teach their kids about money. They just talk about it and describe what it will be like someday when they grow up and leave home. They hope their kids will figure out how to be good with money when they become adults. And that doesn’t always work out so well. The plan you and your mom are reading about in my book is a way to teach k i d s h ow to m a n a ge money while they are young and their parents a re s t i l l r i g h t t h e re to guide them. Your mom will teach you how it all works. She is going to give you something that all kids want from their parents: trust. She is going to trust you with money and allow you to make decisions with it. T h e re a re r u l e s yo u have to follow. And you will be getting a Responsibility List. If you want things on that list, then you will have to pay for them. And if you make foolish choices in the way you spend your money, you will have to live with the consequences. That’s the way real life works, Abby. T h e m o re yo u r m o m sees that she can trust you to make good decisions about saving and giving to others and exercising self-discipline with the way that you spend money, the more money she will trust you to manage. I can’t wait to hear how t h i s i s go i n g fo r yo u , Abby. You can write to me a n y t i m e . I wo u l d l ove that!

Nation and World 162,000 new jobs are disproportionately low-pay or part-time WASHINGTON (AP) — The 162,000 jobs the economy added in July were a disappointment. The quality of the jobs was even worse. A disproportionate number of the added jobs were part-time or low-paying — or both. Part-time work accounted for more than 65 percent of the positions employers added in July. Low-paying retailers, restaurants and bars supplied more than half July’s job gain. “You’re getting jobs added, but they might not be the best-quality job,” says John Canally, an economist with LPL Financial in Boston. So far this year, low-paying industries have provided 61 percent of the nation’s job growth, even though these industries represent just 39 percent of overall U.S. jobs, according to Labor Department numbers analyzed by Moody’s Analytics. Midpaying industries have contributed just 22 percent of this year’s job gain. “The jobs that are being created are not generating much income,” Steven Ricchiuto, chief economist at Mizuho Securities USA, wrote in a note to clients. That’s one reason Americans’ pay hasn’t kept up with even historically low inflation since the Great Recession ended in June 2009. Average hourly pay fell 2 cents in July to $23.98 an hour. Among those feeling the squeeze is Elizabeth Wilkinson, 28, of Houston. After losing a $39,000-a-year administrative job at Rice University in January, Wilkinson found work at an employment agency for $15 an hour. Yet she’s had to supplement that job with part-
time work as a waitress. “This morning I put $1.35 worth of gas in my car because that is all the money that I had,” Wilkinson said via email. “It’s very difficult to survive on $30,000 (a year), and I am living paycheck to paycheck.” Part-time work has made up 77 percent of the job growth so far this year. The government defines parttime work as being less than 35 hours a week. Weak economies overseas have reduced demand for U.S. goods and, as a result, for better-paying U.S. jobs in manufacturing. Government spending cuts have taken a toll on some middle-class jobs, too. Many employers have also discovered that they can use technology to do tasks more cheaply and efficiently than office workers used to do. And some have found that they can shift middle-class jobs to low-wage countries such as China. By contrast, most lowerpaying jobs — from waiters and hotel maids to store clerks, bartenders and home health care aides — can’t be automated or shipped abroad. “You’re always going to have jobs in the retail sector,” says Michael Evangelist, a policy analyst with the liberal National Employment Law Project, which advocates on behalf of low-wage workers. Consider Mike Ulrich, 30, who earned a master’s degree in public administration in May from the University of Colorado. Ulrich hasn’t been able to find work that requires a college degree. Instead, he works at a hardware store in Spokane, Wash., earning the state’s minimum wage: $9.19 an hour.

State Dept: Posts in 19 cities to remain closed WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. diplomatic posts in 19 cities in the Mideast and Africa will remain closed for the rest of the week amid intercepted “chatter” about terror threats, which lawmakers briefed on the information likened to intelligence picked up before the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. One lawmaker said the chatter was specific as to certain dates and the scope of the operation; others said it suggested that a major terrorist attack, akin to 9/11, was being planned by the alQaida affiliate in Yemen. Diplomatic facilities will remain closed in Egypt,Jordan, Libya, Yemen, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, among other countries, through Saturday, Aug. 10.

Calif. Gov. Brown orders inquiry, averts S.F. rail strike SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Hundreds of thousands of San Francisco Bay area commuters got at least a temporary reprieve from a massive transit strike when Gov. Jerry Brown intervened in a labor contract dispute. Sunday night’s eleventh hour order averted the walkout and left the morning commute to proceed normally, without the widespread travel congestion that a strike involving Bay Area Rapid Transit, the nation’s fifth largest rail line, would have created. In the order, Brown named a board of investigators for a seven-day inquiry into the contract dispute that had labor unions poised to walk off the job at midnight Sunday. The order Brown issued came under a law that allows the state’s intervention if a strike will significantly disrupt public transportation services and endanger public health. “For the sake of the people of the Bay Area, I urge — in the strongest terms possible — the parties to meet quickly and as long as necessary to get this dispute resolved,” Brown said in the order. The board will report its findings to the governor, who can then petition a court to call a 60-day cooling-off period, said Evan Westrup, a spokesman for Brown. The report will explain BART and the unions’ positions, but will not find fault or issue a recommendation. In a statement, BART spokesman Rick Rice said the transit authority’s board president Tom Radulovich sent a letter to the governor requesting his intervention and a cooling off period of 60 days. The governor issued an order with considerably less time of a week. Union leaders issued a critical statement after the order, accusing BART management negotiators of stalling until only hours remained before the strike would have begun to provide counter proposals on core pay and benefits.
Madagascar, Burundi, Rwanda and Mauritius. The U.S. reopened some posts Monday, including those in Kabul, Afghanistan and Baghdad. Last week the State Department announced a global travel alert, warning that al-Qaida or its allies might target either U.S. government or private American interests. It said Americans should take extra precautions overseas and cited potential dangers involved with public transportation systems and other prime sites for tourists. Spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the decision to keep certain embassies and consulates shuttered throughout the week was done out of an “abundance of caution” and to “protect our employees, including local employees, and visitors to our facilities.” The intercepted intelligence
foreshadowing an attack on U.S. or Western interests is evidence of one of the gravest threats to the United States in years, said several lawmakers who made the rounds on the Sunday talk shows. Sen. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the conversation was “very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11.” Chambliss, the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said it was that chatter that prompted the Obama administration to order the closures and issue the travel warning. Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee,told ABC’s “This Week” that the threat intercepted from “high-level people in al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula” was about a “major attack.”
CAIRO (AP) — A top U.S. diplomat held talks with a jailed senior leader of the Muslim Brotherhood on Monday as part of mediation efforts to end the standoff between Egypt’s military-backed government and protesters supporting ousted President Mohammed Morsi, Egyptian officials said. The talks between U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns and Khairat el-Shater, the powerful deputy head of the Brotherhood, took place in the prison were the Islamist figure is being held, the officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media. Burns was accompanied by the foreign ministers of Qatar and the United Arab Emirates as well as an EU envoy. U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Patricia Kabra declined comment, but a spokesman for interim Egyptian President Adly Mansour confirmed the meeting. El-Shater was among a host of prominent Islamists arrested by authorities after the army ousted Morsi, a longtime Brotherhood member, on July 3. He has been charged with complicity in the killing of anti-Morsi protesters during the four days of protests that led up to the military coup. Burns and the three other diplomats are in Egypt as part of international efforts to end a standoff between Morsi’s supporters and the military-backed interim government. Also Monday, senior U.S. senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham arrived in Cairo at President Barack Obama’s request to press for a quick return to civilian rule.

House GOP will campaign against Washington in August WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans will take a carefully orchestrated, staunchly anti-Washington campaign to voters this month, blaming President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats for Americans’ unhappiness with government. “Every day I serve in Congress, I work to fight Washington,” says a suggested oped in a richly detailed “planning kit” distributed to all 234 House Republicans ahead of the August recess. Running against Washington is an old strategy. Ronald Reagan summarized it only minutes after being sworn in as president in January 1981. “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem,” he told the country. “Government is the problem.”
WORLD D I G E S T minimum hourly wage from $7.25 to $15. These one-day protests, which also took place in St. Louis, Milwaukee and Flint, Mich., come amid calls from the White House, some members of Congress and economists to raise the federal minimum wage, which was last increased in 2009. Most of the proposals, though, seek a more modest rise than those urged by fast-food workers. President Barack Obama wants to boost the hourly wage to $9. And in July, more than 100 economists signed a petition supporting a bill sponsored by a Florida congressman that would hike it to $10.50 an hour.

Will fast-food protests hike minimum wage? Deaths from floods up Terrance Wise has two to 53 in Pakistan jobs in Kansas City — one at a burger joint, a second at a pizza restaurant — but he says his paychecks aren’t enough to buy shoes for his three daughters and insure his 15-year-old car. So he decided to draw attention to his plight: He walked off work in protest. Wise was among a few thousand fast-food workers in seven cities, including New York,Chicago and Detroit,who took to the streets last week, carrying “Strike” and “Supersize Our Wages” signs in front of McDonalds, Wendy’s, Burger King and other restaurants. They demanded better pay, the right to unionize and a more than doubling of the federal
ISLAMABAD (AP) — Heavy rains that caused flash floods and collapsed houses in different parts of Pakistan have killed 53 people over the past three days, a Pakistani official said Monday. Civil and military authorities have launched rescue and relief efforts to deal with the crisis, said Brig. Kamran Zia, a senior member of the National Disaster Management Authority. He said the deaths from the flooding span the entire country. In neighboring Afghanistan, the same storm system hit in the eastern part of the country, leveling homes and killing at least 69 people in five provinces since Saturday.

Coast Guard Capt. Mark Reynolds, commander, Sector North Bend, signs a copy of Public Law 110-364, Oregon Surplus Federal Land Act of 2008, completing the land transfer of the Cape Arago Lighthouse to the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians at a ceremony held on the lighthouse grounds southwest of Coos Bay on Saturday.
LIGHTHOUSE Continued from Page A1 acres of land within the next five years. Over the last half decade, a healthy amount of hard work and preparation went toward making sure the property was acceptable to both sides, making the transition as smooth as possible.
“It very much felt like the right thing to do,” said Mosley. “It was something they were extremely grateful to have back.” Although the lighthouse doesn’t offer much of a practical use anymore to the Coast Guard because of new high tech GPS, Lt. Junior Grade Kevin Shanahan knew
the looks on the faces of tribal members in attendance Saturday made the five years of renovating worthwhile. “The cheer and he smiles on their faces,” Shanahan said. “They were definitely excited about it and that makes our job more exciting to see we can help them out with that.”
Driver accelerated into LA boardwalk crowd LOS ANGELES (AP) — The driver parked outside a hotel and surveyed the leisurely summer scene at the Venice Beach boardwalk: Hundreds of people were sitting at cafes, walking along the seashore or shopping at vendors selling jewelry or art. Then, according to surveillance video, the man got into a large black car, steered around a vehicle barrier and accelerated mercilessly through the crowd, hitting one person after another as bystanders tried desperately to get out of the way. Saturday’s hit-and-run killed an Italian woman on her honeymoon and hurt 11 others who only a moment earlier had been enjoying an afternoon near the beach at the height of vacation season.
A couple of hours later, authorities arrested a man on suspicion of murder after he walked into a police station in neighboring Santa Monica and said he was involved. Nathan Louis Campbell, 38, of Los Angeles, remained jailed Sunday on $1 million bail. Police declined to discuss a motive but Deputy Chief Kirk Albanese said there was no indication that the attack was a terrorist act or that anyone else was involved. By the time it was over, the driver had covered about a quarter of a mile along the boardwalk before fleeing. The entire incident was over in minutes.

Although now he’s battling an aggressive cancer, Silvani once dealt with a rough childhood in Detroit. He decided he wanted to get away from it and joined the Navy for four years. Then, he returned to Detroit and became a firefighter. He says he “held every union card without having an apprenticeship. (I) knew people and would climb 200 feet in the air when other people wouldn’t.” For the past 40-some years, he has painted murals and signs. “I did whatever I wanted, wherever I wanted,” Silvani said. His wanderlust took him all over the country, including Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Michigan, Florida and Indiana. He says he met a 10-yearold Madonna in Detroit. He even played a small role in the film, “Lepke,” a 1975 film about gangster Louis “Lepke” Buchalter, when he was in Hollywood. He said he would’ve done more films, but his teeth were bad. Silvani said he came back to the Oregon coast because of the weather. He was living in Arizona and said he didn’t like the heat. “Every time I came to Coos Bay it was sunny, but not too hot,” he said. He was also appreciative of the hospice care he received in Oregon. “They saved my life,” he

Kahne wins with late pass LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — Jeff Gordon had the inside line, a lead and his first win of the season in sight, usually a sure thing for Pocono’s top winner. Kasey Kahne was about out of time to pass his Hendrick Motorsports teammate. “It was either to go for it and make it work,” Kahne said. “Or not.” Cruising from the outside, Kahne got the jump he needed, zipped past Gordon and pulled away with two laps left Sunday to win at Pocono Raceway. “I about gave it away when Jeff got by me,” Kahne said. Kahne recovered in the No. 5 Chevrolet for his second victory of the season, all but securing his spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. He had the car to beat for the final half of the 400-mile race until a late caution bunched up the field. Gordon nudged past Kahne after some thrilling two-wide racing and seemed poised to win at Pocono for the seventh time. After the final caution, Kahne was simply too fast, too strong to be denied his first win at Pocono since 2008. So close to the checkered, this loss stung Gordon. Even worse, his runner-up finish came on his 42nd birthday in his 42nd career Pocono start. “I thought all I needed to do was get in here and got to the bottom and I’d be good,” Gordon said. “He got a killer run and blasted by on the outside of me. Caught me by surprise. It just kills your momentum.” Kurt Busch, who also celebrated a birthday, Ryan Newman and Dale Earnhardt Jr. rounded out the top five. The top five cars were Chevrolets. Busch helped out Kahne with one final push down the frontstretch to find some needed speed. “That was kind of the race at that point,” Kahne said. “Once I cleared (Gordon) getting into two, from there it was just, don’t make a mistake and try to run the quick lap on the last one.” Kahne, Gordon and Earnhardt made it an outstanding race for Hendrick. Teammate and series points leader Jimmie Johnson was 13th after a blown tire knocked him out of the lead. Kahne had stretched his lead to almost 8 seconds when a caution for debris came out with 12 laps left. Gordon, who won at Pocono each of the last two years, was strong in the No. 24 and had the lead as he tried to extend his record for career wins at Pocono. Matt Kenseth spun with four laps left to erase Gordon’s lead and set up the thrilling finish. Gordon led again until Kahne ran him down with a hard, sweeping run past his teammate for the win. “We had them. We certainly had the position,” Gordon said. “I’m pretty disappointed I let him get inside of me on (turn) one.” Kahne also won this season at Bristol. He jumped a spot to eighth in the points standings and need a win to make sure he’d at least qualify for a wild-card spot should he fall below 10th place. Kahne was third last week at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and seems to be heating up with five races left until the Chase field is set. With two wins, he’d also be closer to Johnson and Kenseth once the points are reset when Chase field is set. Kahne’s 16th career win should make him a Chase lock. “The Chase is what it’s all about in NASCAR,” Kahne said. “You need to make it.” Gordon, who has six Pocono wins, finished second last week and has three straight top 10s to also position himself for a spot in the 12-driver field. He had won at Pocono each of the last two seasons. When Gordon leads late at Pocono, he usually wins. Just not this time. SEE NASCAR | B2

Engle is fastest in race around bay BY THOMAS MORIARTY The World
NORTH BEND — A veteran marathon runner and a third-time local champion claimed the top individual slots Saturday in the 40th annual Circle the Bay road run. Chuck “Marathon Junkie” Engle of North Bend took first among 52 individual competitors with a time of 1 hour, 55 minutes and 51 seconds in the 30-kilometer race. Sera Mathewes of Gold Hill was the top woman for the third straight year, finishing in 2:11:51. Mathewes finished second overall for the individuals. In addition to Engle, she finished behind two of the 33 three-person relay teams. Engle, a nationally-competitive marathon runner who currently holds the record for most marathon victories, said the 30kilometer (18.6-mile) race posed a different set of challenges than those he normally faces. The race wasn’t only his first time at Circle the Bay — it was his first 30K. “I wanted to burn everything I had,” Engle said. “That last 10K really chewed me up.” Mathewes, who won top female individual honors in the 2012 race at 2:17:38, said she was-

Coquille High School senior Thom Hallmark was second among men, and third overall, in 2:21:05, followed by former North Bend runner Dion MacDonald (2:23:10). Former North Bend runner Kassy Lynass was second among women in 2:25:46, followed by Kat Henning of North Bend (2:27:16) and the first masters (40-andover) female finisher Karen Matson of Coos Bay (2:40:57). Engle was the first masters finisher for the men. The top 10 men, women and relay teams are listed in today’s Scoreboard section on Page B3. Complete results will be listed in the Community Sports section in Saturday’s edition of The World.

South Coast places third at Babe Ruth regional THE WORLD The South Coast All-Stars ended up finishing third at the Pacific Northwest Babe Ruth 13-15 regional tournament in Centralia, Wash., over the weekend. South Coast lost in the semifinals 7-1 to tournament host Twin Cities on Saturday. South Coast edged Grays Harbor, another Washington team, for third place based on the tiebreaker rule of giving up the fewest runs in the tournament. Grays Harbor fell 11-0 to Columbia Basin in the other semifinal Saturday. Twin Cities blanked Columbia Basin 10-0 in the championship game Sunday. “We ended up taking third place overall out of 10 teams,” South Coast manager Rob Laskey said. “Third place isn’t bad. The kids were pretty happy with it.” South Coast finished the regional tournament with a 3-2 record. But in the semifinals against Twin Cities, the squad couldn’t come up with offense. “We didn’t hit the ball,” Laskey said. “We played good defense. They’re a good team. We just didn’t do our part. It’s one of those things.” South Coast scored its run in the seventh inning. J.J. Hubbard drew a walk and was replaced on first base by pinch runner Jared Hampel. Hampel stole second and came home on a single to right by Garrett McCoy. South Coast managed just five hits, including doubles by Ricky Jones and Andrew Sharp. The game was close until the sixth inning, when Twin Cities scored four runs. Until that point, South Coast starter Cory Chatelle had

South Coast had another solid defensive game. One run scored on a passed ball. The only other defensive miscue was a misplayed bunt, Laskey said. “We had probably the second best defense in the tournament,” he said. South Coast suffered its only other loss against Grays Harbor in the late game Friday night, which might have impacted Saturday’s game because of when it was played, Laskey said.
“The Friday night game took the life out of both teams,” he said. “I really thought that us and Grays Harbor were the better teams. “There was not much spark. The kids were really nervous. That’s as far as they’ve gone (in regionals) and they were really rattled.” As third place finisher, South Coast earned a regional plaque.

A dozen players accept suspensions in Biogenesis investigation NEW YORK (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press that all players targeted for drug suspensions other than Alex Rodriguez have accepted 50-game penalties from Major League Baseball. The person spoke on condition of anonymity this morning because the suspensions had not yet been announced. The person said All-Stars Nelson Cruz of Texas, Jhonny Peralta of Detroit and Everth
Cabrera of San Diego are among the 12 who accepted penalties today. Others include Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and outfielder Fernando Martinez; Philadelphia pitcher Antonio Bastardo; Seattle catcher Jesus Montero; New York Mets infielder Jordany Valdespin and outfielder Cesar Puello; Houston pitcher Sergio Escalona; San Diego pitcher Fautino De Los Santos; and free agent pitcher Jordan Norberto.
MLB informed the Yankees on Sunday that Rodriguez will be suspended for his links to the Biogenesis of America clinic, which was accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs, a person familiar with that decision said. That person also spoke on condition of anonymity because no statement was authorized. The Yankees weren’t told the exact length of the suspension, though they were
under the impression it will be through the 2014 season, the person said. Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun accepted a 65-game suspension two weeks ago, bringing to 14 the number of players — including Rodriguez — facing discipline in the probe, which was sparked when the Miami New Times published documents obtained from former Biogenesis associate Porter Fisher that linked several players to the clinic.

Sports Manziel may have broken NCAA rules THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BRISTOL, Conn. — ESPN says the NCAA is investigating whether Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was paid for signing hundreds of autographs in January. Citing unidentified sources, ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” said the Heisman Trophy winner signed items in exchange for a fivefigure fee during his trip to Miami for the BCS championship game. ESPN said sources told “Outside the Lines” that Manziel signed photographs, footballs, mini football helmets and other items at the request of autograph broker Drew Tieman. ESPN reported that a source said James Garland, the NCAA’s assistant director of enforcement, contacted Tieman and at least one person associated with the signings in June. “We cannot comment on current, pending or potential investigations,” NCAA spokeswoman Emily Potter told the AP in an email statement Sunday night. Texas A&M also declined to comment.
GOLF Woods dominates for eighth win in Bridgestone AKRON, Ohio — Tiger Woods played safe and smart with a big lead, parring 16 holes in an even-par 70 to coast to a seven-shot victory at the Bridgestone Invitational for his eighth win at the event — matching the PGA Tour record he shares for victories in a single tournament. After a second-round 61 in which he flirted with 59, Woods ended up at 15-under 265 to easily beat defending champ Keegan Bradley and Henrik Stenson. Woods’ mastery at Firestone allowed him to again match Sam Snead’s PGA Tour record for wins in an event. Snead won the Greater Greensboro Open eight times. Earlier this year, Woods won at Bay Hill for the eighth time. Woods won for the fifth time this year to push his PGA Tour total to 79, three short of Snead’s record.
Lewis finishes strong to win Women’s British Open ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — Stacy Lewis finished a marathon Sunday with exquisite birdies on the last two holes of the Old Course to close with an even-par 72 and win the Women’s British Open by two shots. On the par-4 17th, the famous Road Hole, Lewis drilled a 5-iron that tumbled onto the green and settled 3 feet below the cup for a birdie to reach 7 under and give her a share of the lead when Na Yeon Choi three-putted the 14th hole from about 80 feet. Lewis then made a 25-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to finish at 8-under 280. Inbee Park’s bid to become the first pro golfer to win four straight majors in one season ended early — very early. Park closed with rounds of 74-78 to finish 14 shots behind.
of his four birdies and got upand-down to save par five times to win the Reno-Tahoe Open for second PGA Tour victory. Woodland had 44 points in the modified Stableford format that awards eight points for double eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie, zero for par, minus-one for bogey and minus-three for double bogey or worse. Jonathan Byrd and Andres Romero tied for second with 35 points, and Brendon Steele had 33 at Montreux Golf Club on the edge of the Sierra.
Pernice edges Sluman and Pavin for victory BLAINE, Minn. — Tom Pernice Jr. birdied the final two holes for a one-stroke victory over Jeff Sluman and Corey Pavin in the 3M Championship.

NFL Football Hall of Fame member Donovan dies BALTIMORE — Art Donovan, the lineman whose hilarious stories about his football career enabled him to maintain his popularity long after his election into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, died Sunday night. He was 89. Donovan made a name for himself as a feisty defensive tackle for the Baltimore Colts, helping the team to world championships in 1958 and 1959. He also spent single seasons with the New York Yanks and Dallas Texans in a career that lasted from 1950 through 1961.
SOCCER Timbers, Whitecaps battle to 1-1 draw PORTLAND — Jordan Harvey scored the equalizer in the 68th minute and the Vancouver Whitecaps played to a 1-1 draw with the Portland T imbers in a Cascadia Cup rivalry match on Saturday night. The result pulls the Whitecaps ahead in the three-way Pacific Northwest rivalry series with the Timbers and the Seattle Sounders. After a scoreless first half, Ryan Johnson put the Timbers in front with a header into the net in the 48th minute. The Cascadia Cup — at least the trophy itself — was introduced in 2004 when all three teams were part of the United Soccer Leagues First Division.

Hall of Fame inductees, from left, Larry Allen, Cris Carter, Dave Robinson, Jonathan Ogden, Bill Parcells, Curley Culp and Warren Sapp pose with their bronze busts during the 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday.
Hall induction draws record crowd CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Forcefully and emotionally, Cris Carter summed up the 50th induction ceremony for the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night. The seventh and final inductee from the Class of 2013, Carter honored dozens of people in his life who were “going into the Hall of Fame with me tonight,” as he followed Jonathan Ogden, Dave Robinson, Larry Allen, Bill Parcells, Curley Culp and Warren Sapp in being inducted. More than 120 hall members, a record, and a crowd of 11,500 was on hand at Fawcett Stadium for the golden anniversary celebration of the shrine. “I appreciate the process you have to go through to get to be a Hall of Famer,” Carter said. “To be able to join these men on this stage in football heaven is the greatest day of my life.” Carter needed six tries to make the hall even though he retired as the No. 2 career receiver behind Jerry Rice. He choked back tears as he made his speech after being presented by his son, Duron, and he spoke of his problems with alcohol while playing three years for the Eagles before being released. He hooked on immediately with the Vikings and hooked onto nearly everything throw his way: Carter finished his 16-season career with 1,101 catches for 13,899 yards and 130 touchdowns. “This game gave me identity, gave me a sense of purpose,” he said. Parcells also seemingly spoke for everyone in the Hall of Fame, and all the people gathered Saturday night. “There’s a kinship created that lasts for the rest of your life,” he said about his experience as one of the NFL’s most successful coaches. The master of the franchise turnaround as the only coach to take four teams to the playoffs, Parcells won Super Bowls with the New York Giants in the 1986 and 1990 seasons. “Every organization I worked for supported me to the fullest,” Parcells said. “Without that, you’ve got no shot.” Parcells was Coach of the Year honors in 1986 and 1994. He asked to have his bust placed somewhere near Lawrence Taylor in the hall “so I can keep an eye on that sucker.”
As relaxed as if he had no one to block, Ogden became the first Baltimore Raven enshrined. The first player drafted by the Ravens after the franchise moved from Cleveland in 1996 and was renamed, Ogden was presented by the man who made that selection, fellow Hall of Famer Ozzie Newsome, now Baltimore’s general manager. A former college shot putter at UCLA, the 6-foot-9, 345-pound Ogden starred at tackle for a dozen seasons in Baltimore, winning the 2000 NFL championship.
“I just knew I had to win every play. That’s the reason I am here.” Larry Allen Hall of Fame inductee
“He is part of the foundation of this franchise, part of the reason we have two Super Bowl championships,” Newsome said. Ogden, who was given a 2013 Super Bowl ring by the team, made the hall in his first year of eligibility. He was a sixtime All-Pro, made the Pro Bowl 11 times and was the main blocker when Jamal Lewis rushed for 2,066 yards in 2003. “Talent isn’t enough,” Ogden said. “A lot of people have talent, they don’t always live up to it. For me it is about maximizing, striving for perfection.” Allen, who sniffled his way through his speech, was just as dominating a blocker as Ogden. He also was the NFL’s strongest man, once bench-pressing 700 pounds, saying “I did it naturally.” A lead blocker for Dallas as Emmitt Smith became the NFL’s career rushing leader, Allen made six All-Pro squads and 11 Pro Bowls in his 14 seasons, the final two with San Francisco. He won the Super Bowl in the 1995 season and was voted into the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility, “I just knew I had to win every play,” he said. “That’s the reason I am here. I
knew if I lost a play, I had 45 seconds to get even.” Sapp became only the second Tampa Bay Buccaneer enshrined, 18 years after Lee Roy Selmon made it. He was elected in his first year of eligibility following 13 seasons in which he went from instant starter after being selected 12th overall in the 1995 draft to Defensive Player of the Year in 1999. That season, he had 12 1 ⁄2 sacks as the Bucs won their first division title in 18 years. For his career, Sapp 1 had 96 ⁄2 sacks, extremely high for a defensive tackle. “I sit here with the greatest among the great,” Sapp said, breaking into tears. “We’re here, baby.” Presented Saturday night by his 15year-old daughter, Mercedes, Sapp made the NFL’s All-Decade squads for the 1990s and the 2000s. Sapp, who both Ogden and Allen said was as tough to handle as any player they faced, paid tribute to his roots in Plymouth, Fla. “That dirt road was something rough,” he said. “We sure turned it into something special.” Robinson became the 12th inductee from the vintage Packers coached by Vince Lombardi to be enshrined. Robinson was a prototype outside linebacker who could rush the quarterback, cover tight ends or running backs on pass plays, and stop the run. He made the NFL’s All-Decade team of the 1960s and won three NFL titles, including the first two Super Bowls. “This is the biggest day of the 21st century for the Robinson family,” he said, adding that he “lives 25 miles from here but it took me 38 years to get here. “Now, I am immortalized.” As is Culp, one of the game’s most dominant defensive tackles for much of his 14 pro seasons, including the 1969 season when he helped Kansas City win the NFL title. A five-time Pro Bowler, Culp also played for Houston and Detroit, retiring in 1981, then waiting more than three decades to be enshrined Saturday as a senior nominee. “It gives me joy and inspiration that will last the rest of my life,” Culp said.“I am just overwhelmed by the struggles, joys and tears of those who made it here. I’m happy to join them in the Hall of Fame.”
Cowboys open preseason with victory CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Rookie Devonte Holloman’s 75-yard interception return with a tipped pass keyed the Dallas Cowboys’ 24-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins in the Hall of Fame game Sunday night that opened the NFL’s preseason. The sixth-round pick from South Carolina was perfectly situated when rookie Chad Bumphis had Matt Moore’s pass go off his hands in the second quarter. It was the biggest play for a Dallas defense switching to a 4-3 alignment under new coordinator Monte Kiffin. But the Cowboys controlled most of the game one night after their former offensive lineman, Larry Allen, and former coach, Bill Parcells, were inducted into the hall. Quarterback Tony Romo, coming off back surgery to remove a cyst, sat out for Dallas. So the Cowboys turned to their ground game — and ground down Miami as few regulars got onto the field. Linebacker Hollomon sped toward the end zone with a group of blockers escorting him, and after he scored he tightly clutched the ball as he headed to the Dallas sideline. Bumphis otherwise had a strong game with five receptions for 85 yards. But Miami’s mistakes were decisive. They struggled most of the night against Dallas’ new defense masterminded by K iffin, the man who designed the Tampa 2 scheme so prevalent throughout the NFL. Although top running back DeMarco Murray was held out, the Cowboys were dominant on the ground. Phillip Tanner did the bulk of the early work and finished with 59 yards and a touchdown. Joseph Randle handled the late duty and had 70 yards as Dallas piled up 170 yards rushing. Allen, Parcells and the other five inductees — Cris Carter, Jonathan

Dallas running back Lance Dunbar tries to escape the grasp of Miami linebacker Philip Wheeler in the first quarter Sunday. Ogden, Warren Sapp, Curley Culp and Dave Robinson — were on hand and were honored again before the game. Parcells, who coached Dallas and was an executive for the Dolphins in his final two NFL stops, walked through a line of players from both teams, pointing and exchanging barbs and smiles with them. Soon after, Dallas led 7-0 on Tanner’s 1-yard run. The Cowboys were set up at the Miami 9 when Ryan Tannehill botched a handoff to Lamar Miller on the Dolphins’ first offensive play and Nick Hayden recovered. Tanner soon departed with a left arm injury, but returned and ran over and through Miami’s defense. Dallas moved the ball well in offensive coordinator Bill Callahan’s first outing as its play caller; those duties were taken away from head coach Jason Garrett in the offseason. Of
course, few starters ever made it onto the field for either side. Dan Bailey’s 49-yard field goal made it 10-0, then Holloman made his long sprint to the end zone. Dan Carpenter kicked a 27-yard field goal for Miami, which used Tannehill for only 10 snaps before Moore came in. Third-string QB Pat Devlin hit rookie Keenan Davis with a 5-yard TD pass on fourth down in the final period, making it 17-10, and Carpenter added a 45yarder. But rookie Kendial Lawrence ran in from 7 yards with 1:57 left to clinch it for Dallas, even though Moore returned and added a 5-yard TD pass to Kyle Miller with 16 seconds to go. Defensive end Dion Jordan, a former Oregon standout who was the third overall pick in the draft, had little impact for the Dolphins.

Franklin earns sixth gold medal at world meet BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Missy Franklin climbed to the top of the podium one more time in Spain before heading off to college. With that step, the 18-year-old joined a very exclusive club. Missy, we’d like to introduce you to Michael Phelps, Mark Spitz, Ian Thorpe and Kristin Otto. “I still can’t really believe that it happened,” Franklin said. She claimed her record sixth gold medal of the world championships Sunday night, swimming the leadoff leg for the Americans in the 400-meter medley relay. Franklin gave the U.S. a slight lead
in the backstroke, and her teammates — Jessica Hardy, Dana Vollmer and Megan Romano — made it look easy from there. The winning time was 3 minutes, 53.23 seconds, nearly two seconds ahead of runner-up Australia, with Russia claiming the bronze. “I had some really great races that I’m really proud of, and there’s still a bunch where I have a lot of room to improve,” Franklin said. “So I’m really excited for the next year and the year after that and all the years following those.” It might be hard to top this one. Franklin became the winningest
female swimmer ever at a world meet, eclipsing the record that was shared by Tracy Caulkins, who won five times in 1978, and Libby Trickett, who did it in 2007. Perhaps more impressively, Franklin became only the fifth swimmer to capture as many as six golds at either worlds or an Olympics. Quite a club it is. Phelps won six golds at the 2004 Athens Olympics, seven at the 2007 worlds and, of course, a record eight at the Beijing Olympics, eclipsing Spitz’s mark of seven at the 1972 Munich Games. Otto won six golds at the 1988 Seoul
Olympics — an accomplishment since clouded by revelations of rampant doping in East Germany — and Thorpe claimed a half-dozen victories at the 2001 worlds. The American men celebrated what looked to be an easy victory in the 400 medley relay, only to discover that 19-year-old breaststroker Kevin Cordes, the least experienced member of the foursome, left too soon on the exchange between the first and second legs. The U.S., which touched nearly 1 1 ⁄2 seconds ahead of France, was disqualified. The French moved up to take the gold, while the silver
went to Australia and Japan snatched the bronze. “That’s like a punch in the gut right there,” said Bob Bowman, coach of the U.S. men’s team. Franklin was not even chosen as the top female swimmer of the meet. That award went to fellow American Katie Ledecky, who won four golds and set two world records. She edged out Franklin based on a formula that doesn’t count the relays and gives bonus points for world marks. Franklin had no complaints. “It could not go to a better person,” Franklin said.

Upton each had a pair of hits with a double apiece for Atlanta, which matched its seasonbest winning streak. Pirates 5, Rockies 1: A.J.
