Judge clears way for ruling
according to the White House. Obama also was to headline a pair of high-dollar fundraisers benefiting Democratic candidates in the November elections. On Thursday, the president and first lady Michelle Obama planned to attend the dedication ceremony for the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx kicked off the public works push Monday, warning that the Highway Trust Fund, which relies on gasoline taxes, could run dry in August. Those taxes haven’t gone up in 20 years. On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden said in St. Louis that “we’ve stalled” on public works projects, while highlighting a $410 million renovation to the Gateway Arch funded largely by
EUGENE (AP) — A federal judge ruled Wednesday that a national group cannot defend Oregon’s ban on same-sex marriage after the state attorney general refused to do so, paving the way for a ruling on the voter-approved ban that could come at any time. The National Organization for Marriage argued it should be allowed to intervene on behalf of its Oregon members. But U.S. District Judge Michael McShane said the attorney general is accountable to Oregon voters, while the group supporting marriage solely between a man and woman is not. “I’m not prepared to substitute a third party for the executive branch,” McShane said. The decision is a blow for critics of gay marriage, who had hoped to join the case so they could appeal any ruling striking down Oregon’s same-sex marriage ban. The group’s chairman and lawyer, John Eastman, said he plans to appeal Wednesday’s ruling to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. “These things never end at the trial court,” Eastman said. The judge has not said when he plans to rule on the underlying case. McShane found the National Organization for Marriage did not file its request in a timely manner and failed to show that its members had specific interests that needed to be protected. The group said it was seeking to defend the interests of its Oregon members but declined to identify them, citing fears they would be harassed. It said the members include a county clerk who issues wedding licenses, the owner of a wedding business, and a resident who voted in favor of the 2004 ballot measure that added the same-sex marriage ban to the state constitution. The request was opposed by lawyers for the state and for four gay and lesbian couples, who brought two cases that later were merged. Democratic Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum said the ban is legally indefensible and has urged the judge to throw it out, creating a rare case where both plaintiffs and defendants sought the same out-

LINCOLN CITY (AP) — An Oregon coastal city where property values are rising faster than incomes is struggling to find a compromise between owners of vacation rentals and year-round residents. Tourism is a mainstay in Lincoln City, population about 8,000. There are about 500 vacationrental homes sprinkled throughout the residential zones, and the city is considering whether to regulate their growth by, for example, limiting where vacation properties can be located, limiting rental days and setting safety standards. The median household income in Lincoln City rose by about 10 percent between 2000 and 2011, while the median house price rose by about 45 percent during that time period, the Salem Statesman Journal reports. City Council member Chester Noreikis said regulations are need-
WASHINGTON (AP) — The government is running out of money to repair deteriorating roads, bridges and ports, and President Barack Obama says more federal spending will help avert a looming crisis that could stifle economic growth and torment commuters. Obama’s visit Wednesday afternoon to New York’s Tappan Zee Bridge was a central part of his administration effort this week to call attention to the nation’s crumbling infrastructure. The major Hudson River crossing point, which opened to traffic in 1955, is now being replaced at a cost of $3.9 billion. The financing is largely by bonds paid for through higher tolls. In addition to promoting a four-year, $302 billion transportation plan that he wants Congress to back, the president intended to cite efforts to cut red tape and delays in permitting,

But regulations could hurt the tourism industry and jeopardize jobs, workers and property owners said. SEE RENTALS | A10

Dr. Proskurowski graduated from Amherst College with a degree in chemistry but was lured to Earth sciences with the prospects of using the submersible Alvin to study hydrothermal vents.

Adhering to the public will, not the ‘flaw’ Our view Our elected leaders have set a tone and direction for the South Coast Community Foundation. The foundation’s board would do well to follow that direction immediately.
What do you think? The World welcomes letters. Email us at email@example.com.
Seems we have a disagreement over whose rules rule. Last week the Community Enhancement Plan work group approved a set of bylaws to govern the South Coast Community Foundation. The work group is the body of elected and administrative officials undertaking the detail work of crafting an entire plan, of which the foundation is a part. Briefly, the Community Enhancement Plan is being created to accept and manage the expected financial windfall should the Jordan Cove Energy Project build a liquefied natural gas export plant here.
The entire plan is the responsibility of four government entities — the cities of Coos Bay and North Bend, the Coos County Commission and the board of the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay. Those partners are the ones that are supposed to be making the rules and are ultimately responsible for the results. In recognizing that responsibility, the work group produced bylaws for the foundation that require open meetings and transparent operations. Seems the founding members of the foundation don’t see it that way. This week, World reporter Chelsea Davis asked for a
meeting date and agenda for the foundation’s next meeting. The foundation’s president, Bill Lansing, wasn’t sure when the foundation would meet and said he would refuse her request for an agenda. He contends that all four partners must adopt the new bylaws (two have, two others are scheduled to), and he and his foundation colleagues must also adopt them. Until then, they don’t count. Lansing and his colleagues contend that they will continue to follow bylaws originally crafted in January. Those are the bylaws we said back in January contained a fatal flaw. They
created a board entirely insulated from the public. Our elected officials never approved them and, instead, got to work to change them. We can see the point Mr. Lansing’ is trying to make. We strongly disagree with him. We think the foundation board ought to abide by the clear direction being given by the entities who hold the ultimate power and the burden of responsibility. They should follow the lead of the Community Enhancement Plan work group and the governmental bodies that approved their board appointments, but not their flawed bylaws.
Notes on a 20-year-old scandal An exhausted Hillary Clinton crying on the New Hampshire primary trail; Bill Clinton’s heart attack; Jimmy Carter equating religious persecution with certain church propositions. They’re all reminders that politicians are people, too. With the reappearance of Monica Lewinsky — the White House intern at the center of President Bill Clinton’s impeachment scandal — on the national stage, one storyline is a review of who did not come to her aid back in the ‘90s. The “one free grope” pass that leading feminists gave President Clinton when faced with questions of abuse of power and sexual harassment was far from the feminist movement’s best moment. But those weren’t pretty days, and living through them once was enough. Recycling talking points and rhetoric from two decades ago does little good now — unless you’re a campaign strategist thinking it can help your candidate or hurt another. It also might miss the most important lessons of that shameful moment of contemporary history. KATHRYN In her recent piece in LOPEZ Vanity Fair, Lewinsky Columnist writes about the impact that Tyler Clementi had on her life. Clementi was an 18-year-old Rutgers University freshman who killed himself after video of him kissing another man was made public. The death deeply affected Lewinsky’s mother. Lewinsky realized her mother “was reliving 1998, when she wouldn’t let me out of her sight. She was replaying those weeks when she stayed by my bed, night after night, because I, too, was suicidal. The shame, the scorn, and the fear that had been thrown at her daughter left her afraid that I would take my own life — a fear that I would be literally humiliated to death.” Lewinsky writes that in the wake of Clementi’s death, her “own suffering took on a different meaning. Perhaps by sharing my story, I reasoned, I might be able to help others in their darkest moments of humiliation.” Sometimes, now and again, we are reminded that behind the public persona or the online profile, people — even the president and a former first lady who may become president, too — are human. We remember that there is more to life than our mistakes, political platforms or campaign success. Reading Lewinsky’s Vanity Fair piece, we are reminded of the humiliation Hillary Clinton suffered, too. Even as political junkies devour the latest news story on the road to 2016, we are reminded that even power couples are dealing with the drama of life and the choices they’ve made. Mrs. Clinton, confiding to a friend, might have tried to cast her husband in the best possible light,even while furious at him.The first lady of the United States might have gone on TV doing her best stand-by-her-man routine, even while denying doing anything of the sort. None of that changes the fact she’s a woman, a wife and a mother having to read about her family’s ugly secrets in the newspaper, again and again. When we fail to see the humanity in everyone, we’ve lost something of our souls. In his new book, “What Works,” newspaper columnist Cal Thomas makes a suggestion: “Start introducing yourself to people of political persuasions different from yours.” Think about common goals and results, he suggests. In the book, he lays out a whole host of contentious issues and opportunities for working together and opening lines of discussion that emphasize humanity over ideology. All these things are part of the recipe for success. The next time you see your political enemy stumble, consider it an opportunity. Not to go in for the kill, not for false civility, but for brotherly love. It might just make our politics more merciful, and even, dare we hope, constructive. It may even be the chance that justice needs to soar.

six years she has been sitting as a Circuit Court judge, hearing cases and resolving disputes in Gold Beach, Coquille and North Bend courts. She is fair, knowledgeable and courteous as she dispenses justice to all that appear before her. We are presented with a clear choice. It is in our best interest to retain Judge Beaman as a member of the 15th Judicial District team. Join me in voting for Judge Cynthia Beaman for Circuit Court judge. Roger Gould Coos Bay
Beaman shows her family values “Bingo! Bingo!” “Yes! I won a giant cookie!” “This is the best night ever!” Kids all over our community have been heard exclaiming these words after a Family Fun Night. These Family Fun Nights are events that Cynthia Beaman has generously donated her time to organize. Cynthia had a vision and saw a need for free community events and implemented her vision perhas now fectly. Cynthia advertised, organized and achieved amazing success with
numerous Family Fun Nights. These packed community events have shown our area that Beaman genuinely cares about our families. What a superb choice for judge — a family and service oriented community member! I’m impressed with the hundreds of hours Cynthia Beaman volunteers in our community through PTO, recreation basketball and soccer leagues, and sincere hospitality. Join me in re-electing Cynthia Beaman for Circuit Court judge. Our coast is fortunate to have such an impeccable choice of Cynthia Beaman for Circuit Court judge. Cindy Schofield Brookings

Time to move on and have a life Does Monica Lewinsky really think she was a victim of cyber bullying? Apparently so, according to her “coming out” piece in Vanity Fair, which is getting a lot of attention, ostensibly because of its potential impact on Hillary 2016. Nice excuse. But, really, does anyone honestly think Lewinsky’s story will have any impact on who the next president will be? Hard to believe. Cyber bullying — as a justification for the piece and as a definition of a contemporary role for Lewinsky — makes almost as little sense as the angle offered by political reporters, who are just trying to come up with some reason to keep feeding us the Clinton stories we seem so hungry to consume. Was Chelsea’s pregnancy really noteworthy because of the potential impact of the timing on her mother’s race for the presidency? Please. As if having a pregnant daughter would somehow mean Hillary couldn’t or shouldn’t run. So, too, for Lewinsky. Young people, happily, barely know who she is. Older women, some of
whom in the days leading up to Hillary’s 2000 run for Senate did hold it against her that she had not left her husband, ultimately came to SUSAN her side, par- ESTRICH ticularly after her Senate Columnist opponent put her down in a fashion that smacked of sexism. And then the issue basically disappeared. There always will be “Clinton haters” out there, but there are far fewer than in the past. And a relationship that happened 20 years ago between a woman who will be in her 40s in 2016 and a former president who will be turning 70 that year is pretty hard to get worked up about, particularly when the candidate is not the former president, but his wife. As for the Republicans, don’t forget that they came out of the impeachment mess looking worse than the president,not to mention
the first lady, having so massively overreacted and under the leadership of Republicans who had their own issues with extramarital affairs with staffers and lobbyists. This is hardly a chapter they should relish reliving. I feel sorry for Lewinsky, but not for the reasons she offers. She was not “cyberbullied” by the Drudge Report. There are plenty of people who wronged her: the president, who, as he acknowledged, had no business having a consensual relationship with a White House intern; her best friend, Linda Tripp, who secretly taped their conversations and used them to advance political goals; the various investigators who lost all perspective on the proper scope of their mandate; Republicans on Capitol Hill and their allies on talk radio and television who just couldn’t stop themselves from overreacting. As for her claim that she is troubled because Hillary is supposedly blaming the women (herself and Monica) and not her husband, believe me, I was there: She blamed him, too. Big time.
But Lewinsky is right about one thing: It’s time for her to move on, to have a life. On its face, it must seem horribly unfair that former President Bill Clinton is held in such high regard, while she has struggled. But this isn’t just sexism. It’s a reflection of the reality that their inappropriate relationship was, for him, a black mark in a lifetime marked by accomplishment, including after leaving the White House — while for her, there have been no great second or third acts. Maybe there won’t be; she has tried various projects, none of them successful. But the only way to move past a chapter is to move past it.I wish her luck You can’t move forward by dwelling on the past. In the meantime, the Clintons continue to “sell.” If you look at Hillary’s schedule, it looks like nothing so much as a candidate’s schedule. The Clintons, God bless them, have more staying power than any modern political figures. For her sake, not theirs, I hope Lewinsky unhitches her star from that wagon and finds a life of meaning of her own.

State Wife insists husband only speak English DEAR ABBY: My wife and I speak English as our native language. I also speak other languages fluently, although my wife does not. When we travel to a country where I speak the language, she insists I speak only English. She says everybody in the world now speaks English and accuses me of showing off when I converse with a local in his or her language. She says it makes her uncomfortable. I realize many people in other countries speak DEAR some —or even a lot of — English, but many do not. What do you think? —SPEECHLESS IN ATLANTA D E A R JEANNE SPEECH PHILLIPS L E S S : Much as your wife might wish it, not everybody in the world speaks English. That you are able to speak to individuals in their native language is a tremendous asset when you travel. It makes for a warmer welcome and a fuller experience wherever you go, and I hope you will continue to use the skill you have worked to acquire. However, to carry on long, involved conversations while your wife just stands there is rude, and if you find out that the person with whom you are talking also speaks English, you should make an effort to see that she is included. DEAR ABBY: I was born with a very weak heart. At the age of 23, I went into heart failure and needed surgery. It has been two years since my open heart procedure, and it has changed my life for the best. As a young, semi-attractive male, I feel insecure about my scar. I went to the beach with friends, and so many people looked at my scar I got uncomfortable and put my shirt back on for the rest of the time. I haven’t gone back to the beach since. And in situations where guys go shirtless, I wear mine even over the protests of my friends. I can’t get over the scar. I feel like I’m disfigured. Any advice on how I can deal with this huge change? — SELFCONSCIOUS IN GEORGIA DEAR SELF-CONSCIOUS: Because you’re sensitive about the scar, perhaps you should talk to a plastic surgeon about your options in having it reduced. However, in my opinion, you are not “disfigured” — you are ALIVE. You fought for your life and won. Few people get through life without some “battle scars.” Since you can’t change the fact that it’s there, consider changing the way you think about it. In a way, it’s your medal of honor. Scars have been known to fade with time, and so does self-consciousness. DEAR ABBY: My grandson will be getting married in Chicago. What’s the appropriate dress code regarding wearing pantyhose these days? It seems everyone you see in a dress is bare-legged. I want to be comfortable, but also appropriately dressed. — BEST-DRESSED GRANDMA DEAR GRANDMA: It depends upon how formal the wedding will be and whether it will be held indoors or outside. If it’s outside and informal, and the weather is hot and humid, you could go barelegged. However, if it’s indoors and the attire is dressy — and you want to maintain your reputation as “best-dressed granny” — hold up your “end” and wear pantyhose.

Police seek help finding Springfield man STATE
The Associated Press
A Bend Police Department car, a former Cheney, Wash., police car, is photographed May 8, in Bend, Rick Campbell, the current commander of the Cheney Police Department, said the car grill used to be a patrol car that was taken off the vehicle line when a new motor caused the transmission to go bad. The car sat in the department’s surplus until 2009. The department went ahead with the plan and sent the car to Spokane Community College, where students stripped it down to its frame in return for the car’s engine. From there, a local metal worker installed the grill and meat smoker. All together, Campbell said, the project cost the department about $10,000, paid for by grants.
In Bend, a police grilling can be a tasty thing BEND (AP) — Former Bend Police Chief Jeff Sale is no longer employed by the department, but one of his legacies will live on: the giant car grill known informally as the “Car-B-Que.” “It’s a good civic outreach tool for the police department,” said interim Chief Jim Porter. “It lets people see a side of a police officer that they don’t always get to see.” Police The Bend Department’s car barbecue, a former Cheney, Wash., police patrol car that was gutted and converted into a barbecue, first appeared in Bend in summer 2012. The hood pops up to reveal a grill, while the inside of the car contains a meat smoker. The car barbecue is a project that Sale, with other members of the Cheney Police Department, came up with as a way to engage the community when Sale was chief there. Sale was fired from the Bend Police Department in January, shortly after Lt. Chris Carney resigned in the wake of a sex scandal. Rick Campbell, the current commander of the Cheney Police Department, said the car grill used to be a patrol car that was taken off the vehicle line when a new motor caused the transmission to go bad. The car sat in the department’s surplus until 2009.
“We were drinking coffee one rainy day, trying to figure out what to do with it,” Campbell said. “(Sale) started talking about this barbecue class he’d gone to, and we started thinking, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if we took this patrol car and turned it into a barbecue?”’ The department went ahead with the plan and sent the car to Spokane Community College, where students stripped it down to its frame in return for the car’s engine. From there, a local metal worker installed the grill and meat smoker. Altogether, Campbell said, the project cost the department about $10,000, paid for by grants. Campbell said the large car grill became a mainstay at community events, and that during the town’s annual Jubilee event in July, it was used in a barbecue cook-off that acted as a qualification round for a regional barbecue contest. When Sale was hired as Bend police chief in 2011 and he left Cheney, he borrowed the car barbecue for a few Bend events, Campbell said. Sale eventually decided to bring the car grill out to Bend permanently. Campbell said Bend purchased it from the city of Cheney for about $7,500. Porter said Sale secured all of the financing for the
grill through grants and sponsors, although he didn’t know specifics about it. Since arriving in Bend, the car barbecue was repainted to look like a Bend police patrol car, and the department uses it at community events in the summer. It’s appeared at events such as Bite of Bend and has acted as a vehicle for fundraising for local nonDepartment profits. volunteers sold burgers grilled in the Car-B-Que at the Flashback Car Cruz last year, raising $2,400 for Central Oregon Veterans Outreach. Though Sale is no longer police chief, Porter said the car grill will still be used by the department at several community events, such as Bend Summer Festival, throughout the grilling season. The biggest challenge, Porter said, has been to find enough officers and community volunteers to man it. “Our chief (Sale) had a passion for it,” Porter said. In Cheney, Campbell said, there are many in the police department who take a sentimental view of their old Car-B-Que. “It was a rainstorm, coffee, camaraderie kind of thing,” said Campbell. “There are a couple guys who miss it that, if it ever came back on the block, would want to buy it back.”
Parole board weighing release of Beaverton killer PORTLAND (AP) — Oregon’s parole board will take as much time as it needs to make “a very difficult decision” about whether to release a 40-year-old man who was convicted at 15 of raping and killing a high school classmate in Beaverton, its leader says. The three-member board is deciding the fate of Conrad Engweiler, convicted of killing 16-year-old Erin Tonna Reynolds. It must decide whether he is a danger to society. His case has been repeatedly before the courts over the years since because he was initially sentenced under unclear guidelines. His lawyer, Andy Simrin, has argued that, with goodbehavior time considered, he’s overdue for release. The state Supreme Court has told the board to start the prerelease process “with appropriate dispatch.” At a hearing Tuesday, Engweiler told the board that his years in prison have taught him remorse, empathy and compassion. Kristin Chairperson Winges-Yanez said that in The World publishes death notices and service listings as a free public service. Obituaries and “Card of Thanks” items are supplied by families or funeral homes and are published for a fee. For details, contact Amanda at email@example.com, or 541-269-1222 ext. 269.
his latest psychological exams, Engweiler showed signs of being anti-social, obsessive-compulsive and narcissistic. He was sometimes defensive and wanted to be in control, doctors said. At the end of the hearing, the board declined to issue an immediate decision. Winges-Yanez didn’t set a deadline for making it. The board can set a release date or defer it. The board can consider the exams, the inmate’s plans and other factors. At a hearing Tuesday, Engweiler recounted the crime. He said he set out only to steal Reynolds’ car and said he was angered when she wouldn’t give him the keys. He said he forced her to perform oral sex and then raped her in the back seat of
the car. Afterward, he said, “In a fit of rage, I slipped the rope around her neck and strangled her to death.” Then, he said, he dragged her body to a pile of yard debris, and bashed her head repeatedly with a vodka bottle. The victim’s family members have long said they want Engweiler to remain in prison and spoke again Tuesday. “This is Erin,” said her father, Earl Reynolds, showing a photo of her. “He murdered her,” he said, pointing at Engweiler. Engweiler stared down. His knee bounced. He breathed deeply. His face twisted. “If you let him out,” Reynolds said, “somebody else is going to suffer.”

PORTLAND (AP) — Oregon State Police detectives are trying to find a 51-year-old Springfield man last seen in March. Randel Jon Brown’s mother reported the disappearance to authorities in Klamath Falls a little more than three weeks ago. Police say Brown went to Portland because his wife checked into a hospital there. An uncle rented Brown a North Portland motel room for two nights, and Brown was last seen at the Gateway Transit Center — about 9 miles east of the motel. Relatives say Brown has a mental illness and doesn’t have much money. Representatives from Brown’s Springfield bank told detectives there has been no account activity since March 8. Brown’s described as 5foot-6, 200 pounds, with thinning white hair and brown eyes. Those with information are asked to call police at 800-452-7888.
Man diverts money from veterans charity PORTLAND (AP) — Clackamas County authorities allege a 50-year-old Happy Valley man diverted money intended for an organization set up to help veterans with post-traumatic stress after his son returned from National Guard service in Iraq and committed suicide. The Sheriff’s Office says the organization was incorporated under state law but never got the Internal Revenue Service tax-exempt status it claimed. The Sheriff’s Office said Michael Andrew Brennan was arrested Tuesday on theft by deception charges. He’s also accused of food stamp fraud and of taking money from his father-in-law. Matthew son, His Michael Brennan, died in 2011.
Internal affairs chief faces charges PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The head of the Oregon State Police’s Office of Professional Standards faces misdemeanor criminal charges after investigators say he used a departmentissued fuel card for his personal vehicle. police said State Wednesday that Capt. Jeff Lanz has been charged with first-degree official misconduct and third-degree theft. The alleged thefts occurred between October and April, and the 39-yearold captain was placed on administrative leave a little more than two weeks ago. Lanz joined the department in January 1999. He worked in the Oregon State University office until a promotion in July 2011 made him head of the department’s internal affairs unit. No court date has been set.
D I G E S T year-old Artemio TrenadoTrejo was detained by store employees Tuesday after a woman looking at items on a shelf felt something touch her leg and noticed a man crouched below holding a cell phone camera. Trenado-Trejo was booked into jail on a harassment charge and later released. He was re-arrested Wednesday after a deputy connected him to a May 3 incident at a Fred Meyer store. In that case, a woman said a man aggressively tried to speak with her and then reached into her car after she declined. He removed his hand when she rolled up the window. Trenado-Trejo was charged with harassment and unlawful entry into a motor vehicle.
Woman pulled gun on officer before death PORTLAND (AP) — The Salem Police Department says a 25-year-old woman repeatedly tried to cock a handgun before she was shot and killed by a police officer. Jacklynn Rashaun Ford was killed May 9 after a traffic stop in which police say she ran from her vehicle after giving a false name. The department says officer Trevor Morrison stopped Ford’s car after she failed to signal a turn. When she ran, Morrison sent his police dog, Baco, after her. Baco stopped Ford and Morrison shouted commands at her. The department says Ford then produced a handgun, later found loaded, which she tried and failed to cock. Morrison shot Ford in the head and the chest.
Human remains found in Washington County PORTLAND (AP) — The Washington County Sheriff’s office says human remains were found in the Gales Creek area on Wednesday. The Sheriff’s Office says the remains were found by a Clean Water Services contractor who was spraying weeds along the Gales Greek.

News of the West 10,000 gallons of oil spill in LA LOS ANGELES (AP) — Crews sopped up the remains of about 10,000 gallons of crude oil that sprayed into Los Angeles streets and onto buildings early Thursday after a high-pressure pipe burst. A geyser of crude spewed 20 feet high over approximately half a mile at about 12:15 a.m. and was knee-high in some parts of the industrial area of Atwater Village before the oil line was remotely shut off, said Fire Capt. Jaime Moore. A handful of commercial businesses near the border of Glendale was affected, as well as a strip club that was evacuated. Firefighters and hazardous materials crews responded. Several roads were closed. Four people at a medical business were evaluated with respiratory complaints, and two people were transferred to a hospital, Moore said. By dawn, an environmental cleaning company had vacuumed up most of the oil. Crews put down absorbent material to sop up the remaining crude and then used high-pressure hoses to wash the streets with a soap solution. Officials previously said 50,000 gallons had spilled but that number was revised downward after the vacuuming began. Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott said there was no “visible evidence” that the oil entered storm drains, which empty into the Los Angeles River. But he said it’s possible that some oil seeped under manhole covers. The 20-inch pipe burst at a transfer pumping station along a pipeline that runs from Bakersfield to Texas, Moore said.
Airport jetway drops as people exit flight SEATAC, Wash. (AP) — A jet bridge dropped several feet Tuesday as passengers were exiting a Southwest Airlines flight at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, but no one was injured, officials said. The end of the walkway, where it was attached to the plane, fell 6 to 8 feet. Some passengers were on the bridge at the time, but it was unclear how many, said airport spokesman Perry Cooper. The cause of the drop was described as a mechanical failure. Thanks to a backup system — a large screw under the jetway that turns as it is raised or lowered — the bridge fell slowly, and those who were on it walked up to the gate, Cooper said. About half of the passengers — 60 people — had exited the aircraft when the walkway fell. The rest left by a stairway brought to the other side of the plane. covering A canvas designed to protect passengers from the weather also caught on the aircraft's door, pulling the nose of the plane toward the ground. The plane was taken out of service pending inspections for possible damage, a Southwest Airlines official said. By Tuesday afternoon, crews had brought in a large crane to lift the walkway and allow the plane to back away from it. The plane, operating as Flight 570, had arrived from Phoenix and was supposed to continue on to Chicago's Midway International Airport.

Idaho scrambling over same-sex marriage ban ruling
The Associated Press
A fireman drags a hose as smoke rises from a nearby wildfire Wednesday, in Carlsbad, Calif.
Crews make gains on worst of fires SAN MARCOS, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters gained ground overnight on a string of major San Diego area wildfires — except for one in the city of San Marcos where the 700-acre blaze burned out of control Thursday as another scorcher day dawned. Nine fires in all were burning an area of more than 14 square miles amid a heat wave and dry conditions, said San Diego County officials, who warned also of poor air quality with black and gray smoke wafting over the region. The wildfires drove tens of thousands from their homes and shut down schools and amusement parks, including Legoland. Firefighters contended with temperatures approaching 100 degrees and gusty winds as they tried to contain flames fueled by brush and trees left brittle by drought. Officials said a Carlsbad area blaze was 60 percent contained and had burned 400 acres. The wildfire destroyed an 18-unit condominium complex and four residences, Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall said. Some evacuation orders were being lifted in Carlsbad but a major power outage
and hotspots were still a concern. Efforts were focusing on San Marcos, a university city where hundreds of new evacuation orders were issued on Thursday. More than 20,000 evacuation notices were sent to residents Wednesday and a California State University campus with nearly 10,000 students in the middle of final exams was shut down at least through Thursday. San Diego County officials said that the blaze had destroyed three homes. Tuzo Jerger was one of thousands told to evacuate because of the Carlsbad fire. The 66-year-old real estate broker packed files, a surfboard, golf clubs, clothes and photos and sought solace at a friend’s hilltop house in nearby San Marcos, only to see another fierce wildfire break out there and force thousands from their homes. “I thought, ‘Oh my God, it’s going to come this way,”’ Jerger said at a San Marcos restaurant where he found relief in a slice of pizza. The blaze in the coastal city of Carlsbad, about 30 miles north of San Diego, was the most destructive of the fires so far.
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A federal judge’s decision to allow same-sex marriages in Idaho starting Friday has attorneys for the state scrambling to appeal and gay rights advocates planning their next steps. U.S. District Magistrate Judge Candy Dale overturned Idaho’s ban on same-sex marriages Tuesday, and on Wednesday she refused to put pending marriages on hold while Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter and Attorney General Lawrence Wasden appeal. Otter and Wasden both asked the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for an emergency stay while they fight the lower court’s ruling. “My job now is to ensure our state’s voice is heard loud and clear on appeal, and that Idaho’s right to self-determination is not further undermined,” Otter said in a prepared statement. Matrimonial law expert Seymour J. Reisman said the appellate court is likely to issue the stay, and the U.S. Supreme Court is almost certain to take up the matter. But with several other states appealing rulings similar to the one handed down in
Idaho, it’s anyone’s guess which state’s case the high court will consider, said Reisman, a partner in the New York law firm Reisman Peirez Reisman and Capobianco LLP. “You can’t just have different states having different laws all over the place,” he said. “Nobody knows where they can live, what they can do.” After the ruling, the Idaho Republican Party issued a statement reaffirming the organization’s stance against same-sex marriage, and contending that the Tenth Amendment gives states the power to regulate and define marriage. “The disintegration of marriage will lead to the disintegration of our society,” Idaho GOP Chairman Barry Peterson said in a prepared statement. Gay couples who choose to get Idaho marriage licenses Friday are still open to housing and employment discrimination, noted former state Sen. Nicole LeFavour, Idaho’s first openly gay lawmaker and a leader of the “Add the Words” campaign.

Obama: No act of terror can match strength of US NATIONAL D I G E S T NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama praised the new Sept. 11 museum on Thursday as “a sacred place of healing and of hope” that captures both the story and the spirit of heroism and helping others that followed the attacks. “It’s an honor to join in your memories, to recall and to reflect, but above all to reaffirm the true spirit of 9/11 — love, compassion, sacrifice — and to enshrine it forever in the heart of our nation,” he told an audience of victims’ relatives, survivors, and rescuers at the ground zero museum’s dedication ceremony. “Like the great wall and bedrock that embrace us today, nothing can ever break us. Nothing can change who we are as Americans.” After viewing some of the exhibits, including a mangled fire truck and a memorial wall with photos of victims, the president recounted the story of Welles Crowther, a 24-year-old World Trade

Veterans Affairs ‘must do better’ on patient care WASHINGTON (AP) — Facing calls to resign, Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki said Thursday he is “mad as hell” over allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at a Phoenix veterans hospital and vowed to hold employees accountable for any misconduct. “Any adverse event for a veteran within our care is one too many,” Shinseki said at a Senate hearing Thursday on the Phoenix allegations and other problems at the VA. “We can, and we must do better.” Shinseki’s testimony marked his first extended comments since allegations surfaced last month that the Phoenix VA hospital maintained a secret waiting list to hide lengthy delays for sick
veterans. A former clinic director says up to 40 veterans may have died while awaiting treatment at the Phoenix facility. Some Republicans and veterans groups have called for Shinseki to resign. Pushing back against sometimes hostile questions, Shinseki said he welcomes a White House review of his beleaguered department after allegations the Phoenix hospital maintained a secret waiting list to hide lengthy delays for sick veterans. A former clinic director says up to 40 veterans may have died while awaiting treatment at the Phoenix facility. “If allegations about manipulation of appointment scheduling are true, they are completely unac-
ceptable — to veterans, to me and to our dedicated VA employees,” Shinseki said. The hearing before the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee comes as President Barack Obama has assigned White House deputy chief of staff Rob Nabors to work on a review focused on policies for patient safety rules and the scheduling of patient appointments. The move, announced late Wednesday, signals Obama’s growing concern over problems at the VA. Problems similar to those that surfaced in Phoenix have since been reported in other states. Sen. Patty Murray, DWash., said the hearing “needs to be a wake-up call for the department,” noting that outside reviews have
outlined problems with wait times and quality of care since at least 2000. “It’s extremely disappointing that the department has repeatedly failed to address wait times for health care,” Murray said. Murray told Shinseki she believes he takes the allegations seriously and wants to do the right thing, “but we have come to the point where we need more than good intentions.” Murray called for Shinseki to take “decisive action to restore veterans’ confidence in VA, create a culture of transparency and accountability and to change these years-long system-wide, problems.” Sen. John McCain, RAriz., said the Obama administration “has failed to
respond in an effective manner” to allegations made public more than a month ago. “This has created in our veterans’ community a crisis of confidence toward the VA - the very agency that was established to care for them,” McCain said. “Treating those to whom we owe the most so callously - so ungratefully - is unconscionable and we should all be ashamed,” McCain said. The American Legion and some congressional Republicans have called for Shinseki to resign, a move he and the White House have resisted. The VA’s inspector general is investigating the and Phoenix claims, Shinseki has ordered an audit of VA facilities nationwide to see how they provide access to care.
Minister to repay $1.2 million NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City minister who was the subject of an Associated Press investigation about misspent 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina charity funds has agreed to repay $1.2 million that he took from his congregation to buy an 18th century farmhouse on seven acres in rural New Jersey. The Rev. Carl Keyes and his wife, the Rev. Donna Keyes, who jointly led the Glad Tidings Tabernacle in Manhattan, signed a legal judgment Wednesday.
Gay marriages off in Arkansas LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Gay couples in Arkansas will not be able to get married even though the state Supreme Court upheld a ruling that struck down the ban on same-sex marriage because a separate law that prevents issuing marriage licenses to gays is still valid. In an unsigned order, the justices refused to put the ruling by Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza on hold. Even though they rejected the state’s request to suspend the ruling, though, their order will still prevent any other same-sex couples from getting marriage licenses in Arkansas, at least for now.
Media file lawsuit to challenge execution ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Associated Press and four other news organizations filed a lawsuit Thursday challenging the secret way in which Missouri obtains the drugs it uses in lethal injections, arguing the state’s actions prohibit public oversight of the death penalty. The lawsuit asks a state court judge to order the Missouri Department of Corrections to disclose where it purchases drugs used to carry out executions along with details about the composition and quality of those drugs.

World Turkey outraged as prime minister’s aide kicks protester ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — A video showing an aide to Turkey’s prime minister kicking a protester held on the ground by special forces police sparked outrage Thursday, tarnishing the Turkish leader’s image ahead of his expected run for president. Turkish newspapers also published photographs showing the adviser kicking the protester and identified him as Yusuf Yerkel, a deputy chief of staff at Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s office and adviser to the prime minister.

Israeli troops kill 2 Palestinians in clash RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — Israeli troops shot dead two Palestinian teens in a West Bank clash that erupted Thursday after Palestinians marked their uprooting during the Mideast war over Israel’s 1948 creation, a doctor said.

Turkish families bury miners as toll rises to 282 SOMA, Turkey (AP) — Women sang improvised ballads about the departed over freshly dug graves Thursday, even as backhoes carved row upon row of graves into the dirt and hearses lined up outside the cemetery with more victims of Turkey’s worst mining disaster. Rescue teams recovered another eight victims, raising the death toll to 282, with some 142 people still unaccounted for, according to government figures. The disaster Tuesday has set off protests around Turkey and thrown Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s presidential ambitions off stride. Blackening his reputation further, one of Erdogan’s aides was accused of kicking a protester on the ground. At a graveyard in the western town of Soma, where coal mining has been the main industry for decades, women wailed loudly in an improvised display of mourning. They swayed and sang songs about their relatives as the bodies were taken from coffins and lowered into their graves. Pictures of the lost relatives were pinned onto their clothing. “The love of my life is gone,” some sang, chanting the names of dead miners. No miner has been brought out alive since dawn Wednesday from the Soma coal mine where the explo-
sion and fire took place. Many mourners said they spent their whole lives fearing something like this. “The wives of the miners kiss their husbands in the morning. When they come back, even if they are five minutes late, everyone starts calling. You never know what is going to happen,” said Gulizar Donmez, 45, the daughter and wife of a miner and neighbor of one of the victims. Energy Minister Taner Yildiz on Thursday announced that a fire inside the mine was dying down,offering hope that rescuers would soon be able to speed up their search for those missing. Erdogan, who is expected to soon announce his candidacy for Turkey’s presidential election in August, was not welcome during his visit to the area Wednesday. He was forced to take refuge at a supermarket after angry crowds called him a murderer and a thief, in a reference to alleged corruption, and clashed with police. newspapers Turkish Cumhuriyet, Milliyet and others on Thursday printed photographs they said were of an Erdogan aide kicking a protester who was on the ground and being held by special forces police. The papers identified the aide as Yusuf Yerkel.

15 crew indicted over SKorean ferry disaster SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Prosecutors indicted the captain of the sunken South Korean ferry and three crew on homicide members charges Thursday, alleging they were negligent and failed to protect more than 300 people missing or dead in the disaster. Less serious indictments were issued against the 11 other crew members responsible for navigating the vessel. Capt. Lee Joon-seok and the other homicide defendants — a first mate, a second mate and the chief engineer — could face the death penalty if convicted, according to the Supreme Court, though no one has been executed in South Korea since 1997. The 11 others were indicted for alleged negligence and abandoning passengers in need when the ship sank on April 16, according to prosecutors. The indictment was filed Thursday in Gwangju District Court and a trial date will be decided in a few days, according to a court official who requested anonymity due to department rules. The official said all 15 defendants are expected to be tried together. The indicted crew members were among the first group of people rescued when the Sewol began badly listing, and all were arrested last month. Lee initially told passengers to stay in their cabins and took about half an hour to issue an evacuation order but it’s not known if his message was ever conveyed to passengers. In a video taken by the coast guard, he was seen escaping the ferry in his underwear to a rescue boat while many passengers were still in the sinking ship. Lee told reporters after his arrest last month that he withheld the evacuation
order because rescuers had yet to arrive and he feared for the passengers’ safety in the cold, swift water. The head of the ferry’s owner, Chonghaejin Marine Co. Ltd., and four other company employees have also been arrested. Authorities suspect improper stowage and overloading of cargo may have contributed to the disaster. About one month after the sinking, 284 bodies have been retrieved and 20 others are listed as missing. Only 172 people, including 22 of the ship’s 29 crew members, survived. Most of the victims were students from a single high school near Seoul who were traveling to the southern tourist island of Jeju. Underwater searches for the bodies have been hampered by strong currents and bad weather. Family members of the missing passengers are still camping out at a nearby port waiting for news of their loved ones. One civilian diver died after falling unconscious during a search.

That extra spending would come from revenue raised by closing what the administration says are corporate tax loopholes and by making other changes in business taxes, a long shot in a politically divided Congress.

McShane addressed the issue in court before handing down his ruling, saying he’s never attended a rally or spoken publicly about gay marriage, and he can’t recall ever donating money to gayrights causes. McShane said gay men have regularly appeared before him in criminal, civil and family cases, sometimes with their children. “I’ve sent people with very similar characteristics to me to prison,” McShane said. “To me, it’s irrelevant.”

FWL meet features 4A leaders
SWOCC set for NWAAC tourney
BY JOHN GUNTHER The World
There will be no shortage of stars when the Far West League gathers for its district track and field championships Friday and Saturday in Florence. The seven schools in the league feature Class 4A state leaders in seven events and athletes ranked second in eight more. And those state leaders come from five different schools, giving nearly all the league’s seven teams hopes for success not just this week, but also next week at the state meet in Eugene.
Softball team enters season-ending event as the No. 6 seed ■
THE WORLD The Southwestern Oregon Community College softball team has a history of success at the season-ending NWAACC tournament. The Lakers hope to continue that this week in Portland. SWOCC is the No. 6 seed in the 16-team field for the event, which begins Friday. The Lakers open up against Pierce at 10 a.m., and likely would face No. 3 seed Wenatchee Valley in the second round with a win. Wenatchee Valley won the East Region and is 32-5 overall, though one of its losses came early in the season to the Lakers. The Delta Park complex in Portland features four fields. The second game Friday for the Lakers will be at 2 p.m. whether they win or lose the opener. SWOCC enters the event with momentum, having won its last five games, including a seasonending win over Lower Columbia that was stopped early by the mercy rule. “We ended up on a pretty high note, especially run-ruling LCC the last game,” SWOCC coach Megan Corriea said. The Lakers finished third in the NWAACC South Region behind the top two seeds in the NWAACC tournament, Mount Hood and Clackamas. “I think that makes us better,” Corriea said of the grinding league schedule. SWOCC finished the regular season 28-15 overall and 11-9 in the South Region. The Lakers weren’t able to beat either Mount Hood or Clackamas, but went 11-1 against the region’s other teams. They also pounded Pierce 11-1 this year. That game, of course, doesn’t mean anything if the Lakers don’t beat Pierce again Friday. The late-season momentum should help. “I think the key is just getting hot,” she said, adding she also hopes the team plays relaxed. “The looser I can get them to play, the better we will be.” SWOCC will need solid pitching, led by Jessica Myers. Offensively, SWOCC’s leader recently has been Nicole Cardoza, who is batting .388 for the season with nine home runs — three in one win. Hannah Leming is hitting .380 with seven home runs and teambest totals of 43 RBIs and 38 runs. SEE LAKERS | B2

Bandon’s Hannah Smith leaps in the girls triple jump Friday at the 106th annual Coos County Track and Field Meet.
Tiger senior seeks record BY JOHN GUNTHER The World
BANDON — Every time she walks by the school record board for track and field, Bandon senior Hannah Smith takes note of the triple jump mark. Gretchen Wehner holds the record with a mark of 35 feet, 1 inch. Smith hopes by the end of season, her name has replaced Wehner’s in the school’s athletic lore. She gets her next chance Saturday, during the district meet that this year is hosted by the Tigers. “I’m excited,” she said. “I always PR at home. I’m hoping I can get the school record.” Smith is easily the district leader, and if she jumps well she will advance to the state meet next week in Eugene, giving her anoth-
er shot if she fails to set the record this week. Smith placed fourth at the Class 3A state meet last year, and has improved on her mark three different times this year. She set her new best of 34-7 at the Coos County Meet last week. She talks fondly of the event, and her smile accentuates one of her most noticeable physical features, a face filled with freckles — she even uses that word as part of her Twitter handle. But her love for the triple jump is not something that goes back for years. Smith was a sprinter and hurdler for the Tigers until last season, when she was introduced to the triple jump. “My coach wanted me to try it,” she said. “As soon as I did, I loved it.”
Bandon hosts district meet THE WORLD Last year, Coquille and Bandon had to travel halfway across the state for their district track meet, which was held in Lakeview. This year, it’s the Honkers with the long trip, since Bandon is hosting the Class 3A District 1 meet Friday and Saturday. Both the host Tigers and the Red Devils have several athletes who should advance to the state meet next week in Eugene.
Action this week starts at 10:30 a.m. Friday and 11 a.m. Saturday at Siuslaw High School. The top two finishers in each event advance to state. The team races come down to traditional league powers North Bend and Siuslaw and newcomer Marshfield. The Pirates, who were the dominant girls program their final few years in the Midwestern League, are slight favorites to bring home the girls trophy this week, with their most likely threat coming from crosstown rival North Bend. The boys race appears to be North Bend’s to lose with the Bulldogs’ dominance in the sprints and strength across the board. North Bend is projected to score in every event (as is Marshfield’s girls team). Throughout the two days, the individual highlights should be many. Friday’s finals feature a few outstanding distance runners. Marshfield’s Shaylen Crook leads Class 4A in the 3,000 meters, with Siuslaw freshman Celie Mans ranking third. Siuslaw’s Mitchell Butler and Mack Marbas rank first and second among boys. Meanwhile, the boys long jump features Siuslaw’s Billy Jones, who ranks second in the state. The first-day throwing events for girls include Siuslaw standout Ashlee Cole (javelin) and Sutherlin’s Olivia Gulliford (shot put). Gulliford’s better event comes Saturday — she is the state leader in the discus.

Portland season ends in loss to Spurs
The Southwestern Oregon Community College baseball team faces a must-win situation Friday against Lane if the Lakers want to advance to the NWAACC tournament. SWOCC hosts Lane for its regularly scheduled season-ending doubleheader. First, though, the Lakers and Titans have to finish their game suspended in the 12th inning a couple of weeks ago. With both teams tied at 16-11 in the standings, the Lakers need to win two of the three contests to finish second in the South Region and advance to the NWAACC tournament for perhaps the first time in school history. SWOCC athletic director Mike Herbert hasn’t found anybody who remembers them playing in the NWAACC event, though they finished second to Treasure Valley in the old OAACC in 1968, Herbert said. The suspended game, which is tied 2-all, will resume at noon Friday, followed by the regular doubleheader.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The veteran San Antonio Spurs showed Portland a few things about succeeding in the playoffs. The biggest lesson was how not to panic when an All-Star goes down. Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard each scored 22 points, and San Antonio overcame an injury to Tony Parker to close out the Western Conference semifinals with a 104-82 victory on Wednesday night. Patty Mills scored 18 points and Tim Duncan had 16 points and eight rebounds for San Antonio, which had four blowout victories in the five-game series. It’s the third straight conference finals appearance for San Antonio, which lost a heartbreaking seven-game series to the Miami Heat in last season’s NBA Finals. San Antonio, which had the NBA’s best record, will await the winner of the series between Oklahoma City and the Los Angeles Clippers. The Thunder have a 3-2 lead. “Whoever’s the best team, I want to play them,” Leonard said. “It’s gonna prepare us for the (NBA) finals.”
SWOCC needs two wins against Lane to reach NWAACC tourney THE WORLD
The Associated Press
Portland Trail Blazers starters, from left, Wesley Matthews, LaMarcus Aldridge, Damian Lillard, Robin Lopez, and Nicolas Batum, sit on the scorers table during a timeout in the second half Wednesday. LaMarcus Aldridge had 21 points for Portland, while Damian Lillard added 17 points and 10 assists. With Parker forced to exit in the first half with a hamstring
injury, Leonard, Mills and Green pressed the action on both ends. San Antonio finished with 13 steals, including five for Leonard, while forcing 18 turnovers. “My mindset was just trying to
be aggressive on the offensive end,” Leonard said. “Just knowing Tony was out, he’s very aggressive and still try to stick with our system. Play our offense, move the ball, just try to be a little more aggressive.” The Spurs also had 24 assists on 42 baskets, shooting 47 percent from the field, and had 43 fastbreak points. “They definitely showed us about moving the ball around,” Aldridge said “They made five or six passes every possession down. It just makes your defense tired and just makes guys make mistakes. They definitely showed use where we are trying to go.” After playing with various injuries throughout last postseason, the Spurs had been healthy in these playoffs until Wednesday. After returning to the court with 9:46 remaining in the second quarter following his normal rest, Parker left the game exactly a minute later. He headed back to the locker room followed closely by San Antonio general manager R.C. Buford and team physician, Dr. Paul Saenz. SEE BLAZERS | B2

Sports Pacific hopes for big day Saturday THE WORLD Pacific is the host for Saturday’s Class 1A District 2 meet, though you wouldn’t know it by the location. The meet will be held in Rogue River for the district, which includes all the Class 1A schools in Southern Oregon from the South Coast to North Lake in Lake County. Though the Pirates won’t be competing on their home track, they should have a big day, with a number of athletes favored to qualify for the Class 1A state meet. Among the girls, Riley Engdahl is one of the state leaders and favored in all three of her individual events this week — the 200 meters and the two hurdles events. The Associated Press Teammate Aumai Wills ranks Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome, with exercise rider Willie Delgado aboard, rounds a turn through a thick layer of fog at Pimlico Race second in the high hurdles.

200th victory at SWOCC. “It’s great,” she said. “A lot of it has to do with the players that I’ve brought in. “We’ve been really successful and I really try to recruit kids who are hardworking and dedicated.” This is Corriea’s seventh season as head coach and the sixth straight year the team has advance to the NWAACC tournament. The Lakers have sent a large group of players on to four-year schools and
Corriea anticipates as many as six more from this year’s team will sign letters of intent with schools after the season. She also praised the coaching staff, including longtime pitching coach Jeri Young, an expert in an area where Corriea doesn’t have much experience. “If I didn’t have coach Young, I’d be in a lot of trouble,” she said. “I’m really blessed to have her. “And Mark (Hubbard) has been with me since Day 1.”
This year, Corriea added Jenn Andrews, who played for the Lakers before she arrived at the school. Having little turnover on the staff has helped with consistency, the players all learning the same philosophies every year. And that has helped with the team’s success, especially at the NWAACC tournament, where the Lakers have finished in the top five a few times. “I’d like to carry that on,” Corriea said.
BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Olympic champion swimmer Katie Ledecky plans to swim for Stanford after she graduates from high school next year. The 17-year-old from Bethesda, Maryland, announced her commitment Thursday. She is a junior honors student at Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in her hometown. Ledecky will join Olympic champion Missy Franklin in the San Francisco Bay Area. Franklin is wrapping up her
freshman year at California. She plans to swim during her sophomore year before turning pro leading to the 2016 Rio Olympics. Ledecky won the 800meter freestyle as a 15-yearold at the 2012 London Olympics, where she was the youngest member of the entire U.S. team. A year later, she won four gold medals and broke two world records at the world championships in Barcelona. She was chosen the 2013 FINA world swimmer of the year.

Sports Kerr takes offer to coach Warriors
Miami finishes off Brooklyn MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James leaped onto a courtside table as the postgame celebration was starting, thumped his chest and punched the air. Next stop: The Eastern Conference finals. Again. James scored 29 points, Dwyane Wade added 28 and Ray Allen delivered two huge plays in the final seconds as the Heat rallied to beat the Brooklyn Nets 96-94 on Wednesday night, winning the second-round matchup 4-1. “It’s always been like that for us,” James said. “It’s never easy. It’s never easy for us.” Sure looks easy, though. It was the 10th straight series win for the two-time defending NBA champions. “When we met the first day for prep we said the No. 1 key, overwhelmingly the No. 1 key in this series, was great mental stability,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “That’s what it was down the stretch ... incredible focus.” Incredible defense, too, when it was needed most. Down by eight with less than five minutes left, the Heat forced Brooklyn into nine straight missed shots while peeling off a 12-0 run to take the lead. Allen’s 3-
pointer off an assist by Mario Chalmers with 32 seconds remaining was the go-ahead moment, and the Heat wouldn’t trail again. Allen disrupted Joe Johnson’s dribble on the game’s final play, James then swatted the bouncing ball out of everyone’s reach, time expired — and the Heat advanced. “Give the Heat credit,” Nets coach Jason Kidd said. “They were attacking there in the fourth quarter. We were attacking. Both teams were attacking. They made plays, they made shots and we didn’t.” Chris Bosh scored 16 and Allen finished with 13 for Miami. Johnson had 34 points, Paul Pierce scored 19 and Deron Williams had 17 for the Nets. It’s the sixth trip to the East title series in the last 10 seasons for Miami, which is bidding for a fourth straight trip to the NBA Finals — something only the Lakers and Celtics franchises have accomplished. James is heading to the East finals for the sixth time in eight seasons, the first two of those trips coming with Cleveland in 2007 and 2009. The Heat will next face either fifth-seeded

Miami guard Ray Allen celebrates his late 3-pointer against the Brooklyn Nets during Wednesday’s game. Washington or top-seeded Indiana. The Pacers lead that series 3-2, one win away from setting up a rematch with Miami that seemed like an absolute certainty for much of the season. “Obviously, we thought this was a game we should have won,” Johnson said. Brooklyn led 49-42 at the half, with Miami missing 15 of its first 16 tries from 3point range. The Nets closed the half on an 8-0 run and the lone bright spot in the
opening 24 minutes for Miami was Wade, who had 20 points — more than any other two players to that point combined — on 7-for12 shooting. “He has a way, right? He’s a playoff warrior,” Spoelstra said. Eventually, barely, Miami broke through. But it took most of the second half to get there, since whenever Miami tried to put together a run Brooklyn found a way to keep things together.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Golden State Warriors are taking another chance on a television analyst and former NBA guard who has never been a head coach at any level. The Warriors won the bidding war with the New York Knicks for Steve Kerr on Wednesday, hiring him away from the TNT broadcast table to be their coach. Kerr agreed to a five-year, $25 million deal said his agent, Mike Tannenbaum. The Warriors said they will introduce Kerr at a news conference after the contract is complete. Kerr had been in talks with the Knicks about becoming their coach since Phil Jackson took over as team president in March. He won three titles playing for Jackson in Chicago and another two under Gregg Popovich in San Antonio. Kerr told NBA.com, which first reported the agreement, that going to Golden State “just felt like the right move on many levels.” He said his daughter plays volleyball nearby at the University of California, Berkeley, his oldest son is in college in San Diego and his youngest son is a junior in high school. Kerr called the offer to coach the Knicks a “tantalizing” opportunity. He said it
was “agonizing” to say no to Jackson “because of what I think of him and what he’s done for my career.” “I told Phil, ‘I think I have to pursue this other opportunity,’” Kerr told the website. “He gave me his blessing. He said. ‘Go look at it, and do what was in my heart.’” Kerr, 48, said last month that he has wanted to coach since stepping down after three seasons as general manager of the Phoenix Suns in June 2010. And while the lure of rebuilding a flagship franchise with his mentor at Madison Square Garden looked appealing, the chance to coach a Western Conference contender in his home state proved to be too much. Kerr replaces Mark Jackson, who was fired by the Warriors on May 6 after three seasons and back-to-back playoff appearances — mostly due to a sour relationship with team management. The Warriors job is certainly a far more attractive one than when owner Joe Lacob hired Jackson away from the ESPN/ABC broadcast table in June 2011. The Warriors are coming off a 51win season and consecutive playoff appearances for the first time in 20 years, and they’ve surrounded star Stephen Curry with a talented young core.

Sports Hernandez faces murder charges THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON — Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez has been indicted on murder charges in a 2012 double slaying in Boston. Boston police spokeswoman Neva Coakley confirmed the indictment Thursday. Hernandez is already being held without bail after pleading not guilty to murder in the unrelated death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd last year. In the 2012 case, victims Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado were shot as they sat in a car in Boston’s South End. Police have said they were shot by someone who drove up alongside in an SUV and opened fire. Boston police have written in an affidavit there is probable cause to believe The Associated Press Hernandez was driving a Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz hits a solo home run off Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Caleb Thielbar during the fifth inning in vehicle used in the shooting and “may Minneapolis on Wednesday. have been the shooter.” H e r n a n d e z ’s lawyers did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
Ortiz on a tear, hits two more homers THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MINNEAPOLIS — David Ortiz homered twice for the second straight game and the Boston Red Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 9-4 on Wednesday night. Big Papi went 3-for-5 with two RBIs, one night after a four-hit performance against his former team. Both of his homeruns — off Kevin Correia (1-5) in the third and Caleb Theilbar in the fifth — traveled more than 400 feet into the right-field upper deck at Target Field, where he’s batting .528 (28 of 53) in 13 career games. It was more than enough for Felix Doubront (2-3), who allowed a run on seven hits in 6 1-3 innings and retired nine straight at one point. Doubront hadn’t won since April 3 at Baltimore, his first start of the season. White Sox 4, Athletics 2: Jose Abreu hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning to help Chicago snap a four-game losing streak. Gordon Beckham homered on the first pitch of the game for the White Sox, who rallied against Oakland’s bullpen to end a seven-game losing streak at the Coliseum. John Jaso and Josh Donaldson hit solo homers off Andre Rienzo for the Athletics. Beckham and Conor Gillaspie started the rally with one-out singles against Fernando Abad (0-1), and Abreu greeted Luke Gregerson with a no-doubt drive to left field for his 15th home run of the season. Abreu, a rookie slugger from Cuba, is the fourth player in major league history to hit 15 homers in his first 42 games,
Rays handcuff Mariners SEATTLE (AP) — Jake Odorizzi pitched one-hit ball for six innings, but the Tampa Bay Rays lost All-Star Ben Zobrist in a 2-0 victory over Seattle. Zobrist dislocated his left thumb on a headfirst slide while trying to steal second base in the fifth. The valuable all-purpose player jammed himself into the bag after being tagged out, walked off the field holding his hand and later had his thumb joining Wally Berger, Kevin Maas and Wally Joyner. Tigers 7, Orioles 5: Rajai Davis homered, and Detroit overcame a rare shaky performance by Justin Verlander to complete a three-game sweep. The Tigers have won 12 of their last 15 games, including eight in a row on the road. Baltimore has lost four straight. Verlander (5-2) allowed a seasonhigh five runs on six hits with four strikeouts and three walks in six innings. Indians 15, Blue Jays 4: David Murphy had five hits and five RBIs and Lonnie Chisenhall had five hits and an RBI and Cleveland beat Toronto. Corey Kluber (4-3) pitched seven innings to win consecutive starts for the first time this season, and Carlos Santana and Yan Gomes homered as the Indians set season-highs with 22 hits and 15 runs in winning for the sixth time in eight games. Infielder Steve Tolleson came on to
adjusted back into place. Zobrist will remain with the team for the final four games of a West Coast road trip and be re-evaluated when the Rays return home. Odorizzi (2-3) picked up his first win since the opening week of the season, teaming with three relievers on a combined two-hitter. Brandon Maurer (1-2) and the Seattle bullpen held the Rays to three hits. record the final out in the ninth inning after Gomes drilled a three-run homer off Neil Wagner. Throwing knuckleballs, Tolleson faced two batters, giving up a double to Chisenhall before Mike Aviles popped out. Astros 5, Rangers 4: Matt Dominguez hit an RBI single off the right-field wall in the ninth inning and Houston won a series against their instate rivals for the first time since 2008. The Astros took two of three after losing 15 straight series to the Rangers. Houston overcame a four-run deficit to win.
MILWAUKEE — Backup catcher Chris Stewart’s single keyed a three-run burst in the ninth inning against Francisco Rodriguez and sent the Pittsburgh Pirates past Milwaukee 4-1 Wednesday night, ending the Brewers’ three-game winning streak. Rodriguez (1-1) had given up only one run in 21 innings in his first 21 games. But the Pirates tagged the Milwaukee closer for four consecutive hits to beat the Brewers for only the second time in nine games. Milwaukee managed only six hits and went 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position minus Carlos Gomez. The star center fielder dropped his appeal Wednesday and began a three-game suspension for his part in a benchclearing fracas at Pittsburgh on Easter Sunday. Stewart, making only his eighth start of the season, singled for a 2-1 lead. Starling Marte, playing for the first time since exiting Saturday with tightness in his back, then hit a two-run double. Marlins 13, Dodgers 3: Ed Lucas homered for Miami during a six-run second inning in which second baseman Dee Gordon’s fielding error led to five unearned runs, and the Marlins scored another six runs two innings later.
Stewart-Haas has standby for Busch KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — Stewart-Haas Racing named Parker Kligerman as the backup driver for Kurt Busch during the NASCAR All-Star Race and the Coca-Cola 600. Busch is attempting to drive in the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600 on the same night. Kligerman is on standby for Saturday’s race in Concord, North Carolina as Busch flies in after Indianapolis 500 qualifying. Busch is set to race in the May 25 Indianapolis 500 and then fly to the NASCAR race. Kligerman was selected in case Busch is unable to practice, qualify or potentially start his No. 41 Chevrolet because of a schedule conflict or logistical issue. Kligerman has made 10 Sprint Cup starts, 51 NASCAR Nationwide Series starts, 50 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts and 23 ARCA Racing Series starts. In the event Busch does not make it back to Charlotte on time, Kligerman will start the Coca-Cola 600. Upon Busch’s arrival, Kligerman will yield the seat of the No. 41 to Busch and finish the race.
Poor grades lead to postseason bans INDIANAPOLIS — Thirty-six Division I athletic teams will face postseason bans next fall because of subpar scores on the NCAA’s annual Academic Progress Rate. Seventeen of those teams play either football or men’s basketball. Last year, 17 teams in all faced postseason bans because of poor academic results. The APR is billed as a realtime measurement for all teams and is based on a points-system that rewards athletes for staying academically eligible and staying in school. This year’s four-year measurements, released Wednesday, cover the period from 2009-10 through 201213. The report shows a twopoint improvement among all athletes, going from 974 to 976. A perfect score is 1,000. Of the four most visible sports, men’s basketball made the greatest improvement, going from 952 to 957. None of the teams banned from the postseason are from power conferences. Of the 17 football and men’s basketball teams, eight are from historically black schools. Alabama State and Florida A&M made the list in both sports.

Pirates get three in ninth to top Brewers BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
When prosecutors made their charging decision, they said there was not enough evidence to charge Miles, who was with Stringfellow. Miles started one game last season as Keith Price’s backup, and figured to start this year as a sophomore but missed all of spring practice. Without Miles around during spring practice, Jeff Lindquist and Troy Williams got the bulk of the reps at quarterback. Neither has thrown a pass in a college game. Washington also announced tailback Ryan McDaniel has retired because of a knee injury.
TRACK & FIELD
1948 Olympic sprint champion dies LOS ANGELES — Mel Patton, a double gold medalwinning sprinter at the 1948 London Olympics and a fivetime NCAA champion, has died. He was 89. Southern California said Wednesday that he died May 9 in Fallbrook, California, near San Diego. Patton set world records in the 100- and 220-yard dashes. He ran a worldrecord time of 9.3 seconds in the 100 in 1948, and he ran 20.2 seconds in the 220 on a straightaway in 1949 to break Jesse Owens’ world mark. His time in the 100 still ranks second on USC’s all-time list and his 220 time remains a school mark. He won the 200 and was on the gold medal-winning 400-meter relay in London. He finished fifth in the 100, and ranked first in the world in the event in 1947 and 1949. He owned the No. 1 world ranking in the 200 from 1947-49.
tion was especially critical considering how Splitter and the Spurs were able to contain Aldridge. After averaging 29.8 points in Portland’s upset of Houston in the opening round, Aldridge was limited to 21.8 points. “I don’t know maybe you can tell me,” Aldridge said when asked about the Spurs’ defense.“I had the same looks. I actually got to the rim more in this series than in last series. I just missed easy shots. I have to be better for us to win.I definitely didn’t play well in this series so it was tough for us to win games.” Even with Parker slowed, the Spurs still had another good start thanks to their hustle on the boards. Tiago Splitter had two offensive rebounds in the opening 3 minutes. The Spurs, who were averaging 9.3 offensive rebounds in the postseason, had five in the first quarter alone.
